✨✧ JD AllenLove Stone ... CD
Savant, 2018. Used ... $12.99
A beautiful album of ballads from tenor saxophonist JD Allen – one that could easily fit alongside classic 60s sessions in a similar mode! Allen's always been a dynamic player, but here he's got this nicely understated approach – one that really stuns us with the richness of his tenor sound, which maybe goes even deeper than in more dexterous settings – as he really takes his time to open up and explore the best corners of the album's well-chosen array of standards. The group features beautiful guitar from Liberty Ellmann – who rings out sparely next to Allen, ala Barney Kessel in the 50s – and the quartet also features bass from Gregg August and drums from Rudy Royston. Titles include "Prisoner Of Love", "Stranger In Paradise", "Why Was I Born", "You're My Thrill", "Come All Ye Fair & Tender Ladies", and "Until The Real Thing Comes Along". CD

JD AllenThis ... CD
Savant, 2023. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
We're not entirely sure what happened to saxophonist JD Allen in recent years – but he's become an even bolder, more experimental player in his music – really augmenting an already-great legacy of albums with fresh new projects like this! The album continues that darker, more powerful approach that Allen has brought to recent records – and also takes it into new territory too, as he works in a lean trio with Gwilym Jones on drums and Alex Bonney on electronics and effects – the latter of which are used in these ways that are really subtle, but really great – shaping things almost in the background while Allen delivers searing tenor parts over the top! The set was recorded in London, and maybe catches some fire from the current experiments on that scene – on titles that include "The Revelator", "Know Dogs Allowed", "The Night Of Swords", "See It Say It Sorted", "Boom Bap", and "This".

Joe ChambersJoe Chambers Moving Picture Orchestra – Live At Dizzy's Club Coca Cola ... CD
Savant, 2012. Used ... $6.99 9.99
The genius of Joe Chambers knows no bounds – and record after record, his recent stretch has really continued to blow our mind! Chambers was always a hell of a talent back in the day – even at his start as a 60s Blue Note sideman – but in the past decade or so, he's really found his voice – and shows a talent for larger-concept projects that's really amazing – such as this project with his Moving Pictures Orchestra! The group's a largeish jazz ensemble with some top-shelf players – and they work together on Chambers arrangements that definitely have a cinematic feel – but there's also a richer jazz-based approach too – one that almost reminds us of classic charts from Gil Evans or Ralph Burns. Players include Craig Handy on tenor and soprano sax, David Weiss and Frank Greene on trumpets, Conrad Herwig and Steve Davis on trombones, Xavier Davis on piano, Steve Berrios on percussion, Dwayne Burno on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums and vibes. Titles include the "Moving Pictures Suite", plus "Lonesome Lover", "Power To The People", "Theme From M Squad", and "Mendacity" – which features vocals from Nicole Guiland. CD
(Please note that radio call letters are written in big font on the booklet cover and CD – priced accordingly.)

Jim SnideroFor All We Know ... CD
Savant, 2024. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A beautifully stripped-down set from saxophonist Jim Snidero – one that has him working in a trio, with excellent rhythm from Peter Washington on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums! Both Washington and Farnsworth are nicely understated – perfect in the way they contribute, but also really able to let Snidero set the tone for each of the tracks – blowing these long, beautiful solos that have a raspy edge, and maybe a bit more current of soul than some of his other recent recordings – even though those have all been pretty darn great as well! Titles include a great reading of "Naima", with superb bass by Washington – plus "You Go To My Head", "Love For Sale", "Blackberry Winter", "For All We Know", and "Parker's Mood". CD

✨✧ Conrad HerwigLatin Side Of McCoy Tyner ... CD
Savant, 2024. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trombonist Conrad Herwig has a great way of reworking older jazz tunes with a bold Latin Jazz vibe – a project he's done with the music of Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, and others – and which here really explodes with a great soulful sensibility on the music of McCoy Tyner! Given the oft-modal, inherently rhythmic quality of most of Tyner's music, the match is a perfect one – carried off here with a core group that's really wonderful – Craig Handy on tenor and baritone, Alex Norris on trumpet, Bill O'Connell on piano, Ruben Rodriguez on bass, Robby Ameen on drums,a nd Camilo Molina on congas – plus guest piano from Eddie Palmieri on just one track (despite his name being large on the cover!) Conrad is the core throughout, and his trombone solos have a way of linking the modes of older Latin greats like Barry Rogers with the hardbop and spiritual jazz currents in the music. Titles include "Fly With The Wind", "Passion Dance", "Reaching Fourth", "Blues On The Corner", "Mellow Minor", and "Search For Peace". CD

✨✧ Jerry BergonziExtra Extra ... CD
Savant, 2023. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The rich tenor sound of Jerry Bergonzi sounds wonderful here – set up strongly next to the guitar work of Sheryl Bailey, a player with a loose, open style that really mixes well with Jerry's own! The duo have a way of really moving past any familiar guitar/tenor pairing – into a world of colors and flowing tones that's completely captivating throughout, and delivered in a way that makes us fans of Bergonzi all over again, constantly amazed at his ability to open up different chapters in his career, while never failing to deliver the goods. The lineup also features Phil Grenadier on trumpet, Harvie S on bass, and Luther Gray on drums – and titles include "Obama", "Czech Mate", "Double Billed", "Extra Extra", "Loudzee", "Separated", and "The Truth".

✨✧ Nicole GloverNicole Glover Plays ... CD
Savant, 2024. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Nicole Glover's a hell of a tenorist – one with a deep, rich tone, but also lots of modern edges too – able to spin out really long, imaginative solos in a style that's almost at the level of vintage Sonny Rollins, especially given that the setting here is a trio on half the album! Nicole blows alongside the bass of Tyron Allen and drums of Kayvon Gordon, players who keep things loose and very open – so that Glover has all this space to express herself with a very unique voice. And half the record also features vibes from the great Steve Nelson – who seems to have some bolder, harder tones in his instrument to match Glover's energy. Titles include "Munsoon", "Inception", "Blues For Mel", "One Second Please", "The Fox", and "Open Or Close". CD

✨✧ Ray Mantilla & The New Space StationMan-Ti-Ya ... CD
Savant, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful wonderful work from percussionist Ray Mantilla – and a record that we like as much as any of his classic work from years back! The set features Ray leading a group that's equal parts jazz and Latin – with Willie Williams on soprano and tenor saxes, Enrique Fernandez on baritone and flute, and Guido Gonzalez on trumpet – all coming together in warm, chromatic lines that quickly spin off into some really nice solos. Cedar Walton produced the set, and somehow manages to leave a bit of his warmth in the recording – and titles include "Hop Scotch", "Mother's Day", "Apple Turnover", "African Holiday", "Eight Ball", "Mantillion", and "TBA".

✨✧ JD AllenGrace ... CD
Savant, 2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sharp tenor from the great JD Allen – a very striking set that's filled with all original compositions – work that really shows the way that Allen's grown strongly as both a writer and player in recent years! There's a sense of darkness to the record right from the start – a brooding intensity that finds a way to both move forward and fold back on itself – this kind of elliptical mode that's very compelling, and brought into strong focus by a quartet that features Eldar Djangirov on piano, Dezron Douglas on bass, and Jonathan Barber on drums. Titles include "Grace", "Chagall", "Load Star", "Cross Damon", "Detroit", "Mass", and "The Little Dipper". CD

✨✧ JD AllenMatador & The Bull ... CD
Savant, 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
The title's not a metaphoric one – or at least not entirely so, as this set of original tracks by JD Allen draws strong inspiration from the art of bullfighting – but then also moves on to deeper musings on movement and choice – cast out perfectly by the expert trio on the set! Allen's tenor is already dynamic enough – but it's really set fire here by the bass of Gregg August and drums of Rudy Royston, who propel the original compositions with a deep sense of color and soul that really matches JD's horn – the kind of tenor trio effort that hearkens back to the initial late 50s experiments in the format by Sonny Rollins, but grows to encompass all the changes that have taken place since then! Titles include "Paseillo", "Cathedral", "Suite Of Lights", "Ring Shout", and "Muleta". CD

Savant, 2014. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sparkling piano from Bruce Barth – set up nicely in a group that also features Steve Nelson on vibes and Terell Stafford on trumpet and flugelhorn! Both players bring in some darker edges that round out the sound nicely – mixing with Barth's lyrical lines on keys, which dance magically to rhythmic accompaniment from Vincente Archer on bass and Montez Coleman on drums. Nelson's especially expressive here – and although he drops out for three of the album's ten tracks, he still really helps shape the overall vibe of the record. Titles include "Vamonos", "Moon Shadows", "Brasilia", "Daybreak", "Triste", "Tuesday's Blues", and "In The Still Of The Night". CD

Savant, 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
Giacomo Gates affectionately and effectively steers the work of the toughest and most sharply unique songwriters of our time and into straight-forward jazz vocal territory – and it's works really well! The backing is done by a stripped down combo who lay down guitar, bass, drums and piano – with sax and flute on a couple. Gates' husky baritone is well suited to the material and the it's well chosen set list, which includes "Show Bizness", "Lady Day And John Coletrane", "Winter In America", "Is That Jazz", "New York City", "It's Your World", "Madison Avenue" and "Legend In His Own Mind". 10 tracks in all.

Savant, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
The DOG here stands for drums, organ, and guitar – played, in order, by Cecil Brooks II, Kyle Koehler, and Matt Chertkoff – a hip little trio that definitely lives up to the groove we've come to expect from Brooks! Years back, when first recording for Muse Records, Brooks really won us over as a real traditionalist in the soul jazz mode – a 90s artist who could still hang onto the best energy of the 60s Prestige Records sound. And all these many years later, Cecil's still one of the best cats to come up with that sound – heard here in a really cooking blend of Hammond, guitar, and drums – all recorded live at Brooks' own club in New Jersey – a spot that holds onto the long Garden State tradition of heavy Hammond grooves. Titles include "Tu Tu", "Theme From Mannix", "Sunny", "Hey Joe", "Penn Relays", "Don't Know Why", and "They Long To Be Close To You". CD

✨✧ Jim Snidero with Kurt RosenwinkelFar Far Away ... CD
Savant, 2023. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record that seems to bristle with color and life throughout – a surprisingly strong pairing of the tenor of Jim Snidero and the guitar of Kurt Rosenwinkel – the latter of whom seems to have a bit more bite than usual, but also seems to infect Snidero's horn with his innate sense of color! The rest of the lineup is equally great – a superb core trio with Orrin Evans on piano, Peter Washington on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and the blend of Farnsworth and Evans seems to bring in a new freshness to each of them as well. Titles include "Obsession", "Pat", "Nowhere To Hide", "Little Falls", "Search For Peace", "Infinity", and "Far Away". CD
