Quincy JonesBob & Carol & Ted & Alice ... LP
Bell, Late 60s. Sealed ... $7.99
Swingers unite! Quincy Jones did the score for this very strange film about two couples who decided to freak out their marriages a bit. Some of the material features some jazzy remakes of Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus", but other tracks have a nice groovy sound to them. Includes a bunch of versions of "What the World Needs Now" – plus instrumental cuts "Giggle Grass", "Flop Sweat", "Dynamite", and "Sweet Wheat". LP, Vinyl record album

Merrilee Rush & The TurnaboutsAngel Of The Morning ... LP
Bell, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Sweet sweet pop with just a hint of soul – Rush has a sound that's really great – and almost a bit unique – kind of a post-folk mode that echoes with Sunshine Pop traces, but which also hits sadder, more somber notes at times – and which shows a bit of an ear for southern soul styles. We're not saying that the album's actually a southern soul set, but it's clear that Merrilee kept her ears open to the music – and since she's working here with Memphis legends Tommy Cogbill and Chips Moman on production, there's certainly some undercurrents in the music. Titles include the hit "Angel Of The Morning", plus "Hush", "Do Unto Others", "Sunshine & Roses", "Billy Sunshine", "Handy", "That Kind Of Woman", and "San Francusco". LP, Vinyl record album

Pee Wee RussellPee Wee Russell Plays Pee Wee ... LP
Bell, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
A strangely beautiful record recorded during Pee Wee Russell's brief comeback as a modernist folk hero during the 60s. As with a number of his other sessions from the time, Russell's tone is amazingly angular, with strange off-kilter notes that expose the genius that had been lurking for years behind playing that was otherwise fairly straightforward. Titles include "The Lady's In Love", "I'm In The Market For You", and "Pee Wee's Song" – and the group is a quintet with Nat Pierce on piano and Steve Jordan on guitar. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oscar Toney JrFor Your Precious Love ... LP
Bell, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible bit of southern soul – and the kind of record that stands head to head with any of the classics on Stax or Atlantic from the 60s! Oscar Toney Jr may not have been as famous as Otis Redding, but in a letter on the back, Otis gives Toney plenty of credit for his abilities – and Oscar more than lives up to that promise on the grooves in the LP – a near-perfect batch of southern soul material recorded in Memphis by Chips Moman, produced by Papa Don, and with great backing work from players who include Bobby Emmons on organ, Tommy Cogbill on bass, and Reggie Young on guitar. The whole album has a warm, intimate feel – and almost even gets away from some of the cliches that were cluttering up other records. And even though most tracks are familiar from other artists, Toney sings them with a depth that's all his own – on titles that include "For Your Precious Love", "He Don't Love You", "Down In Texas", "Dark End Of The Street", "Any Day Now", "No Sad Song", "That's All I Want From You", "Moon River", "Do Right Woman", and "Turn On Your Love Light".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '77Love Music ... LP
Bell, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Warm mellow magic from Sergio Mendes in the 70s – a great little album that's got a sweet electric feel! The set was recorded with help from Tom Scott and Bob Alcivar on arrangements, and has a sunny southern California feel that's a nice extension of Sergio's 60s work – yet which also takes his sound to a whole new level. There's still some traces of Braziliana in the mix, but there's also a lot more straight soulful pop – really working that twin female vocal lead style nicely, and wrapping it around some great tunes like "I Wouldn't Last A Day Without You", "Hey Look At The Sun", "Love Music", "Killing Me Softly", "Where Is The Love", "Put A Little Love Away", and "Walk The Way You Talk".

Rance Allen GroupSoulful Experience ... LP
Truth/Stax, 1975. Very Good- ... $14.99
A beautiful mix of gospel soul and heavy Memphis production – and the kind of heavy soul album that made Rance Allen one of Stax's best new artists during the 70s. David Porter produced and arranged, and the album has some great electric keyboard work by Rance that provides a perfect counterfoil for his rich baritone voice. The album's a lot more stripped down than later efforts – with a rootsy sound that should have made Rance even bigger with the crossover crowd. Titles include "Talk That Talk", "The Painter", "Ring My Bell", and "Harlem Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MinkReal Mink ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of the first albums from Blue Mink – a seminal rock/soul crossover act who really broke bigger in the 70s! The album's strongest asset is singer Madeline Bell, who works in duet form with group leader Roger Cook on most numbers – bringing the record a strongly soulful component that really helps sell some of its beat group leanings. And in the instrumentation department, the group here have plenty of touches from the late 60s Brit beat scene – including strong presence of organ and electric piano, lots of jamming guitar, and an overall approach to the groove that's strongly influenced by American soul and R&B, but which also has jazzy touches. Titles include "Good Morning Freedom", "Gimme Reggae", "Can You Feel It Baby", "Our World", "Sweet & Sour", "I Lose The Game", and "Silk What?". LP, Vinyl record album

Ruby BraffYou're Getting To Be A Habit With Me ... LP
Stereocraft, 1961. Very Good- ... $11.99
We're not normally the biggest fans of Ruby Braff – but this is a great little album, thanks to some strong instrumentation! The group on the set's a sextet – with Ruby leading on trumpet, plus Mundell Lowe on guitar, Don Elliott on vibes, Milt Hinton on bass, Don Lamond on drums, and either Hank Jones or Nat Pierce on piano. The use of vibes and guitar creates a sound that gets past the hoke of other Braff sessions – shading in the tunes with moody colors and tones that provide a good contrast to the sweetness of Braff's horn, creating a juxtaposition that gives the set more edge than you might expect. Titles include "Cabin In The Pines", "Lazy", "Someday Sweetheart", "If Dreams Come True", and "Let's Do It". LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony Braxton3 Compositions Of New Jazz (North Lincoln) ... LP
Delmark, 1968. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Even at an early age, Anthony Braxton was already experimenting with new forms of jazz composition – and this 1968 debut as a leader is filled with the imaginative approaches to music that would make him a key shaper of jazz in the next decade! The tracks here are all quite long, and although free-sounding, still have an intrinsic logic dictated by Braxton's compositional ideals – played by himself on alto, soprano sax, clarinet, flute, and a variety of other instruments – in a quartet that features Leo Smith on trumpet and mellophone, Muhal Richard Abrams on piano and cello, and Leroy Jenkins on violin and viola. In true AACM fashion, all players pick up other instruments as the tunes roll on – percussion bits, kazoo, slide whistle, bells, and more – almost more Art Ensemble-like than some of Braxton's more tightly-controlled environments on later records. Titles include two pieces titled in Braxton's equation-like style – plus "The Bell". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing with North Lincoln address.)

✨✧ Gary BurtonIn Concert ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good ... $6.99
Groundbreaking work on vibes by Gary Burton – recorded in a setting that's live and open, yet quite groovy too! There's a rhythmic freeness that marks the set from the very first note – lessons learned from the generation of Ornette, yet taken in new direction – and definitely into new colors and tones – thanks to Burton's amazingly chromatic vibes, and the vivid guitar of Larry Coryell – not to mention the unusual rhythms from Steve Swallow on bass and Bob Moses on drums. These youthful players push the envelope even more than on some of Burton's other RCA albums of the time – going for a groove that's much more open and abstract, and which puts Coryell's guitar in a role that's as important as Burton's vibes in the set. Titles include "Wrong Is Right", "Walter L", "Lines", "The Sunset Bell", and "Blue Comedy". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Davis/Charlie VenturaBattle Of Saxes ... LP
King, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
Tremendous tenor work from both parties involved – but especially from Eddie Davis, who always sounds wonderful on his early sides for King! Davis has a clear, clean tone that's totally great – and given the short space of these tunes, he really gets a lot done with a little – in a tight way that's somewhat different than his later sides for Prestige. Backing on the Davis sides includes some organ – probably by Shirley Scott – and titles include "Mean To Me", "All Of You", "Out Of Nowhere", "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm", and "If I Were A Bell". Charlie Ventura's great too – a bit more modern, almost, than on some of his better-known sides – and playing with a mean, lean, boppish tone. Ventura titles include "Liza", "Give Me The Simple Life", "If I Had You", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisRelaxin' With The Miles Davis Quintet (180 gram 2 x 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1956. Near Mint- 2LP ... $69.99
One of the classic early Miles Davis & John Coltrane sessions for Prestige – a well-crafted quintet album that shows Miles finding a stronger voice than ever, and Coltrane beginning to emerge as a key force on his own! Backing is subtle and soulful – handled by the trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – and although the tracks are mostly ballads and standards, they're all nicely given the Davis treatment on the set, turned into beautiful new vehicles for jazz imagination and improvisation! Titles include "If I Were A Bell", "I Could Write A Book", "Oleo", and "Woody'n You". LP, Vinyl record album

Incredible stuff – and a rare meeting of two giant jazz talents you'd never thought would appear on the same stage! The album features a 1960 concert in Sweden – Miles and Sonny upfront, with backing by the trio of Wyton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. Tracks are long, fiery, and a bit dirty (if we can say that in mixed company!) – and titles include "No Blues", "If I Were A Bell", "Walkin", "All Of You", and "On Green Dolphin Street".

Duke EllingtonDuke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins (80s pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1962. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The meeting of two classic talents late in their careers – in a setting that's ideal to bring out all the complexity of their well-honed genius! The approach of the album is mostly an Ellington one – as the group features some of Duke's stalwarts, like Ray Nance, Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, Lawrence Brown, and Aaron Bell – but Coleman Hawkins gets plenty of space as the main soloist on each number, alongside Duke, who also solos strongly on piano! As with most later records by the players, the writing is great – with a lot more dark moments than you'd expect – and titles include "The Rictic", "You Dirty Dog", "Limbo Jazz", "Wanderlust", and "Self Portrait Of The Bean".

✨✧ Duke EllingtonPiano In The Foreground ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the Duke's greatest jazz recordings – and an album that features some incredible solo work on piano – at a level with other modernist small group sessions in the Ellington catalog, like Money Jungle or Live at the Whitney! As the title says, Duke's piano is very much in the foreground – working in spare trio format that includes Aaron Bell on bass and Sam Woodyard on drums, both plucked from the larger orchestra, and given some great space to work on the set! Duke's the real star, though, and he sparkles tremendously on tunes that include "Summertime", "A Hundred Dreams Ago", "So", "Springtime In Africa", "Blues For Jerry", and "Fontainebleau Forest".

Hard to believe that given Duke Ellington's presence at the start of the 60s, there would be an unknown session from the time – but the discovery of this material in the 70s made for another great chapter in the Duke's career during the classic Columbia years! The material here is played by a sweet small group that includes Ray Nance on coronet, Lawrence Brown on Trombone, Johnny Hodges on alto sax, Harry Carney on baritone, Aaron Bell on bass, and Sam Woodward on drums – all working in a format that almost feels a bit more relaxed and intimate than other Columbia sessions – although not with the rough edges you might expect from a lost date. Tracks include "Everything But You", "Black Beauty", "Something To Live For" "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing", "Mighty Like The Blues", and "Dual Highway". LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Burrito BrothersFlying Burrito Brothers ... LP
A&M, 1971. Good+ ... $13.99
The Burritos first LP, post-Parsons – and a pretty strong statement for the merits of the now unquestioned leader, Rick Roberts, and multi-instrumentalist new guy Bernie Leadon, who would later turn to the dark side and join the Eagles. Roberts penned or co-penned 7 of the albums 10 tunes, including "Colorado", "Hand To Mouth", "Just Can't Be", and "Four Days Of Rain". His contributions are for the most part nicely fragile, with just the right doses of sweetness and sadness. The group also covers Merle Haggard's "White Line Fever", Gene Clark's "Tried So Hard", and Dylan's "To Ramona". This is one of the band's rarer LPs, probably because of the absence of hipster hero Gram Parsons. But this is truly a worthy piece of work, and even the weaker Burrito stuff makes a lot of today's alt-country look like Taco Bell. LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy HughesSomething Special ... LP
Volt, 1969. Near Mint- ... $34.99
The only Stax album cut by singer Jimmy Hughes – an artist with a huge impact on southern soul in the 60s, but one who never got the push his career deserved, probably because he kept bouncing from label to label! The style here is kind of an update of the groove that Jimmy first recorded for Vee Jay and Atco – a more refined approach to bluesy soul that's somewhat in the same space that Stax were hitting with Johnny Taylor at the time. Backings are sometimes nicely chunky, almost funky – and tunes are produced by Al Jackson, Al Bell, and Charles Chalmers – all good candidates for a set like this. Titles include "I Like Everything About You", "Let 'Em Down Baby", "Lay It On The Line", "Sweet Things You Do", "I'm Not Ashamed To Beg Or Plead", and "It's All Up To You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Bob JamesTwo ... LP
CTI, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – as happened with some of his later records on the Tappan Zee imprint. Here, James is still a master of space and sound – using the Fender Rhodes with bell-like tones to craft some key grooves that are still having an amazing impact today, more than 30 years after the album was initially recorded! There's a darkness here that we totally love – and tracks include the legendary "Take Me To The Mardi Gras", which has been sampled by Run DMC and loads of others – plus"The Golden Apple", "I Feel A Song", "You're As Right As Rain", "Farandole", and "Dream Journey".

Wynton Marsalis' second date for Columbia Records, and an album that already has him stretching out from the first! Unlike before, when Wynton was given a few older players to help establish his sound, the group here is all Marsalis' own – with brother Branford on tenor and soprano sax, Kenny Kirkland on piano, Jeff Watts on drums, and either Phil Bowler or Ray Drummond on bass. 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. Titles include "Fuschia", "Knozz Moe King", "Later", "The Bell Ringer", "Think Of One", and "Melancholia". LP, Vinyl record album

Ok, maybe the title and some of the subject matter of the rhymes has an Art Bell type feel to it, but the whole project is much doper than that. Here, the extraterrestrial/parapsychology references are more metaphorical. And throughout, the beats have nice stark feel. Probably our favorite cut is "Joints" which uses a track similar the Alkaholics' classic "Hip Hop Junkies" (minus the clanking bottles sound.) Followed by "The Rock" using the chorus from the Funky 4 + 1 "Rockin' It." Also includes guest appearances from El Fudge and DJ Mr. Len of Company Flow. LP, Vinyl record album

Apple, 1968. Sealed ... $13.99
A nice one! The MJQ record for the Beatles' label, and the record's one of their most interesting in years! The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than some of the Atlantic recordings. Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers – a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums. Titles include "The Blue Necklace", "Exposure", "Jasmine Tree", and "Three Little Feelings". LP, Vinyl record album

Chelsea, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Man, that east coast harmony sound couldn't miss in the 70s – as proven by the huge AM radio success of New York City! The band wasn't the greatest harmony group in the world – although they did feature John Brown, who'd cut his teeth in the Five Satins – but when you teamed them up with production by Thom Bell, and backing from the Sigma Sound Studios, they created an unstoppable sound that was a perfect pop peddling of the harmony group sound. This album was their biggest – and it includes the classic "I'm Doin' Fine Now", plus lots of other nice tracks like "Hang Your Head In Shame", "Quick, Fast, In A Hurry", "Uncle James", and "Reach Out".

Epic, Late 60s. Fair ... $3.99
Vivian Reed was an obscure soul singer who cut a few equally obscure albums for Epic, of which this is the first. Given that she was a new discovery by the label, it's not surprising that the record was handled in the way that it was – she was produced in 2 different styles, one with arrangements by Jimmy Wisner that have a rootsier soul quality, the other with nice Philly touches by Thom Bell and Bobby Martin. The Philly stuff's the best, and the Bell/Martin team really knows how to get the best out of Vivian – especially on tracks like "Let's Fall In Love All Over Again", "Look The Other Way", "Down Here On The Ground", and "Walk On My Side".

Dawn, Late 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the interesting Jazzville sides issued on the Dawn label, highlighting small cobos that fell a little outside the spotlight of some of the larger jazz oriented labels of the day, but worthy of far more than sidebar status. This set is divided in two like the ohers in the series, devoting one side of the LP to each of two artists. Charlie Smith's trio heads up side one, with drummer Charlie leading a tight trio featuring Hank Jones on piano and Oscar Pettiford on bass through crisp renditions of standards like "Hae You Met Miss Jones", "Body & Soul" and "Flying Home", plus Jones' "Blues For Sal". Side two features a larger group, showcasing reedman Aaron Sachs sextet with Dick Garcia, Osie Johnson, Aaron Bell, Joe Roland and Jimmie Cleveland. The deliver nice laidback takes on numbers that include "Aaron's Blues", "You're My Thrill", "Platter Pie", "Why Shouldn't I" and "Ah! The Pain". LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $39.99
Lost Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and an album that may well blow away better-known work by groups like Malo, Azteca, or El Chicano! The album's near-perfect right from the start – and brings in plenty of New York elements to the groove, thanks to the inclusion of a heady amount of jazz alongside the soul, Latin, and funk elements in the grooves! The legendary Teo Macero produced and arranged – and really takes a lot of care in the studio to focus the overall energy of the tremendous talents on the record – players who include Hadley Caliman on flute and tenor, Steve Marcus on soprano sax, Benny Velarde on timbales, and Francisco Aguabella on congas – plus the trio of Cesar, Mark Levine, and Merl Sanders on keyboards. Most numbers have this really full, flowing groove – jazzy, but with a strong emphasis on the rhythms – and often touched with some great work on guitar that echoes the Santana-inspired sound of the generation, yet never in a rock way at all. Linda Tillery sings vocals on a few numbers, but the main focus is definitely instrumental – and the whole album's great – with cuts that include "See Saw Affair", "Azucar", "Descarga", "The Devil & Montezuma", "Gotta Get Away", and "Bridges".

The group's a great one – with Zoot Sims on tenor, Charlie Shavers trumpet, Don Abney piano, and George Duviver bass. The best tracks are even more stripped down than the usual Verve work – with a focus on a specific instrumentals, as on the tracks "Concerto For Drums", "Bassically Speaking, Duviver, That Is", and "Charlie's Blues". Other tracks include "Buffalo Joe", "I'll Remember April", and "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

This LP's got a harder rockin' bluesy feel to it, with the sort of R&B revival sound of the late 60/early 70. Maybelle's still great, though, and really manages to belt out tracks like "Cold, Cold Heart", "Your Turn To Cry", "Winnie Widow Brown", "Big Sweet Daddy", "Long Long Journey", and "Blame It On Your Love".

Jack Blanchard & Misty MorganBirds Of A Feather ... LP
Wayside, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the great, slightly twisted slices of pop meets country meets psychedelia meets easy moog grooves from Blanchard & Morgan! We know that's a lot of meeting going on, but this fab guy/girl partnership pushed the boundaries of country & pop conventions in the 60s & 70s like no other! Jack & Misty somehow make moogs and steel guitars make sense on the same record – just as well as they with surreal psych era lyricism paired with plaintive tales of working class woes. And they do it all without it ever dipping into hokum.

James BrownSoul On Top ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A different James Brown album – but a nice one! James doesn't sing soul, so much as jazz – in front of large backings by Louis Bellson, with arrangements by Oliver Nelson that are in his best 60s soul mode – and which give the album a very very groovy feel overall! The record's not funky, but James' vocals are plenty darn soulful – and the album is proof that he could be a huge talent in just about any mode that he chose – shining with a brilliance that was irrepressible! James covers a few of his older tracks on the album, and sings a few other pop standards – and titles include nice versions of "It's Magic", "The Man In The Glass", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "That's My Desire", and "I Need Your Key (To Turn Me On)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole and unglued bottom seam.)

Dave BrubeckJazz – Red Hot & Cool ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A sweet live set from Dave Brubeck's early years on Columbia Records – recorded in New York, but with all the calculated cool and modern tones Brubeck first forged in the San Francisco scene of the 50s! Paul Desmond's on board on alto sax – really getting a lot of space to stretch out on the album's extended performances, with a haunting, floating tone that really sends us. Remaining members include Bob Bates on bass, and Joe Dodge on drums – and tracks include "Lover", "Love Walked In", "The Duke", "Little Girl Blue", and "Fare Thee Well Annabelle". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and a bit of pen on back.)

✨✧ Kenny BurrellTender Gender ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good- ... $7.99
Straight, strong, and soulful sounds from guitarist Kenny Burrell – quite possibly one of his best albums of the 60s, thanks to a really well-focused sound throughout! The groove here is nice and tight – a cooking little rhythm section that features Richard Wyands on piano, Martin Rivera on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums – snapping away on the kit on some of the best tracks, and really helping Burrell to hit this groove that's mighty nice! Kenny seems to have a bit more bite than usual too – and even the laidback tunes have plenty going on to keep our ears happy. Titles include "La Petite Mambo", "Suzy", "The Tender Gender", "Girl Talk", "Isabella", "If Someone Had Told Me", and "Hot Bossa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a cutout & some edge wear.)

Captain BeyondCaptain Beyond ... LP
Cotillion, 1972. Good+ ... $11.99
A surprisingly great batch of kick ass rock and roll tunes – southern fried, but done with a cosmic undercurrent that makes for a mighty weird approach! The drums are amazing – fierce right from the get-go, in a way that has made the record a favorite with break collectors for years – and the fuzzy guitars really step out strongly too – with just a slight southern twang, and a great edge that keeps things pretty funky at parts! Bobby Caldwell is in the group on percussion, piano, vibes, and bells – and he also co-wrote most of the songs on the album – and titles include the classic "Dancing Madly Backwards", plus "Myopic Void", "Frozen Over", "Thousand Days Of Yesterdays", "As The Moon Speaks", and "Astral Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

Junie C Cobb & His New Hometown BandChicago – The Living Legends ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A trad-revival set recorded on Chicago's south side in the early 60s – part of an excellent series on Riverside, seeking to re-discover some older jazz and blues greats who were languishing in the Windy City at the time! Junie C Cobb plays mostly piano on the date, but also sings on one number too – in a style that's got plenty of bluesy undercurrents, particularly on the numbers that feature vocals by Annabelle Calhoun. Other group members include Leon Washington on tenor, Fortunatus Fip Ricard on trumpet, and Harlen Bobby Floyd on trombone – and titles include "Be Mine", "Just Because Of You", "Swing Your Hurdy Gurdy", "Once Or Twice", and "Belligerent Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Baby CortezDave Baby Cortez In Orbit ... LP
Roulette, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Smoking Hammond work from the young Dave Cortez – sounding grittier here than on some of his other albums of the time – less pop, and almost with a soul jazz vibe overall – especially given some of his snakey solos! The record may be the closest that Cortez ever came to sounding like Jimmy McGriff – and the backings are tight and soulful, very similar to McGriff at Sue Records – handled by Henry Grover, who also produced. There's an uncredited tenor player on the record who's mighty nice – and a few cuts feature cool female backing vocals – and titles include "Belly Rub (parts 1 & 2)", "In Orbit", "Countdown (parts 1 & 2)", "Sticks & Stones", and "Peg Leg". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, center split on the top seam, and a small split on the bottom seam.)

Lou DonaldsonMr Shing-A-Ling ... LP
Blue Note, 1967. Near Mint- ... $26.99
Funky funky Lou Donaldson – and one of the first albums to feature the tight drum work of Idris Muhammad behind Lou's horn – so early, in fact, that Muhammad's listed here on the label as Leo Morris, which was his original name! The group also features Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Lonnie Smith on organ – and they all wail together in a sound that bridges the gap between Lou's earlier Blue Note soul jazz, and the later funky mode of his jazz funk years! Tracks include "The Humpback", "Peepin", "The Kid", and the fantastic cover of "Ode to Billie Joe" that's as much a sample cut as "Pot Belly"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing, with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has a couple of lightly bumped corners – but this is a great copy overall!)
