✨✧ Ben SidranFeel Your Groove ... LP
Capitol, 1971. Used ... 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 a cutout hole, some wear, a small split on the top seam, a bit of pen, and a radio station stamp.)

Leonard NimoyThe Way I Feel ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

✨✧ 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
(Original pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear.)

Leon ThomasGold Sunrise On Magic Mountain ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Mega, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
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.)

✨✧ Leon ThomasLeon Thomas Album ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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.)

✨✧ Billie HolidayLady Love (United Artists) ... LP
United Artists, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare live work from Billie Holiday – mostly from the early 50s, but not issued until a few years after her death – in a well-done package from United Artists! The tunes were mostly recorded under the supervision of Leonard Feather – and come from two different German tour dates – one with Carl Drinkard on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Elaine Leighton on drums – the other with a larger group that features Sonny Clark and Beryl Booker on piano, Red Norvo on vibes, Buddy DeFranco on clarinet, and Jimmy Raney on guitar! The second set features longer tracks with a bit more improvisation – a nice treasure from these key years of Billie – on titles that include "Lover Come Back To Me" and "Billie's Blues". The trio sides are a bit more straight, but still plenty great – with titles that include "Blue Moon", "All Of Me", "My Man", "I Cover The Waterfront", and "I Cried For You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Douglas pressing in an alternate cover.)
