✨✧ VariousUncompromising Expression – The Story Of Blue Note In 75 Singles (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. Used 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly cool package from Blue Note Records – especially given its unassuming cover! The 5CD set looks at a really overlooked side of the Blue Note legacy – the label's strong line of 78 and 45 rpm singles over the years – many of which featured different mixes or performances than the better-known album recordings from the time! The set begins with the earliest years of Blue Note – and goes right up to the present, to include some rare promo or download-only tracks too – but the core focus is on the legendary Blue Note years of the 50s, 60s, and early 70s – with a tremendous amount of hard-to-find gems that were originally only issued as 7" records. The package features 75 tracks in all, with a sweet little book on all the material too – which includes all the session/lineup details for each cut – and titles include "The Thin Man" by Art Blakey, "Born To Be Blue" by Wynton Kelly, "Oop Pop A Da" by Bab's 3 Bips & A Bop, "Topsy" by Ike Quebec Swing Seven, "Summertime" by Sidney Bechet, "Safari" by Horace Silver, "Roccus" by Lou Donaldson, "Senor Blues" by Bill Henderson, "Blue Train (part 1)" by John Coltrane, "Oscalypso" by Curtis Fuller, "DB Blues" by Kenny Burrell, "The High & The Mighty" by Jimmy Smith, "Message From Kenya" by Art Blakey & Sabu, "Ain't No Use" by Jimmy Smith & Bill Henderson, "The Rake" by Dizzy Reece, "True Blue" by Tina Brooks, "One Mint Julep" by Freddie Hubbard, "Ernie's Tune" by Dexter Gordon, "Our Miss Brooks" by Harold Vick, "Miss Ann's Tempo" by Grant Green, "Change" by Donald Byrd, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Theme From Electric Surfboard" by Jack McDuff, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Robert Glasper, "Holding Onto You" by Derric Hodge, and "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Cassandra Wilson.

Peter Brotzmann/William Parker/Hamid DrakeSong Sentimentale (180 gram pressing) ... LP
OTOroku (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $26.99
If there's one thing we can expect from this trio of players, it's that they're never going to be too sentimental – as a group like this is always moving forward into the future, opening up new ideas with every moment of their music, and continuing to blow us away after all their many years in music! An album like this is a great reminder that sometimes the greats do it better than anyone else – especially when it comes to free improvisation – because there's a breathlessness to this album that never lets up – a balance between the energy of all three musicians, both as individuals and parts of a whole, that we sometimes don't hear from up-and-comers when they try to hit this territory. Recorded live on a trio of dates at Cafe OTO, the CD and vinyl versions feature unique material not on the other format! The vinyl version features two long improvisations – "Song Sentimental" and "Dark Blues" – both a perfect fusion of the talents of Peter Brotzmann on tenor and b-flat clarinet, William Parker on bass, guembri, shakuhachi, and shehnai – and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion. LP, Vinyl record album
(CD and vinyl version have unique track listings – we recommend buying both!)

✨✧ Cally Callomon & Gabrielle Drake (editors)Nick Drake – Remembered For A While – The Authorized Companion To The Music Of Nick Drake (hardcover) ... Book
Little Brown, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 45.00
An insanely huge book on the music of Nick Drake – one that not only features song lyrics and details on his albums, but which also features a huge amount of private archive material, vintage photos, letters, diary entries, and even press reviews of his records – alongside writings by the editors, and supplemental essays too – in the biggest and best book we've ever seen to focus on Drake's all-too-short career!

Nick DrakeFive Leaves Left (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Island, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
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
(Great heavy vinyl in the original gatefold-style cover – and includes bonus download for the album, too!)

✨✧ Nick DrakePink Moon ... LP
Universal/Island (UK), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful treasure from the legendary Nick Drake – the last album he ever recorded – and a set that may well be his most personal as well! The sound here is even more stripped-down than before – often just vocals and acoustic guitar, but used together in ways that are really unique – inflected with lots of the jazzy phrasing that always made Nick so unique – and light years from any of the folkies who were his contemporaries! There's a very special Drake-like approach to the whole record – a heavenly sound that's never been duplicated again – and titles include the classic "Pink Moon", plus "Place To Be", "Road", "Parasite", "Ride", and "From The Morning".

Charles Gayle/William Parker/Hamid DrakeLive At Jazzwerkstatt Peitz ... CD
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 21.99
An instant classic from tenorist Charles Gayle – the kind of record that really makes the best of his deep-toned, soulful sound – thanks to a spirited trio setting that features William Parker on bass and Hamid Drake on drums! The recording is relatively recent, but the album's got those open, exploratory tenor passages that Charles brought to so many of his important records from years back – aspects that always made him stand out as one of the few free players who might still hold onto a sense of the deeper soulful qualities of the tenor. But half the record also features Gayle on piano – working with these angular lines that seem to begin in the territory of Monk and Herbie Nichols, then get freer as they move on – maybe somewhere in that balance that we love in the music of Misha Mengelberg, but somewhat more understated. Titles include the 28 minute tenor workout "Fearless", the shorter "Encore At Jazzwerkstatt", and the piano titles "Gospel", "Texturen", and "Angels". CD

✨✧ Mat Walerian/Matthew Shipp/Hamid DrakeJungle – Live at Okuden ... CD
ESP, 2016. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A new recording for the legendary ESP label – and one that definitely continues in the best tradition of their avant jazz sides from the 60s and 70s! The music here features the lineup of reedman Mat Walerian, pianist Matthew Shipp, and drummer Hamid Drake – coming together in space that's often open, and quite spiritual – maybe directed a bit more in the spirit of Walerian's style, in a way that makes for some especially compelling sounds from Shipp! Mat plays alto, bass clarinet, soprano clarinet, and flute – thinner reed lines that often demand some more sensitive sounds from Shipp's piano – although he can also be a bit bold at times, too – and Drake, as always, is the perfect accompanist no matter what direction the music takes – unfolding in a double-length live performance, with tracks that include "Ultimate Insurance", "Shrine", "Teleport", "Gentle Giants", "Gate", "Coach On Da Mic", "Tiger", "Sit Back Relax & Watch", and "Good Trip Is A Safe Trip".
