Stan TraceyFrom Stan With Love (With Love From Jazz/We Love You Madly) ... CD
Lansdowne/Resteamed (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 24.99
Two fantastic albums from the great British pianist Stan Tracey – both the kind of material that has made him one of our favorite players of that scene in the 60s! First up is With Love From Jazz – a beautifully bold statement from the Stan Tracey Quartet – one of the group's key recordings of the 60s, and a wonderful document of the talents of tenorist Bobby Wellins! During the 60s, Tracey and Wellins worked together like the team of Monk and Charlie Rouse – crafting a groove that was as soulful as it was angular – filled with feeling and life, and at once willing to explore the outer reaches of jazz, yet never going too far as to lose its humanity. Yet Wellins and Tracey were no simple Monkish pair – as heard on this set from 1967, a suite of tracks composed by Stan, and featuring him on celeste and vibes as well as his usual piano. The rhythms are increasingly complex as the set moves on – taking the angularities of Tracey's 50s work, and inflecting them with a sense of exploratory energy that really moves the style into a whole new level – one that's wonderfully dynamic, and filled with a freshness that still resonates strongly today. Titles include "Three Times Loser Three Times Bluser", "Undercover Lover", "Amoroso Only Moreso", "Two Part Intention", "Sweet Used To Be", and "Love Now Weep Later" – all of which sound much better than their hokey titles! We Love You Madly is Stan Tracey's tribute to the music of Duke Ellington – but a set that's done in a very different way than you might expect – as the music is filled with contributions from all these fantastic British modern soloists, who take things in directions that you really might not expect – as do some of the rhythms, which reflect more of Tracey's territory at times, and really keep things interesting! The set features key soloists on each track – in a lineup that includes Ian Carr on flugelhorn, Joe Harriott on alto, Tony Coe and Don Rendell on tenor, and Tracey himself on piano. Titles include the great original "We Love You Madly" – plus "Lay By", "Blues With A Feeling", "Creole Love Call", "Passion Flower", and "I'm Beginning To See The Light". CD

Stan TraceySound Check – Stan Tracey Duo/Trio ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 2011. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 24.99
Don't let the title put you off, as these aren't tracks recorded at some soundcheck before a gig by British piano legend Stan Tracey – and instead, they're some incredible recordings from late in his career, showing the modernist to be every bit as vibrant as back in the day! CD1 features duets between Stan and son Clark Tracey on drums – a pair who'd been working together for many years by the time of this date, and who have fantastic energy that will instantly blow away any idea of nepotism you might have in mind! Clark is as dynamic on the drums as Stan is on the keys – and the pair work some amazing magic on original tunes that include "Stick Chops", "Foregone Conclusion", "M25", "Curry Favour", "Soundcheck", "Gambons", and "Midnight Around". CD2 features a trio performance, as bassist Andrew Clyndert joins Stan and Clark – as the group move through a mix of wonderfully reworked jazz classics, and a strong tune of Stan's own – titles that include "Lil Ol Pottsville", "Let's Cool One", "Angelica", "Goodbye", "Blue Monk", and "Chelsea Bridge".

Stan TraceyWisdom In The Wings (Free An One/Seven Ages Of Man) ... CD
Lansdowne/Resteamed (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 24.99
Two incredible albums from British pianist Stan Tracey – originally part of the Lansdowne series in the UK! Free An One has a cockney sort of title, but a very modern jazz vibe – one that shows just how much Stan Tracey had grown over the course of the 60s – as the vision here is a huge extension past the Monk/Herbie Nichols sound of his early days – with a strong ear for modal elements in the rhythms at times, mixed with surprisingly sensitive moments that balance things out tremendously! The "One" in the title is alto saxophonist Peter King, who's completely on fire on the record – playing with an edge that makes his performance here one of his greatest moments on record – alongside Stan on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Bryan Spring on drums. Titles include "Free An One", "Nudgy Vamp", "The Green Kingspring Of King Springreen", and "Rainbow At The Five Mile Road". Seven Ages Of Man is an incredible large group performance – led by pianist Stan Tracey, who is really coming into his own both as a composer and a larger jazz visionary – maybe even more important to the British modernist ideal of the late 60s as his earlier contributions were in the 50s! Stan's not just a hell of a pianist, but his overall sense of tone, timing, and color here is amazing – as he moves with a larger group that includes Mike Gibbs and Chris Pyne on trombones, Peter King on alto, Tony Coe on clarinet and tenor, Alan Skidmore on tenor, Ronnie Ross on baritone, Derek Watkins and Tony Fisher on trumpets, and Frank Ricotti on vibes – all tremendous players who effortlessly realize Tracey's ideas on the set. All titles are originals, and titles include "Matinee Days", "Overture & Beginners", "Kindly Leave The Stage", "Wisdom In Th Wings", and "Panto Panta". CD

✨✧ Ronnie Scott with Stan Tracey & Mark MurphyBBC Jazz Club 1964 to 1966 ... CD
1960s (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful music from British tenorist Ronnie Scott – working here in the very familiar setting of the BBC Jazz Club, one that's almost as comfortable for Scott as his own nite spot in Soho! The set presents three different performances recorded for radio – all with the great Stan Tracey on piano – working here at his Monkish best, which brings out a much more modern quality in Ronnie than you might expect if you only know his recordings from the late 50s! Vocalist Mark Murphy also appears on two tracks – again with a quality that is quite advanced, as his work on the UK scene in the 60s really helped Mark pave the way for the vocal advances he'd express in the 70s back in the US. Murphy sings on "Waltz For Debby" and "Music That Makes Me Dance/When She Makes Music" – and other titles include "Sweet Lotus Blossom", "Sweet & Lovely", "Close Your Eyes", "What's New", "The Night Is Young", and "I'll Be Seeing You".

✨✧ Stan TraceyAlice In Jazzland ... CD
Columbia/Resteamed (UK), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the seminal large group dates made in the 60s by British pianist Stan Tracey – and a record that shows a whole new side of his brilliance over and above his already-great solo work! Stan's cooking on all burners here – working with a full ensemble, but managing to keep all the sharp, angular edges of his smaller combo work – a tremendous achievement for any player, but a key moment in the development of the British scene of the 60s. There's a vision here that predates some of the bigger experiments to come in the next few years – and Tracey manages to carry the whole thing off with perfect precision, and none of the overindulgence that might mark some of his followers. Players include Ronnie Scott, Tubby Hayes, and Bobby Wellins on tenor sax, Ian Hamer and Kenny Baker on trumpets, Alan Branscombe on alto, Harry Klein on baritone, and Stan himself on piano – and titles are all original compositions – including "Alice In Jazzland", "Summer Hallucinations", "Murdering The Time", "Pig & Pepper", "Portrait Of A Queen", and "Fantasies In Bloom".

✨✧ Stan TraceyChild's Christmas Jazz Suite ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
British pianist Stan Tracey recorded a famous album in the 60s, based upon a work by Dylan Thomas – and here, he revisits the poet again as inspiration for a jazz record – with results that are equally great as that classic from the past! Despite the title, the record's not entirely a Christmas album – although it does feature some narration from Child's Christmas In Wales – yet the core of the record is the wonderfully swinging modern work by Stan and his combo – almost illuminating Dylan Thomas' story in the way that Vince Guaraldi would illuminate Charles Schultz, but with longer tunes and even bolder musical ideas! Other players include Simon Allen on tenor, Andrew Cleyndert on bass, and Clark Tracey on drums – and titles include "Prothero's Dilemma", "Wagging The Bag", "Easy For Leonardo", "Jinks", and "Pudding & Mince" – most bracketed by some narrated passages from the book.

✨✧ Stan TraceyEarly Works (The Bracknell Connection/Salisbury Suite) ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 1976/1978. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Not the earliest work of pianist Stan Tracey – but two wonderful albums from the 70s, both of which show his mighty talents in the space of a larger group! The Bracknell Connection is one of the greatest post-Landsdowne recordings by British pianist Stan Tracey – a killer large group session that's cut in the best tradition of his best 60s work! Unlike some of Tracey's other 70s sides, which can get a bit too free, this one still has a tight, sharp jazz focus – one that makes Tracey's off-beat playing sound far better than it does in a structure-less setting. The other players in the group are all quite strong too – and soloists include Harry Beckett on trumpet, Peter King on alto, and Art Themin on tenor and soprano. Titles include "Timespring", "Cuddly", and "Agitato Sympatico". Also features a previously unissued track – "Chiffik". Salisbury Suite is another great octet session from Tracey – one that's strongly graced by his tremendous work on piano – forceful, angular, and modern – yet without any of the excesses of some of his solo or trio work of the time! Tracey really seems to come into his own in a larger group recording – keeping his cool enough as a leader, and really setting the tone for the other players – pushing them into hip formation, but always getting them to swing as well. Players include Art Themen on tenor and soprano, Don Weller on tenor, Jeff Daly on alto, Harry Beckett on trumpet, and Malcolm Griffiths on trombone – and titles include "Peg Leg Bates", "Miff", and "Ballad For St Ed".

✨✧ Stan TraceyFlying Pig ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic late record from pianist Stan Tracey – recorded in the second decade of the 21st Century, but awash in all the sharp modern touches of his best early material from the 60s! Stan's leading the group with this effortless sense of groove amidst his own angular modern lines on piano – that balance of swing and constant creativity that soon made Tracey such a standout pianist when he appeared on the British scene – serving up all original compositions that are beautifully illuminated by work on horns from Simon Allen on tenor and alto, and Mark Armstrong on trumpet and flugelhorn. Rhythm is from Andy Cleyndert on bass and Clark Tracey on drums – and the album is rock-solid throughout, with tunes that include "Weary Willie", "Narpoo Rum", "Silent Percy", "Ballad For Loos", and "Bouncing Bertha".

✨✧ Stan TraceyJazz Suite Inspired By Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood ... CD
Columbia/Resteamed (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from one of the greatest European pianists ever! Stan Tracey first made his mark in the Brit bop scene of the late 50s – breaking out with a fresh style that was infused with modern touches of Monk and Tristano – certainly some of the most striking on his side of the Atlantic at the time. By the time of this 1965 album, he'd honed his sound brilliantly – and is working here in quartet formation on a set of original tunes based around Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood. Don't be put off by the source of the album's inspiration, though – as there's no "jazz meets poetry" here, just straight jazz in a fresh modern vein – played by a group that features wonderfully edgey tenor by Bobby Wellins, arcing perfectly with Tracey's angular lines on piano! Drums are by Jackie Dougan, bass is by Jeff Clyne, and the album's one of the key British jazz treasures of the 60s! Titles include "AM Mayhem", "Starless & Bible Black", "Cockle Row", "No Good Boyo", "Penpals", and "Llareggub". CD

✨✧ Stan TraceyLater Works – Hong Kong Suite/Amandla Suite ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 2009. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
British pianist Stan Tracey wrote some fantastic longer-form work for the legendary Lansdowne Series in the UK scene of the 60s – and that compositional imagination kept on going strong over the decades, as you'll hear in these two wonderful pieces from late in his life! The group here is an octet – with a core trio that has Stan in very familiar company, alongside Clark Tracey on drums and Andrew Cleyndert on bass – all illuminated wonderfully by work from Mornington Lockett on tenor and soprano, Simon Allen on tenor, Sammy Mayne on alto, Guy Barker on trumpet, and Mark Nightingale on trombone – all players we don't really know at all, but who bring that same sense of imaginative color to Stan's ideas as some of the more famous British soloists on projects like this from years past. Both works are wonderful – hardly stiff highbrow material at all, and instead pieces that can be enjoyed just as well in terms of their individual tunes – titles that include "Lunar Lanterns", "Moon Cake", "Dragon Boats", "Crackers & Bangers", "Unison", "Building Bridges", "Cuban Connection", and "Humberto's Dream".

✨✧ Stan Tracey & Bobby WellinsTracey/Wellins Play Monk ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 2006. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stan Tracey's love of Thelonious Monk is no surprise – given that Stan's earliest recordings were essentially the British equivalent of Monk's angular experiments back in the 50s! Here, though, Stan revisits the territory of his main muse – but he does so with a slightly different feel, and one that keeps the record from just being a simple rehash of Monk's ideas. The tunes are all by Thelonious, but Stan's presentation of them is nicely personal – a bit more mature and mellowed slightly with age, and done in wonderful tandem with saxophonist Bobby Wellins – as well as bassist Andrew Cleyndert, and drummer Clark Tracey. Titles include "Monk's Mood", "Let's Cool One", "Bright Mississippi", "Locomotive", "Well You Needn't", and "I Mean You". CD

✨✧ Stan Tracey & Keith TippettSupernova ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Previously unreleased work from the twin piano team of Stan Tracey and Keith Tippett – a set that stands very strongly next to their 70s classic TNT, and which comes from a similar period in time! Like that date, this one features the players in a very unstructured setting – working live and improvised in a set of very open-ended tracks – music that's a big change from the more confined styles that Tracey and Tippett used in their own work a decade before, even though that music was already pretty darn modern! Most numbers have some great interplay between the two pianists – playing with a sensitive ear for each others strengths and sounds – and in a space that finds the best sympathies between them. Titles include "Vela Pulsar", "Veil Nebula", "Supernova", "Conjunction", and "Parallax". CD

Ten To Ten (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ben Webster's got some hip company here – a British rhythm section that features Stan Tracey on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Tony Crombie on drums – all of whom provide some great support on this late 60s live date! As with Webster in these later years, there's a wonderful sense of tone that dominates the record – echoes of earlier years at points, but a new humanity that creeps in and really grabs us – a deeply personal style that sparkles especially strongly on the ballads, and even hits a few more modern moments at points. Tracks are shortish – mostly around the 4 or 5 minute mark – so Webster keeps his solos nicely compact – and titles include "What Am I Here For", "Sunday", "Come Sunday", "Johnny Come Lately", "In A Mellotone", "For All We Know", and "The Jeep Is Jumpin".

Resteamed (UK), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare 60s performance from the legendary Ben Webster – working here with superb accompaniment from British piano genius Stan Tracey! Stan's got a bit more edge than some of Ben's usual associates – but that's also matched by that great late life tone that Webster was developing – a bit more rasp and edge, and a sense of imagination that seems effortless as he blows long solos over the extended tracks on the tunes! The rest of the group features Rick Laird on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums – both respectful bandmates to really let Stan and Ben shine in the spotlight, on tunes that include "Sometimes I'm Happy", "C Jam Blues", "Chelsea Bridge", "Poutin", "Over The Rainbow", and "Night In Tunisia".

Prince Lasha EnsembleInsight ... CD
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1966. New Copy ... $6.99 12.98
Tremendous work from the legendary Prince Lasha – a rare UK-only date from 1966 – and one that has the reedman working away from more familiar contemporaries like Sonny Simmons and Eric Dolphy! The approach on this session is very unique – as Lasha includes harp with the instrumentation, played by David Snell in a style that's right up there with Dorothy Ashby's best jazz work. Pianist Stan Tracey is also on board – playing beautiful notes that have a sharp modern edge, while still falling on the inside of the spectrum – and Lasha himself is especially great – blowing plastic alto sax and wooden flute, both of which have a slightly offbeat sound – but one that's surprisingly warm, which makes the album one of his most sensitive and soulful sessions ever! The tunes are a mix of standards and originals – and there's a wonderful sense of balance here – sounds that are sometimes more inside than other records from Lasha, but which have a really Dolphy-like sense of expression – right at home amidst a wider history of jazz, yet also reaching for new ideas at the same time. Pure genius throughout, and a record that was never made available to audiences in the US. Titles include "Nuttin Out Jones", "Impressions Of Eric Dolphy", "Out Of Nowhere", "Just Friends", "Body & Soul", and "Everything Happens To Me". CD

✨✧ VariousJourneys In Modern Jazz – Great Britain 1965 to 1972 ... CD
Universal (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99 36.99
A tremendous tribute to a fantastic moment in jazz – the explosion of new sounds that happened in the British scene from the late 60s onward – a moment of music that barely touched our shores, but which was equally important to the changes taking place in modern jazz in the US! England got on the jazz bandwagon pretty quickly in earlier years – but for decades, most of their music was pretty tied to American styles – ties that broke strongly with work like this – which opened up all these new rhythms, patterns, and possibilities for expression – at a level that the British scene maybe never hit this strongly again! The collection features some incredibly well-chosen tracks that really illustrate the depth of this musical moment – including work from the legendary Landsdowne Series of recordings, and tracks from other labels too – all brought together with detailed notes that really illuminate the music. Titles include "Old San Juan" by Alan Skidmore, "Third Road" by Harry Beckett, "Matinee Days" by Stan Tracey, "Second Coming" by Michael Garrick, "Storm Warning" by Dick Morrissey, "To Segovia" by Mike Taylor, "A Matter Of Time" by Don Rendell, "Brew" by Colin Bates, "With Terry's Help" by John Surman & John Warren, "Waltz" by Mike Westbrook, Greek Variations/VI Kriti (edit)" by Neil Ardley, "Angle" by New Jazz Orchestra, "Don The Dreamer" by Kenny Wheeler & John Dankworth, and "Some Echoes Some Shadows" by Michael Gibbs.

✨✧ Amancio D'SilvaKonkan Dance (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A previously unissued album from Indian guitarist Amancio D'Silva – recorded during his legendary run of work at Lansdowne Studios, but making its first-ever appearance here! The work on the set is every bit as far-reaching and progressive as some of D'Silva's official releases – and like those sides, this one does a tremendous job of blending complicated guitar lines, unusual rhythms, and some super-hip instrumentation! Amancio has a way of playing guitar that's a bit like Gabor Szabo – airy and exotic at times, with a free-flowing quality that's really explored nicely here on the longish tunes on the set. Players include Don Rendell on saxophone, Stan Tracey on piano, and Alan Branscombe on flute, vibes, and electric piano – but best of all is the use of sitar and tabla on the record – often employed sparingly, but in a way that adds some great echoes of Indian music. Titles include "A Street In Bombay", "What Maria Sees", "A Song For Francesca", and "Konkan Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Deram/Vocalion (UK), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really unique little album for Paul Gonsalves – very different than most of his American sessions of the time, and cut in the UK with some very hip accompaniment! The record's got an open, edgey sort of tone – as British modernists that include Stan Tracey on piano and Kenny Wheeler on trumpet come into play with Gonsalves tenor – steeped in tradition on one hand, but easily moving into strange tones and colors that we would have never expected. The album's got one snapping groover that's totally great, called "Almost You", plus some mellower tunes that almost get a bit abstract. Very nice stuff overall, and much more in the Brit 60s tradition of Landsdowne than Gonsalves' own work in the US! Titles include "XOX", "Sticks", "Humming Bird", and "All The Things You Are". CD

Crammed (Belgium), 2021. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 13.98 About October 19, 2021
An album that revolves around a story of sorts – three creatures from a distant time and space come to earth and send their impressions back home – yet manage to do so in a way that resonates strongly with the earlier work we've liked from Batida! The music, as before, is a hybrid of global elements and contemporary electronics – and some of the story is carried by spoken bits that come across like found vocal bits, and give a nice sense of structure to the record – even though they are often altered, and given some sort of "alien" quality in the voice. There's plenty of drum machine work on the record, but there's also lots of vintage sound samples – some from 50s field recordings by Hugh Tracey, others from the International Library Of African music – all used here in really inventive ways. Titles include "Makumba", "Outra Cidade", "The Medium", "Bulubulu", "The Principle", "Quarentena", "The End", and "Falta Muito". CD
