✨✧ Joe McPheeTrinity ... CD
Unheard Music Series/Atavistic, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Joe McPhee's strongest early albums – and a real breakthrough from his sound on Nation Time (also issued as part of the Unheard Music Series.) The group here is a trio – with Mike Kull on electric and acoustic piano, and Harold E Smith on percussion – and the lack of a bass player gives the group an incredible sense of freedom, letting them wail away on long tracks with a strong bent for musical and spatial exploration. The two most marked examples of this are "Astral Spirits" and "Delta" – both searching numbers that start with an electric piano/tenor sound that you might have heard on a Joe Henderson album on Milestone from the same time, but which take that sound to unheard of limits, pushing the keys and the sax to full capacity. The album also includes the longer track "Ionization", which is a fiercely jamming number with a slightly straighter bent. CD

✨✧ Alexander Von Schlippenbach TrioPakistani Pomade ... CD
Unheard Music Series/FMP, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal recording from the legendary FMP label – brilliant early work by the Schlippenbach Trio, an important group in the European avant scene of the 70s! The trio features Evan Parker on soprano and tenor sax, Paul Lovens on drums, and Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano – working together in the kind of magical free spirit that characterized the European scene at the time. The work gets quite out, and is almost disordered, but there's always something at the core that holds the players together – an overarching spirit of creative expression that makes the album one of Schlippenbach's greatest records. Titles include "Butaki Sisters", "A Little Yellow", "Ein Husten Ful Karl Valentin", "Moonbeef", and "Pakistani Pomade". CD
