✨✧ Hal GalperDreamsville ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1986. Used ... Just Sold Out!
If you don't think Hal Galper's a hell of a pianist, this may be the record to change your mind – as Hal's in top form throughout – really focused and full of power in his approach to the piano, but never in a way that's flashy or overdone! Instead, there's this organic sensibility to the record that makes everything feel just right – very personal, and with very fresh arrangements on familiar tunes – but in a way that makes us feel like we can follow Galper every step of the way, and smile with warm approval at each new twist and turn. There's few pianists that can make us say "oh yeah" with that kind of regularity – and titles include "Dreamsville", "Don't Blame Me", "High Fly", "Lament", and "Sweet Pumpkin" – played with a trio that includes Steve Gilmore on bass and Bill Goodwin on drums.

Hal GalperGuerilla Band/Rebop/Just Us (3CD set) ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970/1995. New Copy 3CDs ... $18.99 23.99
A trio of albums from pianist Hal Galper – one early, two later, and served up in a single set! Guerilla Band is electric piano genius from Hal Galper – one of his best non-acoustic albums ever, and a set that's filled with moody colors and changes! The album's a fair bit more dynamic than some of Galper's other albums from the 70s – with horns from the Brecker Brothers, guitar from Bob Mann, and tightly rhythmic work on the bottom that makes some of the best numbers hear all-out funky jams! There's a sharply angular feel to the record that's made it a favorite for beatheads for years – plenty of tunes that are ripe for samples, even when things get slightly mellow – and Galper's approach to the keys is really amazing, unlike any other player we can think of at the time! Titles include "Figure Eight", "Call", "Black Night", "Point of View", "Welcome To My Dream", and "Rise & Fall". Rebop is a gem of a later album from pianist Hal Galper – one that has him teaming up with tenorist Jerry Bergonzi, as both players really find a way to make the other sound great! Galper's always got a nicely spacious approach to the piano – using the spots between the notes in just the right way, which is great for Jerry, as he likes to fill them with well-placed, well-timed tenor elements that really make his horn sound great. The balance is a bit like that which Bergonzi brings up on some of his best sessions for Red Records – and the group also features Jeff Johnson on bass, and Steve Ellington on drums. Titles include "All The Things You Aren't", "Jackie-Ing", "Take The Coltrane", "Laura", and "It's Magic". On Just Us, the trio of pianist Hal Galper gets some great guest work here from tenorist Jerry Bergonzi – a rich-toned player who really seems to bring out a different vibe in Hal's music! Galper's touch on the keys seems to be extra-dexterous here – really spinning out these long, lively lines that are balance with the well-placed tones of Bergonzi – given gently swinging support from Pat O'Leary on bass and Steve Ellington on drums! Many of the tunes are standards, but opened up with all these great colors – and titles include "Just Us", "Bye Bye Blackbird", "Stablemates", "Lover Man", "I'll Never Be The Same", and "Unforgettable".

Hal GalperReach Out ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1977. Used ... $14.99
One of the few 70s sessions that features Hal Galper working with horns – in this case the Brecker Brothers, who really add a nice degree of fire to the set! Rhythm is by Wayne Dockery on bass and Billy Hart on drums – and Hal's playing acoustic piano, giving the album lots of warm tones and a sweet mellow feel overall. Titles include "Waiting For Chet", "Children Of The Night", "Spidit", and "Reach Out". CD

✨✧ Hal GalperArt-Work – Live At The Jazz Room ... CD
Origin, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hal Galper sounds as great as ever on this recent live set – as bold, strong, and powerful on the keys now as he did back in the 70s – getting some especially great support from Reggie Workman on bass and Rashied Ali on drums! Both players give the record a bit of an edge – a sound that's slightly more open and exploratory than some of Galper's straighter work, in a way that shakes out some of his warmer tones, and brings in more angular lines on the piano – notes that aren't exactly free, but freewheeling in their energy, especially on the more familiar tunes. Titles include "Take The Coltrane", "Soul Bod", "Blue In Green", "Soliloquy", "When Autumn Leaves Us", and "Constellation". CD

✨✧ Hal GalperWild Bird ... LP
Mainstream, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever recorded by pianist Hal Galper – and that's saying a lot, given his huge legacy of records! This set has Hal working in a strongly electric mode – using an electric piano with the same sort of spacious qualities he could bring to acoustic – never jamming as hard as some of his more dynamic 70s contemporaries, but in a really great way that creates a special energy on the record – not just for Galper, but also for the groupmates, who really seem to bring out their best. The lineup includes Randy Brecker on trumpet and Michael Brecker on tenor and soprano sax – both playing in the darker edges of their sound – and the record also features guitar, bass, and drums. Some moments are funky, but the real stand out tracks have an even more special electric vibe – and titles include "This Moment", "Whatever", "Wild Bird", and "Change Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has very light wear, but this is a great copy overall.)

✨✧ Hal GalperChildren Of The Night (aka Speak With A Single Voice – plus bonus track) ... CD
Century/Double Time, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great little album from pianist Hal Galper – a set that's strong not only for his own great work on piano, but also for returning the Brecker Brothers to a straighter jazz world, during a time when they were turning out tight jazz funk records on their own! Both the tenor of Michael Brecker and trumpet of Randy Brecker sound wonderful here – full of inventive tones, and able to open up alongside those beautifully blocky lines by Galper on piano – handled here on the acoustic instrument, but with some of the structures that he learned during his years on the Fender Rhodes. The rest of the group features Wayne Dockery on bass and Bob Moses on drums – and tracks include "Blue & Green", "Now Hear This", "Speak With A Single Voice", and "Waiting For Chet". Also features a very long bonus cut – "Children Of The Night". CD

A real gem from Phil Woods' back to basics years of the 80s – a time when he seemed to be able to make magic happen anywhere – no matter the label, no matter the setting! Here, Phil's in some very familiar territory that really has him opening up with ease – not just the Village Vanguard, but a warm quartet with Hal Galper on piano, Steve Gilmore on bass, and Bill Goodwin on drums – an easygoing ensemble that really lets Woods' solo lines spin out like magic! Titles include "Very Early", "Webb City", "Prelude To A Kiss", and a sublime soulful take on "Springsville". CD

✨✧ Chet BakerBaby Breeze (Japanese pressing) ... CD
EmArcy (Japan), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really cool 60s session from the great Chet Baker – one that moves away from the standard sound of his 50s work, and shows that unusual sense of careful sonic energy that would mark his further development over the decades! Chet's got a great sound here – blowing flugelhorn instead of trumpet, with a cool compressed vibe that's augmented by work from a very hip group that includes Frank Strozier on alto and flute, Phil Urso on tenor sax, and piano work by either Bob James or Hal Galper – both at a very early point in their careers! Titles include "Baby Breeze", "This Is The Thing", "I Wish You Love", "Pamela's Passion", and "Comin Down". CD

Fantasy/OJC, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Cannonball Adderley's late funky sessions for Fantasy – and a record that still features some mighty heavy production from David Axelrod! The album's got that core groove that Axe and Cannon first crafted together at Capitol in the 60s – but the sound here has some definite 70s touches too – a bit more emphasis on electric piano, played here by Hal Galper – and rhythms that are even funkier than before! Other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Walter Booker on bass, Roy McCurdy on drums, and King Errison on percussion – and titles include the excellent "Snakin' the Grass", which is just ripe for samplin', plus some other good grooves like "Second Son", "Saudade", "Five Of A Kind", and "Inside Straight".

✨✧ Chet BakerChet Baker Plays & Sings (aka Most Import Jazz Album Of 1964/65) ... LP
Jazz Junction, 1964. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Great work from Chet Baker, and one of his strongest jazz albums of the 60s – even if the title makes a pretty ambitious claim! (And given those heady years of 1964 and 1965, Chet's got an awful lot of important albums to contend with!) The album steps nicely off of some of Chet's late 50s work for Pacific Jazz – the harder, more burning sides he cut at the end of the previous decade – records that marked a real departure from some of his mellower early work. The group here is well suited to help Chet reach a new level – as players include Phil Urso on tenor, Hal Galper on piano, Jymie Merritt on bass, and Charlie Rice on drums – all working in tight formation to arrangements by Galper, Tadd Dameron, and Jimmy Mundy. Titles include "Soultrane", "Mating Call", "Flight To Jordan", "Retsim B", "Walkin", and "Gnid". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Randy BreckerScore ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very cool early Randy Brecker album – recorded years before he was working in tighter, R&B-inflected styles – and was instead an up-and-coming player with a surprisingly sharp edge! The set's produced by Duke Pearson, and has a groovy sound that's similar to Blue Note dates of the late 60s – jazz at the core, but a willingness to bring in some other pre-fusion elements – most notably the electric piano of Hal Galper, which sounds great next to drums from Bernard Purdie and bass from Eddie Gomez! Brother Michael plays tenor, and Galper wrote a lot of the tracks – with that good groovy electric funk sound that he did so well at this time. Titles include "The Vamp", "The Weasel Goes Out To Lunch", "Pipe Dream", "The Marble Sea", and "Bangalore". LP, Vinyl record album
