✨✧ Eric AlexanderSong Of No Regrets ... CD
High Note, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Eric Alexander is in familiar company here, but he also seems to be using the setting to open up a bit more in terms of his color and groove – sometimes with a looser groove, sometimes with even a gentler approach to his phrasing – but always with that never-ending sense of imagination that we've always loved in his music! Alongside bassist John Webber, drummer Joe Farnsworth, and pianist David Hazeltine, the group also features Alex Diaz on percussion – who brings a bit of complexity to the rhythms, in a mighty nice way – and changes things up from the bottom, in ways that Eric seems to respond to with his horn. The album also features trumpeter Jon Faddis on a few tracks – and his sense of color also seems to bring out a slightly different vibe in Alexander, as the tenor responds in contrast to the more familiar sparkle of Jon's horn. Titles include "Mas Que Nada", "Grinder", "Corazon Perdido", "These Three Words", and "But Here's The Thing". CD

✨✧ RootsIlladelph Halflife ... CD
Geffen, 1996. Used ... $4.99
The second major label set from The Roots, and what many consider their first and definitely not their last) irrefutable classic! We could make the case for the debut Do You Want More? as a bonafide classic, too, but this is certainly the tone certainly the one that cemented their status and one of the greatest live-tested hip hop bands. Given how strong and far reaching The Roots pedigree would become over the years, this one's all the more amazing to revisit – and it's fresh and distinctive to this day. 20 tracks including intro & outro, with "Respond/React", "Clones", "No Alibi", "No Great Pretender" "Universe At War" (featuring Common while he was still Common Sense), "What They Do", "Ital (The Universal Side)", Concerto Of The Desparado", "The Adventures In Wonderland" and more. CD

✨✧ Wynton MarsalisHe & She ... CD
Blue Note, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the warmest records we've heard in years from Wynton Marsalis – a really unique little album that actually features bits of poetry spoken by Wynton in between the tracks! Before you cringe at the thought, give this one a chance – as the words were penned by Marsalis himself, and have a great deal of charm – dropped in for just a fraction of a minute here and there, in a poetry-meets-jazz tradition that hearkens back to the work that Langston Hughes did with Charles Mingus. The group really respond to the words with a personal sort of feeling, too – opening up with a lyrical sensibility that offsets the poems wonderfully – making the album as musically poetic as it is verbal. Marsalis plays trumpet, in a quintet that features tenor and soprano sax from Walter Blanding, piano from Dan Nimmer, bass from Carlos Henriquez, and drums from Ali Jackson. Titles inlcude "The Razor Rim", "A Train A Banjo & A Chicken Wing", "First Time", "First Kiss", "Zero", "School Boy", and "The Sun & The Moon". CD

✨✧ Gil Scott-Heron & His Amnesia ExpressSummer '86 (180 gram vinyl) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Trading Places (UK), 1986. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great live work from Gil Scott-Heron – and somewhat essential, too – as the set features recordings from a time when Gil wasn't working for any other record labels! The quality of the set is wonderful – although the man was a bit out of the limelight at the time, he could still really deliver greatness on stage – and the group features Robbie Gordon on bass, Kim Jordan on keyboards, and Ron Holloway on tenor – a nicely jazzy group who respond to some of the changes Gil brought to his music during the Arista years. Titles include "Gun", "Save The Children", "Is That Jazz", "Blue Collar", "Winter In America", "Johannesburg", "Washington DC", and "Three Miles Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dexter GordonIn The Cave ... CD
NJA (Netherlands), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning European live set from the legendary Dexter Gordon – one that was recorded early in his overseas tenure, and which is noteworthy for two reasons – first in that it was recorded in Utrecht, not the more familiar setting of Copenhagen – and second, in that it features a really smoking Dutch combo – musicians that Dex didn't always work with! The rhythm trio is stunning – the soulful Rob Madna on piano, with Ruud Jacobs on bass and Cees See on drums – players who really give the songs a different sensibility than some of the other groups that Dexter Gordon would use in Europe – and Gordon seems to respond with maybe even more sense of strength in his solo work too. The recording quality is excellent – done by Dutch jazz radio in the 60s – and the set features long takes on "Stanley The Steamer", "Dexter's Deck", "In The Cave", "Body & Soul", "Yesterdays", and "I Wanna Blow Now" – plus a few spoken introductions by Dex, who even calls out the groove on the final track.

✨✧ Masahiko Togashi, Steve Lacy, Don Cherry, & Dave HollandLive At Yubin Chokin Kaikan Hall, Tokyo – May 14, 1986 ... LP
Victory (Italy), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic all-star quartet – performing here in a concert that's full of surprises, and which really opens up the best aspects of all the musicians at this point in their career! There's definitely some of the freer improv you might expect, but the music also has some more rhythmic, swinging passages too – very much part of that legacy that Don Cherry explored in the 70s, and always with the wider ears for different sounds that he brought into the mix – served up in part by the very creative work on drums and percussion by Masahiko Togashi! Togashi can be free one minute, swing the next – and both the bass of Dave Holland and pocket of Don Cherry really respond to the changes – with the soprano sax of Steve Lacy maybe holding its own in a very special space. Cherry also plays a bit of piano, and titles include "Mopti", "Quakes", "Luna Turk", "The Crust", and "I Speak To The Star Last Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Howard RileyThree Is One ... CD
Asc, 2007. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A really inventive record from British avant piano legend Howard Riley – and that's saying a lot, as Riley is always pretty darn inventive! The set follows on a mode that Howard first begun during the 70s – and uses overdubbing to record him working on three different pianos as a trio – the first as if it was improvising solo, very freely; the second as a reaction to the movements of the first; and the third in the right channel as it responds to the overall picture in sound! The result is great – very rich, and very cohesive – and the album really stands every bit as strongly with some of the classics in Riley's catalog over the years. Titles include "Unbeatable", "Three Is One", "Haunted", "Heroes", "Confessing", and "Familiar Strangers". CD

✨✧ Kamaal WilliamsWu Hen ... CD
Black Focus, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Keyboardist Kamaal Williams is light years ahead of his first record here – and that's saying a lot, as that album was already pretty darn far-reaching! The music still has plenty of Fender Rhodes and keyboards, and other jazz elements that include tenor from Quinn Mason – but the overall sound is much more cosmic and complex, especially in the rhythms – which often seem to be responding to organic pulsations or magnetic shifts. Not that the album doesn't swing at points – because it definitely does – but as Kamaal states proudly in the notes, "you are now listening to and supporting an original movement from the London underground" – a comment that we couldn't have put better ourselves! The set also features great drums from Greg Paul, strings from Miguel Atwood Ferguson, harp from Alina Bzhezhinska, and a bit of vocals from Lauren Faith – on titles that include "Street Dreams", "Toulouse", "Big Rick", "Pigalle", "Early Prayer", "One More Time", "1989", and "Save Me".

✨✧ Anita O'DayCool Heat – Anita O'Day Sings Jimmy Guiffre Arrangements ... LP
Verve, 1959. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very cool work from Anita O'Day – a session cut with Jimmy Giuffre arrangements, in a style that's a bit different than some of her other 50s work for Verve! Jimmy brings a nice touch of modernism to the record – casting the horns in ways that show his own love of creative colors and careful phrasing, which makes for a bit more sensitivity than you'd hear on some of her dates with Billy May. Anita really responds to this shift with her vocals – stepping around the tunes carefully, and seeming to slide in alongside Giuffre's horn charts in a really fresh way. The vibe's a bit like that of June Christy on Capitol with Pete Rugolo – which is a great recommendation to us – and titles include "Hershey Bar", "A Lover Is Blue", "Mack The Knife", "You're A Clown", and "Orphan Annie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur BlytheElaborations/Light Blue/Put Sunshine In It ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of 80s albums from saxophonist Arthur Blythe – brought together in a 2CD set! First up is Elaborations – a beautiful moment in which the loft jazz generation really got a chance to shine in the mainstream – and mostly without any sense of overdone attempts at commercialization! The album's a great summation of all the ideas that reedman Arthur Blythe was cooking up in the 70s underground – performed here with a hip group that includes Blythe on alto, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Abdul Wadud on cello, Bobby Battle on drums, Bob Stewart on tuba, Wilbur Morris on bass, and Mohammad Abdullah on congas – some of them players who you might never have expected to be recording for Columbia Records! And yet the setting of the record doesn't interfere with their creativity at all – and instead, really seems to give Blythe and the group the sort of focus that only makes their ideas even better – on titles that include "Elaborations", "Metamorphosis", "Sister Daisy", "Shadows", and "The Lower Nile". Light Blue is a wonderful record from saxophonist Arthur Blythe – a set that features his group working through a number of tunes by Thelonious Monk – but with very different arrangements and instrumentation that change things up completely! The set came at a time when Monk was receiving a lot of new attention in the world of jazz, and at a time when Arthur's star had risen too – and the meeting of forces is wonderful – as Blythe brings all sorts of new rhythms and tonal combinations to play with familiar tunes that really transform in the process. The group is a familiar one for Blythe – and features Abdul Wadud on cello, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Bobby Battle on drums! And while you might scratch your head at the tuba, the instrument is often used in ways that might follow older bassline styles – but with a quality that bridges the alto and cello in a great way. Titles include "Nutty", "Coming On The Hudson", "Light Blue", "Epistrophy", and "We See". Put Sunshine In It is a record that really seems to live up to its title – as the sound here is maybe a little bit sunnier than on some of Arthur Blythe's previous albums! The record features heavy contributions from Todd Cochran – aka Bayete – who plays keyboards on most numbers, and introduces more of an electric vibe to the album than previous Blythe outings. The style isn't entirely fusion, but it's definitely warm and sunny – and Arthur responds as such with his solo work – a tight tighter and less edgey, but still nicely soulful. The album features a nice remake of the tune "Sentimental Walk" – from the movie Diva – plus the tracks "Uptown Strut", "Silhouette", "Put Sunshine In It", and "Tumalalumah". CD

✨✧ Rosemary ClooneySwing Around Rosie (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Coral/Verve, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rosie's always been a heck of a jazz singer, but she doesn't always get to show her chops on record – which is why this late 50s session is such a treat! Backings are by the Buddy Cole trio (with Buddy on both piano and organ!) – a now-forgotten group that were frequently called upon in the 50s to do mellower small group backing for famous singers. The setting is a nice easy one, and Rosie responds wonderfully with some incredibly well-ranged vocals – on numbers that include "Goody Goody", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "A Touch Of The Blues", "Blue Moon", "Too Close For Comfort", and "I Wish I Were In Love Again".

✨✧ Dave ThompsonGoldmine Jazz Album Price Guide – 3rd Edition ... Book
Goldmine, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overstuffed edition of the Goldmine Jazz Price Guide – filled with great information! First off – forget the prices in this one, because we hate price guides, and we don't suggest that they actually have any correspondence to the real world – because people buy records at all different prices, for different reasons. HOWEVER, this is a great little book filled with useful data on jazz releases – and we find it to be an excellent resource when we need to look up details of work by specific artists – maybe more like a discography than an actual guide to pricing records. The book does have some holes and mistakes – but there's a heck of a lot of useful information in here, especially if you have questions like "What year did that come out?", "What label was that on?", "Which record was first in his career?" We're surprised at how many listings we can find for key albums – and the book's especially helpful for figuring out releases that seem to have a sly history of reappearing on the market! There's also a helpful section on different jazz labels and pressings, and the book is 506 pages, softcover, with lots of black and white illustrations – and listings for over 40,000 titles! Book

✨✧ Daniel Carter & Matthew ShippDark Matrix ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 2020. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Dark sonic interplay between a really wonderful duo – Matthew Shipp on piano and Daniel Carter on a range of horns – alto, tenor, and soprano saxes – plus clarinet and trumpet too! The shifting mix of Carter's instrumentation is matched by a never-ending flow of imagination from the fingers of Shipp – often moving fast, with that sense of freedom that marked his earlier work – but circling back to some of the more sense-making moments that have graced his more mature recordings in recent years! Both players have a great ear for the other – it's very hard to say who's leading or who's responding – and titles include "Element", "Landing Takeoff", "Dark Matrix", and "The Will To The Form". CD

✨✧ Adam Cooper & Nile Southern (editors)Chicago 1968 – The Whole World Is Watching (hardcover) ... Book
Hat & Beard, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful expansion of a famous moment in creative journalism – the famous 1968 issue of Esquire magazine that featured William S Burroughs, Terry Southern, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Genet, and Abbie Hoffman at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago! The results of that tumultuous event have been well-documented – but the special selection of correspondents was very unique – and was also documented heavily by photographer Michael Cooper. Cooper's shots appeared in the large special issue of the magazine in 1968 – but this book expands way past those shots, with dozens more taken at the time – showing the conflict in the street, the literary figures in action, and everything else that was happening at the time. The book includes expanded writings by Southern, too – and has a great balance of text and image, with 130 pages that mix black and white photos with writings. Book
