Harvey MasonMVP – Most Valuable Player (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
Harvey's fifth and final album for Arista – another win for the funk-soul-fusion MVP! Given that Harvey worked on some of the best fusion sessions of the 70s, it's more than safe to give him "most valuable player" award – because without his drums, many a record would have faltered! Here, though, Mason's much more in his all-out soul mode – singing, playing, and producing in a smooth blend of jazz and modern soul, still with some funky grit in the mix. It not only benefits greatly from his years as one of the great studio players, but even more so for his triple threat talent as a writer, producer and performer. Tracks are all quite tight and catchy – soul groovers with some funk. Feature arrangements from Kenny Mason, Patrice Rushen and Jerry Peters. Titles include "Universal Rhyme", "Don't Doubt My Lovin", "On and On", "You And Me", "Spell", and "How Does It Feel". This expanded edition from Soulmusic.com includes 2 bonus tracks: "How Does It Feel (UK Single)" and "On And On (UK Single)". CD

Sonic YouthEternal ... CD
Matador, 2009. Used Gatefold ... $2.99
Indie rock elders Sonic Youth's first high profile album on an indie label in about 20 years – the group's first for Matador, and a skillful mix of insistent, exciting melodic precision, barbed lyricism, random bursts of noise, and enough layered hypnotic guitar errata that you'll hear something new each time you come back to it! Through the years they continued to be pretty exciting, and for the most part managed to avoid repeating themselves, while still working in something of a comfort zone – once throwing a screwdriver in the old noise rock guitar neck with the addition of Jim O'Rourke to the group, and with O'Rourke's departure, former Pavement player Mark Ibold on bass. Kim Gordon is now freed up to be play guitar, making for a triple threat along with Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo – and it's a riveting sound. They don't reinvent the wheel on The Eternal – but they steer into adventurous waters – and as long as they're making records this good we're hoping they live up to title! Includes "Sacred Trickster", "Anti-Orgasm", "Leaky Lifeboat (For Gregory Corso)", "Antenna", "What We Know", "Calming The Snake", "Poison Arrow", "Malibu Gas Station", "Thunderclap For Bobby Pyn", "No Way", "Walkin Blue", "Massage The History".

Roland KirkThird Dimension ... LP
Bethlehem/Doxy, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... Around November 1, 2014 (delayed)
Excellent early work from Roland Kirk – not as groundbreaking as later sessions, but still filled with fire and imagination, and proof that the famous blind player was a genius even at an early age! Kirk plays alto, tenor, and soprano – and on all tracks, he plays them in his unique "3-in-1" style, in which he's actually blowing all horns at the same time! The result is an incredible sound, unlike anyone else we can think of – and it's an amazingly raw tone that still swings very hard. Players include Jimmy Madison on piano, Carl Pruitt on bass, and Hank Duncan on drums – a really rootsy quartet that helps Roland hit a really gutbuckety sound on the record. Titles include "Triple Threat", "Slow Groove", "Roland's Theme", "Easy Living", "The Nearness Of You", and "A La Carte". LP, Vinyl record album

New Willis JacksonLegends Of Acid Jazz – Keep On A Blowin'/Thunderbird ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1959/1962. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy tenor from Willis Jackson – two early 60s killers for Prestige, back to back on a single CD! First up is Keep On A Blowin – an album that has hard wailin' soul jazz solos by Brother Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar! Those two, plus Gator, make up the core of the combo that features additional backing by bass and drums, but you won't need to worry about the additional players, because the triple threat of tenor/organ/guitar will hold all your attention. Tracks are long, and as usual, the best ones are the originals, including "Blue Strollin", "A Smooth One", and "Keep On A Blowin". Thunderbird is a massive groover – and a set that rumbles as much as you might guess from the title! The album's got Willis Jackson blowing in a very open, loud tenor tone – working with an unusual group that features Freddie Roach on organ, and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – the former a hip, smooth keyboardist, the latter a rougher, bluesier player – making for a really nice mix of modes! There's a deep soul jazz bottom throughout – and titles include "Thunderbird", "Oh Lady Be Good", "Back & Forth", and "California Sun". CD

New GirlsGirl Talk (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked girl group from the 80s – but one who step out here with a sound to rival the hits of artists like Vanity 6 or The Mary Jane Girls! Like both of those acts, The Girls get help here from a bigger soul artist in the studio – Minneapolis giant Andre Cymone, who wrote and produced the record with a vibe that's very similar to his own albums of the time! Cymone always had some of the tightest grooves in the world of early 80s funk – and this album's filled with his trademark beats and basslines, and those lean keyboard lines that lay in plenty of punch underneath the vocals. The Girls sing with a style that's less harmonic than a triple-threat lead – and their catchy approach works well with the lyrics of the tunes. Titles include "Women & Men", "Don't Waste My Time", "SESEX", "Nu Boy", "My Man", and "What Do I See In You". CD features bonus tracks – "Don't Waste My Time (single mix)", "My Man (single)", "SESEX (12" voc)", and "SESEX (inst)". CD
