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

✨✧ Joshua AbramsSimultonality ... LP
Eremite, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Josh Abrams just keeps on getting better and better as the years go on – to the point where he's a leader who's emerging with one of the proudest, most righteous visions in jazz! Abrams has played for years in the company of others – and his contributions have always impressed us – but once he started to step into the spotlight as a leader, his voice has just continued to grow – where an album like this has Josh bringing together a really surprising array of talents from the Chicago scene, and creating a spiritual masterpiece that may well rival older classics on Impulse Records! Many of the tracks have a modal approach, which Josh drives along beautifully with his bass – and Abrams also plays guimbri and a small harp too – in a group that features Ari Brown on tenor, Emmett Kelly on guitar, Frank Rosaly on drums and percussion, Mikel Avery on drums, Lisa Alvarado on harmonium and percussion, and Ben Boye on the wonderfully cool chromatic electric autoharp! Titles include "Sideways Fall", "St Cloud", "Maroon Dune", "Ophiuchs", and "2128 1/2". LP, Vinyl record album
(In a screenprinted sleeve!)

✨✧ Byron Morris & Gerald WiseUnity ... LP
EPI/Eremite, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous albums from the DC scene of the late 60s – the initial outing of the mighty reedman Byron Morris – who'd also give us great albums to come with his Unity group in the 70s! This album's maybe even more spiritual and outside than some of that later work – informed heavily by both the Coltrane generation, and the style of the New York underground, ala ESP Records – as each side of the album features one long track, with very freewheeling, soulful improvisation from the group! Lancaster plays alto and soprano sax, and co-leader Gerald Wise plays trumpet – in a group that also includes a young Byard Lancaster on flute, soprano, drumpet, and drums – plus Vins Johnson on baritone and tenor, Freddie Williams on bass, Eric Gravatt on percussion, Abu Richard Sharrieff on percussion and voice, and Keon Speller on amplified conga and special effects! There's a huge amount going on in the space of each track – almost the creative depth of the early AACM –- and titles include "Black Awareness" and "JWM + 53". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful reissue pressing – with great mastering, and heavy vinyl and cover! Also includes a bonus insert, with notes by Morris.)
