Wilton FelderWe All Have A Star/Inherit The Wind ... CD
ABC/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... $12.99
A pair of albums from saxophonist Wilton Felder – back to back on a single CD! We All Have A Star offers up solo sounds from Crusaders reedman Wilton Felder – a really great set that's very much in the best vibe of his larger group at the time – yet one that also offers up a stronger focus on Wilton's sublime solo work on tenor! The album's got plenty of Crusaders help on board – given that Stix Hooper and Joe Sample produced the set along with Wilton – and the vibe's a wonderful blend of electric backings, with especially great keyboard lines, and Felder's well-phrased saxophone lines over the top! A few cuts feature vocals – sung by Angela Bryant or Debbie Demoia Ross – and titles include "We All Have A Star", "I Know Who I Am", "The Cycles Of Time", "Why Believe", "Ride On", and "You & Me & Ecstasy". Inherit The Wind is one of the best Crusaders-related solo projects – a soulful bit of fusion from saxophonist Wilton Felder, co-produced with his fellow Crusaders! The album's got the best sunny finish of the group's late 70s albums – traces of Latin, funk, and soul bubbling through a warm jazzy mix – staying soulful all the way through, and coming up with a sound that's smooth, but never sleepy. The blueprint for a million other records – none of which ever sounded this good! Titles include "Insight", "LA Light", "Until The Morning Comes", "Someday We'll All Be Free", and "Inherit The Wind".

Oliver JonesNorthern Summit ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1990. New Copy ... $16.99
Pianist Oliver Jones takes a page here from the book of Canadian countryman Oscar Peterson – and works here in a drum-less trio, with beautifully well-rounded support from Red Mitchell on bass and Herb Ellis on guitar! Jones is definitely his own sort of stylist on the keys, but the setting evokes some of the great modes that Ellis used when working with Peterson back in the day – although shaped by that growing sense of color that Herb picked up on his later Concord Records years, which really does a lot to illuminate the record next to the more pointed notes of Jones on the piano. Titles include "Abunchafunk", "Katatura", "Lester Leaps In", "What A Beautiful Sight", and "Jordio". CD
