Dexter GordonBoth Sides Of Midnight (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Black Lion/ORG, 1967. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the first great European statements from tenorist Dexter Gordon – a 1967 live recording that really lets Dexter stretch out, and show an even deeper side of his talents than on his 60s albums for Blue Note! The rhythm section here is rock solid – Kenny Drew on piano, Neils Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums – a unit that still retains the sharpness of the Blue Note dates, but also has the energy to "go long" as Gordon pushes a few of the numbers on the set well past the ten minute mark. Gordon's solos are wonderfully imaginative and expressive – and titles include "Devilette", "For All We Know", "Doxy", and "Sonnymoon For Two".

✨✧ Oscar PettifordLegendary Oscar Pettiford Featuring Attila Zoller ... LP
Black Lion (UK), 1959. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of those rare European sessions by Pettiford that far outshines most of his American work from the 50s! The set's a very hip one – cut with a quartet that includes German modernists Hans Koller on tenor and Atilla Zoller on guitar, plus American Jimmy Pratt on drums. Pettiford plays a bit of Cello on the set, and the string treatment that he delivers, next to Zoller's unique style of guitar, really makes the album a great one. Added to all of this is Koller's fantastic tone on tenor – an icy cool one that slices through the guitar and bass with dexterity. Titles include "Cohn's Limit", "Oscar's Blues", "Blues In The Closet", and "The Gentle Art Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Slide HamptonWorld Of Trombones (West 54) ... LP
Black Lion/West 54, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's no lie, as Slide Hampton's working here with a very trombone-heavy group – a lineup that features 8 other players on the instrument - including Clifford Adams, Curtis Fuller, Papo Vasquez, Steve Turre, and Earl McIntyre! The only other music in the group is from the trio of Albert Dailey on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Leroy Williams on drums – and Hampton's deft arranging skills really hone the larger group of players into a wonderful groove – one that still allows a fair bit of solo space, but which never lets things get cliched in a too-brassy sort of way. There's a leanness here that's really surprising, and at many points the rhythm section seems to drop out and let the trombones handle most of the sound in the set. Titles include "Con Alma", "Impressions", "Chorale", "Lester Leaps In", and "Lament". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound is quite "out" overall – really jamming in an almost free jazz sort of way at times – showing the growing boldness and confidence of the Arkestra, as they keep ahead of the pack of all the younger artists they've inspired by this point in their career. Titles include "Saturn", "Song of the Sparer", "Spontaneous Simplicity", and "Outerspaceways Incorporated". LP, Vinyl record album

Musea/Lion, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wicked collection of French prog and fusion from the start of the 70s – all with a jazzy or folky vibe that shows just how wonderfully warm the French scene was at the time – and how it could be very different than similar music coming from Germany, England, or Italy during the same stretch! All tracks here were recorded live, and although the groups are varied, the sound is surprisingly unified – with loads of funky fusion moments that are kind of an offbeat, outside take on styles that American groups were just beginning to explore – with some especially strong keyboard moments that point the way towards directions that Herbie Hancock would take a few years later. There's a few other tunes that bring in acoustic elements, almost with an acid folk sound – and titles include "Charles" by Catharsis, "Arkham" by Spectre, "Mekanik Kommando" by Magma, "Informers Blues" by Zabu, "Jappy's Boogie" by Solitude, "All's So Comic" by Ergo Sum, "I'm On My Way" by Voyage, "Promenade"b y Claude Engel, "Aria Populaire" by Catherine Ribeiro & Alpes, and "Iguane" by Alain Markusfeld.

Nice 2LP set that brought the US some of the great recordings cut by the Art Ensemble while they were in Paris (some of which have also come out under the Black Lion imprint). All of the material was recorded in the Polydor Studios in Paris in 1969, and the tracks include "The Spiritual", "Tutankhamun", "Toro", "Tthintthedalen", and "Lori Song". The feel of the tracks is very laidback, spare, and similar to the material on People in Sorrow, which was recorded during the same period. LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note (Spain), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An undisputed masterpiece by Lee Morgan – and one of the first records in which he shed his straight bop sensibility, and began evolving into a soulful genius for the 60s! The album's got 4 long tracks that all build beautifully – really extended numbers that break the format of some of Lee's earlier work, and hint a bit at some of the more complicated touches he'd use on later sessions. All players are great – and include fellow Jazz Messengers Bobby Timmons on piano and Art Blakey on drums, plus Jackie McLean on alto and Paul Chambers on bass. Titles include the sublime "These Are Soulful Days" – a perfect model of soulful lyricism – plus "Midtown Blues", "Nakatini Suite", and "The Lion & The Wolff". LP, Vinyl record album

Kudu, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully soulful lines over the top on soprano sax! The album's got some really wonderful funk tracks that feature a mad mix of drums, bass, and lots of that Bob James "space" – including the massive cuts "Hydra" and "Knucklehead" – both of them magic! Other tracks include "Moonstreams", "It Feels So Good", and "The Sea Lion". LP, Vinyl record album

Barney WilenZodiac ... LP
Vogue/Be! (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the coolest albums ever from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – a set that's legendary not only for its famous cover image, but for all the wonderful music underneath! The record's maybe the strongest to deliver on the modern promise that Wilen exhibited in his music during the 60s – but also has a tightness that makes it quite different from some of his more loopy projects – a way of putting things together that's bold and modern, yet also wonderfully controlled as well! As you might guess from the title, the record's based around the twelve phases of the Zodiac – and each tune has a slightly different sense of energy – all delivered by Wilen on tenor, with Karl Berger on vibes and piano, JF Jenny Clark on bass, and Jacques Thollot on drums – all players who are reaching towards free jazz modes, but often hang slightly inside, which makes for a beautiful balance overall. Titles include "Cancer", "Lion", "Vierge", "Capricorne", "Balance", "Scorpion", and "Poissons". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leo ParkerRollin With Leo ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those great "never was" Blue Note sessions – recorded in the 60s, but never issued until years later – even though the label had assigned it a cover, title, and catalog number! The album was the last session by baritone sax player Leo Parker – a bop and R&B legend who sadly passed along at the young age of 36, but left a really rich legacy of music. Parker has a way with the baritone that's almost as lean as a tenorist – blowing the horn with sharp, well-placed notes that really make this session cook – somewhere in the R&B-influenced territory of Don Wilkerson's work on Blue Note. Other players include the great Dave Burns on trumpet – always a welcome presence on any date – plus Bill Swindell on tenor sax, Johnny Acea on piano, Al Lucas or Stan Conover on bass, and Wilbert Hogan or Purnell Rice on drums. Tracks include "The Lion's Roar", "Rollin With Leo", "Jumpin Leo", "Talkin The Blues", "Mad Lad Returns", and Illinois Jacquet's "Music Hall Beat". LP, Vinyl record album

Arista, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
The classic first album from Hiroshima – a group who took the 70s experiments in Japanese fusion right into the American mainstream – with a wonderful blend of jazz and soul, and a production style that was never too polished or commercial! The group's led by reedman Dan Kuramota – who plays both sax and flutes, including a bit of Japanese wooden flute – which gives the record a few slight "Eastern" touches a times, although the overall vibe is strongly in the best soulful fusion of the period! In keeping with that approach, there's a bit of vocals on the record – sung in English with a soulful vibe – on titles that include "Lion Dance", "Da Da", "Taiko Song", "Holidays", "Never Ever", and "Kokoro".

Lionel HamptonAir Mail Special ... LP
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of the standout gems from Lionel Hampton's 50s sessions for Verve – wonderful small combo recordings that let Hamp stretch out in freer solo space than usual! Although the Hampton fame always lay in his popularly-touring bigger band, and all its related pyrotechnics, we've always loved Lionel's sound in a more intimate setting – and the way his ringing tone on the vibes prefaces work to come in later years by Bobby Hutcherson, Steve Nelson, and others – bold, soulful, and surprisingly modern at times. There's a metallic quality to the solo work on these sides that we really like a lot – and which offers a nice contrast to Milt Jackson's vibes of the period through its more powerfully pronounced understanding of the instrument's tone. The core group is a quartet – with Oscar Peterson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums – and half the set features the clarinet of Buddy DeFranco. All tracks are nice and long – almost jam-session style – and titles include "Soft Winds", "Airmail Special", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "It's Only A Paper Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel's vibes are mixed with tight drums, sweet bass, and some very soulful arrangements that make even the mellower tracks feel like they've been lifted from some lost blacksploitation soundtrack. Includes great versions of 2 Willie Henderson tunes – "Off Into A Black Thing" and "Funky Chicken", both of which sound even better than the originals with the vibes in place – plus the tracks "Easy", "Shut Your Mouth", "I Found Sunshine", and "One Man Band".

Brunswick, 1972. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great little set of instrumental tracks from Lionel Hampton – almost more soul than jazz, and set to some hipper than usual Brunswick Records arrangements – by the likes of Eugene Record, Willie Henderson, Sonny Sanders, and Hamilton Bohannon! The setting is a great showcase for Hamp's vibes – which always had plenty of punch, even back in the swing generation – and turn out to be an excellent fit for later 70s soul styles too. Bohannon turns out the best track on the album – the slow funky sample cut "Happiness", which steps along at half pace, and sounds like one of the killers from his own Stop & Go album! Other tracks are all pretty great, too – and titles include "Without You In My Life", "I Never Had It So Good", "There It Is", "Wrapped Up In Your Warm & Tender Love", and "Sing A Little Song".

Dare 2, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual group, with a sound that's certainly the sum of its wonderful parts – but also different in ways you might not expect! The lineup is excellent – the legendary Dave Holland on bass, Lionel Loueke on guitar, Chris Potter on tenor and soprano sax, and Eric Harland on drums – all working together in these very groovy styles that seem to have Holland pulling a lot more bold basslines than usual – almost as if he's using an electric version of the instrument, although it appears to just be an acoustic with a pickup! There's a soulful vibe to the record that you might not expect – shades of color and tone that are maybe closest to Loueke's music, but also very different than his own records – and Potter's really great in this setting, and blows with these open lines that are still as angular and sharp as usual, but maybe a bit warmer too. Titles include "Blue Sufi", "Aziza Dance", "Summer 15", "Walkin The Walk", and "Finding The Light". LP, Vinyl record album

The format for the album is in the mode of Hampton's early 50s Verve sides – long tracks, very open-ended, cut in a small group format that shows a different side than his more popular big band grooving. There's only 5 tracks on the album – and the focus is on solo work by Hamp and Getz, with rhythm by Lou Levy, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne.

Lol CoxhillEar Of The Beholder (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dandelion/Radiation, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the weirdest, most wonderful albums ever cut by saxophonist Lol Coxhill – way more than just improvised jazz, and exactly the best sort of a record to show his connection to the larger British music scene! The feel here is a bit like the albums that Coxhill recorded with Steve Miller for Virgin, but even more offbeat – a blend of solo saxophone lines, electronic experimentation, processing and effects, and other added instrumentation. Coxhill speaks a bit on the set, almost in a Ivor Cutler sort of way – and he gets a bit of help from David Bedford, Jasper Van'Thof, and Mike Oldfield. Some tracks are short and more "sound" oriented, others are longer, and more free jazz sounding, but all are pretty darn wonderful – and titles include "Rasa Moods", "Feedback", "Two Little Pigeons", "Hungerford", "The Rhythmic Hooter", and "A Series Of Superbly Played Mellotron Codas".

✨✧ Cameron GravesPlanetary Prince ... LP
Mack Avenue, 2017. New Copy ... On May 26, 2017
A fantastic debut as a leader from pianist Cameron Graves – an artist you might know from Kamasi Washington's album The Epic – and an even more tremendous talent when he gets his own chance to shine in the spotlight! Graves has a very bold, righteous vision here – a mode that's in the same California Get Down spirit as Washington's music, but with more focus on the structures built up by the piano – almost a post-modal approach, with soaring spiritual currents – served up not just by Graves on the keys, but also by Kamasi Washington on tenor, Philip Dizack on trumpet, and Ryan Porter on trombone! The three horns have a way of wrapping together as a core, then soaring to the skies – while Graves pumps up the movement with a great deal of energy, and the soloists break off on their own. The group also features bass from Thundercat on two tracks, and Hadrien Faraud on the rest – plus drums from Ronald Bruner. Graves produced – which gives the record a very different feel than other Mack Avenue releases – and titles include "Isle Of Love", "The Lucifer Rebellion", "El Diablo", "Adam & Eve", "Planetary Prince", "The End Of Corporatism", and "Satania Our Solar System".

Dudley MooreBedazzled – Original Soundtrack (with bonus CD) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... $19.99
A fantastic soundtrack for an incredibly groovy film – a landmark British comedy that received some sublime musical treatment from Dudley Moore – who was one of the stars of the movie! Moore's a surprisingly great jazz pianist, and provides a rich blend of jazz instrumentals, groovy larger cuts, and a few wild vocal tracks with a mad mad sound! The album's well-remembered for the fuzzy-breakbeat classic "Bedazzled" and Peter Cook's vocal on the mad rocker "Love Me" – and other tracks are a perfect blend of styles that recall the best of Henry Mancini or Neal Hefti from the same time – the best 60s blend of jazz, mod, and loungey styles. Titles also include "The Millionaire", "Moon Time", "Strip Club", "Sweet Mouth", and "Cornfield", a lively jazzy groover! Especially incredible in this Trunk LP version is the bonus CD that it comes with – featuring uber-rare, improvised promotional radio spots made by Moore & Cook just days before the film's release – titled Peter Cook & Dudley Moore Cordially Invite You To Go To Hell!

Tommy TurrentineTommy Turrentine ... LP
Time, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the most fantastic hardbop albums of all time! Tommy Turrentine was the less-famous trumpet-playing brother of Stanley Turrentine – but he was a hell of a player in his early days, and he cut some amazing records with his brother during the younger years of his career. This is the only record we've ever seen that features him as a leader – but the session's a monster, with the kind of razor-sharp hardbop playing we'd stack up there with must-have LPs like Art Blakey's Freedom Rider, Hank Mobley's Caddy For Daddy, or the legendary Young Lions session on Vee Jay. The group features a number of players who were working with Max Roach at the time – including Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Julian Priester on trombone – as well as Roach on drums, Horace Parlan on piano, and Bob Boswell on bass. Titles include "Gunga Din", "Too Clean", "Time's Up", "Long As You're Living", "Blues For JP", and "Webb City". LP, Vinyl record album
