Vincent HerringEarly On – Evidence/Dawnbird ... CD
32 Jazz, 1991/1992. Used 2CD ... $9.99
Evidence is an early moment of brilliance from Vincent Herring – and just the sort of set to make him one of the strongest young talents to emerge in jazz during the 90s! There's a rock-solid feel to the set – an approach that's steeped in classic hardbop modes, but which has traces of modernism too – never too overstated, but some sharper undercurrents that mark Herring's playing nicely as a bit deeper than the usual altoist. The rest of the group should get a good deal of credit, too – as players like Wallace Roney on trumpet and Mulgrew Miller on piano really share this sensibility with Herring. Titles include "I Sing A Song", "Never Forget", "Soul Leo", "Mr Wizard", "Voyage", and "Evidence". Dawnbird is a solid, soulful work from Vincent Herring – blowing here wonderfully on alto and soprano sax, with a sense of feeling and creative energy that really makes him one of the key players of his generation! The proceedings are relatively straight, but they're also totally great – open, honest expression that's a nice update of 70s indie jazz modes – held together tightly by a rhythm section that includes Mulgrew Miller on piano, Ira Coleman on bass, and Billy Drummond on drums on most of the records – or Keven Hays, Dwayne Burno, and Carl Allen on a few remaining selections. Wallace Roney plays trumpet on the first set of tracks – Scott Wendholt on the others – and the whole album has a sharp-edged quintet format with an occasional bite, often rolling out in the kind of upbeat lines that usually make Herring sound best. Titles include "Sound Check", "August Afternoon", "Dawnbird", "Dr Jamie", "Toku Do", and "The Dark Side Of Dewey". CD

Bernard Herrmann/Joel McNeelyMarnie ... CD
Varese, 2000. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful recording of the Bernard Herrmann score for Marnie – one of the lesser-remembered Alfred Hitchcock soundtracks, but work that's definitely on a par with Herrmann's work for Vertigo and other classic thrillers! The main theme is really lovely – and repeats in these haunting ways – blended in woodwinds with strings on the album's orchestral passages – echoed throughout and mixed with some more dramatic action moments too. Titles include "Mark's Office", "Shock", "The Street", "Finale", "Blood", "The Dial", and "Bridal Suite". CD

Paul HumphreyPaul Humphrey Sextet ... LP
Discovery, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Very different work than usual for superdrummer Paul Humphrey – a warm, acoustic set of soul jazz – with a very different approach than his 70s albums! Humphrey's really stepping out here as a strong straight jazz leader – working with a group that includes west coast hornmen Buster Cooper, Oscar Brashear, and Herman Riley – arranged by the pianist in the group, Llew Mathews. The tunes are nearly all originals – done with a post-Horace Silver style that mixes the soulful and the introspective, and which slides into lots of warm tones and colors, all while still keeping its groove. Titles include "My Mind Is Free", "Thiago", "Snap", "Roundabout", and "Return To The Nightsong". LP, Vinyl record album

New ImaginationsImaginations ... LP
20th Century, Mid 70s. Very Good- ... $14.99
An excellent group soul from Chicago – and no wonder, since The Imaginations were previously Brighter Side Of Darknes, a sublime falsetto harmony group who had a huge hit in 1972 with "Love Jones". This record's very much in the vein of that song – but also features a maturation of the group's emotions and harmonies, taking them into a mix of sophisticated love songs and righteous society tunes that puts them with the best of the early 70s harmonicists from the east coast. The album was produced in Chicago by Star-Vue Productions, and it's got arrangements by Tom Tom and Benjamin Wright that are very much in the mode of late Cadet and Brunswick work. Titles include "Because I Love You", "Ballad Of Matheia", "Love Diet", "God Bless You Love", "Me, Myself & I", "Searchin'", and "Talk About the World". LP, Vinyl record album

New ImpressionsCheck Out Your Mind ... LP
Curtom, 1970. Very Good- ... $11.99
Righteous late 60s soul from The Impressions – the group's last album with Curtis Mayfield in the lineup! The sound here follows heavily from the Young Mods and This Is My Country years – a heavier take on the trio's soul stylings than their work over at ABC in the mid 60s – pushed into more heady political territory, yet still informed with an unmatched approach to harmony soul. Arrangements are by Riley Hampton and Gary Slabo, and they've got some great psychedelic soul touches that are a perfect precursor to Curtis Mayfield's solo work to follow on Curtom – a great groove that steps out wonderfully with an undercurrent of funk in the mix. Henry Gibson plays some great congas on the set – again hinting at the Mayfield sound to come – and titles include "Check Out Your Mind", "Madam Mary", "We Must Be In Love", "Only You", "Say You Love Me", "Turn On To Me", "Do You Wanna Win", and "You're Really Something Sadie". LP, Vinyl record album

Harold Johnson SextetHouse On Elm Street (Revue pressing) ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good ... $33.99
A killer album! The Harold Johnson Sextet were an incredible little LA soul jazz combo during the late 60s. Johnson was a very soulful pianist, and he had a heavy soul style that was similar to Ramsey Lewis' Cadet work – but which was also tinged with the lyricism of Horace Silver, and the emerging modal sound of Stanley Cowell. This first session by the group was originally issued on a small label, became a local hit, and was picked up by the Revue label for national distribution. It's got an incredible sound, and is very very catchy. The band features Johnson's piano in a very strong lead – plus flute, alto, and tenor. Billy Jackson plays a hard rolling conga behind the whole thing – and tracks include "House On Elm Street", "Watts '67", "Something Mellow", and "Yeah Uh Huh". A great one – and a record you won't find easily again! LP, Vinyl record album

Philly Joe JonesBlues For Dracula ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
Arguably the best album that Philly Joe Jones ever cut as a leader – and a straight ahead set of soulful hardbop tunes played in the company of an excellent group! The set fits with with some of the super-hip soul jazz sides coming out on Riverside and Jazzland during the late 50s – and the sextet on the album features players who also made their mark for the label, like Julian Priester, Johnny Griffin, and Nat Adderley, who play here with Tommy Flanagan and Jimmy Garrison. The interplay between Garrison and Jones is worth the price of the record alone, and Jimmy pushes Philly into territory that's a bit more sophisticated than his usual groove. Tracks are all pretty long – and titles include "Blues For Dracula", "Ow", "Tune Up", and "Fiesta", written by the great Cal Massey! LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford JordanRemembering Me Me ... LP
Muse, 1977. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Pretty darn hip stuff from Clifford – in that righteous soul jazz mode that he was using at Strata East, although perhaps a bit less focused than on those records. The record's actually got vocals on a number of tracks – scatting in a kind of hip Bill Lee sort of approach, singing righteous 70s lyrics that sound a bit dated, but which also have a real appeal to fans of hipper soul jazz, sort of in the mode of work by Billy Gault or Joe Lee Wilson. Players include Chris Anderson on piano and electric piano, Roy Burrowes on trumpet, Wilbur Ware on bass – and vocalists Boo Boo Mark, Donna Jordan, and Terri Plair. Titles include "Me Me", "Ole Funny Columbine", "Mama's Little Boy Thinks He's A Man", "Powerful Paul Robeson", and "It's Time". LP, Vinyl record album

New Valerie JunePushin' Against A Stone ... CD
Concord, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A really compelling mix of folk roots and deeper soul – served up here by one of the most unique artists we've heard in years! Valerie June is really carving out some unique territory here – singing and playing guitar at a level that feels rooted in Appalachia, but also sometimes stepping into some headier sounds that are more soul or funk-based as well – a really surprising brew that comes off surprisingly well throughout! Valerie's getting production help from Kevin Augunas and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys – both of whom play and sing on the record too – along with some guest organ work from Booker T. Titles include "Wanna Be On Your Mind", "Pushin Against A Stone", "Trials Troubles Tribulations", "Twined & Twisted", "The Hour", "Somebody To Love", and "Workin Woman Blues". CD

New Junior KellyPiece Of The Pie ... CD

Solid roots from Junior Kelly! Piece OF The Pie finds Junior Kelly in as fine of form as we've heard him years – delivered with a timeless sound that's perfectly comfortable in a contemporary setting – neither catering to contemporary trends or bowing to overt throwback traditionalism. His voice is full of soulful spiritiual resonance, too. Very nice stuff! Includes "Rock, Rock, Rock", "Creator", "Piece Of The Pie", "Heads Up", "Been There", "Save Your Soul", "Fly Away", "Bun Babylon", "Lots Of Herbs", "Still A Hold Faith", "Win Or Lose", "Go Round Dem" with Lion Face, "Dem A Wonder" with Smiley, "Don't Say No" with Mark Wonder and more.

It's nearing the end of the 70s and Eddie's still goin' strong, with another LP of sophisticated soul. By this point, Eddie's already shown he can groove smooth and mellow, or pop along nicely with a dancefloor oriented groove, which he manages to do in stride here, his light voice meshing nicely with crisp arrangements. With "The Best Of Strangers Now", "Don't Underestimate The Power Of Love", "Ain't No Smoke Without A Fire" and "Maybe I'm A Fool To Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Barney KesselMusic To Listen To Barney Kessel By – Barney Kessel Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $14.99
A classic Kessel album for Contemporary – one that features Barney's guitar in a set of slightly larger backings, all arranged by Barney himself! The approach is a bit different from some of Kessel's more stripped-down albums of the time – as Barney works with instrumentation that includes a fair bit of flute and clarinet work by players who include Buddy Collette, Jules Jacob, George Smith, and Ted Nash – all supported by straighter piano, bass, and drum rhythms. The mix of guitar and reeds is quite nice, and makes for a warmly lyrical sound on the set – a sound that Kessel is perfectly suited for – nicely sophisticated without getting too coldly academic. Titles include "Blues For A Playboy", "Cheerful Little Earful", "My Reverie", "Carioca", "Indian Summer", "Fascinating Rhythm", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrzej KorzynskiPossession ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $22.99
Amazing sounds from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – penned for a legendary horror film from the early 80s! The movie goes way beyond typical grit and gore – with a surreal bent that's made it the stuff of much discussion over the years – and Korzynski's music definitely lives up to the spirit of the images on the screen – mixing 80s electronics with offbeat strings, odd percussion, and other compelling bits – often used in very short songs that shift often throughout the course of the album – easily making the record one of the most playful we've ever heard from Finders Keepers – yet also one of the darkest too! A few sweet keyboard melodies offset some of the spookiness in a nice way – and titles include "Helen Has Green Eyes", "Opetanie 1", "The Night The Screaming Stops", "Blue Ford B AZ6", "Heinrick's Demise", "Mark Looks In The Fridge", "What Is It", and "Closely Observed Anna".

One of the best recent grooves we've heard from Kraftwerk – a snapping little number that really takes us back to the Tour De France days! As usual, the group handles their sound the best – and our favorite here is probably the "Kling Klang Dynamix" – although we can say that Francois K puts in some nicely spare beats that groove things up, while still keeping the feel of the original!

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".

The tracks include a number of standards, plus a few originals – and titles include "Porquoi Partir", "J'Ai Compris Trop Tard", "C'Est Bon Quand On S'Aime", "La Nuit", "Dans Un Autre Monde", and "Loin".

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

New Maysa LeakAll My Life ... LP
Expansion (UK), 2000. Very Good ... $7.99
A great modern soul album – and the new release from Maysa Leak, the lovely voice behind some of Incognito's best albums! If you know Incognito, you can guess the sound here – but the overall approach is different, with a lot more emphasis on soul sounds and jazzy arrangements, all produced by Bluey, in a manner that's great for Maysa's rich soulful voice! The record follows perfectly in the soulful tradition set by some of London's best singers of the past decade, but it also moves to a whole new level, with nice jazzy touches that remind us of some of the recent American underground soul work, like stuff by N'Dambe or Laurnea. Titles include "Blue Light", "Mirrors", "Hooked On Your Love", "Shadows & Light", "Got To Be Strong", and "Earth Child". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel LegrandYoung Girls Of Rochefort (US pressing) ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $19.99
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".

New John LewisEuropean Windows ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $1.99
A bit of an obscure session, but the first of John Lewis' works for a larger jazz orchestra – recorded with a lineup that includes larger strings and woodwinds next to rhythm backing by Percy Heath and Connie Kay of the MJQ! The tracks are all longer originals arranged by Lewis – except for one track orchestrated by Gunther Schuller – and the album's especially noteworthy for its extensive solo work by British baritone saxophonist Ronnie Ross, a player who's been one of the great under-discovered sides of the European scene of the late 50s and 1960s for years – and who really steps out here in some wonderful moments. The only other major soloist on the set is flute player Gerry Weinkopf – who provides a nice lighter tone next to that of Ross. Titles include "Midsommer", "The Queen's Fancy", "Cortege", "Three Windows", "England's Carol", and "Two Degrees East Three Degrees West". LP, Vinyl record album

Lord Newborn & The Magic SkullsLord Newborn & The Magic Skulls ... CD
Ubiquity, 2009. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
Massively messed-up grooves – and a rare one-off collaboration between Money Mark, Shawn Lee, and Tommy Guerrero – all artists we've come to love for their own funky music over the years! The sound here is as wild as you'd expect from the cover – a really trippy approach to funk – spun out with the same heavy grooves you'd get on some of Lee's funk sets for Ubiquity, mixed with the offbeat production modes that Money Mark brought to his early Mo Wax recordings! There's a definite dose of psych on most tracks – showing the increasing influence from this end of the spectrum on 21st Century beatheads – and the fuzzier edges make for a nice change amidst Lee's usually cleaner grooves. Some vocals appear on the album, but often buried down deeply in the instrumental mix – leaving most of the album's charm to come from fuzzy guitar, trippy keyboards, and heavy beats! Titles include "Dime Bag Conspiracy", "Rainy Day Dog", "Astro Blue", "Disco Loco", "Ringa Ding Ding Ding", "LIVE", "Revenge Of The Fillet O Fish", and "Crazy Apartment". CD

Louvin BrothersSatan Is Real/Handpicked Songs 1955 to 1962 ... CD
Capitol/Light In The Attic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
The soul saving, Satan deterring classic by The Louvin Brothers – plus the excellent Handpicked Songs compilation of Louvin tracks lovingly selected by an eclectic group of indebted artists – in this great 2CD set from Light In The Attic! Satan Is Real is a fantastic record of country harmony spirituals, cut by the legendary Ira and Charlie Louvin, during the height of their years at Capitol. The record's a treasure all the way through – from great cuts like "Satan is Real", "The Drunkard's Room", and "Dying From Home, And Lost" – to the groovy cover that has the Louvins standing next to a flaming pile of garbage with a statue of Satan! The real deal! Handpicked Songs is amazing music from the greatest chapter of the legendary Louvin Brothers – the kind of work that's made them a legend for generations! The set features Louvin classics chosen by a reverent group of singers and songwriters that really run the gamut – Dolly Parton, Beck, Kris Kristofferson, Chris Hilman, Emmylou Harris, Will Oldham, Zooey Deschanel, The Black Angels, Mark Lanegan, M Ward, and Jim James – but all artists who have been undeniably influenced by Ira and Charlie Louvin, and their way of melding melancholy harmonies into something that goes way beyond everyday country music! The packaging is great – very much up to the Light In The Attic standard – and titles include "Almost Persuaded", "My Baby's Gone", "I See A Bridge", "Knoxville Girl", "Great Atomic Power", and "Alabama".

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".

A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great arrangements that get a lot more complicated than before – and which bring in some great keyboard and percussion bits. Sivuca makes a wonderful appearance on 2 tracks – using that blend of voice and accordion that sounds so great – and the whole record's got a depth and sense of soul that you'd never guess from it's silly title and cover! Titles include "Colonial Man", "Song For Brazil", "Vasco Da Gama", "For The Love Of You", "Witch Doctor", and "Cecil Rhodes". LP, Vinyl record album

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

New Stephanie McKay (aka McKay)Stephanie McKay EP ... CD
Astralwerks, 2006. Used ... $1.99
A long-overdue introduction of Brooklyn singer Stephanie McKay to the US market – especially given that her debut album was issued in the UK a few years ago! This 5 track EP is a bit of a teaser to Stephanie's projected full length US set – and it features 3 new tracks that are all totally great, plus 2 more numbers from her 2003 release on Go Beat in the UK. As before, the sound is proud, loud, and plenty soulful – nicely chunky contemporary work that steers itself away from mainstream cliche, with shared writing credits from Thaddeus Smith III (aka Pismo) on all the new tracks. Titles include "Tell It Like It Is", "Money", "Tell It Like It Is (DJ Spinna rmx)", "Rising Tide", and "Take Me Over". CD

Medeski's funky keyboards are firmly in place, and the group's got the usual tight rhythm groove, but the lineup's also expanded with some additional horn players, and some guest guitar by Mark Ribot. The album includes a great version of Coltrane's "Syeeda's Song Flute", plus originals like "Worms", "Sand", "Where's Sly?", and "Wiggly's Way". CD

TK/Drive, 1978. Near Mint- ... $48.99
Cool compressed sounds from Miami – a group who are still plenty funky on this rare third album, but one who've also found a great way to serve up their groove as well! The combo's even sharper on the rhythms than ever before – and have a style that's a bit like that key evolution Pleasure took after their first few records for Fantasy – a funk band really going for a cut-above, and finding a way to fuse all their already-great individual components into a rich new whole! Willie Clarke produced, and the album's easily one of his sharpest Miami sets of the time – and is nicely free of the commercial qualities of other big TK Records of the period. Titles include "Eye For An Eye", "Broken Down Man", "Let Me See Some Knees Please", "Strange", and "I've Been Loving You Too Long". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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 Meli'sa MorganGood Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com, 1987. Used ... $8.99
Meli'sa Morgan doing what she does best – pushing the envelope for mainstream soul, but often in really subtle ways! There's a majestic sweep to these tunes that's a real surprise – a class and care that takes Morgan's music past some of her poppier contemporaries, and which always brings a little something extra to the table – maybe a bit of jazz inflection to the vocals at points, or some deeper lines that really help send a lyric home! And although the production is relatively commercial, the end result is a lot richer, too – thanks to work in the studio from Kashif and Lesette Wilson – both of whom leave their mark on the set. Titles include "Love Changes", a duet with Kashif – plus "You're All I Got", "Good Love", "If You Can Do It I Can Too", "Here Comes The Night", "Just For Your Touch", and "I Still Think About You". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "If You Can Do It I Can Too (club house mix)", "If You Can Do It I Can Too (dub)", "Good Love (ext rmx)", "Good Love (rmx edit)", "Here Comes The Night (special club opus)", and "Here Comes The Night (special club opus 12")".

Mr ChopSwitched On (LP style sleeve) ... CD
Traffic, 2011. Used ... $5.99
Switched On funk from Mr Chop! Here's an homage to the innovative Moog-based LPs of the late 60s and early 70s – though the the great UK analog studio wiz Mr Chop is also doing it hard and heavy – it's not a light, airy and bubbly keyboard groove experience – this is spacey, fuzzy avant funk at its modern finest! Produced and engineered by Mr Chop and the players are like-minded geniuses – Malcolm Catto on drums, Coz Litter on bass, guitar, vocoder and more, Glyn Williams on clavinet, Moog, Hammond and Rhodes, Johnny Pop on Hammond organ and Mark Brunley on modular synth. The set includes some covers of funk and avant rock like you've never heard them before, and it's great all the way. Titles include "Hung-Up", "Root Down (And Get It)", "Breakthrough", "Givin Up Food For Funk", "Blow Your Head", "Deep Gully", "Greedy G", "Happy Birthday", "Vitamin C" and "Cortex". CD

Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... $6.99
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".

Seminal work from bassist Teruo Nakamura – one of the few Japanese fusion players of the 70s to make a bit of a splash over on this side of the Pacific, thanks to wickedly soulful work like this! Teruo's getting some great help here from a handful of American players – including the legendary Harry Whitaker on electric piano, fresh from some key work with Roy Ayers – plus Carter Jefferson on tenor and soprano sax, and Mark Gray on additional keys. In addition, album's filled with guest appearances that range from Herbie Hancock to Lani Groves to Art Webb, and others – and the groove is a mixture of spacey funky and smoother, more soul-oriented tracks – sometimes with bigger backings, in kind of a Kudu Records sort of mode. Lots of nice numbers – including "Wiggle Worm", "Mr Cherry & Mr T", "Sunrise In Africa", "Mescalito", and "Firefly". LP, Vinyl record album

Jovino Santos NetoCurrent ... CD
Adventure Music, 2011. Used ... $6.99
We're not sure if the "current" in the title applies to the fact that Jovino Santos Neto is playing a bit of Fender Rhodes this time around – but we certainly like that change, and it helps give the record an even richer feel than some of his previous albums! As before, there's a mix of Brazilian and jazz modes at play here – some of the balance between complicated arrangements and sensitive swing that Brazilian jazz has always had since the 60s, but inflected with qualities that also mark the American scene in which the album was recorded. Jovino also plays acoustic piano, flute, and melodica – and other players include Harvey Wainapel on saxes and clarinet and Jeff Busch on percussion – plus Ben Thomas, who brings in nice guest vibes on a few tracks. Titles include "Corrente", "Vivendo No Presente", "Pra Casa", "Zagia", "Sea & Sky", and "A Fonte". CD

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.

RCA, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
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

Kritzerland, 1955. New Copy ... $19.99
Two famous 50s soundtracks from Alfred Newman – each of them a different illustration of key aspects of his style! Love Is A Many Splendored Thing is filled with the sort of lush strings and rich emotion that Newman could do so well – heard to great effect on the album's famous main theme, but then changed up nicely with some surprising exotic touches that echo the Hong Kong setting of the film – little bits of percussion and woodwinds that trade back and forth nicely between some of the more anglo-oriented dramatic moments. The set's a great example of Hollywood scoring at its best during the 50s – and titles include "Third Uncle", "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "The Moon Festival", "Destiny", "Viendras Tu Ce Soir", and "Mark's Letter". The Seven Year Itch is lush, but in a sensuous way – mixing the comedy of the narrative with scenes that showcase the sexiness of Marilyn Monroe! Strings are pretty full on most numbers, but occasionally inflected with more playful bits – and titles include "Main Title/Indian Music", "Finale", "All About Love", and "The Girl Upstairs". CD

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!

The other group members are as sharp as the leader – and include Mark Turner on alto, Godwin Louis on alto, Mike Moreno on guitar, Edward Perez on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums – all musicians who help make the record one of the most solid, well-conceived records on Steeplechase in a while.

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

The long-overdue issue of the only recording by this lost Chicago/Swedish project – a massive lineup of young avant players from the start of the millenium – similar in construction to the Peter Brotzman Tentet, but working here with a very different sound! The group came together over the space of months, on both sides of the Atlantic – and really took their time to develop the album's two long compositions by Ken Vandermark and Fredrik Ljungkvist – working in amazing shades and tones that really reflect the individual personalities and strengths of the 16-member lineup. Each track spins out towards the half-hour mark – which allows lots of space for sounds from Mats Gustafsson on tenor, Ken Vandermark on clarinet and tenor, Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor, clarinet, and baritone (were these guys having a competition?) – plus Guillermo Gregorio on alto and clarinet, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Per Ake Holmlander on tuba, Joe Morris and David Stackenas on guitars, Sten Sandell on piano, Jim Baker on piano and Arp, Fred Lonberg-Holm on cello, Kent Kessler and Johan Berthling on basses, Michale Zerang and Raymond Strid on drums and percussion, and Kjell Nordeson on drums, percussion, and vibes. There's a heck of a lot going on here – and titles include "Codeine Picasso" and "In This Very Room" – each of which have a mix of composition and improvisation that's not unlike some of the projects directed by Lonberg-Holm around the same time.

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

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.

Factory (UK), 1984. Very Good ... $9.99
Latinized crossover club from the enigmatic Quando Quango – one of our favorite groups from the Factory Records import years!

New David RaksinLaura (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Kritzerland, 1944. New Copy ... $19.99
Without a doubt, one of the most famous scores to come out of Hollywood in the 40s – David Raksin's enduring soundtrack for Laura – and it's as beautiful now as ever! The theme was recorded time and time again over the next few decades – in vocal and instrumental versions, by hundreds of artists. The entire score is wonderful though – and mighty influential, too! It's lush and lovely, with noirish touches – seemingly serving as a template for so many dramatic scores to come! Includes the main title theme plus "The Phonograph", "The Cafe", "Waldo Walks Away", "Mark", "Apartment House", "The Party", "Laura Leaves", "Night" and more. This great CD version on Kritzerland includes full original score – plus the a bonus test demo fand also presents the full "Laura Suite – Theme And Variations" by Raksin, conducted by Alfred Newman, and runs over 27 minutes long!

Sue RaneySongs For A Raney Day ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good- ... $24.99
A fantastic album by this obscure vocalist – one of the first in a great run of work recorded by Sue Raney on the west coast scene! This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller modes on her later records. The album's got surprisingly understated arrangements by Billy May that have a nice jazzy edge – and Raney's vocals have all the wistful qualities you might guess from the title and cover! Titles include "A Blossom Fell", "Impossible", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", "My Prayer", "Wanna Laugh?", "Rain On The Roof", and "Blue Tears". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear, masking tape on the top and bottom seams, some splitting on the spine, a peeled mark and sticker remnants on the front, and some stains on the back.)

Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live! (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Very Good ... $0.99
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the best singers of his genre at the time, and which comes out especially strong in the album's upbeat monologues, which are often delivered by Lou with musical accompaniment, then leap strongly into the lyrics of a tune. Backing is by a small jazzy combo that includes Herb Ellis on guitar and the great rhythm team of Jimmy Bond on bass and Earl Palmer on drums – both of whom bring a nice little groove to most of the album's numbers. Titles include "Street Corner Hustler's Blues/World Of Trouble", "Southside Blues/Tobacco Road", "The Shadow of Your Smile", "In The Evening When The Sun Goes Down", "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good", and "The Girl From Ipanema". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear, some stains, a bit of sticker residue, a partially split bottom seam, and some marker on the back. Label has a light mark from sticker removal and a bit of marker.)

Lou RawlsThat's Lou – The Moving & Exciting Songs Of Mr Lou Rawls ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $0.99
Great work from Lou Rawls on Capitol – one of his fine fine albums produced by David Axelrod, with that snapping tight groove that works amazingly well with his vocals! The arrangements are super-tight – jazzy backings that have Lou shifting between that monologue style that he virtually patented at the time, and straighter swinging tunes that have a heck of a lot of soul. Titles include "Problems", "When Love Goes Wrong", "Ear Bender Monologue", "What Are You Doing About Today", "The Love That I Give",a nd "Hard To Get Thing Called Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear, aging, a peeled mark from sticker removal, a split bottom seam with pieces of tape, some splitting on the other seams, and a name in pen on the back.)

Dewey RedmanMusics ... LP
Galaxy, 1979. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A beautifully soulful record from the great Dewey Redman – straighter than some of his 70s recordings, but in a really great way that shows that Dewey could still be quite compelling in another sort of way! The sound of his tenor here is wonderful – blowing with a rich, full, imaginative sound that never lets up – save for the few points when Redman picks up another instrument – such as musette on one track, and harp on another – both of which he uses to shade things in with slight spiritual tones. A few tracks get a bit more outside, but these moments soon return to the fold of the soulful tenor – and the group features Fred Simmons on piano, Mark Helias on bass, and Eddie Moore on drums, percussion, and saw. Titles include "Alone Again Naturally", "Need To Be", "Unknown Tongue", "One Beautiful Day", and "Daystar Nightlight". 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Incredible pressing – with an amazing 3D lenticular cover!)

Minnie RipertonPerfect Angel ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good- ... $5.99
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of mellow compressed LA styles and slicker funkier numbers that do the same thing for her Chicago-trained vocals that Rufus' backing did for that of Chaka Khan. Of course, it helps that she's got some superbly sensitive writing and arranging help by husband Richard Rudolph – and Stevie Wonder's definitely lurking in the background, too. Includes Minnie's huge crossover hit "Loving You", a perfect showcase for her beautiful 5 octave voice, plus the tracks "Our Lives", "Every Time He Comes Around", "Perfect Angel", and "Reasons". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has light wear and some stains. Label has a mark from sticker removal.)

Diana Ross & The Supremes with The TemptationsDiana Ross & The Supremes Join The Temptations ... LP
Motown, 1968. Very Good ... $4.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some marker on front. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Then".)
