John ColtraneGiant Steps (180 gram pressing – mono) ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... On June 16, 2017
A true giant step for John Coltrane – and one of the first albums to really showcase his talent as a writer – and his amazing ability for penning some of the most soulful, spiritual themes in jazz! Apart from the well-known title cut, the record's filled with other Coltrane classics – key early readings of "Naima", "Cousin Mary", "Mr PC", "Spiral", and "Syeeda's Song Flute" – all showing a new sense of timing, phrasing, and pacing in jazz – one that would go on to have a huge impact on players in the 70s generation! The group here is relatively straight – Tommy Flanagan or Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – but the players have never sounded better, and really match Coltrane's sense of power and imagination on these legendary tracks!

✨✧ Tommy FlanaganGiant Steps – In Memory Of John Coltrane ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1982. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful little tribute to the late, great John Coltrane – served up as a piano trio session led by Tommy Flanagan, but done with a sense of power and imagination that rivals the strength of Trane's classics! All tracks here are originals by Coltrane, performed by Flanagan with a forceful approach to the piano that shows a bit more McCoy Tyner than usual – and which is propelled strongly on most numbers by bold rhythm work from the team of George Mraz on bass and Al Foster on drums. Foster's work on the kit is especially nice – quite bold, and really soaring forward with a sense of righteous energy – inspiring Flanagan to heights we've never heard before on a session like this. Titles include "Naima", "Giant Steps", "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Central Park West", "Mr PC", and "Cousin Mary". CD

Dizzy GillespieGiant (The Giant/Source) (Prestige) ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A stunning session, and proof that Dizzy never slept on his playing – even in the 70s! Originally released as 2 separate LPs in France on the America label, the record is a crack small group set recorded in Paris, and featuring very long tracks that let Dizzy really stretch out on his solos. Kenny Clarke is on drums, and he does some amazing work on the LP's version of "Manteca", which has a great breakbeat at the intro, then grooves along funkily for 13 minutes! The whole set's beautiful, and the other titles include "Brother K", "Wheatleigh Hall", and "Alone Together". The group also features a Brazilian percussionist on a few tracks – most notably the tight groover "Fiesta Mo Jo", a killer track with great solos and a rhythmic conception that shows that Dizzy's still got the Latin beat down nicely. Other titles include "Girl Of My Dreams", "Stella By Starlight", and "I Waited For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Don SebeskyGiant Box ... LP
CTI, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Box Set ... $7.99
One of the most ambitious albums on CTI – a very large project in which Don Sebesky seems to work with just about everyone else who recorded for the label! The Giant Box title is apt – as the record originally came packaged in a cardboard box – room enough to hold the 2 records that comprised it, all the long tunes on the set, and the huge array of cast who helped out on the project. Players include Sebesky on organ, piano, and electric piano – plus Baws, Joe Farrell, Paul Desmond, and many others. There's some sweet vocal backgrounds on the set – by Jackie & Roy, Lani Groves, and Tasha Thomas – and titles include "Vocalise", "Semi Tough", "Firebird/Birds Of Fire", "Free As A Bird", and "Song To A Seagul". Great stuff – with bits of funk, jazz, and ambitious arrangements – all filtered into the cool CTI sound! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGiant Single – The Profile Records Rap Anthology (colored vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Profile, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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.

✨✧ Dexter GordonSophisticated Giant ... CD
Columbia, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful album from Dexter Gordon's later years at Columbia – and a rare session that pairs larger arrangements with his soulful voice on the tenor and soprano saxophone! Although other players worked often in this mode, the record may well be the only one of its type for Dexter – but that doesn't stop it from being a standout treasure that lets us hear a whole new side of his talents. Slide Hampton handled the arrangements, and he really works some magic with players that include Woody Shaw, Benny Bailey, Frank Wess, and Bobby Hutcherson – using their best talents to create richly chromatic backdrops for Dex's solos. A few of the players step out on their own lines on longer tracks, and titles include "Fried Bananas", "You're Blase", "Insensatez", "Moontrane", and "Laura". CD

Giant/Traffic, 1992. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
We know we spend a lot of space on these pages propping up early 90s hip hop, but you have to admit it was the salad days of the east coast. Finesse's second LP's no exception, with tight lyrics and beats – keeping it real before it became a cliche – a DITC classic that we never grow tired of, and has been far to hard to get a hold of on vinyl for year! Timeless production that lives up to the title by Showbiz, Diamond D and Finesse. Tracks include "Party Over Here", "Yes You May", "Return Of The Funky Man", "Fat For The 90s", "Stop Sweating The Next Man", "That's How Smooth I Am", "Praise The Lord", "I Like My Girls With A Boom", "Hey Look At Shorty", "Isn't He Something" and "Funky On The Fast Tip".

A big overview of early work cut by Chet Baker's legendary quartet with pianist Russ Freeman – most of it from the group's initial time in the studio in 1953, but also featuring a handful of later sides from 1955, as well as some trio material by Russ on his own! The main Baker Quartet material here is presented in chronological order, and features some alternate LP and single versions of a few tunes, as well as alternate vocal and instrumental versions as well. Baker/Freeman titles include "Isn't It Romantic", "The Lamp Is Low", "Maid In Mexico", "Russ Job", "Happy Little Sunbeam", "Moon Love", "Band Aid", "Bea's Flat", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Winter Wonderland", "No Ties", "Batter Up", and "The Thrill Is Gone". Freeman Trio material includes "Don't Worry About Me", "Bock's Top", "At Last", and "Backfield In Motion". Then later tracks include "The Wind", "Trickleydidlier", and "I'm Through With Love" by a group with Zoot Sims & Bud Shank – plus live versions of "Stella By Starlight", "Walkin", and "Night In Tunisia". 42 tracks in all!

Eric AlexanderSummit Meeting ... CD
Milestone, 2002. Used ... $5.99
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

Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 17.98
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

Curtis AmyCurtis Amy – Mosaic Select (Blues Message/Meetin Here/Groovin Blue/Way Down/Tippin On Through/Katanga!) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, Early 60s. Used 3CD ... $59.99
An amazing transformation in jazz – the first 6 albums by Texas tenor giant Curtis Amy, packaged together in one box set! Amy had a deep gutsy sound that was similar to other Texas tenors coming out of the state during the postwar years – and initially, his first recordings in LA were done in a spirited soul jazz mode – often teaming with organist Paul Bryant, in loose and free albums that had the feel of some of the east coast sides cut for Prestige at the time. As the early 60s wore on, though, Amy really opened up – and started working with some of the hipper younger players of the LA scene, to shift his groove from straight soul jazz into more of a modally-inspired sound. The 6 albums on this set document this incredible transformation – already tremendous at the start, but even more revolutionary as Amy moved onto work with players that included Carmell Jones, Bobby Hutcherson, Frank Strazzeri, Jimmy Bond, Jack Wilson, and Roy Ayers. Amy's never gotten his due on the reissue market before, and although one of these albums has seen the light of day on CD, most of the other material is showing up here for the first time on reissue – making the limited numbered set even more important than most of the other Mosaic sets! Tremendous work all the way through – and a release that's bound to finally get Amy the attention he deserves. 36 tracks in all – with a great set of notes! CD

Banks & Steelz (RZA & Paul Banks)Anything But Words ... CD
Warner, 2016. Used ... $7.99
Wu Tang mastermind and all around modern renaissance man RZA teams up with Interpol vocalist Paul Banks...and it works. Wow! Considering the pros and cons of the contemporary musical landscape, one of the major pros is the cross-pollinating possibilities of what would've seemed crazy in the past. Still, the inspiration that might make a solid single happen with disparate figures rarely extends to an album – which is what makes Banks & Steelz such a leftfield win. RZA rhyming over hip hop/synth pop hybrid production and sharing vocals and production duties with Banks – with guest appearances by fellow Wu vets Meth, Ghost and Masta Killa, plus Kool Keith and Florence Welch. Includes "Giant", "Ana Electronic", "Sword In The Stone" feat Kool Keith, "Wild Season" woth Florence Welch, "Conceal", "Love And War" with Ghostface, "Can't Hardly Feel", "One By One", "Gonna Make It" and "Point Of View" with Method Man & Masta Killa.

Gary BartzLove Affair ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
A wicked set from the great Gary Bartz – one done after his mid 70s association with Larry Mizell – but still very much in a similar groove! The album's a great blend of Gary's soulful alto work with sweet electric backings – often put together with that angular stepping mode he used on some of his gentler funky numbers – and blended with a few mellower moments that live up to the title of the record, and really let Bartz stretch out on soulful solos. There's plenty of nice keyboards on the set, but Nate Morgan also brings in a slightly righteous vibe at times too – and titles include "Shake Your Body", "Love Affair", "At Last", and a remake of "Giant Steps", done in a pretty great way that has it sounding like a sweet 70s modal groover.

Killer live material! Although the Jazz Messengers often recorded at Birdland (aka The Jazz Corner Of The World), the two albums on this disc are some of their best – and rarest – from that venue! The set features both volumes of these rare releases – which caught Blakey's group in an under-recorded transitional time when the lineup included new guard players Lee Morgan and Bobby Timmons, plus old guard tenor giant Hank Mobley. The mix is beautiful, and has a lot more gutbucket soul than the later sessions with Wayne Shorter. Tracks are all pretty long – and filled with live fire and frenzy. Titles include "Hipsippy Blues", "Justice", "Just Coolin", "Art's Revelation", and "M&M". CD

While the live gig grit is buffed out of in the studio, there's no lack of game-changing greatness here – and titles include "X Offender", "Little Girls Lie", "In The Sun", "In The Flesh", "Rifle Range", "Kung Fu Girls", "The Attack Of The Giant Ants" and more.

Stelvio proves himself to be a giant both on the funky numbers and the mellower moments – the former done with these cool stepping basslines mixed with really sweet keyboards – the latter served up with slinky strings that echo some of the best Italian erotic styles of the time, complete with some great watery touches on the production! This masterful reissue really expands past the original 12 track album – to offer up an additional 15 bonus cuts, wrapped up in a lovely-looking package as well.

Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy 6 CDs ... $44.99 64.99
The early genius of John Coltrane – summed up perfectly on his albums for Atlantic Records! Coltrane was really going through some amazing changes here – picking up on some of his more modal and freewheeling solo expressions, while also able to hang back in some of the more soulful moments of his previous work on Prestige – criss-crossing jazz territory that few would touch this well again, even though Coltrane continues to influence so many with these records! The package presents five full albums in mono – all of them classics – Giant Steps (with the title track, "Naima", "Mr PC", and "Cousin Mary"), Bags & Trane (a duet session with vibist Milt Jackson), Ole Coltrane (with the incredible side-long title cut), Coltrane Plays The Blues, and The Avant Garde (an amazing collaboration with trumpeter Don Cherry).

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 ... LP
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
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".

Eric DolphyEric Dolphy In Europe Volume 2 ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Fair ... $11.99
Classic set of European recordings – made by Dolphy in 1961, before the fateful 1964 European tour that would later claim his life. The group features Swedish piano giant Bent Axen, plus a rhythm section that includes Erik Moseholm on bass and Jorn Elniff on drums. Like most Dolphy recordings from the time, however, the main focus is on Dolphy himself, and the long tracks feature some beautiful extended solos on alto and flute. Tracks are long, and titles include "Miss Ann", "Don't Blame Me", and "Laura". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label stereo pressing. NOTE: FAIR CONDITION. Cover is in nice shape.)

Arne DomnerusFavourite Groups 1949 to 1950 ... CD
Metronome/Dragon (Sweden), Late 40s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Seminal work from one of the first great modernists to emerge on the Swedish scene of the postwar years – reedman Arne Domnerus, whose work on clarinet tied him to an earlier generation, but whose increasing recordings on alto sax really opened up to the best tones of the bop modern scene! These recordings feature Domnerus on both instruments – the clarinet, like Buddy DeFrano, far more bop than swing at times – alongside a range of other wonderful players who include Gosta Theselius on piano, Leppe Sundevall on trumpet and bass, Ulfe Linde on vibes, Bengt Hallberg on piano, and even some guest tenor work by James Moody! The set features recordings that Arne made for the Metronome label, but also expands out past any other package of this work to even include some unissued numbers, and some live jam session material with baritone giant Lars Gullin. 22 tracks in all – with titles that include "Conversation", "Running A Temperature", "More Than You Know", "Deep Purple", "Car Rider", "Laura", "Larry's Blues", "Stuffy", "Out Of Nowhere", and "All The Things You Are".

Paquito D'RiveraEste Camino Largo ... CD
Yemaya (Spain), 1978. New Copy ... $5.99 14.98
70s recordings by Cuban tenor giant Paquito D'Rivera – done in the company of a host of different ensembles, and representing some great work recorded for the Egrem label, not readily available in the US! Some sides have Rivera blowing with longtime compatriot Chucho Valdes on piano – either in a spare setting, or with the group Irakere – and a few other sides have Rivera working with the Finland Jazz combo, in 1978. There's a surprising amount of modes on the set – from mellow, to soulful, to slightly traditional – and titles include "Chekere Son", "La Cancion De Los Ninos", "Este Camino Largo", and "Hasta Siempre".

Chico Freeman & Von FreemanFreeman & Freeman ... CD
India Navigation, 1989. Used ... $9.99
One of a few albums from the late 80s that features underground saxophonist Chico Freeman playing in the company of his father, Chicago tenor giant Von Freeman. This set was recorded live in New York, and it's a bit more straight ahead than the pair's earlier Lord Riff & Me set for the Why Not label – but it comes across nicely, in a mode that shows that Chico has absorbed more than a bit of his pop's strengths over the years. Rhythm is by Kenny Barron, Cecil McBee, and Jack DeJohnette – but Muhal Richard Abrams plays piano on one track, "Paying New York Dues". Other titles include "Undercurrents", "Lover Man", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". CD
(Out of print.)
