✨✧ Dizzy ReeceStar Bright ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily 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! LP, Vinyl record album
(UA pressing – in great shape! Cover has a very small cut corner.)

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 ... $8.99 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! The volume is big – almost 450 pages, hardcover, full color – and as filled with thoughtful writing as it is with beautiful images – a real treasure that will help you unlock the magic of Pink Moon, Bryter Layter, and Five Leaves Left!

Cash Money, 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 34.98
A sprawling set from the prolific Drake – a nearly 70 minute record that was originally released digitally for free –ultimately of a caliber to come out as a legit, no less than chart-topping proper album! Includes "Legend", "Energy", "10 Bands", "Know Yourself", "No Tellin'", "Madonna", "6 God", "Star67", "Preach" with Partynextdoor, "Used To" with Lil Wayne, "Now & Forever", "Jungle", "How Bout Now", "My Side", the bonus track "6PM In New York" and more. 19 in all.

Hamid Drake & BinduBindu ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2005. Used ... $9.99
Really righteous work from the Chicago scene – a very hip album that features some especially nice guest work on flute from Nicole Mitchell! The group is headed up by percussionist Hamid Drake, who really sounds great here – almost more relaxed and organic in his handling of drums and tablas than on other records – really settling into a sound that recalls the glory days of the earlier AACM scene. Other players are well-matched for this vibe – and include Ernest Dawkins on tenor and alto, Daniel Carter on saxes and clarinet, Sabir Mateen on saxes and bass clarinet, and Greg Ward on alto and clarinet – all players whose reeds work together beautifully, with tight formations at some points, and much freer solo sounds at others. Titles include "Bindu #2 For Baba Fred Anderson", "Remembering Rituals", "Born Upon A Lotus", "Bindu #1 For Ed Blackwell", and "Do Khyentse's Journey 139 Years & More". CD

✨✧ Nick DrakePink Moon ... CD
Island/Hannibal, 1972. Used ... $3.99
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". CD

Drake & FutureWhat A Time To Be Alive ... LP
Cash Money, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Drake and Future collabo with the former showing once again he's in for the long haul – working fast and freely creative on grittier edge with a hungry partner still on the ris e at this point! Pretty strong work from both parties here. Includes "Digital Dash", "Big Rings", "Live From The Gutter", "Diamonds Dancing", "Plastic Bag", "I'm The Plug", "Change Locations", "Jumpman", "Jersey" and "30 For 30 Freestyle".

IrakereIrakere (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
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)". CD features bonus tracks "Baila Mi Ritmo", "Xiomara", and "Por Romper El Coco". CD

Mandrake SomSombossa ... LP
EMI (Italy), 1975. Very Good+ ... $49.99
One of the greatest bossa jazz albums of the 70s – and recorded by an Italian group, no less! The album's the first standout classic from percussionist Mandrake – recorded with a tight little combo that includes guitar, piano, bass, and some extra-nice tenor sax! The tenor really helps give the album a solidly soulful feel – pushing the record past just breesy bossa jazz, and giving it a harder-edged sound that's made it a classic for years. A few tracks have vocals as well – and the album features a killer version of "Berimbau", plus the cuts "O Dia Em Que Eu Morrer", "Deixa Isso Pra La", and "Soul Samba". Great, and hard to find in any format! LP, Vinyl record album

Open Systems Quartet (Tsahar/Ragin/Kowald/Drake)Open Systems Quartet ... CD
Marge (France), 2001. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
The group name's a bit mysterious, but we can say that these guys definitely have an open approach to their music – one that really allows a lot of flow from the trumpet of Hugh Ragin, and the tenor and bass clarinet of Assif Tsahar! The group come together as a piano-less quartet – with Peter Kowald on bass and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion – a wonderful lineup who take the music into richer, freer directions as well – with some especially strong contributions from Kowald and Drake! It's been awhile since we've heard Peter's bass in a setting this bold – and the result is wonderful – and Hamid is pretty fierce at times on the drums, although other moments feature some of his more lyrical percussion passages. Titles include a great long take on Ornette's "Lonely Woman" – plus "The Call", "Dream Weavers", "Standing Motion", "Fathers & Mothers", and "The Lizards In The Maze". CD

✨✧ Sophia Domancich/William Parker/Hamid DrakeWashed Away ... CD
Marge (France), 2008. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Extremely beautiful work from this trans-Atlantic trio – a group that mixes the lyrical piano talents of Sophia Domancich with the rock-solid rhythms of Hamid Drake and William Parker! Sophia's touch on the keys is really beautiful – improvised at points, but with a lot of warmth – and her tone really seems to set Drake and Parker's talents in a whole new light – a sound that's quite a revelation, and which makes this CD a lot more than we were expecting! The performance features three long numbers, handled beautifully by the trio – often starting with Sophia's ruminations on the piano, soon filled in with bass from Parker and percussion from Drake. Titles include the wonderful "Washed Away" – plus "Lonely Woman" and "The Seagulls Of Kristiansund". CD

✨✧ Hamid Drake/Sylvain KassapHeads Or Tails ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2007/2013. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Peter Brotzmann/Hamid Drake/Kent KesslerLive At The Empty Bottle ... CD
Okka Disk, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Another one of those great Limited Edition sessions from Okka Disk – limited to 800 hand numbered copies, and every one of them numbered and authentic! The session was recorded live at Chicago's legendary Empty Bottle, during one of Peter Brotzmann's recent productive visits to the city. As with most of Brotzmann's Okka recordings, this one shows him working beautifully with some of Chicago's bourgeoning avant jazz talent – in this case, the rhythm section of Hamid Drake and Kent Kessler. Of course, if you've heard either of those two players, you know that they do a lot more than just provide rhythm, and they rise to the occasion and match Brotzmann's usual uncanny creativity in a live setting. Two long tracks – "Something From Your Heart" and "Crest Of The Wave". CD
(Out of print, limited hand-numbered edition of 800.)
