✨✧ Barney Wilen/Manfred Schoof/Irene SchweizerJazz Meets India ... CD
Saba/Promising (Germany), 1967. Used ... $14.99
A landmark record – and most likely the best of the late 60s Jazz Meets The World series on MPS! The album features a unique ensemble comprised of a few core parts – The Indian Trio of Dewan Mothihar on sitar and vocal, Keshave Sathe on tabla, and Kusum Thakur on tambura; the Irene Schweizer Trio, here heard not as "out" as on other recordings, and with a contemplative, modal sound; and the jazz horns of Barney Wilen (tenor and soprano sax) and Manfred Schoof (trumpet and cornet) – adding in a level of improvisation on top of the rhythmic progression and sonic experimentation of the other two parts of the whole. The album's got three long tracks – "Yaad", "Brigach & Ganges", and "Sun Love" – all of which create a unique blend of Indian music, modal rhythms, and European jazz – somehow managing to filter all the elements together without any colonialist overtones, and coming up with a sound that's even greater than the sum of its parts!

✨✧ Mal WaldronHard Talk ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard talk, and lots of heavy sounds from the great Mal Waldron – heard here in a set that may well be one of his greatest moments of the 70s! The album's a key illustration of Waldron's power on the European scene of the time – and it's noteworthy not just for Mal's bold vision as a leader, but also for key contributions from Steve Lacy on soprano sax and Manfred Schoof on trumpet! Both artists really bring a lot to Waldron's music – filling up the long tracks with voices that are as powerful and righteous as the leader's own – spurred on by some great rhythm work from Isla Eckinger on bass and Allen Blairman on drums. Recorded live, with a great sense of energy – and titles include "Snake Out", "Hard Talk", "Russian Melody", and "Hurray For Herbie". CD
