AirOpen Air Suit ... LP
Arista/Novus, 1978. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Classic AACM material from Chicago, strangely issued on Arista, but produced by Michael Cuscuna with all the care of a small-label session. The classic lineup of Henry Threadgill, Fred Hopkins, and Steve McCall is firmly in place – and they band interacts with a sense of humor and imagination that rivals the Art Ensemble of Chicago for sheer genius. Titles include "Cosmic Ass", "Open Air Strut", and "Strait White Royal Flush". LP, Vinyl record album

Ran BlakeFilm Noir ... LP
Arista/Novus, 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the most evocative albums we've ever heard from pianist Ran Blake – a set that's got all the sharp edges of some of his most adventurous solo work, but one that also has Ran working in a few different settings, often with a very poetic feel! The set's not a hokey retro-crime record – as you might fear from the title (and countless later jazz albums that evoke that aesthetic) – and although Blake's working through melodies from older films, plus a few original numbers in the same spirit, his presentation is completely unique – and explosively personal throughout! His own piano is tremendous – blocks of sound and runs of notes that are extremely imaginative, and which flow forward from the same dark spirit we love on Blake's other recordings. And they're often balanced with shifting contributions from other musicians – players who include John Heiss on flute, Paul Meyers on bass, Ted Curson on trumpet, and Daryl Lowrey on alto and soprano sax – all of whom make some great additions to the set. Titles include a nice take on "The Pawnbroker" – plus other film titles that include "Eve", "Touch Of Evil", "Le Boucher", "Pinky", and "Doktor Mabuse" – as well as Blake originals "Spiral Staircase" and "Garden Of Delight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, light wear, and a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Larry CoryellEuropean Impressions ... LP
Novus, 1978. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Larry Coryell began his career as a fuzzy fusion monster – often leaning into rock with both his sound and his solos – but over the 70s, he also really developed his talents as an acoustic artist – which come into beautiful focus here on a set of mostly solo recordings! Larry almost seems to channel previous acoustic giants – like Baden Powell or Paco DeLucia – but all while making a sound that's completely his own – quite rhythmic in its pulse, with some very hard action on the strings – but also with a level of sensitivity that you never would have heard in his music a decade before! The album's got a fantastic blending of the Horace Silver tunes "Song For My Father" and "Sister Sadie" – and other tracks include "Toronto Under The Sign Of Capricorn", "April Seventh", "Copenhagen Impressions", and "For Phillip & Django". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, a promo sticker, and light wear.)

Henry ThreadgillEasily Slip Into Another World ... LP
Novus/BMG, 1988. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A nice little set from Henry Threadgill – one of the albums that gave him greatest exposure to a bigger audience, and a set that pushes the sound of his work nicely! The record's got some of those touches from a time when the AACM was reaching out with its sound from earlier years – a mode that's not exactly more inside, but certainly more overtly expressive about its intentions, and sometimes a bit more melodically focused than freely improvisatory. There's echoes here of work the Art Ensemble and Amina Claudine Myers were doing during the same stretch – and the lack of commercial success of the record shouldn't indicate any aesthetic failure at all. Asha Pulthi makes a surprising vocal appearance on the track "My Rock", and other players include Frank Lacy, Diedre Murray, Fred Hopkins, Pheeroan Aklaff, and Reggie Nicholson. Titles include "Award The Squadtett", "Hall", "Spotted Duck Is Pudding", and "I Can't Wait Till I Get Home". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Amina Claudine MyersAmina ... LP
Novus/BMG, 1988. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty interesting change for this lovely lady of the AACM – as Amina Claudine Myers makes a shift towards more R&B-inflected jazz, working in equal parts vocals and piano with more electric instrumentation than you'd hear on some of her earlier albums. Although the move was kind of panned by some of Myers' more stalwart fans in the avant garde, years later the record actually sounds pretty great to our ears – kind of an 80s version of the sound that Patrice Rushen was trying for in hear earlier years at Prestige – soulful jazz mixed with a bit of vocals, and handled with touches that might make the work reach a wider audience. Some of the tracks sound a bit weak due to bad 80s keyboard work, but others sparkle with a warmth and soulfulness we hadn't noticed before. Titles include "BI", "Song From The West", "Happiness", "Keep On Loving", "Nolan", and "Nisamehe". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Muhal Richard AbramsSpiral – Live At Montreux 1978 ... LP
Novus/Arista, 1978. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Muhal – with all the soulful spiritualness of his best 70s work, more stripped down than later orchestrated efforts, and with a gentler more intimate approach than earlier work. The set is mostly solo piano – although Abrams also plays some occasional percussion – and features some wonderfully introspective playing, as free as that of Cecil Taylor or other 70s avant contemporaries, but always rhythmic, and never losing a sense of soul and meaning. Titles include "D Song", "String Song", and "Voice Song" – all long. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker, cut corner, and is bent at the bottom right corner.)
