✨✧ Ben SidranFeel Your Groove ... LP
Capitol, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare Capitol Records outing from Ben Sidran – and one of his best from the early years! The album's a quirky batch of tracks that also gets nice and funky at times – and some of the best cuts have a tightly snapping feel with plenty of breaks – so much so that the album's been a beathead classic for years! But even the cuts without the breaks are great – straighter jazz, but with a really nice edge – and really in the frontiers of jazz vocal work – hardly the stuff that might have been recorded a few years before. Most instrumentation is small combo, with a mixture of electric and acoustic instrumentation – and titles include the sublime groover "About Love", plus "Poor Girl", "Leo's My Name", "Spread Your Wings", "My Wife", and "That Fine Day". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear and splitting on the top seam.)

Leon ThomasBlues & The Soulful Truth ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Leon Thomas takes his vocals to new heights – moving past the straight spiritual jazz modes of his work with Pharoah Sanders, to embrace a whole host of new styles too! There's a slight trace of the blues promised in the title, but always inflected through a more soulful approach overall – thanks to backings arranged by Pee Wee Ellis – known best for his work with the James Brown band of the late 60s! Pee Wee handles reed solos on the tunes, and the group also features some great work on keyboards from Neal Creque – from Pucho's band – plus some guitar from Cornell Dupree and Larry Coryell. Yet Thomas is clearly the main attraction – sounding beautifully expressive at that level that no other jazz singer could ever hope to touch – that genre-starting style that continues to amaze us after all these years. Titles include the classic "China Doll" – plus "Love Each Other", "Boom Boom Boom", "Gypsy Queen", and "Shape Your Mind To Die". LP, Vinyl record album

Leon ThomasGold Sunrise On Magic Mountain ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Mega, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A very nice live set by Leon – recorded with a great electric group that has Neal Creque on piano, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Oliver Nelson on alto, and added percussion by Sonny Morgan. The vibe is nice and free, and the tracks have a very spiritual sound, in the manner of the work that Thomas was doing with Pharoah Sanders. The album features a soaring remake of Coltrane's "Cousin Mary" – a track that really benefits from the addition of vocals – plus the cuts "Na Na", "Umbo Weti", and "Honey Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole and some staining/peeling from moisture along the top 3 inches of the spine.)
