Larry Young — Larry Young's Fuel ... LP 9.99

Quite possibly the greatest Larry Young album of the post-Blue Note years – and a massive bit of funk that totally redefines his sound! Larry's working here with his hip group Fuel – an ensemble that features Laura Logan on lead vocals, giving the tunes a real focus through her lyrics – and letting them pack a bit more punch too, since her voice sounds a lot like Betty Davis at the time! Larry's keyboards are forceful, but never too over the top – and he's notched things down a bit to focus on the overall groove of the set – still keeping things adventurous on the keys, but also working in a mode that's much more heavily jazz funk! The album's one of THE essential electric jazz sets of the 70s – and features the classic break cut "Turn Out the Lights" – plus other great tracks that include "Floating", "Fuel for the Fire", "I Ching", "H+J=B (Hustle + Jam = Bread)" and "New York Electric Street Music".

Spiral – Live At Montreux 1978
Novus/Arista, 1978. Very Good+
A wonderful album from Muhal – with all the soulful spiritualness of his best 70s work, more stripped down than later orchestrated efforts, and with a gentler more intimate approach than earlier work. The set is mostly solo piano – although Abrams also plays some occasional percussion ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don't Stop The Music
Arista, 1977. Very Good
A stone classic from The Brecker Brothers – working here at a new level for 70s jazz fusion! Sure, it's as slick as it can be – with touches of club and disco grooves to give an even smoother edge to the jazz funk of the Brecker Brothers – but thanks to some solid soloing that's ...

Monster
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
Totally cool Jimmy Smith album that has him playing a lot of funky groovy versions of TV and Film themes, like "Goldfinger", "Theme From The Munsters", "Theme From Man With the Golden Arm", and "Theme From Bewitched". Oliver Nelson leads a large band and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Experiment
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint-
A wonderful session of hip soul jazz tracks from Freddie Hubbard – mostly short tight and groovy, but played with a sophisticated style that points the way towards the soul jazz sound of the 70s. Soul Experiment is a fitting title – as Freddie works hard with hip players like Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Spirit Of 67
Impulse, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the great albums that Pee Wee Russell recorded for Impulse during the late 60's, when they brought him back for some great comeback LPs in a number of different settings. This one has him playing as the main soloist with Oliver Nelson's orchestra. As with most of Nelson's work from the 60's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Mid/Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
70's 2-fer that brings together 2 of Jackie McLean's classic bop albums for Prestige – Lights Out and 4, 5, & 6. The groups include Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Elmo Hope, and Mal Waldron. The tracks are longish, and McLean's tone is very raw, much rawer than on some of his Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album

Discovered Again!
Sheffield Labs, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
To tell the truth, we didn't know he'd ever been lost – but who cares anyway, as the album captures Dave in his best 70s fusion mode! The album's got some great mellow tunes that bubble along with a sweet electric feel – gliding in that Grusin way that was never that funky, but which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Straight Life
CTI, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
An amazing second CTI set from Freddie Hubbard – one that takes off nicely from Red Clay territory, and starts to hit an even funkier mode! The tracks here are all relatively long, with a huge amount of solo space for Freddie on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, George Benson on guitar, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Le Spank
AVI, 1977. Near Mint-
Seems throwaway from the package – which has a bare ass being spanked on the cover – but the album's actually a pretty slick batch of jazzy disco tracks from the great Rinder & Lewis team! The cornerstone of the album's the group's 10 minute groover "Le Spank" – a ... LP, Vinyl record album
