New 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

Original Harmony Ridge Creek DippersOriginal Harmony Ridge Creek Dippers (includes CD) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Nero's Neptune, 1997. New Copy .... $14.99
A record with a reputation as one of the great undiscovered folk rock albums of the past couple decades – the rawly emotional, sparely beautiful debut of the Original Harmony Ridge Creek Dippers – and it lives up! The Creek Dippers are led by onetime Jayhawk Mark Olsen and his then wife, rustic chanteuse Victoria Williams – rounded out by Mike Russell. Olsen's never been shy about wearing influences on his sleeve – a trait integral to his charms if you're asking us – singing lead here in a Gram Parsons as troubadour mode with Victoria providing ghost like harmonies while acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle and drums back the the voices. Really lovely and affecting stuff, on par with the best and better known work of their careers! Titles include "Flowering Trees", "When School Begins", "Run With The Ponies", "She Picks The Violets", "Eyes Are The Window", "Jericho" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(LP comes with the CD, too!)

Pazant BrothersBrothers Funk – Rare New York City Funk 1969 to 1975 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
Mindblowing funk from one of the greatest combos on the New York scene of the early 70s – Pazant Brothers Eddie & Al, heard here on a host of their greatest recordings! The package goes way past any other Pazant reissues we've seen – and features not only work from the group's famous Vanguard album, but way way more work from a host of early singles for the RCA, GWP, and Vigor labels! The 22 track package is overstuffed with horn-heavy funky grooves that mark the Pazants as one of the hottest things going at the time – snapping on the beat with a tightness learned from their old boss Pucho, but also a willingness to explore brassier grooves in a style that seems to be influenced from the New Orleans and Texas scenes of the late 60s. Producer/arranger Edward Bland had a good hand in much of this work – giving the tracks a gritty, nitty, Perception/Today kind of groove – and a few of the very best numbers on the record even bring in some wicked scratchy guitar into the mix! Includes early and later (Vanguard) versions of "Skunky Juice", "New Orleans", "Toe Jam", "Work Song", and "A Gritty Nitty" – plus "Chick A Boom", "Greasy Greens", "Fever", "Juicy Lucy", "Chicken Scratch", "Fly Vines", and "Back To Beaufort".

Art PepperRoadgame ... LP
Galaxy, 1982. Very Good .... $6.99
Great late work from Art Pepper – a relaxed, open-ended live date that really shows off Pepper's mature blowing from these crucial years! The group's grounded by a great rhythm section – George Cables on piano, David Williams on bass, and Carl Burnett on drums – opening up these long grooves that Pepper really takes over with strong work on alto sax, and a bit of clarinet on one track – an instrument he uses with surprising charm! Titles include "Roadgame", "Road Waltz", "When You're Smiling", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint- .... $4.99
Wilson's second set of "greatest hits" collected by Atlantic – and with some tasty later work that pushes past the obvious hits of earlier days! The set features 13 numbers in all, most with that hard southern feel that Wilson got while working with producers like Rick Hall, Tommy Cogbill, and Dave Crawford. Titles include "I'm A Midnight Mover", "A Man & A Half", "I'm In Love", "She's Lookin Good", "You Keep Me Hangin On", "Cole, Cooke, & Redding", "Hey Joe", and "I Found A True Love".

New PipelinePipeline ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2000. New Copy .... $12.99 15.99
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.

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

Columbia, 1970. Very Good+ .... $4.99
A conscious classic from the start of the 70s – a record that gave the US its huge title hit – which was one of the biggest mainstream songs to recognize the struggles of the Native American at a key political point. The rest of the record follows in very similar spirit – much headier than the group's pop music of the 60s – with fuzzy guitar from Freddy Weller, burning keyboards from Paul Revere, and some great lead vocals from Mark Lindsay. Titles include "Indian Reservation", "The Shape Of Things To Come", "Prince Of Peace", "Heaven Help Us All", "Take Me Home", "Come In You'll Get Pneumonia", and "The Turkey". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray & His Musical CourtCookie Crumbs – The Greatest Hits ... CD
Essential, Early 70s. New Copy .... $13.99 16.98
Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray & co. are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! Multi-instrumentalist Ray Fernandez got his start largely as a percussionist, and worked with titans like Mongo Santamaria and Bud Powell before fronting his own group. On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge! 22 tracks running well north of the hour mark: "Cookie Crumbs", "Soul Freedom", "El Alacarn", "El Bimbo", "Brazil", "Sunny", "Tu Mirar", "Chega Mais, "More More More", and tons more!

LJ's second album for Capitol – a nice batch of modern soul tracks with an equally warm soulful groove as his first for the label! Gene Dozier and L.J. produced most of the cuts on here, and although there might be a bit more DMX than you'd expect, the general groove is still pretty nice. Titles include "Lovin Man", "Love Me All Over", "Love Take 2", "Don't Let Nobody Hold You Down", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

RhymefestBlue Collar ... LP
Allido/J Records, 2005. Very Good+ 2LP .... $7.99
The (way too) long-awaited album from Chicago's Rhymefest – featuring standout production by the mighty No ID, Cool & Dre, Mark Ronson and others, plus a big hooky track from Just Blaze for good measure – and appearances by Kanye, Mike Payne, Mikkey & Bump J, Mario, and a goofy send off from the late ODB! We've been flying the flag for Rhymefest from his appearances on mixtapes, at one point literally BEGGING the world to pay attention, and we couldn't be happier that he's not only got a national platform w/Mark Ronson's Allido label, but he was actually allowed shine in his tried-and-true fashion (hence the title), rather than copping to a big star hip hop celebrity makeover. On top of that, any cat who a) rhymes over a Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings sample on his major label debut, and b) manages to make a Strokes sample sound funky (with a little help from Ronson) deserves the f***in' spotlight. Includes "Feel Free (Intro)" feat Q-Tip, "Dynomite (Going Postal)", the great single "Brand New" feat Kanye West, "Chicago-Rillas" feat Mikkey & Bump J, "Stick", "All Girls Cheat" feat Mario, "Sister" feat Mike Payne, "Bullet" feat Citizen Cope", "Build Me Up" feat ODB and more.

Salsoul OrchestraStreet Sense (2LP promo version) ... LP
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good- 2LP .... $4.99
Brillant work from the Salsoul Orchestra – some of their most sophisticated work ever, and right in line with a soulful orchestral style that runs back through the work of Barry White into the early experiments of the Soulful Strings! The album marks a shift for the group – now led by the mighty Tom Moulton, after the departure of Vince Montana – a new force who really takes the group in some great directions, and stretches out the tunes here even more than before – which makes for a lot more musical complexity as well! Thor Baldursson helps out on some of the arrangements, and the pair really work magic with the tight Philly lineup of the group – soaring out on great versions of two massive Richard Evans groovers – "Zambesi" and "Burning Spear", both killers that were originally performed by the Soulful Strings – plus the original numbers "212 North 12th", "Street Sense", and "Sun After The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Idan SanthausThere You Are ... CD
Posi tone, 2013. Used .... $6.99
Great arrangements and compositions here – not just from leader Idan Santhus, but also from a whole host of other artists as well – a good number of whom work here in the ensembles on the set! The approach is wonderful – large lineups of players, but handled with a style that's tight, yet laidback – really letting each individual solo voice get plenty of space – with some especially great work on flutes and saxes from David DeJesus, Jon Gordon, Matt Garrison, Mark Small, Dan Willis, and Ben Kono. The use of flute is especially strong on the set – and has a compressed quality that slides out beautifully amidst the larger charts – as does the piano by Roy Assaf and Deanna Witkowski, often subtle, but shading things in with a power that matches the horns. Titles include "There You Are", "Tempo Rarely", "Nothing Yet", "High Maintenance", "Change Of Season", "Purple & Yellow", and "A Place I Know". CD

Saheb SarbibAisha ... LP
Cadence, 1981. New Copy .... $10.99 13.98
A great reminder of the important contributions to jazz that Saheb Sarbib made back in the 80s – especially when he could cook up a richly collaborative session like this! The groove is relatively straight, but the players are nicely freewheeling – just what you'd expect when you've got a lineup that includes Ahmed Abdullah and Roy Campbell on trumpets, Jemeel Mondoc and Mark Whitecage on alto sax, Booker T and David Pate on tenor, Guilherme Franco on percussion, and even a bit of guest tenor from Frank Wright! Sarbib has this Mingus-like way of forging the whole ensemble together with tightness – yet letting the individual voices burst out beautifully too – and even though the record's got some slight electric bass, most of the best energy is acoustic. Titles include "New York Party", "Get In Line", "East 11th Street", "One For Lacy", and the great "Aisha" suite. LP, Vinyl record album

Archie SheppKwanza ... LP
Impulse, 1969/1974. Very Good+ Gatefold .... $33.99
A brilliant little album from Archie Shepp – material recorded on a variety of dates at the end of the 60s, but packaged together as an extremely soulful set in the mid 70s! There's a feel here that rivals some of the best moments of the Attica Blues years – a mix of spiritual soul jazz and bolder modern moments – reigned in nicely from the freer Shepp sound of a few years before, and given a really righteous focus by the addition of vocals on some tracks. Archie sings a bit himself, and one number features Leon Thomas singing with Tasha Thomas and Doris Troy – a very odd meeting in the studio! Players include Woody Shaw, Jimmy Owens, Dave Burrell, Grachan Moncur III, and Wally Richardson – and the tracks even get a bit funky at times! Titles include an excellent version of "New Africa", which was recorded later in Paris by Grachan Moncur III – plus "Back Back", "Spoo Pee Doo", "Slow Drag", and Cal Massey's "Bakai".

New Wayne ShorterIntroducing Wayne Shorter ... LP
Vee Jay, 1959. Very Good- .... $34.99
The birth of a genius! From the vantage point of the 21st century,Wayne Shorter hardly needs any introduction – but when he recorded this debut album in the late 50s, Shorter was just the new kid on the block – making a few important waves as the tenor star in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. The album wisely works off that fame, and pairs Shorter with co-Messenger Lee Morgan – in front line on the trumpet – but it's also got a slightly different groove too, thanks to a rhythm team that includes Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. The Kelly trio approach makes for a nice change from the Blakey mode – and Shorter more than follows suit by blowing some wonderfully well-crafted solos, and working in a more introspective soul mode – really pointing the way towards his later genius as a leader on Blue Note. Shorter also emerges as a heck of a great writer too – contributing 5 great original tracks to the set, titles that include "Blues A La Carte", "Harry's Last Stand", "Black Diamond", "Pug Nose", and "Down in The Depths".

Sly & The Family StoneFresh (limited deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic, 1973. Used .... $6.99
Sly's leaping into the air on the cover of this one – and for good reason too, given the overall groove of the set! The album's a bit more stripped-down and upbeat than the previous few – almost more of a return to the simple funky style of the first albums, but with a slightly more electric sound than before – especially in the keyboards, which almost slide into the mix here with a Stevie Wonder-like quality. The electricity bubbles and brews wonderfully at the bottom of the rhythms – charging things up a bit, but still hanging back with a super-cool, laidback quality that few other groups could muster! There's a great sense of balance here that's brilliant – and which makes the album one of Sly's undisputed masterpieces from the Columbia years. Titles include the incredible "If You Want Me To Stay" – one of our favorite Sly Stone cuts ever – plus "Keep on Dancin", "Babies Making Babies", "Que Sera Sera", "If It Were Left Up To Me", "In Time", and "Let Me Have It All". CD's got 5 bonus tracks too – including alternate mixes of "Frisky", "Skin I'm In", "Keep On Dancin", "Babies Makin Babies", and "Let Me Have It All". CD

Maybe the deepest book we've ever read on the life and music of James Brown – and certainly one to really get past the monolithic moments, and really serve up the full details of The Godfather at work! There's a surprising amount of research that went into the project – way more than some of those star bios on Brown that were issued years back – and RJ Smith definitely digs James from the same perspective that we do, and really gets at the important forces that helped shape the sound of his music, and its exposure to the world at large! 455 pages, with some black and white images, hardcover.

A surprisingly nice record by the group who scored big in the late 60s with "Expressway to Your Heart" – and who continued to be one of the best blue eyed soul acts working on the east coast! This album's the group's second, done for Gamble & Huff at Philly International – and it's actually an even better record than the first, bubbling over with a warm mainstream soul style that's produced to perfection with lots of great touches. The songs are incredibly strong, and the instrumentation and vocals come off so well that you'll have yourself forgetting that these guys were essentially a rock group with a very soulful approach! Titles include "What it Takes", "City Of Brotherly Love", "Virgin Girl", "Over My Head", and "Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Grant StewartLive At Smalls ... CD

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

Dexter StorySeasons ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. New Copy .... $14.99
A beautiful project from the contemporary underground scene in LA – a record that shares lots of energy and musicians with recordings by Build An Ark and Life Force Trio! Dexter Story's the main force behind the record, but the set's a strongly collaborative effort – and features keyboards from Mark De Clive-Lowe, flute from Derf Reklaw, strings from Mighel Atwood-Ferguson, vocals from Dwight Trible, and key studio work from Carlos Nino! Story's vocals and overall conception are wonderful – soaring and soulful, with some slight cosmic touches that give the record a bit more crackle than related projects – a sound that's still steeped in spiritual jazz elements, yet which also really opens up as the set rolls on. There's a wonderful sense of variety to the tracks – due to the shifting lineup – but the overall feel is still very cohesive, and an amazing demonstration of Story's bold musical vision. Titles include "Seasons", "Into The Hour", "Love Force Trio (part 1)", "Underway", "Water Bearer", "Paddle Boat", "Bloop Drip", "Gyre Song", "As Is", "God Sun", and "Suijin". CD

A Fuego Vivo is a live septet set with the latin vibes master out front of Mark Levine on keys, the great percussionist Panco Sanchez on congas, and Gary Foster on alto and flute. It's a pretty atypically frenetic set for such a late date – with wonderfully tight, yet still quite jamming takes on "Serenita", "Ponco Con Dos Amigos", "Mindanao", "Tesoro", "Santo Domingo", "Naima" and "The Continental".

Cal Tjader & Eddie PalmieriEl Sonido Nuevo ... LP
Verve, 1966. Near Mint- .... $26.99
A classic collaboration between vibist Cal Tjader and Latin pianist Eddie Palmieri – a really wonderful album that bridges two different worlds of music in the 60s! Cal had always had something of a Latin bent to his music, even working for Fantasy in San Francisco a decade before – but here, teamed up with Eddie Palmieri, his music gets a great New York infusion – and one that's even a bit more contemporary than some of Tjader's previous 60s Latin efforts. Eddie's sharp-edged piano is totally great – ringing out with some especially bold tones – and other players on the set include Julian Priester and Mark Weinstein on trombones, Ismael Quintana on percussion, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, and George Castro on flute. Arrangements are by Eddie and Claus Ogerman – and titles include "Los Jibaros", "Ritmo Uni", "Picadillo", "Unidos", "El Sonido Nuevo", and "Guajira En Azul". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero UmilianiJerry Land – Cacciatore Di Spie ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy .... $16.99
A driving 60s spy soundtrack from Piero Umiliani – and a perfect bridge between his earlier jazz work and his groovier styles to come! The album's almost in a crime jazz mode – ala American work of a few years before – but there's also some sweet touches that definitely mark it as the work of the maestro, including some cool bossa elements, and tenser moments that definitely resonate strongly with the growing strengths of the Italian soundtrack scene in the mid 60s. Most tracks are relatively short, and slide together seductively – and the CD features 19 numbers from the film, with notes in English and Italian. CD

The set's like other American sides by the great Cuban pianist – a mixture of his older roots with newer inflections, played by a small combo that features piano, bass, drums, and congas – plus some guest alto, tenor, flute, and cello on selected tracks. Titles include "Solar", "La Comparsa", "Sin Clave Pero Con Swing", "Nanu", and "Los Guiros". CD

Scott WalkerClimate Of Hunter ... CD
Virgin (UK), 1984. New Copy .... $12.99
A key slice of Scott Walker genius – and his only recording from the 80s, cut on the heels of a re-discovery of his older music, but a far step ahead than anything Walker had done before! Climate Of Hunter is far darker than the famous Philips albums – and carries with it echoes of his last few tunes with the re-formed Walker Brothers in the late 70s – a bleaker look at life than ever before, but one that's still touched with the sense of poetry that Scott always brought to his work, and sung in that godlike voice we love so much! Instrumentation carries a definite feel of the time – with some echoes of British post-punk production, especially in the way the drums and guitar are recorded. Yet there's also a timeless quality to the album here too – and each year past its release settles it more warmly into the classic and better-known Scott Walker catalog. Surprising guest appearances on the set include Evan Parker, Ray Russell, Mark Isham, and even Billy Ocean – and titles include "Rawhide", "Dealer", "Track 3", "Sleepwalkers Woman", "Track 5", and "Track 7".

One of those great 70s records that really reminds us that, way past Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick's a heck of a great soul singer! The album's a bit more polished than some of her other post-Scepter efforts from the decade – yet still comes off quite well, with Dionne really stretching out vocally – and bringing a lot more to the table than might be expected. There's a few uptempo cuts that are a bit off the mark, but Warwick really shines on the mellow and midtempo numbers. Titles include "Who What When Where Why", "All The Time", "In Your Eyes", "Feeling Old Feelings", "Deja Vu", "I'll Never Love This Way Again", and "After You". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Wheeler/Norma WinstoneMirrors (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 2013. New Copy .... $28.99
A beautiful contemporary project from these two British jazz legends – one that definitely lives up to all their genius from earlier years – while finding a whole new level of expression! The album was done in collaboration with the London Vocal Project – a large group who are used here in a manner that's similar to some of the Donald Byrd "with voices" albums on Blue Note, or some of the Max Roach choral projects of the 60s. Winstone comes forth as the key soloist on some tracks – singing lyrics with this amazing quality that hasn't dimmed at all, with all the darkness we've always loved in her approach – and on other numbers the full chorus rises with the rhythms, propelling things forward alongside Wheeler's lines on flugelhorn – and the work of Mark Lockheart on saxes and Nikki Iles on piano. A stone classic, and a real surprise – with tracks that include "Black March", "The Hat", "The Broken Heart", "Breughel", and "The Lover Mourns". LP, Vinyl record album

The set's got a good electric vibe, with a production style that differs from most other Impulse recordings, and which sounds more like it belongs on a Roy Ayers recording from the time. White's violin is fairly restrained, and used more for rhythm than for out soloing. Cuts include "Father Music, Mother Dance", "Commin' From", and "Water Children.

As usual, Teddy's got a completely unique touch on the keys of the piano – fluid and warm, yet never in a sleepy sort of way – always creatively picking out just the right path through a melody, one that hangs onto the tune, yet still lets Wilson leave plenty of his own mark on the songs as well. Titles include "Smile", "I Got Rhythm", "Stars Fell On Alabama", "Savoy", "Say It Isn't So", "All Of Me", "Blues For Daryl", and "You're Driving Me Crazy". CD

An incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than before! The instrumentation on here is really mindblowing – almost at a Motown level, with isolated instruments really crackling out from the fuller backings – all set to rhythms that snap and bounce, and are almost a bit funky at times. Credit is definitely due to producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi – but Amy's vocals are really tremendous too – classic, but really personal and fresh! Titles include "Rehab", "Just Friends", "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", "He Can Only Hold Her", "Some Unholy War", and "Me & Mr Jones". CD

Way more than just another Blue Note compilation – as the set features a big number of cool under-exposed gems from the Blue Note scene overseas – including some excellent bits from the label in Japan and Italy! The set's a great sprinkling of gems from more recent years that illustrate the continuing influence of the classic years of the legendary label – all cuts that are remakes of older Blue Note songs from the 50s and 60s, but served up here in fresh versions with a great sense of variety. There's also a few numbers that show the recent EMI/Universal merger – which brought even more great artists into the Blue Note fold. Titles include "Summertime" by Soil & Pimp sessions with Jose James, "Ghana" by Nicola Conte with Gregory Porter, "Senor Blues" by David Sanborn, "Footprints" by Terence Blanchard, "Little B's Poem" by Akiko, "Maiden Voyage/Everything In Its Right Place" by Robert Glasper, "Night In Tunisia" by Toshio Matsura with Joes James, "Afrodisia" by Quasimode, "Adams Apple" by High Five, "Us Three" by Junko Onishi, "Un Poco Loco" by Jacky Terrasson with Bob Belden, "Blue Bossa" by Chick Corea, "Speak Like A Child" by Christian McBride with Nicholas Payton & Mark Whitfield, "Cleopatra's Dream" by Chihiro Yamanaka, and "Recado Bossa Nova" by Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

VariousComplete Norman Granz Jam Sessions (5 CD Box Set) ... CD
Verve, Early/Mid 50s. Used 5CD .... $43.99
An incredible document of a key genre in 50s jazz on record – the jam session tradition, recorded beautifully for Verve records by the legendary Norman Granz! The idea of a jam session was nothing new at the time, of course, but it was mostly a live phenomenon – known to players from concerts and club dates, or presented on vinyl by Granz, in his celebrated Jazz At The Philharmonic sessions. These dates mark a move into the studio by Granz – one that captures the same sort of energy and unique pairings of musicians that went down in the live sessions, with the added benefit of studio technology to make the work sound even clearer, and more intimate. The 5CD set brings together all 9 Jam Session albums – packaged beautifully in a slipcase with original album cover art, and a full 72 page booklet on the musicians, sessions, and titles included. Players include nearly everyone who might have worked for Verve in the 50s – Benny Carter, Charlie Parker, Johnny Hodges, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Buddy DeFranco, and countless others – and titles include "Jam Blues", "Funky Blues", "Apple Jam", "Blues For The Count", "Jamming For Clef", "Rose Room", "Blue Lou", and "Lullaby In Rhythm" – all in very long versions!

A killer collection of east coast soul from the 70s – work that originally appeared on a handful of different labels, but which was all put together by Robert Hosea Williams – an unsung producer working out of a small studio in Silver Springs – with an incredible ear for up-and-coming talent! The music here is totally deep and righteous throughout – the hippest of the indie label scene on the east coast – and work that really lives up to the progressive, righteous reference you'd get from the Red, Black, & Green in the title! There's plenty of group soul here – of a type that mixes older harmony modes with hipper 70s references – creating a really badass approach to soul music that's simply mindblowing – and way different than the mainstream variants that were hitting the charts at the time.

A good deal of these juke box treasures are from the mid 50s to early 60s – all of 'em ones that have been overlooked since way back in the day, having escaped the attention of all but the most devoted collectors for decades!

Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played big with the younger London crowd digging American music in the mid 60s – and also the kind of music you'd be likely to find blasting out of a backroom jukebox on the west side of Chicago! There's loads of rare single mixes of LP tracks on the set, and a number of smoking 45s from artists you might know better from more mainstream work – really hitting hard here, alongside a few special numbers from the indie underground too. Tracks are cool enough for old school hipsters – but appealing enough to bring in a new listener too – and as proof of that, we've given this one away for many years as a Christmas present. The collection features 25 tracks in all – non-stop pleasure throughout – with titles that include "Soul Shoutin" by Shirley Scott, "Tengo Tango" by Cannonball Adderley Sextet, "Whip It On Me" by Billy Hawks, "Yeh Yeh" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, "I'm Ready" by Otis Spann, "Mama Rufus" by Merced Blue Notes, "Theme From NYPD" by Johnny Hammond, "Step Out & Get It" by The Nomos, "Why Don't You Do Right" by Mark Murphy, "Collard Greens" by Freddie McCoy, "Theme From The Carpetbaggers" by Jack McDuff, "Filthy McNasty" by Eddie Jefferson, "Evil Ways" by Cal Tjader, "Kenny's Theme" by Kenny Burrell, and "Games" by Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones.

VariousSpectrum – Thrilling 60's Film Noir Themes ... LP
Plastic (Italy), 1960s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $22.99
The folks at Plastic dig a little deeper than usual for this one, and they turn up a nice batch of cuts – some obscure, some better-known – to define the genre of 60's Noir. The 16 tracks on the compilation are a mix of crime/spy type tracks, moody jazz vocal tracks, and dark moody orchestral themes. Although some of the stuff is a bit funky, the mood is much different than the usual funk compilation, and has more of an overall spooky feel. Tracks include "Out Of This World" by Mark Murphy, "Crossfire" by The Hurricanes, "Ennloro" by Percy Faith, "Jesus Christ Superstar" by Armando Sciascia, "Goldfinger" by Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, "Love For Sale" by Eartha Kitt, "Harlem Love Theme" by JJ Johnson, and more by Lalo Schifrin, Cal Tjader, Oscar Brown, and others!

VariousVerve Remixed ... CD
Verve, 1960s/2002. Used .... $4.99
A very groovy idea! This sparkling set takes older vocal jazz tunes from the Verve catalog, and uses the songs as the basis for new tracks by some of the better producers in the global groove underground. The mix of styles and eras is quite compelling – as torchy vocals drift over the top of cutting edge beats – creating a sound that's bound to get you digging through the crates for some of these singers, and reevaluating work from the past like never before! Titles include "Who Needs Forever" by Astrud Gilberto remixed by Thievery Corporation, "Strange Fruit" by Billie Holiday remixed by Tricky, "Hare Krishna" by Tony Scott remixed by King Britt, "See Line Woman" by Nina Simone remixed by Masters At Work, "Return To Paradise" by Shirley Horn remixed by Mark De Clive-Lowe, "Feelin Good" by Nina Simone remixed by Joe Claussell, "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?" by Dinah Washington remixed by Rae & Christian, and "How Long Has This Been Going On" by Carmen McCrae remixed by MJ Cole. And don't miss the super-low priced Verve Unmixed CD! CD

New VariousWayfaring Strangers – Guitar Soli ... CD
Numero, Mid 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $15.99 18.98
A wonderful collection of obscure solo acoustic guitar tunes from the mid 60s up to the dawn of the 80s – beautiful work from a slew of players we've never heard of – but we'd put right up there with Fahey and Basho in the way they reach from the back porch to the cosmos with just their fingers and some strings! One thing we love about this set, and the Numero Group releases to date, is how deep they dig and what beauty they unearth, somehow with impeccable sound quality. Some tunes are starkly beautiful, some chime on fairly intently, some do both those things and more – and it's very heartening and instantly appealing stuff – wordless tunes that carry a lot of sensitivity and emotion! The 40 page booklet features detailed notes and bio material for each track, plus an introduction by Numero's Rob Sevier and essays by Dan Lambert and Jim Ohlschmidt. Titles include "Beginning" by Dana Westover", "Raga In D" by Ted Lucas, "Sailor's Dream" by Scotte Witte, "Flight" by George Cromarty, "Diagonal" by Richard Crandell, "Baha Dream Songs" by Daniel Hecht, "Delta Freeze" by Jim Ohlschmidt, "No More School" by Stephen Cohen, "Strawberry Man" by Mark Lang, "Warm River" by Bread Chequer, "One Forty Eight" by Swayne Canna and more.

Grant GreenMain Attraction ... CD
1976. New Copy .... Around May 19, 2014
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean overall! There's a fair bit of great players in the lineup – including Jon Faddis on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Joe Farrell on tenor – and the horns soar out nicely to set the scene over some tightly stepping backings – all served up with plenty of room for Grant to solo spaciously on guitar! The title track – "The Main Attraction" – is nearly 20 minutes long – and the other two tracks, "Creature" and "Future Feature", both approach the 10 minute mark themselves! CD

RedmanMuddy Waters ... LP
1996. New Copy (reissue).... Around April 29, 2014
By this point the Funk Docta has perfected his wylin'-out blunted rhyme style over funkified east coast beats. Much of the production is handled by Erick Sermon & Rockwilder. This may actually be his high-water mark, although we don't dare discount the previous albums, everything after this is an imitation. 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 Nancy WilsonThis Mother's Daughter ... CD
1976. New Copy .... Around June 18, 2014
One of Nancy Wilson's hippest albums from the 70s – a great record of smooth mellow tracks produced by Eugene McDaniels, handled with some nice jazzy flourishes, and a warm soulful sound that brings out the best in Nancy's vocals! If you've dug her vocals on the Life, Love, & Harmony album, you'll find that this one's pretty similar – with some great easily grooving tunes that well mark her move into modern soul – and a sophistication that goes way beyond her work of the 60s! Titles include "China", "I Don't Want A Sometimes Man", "From You To Me To You", "Stay Tuned", "When We Were One", and "Now". CD

Beastie BoysCheck Your Head ... CD
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1993. Used .... Just Sold Out!
If Paul's Boutique was the Beasties heavily mind-blown Dust Brothers dusted psychedelic hip hop Sgt Peppers, then Check Your Head is their down and dirty back to basics raw funk run at something like Never Mind The Bollocks. Their first outing without the guidance of an outside producer, though the trio did bring in ringers like Money Mark and Mario Caldato Junior, this set's a ride into a whole other mindset, still fueled by sunny So Cal vibes and the Beasties own take on rhyme science. It's hard to imagine an album that would produce so many anthems for true heads and the Lollapalooza crowd alike, but this is it. Includes "Jimmy James", "Pass The Mic", "Gratitude", "Finger Lickin' Good", "So Whatcha Want", "Time For Livin'", "Something's Got To Give", "Groove Holmes" and "Professor Booty". CD

Bird Show BandBird Show Band ... CD
Amish, 2010. Used .... Just Sold Out!
A very nice set of avant synth sounds from The Bird Show Band – featuring Ben Vida on Moog Voyager and some of the most adventurous accompaniment a guy could ask for – including Jim Baker on ARP 2600, Josh Abrams on acoustic bass and a pair of Tortoise players on drums, John Herndon and Dan Bitney. This synth centered set of improvisations are pretty insistent and inviting, steering clear of the more minimalist tendencies of some of Vida's work. Excellent! Titles include "Quintet" (parts One, Two, Three & Four), ""Little Song", "Quartet" and "BSB Synthesizer Solo". CD

New Seamus BlakeLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2009. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
The tenor sound of Seamus Blake is always a treat – and he really stretches out here on a set of long, live tracks with a great group! Most titles go way past the ten minute mark, and the always-inventive Blake manages to make plenty happen with all that time – working deftly in a group that features piano from David Kikoski, and some great guitar interplay with Lage Lund – whose tones ring out strongly on the lead of most tracks! Titles include "Fear Of Rooming", "Amuse Bouche", "Consequence", and "Subterfuge". CD

Art BlakeyAfricaine ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. New Copy (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
Killer work from the classic late 50s years of the Jazz Messengers – and an album that Blue Note didn't choose to release until the end of the 70s! The record's a historic one – as it mark's Wayne Shorter's first session with the group, and the first time that they recorded his great composition "Lester Left Town" – a wonderful tune that sounds a bit different here than on the later Jazz Messengers recording of the composition. Shorter's talent is already burning brightly at this point – as is that of trumpeter Lee Morgan – and other group members include Walter Davis Jr on piano, Jymie Merritt on bass, and Blakey on drums. Titles include "Lester Left Town", "Haina", "The Midget", "Celine", and "Africaine", which has a guest appearance by Dizzy Reece on congas! LP, Vinyl record album

Budos BandBudos Band III ... CD
Daptone, 2010. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The Daptone House Of Soul blueprint is a big part of the recipe, as it should be. Classic funky soul grit holds it all together and each cut has an unshakable groove, but with that in full effect, the group is free to explore. The Budos horns are as impeccable and communicative as ever, with brass that ranges from classic stateside funk and Afro influences. The percussion (bongos, clave, cowbell and more) is just as broadly thought out and tightly delivered, snakey bass lines, flute and the sometimes secret weapon on Budos Band III, the electric organ – which brings a bit of a garage psych/funk rock vibe. Truly exceptional work from the one of the best bands of their generation! Includes "Rite Of The Ancients", "Black Venom", "River Serpentine", "Unbroken, Unshaven", "Nature's Wrath", "Golden Dune's", "Budo's Dirge", "Raja Haje", "Crimson Skies", "Mark Of The Unnamed" and "Reppirt Yad" (a funked up Lennon/McCartney cover...read it backwards, kids).

John Carter & Bobby BradfordMosaic Select – The Complete Revelation Sessions (Revelation/Secrets/unreleased material) (3CD set) ... CD
Mosaic/Revelation, 1969/1971/1972/1979. New Copy 3CD .... Just Sold Out!
An amazing collection of music – some of the hippest jazz to ever come out of the west coast scene, and a legendary pairing of trumpeter Bobby Bradford and saxophonist John Carter! Both players have really gone onto leave their mark in later years – but honestly, they almost reached the peak of their powers with these incredible early recordings – beautifully bracing modern jazz, of a sort that somewhat follows an Ornette Coleman lineage, but which also opens up into the new spirituality that was hitting the LA scene in the post-Coltrane years – almost a bridge between the Coleman/Dolphy generation, and the later Nimbus scene that would rise in the west! The music here is stark, simple, and quite organic – yet has an energy that's all its own – an amazing progression of rhythms and horn sounds, wrapped together beautifully through a killer set of original compositions. Carter plays alto, tenor, clarinet, and flute; Bradford is on trumpet, and rhythm players include Nate Morgan and Bill Henderson on piano, Henry Franklin and Louis Spears on bass, and Bruz Freeman and Leon Ndugu Chancler on drums. The set brings together material originally issued on the Seeking and Secrets albums for the Revelation label – but then also features lots more previously unreleased tracks – making the set more than 50% new material! Most titles are of the 1969/Early 70s vintage of the Revelation albums – but the set also features some beautiful 1979 duets between Carter and Bradford, with no other instrumentation at all. 22 tracks in all – and an instant treasure!

New Bootsy CollinsOne Giveth, The Count Taketh Away ... LP
Warner, 1982. Sealed .... Just Sold Out!
Bootsy Collins steps strongly from the shadow of George Clinton here – and wrote, arranged, and produced most of the album himself! Of course, George was having plenty of his own troubles at the time – but that only allowed Bootsy to take the helm even more, and step out with a batch of grooves that still keeps his star power plenty high. Of course, he's got some great help here too – from Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns, Midnight Star, Godmomma, and P-Funk regulars Bernie Worrell and Gary Shider – all of whom help contribute some classic elements to grooves that include "Shine O Myte", "#1 Funkateer", "So Nice You Name Him Twice", "Take A Lickin & Keep On Tickin", and "Countracula".

Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Kid Koala, and Dan The Automator pool their skills for this dawn of the 2000s sci-fi hip hop classic – the masterful Deltron 3030! The guest list is almost too long to get into, but Money Mark, Prince Paul, PB Wolf and Mr. Lif are all here, along with many others. One of the benchmark albums in the leftfield underground hip hop canon – and a hugely influential set that burst the doors wide open for the more creative spirits in the hip hop and even experimental pop. Tracks include "State Of The Nation", "3030", "The Fantabulous Rap Extravaganza", "Things You Can Do", "Positive Contact", "St Catherine St.", "Virus", "Mastermind", "National Movie Review", "Time Keeps On Slipping", "Turbulence (remix)", "Battlesong", "Memory Loss" and more.

New Gil Evans/Gary McFarlandDedication Series IX – The Great Arrangers (Out Of The Cool/Profiles) ... LP
Impulse, 1960/1966. Sealed 2LP Gatefold .... Just Sold Out!
A great 2LP set – with two classic albums on Impulse! First is Gil Evans' Out Of The Cool – a pivotal session for Gil – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". Next is Gary McFarland's Profiles – a great little jazz record by Gary – very different than his groovy/easy albums on Verve, and with a dark sound that shows his strength as a composer and arranger. The group features McFarland in the lead on vibes, plus reed work by Phil Woods, Zoot Sims, and Richie Kamuca, and lots of rhythm backing by the likes of Richard Davis, Gabor Szabo, Sam Brown, and others. Willis Conover does a bit of narration, and tracks include "Sage Hands", "Milo's Other Samba", "Winter Colors", and "Bygones & Boogie". LP, Vinyl record album
