Kenny BarronTraveler ... CD
Sunnyside, 2008. Used ... $7.99
Another wonderful chapter in the recent career of Kenny Barron – a time when the pianist has really been stretching out from straighter trio modes, always offering up something new and exciting in his music! This time around, Kenny's got some really great help at a variety of levels – instrumentation that includes angular lines on soprano sax from Steve Wilson and earthy guitar from Lionel Loueke – plus a bit of vocals as well, sung by Ann Hampton Callaway, Gretchen Parlato, and Grady Tate – who each appear on one track apiece. The core group features Barron on piano, Kiyoshi Kitagawa on bass, and Francisco Mela on drums – and despite the shifting array of guests, the sound is nicely unified by their efforts – a definite Barron-balanced spirit that really drives the set. Titles include "The Traveler", "Clouds", "Speed Trap","Um Beijo", "The First Year", "Memories Of You", and "Phantoms". CD

John CorbettI'm Sick About My Hat ... CD
Atavistic, 1999. Used ... $1.99
The first of a projected series of solo releases by Chicago improviser, teacher, and journalist John Corbett. Corbett has been a hugely influential force in the left end of the musical spectrum for past 15 years – and has had an influence as promoter, player, and writer that has spread well on both sides of the Atlantic. This set is billed as the "first panel in the heavy friends triptych", and features Corbett with "Heavy Friends" (ala Lord Sutch) like David Grubbs, Mats Gustafsson, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Lou Mallozzi, Teri Kabsalis, Jeb Bishop, and Jane Baxter Miller. In some cases, the work of the individual players is a bit oblique – as Corbett fronts the whole project from the mixing board, and incorporates much of the musical performance into a larger tapestry of shades and influences. At others, though, they are crystal clear – as on the two tracks in which Terri Kapsalis and Jane Baxter-Miller contribute haunting vocal renditions of "Cold Sweat" and "Wee Small Hours Of The Morning", both of which completely transform the songs. Other titles include "1 of 1", "Speed Hump", "The Silent Treatment", and "Ready Kilowatt". Very nice stuff overall, and there's a lot more going on that we can hope to mention! CD

Peven EverettKissing Games ... CD
Mogul/Studio Confessions, 2002. Used ... $11.99
Another solo masterpiece from Peven Everett – underground soul at its finest, and a hand-made album by this unique artist who refuses to be held to the rules of the record companies! This set's much more uptempo than Peven's Speed Of Light album – jumping along in a lively groove with lots of house music influences and plenty of warm and soulful keyboards. Peven's vocals are more stripped down than before – spare, catchy, and really hitting the essence of his style. A few other tracks feature an unnamed female singer, and as with Peven's other work, the album's steeped in soulful instrumentation that reveals his rich heritage in jazz. Titles include "Sounds Like Paradise", "The Lillie Walk", "Puerto Rico", "Boy I Need", "For Sun Is Gold", and "Draining Pain". CD
(Out of print. Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

Fela & Africa 70Zombie (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Barclay (France), 1977. Used ... $9.99
One of Fela's greatest albums – augmented here by 2 bonus tracks! "Zombie" shows Fela at the height of his powers – grooving away in incredibly fast, incredibly tight Afro Funk lines, weaving guitar, sax, and keyboards together with a speed that still leaves us breathless. No wonder the track had a history of causing riots when it was played! "Mr Follow Follow" is a bit mellower, but even stronger on the message tip, and graced with a sublime snakey sax solo. The unreleased tracks include "Observation Is No Crime", a slow groover from 1978 with a full-on horn feel, and "Mistake", recorded at the Berlin Jazz Festival the same year, and an excellent number that features that spooky Sun Ra-like piano that Fela could cook up sometimes!

Piero PiccioniI Giovani Tigri ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1968. Used ... $14.99
A wild, late 60s soundtrack by maestro Piero Piccioni to the Italian rebellious teen/speed racing flick I Giovani Tigri, aka The Young Tigers! The mood ranges from groovy little mod arrangements on organ, bass and vibes, to wildly flailing jazzy drum work and horn arrangements. It's very cool stuff – with a great little groovy late 60s feel in the quieter spots, and an enormously colorful psychedelic jazz feel in the wilder moments! Tracks include various versions/suites on the films characters and themes "Abigaille", "I Giovani Tigri" and "Estate". 16 tracks in all! CD
(Please note that there is some wear to the digipack sleeve.)

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins Plus 4 (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Prestige, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crackling bit of hardbop from Sonny Rollins – and a session that has Sonny playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown group that included Bud Powell's brother Richie on piano! Sonny had already made a strong name for himself on albums issued under the Roach/Brown tag at the time, and here the group returns the favor by allowing Sonny to lead, and by giving him a good deal of time in the spotlight! Rollins' solo ability is risen to a razor-sharp level for the set – really getting fire, and managing to invent at a speed and sharpness that's simply amazing. Titles include Sonny's classic reading of "Pent-up House", plus "Valse Hot", "Kiss & Run", and "Count Your Blessings". CD

✨✧ Lee MorganGigolo (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tremendous work by Lee Morgan – easily one of his greatest albums, and a soaring session of modal energy that easily rivals the best work of the Impulse era! The album's got a slightly different feel than usual for Blue Note – a sense of freedom, joy, and soaring energy that's totally great – explored by a crack group that features Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Harold Mabern on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all coming together with a unique sense of creativity! The rhythm section is one of the key factors here – as Mabern, Cranshaw, and Higgins have a fluid groove that really sets the tone for the record – letting Morgan and Shorter stretch out to the height of their powers, and explore some incredible modal and soulful themes. Titles include the seminal 11 minute reading of "The Gigolo", plus "Yes I Can No You Can't", "Speedball", and "Trapped" – as well as an excellent reading of "You Go To My Head" that completely opens up the old standard! Plus, this CD reissue's got a bonus alternate take of "The Gigolo", for an extra 10 minutes of music! CD

✨✧ Lee MorganLee Morgan Live At The Lighthouse 1970 ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1970. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 2CD collection that features some incredible live work from one of Lee Morgan's greatest years! The title says "Lighthouse", but there's actually some discussion that the material may be from a live set recorded in San Francisco slightly before the famous Live At The Lighthouse album – a detail that seems to be supported by the differences in the tracks from some of the Blue Note Lighthouse material. The feel here is looser than some of Lee's studio work of the time – freely soulful, but never too outside – in an exploratory style that would have marked him one of the greatest trumpet voices of the 70s (next to Miles, Freddie Hubbard, and Woody Shaw) – had he not met an untimely death in 1972. The group features Bennie Maupin on saxes, Harold Mabern on piano, Jymie Merritt on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – and titles include "Peyote", "Ceora", "Speedball", "Meofelia", "Rakin & Scrapin", "Unjanna", "Something Like This", and "Willow Weep For Me".
