✨✧ ContinuumMad About Tadd ... LP
PAJ, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those records that really takes you by surprise – a set that doesn't look like much on the front, but which opens up immediately the minute you drop it on the turntable – with a sense of soul and swing that really hold on throughout! The group's a great one – a quintet with Jimmy Heath on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Kenny Barron on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all seasoned players working together here on a set of Tadd Dameron tunes, but inflected with a nice early 80s sense of soul – almost a more relaxed Muse Records vibe that really makes the album way more than just another reading of Dameron's classics. Titles include "Lady Bird", "Squirrel", "The Scene Is Clean", "Sid's Delight", and "Nearness". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettRestoration Ruin ... CD
Vortex (Japan), 1968. Used ... $12.99
Very nice early work by Keith Jarrett – and very different than his later albums for ECM! This set is pretty loose and spiritual at times – and has Keith playing a variety of instruments, from piano, to guitar, to soprano sax, organ, and percussion – as well as singing, which he does in kind of a hip, bluesy, jazz-based style. The songs have actual lyrics, not scatting bits, and the feel here is almost folk rock inflected with jazz – which makes for a very interesting mix, and some really great songs that would appeal to those who like the left end of the folk/rock/jazz continuum of the late 60s. Includes the funky "All Right", plus "Restoration Ruin", "Have A Real Time", "Wonders", "You're Fortunate", and "Where Are You Going". CD

Jaco PastoriusModern American Music – Period – The Criteria Tapes (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Omnivore, 1974. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
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".

✨✧ Jaco Pastorius & OthersJaco – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Sony, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A sweet collection of cuts from the legendary bassist Jaco Pastorius – a player who completely revolutionized the electric bass in the 70s! Before Jaco, the instrument was often used in the background – still strong, but without as bold of a soloing presence, and maybe less of a melodic force too. Pastorius changed all that – as legions of musicians and listeners will tell you – and as this collection with mightily support – with great cuts recorded by Pastorius both as a leader, and in Weather Report – and even working with other artists too – alongside a handful of cuts by later artists who owe an undeniable debt to Jaco. Titles include "Come On Come Over", "Continuum", "Okonkole Y Trompa", "Liberty City", "Portrait Of Tracy", and "Crisis" by Jaco Pastorius; "Teen Town", "River People", and "Barbary Coast" by Weather Report; "All Almerican Alien Boy" by Ian Hunter, "The Dry Cleaner From Des Moines (live)" by Joni Mitchell, "Longing" by Mary Pastorius, "Come On Come Over" by Mass Mental, "Shine" by TechN9ne, and "Continuum" by Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
