Daggerboard with Henry FranklinDaggerboard & The Skipper ... CD
Wide Hive, 2022. Used ... $7.99
Daggerboard work here with the great west coast bassist Henry Franklin – aka Skipper, which you might know from his famous 70s albums for the Black Jazz label! Franklin's a talent who's been keeping the fires burning for decades on the west coast underground scene – and he's still a hell of a talent, and an equally great composer – as you'll hear here, when Daggerboard really lets him take the lead. If anything, Franklin's bass might be even more upfront in the mix than on some of his own recent albums – and the group's also joined here by the great Roger Glenn on vibes – another older west coast player who delivered a superb 70s album on Fantasy. The group's co-led by Erik Jekabson on trumpet and Gregory Howe on percussion – and some of the tracks also feature some great subtle use of a string quartet too. Titles include "Involuntary Separation", "Skipper's Garden", "Conception Point", "Video Culture", "Seven For Henry", and "Agapanthus". CD

Jake BreaksBreaksy ... CD
Wide Hive, 2021. Used ... $6.99
A great little record that really goes back to the early days of the Wide Hive label – the time when the company emerged as a hotbed of Cali funk, and was less of the jazz imprint it is today! Jake delivers plenty of breaks here on drums – and also turns in a bit of turntable work too – and the group features lots of sweet Fender Rhodes and other keyboards, plus percussion, riffing guitar, and occasional horns too – served up on tunes that are nice and lean, and which mix 70s jazz funk inspiration with a few more contemporary modes too – all without any vocals at all! Titles include "Low Light Bar Scene", "Hyland Green", "Count Me In", "Cosmic Club", "Sliced Bred", "Be Free", and "Day Of The Quika". CD

Roscoe MitchellDots – Pieces For Percussion & Woodwinds ... CD
Wide Hive, 2021. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A really great blend of two different sides of the genius Roscoe Mitchell – his ear for composition, and his strong legacy of solo performance too! The "Pieces" in the title of the set might make you think that Roscoe is delivering one of his ensemble creations from more recent years – but the performance on the record is very much a step back to his early work on the late 60s and 70s – those moments when Mitchell was often at his best exploring sonic space on his own – as he does here on a variety of woodwind and percussion instruments, used in varying ways throughout the recording! Titles include "Glide & Run", "Skip", "Hey", "Light Green", "Vast Horizons", "Let's Go There", "Moving Bell", "Click", and "Now The Color Blue". CD

Phil RanelinLiving In A New Day ... CD
Wide Hive, 2008. Used ... $4.99
Warmly spiritual work from trombonist Phil Ranelin – an album that shows he hasn't missed a beat since his legendary years as part of the 70s Tribe Records scene in Detroit! The record's the first we've heard from Phil in a number of years, and the first since a near-fatal accident that almost took his life (hence the title) – but it's a session that's definitely worth the wait, as Ranelin's got a sound and soulfulness here that's totally great – a really put-together approach to his music that comes through on the very first tune! The players here include some nice surprises – such as vibist Roger Glenn, an overlooked genius from the 70s who shows up on one track – and labelmate Calvin Keys, whose guitar lines are always a great addition to any set. Other musicians include Donald Bailey on drums, Dave Matthews on piano and organ, and Matt Montgomery on bass – and titles include "Livin In A New Day", "Metamorphosis", "Naptown After Noon", "Blue Bossa", "Escapology Maximus", and "Another Kind Of Time & Place". CD also features 2 bonus alternate takes too! CD

✨✧ Calvin KeysBlue Keys ... CD
Wide Hive, 2022. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Guitarist Calvin Keys has really been going strong in recent years, but this album may well be one of the best he's given us in the past decade or so – in part because he's opened the door to some really fantastic guest work on the session! In addition to Calvin's own distinctive guitar lines, the record also features key contributions from Gary Bartz on alto, Steve Turre on trombone, Henry Franklin on bass, and Babatunde Lea on congas – all essential players who rose up in the same generation that gave us Keys' initial recordings, and who really make some great magic here when they get a chance to solo! Other players include some more familiar names from the Wide Hive scene – including Gregory Howe on organ and piano – and titles are all originals by Keys, Franklin, and Howe – with titles that include "Six To Seven", "Blue Keys", "Bk 18", "At Arrival", "Ajafika", and "Peregrines Dive".

✨✧ Roscoe MitchellDiscussions ... CD
Wide Hive, 2017. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's an apt one – as the music here is based on the improvisations from Roscoe Mitchell's earlier Conversations albums – but recast in a whole new way for an improvising orchestra! The group here features Mitchell on sopranino sax – a very strong voice out in the lead – but the larger ensemble really has a lot to add to the sound, in a lineup that includes flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, and oboe – reed elements used by Mitchell as in some of his previous "serious music" experiments – then mixed with violin, viola, electronics, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. The sound is a wonderful bridge between the compositional world of Mitchell and some of his looser small group improvisations – and the album satisfied both sides of that sonic spectrum in a great way. Titles include "Cascade", "Cracked Roses", "Who Dat", "Frenzy House", "Home Screen", and "I'll See You Out There". CD

✨✧ DaggerboardLast Days Of Studio A ... LP
Wide Hive, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record with a really special story, and maybe one of the best sessions we've heard from the gang at Wide Hive in many years! The setting is the legendary Studio A at Fantasy Records – where this unique group recorded the album days before the closing of that storied recording spot – working with a sense of soulful imagination that seems to channel all the greatness of the 70s jazz captured in the spot, with a lean, laidback mode that's completely wonderful all the way through! The group features key work from the mighty Roger Glenn on vibes – an artist who did some of his own great work at Fantasy in the 70s with Larry Mizell – and there's also really wonderful work on tenor and alto from Kasey Knudsen, alongside sounds from Mike Blankenship on Rhodes, and Wide Hive stalwarts Gregory Howe on Hammond B3 and Erik Jekabson on trumpet. All tunes were penned by Howe and Jekabson, and arranged by the latter – and titles include "Journey Down Parker", "Last Days Of Studio A", "Steak Out", "Heroine's Portrait", "Conducting Poppies", and "Rabbit Trap".

✨✧ Roscoe MitchellConversations II – With Craig Taborn & Kikanju Baku ... CD
Wide Hive, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Roscoe Mitchell returns to a mode that he explored freely back in the 70s – loose, improvised collaborations with other musicians – done at a level that offers up a richly organic blend of sonic elements and musical moments! Some of Mitchell's later work has been more structured, but the approach here is very much in the best early AACM mode – or maybe a bit like Roscoe's classic Sackville recordings – extended "conversations" between his own flutes and saxes, the drums and percussion of Kikanju Baku, and the piano, organ, and keyboards of Craig Taborn. All players are nicely restrained – and as with Mitchell and the Art Ensemble, the mix of instruments is never used in any way that's gimmicky at all – but with subtle shifts that really emphasize the need of the players to communicate together. Titles on this second volume include "Frenzy House", "Chipper & Bing", "Stay Hayfer", "They Rode For Them", "Just Talking", "I'll See You Out There", "Next Step", and "Fly Over & Stay Awhile". CD

✨✧ Roscoe MitchellDuets With Tyshawn Shorey & Special Guest Hugh Ragin ... CD
Wide Hive, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very spare sounds from Roscoe Mitchell and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, but still very sharp-edged too – and in a way, a mix of deeper thoughts and spontaneous energy that reminds us a lot of some of the more "out there" moments of the Art Ensemble back in the 70s! Roscoe's reeds have those complex qualities that we've heard in recent compositional work – but the overall approach is a bit looser, too – and clearly dictated by the range of percussion added by drummer Tyshawn Sorey. Trumpeter Hugh Ragin blows a fair bit on the record too – adding in sounds that shift from textural to musical – and overall, it may well be his tracks that we like the best. Titles include "The Horn", "Bells In The Air", "Out There", "A Cactus & A Rose", "Meadows", "A Game Of Catch", "Waves", and "Windows With A View". CD

Nat BirchallUpright Living – Nat Birchall Meets Al Breadwinner ... LP
Ancient Archive Of Sound (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $36.99 49.99
A mighty feather in the cap of UK saxophonist Nat Birchall – and a set that really shows just how much he's opening up his sound in recent years! The set is a second meeting between Birchall and Al Breadwinner – and like the previous, both artists handle a wide range of instrumentation in a mode that matches 70s dub production styles with jazzy elements too – as Nat plays tenor, soprano, melodica, organ, piano, and percussion – and Al handles drums, organ, guitar, piano, and more percussion too! Breadwinner recorded and mixed the set – with the kind of mysterious vibe that almost recalls Lee Scratch Perry at Black Ark – and the duo are joined by Vin Gordon on trombone, David Fullwood on trumpet, and Stally on baritone sax. Titles include "Wise Man Style/Dub Of The Prophet", "Tribute To The Great Tommy McCook", "Man From Jones Down", "Upright Living", "Mystical Dawn", "African Village Dub", and "Upfull Dubbing".

Raymond Scott with Dorothy Collins & Mel TormeJingle Workshop – Midcentury Musical Miniatures 1951 to 1965 (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99 34.99
A really cool side of work from the enigmatic Raymond Scott – the legendary midcentury figure who did a wealth of creative work in jazz, soundtrack, and electronic music fields! Turns out, Scott also recorded a heck of a lot of commercials in his studio – all in ways that embrace all the many modes that Raymond did so well – a good number of which also feature lead vocals from his wife Dorothy Collins – a great recording star in her own right! The songs here are all pretty darn short – usually just a minute or less – but the set features a whopping 82 numbers in all, and is a fantastic representation of this lost side of the Raymond Scott legacy – all packaged beautifully with plenty of notes, and sound quality strong enough to move this material way past the demo archive status. Includes ads and jingles for a wide variety of products – from Hamm's Beer, to RCA TV, Gold Medal Flower, Teryton Cigarettes, Krystal Hamburgers, Sprite soda, Revlon Hair Spray, and other big products for the 50s homemaker! Also includes a few rare jingles sung by Mel Torme, too. LP, Vinyl record album
