✨✧ Robert GlasperCovered – The Robert Glasper Trio Recorded Live At Capitol Studios ... CD
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Continuing genius from the great Robert Glasper – a set that has the keyboardist going back to basics, and working in just a trio mode – live in the studio, and with stunning sound! Robert plays acoustic piano, but as with his early years, he's got this fluidity that really makes it feel like electric at times – a way of using the standard keys as if they belonged to a Fender Rhodes – a sound that comes across especially well with the snapping drums of Diamond Read, and round acoustic basslines from Vincent Archer. If you weren't hip to Glasper at this earlier mode in his career, you'll find plenty to love here – especially as some of the tunes are reworks of the sorts of music he'd do with his Black Radio project, but served up here in a mostly instrumental mode. The album does feature one guest appearance from Harry Belafonte – who's really amazing on a spoken part for "Got Over" – and other titles include "Reckoner", "I Don't Even Care", "In Case You Forgot", "The Worst", "So Beautiful", "I'm Dying Of Thirst", and "Levels".

VariousEccentric Soul – Capitol City Soul ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
The Numero Group takes a great step backwards – returning to the capital city of Ohio, Columbus – to mine the same soul and funk treasure trove of their Capsoul collection! The music here comes from the same scene – and often from Capsoul or related labels – and the set offers up a stunning array of rare gems, many of which were never even pressed on record – all showing Columbus to be one of the funkiest, grooviest cities in the US during the early 70s! Lots of the work here has that same heavy groove that we love from the Capsoul collection – and since that initial Numero foray into the compilation business, the label has only become more skilled at unearthing and presenting great sounds like this. The package features notes on both the music and the project of researching it – plus a long appendix on the local labels featured, along with photos and label scans too! Titles include "Woe Is Me" by Kool Blues, "I Need Your Love" by Chandlers, "Funky Disposition" by Dean Francis & Soul Rockers, "Lose The One You Love" by Soul Partners, "Look In The Mirror" by Vondors, "Hysteria" by Four Mints, "This Is The Way That I Am" by La Fez, "When He's Gone" by Associated Press, "Excuse Me Miss" by Jupiter's Release, and "I've Been Trying" by Love Maximum.

✨✧ Johnny OtisCapitol Years ... CD
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
During his long musical career, Johnny Otis recorded for more labels than most folks have pants – but his 50s work at Capitol (and the related Dig label) remains some of his best, and it's very nicely collected on this 24 track set! The Capitol years gave Johnny some polish – a good thing, because it helped him hone his songwriting ideas, tighten up the playing, and get a bit more jump in his grooves. The result was a sound that was a perfect blend of the bourgeoning LA R&B scene and the classic American approach to songsmithery that was Capitol's best strength during the 50s. Titles include "Voodoo Woman", "Vine Street Swing", "Three Girls Named Molly", "Castin My Spell", "Telephone Baby", "Crazy Country Hop", "Cold Turkey", "I'm With You", and the classic "Willie & The Hand Jive".

Ashford & SimpsonSolid (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Cherry Pop (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
Darn solid work from Ashford & Simpson – one of the duo's biggest albums for Capitol Records, and a great set from their 80s run for the label! The groove here is a bit more heavy on keyboards and beats than before, but the pair still keep things plenty soulful with their positive, upbeat approach to the music – rich, full, and always steeped in soul! The title track, "Solid", is one of the most-remembered tunes from the duo – and other cuts include "Outta The World", "The Jungle", "Honey I Love You", "Babies", "Cherish Forever More", and "Tonight We Escape". CD also features 4 bonus tracks too – "Street Corner", "Babies (ext mix)", "Solid (special club mix)", and "Outta The World (12" dub)". CD

Les BaxterConfetti ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
A groovy Les Baxter album from the pre-exotica years – a set that showcases all the lively, jaunty styles that Les brought to his initial instrumental run on Capitol Records! The mix of sounds is as colorful as the title might imply – some Latin modes, wordless vocal passages, and plenty of instrumental tricks – even a bit of whistling at times, which comes across in this mighty cool way – as Baxter and crew turn out their own version of famous European instrumentals, zinged up in this groovy late 50s California mode! Titles include "Love Begins", "La Panse", "Love Theme From Farewell To Arms", "The Lonely Whistler", "Heartstring Melody", and "Ricordante Marcellino". CD

Beastie BoysMix Up ... CD
Capitol, 2007. Used ... $4.99
Funky and psych-rock-soul instrumentals from the Beastie Boys – essentially working as a quintet for much of the set – with Money Mark on Rhodes and Farfisa, and Alfredo Ortiz on percussion! The Beasties manage to blend 70s soul, jazz, Latin and sound library style grooves with a catchy aplomb on the best tracks – with Mike D on drums, Ad Rock on guitar, and Yauch on the bass. The Beasties still have enough cache in the pop spectrum to do whatever the heck they want – something that's very hardly accomplished in the 2007 major label environment – and this record stands up pretty well against much of what you'll find in the deep funk underground. Titles include "B For My Name", "14th Street Break", "Suco De Tangerina", "Gala Event", "Electric Worm", "Freaky Hijacki", "Off The Grid", "The Rat Cage", "The Melee", "Dramastically Different", "The Cousin Of Death", and "The Kangaroo Rat".

Peabo BrysonI Am Love ... CD
Capitol/Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99
A sweet solo set from Peabo Bryson – part of his excellent run of records for Capitol, and an album that features great production from the legendary Johnny Pate! Peabo's got this great way of being mellow and masculine, but without ever sounding too cliched – at a level that makes a record like this a lot more compelling than some of his crossover duets of the time. And Pate's thrown in a few more upbeat moments amidst the laidback, slow-stepping tracks that were always Bryson's best stock in trade – although we still love the mellow moments the best! Titles include "Split Decision", "Impossible", "You", "Get Ready To Cry", "Love Is On The Rise", "Let The Feeling Flow", "There's No Guarantee", and "Move Your Body". CD

CalderaCaldera ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A jazzy Latin fusion classic – and the first album by the border-crossing combo Caldera! The group featured both North and South American players – coming together in a hard-riffing approach to fusion that rivaled the best fusion combos of both the California and Brazilian scenes at the time. There's a few nice moments that really belie their more southern roots – and recall the choppy fusion of Airto, or the vocal scatting of Flora – but the set's also got a sunny west coast finish, thanks to some wonderful production from Wayne Henderson – who kicks things up in a way that the group hardly matched on later albums! Guest stars include Raul De Souza and Roberto Da Silva – and titles include the funk classic "Coastin", plus "Guanacaste", "Out Of The Blue", "El Juguete", and "Synesthesia". CD

Benny CarterAspects (aka Jazz Calendar) ... CD
United Artists/Capitol, 1958. Used ... $4.99
A real corker from Benny Carter's revival period at the end of the 50s – a large group session recorded with a very strong horn section, arranged and produced by Benny himself! The album's got a "calendar" gimmick – in that each of the 12 songs feature a month in the name – but you've gotta thank Benny for getting past that simple trick and keeping things real with an unobtrusive title and cover – and some extremely strong arrangements that cook nicely no matter what the tune! Titles include "Swingin In November", "Something For October", "August Moon", "March Wind", and "February Fiesta". CD

Benny CarterSax A La Carter ... CD
Capitol, 1960. Used ... $4.99
A bracingly simple album from Benny Carter – one recorded with small group west coast backing, in a style that really lets us focus on his wonderful tone! The set's one of Carter's most obscure from later years – a 1960 session recorded with Jimmy Rowles on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums – and mostly featuring older numbers interpreted by Carter with a great deal of charm, and simple but effective work on the solos. Benny plays alto on most of the set, but also overdubs tenor on 2 tracks, and plays a bit of soprano on another. Titles include "Ennui", "Moon Of Manakoora", "I Should Care", "Far Away Places", "Friendly Islands", "Understand", and "All Or Nothing At All". CD

✨✧ Serge ChaloffBlue Serge ... CD
Capitol, 1956. Used ... $4.99
Classic Capitol jazz session, and one that pairs Boston baritone player Serge Chaloff with an LA rhythm section that has Sonny Clark on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The album's a perfect example of Chaloff's legendary (and short-lived) talents on the baritone – and listening to it, you'll hear how Chaloff was one of the few players ever to get such a rich tone and fluid style out of the instrument. The whole thing's packaged nicely, in the groovy original cover, and the set also includes one bonus cut. Titles include "How About You?", "Handful Of Stars", "The Goof & I", "Susie's Blues", and "All The Things You Are". CD

Chocolate Watch BandNo Way Out ... CD
Capitol/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A mix of spiraling psychedelia and grittier garagey rock from Chocolate Watch Band! No Way Out has a bit more grit than the more mystical follow up LP, but we wouldn't complain about that – the mix of more tripped out organ and atmospheric touches paired with harder hitting, sweaty r&b and fuzz rock influenced sounds match pretty well in our book! Groovy stuff from the late 60s Cali scene! Titles include "Let's Talk About Girls", "Midnight Hour", "Come On", "Dark Side Of The Mushroom", "Hot Dusty Road", "Gone And Passes By", "Expo 2000" and "Gossamer Wings". CD

June Christy has an incredibly icy tone on the record, filled with sorrow, regret, and loneliness – all of which are amplified even more deeply by Pete Rugolo's eerie, off-kilter arrangements. 11 tracks total.

Coralie ClementSalle Des Pas Perdus ... CD
Capitol (UK), 2001. Used ... $6.99
Lovely French pop – with a stripped-down retro groove that's really delightful! Coralie's got a breathy vocal style that reminds us of a young Jane Birkin – and the backing on the set is in a small combo mode, with guitar, organ, bass, drums, and sax – grooving in a mode that's halfway between the left bank of the 60s, and the current underground pop stylings of groups on the Siesta label. Coralie's vocals are great – and the album's filled with loads of lovely original tunes that feel as if they were dug up off of lost 60s eps from France! Titles include "La Mer Opale", "L'Ombre Et La Lumiere", "Salle Des Pas Perdus", "Lou", "Le Dernier Train", and "Le Jazz Et Le Gin". CD

George ClintonComputer Games ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time". CD

Capitol (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Great solo work from George Clinton – but a set that's still done in the best late 70s modes of Parliament and Funkadelic! Clinton's clearly more comfortable in the lead here – that new spotlight presence he adopted on the Computer Games album – but he also draws heavily on the sound of the whole ensemble, who refine their P-Funk approach with some slight 80s modes – still showing that although George influenced so many other funk acts during these years, he can still craft a groove better than anyone else! Tracks are nice and long, and filled with Clinton's strong sense of humor – and titles include "Nubian Nut", "Last Dance", "Quickie", "Stingy", "Silly Millameter", and "You Shouldn't Nuf Bit Fish".
