Dave BurrellHigh Won – High Two (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99 About June 23, 2021
A pretty great and very strange album by avant pianist Dave Burrell! Side one features an extended tune called "West Side Story", which is basically a medley of tunes from the musical, played with a nice dark edge by Burrell and a trio, plus additional tambourine work by Pharoah Sanders! Side three features "East Side Colors", a great track in the ESP avant mode – and one that features killer drum work by Sonny Murray, and some fierce piano by Burrell. The set closes with the jaunty "Margy Pargy", a short straight tune with almost an old-timey feel to it. Weird, but one of Burrell's more compelling albums. Other tracks include "Theme Stream", "Bittersweet Reminiscence", and "Dave Blue". CD

Dave Burrell & Motoharu YoshizawaDreams ... CD
Trio (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 7, 2021
If you've ever doubted the genius of pianist Dave Burrell, this may well be the record to push you over the top – as the album captures Burrell at the height of his power, at a time when he was very much in a long-form, incredibly dynamic mode of improvisation – equal maybe to the greatness of Cecil Taylor during the same time! Yet Burrell can also balance his moods and modes, too – so that one of the album's long numbers, he's completely on fire – whereas on the other he's got a much more spacious sense of improvisation – really waiting and sounding things out, with superb accompaniment from bassist Motoharu Yoshizawa on both selections. Yoshizawa has this incredible boldness on the fast, free tune "Red/Black" – then comes at his instrument in a completely different way on the moodier, more contemplative "Green/Day Dream". CD

Stanley Cowell & Dave BurrellQuestions/Answers ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 7, 2021
Amazing duo improvisations from two of the hippest pianists of the early 70s – Stanley Cowell and Dave Burrell, coming together here on a rare Japanese-only album – one that features two long tracks that each take up a side of the disc! The vibe is maybe a bit more avant at times than some of Stanley's work on Strata East, but there's also a great balance between the voices of the two players too – and the sense of spontaneous creation is wonderful throughout, and always balances individual expressions with deeper ideas – ringing out in the loud, lively space of Ino Hall in Tokyo. The record contains two long tracks – "Questions" and "Answers" – both long improvisations by the pair. CD

✨✧ Marion Brown & Dave BurrellLive At Black Musician's Conference 1981 ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic testament to the slow-burning spiritual genius of Marion Brown – a player who sometimes got eclipsed in an era of bigger avant personalities, but who really gets to showcase his talents in a spare setting like this! The live performance pairs Brown's alto with the piano of Dave Burrell – another player who's sometimes understated, but in the best way possible – and together the pair sound completely sublime – gently exploring the farther reaches of tonal space with their improvisations, and almost always keeping things in relatively soulful formation! The set features beautiful readings of two Billy Strayhorn tunes – "My Little Brown Book" and "Lush Life" – balanced with original material that includes "Gossip/Fortunado", "La Placita", "Crucificado", "Puna Mae Ole", and "Punaluu Peter".

✨✧ Dave BurrellOnly Me ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most beautiful work ever recorded by pianist Dave Burrell – a solo session issued only in Japan, featuring Burrell on a Steinway recorded in the wide open space of a performance hall in Tokyo! There's a photo on the back cover that has a pair of suitcases behind Burrell at the piano – and we like to think that he showed up in the space, dropped the bags, and ran over to the piano to let loose with the kind of inspired imagination he really brings to the set – as the long tracks have this boundless sense of creativity that marks the record as one of the strongest statements of Burrell's genius on record! Some moments are rhythmic, others are freer yet still have a sense of cohesion – and there's a balance here between structure and space that's really wonderful. All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Margy Pargy", "8th Ave Rendez Vouz Blues", and "Lush Life". CD

Bill Evans, Karin Krog, Archie Shepp, Bobby HutcheLive At The Festival ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A very interesting batch of tracks – one tune apiece by each of the artists named in the title, recorded between the years 1970 and 1973 at the Festival Ljublijana, in Yugoslavia. Bill Evans performs a long, and straight reading of Miles Davis' "Nardis" with a trio that includes Eddie Gomez on bass and Tony Oxley on drums; Karin Krog sings a spare version of "Round Midnight", with only the bass of Arild Andersen for accompaniment; and Archie Shepp blows freely on a version of Grachan Moncur III's "Sonny's Back", in a group with Dave Burrell, Don Garrett, and Muhammad Ali. Perhaps the most striking track, though, is "The Creators" by Bobby Hutcherson – played with his group that included Harold Land and Hal Galper, and performed in an 18 minute reading that builds beautifully, into the dancing soul jazz sound that was Hutcherson's best contribution to jazz at the time!

Giuseppi LoganGiuseppi Logan Quintet ... CD
Tompkins Square, 2010. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic return to form for Giuseppi Logan – a contemporary record, but one that grabs us with just as much force as his famous 60s album for ESP! The sound here is equally raw, although slightly more soulful too – kind of a nice aspect of age folded into Logan's solos, which colors them with a good degree of humanity, especially on some of the more laidback numbers. Logan plays saxes and a bit of piano – although Dave Burrell handles most of the piano on the record, in a group that also features Matt Lavelle on trumpet and bass clarinet, Francois Grillot on bass, and Warren Smith on drums. Titles include "Modes", "Around", "Steppin", "Bop Dues", "Love Me Tonight", "Blue Moon", and "Freddie Freeloader". CD

Sunny MurrayPerles Noires Vol 1 ... CD
Eremite, 2005. Used ... $11.99
Magical work on drums from Sunny Murray – a later recording done with reedman Sabir Mateen – plus a few surprise guests on some of the tracks in the set! Murray's drums have all the power and presence we remember from years back – dimmed slightly with age, but given a lot more feeling too – matched nicely by Mateen's free lines on alto, tenor sax, and alto clarinet. Dave Burrell joins the pair on piano for four long, free numbers – and two more titles features Alan Silva on bass and Louis Belogenis on tenor. One remaining cut features just Murray and Mateen – and titles include "Fox Hunting In Manhattan (in 3 parts)", "Three Is A Crowd", "Top Dogs Boogie", "Trail Of Tears", and "Lonely Woman". CD

William ParkerI Plan To Stay A Believer – The Inside Songs Of Curtis Mayfield (with bonus download) ... LP
Aum Fidelity, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99 32.98
A really unusual album from bassist William Parker – an artist whose musical world is usually quite far from the 70s soul of Curtis Mayfield – even though both Mayfield and Parker are pretty darn righteous individuals! Yet here, Curtis and William come together in a stunning way – as Parker reworks classic Mayfield songs, and transforms them into fantastic vehicles for spiritual jazz expression! The group has a warmly collaborative vibe, and energy that feels like some lost indie jazz project from the 70s – all held together by Parker's bold acoustic bass and masterful leadership – in a lineup that includes vocals from Leena Conquest, piano from Dave Burrell, saxes and flute from Sabir Mateen, tenor and soprano from Darryl Foster, trumpet from Lewis Barnes, drums from Hamid Drake, and poetry and voice from Amari Baraka. With a lineup like that, you can already guess the vibe – and we can promise that the whole is even better than you might have hoped! Titles include "I Plan To Stay A Believer", "This Is My Country", "People Get Ready/The Inside Song", "Ya He Hey Ya", "New World Order", and a great 17 minute take on "We The People Who Are Darker Than Blue".

✨✧ Archie SheppBlase/Yasmina Revisited ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Important late 60s work from Archie Shepp – all recorded in Paris in 1969! First up is the album Blase – a crucial album from Archie Shepp – one that finds him enjoying new freedoms on the French scene at the end of the 60s – which then helps him take off from his earlier Impulse Records modes, at a level he'd then bring back to the label in the early 70s! There's a very free-thinking sense of combination here – as Shepp is breaking down from his idea of a more unified sound in the material – and opens the door at points to work from Jeanne Lee on voice and Chicago Beau and Julio Finn on harmonicas – in a lineup that also includes Malachi Favors on bass, Dave Burrell on piano, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. These are long, spiritual tracks that comprise some of his best European recordings of the time, and the titles include "There is a Balm in Gilead", "Touareg", "Blase", and "My Angel" – plus a strong reading of "Sophisticated Lady" – which maybe points the way towards some of the Shepp experiments in the late 70s. Next is the long title track from the album Yasmina, a Black Woman – a set that features Archie Shepp at his spiritual best – recording in Paris in 1969, and absorbing a heck of a lot pan-African influences! Shepp's in the lead on tenor – working with a great lineup of up-and coming avant geniuses – Clifford Thortnton on cornet, Lester Bowie on trumpet, Roscoe Mitchell on bass saxophone, Dave Burrell on piano, Malachi Favors on bass, Philly Joe Jones and Sunny Murray on drums – and the unusual addition of Art Taylor on "rhythm logs" and Laurence Devereaux on balafon! The centerpiece of the album is the amazing "Yasmina" – a long track that builds with passion and fire, pulsing with an intensity that you'd expect more from Pharoah Sanders than Shepp himself. CD

Patty WatersCollege Tour ... CD
ESP/ZYX, 1966. Used ... $9.99
One of a rare few albums ever from singer Patty Waters – an extremely experimental vocalist who was part of the mid 60s ESP Records scene! Patty was one of the first to ever go way past conventional singing – and work more in a vocalizing style that had just begun in avant classical – often more concerned with sounds and shapes than melody and music! Sometimes, though, she hits a surprisingly soulful note – almost a touch of Nina Simone's righteousness, before moving into more experimental territory once again. Waters is almost the Cathy Berberian of the jazz vocal world – and works here with a hip ESP lineup that features either Dave Burrell, Burton Greene, or Ran Blake on piano – depending on the track – plus Giuseppi Logan on flute, Perry Lind on bass, and Scobe Stroman on drums. The set was recorded live, but with great fidelity that really respects the subtle moments of Waters' vocals – and titles include "Wild Is The Wind", "Song Of Clifford", "Song Of The One I Love" and "Song Of Life With Hush Little Baby".

VariousJazz Loft Sessions ... CD
Douglas/Knit Classics, 1976. Used ... $6.99
Classic avant work from the New York scene of the 70s – selections pulled from the legendary Wildflowers loft jazz recordings by Alan Douglas – material that's as genre-defining to this scene as the ESP recordings were to the NYC avant world of the 60s! The package does a great job of winnowing out some of the best moments from the full Wildflowers series of albums – although most tracks here are still quite long, and really preserve the loose energy of improvisation that made the series famous. Titles include "Tranquil Beauty" by Hamiet Bluiett, "Jays" by Kalaparusha Maurice McIntyre, "Over The Rainbow" by Byard Lancaster, "Black Robert" by Dave Burrell, "Clarity" by Michael Jackson, "Naomi" by Ken McIntyre, "73 S Kelvin" by Anthony Braxton, "Portrait Of Frank Edward Weston" by Randy Weston, and "Shout Song" by David Murray.

✨✧ Marion BrownCapricorn Moon To Juba Lee (Marion Brown Quartet/Juba-Lee) ... CD
Ezz-Thetics/Hat Hut (Switzerland), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A CD that brings together some important early work from altoist Marion Brown – two long tracks from the sessions for his Quartet album on ESP – and a later album issued only overseas! The set begins with the long tracks "Capricorn Moon" and "Mephistopheles" from Marion Brown Quartet – one of our favorite albums ever on the legendary ESP label – a rhythmic, soulful, early session by Marion Brown – recorded before his own albums on Impulse, but with a similar feel to the best new thing sessions of that label at the time! The group is superb – with Benny Maupin on sax, Alan Shorter on trumpet, Rashied Ali on drums, and Ronnie Boykins on bass, often playing in tandem with Reggie Johnson – for a unique double-pulsing feel that makes for a nice rhythmic thrust. Next are the tracks "Juba Lee" and "Iditus", from the album Juba Lee – brilliant work from Marion Brown – one of his first albums, and a great set of tracks that have a fragile New York avant style – almost ESP, but not as raw, and with the kind of soulful emotion that's always made Brown's work stand out from the rest of his crowd. The group on the album is a septet, with Beaver Harris on drums, Dave Burrell on piano, Bennie Maupin on tenor, Alan Shorter on trumpet, and Grachan Moncour III on trombone. CD

✨✧ David MurrayLucky Four ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gentler set than some of David Murray's other US dates from the time – but in a really great way that nicely gets at the more sensitive side of his work on tenor and bass clarinet! There's a bit of a hardbop groove to the album, but also a bit more freedom too – a style that never goes that far out, but which reminds us through subtle cues that most of these players have a longer legacy in more avant-oriented work. The group features Dave Burrell on piano, Wilbur Morris on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – and Burrell especially echoes a range of influences here – almost pulling from older eras of jazz in the way that Jaki Byard used to – an approach that's often echoed by Murray in his horn. Titles include "Valley Talk", "Chazz", "As I Woke", "Abel's Blissed Out Blues", "Sharing", and "As I Woke". CD
