Label it's on is Phono. Lou Levy and Conte were a terrific comper-soloist pair; at times you can hear Conte completing in the next breath an idea that sprang right from Lou's comping. And Marable is really popping.

Was lucky enough to catch both Conte and Lou live - same festival but not together. Both wonderful players. Conte I remember as being full of ideas and enthusiasm - with excellent trumpet technique.

Yeah can’t wait to spin them :) Was looking for them for quite a while. They have to be shipped from Japan so I have to be patient...

R-2644258-1310678195.jpeg.jpg

R-13088021-1547841944-1075.jpeg.jpg

Two relatively early Paquito albums, post-Irakere.

 

R-2831325-1311222725.jpeg.jpg

This Lee Konitz LP is an "upgrade" from emusic.com downloads to vinyl.  

 

R-1165512-1320830901.jpeg.jpg

This Bill Hardman album was produced by Bob Porter, always a good sign.  After only having heard Walter Bishop's "Coral Keys" from this LP, I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of it.

I made my first visit today to Houston's Cactus Music in a year.  Felt good to browse in a real record store again.  Everyone wore masks, and they asked customers to hand-sanitize before shopping.  Pretty good haul:

Paul Winter Consort - Icarus (Living Music reissue)

Oregon/Elvin Jones Together (Vanguard)

Junior Mance - Live At The Top (Guest Artist: David Newman) (Atlantic)

Herbie Mann Live At Newport (Atlantic)

Johnny Hammond Smith - Imagination (Warwick)

And for 97 cents each:

Keith Jarrett - Spirits (ECM)

Bennie Wallace - Twilight Time (Blue Note)

Sam Most - Flute Flight (Xanadu)

Just snagged this LP off ebay:

R-15384117-1590664339-8612.jpeg.jpg

Hermeto Pascoal E Grupo - Lagoa Da Canoa Município De Arapiraca (Happy Hour/Som Da Gente, 1984)

Hermeto's most well known album is probably Slaves Mass (Warner Brothers, 1977), a superb, strange, and deliciously uncategorizable record.  But I think his recordings from the following decade -- with his "Grupo" -- are even better.  The band, which came together in 1981, consisted of Hermeto, Jovino Santos Neto (kybd, fl), Itiberê Zwarg (b, tu), Carlos Malta (sax, fl), Márcio Bahia (d, perc), and Pernambuco (perc).  The group stayed together for twelve years.  Since they rehearsed constantly with Pascoal serving as a mentor and quasi-guru (in an almost Sun Ra-like way), they developed near-telepathic levels of interaction and memorized massive quantities of Pascoal's music. 

The four astonishing albums that they made during the 1980s -- Hermeto Pascoal & Grupo (1982), Lagoa Da Canoa Município De Arapiraca (1984), Brasil Universo (1986), and Só Não Toca Quem Não Quer (1987) -- deserve to be MUCH more well known.  Finding this music on CD or LP (at a reasonable price) can be a bit of a challenge.  Fortunately, most of it is available on the internet.  To listen to Lagoa Da Canoa Município De Arapiraca, click here
