Barry MilesWhite Heat ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
An overlooked gem from keyboardist Barry Miles – and one of the most compelling early 70s sides on the Mainstream Records label! Barry's got a way of really making his keys sing out nicely – playing both acoustic and electric piano with plenty of warm tones and gently flowing modes – but never in a way that's too far out from jazz, or too smooth to be sleepy. The set features twin guitars from Pat Martino and John Abercrombie, both of whom underscore the chromatic nature of Miles' playing – and other players include Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, Victor Gaskin on bass, Terry Silverlight on drums, and Warren Smith on congas. Titles are mostly Miles originals – and include "Descent", "Tangent", "White Heat", and "Little Heart Of Pieces". CD

The issue also announces the Prog God 2017, and includes interviews with Snarky Puppy, Pye Hastings, Mogwai, Kim Seviour, The Tangent, and others – and also features a bonus CD, with 10 new prog rock tracks!

Chico FreemanTangents ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Surprisingly dark music for a mid 80s major label jazz album – especially one that features guest work from Bobby McFerrin! Chico Freeman's definitely keeping true to his adventurous roots here – blowing some sharply angular lines on a range of reeds, and exploring both older jazz freedoms and some newer 80s experimental moments – all in a lineup with Mark Thompson on piano, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Jay Hoggard on vibes, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. Kenny Werner plays a bit of synth at times – in some dark-toned 80s modes – and although Bobby McFerrin is billed strongly on the cover, the album only seems to feature a bit of his vocalizations. Titles include "Sangoma & Nelly", "You Are The One", "Spook & Fade", "Tangents", "Ballad For Hakima", and "Sir Tashi & The Yeti". CD

Jimmy GiuffreCool One – The Tangents In Jazz & Four Brothers Sessions ... CD
Capitol/Giant Steps (UK), 1954/1955. Used ... $9.99
Seminal west coast modern work from Jimmy Giuffre – both of his mid 50s classics for Capitol Records, back to back on one CD! The self-titled album Jimmy Giuffre is from 1954 – and was incredible work from one of the freshest new voices in jazz at the time! The album takes tracks from an original 10" LP session, and adds in a few more – so that you've got Jimmy playing tenor, clarinet, or baritone – in groups that include west coast cool players like Jack Sheldon, Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Russ Freeman, and Ralph Pena. The writing's quite original, and Giuffre's already got that angular quality that will allow him to leap even further over the next few years. Titles include "Nutty Pine", "Wrought Of Iron", "Do It", "All For You", and "Sultana" – as well as the classic "Four Brothers". On Tangents In Jazz, Giuffre begins his experiments in jazz without a "non-pulsating beat" –, jazz without snapping cymbal, walking bass, or pounding piano to provide a steady pulse! The group on the LP includes Ralph Pena on bass, Artie Anton on drums, and Jack Sheldon on trumpet – and the four musicians play together in beautifully fragile little lines, which arc up and back, and come together with a sense of grace and surprise. Tracks include "The Leprechaun", "Scintilla Three", "Rhetoric", and "Chirpin Time". 20 tracks in all – most original compositions by Giuffre! CD

Gary PeacockTangents ... CD
ECM, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Fantastic sounds from bassist Gary Peacock – an artist whose genius has never dimmed in all the many years he's been recording for the ECM label! This album recalls the special sort of approach that Gary first brought to a small group setting back in the 70s – a way of putting the bass forward, and redirecting energy from more familiar trio settings – even when they were led by a bassist. Gary's almost completely freed up from any sort of rhythmic role, and delivers these round, spacious notes with almost a painterly-like pace – augmented brilliantly by the chromatic hues of Marc Copland on piano, and punctuated carefully by drummer Joey Baron – whose work here reminds us how great he can be when he's really in the right space. Titles include "In & Out", "Empty Forest", "Contact", "December Greenwings", "Tempei Tempo", "Cauldron", and "Blue In Green". CD

✨✧ Jimmy GiuffreTangents In Jazz ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Jimmy Giuffre's excellent early LPs for Capitol, and a nice blend of west coast styles with more modernist experimentation. Here, Giuffre begins his experiments in jazz without a "non-pulsating beat", that is, jazz without snapping cymbal, walking bass, or pounding piano to provide a steady pulse. The group on the LP includes Ralph Pena on bass, Artie Anton on drums, and Jack Sheldon on trumpet, and the four musicians play together in beautifully fragile little lines, which arc up and back, and come together with a sense of grace and surprise. Tracks include "The Leprechaun", "Scintilla Three", "Rhetoric", and "Chirpin Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Kim FowleyLord Of Garbage (paperback) ... Book
Norton/Kicks, 2012. New Copy ... $12.99 13.95
Kim Fowley, an author? Stranger things have happened – and given Fowley's penchant for putting his finger in just about every pie that came within reach, the whole thing's no surprise at all! The book is a stunning account of Fowley's important years in the music business – working in the sometimes lowest reaches of the LA scene, yet sometimes hitting the highest heights too – all told in really interesting detail, with a pacing that's completely unique! At lots of points, it kind of feels like Kim's telling you the story of his life over a few dozen drinks at the bar – with all the tangents you might expect – but at other times, there's this lucidity that's right in line with the Fowley genius in the studio – that way of being and going crazy while still holding all your cool – summed up perfectly in these few lines near the end of the book: "Well this is my version of what happened to me. I don't know if it really happened or not, but I think it did. I'm holding back a lot of stuff because it's too overwhelming in its darkness and it would be a sad read." Book
