VariousJourney To The Dawn – Illuminating Jazz From Theresa Records ... CD
Theresa/Temposphere (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
A lost batch of soulful jazz from a massively overlooked source – the mighty Theresa Records, home to some really great recordings at the end of the 70s! Theresa was a tiny company formed in Oakland, CA at the end of the 70s – a spiritual heir to the sound of Impulse, Flying Dutchman, and other 70s powerhouse soul jazz labels – with a sound that was directly encapsulated in the label's own recordings of Pharoah Sanders at the time! After a few years of inactivity on the recording scene after his seminal sides for Impulse, Pharoah made a strong re-emergence on Theresa – working in a sweet style of soul jazz that was also picked up by some of the label's other strong artists. This excellent set was compiled in collaboration with Gilles Peterson – and features some of the hippest, most soulful tracks to come out on Theresa – work that takes off from the sound of Pharoah's earlier albums, into a whole new realm of expression! Titles include "Heart Is A Melody", "Rejoice", and "You've Got To Have Freedom" by Pharoah Sanders; "Samba" and "Pippin" by Ed Kelly; "Use Your Hands" and "Levels Of Consciousness" by Babatunde & Phenomena; and "Hip Funk" by Bishop Norman Williams & The One Mind Experience. 11 tracks in all!

New Joe BonnerNew Beginnings ... LP
Theresa, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavily spiritual work from pianist Joe Bonner – a set of solo tracks that flows with warmth and imagination only hinted at on some of his 70s sides! The tunes are all quite long, and have Joe carving out a post-Coltrane, post-Tyner approach to the keys that makes for some beautifully flowing tracks. Joe plays both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes on the set, and singer Laurie Antonioli lends her voice for a wonderful wordless performance on the seminal "quiet moments" track "Soft Breezes". Other titles include "New Beginnings", "Ode To Trane", "The Revolution", and "A Child Is Born". LP, Vinyl record album

New Pharoah SandersHeart Is A Melody ... CD
Theresa/Evidence, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastically soulful set from Pharoah – recorded in the early 80s, with his quartet that included Idris Muhammad on drums, John Heard on bass, and William Henderson on piano. The session is live, and the overall feel is easy and mellow – still searching, as in the best mode of Pharoah's work for Impulse, but with a warmer approach that shows him mellowing a bit with age – or as we might put it, figuring out the best aspects of his style, and focusing on those. Includes the sublime "Heart Is A Melody Of Time", a great vocal number that builds in a "Creater Has A Master Plan" sort of way. Also features the highlife-tinged "Goin To Africa", a sweet reading of Coltrane's "Naima", and the tracks "Ole" and "Rise N Shine" CD

Kenautis Smith & BlackspadeMotivational Tool ... CD
All Natural, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99
Kanautis Smith and Blackspade team up for All Natural, Inc! There's often a soul music reverent vibe on records that come on on All Natural, and this one succeeds strongly on that front – as well as holding up as one of the finer producer/MC co-headling records we've heard in a while. There's a healthly guest roster of rhymers and singers, but it all fits together very well. Includes "After All" feat Theresa Payne, "Work Out" with Thaione Davis & Brandin, ""All In My Mind" with Naledge, "Stll Remains" with Teresa Jenee & Race, "Greatest Of All", "Look Around" with Ari Lourdes & Demetrius Upchurch, "Lay It Down", "Sick" feat All Natural, "The Closing", "No Name" with Fresco & White Owl and "Frank Jackson.

Mundell LoweBilly Jack (alternate version) ... LP
Billy Jack Records, 1971. Sealed ... $7.99
This is a strange 2nd pressing of the Billy Jack soundtrack – issued on the Billy Jack label, which might have been an imprint owned by Mundell Lowe. The records feature overall scoring by Mundell Lowe, with jazzy instrumentals that are trying to have a serious "southwest" sound to them – plus lots of vocal tracks with a similar folksy style to the film's big hit "One Tin Soldier", included on this album. That one's sung by the group Coven, but the rest are sung by lesser-known singers like Lynn Baker, Theresa Kelly, and Gwen Smith. What a weird time to be watching movies! LP, Vinyl record album

Corky McClerkinSearchin For The Soul ... LP
WinCor, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A classic set of soul jazz from Chicago – a rare indie date recorded in the early 80s, but with a tight and swinging feel that's more 70s jazz funk than you might think! Corky's on Yamaha keyboards, and he's backed by a hip group of Chicago players that includes Curtis Prince on drums, Artee Duke Payne on saxes, and Stephen Harris on guitars – all working together in a tightly rhythmic sound with some slight spiritual undercurrents – almost in the same territory as James Mason on his legendary record from a few years before! As with that set, there's a bit of polish here, but never too much – a balance that makes the record a wonderfully mature record with a depth that keeps it going for years. Byron Woods sings lead vocals on the album's jazz dance classic "Searching For Soul" – and a few other tracks feature Theresa Davis on lead vocals. Other titles include "Everything Must Change", "Open Wide", "Passion", "Jive Mama T", "Off C", and "Mirror Mirror". LP, Vinyl record album

New DVDChi-Sound II – Steppin Around The World (DVD) ... DVD
Chicago Steppers, 1999. New Copy DVD ... Out Of Stock
Recent grooves, but often done with a richly classic feel – one that recalls the waning years of the Chicago Soul scene at the start of the 80s! The package is an effort from the re-activated Chi-Sound label – and it takes up where Carl Davis modern soul imprint left off – a smooth, mellow approach to contemporary R&B that's served up with plenty of class, and pointed directly at the new wave of dancefloor steppers in Chicago! Vocals here are by a variety of different singers, but there's a unified feel to most of the music – an approach that stays mostly in the mellower side of the spectrum, but still maintains a good sense of groove – one that comes from gently stepping beats, warm keyboard parts, and some slight jazzy touches to class things up a bit. Titles include "Soul" by Barry J, "Steppin All Over The World" by Gold Boy, "1st Fruit" by Stephen Dawson, "Steppin Into Darkness" by Paris, "Hang Time" by Kozii, "Better Step Up "by Theresa Davis, "High Steppin" by Sherry Scott, and "Time & Time Again" by Nicole Steel. DVD is an older instructional DVD on stepping – with the original 8 count instructional video from 1999, plus more! DVD
