Ambassador Satch is a key statement of Armstrong's global power in the postwar years, a time when the State Department was using his talents to mend fences and open doors after WWII.

Eugene ChadbourneThere'll Be No Tears Tonight ... LP
Parachute, 1980. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the most compelling albums ever recorded by guitarist Eugene Chadbourne – a set billed as "free improvised country and western bebop" – and which features Chadbourne serving up these wild variations on tunes by Carl Perkins, Roger Miller, David Allen Coe, Bobby Bare, Merle Haggard, and other country music legends! The album's much more Eugene than Nashville – although Chadbourne does sing lyrics on all of the tunes, but in a way that's very offbeat and hardly unlike the originals at all – as is his guitar work, which is acoustic and all twisted and turned up in all the offbeat phrasings you might expect! Much of the record is Chadbourne on vocals and electric dobro – but the set also features some drums by David Licht, saxes from John Zorn, and cello from Tom Cora. Titles include "The Last Word In Lonesome Is Me", "I'm The Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised", "Georgia In A Jug", "Motel Time Again", "Dang Me", "Window Shopping", "Jealous Loving Heart", "Mr Record Man", and "Swingin Doors". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the benchmark albums in the leftfield underground hip hop canon – and a hugely influential set that burst the doors wide open for the more creative spirits in the hip hop and even experimental pop. Tracks include "3030", "Things You Can Do", "Positive Contact", "Virus", "Mastermind", "Time Keeps On Slipping", "Turbulence (remix)", "Battlesong", "Memory Loss" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Ken FowserRight On Time ... CD
Posi tone, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
This might be the first time we've ever heard tenorist Ken Fower with a Hammond organ in the mix – and it makes for a great change that really opens up the colors in his horn! Ken's always had a strong sense of tone, and we love his acoustic records – but this time around, Brian Charette handles the Hammond with a very groovy vibe – one that takes Ken back into 60s soul jazz territory, yet without any copycat cliche modes at all – kind of a sweet blend of Fowser's strong sense of writing and rhythm, just given a nice kick by the organ, which also handles the basslines too. The rest of the group is great as well – with Joe Magnarelli on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, Ed Cherry on guitar, and Willie Jones III on some nicely snapping drums. Titles include "No Filter", "On My Way", "Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors", "Samba For Joe Bim", "Knights Of The Round", "Fowser Time", and "Don't Let Life Pass You By". CD

Marvin Gaye & Tammi TerrellUnited ... CD
Tamla/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic soul duets between Marvin & Tammi Terrell – a landmark pair in 60s soul music, and easily one of the best male/female duos in pop music ever! Marvin and Tammi have a way of singing together that makes you feel like they're speaking the tunes, not singing them – a personal, intimate quality that's almost as if we're sneaking in on them behind closed doors – and not hearing their voices cast out in front of full backing in the Motown studios. Even when the tunes are familiar, they're still bracingly emotive – Includes stone classics like "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "If I Could Build My World Around You", plus "Hold Me Oh My Darling", "Somethin Stupid", "You Got What It Takes", and "If This World Were Mine". CD
(Part of the Motown Did It First Series!)

Veki (UK), 2019. New Copy ... About July 19, 2019
The Hackney Colliery Band really open the doors wide here – more than living up to the promise of the collaborations in the title – as the set features guest work from a range of artists that includes Bugge Wesseltoft, Mulatu Astatke, keyboardist James Taylor, Rob Auton, Angelique Kido, and many others! The core sound of the group still drives most of the tracks – strong rhythms from Olly Blackman and Luke Christie on drums – both very strong forces in the sound – topped with trumpet work from Steve Pretty and the other brass members of the group – but in ways that still allow the guests to dip their special talents into the mix. Christie, Pretty, and Blackman handled most of the arrangements – and titles include "Mm", "Why Yellow", "Netsanet", "Crushing Lactic", "Derashe", "Climbing Up My Own Life Until I Die", "What's Gone Before", and "Ricochet".

Isaac HayesLive At The Sahara Tahoe ... LP
Enterprise, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A stunning live example of Ike's amazing baroque soul for Stax! Despite the schmaltz that you might expect from a live set recorded at Lake Tahoe, the album's a beautiful batch of long tracks with a very similar feel to Ike's other Stax work at the time – and it really gives you an excellent chance to hear how he could create these tiny little masterpieces even in a live setting, without any sort of studio trickery. Titles include "Do Your Thing", "Theme From The Men", "Look Of Love", "Theme From Shaft", "Ike's Rap V", "Windows Of The World", "Ain't No Sunshine", and "Type Thang". 2 LPs – in a cool die-cut cover!

Herb Kent & David SmallwoodCool Gent – The Nine Lives Of Radio Legend Herb Kent (hardcover) ... Book
Lawrence Hill Books, 2010. New Copy ... $4.99 24.95
A Chicago legend finally gets his due – the legendary Herb Kent, who was known as the "Cool Gent" on radio – and also ended up working on TV, and also playing a big part in the city's steppers scene in the 90s! Herb was a real trailblazer – part of a Chicago generation of black broadcasters who really opened the doors with a new sense of class, cool, and professionalism – a generation of which Kent is probably the best-remembered. This book tells Herb's story in all its details – from his early pre-radio days, to his great fame on-air, to his impact and interaction with the music, to some difficult moments in later years. The man himself tells his story, with help from writer David Smallwood – and our late mayor, Richard M Daley, even did the foreword. Hardcover, 302 pages, with some black and white images. Book

MoonchildVoyager ... CD
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
If you like Fender Rhodes, you'll find plenty to love here – as Moonchild is just the duo of singer Amber Navran and keyboardist Andris Mattson – whose warm lines here are a perfect accompaniment to the vocals! There's a warm, organic vibe here that's maybe a bit different than some of the other work from the Tru Thoughts label in recent years – much more indie soul, although Navran's vocals are maybe a bit more understated, and sometimes let the keyboards take the lead! There's occasional other instrumentation on the record – acoustic piano, alto sax, and more – but the real charm comes from the interplay between voice and keyboards – on titles that include "Now & Then", "Change Your Mind", "Hideaway", "Cure", "6AM", "The List", "Doors Closing", and "Think Back".

Mike NockOndas ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1982. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Mike Nock has always been a pianist with so many varied shades and styles to his talents – and here, he makes a rare ECM appearance in a set that's nicely different from most of his other albums of the 70s – maybe a bit more sensitive at times, but also maybe more freewheeling too – with these beautiful long tracks that have Nock really reveling in the tone of his instrument, but also working things with an inherent sense of rhythm too! The approach makes for these compelling spun-out tunes that pulsate beautifully – given subtle but strong support from Eddie Gomez on bass and Jon Christensen on drums. Titles include "Forgotten Love", "Ondas", "Visionary", "Doors", and "Land Of The Long White Cloud". CD

Gamble & Huff are at the helm, and arrangements at Sigma Sound are by Lenny Pakula, Norman Harris, and Bobby Martin – but throughout the whole thing, it's Billy's delivery that really sends the record over the top – the new sense of maturity he brings to the huge hit "Me & Mrs Jones", the funky vibe of "Am I Black Enough For You", and the wealth of great work on tracks that include "I'm Gonna Make It This Time", "I'm Just A Prisoner", "Brown Baby", and "Let's Stay Together".

PortisheadThird ... CD
Mercury, 2008. Used ... $3.99
A decade since their previous effort, and 14 years since their previous masterpiece, Portishead returns with Third – and, oh, what a mindblowing third act. The first thing you'll realize about Third is that it's not Dummy Part 3 – a welcome and surprising trait – but it does take their earlier way with a spooky, brooding and ominous framework to new dimensions. Secondly, there's no obvious single – it's to be taken as a whole. Beth Gibbons's vocals are as soul wrenching as ever, and an overall stark, melancholic beauty connects Portishead '08 to the old stuff, but they go deeper. Some bits are quite minimalist, wringing emotion from a low strum, a distant chime, or a haunting bit of dissonance – other parts are more richly layered and even a bit jarring. Pulp cinematic aura, feedback textured psychedelia, haunting European pop, and traces of field recorded folk flavor the sound – they've dabbled in all of these elements before – but never with this particular feel. The sound of epiphany. How many acts in the pop realm create a whole new style with a classic album, and then pull off something nearly as great almost 15 years later, without ripping themselves off? Add Portishead to that small list. We'll call '08 early, this is the best pop album of the year. Titles include "Silence", "Hunter", "Nylon Smile", "The Rip", "We Carry On", "Deep Water", "Machine Gun", "Small", "Magic Doors", "Threads". CD

Weird Cry, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99 10.00
Really haunting duets from these two California reedman – both playing woodwinds in a variety of formats, but with an especially strong emphasis on saxophones! The tunes have this open, airy quality that's different than most free improvisations – more meditative and spiritual, with an inherent sense of structure – and often these flowing waves of energy that emanate nicely between both musicians. There's a vibe that's almost a bit like some of the more introspective music of the great Bob Downes – but with more of an American sense of soul, as well – and titles include "Wind In The Trees", "Nail In The Wall", "Picture Paintings", "Begin To Look Around", and "Long & Wide Doors".

Joe TexSoul Country ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good ... $6.99
An incredible record that really helped define a unique genre in soul – the "soul country" movement of the 60s! Joe's working here in a style that was founded by artists that included Solomon Burke, Ray Charles, Ivory Joe Hunter, and others – blending together the two great genres of the postwar south, into a unique sound that had all the best aspects of both! The set's never hokey – and instead features Joe being honest, open, and expressive on a variety of adult themes – sung in a style that was clearly opening doors around the south – and recorded in Memphis with some great Chips Moman studio work! The album includes great versions of "Dark End Of The Street", "Funny How Time Slips Away", and "Ode To Billie Joe", plus Joe's own "I'll Never Do You Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve TibbettsNorthern Song ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1982. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Steve Tibbetts is always a player who can effortlessly make soundscapes flow from his guitar – and here, he works with just the right of slight augmentation to his core acoustic work – using some added kalimba and tape loops – just a bit – and partnering up with the gentle percussionist Marc Anderson – who adds in a bit of congas and bongos to the set! Yet the record sounds light years away from any sort of guitar/percussion duo you might imagine – as things are very spacious, and very much in the territory of Tibbetts other sides for ECM – maybe inspired as much by some of the more freewheeling sonic experiments of the 70s post-prog, post-punk German and larger European world – than by the jazz that you'd expect on ECM. Titles include "The Big Wind", "Form", "Walking", "Aerial View", and "Nine Doors/Breathing Space". CD

VariousHolding Things Together – The Merle Haggard Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Merle Haggard isn't just one of the greatest country singers of all time – he's also a hell of a songwriter, too – one who emerged fully-formed into the glory of his Capitol Records years – releasing album after album that were full of amazing original compositions! Merle's own recordings of his songs have gone on to shape the sound of country music for decades – but right from the start, his music was grabbed up and interpreted by singers in a variety of different modes – sometimes as a way to make older artists sound hip, and more importantly as a way for younger acts to give ol' Hag the nod, and fortify their rootsy inclinations with a strong dose of straight country! This set does a great job of mixing up both sides of that coin, and throws in a few surprises along the way – finally giving Merle his due when it comes to the pen, on tracks that include "The Bottle Let Me Down" by Emmylou Harris, "I Must Be Somebody Else You've Known" by International Submarine Band, "Sing Me Back Home" by The Every Brothers, "Life In Prison" by The Byrds, "Kern River" by Dave Alvin, "Legend Of Bonnie & Clyde" by Tammy Wynette, "White Line Fever" by Flying Burrito Brothers, "Okie From Muskogee" by Roy Rogers, "Swinging Doors" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Today I Started Loving You Again" by Wynn Stewart, "Rainbow Stew" by Country Joe McDonald, "Honky Tonk Night Time Man" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Just Because You Can't Be Mine" by Bettye Swann, and "Silver Wings" by The Knitters.

VariousNouvelle Ambiance – Sounds From The Pan-African Paris Underground ... LP
Nouvelle Ambiance (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99
Paris holds a very special place in the world of global music – once the center of a colonial empire that spread south across the continent of Africa – and later, home to a rich legacy of excellent recordings from the post-colonial years! More than most former powers, France seemed to really open its doors to cultural influences from previous years – and this set showcases just one of those many influences – the huge rise of new African sounds in the city's dancefloors and recording studios! The package is great – with a huge booklet of notes and photos that really focus in on this sonic legacy – and the double-length collection features wonderful tracks that include "Bazombo" by Bovick & Co, "Ngando" by Jacques Loubelo, "Mama Africa" by Siassia & Tokobina, "M'Acko" by Antoinette Konan, "A Muto" by Esa, "Livre D'Or" by Empire Bakuba & Papy Tex, "Djande" by John Jongos, "Dawasi (inst)" by Baba Bhy-Gao Dombia, "Zangalon" by Jean Paul Mondo, and "Tcha Tcha Merengue" by Ali Baba.

VariousYou Need This – An Introduction To Black Saint & Soul Note Records 1975 to 1985 (3LP set) ... LP
Black Saint/BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $24.99 28.99
A tremendous look at one of the coolest jazz labels of all time – and one that has an especially strong focus on the more spiritual side of its music! The paired Black Saint and Soul Note labels came along from the Italian scene right at a time when so many other American companies were shutting their doors – former spiritual jazz powerhouses like Strata East, Impulse, and Black Jazz were moving beyond the music, or disappearing entirely – which made the role of Black Saint/Soul Note such a crucial one! The company came into the game at a time of boundless creativity in American jazz – and really captured a post-Coltrane generation that was brimming over with fire and new ideas, but just needed a place to find expression – which it did at the label, who recorded dozens of albums in the space of less than a decade, nearly all of which have gone onto become classics over the years. And while there's a side of the label that's much more free jazz and avant garde, the cuts here reflect a Black Saint/Soul Note that's just slightly inside – tunes that are still freewheeling, but also have a rhythmic core – and the kinds of open, soaring solos that were first inspired in the 60s generation of Coltrane and Shepp. The choice of cuts is great – similar to the others in the If Music series – and titles include "Mr Seven" by M'Booom, "Joycie Girl" by Don Pullen with Sam Rivers, "Il Giro Del Giorno In 80 Mondi" by Enrico Rava, "Oasis" by Hamiet Bluiett, "Confessin" by John Stubblefield, "Joobubie" by George Adams & Dannie Richmond, "Verde Que Eu Te Quero Ver" by Rava String Band, "Down Home In New York" by Archie Shepp, "BK" by Air, and "The Nagual Julian" by Billy Bang Sextet.

✨✧ Art Blakey & The Afro-Drum EnsembleAfrican Beat ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A completely righteous mix of jazz and African percussion – put together by drummer Art Blakey at a time when he was riding high with the Jazz Messengers, but also was willing to work on great experiments like this! The album's years ahead of its time – and arguably opens the door for countless spiritual jazz projects like this in the 70s, more proof that Blakey was a groundbreaking artist who was always opening doors for others! Blakey's own work on drums is joined by percussion from Montego Joe, Chief Bey, Garvin Masseux, James Ola, Folami, Robert Crowder, and Solomon Ilori – the last of whom would record his own record for Blue Note – and the rest of the group features Yusef Lateef on flute and tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and the great Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass – a great choice for the record, given that he was mixing together similar modes on his own records of the time. Titles include "Tobi Ilu", "Love, The Mystery Of", and "Obirin African". CD

✨✧ Lesley DuncanLeslie Step Lightly – The GM Recordings Plus – 1974 to 1982 (Everything Changes/Moon Bathing/Maybe It's Lost/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
GM/RPM (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second and final chapter of work from England's Lesley Duncan – a really great singer/songwriter who opened the doors for many others, but often never fully got her due! The tracks here are after Lesley's bigger years on RCA, and especially CBS – three albums recorded for the GM Recordings label in the mid 70s, plus lots of later bonus tracks too – all showing Duncan still very much at the height of her powers, as a strong interpreter of her own lyrics in ways that are free of commercial modes, nor any of the easily, conventional styles that other female singers were using as the 70s moved on. Arrangements are nicely understated, and two of the three albums feature Chris Spedding on guitar – Peter Frampton is on the third – all strongly presented here with huge notes and photos, and 20 bonus tracks too, including live tracks from a 1974 concert. Titles include "My Soul", "Moon Bathing", "Rocking Chair", "Fine Friends", "Jumped Right In The River", "We'll Get By", "Watch The Tears", "Maybe It's Lost", "The Sky's On Fire", "Love Melts Away", "Walking In The Sea", "Falling Like A Leaf", "Sing Children Sing", "Rainbow Games", "Could've Been A Winner", "Another Light Goes Out", and "Masters Of War".

✨✧ Marvin Gaye & Tammi TerrellUnited ... LP
Tamla, 1967. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic soul duets between Marvin & Tammi Terrell – a landmark pair in 60s soul music, and easily one of the best male/female duos in pop music ever! Marvin and Tammi have a way of singing together that makes you feel like they're speaking the tunes, not singing them – a personal, intimate quality that's almost as if we're sneaking in on them behind closed doors – and not hearing their voices cast out in front of full backing in the Motown studios. Even when the tunes are familiar, they're still bracingly emotive – Includes stone classics like "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "If I Could Build My World Around You", plus "Hold Me Oh My Darling", "Somethin Stupid", "You Got What It Takes", and "If This World Were Mine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Two globes pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ MillenniumPieces ... CD
Sonic Past/Voiceprint (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice, nice, nice collection of grooves from the Millennium vaults! As y'all already must know, the group's monumental Begin was the only official album by the Millenium AS the Millennium (Boettcher, Mallory, Salisbury and co. recorded other projects together and individually) leaving a wealth of great material in unreleased, rights-controlled limbo. Decades later some of this bristling, sunshine 60s pop euphoria is FINALLY seeing the light of day. The appropriately titled Pieces is a must for fans of the group and others that came before and after such as the Mamas & Papas, the post-Pet Sounds Wilsons, the Association and others. These comparably rough Millenium nuggets sort of feel like Smiley Smile to Begin's Pet Sounds; they may not be the definitive portrait of the group's greatness, but still an essential piece of the puzzle. These tracks that have languished behind closed doors for decades are better than most sunshine pop records that WERE released. It's the kind of thing that makes us wonder how many legacies in similarly restricted circumstances will be lost forever. Includes "Prelude", "To Claudia On Thursday", "It's You", "Good People", "Once Upon A Time", "A Younger Me", "Sunshine Girl", and lots more. 21 in all! CD

✨✧ Steve TibbettsNorthern Song ... CD
ECM, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Steve Tibbetts is always a player who can effortlessly make soundscapes flow from his guitar – and here, he works with just the right of slight augmentation to his core acoustic work – using some added kalimba and tape loops – just a bit – and partnering up with the gentle percussionist Marc Anderson – who adds in a bit of congas and bongos to the set! Yet the record sounds light years away from any sort of guitar/percussion duo you might imagine – as things are very spacious, and very much in the territory of Tibbetts other sides for ECM – maybe inspired as much by some of the more freewheeling sonic experiments of the 70s post-prog, post-punk German and larger European world – than by the jazz that you'd expect on ECM. Titles include "The Big Wind", "Form", "Walking", "Aerial View", and "Nine Doors/Breathing Space". CD

✨✧ Ken FowserRight On Time ... CD
Posi tone, 2019. Used ... Out Of Stock
This might be the first time we've ever heard tenorist Ken Fower with a Hammond organ in the mix – and it makes for a great change that really opens up the colors in his horn! Ken's always had a strong sense of tone, and we love his acoustic records – but this time around, Brian Charette handles the Hammond with a very groovy vibe – one that takes Ken back into 60s soul jazz territory, yet without any copycat cliche modes at all – kind of a sweet blend of Fowser's strong sense of writing and rhythm, just given a nice kick by the organ, which also handles the basslines too. The rest of the group is great as well – with Joe Magnarelli on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, Ed Cherry on guitar, and Willie Jones III on some nicely snapping drums. Titles include "No Filter", "On My Way", "Stand Clear Of The Closing Doors", "Samba For Joe Bim", "Knights Of The Round", "Fowser Time", and "Don't Let Life Pass You By". CD

✨✧ Lloyd MillerLifetime In Oriental Jazz (limited edition) ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
They definitely got the title right on this one – as jazz musician Lloyd Miller spent his lifetime recording in more unusual, exotic variations of his genre – often at a level that's kept him in relatively obscure territory over the decades! Yet its that obscurity that also really illustrates Lloyd's strong commitment to making music that pushes boundaries and opens doors – with a career that includes a fair bit of young years on the Mid-East and European scenes, where Miller was able to pick up countless influences from other cultures, and weave them into his own music as well. Miller spent most of his time in America in relative obscurity, but issued a string of recordings on his own label over the decades – the best of which are pulled together here in a fantastic overview of his music! There's plenty of modal and spiritual jazz elements in the mix – and a great blend of eastern and western instrumentation as well – on tracks that include many under Miller's name, plus more with the Press Keys Quartet and Jef Gilson Septet. LP features 9 tracks in all – including "Gole-E Gandom (Wheat Flowers)", "Gozel Guzler (Amber Eyes)", "Bizz-Aire", "Indo-European Improvisations", "Hue Wail", "Chant Inca", and "Le Grand Bidou".

✨✧ Joe ThomasGet In The Wind ... CD
LRC/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Reedman Joe Thomas is wrapped up here in some very warm grooves – a mix of electric jazz and clubby modes – all of which takes Thomas' usual sound right to the discos! Most cuts have a backup vocal group – with contributions from Gwen Guthrie and Jocelyn Brown – but these vocals soon step aside to make room for Joe's solos on both tenor and flute – every bit as soulful as before, maybe a bit like Stanley Turrentine or John Handy in such a setting! The album's also got some great keyboards from Pat Rebillot – and titles include "Plato's Retreat", "Mr Mumbles", "Get In The Wind", "Two Doors Down", and "Low Down". CD

FeltPictorial Jackson Review ... LP
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), 1988. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
Pure genius from a group who kept on growing strongly over the relatively short span of their career – maybe under-sung heroes at the time of their release, at least on this side of the Atlantic – but one of the few truly classic groups we can think of from the decade, at least with a recorded legacy this strong! The songs are as creatively distinct as anything every put forth by Morrissey and The Smiths – but in a very unique sort of way, with the guidance of mainman Lawrence firmly guiding the sound with his vocals amidst the wonderful songswirl of Hammond organ and guitar. Titles include "Apple Boutique", "Ivory Past", "Until The Fools Get Wise", "Bitter End", "How Spook Got Her Man", "Christopher Street", "Under A Pale Light", and "Don't Die On My Doorstep".

✨✧ Brandon LopezQuoniam Facta Sum Vilis ... CD
Astral Spirits/Monofonus, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mesmerizing work from bassist Brandon Lopez – a solo set, but one that's far different than the usual avant jazz outing of its type! At some level, the work here is an answer to the "sense" of Bach's famous cello suites – in which Lopez creates a space that's completely his own, and very much without referent – showing the ever-increasing complexity of musical language, especially in such a personal performance as this! At another level, the set's just mindblowing work on acoustic bass – handled here by an artist who approaches his solo medium in ways that are so different than any precursors – on a list that might include Barry Guy, Barre Phillips, and Peter Kowald. The album's a fantastic statement by a player we'll be watching closely in years to come – and selections include "Vanitas", "Lamed", "Gruppo", "For Sal", "Bea", and "And The Deep Indoors".
