✨✧ Chet BakerPeace ... CD
Enja/Rhino, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty nice later Chet Baker album – thanks to vibes by David Friedman, who really seems to be the driving force of the set! The album was cut during the same time that Friedman himself was a leader on Enja – and it's got a very similar feel to much of Dave's work – with vibes that ring out slowly but effectively, creating a spacious backdrop for Baker's fragile, somewhat bruised solos to emerge. Bass is by Buster Williams, drums are by Joe Chambers, and 4 of the album's 6 tracks are Friedman originals – including "For Now", "Shadows", "Syzygies", and "Lament For Thelonious". CD

Fred Hopkins & Deidre Murray QuartetProphecy ... CD
About Time, 1990. Used ... $19.99
A seminal recording from this duo who were a key part of the Northeastern improv scene in the 80s – bassist Fred Hopkins and cellist Deirdre Murray, who between the two of them manage to cover a hell of a lot of space with their instruments! Both players work together with an energy on the strings that almost makes it feel as if they were handling different ranges on the same instrument – a really sympathetic, intuitive approach that already carried a lot of power on its own – but here gets a debut presentation in quartet format, with the addition of Brandon Ross on guitar and Newman Baker on drums. Baker's drums really bring a lot to the date – a key sort of "punch" that sets fire right from the start, but can also step back and really help the record pace itself too. Titles include "Song For The Lost People", "Eureka", "Prophecy", "Waterfall", and "Calypso". CD

✨✧ Gerry Mulligan QuartetOn The Road – Live In California ... CD
Giant Steps (UK), Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great assortment of rare live material from Gerry Mulligan's groundbreaking piano-less years – tracks recorded between 1952 and 1954, in groups with either Chet Baker or Jon Eardley on trumpet! Tracks include 5 from a 1952 date at the Blackhawk in San Francisco, 15 more from The Haig in LA in 1953 (including a few with Lee Konitz on alto) – plus even more obscure dates at Stockton High School in 1954 and Hoover High School in San Diego from the same year! Chico Hamilton plays drums on all the high school dates, and the sound is surprisingly good – with the right sort of crispness to make Gerry's unique approach come through perfectly! 2CD set features a whopping 35 tracks that include "Line For Lyons", "Carioca", "Utter Chaos", "Bark For Barksdale", "Lover Man", "Bernie's Tune", "Funhouse", "Ida's Side", "Five Brothers", "Get Happy", "Poinciana", "Blues For Tiny", "Limelite", "Nights At The Turntable", "Ontet", "Soft Shoe", and "Piano Blues".
