New James Blood UlmerAmerica – Do You Remember The Love? ... LP
Blue Note, 1987. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Ulmer on Blue Note – who'd a thunk it? And oddly, although the album's on one of the most jazz-based labels at the time, it's also one of Ulmer's most rock-oriented – with strong lead vocals on nearly every track, and an overall style that's as bluesy as it is experimentally jazzy. Ulmer's clearly emerged as a star in his own right (or own mind) by the time of the album – and there's less of the shared group dynamic of the harmelodic years, and more of a style that's set up to support his lead presence. Players include Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Nicky Skopelitis – and titles include "I Belong In The USA", "Lady Blue", "After Dark", "Black Sheep", and "Show Me Your Love America".

James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99 24.99
A classic bit of Black Rock from James Blood Ulmer – and a record that was issued by Rough Trade in the UK, giving it a surprising influence on the post-punk scene of the time! In a way, Ulmer's groove here has a lot of punky-funk in the mix – thanks to some heavy electric bass from Amin Ali, and tight drumming from Ronald Shannon Jackson. The horns sneak in and out of the rhythms next to Ulmer's sometimes heavy guitar work – and players include David Murray, Oliver Lake, and Olu Dara – all grooving in a frenetic sound that's a key link between the New York downtown and UK post-punk scenes! Titles include "See Through", "TV Blues", "Time Out", "Jazz Is The Teacher (Funk Is the Preacher)", "Interview", "Pressure", and "Layout". CD

James Blood UlmerIn & Out ... CD
In & Out (Germany), 2009. Used ... $8.99
Heavy guitar from James Blood Ulmer – still steeped in those deep, rich tones he seemed to pick up from the Hendrix generation many years past – presented here in an array of jazzy modes! Ulmer's got some of the freeness you'd know from his harmelodic years – that stretched-out way of soaring that really made him a key guitar inventor at the start of the 80s – and a few other cuts here are a bit more straightforward, although still with plenty of offbeat touches. Other players include Mark Peterson on bass and Aubrey Dayle on drums – and titles include "A Thing For Joe", "High Yellow", "Baby Talk", "Maya", "Eviction", "Fat Mama", "No Man's Land", and "Backbiter".

New James Blood UlmerTales Of Captain Black ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album of the New York downtown scene – and one of the most groundbreaking guitar jazz albums of the 70s! James Blood Ulmer plays here with members of Ornette Coleman's group of the time – including Ornette himself, Denardo Coleman, and Jaamaladeen Tacuma. The style is very similar to that of Ornette's excellent Body Meta album – a mode that has the rhythms all turned inside themselves, using guitar as strongly as drums – in a style that's one of the most perfect visions of Coleman's harmelodic mode. The overall vibe is very Ornette-ish, but still also features plenty of great offbeat work by Ulmer on guitar – and titles include "Moons Shines", "Morning Bride", "Nothing To Say", and "Revealing".

John PattonMemphis To New York Spirit ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. Used ... $19.99
A great lost album by John Patton – recorded in 1970, but not ever issued until 1995! The record was most likely held back because it's one of the funky organist's most far-reaching – a stunning batch of modal tracks that moves way past the usual organ sound, and much more into Larry Young-ish territory. A young James Blood Ulmer is on guitar, and the great (and underrecorded) Marvin Cabell plays flute, soprano, and tenor sax. Really great stuff – and most likely material that will disappear again for another 25 years! Titles include "The Mandingo", "Bloodyun", "Memphis", "Steno", and a cover of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints". CD

New Larry YoungLawrence Of Newark ... LP
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible stuff from the jazz underground of Newark! This is one of the rarest albums ever recorded by jazz organist Larry Young – cut for the tiny Perception label during the early 70s, and featuring some of the cream of the New Jersey jazz underground. The album's got playing that bridges a number of Young's different styles – from his straighter soul jazz work at Blue Note, to his harder jamming with Santana and John McLaughlin, to his more fusion oriented albums for Arista. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, but there's also a large ensemble of excellent players, and lots of other percussion and cool instrumentation that really gives the album an "out there" sound! Titles include "Sunshine Fly Away", "Saudia", "Hello Your Quietness", and "Khalid Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

New Ornette ColemanBody Meta ... LP
Artists House, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy duty stuff, and one of Ornette's best LPs from the 70's. Recorded in 1976, this is a perfect demonstration of the harmelodic style, with the whole group jaunting along in tight choppy bits. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, and the sound is very dark and deep. Tracks include "Voice Poetry", "Macho Woman", and "Home Grown". LP, Vinyl record album

New Frank WrightBlues For Albert Ayler ... CD
ESP, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost gem from the legendary Frank Wright – a previously-unissued live date from 1974, and one of his most hard-burning albums of the 70s! The group here is a quartet – driven by heavy drum work from Rashied Ali, who hosted the performance – plus incredible guitar from James Blood Ulmer, who's really coming into his own here – and bass from Benny Wilson. There's a freewheeling energy to the record that definitely shows the bolder sounds that Wright had picked up on the French scene – yet the whole thing also has that grounded sense of soul that we love in older ESP recordings too – a quality that seems to help Ulmer's guitar find all the right notes! Six long tracks, all part of an longer live performance. CD

New Gil EvansWhere Flamingos Fly ... LP
Artists House, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent set that was recorded in 1971, but not issued until 10 years later – by the small Artists House label, home to groundbreaking work by Ornette Coleman and James Blood Ulmer. Evans' record earns the same tag here – as it's a moody mix of electric and acoustic playing, featuring a group that includes Joe Beck, Billy Harper, Johnny Coles, Lenny White, Airto, and Hannibal Peterson. Titles include "Zee Zee", "Where Flamingos Fly", "Nana", and "El Matador". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert.)
