Dave BrubeckDave Brubeck Octet ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
A full LP that combines early work by Dave Brubeck – pulled together from a few 10" LPs, and packaged in a nice cartoony cover. The record features the work of his octet – a group that gives a rare opportunity to hear Brubeck in a large group setting, and one that also features work by Cal Tjader on drums (!), plus Dick Collins and Paul Desmond on their usual instruments. Titles include "The Prisoner's Song", "Prelude", "IPCA", "Fugue On Bop Themes", "Schizophrenic Scherzo", "Playland At The Beach", and "Serenade Suite". CD

FunkadelicLet's Take It To The Stage (remastered with bonus track) ... CD
Westbound, 1975. Used ... $7.99
A tasty little album from Funkadelic – one that has Bootsy Collins joining the group, and really hitting the unique approach that would become the definitive P-Funk groove! And although tracks are shorter and even more focused, there's still a fair bit of guitar in the set – keeping the trademark Funkadelic sound in place, to set them aside from from the growing horn-heavy Parliament groove. Yet in both groups' work at the time, there's a growing emphasis on the rhythms at the bottom – a pulling up of the basslines in a way that was no doubt influenced by Bootsy's presence, and which would have a key influence on the sound of funk for years to come! Includes the massively infectious funk track "Get Off Your Ass and Jam", plus "Let's Take It To The Stage", "Be My Beach", "Baby I Owe You Something Good", "The Song Is Familiar", "No Head No Backstage Pass", "Atmosphere", "Stuffs & Things", and "Better By the Pound". CD features the bonus track "Baby I Owe You Something Good" – performed by US Music with Funkadelic! CD

New Rick JamesStreet Songs ... CD
Motown, 1981. Used ... $5.99
One of the all-time great Rick James albums – a return to funkier sounds for Rick that worked both artistically and commercially – and actually got over far better than his more blatant attempts at crossover material on other records! The mix here is perfect – a true summation of all that made Motown great at the time, and the special sort of energy that made Rick one of the freshest mainstream talents at the end of the 70s! The record put a lot of money in Barry Gordy's pockets, and for good reason too – given that the set includes the classic hit "Super Freak" – plus "Give It To Me Baby", "Ghetto Life", "Make Love To Me", "Below The Funk (Pass The J)", and "Fire & Desire" – all done in that compressed pop-funky style that James kind of took from Bootsy Collins and manage to successfully soup up for the masses! CD also features the bonus tracks "Give It To Me Baby (12" mix)" and "Super Freak (12" mix)". CD

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsDap-Dippin' With Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings ... CD
Daptone, 2002. Used ... $7.99
A stunner – the first full album by deep funk singer Sharon Jones, and an instant soul masterpiece! The album's right up there with the best work by James Brown divas like Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, and Lyn Collins – and overall, we might dare say that the album's even better than any of theirs, as it's an all-solid, all-funky effort all the way through! Backings are by the Dap-Kings – grooving hard in a sock-soul funky 45 mode that never lets up – and we can't think of a better album of funky female soul to recommend this year, or maybe even this decade. Just when you thought you'd be saying "they don't make soul music like this anymore" – here it comes to whomp you on the head! Titles include "Got A Thing On My Mind", "Make It Good To Me", "Casella Walk", "Pick It Up, Lay It In The Cut", "Give Me A Chance", "The Dap Dip", "What Have You Done For Me Lately", and "Got To Be The Way It Is".

Charlie ShaversComplete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan ... CD
Bethlehem/Avenue, Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
An unusual slice of work by trumpeter Charlie Shavers – proof of his vitality and the range of his powers during the 50s! The first 4 tracks feature Shavers in a sextet with Hank D'Amico, Bennie Morton, Ken Kersey, Aaron Bell and Panama Francis, and some narration by Al Jazzbo Collins! Collins provides some hipster speak that sets that stage for a variety of older tunes featuring Shavers on solo. The set list includes "Dark Eyes", "Dawn On The Desert", "Story Of The Jazz Trumpet", and "Moten Swing" – all done in pretty cool, swinging versions. Side 2 of the LP features Shavers leading another sextet in front of the John Kirby Orchestra with vocalist Maxine Sullivan alongside too, and all of which include Buster Bailey on clarinet, Russell Procope on alto, and Billy Kyle on piano – on tunes that include "Windy", "Rose Room", "If I Had A Ribbon Row", "Flow Gently Sweet Rhythm", and "Molly Malone".

Snoop DoggR & G (Rhythm & Gangsta) – The Masterpiece ... CD
Geffen/Doggy Style, 2004. Used ... $4.99
Snoop brings Doggy Style over to Geffen – also the latest home of the Neptunes' Star Trak, Snoop's partners for this better-than-usual LP! Snoop has the seniority these days to pick-and-choose whomever the hell he wants to produce and contribute to his records regardless of the present hotness of those contributors – bringing in Alchemist, Lil Jon, 50 Cent, Hi Tek, and others. The best tracks seem to be the Neptune productions, with that glittery minimalist electro sound and the digital handclaps that meld perfectly with Snoop's hazy delivery. The single "Drop It Like It's Hot" is another shiny gem on par with "From The Chuuuch. . ." and "Beautiful" – we can't stop spinnin' it here, anyway! Snoop's on a real high (artistically, that is) lately, and mainstream street hop is all the better for it! Other tracks include "Bang Out", "Can I Get A Flicc Witchu" feat Bootsy Collins, "The Bidness", "Let's Get Blown", "Step Yo Game Up" with Lil Jon, "Oh No" with 50 Cent, "Pass It Pass It" and more. CD

New VariousMastercuts Breaks – Essential Full-Length Original 12" Mastercuts ... CD
Mastercuts (UK), 1970s. Used ... $9.99
All the Ultimate Breaks & Beats you'd ever want – collected in one set! The album's got a total of 12 tracks in all – and nearly all of them are the kinds of classic break tracks that have formed the blueprint for hip hop over the past 15 years. Sure, you've seen some of them on other compilations, but the whole package is excellent – sort of a distillation of the sounds of 70s funk that have gone onto influence a generation! Titles include "The Grunt" by The JBs, "I Know You Got Soul" by Bobby Byrd, "Flashlight" by Parliament, "It's A New Day" by The Skullsnaps, "Impeach The President" by The Honeydrippers, "Think" by Lyn Collins, "NT" by Kool & The Gang, "Sing A Simple Song" by Sly Stone, "Funky Drummer" by James Brown, and "I Need Help" by Bobby Byrd.

New Rufus HarleyTribute To Courage ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant work by one of the most unusual jazz talents of the 60s! Rufus Harley's best known for his use of bagpipes in jazz music – a re-cooption of the instrument from Scottish styles, taking it back to its roots in northern Africa. A number of Harley's other albums from the time are a bit gimmicky – but this later set is a soul jazz masterpiece, infused with rich Coltrane-like modes of expression, as Harley plays both soprano sax and bagpipes over some long modal original compositions! The group is a great one – with Oliver Collins playing some fantastic spiraling lines on piano, and great bass and drum work by James Glenn & Billy Abner. Titles include "Ali", "X", "About Trane", "Tribute To Courage", and a great version of "Sunny"! CD

New James BrownBlack Caesar ... CD
Polygram, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental cuts, plus Lyn Collins, who sings a sock version of "Mama Feelgood" that's worth the price of the record alone! Includes the classic "Down & Out in New York City", plus "Blind Man Can See It", "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Dirty Harri", and "Chase". CD

New VariousMasterpiece Vol 9 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky club galore – a smoking set of early 80s numbers that really runs the gamut! The groove here isn't exactly underground, but it's nicely away from the charts, too – in a hip territory that's heavy on beats, keys, and basslines – mixing in some electro modes with funkier undercurrents, and usually topped with some soulful vocals too! Titles on this volume include "Sucker For Love (ext US mix)" by B Biz R, "Main Thing" by Shot, "Starting Again" by Second Image, "Sure Shot" by Tracy Weber, "Don't Change Your Ways" by Krystol, "Come & Get It (US version)" by Bailey & Bridges, "My Love's The Real Thing (Frankie Rodriguez real re-edit)" by Bobby Thurston, "Music (Frankie Rodriguez music express mix)" by D-Train, "Straight Ahead" by Nick Straker Band, "Where You Gonna Be Tonight" by Willie Collins, and "I Got Your Body" by Carol Douglas.
