Jazz / Hard Bop / Groove / Underground Soul Jazz / Trombone

The title certainly gets it right – as the set's one of the best (and one of the few) albums that trombonist Curtis Fuller cut in the 70s – a searingly sharp session that really shows a change from some of his Blue Note modes of the 60s! There's a current of righteous energy that moves through the set – and which maybe ties the sound more strongly to the sort of underground soul jazz work being recorded by the Black Jazz label of the period, or maybe like some of the hipper currents over at Prestige – such as Joe Henderson's albums. George Cables plays electric piano on the record – which already sets it apart from Fuller's earlier material – and the tracks are long, loose, and open – and graced with strong solo work from Bill Hardman on trumpet, Ray Moros on tenor, and Bill Washer on guitar. Yet perhaps strongest of all in shaping the record is the work of the rhythm duo Stanley Clarke on bass and Lenny White on drums – both working together here at an early point in their careers, but already hinting at the greatness to come. A very different album for Curtis Fuller.

Jazz / Hard Bop / Groove / Trombone

Curtis Fuller is definitely smoking here – finding a way to fit his soulful trombone style to a sweet electric groove for the 70s – all at a level that makes the album one of his best from the decade! The drums are great – handled by Billy Higgins throughout, in a way that can be stone funky at some points, and nicely fluid at others – which Fuller matches with a combo that includes Cedar Walton on acoustic and electric piano, Bill Hardman on trumpet, Jimmy Heath on tenor and soprano, Earl Dunbar on guitar, and Mickey Bass on drums! The whole set is a wonderful step sideways for most players – a great way to reinvent their soulful styles of the 60s, but without going for any modes that are slick and commercial.

Jazz / Latin Jazz / Post Bop / Samba Jazz / Bossa Nova / Brazilian Traditions

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. One of the first Dutch bands - if not the first - to perform purely Brazilian music, but not with the bossa nova's until then, but with his own compositions that radiate power and are compelling. Founders Josee Koning (vocals) and Peter Schön (keyboards, compositions) devise as a trademark for this approach: two percussionists on stage, live and in the mix on the record.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. This is a fun quartet playing a very nice combination of Bossa-Samba-Jazz. Their version (Chick de Ipanema) has a fantastic incidental combination of two of the most amazing Bossa songs of all times in the same song; Girl from Ipanema and Summer Samba in a smooth and subtle way that will blow you away. Their other renditions to Bossa classics are amazing. Check them out, you'll love them.

Jazz / Stride / Piano

Reissue with the latest 2017 remastering. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Earl Hines had many years of music under his belt when he cut this session in the mid 60s – yet his sense of creative improvisation was more than sharp enough to warrant the promise of the title! The set features Hines alone at the keyboard, in a wonderfully well-recorded setting – working this amazing magic on his solo performances, which really transform the tunes into something new entirely – piano explorations that almost make you feel like you're finding Earl in the back room of some small club, after hours – working out all sorts of new ideas, without having to worry about commercial considerations at all.

Jazz / Post Bop / Piano Trio

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Tribute album that focuses more on songs played by Parker, as opposed to focusing primarily on songs composed by Parker. Rein de Graaff - Pianist. Dutch self-taught pianist who's made himself one of Europe's best session players. De Graaff led a trio from 1959 to 1962, then joined The Jazzopters for a year. He then headed his own quartet until 1964, at the same time playing with Erwin Some and Gijs Hendriks. De Graaff formed a new group in 1964 that stayed together until the '80s.

Jazz / Bop / Bebop / Big Band / Saxophone

A reissue of the original 1952 Clef recording session, this is one of the few instances in Charlie Parker's later career where he played with something other than a small bebop group. Under contract at the time to Clef's Norman Granz, Parker was encouraged by the label to make recordings that took him out of his familiar settings and put him in with string arrangements, Latin rhythms, and larger band formats. This recording is the result of one of these experiments. Though Joe Lipman's arrangements are stellar, the musicians assembled for the sessions are an odd mix of pop-oriented big-band players and improvisers.

Jazz / Post Bop / Saxophone

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. A beautiful late 70s set from reedman Marion Brown – maybe not as all-out adventurous as some of his earliest material, but still filled with a strong sense of spirit and soul! The group here is a bit unusual – as Brown's alto is set up with the guitar of Brandon K Ross, bass of Jack Gregg, and drums of Steve McCraven – in a format that often has the ringing tones of Ross' guitar working nicely with the introspective tones of Brown's alto sax. Some tunes are spacious and have a sense of sonic exploration, others are a bit more swinging, with some unusual rhythmic inflections from the guitar – and McCraven's nicely open sensibilities on the drums. And while the whole thing maybe isn't as all-out avant, the shift is actually a nice one in showing some of Brown's more personal, spiritual currents too.

Jazz / Hard Bop / Saxophone

Big Brass is an appropiate name for the large ensemble arranged and conducted by Ernie Wilkins that accompanies the huge sound of Sonny Rollins. The energy within the leader's gospel-flavored shout "Grand Street" is considerable, while a swinging but no less powerful version of George & Ira Gershwin's "Who Cares" features a choice solo by guitarist Rene Thomas. Also added to this compilation are trio recordings with bassist Henry Grimes and drummer Specs Wright, including a brilliant leisurely stroll through "Manhattan," along with Rollins' tour de force unaccompanied tenor sax on "Body and Soul."
