Wayne Shorter – The Soothsayer

null

Part of an explosion of solo albums Wayne Shorter recorded just after he joined Miles Davis’ band, The Soothsayer wasn’t released until the late ’70s. Listening to the album, it is hard to believe because it ranks with the best of his works from this incredibly fertile period. Shorter has been called Davis’ “idea man,” and the creativity and thoughtfulness that earned him that moniker are quite evident here. The album’s five originals and one arrangement (of Sibelius’ Valse Triste) show a multi-layered complexity that seems effortless even as it weaves together contributions from a very strong, stylistic sextet. Of particular interest is the interplay of the three horn players, including altoist James Spaulding and trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. As a performer, Shorter also shows a lot of strength, with fluid, at times subtly evocative, solos that bloom with energy without ever seeming frantic or harsh. The title track shows Shorter at his most forceful and is one of the most passionate moments on the album, but even here, beauty seems to come first, while his low-key standard “Lady Day” embodies grace and calmness in every moment. The CD version of this album also contains an alternate take of “Angola” that features some crisp playing by McCoy Tyner, as well as an energetic solo by Shorter.

03. The Big Push

Jackie McLean – It’s Time!

null

Recorded in 1964, Jackie McLean’s It’s Time was only available on CD in the United States as part of a four-disc Mosaic set of his complete Blue Note recordings between 1964-1966. The band here includes trumpeter Charles Tolliver, pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Cecil McBee, and drummer Roy Haynes. The music was written entirely by either Tolliver or McLean and walks the line between modal post-bop and free jazz. It came hot on the heels of McLean’s first forays into these waters on 1963′s One Step Beyond and Destination Out!. There is more to it than that, of course; chordal improvisation still plays a large part in the music on this fine record. Hancock’s solo on the opening “Cancellation” is the most angular thing here, and the tempo is simply breathtaking. McLean’s butt funky “Das’ Dat,” which follows, owes a debt to Horace Silver to be sure, but the blues element, which is in the tune’s head, is pure Jackie McLean. McLean’s own playing isn’t particularly adventurous, though he pushes his tone to the limits at times. He swings tough with the hard bop sensibility that put him on the label in the first place, and “Das’ Dat” is the most enjoyable thing here. The knotty head in the title cut is killer, with Tolliver and McLean going head to head and charging out of the gate, and the blues return in “‘Snuff” by McLean. Here again is a complex, winding head for the horns in call-and-response with Hancock — lean, spirited and full of crackling energy. Tolliver’s solo in the cut is his best on the disc. Given that this has been issued as part of Blue Note’s Connoisseur Series, it’s a limited edition that won’t be available for long. Just get it.

John Coltrane & Frank Wess – Wheelin’ & Dealin’

null

It’s the fall of 1957, and John Coltrane finds himself in another session with overtones of Kansas City, thanks to the inclusion of Basie alumni Frank Wess and Paul Quinichette. Wheelin’ & Dealin’ reprises the Mal Waldron/Art Taylor rhythm section (with Doug Watkins on bass instead of Paul Chambers), only with a bit more bite and jet propulsion than on Trane’s other Prestige all-star dates.

The chemistry between Coltrane, Wess and Quinichette makes Wheelin’ & Dealin’ a particular joy. Listen to the coquettish “Salt Peanuts” vamp Trane and Quinichette introduce behind Wess’ percolating flute on “Things Ain’t What They Used To Be,” and how modern Wess’ conception of this instrument is (rarely has Wess gotten the credit he deserves for his total command of the flute, and for popularizing it in a jazz setting). Quinichette offers witty asides to “Stormy Weather” and Trane answers the old master with steely trills, blues hollers and lines of escalating complexity; Quinichette answers with another quote, this time from “Undecided,” offering a perfect contrast between his own classic lyricism and Trane’s post-modern rhythmic/harmonic mastery. In their round-robin interplay on take 1 of “Wheelin’” Wess seems to split the generational difference.

Illinois Jacquet’s classic big-band number “Robbin’s Nest” offers a cool, laid back setting upon which to essay extended variations; Wess’ flute carries the main melodic thrust, as drummer Art Taylor and Waldron provide sly accompaniment and interplay. Quinichette is up next, and he attacks the theme and changes with taciturn splendor, gradually building tension until he wanders off with bluesy swagger. Trane answers with a magnificent solo, calmly outlining a harmonic sketch of his intentions before vaulting into rhythmically daring variations. The concluding “Dealin’” is a wily after-hours blues by Waldron, who sets a perfect mood on his opening solo, followed by Wess’ piping blues phrases, Quinichette’s elegant pear tones and Trane’s fervent testimony.

01. Things Ain’t What They Used To Be
02. Wheelin’ (Take 2)

Benny Golson – The Modern Touch

null

Benny Golson’s second album as a leader is a solid hard bop date featuring the tenorman in a quintet with trumpeter Kenny Dorham, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Max Roach. The all-star group performs three Golson originals (none of which really caught on), a pair of Gigi Gryce tunes (best known is “Hymn to the Orient”) and the standard “Namely You.” Excellent playing on an above-average set that defines the modern mainstream of 1957 jazz.

Benny Golson Sextet: Benny Golson (tenor saxophone); Kenny Dorham (trumpet); J.J. Johnson (trombone); Wynton Kelly (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Max Roach (drums).

Andrew Hill – Judgment!

null

Andrew Hill’s previous 1964 outing on Blue Note, the trio-only smoke stack, had drummer Roy Haynes sounding so much like Elvin Jones that Hill brought in the real thing for next quartet session, Judgment! True to form, the always fiery Jones gets things off to an explosive start on “Siete Ocho,” with Hill and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson keeping up as best they can. The warmly inventive Hutcherson remained an ideal musical partner for the abstract-minded pianist-composer, which was somewhat the same role that the bluesy vibraphonist Milt Jackson played with John Lewis in the Modern Jazz Quartet–except that, as a pianist, Andrew Hill is nowhere near as restrained as the spare and sometimes decorous Lewis. The ’60s avant-gardist is a prodigious, meaty musician, taking us on a dark, chromatic journey in all his extended improvisations. Judgment! is like an MJQ session opened up for a musically (and politically) radicalized ’60s.

Personnel: Andrew Hill (piano); Andrew Hill; Richard Davis (bass instrument); Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone); Elvin Jones (drums).

Horace Silver Quintet – Six Pieces Of Silver

null

The Horace Silver Blue Note catalog would not be complete without Six Pieces Of Silver, a session that put the pianist on the map as a leader. After leaving the Jazz Messengers to Art Blakey, this session gave Silver a solid foothold as a solo hard bop contender, as witnessed by the ultra-funky “Senor Blues.” Though his classic quintet was a few years off, SIX PIECES features many of Silver’s Messengers cohorts including Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Doug Watkins, and the drummer that best suited the funky pianist, Louis Hayes.

The session gets off to a rocking start with “Cool Eyes,” a swinging testament to Silver’s writing and arranging strengths. Switching gears drastically, the somber ballad “Shirl” is one of his most introspective works. The often-covered hit “Senor Blues” is presented here in three versions: the regular album-length take, a shorter single version, and a vocal rendition by singer Bill Henderson, who was then a newcomer on the New York scene. The only standard of the set, the classic “For Heaven’s Sake,” is a touching ballad that remains a favorite of many pianists, and Silver performs it here with his usual superb taste.

Personnel: Horace Silver (piano); Bill Henderson (vocals); Hank Mobley, Junior Cook (tenor saxophone); Donald Byrd (trumpet); Doug Watkins, Gene Taylor (bass); Louis Hayes (drums).

01. Cool Eyes
02. Shirl

Sun Ra and the Arkestra – Sound of Joy

null

This reissue, prior to the release of many of Sun Ra’s Saturn albums on Evidence CDs, was often thought of as Ra’s second recording although now several earlier dates have appeared. The music from Sun Ra’s Chicago-based band of the 1950s (some of the same tunes, but different performances, also appear on Evidence’s Planet Earth/Low Ways) is quite interesting for its ties to the bop and swing traditions are much more obvious than it would be in the near future. Ra’s eccentric piano and occasional electric keyboard look forward as do some of the harmonies and Jim Herndon’s colorful tympani. Two previously unissued cuts (other versions of which have also surfaced on an Evidence set) augment the original LP program.

Dizzy Reece – Comin’ On!

null

With less than a dozen recordings available on which Dizzy Reece was a leader, the appearance of this previously unreleased album by the talented trumpeter is cause for celebration. A Jamaican who came to New York via London, Reece released several albums in England during the mid-1950s that led to his 1958 Blue Note debut on Blues in Trinity. He followed with Star Bright in 1959, played congas on Art Blakey’s Africaine, and in April 1960 laid down the first five tracks of this CD using the Jazz Messenger’s rhythm section. The session is notable not only for marking the Blue Note debut of tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, but also for including “Achmet”–an unusual, percussive tune Reece based on an Algerian theme–and “The Case of the Frightened Lover,” which showcases his skill as a composer of catchy melodies. The four remaining tracks, from a July 1960 session, have as their highlight a sublime Reece solo on a subdued quartet’s reading of the standard “The Things We Did Last Summer.”

Tracklist

01. Ye Olde Blues
02. The Case Of The Frightened
03. Tenderly

Talib Kweli – Gutter Rainbows

null

On Reflection Eternal’s 2000 album “Train of Thought,” Talib Kweli challenged fans, and himself, to “do what comes naturally.” After years of recording on mainstream labels, he now has the chance to produce exactly what he wants-and feels he needs-to produce: an album straight from his mouth to the ears of his fans. Invoking the true meaning of MC, Master of Ceremonies, Kweli brings incredible power to his live shows and feeds off the spontaneous energy of his audiences. Being able to interact directly with his audience and the musicians he most respects, he has created an album and a sound that best reproduces that ceremony for his fans. Finally, after serious urgency in the studio, Kweli presents ‘Gutter Rainbows,’ an album that takes a trip back to childhood while marking the newest stage in his long and dynamic career.As a boy growing up in Brooklyn, Kweli saw gutters that ran with dirt, oil and water, revealing a shimmering rainbow to his child’s eyes. Drawing its title from this memory, this album puts at the raw center what his music has been doing for years: finding and preserving the beautiful in the hideous; the rainbows in the gutter. Weaving the lyrical and the gritty, the autobiographical with an honest, no-holdsbarred hip-hop spirit; Kweli sticks fiercely to what feels true to him in creating the sound of this album. Without being tied to any particular label’s conception of what his sound should be or when his work should hit his fans, Kweli is free to build his most personal album yet in both content and motivation. Kweli’s true solo career has only just begun, and although the future holds more collaboration, “Gutter Rainbows” marks a new stage in the long and ever-evolving career of Talib Kweli.

This newest release, recorded on his time and with his talent as the driving force, proves Kweli is a complete and formidable musician-it presents the depth and breadth of his experience and ability, and sets a new bar for the cutting edge of hip-hop music.

“Gutter Rainbows” was recorded with the help of incredibly talented musicians from across the country. Eric Krasno, Jean Grae, Strong Arm Steady, Iron Solomon, Outasight, Kendra Ross, Sean Price, 88-Keys, Marco Polo, Ski Beatz, M-Phazes, S-1, E. Jones, Oh No and others make appearances.

John Coltrane – Stellar Regions

null

This set is drawn from a February 15, 1967, recording session–one of John Coltrane’s last days in the studio. The tapes had been in Alice Coltrane’s care since the recording, and she gave titles to the pieces, overseeing their release on CD in 1995. All are previously unreleased with the exception of “Offering” which appeared on Expression. As on that release, there’s evidence here that Coltrane’s relentless musical search was drawing him ever further out. The performances are shorter, focused, with a magisterial lyricism seamlessly integrated with exclamatory shrieks and cries. There is an aching, though rough-hewn, beauty to Coltrane’s playing on these tracks. With the exception of “Tranesonic” where he is on alto, he plays tenor sax throughout. His command of the instrument from the very bottom of the low register to the stratospheric heights of the altissimo is staggering–note in particular his “duet” with himself on “Sun Star” where he questions and answers with himself on the extreme ranges of the horn. There’s a depth and wisdom to these recordings that only further extends the Coltrane legacy.

Hugh Masekela – Home Is Where The Music Is

null

Released as a double LP on Chisa/Blue Thumb in 1972, Hugh Masekela’s Home Is Where the Music Is marked an accessible but sharp detour from his more pop-oriented jazz records of the ’60s. Masekela was chasing a different groove altogether. He was looking to create a very different kind of fusion, one that involved the rhythms and melodies of his native South Africa, and included the more spiritual, soul-driven explorations occurring in American music at the time on labels like Strata East, Tribe, and Black Jazz as well as those laid down by Gato Barbieri on Bob Thiele’s Flying Dutchman imprint. The South African and American quintet he assembled for the date is smoking. It includes the mighty saxophonist Dudu Pakwana and drummer Makaya Ntshoko, both South African exiles; they were paired with American pianist Larry Willis and bassist Eddie Gomez, creating a wonderfully balanced, groove-oriented ensemble. Produced by Stewart Levine and composer Caiphus Semenya, this is a near mythic date that was reviewed favorably but infrequently back in the day. Home Is Where the Music Is, is a stone spiritual soul-jazz classic, that melds the sound of numerous emerging jazz schools in its pursuit of musical excellence; it succeeds on all counts and is one of the greatest recordings in Hugh Masekela’s long career. In a year full of amazing titles, this is still a standout.

Ray Charles & Milt Jackson – Soul Brothers/Soul Meeting

null

These records are “cool” in the classic sense of the word: they swing, groove, whisper and discuss with the sophisticated yet down-home relaxation of a late-night session. While Milt Jackson’s work with the Modern Jazz Quartet represents a kind of bebop perfection, the truism about the MJQ has always been that it’s Jackson the irrepressible soloist and blues spirit that provides the ballast to John Lewis’ more cerebral explorations of form and composition.

At the same time, Ray Charles’ reputation as the definitive gospel-inspired R&B shouter and bandleader overshadows the facts of his jazz background and impressive musicianship. This is a guy, after all, who early in his career wanted to sound as much like Nat Cole as possible–and did, for a time, as both a singer and a pianist. So while these giants meet on the common turf of the blues on these two records, they bring a sharp jazz sensibility to the numerous and varied twelve-bar grooves here. Charles’ stompin’ bebop lines on the bonus track “Charlesville” are only one of the many revelations of this session.

Paul Chambers – Bass On Top

null

Paul Chambers cut this little known album for Blue Note in 1957. Those familiar with Chambers’s bass work on straight bop recordings, especially those done with Miles Davis in the 1950s, might be surprised at the range and variety here. Chambers plays the bass as a lead instrument (as the album’s title indicates), and leads a crack ensemble–which includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Hank Jones on piano, and Art Taylor on drums–through a rousing session of exploratory post-bop. This one comes recommended to collectors, not least for the Rudy Van Gelder remastering.

Personnel: Paul Chambers (bass guitar); Kenny Burrell (guitar); Hank Jones (piano); Art Taylor (drums).
