✨✧ Don Cherry & Ed BlackwellEl Corazon ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great album from these two giants of the Ornette Coleman generation – and one that also shows just how much space both musicians had traversed since the 60s! Don Cherry plays his familiar pocket trumpet in the lead, but also brings in piano, melodica, organ, and doussn gouni – creating this beautiful sonic palette next to the very creative work on drums and percussion from Blackwell! Both musicians improvise in rhythm-driven modes that seem to have their roots in Ornette's original quartet with the pair – but there's also open ears to a globe's worth of instrumental elements, and decades of new sound shapes as well. Fantastic throughout – with titles that include "Mutron/Bemsha Swing/Solidarity/Arabian Nightingale", Roland Alphonso", "Street Dancing", "Makondi", and "Near In". CD

✨✧ Don Cherry/Dewey Redman/Ed Blackwell/Charlie HadenOld & New Dreams (Black Saint) (CDr pressing) ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The first album from this key group of Ornette Coleman alums – an all-star combo that features work from Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums! The sound here is quite Ornette-inspired at times – with a definite late 70s harmelodic groove – but given the organic, acoustic nature of the lineup, the sound is almost more faithful to Coleman's vision than Ornette's records of the time. Haden and Blackwell are great together, as always – driving the tunes with a rhythmic force that Cherry and Redman can't help but carry through. Titles include "Handwoven", "Dewey's Tune", "Chairman Mao", "Next To The Quiet Stream", "Augmented", and "Old & New Dreams". CD

✨✧ Ed BlackwellWhat It Be Like? ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1992. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the last recordings made by Ed Blackwell before his early passing in 1992 – an Oakland live date recorded with an excellent lineup that includes Graham Haynes on cornet, Carlos Ward on alto and flute, Mark Helias on bass, and a bit of guest trumpet from Don Cherry! The style here is earthy and organic – never overly modern, and building in a way that echoes Blackwell's angular roots, but transforms that sound into more spiritually exploratory lines. Ward's work is especially great, and the absence of a piano means that the interplay between cornet and sax is the main driving force of most tunes. Titles include "Nebula", "Grandma's Shoes", "Pentahouse", "First Love", and the extended "Lito" suite in 3 parts. CD

✨✧ CTI All StarsCTI Summer Jazz At The Hollywood Bowl Vol 1-3 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1972. Used 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
Man, it's like a talent bomb exploded! This set's stuffed with work by some of the greatest jazz funk players of the early 70s – Johnny Hammond, Bob James, Deodato, George Benson, Joe Farrell, Stanley Turrentine, Freddie Hubbard, Grover Washington Jr, Hubert Laws, and others – all playing together at a massive live concert recorded in Hollywood in 1972! And although you might worry that the collection of so many great talents on one stage might just create confusion – don't! The quality of the work is excellent – almost better than the best of the CTI studio sides, with a lean, clean sound that's really really tight – never overblown, just sweet electric funk with loads of great space for solo work. This 2CD set brings together all 3 volumes of the original album – for a total of 13 long long tracks that include "Blues Force", "Rock Steady", "Grits Bowl", "California Dreaming", "Inner City Blues/What's Going On", "People Make The World Go Round", "Cherry Red", and "Funkfathers".

✨✧ DKV TrioLive In Wels & Chicago 1998 ... CD
Okka Disk, 1999. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Back in the 90s, the DKV trio were one of the strongest forces in the Chicago improvising scene – a great group that featured Ken Vandermark on reeds, Kent Kessler on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – working together with a really boundless sense of energy! This set has the group making a great appearance at the Wels Music Festival in 1998 – stepping out in a way that's a bit different than some of their previous recordings. At the festival, the trio played their incredibly haunting version of Don Cherry's "Complete Communion", drawn out into an extended suite, with the addition of the group's "Memory Sketch", in homage to Cherry. That set is paired here with some material captured on the group's home turf in Chicago – featuring 3 long improvised tracks recorded at Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge. The Chicago material comprises a second disc in this 2CD set, and it includes the titles "Blues For Tomorrow", "Open Door", and "Burning Sky". CD

✨✧ Charlie HadenBallad Of The Fallen ... CD
ECM, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest records that Charlie Haden ever did, and a record that stands as sort of a bookend to his Liberation Music album on Impulse. As with that record, he's got a large group on here, and also like that one, he's playing a batch of tracks that have a definite political bent. Players include Don Cherry, Carla Bley, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian, Jim Pepper, and Michael Mantler; and tracks include "Ballad Of The Fallen", "Too Late", "La Pasionaria", and "The People United Will Never Be Defeated". The sound's a little bit less harsh than his Impulse recording, but it's no less impassioned, and the record's a very emotional batch of music. CD

✨✧ Charlie HadenGolden Number ... CD
Horizon/A&M, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A spare set of duets that follows closely in spirit to Charlie Haden's Closeness album for A&M – and like that record, a set of well-chosen reunion duets with key figures from his past! The album features 4 long tracks – each based around a different performer set next to Haden's acoustic bass – recorded in a loose style that's almost a bit more spontaneous than the Closeness record. Don Cherry plays trumpet and flutes on "Out Of Focus", Archie Shepp plays tenor on "Shepp's Way", Hampton Hawes plays piano on "Turnaround", and Ornette Coleman plays trumpet on the beautiful title track "Golden Number".

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithHeart's Reflection ... CD
Cuneiform, 2011. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprising electric project from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – a set billed to a group named Organic, but which also has sounds that take us back to the best electric/acoustic avant moments of the 80s! The set's heavy on world jazz influences, but also really uses its electric elements strongly, too – in ways that almost recall some of the best Bill Laswell productions of years back – but with a freer, more open sound that's clearly guided strongly by Smith. In addition to both electric and acoustic versions of the trumpet played by Smith, and guitars from Michael Gregory, the set also features a fair bit of other guitars and electric bass, plus tenor from Casey Butler and alto from Casey Anderson, and even a bit of laptop as well. The first cut's a tribute to Don Cherry – and like the best of Cherry's experiments of this nature, Smith really keeps the best organic spirit in mind – proof that the name of the group is well chosen! Titles include "Hearts Reflections – Splendors Of Light & Purification" and "Don Cherry's Electric Sonic Garden". CD

James Taylor QuartetTaste Of Cherry ... CD
Real Self (UK), 2006. Used ... $14.99
One of the best new records we've heard from the James Taylor Quartet in years – a soaringly soulful set that recalls some of Taylor's sweetest soul moments from the early 90s! The sound here is much warmer and tighter than some of James' recent deep funk outings – a groove that's similar to his sublime records with Noel McCoy, but served up here in a groove that's more instrumental overall. Taylor plays his usual Hammond, plus plenty of Fender Rhodes, moog, and a bit of vibes – and Snowboy's in the backing group on production, which is joined on a few numbers by vocalist Yvonne Yanney. The whole sound here is right on the money – tight, but never slick – that perfect classic approach to jazz funk that's always made the JTQ one of the best groups around when they manage to do things right – and this time around, they've done it plenty right! Titles include "Joe's Diversions", "Taste Of Cherry", "Your Kind Of Loving", "Dreaming Of You", "The In-Between", "Dr Grits", and "It's All Over". CD

✨✧ VariousR&B Singles Collection Vol 4 – Outta Sight Red Hot Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The fourth smoking volume in this wonderful series – filled with excellent pre-soul grooves all the way through! The Outta Sight label is one that we normally know for Northern Soul reissues, but in recent years they've also been handling a lot of R&B – but all with an ear towards the sounds that also appeal to fans of later soul too – which makes for a very fresh approach to material from the 50s and early 60s – and often discovery of tracks that haven't gotten any notice for years! The package collects material from their 7" single reissue series – the a and b-sides of 15 different 45s – with titles that include "Image (part 1)" by Hank Levine, "I Want To Know" by Gay Poppers, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Catch That Teardrop" by The 5 Royales, "Strange Exotic Melody" by Ruth Christie, "Do You Think That's Right" by Judy Clay, "If You Wanna" by Baby Jean, "Have Your Way" by Lightnin Slim, "Cherry Wine" by Little Esther, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "I'm Cuttin Out" by Ivory Joe Hunter, "Wow" by David Michael, and "What A Mess" by Bobby Adams.
