Ernie Watts QuartetPlanet Love ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $0.99
A beautiful record that often gets overlooked because of Watts' later, weaker playing. A young soulful Ernie fronts a quartet of unknown but tight LA soul jazz players from the late 60's, and the album's a mix of pop jazz stuff with tracks that have much more of a soul jazz feel that we're used to hearing on Ernie's albums. Tracks include "Boo", "Planet Love", "Black Is Beautiful", and "Going Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, masking tape and some splitting on the seams, some aging, a few ink stamps, some stains, and a sticker on the front.)

Stanley ClarkeTime Exposure ... LP
Epic, 1984. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A nice funky electric groover from Stanley Clarke's mid 80s R&B years! Time Exposure has a lot of period electro funk in the mix, particularly Clarke's impeccable bass lines, which are heavy throughout! A brilliant mix of 80s fusiony future funk with jazz precision – definitely a funky highlight from this period in Clarke's career – and those bass lines are just unreal! A pretty eclectic roster of guest musicians play on this one, including tenor sax player Ernie Watts, fellow bassist Louis Johnson of Brothers Johnson, singer Howard Hewitt and rock guitar guru Jeff Beck. Titles include "Play The Bass 10", "Are You Ready (For The Future)", "Heaven Sent You", "Time Exposure", "Speedball", "Future Shock", "Spacerunner", "I Know Just How You Feel" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light stain on one corner.)

Bobby HutchersonLinger Lane ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good ... $7.99
A beautiful later Blue Note album from vibist Bobby Hutcherson – a set recorded after his famous association with Harold Land, but with a groove that's wonderfully soulful in a whole different way! Bobby plays marimbas instead of vibes this time around, and he's working with his own arrangements for a slightly larger group – one that has some sweet fusion overtones, and these wonderful mellow funk inflections – so that even the mellow cuts have this warmly glowing, ultra-soulful sound that's mighty nice – a bit like some of the work from Gene Harris around the same time. Other players include Jerry Peters on Fender Rhodes, who also helped out with the arrangements – plus Harvey Mason on drums and Ernie Watts on reeds – and a few tracks feature sweet backing vocals from The Waters. The highlight here is a nice moody extended version of "People Make The World Go Round", but all cuts are great, and titles include "Silver Rondo", "Manzanita", "NTU", and his dark cover of "Theme From MASH". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 70s pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear, a cut corner, clear tape on part of all seams, some marker on the back, and a few stains.)

Blue MitchellCollision In Black ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent pairing of funk talents – the tight trumpet of Blue Mitchell, and the super-soulful backings of Monk Higgins! Higgins has a groove that was schooled in the funky 45 underground of Chicago – and here, he really finds a great way to pick things up for Mitchell – relieving him of the duties of being a leader on his own, and coming up with tight jams that then let Blue step out as the main solo talent! Other players include Paul Humphrey on drums, Anthony Ortega on tenor, Jim Horn and Ernie Watts on flute, and Monk Higgins himself on organ, tenor, and piano! The whole thing's a great jam, and includes many tasty cuts, like "Deeper In Black", "Jo Ju Ja", "Blue On Black", "Monkin Around", and "Keep Your Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Collision In Black ... LP 19.99

Gene PageHot City ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint- ... $8.99
An excellent album of Barry White-styled instrumentals – put together by Barry's right hand man Gene Page, and produced by Barry himself! The record's one of the best that Gene Page ever cut – apart from his seminal blacksploitation soundtracks – and it's very much in the mode of White's Love Unlimited Orchestra albums from the same time, although perhaps with less of a string section – and more of an emphasis on funky drums at the bottom. Players are an all-star cast of LA studio groovers that includes David T Walker and Ray Parker on guitar, Ernie Watts and Wilton Felder on saxes, and Clarence McDonald on keyboards – and tracks are mostly originals by Page and White. Titles include "Jungle Eyes", "She's My Main Squeeze", "I Am Living In A World Of Gloom", "Satin Soul", and "To The Bone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

Buddy RichBig Swing Face ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Although Buddy's always been a bit laughable, he was always trying to keep his bag moving, and his band of the late 60s included some pretty darn nice players. The group on this session includes Ernie Watts and Bobby Shew, and the band wails hard and fast in a live setting with lots of tight little numbers. Tracks include "Wack Wack", "Norwegian Wood", "The Beat Goes On", and "Mexicali Nose". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Big Swing Face ... CD 1.99

Gerald WilsonLomelin ... LP
Discovery, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Late great work from the mighty Gerald Wilson – done with a slightly different groove than his 60s sides! The group features Harold Land Jr on electric piano – plus Bobby Bryant on trumpet, Oscar Brashear on trumpet and flugelhorn, Garnett Brown and Thurman Green on trombones, Harold Land and Ernie Watts on tenor and flute, and Mike Wofford on Mason Hamlin BB piano! Tracks are long, and titles include "Lomelin", "Ay Ee En", "Blues For Zubin", "You Know", and "Triple Chase". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dianne ReevesWelcome To My Love ... LP
PAJ, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early work from Dianne – handled with a lot more laidback production than on later albums, a sweetly soulful approach with some nice California touches! Billy Childs gives Dianne some great backing on piano and keyboards – and other players include Harvey Mason, Billy Carroll, and Ernie Watts. Tracks include the nice groover "Better Days" – plus "Welcome To My Love", "Mi Vida", "Sire Serenade", "Hesitations", "Perfect Love", and "Passageway". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and some light wear.)

New David T WalkerPress On ... LP
Ode, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warmly chromatic and nicely tripped out guitar work from David T Walker – laid out over some great larger arrangements from the legendary Jerry Peters! The style here is a great blend of studio jazz and soul – a completely new recasting of the role of the guitarist in the soul instrumental field, and one that's clearly inspired by the styles of CTI and Kudu, yet a bit more straight ahead overall. Walker's guitar is amazing throughout – laidback, yet always filled with a strong sense of "voice" that really comes through – and other players on the set include longtime studio associates, like Harvey Mason on drums, Ernie Watts on alto, Tom Scott on tenor, and Oscar Brasher on trumpet. Titles are mostly covers, but done in really great versions – and tunes include "If You Let Me", "Superstition", "Work To Do", "Brother, Brother", "Press On", "Didn't I Blow Your Mind", and "If That's The Way You Feel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)
