Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

MCA, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
A second chapter for boy band 80s soul! After Bobby Brown set off on his own, the remaining three members of New Edition decided to remain a group and give it a go, and far from being a sad collection of the leftover members, their debut album was actually one of many successful New Jack Swing efforts the group would produce! Given a helping hand from the Shocklee brothers on production, this set includes "Poison", "Do Me!", "Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph & Johnny (Word To The Mutha!)", "She's Dope!", "BBD (I Thought It Was Me)?", "When Will I See You Again?" and "Ain't Nut'in Changed!"

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsThere's Gonna Be A Showdown ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Used ... 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".

Family DoggWay Of Life ... LP
Bell (UK), 1969. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
A wide range of work from The Family Dogg – a UK group who were really inspired by the best Sunshine Pop sounds in the US, but one that also helped move the style strongly towards a 70s pop style too! The music is mostly pretty tight here – a mix of female and male voices (one of which is a young Albert Hammond) – rising and dipping with the tuneful hooks and playful melodies of the tracks – definitely the kind of sounds that helped get the Dogg plenty of airplay back at the time.

5th DimensionIndividually & Collectively ... LP
Bell, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
An early 70s treasures from The 5th Dimension – continuing the group's amazing run from the late 60s onward – a sublime blend of the group's great harmonies with standout lead vocals – all produced by Bones Howe, and arranged with help from from Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman! There's a growing sophistication in the set that we really like – a deeper, more personal feel on some of the lyrics – especially some of the more "adult" styled numbers that always showed that the group was way more than just a simple pop machine. Tracks include a scatting vocal version of the Johnny Alf bossa groover "Sky & Sea", plus "I Didn't Get To Sleep At All", "All Kinds Of People", "Tomorrow Belongs To The Children", "Turn Around To Me", "Band Of Gold", and "Border Song".

5th DimensionLiving Together, Growing Together ... LP
Bell, 1973. Near Mint- ... $1.99
The group's grown plenty by the time of this set – hitting a new level of sophistication that takes them way beyond the familiar pop of earlier years! There's definitely a more adult feel to some of these tracks than before – a maturing quality that's really wonderful – probably summed up best in the lead vocals of Marilyn McCoo or Florence LaRue – but still sounding pretty great even when the whole group's singing together! Bones Howe is still at the helm, guiding the group with a heavenly sound that's the pinnacle of pop at the time – and titles include two great Burt Bacharach numbers – "Living Together,Growing Together", lifted from the Lost Horizon soundtrack, and "Let Me Be Lonely" – plus the tracks "Woyaya", "What Do I Need To Be Me", "Open Your Window", and "The Riverwitch".

Michel LegrandThree Musketeers ... LP
Bell, 1974. Near Mint- ... $2.99
70s soundtrack work from the mighty Michel Legrand – his score for the famous Three Musketeers film directed by Richard Lester! The Musketeers music is quite dramatic – often filled with action, but with a few tender spots as well – and although somewhat more conventional in terms of scoring, there's still some of those sweeter Legrand touches we love so much – especially in some of the orchestral moments that echo his energy from Peau D'Ane. As you might guess from the story, there's a few period themes at points – although not as many as you might expect. Titles include "He Ain't Heavy He's The Cardinal", "Four Abreast", "Sword For Your Supper", "To Love A Queen", and "Dirty Business Amongst The Dirty Laundry". LP, Vinyl record album

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 77Vintage 74 ... LP
Bell, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
An excellent little album that Sergio recorded in the US – with a sweet funky electric sound that's very different than his other work! At some level, the album has a feel that's almost like a hip 70s soundtrack – sporting these great arrangements by Dave Grusin that bring in a lot more funk than you might be used to hearing on one of Sergio's albums, making the whole thing groove in a marvelous way – while still holding onto some Brazilian touches in the rhythms, and that sweet two-female vocal lead style of Sergio's other work. The set includes two funky Stevie Wonder covers – "Superstition" and "Don't You Worry About a Thing" – plus versions of "This Masquerade", "Voce Abusou", and "Double Rainbow". LP, Vinyl record album

Bell, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An unbelievably fantastic soundtrack – written for the silly sequel to the film Born Free! Howard Blake lays down some amazingly funky instrumental tracks that have a light "jungle" sound – with lots of rolling bass and hard drums in a sweet late 60s funky sort of style. There's at least 2 or 3 great break tracks on here, and there's a number of other nice ones with a breezy jazzy feel to them. The whole thing's great, with nary a dud track, and the highlights include "An Elephant Called Slowly", "Mr. Mopoji", "Elephant Rides Again", "Poli-Poli", and "Cheetah". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterDee Dee Bridgewater (1980) ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of Dee Dee Bridgewater's few truly soul-based records – recorded during a brief break from jazz at the end of the 70s, and done with some sweetly grooving from Thom Bell! The sound here's a bit like that of some of the later Philly International work from the same stretch – a maturing style that still has a bit of the earlier groove in place, yet which also takes on a more sophisticated approach, especially on the mellower cuts and ballads. In a way, the format's a bit like that used for Jean Carn or Phyllis Hyman at the time – and like those singers, Dee Dee seems to work best here when she's got a nice gentle groove to bring out the jazzier inflections in her voice! Titles include "When You're In Love", "That's The Way Love Should Feel", "Give In To Love", "Lonely Disco Dancer", "One In A Million Guy", and "Jody (Whoever You Are)". LP, Vinyl record album

Thom Bell did all the arrangements and wrote nearly all the songs – 11 tracks in all: "La La Means I Love You", "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "Break Your Promise", "I'm Sorry", "You're Gone", 'With These Hands", "You Got Yours And I'll Get Mine", "Let It Be Me", "Loving Him", "My New Love" and "Somebody Loves You".

Art FarmerSing Me Softly Of The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A sublime little set – one of Art Farmer's seminal quartet recordings from the mid 60s, and a blend of modern lyricism with an ease and economy that's hardly ever been matched again! There's a careful, measured style here that's really tremendous – one that's never too sleepy or lazy with its approach, and which almost seems to carry on the modes of expression first begun by Jimmy Giuffre in the 50s – although in completely different ways! The group features Pete LaRoca on drums, Steve Kuhn on piano, and Steve Swallow on bass – but it's Art's effortless trumpet solos that really make the album sparkle, as they drift over the top of the album's hip original tunes, written by Carla Bley and LaRoca. Titles include "Ad Infinitum", "Petite Bell", "Tears", and "One For Majid". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Kuhn/Gary McFarlandOctober Suite ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
If you've only ever thought of Gary McFarland as the composer of groovy bossa nova-oriented work, you owe it to yourself to check this one out – as McFarland wrote and arranged the whole thing, with a modernist approach that's very sympathetic with the piano of a young Steve Kuhn. The session mixes Kuhn's piano with strings and woodwinds – never too stale or academic, but definitely different than McFarland's usual work, with odd little twists and turns that are really beautiful, a mixture of warm, memory, and the love of life that would show up in Gary's most brilliant moments. Kuhn is fantastic too – not nearly as overindulgent as in later years – fresh on the keys with the spirit of a young Bill Evans, but also willing to work more with the larger format of the record. Titles include "Remember When", "Traffic Patterns", "Open Highway", and "Childhood Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Soundtrack for a film that was a critics favorite at the time of its release – scored here with a mix of styles that runs from the groovy to the serious, with some odd kind of trippy touches thrown in for good measure! The best cuts are actually the mellowest ones – which have a slinky French late 60s soundtrack theme approach – with guitar, piano, or a bit of flute laying out the theme over some rhythmic string passages – almost in the best style of Francis Lai. Titles include "Fight After OJ", "Panda Telephones Gig", "Panda", "Theme From Made For Each Other", and "Zoom In On Dolls", which has some "special effect water guitar" by Vince Bell!

Johnny MathisI'm Coming Home ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Johnny Mathis gets a great new sound here – thanks to Philly production and arrangements from the great Thom Bell! Thom had quite a hand in the songs, too – as almost all numbers were written by the team of Bell and Linda Creed – really sensitive songwriters who've got an adult, mature approach to the music – one that still respects Mathis' roots in other vocal territory, but which also gives him a bit more soulful depth, too. The setting is wonderful, and the record's a real standout in Johnny's 70s career – one that helped reignite interest in the singer at a time when so many folks had left him behind. Titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Foolish", "I'm Stone In Love With You", "A Baby's Born", "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "I Just Wanted To Be Me", and a classic version of "Stop Look & Listen To Your Heart".

Great early work from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was winning big accolades for her work on stage as a parody of Diana Ross in Hair – but stepping out here as a hell of a great soul singer on her own! The tunes have a groove that's a bit more complicated than the usual soul work of the time – charts by Charlie Calello that show all his wonderful background in creative pop in the 60s – plus a few more numbers charted by Thom Bell and Jimmy Wisner. Melba's vocals are superb – very on the money, no matter what the setting – and titles include "Captain St Lucifer", "I Got Love", "Time & Love", "I Love Making Love To You", "I Messed Up On A Good Thing", "Easy To Be Hard", and "The Facade".

Melba MooreLook What You're Doing To The Man ... LP
Mercury, Early 70s. Very Good ... $3.99
A great early soul set from Melba Moore – recording here as a much more righteous vocalist than on her previous theater performances in Purlie and Hair! The album's got a solid feel all the way through – one that really sets Moore on the right path in this side of her career, in ways that maximize the most righteous aspects of her vocals without going too far over the top, or into the area of showy cliches. Arrangements are by Charles Coleman, Charlie Calello, Jimmy Wisner, Thom Bell, and Bert DeCoteaux – and titles include "Loving You Comes So Easy", "Heaven Help Us All", "Searchin For A Dream", "Look What You're Doing To The Man", "Patience Is Rewarded", and "You Got The Power".

✨✧ O'JaysO'Jays In Philadelphia (Neptune pressing) ... LP
Neptune, 1970. Very Good- ... $1.99
Fantastic early O'Jays! The album's the first to feature the group meeting up with the Gamble/Huff team – a significant shift from their earlier work on Imperial, with a style that still retains all the vocal hardness of those days, but which makes a shift into a sweeter soaring soul groove! The move had been taken with similar success by Jerry Butler and Archie Bell & The Drells – and although the sound's a lot different than the group's later work for Philly International, it's a sign that they're really finding their voice, and a style that would push them to the top! Titles include "I Should Be Your Lover", "One Night Affair", "Deeper", "Just Can't Get Enough", "I've Got The Groove", and "You're The Best Thing Since Candy" – and arrangements are by Bobby Martin, Thom Bell, and Richard Rome.

The record does feature a bit of almost-indiscernible voice from Inger Rypdal, but it's really mixed in sparely with the rest of the instrumentation – drifting along more as a sound than a song. Titles include "Autumn Breeze", "Kjare Maren", "Little Bell", "Like A Child Like A Song", and "After The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot SimsWaiting Game ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – very different than any of his other albums! The session features Zoot blowing over large backings arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, a bit in the older Verve "with strings" mode, but also sparkling with a lot of the newer elements that McFarland was bringing to his work at the time. The approach is both light and lush at the same time – and Zoot's got a tone and approach that we've never heard on any other record, making the whole album an incredible treat that we'd rank up there with Stan Getz's experiments of the same type from the 60s. Titles include "I Wish I Knew", "Does The Sun Really Shine On The Moon", "Once We Loved", "Old Folks", "September Song", "Stella By Starlight", and "Once I Could Have Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

SpinnersSpinners Live ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A fascinating little record by The Spinners – and a real contrast to some of their other Atlantic albums! The set has them stepping out of the tightly controlled studio sound of their Philly albums – still working with Thom Bell on production, but doing so in a freer sort of live setting. A number of tracks are taken in very open versions, and really extended out nicely – and there's also some good material on here that shows that the group's harmonies could work in just about any setting. Surprisingly great – a really excellent little album that shows that the group were as strong as a unit as they could be as part of a hit-making machine. Titles in lude "Then Came You", "Sadie", "Fascinating Rhythm", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", "Superstar Medley", "Love Don't Love Nobody", and "Mighty Love". LP, Vinyl record album

This set is a great session of 60s pop tunes, turned Eastern, in the mode of work by Ananda Shankar or Vince Bell – with a blend of original compositions, mixing sitar, tabla, and all manner of baroque 60s arrangements. The tracks include some excellent originals – like "Ltts" and "The Koan" – plus groovery covers like "She's Leaving Home", "Sunshine Superman", and Donovan's great "Trans Love Airways"!

Forget any biases you might have against Clark Terry – this album is a super-hip killer! The arrangements were handled by Joe Cain, a mad mad mad Latin arranger who brings a strange sense of rhythm to the session, and a unique way of inserting instrumental flourishes. There's some nice organ and firey piano, Jerome Richardson plays excellent bits on flute and sax, and Vince Bell and Eric Gale both play guitars. Jose Mangual and Willie Bobo kick it in with percussion, and Terry plays in a tight jaunty style, with occasional mad vocal moments. Titles include "El Blues Latino", "The Cat From Cadiz", "Rum & Mumbles", and "Never". LP, Vinyl record album

Dionne WarwickTrack Of The Cat ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A wonderful album from Dionne Warwick – probably her greatest record after the early years! The session was recorded with production by Thom Bell at Sigma Sound in Philly – and the style is a sweet blend of Philly modes, from fragile ballads to midtempo groovers, all done in a warm and intimate style that's never cloying, and which really gets at the depth of Dionne's soulful style. The record's one of those that you might have passed by for years, but which if you heard it playing at someone's house, you'd say "Dang! What the heck is that?" Great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Track Of The Cat", "His House & Me", "Once You Hit The Road", "This Is Love", and "Love Me One More Time". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful album by Bill Withers – filled with incredibly well written songs, and an amazing instrumental technique that blended folksy elements with smoother 70s soul, in a sound that would put Bill at the top of the charts for many years, yet still give him cred with soul fans for decades! Booker T Jones arranged, produced, and played electric piano on the album – and we can say without a doubt that the record's one of the few good things to come out of his move to LA! Although the album's not a greatest hits one, given the strength of the tracks, it may as well be, as it includes Withers classics like "Grandma's Hands", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Harlem", and "Hope She'll Be Happier". Also features the nice groover, "Better Off Dead", which has a very tasty intro! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Expensive Sh*t ... LP
Makossa, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to take a dump for the cops in order to "produce the goods" (which he had cleverly hidden in his stomach). The track has a great choppy funk groove, and is filled with the kind of raw anger you can imagine that the subject matter would produce – rich emotion that not only comes out in the lyrics, but also the sharp instrumental solos! The other track on the album – "Water No Get Enemy" – is another fantastic one, with cool electric piano solos, great tenor work, and a slinkily vamping groove. LP, Vinyl record album

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".

AppleApple A Day (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Guerssen (Spain), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Tripped out, melodic and groovy pop psych from Apple – a great UK group that mixes accessible tunecraft with a rugged underbelly and just enough weirdness – their excellent Apple A Day album that's up there in greatness with some of Apple's much better remembered peers. As you might guess from a group called Apple, there's a plenty of period Beatles inspiration, but also harder UK bluesy psych sounds and otherwise edgier vibes. A nice one! Includes "Let's Take A Trip Down The Rhine", "Doctor's Rock", "The Otherside", "Mr. Jones", "Queen Of Hearts Blues", "Rock Me Baby", "Buffalo Billycan", "Psycho Daisies", "Pretty Girl I Love You" and more.

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLive At Mandel Hall ... LP
Delmark, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the best post-Paris live dates by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – recorded right on their southside home turf in Chicago, as something of a homecoming after their years abroad! The performance is really one continuous piece, divided up into chapters – and it starts off with an intensity that's bolder than much of the group's previous recordings – an almost-free sort of sound that's quite raw, and which must have been a great way to announce their presence back on the Chicago scene. As the piece moves on, it slows a bit in pace, and opens up more in mood – but always has an edge that's quite distinct – almost free of some of the wit that marked the Ensemble's work from a few years before. The core lineup features Lester Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn, Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman on saxes, Malachi Favors on bass, and Don Moye on drums and percussion – but as always, all players get their hands on plenty of other instruments during the performance – an array of horns, gongs, bells, whistles, bike horns, and more – all used to great effect! Sections of the work are titled "Duffvipels", "Checkmate", "Dautalty", and "Mata Kimasu". LP, Vinyl record album

Elmer BernsteinMovie & TV Themes Composed & Conducted By Elmer Bernstein ... LP
Choreo, 1962. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Elmer Bernstein serves up some of his most famous soundtrack themes – but in a style that's even more jazz-based than the original! The group here is a large one, filled with great west coast players – and Bernstein's tunes sparkle even more in this rich setting than they did in their initial use on film – partly because the presentation allows some musicians the chance to really open up and solo! The lineup features Bud Shank and Bob Cooper on saxes, Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpets, Milt Bernhart and Dick Nash on trombones, Bob Bain on guitar, Russ Freeman on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion – and titles include "Rat Race", "Three Time Blueser", "Hop Skip But Jump", "Jubilation", "Man With The Golden Arm", "Saints & Sinners", and "Sweet Smell Of Success".

Big MaybelleBig Maybelle – The Okeh Sessions ... LP
Okeh/Columbia, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A bit blues, a bit jazz – and a singer with a style unto her own – the amazing Big Maybelle, one of the greatest artists to record for Okeh Records in the 50s! This well-done collection pulls together every single Maybelle recorded for the R&B powerhouse back in the day – a motherlode of great work that easily puts her right up there with Lavern Baker or Ruth Brown as one of the great female singers of the 50s. The package features a whopping 22 tracks in all – including many bits that get lost between the tracks in some of the too-sifted collections of her work from the time. Titles include "Maybelle's Blues", "Hair Dressin Women", "My Big Mistake", "Ain't No Use", "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "So Good To My Baby", "Gabbin Blues", "You'll Never Know", and "New Kind Of Mambo".

Big MaybelleBlues, Candy, & Big Maybelle (80s pressing) ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The title kind of says it all – as the album's a set of 10 bluesy tracks by Maybelle, built around her perennial hit "Candy" – a sweet and dreamy tune that's been forever kept alive by her version! The style is very much in the vein of that hit, and other tunes on the album include "Ring Dang Dilly", "Blues Early Early", "Pitiful", "So Long", "Ramblin Blues", and "There I've Said It Again".

Big MaybelleLast Of Big Maybelle ... LP
Paramount, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
An unusual double-length album of tracks recorded by this bluesy soul singer in the years after she recorded for Savoy, and cut her big hit "Candy". 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".

James BrownSoul On Top ... LP
King, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
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)".

✨✧ Kenny BurrellTender Gender ... LP
Cadet, 1966. Very Good ... $6.99
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 stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Sonny ClarkCool Struttin' ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(200 gram pressing on Classic.)
