✨✧ Art PepperArt Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section/Marty Paich Quartet Featuring Art Pepper ... CD
Contemporary/Essential Jazz (Spain), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 LPs on 1 CD. First up is Art Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section – one of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential East meets West jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for the first and only time (it's said that Art didn't even know of the date until the morning of the session). Pepper is one of the few alto players to really establish his own voice on the horn, without aping Bird, and his emotive playing really shines here. A definitive version of "Straight Life" is on this album, along with "Waltz Me Blues", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "Star Eyes". Next is Marty Paich Quartet Featuring Art Pepper – a fantastic Art Pepper album – from his best period! The album's one of those smaller-label, mid 50s gems that Art cut in LA during some of his "troubled years" – all sessions that are great musically, but which are often overshadowed by some of Pepper's more famous work for bigger, more enduring labels. If you're at all a fan of Pepper, though, don't pass this one up – because the album's got a razor-sharp edge that's really wonderful – a keen exploration of tone that we'd rank right up there with a rare few Pepper albums of the time – and which is carried off here with an approach that's disarmingly easy-going, but very carefully placed on every note. Marty Paich's the real leader of the group on piano – even though we think Art's the star of the set – and bass is by Buddy Clark, and drums by Frank Capp. Titles include "Abstract Art", "All The Things You Are", "Marty's Blues", and "Pitfall".

✨✧ Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan In Hi Fi (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". 10 bonus tracks too – including unreleased cuts and alternates.

(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly. Out of print.)

✨✧ VariousRunning The Voodoo Down – Exploration In Psychrockfunksouljazz 1967 to 1980 ... CD
Festival, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the influence of psychedelia on funk music – served up here in territory that starts with electric Miles Davis and prime Jimi Hendrix – then takes off into great new space of its own! The collection's awash in freak and fuzz, but also has plenty of heavy drums and basslines, too – served up by a range of soulful artists who were really blowing their minds and expanding their musical horizons at the end of the 60s – taking the same kind of chances that rock artists were in their album-long journeys – with results that are equally impressive! Familiar tracks are mixed with lesser-known gems – and titles include "Mary Don't Take Me On No Bad Trip" by Fugi, "Red Hot Mama" by Funkadelic, "Cherrystones" by Eugene McDaniels, "Patience Is Virtue" by William S Fischer, "Liar" by The Meters, "Thrills Of Love" by Warlock, "Willie Nelson (take 3)" by Miles Davis, "California Dreamin" by Eddie Hazel, "Like A Rolling Stone" by The Undisputed Truth, "Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic, "Doriella Du Fontaine" by Lightnin Rod & Jimi Hendrix, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (parts 1 & 2)" by James Brown, "Down By The River" by Buddy Miles, and "In A Silent Way (live)" by Santana. 2CD set features bonus tracks not on the vinyl – including "I Feel Bad" by Pure Hell, "Brown Rice" by Don Cherry, and "If You Got It You'll Get It" by The Headhunters.
