New Grant GreenAlive! ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice one! Grant Green's albums from this time are all great – but this is the amazing live album with the version of "Down Here On the Ground" that was sampled by Tribe Called Quest! There's lots of other nice moments on the record, too, like very hard funky covers of "Let The Music Take Your Mind" and "Sookie, Sookie". The group is excellent – and features Ronnie Foster and Earl Creque on organ, William Bivens on vibes, and Claude Bartee on tenor – all grooving hard in a modal funky mode that makes this album one of Grant Green's best from the time.

New Shirley NanetteNever Coming Back ... CD
Truth & Soul, Early 70s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a female soul album from the 70s – recorded in Texas by singer Shirley Nanette, but issued on a tiny label and never circulated at the time! The music here is all handled by guitarist Hanc Swarn – who'd worked with Earl Grant, and helped create that cool syncopated groove that made Grant a favorite with the steppers – a style that's expanded here into some funkier 70s modes, which really let's Nanette's vocals soar! Shirley's hardly the rootsy singer you'd expect from the Texas scene – as she's sometimes got this poise and class that almost rivals Nancy Wilson or Marlena Shaw, but can also hit these badass modes when the tunes get funkier too. The set's great – way more than just another rarity, and the kind of overlooked 70s gem we'd rank right up there with lost indie soul treasures by Mike James Kirkland or Penny Goodwin. Titles include "Give & Take", "Limelight", "Tropic Of Love", "I'm So Glad", "Heaven On Earth", "People Are Thinking", and "Yours Truly Love". CD

Joe CarrollMan With A Happy Sound ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good .... $9.99
Dizzy's longtime bebop partner cut this album of vocal tracks in the early 60s, when he was no longer recording with Diz. The record's a good batch of vocalese tracks with a strong bop edge – in the traditon of singers like Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks, and King Pleasure, and the band features a young Grant Green on guitar. The best track is the goofy "Land Of Ooh Bla Dee", but there's lots of other nice ones, like "Wha Wha Blues", "Have You Got A Penny Benny", and "New School Days". LP, Vinyl record album

The birth of modern jazz guitar – seminal sides recorded by Charlie Christian, working in small group format with Benny Goodman in the '40's. Christian's tone on the instrument is fantastic – and even though the style of the tracks is more in the swing era mode, there's a direct line between his playing and later work by Grant Green and other 60s jazz guitar giants. 16 tracks in all, including "Six Appeal", "Waiting For Benny", "Seven Come Eleven", "Airmail Special", "Breakfast Feud", and "Wholly Cats".

Lou DonaldsonMan With A Horn (previously unissued material) ... CD
Blue Note, 1961/1963. Used .... $9.99
Hard wailing! Poppa Lou's caught right at the height of his early Blue Note powers here – recorded in 2 different groups on this set of unreleased sessions from the early 60s! Both sets have Lou in a guitar/organ soul jazz setting – with backing by Grant Green on guitar, and either Jack McDuff or John Patton on organ. The McDuff set features the great Joe Dukes on drums, and the session sparkles like one of McDuff's best Prestige albums from the time. The other session has the classic Patton/Green lineup augmented by trumpeter Irwin Stokes, a lesser-known talent who really opens up the sound nicely. There's a total of 9 tracks in all – a number of them ballads, but done with a lively soulful tone that keeps the whole thing nice and fresh – even after sitting in the vaults for nearly 40 years! Titles include "Star Dust", "Hippty Hop", "Please", "Man With A Horn", and "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White". CD

David GrantDavid Grant (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chrysalis/Big Break (UK), 1983. Used .... $4.99
Sweetly grooving early 80s UK soul from David Grant – his first solo album after the breakup of Linx – and it's a nice one! There's a leaner pop soul sound at play here, one that would have sounded right at home on the US charts of the time – but it's never too poppy – and always with David's genuinely soulful voice out front. The songs are of pretty solid, with some uptempo numbers and some more ballad-y tunes – the latter of which are really nice! Includes "Rock The Midnight", "Love Will Find A Way", "Stop And Go", "Organize", "Watching You, Watching Me", Holding On", "In The Flow Of Love", "Wrap Yourself Around Me" and more. This Big Break CD edition has a healthy batch of bonus tracks and alternate versions – 9 in all: "Stop And Go (12" Master Mix)", "Love Will Find A Way (Single Version)", "Kiss Away The Blues", "Klik Trax", :Rick The Midnight (Single Version)" and more.

Grant GreenBlue Breakbeats ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. Used .... $5.99
You know, we can remember a time when Michael Cuscuna used to say that Grant Green's late sessions for Blue Note were just a bunch of throwaway funk records. Now, though, the label seems to be doing everything it can to get behind Green's late 60s/early 70s jazz output – and this compilation of rare breakbeat tracks is total proof of that! The set's got 6 funky guitar groovers, including Grant's version of James Brown's "Ain't It Funky Now", plus "The Final Comedown", "Ease Back", "Sookie Sookie", and "Cataloupe Woman". CD

Grant GreenBorn To Be Blue ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used .... $7.99
A rare one from Grant Green – recorded in 1962, but not issued until 1985. The set's one of Green's early classics recorded with pianist Sonny Clark – a deeply soulful player who really had the right feel for Green's more lyrical soul jazz numbers. The rest of the group includes Ike Quebec on tenor, plus Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. The tracks are laidback and introspective – but still have enough of a groove to fit with Green's best work at the time. Titles include "Count Every Star", "If I Should Lose You", "Born To Be Blue", and "My One And Only Love". CD

Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. New Copy (reissue).... $11.99
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean overall! There's a fair bit of great players in the lineup – including Jon Faddis on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Joe Farrell on tenor – and the horns soar out nicely to set the scene over some tightly stepping backings – all served up with plenty of room for Grant to solo spaciously on guitar! The title track – "The Main Attraction" – is nearly 20 minutes long – and the other two tracks, "Creature" and "Future Feature", both approach the 10 minute mark themselves! LP, Vinyl record album

Dodo GreeneMy Hour Of Need ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good .... $18.99
One of the few vocal albums on Blue Note's short lived 89000 series – and one of the only few ever cut by the obscure singer Dodo Greene! Green's got this raspy voice that's just great – somewhat fragile, but not in a wispy way – kind of honest and human, and somewhere in the Billie Holiday tradition, yet very much her own bag too! The backings are quite unique – handled by an excellent group led by tenorist Ike Quebec, who's also working with Grant Green on guitar and Sir Charles Thompson on organ. The band is nice, and Quebec gets in a few solos, but the real highlight is Greene, whose beautifully fragile voice gives haunting renditions of standards like "Let There Be Love", "My Hour Of Need", "Trouble In Mind", and "I Won't Cry Anymore". A fairly mournful album, and with a nice moody late night feel. LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie HancockMy Point Of View (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used .... $6.99
Classic Herbie from the early years, and a great mix of soul jazz and modernism! The record include a nice groovy "hit", Herbie's "Blind Man, Blind Man" – an obvious follow-up to "Watermelon Man", but still a standout track with a lot of imagination, and a fierce soul jazz hook that just won't quit! The rest of the record, while still groovy, also shows much more signs of Herbie's far-reaching conception – especially shared with players like Tony Williams, Grachan Moncur, Chuck Israels, and Grant Green – all of whom work with Herbie, Donald Byrd, and Hank Mobley – in a larger than usual group that makes for a really great sound! Titles include "A Tribute To Someone", "King Cobra", and "The Pleasure Is Mine". The CD also includes a bonus alternate take of "Blind Man, Blind Man"! CD

Bobby HutchersonNatural Illusions (Applause pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Sealed .... $7.99
Vibes and orchestrations – a combination that makes for one of the coolest Bobby Hutcherson albums of the 70s – a really magical set that expands the sound of Bobby's work in ways we wouldn't have expected! The style is similar to that used with Grant Green and Lou Donaldson at the time on Blue Note – a style that's clearly trying for the more sophisticated sounds of CTI, and which beautifully balances the modes of presentation – so that there's still plenty of soulful moments and slyly funky bits alongside the strings and woodwinds in the orchestrations – proof that a record like this can be really brilliant if scored properly! Some moments get a bit modern and dark – almost in a William S Fischer kind of way – and titles include the great track "Rain Every Thursday", which begins with an excellent break – plus "The Folks Who Live On The Hill", "Sophisticated Ladies", "When You're Near", "Shirl", and "Lush Life".

Elton JohnGoodbye Yellow Brick Road (40th Anniversary – 2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Mercury, 1973. New Copy 2CD .... $27.99 29.98
The crowning achievement of a young Elton John – and the record that took an already-great run of earlier records, and pushed it even further with a new depth of songwriting and imagination! The double-length set isn't exactly a concept album – at least not one with a unified narrative – but it works beautifully as a set of little pictures of the world seen through the eyes of Elton and Bernie Taupin – both at the height of their powers, and able to balance catchy commercial tunes with some grittier undercurrents. The set's filled with classics – and titles include "Candle In The Wind", "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding", "Bennie & The Jets", "Social Disease", "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting", "Harmony", "Jamaica Jerk-Off", and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Features a bonus CD – with 9 tracks recorded live at Hammersmith Odeon in December of 1973 – plus Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Revisited, with versions of the album's tunes by Zac Brown Band, Fall Out Boy, John Grant, The Band Perry, Ed Sheeran, Miguel, and others.

A nice little collection of earlier singles that Rudy and crew cut for Calla Records during the mid 70s – a mix of funky disco tunes, sweeter soul numbers, and a few classic sounding tracks handled with a really professional approach. The vocals are excellent on most numbers – sung with a raspy edge that keeps things real, and which gives an added dimension to the arrangements, fleshing them out for a fuller sound overall. Titles include "Take Nothing For Granted", "Come Back Home", "World Citizen", "My Imagination", "All I Can Say", and "This Song Is For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Nineteenth WholeSmilin' ... CD
Eastbound/Westbound (UK), 1972. New Copy .... $11.99
One of the sweetest little jazz funk albums of the early 70s – and a masterful blend of vibes, guitar, and organ from this legendary Indianapolis combo! The group are probably best known for their backing work behind Grant Green on some of his funky Blue Note sides – or for vibes player Billy Wooten, who leads the group, and has had a huge influence on his own these days – but even if you've never heard of them, the record will grab you right away – as it's got a sinister funky groove that few other groups could hope to match! There's a really unique blend of vibes, guitar, and organ going on here – and although the record does have a bit of vocals, the main focus here is on the instrumentation – which jams together in ways that are unlike most other funk combos of the time, including a good number of the group's contemporaries at Westbound! Sweet original tracks include "Monkey Hips 'n Rice", "Looking Through The Windows", and "Dark Clouds Risin", plus a stellar cover of "Slippin' Into Darkness". CD

Sharifa Rhodes PittsHarlem Is Nowhere – A Journey To The Mecca Of Black America (paperback) ... Book
Granta (UK), 2011. New Copy .... $5.99
A beautiful portrait of Harlem – told at a very personal level, but in a way that's also very conscious of history as well – a process of understanding that definitely lives up to the title of the book! Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts isn't a Harlem native, but presents a wonderful picture of her moving into the neighborhood, getting to know it, and digging deeper into its history via research and photographs. The neighborhood has been in great transition during the early part of the 21st Century – and Rhodes-Pitts reaches back to its roots, and continues to find physical traces of its changes through her ambulatory interaction with the community. Writing these words, we realize we might make the process sound a bit dry – but on paper, it's wonderfully visual and very illuminating – the story of someone who really loves Harlem, and finds a way to love it even more – and make us do so at the same time. The book is 296 pages, softcover, with black and white photographs. Book

We've loved this band from day one – and earlier than that even, if you want to count each member's time in preceding groups – so we're not about to start taking them for granted. It's tried-and-true Sea & Cake on one level here – breezy melodies, warm vocals and a laidback charm – plus their ever unique mix of live instrumentation and electronics. That said, the songs stand out more strongly on The Runner than on some of their recent work. They're as vital as ever! Includes "On And On", "Harps", "A Mere", "The Invitations", "Skyscraper", "Harbor Bridges", "New Patterns", "Neighbors And Township", "Pacific" and "The Runner". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent early live set that has Stanley playing with a raw tone that you'd hardly recognize if you only know his later, sweeter records. The group's a lively soul jazz quintet, with Grant Green on guitar, playing the kind of hard single note solos that made his early recordings so great, and Horace Parlan on piano, slammin' the keys with a very tight groove and very nimble fingers. Includes a long moody reading of "Yesterdays", plus the hard bop original "Stanley's Time". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAfrica Boogaloo – The Latinization Of West Africa ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $22.99
A long-overdue collection of work – one that really gets at the unusual appearance of Latin rhythms on the African scene of the postwar years! Latin sounds from Africa are nothing new, but they're one of those things that's always taken for granted, too – kind of assumed in most discussions of the rhythms from the 60s onward, but never explained as fully as might be needed! Given the already-great grooves going down on the continent for generations, it's surprising that African musicians might pick up styles from Cuba and the Caribbean – yet due to the vagaries of global cultural circulation, that's exactly what happened – and the music has never been the same ever since. This really well-done package offers up a range of tracks from the 50s through the 70s – showing some of the earliest African extrapolations of Latin styles – clearly enforcing the "Afro" in Afro-Cuban rhythms – then moving onto some later grooves that offer up some funkier styles too. The work's a bridge between the ethnographic sets on Honest Jons, and some of the tighter grooves you might find on a Soul Jazz collection – a wonderful blend of music, packaged beautifully too. Titles include "A Moins Que Namikosa" by Orchestra OK Jazz, "Rampa Rampa" by Orchestre Yaya Mas, "Quiero Wapacha" by Charles Lembe, "Ven Y Ven Y Ven" by Orchestre OK Jazz, "Vamos A Bailar" by Rio Band, "Guantanamo" by Laba Sosseh, "On Verra Ca" by Orchestre Baobab, "Mi Guajeo" by Orchestre N'Guewel, "N'Niyo" by Amara Toure, "Il N'Est Jamais Trop Tard" by Pierre Tchana & Orchestre Poly Rhythmo, "Africa Boogaloo" by Le Grande Kalle with Don Gonzalo & Manu Dibango, and "Adigbedoto" by Gnonnas Pedro.

VariousAfro Cuban Blue – Blue Note Percussion Compilation ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $24.99
Heavy percussion on Blue Note Records – but a set that moves way past the familiar modes of the genre! The styles here are a mix of early hardbop, electric funk, and later fusion – all of which feature lots of raw, live percussion added to the usual rhythmic elements of bass and drums – to really help create some complexity in the grooves! Previous Blue Note sets of this nature have only focused on Latin-tinged jazz from the acoustic years, but this one does a great job of showing the strength of the styles well through Blue Note in the electric 70s – as you'll hear on the cool range of cuts that include "Amanda" by John Patton, "Montara" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Traveling To Get To Doc" by Grant Green, "Tom's Thumb" by Reuben Wilson, "Big Farm Boy Goes To A Latin City" by Ronnie Foster, "Cookoo & Fungi" by Art Taylor, "Sweet Dreams" by Chico Hamilton, "Dracula" by Grant Green, "Suitcase Full Of Dreams" by Willie Bobo, "Funky Business" by Gene Harris, "RK Bossa" by Dom Minasi, and "Herman's Mambo" by Lou Donaldson. 17 tracks, and almost 80 minutes of music!

Not really sounds from the tropics – but instead a great reworking of bossa and Latin modes – all done by the best 60s artists at Blue Note Records! The rhythms are what really make the set swing – as they have this hard edge that retains all the initial soulful inspiration of the American players – while also picking up some more complicated elements that really open up the groove – and pave the way for great solo work on trumpet, tenor, piano, and Hammond! Additionally, the set's got the pedigree of being one of the early Blue Note comps hand-picked for the hip London scene – and tracks include "Congalere" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "You're Everything" by Carmen McRae, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, and "Latona" by John Patton.

Not the Fuzztones themselves, but a host of sounds from the generation before the formation of that great group – seminal tracks from the underground scene of the mid 60s, including lots of early numbers that helped pave the way for later psych experiments! The style here is relatively garagey overall – rock that's matured a few years and really learned how to sneer, and often use studio elements in the best way to bring an even nastier sound out of the guitar, bass, and drums. A few tracks are almost proto-punk – although cut years before the term was ever used – and titles include "Me Tarzan You Jane" by Shadows Of Knight, "Get Naked" by Sky Saxon, "Ward 81" by The Pretty Things, "All The King's Horses" by Electric Prunes, "Highway 69" by Shy Guys, "Look For The Question Mark" by The Wallflowers, and "Nine Months Later" by The Vagrants.

Warner (Australia), 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $34.99
A contemporary collection, but one that really lives up to the spirits of the legendary Nuggets collection – as the artists here each pick a favorite track from that garage and pysch powerhouse, then deliver their own very faithful versions! The set's got an extra special twist – given that it was released at the same time as the wonderful Australian version of Nuggets, which includes many lost Aussie gems from the 60s – and the artists here are all from the contemporary Australian underground, but every bit as awash in fuzz, freak, and echo as their American counterparts from the 60s! Both production styles and instrumentation are very faithful to the original 60s styles – and titles include "Don't Look Back" by Palms, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" by Velociraptor, "Dirty Water" by Pearls, "Psychotic Reaction" by The Murlocs, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Baptism Of Uzi, "My World Fell Down" by Montero, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by The Laurels, "Farmer John" by Bloods, "Hey Joe" by Pond, and "A Public Execution" by Tiny Migrants. 2LP set features more tracks than the CD – and is limited and numbered too!

Grant Green's first-ever session as a leader – recorded by Blue Note in 1960, and not issued until now! The set features Green's guitar playing in a piano quartet, with rhythm by Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – about as fine a backing trio as Green could hope to find. We're not sure why Blue Note didn't issue this material at the time – perhaps because they were trying to break Green as R&B-inflected soul jazz player, and this set had more of a straight jazz quality (like his Sunday Morning album) – but whatever the case, it's all here now, along with 2 other tracks from a 1961 session with Sonny Clark on piano. Titles include "Seepin", "Sonnymoon For Two", "Just Friends", "Woody N You", and an early recording of "Grant's First Stand". CD

The sound of the set's as evocative as the title – an idle moment of space between the notes, explored by Green's tight single-note work on guitar – and wonderfully supported by a lineup that includes Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, and Duke Pearson. Hutcherson and Pearson are always a treat together – bringing out the best exotic side of each other, and crafting a set of spiritually soulful grooves that are really great! The album's got 4 long tracks – exploratory and open, in the best manner of Green's mid 60s work – and titles include "Nomad", "Idle Moments", and "Jean De Fleur". LP, Vinyl record album

Grant GreenMain Attraction ... CD
1976. New Copy .... Around May 19, 2014
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean overall! There's a fair bit of great players in the lineup – including Jon Faddis on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Joe Farrell on tenor – and the horns soar out nicely to set the scene over some tightly stepping backings – all served up with plenty of room for Grant to solo spaciously on guitar! The title track – "The Main Attraction" – is nearly 20 minutes long – and the other two tracks, "Creature" and "Future Feature", both approach the 10 minute mark themselves! CD

Jan JohanssonJazz Pa Svenska – Swedish Folk Songs ... LP
Early 60s. New Copy (reissue).... Around February 1, 2014 (delayed)
A real classic from Swedish pianist Jan Johansson – and a key effort to link the modernism of his nation's postwar years with their rich centuries of cultural traditions! The tunes here are mostly from folk sources, but they're recast by Johansson in a moody modern jazz mode – often handled very sparely, with just bass accompaniment from Georg Riedel – who seems wonderfully suited to the project at hand! The melodies are incredibly evocative – and Johansson's playing is really set free amidst these familiar frameworks – never too outside, but deeply exploratory, and with a surprising depth of feeling. Titles include "Visa Fran Utanmyra", "Emigrantvisa", "Gammal Brollopsmarsch", "Brudmarsch Efter Larshoga Jonke", "Leksands Skanklat", and "Visa Fran Jarna". CD features 4 bonus alternate takes – plus, the CD also features bonus CD-rom material – including all the session recordings that were originally done! LP, Vinyl record album

The record features Stan in the company of Grant Green, Tommy Flanagan, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor – and the set's got a warm mellow tone, with wonderful playing by Green and Turrentine.

Beautiful early-to-mid 20th century music made in America by the immigrants of the era, as well as more old time folk & blues oriented material – amazing music put together by Mississippi Records with an almost ghostlike quality on some tracks, but raucous and lively on others! Music we may have never heard in our lives if not for Mississippi. Titles include "Blow Wind Blow" by Wilmouth Houdini, "I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore" by Two Gospel Keys, "Palida Luna" by Lydia, "Quill Blues" by Big Boy Cleveland, "Palida Luna" by Lydia Mendoza and many more.

New George BraithLaughing Soul ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1966. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost bit of soul jazz from the 60s! The great reedman George Braith makes a rare non-Blue Note appearance here – working in a tightly grooving mode that's even groovier than his better-known work for that label! The group here features Grant Green on guitar and John Patton on organ – in a mode that's somewhat similar to Patton's Blue John album from the same period – a set that also featured these three players in the lead! Braith himself has a wonderfully quirky approach here – one that's a fair bit like Roland Kirk, with lots of odd twists and turns on the reeds – which include not just tenor sax, but also soprano and C Melody saxophone as well – sometimes played together, ala Kirk! Braith's tone is amazing, and the set of tracks is nearly all original – with titles that include "Hot Sauce", "Chop Sticks", "Chunky Cheeks", "Crenshaw West", and "Coolodge". A truly fantastic Prestige album – but one that's always sadly overlooked! CD

New Rusty BryantRusty Bryant Returns ... LP
Prestige, 1969. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real smoker of a session – Rusty Bryant's first comeback album of the jazz funk years, done in a mode that virtually set the tone for other Prestige sessions of the time! Rusty's working here on alto sax, in a mode that's clearly inspired by the Lou Donaldson sessions of the time on Blue Note – but done with a freer, looser, more rolling sort of vibe. Organist Sonny Phillips really makes the set great with some fluid work on the Hammond that matches Bryant's groove – and guitarist Grant Green's also in the group, setting up some great single note lines that punctuate the tunes nicely. A key factor is also bassist Bob Bushnell, who plays Fender bass on the record (an element missing from the Donaldson sound), and gives the record a key bit of motion at the bottom! Tracks include the groovy "Zoo Boogaloo", plus "Streak O' Lean", "Night Flight", "The Cat", and "Ready Rusty". LP, Vinyl record album

Cobblestone, 1977. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This one was recorded in 1968, issued briefly on a small label, and then finally pressed for the larger masses during the early 70s by the Cobblestone label. Despite this checkered history, though, the album's one of Green's best small group recordings – and features a classic jazz organ trio sound, and features Green's guitar with the organ of John Patton and the drumming of Ben Dixon. We can't imagine a better combo, especially as the three of them were one of the best teams ever to put out soul jazz sessions for Blue Note! The record includes the version of "High Heel Sneakers" that has shown up on a few comps over the years, plus the tracks "Work Song", "Iron City", and "Old Man Moses". The feel is very similar to some of Green's Blue Notes, with a very classic sound. LP, Vinyl record album

New Grant GreenShades Of Green ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

New Bobby HutchersonKicker (previously unreleased material) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest lost sessions ever! Legendary vibist Bobby Hutcherson recorded this set of tracks in his early days with Blue Note – but the set's never come out until now, and its release is cause for rejoicing! The material shows Hutcherson playing in a straight-ahead format, tinged with some of the modernist new thing elements of other recordings from the time, but mostly filled with a soulfulness not always heard on his Blue Note albums at the time. The group includes Duke Pearson on piano, whose lovely lyrical approach works perfectly with Hutcherson's vibes. Joe Henderson plays some great hard-edged tenor, cutting nicely through all the tracks – and Grant Green sits in on half of the material, playing some nice spiralling modal lines on guitar. Many of these titles have been recorded in other versions on later Blue Note albums – but they're all in fantastic versions here, including "Bedouin", "The Kicker", "Step Lightly", and "Mirrors". CD

The set takes the older funky guitar styles of the 60s soul jazz generation, and fuses it with a 90s nujazz approach – to come up with some tight groovers that have a surprisingly classic feel, yet which also sparkle with the fresher sounds of the time – some of the hip rhythms that were bubbling around in London during the Talking Loud and early Acid Jazz years. Titles include a great remake of "So What", the jazz/hip hop classic "Get To Grips", and the cuts "Cool & Funky", "Summer Smile", "Show Me", "Nite Spice", and "After Hours". CD

A killer – one of the best from Prestige during the runaway classic years of the early 70s! Melvin Sparks is a genius guitarist, with a talent as rich as that of Grant Green, who's probably his most immediate precursor. He'd played in the groups of Lou Donaldson and Jack McDuff during the late 60s, but by the time of this release, he was breaking out on his own as one of the hottest funk guitarists in jazz. The group's an excellent one – and features Idris Muhammad on funky drums, Virgil Jones on trumpet, and the great Leon Spencer on organ. The tracks are nice and long, especially the original "The Stinker", and the cool cover of "Spill the Wine". Also includes a great funky cover of Sly Stone's "Thank You Falletinme Be Mice Elf".

Warner (Australia), 2012. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A contemporary collection, but one that really lives up to the spirits of the legendary Nuggets collection – as the artists here each pick a favorite track from that garage and pysch powerhouse, then deliver their own very faithful versions! The set's got an extra special twist – given that it was released at the same time as the wonderful Australian version of Nuggets, which includes many lost Aussie gems from the 60s – and the artists here are all from the contemporary Australian underground, but every bit as awash in fuzz, freak, and echo as their American counterparts from the 60s! Both production styles and instrumentation are very faithful to the original 60s styles – and titles include "Don't Look Back" by Palms, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" by Velociraptor, "Dirty Water" by Pearls, "Psychotic Reaction" by The Murlocs, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Baptism Of Uzi, "My World Fell Down" by Montero, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by The Laurels, "Farmer John" by Bloods, "Hey Joe" by Pond, and "A Public Execution" by Tiny Migrants.

A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

Damn great work from guitarist Grant Green – one of his killer sessions with pianist Sonny Clark – recorded in the early 60s, but unissued until nearly 20 years later! The groove here is a bit different than some of Green's early dates with organ – a bit more soulful hardbop at times, with some great work on rhythm from Sam Jones on bass and Art Blakey on drums – two great players who complete the group beautifully. The setting is calm and spare, but very fluid, and all players play with a brilliant edge – Blakey is excellent, and hearing him on this one makes you want more of his work as a sideman (which was to diminish greatly after this recording). Tracks include takes on "Airegin", "I Concentrate on You", ""The Song Is You", "The Things We Did Last Summer" and a stellar version of "It Ain't Necessarily So". LP, Vinyl record album

Wounded Bird/Columbia, 1981. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A freewheeling, boozy solo set from the Stones' Ronnie Wood – and a star-studded one at that! 1234 is a charmingly ragged batch – with one tune co-written by R&B great Bobby Womack of all people, and a few that Ronnie co-wrote with unsung country rock genius Jim Ford, of Harlan County (should-be) fame. Ronnie's vocals sound surprisingly close to the way Bob Dylan's did in the late 70s and early 80s, albeit with a lot more of a buzzed swagger, which certainly suits the material! Perhaps the greatest perk of being a Stone is that you're granted access to the most amazing musicians – and this record features appearances by Bobby Womack, Charlie Watts, Anita Pointer, Waddy Wachtel, Bobby Keys and others. Includes "1234", "Fountain Of Love", "Outlaws", the cool honky tonk/blues instrumental "Redeyes" (dedicated to Mick Jagger. . .wonder what Mick was up to to cause the redness), "Wind Howlin' Through", "Princeless", "She Was Out There", "Down To The Ground" and "She Never Told Me".

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.
