BB King & Bobby BlandTogether For The First Time – Live ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A mid 70s meeting of two seminal blues talents from the Memphis scene – singer Bobby Blue Bland, and legendary guitarist BB King! The pair were both working for ABC at the time – major label fame after years woodshedding in the indies – and hitting well-deserved fame for their huge talents – still as fresh here as they were a decade before, and unmarred by any studio sanitization in this great live set! The record does an especially good job of bringing together the artists verbally – letting Bobby and BB open up and rap a bit during the songs – yet still having plenty of space to go into their own thing musically, too. Titles include "It's My Own Fault", "I'll Take Care Of You", "I'm Sorry", "3 O'Clock Blues", "Goin Down Slow", and a great long Medley track. LP, Vinyl record album

James Brown, Vicki Anderson, Bobby Byrd, etcJames Brown Presents His Show Of Tomorrow ... LP
King, Late 60s. Good+ ... $9.99
A rare rare James Brown killer! At the end of the 60s, James presents his "Show Of Tomorrow" – a host of great talents that virtually form the blueprint for the funky People Records sound of the early 70s! The set's a great collection of rare work by some of the best talents ever associated with James – and titles include "Funky Soul #1 (parts 1 & 2)" by Bobby Byrd, "Which Way Should I Turn" and "Funky Soul Train" by Hank Ballard, "If You Love Me" & "What Kind Of Man" by Marva Whitney, "Tears Of Joy" and "If You Don't Give Me What I Want" by Vicki Anderson, and "I'll Work It Out" and "Stone Fox" by James Crawford.

Bobby Byrd & James BrownYou've Got To Change Your Mind/I'll Lose My Mind ... 7-inch
King, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Great track! "You've Got To Change Your Mind" is a great duet between Bobby and James. It's got a totally catchy hook, and a nice rolling groove that's extremely satisfying. James beats Bobby in the vocal department, but Bobby adds a nice bit of soul in the mix. The flipside's a great track, too – and is a mellow soul track by Bobby solo, with an intro that might just be the strangest 10 seconds of soul production ever on record! 7-inch, Vinyl record

George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Bobby ByrdI Need Help ... LP
Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The stunning only album ever from the great Bobby Byrd – know to many as a longtime associate of James Brown, and finally getting his chance to shine here in the spotlight! Bobby was in the game before James, and always continued to change his groove in all the right ways with The Godfather – so this late 60s recording has Byrd coming across just like the best last James Brown material on King – with production from James, and backing from the same group too! There's loads of classics here that went onto become huge funky 45s over the years – and big sample cuts too – and titles include "I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone) (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul", "My Concerto", "You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat)", and "Hang Ups We Don't Need (The Hungry We've Got To Feed)".

BB KingHis Best – The Electric BB King ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
BB King at his late 60s best – working here in the company of producers Johnny Pate and Quincy Jones, and serving up a great blend of blues and soul in the process! The set's less a "best of", than a collection of ABC work that doesn't seem to be on the other full albums of the time – mostly produced by Johnny Pate, with those great Chicago soul touches that helped his work with King really cross new boundaries – and finally give BB the kind of full, forceful approach that Bobby Blue Bland had been getting for years. The Quincy Jones cuts are two from the soundtrack to For Love Of Ivy – both pretty groovy, with a socking soul punch – and titles on the full album include "Tired Of Your Jive", "Don't Answer The Door", "The BB Jones", "Paying The Cost To Be The Boss", "All Over Again", "I Don't Want You Cutting Off Your Hair", "Sweet Sixteen", "Meet My Happiness", and "You Put It On Me".

BB KingMr Blues ... LP
ABC, 1963. Very Good+ ... $14.99
BB King's soaring debut LP for ABC Records – a mix of grand numbers that find the legendary BB backed up in surprisingly soulful orchestra settings culled from bicoastal sessions in LA and NYC! BB King has a signature style that's pretty strongly rooted in homespun, truthspeaking rhythm & blues – and the strings, saxes and rich arrangements with the Belford Hendricks Orchestra, Maxwell Davis Orchestra, and Teacho Wiltshire Orchestra – captured in '62 and '63 – are just a step or two away from the groove that cats like Bobby Bland were working at the time. Sweet stuff from a true King! Titles include "Young Dreamers", "Be Myself", "Chains Of Love", "Blues At Midnight", "Sneakin' Around", "Tomorrow Night", "My Baby's Comin' Home", "Guess Who?", "You Ask Me", "I'm Gonna Sit In 'Til You Give In".

Augustus PabloKing Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown – Deluxe Edition ... CD
Shanachie, 1975. Used ... $6.99
Essential dub material from the legendary King Tubby – a set that's one of the best of the genre during the classic years – and which stands as a true testament to how great the format can be when handled right! The watchword here is simplicity – as the key elements are almost isolated in little sonic chambers, then set to resonate alongside each other – pulled from rhythms from tracks initially done as vocal productions, but reworked through the mixing talents of Erroll "ET" Thompson and Tubby. Players include Bobby Ellis on trumpet, Richard "Dirty Harry" Hall on tenor, and Augustus Pablo on organ and piano, plus a bit of clarinet. Titles include "Keep On Dubbing", "Stop Them Jah", "Young Generation Dub", "Each One Dub", "555 Dub Street", "Braces Tower Dub", "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown", "Corner Crew Dub", "Say So", "Skanking Dub", and "Frozen Dub".

✨✧ Bobby ByrdHelp For My Brother – The Pre-Funk Singles 1963 to 1968 ... CD
BGP (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from Bobby Byrd – the man who was literally standing in the shadow of James Brown during the 60s – given how many times Bobby appeared with James on stage, and worked with him in the studio! Yet despite that near-lifetime association with The Godfather, Bobby's a hell of a singer on his own – definitely in the JB mold, but with a voice that can sometimes sweetly crackle in a very personal style – and also open up into different themes that sometimes move his music more towards Stax or Atlantic than some of James' King Records material from the time! All that range and plenty more is presented here – in an overlooked side of Bobby's career – all the wonderfully strong solo tracks he recorded with James Brown as a producer – issued in the mid 60s by the Smash and King Records labels, and a hell of a discography on its own. In fact, had Byrd not worked with James, we'd maybe guess that he would have hit even bigger fame on his own with these singles – such is the quality in both the vocals and overall presentation. This is the first time this material has ever been pulled together like this – and most of it has never been reissued at all – and the 24 track CD is overflowing with great notes that also give Bobby his due. Titles include "Write Me A Letter", "I Found Out", "Ain't No Use", "I'm Just A Nobody (parts 1 & 2)", "Lost In The Mood Of Changes", "You're Gonna Need My Lovin", "Let Me Know", "Time Will Make A Change", "No One Like My Baby", "Funky Soul (parts 1 & 2)", "You Gave Me Heart A Song To Sing", "My Concerto", and "I'm Lonely".

✨✧ BB KingBack In The Alley – The Classic Blues Of BB King (aka Blues Is King) ... LP
Bluesway, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 60s set from Memphis bluesman BB King – but one put together with a very distinct Chicago touch as well! The set's produced by Johnny Pate, and recorded live with a vibe that's similar to King's classic recording at The Regal – but it's almost got even more of a soulful punch, thanks to backing from a cool small combo that includes Bobby Forte on tenor, Kenneth Sands on trumpet, Duke Jethro on Hammond, and Louis Satterfield on bass! BB's vocals are great – in his best early form – and the tunes are bluesy, but also smoke with a nice degree of soul – and almost some jazzy touches at times from the tenor and organ. Titles include "Don't Answer The Door", "Blind Love", "Tired Of Your Jive", "Night Life", "Buzz Me", and "Waitin On You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby KeysBobby Keys ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really cool album from saxophonist Bobby Keys – a record with no vocals at all, just Bobby's solos – but a set that's maybe better tagged as instrumental rock than jazz, given the heavyweight guest musicians in the lineup! Keys blows with an all-star array of talent from the rock scene of the time – including Jack Bruce and Felix Pappalardi on bass, Leslie West and Dave Mason on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, and Ringo Starr on drums – plus a bit more guitar from George Harrison, too! Yet what's great about the record is that all these talents put aside their ego and follow Bobby's lead – in a groove that's maybe a bit southern soul, a bit down-home rock – with some definite currents of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the music. Titles include "Crispy Duck", "Steal From A King", "Bootleg", "Smokefoot", "Altar Rock", "Command Performance", and "Sound & Foam". CD

✨✧ Bobby LanceFirst Peace/Rollin Man ... CD
Cotillion/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of overlooked gems from Atlantic Records artist Bobby Lance – back to back on a single CD! First up is First Peace, the debut album from Bobby Lance – one of the great southern-styled rockers of the 70s – and like most of the best, an artist with a heck of a lot of soul in his sound! The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, with a very soul-based pedigree that also includes work from King Curtis on tenor, Eddie Hinton on guitar, Barry Beckett on keyboards, Roger Hawkins on drums, and even The Sweet Inspirations on vocals – all elements that give the music a similar shape to some of the best Atlantic Records soul albums of the time, while Bobby delivers some heartfelt, blue-eyed vocals. Titles are all originals – and include "Somebody Tell Me", "More Than Enough Rain", "I May Not Have Enough Time", "One Turn You're In One Turn You're Out", and "Shake Down Blues". Rollin Man is a record that has Bobby Lance looking a lot more long-haired than before – a set that was recorded up in the Atlantic Records studios up north, but with a sound that still has plenty of the same southern elements of Lance's debut – including some burning organ lines that really work great with the deeper, more sophisticated style of Bobby's music. There's less easy soul elements here, and instead this really compelling fusion of redneck rock and more sophisticated singer-songwriter modes – with Bobby even more fully-voiced and confident than ever – on titles that include "Hot Wood & Coal", "She Made Me A Man", "John The Rollin Man", "He Played The Reals", "Tribute To A Woman", and "Something Unfinished".

Landmark, 1991. Used ... $9.99
Sure it's not the Blue Note years, but this is an excellent late set by Byrd that shows he was still one hell of a leader! Byrd's at the head of a strong group that includes Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Joe Henderson on tenor, Donald Brown on piano, and Rufus Reid on bass – and the tracks are a blend of modal and soul jazz styles, awash with color and warmth, really stretching past earlier work by Byrd. Lorice Stevens sings soprano vocals on two tracks – "A City Called Heaven" and "Remember Me" – and the other tracks include "Del Valle", "King Arthur", "Not Necessarily The Blues", and "Buck Down In Lu Easy Anna".

The blend of lightness and depth here is wonderful – a nice change from the usual underground soul material, as is Charlotte's lyrical approach – almost as lightly poetic as her voice, but more solid too – with a vibe that's completely unique, and which (we hope!) means that we'll be hearing plenty from her in years to come! The album's got this wonderful recasting of Freddie Hubbard's classic "Red Clay" – plus the tracks "Summer Is Icumen In", "Good Sign", "King Of Hearts", "It's Over Bobby", "Watching You", and "Move On".

Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 1 – 1964/1965 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $48.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. First volume features 50 great tracks that include "Baby Girl (part 1)" by Titus Turner, "Please Don't Leave Me" by The Drapels, "That's The Way That It Goes" by Bobby Marchan, "Mary Lou You Can Do The Bumble Bee" by Deanie Parker, "Gotta Find A Way" by Theresa Lindsay, "One More Chance" by Doris Troy, "Daddy Woo Woo" by The Vibrations, "Slumber Party" by The Van Dells, "Someday We're Gonna Love Again" by Barbara Lewis, "Reconsider Baby" by Al King, "Shake Up" by The Cobras, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "That's When It Hurts" by Ben E King, "Don't Make Something Out Of Nothing" by William Bell, "You Never Know How Much I Love You" by Oscar Mack, "Closer To My Baby" by Dorothy Williams, "The Last Girl" by The Isley Brothers, "Don't Leave Me" by The Crume Brothers, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "Take The Boy Out Of The Country" by Linda Jones, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Wild One" by The Coasters, "Yes I Do" by Solomon Burke, "Something In My Eye" by Music City Soul Brothers, "Young Man" by The Drapels, "Watchdog" by Dorothy Williams, "Romance In The Dark" by Jimmy Ricks, "Please Be Honest With Me" by Barbara & The Browns, "I'm Taking Back My Love" by Linda Jones, "Young & Foolish" by Wendy Rene, "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "I Want To Get Married" by Rufus Thomas, "I Left There Running Because Walking Was Much Too Slow" by Chuck Bradford, and "Big Party" by Barbara & The Browns.

Atlantic/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Excellent rare soul from Atlantic – and a very different side of the label's output! The focus here is on tracks that are a bit more sophisticated than the hits – not really mellow, as most of the numbers are very nice groovers, but just with a twist that sets them apart from some of the label's other material. The 25-track set begins with a previously unissued gem from Ben E King – "Getting To Me", which has some of the most amazing arrangements we've heard on his records – and the collection follows with an equally great batch of lesser-known cuts from the legendary soul label – really wonderful all the way through, and handled with the usual Kent Records excellent notes and sound quality. Other titles include "Sly Girl" by Derek Martin, "My Love Is Getting Stronger" by Cliff Nobles, "Here Come The Tears" by Darrell Banks, "You My Love" by Tami Lynn, "Across The Street" by Lenny O'Henry, "Come On Baby & Hurt Me" by Naomi & Harris, "New Day Begins" by Parliaments, "Find Me Somebody" by Bobby Womack, "Got To Get You Back" by Johnny Newbag, "Suffering City" by Johnny Copeland, "Where Did I Go Wrong" by The Embers, and "Thank You John" by Willie Tee.

Funky People, 1960s/1970s. Very Good ... $9.99
It's The Godfather's world and we just live in it – but that's fine with us, because over the years, James Brown has given us more funky reasons to exist than anyone else we can think of! This set's filled with 11 of those reasons – all rare tunes produced or penned by James Brown, and recorded by members of his funky family of the late 60s and early 70s. A number of the tracks appeared on Brown's legendary People label – but others came out on King, Polydor, or other related imprints. There's a great mix here of funk and hard soul – with plenty of surprising grooves that will leave you wondering just how much time Brown must have spent in the studio recording all this stuff! Titles include "There Was A Time" by The Dapps with Pee Wee Ellis, "Stand Up & Be Counted" by The Flames, "You're So Sexy" by Hank Ballard with The Dapps, "If I Had A Man Like You" by Shirley Jean & The Relations, "Just As Sure" by Dizzy Jones, "Doin The Doo" by Bobby Byrd, "Tutti Frutti" by Lee Austin, "Daddy Don't Know About Sugar Bear" by Marva Whitney, "Soul Food" by Al Brisco Clark, and "Baby Don't You Know" by The Brownettes.

Landmark, 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Bobby Hutcherson – easily one of his best of the 80s, and with some great touches that recall his best 70s work! The album title might fool you into thinking that Bobby's working in Charlier Parker territory here – but he's not, and is instead grooving in a mellow and soulful west coast mode – working with a totally great group that includes Ralph Moore on tenor and soprano sax, Buddy Montgomery on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The whole album's a magical picture of tone, color, and light – but the especially standout track is "Sierra" – a totally killer number that has these arch angles and edges that rival the best sounds heard on Hutcherson's Montara album! Other titles include "On The Delta", "Crusisin The Bird", "Imminent Treasures", and "All Or Nothing At All". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby BradfordLove's Dream (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Emanem (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Seminal sounds from cornet player Bobby Bradford – a date recorded in the UK in the early 70s, but with all the free-thinking and imaginative energy as his best sessions in LA! The group pits Bobby's horn against three young modernists – Trevor Watts on alto and soprano sax, Kent Carter on bass, and John Stevens on drums – all working in these long-flowing, very rhythmic numbers that lie somewhere between Bradford's work with John Carter, and the early 60s sound of Ornette Coleman. The alto/cornet interplay is especially nice – very mesmerizing over the course of the album's very long tracks – and Watts turns out to be a great musical partner for Bobby. Titles include "Love's Dream", "Coming On", and "Roswita's Dance". CD features bonus tracks ""She", "HM Louis 1", and an alternate take of "Coming On". CD

Bobby Bradford/Hafez Modirzadeh/Mark Dresser/AlexLive At The Open Gate ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
The great Bobby Bradford hasn't dimmed at all over the years – and he sounds wonderful here on cornet in the company of Hafez Modirzadeh on alto, Mark Dresser on bass, and Alex Cline on drums! The performance is a live one, but the songs have a nicely compact approach – no side-long improvisations, and instead these shorter musical moments that really show the players working together with a strong sort of sympathy – especially Bradford and Modirazedh, who trade tones in this beautifully evocative style. Titles include "Facet 5", "Dresser Only", "Song For The Unsung", "For Bradford", and "Steadfast". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby CallenderRainbow ... LP
Akarma/MGM (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A weird one! The album's sort of a trippy mix of psychedelia, soul, and jazziness – with production by Alan Lorber in a similar style to other projects of his from the same time (like the Lotus Palace album on Verve.) Bobby Callender sings in a style that's infused with a sense of knowledge and righteousness, but which is also a bit more devoid of soul than you'd expect from the cool cover of the album. Still, he's got some nice musicians backing him up, and a blend of instruments that includes organ, funky drums, and even sitar – so the overall sound's pretty cool. Titles include "Rainbow", "Symphonic Pictures", "A Man", "Mother Superior", and "Purple". LP is reissued as a 3-sided package – with the bonus cuts "Symphonic Pictures", "The Glow Within Thee", and "Raga Man"! LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Darin & Johnny MercerTwo Of A Kind ... LP
Atco, 1960. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A really surprising pairing of talents – and one that makes the album one of the real standouts from the early Bobby Darin years on Atco Records! Johnny Mercer was one of the coolest, grooviest songwriters of the 40s – and he was also a singer with a hell of a lot of charm – which makes him a perfect match here for Darin, who was a master showman right from the start! The pair trade lines wonderfully, and get the right sort of jazzy backings from Billy May – who knows how to keep things swinging, and lift the spirits of the set! The album starts and ends with the warm title cut "Two Of A Kind" – co-written by the pair – and other titles include some great Mercer compositions, plus other titles too – with tracks that include "Ace In The Hole", "East Of The Rockies", "Bob White", "Mississippi Mud", and "Who Takes Care Of The Caretaker's Daughter".

A cool chapter in the Savoy Records blowing session scene of the late 50s – an unusual group with Bill Harris on trombone, Bobby Jaspar on tenor, Joe Wilder on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, Eddie Costa on piano, George Duvivier on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Billy Ver Planck handled arrangements – and titles include "You Gotta Be A Good Man", "Each Side Of The River", "What Could I Do", and "Where You Gonna Run To". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby HutchersonComponents ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good ... $89.99
An essential Blue Note album by the great vibist Bobby Hutcherson, and a record that's split into 2 different sides, each of which display different aspects of Hutcherson's talents. The first four tracks are mellow and lyrical, with the kind of lovely melodic writing that is best illustrated by the cut "Little B's Poem" – included here, and still one of Hutcherson's most enduring works. The next four tracks show Hutcherson more as the accomplished modernist, working with edgey talents like James Spaulding on alto and flute, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and the great Joe Chambers on drums – who also wrote all 4 of the tracks in this segment. The work is a key example of Hutcherson's devotion to the Blue Note "new thing" sound, and titles include "Air", "Juba Dance", and "Pastoral". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby HutchersonMedina (plus Spiral) ... CD
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $22.99
Two great Bobby Hutcherson albums – both recorded at the end of the 60s, but not released by Blue Note until years later! Both records – Medina and Spiral – give you a glance at the early years of Bobby's famous association with tenorist Harold Land. The Land/Hutcherson combo turned out some of the best modernist soul jazz albums of their age, and their unique interplay, a mixture of free-thinking solos and tight groovy rhythms, set the pattern for so many other 70's jazz groups. Stanley Cowell plays piano on the session, and Bobby's longtime rhythm partner Joe Chambers is on drums. With the tracks "Avis", "Orientale", "Spiral", "Ruth", and "Visions". CD

Bobby JasparBobby Jaspar In Paris (aka Bobby Jaspar Quintet) ... LP
Disques Swing, 1956. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Rare American work from reedman Bobby Jaspar – a player best known for his contributions to French jazz in the postwar years, but working here with a set of American players! The album was recorded in New York for French branch of Columbia Records – done in November of 1956, and pitting Jaspar with some very well-matched musicians! The date features Jaspar on tenor, flute, and clarinet – with a tightly swinging trio that includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Knobby Totah on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a slightly modern combo whose work sounds especially great when Jaspar hits some hauntingly lyrical notes on flute. Titles include "Clarinescapade", "Tutti Flutti", "What's New", "Spring Is Here", "Wee Dot", and "I Won't Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Muse, 1972. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An excellent debut from saxophonist Bobby Jones – an extremely talented player whose work was a big part of the Charles Mingus group in the early 70s – and an artist who works with a surprising sense of soul! The album's got Bobby in a really great lineup – with sensitive backing from Charles McPherson on alto sax, Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – and 2 tracks feature some added whimsicality from Bob Dorough, who plays electric piano, and Sue Evans, who plays an assortment of percussion. Bob plays on the groovy tunes "Stone Bossa" and "Keepin Up With The Joneses" – and other tracks include "Thanks To Trane", "Ballad For Two Sons", "As The Crow Flies", and "Blues For The Brown Buddha".

Nana MouskouriNana – Arranged & Conducted By Bobby Scott (aka Nana Mouskouri Sings) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (Germany), 1965. New Copy ... About November 1, 2017 (delayed)
Lovely English-language work from Nana Mouskouri – a set recorded with some really great arrangements from Bobby Scott, who seems to help Nana pack even more feeling than usual in her work! Scott's arrangements have some elements of jazz, but are usually more complicated overall – sensitively shading things in alongside Nana's well-crafted vocals – and really getting past some of her poppier modes of the 60s with an all-adult approach to the tunes. Strings figure into most of the backings, with almost a Scott Walker sense of depth – and titles include "Tiny Sparrow", "I Love My Man", "Johnny", "Half A Crown", "Just A Ribbon", "If You Love Me", "The Love We Never Knew",a nd "Ballinderrie".

Riverside/OJC, 1964. Used ... $16.99
Mellow trio material by Bobby, recorded in the final moments of the Riverside label in its first incarnation, but not issued until 1970, when ABC took over the label's holdings. The set's notable in that Bobby plays vibes on 2 tracks, and also performs an unaccompanied piano solo on another. Backing is by the very sensitive Sam Jones and Jimmy Cobb, and titles include "From The Bottom", "Moanin", "Samba Triste", and "Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars". CD

Bobby WatsonQuiet As It's Kept ... CD
Red (Italy), 1999. Used ... $13.99
A cool late 90s set from reedman Bobby Watson – easily one of our favorite talents of his generation, working here in a laidback mode that's mighty nice! The set has Bobby blowing on both alto and soprano sax – the latter of which is always a treat – in a core combo that features piano, bass, drums, and guitar – the last used to color in the tunes gently, often matching the tones and sentiment of Watson's horn in a really nice way. There's a few other surprising elements too – a bit of wordless vocals from Pamela Watson on one track, and trumpet from Terrell Stafford on three more numbers – and given that Curtis Lundy handles bass and Ralph Peterson's on drums, you can bet that the album's got some very solid rhythmic grounding, even when things are gentle. Titles include "Just For Today", "Always A Friend", "Nubian Breakdown", "Nanatsu No Ko", "Concentric Circles", "Back Home Again With You", and "Afternoon In Ottobrun". CD

✨✧ John Coltrane, Idrees Sulieman, Bobby Jaspar, etcInterplay For 2 Trumpets & 2 Tenors ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 trumpets, 2 tenors, and a heck of a lot of open-ended blowing session magic! The format for this one's incredibly loose – as might be guessed by the "leaderless" nature of the record – but the session's a great example of the Prestige blowing session mode at its best – as it brings together unlikely groupmates, and really lets them feel each other out in the studio. On tenor, John Coltrane's deeper sound is matched with lightness of Bobby Jaspar's tone – and on trumpet, blowing session regular Webster Lewis and Idrees Sulieman show their talents at working strongly in a less-fettered format. The rest of the group includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Mal Waldron on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – and the album's 4 tracks are all nice and long – and include "Interplay", "Anatomy", "Light Blue", & "Soul Eyes".

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonLinger Lane ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful later Blue Note album from vibist Bobby Hutcherson – a set recorded after his famous association with Harold Land, but with a groove that's wonderfully soulful in a whole different way! Bobby plays marimbas instead of vibes this time around, and he's working with his own arrangements for a slightly larger group – one that has some sweet fusion overtones, and these wonderful mellow funk inflections – so that even the mellow cuts have this warmly glowing, ultra-soulful sound that's mighty nice – a bit like some of the work from Gene Harris around the same time. Other players include Jerry Peters on Fender Rhodes, who also helped out with the arrangements – plus Harvey Mason on drums and Ernie Watts on reeds – and a few tracks feature sweet backing vocals from The Waters. The highlight here is a nice moody extended version of "People Make The World Go Round", but all cuts are great, and titles include "Silver Rondo", "Manzanita", "NTU", and his dark cover of "Theme From MASH".
