Steve Davis with Larry WillisLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2009. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite records ever from trombonist Steve Davis – a live date recorded at Smalls, and one that lets him stretch out a lot more than most of his studio albums! The setting is wonderful – an open-ended, easygoing quintet with great piano from Larry Willis – and a groove that is a nice change from some of the tighter modes that Davis often hits with his One For All compadres. As a result, Steve really takes some nice chances on the solos – and shows a range of his horn that impresses us even more than usual – and heck, we already think he's a great player! Altoist Mike DiRubbo brings a nice edge to the proceedings with some great solo work of his own – and the rest of the group features Gerald Cannon on bass and Willie Jones III on drums. Titles include "Spirit Waltz", "Nature Boy/To Wisdom The Prize", and "Daydream/Outro". CD

✨✧ Blossom Dearie & Les Blue StarsJazz In Paris – Pianist – Les Blue Stars ... CD
Universal (France), 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 lesser-known sides of Blossom Dearie – both recorded in Paris in the 50s! The first 8 tracks on the set are from a rare 10" session recorded in 1955 – one that features Blossom only at the piano, not singing, but swinging in a solid trio format. Tracks on that session include "The Boy Next Door", "Down In The Depths Of The 90th Floor", "April In Paris", and "Blue Moon". The other 4 tracks on the set are from a 45rpm ep by Blossom's famous vocal group, The Blue Stars. The ensemble featured vocalese performances by young singers that included Christine Legrand, Jeanine De Waleyne, and Fats Sadi – and was the virtual blueprint for later jazz vocal groups, like Les Double Six or The Swingle Singers. Titles from that group include "Toute Ma Joie", "Embrasse Moi Bien", and "Toute Ma Joie". CD

✨✧ DevoOh, No! It's Devo ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more goofball pop groove. Includes the completely great singles "Time Out For Fun","Peek-a-boo!" and "That's Good", plus "Out Of Sync", "Explosions", "Patterns", "Big Mess", "Speed Racer", "What I Must Do", "I Desire" and "Deep Sleep". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Stand on back is still fully intact.)

✨✧ Charles EarlandBoss Organ ... LP
Choice, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Easily the best of the pre-Prestige albums from Charles Earland – a really smoking trio session, done in the soulful styles that Earland was putting down in the clubs at the time! The group here features a young Jimmy Ponder on guitar – playing in that totally tight, totally amazing way he used on his first few soul jazz sessions for bigger labels – a sound that's a far bit better than most of his mainstream work in years to come. The group really cooks nicely throughout, and the recording quality is great too – way better than some of those dodgy sessions that were issued after Charlie's bigger fame, and handled well by the Choice/Sound Of America label, which mostly did gospel sessions. Titles include the originals "Millology", "Mustang", "Six Twice", and "Wha's Happinin" – plus a wild remake of "Danny Boy"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear, and a small bit of seam splitting.)

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldElla In Hamburg ... LP
Verve, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very lively, very swinging little set from Ella Fitzgerald – recorded in Germany, the site of more than one great live date from her over the years – and done in a freewheeling style that makes the record a real standout in her 60s catalog! Backing is only by a trio – Tommy Flanagan piano, Keeter Betts bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – but the grooves are full enough to almost come from a big band, especially when mixed with the dynamic styles of Ella's vocals! Most tunes are older standards, but there's a few groovier 60s numbers as well – and in a way, the record's a bit of a transition from Fitzgerald's older Verve modes, and some of the hipper work she'd do for MPS and Warner at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Walk Right In", "Old Black Magic", "Here's That Rainy Day", "The Boy From Ipanema", and a great take on Arnett Cobb's "Smooth Sailing". LP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing in a slightly different cover, with some pen.)

✨✧ Redd FoxxYou Gotta Wash Your Ass ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Redd Foxx doing is thing live in '75 at the Apollo – his return to recording after 12 years without a comedy album! You Gotta Wash Your Ass was cut while Sanford & Son was still in production – making this blue performance a gritty return to form for Foxx! It isn't as flamboyantly raw as some of his earlier records – but there are a lot of funny moments here – with a laidback Foxx riffing on themes that younger black comics were only then catching up with! It's best routine might be the one on the meaning of "Funky" – and that one's just waiting for one of you budding DJs to start cutting it up on the 1's and 2's! Other bits & punchlines include "Ugly Kids In New York", "Two Sissies", "I Was An Altar Boy", "Have You Tried Ban Roll On?", "I Love Black Women", "You're Kind Of Dumb & Ugly", "I Hate A Loud Broad", "I Stick It In Beans", "Ni**er's In The Dictionary", "You Look Like A Pu**y To Me" and "You Gotta Wash Your Ass".

✨✧ Gang Of FourSongs Of The Free ... LP
Warner, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing actually seems pretty well thought out – taking the heady politics of earlier records, and putting them into catchy guitar-driven dancefloor tracks that clearly get the message out to a whole new audience of converts! Titles include "Call Me Up", "I Love A Man In Uniform", "Life It's A Shame", "I Will Be A Good Boy", "The History Of The World", "Muscle For Brains", "Of The Instant", and the sublime William Blake-inspired groover "We Live As We Dream, Alone".

✨✧ Lorraine GellerLorraine Geller Memorial (Lorrane Geller At The Piano plus more) ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1954/1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of work by Lorraine Geller – wife of saxophonist Herb Geller, and a heck of a piano player in her own right! The bulk of the CD features tracks from the only album that Lorraine ever cut under her own name – a record that has her working with an LA trio that features Leroy Vinnegar on bass and drumming by either Lawrence Marable or Bruz Freeman – on unusual titles that include "Clash By Night", "Madam X", "Mystery Theatre", and "Everybody's Blues". 4 additional tracks on the set are from a 1954 session with Herb – a quartet date that also features John Simmons on bass and Roy Harte on drums – on titles that include "I Feel Like A Feather In The Breeze", "Mad About The Boy", "Everything I've Got Belongs To You", and "It's Swell Of You". The last 3 tracks are from a live Stars Of Jazz TV performance in 1957 – and feature Lorraine in a quartet with some great tenor and flute work by James Clay. Titles include "Paul's Pal", "I Thought Of You", and "It's Alright With Me". CD

✨✧ Kenny Graham's Afro CubistsAfro Kadabra Caribbean Suite – Kenny Graham's Afro Cubists Vol 2 ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), 1953. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from Kenny Graham – maybe the only musician on the London scene of the postwar years who could take on Latin music, and make it sound as sharp as work from the other side of the Atlantic! Graham's working here with his amazing Afro-Cubists group – an ensemble filled with the best modern players British jazz had to offer at the time – with tenor work from Graham, Derek Humble, and Peter King – plus Phil Seamen on drums, Joe Hunter on trumpet, and Roy Plummer on guitar! The arrangements are wonderful – heavy on percussion, but equally weighted to the vivid work on horns – and titles include "Jump For Joe", "Afro Kadabra", "Bongo Chant", "Saga Boy", "Dance Of The Zombies", "Wha Huppin Sah", "Tempo Medio Lento", and "Hatian Ritual".

An overlooked late Capitol Records gem from the great Merle Haggard – with titles that include "A Working Man Can't Get Nowhere Today", "I'm A White Boy", "Making Believe", "Got A Letter From My Kid Today", "Blues For Dixie", and "Running Kind". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live ... LP
Atco, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam and staining & waviness on the bottom half.)

✨✧ Jimmy HolidayHow Can I Forget? – The Everest Sessions ... CD
Acrobat (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice 60s southern soul from shouter/songwriter Jimmy Hollywood – a collection of his rare singles for the Everest label! Jimmy is best known as an ace songwriter, having penned many hits for a wide range of artists, but this collection shows that he was also performer of the first orders! He rolls between the gritty shout of the Bobby Bland school, to more melodic, string-accented material of the Ben E King school. It's all nice – and a joy to have collected on CD! Tracks include "How Can I Forget", "Janet", "Don't Laugh", "Poor Boy", "Country Girl", "I've Got A Woman", "I Lied", "One More Thing", "Hollywood" and more! CD
Also available How Can I Forget? – The Everest Sessions ... CD 6.99

✨✧ Shirley HornShirley Horn Live At The Four Queens ... CD
Resonance, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Unissued live work from the great Shirley Horn – recorded in Las Vegas right before her big comeback recordings of the 90s – at a time when Shirley was hardly getting a chance to make an album! That lack of attention hardly matters to Horn, though – as she faces this performance with all of the class, charm, and undeniable soul of her bigger label material – both singing and playing piano with that unique sense of phrasing that made her a standout from the 60s onward – easily one of the coolest jazz talents of her generation – and an artist that we'd rank up there with Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, and a rare few others. The album's got a few especially nice long tracks – which have Shirley stretching out with great long solos on piano, too – in a trio that features Charles Ables on bass and Steve Williams on drums. Titles include "Meditation", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Hi Fly", "Just For A Thrill", "Blues For Big Scotia", "Lover Man", and "Isn't It Romantic". CD
Also available Shirley Horn Live At The Four Queens ... CD 16.99

✨✧ Lena HorneStormy Weather ... LP
RCA, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Lena Horne's greatest albums of the 50s – a rock-solid effort that takes its name from her famous film appearance of the 40s, but which features some wonderfully sophisticated songs in a very postwar mode! As with other RCA dates of the time, the orchestra's handled by Lena's partner Lennie Hayton – and has a nice jazzy pitch, especially on tunes that feature trumpet solos from Charlie Shavers. Titles include "Summertime", "Mad About The Boy", "Tomorrow Mountain", "Ridin On The Moon", "I Wonder What Became Of Me", and "Just One Of Those Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ ImpressionsNever Ending Impressions ... LP
ABC, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A major winner from The Impressions! Virtually all of their material for ABC was excellent – and this LP is no exception, as it's got loads of original Curtis Mayfield compositions, and plenty of great arrangements by Chicago soul legend Johnny Pate. The group is extremely soulful at this point – and they sound great on just about every cut. Titles include "Ten To One", "I'm So Proud", "Sister Love", "Little Boy Blue", "Girl You Don't Know Me", "I Gotta Keep Movin", and "A Woman Who Loves Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 60s pressing – sealed!)

✨✧ Milt JacksonMilt Jackson Big 4 At The Montreux Jazz Festival 1975 ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Milt Jackson's working here with his "Big 4" group – a quartet (natch) that includes Oscar Peterson on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – all opening up nicely in this laidback live environment! Despite the Montreux hype of the 70s, the record's got a surprisingly intimate feel – and offers a nicely restrained Peterson doing some very sensitive solo work – augmented by some of Jackson's most chromatic sounds on vibes. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "Night Mist Blues", "Stella By Starlight", "Speed Ball", "Nature Boy", and "Funji Mama". CD

✨✧ Louis JordanGo Blow Your Horn (10 inch LP) ... LP
Aladdin, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of some of Jordan's rare mid 50s work for Aladdin – arguably a lot more satisfying than his earlier sides for Decca, mostly because the production's cleaner and the group is smaller. Tracks include some of his hard swinging classics – like "Private Property", "Messy Bessy", "I'll Die Happy", "Dad Gum Ya Hide, Boy", and "Hurry Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(French reissue – from 1983.)

✨✧ Charles KynardWoga ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet organ lines, heavy drums, and a great little groove throughout – a tight batch of groovers from the mighty Charles Kynard! The keyboardist is in fine 70s form here – stepping away from the sparer sound of his albums for Prestige with a fuller style for Mainstream Records – in a groove that's almost part blacksploitation funk, thanks to some sharp backings from arranger Richard Fritz! The mighty Paul Humphrey is at the bottom of the set on nicely funky drums – and other players include Arthur Adams on guitar, Chuck Rainey on bass, and some great additional horns, which give the record a larger jazzy finish, but never get in the way of Kynard's lean, mean organ lines. There's a great version of "Rock Steady" on the album, one that has a great funky intro – plus the cuts "Shout", "Lime Twig", "Slop Jar", "Name The Missing Word", "Little Ghetto Boy", and "Hot Sauce".

(70s pressing.)
