Chico FreemanOutside Within ... LP
India Navigation, 1981. Near Mint- ... $34.99
A great, expansive quartet side from Chico Freeman, where he's supported by John Hicks, Cecil McBee and Jack DeJohnette. Freeman's playing and writing has always fused his journeyman years with the AACM with the soulful, full-toned south side approach of his father, Von Freeman, and a very post-Coltrane spirituality, and he really stretches out nicely on this set. The first side of the album is nice lengthy number, "Undercurrent" and the second side has 3 more succinct numbers, "The Search", "Luna" and "Ascent". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a pen mark.)

Yusef LateefOutside Blues (aka Lost In Sound) ... LP
Trip, 1961. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Yusef Lateef's one and only album for the Charlie Parker label – cut during a period when he's been making real waves in the jazz scene with work on Prestige and Savoy! The set's a bit more straight ahead than some of Lateef's more exotic sides of the time – focusing on his work on tenor, and going for a soulful hardbop approach that relatively upbeat and swinging, with traces of the work that Lateef was doing in the Cannonball Adderley group of the time. Players on the album include Vincent Pitts on trumpet, John Horman on piano, Ray McKinny on bass, and either George Scott or Clifford Jarvis on drums – and all tunes save two are originals, with titles that include "Outside Blues", "Blue Rocky", "Introlude", "Train Stomp", and "Trudy's Delight". 2nd pressing of the album Lost In Sound – with a cover that's different than the original.

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffOutside Looking In ... LP
LC, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Jimmy hits a bit of a CTI groove here – working with larger backings from Brad Baker, but still in a style that's got a heck of a lot of soul, despite the smoothness! There's plenty of great space for solo work on the set, and Jimmy Ponder is especially nice in the format – hitting some warmly chromatic solos that still have plenty of invention too – and which sound very sweet alongside Jimmy's work on organ and keyboards. Other soloists include Hank Crawford and Eddie Daniels, and titles include the funky moogy classic "Tapioca", plus "Outside Looking In", "Dust Pan", "Walkin Willie", "Midnight Boogie", and "Playland".

Herbie HancockQuartet ... LP
CBS, 1982. Near Mint- 2LP ... $13.99
Acoustic magic from Herbie Hancock – proof that he wasn't only cutting electro records in the 80s! The set's got a fluid, open feel that's a bit like some of the VSOP Quintet work – although the group here is slightly different, with Hancock on acoustic piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus a young Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – stepping in where Wayne Shorter and Freddie Hubbard left off. The tracks are somewhat sharp-edged and modern, but never in a way that's too outside – more just a continuation of the VSOP mode, with some of the Marsalis love of darker colors and tones. The double-length set has plenty of room for long solos – and titles include "Well You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Clear Ways", "A Quick Sketch", "The Eye Of The Hurricane", "Parade", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Wonderful live work – and a lot more outside than some other volumes! The set features a searing trio track – "Umbrella Dance" – with Yosuke Yamashita on piano and Akira Sakata on alto – plus a side-long track titled "Planetarium", by a quartet with Guido Manusardi on piano and Pier Francesco Guidi on tenor and soprano sax!

Sunny Murray's Untouchable FactorApple Cores ... LP
Philly Jazz, 1978. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of the hippest, tightest sessions ever recorded by drummer Sunny Murray – a large group set recorded with his Untouchable Factor group – a great ensemble that includes Frank Foster on soprano sax, Oliver Lake and Arthur Blythe on alto saxes, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Don Pullen on piano, and Cecil McBee and Fred Hopkins on bass! The sound is somewhat straighter than Murray's free jazz of a few years before – almost in the mode that Foster was exploring with some of his large ensembles of the 70s – a platform for righteous jazz expression, but in a way that's still tied together strongly with a sense of rhythm. Other players on the group include the enigmatic Youseff Yancy on a host of instruments, including theremin – plus the under-recorded Monette Sudler on guitar. Some tracks are a bit more outside than others – and titles include "Past Perfect Tense", "One Down & One Up", "Applebluff", "Apple Cores", and "New York Maze". LP, Vinyl record album

Max RoachEasy Winners ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1985. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Great work from Max Roach's Double Quartet of the mid 80s – a group that wasn't just an octet, but an expansion of Max's regular four piece group with the addition of a string quartet! The core jazz sound of Odeon Pope's tenor, Tyrone Brown's electric bass, and Cecil Bridgewater's trumpet is expanded by a string group that includes Maxine Roach on viola – and that family relation is probably one reason that made experimentation like this easy for Max! The approach is a surprisingly great one – as the quartet seems to hold the Roach group a bit more inside than before – letting Pope and Bridgewater stretch out on their solos, but not get as sloppy as they had in some of the more outside Roach quartet outings. And the strings color in things really nicely in classic "with strings" jazz mode – but one that echoes more with 70s soul jazz use of such styles than earlier approaches. Titles include "A Little Booker", "Easy Winners", "Sis", and "Birds Says". LP, Vinyl record album

Heiner StadlerBrains On Fire Vol 2 ... LP
Labor, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Pianist Heiner Stadler was a key part of the New Jersey underground of the late 60s and early 70s – and although he wasn't the greatest avant garde pianist in the world, he was fortunate enough to have his own record label, and to be able to work with some of the better talents of the scene on his own record. Case in point is this album, which features the track "Love In The Middle Of The Air", an extended duet between Reggie Workman on bass and Dee Dee Bridgewater on voice – really a wild one, and quite different than most of Bridgewater's work done in later years. The track's a key part of her career (not to mention Workman's), and Stadler fortunately stayed out of the set to let the pair improvise together freely. Side two features two shorter tracks – "UCS" and "Pointed" – more outside, and played with groups that include Tyrone Washington, Garnett Brown, Workman, and Lenny White. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Labor pressing. Cover has some seam splitting.)

John Surman, Alan Skidmore, Tony Oxley, et alJazz In Britain 1968/1969 ... LP
Decca/Eclipse (UK), 1968/1969/1972. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A rare 1972 album that brings together (then) previously-unissued material from the cutting edge of the late 60s British jazz scene – 5 longish tracks that feature different and unique groupings of musicians that include John Surman, Alan Skidmore, Mike Osborne, Harry Miller, Kenny Wheeler, and John Taylor! The work is all at the level of the best recordings by all players for Deram and other labels at the time – and while you might expect that such unreleased recordings might be rougher-edged, or more experimental, most of the tracks on the set have a relatively straightforward sound – modern to be sure, but mostly not-outside, and filled with the best sense of color, tone, and searching energy that we love in the UK scene of the time! One track, "Bouqet Garni", is a bit out – as it features a spare three sax lineup of Surman on baritone, Skidmore on tenor, and Osborne on alto – but the others are more tightly structured group affairs, titles that include "Circles On Ice", "Winter Song", "Bessie", and "Shepherd Oak".

George WallingtonJazz For The Carriage Trade ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint- ... $18.99
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all players that help push the record with a tremendous amount of hardbop and modern jazz energy! Byrd and Woods are at their best youthful prime on the set – and the longish tracks really give both artists room to stretch out and show off their talents! Titles include "Foster Dulles", "Together We Wail", "Our Delight", and "But George". LP, Vinyl record album

Cedar WaltonEastern Rebellion (Muse) ... LP
Timeless/Muse, 1975. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A seminal work in the development of the career of Cedar Walton – the formation of his excellent Eastern Rebellion ensemble, a group that became a platform for soul jazz expression for the next two decades! The group on this set features George Coleman on tenor, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all working in territory that Walton and Clifford Jordan were exploring heavily at the time – long, drawn-out soul jazz tunes – frequently built upon modal rhythms, and touched with traces of post-Coltrane blowing. The key factor, though, is that the work's never too outside, never too overindulgent – just hard-swinging soul jazz, in a 70s expression of the older Blue Note ideal! Titles include "Bolivia", "5/4 Thing", "Mode For Joe", and "Naima". LP, Vinyl record album
(US Timeless/Muse pressing. Cover has a small bit of wear in the top left corner.)

VariousBlack Fire New Spirits – Deep & Radical Jazz In The USA 1957 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 3LP ... Just Sold Out!
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Volume 1 ... LP
Dobre, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An undated Cannonball Adderley live set – but most likely from the early 70s, given that the group features electric keyboards by Mike Wolf, bass by Walter Booker, and drums by Roy McCurdy. The album has the group opening up a lot more than on Cannon's live sets for Capitol – playing straight, soul jazz, and even a bit more outside material – and some of the tracks feature a great deal of opening remarks from Cannon. Titles include "Five Of A Kind", "Country Preacher", "Wobum", and "Unknown Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneOm ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio – initially in the spirit of Love Supreme, but much sharper-edged and unbridled overall – as if the meditative spirit of the previous recording had unlocked a sense of freedom that refused to be tied down to simple structures! The group is great – and features Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – plus a bit of flute and percussion from Joe Brazil. The playing is much freer than on other albums of the time, but also has some introspective spiritual moments – clearly inspired by the Love Supreme recording, but taken a shade outside as well!

✨✧ King Fleming TrioWeary Traveler ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
King Fleming's third trio side for the Argo label, another variety of standards with a few Fleming originals thrown in for good measure. In the Chicago piano trio tradition of Ramsey Lewis or Ahmad Jamal (who actually followed in Fleming's footsteps), this set covers soulful ballads like "Dearly Beloved" or "I Remember You" and bluesy originals like Fleming's "Darn It" and "Riff A Plenty". Like Von Freeman, King Fleming's is a voice seldom heard outside of Chicago, while quietly influencing many of the more well known stars to come to prominence on the national and international scene.

A highly percussive set from the hipper side of the Norweigian jazz scene of the 70s – one that features drums and percussion from Pal Thowsen and Jon Christensen, in a format that has each player in a different channel of the record! Instrumentation also features some bass by Arild Andersen and guitar from Terje Rypdal – but the main focus here is really the percussion, shifting back between rhythmic and melodic roles – often a bit free in structure, but never too far outside – and recorded in a mode that's halfway between ECM and FMP. Titles include "The Tamborim", "PT", "Only Two", "Mauve Stripes", "May 17", "No Time For Time", and "More Cymbals". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny PhillipsMy Black Flower ... LP
Muse, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although Sonny Phillips was one of the funky organ players to record for Prestige during the classic jazz funk years, by the time of this recording, he'd emerged as a more spiritual talent, with a looser, freer approach, and a much more open-ended vibe. This 1976 session is a good example of that – as it moves beyond simple funky jazz, into a realm that shows Phillips picking up a lot of outside influences, and going for a style that was mellower, more laidback, and a bit more cosmic – while still hitting some nice funky moments. The set was recorded by Houston Person, and features Phillips on piano and organ, with backing by Ben Dixon, Jimmy Ponder, and Ralph Dorsey. Titles include "Salaam 7", "Goin Home", "My Black Flower", and "Jalal". LP, Vinyl record album
