George BraithMusart ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $5.99 13.98
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

✨✧ Jonas KullhammarJonas Kullhammar & The New Kids On The Rock(180 gram pressing)(2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title's a bit of a joke, but it's only Jonas Kullhamar's way of letting us know that he's working here with three very new and exciting players on the Swedish scene! The set has Kullhammar blowing both tenor and the Braithophone of George Braith – with a trio that has boundless energy and a really youthful, vibrant feel – so much so that Jonas may be more unbridled here than he has been in years! The group features Johan Graden on piano, Vilhelm Bromander on bass, and Konrad Agnas on drums – and titles include "Britta On The Rocks", "The Defiers", "Britta's Bounce", "Vem Jagar Roland", and "On Top Of Melting Iceberg".

✨✧ Nacka Forum (Kajfes/Kullhammar/Berthling/Osgood)We Are The World ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record that's got a lot more going on than you'd expect from the cat video innocence of its cover – hardly the kind of throwaway content you'd find online, and instead a rock-solid session of free jazz from this heavyweight Swedish group! The quartet boasts some of the fiercest trumpet we've ever heard from Goran Kajfes – who also plus cornet, percussion, and a slide trumpet too – alongside massive reeds from the mighty Jonas Kullhammar – who handles tenor, flute, and sopranino – plus wonderfully odd horns like slide saxophone, and George Braith's amazing Braithophone! Yet despite the unusual instruments, neither musician acts with the impulse of gimmick – and instead, the players hold onto a very firey spirit at the core – driven onward by the bass of Johan Berthling and drums of Kresten Osgood – who also plays a bit of piano – on these tracks that spin far out, but swing back strongly – always with a unified energy that's really wonderful – that special spark that first made us fall in love with the Moserobie label years ago. Titles include "Buss 414", "Do The Nacka Forum", "Chogolisa", "Thinking About JC", and "Magwaza". CD

Murder Inc (Irving Joseph)Murder Inc+ ... LP
Time, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A very cool little record – one that imagines itself as a crime jazz soundtrack for a movie that doesn't exist – yet manages to come across with all the best styles of the time, with a quality to rival the best from Henry Mancini, Pete Rugolo, and Elmer Bernstein! Like famous scores by all of those artists, the work here features a strong array of jazz musicians and studio giants, coming together in tight formation to create these cuts that have a very vivid feel overall – music that's instantly able to paint these brilliant little pictures in sound, with dynamic energy that comes not just from the group as a whole,b ut also from strong breakout solo moments! The set includes vibes from Eddie Costa, trumpet from Lou Mucci, bass from George Duvivier, guitars from Barry Galbraith and Bucky Pizzarelli, percussion from Phil Kraus, and a whole lot of great reeds from Phil Bodner – on a set of original titles that include "State's Evidence", "Third Degree", "We The Jury", "Prison Break", "Stool Pigeon", and "Bad Day In Brooklyn" LP, Vinyl record album

Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good- ... $3.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has clear tape on the seams, a stain on one corner, and some on back.)

✨✧ Paul QuinichetteMoods (Trip) ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, Charles Thompson, Paul Chambers, and Barry Galbraith – plus players like Willie Rodriguez and Manny Oquendo, who bring some added Latin percussion to the session. The tracks are short, but with a very open approach to soloing, and although Quinchette's in the lead, some of the other players get their licks in quite a bit. Titles include "Pablo's Roonie", "Shorty George", "Grasshopper", and "Tropical Intrigue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later Trip pressing.)
