The Kenny Burrell Trio - A Night at the Vanguard (1990) [Bop]; FLAC  (tracks+.cue) - jazznblues.club

Some nice Burrell. But although it says here Chess it was an Argo release.

Basil Coetzee very very good on the title track here. One of my favourite records by non-emigrees from the period.

Both very good in very different ways. The Roscoe is "musical pointillism" if I were sat in Pseud's Corner.  Very deliberate use of space/time, lots of single notes from saxophone and/or the percussion.  All sounds very organic. I haven't enjoyed a RM release as much on first listen for ages.

I knew Mortazavi from his last solo album so was intrigued by the addition of beats. Works really well and is short and sweet at just over 20 minutes. It's on Tidal and Spotify.

I do like the Navarro/Holmes a lot despite it always sounding too short or unfulfilled in some way.  What makes you of it?

Rab, I'm not familiar with that one.  Looks very interesting.  Thanks for the heads-up. 

 

EDIT:  Just looking at this on discogs.  Yowza.  Expensive!  :o

It does have a slightly half chewed feel to it, but, like a lot of IA's releases, I'm impressed with the ease with which it fuses genres and creates something new. It's not my favourite but it's good, I think.

Circular township vamps with three horn players. It's a South African equivalent to the sort of groove based jazz you had in the US, I guess. 

As is often the case with the 70s SA jazz releases, the recording quality is a little lifeless, which is sad because the music is really all there.  But the soloing is really great, particularly Coetzee.
