✨✧ George BraithMusart ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has light wear and a small bit of marker.)

Houston PersonSoul Dance! ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good ... $6.99
A great little session from tenorist Houston Person – and one that's almost worth it alone for the organ on the set! This time around, the Hammond chair is filled by Billy Gardner – the organist who'd played with both Lou Donaldson and George Braith on previous dates – and who turns in some equally wonderful work here too! Billy's got a sound that's wide-open, and often rhythmically pulsing in ways that remind us a bit of Larry Young before he got too far out – a groove that's usually got a slightly modal undercurrent, in ways that change things up nicely for Person. Houston's tenor is still great too – nicely biting, with that best raw early sound – and the rest of the group features a young Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones on guitar, plus Frankie Jones on drums. Titles include "Soul Dance", "Snake Eyes", "Blue Seven", "Groovin and A-Groovin", and "Teardrops From My Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eric KlossGrits & Gravy ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Totally great work from a young Eric Kloss – grits, gravy, and a whole lot more! About half the record has Kloss blowing with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums – going for a style that's more towards the soulful end of Byard's modern approach – and featuring some incredibly well-crafted alto solos for his young age. The other half of the album features a strange but cool larger group – one with Teddy Charles on vibes, Billy Butler on guitar, and even some female backing vocals! The approach on these sides is like that on some of the George Braith and Freddie McCoy sides for Prestige – a great blend of groovy and funky, with a soulful undercurrent that's really sent home by Kloss' solos! A stunning album with a really unique blend of sounds – and titles that include "Repeat", "Grits & Gravy", "Gentle One", "Slow Hot Wind", and "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing – in great shape!)

✨✧ George RussellJazz Workshop – Reissued By Request ... LP
RCA, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art Farmer on trumpet, Hal McKusick on alto, Bill Evans on piano, and Barry Galbraith on guitar – all players with just the right sort of color in their tone, able to illustrate George's ideas but still bring a bit of personality to the mix as well. Titles are mostly originals, written with slight touches of whimsy, but less of the indulgence on that front as you'd hear on west coast material – and tracks include "Witch Hunt", "The Sad Sargeant", "Ballad Of Hix Blewitt", "Knights of The Steamtable", "Jack's Blues", and "Night Sound". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing with some wear & aging.)
