✨✧ Johnny Griffin/Art TaylorJamfs Are Coming ... CD
Timeless (Netherlands), 1975/1977. Used ... $14.99
The Jamfs are definitely coming on this one – as Johnny Griffin opens up into some of his most badass soloing of the 70s, caught here in an open-ended European styled mode! The album really features only 2 long tracks – recorded in the Cafe Montmartre style that Dexter Gordon used most famously at the time, but which Griffin also got a chance at as well, often with even more dynamic results. The group here features Art Taylor on drums, Rein De Graaff on piano, and either Henk Haverhoek or Koos Serierse on bass – and titles include "The Jamfs Are Coming/Wee Dot" and "All The Things You Are" – each taking up one side of the record!

Art BlakeyBackgammon ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Killer work from this overlooked Art Blakey stretch of the mid 70s – a time when the drummer was getting back to basics, and re-igniting his music with help from some key younger players! This set sparkles with sharp tenor from the great David Schnitter – already a powerhouse out of the box, and driven onto new heights by Blakey! Also present is pianist Albert Dailey, whose conception helps bring in some fresh sounds to the Jazz Messengers universe – alongside flute player Ladji Camara, who also vocalizes on one cut. Yoshio Suzuki handles bass, and old line trumpeter Bill Hardman comes in to round out the group – on titles that include "Uranus", "Third World Blues", "Namfulay", and "Backgammon". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Harold CorbinSoul Brother – The Driving New Jazz Piano Of Harold Corbin ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic set – and one that really lives up to the promise of its title! Harold Corbin is a hell of a driving pianist – one who grabs you right from the very first note, with the kind of soulful swing that might have been more at home on Chess/Argo Records at the time – especially in the company of Chicago pianists like Ramsey Lewis or John Young! Corbin's trio has as much of a sharp swing as those groups – with work from Spanky DeBrest on bass and Eddie Campbell on drums – both of whom can snap in the right groove at the right point, while Harold still gets plenty of space to stretch out and make magic on the keys! Titles include "Tunga", "Soul Brother", "JAMF's", "The Girl In The Window", "Caroline", and "Soul Sister". CD

Johnny GriffinLive At Ronnie Scotts ... CD
In & Out (Germany), 2008. Used ... $7.99
One of the last recordings ever made by the legendary Johnny Griffin – a live date in honor of Griffin's 80th birthday, and one that shows the tenorist still very much at the top of his game! The group's an all-star lineup – with Roy Hargrove's trumpet and flugelhorn joining Griffin in the frontline – plus piano from David Newton and drums from Billy Cobham. Tracks are often long, and taken in that solo-focused mode you're likely to hear at Ronnie Scotts – although this date is a lot better recorded than some of the live material from the club in earlier years. Titles include "Lester Leaps In", "When We Were One", "Mentor", "The Blues Walk", "Hot Sake", and "The Jamfs Are Coming". CD

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Restless, 1983. Used ... $6.99
Magical mainstream Morricone – a sublime score for Sergio Leone's epic tale of gangland growth in the 20th century! Although penned for a wider audience, most of the best Morricone elements are still at play in this soundtrack – a great sense of space and timing, and some key use of spare, isolated instruments – including the pan flute of George Zamfir, an odd choice given the New York setting of the film, but one that comes off beautifully in the mix. Strings back up most of the tunes, but they're never too sleepy – just slightly sentimental, but in a really good way. Titles include "Childhood Memories", "Once Upon A Time In America", "Cockeye's Song", "Childhood Poverty", "Friends", "Photographic Memories", "Speakeasy", and "Poverty". CD also features some bonus tracks too! CD
