Popcorn (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A traditional spiritual number – but one that gets a great soul workout here in two different versions! Linda Hopkins and Jackie Wilson trade lead lyrics on their version – alongside a big chorus that lifts the whole thing up to heavenly proportions, while a tight combo keeps the groove at the core! A similar combo makes the flipside groove too – and Big Maybelle really knocks it out of the park with her vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Chocolate Syrup/Jimmy Briscoe & The Little BeaversBattle Of The Bands Round 4 (Chocolate Syrup vs Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers) ... CD
Sequel (UK), Early 70s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A selection of rare group soul singles by two obscure east coast indie groups! Chocolate Syrup are an excellent act – great at mellow tunes and funky ones, and represented here by he funky instrumental "The Penguin Breakdown", plus the vocal cuts "We've Got To Get Together", "You've Got a Lot To Give", "Just In The Nick of Time", and "Who You Tryin' To Fool Girl". Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers are better known – as they had one or two radio hits on the east coast – and were a youthful soul act in the tradition of The Five Stairsteps, Ponderosa Twins, and The Sylvers. They're represented by their hit single "My Ebony Princess", plus the tracks "True Love", "I Only Feel This Way When I'm With You", and "You're My Love, My Life, My Soul". The set has 20 cuts in all – 10 by each act – and it may well be the best way you'll ever find work by these guys! CD

New Oliver Nelson/King Curtis/Jimmy ForrestSoul Battle ... LP
Prestige, 1960. Used .... Out Of Stock
This is the kind of battle we like to see! Three heavy tenors – Nelson, King, and Jimmy Forrest – come head to head in a relaxed set of tunes cut in that Prestige blowing session mode, but tweaked with a bit more tightness, in the style of some of the label's emerging soul jazz sides of the 60s. Nelson's gutsy tenor will shock you if you haven't heard him in this sort of less restrained setting – and Forrest's work from this time is always a treat. Titles include "Blues For MF", "Anacruses", "Perdido", and "In Passing". LP, Vinyl record album

The Mighty Mocambos sound even better here than usual – grooving out in a style that mixes their usual deep funk with a dose of old school South Bronx rhythms! The cut's a perfect blend of hip hop and funk – and features guest appearances by Charlie Funk, King Kamonzi, and Afrika Bambaataa – the last of whom is right at home, given that the cut is one that Bam would have spunk in a mix back in the day! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man! ... LP
Battle, 1962. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged Latin jazz version that pushed the tune into a whole new audience, and which was one of the first big groovers of its type in the pre-Latin Soul years! The group here is totally great – with players that include funky flautist Mauricio Smith, baritone genius Pat Patrick, and the always-great Bobby Capers – all key players who illustrate Santamaria's genius for picking horn players. Titles include "Watermelon Man", "Yeh Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It", "Sauvito", "Cut That Cane", and "Bayou Roots". LP, Vinyl record album

New Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man/Don't Bother Me No More ... 7-inch
Battle, Early 60s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A piece of history! Mongo's original recording of "Watermelon Man" – cut barely after Herbie Hancock wrote the tune, and done in a funky Latinized way that instantly made the cut as important for Mongo as it was for Herbie. In fact, we really have to say that we like this version better – as it's got some hard-hitting rhythms, edgey horns, and a few great shouted vocal bits! "Don't Bother Me" is a great number too – kind of a prototype for the Latin soul sound of the late 60s – short, hard, and very choppy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Blood Sweat & TearsComplete Columbia Singles ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $18.99 19.98
Wonderful work from Blood Sweat & Tears – and an ultra-cool set that's perfectly balanced between well-known material from singles, and some of the more obscure tracks that appeared on the flipside! The group's jazzy, joyous energy is in place right from the start – and the progression of singles really shows a wonderful sense of evolution – especially as the 70s come along, and the band starts breaking out of some of their earlier modes. In addition to a great selection of 32 tracks, the set also features excellent notes that offer up thoughtful reflections on some of the more surprising moments. Titles include "Heavy Blue", "Naked Man", "No Show", "Tell Me That I'm Wrong", "Rock Reprise", "Alone", "Velvet", "Roller Coaster", "The Battle", "Go Down Gamblin", "Valentine's Day", "Blues Part 2", "House In The Country", "Sometimes In Winter", and "Cowboys & Indians".

Arthur BlytheCalling Card ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1993. New Copy .... $13.99
A great little record from Arthur Blythe – mostly straight ahead, but pretty darn freewheeling too – thanks to a selection of long tracks that really let him open up on alto sax! The setting is a quartet – nicely put-together with John Hicks on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Bobby Battle on drums – a rhythm trio who do equally well on the album's spiritual tracks and its more soulful groovers. The performance was recorded live, but with a nice degree of intimacy, especially on Blythe's horn – and titles include "Hip Dripper", "Naima's Love Song", "As Of Yet", "Blue Blues", "Break Tune", and "Elaborations".

Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – Legendary Recordings Vol 2 ... LP
Route 66 (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- .... $11.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this set! The set does good job of digging through Roy's work from the late 40s and early 50s, pulling together 15 tracks that mix Wynonnie Harris-ish rockers (no surprise, as King often had Brown and Harris splitting "Battle Of The Blues" albums together), with mellower soulful tunes. Tracks include "Black Diamond", "Mighty Mighty Man", "Long About Midnight", "Miss Fanny Brown Returns", "Butcher Pete part 2", "Brown Angel", "Grandpa Stole My Baby", and the original version of "Good Rockin Tonight", which is a lot rawer than you'd expect!

Titles include "Wild Ones" feat Grip Grand & Phat Kat, "Play" feat Oh No & Roc C, "All A Dream" feat B Lloyd, "Better Days feat Oh No & Dudley Perkins, "Ohh!" feat Party Arty, "Wave Of The Future" feat Grip Grand, "Battle Physically 1998" feat Foreign Legion and more.

Jimmie DriftwoodJimmie Driftwood Sings Newly Discovered Early American Folk Songs/Wilderness Road (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Omni (Australia), 1958/1959. New Copy .... $16.99 19.98
Oddball folk and Americana from the great Jimmie Driftwood – with a pair of great late 50s LPs and contemporaneous material – nicely compiled by Omni! Jimmie's trademark was to put a clever, tongue-in-cheek spin on historically set songs – done most famously on "Battle Of New Orleans", but he's got a bunch of songs that are just as great! The material is culled largely from the cheekily-titled Jimmie Driftwood Sings New Discovered Early American Folk Songs (Jimmie wrote all of 'em) and Wilderness Road LPs, plus some similar stuff. Includes a very different, though ultimately just as fun "Battle Of New Orleans" than Johnny Horton's hit version, the great "Tennessee Stud" (which was hit for Eddy Arnold and others), plus "Unfortunate Man", "Fair Rosamond's Bower", "Soldier's Joy", "Country Boy", "I'm Too Young To Marry", "Razorback Steak", "First Covered Wagon", "Run Johnny Run", "Mooshatonio", "The Bear Flew Over The Ocean", "Rattlesnake Song", "He Had A Long Chain On" and many more. 31 tracks in all.

Grant GreenFinal Comedown - Original Soundtrack ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
An excellent lost funky soundtrack on Blue Note – their only one for years, and Grant Green's entry into the blacksploitation genre! The whole thing bristles with the kind of chunky, thumping percussive feel as the best funky soundtracks of the era – informed by the work of Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes, but with the deeper jazz feel that Green brings from his other Blue Note sides of the time! Some cuts are quite funky, particularly the opener, "Past, Present, and Future" with it's crisp trap, chicken scratch guitar and bongo driven beat. Others have more of a stripped-down dope instrumental feel – there's some sweet funky flute work on "Fathers Lament", and even a slight bossa groove creeps into the title track! The whole album's very nice, and it's very different than any of Grant Green's other work! Other titles include "Afro Party", Luana's Theme", "Slight Fear And Terror", and "Battle Scene".

Jazz Couriers (Ronnie Scott & Tubby Hayes)Jazz Couriers Live In Morcombe 1959 – Tippin' (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1959. New Copy .... $34.99
Primo work by one of the greatest Brit jazz groups of the 50s – the legendary Jazz Couriers, and their smoking frontline of Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott on tenor sax! The pair have a way of coming together that's simply beautiful – not the kind of "battle" you might have gotten from American tenorists a few years before – and instead, a way of collaborating on long-spun, beautifully-blown tracks that really expand under the two voices of the tenors – in ways that other hardbop groups might with just a sax and trumpet. Part of the group's success is their great rhythm section too – Terry Shannon on piano, Jeff Clyne on bass, and Billy Eyden on drums – a trio who really kick things into gear wonderfully on this previously-unissued live date! The material was recorded at a restaurant gig – nice and intimate, but with very good sound – so much so that the record is very much on a par with the group's famous studio sides of the time. Tubby Hayes also plays a bit of vibes on the record – and titles include "For All We Know", "Embers", "Tippin", and "Cherokee/The Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

A great, proper album from Germany's excellent funk combo The Mighty Mocambos – who've dropped many killer 45s as themselves and with pseudonyms, as well as backing London-based funky soul diva Gizelle Smith for a teriffic full length – and sounding as vital and exuberant as ever here! The Mighty Mocambos are dexterous musicians and adventurous funk spirits – showing love for classic hip hop funk in collaborations with Afrika Bambaataa and Zulu Nation legend Charlie Funk, aka Afrika Islam – plus singers Su Kramer and Carol Lacaze (who sings in French), on top of killer instrumentals. Includes "Calling The Shots", "Zulu Walk" and "Battle" with Afrika Bambaata, Charlie Funk & King Kamonzi, "The Sun Shines Tonight" feat Su Kramer, "Struggles And Triumph", "French Vanilla Skies", "Physique", "Peace Street", "The Next Message" and more.

Takeru Muraoka & Takao UematsuRide & Tie (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Express/Think (Japan), 1971. New Copy .... $34.99
Funky, fuzzy, and outta site – a really wonderful set of extended psychedelic jazz numbers from twin tenorists Takeru Muraoka and Takao Uematsu! The set's billed as a live tenor "battle" on the cover – but it's hardly the sort of record that you'd hear from American players in this mode – no bebop jams, and instead some great soul and funk-influenced lines on the horns, served up over rhythm from a trio that features electric piano, electric bass, and drums from the mighty Motohiko Hino! There's a nice degree of fuzz on the saxes at times (are they using some effects pedals?) – and the long tunes really open up with a wicked groove that feels like some lost US jazz funk album from the early 70s. Titles include "Happy Birth", "Listen Here", "Hot Sunday", and "CC Rider". CD

The group play live jazz, but with a fiercely rhythmic passion that really has things moving at a mighty pace – upbeat, soulful, and plenty spiritual – but also these tight rhythms at the bottom that make their music instantly infectious, and gives it a great place on a modern dancefloor as well! The package brings together tracks from the group's previous albums, plus bits from out of print singles too – and the whole thing bristles with a sense of spontaneous energy that few other groups can match. Titles include "Waltz For Goddess", "Sahara", "Aie", "Storm", "Fantastic Planet", "Sexual Hungry", "Movin", "Are You Ready", "My Foolish Heart", "Mature", "Suffocation", and "Summer Goddess".

All tracks here are instrumentals, and are mostly done here in a garagey take on the Latin polka mode – a sound that's familiar, to be sure, but which sounds especially nice here thanks to some rougher percussion and an edge to the instrumentation that you don't often find in other records of this type. Titles include the group's original "Peanuts", plus "The Circus", "Popcorn", "La Raspa", "Rancho Grande", "Colt 45", "The Indian", and "Battle Of Flowers". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank WessFlute Mastery Of Frank Wess (aka Flute Juice) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Progressive, 1981. New Copy .... $12.99 15.98
An all-flute album from Frank Wess – a great small combo date that really gets at the lyrical modes in Frank's style! Wess had been playing flute on record for over 20 years by the time of this early 80s date – but there's a really special feeling to the album that brings out some of Frank's more sensitive, personal qualities – a mode that's quite free from the Basie-tinged work of his youth, and awash with wonderful colors and tones that really show a great deal of development on his instrument. Wess would often balance a bit of tenor on most sessions alongside the flute – but here, it's almost as if his continued focus on flute allows things to be even more expressive than usual. The rest of the group features Tommy Flanagan on piano, Chuck Wayne on guitar, George Mraz on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Nada Mas", "Battle Royal", "Spring Is Here", "Riled Up", and "Lover Come Back To Me". CD features four bonus alternate takes, too! CD

AKA Dance Music/Still Music, Late 80s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $15.99 16.99
Bang the box – a classic battle cry from the glory days of Chicago house – summed up here perfectly with a stack of tracks from the short-lived AKA Music label! The package follows strongly in the mode of Still Music's Kill Yourself Dancing set – and like that one, it offers up a really great look at a tiny label from the Windy City club scene – an imprint who cut some key tracks that barely made it out of the midwest, but which really helped to shape the house-heavy rhythms that went onto inspire countless artists in years to come! AKA only issued records for two short years in the mid 80s – but they really helped push some of the leaner, cleaner Chicago house modes that were bursting into the limelight in the acid years – those cool keyboards and dark beats that still stand out as some of the best elements from the classic years. The notes do a great job of telling the story from the perspective of the clubs and the streets – and titles include "Rock It" by Matt Warren & Michaelangelo, "Bang The Box (bang the house mix)" by Matt Warren, "Take Me Higher (ultimate acid mix" by Nexus 6, "Lost In The World" by Michaelangelo, "The Music's Got Me (club mix)" by Team, "Pleasure Dome (house mix)" by Modern Mechanical Music, "Don't Bring Back Memories" by Matt Warren & Michaelangelo, and "Alternative House" by Michaelangelo.

VariousYou Better Believe It – Rare & Modern Soul Gems 1967-1978 ... CD
WEA (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used .... $8.99
This is the kind of soul music we live for – sweet, rare tracks that never made the charts, but which sound as great as any of the bigger hits from the time! The collection brings together 25 tracks recorded for Atlantic and Warner Brothers during the late 60s and 1970s – many of them done in the same studios, with the same producers and arrangers, as the bigger hits of the time – but with a fresher feel that's kept them in the underground for many years. A few of the numbers on the set are lesser-known tracks by bigger artists, and others are incredible contributions from acts who never got the chance to cut a full LP – stepping forth here with some wonderful smooth soul tunes that rank with our favorite work from the time! The whole thing's great, and titles include "Calling For Your Love" by The Enticers, "You'll Never Be Sorry" by Gerald Sims, "I've Got To Come In" by Jean Battle, "Paint Yourself In The Corner" by The Classic Sullivans, "Without A Doubt" by Major Lance, "Save Your Love For Me" by Vivian Reed, "One On One" by Prince Phillip Mitchell, "Free (I'm Coming Home)" by Cool Sounds, "I Love You" by Terry Collins, "Nice & Easy" by Barbara Lynn, "Let's Get Together" by The Aristocrats, "Fragile Handle With Care" by Sam Dees, and "May Not Be What You Want" by Bobby Sheen.

VariousZanzibara 7 – Sikinde Vs Ndekule – Mlimani Park Orchestra & International Orchestra Safari Sound ... CD
Buda (France), Mid 80s. New Copy .... $14.99
A Tanzanian battle of the bands – on this sweet little set that features two of the biggest dance orchestras of the 80s! The ensembles in Tanzania at the time were far more than just musical acts – as most were funded by larger organizations, and had either a political or economic agenda as well – one that sometimes came through in the subject of the music, and which definitely resonated with the popularity of the groups as well! The approach of both groups here – Mlimani Park Orchestra and International Orchestra Safari Sound – is a blend of older guitar rhythms, ala highlife, with some fuller horn passages and vocal choruses that often have some slight social undercurrent mixed with a more upfront lyrical groove. As always with both the Zanzibara and Ethiopiques series, the notes are excellent, in boht English and French – and really help situate the larger cultural context of the music. Tracks include "Mtoto Akihilia Wembe", "Neema", and "Chenga Ya Mwili" by Mlimani Park Orchestra – and "Sosy", "Majuto", "Chatu Mkali", and "Homa Imenizidia" by International Orchestra Safari Sound.

Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... CD
1973. New Copy .... Around June 25, 2014
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". CD

Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

Blow Arnette does, at that – a killer tenor groove that's augmented here by some additional work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The pair really let loose on some of the tunes here – blowing in that older "battle" mode at points, but also laying back at times too – hitting a soulful ballad tone that almost reminds us of the late nite album Davis cut for RCA with Paul Gonsalves. There's some great organ in the lineup – played by Strethen Davis, a player who didn't record that often – and bass is by George Duviver and drums are by Arthur Edgehill. Titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", "Go Power", "Dutch Kitchen Boogie", "Go Red Go", "The Eely One", and "The Fluke". LP, Vinyl record album

Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Given the "drum battle" style of the record, the tracks are long and very open – done in a studio mode that recalls some of the Krupa/Rich meetings at JATP, and like the JATP sides, featuring plenty of space for players to take longer solos. Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Flip Phillips, and Roy Eldridge get in some nice licks on the set – and other players include Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown. Titles include "Gene's Blues", "Bernie's Tune", "Buddy's Blues", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album

Funky Technician is mysteriously slept on in too many discussions of the best hip hop of the era, but it's still way up there if you ask us.

John Zorn really takes off here with some amazing sounds on the organ of St Paul's Chapel – an exploration of the large pipe organ variant of the instrument, really pushed to the limits in a way that recalls Zorn's early experiments on alto sax! Despite the "hermetic" in the title, which might make you think of some private proceedings, or stowaway sounds – the album's got this very spacious, room-widening sort of feel – as Zorn really reaches forth with new sonic possibilities and very dark tones – of the sort that hardly befit the usual uses of a chapel of that nature. There's lots of very deep, bass-heavy notes in the mix – and titles include "Ascent Into the Maelstrom", "Prayer", "In Gloria Dei", "Battle Of The Angels", and "Holy Spirit" – all improvised by Zorn.

Massive music from the Record Kicks label – 21 tracks that have never been issued on CD before, including some rare singles, b-sides, and even a few cuts exclusive to the collection! If you know the Record Kicks name, you know that the label's a key outlet for contemporary deep funk and mod soul grooves – sounds that are steeped in the best influences of the 60s and 70s, but played by the cream of the crop of the global underground – including great funky groups on both sides of the Atlantic! With all the cuts on the collection, the set's one hell of a bargain – especially when you figure that it's got these cuts you won't find anywhere else: "Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover" by The Hawk, "Waiting For Reforms" by Gizelle Smith, "Zebra 3" by The Link Quartet, "Scaramunga (Lack of Afro 7" edit)" by Ray Harris & The Fusion Experience, "With Time" by Katzuma, "Changes (funk edit)" by Milano Jazz Dance Combo, and "Irrompibles Hi Fi" by Crabs Corporation.

New Neil Ardley, Ian Carr, & Don RendellGreek Variations & Other Agean Exercises ... CD
Universal (UK), 1970. Used .... Out Of Stock
A gem of a record from the groundbreaking Landsdowne series of UK jazz recordings at the end of the 70s – an ambitious effort directed by composer Neil Adrley, cut very much in the mode of the best work by the Ian Carr/Don Rendell group of the time! As the title might imply, the tunes are all of Greek mythological inspiration – but not in a hokey sort of style, or one that has any overdone "battle of the gods" feel. Instead, there's a warm, intimate approach to the work – almost in the mode of the best sophisticated jazz soundtracks of the late 60s – with a real concern for color, shadings, and tone – ultimately in a style that has less to do with mythology than you might think, but which is pretty darn impressive nonetheless! Carr plays trumpet and flugelhorn, Rendell plays saxes and flutes – and other players include Jack Bruce on bass, Chris Spedding on guitar, and and Barbara Thompson on reeds. Titles include "The Greek Variations", "Farewell Penelope", "Persephone's Jive", "Veil Of Ino", and "Siren's Song". CD

Really wonderful work from the legendary Tony Williams – a set that has the drummer hitting a whole new sound at the start of the 90s – a groove that's rich and soulful, yet still every bit as sharp as before! The set's straight ahead, and graced with some very youthful energy by a new-generation lineup that includes Wallace Roney on trumpet, Bill Pierce on tenor and soprano sax, Mulgrew Miller on piano, and Robert Hurst on bass – all players who bristle with excitement from the very first notes, expressing a sense of confidence and vision of a new jazz generation that no longer has to battle between its inside and outside impulses. Williams' drumming is superb, and nicely understated at many points – and titles include "Native Heart", "City Of Lights", "Extreme Measures", "Liberty", and "Two Worlds". CD

The set begins with a relatively spacious feel – almost ECM at points – then builds to tighter jazz energy as the record moves on – with particularly strong contributions from Jukka Eskola on trumpet and flugelhorn – whose bold statements seem to really set fire to some of the tunes. The group's a sextet – also with tenor from Joonatan Rautio, guitar from Marzi Nyman, bass from Jori Huhtala, and drums from Jukkis Uotila – on titles that include "Battle", "Return", "No Doubts", "Hesitation", "Peace", "Freedom", and "Journey".

The tracks are all long, and played with the sort of feel you'd hear if you caught these guys live at some small southside club – and the solos also show the kind of inventiveness and imagination you'd catch in that sort of setting – backed by a swinging rhythm combo that features Hank Jones on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include a version of "Perdido" that's nearly 13 minutes long – plus "Stardust", "Sposin", "Salt & Pepper", and "Theme From Lord Of The Flies". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy .... $16.99
Two groovy late 70s albums from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Mancini's Angels has happy Hank surrounded by plenty of cleavage – a cover that's perfect for the album's title play on the hit Charlie's Angels show! Mancini does a great job with the theme to that one, and also adds in some cool keyboards you wouldn't have heard on the original – and the rest of the album is a mix of other mid 70s TV themes, plus some cool originals penned by Mancini himself, but with a very similar flavor – often quite funky, in a soundtrack sort of way. Titles include "Charlie's Angels", "Car Wash", "Silver Streak", "Inspector Clouseau Theme", "Gonna Fly Now", "What's Happening", "The Moneychangers", and "Evergreen". The Theme Scene features plenty of cool 70s soundtrack themes – titles pulled from both film and TV use, some with a feel that's every bit as funky as Henry Mancini's great work on the Cop Show album! Titles include "The Cheap Detective", "Star Trek", "Heaven Can Wait", "Children Of Sanchez", "Battlestar Galactica", "Once Is Not Enough", "Three's Company", "NBC News Theme", and "Fantasy Island".

Art PepperReturn Of Art Pepper – The Complete Art Pepper Aladdin Recordings Vol 1 ... CD
Jazz West/Blue Note, 1956. Used .... $8.99
Given that Pepper was on and off the LA scene a fair bit in the 50s – due to personal trouble and legal battles – this album's not so much "the return", as it is one of Pepper's many strong steps back into the studio, a place in which he demonstrated an uncanny ability to craft brilliant work, despite the turmoil going on around him. The set's as classic as you can get for Pepper – right down to the classic William Claxton photo on the cover (which has a chilling story that you'll find in Art's autobiography). Players include Jack Sheldon, Russ Freeman, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne – and titles include "Pepper Returns", "Funny Blues", "Angel Wings", "Walkin Out Blues", "Five More", "Minority", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

Don Pullen & Sam RiversCapricorn Rising ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Used .... $9.99
A richly dynamic set from pianist Don Pullen, and one of his farthest-out sessions from the mid 70s – especially considering he had just finished a tenure as Mingus' piano player not long before this set was recorded! The "outness" of the date is probably due in part to reedman Sam Rivers, who brings a great deal of energy to the set, and wrote half of the numbers the group performs (the other half are from Pullen) – and the players work here in a quartet that features bassist Alex Blake and drummer Bobby Battles. The set's got a lot of the freewheeling energy that Rivers was hitting in the 70s – and titles include "Capricorn Rising", "Fall Out", "Joycie Girl". and "Break Out". CD

Red RippersOver There. . .And Over Here ... LP
Paradise Of Bachelors, 1983. New Copy (reissue).... $13.99
A cool combat- themed country rock record by The Red Rippers – largely the work of songwriter and Vietnam veteran Lt. Edwin Bankston – and a pretty riveting obscurity from the early 80s private press vaults! The sounds range from breezy, Creedence-styled backdrops and 70s outlaw country inspired grooves, to more of a fuzzed out, slightly harder-edged feel – but it's the lyricism that really pushes Red Rippers into a different realm. It's full of war-wizened songs about forgotten soldiers, bloody jungle battles and other prideful and mournful tales from this veteran's point of view! The difference between the catchy, if quite raw tunefulness and the frank lyricism gives it a really dichotomous, intriguing feel! Includes "I Roll", "Soldier Of Fortune", "Firefight", "Who Remembers", "Vietnam Blues", "The Dark And Bloody Road", "She's Been Down", "Body Bag". LP, Vinyl record album

Nicely done reissue of this classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including "Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield" – both the source of more than a few samples over the years. With nice sweet keyboards by Willie Tee, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you'll be hard pressed to beat! LP, Vinyl record album

One of the weird Meters-related New Orleans parade bands from the 70s – similar to the group The Wild Magnolias, but with a sound that's more in a New Orleans mode than a 70s funk one.

New Maynard FergusonPrimal Scream/New Vintage/Carnival ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1976/1977/1978. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
A trio of heavy-hitters from hornman Maynard Ferguson – all served up in one sweet set! Primal Scream is one of the funkiest records ever from Ferguson – the climax of a great run of bigger group grooves in the 70s! The record's a tight batch of groovers, with production and keyboards by Bob James – and the whole thing's a mixture of big band funk and electronics that's simply out of this world! Side one kicks off with two massive numbers – the Arp-heavy "Cheshire Cat Walk", and the Kool & The Gang-ish "Primal Scream" – and both cuts are quite long, with loads of cool instrumental effects. Side two is a bit softer, but it does include a long keyboard groover called "Swamp". On New Vintage, Maynard really grooves it – playing with a group that's even larger than some of his early 70s funk sessions, in a style that's got traces of disco and R&B-styled fusion! The set was arranged, conducted, and produced by Jay Chataway – who's going for a nice smooth mode on most of the cuts, almost in the slick manner of some late 70s cop show soundtrack. Tracks are a bit longer than usual, with more room for the groove, and titles include the originals "Oasis" and "El Vuelvo", a surprisingly nice disco take on "Maria", and the cuts "Airegin" and "Star Wars". Carnival is a cool cooker from Maynard Ferguson – and a set that has all the upbeat tones you'd expect from the title, but lots of funky currents underneath! The set really sparkles right from the start – and has that sweet vibe that Maynard was really getting perfect on these late 70s records for Columbia – jazzy fusion that's tight, but never too uptight – with lots of room for sweet solos from the leader himself, plus Bill Hannon on moog, John Qdini on guitar, Eric Traub on tenor, and Mike Migliore on alto. Titles include a famous working of Earth Wind & Fier's "Fantasy" – plus "Battlestar Galactica", "MF Carnival", "Baker Street", "Birdland", "How Ya Doin Baby", and "Stella By Starlight". CD
