Raymond Scott & The Secret 7Unexpected ... CD
Top Rank/Basta, 1960. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A great musical mystery – and one of Raymond Scott's jazziest albums of the 50s! The group on the session is Scott's "Secret 7" – a batch of unnamed jazz musicians, most likely playing here out of contract with other labels, hence the secret nature of their work on the album! In keeping with the nature of the original album, the players also aren't listed here – save for one undeniable talent, the mighty Toots Thielemans, who contributes some great sounds to the combo grooving on the set. The format is kind of a mixture of Scott's wilder arrangements from previous years, with some of the small chamber jazz work that was coming out of the east coast at the time – and although the record was originally issued on Top Rank, it's got a feel that's very much in keeping with much of the RCA sessions of the time. There's a few nice sound effects and studio tricks, but overall the real strength of the set comes from the instrumentation used – including Thelemans' harmonica, plus vibes, flute, and other more standard jazz instrumentation. Titles include "Waltz Of The Diddles", "Temptation", "In The Beginning", "A Message From Where", and "Quiet Entrance". CD

Peter Brotzmann & Walter PerkinsInk Is Gone ... LP
Bro, 2002. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A really surprising meeting of two legendary jazz talents – reedman Peter Brotzmann, and drummer Walter Perkins – the latter of whom you might know best for his soulful sides on the Chicago scene of the 60s! Perkins is a surprisingly great partner for Brotzmann here – really matching his unbridled energy on saxes with his own dynamic work on drums – making for a record that's one of Peter's boldest of the 21st Century so far, which is quite a surprise given Perkins' musical resume. Material was recorded live in Boston and Philly – and titles include "Grass Flowers The Wind", "The Beastfilled Dark & A Beautiful Forest", "Permanent Migration", and "Boot The Bastards Out".
