Prince Lasha

Born:

To many jazz fans, the name of Prince Lasha will be an unknown quantity. The reason for that is in part that he hasn’t too many records out.

The one piece that will still be on the mind of jazz fans already around in the sixties is a composition entitled ”The Cry”. Lasha recorded it in 1962 in a quintet version also featuring Sonny Simmons for the famous West Coast company Contemporary. When the record appeared to enthusiastic reviews by ”Down Beat” magazine it blew a fresh wind into the jazz scene

Julius Hemphill: The Boyé Multi-National Crusade For Harmony

Read "The Boyé Multi-National Crusade For Harmony" reviewed by Mark Corroto


There is something inherently objectionable when a billionaire acquires an artistic masterpiece by say, Leonardo DaVinci or Claude Monet, only to sequester it from public view. You might feel the same about Julius Hemphill's recordings Dogon A.D. (Mbari, 1972) and 'Coon Bid'ness (Arista/Freedom, 1975). Both five star recordings, now out of print, cost a small fortune ...

Eric Dolphy: Musical Prophet:The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions

Read "Musical Prophet:The Expanded 1963 New York Sessions" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


Eric Dolphy's lone Blue Note album, 1964's Out To Lunch! is rightly regarded as a classic but the two records he made for the short-lived Douglas label just before that, Conversations (1963) and Iron Man (1963), have been largely forgotten, due in part to being out-of-print for many years. Now the Resonance label has done something ...
