David AmramArrangement ... LP
Warner, 1969. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A mix of moods, colors, and feelings – handled with the full range of talents of David Amram, who's one of the few composers who could pull this one off! A number of the tracks have weird instrumentation that gives them a sound that's almost "eastern", and certainly exotic – and they're mixed here with some lightly jazzy touches, and a few mellower, more tender tunes that offset the rest of the album nicely. Titles include "Other Dreams", "Definitely Blue", "Anatolia", "Old Country Soul", "Sunny Days", "Blue Tomorrow", and "Love Is Never Out Of Style". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label stereo promo. Cover has light wear, aging, and some splitting in the seams.)

✨✧ David AmramLatin Jazz Celebration ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s look at Latin jazz from David Amram – with a who's who of Latin jazz players and stellar jazz musicians of other realms – including Paquito D'Riveria, Candido, Machito & Machito Jr, Brazilian percussion guru Duduca Fonseca, David Fathead Newman, Jimmy Knepper, Pepper Adams and others others! What could have come out as clinical or academic comes through with passion and affection, partly because Amram could get such incredible players on the record, but mostly because the multi-instrumentalist ring leader is genuinely celebrating the music rather than simply replicating it. Includes "En Memoria De Chano Pozo, "New York Charanga", "Brazilian Memories", "Celebration", "Song Of The Rainforest" and more. CD

✨✧ Curtis FullerCurtis Fuller & Hampton Hawes With French Horns ... CD
Prestige, 1957. Used ... $8.99
One of Curtis Fuller's most compelling albums from the late 50s – a striking bit of experimentalist modern jazz, quite different from some of his work for Blue Note. The format features Fuller's trombone in the lead, plus alto by Sahib Shihab – and the pair are backed up by a twin French horn lineup played by Julius Watkins and David Amram. If the horns sound hokey, don't worry, because they're not. If you've heard Watkins hardbop work, you know he can make things swing whatever the format – and the added French horns work more like an extra brace of trumpets, coloring the performance with extra washes of color, and a harsh-edged rhythm on the best cuts. Hampton Hawes plays piano, Addison Farmer is on bass, and Jerry Segal rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Roc & Troll", "A-Drift", "Lyriste", "No Crooks", and "Ronnie's Tune". CD

✨✧ Lionel HamptonJazz In Paris – Lionel Hampton & His French New Sound Vol 2 ... CD
Universal (France), 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paris was always a great city for Lionel Hampton – but it seemed like in the mid 50s, it was also a place where he cut some of his best work, too! The French New Sound pair of albums are both classics in Hamp's book – records that take off from the looser, longer-form style that he'd been hitting with his Verve recordings of the early 50s – yet which also retain some of the tighter, fuller elements of his famous large ensembles. Players on the records are great – a lineup that includes travelling American jazz greats like Benny Bailey and Nat Adderley on trumpets, and a young David Amram on French Horn – plus crack Parisian players who include Sacha Distel on guitar, Rene Urtreger on piano, and Guy Pederson on bass. The tracks are simple jamming numbers – long and open-ended, in the mode of some of Hamp's very popular live work at the time, and the vibes are right out front – hard-edged, with that soulful sound that Hamp pioneered on the instrument – and the other players are given very ample room to solo. Tracks on this second volume include "All The Things You Are", "Night & Day", and "Red Ribbon". CD

Mat MathewsFour French Horns Plus Rhythm ... LP
Elektra, 1957. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A pretty cool little set – one that sounds far better than the clunky title might make you think! Julius Watkins is the lead French Horn in a quartet of brass players that includes David Amram, Tony Miranda, and Fred Klein – and if you know Watkins' style on the instrument, you know that he works a lot in the bass range, using the horn to create moody evocative patterns of sound that really work well with the album's rhythm combo: Mat Matthews accordion, Joe Puma guitar, Milt Hinton bass, and Osie Johnson drums. The lightness of the accordion and guitar are a good counterpoint to the horns – and the set's got some good original tunes with a modern bent, like "Lobo Nocho", "Moods In Motion", "Four Men On A Horn", and "Worthington Valley". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label pressing with green print and deep groove – nice and clean!)

✨✧ Hannibal Marvin PetersonChildren Of The Fire ... LP
Sunrise, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful, most sophisticated, and most fully-realized sessions from trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson – and a record that features some incredible larger backings from David Amram! The set's a haunting suite dedicated to the children of Vietnam – one that starts out in a darkly brooding mode, but which opens up with some extremely redemptive moments as the set moves on – done in a very spiritual approach to soul jazz that's strongly in the Alice Coltrane tradition! Instrumentation includes a small string group, plus added percussion – and musicians on the set include Art Webb on flute, Richard Davis on bass, Billy Hart on drums, Michael Cochran on piano, and Hannibal himself on both trumpet and koto. The lovely Alpha Johnson sings on a few of the album's tracks, and the whole thing is very warm and deep, and has a lot of variance in tempo and mood, with a strong spiritual feel similar to that of some of the more ambitious Strata East recordings from the time! Titles include "Forest Sunrise", "The Bombing", "Prayer", "Aftermath", and "Finale". LP, Vinyl record album
