Tarika BlueVery Best Of Tarika Blue ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), Late 70s. Used ... $7.99
A great collection featuring some of the best work by this classic 70s smooth fusion combo! Tarika Blue were labelmates to the James Mason group on Chiaroscuro – and the sound of this album's similar to Mason's best work: jazzy, souful, polished, but never lacking a depth and a commitment to grooving! Mason plays guitar on a number of tracks – and other players in the group include Justo Almario on sax, Ryo Kawasaki on guitar, and Irene Datcher on vocals. Titles include "Things Spring", "Love It", "Dreamflower", "You'll Be With Me", "Truth Is The Key", and "Out of This World". CD contains 2 bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Johnny Griffin/Art TaylorJamfs Are Coming ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1975/1977. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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!

✨✧ Johnny GriffinBush Dance – Bush Dance/Call It Whachawana ... CD
Galaxy, 1978/1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 later albums by Johnny Griffin – both recorded after his return to the US during the late 70s! Bush Dance is a pretty interesting little set – one that features Griffin working in an easygoing combo with slight electric touches – a group that features George Freeman on guitar, alongside Cedar Walton's acoustic piano, plus bass by Sam Jones, drums by Albert Heath, and percussion and congas from Kenneth Nash. The mixture of guitar and congas gives the album a very different feel than some of Griffin's other work – almost a lighter soul jazz touch that recalls some of the best Muse Records sides from the time. Tracks are long, and rhythms get nice and free at times – and titles include a 17 minute take on "Night In Tunisia" that really gets a bit wild, plus "Since I Fell For You", "Bush Dance", "Knucklebean", and "The JAMFs Are Coming". Call It Whatchawanna is a more straight-ahead album, and a great one too – recorded with a youthful and soulful rhythm combo that features Mulgrew Miller on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums – all supporting Griffin with warm round tones that work perfectly with his open solo style. Titles include "I Mean You", "Lover Man", "Call It Whachawanna", and "A Waltz With Sweetie". CD
(Because of time constraints, the title "Jabbo's Revenge" was left off the CD.)
