Kensington MarketAardvark ... LP
Warner, 1969. Sealed ... $28.99
Even better than the first album from Kensington Market – and a set that really extends their unique sound! There's a bit more confidence on a few of the tunes here – but never too much to dominate the group's personal approach to their music – and the instrumentation gets a bit bold at points, with a bit of fuzz on guitar, some moog and organ, and drums that make some of the best numbers move into compelling rhythms. The vocals always have a nicely lyrical feel – a good fit for the poetic lyrics – and titles include "Said I Could Be Happy", "If It Is Love", "Help Me", "Think About The Times", "Cartoon", "Dorian", "Side I Am", "Ciao", and "The Thinker". LP, Vinyl record album

KG Band (Kiki Gyan)Disco Train (LP & 7" single) ... LP
Hot Casa (Belgium), 1980. New Copy ... $15.99
A short, but totally killer Ghanaian disco record from KG Band – which is led and produced by multi-instrumentalist Kiki Gyan – and recorded at Lagos' Decca Studios in 1980! Disco Train is a rare one – with one long grooving dancefloor stormer per side. Each cut is a really sweet blend of global boogie, funk and soul – with distinctly African elements, too! "Disco Train" rolls beyond the 10 minute mark without coming close running off the rails. The drums don't stop and the bass is nice and funky – with some groovy falsetto vocals sung in English, a nicely vamping guitar groove, horns and Afro percussion. "Loving You" runs just shy of 10 minutes on the other side – and while the title of the song and the quiet opening seconds might trick you into the thinking it's gonna be straight and mellow, it's actually got a surprisingly adventurous groove overall! The drums are a bit feverish, which is a nice foil for the easygoing vibe and romantic lyricism – and it's again anchored by some funky bass, guitar and African percussion. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition. Includes a bonus 7" single featuring a radio edit by The Boogie Gentlemen.)

New King CrimsonIn The Court Of The Crimson King ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s! This set's the first-ever utterance from the King Crimson empire – the initial outing of the group, which featured Greg Lake on vocals, and lots of airy, darkly atmospheric guitar from the legendary Robert Fripp! The song structure is quite unusual – and the overall feel is less academically tangled than some of the later records – a feature that makes this album much more sought out by mainstream rockers looking for an intro to the group than some of the later sets. Yet having said that, there's also a pretty amazing approach here – somewhat obtuse, and definitely not looking for any radio edit hits – more just magical musings from a very unique ensemble. Peter Sinfield contributed the lyrics, which are sung by Lake – and Michael Giles handles drums and percussion, while Ian MacDonald plays flute, sax, keyboards, and more. Titles include "Moonchild", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "I Talk To The Wind", "Epitaph", and "Court Of The Crimson King". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later EG pressing. Cover has some wear, a peeled mark and residue from sticker removal, and a small rip on the spine.)

KliqueLet's Wear It Out! ... LP
MCA, 1982. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A sweet sweet groover from Klique – with a sound that more than makes us forgive them for their silly costumes on the cover! The tunes on the set have a wonderfully simple approach to the groove – one that you might not expect from the group's glossy image, but which is served up here by some snapping boogie-styled rhythms, jazzily gliding keyboard lines, and some extremely catchy lyrics that are traded off nicely by the members of the group. The set's more than proof that you can't judge a book by its cover – and is a real lost treasure from the 80s groove scene! Titles include "Dance Like Crazy", "I Can't Shake This Feeling", "Baby You Can Be The One", "Let Me Do", "I Can't Get Enough", "Feel So Good", and "Best Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Femi KutiFight To Win ... CD
MCA, 2001. Used ... $4.99
Fela's funky son is back – sounding more soulful than ever! The album's a great one – an incredibly solid effort that's light years beyond Femi's first two LPs – spanning a globe of grooves with one foot in his father's Afro Funk tradition, and another in the future of soul, hip hop, and funk. The set features guest work by Common, Money Mark, Mos Def, and others – and tracks include "Do Your Best", "Traitors Of Africa", "Tension Grip Nigeria", "Fight To Win", "Stop AIDS", "Alkebu-Lan", "One Day Someday", and "Missing Link".

Patti LaBelleBe Yourself ... CD
MCA, 1989. Used ... $4.99
A hit set from the end of the 80s – one that showed Patti still going strong in her third decade in soul music! The set's got a style that's decidedly more modern than some of the classic work we know from Patti – but her vocals are still very strongly in place, and if anything, the overall presentation of the album has her strutting her stuff as a diva even more strongly than before. Titles include "Yo Mister", "I Can't Complain", "If You Asked Me To", "I'm Scared Of You", "Can't Bring Me Down", "Need A Little Faith", and "I Can Fly". CD

Ronnie LawsPressure Sensitive ... CD
Blue Note, 1975. Used ... $7.99
Classic bit of 70's fusion, played by Ronnie on tenor and flute, and with a group that includes some excellent keyboard work by Joe Sample. The highlight of the record is the big sample cut "Tidal Wave", but it also includes the great groover "Always There", which was covered a million times over by other bands during the 70's. Wayne Henderson produced, and the record is an archetypal example of his "At Home Productions" sound. CD

Jarrod LawsonJarrod Lawson ... CD
Jarrod Lawson, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow that seems to tie together distant strands of influence – from Marvin Gaye to Gil Scott Heron to jazz singers like Al Jarreau, Kurt Elling, or Mark Murphy! Backings are jazzy, but with a focused, soulful groove – warmed up by keyboards, but kept fresh with lots of live instrumentation that really matches the rich sense of inflection in Lawson's voice – an amazing range, but one that's never overstated, overdone, or overused. All the tracks are originals – and the record's one that you'll be spinning for years to come! Titles include "Sleepwalkers", "Walk In The Park", "Redemption", "Needed", "Everything I Need", "All That Surrounds", "Spiritual Eyes", and "Together We'll Stand". CD

Michel LegrandYoung Girls Of Rochefort (US pressing) ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $24.99
One of our favorite soundtracks ever – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This US package is even better than the original French one – with a nice colored book inside the gatefold cover that has some great photos and lyrics (translated) for the songs. Titles include "Nous Voyagons De Ville En Ville", "Depart De Camionners", "Arivee Des Camionneurs", "Chanson De Maxence", "Marins, Amins, Amants Ou Maris", and "Chanson De Jumelles". LP, Vinyl record album

New Mad-HattersMad-Hatters At Midnight ... LP
20th Century, 1964. Very Good- ... $8.99
Excellent little small combo record, cut by this obscure funky jazz group for 20th Century – and probably the only thing they ever did! The album's got a number of tight short cuts, played by organ, vibes, and guitar – and titles include "Soul Samba", "Mad Hatters Stomp", "Soul Sister", "Monkey Children", "All Soul", and "That Sanctified Thing". Very very nice, and more like an album you'd find on Sue than one that you'd find on 20th Century – with a heavy duty sound that's almost in the funky 45 mode! LP, Vinyl record album

Martha & The VandellasDance Party ... CD
Gordy (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – but which also offers a lot more than you might expect – way more than just a few cash-in dancefloor tunes! True, the whole thing's pretty lively – and titles include the group's seminal version of "Dancing In The Street" – still the only version you'll really ever need, despite years and years of countless covers that always fall short of the mark. But the set's also got a wonderful range that really displays the lead power of Martha Reeves – hewn tightly to the supporting Vandellas backups – and filled with a rich sense of feeling on titles that include the classic "Nowhere To Run", plus other Motown goodies like "Hitch Hike", "Mickey's Monkey", and "The Jerk". CD

Pat MartinoJoyous Lake ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A mid-70s classic from guitarist Pat Martino – a tightly jamming set that features Pat on synthesizer as well as guitar – working alongside keyboardist Delmar Brown, and some very heavy rhythms from bassist Mark Leonard and drummer Kenwood Dennard! The sound is often in that jamming fusion style that brings rock influences into play with jazz – but there's also moments that slide into spacier moments too – sounds that we like even more for their spiritual overtones, and which provide a nice respite from the jams. Titles include "Joyous Lake", "Line Games", "Pyramidal Vision", "Mardi Gras", "M'Wandishi", and "Song Bird". CD

Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathProcession – Live At Toulouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing music from Chris McGregor and his legendary Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – easily one of the most exciting forces in British jazz in the 70s, and one fo the few who was still sounding their best in the latter half of the decade! McGregor's got as much bite and burn here as with his famous earlier combo, The Blue Notes – and the lineup here boasts ex-members of that group – Dudu Pukwana on alto, Johnny Dyani on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums – all joining together perfectly with McGregor's long-spun piano lines. The ensemble also features other key British players – Mike Osborne on alto, Evan Parker on tenor, Harry Beckett and Mark Charig on trumpets, and Radu Malfatti on trombone – creating this bold horn section that stretches to the skies on waves of soul! Two lengthy pieces "Sunrise On The Sun" and "Kwaholo" bookend the shorter piece "Sonia". CD features three more tracks not on the original album – "TBS", "Andromeda", and "You Ain't Gonna Know Me Cos You Think You Know Me". CD

Harry MillerDifferent Times, Different Places ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from the late Harry Miller – material never issued during the course of his too-short life, but a great illustration of his really unique contribution to British jazz at the time! Miller's work on bass is wonderful throughout – very rich in feeling, and with a grounded organic quality that brings some especially spiritual sounds out of the players on the album's two different sessions – the first a 1973 date with Louis Moholo on drums, Chris McGregor on piano, Nick Evans on trombone, and Mike Osborne on alto sax. The style of the set is very much in the best post-South Africa spirit of McGregor's work of the time – rolling lines that Miller contributes to strongly, spinning out with a rhythmic pulse on long tracks with lots of open space for solos. Titles from this date include "Touch Hungry", "Quandry", and "Bloomfield". The second set of material is equally nice – a 1976 live date with Moholo on drums and Osborne on alto, plus Keith Tippett on piano, Mark Charig on trumpet, and Malcolm Griffiths on trombone. The long-flowing lines of the music are strongly in place again, but the performance also has some freer elements from the horns at various points – but always comes back to the energy of the core. Titles include "Eli's Song", "Mofolo", "Something Like This", and another version of "Touch Hungry". CD

New Red MitchellWhat I Am ... LP
Caprice (Sweden), 1979. Sealed ... $14.99
A funny thing happened to Red Mitchell in the 70s – he moved to Sweden and got very very hip! This album's great proof of that change – as Red steps out from being just a jazz bassist, and sings a bit, plays piano, and generally works in a mode that would really surprise you if you heard him during the 50s. The vocal tunes have a style that's halfway between Bob Dorough and Mose Allison – a bit rootsy, a bit tongue in cheek, and often with very nice lyrics by Red himself – and they're set up amidst a shifting lineup that also features Bosse Broberg on trumpet, Nisse Sandstrom on tenor, and Goran Strandberg on additional piano. Overall, the album's mostly mellow – but there's one or two tracks that groove nicely with some warm, round bass tones. Titles include "Talking", "Tango Magnolia", "Micro Thought Number Two", "Now What Are We Gonna Do", "Envy", "You're Me", and "Avsked". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tyler MitchellLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.99
An ultra-hip set from bassist Tyler Mitchell – a player who doesn't often record as a leader, but really makes his mark with this live performance from Smalls! Mitchell's group here is a great one – a really cohesive quintet with Josh Evans on trumpet, Abraham Burton on tenor, Spike Wilner on piano, and Eric McPherson on drums – all players who come together on the album's original compositions, and who have the inventiveness to keep things spontaneous and flowing on the very long tracks – all tunes that go well past a dozen or more minutes in length. Wilner's especially nice – bold, yet sensitive – and a great bridge between the leader and hornmen. Titles include "A Time Called Now", "La Tendresse", "Caton", "Taking It With Me", and "Taj's Theme". CD

James MoodyJames Moody (1959) ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good- ... $1.99
Great work from Moody's "second phase" – the post-Overbrook time in which he picks up the flute, drops a bit of the bop style, and starts working in a much more complicated style that showed that he had a hell of a lot of room to grow as an artist! This album's Moody's second for Argo – recorded in 1959, with help from the brilliant arranger Tom McIntosh. Players include Johnny Coles, Musa Kaleem, Gene Kee, and McIntosh – and the album features the first reading of Moody's famous "Darben The Redd Foxx", plus "Cookie", "RBQ", "Daahoud", and McIntosh's perennial favorite, "With Malice Toward None". LP, Vinyl record album

Ken MouleKen Moule Arranges For ... LP

A strong bit of British postwar jazz – as the group that Moule "arranges for . . ." includes Don Rendell on tenor, Ronnie Ross on baritone, Alan Ganley on drums, Dougie Robinson on alto, and Moule himself on piano. The approach isn't necessarily bop, but it's definitely in the school of some of the more arranged sides by Ronnie Scott and some of the Tempo Records crew. Titles include "Son of Ponckle", "Cobbly", "The Tired Badger", "High Ratio", and "You've Done Something to My Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Myers/The American BreedNo Way To Treat A Lady ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... $9.99
Stanley Myers could always do a pretty great job with a soundtrack when he wanted to – and this little gem is a perfect example of his talent! The album mixes dramatic themes with groovier numbers – the best of which use electric bass at the bottom of larger orchestrations to create a slow, syncopated groove that's more than a bit funky – at times, almost in a Serge Gainsbourg/French pop sort of way. The album includes the vocal number "A Quiet Place", sung by the American Breed, plus the tracks "St Matthew Fashion", "The Fifth Victim", "Kate Comes On", "Alpert Memorial", "Kate's Place", "Nail Him", and "The Last Act".

New New BirthBlind Baby/Comin From All Ends ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1974/1975. Used ... $11.99
Two strong mid 70s groovers from The New Birth! Blind Baby was the band's first for the Buddah label – and it shows them taking a strong step away from their work at RCA with Harvey Fuqua. This one has the group (ever-enormous as always!) absorbing some of the other elements of modern soul that were floating around at the time – and they make a nice mark for themselves on the album's mix of ballad tracks and uptempo numbers. Titles include "Blind Man", "Blind Baby", "Dream Merchant", "Forever", "I Remember Well", and "Granddaddy" Comin From All Ends is back in the RCA groove, and features the group in that funky ensemble style they were hitting with the Nite Liters, Fuqua, and other related combos. Tracks include "Lady Love", "End to End", "I Wash My Hands of the Whole Damn Deal", "Echoes of My Mind", and the classic groover "Comin From All Ends", a nice full-on funky number that runs for about 8 minutes.

New New OrderBrotherhood (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Factory/Rhino, 1986. New Copy ... $14.99 24.99
The steely cover's an apt one – as New Order have still largely held onto their edge here – those raspy guitars and moodier moments that first marked their early work – all elements that keep things compelling amidst some of the more tuneful moments of the songs! There's definitely a lot more hooks than before, but most tracks are still pretty far from commercial pop – and if anything, showcase the preference for darker sounds that would mark the alt rock underground that was springing up in the US, clearly a generation inspired by New Order's initial experiments. Titles include "All Day Long", "Weirdo", "Paradise", "State Of The Nation", "Angel Dust", "Every Little Counts", and "As It Is When It Was". LP, Vinyl record album
(Super-heavy pressing – better than the original!)

RCA, 1957. Very Good ... $2.99
A rare "with orchestra" outing from pianist Phineas Newborn – one that has his gentle keys out front of larger backings by Dennis Farnon – all cast in the kind of dreamy mode you might expect from the title! Yet while the whole thing's certainly got a late night feel, Newborn's piano work is still quite strongly up in the mix – never smothered in strings, and instead often stepping along with the same force as some of his trio outings – but often set free from more rhythmic modes, in a way that makes for some of Phineas' most sophisticated stylings on RCA. Titles include "Lazy Mood", "Bali Hai", "If I Should Lose You", "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", and "While My Lady Sleeps". LP, Vinyl record album

OmarMan ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $19.99
A killer set from Omar – an artist we've loved right from the start, and someone who's never ever let us down! The record's got a great lean feel – almost a return to the modes that Omar first released on his classic material for Talking Loud – that tight, no-nonsense approach to soul that really blows away most of the competition by showing that a heck of a lot can be done with just a little! Omar's vocals are very firmly in the lead – serving up positive, thoughtful lyrics that show why his work has always gone far beyond any mainstream cliches in R&B – and which continue to mark the man as one of the most powerful forces in the underground. The set's got guest work from Scratch Professor, Caron Wheeler, and a few others – but honestly, Omar's the Man who's really got us paying attention all the way through! Titles include "I Can Listen", "The Man", "Simplify", "I Love Being With You", "When You Touch We Touch", and "F*ck War Make Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, Early 60s. Sealed ... $8.99
A pretty basic soundtrack, but with some nice moments by Ortolani – done around the time he recorded the more famous soundtrack for Mondo Cane. The album does have some nice tunes with weird jazzy instrumentation – kind of nightclubby numbers with a mix of jazz and loungey styles – and solos on sax or piano, with some occasional bongo lines - almost like jazzy moments in Nino Rota scores. Titles include "He Or She?", "The Rites Of Sex", "Twist 84", "The Glutton", "The Steam Bath", "At The Shrine", and "The Debutantes". LP, Vinyl record album

Caroline PeytonMock Up ... LP
Bar-B-Q, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A wild set of early 70s leftfield folk from Caroline Peyton – a freewheeling batch of tunes that's a little bit more out there than the warmer, sunshine folk soul of the later Intuition album – but a unique gem that's a great showcase for Caroline's stunning voice, and the songwriting of partner Mark Bingham. The duo's creative origins trace back to a hippie commune outside of Bloomington, Indiana – and the tunes often feel like an unselfconscious, artier riff on the Cali folk scene of the time. The arrangements are built around the voice, and piano on many of the tracks. Unconventional, but warm and true – well worth a late discovery. Original album tracks include "The Sky In Japan Is Always Close To You", "Pull", "Don Beggs", "Tuna", "Engram", "Sweet Misery", "Hook", "Gone For A Day" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

This relative goldmine of loopy left coast hip hop is comprised of alternate mixes of the hits and album cuts by the legendary crew – with remix work and appearances by Jay Dee, Brand New Heavies, Jazzyfatnastees, Rae & Christian, Beatminerz, Kenny Dope and others – plus some choice b-sides! 24 tracks in all: "Soul Flower (Brand New Heavies version)", "Ya Mama (Matt Dike rmx)", "Otha Fish (LA Jay rmx)", "Drop (Da Beatminerz rmx)", "Pandemonium", "Y? (Be Like That) (Jay Dee rmx)", "Emerald Butterfly", "Runnin' (Rae & Christian rmx)" feat Mark 1 & Funky Fresh Few, "Pork (OG version)", "She Said (Fuzz Face & tWANK boy rmx)", "Soul Flower (2 Tha 3 mix)" and more!

Gregory PorterWater (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Motema, 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
Gregory Porter's a hip little singer – just the sort we love to discover in jazz, and the type that only comes around once in a blue moon! Like Jon Hendricks, Mark Murphy, or Kurt Elling – all perfect references for Porter's style – Greg has a wonderful way of coming up with his own lyrics for a tune – making him way more than just a singer of standards, and instead a richly expressive voice that has every bit to offer as you might get from a jazz instrumentalist! The arrangements are great, too – handled by Porter with help from pianist Chip Crawford and producer Kamau Kenyatta – bold, soulful, and soaring on the best tracks – all in beautiful declaration of Gregory's rich power and presence. Titles include a great version of Wayne Shorter's "Black Nile", and the original tracks "1960 What", "Lonely One", "Water", "Pretty", "Illusion", and "Magic Cup". Also features the bonus track "1960 What (Opolopo rmx)". LP, Vinyl record album

New Prince Lasha & Sonny SimmonsCry! ... LP
Contemporary, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A classic of spiritual jazz! The album is one of the few rare pairings of Sonny Simmons and Prince Lasha from the 60s – and it's arguably the greatest album they ever cut! The set was recorded for the Contemporary label in LA, but it's far far different than the cool jazz that was the label's stock in trade during most of the 50s – done instead with a pulsating spiritual feel that really takes off as the album progresses! The lineup features the twin-reed frontline of Lasha on flute and Simmons on alto, plus an amazing rhythm section that includes 2 bass players (Gary Peacock and Mark Procter), who really give the tunes a pulsating feel overall – plus drums by Gene Stone. Titles include the famous groover "Congo Call", plus the tracks "AY", "Lost Generation", "Red's Mood", and "Green & Gold". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare Earth get some super-heavy help on this set from Norman Whitfield – who wrote all the tracks for the record, and produced the whole thing with a thundering intensity to match his best work with The Temptations! Given Rare Earth's more rock-styled bent, the sound's a bit different here – but the record has an undeniably soulful quality that really makes it stand out – even amongst other excellent early work by the group. Titles include the super-extended jammer "Ma", which runs for over 17 minutes in length – plus great versions of "Hum Along & Dance", "Smiling Faces Sometimes", and "Big John Is My Name". LP, Vinyl record album

RedmanMuddy Waters (3D lenticular cover) ... LP
Def Jam, 1996. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $34.99 45.98
Redman's third album – and a mad 90s classic – for both the Funk Doc himself, and for the Def Jam label! By this point, Redman has perfected his wylin'-out blunted rhyme style, spitted over heavy, funkified east coast beats. Much of the production is handled by Erick Sermon & Rockwilder, and sounds killer to this day. We don't dare discount Redman's previous couple LPs, but honestly, this might be his high water mark! . Includes "Whateva Man", "Yesh Yesh Y'All", "Smoke Buddah", "Case Closed", "Mary Jane", "Do What Ya Feel", "It's Like That (My Big Brother)", "Soopaman Luva 3", "Da Bump", & "Rock Da Spot". 17 tracks in all.

New Steve ReidRhythmatism ... CD
Mustevic/Universal Sound (UK), 1974. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic mid 70s set led by drummer Steve Reid – fronting a group of players who groove tightly, but with a really sinister sound! Reid is an absolute steamroller on this set – laying down a fast-paced, super tight funky backdrop for the rest of the players to groove fluidly over the top. Three of the five tracks run well north of the 10 minute mark – and those pieces are strong as can be, providing just enough room for the players to lay out a groove that lies beautifully between the mid 60s avant garde of Ornette Coleman and the spiritual soul jazz of the mid 70s. The core group includes pianist Les Walker (who penned most of the material here), plus David Wertman on a wonderfully rubbery bass, Michael Keith on trombone and Arthur Blythe on alto sax – with guests Chris Capers (trumpet), Melvin Smith (guitar) and Charles Tyler (baritone sax) on "Center Of The Earth". Great stuff, with a really dark edge! Other tracks include "Kai", "Rocks (For Cannonball)", "C You Around", and "One Minute Please". CD

Sonny RollinsRoad Shows Vol 1 ... CD
EmArcy/Doxy, 1980s/2000s. Used ... $6.99
A tremendous tribute to the tenor talents of Sonny Rollins – live material from two different decades, all of it illustrating his continuing commitment to creative improvisation in a performance setting! Sonny's one of those guys you've always got to catch when he comes to town – a player who never fails to please, no matter his age, contemporary recording modes, or anything else – an always-creative saxophonist who continues to inspire audiences whenever he plays. The work on this set is pulled from shows starting in 1980, up to 2007 – with players who include Clifton Anderson on trombone, Mark Soskin on piano, Bobby Broom on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums. Titles include "Blossom", "Easy Living", "Tenor Madness", "Best Wishes", "More Than You Know", and "Nice Lady". CD

Motown, 1970. Very Good ... $2.99
A landmark record for Diana – her first solo effort after leaving the Supremes, and a well-conceived batch of tracks produced by Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson! The album's got a warm, mature approach that really separates the work from Diana's earlier girl group past – as Ashford & Simpson take her into territory that hints at many of the musical changes to come, but which still has a freshness that breathes new life into Ross' vocal approach. Includes the super-bit hit version of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", plus the tunes "Reach Out & Touch Somebody's Hand", "Now That There's You", "You're All I Need To Get By", "These Things Will Keep Me Loving You", "Dark Side Of The World", and "Where There Was Darkness".

Motown, 1968. Very Good ... $6.99
Motown's two slickest and most successful groups match up perfectly in this surprisingly nice album from 1968! It might be easy to write this off as a mistake or inessential session – but thanks to some great arrangements by HB Barnum, Paul Riser, and Gene Page, plus great vocals by the groups, the record shines as much as any other Motown set from the time! The vocals are traded back and forth nicely between the groups – with the guys dominating some moments, the gals others, but never in a kitschy way. Includes a lot of Motown standards redone – like "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me", "Try It Baby", "I Second That Emotion", and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" – but also includes a tasty version of "Funky Broadway", which has some great fuzzy guitar work!

A great little later set from Charlie Rouse – recorded for the Landmark label, and done in a real "back to basics" style! The format is modern, Monkish hardbop – a full set of Thelonious originals, performed lovingly by Rouse, Monk's most important sideman of the 60s. The tunes are taken a bit more freely than on their classic readings by Monk – which is a good thing, as it makes the album much more than just a rehash of older themes. Players on the set include Don Cherry, George Cables, Buddy Montgomery, and Jessica Williams – and tunes include "Nutty", "Ruby My Dear", "Blue Monk", "Epistrophy", and "In Walked Bud". CD

The album features Rugolo arranging for a tight group of west coast reed players – including Bud Shank, Dave Pell, and Bob Cooper – and the tracks are angular, complicated, and dosed with that right mixture of modernism and swing that made Kenton's best work from the early 50s so great. Titles include "Theme For Alto", "Igor Beaver", "Impressionism", "Our Waltz", "Polytonal Blues", and "Collaboration". LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah SandersElevation ... LP
Impulse, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
A fantastic album by Pharoah Sanders – one of his later albums for Impulse, but one of his best! The record has Pharoah grooving in a strongly modal style – working up long passages of rhythm, piano, and percussion that really build on the promise delivered in earlier tunes on records like Jewels Of Thought and Tauhid – that strong sense of flow that was possibly Sanders' greatest contribution to the world of spiritual jazz – over and above his own work on tenor sax! The tunes never go too far out, and have a really joyous feel that we totally love – opening Pharoah up with that bright spirit that makes some of his 70s work so great, really pushing him past the darkness of the immediate post-Coltrane years. Other players include Joe Bonner on piano, Calvin Hill on bass, Michael White on violin, and Michael Carvin on drums – and titles include the tremendous track "Greeting To Saud", plus "Elevation", "Spiritual Blessing", "Ore Se Re", and "The Gathering". LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 ... LP
Actuel (France), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $28.99
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich tapestry of sound, but with less of the structuring righteous concepts of some of Archie's other work – especially his sides for Impulse. Shepp had really been experiencing some new freedoms on the French scene of the late 60s – even more so than in the US avant outfield – and you can definitely hear him taking flight here, with a like-minded group of players that includes Clifford Thornton on trombone and shenai, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Joseph Dujean on guitar, Beb Guerin on bass, and Claud Delcloo on drums. This first part of the live set features one long track – "The Early Bird" – a slow building number that goes increasingly outside as it progresses, featuring some very over the top solo work from Shepp, who also plays a bit of piano on the set!

Although the bulk of Singer's other work is more traditional R&B sax material, this LP has a very good raw funky feel, with some nice tight guitar and organ grooves that spur Singer on to new heights. Manu Dibango sits in on the session on organ and tenor, and the set includes a huge number of funky classics like "Saturday Night In Watts, Act One", "Paris Soul Food", "Malcolm X", and more!

Prestige, 1969. Very Good- ... $11.99
A sweetly funky set from Johnny Hammond Smith – a date done right at the start of the jazz funk era on Prestige – and one that marks a nicely heavy change in Johnny's sound! The format here is quite different than the style of Smith's early 60s work – with Hammond that's much more sharply tuned and direct – set amidst longer tracks that are freely jamming – served up with instrumentation that includes Rusty Bryant on tenor and a bit of alto, Wally Richardson on guitar, Bob Bushnell on Fender bass, and Bernard Purdie on drums. The best tracks are long, jamming numbers that really take off nicely – and titles include "Purdy Dirty", "Up To Date", "All Soul", and "Soul Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

The tunes include two numbers by Tom McIntosh – a telling inclusion, given the way the album brings together the same strands of soul, swinging, and cerebral that McIntosh brought to his compositions in the early 60s. Smith's got a great way of bringing out the most sensitive aspects of the tunes, while still setting the players free to find their own voice – thanks partly to the long takes on these live recordings – and titles include "Fifty Six", "Stew Peas", "A Portrait Of You", "With Malice Towards None", "The Cup Bearers", and "Junior".

Sy Smith and Mark De Clive-Lowe – an amazing combination that makes for an equally amazing record! Sy's always been great, no matter what the setting – but this time around, all instruments and production are handled by Mark, who gives the record a sweetly cosmic groove! The album bristles with excitement from the very first note – and Smith's singing has this wickedly spacious quality – all the depth of soul we've loved from the start, but a new sense of power that slides in perfectly with the crackling rhythms and jazzy keyboards from De Clive-Lowe. Rahsaan Patterson guests on the cut "Nights (Feel Like Getting Down)" – a beautiful remake of the Billy Ocean classic – and other tunes include a version of Teena Marie's "Teena" – plus great Smith originals that include "The Fast & Curious", "Truth", "Personal Paradise", "The Primacy Effect", "Messages From The Stars", and "The Ooh To My Aah".

New Soul ChildrenChronicle ... LP
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good- ... $7.99
The Soul Children were a wonderful Memphis vocal group – with a two parts female/two parts male vocal style that just sounded incredible. All the members of the group were great singers, hand-picked by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, and the overall sound was a mixture of rootsy southern soul, and sweeter harmony sounds. There truly was no other group like them – and this late 70's compilation brings together the band's greatest hits recorded for the Stax label. Included are "Give 'Em Love", "I'll Understand", "Tighten Up My Thang", "The Sweeter He Is", "Hold On, I'm Coming", "Hearsay", "Don't Take My Kindness For Weakness", "It Ain't always What You Do (It's Who You Let See You Do It)", "Love Is A Hurtin' Thing", "I'll Be The Other Woman", "Love Makes It Right", and "Can't Give Up A Good Thing".

South Central Avenue Municipal Blues BandSoul Of Bonnie & Clyde ... LP
Bluesway/ABC, Late 60s. Very Good ... $28.99
Forget the "blues" in the title – because this is funky jazz from LA! The record was one of many in the "Bonnie & Clyde" subgenre of the late 60s, released to cash in on either the fame of the movie or the single "Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde" – and like so many of those records, this one has nothing to do at all with the movie. Instead, the "blues band" is a collection of great LA soul jazzers – like Joe Sample, Bobby Bryant, Wayne Henderson, Artie Butler, and Paul Humphrey – grooving away in a style that sounds like some of the excellent Jazz Crusaders side projects from the late 60s on World Pacific. The band's got a pretty full sound, and although some tracks are trying for an older jazz sound that gets a bit bluesy at times – there's also some killer funky numbers written by Artie Butler with that groovy funky sound that he brought to his best soundtrack and funk work at the time. Arthur Adams gets in plenty of mean guitar licks – and titles include "How's Your Clyde?", "Bowl Of Soul", "Soul Of Bonnie & Clyde", "Blues For Bonnie & Clyde", and "South Central Ave Municipal Blues Band".

A great tenorist, heard here in a wonderfully rich setting – a set of long, open tracks that really let Grant Stewart solo strongly – all with the special sort of energy that seems to take place in these Smalls Live recordings! Most numbers push up towards the 10 minute mark, leaving lots of room for Grant's deep, soulful lines on tenor – served up with perfectly matched rhythmic support from the trio of Tardo Hammer on piano, David Wong on bass, and Phil Stewart on drums. As on other label releases, the presentation is wonderful – very basic, in ways that really let the magic of the performance come through brilliantly – a quality that's made Smalls Live one of our favorite jazz labels of the 21st Century. Titles include "Reflections", "Make Someone Happy", "Mr Lucky", "Get Out Of Town", "Somewhere In The Night", and "Meaning Of The Blues". CD

This one is a groover from beginning to end, kind of reminding us of Tribe's Midnight Marauders in overall feel. T-Love is somewhere between Jill Scott and MC Lyte – a soulful diva with a stridently smooth style, and a proud out front approach to the rhymes that recalls the best late 80s/early 90s ladies of hip hop. Pretty much everything the above mentioned producers turns into groovy gold, so we don't need to tell you what to expect from the beats! Includes "The Reel Love", "Swing Malindy", "Fortress", "Who Smoked Sunshine", "Witch-Bitch?", "Chiquita", Wanna-Beez" featuring Chali 2na, and more. CD

Buddy TateTate's Date ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good+ ... $18.99
A set that has Buddy Tate working with Pat Jenkins on trumpet, Ben Richardson on alto and baritone, and Eli Robinson on trombone – all with rhythm from Sadik Hakim on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. The group's a bit fuller than the usual Swingville session, but Hakim's gentle approach to the piano makes for a nicely personal sort of feel here – one that touches the bolder horn passages with a good degree of sensitivity, and which pushes the group into plenty of playful riffs! Titles include "Blow Low", "Idling", "Me N You", and "No Kidding". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing. Cover has light wear, and a bit of clear tape on the edge. Label has a small mark from an old sticker.)

TavaresSky High ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Very Good ... $0.99
A stone 70s classic from Tavares – quite possibly the group's biggest album, and a masterpiece of LA vocal group soul! The album's biggest claim to fame is the massive hit "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel", recorded by the group for this set, but blown to the heights through it's huge use in the film Saturday Night Fever. But although that hit might mark them as a disco group, Tavares are still very much in the strongest style of their best early vocal group sets – coming together magically as a group, even when the rhythms are a bit uptempo, and sounding great on tracks that include "To The Other Man", "The Mighty Power Of Love", "Bein With You", "Ridin High", "Wonderful", and "Guiding Star". LP, Vinyl record album

Reinforced/P-Vine (Japan), 1996. Used ... $2.99
Certified dopeness from Dego and Mark Mac, who you might otherwise know as 4Hero, as well as a half dozen other aliases (Manix, Nu Era, Jacob's Optical Stairway, etc).

Clark TerryDuke With A Difference ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Hmmm . . . Don't know what the "difference" is here, given that the set was one of a number of Duke-inspired sessions of the late 50s, but given that Terry was a big force in the best ones, and that he's working here with some of Duke's best players, we'll give the set a thumbs up! The album features Terry in lead on trumpet, plus alto by Johnny Hodges, tenor by Paul Gonsalves, piano by Billy Strayhorn, vibes by Tyree Glenn, and trombone by Quentin Jackson – and arrangements are by either Mercer Ellington or Terry. Marian Bruce sings lead vocals on "In A Sentimental Mood", and the other, instrumental, tunes include "Cottontail", "Just Squeeze Me", "Mood Indigo", and "Come Sunday". LP, Vinyl record album

Carla ThomasComfort Me ... CD
Stax (Japan), 1966. Used ... $6.99
One of the sexiest covers ever from Carla Thomas – and one of her most sultry records, too – a set that really has her growing up, stylistically – and coming across with a new sort of boldness in her vocals! The production is prime 60s Stax, with a slightly classy touch for the lady – and Thomas' vocals are definitely center stage – as she leaves her mark on familiar tunes like "What The World Needs Now", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", and "Yes I'm Ready" – then really takes off on numbers like "Comfort Me", "No Time To Lose", "Move On Drifter", and "Another Night Without My Man".
