Linda LewisHeart Strings ... LP
Reprise, 1974. Very Good .... $4.99
Great stuff from Linda Lewis – one of the sweetest soul talents of the 70s! Linda's got a great jazzy vocal style that's somewhere between Minnie Riperton and other more folksy singers, like Ellen McIlwaine, and she's really got a knack for writing great little tracks that have a good groove to them. This album's sort of a combination of tracks from some of her other Reprise albums, plus a few others that didn't appear elsewhere. It includes her classic "Sideways Shuffle", which is always a big hit with the groove scene, plus lots of other nice ones, including "Fathoms Deep", "On The Stage", "I Dunno", and "I'm In Love Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a sticker, some wear, and a bit of minor seam splitting.)

Linda LewisLive In Old Smokey ... CD
Market (UK), 2005. New Copy .... $8.99
One of our favorite female soul singers of the 70s – captured here in a really great recent live show at Ronnie Scotts! The album shows that Linda's lost none of her brilliance over the years – and is still able to work in that dreamy mix of jazz, acoustic guitar, and lightly soulful vocals we loved so much in her classic work for Reprise. But she's got a warmer sound here too – a great small combo mode with plenty of jazz touches, nicely freed up from some of the clunkier styles that sometimes hurt her studio albums. Breezy and beautiful throughout – a great testament to the ongoing strength of Lewis as an artist – with tracks that include "Do You Know Dino", "Love Plateau", "I'm In Love Again", "Waving", "Sideway Shuffle", "Grandaddy's Calypso", "Far Cry", "Moon & I", and "For Love's Sake".

Esperanza SpaldingRadio Music Society ... CD
Telarc, 2012. Used .... $6.99
Maybe the greatest record so far from the lovely Esperanza Spalding – a set that has her moving farther from jazz, into a wonderfully warm style of soul music overall! The mix of modes is exquisite – a blend of Spalding's jazz-trained vocals with some beautiful arrangements that sparkle and glisten with this righteous vibe we'd put right up there with the best 70s recordings by Minnie Riperton or Linda Lewis – a really rare breed that goes way beyond the wonderful promise Esperanza's always had right from the start! The album is an instant treasure – the sort that's sure to please everyone who's already followed Spalding on her journey, yet also win her a huge new audience as well. Q-Tip helped a bit on production, but most of the work is by Spalding herself – and titles include "Radio Song", "Cinnamon Tree", "Crowned & Kissed", "Land Of The Free", "Black Gold", "Let Her", "Endangered Species", "Smile Like That", and "I Can't Help It".

New Frank RosolinoFrank Rosolino – Kenton Presents ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1954. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the first albums ever cut as a leader by trombonist Frank Rosolino – a hip set issued under the Stan Kenton Presents banner for Capitol in the mid 50s – but done in a smaller combo mode than you'd hear with Stan! The setting provides a great showcase for the emerging solo talents of Rosolino on trombone – a player with a soulful swing that get way past his goofy image on the cover – and which is set up here in the company of some great collaborators who include Charlie Mariano on alto sax – playing so strongly, the album might well include him as a co-leader – plus piano from either Claud Williamson or Pete Jolly, trumpet from Sam Noto, bass from Max Bennett or Curtis Counce, and drums from Mel Lewis or Stan Levey. There's not only a lot of Kenton influence in the players, but a lot of Bethlehem Records styles as well – a reference that definitely shapes the sound of this set, and makes it a strong one for any fan of 50s work on that label – or Mode Records as well. Titles are a mix of standards and originals – and include "Ragamuffin", "Linda", "Carioca", "Besame Mucho", "Yo Yo", and "Freckles". CD

David SanbornSanborn ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy .... $14.99
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the backings strongly – blowing some of his best notes with surprisingly little flourish, and crafting a soulful lead that's supported by work from Hiram Bullock on guitar, Rosalinda De Leon on keyboards, and Victor Lewis on drums. There's a bit of vocals on the album – courtesy of Patti Austin, Lain Groves, Phoebe Snow, and Paul Simon – and titles include "Indio", "Smile", "Concrete Boogie", "Mamacita", and "7th Ave".
