Matt UleryIn The Ivory ... CD
Greenleaf, 2014. Used 2CD ... $6.99
Matt Ulery just keeps on getting better and better – to a point where his music may well be a genre unto itself! This album's got Matt working with a larger ensemble – a mix of woodwind and string players, augmented with some key vocal passages as well – a double-length record that's mostly instrumental, but which has these beautiful songs step forth at just the right points – with lyrics delivered by Sarah Marie Young and Grazyna Auguscik. Matt leads the group, plays bass, and provides some slight backing vocals – and the mix of cello, violin, piano, clarinet, and flute is sublime throughout. Titles include "Gave Proof", "The Farm", "Innocent", "Black Squirrel", "Resilin", "When Everything Is Just The Same", "Viscous", "Seeker", "Sweet Bitter", and "Mary Shelly". CD

✨✧ Nicole Mitchell/Harrison Bankhead/Hamid DrakeIndigo Trio – Live In Montreal ... CD
Greenleaf, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hypnotic live set from the trio of Nicole Mitchell, Harrison Bankhead and Hamid Drake – 3 true leaders of the modern Chicago avant garde – and truly one of the finer new live albums we've heard in long time! Although this festival date from January '05 in Montreal is officially their first concert together as a trio, flautist Mitchell, bass player Bankhead and drummer/percussionist Drake have many years of experience playing together in alternate outfits – and that shows big time in the intuitive report throughout. Wonderful, wonderful work cut from the AACM cloth – and it's an impeccable sound recording, to boot! Titles include the trio-composed "Welcoming", "Thankfulness", "Forest Light" and "Velvet Lounge Bounce", plus an beautifully expansive take on Mitchell's "Afrika Rising" and her set closer "Stand Strong". CD
(Packaged in a beautiful cardboard sleeve!)

✨✧ Linda OhSun Pictures ... CD
Greenleaf, 2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from bassist Linda Oh – a very vivid set that definitely lives up to the pictures promised in the title! Oh's got this way of painting in sound that we really love – sometimes in a straighter jazz formation, sometimes with a more lyrical, open brush that really makes for magic in the music – an approach that few others could handle this way without falling into older cliches or overly-sentimental passages – but which Linda makes come across with the same sort of edge as her music with others. The group maintains the right sort of feel to realize Oh's vision – with Ben Wendel on trumpet, James Muller on guitar, and Ted Poor on drums – all very versatile players, especially Muller – whose tones really do a lot for the record. Titles include "Blue Over Gold", "Footfall", "Polyphonic HMI", "Shutterspeed Dreams", and "10 Minutes Till Closing". CD

✨✧ VariousBig Bang Presents The Italo Funk Experience – Synth Funk, Italo Exploitation & Espresso Jazz From Italy 1969 to 1980 ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really cool collection that's got way more to offer than you might guess from the Italo in the title – as the set's filled with obscure funk, jazz, and sound library gems from the 70s! Usually, we associate Italo with Italo Disco – that 80s version of club music that broke big around the world in many scenes. But the tracks here are sort of the "roots" of that version of Italo – the funky experiments of a generation before – which were often inspired by American jazz and soul of the time, but took things into a whole new dimension – thanks to the wide range of creative instrumentalists and unusual studios in Italy during the 70s! A few names are familiar here, and others are composers you might know from soundtracks – but together, the vibe is something else entirely – and something entirely great, thanks to wicked work from Big Bang/Arision Records, who put together the whole thing. Titles include "Aflogelia" by Narassa, "Open Space" by Piero Umiliani, "L'Eroe Di Plastica" by Tony Esposito, "Ore 24" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Pearls" by Piero Piccioni, "Five, Four, & Three" by Lee Konitz, "Lavoro Veloce" by Farlocco, "Louisville" by Made In USA, "Depressione" by Jazz Video, "Tip Cat" by Santucci Scoppa, and "Greenleaf Street" by Max Rocci & His Friends.
