Cyril JacksonAfro Stereo (aka Afro Drums) ... LP
Counterpoint, 1958. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great little album of percussion grooves – hidden under a package that looks like it's going to be a lot more rootsy, but which ends up sounding like some of the hipper conga-heavy sessions on labels like Liberty or GNP from the late 50s. Jackson plays much of the percussion, but there's other players on the set who kick in with some other percussion instruments – and some occasional piano and flute. Tracks include "Mambo Ricci", "Conga", "Jungla", "Road March", "Shango", and "Guaguanco". (Global Grooves, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Phil MooreFantasy For Leda (Fantasy For Girl & Orchestra/Portrait Of Leda) ... CD
Verve/Cherry Red (UK), Late 50s. Used ... $1.99
One of the strangest records ever on Verve! The album's a dreamy batch of easy tunes – composed by Phil Moore, and played by a group that includes Lucky Thompson, Marshall Royal, Snooky Young, Gerald Wilson, Calvin Jackson, and Harry Klee, plus added strings. The overall feel is similar to some of the mellower "with strings" albums on Verve – with a lead soloist stepping out on each track on the set. However, the real stunner is the extended "Fantasy For Girl & Orchestra", which features the voice of Annette Warren having an internal monologue to deal with her sadness. Crazy stuff! Other tracks include "Misty Moon Blues", "Cornucopia", "Fugue For Barroom Piano", "125th Street Prophet" and "Portrait Of Leda" parts 1-3 with vocals by Leda Annest. (Jazz, Now Sound) CD
