Philip Springer/Pacific Gas & Electric/Pete SeegerTell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Sealed ... $1.99
A real mix of moods and styles here. Pete Seeger starts out the soundtrack singing "Old Devil Time", and PG&E perform 2 funkier numbers – "Elvira" and "The Rake/Work Your Show", which both have a bluesy rock sort of approach. The best tunes, though, are the lighter instrumental ones by Springer – gentle numbers with slight jazzy touches amidst string-heavy backings, in the mode of some of Dave Grusin's best early soundtrack work. Titles by Springer include "Junie Moon", "Arthur's Trip", "The Big Date", "The Lovers", and "Off For A Holiday". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceStar Bright (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
The greatest of Dizzy Reece's 3 LPs for Blue Note – and it's also the hardest to find! The British trumpeter is playing here with a group that is totally classic hardbop Blue Note – and which includes Hank Mobley on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Mobley's playing is fantastic – as on all of his Blue Notes – and his presence alone takes the set into another level. His solos on the harder tracks are all great, and played with a razor-sharp edge that opens up Reece a lot more than usual. Tracks include "The Rebound", "Groovesville", "The Rake", and "A Variation On Monk". Great stuff, and a true classic lost Blue Note! This limited reissue is packaged in a tiny 5" cardboard sleeve, complete with 24-bit remastering by Rudy Van Gelder himself! CD

Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $8.99
A fresh album from one of the stronger partnerships in avant garde jazz – sax titan Fred Anderson and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake – joined by some of the finest Chicago based players for set of slowbuilding, generously spacious material that might be even better their previous album for Thrill Jockey! Anderson's sax and Drake's drumming are as intuitive to each other as ever, and some bits of the record have a dual bass sound that really pulls us in! Josh Abrams and Harrison Bankhead bring the bass, with a great cello part by Bankhead on one track, and Jeff Parker plays some nice guitar. A masterful record with more of an ensemble approach than its predecessor! 5 long (or longish), languorously gripping tracks: "Planet E", "Strut Time", "For Brother Thompson", "From The River To The Ocean" and "Sakti/Shiva".

Hamid Drake/Sylvain KassapHeads Or Tails ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2007/2013. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 25.99
Two different duets between reedman Sylvain Kassap and percussionist Hamid Drake – one live, one studio – recorded six years apart, but sounding wonderful together in this double-length package! The first section is live – and features some very long, open improvisations – with Kassap on a range of clarinets, mostly in the bass range, plus chalumeau as well – as Drake opens up his drum kit with that special sort of magic that's made him a key percussionist in the legacy of rhythm-free drummers like Andrew Cyrille or Pierre Favre. The studio tracks are shorter, but no less beautiful – and have a way of conveying a lot with just a little, thanks especially to some surprisingly soulful expressions by Kassap. Titles include "Sharp Bend", "Wood Splinters", "Mutual Respect", "Black Walnuts", "Heavy Traffic", "Of Course", and "Sharp Light". CD

Tony DrakeLiving In The Footsteps Of Another Man/Hey World ... 7-inch
It's Soul Time, 2005. New Copy ... $5.99
Incredible new work from Tony Drake – a singer who recorded briefly for Brunswick and Musicor back in the day, and the artist who originally wrote this hit for The Chi-Lites! Tony's singing here as if it's still the early 70s – deep soul lead, backed by sweet harmonies – all set to a mellow gliding groove that's a slightly different take on the old Chi-soul sound! "Hey World" is a slightly more modern number – one that hits a bit of a boogie bounce on the bottom, but which still has sublimely classic lead vocals from Tony! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ IrakereIrakere ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial or slick, but free from some of the jarring shifts in styles that occurred before – and more in that sweet combination of rootsy percussion and Latin funk that made them great at their best previous moments! All players are great – and the lineup is almost a who's who of Cuban jazz at the time – with Chucho Valdes on piano and keyboards, Paquito D'Rivera on alto sax, and Arturo Sandoval on trumpet – plus guitar from Carlos Emilio Morales, percussion from Oscar Valdes, and tenor from Carlos Averhoff. The tracks were recorded live at the Montreux jazz festival – and titles include "Adagio", "Ilya", "Juana Mil Ciento", and the long "Misa Negra (The Black Mass)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nick DrakeFive Leaves Left ... LP
Island, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Godlike work from the legendary Nick Drake – and exactly the kind of record that's made him a continuing legend over the years! The style is completely its own – not really folk or rock, but not really jazz either – yet served up with plenty of jazzy phrasing that's helped keep Drake's music fresher than most as the decades move on – and which makes each song here a really rich discovery – even if, like us, you've heard the album hundreds of times in the past! The production is wonderful – with slight underscorings of strings that help unlock dark corners of the songs – and tracks include the classic "River Man" – easily one of Nick's best songs ever – plus "Fruit Tree", "Day Is Done", "Three Hours", "Saturday Sun", and "Time Has Told Me". A record we'd never part with – ever! LP, Vinyl record album
(First UK pressing – gatefold, with pink label and black block Island logo at bottom! Cover has very light wear, and two small staple holes – but this is a great copy.)

✨✧ Joe McPhee & Hamid DrakeEmancipation Proclamation – A Real Statement Of Freedom ... CD
Okka Disk, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great set that reminds us of some of McPhee's early work on the Hat Hut label. The performance was recorded live at Chicago's Empty Bottle – where McPhee is a regular visitor to the groundbreaking gigs organized by Ken Vandermark and John Corbett – and the CD features spare duets with master percussionist Hamid Drake. McPhee plays pocket trumpet and tenor – and titles include "Hate Crime Cries", "Cries & Whispers", "Mother Africa", and "Emancipation Proclamation". Very spare, but very moving – in the manner of some of the early work by the Art Ensemble of Chicago. CD

Prelude, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic early 80s groover by Nick Straker – not really as jazzy as you'd expect, but with some nice piano work that hints at use of the instrument in later house singles. "Space Age" is more of an electro track – with vocoded vocals and lots of keyboards. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Count BasieBasie Jam ... LP
Pablo, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $1.99
An all-star jam session from Montreux in 1973 – recorded in true Verve style by the great Norman Granz, Count Basie at the head of a group that includes Louie Bellson, Ray Brown, JJ Johnson, Harry Edison, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, and Zoot Sims! Tracks are nice lengthy rakes of Basie classics, with plenty of solo space – a bit tighter than a more traditional jam session, probably because the players get along so well together! 5 numbers in all, including "Doubling The Blues", "Hanging Out", "Red Bank Blues", "One-Nighter" and "Freeport Blues".

Joe BeckNature Boy ... CD
Verve/Long Hair (Germany), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool little album from Joe Beck – very different than most of his other work! Although Beck's best known for his guitar work on funky 70s jazz records, this early album has him working in a mixture of rock, jazz, and folk styles – all cast in the hipster mode of Verve's Forecast imprint. There's a few funk tunes on here, but the best numbers are stretched out trippy ones that bring together jazz and folk, in a floating "folk funk experience" sound that we totally love, perfect for the generation of Tim Hardin and Nick Drake. Beck sings on some cuts, and others are instrumental. Titles include "Ain't No Use Talkin", "Goodbye LA", "Please Believe Me", "Let Me Go", "Come Back: Visions Without You", and "Spoon's Caress". CD

Peter BrotzmannChicago Octet/Tentet (3CD set) ... CD
Okka Disk, 1998. Used 3 CDs ... $49.99
Very cool box set of 3 CDs' worth of material recorded by Peter Brotzmann and his amazing group of players on 2 trips to Chicago in the late 90s! The set – which is limited and numbered – features both live and studio performances by the Chicago Octet and Tentet, two provisional groups set up by Brotzmann comprised of Chicago mainstays – like Jeb Bishop, Ken Vandermark, and Hamid Drake – plus outsiders with ties to the Chicago avant scene – like Joe McPhee and Mats Gustafsson. The 3 CDs have an amazing amount of material, and are packaged in a handsomely crafted slipcase with a nice graphic. More excellent jazz from one of our favorite labels on the planet! Disc 1 ( live) includes long octet working of "Burning Spirit (For Kazuka Shiraishi)" plus tentet runs of "Other Brothers", "Old Bottles, No Wine" and "Aziz". Disc 2 features live tentet tracks "Divide By Zero" and "Foolish Infinity", and studio tentet tracks "Immediate Music" and "Makapoor". Disc 3 is all studio tentet material, with "Foolish Infinity", "Old Bottles, No Wine", "Other Brothers" and "Divide By Zero". CD

✨✧ Eric DolphyIron Man ... LP
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger array of players than you'll find on most of his records for other labels – the cream of the "new thing" players that were around New York at the time, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, and even Clifford Jordan on soprano sax – making a rare appearance on record on that instrument! Together, the players create a set of soundscapes that lies somewhere between Dolphy's Out To Lunch album, and some of the more modernist work by Mingus – a stunning batch of tracks that go out, but never too far. Titles include "Ode to CP", "Burning Spear", "Iron Man", and "Mandrake". LP, Vinyl record album

Eloping With The Sun (William Parker/Joe Morris/HaCounteract This Turmoil Like Trees & Birds ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2016. Used ... $9.99
A beautifully earthy performance – and a set that not only has the three members of the trio on their trademark instruments, but also picking up a wide range of other elements too! Joe Morris is perhaps the most striking here – as in addition to guitar, he also uses banjo, fiddle, bass, banjouke, pocket trumpet, and even a bit of whistles – a sonic sense of variety that's matched by Parker's use of shakuhachi, sintir, n'goni, and thumb piano – all instruments that he plays with the same deeply spiritual currents of his work on bass! Hamid Drake sticks mostly to percussion – a range of drums, cymbals, and gongs – but overall, his performance feels as open and organic as the others – far beyond both standard and free jazz, into a mode that almost works in some ethnographic currents as well. The whole record's as poetic as the title – and tracks include "Profound Branches", "The Sky Was Purple Blue", "Energy Of Patience", "The Rhythm Of Butterflies", "Endless Galaxies", and "Grass Beneath The Cracked Shells".

EvensongEvensong (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beatball (Korea), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
One of those records that should have been a classic – but which maybe never hit the mark at the time because it was too perfect, too far ahead of its generation to score a bigger hit! At one level, Evensong work in the same mix of folk and strings that you might find from some of Joe Boyd's productions over at Island – especially the music of Nick Drake – but there's other currents here that reflect the acoustic hipness on the LA scene a few years before, too – not necessarily country-inspired, but with currents that are more American than usual for UK work of the time. The group are a duo – Tony Hulme and Mike Lawson – but the sound really comes from the fuller arrangements from Mike Moran and Ray Fenwick, who flesh out their core ideas beautifully. Titles include "Smallest Man In The World", "Dodos & Dinosaurs", "I Was Her Cowboy", "Store Of Time", "Rum Runner", "Sweetbriar Road", and "Borderline" – plus 6 bonus tracks including "Home Made Wine", "Romeo", and "Tell Me A Story"!
