Henry ThreadgillJust The Facts & Pass The Bucket ... CD
About Time, 1983. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Overlooked genius from Henry Threadgill – one of his under-exposed 80s sessions for the About Time label, and work that's every bit as great as his better-known sides for Delmark or Black Saint! The group here has a nice sense of freedom and interplay – almost a quality that hearkens back to Threadgill's roots in the AACM, thanks to strong contributions from Craig Harris on trombone, Olu Dara on trumpet, Fred Hopkins on bass, Deidre Murray on cello, and both Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch on percussion. The tracks are nicely arranged, but never too stiffly – and titles include "Cremation", "Black Blues", "Gateway", and "Just The Facts And Pass The Bucket". CD

✨✧ Henry ThreadgillSubject to Change ... LP
About Time, 1985. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Compelling compositions from the great Henry Threadgill – recorded here with a really like-minded batch of players who perfectly help him realize his musical vision! There's a nicely snakey feel to some of the tunes here – almost a journey in jazz expression from the left side of the spectrum – lead with a bit more strength than some of Threadgill's other contemporaries, but still allowing plenty of room for solo expression! Two percussionists drive the ensemble – Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch – and other players include Ray Anderson on trombone, Rasul Siddik on trumpet, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Deidre Murray on cello – as well as Threadgill himself on flute, alto, tenor, and clarinet. Amina Claudine Myers contributes vocals on one number – "A Piece Of Software", which features lyrics by Cassandra Wilson – and other titles include "Just Trinity The Man", "Homeostasis", "Higher Places", "Subject To Change", and "This".

✨✧ Henry ThreadgillWhen Was That? ... CD
About Time, 1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful, lyrical albums we've ever heard from Henry Threadgill – a set that still has all the sharp edges you might know from his other work, but which also comes across with a slightly more sensitive sound as well! The compositions are beautiful – really well-written, longer-thought concepts by Threadgill – perfectly paired with a lineup that includes Craig Harris on trombone, Olu Dara on cornet, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Pheeroan Aklaff and John Betsch on drums – players who work well with Henry's flute, alto, and tenor to craft these deep-feeling lines amidst inventive rhythms. Production is great – very unassuming, and just right for the mood – and titles include "Melin", "10 to 1", "Just B", "When Was That", and "Soft Suicide At The Baths". CD

AirAir Time ... CD
Nessa, 1977. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
One of the best albums ever by this legendary Chicago trio – a great example of the way that records on the Nessa label can really get to the heart of artists' intentions! The trio of Henry Threadgill on reeds, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on percussion have never sounded better – and have this intimate, soulful interplay that's sometimes missing from other efforts – that special kind of energy that makes the AACM so great when it's really clicking this well – as deeply spiritual as it is freely expressive! Threadgill plays alto, tenor, bass flute, and the compelling hubkaphone – and titles include "I'll Be Right Here Waiting", "No 2", "GvE", "Subtraction", and "Keep Right On Playing Thru The Mirror Over The Water".

Thulani DavisNothing But The Music ... Book
Blank Forms, 2021. New Copy ... $15.99 20.00
Fantastic work from an overlooked poet – one who takes up music as her subject matter throughout this collection of work – with individual pieces on Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, the Bad Brains, Thelonious Monk, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and other key figures in music from the farther side of the spectrum! The poems are wonderful – personal and immediate, and often not nearly as heady as some of the subject matter – which almost makes Davis' writing a great bridge to understanding, especially as the work is often delivered with this sense of immediate observation that historicizes moments of creativity, both hers and the artists within. It's a bit hard to describe the strength of this book in words, but the power leaps from the page right away – given some brief commentary in additional text from Tobi Haslett and Jessica Hagedorn.

Roscoe MitchellLRG/The Maze/S II Examples ... CD
Nessa, 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
A crucial record from Roscoe Mitchell – a set that builds both on his important solo work, and his musical discoveries with the Art Ensemble of Chicago – but which also opens up the more sonic territory that would soon set Mitchell and a few other colleagues apart, and open up even more possibilities for experimentation in the AACM! The set begins with "LRG" – a trio piece with two key collaborators – George Lewis on trombones and sousaphone, and Leo Smith on trumpets – both working with Mitchell, who blows piccolo, flute, oboe, clarinet, soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxes – in these amazing ranges of sounds, tones, and shapes – almost a catalog of improvisational possibilities. "The Maze" is even more striking – less reed work, and instead a piece done for eight percussionists – with an unlikely lineup that features Anthony Braxton, Malachi Favors, Joseph Jarman, Douglas Ewart, Don Moye, Thurman Barker, Mitchell, and Henry Threadgill – in this moody, choppy piece that runs for twenty minutes. Last up is "S II Examples" – probably our favorite – as it's got Roscoe playing solo soprano in a long tone-oriented piece that sounds a lot more like some electronic instrument than it does a soprano sax – further proof that he was really doing tremendous things at the time!

Roscoe MitchellNonaah ... CD
Nessa, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 25.99
A seminal session from Roscoe Mitchell – beautiful work recorded for the small Nessa label, and a real testament to the fragile beauty of his music! Some of the tracks are solo, and others feature Roscoe in shifting groups with other AACM players – a duet with bassist Malachi Favors, another with reedman Anthony Braxton, a trio with Muhal Richard Abrams on piano and George Lewis on trombone, and a quartet with Joseph Harman, Henry Threadgill, and Wallace McMillan. The sound's about as haunting as you can get for the AACM in the 70s – sensitive sounds, complex tones, and a rich approach to creative music that goes far beyond jazz – a really stark contrast to the styles of New York or European avant players from the same period! Titles include "Off Five Dark Six", "A1 Tal 2LA", "Nonaah", "Sing", "Chant", "Ericka", and "Tahquemenon". CD

✨✧ Muhal Richard AbramsYoung At Heart/Wise In Time ... LP
Delmark, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic early stuff from Muhal – and one of his most beautiful albums! Side one features an extended performance of Sinatra's big hit "Young At Heart" – but the track's played solo by Abrams, and it's completely transformed into a long contemplative work of beauty. "Wise In Time" is a heavier work by a quintet with Leo Smith, Henry Threadgill, Lester Lashley, and Thurman Barker. LP, Vinyl record album
(70s white label Lincoln Ave pressing with blue text. Labels were applied on opposite sides, with corrections written in pen.)

✨✧ Muhal Richard AbramsComplete Remastered Recordings On Black Saint/Soul Note Vol 2 (Sightsong/Shadowgraph/1-OQA+19/Lifelong Ambitions/Duet/Colors In 33rd/Familytalk/Duets & Solos/Song For All) (9CD set) ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 9CDs ... Out Of Stock
Music from one of the greatest periods ever for AACM legend Muhal Richard Abrams – a time when the pianist was opening up in so many different creative directions! The first volume of this Black Saint/Soul Note series was great, but we almost like this one even better – as it features some of Abrams' more personal, more intimate recordings – which are a real revelation if you only know his bigger compositions or work with large ensembles. We love this side of Abrams as an improviser – and albums include Sightsong, with bassist Malachi Favors; Lifelong Ambitions with violinist Leroy Jenkins; Duet with pianist Amina Claudine Myers; and Duets & Solos with saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell. Other albums include 1-OQA+19, with Anthony Braxton (as you might guess from the title), Steve McCall, and Henry Threadgill; Colors In Thirty Third, with John Blake, Dave Holland, Fred Hopkins, and Andrew Cyrille; Song For All, with Eddie Allen, Craig Harris, and others; and Familytalk, with Jack Walrath, Warren Smith, and Patience Higgins. Also includes the great date led by trombonist George Lewis – Shadowgraph 5 (Sextet) – which also features Anthony Davis, Douglas Ewart, Roscoe Mitchell, Leroy Jenkins, and Abdul Wadud. All albums come in tiny record-style sleeves – and the box features 9 records in all! CD

✨✧ Eric DolphyMusical Prophet – The Expanded 1963 New York Studio Sessions (Iron Man/Conversations/unissued tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Resonance, Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic package that finally gives these recordings their proper due – one that takes the cuts that were issued on the albums Iron Man and Conversations (plus a million cheapo packages over the years) – and restores them to their original mono, right from the tapes – then adds in 85 more minutes of never issued material! The tracks here are a perfect balance of Dolphy in his final year – with some spiritual jazz currents, but still a strong sense of swing – with a fantastic lineup that includes Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, Clifford Jordan on soprano, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Richard Davis on bass, and both JC Moses and Charles Moffett on drums – almost a who's-who of people who would go onto shape the face of jazz in years to come. Titles include "A Personal Statement", "Ode To Charlie Parker", "Iron Man", "Come Sunday", "Burning Spear", "Muses For Richard Davis", "Alone Together", "Love Me", and "Jitterbug Waltz" – plus a number of other different versions of tunes. 3CD set comes with a 100 page booklet – featuring photos, essays, and interviews with Sonny Simmons, Sonny Rollins, Nicole Mitchell, Henry Threadgill, and David Murray.
