Blood Sweat & Tears3 ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
A stone classic from Blood Sweat & Tears – and a record that went onto have a tremendous impact in jazz, rock, funk, and soul! The group's format is plenty darn famous – adding a lot of horns to hip riffing grooves – but despite countless plays on oldies stations over the years, this initial album still has a power that's undeniable – a way of putting the whole thing together that really uses the best elements of the late 60s studio – handled with sweet production from James William Guerico that rivals his best work for Chicago! Even the lead vocals by David Clayton Thomas hold up nicely – and the set includes the classics "Variations On A Theme By Eric Satie", "And When I Die", "Smiling Phases", "More & More", "Spinning Wheel", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears 4 ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
Okay, we admit it, we never really know whether we want to call Blood, Sweat & Tears a funky, soulful rock band, or a bunch of white guys making a respectable effort at curring soul albums, but either way, the stuff sounds good to us! By this point the group had enjoyed enough chart success to stretch out a bit, but their signature horn driven combination of bluesy rock bluster and heavily charted jazz voiced riffery is still in place. Includes "Go Down Gamblin'", "John The Baptist (Holy John)", "Redemption", "Lisa Listen To Me", "High On A Mountain", "Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)" and "Mama Gets High".

Blood Sweat & TearsOwl And The Pussycat ... LP
Columbia, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $8.99
A great soundtrack for a really stupid movie – featuring an amazing theme song! The soundtrack features some incredibly subdued work from Blood Sweat & Tears – playing in a laidback and jazzy mode that's like the best of Quincy Jones or Dave Grusin electric soundtrack of the time! The album also features some dialogue that comes in and out of the mix – which you can overlook – but the film's theme is more than enough reason to grab this one! (And by the way, you may know the tune from its redone version – as "Pussycat" by Black Sugar, from their first album.) LP, Vinyl record album

Cold BloodLydia ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the tightest albums ever cut by this San Francisco funk combo – one titled after their lead singer Lydia Pense, who'd become a much better vocalist by this point than she was on earlier efforts. The album's strongest point, though, is still the instrumentation – which is arranged and produced here by Steve Cropper with sort of a 70s Memphis groove, one that brings out the sharpest edges of the guitar and organ riffing. Titles include "Under Pressure", "Consideration", "Just Like Sunshine", "Ready To Live", "Simple Love Life", and "When My Love Hand Comes Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James Blood UlmerOdyssey ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of our favorite Ulmer records, probably because there's a nice groove running underneath most of the numbers, in a sort of post-Prime Time 80s out-funk sort of way. It never drops into a flat out back beat, but there's always some sense of time, while Ulmer's guitar and Charles Burnham's violin venture to and fro. The group is just a trio, and there's not too much of Blood's vocalizing going on on the eight pieces, which include "Little Red House", "Are you Glad To Be In America", "Election" and "Odyssey".

✨✧ Thing & James Blood UlmerBaby Talk – Live At Molde International Jazz Festival 2015 (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Thing (Austria), 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Over the years, the mighty Thing trio has turned out to be a wonderfully collaborative group – and here they join forces with legendary guitarist James Blood Ulmer, who may well be serving up one of his best performances in years! The unbridled energy of the core group is well-known – drums from Paal Nilssen-Love, bass from Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, and baritone and tenor from Mats Gustafsson – who's pictured perfectly on the cover, caught in the moment of one of his joyous expressions! Ulmer's of an earlier generation than the musicians, but fits in well – and they, in turn, know when to back off a bit and allow his complicated flurries of tones to get just the right sort of space in the spotlight. Titles include "Baby Talk", "High Yellow", "Proof", and "Interview". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? (UK pressing) ... LP
Rough Trade (UK), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic bit of Black Rock from James Blood Ulmer – and a record that was issued by Rough Trade in the UK, giving it a surprising influence on the post-punk scene of the time! In a way, Ulmer's groove here has a lot of punky-funk in the mix – thanks to some heavy electric bass from Amin Ali, and tight drumming from Ronald Shannon Jackson. The horns sneak in and out of the rhythms next to Ulmer's sometimes heavy guitar work – and players include David Murray, Oliver Lake, and Olu Dara – all grooving in a frenetic sound that's a key link between the New York downtown and UK post-punk scenes! Titles include "See Through", "TV Blues", "Time Out", "Jazz Is The Teacher (Funk Is the Preacher)", "Interview", "Pressure", and "Layout". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James Blood UlmerTales Of Captain Black ... LP
Artists House, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album of the New York downtown scene – and one of the most groundbreaking guitar jazz albums of the 70s! James Blood Ulmer plays here with members of Ornette Coleman's group of the time – including Ornette himself, Denardo Coleman, and Jaamaladeen Tacuma. The style is very similar to that of Ornette's excellent Body Meta album – a mode that has the rhythms all turned inside themselves, using guitar as strongly as drums – in a style that's one of the most perfect visions of Coleman's harmelodic mode. The overall vibe is very Ornette-ish, but still also features plenty of great offbeat work by Ulmer on guitar – and titles include "Moons Shines", "Morning Bride", "Nothing To Say", and "Revealing".

✨✧ James Blood UlmerFreelancing ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A major label set, but one that stays very true to the new ideals that James Blood Ulmer was trying to bring to jazz guitar at the time – a really revolutionary style that moves beyond simple genre conventions, and embraces a whole world of new ideas that would inspire others in the decade to come! Ulmer plays with a real frenzy at points – deep currents that reflect the bluesy touches of his early work in jazz organ combos, but given a skittish energy that reflects his association with the downtown crowd – and which was very fitting for his record with Rough Trade! The core group here features James, bassist Amin Ali, and drummer G Calvin Weston – and some tracks feature work from David Murray on tenor, Oliver Lake on alto, and Olu Dara on trumpet. Titles include "Timeless", "Pleasure Control", "Night Lover", "Happy Time", "Rush Hour", "Stand Up To Yourself", and "High Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio CiprianiEcologia Del Delitto (Bay Of Blood) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... About October 5, 2017 (delayed)
One of the coolest 70s soundtracks from the great Stelvio Cipriani – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The music here was scored for a Mario Bava horror film, but it often has a quality that's more lean and lovely overall – that current of sex that we always love in Ciprani's best work, and which made him a key force for transforming the Italian bossa and jazz soundtrack style of the 60s into something completely new for the 70s! There's a lot of sweet keyboards in the music – as you'd expect from Stelvio – but there's also some cool rootsy percussion, which creates a nice juxtaposition between acoustic and electric, especially as things get a bit spookier near the end. Titles include "Ultimo Atto", "Solitudine Di Simone", "Teenagers Cha Cha Cha", "Due Amanti", "Evelyn Theme", "Shake Giradischi", and "Un Cadavere Nel Lago". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousStudio One Scorcher – Instrumentals ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Solid!! 19 burning shots of prototypical island jams! The sounds of Studio One have been passed down from generation to generation of musicians, even being sampled by some of today's digital producers, and recut in version after version, and with their series of Studio One reissues, Soul Jazz illustrates why. Coxsonne Dodd was not only a genius producer of rhythms, but assembled some of the finest musicians not just on the island, but anywhere in the world to cut these mighty tracks, including the Skatalites "Coconut Rock", Cedric Im Brooks "Mun-Dun-Gu", Tommy McCook "Shocker's Rock", Jackie Mittoo & Ernest Ranglin "Jerico Skank", Karl Bryan & Teh Afrokats "Money Generator", Lester Sterling "Afrikaan Beat", Sound Dimension "Heavy Rock", Sugar Belly "In Cold Blood", Soul Bros "Bugaloo", Vin Gordon 'Red Blood", Pablove Black "Push Pull" and Karl Bryan & Count Ossie "Black Up".

Horace AndyGood Vibes (with bonus tracks) ... LP
17 North Parade (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... About November 10, 2017
Sweet! – we can't get enough of Horace Andy's sweet falsetto keening over these chugging, fat rhythms! A tremendous set of sides Andy cut in the mid-70s, packaged together with a few of the cuts in dub versions. While Andy cut many seminal sides for Coxsonne Dodd's Studio One, this work, some of it in collaboration with the great Bunny Striker Lee, stands among his best. Here he reworks the Studio One classic "Skylarking" as a "Better Version" with Lee, and there's a number of pieces cut at Tubby's with the aid of Prince Jammy (who contributed a nice sound to the In the Light set, also issued by Blood & Fire), like the massive "Pure Ranking" in it's full 8+ minute 12" disco mix version. Also includes the "Dub Vibes" version of the title track, and "Mr. Bassie" & "Reggae Rhythm - It's Gone International". LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur BlytheIllusions ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Maybe the boldest of Arthur Blythe's albums for Columbia Records – as the set bristles with newly creative energy right from the start, and provides a great showcase for some of the criss-crossings of styles and rhythms that were taking place on the New York scene at the time! The lineup alone announces something special – a cool combination of James Blood Ulmer on guitar, John Hicks on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, Abdul Wadud on cello, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Steve McCall on drums – working together in some slight variations at times, often with these angular edges that are perfectly sharpened by Arthur's amazing work on alto sax. The music's never too free, but quite outside for a major label at the time – balanced out so that it's never overindulgent at all. Titles include "Bush Baby", "Miss Nancy", "My Son Ra", and "Carespin With Mamie". LP, Vinyl record album

Cody ChestnuttMy Love Divine Degree ... LP
Hand Written, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 37.99
Divine sounds from the mighty Cody Chestnutt – a singer who's come a long way from both his Headphone Masterpiece album, and the long drought that followed that classic set! Cody's very firmly back in the driver's seat – and he's working strongly to remind folks that fuzzy, abstract soul was a genre he virtually invented – unafraid to let the beats and crispy bits in the mix get equal space alongside his vocals, sometimes turning the bottom up top, and really letting the songs find their flow! Yet the lyrics are also more important than before, too – filled with a sense of message that really shows a maturing side of the singer, and a willingness to answer some of the struggles that might not have touched him as strongly before. Cody still may be one of the most understated singers in soul music – but he's also got this subtle power that just seems to get better as the years move on – and maybe even a bit more collaborative here, as the album features some contributions from artists who include Raphael Saadiq and Twilite Tone. Titles include "Africa The Future", "Anything Can Happen", "I Stay Ready", "Image Of Love", "Have You Heard Anything From The Lord Today", "Shine On The Mic", "This Green Leaf", "It's In The Love", "Always Sebrena", "So Sad To See A Lost Generation", "Bullets In The Street & Blood", and "Make A Better Man".

Stelvio CiprianiGli Orrori Del Castello Di Norimberga (picture disc) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... About November 9, 2017
A horror soundtrack for the Mario Bava classic Baron Blood – but one that's done with some groovier touches than you might expect! Maestro Stelvio Cipriani handled the work for the score – and although he definitely brings in all the right dark edges for the narrative, he also sprinkles the tunes with some of his cooler styles of the period – similar to his music for action and erotic films of the time! There's plenty of dramatic moments, but we especially like the way they're offset by Stelvio's inherent sense of warmth and spacing – which keeps the whole thing from just becoming another familiar experiment in arch sounds. Titles include "Ipnosi", "Inseguita", "Eva E Peter", "Il Barone E Fuga Di Eva", "La Bambina E Il Castello", "Macabro Maniero", and "Visitando Mr Becker". LP, Vinyl record album

A true masterpiece for The Cure – possibly their best ever! Robert Smith and company had flirted with moody pop before, but they really hone in on that with Head On The Door, and it's as essential as anything they'll ever do – a knockout from the the opening seconds of "In Between Days" to the closing seconds of "Sinking". Everything is firmly in place here – improving on the global eclecticism of their previous album The Top on cuts like "Kyoto Song" and "The Blood", more compelling melodicism on "Six Different Ways", the perfect avant pop of "Close To Me"... wow, this record! Indispensable all the way. Other tracks include "The Baby Screams", "Push", "A Night Like This" and "Screw". LP, Vinyl record album

Francesco De Masi7 Hyden Park – La Casa Maledetta ... LP
Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Lots of cool keyboards from Francesco De Masi – served up in a style that's a lot more 80s than his famous earlier work – almost as if Francesco was trying trying to get in with the younger horror soundtrack generation! The style is still great, though – with sounds that show all of De Masi's rich understanding of broader instrumental arrangements – which sometimes factor into the music, but which also seem to emanate from his keyboards even when they're in the lead. The music has a nice current of warmth from time to time – not just the starkness of the usual electric keyboard score, which makes for a very rich vibe to the whole record! Titles include "House In The Park", "Dreadful Cellar", "Twisted Mind", "Fear & Blood", "Girl & Violence", "So Many Corpses", and "Handicapped Girl". Wow – creepy song titles! LP, Vinyl record album

Dupree himself sings and plays piano – often with plenty of rootsy currents – but the combo also features excellent alto from Pete Brown, who adds in plenty of soul – as well as Ennis Lowery on guitar, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Willie Jones on drums. All tracks are credited to Jack, but there's more than a few here that are traditional, and just given new arrangements by Dupree – and titles include "Strollin", "Stack-O-Lee", "Frankie & Johnny", "Bad Blood", "Junker's Blues", "Evil Woman", and "Can't Kick The Habit".

Wow, that's quite a cover from this German group of the 70s – and fortunately, their sound is strong enough to make the record stand strong way past the goofy gimmick on the front! These guys are totally great – kind of like a funky version of Blood Sweat & Tears, which is saying a lot, as BS&T were always pretty funky to begin with – but Emergency strip down the sound even more, by mixing tight drums and bass with some soaring solos on tenor, soprano, and baritone sax – and nice use of keyboards and a variety of percussion alongside the vocals! The tunes are all nicely grooving, and surprisingly soulful – and the English language lyrics only further the funky elements on the set.

Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Far-reaching sounds from The Flock – a group who were maybe one of the best American acts at the end of the 60s to blend trippy rock with the big new wave of jazz fusion! These guys definitely use horns in a way that link them to the chunky groove of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat & Tears – but they're also clearly going for a more long-haired vibe, too – especially when they open up on some acoustic stringed instrumentation – such as 12-string guitar or violin, both of which are handled by Jerry Goodman in a really great way! These instruments really shape some of the sound of the set – especially the violin when it's used in these freewheeling passages that might give Jean-Luc Ponty a run for his money – but there's also a core, tight soulful sound that balances things out nicely – as does some of the heavy drums and fuzzy guitar! Titles include "Clown", "I Am The Tall Tree", "Store Bought Store Thought", and "Truth" – plus a very cool funky cover of The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's all-instrumental, and has Weldon really taking off on the keyboards – not just using them for main solos, but also dropping in cool noisy bits and analogue effects that really sound great – almost out-Herbieing Herbie Hancock for the record, and turning in some of his biggest classics on wax!

MGM, Early 70s. Sealed ... $7.99
A weird assortment of tunes from a variety of artists – designed to accompany what looks like a pretty stoned-out film! Most tracks on here are rock or vocal numbers, a variety of covers and originals that include "Nobody Knows" by Bill Medley, "Magic Mountain" by Eric Burdon & War, "Water" by Michael Greer, "Funny How It Happens" by Stilroc, "Sound Of Love" by Angeline Butler, and "Sweet Gingerbread Man" and "Happy Together" by The Mike Curb Congregation. Those are all fine, but the really wonderful track on the record is "Blood" by David Lucas – a very trippy instrumental that begins tight and funky, with lots of bass/drum/guitar grooving, plus nice use of vibes, and which then goes really over the top near the end and gets way fuzzed out and messed up!

A great and hard to find side, with bass whiz Jaco meeting up with Pat Metheny, Bruce Ditmas and Paul Bley. Bley plays electric piano, so his tones match with the electric guitar and bass, and the set bristles with energy, and casts all the players in a different light than the work they became most well known for. Jaco is definitely flexing his chops, but there's still a sense of restraint that lacks a bit in some of his later recordings, and the tunes by Bley, Carla Bley, and Annette Peacock cast both him and Metheny into a freer sounding realm than you typically hear them. 9 tracks in all, though a number of the songs on side two are very short.

One of the last John Patton albums for Blue Note, and one of the best. A young James "Blood" Ulmer's on guitar, and Marvin Cabell (who we only know from Patton LPs) is on tenor and flute. The sound is deep and soulful, and despite the "accent on the blues" of the title, the feel's more blue note than bluesy. Great versions of Harold Mabern's "Rakin' & Scrapin" and Eddie Harris' "Freedom Jazz Dance", plus some excellent originals by Cabell. LP, Vinyl record album
(90s pressing. Cover has some sticker remnants.)

PuzzlePuzzle ... LP
Motown, 1973. Sealed ... $11.99
Who are these guys? They're actually pretty great – a jazz rock group with some nice soulful influences, sounding better than you'd expect for such an ensemble. Tracks have a sound that's somewhere in the Blood Sweat & Tears/Chicago vein – but lighter, with more of a west coast jazzy finish. Titles include "Suite Delirium", "Brand New World", "On With The Show", "Lady", and "The Grosso". LP, Vinyl record album

Roger (Roger Troutman)Saga Continues ... LP
Warner, 1984. Sealed ... $7.99
Crisply popping grooves from Roger – a great solo record from the voice of Zapp! The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth bursts – sailing in a killer groove throughout! Roger produced the record along with Larry Troutman – and they bring in Maceo Parker for a horn solo and Ohio Player Billy Beck for keyboards as well! Tracks include a vocoder funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", plus "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar Brother Roger", "The Break Song", "I Keep Trying", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song", and "Girl Cut It Out".

✨✧ BloodstoneUnreal ... LP
London, 1973. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Excellent spacey soul from Bloodstone – one of the early 70s best crossover groups! The band has a nice mellow sound, mixed with some elements of uptempo production, and kind of a slightly funky ensemble feel. There's also some of the best elements of that east coast early 70s sound – like electric sitar, soaring strings, and weird spacey instrumentation that drifts in and out of the vocal passages. Titles include "What You Did To Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Outside Woman", "Let Me Ride", "Traffic Cop", and "Keep Our Own Thing Together". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole and promo sticker.)

✨✧ VariousNorthern & Rare Soul Collector – Together For The First Time – Originally Unreleased ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set of rare soul from the glory days of the Northern Soul years – and even more amazing because none of these tunes were ever issued at the time! Yet these aren't second-hand cuts that have lain in the vaults, nor the dregs of good recording sessions – and instead, these are killer tracks that finally saw the light of day on various reissues over the decades – years after their conception, but with enough space to have gotten them plenty of spins on later generations of Northern Soul dancefloors. The work is all wonderful – really top-shelf material that's right up there with Detroit or Philly classics – often recorded by artists you'll know from other great singles too. Titles include "Push A Little Harder" by The Metros, "Honey Please Stay" by United Four, "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" by Lonnie Youngblood, "I Wish You The World Of Happiness" by Shirley Turner, "I'm Not Afraid" by Sharon Scott, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "It's Torture" by Maxine Brown, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Hey Girl" by Porgy & The Monarchs.

✨✧ Alpha BlondyJerusalem ... LP
Shanachie, 1986. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Afro reggae Great Alpha Blondy fulfills his dream of performing with The Wailers! The best of the tracks, especially the title track, is quite wonderful – with great vocals throughout by Alpha Blondy. A few tunes have a drum machine, grounding the atmosphere of those numbers squarely in the mid 80s, but the other tracks are timeless. A worthy effort overall, and titles include "Jerusalem", "Polituqui", "Bloodshed In Africa", "I Love Paris", "Kalachnikov Love", "Travailler C'est Trop Dur", "Miwa" and "DJI". LP, Vinyl record album

Donald ByrdHouse Of Byrd ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Two nice Prestige blowing sessions from the 50s – featuring Donald Byrd right up front. The first LP of the set was issued as Two Trumpets with Art Farmer joining Byrd, set in a sextet with Jackie McLean, Doug Watkins, Barry Harris, and Art Taylor. The harder sound of Byrd is a nice mix with the lyricism of Farmer, and the open-ended nature of the set lets them get a bit more open in their solos than usual. 5 numbers are included: "Contour", "Round Midnight", "The Third", "When Your Lover Has Gone" and "Dig". The second set was issued as The Young Bloods, with Byrd accompanied by sidemen he's not often heard with, Phil Woods, Al Haig, Teddy Kotick and Charlie Persip. Like the first side, it's a rousing set of bop, played with a great deal of fire. 6 numbers make up that set, including "Dewey Square", "Dupeltook", "Once Moore", "House Of Chain", "In Walked George" and "Lover Man".

Vic CaesarBare Knuckles – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Gucci, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 16.98
A long lost electric funk soundtrack for the grindhouse also-ran Bare Knuckles – full of wild, funky organ riffing, heavy drums and chicken scratch guitar! The flick is one of those sleazy 70s monstrosities full of motorcycle chases, bloody fist fights, and butt ugly guys who get the girls anyway – ripe material for a wildly funky soundtrack! We don't know details of the sessions or the players involved, but the sound is pure late 70s gritty organ and drums funk – one that would fit a blaxploitation flick, a badly dubbed kung fu cheapie or silly revenge flick! Tracks include "Bare Knuckles", "Shake Down", "Gonna Getcha", "Loving You", "Essex Exit", "Charing Cross", "Loving You Too", "Bare Knuckle Blues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art FarmerSomething To Live For ... LP
Contemporary, 1987. Very Good+ ... $5.99
An unexpected treasure – like so many of Art Farmer's later albums! The record is ostensibly a tribute to the music of Billy Strayhorn – which might make us expect some soporific Ellington cliches – but the session's really just a small group one, played by Art with a quintet that includes Clifford Jordan, James Williams, Rufus Reid, and Marvin Smitty Smith – all coming together in a fluidly soulful style that's really great. Farmer's work on flugelhorn seems even more inventive than ever – and titles include "Bloodcount", "Johnny Come Lately", "Isfahan", "Raincheck", and "Upper Manhattan Medical Group".
