Wadada Leo SmithSolo – Reflections & Meditations On Monk ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith never fails to blow us away – and even though he's captured our ear with recent higher-concept projects or other group work, he sounds equally mindblowing here in a completely solo setting! As you'd guess from the title, the set's based around the musical vision of Thelonious Monk – territory not often explored on solo trumpet, and handled beautifully here by Smith – both on his long extrapolations based on Monk's compositions, and on his own tunes dedicated to Monk – which are these bold, brilliant paintings in sound that the legendary pianist would have been proud to hear. We're not sure what's in the water over at Smith's house, but he's really had this amazing blossom of fresh creativity in recent years – as you'll hear on his compositions here, entitled "Monk & His Five Point Ring At The Five Spot Cafe", "Monk & Bud Powell At Shea Stadium", and "Adagio Monkishness – A Cinematic Vision Of Monk Playing Solo" – alongside versions of Monk tunes that include "Ruby My Dear", "Reflections", "Round Midnight", and "Crepuscule With Nellie".

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithNajwa ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wadada Leo Smith is really on fire here – on a record that feels a lot more like something from the early 80s underground than some of his earlier work – from the lineup of performers, right down to the overall sound of the set! The group's very heavy on guitars – and features work from Michael Gregory Jackson, Henry Kaiser, Brandon Ross, and Lamar Smith on the instrument – often criss-crossing and weaving these beautiful sonic textures – powerful, but never too noisy, and augmented beautifully by some surprisingly thoughtful bass work by Bill Laswell – whose at his most subtle and collaborative here. The rest of the lineup features Pheeroan AkLaff on drums and Adam Rudolph on piano – and Wadada's trumpet really soars to the skies on the longer tracks, which include "Ornette Coleman's Harmelodic Sonic Hierographic Forms – A Resonance Change In The Millenium", "Ronald Shannon Jackson – The Master Of Symphonic Drumming & Multi-Sonic Rhythms Inscriptions Of A Rare Beauty", and "Ohnedaruth John Coltrane – The Master Of Kosmic Music & His Spirituality In A Love Supreme".

Autumn DefenseCircles (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Be With (UK), 2003. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
Easygoing timeless guitar pop from John Stirratt and Pat Sansone – the former always of Wilco, the latter to officially join soon after – but the Autumn Defense remains a vital, remarkably different force of its own! Essentially a quartet here with Brad Jones and Greg Wiz – with guests including Andrew Bird, Ryan Rapsys, Jeff Tweedy (on guitar for a track) and Steve Tyska.Includes "Silence", "Sun In California", "Written In The Snow", "The Answer", "Why I'm Like This", "Some Kind Of Fool", "Tuesday Morning", "Iowa City Adieu", "Circles" and more.

Carmelo Bernaola/Alfonso SantistebanEl Espanto Surge De La Tumba (Horror Rises From The Tomb)/El Asesino Esta Entre Los 13 (The Killer Is One Of Thirteen) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $19.99
Two spooky Spanish soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is music from Horror Rises From The Tomb – sounds that often feature a very weird, often watery organ line – of the sort you'd imagine some creepy guy playing in order to get ghouls to rise from their grave – with a sound that's almost suspended in air, and done with lots of cool, echoey elements around the edges! There's a nice sense of tension, but in a way that's really different than American horror from the generation before – maybe touched by some of the new sense of sound that Italians brought to the genre in their music – and the CD features 13 tracks from the film. Next up is Alfonso Santisteban's great music for The Killer Is One of 13 – sounds that, like some of his other horror work, might be more at home in an Italian romantic film – thanks to great use of woodwinds and gentle grooves! CD only features 4 tracks, but they're all pretty great – and titles include "La Fuga", "Supercelestial", "Con Una Suave Nostalgia", and "En Busca Del Tiempo Perdido". CD

Samuel Blaser/Gerry HemmingwayOostum ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
A really great setting for drummer Gerry Hemmingway – an album that has him improvising live with trombonist Samuel Blaser – a fantastic musician who's one of the freshest trombone talents we've heard in years! In previous comments, we've liked Blaser to a modern day heir to the genius of 60s trombonists like Roswell Rudd and Grachan Moncur – and those words definitely hold true here, as Blaser delivers a wondrous balance between new sounds and tuneful moments, fresh ideas and a longer tradition on his horn – all in ways that make Hemmingway sound even more creative than usual. The album features six duets, all recorded live in a church during a jazz festival in the Netherlands – with titles that include "Spoor", "Rogue", "Mettle", "Bloos", and "Balloon".

✨✧ Blue CheerVincebus Eruptum ... LP
Philips, 1968. Very Good ... $39.99
Archetypal heavy rock from Blue Cheer – one of THE underground classics of the late 60s! Guitars are firmly, very jammingly in force – and the set's produced to perfection by the legendary Abe "Voco" Kesh. Powerful, fuzzed out, blues based fire at it's most forceful and exhilarating – ultimately setting the bar too high for the group, or altered versions of it, to ever again approach! Titles include their great cover of "Summertime Blues", plus "Doctor Please", "Out Of Focus", "Parchment Farm", "Second Time Around", and "All Night Long". LP, Vinyl record album

Amartey HedzolehKukurantumi ... LP
Chop Time (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Excellent solo work from Amartey Hedzoleh – a key member of the important Afro Funk combos Psychedelic Aliens and Hedzoleh Sounds – heard here in a set of previously-unreleased tracks from the early 80s! The music is quite rootsy all the way through – with Hedzoleh on vocals and a host of different instruments that include guitar, kalimba, gonje, and jiri – spun out over percussion that's sewn together in tightly rhythmic grooves by some great bass and guitar – often moving at a speed that's pretty intense! The sound is very unique – earthy and almost ethnographic, but with all the rhythmic appeal of studio grooves from the time – and titles include "Pe Pe", "Abonsa Iye Woye", "Abena At Rest House", "Hie Hie Woyaa", "Serious", and "Tontro".

Sherman Irby & MomentumCerulean Canvas ... CD
Black Warrior, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Maybe the greatest album we've ever heard from saxophonist Sherman Irby – and that's saying a lot, because he's given us some really fantastic records over the years! Yet while those albums were always graced with Irby's wonderful tone and phrasing on alto sax, this set seems to showcase an even grander musical vision, and portray him as a leader with deep currents of soul and sophistication! Irby's been playing a lot with the Jazz At Lincoln Center orchestra – so that may be part of the shift here – but the music is all still very much his own, just maybe amped up even more than before – and delivered by a wonderful group that features Eric Reed on piano, Gerald Cannon on bass, and Willie Jones III on drums – along with guest work from Vincent Garnder and Elliot Mason on trombone, and performances by trumpeter Wynton Marsalis on two tracks. Reed is especially wonderful – pulling out these dark tones that really deepen the sound of the songs, especially when Irby's taking off on one of his amazing alto flights. Titles include "Racine", "Contemplation", "Smile Please", "Sybad", "Willie's Beat", "Blue Twirl", and "Blues For Poppa Reed". CD

Gap MangioneDiana In The Autumn Wind ... CD
Josh Music, 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
A totally great little album from Gap Mangione – the lesser-known brother of Chuck! The difference between Gap and Chuck was that Gap was always hipper, cooler, and a bit funkier – as you'll hear in this excellent debut LP from 1968! Gap's working here in some amazing territory – taking styles of jazz from 60s soundtracks, and working them into a slightly electrified context that makes for some really cool grooves. Tracks are short, but complicated – with rhythms by a young Tony Levin on bass and Steve Gadd on drums – and lots of piano, organ, and electric piano from Gap! There's a few moments on here that you'll recognize from famous hip hop samples – but even more than those, the album's wonderfully solid overall – a unique jazz vision from the late 60s, and the kind of set that should have had Gap beating out his flugelhorn-playing brother! Titles include "The XI Commandment", "Dream On Little Dreamer", "Long Hair Soulful", "Diana In The Autumn Wind", "Boys With Toys", "Pond With Swans", and "Graduate Medley". CD

Jorgen Mathisen/Christian Meaas Svendsen/Andreas WMomentum ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
Layers of sound from this mighty heavy trio – saxophonist Jorgen Mathisen, bassist Christian Meaas Svendsen, and drummer Andreas Wildhagen! Side one features the blistering "Momentum" – a tune that's awash in these sheets of notes and textures from Jorgen on tenor – with maybe a bit of a break in the middle for the bass, before Mathisen then takes on a more pointed, spiritual journey on his horn! Side two features three shorter tracks – "Gaining", "Maintaining", and "Snake Ballad" – which have even more abstract sonic expression from the group! LP, Vinyl record album

MtumeKiss This World Goodbye ... LP
Epic, 1978. Very Good ... $19.99
An early crossover set from Mtume – one that still holds onto some of the elements first forged in the spiritual jazz underground of the early 70s, yet one that also starts to showcase more of the tighter soul groove he'd burst into prominence in the early 80s! The blend is a great one, and makes the album one of Mtume's most compelling records – as even amidst some of the more grooving numbers, there's some great offbeat elements at work too – almost putting the record in the territory of work by Roy Ayers or Edwin Birdsong. The mighty Hubert Eaves contributes lots of great keyboards to the record, and famous partner Reggie Lucas plays guitar – while Mtume himself sings along with his percussion, and also gets some female vocal help from Tawatha. Titles include the sublime "The Closer I Get To You" – plus "Just Funnin", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "Love Lock", "Metal Flake Mind", and "This Is Your World". LP, Vinyl record album

Ronnie & Natalie/Stumpwater6 Times/Turn Me On Woman (with insert) ... 7-inch
Supreme Echo (Canada), 1972. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99
Raw early 70s rock from Winnipeg – caught in a crazy era between psychedelia and proto-punk, and delivering an oddly endearing sound with bits of both! "6 Times" is a ragged jam by Ronnie & Natalie, a brother & sister duo singing and screaming over glam-psych weirdness. "Turn Me On Woman" is a harder charging track by Stumpwater that has an almost Stooges-y sound, even if they're shooting for a straighter hard rock vibe. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500. Comes with nice insert, too.)
