Muhal Richard AbramsLevels & Degrees Of Light ... CD
Delmark, 1967. New Copy ... $8.99 12.99
Although recorded early in the career of Muhal Richard Abrams, this brilliant LP shows the pianist/composer turning away from the stock jazz and studio work of earlier years – to develop into one of the richest talents to rise from the Chicago avant underground of the 60s! At the time of the recording, Abrams was the president of the recently-founded AACM – and for the session, he's surrounded himself with some of the best young talents from Chicago, including Thurman Barker, Anthony Braxton, Leroy Jenkins, and Maurice McIntyre – all of whom help to create a complicated web of colors, shapes, and sounds, that prove that the youthful energy of the underground scene was more than capable of crafting sophisticated modernist documents. The album features three long works – "Levels & Degrees Of Light", "The Bird Song", and "My Thoughts Are My Future". CD

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

Jason AjemianFolklords ... CD
Delmark, 2014. Used ... $3.99
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention – in a mode that still hits plenty of jazz, with key use of work by Monk, Mingus, and Sun Ra – but which really abstracts things and takes them to a whole new level – opening up cosmic territory that lives up to the album's stated request to "Please Feel Yourselves". Ajemian plays bass and some electronics, in a quartet that also features Owen Stewart Robertson on guitar and electronics, Kid Bliss on alto sax and vibrolux, and Jason Nazary on drums – the last of which are played in a very slow, spacious style. All tracks are long – and titles include "Ask Mr Blunt Now" – which features extrapolations of "Satellites Are Spinning" and "Ask Me Now" – and "Orange Is The Color Of The Sun Then Blue Sky" – which is built upon some key Charles Mingus tunes. Other titles are originals, and include "Punk The Blues", "Material Girls", and "Freedom Is A Trail Of Tears". CD

Linsey AlexanderCome Back Baby ... CD
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Sweet Chicago blues from Linsey Alexander – a relative newcomer to the Delmark label, but a musician who's been working the north side clubs for years – and has really honed his sound into a tight electric groove! The style here is tight, but never too slick – with some slight undercurrents of funk and that sharp style of playing that has graced the mainstream of Chicago blues for years – but which has still been kept pretty close to the roots overall. Alexander sings and handles guitar – and titles include "Call My Wife", "Come Back Baby", "I Got A Woman", "Little Bit Of Soap", "Booze & Blues", and "Funky Feeling". 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

Anthony BraxtonTrio & Duet (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sackville/Delmark, Mid 70s. Used ... $9.99
Really creative work from Anthony Braxton – a 70s gem that has the reedman working in two different settings – both of them great! The first half of the record reunites Braxton with the electronics of Richard Teitelbaum – working here on some very cool moog, mixed with percussion – all in the best dark sounds of the Time Zones recording from the pair. Leo Smith is also in the group on trumpet – adding in a sense of space that's really wonderful – and Braxton himself works a variety of clarinets with really rich sounds – as the trio takes off on "Composition 36". The rest of the record shows that great old school side of Braxton – that crucial knowledge of the American jazz songbook that he only showed the world this strongly in the mid 70s – and which sparkles here as one of the best examples of that love! The remaining tracks feature Anthony on alto and Dave Holland on bass – working out some really special magic on "The Song Is You", "You Go To My Head", and "Embraceable You". CD features two bonus tracks too – both previously unissued – "On Green Dolphin Street" and "I Remember You". CD

Chicago Underground TrioFlamethrower ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... $7.99
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 ... $4.99
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
