✨✧ Joe HarriottJoe Harriott Swings High ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1967. Used ... $10.99
A fantastic lost slice of work by one of the greatest modern jazz forces on the British jazz scene of the 60s – Jamaican-born saxophonist Joe Harriott, known for his groundbreaking avant jazz sessions and his experiments with Indian classical music! The sound here is quite different than those two better-known aspects of Harriott's career – and represents a return to the hardbop style he was using in the late 50s, when first making waves on the London scene. However, that's not a bad thing at all – as the album's overflowing with modern jazz undercurrents, and almost has a fresh post-Mingus approach to the horn parts and rhythm progressions. The quintet includes trumpeter Stu Hamer, drummer Phil Seaman, bassist Coleridge Goode, and pianist Pat Smythe – all well-suited players for Harriott in such a mode, and working here in a style that recalls the first great moments of British jazz from the late 50s. Titles include "Strollin South", "Just Goofin", "Time For Love", "The Rake", "Blues In C", and "Tuesday Morning Swing". CD

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!

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

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".

IrakereIrakere – Seleccion De Exitos Vol 2 1973-1978 ... LP
Egrem (Cuba), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $38.99
Killer 70s work from this legendary Cuban group! The record's better than most of their output outside of Cuba, and it features a stunning mix of Latin grooves and electric funky elements, in a manner that's very similar to some of the NuYorican groups in America during the time. The great Chucho Valdes is at the head of the group, and even though the band decides to cut versions of a few classical tunes, the groove is still hard and heavy – and the sound is a wonderful example of the rich growth that was happening on the Cuban music scene during the 70s. Titles include "Los Caramelos", "Que Se Sepa, Yo Soy De La Habana", and "Siete Tazas De Cafe". LP, Vinyl record album
(In great shape!)

IrakereIrakere – Seleccion De Exitos Vol 2 1973-1979 ... LP
Areito (Cuba), Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Great stuff from this legendary Cuban jazz group – live material, and arguably better than even their studio LPs from the time! All the material in the set was recorded live at different points during the mid 70s – and it's all got a great style that mixes up Latin jazz with electric funk, and which has loads of great keyboard and guitar riffing. Titles include "Bacalao Con Pan", "Taka Taka Ta", "La Semilla", "Cha-Cha-Cha", and "Baila Mi Ritmo". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ IrakereLive At Ronnie Scott's ... CD
World Pacific, 1991. Used ... $9.99
The legendary Cuban jazz group, caught live before a very enthusiastic audience at London's Ronnie Scott's Club. Pianist Chucho Valdes is in great form, and he arranged and composed all the tracks on the set, including "Mr. Bruce", "Neurosis", and "Flute Notes". All tracks are nice and long, with a strong Latin jazz feel. 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

✨✧ Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, K Jordan & W Parker2 Days In April ... CD
Eremite, 1994. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two great days in April – each featuring some very free improvisation from a group that includes Fred Anderson and Kidd Jordan on tenors, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – a quartet with boundless energy, and a really rich sense of each other's place within the sound! The first day features a performance from Amherst, and a relatively fiery one at that – with these unbridled sounds from all players, and some especially tremendous saxophone lines from Anderson and Jordan – often soaring out together, but with a very individual sense of space. The second day is slightly more measured – a Cambridge performance that has some nice solo spots for each player. Both dates are very well-recorded – and packaged in the usual high Eremite standard!

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!

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

✨✧ Sophia Domancich/William Parker/Hamid DrakeWashed Away ... CD
Marge (France), 2008. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Open Systems Quartet (Tsahar/Ragin/Kowald/Drake)Open Systems Quartet ... CD
Marge (France), 2001. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Far Out (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe a more jagged cut than you'd expect from Ivan Conti – but that's also because IG Culture changes things up nicely on his mix – complicating the rhythms, which are already quite complex! That approach follows on the flipside – where the mixes also take Conti a long way from the Brazilian roots you'd expect – into a sweet London blend of broken beats and jazz! 12-inch, Vinyl record
