Eric AlexanderUp, Over & Out ... CD
Delmark, 1993. Used ... $9.99
Clear, clean, and tremendous tenor work from a young Eric Alexander – working here in one of his early partnerships with pianist Harold Mabern – in a way that really helps to re-direct Mabern's energy, and take him back to the glory days of his recordings in the 60s! Alexander's tenor has a classic sound here that's wonderful – focused and very sure of itself, and able to roll out on longer numbers with a great sense of imagination that avoids any too-easy notes or hackneyed choices. Mabern follows suit strongly – sounding better than on any of his trio records from the same period, and matching Alexander's youthful energy with some soaring lines of his own – often in a modal mode that seems to bring out the best in both players. Drums are by the rock-solid Joe Farnsworth, and bass is by John Ore – on tracks that include "Up Over & Out", "Eronel", "Flying Fish", "Blues For Mabe", "I Remember Clifford", and "Bewitched". CD

Corey DennisonNight After Night ... CD
Delmark, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Deep-burning Chicago blues from Corey Dennison – one of the few contemporary players who can still hold onto the electric fire from that moment when the Windy City scene first broke wide to much larger national appeal! Corey sings with a full, raspy style – and augments his lyrics with lots of heady guitar work – all in a style that's nicely lean, and which is never too over-adorned, or overproduced! The group's a quartet – with Gerry Hunt on second guitar, organ, and harmonica – and titles include "Phone Keeps Ringing", "Better Man", "I Get The Shivers", "Misti", "Hear My Plea", "Stuck In Chicago", "Troubles Of The World", and "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby".

Exploding Star OrchestraStars Have Shapes ... LP
Delmark, 2010. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The most amazing records to date from Rob Mazurek's Exploding Star Orchestra – just the kind of cosmic, spiritual session you'd expect from the group's name – perfectly placed in a Chicago lineage that includes Sun Ra's Arkestra and the best years of the AACM! The group's got all the collaborative spirit of the latter reference – a largeish ensemble made up of some of the city's most important avant musicians in recent years – including Nicole Mitchell on flute, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, Josh Abrams on acoustic bass, Matt Bauder on clarinet and tenor, Jason Stein on bass clarinet, and Mike Reed and John Herndon on drums – all players who know each others strengths through countless gigs together – coming together under the visionary leadership of Rob Mazurek on cornet. There's some slight electro-acoustic elements, which further complicate the sound of the record – but all without ever taking it off base – and the whole thing's got a righteous sort of energy that makes us mighty proud that sounds this great came from our hometown. Titles include "ChromoRocker", "Impression #1", "Ascenscion Ghost Impression #2", and "Three Blocks Of Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul GiallorenzoFlow ... CD
Delmark, 2017. Used ... $8.99
Pianist Paul Giallorenzo has a fantastic flow here – a deeply personal sound that certainly warrants the title – and which is set up beautifully in a trio with Josh Abrams on bass and Mikel Patrick Avery on drums! It's great to hear Abrams working as a sideman in a setting that's a bit more standard than some of his own projects – as his basswork is sublime, and really matches the pacing and energy of Giallorenzo's work on the keys – in a mode that's modern, but never too avant – with almost the freshness of some of the most inventive pianists of the 60s! Paul wrote all the tunes on the album, and they're extremely fresh – not overplayed standards, or easygoing melodies – but instead material that finds its own space and pace, but without ever calling undue attention to itself. Titles include "Flipd Scrip", "Over/Under", "Rolling", "Interstice", "Fractures", "A Way We Go", and "Lightness". CD

Marty Grosz & The Fat BabiesDiga Diga Do ... CD
Delmark, 2015. Used ... $8.99
A trad jazz legend joins the younger Fat Babies combo – in a set that really illustrates the renewed commitment to old school styles at Delmark Records! Guitarist Marty Grosz last recorded for Delmark in 1959, as a sideman for Albert Nicholas – but his strength hasn't dimmed a bit over the years, as his tightly rhythmic playing makes for a great complement to the Fat Babies' sound! Marty gets plenty of room to solo, and impact the rhythm section too – and the album's overflowing with tight, short numbers that include "My Daddy Rocks Me", "Hold Me", "Diga Diga Doo", "A Jazz Holiday", "Blue", and "Why Couldn't It Be Poor Little Me".

JB Hutto & His HawksHawk Squat ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 19.99
One of the most dynamic, most on-fire blues albums recorded during the 60s by Delmark Records – a set that bursts right out of the Chicago clubs with the guitar of JB Hutto firmly in the lead! Hutto's a killer right from the start – singing and playing with a ferocity that easily matches, if not beats, the bigger 60s names on Chess Records – and his style of inflection leaves us wondering how often he must have to change the strings, or maybe even his entire guitar! The album's got some great help in the small combo too – with Sunnyland Slim on organ and piano, and the unlikely Maurice McIntyre on tenor sax – blowing very well in a bluesy mode, before rising to later avant territory as Kalaparusha. Titles include "If You Change Your Mind", "Speak My Mind", "What Can You Get Outside That You Can't Get At Home", "20% Alcohol", "Hip Shakin", and "Send Her Home To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Magic SamBlack Magic ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 15.99
Rough-edged blues from the west side of Chicago – a stone classic from the mighty Magic Sam – a player who was taken from us all too soon! On the west side, they mix plenty of soul in with their blues – and you can definitely hear that on this stone smoker – a record that has roots in the same scene as Syl Johnson, whose modes definitely creep into the groove at times! Sam's combo here is mighty nice – with Eddie Shaw on tenor, Lafayette Leake on piano, and Mighty Joe Young on guitar – and titles include "Stop You're Hurting Me", "Easy Baby", "What Have I Done Wrong", "It's All Your Fault", "You Belong To Me", "You Don't Love Me Baby", and "San Jose".

Magic SamLive At The Avant Garde – June 22, 1968 ... LP
Delmark, 1968. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 24.99
A hell of a great record from Magic Sam – a really well-recorded live set from a small club in Milwaukee, and an album that really gets at all the gritty genius that made Sam so great! The set's almost equal parts blues and soul – definitely the former, but with plenty of funky undercurrents of the latter, too – especially given the open setting, and the group's mighty strong drums from Bob Richey! Sam's vocals and guitar are wonderfully raspy, but super-sharp at the same time – and the only other instrumentation in the set is some mighty nice bass from Big Mojo Elem. Titles include "Hully Gully Twist", "I Need You So Bad", "Feelin Good", "You Belong To Me", "That's All Right", "Lookin Good", "San Ho Zay", "Every Night Every Day", and "It's All Your Fault Baby". Also features an LP bonus track – "I Found Me A New Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Magic SamWest Side Soul ... LP
Delmark, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A classic bit of indie blues from the Chicago scene – featuring some great players from the second generation after Chess Records stopped picking up the younger local talents! Magic Sam leads the group on vocals and guitar, and he's working here with Mighty Joe Young on guitar, Odie Payne on drums, and Mack Thompson on bass – all to craft a set of rough and ready blues tunes that would have played well on both sides of the tracks at the time. Titles include "That's All I Need", "All Of Your Love", "I Don't Want No Woman", "Mama Mama Talk To Your Daughter", and "Lookin Good", a nice instrumental! LP, Vinyl record album

Lester BowieNumbers 1 & 2 (50th anniversary edition) ... CD
Nessa, 1967. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Lester Bowie as a leader – and a set that stands in importance right next to the early Delmark AACM sides by Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell! Plus, the album's almost an early Art Ensemble of Chicago effort, given the lineup – which features Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn; Roscoe Mitchell on alto, soprano, clarinet, and flute; Malachi Favors on bass; and Joseph Jarman on alto, sopranino, and clarinet!. The session was cut in 1967 by Chuck Nessa, and it features performances of the tracks "Number 1" and "Number 2" – very much in the Art Ensemble mode, with alternating instrumentation, sharp attacks and spare moments, plus a good dash of humor!

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
