✨✧ Mike GibbsRevisiting Tanglewood 63 – The Early Tapes ... CD
Jazz In Britain (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99 22.98
A great precursor to the legendary album Tanglewood 63 – one of the touchstones of British jazz at the start of the 70s, and a masterpiece from trombonist/arranger Mike Gibbs! The tracks here are live studio takes on some of the tunes that appeared on the set, plus other material too – all crafted with Gibbs' stunning sense of color and tone, as he brings together free-thinking acoustic jazz musicians with a few slight electric touches from Chris Spedding on guitar, Mick Pyne on organ, and Roy Babbington on organ – players who really help state the fact that the music is new and different, but never in a more familiar jazz-rock way! The horn players are excellent too – and in addition to Gibbs on trombone, the set features work from Henry Lowther and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Chris Pyne and Malcolm Griffiths on trombones, and Alan Skidmore, Stan Sulzman, Tony Roberts, and Jim Phillip on reeds. Drums are by John Marshall on most tracks, and Frank Ricotti adds in a lot of cool percussion – including some mighty nice vibes – on titles that include "Canticle", "Country Roads", "Sojurn", "Five For England", "Fanfare", "June The 15th 1967", and "Tanglewood 63".

London Jazz Composers OrchestraThat Time ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 1972/1980. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Very rare work from this legendary improvising orchestra – two different recordings from the first decade or so of the group's existence, at a time when they were hardly making any records at all! The first two long tracks are from a 1972 performances in Germany – and feature an early version of the group conducted by Buxton Orr, but with leader Barry Guy in strong formation – in a very large lineup that includes saxes from Evan Parker, Mike Osborne, Trevor Watts, and Alan Wakeman; trumpets from Kenny Wheeler, Harry Beckett, Mark Charig, and Dave Holdsworth; trombones from Paul Rutherford, Mike Gibbs, and Paul Nieman; guitar from Derek Bailey; piano from Howard Riley; percussion and drums from Paul Lytton and Tony Oxley; and more bass from Jeff Clyne and Chris Laurence. The players' ability to move in ways that are both cohesive and individual is breathtaking – on the long selections "Watts Parker Beckett To Me Mr Riley" and "Statements III". Next are two more tracks recorded in London in 1980 – one live, one studio – with some of the same players, but also the addition of Peter Brotzmann and Tony Coe on saxes, Philipp Wachsmann on violin, and John Stevens on percussion – on the tracks "Quasimode III" and "Appolysian".

Mahavishnu OrchestraApocalypse ... LP
Columbia, 1974. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A big change of sorts for Mahavishnu Orchestra – a record that has the group actually acting like the larger ensemble promised in their name! Although their first few efforts were smaller combo affairs, this set has the group completely transformed – with only John McLaughlin's guitar remaining from the original lineup – joined by a host of other jazz and orchestra players – including Jean-Luc Ponty on electric violin, bringing in a much more spacey sound than before, and Narada Michael Walden on drums, percussion, and a bit of vocals. The sound's often less jamming than the power-fusion of the group's start – and much more in the meditative space you'd guess from their name – although still with a good degree of jazz influences as well. Mike Gibbs did the orchestrations, and Michael Tilson Thomas conducts – and titles include "Power Of Love", "Hymn To Him", "Wings Of Karma", and "Smile Of The Beyond". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jazz OrchestraLe Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe ... LP
Verve/Universal (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $52.99 About September 15, 2021 (delayed)
A wonderful wonderful set from the British jazz scene of the late 60s – beautifully inventive large ensemble material, done under the direction of Neil Ardley – and featuring some of the best British jazz musicians of the time! The group's a showcase not only for creative young talent in the UK, but also for the growing sense of composition as well – and the music on the set is penned by Ardley, Michael Garrick, Mike Taylor, and Michael Gibbs – as well as new arrangements of work by Miles Davis and John Coltrane. As in the best material from Ardley, Garrick, and Gibbs, there's a really fresh way of coming together for the instrumentation – quite different than large group material in both the US, and even other areas of the 60s European scene – delivered with wonderful imagination by musicians who include Derek Watkins, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, and Ian Carr on trumpets; Michael Gibbs and Derek Wadsworth on trombones; Barbara Thompson on flute and soprano sax; Dick Heckstall Smith on tenor and soprano; Frank Ricotti on vibes; and even Jack Bruce on bass! Titles include "Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe", "Naima", "Angle", "Ballad", "Dusk Fire", "Study", and "Rebirth". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan TraceyWisdom In The Wings (Free An One/Seven Ages Of Man) ... CD
Lansdowne/Resteamed (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 24.99
Two incredible albums from British pianist Stan Tracey – originally part of the Lansdowne series in the UK! Free An One has a cockney sort of title, but a very modern jazz vibe – one that shows just how much Stan Tracey had grown over the course of the 60s – as the vision here is a huge extension past the Monk/Herbie Nichols sound of his early days – with a strong ear for modal elements in the rhythms at times, mixed with surprisingly sensitive moments that balance things out tremendously! The "One" in the title is alto saxophonist Peter King, who's completely on fire on the record – playing with an edge that makes his performance here one of his greatest moments on record – alongside Stan on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Bryan Spring on drums. Titles include "Free An One", "Nudgy Vamp", "The Green Kingspring Of King Springreen", and "Rainbow At The Five Mile Road". Seven Ages Of Man is an incredible large group performance – led by pianist Stan Tracey, who is really coming into his own both as a composer and a larger jazz visionary – maybe even more important to the British modernist ideal of the late 60s as his earlier contributions were in the 50s! Stan's not just a hell of a pianist, but his overall sense of tone, timing, and color here is amazing – as he moves with a larger group that includes Mike Gibbs and Chris Pyne on trombones, Peter King on alto, Tony Coe on clarinet and tenor, Alan Skidmore on tenor, Ronnie Ross on baritone, Derek Watkins and Tony Fisher on trumpets, and Frank Ricotti on vibes – all tremendous players who effortlessly realize Tracey's ideas on the set. All titles are originals, and titles include "Matinee Days", "Overture & Beginners", "Kindly Leave The Stage", "Wisdom In Th Wings", and "Panto Panta". CD

✨✧ Art WebbLove Eyes ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funky flute from Art Webb – an overlooked 70s jazz player who's probably best known for his Latin fusion work, but who really shines here in a more soul-based setting! This set shows Art working strongly in a mode that references that part of his career, yet also has him stepping into more of the mainstream of funky jazz, too – working with the rhythm section of John Lee and Gerry Brown, plus guitarists Reggie Lucas and Hiram Bullock, and keyboardists Mike Mandel and Hubert Eaves – both of whom make the record sparkle with a soulful fusion sound that's totally great! Arrangements are by Mike Gibbs and John Lee, and overall the album's got a very solid soulful sound. Titles include "Flute Magic", "Can't Hide Love", "Pyramids", "Love Eyes", "Free", and "Glass Dreams". CD

✨✧ VariousJourneys In Modern Jazz – Great Britain 1965 to 1972 ... CD
Universal (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous tribute to a fantastic moment in jazz – the explosion of new sounds that happened in the British scene from the late 60s onward – a moment of music that barely touched our shores, but which was equally important to the changes taking place in modern jazz in the US! England got on the jazz bandwagon pretty quickly in earlier years – but for decades, most of their music was pretty tied to American styles – ties that broke strongly with work like this – which opened up all these new rhythms, patterns, and possibilities for expression – at a level that the British scene maybe never hit this strongly again! The collection features some incredibly well-chosen tracks that really illustrate the depth of this musical moment – including work from the legendary Landsdowne Series of recordings, and tracks from other labels too – all brought together with detailed notes that really illuminate the music. Titles include "Old San Juan" by Alan Skidmore, "Third Road" by Harry Beckett, "Matinee Days" by Stan Tracey, "Second Coming" by Michael Garrick, "Storm Warning" by Dick Morrissey, "To Segovia" by Mike Taylor, "A Matter Of Time" by Don Rendell, "Brew" by Colin Bates, "With Terry's Help" by John Surman & John Warren, "Waltz" by Mike Westbrook, Greek Variations/VI Kriti (edit)" by Neil Ardley, "Angle" by New Jazz Orchestra, "Don The Dreamer" by Kenny Wheeler & John Dankworth, and "Some Echoes Some Shadows" by Michael Gibbs.
