Barney WilenTilt (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Vogue/Sony (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Important early work from one of the greatest European saxophonists of the 50s – a seminal batch of music recorded for the Vogue label in the 50s! Wilen also recorded famously with American musicians during the 50s – including Miles Davis and Art Blakey – but this set features Barney's searing tenor in the company of an all-French group – with the boppish Maurice Vander on piano, plus Charles Saudrais on drums, and Bibi Rovere on bass. Titles include more than a few Monk tunes – including "Hackensack", "Think of One", and "Mysterioso" – plus other jazz standards like "Night In Tunisia" and "Blue N Boogie" – all given a new sort of voice by Wilen. The 6 bonus tracks include alternate versions of "Blue N' Boogie", "Nature Boy", "Hackensack" and "Blue Monk", plus "We See" and "Let's Call This". CD

Jackie WilsonSoul Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $19.99
Soul Time from Jackie Wilson – a set that has the singer really opening up on some hard-edged groovers, then laying back into some wonderful mellow cuts too! The front cover says "featuring Danny Boy and other great Soul Songs" – and while it's tough to even imagine "Danny Boy" as a soul song, and not an Irish tenor chestnut – it's also important to remember that Jackie's work in taking the track, as with others of its nature, was a key factor in crossing over soul audiences. Maybe not as important as the work of Motown, sure, but Jackie was almost doing it first – as you'll hear on this album, which really balances things nicely, and provided a tremendous showcase for the singer's many talents. The set's got arrangements by Horace Ott, Teacho Wiltshire, and Dick Jacobs – and there's some great little soul numbers in the set – including "A Kiss A Thrill & Goodbye", "Soul Time", "She'll Be There", "Better Play It Safe", and the uptown chiller "No Pity In The Naked City". Also features the bonus tracks "I Believe I'll Love On" and "I'm So Lonely" – plus a duet with Lavern Baker on the track "Think Twice". CD

Nancy WilsonHow Glad I Am ... LP LP format
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good ... $0.99
Nice stuff from that period when Nancy was forging her unique mix of soul, jazz, and pop vocals into a sophisticated blend that transcended all styles. The title cut's a great one, with Nancy's vocals lilting nicely over the top – and the record features some other nice moments, like "The Boy From Ipanema", "I Wanna Be With You", "Quiet Nights", "West Coast Blues", and "It's Time To Go".

Good small group work by this famous pair of trombonists – with them as the lead soloists, in front of rhythm backing by Dick Katz, Al Harewood, and either Milt Hinton or Wendell Marshall. Tracks are short, but the trombone interplay is pretty fierce. Titles include "Thou Swell", "Mad About The Boy", "Gong Rock", and "Lope City". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bernard WrightFunky Beat ... LP LP format
Arista, 1983. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Bernard Wright's second album – an 80s groove electro classic that's quite different than his first LP! The record takes Bernard firmly into a b-boy jazz mode – working keyboards, bass, and drum programs into a groove that's farther reaching and more soulful than anything that Herbie Hancock was doing at the time. And as with his first album, Bernard's got plenty of great help on this one – as the record features work by Weldon Irvine, Lenny White, Dave Grusin, and others. The album includes some great Weldon Irvine compositions – like a remake of "Mr Clean", and the sweet vocal numbers "Won't You Let Me Love You" and "Keep On Doing That Right Thing", both of them warm wonderful tunes that stand with the best work on the album! Also includes a straight jazz version of "Joy Spring", and the breakin' tracks "Funky Beat", "Get Your Lover Back", "Video Generation", and "Move Your Body". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a few creases.)

Tsuyoshi YamamotoMidnight Sun (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD CD format
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $28.99
One of the most sensitively soulful records of the 70s from pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto – a set that still has him working in a trio format, but which also has a slightly more mellow feel overall – with some especially great work from the leader on the ballads! Yamamoto's style is maturing strongly here – and he's got this commanding spectrum of sound from the piano – gentle right hand passages and deep left hand lines – all nicely balanced with work from Tsutomo Okada on bass and Keiji Kishida on drums. Titles include "Billy Boy", "A Shade Of Love", "Midnight Sun", "Autumn Leaves", "Wave", "Blue Manhattan", and "Kid". CD

Timi YuroI'm A Star Now – Rarities 1956 to 1982 ... CD CD format
RPM (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Really rare work from the great Timi Yuro – a set of never-issued tracks, plus a few unusual Memphis soul singles she cut in the 60s! Timi's voice is wonderful – one of the most emotive of her generation – including the best singers in soul, country, and pop – all styles that Yuro seems to borrow from in her music, as well as some of the more expressive vocalists working in France during the postwar years! By that, we mean that we might well want to call Timi the American Edith Piaf – especially in the early material that takes up the bulk of the CD – as only a handful of songs were cut after the 60s. And as the set moves on, you can hear Yuro really get a strong sense of soul – the style that put her in more record collections back in the day than you might expect. Titles include "You're Gonna Smile", "Love Is A Beautiful Thing", "Bye Bye Little Boy", "This Is My Song", "I'll Belong To You", "Daddy", "It's Only A Daydream", "Wings Of Inspiration", "Words", and "Let's Write A Love Song". 25 tracks in all!

VariousCriminal Records – Law, Disorder, & The Pursuit Of Vinyl Justice ... CD CD format
Ace (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
A very cool little record – almost the musical equivalent of pulp paperbacks and b-movie crime films – served up on a host of rare tracks from the 50s and early 60s! Crime is the dominant theme here – as you might guess from the title – but the great thing about the music is the way it's handled – often with a slight sense of humor that offers up a nice contrast to more serious crime-based pop culture of the time – reflecting the postwar fascination with the genre, but offering up its own vision of things as well! Instrumentation and production usually play a big part in the tunes – pretty crafty, with lots of cool twists and turns that make things as vivid as pre-code comic book or True Confessions magazine! Titles include "Cops & Robbers" by Boogaloo & His Gallant Crew, "Dick Tracy" by The Chants, "The Prisoner's Song" by Hylo Brown, "21 Days In Jail" by Magic Sam, "Mr Dillon" by The Delcardos, "Life To Go" by George Jones, "Bad Detective" by The Coasters, "Birmingham Jail" by Warren Storm, "Jail Bird" by Sonny Knight, "Prisoner's Plea" by Billy Boy, "Dragnet" by Ray Anthony, and "Have You Got The Gumption" by Scatman Crothers.

VariousFree Soul – The Treasure Of Hi Records ... CD CD format
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $25.99
A great groovy take on the sound of the legendary Hi Records – the Memphis soul powerhouse that gave us so many wonderful records in the 70s! The sound of Hi here is a bit different than you may know from the hits – as the label is seen through the great filter of the Free Soul series – which focuses on mellow groovers and midtempo tracks that have a bright, bubbly approach to soul – all work that still has all the deep soul roots of Hi at its best, but which also features rhythms and grooves that are less familiar in the label's catalog! There's some very choice singles here, next to overlooked album cuts by artists who got to issue full length sets for Hi – and as always with Free Soul, you get plenty of music for your money. Titles include "Little Things" by Phillip Mitchell, "Got To Find My Baby" by James Gadson, "Roots Of Love" by Quiet Elegance, "Too Much Mystery" by Otis Clay, "Look At The Boy" by Jean Plum, "I Don't Do Windows" by OV Wright, "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright" by Willie Mitchell & Don Bryant, "Somebody's On Your Case" by Ann Peebles, "Save The Last Dance For Me" by Henry She, "Let Them Know You Care" by George Jackson, and "I'm So Thankful" by Al Perkins.
