Barry AltschulFor Stu ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1979. Used ... $6.99
An album dedicated to the late drummer Stu Martin – and a set that features some very dynamic drum work from longtime friend Barry Altschul! The album has Altschul really hitting some new notes in his music – stepping off with a bit more dynamic energy than some of his other 70s recordings, working with a group that has a nicely elastic feel – able to change sounds and shapes at the drop of a hat! Other quartet members include Anthony Davis on piano, Ray Anderson on trombone, and Rick Rozie on bass – and the trombone of Anderson is especially great here, adding in a sense of warmth, and almost playfulness at points. Titles include "Drum Role", "Sleepwalker", "For Stu", and a version of the Mingus classic "Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress Then Silk Blues". CD

John BarryWrong Box ... LP
Mainstream, 1966. Sealed ... $14.99
One of the lesser-known John Barry scores of the 60s – penned for an equally lesser-known comedy that starred Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Peter Cook, Tony Hancock, and Dudley Moore! The tunes have kind of a period feel with slight whimsical touches – not as mod and groovy as you might expect for the time, or for Barry – but with a strong orchestral approach overall, showing John's ability to work well in a more mainstream setting. There's a nice undercurrent of darkness at times, as on some of Barry's other orchestral work – and titles include "Morris Visits Dr Pratt", "Bournemouth Strangler", "Morris Hides As He Sees Handcart", "Montage Of Deaths", and "Yes Who Is That".

John Barry/Elizabeth TaylorElizabeth Taylor In London ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Sealed ... $14.99
A weird little record from John Barry – the soundtrack to a 1963 television special recorded by Elizabeth Taylor at the height of her early popularity, and featuring Taylor reciting a variety of poems and speeches over music by Barry! There's a relatively high concept feel to the album – as Barry's backings are fairly string-laden and serious, penned to match the mood of Taylor's presentation of material written by William Wordsworth, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Pitt, Winston Churchill, and Queen Victoria. And although Taylor speaks on about half the record, the best tracks here are actually the instrumental ones – which have more of the depth of Barry's serious soundtrack work from the time, and manage to have their own sense of presence apart from the star quality of Liz on the set. Arrangements are by Johnnie Spence, and titles include "Elizabeth", "London Theme Jazz Waltz", "Queen Elizabeth At Tilbury", "Queen Victoria", "English Garden", "The Fire Of London", "Lovers & Browning", and "London At Dawn".

John Barry/Shirley BasseyMoonraker ... LP
United Artists, 1979. Very Good- ... $4.99
Bond goes into space, but Barry stays on the ground – in one of the lesser-remembered James Bond soundtracks of the 70s! The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound effects you might think. Shirley Bassey sings 2 versions of the "Moonraker" theme – one straight and one disco – and titles include "Bond Smells A Rat", "Bond Lured To Pyramid", "Bond Arrives In Rio", "Flight Into Space", and "Space Lazer Battle".

Hot Milk (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 7 x 7 inch ... $58.99
Rare work from Barry Brown – all material arranged and produced by Linval Thompson – including singles, dubs, and unreleased album tracks! There's a really unified feel to the work, despite the space of a few years – given that the Roots Radics handled backings at the Channel One studio, and Scientist mixed all the tracks at King Tubby's – with a nice dub undercurrent that really helps the rhythms float and dip along with Brown's vocals. Titles include "Please Officer (version)", "Ketch A Fire", "Can't Stop Natty Dread", "Free Dreadlocks", "Life Is So Funny", "Love Jah So", "Love Is Pure", and "You Don't Know Who To Trust (version)". 14 tracks on 7 singles – all packaged in a limited box! 7-inch, Vinyl record

We can remember when this one spooked the heck out of us – and now it remains as a charming period piece from the days when New York was overrun by gangsters dressed up in baseball uniforms or overalls! Includes "Echoes In My Mind" by Mandrill, "Baseball Furies Chase" by Barry De Vorzon, "In Havana" by Kenny Vance & Ismael Miranda, "Nowhere To Run" by Arnol McCuller, and of course the classic "In The City" by Joe Walsh.

Barry GuyFive Fizzles For Samuel Beckett (10 inch LP) ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2015. New Copy ... $22.99
Sublime solo bass from Barry Guy – one of the first musicians to really set the instrument free in improvised music, and still one of the best! The album presents a live performance done in a church in Vilnius in 2009 – and has Guy's incredible sounds echoing out wonderfully throughout – a range of sounds that are very well-captured by the recording quality – from close, careful moments on the surface of the strings – to boldly resonant passages that have a real sense of majesty!

Barry HarrisBarry Harris At The Jazz Workshop (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Riverside (Japan), 1960. Used ... $14.99
Early genius from Barry Harris – a live date recorded at San Francisco's Jazz Workshop, and one that has him gently grooving in a mix of sharp edges and lyricism! In a world where many up and comers were tempted by the fruits of the soul jazz sound, Harris remains nicely true to himself – and plays here with a style that's almost introspective at times, certainly filled with the flowing modes of pianistic expression that would emerge in other players more strongly in years to come. The trio features Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include "Curtain Call", "Lolita", and "Morning Coffee", plus jazz standards like "Woody N You", "Star Eyes", and "Moose The Mooche". CD features 3 bonus tracks! CD

Xanadu, 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Barry Harris stretches out wonderfully in a set of compositions by Tadd Dameron – most of them familiar jazz standards from a few decades before, transformed magically by Harris in a hip 70s piano trio mode! The group here features Gene Taylor on bass and Leroy Williams on drums – both of whom work nicely with Barry's newly discovered sweetness at the time – an approach that's sometimes a bit warmer than his work in the 60s, and which helps make these tunes stand out in newly sensitive readings. Titles include "The Tadd Walk", "Lady Bird", "Casbah", "Our Delight", "Soultrane", "The Chase", and "Hot House". CD

Barry McGuireEve of Destruction ... LP
RCA, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
The LP that followed up Barry's classic pop folk track "Eve Of Destruction". The track still sends a shiver up our spines – probably more because we've seen it used in a million documentaries, than because of any actual power in the song. Still, it's a darn groovy track, and the LP has a number of other nice ones written by P.F. Sloan, including "Mr. Man On The Street (act 1)", "What's Exactly the Matter With Me", and "The Sins Of A Family". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barry WhiteCan't Get Enough ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Can't get enough of Barry White at this key point in his career – a time when he was stepping from the shadows as one of the most sensuous soul stars of the 70s! The album's a near-perfect effort throughout – a great blend of the soaring strings and funkier rhythms that always made Barry's work so great – topped with vocals that are both sung and spoken, all in a voice that's deeper than deep! Tracks intertwine nicely – almost sharing similar themes at points – and although not penned as a "soul symphony", the album certainly comes across like one. Titles include "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Babe", "Oh Love Well We Finally Made It", "Mellow Mood (parts 1 & 2)", "You're The First The Las, My Everything", and "I Can't Believe You Love Me".

Barry White & The Atlantics/Sammy LeeTracy/It Hurts Me ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1963/1966. New Copy ... $8.99
An early 60s groover from Barry White – done when he was a fresh studio talent on the LA scene – but clearly one for a great ear for soul! The tune's got a raw, raspy vibe you wouldn't expect – a tight vamping groove, and some tremendous vocals rolling out over the front! "It Hurts Me" features Sammy Lee in the lead – and the tune has this great party vibe with voices at the start – which Lee then calls back and forth with in the lyrics – which creates a festive, in-crowd sort of groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kenny BarronFlight Path ... CD
Candid (UK), Early 90s. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
Some of the best moments from Kenny Barron's early 90s run on Candid Records – a stretch that really set the stage for the pianist's big return to the limelight in the latter part of the decade – but still retained all the relaxed, easygoing charm of his less-recorded 80s years. Barron's in great company throughout – often groups that are a bit more than a trio – augmented by musicians who include Gary Bartz on alto, Claudio Roditi on trumpet, Steve Hobbs on vibes, and Donald Harrison on alto – and Kenny also plays solo on one track, and in duet with pianist Barry Harris on another. Titles include a great reworking of Blue Mitchell's "Fungii Mama", plus "Pedra Bonita", "Dreams", "Flight Path", "Slow Grind", "So What", "Pent Up House", and "My Old Flame". CD

Tower, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaLa Preda (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Cinevox/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A sweet sexy soundtrack from composers Vince Tempera and Franco Bixio – put together with nice warm orchestrations from Fabio Frizzi! The scene is the mid 70s, and the trio have definitely been listening to a lot of Barry White – particularly White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, whose sound they do a great job of matching on the record – using swirling strings, slow funk rhythm, and their own cool keyboards – which brings in some nice moogy touches to the whole thing – and makes for a really unique album overall! The soundtrack ranks with the best of the best sexy Italian scores from the 70s – and titles include "La Preda", "Daniel's Tune", "Presenza Angosciante", "Ipotesi Di Orizzonte", "Violenza", and "Tranquilla Incoscienza". 15 in all – include a bonus alternate take of the title theme.

John Benson Brooks with Cannonball AdderleyAlabama Concerto ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $6.99
A groundbreaking album – not only for Cannonball Adderley, but for the jazz concerto format, used to strong effect here in this excellent modernist composition by John Benson Brooks! The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy".

Solomon BurkeChess Collection ... CD
Chess (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $8.99
Most people think of Solomon Burke, and they immediately go to his famous Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but it's a little known fact that Burke worked for Chess Records in the mid 70s – at a time when the label was barely still moving forward, and in a mode that's quite different than most of Solomon's other records! The Burke of the 70s first started out even rootsier than in the 60s – but by the time he reached Chess, Solomon picked up a sweet mellow groove and started to recast his image as a sexy large man – one who's very much in the spirit of Barry White! These sides are pulled from the albums Music To Make Love By and Back To My Roots – both records that pick up a warmer, sweeter, more 70s mellow kind of mode – one that often slinks along at a slowish pace, but sometimes grooves things up a bit for the clubs. Burke sings, but also often speaks – in a deeply seductive voice that's totally great – and the CD is a long-overdue look at these surprisingly great sides! Package features 20 tracks in all – including "All The Way", "You & Your Baby Blues", "Music To Make Love By", "Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You", "Burning For Your Love", "Midnight & You", "Thanks I Needed That", "The Do Right Song", "Over & Over", "I'll Never Stop Loving You", "Love's Paradise", "Life Has Its Ups & Downs", and "Precious Flower".

A key album in Chick Corea's shift from Latin jazz to arch-modern – recorded with Circle bandmates Dave Holland on bass and Barry Altschul on drums, and done with a free sound that's quite unusual for Blue Note at the time! Chick's out on this one – way out – in that free mode of his first great rise to fame, without any of the silly Scientology of later years – and Holland and Altschul are in some of their greatest form ever, working with Chick to craft a starkly compelling album of tunes that showed that jazz piano still had a lot of room to grow at the start of the 70s! Titles include "Toy Room", "Ballad I", "Flesh", "Rhymes", and "Nefertitti". CD

Bob CreweComplete Elektra Recordings (Street Talk/Motivation/bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Real Gone, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 26.98
The complete mid 70s comeback years from the great Bob Crewe – the 60s pop powerhouse who found a whole new style in the disco generation! Street Talk has Bob Crewe stretching out in an album-length concept setting – one that draws heavily on the best disco styles of the time, and which tells the tale of a young boy from the Midwest, making the scene on the west coast during the post-Stonewall years. The sound is surprisingly great – not the cheesy throwaway pop disco you'd expect for such a set – and instead this really well-crafted larger orchestral approach to grooving, drawn hevily from Crewe's contemporaneous forays into soul with Kenny Nolan. Bob sings some of the lead vocals himself, and the album also features lyrics from Richard Mirayes, Jon Joyce, and Lu Ann Simms – on titles that include "Cherry Boy", "Back Alley Boogie", "Menage A Trois", "Ah Men", and "Time For You & Me". Next up is the album Motivation. Bob Crewe is a long way from his 60s Four Seasons and Barbarella territory here – but still has all of his best strengths of arranging very firmly in hand! The album is one of Crew's mid 70s disco reinventions – and has the maestro working in a surprisingly strong soul mode, with help from a large choir called the Voices Of Inspiration – who work alongside the lead vocals from John Arrias, singing in a flanged-out style that reminds us of Nick DeCaro's 70s vocal work, but more towards a soul style. Production is by Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett – and some of the album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, with a deeper vibe than you might expect. Titles include "Motivation", "Lady Love Song", "Give It Hell", "In Another Life", and "Merci Beaucoup". 2CD set features 9 more bonus tracks – different single and promo versions of tracks on the albums!

Warm and mellow keyboards from the great Jorge Dalto – an obscure Japanese set from the early 80s, but one that has all the spacious grooves of his US classic from the 70s! Jorge plays a range of acoustic and electric keys here – mostly in a small group setting that features guitar from Barry Finnerty or George Benson – both of whom play with the warm touches that are just right for Dalto's keys. There's a bit of horns on the set – Art Webb on flute on one track, Tom Browne's trumpet on another, and the alto of David Sanborn on two more – and the great Nicky Marrero contributes some Latin percussion to some of the album's best numbers too. Titles include "You're Like An Angel", "It's Magic", "Like A Whisper", "Hotel Du Globe", "My Latin Brother", "Mountain Song", and "Poinciana". CD

Two legendary Italian soundtrack talents serve up a host of familiar themes, their way – music by Henry Mancini, Neal Hefti, Johnny Keating, Riz Ortolani, John Barry, and other film score giants – all given a sweet harmonica twist by Franco De Gemini! De Masi provides these warm instrumental backdrops that have a real 70s Italian film vibe – and Franco makes real magic with his harmonica over the top – in a style that's almost got some Toots Thielemans elements more than his darker music for famous films. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Lady On The Cameo", "Once Is Not Enough", "This Hotel", "Flight Over The Town", and "Flaminian Way". CD

Black Saint (Italy), 1980s. Used 9CD ... $31.99
The complete Black Saint/Soul Note recordings of Bill Dixon – an amazing body of work that represents one of the strongest points in Dixon's career! Bill first burst on the scene with some important 60s avant albums on the Savoy label – including a key collaboration with Archie Shepp – but it wasn't until these 80s sides for the Italian label that his talents really took off – reaching out to new heights that explored some of the more serious themes in his music, often in longer-form conceptual recordings that are a great illustration of the freedoms offered by the label! The records also feature Bill working closely with a host of important musicians – including bassists Alan Silva, Peter Kowald, William Parker, and Barry Guy – and drummers Tony Oxley and Freddie Waits. The set features 9 full albums, each packaged in a mini LP-style sleeve – and titles include Bill Dixon In Italy Vol 1, Bill Dixon In Italy Vol 2, November 1981, Thoughts, Son Of Sisyphus, Vade Mecum, Vade Mecum 2, Papyrus Vol 1, and Papyrus Vol 2.

Gil Evans OrchestraInto The Hot ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
The harder of the two Gil Evans albums on Impulse to find, and the best – really far-reaching material that has Evans coming into contact with some of the hippest jazz players of his generation! The record's got three incredible tracks written by Cecil Taylor – a very bold move for Evans, given Taylor's strongly out reputation even at this point in his career – and possibly even more bold, given that Taylor's on the tracks playing piano, alongside players who include Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Sonny Murray, and Henry Grimes. The material's fantastic, and is a key part of Taylor's work at the time, and shows a very different setting for his piano – a bit of tension with the larger Evans group, in a way that's almost more compelling than his own early dates as a leader! Taylor titles include "Pots", "Bulbs", and "Mixed". The other tracks on the album were written by John Carisi, who wrote the classic "Israel" for Miles Davis' nine piece group in the late 40s – but who here contributes "Moon Taj", "Angkor Wat", and "Barry's Tune". Carisi's tracks are a bit more subdued, but no less wonderful – and arrangements are by Taylor and Carisi, of their own music, presented with the Evans modern touch. If you ever needed a record to convince you that Gil Evans was a genius, this is it! CD

Riverside/Milestone, Mid 40s/1957. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A nice set that brings together Hawk Flies High plus earlier material from 78s! The core record is a key album in the reintroduction of Coleman Hawkins in the late 50s – recorded in a style that still bears a lot of traces of earlier years, but at a time when Hawk was being claimed as a key influence by a variety of younger modernists! The set's got a sense of freedom that's really surprising – especially on the longer numbers, which unfold with some playful instrumental twists that seem to come especially from trumpeter Idrees Sulieman and trombonist JJ Johnson – both of whom are great on the record. Other players include Hank Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Oscar Pettiford on bass – and titles include "Juicy Fruit", "Think Deep", "Blue Lights", "Sanctity", and "Chant". Other material is from 40s 78s – very nicely presented! LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant mid 70s album from Jimmy Heath – recorded at a time when he was making some of his greatest strides on record! The album's got a spare, simple quartet format – but Jimmy's working here in a really expansively soulful sound – one that matches that of Clifford Jordan at the time for sheer expressiveness and imagination. No surprise, the group's a bit Jordan-esque – with Sam Jones on bass and Billy Higgins on drums – alongside Barry Harris, whose piano brings a slightly more lyrical approach to the album. Jimmy's tone on both tenor and soprano sax is fantastic – and titles include "Bruh Slim", "CTA", "All Members", "For Minors Only", and "Picture Of Heath". CD
