Les McCannLes McCann Sings – jukebox ep ... 7-inch
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good (pic cover)... $1.99
In a mode that foreshadows his move to soul during the 70s, this one features Les singing to some hip arrangements by Gerald Wilson – in kind of a pop soul jazz style that was common for LA of the mid 60s. Most of the tracks are standards, done with a bit of a kick, and some of that down-home grooving that folks were used to from Les' piano albums. Les still plays piano on this one while he's singing – and titles include "Bye Bye Black Bird", "Deed I Do", "On The Street Where You Live", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "But Not For Me", and "Wonder Why". 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve has a center split on the top seam.)

Afro Kelenkye BandJungle Funk/Mother Africa/Munchin Session/Too Bad Girl (2 x 7" singles) ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, 1977. New Copy 2 x 7" single (pic cover)... $13.99
Rare funk from the Kelekye Band – material recorded after their legendary Moving World album, but never issued at the time! This amazing package is totally great – four tracks of offbeat Afro Funk, with an approach that's heavy on percussion, and topped by jazzy riffs that really complicate the sound – a vibe that goes way deeper than more common Afro modes of the time, thanks to the rich solo energy of the horns! Trumpet is especially nice, and works great with the vocals – especially when they hit a warmer 70s soul mode that almost makes the record feel like Hugh Masekela teaming up with The Blackbyrds. Titles include "Mother Africa", "Munchin Session", "Too Bad Girl", and "Jungle Funk". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Marcio Lott/Silvio CesarTema De Baby/A Festa ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
A warm jazzy number from Marcio Lott – a singer who works here with a great little groove that's got a tight bassy bottom, sweet wah wah guitar in the middle, and a cool female chorus on the top – all in this funky soul mode that reminds us of the grooviest work we've heard from Marcos Valle! The flipside features an even funkier number from Silvio Cesar – the great "A Festa", which mixes a Banda Black Rio-styled groove with cool keyboard lines, and these deep vocals from Silvio himself! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ BlackbyrdsHappy Music/Love So Fine ... 7-inch
Fantasy, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great single by this legendary jazz funk group! "Happy Music" is a killer uptempo track – with these wild spacey guitars going back and forth on the intro in a way that still leaves us stunned. "Love So Fine" is great, too – and has a fantastic jazzy intro with a rumbling bass that's been sampled more than once! 7-inch, Vinyl record
