Originally released on the Concord label, this masterful 1978 meeting of jazz guitar giants has quietly become one of the most collectible albums of its era. Herb Ellis and Remo Palmier (a.k.a Palmieri) were contemporaries in the red-hot NYC jazz scene of the 40s, but they arrived at this recording through very different routes. Ellis reputation steadily grew as he went from being a sideman in the Glen Gray and Jimmy Dorsey orchestras to being a mainstay in the Oscar Peterson Trio in the 50s, and later playing in a guitar trio with Barney Kessel and Charlie Byrd. Palmier, on the other hand, got his career off to a blazing start, playing with Coleman Hawkins before appearing on seminal bebop sides (e.g. Groovin High) with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. But then, health issues intervened, and Palmier spent the next three decades or so working a staff job at CBS for The Arthur Godfrey Show. Finally, after the show was canceled, Palmier re-entered jazz circles but never really recorded much, which only makes Windflower that much more of a treasure. Sublime is the word that springs to our mind, but you can substitute your own superlative; backed by George Duvivier on bass and Ron Traxler on drums, Ellis and Palmier bring an organic sense of swing, beautifully-voiced chords, and lyrical lead lines to such fare as The Night Has a Thousand Eyes, Groove Merchant, and even Danny Boy. Produced by Concord label founder Carl Jefferson. First-ever reissue, emerald green vinyl!

Drummer, composer, and producer Tom Skinner who is the drummer for The Smile and Sons of Kemet releases his new album, Voices of Bishara, on November 4, 2022, via Brownswood / International Anthem / Nonesuch. The first recording under Skinners own name is a reference to an album he listened to repeatedly during the COVID-19 lockdown: cellist Abdul Waduds 1978 solo album By Myself, which was privately pressed on Waduds label, Bishara. The common Arabic name has the intention or meaning of good news or the bringer of good news. Voices of Bishara began life when Tom Skinner asked some musician friends to join him for a Played Twice session at Londons Brilliant Corners. These regular sessions had a simple format: play a classic album in full through the venues audiophile system and then have a live ensemble improvise a response. The night in question focused on drummer Tony Williams 1964 Blue Note album, Life Time, and the music conjured that night inspired Skinner to write an albums worth of new music. Skinner recorded an album of that music with a cellist, bass, and two saxophonists subsequently putting it aside, occasionally bringing it out for some attention in between his many other creative projects. Gradually, the record began to take shape as he embraced the studio recordings and accentuated their idiosyncrasies.

Despite its confrontative title, Kiss My Axe is a sombre album, reflective of the mature artist Al Di Meola had become at the time. First released in February 1992, the album is a brilliant showcase of his impeccable technique yet doesnt overwhelm listeners with it. Di Meola uses his guitar skills rather subtly, enchanting the listeners and inviting them into this album filled to the brim with Latin influences and World Music elements, ranging from Middle Eastern harmonies to African grooves. The result is an immaculately arranged and passionately performed album that is widely regarded as one of the highlights in Al Di Meolas decades-spanning year career.

Orange And Blue was first released in 1994 and is a remarkable testament of Al Di Meolas unique sense of swing. The legendary guitarist recorded the album on the Al Di Meola Jazz Guitar, a custom hollow-body guitar designed in collaboration with Gibson, which allowed him a warmer tone to add to his established signature sound. The album itself is a tasteful collection of explorative compositions, with standout songs such as Chilean Pipe Song further cementing Al Di Meolas growth as a versatile writer and gifted guitarist.

Thats What Happened 1982-1985: Bootleg Volume 7 is the next installment in the celebrated, award-winning archival series that began in 2011, shining an in-depth light onto different eras of the legendary career of Miles Davis. In the 1980s, popular music had moved to a smoother, electronic-based sound that traded the steam of previous years for subdued arrangements meant to elicit peace and deep reflection. Miles Davis embraced this era, pulling inspiration from FM radio and an upstart music video channel called MTV. He was searching for the next frontier, letting his creativity roam. This music on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 captures that exploration, and finds Miles beginning to re-emerge in a creative landscape far different than the one he left in 1975. Hes touched every inch of pop culture while keeping true to his iconoclastic vision of jazz as amorphous art thats supposed to bend and flow and mutate to something else. OnThe Bootleg Series Vol. 7, we get to play in the rubble of what would become yet another period of unprecedented innovation. Beauty resides in evolution. This double LP collects highlights of Bootleg Volume 7 with over 80 minutes of unreleased studio material from 1982 to 1985 on white vinyl. Side men include a multi-generational whos who of jazz talent from JJ Johnson, Al Foster and John Scofield to Mike Stern, Marcus Miller and Daryl Jones.
