✨✧ Alan PriceSavaloy Dip ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from the great Alan Price – known to some as one of the founding members of The Animals, but also a hell of an artist on his own – working here in a sweet blend of jazz, soul, and R&B elements – with a vibe that's very similar to his excellent collaborations with Georgie Fame! In fact, there's a groove here that's quite like Fame's brilliant late 60s/early 70s material – a sound that's quite different than you might expect from the 1974 recording date of the set – a truly timeless vibe that may make the set Alan's best-ever album! Yet oddly, the record was barely issued at the time – recorded, released, and pulled from the racks immediately – which means that even most Price fans have never heard the set – which finally gets its due with this well-done CD release. The quality of the songs is wonderful – some of Alan's best writing – and instrumentation is mostly lean, jazz-styled small combo backing – with far less production than most big label sets were getting at the time. Titles include "Savaloy Dip", "Pure Jimmy", "Smells Like Lemon Tastes Like Wine", "Willie The Queen", "Passin Us By", and "Country Life". CD

✨✧ Walter Bishop JrCoral Keys ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The keys are coral, and the sound is sublime – one of the greatest albums ever from pianist Walter Bishop Jr, and proof that he can really stretch out, given the right setting! The piano here is all acoustic, but there's an almost-electric vibe to the date – long, open tracks that sway and swell with some great spiritual energy – made even more wonderful by work from reedman Harold Vick, who plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax on the record – and makes it one of his best recordings ever! The reedwork alone is worth the price of admission – but the rhythms are also great too – a mix of soulful, modal, and some slight funky bits – handled by Reggie Johnson on bass, and either Idris Muhammad or Alan Benger on drums. Woody Shaw plays trumpet on some cuts, too – and titles include "Coral Keys", "Soul Turn Around", "Freedom Suite", "Track Down", "Waltz For Zweetie", and "Three Loves". CD
(Remastered with updated artwork and new liner notes.)

✨✧ Alan LightLet's Go Crazy – Prince & The Making Of Purple Rain (hardcover) ... Book
Atria, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The power of Purple Rain in the 80s has sometimes been dimmed by the passage of years – but author Alan Light brings back the spotlight to Prince's amazing achievement – and documents both the creation of the classic film and accompanying album, and its role not only in rising Price to the top of the pop heap at the time – but also in breaking down some wider boundaries in 80s American culture. Light's spent time at Rolling Stone and Vibe, and from that perspective he really gets at the way that Purple Rain drew in so many folks who'd never think to buy a soul record at all – nor follow an African-American artist, other than Jimi Hendrix. Book is hardcover, 298 pages. Book
(Spine has a remainder mark.)

ArtisticsWhat Happened ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch at the time, save maybe The Four Tops! Yet the style's way different than Motown, too – very much in that loping Brunswick soul style of the time, which means there's all these great grooves that really keep things going – even at mellower moments. Eugene Record produced and wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "What Happened", "Walking Tall", "With These Hands", "Why Did She Have To Leave Me", "When I'm Not Around", "Yesterday's Girl", and "Price Of Love".

Tubby HayesPortrait ... CD
Ember (UK), 1957/1959/1961. Used ... $6.99
Obscure work from British tenor giant Tubby Hayes – originally done for the Ember label – tracks recorded in 3 different sessions, all linked together in one nice-priced collection! The set kicks off with a version of "Guys And Dolls", done by Hayes with The Jazz Couriers combo with Ronnie Scott on tenor as well. Next up are 14 tracks done in 1959 with the quartet of Tony Crombie – and featuring Hayes on tenor, alto, flute, and vibes – as well as Alan Branscombe on tenor and alto. These tunes are especially nice, as they have a tight and well-composed feel, and many of them are originals by the group. Last up are 6 more tracks from 1961, done with the quintet of Tony Kinsey, and featuring Bill Lesage on piano and vibes and Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet. 21 tracks in all, with titles that include "On The Beat", "The Toff", "The Baron's Blues", "Weber The Great", "Portrait", "Runnymede Groove", "What A Gas", "Big Ben Bounce", and "Lakeland".

VariousCome Spy With Us – The Secret Agent Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those movies – cool jazz, vocal, and instrumental records that sometimes feature weird reworkings of more famous soundtrack numbers, sometimes lesser-known cuts from b-grade films, and sometimes fresh new spy numbers on their own! The style ranges from groovy guitar numbers to blaring jazzy tracks to slinky steppers that find a very cool balance between suspense and swing. Titles include "Dr Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine" by The Supremes, "The Last Of The Secret Agents" by Nancy Sinatra, "Theme From Danger Man" by Red Price, "A Man Alone" by John Barry, "Deadlier Than The Male" by The Walker Brothers, "Burke's Law" by Wynton Kelly, "We Should've" by Cleo Laine, "Our Man Flint" by Billy Strange, "Theme From Where The Spies Are" by Jimmy Smith, "The Liquidator" by Shirley Bassey, "I Spy" by Roland Shaw, "Come Spy With Me" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "High Wire" by Brian Fahey.

Chi-LitesGive It Away (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016 (delayed)
Excellent early material by The Chi-Lites – work that instantly soars above that of most of their contemporaries – with that incredible Windy City soul sound forged by the group's Eugene Record and producer Carl Davis! The groove is wonderful – free and easygoing, yet tight and right on the money too – lighter than the dancefloor styles of Detroit, a bit more sophisticated too – yet never apt to fall into all of the overly-emotive styles of the east coast too. This balance is what makes the group so wonderful – and really comes through on this early album – a treasure trove of songs penned by Eugene Record too! Titles include "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was", "Give It Away", "What Do I Wish For", "My Whole World Ended", "24 Hours Of Sadness", and "To Change My Love". CD has some great bonus tracks too – "Love Me", "Love Is Gone", "My Baby Loves Me", "Price Of Love", and "Baby It's Time". CD

✨✧ Stan KentonStan Kenton Conducts The Jazz Compositions of Dee Barton ... CD
Capitol, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too academically so – that perfect balance of swinging and thinking that marks some of the best Kenton albums over the years. All numbers are awash in those great Kenton tones and colors we love so much – and the group here features Mike Price on trumpet, Dick Shearer on trombone, Ray Reed on alto & flute, Mike Altschul on tenor, and Don Bagley on bass – as well as Kenton on piano and Barton on drums. Titles include "Man", "Lonely Boy", "Singing Oyster", "Dilemma", "Three Thoughts", "A New Day", and "Woman". CD

✨✧ Buddy MontgomerySo Why Not? (with bonus track) ... CD
Landmark (Japan), 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Buddy Montgomery's always one of those players who brings a little something extra to a record – and even on a late 80s set like this, he manages to make the session sound much better than you'd guess from the cover! Buddy plays vibes, piano, and keyboards – and although there's a few electric points that show the date of the recording, they're also very quickly offset with a richness of feeling that balances things out beautifully – so much so that we almost find ourselves liking the more electric moments better for Montgomery's approach. Other players include David Fathead Newman on tenor, Warren Gale on trumpet, Jim Nichols on guitar, and either Ron Carter or Jeff Chambers on bass, and Ralph Penland on drums. Some tracks have Latin percussion – which is an added treat – and titles include "So Why Not", "Waterfall", "Budini", "Out Of This World", "My Sentiments Exactly", and "Summer Nights". CD features the bonus track "My Little Brown Book". CD

✨✧ Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Le OrmeIn Concerto (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Philips (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those records that makes you sit up and say – "damn, those 70s Italian prog artists were really onto something!" Le Orme always sounded great on their studio records, but this live set has the group sounding even darker, even more ambitious than ever – really stretching out their instrumentation in ways that are neither too-macho jamming, nor too-noodly self indulgence – and which instead have this beautiful balance between rocking and experimentation – yet with a depth that's greater than their English or German contemporaries! Side one is worth the price of admission alone – the heady two-part "Truck Of Fire", which almost gets avant in its instrumentation at times – and side two features some shorter, but equally wonderful numbers that include "Sguardo Verso Il Cielo", "Collage", "Era Inverno", and "Ritorno Al Nulla". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition red & black vinyl!)
