EmotionsSincerely ... LP
Red Label, 1984. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A great comeback for The Emotions – a post-Columbia album issued after a few years away from the business – but one that still has the girls' very much at the top of their game! The record's got a wonderful feel that's quite different from other directions the group might have pursued at the time – and most tracks are free from the too-commercial sounds that other female artists were shouldered with at the time – styles that oddly were often inspired by The Emotions' big successes of the late 70s. The vocals are great throughout – mixing leads and harmonies nicely – and arrangements are handled by Benjamin Wright, Billy Osborne, and Wayne Vaughn. Most tunes have a mellow or midtempo groove – with definite 80s instrumentation on keyboards and beats, but never in a way that's too over the top. Titles include "All Things Come In Time", "Sincerely", "Can't Blow Out The Candle", "You're The One", "Are You Through With My Heart", "Never Let Another", and "I Can Do Anything".

New Mose AllisonMose Alive ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of Mose's mid 60s albums for Atlantic – recorded live, with a bit more of a hip flair than some of his earlier work for Prestige and Columbia, but still with those great vocals that went onto influence a generation of beatnik jazz singers. Mose has more than a bit of New Orleans in his tone – but he's also got some northern distance from his material, bringing a nice bit of wit into the recordings. There's a total of 11 tracks including "Parchman Farm", "Smashed", "Seventh Son", "Fool's Paradise", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "The Chaser". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons, Etta Jones, & Jack McDuffSoul Summit Vol 2 ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A set that's less a "summit" than a great collection of groovy work for Prestige Records in the 60s – tracks that didn't make it onto other full albums of the time, but which feature material by some of the most soulful talents on the label! Tenorist Gene Ammons is the main star here – stretching out wonderfully on most numbers on the record – although the set also features added tenor work from Red Holloway, George Barrow, and Harold Vick! The mighty Jack McDuff lends his Hammond to a few tunes, Etta Jones sings on three numbers, and the record even features trumpet from Clark Terry, alto from Oliver Nelson, and congas from Ray Barretto too – on cuts that include "Scram", "Cool Cool Daddy", "Ballad For Baby", "If You Are But A Dream", "But Not For Me", and "Love I've Found You".

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades! Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "She's Leaving Home", "Lovely Rita", "When I'm Sixty Four", "A Day In The Life", and "Fixing A Hole".

Big MaybelleBig Maybelle Sings ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $29.99
A great collection of Maybelle's big early hits for Savoy – all featuring backings directed by Ernie Wilkins, with a nice jazzy undercurrent. Maybelle's got a robust voice that was one of the first key attempts to bridge gospel, R&B, and jazz – and the album features 10 tracks that include "Rock House", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Jim", "All Of Me", and "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie".

New Blues MagoosPsychedelic Lollipop ... LP
Mercury, 1966. Good ... $4.99
Brilliant garage psych from Blues Magoos – a group that's raw and punchy enough to pummel, but pulled off some sweeter numbers and lighter harmonies incredibly well! Walloping drums, excitable vocals and wailing organ grooves – the cracked the charts, but still bring a fully charged proto punk vibe. Totally excellent, the kind of thing we wish were staples of oldies radio, but for whatever reason are left to deeper rock diggers to discover all these years later. Includes "Sometimes I Think About", "Love Seems Doomed", "Worried Life Blues", "Tobacco Road", "One By One" and "I'll Go Crazy". LP, Vinyl record album

Red CallenderLowest – The Music Of Red Callender ... LP
Metro, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Given that Red was one of the few tuba players in jazz, this album certainly was "The Lowest" – at least in terms of tone, as Red spends a lot of time rumbling around in bottom notes! The style's less clunky than you might think, though, as the setting is late 50s LA – with chamber-type arrangements that match Red's tuba with more breezy players like Buddy Collette, Bill Pitman, Gerald Wilson, Gerald Wiggins, and Billy Bean – who work with Red in a mode that's almost like some of the Chico Hamilton albums on Pacific Jazz, a mixture of jazz and whimsical instrumention with a tightly arranged and haunting feel. Tracks include "Of Thee I Sing", "The Lowest", "Pickin Pluckin Whistlin & Walkin", "Another Blues", "Volume Too", and "Five Four Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Red CallenderRed Callender Speaks Low ... LP
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the few albums ever recorded by Red Callender – a player who certainly speaks "low", given that his instrument here is the tuba! Red's got a rumbling, bassy sound that's surprisingly un-corny – an approach to the tuba that's also informed by Callender's many years playing bass on other jazz dates – and in a way, he uses the instrument almost like a bass on this set – working out lower rhythmic lines that almost remind us of a bowed bass at times! Other players on the date include Buddy Collette on flute and clarinet, Vince De Rosa and Irving Rosenthal on French horns, Bob Bain on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Bill Douglass on drums. The absence of a piano makes for a mighty nice sound – one that's lighter than you might think for a tuba-related date – and which steps along with almost a Chico Hamilton Quintet sort of feel. Titles include "Cris", "A Foggy Day", "Nice Day", "Speak Low", and "Darn That Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Conte Candoli/Stan LeveyWest Coasting ... LP
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $16.99
One of the better of Bethlehem's west coast sessions from the 50's, and a split LP that brings together 2 different sessions – one by trumpeter Conte Candoli, and one by drummer Stan Levey (both sessions, we think, were issued on 10" originally). The Candoli session features a quartet that has Candoli as the main soloist on tracks like "Night Flight", "Tune For Tex", and "On the Alamo". The Levey session features a sextet with Candoli, Zoot Sims, and Jimmy Giuffre, and swings a bit harder than the quartet side. Tracks on this one are mostly orignals, and include "Drum Sticks", "West Coasting", "Fast Clip", and "Extraversion". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some light wear, a peeled-off gloss finish, a partially split bottom seam, and some small stains on the back.)

Benny CarterAspects (aka Jazz Calendar) ... LP
United Artists, 1959. Very Good ... $5.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name – but you've gotta thank Benny for getting past that simple trick and keeping things real with an unobtrusive title and cover – and some extremely strong arrangements that cook nicely no matter what the tune! Titles include "Swingin In November", "Something For October", "August Moon", "March Wind", and "February Fiesta". LP, Vinyl record album

As the title suggests, best believe it's gangsta. 13 tracks in all, including "What U N***az Thought", "4 Tha Scrilla", "It's Goin' Down", "Can't Tell Me $hit", "Red Rum", "Killa Kali", and "Funk Season".

Buck Clayton & Buddy TateBuck & Buddy ... LP
Prestige/Swingville, 1960. Fair ... $4.99
Beautiful blowing from Buck Clayton and Buddy Tate – captured here in the relaxed, easy-going setting of the Swingville label! The album's got a lot more charm than some of Clayton's sides for Columbia – a bit more mellow, with the kind of after hours feel that lets players like these show their strongest suits on their instruments. Clayton plays trumpet, Tate tenor – and rhythm is from the trio of Sir Charles Thompson on piano, Gene Ramey on bass, and Mousie Alexander on drums. Titles include "High Life", "Birdland Betty", "Can't We Be Friends", and "Kansas City Nights". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Swingville pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a number of marks but plays nice and loud overall with some crackling. Cover has a split top seam and spine, some splitting on the bottom seam, some wear, and some stains on the back.)

Earl ColemanLove Songs ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A great return to form for vocalist Earl Coleman – a singer who'd recorded earlier in the bop years, but who makes a rare 60s appearance here on a soulful set for Atlantic Records! Coleman's got a rich voice that's somewhere between Johnny Hartman and Billy Eckstine – with a great range that really goes deep when it wants, yet still has a fluid sensibility that's definitely jazz more than anything else. Billy Taylor's on the record on piano, and leads the combo on most numbers – but the set also features some nice arrangements from Frank Foster and Tom McIntosh, both of whom really keep things interesting. Titles include "Charade", "When Did You Leave Heaven", "I Wish I Knew", "Day In the Life Of a Fool", and "I Won't Tell A Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy takes his Swinging Shepherds crew to the movies on this one – serving up a set of tunes from 40s and 50s films that all come off perfectly with the group's multi-flute approach! The sound's nicely mellow at times, but still has that tightly arranged west coast modern style that made the group's first record so great. Players include Paul Horn, Bud Shank, and Harry Klee on flutes – plus Jim Hall on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Titles include "The Bad & The Beautiful", "The Shrike", "Invitation", "Ruby", "Swinging On A Star", and "Intermezzo" LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Collette's definitely a man of many parts here – and many talents too, considering the reedwork on the set! Buddy plays alto, tenor, clarinet, and flute – using the horns with wonderful invention that really showcases his unique style of the time – that mix of modern and playful modes you'd hear in the Chico Hamilton group when Collette was around! The album features a few different groups, too – with players who include Gerald Wilson on trumpet, Ernie Freeman or Gerald Wiggins on piano, Red Callender on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Ruby", "Cycle", "Cheryl Ann", "Jazz City Blues", "Zan", and "Jungle Pipe". LP, Vinyl record album

4 long tracks with plenty of room to roam around – a perfect setting for a young John Coltrane to demonstrate his distinctly different approach to the tenor sax! The album's one of Trane's key classics for Prestige – a quartet side that features backing by the trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – very open, and uniquely creative – especially in some of the more surprising moments! Titles include a great version of Jackie McLean's "Little Melonae", plus "Rise N Shine", "If There Is Someone Lovelier Than You", and "I See Your Face Before Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Lush Cuban material, recorded by the Conjunto Casino in the years before Castro's regime, when RCA could still get its hands on material like this, and package it for release in the US. The tracks have a fairly traditional approach – with a mix of romantic numbers and mambos – and titles include "Yo Soy El Son Cubano", "Influencias", "Que Sera", "Cada Noche Que Pasa", and "Si No Eres Tu".

Atlantic, 1959. Very Good ... $6.99
A lovely side by Chris Connor for Atlantic, recorded not too long after her stint at Bethlehem – where she'd perfected an icy cool style of singing that's still to be matched to this day! The album features larger arrangements by Richard Wess – but still has a light jazzy feel, intimate in approach, despite the larger musical backings. Chris' voice is at once personal and removed – a razor's edge of emotion, repressing some impulses, and opening up surprisingly at other moments. Titles include "Skyscraper Blues", "The Lady Sings The Blues", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "When Sunny Gets Blue", "Just In Time", "Baltimore Oriole", and "How Little We Know". LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordMr Blues Plays Lady Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A great meeting of two key sides of Atlantic Records in the 60s – a set that has altoist Hank Crawford blowing jazz solos over a set of tracks dedicated to Aretha Franklin! Most numbers are Franklin vocal classics, served up here in some sweet instrumental readings with arrangements by Arif Mardin – who really keeps the mood the same as his work with Aretha – and Hank's alto really shines in this soulful setting, hitting a warm mode that's pretty darn great. The title cut – "Lady Soul" – is an original by Crawford, dedicated to Aretha – and other titles include "Take A Look", "Going Down Slow", "Groovin", "Baby I Love You", "Never Let Me Go", and "Ain't No Way".

A great little album by The Drifters – different than most of their other work for Atlantic, but still quite nice! The bulk of the album features the group running through jazzy versions of pop tunes – like "Quando Quando Quando", "More", "The Good Life", and "Desafinado" – all of which they do quite well, with a classy sound that fits well with the arrangements by Ray Ellis. The album also features one more regular tune by the group – the single "Saturday Night At The Movies", a killer uptown soul number arranged by Teacho Wiltshire. LP, Vinyl record album

New DriftersI'll Take You Where The Music's Playing ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good ... $9.99
The Drifters' last full album for Atlantic Records – and a rock-solid set that may well be one of their best for the label in the 60s! The album's heavy on those lightly loping tunes that the group virtually invented a few years before – that slightly-sweetened approach to soul that became known as the uptown sound and which still had The Drifters as one of its key proponents at the time of this set. Production is by the great Bert Berns, who really knows how to balance all elements perfectly – and many of the lead vocals are by Johnny Moore, whose crackling vocals bring in a nice sense of feeling, even when the tunes are pretty darn catchy. But possibly the best thing about the record is the songs – as they're mostly pretty fresh tracks that move past some of the overplayed Drifters hits – but which still resonate with similar themes about live and life in the big city. Titles include "I'll Take You Where The Music's Playing", "I've Got Sand In My Shoes", "At The Club", "He's Just A Playboy", "Follow Me", "Far From The Maddening Crowd", and "Come On Over To My Place".

One of Duke's standout sides for Columbia during the late 50s wealth of new recordings – a live set recorded at Miami's Bal Masque nightclub. The arrangements are sophisticated, and Duke's piano is hitting that darkly-tinged later style – but the focus is also on danceable arrangements, letting the crowds sway and swing to the group's warmly chromatic orchestrations. Titles include "Got A Date With An Angel", "Satan Takes A Holiday", "Satin Doll", "Lady In Red", "Donkey Serenade", and "Laugh Clown Laugh". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
Very nice work from one of Ellington's revival periods – when he was signed to Columbia in the late 50s, and recording some of the best work of his career. This set moves past the modernism of some of Duke's other sessions at the time, and offers a more straight-ahead set in true "jazz party" tradition. Jimmy Rushing sings vocals on a few tracks, and Duke's band features Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonzalves, Jimmy Woode, and a guest appearance by Dizzy Gillespie. Tracks include "Ready Go", "Red Garter", "Malletoba Spank", "UMMG", and "Tymperturbably Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

The Five was a nom-du-session for this west coast group featuring tenorist Bill Perkins, trumpeter Conte Candoli, and pianist Pete Jolly – over a set of arrangements and compositions by Shorty Rogers. Rogers was always one of the best of the west coast arrangers, and this set shows his talent for keeping things lively, yet still getting in enough cerebrality to give the highbrow set their due. Perkins crisp tenor is a treat, as always, and his solos jump out a bit more strongly than Jolly's piano or Candoli's trumpet. Tracks include "I Dig Ed", "Perkin", "Beyond The Sea", "Red Eyes", and a very goofy version of "Whistle While You Work". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric GaleGinseng Woman/Multiplication ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
A pair of 70s guitar classics from Eric Gale – back to back on a single CD! Ginseng Woman is a wonderfully strong effort from Gale – a player who'd done countless studio work on fusion sessions in the 70s, but who never really broke that strongly as a leader until this set! Gale's tone here is nicely compressed, but still has a warmth that comes from his use of a hollow-body – smooth enough to slide alongside the electric Bob James production, but with enough humanity to allow Gale's spirit to shine through nicely. Richard Tee plays organ on the set, some tracks have backing vocals, and the overall sound is sort of post-CTI, or Kudu-esque. Titles include "Red Ground", "Ginseng Woman", "Derabbit", "East End, West End", and "Sara Smile". Multiplication is a great late 70s fusion set from guitarist Gale working here with his CTI labelmate Bob James. In fact, except for the absence of Creed Taylor, this set is in many ways like a CTI session, with sidemen that include James, Steve Gadd and Anthony Jackson – and a full string and brass section, plus other players who you might not associate with that label, like Richard Tee, Alphonso Johnson and Ralph Macdonald. The groove is slightly mellow at times, almost like James' own work from the period – but which also shows a bit of a tight funk approach on the best cuts too. Titles include "Gypsy Jello", "Morning Glory", "Oh Mary Don't You Weep", "Thumper", and "Multiplication". CD

Red GarlandRed Garland Trio – Moodsville Vol 6 ... CD
Moodsville (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
Red Garland's sound was already often mellow and laidback in the late 50s, but it takes on a whole new sense of that style here in a rare session for Prestige's Moodsville label! As with others on the imprint, the focus here is on the gentler sounds of the late nite scene – more ballads and easygoing numbers, but still played with a strong degree of jazz – and not the kind of cocktail modes that other labels would use when putting "moods" on the front of a record! Red's trio here is the familiar one from other Prestige albums – Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and the only change, really, is that the tracks are all mellower ones, but still done with plenty of bluesy inflections on the keys from Red! Titles include "I Love You Yes I Do", "And The Angels Sing", "Blues For Ann", "I'll Never Stop Loving You", and "Bass-ment Blues". CD

Gentle genius from Red Garland – working here in classic trio formation with Sam Jones and Art Taylor – on a mellow set of late nite numbers and subtle ballads, all carried off in the best tradition of the Moodsville label! Eddie Lockjaw Davis joins the group on 3 tracks on the set – blowing in a style that's spare, open-mouthed, and amazingly soulful – more so almost than even his best ballad blowing on his organ-based records for Prestige during the same time. Davis really sparkles tremendously on the tunes "Softly Baby", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "We'll Be Together Again" – and other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Blue Room", and "Wonder Why".

Ron Geesin & Rogers WatersMusic From The Body ... LP
Harvest (UK), 1970. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An incredibly tripped-out record – of the sort we're stunned was ever recorded for a major! The work's a side project of Roger Waters from Pink Floyd, done in collaboration with Ron Geesin for a film directed by Roy Battersby – and it's a shifting landscape of short experimental tracks, easily drifting back and forth between off-kilter instrumental numbers to sing-songy vocal ones that are far madder than Syd Barrett's work ever was. There's some nice folksy touches that sit by the tripped-out guitar work – and overall, the album's relatively introspective, especially for the setting, with less of the guitar-churning sound than you'd expect from Floyd at this point! Titles include "Body Transport", "Embryonic Womb Walk", "Give Birth To A Smile", "Chain Of Life", "Dance Of The Red Corpuscles", "Our Song", and "Bridge Passage For Three Plastic Teeth".

The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place. The album's got a great Don Martin cover, and titles include "Battleground", "Five Brothers", "Four & One Moore", "Red Door", and "Zoot Case". LP, Vinyl record album

This great EP is a slight departure for the Death Waltz label – in that it's a contemporary set, rather than a straight up soundtrack – but the group themselves are revisiting their soundtrack classics.

ABC, 1958. Very Good ... $0.49
A surprisingly great album from Eydie Gorme – quite different than you might expect from the cover! Normally, we'd cringe at the idea of a "roaring 20s" set of tunes – but Eydie really does a great job with the material – taking tunes from a few decades before, and reworking them with a more modern, jazz-based approach – done with plenty of help on backings from Don Costa! Gorme's young vocals are great with the material – and the set features some surprisingly nice versions of "I Wanna Be Loved By You", "When The Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbin Along", "Button Up Your Overcoat", "Chicago", and "Singin In The Rain" – plus "Let's Do It", "My Buddy", and "My Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Friedrich GuldaMusic For 4 Soloists & Band No 1 ... LP
Saba/MPS (Germany), 1965. Very Good+ ... $36.99
One of the most beautiful albums Friedrich Gulda ever recorded for MPS – a wonderful session that features key solo work from players who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, JJ Johnson on trombone, and Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone sax! The work has a somewhat serious feel, but isn't nearly as much so as some of Gulda's other work – and the presence of the soloists really keeps things soulful throughout – with a fluid sense of tone and color that's really wonderful. Gulda plays piano with a larger ensemble, but they really drop back nicely to give the soloists plenty of space! Titles include the 3 part title track – "Music For 4 Soloists & Band No 1" – plus "Minuet" and "Prelude & Fugue". LP, Vinyl record album

Slide HamptonJazz With A Twist ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good- ... $8.99
A firey stormer from the great Slide Hampton! The album's one of his few early sides for Atlantic – and like the others, it's a groundbreaking batch of larger group material, with slide out front on trombone, and the rest of the ensemble vamping along like a tight Blue Note combo. Players are excellent – and include George Coleman on tenor, Horace Parlan on piano, Hobart Dotson on trumpet, and Ray Barretto on drums – and Slide makes them come together so tightly, you'd think they were working together every night of the week! Titles include "The Barbarians", "Strollin", "The Jazz Twist", "Red Top", "Slide Slid", and "Day In Day Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie HarperFive Brothers (aka Herbie Harper Quintet) ... LP
Tampa, 1955. Very Good ... $29.99
Arguably the greatest session ever cut by trombonist Herbie Harper as a leader – and if not that, then certainly the one that has the most edge! Herbie's working here in a mode that's still as fluid as some of his other sessions from the 50s, but which also has a bit more of a "rasp" in the tone overall – an approach that's a bit more down-n-dirty than some of his more measured records – and which has some especially nice phrasing from Harper on trombone and Bob Enevoldsen on tenor sax. The rest of the group includes Red Mitchell on bass, Don Overburg on guitar, and Frank Capp on drums – and the whole thing's got a really nicely spontaneous and earthy quality. Titles include "Skull Cap", "Jim's Tune", "Juan Don", "Adios", "Godchild", "Don't Buck It", and "Alone Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Harriott/John Mayer Double QuintetIndo-Jazz Fusions ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good- ... $14.99
The best of British modern jazz meets the world of post-colonial music on the London scene – and the result is a groundbreaking blend of cultural styles! Reedman Joe Harriott and his trumpeter Shake Keane both brought a fresh West Indian sensibility to the London scene in the 50s – and violinist/keyboardist John Mayer brought some very strong expressions from Indian music – both of which are blended here in an amazing way that went onto have a huge influence on other records for years to come! The tracks are long, and all penned by Mayer – in a mode that draws heavily from Indian classical music, but features lots of jazz elements from Harriott on alto, Keane on trumpet, Pat Smythe on piano, Coleridge Goode on bass, and Alan Ganley on drums – plus a bit of flute from Chris Taylor, who was a member of Mayer's group. Mayer plays both violin and harpsichord – amidst sitar, tambura, and tablas too – in a hypnotic blend that holds us rapt through tunes that include "Gana", "Partita", "Mulanti", "Acka Raga", and "Subject".

Reprise, 1968. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A true classic by Jimi with the original Experience lineup – the third of three straight up masterpiece LPs to comeout in just over a year's time by the group! You could call the leftfield astral effects in the mix experimental if you had to – innovations in the studio with echo, that hallucinatory backwards sound effect and other stranger bits – but the passionate, naturally expressive playing and singing by Jimi makes it all fell just right, and the Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell still don't get enough credit for being at the heart of such greatness. A massive 2LP effort that include s"Voodoo Chile", "Crosstown Traffic", "Electric Ladyland", "Little Miss Strange", "Moon Turn The Tides", "Still Raining Still Dreaming" and "All Along The Watchtower".

Billie's voice is wonderful – really coming into its own mature modes – and backing is by a small combo that features the excellent Willie Smith on alto, plus Milt Raskin on piano, and Red Callender on bass. Milt plays solo behind Billie on a classic reading of "Strange Fruit" – and other tracks include "Billie's Blues", "All Of Me", "Body & Soul", and "The Man I Love". CD

Soul jazz tenor legend Red Holloway blows with strings – but in a way that's hipper than you might think! Benny Golson conducted the orchestra, and Red's playing is very edgey – not in a soporific pillowy mode, but much more in the kind of edgey style that Charlie Parker used on some of his famous Ralph Burns recordings, inflected with more of the soul of the 60s stylings of arrangers like Richard Evans.

A totally fantastic set from the turn of the 70s, and one of Freddie Hubbard's most soulful, spiritual albums ever – a seminal chapter in the evolution of soul jazz – and a record that was a keen inspiration for changes to come on labels like Strata East and Black Jazz! The group here features Kenny Barron on both electric and acoustic piano – really stretching out with a hip, open sort of sound – possibly his first of this type on record – and other players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Patato Valdes on added percussion – giving a more complicated groove to the best numbers. Tunes are all long and well-penned – three by Freddie himself ("Eclipse", "Spacetrack", "Gittin' Down"), one by Kenny Barron ("Black Angel"), and one by Walter Bishop (the original recording of his classic "Coral Keys"!)

A stunning mix of talents that brings the heavenly piano and guitar of Antonio Carlos Jobim into play with the lush, but light arrangements of Claus Ogerman – a swirling mix of post-bossa loveliness that redefines Jobim's sound, and opens up new avenues for exploration in sound! The production is amazing – pillowy-soft, but with a complex depth that's hardly been matched again – and although Jobim's the main player, other great musicians include Dom Um Romao, Claudio Slon, Jerome Richardson, Ron Carter, and others. Tracks include "Wave", "Mojave", "Lamento", "Batidinha", "The Red Blouse", "Antiguq", and the groovy "Captain Bacardi". Beautiful all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

Let's Swing – and swing Budd does, in that wonderfully easy-going manner of his – a style that seems almost effortless at times, but which always comes across with plenty of soul! Johnson's tenor is a great fit for the style of Prestige's Swingville label – as he has plenty of room, and few constrictions – a great space to open up alongside players who include Keg Johnson on trombone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, George Duvivier on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums. The tracks have that easy-grooving style of the Swingville series – a bit Verve-ish, but with some rougher edges, an important detail, given Budd's tenor style. Titles include "Blues By Budd", "Uptown Manhattan", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Downtown Manhattan". LP, Vinyl record album

The album features Quincy working through a lot of soul numbers – jamming on them instrumentally with players that include Jerome Richardson, Bobby Bryant, Plas Johnson, Ray Charles, Carol Kaye, and Ben Tucker – plus a nice brace of percussion from Ray Bryant and Gary Coleman.

Roland KirkVolunteered Slavery ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful vocals and a straight-on approach that shows him trying to break out of the avant jazz underground, and reach a wider audience with a spiritual message on tracks like "Search For The Reason Why" and "Spirits Up Above". If this description sounds like a mess, it's not – because this side of the album is one of Kirk's most brilliant statements ever about jazz, soul, love and freedom! Side two has Roland in a straighter vein – running through a tight live set from Newport 1968, handled with fire and imagination, the kind of boundless energy he always brought to his public appearances. Tracks on that set include "One Ton", "Three For The Festival", "Afro Blue", and some great remarks by Roland! LP, Vinyl record album

Slammin soundtrack to this bio-pic which starred Sal Mineo as Gene Krupa, and which features music by Krupa himself, plus Anita O'Day and Red Nichols. Pretty trad and swing all around – but there's a lot of great drum work by Krupa, particularly the type that often got featured in the live scenes of the film. In a way, the whole thing's a lot more storming than some of Krupa's other Verve work, which tends to be more retrained in the drum department. Titles include "Cherokee", "Spiritual Jazz", "I Love My Baby", "Royal Garden Blues", "Song Of India", and "Finale", which features a drum duet with Shelly Manne. LP, Vinyl record album

Timo LassyLive With Lassy – Live In Helsinki 2012 (limited edition with bonus CD) ... LP

Maybe the most classic sounds so far from tenorist Timo Lassy – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the 60s style of most of his other records! The date's a live one, and features Lassy really stretching out with a raw, earthy groove – a completely different side of his talents, but one that follows strongly from the soulful hardbop of his massive recordings for the Ricky Tick label! Instrumentation in the combo includes a great Wurlitzer piano, played with lots of organ-like notes – plus bass, drums, and some sweet Latin percussion to give the whole thing the extra kick you'd find on some Blue Note or Prestige session with Ray Barretto as a guest! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Just One Of Those Things", "Shootin Dice", "Touch Red", "It Could Be Better", "Where's The Man", and "Uncle Harry Came To Town/Sweet Spot".

Yusef LateefSuite 16 ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A groundbreaking set from Yusef Lateef – one that mixes together a number of different soul jazz styles! In a way, Atlantic records tried to handle Yusef Lateef in the same way they did Roland Kirk – by creating recordings that either let him express himself strongly as an arch-modernist, or those that focused on his solo talents in material that was a bit more funky and soulful. This album's got a bit of both – as side one has Yusef playing with slightly electric groups on short tracks that feature vocal backings by the Sweet Inspirations, and side two features Yusef playing with the Cologne Radio Orchestra, conducted by William Fischer, on an extended work called "The Symphonic Blues Suite". We dig the shorter tracks better, and those titles include "Nocturne", "Buddy & Lou", and "Down In Atlanta". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got a nice little bounce right from the start – with some traces of Atlantic soul elements – but it soon moves into some of the more sophisticated territory that you'd hear on Laws albums in the 70s – that wonderful tone, and great sense of space. Chick Corea handled the arrangements, and comes up with some really groovy sounds – and the album includes the tune "No More", with vocals by Melba Moore – plus "Windows", "Shades of Light", "If You Knew", and "Please Let Go".

New Shelly ManneBoss Sounds! ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
One of Shelly Manne's best records of the 60s – largely because the group's so great! Altoist Frank Strozier was playing with Shelly at the time, and his rich talents on the alto make the record almost worth seeking out for him alone – because here, Strozier's opening up his sound a lot more than in the early days – and going for strange phrasings, sharp edges, and other unusual twists that really add a lot more spice to the set than you might expect! The rest of the group features Conte Candoli, Russ Freeman, and Monty Budwig – and in a way, the record takes off from the energy of Shelly's classic Blackhawk sessions, but with even a bit more tightly dynamic sound. Titles include "Frank's Tune", "You Name It", "Margie", and "Idle One". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul jazz organ with big band?

Golson leads a crack band through a set of arrangements that barely get in the way of the organ grooves, and instead give a nice loud sound to the whole set – really pushing the group, especially McDuff's organ, into some wonderfully open territory that's quite different from other work! The best numbers really swing like some of Jimmy Smith's organ/big band sides with Oliver Nelson – particularly Virginia Woolf – and Golson's always been an underrated arranger, and this is one of his best sets! Tracks include "Kettle of Fish", "Prelude", and "Dig Uncle Will". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's recorded live at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem – and the style of the recording is definitely taking a few pages from the James Brown "live" book, especially because we'd swear that a few of these tracks are studio numbers with applause dubbed in! (And interestingly enough, there's a registered trademark next to the "Live At The Apollo" on the inside label – making us wonder if someone copyrighted the concept of recording at the theatre!)

The approach isn't necessarily bop, but it's definitely in the school of some of the more arranged sides by Ronnie Scott and some of the Tempo Records crew.

An excellent swinging Bethlehem session from the mid 50s – one that's recorded in LA, but with a sound that's way hotter than most of the label's other west coast sides! The group's extremely tight – and features Marty Paich on piano as the leader, next to great trombone from Herbie Harper and vibes from Larry Bunker! Bunker's vibes offer a nice contrast to the usual smooth west coast group from the time – as he hits the bars with a nice hard clang that wakes everyone up to groove – and Jack Costanzo is on bongos on all tracks, and he adds a great little kick that keeps things fresh, too. Mickey Lynne sings vocals on "That Old Black Magic", and all other tunes – like "Zing! Went The Strings", "Blues In The Closet", and "The Natives Are Restless Tonight" – are instrumental.

Kudu/Raven (Australia), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $23.99 25.98
A huge chapter in the career of Esther Phillips – four albums for the legendary Kudu label, plus bonus tracks too! First up is From A Whisper To A Scream – one of our favorite-ever albums from Esther Phillips – an album that really helped her transform her sound for the 70s! The approach is a lot more jazzy than before – served up with a good dose of funk, thanks to arrangements from Pee Wee Ellis – fresh from his work with James Brown, but even more electrically-oriented here! Titles include an incredible cover of Gil Scott Heron's "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", plus "From A Whisper To A Scream", "Till My Back Ain't Got No Bone", "Your Love Is So Doggone Good", Scarred Knees", and "Baby, I'm For Real". Alone Again is one of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips' 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time! Backings are by James Brown's old reedman, Pee Wee Ellis – and although there's some of the usual Kudu electric funk in the mix, there's also some deeper soul elements too – a vibe that's often a bit laidback and open, almost more Atlantic Records at points – which is a mighty good fit for Esther's wonderful voice! The album's got a great version of Bill Withers' "Use Me" that features a tasty break in the intro – and other titles include a great version of "Alone Again (Naturally)", plus the cuts "Let's Move & Groove", "Cherry Red", "Let Me In Your Life", and "You & Me Together". Black Eyed Blues is next, and Pee Wee Ellis arranged the album, and gave Esther a nice little dose of funk that really helped her groove – getting out of the sad bag of her Atlantic recordings, and sounding hipper than anyone would have expected! The record features the great slow funk groover "Black Eyed Blues" – and other tracks include "I've Only Known A Stranger", "You Could Have Had Me, Baby", and "Too Many Roads". Performance has a nicely dark undercurrent at times – a sound that's not as smooth as some of Esther's other Kudu albums from the 70s, with bits of R&B bubbling underneath the more contemporary arrangements. Backings are penned by Pee Wee Ellis and Gary King – and titles include the classic funky number "Disposable Society" – one of those great little groovers that never did anything for Esther at the time of its release, but which has really gotten rediscovered in recent years! Other tracks include "Doing Our Thing", "Living Alone", "Can't Trust Your Neighbor With Your Baby", and "I Feel The Same". CD features bonus tracks – "Brother Brother", "I Can Stand The Rain", and "What A Difference A Day Makes (single edit)". CD

This set still features Manne on drums – and Red Mitchell on bass – but it's also got a thoughtful feel that takes it way past any cookie cutter expectations you might have – really recapturing the genius of the Lady record, in the way the trio works with triangulated action to come up with unusual rhythms and melodies for the tunes. Titles include "What Is A Man", "It's A Great Big Town", "Do It The Hard Way", "That Terrific Rainbow", and "Take Him". LP, Vinyl record album

Contemporary, 1958. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Andre Previn's got some very hip pals here – drummer Shelly Manne and bassist Red Mitchell – both frequent partners during the late 50s, especially on this classic run of jazz-Broadway records for Contemporary! The spirit here is very much like that of the famous My Fair Lady date made by the trio – a strong extrapolation of familiar tunes from a hit show – taken way out into instrumental jazz territory – with less thought of the core melody, and more focus on the tunes use as vehicles for jazz improvisation. Previn's piano has hardly sounded better – and more creative, both in tone and timing – an inspiration that certainly comes from Manne's inventive drum work – and titles include "Aunt Alicia's March", "I Remember It Well", "The Parisians", "She Is Not Thinking Of Me", "Thank Heaven For Little Girls", and "A Toujours".

Louis PrimaCall Of The Wildest ... LP
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $8.99
One of Louis Prima's greatest albums! The cover has a photo of Louie singing to a moose (wildest, get it!) – and that image really sets the tone for the album, which is a classic batch of swinging vocal numbers recorded with Keely Smith in tow, and backing by Sam Butera & The Witnesses. Titles include "Blow Red Blow", "The Pump Song", "When You're Smiling/Sheik Of Araby", "Birth Of the Blues", and "Closest To The Bone". LP, Vinyl record album

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

New Rayfield Reid & The MagnificentsTreat You Right ... LP
Ken Tone, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An obscure little set from the tiny Nashville label Ken Tone – and the only full-length set we've seen from Rayfield Reid & The Magnificents! Rayfield Reid sings both ballads and funky tunes – and the album's a great little bit of indie soul, with more than enough tracks to please fans of any sort of soul genre! The set's got a great 2 part funky cut called "Stick Shift" – which has a nice clavinet solo near the end – and it's also got some great ballads and mellow cuts, like the sweet soul numbers "Our Alibi" and "I Ain't Gonna Quit". Also includes the nice funk cut "Ride My Red Wagon", which has a jaunty rough ride – just like you're rolling down a hill in a tiny red wagon! Other tracks include "Dynamite Party", "I've Got Everything", and "Treat You Right". LP, Vinyl record album

Tito RodriguezWa-Pa-Cha (El Guapacha) (red cover) ... LP
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Original pressing of this late 50's effort by Tito Rodriguez. The record's got a good hard sound that's similar to some of his better RCA work, and which we like a lot more than his later recordings from the 60's. All cuts have vocals, and the band plays lots of short choppy Latin grooves. Titles include "Clapping The Guapacha", "What Happen To Pedro", "Cool Guapacha", "Chug A Lug", and "659 Tenth Avenue". And if you couldn't guess, the groove is mostly guapacha. LP, Vinyl record album

Linda's first solo record after the Stone Poneys, released in 1969, and a prime example of Linda's big, boisterous and passionate vocal style, floating over some groovy steel guitar and a more extroverted sound on the best tunes, but with some nice folkier numbers, too. It's surprising mix of moods, with lush strings and groovy organs, plus Linda's huge voice. Titles include "Baby You've Been On My Mind", "Silver Treads And Golden Needles", "Long Way Around", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "The Dolphins" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

A set that has Buddy Tate working with Pat Jenkins on trumpet, Ben Richardson on alto and baritone, and Eli Robinson on trombone – all with rhythm from Sadik Hakim on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. The group's a bit fuller than the usual Swingville session, but Hakim's gentle approach to the piano makes for a nicely personal sort of feel here – one that touches the bolder horn passages with a good degree of sensitivity, and which pushes the group into plenty of playful riffs! Titles include "Blow Low", "Idling", "Me N You", and "No Kidding". LP, Vinyl record album

New Joe TexI've Got To Do A Little Bit Better ... LP
Dial/Atlantic, 1966. Good+ ... $6.99
We couldn't think up a better title to describe the way that Joe Tex approached soul music in the 60s – giving 110% to his music, working like a dog to climb the ranks that were already filled with other budding soul stars! This album's a perfect example of Joe at his best – nearly all original tunes recorded in close collaboration with producer Buddy Killen, whose unique talents really brought out the best in Joe's honest apporach to soul music. The album includes the studio version of the classic groover "Papa Was Too", and loads of other classics like "SYSLJFM (The Letter Song)", "I've Got To Do A Little Bit Better", "Half A Mind", "I Believe I'm Gonna Make It", "Watch The One (That Brings The Bad News)', and "A Woman Sees A Hard Time (When Her Man Is Gone)".

Rufus ThomasCan't Get Away From This Dog ... CD
Stax, 1960s. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Can't get away from this dog – and who'd want to anyway, with music this funky! The set features a load of rare Rufus Thomas material done during his early years at Stax – that pre-funk period when Thomas was only recording a bit for the label, but really coming up with some amazing grooves – a style rooted in his earlier R&B modes, touched with the more modern 60s Memphis soul vibe – delivered with all the punch, power, and dash of wit that's always made Rufus so great over the years! Most material features Booker T & The MGs and The Mar-Keys backing Thomas up – and titles include "Can't Get Away From This Dog", "Show Me The Way To Go Home", "Jump Back (alt)", "I Want To Hold You", "44 Long", "Strolling Beale No 1", and "Cherry Red".

Cal TjaderCal Tjader/Stan Getz Sextet ... LP
Fantasy, 1958. Very Good- ... $9.99
A killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan Getz would take in later years – his bossa sessions, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea! The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that great bassist Scott LaFaro in his group, and when he was brought into the studio by Fantasy to meet with local talents like Cal Tjader, Eddie Duran, and Vince Guaraldi. Billy Higgins is also added on drums, giving the set a lively songlike sound that's just great. The group works incredibly well together, and it's a shame they only really gelled for this rare non-Verve session. Titles include "Big Bear", "Crow's Nest", and "Ginza Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Good+ ... $18.99
An insane record – simply insane! Mel Torme wrote the California Suite as a tribute to his home state during the glorious postwar years of growth and boom – and it contains some of the weirdest songs he ever sung! At the base, the work is driven by the same west coast jazz arrangements by Marty Paich that you'll find on some of Mel's other Bethlehem albums – but the songs can be incredibly goofy, rhyming towns in CA with catchy words and phrases, pairing Marines in San Diego with wealthy old widows, and leveling San Francisco with one of the worst puns on "Golden Gate" that we've ever heard! Still, the album's an essential one if you're a fan of Mel Torme – not only because it's got some wonderful vocals in the best parts, but also because it's a true reflection of his deep commitment to pushing the boundaries of jazz music. Tracks include "West Coast Is The Best Coast", "They Go To San Diego", "LA", and "Poor Little Extra Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

Mel TormeMel Torme & The Marty Paich Dek-Tette ... LP
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $13.99
An incredible album from Mel Torme – easily his best set ever, and a record that helped raise the bar for all other singers back in the 50s! A key part of the success of the set is the presence of Marty Paich as an arranger – as Marty swings the whole thing with a fluid groove that's really amazing, and which is a style that hadn't ever been done on record this well before. The group is filled with hip west coast players like Pete Candoli, Jack Montrose, Bob Cooper, and Bud Shank – all of whom really soar together, and elevate Mel's vocals from the older velvet fog mode, into a leaner, hipper style that's really tremendous! Titles include "The Blues", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Lulu's Back In Town", "The Carioca", "Sing For Your Supper", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album

Mel TormeThat's All ... LP

One of the greatest, straightest sets from Mel Torme – an all-classic batch of tracks that's quite different than his other album for Columbia! Torme checks in as a totally committed, totally serious jazz vocalist here – with an impeccable approach to the music that puts this album right up there with the best work of Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett – very mature, but very personal too – in a way that really transforms familiar tunes. Arrangements are by Robert Mersey, who handles Torme with the best care he's had since the classic 50s recordings with Marty Paich – and titles include "PS I Love You", "The Nearness Of You", "Haven't We Met", and "Ho Ba La La".

Tuff City/Soul Tay Shus, Mid 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Some of the best material we've ever heard from Andre Williams' heady 60s funk days – including some tracks that were initially released as singles on the tiny Duo label in Chicago, plus a bunch more that have never been reissued at all! In the setting for the sides, Andre's working at his hardest and heaviest – really keeping things raw and hard throughout, even on the numbers that feature vocals. There's a number of really great instrumentals on the album – tunes that have the rough, ready, and nicely messed up approach of some of Andre's best Chess work of the time – and which are a seminal bridge between the soul instrumental style of the 60s, and the heavier funk of the 70s! Titles include "Pass The Biscuits 67", "Andre's Jam", "Andre's Fender Rhodes Groove", "Thunder Thighs", "Red Beans (aka Bo Hog Stomp)", "Andre's Thang", and "Daniel Boone" by Andre Williams – plus Williams numbers with other artists that include "Can You Deal With That" by Jo Ann Garrett, "If I Didn't Love You" by The Profiles, "Baby Baby Oh Baby" by Jimmy Ed Trio, and "I'm The Rock" by The Velvet Hammer. 16 tracks in all – 4 more than the vinyl version.

The track list is full of surprises – many tracks we've never seen reissued at all – and titles include "Rats In My Room" by Leoni Anderson, "Waltz In Orbit" by Ray Cathode, "The High Life" by Guy Warren with Red Garland, "Gossip Calypso" by Bernard Cribbins, "How Is The Weather In Paris" by Alain Romans, "Naima" by Double Six Of Paris, "Tic Tic Tic" by Robert Mitchum, "Machine 1" by Terry Dwyer, and "Jive Baby On A Saturday Night" by The Jellies.

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!

Smoking work from the early years of soul music – that time when the style was just coming into its own, through equal parts jazz, R&B, blues, and gospel! The cuts here are those which might be called R&B in another setting, but definitely work together to inform the roots of soul – all in the style that's carried on by the later 60s reissues on the Outta Sight label. Lots of the cuts have the feel of some of the best Jazzman/Jukebox Jam reissues in recent years – a very different take on R&B than previous generations of collectors have explored. Titles include "I Get The Feeling" by Eli Lee, "Let's Start A Romance" by Little Joe Hinton, "Hard Times" by Jacki Ross, "Cherringale" by Ed Townsend, "Twist 62" by Jerry McCain, "My Book" by Bruce Cloud, "The Girl That Radiates The Charm" by June Alexander, and "Dynamite" by Big Jay Bush & The Houserockers.

Our favorite volume so far in Kent's tribute to the legendary UK Sue label – and a great little collection that's overflowing with soulful tracks from the 60s! The premise is a bit obscure to most American listeners – as the CD brings together tracks that were licensed to UK indie Sue Records, for English release in the 60s – but the music more than speaks for itself, no matter what the setting! Sue did a mighty fine job of moving past the hits, and brought a heck of a lot of great American indie soul over the Atlantic back in its day – as you'll hear in this fab 25 track set that includes the cuts "Gimme Gimme" by ZZ Hill, "Don't Mess With My Man" by Irma Thomas, "Stronger" by Thelma Jones, "Crying Days Are Over" by The Kelly Brothers, "What Did You Tell This Girl Of Mine" by OV Wright, "Believe In Me" by Jerry Butler, "That Did It" by Bobby Bland, "Incense" by the Anglos, "Your Red Wagon" by Donnie Elbert, and "Before It's Too Late" by Jackie Day.
