Michel PortalTurbulence ... LP
Harmonia Mundi (France), 1987. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Nothing too turbulent here, as the album's a beautifully-crafted session from reedman Michel Portal – full of unusual tones, odd sounds, and weird shapes – but all put together with a gentle quality that really holds things together! The material is still as vividly creative as Portal during his early years, but has a care that really comes through – a keen ear for sounds that really work well together, crafted out of instrumentation that includes Portal on bass clarinet, sopranino sax, and baritone sax, plus some bandoneon – along with Andre Cecarelli on drums, Mino Cinelu on percussion, Richard Galliano on accordion, Claude Barthelemy on guitar, Bernard Lubat on keyboards, JF Jenny-Clark on bass, and Jean Schwarz on "sound treatments"! Titles include "Basta", "Metis", "Djam's", "Pastor", and "Mozambic". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene AmmonsNothin' But Soul (Up Front) ... LP
Winley/Up Front, Early 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very nice record, and one of the rarer sides by Gene Ammons. We can't remember the exact story behind this, but we know that the material was recorded by Jug during the early 60's, when he was violating his contractual agreements with a number of labels, and recording sessions for just about everybody. Paul Winley caught him then, and put him in the studio with Howard McGhee and guitarist Jake Fisher, for this cool laidback soul jazz session that's probably one of Jug's most open-ended from the time. The tracks are all long, with a lot of room for solo space, and a round mellow tone. Winley has his name on all of the writing credits, which is probably false (the lying bastard!), and titles include "Housewarmin", "Nothin' But Soul", and "Jug & McGhee". LP, Vinyl record album
