Keith JarrettByablue ... LP
Impulse, 1976. Very Good+ ... $6.99
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Most of the tunes are shorter compositions built around gently lyrical lines – somewhat introspective, and a bit less organic than in years past – but in a way that more than makes up for that difference with their own inner beauty. Titles include "Konya", "Rainbow", "Trieste", "Fantasm", "Yahllah", and "Byablue". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettFacing You ... LP
ECM, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A key early moment for Keith Jarrett – his first-ever solo album, recorded in the early 70s for ECM – and the start of a huge legacy of later work! Before this set, Jarrett had recorded some compelling trio material for Atlantic – and he was also exploring more spiritually soulful tones over at Impulse Records too. But this record is something else entirely – a new showcase for his sensitive expressions – the kind of angular, yet poetic lines that sparkled strongly in the trio recordings, yet stand out even more on their own! Tunes are beautifully penned – and titles include "In Front", "Ritooria", "Lalene", "Starbright", "Vapallia", and "Semblence". LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1973. Used ... $6.99
Great Impulse work from Keith Jarrett – recorded at a time when he had a lot sharper edge than later years, and was really matching the spirit of some of the post-Coltrane generation players on the label! The date's a live one, and features some relatively extended tracks – tunes that aren't exactly free, but which roll along with a very open sensibility – almost growing organically in sound from contributions by all players! Jarrett's on piano, of course – and other members of the group include Dewey Redman on tenor and Chinese Musett, Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums, and Danny Johnson on percussion – all working wonderfully together. Titles include "De Drums", "Fort Yawuh", "(If The) Misfits (Wear It)", and "Still Life Still Life". CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettMourning Of A Star ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good ... $4.99
Keith Jarrett's really pushing himself here – playing piano with some of the freewheeling qualities that would make him a huge new talent in the 70s, and also picking up some other instruments as well! Although the set's billed to a trio – Jarrett with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – the overall sound is way more than just your usual piano record, thanks to Keith's use of soprano sax, steel drums, congas, and tape recorder – elements that fill the tunes in alongside his piano, and create some really surprising moments. Some tracks are beautifully warm and personal – the kind of lyrical modes that could have made Jarrett a huge mainstream act, had he ever wanted to be more overtly commercial – and these are balanced nicely with the more experimental numbers, to keep a nice edge in the set. Titles include a nice version of Joni Mitchell's "All I Want", plus originals by Jarrett that include "Standing Outside", "Traces Of You", "Trust", "Interlude No 3", and "Mourning Of A Star".

Keith JarrettMysteries ... LP
Impulse, 1976. Very Good ... $2.99
Dark and moody work from Keith Jarrett – a record that builds strongly off his ensemble feeling of the Impulse years, but which also seems to carry a bit more of the introspective vibe he was building up in some of his more stripped down solo recordings! The group's still a great one here – with Dewey Redman on reeds, Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums, and Guilhermo Franco on percussion – and the tunes, although long and somewhat free, still show Jarrett's great ear for a lyrical melody – carried off wonderfully without cliche, and still with more sharp edges than you might expect. Titles include "Rotation", "Everything That Lives Laments", "Flame", and "Mysteries". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Jarrett's numerous solo piano recordings for ECM, and one that actually predates the watershed Koln Concert set.

Keith JarrettSomewhere Before ... CD
Vortex (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, nor is he trying to go out of his way to make the world known of his presence – and instead, he's got a simple, subtle approach to the keys that's filled with tenderness and gentle tones – but not in a way that's hokey or overly sentimental. There's certainly echoes here of 60s work by Steve Kuhn, and of earlier records by Vince Guaraldi – but Jarrett also hints at a bold power underneath that seems likely to break out at every turn. The album's a live recording, with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – and titles include "A Moment For Tears", "Pout's Over", "My Back Pages", "Pretty Ballad", "Moving Soon", "Old Rag", and "Dedicated To You".

ECM, 1986. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
Wonderful trio work from Keith Jarrett – a format that the pianist returned to strongly in the 80s, after really breaking fresh ground as a solo artist in the 70s! The music here is hardly the trio styles of most of Jarrett's contemporaries, as there's lots of lessons learned from the freewheeling solo years, which come strongly into play with the performances from all group members – not just Keith's amazing tone and phrasing on the piano, full of gentle soul and life – but also the sublime bass work of Gary Peacock, and the defter-than-usual drums of Jack DeJohnette. The whole thing's wonderful – very transformative – and tunes include "Late Lament", "I Remember Clifford", "The Song Is You", "When I Fall In Love", and "Autumn Leaves" – all in very long, very unusual versions.

Ultra-hip work from pianist Keith Jarrett – a session that's filled with joy and life, and which has a lot more energy than some of his albums for ECM! The work here is kind of a refinement of the freer styles that Jarrett had laid down on previous albums – performed with a strongly rhythmic undercurrent, but one that also opens up to some strong top-end melodies as well – played not only by Jarrett on piano, but also by Dewey Redman on tenor, in a group with Sam Brown on guitar, Paul Motian on drums, and Guilherme Franco and Danny Johnson on percussion. Titles include "The Rich & The Poor", "Blue Streak", "Le Mistral", "Angles Without Edges", "Treasure Island", and "Sister Fortune". CD

ECM, 1989. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
A great early trio moment from Keith Jarrett – a set that steps off some of his previous Standards albums for ECM, but which also has more of a personal flavor as well! The group here is that great combo with Gary Peacock on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both really open, fluid players who make the music really sparkle alongside Jarrett's piano – offering up tunes that are mostly standards, but in really unique variations! The album's a tribute to key musical heroes – Lee Konitz, Jim Hall, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and others – but the overall sound is pure Jarrett all the way through, on titles that include "Lover Man", "Solar", "Sun Prayer", "Little Girl Blue", "U Dance", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", and "All The Things You Are".

ECM, 2009. Used ... $6.99
The Keith Jarrett trio can take just about any tune and make it their own – as you'll hear in this wonderful set that has the group still going strong, well into the 21st Century! As with some of their previous outings, the tunes here are mostly familiar standards, but played with a fluid, open quality that's really unique – Keith himself blocking out these waves of sound that approximate the melody, but really extrapolate from it – Gary Peacock handling the bass with these round, extended tones that seem to wrap up the whole group together – and Jack DeJohnette as a master of understatement, yet making these really important inflections all the time as well. Titles include "Shawnuff", "Yesterdays", "Strollin", "A Sleepin Bee", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

✨✧ AirtoFree ... LP
CTI, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". LP, Vinyl record album

Warren BernhardtFloating ... CD
Novus/Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful album from pianist Warren Bernhardt – maybe one of his most introspective sets of the early years, and one with a fantastic close-up focus on his acoustic piano talents! Despite Bernhardt's presence in a late 70s scene that featured many fusion artists, his most sensitive side often seemed to be in his work on acoustic piano – which is on full display here, on a set of tracks that are mostly solo, and which have this very unique voice. Bernhardt's got some of the flowing lyricism of Keith Jarrett, but also brings things in more sharply – letting his more open moments mix with tuneful passages in this really great way – and leaving us breathless at his ability to do so much with so little, yet all in a very understated way. Titles include "Metrics", "Mirror", "Song To My Father", "Snow Birds", and "Floating". CD

Jon DavisHappy Juice ... CD
Posi tone, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Top shelf jazz trio from pianist Jon Davis – an artist who might look pretty laidback, sipping wine on the cover – but who serves up some great original material as well as key takes on some classics! Working with bassist Boris Kozlov and drummer Mark Ferber on this one, Davis earnestly sets out to pay homage to the 60s modern piano jazz genius of his five favorite players – and also manages to really show some of his own best work – a really impressive feat! The originals shine brightly – including "Happy Juice", "Slant Six", "As We Know", "Bred On Read" and "Mostly Minor" – and fit in seamlessly with the nods to classics by Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner and Keith Jarrett – including "The Two Lonely People", "Tones For Joans Bones", "Speak Like A Child", "Search For People" and "Rainbow". Wonderful stuff! CD

✨✧ Don FriedmanFlashback ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1963. Used ... $6.99
There's nothing "flashback" about this one – because the record's about as in-the-moment as you could be for jazz piano in the early 60s! Don Friedman's a really tremendous player at this point in his career – a sometimes unsung hero in the space between Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett – and one who played with the sensitivity of the former and some of the pre-cliche sense of freedom of the latter. There's a fresh voice to nearly all the tunes on the set – even when they're not originals – and Don has a way of making the keys of the piano step forth in waves of sound that are subtle, but seductive – although not in any too-romantic or too-flowery ways. Rhythm is by Dick Kniss on bass and Dick Berk on drums – on titles that include "News Blues", "Flashback", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "Ochre", and "Ballade In C Sharp Minor". CD

Pentti Lahti/Olli Ahvenlahti & Eero Ojanen/MirceaJazz Liisa 11 & 12 ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A huge amount of unreleased tracks from the Finnish scene of the 70s! Jazz Liisa 11 features some of the deepest work so far on this excellent series of Finnish jazz from the 70s – a set that begins with some strong work from saxophonist Pentti Lahti – who works here with a cool combo that's heavy on Fender Rhodes and piano from Olli Ahvenlahti, whose way of shaping the tunes really brings in a lot of soul! Lahti blows tenor, soprano, and baritone sax – one on each of the album's three tracks – and the group also featuers Mircea Stan on trombone, Ikka Willman on bass, and Tapani Nappi Ikonen on drums. The set begins with a sweet Fender Rhodes take on Curtis Fuller's "12 Inch", and ends with a funky keyboard original, "Valahia" – which is pure CTI. In between is a great mellow acoustic take on "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square", which lets you here Lahti soloing openly on baritone. The second half of the set is just piano – haunting acoustic duets between Olli Ahvenlahti and Eero Ojanen – warm, open, and really beautifully flowing! The duo take on Keith Jarrett's "In Your Quiet Place", and also do an encore of that track – and also play the original "Aino". Jazz Liisa 12 is a great double-header of unreleased jazz from Finland! Side one features trombonist Mircea Stan – a player we admit that we don't know much at all, but who's beautifully suited for a warm fusion groove – in a way that few of his contemporaries on his instrument can match! Mircea blows here with Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano from Olli Ahvenlahti – in a style that's like Olli's own wonderful work – and his trombone lines have a way of slow-shaping over the electricity that's maybe a bit like the wonderful Japanese trombonist Shigeharu Mukai – whose records from the mid 70s feel a lot like the work here. The group also has excellent flute, alto, and soprano sax from Pentti Lahti – whose music is always a treat, and whose sharper sound offsets the trombone nicely. Pekka Sarmanto plays bass and Tapani Nappi Ikonen is on drums – and titles include "Ornament", "Coming Home", and "Something". The second half of the set features two of the same key players – Stan and Ahvenlahti – working in a group led by Jukka Rudohomaki, who plays a Putney synth, with lots of great analogue electronic elements! Ahvenlahti's also on mini-moog – which makes for a very moogy sound overall, which turns out to be a great match for Stan's trombone phrasing too – on the long title "Talviunesta Heraaminen". CD

Paul MotianConception Vessel ... CD
ECM, 1973. Used ... $8.99
Paul Motian didn't always record that much as a leader, but the dates under his own name are always compelling ones – and quite a change from his more famous work with Bill Evans! This set is a sparkling showcase of original tunes by Motian – played by a shifting array of players that includes Charlie Haden on bass, Sam Brown on guitar, Keith Jarrett on piano and flute, and Leroy Jenkins on violin – all with a much freer, more out sound than you might expect to hear on ECM in later years. The set's one of the standouts from the time when the label was nodding more in the free jazz directions of some of their European contemporaries – and Motion proves to be a surprisingly great choice for the session. Titles include "Georgian Bay", "Ch'I Energy", "Rebica", "Conception Vessel", and "American Indian Song Of Sitting Bull". CD

Howard RileyConstant Change 1976 to 2016 (5CD set) ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 1976/1980/Mid 80s/2016. New Copy 5 CDs ... $45.99
The title's a great one for this overstuffed set of work by Howard Riley – not because the pianist is always changing the style of his music, but because in a single performance, his space on the keys is constantly shifting – never at rest, and always open into boundless territory of exploration – at a level that continues to make Riley one of the most impressive piano talents of his generation! At some level, Howard has the sense of freedom that you'd find in the music of Cecil Taylor – but he also has a commitment to tunefulness and inherent structure that's also quite different – almost in a way that could make Riley a sort of more avant Keith Jarrett, when Jarrett's in his solo improvising mode – but with sounds, textures, and colors that go far beyond any sort of simplistic label. This package features some of the most beautiful work we've heard from Riley in one place – almost all of it previously unreleased, save for some 80s tracks that only ever saw issue on cassette – and the 5CD package features six titles recorded in Paris in 1976, three recorded in Hungary in 1980, thirteen more recorded in the Porcupine Studios in London – in 1983, 1985, and 1987 – and three different variations on "Mutability" – each around the space of an hour, recorded in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

The pair mostly duet on pianos, but also use some electronics, too – with a style that's spacious, but warm – very much in the best spirit of some of the more acoustic Roedelius moments from the early 80s – a time when his piano work was almost like an underground answer to Keith Jarrett's improvisations. There's more structure here, but still the same sense of openness – and titles include "Neris", "Ybbs", "On The Fly", "Rolling", "Wiese", "Wehra", "Sula", "Restonica", "Piave", and "Finne". CD

Matthew Shipp's been an amazing pianist for quite sometime – but occasionally, we'll forget how great he can be – and it takes a record like this to jog our memory! The set is all solo, with Shipp exhibiting an amazing command of the keyboard – really reaching out to shape sound in special ways, and often create these progressions that hint towards melody, but often step sideways into their own sonic territory – free, but never too loose – showing the confidence of Shipp in the direction he's taking the music! And while sometimes such a setting can make us think that the pianist is just winding us up, there's a real sense of cohesion here – maybe almost in the territory of some of the Keith Jarrett live solo improvisations, although each selection here is relatively short. Titles include "Blue In Orion", "Monk's Nightmare", "Intro Z", "Pocket", "Gamma Ray", "Piece Within Piece", and "Fairplay". CD

ECM, 1976. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A killer ECM debut from Kenny Wheeler – a real standout in the label's classic 70s run, and a record that's overflowing with soul and feeling! Wheeler had already made a number of key recordings by the time of this ECM set, but the label's approach seems to unlock something new in his playing – a deeper sensitivity, yet never in the slower, too-open way of other ECM players – almost an Art Farmer sort of approach to the flugelhorn, which he uses exclusively on this set. The tracks are all quite long, but very focused and flowing – with key rhythmic support from the trio of Keith Jarrett on piano, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all of whom are happy to put their own agendas aside, and let Wheeler's magnificent lines direct the album's sound.

The album was co-produced by Roberta Flack, and features a core group of players that includes David Spinozza on guitar, Keith Jarrett or Ray Bryant on piano, and Paul Griffin on organ – plus backings by the Dixie Hummingbirds on a number of tracks. The sound is a mixture of southern soul and urban rootsy – with a few numbers arranged by Flack, and a mixture of secular and spiritual tunes that includes "My Sweet Lord", "He Ain't Heavy", "Turn Turn Turn", "This Generation Shall Not Pass", "Heaven Help Us All", "Make Peace With Yourself", and "Danger Zone".

Charles Lloyd in the Soviet Union – blowing beautifully on an open-ended set that must have really loosened things up in Red Square! The album features Lloyd at his freewheeling 60s best – working in his group with Keith Jarrett on piano, Ron McClure on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – on some of those great long, very open numbers they do so well! Lloyd plays both tenor and flute – both with strongly spiritual tones that work great with the modal touches of the rhythm section – and titles include "Days & Nights Waiting", "Sweet Georgia Bright", "Love Song To A Baby", and "Tribal Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles LloydForest Flower ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A famous album – and for good reason too! The set's something of a landmark in spiritual jazz from the 60s – and it features a classic live performance from Charles Lloyd, recorded at the Monterey Jazz Festival – almost as a distillation and popularization of ideas that were brewing in the music of John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, and others! The group here features a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all flowing magnificently with Lloyd's work on tenor and flute – in an open-ended groove that draws on modal rhythms for inspiration, and which features solos that stretch out, but never go "outside"! The classic performances of "Forest Flower" takes up all of side one – with a dreamy drifting quality that has Jarrett at his best – and side two features a version of his "Sorcery", plus McBee's "Song Of Her", and a version of "East Of The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, and a spot of tape.)

✨✧ Charles LloydJourney Within ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great 60s moment not just for reedman Charles Lloyd, but also for pianist Keith Jarrett – who was a key part of Charles' group for a few years at the time – and who really opens up on this classic set! Tracks are long and very open – reaching in a spiritual sort of way with definite Coltrane overtones, yet also showing that more complexly rhythmic mode that made Lloyd a standout in previous groups before he was a leader – a quality that's really augmented by the presence of Jack DeJohnette on drums! Lloyd plays both tenor and flute – and Jarrett switches to soprano sax on one number! Titles include"Journey Within", "Love No 3", "Memphis Green" and "Lonesome Child". CD

✨✧ Charles LloydSoundtrack ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer from the Charles Lloyd group of the late 60s – a set that still stretches out with all the spiritual energy of Lloyd's other Atlantic albums, yet also seems to have a bit more of a groove, too! The setting is live, and the tracks are nice and long – allowing ample room for solos by Lloyd on tenor and flute and Keith Jarrett on piano – working here with great accompaniment from Ron McClure on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums. Titles include a massive take on "Sombrero Sam" – done in a nice Latin groove, and very upbeat – plus the spiritual "Voice In The Night", and the cuts "Pre-Dawn" and "Forest Flower 69". CD
