Wilson PickettExciting Wilson Pickett ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Always exciting work from the Wicked Pickett – a set that's filled with sharp-edged soul tracks throughout – and which perfectly shows why Wilson was a key link between funk and soul back in the 60s! The album was recorded at the two great hubs of southern soul production in the 60s – Memphis and Muscle Shoals – and the tracks includes some key Pickett reworkings of other hits into his own classics, plus a few more penned for the album that are equally as great! Titles include "In The Midnight Hour", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Something You Got", "Mercy Mercy", "Danger Zone", "It's All Over", "99 & 1/2 Won't Do", and "634-5789". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wilson PickettMidnight Mover ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... $14.99
Stone soul from Wilson Pickett – the kind of all-great Atlantic album that had Wilson standing above most of the filler-heavy soul acts of the time! The album's overflowing with great original tunes written by Pickett and a young Bobby Womack – wonderful work that revels in the raspy soul style of both writers, and which set a new standard for southern-flavored soul at the time – going way beyond simple covers, and offering a fresh voice that really helped deepen Wilson's career. Pickett even had a hand in the studio, producing 2 of the album's tracks – the rest were done by Tom Dowd – tracks include the title classic "I'm A Midnight Mover" – a 60s party tune if there ever was one – plus "Down By The Sea", "Trust Me", "Let's Get An Understanding", "Remember, I Been Good To You", "I'm Gonna Cry", "I Found A True Love", and "It's A Groove".

Wilson PickettSound Of Wilson Pickett ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
The sound of Wilson Pickett is the sound of soul – bursting out here proudly in a classic session that features production from Rick Hall and the Fame Studios team! The record's got a gritty, nitty kind of feel that easily makes it one of Wilson's best – and with backing that includes Chips Moman on guitar, Spooner Oldham on piano and organ, and Roger Hawkins on drums, Pickett could almost sit the record out. But instead of taking it the easy way, he even outdoes the combo with a really hard-wailing performance of his own! Titles include the great 2 part take on "I Found A Love (parts 1 & 2)", plus "Mojo Mama", "I Found The One", "I'm Sorry About That", "Love Is A Beautiful Thing", "Soul Dance Number 3", "Funky Broadway", and "I'm Sorry About That".

Jean Luc PontyFables ... LP
Atlantic, 1985. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Almost a back-to-basics album for jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty – one that has him kicking things up with a bit more heavy fusion than on some of his other 80s records – almost jamming at times, and at least returning to some of the energy he had back in the 70s! Most of the record features a core group with Scott Henderson on guitar, Baron Browne on bass, and Rayford Griffin on drums – and Ponty's playing a few different electric violins, plus a bit of keyboards – on tracks that include "Radioactive Legacy", "Perpetual Rondo", "Cat's Tales", "In The Kingdom Of Peace", "Infinite Pursuit", and "Elephants In Love".

Don PullenMontreux Concert ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of Don Pullen's best-known albums, and for good reason too – a well-recorded document of a Montreux performance that helped put Don's piano talents in the spotlight for the rest of the 70s! The record's got a sense of freedom that's quite unusual for Atlantic Records at the time – as each side features one long track, played at a level that's very spontaneous, and often quite outside – at least at some points. Side one features an extended version of Muhal Richard Abrams' "Richard's Tune", done with a trio that features electric bass by Jeff Berlin and drums by Steve Jordan – and side two features the even more beautiful Pullen original, "Dialogue Between Malcolm & Betty" – which adds in some great Latin percussion to the trio!

RascalsFreedom Suite ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A double-length set from The Rascals – possibly their most stretched-out exploration of ideas, at least during their initial run for Atlantic Records! The 2LP set features a fair bit of shorter, catchier tunes on the first record – many with some righteous soul overtones – but on the second record, the group really open up – hitting some longer jamming tunes on side three, and moving into a 15 minute instrumental on side four! Vocals are great from all three singers – Gene Cornish, Eddie Brigati, and Felix Cavaliere – and the rhythms are rock-solid too, often augmented with a bit of Atlantic-styled backings by Arif Mardin, to further enforce the soulfulness of the set. Titles include the hit "People Got To Be Free", plus "American The Beautiful", "Any Dance'll Do", "A Ray Of Hope", "Look Around", "Boom", "Heaven", "Cute", "Baby I'm Blue", and "Adrian's Birthday". LP, Vinyl record album

RascalsSearch & Nearness ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
The Rascals' last album for Atlantic Records – and a set that has the combo relying more than ever on the talents of organist Felix Cavaliere! There's a great New York blend of rock and soul going on in the set – a confident, soaring sort of approach to the tunes that's past caring what any simple genre conventions might mean, or which tracks might end up on radio – even though most of the tunes here are still plenty darn catchy. The piano and organ lines on the album snap along nicely, as do some of the drums (especially on the break cut "You Don't Know") – and although group member Eddie Brigati had left by the time the album was released, he still sings lead on a few tracks. Titles include the jazzy "Nama", which is a wonderful surprise – plus "You Don't Know", "Right On", "Ready For Love", "Fortunes", "Glory Glory", and "The Letter". LP, Vinyl record album

Otis Redding & Carla ThomasKing & Queen ... CD
Stax/Atlantic, 1967. Used ... $6.99
A legendary collaboration between Otis Redding and Carla Thomas – the former of whom was definitely the king of the Memphis soul scene at the time of the record's release, and the latter of whom was certainly going for the title of queen with her power on the record! Carla here is a lot more raw soul than on some of her other records of the 60s – really hitting the spirit of both Redding's own music, and the playful vibe of the Stax approach – trading lines with Otis in a really badass way, especially on the album's classic funk track "Tramp" – which was sampled often in the early hip hop years! Otis is great too – maybe less iconic, but in a great way – and his match with Carla may well blow away some of the Motown male/female records from the time. In addition to "Tramp", other titles include "Bring It On Home To Me", "Ooh Carla Ooh Otis", "Lovey Dovey", and "New Year's Resolution". CD

Max RoachFeaturing The Legendary Hasaan ... CD
Atlantic, 1965. Used ... $8.99
A very unusual album from Max Roach – and one that continues his great 50s trend of seeking out some of the freshest players in jazz! The set's a rare trio outing for Max – and it features some incredible piano work by a musician named Hasaan – a player we only know from this set, but who's a cooking modernist with a vibe that ranks him right up there with postwar greats like Thelonious Monk, Randy Weston, and Herbie Nichols! With references like those, you can bet there's plenty of sharp edges in the piano – but the tunes also have a subtle, soulful feel too – a sense of humanity that's really wonderful. The album includes the tracks "Off My Back Jack", "Almost Like Me", "To Inscribe", "Pay Not Play Not", and "Din-Ka Stret", all written by Hasaan. CD

Shorty RogersMartians Come Back! ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of Shorty Rogers' greatest records – and a very nice set of tight west coast arrangements that really shows off the Rogers sense of sparkle and swing – a vibe that definitely comes through in the famous cover image too! Shorty wrote nearly all of the tracks, and the writing's a great example of the good side of the west coast style – when the tightness of arranging is used to bring out the best elements in the players, and bend them around in some nice twists and turns, with good solos, and lots of nice little surprising bits. And in this case, the players are all great – with Jimmy Giuffre and Bud Shank on reeds, Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpets, and Lou Levy on piano. Titles include "Lotus Bud", "Martians Come Back", "Chant Of The Cosmos", and "Astral Alley". LP, Vinyl record album

Despite the length of the tunes, the overall feel is similar to Rogers' excellent Wherever The Five Winds Blow album for RCA – and makes the record a great set, done without any gimmicks or tricks – and enough of the modern touch still left from Rogers' first few years on record. Titles include "Martians Go Home", "Trickleydidlier", "Not Really The Blues", and "Michele's Meditation". LP, Vinyl record album

A gem of a record from Shorty Rogers – a set recorded in the mid 50s for Atlantic, but never issued at the time – making it not only a hell of an album, but a great discovery too! Shorty's in wonderful form here – working with some of the best modes learned on his RCA sides, served up with the tighter focus that we love in his other Atlantic recordings of the 50s – and graced with a great group of players who include Herb Geller on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on clarinet and tenor, Bud Shank on alto and baritone, Bill Holman on tenor, Lou Levy on piano, Ralph Pena on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. With a lineup like that, you can bet things are on the money throughout – especially since all tunes are originals by Shorty, with great arrangements that really let all the solo voices come through strongly! Titles include "I Dig Ed", "Adam In New York", "Clickin With Clax", "Put The Goodies On", and "Pete's Meat". LP, Vinyl record album

A funky bit of blues from Otis Rush – the guitarist's debut album, and a surprisingly great batch of tracks recorded at Fame Studios! Production is by Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites, who are clearly going for more of a crossover sound than Rick Hall might have given the set – but that approach is a strong one, as it really brings a hard focus on Rush's guitar, and sets his slyly sliding vocals a bit more back in the mix. Sweet electric Chicago blues before it got over-Alligatorized – with tracks that include "Feel So Bad", "Baby I Love You So", "Me", "Working Man", "You're Killing My Love", and "Can't Wait No Longer" – the last 4 of which were written by Bloomfield and Gravenites.

Mongo SantamariaFeelin' Alright ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of Mongo's biggest records of the early 70s – and an important early side for Atlantic Records! Moving to Atlantic from Columbia, Mongo hipped things up even more – picking up on important trends in soul, rock, and the Latin underground of the time. Atlantic gave Mongo the freedom to open things up a bit more – and fill his grooves with a bit more funk, jazz, and Chicano soul than heard on earlier albums. The result is a wonderful blend of styles that crackles with electricity from track to track. Arrangements are by Mongo's longtime partner, Marty Sheller – and titles include "Hip Hug Her", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Hold On, I'm Coming", "On Broadway", and "In A Gadda Da Vida", which is a real trip!

The group's all-Atlantic all the way through – with players that include King Curtis, Hank Crawford, and David Newman on "soul" saxophones – backing Shirley up on a batch of tunes are mostly takes on 60s pop and soul hits – given a larger band groove, and a sweet Atlantic swing! The album's got a great funky version of "It's Your Thing", plus "I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel To Be Free", "Get Back", and "Natural Woman". CD

A rare return to recording for alto player Buster Smith – captured here in a setting that's even sharper than before! Smith has roots that go back to the 30s bands of Bennie Moten and Andy Kirk – but he also was an early boss of Charlie Parker, who claimed to be strongly influenced by his alto – and you can definitely hear Buster take off in a few Bird-like flights during the set! The groove is mostly older swing-based jazz, yet there's a sharper edge too – and certainly an understanding of bop that informs the solos. Buster's tone is incredible throughout – deeply personal, and very soulful – and titles include "Late Late", "Organ Grinder's Swing", "King Alcohol", and "Kansas City Blues". CD

SpinnersCan't Shake This Feeling ... LP
Atlantic, 1981. Near Mint- ... $0.99
The Spinners really sparkle here – thanks to some tight 80s groove production from the team of James Mtume and Reggie Lucas – a pair who really help the group find some great new territory on the record! All the soaring soul of the group's 70s Philly work is still in place – but the overall sound is a bit more adult at points – kind of hitting that 80s modern soul mode that some of the other east coast artists were going for as the disco years died down – a great move for The Spinners, even if it kept them away from the charts a bit (and in fact, maybe that's the strongest aspect of the album – a great sleeper that really begs for rediscovery all these many years later!) Hubert Eaves and Harry Whitaker both play some great keyboards on the set – and titles include "Can't Shake This Feelin", "Knack For Me", "You Go Your Way", "Love Connection", "Didn't I Blow Your Mind", and "Got To Be Love".

Tracks are all a bit longer than typical pop ditties – and the set includes an extended medley of "Working My Way Back To You/Forgive Me Girl" – plus "With My Eyes", "Disco Ride", "Body Language", "Let's Boogie Let's Dance", and "One One Two Two Boogie Woogie Avenue".

A sweetly grooving set from The Spinners – one that moves along nicely at the midtempo clip the "trippin" in the title might imply – thanks to production and arrangements from Michael Zager! Zager nicely puts aside some of his more disco-oriented modes here – keeping plenty of respect for the group's excellent vocals, and allowing them some really great space on a number of warmly-crafted tunes. John Edwards gets in some great lead vocals on the album – most famously on the record's medley of "Cupid/I've Loved You For A Long Time" – which went onto become a fairly big radio hit. Other tracks include "Streetwise", "I Just Want To Fall In Love", "Now That You're Mine Again", "Split Decision", "I'm Takin You Back", "Heavy On The Sunshine", and "Love Trippin".

Carol Stevens with Phil MooreThat Satin Doll ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $19.99
Quite an unusual record from singer Carol Stevens – a singer who often vocalizes wordlessly, in an eerie, haunting way that's really compelling! Carol's got a breathy voice, and if she was singing the words, she'd no doubt come off as a bit of a sexpot – but here, working with arrangements from Phil Moore, her approach is much more fluid and evocative – kind of a tuneful humming that's really not scatting, and more just melodic vocalizations alongside the instrumental backing. The approach is similar to one used by Moore on some of his more ambitious exotic albums of the 50s – but here, it's nicely restrained and a fair bit jazzy – really great overall, and almost with a late nite, barroom sort of feel. Instrumentation features nice work from Herbie Mann on flute, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Don Elliott on trumpet – plus a bit of piano from Moore. Titles include "Mood For You", "Lurelei", "At Last", "Tender As A Rose", "Romance In The Dark", "Lying In The Hay", and "I'm Playing With Fire". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny StittSonny Stitt & The Top Brass ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A heck of a great little record – one that shouldn't work so well, but it does! For the set, Sonny Stitt's blowing in front of a larger brass section – and while the prospect of a Sonny Stitt big band record might not sound that great at first, this one really kicks, largely because of Sonny's great solo work! Stitt's in perfect form by this point – blowing freely above a core brass group that features Blue Mitchell, Jimmy Cleveland, and Willie Ruff – arranged tightly by Tadd Dameron and Jimmy Mundy, yet still given enough room to swing with a heck of a lot of soul! Also quite nice is the organ work on the set by the obscure female player Perri Lee – a great little groover with a lean sound that cuts through the arrangements and really makes them sparkle! Titles include "Souls Valley", "On A Misty Night", "Stittsie", "Poinciana", "Sea Sea Rider", and "The Four Ninety". LP, Vinyl record album

Donna SummerAnother Place & Time (expanded 3CD edition) ... CD
Atlantic/Driven By The Music (UK), 1988. New Copy ... $42.99 50.99
Donna Summer's in the hands of 80s pop superproducers Stock/Aiken/Waterman this time around – and the trio give her music just the kind of catchy, bouncy feel of some of their bigger hits for other artists at the time! The approach is surprisingly strong for Summer, and almost returns her back to the roots of her music in the 70s – as the SAW style often uses upbeat rhythms aimed at the dancefloor, creating sort of an 80s update to Donna's earlier disco modes! The overall style and instrumentation is decidedly more in the spirit of the time, but there's a similar sense of Summer's energy in the lyrics – and titles include "I Don't Wanna Get Hurt", "The Only One", "Sentimental", "Breakaway", "When Love Takes Over You", and "If It Makes You Feel Good". Special reissue features the great book-style cover and notes of the others in this series – plus 2 more CDs with a whopping 27 more tracks – all mixes from a variety of singles, by Pete Hammond, Clivilles & Cole, Dave Ford, and others. The whole thing is in a cool book-style cover – with a large set of new liner notes in the booklet – and the set includes 6 unreleased mixes – "Whatever Your Heart Desires (ext club mix)", "If It Makes You Feel Good (Dave Ford album master)", "Sentimental (album long master)", "Love's About To Change My Heart (7" long rmx)", "If It Makes You Feel Good (ext feelgood mix)", and "Love's About To Change My Heart (12" rmx)".

Sweet InspirationsSweet Inspirations ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good ... $13.99
The wonderful debut album by the Sweet Inspirations for Atlantic – with the same sweet sound that they had backing Aretha Franklin on her classic recordings! The group was a huge backing boon for everyone from Aretha to Elvis, but their own albums were really great, too – an amazing blend of southern soul with the group vocals that soar with a glow no doubt cultivated from their roots in gospel. This record was recorded by Chips Moman, with some uptown arrangements by Arif Mardin that includes some broader instrumentation (we LOVE those vibes) – always in the service of the incredible harmonies and lead vocals. Great! Tracks include "Oh! What A Fool I've Been", "Blues Stay Away From Me", "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream", "Knock On Wood", "Don't Fight It", "Let It Be Me", "Sweet Inspiration", 'Reach Out To Me", "Here I Am (Take Me)", "Why (Am I Treated So Bad)" and more!

Heavenly soul from the lovely Sweet Inspirations! The record was the group's first secular album for Atlantic – after recording one gospel album, and doing the backings on a number of fine Aretha Franklin sessions – and it's a gem of a female soul record, with the same classic sound you'd hear on Aretha's Atlantic late 60s LPs, but a different twist because of the girls' amazing talent for harmony vocals. Tom Dowd produced the record with a sweet southern-ish sound, and Arif Mardin provides some lofty string arrangements that take the girls' voices to the heavens! Includes some fine numbers written by Cissy Drinkhard Houston – like "I Could Leave You Alone", "You Really Didn't Mean It", and "Where Did It Go" – plus pop numbers like "Alfie", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", and "To Love Somebody", all completely transformed by the group's style!

The set's never hokey – and instead features Joe being honest, open, and expressive on a variety of adult themes – sung in a style that was clearly opening doors around the south – and recorded in Memphis with some great Chips Moman studio work!

Backing is from the trio of pianist Jimmy Wisner – although Mel himself also plays a bit of piano on the record – and the rhythms have this upfront, super-tight sound that really makes Torme's vocals pop – coming across with a fresh, swinging sound that's quite a change from the 40s and 50s! Yet throughout it all, ol' uncle Mel still keeps his pipes in perfect tune – that amazing voice that never lets up for a minute – and which holds its own beautifully on tunes that include "Anything Goes", "Love For Sale", "Love Is Just Around the Corner", "Shakin The Blues Away", and "In Other Words".

Kind of funny, too, because in Mel's California Suite, there's all this stuff about how lousy New York is – but by the time of this early 60s recording, Mel's clearly repented, and he's doing a wonderful job with material like "Let Me Off Uptown", "Autumn In New York", "New York, New York", "Manhattan", and one of the greatest versions of "Sunday In New York" you'll ever hear!

First up is the self-titled Lennie Tristano, from 1955 – darkly imaginative work from the great Tristano – and one of the few full albums he ever cut as a leader!

New Tristano is an incredible record by Lenny – one that features him playing solo piano, but in a way that's so inventive, so creative, so pyrotechnic, that Atlantic Records had to include text on the back cover saying "No use is made of multi-tracking, over-dubbing, or tape-speeding." The album's also one of the last (the last?) that Lennie ever cut – and although many other players are kind of faltering in last sessions like this, Lennie's sounding better than ever – ready to take on a realm of new challenges in the 60s.

After the raw hard R&B of Joe's bigger hit sides for Atlantic, the album's a compelling change – a reminder that Turner had roots that went much deeper than his rock and roll fame – and a depth of delivery that would keep his career strong, long after some of his 50s R&B contemporaries faded! The mix of modes – R&B and jazz – is a bit like some of the later Ray Charles albums on Atlantic – and tracks include "Low Down Dog", "Roll Em Pete", "Cherry Red", "How Long Blues", and "Morning Glories".

A really well-titled album, given that Joe Turner was a key force in the birth of rock and roll in the 50s – not to mention a strong link between jazz, soul, and R&B as well! At the time of these recordings, Turner was already a relatively old singer – at least compared to some of his Atlantic contemporaries – a vocalist with roots in Kansas City jazz of the 30s, but able to really reinvent himself with a raw, rocking sound that was completely out of sight – as hard-hitting on Atlantic as work by Wynonnie Harris over at King Records – and maybe even more important overall, given the number of folks who covered Joe's tunes. Every cut's a classic – and titles include "Flip Flop & Fly", "Honey Hush", "Crawdad Hole", "Chicken & The Hawk", "Oke-She-Moke-She-Pop", "Corrine Corrina", "Well All Right", "Boogie Woogie Country Girl", 'Shake Rattle & Roll", "Feeling Happy", and "Midnight Special".

One of the best-remembered moments of music from the enigmatic Vangelis – a set that's maybe a bit darker and more moody than some of his other records of the time – thanks to the Blade Runner setting provided by director Ridley Scott! Vangelis works plenty of familiar early 80s soundtrack elements here – lots of keyboards and electronic wash, plus even a bit of almost-cheesy sax at times – but he makes the whole thing sound nicely off-kilter at most moments, with just the sort of awkward replication that fits perfectly with the narrative theme of the film. There's some beautiful exotic currents that are maybe even more captivating here on record than you might remember from their use onscreen – and titles include "Memories Of Green", "Tales Of The Future", "Rachel's Song", "Blush Response", "Lone More Kiss Dear", and "Tears In Rain".

The set's a bit unusual for Atlantic Records at the time – almost more of a Prestige or Blue Note-styled date – as Wallington's loose, open, and really hits his groove – working alongside Teddy Kotick on bass and Nick Stabulis on drums, both players whose understated approach lets Wallington sparkle even more in the spotlight. The complexity of his performance is wonderful – even while swinging – and titles include "World Weary", "Billie's Tune", "Godchild", "Serendipity", and "Up Jumped The Devil". LP, Vinyl record album

I Remember Chuck Willis is a classic of Atlantic R&B – issued soon after the tragic early death of the great Chuck Willis! The record includes a chilling photo of Willis' gravestone on the cover – and includes a wonderful sampling of his excellent material for Atlantic, stuff that can often get overlooked in histories of 50s R&B. The set brings together most of the best material from that time, including hits like "C. C. Rider" and "Hang Up My Rock & Roll Shoes" – plus lesser-known material (which we like better), like "Keep A Drivin", "My Baby", "Love Of Loves", "Stop & Think", and "Betty & Dupree." Also includes the stellar "What Am I Living For", which we could hear a hundred times in a row!

A beautiful record, and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by alto player Leo Wright! At the time of the set, Wright was really making some excellent records with Lalo Schifrin and in Dizzy Gillespie's group (where they both were working at the time) – and this set is a perfect example of the lyricism and Latin influences he'd picked up from Lalo, mixed with the soulful expression that was common for Dizzy's combos in the 60s. Leo plays flute on about half the record, and he's working with soulful modern players that include Richard Williams, Charlie Persip, Art Davis, and Junior Mance.

Still he cut some fantastic early work with both Dizzy Gillespie and Lalo Schifrin – and this album captures him right during the peak of that early period! The record features light lively backing from a quartet that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and some tracks have a beautifully groovy sound that's slightly bossa, slightly soul jazz. One of the best of these is Wright's great cover of "A Felicidade", but the record contains many other great moments, like "The Wiggler", "Tali", "Sassy Lady", and "Dionysis". LP, Vinyl record album

Young RascalsGroovin' ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Possibly the biggest album ever by The Rascals – a wonderfully tight batch of tunes that has the group hitting perfectly on all their best fronts! Blue eyed soul mixes wonderfully with some rougher garage-styled rock – and the execution here is perfect enough to please listeners on both sides of the fence. Perhaps most noteworthy is the presence of Arif Mardin arrangements on some of the album's key tracks – a factor that really helps the group find their groove, and sparkle even more brilliantly than before. Titles include "Groovin", "If You Knew", "A Girl Like You", "Find Somebody", "I'm So Happy Now", "Sueno", "How Can I Be Sure", and "It's Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono white label promo! Cover has a couple of lightly bumped corners and a promo sticker, but looks great overall!)

Joe ZawinulZawinul ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good ... $19.99
A beautiful fusion of Joe Zawinul's roots in the groups of Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley – a set with some of the far-reaching jazz ideas of the former, and much of the soulful subtleties of the latter! The album features Joe on electric piano throughout, playing alongside Herbie Hancock in a twin-piano style that's quite spacious, and filled with slow-building, long-flowing lines! Other players include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Earl Turbington on soprano sax, George Davis on flute, Miroslav Vitous and Walter Booker on drums, and Joe Chambers, Billy Hart, and David Lee on a range of percussion. All these elements are used slowly, and sparingly – brought in with a style that's modern, but in a gentle sort of way – not as over the top as some of the work that Joe cut with Miles at the end of the 60s – and almost a more sensitive, compositional approach to the same territory of music. Titles include "Arrival In New York", "Doctor Honoris Causa", "In A Silent Way", "His Last Journey", and "Double Image". LP, Vinyl record album
(Broadway label pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear, some cupring stains, and a center split in the bottom seam.)

VariousSaturday Night At The Uptown ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good ... $5.99
Atlantic soul live – recorded in a great grassroots setting! The performance comes from the Uptown Theater in Philly – as important to that city as The Apollo was to New York – and features a host of key Atlantic Records talents from the 60s, really hitting some hard and heavy notes in the live setting – with a bit of MC introduction at the start from Jimmy Bishop! There's a few great surprises here – artists you don't normally associate with Atlantic – and titles include "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl" by Patty & The Emblems, "Can't You Hear The Beat" by The Carltons, "My Girl Sloopy" and "The Watusi" by The Vibrations – plus "Under The Boardwalk" and "On Broadway" by The Drifters, "Down The Aisle" by Patti LaBelle & The Bluebells, and "I'm Gonna Cry" and "If You Need Me" by Wilson Pickett.
