He found a kindred spirit in fellow avant gardist, pianist Jaki Byard, whom he met in Maynard Ferguson’s 1959 band, and who was part of two stimulating albums Ellis made that broke with traditional jazz practices, “How Time Passes” and “New Ideas”.

Walt Dickerson: The Complete New Jazz Recordings (CD: Solar, 2 CDs)Walt Dickerson: The Complete New Jazz Recordings (CD: Solar, 2 CDs)
Vibraphonist Walt Dickerson led a quartet (piano, bass, drums) on four albums for the New Jazz label in 1961/62, all of which are included here on a double CD. All these records were highly rated by Down Beat magazine at the time, particularly the final one "To My Queen": "Judged from any musical standpoint – conception, phrasing, dynamic, technical execution, time, what have you – these four men must be voted laurels for one of the choice performances of the year".

Walt Dickerson: Tell Us Only The Beautiful Things (CD: Candid)Walt Dickerson: Tell Us Only The Beautiful Things (CD: Candid)
Material from the “Why Not” Series – Until now unheard for nearly two decades – showcasing cutting edge jazz from the 1970’S. Walt Dickerson (1931 – 2008) was a true original with a unique sound and distinctive approach to the

vibraphone. Bursting onto the embryonic “free jazz” scene he made a real impact being voted “New Star of 1962” in the prestigious Down Beat critics poll. Recorded in 1975 in Philadelphia - Walt’s distinctive melodic and rhythmic approach was complemented by his unique timbre created though the use of specially treated rubber mallets to produce a plush, warm and yet crisp sound. Featuring Chicago bassist Wilbur Ware and fellow Philadelphian Andrew Cyrille, creating a trio par excellence. Originally released on the “Why Not” label this album fell into obscurity until Candid Record’s Alan Bates acquired the label in the late 1990s. In 2009 Candid bring these fantastic recordings back from the brink. (Proper Music)

Dave Pike: Four Classic Albums (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic album series with a re-mastered 2CD release by Dave Pike, complete with original artwork and liner notes. "It's Time For Dave Pike"; "Pike's Peak"; "Bossa Nova Carnival" and "Limbo Carnival".

Perhaps not the first name that springs to mind when we think of jazz vibes players, nonetheless our latest (unsung) jazz hero, Dave Pike had an amazing career starting with his debut performance in 1958 with the Paul Bley Quartet. Our first two releases find Dave in a more traditional vibes mode, but take a look at the pianist on Pike's Peak and it will indicate how well he was thought of back then, none other than the legendary Bill Evans joins Dave at his "steamtable" for a fine set of almost "jamming session" intensity. "Besame Mucho" here points to the direction Pike was heading in for our final two albums, namely down South America way for a brace of the finest Latin flavoured jazz available! Artists Dave Pike has worked with include Herbie Mann, Kenny Clarke, Curtis Counce, Harold Land, Elmo Hope, Dexter Gordon, Tommy Flanagan, Paul Bley and of course, Bill Evans. (AVID Entertainment)

Ahmed Abdul-Malik: Four Classic Albums (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)Ahmed Abdul-Malik: Four Classic Albums (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz continues with its Four Classic album series with a re-mastered 2CD release by Ahmed Abdul-Malik, complete with original artwork and liner notes. "Jazz Sahara"; "East Meets West"; "The Music of Ahmed Abdul-Malik" and "Sounds of Africa".

Born in Brooklyn to either Sudanese or Caribbean parents, (it seems unclear which??), Ahmed Abdul-Malik was born either with that name or changed it from Jonathan Tim? Given the musical route he was later to take, it would seem likely that the Sudanese parentage story may well be accurate! He began taking musical lessons from a very early age and was enrolled in the Vardi School of Music where he was taught violin, viola, piano, cello, bass and tuba. He began his professional musical career playing hard bop bass before recording a string of ground breaking Middle Eastern flavoured albums where he was featured playing the oud (a double stringed, unfretted Middle Eastern lute). This blend of jazz and Middle Eastern music became very popular at the time and the albums which we feature here on our 2CD set were critically lauded at the time and over the years have come to be appreciated as way ahead of their time in their blend of jazz and what we now call "world music". Artists Malik has played with include John Coltrane, Johnny Griffin, Randy Weston, Art Blakey and Thelonious Monk. (AVID Entertainment)

George Russell: Ezz-thetics (CD: Riverside Keepnews Collection)
George Russell is listed in the Encyclopedia of Jazz as "composer, piano, educator" and all of these are accurate descriptions of this dynamic musical revolutionary. But in the early Sixties he also spent some exciting years as a bandleader, presenting his Lydian and pan-tonal concepts in action and helping vitally in the rise to prominence of two significant innovators of the period: Eric Dolphy and Don Ellis. Both men play major roles in this 1961 album by probably the best of Russell's small groups, which includes one of Dolphy's most lasting celebrated recorded efforts--his astonishing bass clarinet solo on the Thelonious Monk classic, "'Round Midnight."

Ron Carter: Third Plane (CD: Milestone- US Import)
The trio of pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams is jazz history, from their five years together as Miles Davis's rhythm section in 1963-68 to their frequent collaborations together in the recording studio. Carter assembled the three during his days as a Milestone recording artist, at a time when occasional work together in the V.S.O.P. Quintet had sharpened their interactive brilliance. The program chosen includes three of the bassist's own originals and Williams's snappish "Lawra," in addition to the recasting of Miles Davis favorite "Stella by Starlight" as a waltz and Hancock's evocative "Dolphin Dance," all played with a unity of purpose that does indeed elevate the music to another place.

Ron Carter's Great Big Band (CD: Sunnyside)Ron Carter's Great Big Band (CD: Sunnyside)
World famous jazz bassist Ron Carter, who has played with everybody from Miles Davis to Herbie Hancock and has appeared on over 2,500 albums - releases his first ever big band album as a leader. The legendary bassist Ron Carter had accomplished nearly everything a jazz musician could. He had appeared on thousands of recordings, performed with legends, and had led revered ensembles. One thing he hadn’t done was led a big band. On the new CD Ron Carter’s Great Big Band recorded for Sunnyside, Carter finally got to be at the helm of 17 piece large ensemble. Assisted by arranger Bob Freedman and producer Wendy MacDonald, the ensemble took on an eclectic program of compositions by a handful of jazz masters, including Carter himself. (Proper Music)

Ken McIntyre with Eric Dolphy: Looking Ahead (CD: New Jazz/ Fantasy)
The largely overlooked figure of McIntyre enjoyed his finest hour in the company of Eric Dolphy on this ebulliently sunny set. Few records of 'new jazz' exude such good fun. A strong rhythm section grounded in bebop of Walter Bishop Jr, Sam Jones and Art Taylor drive the conversational altos and flutes of two jazzmen clearly enjoying June 1960. 'Head Shakin' is a notably engaging cut featuring a wonderfully inquiring but swinging Dolphy solo which looks ahead whilst harking back to the blues from earlier decades . Though never as distinctively rarified a voice, the leader contributes his own speech-like statements with much character and beauty. Progressive jazz at its most exuberant.
