SF Jazz, 2017. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $24.99 35.00
A great showcase for the endless talents of the San Francisco Jazz Collective – as the set features some stunning original material, balanced with classics from Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, and Stevie Wonder – all served up here in a beautiful extended performance! As always, the group are really brilliant with color – with this special quality that really sets them apart from so many other all-star groups, and which always seems to give their performances such a strongly unified vibe. Players include David Sanchez on tenor, Miguel Zenon on alto, Warren Wolf on vibes, Robin Eubanks on trombone, Sean Jones on trumpet, Edward Simon on piano, Matt Penman on bass, and Obed Calvaire on drums – and titles include the originals "Off Kilter", "Perseverance", "Tune For June", "Tidal Flow", "Venezuela Unida", and "Give The Drummer Some" – plus versions of "Creepin", "When Will The Blues Leave", "School Work", "Una Muy Bonita", "Reflections", "Criss Cross", and "Sir Duke".

✨✧ Bobbi HumphreyBlacks & Blues ... LP
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
The greatest moment ever from the legendary Bobbi Humphrey – a funky, soulful flute player who had more than her share of great moments over the years! This set may well be the summation of all the genius that Humphrey had to offer – a collaboration with genius producer Larry Mizell, at a level that matches is Blue Note classics with Donald Byrd, or the Music Is My Sanctuary album with Gary Bartz – a groundbreaking blend of jazz instrumentation and studio technique! The sound is never smooth, nor commercial – and instead, Bobbie's flute and vocals soar out majestically on these long tracks with building keyboard lines, subtle chorus parts, and touches of bass that really transform the rhythms past conventional soul fusion of the period. Every track is a winner – purely fantastic stuff – and classics include "Chicago Damn", "Jasper Country Man", and the genius "Harlem River Drive". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole, some wear and aging, and light stains.)

✨✧ SF Jazz CollectiveLive At The SF Jazz Center 2016 – The Music Of Miles Davis & Original Compositions ... CD
SF Jazz, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Miles Davis is on the cover, but the record is definitely in the best spirit of the SF Jazz Collective – a group who are very open about their inspirations, but always take the music in very different, personal directions too! The set begins with a range of Miles Davis classics from a few generations, then moves into equally great original material from the group – presented in a way that maybe even acts as a blue print for what they were doing to the music of Miles! As usual, arrangements are all original, by members of the group – which includes work by Warren Wolf on vibes, David Sanchez on tenor, Sean Jones on trumpet, Miguel Zenon on alto, Robin Eubanks on trombone, and Edward Simon on bass – on titles that include "Nardis", "Tutu", "All Blues", "Teo", "Joshua", and "Bitches Brew" – plus "Tribe", "Canto", "Feel The Groove", "Hutcherson Hug", and "Shields Green".

Weldon IrvineLiberated Brother (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Nodlew/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
Landmark early work from the legendary Weldon Irvine – recorded way back when he was first coming to fame with Nina Simone, but done as an obscure indie effort for his tiny Nodlew label! The set's a wicked batch of keyboard-heavy funk – at a level that's similar to some of the best titles on Black Jazz or Strata East at the time, but also filled with an even richer array of colors and musical ideas. Weldon's work on electric piano is worth the price of admission alone – often spare, spacious, and perfectly placed – especially on the funky classics "Homey", "Mr Clean", and "Sister Sanctified" – a tune later cut by Stanley Turrentine, but heard here in Weldon's original version! Other cuts include "Gloria", "Juggah Buggah", "Blues Wel-Don", and "Liberated Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles MingusMingus At Carnegie Hall (180 gram 3LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Atlantic/Rhino, 1974. New Copy 3LP ... On July 16, 2021
❔
Charles Mingus at Carnegie Hall – but playing here with relaxed and intimate feel that's not what you might expect from the staid setting! The original album features two long tracks – both done in more of a jam session mode than any other Charles Mingus recordings we can think of. Both numbers are Ellington classics – "C Jam Blues" and "Perdido" – showcasing Mingus' late fascination with the Duke, but in a way that still preserves all of the modern inventions of his own earlier work. As on much of the best Mingus albums from the time, there's a real focus on the strengths of the soloists here – players who include Roland Kirk on tenor and stritch, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Jon Faddis on trumpet, John Handy on alto and tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, and Don Pullen on piano – all of whom really play with some sharp edges and bold notes! This great expanded version features more very long tracks – over 70 minutes of unreleased music, with versions of "Celia", "Big Alice", "Fables Of Faubus", and "Peggy's Blue Skylight" – as well as Mingus' introduction of the music.

Hank ThompsonSix Pack To Go ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Very Good ... $9.99
A great big barrel of beer drinkin' honky tonk classics from Hank Thompson – one of the flagship honky tonk albums of the 60s! This is Texas swing-modeled, no BS honky tonk – no silly string arrangements or Jordanaires backing vocals in the mix. It's the antidote for all that countrypolitan stuff that was the main claptrap of the time! The great Merle Travis is on guitar for most of the record, too. Essential! Tracks include "Six Pack To Go", "Honky Tonk Town", "Hangover Heart", "Drunkard's Blues", "Bubbles In My Beer", "The Wild Side Of Life", "Warm Red Wine" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original rainbow label pressing. Cover has split seams held with duct tape, a center split on the spine, and some surface wear.)

✨✧ Gary BartzHarlem Bush Music – Uhuru ... LP
Milestone, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential record from Gary Bartz – one of two albums he cut with Andy Bey, and the killer group he was calling his NTU Troup! Andy's vocals are incredible – light years ahead of anything he did with his sisters, and similar to those he laid down on his own solo album for Atlantic, and on Blue Note sides with Horace Silver – a righteous mix of jazz and soul, with a burning intensity that makes the political themes of the tracks come out strongly. The album includes one of Andy's all time classics – the original 7 minute version of "Celestial Blues", plus the fantastically grooving "Uhuru Sasa" – as well as the cuts "The Planets", and "Blue (A Folk Tale)". And Gary Bartz is pretty great too – dropping in these angular reed lines that really give the record an edge, and which sound totally great next to Bey's vocals! LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has ring and edge wear, split seams, and some aging.)

✨✧ John PrinePink Cadillac ... LP
Asylum, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
John Prine's got a slightly more stylish look on the cover here, and the record's got a slightly more stylish sound as well – production by Knox and Jerry Phillips (sons of Sun Records' Sam Phillips) – who set up Prine's amazing vocals and songs with a bit of a Tennessee vibe – not really country rock, as the album's very much John's own – but a slightly different feel than his previous work. There's also a slight touch of the Sun Records history here – guitar from Billy Lee Riley on one cut, and a few tunes that aren't Prine's own – but the whole thing still comes together at a level that's right up there with his best 70s classics. Tracks include "Chinatown", "Automobile", "Killing The Blues", "Saigon", "Cold War", "Side Of The Road", "How Lucky", and a remake of "Ubangi Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing with SRC stamp. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a lightly bent corner.)

✨✧ Mal WaldronTouch Of The Blues ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
There's maybe a touch of the blues here – but the results, as usual for Mal Waldron, are completely different overall – which makes for a really magical moment from a time that was a real creative high point in Waldron's career! All tracks are long originals by Mal – played with a trio that features Allen Blairman on drums and Jimmy Woode on some especially strong bass – very different than most of his other work of the time, and really colored by the moodier colors of the Waldron palette – often played with a pointed, succinct quality that even beats his contributions to the Clarke Boland Big Band. The music leans outside, but is never as totally free as some of Waldron's more improvised recordings – and titles include the 17 minute "A Touch Of The Blues", plus "The Search" and "Here There & Everywhere".

Sunny Murray13 Steps On Glass ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1994. New Copy ... $9.99
A really surprising later album from free jazz legend Sunny Murray – a set of shorter tracks, definitely with more structure – but which still very much have that strong voice that Murray developed during the ESP years of the 60s! Things aren't ever too free or far outside, but always have an edge – and the group is an interesting one, a trio with Odeon Pope on tenor and the great Wayne Dockery on bass – the latter a very overlooked player, and one who can really adapt to a setting like this, forming a key bridge between the others. Some titles are originals, some are standards given a really special spin – and titles include "Out For A Walk", "Lover", "Emoi", "Blues For PC", "Constant Blue", and "Well You Needn't". CD

✨✧ Aki TakaseClapping Music ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pianist Aki Takase has a great trio here – the legendary Reggie Workman on bass and Sunny Murray on drums – two players who can really dominate on their own, but who here work very strongly alongside Takase's lead! Aki's piano lines are bold and freewheeling – but also have a nice sense of space and timing – such that there's all these odd angles and unusual rhythmic progressions, which are only further emphasized by the work of Murray and Workman! The set includes the originals "Shima Shoka" and "Clapping Music", plus killer takes on the Mingus tunes "Boogie Stop Shuffle" and "Pussycat Blues" – and a version of the Schlippenbach track "Point". CD
