James MoodyFlute N The Blues ... LP
Argo, 1956. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
One of James Moody's first albums for Argo – and an album that features him shifting from tenor sax over to flute – and playing in a slyly seductive way that would have great implications for generations of soul jazz musicians for years to come! The sound here is never sleepy – and instead shows the flute to be a perfect vehicle for creating more sensitive colors and tones in jazz – in a way that's also offset by a bit of work on alto and tenor on the album as well. The group features some excellent work from trumpeter Johnny Coles and baritonist Pee Wee Moore – plus some sparkling arrangements from pianist Jimmy Boyd – and Eddie Jefferson joins in on 3 great vocal numbers. Titles include "Birdland Story", "I Cover The Waterfront", "Breaking The Blues", "Easy Living", "Richard's Blues", and "Boo's Tune". LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyHey It's James Moody ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good .... Just Sold Out!
A magnificent little album – one of James Moody's first collaborations with arranger Tom McIntosh – one of the most sensitive jazz voices of his time. McIntosh works in a world of many tones and colors – and he really pushes Moody past straighter solo approaches, into a mode where he's shaping sound into complex emotion – hitting a level of soulfulness that might never been expected in earlier years! Moody plays both tenor and flute on the session, and rhythm is by a piano-less trio that features John Gray on guitar, Eldee Young on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums. And if that's not enough, Eddie Jefferson joins in on vocals on 2 tracks – lending his own lyrics to Moody's great original "Last Train From Overbrook", and doing a great reading of "Summertime". Other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Indian Summer", "Please Say Yes", and "Blue Jubilee". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

New James BrownJames Brown Singles Volume 10 – 1975 to 1979 ... CD
Polydor/Hip-O Select, Late 70s. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
James Brown's funky singles from the mid-to-late 70s – Volume 10 in the complete singles series by The Godfather on Hip-O Select – and he's still killing it, one cut after another! This is a fascinating period for JB, in which the Godfather was still working hard, and more often than not, delivering top tier funky soul – but he wasn't hitting the charts like he used to, while those that he doubtlessly inspired were hitting pay dirt with his style. He's working in number of modes, from swaggering, taut and masterful takes on his personal stamp on classic funk, some bluesy soul, a rare couple of ballads, the Godfather covering the King and more. Even with the stylistic breadth, he never dispenses with what mad him great in the first place – doing his thing with a vigorous, sweaty groove unlike anyone else! Includes "Superbad, Supersick" (Parts 1 & 2), "Dooley's Junkyard Dogs", "Everbody Wanna Get Funky One More Time" (Parts 1 & 2), "I Refuse To Lose", "Bodyheat" (Parts 1 & 2)", "Home Again", "Give me Some Skin", "People Who Criticize", "Love Me Tender", "The Spank", "Nature" (Parts 1 & 2), "It's Too Funky In Here" and many more.

New Michael HendersonIn The Night Time ... LP
Buddah/Arista, 1978. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smooth mellow soul by Michael Henderson – taking up where he left off with his work with Norman Connors, and proving that he was an even better vocalist than bassist. The overall sound of this one's perhaps a bit slicker than his first 2 albums on Buddah – but there's still some strong modern soul moments, and good production from the Sigma Sound Studios. The best cuts have a smooth mid-tempo groove – not unlike the modern soul coming out of Philly at the time, and perfectly suited to Henderson's jazzy sensibilities. Titles include "Take Me I'm Yours", "Whisper In My Ear", "Am I Special", "One To One", and "In The Night-Time". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousUplook Records Story – Vintage Soul From Philadelphia Presented By Gene Lawson ... CD
Uplook/Grapevine (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the Philly scene of the late 60s – material from the tiny Uplook Records label, a company that only had a small number of artists in its roster, but all of them were great! The collection is put together a bit differently than others on the Grapevine label – in that it structures the set in different "chapters", to present each Uplook artist discreetly – offering up both sides of their best singles for the label, in a way that allows you to focus on their talents more closely. The Uplook sound is one that works especially well for male vocalists – who represent most of the work here – and there's a definite upbeat Philly style going on here, a precursor to Gamble & Huff that's totally great. Titles include some especially great early work by Teddy Pendergrass – the titles "We Got Love", "Angel With Muddy Feet", and "Should I Go Or Should I Stay" – plus "I'll Come Running Back", "What A Lucky Guy I Am", and "Heartbreak Of Love" by The Delegates Of Soul; "Candy Baby", "Love Wheel Turning", "Lucky Guy", "Give A Man A Break", and "Finders Keepers" by Charles Mintz; "Gotta Tell Somebody" and "Hooked On You" by Tony Talent; and "Running Back (inst)" by The Uplook Orchestra. 21 tracks in all!
