Herbie HancockMwandishi – The Complete Warner Brothers Recordings ... CD
Warner, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $5.99
Essential set that brings together all of Herbie's key transitional recordings for Warner Brothers! Herbie started his years for the label playing in a more straight-ahead funky style – with perennial sample fave recordings like "Wiggle Waggle", "Fat Mama", and "Tell Me A Bedtime Story". Soon, however, he moved into more spacey territory – of the sort that he would later examine fully on his Columbia recordings of the early 70s. Tracks in this vein include "Sleeping Giant", "Water Torture", and "Wandering Spirit Song". The whole set features 3 full albums – Fat Mama, Crossings, and Mwandishi – and it's a great 2CD set filled with hard to find jazz funk classics! CD
(Please note the second disc has some marks but plays fine.)

✨✧ Count BasieBasie Plays Hefti ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from one of the greatest pairings in 50s jazz – the crack later group of Count Basie and the amazing arranging talents of the great Neal Hefti! Hefti later went onto greater fame as a 60s soundtrack composer, but back in the day him and Basie were an incredible team together – as Hefti's talent for quirky, witty, whimsical horn passages really opened up the Basie sound of earlier years – and took the band far past any Kansas City cliches, into a groove that was much more suited for a modern audience! This album's one of the best the two ever cut together – and it's overflowing with Hefti gems that include "Cute", "Pensive Miss", "Sloo Foot", "Scoot", "A Little Tempo Please", "Count Down", and "Pony Tail".

✨✧ George BensonGive Me The Night ... CD
Warner, 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Yipes! This one made everyone a bucket of money – especially Quincy Jones, whose new Qwest imprint the record was one of the first to grace. George has come a long way from his roots with Jack McDuff here – but in a way that kind of has us impressed, as he's grooving away slickly on guitar, laying down some smooth vocals that we never would have imagined from his mid 60s recordings. Includes the massive hit "Give Me The Night", a cover of "Moody's Mood", and the tracks "Star Of A Story (X)", "Midnight Love Affair", "What's On Your Mind", and "Dinorah, Dinorah". The sound of a million supermarkets and elevators during the 80s! CD

Pete Christlieb & Warne MarshApogee ... CD
Warner, 1978. Used ... $9.99
A brilliant set of post-post-post Konitz jazz – a late 70s Warne Marsh session, produced by Donald Fagan and Walter Becker of Steely Dan! Despite the smooth jazz feeling of Becker & Fagan's own work, the pair are completely respectful to Marsh and his twin-tenor frontman Pete Christlieb – recording them along with Lou Levy on piano, Jim Hughart on bass, and Nick Ceroli on drums, in a setting that's got a warm, acoustic feel. There's no tricks or electricity on the set – just a tight, angular approach to modern jazz – crafted in the twin-sax mode that Marsh recorded in often during the 50s. Titles include "Magnatism", "317 E 32nd", "Rapunzel", and "Tenors Of The Time". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Lunarcy", "Love Me", and "How About You". CD

Warner, 1987. Used ... $4.99
One of Miles' last great albums – a soundtrack composed in conjunction with Marcus Miller, and recorded with a mix of atmospheric electronics and trumpet solos, coming off in a way that sounds far better than most of his other attempts at this style from the time. Miller plays all the other instruments in the set, apart from some occasional guest work by players that include John Scofield, Earl Klugh, Omar Hakim, and Jason Miles. Titles include "Conchita", "Lament", "Los Feliz", "Lost In Madrid", "Siesta", "Kitt's Kiss", and "Wind". CD

Bill EvansParis Concert – Edition One ... CD
Elektra/Warner (Japan), 1979. Used ... $13.99
Sublime late live work from Bill Evans – a well-recorded performance for French radio, and one that really stands out from some of the scratchier late 70s concerts on the market! Bill's working here with a sound as sensitive and picturesque as the cover image – never pushing things too hard, but letting each tune unfold organically in waves of sound few other players could conjure up! Trio musicians include Marc Johnson on bass and Joe LaBarbera on drums – and titles on this first volume include "Quiet Now", "My Romance", "Noelle's Theme", "I Loves You Porgy", and "Up With The Lark".

Bill EvansWe Will Meet Again ... CD
Warner, 1979. Used ... $7.99
One of the few larger group Bill Evans sessions from the later years – an album that features sax and flute from Larry Schneider and trumpet from Tom Harrell – in addition to core trio instrumentation from Bill on piano, Marc Johnson on bass, and Joe LaBarbera on drums. The added horns really make the session sparkle – and although those players aren't on every number in the record, when they do show up they really help change the sound nicely from overly familiar Evans trio modes. Bill plays a bit of electric piano on the set – especially beautifully on the track "Only Child" – and other titles include "Comrade Conrad", "Peri's Scope", "We Will Meet Again", "Bill's Hit Tune", "Laurie", "Five", and "For All We Know".

Stephane GrappelliFeeling + Finesse = Jazz ... CD
Atlantic/Warner (Japan), 1962. Used ... $14.99
Really beautiful work from Stephane Grappelli – a record that's got its roots in the sound of his older Hot Club work, but which also carries itself with a sense of modernism that really opens things up! The sound here is sparer and simpler at times – without as much of the gypsy swing cliches that could sometimes override Grappelli's work. Thanks should partially be given to guitarist Pierre Cavalli, whose work brings in some fresher 60s tones on the solos – standing out nicely nice to the group's other rhythm guitarist – who's working alongside bassist Guy Pedersen and drummer Daniel Humair. Titles include "Nuages", "Django", "Daphne", "Le Tien", "Minor Swing", and "Soft Winds". CD

Bob JamesH ... CD
Tappan Zee/Warner, 1980. Used ... $9.99
The cover might be a bit gimmicky – with a giant image of a hot dog – but the album's actually one of the more sensitive outings from keyboardist Bob James at the time – a really refreshing blend of modes and styles, served up on Fender Rhodes, Oberheim, and acoustic piano! There's some fairly large arrangements in the mix, but they're never that overdone – and instead often leave plenty of room for the leader to solo out front – a bit like the way that larger charts worked for Hubert Laws during his time at CTI. Bob produced and arranged – and the record's still got some funkier moments in the mix as well. Titles include "Thoroughbred", "The Walkman", "Snowbird Fantasy", "Shepherd's Song", "Brighton By The Sea", and "Reunited". CD

Bob JamesTwo ... CD
CTI/Warner, 1975. Used ... $7.99
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – as happened with some of his later records on the Tappan Zee imprint. Here, James is still a master of space and sound – using the Fender Rhodes with bell-like tones to craft some key grooves that are still having an amazing impact today, more than 30 years after the album was initially recorded! There's a darkness here that we totally love – and tracks include the legendary "Take Me To The Mardi Gras", which has been sampled by Run DMC and loads of others – plus"The Golden Apple", "I Feel A Song", "You're As Right As Rain", "Farandole", and "Dream Journey".

✨✧ Quincy JonesBack On The Block ... CD
Quest/Warner, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last really all-star sets from Quincy Jones – and a record that reprises the format of some of his big records of the 70s – like Mellow Madness or Body Heat – in a way that has Quincy surrounding himself with top-shelf artists of all sorts, from jazz soloists, to hip hoppers, to R&B vocalists. Kool Moe Dee & Big Daddy Kane rap on a version of "Birdland" that also has solos from Miles, Diz, and James Moody; Take 6 sing on a mellow version of Ivan Lins' "Setembro (Brazilian Wedding Song)", Bobby McFerrin sings goofily on "Wee B Dooinit", Siedah Garrett and Al B Sure sing on "The Secret Garden", and a whole choir joins in on "Tomorrow".

Rahsaan Roland KirkBoogie-Woogie String Along For Real ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1977. Used ... $11.99
Roland Kirk's last album – and a return to traditional forms, as might be hinted at by the title! In a way, some of Kirk's later work is similar to that of Mingus – in that both had been pioneering modernists in their earlier years, then turned heavily towards the traditional forms that inspired their greatness in the first place. Of course, Kirk's work could never be totally "trad" – and even though the album has him running through more swing and boogie woogie material, it's still quite nutty, thanks to help from a hip group of players that includes William S Fischer, Steve Turre, and Hilton Ruiz. Titles include "Hey Babebips", "Make Me A Pallet On the Floor", "Watergate Blues", and "Dorthaan's Walk". CD

Warner, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet keyboards, R&B grooves, and a great blend of jazz and soul modes – all fused together to make the album one of Jeff Lorber's true classics from the 80s! Lorber's keyboards and programming provide the fusiony foil for the soulful vocals of Karyn White and Michael Jefferies on a number of tracks, but the album's also got some sweet instrumental groovers, too – such as the Caribbean inflected "Jamaica", and "Kristen" with more extroverted soloing from Lorber and a nice turn on fluegelhorn from Freddie Hubbard. Other titles include "Facts Of Love", "True Confessions", "Back In Love", "Private Passion", "Sand Castles", "Keep On Lovin' Her", and "Midnight Snack" . CD

One of Mingus' classic sessions from the middle period – a legendary blending of jazz with bluesy gospel touches, in a mode that seemed to move away from the politics of some of the late 50s years, and open up his work to a whole new audience! The band is an all-star ensemble all the way through – tentet that features Jackie McLean, Booker Ervin, John Handy, Pepper Adams, Jimmy Knepper, Willie Dennis, and Horace Parlan – cutting a line perfectly with Mingus on the album's 6 original tunes. Includes the oft-copied "Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting", plus "My Jelly Roll Soul", "E's Flat Ah's Flat Too", "Moanin", and "Tensions". Includes 4 bonus tracks – alternates from the album! CD

Morris NantonFlower Drum Song ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... $6.99
A completely fresh take on tunes from the show Flower Drum Song – done here all as trio numbers by pianist Morris Nanton, who handles the music with a lot more sensitive spin than the lyrical versions! Nanton's got this full, rich tone at this point in his career – a well-punctuated approach to piano that often draws strongly from the efforts of his left hand – but in a subtle way that still lets the right really take off in some warm flurries of notes! Nanton's got a surprisingly groovy sound throughout – and titles include "Sunday", "A Hundred Million Miracles", "Chop Suey", "I Am Going To Like It Here", and "Love Look Away". CD

Morris NantonRoberta ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... $11.99
Lost lyrical sounds from Morris Nanton – a player who only recorded a handful of albums, all of them great! Nanton's an unusual player – in that at one level, he's got this heavy left-hand style that's almost in a soul jazz mode – but also still manages some of the lighter, more whimsical sounds of the piano generation before – a bit like Phineas Newborn in the way he bridges both scenes, and a similar pivotal figure – although one who never got the same sort of due as Newborn! This album's a nicely laidback, wonderfully understated session for Warner – and features Norman Edge on bass and Charlie Persip on drums – on titles that include "The Touch Of Your Hand", "I Won't Dance", "Let's Begin", "You're Devastating", and "Lovely To Look At".

Sparkling work from arranger Marty Paich – one of our favorite large group talents of the 50s! The album definitely gets a boot out of us – not just for its sexy, shower-situated cover on the front – but also for its great approach to the music, penned here by Paich in ways that really let some of the key players step out and do their thing! The group is large, but always swinging – and players include Art Pepper and Bill Perkins on saxes, Conte Candoli and Jack Sheldon on trumpets, Bob Enevoldsen on trombone, and Victor Feldman on vibes – and tracks include "No More", "Moanin", "Warm Valley", "What Am I Here For", "Violets For Your Furs", and "It Don't Mean A Thing".

Lou Stein8 For Kicks 4 For Laughs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1954. Used ... $9.99
A unique little record – with some surprisingly nice touches! At some level, the record's got the feel of some of the east coast chamber jazz sets of the time – particularly those on Bethelehm and RCA – but at another level, there's a much more playful feel here, one that breaks down any genre conventions, especially in our expectations of the players. Stein's leading the group on piano, and working with a lineup that includes Billy Butterfield on trumpet, Peanuts Hucko on clarinet, Aaron Bell on bass, and Tony Mottola on guitar – turning in some really wonderful work that pushes the set in a number of different directions. You might expect a trad feel from the presence of Butterfield and Hucko, yet the album's got a playfully rhythmic groove that might be borrowed from trad, but which also has some great modern touches – made all the more so through Mottola's inventive work on guitar. Titles include "The Pendulum", "I Should Care", "Lou's Blues", "The Skull", and "When Your Lover Has Gone". CD

Gramavision/Warner (Japan), 1990. Used ... $19.99
Maybe not the funk of ages, but a mighty nice solo set from Bernie Worrell – done at a key stretch when he was working away from George Clinton and the P-Funk universe! The set's got Bernie opening up in a blend of jazz and funk – and some tracks feature lead vocals, in a style that takes off from his earlier solo album on Arista, but tuned here with a bit more of that electro vibe that the Gramavision album was doing so well at the time! Bernie handles much of the music himself, but there's plenty of key guests on the record too – rhythms from Sly & Robbie, more keyboards from Herbie Hancock, guitar from Keith Richards and Vernon Reid, and seven some backing vocals from David Byrne and other old associates from the P-Funk years. Titles include "Straight Ahead", "Sing", "Don't Piss Me Off", "Ain't She Sweet", "V Spy", "BW Jam", "Volunteered Slavery/Bern's Blues/Outerspaceways", and "Beware Of Dog". (Soul, Jazz) CD

Miles DavisRubberband ... CD
Rhino, 1986. Used ... $11.99
Great lost work from Miles Davis – early material recorded for Warner Brothers in the mid 80s, and never released at the time – now finally uncovered from the vaults, and presented with a few slight contemporary touches! The core music is prime electric Miles funk all the way through – a great first step into the territory that he'd explore at Warner in his final years, but also with some traces of the Columbia records from the few years before – strong trumpet solos amidst bold rhythms – given new life here from instrumentalists Randy Hall and Attala Zane Giles. The music has been updated from the original tapes – with a richer sound, and a vibe that sounds less dated – and vocals have been added in a few spots, including great work from Ledisi and Lalah Hathaway. Titles include "Rubberband Of Life", "Echoes In Time/The Wrinkle", "See I See", "I Love What We Make Together", "So Emotional", "Paradise", "Maze", and "Give It Up". CD
