Though not as relentlessly funky as his classic Blue Note debut Two Headed Freap, On the Avenue remains the most accomplished record of Ronnie Foster's career, proving commercial aspirations and accoutrements can indeed co-exist alongside traditional jazz sensibilities. Produced by George Benson and featuring the great Phil Upchurch on guitar and Marvin Chapell on drums, On the Avenue favors more mellow, nuanced grooves over the blistering funk of previous Foster outings. The velvety opener "Serenade to a Rock" and the title cut both draw heavily on Stevie Wonder's classic mid-'70s recordings, with a lithe cover of the Innervisions track "Golden Lady" further underlining the influence. Foster also expands his palette to include Afro-Cuban sounds ("Big Farm Boy Goes to a Latin City") and even assumes vocal duties for the first time on LP with "To See a Smile." Best of all is his rendition of Freddie Hubbard's "First Light"; arguably Foster's purest and most potent performance to date.

Reissue with latest DSD remastering. Comes with liner notes. With the cheers and huzzahs from their 1976 one-off reunion still resounding, the reconstituted Miles Davis Quintet minus Miles went on the road in 1977, spreading their 1965-vintage gospel according to the Prince of Darkness to audiences in Berkeley and San Diego, CA. In doing so, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams, plus interloper Freddie Hubbard seem to pick up where they left off, with a repertoire mostly new to the five collectively and developed from there.

Here's a gem fellows Wes Montgomery collectors. In the spring of 1964 Wes, at the highest peak of his successful career recorded this splendid session with the great Billy Taylor trio (Billy taylor piano, Ben Tucker double bass, Grady Tate drums) and Joe Williams on vocals (tunes 9-16). It is a wonderful studio date! The first eight tunes are instrumentals, with Wes in the leader's chair. The other tunes are sunged by Joe Williams and it's a delight for real. Don't think to buy this one only for the first eight tunes, Joe Williams sings in an extraordinary way here (Wes comps in those tunes very lightly adding some notes but never coming in the way of the piano which is the main background instrument).

Two years after its proper debut, Smokin' Granny released Tarth Shooke, a very different affair even though the most recent tracks off the previous album already indicated a change of direction. The music moves away from the avant-funk realm and more into an ambient progressive rock with King Crimson sparkles, very close to the Dark Aether Project…

I was the engineer on the recording sessions and I also made the masters for the original LP issues of these albums. Since the advent of the CD, other people have been making the masters. Mastering is the final step in the process of creating the sound of the finished product. Now, thanks to the folks at the Concord Music Group who have given me the opportunity to remaster these albums, I can present my versions of the music on CD using modern technology. I remember the sessions well, I remember how the musicians wanted to sound, and I remember their reactions to the playbacks. Today, I feel strongly that I am their messenger. — Rudy Van Gelder
