Rufus HarleyCourage – The Complete Atlantic Recordings ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.98
A treasure trove of music from one of the hippest jazz players ever – the legendary Rufus Harley, a saxophonist by trade, but one who could also play the bagpipes as well! Harley had a really unique way of using the bagpipes as a free-flowing modal soloing instrument – one that's clearly influenced by the best work of John Coltrane in the early 60s, and which really takes the instrument back to its original pre-Scottish roots in Africa! This wonderful set brings together 4 of Harley's best albums ever – Bagpipe Blues, Tribute To Courage, Kings/Queens, and Scotch & Soul – all gems recorded for Atlantic Records in the 60s, and which are presented here with 2 bonus tracks as well! Harley plays both bagpipes and saxophone on the record – the latter in a way that's equally compelling as the former – and the 2CD set features a whopping 28 tracks in all, supported by liner notes and other details. Titles include "Ali", "Where Have All The Flowers Gone", "Pipin The Blues", "Sufur", "Scotch & Soul", "Feeling Good", "Taurus The 20th", "Bagpipe Blues", "Kerry Dancers", "More", "Sunny", "A Tribute To Courage", "About Trane", "Eight Miles High", and "Love Is Blue".

✨✧ Sonny Stitt with Rufus Harley & Robin KenyattaDeuces Wild ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A great little Sonny Stitt album – very different than any of his other sets from the 60s! The album has a number of interesting aspects – from hard-wailing organ by Wilmer Mosby (who we think is Don Patterson under a fake name), to some screaming guest work by Rufus Harley and Robin Kenyatta. Sonny and Kenyatta sound especially great together, and on the track "In The Bag" Stitt's alto blends right in with Kenyattas, for an hard-wailing sound that's enough to shatter your windows, glasses, and contact lenses. Harley's work is equally great on the cut "Pipin The Blues", and with Sitt playing the sax parts, Rufus is free to really work those jazz bagpipes! Other tracks include "Deuces Wild", "Blues Ahead", and "Sittin In With Stitt". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannFamily Of Mann/Wailing Dervishes ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
2 very unusual albums from Herbie Mann. On Family Of Mann, Herbie plays a variety of flutes, in a variety of strange instrumental sessions on this vaguely exotic album from the early 60s. Some of the cuts have some slight Latin elements, and a bit of Latin percussion, and others have a bit more of a mystical feel. Dave Pike plays vibes, Ray Barretto's on congas, and Herbie plays a bunch of strange flutes! Titles include "Guinean", "The Puppet", "Shein Vi Di Levone", and "Moanin". Wailing Dervishes is even better – one of the best Herbie Mann albums from the 60s, and a very cool live set that features some great guest work by Rufus Harley – playing his usual crazy soul jazz bagpipes – plus nice work by Roy Ayers and Reggie Workman. Added to the mix are some crazy Middle Eastern percussionists – and the tracks are nice and long with a hauting modal feel. Titles include "Wailing Dervishes", "Flute Bag", "In the Medina", and "Armenian Lullaby". CD

VariousBlack Roots – Funky & Abstract Directions In Jazz 1965 to 1975 ... CD
Atlantic/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Some of the hippest jazz tracks ever recorded by Atlantic Records – a great blend of numbers that mixes together modal groovers, funky jams, and hard-hitting soul jazz tracks! The music here nicely steps around a number of different styles, and a number of different artists – and represents the cooler side of the Atlantic jazz catalog – instead of some of their better-known, crossover hits – mixed with a few funk and soul numbers too! The set was compiled by London DJ Russ Dewbury – and he did an excellent job of dipping into all the right parts of the Atlantic catalog, and timed out the set so that the cuts fit together extremely well. Titles include "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Dr John, "Jagger The Dagger" by Eugene McDaniels, "It's Your Thing" by Shirley Scott, "See Line Woman" by Yusef Lateef, "Mean Greens" by Eddie Harris, "The Windjammer" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Root" by Roland Kirk, "The Fakir" by Duke Pearson, "Witchi Tai To" by Jim Pepper, "Sufur" by Rufus Harley, and "Foxy Brown" by David Newman.

✨✧ Laurie AndersonBig Science ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences that would mire down performance art in years to come. Instead, she's got a clean, clear style that's simply amazing – spoken passages that are poetic and pointed, but which also have a slight undercurrent of wit – a charming quality that never takes itself too seriously, even when the sounds and styles are somewhat dark. Instrumentation includes some great rhythm passages from David Van Tieghem, plus surprising performances from Rufus Harley on bagpipes and George Lewis on trombone. Titles include "From The Air", "Big Science", "O Superman", "Born Never Asked", "Walking & Falling", "Example #22", "Let X = X", and "It Tango". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light ring and edge wear.)

✨✧ Sonny RollinsCutting Edge ... LP
Milestone, 1974. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An underrated 70s effort from Sonny Rollins, featuring him fronting a dynamite group with Stanley Cowell and Mtume at the height of their Afro-centric electric jazz period. Longtime sideman Bob Cranshaw plus David Lee round out the rhythm section, and this is one of Rollins' LPs featuring the excellent Japanese guitarist Masuo, plus Rufus Harley guests on one number, so you can guess this is one righteous affair. Rollins sounds awesome, laying extended solos over some tremendous funky vamps by the group on numbers like "The Cutting Edge" and "First Moves", and working in a more contemplative vein on "To A Wild Rose" and "A House Is Not A Home". Also includes a lengthy take on "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFor JC – Love Is Supreme – Free Spirits Vol 2 ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2006. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
70s spiritual soul jazz lives again – in this righteous tribute to the late John Coltrane! The incredible collection is filled with wonderful tracks both classic and current – and is a great bridge between the first waves of this kind of music at the end of the 60s, and the contemporary revival that's been going on at a global level! Perhaps the best thing here is the way that there's no apparent difference in sound or style between the old and new cuts – and the folks at Free Spirits have really found a way to make the whole thing flow together wonderfully by selecting music that's deeply soulful, extremely positive, and filled with soaring vocals and instrumental solos! Titles include "Mode For Trane" by Billy Gault, "Naima" by Mark De Clive-Lowe, "A Love Supreme" by Rufus Harley, "John Coltrane's A Love Supreme" by Karin Krog & Nils Lindberg, "Duke & Trane" by Haikki Samarto Ensemble, "John Coltrane" by Our Cry For Peace (Dwight Trible/Build An Ark), "Prince Of Peace" by Pharoah Sanders, "Liberation Of The Spirit" by Kamau Daaood, "Naima" by 4 Hero, and "A Love Supreme" by Dwight Trible.
