Donald Byrd Kofi
Ace, key DB. 'The perfect bridge between his spacey late-60s attempts to mimic Miles, and his tighter early-70s jazz-funk with the Mizells.' Trumpet-tenor-flute; Duke Pearson on electric piano.



Horace Parlan Happy Frame Of Mind
Alongside Grant Green, Booker Ervin and Johnny Coles, no less, outward bound in 1963. You can hear in his wonderful playing that the Mingus pianist had polio as a kid, partially crippling his right hand.



Dexter Gordon One Flight Up
Moody Paris jams from 1964 with Donald Byrd and Kenny Drew. Byrd's sweetly soulful Tanya extends 18 minutes; Drew's Coppin' is minor-key, modal soul jazz; the ballad is full-force DG, big and hurting.



Grachan Moncur III Some Other Stuff
The master-trombonist's great, second Blue Note a 1964 recording with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Cecil McBee and Anthony Williams. It's more reaching than Evolution. You need both. Don.













Robert Glasper Black Radio 2
Vocals from Common, Brandy, Jill Scott, Dwele, Anthony Hamilton, Faith Evans, Norah Jones, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Emeli Sande, Lalah Hathaway, amongst others. Extras on the pricier CD.
