Jason MoranAll Rise – A Joyful Elegy For Fats Waller ... LP
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A stunner of a set from Jason Moran – hardly the easy Fats Waller tribute you might guess from the title, and instead a sweet electric session that's filled with soul, and a quality that's a real change from some of Moran's other music! The record was co-produced by Meshelle Ndegeocello, who also sings on the set at times – and it's got a blend of jazz and vocals that's not far from some of the other Blue Note projects of late – especially from the Roberg Glasper camp! A few tunes are definitely older Waller numbers, or standards that Fats might have played – but Moran's handling is very untraditional – with lots of Fender Rhodes or Wurlitzer organ, and vocals from singers who include Ndegeocello, Lisa Harris, Charles Haynes, and Leron Thomas. Thomas also plays trumpet, and the group also features trombone from Josh Roseman and tenor from Stephen Lehman – on titles that include "Put Your Hands On It", "Yacht Club Swing", "The Joint Is Jumpin", "Two Sleepy People", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Fats Elegy", and "Handful Of Keys".

Leon SpencerWhere I'm Coming From ... LP
Prestige, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Badass organ funk from the mighty Leon Spencer – a set that's got a bit of a fuller feel than some of his previous albums for Prestige – but a groove that's also equally great! The style here is somewhere between blacksploitation funk and some of the grooves from the CTI/Kudu camp – with a bit more horns than before on some of the titles, arranged tightly to provide a great foil for Leon's leaner lines on Hammond! Arrangements are by Ed Bogas on the fuller tracks, and players on the album include Hubert Laws on flute, Frank Wess on baritone, Victor Paz and Virgil Jones on trumpet, Joe Beck on guitar, Melvin Sparks on guitar, and Grady Tate on drums. One track features Leon working in a smaller trio format – and titles include "Superstition", "Give Me Your Love", "The Price A Po Man's Got To Pay", "Where I'm Coming From", and "Trouble Man".

Ben WilliamsComing Of Age ... LP
Concord, New Copy ... Around April 21, 2015
Bassist Ben Williams definitely comes of age here – serving up a set that's warmly balanced between acoustic and electric modes from the leader, and from the other musicians in the group! The album's got an open, soulful vibe that's not unlike some of the best contemporary projects on Blue Note in recent years – particularly those from the Robert Glasper camp – maybe a bit more straightforward than those, but with a wonderfully rich vibe – and just the right amount of space for guest stars who include Stefon Harris on vibes, Christian Scott on trumpet, and Goapele and W Ellington Felton on vocals. The core group has lots of great Fender Rhodes – plus soprano and tenor sax from Marcus Strickland – and titles include "Black Villain Music", "Voice Of Freedom", "Lost & Found", "The Color Of My Dreams", "Toy Soldiers", and "Half Steppin".

✨✧ Donald ByrdKofi (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1969/1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of tracks that was recorded at the cusp of the 70s, but which wasn't (for some strange reason) released until many years later! Donald Byrd's playing here with two different larger groups, and the music is a perfect bridge between his spacey late 60s attempts to mimic Miles Davis, and his tighter early 70s jazz funk work with Larry Mizell. The instrumentation's a bit different than usual, and includes a warm frontline of Frank Foster on tenor, Lew Tabackin on flute and tenor, and William Campbell on trombone – all working with these charts that are full and flowing – really strong, soulful elements that get some further great touches from Duke Pearson on Fender Rhodes! Rhythms echo some of Pearson's own great music of the time, with lots of Brazilian undercurrents – no surprise, given that Duke produced the record – and titles include "Kofi", "Fufu", "Perpetual Love", and "Elmina".
