Art PepperArt Of Pepper – The Complete Aladdin Recordings Vol 3 ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff by Art Pepper – originally issued only on tape, and kind of lost in his catalog – and like many albums of his 50s work released after the fact, this one almost blows away some of his best known records! The material was recorded in 1957, and was only ever issued on pre-recorded tape by the Omega Tape Company, so it's one of the rarest 50s sessions by Pepper. The set's got a harder groove than most of his record on Contemporary – which is great with us, because we can finally hear the emotion and tone that Pepper is always credited with, but which doesn't always show up on record. The group's a small one, with Ben Tucker on bass, Chuck Flores on drums, and the late LA bopper Carl Perkins on piano. Titles include "Surf Ride", "Begin The Beguine", "Holiday Flight", "Webb City", and "Too Close For Comfort". CD

Art PepperArt Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section ... CD
Contemporary/Universal (Japan), 1957. Used ... $9.99
One of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential "east meets west" jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for the first and only time (it's said that Art didn't even know of the date until the morning of the session). Pepper is one of the few alto players to really establish his own voice on the horn, without aping Bird, and his emotive playing really shines here. A definitive version of "Straight Life" is on this album, along with "Waltz Me Blues", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To". and "Star Eyes". CD

Tampa/Omnivore, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.99
Incredible work from alto genius Art Pepper – one of our favorite albums ever by the saxophonist – and a set that we actually love even more than his classic albums for the Contemporary label! Art's in a setting here that really lets him put a lot of edginess on his horn – demonstrating that sharper tone he brought to the alto, with a lot of bite in the best sort of setting – of which this album is one! The group is nicely focused – and includes Russ Freeman on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, and Gary Frommer on drums – working with Art to give the album a very urgent, upfront sort of vibe. The set's comprised of nearly all original tracks – and titles include "Arts Opus", "Pepper Pot", "Val's Pal", and "Diane". LP, Vinyl record album

The whole thing swings in a way that's tough to find on some of Pepper's other albums from the time, and the track list includes "Dianne's Dilemma", "Blues In", "Blues Out", and "Cool Bunny". CD

Jazz West/Blue Note, 1956. Used ... $6.99
Given that Pepper was on and off the LA scene a fair bit in the 50s – due to personal trouble and legal battles – this album's not so much "the return", as it is one of Pepper's many strong steps back into the studio, a place in which he demonstrated an uncanny ability to craft brilliant work, despite the turmoil going on around him. The set's as classic as you can get for Pepper – right down to the classic William Claxton photo on the cover (which has a chilling story that you'll find in Art's autobiography). Players include Jack Sheldon, Russ Freeman, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne – and titles include "Pepper Returns", "Funny Blues", "Angel Wings", "Walkin Out Blues", "Five More", "Minority", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

Art PepperSurf Ride ... LP
Savoy, 1952/1954. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 19.98
A classic 50s album on Savoy – a set that's almost as memorable for its cartoony cover as it is for the great Art Pepper material on the record! Pepper's tone here is wonderful – that sharper-edged, more soulful approach that you often get in his smaller label 50s work – a nice contrast to some of the smoother sides of Art, and the part of his sound we really love. The album's got three different west coast groups working with Pepper – with players who include Russ Freeman or Hampton Hawes on piano, Jack Montrose on tenor, Joe Mondragon or Monte Budwig on bass, and Larry Bunker or Bobby White on drums. But Art's the main star of the set – blowing beautifully throughout, with both jaw-dropping precision and a tremendous sense of sound! Titles include "Tickle Toe", "Chili Pepper", "Susie The Poodle", "Brown Gold", "Holiday Flight", "Surf Ride", "Straight Life", "Cinnamon", and "Thyme Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Pepper with Bill WatrousWest Coast Sessions Vol 4 – Bill Watrous (Funk N Fun – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
The cover says Art Pepper, but the record's one of our favorite albums ever cut under the leadership of trombonist Bill Watrous – a set that was part of a Japanese-only series that brought together some of the best players on the west coast scene at the end of the 70s! Watrous is maybe not as well-associated with the older LA jazz world as some of his associates on the set – who include the great Art Pepper on alto sax and Russ Freeman on piano – both of whom really open up in compelling ways next to Bill's trombone – especially Pepper, as he often wasn't recording with such a horn on his own albums of the time. The rest of the combo features Bob Magnusson on bass and Carl Burnett on drums – and the easygoing vibe of the record really makes for some well-shaped, well-blown notes from Watrous. Titles include "Funny Blues", "P Town", "For Art's Sake", "Begin The Beguine", "Angel Eyes", and "Just Friends". CD also features two bonus alternate takes! CD

Art Pepper with Lee KonitzWest Coast Sessions Vol 3 – Lee Konitz (High Jingo – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A mighty meeting of two modern alto giants – a set cut under the leadership of Lee Konitz, but which also features some great work from Art Pepper too! Both Pepper and Konitz were two of the most distinctive players to emerge in the 50s – both in the generation after Charlie Parker first set the horn on fire with his bebop creations – but both very individual, distinct players who took the music in fresh new directions. That distinctness really comes through here – as both Lee and Art blow together wonderfully, crossing lines and taking off on solos with a gentle swing that comes from the support of Michael Lang on piano, Bob Magnsusson on bass, and John Dentz on drums. Most tracks are very alto-heavy – in a great way – and the session was originally only ever issued in Japan, as part of the Atlas Records "West Coast Today" series. Titles include "Minor Blues In F", "Whims Of Chambers", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "This Can't Be Love". CD features two bonus alternate takes, too! CD

A unique large group session from Art Pepper – one of his few this way as a leader, despite constant 50s presence as a sideman in big ensembles! Arrangements are by Marty Paich, who more than makes things swing – and there's a nice rhythm section dancing underneath a larger group – with Russ Freeman on piano, Joe Mondragon on bass and Mel Lewis on drums. Players in the fuller lineup include Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Herb Geller on alto, Bill Perkins on tenor, and Bob Enevoldsen on trombone and tenor – and titles are mostly modern numbers written by other jazzmen like Horace Silver, Denzil Best, Jimmy Giuffre, and Sonny Rollins. Titles include "Groovin High", "Move", "Four Brothers", "Anthropology", and "Airegin". LP, Vinyl record album

Art's blowing with a quiet intensity here – not as far out as you might expect from the title, but with that crisp genius that still graced all of his records from the time! The album features a quartet with Dolo Coker on piano, Jimmy Bond on bass, and Frank Butler on drums – working in a format that gives Art center stage, blowing with a slightly raspy tone that still always sends chills up our spine! There's a maturity here that we really like – that later Contemporary mode that has Pepper breaking things down a bit more than usual, and showing a bit more humanity in his horn. Titles include "Too Close For Comfort", "Gone With The Wind", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "I Love You". CD also features the bonus track "Five Points". CD

Pacific Jazz/Blue Note, 1956. Used ... $2.99
That's "Heath", not "health" – as you might think the title's misspelled – as in Jimmy Heath, who arranged most of the numbers on the set! Heath's contribution is a good one too – as it helps Baker create one of his most tightly-wrapped albums of the time, a well-blown session recorded here with a group that includes Art Pepper on alto, Phil Urso on tenor, Carl Perkins on piano, and Lawrence Marable on drums. The presence of Urso is especially appreciated – as his sharper, deeper tone really brings a wider sound to the album than some of Chet's other dates of the time – especially when combined with the excellent sound of Pepper! Titles include "CTA", "For Minors Only", "For Miles & Miles", and "Resonant Emotions". CD

Incredible work – and one of Kenton's greatest records! This "concert" brings together material perfectly paired to demonstrate Kenton's keen talent for modern jazz that still swings heavily! Players on the set include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Bud Shank, and Shorty Rogers – and the tunes are short little paintings in sound – building off the Kenton styles of the swing years, but moving towards the more abstract styles of later years, yet still managing to keep their groove. The titles alone give a great idea of the sound – and tunes include "Elegy For Alto", Lament", "Monotony", and "Impressionism". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan KentonEasy Go ... CD
Capitol, Early 50s. Used ... $1.99
A cool collection of Capitol material from Stan Kenton – mostly sides from his classic years of the early 50s! The work here shows a lively, more upbeat side of Kenton's music – one that still has some modern moments, but which is more in a west coast big band style overall. All tracks are from the years 1950 to 1952 – recorded after the financial failure of Stan's Innovations orchestra, and before his New Concepts group – all sessions that were supposedly "commercial" in nature, to help Kenton recoup some losses – but which still represent the forefront of jazz on the west coast at the time! Arrangers include Shorty Rogers, Pete Rugolo, Gene Roland, Bill Russo, and Johnny Richards – and soloists include Art Pepper on alto, Bud Shank on reeds, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Conte Candoli on trumpet. 20 tracks in all – including "Riff Raff", "Dynaflow", "Easy Go", "Viva Prado", "Francesca", "Soliloquy", "Lazy Daisy", "Beehive", "Cool Eyes", "Bill's Blues", "Night Watch", and "Jump For Joe".

A brilliant collection of work from Stan Kenton – recordings from his Innovations Orchestra, the groundbreaking group from the years 1950 and 1951, which featured players that include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, and Laurindo Almeida! The work features Kenton in some of his most modern modes – taking the broad range of colors and tones he first started forging in the late 40s, and fusing them onto some modern jazz ideals of the early 50s. The result is some incredible music that still sounds extremely fresh today – tracks that still have a swinging rhythm and jazz-based solos, but which also have a keen ear towards the 20th Century Classical Music of mid century. Titles include Chico O'Farrill's haunting "Cuban Episode", with vocals and conga by Carlos Vidal – plus the haunting "Conflict", with a June Christy wordless vocal, and the titles "Trajectories", "Incident In Jazz", and "Solitaire".

A pretty nice jazz tribute to the Billy Wilder film of the same name – and one that reprises a number of tunes from the film, especially popular songs of the 20s – but brings them back in a way that's still got plenty of hip 50s jazz touches! The record's nicely without the hoke that came with a lot of the music in the movie – thanks to a lineup that includes Art Pepper (on tenor, alto, and clarinet!), Joe Gordon, Jimmy Rowles, and Jack Marshall – playing a bit of rhythm guitar in addition to Barney Kessel's main solo one! And if there ever was a record to illustrate the old jazz adage "it ain't the song, it's the singer", this record may be it – because Barney and crew really work some magic with old chestnuts like "I Wanna Be Loved By You", "Sugar Blues", "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Runnin Wild", "By The Beautiful Sea", and "I'm Through With Love".

The album features a shifting array of players throughout – small modern groups on side one, with Bill Russo on trombone, Conte Candoli on trumkpet, Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Art Pepper on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on tenor, Bob Gordon on baritone, and Shelly Manne on drums – all playing in modes that are similar to some of the small group Kenton offshoot material for other labels, or to some of Rogers' important early sides for Capitol and RCA. Titles on this side include "Deep People", "Count On Rush Street", "Slightly Brightly", "Princess Of Evil", and "All Of Me" – which features a vocal by Shelly!

This wonderful set features Carmichael working with sublime small combo backing – players who include Harry Edison, Jimmy Rowles, and Art Pepper – working with arrangements penned by Johnny Mandel.

The group features Claude Williamson on piano, Cluck Flores on drums, and Don Prell on bass – but the real talent is Bud, whose work on alto makes the album sparkle like a rare jewel.

Classic West Coast session, long hailed by critics as one of the best to come out of the LA scene. Shorty Rogers leads a crack group of players (Art Pepper, Jimmy Giuffre, Bob Cooper) through a bunch of short swinging tracks that really have an edge to them. One of the best things Rogers ever did, released here on the original RCA 10" LP, in beautiful shape! LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is great! Cover has some light wear and a few light pen notes on back – but no splits.)

John Dankworth/Sammy Davis, Jr.Salt & Pepper – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A groovy little soundtrack to this strange film that starred Sammy D & Peter Lawford – with some excellent mod tracks written by British jazzman Johnny Dankworth! The album ranks with Dankworth's best from the 60s – and the tracks have a punchy sound that mixes plenty of strong jazz soloing with some more whimsical soundtrack type arrangements. Sammy sings vocals on the tracks "Salt & Pepper" and "I Like The Way You Dance" – and other tracks include "Fine Flavour", "Chase In A Mini Moke", "Submarine Chase", "Flight For An Island", and "Quiet Ending".

Earth Wind & FireReal Earth Wind & Fire – The Ultimate Collection (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Sony (UK), 1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $9.99 13.99
A fantastic collection of work from one of our favorite groups of all time – a jazz/soul combo born in our hometown of Chicago, and one who soared out to the masses in the 70s – to bring a message of pride and spirit to the world! This 3CD set features a huge amount of material from the group's first decade on record – a mix of both big hits and lesser-known album gems from the Columbia Records 70s years – peppered with just a bit of other material here and there, which leaves most of the focus on the kind of soaring sounds that first made the group so great. We've loved these records for decades, but they still never fail to make our hears leap with joy – and taken together, as a 45 track set, the music really seems to pack an extra sort of punch! Titles include "Keep Your Head To The Sky", "Mighty Mighty", "Got To Get You Into My Life", "Open Our Eyes", "Sing A Song", "Sun Goddess (live)", "That's The Way Of The World", "Burning Bush (shout it from the mountain mix)", "Brazilian Rhyme", "Love's Holiday", "I'll Write A Song For You", "Jupiter", "September", "Let's Groove", "In The Stone", "After The Love Has Gone", "Kalimba Story", "Shining Star", "Evil", "On Your Face", "Biyo", "Love Music", "Spirit", "Reasons", "Wanna Be With You", "Fall In Love With Me", "Boogie Wonderland", and "Can't Let Go".

Larry Joseph with Luci Martin & Dee ScottYoung Giants Of Platinum Funk Vol 1 – You're The Best (vocal, extended mix)/Irresistible ... 12-inch
City Of Dreams, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
A sweet 80s-styled groove from bassist Larry Joseph – one that's peppered with some tightly riffing guitar and great piano fills – and topped with soaring lead vocals from Luci Martin of Chic! The whole thing sounds like it might have been done right during the mid 80s run of Chic (there's no date on the record) – and the extended mix has some nice bassy bits too! Dee Scott sings on "Irresistible" – with a style that's a bit more in the higher range of the soul vocal spectrum, which suits the catchy hook of the track wonderfully! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ozzie TorrensBoogaloo In Apartment 41 ... LP
Decca/El Sonido, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Monster Latin jazz and boogaloo – all the way through! The album's a rare gem from the short-lived Latin Soul years on Decca – cut by Ozzie Torrens, and featuring a great Latin lineup that includes Louie Ramirez on vibes, Charlie Palmieri on piano, and Manny Duran on trumpet – all swinging in very soulful formation, and going for the stripped-down small combo sound that the Spanish Harlem kids were using on the indie labels at the time! The tracks are all instrumentals – with heavy duty playing all the way through, and loads of rhythmic tracks that are peppered with some sock-solid jazzy solo work! The whole thing's a swinger – and titles include "Ozzaboo", "Boogaloo In Apt 41", "Way Out Mambo", "Cool Jerk", "Mia's Boogaloo", and "Tijuana Grass". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oton Kvartetti/Wasama Tuominen Trio/Pentti HietaneJazz Liisa 7 & 8 – Live In Studio 1974/1976 ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1973/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hip quartet of jazz performances – all recorded for Finnish radio in the 70s – presented here with beautiful sound as a stunning look at the under-tapped talent in that scene at the time! First up is a 19 minute track titled "Lydian Feeling" – performed by a quartet that includes Otto-Tapio Nevanlinna on violin, but featuring maybe even stronger Fender Rhodes work from Jukka Linkola – who dominates the tune in the beginning, then still continues to soar once the bass and drums kick in! Next up are two tracks by the Trio of Jukka Wasama on drums and Tapio Tuominen on tenor – working with bassist Olli Pekka Wasama on bass, on these fantastically spiritual tunes! Wasama's tone is great – almost more American loft jazz than European avant, a vibe that's especially carried on when Wasama adds in some inventive percussion work on the two long tracks – "Balladi 1" and "El Kabong". Next is a nicely moody duo – Pentti Hietanen on piano and Teppo Hauta-Aho on bass – working without any other instrumentation at all on these amazing tunes that are filled with light and imagination! The music's never sleepy or too tone-heavy – ala ECM – and instead, the pair have a lively energy that almost makes us feel like we're hearing a quartet or larger group. Titles include "Shades On The Snow", "April Moon", and "Pilvi". Last up is the Wasama Quartet – a group led by bassist Olli-Pekka Wasama and drummer Jukka Wasama, and who play with a nicely exotic sound! The instrumentation features 12 string acoustic guitar from Ilkka Niemelainen, who gives the music a very unusual quality at times – plus both violin and piano from Mikko Ville Luojan Mikkola – a musician whose sense of sound really fits the music. Titles include "Hickory", "Celene", and a nice take on Jim Pepper's "Witchi Tai To". CD

✨✧ John Spider MartinAbsolutely John Spider Martin ... LP
Improv, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A real sleeper – and a hip little set that's well worth the listen! Spider's a pretty soulful tenor player in his own right, but one of the things that makes the record really great is work by a set of guest players that include Joe Locke on vibes, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Pepper Adams on Baritone, and Billy Skinner on trumpet. The album shifts between smoother, soulfully oriented jazz and a few more traditionally hardbop numbers – swinging along a pace that's rough, but which marks them with a sense of honesty that's really appreciated, given the time and setting. The album includes one standout jazzy groover – the amazing "A Lil Different", a great track that starts off straight, then leaps into a blend of funky bass, keyboards, and vibes that really really grooves! Other tracks include the Jimmy Owens funk number "Uh Ah", plus "That's Nice", "Nica's Dream", and "Never Can Say Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album

Pepper Adams with Ted CursonCalifornia Cookin ... CD
Interplay, 1983. Used ... $32.99
An exceptional set from baritonist Pepper Adams – one of those great moments that artists hit only at a few spots in their career, especially during later years like this! The album's a live date that cooks with any of Pepper's classics from years back – but it's also got a soulful complexity that takes it to rich new territory too – a quality that's no doubt due to the presence of trumpeter Ted Curson in the quintet, playing with bold, righteous notes that really transform the record! It's rare to hear Adams' horn in such a setting, and he really responds to Curson's presence – reaching out with long-blown and beautifully crafted solos that get a lot of energy from the rhythm trio of Victor Feldman on piano, Bob Magnusson on bass, and Carl Burnett on drums. Titles include "Waltz For Celeste", "Summertime", "Last Resort", "Now In Our Lives", and "Oleo". CD

✨✧ VariousSoul In Harmony – Vocal Groups 1965 to 1977 – Superb Vocal Harmony From The Classic Soul Era ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of harmony soul gems – and a package that's overflowing with great numbers from a time when small group soul really sparkled in the funky 45 underground! Most of the cuts here have never appeared on CD before, and a handful are previously unreleased – and together, the set really showcases the sublime style of singing that emerged in the second half of the 60s – a new approach to harmonizing that was different from jazz, gospel, or doo wop groups in previous years – with tremendous interplay between the lead and backup parts of the group, in charts that were continually inventive and richly expressive at a level that still sounds completely great all these many years later! If you only know Motown male groups, or bigger names like The Impressions or Stylistics, you'll find plenty here to discover – a really rich tapestry of tunes that includes "Strange Voice" by The Imaginations, "Baby" by The Joneses, "Boom A Rang" by Dynamic Soul Machine, "By Your Side" by Moon & Mars, "Can't Get You Off My Mind" by Brothers Of Soul, "Waiting For Your Love" by The Love Experience, "Linda" by Salt & Pepper, "Need Someone To Love" by The Symphonies, "Take Your Time" by The Festivals, "That Day When She Needed Me" by The Performers, "We Can Make It Baby" by The Reputations, "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" by The Four Sonics, and "I'll Be Waiting" by The Lovettes.

Herb Alpert & OthersWhipped Cream & Other Delights – Re-Whipped ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s/2006. Used ... $1.99
A surprisingly great take on the Tijuana Brass sound of the 60s – one that offers up new remixes of classics, but which is nicely respectful of the original Herb Albert groove! Unlike other remix projects of this type, which sometimes clutter up the tracks with too many extra bits – or abstract the originals past the point of recognition – this one maintains the sense of space, time, and rhythm that Herb first brought to his work in the 60s, while also updating the tunes with a 21st Century aesthetic. Remixers include Medeski Martin & Wood, Mocean Worker, Thievery Corporation, John King (Dust Brothers), and Anthony Marinelli – and titles include "Whipped Cream", "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Peanuts", "Love Potion #9", and "Butterball".

The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning through the air! Barry then takes over with some wonderful instrumentals – a blend of crime jazz, mood pieces, chase themes, and more – all peppered with that dark dark Bond theme that we love so much! Titles include "Into Miami", "Teasing The Korean", "Alpine Drive", "Bond Back In Action", "Gassing The Gangsters", and "Death Of Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

Scott BradfordRock Slides ... LP
ABC/Probe, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
A lost album of funky jazz that features work by the great Nathan Davis! The combo's a hip rock-influenced one – mixing together acoustic funky jazz with a slight touch of electric bass, in a manner that's in keeping with some of the hipper jazz rock groups that were coming out of England and Germany at the end of the 60s. Scott Bradford's the leader of the group – and he plays piano, Hohner electric, and organ – and other players include Stu Martin on drums, Gunther Lenz on bass, Nathan Davis on tenor sax and flute, and Philip Catherine on occasional guest guitar solos. The tracks follow nicely in the messed-up vibe of some of the MPS groups of the time – with lots of chunky hard-hitting grooves, peppered with real jazz soloing, especially from Davis, who gets in some of the weirdest reed work of his career on the album! Titles include two Davis originals – "Mid Evil Dance", and "Kansas City Mascher" – plus the cuts "Samsara", "Essential Horror", and "Issa". LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdRoyal Flush (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the seminal sides cut by Donald Byrd in his partnership with Pepper Adams – a high-up, low-down set that's a smoker all the way through! Byrd's brightness on trumpet is nicely matched by Adams' fluid work on baritone sax – and the pair are wonderfully supported by a rhythm trio that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all players who can hit a sock-hard groove one minute, then let loose with a lyrical flourish the next. The approach of the record is tightly soulful, with loads of great changes – and some surprising dark edges that really add in a whole new dimension to the Donald Byrd sound of the time. Titles include "Shangri-La", "Jorgies", "Hush", "6 M's", and the moody "Requiem"! LP, Vinyl record album

Killer set of hardbop tracks recorded during the mid 50s for the Jazz West, Transition, and Blue Note labels – and seminal early work by Coltrane, playing under the leadership of his frequent bass partner Paul Chambers. One album was issued under the name of the Paul Chambers Quartet, another was issued as Whims Of Chambers, and the last batch of tracks was unissued until the time of this release. The whole thing's pretty darn great, and Trane plays with a nice rootsy relaxed style that you don't get from his Prestige recordings, made slightly after these. Titles include "Trane's Strain", "Omicron", "Nita", "Eastbound", and "Nixon, Dixon, & Yates Blues", a fantastic improvisation between Trane, Chambers, Pepper Adams, and Curtis Fuller!

Ted CursonTed Curson In Paris – Live At The Sunside ... CD
Blue Marge (France), 2006. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 24.99
Great live material from Ted Curson – a Parisian performance that features Ted with a range of different artists, really opening up in ways that show the full range of his tremendous talents! Paris always seems to bring out the best in Curson (we consider ourselves fortunate to have caught him there live years back, sharing a stage with Rufus Harley) – and this set shows Ted really taking full advantage of the opportunities the scene offers him. Some cuts are straight small combo jazz – with Ted's trumpet burning it up over backing from the trio of pianist Alain Jean-Marie. Other numbers add in a bit of backup vocals, behind Curson's own bluesy lead. And still others feature added alto, flute, and percussion – making for a further level of expression that we don't usually hear on an album from Ted. Curson's vocal performances are peppered throughout the double-length set – and almost seem to be more crowd pleasing moments, where he might be expected to warble a standard for the overseas audience – but they do have a sort of charm, given the raspy style of singing – and one number, a hip take on "Summertime", is actually a funky groover that really makes happy that Ted decided to sing along (he gets some help on that number from soulful Sylvia Howard, too!) Titles include "Reava's Waltz", "Tears For Dolphy", "Caravan", "Dig", "Round Midnight", "Milestones", "Confirmation", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Pilma Boogie". CD

Lou DonaldsonLush Life (Applause version) ... LP
Blue Note/Applause, 1967. Near Mint- ... $3.99
An unusual session from the heart of Lou Donaldson's return to Blue Note in the late 60s – a mellower date that stands in strong contrast to his funkier albums of the time! As you might guess from the title, there's a lusher feel going on here – one that has Lou's alto sax augmented by larger backings from Duke Pearson – who manages to score things perfectly with a balance of soul and sophistication. The album's hardly a "Donaldson with strings" date – and instead is done in the more mature mode that Duke was using in some of his own sides from the time, and on work with players like Donald Byrd or Stanley Turrentine. Other players here include Wayne Shorter on tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone, Jerry Dodgion on alto and flute, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Garnett Brown on trombone – plus core rhythms from the trio of McCoy Tyner on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Al Harewood on drums. Titles include "Sweet Slumber", "The Good Life", "Sweet & Lovely", "Stardust", and "You've Changed" – and the album was recorded in the 60s, it was only first issued in Japan in 1980 – and even then only later in the US!

FelaEverything Scatter (180 gram orange vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... On August 11, 2017
A great little record – with two brilliant side-long tracks! "Everything Scatter" is a stone 70s classic from Fela – and a cut that's maybe the blueprint for so much Afro Funk to follow – beautifully layered, with so many different elements coming into play at once, yet never getting in the way of each other at all – and somehow creating a groove that's so much more than just the sum of its parts in the process! The percolating groove is amazing – tighter than any imitators could ever hope to match – and peppered with brilliant solos on tenor, trumpet, and keyboards! Speaking of keyboards, they provide an excellent start to the flipside – "Who No Know Go Know" – a tune with a contemplative message in the lyrics, but one that also starts out with a long run of instrumental interplay first!

Redd Foxx unfiltered, uncensored and in his live prime! You know, we can never get enough of just about any kind of party record, and the early 70s blue records from Redd Foxx have always been some of our favorites. While he was pretty darn funny doing "straight" comedy on network TV as Fred Sanford, even the most outlandish skits on the show never measured up against this raw material. Redd keeps it raw and dirty for the very live crowd with bits like "Black Brains", "Makin' Sandwiches", "Sniffing Pepper", "Raffle Ticket", "Rat Trap", "Door Knob", "Get Tight", "Say Hamburger" and "Kiss Urass Goodbye".

Motohiko HinoToko Flash ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $28.99
Really unique work from a trio led by drummer Motohiko Hino, and which features Masahiko Satoh on piano and Nobuyoshi Ino on bass – all players who aren't content to just rest in the usual piano trio modes of the time, and who instead really break open the format with their creative work on the album! Satoh has a way of playing lyrically at the start, then really opening up – and Ino's bass rolls and dips with its own sense of melody that's quite beautiful – as Hino works far far away from straight rhythm, and often peppers the songs with personal exclamations of his own. Yet none of the numbers are ever too far out, either – just loosely structured, but respectful of the melodies, while never enslaved to them. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "Norwegian Wood", "Flash", "Overhang Blues", and "Once Upon A Summertime". CD
