✨✧ Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big BandToshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big Band ... CD
RCA/Novus, Mid 70s. Used ... $6.99
A great introduction to one of the hippest big bands of the 70s – a duo who did for the jazz ensemble mode in their decade what Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland did in the 60s! Tracks include "Studio J", "Quadrille, Anyone", "Kogun", "First Night", and "Road Time Shuffle". CD

Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big BandTales of A Courtesan (Oirantan) ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Toshiko Akiyoshi really took off as a jazz musician in the 70s – already a great pianist known for her bop-like dexterity in the 50s, a compelling soloist and songwriter with her modern sound in the 60s, and a hell of a talent at the helm of a series of amazing big band records with reedman Lew Tabackin! Akiyoshi emerges as a stunning composer, and a great arranger too – able to balance the individual solo voices of the members of the group, while also letting the whole thing open up and soar – bold colors that are cut through nicely by her own solo work in the set! In addition to saxes and flutes from Tabackin, the set also features more saxes from Gary Foster, Bill Perkins, and Dick Spencer – plus trombone from Bill Reichenbach and Britt Woman, and trumpets from Bobby Shew and Mike Price. All tunes are Akiyoshi originals – and titles include "Interlude", "Village", "Road Time Shuffle", and "Tales Of A Courtesan". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has some edge & ring wear.)

Toshiko AkiyoshiTen Gallon Shuffle ... LP
Ascent, 1984. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A hokey title and cover, but a great little record – a lesser-known gem from the Toshiko Akioshi big band, recorded in the mid 80s for Japanese release! Toshiko's still working strongly with reedman Lew Tabackin here – and as always, the sound of the reeds really make the record – not only on the bold ensemble passages, but also on the snakey, well-crafted solos that slide out of the fuller arrangements – letting Lew, Frank Wess, and Jim Snidero contribute some really great work on the longer tracks. Titles include "Ten Gallon Shuffle", "Fading Beauty", "Blue Dream", and "Happy Hoofer" – and in case you're wondering, that's a young Monday Michiru on the cover! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light corner bump and some aging, but looks nice overall.)
