Enrico Rava, Sergio Fanni, Modern Jazz Gang, & OthersJazz In Italy ... LP
Honey Pie, Early 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
A legendary overview of jazz on the Italian scene at the start of the 60s – a great document of the new modes that was really setting the work of Italian jazz musicians apart from those in other parts of Europe – working with fresh ideas and a new conception that's completely sublime! The work here often has a great balance between structure and individual voice – and many numbers feature strong soloists who'd go on to great fame in a variety of settings – already graced here with talents that seem greater than their young years. Trumpeter Enrico Rava leads things off in a quartet with pianist Maurizio Lama, on a version of the tune "Line For Lyons" – and Lama follows with a trio reading of his own "Tema For Franco". Trumpeter Sergio Fanni is joined by the great Eraldo Volante on tenor and baritone on the tunes "Duo" and "Circeo". Later soundtrack artist Piero Umiliani serves up his "Picolla Suite Americana" – followed by the Modern Jazz Gang of saxophonist Sandro Brugnolini (with later sound library giants Enzo Scoppa and Cicci Santucci), on the tracks "The Drum Is A Tramp" and "Blue Mirria". Trombonist Dino Piana delivers the tune "Tempo Di Febbraio" with help from the great Gianni Basso on tenor – and the set also features a reading of "Bag's Groove" with Giorgio Azzolini on bass, Piano on trombone, and Attilio Donadio on alto.

✨✧ Andrew Cyrille/William Parker/Enrico Rava2 Blues For Cecil ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2022. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99 Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three legendary improvisers – coming together in a set of music that reminds us that with work like this, they're maybe even more essential than ever! All three players have risen to new heights in recent years – giving us music under their own names that really re-affirm their place in the jazz cosmos – but here, working together on longer improvisations, they seem to knock it out of the park even more – especially Rava, whose trumpet really seems set on fire in the company of William Parker's bass and Andrew Cyrille's drums! The title of the record is a reference to two of the album's long tracks dedicated to Cecil Taylor – but in a way, the whole thing serves as such – as the trio really work forward to negotiate new space in the improvising territory opened up by Taylor many years back – on titles that include "Overboard", "Enrava Melody", "Blues For Cecil No 1", "Improvisation No 1", "Ballerina", "Machu Picchu", and "Top Bottom & What's In The Middle".

✨✧ Enrico RavaEdizioni Speciale ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2022. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99 Temporarily Out Of Stock
The special edition title here is very well-put – as the record's a real standout from Enrico Rava – a live session with a sextet, and one that has Rava opening up with even more color and life than usual! From the very first note, there's something really wonderful about the record – Enrico blows flugelhorn throughout – sometimes out front in the lead, but almost always followed by these really great contributions from the group – a lineup that includes Francesco Bearzatti on tenor, Francesco Diodati on guitar, Giovanni Guidi on piano, Gabriele Evangelista on bass, and Enrico Morello on drums – all musicians who weave this wonderful tapestry of sound with Rava, and make the record very different than some of the more spare, atmospheric sessions the leader recorded for ECM. Titles include "Theme For Jessica Tatum", "Infant", "Wild Dance", "Fearless Five", "Le Solite Cose", and "Diva". CD

✨✧ Enrico Rava & Aga Taura ConfabEl Convidado ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99 Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure albums ever recorded by Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava – and one of the greatest as well! The set is a rare meeting between Rava and some key players on the Argentine scene of the mid 70s – a great quartet that features Fernando Gelbard on Fender Rhodes, Adalberto Cevasco on bass, Nestor Astarita on drums, and Chango Faras Gomez on percussion – all working with Rava in a groove that's maybe warmer and more soulful than both his spacious and more experimental sides recorded in America and overseas! We always love Gelbard on Rhodes – and his work here really adds a lot to the record – never dominating, but always shaping the sound and forming the rhythm patterns – while Rava soars out with some open, well-placed solos. Titles include "Chico", "Ate Um Dia", "Barco Hasta El Cielo", and "Enrico Seis Octavo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Enrico Rava & Mario RuscaDNA (clear red vinyl) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Saar Milano (Italy), 1997. New Copy ... $34.99 Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from the Italian scene of the 90s – a set that features the sparkling trumpet work of Enrico Rava next to the bold piano lines of Mario Rusca – both coming together here with the vibe of some lost session from the Rom scene of the 60s and 70s! Rusca works here with his core trio – Lucio Terzano on bass and Tony Arco on drums – and on three of the album's tracks, the trio stands alone – great enough together, although the presence of Rava makes things especially nice on the remaining tracks – and Enrico blows in a way that's very different than some of his other late 90s material. Titles include "Chromosome Blues", "DNA", "How High The Moon", "Flawless", and "You & The Night & The Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Robin KenyattaTerra Nova ... LP
Altantic, 1973. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A cool bit of funk from reedman Robin Kenyatta – slightly electric, and often with a bit of an angular groove – almost a South African influence at times, although warmed up with a good dose of American soul as well! Most numbers here have some sort of keyboards – either from Pat Rebillot's electric piano or Neville Hinds' keyboards – and in addition to Robin's reedwork on alto and soprano sax, the set also features Enrico Rava on trumpet, Jonas Gwangwa on trombone, Carlos Garnett on tenor, and Sonny Burke on organ. Rhythm is at the core of the set – and is handled by either Ron Carter or Boris Gardner on bass, Ray Lucas or Winston Grennan on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion. Parts of the set were recorded in Kingston – a fact that definitely shows in the grooves – and Betty Davis makes a brief guest appearance on vocals! Tracks include "Terra Nova", "Temptation Took Control Of Me", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Need Your Love So Bad", "Touch", and "Island Shakedown". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cecil TaylorMusic From Two Continents – Live At Jazz Jamboree 84 ... CD
Listen Foundation (Poland), 1984. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99 Just Sold Out!
One of the most ambitious Cecil Taylor projects of the 80s – a special project performed by a large ensemble at a jazz festival in Poland – an incredible group who really expand the vision in Cecil's music! Make no mistake, Taylor is definitely the leader here – his piano and vocalizations really direct the entire set – but the music brims over with contributions from giants who include Tomasz Stanko and Enrico Rava on trumpets, Conrad Bauer on trombone, Jimmy Lyons on alto, Frank Wright and John Tchicai on tenors, Gunter Hampel on bass clarinet and vibes, and William Parker on bass. The performance features one long piece, but graced with all these really beautiful themes amidst the freer improvisations – coming across with a global vision in jazz that's maybe not unlike some of Charlie Haden's Liberation Music projects, but freer and bolder overall!

✨✧ Globe Unity Orchestra & GuestsPearls ... LP
FMP/Be! (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 28.99 Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from the Globe Unity Orchestra – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the quality of the group's work in the 70s! The ensemble were key in helping to develop the concept of an improvising orchestra – not the older model of a group where the players might get some short solo space – but a setting of many musicians, all improvising together as they make their way through loose compositional ideas – really opening new doors in music along the way! The remarkable thing here is that the lineup is all heavy hitters, but they all find space to respect and encourage each other as they create on the spot – a large lineup that includes Enrico Rava, Manfred Schoof, and Kenny Wheeler on trumpets; Anthony Braxton, Peter Brotzmann, Ruiger Carl, Evan Parker, Michel Pilz, and Gerd Dudek on reeds; Albert Mangelsdorff, Paul Rutherford, and Gunter Christmann on trombones; Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano; Peter Kowald and Buschi Niebergall on basses; and Paul Lovens on drums. Titles include the side-long "Every Single One Of Us Is A Pearl" – with more than enough space to allow individual musical expression, and really live up to its title – plus a version of Monk's "Ruby My Dear", with arrangements by Schlippenbach, and the tracks "Kunstmusik II" and "The Onliest The Loneliest".

✨✧ 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 ... $29.99 36.99 Out Of Stock
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.
