✨✧ Coke EscovedoComin' At Ya (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure brilliance from Coke Escovedo – an artist who really finds a way to make so many different things come together perfectly – with results that are even stronger than his previous work in Azteca and Santana! The set's got a warm blend of Latin roots, modern soul, and jazzy fusion – all produced by the great Pat Gleeson with the same sort of genre-bending care he brought to his own work as a musician! Gleeson makes things smooth and spacey, but never slick – really layering the sound at a level that's somewhere in the Mizell family territory, but with a bit of a different vibe. Coke's percussion is wonderful – and the set features vocals from Errol Knowles, plus backing from The Waters, and guest instrumentation from both Joe Henderson on tenor and Gabor Szabo on guitar. The whole thing's great, and titles include the sublime groover "I Wouldn't Change A Thing", a sweet remake of Willie Bobo's "Fried Neckbones & Some Home Fries", and the tracks "Back Seat", "Runaway", "Hangin On", "Somebody's Callin", and "Diamond Dust/Vida".

✨✧ CokeCoke ... CD
Sound Triangle/Essential, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound of the NuYorican generation and the heavier hitters of LA's Chicano funk scene! Instrumentation includes organ, guitar, and trumpets – and vocals are delivered in a brown eyed soul style that burns nicely with the heavier grooves of the group. But best of all is the drummer, who really kicks it large on the kit – and creates some really nice funky numbers on the set! Includes the break classic "Na Na", plus the tunes "Got To Touch Your Face", "Te Amo Mas", "Quiero Decirte", "Bang Bang", "Bun Bun Bun", "You Turn Me On", and "Que Seria De Mi". A really great album – with a totally unique sound! CD

✨✧ Coke EscovedoDisco Fantasy ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Not as strong as Coke's earlier work on Mercury – but not a bad album overall, thanks to some tight production work by Pat Gleeson, who's also most likely playing the cool keyboards on the record. Most of the tunes are aimed at the dancefloor – not really disco numbers, but the sort of fast funk jazz-based tunes that showed up in the later years of CTI and Kudu, especially on albums arranged by David Matthews. There's a female vocalist on most of the tracks, although she's not named in the notes – and titles include "Soul Support", "Won't You Gimme The Funk", "Who Do You Want To Love", "Trash Man", "Something Special", and "Hot Soul Single".

✨✧ SilverbeatsSilverbeats (transparent coke clear vinyl) ... LP
Lion, 1991. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare bit of garage psych from the Milwaukee scene of the early 90s – originally a cassette-only release by this indie group who featured Dan Mullen on guitar – a player you might know from his better-known work a few years before in Plasticland! The sound here is maybe a bit tighter and garagey than Plasticland – slightly less trippy, with a feel that really fits the warmth of the Wisconsin underground during this period – less attitude than you'd find on the coasts, but no less talent in the music. Vocals and second guitar are by James Tessier – and titles include "In The Sound Room", "Calm Me Down", "Midnight To Six Man", "Love Comes Knockin", "Over & Over", "I Want Speed", and "Pepperoni Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 150 hand numbered copies – comes with a great 8 page booklet on the band and Milwaukee scene at the time!)

✨✧ Mostly Other People Do The KillingForty Fort ... CD
Hot Cup, 2010. Used ... $8.99
One of most joyful and energetic young jazz ensembles around – a group that's both powerful and playful, reverent of its forbears yet stands facing forward – with a fantastic fourth album in Forty Fort! The group is again working in their unique blend of jazz styles, with nods to the great Blue Note and Impulse hard bop, swing and 60s avant garde sounds and more fiery modern bursts of noise and energy, and the dynamics somehow work together no matter how far the group reaches. Genuinely exciting stuff. We really love this group, and it pleases us that they're quite prolific and keep the greatness coming! Titles include group composer/bassist Moppa Elliot's originals "Pen Argyl", "Rough And Ready", "Blue Ball", "Nanticoke Coke", "Forty Fort". "Little Hope", "St Mary's Proctor", "Round Bottom, Square Top", and the Neal Hefti gem "Cute". CD

VariousBreakin' – Original Soundtrack (clear vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Polydor/Get On Down, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
Sure, maybe Breakin wasn't the most accurate, most faithful portrait of life on the streets in the early 80s – but the film was a great breakout moment for hip hop culture in the mainstream, and also helped sell the new style with a heavy dose of soul! The real stars here are Ollie & Jerry – who deliver two of the album's best tracks – "Breakin There's No Stoppin Us" and "Showdown" – but the set's also got some other great 80s soul and funk tracks – including "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus & Chaka Khan, "Freakshow On The Dance Floor" by The Bar-Kays, the smooth club hit "99 1/2" by Carol Lynn Townes, "Body Work" by Hot Streak, "Street People" by Fire Fox, "Heart Of The Beat" by 3V, and "Reckless" by Chris "The Glove" Taylor – featuring vocals by a young Ice T!

Universal (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
The Mojo Club posse is at it again – turning out a sublime set of older groovers – a brilliant collection of classic soul, funk, jazz, and Latin cuts! The set's one of the most soulful in the Mojo series, and like the rest, it's filled with obscure gems that you might have passed by over the years – not only rare cuts from singles, but a number of great tunes that have lain hidden on 70s albums that were otherwise worth passing over. Titles include "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples & The String Thing, "Tema Pro Luis" by Rosinha De Valenca, "State Of Mind" by Puzzle, "That's What You Say" by Gloria Scott, "The Woo Pee" by Sugarpie De Santo, "Ooh Ooh The Dragon" by Marvin Holmes, "He's My Sunny Boy" by Diana Ross & The Supremes, "Things We Said Today" by London Jazz Four, "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" by Rose Royce, "I Wouldn't Change A Thing" by Coke Escovedo, "Boss Tres Bien" by Quartette Tres Bien, "Barra Limpa" by Oscar Brown Jr, "Lady Rain" by Lexia, "Elephant's Trunk" by Steve Pepper & Sir Shree, and "Mabusso" by Ambros Seelos. 23 tracks on 2 LPs!

Rhino, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
Groovy cop show themes from the 60s and 70s! The set was put together by Rhino, in conjunction with Nick At Night's TV Land, and it's actually got a pretty decent batch of groovers that we remember from years gone by, back when we were sitting up late with the babysitter, a coke and a bag of Cheetos balanced on our knees, watching guys like Raymond Burr, Telly Savalas, and Jack Ward do their thing! Titles include "Hawaii Five-O" by Mort Stevens, "Baretta's Theme" by Sammy Davis Jr, "The Rookies" by Elmer Bernstein, "Cagney & Lacey" by Bill Conti, "Kojack Theme" by Willie Bobo, "The Mod Squad" by Earle Hagen, "Ironsides" by Quincy Jones, "Theme From SWAT" by Rhythm Heritage, "Streets Of San Francisco" by Pat Williams, "Gotcha (Theme From Starsky & Hutch)" by Tom Scott, "Chips" by Corniche, and "Theme From NYPD" by Johnny Hammond Smith.

✨✧ Luis GascaLuis Gasca (For Those Who Chant) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Blue Thumb/Big Pink (South Korea), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest solo albums ever issued by Latin jazz trumpeter Luis Gasca – a set that really expands on his debut for Atlantic Records, and which brings in a whole host of early 70s west coast Latin influences! The style here is very laidback and open – a bit like some of the Chicano funk coming out of the LA scene at the time, but a fair bit more jazz oriented overall – with long lean solos from both Gasca on trumpet and Joe Henderson on tenor sax, set up in a half-electric set of rhythms laid out on guitar, organ, keyboards, bass, and plenty of percussion! Other players here are all top-shelf too – and include Carlos Santana, George Cables, Stanley Clarke, Coke Escovedo, and Lenny White. The album features 4 long tracks – "Spanish Gypsy", "Street Dude", "La Raza", and "Little Mama". CD

Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Collection of material from Herbie's funky electric years with Columbia, from '73-'79. While he started to move into a more straight ahead, almost crossover soul sound during those years, he cut a number of classic sides, not the least of which was Headhunters, with the monster cut "Chameleon", which is included here. Besides (and including) the Headhunters band, Herbie always pulled from the finest sidemen, including Wah Wah Watson, James Gadson, Coke Escovedo & Ndugu Chancler, who are all featured here. "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" is a monster funky groover, centered on Wah Wah Watson's snapping guitar vamp, and the vocoder soul number "I Thought It Was You" is here too! LP, Vinyl record album

You've never heard of The Winston Brothers before, but their music is definitely familiar – as the group features players from funk combos Mighty Mocambos, Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band, and Hamburg Spinners – coming together here with an equally great sense of groovy energy! The rhythms are nice and funky, with plenty of heavy drums from Lucas Kochbeck – but there's also a great ear for the odd offbeat sound, which really keeps things interesting – elements that sneak into the mix and give the record way more of an edge than just a funky combo trying to evoke the glory days. Titles include "One Thing", "Free Ride", "Brother's Strut", "Think", "Metering", "Drift", "Hang On", "Boiling Pot", and "Winston Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MaloMalo ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful 70s Latin soul from the legendary Bay Area combo that included Jorge Santana, Luis Gasca, and Coke Escovedo – all players who'd go onto great solo fame on their own, working together here as a youthfully inventive group that really set the tone for the west coast sound of the decade! This first album's a masterpiece in the California Latin Soul style – a sweet blend of Latin, jazz, funk, and rock that took up where the New York groups left off at the end of the 60s. The tracks are all pretty long – with some extremely tight instrumental playing, and plenty of room for long jamming solos. But the best part is the vocals – sung by Arcelio Garcia Jr, with a sweet style that's totally excellent. You probably already know that if you've heard the band's big hit "Suavecito", which is included here in a longer version than the original single – but you'll also hear that on the tracks "Cafe", "Pana", and "Peace".

The album features the group recorded live in the US – working in especially soulful territory that features lots of Fender Rhodes and clavinet from Takehiro Honda – plus great horn lines that flow, soar, and sparkle wonderfully with a perfect balance between tightness and soulful expression.

A really cool collection of tracks, pulled from the glory days of the jingle-oriented television ad – a time when artists like Ginny Redington would pen short little songs that were every bit as catchy as songs on the charts – to sell everything from hamburgers to soft drinks, bank services, and weight control! The tunes here are all from the vaults of Redington – and feature cool little tunes written for Coca Cola, Sprite, Canada Dry, Gino's, Minute Maid, and a number of other big brands in the 70s – some spare with just Ginny on vocals and a bit of keyboards, some with a fuller, richer style that uses more instrumentation and additional singers! The package is totally cool – and titles include "Coke Ads Life", "Open Wide America", "Plop Plop Fast Food", "Now We're Talkin Beer", "Oh Canada", "Women In Business", "The World's Best Fit", and "The Clean In Your Mouth".

✨✧ VariousFlorida Funk – Funk 45s From The Alligator State 1968 to 1975 (US pressing with bonus track) ... CD
Jazzman/Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
There's a whole lot more going down in Florida than alligators and Disney World – as you'll hear on this amazing little set! The package follows brilliantly in the tradition of Jazzman's Texas and Midwest Funk compilations – and like those collections, this one uncovers an incredible amount of under-heard music from an especially unlikely source! Florida is usually best remembered as the home of TK disco in the 70s, or contemporary club in more recent years – but back in the late 60s and early 70s, the state was a hotbed of indie funk activity – with loads of artists who were every bit as great as bigger names from points north, all working in an underground network of clubs, studios, and labels. The Jazzman team of Gerald Short and Malcolm Catto have really outdone themselves here – providing not only almost two dozen great funky tracks, but also a wealth of notes and information on each track – all served up in one really beautiful little package! The CD features a whopping 24 pages of notes and pictures all in color – with titles that include "Quit Jive'in" by Pearly Queen, "Cutting Room (Hot Pants)" by Oceanliners, "Super Cool" by Carrie Riley & The Fascinations, "Pure Funk (part 2)" by Delrays, "Do Right Man" by Sam Baker, "All The Time" by Bobby Williams & His Mar Kings, "Butterfly Theme" by Blowfly, "Lay It On Me" by Willie Johnson, "Funky Fast Bump" by The Outlaw Gang, "Na Na" by Coke, "Get Down" by The Montereys, "90% Of Me Is You" by Vanessa Kendrick, "Soft Soul" by Lavell Kamma, "Baby Don't Cry" by Third Guitar, "Spider Web" by Weston Prim & Backlash, "Soul Food" by Frankie Seay & The Soul Riders, "Save Me" by James Knight & The Butlers, and "It's Gonna Be A Mess (part 2)" by The Mighty Dogcatchers.

Lyrically, the album's maybe not out to change the world – but Pusha's got some all-star help on board to keep things on track – a lineup that includes Pharrell himself, Kanye, Kid Cudi, and Jay Z.

One of the better albums on the Alligator Records label from Chicago – a set by Fenton Robinson that's not far different from his earlier work on the 77/Sound Stage Seven label – which means that there's more of a southern soul vibe to the record at times than some of the more crowd-pleasing groups that Alligator was recording up north! Fenton has the tightness of a deep soul singer, but also relaxes nicely into his music – often letting his guitar speak as much as his lyrics – with help on second guitar from Mighty Joe Young! Easily one of the greatest albums from both Fenton and Alligator – with titles that include "I've Changed", "Country Girl", "Gotta Wake Up", "Texas Flood", "Checking On My Woman", and "Somebody Loan Me A Dime".

Jorge plays guitar, but lead vocals are from Richard Bean (of Malo and Sapo fame) – often in a sweetly crackling style that's kind of a smoother 70s update of Latin Soul modes from a few years before. Tunes are all lively, with nice hooks – never too uptempo, and carried off with a jazzy edge on most numbers. Titles include "Sandy", "Seychells", "Nobody's Perfect", "Love The Way", "We Were There", and "Tonight You're Mine". LP, Vinyl record album

Dolo CokerCalifornia Hard (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu/Elemental, 1978. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A hell of a record – and one that's not just noteworthy for being one of the rare few sessions as a leader from pianist Dolo Coker – but also for the sideman work by Art Pepper and Blue Mitchell! The pairing of Mitchell and Pepper is an unusual one, but it works wonderfully here – as Art's got a crisp, soulful tone on both alto and his newly-acquired tenor, and Mitchell blows in a real back-to-basics hardbop mode that's much more similar to his Blue Note work than his other electric sessions of the mid 70s! Yet Coker's also a cooker too – and his deft phrasing and soulful currents really make the session move – set fire by the work of Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Frank Butler on drums. Titles include "Roots 4FB", "Mr Yohe", "Tale Of Two Cities", "Jumping Jacks", and "Gone Again". CD features the bonus track "Round Midnight". CD

"April In Paris" is one of the darkest jazz standards ever written, and it never sounded better than in this original version, which features that great ending in which Basie and the band stop, then start, then stop – leaving you completely unresolved at the finish. The group's a strong one – with Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Freddie Green, Sonny Payne, Marshall Royal, Henry Coker, Joe Newman, and Thad Jones – and tracks include "Shiny Stockings", "Midgets", "Mambo Inn", "Sweety Cakes", and "Corner Pocket".

Count BasieBasie (aka E=MC2) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Roulette (Japan), 1957. Used ... $18.99
One of THE seminal Basie albums of all time – and a masterful pairing between the Count and arranger Neal Hefti! Hefti has an amazing ear for the Basie groove, and he works here to re-fit the overall sound of the group with a tighter, more fluid approach – one that ensured that they'd be alive and booming well into the 60s. The Hefti touch is one that's slightly lighter than the Basie of before – one that assumes the bump at the bottom, but never overdoes it – and instead almost uses the sound of no sound at all to carry the rhythm – while the horns at the top of the group are vamping around in these majestic charts that break out into fantastically searing solos. Basie's on piano, natch – and other players include Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Henry Coker, Al Grey, Frank Wess, Frank Foster, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Titles are all brilliant Hefti originals – and include "After Supper", "Flight Of The Foo Birds", "Teddy The Toad", "Splanky", "Fantail", and "Lil Darlin". CD

A hell of a record from the LA scene of the mid 70s – recorded by a quartet of musicians who'd gotten their start during the early bop years of the city, and who kept the flame burning brightly with great records like this! The set's noteworthy not just for a rare appearance as a leader by tight drummer Frank Butler, but also for some tremendous tenor from Jack Montrose – a musician who sounds even more powerful and expressive here than on his records from the 50s – with an open tone, and plenty of space to display a sense of imagination on his solos that he never had before! The great Dolo Coker helps keep things swinging on piano, and Monty Budwig turns out some very powerful work on bass – on titles that include the long title track "The Stepper", plus "Au Prive", "Urbane", and "Captain Kidd".

Kenny ClarkeTelefunken Blues ... CD
Savoy/Sony (Japan), 1954/1955. Used ... $11.99
One of the greatest American albums to be issued under Kenny Clarke's name – a smoking set of boppish tracks that groove in a very early 50s Blue Note sort of way! And in fact, the tracks are a bit longer than the usual Blue Note bop sides, which makes them open up with some even longer solos – and creates plenty of space for the septet lineups to do their thing. The album features 2 different groups – one with Milt Jackson on vibes, Frank Morgan on alto, Walter Benton on tenor, and Gerald Wiggins on piano; the other with Jackson on piano (!), Henry Coker on trombone, Frank Wess on tenor, and Charlie Fowlkes on baritone. Titles include "Inhibitions", "Klook's Nook", "Telefunken Blues", "Skoot", "Sonor", and "Blue's Mood". CD

Sonny CrissOut Of Nowhere (32 Jazz pressing) ... CD
Muse/32 Jazz, 1976. Used ... $4.99
Great later work from Sonny Criss – very much in the format of his late 60s work for Prestige, but with an approach that's perhaps a bit more open-ended overall! The vibe here is laidback and soulful – Sonny blowing alto sax in that wonderful, all-his-own sort of tone – a sound that's almost tenor-like in phrasing, but with a crisp alto quality that's completely sublime! The group's a batch of familiar associates, all of whom lay back wonderfully in the rhythms – Dolo Coker on piano, Larry Gales on bass, and Jimmie Smith on drums. There's a solidness here that few other players can match – and titles include the original numbers "The Dreamer" and "The First One" – plus "El Tiante", "All The Things You Are", and "Out Of Nowhere".

✨✧ Clare FischerExtension (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Pacific Jazz/International Phonograph, 1963. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
An early moment of genius from the young Clare Fischer – one of his first sets for a larger ensemble, and the start of years of great work to come! Previous Pacific Jazz sessions featured Fischer in a piano trio – but this album lets Clare loose on a host of his own inventive arrangements – a set of charts and compositions that easily move between the modern and the groovy – sometimes using offbeat tones and sounds that rival the best that Ellington or Gil Evans had to offer – other times coming across with this fluidity that's a perfect summation of the way that Fischer pulled together all of the California cool of the 50s, and managed to come up with something completely fresh for the 60s! The modern edges will come as a real surprise to those who only know Fischer's more easygoing work – and in addition to Clare's own work on piano and organ, the record also features Jerry Coker on tenor, Gary Foster on tenor and clarinet, Jack Nimitz on bass clarinet and baritone, Sam Most and John Lowe on flutes, and Don Shelton on alto – all working with reed interplay that's completely sublime. Titles include "Bittersweet", "Igor", "Canto Africano", "Extension", "Passacaglia", and "Ornithardy". CD

Burton GreeneOne World Music ... CD
Cat/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
One of the warmest, most beautiful albums we've ever heard from pianist Burton Greene – a set that's got a nicely unique vibe in comparison to some of his other albums of the time – maybe a bit more of a swing at times, and a nice current of soul as well! One of the strongest elements of the record is the work on reeds from Fred Leeflang – a player we don't know at all, but who plays soprano, alto, and tenor with a nice rasp in his tone, and a good sense of angles – but at a level that's never too far out, and often matched well with the rhythms from Raoul Van Der Weide on bass and Clarence Becton on drums. Greene is a perfect bridge between everything – with a majestic command of the keys and often a strong modal sensibility – on titles that include "Round Robbin", "Portuguese Impressions", "Cokertme", "63rd & Cottage Grove", and "When You're In Front Get Off My Back".

Other players include Pepper Adams on baritone, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and either Charles Coker or Sonny Clark on piano – a killer lineup that makes sure that the album explodes with new ideas throughout!

Blue Note/Roulette, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of THE seminal Basie albums of all time – and a masterful pairing between the Count and arranger Neal Hefti! Hefti has an amazing ear for the Basie groove, and he works here to re-fit the overall sound of the group with a tighter, more fluid approach – one that ensured that they'd be alive and booming well into the 60s. The Hefti touch is one that's slightly lighter than the Basie of before – one that assumes the bump at the bottom, but never overdoes it – and instead almost uses the sound of no sound at all to carry the rhythm – while the horns at the top of the group are vamping around in these majestic charts that break out into fantastically searing solos. Basie's on piano, natch – and other players include Thad Jones, Joe Newman, Henry Coker, Al Grey, Frank Wess, Frank Foster, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Titles are all brilliant Hefti originals – and include "After Supper", "Flight Of The Foo Birds", "Teddy The Toad", "Splanky", "Fantail", and "Lil Darlin".

A full plate of funky freakout grooves from the Turkish scene – compiled one and all from 7-inch records made from the end of the 60s to the dawn of the 80s! It's a mix of psych folk, funk, more traditional buzzing strings and hypnotic melodies – pretty wonderful all the way! Turkey's been a fertile wonderland of psych era sounds for deep diggers the past few years, but the quality level varies. This is one of the great ones, both for the music and for thick booklet of notes with info on each track. A far reaching set stylistically, with western jazz influences played with Turkish instruments, dreamy folkish melodies, rawer garage style grooves, heavy rhythms and spacier gems! Titles include "Dokuz Sekiz" by Okay Temiz, "Cokertme" by Kardaslar, "Sevdigim" by Erkin Koray, "Hal Hal" by Baris Manco, "Iciyorum" by Ajda Pekkan, "Osman Whlivan" by Arif Sag, "Gunese Don Cicegim" by Ersen and more.

Junior Cook's tenor really is tremendous on the record – played with a sharp, raspy tone that's almost deeper than his work with Horace Silver – a cutting quality that almost reminds us of Clifford Jordan at his best. Mitchell's great too – really spurred on by this sound, and finding some new notes in the setting – and other players on the date include Gene Taylor on bass and Roy Brooks on drums, both from the Silver group – plus piano from either Ronnie Matthews or Dolo Coker, each of whom handle half of the set. Matthews is especially great – a real treat at this early point in his career – and titles on the set include the sublime "Mzar", plus "Blue Farouq", "Sweet Cakes", "Turbo Village", "Field Day", and "Pleasure Bent".

The Gil Evans tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still contains plenty of rich new ideas. Players include Louis Mucci, John Carisi, Steve Lacy, Willie Ruff, Paul Chambers, Nick Stabulis, and Lee Konitz on alto. Titles include "Ella Speed", "Big Stuff", "Jambangle", "Nobody's Heart", and "Remember". Tadd Dameron's contributions here are from a wonderful modernist session – and one that's especially great because it's filled with fresh themes that get past some of his over-reissued standards! Players here include Clifford Brown and Idrees Sulieman on trumpets, Gigi Gryce on alto, Benny Golson on tenor, and Dameron on piano. Titles include "Philly JJ", "Choose Now", "Theme Of No Repeat", and "Dial B For Beauty". Also included are readings of classic Dameron compositions – like "The Scene Is Clean", "Fontainebleau", and "Delerium" – all played by a great little group that includes Dameron on piano, plus Joe Alexander on tenor, Sahib Shihab on alto, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Henry Coker on trombone.

The set's got an unusual element in that it features some electric bass from Harvey Newmark – who plays in an otherwise acoustic setting, but gives the tunes maybe this light little bounce – a hint of funk at times, with a rolling element that makes the whole thing a bit different than just a rehash of the old days. Also noteworthy is pianist Dolo Coker, who plays mostly acoustic piano – with that pointed tone that was always such a unique approach – and who also handles a bit of Fender Rhodes, but in a completely different way. Even when Newmark's playing acoustic bass, he's still got a great round tone that really drives the set – and the group's completed by the excellent Jimmie Smith on drums.

The set features material recorded in the late 50s, pulled together to form an album in the early 70s – and overall, it's some of the best Art Pepper work on record we can think of. Pepper plays beautifully on 4 tracks with tenorist Warne Marsh, and the rest of the cuts features equally great accompaniment from the likes of Jimmy Bond, Dolo Coker, Philly Joe Jones, and Red Garland. The material on the album is far fresher than most of Pepper's so-called "classic" sessions, and it shows the edge and creativity of his alto playing in a way that few other albums ever do. We really recommend this one if you've ever been disappointed by another Pepper album – because there's a sharpness here that really comes through.

The material on the album is far fresher than most of Pepper's so-called "classic" sessions, and it shows the edge and creativity of his alto playing in a way that few other albums ever do. We really recommend this one if you've ever been disappointed by another Pepper album – because there's a sharpness here that really comes through. Titles include "All the Things You Are", "What's New", "Autumn Leaves", and "The Man I Love". CD features 2 bonus tracks – alternates of "All The Things You Are" and "I Can't Believe You're In Love With Me". CD

✨✧ VariousGirls Gonna Bop – Rockin Girls From The Late 50s ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great female rock from the end of the 50s – music that's got a mighty strong influence from rockabilly, hillbilly bop, and a fair bit of R&B – not to mention some of the bigger male singers of the time! Some of these cuts are covers, some are answer songs, and some are especially nice originals – and together, they offer up a hard-rocking set of all-gal tunes that are quite different from some of the sweeter pop material of the time! Take Wanda Jackson and Janis Martin as a starting point – then let your imagination run wild as the set opens up into a great range of singles from a variety of scenes – all unified by a no-nonsense sort of vibe. Titles include "Flipsville" by Stormy Gayle, "Move it On Over" by Rose Maddox, "Buddy" by Jackie Dee, "Razzle Dazzle" by Ella May Morse, "Black Cadillac" by Joyce Green, "Sentimental Fool" by Barbara Pittman, "Rocky Rolly Lover Boy" by Judy Faye, "Chili Dippin Baby" by Joyce Poynter, "He's A Real Gone Guy" by Anita Carter, "Just Whistle Or Call" by Martha Carson, "We're Gonna Bop" by Alvadean Coker, "Mercy" by Lorrie & Larry Collins, "Sugar Lump" by Patsy Ruth Elshire, and "Counting Sheep Over You" by Linda Glover.

✨✧ Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins (Everest) (aka Sonny Rollins Plays) ... LP
Everest, 1957. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A legendary split album from the hardbop underground of the 50s – two different sides by two different artists – both of them great! Side one features stunning work from Sonny Rollins – blowing at a level that matches his early gems for Blue Note, with that razor-sharp tone and sense of timing – and a style that's already beginning to move away from some of the more familiar conventions of bop. Sonny's tracks only include three numbers – but all are worth the price of admission – and feature Rollins on tenor with Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Gil Coggins on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kenny Dennis on drums – on the titles "Like Someone In Love", "Sonnymoon For Two", and "Theme From Pathetique Symphony". Thad Jones really shines on side two – an early demonstration of his conception for a larger group, but done at a level that's looser than some of his big band recordings with Mel Lewis. The group features tremendous tenor from Frank Foster on two tracks that also have piano by Jimmy Jones – and one longer number features Frank Wess instead on tenor, with Henry Coker on trombone and Tommy Flanagan on piano. This lineup performs a longer "Ballad Medley" – while Foster blows on "Lust For Life" and "I Got It Thad & That Ain't Bad". LP, Vinyl record album
