Rumbler
Release Date: 1/20/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

"Magical...No matter where Anschell plays on the keyboard, he sounds like no other pianist." - JazzTimes. After a decade of recording mostly unscripted, improvised albums focused on his deep musical relationships with a few key players, pianist Bill Anschell returns to recording his own compositions and arrangements on "Rumbler," his fifteenth as a leader or co-leader. Anschell penned eight of the eleven tracks as well as arrangements of Thelonious Monk's "Misterioso" and Paul McCartney's "For No One." Mostly written on the road in planes and hotel rooms, "Rumbler" doubles as a musical travelogue, especially vivid in its reflection of experiences from his touring in South America over the last several years. Anschell is joined by a stellar cast of Seattle musicians, plus a guest appearance by Nashville saxophonist Jeff Coffin on the title track.The album closes with a moving, fully improvised solo expression of Duke Ellington's under-recorded "Reflections in D."

List Price: (B19) $19.98 

What better way to inaugurate Ace's series of CDs, taken directly from the original acetates of King and De Luxe Records, than with 24 of the classic early recordings of one of R&B's most legendary names? With the exception of 2 tracks (for which the acetates did not survive), this contains at least one version of every track from every session that Roy Brown cut during 1947. It's long been believed that most of these versions were destroyed in a warehouse fire in 1948. They are being heard publicly for the first time since they were recorded! (Previously deleted:11/1/14.

Fusing two of his loves - music and philosophy - drummer Gustavo Cortiñas gathers fellow musicians from his adopted home of Chicago to contemplate, through composition and improvisation, the relationship between essence and being. Inspired by the ongoing dialogue of some of the most brilliant minds in western philosophy, Gustavo composed music to illustrate their concepts of 'being' and the effect those thoughts had on the formation of metaphysical, ethical, and moral theories. Born and raised in Mexico City, Cortiñas graduated with honors from New Orleans' Loyola University and moved to Chicago in 2011 to pursue his Masters at Northwestern University. "A Smörgåsbord of the moods and nuances that make up the human experience... intrinsically fusing the personal to the universal..." Jazziz Magazine.

Pianist Buddy Johnson led a large jump blues band that enjoyed tremendous success during the 1940s and ‘50s. The suave bandleader spotlighted a series of talented singers, including balladeers Arthur Prysock, Nolan Lewis, and Floyd Ryland, but it was his sister Ella’s understated delivery (beautifully spotlighted on the sumptuous ballad “Since I Fell for You”) and Buddy’s crisply danceable “Walk-Em Rhythm” that made the aggregation so successful for so long.

Second Chance - The Complete Barry! And Columbia Recordings
Release Date: 2/10/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (B19) $19.98 

Kent have compiled Thelma Jones's complete 1960s recordings for the Barry! label, plus all of her issued 1970s Columbia masters. "Second Chance" offers full proof that all that prevented Thelma Jones from becoming a fully fledged soul superstar was bad luck. Just as her record The House That Jack Built was shaping up to be massive in 1968, Aretha Franklin covered it and had the hit that should have been Thelma's. Despite having a radio hit with the well-remembered Salty Tears in 1976, she found herself swimming against the tide of disco and unable to place any of her Columbia recordings on the charts. But what Thelma lacked in chart presence she more than made up for in soul. (Previously deleted:9/1/11. Original release date:6/1/07)

Ultimate Jaco Pastorious
Release Date: 1/20/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A9) $9.98 

Renowned as the most important electric bassist in the history of jazz, Jaco Pastorius was a revolutionary figure in modern music. He not only drastically changed the position and function of the bass in popular music, but he stands as a true original, unlike anyone who came before him and influencing everyone who followed. Ultimate Jaco Pastorius traces the highlights of his career, beginning with Charlie Parker's Donna Lee from his self-titled debut recording on Epic. To most music fans, Jaco is known through his work with the groundbreaking and hugely successful jazz group, Weather Report. Jaco's Barbary Coast and perhaps his best-known composition, Teen Town, exhibit his astounding contributions to one of the most important bands in the history of jazz. Jaco's association with Joni Mitchell was a musical marriage made in heaven, as exhibited by Jaco's tantalizing bass playing and brilliant arrangement on The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines. Upon signing on with Warner Bros. in 1980, Jaco created the masterpiece Word of Mouth, which adeptly fuses the various styles and sounds that have informed his music. Jaco's classic compositions 3 Views of a Secret and Liberty City in addition to his brilliant treatment of Lennon & McCartney's Blackbird are featured here. Finally, Jaco took the band on the road, which was documented on the live recordings Invitation and The Birthday Concert. To hear classic Pastorius vehicles like Invitation and Soul Intro/The Chicken in a live setting is truly astounding. Whether you are a longtime fan of his or need a perfect introduction to Jaco's breathtaking talent, Ultimate Jaco Pastorius is the perfect career overview, the Best of the Best of the Greatest Bass Player in the World.

Heart To Heart
Release Date: 1/20/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A9) $9.98 

Alto saxophonist David Sanborn is without question the most influential player of his generation. Sanborn had already made three solo recordings, but with the 1978 release of Heart to Heart, the saxophonist's distinctive sound and unique perspective was represented properly on record. This most ambitious recording covers many bases, with melodic pop (Solo), funky jazz (Heba) and soulful gospel (Sunrise Gospel), with a standard thrown in (Anywhere I Wander). Of particular note are David's gorgeous interpretation of the Don Grolnick ballad Lotus Blossom and Short Visit, which was arranged by jazz great Gil Evans. Heart to Heart is a fully-realized artistic statement by a modern jazz master.

During World War II band leader Ambrose signed up Anne Shelton as a replacement for forces sweetheart Vera Lynn who was leaving the band.

Anne was a guest on four of Glenn Miller’s radio shows whilst he was entertaining the troops in England. Glenn Miller suggested that when World War II was over Anne she should go Stateside and work with him, but with Glenn’s demise this was not to be, however Anne did go to the USA in the fifties and was a great success, sadly it was not with Glenn Miller. On this CD she sings a selection of American standards which she might have performed with Glenn Miller’s Orchestra had he survived.

List Price: (B14) $14.98 

The self-produced album turned up some of Paul Roberts best songs, including their last stab at the charts, "Hungry Eyes". Maybe a little understated for Top Of The Pops in '82, nonetheless this material stands the test of time, in a way that many of its contemporaries do not. From the sophisticated packaging, featuring another of lead singer Paul Robert's stunning paintings, through to the fine playing of some of London's most seasoned musicians and the excellent songwriting, this album is quality from top to bottom.

Format: LP
List Price: (B25) $25.98 

In 1972 as the lineup of Funkadelic that had made the first three albums collapsed in on themselves, some members shuttled back and forth between Detroit and Toronto and kept recording.

The original album of five tracks includes some prime era Funkadelic grooves including the outrageous "Rat Kiss The Cat On The Navel" and "Be What You Is" which are both uptempo psychedelic funk, as well as the wonderful gospel-imbued vocals of Gary Shider on the opener "This Broken Heart". An album reached test-pressing stage, but was never released. Limited edition vinyl. (Previously deleted:1/1/14. Original release date:4/10/09)

Spreadin' Rhythm Around
Release Date: 1/20/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

So talented a musician and entertainer was Fats (his boundless energy and spontaneous wit seemed never-ending) that one tends to overlook the fact that he had something in excess of 300 compositions to his credit, many of them set to lyrics by his lifelong friend Andy Razaf. He studied piano under some of the finest classical teachers around at the time and although he was influenced by such jazz and ragtime greats as Willie “The Lion” Smith and “Lucky” Roberts, there is no doubt that the man who had the greatest effect upon his piano-playing was James P. Johnson, who taught him the rudiments of the well-known Harlem “stride” piano and remained his revered friend and colleague to the end.
