Wynonie Harris & Roy BrownBattle Of The Blues Vol 2 ... LP
King, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 9.98
The battle here is almost no contest – given that both singers come out on top! The set's a classic in the Harris/Brown "battle" records for King – and includes a side each of amazing R&B vocal numbers by the singers – some really hard-edged stuff that's really at the top level of the genre at the time! Wynonie Harris is especially great – often as raunchy as soul and funk singers from later years – but Roy Brown is excellent too, and has a voice that really comes across with a great deal of power, with a lot more bite on his King recordings than his work for other labels. Harris numbers include "Man Have I Got Troubles", "I'll Never Give Up", "Drinking Blues", "Tremblin", and "Luscious Woman" – and Brown tracks include "Sweet Peach", "Hard Luck Blues", "Dreaming Blues", and "Wrong Woman Blues".

George KawaguchiDrum Battle ... LP
Toshiba (Japan), 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Drummer George Kawaguchi was one of Japan's strongest straight ahead drummers in the 70s – with a fine talent for traditional swing based grooving, in a mode that was inspired by Gene Krupa and Louis Bellson. This set's got George working as one of 4 drummers – 2 more Japanese (Jimmy Takeuchi and Shingo Okudaira) and 1 American (Donald Bailey) – in a style that's kind of an open jam session, with a focus on the drum solos. The record features 3 long tracks – "Drum Boogie", "Bernie's Tune", and "Jumpin At The Woodside" – with added instrumentation that includes piano and Fender Rhodes by Toshihiko Ogawa, tenor by Konosuke Saijo, and trumpet by Tetsuo Fushimi. LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Krupa & Buddy RichDrum Battle At JATP ... LP
Verve, 1952. Very Good ... $6.99
A pretty darn great album – with a wonderful mix of JATP swing and strong-handed drumming by the leaders. The material was mostly recorded at a Jazz At The Philharmonic show at Carnegie Hall in 1952, and although the main focus appears to be Krupa and Rich's drum work, there's actually some fantastic sax playing on the album – from both the alto of Willie Smith and the tenor of Flip Phillips, both of whom are at the height of their powers in this relaxed setting, working amazingly well around the bombastic drum pounding of Krupa and Rich. Tracks are long, and titles include "Flying Home", "Drum Boogie", "Drum Battle", and "Perdido". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersTrojan Albums Collection 1971 to 1973 (Africa's Blood/Battle Axe/Rhythm Shower/Double Seven) ... CD
Trojan (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A brilliant slice of work from the legendary Lee Scratch Perry – four crucial early 70s albums, brought together in a single 2CD set! All the work here really shows Perry at the cusp – stepping strongly from the soul-influenced sounds of his early years, and working with The Upsetters in a way that would completely revolutionize reggae – even if the approach here is maybe a bit more subtle than later years! Even without Perry's studio fame and influence, the music here is more than enough to win our ears – top-shelf sounds from the Kingston underground, blending vocals and right rhythms in a beautiful way. But as Lee captures the music in the studio, he does something extra-special – putting in slight touches, expanding the edges, and introducing a darkness that Jamaican music didn't have a few short years before. The set features a total of 53 tracks in all – including appearances by Dave Barker, Dillinger, I Roy, Delroy Wilson, and Little Roy – on titles that include "Do Your Thing", "Dream Land", "Tighten Up", "Kentucky Skank", "Jungle Lion", "We Are Neighbours", "Long Sentence", "Battle Axe", "Place Called Africa", "Move Me", "Surplus", "I'm Yours", "Groove Me", "Waap You Waa", and lots lots more.

Jive, 1988. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Collection of 10 tracks from the days when DJ's were an essential part of any hip hop group. The concept here is that all the songs are either about the DJ or feature lots of DJ work. The bonus here is the version of "Eric B is President", a 6 minute mix that uses the vocals from the version on Zakia (not the vocals that appeared later on 4th & Broadway). Other tracks include "Code's Megamix" (a mix of early Schoolly D singles done by his DJ, Code Money), Run-DMC "Jam Master Jammin", Kurtis Blow "AJ Scratch", Cash Money & Marvelous "Ugly People Be Quiet", Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff", Grandmaster Flash "Larry's Dance Theme", Steady B & DJ Tat Money "Rockin Music", Whodini "Now That Whodini's Inside The Joint", Too Short "DJ Universal Mix" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sundazed, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos – all in a way that offers up a brilliant commentary on rock music in the late 60s! The effortlessness with which the group approaches the songs is fantastic – each number could have been a hit for the individual groups, were they real. One of our favorite tracks is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts – which has an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp" – and other titles include "Surfer Dan", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Elenore", "You Showed Me", "Food", and "Chicken Little Was Right".

✨✧ VariousBattle Of Hastings Street – Raw Detroit Blues & R&B From Joe's Record Shop 1949 to 1954 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very rootsy blues from the Motor City scene of the postwar years – work that almost sounds more Delta than Detroit – thanks to the primitive recording setting in the back of Joe's Record Shop! The work here is a really unique representation of blues in a northern setting at the time – and although some of the tunes have styles that might have been at home on Chess Records, most of them are looser and earthier. About half the material was issued on King/DeLuxe Records back in the day, but a good number of titles here are previously unissued too – and as with all Ace releases, there's loads of great notes, photos, and historical information on the music! Titles include "Up Boy" by Johnny Wright, "Vacation Blues" by Johnny Howard, "Soft Pillow" by Joe Weaver & His Blue Notes, "Hello Miss Jessie Lee" by Eddie Burns, "Eva Lee" by James Walton, "Time For My Lovin To Be Done" by Eddie Kirkland, "New York Central" by Robert Richard, "I Was In St Louis" by Johnny Wright, and "Wigwam Woman" by Robert Richard.

Mongo SantamariaMongo At The Village Gate ... LP
Battle/Riverside, 1963. Very Good ... $11.99
A raw early cooker from Mongo Santamaria – a real standout album from the Riverside years, thanks to a live performance that goes far beyond his studio work of the time! The set was caught live at the Village Gate – in a way that lets the band open up and really jam on the tunes – an especially great thing, given that players include Pat Patrick, Marty Sheller, and Bobby Capers on horns, all of whom bring a lot of fire to the session. Mongo's great on congas, as you might expect – and the album's even got a cool little introduction of the group by Symphony Sid! Tracks include "Mongo's Groove", "The Jungle Bit", "Fatback", and "Nothing For Nothing", a nice long track written by Patrick! LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label Riverside pressing.)

Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man! ... LP
Battle, 1962. Very Good- ... $14.99
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged Latin jazz version that pushed the tune into a whole new audience, and which was one of the first big groovers of its type in the pre-Latin Soul years! The group here is totally great – with players that include funky flautist Mauricio Smith, baritone genius Pat Patrick, and the always-great Bobby Capers – all key players who illustrate Santamaria's genius for picking horn players. Titles include "Watermelon Man", "Yeh Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It", "Sauvito", "Cut That Cane", and "Bayou Roots". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Battle pressing. Cover has some wear with aged tape along the seams.)

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man/Don't Bother Me No More ... 7-inch
Battle, Early 60s. Good+ ... $3.99
A piece of history! Mongo's original recording of "Watermelon Man" – cut barely after Herbie Hancock wrote the tune, and done in a funky Latinized way that instantly made the cut as important for Mongo as it was for Herbie. In fact, we really have to say that we like this version better – as it's got some hard-hitting rhythms, edgey horns, and a few great shouted vocal bits! "Don't Bother Me" is a great number too – kind of a prototype for the Latin soul sound of the late 60s – short, hard, and very choppy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mongo SantamariaYeh Yeh/Get The Money ... 7-inch
Battle, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Early work from Mongo – short, choppy, and very firey! "Yeh Yeh" is a version of the popular early 60s hit (best known from Georgie Fame's version) – done here in a choppy post-cha style, with some nice vocalization bits. The vocal refrains get even nicer on "Get The Money" – a tightly snapping groover that has some weird laughs and cries in the tune, making for a very cool and spooky feel! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Black label pressing with silver ring in the center.)

Gene Ammons/Tom Archia/Johnny GriffinChicago's Boss Tenors – 1948-1956 Vintage Recordings ... LP
Chess, Late 40s/Mid 70s. Very Good ... $5.99
A great set that brings together some great lost material that was originally recorded for Chess (or Aristocrat as it was called back then), and which was only ever released on 78s. Gene Ammons plays here with the lost Chicago tenor talent Tom Archia (who never made it out of the city as much as the other big Chitown tenor names), and the two fo them groove nicely on tracks like "Swingin For Xmas", "Stuffy", "Minor Blues", and "The Battle". Johnny Griffin also checks in with tracks like "Riff Raff" and "Bees Ees" – and the record also includes performances by the city's great Claude McLin on "Swivel Hips" and "Bennie's Bounce". Nice notes on the sides and the scene, too, by the city's great promoter, Joe Segal. LP, Vinyl record album

Blood Sweat & Tears3 ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

Arthur BlytheDa Da/Basic Blythe ... CD
Columbia/Beat Goes On (UK), 1986/1988. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A pair of 80s albums from saxophonist Arthur Blythe – back to back in a single set! Da Da is a set that mixes some of the sharper edges of Blythe's earlier records with a few more contemporary touches – but always at a level that still has the reedman standing far from the mainstream! The core group here features Olu Dara on trumpet, Cecil McBee on bass, John Hicks on piano, and Bobby Battle on drums – and on the acoustic tracks, there's some great energy between them that soars with a soulful spirit birthed in the loft jazz years, maybe swung a bit straighter than before. A few other tunes add in some extra elements – an electric bass on one number, some light strings on another – but the core of the album still has a magnificent focus on that tone that Blythe had only perfected even more on records like this, especially on the more laidback numbers, which come as a real surprise, and reflect a ballad style we might not have guessed in the early days. Titles include "Odessa", "Esquinas", "After Paris", "Crescent", and "Break Time". Next up is Basic Blythe – not exactly basic work from Arthur Blythe, as the set features an added string ensemble too – but a record that certainly has the saxophonist really hitting a whole new level of genius! There's a great core group here – with John Hicks on piano, Anthony Cox on bass, and Bobby Battle on drums – and the strings are added in around the edges, never getting to much in the way of the combo energy, but also fleshing out the sound with this beautiful richness that only seems to enhance the sharp tone of Arthur's alto sax! The arrangements are great, too – hardly the usual "with strings" material, and instead very creative – with this mix of soul and sophistication that reminds us a bit of the Bill Lee scores for early Spike Lee films, but even longer and with the key addition of Blythe in the lead. Titles include "Lenox Avenue Breakdown", "Faceless Woman", "Ruby My Dear", "Heart To Heart", and "As Of Yet". CD

Duke Ellington & Count BasieFirst Time – The Count Meets The Duke ... CD
Columbia, 1962. Used ... $1.99
Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". CD

Matthew Herbert Big BandGoodbye Swingtime (Accidental pressing) ... CD
Accidental (UK), 2003. Used ... $4.99
One of the most exciting albums we've heard in a long time – and one of the few modern records to capture the excitement of the late 60s big band crossover scene! The Matthew Herbert group's clearly inspired here by older experiments on MPS and other European labels – and they work in a style that builds from older big band modes, by adding in lots of funky touches, soulful vocals, and complicated rhythms – all the while still managing to groove mightily, but also using the full range of sounds, tones, and colors of the group to create something truly amazing! The album's got some really wonderful tunes, and stays fresh throughout the whole double-length set – thanks to a range of vocals by singers that include Jamie Lidell, Dani Siciliano, Arto Lindsay, Shinghai Shoniwa, and others. Really fresh – and really unique – with tracks that include "Stationary", "The Battle", "Misprints", "Fiction", "Everything's Changed", "Chromoshop", "The Three W's", and "Turning Pages". CD

Atlantic, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There's a darkness here – and a sense of magick too – an eerie new energy that still has all the balls-out rock power of before, but which has the group moving into this heady territory that's really all their own. Every song is a classic – and tracks include "Black Dog", "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "When The Levee Breaks", "Going To California", "Four Sticks", and "Battle Of Evermore".

MC LyteLyte As A Rock ... LP
First Priority/Atlantic, 1988. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Lyte raised the bar for female rappers on this late 80s album with her mic skills and lyrical finesse that took female MC's into a whole new realm, beyond "Roxanne" answer tracks. She takes on Roxanne Shante on "10% Dis", a classic battle track that sparked a great answer cycle in its own right. And the production, mostly by Audio Two is pure minimalist hip hop beatmaking, while the King Of Chill comes correct with the dopest side stick in the history of programmed beats on "Paper Thin", and Prince Paul goes nuts with the horn stabs on one of his earlier beats, "MC Lyte Likes Swingin'". 10 tracks in all, this LP also includes "I Cram To Understand You", "Kickin 4 Brooklyn", "Lyte As A Rock", "Lyte Thee MC", "I Am Woman", "Lyte Vs.

Head to head blowing from Sonny Sitt and Paul Gonsalves – just the kind of twin-horn performance that Stitt was famous for in his live battle days, and one that also reminds us that Gonsalves can be a very loose swinger when he wants to be! The tracks are all long, and played with the sort of feel you'd hear if you caught these guys live at some small southside club – and the solos also show the kind of inventiveness and imagination you'd catch in that sort of setting – backed by a swinging rhythm combo that features Hank Jones on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include "Salt & Pepper" in two parts, "Theme From Lord Of The Flies", and "S'posin". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gino VannelliGist Of The Gemini ... LP
A&M, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $0.99
His hair's getting longer and his music a bit more flowing and dramatic – but Gino Vannelli's still going strong here, really opening up in the shine of his own mid 70s pop brilliance! The record's slightly more ambitious than some of Vannelli's earlier efforts – especially on side two's extended "War Suite" – but the overall charm of his music is still very firmly in place, and cast here with a focused, professional groove that's heavy on keyboards, vamping in a tight AM pop way, and produced with that cool flanged-out style on vocals that made so much 70s pop so great! Titles include "Love Of My Life", "Ugly Man", "A New Fix For 76", "Fly Into This Night", "Prelude To The War", "Battle Cry", "Summers Of My Life", and "After The Last Battle". LP, Vinyl record album

Jalopy, Late 30s/Early 40s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A beautiful excavation of the Library of Congress recordings – one that pulls together a great range of depression-era songs that really capture the changing culture and continuing struggles of the time! There's a range of different styles at play here, but the overall focus is on acoustic music – with strong folk and string-based instrumentation on most numbers – and especially strong, charismatic singers who can really burst out, even though the recording conditions weren't always optimal! Most artists are very obscure – recorded in the field by Alan and John Lomax, and other members of their team – and titles include "The Moonshiner" by Dawson Henson, "Longest Train I Ever Saw" by Jesse Wadley, "WPA Song" by Clyde Kingfish Smith, "Battle In The Horseshoe" by JW Russell, "Travelin To That New Buryin Ground" by Hammer Clarence Banks, and "Roosevelt & Hitler" by Buster Buzz Ezell.

A classic package of 70s grooves – despite a cloying title and cover image! The set recalls the glory days of the legendary Superbad and Superbad Is Back compilations – and brings together a rich assortment of 70s funky soul that spans the gamut from hit movie themes, classic radio tracks, and other under-discovered gems that have since gone onto become classics through their use in hip hop samples! 3CD set is overflowing with great stuff – 53 titles that include "Bring Down The Birds" by Herbie Hancock, "Bullitt" by Lalo Schifrin, "Harlem Clavinette" by JJ Johnson, "Little Ghetto Boy" by Donny Hathaway, "Be Thankful For What You Got" by William De Vaughn, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Gotcha" by Tom Scott, "The Final Comedown" by Grant Green, "Are You Man Enough" by The Four Tops, "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, "Inside My Love" by Minnie Riperton, "The Boss" by James Brown, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "Flying Machine" by War, "The Ghetto" by Donny Hathaway, "Natural High" by Bloodstone, "The Big Battle" by Lalo Schifrin, "Love TKO" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Wiggle Waggle" by Herbie Hancock, "Nowhere To Run" by Martha Reeves, "Think" by Aretha Franklin, and "Junkyard" by War.

✨✧ Arthur BlytheElaborations/Light Blue/Put Sunshine In It ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of 80s albums from saxophonist Arthur Blythe – brought together in a 2CD set! First up is Elaborations – a beautiful moment in which the loft jazz generation really got a chance to shine in the mainstream – and mostly without any sense of overdone attempts at commercialization! The album's a great summation of all the ideas that reedman Arthur Blythe was cooking up in the 70s underground – performed here with a hip group that includes Blythe on alto, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Abdul Wadud on cello, Bobby Battle on drums, Bob Stewart on tuba, Wilbur Morris on bass, and Mohammad Abdullah on congas – some of them players who you might never have expected to be recording for Columbia Records! And yet the setting of the record doesn't interfere with their creativity at all – and instead, really seems to give Blythe and the group the sort of focus that only makes their ideas even better – on titles that include "Elaborations", "Metamorphosis", "Sister Daisy", "Shadows", and "The Lower Nile". Light Blue is a wonderful record from saxophonist Arthur Blythe – a set that features his group working through a number of tunes by Thelonious Monk – but with very different arrangements and instrumentation that change things up completely! The set came at a time when Monk was receiving a lot of new attention in the world of jazz, and at a time when Arthur's star had risen too – and the meeting of forces is wonderful – as Blythe brings all sorts of new rhythms and tonal combinations to play with familiar tunes that really transform in the process. The group is a familiar one for Blythe – and features Abdul Wadud on cello, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Bobby Battle on drums! And while you might scratch your head at the tuba, the instrument is often used in ways that might follow older bassline styles – but with a quality that bridges the alto and cello in a great way. Titles include "Nutty", "Coming On The Hudson", "Light Blue", "Epistrophy", and "We See". Put Sunshine In It is a record that really seems to live up to its title – as the sound here is maybe a little bit sunnier than on some of Arthur Blythe's previous albums! The record features heavy contributions from Todd Cochran – aka Bayete – who plays keyboards on most numbers, and introduces more of an electric vibe to the album than previous Blythe outings. The style isn't entirely fusion, but it's definitely warm and sunny – and Arthur responds as such with his solo work – a tight tighter and less edgey, but still nicely soulful. The album features a nice remake of the tune "Sentimental Walk" – from the movie Diva – plus the tracks "Uptown Strut", "Silhouette", "Put Sunshine In It", and "Tumalalumah". CD

✨✧ Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin IV (deluxe 2LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There's a darkness here – and a sense of magick too – an eerie new energy that still has all the balls-out rock power of before, but which has the group moving into this heady territory that's really all their own. Every song is a classic – and tracks include "Black Dog", "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "When The Levee Breaks", "Going To California", "Four Sticks", and "Battle Of Evermore". Very cool 2LP set features rare mixes of tracks from the sessions – including "Going To California (mandolin/guitar mix)", "Rock & Roll (alt mix)", "Black Dog (basic track with guitar overdubs)", "Misty Mountain Hop (alt mix)", "Stairway To Heaven (Sunset Sound mix)", and "The Battle Of Evermore (mandolin/guitar mix from Headly Grange)".

Qwest, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The impossible to get debut from the only noteworthy member of the Hobo Junction crew, Saafir. The Saucy Nomad drops sideways abstractions and in-your-face battle rhymes over beats that often remind us of the Beatnuts around the same time, hard but with a jazzy feel from the horn stabs and floating piano lines. One of the class of '94's finest moments, in many ways we think one of the best times in the history of hip hop (think about how many dope LPs were dropped in the mid 90s). Loads of West Coast/Bay Area underground classics like "Battle Drill", "Light Sleeper", "Just Riden", "Bent", "No Return (Goin Crazy)", "Hype Sh*t" and a handful of hilarious foul-mouthed interludes.

Warner/Rhino, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur BlytheLenox Avenue Breakdown/In The Tradition/Illusions/Blythe Spirit ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Four great albums from reedman Arthur Blythe – all together in one collection! First up is Lenox Avenue Breakdown – a stunning Columbia Records debut from Blythe! At the time of the date, Blythe had already spent years working in the jazz undergrounds on both coasts – developing a searing sound on alto sax that's perfect for the focused structure of this album – almost a tone poem of sorts, offering up a portrait of the Harlem scene that was a key part of Arthur's life at the time. The sounds are sharp, but also have a sense of energy that really holds them together – guiding the players through long readings of well-penned tunes by Blythe that are filled with loads of energy and life! Players include James Newton on flute, James Blood Ulmer on guitar, Bob Stewart on tuba, Cecil McBee on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Guillermo Franco on percussion – and titles include "Odessa", "Slidin Through", "Down San Diego Way", and "Lenox Avenue Breakdown". In The Tradition is a gem – as the set represents the modern musician taking on a host of older jazz currents, while carving things out with his own special sort of soul! Half the tunes are familiar favorites, the other half originals – and Blythe moves far past his avant roots, to showcase his deep understanding of so many different shades of jazz – blowing alto beautifully throughout, in a very hip quartet that features Stanley Cowell on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on drums! Titles include great takes on "Naima", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Caravan", and "In A Sentimental Mood" – plus the originals "Break Tune" and "Hip Dipper". Illusions is maybe the boldest of Arthur Blythe's albums for Columbia Records – as the set bristles with newly creative energy right from the start, and provides a great showcase for some of the criss-crossings of styles and rhythms that were taking place on the New York scene at the time! The lineup alone announces something special – a cool combination of James Blood Ulmer on guitar, John Hicks on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, Abdul Wadud on cello, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Steve McCall on drums – working together in some slight variations at times, often with these angular edges that are perfectly sharpened by Arthur's amazing work on alto sax. The music's never too free, but quite outside for a major label at the time – balanced out so that it's never overindulgent at all. Titles include "Bush Baby", "Miss Nancy", "My Son Ra", and "Carespin With Mamie". Blythe Spirit is a set that showcases the never-ending growth and imagination of reedman Arthur Blythe during this fruitful period of his career – and his ability to effortlessly blend together different elements in his music – especially sides of the New York loft jazz scene, and the Chicago-based AACM! The tunes are beautiful – mostly originals, and showing a richer spirituality than even a year before – while still working in that compellingly rhythmic mode that Arthur was hitting during these years – in a lineup that features Blythe on alto, Abdul Wadud on cello, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Steve McCall and Bobby Battle on drums, John Hicks on piano, Amina Claudine Myers on organ, and Fred Hopkins on bass. The mix of electric and acoustic elements is fantastic – very fresh, even all these many years later – and titles include "Misty", "Spirits In The Field", "Just A Closer Walk With Thee", "Reverence", and "Contemplation".

One of the less-remembered records from the era of the giant rock festival – a set of tracks that were recorded during a wild cross-country hippie caravan! Although maybe not another Woodstock, the album does have some long live tracks that are really worth seeking out – in a relatively surprising blend of musicians that makes for a pretty interesting record overall! Highlights include a searing eight minute take on "Black Juju" by Alice Cooper, a ten minute medley of "How Blue Can You Get/Just A Little Love" by BB King, a twelve minute "Freakout/It Takes A Lot To Laugh" by Stoneground, a version of "Free The People" by Delaney & Bonnie, one of the rawest Doug Kershaw performances we've ever heard on "Louisiana Man/Battle Of New Orleans/Orange Blossom Special", Sal Valentino singing "Dreambo", and the Youngbloods tracks "Hippie From Olema" and "Act Naturally", both nicely tongue in cheek.

✨✧ Jazz Couriers (Ronnie Scott & Tubby Hayes)Jazz Couriers Live In Morecambe 1959 – Tippin' ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Primo work by one of the greatest Brit jazz groups of the 50s – the legendary Jazz Couriers, and their smoking frontline of Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott on tenor sax! The pair have a way of coming together that's simply beautiful – not the kind of "battle" you might have gotten from American tenorists a few years before – and instead, a way of collaborating on long-spun, beautifully-blown tracks that really expand under the two voices of the tenors – in ways that other hardbop groups might with just a sax and trumpet. Part of the group's success is their great rhythm section too – Terry Shannon on piano, Jeff Clyne on bass, and Billy Eyden on drums – a trio who really kick things into gear wonderfully on this previously-unissued live date! The material was recorded at a restaurant gig – nice and intimate, but with very good sound – so much so that the record is very much on a par with the group's famous studio sides of the time. Tubby Hayes also plays a bit of vibes on the record – and titles include "For All We Know", "Embers", "Tippin", and "Cherokee/The Theme". CD

An insane amount of rare material from legendary bassist Oscar Pettiford – not only one of the most forward-thinking musicians on his instrument during the postwar years, but also an extremely inventive leader, who found ways of merging bop modernism with a large group format! The recordings here are all well-recorded, originally done for radio in New York – and the 2CD set features a whopping 48 tracks in all, from seven different performances by Pettiford, mostly at Birdland – with an incredible lineup of players throughout, musicians who include Donald Byrd, Johnny Coles, and Art Farmer on trumpets; Jimmy Cleveland and Eddie Bert on trombones; Sahib Shihab on alto and baritone; Gigi Gryce and Gene Quill on alto; Hank Jones, Dick Katz, and Hod O'Brien on piano; and Jerome Richardson and JR Monterose on tenor. The arrangements are wonderful – by Pettiford, Lucky Thompson, Gigi Gryce, and Benny Golson – and the set features performances by a nonet, sextet, and larger band. Some songs are performed a few different times, by different lineups – and titles include Kamman's A Comin", "Smoke Signal", "Two French Fries", "The Gentle Art Of Love", "I Remember Clifford", "Jack The Bear", "Battle Axe", "Stablemates", "45 Degree Angle", and "The Pendulum At Falcon's Lair".

The Platters might have been the kings of the late night ballad, thanks to the magical voice of Tony Williams – but they could also kick it up a few notches at the right time too, and match the energy of their more romping 50s R&B contemporaries! This set brings together 30 tracks that focus on this more upbeat side of The Platters' music – a great contrast to some of the mellower, sleepier tunes that some folks normally associate with the group – and a great showcase for their more dynamic range, especially when female member Zola Taylor gets to take a few leads! As usual with Bear Family, the package is as great as the music – with a big 32 page booklet of notes, and titles include "Bark Battle & Ball", "Don't Let Go", "In The Middle Of Nowhere", "Movin In", "Out Of My Mind", "Advertise It", "I Wanna", "Hula Hop", "He's Mine", "Lie Low", "Winner Take All", "My Heart Belongs To Daddy", and "I Don't Know Why".

The groove here runs from swing to bop, and often includes a bit of both – and some tracks feature Scott as the main soloist with larger ensembles, such as the group of Ted Heath, while others feature him in a more familiar small group bop setting. 2CD package features a whopping 38 tracks in all – and titles include "Buzzy" by Jazz At Town Hall Ensemble, "Ad Lib Frolic" by Ted Heath, "Scrubber Time" by Jack Parnell & His Quartet, "Galaxy" by Alan Dean's Beboppers, "Too Marvelous For Words" by Ronnie Scott Quartet, "Brand's Essence" by 1951 Melody Maker All-Stars, "Battle Royale" by Ronnie Scott & Kenny Graham, "The Champ" by Arnold Ross Sextet, "Seven Eleven" by Ronnie Scott Quintet, "Compos Mentos" by Ronnie Scott Orchestra, and "Pantagrulian" by Ronnie Scott Jazz Group.

Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy 4CD ... $112.99 129.99
A totally wonderful package – and one that will have you throwing away all the Vietnam Rock compilations you have in your collection! This set unearths a massive amount of music that was created during the Korean war – filled with themes of sadness and loss that most folks wouldn't ascribe to wartime music until a decade later – the kinds of songs that represent a really sharp change from the patriotic, triumphant songs that were usually written in previous wartime situations. The variety of music is wonderful, and served up in the best Bear Family tradition – with a surprisingly strong amount of rare blues material, mixed with hillbilly cuts, gospel, R&B material, and other styles too – almost all of it nicely away from the mainstream! The overall package is wonderful, too – a heavy, oversized hardcover book – 160 pages that offer up track-by-track notes on the music, with full color photos, label scans, and lots more vivid images. The book alone is almost worth the price – but you also get 4CDs, with 121 tracks by artists who include Dave Bartholomew, Lightnin Hopkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, The Revelers, Jimmie Osborne, Arthur Crudup, Ray Snead, Edna McGriff, Hank Penny, Jean Shepard, Emmit Slay, Sherman Blues Johnson & His Clouds Of Joy, Billy Mize, Elton Britt, Steve Rogers, Oscar Brand, JB Lenoir, Delmore Brothers, Ernest Tubb, The Gospel Pilgrims, Fats Domino, Max Bailey, BB King, and many more!

Beastie BoysHot Sauce Committee Part 2 ... LP
Grand Royal/Capitol, 2011. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 34.98
Hip hop lifers and genre-defiant pop art blenders The Beastie Boys deliver the Hot Sauce – either their 8th or 9th album in 25 years, depending on how you count the Mix Up instrumentals set – a return to the good times hip hop funk style-hopping that the Boys flaunted so brilliantly in the period from Check Your Head to Hello Nasty! Hot Sauce was initially solicited as Part 1 to be followed by a Part 2, but the album was put on hold while Yauch battled cancer, which gave the Beasties plenty of time to finesse the material and release it as the definitive project we have here. It's solid stuff and a Beastie Boys album through-and-through – and they're as immune to trends as ever. Guests include Nas, Santigold and Switch. Tracks include "Make Some Noise", "Nonstop Disco Powerpack", "Too Many Rappers (New Reactionaries Version)" with Nas, "Lee Majors Comes Again", "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" feat Santigold, "Tadlock's Glasses", "The Lisa Lisa/Full Force Routine", "Here's A Little Something For Ya" and more.

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisStreetlights (I Only Have Eyes For You/Trackin') ... CD
Prestige, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two killers from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – both records that are different from his Cookbook sessions with Shirley Scott, and his twin-tenor battles with Johnny Griffin! First up is I Only Have Eyes For You – easily one of our favorite Eddie Lockjaw Davis albums! The record's a lot livelier than most – and it's recorded with the little-known Paul Weeden trio, who featured a young Don Patterson on organ. Weeden's a pretty good guitarist himself, and the whole session has a nice groovy groovy feel. Titles include "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Street Lights", and "The Way You Look Tonight" – and all tracks are taken at a good clip, with a strong club sound to them. Next is Trackin – a tight little soul jazz cooker from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – done with a sound that's leaner and cleaner than some of his Cookbook sessions – thanks to great Hammond from Don Patterson, working here in the trio of guitarist Paul Weeden! The combo's totally great – nicely focused, and hitting that more mature soul jazz swing that started to really come into play during the mid 60s – that stripping down of the organ stops, focused bite on tenor, and tight comping of guitar – all of which the combo carry off wonderfully – with help from George Duvivier on bass and Billy James on drums. There's a nice long cut with a laidback groove called "Beano", and a number of other shorter standards given the tenor/organ treatment – including "What's New", "Day By Day", and "Robbin's Nest". CD
