New Dakota Staton with Manny AlbamCongratulations To Someone ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1973/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very hip work from Dakota Staton – a collection of her work for the Groove Merchant label from the early 70s, most of which appeared on the albums Country Man and Madame Foo Foo! Backings here are by the band of Manny Albam – in a mode that's jazzy, but inflected with plenty of soul – and which has the same sort of rhythmic pulse that you'd find in Lou Rawls' best later work for Capitol. The style's a great one for Dakota – one that brings a bit more focus and energy to her music, and which almost sets her up more as a soul singer than a jazz one. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Cry Me A River", "Country Man", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "How Did He Look", "Blues For Tasty", and "A Losing Battle". CD
(Small amount of writing in pen inside booklet.)

New McCoy TynerBlue Bossa ... CD
LRC, 1991. Used ... Out Of Stock
A budget package, but a great little record – a lively session from pianist McCoy Tyner, and one that's served up with a good deal of Latin influence in the rhythms! The sound here is easily on a par with any of Tyner's albums for bigger labels – especially Fantasy in the 70s – and the tracks are long and highly creative, often propelled by a strong sense of rhythm on the bottom, and topped by great solo work from McCoy! The group's a quartet with bass, drums, and added percussion – plus great trumpet work from Claudio Roditi, who isn't on every track, but adds some great moments to the album nonetheless. Titles include a long take on the classic "Blue Bossa", plus "Recife's Blues", "Rotunda", "We'll Be Together", "Traces", and "Natural Bridge". CD
