Eddie HendersonSo What ... CD
Columbia/Eighty Eights, 2002. Used ... $5.99
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.

✨✧ Eddie HendersonCollective Portrait ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2015. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully fluid work from the great Eddie Henderson – a record that's wrapped up in that beautiful glow and searching, soulful energy that only seems to get better and better over the years! The record's got some great partners on board – including George Cables on piano and some especially great Fender Rhodes – the latter of which really reopens the glow in Henderson's music from years past, but with a much different vibe than the 70s. Gary Bartz also plays alto on most of the record – sounding wonderful as he opens up and soars – and the rest of the group features Doug Weiss on bass and Carl Allen on drums – both players who can be tight, but loose in all the right ways. Henderson's trumpet and flugelhorn lead with a veteran's wisdom, but youthful energy – and the pieces include takes on his own classic "Sunburst" and "Dreams", Cables's "Morning Song" and "Beyond Forever", plus "You Know I Care", "First Light", "Together", "Ginger Bread Boy", "Spring" and "Zoltan" – the last of which is taken in the best vintage Woody Shaw spirit!

✨✧ Eddie HendersonDark Shadows ... CD
Milestone, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dark Shadows, but plenty of warm tones too – thanks to some great vibes from Joe Locke, whose work here is a wonderful accompaniment to the trumpet of Eddie Henderson! The album's got an easygoing vibe, but a deeply soulful feel – the kind of blocky, slow-building grooves that Henderson really picked up strongly in the later years of his career – handled with a new level of sensitivity, but also all the bold power of his earlier years. Other players are great too – Kevin Hayes on piano and Fender Rhodes, Lewis Nash on drums, and Ed Howard on bass – and Lee Menzies sings on the track "Dawning Dance", a great spiritual-styled number. Other cuts include "Goodbye", "19th Street", "El Gaucho", "A Certain Vibe", "Lament For Booker", "The Water Is Wide", and "Cerulean Blue". CD

✨✧ Eddie HendersonInspiration ... CD
Milestone, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully understated set from Eddie Henderson – one of those great little albums that really opens up the more we give it a listen – and a great reminder that Eddie's got so many gems nestled in his catalog, especially in later years like this! There's a mix of modes going on here – some ballad tracks that are almost Miles Davis-like, in that style that Henderson was moving towards during these years – but there's also some great numbers that get more modal and soulful, of the style of his Steeplechase recordings, with a warmly lyrical vibe. The group's a great part of the sound here – with Kevin Hays on piano, Joe Locke on vibes, Ed Howard on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – and Grover Washington adds some great soprano sax on two numbers too. Titles include "Little B's Poem", "Peresina", "Jinriksha", "I Remember Clifford", "Phantoms", and "Oliloqui Valley". 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

Joe HendersonOur Thing (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $5.99
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

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Stanley CowellNew World ... CD
Galaxy (Japan), 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A surprisingly righteous little album from Stanley Cowell – a set cut after his more famous music for the Strata East label, but one that still hangs onto a similar vibe! The style's a bit tighter than before, but still filled with soul and spirit – thanks to a lineup that includes Julian Priester on trombone, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and Pat Patrick on reeds – making a key appearance here away from the Sun Ra Arkestra! Cowell plays both piano and keyboards, and the record has a bit of strings, and a bit of vocals – but all used tastefully, in ways that further enforce the depth of the tunes. Tracks include "El Space-O", "Ask Him", "Island Of Haitoo", and "I'm Tryin To Find A Way". CD

✨✧ Billy HarperLive On Tour In The Far East Vol 2 ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1991. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ CookersCast The First Stone ... CD
Plus Loin (France), 2010. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ Billy HarperSoul Of An Angel ... CD
Metropolitan, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic recent album by Billy Harper – with a sense of greatness, majesty, and spirituality to rival his best 70s work! The album's got Harper working in a very classic mode – with a soulful quartet that features his yearning searching tenor blowing out over backing by piano, bass, and drums. Eddie Henderson adds some trumpet on a few tracks – but the main action is up to Billy, who never falters in his creativity, and is as nimble as ever when it comes to working out his unique spiritual jazz vision. Titles include the sublime "Soul of An Angel", plus "Thine Is The Glory", "Credence", and "Was It Here . . . Is It There?". CD

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonLittle B's Poem – Live At EJ's ... CD
Movie Play (Portugal), 1980. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely-extended live set from Bobby Hutcherson – one that's filled with long tracks that really let him stretch out on his solos! The group's a quartet – with Bobby on vibes, William Henderson on piano, Heshima Williams on bass, and Eddie Moore on drums – rhythm players we've never heard before, but who do a decent job here of matching Hutcherson's free-flowing sound! There's a warmly chromatic sound to the set – and the recording's a nice contrast to Bobby's studio sides for Columbia in the late 70s – almost a precursor to the solid work to come on the Landmark label. Titles include "Dolphin Dance", "In Your Own Sweet Way", "Little B's Poem", "Body & Soul", "Highway One", "All Of You", and "With A Song In My Heart". 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".

Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1982. Used ... $11.99
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

✨✧ Freddie HubbardRed Clay (with bonus track) ... CD
CTI/Epic, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 HubbardBundle Of Joy/Super Blue/Love Connection ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1977/1978/1979. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A triple-header from Freddie Hubbard – three late 70s albums together in a single set! Bundle Of Joy is a bundle of soul from Freddie Hubbard – one that has him blowing beautifully over full arrangements from Bert DeCoteux – the 70s super-soul maestro who really brings a new sound to Hubbard's music! The style's a bit smoother than other Freddie albums of the time, but still really great – a wonderful plenty of his well-timed, well-punctuated work on trumpet with warm grooves supplied by Bert – filled with instrumentation that includes David T Walker on guitar, Ernie Watts on sax and flute, Azar Lawrence on tenor, David Garfield on keyboards, and even Dorothy Ashby on flute. Titles include "Portrait Of Jenny", "Rainy Day Song", "Bundle Of Joy", "From Now On", "From Behind", and "Rahsaan". Super Blue is 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". Love Connection has Freddie Hubbard working with arranger Claus Ogerman on some expansive tracks that go beyond his earlier work in the decade – sometimes blowing mellow notes over larger orchestrations, other times working in a surprisingly lean groove that has some really soulful touches! The approach shifts from track to track, but all titles are long, and the overall effect is really great. Al Jarreau guests on a sweet vocal version of "Little Sunflower", and other players on the set include Joe Farrell and Tom Scott on reeds, and Chick Corea, who plays most of the keys on the set. Titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "This Dream", "Brigitte", and "The Love Connection". CD
