Sonny FortuneContinuum ... CD
Sound Reason, 2003. Used ... $9.99
Sonny Fortune's one of those cats who never lets us down – and even well into the 21st Century, he still sounds as soulful as he did back in the 70s! The album has Fortune opening up wonderfully on alto, soprano, and tenor sax – very much at home in the sort of modal rhythms that always suited him best, back in the day – blowing with that amazing technique we love so much – kind of a fluid groove, but with a rasp on the edge. The group features George Cables on piano, Wayne Dockery on bass, and Steve Johns on drums – and Cables and Dockery really help give the album a well-rounded depth, and match Fortune's classic vibe perfectly. There's loads of great originals by Sonny – and titles include "Wayne-ish", "Trane & Things", "Five Four Trane", "Mongo Blue", "A Space In Time", and "Sound's Silent". CD

✨✧ Hayden Childs33 1/3 – Richard & Linda Thompson's Shoot Out The Lights ... Book
Continuum, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A well-penned essay on the classic album Shoot Out The Lights – the final record from the team of Richard & Linda Thompson, and a set that documents all the strain and tension in their relationship at the time! Author Hayden Childs really gets at the deep emotions that Richard Thompson put into his lyrics – some of the bleakest he ever penned, and surprisingly poignant even when sung by Linda. Childs paints a picture of Thompson's private hell with prose that has the vividness of fiction – and he supports his concepts with some extra-cool appendices in the back – including one that compares Richard Thompson's key records with those by Neil Young! 116 pages, softcover.

Jaco PastoriusModern American Music – Period – The Criteria Tapes ... LP
Omnivore, 1974. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Some of the earliest work ever from Jaco Pastorius – rare demo recordings, issued in this format for the first time ever – filled to the brim with the kind of groundbreaking basswork that Jaco helped pioneer! Many tracks are relatively spare, and really give you a great chance to hear the special skills that Pastorius brought to his instrument – that level of soloing that was even more deft than most work on horns, and which pushed the instrument into really amazing territory. Other instrumentation includes Fender Rhodes, drums, steel drums, and some percussion from Don Alias – and titles include "Balloon Song", "Pans #1", "Kuru", "Havona/Continuum", "Time Lapse", and "Opus Pocus". LP, Vinyl record album
(Marbled red vinyl pressing, includes the insert.)

✨✧ McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Ron Carter, & Al FosteMilestone Jazz Stars In Concert ... LP
Milestone, 1978. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful combination of players – really stretching out here in a hip double-length set! The live performance features three key musicians all recording for Milestone Records in the 70s – Sonny Rollins on tenor and soprano sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Ron Carter on bass – joined by drummer Al Foster, who provides some great energy to round out the quartet! But not all the tracks here are quartet ones, either – as the set also features some duet, trio, and solo moments too – really changing things up on some extended tracks that continue to keep things interesting! Titles include the excellent "Cutting Edge" – plus "Continuum", "Alone Together", "Nubia", "NO Blues", and "Don't Stop The Carnival". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear.)

✨✧ Jaco PastoriusTwins I – Aurex Jazz Festival 1982 ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jaco Pastorius at the height of his powers – working here on a set of smoking live recordings that feature both the Word Of Mouth Sextet, and a larger big band! The core combo features Pastorius on some really incredible bass – that re-worked approach to the electric instrument in jazz that went onto inform many generations of players – matched with the core energy of Randy Brecker on trumpet, Bob Mintzer on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Erskine on drums, Don Alias on percussion, and the surprising addition of Othello Moineaux on steel drums – which makes for some very interesting moments. Toots Theielmans joins the sextet at one point – and the larger group features Jon Faddis on trumpet, Wayne Andre on trombone, and Mari Cruz on tenor and soprano sax. Titles include "Continuum", "Liberty City", and "Three Views Of A Secret" plus "Sophisticated Lady", "Invitation", and "Soul Intro/The Chicken". CD

✨✧ VariousHavana Jam 2 ... CD
Columbia/Discos 605, 1979. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A rare cross-cultural session from 1979 – one in which Columbia Records was allowed to record live performances involving a number of American jazz musicians playing alongside Cuban groups like Irakere and The Cuban Percussion Ensemble! The blend of modes here is really great – somewhat in the territory of Irakere's albums for Columbia, but a lot wider-ranging overall – sometimes sensitive and jazz-based, sometimes much more upbeat and jamming! Jazz players include Dexter Gordon, Paquito D'Rivera, Jimmy Heath, and Stan Getz on tenor sax; Arthur Blythe on alto sax, Cedar Walton on piano, Jimmy Heath on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – as well as the members of Weather Report, who turn in one especially cooking number. Irakere plays "Mil Ciento De Junedad" and "Contradanza", Weather Report play "Teentown", Cuban Percussion Ensemble play "Scherezada/Sun Sun", John McLaughlin's Trio Of Doom play "Para Oriente" and "Continuum", and assorted jazz players handle "Tin Tin Deo", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Sounds For Sore Ears", and "I Wanna Be".
