Keith JarrettDark Intervals ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1988. Used ... $6.99
A live performance from pianist Keith Jarrett, recorded at Suntory Hall in Tokyo – but one that's a bit different than some of the solo sets that came earlier in his career, as it's got both a different sound and different style overall! The tracks here aren't side-long improvisations, and instead are shorter tunes that offer up a compressed version of the freewheeling Jarrett style on the piano – still with a sense of openness that really sets Keith apart from the rest, but maybe with more pronounced melodies – although many of those are as dark as you might guess from the title! Tracks include "Fire Dance", "Ritual Prayer", "Hymn", "Americana", "Parallels", and "Entrance". CD

Keith JarrettEl Juicio (The Judgement) ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Wild and wonderful work by Keith Jarrett – light years away from his records on ECM! The album features a quartet that includes Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums – but it's clearly Keith who's driving the bus here, taking lots of odd twists and turns for playful moments that come as an unexpected surprise. One of the best of these is the short percussion track "Pre Judgement Atmosphere", which almost sounds like a Moondog number – and another is the rollingly funky "Gypsy Moth", a tune that always seems to be careening out of control, but is never "outside", just percussively grooving. Side two features two longer jamming tracks that almost have a loft jazz feel – "El Juicio" and "Piece For Ornette" – and Keith plays alone on the track "Pardon My Rags". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith JarrettFacing You ... LP
ECM, 1972. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A key early moment for Keith Jarrett – his first-ever solo album, recorded in the early 70s for ECM – and the start of a huge legacy of later work! Before this set, Jarrett had recorded some compelling trio material for Atlantic – and he was also exploring more spiritually soulful tones over at Impulse Records too. But this record is something else entirely – a new showcase for his sensitive expressions – the kind of angular, yet poetic lines that sparkled strongly in the trio recordings, yet stand out even more on their own! Tunes are beautifully penned – and titles include "In Front", "Ritooria", "Lalene", "Starbright", "Vapallia", and "Semblence". LP, Vinyl record album

The album features some works for instrumental ensembles – including a String Quartet and a Brass Quartet – plus a large orchestral piece with flute, and some shorter works with instrumental groups – including one with Ralph Towner on guitar, and another with four cellos and a trombone.

✨✧ Keith JarrettShades ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter than Jarrett's excellent Death & The Flower set – as the tunes have a highly rhythmic component, and make good use of the extra percussion to create a flowing, organic groove. There's still a nice loose feel overall, though – almost a take on the loft jazz sound, especially at the moments when Jarrett goes a bit outside on piano. Titles include "Shades Of Jazz", "Southern Smiles", "Rose Petals", and "Diatribe". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettSomewhere Before ... CD
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... $6.99
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, nor is he trying to go out of his way to make the world known of his presence – and instead, he's got a simple, subtle approach to the keys that's filled with tenderness and gentle tones – but not in a way that's hokey or overly sentimental. There's certainly echoes here of 60s work by Steve Kuhn, and of earlier records by Vince Guaraldi – but Jarrett also hints at a bold power underneath that seems likely to break out at every turn. The album's a live recording, with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – and titles include "A Moment For Tears", "Pout's Over", "My Back Pages", "Pretty Ballad", "Moving Soon", "Old Rag", and "Dedicated To You".

Keith Jarrett/Art Ensemble Of ChicagoRestoration Ruin/Bap-Tizum ... CD
Collectables, 1968/1972. Used ... $11.99
For some reason, Collectables chose to mix these albums by 2 different artists on one CD – but at this price, who cares? Restoration Ruin is very nice early work by Keith Jarrett – and very different than his later albums for ECM! This set is pretty hippy-dippy – and has Keith playing a variety of instruments, from piano, to guitar, to soprano sax, organ, and percussion – as well as singing, which he does in kind of a hip, bluesy, jazz-based style. The songs have actual lyrics, not scatting bits, and the feel here is almost folk rock inflected with jazz – which makes for a very interesting mix, and some really great songs that would appeal to those who like the left end of the folk/rock/jazz continuum of the late 60s. Includes the funky "All Right", plus "Restoration Ruin", "Have A Real Time", "Wonders", "You're Fortunate", and "Where Are You Going". Equally great is Bap-Tizum, a nice live session recorded by the Art Ensemble at the legendary Ann Arbor Jazz & Blues Fest. The Art Ensemble's in excellent form, and lay down a stellar performance throughout. The set ranges from driving percussion jams to spare tenor soloing with bass accompaniment. Great stuff, and one of their landmark American recordings. Includes "Unanka", "Immm", and "Odwalla". CD

Keith Jarrett/Dennis Russell DaviesRitual ... LP
ECM, 1977. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The best Keith Jarrett spirit of the 70s – those long, exploratory lines he virtually invented on solo piano – performed here by pianist Dennis Russell Davies! The set's one of the warmest we've ever heard from Davies – as he spins out on two side-long interpretations of this composition by Jarrett – a piece that clearly allows a lot of room for personal introspection, in a way that makes it very much a blending of the two individuals. The work is less freewheeling than some of Keith's long improvisations, but has a very similar spirit – and stands nicely next to those solo piano classics on ECM. The set features one long piece – "Ritual" – over both sides of the record. LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A generous 1971 effort from Keith Jarrett – backed up by his incredible, multi-instrumentalist co-horts Dewey Redman (tenor sax, clarinet, bells, percussion and more), Charlie Haden (bass, congas, clappers, steel drum) and Paul Motion (drums and percussion). The pieces cover a pretty far range of styles – from the meandering and mellow Jarrett piano that begins "Birth", to the wonderful, heaving funky bass work on "Mortgage On My Soul (Wah Wah)" – which also includes some squalling soprano sax by Jarrett, who gives the piano a rest for this wild tune! Later on the album, he picks up a banjo, too! Other tracks include "Spirit", "Forget Your Memories (And They'll Remind You)" and "Remorse". CD

Columbia/Sony, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful album from the young Keith Jarrett – and a set that's different than most of the pianist's other well-known modes – not his solo improvisations, not his successful trio material, and not even his more outside quartet modes of the 70s – but instead this incredible criss-crossing of sounds that really stands apart from most of his other records! The album features Keith on piano and soprano sax – an instrument he played more early on – in open, freewheeling tracks that often mix tuneful passages with more rhythmic pulsations – handled with a core group that includes Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums, working with guitar from Sam Brown, tenor from Dewey Redman, percussion from Airto, and some larger string and brass arrangements too! Jarrett also plays electric piano at times, and the album has some of the lyricism of Treasure Island, but with a very different vibe – spun out beautifully over the space of the double-length set. Titles include "Take Me Back", "Expectations", "Vision", "Common Mama", "The Magician In You", "Sundance", "Nomads", and "Bring Back The Time When". CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettKoln Concert ... LP
ECM, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A genre-defining moment from pianist Keith Jarrett – a record that really set the world on fire, and which continues to charm all these many decades later! Although Jarrett had already made some amazing music in a trio setting during the 60s, and in his more freewheeling groups with Dewey Redman in the early 70s, it's this sort of format that forever put him on the map – long, extended improvised passages on solo piano – played at a level that's still extremely lyrical, tuneful, and thoughtful – quite different than the free jazz waves that were building at the time! And while so many other people copied the style over the years, nobody does it better than Jarrett – especially on this landmark outing for the style. The work is amazing – extremely compelling as little melodies drift in and out of the waves of piano improvisation – without any of the sloppiness of some of Jarrett's imitators, and a surprising sense of soul and direction throughout!

ECM (Germany), 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Magical solo work from pianist Keith Jarrett – a set that's comprised almost entirely of standards, similar to some of the better-known trio recordings in this format by the artist – and which has Jarrett playing in this really evocative way that definitely lives up to the title! The solo performances aren't nearly as open or longform as his other recordings without any other players – melodies are intact throughout – but Keith does really have a way of opening up the songs, and almost making them sound like these very fragile, very personal poems that spin from his fingers on the keys of the piano. Titles include "Don't Ever Leave Me", "I Loves You Porgy", "Blame It On My Youth", "Meditation", "Something To Remember You By", and "I'm Through With Love". CD

ECM, 1985. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
After the success of Jarrett's Standards Trio recording, he revisits the format with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette – the first ever live recordings of this incredible trio in action! Like the studio recordings, this set features roomy, lyrical readings of standards, in a way, reminiscent of classic Bill Evans approaches to similar material – with a relaxed, moody spin on the proceedings. The tried-and-true material is given fresh life by the players, who roll from a looser dynamic with each player having their moments, to some tighter interplay in the heart of the tunes – and the appreciative French audience helping with the mood! 6 numbers: "Stella By Starlight", "The Wrong Blues", "Falling In Love With Love", "To Young To Go Steady", "The Way You Look tonight" and "The Old Country".

✨✧ Keith JarrettBudapest Concert ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2020. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Keith Jarrett in our favorite side of his talents – playing the long, improvised style that first made him a breakthrough artist on ECM in the 70s – and which still remains one of his most important contributions to the history of jazz! Even later years, Jarrett's sense of imagination on the keys is amazing – and here, you'll hear very few echoes of other improvisations – long tracks that show that Keith is always able to create spontaneously, at a level that few others can match – especially as he never goes too far outside, or seems to lose a sense of melody in his music. The work is divided up into shorter passages – the older Jarrett sometimes needs a break on the keys, but never in his cognition – and as with other concert recordings of this type, the encores are older standards – "Answer Me My Love" and "It's A Lonesome Old Town" – but both given a very free, open Keith Jarrett approach!

Sublime solo piano – from that early 70s moment when Keith Jarrett was not only finding a whole new voice for himself, but also creating a whole new format in music! The tracks here are all long, live, solo improvisations – played by Jarrett at a level that's unbridled, but never totally free jazz – full of spirit and imagination, and always with this sense of tunefulness that's maybe even more impressive than if he was playing in a noisier way!

A great little trio session from Keith Jarrett – still in the mode of some of his other ECM work, but almost a bit more back to basics as well! The group here features Gary Peacock on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both working beautifully with Keith in a flurry of colors, tones, and pulsating rhythms – the latter of which really drive along the two-part composition "Flying", which takes up most of the set. The shorter "Prism" completes the record – a number that's a bit more contemplative overall, and which features some of those beautifully rounded tones that were virtually Peacock's trademark at the time.

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
Keith Jarrett's really pushing himself here – playing piano with some of the freewheeling qualities that would make him a huge new talent in the 70s, and also picking up some other instruments as well! Although the set's billed to a trio – Jarrett with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – the overall sound is way more than just your usual piano record, thanks to Keith's use of soprano sax, steel drums, congas, and tape recorder – elements that fill the tunes in alongside his piano, and create some really surprising moments. Some tracks are beautifully warm and personal – the kind of lyrical modes that could have made Jarrett a huge mainstream act, had he ever wanted to be more overtly commercial – and these are balanced nicely with the more experimental numbers, to keep a nice edge in the set. Titles include a nice version of Joni Mitchell's "All I Want", plus originals by Jarrett that include "Standing Outside", "Traces Of You", "Trust", "Interlude No 3", and "Mourning Of A Star". CD

One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". CD

A trio of albums from percussionist Airto – with bonus tracks too! First up is Free – one of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well!

Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". Identity is a soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of the Flora Purim sets from the time – still strongly in a rootsy, earthy sort of vibe – and produced with a very respectful sound by Herbie Hancock. Herbie plays some Arp on the record, and Wayne Shorter brings in some soprano sax too – but the core elements of the album are Airto's range of percussion instruments, keyboards and piano from Egberto Gismonti, drums from Roberto, trombone from Raul DeSouza, and a bit of vocals from Flora. Titles include "Flora On My Mind", "Cafe", "The Magicians", "Tales From Home", "Identity", and "Encounter". Promises Of The Sun is a record that departs nicely from earlier work, yet still keeps all the best elements intact! Airto's percussion work is firmly at the core of the set – giving it a nice acoustic base to work from, while also adding in touches of electric guitar by Toninho Horta, bass by Novelli, and keyboards from Hugo Fattoruso. The groove is a wonderful blend of the acoustic and electric, organic and synthetic – and is often crafted in a majestic vibe that seems to be inspired by the work of Milton Nascimento from the early 70s. Tracks include "Circo Marimbondo", "Zuei", "Candango", "Ruas Do Recife", "Georgiana", and "La De Casa". CD features bonus tracks "Creek (alt version)", "So Tender", and "Jequie". CD

Shoji AketagawaFly Me To The Moon ... CD
Aketa's Disk/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
An indie piano jazz treasure from the Japanese scene of the 70s – originally issued on the Aketa's Disk record, and with a sound that's a bit different than some of the bigger-label piano trio albums of the time! There's a real edge here – a harder sound on Aketagawa's keys than some of his contemporaries, even though things are relatively straight and swinging – as if Shoji knows the farther reaches of the avant spectrum, and manages to fold them into long, open groovers with the help of a trio that features Koichi Yamazaki on bass and Takashi Miyasaka on drums! Shoji also vocalizes a bit behind his piano – not singing, but kind of the energetic sounds that you'd hear from better-known pianists, like Erroll Garner or Keith Jarrett – in a similar tradition of enthusiasm along with their work on the keys. Titles include "Aketa's Blues", "Fly Me To The Moon", "There Is No Greater Love", and "Obachama Ote O Douzo". CD

This quality really seems to bring out a freshness in Burton's vibes, too – an ebullience that's even stronger than usual – and not as concerned with deeper-down sounds as some of his other ECM recordings.

Resonance, 1965. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Rare material from pianist Bob James – and tracks that are a lot different than his funky Fender Rhodes albums of the 70s! The set is the first-ever issued of work recorded at Columbia University in 1965 – and the vibe is a bit like James' album for Mercury Records around the same time – a bit straight at point, but also with some surprising avant moments too – touches that make Bob part of that young generation of new experimental pianists, which would also include Steve Kuhn, Don Friedman, and the young Keith Jarrett! The first half of the set very much lives up to that mode – with a trio that features Larry Rockwell on bass and the great Bob Pozar on drums – on titles that include "Lateef Minor 7th", "Once Upon A Time", "Serenata", and "Variations". The second half is from later in the year, and is maybe more boppish overall – with a trio that features Bill Wood on bass and Omar Clay on drums – on titles that include "Indian Summer", "Solar", "Long Forgotten Blues", and "Airegin".

Charles LloydCharles Lloyd In The Soviet Union ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1967. Used ... $14.99
Charles Lloyd in the Soviet Union – blowing beautifully on an open-ended set that must have really loosened things up in Red Square! The album features Lloyd at his freewheeling 60s best – working in his group with Keith Jarrett on piano, Ron McClure on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – on some of those great long, very open numbers they do so well! Lloyd plays both tenor and flute – both with strongly spiritual tones that work great with the modal touches of the rhythm section – and titles include "Days & Nights Waiting", "Sweet Georgia Bright", "Love Song To A Baby", and "Tribal Dance".

Charles LloydDream Weaver (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. Used ... $11.99
A classic set from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that really pushes forward all the experiments he'd begun in the Chico Hamilton group – and shows a bold move forward for rhythms in 60s jazz! The tracks are long, and spiral out wonderfully – but in ways that are different than those used by other creators of the time – like Eric Dolphy or John Coltrane. Even though leading the group on tenor and flute, Lloyd's got a real sense of rhythm to his playing – echoes of the Hamilton group – but set loose with a stellar quartet of younger players – including Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all perfect choices for inventive music like this! The standout cut is the amazing "Sombrero Sam", a tight little groover that we never tire of – and one that has Jarrett sounding much more in the pocket than you'd ever imagine – and other tracks include "Dream Weaver", "Autumn Sequence", and "Bird Flight".

✨✧ Charles LloydSwiss Radio Days Vol 46 – Montreux Jazz Festival 1967 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
A really fantastic live performance from the Charles Lloyd group of the late 60s – a double-length set that's a wonderful complement to their classic albums on Atlantic Records! The group is great – a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Ron McClure on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – fantastic partners for the freewheeling style of Lloyd on both tenor and flute, as the group work here through modes and melodies that feel years ahead of their time – all spun out on these long, extended performances that are mindblowing throughout! Swiss Radio recorded the material in 1967, and we wonder why it's taken so long to come out – as the whole thing is completely essential, and features long takes on "Love Ship", "Days & Nights Waiting", "Lady Gabor", "Forest Flower", "Love Song To A Baby", and "Sweet Georgia Bright".

Antero SievertUnderscore ... LP
JMI, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99
A beautiful album of slow-building sounds that mostly come from the piano of Antero Sievert – but which is also slightly augmented at points by work on violin, cello, and trombone! Sievert is great enough on solo piano – working with maybe the warmth and sensitivity of a young Keith Jarrett, but in a mode that's not as longform – but what we also appreciate is his wider ear for sound – a quality that has the instrument often sounding as much as a subtle sonic force as it is a solo vehicle, which really takes off on the album's long "Bob James" track – which features Sievert on Fender Rhodes, and also includes some street noise too. Other titles include "Improv 3", "Spanish Lullaby", "Lima", "Spring Flower", "Improv 5", and "Zarathustra". LP, Vinyl record album

Aki TakasePerdido ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $16.99
The album's titled after a jazz standard, but the playing here of Aki Takase is anything but – served up on long, open tracks that aren't entirely free jazz, but which have a very spontaneous sense of creation – on long lines that mix subtle swing with an exploration of the farther boundaries of the piano – yet all without ever sounding too outside at all! The balance is maybe a bit like Keith Jarrett on some of his long improvisations – although Takase is a very different player overall, and even includes a bit of work on Koto on the set. Titles include "Down Dance", "ABC", "After A Year", and "Takedano Komoriuta". CD

Yukako Yamano3rd Stage ... CD
Yukako Yamano (Japan), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99
A beautiful album of solo piano from up-and-coming pianist Yukako Yamano – a set that's got a lot more acoustic depth than you might expect from the keyboard pictured on the cover! Despite the presentation of that instrument, most of the music here is done on a very resonant grand piano – which is perfect for the lyrically flowing style of Yamano's approach to the instrument – a free-flowing style that's often cut loose from rhythm, but still full of melodic possibilities – taking off somewhere from the Keith Jarrett solo tradition, but going into a space that's very much her own! The album features some beautiful solo numbers, and these nicely lyrical unpackings of a few Gershwin tunes too – with titles that include "River Life", "Love Coke", "Summertime/Piano Concerto 2", "Luna", "Before After", and "Savanna".

✨✧ Gary BurtonTurn Of The Century ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very hip material from vibesman Gary Burton – tunes recorded for Atlantic Records in the late 60s and early 70s, a label that allowed Burton a great chance to experiment in a range of different styles! Some tunes are very groovy, even a little bit funky – while others show more of the chromatic approach that Burton would develop even more strongly in later years, still played here with a nice sense of swing amidst the modern tones. Other players include Richard Tee on organ and piano, Steve Swallow on bass, Jerry Hahn and Eric Gale on guitars, Keith Jarrett on piano and electric piano, and Stephane Grappelli on violin – and in addition to vibes, Burton also plays piano, electric piano, and organ. Titles include "Vibrafinger", "Moonchild/In Your Quiet Place", "Coquette", "Throb", "Turn Of The Century", "Henninger Flats", "Hand Bags & Glad Rags", "Las Vegas Tango", "Some Echoes", "Daphne", "Fortune Smiles", and "Chega De Saudade".

✨✧ Chick CoreaNow He Sings – Now He Sobs (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing modern work from the young Chick Corea – a set that captures the pianist in much more avant territory than his famous 70s sets – at a time when he was just coming off some years working in a variety of modes on the New York scene! The group here is as revolutionary as Chick's own work on piano – a trio with Miroslav Vitous on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – generations coming together to really unlock the possibilities of a piano trio, with the same sort of freshness that you'd hear in the earliest work by Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett from the same time. By that, we mean that there's still elements here that tie the approach to older modes – but with a quality that's also instantly Chick's own – especially on the very compelling original material on the set. Titles include "Now He Sings – Now He Sobs", "Steps – What Was", "Matrix", and "The Law Of Falling & Catching Up". Lots of bonus tracks – including "Fragments", "Windows", "Samba Yantra", "I Don't Know", "Gemini", and "Bossa". CD

✨✧ Bob JamesOnce Upon A Time – The Lost 1965 New York Studio Sessions (180 gram pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Resonance, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare material from pianist Bob James – and tracks that are a lot different than his funky Fender Rhodes albums of the 70s! The set is the first-ever issued of work recorded at Columbia University in 1965 – and the vibe is a bit like James' album for Mercury Records around the same time – a bit straight at point, but also with some surprising avant moments too – touches that make Bob part of that young generation of new experimental pianists, which would also include Steve Kuhn, Don Friedman, and the young Keith Jarrett! The first half of the set very much lives up to that mode – with a trio that features Larry Rockwell on bass and the great Bob Pozar on drums – on titles that include "Lateef Minor 7th", "Once Upon A Time", "Serenata", and "Variations". The second half is from later in the year, and is maybe more boppish overall – with a trio that features Bill Wood on bass and Omar Clay on drums – on titles that include "Indian Summer", "Solar", "Long Forgotten Blues", and "Airegin".

✨✧ BenBen ... LP
Vertigo/Trading Places (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The only album ever issued by Ben – one of the more obscure groups from the Canterbury scene, and one of the jazziest too! The group start the set with a tune by Keith Jarrett, then soar through a mostly instrumental batch of tracks – all long, with razor-sharp time changes, and impeccable instrumentation from a lineup that includes Peter Davey on saxes and flute, Alex Macleery on electric piano and moog, Gerry Reid on guitars, Len Surtees on bass, and David Sheen on drums and percussion! Sheen also vocalizes a bit – but the record is really an instrumental set overall, in the best UK rock/jazz fusion of the time – with none of the cliches of more commercial material. Titles include "The Influence", "Gismo", "Christmas Execution", and "Gibbon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art BlakeyButtercorn Lady ... CD
Limelight/Elemental (Spain), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual little record from Art Blakey – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse in 1966, with a band that includes the surprising lineup of Keith Jarrett on piano and Chuck Mangione on trumpet! If you're surprised at the mix of players, and figure that they won't groove with Blakey's soulful approach – don't worry, as Art's still strongly at the helm, and manages to get incredibly tight performances out of both of them – really forging them strongly into a Jazz Messengers groove! The group also features Frank Mitchell on tenor and Reggie Johnson on bass – and Mangione wrote a number of the tracks for the album, including "Buttercorn Lady", a nice funky soul jazz groover, "Recuerdo", with a bit of a Latin feel, and "Between Races", a charger in typical Jazz Messengers style!

✨✧ Gary BurtonNew Quartet ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic 70s album from Gary Burton – a set that definitely has the "new" promised in the title, as it takes off more from some of Gary's work in previous years! The record's got this explosive sense of color that really comes through in Gary's vibes – and in the way the group can leaop into the fray when needed – almost funky at points, but also able to shift into more sensitive modes too – balanced between the guitar of Michael Goodrick,bass of Abraham Laboriel, and drums of Harry Blazer. Burton's got a bit more bite at times than before – pushing even past his Atlantic Records sound and the tunes are a well-chosen array of songs by contemporaries who include Keith Jarrett, Mike Gibbs, Chick Corea, and Carla Bley. Titles include "Open Your Eyes You Can Fly", "Coral", "Tying Up Loose Ends", "Olhos De Gato", and "Mallet Man". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisLive At Berliner Jazztage – November 6, 1971 ... LP
Alternative Fox (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very freewheeling live work from Miles Davis – captured here on a set of long tracks recorded in Berlin at the start of the 70s – all with an open vibe that maybe matches some of his famous concert dates from Japan! The overall sound is maybe a bit more spacious and slightly less noisy – and the group features Gary Bartz on alto, Keith Jarrett on electric piano and organ, Michael Henderson on bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Don Alias and Mtume on percussion! There's no guitar in the group, which has the pulsing keyboards doing most of that work – and Gary Bartz is wonderful on his solos, playing with some of the rhythmic edge of his early 70s work on Milestone, and making a nice contrast to Miles. Titles include "Directions", "What I Say", "Honky Tonk", "Funky Tonk", "It's About That Time", and "Sanctuary". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chick Corea & Gary BurtonIn Concert, Zurich – October 28 1979 ... CD
ECM, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best ECM teams of the 70s – working here together in a wonderful live set! Chick Corea's got this wonderful flow on his piano – almost a quality that's more like the most unbridled Keith Jarrett work for ECM – bursting out with light and color at each new turn, but in a way that makes it feel like Chick's just discovering each sound as it comes to his fingertips! This quality really seems to bring out a freshness in Burton's vibes, too – an ebullience that's even stronger than usual – and not as concerned with deeper-down sounds as some of his other ECM recordings. The whole thing's great – with lots of original tunes by Chick – and titles include "Song To Gayle", "Mirror Mirror", "Crystal Silence", "Bud Powell", and "Senor Mouse". CD

✨✧ Ariel KalmaNuits Blanches Au Studio 116 ... LP
Transversales Disques (France), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully minimalist work from Ariel Kalma – work that seems to move effortlessly between acoustic and electronic sources, often in ways that feel like the latter is manipulating the former! One piece here feels as if soprano sax lines were folded back on themselves – maybe in a looser style of the Steve Reich or Terry Riley phase progressions – while other moments are more abstract and atmospheric, in keeping with the GRM studios in which all the work was recorded! One long track has surprisingly beautiful acoustic piano – forging a loose, probably improvised line – ala Keith Jarrett, but more open – and although there's a bit of voice at one point, most of the record is instrumental. Titles include "Japanese Dream", "Ballad Sur Le Lac", "Paris Flight", "Voyage Au Centre De La Tete", and "Le Soleil Au Couchant". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Takeshi ShibuyaShibuyan ... CD

Fantastic solo piano from Takeshi Shibuya – a player who seems to bridge the older world of jazz piano lyricism with some of the freer flows of the Keith Jarrett generation – all while coming up with a style that's very much his own! The album's a mix of originals and standards, and Takeshi always seems to have this special flow on the keys – a mode that partly echoes the Japanese trio groups of the 70s, but which is often a bit looser and more introspective – in part, of course, because there's no bass or drums on the record at all. His ear for an unusual phrase is really great – and titles include "Runagirio", "Estrellita", "Old Folks", "Misterioso", "Gipsy Love Song", and "Tarirari Blues". CD
