Jimmy SmithRoot Down ... CD
Verve, 1972. Used ... $5.99
Once an overlooked late Verve album, now a solid classic – and easily one of the funkiest albums ever from organist Jimmy Smith! The groove here is far different than the more familiar Jimmy Smith Verve sessions of the 60s – and the tracks open up in a really extended mode – vamping and jamming with a definite influence from funk, as Jimmy and the combo explore some of the hippest corners of their sound! Players include Paul Humphrey on drums, Wilton Felder on bass, and Arthur Adams on guitar – plus a bit of harmonica from Steve Williams – and there's almost lessons learned here from some of the Latin funk going on in the LA scene of the time. The set was recorded live, and features the great title cut – "Root Down" – a long drawn out groover with a slow funk feel that was made famous by a Beastie Boys sample years back – and other great cuts include "Slow Down Sagg", "Sagg Shootin His Arrow", and "Let's Stay Together". The CD features a nice amount of bonus material – including full unedited performances of "Sagg Shootin' His Arrow", "Slow Down Sagg", and "Root Down", plus the cuts "For Everyone Under The Sun" and "Let's Stay Together".

Steve ReidRhythmatism ... CD
Mustevic/Soul Jazz (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A fantastic mid 70s set led by drummer Steve Reid – fronting a group of players who groove tightly, but with a really sinister sound! Reid is an absolute steamroller on this set – laying down a fast-paced, super tight funky backdrop for the rest of the players to groove fluidly over the top. Three of the five tracks run well north of the 10 minute mark – and those pieces are strong as can be, providing just enough room for the players to lay out a groove that lies beautifully between the mid 60s avant garde of Ornette Coleman and the spiritual soul jazz of the mid 70s. The core group includes pianist Les Walker (who penned most of the material here), plus David Wertman on a wonderfully rubbery bass, Michael Keith on trombone and Arthur Blythe on alto sax – with guests Chris Capers (trumpet), Melvin Smith (guitar) and Charles Tyler (baritone sax) on "Center Of The Earth". Great stuff, with a really dark edge! Other tracks include "Kai", "Rocks (For Cannonball)", "C You Around", and "One Minute Please". CD

✨✧ Ted DanielIn The Beginning ... CD
Altura, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic 70s material from trumpeter Ted Daniel – a hell of an artist in his own right, and one whose participation in the New York scene is finally given some documentation with releases like this! The set has Daniel working with some of his most important contemporaries, in two different groups – one a lineup that's heavy on saxophone work – from players who include David Murray, Charles Tyler, Arthur Blythe, Hassan Dawkins, Oliver Lake, and Kappu Umezu; the other a group with a slightly different lineup, which still includes Tyler and Dawkins, but also adds in trumpet from Ahmed Abdullah, trombone from Cahrles Stephens, and drums from Steve Reid! Both groups feature guitar from Melvin Smith and percussion from Tatsuya Nakamura – and compositions are by Lake, Blythe, Tyler, and Daniel – but all given that sense of bold, majestic energy that we usually find in Ted's performances of the time. Titles include "Hassan", "Illusions", "Folley", and "Greeting". CD

Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A really cool little collection – one that features early work by a host of famous rockers and 60s pop acts – many of whom are recording here before using their better-known later names! The music's pulled from both sides of the Atlantic, and often has a nicely rough-edged feel – bits of garage rock, mod soul,a nd more – performed by artists who include Peter Frampton, Mike Nesmith, The Byrds, Cher, David Bowie, Lou Reed, Ry Cooder, Neil Young, Lee Hazlewood, Narry Nilsson, Love, and others! As always with Ace, the notes are great – and really help illuminate these rare gems – and titles include "It's My Time" by The Mynah Birds, "Your Love" by Lewis Reed, "Stop Calling Me Baby" by Danny Lee, "Dream Baby" by Cherilyn, "In The Midnight Hour" by The Pigeons, "I Can Fly" by The Herd, "You Made Me Fall" by Marty Balin, "Prison Break" by The Paramours, "Rumble-Still-Skins" by Arthur Lee & The LAGs, "Groovy Little Suzie" by Bo-Pete, "Can't Let Her See Me Cry" by Mark Robinson, "Hole In My Pocket" by The Rockets, "Candy Man" by The Rising Sons, and "Liza Jane" by Davie Jones with The King Bees.
