Henry FranklinSkipper At Home ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1974. Used ... $10.99
Brilliant basswork from Henry Franklin – one of the hippest cats handling his instrument on the west coast in the 70s – working here with a wicked ensemble of soulful, righteous players! Franlin's bass sets the tone of the record right from the very first note – but the album's a very collaborative effort, too – and features Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Charles Owens on tenor, Bill Henderson on soprano sax, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Kirk Lightsey on both piano and flute! The legendary David Durrah plays piano on two tracks – his own "Waltz for "Boobuss" and "Venus Fly Trap" – and the Sisters Happiness sing vocals on the latter cut, too. Other titles include "Blue Lights", "Soft Spirit", and a version of Chick Corea's "What Was". CD

Kenny GarrettDo Your Dance ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
The title and cover really don't do this album justice – as the whole thing's got all the best depth and fire of Kenny Garrett's recent work, and none of the slightly cheesy 80s vibe the package makes us expect! True, there is a rapper on two tracks – son of producer Donald Brown – but his contributions are minimal, and the core energy of the record comes from a warm quartet that features Garrett's well-blown alto in the company of pianist Vernell Brown on piano, Corcoran Holt on bass, and McClenty Hunter on drums. A few cuts add in added percussion, but in a nicely subtle way – and the whole thing almost takes us back to some of Kenny's earliest records, but with a bit more maturing in the way he approaches his solos. Titles include "Philly", "Calypso Chant", "Waltz (3 Sisters)", "Persian Steps", "Chasing The Wind", and "Bossa". CD
Also available Do Your Dance (180 gram pressing) ... LP 33.99

Trudy PittsThese Blues Of Mine ... LP
Prestige, 1967. Near Mint- ... $33.99
One of the greatest albums ever cut by organ player Trudy Pitts – and all of them are pretty darn great! Trudy was a unique talent with a really soulful sound – important in the Philly-New Jersey scene from the 60s onward, and working here in her classic trio with Pat Martino on guitar and longtime partner Bill Carney on drums. Trudy's style on the organ is unlike anyone else we can think of – light and dancing, but also deeply soulful – often augmented by some warm vocals, casually thrown into the session with a feel that's similar to work by Andy & The Bey Sisters, although less harmonic. The album's got a great blend of soulful and groovy tunes – with titles that include "Organology", "Just Us Two", "These Blues Of Mine", "What The World Needs Now", "Man & Woman", "Teddy Makes Three", and "Count Nine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful Japanese pressing from 2005 – heavy cover and vinyl!)

Shakti with John McLaughlinHandful Of Beauty ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1976. Used ... $11.99
John McLaughlin's the only one pictured on the front cover, but the album's definitely still a highly-collaborative effort from the Shakti group – one that's awash in sounds and styles from Indian music! L Shankhar's violin is used almost as strongly as McLaughlin's guitar – with a soaring, spacious quality that's years ahead of its time – and which almost presages a decade's worth of music to come on countless jazz, soundtrack, and new age albums! But fortunately, the record's got a lot more depth than that latter genre – thanks to assorted percussion and Indian instrumentation – all used in ways that feel quite spontaneous, and almost improvised live – but never in a bombastic sort of way. Titles include "La Danse Du Bonheur", "Isis", "India", "Lady L", "Two Sisters", and "Kriti". CD

✨✧ Gary BartzHarlem Bush Music – Uhuru ... LP
Milestone (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential record from Gary Bartz – one of two albums he cut with Andy Bey, and the killer group he was calling his NTU Troup! Andy's vocals are incredible – light years ahead of anything he did with his sisters, and similar to those he laid down on his own solo album for Atlantic, and on Blue Note sides with Horace Silver – a righteous mix of jazz and soul, with a burning intensity that makes the political themes of the tracks come out strongly. The album includes one of Andy's all time classics – the original 7 minute version of "Celestial Blues", plus the fantastically grooving "Uhuru Sasa" – as well as the cuts "The Planets", and "Blue (A Folk Tale)". And Gary Bartz is pretty great too – dropping in these angular reed lines that really give the record an edge, and which sound totally great next to Bey's vocals! LP, Vinyl record album
