✨✧ Afro-Cuban Jazz ProjectTributo A Emiliano Salvador ... CD
Yemaya (Spain), 2000. New Copy ... $8.99 14.95
A wonderfully-done session of Latin jazz – played by a combo formed to pay tribute to the music of Cuban composer Emiliano Salvador! The group on the set is totally great – and features piano by Chuco Valdes, trombone by Juan Pablo Torres, tenor and flute from Juan Manuel, and congas from Tata Guines – all coming together with a number of other players, working in a style that's deeply soulful, and which often has more of a focus on the jazz component of the tracks than usual! The horn work is especially great on the set – arcing and dipping with some heartfelt turns that bring a nice edge to the tracks, and which remind us a bit of the styles we love on some of the older work by Bobby Vince Paunetto. Titles include "A Puerto Padre", "Angelica", "En Una Volanta Actual", "Jazz Plaza", "En Una Manana De Domingo", and "Danza Para Cuatro". (Latin, Jazz) CD

Noel McGhieNoel McGhie Afro-Carribean Project – Re-Masters ... CD
Marge (France), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
We've loved drummer Noel McGhie in many modes over the years – including free jazz and funky fusion – and here, he's working in a very cool hybrid of jazz and Caribbean styles – with some island-styled rhythms inflected by solo work on trumpet, guitar, and alto sax! The sound is much brighter than some of Noel's early work – that might also have to do with the production – and his work on drums is almost funky at times, but with a bit more complication in the rhythms overall. Players include Patrick Sedoc on guitar, Daniele Vigilucci on alto, and Rasul Siddik on trumpet – and one track features a vocal appearance from Awa Timbo. Titles include "The Jump", "Footprints", "Mademoiselle Tulloch", "Rockin In Rhythm", and "My Little Suede Shoes". CD

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceManhattan Project ... LP
Beehive, 1978. Sealed ... $6.99
Excellent later work from trumpeter Dizzy Reece – best known for his classic late 50s sides on Blue Note and New Jazz, but heard here as part of a great flurry of 70s revival sessions! The work's got an arch modern tone that's really surprising – almost a bit like Ted Curson at times, which is no surprise, since he and Reece were playing together a bit in the late 70s. Tracks have a nice "statement" quality – played by a bold group that includes Clifford Jordan, Charles Davis, Albert Dailey, and Roy Haynes – tight in formation on the themes, but breaking loose with some great work on the solos. Titles include "Con Man", "Manhattan Walk", "Yule On The Hudson", and "One For Trane". LP, Vinyl record album

Motema, 2013. Used ... $3.99
A vivid large ensemble work from bassist Rufus Reid – penned in dedication to artist/activist Elizabeth Catlett, and featuring a bolder range of sounds than you're likely to hear from some of Reid's more intimate recordings! The core quartet features Rufus on bass, Steve Allee on piano, Vic Juris on guitar, and Herlin Riley on drums – mixed with much larger orchestrations that features Tim Hagens and Tanya Darby on trumpets, Steve Wilson on alto and soprano sax, Scott Robinson on tenor and clarinet, and Vincent Chancey on French Horn. Charenee Wade adds in some very cool wordless vocals at times – and most of the tracks are quite long, with lots of room for individual solos. Titles include "Singing Head", "Tapestry In The Sky", "Mother & Child", "Recognition", and "Glory". CD

Willem Breuker KollektiefWillem Breuker Kollektief ... LP
About Time, 1984. Very Good+ ... $5.99
American greatness from this seminal Dutch ensemble – a set recorded in the US when the group were really hitting on all burners – linking together rich strains of modern jazz in the course of a single performance! There's a great blend of tight concepts and freer solos going on here – and reedman Breuker is still very might at his most inventive – playing with a rich, feeling sort of tone, and moving through lots of new ideas – and never falling into some of the easier or more gimmicky modes that might normally hamper a project like this. Other musicians include Andre Goudbeek on alto, Maarten Van Norden on tenor, Andy Altenfelder and Boy Raaymakers on trumpet, and Bernard Hunnekink on trombone – and titles include "Women's Voting Rights", "Sylvia's Proposal", "Benares", "Kontrafunkt", "Song Of Mandalay", and "Amsterdam Rhapsody Overture".

Dee Dee Bridgewater with Irwin MayfieldDee Dee's Feathers ... CD
Okeh, 2015. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
A really beautiful project from the great Dee Dee Bridgewater – a set that has the singer paying tribute to the city and culture of New Orleans, but in a way that's free of the hoke you'd find in other projects of this nature! Dee Dee approaches the music – as with all of her albums – from a rock-solid, jazz vocal approach – focusing first on her tremendous skills as a singer – her fantastic ability to interpret material and really make it her own – then finding space for other flourishes that color the compositions, with great help from Irvin Mayfield, who's at the instrumental helm of the project. And the tunes aren't just some post-Katrina soppy numbers trying to recreate the past – but a wonderful array of different selections that both echo the still-thriving, still-essential jazz culture in the city, and the range of 20th century expressions of its music. Way better than you might guess – and one of Bridgewater's best in years! Titles include "Treme Song/Do Whatcha Wanna", "Dee Dee's Feathers", "Big Chief", "One Fine Thing", "Whoopin Blues", "Congo Square", and "C'Est Ici Que Je T'Aime". (Vocalists, Jazz) CD

An excellent issue of live material recorded by Brotzmann and some of Chicago's best players! The Chicago Tentet has sprung up as part of Peter Brotzmann's recent fruitful relationship with the Chicago underground jazz scene – and the group's gone on to have a life long past its initial formation as a one-off project. This Okka disc set captures the band live at the 16th Victoriaville Festival in 1999 – and it features performances by Brotzmann, Mats Gustafsson, Ken Vandermark, Jeb Bishop, Fred Lomberg-Holm, Kent Kessler, Michael Zerang, and Hamid Drake.

Marc CaryRhodes Ahead Vol 2 ... CD
Motema, 2015. Used ... $3.99
Plenty of Fender Rhodes here – and a bit of Hammond as well – in a set that's a wonderful follow-up to Marc Cary's earlier Rhodes Ahead project! The keyboards have this mellow flow all the way through – still some of the sharper edges of Cary's other music, but a vibe that's often a bit more relaxed and spacious – as Marc lets the keyboard lines almost move of their own accord, as they take his initial attack and spin it out nicely in space – alongside shifting instrumentation that includes Taurus Mateen on bass and Terreon Tank Gully on drums – plus trumpet from Igmar Thomas, tabla from Sameer Gupta, and djembe from Jabarei Exeum. The vibe is partly 70s, partly contemporary cosmic – and titles include "Astral Flight 17", "Spices & Mystics", "Below The Equator", "The Alchemist's Notes", and "7th Avenue North". CD

CookersCall Of The Wild & Peaceful Heart ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Maybe the boldest album so far from The Cookers – a tremendous assemblage of legendary jazz talent, working together as a perfect unit on this recording! There's a sharpness and sense of unity that really holds the record together – part of which comes from the arrangements, by Billy Harper or trumpeter David Weiss – the only slightly younger member of the group, and a great guiding voice to the project. Speaking of voices, Billy Harper's is loud and proud – that soaring, spiritual tenor that we love so much – especially on the group's readings of his compositions – and in addition to Harper and Weiss, other group members include Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Donald Harrison on alto, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. There's a balance of darkness and light that really makes the album sparkle – and titles include "Call Of The Wild & Peaceful Heart", "Beyond Forever", "Third Phase", "Teule's Redemption", "Blackfoot", "Thy Will Be Done", and "Oceans Of Time".

Miles Davis & Robert GlasperEverything's Beautiful ... CD
Legacy, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Robert Glasper takes on the music of Miles Davis – in a set that's way more of Glasper's own than you might guess from the presentation! True, the tracks are all based around Miles Davis material from the Columbia Records vaults – but Robert really opens things up right away with his own sort of vibe, and uses the Davis elements to weave into a much larger fabric – one that incorporates a range of hip contemporary styles, in the manner of his great Black Radio projects! So while you will hear some of Miles at times – both playing and (even cooler) speaking – the real strength of the record lies in Glasper's amazing keyboards, especially Fender Rhodes, and the wonderful bass work of Derrick Hodge, whose bottom currents really make the whole thing glow with a subtle, soulful fire! And we haven't even gotten to the guests – a great lineup that rivals the sorts of folks that Robert had on the Black Radio project – as the record includes contributions from Stevie Wonder, Bilal, Phonte, Hiatus Kaiyote, Erykah Badu, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Illa J, John Scofield, Ledisi, and King. Titles include "They Can't Hold Me Down", "Ghetto Walkin", "Right On Brotha", "Milestones", "Song For Selim", "Little Church", "Violets", "Maiysha", and "Silence Is The Way". CD

Bob Downes Open MusicBob Downes & The Alphorn Brothers (with bonus Jazz Homage CD) ... CD
Bob Downes Music (UK), 1998/2015. New Copy 2 CDs ... $7.99
Reedman Bob Downes has always been a player willing to experiment in a wide range of styles – from his early jazz-rock experiments on the UK scene, to a wealth of spiritual and avant sides he's given us in the decades that followed! But this time around, he may be giving us his weirdest, most unusual project yet – but all with results that are surprisingly great, and hardly gimmicky at all – and that's really something, given that the record features Bob's reeds alongside a trio of musicians playing the long alphorns pictured on the cover! Downes uses those instruments to create these slow-building waves of sound – which he then contrasts with his own performance on alto, tenor, soprano sax, and flute – and the phrasing of the alphorns is surprisingly cool – somewhere between avant/experimental work on euphonium and trombone, but a bit more structured overall. Titles include "The Prowler", "Heading For The Blues", "Stomping", "Dawn Approach", "Tatsunori Hasebe", and "Reflections". 2CD package also features a bonus CD – Jazz Homage, recorded in 1998, a series of duets between Downes and pianist Mick Baumeister – on titles that include "Here We Go Rollins", "Homage To John Coltrane", and "Blues For Bird" – all tributes to the players in the titles!

Fire Orchestra (Mats Gustafsson)Ritual ... CD
Rune Grammafon (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Maybe the fullest, most ambitious project so far from the Fire Orchestra of reedman Mats Gustafsson – one that continues his strong legacy in avant jazz, but also reflects his deep understanding of other styles too – as the record weaves together vocal passages, noise, electronics, and even some slight global currents too! The album starts in friendly territory – almost a sing-song sort of vibe, complete with vocals from Mariam Wallentin and Sofia Jernberg, who seem to echo some of Gustafsson's work with Neneh Cherry – but as the album-long set progresses, it moves through a rich array of other sonic territory – aided by work from Susana Santos Silva and Niklas Barno on trumpets, Mats Aleklint on trombone, Jonas Kullhammar on braithophone and slide sax, Per Texas Johansson on clarinets and bartione sax, Andreas Berthling on electronics, and Mats himself on bartione and slide sax – as well as a number of others we don't have space to list here! By the end of the five-part "Ritual" suite, things move back to earth a bit more, with a return to vocals too – and our hats are off to Gustafsson for doing such a great job of putting the whole thing together!

Equistar, 1983. New Copy ... $11.99
A wonderfully obscure set of jazzy soul from keyboardist Billy Foster – a musician who's been making waves on the scene in Gary, Indiana for many decades – but has never fully gotten his due! This project captures a younger Billy – working in a soul-based mode that blends vocals with his own work on a variety of keyboards and acoustic piano – maybe an indie take on modes that artists like Rodney Foster or Bobby Lyle were exploring on the bigger labels at the time, but with a lot more charm. Vocals are by Glenda Eskew and Brenda Marshall McClure – and titles include the instrumental "City Lights", which has a nicely pronounced guitar solo by Henry Johnson – plus the tracks "As A Matter Of Fact", "Night Music", "I Need Your Love", and "It All Depends On You".

CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1980/1981. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of records from this great CTI Records group – plus bonus tracks too! Fuse One is tight funky fusion from a masterful collective – a great supergroup from the late electric years of the CTI label! The combo features Joe Farrell on tenor, Ronnie Foster and Don Grusin on keyboards, John McLaughlin and Larry Coryell on guitars, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Lenny White, Tony Williams, and Ndugu Chancler on drums – all top-shelf players, but artists who also really respect the vision of the whole project – and allow the grooves to develop without too much competition or overblown modes! The keyboards and guitar are a great match with Farrell's always-great lines on tenor – and titles include "Grand Prix", "Sunshine Lady", "To Whom All Things Concern", "Double Steal", "Waterside", and "Taxi Blues". Silk is the second album of funky fusion from this all-star CTI group that includes Stanley Turrentine, Stanley Clarke, Ndugu, Tom Brown, Eric Gale, Ronnie Foster, and George Benson! The ensemble come together for a great set of laidback fusion tracks that groove with a nice soulful undercurrent – surprisingly fresh, and not nearly as slick as you'd expect from the date of the session – showing that the original open-ended CTI vibe could still be strongly alive on the right records! Tracks have a great mix of acoustic and electric touches – and although Stanley Clarke was the musical director of the album, the whole thing's clearly a group effort. Titles include "Silk", "Hot Fire", "Sunwalk", and "In Celebration Of The Human Spirit". CD features bonus tracks – "Ode To A Kudu" and "Silk (7" version)". CD

Quite a groovy little record from writer Eloise Greenfield – done in a unique style that has the poet interacting with a set of children throughout – who sing and recite both lyrics and poetry, with this honest approach that almost recalls some of the hipper jazz/poetry projects on Folkway Records, or classic albums from Langston Hughes! The music is a big part of the album's success – as it's handled by the great Byron Morris, who shifts a bit from his own modal jazz and really creates some amazingly sensitive backdrops throughout. The vibe's a bit like a Bill Lee project from the same period – but with even more variety – and titles include the instrumental numbers "In My Father's Music House" and "Eyewitness News Bluze" – plus "I Look Pretty", "Honey I Love", "Moochie", "Rope Rhyme", and "Way Down In The Music".

The group's a small one – with Wynton Kelly, Kenny Burrell, and Paul Chambers – and Heath's right out front, blowing up a storm, in a confident solo-happy style that sounds more like Sonny Rollins than a lot of his other work! Titles include "Cloak and Dagger", "Vanity", "Project S", and "I Should Care". CD

Hard swinging orchestral session that's basically an Oliver Nelson project – and it's one of his best, we might add! The "Jazzhattan Suite" is a suite of tracks written as a tribute to New York. Titles of passages include "The East Side/The West Side", "125th & 7th Ave", and "Penthouse Dawn" – if that gives you any hint. Nelson's writing is impeccable, as always, and although the group is fairly large, he gets them to swing in the way that he did on his best work with folks like Jimmy Smith or Lou Donaldson. Players include Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, Ron Carter, Patti Brown, and Joe Newman (who also did a bit of the conducting). Groovy stuff, and like finding a hip jazzy soundtrack! LP, Vinyl record album

Philly Joe Jones with Johnny GriffinDameronia – Look Stop & Listen ... LP
Uptown, 1983. Very Good ... $9.99
A killer second album from Philly Joe Jones' Dameronia project – a group dedicated to playing the music of Tadd Dameron, but with a soaring swing that's very much Jones' own groove! The tunes are all classics by Tadd, presented with the kind of forward-thinking charts that Dameron first got noticed for during the bop years – played here by an excellent group of creative modernists, including Johnny Griffin on tenor, Frank Wess on alto and flute, Charles Davis on tenor and flute, Benny Powell on trombone, Walter Davis on piano, Cecil Payne on baritone, and the excellent Virgil Jones on trumpet. All players are seasoned veterans by the time of this date, but come together with all the crisp freshness of their early years on the scene – a great testament to Jones' sharp leadership of the ensemble, as you'll hear on tunes that include "Our Delight", "Focus", "Choose Now", "If You Could See Me Now", "Loop Stop & Listen", and "Theme Of No Repeat".

Quincy Jones may be best remembered for his funky soundtrack work of the 70s – but the man can also hit a deeper, more serious vein when he wants – as he does on this ambitious album-length project inspired by the landmark Roots mini-series! The music isn't a straight soundtrack from the program, but instead evokes the longer narrative over the passage of its different selections – working as its own "saga of an American family", as it moves from African roots, through years of oppression, to moments of pride and power – amidst larger orchestrations from Jones, with help from Letta Mbulu on some key vocals, and more help from Bill Summers, James Cleveland, and even Lou Gossett. Titles include "Many Rains", "Free At Last", "Jumpin De Broom", "Ole Fiddler", "Boyhood To Manhood", "Oluwa", and "Motherland". (Soundtracks, Jazz) CD

John La PortaTheme & Variations (Conceptions plus previously unreleased material) ... CD
Fantasy, Late 50s. Used ... $3.99
Pretty amazing work from one of the greatest under-rated talents of 50s modern jazz! John LaPorta was a brilliant multi-instrumentalist who's probably best known for his work with Mingus in the mid 50s Jazz Workshop years, and for his earlier sides with Woody Herman – but it's on records under his own name that LaPorta really begins to shine. This great set features 14 tracks that were recorded in the 50s, but never issued before – and 9 more that were from the album Conceptions, issued briefly in the 50s by Fantasy Records. The first 14 tracks form a long suite of jazz-based compositions, handled with a modernist chamber-type approach – and based around some really great solo work on trumpet, baritone, tenor, and bass. The feel is almost like a 50s jazz soundtrack – with lots of moody moments paired with others that break out in a stronger swinging groove. The remaining tracks are equally nice – in a similar style, and showing LaPorta as a composer who could have handled just about any ambitious jazz project of the time. Titles include "Forward Motion", "Jazz Canon", "Images", "Lucidity", "Little Fantasy", "Ferme LaPorta", "En Rapport", and "Triplets You Say". CD

Steve LacySteve Lacy At New Jazz Meeting Baden-Baden 2002 ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 2002. Used Gatefold ... $11.99
A wonderful blend of free jazz & atmospheric electronic experimentation led by soprano mainstay Steve Lacy – a truly inviting blend of open-ended sounds that manages to all come together in a very natural way! Sadly, this set captured here at the NEWJazz meeting of 2002 at Baden-Baden, Germany turned out to be one of Lacy's final projects – and it's a nice tribute to his legacy of openness and a free spirit. The project started by using a piece by ambitious composer Bernard Lang, "DW 1.2 For Piano, Flute And Saxophone" as a starting point for the improvisations of an interesting group of players – including Lacy, Peter Herbert on double bass, Wolfgang Reisinger on drums, Philip Jeck on turntables, plus Christof Kurzmann and Lang on electronics. It essentially develops a dialogue among the genres themselves – jazz, electronica and freeform sound art – as much as between the individual players! 6 extended numbers with the titles "DW 1.2 Remix 6.8" (quartet of Lacy, Lang, Herbert & Reisinger), "DW 1.3 Remix 7.4" (trio of Lacy, Lang & Jeck) "DW 1.2 Remix 10.2" (quartet of Kurzman, Lacy Herbert & Reisinger), "DW 1.2 Remix 7.7" (duo Jeck & Lacy), "DW 1.2 Remix Karlsruhe 3.3" (solo Lacy) and "DW 1.2 Remix 6.1" (quartet Lang, Lacy Herbert & Reisinger).

Koch/Columbia, 1968. Used ... $21.99
One of Handy's important mind-expanding sets from the late 60s – a classic album with his group that featured a young Michael White on violin and Mike Nock on piano. White's work on the album is especially striking – very different from many other players in jazz, using the instrument in styles that evoke traditions of ancient stringed instruments, while also exploring new possibilities to use the violin as a sonic tool. As always, Nock's dark piano work is always a treat – especially on the beautiful compositions he contributed to the set. Titles include "Dance To The Lady", "Sanpaku", "Song Of Uranus", "Three In One", and "Projections". CD
