Carlos GarnettBlack Love ... LP
Muse, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A 70s soul jazz classic – one of those albums we go back to again and again over the years for inspiration! The album was one of the first from young reed player Carlos Garnett – and it's virtually a super-session for the time – with a sublime lineup that perfectly blends spiritual jazz with funk and soul touches! The vibe here is incredible – far deeper than even on any of Garnett's other albums of the time – at a level that sounds as beautiful on the mellow cuts as it does on the soaring, spiritual soul jazz anthems that have made the record a classic for years. The record features vocals by Dee Dee Bridgewater and Ayodelle Jenkins – and instrumentation from Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Mauricio Smith on flute, Reggie Lucas on guitar, Norman Connors on drums, Mtume on congas, and Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano – plus Carlos himself on tenor, alto, and soprano sax. Titles include the perennial favorites "Mother of the Future" and "Taurus Woman", two cuts which transformed the global jazz dance scene years back – plus the tracks "Ebonesque", "Black Love", and "Banks of the Nile".

New Carlos GarnettJourney To Enlightenment ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A stone 70s classic from reedman Carlos Garnett – and a set that's every bit as righteous as you'd guess from the cover and the title! Garnett really soars to the heavens here – blowing a mixture of different instruments in a setting that takes off from his classic Black Love album, but which is almost even headier overall! Garnett vocalizes on some of the tracks – often working alongside singer Ayodele Jenkins, in a mode that sets things up with these righteous lyrics – then lets the instrumental passages really take over, and express the message in an even deeper way. The core group is nice and tight – with keyboards from Hubert Eaves, guitar from Reggie Lucas, bass from Anthony Jackson and drums from Howard King – plus extra percussion from Charles Pulliam and Neil Clarke – both of whom really fill in the music with lots of complicated rhythmic elements. Titles include the stunning groover "Chana" – plus "Journey To Enlightenment", "Love Flower", "Caribbean Sun", and "Let Us Go To Higher Heights". CD

New Carlos GarnettLet This Melody Ring On ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Soaring soul from Carlos Garnett – one of the reedman's key 70s sides for the Muse Records label – work we'd rank right up there with the spiritual best of Gary Bartz or Norman Connors at the time! Like both of those contemporaries, Garnett's really reaching for something new in the post-Coltrane generation – mixing electric and acoustic instrumentation with compelling rhythmic changes – and often letting in a bit of vocals as well. Most of the music here is instrumental – with Garnett on tenor and baritone sax, plus the great Hubert Eaves on keyboards and Reggie Lucas on guitar – but some tracks also feature very nice vocals from Prema, a female singer who takes up the same sort of role you might find Dee Dee Bridgewater doing with Connors, or Jean Carn with husband Doug. The blend is wonderful, and the vocals really help give the musical message some weight when the come into the mix – and titles include "Panama Roots", "Senor Trane", "Samba Serenade", and "Ghetto Jungle".

Carlos GarnettLet This Melody Ring On ... LP
Muse, 1975. Near Mint- ... $58.99
One of Carlos Garnett's great soul jazz albums for the Muse label from the mid 70's. There's a very deep feel here, and the music is played by an ensemble that's fairly large, and which has a similar sound to the Norman Connors jazz LPs that were on Buddah and Cobblestone (which is no surprise, since Garnett played on those). The lineup includes Hubert Eaves, Reggie Lucas, and Olu Dara, and the tracks are long and spiritual. Includes "Senor Trane", "Samba Serenade", and "Ghetto Jungle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear, but is nice overall.)

Carlos GarnettCosmos Nucleus ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Around October 22, 2014
One of the excellent early albums cut for the Muse label by soul jazz sax player Carlos Garnett! This set's one of his most righteous – and features a larger than usual ensemble, with players that include Cecil McBee, Kenny Kirkland, Zane Massey, and Al Brown – playing in a strident vein that recalls other albums of this sort on the Stata East label. Titles include "Mystery Of Ages", which features vocals by Cheryl Alexander, plus "Wise Old Men", "Kafira" and "Bed-Stuy Blues". CD

Carlos GarnettNew Love ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Around October 22, 2014
One of the killers from the Muse Records years of Carlos Garnett – very hip spiritually-inflected jazz – easily some of the best work on the label at the time! Garnett plays tenor and soprano sax – and Terumasa Hino's on trumpet, Joe Bonner's on keyboards, and Alphonse Mouson plays drums with his usual heavy sound. Includes "The New Love", "Memories Of Coltrane", and "Dance of The Virgins". CD

Norman ConnorsDark Of Light (Buddah) ... LP
Buddah, 1973. Very Good ... $6.99
Early genius from drummer Norman Connors – a sensational bit of righteous soul jazz – right up there with the best work on Strata East and Black Jazz from the time! The sound here is full, soulful, and spiritual – as Connors heads up a large ensemble that includes luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Eddie Henderson, Gary Bartz, Carlos Garnett, Buster Williams, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – all working together in a formation that's free spirited, yet tightly unified – often at a level that's even stronger than their own recordings! The album mixes a few longer tracks with shorter numbers – in a mode that reminds us a lot of Garnett's classic Black Love album – and titles include "Song For Rosa", "Black Lightnin", "Dark Of Light", "Butterfly Dreams", and "Laughter".

Miles DavisMiles Davis In Concert ... CD
Columbia, 1972. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Massive double-length Miles from the early 70s – some of his most inventive long form work of the time, and some of his funkiest too! The album stretches out with almost an improvised jamming sort of quality – tunes that begin sparely, then have the musicians stepping in as the groove builds up – an odd amalgam of electric sounds on sitar, keyboards, and guitar – mixed with earthier percussion and some great trumpet and sax – working at a level that has the edge of the Japanese recordings, but a lot less noise overall. Players include Carlos Garnett on tenor and soprano sax, Reggie Lucas on guitar, Khalil Balakrishna on electric sitar, Cedric Lawson on keyboards, Al Foster on drums, Badal Roy on tabla, and Mtume on percussion. Titles include the "Foot Fooler" tracks "Rated X", "Honky Tonk", "Theme From Jack Johnson", and "Black Satin/The Theme" – and the "Slickaphonics" tracks "Ife" and "Right Off/The Theme". CD

Andrew HillLift Every Voice ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. Used ... $12.99
A rare and beautiful Andrew Hill session, and one of the classic Blue Note entries into the "jazz and voices" sound that the label pioneered with Donald Byrd and Eddie Gale. Hill leads a core jazz group that includes Woody Shaw on trumpet, Carlos Garnett on tenor, Richard Davis on bass, and Freddie Waits on drums – and the group is backed by a vocal ensemble with a very spiritual vibe – a chorus who soar out soulfully, and really augment the jazz instrumentation of the album! The sound is a lot more hip than the Donald Byrd & Voices albums, and the playing of the core jazz group is very very soulful – along the lines of Hill's Grass Roots album, which was also from the same period. The record's similar to the Max Roach/Billy Harper vocal work around the same time, and titles include "Ghetto Lights", "Hey Hey", "Two Lullabies", and "Love Chant". CD reissue features 6 unissued bonus tracks, including "Blue Spark", "Drew's Tune", "Mother Mercy", "Natural Spirit", and "Such It Is". CD

Solar – Source Of Live Arkestra RevelationFaith For My Mind ... CD
Solar/P-Vine (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $23.99
A beautiful, beautiful little record – as righteous and soulful as some of the best spiritual jazz classics of the 70s – and arguably even rarer, as it was only issued on a tiny label from Atlanta! Solar have a sound that uses 3 female lead vocalists in chorus formation – one that comes across with the righteousness of Roy Ayers' best use of such a style, but which is taken even further in a wave of soul jazz expression – in a mode that reminds us a lot of the work of Dee Dee Bridgewater or Jean Carn singing together on key early records by Norman Connors, Carlos Garnett, or Mtume! The vocals share equally with the instrumentation on the set – delivering a message that's rich and positive, but never cliched or hokey. Instrumentation includes flute, soprano sax, piano, and some great percussion – and playing is inside, but exploratory – definitely in a post-Coltrane vein. Titles include "Rejoice", "Vanity", "Living For The Most High", "Faith For My Mind", and "It's A New Day". Really great stuff – and right up there with the classics of spiritual soul jazz! CD

VariousAfrican Spirits – A Spiritual Jazz Journey Looking Back To Africa ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $16.99
Afro-centric jazz from the 70s through the 90s – a real spiritual journey in music, compiled from a host of hard to find records, most of which are long out of print! The music on the collection is from three different decades, but the set's got a wonderfully unified feel – thanks to a strong spiritual current that runs through all the tunes, and a linked heritage of performance that was shared by many of the players over the years. Tracks are from a very diverse set of sources – including many American and European indie labels of the 60s and 70s – and all tunes are long, soulful, and plenty darn righteous! Titles include "Song For Mozambique" by Archie Shepp, "Africa" by Sathima B Benjamin, "The Almoravid" by Joe Chambers, "Our Roots Began In Africa" by Pharoah Sanders, "Days Gone By" by Moe Koffman, "Children" by Nation/African Liberation Arts Ensemble, "Mrafu" by Nate Morgan, "Afro Blue" by J Life, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Adele Sebastian, and "Banks Of The Nile" by Carlos Garnett.

Freddie HubbardSoul Experiment (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Music On Vinyl, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 9, 2014 (delayed)
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 Butler, Carlos Garnett, and Kenny Barron to kick out some rhythms that are different than those heard on his earlier albums. Garnett, Hubbard, and Barron all contribute original titles to the album – including the tracks "Hang 'Em Up", "Soul Experiment", "Midnite Soul", "Lonely Soul" – and they do a great version of Walter Bishop's groover "Soul Turn Around".

Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic (Buddah pressing) ... LP
Buddah, 1972. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

New Norman ConnorsSlewfoot ... CD
Buddah/Unidisc (Canada), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really bold step forward for Norman Connors – a set that's still got all the spiritual jazz elements of his roots, but which also adds in some more soul and funk elements too! Jean Carn delivers some wonderful vocals on the record – at a level that's much more like her early Black Jazz recordings with Doug Carn, than her later Philly soul sides – and Connors heads up a killer instrumental group that features reeds from Hubert Laws, Carlos Garnett, and Gary Bartz – plus wicked keyboards from Reggie Lucas and percussion from Dom Um Romao too! The fusion players are all super-sharp – and really make the whole album crackle wonderfully throughout – on a mix of instrumental and vocal tracks that include "Mother Of The Future", "Slew Foot", "Dreams", "Chuka", "Back On The Street", and "Jump Street".

New VariousDeep Jazz Trip ... CD
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really letting its artists do their thing – and you'll heard that clearly on some of the best cuts here – numbers that offer up surprisingly vibrant sides of the artists included, usually with some righteous undertones. Titles include Eddie Jefferson's rendering of "Freedom Jazz Dance" (and a very crazy one at that), Charles Earland's excellent stormer "Murilley", Kenny Barron's "Swamp Demon", Walter Bishop Jr's "Soul Village", Joao Donato's "Night Tripper", "Old Man Moses" by Grant Green, and three nice ones by Carlos Garnett – "Good Shepherd", "Banks Of The Nile", and "Taurus Woman", from the classic Black Love LP.
