Stone AllianceHeads Up ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1979/1980. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Stone Alliance move down to a duo here – the mighty team of Don Alias on drums and Gene Perla on bass – and the pair bring in a whole host of great guest stars to take the place of recently-departed reedman Steve Grossman! To us, the record would be more than great enough on its own with just the grooves of Perla and Alias – but the set really warms up from contributions by artists who include Michael Brecker on tenor, Dave Liebeman on reeds, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Alex Acuna on percussion, and Jan Hammer on keyboards – keeping things as tight and focused as on his best 70s funky fusion outings. Perla and Alias keep things tight and choppy in the rhythms – a nice undercurrent of funk on most tracks – and titles include "Pedra Da Lua", "Trampoline", "Aunt Remus", "Tribute To Afreeka", and "Uncle Jemima".

Stone AllianceLive In Amsterdam ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Full-on sounds from the mighty Stone Alliance trio – a record that comes on strong right from the start, then doesn't let up for a minute! We love the studio albums from this group in the 70s, but they seem especially on fire on this live date from the late 70s – a firey fusion of the tenor of Steve Grossman, bass of Gene Perla, and drums and percussion of Don Alias! As much as Grossman sounds great in later years, he's got an extra special sort of quality here – one that really makes the album soar with his soulful, almost spiritual solos – which are often brought back nicely to earth from the funkier currents of the bass and drums. Titles include "Zulu Stomp", "New York Bossa", "Arfonk", "Aunt Remus", "Taurus People", "King Tut", "Menina Ilza", and "Miss T". CD

Stone AllianceLive In Bremen ... CD
PM/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... About August 7, 2019
A rare European performance from the Stone Alliance trio – one that was recorded at the same time as their legendary run of albums for the PM label, but never issued at the time! The tracks are nice and long here, and the group really break out – still every bit as tight as on their well-remembered albums of hard funk and heavy jazz, but with some freer elements at times – especially from Steve Grossman's tenor on his long solos, and also from percussionist Don Alias on one long track that's just a 9 minute solo on congas! Other titles include a nice reading of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", plus "Samba De Negro", "Sweetie Pie", "King Tut", and "Taurus People". CD

Stone AllianceLive In Buenos Aries ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
A previously-unreleased live set by this smoking 70s trio – a legendary powerhouse that was often able to work with the same sharpness as the most hard-hitting fusion groups, but in a style that was all acoustic all the way through! The great Gene Perla's on bass – setting up these lines that are nicely a few more complicated steps away from funk, but which often have an equal punch – while Don Alias rocks things hard on the drums, and the great Steve Grossman blows his head off on tenor – keeping things sharp, but always soulful – on titles that include "Zulu Stomp", "Taurus People", "Conga Solo", "King Tut", "New York Bossa", and "Miss T".

Stone AllianceStone Alliance ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $16.99
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great sharp edge he brought to his initial early recordings in the post-Coltrane years! But there's also a deeper sound going on here, too – a bit of funk, and definitely a bit of Latin in the percussion and basslines – which makes for these grooves that are as complicated as they are infectious – often given some sweet spiritual tones from the reeds on top! The lineup features Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums and percussion – all working together with tremendous energy, but a great focus too – always soulful, and never too jamming at all. Titles include the insane break track "Sweetie Pie", plus Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", "Duet", "King Tut", "Samba De Negro" and "Vaya Mulatto". CD

Al FosterMixed Roots (Laurie) ... LP
Laurie, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The cover's not much to look at – but it houses a mighty nice set of funky 70s jazz! Drummer Al Foster leads the crew on this obscure session produced by Teo Macero for the mostly-rock Laurie label – and even though the album's kind of hidden under a completely innocuous cover that has a closeup of a Christmas Tree (?), it bursts out with a strong funky jazz groove that reminds us of some of the best drum-heavy electric 70s sessions in our collection, like work by Ed Thigpen or Les DeMerle. Players include Masabumi Kikuchi on electric piano, Mike Brecker and Sam Morrison on saxes, and Paul Metzke on guitar – and Teo Macero also sits in on the electric keys on one of the album's mellower cuts. There's not really any standout drum breaks that we caught on the set – but there are a lot of great choppy funk tracks in that "heavy drums meet riffing reeds" style that was started by Elvin Jones and popularized by Stone Alliance. Titles include "Mixed Roots", "Ya Damn Right", "Pauletta", "Double Stuff", and "Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve GrossmanTerra Firma ... CD
PM/Solid (Japan), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $16.99
A stone slammer from saxophonist Steve Grossman – and a set that's served up in the same funky style as the best work by the related Stone Alliance combo! The core trio features tremendous interplay between the hard-biting tenor of Steve Grossman the funky bass of Gene Perla, and slamming drums and percussion of Don Alias – and the set also features some great contributions from Jan Hammer on keyboard – playing Fender Rhodes and moog with a wonderfully funky, soulful style – quite different than some of his more jamming work with other artists. There's a really sharp, angular feel to the whole set – electric grooves that are heavy on rhythms, yet also have a nice sense of freedom on the tenor – and titles include "This Way Out", "Inmate Man", "Katonah", "Enya", and "In It".

✨✧ Charles MingusClown ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning stuff – and one of the greatest Charles Mingus albums of all time – a true treasure recorded in that magical year of 1957, when Mingus was finally finding his strongest voice in modern music! The album's near-perfect from start to finish – as bold a statement in jazz as anyone might be allowed to make in the late 50s, yet still always focused, driven, and wrapped up with a tremendous sense of energy. The tracks are all quite long – perfect vehicles for Mingus to reach his full level of expression – played by a group that includes Curtis Porter on tenor and alto sax, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, Wade Legge on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums – making an early appearance in his alliance with Mingus that would last for many many years. Titles include classic versions of "Haitian Fight Song", "Blue Cee", and "Reincarnation Of A Lovebird" – plus "The Clown", which features a long improvised monologue by Jean Shephard!

✨✧ Dave BrubeckStardust (Brubeck Desmond/Dave Brubeck Quartet) ... LP
Fantasy, Early 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A Dave Brubeck/Paul Desmond double header – two vintage albums in a single package! Stardust is great stuff from the early days of the Brubeck/Desmond alliance – when Dave's piano had first met up with Paul's alto, with incredible results that would soon transform the face of popular jazz. The set's mostly standards – but it does include 2 strong originals, "Crazy Chris" and "Lyons Busy", as well as some Brubeck-ized versions of tunes like "Frenesi", "Mamselle", and "At A Perfume Counter". Dave Brubeck Quartet is sublime early work from pianist Dave Brubeck – already recording here with the amazing Paul Desmond on alto sax – in the kind of magical blend that would bring both players great fame by the end of the 50s! Even at this early point, the subtle modern touches are perfectly in place – that blend of space, sound, color, and tone that made the Brubeck/Desmond team so unique – recorded here without any other gimmicks or trappings to get in the way. The set mostly features shorter versions of standards – including "Stardust", "Just One Of Those Things", "Alice In Wonderland", and "All The Things You Are" – but it also features an amazing 14 minute take on "At A Perfume Counter", with really extended solo lines from Desmond!

✨✧ In The TraditionAncestral Alliances ... CD
AFJ, 2017. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from this ultra-hip Detroit ensemble – a contemporary group, but one whose musical message takes us back to the sounds of older acts like Fertile Ground or Oneness Of Juju! As with both of those groups, the style here mixes jazz with a wider sense of message and purpose – music that soars out to the skies with pride and positive energy, while also offering a deeper, more introspective conception of its role and power in culture. Tracks are instrumental and vocal – and the double-length album has nary a slow moment at all – as the group burst forth in a warm array of percussion and horns – sometimes a bit funky, always quite spiritual throughout. Olujimi Tafataona arranged, produced, and provided creative vision – and titles include his own "We Cry Freedom", "Stephen", "Brother Chokwe Lumumba", "War Is Here", "Assata", and "Fantasy For Violin & Four Winds" – plus versions of Lee Morgan's "Caramba", Jimmy Heath's "Gemini", John Coltrane's "The Sleeper", Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", and the Kool & The Gang classic "Chocolate Buttermilk".
