Jazz Crusaders - Live At The Lighthouse '66 Live At The Lighthouse '66
Jazz New - LP ST 20098 Pacific Jazz
Sealed 1966 Stereo Original Housed In A Heavy-Duty Gatefold Cover. “Because The Jazz Crusaders In The Early '70s Dropped The "Jazz" From Their Name And Later In The Decade Veered Much Closer To R&B And Pop Music Than They Had Earlier, It Is Easy To Forget Just How Strong A Jazz Group They Were In The 1960s. This CD Reissues One Of Their Rarer Sessions, Augmenting The Original Seven-Song LP Program (Highlighted By "Blues Up Tight," "Doin' That Thing," And "Milestones") With Previously Unissued Versions Of "'Round Midnight" And John Coltrane's "Some Other Blues." The Jazz Crusaders (Comprised Of Tenor Saxophonist Wilton Felder, Trombonist Wayne Henderson, Pianist Joe Sample, Drummer Stix Hooper, And, During This Period, Bassist Leroy Vinnegar) Are Heard In Prime Form. Felder Shows The Strong Influence Of Coltrane, Henderson Recalls J.J. Johnson, Sample Displays The Most Originality And The Quintet On A Whole (With Its Tenor-Trombone Frontline) Sounds Quite Distinctive. An Excellent Set Of Primarily Straight-Ahead (But Soulful) Jazz.” Scott Yanow, AMG.... more details

Jazz Crusaders - Lighthouse '68 Lighthouse '68
Jazz New - LP ST 20131 Pacific Jazz
Sealed 1968 Gatefold Stereo Original Recorded Live In Hermosa Beach. “Lighthouse '68 Is The Third Date The Jazz Crusaders Cut At The Popular California Venue. Previous Outings Recorded Here, Though Very Fine, Carried The Sonic Weight Of A Band Very Aware Of Their Audience And That They Were Making Live Records. Here, They Get It Completely Right. …..This Is One The Most Intimate Jazz Shows Captured On Tape During The 1960s. It Gives Record Buyers The Sound Of A Band In Full Possession Of Their Considerable Capabilities, Celebrating Them In A Relaxed Environment, Playing Their Own Brand Of Grooved-Out '60s Jazz. What Is Most Apparent Is How Seamlessly The Jazz Crusaders Wove Together Hard Bopping Blues, Soul-Jazz, Horace Silver's Funky Rhythmic Ideas, And Gospel. One Listen To The Set's Opener, "Oogo-Boo-Ga-Loo," With Its Funky Strut And Call-And-Response Chorus, Brings The Sunday Morning Church Music To The Saturday Discotheque For A Workout. As It Cascades Into "Eleanor Rigby," Sample's Solo Goes Deeply Into The Blues For His Inspiration And Comes Out With A Funky Panoply Of Cadences That Are Double-Timed And Stretched Out Into A Loping Soul Groove By The Rhythm Section Before The Horns Bring The Melody Back With Finger-Popping Assent. Sample's Street-Smart "Never Had It So Good" Offers An Elongated Front Line With A Summer Stroll Through A Latin Theme Before Erupting Into Deep Soul. But The Kicker Is In Buster Williams' Compositions. As A Jazz Composer, Williams Was Closely Aligned With Hard Bop As It Evolved. His Expansive Rhythms, Smooth Melodic Lines, And Tight Harmonic Palette Offered Soloists A Chance To Stretch His Grooves Further, Bringing Modality -- As First Articulated By Miles Davis' Mid-'60s Quintet -- And A Warm Yet Expressed Sophistication To His Tunes (Check "Native Dancer" With Its Latin Tinge And The Shimmering Melodic Pulse Of "The Emperor," Which Gives Way To The Set's Closer, A Graceful, Profoundly Subtle, And Gorgeous Reading Of John Coltrane's "Impressions"). In Sum, This Record Delivers What Most Records Only Promise: It Literally Sings With Great Musicianship Displayed With Verve And Acumen, Along With A Warm Human Feeling That Amounts To Joy.” Thom Jurek, AMG.... more details

Jazz New - LP ST 43 Pacific Jazz
Sealed 1962 Deep Groove, Blue And Silver Label Stereo Original Housed In A Laminated Jacket. Cut Corner And Bottom Left Corner Of Rear Jacket Has A Discolored Patch (See 2nd Scan), Hence Reduced Price. “The Jazz Crusaders' Second Recording Is Most Notable For The Introduction Of Wayne Henderson's "The Young Rabbits," The Best-Known Of The Seven Group Originals Which Are Performed On This LP Along With "Song Of India" And Leonard Bernstein's "Tonight." The Tenor-Trombone Frontline Created By Wilton Felder And Henderson, Along With The Funky Yet Swinging Playing Of Pianist Joe Sample, Drummer Stix Hooper And Bassist Jimmy Bond On This Hard-To-Find Set Made The Group Instantly Recognizable And Surprisingly Popular From The Start.” Scott Yanow, AMG.... more details
