John FaheyJohn Fahey Visits Washington DC ... LP
Takoma, 1979. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A lesser known late 70s album from John Fahey – released on Takoma several years after Fahey sold the label to Chrysalis! The record includes a few Fahey compositions, and it also finds him working some pretty wonderful magic on Doc Watson and Bill Monroe material for the opening medley of Watson's "Silver Bell" and Monroe's "Cheyenne" – joined by Richard Ruskin on the former. Other tracks include "Ann Arbor/Death By Reputation", "The Discovery Of Syliva Scott", "Guitar Lamnento", "Melody McBad" and "The Grand Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz At The PhilharmonicIn Tokyo – Live At The Nichigenki Theatre 1953 ... CD
Pablo, 1953. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
A Pablo Records release – but featuring material that was originally destined for Verve Records in the 50s – a rare performance in Japan by the Jazz At The Philharmonic! The double-length set is overflowing with goodness, all recorded in the open-ended, warm-hearted style that Norman Granz brought to these classic performances! The album starts with an extended set by the JATP All-Stars – a group that features Roy Eldridge and Charlie Shavers on trumpets, Willie Smith and Benny Carter on alto, Bill Harris on trombone, and Ben Webster and Flip Philips on tenors – with rhythm from the combo of Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and JC Heard on drums. JATP titles include a "Ballad Medley", "Tokyo Blues", and "Cotton Tail". The set then features six more tracks by the Oscar Peterson Trio – including "Sushi Blues" and "Up" – and another four by the Gene Krupa Trio – including "Don't Be That Way", and "Cocktails For Two". The set then ends with a long set by Ella Fitzgerald with a quartet – on titles that include "Smooth Sailin", "How High The Moon", "Body & Soul", "Lady Be Good", and "My Funny Valentine" – plus a reading of "Perdido" with the whole JATP group.

VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.

New 5th DimensionPortrait ... LP
Buddah, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful record by The 5th Dimension – hip, sophisticated, and one that shows that they had a depth that went beyond simple soul harmonies! The proof of this is the group's killer track "One Less Bell To Answer", one of the frankest songs about adult love and breakup to ever crack the charts in the 60s – but there's plenty of other gems, including "Puppet Man", "Feelin Alright", "A Love Like Ours", "Save The Country", "Dimension 5ive", and the extended medley of "The Declaration/Change Is Gonna Come/People Got To Be Free". Arrangements are by producer Bones Howe, with the team of Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman – both of whom helped to shape the group's sound nicely in the post-Jimmy Webb years. LP, Vinyl record album

New Gene KrupaDriving Gene Krupa ... LP
Clef, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great Verve work from Gene – showing again a real talent for picking excellent players on his 50s small group sides! The ensemble here is a sextet – with Charlie Shavers on trumpet, Bill Harris on trombone, and Eddie Davis on tenor – plus rhythm by Teddy Wilson, Ray Brown, and Gene. A big part of the album's taken up by "The Ballad Medley", which features a player each soloing on standards – and other tracks include "Bloozy Woozy", "Windy", "Meddle My Minor", "Who's Rhythm", and "Second Helping Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing – nice and clean overall. Cover is nice, save for one small spot of marker in a corner.)

New Grant GreenShades Of Green ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good+ ... $22.99
A stellar album from Grant Green – very different than most of his other work for Blue Note, and a sly electric groover recorded with vibist Billy Wooten! The sound here is a bit more spacious than some of Grant's earlier albums, yet no less funky – thanks to a hip undercurrent of soul in the drums, and arrangements from Wade Marcus that keep things fluid throughout. Wooten's vibes are wonderful, a ringing counterpoint to Green's great lines on guitar – and even the more familiar tunes on the record turn out to be really unique readings here – thanks to the arrangements and overall conception. Mellow moments are dripping with plenty of soul, and the funky ones are pretty great too – and titles include a killer medley of James Brown's "I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing" and "Cold Sweat", a heavy version of his instrumental groover "In The Middle", and a great original called "California Green" – plus "Never My Love", "Sunrise Sunset", "Got To Be There", and "If You Really Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(UA pressing, with some pen on the label. Cover has edge wear and a name in pen on both sides.)

Johnny HodgesCreamy ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $39.99
Swing session with small group backing by Billy Strayhorn, Jimmy Woode, Sonny Greer, and Clark Terry – and which features Johnny's warm tones soloing nicely on comfortable standards. All of side one is a "ballad medley", with a very Creamy sound, and titles that include "But Not For Me", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Whispering", and "Tenderly". The flipside's got a bit more kick, and titles that include "Honey Bunny", "Passion", and "No Use Kicking". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow label Norgran pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has wide strips of duct tape on the seams, discoloration due to age, some wear, and pen on the back.)

CK Mann & His Carousel 7Funky Highlife ... LP
Qua Msa/Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
A non-stop funky party from CK Mann – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The album's got an unusual approach – in that the first side is presented as a single long track – billed as a "medley" number, but wrapped together in a way that still seems to preserve each individual moment of music within – a shifting array of styles that runs from highlife to funkier African rhythms! The cut is a massive fourteen minute number that's worth the price of admission alone – then rolls into some great shorter tracks on the second half – arranged by Ebo Taylor with the same hip criss-crossing of modes you'd find in his own 70s work. Titles include "Asafo Beesuon Medley", "Beebi A Odo Wo", "Yebeyi Wo Aye", and "Do Me Ma Mondo Wo Bi". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy RowlesJam Face ... CD
Choice (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jimmy Rowles has always been one hell of a musician, but he really seemed to hit a special stretch in his work during the 70s – a time when he was able to balance his traditional roots with plenty of fresh ideas – all expressed perfectly here in a trio with Buster Williams on bass and Billy Hart on drums! Both players provide an excellent counterpoint to Jimmy's richly soulful lines on piano – and allow him to still hit that cool sense of tone that we love in other records, while also giving the album some more modern rhythmic impulses that really seem to inspire Rowles too. Jimmy sings a bit at times – in that raspy voice that's not unlike the modes used by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg – and titles include "Blood Count", "While We're Young", "Irene", "My Mother's Love", and a nice long medley of standards.
