Juma Sultan's Aboriginal Music SocietyFather Of Origin (2LP & CD box set) ... LP
Eremite, 1971. New Copy 2LP/CD/Book ... $114.99 120.00
Amazing music throughout – all recorded under the leadership of bassist Juma Sultan! The package is quite unique – 2LPs worth of music, with a full fresh set of music on an additional CD – all collected in a very heavy box, with an oversized booklet too! The sounds are quite free throughout, but also occasionally introspective, in a beautiful spiritual jazz mode – with echoes of early 70s Impulse Records, mixed with some of the more progressive sides of the avant scene on the east coast at the time! LP 1 features the extended "Fan Dance" – performed by a group that includes Gene Dinwiddie on saxes and flute, Earl Cross on trumpet, Ralph Walsh on guitar, Phil Wilson on drums, and Ali Abuwi on great percussion – plus the shorter "Ode To A Gypsy Son", done by a trio with Abuwi, Sultan, and Earl Cross – who handles a E flat mellophone! LP 2 features unstructured private recordings by a very hip trio – Abuwi on percussion, Sultan on bass, percussion, and alto sax – and an early appearance by Frank Lowe on tenor! The CD features two untitled collective improvisations – with Abuwi on percussion, Sultan on bass and percussion, Abdul Wadud on cello, Phil Wilson on drums, Charles Bobo Shaw on perucssion, Julius Helphill on alto, Gene Dinwiddie on flute, and Rod Hicks on bass. LP, Vinyl record album
(Two LPs, a CD, and a 28 page 12x12 book – damn expensive, we know – but ultra-limited, and very nicely put together!)

✨✧ Jeff ParkerSlight Freedom ... LP
Eremite, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic solo sounds from guitarist Jeff Parker – a set of recordings that were all done live, with no overdubs at all – but which really show a complex approach to his overall sound! Parker's almost in some of the more abstract territory here as on some of his Chicago Underground Duo recordings – but he's also maybe a bit more tuneful, while also more introspective – showing us a personal, human side of his music that's extremely moving – and which really comes as quite a surprise, compared to some of his other records. Some numbers almost have a Jim Hall-like fragility, while other points are more creatively textural – and the whole thing is really wonderful, and represents a whole new step for Parker – a musician who's already been blowing our mind for about 20 years. Titles include "Super Rich Kids", "Slight Freedom", "Mainz", and a beautiful take on "Lush Life". LP, Vinyl record album
