Max Roach with Billy HarperLift Every Voice and Sing ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A beautiful blend of jazz, voices, and soul – a landmark record in Max Roach's vocal experimental tradition, and a fitting companion piece to Billy Harper's classic Capra Black album – an equally soulful blend of styles! Like Capra Black, this set features Harper's sharp and soulful tenor up against a choir of voices – blowing on hard-hitting soul jazz arrangements handled by Max Roach, of the style he used on some of his classic early 60s sides for Impulse and Candid. The tracks are long, Harper's in top form, and the group also includes Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet and George Cables on piano – ultra hip cats, always! Cuts include "Motherless Child", "Let Thy People Go", and "Troubled Waters. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing in the textured cover, with light wear, sticker spot, and partially removed promo sticker.)

Johnny MandelHarper ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $28.99
A hell of a soundtrack from the great Johnny Mandel – maybe his jazziest work of the 60s, and perfectly scored for this groovy cop film that stars Paul Newman as the 45-wielding title character! The vibe here is almost more 60s Quincy Jones than anything else – with sublime orchestrations from Dick Hazard, Bill Holman, and Billy Byers – which all have this great balance between swinging ensemble passages and standout solo instruments, including a sweet bit of Hammond. The record features two vocal tracks – "As Sure As You're Born" with lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman, and vocals by Sam Fletcher – "Quietly There", by Morgan Ames with vocals by Ruth Price – and instrumental titles include "Magnus Cum Louder", "Harper", "Harper's Ferry", "Mexican Breakfast", and "Bel Air". Also features the vocal track "Livin Alone" – written by Andre Previn, with lyrics by Dory Previn. LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing!)

✨✧ Charles EarlandCharles III ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Charles Earland – really stretching things out, and sounding great in the process! The album's an important one, as it shows that Earland wasn't just a funky Hammond player leading a small group – but a visionary player who could put together a session with a larger, cosmic concept. The album features an expanded horn section on most cuts, save for the smaller group "Speedball", which features excellent blowing by Lee Morgan and Billy Harper. Other players are all funky favorites from the Prestige years, and even the familiar numbers take on a whole new sound in this setting! Titles include "Charles III", "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind", "Auburn Delight", and "My Favorite Things". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing. Cover has some wear & split top and bottom seams.)

✨✧ Lee MorganLee Morgan (aka The Last Album) ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant work throughout – the last studio album ever cut by Lee Morgan, and a mindblowing session that always leaves us wondering how massive he would have become if he hadn't been tragically murdered shortly after it was recorded! The album's a huge change from Morgan's already-great work of the 60s – and features some very extended numbers, most a side long and these free-flowing numbers that are played by a larger group than usual – but with all the intensity and focus of a small group date from Lee! The set features key work from a young Billy Harper on tenor – especially on his own fantastic compositions "Capra Black" and "Croquet Ballet" – and for many folks, the record was a key introduction to Harper's genius. But the whole lineup is wonderful too – especially Harold Mabern on piano – and other titles include "In What Direction Are You Heading", "Angela", and "Inner Passions Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has light wear and a cut corner.)

✨✧ Bridgewater BrothersGenerations Suite ... LP
Denon (Japan), 1978. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A rare Japanese-only session from the incredible Bridgewater Brothers – and some of their best work of the 70s! The session features Cecil on trumpet, Ron on saxes – and a supporting group that includes Reggie Workman, Donald Smith, Hubert Eaves, and Michael Carvin. The feel of the material is similar to some of Billy Harper's best Japanese albums from the time – searching, in a post-Coltrane way, but never too indulgent, and always with a focus on strong, solid, soulful playing. Sections of the suite include "African Sunrise", "Sade", "Your Ballad", and "Samba Para Ustedos". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes obi!)

✨✧ Eddie GaleGhetto Music ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite all-time records, and a real lost album on Blue Note! Eddie Gale leads this group of righteous singers and musicians through five fantastic tracks of soulful chanting and hard jazz playing that never goes too far out, but always threatens to break free of its own chains – soaring to the skies on wings of freedom and spirituality! Gale's trumpet rings hard and loud, and the vocal arrangements never verge on sentimentality, but manage to convey a ton of soul with an incredibly righteous approach that's never been duplicated again! Imagine Donald Byrd's vocal group albums recorded for Strata East – or a hipper version of Billy Harper's Capra Black – and you've only got part of the picture! Titles include "The Rain", "Fulton Street", "The Comign Of Gwilu", and "A Walk With Thee". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram 4 Men With Beards pressing.)

✨✧ Max RoachMax Roach Quartet – Live In Tokyo Vol 1 ... LP
Denon (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from the ultra-hip Max Roach Quartet of the mid 70s – a lineup that features Billy Harper on tenor, Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, and Reggie Workman on bass! Tracks are long – very much in the Harper style of the time – and titles include "It's Time", "Calvary", and "Round Midnight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert!)
