ContinuumMad About Tadd ... LP
Quicksilver, 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

Ray DrummondContinuum ... CD
Arabesque Jazz, 1994. Used ... $5.99
Every album made as a leader by bassist Ray Drummond is a treasure – and this album's no exception! The set features Drummond working with a bit more electricity than usual – thanks to the presence of guitarist John Scofield – but most of the instrumentation has that soaring, soulful quality that Drummond first started bringing to albums in the 80s – a great evolution of the styles of the soul jazz underground of the 70s, taken away into a special corner of the jazz world at the time – kept alive and flowering through efforts of a handful of players like Ray! Other players include Randy Brecker on trumpet, Kenny Barron on piano, and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums – and Thomas Chapin plays flutes on a few of the album's best tracks. Titles include a stellar reading of Stanley Cowell's "Equipoise" – which gets a cool ringing treatment from the mix of guitar and flute – and other titles include "Blues In The Closet", "Sakura", "Sail Away", "A Blues From The Sketchpad", and "Gloria's Step".

✨✧ Eddie Prevost QuartetContinuum ... CD
Matchless (UK), 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best jazz recordings by this seminal member of the Brit avant combo AMM. The album features one long track, recorded live in 1983, with Prevost on drums, leading a combo that includes Larry Stabbins, from the group Working Week, on sax. Despite Working Week's pop/soul leanings, and Stabbins' other recorded history as a mellow soul soloists, his soprano and tenor work on the album is quite fierce – and he delivers some nice circular solos that work well with Prevost's rolling drum passages.

Jaco Pastorius & OthersJaco – Original Soundtrack (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Sony, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
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.

VariousHavana Jam 2 ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ Jaco PastoriusJaco Pastorius ... LP
Epic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This is the one that really nailed it for Jaco Pastorious – a brilliant showcase for all his many talents on the bass, and a key illustration of the way that he influenced an entire generation! Sure, Jaco in Weather Report was already pretty darn great – but here, on his own, he really gets to sparkle – jamming hard with heavyweights on some funky numbers, sliding out in spacey territory on mellow cuts, and even trying out a few more experimental moments that are far beyond what most other bassists might imagine for a debut of this nature. Players on the date include Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Don Alias on percussion, Lenny White on drums, Hubert Laws on flute, and Randy Brecker on trumpet – and titles include "Portrait Of Tracy", "Donna Lee", "Continuum", "Okonkole Y Trompa", "Kuru/Speak Like a Child", "Opus Pocus", and "Come On Come Over".

✨✧ Jaco PastoriusModern American Music – Period – The Criteria Tapes (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Omnivore, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

(Barcode has a cutout mark.)
