✨✧ Eddie HendersonInspiration ... CD
Milestone, 1994. Used ... 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

Joe HendersonOur Thing ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $4.99
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

Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic/Dark Of Light ... CD
Sequel (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $14.99
Spiritual soul jazz madness! This CD brings together Norman Connors first two LPs for the Cobblestone/Buddah label, and they're both soulful jazzy albums with a far-reaching sound that's quite different than his later albums. The players on the recrds are virtually a who's who of early 70s soul jazz – including Herbie Hancock, Airto, Eddie Henderson, Carlos Garnett, Cecil McBee, and Gary Bartz. There's a total of 10 tracks in all – and titles include "Black Lightnin", "Song For Rosa", "Twilight Zone", "Dark Of Light", and "Dance Of Magic". Great stuff, with a real Strata East vibe! CD

Mingus Big BandLive In Tokyo At The Blue Note 2005 ... CD
Mingus Music/Sunnyside, 2005. Used ... $7.99
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". CD

✨✧ Herbie HancockHerbie Hancock Septet – Live At The Boston Jazz Workshop ... CD
Hi Hat, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Pharoah SandersJourney To The One ... CD
Bellaphon (Germany), 1980. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ VariousBlue Break Beats 2 ... CD
Blue Note, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collection of grooves that first came to light in the 90s – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the title, the music here is very strongly oriented in the mode of "breaks", or tracks that were sampled for later hip hop and club recordings – classic jazz tunes from the glory days of Blue Note that have gone onto live again, thanks to the keen ears and inventive work of more contemporary DJs and producers. After all these years, The Blue Breakbeats series still stands as one of the best illustrations of the funkier side of the label – and titles on this second volume include "Orange Peel" by Reuben Wilson, "Higga Boom" by Gene Harris, "Jasper Country Man" by Bobby Humphrey, "Good Humor Man" by Blue Mitchell, "Ain't It Funky Now" by Grant Green, "The Kumquat Kids" by Eddie Henderson, "The Phantom" by Duke Pearson, "Spinning Wheel" by Lonnie Smith, "Ummh" by Bobby Hutcherson, "The Worm" by Jimmy McGriff, "The Caterpiller" by Lou Donaldson, "Pot Belly" by Lou Donaldson, "Beale Street" by Donald Byrd, "Viva Tirado" by Gerald Wilson, and "Street Lady" by Donald Byrd.

✨✧ Stanley CowellSetup ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant sextet session from Stanley Cowell – one of his few larger group sessions of the time, done during a period when he was recording almost exclusively in trio format! The album features a well-crafted sextet with lots of nice edges – bringing together Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Rick Margitza on tenor, Dick Griffin on trombone, Peter Washington on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – all to shade and color Cowell's rich piano work and fresh compositions for the set. There's a deeply soulful feel to the record that's quite wonderful – a new exploration of Cowell's inspirations from the 70s, taken to some very tight territory here – but never with any sense of slickness at all. Titles include the excellent "Bright Passion", plus "Departure", "Setup", "Varions", "Bip Bip Bam" and "Sendai Sendoff". CD

✨✧ VariousBest Of Newport '57 ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The full scope of Verve's massive recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – served up in a 2CD set that includes many lesser-known numbers! The set certainly features some of the bigger name acts from Newport who've filled Verve's catalog over the years – Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and others – but it also features some of the younger, hipper talents that hit the Newport stage that year – as well as some of the older trad players who were being re-exposed to a younger audience at the festival too! 2CD set features 24 tracks in all – some on CD for the first time – including "I Never Knew" by Mat Mathews, "Blue Lou" by Leon Sash, "Love Is Here To Stay" by Carmen McRae, "Blues For Louis" by Bobby Henderson, "Bourbon Street Parade" by George Lewis, "Between Me & Myself" by Toshiko Akioshi, "Love For Sale" by Gigi Gryce & Donald Byrd, "Nona's Blues" by Cecil Taylor, "There Will Never Be Another You" by Eddie Costa, "Lady Sings The Blues" by Billie Holiday, "S Wonderful" by Don Elliott, "I Got Rhythm" by Teddy Wilson, and "Boogie Woogie" by Jimmy Rushing.

Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson & Bobby HutchersonKeystone Bop Vol 1 – Sunday Night ... CD
Prestige, 1981. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Keystone bop indeed – a smoking little set from Freddie Hubbard, recorded during his great back-to-basics years of the early 80s! The tracks here are all quite long, and informed by a strong sense of hardbop – but they also open up with some sharper, more modern moments at times – of the sort that keenly reflect Freddie's best roots during his early years at Blue Note. The other players here are all quite strong – especially well-matched for the energy of such a record – with Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Joe Henderson on tenor, plus rhythm from Billy Childs on piano, Larry Klein on bass, and Steve Houghton on drums. The CD presents all tracks in long, unedited takes – and this Sunday Night volume features 5 tracks that include "Birdlike", "The Littlest One Of All", "The Intrepid Fox", "Sky Dive", and "Body & Soul".

✨✧ Duke PearsonSweet Honey Bee ... CD
Blue Note, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Andrew HillComplete Blue Note Andrew Hill Sessions 1963 to 1966 (7CD set) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, 1960s. Used 7CD ... Out Of Stock
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". CD
(Out of print hand-numbered limited edition pressing. Includes original box, book and all CDs in their cases! Box and book have some light rippling and stains from light water damage, but not too bad overall.)
