FusionTop Soul ... LP
Alba/Lion, 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Top Soul indeed, as Fusion is a hip Chilean funk band from the early 70s – one who take plenty of influence from American grooves, but also bring in their own soulful elements as well! The sound here is somewhere between Kool & The Gang and Banda Black Rio – with quite a bit of the blend of the latter, especially in the way more local percussion riffs fill out grooves that have a solid grounding in American funk! Instrumentation listed is tenor, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – but there's clearly a lot more horns too, as well as some very hip percussion – played in ways that are almost more Brazilian than straight Latin – with a really fluid sensibility that jams nicely with the grooves. There's a slight bit of vocals on the record, but most of the album is instrumental – and titles include versions of Sly Stone's "Thank You" and The Crusaders "Way Back Home" – plus "Dedos", "Balada De Matias", "Dee Blooz", "Para Toda La Gente", "Pulsearas", and "Lamentation".

Santa Y Su GenteUrgente ... LP
RCA/Lion, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
That's not Santa, as in Santa Claus – but a nickname for Santiago Salas, who works here in a very cool, jazzy mode! The album's got plenty of Latin roots, mixed with hipper 70s touches that include some key electric elements as well – all served up in a sparkling groove that's mighty unique, and which makes the record a real standout on the South American scene of the time! Some tunes are quite funky, with great electric piano lines over the rhythms – while others have more of a warmly glowing groove, one that seems to borrow a bit from Brazilian jazz of the time – yet make things into a style that's all its own. Some of these numbers have a bit of vocals, but the instrumental interplay of the album is much stronger overall – especially the Fender Rhodes lines that make the album well worth owning for any fan of 70s electric funk! Titles include "El Salero", "Colores", "Murumba", "La Muneca", "Niebla", "Pajaros En El Jardin", and "Triangulo Espanol". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dexter GordonMonmartre Collection Vol 1 ... LP
Black Lion (UK), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first great European statements from tenorist Dexter Gordon – a 1967 live recording that really lets Dexter stretch out, and show an even deeper side of his talents than on his 60s albums for Blue Note! The rhythm section here is rock solid – Kenny Drew on piano, Neils Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums – a unit that still retains the sharpness of the Blue Note dates, but also has the energy to "go long" as Gordon pushes a few of the numbers on the set well past the ten minute mark. Gordon's solos are wonderfully imaginative and expressive – and titles include "Devilette", "For All We Know", "Doxy", and "Sonnymoon For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny DrewUndercurrent (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the greatest albums ever by pianist Kenny Drew – a record that's as noteworthy for the contributions of the sidemen as it is for the efforts of the leader! Drew's a player who often worked mostly in trio formats – but here, he's hitting hard with a righteous Blue Note power – thanks to the presence of Hank Mobley on tenor and Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, both of whom really give the record an edge! Drew's lyrical sensibilities are shifted to darker, more modern moments at times – and the rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. An essential addition to the Blue Note legacy of Mobley and Hubbard – and the set's filled with original tunes by Kenny, including "The Pot's On", "Undercurrent", "Funk-Cosity", and "Lion's Den". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lloyd McNeill & Marshall HawkinsTanner Suite (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Asha/Soul Jazz (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
One of the rarest and most sublime records from the legendary Lloyd McNeill – a performance commissioned by the Smithsonian in 1969, and featuring just McNeill and flute alongside the bass of Marshall Hawkins! The spare approach is different than some of Lloyd's other releases on his tiny Asha label – and the lack of core rhythm on most tracks really lets McNeill stretch out in these beautifully-flowing flute lines – very spiritual, and almost Dolphy-esque – while Hawkins shades in the sound with both bowed lines and these brooding plucked passages that carry a lot of power in the open space. As with McNeill's other genius releases of the time, the music is never too far out – but always searching soulfully for something new – and the quality of the whole thing really surpasses most other records of this nature from the time. Titles include "Black Expatriate", "Tanner Blue", "Daniel In The Lion's Den", and "The Banjo Lesson". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000! Includes download.)

✨✧ Frank LoweFresh ... LP
Arista Freedom, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the better recordings created for the Arista/Freedom series, rather than licensed from tapes Alan Bates had already produced for Black Lion – and a nice set of loft jazz played by Lowe with help from Lester and Joseph Bowie, Abdul Wadud, Steve Reid, and Charles Bobo Shaw. The group play 2 Monk tracks, "Epistrophy" and "Mysterioso", plus 2 Lowe originals, "Play Some Blues" and "Fresh", with a sound befitting the title track, approaching the new thing with a respect for the swing and blues roots of jazz. The final track "Chu's Blues", is a little different from the rest of the LP, a great grooving number that was performed by Lowe in Memphis, with help from the Memphis Four. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanCapuchin Swing ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous set from Jackie McLean – perfectly poised between his hardbop and modern years, with a set of compositions that are as great as the performances! The lineup on this one's a bit unusual – with Walter Bishop on piano, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – but that mix of players makes for a really unusual sound – as the rhythm section's often straight ahead, Blue Mitchell's notes are bold and sparkling, and Jackie's own solos are reaching for the darker corners of the spectrum! There's a great sense of tension here that heralds the genius of later McLean sides of the 60s – and original titles include "Francisco", "Condition Blue", "On The Lion", and "Capuchin Swing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed, with a cutout hole in the cover. Could be a 70s pressing, but might be earlier too.)

Kudu, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully soulful lines over the top on soprano sax! The album's got some really wonderful funk tracks that feature a mad mix of drums, bass, and lots of that Bob James "space" – including the massive cuts "Hydra" and "Knucklehead" – both of them magic! Other tracks include "Moonstreams", "It Feels So Good", and "The Sea Lion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hartmut Geerken & John TchicaiHindukush Serenade ... LP
Holidays (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most hypnotic, exotic work we've ever heard from either John Tchicai or Hartmut Geerken – a live performance recorded in Kabul during the late 70s, and one that features both players handling a wide variety of instruments! At the core, Tchicai plays alto, soprano sax, and flute – but also brings in some unusual percussion instruments, tchinkas, a lion roar string drum, and Egyptian cymbals – and Geerken shifts between standard piano, piano strings, and prepared piano – and also handles Sunny's Sun Harp, gongs, short wave radio, boo-chals, baz, and more – coming together with Tchicai in this very organic, spiritual style! Titles include "Invocations For Angels & Demons", "For Tesla Without Fessla", and "Point Of Low Return". LP, Vinyl record album

Basso Valdambrini QuintetFonit H602/603 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $25.99
Wonderful work from one of the greatest Italian jazz groups of the 60s – heard here in two of their rarest recordings! The set brings together material from two sessions that were only issued on the Fonit sound library label – but both are every bit as sharp and soulful as the best Basso-Valdambrini work for bigger labels – including their early 60s gems on RCA! And like those records, there's a wonderful sense of rhythm here – kind of the soul jazz side of Blue Note, but handled with a fresh sound that's nicely free of any copycat cliches – and which instead really has the group finding their own voice through their writing and solos. The H602 album is billed as "pop jazz" – which is more a 60s soul jazz style – and H603 is called "Californiano", with a bit of a west coast vibe, but still very much the best grooves we've come to love from the combo. The lineup on both includes tremendous trumpet from Oscar Valdabrini and tenor from Gianni Basso – with rhythms from Ettore Righello on piano, Giorgio Azzolini on bass, and Lionella Bionda on drums. Titles include "Pick Up", "Glaucus", "Gold Mine", "From Me", "Maglione", "Muy", "Plinius", and "Transistor". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of the entire record too!)

Sonny CrissPortrait Of Sonny Criss ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Near Mint- ... $8.99
The great altoist Sonny Criss is one of our favorite-ever reed players, and this beautiful session from his late 60's "comeback" period is a loving portrait of the wide range of his deep deep talents! On the surface, the record is deceptively simple, and only features Criss' work on alto sax, alongside with a piano trio led by Walter Davis. On hearing, though, the album is a rich tapestry of many soulful colors, all wrought by Sonny in a tone that had travelled the world – and which had been beaten down by years of struggle. All tracks are great, and titles include "On A Clear Day", "Blues In The Closet", "Wee", and "A Million Or More Times". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DoddsNew Orleans Clarinet ... LP
Riverside, 1920s. Very Good- ... $19.99
Seminal recordings of the trad clarinetist, recorded in Chicago in a variety of settings, mostly smaller bluesy groups of the sort that were inhabiting the south and west sides of town. Like Louis Armstrong, he supplanted his New Orleans style to Chicago, meshing it with the urban black musics that would become the roots of jazz. A dozen numbers in all, recorded with Jasper Taylor's State Street Boys, Junie Cobb's Hometown Band, Viola Bartlette, Blind Blake, the State Street Rqamblers and Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders, including "It Must Be The Blues", "State Street Blues", "East Coast Trot", "Chicago Buzz", "Walk Easy 'Cause My Papa's Here", 'Southbound Rag", "Bohunkus Blues", "Buddy Burton's Jazz", "Cootie Stomp", "Weary Way Blues", "Chicago Mess Around" and "Gallion Stomp".

Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of Lionel Hampton's great small combo sides for Verve from the 50s – done mostly with accompaniment from a trio of Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – plus the addition of guitar from Herb Ellis on a few of the album's shorter tracks. It's the longer ones that are really the best, though – loose takes of "Tenderly", "Hamp's Boogie Woogie", and "Hallelujah" that really get at the inventive power of Hampton during his ever-popular live dates. Shorter tunes are nice too, but a bit less compelling – and titles include "A Foggy Day" and "Honeysuckle Rose". LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel HamptonHamp's Big Band ... LP
Audio Fidelity, 1959/1960. Very Good ... $7.99
Very groovy work from Lionel Hampton – a late 50s return to big band work, after a fair bit of small combo sessions for Verve! The album's got an upbeat feel that's partially in the Hampton mode of years back, but often more towards a 60s sort of vibe – romping with some rockish inspirations in the rhythms, and almost pointing the way towards a modder, groovier sound overall. The band is large, and features Donald Byrd and Cat Anderson on trumpets, Lou Blackburn and Wade Marcus on trombones, Eddie Pazant on alto, Wade Legge on piano, and Charlie Persip on drums – proving again that mid century rule that all great players had to play for a spell in Hampton's group! Hampton vocalizes a bit, and titles include "Kidney Stew", "Hamp's Mambo", "Night Train", "Elain & Daffy", "Big Brass", and "Hey Baby Re Bob". LP, Vinyl record album

Although Lionel Hampton's always best remembered for his storming swing days in the early 40s, we love him on records like this one – an easy open-ended straight jazz session from the 50s, with lots of room for soloing in a much more jazz-oriented vein than you'll hear on Hamp's early records. The group's a small all-star combo that features Roy Brown, Buddy Rich, and Oscar Peterson next to Hamp's vibes – and the set list includes long takes of "Midnight Sun", "That Old Black Magic", and "Blues For Norman".

EmArcy, 1955. Very Good- ... $9.99
Paris was always great to Lionel Hampton – but it seemed like in the mid 50s, he cut some of his best work of the decade in the city! This set features a great batch of track that Hamp cut in the company of travelling American jazz greats like Benny Bailey, Nat Adderley, and David Amram, plus some crack French players like Rene Urtreger, Sacha Distel, and Guy Pederson. The tracks are simple jamming numbers – long and open-ended, in the mode of some of Hamp's very popular live work at the time. The vibes are right out front – hard-edged, with that soulful sound that Hamp pioneered on the instrument – and the other players are given very ample room to solo. Titles include "Voice Of The North", "All The Things You Are", and "Zebu". LP, Vinyl record album

This set catches Hamp and a great group at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium – playing on long tracks with plenty of cool flourishes and really strong standout moments – pyrotechnic throughout, even in the mellower moments! Hampton is on piano, vibes, and drums – and other players include Willie Smith on alto, Charlie Shaves on trumpet, and Milt Bucker on piano.

Brunswick, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the hippest albums ever cut by Lionel Hampton – a badass batch of 70s funk tunes, recorded with arrangements from the Chicago powerhouse team at Brunswick Records! Lionel's vibes are mixed with tight drums, sweet bass, and some very soulful arrangements that make even the mellower tracks feel like they've been lifted from some lost blacksploitation soundtrack. Includes great versions of 2 Willie Henderson tunes – "Off Into A Black Thing" and "Funky Chicken", both of which sound even better than the originals with the vibes in place – plus the tracks "Easy", "Shut Your Mouth", "I Found Sunshine", and "One Man Band".

Columbia, 1955. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice live set Hamp recorded at the Trianon Ballroom in Chicago in 1954, one of the few albums he issued on Columbia, and an aptly titled LP, with the group pulling out all the stops. At the time Hampton's orchestra featured Pete Badie on bass, Bill Mackel on guitar, Jay Peters on tenor, Walter Williams on trumpet and Edwin Frazier on tenor, plus many others. Quincy Jones also plays trumpet and did the arrangements for "Love For Sale". All the takes are nice and lengthy, with the soloists taking plenty of rtoom to stretch out, and the other numbers include "The Chase", "Wailin At The Trianon", "Mark VII", ""How High The Moon" and "Stardust". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove.)
