Joe AlbanyEvening With Joe Albany ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1973. Used ... $9.99
A lost treasure from the great Joe Albany – a well-recorded solo performance from the 70s, and one that really gets at the increasing complexity of Albany's music in his later years! Joe's maybe best-remembered for his contributions to bop, but he's also a player with a sound that really bridges generations of jazz – one that's able to encompass older modes of expression, but always give them some sharper modern edges – in ways that are sometimes subtle, but always completely sublime! This set has Joe working with amazing dexterity over a host of standards – some long, some short, a few in medleys – with this insane command of the keyboard that keeps on pulling out notes that are surprising, yet surprisingly right in the progression that Albany creates – represented here in a setting that gives the legend the same kind of intimate, solo focus that you might have heard on the best Art Tatum recordings. Titles include "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "If You Could See Me Now", "All The Things You Are", "As Time Goes By", "More Than You Know", and "Who Can I Turn To". CD

Roy AyersYou Might Be Surprised (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1985. Used ... $12.99
Roy Ayers in a tight mid 80s funk mode – commanding a modern vibe really well, especially with his vibes so prominent in the sound! Although the sound's a step or two more modern than the Polydor years, Roy still sounds great – and he grooves nicely on this batch of tracks that mix his older jazz funk style with an 80s groove sound that has slight touches of electro. This mix of modes is really unique for the time, with Roy embracing the new school without completely letting go of his trailblazing personal approach. Jean Carn sings lead vocals on the cut "Can I See You", and the album also includes the nice stepper "Programmed For Love", plus "Virgo", "Night Flyte", and "For You", a smooth mellow cut that's got great vocals by Roy! This 2012 FTG edition features the rare single versions as bonus tracks – 6 in all, including "Programmed For Love (12" Extended Version)", "Hot (12" Version)", "Hot (Dub Mix)", "Slip N' Slide (7" Version) and more.

Kenny BarronKenny Barron At The Piano (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu/Elemental, 1981. Used ... $9.99
One of the best solo albums ever recorded by the great Kenny Barron – a set with so much life, so much cover, you really don't need any other instruments at all! Kenny's at a key point in his career here – really stretching out as an individual talent, and getting plenty of room to work on this beautifully-recorded grand piano – whose tones ring out with this soulful, majestic quality that seems to only amplify the genius that Barron brings to the keys! And while there's certainly been other Kenny Barron solo albums over the years – including some great dates from overseas – there's a power and confidence here that's somewhat missing from the rest – this righteous, commanding style that's almost like Stanley Cowell in a similar setting, but more lyrical too. Titles include "Bud-Like", "Calypso", "Body & Soul", "Enchanted Flower", "Star Crossed Lovers", and "Misterioso". CD features the bonus track "Wazuri Blues". CD

Ray BryantRay Bryant Trio (Prestige) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1957. Used ... $14.99
A great early trio session from Ray Bryant – the kind of record that instantly shows why he caught such fire on the scene! There's a simplicity here that's almost invisible – a command of the keys that's strong, but not nearly as show-offy as some of Bryant's contemporaries. And given that Ray always managed to kick up a groove on the left side of the keyboard with his firm approach to rhythm, he's definitely a group player in the trio on the set – an excellent combo that features the wonderful Ike Issacs on bass and Specs Wright on drums. Titles include "Splittin", "Golden Earrings", "Sonar", "Changes", and "Daahoud". CD

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsHawk Relaxes ... CD
Prestige/Moodsville/OJC, 1961. Used ... $6.99
The Hawk Relaxes, but never lets himself go – and a set like this is a great illustration of the gentle genius that made so many later Coleman Hawkins records so great! The relaxed setting for this record is a perfect setting for Hawkins to open up and stretch out – working his tenor with a sound that has surprising modern edges, and unusual twists and turns, yet still all the careful economy of his better-known classic sides. There's a command of the instrument here that few other aging players ever seemed to muster – always a sense of new discovery and invention that marks the work strongly, even at a time when Hawkins could have been sitting on his laurels, playing the same old tune! Titles are all standards, but don't let that fool you – because there's plenty of magic in Coleman's versions of "Moonglow", "Just A Gigolo", "Speak Low", "When Day Is Done", and "I'll Never Be The Same". Oh, and we almost forgot – just because we're so focused on Hawkins – the other players include Ronnell Bright on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Andrew Cyrille on drums – making a surprising early appearance here!

Phineas NewbornPlays Harold Arlen's Music From Jamaica/Fabulous Phineas ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1957. Used ... $9.99
A pair of early albums from this Memphis piano legend! First up is the album Jamaica – one of the greatest albums from the early years of Phineas Newborn – a large group session from the pianist, and one with a very different feel than some of his trio sides! The music is all from the Harold Arlen musical Jamaica – but the groove is pure Newborn all the way, and a lot more soulful than anything you'd hear on Broadway! Phineas' piano somehow seems even more fluid than usual – and it's set up in a great group with really wonderful guitar work from Les Spann, who's clearly the second biggest voice on the date – plus Jerome Richardson on tenor and flute, Sahib Shihab on alto and baritone, Ernie Royal on trumpet, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone. Willie Rodriguez and Francisco Pozo add in some great extra percussion to the tunes – further helping the groove – and titles include "For Every Fish", "Take It Slow Joe", "Pity De Sunset", "Napoleon", "Little Biscuit", "Coconut Sweet", and "Push De Button". On Fabulous Phineas, Phineas Newborn is certainly fabulous – thanks in part to some great guitar work from his brother Calvin! The session's got a little extra "kick" than some of Phineas' other records from the time – a slightly rougher edge that comes from Calvin's raspy guitar work on most of the tunes – played in a way that steps along with the keys of the piano on the leads, but slides out on its own solos as the tunes roll on. Phineas himself is still boldly in charge of the record – playing in that grandly commanding way of his from the 50s – a style that often makes equal use of space as it does his striking the keys – very poised, but also still quite soulful as well. 2 tracks are solo numbers, and titles include "What's New", "Pamela", "45 Degree Angle", "Back Home", and "I'll Remember April".

Sonny StittTune-Up/Constellation – Endgame Brilliance ... CD
Cobblestone/32 Jazz, 1972. Used ... $11.99
Early 70s magic from Sonny Stitt – two albums recorded in 1972 for the Cobblestone label! First up is Tune Up – a great one from Stitt's post-Prestige years, and a real back-to-basics effort that recalls the genius of his work on Roost! The format is straight and simple – Stitt's tenor and alto fronting a quartet that includes Barry Harris, Sam Jones, and Alan Dawson – all playing in a way that puts Sonny in command on all tracks, blowing with an amazing tone that makes us want to throw away all his funk, organ, and electric outings, and just concentrate on these straight acoustic sides. Stitt has a way of blowing the reed like he's got his whole mouth moving into the sax – an earthy, human, and personal feel that first came out strongly in his work during the late 50s, but which has grown even more by this point – even if you couldn't hear the development on other sets. And given our love of funk and electric sides, we're honestly surprised we find ourselves championing a record like this from the early 70s – but it's a great one, and not to be missed if you remotely dig Stitt! Titles include "Tune Up", "Idaho", "Just Friends", "Groovin High", and "Blues For Prez & Bird". Constellation is all bop and all soul all the way through, and recorded with a tight quartet that features Barry Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums! The style's a bit like Sonny's work of the late 50s, but there's also a fluidity to the rhythm section that makes it a bit different too – a sound that's warm, open, and soulful – creating a space into which Stitt settles nicely and blows like mad. There's no gimmicks at all, just solid classic jazz skills – and titles include "Casbah", "Constellation", "By Accident", "Webb City", and "Topsy". CD

Hector ZazouReivax Au Bongo – Made To Measure Vol 2 ... CD
Made To Measure (Austria), 1986. Used ... $9.99
An incredibly beautiful record – one scored to accompany a "photo novel" included in the set! The work brings together vocals from Congolese singers and musicians Ray Lema, Kanda Bongo Man, and Bony Bikaye – plus a range of light strings, percussion, and electronics – all artfully composed with a haunting, ethereal quality that tells the story of the novel in sound. There's a fragile balance here that's really incredible – too far to one side, and the work would be horribly reductive; too far to the other, and it would be painfully arty. And yet there's also a sense of art-based optimism here that's really great – almost recalling the earnestness of early 20th century European movements, but done with a much more post-modern sensibility. Titles include "L'Embarcdere", "Le Bain Royal", "Chez Le Commandeur", "Le Passage De La Frontiere", "Chanson Bongolaise", "L'Apparition", and "Un Heros". CD

✨✧ Jackie McLeanMcLean's Scene (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
New Jazz (Japan), Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
McLean's Scene is a strong one – as the young Jackie is really coming into his own at the time of the session, blowing and growing with a soulful command of the alto sax that would emerge even more strongly in the 60s. The album's got McLean working in a slightly open-ended way – almost a blowing session, but a bit more controlled – yet in that relaxed style that always seemed to get the most sharpness out of Jackie's horn at the time. Other players include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Mal Waldron or Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers or Arthur Phipps on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Titles include "Gone With the Wind", "Our Love Is Here to Stay", "Old Folks", "Outburst", "Mean To Me", and "McLean's Scene". CD

✨✧ Art PepperNeon Art Vol 1 ... CD
Omnivore/Widows Taste, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool late live set from Art Pepper – working in a killer quartet setting! Neon Art Vol 1 features two side-long pieces, recorded in January of '81, at Parnell's in Seattle – part of an excellent archive series of Art Pepper's work, done by his widow. Side one features a really great, elongated take on Pepper's "Red Car" – which was a stand out number on The Trip LP a few years earlier. This particular trip is stretched out to nearly 17 minutes long – with bassist David Williams and drummer Carl Burnett laying down a rhythm that's actually got a bit of funk in it – but pianist Milcho Leviev nearly steals the show! Pepper waits in the wings early on, but steps out brilliantly on alto as the performance builds up steam – and you can hear the audience really getting into it. Incredible! The other side features an 18 minute take on Pepper's "Blues For Blanche" – and Art commands this one from the start – by improvising pretty nicely on his sax, without straying too far out – and the players get some spotlight action, too.

A strong quartet set from Cedar Walton – with Bob Berg blowing on tenor, recalling the feel of the older Walton/Hank Mobley sides in the same manner, and featuring a lithe rhythm section of Sam Jones and Billy Higgins. The set was recorded live at Club Montmartre in 1977 – and Walton is, as ever, fully in command of his soulful talents. Titles include "Fantasy In D", "Bolivia", and "Angel In The Night". CD

✨✧ Joe WilliamsSwingin Night At Birdland ... CD
Roulette, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful live set from Joe Williams – recorded at Birdland, as you'd guess from the title – and done with a raw depth that surpasses much of his studio work from the time! Joe's really moving past cliche here – using his voice with a power that hadn't been heard since his sides for Savoy – and really commanding the audience with a charisma that shines through with incredible clarity. Harry Edison's leading a small group that also includes Jimmy Forrest on tenor and Ike Issacs on bass – and titles include "Teach Me Tonight", "Come Back Baby", "September In The Rain", "Roll Em Pete", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". CD features 4 previously unissued numbers too! CD

✨✧ Milford Graves & Don PullenComplete Yale Concert 1966 (In Concert At Yale University/Nommo) ... CD
SRP/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Groundbreaking early work from drummer Milford Graves and pianist Don Pullen – a set of long, free improvisations that were originally issued on Graves' Self-Reliance Productions label – combined here for the first time ever! The music is even more striking than sounds from the time on the ESP label – and also really predates some of the freer work of this type from the European scene – as Graves is a monster on the drum kit and a range of percussion, reaching out with this scope of sound and deft command of his hands that's simply breathtaking – matched by energy from Pullen that really surpasses some of his later work too – almost Cecil Taylor-like vibes at points, mixed with other elements that are in a more familiar mode for the pianist. The set features five long improvisations, each a numbered variant with the title "PG". Great gatefold package – with images of some of the hand-painted covers that Graves used for his releases! CD
