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

✨✧ Maxine Sullivan/Buddy TateHighlights In Jazz ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Charles EarlandLiving Black (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stone cold live date from Charles Earland – recorded in Newark, at just the sort of club where he got his start! The tracks are quite long and openly grooving – even more so than Charles' killer studio sets from the time – and there's a bit of a harder edge here too, thanks partly to the live setting – and to the amazing young tenor work of Grover Washington Jr, who really sounds incredible here – much harder than in his later Kudu years! Other members of the group include trumpeter Gary Chandler – playing with a sound that's right up there with his landmark date on Eastbound Records – plus Maynard Parker on guitar, Jesse Kilpatrick on drums, and Buddy Caldwell on congas. As usual, Charles doesn't need a bassist to help him find a nice chunky bottom on the tunes – and he really sails out majestically throughout, with those famous long-running solo lines of his on the Hammond! Titles include "Killer Joe", "Milestones", and "Key Club Cookout". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "More Today Than Yesterday" and "Message From A Black Man". CD
