Will DowningWill Downing ... LP
4th & Broadway/Island (UK), 1988. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The debut of greatness from Will Downing – an album that really sparkled in the late 80s musical galaxy, and which strongly updated an older style of richer soul from the 70s! Will's working here with equal parts influence from jazz and soul – inflected by work from talents that include Brian Jackson, Arthur Baker, Doug Wimbush, and Keith LeBlanc – held together mightily by the legendary Downing vocals! In world where so much mainstream soul seemed adrift, Will brought back the power of older male vocalists with a classic presence – one that didn't succumb to the easy cliches of the mid 80s mainstream, and which really helped raise the bar for generations to come. Titles include a great remake of Denice Williams' "Free", a surprising take on John Coltrane's "Love Supreme", and the tracks "Do You Remember Love", "Do You", "In My Dreams", "So You Wanna Be My Lover", "Security", and "Dancing In The Moonlight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (5:36, 4:00, part 2) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Very Good ... $14.99
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 3 different edits. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Importe sleeve with marker. Label has some pen.)

✨✧ MC Connection/C BankBurnin' For Another Shot/One More Shot (inst) ... 12-inch
Next Plateau, 1983. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An early 80s electro track, from one of the architects of the sound, John Robie, who had a hand in a number of the early Afrika Bambataa singles as well Arthur Baker's breakdance classics. An uptempo track with loads of nice synthesizers and electronic drums. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Diana RossSwept Away ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1984. Used ... $9.99
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel Richie, and Bernard Edwards – and a musical lineup that features half those artistes, plus work from Jeff Beck, Nile Rodgers, and the Brecker Brothers too! Diana's vocals aren't as over the top as during the disco years – and find a nice place to percolate within the warmer 80s grooves – mostly rhythms that have a nice sort of crossover potential, but not in a way that's as clunky or commercial as some of her contemporaries. Titles include "Missing You", "It's Your Move", "Swept Away", "Telephone", "All Of You", "Touch By Touch", "Nobody Makes Me Crazy", and "Rescue Me". CD

✨✧ John RoccaI Want It To Be Real (vocal, inst)/Englishman In New York ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic electro from the team of John Rocca and Arthur Baker, one that really takes us back. A bit of on the pop side of things, but still some great early linn drum grooves. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has some marker.)

✨✧ Jason MoranModernistic ... CD
Blue Note, 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
A solo set by pianist Jason Moran – but one that's got the intensity of a full group session! We honestly didn't know how we'd respond to this one, but we find the album to be really compelling – a great blend of tunes from sources that include James P Johnson, Arthur Baker, and Muhal Richard Abrams, next to some sparkling originals by Moran. Titles include "Planet Rock", "You've Got To Be Modernistic", "Passion", "Gansterism On A Lunchtable", "Time Into Space Into Time", and "Gentle Shifts South". CD
(Out of print, promotional stamp on CD.)
