Ernie Watts QuartetPlanet Love ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $1.99
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.)

New Richard Groove Holmes & Ernie WattsCome Together ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of LA's best soul jazz talents team up in this set of funky tracks with a good LA studio groove to them. Freddy Robinson's on guitar, Wilton Felder's on bass, and King Errison's on congas – and all tracks are played by a small little combo. The best titles are originals by Watts – "Beer Can Alley" and "Boo" – and other tracks include "Wedding Bell Blues" and "Evil Ways". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear and a small cut corner.)

New 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 24.99

Dianne ReevesWelcome To My Love ... LP
PAJ, Early 80s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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.)

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

New KarmaCelebration ... LP
A&M/Horizon, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Despite the fact that most of these guys participated in some of the best funky fusion records coming out of the 70s west coast scene, this record's not what it should be – especially when you consider it's got players like George Bohannon, Ernie Watts, and Oscar Brashear. Still, it's not a bad bit of pop funky fusion – in sort of a later Crusaders mode – and it does feature some vocals by Syreeta and Denices Williams. Titles include "Suite Syreeta", "Kwanzaa", "Well", and "Funk De Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp & some light wear.)

New Gerald WilsonLomelin ... LP
Discovery, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 David ByrneMusic For The Knee Plays ... LP
ECM, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of several solo David Byrne albums from around the time the Talking Heads were getting ready to call it quits. This set differs a bit more than the Catherine Wheel even though both are music for theater/dance/performance pieces, with this suite of music being inspired by New Orleans brass bands, though you might not otherwise make that connection if it weren't explicitly laid out in the notes. The group is a large one, primarily made up of horns, but with Paul Humphrey and Bobbye Hall on drums and percussion, and feature some real ringers in the brass section, including Don Myrick, Ernie Watts, Pete Christlieb and Fred Wesley. Tracks include "Tree", "In The Upper Room", "Sound Of Business", "Admiral Perry", "I Bid You Goodnight", "In The Future", "Where The Sun Never Goes Down", "Theadora Is Dozing", "Social Studies", "Winter", and "The Jungle Book". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has staining along the bottom two inches & a spot of sticker residue.)

New Charles KynardCharles Kynard ... LP
Mainstream, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great album from organist Charles Kynard – one of his best that wasn't issued on Prestige! This is one of the funky jazz LPs on Mainstream that really hits a nice groove, with Bob Shad's crisp production dovetailing with Kynard's jazz funk sensibilities just right – not too slick or uptight at all! Kynard's backed here by a nice little LA combo that includes Carol Kaye on bass, King Errison on conga, and Ernie Watts on tenor – all players who relax nicely into the groove, and let Charles hit a sweetly gliding sort of line on the Hammond. The overall groove is similar to his earlier Prestige soul jazz classic Reelin' With The Feelin – but with shorter, tighter tracks, and more emphasis on the funk side, which is what we love to hear! Titles include "She", "Nightwood", "Grits", "El Toro Poo Poo", "Greeze", and "Greens". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a small name in pen.)
