✨✧ Billy ButlerNight Life ... LP
Prestige, 1971. Very Good ... $11.99
An album with a very different groove than usual for Billy Butler! On this set, his guitar seems to be processed through something that sounds a bit like a wah wah pedal – although we're not quite sure, and can't find any reference to the technology in the notes. It's got a sound that's a little compressed, with a mellow groove that's different than Billy's usual plucked notes – more flowing waves of sound that snake out slyly, and wrap themselves around some mellow rhythms from the rest of the combo. Players here include Jesse Powell on tenor (although Houston Person takes over in the role on one track) – plus Johnny Hammond Smith on organ, Bob Bushnell on Fender bass, and Jimmy Johnson on drums. Titles include "Nightlife", "Wave", "Watch What Happens", and "Peacock Alley". LP, Vinyl record album

Clark TerryIncomparable Clark Terry ... CD
Candid (UK), 1960/1961/1992/1993. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
A compelling collection of work from the late trumpeter Clark Terry – material from two different slices of his career, brought together in a really illuminating way! The first half of the album features tracks from Terry's early 60s sessions for the Candid label – not just work from his own great album with Seldon Powell and Yusef Lateef on tenor and flute, but also an especially great date with Cecil Taylor on piano, Archie Shepp on tenor, Steve Lacy on soprano, and Roswell Rudd on trombone – really showing Clark holding his own amidst these important modernists! The later work is equally nice – but in a very different way – a mature Terry blowing beautifully in a relaxed live setting, with players who include Seldon Powell on tenor, Jesse Davis on alto, and either Barry Harris, Roland Hanna, or Don Friedman on piano. Titles include "Jumpin Punkins", "Hackensack", "Jive At Five", "The Snapper", "Ow", "Flintstones", "Blues For Rebecca", "Rhythm Ride", and "Naystye Blues". CD
