✨✧ Larry Goldings/Peter Bernstein/Bill StewartPerpetual Pendulum ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2022. Used ... Out Of Stock
The sense of movement in the album's title is really well-put – as organist Larry Goldings has this effortless way of running up and down the keys of his instrument, and the bass pedals too – spinning things out in a really freewheeling style that's caught fire by the guitar of Peter Bernstein and drums of Bill Stewart! There's a very modern vibe to the whole thing – the album's not a set that's out to rehash a 60s soul jazz mode, but instead show that new expressions from a guitar/organ trio are alive and well – maybe no surprise, given the strength that both Goldings and Bernstein have given us over the years – although brought into even greater focus here. Titles include "Lurkers", "Little Green Men", "Libra", "United", "FU Donald", and "Perpetual Pendulum". CD

✨✧ Digable PlanetsBlowout Comb ... LP
Pendulum, 1994. Sealed 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The laidback classic! The Digables certainly weren't the first or the most innovative hip hop group to rely upon cooled out jazzy grooves for the backbone of their sound, but they really brought it home with a hugely endearing and long enduring vibe – and this is their masterpiece! All these years later, Blowout Comb is still pure gold. Loads of tripped out arrangements on live instruments – which is a huge step for the group after their largely sampled debut – and layer upon layer of groovy vocals in addition to the easy rhymes of Butterfly, Ladybug and Doodlebug. Also includes an appearance by Jeru! Probably the catchiest jazz-rap fusion record of all time! Tracks include "The May 4th Movement Starring Doodlebug", "Black Ego", "Dog It", "Jettin", "Borough Check", "Highing Fly", "Dial 7", "The Art Of Easing", "K.B.'s Alley", "Graffiti", "Blowing Down", "9th Wonder", and "For Corners". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue on Light In The Attic/Modern Classics, sealed. Appears to be a black vinyl pressing. Cover has light corner bumps.)

Neil Ardley, Norma Winstone, Ian Carr, & OthersMike Taylor Remembered (limited 180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Lantern Editions (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $29.99 34.99
A beautiful tribute to the legendary British pianist Mike Taylor – recorded at the equally legendary Landsdowne studios in the early 70s, with contributions from some of Taylor's key contemporaries – and released here for the first time ever! Taylor was a rising star in the London scene of the 60s, but sadly passed away right at the end of the decade – leaving a great sense of loss and unfulfilled promise – part of which is addressed by the work on the set. All tracks are original compositions by Taylor – music penned back in the 60s, and given a more ambitious performance here by a large ensemble directed by Neil Ardley – and featuring Henry Lowther and Ian Carr on trumpets, Barbara Thompson and Ray Warleigh on reeds, Peter Lemer on piano and electric piano, Alan Branscombe on vibes, and Norma Winstone on vocals. There's strands here of some of the other high-concept large ensemble work from the UK in the same generation – echoes of Mike Westbrook or Mike Gibbs – but the style's also more personal too, with more of the spirit of some of Taylor's own small group recordings from his all-too-short career. Titles include "Summer Sounds Summer Sights", "Half Blue/Pendulum", "I See You", "Song Of Love", "Folk Dance No 2", "Jumping Off The Sun", "Black & White Raga", and "Timewind". LP, Vinyl record album

Brian BennettVoyage – A Journey Into Discoid Funk (with bonus tracks) ... CD
DJM/Strawberry (UK), 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A really heady record from British drummer Brian Bennett – an artist known for both jazz and funky sound library work – here stretching out in a mode that really fits the image on the cover! The tunes are longer than some of Bennett's earlier sound library material – almost a mix of progressive energy with jazzier funk – a lot cooler than the disco reference in the title might imply! The set's got tremendous keyboards from Francis Monkman – who handles all the spacier elements, while the drums of Bennett works the rhythms with bass from Alan Jones – on long tracks with plenty of complexity, but also plenty of groove! Titles include "Voyage", "Solstice", "Chain Reaction", "Pendulum Force", "Air Quake", and "Ocean Glide". 2CD version features a full CD of bonus material – including 7" single mixes of "Pendulum Force" and "Ocean Glide" – and working mixes of every track on the album.

Mike Clark & Paul JacksonFunk Stops Here ... CD
Enja/Tip Toe, 1992. Used ... $6.99
Two members of the legendary Headhunters step out here on a great set of their own – material from a time when Herbie Hancock's ex-backing group were really enjoying a strong revival period! Mike Clark is on drums and Paul Jackson is on bass – and the pair get lots of deft solo work out of saxophonist Kenny Garrett, whose presence here is key to the more soulful side of the record – and nicely balances out the keyboard lines of Jeff Pittson – a player who's using more modern keyboard elements than Herbie used with the group in the 70s, but at a level that still lives up to the jazz funk promise of the group. Titles include "Spider Man", "Swamp Thing", "Steady Freddy", "Jurassic Park", "Pitt & The Pendulum", "Slinky", and "Hotel Domingo". CD

Oscar PettifordNew Oscar Pettiford Sextet (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Debut/OJC, Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Although bassist Oscar Pettiford left a huge influence on jazz before his untimely death, there's not actually that many fantastic records in which he's featured as a leader. Fortunately, this is one of the few, and it's a sparkling set of modernist inflected bop tunes played by a group that includes Mingus on bass, Phil Urso on tenor, Walter Bishop on piano, and Percy Heath on drums. Pettiford plays cello, and his lead on the instrument gives the record a dark tone that is extremely haunting. Titles include "Low & Behold", "Pendulum At Falcon's Lair", and "Tamalpais Love Song".

Mike TaylorMike Taylor – Trio, Quartet, & Composer – Revisited ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A fantastic tribute to the overlooked genius of British pianist Mike Taylor – an artist who made a few key contributions in the late 60s, before turning up dead in the River Thames at the young age of 31! The core of the package is Mike's debut Trio album – a lost set of modernist piano jazz from the British scene of the late 60s – very much in the mode of the best American work of the time by pianists like Steve Kuhn or Don Friedman! Taylor's got an incredible touch on the keys – a post-Bill Evans mode that uses space as much a sound, and which paints in broad colors and tones that seem to glisten in their own unique place in the musical spectrum. The sound is free, but never too "out" – and the trio performs a number of strong originals like "Just A Blues", "Two Autumns", "Guru", and "Abena" – plus completely transformed versions of "Stella By Starlight" and "All The Things You Are". CD then also includes one quartet track from the album Pendulum – recorded with Dave Tomlin on soprano sax, in a 14 minute take on "Night In Tunisia". Then, the set really steps into a few surprises – as Taylor composed the music for a few Cream tracks (bassist Jack Bruce was an early jazz partner of Mike) – so the set features the early Cream recordings of "Passing The Time", "Pressed Rat & Warthog", and "Those Were The Days".

The record features SY teaming up with the likes of Christian Marclay, Jim O'Rourke, Takehisha Kosugi, William Winnat, Christian Wolff, and Wharton Tiers – on a set of tracks that provide a fitting farewell to 20th Century music. Titles include Steve Reich's "Pendulum Music", John Cage's "Six" and "Four (6)", Yoko Ono's "Voice Piece For Soprano", Christian Wolff's "Edges", George Maciunas' "Piano Piece #13", and Cornelius Cardew's "Treatise".

✨✧ Bobbie GentryDelta Sweete (2CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1968. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A sublime album from the great Bobbie Gentry – and maybe her strongest full-length set recorded during the classic Capitol years! The title's "sweete" is a hillbilly play on the word "suite" – and the album definitely works as an extended suite of tracks – almost a concept album, and one that mixes lots of Bobbie's own tunes with a few well-chosen covers – all set to larger arrangements that feature strings from Jimmie Haskell and horns directed by Shorty Rogers – all while Gentry leads the combo at the core! Later Capitol albums had Gentry doing a lot of covers, and maybe losing her identity a bit – but this set is more of an expansion on the mode she brought to the "Billie Joe" single – with tracks that include "Reunion", "Mornin Glory", "Sermon", "Penduli Pendulum", "Jessye Lisabeth", "Courtyard", "Okolona River Bottom Band", and "Refractions". 2CD version features a brand new stereo mix from the original tapes, the original mono mix of the album, and bonus tracks that include demos of "Mornin Glory", "Sermon", "Jessye Lisabeth", "Louisiana Man", "Refractions", "The Way I Do", and "Feelin Good" – plus an instrumental of "Okolona River Bottom Band", and an alternate take of "Mississippi Delta".

✨✧ Eberhard WeberOnce Upon A Time – Live In Avignon ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2022. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bassist Eberhard Weber has recording legacy for the ECM label that goes back decades – and here, he's still very much at his best, working in a solo setting that was initially recorded live in the 90s – with a tremendous sense of tone, control, and phrasing throughout! Weber was one of the key players to really shape bass notes in a newly musical way during the early years of his career – and that quality really comes through here, and with a mixture of organically melodic moments that still have this layer of complexity too – almost at a level that will have you wondering if Eberhard doesn't secretly have another musician hiding out with him on stage – as there's a richness to the sound that's really breathtaking. If you've never fully grasped the talents of Weber as a musician, this is a record that will really open up your ears – with titles that include "Silent For A While", "Delirium", "Air", "Trio For Bassoon & Bass", "Pendulum", and "My Favorite Things".
