✨✧ Dave Baby CortezOrgan Shindig ... LP
Roulette, 1965. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy instrumentals from the great Dave Baby Cortez – all played with that tightness he brought to the organ in the 60s – a style of playing that paired down the modes the instrument had in jazz, and paved the way for countless others to help bring organ sounds to soul, rock, and other styles too! The backings have some nice rocking overtones, and Dave cooks beautifully in the setting – hitting the keys with a hard-burning mode that serves up plenty of mod soul riffing in the process! There's some great guitar and sax bits on the set too – and titles include"Shake", "Where Did Our Love Go", "Twine Time", "Watermelon Man", "Searchin", and "Paper Tiger". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dave Baby CortezDave Baby Cortez & His Happy Organ ... LP
Clock, 1960s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Stomping organ instrumentals from Dave Baby Cortez – a great little batch of work for the Clock label at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s, all of which helped to really find a place for the organ in American pop and soul! Cortez brought a style to the instrument that was as wild as some of the guitarists and saxophonists of his time – a mode that wasn't really jazz, was a bit R&B, and which helped give the organ a much leaner sound than some of its "skating rink" uses in pop during the decade before. Dave's clean style is a great fit for the jaunty, leaping rhythms of these tunes – with a dozen numbers in all, and titles that include "Piano Shuffle", "The Happy Organ", "Catnip", "Mardi Gras", "The Whistling Organ", "It's A Sin To Tell A Lie", "Red Sails In The Sunset", and "Hurricane". LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label pressing with deep groove.)

Harlem UndergroundHarlem Underground ... LP
Winley/Demon (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A legendary album – and for good reason too – a set that's as mysterious as it is funky, and a record that's stayed at the top of our crates for years! The album features a really unusual collective of musicians, pulled together under the guidance of producer Paul Winley – a group that features George Benson on guitar, Dave Baby Cortez on organ, Willis Jackson on tenor sax, and Earl Williams on some massively funky drums! The music's a mix of funky jazz and gritty soul – put together with some really weird studio touches – including an uncredited male voice that comes in and out of the tracks, bad-rapping along with some very hip commentary. Ann Winley sings the female vocals on the set – often egged on by the dude – but the real charm of the record lies at the bottom – the wicked drums, funky basslines, and choppy instrumental bits that have gotten the set sampled plenty over the years. Titles include the classic "Smokin Cheeba Cheeba" alone, the groovy "Finger In It", a great breakbeat version of "Ain't No Sunshine" with a tenor solo by Willis Jackson, and the slow bluesy talking cut "Fed Up", a baaaad rap about a couple splitting up – done here in both vocal and instrumental versions. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George BensonErotic Moods (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Paul Winley, Early 70s/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wild and mysterious stuff! This album is sort of a repackaged version of the legendary Harlem Underground album – a great lost funk album from the mid-70s that listed George Benson as a player in the group, but one that Benson claims that he never played on! The time of this release coincided with Benson's big hit years in the 70s – so the package is a bit of a cash-in project – but the grooves here are a lot harder-hitting than anything George recorded for Warner or Columbia – really gritty funk that's totally great throughout! Other players include Dave Baby Cortez on organ, Reuben Wilson on keyboards, and Willis Jackson on tenor – and Ann Winley sings on one track, the great "Fed Up", which has a really bad-rapping feel! Other titles include the classic break track "Smokin' Cheeba Cheeba" – plus a few smokin' organ/guitar wailers, like "Loose Joints" and "Overture Erotic", both of which are nice enough to warrant this separate release! Other tracks include "Erotic Moods" and "Sweet Taste Of Love". CD
