✨✧ George BraithExtension (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.99 On July 15, 2022
A masterpiece from George Braith – one of the most unique sax players of the 60s! The album's a Blue Note classic in the Larry Young vein – with lots of free spiralling modal lines, and heavenly solos on organ, guitar, and reeds – the former of which are played by Billy Gardner and Grant Green. Braith's playing is incredible – slightly exotic, but also quite soulful – in a vein that recalls Yusef Lateef and Roland Kirk, but which also has a strong voice of its own. Braith plays tenor, soprano, and alto sax on the set – and the album is filled with groovy modal tracks like "Nut City", "Sweetville", and "Extension". Very very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Von FreemanDoin' It Right Now ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1972. Used ... $19.99
A classic "discovery" of tenor saxophonist Von Freeman – one that was already relatively late in his career, but a key appearance on Atlantic under the auspices of Roland Kirk! The setting here is as loose and laidback as Von needs to really do his thing – backing by a trio that features fellow Chicagoan John Young on piano, plus Sam Jones on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums – all hanging back nicely to let Freeman dominate the set on tenor. The album's noteworthy for its inclusion of a few original tunes by Von – "White Sand", "Portrait Of John Young", "Doin It Right Now", "Brother George", and "Catnap" – all of which mark a nice contrast from some of the more traditional standards that show up on other Freeman albums of the 70s.

Tyrone WashingtonRoots ... CD
Perception/Octave (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $19.99 About May 25, 2022
A wonderful bit of spiritual soul jazz! This sweet little record was recorded out of the same energy that produced Larry Young's Lawrence of Newark LP for Perception Records, and it's a strange session by Tyrone Washington – a young player from the Newark scene who'd previously cut a straighter album for Blue Note, but who was working here in kind of a messed-up grab bag of styles that fit well with the stoned-out approach of the Perception label. Hubert Eaves plays piano, Stafford James plays bass, Clifford Barconadhi is on drums, and the album's a mix of funk, modal jazz grooving, and a bit of outside activity. In a way, the album's earnestness reminds us of some of Roland Kirk's work from the same time – except that Tyrone's backing group is incredible, with a tight rhythmic sound that gets funky at just the right moments. Titles include "War Is Not For Men", "1980", "Submission", and "Spiritual Light Of The Universe". CD
