A couple recent favorites...
Had been seeing the Frank Foster joint all over message boards as of late and a recent trip to Philly saw me find it in a dope record spot. Great album. The B side is where it's at though.
The Alan Lorber record is dope! It actually took me a while to figure out what was on the cover of this one. Trippy. Indian influence spacey, lounge music. Ahh the 60's had some gems for real. The whole record is solid from front to back. I like Alan's take on the classic, "Up, Up, and Away".
And Gil Melle's "Tome VI" is a nice album with free-jazz-ish tunes and it is all electric instruments. The back says it is "the first electronic jazz album". Either way, it's a good listen for jazz heads.
