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
(Limited pressing of 750 copies.)

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

Oscar PettifordMy Little Cello (aka New Oscar Pettiford Sextet) ... LP
Debut, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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.)

✨✧ Oscar PettifordOscar Pettiford Orchestra In Hi Fi ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Despite the fact that bassist Pettiford is much more of a small group player than a large band one, ABC cut him on a very tasty batch of "orchestra" sides during the mid 50s – pretty hard swinging little numbers that feature players like Tommy Flanagan, Gigi Gryce, Art Farmer, Jerome Richardson, and Lucky Thompson, all of whom have a similar talent to Pettiford for standing out well amidst a larger group of jazz players. And despite the size of the groups (about 10 to 15 players), Pettiford's bass really is in the lead – recorded nice and high in the mix, setting the pace with a strong groove, and breaking out for some solos that are kind of rare in a session like this. The tracks are all pretty darn hip, too – many with arrangements by Gryce – and titles include "Two French Fries", "The Pendulum At Falcon's Lair", "Not So Sleepy", "Smoke Signal", and "Speculation".

✨✧ Richard BeirachElm ... CD
ECM (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... 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". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)
