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".

✨✧ VariousTake Me To Jamaica – The Story Of Jamaican Mento ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great CD compilation of the pioneering Jamaican Mento scene of the 1950s – a revelatory movement that paved the way for the reggae to come! You don't need us to tell you the the roots of reggae run deep, but to date Mento has been under-compiled for modern collectors. The often calypso-esque music started as rural, rustic small group and vocal dance music before making a sultry turn in the bars of Kingston – and included bits of African percussion, playful vocals, fife, and bamboo instruments –eventually incorporating piano, strings, saxophone and other more modern sounds as the movement went urban. These tracks are produced in turns by Ken Khouri, Stanley Motta, and Ivan Chin with various vocalists and players. Amazing 50s music from Jamaica! 24 tracks in all: Tracks include "Ten Penny Nail" by Hubert Porter, "Samfi Man" by Count Lasher & His Quintet, "Monkey" by Lord Messam & His Calysonians, "Reap What You Sow" by Everart Williams & Chin's Calypso Sextet, "Green Guava" by Lord Tickler, "Parish Gal" by Harold Richardson & The Ticklers, "Wheel And Tun Me" by Lord Flea, "Come To Jamaica" by Alliandro Clarke & Chin's Calypso Set, "Let's Play Ring Jamaican Style (No. 1 Sally Water)" by Alerth Bedasse & Chin's Calypso Sextet and much more!
