✨✧ Albert CollinsTruckin With Albert Collins ... CD
Coral/MCA, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work from Albert Collins – the kind of mean, lean music that Collins specialized in before his later years of cliche – served up here in a style that's almost more funk than blues overall! The tracks are all instrumentals, with lots of raw guitar and soulful saxophone – coming across with a rootsy feel that's much more in the mode of work on a soul-based indie than you'd expect from the usual slicker sides on Blue Thumb – hardly smooth LA, and instead almost a funky 45 vibe overall! The titles give a good example of the stripped-down sound of the tunes – and they include "Kool Aide", "Thaw Out", "Hot N Cold", "Frosty", "Tremble", and "Icy Blue". 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 ... $6.99
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.)

Dave BrubeckDave Brubeck Octet ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $3.99
A full LP that combines early work by Dave Brubeck – pulled together from a few 10" LPs, and packaged in a nice cartoony cover. The record features the work of his octet – a group that gives a rare opportunity to hear Brubeck in a large group setting, and one that also features work by Cal Tjader on drums (!), plus Dick Collins and Paul Desmond on their usual instruments. Titles include "The Prisoner's Song", "Prelude", "IPCA", "Fugue On Bop Themes", "Schizophrenic Scherzo", "Playland At The Beach", and "Serenade Suite". CD

Paul DesmondPaul Desmond Quintet/Quartet (Desmond/Paul Desmond Quartet Featuring Don Elliott) ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, Early 50s. Used ... $3.99
A key look at the early career of alto genius Paul Desmond – work recorded in the 50s away from the company of Dave Brubeck – a real rarity for the time! The first 8 tracks on the set are from the unique Desmond album – a session that features 4 tracks with Paul in a quintet with Dick Collins on trumpet and Dave Van Kriedt on tenor sax – working without a piano, and in a fluid-grooving style that recalls a lot of the Gerry Mulligan style of the time. The other 4 tracks from the set are even more unique – and have Desmond blowing dreamily over a "with voices" chorus – done with the Bill Bates singers in a style that's warmer than similar work by Charlie Parker, and which really points the way towards some of the Desmond solo genius of the 60s. The remaining 8 tracks on the set are from the Paul Desmond Quartet With Don Elliott – and a gem of a set that sounds quite different than even the other two on the set! The group's a quartet, playing again with no piano – and features Don Elliott on trumpet, Norman Bates (Joe from the Brubeck group) on bass, and Joe Chevrolet (aka Joe Doge, also from Brubeck) on drums – all swinging in an airy mode that's kind of a cross between Desmond's work with the Brubeck group, and some of Gerry Mulligan's early 50s recordings. Titles include "A Watchman's Carroll", "Jazzabelle", "Look For The Silver Lining", "Sacre Blues", and "Line For Lyons". CD

Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... $4.99
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

✨✧ Merle HaggardStrangers/Swinging Doors (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1965/1966. Used ... $12.99
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)".

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".

Carmen McRaeAny Old Time (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Denon/Jazz Heritage, 1986. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A warm later set from Carmen McRae – recorded with great small combo jazz backing that features tenor sax work from Clifford Jordan! The album's a real back-to-basics one for McRae – and gets away from crossover modes used in the 60s and 70s, taking Carmen back to the more jazz-based sound of her earliest records – but going even one further by bringing in Jordan, since Carmen mostly started out with straight trio backing. Other players include Eric Gunnison on piano and John Collins on guitar – and the tunes themselves are mostly standards, sung with impeccable phrasing. Titles include "Tulip Or Turnip", "Body & Soul", "I Hear Music", "This Is Always", "It Could Happen To You", "Old Devil Moon", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". CD

✨✧ Gene O'QuinBoogie Woogie Fever ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. Used ... $8.99
A country guitar firebrand in the tradition of Speedy West, Joe Maphis, and the Collins Brothers, with an unmistakable Hank Williams-inspired croon! In the early 50s Gene was a crucial rung on the ladder that lead to rock and roll, and this Bear Family collection of 30 of his tunes is the first of his previously (almost) lost recordings to make it to CD! Tracks include the great "Boogie Woogie Fever", "The Pinball Millionaire", "You Name It (She's Got It)", "Texas Boogie", "I Specialize In Love", "No Parking Here", "I'll Stop Loving You", "It's No Wonder", "Tired", "You Played Around With My Heart", "You're Smiling At Another", "I Searched The Crowd", and lots more. Also included is a nice and thick booklet – a nice historical portrait to connect with the records! CD

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2CD ... $2.99
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

VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. Used ... $4.99
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.

✨✧ Gregory IsaacsSlum In Dub ... CD
Burning Sounds/Secret (UK), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the Revolutionaries, with rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and keyboards from Ansel Collins – all mixed beautifully by a young Prince Jammy, at King Tubby's studio! The use of echo and odd electric bits at the edges is completely sublime – and titles include "Slum", "Reform Institution", "Tam Tam", "Leaving", "Public Eyes", and "Leggo Beast". CD

Includes "Dub Organizer", "Arabian Rock", "Pablo In Dub", "Skateland Rock", "Dread Eye" and "Lover's Mood". Classic! CD

✨✧ Sun RaSun Ra & The Year 2000 Myth Science Arkestra Live At The Hackney Empire ... CD
Leo (UK), 1990. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Sun Ra never lived long enough to see the new millenium – but he's working here a decade before with a unique Year 2000 Myth Science Arkestra, heard on a famous London performance presented in its entirety! The lineup here is a bit different than the usual Arkestra – and players include Jothan Collins on trumpet, Tyrone Hill on trombone, Noel Scott on alto sax, Charles Davis on baritone sax, John Gilmore on tenor, India Cooke on violin, Talvin Singh on tabla, and Elson Nascimento on percussion – as well as June Tyson on vocals and Sun Ra on a range of keyboards. The performance has an especially bold, proud feel – no doubt because of the high profile of the concert at the time, done when Ra's work was being discovered and embraced by a whole new generation of critics and listeners in the UK. 2CD set features 17 tracks in all – including "Astro Black", "Planet Earth Day", "Yeah Man", "Skimming & Loping", "Sunset On The Nile", "Frisco Fog", "East Of The Sun", "String Singhs/Discipline 27-11/I'll Wait For You", "Face The Music", "Blue Lou", and "Love In Outer Space".
