I picked this up bc the players looked good and glad I did. Overall it's a deeper groove and everyone is playing at top form. No cliche's or noodling and deeper moods. Would recommend.

Been a favorite for a long time now. Was on a Claus Ogerman dive and picked this up one day for a few bucks. For sure best use of that money. Put the record on not expecting anything and my skull continued to get pulled apart minute by minute. The... See full review

Fantastic release. 10/10 Feel like the earlier versions were a bit more raw, where this takes it to new heights. Spectacular and listen to it a lot.
Bruce Forman - River Journey
posted a review of Bruce Forman - River Journey. over 3 years ago
Cover of Ahbez Nature Boy is the standout track on here. A few other decent tracks. Russell Ferrante really shines on here playing in a more Japanese jazz style. Forman plays guitar, not overly flashy. Tight band.

I don't know what the original sounds like but I can't imagine it sounding a lot better on Vee Jay with age, etc. Not a bad way to get this, except the cover.

These are easy to pasup and throw a low rating on but this one is really pretty decent. The first track is free session with Lloyd and Jarrett. Dollar Brand is on point as always. The best track on here is the Michael White with McBee, Ed Kelly and... See full review

If you read the genre's listed above, you can see this is not an easy one to pin down. I think this album defies genres. The quality is there overall, some tracks are better than others, but the consistency is high on this one. On first listen, I was... See full review

I'm all in on this one. Breezy AOR, electronics with rock, even Balearic vibes on some. Such a great album full of great song writing and interesting upbeat grooves on some, disco and soul influenced. Not for everyone but if anything I said intrigues,... See full review

Essential AOR album with west coast flavors. Overall a solid record from front to back. Without a doubt, a few standouts, my favorite being Midnight Lady. Overlooked gem.

Leon had a prolific career and it's amazing he had the longevity that few other artists can maintain. This is one of his better albums, hits as hard as his best from the past. It's not pandering or trying to hit a contemporary sound. It's distinctly... See full review

Art Blakey And The Jazzmessengers* - Album Of The Year
posted a review of Art Blakey And The Jazzmessengers* - Album Of The Year. over 4 years ago
Pretty good record overall but the star of the show is "In Case You Missed It" by Watson. Worth the price of admission alone. Been in my collection for a long time. There is another big band version of it by Persip that is also amazing.

Probably one of the best soul writers and singers ever. Especially considering his longevity, quality and ability to adapt to the changing times.

Mixed bag of disco, funk, jazz, soul, etc. All star lineup. Dreamer is the standout track for me, but has a handful of decent tracks on there. If you are a fan of smoother jazz, cosmic touches, etc. this is one to check out. Still delivers after 15+ years. See full review
McCoy Tyner - Atlantis
posted a review of McCoy Tyner - Atlantis. over 4 years ago
This record shows what Tyner was doing out on the road, Berklee/San Francisco 1975, which is often different from what is going on in the recording studio. Live albums are usually more loose, energetic, wild, they take their time and often have been... See full review
Fruko Y Sus Tesos - Tesura

Solid salsa / guaguanco from Columbia. Has some vocal, some instrumental, fits in with the Fania sound. The vocals can get playful (el Brito) but solid player from front to back (last track is okay). You can hear some psych rock influences now and... See full review

Review of instrumental. Italo chugger with a little contemporary jazz/uk boogie sprinkled in. It's not the most amazing track you will ever hear but it hits the spot.
Macondo (2) - Macondo

In the lines of the latin-rock-funk-soul movement of the 70s. I got this lp around 20 years ago and mainly liked it for one track, put it on recently and enjoyed the full a lot more than I used to. It's hard. Easy to find and worth the few bucks.
Duke Jordan - Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Not to be confused with Art Blakey's session. Solid bop outing featuring a nice lineup, especially Charlie Rouse on Sax and Duke on piano. They really pull most of the weight. Nothing too insane but just a solid session that ranges from up tempo post... See full review

It's hard to know how good or bad the recordings on some of these represses are, because the original may not be a lot better. Regardless, this is a really special Sun Ra. It has a lot of great players with great tunes. It's hard to pick favorites but... See full review

One of the strangest releases on the Blue Note catalog. Gil takes a shot at new age after a break for 18 years, under an avant lens. Some parts are gentile and beautiful while others are dissonant. New Age often walks the line of magic or campy and... See full review

A sleeper from 2018. This is an interesting record and not sure how I feel about it totally but I keep coming back to it since it came out. I think my uncertainty comes from that it covers too much ground. It's a mixed bag of well-written songs but... See full review

This record sounds really nice. It's a tad muddy and I felt like I could hear compression but I would buy re's a lot more if they sounded like this, ;) I also don't have an original to check it against but the vinyl is great. Comes with a paper and... See full review
Pat LaBarbera Quartet - Virgo Dance
posted a review of Pat LaBarbera Quartet - Virgo Dance. over 5 years ago
This is one of those sleeper records that will eventually get 'found' and then sell for more. The full thing is contemporary vibe but hits a lot on the modal and spiritual side of things. It's worth checking out, I think YouTube has some clips up now.

Really interesting and unique record. "Are You Real" is a dreamy jazz organ song, slow, dreamy... sounds like if a r+b act turned jazz or something. The second track follows suit. The third track is more up tempo, swings... most of the record is... See full review

Lounge jazz record with some breaks, nice power piano vibes, and some decent songs if this is your bag. Record one is mainly Sandra on vocals and not my thing. Record two is the better, more instrumentals and interesting. The pressing is a tad shoddy.
