Muriel GrossmannEarth Tones ... CD
Dreamland (Austria), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
Earth tones from saxophonist Muriel Grossmann – plenty of which have this wonderfully organic quality, as she really spins things out nicely on soprano throughout this fantastic debut! Grossmann's got this energy that really pushes forward from 70s spiritual modes – almost more in tune with the planet at times than just driven by her own spirit – as she stretches out on very long tracks that are balanced with very evocative work on guitar from Radomir Milojkovic – a player who uses sounds as much as notes, but can build into more rhythmic passages when needed. The group also features Robert Landfermann on bass and Christian Lillinger on drums – and titles include "Earth Tones", "Hope", "Sharing", "Earth Call", "Wisdom", "Unconditional Love", and "Hope".

Muriel GrossmannGolden Rule ... CD
Dreamland (Austria), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
Searing work from saxophonist Muriel Grossmann – a player who clearly draws a lot of inspiration from late 60s John Coltrane – but who also turns out a record here that's completely her own! The tracks are long, modal, and very spiritual – and the group has an unusual balance between Grossmann's tenor and soprano, and the guitar of Radomir Milojkovic – whose edgey tones here almost remind us of some of the trippier 60s sounds from Gabor Szabo! The group also features pulsing rhythms from Gina Schwarz on bass and Urus Stamenkovic on drums – a duo who really push things forward, and keep the soulful spirit of the music intact – but it's clearly Grossmann who's the lead star here, as she really blows us away with her work on both tenor and soprano! This is deep stuff – not an easy nod to the spiritual scene, but a much richer record – extremely well-conceived and executed. Titles include "Golden Rule", "Core", "Traneing In", "Trane", "Light", and "Direction". CD

Muriel GrossmannMomentum ... CD
Dreamland (Austria), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
Great work from one of the most important saxophonists to emerge in recent years – the mighty Muriel Grossmann, a player who seems to be more and more on fire with each new record! Grossmann's a very strong-voiced talent – first on soprano sax, which was her initial calling card – and here both on alto and tenor, set up in a strongly modal group that has fantastic basslines throughout – really driving the music – while the drummer ranges more freely, and guitarist Radomir Milojkovic provides a really key part of the group's unique sound! Where some might have used a piano, Muriel's putting the guitar in just the right spot – able to handle rhythm and melody effortlessly, all with this wide palette of colors and tone that really illuminates the record. Yet Grossmann's sound is still key throughout – rich, spiritual, and incredibly soulful – on titles that include "Chant", "Sacred", "Horizon", "Momentum", "Elevation", and "Gratitude". CD

Muriel GrossmannNatural Time ... CD
Dreamland (Austria), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
A real step forward for saxophonist Muriel Grossmann – as the set seems to have a new sort of fire that wasn't there on her debut – as Grossmann and quartet open up to embrace the world of modal rhythms! The tunes here all have this fantastic sense of pulse – energy that comes from these sublime basslines by Gina Schwarz, balanced with open-ended drumming from Uros Stamenkovic, and given all these warm colors by guitarist Radomir Milojkovic – a player who's equally brilliant on the record as Grossmann – who blows both soprano sax and alto, each with this amazingly intuitive sense of a solo – as if her spirit is effortlessly flowing through the horns. Titles include "African Dance", "Peace For All", "Bliss", "Natural Time", "Lightning", "Your Pace", and "Happiness". CD

James DaySong Soul Spirit (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
James Day Songs, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
James Day has always been one heck of a collaborative fellow – but this time around, he seems to be even more so than ever – as the album's overflowing with an insane amount of guests artists – a huge lineup that includes Gordon Chambers, Tony Terry, Audrey Wheeler, Glenn Jones, Sandra St Victor, Karen Bernod, Lalah Hathaway, Trina Broussard, U-Nam, Maysa, and others – soul singers both classic and contemporary, coming together here to bring a very joyous vibe to James' music! Many numbers feature more than one singer, creating a trading of vocals that really gives the record a lot of warmth – while Day handles the production and songwriting, sometimes with help from the other artists. Titles include "No Son Of Mine", "Forgiveness", "Battlegrounds", "Stand On My Shoulders", "Who Can Tell The Heart", "It's All Divine (Boogie Back mix)", and "Speak Love". CD features two tracks not on the digital version – "Dreamland" and "We Dance (Cool Million mix)". CD

Marcia GriffithsNaturally/Steppin ... CD
Sky Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A pair of albums from Marcia Griffiths – the well-titled queen of reggae at the end of the 70s! First up is Naturally, a fantastic album from Marcia Griffiths – very much the kind of material that made her one of the best female singers on the Jamaican scene in the 70s! The set's got a soulful sparkle that's undeniable – music that could have, should have (if things were right) gotten Marcia much bigger fame in the US crossover market of the time – as these songs work equally well as laidback soul numbers, even with strong reggae rhythms – thanks to the warmth and class of the vocals! A number of tracks are originals, and titles include "Dreamland", "Tell Me Now", "Melody Life", "Survival Is The Game", "Feel Like Jumping", "Mark My Word", and "Truly". Steppin features Marcia Griffiths at the height of her powers – singing wonderfully and soulfully, in a style that almost transcends her Jamaican roots! While other reggae singers of the period were maybe polishing things up a bit, to reach larger commercial fame, Griffiths seems to be stepping back more into soul, while still working with familiar Kingston rhythms – crafting this mode that's completely compelling, and which has as much personal feeling as some of the more powerful social themes of the roots era. Errol Brown recorded the tracks at Treasure Isle, and titles include "It's Impossible", "Steppin Out Of Babylon", "Where Were Why", "Why There Is No Love", "Give & You Get", and "I'm Hurting Inside".

Thelonious MonkComplete Black Lion & Vogue Recordings Of Thelonious Monk (4LP box set) ... LP
Mosaic, 1954/1971. Near Mint- 4LP Box Set ... $129.99
Seminal lost work by Monk! This great 4LP set brings together 11 rare French solo recordings from 1954, and a whopping batch of trio material from 1971, recordings that were some of the last great ones that Monk did in his all-too-short life. Record one of the set features material that was originally issued on Vogue records in Paris, and titles include "Jackie-ing", "Well, You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Off Minor", "Eronel", "Manganese", and the previously unissued "Meet Me Tonight In Dreamland". The other three albums feature late Black Lion recordings from 1971 – seminal stuff, as Monk was hardly being taken seriously by other labels at the time, and had walked away from his relationship with Columbia after they were pushing him to do more pop material. The sessions feature Monk solo on about half the tracks, then in a trio with Art Blakey on drums and Al McKibbon on bass (basically the core group of the legendary Giants Of Jazz recording on Atlantic, also done in London around the same time.) Way too many cuts to mention, but we can say that those sessions also include a number of unissued tracks. LP, Vinyl record album
(Box and book are in nice shape!)

Nana MouskouriVoice Of Greece (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99
A huge amount of early work from Nana Mouskouri – a singer who looked a bit like a librarian, with glasses to match – but who managed to catapult to huge global fame in the 60s and 70s! Part of that fame was due to the fact that Nana was not only a great singer, but also graced with a strong command of other languages too – which helped her score big on charts all over Europe, and in other parts of the globe. Yet this set focuses strongly on Mouskouri's earliest work in her native Greece – with lyrics all in Greek, which may come as quite a surprise if you only know some of Nana's bigger songs in French, English, or other languages. The backings often have a nicely understated quality – some folkloric elements hitting more modern arrangements, sometimes with a great current of jazz that really lights things up – and the 3CD package features 77 tracks in all, complete with notes – selections from albums that include The Voice Of Greece, Epitaphois & More Songs Of Her Homeland, Greece Dreamland Of Desire, and Pashalies Mesa Apo Tin Nekri Gi.

John Towner WilliamsWorld On A String ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good ... $14.99
An unusual session in the 50s Bethelehm catalog – one that features work by pianist/arranger John Towner Williams, based around a selection of Harold Arlen tunes, and set to a variety of larger backings that include west coast players Herb Geller, Milt Bernhardt, and Gene Cipriano! The style here is heavy on the trombones – using a brace of them on most tracks to create a fluid sense of tonal color – almost in a post-Kai & JJ way, but a bit more traditional overall. There's still some nice space for solo work, despite the larger arrangements on the set – and titles include "My Shining Hour", "Let's Fall In Love", "Stormy Weather", "Hit The Road To Dreamland", "Get Happy", and "That Old Black Magic". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small piece of clear tape on the top seam, in nice shape otherwise!)
