Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLive 1972 (aka Live At Mandel Hall) ... CD
Delmark, 1972. Used ... $6.99
One of the best post-Paris live dates by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – recorded right on their southside home turf in Chicago, as something of a homecoming after their years abroad! The performance is really one continuous piece, divided up into chapters – and it starts off with an intensity that's bolder than much of the group's previous recordings – an almost-free sort of sound that's quite raw, and which must have been a great way to announce their presence back on the Chicago scene. As the piece moves on, it slows a bit in pace, and opens up more in mood – but always has an edge that's quite distinct – almost free of some of the wit that marked the Ensemble's work from a few years before. The core lineup features Lester Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn, Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman on saxes, Malachi Favors on bass, and Don Moye on drums and percussion – but as always, all players get their hands on plenty of other instruments during the performance – an array of horns, gongs, bells, whistles, bike horns, and more – all used to great effect! Sections of the work are titled "Duffvipels", "Checkmate", "Dautalty", and "Mata Kimasu". CD

Lurrie BellBlues In My Soul ... CD
Delmark, 2013. Used ... $7.99
Lurrie Bell just seems to get better and better with age – taking on a depth of tone in his guitar work that definitely marks his long years on the Chicago scene! This set's got Lurrie in mostly a small combo mode – singing and playing guitar with just a bit of organ, bass, and drums – plus additional horns and harmonica on a few other cuts. Titles include "Blues In My Soul", "My Little Machine", "South Side To Riverside", "If It's Too Late", and "Blues Never Die". CD

Lurrie BellCan't Shake This Feeling ... CD
Delmark, 2016. Used ... $7.99
Plenty of feeling here from Lurrie Bell – a Chicago bluesman who still holds onto the deepest sound of the scene from years back – especially the modes of that late 60s moment where the Chicago electric sound was really finding a wider voice! Bell's a bit too tight to be an early Chess player, but he's also got a rawer edge than some of his other contemporaries on different labels – a nice sense of grit in both his vocals and guitar work, given string support by a sweet small combo in a similar vibe. Titles include "Sinner's Prayer", "Blues Is Trying To Keep Up With Me", "Drifting", "One Eyed Woman", "Do You Hear", "Hidden Charms", and "Faith & Music". CD

Ari BrownGroove Awakening ... CD
Delmark, 2013. Used ... $6.99
The great Ari Brown, in wonderful form – hardly a player who needs any awakening at all, since he's been working strongly on the Chicago scene since the 70s! Ari's done famous work with his group The Awakening, Ramsey Lewis, and other bigger names – but we've really grown to love his music on his own – consistently fresh and inventive, yet rooted in a strong Chicago tradition of soulful soloing as well! The record's got Brown in the company of some very familiar players – Avreeayl Ra on drums, Yosef Ben Israel on bass, and the younger Kirk Brown on piano – with extra percussion from Dr Cuz, which really creates a sweet groove for Ari's lead work on tenor and soprano sax. Tunes are mostly originals – great numbers penned by Brown – and titles include "One For Ken", "Enka", "Veda's Dance", "Wayne's Trane", "Give Thanks", and "Groove Awakening". CD

Eddie CampbellSpider Eating Preacher ... CD
Delmark, 2012. Used ... $5.99
A cooker from this Chicago living legend – and proof that the passage of time hasn't dimmed the talents of Eddie Campbell at all! Eddie's firmly in the lead on vocals and guitar – plus a bit of harmonica, too – and the setting is mostly stripped-down, with the kind of no-nonsense contemporary blues production you'd expect from Delmark – almost a back-to-basics mode that really fits the music. Lurrie Bell guests on a few tracks – and titles include "Brownout", "I Do", "Call My Mama", "I Don't Understand This Woman", "Boomerang", "Starlight", "All My Life", "Skin Tight", and "My Friend".

Eddie CampbellTear This World Up ... CD
Delmark, 2009. Used ... $6.99
Great old school Chicago blues from Eddie Campbell – the kind of stripped-down set we might have heard from Delmark back in the 70s! Eddie's on both acoustic and electric guitar, mostly the latter – and sings with an easygoing, almost conversational style on most numbers – easing into the tunes as he might on the stage of a small club – with tight combo backing that includes piano, organ, harmonica, and a bit of horns on a few tracks. Titles include "Makin Popcorn", "Love Me With A Feeling", "Tie Your Time Up", "Voodoo", "All Nite", "Bluesman", "Care", "My Last Affair", and "I'm Just Your Fool". CD

Corey DennisonCorey Dennison Band ... CD
Delmark, 2016. Used ... $3.99
Corey Dennison's making one of his trademark growls of expression on the cover – a gritty grimace that seems to come from down deep inside and really inflect his music with a surprising amount of soul! Dennison's a midwestern bluesman, but has roots in the south – which really come through on this record – both in the swamp-styled way he inflects his guitar, and the soulful currents he brings to his vocals – an approach that's often as unabashed as blue-eyed southerners from the past, like Tony Joe White or Wayne Cochran. Corey's more blues-based overall, but still has that wide range we love in both of those artists – and titles are all originals, and include "She's No Good", "Room To Breathe", "The Deacon", "Getcha Pull", "Tugboat Blues", and "Good Enuff".

Luther Johnson with Muddy Waters Blues BandCome On Home ... LP
Douglas, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Wild guitar from Luther Johnson – an obscure earlier session recorded with a nicely gritty feel, and a fair bit of funk in the rhythms too! The group's billed as the Muddy Waters Blues Band – and Muddy appears to be on the record, although the notes are a bit lean – and the album features a number of great instrumentals, with really ripping guitar solos – plus a few vocal tracks too. The record's got a raw sound that's more of a Delmark Chicago blues vibe than a Chess Records one – and titles include "Top Of The Boogaloo", "Sting It", "Natural Wig", "Blues For Hippies", "Remember Me", "Snake", and "Sad Day Uptown".

✨✧ Magic Sam & Shakey JakeLive At Sylvio's 1966 ... CD
Rock Beat, 1966. Used ... $9.99
Great work from the legendary Magic Sam – a smoking Chicago bluesman of the 60s, and one who was taken away from us all too soon! The set captures Sam in a club in his west side home – playing with the kind of sharp and soulful style he soon made famous on his West Side Soul album for Delmark – served up here with an even grittier, rootsier sound! The recording is pretty great – and is especially great for Sam's tight guitar lines – and the set really documents that heady sound that made the west side scene so vibrant in the 60s. Titles include "Baby Scratch My Back", "Just Like A Fish", "Reconsider Baby", "Juke", "Dirty Work Going On", "I'm Tore Down", and "All Your Love" – and the CD also features three bonus tracks from a 1969 European performance.

Henry ThreadgillJust The Facts & Pass The Bucket ... CD
About Time, 1983. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Overlooked genius from Henry Threadgill – one of his under-exposed 80s sessions for the About Time label, and work that's every bit as great as his better-known sides for Delmark or Black Saint! The group here has a nice sense of freedom and interplay – almost a quality that hearkens back to Threadgill's roots in the AACM, thanks to strong contributions from Craig Harris on trombone, Olu Dara on trumpet, Fred Hopkins on bass, Deidre Murray on cello, and both Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch on percussion. The tracks are nicely arranged, but never too stiffly – and titles include "Cremation", "Black Blues", "Gateway", and "Just The Facts And Pass The Bucket". CD

✨✧ Jack DeJohnetteMade In Chicago ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant reunion of some key members of the AACM in Chicago – recorded at the Chicago Jazz Festival in a stunning performance that features drummer Jack DeJohnette in the lead, plus Muhal Richard Abrams on piano, Henry Threadgill on alto and flute, and Roscoe Mitchell on a variety of reeds! Bassist Larry Gray completes the group, and also plays a bit of cello – and the music has this wonderfully freewheeling, organic quality that really takes us back to the early years of the avant scene in Chicago – that very special sense of improvisation that the players forged back in the day – with an especially sonic-sensitive ear tuned towards the musicianship. The album is neither the usual ECM mode, nor even what we'd expect from DeJohnette – and instead takes us back to the earliest utterings from Chicago on labels like Delmark or Nessa. Titles include "Chant", "Jack 5", "Leave Don't Go Away", "Ten Minutes", and "Museum Of Time". CD
