✨✧ Dick Collins & His OrchestraKing Richard The Swing Hearted ... CD
RCA/BMG (Spain), 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A swing-hearted set from trumpeter Dick Collins – one that has the musician working with three other hornmen in a tight trumpet frontline! The record's got some relatively full arrangement, but swings nicely with tracks that stretch out a bit more than usual for RCA – and tenors get their play too, thanks to a "brothers" styled group that features Al Cohn, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca. Some of the better cuts stretch past the 6 minute mark – supported by rhythms from Nat Pierce on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Red Kelly on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – and titles include "The Winter of My Discontent", "Donna Mia", "Northern Comfort", and "Hold Me Hold Me Hold Me".

Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... $4.99
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". CD

James BrownLove Power Peace – Live At The Olympia Paris 1971 ... CD
Polydor, 1971. Used ... $3.99
A lost treasure from James Brown & The JBs – a vintage live performance from the early 70s, and one that captures the group at the height of their powers! The format here is very similar to the excellent Revolution Of The Mind set – a totally funky, totally righteous live performance that has James and the group even more energized than in the studio – working with the kind of razor-sharp intensity that made them a legendary funk act – leaping from tune to tune with nary a break at all! Bobby Byrd acts as the MC, and joins James for a bit of vocals – and the group at this point still includes Bootsy Collins on bass, plus loads of great guitar from Catfish Collins, and Fred Wesley on trombone and Jabo Starks on drums. Dave Matthews handled some of the arrangements – and titles include "Soul Power", "Sex Machine", "Bewildered", "It's A New Day", "Ain't It Funky Now", "Brother Rapp", "Super Bad", "Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/I Got You/I Got The Feelin".

Les BrownComplete Song Books (Jazz Song Book/Swing Song Book) ... CD
Coral/Lonehill (Spain), 1959. Used ... $4.99
2 great little albums from Les Brown – a real return to greatness at the end of the 50s! Jazz Song Book is a sublime set that's built strongly around solo contributions from players that include Buddy DeFranco, Terry Gibbs, Frank Rosolino, Zoot Sims, Don Fagerquist, and Ronnie Lang – all players who are quite comfortable in a large group setting, but really know how to make the most of their solo space when it comes around! Brown put the album together in a way that shifts the focus between soloists from track to track – and the different voicings really give each number a great sense of mood, even when the tunes themselves are familiar ones. Arrangements are by Bill Holman, and titles include "Pizza Boy", "The Claw", "Love Is Here To Stay", "Chelsea Bridge", "Willow Weep For Me", "King Phillip Stomp", and "Let's Get Away From It All". Swing Song Book offers up some great modern interpretations of jazz numbers from an earlier age – arranged tightly by Billy May, for a set of players that includes Dick Collins, Abe Most, Stumpy Brown, Billy Usselton, and Howard Roberts. The sound is strongly ensemble-based – with beautiful horn parts that are filled with deep tones, yet still manage to swing – a bit like Stan Kenton before he'd gone too modern at the start of the 50s. Titles include "Lean Baby", "Pick Yourself Up", "Early Autumn", "Moten Swing", "Take The A Train", and "I Want To Be Happy". CD
(Note: There seem to be a few very short moments in which the sound is slightly distored – but these are minor, possibly from the master tapes.)

Frank FosterManhattan Fever (Blue Note) (with previously unreleased album) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. Used ... $11.99
Lean, righteous blowing from the legendary Frank Foster – one of a handful of extremely hip sessions he cut in the 60s under his own name! The album's the only record Foster ever did for Blue Note – and we dare say it's even better than his previous 60s work on Prestige and Impulse – with a quality that's even darker, even deeper, even more advanced from his earlier years with Basie. There's a rolling, joyous groove to many numbers – that late 60s take on soul jazz that made for so many great tracks on albums by Hank Mobley or Lee Morgan near the end of the decade. Foster keeps things tight, but he's also got an expansive vision too – an edge in the horns that points the way towards some of the chances he'd take in the 70s, but which is still wrapped around a leanly leaping soul jazz groove! Foster wrote 5 of the 6 tracks on the album, and he's working here with a sextet that includes Garnett Brown on trombone, Marvin Stamm on trumpet, and Richard Wyands on piano, who brings in some offbeat notes and colors throughout. Rhythm is by the excellent team of Bob Cranshaw on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – and titles include "Seventh Avenue Bill", "Stammpede", "Little Miss No Nose", "Manhattan Fever", and "Loneliness". Added to the core album is a full bonus album – recorded by Foster nearly a year after the first, and even more far-reaching! There's a quality to the date that mixes together Frank's previous soulful vamping with some more introspective, more lyrical moments – almost modern at times, but not entirely so – and played by a septet that includes Ed Pazant on alto and flute, Burt Collins on trumpet, George Cables on piano, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone. Foster himself plays a bit of alto clarinet alongside his usual tenor – and titles include "Fly By Night", "Slug's Bag", "What's New From The Monster Mill", and "Hip Shakin". CD

Woody Herman Octet & BandBlues & Swing Groove ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $8.99
A very unusual side of Woody Herman's career – one that features the mid 50s octet he put together to play live shows in Las Vegas! The lineup in the group is unusual – with two trumpets by Dick Collins and Johnny Coppola, bass trumpet by Cy Touff, tenor by Richie Kamuca, piano by Norman Pockrandt, and drums by Chuck Flores – plus clarinet and vocals from Woody himself, all in a very grooving sort of style! Arrangements are by Coppola, Touff, and Ralph Burns – and the vocal numbers really set the sound of the record strongly – showing a lively, entertaining side of Herman's talents that didn't always come through on other records. The use of trumpets, especially bass trumpet, makes for a very heavy bottom sound – especially considering that there's no bass in the group – and titles include "Bass Face", "Junior", "The Boot", "9:20 Special", "Bag's Groove", "Broadway", and "Wailing Wall". CD then moves on to feature 7 more numbers from a fuller Woody Herman band in 1956 – with Kamuca, Collins, Victor Feldman, and Vince Guaraldi – on titles that include "Pinetop's Blues", "Blues Groove", "Trouble In Mind", "Smack Dab In The Middle", and "I Want A Little Girl".

ParliamentMothership Connection (Remastered & Expanded) ... CD
Casablanca/Mercury, 1975. Used ... $3.99
Here's where it all happens – the huge culmination of all the years of heavy funk and psychedelic soul created by George Clinton and the P-Funk empire – fused into an amazingly tight groove that helped win over much bigger audiences than ever before! The album title and cover are very fitting – as George Clinton launches the mothership, forges his classic space-funk image, and blows the P-Funk empire into an arena-filling mega-star act – all with grooves that are still some of the tightest, sharpest funk you'll ever hear – all these many decades later. The instrumentation is razor-sharp – played by giants like Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, and Bernie Worrell – and the lyrics still have all the edginess and naughtiness of the earlier years – tied together wonderfully to make a very unified album, and one that's full of classics too! Titles include "Mothership Connection (Star Child)", "Night Of The Thumpasorus Peoples", "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)", "Handcuffs", "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)", and "Unfunky Ufo". CD features a bonus version of "Star Child", a promo radio version! CD

✨✧ Benny CarterFurther Definitions (plus Additions To Further Definitions) ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove! In addition to Benny's alto, the record also features tenor sax from Charlie Rouse and Coleman Hawkins, plus one more alto from Phil Woods – supported by rhythm from John Collins on guitar, Dick Katz on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Jo Jones on drums. The tunes are traditional, but have some sharper-edged modern ideas on some of the solos – and there's a nicely echoey feel to the production, which further adds to the quality of the record. The album's a bit like a Swingville session for Prestige, but has a bit more going on – and titles include "Doozy", "Blue Star", "Midnight Sun Will Never Set", and "Crazy Rhythm". CD also features a full bonus album – the record Additions To Further Definitions! CD

✨✧ Merle HaggardStrangers/Swinging Doors (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1965/1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Merle's debut album, and a benchmark in the history of country and popular music! Hag's role as country's most mournful outlaw hadn't fully evolved at this early point in his career but the seeds are planted, with the single "(My Friends Are Gonna Be) Strangers" and "The Worst Is Yet To Come" as the most obvious sign posts for what would come in subsequent years. Other tracks include "Sing A Sad Song", "I'd Trade All Of My Tomorrows", "You Don't Even Try", and "Walking The Floor Over You". Next up is Swinging Doors – a classic that swung open all kinds of doors for Hag and all honky tonk legends to follow! The barroom laments come into full bloom on this record, with the unvarnished honky tonk style that Hag helped define, though done with just enough Capitol polish, courtesy of the great and legendary producers Ken Nelson and Fuzzy Owen. It contains uber-classic "The Bottle Let Me Down" plus the equally great title track, plus comparably overlooked album classics like "I'll Look You Over", "The Girl Turned Ripe", "No More You & Me", "I Can't Stand Me", "No More You And Me" a great version of the Tommy Collins classic and Bakersfield Sound bedrock "High On A Hilltop", and "Shade Tree (Fix-It Man)".

✨✧ Jethro TullBenefit (2CD/DVD deluxe edition) ... CD
Chrysalis, 1970. Used 2 CD & DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits – which may well make it even fresher all these many years later – a really stunning set of sounds that showcases the newly lyrical sensibility of Ian Anderson – both vocally and on flute – as well as the searing guitar of Martin Barre, which was really becoming a core element of the group at this point. Titles include "For Michael Collins Jefferey & Me", "Inside", "Play In Time", "Sossity You're A Woman", "With You There To Help Me", and "Nothing To Say". Beautiful 2CD version – with a brilliant new 2013 mix, plus loads of extra tracks that include "Singing All Day", "Sweet Dream", "17", "Inside (single version)", "Alive & Well & Living In (mono)", and a whole host of variations on the rare single/album variations of "The Witch's Promise" and "Teacher" – with other mono work, and even some radio spots too! DVD audio features the whole album plus 5 extra tracks – all in the new mixes! CD

✨✧ Paul Quinichette, Buck Clayton, Nat Pierce, et alBasie Reunion ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title tells the tale on this one – as the session's a studio meeting of players all associated with Count Basie over the years – captured here in a style that's much more laidback and relaxed than the usual Basie set! The album's got the feel of some of Prestige's best work in the Swingville series, but also has an approach that's almost in the blowing session mode – with long tracks on the album that really let each player step out in their own voice. The lineup includes Paul Quinichette on tenor, Buck Clayton and Shad Collins on trumpet, Jack Washington on baritone sax, Nat Pierce on piano, Freddie Greene on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums – and titles include "Blues I Love To Hear", "Love Jumped Out", "John's Idea", and "Baby Don't Tell On Me".

✨✧ Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite recordings ever of George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess – done by Bethlehem Records in the mid 50s, and featuring nearly every one of the label's great talents at the time! The choice of the lead characters is a bit odd – as Mel Torme plays Porgy and Francis Faye plays Bess – but both singers are actually pretty darn great for the set, and really bring a lot out of the tunes. Plus, the other artists on the set really keep things interesting – as the collection features vocal performances by Johnny Hartman, Frank Rosolino, Betty Roche, Bob Dorough, and Sallie Blair. Plus, the whole thing's presented as Gershwin wrote it – complete with narration by Al Jazzbo Collins, and a number of strong instrumental passages. Music is performed by groups led by Russ Garcia, Duke Ellington, Pat Moran, and Stan Levy – and players are an array of the best of both the New York and LA scenes at the time! Plus, this great reissue version features a full 29 minute bonus track – the "Porgy & Bess Suite", which is an extended instrumental performed by Russ Garcia. Also comes with a really great 48 page booklet too! CD

✨✧ Leo WrightSuddenly The Blues ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record of incredible beauty from the great Leo Wright – and one that we'd never part with at all! Wright's one of those excellent players from the 60s who never really gets his due – largely because he was always hiding behind larger groups, and because he left the US in the decade for an extended stint in Europe. Still he cut some fantastic early work with both Dizzy Gillespie and Lalo Schifrin – and this album captures him right during the peak of that early period! The record features light lively backing from a quartet that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and some tracks have a beautifully groovy sound that's slightly bossa, slightly soul jazz. One of the best of these is Wright's great cover of "A Felicidade", but the record contains many other great moments, like "The Wiggler", "Tali", "Sassy Lady", and "Dionysis". CD

✨✧ VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Massive sounds from Columbia Records – a smoking set of rockabilly numbers that the legendary label cut during a time when it was making most of its money selling mainstream pop, classical music, and Broadway showtunes albums! Yet beneath all that big-cash production, Columbia found the time to get some amazing records cut in the studio – searing tracks that still bristle with plenty of power and raw energy all these many years later – and which easily match the fire and frenzy of singles you'd hear from some of the more obscure indies that are always prized by collectors of early rock singles! Some artists are Columbia country singers, stepping out for much more gritty action on cuts like these – others are more obscure rock acts that hit the label's roster far from the clean pop of Mitch Miller – and the CD features 25 gems that include "Whistle Bait" by Larry Collins, "Dig Boy Dig" by Freddie Hart, "Big Fool" by Ronnie Self, "I Got A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Romp Stompin Boogie" by Jaycee Hill, "Good Rockin Baby" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Mama Blues" by Marty Robbins, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "Ah Poor Little Baby" by Billy Crash Craddock, "Hoy Hoy" by Collins Kids, "Everybody's Rockin" by Werly Fairburn, "Rawhide" by Link Wray, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Ugly & Slouchy" by Maddox Brothers.

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from one of Dizzy's greatest periods – and an album not to pass up! The set features Diz playing 5 old bop tunes, and 4 new tracks from the pen of the great Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After", "This Lovely Afternoon", "Good Bait", "Dizzy Atmosphere" and the non-LP cut "Early Mornin' Blues". CD
