Eddie HendersonEddie Henderson Anthology Vol 2 – The Capricorn Years: Realization/Inside Out ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1973. Used ... $9.99
Massive work from Eddie Henderson – 2 spaced-out jazz classics that put him right up there with Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock for pure 70s genius! The set kicks off with the very cosmic Realization – a tripped-out set with Herbie on keyboards, Pat Gleeson on Arp and moog, Bennie Maupin on reeds, Buster Williams on bass, and Lenny White on drums – all grooving together in a style that's some elements of Herbie's work of the time, especially his later sides for Warner Brothers. The blend of players is magnificent – and produces a really righteous sound that's picked up nicely by the album Inside Out, recorded slightly later in the same year. That set also features Maupin, Hancock, Gleeson, and Williams – plus Billy Hart on drums and Bill Summers on percussion. Together, the albums represent one of the most fruitful periods in Eddie Henderson's career – a freewheeling soul jazz era that was never to be duplicated on later albums! Titles include "Moussaka", "Anua", "Spiritual Awakening", "Mars In Libra", "Dreams", and "Inside Out". CD

Eddie HendersonPrecious Moment ... CD
Kind Of Blue, 2005. Used ... $2.99
Eddie Henderson's one of those players who's only grown better and better over the years – first starting out to great fame as a Miles-esque trumpeter working with electric grooves in the 70s – then moving onto really transform and grow as a musician over decades' worth of lesser-publicized recordings! This set's a great example of that growth – as Henderson blows with a careful, soulful vibe that's really wonderful – still some of the airy tones of years back, but phrasing that's a lot more complicated – and a way of mixing slightly sinister moments with sweeter styles that really keep things interesting, even on the mellower tracks in the set. Henderson plays both trumpet and flugelhorn, and the rest of the group features Kevin Hayes on piano, Ed Howard on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – on titles that include "Wild Flower", "Dance Cadaverous", "Precious Moment", "To Wisdom The Prize", and "Blue In Green".

Eddie Henderson & Laurent DeWildeColors Of Manhattan ... CD
IDA (France), 1990. Used ... $4.99
Really lovely work from trumpeter Eddie Henderson – an excellent album that showcases his more lyrical side on a host of ballads and midtempo numbers! The group features pianist Laurent DeWilde providing nicely sensitive accompaniment – often using just the same sort of space in his construction of a tune as Henderson uses in his trumpet and flugelhorn – aided by gentle rhythms from Ira Coleman on bass and Lewis Nash on drums – the latter of whom really makes things swing when the album hits its few harder-edged tracks, both Wayne Shorter number – "El Gaucho" and "Armageddon" – quite different than the rest, but worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "Fleurette Africaine", "Goodbye", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", and "For All We Know". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonEchoes ... CD
Marge (France), 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Eddie Henderson really lets his spirit flow here – working on some great long tracks in a sweet live setting – caught at a small club in Paris with backing from the trio of pianist Laurent DeWilde! Laurent really seems to get Henderson's groove here – and lays back with Eddie to let each tune take slow shape out of sound – then build tremendously with these sweeping, soulful lines that show that both players are still very much full of imagination on their solos. The group's completed by Gilles Naturel on bass and Simon Goubert on drums – and titles include "Lost", "Oasis", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Dubai", "Tender You", and "Sand Storm". CD

Herbie HancockMwandishi ... CD
Warner (UK), 1971. Used ... $4.99
An excellent session that was one of Herbie Hancock's first free-flowing fusion records of the 70s! Herbie's playing Fender Rhodes with a sound that's at once cosmically beautiful, soulfully fragile, and spacily grooving – and he gets some excellent accompaniment from an all-hip group of players that includes Benny Maupin on bass clarinet and flute, Buster Williams on bass, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and Julian Priester on trombone – plus percussion from Jose Areas and Ndugu Chancler. The roots of later classics like Sextet and Flood all start with this session – and the album contains 3 long tracks – "You'll Know When You Get There", "Ostinato", and "Wandering Sprit Song". CD

Willie Jones IIIGroundwork ... CD
WJ3, 2016. Used ... $9.99
Drummer Willie Jones has always given us great music in the past – but this time he seems to go even one better – working here with a killer group that features Eric Reed's piano and Buster Williams' bass in the core trio – which then expands through work from other players who include Warren Wolf on vibes, Steve Davis on trombone, Stacy Dillard on tenor, and Eddie Henderson on trumpet! The lineup shifts a bit throughout the record, making for a nice sense of variety – but Wolf's on most of the tracks, and his vibes bring in these bold chromatic lines that are a perfect fit for the album's tribute to Cedar Walton – whose spirit is not just invoked in the few compositions penned by the pianist – but also in the way that Jones puts the record together with a boldly lyrical sound. Titles include "Jamar", "New Boundary", "Groundwork", "Charity", "Hindsight", and "Toku Do". CD

✨✧ Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic/Dark Of Light ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Righteous early jazz work from Norman Connors – a pair of albums back to back on a single CD! Dance Of Magic is a landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". Dark Of Light is a sensational bit of righteous soul jazz – right up there with the best work on Strata East and Black Jazz from the time! The sound here is full, soulful, and spiritual – as Connors heads up a large ensemble that includes luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Eddie Henderson, Gary Bartz, Carlos Garnett, Buster Williams, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – all working together in a formation that's free spirited, yet tightly unified – often at a level that's even stronger than their own recordings! The album mixes a few longer tracks with shorter numbers – in a mode that reminds us a lot of Garnett's classic Black Love album – and titles include "Song For Rosa", "Black Lightnin", "Dark Of Light", "Butterfly Dreams", and "Laughter".

✨✧ Charles EarlandLeaving This Planet ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a sound that's majestic and powerful, almost with an indie soul jazz sort of vibe overall! There's an immediate urgency to most numbers that's totally undeniable – a lesson learned from the electric experiments of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, but fused down into a core essence – then let loose on a soaring journey to the heavens. Earland plays Hammond, moog, clavinet, and Arp on the set – and other players include Joe Henderson on tenor, Dave Hubbard on alto and soprano sax, Eddie Henderson and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Marc Elf on guitar, Harvey Mason on drums, and the incredible Patrick Gleeson on synthesizers – bringing in a spacey edge to the record that's really amazing! Rudy Copeland sings a wonderful vocal on the title cut, "Leaving This Planet" – and all other instrumental cuts include "Red Clay", "Warp Factor 9", "Tyner", "Van Jay", "Never Ending Melody", "Mason's Galaxy", and "Asteroid".

✨✧ Victor LewisKnow It Today, Know It Tomorrow ... CD
Red (Italy), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully soulful work from drummer Victor Lewis – and a record that introduced the world to the tremendous tenor talents of Seamus Blake! The set's got a relaxed, flowing vibe that reminds us a lot of some of Lewis' collaborations with Bobby Watson – although Blake's tenor tone gives the record a deeper twist overall – set up beautifully alongside piano from Eduardo Simon and bass from Christian McBride, and also featuring a bit of trumpet and flugelhorn from Eddie Henderson – although honestly, Blake's the real standout horn talent on this date. Lewis wrote most of the tunes himself – somewhat poetic numbers, but with a lot of soul and swing – and titles include "The Loss Of A Moment", "Know It Today Know It Tomorrow", "Between Two Worlds", "The Truce", and "If You Only Knew Me".

✨✧ Freddie RoachBrown Sugar (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smoking work on Hammond from Freddie Roach – a key player in the Blue Note lineup of the 60s, and a strong link between the label's soul jazz and modern sides! The sound here is a really beautiful one – partly in the organ/tenor mode forged by Baby Face Willette and John Patton in their early recordings for Blue Note, but also stretching out in that way that started to show up in Patton's later work, and in the seminal work from the time by Larry Young. Freddie's touch on the keys is really opening up here – clearly driven by some more original ideas that help push the album past the more R&B influenced sound of some of his earlier work. Players on the set include Joe Henderson on tenor, Eddie Wright on guitar, and Clarence Johnston on drums – and title cuts include "Brown Sugar", plus "All Night Long", "Have You Ever Had The Blues", and "The Right Time".

✨✧ Buddy TerryPure Dynamite ... CD
Mainstream/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Subtle dynamite from reedman Buddy Terry – easily one of the most righteous players to work for the Mainstream Records label during its early 70s jazz funk years – and an artist who really brings a wider-ranging, Strata East-like sensibility to this set! Buddy plays tenor, soprano sax, and flute on the date – really stretching out on long, extended tracks recorded in the company of some very hip players – including Eddie Henderson and Woody Shaw on trumpets, Kenny Barron and Joanne Brackeen on electric and acoustic piano, Stanley Clarke on bass, Billy Hart and Lenny White on drums, and Airto and Mtume on percussion! Most tracks build up slowly, with a nicely organic sensibility – egged on by long, stretching solos from Buddy – and titles include "Baba Hengates", "Quiet Afternoon", "Miscegenation", and "Paranoia".

✨✧ Benny GolsonNew Time, New 'Tet ... CD
Concord, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Benny Golson's one of those players who never lets us down – and here, into his 80th year in on the planet, the man's still burning strongly and soulfully! The set's got a very solid, put-together sort of sound – the quality that's always made us seek out Golson albums of any vintage, amazed at the depth of feeling and richness of creativity that Benny can bring to even a simple sort of date. This one's definitely a cut above, though – self-produced by Golson, and featuring a lineup with Eddie Henderson on trumpet and flugelhorn, Steve Davis on trombone, Mike LeDonne on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Carl Allen on drums – all rock-solid players who help Benny flesh out his sound beautifully here, reaching some nice sensitive points at times, then sliding back into warmly soulful grooves. Al Jarreau guests with vocals on a version of "Whisper Not" – and other titles include "Verdi's Voice", "Uptown Afterburn", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", "From Dream To Dream", "Grove's Groove", "L'Adieu", and "Love Me In A Special Way".

✨✧ Thad Jones & Mel LewisLive On Tour – Switzerland 1969 ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work from the legendary big band of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – a live performance recorded in Switzerland at the same time as the group's classic recordings for the Solid State label! Given that the date was recorded by Solid State producer Sonny Lester, the feel here is quite similar – and the album stands strongly alongside the better-known live dates by the group at the Village Vanguard from the same time. As on those records, there's a tremendous blend of driving energy and lyrical musing going on here – qualities that are very hard to balance this well in such a big band, but which became the trademark sounds of the Jones/Lewis group as they helped redirect large ensemble jazz towards new ends as the 60s drew to a close. Players are all top-shelf – with rhythm by Roland Hanna on piano and Richard Davis on bass, alongside the drums of Lewis – plus saxes from Joe Henderson, Pepper Adams, Jerome Richardson, and Jerry Dodgion; trumpets from Richard Williams, Thad Jones, and Snooky Young; and trombones from Eddie Bert and Jimmy Knepper. Titles include "Second Race", "Don't Ever Leave Me", "Come Sunday", "Don't Get Sassy", "Groove Merchant", "Ahh That's Freedom", "The Waltz You Swang For Me", and "Bible Story". CD

✨✧ Jimmy SmithSoftly As A Summer Breeze ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Material recorded early in the Blue Note career of Jimmy Smith – but not issued until the mid 60s, and often overlooked at the time! The record's still in the spare trio mode of the early Jimmy Smith years – but is a bit lighter and more lyrical than before – a nice change from the harder tones of Jimmy's early trio records, and a hint and the expansive lines he'd take on later recordings! The lineup features mostly Kenny Burrell on guitar and Philly Joe Jones on drums – plus a few additional tracks that use Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and titles include "These Foolish Things", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "One For Philly Joe", and a nice version of Monk's "Hackensack". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Willow Weep For Me", "Ain't No Use", "Angel Eyes", and "Ain't That Love" – all with vocals by Bill Henderson! CD

✨✧ Pete & Sheila EscovedoSolo Two/Happy Together ... CD
Fantasy, 1977/1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 great groovers from the team of Pete & Sheila Escovedo! Solo Two is funky Latin grooves from Sheila Escovedo – recorded in the decade before she hooked up with Prince and dropped the "scovedo" from her last name – when she was part of a hip Bay Area scene that also included her brother Pete! The album's got a great blend of funky fusion and Latin styles – served up with a sound that's right up there with the best on Fantasy Records from the time – a really unique fusion of modes that shows just how much trading of styles was going on in that scene during the 70s. Billy Cobham produced, with a definite ear for the percussion in the group – and the rest of the group features Mark Soskin on keyboards, Ray Obiedo on guitar, and some added horns to flesh out the sound nicely. Pete plays timbales, Sheila's on congas, and titles include "Bittersweet", "Solo Tu", and "Fantasy Junction" – plus a nice version of Milton Nascimento's "Vera Cruz". Happy Together features tight and soulful grooves from the team of Pete and Sheila Escovedo – a set that still has elements of the pair's Latin roots, but which also explodes in a flurry of funk, soul, and fusion moments too! As with their first Fantasy album, the duo have Billy Cobham on deck to produce – giving the record a sweetly soulful sound that's a bit like his own work of the late 70s, only a bit more Latinized in the percussion. Cobham also plays drums – and other players include Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Mark Soskin on keyboards, and Ray Obiedo on guitar. Titles include "Bolinas", "Ain't That The Truth", "Hello Like Before", "Burrito Bandito", "Cueros", and "Bridges (Travessia)". Note: In order to fit both albums on one CD, the set omits the track "Clean Air" from Solo Two. CD

✨✧ Billy HarperDestiny Is Yours ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1989. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible return to form for Billy Harper – and a landmark album recorded at the end of the 80s, when we'd all but given up on him! The session returns Billy to the majesty of his 70s work – placing him in the setting of long tracks, modal rhythms, and spiritual motivation – the uniquely Harper territory first forged with Lee Morgan and Max Roach, sounding better than ever here, with all the confidence of his youth. The group's a quintet – with Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Francesca Tanksley on piano, Clarence Seay on bass, and Newman Baker on drums – working perfectly as a unit, with a power level that's simply amazing. Harper's the main star, reaching towards the heavens with some incredible solos – but he also clearly knows that he wouldn't be able to do what he does without the great level of support he's getting from the rest of the group. Tracks include "Destiny Is Yours", "If One Could Only See", "Groove From Heaven", and "East West Exodus". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Dance In The Question" and "My Funny Valentine". CD

✨✧ Azar LawrenceMystic Journey ... CD
Furthermore, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
Brilliantly burning work from Azar Lawrence – wonderfully mature, yet filled with all the soulful fire of his best albums of the 70s! Lawrence plays both tenor and soprano sax – blowing with this searching, stretched-out post-Coltrane vibe – but as with all his best work, there's a strong sense of rhythm that really holds things together – a living pulse that grabs us right away, and really draws us in beautifully – reminding us why we've always treasured Azar's records so much! Other players are great too – and include Eddie Henderson on trumpet and flugelhorn, Gerald Hayes on alto, Benito Gonzalez on piano, Essiet Essiet on bass, and Rashied Ali on drums – really helping the group find their groove. Titles include "Quest", "Walk Spirit Talk Spirit", "Mystic Journey", "Journey's End", "Starting Point", "Adrees", and "Say It Over Again". CD

Freddie HubbardBlue Spirits (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... $6.99
Quite an unusual session for Freddie Hubbard – one of his most modernist albums for Blue Note, recorded with a larger group that includes James Spaulding on alto and flute, Joe Henderson (or Hank Mobley) on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and the surprising inclusion of Kiane Zawadi on euphonium! The presence of that instrument gives the album a real "bottom" sound – taking the overall mood much more into the depths than on some of Freddie's previous sets – really earning the album its "blue spirits" tag. Big Black also plays a bit of percussion on a few tracks, and titles include "Cunga Black", "Soul Surge", and "Outer Forces". CD
