✨✧ Stone AllianceStone Alliance (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great sharp edge he brought to his initial early recordings in the post-Coltrane years! But there's also a deeper sound going on here, too – a bit of funk, and definitely a bit of Latin in the percussion and basslines – which makes for these grooves that are as complicated as they are infectious – often given some sweet spiritual tones from the reeds on top! The lineup features Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums and percussion – all working together with tremendous energy, but a great focus too – always soulful, and never too jamming at all. Titles include the insane break track "Sweetie Pie", plus Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", "Duet", "King Tut", "Samba De Negro" and "Vaya Mulatto". CD
(Part of the Deep Jazz Reality series!)

Al FosterMixed Roots ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A stunning set funky 70s jazz! Drummer Al Foster leads the crew on this obscure Japanese session produced by Teo Macero – one that bursts out with a strong funky jazz groove that reminds us of some of the best drum-heavy electric 70s sessions in our collection, like work by Ed Thigpen or Les DeMerle. Players include Masabumi Kikuchi on electric piano, Mike Brecker and Sam Morrison on saxes, and Paul Metzke on guitar – and Teo Macero also sits in on the electric keys on one of the album's mellower cuts. There's not really any standout drum breaks that we caught on the set – but there are a lot of great choppy funk tracks in that "heavy drums meet riffing reeds" style that was started by Elvin Jones and popularized by Stone Alliance. Titles include "Mixed Roots", "Ya Damn Right", "Pauletta", "Double Stuff", and "Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde". CD

Jazzberry PatchJazzberry Patch ... CD
JBP/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $24.99
A funky electric jazz jam that's been lost for years – very heavy on the keyboards and filled with choppy sax riffs! The sound here is kind of a combination of the Groove Merchant style of the early 70s and some of the tighter intensity of Stone Alliance – as the group (like Stone Alliance) is only a trio, working with instrumentation that includes saxes, drums, and lots of groovy keyboards! The smallness of the group makes for a very sharp-edged sound – one that bristles with electricity, even on the acoustic instruments – and which still stays tight even on the few tracks that bring in other players and a bit of vocals. Mike Longo gives the combo plenty of props in the notes, and also plays some Fender Rhodes on the record – and titles include the massive 20 minute "Jazzberry Patch" jam, the funky vocal track "These Are My Friends", and cuts "Planed Off", "Over Easy", and "Sand N Your Blues".

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99 29.99
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle. The work here is wonderful – and thanks to this set, finally has gotten its place in the history book – as a key moment when so many different scenes came together, and made some of the most groundbreaking Latin grooves of the 20th century! The set's got a wonderful book that's really a primer to hip Latin sounds of the 70s – and vinyl part 1 features nine tracks that include "Las Negritas De Carnaval" by Charlie Palmieri, "Gumbo" by Cortijo Y Su Maquina Del Tiempo, "Babalonia" by Ricardo Marrero & The Group, "Amigos" by Stone Alliance, "Un Dia Bonita" by Eddie Palmieri and more.

✨✧ Last ExitNoise Of Trouble ... CD
Enemy (Japan), 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Why was it that the left end of jazz in the 80s often produced some of the most unexpected alliances? Perhaps it was because it was so tough to gig and earn on one own's creative vision that it made more sense to play together with other leaders. Or perhaps the dearth of really creative music in the mainstream made more avant players try to fill the void. Whatever the case, this album's a very typical batch of 80s avant – featuring the unlikely alliance of Peter Brotzmann, Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Sonny Sharrock, all playing with noisy whimsy on tracks like "Panzer Be Bop", "Blind Willie", "Straw Dog", and "Pig Cheese".

✨✧ Dave BrubeckStardust (Brubeck Desmond/Dave Brubeck Quartet) ... CD
Fantasy, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A Dave Brubeck/Paul Desmond double header – two vintage albums in a single package! Stardust is great stuff from the early days of the Brubeck/Desmond alliance – when Dave's piano had first met up with Paul's alto, with incredible results that would soon transform the face of popular jazz. The set's mostly standards – but it does include 2 strong originals, "Crazy Chris" and "Lyons Busy", as well as some Brubeck-ized versions of tunes like "Frenesi", "Mamselle", and "At A Perfume Counter". Dave Brubeck Quartet is sublime early work from pianist Dave Brubeck – already recording here with the amazing Paul Desmond on alto sax – in the kind of magical blend that would bring both players great fame by the end of the 50s! Even at this early point, the subtle modern touches are perfectly in place – that blend of space, sound, color, and tone that made the Brubeck/Desmond team so unique – recorded here without any other gimmicks or trappings to get in the way. The set mostly features shorter versions of standards – including "Stardust", "Just One Of Those Things", "Alice In Wonderland", and "All The Things You Are" – but it also features an amazing 14 minute take on "At A Perfume Counter", with really extended solo lines from Desmond!
