Juma Sultan's Aboriginal Music SocietyFather Of Origin (2LP & CD box set) ... LP
Eremite, 1971. New Copy 2LP/CD/Book ... $99.99 120.00
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!)

✨✧ Sunny MurrayPerles Noires Vol 1 ... CD
Eremite, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
Magical work on drums from Sunny Murray – a later recording done with reedman Sabir Mateen – plus a few surprise guests on some of the tracks in the set! Murray's drums have all the power and presence we remember from years back – dimmed slightly with age, but given a lot more feeling too – matched nicely by Mateen's free lines on alto, tenor sax, and alto clarinet. Dave Burrell joins the pair on piano for four long, free numbers – and two more titles features Alan Silva on bass and Louis Belogenis on tenor. One remaining cut features just Murray and Mateen – and titles include "Fox Hunting In Manhattan (in 3 parts)", "Three Is A Crowd", "Top Dogs Boogie", "Trail Of Tears", and "Lonely Woman". CD

✨✧ Sunny Murray/Sabir MateenWe Are Not At The Opera ... CD
Eremite, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
You're definitely not at the opera with a set like this – a batch of well-crafted improvisations between drummer Sunny Murray and reedman Sabir Mateen – who plays alto, tenor sax, and flute throughout the course of the record! Like most of the best Eremite releases, this one is a live date – but has a sense of focus that's way more than just loose improvisation – a wonderful document of two very like-minded players, coming together with an openly creative vibe that recalls the soulfulness of the loft jazz generation. Titles include "Rejoicing New Dreams", "Clandestine Giant", "Too Many Drummers Not Enough Time", and "Musically Correct". CD

✨✧ Solidarity Unit, IncRed, Black & Green (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Charles Shaw/Eremite, 1972. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Landmark work from the St Louis scene – a pivotal album by Solidarity Unit – an offshoot of that city's groundbreaking Black Artists Group! The style here is very much in the mode of AACM work coming out of Chicago at the time – freely creative, and very exploratory – although often presented here with a sense of tightness and power that's even more impressive. Charles Bobo Shaw is the key musical vision here – having wrote, arranged, and produced the record – a bold vehicle for his own creative work on percussion, alongside other players who include Oliver Lake on flute and alto, Joseph Bowie on trombone, Danny Trice on congas, Richard Martin on guitar, and Baikida Yaseen (Carroll?) on trumpet. Tracks are all long, and quite free – and titles include "Beyond The New Horizon", "Floreo", and "Something To Play On". LP, Vinyl record album

Joshua AbramsSimultonality ... LP
Eremite, 2017. New Copy ... $29.99
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!)
