✨✧ Eddie HendersonManhattan In Blue ... CD
Video Arts (Japan), 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the classiest sets we've ever heard from trumpeter Eddie Henderson – at least in his later years – and a deeply thoughtful album that's filled with surprises! Eddie's moving past just his strong ability to blow here – and he's really working in a unified group formation that has bold arrangements really adding a lot of spirit to the set. Players are all great – and include Joe Locke on vibes, Lewis Nash on drums, Kevin Hayes on piano, Ed Howard on bass, and Grover Washington on soprano sax – making a rare late appearance here. The best tunes have a flowing, fluid quality that almost recalls some of the best moments on 60s Blue Note that mixed hardbop, modern, and exotic strands in jazz – but there's also a sense here that's got some of the composure of other strong New York sets for the Japanese market as well. Tunes are especially well-chosen – and the album features versions of Billy Harper's "If One Could Only See", Bobby Hutcherson's "Little B's Poem", Kenny Barron's "Phantoms", Joe Henderson's "Jinrikisya", and Herbie Hancock's "Oliloqui Valley".

✨✧ Eddie HendersonSo What ... CD
Columbia/Eighty Eights, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful Eddie Henderson albums we've heard in years – a richly modal session with lots of classic influences, recorded beautifully, and with a feel that will make it a real standout! The set list includes some killer jazz standards – like Wayne Shorter's "Prince Of Darkness" and "Footprints", Miles Davis' "So What" and "All Blues", and Monk's "Well You Needn't" and "Round Midnight" – not to mention great versions of "Green Dolphin Street", and "Old Folks". And even though the tunes are classics, they're played with the fresh modernism of the mid 60s Miles Davis quintet – a style that's got angular edges, but also some deeply soulful moments – played with elegance by a group that includes Bob Berg on tenor, Dave Kikoshi on piano, Ed Howard on bass, and Billy Hart and Victor Lewis on drums.

Joe HendersonOur Thing ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $3.99
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

CookersTime & Time Again ... CD
Motema, 2014. Used ... $7.99
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".

✨✧ Herbie HancockSextant (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1973. Used ... $6.99
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

✨✧ John Hicks Legacy BandMind Wine – The Music Of John Hicks ... CD
Savant, 2008. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful testament to the soul and sensitivity of the music of John Hicks – a loving tribute to the late, great pianist – handled here by some of his closest jazz associates! Even without Hicks' compositions, the group would be great enough – but given that John's musical legacy lives on in the songs, there's a deeper sense of feeling here that really unites the music – a rich extension of that flowing, spiritual side of his music that first flowered most strongly in the 70s, then continued to please us for years in a series of excellent later albums. Elis Wood-Hicks delivers some great work on flute throughout the set – and other players include Craig Handy on tenor and soprano, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and core rhythm from Larry Willis on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Steve Williams on drums. Willis' later tones on the keys are a wonderful complement to Hicks' tunes, and Lundy's bass is always an element that makes a set great – and continues that legacy here. Titles include "Mind Wine", "After The Morning", "Blues In The Pocket", "Single Petal Of A Rose","Avotcja", and "Yemenja". CD

✨✧ CookersCall Of The Wild & Peaceful Heart ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the boldest album so far from The Cookers – a tremendous assemblage of legendary jazz talent, working together as a perfect unit on this recording! There's a sharpness and sense of unity that really holds the record together – part of which comes from the arrangements, by Billy Harper or trumpeter David Weiss – the only slightly younger member of the group, and a great guiding voice to the project. Speaking of voices, Billy Harper's is loud and proud – that soaring, spiritual tenor that we love so much – especially on the group's readings of his compositions – and in addition to Harper and Weiss, other group members include Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Donald Harrison on alto, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. There's a balance of darkness and light that really makes the album sparkle – and titles include "Call Of The Wild & Peaceful Heart", "Beyond Forever", "Third Phase", "Teule's Redemption", "Blackfoot", "Thy Will Be Done", and "Oceans Of Time".

✨✧ CookersWarriors ... CD
JLP, 2010. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from a crack group of jazz legends, together billed as The Cookers – Billy Harper on tenor, Eddie Henderson and David Weiss on trumpet, Craig Handy on alto & flute, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – kind of a dream lineup, working here with the same sort of spiritual energy you'd expect from a 70s session of this nature! The music is filled with love and joy – and has just the right sort of groove to really make the soloists take off – and titles include Cables's "Spookarella" and "Sweet Rita Suite Part 2: Her Soul", Harper's "Priestess" and Capra Black", McBee's "Close To You Alone", "Ladybugg" and "U Phoria", and an great opening take on Freddie Hubbard's "The Core".

✨✧ Steve DavisSay When ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2015. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A knockout from Steve Davis – one of the best trombone players in modern jazz – working here with an exceptionally impressive group of players! The legendary Harold Mabern is on piano, and Eddie Henderson plays trumpet – along with the always impressive Eric Alexander on tenor, Nat Reeves on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums. A lot of the session is played very energetically, which we love – and it's balanced by some more lyrical, melodic material, too. It includes some great takes on the JJ Johnson compositions "Pinnacles", "Shortcake", "Lament", "Say When", "Kenya" and Shutterbug" – Johnson being one of Davis's heroes – and he does a terrific job of honoring his legacy, while giving the material a fresh feel. Also includes a take on Coltrane's "Village Blues", the freshest version of "When The Saints Go Marching In" we've heard in years (really!!), "There Will Never Be Another You" and "What Is This Thing Called Love".

✨✧ 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".

Blue Note (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first volume in this totally excellent series which digs out rare soul and fusion cuts from the Capitol/EMI catalog from the 70s. There's loads of swirling jazzy tracks, like "Music is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz and "Peace of Mind" by Rance Allen (both of which have stellar production by Larry Mizell), "Losalamitos Latinfunklovesong" by Gene Harris, "About Love" by Ben Sidran, "Inside You" by Eddie Henderson, "The Genie" by Bobby Lyle, and "Sky Islands" by Caldera. There's also a bunch of great modern soul tracks, like "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "Annie Mae" by Natalie Cole, "While I'm Alone" by Maze, "Dindi" by Janet Lawson, and the rare "She's My Summer Breeze" by the Reflections, which is worth the price of the CD alone!

✨✧ CookersBelieve ... CD
Motema, 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great one from this all-star group – an incredibly righteous combo that's given Billy Harper one of his best chances to play in years! As with the previous album by The Cookers, the Harper influence really runs strong – not just in the use of some of his great tracks in the performance, but also in the way the tunes build and work together – that bold, powerful energy that Billy first unleashed on the world in the 70s – driven to new heights here by a lineup that also includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Craig Handy on alto sax, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums! But key thanks should also go to trumpeter David Weiss – also in the group, and producer for the record – a great talent for getting these guys to work together so well. Titles include tunes by McBee, Cables, and Hart as well – with tracks that include "Ebony Moonbeams", "Believe For It Is True", "Free For All", "Quest", "But He Knows", "Tight Squeeze", and "Naaj".

Plus Loin (France), 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant set from The Cookers – a combo that includes the mighty Billy Harper on tenor sax, and who step out here with a soaringly brilliant sound that recalls some of Harper's best material in recent years! Yet Billy's only the tip of the iceberg, as all players are great – truly the cookers promised by the name– including Eddie Henderson and David Weiss on trumpets, Craig Handy on alto sax, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – plus some key guest work from Azar Lawrence on tenor and soprano sax too! The rhythms are perfect for the record – modally comping, with just the right sort of searching energy to inspire the most spiritual performances from the players – and titles include great versions of Billy Harper's "Cast The First Stone", "Croquet Ballet", and "The Seventh Day", – plus "Think On Me", "Peacemaker", "The Chief", and "Looking For The Light".

Mingus Music/Sunnyside, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Freddie HubbardRed Clay (with bonus track) ... CD
CTI/Epic, 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Amazing work from Freddie Hubbard – one of his best albums ever! The title cut's a classic, but all cuts on the album are great – and really set a whole new standard for soul jazz in the 70s! Unlike the freer runs of Miles Davis, Freddie takes things into territory here that's open, yet tightly controlled – a really soulful, spiritual vibe that's quite different than any of his later commercial work – or his hardbop of the decade before! The lineup includes Joe Henderson on tenor and Herbie Hancock on piano – and even back in the 80's, when everyone was going purist again, and was pretending they didn't like 70's electric jazz at all, they still claimed that this was a great jazz record, and one of the only good ones for CTI. We know better now, of course, and know that there were loads of great CTI sessions – but that doesn't stop this from being one of the best! Titles include "Red Clay", "Delphia", "Suite Sioux", and "The Intrepid Fox". This CD includes a bonus 18 minute live version of "Red Clay", too! CD

Freddie HubbardSuper Blue ... CD
Columbia/Mosaic, 1978. Used ... $19.99
A sweet late 70s set from Freddie Hubbard – a slight move away from some of his highly-electric sides of the CTI years, yet one that still has some of the most soulful qualities of that work! Freddie's trumpet has a nicely spacious quality throughout – one that's flowing, and almost glowing at time – cascading along with qualities you might be more likely to hear from Art Farmer on some of the gentler numbers, yet really bursting out with that old Hubbard dynamism on the rest. Other players include Joe Henderson on tenor, Hubert Laws on flute, Kenny Barron on piano and keyboards, Ron Carter on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – and George Benson also guests on guitar on one number too. A good number of the titles are originals, and tracks include "Super Blue", "To Her Ladyship", "Take It To The Ozone", "The Gospel Truth", and "Theme For Kareem". CD also features 3 bonus alternate takes! CD

Joe ZawinulRise & Fall Of The Third Stream/Money In The Pocket ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1966/1968. Used ... $7.99
2 excellent and hard to get Atlantic 60s LPs by Zawinul on one disc. Although Joe first came to big fame in the US as a funky vamper and soloist behind Cannonball Adderley's big group of the 60s, his early album as a leader has a much more mature sound than that funky work with Cannon – and it rightly earns the "third stream" tag in the title through the use of an enlarged ensemble that includes cello and viola, in addition to the core group of soulful players like Jimmy Owens, Richard Davis, and Freddie Waits. William Fischer's also on the record on tenor, and many of the tracks are his own compositions, with that kind of weird off-kilter, slightly serious approach he used on other Atlantic/Vortex sessions at the time. The mix of soul and serious scoring is actually a pretty darn compelling blend – as you'll hear on tracks like "Lord, Lord, Lord", "Soul Of A Village", and "The 5th Canto". And the second LP of the set, Money In The Pocket may arguably be the best solo record that Joe Zawinul ever cut – and one of the few to really show him working in the sound that he had when with Cannonball Adderley's famous 60s combo! The record features Joe on piano, in groups made up of soul jazz luminaries like Blue Mitchell, Joe Henderson, Sam Jones, Clifford Jordan, and Louis Hayes. Tracks are short and groovy – with a bit of a Blue Note kick to them. Titles include "If", "Midnight Mood", "Some More Of Dat", "Sharon's Waltz", and "Del Sasser". CD

✨✧ Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unique album for Chaka Khan – one in which she teams up with a host of jazz artists to craft a classic-styled set of vocals! Given that Chaka was at the height of her 80s groove solo career at the time of this one, the move is a surprising one – but also a great chance for Chaka to show that she has a lot more to offer than just pop chops, as she sounds pretty darn great scatting on these classic jazz numbers. And as proof that the set was definitely a serious jazz effort, Chaka's got a great lineup on the album – a group that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, Chick Corea on piano, and Lenny White on drums. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "All Of Me", "Take The A Train", "Hire Wire", "The Aerialist", and "I Hear Music". Expanded CD features an alternate of "All Of Me" and the track "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" – as well as good notes and an interview. CD

A classic Blue Note groover – the funkiest album by Duke Pearson, and a killer batch of piano-heavy soul jazz tunes! Duke really blew out the box for this one – not only coming up with a great batch of original tunes, and playing them with an incredibly soulful touch – but also working with a top-shelf batch of players that includes Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, and James Spaulding! The great Mickey Roker is on drums, playing away with a nice scatter-shot modal mode that grooves in all the right parts – and titles include "Big Bertha", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Sudel", "Ready Rudy?", and "Empathy".

✨✧ Phil RanelinClose Encounter Of The Very Best Kind ... CD
Life Force Jazz, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost chapter in the career of trombonist Phil Ranelin – a player who's best known to most of us for his classic 70s recordings on the Tribe label, and for his recent work and remix projects! This set is a quite different side of Phil than we've ever heard – and a great one too, as it captures Ranelin in a straighter jazz setting – working in a west coast soul jazz mode, one that features longer tracks grooving out with a sweetly swinging style, and some great solo work as well. The overall vibe is less righteous overall than Ranelin's Tribe work, but the sound is no less soulful – as a great group that includes Eric Reed and Steve Turre help Ranelin work nicely through a set of tracks that includes the originals "Forever Yours", "A Close Encounter", "Full Moon", and "You Know What I Mean" – plus versions of Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower" and Joe Henderson's "Recorda-Me".
