Clarke Boland Big BandEn Concert – 29 Octobre 1969 ... CD
RTE (France), 1969. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Great live material from the best years of this amazing ensemble that included some of the finest American and European players of the 60s! The band's at its best here – wailing away in a firey live setting, recorded with high quality by Europe 1 Radio in 1969. Players include Tony Coe, Johnny Griffin, Benny Bailey, Art Farmer, Sahib Shihab, and Derek Humble – plus the great rhythm team of Jimmy Woode, Francy Boland, and Kenny Clarke! Most of the tunes are classics of the band – and titles include "All Through The Night", "Now Hear My Meaning", "New Box", "Volcano", "Box 702", "Sax No End", "Sonor", "The Jamfs Are Coming", "Doing Time", and "Evanescence".

Johnny Griffin & Big Band LausanneBig Band Lausanne – A Monk's Dream ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1990. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Tenor legend Johnny Griffin steps in as one of the key soloists here – working within the larger Big Band Lausanne, at a level that takes us back to his classic 60s European performances in the Clark Boland Big Band! This group isn't as groove-heavy as that one, but still has an equally nice sound – one that's heavy on tonal colors, directed by reedman Christian Gavillet – who plays both alto and baritone on the record, and solos a bit himself. Other soloists include Vincent Lachat on trombone, Thierry Lang on piano, William Holden on trumpet, Yvan Ischer on alto, and Antoine Ogay on bass – all great musicians who really step out nicely from the bigger ensemble. Griffin has solos on three of the album's eight tracks, and appears to be part of the larger lineup throughout – and titles include "Fifty Six", "The Jamfs Are Coming", "Rock Skippin At The Blue Note", "Isfahan", and "A Monk's Dream".

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Mercury, 1983. Used ... $12.99
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

✨✧ Art BlakeyBackgammon ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About October 25, 2016
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

✨✧ Ebo TaylorLife Stories – Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1973 to 1980 ... CD
Strut (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Great Ghana grooves from Ebo Taylor – a tremendous collection of his funkiest 70s work – and a much-needed reintroduction of his talents to the world at large! Much of the music here has strong links with more familiar Afro Funk – but the overall approach is often a bit unique, too – lots more guitar in the rhythms at times, in ways that echo the lighter lyricism of highlife, yet all without losing the commitment to bottom sounds that made 70s changes in African music so great! The package does a great job of archaeology – bringing together not just cuts recorded under Taylor's own name, but also work with other groups too – all in a set that offers plenty in the way of notes and historical details, too. 2CD set features 16 titles that include "Heaven", "Aba Yaa", "Atwer Abroba", and "Peace On Earth" by Ebo Taylor, "Tamfo Nyi Akyir" by Apagya Showband, "Ohiani Sua Efir" by Asasse Ase, "Ene Nyame Nam A Mensuor" by Pat Thomas & Ebo Taylor, "Egya Edu" by Ebo Taylor & The Pelikans, and "Love & Death" by Ebo Taylor & Uhuru Yenzu.
