Alan BroadbentNew York Notes ... CD
Savant, 2019. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Rock-solid work from pianist Alan Broadbent – a musician who's contributed so much to so many, we sometimes forget the greatness of his talents! Broadbent steps in with the confidence of an old school pianist – swinging things with a mix of bop and lyricism that hearkens back to the old New York scene – beautifully matched by the thoughtful basswork of Harvie S, and given the right kick at the right moments by drummer Billy Mintz. Piano moods seem to spin effortlessly off Broadbent's fingers – whether the tune is swinging or mellow – and titles include "Clifford Notes", "Minority", "Continuity", "Crazeology", "Waltz Prelude", and "371 East 32nd Street".

✨✧ Lee Konitz with Alan BroadbentLive Lee – In Duo Performances Live At The Jazz Bakery Los Angeles ... CD
Milestone, 2000. Used ... $3.99
Very spare work from Lee Konitz – and the kind of live recording that almost takes us back to the icy brilliance we first heard in his alto sax in the 50s! The album features Lee's alto with only support from Alan Broadbent on piano – a stripped-down setting that really lets Konitz open up with these flowing lines that beautifully emphasize his tone – that sharp-edged approach to alto that we love so much, sounding almost as fresh here as it did back in the day. Broadbent's piano is nice too – usually quite spare – and titles include "Sequentialee", "Gundula", "If You Could See Me Now", "I'll Remember April", "Ex Temp", "Subconscious Lee", and "Keepin The News".

Woody HermanChildren Of Lima ... CD
Fantasy/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
An overlooked chapter of the 70s genius of Woody Herman – and the kind of album that shows him continuing to grow strongly, many years after his initial fame! The record takes off ambitiously from some of the funkier Herman sessions of the start of the 70s – and features the core group augmented by the Houston Symphony Orchestra on side one – offering up larger backings to color in the sophisticated sounds of the tunes "Variation On A Scene" and "Children Of Lima", both jazz suites penned by Alan Broadbent, who'd done great work with Herman's group. Side two is back to straighter big band numbers – tunes that burst out with a lot of life and energy, and which have a few of the soulful stylings of Herman's previous funk. Highlights include great covers of "25 Or 6 To 4" and "Where Is The Love", plus a version of Broadbent's driving "Far In". CD

Don MenzaFirst Flight ... LP
Catalyst, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Wicked work from saxophonist Don Menza – really stretching out here in a massively beautiful 70s session for Catalyst Records! Menza was a heck of a player, but one who mostly kept things pretty close to the chest – yet on this album, he blows with a soulful, flowing tone that's simply impeccable – gently gliding along electric rhythms with a really mellow feel! The album unfolds like the petals of some hip 70s flower – gently opening up from tune to tune, peeling back layer upon layer of soulful sound – as Menza blows on tenor, soprano, and flute – with a group that includes Alan Broadbent on piano and electric keys, Frank Rosolino on trombone, and Paulinho and Claudio Slon on percussion. All tracks are original, and titles include "Samba De Rollins", "Magnolia Rose", "Ballad Of The Matador", and "Groove Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Irene KralAngel Eyes – Live In Tokyo ... CD
All Art (Japan), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lovely lovely work from Irene Kral – a Japanese-only session from the 70s, and one of her best efforts from the time! Irene's vocals have never sounded better – strong and confident, but not in a cloying way that gets in the way of the tunes – working with a piano trio led by Alan Broadbent that's wonderfully adaptive to the mood of the tunes, especially from a rhythmic standpoint – as a number of the tracks turn out to be great groovers in the end! The album's a perfect example of the way that American singers were always able to find a hipper vibe when recording in Japan during the 70s (like Dee Dee Bridgewater or Lorez Alexandria, to name a few others recorded this way!) The set's got a great version of "On A Clear Day", a snapping jazz dance take on "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", plus the cuts "Star Eyes", "Misty Roses", "Angel Eyes", "Corcovado", and "Everytime We Say Goodbye".
