"Chico Hamilton Trio: Introducing Freddie Gambrell"
While a lot of this thread has centered around psychedelic RnB and exotica, we are going to take a look at a unique bop pianist who did not get near the recognition he deserved, Freddie Gambrell. You can read more about Freddie in the review posted below.

Although Ayre Rayde was one of the top Go-Go bands in Washington DC, they left behind very few studio recordings, in fact, as far as I know, only one, "Sock it to Me", which also comes on a 4 track re-mix EP.  Go-Go music in general rarely gets the sort of coverage that it should get and there are probably more missed recording opportunities of good music out there from where this track comes from.
For those not familiar with Go-Go, its one of the most African influenced popular music styles born in the US, and most of the bands are in the Washington DC area.

More about the band:

Herbie Hancock      (CTI) "In Concert Volume II"
Don't be fooled by the names on the videos. Turrentine and Hubbard do appear on a few tracks on this album, but this is definitely a Herbie Hancock album. Okay, Herbie is hardly an obscure figure in the world of jazz, but how many of you have ever checked out this record. This album probably contains the most fierce and imaginative playing in Hancock's entire career, he is on fire on this one. The two listening cuts provided here are from the Chicago concert. They are intense, but the cuts from the Detroit concert are even better, unfortunately they are not on youtube yet. Just get the record and you can hear the whole thing.

Hadley Caliman    "Iapetus"
While Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis were releasing their psychedelic fusion opuses, the lesser known Hadley Caliman and Todd Cochran released this gem that holds up very well against the albums from the more famous Miles and Herbie.

The review:

Julian Priester    "Love Love"

When Julian Priester and Pat Gleeson, from Herbie Hancock's Sextet, put out their own psychedelic opus, they brought along the two main musicians from the above album, "Iapetus". Those two musicians were Hadley Caliman on woodwinds and Todd Cochran (Under his African name) on keyboards. This made the ensemble on "Love Love" sort of a psych fusion super group.

Hear O Israel feat: Herbie Hancock. Hear, O Israel is the recorded version of a jazz concert comprised of lyric and sacred material from the Friday night prayer service in a Jewish synagogue. - Not so easy to find in the wild but re issues by Trunk a little while back.

Garrett Saracho    "En Medio"

The ongoing "jazz is Dead" series recently featured Garrett (Gary) Saracho on keyboards. Its been a long time since we heard from Saracho. His one album as leader, "En Medio", was released in 1973 and is an extravagant affair with a mix of Latin grooves, psychedelic fusion electronics, free jazz blowing and even some neo-classical interludes.

Who knew there was such a thing as a 'Led Zeppelin Suite'.  Giovanni Falzone's clever and complex big band arrangements bring out some new possibilities in these otherwise worn out hard rock anthems.

What a weird coincidence, I was just about to feature them on here as a follow up to the Led Zep post.  

Anywho, here is the full Jazz Sabbath album:

"The Night of the Purple Moon" is one of Sun Ra's more unique outings as it features him with a small group playing 60s lounge jazz in that way that only Sonny can.
