Moodymann- Black Mahogani (2004)
>deep house, downtempo, nu jazz
>a compilation album from Detroit producer Moodymann that collects some of his previous vinyl tracks and a few new ones. Mellow, jazzy, and groovy.
Yosvany Terry- New Throned King (2014)
>Cuban Arara, Latin Cantos, Afro-fusion
>Saxophonist Yosvany Terry composed this music based on cantos from the Arara, a secretive spiritual brotherhood in Cuba and Haiti. The music mixes these rhythms and chants with jazz-based improvisations and harmonic functions for some extremely creative and engaging music.
Włodzimierz Nahorny Trio- Heart (1967)
>adventurous swing-based free improvisation
>Multi-instrumentalist Wlodzimierz Nahorny begins and ends this record at the piano, for some fairly straightforward trio pieces along the lines of Bill Evans. He switches over to saxophone for the rest of the album for pieces that are very free and full of exciting and engaging enterplay between the trio. Number 15 in the ‘Polish Jazz’ series.

Bernard Hermann- Vertigo Soundtrack (1958)
>Hermann's score for the classic Hitchcock film draws influence from composers like Wagner in the lush string arrangements and suits the tense and psychological nature of the film perfectly. The music also stands up well on it's own for those who have never seen the film.
Billy Hart- Sixty-Eight (2011)
>post-bop, free jazz
>This is Hart’s sixty-eighth recording on SteepleChase, but his first as a leader. The lineup is trumpet, alto, vibes, piano, bass and then Hart on drums. The playing is loose and abstract and there is a lot of high-level interplay from the players.
Mucho Macho Machito (1948-49)
>Afro-Cuban jazz, mambo
>Machito was one of the leading percussionists who worked with American bebop players in the 40's to begin to define Cuban/jazz fusion. This is a compilation of some of his best recordings with his big band.
Turtle Island String Quartet- Metropolis (1989)
>This long-standing quartet performs creative arrangements of jazz compositions and also new compositions inspired by rock, pop, jazz, and Latin music.
Brian Lynch- ConClave (2005)
>Trumpet player Brian Lynch has been a big name in both the jazz and Latin music scenes since the 80’s. Here he gathers his own band to perform exciting and adventurous post-bop jazz with an overt Latin flavor.
Chico Hamilton Quintet in HiFi (1956)
>cool jazz, hard bop, avant-garde, third stream
>This was one of the first studio recordings by Chico’s group which was released on the Pacific Jazz label. Fred Katz’s cello playing always gives this group a unique sound, but it is their contrapuntal style of improvisation that really makes them interesting. This record features some of the group’s original compositions, as well as a some interesting takes on standards.
Kenny Wheeler- The Long Waiting (2012)
>big band, modern jazz
>Legendary trumpeter Kenny Wheeler just passed away this past September at 84 years old. This recording was one of the last big projects he did. It’s an original work for big band, with extremely well written and orchestrated parts. What really makes the music interesting is the wordless vocal part (sung by Diane Turturo) which acts almost as just another instrument in the big band.
