IfIf ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Very Good- ... $7.99
One of the greatest jazz rock albums to come out of the British scene at the end of the 60s – a record that's filled with tight changes, bluesy overtones, and some wonderfully choppy moments – all played by a legendary lineup that includes Terry Smith on guitar, John Healing on organ, and Dick Morrissey and Dave Quincy on saxes and flute! Healing sings on a number of the tracks, but the vocals never dominate too much – and instead often let the instrumentation really take center stage, showing off the group's chops at their progressive best. Titles include some great long groovers like "What Did I Say About The Box, Jack?", "What Can A Friend Say", and "The Promised Land" – as well as shorter numbers that include "I'm Reaching Out On All Sides", "Woman Can You See", and "Raise The Level Of Your Conscious Mind".

IfIf 2 ... LP
Capitol, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The sweet second album from If – a Brit jazz-rock combo with a really great sound! The album was produced by Lew Futterman, the talent behind some of Jack McDuff's large-arrangement albums for Blue Note – and Lew seems to bring in a similar ambitious feel to the set that really brings the most out of the instrumentation. The group features some great organ and electric piano by John Mealing, and saxes by Dick Morrisey – and as always with this sort of thing, there's some vocals that sound a bit dated – but the overall feel is still quite strong, especially in the breakout instrumental passages. Titles include "Your City Is Falling", "Shadows & Echoes", "I Couldn't Write & Tell You", and "Sunday Sad". (Rock, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe HendersonJoe Henderson Quintet At The Lighthouse (If You're Not Part Of The Solution plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Milestone, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great electric set – recorded at the Lighthouse in 1970, in that slightly funky mode of Joe's best work from the time! Joe Henderson's beautiful soloing style, honed at this point on a number of fine Blue Note recordings, is set free in a band that includes Woody Shaw, Lenny White, and George Cables, who plays beautifully on electric piano. Tracks include new versions of "Mode for Joe" and "Blue Bossa" – redone with a sweet gliding 70s groove – plus "Carribean Fire Dance", "If You're Not Part Of The Solution, You're Part Of The Problem", and "Round Midnight". The core original album If You're Not Part Of The Solution is expanded with tracks pulled from the Joe Henderson box set – making for a 10-title package that recaptures the whole original performance. Extra tracks include "Recorda-Me", "Isotope", "A Shade Of Jade", and "Invitation". CD

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffIf You're Ready Come Go With Me – The Super Funk Collection ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky early 70s work by Jimmy McGriff – a mix of tight groovers and more open soul jazz numbers – all of which represent some of his best moments for the Groove Merchant label! Jimmy's got a lean, mean sound on these tracks – and even when the backings are full, they've got the tightness of a 70s soundtrack – nice and jazzy, and with a great funky punch on the bottom! The McGriff keyboard sound has plenty of room to roam around, even when the cuts are short – and titles include a great cover of "Ain't It Funky Now", plus "Super Funk", "Fat Cakes", "Dig It On", "Bug Out", "If You're Ready Come Go With Me", "Let's Saty Together", "The Bird", "Plain Brown Bag", "Jumpin' The Blues", "Tiki", and "Shuckin & Jivin".

✨✧ Susana Santos Silva/Torbjorn Zetterburg/Hampus LinIf Nothing Else ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful continuation of the spirit of the previous collaboration between trumpet and flugelhorn player Susana Santos Silva and bassist Torbjorn Zetterberg – but a record that also adds in a cool extra element with the organ of Hampus Lindwall too! The music has this spacious, open quality – these tonefull lines from Silva which flow out in space, but which also have a quality that's not nearly as cold as, say, an ECM session of this type – thanks to the always-amazing, always-soulful work of Zetterberg on bass – who gives the record an organic grounding, which is then supported by Lindwall's lines on organ. And we're not exactly sure what type of organ he's using, but at times it almost feels like a pipe organ – as the sounds have both a depth, and sense of presence that really makes the music unique – even at points when his contributions are very low on the sonic totem pole. Titles include "Stop Chords", "Fiddling", "Distance", "First Initiative", "Second Initiative", "One Note Each", and "One Note Song". CD

Airto & The Gods Of JazzKiller Bees ... CD
MELT 2000 (UK), 1993. Used ... $6.99
The Gods of Jazz give plenty of help to Airto here – in a fair turn too, given that Airto graced some of their best records in the 70s! The percussionist works here as the leader, amidst other players who include Herbie Hancock on piano and keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Chick Corea on keyboards, Gary Meek on tenor and soprano sax, and Hiram Bullock on guitars – all sounding quite spare and spacey at certain points on the record – with a groove that's much more abstract than both their own usual work, and what you might expect from Airto. It's almost as if these heavyweights have decided to loosen things up a bit in the company of Airto – getting a bit more experimental with his percussion to drive them on. Flora Purim serves up a bit of vocals – and titles include "Be There", "Banana Jam", "Killer Bees", "City Sushi Man", "See Ya Later", "Nasty Moves", and "Communion". (Brazil, Jazz) CD

Mose AllisonI'm Not Talkin – The Song Stylings Of Mose Allison 1957 to 1972 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Mose Allison is one of the coolest, grooviest singers ever to grace the face of jazz – a voice you'll recognize instantly, even if you don't know his name – and an artist who had a huge influence on the sound of the London scene in the 60s! Mose was mod before mod was a thing – and was able to mix his sharp jazz skills on piano with a gutbuckety style of singing that drew heavily from the sound of New Orleans – as did his sense of rhythm – but always with an approach that was more upbeat and jazzy overall, with a hip sophistication that few other artists could hope to touch! And while Mose recorded excellent sounds for decades, this collection focuses in on some of the most important work he ever cut – music done for Prestige, Columbia, and Atlantic Records from the late 50s through the early 70s – served up in the most amazing tribute to Allison we've ever seen. 24 tracks in all – with cuts that include "Foolkiller", "I'm Not Talking", "If You Only Knew", "The Seventh Son", "I'm Smashed", "Wild Man On The Loose", "Back On The Corner", "I Love The Life I Live", "Jus Like Livin", "If You Live", "V8 Ford Blues", "Parchman Farm", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Western Man", "Your Molecular Structure", "Hellow There Universe", and "Swingin Machine".

✨✧ Gene AmmonsSock! ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A striking title – and a strong set of grooves, even if the tracks were pulled from a variety of different sessions, and not recorded as a unified album. Jug plays tenor on all cuts – working in formats that range from a Mal Waldron led trio to larger honking groups with horn players like Henderson Chambers, Cecil Payne, Nate Woodward, and Gene Easton. Tracks are short, and most are pretty rocking – with titles that include "Blue Coolade", "Short Stop", "Scam", "Sock", "What I Say", and "Rock Roll". LP, Vinyl record album

Clifton AndersonDecade ... CD
EmArcy, 2009. Used ... $4.99
It's been a decade since the last album as a leader from trombonist Clifton Anderson, but it's definitely been worth the wait – as the player has matured wonderfully over the years, working often with Sonny Rollins, and really finding his sense of space and soul! Anderson's got a very well-developed sound here – one that should easily make him one of the modern greats on his instrument, and one of the few to live up to a legacy started by players like JJ Johnson or Curtis Fuller many years back – tightly inventive improvisation on the trombone, creatively searching for new avenues of expression while also managing to always make things swing! That balance is a rare one, but Anderson's definitely got it – and he's helped ably by group mates who include Kenny Garrett on alto, Eric Wyatt on trenor, Larry Williss on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Titles include "So Wrong About You", "Noble", "Deja-Blue", "If", "Aah Soon Come", "Stubbs", and "Z". CD

Angles 9Disappeared Behind The Sun ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
A really fantastic set from this Swedish nine piece ensemble – a record that's overflowing with brash performance and unbridled energy – adventurous, but never totally free – and always given the right sort of focus to make things come across with a tremendous amount of power! The feel is almost like a Moserobie Records take on a Charles Mingus style – and the lineup features Martin Kuchen on alto and tenor – who also composed the album's five long tracks – plus Magnus Broo on trumpet, Matthias Stahl on vibes, Goran Kajfes on cornet, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Eirik Hegdal on baritone, Alexander Zethson on piano, Johan Berthling on bass, and Andreas Werliin on drums. If you know any of those players at all, you can imagine the greatness of the group – on titles that include "Adror", "Equality & Death", "Pacemaker", "Disappeared Behind The Sun", and "Love Flee Thy House".

Brian AugerBack To The Beginning Again – A Brian Auger Anthology Vol 2 ... CD
Freestyle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $9.99
A totally wonderful collection – even better than the first volume, and filled with rare and unusual work from this legendary British keyboardist! The set features loads of gems from Brian's early years – some mod piano rompers and heavy Hammond groovers – showing a very strong tie to the soul jazz sound of the early 60s, which then transforms into some excellent 70s groovers as the set moves in – work that's every bit as tremendous as the tunes that start out the set. Even if you've got some of Auger's albums in your collection, there's way more to discover here – and the set has a brilliant focus on the deepest, most soulful side of his music! Titles include "In & Out", "Love For Sale", "Pavane", "Maiden Voyage", "Black Octopus", "Ella", "Inner City Blues", "Brain Damage", "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend", "Funky Mama", "Moanin", "Straight Ahead", "Work Song", "Poinciana", and "Lament For Miss Baker". Even features notes on the music by Auger himself! CD

Chet BakerChet – Ballads By Chet Baker ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... $3.99
One of a handful of late 50s albums that Chet Baker recorded for Riverside – all of which are some of his last great 50s work in the studio, before a shift in the 60s to a wider-ranging approach to his music! The style here is definitely in the "classic" Baker mode set down for Pacific Jazz – but a bit more fleshed out by the other players in the set – who seem to push a bit more personality into the tunes, and not just let Chet's trumpet dominate. The sound is soft and gentle – as you'd expect from the title – and other players include Bill Evans, Pepper Adams, Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers, Connie Kay and Philly Joe Jones – all bringing a bit of a New York undercurrent to the west coast Baker solo style. Titles include "How High the Moon", "It Never Entered My Mind", "If You Could See Me Now", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Time On My Hands", and "You And The Night And Music". CD

Count BasieHigh Voltage ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Late niceness from Count Basie – and a set that definitely lives up to its name – a really high energy set, and one of the few times that Basie ever recorded for the MPS label! The group here works with sharp arrangements from Chico O'Farrill – who's got that punchy groove he was really perfecting in the 60s – a rhythmic snap that works just as well with the Basie group as Neal Hefti's charts did a decade before! Tunes are mostly standards, served up in a no-nonsense mode that's very heavy on the overall rhythmic conception of the group – but with some nice breakout solo moments, too – as you might hope for with a group that includes Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Eric Dixon on flute and tenor, Joe Newman on trumpet, Jerry Dodgion on alto, and Buddy Morrow on trombone. Titles include "Together", "If I Were A Bell", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Chicago", "Have You Met Miss Jones", "Day In Day Out", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". CD

Tony Bennett/Bill EvansTony Bennett Bill Evans Album (expanded edition) ... CD
Fantasy, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
If you've ever doubted the real jazz sensibility of Tony Bennett, then this is an album to change your mind – because Tony's working here in a marvelously unadorned setting – with only the piano of Bill Evans to back him up! The record's a rare gem from years after Bennett was cracking the pop charts, but was willing to pull back to the jazz of his roots – and the session's equally rare for Evans, who rarely worked with vocalists at this point in his career. The simplicity of the album is its strength – and together, the pair really sound tremendous – slightly faltering at times, but in a way that exposes a sense of humanity you might not find in other records, especially those by Bennett. Titles include "When In Rome", "Some Other Time", "The Touch Of Your Lips", "My Foolish Heart", "Waltz For Debby", and "Young & Foolish". CD also features 5 bonus alternate takes!

Josh BermanDance & A Hop ... CD
Delmark, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Tremendous work from the great Josh Berman – one of the most important musicians on the Chicago underground scene of the past decade or so – not just for his work on cornet, but also for his warmly collaborative and supportive spirit! That quality really comes through here – on a trio date that has Josh's horn with Jason Roebke on bass and Frank Rosaly on drums – all working together in this very special, very individual style – one that seems to embrace so many different decades of jazz at once – from the early trad phraseologists admired by Berman, to the postwar modern that's resurfaced in the recent Chicago scene, to the 21st Century experiments that all three members have engaged in! All the music is composed, but the performance has a looseness that almost feels improvised – save for the sense of cohesion in the tunes, and that no player ever steps too far outside – even though all of them are pretty darn freewheeling. We're not sure we've ever even heard a cornet trio before – but even if we had, there's never been anything like this – as you'll hear on titles that include "Cold Snap", "Today's Date", "Mint", "Your Uncle", "Time/Trouble", "Wooden", "Bridges", and "Luggage".

Josh BermanOld Idea ... LP
Delmark, 2009. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Old Idea, maybe, but a fresh, engrossing and straight up excellent set of modern jazz with an ear for classic avant garde – coronet player Josh Berman's debut as a leader! We're not sure if Berman has shown admirable patience and restraint in waiting until he felt ready to get put out marquee record of his own as leader, or if he's just been so swept up in being such a dynamic part of so many other exceptional improvisational projects (Exploding Star Orchestra, Rolldown, etc), but it's a really strong record, and we hope he stays active in this capacity! It's a quartet setting, with Rolldown leader Jason Adasiewicz on vibes and bringing some excellent atmosphere to the record, Keefe Jackson on tenor sax, Anton Hatwich on bass and Nori Tanaka on drums. Kinetic, unpredictable, but very, connectively textured and grooving. Josh handles all of the compositions, and the LP version has 6 numbers: "On Account Of A Hat", "Let's Pretend", "Nori", "What Can?", "Db" and "Almost Late". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersAt The Cafe Bohemia Vol 1 (Non RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1955. Used ... $3.99
A classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham – one of the earliest and purest versions of Blakey's hardbop vision, touched with the slightly exotic lyricism of Silver, which gives the tracks a wonderful edge. The playing is excellent throughout – and the album's the kind of live stormer that shows why the group were such a huge draw right out of the box, and why they performed as well (if not better) in a live setting than they did ain a studio one! Tracks include "Minor's Holiday", "The Theme", "Prince Albert", and "Deciphering The Message" – and the CD features 3 bonus tracks, all long, plus great remastering! CD

✨✧ Art Blakey & Thelonius MonkArt Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk ... CD
Atlantic, 1957. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Angular Monk meets hard-driving Art Blakey – in a session that's quite unique, and which has gone onto become one of the best-remembered Atlantic jazz sessions of the late 50s! The album features Blakey in that key non-Blue Note year of 1957 – a time when he was working with a variety of players, at a variety of labels, and taking some real chances with his music before settling into his more established hit Jazz Messengers sound. The group here is Art's own – with Johnny Griffin on tenor, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Spanky DeBrest on bass – augmented by the piano of Thelonious Monk – a match that might seem unlikely at first, but not so much so after you consider the great work that Monk and Griffin did together at Riverside during the late 50s. There's a nice match between Johnny's sharp-edged tenor and Monk's imaginative playing – and if anything, the record has Blakey, Hardman, and DeBrest moving dynamically to keep up with the flurry of modern ideas coming from Griffin and Monk! Tracks are almost all originals by Thelonious too – a fact that definitely helps keep up the "Monk-ish" sound of the record – titles that include "Evidence", "Blue Monk", "I Mean You", and "Rhythm A Ning" – alongside Griffin's "Purple Shades".

Carla BleyLive! ... LP
Watt, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
Great sounds from the Carla Bley band of the 80s – and a record that still has all the modern elements of Bley's initial years in jazz, but also brings in some warmer elements too! If anything, these years unlocked a playfulness that we might not have expected from Carla years before – and also help focus on a soulful style that really comes through with the larger lineup here – one that's filled with modern players, but who seem to work together almost as a commentary on more mainstream modes of the time – familiar, yet still slightly offbeat at points too. The lineup features Michael Mantler on trumpet, Steve Slagle on alto and soprano sax, Tony Dagradi on tenor, Gary Valente on trombone, Vincent Chancey on French horn, Arturo O'Farrill on piano, Steve Swallow on bass, and Bley on organ – and titles include "Blunt Object", "Still In The Room", "Song Sung Long", "Real Life Hits", and "Time & Us".

Paul BleyImprovisie ... CD
America/Bamboo (France), 1972. New Copy ... About July 25, 2017 (delayed)
Incredible work from Paul Bley – and a record that captures him in his excellent electric period, working in a different setting than we've heard him elsewhere! The group on the set is a trio – one that matches Bley's work on electric piano and synthesizer with percussion from Han Bennink and vocals, piano, bass, and additional synthesizer from a young Annette Peacock! Peacock is especially restrained on the record – especially if you only know her later, straighter work – and her contribution here is wonderfully subtle and extremely lovely. Side one features the track "Improvisie", a free improvisation with Bley on electric piano and synthesizer – and tonalities are as "out" as the playing, which is generally quite spacious and dynamic – though hardly quiet. The second side features a Peacock tune titled "Touching" that's a bit more intense – very much in the spirit of the work on the first side, and a unique slice of magic from this one-off session! CD

A great record by Paul Bley – even if it is a bit gimmicky! Bley was certainly not one of the world's greatest synthesizer players, but this album from 1970 is a wonderful batch of tunes written by Annette Peacock, and they have Bley playing a lot more soulfully than on other records from the time. Backing is by acoustic drum and bass, and Bley plays a bit of acoustic piano on the record – but the real highlight are the choppy rhythmic chunks of electronics, played in a style that sounds very little like Bley's other work. Believe it or not, there's even a few nice groovers on here – although most of the record is in a downtempo mode. Titles include "Parks", "Mr Joy", "Archangel", "Snakes", Gary", and "Nothing Ever Was, Anyway". CD
