Eddie HendersonEchoes ... CD
Marge (France), 2004. Used ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Eddie HendersonHeritage ... CD
Blue Note, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Eddie HendersonMahal (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent document of how the rawer soul jazz spiritualism of the early 70s smoothed out to become the spacey mellow fusion of the late 70s. The players all have their jazz funk chops – and include Paul Humphrey, Herbie Hancock, Bennie Maupin, and Bill Summers – and they've taken years at their craft to perfect their interplay in a subtle fashion, without the heavier full-on message of earlier days. Skip Drinkwater's producing the set – and as on some of his best work from the time, he manages to give the whole thing a smooth sound, yet still retain a lot of the soul. Lots of nice grooves, with almost a Larry Mizell feeling to them. Titles include "Mahal", "Ecstasy", "Butterfly", and "Cyclops". CD

Herbie HancockHerbie Hancock – The Warner Brothers Years 1969 to 1972 (Fat Albert Rotunda/Crossings/Mwandishi/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Warner, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 3 CDs ... $16.99
A trio of great albums from Herbie Hancock – funky, spiritual, and plenty soulful – and presented here with bonus tracks too! First up is Fat Albert Rotunda – the first album to feature Herbie really breaking away from his straight jazz work – moving into a groove that's nice and funky, using electric piano along with acoustic, to forge the sound that he'd develop famously over the 70s. The album's got a harder, heavier sound than some of his straight electric ones – and it features a larger group with soloists that include Johnny Coles on trumpet and Joe Henderson on tenor – plus some sweet basslines from Buster Williams! Includes the cuts "Fat Mama" and "Wiggle Waggle", both sample favorites, plus "Tell Me A Bedtime Story" and "Lil Brother". CD also features bonus mono mixes of "Wiggle Waggle" and "Fat Mama". Next is Mwandishi – 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 features bonus promo edits of "Ostinato" and "You'll Know When You Get There". Crossings is a record that really steps up Herbie's range of keyboards, mixing in both acoustic and electric pianos, mellotron, and even a bit of spacey moog from the legendary Patrick Gleeson! The whole thing is wonderful – very open and flowing, and even more organic than Hancock's later work on Columbia – especially given the length of the tracks on the set. In addition to Gleeson, other players include Benny Maupin on reeds, Julian Priester on trombone, Buster Williams on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – and titles include the 3 long tracks "Quasar", "Sleeping Giant", and "Water Torture" – all good ones! CD features bonus single mixes of "Crossings" and "Water Torture". CD
(In great shape!)

✨✧ Herbie HancockHerbie Hancock Septet – Live At The Boston Jazz Workshop ... CD
Hi Hat, 1973. Used ... $11.99
Sweet 70s electric work from the mighty Herbie Hancock – a live performance that's got some of the best spiritual elements of his late Warner Brothers years, mixed with some of the Headhunters modes to come! The album only includes two very long tracks – "Hornets" and "You'll Know When You Get There" – stretched-out, opened up, and with these magical moments from Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Benny Maupin on reeds, Julian Priester on trombone, and Buster Williams on bass. Billy Hart is on drums and "Scorch" plays congas – but both players sit back some times, and just let the magic happen from the other instrumentalists. And in addition to lots of keyboards from Hancock, Pat Gleeson adds in a bit more electronics to the mix as well. CD

Billy HarperSomalia ... CD
Evidence, 1995. Used ... $6.99
Great recent work from tenor giant Billy Harper! After his classic sides in the 70s, we didn't hear from Harper for years as a leader, but when this one came out, it was well worth the wait! The album's a beautiful batch of tracks in Harper's unique style of soulful avant blowing, and the players on the record with him are incredibly sensitive to the sound he's trying to achieve. Eddie Henderson is on trumpet, Horacee Arnold is on drums, and Louie "Mbiki" Spears is on bass. All tracks are long and spiritual, as with Harper's best work, and titles include "Somalia", "Thy Will Be Done", "Quest", and "Light Within". CD

Erik TruffazFace A Face ... CD
Blue Note (France), 2006. Used 2CD ... $4.99
Way more than just a conventional live album from trumpeter Erik Truffaz – as the package offers two totally different slices of Erik's work – one disc with his Ladyland group, and one with his more conventional quartet! Truffaz first caught our ears way back in the 90s, when his electric, atmospheric approach to funky jazz reminded us a lot of the best 70s modes of Miles Davis and Eddie Henderson – but also had a leaner, sometimes funkier groove that breathed new life into the sound of Blue Note on the European scene. That style is explored strongly here with Erik's regular quartet – matching fierce trumpet lines with funky drums, guitar, and some warm keyboards – and it's also expanded on even further by the Ladyland group, who bring in Eastern influences to their music, and echo the rapidly changing ethnicities on the current French scene. Between both discs, there's a whopping amount of work here – 26 tracks that include "Sweet Mercy", "King B", "Wilfried", "Bending New Corners", "Walk Of The Giant Turtle", "Arroyo", "Saloua", "Gedech", "Dubophone", "Ghost Drummer", "Yabous", "Outlaw", and "Big Wheel".

VariousElegant Funk – Mixed By DJ Muro ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s/2011. Used ... $11.99
A fantastic mix of classic funky soul – from 70s dancefloor jazz funk on Blue Note, to group and solo soul efforts for other labels under the Capitol & EMI empire – mixed masterfully the DJ Muro on this excellent set from EMI Japan! It's a great batch of sophisticated, well produced jams geared for the dancefloor – be it Mizell-produced jazz funk, bouncy group soul, or early 80s grooves – numbers by Donald Byrd, Dayton, Rene & Angela, Melba Moore, Brass Construction, Pyrymyd, Perry & Sanlin, Tavares and more! It's a great continuous mix by Muro, who creates a pretty seamless flow of 25 tracks for 75 minutes of music: with "Wild Life" by Donald Byrd, "Keep On" by Tavares, "Say You Will" by Eddie Henderson, "Cutie Pie" by Dayton, "Breakdown" by Brass Construction, "We've Got Love Together" by Pyrymyd, "Keep Dancing" by Perry & Sanlin, "Rise" by Rene & Angela, "Feelin' Lucky Lately" by High Fashion and much more.

✨✧ Billy HarperLive On Tour In The Far East Vol 1 ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the best Billy Harper work of the past decade or two – a 3 volume series of live performances, all recorded in the Far East in 1991! This first volume features Billy recorded in Korea, with a group that includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Francesca Tanksley on piano, Louis Spears on bass, and Newman Baker on drums – stretching out on long tunes that recall the brilliance of Harper's incredible Japanese recordings of the 70s – a masterful blend of searching and soulfulness! Titles include "I Do Believe", "If One Could Only See", "Croquet Ballet", and "Insight". CD

✨✧ Joe HendersonOur Thing ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and Pete La Roca. The track "Pedro's Time" reflects Joe's fascination with Latin-flavored pieces (as evidenced by Joe's previous effort Page One, and his work on Dorham's Una Mas), while pieces like "Teeter Totter", "Our Thing" and "Back Road" play with time and structure in subtle ways. CD includes a bonus alternate take of "Teeter Totter (alternate take)". CD

✨✧ Jimmy SmithSoftly As A Summer Breeze (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Herbie HancockSextant ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come! At the height of his 70s powers, Herbie really takes off into space with this set – moving away from more commercial music, and hitting a groove that's totally righteous, totally electric, and completely mindblowing! The album's got a bit of a Headhunters vibe, but it also veers off into some very wild analogue electronics too – a mix of Fender Rhodes, clavinet, melotron, and echoplex processing – augmented by additional work on Arp from Patrick Gleeson. Other players on the set include Bennie Maupin on reeds, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Buster Williams on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – and the great Buck Clarke rounds out the combo on percussion. The album only features three long tracks – "Rain Dance", "Hidden Shadows", and "Hornets" – but all of them are killers! CD

Andrew HillComplete Blue Note Andrew Hill Sessions 1963 to 1966 (7CD set) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, 1960s. Used 7CD ... $199.99
Remarkable modern jazz, from one of the most unique voices in the genre! Hill's piano work and compositions fall into a category of their own, working outside the limits of predominant bop sound, but not quite falling into the world of free jazz that rules the avant scene. This outstanding Mosaic box collects his seminal 60s recordings, comprising of the LPs Black Fire, Smokestack, Judgment, Point Of Departure, Andrew!, One For One, and Compulsion, plus plenty of alternate takes and some material that was issued under Sam Rivers name on the LP Involution. Sidemen include Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Kenny Dorham, Eric Dolphy, John Gilmore, Freddie Hubbard, Sam Rivers, Richard Davis, Cecil McBee, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams and Joe Chambers. There's 52 tracks in all, spread out over 7 CDs, with titles that include "Land Of Nod", "Black Fire", "McNeil Island", "Tired Trade",Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Smokestack", "Ode To Von", "The Day After", "Verne", "Not So", "Flea Flop", "Siete Ocho", "Yokada, Yokada", "Reconciliation", "New Monastary", "Flight 19", "Spectrum", "Symmetry", "The Griots", "Duplicity", "Le Serpenmt Qui Danse", "Euterpe", "Erato", "Roots 'n Herbs", "Compulsion", "Premonition", "Violence" and "Desire".

✨✧ Freddie HubbardStraight Life ... CD
CTI, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing second CTI set from Freddie Hubbard – one that takes off nicely from Red Clay territory, and starts to hit an even funkier mode! The tracks here are all relatively long, with a huge amount of solo space for Freddie on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, George Benson on guitar, and Herbie Hancock on piano. The title track "Straight Life" has a style that's quite searing and righteous at points – almost some of Freddie's boldest playing on record from the time. It's followed by an excellent take on Weldon Irvine's "Mr Clean" – one that's rompingly funky while still as righteous as the work on side long title track – played with some great electric piano from Herbie and sweet guitar lines from Benson. The set closes with a mellow take on "Here's That Rainy Day", played in a way that reminds us of Hubbard's more lyrical style – but still with plenty of CTI 70s overtones. CD
