Paul HornHere's That Rainy Day ... LP
RCA, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A sweet and mellow set from flutist Paul Horn – with a sad, sleepy, and wonderfully late nite feel! Ralph Carmichael arranged and conducted the set – and most of the tracks feature the Ralph Carmichael Singers in the background, singing in a really moody style that adds a nice edge to the tunes. The record's the kind we might have passed up years ago, thinking it a snoozer – but we love it's dark tension, and really appreciate some of the additional instrumental touches, like vibes by Lynn Blessing, piano by Mike Lang, and bass by Bill Plummer. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Moment To Moment", "Ecstasy", "Laura", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove, 1s/1s stampers! A nice copy.)

Paul HornPaul Horn & Nexus ... LP
CBS, 1975. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Some of the best Paul Horn recordings of the 70s – tracks that were recorded amidst the Brazilian fusion explosion of the 70s, and which really push Horn's sound to the limit! The album features work that Horn cut with the funky fusion group Nexus – very electrified tracks driven on by some heavy percussion work that clearly comes out of the Brazilian tradition spread to the US by Airto – jazzy, frenetic, and with a good mix of electric and organic elements! Titles include "Somba", "Crystals", "Freindship", "Nexus", "Mbira", "Capetown", and "African Funeral Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best Paul Horn recordings of the 70s – tracks that were recorded amidst the Brazilian fusion explosion of the 70s, and which really push Horn's sound to the limit! The album features work composed by Egberto Gismonti, played by Horn, Gismonti, Dom Salvador, and Dom Um Romao with a breezy Brazilian jazz finish! The sound's a great extension of the genius that Gismonti had at the time, and takes his music into a slightly more American mode – with titles that include "Danca Das Cabecas", "Carmo", "Altura Do Sol", "Quarup", "Tango", and the great "Salvador".

✨✧ Paul HornVisions ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nice fusiony jazz done with soul and airy atmophere by Paul Horn – including some choice covers, and sounds that range from fusiony jazz with a little bit of funk and more lilting numbers lifted by flute and wordless vocals! Horn has a tendency to go head first into a more new agey vibe, but here we get a more grounded approach with more soul and bits of funk in the bass, keys & percussion. The players include Larry Carlton, Joe Sample and Tom Scott. Includes a nice takes on a trio of Stevie Wonder numbers: "Too High", "Visions" and "Living For The City", Joni Mitchell's "Blue" and "Chelsea Morning" (the former featuring some vocals and keyboards by Joni), plus "High Tide"., "Long Time Gone", "Song With No Words" and "Dida".

Paul SmithDelicate Jazz ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Lovely music from pianist Paul Smith – working here on one of his most standout sessions of the 50s, thanks to the presence of horn players Bob Cooper on tenor and Julie Kinsler on flute! The style is still very much in the same fluid area as Paul's Liquid Sounds work for Capitol – but the addition of the tenor and flute really fleshes things out nicely, and gives the record a sparkling sound that's mighty nice – almost more 60s swinging in its conception at times, especially given the guitar work by Toni Rizzi! In addition to Smith's piano, the group also features bass by Joe Mondragon and drums by Stan Levey – and titles include "Chicken Wings", "Gisele", "Cookie Time", "But Not For Me", "Fine & Dandy", "Lady In Red", and "Love Walked In".

Eddie CostaEddie Costa Quintet (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mode/Muzak (Japan), 1957. Used ... $28.99
An extremely great album from Eddie Costa – one of the best of the all-great Mode sessions from 1957! In what is an odd meeting of players, especially for the label, Eddie's piano and vibes meet up with Art Farmer's trumpet, the alto of Phil Woods, bass of Teddy Kotick, and drums of Paul Motian – all of whom work together with the fluidity and soulfulness of some of the best Prestige sessions of the time. The horn work is tremendous – and it's hard to remember Woods sounding this great on other albums of the time, really cutting an edge next to Farmer's trumpet – which also has an incredible tone for the album, right up there with his Farmer's Market record! Titles include "Big Ben", "Blues Plus Eight", "Stretch In F", and "Get Out Of The Road". CD

Miles Davis with John Coltrane & Sonny StittIn Stockholm 1960 Complete (4CD set) ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1960. New Copy 4CD ... $28.99 29.99
The complete recordings of a legendary live cycle of shows in Stockholm from 1960 – material that was previously issued on two different 2LP sets during the album era, now brought together here with bonus tracks too! The first third of the set features incredible work from the team of Miles Davis and John Coltrane – working together in space that's very open, and far more exploratory than their studio work of the late 50s – maybe at a level that really shows the impact that Coltrane's growth was having on the solo approach of Davis! The key rhythm trio keeps things swinging – Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – which almost seems to allow the horn players even more freedom. The second two thirds of the set are equally striking, but in a very different way – as they feature the great Sonny Stitt, blowing both alto and tenor with Miles' group – a choice that's maybe a bit surprising, but equally wonderful too – a Stitt brings the sound maybe back to a bop core, but also seems to really get a chance to show off some of those modern currents that he had to soft-pedal on his albums for Roost. Titles with Coltrane include "So What", "On Green Dolphin Street", "All Blues/Theme", "Walkin/Theme", and "Fran Dance" – and titles with Stitt include "Autumn Leaves/Theme", "Walkin", "All Of You", "June Night", "Stardust", "Lover Man", "If I Were A Bell", "No Blues/Theme", "Softly As In A Mornin Sunrise", and "So What".

✨✧ Duke EllingtonGreat Paris Concert ... LP
Atlantic, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Did Ellington ever record in concert and it not be great? This wonderful double-length set from the 60s is key proof of his genius in an unfettered live setting – recorded in Paris in 1963 with plenty of dark edges! The tracks are short overall, but Duke's really at the head of the group on piano – playing with those angular, modern tones he picked up in the post Money Jungle years – and clearly in charge of the group from the keyboard, not the podium. Horn players include Harry Carney, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Cootie Williams, Johnny Hodges, and Paul Gonsalves – all bringing in some special tones and unique performances to an extended set list that includes both Ellington standards and a few lesser-known numbers. Titles include "Rockin In Rhythm", "Concerto For Cootie", "Suite Thursday", "Tone Parallel To Harlem", "Bula", "Cop Out", "Happy Go Lucky Local", "Theme From Asphalt Jungle", and "Star-Crossed Lovers".

Eddie HigginsEddie Higgins ... LP
Vee Jay, 1961. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Early genius from Eddie Higgins – a pianist who was a big thing on the Chicago scene of the 60s, but is probably best known to most folks for his revival records of the past decade or two! The younger Higgins has more of an edge than the later one – and this self-titled debut is a cooker of a hardbop album – thanks not only to work from Eddie's core trio, but also some great horn interplay from Frank Foster on tenor and Paul Seranno on trumpet! Eddie wrote some of the best cuts on the record – some really fresh numbers – and he gets rhythmic help from either Richard Evans or Jim Atlas on bass, and Marshall Thompson on drums. Higgins titles include "Foot's Bag", "Zarac The Evil One", and "AB's Blues" – and the album also features versions of "Blues For Big Scotia" and "Falling In Love With Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo rainbow label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that makes a short click during "Zarac, The Evil One", but the rest is great. Cover has light wear, but is nice overall.)

Beautiful live work from Oregon – a concert performance that somehow seems to provide an even more beautiful than usual setting for their special combination of talents! The group's flow is fantastic throughout – mixing the percussive elements of Collin Walcott on sitar, tablas, and percussion with reed work from Paul McCandless on a variety of horns, the bass and violin of Glen Moore, and the magical guitar skills of Ralph Towner – who also plays a few other instruments as well. Titles include "Become Seem Appear", "Undertow", "Summer Solstice", "Tryton's Horn", and "The Silence Of A Candle". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art PepperArt Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used ... $7.99
One of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential East meets West jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for the first and only time (it's said that Art didn't even know of the date until the morning of the session). Pepper is one of the few alto players to really establish his own voice on the horn, without aping Bird, and his emotive playing really shines here. A definitive version of "Straight Life" is on this album, along with "Waltz Me Blues", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "Star Eyes". CD

Lalo SchifrinGone With The Wave – Modern Sounds Go Surfing ... LP
Colpix, 1965. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Not a surf record – but a wonderful batch of groovy groovy jazz! Lalo penned this score for a Bruce Brown-like surfing documentary in the mid 60s – but instead of the usual guitar riffing and bongo drumming on such a score, he used a lot of jagged jazzy lines – working in a bit of light bossa, some heavier Latin rhythms, and plenty of cool instrumentation! The players alone make the set worth having – especially the percussion from Milt Holland, Francisco Aguabella, and Shelly Manne – as well as the light guitar touches from Howard Roberts, Bob Bain, and Laurindo Almeida. Paul Horn plays some great alto sax and flute on the set, Victor Feldman's on piano, and Frank Rosolino's on trombone – and Lalo changes up the instrumentation from track to track to really keep the overall feel of the set incredibly fresh! Titles include "Breaks", "Gone With The Wave", "Taco Taquito", "Halieva Blues", "A Taste Of Bamboo", "Aqua Blues", "Surf Waltz", and "Breaks Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom ScottDesire/Target ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1982/1983. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Sweet sax from the great Tom Scott – two early 80s Columbia albums in a single package! Desire is proof that Scott could still make an electric jazz album sound more soulful than most of his mainstream contemporaries! There's a really great sense of balance here – production that's certainly polished, but instrumentation that's never sleepy at all – those always-sharp reeds we love from Tom, especially on alto and soprano sax – plus some great keyboard work from Victor Feldman, who has a similar sense of space and timing ot match Scott's groove! The set's got a feel that's a bit like some of the few really great albums from Dave Grusin – and some cuts have vocals, although mostly of the backup type. Titles include "Desire", "Sure Enough", "The Only One", "Stride", "Chunk O Funk", and "Meet Somebody". Target features a wide range of styles from saxophonist Tom Scott – some tracks that are in the funkier fusion he scored with in the 70s, but others that have some soul and pop touches as well! Scott's horn is still nice and sharp when he gets to step out in the solo spotlight – more so on the instrumental tracks, but a bit less so on the vocal ones – which feature singers who include Maria Muldaur, Kenny James, and Lee Ving. Other players include Harvey Mason on drums, Ernie Watts on tenor and alto, Victor Feldman on keyboards, and Paul Jackson on guitar – and titles include "Burundi Bump", "The Biggest Part Of Me", "He's Too Young", "Aerobia", "Target", and "Come Back To Me".

A really hard-edged set from trumpeter Louis Smith – one of his only two albums as a leader from the early years, and a heck of a great little album, thanks to tenor work by Charlie Rouse! Rouse is blowing beautifully here in one of his classic pre-Monk appearances – recorded at a time when he was more of a hard bopper than a modernist, but still working with an ear for unusual tones and phrasing. His horn sounds beautiful next to the deeply soulful trumpet of Smith – and the pair are supported by a rhythm team that includes Sonny Clark on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Titles include "Smithville", "Embraceable You", "Wetu", and "Later" – all done in nice long versions! CD

Cal TjaderCal Tjader Plays The Contemporary Music Of Mexico & Brazil ... CD
Verve, 1962. Used ... $6.99
A groovy 60s session from vibist Cal Tjader – and an excellent little Latin set, with a mixture of bossa nova and Latin jazz that goes way beyond the promise of the title! The great Clare Fischer arranged the set – and if you know his work with Cal, you know that he's got a wonderful approach to jazz that works perfectly with Tjader's unique phrasing – a spacious sensibility, and a great sense of timing – one that always ensures the tunes sparkle with a sweetly stepping groove. Fischer plays piano on the record – and other players include Laurindo Almeida on guitar, Paul Horn on reeds, Johnny Rae on timbales, and Milt Holland on percussion. Titles include "Choro E Batuque", "Nao Diga Nada", "Elizete", "Imagen", "Vai Querer", and "Que Tristeza". CD

The crashing waves of the Pacific coast hardly seem like the serene setting you might want for the vibes of Cal Tjader – but this album works surprisingly well, and offers up Cal's combo in a Monterey live date, before the jazz festival really got going strong! The group's one that matches his best early albums for Fantasy – piano from Lonnie Hewitt, soulful bass from Al McKibbon, and some great Latin percussion from Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo! Paul Horn also joins the group on flute – blowing with lyrical lines that fit the sound wonderfully, adding a whole new dimension to the music. Many tracks are longer than usual for the Fantasy years – and titles include "Walkin With Wally", "Doxy", "Round Midnight", "Tumbao", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "SS Groove", "Tu Crees Que", and "Afro Blue".

Jazzman/Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
The Jazzman label hits a whole new level of brilliance – as they turn their funk-trained crate digging skills to the world of spiritual jazz! The collection's an amazing batch of ultra-rare tunes – tracks that take inspiration from the John Coltrane/Archie Shepp work on Impulse Records in the 60s, then run with those roots in bold new directions – soaring, spiritual aims in jazz that reach for new freedoms, but never lapse into the totally-outside modes of free jazz! Instead, there's a really great balance here between structure and struggle – as many tunes often have a good rhythmic pulse, usually modal and soulful, then let the horn solos stretch out more in their own sounds and directions. The mix is amazing, as is the selection of tunes – rare numbers pulled mostly from American independent jazz releases of the 60s and 70s – most of which are as obscure as the funky 45s we normally get from Jazzman. As with the label's US funk compilations, there's full notes on all the music – a heck of a lot of detail on these artists – and tracks on the set include "Paul's Ark" by Morris Wilson Beau Bailey Quintet, "Ayo Ayo Nene" by Mor Thiam, "Nomusa" by Ndikho Xaba & The Natives, "The Afrikan In Winter" by The Positive Force, "Neveen" by Salah Ragab, "Ja Mil" by Hastings Street Jazz Experience, "Be There" by Leon Gardner, "Psych City" by Ohio Penitentiary 511 Jazz Ensemble, "Introduction" by James Tatum Trio Plus, and "No Jive" by Frank Derrick Total Experience. US pressing has 2 bonus tracks – "All Prasies To Allah (parts 1 & 2 edit)" by Lightmen Plus One, and "Bada Que Bash" by PE Hewitt Jazz Ensemble. CD

Pacific Jazz/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1956/1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wealth of great work from Chico Hamilton in the 50s! First up is the self-titled Chico Hamilton Quintet album – Pacific Jazz 1225 – not to be confused with other similar-titled Chico Hamilton albums at the time! This one sports an abstract painting on the cover, and was recorded in 1956 at the Forum Theater in Los Angeles – not live, but using the space as a very open-sounding studio – with really amazing results! The lineup features Hamilton on drums, Paul Horn on alto and tenor sax and clarinet, John Pisano on guitar, Fred Katz on cello and Carson Smith on bass – kind of a second-generation of Hamilton's group, with Horn taking over wonderfully from Buddy Collette, and playing with even more sensitivity than before. The work's very much in Hamilton's best sprightly chamber jazz mode – with some great originals that include "Chanel #5", "Beanstalk", "Mr. Jo Jones", and "Reflections" – plus Hamilton-ized versions of "Satin Doll", "Caravan", "Soft Winds", "Siete-Cuatro", "I Know", and "Lillian". Next up are 3 more tracks recorded in LA for the Stars Of Jazz TV show – "Blue Sands", "The Ghost", and "The Morning After". These are followed by 5 more by the Hamilton Quintet from The Sweet Smell Of Success film – "Cheek To Chico", "Susan", "Sidney's Theme", "Jonalah", and "Goodbye Baby". Last up are 2 of the rarest cuts – "Show Me" and "I'm A Funny Dame" – both pulled from a compilation called Jazz Swings Broadway. CD

Prestige/Riverside/Milestone, 1956/1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 of the few sessions that pianist Elmo Hope cut as a leader in groups with horn players – back to back on one CD, with great notes! First up is Informal Jazz – a 1956 blowing session with Hope on the keys, and a great group that includes Donald Byrd, John Coltrane, and Hank Mobley – plus Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The 4 tracks from that session are all nice and long, with plenty of solo space – and titles include "Weeja", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "On It", and "Avalon". Next is material from the album Homecoming – a great little album that Hope made upon his return to the east coast in the early 60s, not too long before he passed away. Half the tunes are cut with a sextet that features Blue Mitchell, Frank Foster, and Jimmy Heath – and the other are cut with a trio that features Hope, Percy Heath, and Philly Joe Jones, who provide the rhythm for the sextet tunes. The mix of settings is about half and half – and titles include "Moe Jr", "La Berthe", "Eyes So Beautiful", and "One Mo Blues". It's great to hear Hope back with horns, after cutting so many trio sides during this point in his life – and his unique style on the keys is still matched nicely with the larger group of players. CD

Tracks are all quite long, and titles include "Git Go Blues", "Speak Low", "Stretchin Out", and "High & Flighty".

One of the only albums ever issued by vibist Lynn Blessing – a player best known for his LA session work in the 60s, and who's stepping out here in a slightly psychedelic approach to jazz! The style's a bit like some of Emil Richard's best work of the time – warmly chromatic vibes, but touched with elements that definitely show some of the changes in the late 60s scene – bits of rock, jazz, and country filtered into the album's instrumental groove – with steel guitar from Sneaky Pete Kleinow, plus additional guitar and drums. There's a nicely open, flowing energy to most tracks – looser than a Verve or Impulse album of this type, and with some nice modal elements on some of the best tracks. Paul Horn produced, and titles include "Sunset Painter", "Anacalypsis", "From Deep Within For Lynn", "Pinball Wizard", "Emerald River", "Child Of The Universe", "Cosmic Cowboy", and "Where There Is Grass".

Higgins has a groove that was schooled in the funky 45 underground of Chicago – and here, he really finds a great way to pick things up for Mitchell – relieving him of the duties of being a leader on his own, and coming up with tight jams that then let Blue step out as the main solo talent! Other players include Paul Humphrey on drums, Anthony Ortega on tenor, Jim Horn and Ernie Watts on flute, and Monk Higgins himself on organ, tenor, and piano! The whole thing's a great jam, and includes many tasty cuts, like "Deeper In Black", "Jo Ju Ja", "Blue On Black", "Monkin Around", and "Keep Your Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Louis SmithSmithville (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really hard-edged set from trumpeter Louis Smith – one of his only two albums as a leader from the early years, and a heck of a great little album, thanks to tenor work by Charlie Rouse! Rouse is blowing beautifully here in one of his classic pre-Monk appearances – recorded at a time when he was more of a hard bopper than a modernist, but still working with an ear for unusual tones and phrasing. His horn sounds beautiful next to the deeply soulful trumpet of Smith – and the pair are supported by a rhythm team that includes Sonny Clark on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Titles include "Smithville", "Embraceable You", "Wetu", and "Later" – all done in nice long versions! CD

✨✧ Keith TippettLoose Kite In A Gentle Wind ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from an overlooked period of Keith Tippett's career – a mid 80s stretch when he was working with a great lineup of players! The performance features some especially great saxophone work from Larry Stabbins on tenor and soprano, and Elton Dean on saxello and a bit of alto – two wonderful musicians whose reed lines bring an even more evocative sound to Tippett's music than usual – blown with plenty of stretched-out soul in the expanded live setting of the album. Keith's piano has plenty of offbeat, modern tones – nicely offset to the saxes – and other players include Mark Charig on cornet and tenor horn, Nick Evans on trombone, Paul Rogers on double bass, and Tony Levin on drums and percussion. Given that Tippett and Stabbins were both working with crossover jazz groups like Working Week and Weekend around the same time, the performance is a real revelation – and a reminder that all players were still at the top of their game! Most of the set features the long track "A Loose Kite In A Gentle Wind Floating With Only My Will For An Anchor" – and the other track is titled "Dedicated To Mingus". CD

Vanguard/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The fantastic first outing of Oregon as a quartet – recorded right after the group's initial work with the Paul Winter Consort – but not released until a decade after the material was first put down to tape! Oregon had already reached greater fame by the time of the record's issue in 1980 – but you can easily hear the fullness of their vision here, right at the start – the unusual blend of world elements and jazz – served up in a pre-ECM universe by Ralph Towner on guitars, piano, and mellophone; Paul McCandless on oboe and English Horn; Glen Moore on bass and flute; and Collin Walcott on tablas, sitar, 12 string guitar, percussion, and esraj. The songs are maybe a bit more spacious and shorter than later years, but the group's sound is very firmly in place – on titles that include "Jade Vision", "Margueritte", "Canyon Song", "Full Circle", "Collin's Delite", and "Aheer".

Dave Brubeck/Gerry Mulligan/Paul DesmondWe're All Together Again For The First Time ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Kind of a meeting of two different generations of Dave Brubeck – as the group here features Paul Desmond's alto sax, a key force in Dave's early recordings – and the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan, a player who'd worked often with Brubeck in the late 60s and early 70s! The blend of horns is really amazing, and the live recording really moves past other obvious Brubeck modes – showing Dave's whole new conception after the breakup of the original quartet – and his willingness to open into new rhythms, and even freer modes of expression. Mulligan's baritone is wonderfully powerful – coming across here with a depth that we'd hardly have expected a few years before – and rhythm is from Jack Six on bass and Alan Dawson on drums, both players who also add to the transformation of the Brubeck groove. Titles include "Koto Song", "Unfinished Woman", "Truth", "Take Five", and "Rotterdam Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

A reunion of sorts for Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan – given that the pair had played together on record 5 years before, in a similar session for Verve! This album's almost lighter and more airy than the previous one – as it's done in a mode that echoes strongly with Desmond's own genius at RCA at the time – using a piano-less quartet format that has both horns carving out their own subtle space in sound, hanging together, but each occupying a different range of tonal color. The tracks are relatively longish, and the pair dart around each other nicely on tracks like "All The Things You Are", "Out Of Nowhere", "Blight Of The Fumble Bee", and "Two Of A Mind". CD

Verve, 1958. Near Mint- 2LP ... $9.99
A Verve 80s twofer that combines Gerry Mulligan's sides with Stan Getz and Paul Desmond for the label onto one double album set. Mulligan's pairing with Getz is a great combo, with his baritone work cut nicely by Getz's wispy alto – making for a combination of horns that yeilds some wonderful moments that opens both players up more than usual for the time. Titles include "Anything Goes", "Ballad", and "That Old Feeling" – and the rhythm section features Lou Levy, Stan Levey, and Ray Brown. The second set finds Mulligan and Desmond weaving laidback lines around each other in a pianoless quartet that features Dave Bailey on drums and Joe Benjamin on bass. The album features some great blowing by Desmond, icy tone firmly in place, and pushing Mulligan past some of the easy moments that he could often fall into on other sessions. Titles include "Blues In Time", "Standstill", "Line For Lyons", and "Fall Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Very different work than usual for superdrummer Paul Humphrey – a warm, acoustic set of soul jazz – with a very different approach than his 70s albums! Humphrey's really stepping out here as a strong straight jazz leader – working with a group that includes west coast hornmen Buster Cooper, Oscar Brashear, and Herman Riley – arranged by the pianist in the group, Llew Mathews. The tunes are nearly all originals – done with a post-Horace Silver style that mixes the soulful and the introspective, and which slides into lots of warm tones and colors, all while still keeping its groove.

A great Morricone soundtrack for a Jean-Paul Belmondo thriller – a score that starts out spare and brooding, then builds nicely as things move on – with lots of cool bottom-end sounds that make the whole thing really move up from the depths! Some tunes echo the sweeter side of Morricone, while others are a bit more brooding – and instrumentation includes some of the same offbeat piano you'd hear in The Burglars, plus light guitar, weird-tuned horns, and other nice bits that are sometimes abstracted beyond recognition! Titles include "Consideration Sur Un Homicide", "Paris Secret", "Defense De Stationner" and "Mannequins". 2LP set features a number of tracks that appear here on vinyl for the first time – and one previously-unissued track – a total of 30 titles in all!

Wahoo is right – as Duke Pearson sets up one of his hippest sessions of the 60s, a lyrical batch of soul jazz tracks, with that slight edge of darkness that he was putting into his best work as the decade progressed! Players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Joe Henderson on tenor, and Donald Byrd on trumpet – and the overall feel is perhaps a bit like some of those Byrd sessions that were heavily influenced by Pearson, but also with a bit of the later expansive style of writing for horns that you'd find on albums like Pearson's Prarie Dog or Bobby Hutcherson's The Phantom. Titles include "ESP", "Fly Little Bird Fly", "Farewell Machelle", "Bedouin", and "Amanda". CD

Roy PorterInner Feelings (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Vistone/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99
A crazy bit of funk from drummer Roy Porter – a player who first rose to fame during the LA bop years of the late 40s, but who sounds even hipper here in the 70s! The album's got a madly skittish approach to funk – one that's highly rhythmic, but often in unconventional ways – somewhat similar to Redd Holt's excellent albums for the Paula label. Roy plays drums, percussion, and sings a bit – and the grooves run from break-heavy instrumentals to even cooler numbers that bring in more of a sense of flow and soul – really opening things up beyond any simple 70s jazz funk cliches, and hitting some really wicked new territory! Instrumentation includes plenty of great horns, electric piano, guitar, and even a bit of Arp – all used in really inventive and creative ways. Titles include the classic crate-digging favorites "Panama" and "Party Time", plus a vocal version of "Jessica", a cover of Jobim's "Waver-ing", and another nice original called "Funny Feelin'"! Tremendous stuff all the way through! CD

The tune is listed as composed by Tippett – and there's definitely some pre-conceived lyrics by Julie – but the performance is pretty open-ended, and definitely feels improvised at most points. CD

Stanley Turrentine's no spoiler here – as his tenor sax soars out over the top of some sweet larger group arrangements from Duke Pearson – all awash in a great sense of soul, joy, and life! The album's got a much brighter feel than you might guess from the cover – a vibe that's a bit similar to Stan's classic Joyride album, but a bit more open and free – thanks to the lyrical touches of Pearson on the charts. Other players include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, James Spaulding on alto and flute, and Pepper Dadams on baritone sax – plus rhythm from McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on electric bass, Mickey Roker on drums, and Joseph Rivera on percussion. As on some of the other Pearson dates from the time – particularly those with Donald Byrd – the use of electric bass really opens things up, by creating a subtle rhythmic pulse that really drives most numbers along. And also in the Pearson mode, the added players aren't really a horn section in the conventional way – just a group of like-minded, top-shelf jazz players who egg on the main soloist with a great sense of enthusiasm for the music! Titles include "La Fiesta", "The Magilla", "Sunny", "Maybe September", "You're Gonna Hear From Me", and "When The Sun Comes Out". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tenors can't get any more conclaved than this – as the record brings together 4 players on the instrument in a great match from 2 of the best sides of 50s jazz! John Coltrane and Hank Mobley represent the more open, soulful side of the spectrum – and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims the tighter, more smartly arranged aspect. Together, the quartet of horns work in an open-ended blowing mode with rhythm by Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor – in a way that almost makes the set a "Coltrane plus" album for Prestige – one that has the structure of some of the best Trane/Garland sides for the label, but which blows in some other horns with different voicings. If you ever needed a record to demonstrate the subtler shadings of genius within 50s modern jazz, yet still convince you that it could also be relaxed and spontaneous, this record may well be the one. Titles include 2 standards – "Just You, Just Me" and "How Deep Is The Ocean" – plus 2 Mobley originals – "Tenor Conclave" and "Bob's Boys". CD

An early moment of brilliance as a leader for bassist Peter Kowald – and maybe a record of his that matches the early FMP albums of Peter Brotzmann for sheer, raw intensity! There's almost a Machine Gun-like power here – as the group comes on with all the amazing energy that the early European free jazz scene had to offer – that moment when music like this was as much a force in politics and the larger cultural world as it was in jazz – with Kowald at the head of a group that also features Gunter Christmann and Paul Rutherford on trombones, Peter Van De Locht on alto, and Paul Lovens on drums. The trombones alone are worth the price of admission – and Kowald sometimes joins in on tuba and alphorn – on improvisations that include "Pavement Bolognaise", "Guete Luuni", "Platte Talloere", and "Wenn Wir Kehlkopfoperierte Uns Unterhalten".

The record features Willis working with Paul Winley – blowing soulful riffs over backing by a group that includes organ, guitar, and added horns, on a set of hip early 70s soul covers and pop tunes. The album includes the same funky version of "Ain't No Sunshine" that appeared on the Harlem Underground album – plus a cover of "Soul Train" that's pretty darn nice, and sweeter versions of tunes like "Love Story", "What's Going On", "It's Too Late", "Don't Knock My Love", and "Heavy Makes You Happy". Lots of nice riffs! CD
(In a very cool Japanese-styled, LP-like cardboard sleeve cover!)

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineSpoiler ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stanley Turrentine's no spoiler here – as his tenor sax soars out over the top of some sweet larger group arrangements from Duke Pearson – all awash in a great sense of soul, joy, and life! The album's got a much brighter feel than you might guess from the cover – a vibe that's a bit similar to Stan's classic Joyride album, but a bit more open and free – thanks to the lyrical touches of Pearson on the charts. Other players include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, James Spaulding on alto and flute, and Pepper Dadams on baritone sax – plus rhythm from McCoy Tyner on piano, Bob Cranshaw on electric bass, Mickey Roker on drums, and Joseph Rivera on percussion. As on some of the other Pearson dates from the time – particularly those with Donald Byrd – the use of electric bass really opens things up, by creating a subtle rhythmic pulse that really drives most numbers along. And also in the Pearson mode, the added players aren't really a horn section in the conventional way – just a group of like-minded, top-shelf jazz players who egg on the main soloist with a great sense of enthusiasm for the music! Titles include "La Fiesta", "The Magilla", "Sunny", "Maybe September", "You're Gonna Hear From Me", and "When The Sun Comes Out". CD

✨✧ Os GatosAquele Som Dos Gatos ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most legendary groups from the bossa era in Brazil – a combo of incredible players, working with sublime arrangements by Eumir Deodato – all in a sound that hardly been matched again! The group only ever recorded two albums, but they've had a lasting impact on the sound of bossa for years to come – thanks to an expansive vision that brings together spare rhythms, jazz soloing, and larger strings – all with a quality that's lighter than air – almost a sum that's far less than the total of its elements – but in a really great way! The sense of spareness and poise here is really amazing – years ahead of Deodato's better-known US arrangements in the late 60s, and somehow even more impressive here. Players include Paulo Moura on alto sax, Neco on guitar, Meirelles on flute, Wilson Das Neves on drums, and Mauricio Einhorn on harmonica – and some tracks also feature a bit of light vocals floating along gently, almost as instruments themselves. Titles include "Aqua De Beber", "Clichet", "Feitinha Pro Poeta", "E Nada Mais", "Blue Set", and "Silk Stop". CD

✨✧ Claudia ThompsonGoodbye To Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Edison/Modern Harmonic, 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spare vocals and light guitar – an approach that's quite similar to the late 50s Liberty work of Julie London – and which features vocalist Claudia Thompson singing to great accompaniment from guitarist Barney Kessel! The style here is moody and mellow – not nearly as romantic as you might guess from the cover, and with some great dark undercurrents that really help keep the album interesting throughout. As proved by his Liberty work with London, Barney's a great talent for such a date – and plays here in small groups that feature Ted Nash on flute or alto, Benny Carter on alto, Paul Smith or Arnold Ross on piano, and Red Mitchell on bass. A few tunes feature some light added horns, but a few more feature only guitar and bass – making for an especially spare and intimate sound. Titles include "I'm Through With Love", "The Morning After", "Goodbye", "You Call It Madness", "Fan Me", "I Was Yours", and "Gloomy Sunday". CD features bonus tracks – "Gloomy Sunday (7" version)" and "Goodnight My Pet". CD

RCA/Bluebird, 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A nicely understated session that was recorded in honor of Billy Strayhorn – who'd passed away a few months before the recording. The set features all classic Strayhorn compositions – played in new versions by Duke and a group that includes Clark Terry, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Aaron Bell, and Jimmy Hamilton. The recording quality is great, and the sound of the album really makes old classics sparkle nicely once again! Titles include "UMMG", "Blood Count", "Boo Dah", "Rain Check", "Day Dream", "All Day Long", and "Lotus Blossom", done in a haunting solo piano version by Duke! CD

Columbia/Legacy, 1952. Used ... $6.99
One of Duke Ellington's standout sides for Columbia – a strong recording that revisits many of the best elements of his earlier work, and offers up some more sophisticated scoring for the 50s – thanks to extended track length in the LP generation! The tunes here are older ones, but they're taken to some nicely hip territory – thanks to Duke's strong ear for modern changes, and a line up of players that includes Billy Strayhorn on piano, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Clark Terry and Ray Nance on trumpets, Juan Tizol on trombone, and Louis Bellson on drums. Bellson does a great job on the classic "Skin Deep" – a real showcase for his talents in this recording – and other titles include "The Mooche", "Take The A Train", and "Perdido" – plus a 13 minute reading of "A Tone Parallel To Harlem (aka The Harlem Suite)".

Duke EllingtonSuch Sweet Thunder ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Excellent Duke Ellington work from the late 50s – written and recorded during a period in which he was reemerging with a stronger jazz vision than ever before! The set was written by Ellington and Strayhorn – and dedicated to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario – but forget the Bard-inspired roots of the tracks, because the shimmering moods of the pieces is pure Ellington – with a richness of feeling that's totally great, and a sound that's wonderfully fresh, given that most of these numbers aren't overplayed Ellington compositions! Players include Cat Anderson and Clark Terry on trumpets, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, and Johnny Hodges on alto – and titles include "The Telecasters", "Circle Of Fourths", "Sonnet For Caesar", "Sonnet To Hank Cinq", and "Such Sweet Thunder".

Thad JonesMotor City Scene ... CD
United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
A rare treasure from Thad Jones – a unique one-off session for United Artists, cut right around the same time as his classic 50s dates for Blue Note! The format is very laidback and open-ended – not really a blowing session, but kind of a relaxed studio outing – one that has Jones working with some players from his Detroit hometown, laying solos in the cut over some warmly soulful rhythms! Tracks are all nice and long, which gives plenty of room for solos – and in addition to Jones on cornet and flugelhorn, the set also features trombone from Al Grey, tenor from Billy Mitchell, piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass from Paul Chambers, and drums from Elvin Jones. Mitchell is always amazing in a set like this – and the album's one of his few small group sets of the time – worth it alone for his excellent playing. Titles include "Like Old Times", "Minor On Top", "Let's Play One", and "No Refill". CD

Seu JorgeCarolina ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 2002. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 27.99
A HUGE batch of samba-soul grooves from Seu Jorge! Jorge previously knocked around Brazil as a member of the late 90s pop group Farofa Carioca, but his first solo outing is a massive step forward into the upper echelon of the Brazilian scene! Like the best of his contemporaries, Jorge uses the rich history of samba and bossa as a springboard – but it's the pronounced contemporary qualities, such as production and mix work by Beastie Boy producer Mario Caldato – that push Carolina way over the top and make it much more than a genre exercise! The title track echoes the earlier work of Jorge Ben, who actually pens the reggae-inflected tune "Em Nagoya Eu Vi Eriko", and the tracks "Mangueira" and "O Samba Tai" have the classic samba groove and crisp background vocals that would sound right in place on Tom Ze's Se O Caso E Chorar. "Hagua" has a deep reggae thump, and nearly everything here has kind of a 70s soul feel thanks to some bright, almost Kool & The Gang-like horn arrangements! The group includes Azymuth drummer Mamao, Paulinho Black on bass, Banda Black Rio's William Magalhaes on keyboards, and Josimar Monteiro on violin. Another great new solo artist from Brazil, and one that we expect amazing things from in the years to come! LP, Vinyl record album

Not Two (Poland), 2018. Used ... $9.99
A large group with a really strong command of their sound – so much so that at points the full frenzy of all members seems to pack this really enormous punch, before getting balanced from more personal, individual moments in music! The idea of an improvisers orchestra is nothing new, but these guys definitely have a sound that's all their own – a really fresh variation on the concept, which comes in part from the mix of instrumentation in the lineup. Players include Liliana Zieniawa on vibes, Patryk Zakrocki on viola, Marcin Bozek on French horn, Tomek Choloniewski on percussion, Marta Dramowicz on electronics, Mawina Kolodziejczyk on tenor, Paulina Owczarek on alto, Sebastian Mac on guitar, and both Ernest Ogorek and Adam Stodolski on bass. Owczarek conducts, Adam Nyk provides a bit of voice, and the long performance runs for over 40 minutes, divided into three sections. CD

Phil's sound is incredible here – maybe even more inventive than during his Tribe Records days of the 70s – and the group is a small one, with just percussion from Carlos Nino, guitar from Hideaki Tokunaga, drums from Andre Beasley, and bass from Ian Martin or Michael Alvidrez. The lack of piano or other horns means that Ranelin is right up front in the mix at all times – and that spotlight only seems to call more attention to his genius than ever before.

Here, the results are superb – thanks in strong part to the great Duke Pearson, whose growing talents as an arranger are perfect for the sound of Turrentine's horn – warmly soulful and lyrical, but still with a nice sense of bite – one that's furthered by work from James Spaulding on alto, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, Grant Green on guitar, and McCoy Tyner on piano. The whole thing comes of wonderfully – with some open tunes that never feel too tightly constricted, which results in some great solo moments – on the tunes "Baptismal", "Feeling Good", "Shake", "Walk On By", and "And Satisfy".

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The image of a female singer at a piano is nothing new, but it definitely has a very special place in the history of jazz – maybe one of the few spots where a female instrumentalist could really get some time in the spotlight, while also breaking past some of the more standard cliches of teary-eyed torch singers too! This set is an excellent overview of the tradition – and features material from the early years of jazz, when there was maybe a stronger through-line to blues as well – then follows artists up through a huge boom in the postwar years – as piano lines got more modern, and vocal approaches did too! The set does a great job of mixing up traditions – still following some of the more blues-based artists through the 50s as well – and as with every great set on the Fremeaux label, the set features detailed notes in English and French on all the contents. 76 tracks in all – with selections by Cleo Brown, Una Mae Carlisle, Katie Webster, Lilette Thomas, Shirley Horn, Madonna Martin, Christine Chatman, Jeri Southern, Blossom Dearie, Hadda Brooks, Frantic Fay Thomas, Louise Johnson, Martha Davis, Nellie Lutcher, Clara Ward, Ira Mae Littlejohn, Paula Watson, Arizone Dranes, Camille Howard, and a number of others.

A sublime setting for the vocals of the great Ivan Lins – wrapped up here in some really inventive arrangements from the SWR Big Band, who bring an energy to the album we haven't heard from Lins in years! Ivan's vocals take on this soaring, fluid quality that reminds us why we first fell in love with his music so many years ago – a transcendent quality that's really let loose the more the band seems to energize their rhythms and horn charts – almost scatting at times, given the jazzy vibe of the whole record! Arranger Ralf Schmid really makes magic on the record – and the album also features work from Paula Morelenbaum on guest vocals, and a bit of vocals from a South African choir. Tracks include "Samba De Vision", "Missing Miles", "Guantanamineira", "Roda Baiana", "Trem Bom", and "Awa Yio". CD
