VariousJazz Am Rhein – 1967 to 1968 (6CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1967/1968. New Copy 6CD ... $99.99 107.99
Fantastic work from two different years of this important German Jazz Festival – material that provides a great live complement to some of the best studio jazz recordings of the late 60s European scene – such as those coming from the MPS label, and some of the record companies in Paris and London! The vibe here is mostly straight, but there are plenty of currents of modern, and maybe just a bit of free – and the set's especially great in illustrating the sort of unique groupings and musical moments that can make the jazz festival scene so rewarding! Material from 1967 includes three long tracks by the group of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger with organist Ingfried Hoffmann; a long performance from a big band led by Kurt Edelhagen, with work from trumpeters Shake Keane and Jimmy Deuchar, tenorists Wilton Gaynair and Karl Drewo, and altoist Derek Humble; four tracks by a quartet led by trumpeter Dusko Goykovich, with Bent Jaedig on tenor; two long improvisations from a group that features Manfred Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums; one track by a quartet with Ted Curson on trumpet and Nick Bridnola on soprano sax; four long cuts by the Clarke Boland Sextet, with Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone, Ake Persson on trombone, and Idrees Sulieman on trumpet; a sweet large group led by organist Ingfried Hoffmann, and a few other hip cuts too. 1968 features work by a sextet led by bassist Peter Trunk, with Shake Keane on flugelhorn, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Rob Pronk on piano; four tracks by the Clarke Boland Big Band, with Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone; two cuts by the twin tenor group of Hank Mobley and Johnny Griffin; a vocal performance by Jon Hendricks with a Clarke Boland group with Johnny Griffin in the lead; twin trombones from the Slide Hampton and Ake Persson Quintet; hip work from the trio of pianist George Gruntz, bassist Henri Texier, and drummer Daniel Humair; a number of tight tracks from the Maynard Ferguson big band, with Pete King on tenor; and two shorter trio tracks from Joachim Kuhn. Like other Be Music titles, the presentation is great – a really well-done box, and big booklet of notes and images. CD

✨✧ Art FarmerYesterday's Thoughts ... CD
East Wind (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Sublime work from trumpeter Art Farmer – and a key document of the way that he continued to develop his sound in the 70s! Farmer's at the height of his powers here – working in a soulful quartet with Cedar Walton, Sam Jones, and Billy Higgins – just setting up these beautiful little solos that seem to float out effortlessly from his golden horn. The gentle emotion and light swing of the album give it the surprisingly emotional pull of a sad San Francisco afternoon – as the sun shines brightly, but a strange chill interrupts any easy dreaming that might take place. Includes sublime versions of "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "How Insensitive", "Firm Roots", and Benny Golson's "Yesterday's Thoughts". CD

Tom HarrellMoving Picture ... CD
High Note, 2017. Used ... $9.99
Tremendous work from trumpeter Tom Harrell – a musician who's been making records for decades, but just seems to sound better and better as the years go on! Tom's always been wonderful, but a record like this seems to have him on fire with a whole new sense of purpose – a fresh musical mission, even at a time when he could easily sit back and rest on his laurels – really soaring out in a range of beautiful new compositions, and working in this soulful quartet that includes excellent piano from Danny Grissett, plus bass from Ugonna Okegwo and drums from Adam Cruz. Harrell's command of his trumpet and flugelhorn is amazing – fresh sounds, fresh tones, fresh lines that continue to hold us rapt throughout – on titles that include "Time Passage", "Montego Bay", "Moving Picture", "Apple House", "Sea", "Four The Moment", and "Different Clouds".

✨✧ Charles Tolliver & Music Inc.Live At The Loosdrecht Jazz Festival (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A searing live set from trumpeter Charles Tolliver – one of the few talents who could take his instrument into the kind of long-blown, beautifully open territory explored on a double length album like this! Tolliver maybe inherits a late Lee Morgan quality, but also opens up with the Woody Shaw generation – but at a level that's even more exploratory than Woody, and which follows up the fantastic sounds of his two part Live At Slugs albums, issued slightly earlier on the Strata East label! Strata is a name that's come to be synonymous with the best in spiritual jazz of the 70s – and Tolliver is the key figure at the top of that legacy – really making magic here in a quartet that includes John Hicks on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Alvin Queen on drums. Titles are all nice and long – and include "Grand Max", "Truth", "Prayer For Peace", "Our Second Father" and "Repetition". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brian Lynch & Emmet CohenQuestioned Answer ... CD
Hollistic Music Works, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brightly sparkling sounds from trumpeter Brian Lynch – working here in a great partnership with pianist Emmet Cohen, who proves to be a perfect pairing for the album! The duo have a rock-solid rhythm core – the mighty Billy Hart on drums and Boris Kozlov on bass – and together, the quartet soars right out of the gate – hitting a magnificent flow on a set of numbers that includes a fair bit of original compositions by the leaders. The tunes are nicely balanced, too – so that the straightforward numbers are rounded out by more complicated lyrical moments – really showing the depth of talent from Lynch and Cohen. Titles include "Cambios", "Dark Passenger", "Distant Hallow", "Buddy", "Petty Theft", and "Questioned Answer". CD

✨✧ Kenny WheelerComplete Remastered Recordings On Black Saint/Soul Note (Flutter By Butterfly/Welcome/All The More/Tales/Guest) (5CD set) ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Five later albums from trumpeter Kenny Wheeler – each presented in a tiny record-style sleeve, and packaged together in a sweet box set! First up is Flutter By Butterfly – warmly expressive work from trumpeter Kenny Wheeler – a set that's got the same depth of tone as his work for other labels, but which has a bit of a different feel as well. The record has maybe a bit more bite – not necessarily on Wheeler's trumpet or flugelhorn, the latter of which still retains its wonderfully airy sound – but instead on the overall conception, which makes careful but creative use of other group members – especially John Taylor on piano and Dave Holland on bass, as well as Billy Elgart on drums, and Stan Sulzmann on soprano, tenor, and flute. All tunes are originals by Wheeler, and really lovely ones at that – and titles include "Gigolo", "The Little Fella", "Miold Man", "We Salute The Night", and "Everybody's Song But My Own". Welcome has Kenny Wheeler working in a group with Claudio Fasoli on reeds – in a piano-less group that also includes Jean-Francois Jenny Clark on bass and Daniel Humair on drums – on titles that include "If Only", "Invisible Sound", "Epic", and "Oblivion". All The More is a dark quartet side that features the great John Taylor on piano – alongside Furio DiCastri on bass and Joe LaBarbera on drums! Taylor really brings out some moody moments alongside Kenny Wheeler's trumpet – and titles include "Phrase One", "Summer Night", "All The More", and "Kind Of Bill". Tales features a quartet with Paolino Della Porta, Stefano Battaglia, and Bill Elgart – on tracks that include "Night Breath", "Lullaby For Ugo", "A Place To Sing", and "Mbira". Last up is Guest – a record that features a larger group – the European Music Orchestra, conducted by Claudio Fasoli – with solos from Kenny Wheeler and Aldo Romano. Titles include "The Sweet Yakity Waltz", "Lyrical Touch", "Horizons", "Alex & Tom", and "WW". CD

✨✧ Dusko GoykovichSketch Of Yugoslavia ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic vintage set from the great trumpeter Dusko Goykovich – and a record that's very much in the best tradition of his groundbreaking early work! Goykovich emerged from the Yugoslavian scene during the key years of communist rule – and his bold, bright horn work was a shining light of freedom in the 60s and 70s – and was also often used as a way of illuminating the richer cultural corners of the Balkans, at a time when interaction with the area was more restricted. As with some of his famous MPS/Saba work, Dusko here creates an extended jazz suite, almost as a sonic poem to his homeland – performed with a core quartet that has Gokyovich on flugelhorn, Fritz Pauer on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Tony Inzalaco on drums – all with added horns from the NDR Radio Orchestra, who work beautifully to flesh out the vision of the leader, yet still really let Dusko stand as the main solo voice in the set. The whole thing's wonderful – proud and passionate throughout – with titles that include "Haze On The Danube", "Balkan Dance", "Bosna Calling", "East Of Montenegro", and "Shumadaya". CD

Brew MooreBrew Moore Quintet ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, 1956. Used ... $9.99
Tenorist Brew Moore was one of the best underrated players of the San Francisco scene of the 50s – and he had a gutsy tenor sound that almost made you think he was playing the baritone at times. This album is one of the few he ever cut as a leader, and it has him working with a quartet that's occasionally expanded into a quintet with the addition of trumpeter Dick Mills. The strongest point is Moore's tenor, though – which shines nicely on the set's original tunes, like "Them Old Blues", "Rose", "Rotation", and "Five Planets In Leo". CD

Enrico Rava & Aga Taura ConfabEl Convidado ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the most obscure albums ever recorded by Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava – and one of the greatest as well! The set is a rare meeting between Rava and some key players on the Argentine scene of the mid 70s – a great quartet that features Fernando Gelbard on Fender Rhodes, Adalberto Cevasco on bass, Nestor Astarita on drums, and Chango Faras Gomez on percussion – all working with Rava in a groove that's maybe warmer and more soulful than both his spacious and more experimental sides recorded in America and overseas! We always love Gelbard on Rhodes – and his work here really adds a lot to the record – never dominating, but always shaping the sound and forming the rhythm patterns – while Rava soars out with some open, well-placed solos. Titles include "Chico", "Ate Um Dia", "Barco Hasta El Cielo", and "Enrico Seis Octavo". LP, Vinyl record album

Barney WilenLive In Tokyo 1991 ... CD
Elemental, 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
Marvelous late work from tenorist Barney Wilen – the French reedman who first rose to fame in the late 50s, with crucial recordings with Miles Davis and Art Blakey – then really faded from view for most of the next few decades, before making a fantastic late life comeback, with a sound that was even better than before! We love all of the later Barney Wilen records a great deal, but we especially love his work in a live setting – as over the years, Wilen developed this tremendous ability to really stretch out on a solo, and still remain creative – hitting a level that matches the talents of tenor giants like Dexter Gordon or Johnny Griffin, save for the fact that Barney could also play soprano sax, which he does here, in addition to some of the tenor tunes. The group's a tight quartet – with superb work from pianist Olivier Hutman, who also plays some electric piano in addition to acoustic, plus Gilles Naturel on bass and Peter Gritz on drums. All material is issued here for the first time ever – and titles include "Beautiful Love", "L'Ame Des Poetes", "Little Lu", "Mon Blouson", "Besame Mucho", "Goodbye", "No Problem", "Latin Alley", "Bass Blues", "Doxy", "Old Folks", and "How Deep Is The Ocean".

✨✧ Don EllisHow Time Passes ... CD
Candid, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the greatest record that Don Ellis ever recorded – and his hippest too! The trumpeter's playing here with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on alto and piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums – coming together perfectly in that arch-modern style that you'd find on the best Candid albums from the time. Ellis tone is skittish and fragile – and sounds here almost like he's working in a Mingus-y mode, quite possibly because Byard's influence on the session is pretty strong. Titles include "Waste", "A Simplex One", "Sallie", and an extended "Improvisational Suite #1". CD

Pablo, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little date – one that's presented here with a really classic sense of jazz vocal recording, but oddly the kind of record that Sarah Vaughn hardly ever got to make back in the 50s! The setting is spare and simple – backing by a quartet that includes Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, Ray Brown, and Louis Bellson – but all players are nicely relaxed here, and never too uptight, or trying to over-express their place in the lineup – and instead step forward gently, quietly, to match Sarah's wonderfully mature vocals on the record. Titles include "Easy Living", "You're Blase", "More Than You Know", "Teach Me Tonight", "Body & Soul", "How Long Has This Been Going On", and "Midnight Sun". CD

✨✧ Steve NelsonBrothers Under The Sun ... CD
High Note, 2017. Used ... Out Of Stock
Steve Nelson's been one of the hippest talents on vibes for many years now – and an album like this is a great reminder of why we love his music so much! Nelson's never content to just echo the sound of previous masters of his instrument – and instead, like a rare few, he finds a way to integrate the instrument into a familiar jazz combo, but all without ever making the vibes stand in second place – really soaring out and ringing forth with a commanding power that really leaves us breathless! Here, Nelson's in some very well-matched, deeply soulful company – a killer quartet with Danny Grissett on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums – superb rhythm players whose own fires rise and burn with the energy of the leader. The ballads on the record are as great as the burners – and it's the burners we love most of all – on titles that include "Eastern Joy Dance", "Soul-Leo", "Grew's Tune", "Samba D'Blue", "New Wheels", "Brothers Under The Sun", and "Melody For Mulgrew".

✨✧ Farnell NewtonRippin & Runnin ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous trumpeter, set up here in his best format to date – a really heavy duty quartet that features tenor from Brandon Wright, drums from Rudy Royston, and Hammond from Brian Charette – who blows us away even more than usual with his skills on both the keys and the pedals at the bottom! Royston's drums are always great – and here, he's got this snapping, crackling energy that seems to light a fuse right from the very first note – which Charette fans into full flames of sound, topped by these bold lines and soaring solos from Newton and Wright – two horns that have a really rich power together, before breaking off into really wonderful solos. The whole thing's great – a cut above for even the always-great Posi-Tone label – and titles include "Holding Still", "The Roots", "Another Day Another Jones", "Gas Station Hot Dog", and "The Five AM Strut".

✨✧ Mike RichmondLa Vie En Rose ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rich, round tones from Mike Richmond – one of the few improvising cellists we know in jazz – a musician who can pluck the instrument with all the depth of a bassist, and whose work here takes us back to classics in the tiny genre by Ron Carter, Oscar Pettiford, and Eldee Young! The setting is lean, and the cello lines are clean – really inflected with a mix of melodic and rhythmic vibes – the latter of which are underscored by deeper conventional bass work by Jay Anderson, in a quartet with Peter Zak on piano and Billy Drummond on drums! The lineup have a great way of swinging gently, as Richmond moves between plucking and bowing – on titles that include "Stranger In Paradise", "Come Sunday", "La Vie En Rose", "Duke Ellington's Sound Of Love", and "Zingaro".

✨✧ Jimmy CobbThis I Dig Of You ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Drummer Jimmy Cobb has been in many great groups over the decade – and here, he's leading one of his own – a rock-solid quartet that features piano from Harold Mabern, bass from John Webber, and some especially nice guitar from Peter Bernstein! Bernstein's voice is right out front on most tracks – taking the lead, and getting some great solo space too – with a strong tone that really rings out, and which is matched by always-great work from Harold Mabern – a player who's been around as long as Cobb, and who just keeps knocking us out with excellent music over the years. Titles include Mabern's original "Edward Lee", the Bernstein tune "Blood Wolf Mon Blues", and versions of "Full House", "Yesterdays", "This I Dig Of You", "My Old Flame", and "Cheese Cake". CD
