Joe HendersonState Of The Tenor – Live At The Village Vanguard Vol 1 (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A real moment of genius for Joe Henderson from the 80s – a spare trio session, recorded live at the Village Vanguard, in a mode that recalls Sonny Rollins classic sets there for Blue Note! And while Sonny often performed heavily in a trio setting, unfettered by chords in the rhythm section – this is a unique date for Joe, and he sounds brilliant throughout! Ron Carter and Al Foster provide a crisp but elastic foundation for Henderson's burnished melodies and solos in a very spacious setting – and this first volume features the tracks "Beatrice", "Friday The Thirteenth", "Happy Reunion", "Loose Change", "Ask Me Now", and "Isotope".

✨✧ Joe HendersonInner Urge ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic session of 60s "new thing" jazz – and one of our favorite early records by Joe Henderson! The album features some incredibly hard playing from Joe – with a very dark edge to his solos that's nicely offset by McCoy Tyner's lyrical piano, and the supple rhythms of Bob Cranshaw and Elvin Jones. It's hard to look at the lineup and not feel this group is approaching the tunes in a very post-Coltrane mode, but Henderson's voice on the tenor is completely singular, and puts that short-sighted theory to rest with his first bold note of the session. The album features 5 numbers in all – 3 originals showcasing Henderson's strong songwriting "Inner Urge", "Isotope" and "El Barrio" – plus the great Duke Pearson ballad "You Know I Care" and the standard "Night & Day".

Grant GreenIdle Moments (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A warmly melodic session from Blue Note's greatest guitarist! The sound of the set's as evocative as the title – an idle moment of space between the notes, explored by Green's tight single-note work on guitar – and wonderfully supported by a lineup that includes Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, and Duke Pearson. Hutcherson and Pearson are always a treat together – bringing out the best exotic side of each other, and crafting a set of spiritually soulful grooves that are really great! The album's got 4 long tracks – exploratory and open, in the best manner of Green's mid 60s work – and titles include "Nomad", "Idle Moments", and "Jean De Fleur". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Idle Moments ... LP 24.99

Andrew HillBlack Fire (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Insanely wonderful music from Andrew Hill – a lean, stripped-down session that has Hill working at his firey best – in a space that's somewhere between the "new thing" recordings of Jackie McLean, and the brooding brilliance of Andrew's later Smokestack session! The group here has some key figures fleshing out the sound – a young Joe Henderson, blowing tenor with a very edgey quality – the very versatile Richard Davis on bass – and the great Roy Haynes on drums, very much at his most fluid interpretation of rhythm! The whole set's pretty darn great – one of the more mindblowing Blue Notes you'll ever hope to buy – and tracks include "Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Cantarnos", and "McNeil Island".

Andrew HillPoint Of Departure (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A classic "new thing" album recorded with the cream of Blue Note's avant 60s players – like Eric Dolphy, Joe Henderson, and Tony Williams – standing out with Hill as some of the most adventurous players for the label at the time! The album's awash with jagged piano likes from Hill – supported by a modernist 3 horn frontline of Henderson, Dolphy, and Kenny Dorham – skittishly working their way into territory that's never truly free, but wonderfully expressive and exploratory – a clear summation of the sense of "modern" in modern jazz! The set features 5 excellent Andrew Hill compositions, including "New Monastery", "Flight 19", and "Spectrum", "Dedication" and "Refuge". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCelestial Blues – Cosmic, Political, & Spiritual Jazz 1970 to 1974 ... LP
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Spiritual sounds from the source – a host of incredible tracks from a time when jazz was really opening up into new dimensions – as players stepped forward in a wave of strong post-Coltrane energy to really push the music into the skies! The music here can be seen as a blueprint for generations to come – styles that are now getting new fame in the hands of Kamasi Washington and some of his contemporaries, but which flowered first in recordings like these – pulled from the early 70s vaults of Prestige, Milestone, and Muse Records – and brought together here in a really wonderful collection! Tracks are all nice and long, and the set showcases an older generation of jazz musicians really flowering at the time – balanced perfectly between a sense of freedom and a spiritual soul – on titles that include "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz NTU Troop, "Let Us Go To Higher Heights" by Carlos Garnett, "The Almoravid" by Joe Chambers, "Brown Eyes" by Charles Earland, "Warriors Of Peace" by Azar Lawrence, "Aftermath" by Oliver Nelson, "Josie Black" by Hampton Hawes, "Let It Take Your Mind" by Bayete Umbra Zindiko, "Fire" by Joe Henderson and Alice Coltrane, and "The Free Slave" by Roy Brooks.

Nat BirchallGuiding Spirit ... LP
Gondwana/Jazzman (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The second album from the brilliant tenorist Nat Birchall – one of our favorite players of the past decade or so! This album's even more spiritual, more far-reaching than the first – an amazing batch of tracks that would be right at home during the glory days of the post-Coltrane Impulse Records scene – with a sound that reminds us of some of Joe Henderson's best work of the early 70s, particularly his moments on record with Alice Coltrane! All tracks have this long-flowing, slow-building energy that's really wonderful – slower than modal jazz, but with a similar pulse – and topped with this searing, searching tenor and soprano sax from Birchall – plus some guest trumpet from Matthew Halsall, an equally great musician who shares the Gondwana label with Nat. Other players include Rachael Gladwin on kora and harp, Adam Fairhall on piano, Gaz Hughes on drums and gong, Gavin Barras on bass, and Chris Manis on percussion. Titles include "Open Up The Gates", "Guiding Spirit", "Becoming", "Going To The Mountain", and "Higher Regions". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grant GreenSolid ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An excellent set by Grant Green – recorded in 1964, but not issued until close to 1980, when Blue Note first pulled it out of the vaults, and dropped it on the world! The session's a great one – with an unusual lineup that features Green's guitar in a sextet, with McCoy Tyner on piano, James Spaulding on alto, Joe Henderson on tenor, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a really wonderful group who help bring something different to the proceedings – helping showcase the great change in Green's second chapter for Blue Note. The album's got a mix of modal grooving and piano-driven hardbop – with a harder groove than some of Green's other non-organ sides for Blue Note. Titles include "Solid", "Minor League", "Ezz Thetic", "Grant's Tune" and "The Kicker". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke PearsonSweet Honey Bee ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A classic Blue Note groover – the funkiest album by Duke Pearson, and a killer batch of piano-heavy soul jazz tunes! Duke really blew out the box for this one – not only coming up with a great batch of original tunes, and playing them with an incredibly soulful touch – but also working with a top-shelf batch of players that includes Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, and James Spaulding! The great Mickey Roker is on drums, playing away with a nice scatter-shot modal mode that grooves in all the right parts – and titles include "Big Bertha", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Sudel", "Ready Rudy?", and "Empathy".

✨✧ Lee MorganSidewinder ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A jazz classic if there ever was one – and the best-selling album ever by Lee Morgan, thanks to the use of the title track in a car commercial! Sure, you've probably heard "The Sidewinder" enough that you think you know the album already – but the rest of the tunes really open up past that groover, into a realm of lyrical, soulful playing that's simply tremendous! The group on the record features Joe Henderson on tenor, Barry Harris on piano, Bob Crenshaw on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the album rolls along with a sense of perfect power that is every bit Blue Note at its best! Titles include "Sidewinder", "Gary's Notebook", "Hocus-Pocus", and "Totem Pole". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Larry YoungUnity ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A brilliant album that would forever change the way the organ was used in jazz! The set's the greatest contribution ever from organist Larry Young – a lean and modal session recorded with help from a young quartet that includes Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson, and Elvin Jones – all leaping and loping with Larry's free-thinking work on the Hammond – stretching things out into spiritual grooves that belie Young's fascination with Coltrane's sound of the time, and his freer fusion work of later years! The Hammond had never sounded soul mighty before – freed from the task of thumping out a deeper rhythm, and let loose to explore the same space carved out by Shaw and Henderson's horns! Titles include a classic reading of Woody's "Moontrane", plus "Zoltan", "If", "Beyond All Limits", and "Monk's Dream". Great great stuff, and one of the best-ever Blue Note sessions!
