A great reminder of the important contributions to jazz that Saheb Sarbib made back in the 80s – especially when he could cook up a richly collaborative session like this! The groove is relatively straight, but the players are nicely freewheeling – just what you'd expect when you've got a lineup that includes Ahmed Abdullah and Roy Campbell on trumpets, Jemeel Mondoc and Mark Whitecage on alto sax, Booker T and David Pate on tenor, Guilherme Franco on percussion, and even a bit of guest tenor from Frank Wright! Sarbib has this Mingus-like way of forging the whole ensemble together with tightness – yet letting the individual voices burst out beautifully too – and even though the record's got some slight electric bass, most of the best energy is acoustic. Titles include "New York Party", "Get In Line", "East 11th Street", "One For Lacy", and the great "Aisha" suite.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Roaratorio, 2011. New Copy
A pairing of sax and trumpet player Joe McPhee and drummer Chris Corsano – recorded live in Paris on the duo's European tour in spring '10!

Transition/Delmark, 1956. New Copy (reissue)
Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records!

Stars Have Shapes
Delmark, 2010. New Copy
The most amazing records to date from Rob Mazurek's Exploding Star Orchestra – just the kind of cosmic, spiritual session you'd expect from the group's name – perfectly placed in a Chicago lineage that includes Sun Ra's Arkestra and the best years of the AACM! The group's got all the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/OJC, 1953/1954. New Copy (reissue)
A full length set that compiles earlier sessions cut under either the name of Thelonious Monk or Sonny Rollins – most of them together in the same group!

Simigwa
Academy, 1975. New Copy
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Glitterbeat (Germany), 1995. New Copy Gatefold
A previously-unreleased live performance from the legendary Lobi Traore – and a wonderful way to hear the power of his music at work on the scene in Mali! The performance has a crispness that's different than some of Traore's studio recordings – maybe a bit more spontaneous and ... LP, Vinyl record album
