Archie Shepp & Horace ParlanSwing Low ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1991. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
A sublime set from this legendary pair – saxophonist Archie Shepp and pianist Horace Parlan – a duo who already made some great records before this one, but who really knock it out of the park in a relaxed, open live set that's dripping with soul! Most of the tunes here are older spiritual numbers and standards – but they're completely reworked by Shepp and Parlan – with Horace carving out these thoughtful, meaningful lines on piano – while Shepp blows tremendously on tenor, with this raspy edge that holds us breathless – and also plays a bit of alto too. Most tracks are nice and long – and seem to further extend previous Shepp/Parlan moments in a great way – and titles include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Make Me A Pallet On The Floor", "Go Down Moses", "Dedication To Bessie Smith's Blues", "I Didn't Know About You", and "See See Rider" – plus a great version of Parlan's "Billie's Bossa".

✨✧ Jimmy SmithBack At The Chicken Shack ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A partner album of sorts to Jimmy Smith's classic Midnight Special album – recorded during the same sessions as that one, and also featuring Stanley Turrentine on tenor and Kenny Burrell on guitar! The sound here is almost even more open and stretched out – with only 4 long tracks on the album, 2 on each side – all offering up plenty of room for Jimmy to hit the Hammond with that keenly imaginative approach to a solo he was showing at this time – a style that proved that the instrument could do a lot more than just make weird noises or pump up the rhythm. Turrentine's tenor more than matches Jimmy's solos for imagination – and titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", "Messy Bessie", "Minor Chant", and "Back At The Chicken Shack". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono New York pressing, with Van Gelder stamp and ear. Cover has light stains and some pen on back.)

✨✧ VariousRoot Hog Or Die Vol 4 – This Old World Is In A Tangle ... LP
Mississippi, 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning tribute to the great Alan Lomax – the legendary musicologist, historian, and recording engineer who captured so many wonderful American sounds in the 20th Century! Lomax's work has been crucial to both the Library Of Congress and Smithsonian/Folkways Records – yet there's also a fair bit that has never seen the light of day before – amazing recordings that make up a surprisingly large part of this box set – which compiles work in many different styles recorded by Alan in the field – blues, folk, gospel, and global modes, plus compelling regional genres – all presented here in a special series! Titles on this fourth volume include "So Soon I'll Be At Home" by Sid Hemphill, "Diamond Joe" by Bessie Jones, "Wi My Rovin Eye" by Jeannie Robertson, "When I Can Read My Titles Clear" by Vera Ward Hall, "Fare You Well My Little Annie Darling" by Dawson Henson, "Join This Food Campaign" by Herth Colaire, and "Jerusalem Cuckoo" by Alice Gibbs.
