Luiz BonfaLuiz Bonfa – Composer Of Black Orpheus Plays & Sings Bossa Nova ... CD
Verve, 1962. Used ... $3.99
One of the earliest of the classic Verve bossa nova sessions of the 60s – and a wonderful showcase for the talents of guitarist Luiz Bonfa! Most of Bonfa's previous recordings were done in a very spare or solo mode – and this set makes a nice change by adding in some larger orchestrations – yet still handled with great bossa sensitivity by Oscar Castro Neves and Lalo Schifrin – themselves very big up-and-coming talents at the time! The sound is bright and breezy, as you'd expect from Verve at this time – and Bonfa's a lot livelier than usual, and even sings on a number of cuts – with a charming quality that's a bit like Joao Gilberto. Titles include "Bossa Nova Cha Cha", "Sambalamento", "Vem So", "Samba De Duas Notas", "Domingo A Noite", "Quebra Mar", and "Adeus". CD

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiCast Your Fate To The Wind – Jazz Impressions Of Black Orpheus ... LP
Fantasy, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful record of light, lyrical piano jazz – and one of the best-selling jazz albums ever on Fantasy Records! Vince Guaraldi started the set as a tribute to the film Black Orpheus – and some of the album features his nice renditions of Jobim/Bonfa tunes like "Manha De Carnaval" and "Samba De Orpheus". However, Guaraldi also managed to pen his own amazing track – "Cast Your Fate To The Wind" – a lyrical romping piano instrumental that went onto become a huge charting instrumental hit during the 60s. The track's been heard a million times over the years, but it's still pretty darn great – and it's surrounded in a nice set with other tunes that have the same feel – including "O Nosso Amour", "Alma-Ville", "Since I Fell For You", and "Moon River".

Donald Byrd & John JenkinsStar Eyes (aka Jazz Eyes) ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great little session – an oft-overlooked gem from Savoy's legendary hard bop years of the 50s – reissued many years later with an added bonus track! Altoist John Jenkins leads the session – which also features Donald Byrd – who gets co-billed as leader on this reissue, plus Curtis Fuller, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor – and with a lineup like that, you can hardly miss! The set grooves like one of the best edgy Prestige blowing sessions from the time – long tracks, lots of room for solos, and a surprising coherency that really drives the whole thing. Features the 4 longish tracks from the original LP – "Orpheus", "Honeylike", "Rockaway", and "Star Eyes", plus a take of "Darn That Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Bill DavisMidnight To Dawn ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice live cooker from Wild Bill Davis! This album was recorded at Grace's Little Belmont, a club in Atlantic City in 1967, a place where organist Davis had played almost every summer for over twenty years. He is joined by Clayton Robert Brown on tenor sax, James "Dickie" Thompson on guitar and Robert Joseph Durham on drums. Some of the tracks are Davis or Davis and Bob Brown originals and they include "Let It Be", "Adoration", and "Up Top". Other songs are "Manha de Carnaval" from Black Orpheus, "Jive Samba", "Soft Winds", "Little Tracy", "Straight No Chaser", and "Cute" among others. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Vince Guaraldi & Bola SeteLive At El Matador ... LP
Fantasy, 1966. Sealed ... $19.99
A hip little live date from the team of Vince Guaraldi and Bola Sete – one that's a bit heavier on Vince's piano than Bola's guitar – but in a way that's a-OK with us! There's a sweetly gliding sensibility to the whole set – that warm lyricism and subtle soul that Guaraldi always brought to his own 60s gems for Fantasy Records – a style made most famous by his work on the Peanuts cartoons at the time, but which comes off with an even deeper vibe here. There's a bit of rhythm backing behind the players – although that's also somewhat gentle too – and titles include long versions of "Favela" and "More", plus the "Black Orpheus Suite" – and the tracks "El Matador", "I'm A Loser", and "People". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed pressing – probably 70s, as there's no barcode. Cvoer has a cut corner, and another slightly bumped corner.)

Johann JohanssonOrphee ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A beautiful re-interpretation of the myth of Orpheus – handled here by composer Johann Johannsson in a beautiful style that recalls some of the best Deutsche Grammophon projects from Max Richter! The composer plays a variety of keyboards – including electric and pipe organ – in shifting settings that either feature the American Contemporary Ensemble's strings, the cello of Hildur Guonadottir, the AIR Lyndhurst String Orchestra, or the shifting Theater Of Voices conducted by Paul Hillier – all musical elements which are sampled and used carefully alongside Johannsson's keyboards and a bit of electronics – with results that seem to take the generation of 4AD and advance it more than a few steps with a new sort of complexity and emotional depth. The blend of the compositional and personal here is wonderful – maybe even more so than in Richter's work – and titles include "A Pile Of Dust", "Flight From The City", "The Radiant City", "Fragment II", "The Burning Mountain", "Good Morning Midnight", and "Orphic Hymn".

Fumio KarashimaMy Favorite Things ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most spiritual albums we've heard in years from pianist Fumio Karashima – a set that has the Japanese jazz legend working with a host of different guests, including some horn players who really give his music some depth! The choice of material is great – and Karashima eschews most of his own compositions for work by Herbie Hancock, Duke Pearson, Jimmy Heath, Bobby Hutcherson, and others – given lively readings by an ensemble who really know how to burst out at the front, then soar with these very strong solos. The album features a great reading of "My Favorite Things", with a unique use of two bassists; a spare duet with trumpeter Terumasa Hino on "Black Orpheus"; guest work from guitarist Kazumi Watanabe on "Chan's Song"; and nice takes on "So Near So Far", "Gingerbread Boy", "Subtle Neptune", and "Jeannine".

Ramsey Lewis TrioBossa Nova ... CD
Argo/MCA (Japan), 1962. Used ... $6.99
One of the most unique albums from Ramsey Lewis' early years at Chess Records – a spare set of bossa groovers that has the Lewis trio with Eldee Young and Redd Holt augmented by added Brazilian percussion and guitar! The sound is spare, sharp, and soulful – and the record's one of the first small combo bossa dates like this in the US – a 1962 effort that even predates most of Verve's better known bossa jazz albums of the 60s, and which matches their groovy energy wonderfully. The record's quite an unusual one for Lewis, and it's further proof that the trio with Young and Holt was an incredibly dynamic outfit! Two tracks on the album – "A Noite Do Meu Bem" and "Cara De Palhacao" – feature vocals, by Carmen Costa and Josef Paulo, respectively – and other tracks are all instrumental, and include "Samba De Orpheus", "O Pato", "Roda Moinho", "Roda Moinho", and "Cancao Para Geralda".

Bola SeteBola Sete At The Monterey Jazz Festival ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
A killer set of grooves recorded live by this legendary Brazilian guitarist – and a record of his that we've always sold extremely well over the years! The setting is a stripped down stage at the Monterey Jazz Festival – where Sete grooves in an open-ended fashion with only bass and drums behind him. The best track on here is "Soul Samba", a nice little groover with good drumming by Paulinho (Magalhaes) – and the LP also features an extended medley of tracks from Black Orpheus, plus an original called "Flamenco". Nice and jazzy, with a good tight bossa groove. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ramsey LewisDancing In The Street ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late 60s groover from the second Ramsey Lewis trio – the one that features Cleveland Eaton on bass and Maurice White on drums, both doing a pretty great job of filling the spot vacated by Eldee Young and Red Holt! The album's a live one, cut in the successful mode of Ramsey's records with the Young/Holt group – mostly featuring familiar numbers transformed by the Lewis Trio's hard-grooving approach to their work! It's great to hear Maurice White in a pre-Earth Wind & Fire jazz setting – and the album's got a slightly more open sound than some of Ramsey's earlier live dates – especially on the Brazilian tinged numbers that include "Mood For Mendes", "Corcovado", and "Medley From Black Orpheus". Other tracks include "Struttin Lightly", "Dancing In The Street", "You Don't Know Me", and "What Now My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cal TjaderCal Tjader At Grace Cathedral ... LP
Fantasy, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the fantastic electric Cal Tjader sessions from the 70s – with that mixture of vibes and electric piano that made his work of the time take on an even funkier sound than before! Lonnie Hewitt's at the keyboards here – and he's got a sly, slinky groove that's totally great – a sound that's even more spacious than Tjaders' vibes, and which seems to push Cal into a whole new space in sound. The rest of the group includes Rob Fisher on acoustic bass, Pete Riso on drums, and the great Pancho Sanchez on congas – who further helps hold down the Latin side of the sound. Titles include a stellar 12 minute reading of Cal's "I Showed Them", which is pure funk all the way through – plus "Bluesology", "Body & Soul", and the extended "Black Orpheus Medley".

✨✧ VariousVery Best Of Vee Jay Jazz Vol 2 ... CD
Vee Jay/Collectables, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing jazz from Vee Jay Records – a label that's usually best remembered for its contributions to soul and blues music, thanks to its placement on the postwar Chicago scene – but an imprint that also recorded some excellent jazz material back in the day – really hard-hitting soul jazz and razor-sharp hardbop, very much on a par with the best Blue Note or Prestige work of the time! This overstuffed series is filled with wonderful jazz cuts from the label – including some rare alternate takes, too – and this second volume features 15 tracks that include "Brother Spike" by MJT + 3, "Mack The Knife" by Wayne Shorter, "Spartacus" by Eddie Harris, "Sermonette" by Nat Adderley, "Dear Ann" by Paul Chambers, "Teef" by Louis Hayes, "Cousin Mary" by Buddy DeFranco, "Black Orpheus" by Wayne Shorter, "On Stage" by Wynton Kelly, "Blues For Big Scotia" by Eddie Higgins, and "Jugging Around" by Benny Green.

SAJ/FMP (Germany), 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pretty fierce stuff from this German all-sax group that includes Alfred Harth as the major writer, arranger, and soloist. The record has a fair number of short tracks, but they have an incredibly dense and loud sound – and redd players include Max Eipp, Thomas Conrad, Chris Becker, Gerhard Gugel, Florian Nikel, Robert Sprun, Ole Schmidt, Michael Kloss, and others. Titles include "Theme Fur Orpheus", "Halloween Fantasies", "Unisono", "Harth Rock" – and versions of Trane's "Giant Steps" and Zappa's "Sofa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ In The TraditionSirius ... CD
AFJ, 2012. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from one of the hippest groups in the contemporary underground – Detroit's In The Tradition, a combo with a righteous sound that takes us back to the 70s days of Strata East and Tribe Records! This double-length set is a bold step forward for the group – as some tracks feature their own music, done in a spiritual blend of sounds that's really wonderful – tunes that spin out with long modal rhythms, soaring solos, and a very soulful energy that never lets up – with lots of echoes of the best Chicago and Detroit modes from years back. The other tracks features more work by other jazz greats – Wayne Shorter, Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, and others – reinterpreted by the group in wicked blend of hardbop and soul jazz modes – simply brilliant, and like getting two excellent albums together in a single package – with a really unified sound! Titles include "She Sings To The Wind", "Winter Meeting", "Noloyiso", "Trouble Of The World", "One Love", "Black Orpheus", "Chantized", "Crisis", and "Dreams". CD

✨✧ Paul DesmondTake Ten (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's "Take Ten", not "Take Five" – a great title cut that echoes Paul Desmond's previous work with Dave Brubeck – but which then gives way quickly to some sweet bossa-styled grooves done with guitar from Jim Hall! The album's one of the strongest of the Hall/Desmond collaborations for RCA – A sublime showcase not just for Paul's impeccable alto, but also for the amazing tones and chromes that fly freely from the strings of Jim's guitar! Both players are set up with just a bit of gentle backing – light percussion from Connie Kay, and a bit of bass from Gene Cherico or Gene Wright. The whole thing's a well-conceived study in economy, as the two players craft sly and subtle lines around spare drum and bass backings – slowly hanging sound in space to weave a rich web of sound that's as compelling as it seems to be effortless! Titles include "Take Ten", "El Prince", "Embarcadero", "Samba De Orfeu", "Theme From Black Orpheus", and "Alone Together". CD also features alternate takes of "Embarcadero" and "El Prince". CD

Miles DavisMiles Davis & Horns ... LP
Prestige, 1951/1953. Good ... $43.99
Don't let the "horns" in the title put you off – because the record's not a hokey "with horns" record by Miles, but a batch of all-star sessions that has him playing with some really tremendous contemporaries! The set compiles early Miles Davis sides from two different Prestige sessions of the early 50s – material originally issued as 10 inch LPs, but brought together here in a very cool full length package with a cover image by Mad Magazine's Don Martin! Side one features Miles with a sextet that includes Sonny Rollins, Bennie Green, John Lewis, Percy Heath, and Roy Haynes – on the tracks "Morpheus", "Down", "Blue Room", and "Whispering" – all taken in a boppish mode, but with slight modern touches. Side two features the compositions of Al Cohn – "Tasty Pudding", "Floppy", "Willie The Wailer", and "For Adults Only" – played by a septet that features Cohn, Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Kenny Clarke, Leonard Gaskin, and Sonny Truitt – a very nice match to the sound of side one, and a surprisingly unified record overall! LP, Vinyl record album
