Sun Ra – Some Blues But Not The Kind That’s Blue

null

This reissue of one of Sun Ra’s original 1970s recordings for Saturn Records captures the jazz icon performing with his Outer Space Arkestra, offering up a mixture of standards and originals. The latter are represented by the title track, a cacophonous sonic wash that has the Arkestra going at full tilt, and an untitled track that highlights Ra’s unconventional piano work. Treatments of “My Favorite Things,” “Tenderly,” and “Black Magic” are more instantly recognizable, but no less inspired.

Personnel: James Jacson (flute, bassoon); Danny Davis , Marshall Allen (flute, alto saxophone); Eloe Omoe (bass clarinet); John Gilmore (tenor saxophone); Ahk Tal Ebah (trumpet, flugelhorn); Richard “Radu” Williams, Ronnie Boykins (bass guitar); Luqman Ali (drums); Atakatune (conga drum).

Jack McDuff – Sophisticated Funk

null

A lost electric groover from Brother Jack McDuff – sweet keyboards instead of his usual Hammond, but still plenty darn great! The record’s got a slinky groove that’s almost more CTI than Chess Records – with full arrangements by Billy Jones, who also plays guitar on the record – alongside plenty of great sax and flute from Joe Farrell. Sessions were done at the All Platinum Studios in New Jersey – no surprise, given that Chess was owned by that label by this point, and Jones himself was recording for them as part of the group Brother To Brother. The overall groove is somewhere between Bob James and Larry Mizell – although very much its own sort of bag as well – and titles include a great remake of “Theme From Electric Surfboard”, plus “Dit Da Dit”, “Ju Ju”, “To Be Named Later”, “Mini Pads”, “Summer Dream”, and “Mannix Theme”. Gotta love the cover, too!

John Coltrane – First Meditations

null

Not released initially until 1977, the music on this 1992 CD was the last recording made by the classic John Coltrane Quartet; other slightly later records found the group augmented by additional musicians. Four of the five movements on this release (which are augmented by a lengthier second version of “Joy”) would become part of the better-known Meditations album (along with another movement) 2½-months later when tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders and drummer Rashied Ali temporarily made the group a sextet. Coltrane (sticking here exclusively to tenor) plays passionately, alternating ferocious explorations with more lyrical sections.

The Crusaders Albums!

In 1961, four fellows from Houston transplanted themselves to Los Angeles and added more distinctly bluesy elements to the soul jazz style with an ear-grabbing album called The Freedom Sound on the Pacific Jazz label. The band, which had been known in turn as the Swingsters, the Modern Jazz Sextet, and the Nighthawks, was now named the Jazz Crusaders. Its four co-leaders were trombonist Wayne Henderson, tenor saxophonist (and occasional bassist) Wilton Felder, pianist Joe Sample, and drummer Nesbert “Stix” Hooper.

The Jazz Crusaders sound caught on big time, and their subsequent Pacific Jazz albums rewarded them with a good deal of exposure. The band performed regularly and got plenty of airplay. One of its signature pieces, the rollickingly fast “Young Rabbits,” was even used as the musical background for a Ford Mustang TV commercial.

But as times changed, so did the Jazz Crusaders. In the late Sixties, they placed such popular numbers as the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” and “Get Back” in their repertoire, and firm backbeats began to bolster many a selection. By 1971, they decided that the word “jazz” kept them from attracting a wider listener base, and so they emerged anew with The Crusaders, Vol. 1 (Chisa), an album that openly infused jazz with pop, soul, and r&b elements.

If the Jazz Crusaders had achieved some degree of popularity, it was nothing like the crossover success that greeted the Crusaders. Such albums as Scratch, Southern Comfort, Chain Reaction, Those Southern Knights, Free as the Wind, Images, Street Life, and Royal Jam (recorded variously for the Chisa, ABC Blue Thumb, and MCA labels) sold well and brought in a deluge of new fans. Street Life’s title track provided the Crusaders with a Billboard top forty hit, reaching no. 36 in 1979.

The Crusaders’ popularity started to fade in the early Eighties, prompted by Henderson’s departure. Hooper then left as well, and by the early Nineties Sample and Felder had disbanded the group. A few years later, Henderson and Felder began performing together, first as the New Crusaders and, more recently, as the Jazz Crusaders.

Weather Report Albums!

Weather Report was one of the earliest and most influential Jazz-Rock groups. Keyboardist Joe Zawinul and saxophone player Wayne Shorter formed the group in 1971. Both had spent in time in Miles Davis’ group – Shorter played with the legendary 1960s quintet (along with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams). Zawinul joined later, during the early days when Davis pioneered the fusion movement. Zawinul was one of the early masters of the synthesizer. Before joining Davis’ group, he played electric piano in the Cannonball Adderly quintet. The sound so impressed Davis, that he hired Zawinul and made future keyboard players play the instrument.

In addition to forming the group and composing many of their songs, they were the two constant members in the group, as many musicians passed through. One of the most famous to pass through was bassists Jaco Pastorius. Pastorius was a pioneer on the electric bass. He took it from a rhythm instrument into an important solo instrument by playing with speed and grace, often dazzling audiences with his virtuosity during unaccompanied solos . He created a slippery effect by using a fretless bass. He has influenced countless bass players to this day. He joined Weather Report in 1976 and left in 1982, forming his own group Word of Mouth. Aside from a tremendous ego, he was alcoholic and a heroine addict. He died tragically in 1987 after he instigated a fight at a bar and suffered head injuries.

Unlike many groups, Weather Report focused on a group sound, creating complex arrangements in addition to their improvised solos, which made it more difficult to distinguish between the soloist and accompanists, because they were virtuosos on their instruments, providing awe-inspiring solos, as well as accompaniment work.

The group originally included Miroslav Vitous, percussionist Airto Moreira and drummer Alphonze Mauzon. Their self-titled debut album, as well as their follow-up I sing the Body Electric, are jazz-rock classics. However, their greatest line-up was in the mid 70s when Pastorious and drummer Peter Erskine joined. This line-up put out the fine records Black Market, Mr. Gone, and Heavy Weather, which was their biggest selling album and included their most famous hit Birdland). After Erskine and Pastorious left, they were replaced by Omar Hakim and Victor Bailey, respectively. While they were fine musicians, they lacked the flamboyance and imagination as their predecessors, Their records afterward, were polished, yet detached and lacked the fire of the early works. Shorter and Zawinul disbanded the group in 1987. In 1996, rumors circulated that the Shorter and Zawinul would reunite the group, but it never happened.

While many fusion groups only lasted a few years, Weather Report lasted over fifteen.

Gene Harris – Tone Tantrum

null

Sweet sweet keyboards from the amazing Gene Harris – one of his seminal electric sides for Blue Note in the 70s – recorded between his earliest fame in the Three Sounds, and his later return to acoustic styles in the 80s! The sound here is equal parts jazz and soul – as Gene’s working with vocalist/arranger Jerry Peters, who brings in a good deal of his own groove to the tracks – giving them a strong focus that’s sometimes missing from other solo Harris sets. Both Peters and Harris play Fender Rhodes and other keyboards on the album – alongside a variety of players that include Donald Byrd on trumpet, Harvey Mason on drums, and Chuck Rainey on bass. Tracks include the Peters tunes “If You Can’t Find Love” and “A Minor”, a two-part remake of Duke Pearson’s “Christo Redentor”, the sweet stepper “Peace Of Mind”, and a strong vocal take on Stevie Wonder’s “As”.

Ramsey Lewis – Love Notes

A great little album of mid 70s funk from Ramsey Lewis – very much in the mode of his Earth, Wind, & Fire related work – no surprise, since the album’s dedicated to Charles Stepney, whose influence was such a key part of the sound of the group, and of some of Ramsey’s other Kalimba-produced albums from a few years before! Ramsey plays Fender Rhodes, mini moog, and Arp – and he gets help on keyboards from Stevie Wonder and Derf Reklaw, who also plays saxes and percussion on the set. Features versions of Wonder’s “Love Notes” and “Spring High”, plus Reklaw’s “Chili Today Hot Tamale”, “Shining”, and “Stash Dash”.

Ann Peebles Albums!

Ann Peebles (born April 27, 1947) is a singer and songwriter, best known for her Memphis soul albums of the 1970s on the Hi Records label. Two of her better known songs are “I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down” and “I Can’t Stand the Rain”, popularised by cover versions by Paul Young and Eruption  respectively. “I Can’t Stand the Rain” was written by her husband, Don Bryant, former radio broadcaster, Bernard “Bernie” Miller, and Peebles.

Peebles was discovered as a talent by Gene “Bowlegs” Miller of Hi Records during a 1968 trip to sit in singing with him at a Memphis, Tennessee, nightclub. A popular local bandleader, Miller was known for also helping other musicians, such as members of the Hi Rhythm Section, get their start in the Memphis music industry. Peebles soon began penning and singing hits for the label, co-writing with label staff songwriter Don Bryant, whom she later married in 1974. Peebles released a number of commercially successful and critically well received albums produced by Willie Mitchell on Hi Records throughout the 1970s, until the rise of disco music in the late 1970s took her music  out of the limelight. Hi Records was sold in 1977, but Peebles reunited with Willie Mitchell in 1989 to produce her comeback album, Call Me.

In 2006 she released the album Brand New Classics, which consisted of re-recordings of some of her songs in an acoustic style.

Andrea Centazzo is an Italian-born American percussionist and composer of minimal music. He acquired U.S. citizenship in 2000 and lives in Los Angeles, California.

In more than 30 years’ career, Centazzo crossed music genres and artistic expression forms, starting as jazz percussionist and improviser to become later a contemporary composer, a visual artist, a film and Theater director and a multimedia artist. His discography includes over 150 LPs, CDs, and DVDs, almost all recorded for ICTUS RECORDS, his own label, founded in 1976 and still active after its 2006 rebirth in California. He has performed and recorded with Don Cherry, Derek Bailey, Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, John Zorn, Henry Kaiser, Enrico Rava, Tom Cora, Theo Jörgensmann, Alvin Curran, Lol Coxhill, and others. Most of those musicians were involved in his Mitteleuropa Orchestra, a seminal 16-piece big band active between 1980 and 1983 in Europe. His composer career started writing for that ensemble and later expanded in writing for symphonic orchestra and opera. His most famous opera, TINA (1996), was inspired by the life and art of Tina Modotti. Two more operas followed, Memento in 2000 and Simultas in 2001. Since 2003 Centazzo wrote and performed three seminal multimedia solo shows (Mandala, Eternal Traveler, and Einstein’s Cosmic Messengers), combining his award-winning videos with solo performances based on percussion and digital percussion, making extensive use of computers, looping, and sampling. Centazzo has performed around the world and released numerous recordings, both as leader and sideman.

Franco Micalizzi – Violence

null

Very solid Italian soundtrack for a police movie. Excellent funky theme that is reprised throughout the record, a bit like his British ‘cousin’, “The Hanged Man”. Dark slow or medium grooves with very efficient breaks on “Caccia al cinese”, “Dark Suspense” and “Affano”.

Tarika Blue – Tarika Blue

null

As much as purists complain about the modern urban music practice of sampling classic tracks, this can also lead to a modern appreciation of great (and sometimes forgotten) music from yesteryear. A short-lived New York-based ensemble led by keyboardist Phil Clendennin, Tarika Blue released two recordings in the late ’70s that blended silky jazz fusion sensibilities and the mellow soul sound of the day that’s now considered old-school. Vocalist Erykah Badu rekindled interest in the group by using, without permission, its laid-back tune “Dreamflower” as the background for her platinum hit, “Didn’t Cha Know,” which went on to be nominated for R&B song of the year in 2001. Universal/Motown and Badu later agreed to pay a settlement fee for the sample, and SOS Productions d.b.a. Chiaroscuro Records has launched the new label Downtown Sound as a platform for this compilation of these two original, very appealing recordings. The vibe, influenced by Fender Rhodes, the jangling guitars of Ryo Kawasaki, and the punchy sax of Marvin Blackman, is light and funky in the mode of the Crusaders. Energetic tracks like “Things Spring” are fun despite dated production values, and the instrumental passages and tunes are far superior to the somewhat cheesy, melodramatic vocal segments. You don’t have to know the history to enjoy this blast from the past, but it adds a little color to the experience.

Miles Davis Albums!

Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer.

Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music, including bebop, cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, and jazz fusion. Many well-known musicians rose to prominence as members of Davis’ ensembles, including saxophonists Gerry Mulligan, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, George Coleman, Wayne Shorter, and Kenny Garrett; trombonist J. J. Johnson; pianists Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Keith Jarrett; guitarists John McLaughlin, John Scofield and Mike Stern; bassists Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, and Dave Holland; and drummers Tony Williams, Billy Cobham and Jack DeJohnette.

On October 7, 2008, his album Kind of Blue, released in 1959, received its fourth platinum certification from the RIAA, signifying sales of 4 million copies. Miles Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Davis was noted as “one of the key figures in the history of jazz”.

On November 5, 2009, Rep. John Conyers of Michigan sponsored a measure in the US House of Representatives to recognize and commemorate the album Kind of Blue on its 50th anniversary. The measure also affirms jazz as a national treasure and “encourages the United States government to preserve and advance the art form of jazz music.” It passed, unanimously, with a vote of 409–0 on December 15, 2009.

Bob James – Heads

null

Bob James truly established himself as an outstanding arranger with this ’70s release, which includes such notable tunes as Boz Scaggs’ “We’re All Alone,” Peter Frampton’s “I’m In You,” Henry Purcell’s gorgeous “One Loving Night” and the Billy Preston/Bruce Fischer hit “You Are so Beautiful.” James works his magic with the help of David Sanborn, Grover Washington, Jr., and Patti Austin, along with a complete orchestra featuring strings, brass and a woodwind section notably including Michael Brecker and Eddie Daniels.

The end result is a recording that ranks among James’ best. His two original compositions, “Heads” and “Night Crawler,” earned him considerable praise and respect as a solo artist, and fully demonstrate just how intricate his compositions can be. This CD is as excellent introduction to Bob James’ music.

Gil Scott-Heron Albums!

Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American  poet, musician, and author  known primarily for his late 1970s and early 1980s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”. On his influence, Allmusic  wrote “Scott-Heron’s unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists”.

Luther Vandross Albums!

Rhythm and blues singer and songwriter, Luther Vandross came on the music scene in 1975, singing back-up for David Bowie, and co-writing his hit single, “Fame.” Going on to sing back-up for several other popular singers, Vandross released his own album, “Never Too Much,” in 1981, and it immediately went to the top of the R&B charts. Each of his next five albums sold more than a million copies, and Vandross won his first Grammy  Award in 1990, for best R&B male vocal performance. He went on to record many more hit albums, and won several more Grammys.Born in New York in 1951, Vandross began his career writing and performing jingles for television commercials.

In April, 2003, Vandross suffered a stroke that left him in a coma for nearly two months. In June, he came out of the coma, and a week later his final album, Dance With My Father, was released, debuting at number one on the pop charts. The album won four Grammys, including Song of the Year for the title song.

Never having fully recovered from the stroke, and suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure, Vandross died in July 2005.

Henry Franklin – Tribal Dance

null

Jazz bassist Henry Franklin was born in 1940, the son of West Coast jazz trumpeter Sammy Franklin. Henry Franklin began his own career while he was still in high school, playing with his contemporary, Roy Ayers, in the latter’s Latin jazz quintet. This experience put Franklin on the path to his work with Latin jazz bandleader and percussionist Willie Bobo. His work with Bobo in New York also led to Franklin’s playing with Archie Shepp.

Franklin later played with Hugh Masekela, appearing on the latter’s number one single, “Grazing in the Grass,” and the album Promise of a Future (1968), which was among Franklin’s earliest official recording credits (and was one of the bigger-selling jazz albums of 1968). He got further exposure from his work with Masekela when Franklin played in the band that the South African-born trumpet player brought to the Monterey International Pop Festival in June of 1967 — their appearance there was immortalized in the D.A. Pennebaker documentary film of the event, Monterey Pop.

In the decades since, Franklin often referred to as “the Skipper” has played and recorded with Gene Harris & the Three Sounds, Freddie Hubbard, Bobbi Humphrey, Hampton Hawes, et al., as well as releasing a brace of albums by his own band right into the 21st century
