Johnny Griffin/Art TaylorJamfs Are Coming ... CD
Timeless (Netherlands), 1975/1977. Used ... $14.99
The Jamfs are definitely coming on this one – as Johnny Griffin opens up into some of his most badass soloing of the 70s, caught here in an open-ended European styled mode! The album really features only 2 long tracks – recorded in the Cafe Montmartre style that Dexter Gordon used most famously at the time, but which Griffin also got a chance at as well, often with even more dynamic results. The group here features Art Taylor on drums, Rein De Graaff on piano, and either Henk Haverhoek or Koos Serierse on bass – and titles include "The Jamfs Are Coming/Wee Dot" and "All The Things You Are" – each taking up one side of the record!

Art BlakeyBackgammon ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
Killer work from this overlooked Art Blakey stretch of the mid 70s – a time when the drummer was getting back to basics, and re-igniting his music with help from some key younger players! This set sparkles with sharp tenor from the great David Schnitter – already a powerhouse out of the box, and driven onto new heights by Blakey! Also present is pianist Albert Dailey, whose conception helps bring in some fresh sounds to the Jazz Messengers universe – alongside flute player Ladji Camara, who also vocalizes on one cut. Yoshio Suzuki handles bass, and old line trumpeter Bill Hardman comes in to round out the group – on titles that include "Uranus", "Third World Blues", "Namfulay", and "Backgammon". CD

✨✧ PioneersBest Of The Pioneers ... CD
Trojan, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
Classic work from one of the coolest Jamaican trios at the end of the 60s – a group who certainly take their harmonic inspiration from American soul – but also fuse their vocals nicely onto rocksteady and early reggae rhythms! The Pioneers are certainly well-named – as their approach really helped open the door for countless acts to come – yet few folks did it as well as these guys – able to be sweet one minute, raw the next – and always hitting the right kind of groove. The set features a whopping 40 tracks from their years at Trojan Records – and titles include "The Battle Of The Giants", "Starvation", "Reggae Fever", "Driven Back", "Black Bud", "Personality", "You Don't Know Like I Know", "Storybook Children", "Long Shot Kick De Bucket", "Time Hard", "Samfie Man", "Riot In A Notting Hill", and "At The Discotheque".

VariousGhana Soundz 2 – Afro-beat, Funk & Fusion In 70's Ghana ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used ... $11.99
Mindblowing funk from 70s Africa – a collection that's overflowing with great rare bits! If you ever thought that the sound of Afro Funk was just Fela, Tony Allen, and Manu Dibango – think again, because this set will really expand your horizons! The package was expertly selected, compiled, and annotated by Afro Funk DJ Miles Cleret – a man who really knows his stuff, and who's spent most of his adult life tracking down obscure bits from all corners of the dark continent. This set focuses on funk grooves from the vastly-undocumented Ghana scene – and it's honestly one of the best collections of Afro Funk we've ever heard – smoking and heavy from bottom to top, and filled with great music that we never would have caught otherwise! An instant treasure – and with tracks that include "Africa Is Home" by Joe Mensah, "Atwer Abroba" by Ebo Taylor, "Disco Africa" by Ogyatanaa Show Band, "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" by Apagaya Show Band, "Kye Kye Pe Aware" by The Sweet Talks, "Mondo Soul Funky" by Ebo Taylor & Wuta Wazuri, "Samarin Bolga" by Uppers Chapter 2, "No Condition Is Permanent" by Marijata, and "Agbadza" by Uhuru Dance Band.

VariousSwingin' Dick's Shellac Shakers Vol 1 & 2 – Hot Jive, Jumpin' Jazz & Big Band R&B 78s ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... $15.99
Not the kind of record you might expect – neither a porno session, or a collection of work by artists named Richard – and instead, a sweet stack of rare tracks originally issued on 78rpm shellac – working together here in jiving jazzy brilliance! The work here is from the swing generation and beyond – with a strong focus on the sorts of sounds that would set the tone for the jump jive and R&B generation – including some especially nice vocal tracks! CD features 20 tracks in all – and titles include "Jam Man" by Slim Gaillard, "The Minor Drag" by Fats Waller, "I Got Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Old Joe's Hittin The Jug" by Stuff Smith & His Onyx Club Orchestra, "Caledonia" by Woody Herman, "Voodoo Woman Blues" by Jay McShann, "The Little Goose" by Rex Stewart's Big Eight, "Ball Of Fire" by Gene Krupa, "Bunch Of Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Root Hog Or Die" by The Harlem Hamfats, "Rip Up The Joint" by Sidney Bechet, "Jive" by Cab Calloway, "All The Cats Join In" by Roy Eldridge, "Raid The Joint" by Erskine Hawkins, "Harlem Rhumbain" by Hot Lips Page, and "Who Said Shorty Wasn't Coming Back" by Lucky Millinder.

✨✧ Harold CorbinSoul Brother – The Driving New Jazz Piano Of Harold Corbin ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set – and one that really lives up to the promise of its title! Harold Corbin is a hell of a driving pianist – one who grabs you right from the very first note, with the kind of soulful swing that might have been more at home on Chess/Argo Records at the time – especially in the company of Chicago pianists like Ramsey Lewis or John Young! Corbin's trio has as much of a sharp swing as those groups – with work from Spanky DeBrest on bass and Eddie Campbell on drums – both of whom can snap in the right groove at the right point, while Harold still gets plenty of space to stretch out and make magic on the keys! Titles include "Tunga", "Soul Brother", "JAMF's", "The Girl In The Window", "Caroline", and "Soul Sister". CD
