Tete MontoliuBoleros ... CD
Ensayo/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A set that's filled with some really wonderful rhythms – and a record that captures Spanish pianist Tete Montoliu at his best! The session features Tete's piano in a familiar trio setting, but one that's also augmented with congas too – which creates some strong Latin undercurrents, in ways that really suit the bolero tunes chosen for the date! Overall, the set's much more lively than some of his later work – especially some of his overly formulaic trio sides – and the Latin-tinged grooves open up the tracks with bright vistas of warm emotion, all the soulful depth that Montoliu shows when he's at the top of his game. Titles include "Piel Canela", "Sabra Dios", "Siboney", "Somos", "Somos Novios", and "Sabor A Mi". CD

✨✧ Tete MontoliuHot House (Catalonian Fire/Tete) ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1974. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Two 70s albums back to back in one package – both great examples of the genius of Spanish pianist Tete Montoliu! Catalonian Fire is filled with the kind of quick-witted piano work we've really come to admire from Tete Montoliu – who really hits a new level of genius on his 70s recordings for the Steeplechase label! Montoliu has this amazing way of hitting hard, with a real edge – then laying back and just letting things flow – kind of a shift between left and right hand emphasis that really makes for some breathtaking runs on the keyboard – especially with backing here from Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. Tracks are nice and long, and titles include "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Blues For Perla", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Old Folks". The album Tete is bold, beautiful piano work from the mighty Tete Montoliu – working here at the height of his powers, in a killer trio with Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Albert Tootie Heath on drums! The record soars right from the start – thanks to a sublime reading of "Giant Steps" that brings in all the sheets of sound that Coltrane intended for the tune, but also a freewheeling, highly punctuated groove that really sets fire to the piano! Other tunes are equally important jazz standards – like "Body & Soul", "Solar", and "Hot House" – all handled with Tete's amazing approach to the keys. CD

Tete MontoliuSecret Love ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99 About December 21, 2022
Pianist Tete Montoliu gets some Cedar Walton backing here – in a trio with Sam Jones on bass and Billy Higgins on drums – both musicians who really make the record stand out from the pack! Tete himself is at the peak of his powers – able to play with this commanding sense of majesty from the very first note – but with a style that also has plenty of room for more lyrical flourishes, too – although often with these soulful strides that we don't seem to hear that well in other trio sessions of this vintage! We're not going to credit Jones and Higgins with bringing this on – but heck, they sound wonderful here, and really make the whole thing crackle with warm imagination throughout. Titles include "Four", "Stella By Starlight", "Secret Love", and "Confirmation". CD

Tete MontoliuTemas Latinoamericanos ... CD
Ensayo/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet Latin grooves from this legendary Spanish pianist – a set that has Tete Montoliu reworking older Latin standards with a quartet that includes bass, drums, and tumbas! The style is a bit unusual – in that most tracks feature three songs wrapped together in one performance – shifting between musical themes as Tete plays on, but in a way that's slightly different from the standard medley format. Instead, the work is almost a freewheeling extrapolation of these older classics – done in a way that has Tete so familiar with them, he can open up freely in new directions. Themes include "Frenesi", "Maria Elena", "Quizas Quizas Quizas", "Amor Mio", "Tres Palabras", "La Puerta", and "Perfida". CD

Lucky Thompson & Tete Montoliu TrioSoul's Nite Out ... CD
Ensayo (Spain), 1970. Used ... $14.99
Saxophonist Lucky Thompson recorded some of his greatest work overseas – and although he returned to recording in America in the late 60s, he still got a chance to cut this great date over in Spain at the start of the 70s – a lovely little album with backing from the trio of pianist Tete Montoliu! The style here is still more Lucky's than Tete's – but there's also a nice balance between the two players that makes the set one of the most interesting in the Montoliu catalog at the time, and a continuing demonstration of the soulful but oft-overlooked talents of Thompson! The rest of the group features Eric Peter on bass and Peer Wyboris on drums – and titles include "Spanyola", "The World Awakes", "Soul's Nite Out", "When Sunny Is Blue", "Spanish Rails", and "Soul Carnival".

Ben Webster &Tete Montoliu TrioGentle Ben ... CD
Ensayo/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Ben Webster didn't record much on our shores in the 60s and 70s – but overseas, he cut a number of really wonderful albums in the final years of his life – most of them really special sessions like this, which take his amazing tone and set it up in ways that really help it open up! That's definitely the case here – as Ben blows tenor with the excellent trio of pianist Tete Montoliu – which features Eric Peter on bass and Peer Wyboris on drums – really stretching out on some nicely long tracks. Webster and Montoliu both get plenty of room to solo strongly – and titles include "Ben's Blues", "My Nephew Bent", "Did You Call", "Don't Blame Me", "Barcelona Shout", "How Long Has This Been Going On", and "The Man I Love".

✨✧ Tete MontoliuBlues For Myself ... CD
Ensayo/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really lovely work from pianist Tete Montoliu – the kind of subtly soulful session that makes his work of the 70s such a treat for those in the know! The trio here is Tete's group with Eric Peter on bass and Peer Wyboris on drums – both musicians who've been with Montoliu for a number of years by this date, and who really have this great way of matching the leader's blend of lyrical inflections and deeper currents – one of those rare trio pairings where every member of the group is crucial to the sound! There's an up-close approach to the recording that definitely lives up to the "myself" promise in the title – but things are also never sleepy, or too introspective – as Tete moves way past any cliched "blues"-titled sessions, with material that includes "Jimmy's Tempo", "Blues For Coltrane", "It Could Happen To You", and "Blues For Corien".

Anthony BraxtonIn The Tradition Vol 2 ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99 19.99
Wonderful work from Anthony Braxton – an album that has him playing straight ahead jazz – but at a time when he was also making some of his most complex recordings of the 70s! The approach here is sublime – as Braxton's reputation has ears already anticipating some far-out playing, but then marvel at his restraint – his care for keeping alto and bass clarinet work inside a straight jazz tradition, yet always hinting at the modern inflections he can bring to his music! Tunes are almost all jazz standards, blown beautifully – with a tone that's crisp, cool, and very inviting – surprisingly soulful, and never cold at all – matched well with the rhythm trio of Tete Montoliu on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Donna Lee", "My Funny Valentine" and "Half Nelson". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill EvansSome Other Time – The Lost Session From The Black Forest ... CD
Resonance, 1968. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
Never-heard studio work from the great Bill Evans – not another one of those many (and great) live performances from overseas – but a well-conceived, beautifully recorded set of tracks that were done for MPS Records in their famous studios in the Black Forest! The group here is Evans sublime trio with the great Eddie Gomez on bass and a young Jack DeJohnette on drums – perfect players for completely reworking the sound of the jazz piano trio, with all the new ideas that Bill had bursting forth at the time – and this material is the only studio session by the group, recorded right after their famous live appearance at Montreux in 1968 (documented on a well-known album on Verve.) The set's a double-length outing – recorded with the kind of crisp, clear sound that MPS brought to its other classic piano albums of the time by artists like Hampton Hawes or Tete Montoliu. The whole thing's wonderful – and Gomez has a wonderful presence in the mix – as the trio really shines on titles that include "Wonder Why", "Green Dolphin Street", "These Foolish Things", "Walkin Up", "Turn Out The Stars", "Very Early", "You Go To My Head", "Lover Man", and "Baubles Bangles & Beads".

Ben WebsterLive At The Haarlemse Jazzclub ... CD
Cat (Netherlands), 1972. Used ... $6.99 8.99
Ben Webster plays live in Harlem – not the uptown scene in New York, but the Dutch city that became a surprisingly strong showcase for American players overseas! The date's got that easygoing style of some of Webster's best late live performances – a laidback rhythm trio, and Ben himself blowing these raspy, blue-tinged notes that are full of feeling – even when in a familiar setting – that quality that can make even subtle handling of a standard pop out with such Webster-like charm! The group features Tete Montoliu on piano, Rob Langereis on bass, and Tony Inzalaco on drums – and titles include "Stardust", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Sunday", "For All We Know", and "Perdido".
