Down To The BoneSpread The Word (Album III) ... CD
Internal Bass/Atlantic, 2001. Used ... $2.99
The third album from Down To The Bone – the smooth UK jazzy outfit that first struck big on the US steppers scene in the mid 90s. This 3rd album's possibly their strongest to date – filled with smooth jazz soloing over tightly compressed rhythms, perfect for the modern stepping groove that seems to be the band's strongest asset. Fans of rawer jazz funk may be a bit disappointed with the record, but if you dig your grooves a bit smoothed out, the set's sure to please! Titles include "The Backburner", "Righteous Reeds", "Sound As A Pound", "Bridgeport Boogie", "The Lowdown", and "Black Choice". CD

DriftersOur Biggest Hits ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
Not to be confused with the group's Greatest Hits album on Atlantic, which has a similar cover, this one's a "Biggest Hits" package – but oddly one that also features some nice obscure numbers too! Most of the work here is from the later incarnation of the group, and the rhythmic styles are a wonderful mix with their maturing harmonies. Titles include "One Way Love", "On Broadway", "Drio Drop", "Vaya Con Dios", "Up On The Roof", "Rat Race", "Let The Music Play", "I'll Take You Home", "If You Don't Come Back", and "Didn't It". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue and green label pressing – nice and clean overall. Cover has some light wear.)

DriftersRockin & Driftin – The Drifters Box (3CD box set) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1950s/1960s. Used 3CD ... $29.99
Excellent 3 CD set that brings together 79 of the best cuts by The Drifters, and packages them all in a very sharp looking booklet, with 46 extra pages of photos, notes, and cover reproductions. The whole set is easily the best "best of" you'll ever find on the group, and it includes loads of other great stuff besides the obvious hits, plus solo stuff by Clyde McPhatter and Ben E King. The group had such a wonderful history past their big hits that it's great to hear the full range of work by them – and the set's got many great titles that you might not already know, including "Lonely Winds", "I've Got Sand In My Shoes", "Drip Drop", "Baltimore", "Drifting Away From Y ou", "Up In The Streets Of Harlem", "Come oN Over To My Place", "There Goes My First Love", "One Way Love", "Rat Race", "Only In America", "Down On the Beach Tonight", "Three Thirty Three", "Don't Dog Me", "At The Club", "Let The Music Play", "Mexican Divorce", "I Count The Tears", "I'll Take You Home", and lots lots more!

DriftersSave The Last Dance For Me ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good- ... $14.99
Sublime mid-period work from The Drifters – a record cut when the group was working with the team of Lieber & Stoller, who revamped their sound into a sweetly soulful groove that really set the scene for the New York uptown sound of the 60s! The tracks here often have a lilting little rhythm at the bottom – just enough to get thing stepping along in a mode that's sweeter, and arguably more sophisticated than the group's earlier R&B work. And the overall sound is so great, we hardly miss Clyde McPhatter or Ben E King – because the rest of the group has a nicely unified sound. Tracks include "Nobody But Me", "Room Full Of Tears", "No Sweet Lovin", "Jackpot", "Sweets For My Sweet", and more! Also includes the great early Bacharach track "Mexican Divorce"!

Champion Jack DupreeBlues From The Gutter ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $84.99
Blues from the gutter, with a nice current of jazz, too – thanks to participation from a hip group who really make this album from Champion Jack something special! Dupree himself sings and plays piano – often with plenty of rootsy currents – but the combo also features excellent alto from Pete Brown, who adds in plenty of soul – as well as Ennis Lowery on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Willie Jones on drums. All tracks are credited to Jack, but there's more than a few here that are traditional, and just given new arrangements by Dupree – and titles include "Strollin", "Stack-O-Lee", "Frankie & Johnny", "Bad Blood", "Junker's Blues", "Evil Woman", and "Can't Kick The Habit".

Gil EvansSvengali ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A great example of the way that Gil Evans really opened up his groove in the 70s – moving here way way past the cool jazz and third stream of earlier years – into a soulful style that's far groovier than might be expected! Part of the strength of the set is because of the players – as Gil's working with a group of younger soul jazz and spiritual soloists that include Ted Dunbar, Billy Harper, and Hannibal Marvin Peterson – as well as the older soul modernist Richard Williams. But there's also some other specifically Evans-like touches to the record that stand out – like Gil's stark notes on acoustic piano and his lighter work on the electric keys – plus a bit of inventive synthesizer from David Horowitz, who makes a few tracks really crackle with energy. Tracks include "Zee Zee", "Blues In Orbit", "Cry Of Hunger", and "Thoroughbred" – the latter two of which are lovely compositions by Billy Harper! CD

Art FarmerInteraction (with bonus track) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
A magnificent set from the team of Art Farmer and Jim Hall – one of those rare pairings in jazz that somehow comes off sounding even way better than the sum of its parts – and that's saying a lot, given that the parts here are already pretty darn great! Farmer's flugelhorn and Hall's guitar create these wonderful shapes in sound – softly coming together with a vibe that's very modern, yet also soulful – gently swinging while still experimenting – with a combination that's completely wonderful! Think of Bob Brookmeyer and Clark Terry, or Bill Evans and Jim Hall – and you'll be somewhere in the territory of these magically unique sounds – augmented with some gentle rhythm work by Steve Swallow on bass and Walter Perkins on drums. Titles include "By Myself", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Sometime Ago", and "My Kinda Love". CD features a bonus track too! CD

Art FarmerLive At The Half Note (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Beautiful work from the legendary Art Farmer – sounds from a time when the trumpeter was really coming into his own, and finding a way to carve out a special space for himself in modern jazz! The sounds here are fresh, but never overstated – blown with that compact mode that makes Farmer's phrasing so distinct, and set up here with a perfect quartet that features Jim Hall on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums. All players are masters of understatement – and the band is sort of a perfect extension of some of Jimmy Guiffre's earlier work on Atlantic with Hall – as they've perfected a simple style that leaves the instrumental solos floating in air, interacting with each other in subtle complex ways that never cease to amaze. Tracks are longer than on some of the studio albums by the group – and titles include "Swing Spring", "I Want To Be Happy", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album

Art FarmerSing Me Softly Of The Blues (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1965. Used ... $22.99
A sublime little set – one of Art Farmer's seminal quartet recordings from the mid 60s, and a blend of modern lyricism with an ease and economy that's hardly ever been matched again! There's a careful, measured style here that's really tremendous – one that's never too sleepy or lazy with its approach, and which almost seems to carry on the modes of expression first begun by Jimmy Giuffre in the 50s – although in completely different ways! The group features Pete LaRoca on drums, Steve Kuhn on piano, and Steve Swallow on bass – but it's Art's effortless trumpet solos that really make the album sparkle, as they drift over the top of the album's hip original tunes, written by Carla Bley and LaRoca. Titles include "Ad Infinitum", "Petite Bell", "Tears", and "One For Majid". CD

Fat JoeAll Or Nothing ... LP
Atlantic, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP ... $4.99
Thank God for Fat Joe, who keeps repping the birthplace of hip hop in an era when it seems like the freshness is mostly coming from elsewhere. The DITC crew member spits east coast street rhymes over beats definietly aimed to put him on the airwaves like "Lean Back" did, and if we have to listen to anyone over the hot ish, it might as well be Fat Joe. Beats by Streetrunner, the Runners, Just Blaze, Cool & Dre, Swizz Beats, Sott Storch and Timbaland.15 tracks in all, icluding "Does Anybody Know", "Safe 2 Say (The Incredible)", "My Fofo", "Rock Ya Body", "Get It Poppin'", "Everybody Get Up", "So Hot" and "Lean Back Remix".

✨✧ Faze-OBreakin' The Funk ... LP
Atlantic/SHE, 1979. Very Good ... $7.99
Wicked funk from Faze-O – a group who seem even tighter than before on this smoking album – yet still hold onto all the laidback modes that made them so great in the first place! There's a lean quality here that really prefaces the direction so many funk acts would take a few years later – a way of compressing everything down on the rhythm, to get past some of the excesses of too-large funk groups, or some of the overblown qualities of the disco generation! Faze-O were definitely out front with this approach, and continue to craft it strongly here – and the album's got a few great mellow tracks too – a great illustration of the claim made in the liner notes – that "Faze-O music is carefully built in panels of melodic phases, to sensuously put you in a funky but heavenly mood of time and rhythm." Titles include "See You Through The Night", "I'm Thankful", "I Still Love You", "Let's Rock", and "Ya Ba Da Ba Duzie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roberta FlackFirst Take ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ ... $7.99
What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible! The record is Roberta's first, and it features her in a mellow trio format, augmented by some occasional larger arrangements by William Fischer. At most points, though, the sound is incredibly spare – with vocals that are much more soulful than any of Roberta's other records, and a sound that hints at Nina Simone, but which has it's own jazzy groove and deep sense of feeling. Includes the classic funky version of "Compared To What", plus "Angelitos Negros", "Our Ages Our Our Hearts", and "Tryin Times". LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta FlackKilling Me Softly ... CD
Atlantic, 1973. Used ... $4.99
Roberta Flack at her most masterful – balancing righteous soul at it's most spiritually resonant and more mainstream accessible melodies – from her classic years at Atlantic when she was forging a whole new sound that was a unique blend of soul, jazz, and spiritualism. Each of Roberta's preceding albums on Atlantic were increasingly incredible – and this one caps of a pretty incredible late 60s to early 70s run of top quality work. Includes the ever-fresh title cut, remade later by The Fugees in a version that cemented it's status with the next generation – plus a great version Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", "River", "No Tears (In The End)", "I'm The Girl", "When You Smile" and "Conversation Love".

Roberta FlackOasis ... CD
Atlantic, 1988. Used ... $4.99
Roberta Flack sounding freshly inspired in the late 80s – her first new album in years – and it's a really strong one! The first thing that jumps out at us is how wonderful her voice continues to be –she's recognizable from the first syllable, and it's right it home with a contemporary sound – though classical soul-inclined – thanks to smart production and arrangements by Marcus Miller, Jerry Hey and Michael Omartian. There's a little bit of a tropical vibe in couple places – hence the title – especially the opening and closing tunes "Oasis" and "(His Name) Brazil" – and other cuts include the nice and hooky Ashford & Simpson tune "Uh-Uh-Ooh Look Out (Here It Comes)", plus "All Caught Up In Love", "Shock To My System", "You Who Brought Me Love", "And So It Goes", "Something Magic".
