Eddie HendersonHeritage ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1976. Used ... $11.99
Essential work from Eddie Henderson – one of the trumpeter's hippest albums of the 70s, and a key link between his early righteous days and his later smoother sound! The set's a near-perfect blend of all elements involved – tight funky rhythms, spacey soulful instrumentation, and wicked production work from the mighty Skip Drinkwater in the studio – a record that's as essential to his legacy as Gears is to that of Larry Mizell! Henderson's trumpet work is totally great – often muted, and always snakey inside the rhythms – and other players here include Julian Priester on trombone, Hadley Caliman on flute and soprano sax, Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Paul Jackson on bass, and Headhunter Mike Clark on drums. Titles include the excellent groover "Inside You", plus "Kudu", "Acuphuncture", "Time & Space", "Dr Mganga", and "Dark Shadow". CD

CookersTime & Time Again ... CD
Motema, 2014. Used ... $6.99
One of the greatest groups going in recent years – a strong revival of key soulful jazz talents from previous years, all working under the leadership of trumpeter David Weiss – who's really helped them come together and find a whole new sort of energy! The lineup features tremendous tenor from Billy Harper – sounding at his classic best with The Cookers – especially when the rhythms spin out majestically from George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – often with these dark undercurrents that make the music wonderfully powerful! And in addition to Weiss on trumpet, the frontline also includes Eddie Henderson's trumpet as well, plus the alto of Donald Harrison – and the horns have a great way of folding together and interweaving, before breaking out in these very personal solos. Titles include tracks by almost all members of the group – and tunes include "Slippin & Slidin", "Renada", "Sir Galahad", "Time & Time Again", "Dance Of The Invisible Nymph", "Dance Eternal Spirits Dance", and "Three Fall".

Billy HarperLive On Tour In The Far East Vol 2 ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1991. Used ... $11.99
Volume 2 in this great series of live work recorded by Harper in 1991 – a set of tracks performed in Taiwan, with a quintet that includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet! The feel here is similar to Harper's best late 70s work – with long tracks that open up in modal fashion, setting the stage for exploratory passages on the tenor – yet never going too far or too freakish to lose their soul. The blowing's in a perfect post-Coltrane mode, and the set features original Harper tunes that include "Destiny Is Yours", "Priestess", and "Trying To Make Heaven My Home". CD

Mingus Big BandLive In Tokyo At The Blue Note 2005 ... CD
Mingus Music/Sunnyside, 2005. Used ... $4.99
A surprisingly wonderful recent live set by the Mingus Big Band – recorded with a very different spirit than back when the group was lead by the legendary Charles, but still pretty great overall! Players here are musicians well-tuned to the surging emotion and measured intensity of Mingus at his best – and while there's perhaps a bit less power here than before, the group more than make up for that lack with a strongly focused energy and keen sense of purpose. Players include Frank Lacy on trombone, Eddie Henderson and Jack Walrath on trumpet, Craig Handy on alto and flute, Ronnie Cuber on baritone, and Dave Kikoski on piano – and titles are all new versions of Mingus compositions "Wham Bam", "Opus Four", "Celia", "Bird Calls", "Meditations", "Prayer For Passive Resistance", "Free Cell Block F", and "Ecclusiastics".

Lee RitenourFirst Course ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1976. Used ... $9.99
Excellent early work by Lee Ritenour – tight and soulful, but not as slick or commercial as later records! The album's an all-star, all-soul fusion effort – with work by Harvey Mason on drums, Dave Grusin and Patrice Rushen on keyboards, and Tom Scott on reeds – and the whole thing's produced by Skip Drinkwater, who handles the set with that easy funky groove that he brought to his excellent work with Eddie Henderson and Bobby Humphrey! There's loads of nice electric funk tracks on the album – including a great version of Grusin's "Theme From 3 Days Of The Condor", Jerry Peters' "Canticle For The Universe", and the cuts "A Little Bit Of this & A Little Bit Of That", "Wild Rice", and "Sweet Syncopation".

✨✧ Erik TruffazBending New Corners ... CD
Blue Note (France), 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic funky jazz from France! Erik Truffaz is one of Blue Note's best players in Europe – and he's got a slow sly slinky funk style that's very reminiscent of Eddie Henderson in his classic years. This brilliant album on Blue Note mixes Truffaz spacey trumpet with killer Fender Rhodes solos, and lots tight percussion and rhythm work – making the whole thing sound like some wonderful lost album on CTI or Kudu! A few tracks have the ersatz rapper thrown in – rapping in English, and not too bad, but certainly not one of the stronger points of the record – but there's more than enough instrumental bits to keep you going, and the album's nice and long. A great one – with a really classic feel! Titles include "And", "Sweet Mercy", "Arroyo", "More", "Sieggfried", and "Bending New Corners". CD

✨✧ Pharoah SandersJourney To The One ... CD
Evidence, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
A later album by Pharoah, but one of his best! The record is a very tight set of tracks that includes the amazing jazz dance anthem "You've Got to Have Freedom", a killer groover that will stay in your head for days after you've heard it! The rest of the material's equally great, and the record has a solidity that matches all of the soulful spirituality of his Impulse years with the a tightness that really sends the message home! Pharoah's working here with a great set of soul jazz musicians – players that include Eddie Henderson, John Hicks, and Idris Muhammad – and the double-length album's filled with great tracks that include "Think About The One", "Bedria", "Doktor Pitt", and "After the Rain".
