✨✧ Dave Burrell & David MurrayBrother To Brother ... CD
Gazell, 1993. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Spare sax and piano duets from two Daves – Burrell and Murray, both working together here in a space that's surprisingly warm, and usually a bit more inside than some of their other avant sessions of this nature! There's a warmth to Burrell's piano we've really never heard before, and which we love – and Murray responds by blowing some of his more soulful tones on the date – mostly on tenor, but a bit of bass clarinet too. Titles include "Icarus", "The Box", "Dancing With Monika", "What It Means To A Woman", "Brother To Brother", and "New Orleans Blues". CD

Pucho & The Latin Soul BrothersJungle Fire! ... LP
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
One of the greatest albums by this funky Latin combo! The record differs from some of their earlier Prestige albums in that the tracks are longer, more instrumental, and have a hard fuzzy electric groove. The band jams hard in a way that's more like some of the funk combos of the early 70s, than the Latin groups from which they came – and that's no problem by us, because the results are wonderful! Includes two funky numbers written by Sonny Phillips – "The Spokerman" and "Jamilah" – plus a great extended cover of "Cloud Nine". Great horn work from the funky Pazant Brothers, plus Seldon Powell, who also plays flute and tenor on the album – and other jazz funk stars on the album include Bernard Purdie, Billy Butler, and Neal Creque, Pucho's right hand man!

Randy BreckerScore ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A very cool early Randy Brecker album – recorded years before he was working in tighter, R&B-inflected styles – and was instead an up-and-coming player with a surprisingly sharp edge! The set's produced by Duke Pearson, and has a groovy sound that's similar to Blue Note dates of the late 60s – jazz at the core, but a willingness to bring in some other pre-fusion elements – most notably the electric piano of Hal Galper, which sounds great next to drums from Bernard Purdie and bass from Eddie Gomez! Brother Michael plays tenor, and Galper wrote a lot of the tracks – with that good groovy electric funk sound that he did so well at this time. Titles include "The Vamp", "The Weasel Goes Out To Lunch", "Pipe Dream", "The Marble Sea", and "Bangalore". LP, Vinyl record album

Cal TjaderCal Tjader Quintet ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $9.99
A great little Latin session from Cal – recorded with extra percussion from Benny Velarde and Luis Miranda, plus rhythm from the Duran brothers, Manuel (piano) and Carlos (bass). The groove's nice and heavy, pretty driving on most cuts, a perfect foil for Cal's jazzy vibes. Titles include "A Minor Goof", "Laura", "Lullaby In Birdland", "Undecided", and Cal's classic reading of Tito Puente's "Philadelphia Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album

WashburnSassy – Old School Style ... CD
Milan, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A sweet contemporary take on the soulful jazz styles of the 70s and 80s – one that's got a lot more bite and authentic vibe than some of the more polished smooth jazz sets on the market! Gary Washburn isn't going for any sort of commercial crossover here – and instead, just wants to explore some of his favorite influences – from a time when jazz musicians could get together in the studio, and come up with sounds that were tight, but never too uptight – music that was different than a live performance, and which knew how to use the studio to best effect – yet still retain a nicely spontaneous vibe to the music. Gary wrote most of the material, and brother Kent helped with production – and players include Jesse Snyder on tenor, Ricky Woodard on flute, Bill Noble on alto, and Doug Johnson on vibes. A few cuts have nicely soulful vocals from Maelan Abran and Conrad Giminez – and titles include "Moon Song", "Ornamental Smile", "Shadow Samba", "Effloresce", "May 78", and "Come Closer To My Side".

Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathTravelling Somewhere ... CD
Cuneiform, 1973. Used ... $9.99
One of the few recordings available from the classic period of Chris McGregor's famous Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – the African-tinged jazz combo that grew out of the wreckage of the ex-patriation of South Africa's Blue Notes ensemble as it mixed with members of the London scene in the late 60s. The resultant group was one of the most compelling cross cultural moments in jazz history – a mix of players that included Dudu Pukwana, Mongezi Feza, Nick Evans, Harry Beckett, Harry Miller, Evan Parker, and Louis Moholo. This live set was recorded in Bremen, Germany in 1973 – and it easily ranks with the best of the group's studio work, and (dare way say it?) may be their most perfect realization of the idiom they always promise, yet sometimes didn't deliver. Titles include "Wood Fire", "The Bridge", "MRA", "Restless", and "Kongi's Theme". CD

Terell StaffordBrotherLee Love – Celebrating Lee Moegan ... CD
Capri, 2015. Used ... $6.99
Trumpeter Terell Stafford pays tribute to one of our favorite jazz musicians ever – the late genius Lee Morgan, who lives again here in a sparkling set of compositions from his crucial jazz years of the 60s! Stafford's got a style that's a bit different than Lee, which makes for a fresh approach to these tunes – but the overall format of the record is very faithful to the spirit of Morgan's recordings back in the day – with a no-nonsense quintet that includes Tim Warfield on tenor, Bruce Barth on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Dana Hall on drums – all recorded with the sort of Blue Note emphasis on depth and tonal color. Titles include "Yes I Can No You Can't", "Carolyn", "Hocus Pocus", "Mr Kenyatta", "Petty Larceny", and "Stop Start" – plus Stafford's own "Favor". CD

✨✧ Weldon IrvineLiberated Brother ... LP
Nodlew, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Landmark early work from the legendary Weldon Irvine – recorded way back when he was first coming to fame with Nina Simone, but done as an obscure indie effort for his tiny Nodlew label! The set's a wicked batch of keyboard-heavy funk – at a level that's similar to some of the best titles on Black Jazz or Strata East at the time, but also filled with an even richer array of colors and musical ideas. Weldon's work on electric piano is worth the price of admission alone – often spare, spacious, and perfectly placed – especially on the funky classics "Homey", "Mr Clean", and "Sister Sanctified" – a tune later cut by Stanley Turrentine, but heard here in Weldon's original version! Other cuts include "Gloria", "Juggah Buggah", "Blues Wel-Don", and "Liberated Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie & The Mills BrothersBoard Of Directors ... CD
Dot (Japan), 1967. Used ... $11.99
A late 60s swinger from The Mills Brothers – with the aging vocal group get some great assistance from the Count Basie Orchestra! By the time of this sessions, The Mills Brothers had been recording for at least 4 decades – and although their early hits had gained the group a great deal of fame, their career as a whole was fading considerably in the 60s. Enter Basie, whose group was still very much at the top of its form in the decade – thanks to a great ear for transforming older tunes into fresher takes, and newer tunes into more swinging jazz-based vehicles. Working here with arranger Dick Hyman, the Basie group gives the Mills Brothers a soaring, bouncing kind of support – one that takes their vocals, tightens them up, and really sends the tunes home with a nice sort of zing! Old and new numbers come off great in the setting – and titles include "Release Me", "I Want To Be Happy", "Down Down Down", "I Dig Rock & Roll Music", "Let Me Dream", "April In Paris", "I May Be Wrong But I Think You're Wonderful", and "Tiny Bubbles".

Craig BrannConversation Between Brothers ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A beautiful album from guitarist Craig Brann – and maybe the first to really display all the richness of his talents! Most tunes here are originals by Brann, penned with an ear towards open flow that really lets the guitarist take off – and use styles of phrasing that clearly draw on so many more influences than just jazz – a range of compelling chords and unusual inflections that get plenty of strong exposure in a trio setting with Nick Morrison on bass and Matt Wilson on drums. Given the songs, and Brann's style, the whole thing feel's quite different than the usual guitar trio album – as you'll hear on titles that include "Poetic", "Keith-Ar", "Conversation Between Brothers", "Faux Pass", "Isle Of View", and "Folksong For Ethan".

Brecker BrothersBottom Line Archive Series 1976 ... CD
Bottom Line, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Wonderful live work from the legendary Brecker Brothers – cut at a time when the duo were still totally hard and funky – maybe even more so here than on their studio albums of the time! The live setting really brings out a crackle in the group – lots of funky rhythms at the bottom,a nd these breakout solos from Randy on trumpet and Michael on tenor – as well as a young David Sanborn on alto, Steve Khan on guitar, and Don Grolnick on Fender Rhodes and Hammond! Most vocals are kind of chorus chants by the whole group instead of a solo singer – vamping strongly in this way that really fits the groove nicely. Titles include "Rocks", "Cactus", "Sneakin Up Behind You", "It Took A Long Time", "Keep It Steady", "Night Flight", and "Jungle Walk". CD

Bob Brookmeyer/Jimmy GiuffrePortrait Of The Artist/Four Brothers Sound ... CD
Collectables, 1958/1960. Used ... $5.99
Two classics of modernist jazz on one CD! Both records are from the Atlantic studios, and they're both quite tough to find on wax. Brookmeyer's Portrait Of The Artist is one of his best works, and features him on piano and trombone, playing with largeish groups over a suite of tracks entitled "Blues Suite", plus the cuts "Mellow Drama", "Darn That Dream", and "Out Of Nowhere". The real treat, though, is Jimmy Guiffre's rare Four Brothers Sound album – a record that uses early overdubbing techniques to let Giuffre play four tenor sax parts at once! The sound is amazing, and although he's backed by usual trio-mates Brookmeyer and Jim Hall, Brookmeyer plays piano, and the set has a bit more swing than usual. The 4-tenor frontline is wonderful, and titles include "Four Brothers", "Ode To Switzerland", "Space", "Blues In The Barn", and "Memphis In June". CD

Brother AhhMove Ever Onward ... CD
Divine/Ikef, 1975. Used ... $11.99
Cosmic righteousness from Brother Ahh – an enigmatic musician who worked briefly with Sun Ra, and continued an exploration of the sonic heavens on his own! This rare 1975 album features Ahh's Sound Awareness ensemble – a 25 piece group that features a host of voices set to percussion, flutes, and other intimate and evocative instrumentation. The feel's quite hard to describe – kind of a cross between Sun Ra and Moondog, with the righteous style of vocalization that you might find on some of the Max Roach experiments with voices, recorded in the relaxed and expressive style of the early AACM – all of which means it's a great little record, with a very striking approach! Titles include "Transfiguration", "Nature's Children", "Transcendental March", "Boundless Rhythm", "Sweet Illumination", and "Celestial Strings". CD

✨✧ Brother AhhSound Awareness ... CD
Strata East/Manufactured, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99
A very trippy album from the enigmatic Brother Ahh – aka Robert Northern, former member of Sun Ra's Arkestra, and also a lecturer on the east coast! This album's his first, originally issued on the Strata East label – and a spacey mixture of other-worldly sounds. The first long track on the album is entitled "Beyond Yourself (The Midnight Confession)", and features a group with Ahh on flutes and "natural" sounds, plus cello by Pat Dixon, percussion by Barbara Burton, and soprano voice by Barbara Grant. The track's a "sound journey in 7 parts" – floating across space with a mystical feel that slowly unfurls. The other long track on the set is "Love Piece", a tune in which Ah plays flute along with percussion by Max Roach and the M'Boom percussion ensemble – plus a 90-voice chorus, and a short rap by Roach. Very spiritual stuff! CD

✨✧ Brother Ahh & The Sounds Of AwarenessKey To Nowhere ... CD
Manufactured/Divine, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99
Cosmic righteousness from Brother Ahh – aka Robert Northern – best known for his work with Sun Ra, but a force behind some wonderfully soulful records of his own! This album's one of Ahh's later works – self-released in 1983, with a conception that's fuller than his earlier works – almost in an Alice Coltrane spiritual mode, with tracks that emphasize consciousness, healing, well being, and awareness. Ah plays flute and French horn on the album – and other instrumentation includes percussion by Nasar Abadey and Barbara Burton-Tuten, bass from Mike Bowie, harp and mbiri from Jeff Majors, and guitar from Marvin Tuten. Most tracks are instrumentals – building in a nice Phil Cohran-ish way – but a few numbers feature vocals. And titles include "Sekou", "Nature's Blues", "Key To Nowhere", "Hanifah", "Motherless Child", "Celebration", and "The Void". CD
