✨✧ Jimmy RaneyJimmy Raney Visits Paris Vol 1 ... CD
Vogue/BMG, 1954. Used ... $8.99
A classic French session from one of the greatest American jazz guitarists of the 50s – the legendary Jimmy Raney, a player who mixed his hard-edge tone with a magically fluid groove! Jimmy's playing here on some great single-note lines – alongside a set of players that include Bobby White on drums, Red Mitchell on bass, and Sonny Clark on piano – coming together in a relaxed, intimate format – one that lets Jimmy's guitar get ample space to stretch out on the set. Titles include "Once In A While", "Body & Soul", "Stella By Starlight", and "You Go To My Head", along with alternate takes. CD

✨✧ AK SalimModern Sounds Of AK Salim – Complete Savoy Recordings 1957/1958 (Flute Suite/Stablemates/Pretty For The People/Blues Suite) ... CD
Savoy/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1957/1958. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A full serving of work from the amazing AK Salim – a 2CD set that brings together his complete sessions for Savoy Records! Salim was one of the father-reaching jazz musicians of his time, and always tried to create albums that had a more "tied together" approach than some of his contemporaries' albums. This approach usually resulted in a album like Flute Suite – one based around a "suite" of similar musical themes – in this case, a flute-based one from the dual frontline of Frank Wess and Herbie Mann, both of whom really shine in the setting! Other players include Joe Wilder on trumpet, Frank Rehack on trombone, and Hank Jones on piano – and Herbie Mann also plays a bit of tenor sax as well. The tunes are all originals by Salim, and really make great use of the twin-flute sound – and titles include "Loping", "Ballin The Blues", "Miltown Blues", "Pretty Baby", and "Duo Flautist". Next up on the CD is material from the album Stablemates – a session that has Salim leading a full horn section that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Johnny Coles on trumpet, Buster Cooper on trombone, and Howard Austin on baritone sax – all coming together in a way that's tightly arranged on the heads, but which lets key players break out in some really wonderful solo moments. Other players include Kenny Burrell on guitar and Tommy Flanagan on piano – and titles include "Black Talk", "D Minor Dipper", and "Dejeuner". Pretty For The People follows – a swirling batch of soulful jazz tracks, featuring an octet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Johnny Griffin on tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Max Roach on drums, and Chino Pozo on congas. Salim has a real talent for taking a group like this and making them swing hard – kind of in the way that Slide Hampton did on his early 60s sides for Atlantic, and with a similar soulful bent – especially given the strong percussion work on the set. The soloists break out of the group strongly on the best cuts – and all tunes are over five minutes long, with ample solo space. Titles include "Blu Binsky", "RU12", "Shirley Ray", "Ba Lu Ee Du", and "Pretty For The People". Next up is Blues Suite – a record that focuses on the bluer side of jazz, and features some excellent soloists – like Seldon Powell on flute and tenor, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, Nat Adderley on cornet, and Phil Woods on alto – all playing long soulful passages on Salim originals like "Payday", "Joybox", "Full Moon", and "Blu-Shout". The set's not as modernist oriented as similar work by some of Salim's contemporaries – still with an overall conception, but somewhat more looser swinging – and like some of AK's best other sessions from the time, has a feel that's quite like some of Slide Hampton's leaner, more soul jazz moments. CD also features the track "June Is Bustin Out All Over" – from the Savoy album Jazz Is Busting Out All Over. CD

✨✧ Chris Hazleton's Boogaloo 7Alright Now!/Stop Mr Ice Cream Man ... 7-inch
Sunflower Soul, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hammond funk and percussive boogaloo – the second 45 we've been lucky enough to hear from Chris Hazleton's Boogaloo 7 – even better than their first! "Alright Now!" kicks off with an organ groove with a thick tone, but comes like a cool breeze – leading the way for funky drums and hand percussion to set the groove – and with ample room for solos by the excellent players. "Stop Mr Ice Cream Man" is as rich of a treat as you'd expect given the title, again with some really fine solos. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cannonball AdderleyWhy Am I Treated So Bad? ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
If you ever needed a key example of the genius of Cannonball on Capitol Records, this tight little set may well be it! The record's got all the best elements of a Cannon classic firmly in place – production by David Axelrod, electric piano by Joe Zawinul, and some tremendously soulful work from Cannon and Nat Adderley on their respective horns – all presented with a sense of relaxed tightness (if we can use such a phrase) that's jaw-droppingly brilliant all the way through! Cannon speaks a bit and pushes the band into action with charisma and warmth caught nicely by Axelrod's recording – and the band grooves on long, snakey tunes that mix equal parts funk and soul jazz together, coming up with the quintessential Adderley groove on nearly every number! Tracks include the seminal "Why Am I Treated So Bad", plus "Mini Mama", "I'm On My Way", "One For Newk", "The Scene", "Yvette", and "The Other Side". LP, Vinyl record album

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that situation – kind of a quickie project issued by Mainstream Records to cash in on the hit – but it's also an amazing bit of lost funk, and a record that's lasted for years in the hearts of beatheads! The group's a studio combo headed by Richard Fritz – and includes funky drummer Paul Humphrey, organist Charles Kynard, and guitarist David T Walker – all players we can trust to keep things groovy. The record does include a version of "Soul Makossa" that's pretty great – but even better is the breakbeat classic "House Of The Rising Funk", apparently the same version of the track that was issued on a 45 under the name The Chubukos. Other nice ones include "Kissing My Love", "Hot Mud", "Get It", "Hot Doggin", and "Let Me Do My Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersFever ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely catchy groover that's very much in the mode of "Running Away", with plenty of choppy funky riffs, and a good soul base at the core. Even better, though, is the mellow spacey side of Roy – which shows up wonderfully in the cuts "Is It Too Late To Try" and "If You Love Me" – two overlooked gems that float along in a perfect blend of jazz and modern soul, with great breathy vocals and vibes, very much in the spirit of stuff on the You Send Me album. Other cuts include "I Wanna Feel It", "Leo", "Take Me Out To The Ball Game", and "Simple & Sweet" – all nice too! CD

Roy AyersHe's Coming ... CD
Polydor/Universal, 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the rarest and greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – the sly, funky and spiritual masterpiece He's Coming from 1971 – really the beginning of the funk years from Roy Ayers Ubiquity! This one's a totally solid mix of soulful jazz, jazzy soul and righteous funk – and it's straight up wonderful all the way through – with a groove that's hugely influential to say the least! Includes the amazing track "We Live In Brooklyn Baby", which has a slow sample bassline in the intro that's just incredible – plus groovy cuts like the spiritual funk classic "He's a Superstar", "He's Coming", and "Sweet Tears". The lineup includes Sonny Fortune on soprano sax and flute and Billy Cobham drums and percussion, and the record's co-arranged by Harry Whitaker, who's also on keys and vocals – with other tracks include "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", "Ain't Got Time", "I Don't Know How To Love Him", "Sweet Butterfly Of Love" and "Fire Weaver". Amazing stuff, really a beautiful encapsulation of Roy Ayers in peak form! CD

AztecaPyramid Of The Moon (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1973. Used ... $14.99
A really special record from a really special group – one of two sublime 70s gems from Azteca – a wicked blend of jazz, funk, Latin, and soul – all put together by a young Coke Escovedo! Coke's ostensibly the leader of the group, but there's also a richly collaborative feel going on – a style that brings together jazz players like Tom Harrell on trumpet, Mel Martin on saxes, George Muribus on Fender Rhodes, and Flip Nunez on organ – and Latin players like Victor Pantoja on congas, Coke Escovedo on timbales, and Pete Escovedo on added percussion. In fact, the set's a key early example of the strength of the Escovedo family – and like their best later efforts, the set really stretches out and pushes the boundaries of conventional genres. There's also some great guest work from Lenny White on drums, Mike Nock on keyboards, and Neal Schon on guitars – and vocals are by a range of singers who really keep things fresh. Titles include "Red Onions", "Mazatlan", "Whatcha Gonna Do", "Mexicana, Mexicana", and "Love Is A Stranger". CD

Richard BerryYama Yama! – The Modern Recordings 1954 to 1956 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99
Raunchy R&B from the great (and vastly underrated) Richard Berry! Berry was a key singer in the west coast scene of the 50s – with a style, sound, and raw sense of power that makes him as important a pre-soul figure as Johnny Guitar Watson and Larry Williams! The set's got 28 cuts in all – all from Richard's hard raw soul years in LA – and work is a great example of the strong solo acts that were part of the second-generation R&B underground after the first wave of hard rockers in the early 50s. The CD's packed with great notes on Berry's career at the time, and features work recorded for the Flair and RPM labels – with The Dreamers, Etta James, The Cadets, and Rickey & Jennell. Titles include "Daddy Daddy", "The Big Break", "Wait For Me", "Rockin Man", "Look Out Miss James", "Hey Henry", "Yama Yama Pretty Mama", and "Get Out Of The Car", one of the fiercest date-rape songs we've ever heard!

Terence BlanchardBreathless ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
Terence Blanchard in all his many moods – some funky, some somber, and some quite serious! The album begins with a remake of "Compared To What" – done with vocals from PJ Morton, and fueled by rhythm samples from the original Les McCann and Eddie Harris version – but the music then shifts into work that recalls the sophistication of Blanchard's soundtrack material – some great mellower cuts that have Terence's trumpet gliding out spaciously over guitar from Charles Altra and piano and keyboards from Fabian Almazan. Morton makes a few more returns on the record – bringing things up to more soul-based territory at points – and Dr Cornel West appears on one track too, as a way of furthering the righteous quality of the record. Titles include "Everglades", "See Me As I Am", "Talk To Me", "Tom & Jerry", "I Ain't Got Nothin But Time", "Cosmic Warrior", "Soldiers", "Compared To What", and "Shutting Down". CD

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

✨✧ James BrownBring It On ... LP
Augusta Sound, 1983. Very Good+ ... $6.99
No longer recording for Polydor or TK after moving to the small Augusta Sound label – James is still sounding pretty good here, at least as good as on any of his late Polydor albums. The cut "Bring It On" is an example of the fast funk sound that James was hitting at the end of the 70s. Plus, there are also a couple of other nice numbers, like "You Can't Keep A Good Man Down", which has a pretty classic James/JBs sound to it, and "Today", which is a spacey instrumental with some nice organ playing (by James, we assume). Side two feature three remakes of classics – including "The Right Time" and "For Your Precious Love" – done in a straighter soul style than you'd expect. LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownPayback ... CD
Polydor, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A masterpiece of funky soul – and one of the greatest albums of the early 70s! It all comes together on this one – funk, soul, politics, and production – and the record is still one of the clearest examples of James Brown's genius that you'll ever find! Recorded during the same sessions as the JBs album Damn Right I Am Somebody – Payback has the group backing James with amazing intensity, playing on and on for very long stretches, improvising jams that perfectly match the vocals, which are often as improvised as the music. The most famous example of this style at work is "The Payback", which begins with a simple head arrangement, then has James riffing off on politics and power, letting the band come in at just the right moment, dropping solos that are still some of the best ever recorded on a funk album. The rest of the album's equally great, and even though most tracks run close to 10 minutes, and the album's a 2LP set, most of the material stays fresher than any 3 minute funk record we've ever heard. Some tracks are separated by these cool voices that rise up as seques – and titles include "Stone To The Bone", "Mind Power", "Take Some Leave Some", and "Shoot Your Shot". CD

Enough soul power to run a whole generator! James is in stunning form with the JBs – and the whole thing grooves with a choppy guitar riff that you'll recognize immediately from a million 80s hip hop samples. The whole band has "Got the Feelin!", and the track jams nicely with lots of spoken bits and nice solos! 7-inch, Vinyl record

An excellent example of the massive groove that Ray Bryant set up during his 60s years at Cadet – a simple soul jazz trio style, but augmented with dual horn backing – which makes for a tightly stepping sound that's all-soulful, all the way! Bryant's left hand is nice and hard on the keys – pumping out a strong rhythm, even on the solos – and the record's got a clean and tight groove that really sparkles with a mix of earthiness and sophistication that's totally great. Titles include the very hip "Lonesome Traveler", plus "Cubano Chant", "Brother This N Sister That", "Gettin' Loose", and "The Blue Scimitar". CD

Vernon BurchGet Up ... LP
Chocolate City/Casablanca, 1979. Sealed ... $24.99
Bouncy, bubbly soul from Vernon Burch – one of his stone dancefloor classics from the 70s, served up with a groove that never quits! Burch is one of the few who can make a clubby set sparkle with the more personal qualities of a mellower soul album – and this excellent set is a great example of his style at the time. Production is by James Gadson, who also plays funky drums in the small backing combo – along with keyboards from Michael Thompson and guitar from Burke himself. Titles include the slightly bizarre transgender tune "Sammy Joanne (One Half Woman One Half Man)" – but other numbers are all pretty great, and include "Get Up", "Arrogant Lady", "Once Again In My Life", "Never Can Find The Way", and "For You".

Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... CD
Cadet, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in between every song, done in a sparer folksy style that recalls Terry's roots in the Old Town scene in Chicago. At the time, Terry was making the transition from folk artist to soul singer – and he'd been picked up by Jerry Butler and The Dells as a promising young songwriter, one of the best talents of the second generation of Chicago soul stars. The record's a stripped-down affair that features a small group with Charles Stepney on harpsichord and organ, Callier on guitar, and backing vocals by Minnie Riperton, Shirley Wahls, and Kitty Haywood. The album kicks off with Terry's great little pop ditty "Ordinary Joe" – probably the catchiest song he ever wrote – then rolls into more somber titles like "Occasional Rain", "Do You Finally Need A Friend", "Golden Circle", and "Blues For Marcus". A totally unique album – and a prime example of the genius that was coming out of Chicago at the time! CD

Larry CarltonStrikes Twice/Sleepwalk/Friends ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), 1980/1982/1983. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A trio of guitar classics from Larry Carlton – all brought together in a single package! On Strikes Twice, Larry Carlton looks a little cheesy on the cover, but the album's a classic set of mainstream fusion from the start of the 80s – exactly the kind of record that made Carlton one of the standouts of the time! Larry actually sings a bit on the set, but the main focus is on his guitar work – often as sharp-edged as the lightning lines on the cover image – but with a warmer, soulful undercurrent too – one that bubbles along nicely, thanks to keyboards from Greg Mathieson and Don Freeman, and cool percussion from the great Paulinho Da Costa. The best tunes here have that warmly melodic feel you'd find in some of Pat Metheny's work, although with a bit more soul overall – and titles include "Springville", "Strikes Twice", "Ain't Nothin For A Heartache", "For Love Alone", "Mulberry Street", and "In My Blood". Sleepwalk is a real gem from guitarist Larry Carlton – a set that's very jazzy, but which also shows the strong focus he'd developed on his rock session work in the 70s – including some famous recordings with Steely Dan! There's a sharpness to Carlton's guitar that cuts through some of the sleepier modes of fusion players of the time – a style that's right out front, able to solo with a great sense of voice, but also no cheesier sounds as well – very appealing to fans of 70s guitar fusion, and Carlton's great blend of soulful undercurrents as well. Titles include "Sleepwalk", "Last Night", "Blues Bird", "Upper Kern", "10:00pm", and "You Gotta Get It While You Can". On Friends, Larry Carlton's got plenty of great friends on board for this sweet session – including Michael Brecker on tenor, Joe Sample and Terry Trotter on Fender Rhodes, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, and even BB King on guitar for one track! Yet the overall vibe is still very much Larry's own – that sharp approach to fusion that Carlton helped spearhead with his work in the 70s, a bit more keyboard-centric than before, but still with plenty of room for the leader to spin out warmly chromatic solos on guitar. Titles include "South Town", "Breaking Ground", "Song In The 5th Grade", "LA NY", and "Friends". CD

A great example of the cool, classy swing that Benny Carter hit in the 1960s – a groove that was more regularly brought to backings for standout singers of the time, but which also works beautifully here in an instrumental mode! Carter's alto sax is at the top of the charts, but the album's almost more of an ensemble effort overall – with great reed work from Bud Shank on alto, Teddy Edwards and Bill Perkins on tenor, Bill Hood on baritone sax, Don Abney on piano, Barney Kessell and Mundell Lowe on guitar – all coming together as kind of a mini-large ensemble – never that big in the number of players, but grooving with a great sense of poise, class, and soul. There's a number of originals written by Carter, including "Doozy", "Prohibido", "Come On Back", "Rock Bottom", "We Were In Love", and "Titmouse" LP, Vinyl record album

Billy CobhamCrosswinds ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good ... $4.99
A masterful album from Billy Cobham – and maybe the best 70s record to really demonstrate the unique place he found for himself in 70s fusion! The album soars with a sound that really lives up to its cover image – but it's also not the heavy-jamming affair of some of Billy's more rockish records from the time. Instead, it's got this wonderful blend of deeper elements that really come together wonderfully – and some very strong use of reeds from Michael Brecker, trumpet from Randy Brecker, and trombone from the great Garnett Brown – all players who give the album a very rich, soulful voice. The set includes the famous sample track "Heather", a very dope, very mellow cut with great electric keyboard work by George Duke – and other titles include "Crosswind", "The Pleasant Pheasant", and "Spanish Moss – A Sound Portrait".

The funkiest album ever recorded by Lyn Collins – a stone solid set that really lives up to the legacy of her funky 45s! Like those gems, this one has Collins working with James Brown on production and the JBs in the background – creating a razor-sharp groove that's probably the closest any female singer ever came in the 70s to matching The Godfather's groove! The album's got Lyn shifting between heavy funk numbers and mellower soul cuts – really pushing things to the max with an incredibly deep take on a few older favorites, plus some killer new numbers – all produced to funky perfection, with just the right sort of balance between the rough and the tight. Titles include her great version of "Think", a funky sample cut that never gets old – plus the cuts "Things Got To Get Better", "Women's Lib", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Just Won't Do Right", "Wheels Of Life", and the funkiest version ever of "Fly Me To The Moon".
