Emil RichardsSpirit of 1976 ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Excellent groovy jazz from the great Emil Richards! The legendary LA vibist is caught live at Donte's – and is playing with Dave Makay on piano and percussion, as well as a bunch of other LA hipsters. The general groove is more jazz oriented than Emil's other records, but still very nice. Titles include "One Tooth Grin", "Spirit Of 1976", "Peek A Boo", "All Blue", and "10 to 5". LP, Vinyl record album

Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big BandMarch Of The Tadpoles (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
It's hard to get at the brilliance of the 70s albums from Toshiko Akiyoshi and Lew Tabackin in words – but we'll try just a bit! The records are almost an anomaly – creative big band records at a time when most folks were leaving the format behind – put together by a duo who weren't really stars in the years before, at least on the American market – but who really found a way to shine in this new setting! Toshiko composed and arranged all the material – opening up a whole new depth in her songwriting – and she also delivers superb piano solos that have the dexterity of her earlier work, but also a new level of complexity too. Tabackin is wonderful as well – fantastic on flute and tenor – and also providing strong inspiration to reed soloists Dick Spencer and Gary Foster too. Emil Richards does a nice percussion solo on one track – and titles include "Notorious Tourist From East", "Deracinated Flower", "Yellow Is Mellow", and "Mobile". CD

Paul HornJazz Years (Columbia Recordings) ... CD
Black Sun, Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
A much-needed look at the early jazz years of Paul Horn – featuring tracks recorded for 3 different Columbia albums of the early 60s – all of them great! At the time, Horn had a free-thinking sound that was one of the most lyrical in US jazz – working on alto and flute with a groove that really presaged the modal sound to come on the European scene – making equal use of bossa, exotic, and soul jazz rhythms – and working out a sound that was completely sublime! The set features Horn working with some great groups that include Emil Richards on vibes throughout – plus either Paul Moer or Victor Feldman on piano, and a variety of drummers and bass players that groove with a sweet west coast vibe! Tracks are from the albums Sound Of Paul Horn, Profile Of A Jazz Musician, and Impressions Of Cleopatra – and the CD features 16 titles that include "Benny's Buns", "Love & Hate", "Cleopatra's Palace Music", "Lazy Afternoon", "Anthony & Cleopatra Theme", "Yazz Per Favore", "Short Politician", and "Count Your Change".

Paul HornSound Of Paul Horn ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Amazing early work from Paul Horn – recorded way before he got all noodly, and started walking around in pyramids and stuff! The album captures Horn at the height of his early brilliance – interested in world rhythms, especially Indian, and showing a real penchant for a modal groove. He's working here on alto and flute, and grooving incredibly well with a group that includes Paul Moer on piano, Emil Richards on vibes, and the great Jimmy Bond on bass – all pulsating with a great deal of energy, and creating these catchy little tunes that dip, turn, dip, and allow Horn to really take off on his solos. A brilliant set throughout – with tracks that include "Benny's Buns", "Yazz Per Favore", "Mirage For Miles", "Moer Or Less", "Blue On Blue", and "Short Politician". LP, Vinyl record album

Shorty RogersJazz Waltz ... LP
Reprise, 1961. Sealed ... $19.99
Don't think "waltz music", think "modal jazz" – because the version of jazz waltz that Shorty Rogers serves up here is a great precursor to the great grooves to come on the European scene – especially the work from the artists at MPS Records! Tunes all have this great rhythmic pulse – a way of leaping into a groove that has the piano and bass dancing together wonderfully – often with some cool vibes from Emil Richards, and loads of great reed lines from Bud Shank and Paul Horn! Some tracks feature a small combo, some feature a larger group – and the whole thing is wonderful – with energy that almost rivals the Clarke Boland Big Band with Gigi Campi. Titles include "Be As Children", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Jazz Waltz", "Terrence's Farewell", and "A Taste Of Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Scott & The California DreamersHoneysuckle Breeze ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1967. Used ... $22.99
A beautifully groovy album from the early days of one of our favorite reed players! Tom Scott's tenor, alto and soprano saxes, plus some flute, are set amidst a very groovy group that includes percussion, guitar, keyboards, sitar, and even some occasional vocalizing – for a sound that's got a solid jazz base, but lots of groovy Now Sound flourishes! Scott's searing solos rip through the whole thing with a nice cool sound – an uncommonly sunny, beautifully grooving psych era Impulse set that's as sweet as can be! Scott's California Dreamers and other personnel include sitar player Bill Plummer, bass player Carol Kaye, percussionist Emil Richards, guitarist Glen Campbell and others – and the album's filled with great cuts like "Honeysuckle Breeze", "Naima", "Today", "North", "Blues For Hari", and "Deliver Me". Nice! CD

George ShearingOn The Sunny Side Of The Strip ... LP
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Sunny and swinging – an overlooked Capitol Records treasure from George Shearing – and one with a group that really helped set the sound of groovy jazz in the 60s! The players here are all wonderful – Emil Richards on vibes, Toots Thielemans on guitar, and Al McKibbon on bass – plus some guest congas from Armando Peraza – an artist we mostly know from Cal Tjader's Latin records! With Richards' vibes, the record really has a great sound – deep-toned, with plenty of jazz and Latin inflections – very similar to the territory that Tjader was exploring in the late 50s. And let's not forget George, too – as his piano has that nicely-blocked feel that really fits the sublime rhythms of the tunes. Titles include "Mambo Inn", "Jordu", "Confirmation", "Some Other Spring", "Drume Negrita", and "Bernie's Tune". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousWest Meets East – Indian Music & Its Influence On The West (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great look at the surprisingly strong influence of Indian music on Western styles in the postwar years – and a package that digs really deeply, and offers up way more than just a few classic rockers picking up a sitar! Instead, the whole thing starts years before The Beatles and contemporaries were touting the qualities of Indian music – and begins in the 50s, when modal rhythms had started to hold sway on a generation of jazz musicians, and modern composers – in part because key Indian music recordings were being issued overseas in the US too! The package spans about a decade of recordings, and interweaves jazz, classical, exotica, and other styles with original recordings of the musical styles – with a great lineup of tracks that brings together Sun Ra, Joe Harriott, Eric Doplhy, Ustad Vilayat Khan, Ravi Shankar, John Coltrane, Ali Akbar Khan, Victor Felman, Emil Richards, Bela Bartok, Les Baxter, Martin Denny, Brian Easdale, Satyajit RaySabicas, Yusef Lateef, and others!
