Frank Wright TrioFrank Wright Trio (original pressing) ... LP
ESP, 1965. Very Good ... $39.99
A freewheeling workout in the classic ESP mode. Wright's hard tenor is set against the bass of Henry Grimes and the drums of Tom Price. (In a way, this is like Grimes' ESP record, with Wright in the place of Perry Robinson.) Three long tracks, with lots of room for Wright to wail. Tracks include "The Moon", "Jerry", and "The Earth". (What a treat for Deadheads – to have Jerry between the Earth and the Moon!) LP, Vinyl record album
(Back cover has images of ESP covers up to 1028, and the inner label is white with black type and a 5th Ave address. Cover has moisture staining along the bottom half.)

Paul DesmondBridge Over Troubled Water ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
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

Leo WrightSoul Talk ... LP
Vortex, 1963. Sealed ... $14.99
A rare soul jazz session from alto saxophonist Leo Wright – a player that we mostly know from his bossa work of the early 60s! The session's extremely noteworthy as being one of the few to feature female organist Gloria Coleman – a player with whom Wright worked on her classic 1963 date Soul Sisters, and who returns here in a very similar hard-wailing sax-and-organ mode! Wright's work on alto is incredibly deep – with a sharper bite than much of his other 60s sessions, and a gutsy down-n-dirty quality that makes the record feel like one of the best organ jazz albums at the time from Prestige. Coleman's approach to the Hammond is great too – freely skipping around with a liberated sense of rhythm, in a way that matches Wright's every twist and turn with ease – and throws a few of its own into the mix as well! The group's completed by Kenny Burrell on guitar (also sounding harder here than usual!) and Frankie Dunlop on drums – and titles include some fresh originals "Poopsie's Minor", "State Trooper", "Blue Leo", "Blues Fanfare", and "Soul Talk". LP, Vinyl record album
