Eddie JeffersonMain Man ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more experimental modes of other Jefferson dates of the 70s, and hits a snapping, swinging style that moves Eddie back to his hippest modes of the 60s. Hampton plays trombone in the group, and other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Richie Cole on alto, Junior Cook on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Harold Mabern on piano and electric piano. Leon Thomas produced the record, and Joyce Lawson guests as the female voice on a remake of "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include a killer version of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" that is probably worth the price of the album alone – and there's also "Benny's From Heaven" and "Freedom Jazz Dance", both of which are great, too – plus "Summertime", "Exactly Like You", and "Night Train". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has wide masking tape along the top & bottom seams.)

Leonard NimoyMr Spock's Music From Outer Space ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
Holy cow! Although some of Leonard Nimoy's albums were attempts to "get past" his Spock career, this one is a full-on Star Trek experience! Nimoy's on the cover, holding a replica of The Enterprise in front of some weird spider web design. On the wax, he's laying down great space stuff, like "Alien", "Twinkle Twinkle Little Earth", and "Visit to a Sad Planet". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a light stain and some flaking on one corner.)

Leonard NimoyNew World Of Leonard Nimoy ... LP
Dot, Early 70s. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the more obscure albums from Leonard Nimoy – a bit less "Mr Spock" than some of the others, but still with his uncanny way of delivering a tune! The feel is pretty odd – especially given that the material is maybe hipper than before – and arrangements are by Ben Benay and Mike Henderson – and titles include "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", "Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town", "Abraham Martin & John", "Proud Mary", "The Mayor Of Ma's Cafe", "I Finally Saw The Two Of You Today", "The Sun Will Rise", and "Everybody's Talkin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a tracklist sticker on the front.)

Leonard NimoyThe Way I Feel ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Groovy groovy stuff from Mr. Spock! This album features some surprisingly great covers of 60s material – like "Sunny", "Where It's At", and "Both Sides Now". But the real highlights are the originals by Nimoy – one dark and spooky, one surprisingly unselfconsciously pop – and the tracks are titled "Consilium" and "Please Don't Try To Change My Mind". Nice mod 60s cover, too. Beam us up! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Luba RaushiekLuba – Chi Jazz ... LP
Erect, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure bit of Chicago jazz – featuring vocalist Luba Raushiek, kind of a self-styled spiritualist, with an approach that hits both traditional modes, and more far-out soulful ones – running through styles that range from Leon Thomas to Billy Eckstine, as was typical for a small club vocalist like this. The record's not great – but it's a valuable bit of Chicago jazz, as Raushiek did sing in quite a few of the city's clubs in the 70s and 80s, and he's helped here by players like John Young, Ari Brown, and Von Freeman. Titles include "Impressions", "Well You Needn't", "Enterprise", and "Love Makes The World Go Round". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leon ThomasLeon Thomas Album ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Leon Thomas' first album for Flying Dutchman – and one of his best ever! The vibe is very similar to his work with Pharoah Sanders – with long modal tracks that bring out the best side of Thomas' spiritual vocalizations – especially on the 17 minute track "Pharoah's Tune (The Journey)", which is worth the price of the album alone. The personal is mindblowing, too – with Billy Harper, Billy Cobham, Roy Haynes and Jerome Richardson among the players – but make no mistake, it's Leon's voice and incredible energy that makes this such a classic! Beautiful spiritual jazz vocal material, with a sound that's beyond compare! Other tracks include "Come Along", "I Am", "Bag's Groove" and "Um, Um, Um". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – in great shape!)

✨✧ Nancy WilsonCan't Take My Eyes Off Of You ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great album from Nancy Wilson – a set that still has her working with the jazzy undercurrents of her best 60s work for Capitol Records – yet also moving into some hipper, more sophisticated soul styles too! There's a really strong adult vibe to the record – not that Nancy didn't have one before, but this time around there's even more sense of personality and experiential depth that really comes through in the choice of songs – and in Wilson's wonderful treatment of them. Tunes that might be stiff in the hands of someone else are really transformed here – with added thanks to Phil Wright for great arrangements on the record. Titles include a version of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", Burt Bacharach's obscure "Waitin For Charlie To Come Home", and the tracks "Trip With Me", "This Girl Is A Woman Now", "Mixed Up Girl", and "Words & Music". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label reissue pressing.)
