Larry CarltonFriends ... LP
Warner, 1983. Very Good ... $2.99
Larry Carlton's got plenty of great friends on board for this sweet session – including Michael Brecker on tenor, Joe Sample and Terry Trotter on Fender Rhodes, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, and even BB King on guitar for one track! Yet the overall vibe is still very much Larry's own – that sharp approach to fusion that Carlton helped spearhead with his work in the 70s, a bit more keyboard-centric than before, but still with plenty of room for the leader to spin out warmly chromatic solos on guitar. Titles include "South Town", "Breaking Ground", "Song In The 5th Grade", "LA NY", and "Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

Rance Allen GroupI Feel Like Going On ... LP
Stax, 1980. Very Good ... $9.99
A great little record from Rance – recorded in 1980 on his return to Stax after a stint at Capitol. The set's got a really wonderful feel – all the deep soul of Rance's early albums for Stax, mixed with some of the bubbling touches he picked up from working with Larry Mizell at Capitol. The whole thing's a magically righteous experience – and Rance's voice is better than ever, with a feel that's got a bit of DJ Rogers in it. Titles include "I Feel Like Going On", "Where Did I Go Wrong", "Some People", "Can't Get Enough", and "I Will Forever Lean On You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small peeled spot in one corner.)

Australian All Stars (with Don Burrows)Jazz For Beach-Nicks (Australian pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Australia), 1959. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Some of the hippest early jazz to come from Australia – and an major indication that something great was going on in the scene down under! The album's got a bright modern edge right from the start – none of the hoke you'd guess from the title and cover image – and features surprisingly smoking rhythms, matched with some very deft reed work from both a young Don Burrows and Dave Rutledge – both of them trading lines on flute and clarinet, with Burrows on baritone and Rutledge on tenor. Other quintet members include Terry Wilkerson on piano, Ron Webber on drums, and Freddy Logan on bass – and the album's got a really inventive quality that keeps things interesting all the way through. Titles include "Doxy", "Golden Sands", "Strictly From Hunger", "Ka Link", "Where Or When", and "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Australian pressing – on Columbia! Cover has a stereo sticker in one corner.)

✨✧ William BellComing Back For More ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
A really wonderful post-Stax album from the great William Bell – a set that has the singer still stepping out with all those great deep soul modes from the 60s, but also finding a hipper, more laidback approach as well! There's a beautiful mellow vibe to the record – one that recalls some of Millie Jackson's best ballad work of the time, especially in the way it warms things up with a bit of class, while taking away none of the power of the vocals. Bell produced and arranged the whole set with help from Paul Mitchell – and there's still lots of nice down home themes and feelings to the record, but William's also working with a bubbling groove that comes off great – and which updates his sound without selling his soul – making for a great set in the modern/southern mode. Titles include "Tryin To Love Two", "If Sex Was All We Had", "Relax", "You Don't Miss Your Water", "Coming Back For More", "Just Another Way To Feel", and "I Absotively Posolutely Love You".

Max BennettHence Home – You Idle Creatures – Get You Home (10'' LP) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good ... $49.99
A great little album that's as compelling as its title! The set was one of the classic early 10" jazz sides recorded for Bethlehem in the early years of the label – and it features a group led by bassist Max Bennett, and featuring Charlie Mariano on alto, Stan Levy on drums, Claude Williamson on piano, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Helen Carr makes a vocal appearance on a track or two, and the album's got a nicely schizophrenic style that pushes it past simple expectations – really cooking with a mean Mariano solo one minute, and laying back for a mellower vocal passage the next. Titles include "Rubberneck", "Just Max", "They Say", "TK", "Do You Know Why", and "I'll Never Smile Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light peeling of the laminate near the opening, but is nice overall.)

George BensonBad Benson ... LP
CTI, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy backings. Highlights include "No Sooner Said Than Done", which has some very weird processing on the guitar; "Full Compass", which has some nice hard drums; and "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams", a mellow moody track.

✨✧ George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Walter BentonOut Of This World ... LP
Jazzland, 1960. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the few sessions ever recorded by tenor player Walter Benton – a great talent with a very strong voice, coming out of a gutsier 50s era, and growing into a capable hardbop player by the time of this set. The album's got Benton playing in a quintet that features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and either Jimmy Cobb or Albert Heath on drums – and although the group's clearly not Benton's working unit, the overall sound of the record is quite strong, with very capable rhythm playing, and some nicely arcing solos with spirit and surprising touches. Titles include "Iris", "Night Movement", "A Blues Mood", "Azil", and "Walter's Altar". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Jazzland pressing, with deep groove. Cover has splitting on most seams, but is still decent overall.)

Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Very Good+ ... $18.99
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one! The album is ostensibly a set of jazz versions of tunes from the musical Golden Boy, and the group this time is a larger one than usual – a total of 10 players, led by Blakey – and playing beautifully over arrangements from Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller, and Cedar Walton! The style's not any sort of clunky "jazz meets Broadway" mode, though – as the care taken by the artists involved help elevate the tunes, and the performance, to a whole new soulful level – hardly what you'd expect! The group features trumpet work from Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, tenor from Wayne Shorter, alto from James Spaulding, trombone from Curtis Fuller, baritone from Charles Davis, piano from Cedar Walton, and bass from Reggie Workman – all very hip cats, working here with the same sort of large group textures you might hear on Freddie Hubbard's Body & Soul album from the same time, mixed with some more traditionally Blakey-led moments. Titles include "Yes I Can", "Theme From Golden Boy", "Lorna's Here", "This is The Life", and "There's A Party". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original deep groove pressing! Cover has a small sticker and a small stain.)

Blue MagicBlue Magic ... LP
Atco, 1974. Good+ ... $4.99
The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman Harris, who makes the vocals sound equally great on mellow tracks and uptempo numbers – setting a new Philly standard with the album, and one that few other groups could match so well! Every piece of the core 70s Philly harmony sound is in place here – from the near-perfect (but wonderfully human) vocals of the group, to the full yet subtle backings by Sigma players who include Vince Montana, Earl Young, Bobby Eli, and Harris himself – and if you've ever needed a record to prove the genius of the east coast harmony sound, this may well be it! Titles include "Look Me Up", "What's Come Over Me", "Tear It Down", "Sideshow", "Stop To Start", "Welcome To The Club", and "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, some splitting a cutout notch and a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Blue MagicMystic Dragons ... LP
Atco, 1976. Very Good- ... $2.99
Blue Magic getting a bit bolder than before – adding in some heavier funk that takes them past the mellow moments of their earliest years – yet still serving up some great harmonies in the process! The change is a subtle one – heard on some of the album's more hard-grooving tracks, which also bring in some full arrangements that echo the trippy feel of the cover – yet which still always respect that slight heartbreaking undercurrent of the group's great vocals, thanks to arrangements from Bobby Eli! Just about every moment from Blue Magic is totally great, and this album is no exception – with titles that include "Freak N Stein", "Mother Funk", "To Get Love", "See The Bedroom", "Summer Snow", "Making Love To A Memory", and "Spark Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

Blue NotesTruth Has Come To Light ... LP
Glades, 1977. Very Good ... $8.99
A strange but great chapter of The Blue Notes – working here without Harold Melvin or Teddy Pendergrass, but still sounding pretty great on their own! This version of The Blue Notes is a male quartet – not the Melvin group with Sharon Paige who were recording for ABC – and they get some fresh help in the studio from George Perry, who brings in this soaring groove that still echoes earlier Philly work, but also has a bit more of a clubby vibe overall! The style's never disco, but makes for some great uptempo soul – the sort that really lets the group's wonderful vocal style soar strongly – a rich blend that's totally great even without Teddy, and which has a great mix of raspy leads and warm harmonies. Titles include the wicked jazzy dancer "The Girl Makes Me Wanna Sing" – plus "It's Over", "Memories", "Standing By You Girl", "People Are Running Around", and "The Truth Has Come To Light".

BrainstormJourney To The Light ... LP
Tabu, 1978. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A tremendous little album from Brainstorm – funky and clubby at the same time – yet delivered with this righteous energy that few of their contemporaries could ever hope to match! There's a perfect melding of modes going on here that may well rival Earth Wind & Fire at their best – really avoiding any of the commercial or club cliches of some of the other big funk ensembles of the time, and stretching back with a sense of energy that really keeps the whole thing going. The instrumentation is impeccable – with some jazzy flourishes that really keep things interesting – but it's the vocals that really make the album sparkle, as they've got a blending of male and female voices that's a bit like some of Roy Ayers' work, but also with some echoes of the spiritual jazz underground. The set features the wonderful two-part number "We're On Our Way Home" – a joyous anthem that never gets old – and other titles include "Loving Just You", "If You Ever Need To Cry", "Brand New Day", "Journey To The Light", and "Positive Thinking". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has wear and creases in the corners.)

Brecker BrothersBrecker Brothers ... LP
Arista, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Tightly woven jazz funk – the first super effort from the team of Randy & Michael Brecker, whose twin-horn frontline forged a very popular sound in the mid 70s! The record may not be the most groundbreaking bit of jazz funk you'll ever own – but there's some really well-crafted numbers on the set with a strong smooth approach that still sits well after all these years, a lot more so than some of the group's later work. Titles include "Sneakin Up Behind You", "Rocks", "Levitate", "Some Skunk Funk", "Sponge", "A Creature Of Many Faces", and "DBB". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownCold Sweat ... LP

A stone classic from Brother James – a wonderful 60s album built around the incredible track "Cold Sweat", served up here in a massive two-part version, and surrounded by a good range of material that really show James in a great variety of styles! The Godfather's vocals burst out nicely with some wonderfully soulful overtones, no matter what the tune – and titles include "Fever", "Good Rockin Tonight", "Back Stabbin", "Mona Lisa", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Nature Boy" and "I Want To Be Around" – as well as "Cold Sweat (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown & OthersTwist Around (aka Jump Around) ... LP
King, Early 60s. Very Good ... $79.99
A slammin' set of heavy R&B numbers from James Brown – combined in here with some other nice tracks from King Records artists of the time! The set almost has the same feeling as some of the James Brown Show albums – in that James is presented with other hard-hitting artists of his time – yet the difference here is that the others are King Records giants in their own right. The album features about 50% material by James – all hard hitters that include "Suds", "Hold It", "Scratch", "Night Train", "Cross Firing", and "Night Flying" – nearly all of which are instrumentals, in the best early King tradition! These are followed up by other tunes, mostly instrumental, from other artists – including "Doin Everything" and "Switch A Roo" by Henry Moore, "Tonk Game" by Hank Marr, "Bushy Tail" by Clifford Scott, "The Wobble" by The Wobblers, and "Just A Little Bit Of Everything" by Herb Hardesty'. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom BrowneRockin Radio ... LP
Arista, 1983. Very Good ... $0.99
A classic killer from trumpeter Tom Browne – a smoking set that still has all the jazz funk touches of his earlier records, yet which also picks up a bit of an electro vibe as well! The move here is a bit like that taken by some of Browne's labelmates on GRP at the time – particularly Bobby Broom and Bernard Wright – and offers up a great mix of jazzy roots and some of the newer sounds hitting the streets in the early 80s – a vibe that's maybe one of the first moments when older genres of music were beginning to show an influence from hip hop! Maurice Starr handles most of the production, and really makes things tight throughout – but Tom himself does a great job of keeping things interesting with the solos, augmenting the electric vibe with some rock-solid acoustic playing. Titles include "Rockin Radio", "Angeline", "Brighter Tomorrow", "Never My Love", "Mr Business", "Cruisin", and "Feel Like Makin Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Carter & Bobby BradfordFlight For Four ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $79.99
Spectacular work from one of the most groundbreaking groups of its time – the legendary John Carter/Bobby Bradford Quartet – quite possibly the hippest thing going in the LA scene of the late 60s! The group includes Carter on alto and tenor, Bradford on trumpet – working together in these amazing lines that have both players running off together in a style that's free, but often quite rhythmic – spurred on to move past the new freedoms unlocked by the Ornette Coleman group a few years before! Yet the vibe here is very different than Ornette, too – given the bold, righteous power that comes through in the voices of both players – working here at a level that seems to blow away just about anything else going on in the American avant garde at the time. The group has just two more players to round out its amazing sound – Tom Williamson on bass, and Bruz Freeman (brother of Von and George!) on drums – and all tracks are long and free, yet also fragile and intimate – with an almost painterly sense of beauty and emotion that stands in stark contrast to much of the avant work of the time coming out of the east coast. Titles include "Domino", "Abstractions For Three Lovers", "Woman", and "The Second Set". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.

Junie C Cobb & His New Hometown BandChicago – The Living Legends ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A trad-revival set recorded on Chicago's south side in the early 60s – part of an excellent series on Riverside, seeking to re-discover some older jazz and blues greats who were languishing in the Windy City at the time! Junie C Cobb plays mostly piano on the date, but also sings on one number too – in a style that's got plenty of bluesy undercurrents, particularly on the numbers that feature vocals by Annabelle Calhoun. Other group members include Leon Washington on tenor, Fortunatus Fip Ricard on trumpet, and Harlen Bobby Floyd on trombone – and titles include "Be Mine", "Just Because Of You", "Swing Your Hurdy Gurdy", "Once Or Twice", and "Belligerent Blues".

Nat King ColeNat King Cole Sings/George Shearing Plays (with bonus record!) ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good+ 2LP ... $6.99
A nice little session that's one of Nat's last great vocal albums – thanks to some solid jazz backing by George Shearing. Shearing's group here is a super-hip west coast Latin one, with Emil Richards on vibes, Al Hendrickson on guitar, Al McKibbon on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tracks have them augmented by some larger backings by Ralph Carmichael – which creates this dreamy jazzy pillow for Nat to sing over. Cole's voice is still super-sweet and super-sexy, and the record is a good mix of ballads and more jazzy material. Titles include "Lost April", "Azure-Te", "September Song", "Don't Go", "There's A Lull In My Life", and "Serenata". Also includes bonus LP – with 6 tracks by Nat King Cole, and 6 tracks by George Shearing! LP, Vinyl record album
