Johnny Griffin/Art TaylorJamfs Are Coming ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1975/1977. New Copy ... $13.99
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!

PioneersLong Shot ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $12.99
An early gem from The Pioneers, and one of the first records on the Trojan label too – the kind of head-nodding, late rocksteady sounds that made the imprint a key bridge between the scenes in Kingston and London at the end of the 60s! The Pioneers have a bit more complex vocal interplay than other Jamaican vocal groups of the time – an ability to harmonize together, but break out a bit too – trading lines with increasing complexity that reflects the growing expressiveness that would flower more strongly in roots music during the 70s – turned here towards themes that are a bit less global, but even more charming in that respect. There's a wonderfully unified feel to the whole album – and titles include "Caranapo", "Long Shot Kick De Bucket", "Black Bud", "Lucky Side", "Samfie Man", "Mother Ritty", "Bring Him Come", and "Boss Festival".

✨✧ Johnny GriffinLive At Ronnie Scotts ... CD
In & Out (Germany), 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last recordings ever made by the legendary Johnny Griffin – a live date in honor of Griffin's 80th birthday, and one that shows the tenorist still very much at the top of his game! The group's an all-star lineup – with Roy Hargrove's trumpet and flugelhorn joining Griffin in the frontline – plus piano from David Newton and drums from Billy Cobham. Tracks are often long, and taken in that solo-focused mode you're likely to hear at Ronnie Scotts – although this date is a lot better recorded than some of the live material from the club in earlier years. Titles include "Lester Leaps In", "When We Were One", "Mentor", "The Blues Walk", "Hot Sake", and "The Jamfs Are Coming". CD
