Dadisi KomolafeHassan's Walk ... CD
Nimbus, 1983. New Copy ... $9.99
A soul jazz treasure from the LA scene of the early 80s – a fantastic record that we'd rank with the best Strata East sides of the time! The group's led by alto saxophonist Dadisi Komolafe, and features vibes by Ricky Kelly, piano by Eric Tillman, bass by Roberto Miranda, and drums by Sunship Theus – all working together in a style that's infused with soulful, post-Coltrane exploratory energy, never going too far outside, and always staying true to the rhythmic pulse at its core. Kelly's vibes are really great – sparkling underneath solos by Komolafe that remind us a lot of Gary Bartz's earliest work – and titles include "Calvary", "Speak No Evil", and "Hassan's Walk". CD
(Comes in a slim sleeve.)
Also available Hassan's Walk (180 gram pressing) ... LP 34.99

VariousLA's Unsung – Nimbus West Compilation ... CD
Nimbus, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A very fitting title for a really wonderful compilation – one that features tracks from the catalog of the legendary Nimbus Records label, home to some of the most creative work in the Los Angeles scene at the end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s! Nimbus' main star talent was pianist Horace Tapscott – and the label recorded work by many in Tapscott's creative circle at the time, a rich blend of many different jazz talents, many of whom are still sadly "unsung" even years later. The energy here is similar to the Chicago AACM scene, the St Louis style of the early 70s, or some of the New York loft jazz recordings of the mid 70s – but the Nimbus scene is also characterized by a stronger modal sound, one that creates a lot more rhythmic pulsing in the music, giving many of the tunes on the set a pronounced groove that easily helps them span time and location. Titles in clude "UGMAAGER" by Nate Morgan, "Question" by Jesse Sharps, "Prayer Of Happiness" by Billie Harris, "Mrafu" by Nate Morgan, "Calvary" by Dadisi Komolafe, "Same Shame" by Ricky Kelley, and "Raphael" by Roberto Miranda.
