Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 & 2 ... CD
BYG/Charly (UK), Late 60s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich tapestry of sound, but with less of the structuring righteous concepts of some of Archie's other work – especially his sides for Impulse. Shepp had really been experiencing some new freedoms on the French scene of the late 60s – even more so than in the US avant outfield – and you can definitely hear him taking flight here, with a like-minded group of players that includes Clifford Thornton on trombone and shenai, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Joseph Dujean on guitar, Beb Guerin on bass, and Claud Delcloo on drums. This first part of the live set features one long track – "The Early Bird" – a slow building number that goes increasingly outside as it progresses, featuring some very over the top solo work from Shepp, who also plays a bit of piano on the set! Piano returns on "Huru" – another long track that has Shepp laying down these beautiful blocky passages that are surprisingly personal amidst the freer energy of the group. Great package – with heavy book-styled cover, new notes, and lots of photos! CD

✨✧ Young Lions (Lee Morgan & Wayne Shorter)Young Lions (UK pressing) ... CD
Vee Jay/Charly (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
One of our top ten jazz albums of all time! Honest! This stunning session from 1960 not only coined the term "young lions" in jazz, but offers up a pack of them that any modern players would be hard-pressed to beat. Trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenorist Wayne Shorter, and pianist Bobby Timmons take a break from the Jazz Messengers to join altoist Frank Strozier in the frontline on this fantastic set of tracks that ring with a lyrical beauty hardly surpassed by any other hardbop album. Shorter wrote nearly all of the tracks, and the set list includes some of his best-ever work, like "Seeds Of Sin", "Scourin'", and "Peaches & Cream" – all beautiful tracks that are completely sublime. The group's completed by Bob Cranshaw on bass and Albert Heath on drums – and other titles include "Fat Lady", and "That's Right". If you buy one jazz album this year, let it be this one! CD also features alternate takes of "Seeds Of Sin", "Scourin", and "Fat Lady". CD

Vee Jay/Charly (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 10CD ... $48.99 56.99
One of the coolest collections of tracks we've ever heard from this legendary Chicago label – a massive 10CD package that goes way past what other Vee Jay collections have to offer! Yes, the set does feature some of the bigger names on the label – Dee Clark, Jerry Butler, Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker, Betty Everett, and others – but amidst the huge number of tracks on the set – 269 in all (!) – there's loads of Vee Jay soul, doo wop, and blues rarities – with work by lesser-known artists like The Hi-Liters, Goldenrods, Senators, Orville Couch, Marilyn Britton, Tracey Dey, Wade Flemons, Ray Smith, The Honey Bees, The Monsters Four, The Rubies, Nancy Love, Marie Gladness, Gil Hamilton, Browley Guy, The Pyramids, The Dontells, Lee Diamond, Morris Pejoe, LC McKinley, Floyd Jones, The El Cincos, and many others! There's also a full CD of Vee Jay Gospel gems – and another CD of jazz recorded by the label too – and the whole thing comes in a longbox, with a beautiful booklet of notes and photos. And again – that's a whopping 269 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ SpanielsGoodnite Sweetheart Goodnite ... CD
Charly (UK), 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
30 cuts of the classic doo wop sides that the Spaniels cut for the Vee Jay label in Chicago, during the late 50's. In contrast to labelmates The El Dorados, The Spaniels were a bit smoother, and added more of a sweet harmony sound to their style – as you'll know from tracks like "Goodnite Sweetheart Goodnite", "Baby It's You", and their version of "Stormy Weather". But the big list of tracks on here also includes a number of uptempo tracks that have a rawer sound, like "Automobiles", "Play It Cool", "Bounce", and "Crazee Baby". Great stuff, and just about the most complete collection of their work! CD

At the moment, this is about the only way you can legitimately get these great Vee Jay doo-wop sides by this legendary Chicago group from the late 50s. Just about some of the hardest group soul you'll find from the time, and the 28 tracks include "Bim Bam Boom", "At My Front Door", "Chop Ling Soon", "Oh What A Girl", "One More Chance", and "There In The Night". Classic 50s R&B, and nicely packaged, with a good set of notes on the group. CD

✨✧ Grachan Moncur IIINew Africa/One Morning I Woke Up Very Early (Aco Dei De Madrugada) ... CD
BYG/Charly (UK), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 seminal sessions from avant soul trombonist Grachan Moncur III – back to back on 1 CD! New Africa features Moncur hitting an Archie Shepp-ish, spiritual vein in his playing – recorded in Paris with a group that includes Shepp, Roscoe Mitchell, Dave Burrell, and Andrew Cyrille. Side one's mostly the long suite "New Africa", but it also includes the great composition "Space Spy" – and side two features the tracks "When" and "Exploration". The whole album's incredible – much more soulful than some of Moncur's "new thing" recordings, and equally compelling! One Morning I Woke Up Very Early is every bit as great – almost better, in fact – with a warm, flowing style that has traces of the spiritualism of Shepp and Pharoah Sanders, and more of an Africanist influence than you'd expect to hear in Moncur's work from his earlier recordings. The title track is wonderful – with a soulful vocal on the introduction, and a majestic building modal approach – and other tracks follow that groove with a spiritual sound that's more rhythmic, and more inside than some of Moncur's other work of the period! Titles include "Ponteio", "Osmosis", "Tiny Temper", and "One Morning I Woke Up Very Early". CD

✨✧ Natural FourNatural Four ... CD
Charly (UK), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweeeeet soul from Chicago! The Natural Four were one of the greatest soul harmony groups of the 70's – and their work on the Curtom has an amazing "rough with the smooth" quality that really sets them apart from east coast groups of the time! Part of the strength of the set has to do with Leroy Hutson – who arranged and produced the whole album, and gives it a superdope quality that makes it stand proudly with the best work on Curtom Records of the time. The sound is full and polished, yet also honest, earnest, and personal – in that great mix of moods that Hutson and Curtis Mayfield could bring to their own work of the time. The whole set's a classic, and titles include "Try Love Again", "You Bring Out The Best In Me", "Can This Be Real?", "This is What's Happening Now", and "Things Will Be Better Tomorrow". CD

Charly (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully overstuffed collection of early work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – a set that not only includes many of his key recordings from the scene in the 60s, but also some of his important productions for other artists too! The package begins with Toussaint in the lead on a series of sides on CD one – working either as himself, or as Al Touson, or with The Stones, The Rubyiats, or Allen & Allen – all with these choppy, loping, heavy-grooving rhythms that were Toussaint's huge contribution to New Orleans soul right from the start! Titles include "Whirlaway", "Whipped Cream", "Moo Moo", "Wham Tousan", "Omar Khayyam", "I Don't Need One", "Baby Do Liddle", "Tomorrow", "Fat Cat", "Banana Split", and "Java". CD2 features a series of recordings done for the Minit, Instant, and Sansu labels – all with Toussaint involved either as producer, arranger, or musician – on material that forever shaped the sound of New Orleans – titles that include "A Certain Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Over You" by Aaron Neville, "I Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by Chris Kenner, "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "Holy Cow" by Lee Dorsey, "I'm Evil Tonight" by Betty Harris, "Oogsey Moo" by Jessie Hill, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, and "Hot Tamales (parts 1 & 2)" by The Primemates. 50 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousClub Soul Vol 1 – The Scene Club – Ham Yard London 1963 to 1966 ... CD
Charly (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning look at a legendary London club of the 60s – a CD that's brimming over with the American soul that made it groove so great back in the day! The set does a great job of showing the roots both of Northern soul, and the UK mod scene – as most of the work here is from that early cusp of soul – when R&B still figured strongly into the mix, and the groove also had some strong inflections from blues and jazz as well! CD features 28 smoking tracks – including "Ain't That Loving You Baby" by Jimmy Reed, "Jaywalking" by The Upsetters, "Who Can I Run To" by Geri Hall, "I'll Take One" by Harold Burrage, "Song Called Soul" by Gene Chandler, "Let The Good Times Roll" by Alvin Robinson, "Question" by Roscoe Shelton, and "I've Got A Claim On You" by Betty Everett.

New MastersoundsMade For Pleasure ... CD
Royal Potato, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
The New Mastersounds are definitely made for pleasure – at least to our funk-sensitive ears – as the group's been giving us nothing but greatness since the turn of the millenium, with no sign of stopping at all! That boundless energy is apparent right from the very first note on this sweet little record – a very tight, very fierce set that has the group cutting even sharper rhythms than before – all laced with superb guitar from the mighty Eddie Roberts, and equally at home with gritty funky 45 styles as with 70s blacksploitation funk! Many numbers feature an added tenor or trumpet, or both – with some nice solos to fill out the instrumental passages – and the set only features a bit of vocals from Charly Lowry on a few tracks. Titles include "High & Wide", "Cigar Time", "Joy", "Sitting On My Knees", "Made For Pleasure", "Tranquilo", and "Just Gotta Run". CD

Oiling BoilingOiling Boiling ... CD
UFO/Rocket (Finland), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A hip Finnish take on soul jazz – headed up by drummer Matti Oiling! The groove here is tight and very straightforward – almost an amped-up European groove based on American soul jazz of the 60s – similar to some of Charly Antolini's excellent work for Saba/MPS! Instrumentation includes some nice trumpet and sax passages – often tightly arranged, but in ways that work with the drums in a cool sort of soundtrack funk feel – usually leaving Matti plenty of room to open up on the kit. Titles do a good job of summing up the energy of the record – with cuts that include "Boom Bang Basch", "Soul Rock", "Chicken Nerve", "Road Runner's Waltz", and "Steam Train". CD

Dieter ReithHappy Afternoon ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1966. Used ... $11.99
An essential bit of piano jazz from MPS – and one of the rarest sides on their Saba label from the 60s! German keyboardist Dieter Reith plays with a cracklin' trio that includes Peter Witte on bass, and powerhouse Charly Antolini on drums. The tracks are a mix of originals and jazz standards, and they're all played with a light lively approach, and the trademark piano jazz groove that's made some of these MPS albums favorites on the international groove scene. Some of the best tracks are Deiter's "Happy Afternoon" and "How About A Blues", which both have a nice breezy groove to them, but the record also has nice versions of "Green Dolphin Street", "Wives & Lovers", and "Days Of Wine And Roses".

✨✧ Singers Unlimited & Art Van DammeInvitation ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever cut by the Singers Unlimited – thanks to great instrumentation from the mighty Art Van Damme! Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

MPS (Germany), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from Art Van Damme – a real gem from his run for MPS, and recorded with a sound that's even more sublime than his previous American work! Art's accordion is captured beautifully with brilliant MPS sound – and set up in a relaxed quintet setting with Fred Rundquist on guitar, Heribert Thusek on vibes, Peter Witte on bass, and Charly Antolini on drums – a lineup that offers some especially nice interplay between accordion and vibes! Tracks are short, but quite evocative – and titles include "Pandora", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Lover Man", "If I Had You", and "For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Latin Disco ... CD
Rough Guide, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funk and soul meet Latin rhythms – and the result is a really special moment in the New York scene – a time when disco rhythms helped the underground scene burn brightly in the midtown clubs! Back in the 60s, nightspots in the city would routinely host Latin bands – but by the disco generation, much of the Latin action had retreated uptown – until grooves like these got things going again in a whole new light – returning the artists to a wider audience through a swirling blend of strings, jazzy instrumentation, and soulful vocals! The style's one that was so strong back in the day, it's had plenty of power over the years – and the set here also brings together some later variants of Latin disco from around the globe. Titles include "Sunny" by Yambu, "Salsoul Hustle" by Salsoul Orchestra, "La Botella" by Joe Bataan, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "C'Mon Baby Do The Latin Hustle" by Jose Fajardo, "Combate A Kung Fu" by Wganda Kenya, "Latin Lover" by Joe Bataan, "X-Perience" by Grupo X, "Firewalker" by Jungle Fire, and "Everlasting Love" by Los Charly's Orchestra.
