Wendell Harrison & Eddie HarrisBattle Of The Tenors – Live At The 1994 Montreux–Detroit Jazz Festival ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1994. Used ... $3.99
A legendary meeting of two famous tenor talents – the mighty Eddie Harris, and Detroit legend Wendell Harrison – recorded live together at the Montreux Detroit Festival in 1994. The pair play together in a variety of modes – from twin tenor solo battle styles, to mellower, more open and spacious ones – showing Harris to be still extremely inventive at this later point in his life. Eddie even vocalizes a bit, as he did on some of his 70s records – and the rest of the group features drums, electric guitar, and electric bass – which makes for some funkier moments at times. Titles include "Vocalese", "My Shining Hour", "The Wok", "Tenor Madness", and "Ampedextrious". CD

Hakon KornstadTenor Battle ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
The title's a bit misleading – as the record's hardly the sort of tenor battle you might have heard from Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon back in the day – and instead, the title's a bit of a pun, in that Hakon Kornstad plays both tenor sax, and sings in a tenor voice too! The record opens up in this really magical flow that begins with the saxophone sound of Hakon Kornstad, and blends in sublime sounds on instruments that include harmonium, cimbalon, harpsichord, and percussion – plus some excellent work from bassist Per Zanussi, who really grounds the whole thing. The record's easily one of the most compelling we've heard from Kornstad so far – that's saying a lot, given the strength of his other albums – and Hakon's got this new level of sensitivity that really comes through in the way he approaches his sound – not just his core performance on tenor, but also his use of a bit of flute, and process of looping live with the instrumentation too. Many of the compositions are from operatic sources – part of Kornstad's growing fascination with the format – and Hakon also sings a bit, in this stunning tenor voice that's really wonderful – completely captivating, especially amongst this instrumentation – and never forced or hokey at all. We'd hardly believe that such blend could come off so well – but it does, and with uniquely beautiful results – on titles that include "Je Crois Entendre Encore", "Song Of India", "En Fermant Les Yeux", "Morgen", and "Marechiare".

Ennio Morricone & Gillo PontecorvoBattle Of Algiers ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A relatively dramatic score from Ennio Morricone– as you might guess from the military title! Some of the tunes here have a very strong military feel, but others move into surprisingly sweeter territory – that more mainstream side of Morricone's sound, but still pretty great – with full strings swelling up in lush sounds that are very compelling. There's also some subtly spooky sounds on a few of the numbers – the odd instrumental moments that Morricone could sneak in nicely on a score like this – conducted perfectly by orchestra director Bruno Nicolai. Titles include "Theme Of Ali", "Tortures", "Clandestine Marriage", "Battle Of Algiers March", "Sorrow In The Casbah", and "Algiers November 1 1954". LP, Vinyl record album

John SwensonNew Atlantis – Musicians Battle For The Survival Of New Orleans (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $2.99 27.95
The New Orleans music scene has certainly found a way to thrive and survive in the wake of Katrina – but it hasn't been without years of struggle, as author John Swenson portrays in this deeply-written book! The struggles aren't just water or storm-related – as Swenson details the shifting Crescent City landscape of the past decade or so – the larger shifts in the social and tourist scene, and the more subtle ones that continue to threaten the city – including long-ignored ecological issues that could put New Orleans in the same place as before. Chapters are relatively short, but in a good way that really draws focus on individual artists and aspects of the scene – and the hardcover book is 284 pages, with some black and white images. Book

TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands ... LP
White Whale, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $3.99
A totally excellent album by The Turtles! We always loved this group in their normal mode, but this is a super-cool record that's 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. The big cut on here is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts, and with 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"! LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... $11.99 18.99
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.

Idelsohn Society, 1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A musical package that really gets at the cultural tension of the twelfth month of the year – the "battle between Christmas and the festival of lights", to quote the title – served up here in a double-length collection of unusual seasonal songs! CD one features unusual Hanukkah numbers, mostly from the 20th century – including some very traditional tunes and great tongue in cheek remakes – most of which we've never heard before. CD two is even cooler, though – a whole set of Christmas tunes, but played by Jewish artists – illustrating the cultural challenges that come from working in the mainstream during the Holidays! The mix of tunes is pretty great – from rock numbers to vocal jazz, folk, and a bit of easy listening – some familiar, some obscure – and again a pretty great set of tracks! The package also comes with an oversize book that details the songs and features some key writings on the "battle" – and the 2CD set features 34 tracks that include "Little Drummer Boy" by Bob Dylan, "Grandma's Dreidel" by Mickey Katz, "Hanukah Tree" by the Klezmatics, "Twelve Days Of Christmas" by Dinah Shore, "Holiday ID" by Lou Reed, "El Dia De La Navidad" by Larry Harlow, "Santa Claus Came In The Spring" by Benny Goodman, "It's Christmas All Over The World" by Sammy Davis Jr, "I Got A Cold For Christmas" by The Ames Brothers, "A Chanukah Quiz" by Gladys Gewirtz, "Hanukkah Dance" by Woody Guthrie, "Twas The Night Before Chanukah" by Stanley Adams & Sid Wayne, "The Latke Song" by Debbie Friedman, "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" by Richard Tucker, and "The Problem" by Ray Brenner & Barry Blitzer.

Prestige, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
This is the kind of battle we like to see! Three heavy tenors – Nelson, King, and Jimmy Forrest – come head to head in a relaxed set of tunes cut in that Prestige blowing session mode, but tweaked with a bit more tightness, in the style of some of the label's emerging soul jazz sides of the 60s. Nelson's gutsy tenor will shock you if you haven't heard him in this sort of less restrained setting – and Forrest's work from this time is always a treat. Titles include "Blues For MF", "Anacruses", "Perdido", and "In Passing". Includes the bonus track "Soul Street". CD

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man/Don't Bother Me No More ... 7-inch
Battle, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
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

Not officially the follow up to Bad Dreams – but certainly what you'd expect from the Candian Battlers after that record.

But even more heavy on those strong hooks and choruses that get them all that popularity in Maple Leaf land. Other cuts and production by Paul Nice, DJ Babu, Saukrates, Kemo, DJ Vadim, and others. Tracks include Steppin' Thru", "Breath", "Fuel Injected (remix)", "Members Only", "Temptation" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur BlytheLenox Avenue Breakdown/In The Tradition/Illusions/Blythe Spirit ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ Dave Burrell/Steve SwellTurning Point ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the greatest recordings we've heard from pianist Dave Burrell in recent years – a series of stunning duets with trombonist Steve Swell! Like some of Burrell's wonderful work from decades back, the style is loose and somewhat free, but also has a sense of rhythm and forward-moving action – some vague modal impulse that has Dave spinning out these waves of pianistic sound that are instantly compelling – while Swell blows over the top in styles that range from tuneful and melodic, to much more free and bracing. All titles are Burrell originals, and tracks include "Fancy Trade Nightmare", "Battle At Vicksburg", "Battle At Gettysburg", "Church Picnic Celebration", and "One Nation". CD

Billy ButlerRight Tracks – The Complete Okeh Recordings 1963 to 1966 ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The complete Okeh label recordings of Billy Butler – Jerry Butler's lesser-known brother, but an even more grooving artist on the Chicago soul scene of the 60s! Billy's work at Okeh is easily some of the best of the all-great imprint – tracks that step, slide, and groove along in a flurry of tight-edged Chi-soul rhythms – nearly all of which are produced by the legendary Carl Davis, with arrangements from Johnny Pate and Riley Hampton! Billy's in the lead on vocals, but nearly all numbers have a strong harmony soul component too – support from The Four Enchanters or Chanters – in a mode that echoes The Impressions' style of the time somewhat, but which also carries more of the Butler-family emotive quality, thanks to the stronger lead. This is the first time all this material has ever been brought together so well – and the package features great notes and a number of previously unissued titles as well – including some rare versions and instrumentals that are sure to get some play from Northern Soul listeners. Titles include "Found True Love", "Lady Love", "Gotta Get Away", "Can't Live Without Her", "Right Track", "Boston Monkey", "Does It Matter", "Fighting A Losing Battle", "To Be Or Not To Be", "Singing The Blues", and "You're Gonna Be Sorry".

Floyd CramerSuper Country Hits/Young & The Restless ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of piano instrumental albums from Nashville's legendary Floyd Cramer! First up is Super Country Hits – a set that has Floyd tippling the ivories through 70s instrumental updates of older country hits – done with a sweet RCA studio vibe, and that floating, suspended style of recording that always made Cramer's piano sound so great! Titles include "Is Anybody Goin To San Antoine", "Detroit City", "Battle Of New Orleans", "Lonely Street", "Sugarfoot Rag", and "It's A Sin". The Young & The Restless is an album that's perfect for the piano style of Floyd Cramer – a set that's maybe more 70s easy instrumental than some of his previous albums – but in a mighty nice way! Floyd's piano has this haunting, spacious quality on the title cut – a perfect choice for his talents – and other cuts have the pianist working on both acoustic and Fender Rhodes, on titles that include "Behind Close Doors", "Top Of The World", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Rockin On", "Theme From A Dream", and "The Young & The Restless".

Orrin Evans#Knowingishalfthebattle ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
The first track here almost made us think we had the wrong record in the sound system – as it's a creative electronic piece that introduces the straighter jazz numbers – but that sonic surprise is just another great reminder of the ever-growing range of expression we've come to experience from pianist Orrin Evans! Evans has always been great, but in recent years he really seems to have expanded his musical idiom – and here, he's working with an unusual group that features two guitarists – Kurt Rosenwinkel and Kevin Eubanks – who don't play on every track, or together at once, but who create these chromatic elements that are beautiful alongside Orrin's more angular piano lines! The core trio has Evans on both acoustic and Fender Rhodes, with Luques Curtis on bass and Mark Whitfield on drums – and as the tracks move on, they draw contributions from both guitarists, plus saxophonist Caleb Curtis, and singer M'Balia – whose performances include a fantastic version of the David Bowie tune "Kooks", and "That's All". Other tracks include "Calls", "When Jen Came In", "Chiara", "You Don't Need A License To Drive", "Half The Battle", and "Doc's Holiday". CD

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".

The history of women's rights in the 20th Century – presented here in a beautiful art book format that's filled with hundreds of stunning images throughout!

German Greer provides the introduction, but author Liz McQuiston's the real star of the show here – doing a mindblowing job of representing the ongoing battle for political freedoms and equality, and showcasing a range of feminist heroes we never would have discovered otherwise.

Probably the most hyped hip hop album by rock critics of the last decade – but don't hold that against Stankonia, because these ghetto grooves from planet P-Funk were exactly what the world needed in 2000! The millenium blowout party jam feel throughout is surely a nice change of pace from all the doom and gloom out there, but they still manage to spit out enough reality to keep things feeling true – particularly in the playful battle of the sexes showdowns.

Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Used ... $4.99
Bold sounds from this hip quartet of American players – working here on an early session for the Black Saint label, in a recording that's got a really great sense of focus! The album's dominated by the two-part track "Warriors Dance" – a number that builds beautifully on rhythms from the bass of Fred Hopkins and drums of Bobby Battle, punctuated by sharper piano from Don Pullman and wild tenor sounds from Chico Freeman – soulfully crafted, but also with some of the playful aspects you'd find in 70s work from the AACM. The tune shifts its shape a lot over the course of its 30-plus minutes – and the album's completed by the wonderful "Land Of The Pharoahs" – a leaping number with a great spiritual avant energy! CD

Mindblowing sounds from legendary reedman Akira Sakata – working here in a setting that's mostly solo, but which also includes some group material from a DVD of the performance too! The core tracks have Sakata blowing amazingly on alto, clarinet, and bass clarinet – these long, thoughtful solos that really mark his contribution to improvised music over the years – almost poetic, even though they're very freewheeling – and marked at points by these raspy, rumbling vocal recitations by Akira – with a tone that's almost as mezmerizing and unique as his work on reed instruments! Solo titles include "Gion Shoja", "The Death Of Kiso", "The Matter Of The Six Paths", "The Assault From The Cliff", "The Death Of Atsumori", and "Battle Of Dan No Ura". Then, the set also includes some group numbers, recorded live – with Jim O'Rourke on guitar, Tatsuhisha Yamamoto on drums and percussion, Chizuru Ishii on percussion and taiko, and Yumiko Tanaka on shamisen – on titles that include "See Chanty Of Ondo", "The Chapter Of The Battle", and "The Death Of Kiso".

Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good- ... $24.99
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

Sonny Stitt & Paul GonsalvesSalt & Pepper (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Impulse, 1963. Used ... $4.99
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 a version of "Perdido" that's nearly 13 minutes long – plus "Stardust", "Sposin", "Salt & Pepper", and "Theme From Lord Of The Flies". Also features the full bonus album – Now! CD

Jamaaladeen TacumaRenaissance Man ... CD
Gramavision/Warner (Japan), 1984. Used ... $8.99
A record that really lives up to its title – as it has bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma really stepping past usual roles for his instrument – into that range of new sounds and styles that was exploding in the bass world after the initial impact of Jaco Pastorius! The instrument's as much a force of rhythm as it is of lead here – and is often set up in these electro funk backings by Tacuma's Jamaal combo, with guest work from Olu Dara – but also shifts a bit on other tracks to include performances by Ornette Coleman on alto, David Murray on tenor, Vernon Reid on guitar, and Daniel Ponce on percussion. Overall, the styles work nicely, without some of the heaviness of some of Tacuma's later records – and titles include "Flash Back", "Dancing In Your Head", "The Battle Of Images", "Sparkle", "The Next Stop", "Renaissance Man", and "Let's Have A Good Time".

Martha VelezMatinee Weepers ... CD
Sire/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Possibly the best album ever from vocalist Martha Velez – a female singer from the 70s, and one with an approach that was equal parts rock and soul! There's a nice punch to most of these tracks – a feel that's balanced well between familiar modes, and often supported with some great rhythms too – strong keyboards and drum parts that give the tunes a bit more kick than you might expect, and which almost push the record into the territory of Aussie soul singer Renee Geyer. The cut "Jive Elephant" begins with a great break on the intro – and other tracks include "Superficial Lover", "Last Battle On Earth", "Aggravation", "Revelation", and a version of "Mocking Bird".

Tony WilliamsNative Heart ... CD
Blue Note, 1989. Used ... $11.99
Really wonderful work from the legendary Tony Williams – a set that has the drummer hitting a whole new sound at the start of the 90s – a groove that's rich and soulful, yet still every bit as sharp as before! The set's straight ahead, and graced with some very youthful energy by a new-generation lineup that includes Wallace Roney on trumpet, Bill Pierce on tenor and soprano sax, Mulgrew Miller on piano, and Robert Hurst on bass – all players who bristle with excitement from the very first notes, expressing a sense of confidence and vision of a new jazz generation that no longer has to battle between its inside and outside impulses. Williams' drumming is superb, and nicely understated at many points – and titles include "Native Heart", "City Of Lights", "Extreme Measures", "Liberty", and "Two Worlds". CD

Quando QuangoPigs & Battleships ... LP
Factory (UK), 1985. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Essential post-disco work from one of the most dancefloor-friendly groups of the Factory Records scene – the seminal Quando Quango, an outfit who had almost equal impact on the New York and Manchester scenes! Quando have some of the darker touches of the New Order generation – but they've also got an overall groove that's much warmer, and often tinged with tasty bits of Latin percussion, thanks to Simon Topping, formerly of ACR. There's also a nice little electro style to the rhythms – one that borrows a bit from the downtown scene, and sparingly uses electronics amidst the acoustic instrumentation – making for a funky old school groove that bubbled underground in the US on a few surprisingly successful singles.

Eric EtheridgeBreach Of Peace – Portraits of The 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders (hardcover) ... Book
Atlas, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
A very striking portrait of the price of freedom – a book that features police mug shots of Freedom Riders who helped break down boundaries during the key years of Civil Rights – folks whose sacrifice and struggles opened the door to freedoms we enjoy today ! The oversize book is way more than just photos, though – as it offers up the original images from when the subjects were arrested for peaceful protest – along with details on their life at the time, plus the paths they've taken since the 60s – often with a contemporary photograph in juxtaposition. Together, these elements tell a fascinating history – of fighters who've continued to fight, as new battles are waged in defense of these hard-won freedoms. Most photos are black and white – and the oversized book is hardcover, and 240 pages. Book

Henry ManciniMancini's Angels/Theme Scene ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. Used ... $14.99
Two groovy late 70s albums from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Mancini's Angels has happy Hank surrounded by plenty of cleavage – a cover that's perfect for the album's title play on the hit Charlie's Angels show! Mancini does a great job with the theme to that one, and also adds in some cool keyboards you wouldn't have heard on the original – and the rest of the album is a mix of other mid 70s TV themes, plus some cool originals penned by Mancini himself, but with a very similar flavor – often quite funky, in a soundtrack sort of way. Titles include "Charlie's Angels", "Car Wash", "Silver Streak", "Inspector Clouseau Theme", "Gonna Fly Now", "What's Happening", "The Moneychangers", and "Evergreen". The Theme Scene features plenty of cool 70s soundtrack themes – titles pulled from both film and TV use, some with a feel that's every bit as funky as Henry Mancini's great work on the Cop Show album! Titles include "The Cheap Detective", "Star Trek", "Heaven Can Wait", "Children Of Sanchez", "Battlestar Galactica", "Once Is Not Enough", "Three's Company", "NBC News Theme", and "Fantasy Island".

A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s. The two horns aren't really locked in combat here, but they do complement each other nicely on the album's mellow groovers and ballad tracks. Titles include "Cha Bootie", "Tenor Eleven", "The Last Mile", and "Full Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beastie BoysHot Sauce Committee Part 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Grand Royal/Capitol, 2011. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 – and it sounds to us like 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 finess 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.

Salvation, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really stunning set from Ghostface Killah – a record that has the Wu-Tang legend teaming up with soul group The Revelations – who produce the set, participate, and bring in a really wonderful old school vibe! The album's still hip hop at the core – with guest appearances from Pharoahe Monch, Nems, Kool G Rap, AZ, and others – but The Revelations also sing a bit too, bringing in a killer harmony approach that's often echoes by the instrumentation, which includes guitar from Wes Mingus and keyboards from Angela Johnson, who also sings a bit of backup as well. The whole thing's a stunning meeting of minds – almost 70s New Jersey soul filtered through 90s New York hip hop – and even the booklet is a collective effort, with comics from David Lapham and others. Titles include "Here I Go Again", "Dogs Of War", "The Battlefield", "Call My Name", "Pieces To The Puzzle", and a sweet cover of "Thin Line Between Love & Hate". CD

The set's as classic as you can get for Pepper – right down to the classic William Claxton photo on the cover (which has a chilling story that you'll find in Art's autobiography). Players include Jack Sheldon, Russ Freeman, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne – and titles include "Pepper Returns", "Funny Blues", "Angel Wings", "Walkin Out Blues", "Five More", "Minority", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place. The album's got a great Don Martin cover, and titles include "Battleground", "Five Brothers", "Four & One More", "Red Door", and "Zootcase". Plus this CD issue includes 3 alternate takes, too! CD

✨✧ VariousGet On Board Little Children – The Modern Gospel Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Modern Records label is best known for a huge run of R&B classics in the postwar years – but during the same stretch, the company also recorded some great gospel material too – tracks that are lesser-known than their secular music, but every bit as soulful overall! The cuts here are often pretty stripped-down and spare – with less of the larger arrangements that Modern was bringing to its jump blues and solo singers – and instead more of a focus on the incredible vocal interplay between the singers in the group – many of whom were forging out the kind of dynamics that would later break big in the world of doo wop, but which really had their start in spiritual sounds like this. The package brings together 28 rare tracks from the vaults of Modern/RPM – some never issued before, and all with really wonderful sound – in the best Ace Records tradition. Titles include "In My Savior's Care" by Four Star Quartet, "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" by Smith Jubilee Singers, "Satisfied" by Harmonizers, "Go Devil Go" by Madam Ira Mae Littlejohn, "Climbing Jacob's Ladder" by Echoes Of Zion, "The Sun Will Never Go Down" by Swanee River Quartet, "On My Way (parts 1 & 2)" by Rev CC Chapman, "I Wanna See Jesus" by Madam Ira Mae Littlejohn, "Get On Board Little Children" by James Earle Hines & His Goodwill Singers, "I Took My Master's Hand" by Echoes Of Zion, "On The Battlefield For The Lord" by Swanee River Qurtet, and "Steal Away To Jesus" by Four Star Quartet.
