Joe Lee WilsonLivin High Off Nickels & Dimes ... LP
Oblivion, 1974. Very Good+ ... $11.99
At this point in his career, Joe probably was living off of nickels and dimes – despite the fact that he was one of the 70s hipper jazz singers, in a soulful spiritual camp that included vocalists like Andy Bey and Rufus Thomas. This album's a nice mellow effort, taken from a live show at Columbia Radio in 1972. The record features a nice moody reading of Harold Ousley's "Aquarian Melody", plus Horace Silver's "Strollin", Gloria Coleman's "You Make Me Want To Dance", and the groovy "Jazz Ain't Nothin But Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has an index label on the spine.)

Joe Lee WilsonSecrets From The Sun ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of the hippest albums ever from singer Joe Lee Wilson – a righteous vocalist with a style we'd rank right up there with Leon Thomas or Andy Bey in the 70s! The album's got an easygoing vibe that's a nice change from some of Joe's other records – a quality that's never too forced, and which has Wilson sliding into the tunes wonderfully without any sort of gimmicks or tricks. His voice often has a nice crackle, which further underscores his instrument-inspired approach – and also makes the lyrics sound that much more wonderful too. The set was produced by Noah Howard, possibly in Paris – and it features a quartet with Bobby Few on piano, Steve Sax on saxes and flute, Jack Gregg on bass, and Al Levitt on drums. Includes the lovely originals "Dedicated To My Father", "Come & See", and "Secrets From The Sun" – plus a great take on Billy Gault's "Mode For Trane". LP, Vinyl record album
(Side 1 has short mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has a cut corner, ring & edge wear, and some pen on the back.)

New Archie SheppAttica Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $12.99
A classic of spiritual, soulful jazz – and one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums! The set was recorded in New York after a few free and festive years in Paris, and it's an amazing about-face that has Archie stepping into a world of righteous, full-on, political, and funky themes – the likes of which are far more outspoken than any of his previous recordings. The group on the set is quite a large one – hip New York underground players, a small string ensemble, and even a few singers – like soul diva Joshie Armstead and vocalist Joe Lee Wilson. Overall, the sound's somewhere in the same place as the Art Ensemble of Chicago's amazing Les Stances A Sophie – in that the record comes from a free jazz tradition, but moves into a more rhythmic focus in order to communicate its message. The added vocals and recitations are wonderful – very moving, and much less hippy-dippy than on other Shepp records of the time – and the whole thing holds together with a unique sound and substance that's made it a treasure that holds up again and again. A true gem, and one we'll never part with! Tracks include "Quiet Dawn", "Goodbye Sweet Pops", "Steam (parts 1 & 2)", "Attica Blues", "Blues For Brother George Jackson", and "Ballad For A Child".

VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 4 – Light My Fire ... LP
Motor (Germany), 1995. New Copy ... $28.99
The turning point volume in the Mojo Club series – and the volume in which the groove really began to open up into the fantastic mix of styles that's made the series famous! The collection features 14 great tracks that shouldn't sound great together, but they do – a really amazing array of different music from different scenes – put together with a strong sense of panache, and running for much longer than any American compilations of this nature (if there's any that could ever match up!) Titles include "Zazueira" by Elis Regina, "Jimmy Jean" by Ellen McIlwaine, "Pretty Brown Skin" by Edwin Birdsong, "Hold Out Your Hand" by Karin Krog, "Use It Or Lose It" by Gotham, "Try To Relax" by Ballinjack, "Return Of The Prodigal Son" by Joe Lee Wilson, "Balanca Pema" by Ronald Mesquita, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Jorge Ben, "Dyambo" by Hugh Masekela, and "Easin In" by Edwin Starr.

VariousSharp Shades & Finger Snaps ... CD
Blue Note (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
A great introduction to the amazing hardbop work recorded by Blue Note in the late 50s and 1960s – served up as a massive 2CD set filled with some of the label's most cooking classics! The sound here is always tight, right, and to the point – a key illustration of the care and focus that Blue Note brought to the studio when recording jazz work of this nature, which always helped them get the best work out of all players on the session. The 19 track collection is beautifully packaged with full notes and album cover images for each track – and a set of music that goes way past the hits, to feature real gems that include "The African Queen" by Horace Silver, "After The Rain" by Duke Pearson, "No Room For Squares" by Hank Mobley, "Mosaic" by Art Blakey, "Nite Flite" by Lee Morgan, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, "Easterly Winds" by Jack Wilson, "A Little Busy" by Art Blakey, "The Black Disciple" by Donald Byrd, "Una Muy Bonita" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Hootnan" by Jackie McLean, and "Hobo Joe" by Johhny Coles.

VariousStudio One Ska Fever – More Ska Sounds From Sir Coxone's Downbeat ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Forget everything you know about ska music from recent years – no Mighty Mighty cliches, no retro-styled clunkers, no two-toned sounds at all – just the real deal, the roots of the style, served up here in classic recordings that go right to the source! These are the cuts that started it all – and which still sound way better to our ears than any of the countless imitations that have been crafted over the years – played with a freshness and a sharp edge that recent recordings can never hope to touch! The music here is the roots of reggae crafted in the soil of Kingston – recorded by the legendary Studio One Records, with all the soulful undercurrents you'd find in the rocksteady generation as well. It's been a few years since Soul Jazz have served up a set of Jamaican grooves this tight – but it's been well worth the wait, given the track selection and always-stellar level of presentation from the label. Titles include "Live Good" by The Ethiopians, "Mr Talkative" by The Wailers, "There's A Reward" by Joe Higgs & Roy Wilson, "Ska La Parisienne" by The Skatalites, "Don't Try To Reach Me" by The Gaylads, "Gumma" by Lee Perry, "Freedom Sounds" by Soul Brothers, "You Won't See Me" by The Clarendonians, and "Old Rocking Chair" by Jakie Opel.

Archie SheppCry Of My People ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
One of the most righteous albums ever from Archie Shepp – a beautiful late Impulse set of grooves, and a record that matches the genius of Attica Blues! Shepp's working with a losse collective of players that includes Charles Greenlee, Harold Mabern, and Beaver Harris – plus vocalists like Joe Lee Wilson and Peggie Blue – all to craft a set of tunes that are as righteous and political as they are spiritual and soulful! The great Cal Massey handled arrangements on a number of the tracks on the set – bringing together the players with a wonderfully unified feel, pushing away the easy spirituality of earlier records to forge a massively powerful sound – and Shepp matches his great efforts by blowing some of his most soulful lines on record! Titles include the wonderful "African Drum Suite (parts 1 & 2)", plus "A Prayer", "Cry Of My People", "The Lady", "All God's Children Got A Home In The Universe", and "Rest Enough". CD

New Archie SheppAttica Blues Big Band Live At The Palais Des Glaces ... CD
Blue Marge (France), 1979. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Attica Blues, and beyond – a great late 70s performance that has Archie Shepp turning the clock back towards that famous album – but also making some very new grooves with a richly expanded lineup! The double-length set was recorded in Paris, in front of a very lively crowd – and it's honestly one of Shepp's most dynamic records from the time – definitely inspired by all the freedom he'd had in the French scene for the previous decade – yet also brought together with a great sense of focus too. The lineup is excellent – with vocals from Joe Lee Wilson and Irene Datcher – trumpets from Malachi Thompson, Charles McGhee, and Roy Burrowes; trombones from Charles Greenlee, Dick Griffin, and Steve Turre; reeds from Marion Brown, James Ware, and Marvin Blackman; plus piano from Art Matthews, some added strings, great percussion, and piano, tenor, and soprano sax from Shepp himself! Ray Copeland directs the group – giving it the hip focus of his few key recordings like this – and titles include "Star Love", "Moon Bees", "Attica Blues" (in two parts), "Steam", "Quiet Dawn", "Hi Fly", "U-Jaama", "Ballad For A Child", "Simone", "Crucificado", :A Change Has Come Over Me", "Goodbye Sweet Pops", and "Skippin'".
