John TchicaiCadentia Nova Danica (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99
Brilliant early work by saxophonist John Tchicai – recorded in Denmark with a larger ensemble, in the years of his European exile after the dissolution of the New York Contemporary Five. Players include Karsten Vogel on alto and percussion, Max Bruel on baritone and piano, and Hugh Steinmetz on trumpet – and the tracks are a mixture of Dutch free jazz and some of the more contemplative scoring of Tchicai's earlier work – but always handled with that special sort of quality that makes Tchicai's work stand out so much, and which makes experiments like this such an important precursor to spiritual jazz projects in the 70s! Tracks ring out with a majesty and power that Tchicai rarely had in his later work – and titles include "Kirsten", "Orga Fleur Super Asam", "Lilanto Del Indio", and "Inside Thule". CD

✨✧ John ColtraneAscension (remastered) ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the freest, most exploratory albums ever recorded by John Coltrane – and a unique session done with an expanded group of some of the most important avant jazz players of his generation! The format here is similar to Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz album – in that the music is freely improvised, and spans the entire LP as a non-stop performance – one that has Coltrane in the lead, but which also features alto from Marion Brown and John Tchicai, tenor from Archie Shepp and Pharaoh Sanders, trumpet from Freddie Hubbard and Dewey Johnson – and core rhythms from McCoy Tyner on piano, drums from Elvin Jones, and double basses from Art Davis and Jimmy Garrison. The record set the format for larger improvistory groups in years to come – but is still one of the best examples of the form! CD
(Out of print, remastered edition – includes both versions of the title track! Digipack case has some edgewear.)

An amazing document of this legendary improvising collective – material recorded over the span of many years – from 1967 to 2009 – and featuring some of the most important free jazz players on the planet!

ICP TentetTetterettet ... LP
Instant Composers Pool/Our Swimmer (Germany), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.99
A landmark record from the Dutch jazz scene – one that takes all the strong 70s years of free improvisation in that world, and helps it find a new sort of focus! As fans of the scene know, ICP stands for Instant Composers Pool – writing while improvising on the spot – a notion that's applied here to a completely amazing tentet, with a lineup that moves even beyond the core scene – to include Misha Mengelberg on piano, John Tchicai on alto and soprano, Gilius Bergeyk on alto, Peter Bennink on alto and sopranino, Peter Brotzmann on alto and tenor, Bert Koppelaar on trombone, Tristan Honsinger on cello, Alan Silva on bass, Han Bennink on drums and bass clarinet, and Michel Waisisz on the very cool "crackle box". The force of the individual players is already amazing – but the way they come together here is breathtaking – sometimes with a full blast that should be chaos, but which finds an amazing sense of song, thanks in part to the strength of Mengelberg on piano. Titles include "Valse Trovee", "Ludvig's Blue Note", "Dank", "Alexander's Marschbefehl", "Rumboon", and five "Tetterettet" selections. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSpiritual Jazz Vol 11 – Esoteric, Modal, & Progressive Jazz From The SteepleChase Label 1974 to 1984 ... CD
Steeplechase/Jazzman (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99
A massive collection of music from the Steeplechase label – spiritual sounds from back in the day, and a side of the label's legacy that's only gotten the right sort of appreciation in more recent years! Steeplechase was a European company, and their biggest claim to fame was recordings of American musicians overseas – especially Dexter Gordon – but the label also had a fantastic ear for more soulful currents on the American underground, and not only managed to capture some less-recorded artists, but also give some bigger names a freer space to express the more spiritual side of their styles! The set is a sublime set of work from the post-Coltrane years – tunes that are modal, soulful, and occasionally slightly funky – served up in a set of completely uplifting music, all supported by the usual excellent Jazzman attention to detail and thorough liner notes. Titles include "The Time Of This World Is At Hand" by Billy Gault, "Tipe Tizwe" by Jim McNeely, "Aida" by Rene McLean, "Dark Warrior" by Khan Jamal, "Naima" by Michael Carvin, "Magwaza" by Johnny Dyani with John Tchicai & Dudu Pukwana, "Ode To St Cecile" by Mary Lou Williams, "Jean Marie" by Sam Jones, "Miss Priss" by Ken McIntyre, and "De I Comahlee Ah" by Jackie McLean & Michael Carvin.

✨✧ New York Art QuartetCall It Art – New York Art Quartet 1964/1964 (5LP wooden box set) ... LP
Triple Point, Mid 60s. New Copy 5LP ... Out Of Stock
An insanely fantastic package – one that adds to the all-too-small recorded catalog of this legendary group – a combo who were together for only a short time, but really set a new fire for free jazz on both sides of the Atlantic! All material here has never been circulated before, and it's very much on a par with the group's famous ESP album, and other records that have come out over the years – with performances by a core trio of Roswell Rudd on trombone, John Tchicai on reeds, and Milford Graves on drums and percussion – plus work from a shifting array of musicians who include Lewis Worrell and Reggie Workman on bass, Alan Shorter on trumpet, and even Amiri Baraka offering up a bit of spoken material. The limited, numbered set comes in a handmade white birch box, which also includes a 156 page hardcover book that's filled with archival photos, notes, and other images. The whole thing is obviously crazy expensive – but a real treasure and a key look at this groundbreaking group! LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 665!)
