Keith JarrettRestoration Ruin ... CD
Vortex (Japan), 1968. Used ... $6.99
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 PastoriusJaco Pastorius ... LP
Epic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & few spots of residue.)

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.

✨✧ QuestRe-Dial – Live In Hamburg ... CD
Out Note, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A recent live set from the Quest pairing of Dave Liebman on reeds and Richie Beirach on piano – a pair who've been playing together for many years, and who continue to hone their groove wonderfully! Decades back, Dave and Richie figured out a way of wrapping Liebman's sax around Beirach's piano – in a snakey blend that summed up a generation's experiments, then went onto influence a generation more. Yet while so many others have tried for their sound, it still always comes off best in the hands of the originators – very much in top form on this live set. The group features Ron McClure on bass and Billy Hart on drums – and titles include "Let Freedom Ring", "Re-Dial", "Continuum", "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn", "Brazilia", and "Penduulum". CD

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