Fred AndersonTimeless – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Delmark, 2005. Used ... $7.99
One of the last live dates captured at Fred Anderson's original Velvet Lounge location – a hotbed of creative jazz energy in Chicago, summed up here perfectly by the power of performance! Anderson's working in a trio with Harrison Bankhead on bass and Hamid Drake on drums – free, but almost never too far out, and always with a tuneful sensibility that's really great – a tenor style that echoes some of the more creative moments of Von Freeman and earlier improvisers on the scene, yet which shows some of the bolder opportunities of Anderson's generation. Titles are all long, and include "Flashback", "Ode To Tip", "By Many Names", and "Timeless". CD

Creative Arts EnsembleOne Step Out ... CD
Nimbus, 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
An excellent bit of spiritual soul jazz on Horace Tapscott's Nimbus label – featuring a group led by pianist Kaeef Rauzadun that includes Henry Franklin on bass, George Bohannon on trombone, Wilbert Hemsley on tenor, and Gary Bias on alto and soprano sax. The album's also got some beautiful vocals from BJ Crowley – who co-leads the group, and sings out with a proud righteousness that recalls some of Dee Dee Bridgewater or Jean Carn's early early soul jazz recordings. The tracks are all long and spiralling numbers – never really "out", but in a free searching mode that's a perfect platform for the piano work of Ruzadun. Titles include "One Step Out", "Flashback Of Time", "All Praises Due", and "Stars In Lightyear Time". CD

✨✧ Art FarmerYou Make Me Smile ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Art Farmer really found a great home for his music on the Soul Note label in the 80s – a place where he could continue to grow strongly, in ways that almost let him find a new sort of edge in his horn! This album's a wonderful example of the strengths that Farmer found at the label – as the album's got an easygoing feel, but a bit more bit than some of Art's work of the 80s – a crisp tone in his own flugelhorn, which he'd mastered even more at the time, and some great support from the mighty Clifford Jordan on tenor, whose playing really adds a lot of depth to the session. Remaining players include Fred Hersh on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Akira Tana on drums – a pretty hip rhythm section – and titles include "You Make Me Smile", "Prelude No 1", "Nostalgia", "Flashback", "Souvenir", and "Have You Met Miss Jones".

✨✧ John AbercrombieFirst Quartet (Arcade/Abercrombie Quartet/M) (3CD set) ... CD
ECM (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of gems from this great group led by guitarist John Abercrombie! First up is Arcade – a record full of rich tones and cascadingly lyrical lines – and a set that features the wonderful pairing of John Abercrombie's guitar and the piano of Richie Beirach! Beirach seems to ground Abercrombie even more than usual – still letting John have those atmospheric qualities in his notes, but with a sense of flow and focus that we really appreciate – energy that might also come from the work of George Mraz on bass, and Peter Donald on drums. Tunes are simple and elegant, but say a hell of a lot with a little – and the album's maybe as perfect a summation of the ECM approach to guitar at its best as some of the early Pat Metheny albums. Titles include "Arcade", "Nightlake", "Neptune", "Alchemy", and "Paramour". Next up is a self-titled set from the John Abercrombie Quartet – that late 70s group that seemed to find one of the best matches for John's unusual phrasing on the guitar – with round, warm work on bass from George Mraz, equally great piano from Richie Beirach, and drums from Peter Donald. The songs are a mix of melodic moments and more chromatic shades – and titles include "Blue Wolf", "Dear Rain", "Stray", "Madagascar", "Foolish Dog", and "Riddles". M continues the charm of this group – and marks their last outing for ECM – on titles that include "Boat Song", "What Are The Rules", "Flashback", "M", "Veils", and "To Be". CD

Ole MatthiessenFlashbacks & Dedications ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Wonderful work from pianist Ole Matthiessen – an artist we especially love as a composer, thanks to his fantastic compositions on this set! The album's a small combo outing – but there's a richness to the tunes that grabs us right away – a balance of color and emotion that's careful, but also very organic – flowing from Matthiessen's hands on the piano, and illuminated beautifully by the tenor of Bob Rockwell and trumpet of Henrik Bolberg. Matthiessen's tunes are both lyrical and melancholy at the same moment – almost a bit like the wonderful compositions that Bill Lee did for the early films of Spike Lee. The rest of the group features Jesper Lundgaard on bass and Ole Streenberg on drums – and titles include "Love Song", "Drummer's Mare", "Ocbbct", "Voodoo Dance", "To Trane", "Light & Darkness", and "Miss Lise".
