David MurrayFlowers For Albert ... LP
India Navigation, 1976. Very Good+ ... $22.99
A classic set of loft jazz from a young David Murray – recorded during a European concert from 1977, with a sound that's looser and freer than Murray's later work! The group's a well-matched batch of players that includes Don Pullen on piano, Butch Morris on cornet, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Stanley Crouch on drums – working in a style that's warmly improvisational, yet still mostly rhythmic enough to swing. Titles include "Joanne's Green Satin Dress", "Ballad For A Decomposed Beauty", "Flowers For Albert", and "Roscoe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam & some light wear.)

David MurrayMurray's Steps ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1983. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the greatest gifts of the Soul Note label was the way that it could take sessions with avant-oriented players, and make them turn out straighter jazz material – but with a really nice edge! This session's a perfect example of that legacy – as it features David Murray at the head of a great group that includes Butch Morris on cornet, Bobby Bradford on trumpet, Henry Threadgill on alto and flute, Craig Harris on trombone, Curtis Clark on piano, Wilber Morris on bass, and Steve McCall on drums – all players who can usually improvise pretty freely, but who here work in a straighter, swinging mode that's totally great! There's still plenty of sharp edges in the record – odd twists and turns that really keep things offbeat, even though straight – and titles are extended Murray compositions that include "Sing Song", "Flowers For Albert", and "Murray's Steps". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light crease on one corner.)
