An unlikely pairing, but a great one too – quite an unusual chapter in the career of pianist Ran Blake – but in a way, a great set to unlock the soulful undercurrents that have always been in his music! About half the tracks feature the tenor of Houston Person joining in – ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A real standout session from reedman Hamiet Bluiett – a record that's heavy on Afro-centric influences, with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and a rare jazz combo appearance for the time by trumpeter Hugh Masekela! There's kind of an earthy loft jazz sort of feel to the date – ... (Jazz) read moreCD

A great ode to Dannie Richmond's longtime musical partner Charles Mingus – who'd passed shortly before this session – done with styles and sounds that are quite different than some of Richmond's other work!

The work's similar to Roach's quartet sessions of the late 70s, although perhaps a ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Soulful Max Roach at the end of the 70s – working in the quartet format that he used to forge some of his best work of the decade, with stalwart Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, Odeon Pope on saxes (filling in nicely for Billy Harper!), and Calvin Hill on bass – an extremely soulful lineup ...

Bold work from Max Roach – great material from the piano-less quartet that features Odean Pope on tenor and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet!

Lacy and Waldron always played together beautifully, and this haunting collection of duets is a perfect example of the sensitivity these two longtime associates brought to their sessions together. All of the tracks are Ellington or Strayhorn compositions, and titles include "Azure", ... (Jazz) read moreCD
