Dave Douglas with Aoife O'DonovanBe Still ... CD
Greenleaf, 2012. Used ... $7.99
Quite a compelling project from trumpeter Dave Douglas – a record that has him working strongly with singer/guitarist Aoife O'Donovan, whose presence really helps transform the sound of the set! Aoife's got a folksy touch on her vocals, and colors things in with some great earthy tones that are a surprisingly good fit for Douglas' lines on trumpet – sometimes jazzy, sometimes sparkling with a rich sense of American history – yet delivered in a subtle, linear way. The blend works a lot better than it sounds on paper – thanks to help from other musicians who include Jon Irabagon on tenor, Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda Oh on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums. Titles include "Barbara Allen", "Living Streams", "Be Still My Soul", "High On A Mountain", "God Be With You", and "This Is My Father's World". CD

Matt UleryIn The Ivory ... CD
Greenleaf, 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99 15.98
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

✨✧ Dave DouglasHigh Risk ... CD
Greenleaf, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dave Douglas is a man of many colors – all of them great, and painted with the rich hues we've come to expect from his work on trumpet! This time around, Dave's got a group with a fair bit of electric elements – so much so, that the few acoustic elements come from Douglas' work on trumpet, and some bass and drums. All other elements are improvised and electronic – which makes for a very unusual setting for Dave's trumpet – one that's still quite jazz-based, but which often draws a lot from the strong interplay between the horn and the backdrops – a bit like older work by musicians like Jon Hassell or Tomasz Stanko, but far more focused and expressive than either of them. Where others might use the setting to slide into too-mellow, too-sloppy styles, Dave seems to get even sharper than usual – and really wows us with his interaction with the group! Titles include "Cardinals", "Tied Together", "High Risk", "First Things First", and "Molten Sunset". CD

✨✧ Dave Douglas & Uri CainePresent Joys (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Greenleaf, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dave Douglas may well be one of the most collaborative musicians in jazz working today – yet even in a catalog rife with interesting combinations, this sweet little set really stands out – as it presents the trumpeter in one of the most intimate, lyrical settings we've heard in years! The record has a surprisingly poetic feel, even for Douglas – and all instrumentation comes from just his trumpet and the piano of Uri Caine – who plays in a style that's every bit as dynamic as his own recordings, but given a really special sort of focus here. Some of the music has spiritual overtones, but in a more ancient American way – and Douglas chose some of the tunes for their link to the tradition of shape-note singing. There's a gentle beauty to the record that's undeniable, and which has us appreciating Douglas all over again – and titles include "Old Putt", "Zero Hour", "Soar Away", "Ham Fist", "Bethel", and "Supplication".

✨✧ Rudy Royston303 ... CD
Greenleaf, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album as a leader from drummer Rudy Royston – a player we've enjoyed for years in the company of others, and one who emerges here with a really fresh voice of his own! Rudy's drums are bold, but also have this way of opening up and allowing magical interplay between all the other members of the group – a warm combo that features Jon Irabagon on saxes, Nadja Noordhuis on trumpet, Nir Felder on guitar, Sam Harris on piano, and either Mimi Jones or Yasushi Nakamura on bass. The guitar and piano combo is wonderful – ringing with these compelling chromes, especially on the tracks that feature Jones' wonderfully soulful work on bass. Most tracks are originals by Rudy – furthering the personal voice of the record – and titles include "Mimi Sunrise", "Play On Words", "Miles To Go", "Gangs Of New York", "High & Dry", and "Bownze".

✨✧ VariousBig Bang Presents The Italo Funk Experience – Synth Funk, Italo Exploitation & Espresso Jazz From Italy 1969 to 1980 ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... 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.
