VariousJazz Chillout ... CD
Blue Note/EMI, 2002. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
New and old Blue Note collide in this jam-packed 2CD set of tracks! Forget the "chillout" in the title, because a good portion of the set is real jazz from the old days, and the rest is newer material, based around the older ideals of the Blue Note idiom. Together, the music makes for a nice little package of tracks, shifting with ease from classic to future, stepping through a wider array of catalog than you might expect. Titles include "More Than This" by Charlie Hunter with Norah Jones, "Loungin" by Guru with Donald Byrd, "She's A Lady" by Patricia Barber, "Sun At Midnight" by Jason Moran, "Slow Bombing The World" by Marc Jordan, "Flute Down" by Karl Denson, "Off The Record" by Ronny Jordan, "Harvest Moon" by Cassandra Wilson, "God Bless The Child" by Stanley Turrentine, "Cantaloop (inst)" by US3, "Light My Fire" by Julie London, "Ashes" by Greg Osby, "Slow Drag" by Donald Byrd, "Soul Manifesto" by Rodney Jones, "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky" by Lou Donaldson, and "It's Your Thing" by Grant Green. 24 tracks on 2CDs!

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceComin' On! (previously unissued tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful! London-based, West Indies-born trumpeter Dizzy Reece was one of the most fantastic trumpet talents of the late 50s and early 60s – as you'll clearly hear on this previously unreleased session recorded by Blue Note in 1960. Reece had an incredible tone that managed to be very polished and sparkling, yet still stay incredibly soulful, especially when paired with good players – as on this CD! The sessions feature 2 different groups – one with Stanley Turrentine (at a good raw early tone here), Bobby Timmons, and Art Blakey; the other with Turrentine, Duke Jordan, and obscure tenorist Musa Kaleem. Both groups are great, and the record is quite possibly the best that Dizzy recorded for Blue Note – which makes it even more strange that the material was not issued until now. Titles include "Achmet", "Ye Olde Blues", "The Case Of The Frightened Lover", and "Sands". 9 tracks in all, and a delight throughout! CD

Emmylou HarrisRoses In The Snow (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Rhino, 1980. Used ... $4.99
One of Emmylou's best, most rewardingly sweet, yet dusty albums. After the Gram Parsons days, the girl could seemingly do no wrong – until the big-haired mid 80s came along anyway – but Roses In The Snow still manages to stand out among the great ones. She was always reverent of her heroes and heroines – nursing a much stronger bluegrass and old timey jones on Roses than you would typically find on a record by a 70s non-outlaw country iconoclast. She covers the Stanleys' "Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn", the Louvins' "You're Learning", the Carters' "Gold Watch And Chain", and 2 previously unissued Hank Williams covers – "You're Gonna Change" and "Root Like A Rose". Still, Emmylou was the queen of cosmic American music at this point, and brings the fragile, breathy intensity to the record you could always (and still can) expect from her at her best. Guests include Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton. Other tracks include "You're Learning", and "Jordan". A long, LONG overdue remastered issue of this great record! CD
