✨✧ Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, & Roy HargroveDirections In Music – Live At Massey Hall ... CD
Verve, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We have to admit, we had a lot of misgivings about this project before we gave it a chance and listened to it all the way through – but after all was said and done, we were quite impressed! While Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove and Michael Brecker all have the chops, recognition and reputations to make as many new recordings as they'd like, without resorting to pandering tributes, this project actually works beautifully and makes great sense. The group is rounded out by the elastic rhythms provided by John Patitucci (who seems to have graduated well beyond the sort of 6 string noodling he usually purveys) and Brian Blade. In most cases, we'd rather hear Miles doing Miles and Trane doing Trane, but this group manages to capture both the dark, brooding beauty of Miles' music and the deeper, soulful vein that Coltrane mined. Herbie sounds the best we've heard in ages and the highlight of this live set is a medley of Miles' "So What" and Coltrane's "Impressions", while the rest of the set is made up mostly of originals (2 more Coltrane pieces, "Naima" and "Tansition" are included) composed by members of the group like Hancock's "The Sorcerer" and Hargrove's "The Poet".

✨✧ D'AngeloBlack Messiah ... LP
RCA, 2014. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
D'Angelo comes back after many years awol from the studio – and the result is a stunning new step in his music! We've loved the man from day one – and some folks could well say that he really helped reinvigorate soul back in the 90s – and all his time away from the studio has definitely been formative, as he comes back here with a righteous power that really blows away all his previous work! D'Angelo still loves the slow beat and mellow approach to funk – but he's also picked up a lot more fuzz and freak, too – righteous energy that more than lives up to the Black Messiah promised by the title, as do the lyrics. Instrumentation includes work by Questlove on drums, Roy Hargrove on trumpet, and Jesse Johnson on guitar – and the grooves have these tripping, slow-percolating elements that really give the lyrics a great sort of crackle. More than worth the wait – as you'll hear on titles that include "Back To The Future (parts 1 & 2)", "Sugah Daddy", "Really Love", "1000 Deaths", "Ain't That Easy", "Betray My Heart", "The Door", and "Till It's Done (Tutu)".

Sullivan FortnerMoments Preserved ... CD
Impulse, 2018. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Sprightly piano work from Sullivan Foster – a pianist who seems to make the music leap from his nimble fingers with effortless ease! Foster's got a nicely blocky style of laying out the chords – one that's inherently rhythmic, even when things are mellow – which they often aren't, thanks to the sharp talents of Ameen Saleem on bass and Jeremy Clemmons on drums! The whole trio leaps around nicely – and makes a bit of space for trumpeter Roy Hargrove on two tracks, too – with titles that include "Pep Talk", "Elegy For Clyde Kerr Jr", "Beans & Cornbread", "Fantasy", "New Port", "The Solid Rock", and "Barbara's Strut".

Shirley HornShirley Horn With Friends ... CD
Verve, 1990s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
Shirley Horn may be working here with friends, but the lady herself is always strongly in the lead – a hell of a singer that never loses her cool – even in the company of musicians who include Wynton Marsalis, Miles Davis, Gary Bartz, Joe Henderson, Ahmad Jamal, and Roy Hargrove! The set brings together Shirley's work with these musicians and others – all taken from her fantastic comeback albums in the 90s for Verve – tunes that really resonate wonderfully here together, and remind us of the warm spirit that always made Horn's collaborations so great. 2CD set features 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "You Won't Forget Me", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Come Back To Me", "Ill Wind", "It Had To Be You", "Solitary Moon", "Summertime", "Bye Bye Love", "Maybe September", "Take Love Easy", "Once I Loved", "If You Were Mind", "Quietly There", "Beautiful Love", and "You'd Better Love Me While You May".

Jowee OmicilLet's Bash ... CD
Jazz Village (France), 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
Sweet reeds and plenty of Fender Rhodes – a set that has Jowee Omicil blowing soprano sax, alto, flute, and clarinet – over a set of tunes that move along with a gentle sort of groove! The album's got a nice polish, but is also hipper than smooth jazz too – with some rootsier currents from time to time, and just the right sort of use of electric elements, so that they never overwhelm the acoustic sound of the leader. Songs are dedicated to Ornette Coleman, Tinariwen, Roy Hargrove, and others – and titles include "Sur Le Pont D'Avignon", "A Si Pare", "Love & Honesty", "Something Clear", "Twa Groove", and "Pipillita".

✨✧ Helen MerrillBrownie – Homage To Clifford Brown ... CD
Verve, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later tribute to Clifford Brown from Helen Merrill – the vocalist who worked famously with the late trumpeter in the 50s! The feel here is quite different than the Merrill/Brown pairings for Emarcy, but equally dark throughout – handled in a way that often has Merrill's vocals offset by trumpet work from players who include Lew Soloff, Roy Hargrove, Tom Harrell, and Wallace Roney – each of whom add a slightly different flavor to the set, but are also clearly drawing strong inspiration from Brown. Torrie Zito handled arrangements, with that easygoing, mature quality that you'd expect – and rhythm is from the trio of Kenny Barron on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. Tracks include "Daahoud", "Born To Be Blue", "Your Eyes", "Brownie", "Don't Explain", "Largo", "I Remember Clifford", "Memories Of You", and "Joy Spring". CD

✨✧ Johnny O'NealIn The Moment ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Johnny O'Neal is a hell of a pianist, but here it's especially nice to hear him working with some horns – the trumpet of Roy Hargrove and tenor of Grant Stewart – who each get a chance to appear on a number of the album's tracks! At the heart of the record is the usual Johnny O'Neal trio format – with Johnny sometimes singing along, in that wonderfully unique voice of his – working alongside Ben Rubens on bass and Itay Morchi on drums. But when the horns come in, it really feels like something special happens – a bit more edge in the piano, and even the vocals as well – as if Johnny's sitting up even straighter, and bringing more of himself to the performance. The whole thing's great, though – and if you already love O'Neal's trio recordings, you'll find plenty to love – and may feel even more so on the other tracks too. Titles include "Sweet Monk", "Churchill Grounds", "Slow Hot Wind", "Please Be Kind", "CGLS", "People Make The World Go Round", "Sunday In New York", "Just A Dream", "Being In Love With You", and "Travelin Light".
