Otis SpannSweet Giant Of The Blues ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
The last album ever from the mighty Otis Spann – and maybe one of the greatest, too! The set's got Otis working in a hip blend of blues and jazz – served up with some tight combo work from west coast players who include Tom Scott on tenor and flute, Max Bennett on bass, Luie Shelton on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums! Otis plays piano, and sings with this raspy sound that's just right for his Chicago roots – and the use of electric bass by Bennett gives most of the numbers a funky undercurrent we really love. The approach is like some of the best ABC Bluesway sides of the same time – a mode that updates the Spann sound a bit, but never in a straight funk style – and titles include the mighty "I'm A Dues Payin Man", plus "I Wonder Why", "Bird In A Cage", "Make A Way", and "Sellin My Thing".

✨✧ Eddie Cleanhead VinsonOriginal Cleanhead ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really sweet late effort from bluesy soul singer and sax player Eddie Cleanhead Vinson – his dawn of the 70s comeback – done for the the Flying Dutchman label's Bluestime imprint. Cleanhead covered a a whole lot of stylistic range in earlier years, from big band vocalist, to R&B shouter, to bebop era alto sax player – and he comfortably displays that range here, albeit in a loose, easygoing bluesy soul mode – backed by a great group of session players that includes Joe Pass, Artie Butler, Arthur Wright and Plas Johnson. Bob Thiele produced, and the titles include "Cleanhead Blues", "Pass Out", "Alimony Blues", "Cleanhead Is Back", "Juice Head Baby", "Old Maid Boogie", "One O'Clock Humph" and "I Needs To Be Be'd Wid". LP, Vinyl record album
