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 ... $1.99
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 ... $1.99
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.)

Benny CarterFurther Definitions (plus Additions To Further Definitions) ... CD
Impulse, 1961. Used ... $4.99
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

Woody Herman Octet & BandBlues & Swing Groove ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $6.99
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".

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinTin Tin Deo (aka Lalo=Brilliance/Eso Es Latin Jazz, Man) ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sublime early work from Lalo Schifrin! The CD features work recorded by Schifrin in New York in 1962 – back when he was fresh in from Argentina, the hot young Latin pianist working in Dizzy Gillespie's crack early 60s combo – work that was originally issued on 2 rare LPs, Lalo=Brilliance, issued by Roulette, and the album Eso Es Latin Jazz Man, issued by Audio Fidelity under the name of trumpeter Antonio "Chocolate" Diaz Mena. 8 tracks feature Lalo working with a very hip sextet that includes Leo Wright, Jimmy Raney, Art Davis, Rudy Collins, and Willie Rodriguez – and another 5 cuts feature a larger group with Wright, Seldon Powell, Jerome Richardson, and Chocolate Diaz. At this point in his career, Lalo's easily comfortable with hard Latin jazz and bossa nova alike – and the 13 tunes on the set are as fine a batch of south of the border jazz tunes as you'd ever hope to find on our site! Titles include "The Snake's Dance", "Kush", "Cubano Be", "Mambo Jazz Opus No 7", "Sphyros", "Mount Olive", and "An Evening In Sao Paolo". CD

✨✧ Cal TjaderTjader Plays Tjazz ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, 1955. Used ... $8.99
The title gets it right on this one – as the set's one of Cal's greatest straight jazz albums of the early years – done in a harder, and more soulful mode than some of his Latin-based sets from the time! The album features 2 different groups, both of them great – a main quintet that includes Brew Moore on tenor and Sonny Clarke on piano – and an additional quartet that features Bob Collins on trombone and Eddie Duran on guitar. The use of horns on the set is a nice change from some of the heavily percussive styles of Cal's other Fantasy records – and Moore's work on the album is especially nice, with some strong tenor moments that really make the album! Titles include "Moten Swing", "I've Never Been In Love Before", "Imagination", "I'll Know", "Brew's Blues", "A Minor Goof", and "How About You". CD

VariousBokoor Beats – Vintage Afrobeat ... CD
Otrabanda, 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet compilation of highlife, Afrosoul, rock and funk from over the years – a collection of material recorded by Brit John Collins at his Bokoor Studio in Ghana in the 70s and early 80s for the most part, with a few later recordings – a solid majority by the incredible Bokoor Band! The Bokoor Band numbers are on par with some of the greatest Afrorock of that era or any other period, a hypnotic blend of African percussion and guitars influenced by Western funk and rock as much as indigenous African grooves. And while the Bokoor Band sort of serves as the house band for the heart of this compilation, the other combos are similarly top notch, and the titles include "Maya Gari", "Yeah Yeah Ku Yeah", "There Is Time", "Trouble Man", "Now Comes Another Day" and more by Bokoor Band, "Atiadele" by Mangwana Stars, "Onam Bebe Basa" by JD Jazz and "Anoma Franoas" by Oyihwam Internationals.

✨✧ Rosemary ClooneyRosie Sings Bing ... CD
Concord, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title here shouldn't be Rosie Sings Bing, but Rosie Swings Bing – because on this late 70s session, Clooney does a great job of updating older Crosby standards – taking them into much hipper small combo jazz territory, and really shaking them free of some of their over-remembered cliches! Don't get us wrong, because we've got nothing against Der Bingle – and we certainly love his duets with Clooney from the 50s – but this album's a whole new thing entirely, and is really the proper sort of tribute to a singer – one that can help his genius live on for a whole new generation! Backings here are by a small jazz group that includes Nat Pierce on piano, Scott Hamilton on tenor, and Cal Collins on guitar – and titles include "Blue Skies", "But Beautiful", "Where The Blue Of The Night", "I Surrender Dear", "It's Easy To Remember", and "I Wished On The Moon".

✨✧ ParliamentMothership Connection (Remastered & Expanded) ... CD
Casablanca/Mercury, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 2 – For What It's Worth ... CD
Motor (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
For what it's worth, this is a pretty wonderful compilation – only the second volume in the legendary Mojo Club series, but already hipper than most sets of this nature coming out these days! The package is filled with classic jazz, funk, soul, and bossa groovers – and was really one of the first to tackle this territory, at least with such depth, and in the hands of a major label (hats off again to Universal Germany!) The set list is wonderful – with 14 great tracks that include "Hicky Burr" by Quincy Jones, "Mr Clean" by Peter Herbholzheimer, "Monticello" by Monty Alexander, "Johnny Shaft" by Sammy Davis Jr, "For What It's Worth" by Sergio Mendes, "Gator Tail" by Lee Dorsey, "Boo-ga-loo" by Les McCann, "You Can't Love Me If You Don't Respect Me" by Lyn Collins, "Swimmin Home Baby" by Willis Jackson, "That Kaycee Thing" by Nathan Davis, and "Put Your Gun Down Brother" by Riot.
