Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride, & Brian BladeRoundAgain ... CD
Nonesuch, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
One of those rare cases where an all-star group is really worth the weight of its talent – as this quartet really sounds wonderful together, and make you know that you're in for a treat right from the very first note in the set! The best energy of the record might come from the rhythmic conception of drummer Brian Blade, and maybe a bit of the spirit of bassist Christian McBride – because pianist Brad Mehldau and tenorist Joshua Redman come off with all these really inventive, creative elements – very much structured around a sense of rhythm, although one that's nicely complex at most moments – a less-familiar sort of swing, and we mean that in the best way possible. Titles include "Father", "Floppy Diss", "Your Part To Play", ":Moe HOnk", "Right Back Round Again", and "Undertow". CD

✨✧ Christopher Parker & Kelley Hurt with Brian BladeNo Tears Suite ... CD
Mahakala, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic project dedicated to the legendary Brown V Board Of Education moment in the Civil Rights Movement – a suite of tracks recorded in Little Rock, home of the original moment of integration – with music by pianist Christopher Parker, and songs and recitations from Kelley Hurt! The jazz component of the record is strong enough to make us love it on its own – well-crafted songs that flow openly, and soulfully – with performances from Bobby Lavell on tenor, Mark Franklin on trumpet, and Chad Flower on alto – kept swinging by the drums of Brian Blade and bass of Bill Huntington. Hurt's contributions are balanced with the instrumental moments in a very nice way – and titles include "Roll Call", "To Be A Kid", "Crisis", "Jubilate", and "Overture/By The Numbers". CD

Ron MilesRainbow Sign ... CD
Blue Note, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
The Blue Note debut of cornet player Ron Miles – a musician with a great sense of phrasing, and maybe some of the strongest sense of color we've ever heard come from the instrument in recent years! The group here, though, is really a strong part of that sense of tone – as the lineup features Bill Frisell delivering some delicious elements on guitar, and Jason Moran fleshing things out on piano – while drummer Brian Blade works with his strong sense of spaciousness, often letting the silences between his drumbeats do as much as the percussion itself. Bassist Thomas Morgan wraps the whole thing together from the bottom up – and Miles delivers a strong set of original compositions for the record – including "Queen Of The South", "Like Those Who Dream", "The Rumor", "Custodian Of The New", "This Old Man", "Blinder", "A Kind Word", and "Rainbow Sign".

SF Jazz CollectiveInaugural Season Live 2004 – Inaugural Concert Tour (3CD set) ... CD
SF Jazz, 2004. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 35.00
The start of a fantastic tradition – the first-ever recording of the SF Jazz Collective, a kickoff to a series that would give us amazing records for years to come! This time around, the group work through a series of Ornette Coleman tunes, re-arranged by Gil Goldstein for the octet – which features an all-star lineup that includes Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Joshua Redman on tenor, Nicholas Payton on trumpet, Miguel Zenon on alto, Josh Roseman on trombone, Renee Rosnes on piano, Robert Hurst on bass, and Brian Blade on drums – all strong leaders on their own, but doing a remarkable job here of putting aside egos and working together as a whole! Coleman tunes include "Una Muy Bonita", "Lonely Woman", "School Work", "Happy House", and "When Will The Blues Leave" – and originals include "Of This Day's Journey", "Wages", "March Madness", and "Rise & Fall".

✨✧ DopolariansBond ... CD
Mahakala, 2021. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
You might not know the name of the group, but there's plenty of familiar names in the lineup – yet all coming together to build something new and fresh – a set with echoes of a variety of different southern landscapes, recorded and improvised in a studio in New Orleans! This isn't the usual Crescent City jazz, as the vibe here is a mix of freely improvised moments and deeper thematic passages – spread out over three long tracks that work together well as a suite, performed by William Parker on bass, Brian Blade on drums, Chad Fowler on alto, Marc Franklin on trumpet, Christopher Parker on piano, and Kelley Hurt on voice. Titles include "The Bond", "The Emergence", and "The Release". CD
