✨✧ 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

✨✧ Henry FranklinSkipper At Home ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Louis HayesBreath Of Life ... CD
Muse/32 Jazz, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice little groover with a real Strata East soul jazz kind of feel, featuring the great Ronnie Matthews on piano, plus Charles Davis on baritone, and Gerald Hayes on alto. Hayes, Davis, and trumpeter Tex Allen all contribute tracks, including "Brothers & Sisters", "Olea", and "Bongolo". A very nice sound overall, and proof that Muse could turn out great sessions when it wanted to! CD
(Out of print. Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)
