✨✧ Frank WrightOne For John ... LP
Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of the real classics on BYG/Actuel! Tenorist Frank Wright is joined by alto player Noah Howard, pianist Bobby Few, and drummer Muhammad Ali in an excellent set of material that's very much in the post-Coltrane/late-Ayler spirit. The set includes 2 long tracks – Wright's "One For John" (Coltrane, natch) and Few's "China". The playing is excellent, Few's piano is a brilliant highlight of the album – and the record is a prime example of how well Americans like Wright and Howard could play in the freer setting of the European scene! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

✨✧ Paul DesmondBridge Over Troubled Water ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Paul Desmond serves up his own versions of some key tunes by Simon & Garfunkel tunes – with results that are simply amazing! The style here takes all the airy brilliance of the original S&G tunes, and turns it towards a more jazz-based mode – one that has some of the slight Brazilian undercurrents in the rhythms that you'll find on Desmond's previous two albums for CTI! The full arrangements are by Don Sebesky, who brings a great sense of balance to the set – and Herbie Hancock plays some great electric piano, in a group that also features Airto on percussion and Gene Bertoncini on guitar. But the real star of the set is Paul Desmond – blowing with that amazing tone of his – and sliding from tune to tune with effortless ease, in a way that really transforms these tunes in their instrumental readings. Titles include "Cecilia", "Mrs. Robinson", "America", "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright", and "Scarborough Fair" – all done with a sweet jazzy A&M approach! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Mary WilsonMary Wilson ... LP
Motown, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A post-Supremes disco effort from Mary Wilson – but one that comes off relatively well, especially considering how a session like this could flop if done poorly! Mary's getting some top-shelf help on the album – Hal Davis on production, Art Wright on arrangements, and a set of original material by Frank Busey and John Duarte – all of which keeps the record from being just a disco filler kind of set. But the real strength here is Wilson's vocals – which are strongly soulful, and never overwhelmed by the backings. And while we're not ready to say that Mary's a great club diva, we're surprised at how well she does fit into this mode. Titles include "Midnight Dancer", "Red Hot", "You Make Me Feel So Good", "Pick Up The Pieces", and "I've Got What You Need". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and some wear.)

✨✧ Terry PollardTerry Pollard ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few female pianists in 50s jazz – the great Terry Pollard, a player who's usually associated with the Detroit scene, but who works here in a hip west coast setting for Bethlehem Records! The date's got Terry's strong piano in a quintet – with Don Fagerquist on trumpet and Howard Roberts on guitar – both musicians who bring a strong sense of presence to the group passages on the date, but who are also more than willing to step aside and let Pollard really flourish on her solos during some of the album's trio tracks. Terry's sometimes got this bite that's a bit unusual for Bethlehem – a nice nod to her Detroit roots – and the group also features Herman Wright on bass and Frank DeVito on drums. Titles include "Laura", "Fedj", "Emaline", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Where Or When". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing, on Fresh Sound, from Spain – but hard to find in any format!)
