Donald Byrd Slow Drag
Great hard bop, passing in 1967 from bluesy to modal, with Cedar Walton, Billy Higgins and the terrific Sonny Red. The long title track is sultry and grooving; and there's a version of the dancer Book's Bossa.




Louis Smith Here Comes Louis Smith
With Cannonball Adderley, Duke Jordan and co.
Kicking off with Tribute To Brownie; and extending his tradition of hard bop trumpet-playing.



Art Blakey The Freedom Rider
Stupendous early-sixties date with Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons and Lee Morgan, on fire with political fury. From a string of 'Blue Notes for a blue note' out recently (and no doubt briefly).



Horace Parlan Up And Down
With Booker Ervin and Grant Green in 1961.






Sonny Clark Sonny Clark Trio
The 1957 recording with Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones.



Grant Green The Complete Quartets With Sonny Clark
The Nigeria, Oleo and Gooden's Corner sets, including a killer It Ain't Necessarily So.



Kenny Dorham Whistle Stop
With Hank Mobley, Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers, Philly Joe Jones.



Andrew Hill Compulsion!!!!!
Stretching out in 1965, with John Gilmore, Joe Chambers and co, two extra percussionists, and two bassists on one track. Abstract but fierce, textured but compelling.




Jason Moran Ten
Superb piano trio music, streaming from blues, hiphop, ragtime and co with seamless refinement. Two Conlan Noncarrow covers and a Hendrix sample! Dedicated to Andrew Hill and Jaki Byard; infused with Monk.



Jackie McLean Swing Swang Swingin'
Like a shit-house door with Walter Bishop, Art Taylor and Jimmy Garrison.
