Jason AdasiewiczFrom The Region ... CD
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Amazing work from one of the greatest jazz musicians working today – vibist Jason Adasiewicz, a player with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of! It's been years since we've been this excited about anyone on the vibes – and Adasiewicz not only returns the instrument to the prominence in avant jazz that it had during Bobby Hutcherson's "new thing" years, but also pushes the instrument forward in this incredible flurry of tones, sounds, and timings! And while these qualities have always been showcased in all of his albums as a leader – and his great dates with other players too – they really come to the forefront in this sublime trio session – a date that only features Jason on vibes, Mike Reed on drums, and Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass. The trio are incredible throughout – and the record's a modern jazz treasure that you could easily stack next to your most forward-thinking classics on ESP, MPS, or even Blue Note in the mid 60s. Titles include "Two Comes One", "Mae Flowers", "Classic Route", "Leeza", "I Forgot The Words", and "Cubane". CD

Anthony Braxton3 Compositions Of New Jazz ... LP
Delmark, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.99
Even at an early age, Anthony Braxton was already experimenting with new forms of jazz composition – and this 1968 debut as a leader is filled with the imaginative approaches to music that would make him a key shaper of jazz in the next decade! The tracks here are all quite long, and although free-sounding, still have an intrisic logic dictated by Braxton's compositional ideals – played by himself on alto, soprano sax, clarinet, flute, and a variety of other instruments – in a quartet that features Leo Smith on trumpet and mellophone, Muhal Richard Abrams on piano and cello, and Leroy Jenkins on violin and viola. In true AACM fashion, all players pick up other instruments as the tunes roll on – percussion bits, kazoo, slide whistle, bells, and more – almost more Art Ensemble-like than some of Braxton's more tightly-controlled environments on later records. Titles include two pieces titled in Braxton's equation-like style – plus "The Bell". LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago Underground TrioFlamethrower ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... $5.99
Another wonderful album from this groundbreaking Chicago combo! The group's now a permanent quartet, with the extremely great addition of Jeff Parker on guitar and electronics – and the album continues to push the boundaries of Rob Mazurek's unique sound. The liner notes on the back refer to a NY Times article that described the group's sound as "painterly", and to us, that's a pretty fair estimation of their sound. The group work in wide washes of sound – structured around conventional jazz traditions, but touched with a more abstract approach derived from their connection to the Chicago rock and experimental scene. Titles include "Warm Marsh", "Elroy", "504", "The World Has Changed", "Woman In Motion", and "Antiquity". CD

✨✧ Chicago Underground TrioPossible Cube ... CD
Delmark, 1999. Used ... $2.99
Groundbreaking work from the ever-changing melange of players associated with Chicago underground jazz musician Rob Mazurek. This "Chicago Underground" set features a trio lineup – with Mazurek on cornet, electronics, organ, and vibes; Chad Taylor on percussion and vibes; and Noel Kuppersmith on bass and vibes. Jeff Parker sits in on guitar and organ – and the record's got a free-flowing sound that's really wonderful, and which reminds us a lot of the best modal moments of the 70s, mixed with some of the more rhythmic sounds of the AACM. Titles include "Shaw Town", "Into Another You", "Passaros", "Pisces", "The Enormous Room", "Teletransporation Unit 3", "Energia", "La Jetee", and "Othello". CD

Dandeliers & OthersDandeliers & Other Great Groups On States – Chop Chop Boom ... CD
States/Delmark, Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
Seminal vocal group work from the Chicago scene of the 50s – and a wonderful collection of some of the lesser-known acts working in the Windy City at the time! All the cuts here were recorded for the United and States labels – and at the time, got a lot less circulation than work on labels like Chess, Vee Jay, and even Parrot – even though the material here easily rivals some of the best doo wop sides for those imprints. The Dandeliers head off the set, and are featured on a third of the tracks – and they're an amazing group who easily rival The Moonglows or Flamingos at their early best – with a similar sort of heavenly harmony approach. Other groups here are great too – some nicely rough around the edges – and titles include "My Love", "She's Mine", "Shu Wop", "Loving Partner", "Chop Chop Boom", and "Little Man" by The Dandeliers; "In Your Dreams" and "Go Where My Baby Lives" by The Strollers; "Lonesome Baby", "Ridin & Rockin", and "Big City Bound" by The Hornets; "Sugar Lips" and "Gloria" by The Five Chances; "Mellow Daddy" by The Drakes; and "Girl Of Mine" and "I Knew I Had A Chance" by The Palms. CD features a good number of unreleased tracks, too! CD

Kahil El'ZabarWhat It Is ... CD
Delmark, 2013. Used ... $8.99
One of the freshest albums in years from Chicago percussion legend Kahil El'Zabar – the recording debut of a great little combo he's been heading for the past few years – and a group who would have been right at home during the more progressive 60s years at Blue Note! The sound here is wonderfully soulful, but in ways that are different than some of Kahil's other records – thanks in part to the strong use of tenor from Kevin Nabors – a player who helps give the record a bold bite right upfront, with tones that hearken back to some of the late 60s' best soulful and spiritual moments – played with more forward focus than some of El'Zabar's other reedmen. The album's definitely got an AACM pedigree, but it's more straightforward, too – and we mean that in a good way – often pushed by modal elements that seem to also give Kahil a rich new sort of energy in his drumming too. Justin Dillard plays some great Hammond, Fender Rhodes, and piano – and the group's completed by Junius Paul on bass. Titles include "Song Of Myself", "What It Is", "Impressions", "The Nature Of", and "Kari". CD

Kahil El'Zabar's Ritual TrioRenaissance Of The Resistance ... CD
Delmark, 1995. Used ... $9.99
Percussionist Kahil El'Zabar leads the Ritual Trio, and the group's one of the truest extensions of the AACM spirit to still exist in Chicago. No wonder, though, as it's got Malachi Favors of the Art Ensemble on bass, as well as multi-faceted reedman Ari Brown on saxes. El'Zabar's the real core of the group, though, and his soulful approach to percussion adds in a degree of warmth that always humanizes the work of the group, pushing it past simple virtuostic improvisation. This set from 1995 still has the group going strong – and it features many strong tracks, including "Sweet Meat", "Fatsmo", " Save Your Love For Me", "Golden Sea", "Trane In Mind", and "Ornette". CD

Kahil El'Zabar's Ritual Trio with Pharoah SandersAfrica N'Da Blues ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... $8.99
The Ritual Trio gets some mighty hip company here – the legendary Pharoah Sanders, who really fleshes out the group's sound with his tremendous work on tenor sax! Core members Ari Brown and Malachi Favors work as a well-tooled unit under the leadership of Kahil El Zabar – no surprise, given that all three had been working together for a decade and a half by the time of this recording. And with Sanders on tenor for the date, Brown plays a bit more piano than his usual reeds – letting Pharoah spin out soulful, spiritual lines that break somewhat from the more rhythmic approach that's usually used by the group. Favors' basswork is a real pleasure, as always – an earthy grounding that helps keep Kahil El Zabar in focus – and titles on the record include two takes of "Ka-Real", plus "Africanos/Latinos", "Miles Mode", "Autumn Leaves", "Africa N'Da Blues", and "Pharoah's Song".
