John ColtraneLegacy (4CD set) ... CD
Impulse, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4 CDs ... $13.99
A fantastic set of work by John Coltrane – a 4CD box set that's a lasting tribute to his genius, featuring mostly music from his best years at Impulse Records, plus selected bits from earlier years! The set features tracks selected by Ravi Coltrane, plus bonus material from the Coltrane family, an essay by Amiri Baraka, and some previously unissued material (where do they keep turning up all this stuff, anyway?) The package starts with Trane's more down to earth years, then picks up speed nicely as his music soared to the heavens on spiritual wings. Titles include "Nature Boy (first version)", "Venus", "Compassion", "Stablemates", "A Love Supreme (part 1)", "Offering", "Iris", "After The Rain", "Naima", "Miles Mode", "Liberia", "Village Blues", "Up Gainst The Wall", "Serenity", "Two Bass Hit", "One UP One Down (long version)', and "I Want To Talk About You".

Wynton MarsalisCiti Movement ... CD
Columbia, 1993. Used 2 CDs ... $3.99
A nice little take on the "city symphony" mode that was big in American music a few decades back – served up by the Wynton Marsalis Septet of the early 90s, with decidedly modern touches! The double-length album's a three-tiered affair – with part one standing out as Wynton's extended "Cityscape" – a tribute to New York, done in styles that range from mellow and contemplative, to more hustling and bustling, in true speed of the city. Next up is another suite of tracks titled "Transatlantic Echoes" – work that's still jazz-based, but with a nod to African roots in some of the percussion and phrasing. Last up is "Some Present Moments Of The Future" – the final suite of the album, and one that almost echoes some of the rootsier modes explored by Wynton in his southern trilogy of a few years before. Players include Wynton on trumpet, Todd Williams on tenor and soprano sax, Wes Anderson on alto, Wycliffe Gordon on trombone, Reginald Veal on bass, Herlin Riley on drums, and Eric Reed on piano – and the album also features some guest tenor from Herb Harris and a bit of piano by Marthaniel Roberts.

Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The title's a bit misleading – as a number of the tracks on here were recorded by Jacquet, and Webster only sat in on two longer jamming numbers – "I Wrote This For The Kid" and "The Kid & The Brute". Not that that's a problem – as those long numbers take up a good portion of the record, and are really driving numbers that have some conga in the rhythm section, which makes for a lively kick that really drives the tracks. The conga also surfaces in "Mambocito Mio", a Latin jammer that moves at the best cubop speed – and other tunes include "Saph", "September Song", and "Jacquet's Dilemma". 15 tracks in all on this limited edition CD.

✨✧ Junior ManceJunior Mance Trio At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands as one of his most compelling from the period – not just a batch of soul jazz styles that were soon becoming cliches, but a vibrant example of the full range of Mance's talents, caught in a very spontaneous setting. Trio members include Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Smokey Blues", "Bingo Domingo", "Looptown", "Letter From Home", and "Girl Of My Dreams". CD

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Daahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl".

Non PhixionFuture Is Now (premium box – 2CDs/3 x 7" singles/cassette/book) ... CD
Landspeed/Get On Down, 2002. Used ... $24.99
The underground classic from Non Phixion – in a box set billed as the "premium version", and they ain't kidding – it's loaded! Includes the original early 00s album on 2CDs – the vocal version and instrumental version. Also includes 3 X 7" singles – with "Black Helicopters", "They Got. . .", "Rock Stars", "The CIA Is Trying To Kill Me", "Drug Music" and "If You Got Love" – and a cassette titled The Past, The Present And The Future Is Now – with 21 tracks on it!!! We somehow managed to sleep on the original album for a couple years way back then, but woke up, thankfully. It's REALLY strong stuff, and its held up well over the years. Dark, paranoid satire as grisly as early Eminem, etc., with tight production by Necro, Pete Rock, Premier and others. Guest spots by Necro, the Beatnuts, MF Doom, Al Tariq and others. Titles include 'Drug Music", "The CIA Is Trying To Kill Me", "Rock Stars", "Black Helicopters", "Suicide Bomb" and "We Are The Future". Last, but not least, it all comes in a heavy duty box, and includes an 80 page, hardcover book of notes and photos. CD

Linda OhSun Pictures ... CD
Greenleaf, 2013. Used ... $5.99
Beautiful sounds from bassist Linda Oh – a very vivid set that definitely lives up to the pictures promised in the title! Oh's got this way of painting in sound that we really love – sometimes in a straighter jazz formation, sometimes with a more lyrical, open brush that really makes for magic in the music – an approach that few others could handle this way without falling into older cliches or overly-sentimental passages – but which Linda makes come across with the same sort of edge as her music with others. The group maintains the right sort of feel to realize Oh's vision – with Ben Wendel on trumpet, James Muller on guitar, and Ted Poor on drums – all very versatile players, especially Muller – whose tones really do a lot for the record. Titles include "Blue Over Gold", "Footfall", "Polyphonic HMI", "Shutterspeed Dreams", and "10 Minutes Till Closing". CD

John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... $4.99
The first, and arguably the best, of John Zorn's Naked City albums. The sound is extremely intense, and represents a blinding blend of influences, most of which Zorn had been showcasing in more easy going settings on previous albums. The core group includes Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith, and Joey Baron – plus a guest appearance by Yamatsuka Eye. Hard to find on vinyl, and with the titles "Demon Sanctuary", "Speedball", "James Bond Theme", "Ingenous Ejaculation", "I Want To Live", and "Latin Quarter". CD

✨✧ Ton TrioOn And On ... CD
Singlespeed, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work we've heard so far from alto saxophonist Aram Shelton – a player who's really coming into his own these days, and whose penned some fantastic original tracks for his Ton Trio project! The group features Aram spinning out these bold, soulful lines with Scott Brown on bass and Alex Vittum on drums – picking up on the sax trio format first explored by Sonny Rollins in his bold late 50s years – but taken to new heights here by Shelton's deft work on his instrument! The tunes are wonderful – filled with dark shadows and expressive passages – already captivating even before the individual players break out with bolder energy – and the record's one that will definitely have us keeping an even greater ear out for Shelton than ever before. Titles include "On & On", "We Were Told", "Let's All Go", "Layover", "Findings", "Turncoats", and "This Reminds Me". CD

Soul Fire, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the best funk ever recorded in modern years!

Titles include "Compin & Smokin" and "Damper Down Popcorn" by Calypso King & The Soul Investigators, "Haaa-Sheesh" and "Just Some More Haaa-Sheesh" by JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band, "Soul Safari" and "Two Beat Beast" by Speedometer, "I'm The Man" and "Your Love" by Lee Fields, "Majestic Soul" and "Welfare Line" by Third Point, "There It Is" and "Hook & Sling" by The Soul Command, and even tunes from the "Soul Fire Educational" single, a mass of funky drumbreaks!
