Larry CoryellHeavy Feel ... CD
Wide Hive, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Larry Coryell's lost none of his genius over the years – and this recent session still has the guitar innovator working with all the best styles we first loved in his initial recordings for Vanguard! Larry's got a tone that can be clear and clean one minute on the electric, then filled with this full fuzz that really takes off – never sloppy, but really unique for a jazz musician – and his acoustic work is equally brilliant, with a knowledge of folk, but still very focused on jazz phrasing – balanced out here alongside electric performances in a really great way. Larry's not just rehashing old territory, though – as he works with a fresh group that also includes George Brooks on soprano sax, Matt Montgomery on bass, and Mike Hughes on drums – on titles that include "River Crossing", "Ghost Note", "Polished", "2011 East", "Heavy Feel", and "Foot Path To Oasis".

Jackie McLeanOne Step Beyond (2LP 180gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Masters, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP ... $39.99
An amazing album – simply groundbreaking, and a key turn for Jackie McLean! The record features a group of hip young players – including a very young Tony Williams, plus Grachan Moncur III, Bobby Hutcherson, and Eddie Kahn – all playing in a spare contemplative modernist mode that would soon become known as "new thing" jazz. The four tracks on the album – "Frankenstein", "Ghost Town", "Blue Rondo", and "Saturday & Sunday" – are extremely stark, and even Hutcherson's often-warm vibes sound harsh and metallic, especially next to McLean's razor-sharp tone. The record's a real treasure – and never too out to be unenjoyable by fans of McLean's more inside work. Extremely compelling – and we sure wish they were making them like this again!

Dizzy ReeceSoundin' Off (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960. Used ... $14.99
A killer quartet session by Brit trumpeter Dizzy Reece, recorded as one of his three American albums for Blue Note during the late 50s! Unlike the other records, which featured larger groups, this album's done with a quartet – which gives Reece a chance to really take over on his solos – blowing with a sense of warm and lyricism that's not heard as strongly on the other records – really getting some great support from a rhythm trio that includes Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Quite different from some of Dizzy's London work of the time – and with tracks that include "A Ghost Of A Chance", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Blue Streak", "Eb Pob", and a nice version of "Yesterdays".

Erik TruffazFace A Face ... CD
Blue Note (France), 2006. Used 2CD ... $4.99
Way more than just a conventional live album from trumpeter Erik Truffaz – as the package offers two totally different slices of Erik's work – one disc with his Ladyland group, and one with his more conventional quartet! Truffaz first caught our ears way back in the 90s, when his electric, atmospheric approach to funky jazz reminded us a lot of the best 70s modes of Miles Davis and Eddie Henderson – but also had a leaner, sometimes funkier groove that breathed new life into the sound of Blue Note on the European scene. That style is explored strongly here with Erik's regular quartet – matching fierce trumpet lines with funky drums, guitar, and some warm keyboards – and it's also expanded on even further by the Ladyland group, who bring in Eastern influences to their music, and echo the rapidly changing ethnicities on the current French scene. Between both discs, there's a whopping amount of work here – 26 tracks that include "Sweet Mercy", "King B", "Wilfried", "Bending New Corners", "Walk Of The Giant Turtle", "Arroyo", "Saloua", "Gedech", "Dubophone", "Ghost Drummer", "Yabous", "Outlaw", and "Big Wheel".

✨✧ VariousDetroit Jazz City ... CD
Blue Note, 1960s/2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really beautiful project from Blue Note – a special record that features new material from the reborn Detroit jazz scene, mixed with older gems from the Blue Note catalog by key musicians who came to the label from the Motor City! The new work here is more than worth the price of the record – more than half the record, played by a number of different artists who turn out some of the most soulful, solid work on the label in the past few years – so much so, we'd love to see some of these tracks expanded into bigger album projects on their own! The new titles all seem to share a link in bassist Marion Hayden, who appears on all of them – and new titles include "The Uncrowned King" by Marion Hayden, "Lottie The Body's Mood" by Marcus Belgrave, "Many Blessings" by James Carter, "Ghost Dancers" by A Spencer Barefield, and "Sheila's Blues" by Sheila Jordan. Classics include "Reza" by Elvin Jones, "Mode For Joe" by Joe Henderson, "You" by Kenny Cox, and "French Spice" by Donald Byrd – and all proceeds for the record go to charity. But, the whole thing's great enough, you don't even have to consider buying it as a charitable act! CD

✨✧ VariousFlip Hits! Flip Misses! ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... On April 1, 2016
Lost R&B work from the LA-based Flip Records label – not as big of a name as some of its contemporaries, but still a strong force on the west coast scene! Flip is noteworthy in the styles of music forged at the label – modes that grew out of indie 50s R&B, but which prefaced later 60s styles that include girl group, deep soul, and even a bit of garage rock and pop. The CD brings together material from the 2 rare Flip albums 12 Flip Hits and Original Recordings By The Artists – plus an additional batch of "Flip misses" that are lesser-known tunes, but equally great. Work here includes the sweet female harmonies, harder group soul, R&B, and even some choice instrumental numbers – a total of 30 tracks that include "Casual Look", "Teenage Promise", and "Why Do I Go To School" by The Six Teens; "Have Love Will Travel" and "Take The Key" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs; "Do Not Forget" and "Since You've Been Gone" by The Dreamers; "Death Of An Angel" and "Stay With Me Always" by Donald Woods; "Beginning Of Our Love" and "Shame On You" by Rosalle & Donnell; "Ghost Town" and "Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna" by Ray Johnson Combo; "Teenage Bounce" by Sherman Williams; "Uncle Sam's Man" by The Elgins; and "Bye Bye Baby" by Shank & Maydiea.

✨✧ Rahsaan Roland KirkPrepare Thyself To Deal With A Miracle ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, and it's got a wonderful mix of inside and outside playing – a bit more Kirk-unleased overall than some of the more focused experiments of previous records – filled with lots of personality, incredible reed work, and a sound that's spiritual, yet also deeply individual too! Rahsaan plays flute, notes flute, black mystery pipes, E flat sax, and clarinet – and other musicians include Charles McGhee on trumpet, Dick Griffin on trombone, Ron Burton on piano, and Sonny Brown and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – plus a hip string ensemble on some cuts – definitely giving the album a touch of the "Black Classical Music" style that Kirk always claimed was at the root of his work. Side two features the extended "Saxophone Concerto", which has some cool breathing tricks that really let Roland wail – and other tracks include "Celestial Bliss", "One Mind Winter/Summer", and "Ninth Ghost", all of which have a nice dose of spirituality.

✨✧ RaekwonOnly Built 4 Cuban Linx (2LP purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Loud/RCA/Get On Down, 1995. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Chef Raekwon cooks up one of finest hip hop albums in history – a standout moment in the Wu Tang canon and the 90s in general! Given Ghostface's presence throughout, the prime RZA production and other top shelf guests, you could almost call this one a Wu Tang Clan album, if not for Raekwon's incredible leadership behind the mic. Guests include Nas, Method Man, Inspektah Deck and more from the Wu Tang family. An absolute standard-bearer! Titles include "Spot Rusherz", "Can It Be All So Simple", "Knuckleheadz", "Criminology", "Ice Water", "Wisdom Body", and "Wu-Gambinos". This great 2LP remastered 2012 vinyl reissue also includes the bonus "North Star (Jewels)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered 2LP Get On Down on translucent purple vinyl – with liner notes by Raekwon and Brian Coleman.)
