Stone AllianceLive In Bremen ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A rare European performance from the Stone Alliance trio – one that was recorded at the same time as their legendary run of albums for the PM label, but never issued at the time! The tracks are nice and long here, and the group really break out – still every bit as tight as on their well-remembered albums of hard funk and heavy jazz, but with some freer elements at times – especially from Steve Grossman's tenor on his long solos, and also from percussionist Don Alias on one long track that's just a 9 minute solo on congas! Other titles include a nice reading of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", plus "Samba De Negro", "Sweetie Pie", "King Tut", and "Taurus People". CD

Stone AllianceStone Alliance Con Amigos ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A really great setting for this legendary 70s combo – a record that has the core Stone Alliance trio coming into play with a host of Argentine musicians who really open up their sound! The core energy is still super-sharp – that magical combination of the saxes of Steve Grossman, bass of Gene Perla, and drums of Don Alias – but the sound takes on whole new dimensions with added keyboards, percussion, and bandoneon – used in different ways throughout to create warmer, lyrical elements. Titles include "Taking A Good Long Look", "Amigos", "I'll Tell You Tomorrow", "Miss T", and "Mujeres Sud Americans". CD

Stone Alliance with Jan HammerLive In Berlin ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
The Stone Alliance combo meet up with keyboard giant Jan Hammer right in the years before he hit big fame through Miami Vice – and at a time when his freewheeling fusion vibe was just right for the energy of the group! The lineup here is a bit different than earlier Stone Alliance records – Bob Mintzer handles the reeds, blowing soprano, tenor, bass clarinet, and flute – and Kenny Kirkland plays both keyboards and piano – while the core energy generation unit of Gene Perla on bass and Don Alias on drums really keep things moving. Titles include "Arfonk", "Miss T", "Risa", "Kimmy & Donnie", and "Para Los Papinos". CD

✨✧ Stone AllianceStone Alliance ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1975/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great sharp edge he brought to his initial early recordings in the post-Coltrane years! But there's also a deeper sound going on here, too – a bit of funk, and definitely a bit of Latin in the percussion and basslines – which makes for these grooves that are as complicated as they are infectious – often given some sweet spiritual tones from the reeds on top! The lineup features Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums and percussion – all working together with tremendous energy, but a great focus too – always soulful, and never too jamming at all. Titles include the insane break track "Sweetie Pie", plus Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", "Duet", "King Tut", "Samba De Negro" and "Vaya Mulatto". CD
