Notes ... CD Soul Note (Italy), 1988. Used ...
The first album as a leader from trumpeter Frank Gordon – one of the lesser-remembered members of the AACM in the 70s, and an artist who's probably best known for his work in the soulful combo The Awakening! This set has Gordon blowing in some richly creative territory, especially for the ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Reunion ... CD Soul Note (Italy), 1991. Used ...
Later solo work from Andrew Hill – an Italian session with four long tracks, and a fair bit of sensitive tones throughout! The record definitely has some of Hill's tentative qualities of the period – playing that almost makes you feel like he's rediscovering the keyboard of the piano ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Nothing too exotic here, as the album's a soulful romp from Frank Lowe – a set that has a nicely earthy feel overall, with lots of room for Lowe's wonderful sound on the tenor sax! The group here features some especially nice piano from Amina Claudine Myers – who is always a welcome ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A record that definitely lives up to its title – as alums from the Mingus band work together here in a set of fresh changes on classics from the master - titles that include "Celia", "Ysabel's Table Dance", "Caroline", and "Sue's Changes". Group ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Some of the best work we've ever heard from Jemeel Moondoc – an early session as a leader, and one that's done with a sense of spiritual focus we don't always hear in his later recordings!

The work's similar to Roach's quartet sessions of the late 70s, although perhaps a ... (Jazz) read moreCD

An unusual record – one that has Max Roach handling a fair bit of percussion, and working with a hip string quartet too! (Jazz) CD
Historic Concerts indeed – as the meeting of Max and Cecil Taylor must have been quite an event! As he did on other late 70s sessions – particularly those with Archie Shepp and Anthony Braxton – Max proves that he's quite willing to experiment, and works beautifully in the spare, ...

An overlooked killer from Archie Shepp – a set that almost recalls some of the spiritual moments of his later Impulse work, and which definitely has him moving past some of the straighter sounds of this period in his career! Things are never too outside or free, but there's a balance with ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Mal plays solo piano on this set – a mixed bag of original compositions, and somber interpretations of older numbers. Titles include "Variations On A Theme By Cecil Taylor", "Night In Tunisia", "Inch Worm", "Free For CT", and "I Should Care". (Jazz) CD
