Bobby DarinIn A Broadway Bag ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A mature side by Bobby Darin - featuring him taking on some of the biggest Broadway tunes of his generation – and doing a pretty darn good job as well! Arrangements are by Shorty Rogers and Perry Botkin, both of whom bring a hip flair to the proceedings – a sound that's usually a fair bit more swinging and jazz-based than you'd hear if you were catching these songs in their original settings. Darin's finger-snapping style is a great one for these tunes – bringing out all their sharper edges in ways that other 60s performers don't always get. Titles include "Night Song", "Try To Remember", "Once Upon A Time", "The Other Half Of Me", "I Believe In You", "It's Today", and "Everybody Has The Right To Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Buddy DeFranco & Louis HayesBlues Bag/Louis Hayes – Two Classic Vee Jay LPs On One CD ... CD
Vee Jay/Blue Moon (Spain), 1960/1964. Used ... $9.99
Two LP's on one CD. The first set is a later one for Vee Jay, and it brings together half of the Jazz Messengers with a batch of west coast players – in a groove that wonderfully mixes together different traditions and rhythms in jazz – and which steps out with a sound that's far more than the sum of its parts! Art Blakey, Lee Morgan, and Curtis Fuller join a group headed by Buddy De Franco, and featuring Victor Feldman on piano and vibes, plus Victor Sproles on bass and Freddie Hill on trumpet. The sound of the group is quite unusual – and a lot lighter than you'd guess – giving Buddy plenty of room to solo in a breezy style that's grown tremendously since his 50s recordings – pushed along by some heavier soul from Art and the group. Titles include "Rain Dance", "Blues Bag", "Twelve Tone Blues", "Kush", and "Cousin Mary". The second album's one of the few ever cut as a leader by Louis Hayes – a very soulful talent who's probably best known for his work with Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley during the late 50s. Hayes' has a wonderful approach to the record – borrowing bits of the exoticism of his work with Silver, and bits of the harder soul jazz from Cannonball's group – all of which is played to perfection by a tight quintet that includes Yusef Lateef, Sam Jones, Barry Harris, and Nat Adderley. Tracks are all originals by the group, and titles include "Hazing", "Rip De Boom", "Teef", and "Sassy Ann". CD

Dusty GrooveDusty Groove Extra-Large Tote Bag – Green ... Misc
Dusty Groove Gear, New Copy ... $1.99
A brilliant update of the Dusty Groove tote bag – one that's super-big, super-wide, and able to carry a few dozen albums or CDs at once! The bag comes with a flat bottom insert – so that you can spread the gusset wide, and slide in whatever you've got to carry – and while the overall design is somewhat lightweight (like those re-usable grocery bags you get at the store), you can still fit plenty inside. You might not want to lug around records in this bag all day long, but it will do in a pinch – and in the meantime, you can fit lots of other everyday things inside – including groceries, gym clothes, tools, sports equipment, and even a basketball (we tried it ourselves!)

A special shoulder bag from Dusty Groove – big enough to carry 20 albums, a bunch of books, or even some groceries – with an adjustable strap that lets you carry the load on your shoulders! The bag's made of the same sort of material you'll find in other re-usable bags on the market – which makes it very light and easy to fold up when not in use – then ready at your side to carry the day's booty whenever you need it!

Dusty Groove Gear/Vaya, New Copy ... $104.99
A totally cool, totally amazing record bag – designed by Dusty Groove with a special eye towards bike-riding record diggers! We buy a lot of records here at Dusty Groove – and we also bike around Chicago a heck of a lot – but we've never found a shoulder bag that's right for records and biking together – until now! With help from the folks at Vaya Bags, we've designed this extra-deep record bag that should hold 40 to 50 LPs snugly in a waterproof bag – with an extra pouch for 7" singles – and even an inner pouch for other goodies too. The bag itself is super-strong – great stitching and very durable – and it's made from recycled bicycle tires, canvas sails, and other reclaimed materials – so you can feel extra-good about using it – and it's got all these other great features too. One of the coolest is the special Vaya adjustable shoulder strap – which is easy to slide up and down while you're wearing it – and a chest-cinching clip, so the bag rides tight. Plus, there's a big reflective strip on the back – for biking at night – and a large flap over the top with lots of velcro to hold it shut. All that, and it's even got the Dusty Groove logo – nice and big! And yes, it's a bit pricey – but this is the kind of bag that will last for years – and works well even if you're not a biker, too.

Nabel (Germany), 1994. Used ... $14.99
Forget the stupid name – because this is a great set! The album was recorded in Germany during the mid 90s, but with a very groovy feel that sounds like some of the classic Verve and Blue Note sides from the 60's! There's a cool vibes/piano sound, and some of the cuts have guest vocals by the great Monika Linges. Breezy and jazzy, but with the kind of rolling grooves that you'd find on a Cal Tjader or Horace Silver record. Includes a great cut called "Waterloop" that's sort of a update of "Cantalope Island", plus lots of other good groovers like "Ayola", "Hellas", "Stepping", and "Peace To". Stupid name, but a great record! CD

Karin Krog & Morten Gunnar LarsenIn A Rag Bag ... CD
Meantime (Norway), 2012. New Copy ... $18.99
Karin Krog really lives up to the title here – working with pianist Morten Gunnar Larsen in a set of tracks that hearken back to the earliest days of jazz – and which definitely open up some ring new territory for the singer! Krog's a vocalist that we've come to associate with some of the most modern elements in jazz – but she's also a sensitive stylist who turns out to do great things with older numbers too – using her mindblowing vocals in ways that are very different than traditional interpretations of these tunes. Morten's piano is very individual, too – ringing out in ways that are more contemporary, yet still resonate with tradition. Titles include "Euphonic Sounds", "In The Dark/In A Mist", "Way Down Yonder", "Spanish Steps", "Wild Cat Blues", "Blue Turning Grey Over You", and "Feeling Too Good Today Blues". CD

Don't be put off by the "blues" in the title – as this is a great album from Jimmy, with a complicated jazzy feel! The set was arranged, composed, and conducted by Manny Albam – who sets Jimmy's organ in a suite of tracks that have a far-reaching sound that you won't find on Jimmy's other albums from the time. Jerome Richardson plays some incredible work on saxes, and the rest of the group includes Joe Newman, Richard Davis, and Mel Lewis. Titles include "Better Late Than Never", "Slim Jim", "Time Waltzes On", "The Deacon's Peekin", and "Friday Nite's Rite". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaSoul Bag/Stone Soul ... CD
Columbia/SPV (Germany), 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.99
A pair of tremendous albums from Mongo Santamaria – back to back in one cool collection! Soul Bag is a stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title! The "soul" reference points to the record's host of 60s soul tunes, which are given a hip Latin spin by Mongo – working here with killer boogaloo arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – with a combo that includes soulful reed lines from Hubert Laws, Sonny Fortune, and Mauricio Smith – plus trumpet from Luis Gasca, and some killer drums from the legendary Pretty Purdie! The mix of jazz and Latin players on the record is really wonderful – and although the tunes are familiar, the presentation is mighty fresh – especially given the way the horn players manage to pack so much into their solos. Titles include "Baby What You Want Me to Do", "Hot Dog", and "Chili Beans" – plus cool versions of "Cold Sweat", "In The Midnight Hour", "Respect", and "Green Onions". Stone Soul is a killer album from Mongo Santamaria's classic 60s run for Columbia – and a record that also features some wonderful alto work from a young Sonny Fortune! Sonny's the key soloist on the record – bringing some sharp jazz elements to an album that's equal part Latin and 60s soul instrumental – served up with key arrangements from Marty Sheller, and played by a cool mix of Latin and soul players that includes Mongo on congas and bongos, plus Pretty Purdie on drums, Haldey Caliman and Hubert Laws on tenor, Luis Gasca on trumpet, and Stephen Berrios, Julito Collazo, and Osualdo Martinez on percussion! Tunes are a mix of covers and cool originals – and titles include "Hitchcock Railway", "See Saw", "Cloud Nine", "Where We Are", "Love Child", "Who's Making Love", and "The Now Generation". CD

Okeh, Late 60s. Very Good ... $18.99
Although Johnny Watson was usually known as Johnny "Guitar" Watson, he plays piano here, as on a few of his other obscure records from the time, and it's a real treat! Despite the "Fats Waller" tag in the title, the set's not as corny as you'd expect, and Johnny manages to bring a beautiful soul sound to the session, with nice hard piano lines, beautiful raspy vocals, and a good rolling groove that's quite different from Fats' usual style. The LP includes a nice instrumental called "Blues For Fats Waller And Company", plus versions of "Ain't Misbehavin", "Makin' Woopee", "What's The Reason", and "I Used To Love You". Great stuff, and one of Johnny's best soul albums! LP, Vinyl record album

For a Bishop, this guy's pretty darn funky! Williams grooves it hard and lean here with The One Mind Experience – an electric Bay Area ensemble that includes Babatunde on percussion, Mike Clark on drums, Dave Liebman on saxes, and Michael Howell on guitar. The album's got one strong standout funk track – a nice chunky groover called "Hip Funk" – plus some other tracks that riff along in a sweet spiritual jazz mode – really taking off in the same kind of energy as some of Pharoah Sanders' recordings for the Theresa label at the time. Titles include "Billy Ballet", "Dolphy", "For Lee", and "One Mind Experience". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 3 ... LP
Andale, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A third great bag of boogaloo – and easily one of the hippest Latin series we've ever carried! As with other volumes, this batch of tracks is dug from the deepest underground of the late 60s east coast Latin scene – the smaller labels that lived in the shadows of Fania, Tico, and Alegre – imprints like Speed, Ghetto, and a few others – all serving up rougher-edged Latin than you might know from the hits! The sound here is often in the best Latin Soul or boogaloo mode – but there's often some rougher edges that make the tracks particularly interesting – ways of approaching the grooves that are quite unique, and a mix of vocal and production techniques that never fail to blow our minds! Titles include "Soul Mambo" by Bruce Cloud, "So Good" by Milton Zapata, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Rainy Night All Over" by Solid State, "Lay An OZ On Me Baby" by Latin Blues Band, "Morty's Harlem" by Moon People, "Wabble With Boogaloo" by Orquesta Olivieri, and "Riki Chi" by La Orquesta Boogaloo.

Dinosaur L (Arthur Russell)24 24 Music ... LP
Sleeping Bag, 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
An incredible full album from Dinosaur L – the legendary New York dancefloor project of Arthur Russell! The group's a punky, funky, chunky amalgam of bass thumping, guitar riffing, keyboard filling, and sax honking – all very much in the spirit of Russell's best quirky club work of the time, but with the added sound here of a more expanded approach – one that takes the tunes in a whole new territory than the more famous 12" singles! The tracks on the set are simply numbered – "1", "2", "3", and so on – and come across almost as free-jamming instrumentals! Totally great stuff – as experimental as it is funky!

A&M, 1967. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Aquarian DreamNorman Connors Presents Aquarian Dream ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A wonderful debut from Aquarian Dream – a group who first appeared under the direction of Norman Connors – and who also have lots of the same blend of jazz, soul, and funk you'd find in Connors' own music of the time! Yet Aquarian Dream are very much their own bag, too – a distinctly different group who are to Connors what Ramp was to Roy Ayers – a separate entity that shares the key production talents of their sponsor – but who break out in a wonderful vibe that's all their own! The album's best remembered for its key clubby groovers, but we also love the mellower moments too – which have a sublime stepping quality that really comes through via instrumentation from Claude Bartee on tenor and soprano sax, and Jacques Burvick on a whole host of cool keyboards. Gloria Jones (not the famous one) is a great lead singer – and titles include the classic Chicago club track "Phoenix" – plus "Look Ahead", "Once Again", "Let Me Be The One", "I'll Always Love You T",, and "Treat Me Like The One You Love".

Polydor, 1976. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole new bag in soul music. There's a wonderful electric vibe running through the record – not just from Roy's vibes, but from the Fender Rhodes and Arp work by Phillip Woo. Features the landmark title cut – "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", one of those tunes that becomes more and more of a classic each year – plus spiritual numbers like "Third Eye" , "Keep on Walking", and "The Golden Rod". Very righteous, and with a cool dope jazzy groove! CD

Burt BacharachCasino Royale (2CD expanded version) ... CD
Colgems/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... $29.99
One of Burt Bacharach's finest moments, and a soundtrack that we never tire of hearing! Burt wrote all the tunes – and the album's a wonderful romp, with lots of odd twists and turns that are quite different from Burt's usual bag (baby!), but which still have all of the charm of his best work. A few performances on the set are by Herb Albert & The Tijuana Brass, who do the completely chaotic "Casino Royale Theme" – and the lovely Dusty Springfield sings a versions of "Look Of Love" that has to be the best ever recorded! Other tracks include "Home James, Don't Spare The Horses", "Money Penny Goes For Broke", "The Venerable Sir James Bond", and "Hi There Miss Goodthighs". But even better is this cool version – which features the original LP presentation at the end, but begins with 33 tracks that replicate the film presentation of the music – and which include numbers not on the original album, and variations on the tunes too! Even includes two vocal numbers by Mike Redway – "Seven Bond In Heaven" and "Dream On James You're Winning" – and lots of musical surprises throughout! CD

Black HeatNo Time To Burn ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $6.99
A stone classic from Black Heat – the group's second album, and even tighter than their first! The group's size has dropped a bit between albums – but that only helps them cook even more – dropping a bit of the horn section from before, which allows even more emphasis on their razor-sharp rhythms! There's a slight hint of Afro Funk in some of the rhythms – and the keyboards cook with lots of sweet clavinet lines – mixed with a production style that features some bubbling electronic elements that remind us a lot of that crazy "magic bag" that was used by the Lafayette Afro-Rock Band. That group might be a good point of comparison, but the band also shares a lot of Kool & The Gang's ensemble funk style – especially on their cover of "Love The Life You Live" – which they burn here beautifully! Other tracks include "Super Cool", "M&M's", "Rapid Fire", "You Should Have Listened", "Times Have Changed", and "Check It All Out". CD

Cicero BlakeHere Comes The Heartache – The Soul Years ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Hard hard hard soul from the great Cicero Blake – a singer who's better known these days for his down-home blues work, but who was a heck of a great soul artist in the 60s and 70s! This wonderfully-done set collects together 23 singles from Cicero's diverse recordings of the 60s and 70s – pulling together recordings that were issued on a variety of different labels, but when taken together show Blake to be an incredibly powerful singer, with a depth to rival that of his Chicago contemporaries, like Tyrone Davis or Syl Johnson! And honestly, even though we'd heard the odd single by Cicero here and there over the years, we'd never gotten a complete picture of his career until this wonderful set – and we're extra-thankful to the folks at Grapevine for doing such a great job on the notes and track selection. Titles include "See What Tomorrow Brings", "Sad Feeling", "Soul Of Pain", "Take It From Me", "Loving You Woman Is Everything", "Shing A Ling", "Here Comes The Heartache", "Should I Go", "Could This Be Love", "Face The Case", "Don't Wait Until Tomorrow", "Bad But Beautiful Bag", "Doin What Comes Naturally", "Dip My Dipper", "Be Good To Me", "Your Love Is Like A Boomerang", and a bonus 90s sweet soul number, "Don't Wanna Blow My Chance With You".

A lost treasure from James Brown & The JBs – a vintage live performance from the early 70s, and one that captures the group at the height of their powers! The format here is very similar to the excellent Revolution Of The Mind set – a totally funky, totally righteous live performance that has James and the group even more energized than in the studio – working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them a legendary funk act – leaping from tune to tune with nary a break at all! Bobby Byrd acts as the MC, and joins James for a bit of vocals – and the group at this point still includes Bootsy Collins on bass, plus loads of great guitar from Catfish Collins, and Fred Wesley on trombone and Jabo Starks on drums. Dave Matthews handled some of the arrangements – and titles include "Soul Power", "Sex Machine", "Bewildered", "It's A New Day", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Brother Rapp", "Super Bad", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/I Got You/I Got The Feelin".

LC CookeComplete SAR Recordings ... CD
SAR/Abkco, 1964. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
The first-ever release of this full album of material by LC Cooke – the younger brother of the late Sam Cooke, but a hell of a singer in his own right! LC issued a few labels for Sam's SAR label in the early 60s, but this full set never saw the light of day – as it was scrapped after Sam's untimely early death – which makes this package the long-overdue release of the album at last! LC's style is a bit deeper than Sam's – still as well put-together, but with a bit less polish on the edges, and a lot more grit in the grooves – and the album mostly features production by Sam Cooke, over sessions from the early 60s – plus some final recordings done by LC with the Magnificent Montague. These 18 tracks are a great revelation – especially when taken together – and Peter Guaralnick wrote a great essay for the notes, which really ties the whole thing together. Titles include "Tell Me", "Take Me For What I Am", "The Lover", "Magic Words", "Sufferin", "Miss Sally", "Gonna Have A Good Time", "Do You Wanna Dance", "You're Working Out Your Bag", "Chalk Like", and "Put Me Down Easy".

Classic Miles Davis from that pivotal year of 1954 – featuring work from 2 different sessions, both of them great! The title track on the album is a key reading of "Bag's Groove", presented here in two versions, both recorded by a quintet that includes Milt "Bags" Jackson on vibes, Thelonious Monk on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – carving out the tune in a nicely modern idiom. The rest of the set features work by Miles in a quintet with Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver – again with support from Heath and Clarke – on tunes that include 2 versions of "But Not For Me", plus early recordings of Sonny Rollins' standards "Oleo", "Airegin", and "Doxy".

Celluloid, 1957. Near Mint- 2LP ... $38.99
A lost Miles Davis concert – recorded in 1957, with many of the same players he used for his classic soundtrack to the French film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud! The group's a quintet with French players Barney Wilen on tenor, Rene Utreger on piano, and Pierre Michelot on bass – grooving with help from Kenny Clarke on drums – and tracks are longish and include many late 50s jazz standards – like "Bag's Groove", "Four", "Walkin", "Round Midnight", and "Lady Bird". Barney Wilen's young tone is razor sharp at this point – and makes for a great counterpoint to the sweeter horn of Miles, coming together with the same magic they shared in their wonderful soundtrack work together. There's a bit of crackle in the recording quality, but the concert's well worth seeking out! LP, Vinyl record album

The tracks are short, but have that magical Desmond quality to them – no tricks, no electric work, just pure and simple coolly blown jazz.

An especially rare live set from Eric Dolphy – recorded on an early trip to Sweden in 1961, and featuring some especially long tunes that really let him open up! Dolphy's working here with a local trio for backup – Rony Johansson on piano, Kurt Lindgren on bass, and Rune Carlsson on drums – but the real focus is on his long and freely creative solos on alto, flute, and bass clarinet. His tone has a very sharp edge – a sound that's never too far out, but which has all the fire of his best recordings for Prestige during this period – and it's especially wonderful to hear the way he transforms familiar numbers with this energy. Titles include "245", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Bag's Groove", "Laura", "I'll Remember April", and "Out Of Nowhere". CD

✨✧ Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records!

Gap BandGap Band (1979) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
The start of the legendary second chapter for the Gap Band – the point when the group had reemerged as the tight funky trio of the Wilson Brothers, with a groove that would really set them up nicely for the 80s! This first album in the new format has a wonderfully tight feel – still plenty of sharp edges that echo their earlier groove, but a leaner quality too – one that's got the bass and drums snapping together wonderfully, really setting the tone for the heaviest grooves. There's also a few mellower cuts too – which really sound great, and give the record the same sort of balance you might hear on work by Heaven & Earth at the time. War's Lonnie Simmons produced – and held the cash bag all the way to the bank! Titles include "I'm In Love", "Got To Get Away", "Messin With My Mind", "Shake", "Baby Baba Boogie", "Open Your Mind Wide", and "I Can Sing". CD

Red GarlandSwingin On The Korner – Live At Keystone Korner ... CD
Resonance, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
Never-heard music from pianist Red Garland – working here with a unique trio that features Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – a lineup that only existed for this one set of performances from 1977! The material is great – maybe better than most Garland albums issued at the time – and the tracks were recorded with great care at the Keystone Korner club in San Francisco – at a level that's similar to the best Fantasy Records live dates from the venue, which were often like this album – a great chance for the artist to really stretch out and do something new! Garland still has that fluid, lyrical sensibility we love in his famous 50s sides – but there's also a much richer, more sophisticated approach to the piano as well – an even deeper sense of tonal color that comes through on the album's long tracks. Jones is great too – increasingly complex during these years, as you'd hear on his own recordings – and a great accompaniment to Red's new modes of expression. The whole thing presents 150 minutes of unreleased music, plus some great notes and photos too – and titles include "Love For Sale", "Billy Boy", "Blues In Bebop", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Bag's Groove", "On A Clear Day", "Straight No Chaser", "Autumn Leaves", and even a version of "The Christmas Song" (since the material was recorded a few weeks before Christmas!)
