Paul HornInside (aka Inside The Taj Majal) ... LP
Epic, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $2.99
One of the most starkly beautiful recordings in Paul Horn's career – with spiritually resonant, almost spine tingling solo flute and some chants, all recorded in the Taj Majal one day in April of 1968! It's really all about the atmosphere, as it would have to be given the location – with Horn playing of the amazing echo in a completely wonderful way, never feeling anything less than wholly authentic and genuinely inspired! Titles include "Vibrations", "Akasha", "Jumna", "Shah Jahan", "Mantra II/Duality", and "Unity". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Paul HornProfile Of A Jazz Musician ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Fantastic stuff – and a beautiful album of modal grooves that really deserves wider recognition! Horn plays alto and flute in a groovy west coast quintet with Emil Richards on vibes and Paul Moer on piano – and the overall feel is very similar to his stellar Something Blue album on the HiFi label. Tracks begin with some tight bass and drum workouts, then the piano of Moers sets down lines that let horn and Richards groove over the top. Wonderful stuff – with only a hint of Horn's later hippy-dippy work, and some great tight jazz soloing. Titles include "Fun Time", "Now Hear This", "Abstraction", and "Straight Ahead".

Paul Horn QuintetSomething Blue ... LP
Hi Fi, 1960. Very Good ... $14.99
Amazing early work from the mighty Paul Horn – a record cut during a time when he was a damn good musician with a keen sensibility for modernist modal jazz! On this excellent date from 1960, Horn plays both flute and alto sax in a wonderful group – a combo with vibes from Emil Richards, bass from Jimmy Bond, piano from Paul Moer, and drums from Billy Higgins – all players with a very fluid, open sense of rhythm – one that makes the date dance and sparkle throughout! There's a pulsating energy here that almost predates the MPS/Saba sound of the decade to come – and in addition to Horn's imaginative solos, which are much more soulful here than before, the record also features some sharp-edged chromatics from Richards on vibes, and almost melodic drums from Higgins. The album's one of our all-time favorites – and titles include "Something Blue", "Half & Half", "Mr Bond", "Dun Dunnee", and "Tall Polynesian". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul HornHere's That Rainy Day ... LP
RCA, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sweet and mellow set from flutist Paul Horn – with a sad, sleepy, and wonderfully late nite feel! Ralph Carmichael arranged and conducted the set – and most of the tracks feature the Ralph Carmichael Singers in the background, singing in a really moody style that adds a nice edge to the tunes. The record's the kind we might have passed up years ago, thinking it a snoozer – but we love it's dark tension, and really appreciate some of the additional instrumental touches, like vibes by Lynn Blessing, piano by Mike Lang, and bass by Bill Plummer. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Moment To Moment", "Ecstasy", "Laura", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul HornCycle ... LP
RCA, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Paul Horn albums, and a beautiful set of modal grooves that is far superior to most of the other stuff he's done over the years. Paul's playing here with his groovy little group that features a vibes/piano/bass/drum lineup, in addition to Paul's beautiful reed playing. The group grooves in long modal lines, with a lot of different musical references (such as Indian music, or Western religious music) criss-crossing, but not overwhelming the "jazz" element, as happened way too often in Horn's earlier LPs. Tracks include "Shadows", "Cycle", "Greensleeves", and "In The Bag". Great stuff, and a beautiful record that often gets overlooked! LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Desmond with Jim HallComplete RCA Victor Recordings (5CD set) ... CD
RCA/Victor, Early/Mid 60s. Used 5CD ... $43.99
Genius in one of its purest forms! Paul Desmond's alto sax was honed to perfection by the time of these recordings – worked out through fame in the Dave Brubeck Quartet years of the late 50s and early 60s, but also relaxed in a confidence that makes these sides completely majestic, and utterly fantastic! Desmond's tone and approach are languid – but in a way that's incredibly compelling: notes just floating out of the horn, almost effortlessly, seeming not to come from Desmond himself, but to him, gathered together by his warmth and good wit, honed in further by the spare and gentle guitar work of the great Jim Hall. This package is the finest tribute we could think of to their brilliant work together – a wonderfully-done 5CD set, with a lovely slipcase and book, done in a way that retains the structure of the original albums, yet also adds in bonus tracks. There's a whopping 55 cuts in all – and every single one of them's a gem! CD

Paul Barbarin & His Jazz Band/Punch Miller's BunchJazz At Preservation Hall 3 ... LP
Atlantic, Mid 60s. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A real cooker in the Atlantic Records' 60s series from Preservation Hall – a record that definitely keeps up the groove throughout! Side one features work by the combo of drummer Paul Barbarin – a lively player with a romping approach to rhythm – one that perfectly suits the trad sounds from Ernie Cagnolatti on trumpet, Waldren "Frog" Joseph on trombone, and Louis Cottrell on clarinet. Titles include "Too Late", "The Second Line", and "Give It Up". Side two features a great group led by legendary trumpeter Ernie "Punch" Miller – with sweet horn work from a lineup that includes Louis Nelson on trombone and George Lewis on clarinet – the latter of whom is in perfect late formation on his well-crafted solos. Titles include "Nobody Knows The Way I Feel This Morning", "Preservation Blues", and "Hindustan". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul Bley/John Gilmore/Gary Peacock/Paul MotianTurning Point ... CD
Improvising Artists Inc (Italy), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album – and one of the few rare non-Ra sides by John Gilmore! Bley's in perfect form at this point – working in an angular modernist mode that perfectly draws out sharp-edged tones from Gilmore's horn, and which is warmed considerably by great bass work by Peacock. We're not entirely sure if this material was issued on Savoy, but it appears to be very similar to tracks that were issued on one of the Savoy Jazz sets at the end of the 70s. Recorded in 1964 in New York – with tracks that include "Ictus", "Ida Lupino", "King Korn", and "Calls". Also features two tracks from 1968, recorded live at the University Of Washington – "Kid Dynamite" and "Mr Joy". CD

✨✧ Paul JeffreyWatershed ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual sort of setting for tenor saxophonist Paul Jeffrey – an overlooked player from the east coast scene of the early 70s, and one who only cut a handful of records at the time! The date features Jack Wilkins on guitar, playing with these bright chromatic hues next to Jeffrey's sharper horn – a pairing that makes for an unusual sound, despite a familiar quartet setting – one that's even different from other matches of this nature, such as the work between Sonny Rollins and Jim Hall! Jeffrey's clearly got some bop roots here, but also opens up in other directions too – and the group features Thelonious Monk Jr on drums and Richard Davis on bass – on titles that include "Brand X", "Moon Madness", "Brand New Day", and "Minor Scene".

Lorez AlexandriaMore Of The Great Lorez Alexandria ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A beautiful album by one of our favorite jazz singers! Lorez Alexandria is in a perfect setting here – singing with subtly sophisticated backings that really let her take charge, and direct the songs tightly with her incredibly soulful vocals! Instrumentation is mostly in a small combo mode – with the Wynton Kelly trio at the core, augmented by a bit of guitar from Ray Crawford, and some alto sax from Paul Horn – and although the album's got an easygoing feel, it also keenly shows the tightness that's always made Lorez so great! Styles are a blend of soul and jazz, plus just a hint of bossa, heard beautifully on the album's rendition of "O Barquinho". Other tracks include "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Once", "Angel Eyes", "No More", and "That Far Away Look". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1960. Used ... $5.99
One of those rare Blue Note sessions from tenorist Tina Brooks – originally recorded for the label in 1960, but never issued at the time – yet easily on a par with their more famous work of the period! Brooks' horn has a nice hard edge here – that sharp-edged modernism you'd hear with Jackie McLean, who makes a key appearance here on the album's famous "Street Singer" track. Jackie's not on the rest of the record, but that's fine with us – because other players are all equally great, and include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Apart from "Street Singer", other titles include "The Ruby & The Pearl", "Back To The Tracks", "For Heaven's Sake", and "The Blues & I". CD

Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of Eurasia ... LP
Columbia, 1958. Very Good- ... $4.99
Dave Brubeck takes on the Eurasian scene – with wonderfully groovy results! The album's one of Brubeck's first in the "impressions" series, and it's a really colorful assortment of tunes – tracks with some lyrical and exotic moments that come through strongly, and which really offer a slightly different take on the Brubeck groove. Paul Desmond's alto sax is key to the sound here, and so is the progressive percussion of Joe Morello – and in addition to Brubeck's piano, the quartet also features bass from Joe Benjamin. Titles are all originals by Dave, and they include "Calcutta Blues", "Marble Arch", "Brandenburg Gate", "Nomad", and "The Golden Horn". LP, Vinyl record album

Don Burrows QuartetAt The Sydney Opera House ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A record that really shows off the strengths of the Australian jazz scene in the 70s – so much so, it was one of that nation's biggest jazz records of the decade, and also got a fair bit of global circulation too! The album's billed to reedman Don Burrows – who's a bit like his nation's Stan Getz at times, but also can handle flute and clarinet as well – with currents that seem to rival the best of Herbie Mann, Paul Horn, or Jimmy Giuffre, depending on the setting. But the album's also got some equally important work on guitar from George Golla – Don's key partner for many years, and a player who can work these open colors on his instrument that sometimes rival Wes Montgomery, but also get a bit funkier too – all modes that he gets to show off here on the album's range of long tracks. The quartet also features Ed Gason on bass and Laurie Thompson on drums – and titles include "Yesterdays", "Sweet Emma", "The Gentle Rain", "Velhos Tempos", and "Maybe Today". CD

Eddie CostaEddie Costa Quintet (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mode/VAP (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An extremely great album from Eddie Costa – one of the best of the all-great Mode sessions from 1957! In what is an odd meeting of players, especially for the label, Eddie's piano and vibes meet up with Art Farmer's trumpet, the alto of Phil Woods, bass of Teddy Kotick, and drums of Paul Motian – all of whom work together with the fluidity and soulfulness of some of the best Prestige sessions of the time. The horn work is tremendous – and it's hard to remember Woods sounding this great on other albums of the time, really cutting an edge next to Farmer's trumpet – which also has an incredible tone for the album, right up there with his Farmer's Market record! Titles include "Big Ben", "Blues Plus Eight", "Stretch In F", and "Get Out Of The Road". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis is a hell of a player on his own – but he's maybe even more amazing when he works alongside other horn soloists – who always seem to inspire Davis to bring out the boldest, mouthiest side of his horn! That tenor is alive and well, and wonderfully set up here – in five different live performances from the Nice Jazz Festival in 1978 – two with Illinois Jacquet on tenor, six with Harry Edison on trumpet, and one more with Paul Bascomb on tenor and Eddie Vinson on alto. Tracks are nice and long – that back/forth jam session style that Eddie does so well – and titles include "Rompin With JC", "Brazil", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Just Friends", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Misty".

Chico HamiltonSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Good+ ... $11.99
A wonderful bit of cinematic jazz from the 50s – played by the Chico Hamilton group as part of the soundtrack! The combo was a key part of the LA scene at the time, but are oddly featured as a regular club act in the movie's New York setting – but we'll gladly forgive that geographic error, given that the music on the set is so great. The quality's a bit like some of the Hamilton Quintet work on World Pacific – but there's a slightly freer, more urgent feel here too – work that's sometimes somewhat driving, and beautifully blended from the guitar of John Pisano, clarinet of Paul Horn, cello of Fred Katz, piano of Carson Smith, and drums from Chico. Side one features a lot of short incidental cuts – like "Susan", "Cheek To Chico", "Jam", and "Night Beat" – and side 2 is an extended "Concerto Of Jazz Themes From The Soundtrack Of Sweet Smell Of Success".

Illinois JacquetNice Jazz 1978 ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Illinois Jacquet is one of those old school tenorists who never let his talents falter, even when he was far from the limelight – as you'll hear here on a great set of performances recorded live in France in the late 70s! The tracks are long, open, and relaxed – and really seem to bring out the best in Jacquet's horn – as he's paired with the tenor of Eddie Lockjaw Davis on three tracks, the tenor of Paul Bascomb on another, and the trumpet of Clark Terry on one more – while working with help from either Hank Jones or Roland Hanna on piano. Our three favorite tracks are the ones with Davis – which almost have a reworked version of the groove that Eddie cut with Johnny Griffin on a number of records – but overall, the material is all pretty great, and is a strong showcase for the Jacquet raspy sound. Titles include "Lean Baby", "Blues From NO", "Mop Mop", "Cotton Tail", "Blues From Louisiana", and "Robbin's Nest". CD

JJ Johnson & Kai WindingTrombone For Two (plus Jay & Kai) ... CD
Columbia/Mosaic, 1955/1956. Used ... $9.99
2 classic Columbia albums from the duo of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding – back to back on a single CD! First up is Trombone For Two – a 1955 session that features some really magical interplay from the twin-trombone team of Johnson and Winding! The great thing about the set is the way in which both players really bring a sense of "voice" to their music – trading back and forth almost like two friends chatting in friendly conversation – but managing to do so with a lot more swing than most! Backings are by Dick Katz on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's a short, simple brilliance to these tunes that's hard to deny. Titles include "We Two", "It's Sand Man", "Give Me The Simple Life", "Turnabout", and "Trombone For Two". Jay & Kai captures JJ Johnson and Kai Winding at the height of their dual powers – working together beautifully at a level that both embraces the modern sound of the trombone in larger 50s ensembles, but also offers up the more fluid personality of the instrument in the smaller combo scene! The pair have a great way of coming together at the start, then splitting off to find their own space on the tunes – a wonderful antidote to some of the too-tight trombone lines of the 50s, and a great reminder that there's always a voice behind the horn. The group on the record features Dick Katz on piano and celeste, plus either Bill Crow or Milt Hinton on bass, and Shadow Wilson or Kenny Clarke on drums. Candido plays a bit of percussion on the track "Caribe" – and the pair play tromboniums on the tune "Tromboniums In Motion". Other tracks include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "The Song Is You", and "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning". CD

✨✧ Fred KatzSoulo Cello – Fred Katz & His Music ... LP
Decca, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
Not really a set of solo cello work, but one of the rare few albums made by Fred Katz as a leader – right around the time he was making big waves with Chico Hamilton! The cello's definitely in the lead here – both plucked and bowed by Fred – and other players are likely LA suspects, and include Paul Horn and Buddy Collette on reeds, John Pisano on guitar, and Calvin Jackson on piano – plus percussion "played by a prominent jazz drummer and group leader" – who we can only assume is Chico! The sound of these tunes is a bit different than the material Katz cut with Hamilton – almost lighter and more lively at points, but a bit bluer-toned at others. Titles include "Satori", "Country Gardens", "The Toy That Never Was", "Intermezzo", "Come With Me", and "Lament Of The Oracles". LP, Vinyl record album

The group on the date is part of the strength of the record – with Conte Candoli on trumpet, Emil Richards on vibes, Paul Horn on flute, and Victor Feldman on piano – with loads of great percussion and guitar interplay on the set, plus some excellent use of flute and vibes – all of which makes for the sort of session that really translates the Brazilian groove into the best sort of sound the LA scene was cutting at the time! Nice, light, and dancing rhythms – and titles that include "Love", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Latin Dance #1", "Lady Byrd", and "One Note Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A reunion of sorts for Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan – given that the pair had played together on record 5 years before, in a similar session for Verve! This album's almost lighter and more airy than the previous one – as it's done in a mode that echoes strongly with Desmond's own genius at RCA at the time – using a piano-less quartet format that has both horns carving out their own subtle space in sound, hanging together, but each occupying a different range of tonal color. The tracks are relatively longish, and the pair dart around each other nicely on tracks like "All The Things You Are", "Out Of Nowhere", "Blight Of The Fumble Bee", and "Two Of A Mind".

High Note, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful beautiful set from trumpeter Tom Harrell – a record that goes even beyond his other recent gems – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love those albums! The combo on the record features some key vocal work from Esperanza Spaulding – who's sounding quite different here than her more recent sides, and has moved back to using her vocals more like an instrument – soaring out soulfully in a sharp lineup that includes Tom's trumpet and flugelhorn, Jaleel Shaw's alto, and Wayne Escoffery's tenor! This side of Spaulding is really wonderful – and really helps realize the deeper tones and ideas in Tom's wonderful compositions for the record – a set of tunes that include "Velejar", "Phantasy In Latin", "Tango", "State", "Seventy", "Blues 2013", and "Family".

Very different work than usual for superdrummer Paul Humphrey – a warm, acoustic set of soul jazz – with a very different approach than his 70s albums! Humphrey's really stepping out here as a strong straight jazz leader – working with a group that includes west coast hornmen Buster Cooper, Oscar Brashear, and Herman Riley – arranged by the pianist in the group, Llew Mathews. The tunes are nearly all originals – done with a post-Horace Silver style that mixes the soulful and the introspective, and which slides into lots of warm tones and colors, all while still keeping its groove. Titles include "My Mind Is Free", "Thiago", "Snap", "Roundabout", and "Return To The Nightsong". LP, Vinyl record album

The group here continues the pianoless tradition of some of Mulligan's work of the decade – leaving plenty of room for amazing interplay between the horns, and a rare chance to hear Desmond away from the instrument – especially considering his work with Brubeck – blowing here in an airy, willowy tone that's totally great. Other players include Joe Benjamin on bass and Dave Bailey on drums – and titles include "Blues In Time", "Standstill", "Line For Lyons", and "Fall Out".

Elton Dean QuintetWelcomet – Live In Brazil 1986 ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1986. New Copy ... $14.99
Reedman Elton Dean recorded most famously in the 70s – but in the following decade, he still had plenty to give the world – maybe even more than before, as you'll hear in this beautiful live set from 1986! Dean's working in very open territory here – blowing saxello and alto alongside the trumpet of Harry Beckett and trombone of Paul Rutherford – both players whose sense of timing and shapes really match Elton's own work – on two very long tracks that are relatively free, but have this inherent sense of structure that really seems to come from the energy between the three horns. The drums of Liam Genockey are nicely loose at the right moments, and Marcio Mattos makes some strong contributions to the performance on bass – on two long tracks, titled "Rio Rules" and "Welcomet".

Charles KynardWoga ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet organ lines, heavy drums, and a great little groove throughout – a tight batch of groovers from the mighty Charles Kynard! The keyboardist is in fine 70s form here – stepping away from the sparer sound of his albums for Prestige with a fuller style for Mainstream Records – in a groove that's almost part blacksploitation funk, thanks to some sharp backings from arranger Richard Fritz! The mighty Paul Humphrey is at the bottom of the set on nicely funky drums – and other players include Arthur Adams on guitar, Chuck Rainey on bass, and some great additional horns, which give the record a larger jazzy finish, but never get in the way of Kynard's lean, mean organ lines. There's a great version of "Rock Steady" on the album, one that has a great funky intro – plus the cuts "Shout", "Lime Twig", "Slop Jar", "Name The Missing Word", "Little Ghetto Boy", and "Hot Sauce".

Ennio MorriconePeur Sur La Ville ... CD
Warner/Music Box (France), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
A great Morricone soundtrack for a Jean-Paul Belmondo thriller – a score that starts out spare and brooding, then builds nicely as things move on – with lots of cool bottom-end sounds that make the whole thing really move up from the depths! Some tunes echo the sweeter side of Morricone, while others are a bit more brooding – and instrumentation includes some of the same offbeat piano you'd hear in The Burglars, plus light guitar, weird-tuned horns, and other nice bits that are sometimes abstracted beyond recognition! Titles include "Consideration Sur Un Homicide", "Paris Secret", "Defense De Stationner" and "Mannequins". CD features lots of bonus tracks – with a total of 75 minutes of music – more than we've ever seen for this one! CD

Pharoah SandersKarma ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Near Mint- ... $28.99
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it's a beautiful extended suite of tracks that flows with a sense of grace, power, and majesty that's simply breathtaking – a new level of expression in spiritual jazz – and virtually the blueprint for an entire generation to come! The album features the classic track "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – spanning a tremendous amount of space and time – and featuring Leon Thomas' classic vocals on the lyrics! Thomas also returns on the cut "Colors", which is a bit more outside, and quite free overall – and other players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, James Spaulding on flute, Julius Watkins on French horn, Ron Carter and Richard Davis on bass, and Freddie Waits and Billy Hart on drums.

Tony Scott & Bill EvansDay In New York ... CD
Fresh Sound (Switzerland), 1957. Used 2CD ... $12.99
Some of the first true genius from Tony Scott – and a real treat for Bill Evans fans too! The 2CD set features sessions that were originally issued on an obscure record on the Carlton label, but also includes a lot of other sides that never saw the light of day at the time – and which really expand our understanding of both Scott and Evans at this point in their careers. Scott plays mostly clarinet on the session, plus a bit of baritone sax – in styles that range from boppish to sparer, more modern lines – almost a bit like those of Jimmy Giuffre on some of his better work of the mid 50s. Evans' piano is a bit more forceful than on some of his other records from the time, and the rhythm section of the group features either Henry Grimes or Milt Hinton on bass, and Paul Motian on drums. Some tracks feature additional horns by Clark Terry, Jimmy Knepper, and Sahib Shihab –a nd titles include "Portrait Of Ravi", "I Remember You", "Five", "The Explorer", "Villa Jazz", "Franzy Pants", "For Pete's Sake", "Third Moon", "Blues For Five", and "The Chant".

Spontaneous Music EnsembleChallenge 1966 to 1967 ... CD
Eyemark/Emanem (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Amazing free jazz from the British scene of the mid 60s – some of the earliest rumblings of genius from the Spontaneous Music Ensemble – already working here at a level that matches the avant energy happening both in the US and on the larger European scene! Core interplay here comes from Paul Rutherford on trombone, John Stevens on drums, and Trevor Watts on alto sax – three well-matched and familiar players who are able to improvise at a level that's quite mature, especially for the time – let loose, but never without a sense of direction – and given great help on most tracks by Kenny Wheeler on flugelhorn, plus a bit of bass from either Jeff Clyne or Bruce Cale. The whole thing's amazing – really bridging a modern world of Ornette Coleman and Joe Harriott with some of the later FMP-styled sounds that would come from the continent – and titles include "ED's Message", "2B Ornette", "Day Of Reckoning", "Travelling Together", "Club 66", and "After Listening". CD features the unissued "End To A Beginning" – plus the bonus 15 minute "Distant Little Soil", by a group that has Evan Parker on soprano sax and Chris Cambridge on bass, working with Watts and Stevens.

Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 1976/2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
A pair of boundary busting tunes steeped in tropical rhythms – one a rare Brazilian samba psych groover from 1976 – the other an Afro Latin and hip hop inspired jam from 2016! "Grilos Da Vida" by Sao Paulo's Banda Jardes is the vintage cut, kicking off with sweet organ and a soulful guitar groove and catchy bassline before some easygoing lead and backing vocals come in. The other side is a 2016 jam by Super Spanish Combo, a pretty great little melting pot Afro Latin soul – with really nice percussion and horns – with vocals that work in that mode, but also some skillful rap. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousFestival Musica Nova ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
Avant sounds from the Brazilian scene – a double-length collection of material from the 2014 Festival Musica Nova – a great showcase for creative composers and forward-thinking musical ensembles! Much of this material is on the far leftfield side of modern music – and much feels like a mix of improvisation and composition – the kinds of work you might find on Hat Hart's Hat Now series – or maybe like some of the best avant chamber work of the mid 20th century. Works include "Sho III" by Fernando Riederer, "Divertimento Agua Mineral" by Paulo Costa Lima, "Longhorn Trio" by Gilberto Mendes, "Toada II Largo" by Silvio Ferraz, "Fairy Tale" by Moon Young Ha, "Arlequim Solar" by Liduino Pitombeira, "Lunatic" by Dorothea Hofman, "Granite Blocks/Quiet Water" by Jack Fortner, and "Prenascenca" by Gil Nunco Vaz.

Prestige, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bold early statement from a young John Coltrane – and an album that really has him expanding his talents as a tenor soloist! Coltrane's working here in open-ended quartet format – with backing from the Red Garland trio that includes Paul Chambers and Art Taylor – on a set of longer tunes that really let the young Trane stretch out on his solos, unobstructed by any other horns in the lineup. There's a nice mix of hardbop ideals, gentle ballads, and personal soul to the set – and titles include Coltrane's classic reading of Tadd Dameron's "Good Bait", plus "I Want To Talk About You", "Russian Lullaby", and "Theme For Ernie".

Prestige, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
A huge moment in jazz – not just for trumpeter Miles Davis, but also for saxophonist John Coltrane – who was virtually introduced to the world at large with this record! As you might guess from the title, the record's the first to feature Coltrane playing along with Davis – a sublime combination that resulted in some key sides that forever helped shape the sound of jazz. Rhythm is by the famous trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – and apart from the top-shelf solo work, the interplay between the horns is also fantastic. Titles include "Just Squeeze Me", "There Is No Greater Love", "How Am I To Know", "S'Posin", "The Theme", and "Stablemates". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herbie Hancock5 Original Albums (Takin Off/My Point Of View/Inventions & Dimensions/Speak Like A Child/The Prisoner) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
The early genius of Herbie Hancock – perfectly summed up here in five classic albums for Blue Note – each presented in a tiny LP-styled sleeve! Takin Off has Herbie Hancock stepping into the limelight with an excellent batch of soul jazz tunes, including the first recording of his classic "Watermelon Man", the one track that probably put all his kids through school! Although that one went on to become a standard within a few short years in 60s jazz, it still sounds great here in the original – a very fresh take on the sound of soul jazz in the 60s – offered up here in a 7 minute version that has more sharp soloing than most other takes on the tune! The group here is great too – with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the tracks are all also originals by a young Herbie – including "Watermelon Man", "The Maze", "Driftin", "Three Bags Full", "Alone & I", and "Empty Pockets". My Point Of View is a great mix of soul jazz and modernism! The record include a nice groovy "hit", Herbie's "Blind Man, Blind Man" – an obvious follow-up to "Watermelon Man", but still a standout track with a lot of imagination, and a fierce soul jazz hook that just won't quit! The rest of the record, while still groovy, also shows much more signs of Herbie's far-reaching conception – especially shared with players like Tony Williams, Grachan Moncur, Chuck Israels, and Grant Green – all of whom work with Herbie, Donald Byrd, and Hank Mobley – in a larger than usual group that makes for a really great sound! Titles include "A Tribute To Someone", "King Cobra", and "The Pleasure Is Mine". Inventions & Dimensions is really unique little record from Herbie Hancock – one that's almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare – and quite different than Herbie's other Blue Note work – and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 Latin percussionists, Willie Bobo and Osvaldo "Chihuahau" Martinez. Herbie only wrote simple sketches for the songs on the album, and most of the work on the tracks was done live, spontaneously, in the studio – creating a very free groove that never goes too far out, but which is far more adventurous than usual. All tracks are long, and titles include "Succotash", "Triangle", and "Mimosa". Speak Like A Child is an oft-overlooked session that has Herbie mixing a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Herbie's smaller group sessions – and the record features a sextet that includes Ron Carter, Mickey Roker, Jerry Dodgion, Thad Jones, and Peter Phillips – all soaring with the warmth and introspection that was showing up in some of the best Blue Notes from the time. The harder-hitting soul jazz riffs and hooks are nicely replaced by more thoughtful lines that get a bit deeper, soufully – and nearly all tracks on the set are originals by Hancock! The album's filled with great moments – and tracks include "The Sorcerer", "Riot", and "Goodbye To Childhood". Last up is The Prisoner – a nice late Blue Note change from Herbie Hancock – a very different album than his previous sets for the label – in that it features a slightly larger group, and a sound that really points the way towards his directions in the 70s! There's a slightly ambitious feel to some of these cuts – not in a way that's over-arranged, but just a new sort of thinking for Herbie's kind of groove – a mode that's partially informed by the seriousness of 60s jazz soundtracks, but which also has the beginnings of some more righteous modes of expression too. Players are all great – and include Joe Henderson on tenor and flute, Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, Hubert Laws on flute, Jerome Richardson on bass clarinet, Buster Williams on bass, and Tootie Heath on drums. Herbie plays both acoustic and electric piano – using the latter here in one of his first recordings on the instrument – and titles include "Firewater", "I Have A Dream", "The Prisoner", and "He Who Lives In Fear".

Adventure Music, 2004. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Winds of Brazil is a pretty heady little group – one that features work by Brazilian reed players Teco Cardoso, Vinicius Dorin, Lea Freire, Mauro Rodrigues, and Paulo Moura – all working here in a slightly-orchestral performance of Brazilian classics and original numbers! There's a fluid feel here that keeps the proceedings from being too stiff or too academic – and songs are presented in fresh arrangements exclusive to the group, penned by Mauricio Einhorn, Paulo Moura, Benjamin Taubkin, Vittor Santos, and others – in ways that unite earthier and more sophisticated Brazilian musical traditions. Titles include "Firm & Smooth", "The March Of The Sounds", "Morning Of Carnaval", "Kenoma", "Sunset Star", "Affectionate", and "Steel In The Piston". CD
