Karin Krog & Dexter GordonSome Other Spring – Blues & Ballads ... LP
Sonet (Sweden), 1970. Near Mint- ... $24.99
The icy voice of Norwegian singer Karin Krog is a perfect match for Dexter's deep soulful saxophone, and the two of them perform wonderfully together in this rare set of tracks recorded in 1970 with Kenny Drew on piano and Niel Henning Orsted-Peterson on bass. Krog has always been tremendously respectful of the players that she records with, and unlike other jazz vocal recordings, where the soloists take back seat to the singer, her recordings have them coming out front, and really sharing the spotlight – both in solo space, and in the interplay between the singer and musicians. Tracks include "Blue Eyes", "How Insensitive", "Some Other Spring", "Blue Monk", and her "Tribute To Jimmy Scott". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with insert – and autographed by Karin Krog, Kenny Drew, and NHOP!)

George RussellEssence Of George Russell ... LP
Sonet (Sweden), 1966/1967. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Seminal Swedish recordings from George Russell – mid 60s material that's quite different than his American albums of a few years before – and proof that his time overseas really helped to unlock his creativity! The centerpiece of the album is an early version of "Electronic Sonata For Souls Loved By Nature" – a tune recorded often by Russell, but done here in a stunning 60 minute version that really opens up wonderfully – a flurry of horn parts played by a larger group that includes Lennart Aberg on tenor and soprano, Arne Domnerus on alto and clarinet, Jan Garbarek on tenor, Berndt Egerbladh on vibes, Bengt Hallberg on piano, and Terje Rypdal on guitar – all key Scandinavian modernists, really given sharp focus here by Russell! The "sonata" got a romping, rhythmic pulse that really holds things together – even when the horns get a bit free – and it's followed by the equally great "Now & Then", which echoes a bit of the main theme, then goes way off into left field! The 2LP set also features "Concerto For Self-Accompanied Guitar", played by Rune Gustaffson. LP, Vinyl record album
(Soul Note pressing.)

Jukka TolonenCrossection ... LP
Sonet (UK), 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Funky fusion from Finnish guitarist and keyboardist Jukka Tolonen – mostly full-on tracks with a fierce jamming approach, but handled with a nice bit of funk in the drums! The tunes have that mixture of jazz and rock playing that you'll find in a lot of the European fusion albums from the time – with angular soprano sax cutting out most of the riffs, followed by keyboards and guitar. Titles include "Hysterica", "Tiger", "Northern Lights", and "Windermere Avenue". LP, Vinyl record album
(US promo on Janus. Cover has light ring & edge wear.)

✨✧ Tom PrehnAxiom ... LP
Sonet/Rune Grammafon (Norway), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest free jazz albums of the European 60s scene – a set that was originally intended for release by Sonet Records, pressed up in test records for the musicians, then denied release because they felt that they'd already moved past the performance! Yet in the space of over 50 years, the music still sounds remarkably fresh – an early, striking, and stunning example of the way that the European avant jazz scene was not only overtaking the American one, but also providing the kind of energy that would be a key inspiration for artists like Albert Ayler or Cecil Taylor! Pianist Tom Prehn offers up a lot of the latter here – boundless piano lines that leap forward into space with a frenzied, yet tuneful approach – followed by tremendous tenor from Frits Krogh, a player we don't know at all – but who blows powerfully and soulfully, at a level that maybe even prefaces some of John Coltrane's more outside material to come. The rest of the group features Poul Ehlers on bass and Finn Slumstrup on drums – and the album features the full "Axiom (parts 1 & 2)" performance from the Sonet album! LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered limited edition of 500!)

Maynard FergusonLive From San Francisco ... LP
PAJ, 1984. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Maynard Ferguson live – and still holding onto all the great sort of grooves he cooked up in the studio during the 70s! The performance is from a 1984 appearance at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall – and Maynard's got the group in super-tight, super-soulful formation – with a very strong focus on the rhythms at the bottom, but plenty of room for spirited solos over the top – including work by Ferguson on trumpet, Tim Reis on soprano and alto, Steve Wiest on trombone, and Gregg Bissonette on drums. Titles include "Coconut Champagne", "Fireshaker", "Ganesha", "Bebop Buffet", and "South 21st Shuffle". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Live From San Francisco ... CD 9.99
