Manny AlbamJazz Greats Of Our Time Vol 1 ... LP
Coral, 1957. Very Good .... $11.99
A great large group project from arranger Manny Albam – one that teams him up with "jazz greats" of the east coast scene, in a really hard-swinging set of tracks that showcase some wonderful solo work! Manny's working here with a set of players who are well-chosen for their ability to work strongly in an ensemble, yet also break out with strong solo work when the moment comes – and the lineup includes Gerry Mulligan, Al Cohn, Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, Bob Brookmeyer, and Art Farmer – with rhythm by the trio of Hank Jones, Milt Hinton, and Osie Johnson. The tracks are long, with more room for soloing than usual on this sort of album – and nearly all of them are originals by Manny. Titles include "Minor Matters", "Blues From Neither Coast", and "Latined Fracture". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear, partially split top and bottom seams, and some light stains.)

Bobby BareHard Time Hungrys ... LP
RCA, 1975. Very Good+ .... $13.99
A mid 70s album by Bobby Bare – the ambitious, concept-driven Hard Time Hungrys – a worthy effort from one the most unique voices and personalities of his era! This album is heavy with songs written by Bare family friend and frequent songwriting partner Shel Silverstein. Johnny Cash gets all the mainstream attention for collaborating with Shel on "A Boy Named Sue", but Shel and Bare have a far richer collaborative history together. Home For The Hungrys tells the story of the impoverished, with the title track, "Back Home In Huntsville Again", "Bottles And Boxes", "Truck Driver, Truck Driver", "The Unemployment Line" and more.

Charles BradleyNo Time For Dreaming (plus download) ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2011. New Copy .... $13.99 15.98
Gritty, powerful raw soul from Charles Bradley – the full length debut from the 62-year-old Brooklyn singer – backed perfectly by The Menahan Street Band! It's incredible, a record that sounds just as rawly emotional and impeccably soulful in 2011 as it would have in 1971 – much like the work Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, there's no mistaking this for anything but the real deal. Rough hewn in beautifully so – with perfect, funky backing by team Menahan. A timeless treasure! Titles include "In You (I Found A Love)", "I Believe In Your Love", "The Telephone Song", "Golden Rule", "How Long", "Trouble In The Land", "Since Our Last Goodbye", "Heartaches And Pain", "The World" and more.

Rusty BryantUntil It's Time For You To Go ... LP
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A richly soulful album from tenor giant Rusty Bryant – and a set that mixes his older Prestige Records mode with the larger electric styles of the CTI generation! The group's bigger than on most of Bryant's other records of the time – some larger charts arranged by Horace Ott, who had a lot of background in soul and R&B, and brings all of those elements to work nicely on the grooves. Rusty's still out front soloing nicely – in a manner that recalls Stanley Turrentine on CTI or Hank Crawford on Kudu – and other players include Ott himself on keyboards, Wilbur Baxcomb on bass, George Devens on vibes, David Spinozza on guitar, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Funky cuts include "The Hump Bump" and "Ga Gang Gang Goong" – and other titles include "Draggin The Line", "Red Eye Special", and "Troubles". LP, Vinyl record album

Alvin Cash & The RegistersTwine Time ... LP
Mar V Lus, 1965. Sealed .... $18.99
The classic album of short funky Chicago soul dance tracks, recorded for Mar V Lus as the follow-up to Alvin's huge "Twine Time" single. Most of the cuts on here have the same sort of groove, and most of them were written by either Andre Williams or Monk Higgins, with the kind of hard soul approach they were taking at the time with Chicago soul. Tracks include "Burn Just A Hair", "Do It One More Time", "Barracuda", "Hawk Eye", and "Bump". A potentially great record that's marred only by the rough recording quality of the Mar V Lus studios – every copy we've come across has sounded somewhat distorted and dirty, regardless of how clean the vinyl is .

Hard-edged fusion group featuring Pete Robinson on keyboards and Bruce Cale, the great Australian bassist.

Cuts include "To Miles", "The One Who Knows", and "Crimson Sunsets". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time ... LP
Dakar, 1970. Very Good (reissue).... $5.99
The second album from Chicago soul legend Tyrone Davis – and every bit as wonderful as his first! Like that set, this one bounces along on a wave of well cast Chisoul arrangements – penned by Tom Washington and Willie Henderson, with a great mix of the sweet and the rough – bubbling under with a heavier rhythm than you might expect for such a session. The whole set skips along with a sound that's totally tight, but also plenty darn righteous – and Tyrone's voice crackles with honesty and feeling on the album's entire set list. Tracks include the mega-hit "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", plus "Undying Love", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", and "Let Me Back In". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the few albums cut by this oft-overlooked southern soul diva – and one that mixes Muscle Shoals production with some nice uptown touches! Produced by Jerry Williams, Jr., aka Swamp Dogg! While the title comes of a bit flamboyantly, in truth, this record is an honest, personal, and earthy southern soul should-be classic. It's not only a personal triumph for Doris Duke, it's also one of greatest Swamp Dogg-produced records! Includes "I Wish I Could Sleep", "It Sure Was Fun", "He's Everything I Need", "Since I Fell For You", "Let Love Touch Us Now", "Bad Water", and a cool cover of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix".

Bill FayTime Of The Last Persecution (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Deram/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy .... $18.99 21.98
The heady second album from Bill Fay – much more introspective and moodier than his first outing for Deram, and a session done in tight collaboration with British guitar legend Ray Russell! Russell's got Fay working here with a much smaller group than on the first album – a collection of jazz-influenced players that includes Nick Evans on trombone, Tony Roberts on reeds, and Alan Rushton on drums – all working with Russell's guitar in an intimate, slightly folksy setting. Fay's songwriting and vocals are darker than before – as can easily be told from the titles of tunes like "Don't Let My Marigolds Die", "Dust Filled Room", "Pictures Of Adolf Again", and "Til The Christ Come Back". But somehow, Fay manages to pull the whole thing off beautifully – with none of the cliches or heavy-handed styles you might expect, really working in a transcendent mode that reminds us of the best of early Leonard Cohen.

Gentlemen & Their LadiesParty Time ... LP
Jean, 1974. New Copy (reissue).... $11.99
A classic underground funk set from the 70s – and a record that definitely lives up to the party time promised in the title! The group have a really festive approach to funk – still as hard-hitting and sharp-edged as other indie contemporaries – but willing to open up and push things with a live sort of energy too – a vibe that's a bit like a funkier take on Jr Walker & The All-Stars – especially given the strong use of tenor on the tunes! The set's got two very long jamming numbers – "Party Bump (parts 1 & 2)" and "One More Time (parts 1 & 2)" – and other titles are all pretty nice too – including "You're Gonna Need", "Now Generation", and "Party Strut". Produced by George Kerr, arranged by Bert Keyes, and even the version of "Amazing Grace" comes out pretty nice too! LP, Vinyl record album

Al GreenTruth N Time ... LP
Hi Records, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $5.99
Al Green's last secular album for Hi Records – but still a nice little cooker that's overflowing with Memphis soul! As with Green's previous set for Hi, the album's produced by Al himself, and not Willie Mitchell – in a style that's a bit rougher, chunkier, and almost funkier than the sound that Mitchell had been giving Al as the 70s moved on. Tunes have a nice snapping feel overall, and a lot heavier soul vibe than you might expect for the time – making the record a nice lost sleeper in Green's classic Hi Records catalog! Titles include "King Of All", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Happy Days", "Blow Me Down", "Lo & Behold", "Wait Here", "Truth N Time", and "To Sir With Love". LP, Vinyl record album

ImpressionsIt's About Time ... LP
Cotillion, 1976. Sealed .... $3.99
The Impressions first album for Cotillion, cut after a great 70s run on Curtom – but one that's done with a sound that still carries on the groove nicely! The more righteous tones of the earlier work are shaken loose a bit, to be replaced by a fuller approach to the music built from arrangements by HB Barnum, Gene Page, and Gil Askey – a bit more LA than Chicago, but with a soaringly soulful quality that almost recalls the sound of The Spinners during their best Philly years. As with that work, the harmonies here are all right on the money, and get plenty of space to sparkle amidst the full strings and tight rhythms – and new group member Nate Evans really brings a deep sense of soul to the group's work. Many tunes were written by the team of Mervin Seals and Melvin Steals – and titles include "I'm A Fool For Love", "Same Old Heartaches", "This Time", "Stardust", "I Need You", and "What Might Have Been".

The group's fronted by keyboardist Reggie McCants, who wrote most of the songs and also sings – and they've got a sound that's professional, but never too slick – very much like one of the few rare combos you might catch in the clubs during these more obscure soul years in Chicago. Titles include "One Shoe Off", "Just In Time", "JP For You", "My Funny Valentine", and "Minute". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul JabaraKeeping Time ... LP
Casablanca, 1978. Sealed .... $0.99
A nice set from singer, songwriter and stage presence Paul Jabara – still probably best remembered for "Last Dance", which he wrote for Donna Summer – here with a unique set of his own on Casablanca! The label was making huge strides in putting disco into the mainstream at the time, and you can certainly see how Jabara must have looked like a sure bet. Whether it's a dancefloor soul vessel or a character-driven story song, there's no shaking the strength of the songwriting track after track – collaborating on that with producer Bob Esty on most tunes. Good natured disco & pop soul all the way! Includes "Didn't The Time Go Fast", "Saturday Matinee", "Trapped In A Stairway", "Dancin' (Lift Your Spirits Higher)", "Last Dance" (in a more ballady mode than the Donna Summer version that works really well), "Pleasure Island", "Something's Missing (In My Life)" and more.

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsSoul Time ... LP
Daptone, 2011. New Copy .... $13.99 14.99
Damn damn damn – maybe the funkiest album ever from Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings! The group have always been great, but there's something here that goes even farther than usual – an especially funky snap on the drums at the bottom, even on more laidback tunes – and a stone classic approach to funky soul, one that's definitely been honed to a "T" through their important work on the road during the previous few years! And Sharon Jones is great – with vocals that are way deeper and much longer-lasting than any rehab outpatient wannabe – sending home these tunes with a quality that may well pass most of her classic female soul inspirations from back in the day. And even though the set brings together some older singles and other odd bits, it's got a rock-solid punch that makes it a very unified album throughout! Titles include "Settling In", "I'm Not Gonna Cry", "When I Come Home", "Ain't No Chimneys In The Projects", "New Shoes", "Without A Trace", and "Inspiration Information". LP, Vinyl record album

New Anthony JosephTime ... LP
Naive/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $26.99
Anthony Joseph has always sounded great – but this time around he's got some stellar help from Meshell Ndegeocello – who wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album! The result is the best material we've ever heard from Joseph – a completely righteous record that gives his wonderful vocals a whole new sense of focus and pride – set up in backings that have an even heavier, funkier quality – and which really befits Anthony's 70s-style blend of soul, jazz, and funk! Meshell plays some mighty funky bass on the record, and also sings too – and the instrumentation is served up by a tight combo with a very lean feel. The music is every bit as great on record as it sounds on paper – a really timeless record that's bound to turn on whole new generations to Joseph's music! Titles include "Hustle To Live", "Tamarind", "Heir", "Alice Of The River", "Joy", "Botanique", and "Michael X". LP, Vinyl record album

Evelyn King is in solid 80s groove territory here – working with a fair bit of beats and keyboards – and getting help in the studio from T Life and Rene & Angela! The former sweetness of King's poppier hits is nicely suppressed here amidst the fuzzy guitars and flashy electronics – and the beats have a definite full-on approach that's a real change from before, and which almost makes the vocals hit the backburner at times. But Evelyn still has plenty of room to add her own charm to the music – especially on the few mellower cuts, but also on the hooks of the catchier upbeat tunes too. Titles include "Slow Down", "Your Personal Touch", "I'm Scared", "High Horse", "Chemistry Of Love", and "A Change Is Gonna Come". LP, Vinyl record album

SOUL, 1974. Near Mint- .... $2.99
One of the last Gladys Knight albums for Motown – and seemingly a collection of work from a variety of different sessions, possibly put together to compete with her shift to Buddah Records in the mid 70s! The groove here is pretty great, often in a mode that's a bit more uptempo and righteous than some of the mellower Gladys Knight work that was dominating her hits at the time. Arrangements are by Wade Marcus, Artie Butler, Paul Riser, and others – and the record's got a warm glow without being too sleepy. Titles include "Ease Me To The Ground", "How Can You Say That Ain't Love", "Between Her Goodbye & My Hello", "We've Got Such A Mellow Love", "It's All Over But The Shouting", "Master Of My Mind", and "It Takes A Whole Lot Of Human Feeling".

Laidback vocal jazz from Kim Parker – working here with some really great backings from the Kenny Drew Trio! The tunes are a bit longer than the usual vocal date of this nature – leaving plenty of room for Drew to bring his own piano into play too – and rhythm is from the great team of Mads Vinding on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums, who've backed Kenny on plenty of other great records over the years! Parker's got a warm way of hitting the tunes – never too traditionally torchy, even though most numbers are standards – and titles include "Havin Myself A Time", "Paris Is A Lonely Town", "A Sleepin Bee", "Everything I Love", "Azure", "Rain Go Away", and "The Underdog".

Norma WinstoneEdge Of Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue).... $29.99
One of the greatest albums ever from vocalist Norma Winstone – a set that really helps bring her talents into sharp focus! Like Karin Krog, Annette Peacock, Sheila Jordan, and other female jazz singers of her generation, Winstone was always pushing the boundaries of her craft – taking a style that began with a simple jazz-based approach, and turning it into a whole new array of sounds and voicings! This landmark album from 1972, one of Winstone's first on her own (although she'd sung to great strength on some of Mike Westbrook's Deram sessions), features the singer moving into territory that has distinct touches of progressive jazz rock, but which also retains a mellow sense of melody – despite an easy temptation to get too overblown. Arrangements are handled by Neil Ardley, John Surman, and John Taylor – and titles include "Song Of Love", "Erebus", "Shadows", "Perkins Landing", and "Edge Of Time". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousElaste Vol 4 – Meta Disco & Proto House –Originals Ahead Of Their Time – Compiled By Dompteur Mooner ... LP
Compost (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2LP .... $22.99
One of the coolest entries in this series so far – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the great music that Elaste has already given us! The set pushes past the boundaries of the dancefloor – to focus on cosmic cuts that might have gotten some play with DJs, but also really unlock a whole new world of listening too – moving from simpler electronic disco into a range of rhythms and sonic experiments that still sound as fresh today as they did when first cut back in the late 70s and early 80s! Some tunes have surprising warm elements, others have some starker touches that really set the tone for later techno – but are much simpler overall – and far more effective, too. Titles include "Gluttony" by Rinder & Lewis, "It's Heavy (Dompteur Mooner edit)" by Barbara Norris, "XXXO" by Equip, "Notice Me (notice the house mix)" by Sandee, "Beat It" by Disco D, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Cybotron, "Shake The Mind" by C Cat Trance, and "Raga Madhuvanti" by Charanjit Singh.

Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue).... Around November 5, 2013 (delayed)
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – the seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one – working at the end of the 60s in an incredible blend of jazz and more traditional Egyptian-styled sounds – a blend that comes across with all the exotic feel of the pyramids at dawn, but which manages to groove like some of the best funky work from America at the time! Instrumentation includes lot of percussion, heavy piano and horns, and some especially great flute on most tracks – all coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we've heard before. This collection is the first time that this music has been brought together officially, all with the kind of top-shelf production and packaging we've come to expect from the Art Yard label!

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 Brothers JohnsonRight On Time ... LP
A&M, 1977. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky classic from the Brothers Johnson – sweet funky soul, done with a polish few could match! The pair are still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and the record's filled with lots of tight jazzy grooves that certainly show Quincy's touch – and which set the record apart from a number of similar mainstream funk records flooding the market at the time. The standout cut on the album is their great reading of "Strawberry Letter 23" – originally done by Shuggie Otis in a stoner version, but nicely stripped down here by the Bros, and given a very nice pop psychedelic soul twist! Other tracks include "Right On Time", "Q", "Free Yourself, Be Yourself", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dave BrubeckTime Out ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty of waves with their creative yet swinging approaches to modern jazz – heard on a number of successful albums for Fantasy and Columbia in the 50s. But with this record, they really knocked one out of the park – blending Desmond's cool alto, Brubeck's unusual piano phrasing, Joe Morello's melodic drum work, and Eugene Wright's pulsating bass into a waltzing, almost modal groove that crossed over to many camps at the time! The classics "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo Ala Turk" were both hits on their own – but all titles are great, and include "Kathy's Waltz", "Strange Medow Lark", "Everybody's Jumpin", and "Pick Up Sticks".

We always used to pass up Gary Burton's early records, but as the years pass, we find that we like them more and more. Why? Well, because Gary's unique approach to the vibes has a cool subtle sound that's very groovy at this point, and which hasn't yet fallen into the indulgences of his later records. He's not funky, or hard-hitting, but he has these amazing spacey sounds that work well with his small group that includes Steve Swallow on bass and Larry Bunker on percussion.

New Ornette Coleman & Prime TimeVirgin Beauty ... LP
Portrait, 1988. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant later work from Ornette Coleman – quite adventurous stuff, too! By the late 80s, the shock of the new of Ornette's harmolodic sound had worn off enough that majors like CBS/Portrait were more than willing to invest in it – but for every catchy modern groove here, there's a left turn into more subtly daring territory! A few tracks feature Jerry Garcia – "3 Wishes", "Singing In The Shower", and "Desert Player" – and his jazz-folk-psych improv guitar style is a pretty wild match for Ornette and Prime Time. We didn't give those cuts nearly enough credit to over the years! The Garcia-less tracks show Ornette's awareness of hip hop and funky fusion, but he doesn't cop to trends. It's more that he's showing his continuing relevance in the 80s landscape. The group features Denard Coleman on percussion and keys, Calvin Weston on drums, Al MacDowell and Chris Walker on bass, Bern Nix and Charlee Ellerbe on guitars, and Ornette on alto, trumpet and violin. Other tunes include "Happy Hour", "Bourgeois Boogie", and "Spelling The Alphabet". LP, Vinyl record album

New Karen DaltonIn My Own Time ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Enigmatic folk rock and soulful bluesy vocals from Karen Dalton – her legendary lost 1971 album that's credited with inspiring some the most idiosyncratic work by folk rock superstars and contemporary freak folk heroes alike! Karen was a fixture on the 60s NY folk scene – Dylan even gives her props in his Chronicles Vol 1 memoirs – but she rarely recorded. Her voice carries a huge Billie Holiday influence – but the delivery is wholly unique in her earthy folk phrasing, a real dip back into Harry Smith territory. Her guitar and banjo picking is strong, too! In My Own Time was recorded for Paramount at the end of 1970 and beginning of '71, with really rich and surprisingly soulful backing on an interesting selection of material written or popularized by Dylan & The Band, George Jones, Paul Butterfield, and even a folksy soul take on "When A Man Loves A Woman". Light In The Attic shines a huge light for this reverential reissue – pristinely remastered with notes by Lenny Kaye, Nick Cave and Devendra Banhart. Other tracks include "Something On Your Mind", "In My Own Dream", the traditional "Katie Cruel", "One Night Of Love" and "Are You Leaving For The Country". LP, Vinyl record album

Like that set, this one bounces along on a wave of well cast Chisoul arrangements – penned by Tom Washington and Willie Henderson, with a great mix of the sweet and the rough – bubbling under with a heavier rhythm than you might expect for such a session. The whole set skips along with a sound that's totally tight, but also plenty darn righteous – and Tyrone's voice crackles with honesty and feeling on the album's entire set list. Tracks include the mega-hit "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", plus "Undying Love", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", and "Let Me Back In". LP, Vinyl record album

ABC, 1979. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the excellent recordings made by The Dramatics at ABC – great group soul gems that are sometimes overlooked because they didn't yield as many hits as earlier sets – but which are stellar records nonetheless! This one's got all the right elements firmly in place – killer production by Don Davis, and smooth but real harmonies from LJ Reynolds, Ron Banks, and the rest of the group. There's a few tracks that hit a smooth sort of groove that might be tagged as "disco" – but which is really just an extension of the super-dope mode that the group used in earlier years – and which has a lot more to offer than just a cheap dancefloor cash in. Titles include "Life Is Just A Playground", "Love Birds", "A Marriage On Paper Only", "I'm Hooked On You", "That's My Favorite Song", "I Think About You", and "I Just Wanna Dance With You".

Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Surprisingly great work from Full Force – a set that seems to only get better with the passage of time, set apart nicely from most of its 80s soul contemporaries with a good deal of homegrown charm! Sure, there's some pretty heavy beats here – and sure, the sound is a few notches towards commercial/crossover territory – but there's also a really honest appeal to the record, a kind of intimate group feel that's an update of 70s funky groups – taken more strongly into an electric 80s style! Vocals come through nicely on some of the best tracks, and relax into the groove on some of the others – and titles include "Unfaithful", "Never Had Another Love", "Temporary Love Thing", "Old Flames Never Die", "Child's Play (parts 1 & 2)", and "Chain Me To The Night".

The Bar-Kays handle some of the backings, and they're also quite good here too – much rootsier at times than on their own records, but still with a hint of funk as well. Titles include "Ghetto Train", "I'll Just Call You Honey", "Since You Don't Want Me", "I'll Love You Until The End", "Be Good To Me Baby", "Ain't That Loving You", and "You Were Made For Me".

New Henry ManciniHigh Time ... LP
RCA, 1960. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked score from Henry Mancini – one that shows a slightly wider range of sound than his bigger hits of the time! The record's a great blend of gentle jazz, warm rhythms, and a few standout tracks that get a bit more playful – all put together with the sense of class, space, and timing that you'd expect from other Mancini work of the late 50s – and played by a group that has some similarly jazzy touches! There's a freshness here that's really great – not just because most tunes are unfamiliar, but also because Hank changes things up nicely throughout the set – really making for a nice balance in the music. The album includes the Cahn/Van Heusen number "The Second Time Around", sung here by a chorus – but the best bits are the Mancini originals, instrumentals that include "The Old College Try Cha Cha", "Tiger", "The Dean Speaks", "So Neat", "Moon Talk", "A Mild Blast", and "The Nutty Professor".

The record's filled with everything that's great about the Monk/Rouse team in these years – an incredible interplay between sax and piano, served up over the sorts of angular tunes that Monk had been putting forth for years, but somehow at a level that's even more perfect, more "Monkish" than before! Other members of the group are Butch Warren on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Memories Of You", "Brake's Sake", "Stuffy Turkey", and "Shuffle Boil".

One of Sonny Rollins' classic sides for Blue Note from the 50s – all of which are excellent! For the set, Sonny's working in a relatively free quartet format, with Wynton Kelly on piano, and rhythm from the team of Doug Watkins and Philly Joe Jones. Overall, the session's got a bit more of a boppish edge than some of Sonny's more modern sides from the time, but that's no problem with us, especially given the fresh touches on tracks like "Tune Up", "Asiatic Raes", and "Blues For Philly Joe". If you've ever needed a record to convince you how great Rollins is, this might just be the one! LP, Vinyl record album

Tyner's a musician who really took off in strides during the 70s – and his free sense of energy and life really seems to set McLean's horn on fire – at least on the tracks that feature Jackie on board. Part of the album just has Tyner's piano in a group with Ron Carter or Marcus Miller on bass, and Al Foster on drums and Steve Thornton on percussion – but other numbers bring in McLean for some soaring lines on alto, plus a bit of trumpet from Jon Faddis too.

A stone classic from Black Heat – the group's second album, and even tighter than their first! The group's size has dropped a bit between albums – but that only helps them cook even more – dropping a bit of the horn section from before, which allows even more emphasis on their razor-sharp rhythms! There's a slight hint of Afro Funk in some of the rhythms – and the keyboards cook with lots of sweet clavinet lines – mixed with a production style that features some bubbling electronic elements that remind us a lot of that crazy "magic bag" that was used by the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band. That group might be a good point of comparison, but the band also shares a lot of Kool & The Gang's ensemble funk style – especially on their cover of "Love The Life You Live" – which they burn here beautifully!

By this point, Change had really evolved past being just a studio project, into a rock-solid soul group with a definite ear for a groove – particularly the tight, lean sort of rhythms that percolated in the post-Chic era – making a perfect fit for the slightly jazzy production of the record. Bassbits and beats drive most of the rhythms, but there's still a nice degree of warmth – and vocals are handled by Deborah Cooper, James Robinson, Rick Brennan, and Timmy Allen – who each seem to get their moment in the spotlight, furthering the well-rounded sound of the record. Titles include "Magical Night", "Angel", "This Is Your Time", "Stay N Fit", "Tell Me Why", "Got To Get Up", and "Don't Wait Another Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Wild early work from avant jazz genius Joe McPhee – and a set that's actually pretty darn funky too! This rare indie release features 3 long tracks – two of which were recorded live, with a tight combo that includes a very funky drummer! The album kicks off with the hard wailing "Nation Time", which begins with a shout from Joe, and which rolls into a vamping modal groove (almost Pharoah Sanders-ish) filled with spiritual tenor work from McPhee, and some nice electric piano that sounds very off-kilter – funky, but unusual too. Next up is "Shakey Jake", an excellent 13 minute funk number – with bubbling organ, vamping rhythms, and a nice extended jazz dance groove – one of the rare tunes that has kept the album at the top of collectors' lists for years! And last up is "Scorpio's Dance", a pretty raw and somber track, with a nice open-ended loft jazz quality – balancing things out with a bit of avant energy. LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet reeds and lots of Fender Rhodes – a lost 70s album from the Detroit underground, and one of the best-ever sets from saxophonist Larry Nozero! Larry's working here in close collaboration with keyboardist Dennis Tini – whose Rhodes and Clavinet work really make the album sparkle, giving the whole thing a spacey sound that really suits Larry's long-spun lines on flute, tenor, and soprano sax! The style is mellow, yet never sleepy – a vibe that's even deeper than the CTI sound at its best, and served up here with an underground style that really keeps a sharp edge throughout. Added strings seep into the mix at times, almost giving the record a soundtrack vibe at points – but most of the best action is from the interplay of Nozero and Tini, who dominate nearly every tune. Tini uses overdubs to create these scatting voices at a few points – and titles include "Tony", "Chronicle Of The Murdered House", "Tune For LN", "Two Worlds", "All The Things You Are", and "Impressions Of My Lady".

Norwood's got a rich style that's definitely deepens the soul of the record – and titles include "Bout Dat Time", "For You", "Can't Be Alone", "Kicking", "Surrender", and "Pick Up The Pieces".

New WhispersJust Gets Better With Time ... LP
Solar, 1987. Used .... Out Of Stock
A late 80s winner from The Whispers – one of the few 70s groups who really found a way to keep themselves going strong into the next decade! The album gave the group their super-huge hit "Rock Steady" – possibly their biggest mainstream success ever – and it's got the group working with the team of Babyface and Reid, in a snapping kind of soul that's partially pop, but which almost hints at new jack at points. Titles include "Rock Steady", "I Want You", "No Pain No Gain", "In The Mood", "Just Gets Better With Time", "Love's Calling", and "Give It To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jack McDuffGoodnight, It's Time To Go (aka Sanctified!) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Used .... Out Of Stock
A pivotal album for Brother Jack McDuff – and one that has him cleaning the sound of his Hammond a bit – moving into the lean, clear tone that would dominate his work for most of the 60s! There's a great sense of focus here – one that moves past simple R&B-influenced organ lines, and into a more confident jazz-based mode – one that's starting to unlock the unique rhythm and solo inflections that made McDuff so great. The group here is excellent too – with a very young Grant Green on guitar, Harold Vick on tenor, and Joe Thomas on drums. The tracks are long, with some nice flourishes that make the record shine nicely – and titles include "I'll Be Seeing You", "McDuff Speaking", "A Smooth One", and "Sanctified Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue lable pressing. Vinyl has some marks that click. Cover has light wear and a bit of aging.)

New Mighty FireNo Time For Masquerading ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used .... Out Of Stock
A wonderful debut full length from Mighty Fire – a group whose roots lead back to lots of previous work for Motown, and as The Flakes – stepping out here as a tight quintet with a wonderfully focused sound! Despite the 80s date of the record, the sound feels like the best combo funky soul from the previous decade – really sharp and on the money, but never commercial or chart-sounding at all – a perfect balance of so many wonderful warm elements, with the kind of jazzy touches you might hear in later groups like Incognito or Brand New Heavies. Guitarist Mel Bolton handles the arrangements, and most of the songwriting too – and trumpeter Harry Kim handles the horns, with the same warm vibe he'd later bring to his work with Earth Wind & Fire. Titles include "Sweet Fire", "Love Fantasy", "I Could Write A Love Song", "Missing You", and "Look What You Made Me Do". LP, Vinyl record album

New Soul Revolution ProjectOne More Time (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Soulbeats (France), 2012. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sweet beats from this cool French duo – a pair who've got that same sort of genre-jumping quality we've loved in French grooves since the days of MC Solaar! The approach here is mostly hip hop, but there's strains of Neo Soul, jazzy funk, and more – shifting the vibe nicely from track to track, but always with a nicely cohesive feel. Some cuts – billed as "samba rap" or "rap bossa" – show a nice Brazilian influence – and titles include "Byrd", "Avolta", "Dance Me", "Kool Out", "Now That I Know You", "Oedeep", "One More Time", and "So Tired". LP, Vinyl record album

New Bobby TimmonsSoul Time ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Used .... Out Of Stock
A real standout set from Bobby Timmons – one of his few non-trio sessions as a leader, and a record that crackles with the same sort of energy he brought to his work with the Jazz Messengers! Of course, that's no surprise – as the quartet on the set includes Bobby's boss at the time, drummer Art Blakey – as well as always-great bassist Sam Jones (who Bobby worked with in the Cannonball Adderley group), and trumpeter Blue Mitchell, stepping out nicely on top to give the album a well-rounded and soulful spirit. The set includes some great originals, too – the kind of rolling Timmons' numbers that made him one of the freshest writers of his generation – as you'll hear on "So Tired", "Soul Time", "Stella B", and "One Mo'". Hard to find, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer pressing, with microphone logo & deep groove. Vinyl has a number of marks & plays with some crackling. Cover has some wear, a split bottom seam, splitting & tape on the other seams, a peeled spot in one corner, & a couple of stains.)

Ahmed AbdullahLife's Force ... LP
About Time, 1979. New Copy .... $7.99 11.99
A crowning moment of achievement for trumpeter Ahmed Abdullah – a record that draws on his rich experience working with Sun Ra, but focuses the energy into a warmer, more spiritual jazz setting overall! The album's a lost treasure from the US scene of the late 70s – a perfect melding of jazz modes of the time, and one of those dates that somehow has all the players sounding even better than usual – really hitting a unique space together – one that's rhythmic, yet searching – free, yet structured – and always open to new ideas throughout! In addition to trumpet from Abdullah, the group also features vibes from Jay Hoggard, French horn from Vincent Chaney, cello from Muneer Abdul Fatah, bass from Jerome Hunter, and drums from Rashied Sinan. Hunter's bass is an especially moving force in the session – giving the album a warm, soulful current that really holds things together – and titles include "Song of Tenderness", "Eternal Spiraling Spirit", "Long Time Black", and "Life's Force".
