Joe HendersonIn N Out (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A stone killer from the early Blue Note years of tenorist Joe Henderson – a key example of why the label had so much faith in him right from the start, and why Henderson's horn was quite different than so many other players of the 60s! There's a sharp edge here, but there's also a soulful sense of swing – that balance that Joe had more than most of his contemporaries – and which he only continued to develop as the years went on. Echoes of "new thing" modes lie in the background of the record, but upfront things have a sharp 60s Blue Note punch – thanks in part to a great lineup that also includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Henderson's tone is rough and young – but in a great way, one that's perfect for the exploratory nature of his original tunes on the set, and which matches the mood of Dorham's compositions as well. Tracks include "In N Out", "Short Story", "Brown's Town", and "Punjab". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe HendersonState Of The Tenor – Live At The Village Vanguard Vol 1 (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 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".

✨✧ Coke EscovedoComin' At Ya! ... LP
Mercury (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure brilliance from Coke Escovedo – an artist who really finds a way to make so many different things come together perfectly – with results that are even stronger than his previous work in Azteca and Santana! The set's got a warm blend of Latin roots, modern soul, and jazzy fusion – all produced by the great Pat Gleeson with the same sort of genre-bending care he brought to his own work as a musician! Gleeson makes things smooth and spacey, but never slick – really layering the sound at a level that's somewhere in the Mizell family territory, but with a bit of a different vibe. Coke's percussion is wonderful – and the set features vocals from Errol Knowles, plus backing from The Waters, and guest instrumentation from both Joe Henderson on tenor and Gabor Szabo on guitar. The whole thing's great, and titles include the sublime groover "I Wouldn't Change A Thing", a sweet remake of Willie Bobo's "Fried Neckbones & Some Home Fries", and the tracks "Back Seat", "Runaway", "Hangin On", "Somebody's Callin", and "Diamond Dust/Vida".

✨✧ Mulgrew MillerCountdown ... LP
Landmark, 1989. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great Joe Henderson joins pianist Mulgrew Miller for this wonderful album – lending his sharp-edged tenor tone to really make the session stand out from Miller's more common trio dates! Henderson and Miller both have a great ear for the darker side of the spectrum – hitting notes that are never too far out, nor too modern – but which have a rich sense of color that's really wonderful – a bottom-searching sort of feel that gives the album a hell of a lot of feeling! The rest of the quartet features Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams on drums – beautiful partners who are matched with years of experience, which they're only happy to bring to the date. Henderson sits out two numbers – "Ambrosia" and "Exact Change" – but sparkles strongly on the tracks "The Countdown", "Tetragon", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", "Crystal Palace", and "August Afternoon".

✨✧ Patrice RushenPrelusion ... LP
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set from Patrice Rushen – very different than her later R&B work from the 80s! The record's her first, and at the time, Patrice was much more of a jazz artist – working here with a cool west coast set of players (Joe Henderson on tenor, Hadley Caliman on alto and soprano, and Oscar Brashear on trumpet), playing a range of keyboards, from acoustic and electric piano, to ARP, and clavinet. The tracks are long, and have a wonderfully composed soul jazz vibe – feeling a heck of a lot like work on labels like Strata East, deeply dipping into a soulful bag that's solid and real, with no fakery or tricks to make the mood happen. Includes the nice moogy groover "Puttered Bopcorn", plus "Shortie's Portion", "7/73", and "Haw Right Now". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCelestial Blues – Cosmic, Political, & Spiritual Jazz 1970 to 1974 ... LP
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nat BirchallGuiding Spirit ... LP
Gondwana/Jazzman (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Side EffectSide Effect ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Side Effect's first album on Fantasy – a wonderful record that's partly soul, partly jazz vocals – and put together with a wickedly funky undercurrent, thanks to the talents of the mighty Wayne Henderson! Side Effect were way more than just another 70s harmony group – as their vocal approach was rooted in jazz, and really stretches out with a complicated vibe that Henderson not only respects perfectly, but finds a way to push nicely – thanks to some tight jazz funk instrumentation from heavyweights like Ronnie Laws, Joe Sample, Spider Webb, and Arthur Adams! Titles include "Oh Baby", "There She Goes Again", "Spend It On Love", "Tree Of Love", "Checkin It Out", and "I Love You So Much". LP, Vinyl record album
