Buddy MilesBicentennial Gathering Of The Tribes ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Buddy Miles hits the Bicentennial, and he's giving a nod to Native Americans on the cover – although a few years late of that trend in comparison to efforts by other singers of his generation! The album's also an obscure date for Casablanca – one that has Miles in smoother soul territory than before, but still with a bit more edge than other artists on the disco powerhouse label. Buddy produced himself, and the tunes are an updated version of the rock/soul vibe laid down by Miles on the early Mercury albums – taken to territory that's a bit smoother 70s, yet still with strong crossover appeal. Titles include "Inflation", "Now's The Time", "Where You Gonna Run To Lady", "Grecian Lady", "Won't You Be My Friend", and "Wake Me Shake Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy MilesChapter VII ... CD
CBS/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A killer chapter in the great early run of Buddy Miles – really genre-busting work that managed to cross over big to a number of crowds back in the day! As with his Mercury work, Miles has a wicked mix of soul, funk, rock, and blues going on here – but one that's percolated together strongly, so that it's not just a cribbing of famous styles – and instead comes across as something really new in the process – kind of a fresh vibe for all the cats who were willing to cross the tracks and change things up in their music at the time. Johnny Bristol handles production for the set, but it's still got the heavy groove you'd find on earlier Miles records – and the album features guest appearances from Carlos Santana, plus Latin percussion luminaries Wille Bobo and Victor Pantoja. Titles include "LA Resurrection", "Life Is What You Make It (parts 1 & 2)", "Elvira", "Hear No Evil", "Love Affair", "Visions", and "Crossfire". CD

Buddy MilesElectric Church ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Bluesy soul from Buddy Miles – an album that was half-produced by Jimi Hendrix, and which showcases the really crowd-pleasing side of Miles' sound! Tracks are a mix of soul covers and original numbers – done in a mode that puts plenty of guitar out front in the mix, and which uses Buddy's screaming vocals a bit more than his heavier drums. Horns are used on most numbers to give them a bit of southern soul inflection, and titles include a great live jamming take on "Wrap It Up", the funky "Destructive Love", and the cuts "Cigarettes & Coffee", "Miss Lady", "Texas", and "My Chant". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy MilesWe Got To Live Together ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Pure crossover genius from Buddy Miles – a great mix of funky soul and rockish touches – and the kind of record that easily put Buddy in the same camp as Sly Stone or The Isley Brothers with mainstream audiences of the time! Tracks here are a bit longer and more jamming than work by either of those two artists – with the kind of heavy guitar and horns that played heavily to the Fillmore crowd – but the overall sound of the record is a fair bit more soulful and even funkier than some other Miles' efforts from the earlier years too, with plenty of his tight drums in the mix! Titles include a great 12 minute reading of the title track "We Got To Live Together" – plus "Take It Off Him & Put It On Me", "Runaway Child", "Walking Down The Highway", and "Easy Greasy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, and a bit of marker on back.)

✨✧ Buddy MilesBuddy Miles Live ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most soulful sets ever recorded by the Buddy Miles Group – a really searing set of live performances from 1971, often done in a way that has the band stretching out and jamming heavily! The core group seems a bit bigger than usual – with a lineup that includes guitar and organ alongside some heavier tenor, alto, trumpet, and trombone. The horns come on strong, but are offset by lots of searing guitar from Charlie Karp – and Buddy, as usual, is a real monster on the drum kit. There's plenty of instrumental moments here that cook with funky soul intensity – and titles include "Wrap It Up", "Joe Tex", "Take It Off Him & Put It On Me", "Down By The River", "Place Over There", "The Segment", and "Them Changes".

✨✧ Buddy MilesExpressway To Your Skull ... LP
Mercury, 1968. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A super tripped-out blend of rock, funk, and soul – easily one of Buddy Miles' most mindblowing albums – and a classic that never lets up at all! Buddy's leading the whole group on drums – really kicking things large from behind the kit – while the rest of the group jams in a heavy style that's got plenty of fuzzed-out guitar and jazzy horn riffs – virtually a blueprint for countless other rock funk groups that copped Buddy's style in years to come. The drums alone are worth the price of admission – but the whole album's so right, tight, and outta sight that it's been a favorite in our crates for years! Titles include "Train", "Let Your Lovelight Shine", "Don't Mess With Cupid", "Funky Mule", and "Wrap It Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Buddy MilesMessage To The People ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic bit of tripped-out soul from Buddy Miles – put together with a lot of nice psychedelic production, and an overall sound that stays nice and deep on the bottom end of things – and lets Buddy rock out heavily on rootsy vocals. There's no real standout funky numbers, but the overall sound of the album is very much inspired by the sound of funk – as well as some of the funk/rock crossovers of the time – and titles include "Joe Tex", "Place Over There", "The Segment", "Don't Keep Me Wondering", "Sudden Stop", and "That's The Way Life Is".

Mercury, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark crossover album – featuring Buddy Miles' mixed Freedom Express group, and a heavy jazz-rock sound that would soon dominate the charts with other groups. Buddy's drums are super-heavy, even if his vocals always get us the wrong way. Includes the original recording of "Them Changes", plus "Memphis Train", "Your Feeling Is Mine", "Dreams", and "Down By The River". One for the Fillmore crowd! LP, Vinyl record album

Roberta FlackBustin Loose – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MCA, 1981. Very Good- ... $1.99
Certainly one of the lesser sorts of soul soundtracks that you'll find, and an easily overlooked Roberta Flack record consisting of tracks for this low-budget comedy with Cicely Tyson and Richard Pryor. The music's mostly in an electric modern soul vein – even the instrumental bits – and arrangements are by Barry Miles, Marcus Miller, Buddy Williams, and Roberta herself – who also produced the album. Titles include "Love (Always Commands)", "Lovin You (Is Such An Easy Thing To Do)", "Rollin On", "Qual E Malindrinho", and "Hittin Me Where It Hurts". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Maxine Sullivan/Buddy TateHighlights In Jazz ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
The last-ever performance from singer Maxine Sullivan – a vocalist best known for her work of the 50s, but one who kept on going strong for many years later! This set captures Sullivan in a completely charming elder mode – speaking a bit before most songs, and imbuing the performance with a strong sense of history – but one that's hardly needed in speech form, given that her raspy vocal tone speaks volumes in itself! Backing is from a combo that features Derek Smith on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Butch Miles on drums – on titles that include "As Long As You Live", "A Hundred Years From Today", "You're A Lucky Guy", and "Just One Of Those Things". But then things flip over entirely on the second half of the record, as Sullivan steps aside to let Buddy Tate's tenor come into the spotlight – as Buddy blows with a similar group, plus a few added horns – on titles that include "In A Mellotone", "I Can't Get Started", "Blues For Jack", and "Jumpin At The Woodside". Both Sullivan and Tate join together at the end – in a reading of "St Louis Blues". CD

Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan In Hi Fi ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Sarah's few albums for Columbia – and quite possibly the best, thanks to some great small group backing, heard on 8 of the album's 12 tunes! The group's a really great one – with Miles Davis on trumpet, Benny Green on trombone, Buddy Johnson on tenor, Tony Scott on clarinet, Mundell Lowe on guitar, and Billy Taylor on piano – all of whom get some surprising solo space on the album, and make the record one of Sarah's best jazz outings of the 50s. The remaining tracks on the set have a lusher ballad style, but are still quite nice – and titles include "Mean To Me", "Goodnight My Love", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", "East Of The Sun", "Pinky", "Ooh Whatcha Doin To Me", and "Come Rain Or Come Shine".

Gloria WalkerLove Is In The Air/Them Changes ... 7-inch
Federal, Late 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
Classic work from Gloria Taylor – a hip southern singer who was halfway between Ann Sexton and Tina Turner, and who sadly never seemed to cut an album. "Love Is In The Air" is a sweet ballad number – done with a slightly polished edge that gives it a more mature sound than some of Gloria's other work. "Them Changes" is a funky vocal cover of the Buddy Miles song – done with lots of fuzzed-out guitars! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousGroove – Belgium Popcorn – Blended Soul & R&B With Eastern Promise ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Not entirely soul, but not really pop either – and instead a special sort of space that's always been dug by soul fans in the Belgian scene! The groove here was dubbed "popcorn" many years back – and it features soulful vocals coming into play with tight 60s production – stomping rhythms, sparkling strings, and perfect production that often brings in some cool echoey touches to the mix! The feel here is quite different than the usual northern soul set of this nature – and a great illustration that there's still so much to learn about 60s soul music in general – as evidenced by the range of artists included, and the great record label images inside the cover! Titles include "Promised Land" by Buddy Lamp, "I Gotta Run" by Bobby Scott, "That's All It Takes" by Carrol Connors, "Let Her Go" by Gene Stridel, "Steady Cha Cha" by Frank Pizani, "Quite Girl" by Don Rondo, "Cha Cha Italiano" by Mary Mazza, "You'll Come Back" by Ronny Douglas, and "Living Dream" by Lenny Miles.

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerModernity Of Bob Brookmeyer (plus Bob Brookmeyer Quartet) ... CD
Verve/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic album from the man who virtually summed up the sound of modern on the trombone in the 50s – the mighty Bob Brookmeyer, stepping out here in a rare session for Verve! The date's a great small combo one – with Bob's valve trombone at the head of a quartet that includes Jimmy Rowles on piano, Buddy Clark on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums – all working with Brookmeyer in a very easygoing way that makes for some of his most expressive solos on record at the time. Tracks are never that long – save for one – but Bob really packs plenty into the space, and clearly learns a lesson here from his time with Stan Getz. Titles include "The Bulldog Blues", "Jasmin", "What Is There To Say", "Sticks & Stems", and "He Ain't Got Rhythm". Remaining tracks on the CD are from an equally great 10" LP done for Pacific Jazz in 1954 – a set that features Bob also in quartet mode, working with John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on drums, and either Bill Anthony or Red Mitchell on bass. The group's got a very Getz-like approach – one that's clean and modern, but with a looseness that's different from the way a west coast combo might have handled the material. Bob's horn is great throughout – blowing cleanly, but with a good deal of feeling – miles from the more trad modes of other trombonists of the mainstream at the time, and really sparkling on a set of tunes that includes "Last Chance", "Red Devil", "Traditional Blues", "Doe Eyes", and "Liberty Belle".

✨✧ Charlie ParkerBird – The Complete Charlie Parker On Verve (10 CD set) ... CD
Verve, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 10 CD Box ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A jazz treasure chest – an extraordinary bounty of Bird on Verve! You get absolutely everything here, master takes, alternate takes, loads of previously unissued material, rehearsals, incomplete takes, you get it all! Sidemen include Benny Carter, Kenny Clarke, Miles Davis, Roy Eldridge, Gil Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Coleman Hawkins, Johnny Hodges, John Lewis, Machito, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Ben Webster and Lester Young. There's 177 (!!) tracks in all, so we can't list all the titles here, but some of them include "Blues For Norman", "The Bird", "Repetition", "No Noise", "Okiedoke", "The Opener", "Lester Leaps In", "Flyin' Home", "Perdido", "Everything Happens To Me", "April In Paris", "Summertime", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was", "Bloomdido", "Mohawk", "My Melancholy Baby", "Leapfrog", "East Of The Sun", "I'll Remember April", "Au Privave", "KC Blues", "Swedish Schnapps", "Estrellita", "Funky Blues", "Jam Blues", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Love For Sale".

✨✧ Electric Flag/Paul BeaverTrip – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Sidewalk/Curb, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the trippiest soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of psych tracks from The Electric Flag, and moogier electronic moments from the great Paul Beaver! The Flag are at their best here – playing tunes that move from short bursts of fuzz to longer jams – laid out with great work from Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites on guitars, Barry Goldberg on organ, and Buddy Miles on drums – with a nice sense of arrangement and juxtaposition that rivals Spirit's equally great soundtrack material for Model Shop. This one's more of an all-out rocker – although the moog balances things out nicely – and the whole thing's definitely a cut above the usual thrown-together exploitation soundtrack of the period. There's lots of little crazy cuts, and a long one called "Fine Jung Thing" – plus the titles "Gettin' Hard", "Peter Gets Off", "The Other Ed Norton", "Psyche Soap", and "Joint Passing".

✨✧ Clare FischerWaltz ... CD
Discovery, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty darn nice CD – one that compiles tracks recorded by Fischer's big band in 1969, and which we almost passed up because of a silly-looking cover! The CD appears to include most of the material that appeared on Fischer's album Thesaurus for Atlantic, plus a wealth of additional tunes cut at the same time, with similar players – making for 15 tracks in all that perfectly capture his spacious approach to the material, and strong sense of a groove. Personnel includes Gary Foster, Bud Shank, Warne Marsh, Larry Bunker, Conte Candoli, James Zito, and Buddy Childers – and Fischer himself plays organ, acoustic piano, and a bit of electric piano as well! Titles include "One", "Waltz", "Miles Behind", "This Is Always", "Thiers' Tears", "Liz Anne", "Calamus", "In Memoriam", "Bitter Leaf", and "Upper Manhattan Medical Group". CD
