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 ... CD
Delmark, 1968. Used ... $6.99
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". CD

Chicago Underground TrioChronicle ... CD
Delmark, 2007. Used ... $2.99
The first-ever live performance from the Chicago Underground team of Rob Mazurek and Chad Taylor – working here as a trio, with bassist Jason Ajemian as a wonderful addition to the group! Ajemian's basslines really dominate the initial part of the set – creating a pulse that draws in the drums of Taylor and cornet of Mazurek – who then both open up on a variety of other instruments, including moog, electric celeste, gong, bamboo flute, vibes, marimba, and other percussion – all used in an almost AACM-like way. Ajemian contributes some electronics to the set, as does Mazurek – but the best sounds here are all acoustic ones – played with an abstracted sensibility that's quite textural, and which furthers the trademark expressions that have made Mazurek and Taylor one of the most compelling jazz teams to come from the Chicago scene in the past few decades. Titles include "Initiation", "Resistance", "Power", "Transformation", "Crisis", and "Transcendence". CD

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

Omar ColemanBorn & Raised ... CD
Delmark, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Sweet Chicago work from Omar Coleman – a singer and harmonica player, and one who seems to work in that equal space between blues and soul that you might find on the late 60s Chess sides of Little Milton! The production is definitely blues, but Omar's overall performance opens up way past Chicago cliches – as does the spare backings, which can be slightly funky at points, and hit a deep soul groove at others. The album features some guest guitar from Toronzo Cannon, Mike Wheeler, and David Herrero – and titles include "Tryin To Do Right", "Man Like Me", "Lucky Man", "One Request", "Born & Raised", and "I Know You Been Cheating".

Giles CoreyStoned Soul ... CD
Delmark, 2014. Used ... $4.99
Giles Corey is a bluesman at heart, but he plays here in a style that's got lots of soul and funk touches too – particularly in the way he works his guitar with lots of wah-wah style riffs! The record's got a contemporary blues vibe overall, but Giles definitely has a slightly different style, too – one that's got respect for sounds that go way beyond the roots of his genre, and which showcase some of the better, later modes of Chicago blues, when it started criss-crossing a lot with other genres as well. The drums are mighty heavy – and bring an undercurrent of funk at points – and titles include "Pork & Beans", "Time Flies", "Bright Lights", "Morning Train", "That Girl Is Bad", "Home Is On My Mind", and "Watch Myself Go Crazy".

Dandeliers & OthersDandeliers & Other Great Groups On States – Chop Chop Boom ... CD
States/Delmark, Mid 50s. Used ... $5.99
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 ... $6.99
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
