Roland P YoungHearsay/I-Land ... LP
Flow Chart/Palto Flats, 1984/1987. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Roland P Young is reclining on the cover, in an image that's almost a sketch for a major label release by one of the UK singers of the new romantic years – and at some level, that's almost the vibe for the entire set here – a nicely lean take on more popular modes of the time, delivered with plenty of craft and charm from this underground artist! Roland's not afraid to serve up a catchy hook and go for a tune that could cross over big – but the lean production of the record gives the whole thing a vibe that's more in the territory of the cold wave scene – although Young is a lot warmer at the core. Some cuts feature additional vocals from Risa Young – and the LP features the rare EP releases I-Land and Hearsay – with titles that include "Victim", "Go Away", "Don't Make Me Wait", "Don't Ever Take Your Love Away", "It Hurts So Bad", "Different Package", and "Edge Of Disaster".

✨✧ Ed ThigpenYoung Men & Olds ... CD
Bellaphon (Germany), 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ed Thigpen's a mighty young man for his age – a drummer with decades of experience, but easily able to slide into the excellent group of younger musicians here - a crack lineup that features Terence Blanchard on trumpet, Branford Marsalis on soprano and tenor, Roland Hanna on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Bobby Thomas Jr on drums! Ed's recorded so often in a piano trio, that we especially love his albums with horn players – and this date really crackles with the kind of excitement that Thigpen can bring to the right sort of group – almost as if he's showing the world that he could have his own version of the Jazz Messengers if he wanted. Titles include "Shufflin Long", "Oh My Gosh", "Summertime", "Scramble", "Yesterdays", and "Dark Before The Dawn". CD

Dee Dee BridgewaterAfro Blue ... CD
Trio/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of all time – and one of the first true moments of genius from a young Dee Dee Bridgewater! The album's a Japanese only release (proof that they're always hipper to our jazz artists than we are!) – and it features Dee Dee singing material that's quite different than her later R&B-inflected sides from the late 70s – very soaring and spiritual work, delivered in a way that set a whole new standard for jazz at the time! Backing is by a small combo with brothers Ron and Cecil Bridgewater, plus Roland Hanna on acoustic and electric piano, George Mraz on bass, and Motohiko Hino on drums and percussion – but the star of the set is always Dee Dee, who sparkles beautifully on the album's classic versions of "Afro Blue" and "Little B's Poem" – both of which have been redone by many other singers over the years. Other great cuts include "People Make The World Go Round", "Love From The Sun", and "Love Vibrations". CD

Jerry ButlerIce On Ice ... LP
Mercury, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Killer stuff – as Jerry's getting the full early Philly treatment here, with arrangements by Thom Bell, Bobby Martin, and Roland Chambers, and production by a young Gamble and Huff! The sound isn't nearly as icy as the old Vee Jay days – but that's fine with us, as Jerry is nice and soulful on tracks like "Moody Woman", "When You're Alone", "I Forgot To Remember", "Brand New Me", "What's The Use Of Breaking Up", and "Walking Around In Teardroops". Nice cover, too – with Jerry standing in a pile of fake diamonds! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some aging, initials in marker, and a punch-hole, but is pretty solid overall.)

✨✧ Charles MingusLet My Children Hear Music (plus bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1973. Used ... $5.99
One of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". CD features the bonus track "Taurus In The Arena Of Life". CD

Charlie Persip & The Jazz StatesmenRight Down Front (aka Charlie Persip & The Jazz Statesmen) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1960. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A killer hardbop session – and a long lost classic! This stunning set is one of the best, and hardest sessions ever cut for the Bethlehem label – and it's got a raw pounding groove that sounds a lot more like some of the classic soul-tinged hardbop coming out on Prestige during the late 50s, than some of the more west coast oriented sessions that were usually Bethlehem's groove. Drummer Charlie Persip leads a crack quintet that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Ronnie Matthews on piano, and the amazing Roland Alexander on tenor. Alexander was a fantastic soul jazz player in the early 60s – and he was hardly ever recorded, and his work on this session is worth the price of the album alone. Everyone's great, though – and even a young Marcus Belgrave makes an appearance on trumpet on one track, as Freddie Hubbard sits out. Tracks are all long, and titles include "Sevens", "Right Down Front", "The Champ", and "Soul March". LP, Vinyl record album
(Late 70s pressing. Cover has light wear, a name in marker, and a cut-out notch.)

✨✧ Wilson PickettWilson Pickett In Philadelphia/Don't Knock My Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1970/1971. Used 2CDs ... Just Sold Out!
The Wicked Pickett takes his groove up to Philly – and comes up with a whole new sound in the process – a raw new style for the 70s, and one that's almost even more compelling than his Muscle Shoals groove! The album was recorded at the early Sigma Sound studios in Philly – and features arrangements from Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Roland Chambers – all artists who really help bring in a northern vibe to Pickett's music, yet still let those amazingly raw vocals do their thing! In a way, it's this mix of raw and smooth that almost sets the scene for Philly International gems to come a few years later – especially since a lot of the tunes are penned by Gamble & Huff – and instrumentation is provided by Thom Bell on organ, Norman Harris and Bobby Eli on guitars, Ronnie Baker on bass, Earl Young on drums, and Vince Montana on vibes and percussion. Titles include "Days Go By", "Run Joey Run", "Help The Needy", "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You", "Ain't No Doubt About It", "Come Right Here", and the classic 2-part track "Get Me Back On Time, Engine Number 9". The funky groove on Don't Knock My Love is still right on the money, set up in some sweet Muscle Shoals arrangements, at a level that's right up there with his first recordings for Atlantic Records! Production is by Brad Shapiro and Dave Crawford, who bring in a few slight 70s southern soul touches – but overall, the whole thing's got all the raw, heavy-grooving energy you'd expect from The Wicked Pickett on Atlantic. Some cuts slide into each other nicely – which makes for an album that's really unified – and Dennis Coffey plays some great guitar on the set, alongside keyboards from Crawford and Barry Beckett, drums from Roger Hawkins, and percussion from Jack Ashford. Titles include "Don't Knock My Love (parts 1 & 2)", "Fire & Water", "Call My Name I'll Be There", "Hot Love", "A Mighty Long Way", and "You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover". CD
(A great two disc set loaded with extra bonus tracks!)

✨✧ Betty BlakeSings In A Tender Mood ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little vocal session on Bethlehem – and maybe the only record we've ever seen from singer Betty Blake! Blake's a great vocalist right from the start – one who balances swing and sophistication wonderfully – amidst some very hip jazz backings from a combo that features Zoot Sims and Roland Alexander on tenor, Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Teddy Charles on vibes, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Mal Waldron on piano! The set's got a bit more punch than some other Bethlehem vocal dates, but it also has a nice sense of spontaneity too – never over-arranged or too staid, in ways that really show off Blake's swinging side. Titles include "Moon and Sand", "I'll Be Around", "While We're Young", "Blue Fool", and "Trouble Is A Man". CD
(Out of print, 2013 pressing – includes obi.)

✨✧ Thad Jones & Mel LewisLive On Tour – Switzerland 1969 ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the legendary big band of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – a live performance recorded in Switzerland at the same time as the group's classic recordings for the Solid State label! Given that the date was recorded by Solid State producer Sonny Lester, the feel here is quite similar – and the album stands strongly alongside the better-known live dates by the group at the Village Vanguard from the same time. As on those records, there's a tremendous blend of driving energy and lyrical musing going on here – qualities that are very hard to balance this well in such a big band, but which became the trademark sounds of the Jones/Lewis group as they helped redirect large ensemble jazz towards new ends as the 60s drew to a close. Players are all top-shelf – with rhythm by Roland Hanna on piano and Richard Davis on bass, alongside the drums of Lewis – plus saxes from Joe Henderson, Pepper Adams, Jerome Richardson, and Jerry Dodgion; trumpets from Richard Williams, Thad Jones, and Snooky Young; and trombones from Eddie Bert and Jimmy Knepper. Titles include "Second Race", "Don't Ever Leave Me", "Come Sunday", "Don't Get Sassy", "Groove Merchant", "Ahh That's Freedom", "The Waltz You Swang For Me", and "Bible Story". CD

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineLook Of Love ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stanley Turrentine's a hell of a soloist in a large ensemble setting – and there's possibly no better place to hear that talent at work than on this classic 60s date for Blue Note! The format's a bit different than other Turrentine records of the time – no small group romping, nor larger band soul jazz – and instead this laidback and classy mode that's handled with a heck of a lot of soul by arrangers Thad Jones and Duke Pearson – with this sophisticated vibe that almost points the way towards some of Stan's ballad work of the 70s. Strings are balanced nicely with jazz inflections from players who include Hank Jones, Roland Hanna, and Duke Pearson on piano – plus Kenny Burrell on guitar, Benny Powell on trombone, and both Snooky Young and Jimmy Nottingham on flugelhorn. Titles include "The Look Of Love", "Emily", "I'm Always Drunk In San Francisco", "MacArthur Park", "Blues For Stan", "This Guy's In Love With You", and "Here There & Everywhere". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing. Gatefold cover has minimal wear.)

✨✧ Infinite SoundContemporary African-Amerikan Music ... LP
Arch/Aguirre (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real standout from the 70s spiritual jazz scene – and that's saying a lot, given how many outstanding records that scene gave us over the years! The group's got a very interesting approach – a trio lineup, with fantastic work on bass from Glenn Howell – who you might know from later guitar work – mixed with clarinet and other reeds from Roland Young, and these amazing vocals from Aisha Kahlil – a singer with a very freewheeling approach! Kahlil's like nobody we can really think of – almost more instrumental in approach than vocal, which mixes wonderfully with the clarinets, alto, and soprano saxes used by Young. And Howell's basslines have a depth that really holds things together – even when the other artists are relatively unbridled in their creation! There's also a bit of percussion on the record, handled by all group members – and titles include "Do It All", "Stagflation", "The Ocean Moves Primitively", "Spanish Tale", "Synthetic Variation", and "Homeland Rhythm Cycles".

✨✧ Jo GrinageOde To Kim ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1976. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A very cool set – a mix of jazz vocals, righteous ideas, and some nicely complex instrumentation – a bit like the hippest territory that Carmen McRae was hitting at the start of the 70s! The great Nadi Qamar directs the group, and handles the arrangements – and players include a young Hilton Ruiz on piano, the great Roland Alexander on tenor and flute, Ahmed Abdul Malik on bass, and Maxine Roach on viola. Titles include "Mother How I Miss Youi", "Rain", "Ode To Kim", "Woman", and "Eleanor Rigby". LP, Vinyl record album
