Julie Kjaer/John Edwards/Steve NobleDobbeltgaeenger ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
Quite a powerful trio here – one that rumbles with the brilliant bass of John Edwards and skittish drums of Steve Noble – and which provides a perfect introduction to the striking alto sax talents of Julie Kjaer! Julie might have been on record before, but this set's the first time we're hearing her – and the introduction is a great one, as the album has her really making a mark with a unique way of phrasing and timing – in the groove one minute, leaping out the next – always with a sense of fire and improvisation that matches the other members of the trio. Kjaer's got a way of really eating up the mouthpiece when she wants – providing textural elements to her tones that are stunning – really fresh phrasing that continues to delight throughout. Titles include "Dear Mr Bee", "Pleasantly Troubled", "Alto Madness", "Out Of Sight", "Face", and "Dobbeltgaenger". CD

Terry Knight & The PackTerry Knight & The Pack ... LP
Lucky Eleven/Cameo, 1966. Good+ ... $9.99
A record that freaks out with some great fuzz right from the start – burning beautifully on the classic "Numbers", a tune that's every bit as much a pop-psych classic as work by Question Mark & The Mysterians! Other tracks are equally great and groovy, and do a wonderful job of mixing echoey production and freaked-out fuzz – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Lady Jane", "Sleep Talkin", "Got Love", "The Shut-In", "Where Do You Go", and "You're A Better Man Than I". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing! Cover has some wear.)

Lee Konitz & Bill EvansLive At The Half Note ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
A landmark recording – but never issued properly until this reissue! This rare live set was recorded in New York in 1959, and it features the unusual pairing of Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh with the Bill Evans trio of the time – Bill on piano (natch), Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Paul Motion on drums. Evans' warm, round lyricism is quite striking here – much more different backing than we're used to hearing behind Konitz and Marsh, although still with enough modern tones to make them feel right at home. There's a darkly brooding feel to the best numbers here, and most tracks stretch out far past the 5 minute mark – making for a 12 track set that offers over 90 minutes of music! Titles include "Lennie Bird", "April", "Just Friends", "Palo Alto", "317 E 32nd", "It's You Or No One", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", "Lennie-Bird", and "How About You?". CD

Steve LacySnips ... CD
Jazz Magnet, 1976. Used 2CD Gatefold ... $6.99
A key point in Lacy's career – his first solo concert ever in the US! Lacy had been well known on these shores for his early Monk-ish work on soprano sax, his later freer work with varying ensembles, and his frequent recorded "letters home" from the Paris scene of the early 70s – but the recordings on this 2CD set mark the first time that lacy played solo in the US, a mode that would frequently dominate his work as the 70s progressed. The sides date from 1976, and they show tremendous growth in Lacy's work – an astonishing ability to continually create on the soprano sax, in ways that are far more striking to our ears than even his group work of previous years. Titles include "Hooky", "The New York Duck", "7 Tao", "Pearl Street", and "Revolutionary Suicide". CD

Oliver LakeNTU – Point From Which Creation Begins ... LP
Passin' Thru/Arista, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
Reedman Oliver Lake at his most creative – stepping out here on a sublime set of 70s improvisations – all put together with a really spiritual feel! There's a very open, collaborative feel to the music – and the set was recorded in St Louis, at a time when Lake was a key part of that city's scene – and who here also seems able to attract some other musicians from the AACM in Chicago as well! As a result, the album's a wonderful document of the new ideas bursting forth at the start of the 70s – that richly creative moment when local scenes were coming together in various cities to find new ways of jazz beyond Coltrane and Dolphy – giving a player like Lake some of the most imaginative outlets of his career. Oliver plays alto, soprano, flute, and other small instruments – and other players include Baikida Carroll and Floyd Leflore on trumpets, Joseph Bowie on trombone, John Hicks on piano, Clovis Bordeaux on electric piano, Don Officer on bass, Charles Bobo Shaw on drums, and Don Moye on congas too. Titles include "Africa", "Tse Lane", "Eriee", "Zip", and "Electric Freedom". LP, Vinyl record album

Michael LargoGenius & Heroin –The Illustrated Catalogue Of Creativity, Obsession, & Reckless Abandon Through The Ages ... Book
William Morrow, 2008. New Copy ... $5.99 16.99
We're not users of the stuff, but we'll be the first to admit that heroin has played a big role in some of the creative endeavors that have really moved us over the years – from art to music, to poetry and prose – and a number of other forms as well! Yet heroin's just the starting point here – as author Michael Largo attempts to trace the line between substance abuse and cultural creation through dozens of key artistic figures – names as disparate as Caravaggio, Jack Kerouac, Jimi Hendrix, William S Burroughs, Kurt Cobain, Charlie Parker, and many more in between – all listed here in a format that's almost a dictionary of abuse – as the artists are lined up alphabetically, with sections that detail their important contributions, and the health issues that often drew a too-short end to their careers. If the whole thing sounds a bit cheap or gruesome, it's not – as Largo presents the material with a surprisingly thoughtful eye, and also looks at larger medical issues with the subjects that might have been part of their problems and creative process. 343 pages, softcover, with lots of black and white photos.

Tom LellisFlow ... CD
Beamtide, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
An excellent set from Tom Lellis – a jazz vocalist we've been digging since the 70s – as part of an elite group of really special singers that might include Mark Murphy or Kurt Elling – able to work in a jazzy style that's far more than just delivery of a lyric, with a sense of individuality that's always compelling! This album has Lellis in wonderful form – at a level that rivals all the greatness of his classic records, with a similar commitment to excellent material, and sublime small group presentation of the music – with instrumental energy that really matches his vocal phrasing of the words. Tom plays piano, keyboards, vibes, and guitar – and other musicians include Orlando Valle on flute, Toninho Horta on guitar, Dave Kikoski on piano, and Gary Fisher on piano and keyboards. Titles include a great blending of "Berimbau/Pomba Gira" – plus "Love Comes & Goes", "Tones For Joan's Bones", "Can It Be Done", "Waiting The Day", "Sea Aura", and "The Flow". CD

✨✧ Love Live LifeLove Will Make A Better You (Japanese pressing) ... CD
King/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. Used ... $14.99
A wild mix of free jazz and fuzzy rock – played by a groundbreaking Japanese group who mix flute and saxes with heavy Hammond and plenty of guitar! The album begins with the side-long "Question Mark" – a tune that breaches a really metaphysical question at the start, then really trips out with some free-jamming instrumentation. Other numbers are a bit more straight – and almost show a soul jazz influence at times – and the accented English language vocals almost make the set come off like some of those European post-beat sides that were a jamming mix of funk, soul, and rock. Titles include "Shadows Of The Mind", "Runnin Free", "Love Will Make A Better You", and "Facts About It All". CD

✨✧ Herbie MannMonday Night At The Village Gate ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Herbie makes one more trip back to the Village Gate – site of some of his most successful live recordings of the 60s, and a place where he always feels at home with a Latiny groove! But somehow, this album's even better than before – and has a hard Latin feel throughout, thanks to an ultra-hip group that includes Chick Corea on piano, Dave Pike on vibes, Mark Weinstein on trombone, and Bruno Carr on drums – plus some crackling work on congas from the legendary Carlos Patato Valdes! Tracks are long, and awash in great solos, especially from Herbie, who seems to play harder here than ever. Titles include "You're Gonna Make It With Me", "Away From The Crowd", "In Escambrun", and "The Young Turks". LP, Vinyl record album

MaximillianMaximillian ... LP
ABC, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A really messed-up blend of soul, rock, and blues – done in a style that's very much in keeping with the genre-busting Fillmore scene of the late 60s! Maximillian are a trio who run through Hendrix-like guitars, deep soul styled vocals, and bluesy riffing – often in the course of the same number – and the album's produced and arranged by Teddy Vann with a really wonderful approach that keeps things from getting too sloppy, and which propels the record forward without falling into the kind of traps that you'd get from other groups of this nature. Titles include "Moby's House", "The Road Rat", "Naked Ape", "Kickin 9 to 5", "Scar On My Memory", and "Little Amazon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Naked Ape". Cover has some surface wear and initials in pen on front.)
