Max Roach ‎– Drums Unlimited

Review by Scott Yanow
Other than a trio set with the legendary pianist Hasaan Ibn Ali, this set was Max Roach's only recording as a leader during 1963-67. Three of the six numbers ("Nommo," "St. Louis Blues" and "In the Red") find Roach heading a group that includes trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, altoist James Spaulding, pianist Ronnie Mathews, bassist Jymie Merritt and, on "St. Louis Blues," Roland Alexander on soprano. Their music is essentially advanced hard-bop with a generous amount of space taken up by Roach's drum solos. The other three selections ("The Drum Also Waltzes," "Drums Unlimited" and "For Big Sid") are unaccompanied features for Max Roach and because of the melodic and logically-planned nature of his improvisations, they continually hold on to one's attention.

Leon Thomas ‎– Gold Sunrise On Magic Mountain

Even before his tenure with Pharoah Sanders, Santana and Archie Shepp, avant garde jazz vocalist Leon Thomas was a force to be reckoned with. Recorded live on June 18, 1971 at the Montreaux Jazz Festival, this performance showcases Tomas's ability to wow and amaze.

Occupying a precarious position between jazz and the occult, Thomas's performance is both pithy and wild. This probably has to do with the environment it was recorded in. When Thomas sings, "It's five o'clock in the morning," he isn't just reciting the standard blues lyrics - it actually was five o'clock in the morning. Regardless, the audience that had been crowded into the smoke filled casino since eight the previous evening was still eager for more only to be stopped by festival officials who had to pull the plug.

John Coltrane ‎– First Meditations (For Quartet)

There have been many excellent Trane posthumous releases (commercialized in 77), but this one might just be the best ever. Graced with an unusual sleeve (especially for the Impulse! label), First Meditations was recorded in the last days of the first quartet, but obviously shelved, and later re-worked during the transition with the second quartet, with two drummers and two saxes. As this release’s name might indicate, this is the first version of the Meditations album that Trane recorded and released with his second classic quartet, but the tracks are played by the Tyner, Elvin and Jimmy quartet, and believe me, this is a much friendlier train of thoughts than the “official” album.

Jackie & Roy ‎– East Of Suez

"Jackie Cain and Roy Kral are incapable of sounding down or being blue. East of Suez is another batch of delightfully upbeat material featuring their distinctive two-part vocal harmony, guaranteed to "turn your frown upside down." The program alternates between songs with lyrics and wordless vocal romps. Michael Franks' opening "Don't Be Blue" sets the tone and is followed by "D'Light," a Kral original featuring his piano, Paul Johnson's vibes, and the duo's "doo-dop-ooo-dah" scatting. The Johnny Mandel-Paul Williams composition, "Close Enough for Love," gives Cain an opportunity to demonstrate her beautiful way with a ballad. The title track is another wordless workout, while "Wings of Love" is a gorgeously swinging piece of romantic wistfulness. Bassist Brian Torff kicks off the Cain-Johnson collaboration, "Travelin'," a marvelously melodic invitation to hit the road, full of surprising musical curves and swerves. After the Alec Wilder pop tune "It's So Peaceful in the Country," East of Suez wraps up with a bebop finale, Bird and Dizzy's "Anthropology."

Herbie Hancock ‎– Mwandishi

A splendid album Mwandishi is the first of a perfect trilogy, and the only thing missing is probably a cool artwork as Crossings and Sextant have. But outside of this detail, Mwandishi is brilliant and the perfect introduction (or first step) to the more supersonic Crossings and the cosmic Sextant. This album got shot down by the specialized press and didn't sell in quantity, but the group survived by playing numerous concerts, thus getting even tighter live than in the studio. Outstanding stuff and there is better still to come.

Herbie Hancock ‎– Man-Child

Perhaps the funkiest album of Herbie Hancock's early- to mid-'70s jazz/funk/fusion era, Man-Child starts off with the unforgettable "Hang Up Your Hang Ups," and the beat just keeps coming until the album's end. "Sun Touch" and "Bubbles" are slower, but funky nonetheless. Hancock is the star on his arsenal of keyboards, but guitarist Wah Wah Watson's presence is what puts a new sheen on this recording, distinguishing it from its predecessors, Head Hunters and Thrust. Others among the all-star cast of soloists and accompanists include Wayne Shorter on soprano sax, Stevie Wonder on chromatic harmonica, and longtime Hancock cohort Bennie Maupin on an arsenal of woodwinds.

Freddie Hubbard ‎– Polar AC

Trumpeter Freddie Hubbard's sixth and final CTI studio recording has its moments although it is not on the same level as his first three. Hubbard, backed on four of the five songs by a string section arranged by either Don Sebesky or Bob James, is assisted on songs such as "People Make the World Go Round" and "Betcha By Golly, Wow" by flutist Hubert Laws and guitarist George Benson. "Son of Sky Dive" showcases his trumpet with a sextet including Laws and tenor-saxophonist Junior Cook. The music is enjoyable but not essential and this LP has yet to appear on CD.

Clifford Brown And Max Roach ‎– Study In Brown

This excellent album features tenor saxophonist Harold Land, pianist Richie Powell and bassist George Morrow. Max Roach accompanies the group brilliantly on drums, and it’s hard bop to the max, courtesy of one band that could have reached the heights in time.

Archie Shepp ‎– Yasmina, A Black Woman

There is some intriguing music on this 1969 recording. Tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp met up with members of the Chicago avant-garde school for the first time, including Art Ensemble of Chicago members Lester Bowie, Roscoe Mitchell and Malachi Favors, on the lengthy "Yasmina," a track that also includes drummers Philly Joe Jones, Art Taylor, and Sunny Murray. On "Sonny's Back," there is an unlikely tenor tradeoff between Shepp and Hank Mobley, while "Body and Soul" gives Shepp a showcase opportunity. Although this set is not essential, it is unique enough to be recommended to avant-garde collectors.
