✨✧ Herb AlpertFandango ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet Latin-styled set from trumpeter Herb Alpert – but one that's got a very different vibe than his faux Latin grooves of the 60s! The set here is done with key contributions from both Juan Carlos Calderon as a songwriter, and Jose Quintana as a producer – both talents who really help Herb reshape his groove in a mighty nice way! Backings are big, and somewhat smooth – as in the "Rise" era – but there's also some Latin jazz elements in the mix too, and an overall approach that isn't nearly as cluttered as you might expect for the time – with an especially strong emphasis on Herb's trumpet solos in the lead. The set was the first issued on the A&M Latin label – AyM Discos – and also features a bit of Spanish language vocals as well. Titles include "Fandango", "Route 101", "Angel", "Aria", "Sugarloaf", "Coco Loco", "Latin Medley", "California Blues", and "Push & Pull". (Now Sound, Jazz) CD

✨✧ IrakereIrakere (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial or slick, but free from some of the jarring shifts in styles that occurred before – and more in that sweet combination of rootsy percussion and Latin funk that made them great at their best previous moments! All players are great – and the lineup is almost a who's who of Cuban jazz at the time – with Chucho Valdes on piano and keyboards, Paquito D'Rivera on alto sax, and Arturo Sandoval on trumpet – plus guitar from Carlos Emilio Morales, percussion from Oscar Valdes, and tenor from Carlos Averhoff. The tracks were recorded live at the Montreux jazz festival – and titles include "Adagio", "Ilya", "Juana Mil Ciento", and the long "Misa Negra (The Black Mass)". CD features bonus tracks "Baila Mi Ritmo", "Xiomara", and "Por Romper El Coco". (Latin, Jazz) CD

Bob Downes Open MusicBlowin With Bass ... CD
Bob Downes Music (UK), 1975/1978/1981/2005. New Copy ... $9.99
Beautiful sounds from legendary UK reedman Bob Downes – tracks released in a relatively unassuming package, but with a vibe that makes the set one of Bob's most soulful, spiritual records ever! The title's a bit of a gimmick, but it works perfectly here – as Downes blows a variety of reeds in the company of four different bassists, each recorded at a different time – a lineup that includes Barry Guy, Paul Bridge, Andrew Cleyndert, and Marc Meggido – in performances recorded between 1975 and 2005, but presented here with a surprisingly unified feel. Downes sounds tremendous throughout – at that level that we've discovered on some of his self-released records like this, which arguably is even higher than his better-known 70s material – playing flutes, tenor, alto, soprano, and other instruments next to warm, round, open tones from each bassist. Titles include "Occidental Oriental", "Dawn Dreams", "Just A Minute", "Bluesing", "Coasting", "Cocowanna", "Starburst Galaxy", and "Dark Corners". CD

Stan Getz5 Original Albums Vol 2 (Jazz Samba/Jazz Samba Encore/With Laurindo Almeida/Getz Gilberto/Getz Gilberto 2) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $19.99
An insane collection of music – five albums that perfectly showcase the bossa nova genius of Stan Getz! First up is Jazz Samba – one of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia". Jazz Samba Encore is hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time of the record, and arguably one of the few who really got it going back home in Rio. Stan's tenor sounds wonderful – as carefully and soufully blown as on the first set, but also with some new colors and tones too. Bonfa's wife Maria Toledo sings a bit on the record – hinting at Stan's work to come with Astrud Gilberto (this album was cut right before the Getz/Gilberto collaboration) – and the record also features added work on piano and guitar from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim – more than enough proof that the album's got a pure bossa pedigree! Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ebony Samba", "Saudade Vem Correndo", "Sambalero", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Mania De Maria". With Laurindo Almeida is one of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Getz Gilberto is a landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". Getz Gilberto 2 is a very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato".

Phineas NewbornPlays Harold Arlen's Music From Jamaica ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest albums from the early years of Phineas Newborn – a large group session from the pianist, and one with a very different feel than some of his trio sides! The music is all from the Harold Arlen musical Jamaica – but the groove is pure Newborn all the way, and a lot more soulful than anything you'd hear on Broadway! Phineas' piano somehow seems even more fluid than usual – and it's set up in a great group with really wonderful guitar work from Les Spann, who's clearly the second biggest voice on the date – plus Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, Sahib Shihab on alto and baritone, Ernie Royal on trumpet, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone. Willie Rodriguez and Francisco Pozo add in some great extra percussion to the tunes – further helping the groove – and titles include "For Every Fish", "Take It Slow Joe", "Pity De Sunset", "Napoleon", "Little Biscuit", "Coconut Sweet", and "Push De Button".

✨✧ Matthew StevensPreverbal ... CD
Crystal M+th/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Guitarist Matthew Stevens works here in a style we might call post-fusion – as it's got all the electric energy of the genre in the 70s – but also opens up in so many different sonic and textural possibilities! The album really blurs the line between individual performance and larger sonic palette – as the guitar and keyboards of Stevens are woven alongside the bass of Vincente Archer and drums and added electronics of Eric Doob – often with gentle distortion that creates washes of sound between the instruments – maybe as much post-ECM as the style we proposed at the start. Esperanza Spalding sings on the track "Our Reunion" – and all other instrumental titles include "Undertow", "Sparkle & Fade", "Picture Window", "Cocoon", and "Reservoir". CD

✨✧ Ulysses Owens JrFalling Forward ... CD
Spice Of Life (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little trio – one that's led by drummer Ulysses Owens, but which also features some great vibes by Joel Ross, and nicely strong work on bass from Rueben Rogers! The trio's got a compact, soulful vibe – and Owens' drums are more than dynamic enough to have the record exploding off in some surprising twists and turns – energized in a great way that really seems to draw the best out of all three players! Ross' has some bold chromes on his instrument, which come through strongly even in the mellower moments – and on the album's very last track, the group gets guest help from Stephen Feiftke on piano and Vuyo Sotashe on vocals. Titles include a nice take on the Roy Ayers tune "Cocoa Butter" – plus "Yakhal Inkomo", "Evidence", "I Guess I'll Have To Forget", "My Shining Hour", "Spectrum", "Sleep On It", and "Farewell To Dogma".
