Joe LockeLove Is A Pendulum ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A really beautiful record from vibist Joe Locke – and maybe his most dynamic album in years! The set's got Joe working in a particularly angular mode – carving out these wonderful lines of sound with core rhythms from the trio of Robert Rodriguez on piano, Terreon Gully on drums, and Ricky Rodriguez on bass – all younger players who provide a very fresh setting for Locke's vibes! Joe's still got all the warmth of his recent records, but also has a bit more edge, too – which we like a lot – and this quality seems to come out especially strong alongside some of the guests – who include Rosario Giuliani on alto and soprano sax and Donny McCaslin on tenor. Titles include "For Jesse Mountain", "Love Is Letting Go", "Love Is A Pendulum", "Love Is The Tide", and "Variation On Wisdom". CD

Steve ReichFour Organs/Phase Patterns/Pendulum Music – Ensemble Avant Garde (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Wergo/Karl (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $20.99
Brilliant minimal work from Steve Reich – pre-fame performances that really get to the core of minimalist composition from the start of the movement – played by a hip small group of musicians that includes Reich, Steve Chambers, Art Murphy, and Philip Glass! "Four Organs" is a wonderful combination of the instruments mentioned in the title – coming together with a cool drone-building quality, and driven by some very slight, soft rhythms on maracas – very cool, and relatively spare – but with a compelling sound that definitely shows that Reich and his contemporaries were onto a whole new groove. "Phase Patterns" has organs again - and is a slow, subtle exploration of Reich's early ideas on patterns of phase shifting – delivered here in a spare, stark, simple way that really hooks you into his musical ideas, in ways that some of the larger concept records sometimes fail to do. "Pendulum Music" continues the experiments in phase shifting – but uses only microphones, amplifiers, and loudspeakers – which are looping these spare woodwind notes until they become rhythmic phrases! LP, Vinyl record album

Digable PlanetsBlowout Comb ... CD
Pendulum, 1994. Used ... $5.99
The laidback classic! The Digables certainly weren't the first or the most innovative hip hop group to rely upon cooled out jazzy grooves for the backbone of their sound, but they really brought it home with a hugely endearing and long enduring vibe – and this is their masterpiece! All these years later, Blowout Comb is still pure gold. Loads of tripped out arrangements on live instruments – which is a huge step for the group after their largely sampled debut – and layer upon layer of groovy vocals in addition to the easy rhymes of Butterfly, Ladybug and Doodlebug. Also includes an appearance by Jeru! Probably the catchiest jazz-rap fusion record of all time! Tracks include "The May 4th Movement Starring Doodlebug", "Black Ego", "Dog It", "Jettin", "Borough Check", "Highing Fly", "Dial 7", "The Art Of Easing", "K.B.'s Alley", "Graffiti", "Blowing Down", "9th Wonder", and "For Corners".

✨✧ Digable PlanetsReachin' (A New Refutation Of Time & Space) ... CD
Pendulum/Elektra, 1993. Used ... $1.99
While it's pretty fair to say that the Digables would never have existed if not for the whole Native Tongue posse, they managed to take the aesthetic to a new level. This first LP's an early 90s classic that set a new standard for post-Daisy Age jazzy hip hop, with breezy jazzy production, and a mellow laid back rhyme style that dug into the abstract lyrical realm more than any of their predecessors. Still sounds fresh today, too. Includes "Where I'm From", "It's Good To Be Here", "What Cool Breezes Do", "Time & Space (A New Refutation Of)", "Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)", "Escapism (Gettin Free)", "Pacifics", "Appointment At The Fat Clinic", "Swoon Units", "Last Of The Spiddyocks", "Examination Of What", "Nickel Bags", and "Jimmi Diggin Cats".

Child's View (Nobukazu Takemura)Fun Fair ... CD
Bubble Core, 1999. Used ... $3.99
Another wild one from Nobukazu Takemura, and an album that sounds quite a bit like his Child & Magic set of 1998! The style is minimal, electronic, and with lots of the Oval-ish bubblings and scrapings that have been occupying Takemura's work lately. Nicely issued in the US, and sure to expand Takemura's audience into whole new realms. Titles include "Pendulum", "After Image", "Sabure", "Cradle Of the Light", and "Assi Que Dodo". CD

✨✧ Richard BeirachElm ... LP
ECM, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nicely woody little album from pianist Richie Beirach – full of deep tones on his own acoustic piano, and supported strongly by some rich lines from George Mraz on bass! Beirach's got this tuneful, lyrical vibe on the record – maybe similar to his previous Eon set – but he's also still plenty loose and open to new ideas, which often seem to get directed by drummer Jack DeJohnette, whose work is an undeniably key part of the trio here! Richie's got this way of cascading notes along that works perfectly with some of DeJohnette's more driving lines – and titles include "Sea Preistess", "Pendulum", "Ki", "Snow Leopard", and "Elm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Oscar PettifordMy Little Cello (aka New Oscar Pettiford Sextet) ... LP
Debut, Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although bassist Oscar Pettiford left a huge influence on jazz before his untimely death, there's not actually that many fantastic records in which he's featured as a leader. Fortunately, this is one of the few, and it's a sparkling set of modernist inflected bop tunes played by a group that includes Mingus on bass, Phil Urso on tenor, Walter Bishop on piano, and Percy Heath on drums. Pettiford plays cello, and his lead on the instrument gives the record a dark tone that is extremely haunting. Titles include "Low & Behold", "Pendulum", and "Tamalpais". Plus, this reissue LP also includes 2 tracks from rare Swedish sessions – "Fru Bruel" and "I Succumb To Temptation" – both great, and both rare! LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split spine & some light wear.)
