Rufus HarleyCourage – The Complete Atlantic Recordings ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 18.98
A treasure trove of music from one of the hippest jazz players ever – the legendary Rufus Harley, a saxophonist by trade, but one who could also play the bagpipes as well! Harley had a really unique way of using the bagpipes as a free-flowing modal soloing instrument – one that's clearly influenced by the best work of John Coltrane in the early 60s, and which really takes the instrument back to its original pre-Scottish roots in Africa! This wonderful set brings together 4 of Harley's best albums ever – Bagpipe Blues, Tribute To Courage, Kings/Queens, and Scotch & Soul – all gems recorded for Atlantic Records in the 60s, and which are presented here with 2 bonus tracks as well! Harley plays both bagpipes and saxophone on the record – the latter in a way that's equally compelling as the former – and the 2CD set features a whopping 28 tracks in all, supported by liner notes and other details. Titles include "Ali", "Where Have All The Flowers Gone", "Pipin The Blues", "Sufur", "Scotch & Soul", "Feeling Good", "Taurus The 20th", "Bagpipe Blues", "Kerry Dancers", "More", "Sunny", "A Tribute To Courage", "About Trane", "Eight Miles High", and "Love Is Blue".

✨✧ Rufus HarleyPied Piper Of Jazz ... CD
Atlantic/Label M, Late 60s. Used ... $7.99
Fantastic work from one of the most unique talents in jazz! Rufus Harley plays bagpipes – yes, that's right, bagpipes – in a modal Coltrane-esque way that's simply got to be heard to be believed. He uses the drone capability of the instrument to explore reed patterns in the same way that Coltrane did, inspired a bit by Eastern sounds, especially Indian music, but also working in an Afro-centric mode that reclaims the bagpipes as an instrument rooted in the middle east (where it was first picked up by soldiers during the crusades, and brought north to Scotland.) The whole thing might sound incredibly silly, but when you hear the music, you'll be convinced – and this CD is set up to do just that. The collection takes 9 tracks from Rufus glory days at Atlantic Records during the late 60s – and features Harley not only on bagpipes, but on tenor, soprano, and flute – playing in groups that feature players like Roy Ayers, Herbie Mann, Sonny Stitt, James Glenn, and Don Patterson. Titles include "Feelin Good", "Flute Bag", "Taurus The 20th", "More", "Sufur", and "Pipin The Blues". CD

Herbie Mann with Rufus HarleyWailing Dervishes ... LP
Atlantic, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the coolest albums ever from Herbie Mann – and a set that's definitely got the vibrant sound you'd expect from its title and cover! The set's a live one, and pretty open at times – and the great Rufus Harley joins Mann's group for one track – in a really mad mix of sounds that also includes lots of other exotic instrumentation too! Roy Ayers plays vibes on about half the set – and other instrumentation includes oud, dumbek, and zither – set over modal rhythms that have a very strong Eastern vibe! Titles include "Wailing Dervishes", "Flute Bag", "In the Medina", and "Armenian Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny Stitt with Rufus Harley & Robin KenyattaDeuces Wild ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little Sonny Stitt album – very different than any of his other sets from the 60s! The album has a number of interesting aspects – from hard-wailing organ by Wilmer Mosby (who we think is Don Patterson under a fake name), to some screaming guest work by Rufus Harley and Robin Kenyatta. Sonny and Kenyatta sound especially great together, and on the track "In The Bag" Stitt's alto blends right in with Kenyattas, for an hard-wailing sound that's enough to shatter your windows, glasses, and contact lenses. Harley's work is equally great on the cut "Pipin The Blues", and with Sitt playing the sax parts, Rufus is free to really work those jazz bagpipes! Other tracks include "Deuces Wild", "Blues Ahead", and "Sittin In With Stitt". CD

✨✧ Rufus HarleyBagpipes Of The World (3CD set) ... CD
Transparency, 1995/2002/2006. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really loving tribute to the late Rufus Harley – and a massive 3CD set of work that's quite different than his older recordings on the market! This set brings together live performances and some radio work done by Harley in the last decade or so of his life – really haunting music that shows an even deeper side of Rufus' jazz talents than we've ever heard on record! CD 1 features a rare performance by Harley in France, with the trio of pianist Georges Arvanitas – recorded in 1995, a decade or so after his studio album with the group – and these tracks are mixed with solo bagpipe numbers by Rufus – which makes for a very compelling mix. The jazz tracks have Harley on both bagpipes and soprano sax – and include "Summertime", "My Shining Hour", "It's Me", "We Me Us", and "Moon River" – mixed with untitled solo tracks, and a radio interview. CD 2 features the last Rufus Harley interview ever – nearly an hour long, and recorded on WHUS in 2006. Remaining tracks on the disc, plus more on the third disc, feature trumpeter America Patton Harley – playing with a cool group that includes Andy LaVerne on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and John Riley on drums – and another group that features Harold Mabern, Ron Carter, and Adam Nussbaum – on titles that include "A New Love Supreme", "Mr PC", "Naima", "Noah's Ark", and "Soultrane". Then, most of CD 3 features Rufus and Patton, playing together live in Jamaica in 2002 – a pretty unique performance that has Harley Sr on bagpipes and soprano sax, and Harley Jr on trumpet – with some electric backing from a Jamaican combo – on titles that include "Stormy Weather", "The Crack", "Melodies Of The World", "Scotland The Brave", and "Someday My Prince Will Come".

✨✧ Rufus HarleyRe-Creation Of The Gods ... CD
Ankh/Transparency, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most legendary albums of jazz funk ever recorded! Rufus Harley was a saxophone player who also picked up the bagpipes for a few excellent 60s albums for Atlantic Records – and although those records are great, this 1972 independent album is a real mind blower! By the time of this set, Rufus had really stretched out – both creatively and spiritually – working his standard bagpipe jazz groove into a much trippier sound, one that explored the tonal and modal properties of the instrument. Not only that, Rufus got a lot funkier than ever before – working here with organist Bill Mason, a sonic contemporary of Leon Spencer and Charles Earland – and the resultant mix of organ and bagpipes creates a monstrous sound that's unlike anything we can describe! The album's a mixture of Sufi and Biblical statements – fused into long funky jazz tracks, stretching out into some incredible grooves. Includes the classic "Malika", plus the cuts "Etymology", "Hypothesis", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", done in a great heavy version! CD also features a bonus 10 minute jam not on the original album! CD

Paul Dunmall & Chris CorsanoIdentical Sunsets ... CD
ESP, 2010. Used ... $6.99
A great return to the ESP Records avant jazz tradition – a new recording that features spare duets between tenor saxophonist Paul Dunmall and drummer Chris Corsano! Dunmall actually starts out the record on border pipes – a bagpipe-like instrument that makes for a weird, wild Rufus Harley-esque solo jam – before he switches to tenor, and works with Corsano in just the sort of freewheeling, hard-edged jazz that ESP first started recording back in the 60s! Tracks are long, and titles include "Identical Sunsets", "Living Proof", "Better Get Another Lighthouse", and "Out Of Sight". CD

✨✧ Laurie AndersonBig Science ... CD
Warner, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences that would mire down performance art in years to come. Instead, she's got a clean, clear style that's simply amazing – spoken passages that are poetic and pointed, but which also have a slight undercurrent of wit – a charming quality that never takes itself too seriously, even when the sounds and styles are somewhat dark. Instrumentation includes some great rhythm passages from David Van Tieghem, plus surprising performances from Rufus Harley on bagpipes and George Lewis on trombone. Titles include "From The Air", "Big Science", "O Superman", "Born Never Asked", "Walking & Falling", "Example #22", "Let X = X", and "It Tango". CD

✨✧ Sonny RollinsCutting Edge ... CD
Milestone/OJC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An underrated 70s effort from Sonny Rollins, featuring him fronting a dynamite group with Stanley Cowell and Mtume at the height of their Afro-centric electric jazz period. Longtime sideman Bob Cranshaw plus David Lee round out the rhythm section, and this is one of Rollins' LPs featuring the excellent Japanese guitarist Masuo, plus Rufus Harley guests on one number, so you can guess this is one righteous affair. Rollins sounds awesome, laying extended solos over some tremendous funky vamps by the group on numbers like "The Cutting Edge" and "First Moves", and working in a more contemplative vein on "To A Wild Rose" and "A House Is Not A Home". Also includes a lengthy take on "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot". CD

✨✧ Herbie MannFamily Of Mann/Wailing Dervishes ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
2 very unusual albums from Herbie Mann. On Family Of Mann, Herbie plays a variety of flutes, in a variety of strange instrumental sessions on this vaguely exotic album from the early 60s. Some of the cuts have some slight Latin elements, and a bit of Latin percussion, and others have a bit more of a mystical feel. Dave Pike plays vibes, Ray Barretto's on congas, and Herbie plays a bunch of strange flutes! Titles include "Guinean", "The Puppet", "Shein Vi Di Levone", and "Moanin". Wailing Dervishes is even better – one of the best Herbie Mann albums from the 60s, and a very cool live set that features some great guest work by Rufus Harley – playing his usual crazy soul jazz bagpipes – plus nice work by Roy Ayers and Reggie Workman. Added to the mix are some crazy Middle Eastern percussionists – and the tracks are nice and long with a hauting modal feel. Titles include "Wailing Dervishes", "Flute Bag", "In the Medina", and "Armenian Lullaby". CD
