I'm In Love
RCA, 1981. Very Good+
One of the real standouts in Evelyn King's career – a sharply focused album that's filled with catchy 80s styled tunes – and which benefits from some great help from a young Kashif! Lots of the tracks have that great flair for a catchy hook that mark's Evelyn's best work – an ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)

More Sorcery
Impulse, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Straight Life
CTI, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
An amazing second CTI set from Freddie Hubbard – one that takes off nicely from Red Clay territory, and starts to hit an even funkier mode! The tracks here are all relatively long, with a huge amount of solo space for Freddie on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, George Benson on guitar, and ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Midnight Love
Columbia, 1982. Very Good+
Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Don't Stop
World Pacific/Liberty, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Tight funky organ work from Billy Larkin and his hard-swingin Delegates combo! This stuff was the west coast equivalent of New Jersey organ combos – and you can bet your bippy that Billy & Co were blasting loud out of every jukebox on Central Ave during the 60s. This album's still got ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
GRT, 1970. Good+ Gatefold
Mindblowing work from Minnie Riperton – her first solo album, cut at the end of the 60s, after a number of years of work with the group Rotary Connection. The album builds off the now famous sound of Rotary Connection – but takes it to the next level, with arch-baroque production by ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)

Spring, 1982. Very Good+
On the floor and on the couch with Fatback – a record that's split into a "hot funk" side and a "mellow madness" one! The hot funk set continues the bass-heavy grooves that Fatback were famous for at the time – long jammers that take a 70s funk aesthetic into 80s ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Left & Right
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
An undisputed classic – and a key turning point in the career of Roland Kirk! The set has Roland leading a large group of musicians through a haunting batch of complicated tracks that clearly illustrate his much-heralded concept of Black Classical Music – a mixture of jazz, older ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Argo, 1961. Very Good+
Not just a wonderful record for the music, but also for the classic cover image too – a photo of Ahmad Jamal's righteous night club The Alhambra – an Eastern-themed spot on Chicago's Michigan Ave, where Jamal made some incredible music for a few short years! Jamal was one of the few ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Is It Really Me
Philips, 1965. Very Good+
A great little solo album from Israeli singer Esther Ofarim – a vocalist who's usually heard in the company of her husband Ari, but who's working here alone in New York City, with some really great arrangements from jazzman Bobby Scott! The style here is less poppy than Esther's other work ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Let It Bleed
London, 1969. Near Mint-
Hard to go wrong with a Stones classic like this one – a record that really has the group hitting their late 60s stride, and coming across with a depth and power that really goes beyond their earlier releases! There's a sinister quality to the record right from the start – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Arista Freedom, 1969. Very Good+
Groundbreaking sounds from the Norwegian scene of the late 60s – an album that's got George Russell's name on the cover, but which actually features brilliant performances from a quartet who'd go onto become huge names in the ECM scene of the 70s! Yet the sound here is quite different than ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Duas Vozes
ECM, 1985. Near Mint-
A beautiful pairing of these two Brazilian instrumentalists – captured with near-perfect ECM sound, in a space that offers up the full complexities of their music! Egberto Gismonti plays acoustic guitar, as well as piano and flute – and even sings a bit, just slightly – and Nana ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil)

Big Bambu
Ode, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
We don't know about you, but we never get tired of Cheech & Chong's jokes about reefer and East LA. Loads of great pot jokes on this album with the nice rolling paper gatefold sleeve, including "Sister Mary Elephant", "Ralph & Herbie", "Streets Of New York Or Los ... LP, Vinyl record album (Comedy/Spoken)

Adventure
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint-
Marquee Moon set the bar too high in eyes of the avant rock/post punk literati – so Television's nearly as great, but not as revolutionary Adventure never really got its due. Regardless, this is an incredible album, and entirely essential, too! They had already broken all of the new ground ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mumbles
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Risque
Atantic, 1979. Near Mint-
Niles Rodgers indelibly carved a place in history for himself with the handful of albums he cut with Chic at the tail end of the disco age. Slick, sophisticated pop soul with enough appeal to really get over, but a groove that you can't deny running throughout. This LP's worth it alone for "G ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bazuka
A&M, 1975. Near Mint-
A pretty nice little album of soulful instrumental tracks – arranged, composed, and produced by Tony Camillo, who'd done some fine work in previous years for hit artists like Honey Cone, Freda Payne, and Chairmen Of The Board. These tracks have much more of a funky electric approach – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sugar
Reprise, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Though one of her groovy Hazlewood produced albums, she only does two Hazlewood-penned tunes on this one: "Coastin", and "Sugar Town". The rest of the songs are the old-timey standards like "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Vagabond Shoes", "Let's Fall In ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Disco-fied
ABC, 1976. Near Mint-
Sure, the group might have been a throwaway pop disco combo – but they sure left us with some nice moments! If you take them at face value, you'd put them at the bottom of a long list of 70s disco artists that were here today, gone tomorrow. But if you listen to some of their classic ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)

Danca Das Cabecas
ECM, 1977. Near Mint-
A really unique moment for Brazilian genius Egberto Gismonti – as the album marks a strong move away from some of the fuller orchestrations of his previous sets! The album features Gismonti on acoustic 8 string guitar – mixed with piano, wood flutes, and voice – plus some sublime ... LP, Vinyl record album (Brazil)

Prestige, Mid/Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
70's 2-fer that brings together 2 of Jackie McLean's classic bop albums for Prestige – Lights Out and 4, 5, & 6. The groups include Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Elmo Hope, and Mal Waldron. The tracks are longish, and McLean's tone is very raw, much rawer than on some of his Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Le Spank
AVI, 1977. Near Mint-
Seems throwaway from the package – which has a bare ass being spanked on the cover – but the album's actually a pretty slick batch of jazzy disco tracks from the great Rinder & Lewis team! The cornerstone of the album's the group's 10 minute groover "Le Spank" – a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner, 1968. Near Mint-
An early funk album by Bill Cosby – with backing by the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Bill was pals with Charles Wright and crew in the hip LA of the late 60s, and he was also responsible for bringing the group to Warner Brothers – so the fit here is quite a natural one. The record ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Experiment
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint-
A wonderful session of hip soul jazz tracks from Freddie Hubbard – mostly short tight and groovy, but played with a sophisticated style that points the way towards the soul jazz sound of the 70s. Soul Experiment is a fitting title – as Freddie works hard with hip players like Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Behind The 8 Ball
Argo/Chess, 1964. Near Mint- (reissue)
Classic hard-hitting organ jazz session by this great Chicago keyboard player, better known to the world for his two Blue Note LPs, but playing here in a style that's much more creative, and much more open-ended than on those LPs. He's got a tight trio here, with Ben White on guitar and Jerry ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Orchestra Arranged & Conducted By Michel Legrand
Mainstream, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautiful collaboration between Sarah Vaughan and Michel Legrand – and easily one of Sarah's greatest albums of the 70s! As he was doing with other singers at the time, Legrand helps Vaughan hit a new level of sophistication here – bringing in tunes that really get past simple pop ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists)

Early Visions
Chess, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
24 tracks that perfectly illustrate all that was great about Gene Ammons in his early days – a set of singles and 78s recorded for Chess in the late 40s and early 50s, featuring players that include Tom Archia, Matthew Gee, Junior Mance, Sonny Stitt, and Bill Massey. Titles include "Do ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Concierto
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Jim Hall's most compelling albums from the 70s – a mix of lightly swinging tunes and more complicated numbers, recorded with some of his best partners from earlier years! Chet Baker is on trumpet, Paul Desmond is on alto sax – and the rest of the group includes Ron Carter bass, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
First Circle
ECM, 1984. Near Mint-
Arguably the last great album to come from the classic Pat Metheny collaboration with Lyle Mays – a record that's tightened up considerably from some of the group's earlier efforts, but which gives as its reward some wonderfully compelling tunes! Pat's still very much influenced here by a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hoochie Coochie Man
Verve, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
Jimmy pays tribute to an earlier generation of R&B – in a hard-wailing set of soul jazz, done with backings from the legendary Oliver Nelson! A few tracks feature vocals by Jimmy, in a rough bluesy style, and others have some harmonica by Buddy Lucas – in a raspy, hard-wailing mode ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Porgy & Bess
Columbia, 1958. Near Mint-
Way more than just a simple version of work from Porgy & Bess – and instead, a key collaboration between Miles Davis and Gil Evans – done with a sound that really transforms the tunes! True, the work here is all based on George Gershwin's original compositions – but through ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Discovered Again!
Sheffield Labs, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
To tell the truth, we didn't know he'd ever been lost – but who cares anyway, as the album captures Dave in his best 70s fusion mode! The album's got some great mellow tunes that bubble along with a sweet electric feel – gliding in that Grusin way that was never that funky, but which ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Skull Session
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautiful bit of funky jazz – and one of the unsung gems in the early 70s Flying Dutchman catalog! Oliver Nelson leads a number of different groups that are filled with funky electric players – like Mike Wofford, Lonnie Liston Smith, and Denis Budimir – and the record's filled ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)
