✨✧ Helen Sung & Marquis HillEverybody's Waltz ... LP
JMI, 2021. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really striking set of duets – one that opens up a whole new chapter in the career of pianist Helen Sung – and which maybe also offers one of the first instances we've seen of just a piano and trumpet coming together for a record! We love the music of Marquis Hill, and the sharp phrasing of the trumpeter is a perfect choice to match Helen's work here on the piano (and a bit of Fender Rhodes) – as the pair move beautifully through a set that features mostly original compositions by Sung. There's a loose feel to the tunes, but things are never too free either – and both players really feel as if they have been working together in this mode for a long time – as you'll hear on titles that include "Measure", "The Window", "Awakening", "Everybody's Waltz", "Perpetual", and "Playtime".

✨✧ Steve WilsonSit Back, Relax, & Unwind ... LP
Brown Brothers/JMI, 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful records we've heard from Steve Wilson in years – a set that's got an easygoing, open flow – in a way that really lives up to its title! Wilson is wonderful on alto and soprano sax – blowing in his most soulful style, but also pushing himself a bit too – really hitting these spiritual currents we don't always hear, in a way that has us re-evaulating his music all over again! Equally great on the record is keyboardist Ray Angry – who plays some sublime Fender Rhodes, as well as Yamaha C7 and Hammond B3 – in ways that are never too smooth, and often a bit edgey – making a perfect match for Wilson's horns. The rest of the quartet is great, too – rhythm that's rock-solid, but also nicely loose – with Ben Williams on bass and Willie Jones III on drums. Titles include "Jake's Place", "Rest Of Our Times", "Sit Back Relax & Unwind", "6/74", and a very cool instrumental reworking of David Bowie's "Space Oddity", with just Wilson's soprano and Angry's piano.
