Archie Bell & The DrellsI Can't Stop Dancing ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
Fantastic work from Archie Bell & The Drells – an important record that bridges their earlier and later sounds! It's a key transitional album for the crew – as most of the album's in the harder rawer Texas funk groove of earlier year, but some of it features newer production by Gamble & Huff, in that excellent smooth dancing style that took Archie light years from his roots. The Gamble & Huff tracks are the most obvious – the singles "I Can't Stop Dancing" and "Do The Choo Choo" – and the album's got other great cuts like the original tunes "Do You Feel It?", "You're Such A Beautiful Child", "Jammin In Houston", and "Love Will Rain On You", plus versions of Curtis Mayfield's "I've Been Trying" and "Sometimes I Wonder".

William BellRelating ... LP
Stax, 1973. Very Good+ ... $29.99
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".

✨✧ Aaron BellAfter The Party's Over ... LP
RCA, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Madeline Bell recorded this mid-70s pop soul album after working with the British group Blue Mink for a number of years in the early 70s. Bell had begun her career on her own, with the hit "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me", and this album was a return to that style – and featured a number of different influences from contemporary 70s chart soul. Titles include "This Is The One Girl", "So In Love", "That's What Friends Are For", "Dance Dance Dance", and "I Think I'm Getting Over You". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best album of Christmas jazz you could ever buy! Why? Well, the record's totally hip – with way more going on than just the usual jazz versions of Christmas carols. But unlike other hip Christmas albums, this one also never loses the feeling of the season – and although the work is a bit more challenging than usual for a holiday album, it also always swings, and in a very festive style! Titles include "Deck The Halls" by Herbie Hancock, "Blue Xmas" by Bob Dorough and Miles Davis, "Winter Wonderland" by Chico Hamilton, "Jingle Bells" by Duke Ellington, "We Three Kings" by Paul Horn, "Deck Us All With Boston Charlie" by Lambert Hendricks & Ross, and "Rockin Around The Christmas Tree" by Marlowe Morris.

Fantasy, 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Burt BacharachLost Horizon – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Bell, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of Bacharach's strangest records! The soundtrack was written for the huge flop musical Lost Horizon – and it features all vocal tracks, sung by the likes of Shawn Phillips, Sally Kellerman, and Diana Lee. The overall feel is very sing-songy, with kind of a children's them sort of sound – but there's actually a few nuggets of great songwriting in here, especially on the tracks "The World Is A Circle" and "Living Together, Growing Together".

Giovanni FuscoLa Guerre Est Finie ... LP
Bell, 1966. Sealed ... $14.99
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.

Gary GlitterGary Glitter ... LP

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

Bell (France), 1973. Near Mint- ... $9.99
70s soundtrack work from the mighty Michel Legrand – his score for the famous Three Musketeers film directed by Richard Lester, and unissued music for the film Robin & Marian! 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.

✨✧ NirvanaStory Of Simon Simopath ... LP
Bell, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $199.99
Tremendous! This album is one of the few relics cut by the British group Nirvana – a late 60s ensemble that is not to be confused with the more famous Seattle one – a really cool combo who are way more than the usual pop psych of the time – and have so many great twists and turns of their own! The set's a brilliant batch of baroque and trippy tunes – presented as a "science fiction pantomime", but coming off more like a series of fab pop tunes that kind of crossup Brit Invasion and California Sunshine Pop sensibilities. The great Syd Dale (of KPM fame) handled the arrangements, so the album's got a nice extra-groovy punch – and titles include "We Can Help You", "Satellite Jockey", "Lonely Boy", "Wings Of Love", "In The Courtyard Of Stars", "You Are Just The One", and "Pentecost Hotel".

Now, you can only see him on the cover of this LP, a neat gatefold with a die-cut flap. Includes a surprising number of obscure tracks. And was the title track a commercial theme or something? We can't seem to remember. Other tracks include "The Candy Man", "Smiling", "Peaches & Cream", and "World Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Bell, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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".

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".

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

Dollar Brand/Johnny DyaniGood News From Africa ... LP
Enja, 1973. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful duets between pianist Dollar Brand and legendary bassist/Blue Notes member Johnny Dyani – two great South African jazz musicians who should have recorded more together in a format like this! Brand's open-ended rolling piano lines bring out the best in Dyani's bass – which at this point in his career, was not often heard in such an intimate setting, and was instead often hidden amidst larger more bombastic groupings of avant players – a shift in setting that really brings out some of the more spiritual currents in his music. The record features a version of Brand's excellent "The Pilgrim", plus the tracks "Msunduza", "Ntsikana's Bell", "Good News", and "Moniebah". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

DefunktThermonuclear Sweat ... LP
Hannibal, 1982. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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".

Wonderful rare work from The Delfonics – post-Bell recordings that still show the group at the top of their harmony game! The style here is somewhat more modern, but still plenty darn wonderful – with that sweetly crackling sound that's instantly recognizable on any Delfonics recording – produced and arranged beautifully by William Hart. 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!

A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! 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".

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".

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!

The Garland heard here is a gentler one than on his earlier recordings – playing with a nice Jamal-like sense of spacious exploration and mellow grooving. Tunes are mostly standards, but they're handled here in a manner that makes them feel much more like personal statements of expression than familiar chestnuts – and titles include "This Can't Be Love", "Misty", "But Not For Me", "Over The Rainbow", and "If I Were A Bell".

A heck of a soul jazz treasure from the 60s – and one of the hardest-hitting jazz albums ever issued by the Atlantic Records label! The vibe here is almost more Prestige Records overall – with very gutbuckety work from Johnny Griffin on tenor and Matthew Gee on trombone – on gritty tunes that snap along beautifully, and have Geen hitting some of the best tones he'd ever record – trombone that's maybe in the spirit of Bennie Green at his best. The combo also features Hank Jones on both piano and organ – plus Aaron Bell on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – and titles are nicely unusual, and include "Mood For Cryin", "The Swingers Get The Blues Too", "Twist City", "Oh Gee!", "Here", and "Renee".

One of the best-remembered soul soundtracks of the 70s – even if it's quite different than some of the bigger blacksploitation scores from the earlier part of the decade! Philly soul Thom Bell headed up the whole project – and he works here in a fantastic blend of swirling strings and grooves that were partially recorded at Sigma Sound, and which lay down a great core for the set! Bell wrote most of the material, and the main focus of the album is soul – as most tracks are vocal – with performances by Phyllis Hyman, The Spinners, The Sylvers, and The Four Tops! Almost all the material is in a Philly soul mode – and the record also features work by Bell & James, William Hart, and Frankie Bleu – on titles that include "Mighty Mighty Pisces", "No One Does It Better", "Magic Mona", "Theme For LAs Team", "Moses Theme", "Chance Of A Lifetime", and "The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh".

Guys & Dolls features the group offering up their unusual take on the songs from the hit musical of the same name – done in this swinging style that's mighty nice, often with a slightly witty presentation of the music as the vocals cascade along!

The title track, beautiful as it is, is so heavily ingrained into rock & roll myth making machine that it's become too easy to overlook how great most of the songs on the album are. It must be the most consistent of John's LPs post-Beatles, and it's just about as essential as they come. Co-produced by Phil Spector, yet it's often not as grandly orchestrated as a Wall Of Sound effort, and well tailored to Lennon's songs. Includes "Give Me Some Truth", "Oh My Love", "How Do You Sleep?", "Imagine", "Crippled Inside", "Jealous Guy" and "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Les BaxterHell's Belles ... LP
Sidewalk, 1969. Near Mint- (reissue)... $8.99
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50's/early 60's, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats! Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove" and "Scoobee Doo". The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy fuzzy guitar to go around nicely! A few tracks have vocals, but the instrumentals more than make up for any weak spots. Essential. LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue pressing.)
