Aaron BellAfter The Party's Over ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $5.99
An obscure 50s session from bassist Aaron Bell – one of the player's few dates as a leader, cut at a time when he was working in Duke Ellington's group of the decade! As with some of Duke's other bassists, Bell's got a strongly pronounced tone – one that came through great in big group setting, and which really shines even more here – working in a mostly piano trio setting, and coming across with a good sense of bounce and soul. The album features Bell in a few different groups – with players who include Hank Jones or Charlie Bateman on piano, Ed Thigpen or Elvin Jones on drums, and a bit of extra trombone from Tyree Glenn. Bell even plays a bit of added tuba on a few tunes – using the instrument in a way that's not too different from his bass – and titles include "After The Party Blues", "Cool", "Party Blues", "Kumquat", "All The Way", "Love Nest", and a 2-part version of "Satin Doll".

Charles Bell & The Contemporary Jazz QuartetAnother Dimension ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A wonderful set by the enigmatic Charles Bell – a 60s modernist, but one with a great sense of soul! The album definitely lives up to its title, and has a fresh approach to the medium – a style that has some of the Modern Jazz Quartet influence in its structure, yet which also shares some more complex rhythmic ideas from the Ornette Coleman camp – mixed with a straighter hardbop vibe as well! The blend is quite compelling – and in addition to Bell's work on piano, the set also features Bill Smith on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Allan Blairman on drums. Titles include "Satan Said", "Django", "Portrait Of Aunt Mary", "Theme", and "Bass Line". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsThere's Gonna Be A Showdown ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stormer from Archie Bell & The Drells – one of our favorite soul albums ever, and a masterpiece of mid-tempo soul! Archie Bell & The Drells sound amazing here – light years from the rougher funk of their earlier years, yet still with a groove that's undeniable – an incredible meeting of soul music scenes handled by the young Gamble & Huff team – who not only produce most of the record, but also wrote most of the tracks on the set! The groove is lightly lilting, and totally on the money – a sound that's incredible, and hard to describe in words – but which really grabs us from the get-go. All tracks are great, and totally fresh – and tunes include "I Love My Baby", "Houston Texas", "Showdown", "My Balloon's Going Up", "Giving Up Dancing", "Girl You're Too Young", and "Green Power".

✨✧ William BellRelating ... LP
Stax, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great return to basics for William Bell – and an album recorded with a warm, intimate quality that we really love! The vibe here is almost in the style of some of the growing Malaco work coming out of the Jackson scene – with a sound that's smooth, but somehow even more deeply soulful than before – lots of room up top for the lead vocals to come across with a sense of personal commitment – but also some full, rich backings that include organ, guitars, and even a bit of strings. Rhodes Chalmers Rhodes back William up on most tracks – and titles include "Lovin On Borrowed Time", "Getting What You Want", "Such A Fever", "Drinkin & Thinkin", and "Nobody But You".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsTighten Up ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible bit of southern funk – the first landmark LP by Archie Bell & The Drells, and the first big burst of energy from the Texas scene of the 60s! The album's incredible – with Archie up front on rough-hewn vocals, the band grooving in a mad tangle of guitar, bass, and drums, and some super-fierce horn work by the TSU Tornadoes! You've no doubt heard the band's classic "Tighten Up (part 1)", but this album also includes the incredible "part 2" to the track – which takes the groove a million miles higher! And the whole album's equally great – filled with other tight soul gems that include "A Thousand Wonders", "I Don't Want To Be A Playboy", "Give Me Time", and "When You Left Heartache Began".

Dave BrubeckDave Brubeck At Wilshire-Bell ... LP
Fantasy, 1953. Good+ ... $9.99
An early concert from the Dave Brubeck Quartet, but a great one too – and a set that's filled with sparklingly crisp alto work from the mighty Paul Desmond! The style here is in keeping with some of Brubeck's early Fantasy studio sides – a bit more inside than later years, with a straightly swinging groove that's a perfect showcase for Desmond's amazing talents on the alto sax – recorded here with really great fidelity, despite the live setting of the show. Tracks are all longish, more so than some on the studio albums – and other members of the group include Ron Crotty on bass and Lloyd Davis on drums. Titles include "Stardust", "All The Things You Are", "I'll Never Smile Again", "Too Marvelous For Words", "Why Do I Love", and "Let's Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

There's lots of cool arrangements and weird instrumental twists, as you'd expect from Bob at this time, and the LP includes a version of his own "Barbarella", plus "Let Me Touch You" and "An Angel Is Love".

An evocative soundtrack to Alain Resnais directed film La Guerre Est Finie – with a variety of moods, but often done with a spare touch and a measured, moody melodicism! There's a lot of harpsichord in the arrangements, which bring both gently emotional and sweetly poignant movements – sometimes building up with busier arrangements and wordless vocals bringing some very effective atmosphere.

A great little album from Gary – his one big American hit, and a sublime blend of glam and groove, featuring the massive "Rock & Roll", a track that's still played ad infinitum today at sports events – and which never fails to charge up the scene! Gary must have gotten a bucket of royalties for that one – and the rest of the record's equally great, filled with power-driving numbers that have a roar like a Harley in low gear. Also includes "Baby Please Don't Go", "I Didn't Know I Loved You (Till I Saw You Rock & Roll)",'Ain't That A Shame", "Rock On","The Famous Instigator" and "Shaky Sue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michel LegrandBrian's Song ... LP
Bell, 1972. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A wonderful little record from Michel Legrand – one of his best non-soundtrack albums of the time! The album is titled after the theme to the soppy film Brian's Song – but it's got a lot more to offer than that – and has Legrand performing versions of soundtrack numbers from a variety of films, using sweet 70s orchestrations in a manner that builds off his best 60s work – but also opens up the sound a bit more. There's a spacious feel here we really love – soaring strings over electric basslines, and lots of tight piano work from Legrand himself – and titles include "Picasso Summer", "Pieces of Dreams", "I Will Say Goodbye", and "Dis-Moi".

Spooky ToothSpooky Tooth (aka It's All About) ... LP
Bell, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
A masterpiece of psychedelic pop from the early years of Island Records – and a set that really captures that key shift from R&B-influenced sounds to much headier territory on the UK scene! Spooky Tooth came to this debut with a fair bit of previous activity in other groups – and there's a core energy here that still holds onto the soul-influenced grooves of the mod scene – which makes for some romping cuts that are almost freakbeat tunes, but which are twisted nicely with some fuzzier production and longer-haired expressions! The vocals have a nice undercurrent of soul – unabashedly powerful, but years before such a style would sound cliche – and the drums, bass, and guitar leap into the fray with equally wonderful energy. The approach is a bit like Procol Harum at the start, but more individual – and titles include "Too Much Of Nothing", "Society's Child", "Bubbles", "Forget It I Got It", "It Hurts You So", "Sunshine Help Me", and "Love Really Changed Me".

AmericaHearts ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Warm wonderful work from America – keenly collaborating here with producer George Martin, who helps them take their already-great sound into a whole new dimension! Martin's got a wonderfully smooth touch on his studio work here – cool, compressed, and just right for the group's harmony approach – yet never in ways that are slick or sleepy at all! If anything, there might even be more intimacy to these songs than on the group's initial records – and the best vocal and acoustic touches are still preserved nicely amidst some larger lovely arrangements from George. Titles include "Sister Golden Hair", "Midnight", "Bell Tree", "Old Virginia", "People In The Valley", "Seasons", and "Daisy Jane". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneOm ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio – initially in the spirit of Love Supreme, but much sharper-edged and unbridled overall – as if the meditative spirit of the previous recording had unlocked a sense of freedom that refused to be tied down to simple structures! The group is great – and features Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – plus a bit of flute and percussion from Joe Brazil. The playing is much freer than on other albums of the time, but also has some introspective spiritual moments – clearly inspired by the Love Supreme recording, but taken a shade outside as well!

CorporationCorporation ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Good+ ... $6.99
An excellent album of jazzy rock material from Detroit! The Corporation were definitely one of the hipper groups ever to record for Capitol during the late 60s, as you'll hear on their incredible version of John Coltrane's "India", done as a progged-out slightly funky instrumental, and taking up all of side 2 of the record. Given that there's no sax player in the group, their version's quite different than the original, with lots of nice organ and guitar jamming. Side 1 of the album features the group on 5 shorter psyche vocal numbers – like "Smile", "Drifting", "Highway", and "Ring That Bell" – all of them pretty groovy, and with some good jazzy influences.

A nice little set that combines some of Eddie's rare work for King from the mid 50s! Eddie's tenor is in wonderful form here, working with a real sense of economy on the album's short tracks – a sense that you don't always get in some of his more stretched-out sets for Prestige. Backing on most tracks is by an organ trio – with either Shirley Scott or Doc Bagby at the keys – and titles include "Mean To Me", "The Happy Whistler", "Smooth Ride", "Yesterdays", and "If I Were A Bell".

CBS (Japan), 1964. Near Mint- ... $36.99
Miles Davis' first-ever performance in Japan – a really unique concert that featured the quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by a young Sam Rivers on tenor! The presence of Rivers really gives the set an edge – and although Miles is holding Sam a bit more in check than on some of his "new thing" albums from the time, there's an overall quality here that's different than the other Davis quintet albums of the time. The set was one of a number of important Miles Davis live sessions from the period – including albums from Berlin, Antibes, and Chicago – and titles include "If I Were A Bell", "My Funny Valentine", "So What", "Walkin'" and "All Of You".

DefunktThermonuclear Sweat ... LP
Hannibal, 1982. Very Good+ ... $5.99
While part of us wants to identify Joseph Bowie's avant jazz background and the links to the downtown early 80s scene, we think it's more than fair to just put Defunkt into a class of their own as horn driven modern funk. This time out the group is made up of John Mulkerin, Kelvyn Bell, Kim Clarke and Kenny Martin, with some help from Vernon Reid, Richard Martin, Dave Hubbard and Clarence Taylor but the groove is very much in the vein of their earlier efforts, seamlessly melding jazzy riffs and tight grooves with some occasional nods to the black rock movement and their off kilter post punk peers. 8 tracks in all, including "Illusion", "I Tried To Live Alone", "Cocktail Hour (Blue Bossa)", "Ooh Baby", "Avoid The Funk", "Big Bird (Au Private)", "For The Love Of Money" and "Believing In Love".

The third album in an amazing early run from The Delfonics – the kind of work that set a whole new standard for group soul in the 70s! A number of the tracks here had already risen to fame before the album's release as singles – and these are mixed with some additional tracks that are woven together in a near-perfect symphony of sound! The mighty Thom Bell arranged most of the numbers here – save for 2 by Anthony Dorsey – and the group's heavenly harmonies are in amazing form on both mellow ballads and a few more righteous numbers. Titles include "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time", "Funny Feeling", "Over & Over", "Baby I Love You", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Delfonics Theme", "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me", "I Gave To You", "Down Is Up Up Is Down", and "Think About Me".

And in fact, the slight change in backings makes for a fresher approach to the group's vocals than on some of their classics – a very groovy sound that we really like a lot!

The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise".

Manu DibangoSoul Makossa ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $24.99
An incredible record – even if it was a worldwide hit! Before this one came out, Manu was a funky sax player grooving away in Cameroun, cutting tight but obscure soulful sides. In 1972, though, he exploded with the track "Soul Makossa" – a choppy hard-riffing number that blew up on dancefloors instantly, thanks to a strong cultural colonial pipeline already laid down by the French. The track had this amazing choppy beat that was instantly copied by loads of folks – as was the "Soul Makossa" tune, which due to some sort of copyright loophole, was covered by just about as many groups in the 70s as "Der Komissar" was in the 80s! (This is also why the album has a banner on the top that says "The Original"!) The rest of the album was recorded to follow up on the strength of that single – and believe it or not, it's actually even better, as the band is completely tight, very funky, and playing with that weird mix of Afro rhythms and electric funk that was being laid down in Paris at the time (and in fact, French jazzer Georges Arvanitas actually plays on the album!) Manu's tone is incredible, and the record's a must-have in the bin of any fan of 70s Afro Funk! Cuts include "New Bell", "Hibiscus", "Lily", and "O Boso". LP, Vinyl record album

One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision hinted at in the Maggot Brain years! The tunes are shorter, funkier, and catchier – and the vocals are especially great – so much so than on the title cut "Cosmic Slop" has harmonies so great you'd swear you were listening to late-Motown Temptations! Other tracks continue with a great soul-based focus, and include "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure", "Nappy Dugout", "No Compute", and "Can't Stand the Strain" – and the record is packaged in a mind-blowing wraparound cover by Pedro Bell, the first of many the band would use!

Bootsy and Eddie Hazel have stepped aside for the set, but that gives Bernie Worrell plenty of room to work his magic on keyboards – in a way that really increases the spacier elements of the set, and almost trades a messed-up moogy sort of feel for the heady guitars of earlier years – a slippery kind of Funky Worm groove that we totally love! The set is self-described as "delightfully putrid" on the Pedro Bell cover – and we couldn't agree more!

One of the true hit jazz albums of the 60s, and a record that's still pretty darn incredible today! Who'd have thought that a jazz recording of the theme to the film "Exodus" could have been such a hit? It was, and the way Eddie handled it forever transformed the face of jazz. Eddie was nicely poised between the harder soul jazz camps and the freer spiritual jazz underground that was operating in Chicago and Detroit in the 60s – and with his unique combo that had Joe Dorio on guitar, he transformed the song into a great groove that matched the other excellent material that he was laying down at the time. This record's a gem, which is often rare for such a jazz "hit" – and it includes loads of great tracks like "AM Blues", "Velocity", "Alicia", and "ATC". LP, Vinyl record album

Willis blows in the lead on all tracks, supported by legendary Sigma players – and the sound is a lush and sweetly soulful one, almost an instrumental version of the Philly work that had been coming out from some of the mellower soul groups on Atlantic at the time. Phil Hurtt co-produced the album with Tony Bell – and Phil also sings on the set, mostly working in background chorus modes, but occasionally speaking in a warm, romantic mode that's really nice.

Tracks are a mix of originals, and well-chosen modern moments from years past – played with a mix of soulful colors and more angular sounds, almost in the manner of VSOP from a few years before.

A tremendous bit of west coast jazz from drummer Louis Bellson – recorded under the auspices of Gene Norman, and with a lineup that includes Ellington contemporaries, plus a few key other players! The all-star lineup includes wonderful alto work from Willie Smith, plus baritone from Harry Carney, trombone from Juan Tizol, trumpet from Clark Terry, tenor from Wardell Gray, French horn from John Graas, and piano from Billy Strayhorn – a very unique lineup that works here with Bellson in a set of tracks rich in colors and moods. Titles include "Eyes", "Shadows", "Rainbow", "Punkin", "Sticks", and "Passion Flower". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some aging and a bit of pen on back.)

Henry Wolff, Nancy HenningsTibetan Bells ... LP
Island, 1972. Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
Very trippy. The album purports to be the first time that Tibetan bells were ever recorded. We don't know if that's true or not, but it is a nice batch of space-out tracks that would have sounded great in the early days of FM radio. Wolff and Hennings wrote all tracks, and titles include "Khumbu Ice Fall", "White Light", "Clear Light", and the extended "Choir Of Bells". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: Vinyl has some heat warpage which renders side 1, track 1 as well as the first few minutes of side 2, unplayable.)

✨✧ Regina BelleAll By Myself ... LP
Columbia, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet debut from soul singer Regina Belle – a nice dose of class and sophistication in the world of mid 80s R&B! Regina's got a well-developed style right from the start – the kind of poise that you might hear from someone like Phyllis Hyman, especially on the mellower cuts – with nice undercurrents of jazz that really help send the whole thing home – and really keep the album away from cloying commercial styles too! The set features some mighty nice instrumental elements alongside the vocals – including keyboards from Dexter Wansel and alto from Don Myrick – and titles include "Show Me The Way", "Intimate Relations", "Gotta Give It Up", "So Many Tears", "Please Be Mine", and "You Got The Love".

✨✧ Al GreenBelle Album ... LP
Hi Records, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio – from Fred Jordan and Reuben Fairfax, whose names are hidden in smaller type, under the message on the back that says that the record is "something new" – but as we've come to learn from all the other Al Green records we've loved over the years, the man himself is more than enough to make the record wonderful – with vocals that are unbeatable at this point in his career! Titles include "All N All", "Belle", "Loving You", "Georgia Boy", "Feels Like Summer" and "Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousTroubled Waters – A Compilation Of Blues & Gospel Recordings By George Mitchell 1962 to 1976 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great field recordings from the 60s and 70s – mostly secular blues, and done in a style that's kind of a modern update of sounds from the delta! Most cuts here feature just a voice and guitar – recorded by George Mitchell with this really haunting, eerie quality that's very different than studio blues of the time – that kind of close-up and personal vibe of an ethnographic recording, with a style that's incredibly moving, even when very subtle. There's no overdone attempts at authenticity here – yet the organic power of the music really comes through – on titles that include "Careless Love" by Furry Lewis, "Hey Freddie" by Napoleon Strickland, "Poor Black Mattie" by RL Burnside, "Lucy Mae Blues" by Cecil Barfield, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Rosa Lee Hill, "Miss Maybelle" by Jessie Lee Fortis, "My Lord" by Green Pascal, and a few instrumentals by James Davis on guitar!
