Gentle GiantThree Friends ... CD
Columbia, 1972. Used ... $4.99
An unusual little concept record from Gentle Giant – one based around the story of three childhood friends each going their own separate ways – but served up with enough of the group's usual jazzy flair to keep things interesting! As on other records from the time, there's almost a fusion inspiration going on here – really jamming guitar and keyboard parts – sometimes at a level that matches the bigger mainstream groups of the time, but more often in the prog hinterlands, especially on the vocal parts, which have a flowing quality that really matches the keyboards. Titles include "Prologue", "Schooldays", "Peel The Paint", and "Mister Class & Quality". CD

✨✧ Gentle GiantGentle Giant ... LP
Vertigo (UK), 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The amazing first album from Gentle Giant – a crucially overlooked group from the key years of the UK jazz-rock scene! The album definitely comes at things from a rock perspective, but there's a hell of a lot of fusion in the mix too – especially in the guitar and keyboard parts, which jump around with these sharp edges that rival some of the more jazz-based fusion from the European scene of the 70s – played to perfection, even amidst some of the record's higher-concept lyrics – which themselves kind of fall into a King Crimson camp. In fact, the mix of lyricism and all-out jamming makes the record a good comparison to the Crimson camp of the time – yet for some reason, these guys have never gotten as much cred over the years as that group. Titles include "Nothing At All", "Isn't It Quiet & Cold", "Why Not", "Giant", and "Funny Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Douglas & The WesterliesLittle Giant Still Life ... CD
Greenleaf, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Bold work from one of the most restlessly creative talents in jazz – trumpeter Dave Douglas, who always seems to surprise us with the setting of each new record! This set has Dave blowing with his Westerlies group – a sextet with two trumpets, two trombones, and a drummer – which makes for a brass-strong sound, but expressed in a small combo mode – rhythmic elements from the drums and other horns, supporting one soloist in the lead – on tunes that are all originals by Douglas, and have a mighty tight punch! There's no other instrumentation in the group at all – which means that the trombones handle a bit of bass, and all horns might fit in where a piano would normally rest – all of which makes for a very unique sound throughout. Titles include "Champion", "Arcade", "Men & Machine", "Bunting", "Swing Landscape", "The Front Page", "Colonial Cubism", and "Your Special Day". CD

Johnny GriffinLittle Giant ... LP
Riverside, 1959. Very Good- ... $5.99
One of Johnny Griffin's hard blowing LPs as a leader for Jazzland – recorded with a crack lineup that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums! This is the kind of work that the term "hard bop" was coined for – sharp-edged jazz at its best – informed strongly by earlier bop and modern modes, but also played with a deeper dose of soul overall. The six players come together perfectly throughout – working with a tightness that matches most Blue Note work of the time – and titles are a great set of tracks that includes 3 by Chicago pianist Norman Simmons, and 1 by the great Babs Gonzales. Tunes include "Olive Refractions", "The Message", "Lonely One", "Playmates", and "63rd Street Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

SlitsReturn Of The Giant Slits ... CD
CBS/Real Gone, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 14.98
The dramatic return of the Slits – sounding incredible here on this second album! The set's not as rough and ragged as their first effort – but is still also fairly groundbreaking stuff – mixing up dub and post-punk styles with an almost British avant sensibility that has the whole thing coming together beautifully – and with a righteous power that made the trio one of the most important female acts of the postpunk years. The girls' sense of humor and interplay holds all tracks together wonderfully, and the album's filled with enigmatic little tunes that include "Earthbeat", "Or What It Is", "Face Place", "Walk About", "Animal Space/Spacier", "Life On Earth", and "Improperly Dressed".

VariousGiant Single – The Profile Records Rap Anthology (colored vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Profile, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99 24.98
The Profile Records label may be best-remembered as the initial home of Run DMC – but back in the day, the company was one of the top imprints on the New York scene – and one of the few who could be a bit bigtime, yet still keep the right sort of ears to the ground! The selection here certainly lives up to that legacy – as the music is filled with some overlooked treasures, mixed with a few key classics – all to serve up a perfect portrait of the hip hop underground as it was really breaking out and moving up! Titles include "Genius Rap" by Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, "Whip Rap" by Disco Four, "Word Of Mouth" by King Kut, "A Fly Guy" by Pebblee Poo, "Fresh" by Fresh 3 MCs, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K-Rob, "Nightmares" by Dana Dane, "Get Off My Tip" by Masterdon Committee, "Lies Lies" by Rap-O-Matic, "It's My Beat" by Sweet Tee & Jazzy Joyce, "Drag Rap" by The Showboys, "Here Comes That Beat" by Pumpkin & The Profile All-Stars, and "Sucker MCs (Krush Groove 1)" by Run-DMC.

Gerry Mulligan QuartetOn The Road – Live In California ... CD
Giant Steps (UK), Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
A great assortment of rare live material from Gerry Mulligan's groundbreaking piano-less years – tracks recorded between 1952 and 1954, in groups with either Chet Baker or Jon Eardley on trumpet! Tracks include 5 from a 1952 date at the Blackhawk in San Francisco, 15 more from The Haig in LA in 1953 (including a few with Lee Konitz on alto) – plus even more obscure dates at Stockton High School in 1954 and Hoover High School in San Diego from the same year! Chico Hamilton plays drums on all the high school dates, and the sound is surprisingly good – with the right sort of crispness to make Gerry's unique approach come through perfectly! 2CD set features a whopping 35 tracks that include "Line For Lyons", "Carioca", "Utter Chaos", "Bark For Barksdale", "Lover Man", "Bernie's Tune", "Funhouse", "Ida's Side", "Five Brothers", "Get Happy", "Poinciana", "Blues For Tiny", "Limelite", "Nights At The Turntable", "Ontet", "Soft Shoe", and "Piano Blues".

✨✧ DonnieExcerpts From The Colored Section EP ... CD
Giant Step, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Donnie – a hell of a soul singer, and a talent that will be huge! Donnie's got a warm vocal style that reminds us a lot of his namesake Donny Hathaway – and the work on this ep has a similar 70s approach to mellow soul, warm, round, deep, and with slight touches of spiritualism that really give his work a classic sound. This ep's only got three tracks and one remix, but it's essential listening – and from the moment we opened it, we haven't stopped playing it! Tracks groove in a sweet mellow way with lots of warm keyboards and acoustic percussion – a move back to Donnie's original style, after a brief mis-step into house awhile back. Includes original and Danny Krivit mixes of "Do You Know?" – plus the tracks "Cloud 9" and "You've Got A Friend", both original compositions by Donnie, not to be confused with the older songs of the same name.

Titles include "El Gollpe Avisa", "Buddah Head", "Nerd", "Balimka", "Rentstrike", and "Saturday Afternoon". CD

Eric AlexanderSummit Meeting ... CD
Milestone, 2002. Used ... $4.99
This tenor giant gets better and better with each new album! Eric Alexander is one of our favorite new jazz artists of the past decade – still a relatively young player, but with a sound that's incredible, steeped in years of tradition, yet freely creative in his own unique way. His tenor solos on this set stand up to some of our favorite older work by players like Clifford Jordan or Sonny Rollins, and if anything, the backing may be some of the best he's ever received on record. Alexander's playing here with longtime friend and musical partner Harold Mabern – who's as sympathetic to Alexander's sound as he once was to that of Frank Strozier – and the other players in the group include trumpeter Nicholas Payton, John Webber, and Joe Farnsworth. Titles include "Andre's Turn", "After The Rain", "This Girl's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", and "Summit Meeting". CD

Don't be put off by the silly cover image of Charlie in an Indian head dress – as the costume's only a reference to Barnet's big hit "Cherokee", and doesn't imply any sort of cheesy musical gimmick on the set. And in fact, if anything, the style here is even more sophisticated than before – as the Barnet groove is updated with some nice 50s arrangements from Billy May, Bill Holman, and Andy Gibson. Titles include "Blue Juice", "Charleston Alley", "Smiles", "Moten Swing", and "Redskin Rhumba". CD

A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". LP, Vinyl record album

Philology (Italy), 2003. New Copy ... $18.99 21.98
A beautiful meeting between two generations of Italian jazz – and a set that's almost gone onto become a modern classic over the years! Older tenorist Gianni Basso is perfectly matched here with younger trumpet giant Fabrizio Bosso – in a sound that's sweet on the edges, and has a nice bite in the middle – well-recorded, with very compelling song choices – and superb backing from a trio that features Andrea Pozza on piano, Luciano Milanese on bass, and Stefano Bagnoli on drums! You can really hear the formative roots of the current Italian scene that's really taken off in the past decade or so – and Bosso is nicely restrained at times, but only in a way that seems respectful to the well-crafted tenor sound of Basso. Titles include "Fan Tan", "Zoot", "Jones' Beach", "Split Kick", "Sweet & Lovely", and "Lucius Lu". CD

Baritone madness, and a lot more too – a set that's full of surprises, and which may well be one of the most striking records on the Beehive label from Chicago! The date not only features twin terrors on baritone sax – Nick Brignola and Pepper Adams, both blowing at the height of their powers – but it also includes a very unusual group of players alongside them – modern giant Ted Curson on trumpet and flugelhorn, avant bassist Dave Holland, incredible drummer Roy Haynes, and British pianist Derek Smith. The unlikely meeting of players comes off wonderfully here – and most tracks are nice and long, with lots of blowing session room for solos! Tracks include "Billie's Bounce", "Donna Lee", "Marmeduke", "Alone Together", and "Body & Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

The group's bigger than on most of Bryant's other records of the time – some larger charts arranged by Horace Ott, who had a lot of background in soul and R&B, and brings all of those elements to work nicely on the grooves. Rusty's still out front soloing nicely – in a manner that recalls Stanley Turrentine on CTI or Hank Crawford on Kudu – and other players include Ott himself on keyboards, Wilbur Baxcomb on bass, George Devens on vibes, David Spinozza on guitar, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Funky cuts include "The Hump Bump" and "Ga Gang Gang Goong" – and other titles include "Draggin The Line", "Red Eye Special", and "Troubles". LP, Vinyl record album

Don Byas with The Jacobs BrothersGroovin High – Live In Haarlem 1964 ... CD
Dutch Jazz Archive (Netherlands), 1964. New Copy ... $19.99
An unusual later performance from tenor giant Don Byas – one that has him working with a very cool Dutch group, and hitting some modes that are quite different than some of Don's earlier work! Byas was right at home in the overseas scene at the time – a fact that you'll notice on his surprisingly strong Dutch language introductions to one of the tracks, and which you'll hear superbly in his work with Pim Jacobs on piano, Ruud Jacobs on bass, and John Engels on drums – all top players on the scene in The Netherlands, with a bold rhythmic approach that often pushes Byas more strongly into 60s grooves than anyone might expect. The album begins with a great modal version of "On Green Dolphin Street", and includes takes on "I Remember Clifford", "Lady Bird", "Groovin High", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Billie's Bounce". CD

Joshua Clegg CafferyTraditional Music In Coastal Louisiana – The 1934 Lomax Recordings (hardcover) ... Book
Louisiana State University, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 45.95
A detailed look at one of the most compelling strands of the legendary field recordings of Alan Lomax – his 1934 foray into the rich musical culture of Southern Louisiana! Although some of the Lomax recordings have been brought out and examined under the spotlight in just about every way possible, these recordings have remained a bit more obscure – and finally get full exposure here – in a detailed volume that moves through each recording one by one, presenting the artist, the setting, the lyrics, and a larger critical examination of the work – almost like some giant book-length presentation of liner notes for the 1934 Louisiana field recordings. Not for the feint of heart, but if you've got interest in the farther reaches of cajun music, you'll find plenty here to love – as the hardcover book is 346 pages, and overflowing with notes and information.

A seminal self-titled set from Jimmy Cliff – one of the singer's first full albums – presented here in a package issued by Trojan Records from earlier Jamaican sides produced with Leslie Kong! Cliff is already a giant at this point – singing with a far-reaching soulfulness that goes way beyond simple reggae modes that mindblowing sound that made him one of the first true international stars to burst forth from the Kingston scene – with a quality that's sometimes strong enough to rival American soul giants like Otis Redding or Marvin Gaye! This deep soul influence comes through even more beautifully here on these early tracks – on hits that include "Many Rivers To Cross" and "Wonderful World Beautiful People" – plus the titles "Vietnam", "Hard Road To Travel", "Sufferin In The Land", "Time Will Tell", and "Come Into My Life". CD features 14 bonus tracks, 25 tracks in all! CD

An amazing set of work by John Coltrane – some of his best recordings ever, tracks that form a pivotal point between his later 50s work with Miles Davis and his mid 60s spiritual searching years. The set's unbelievably exhaustive – and includes every track that was ever issued by Coltrane on an Atlantic album, plus some great alternate takes, plus a 72 page hardbound book of photos and writings, plus a whole CD of rare material that was never issued before! (The folks at Atlantic say that they would have loved to make an even bigger set – but after a fire in their warehouse in the 70s, this one CD of tapes is all that ever remained!) The whole package is incredibly well put together – in a small discrete box with some great fold-out CD cases, and a wonderful mechanism for storage that's as great as the music in the set. Titles include "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Ole", "My Favorite Things", "Cousin Mary", "Giant Steps", "Mr Day", "Blues To Elvin", "Satellite", "Liberia", "Dahomey Dance", and sooooo much more! CD

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... CD
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from the album's placement on Brain Records – and the lineup features incredible work from Sigi Schwab on guitar – who can be open and spacious at some points, but then really jam with a groove at others! Likewise, the bassist Eberhard Weber can provide a lot of propulsion when needed, but also lay back and bow his cello in a more ECM-like way – and the album's two drummers, Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, both show an equally deft ability to change up the groove! The real superstar, though, is the mighty Dauner – who plays piano, organ, and keyboards, plus a sweet bit of flute too – on tracks that include "Reading Machine", "Kamasutram", "Blues Far Out", "Flute Woman", and a freaky fuzzy take on Cannonball Adderley's "Jive Samba".

The definitive classic of the post-millennium Flaming Lips! Weird and bubbly and soul-searchingly introspective at the the same time, metaphorically at least – there's only so much navel gazing that can happen on an album with a young girl vs giant robots motif – this one to another step in their newfound love of more layered sounds and electronics that came out so strong on the critically and fan-beloved, but at the time commercially overlooked The Soft Bulletin, with songs that manage to some of their oddest and catchiest at the same time. Includes "Fight Test", "One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21", "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots" (Pts 1 & 2), "Egotripping At The Gates Of Hell", "Are You A Hypnotist??", "Do You Realize??", "All We Have Is Now" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis FullerSoul Trombone (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1961. Used ... $18.99
One of the best non-Blue Note albums from the early years of trombone giant Curtis Fuller – a definite cooker that more than lives up to its title! At his best, Fully often played his instrument with a style that was more like a trumpet than trombone – isolated notes, sharp sense of rhythm, and an ability to match energy of all his top-shelf contemporaries – which is a key thing here, as the lineup includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jimmy Heath on tenor, and Cedar Walton on drums – almost like a Jazz Messengers album from the time that Fuller was in the group, but without Art Blakey. The whole album's wonderful – and titles include "The Clan", "Newdles", and "Ladies Night" – plus a hard hitting rendition of "Dear Old Stockholm" which runs for 9 minutes. CD

Joao GilbertoBrazil's Brilliant Joao Gilberto ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
This is the original US pressing of an album that was later issued by Capitol under a different name. Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty heavily into the Brazilian Odeon catalog of tunes to cash in on the American popularity of bossa nova. This album was one of their bigger imports, and it features material originally recorded in Brazil, with Gilberto up front, backed by arrangements by Jobim. This is the classic material that made Gilberto's fame in the early days – and titles include "Doralice", "O Pato", "Discussao", "Outra Vez", and "Corcovado". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has light aging and some notes on back.)
