Joyce CollinsGirl Here Plays Mean Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzland (Japan), 1960. Used ... $26.99
The girl here DOES play mean piano – using her instrument in a way that's surprisingly soulful and filled with lyrical touches! We really don't know Collins much at all – but we've always dug this standout album on Jazzland, part of the label's wave of new discoveries right at the start of the 60s – and the set's got almost an Oscar Peterson Trio sort of vibe, with tunes that hit hard rhythmically one minute, then lay back into more intimate expressions the next. Rhythm here is by the team of Roy Green on bass and Frank Butler on drums – and tracks include versions of "Day In Day Out", "The End Of A Love Affair", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "Walkin", and "Ah Moore".

Lyn CollinsCheck Me Out If You Don't Know Me By Now (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1975. Used ... $29.99
The mellower of Lyn Collins' two albums for the People label – but still pretty darn fantastic! At some level, it seems like Lyn's taking on the rest of the soul industry – showing them that she can kick some major booty on her interpretations of hits like "Backstabbers", "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Try A Little Tenderness", and "Mr Big Stuff", which is one of her best funky tracks ever, and better than Jean Knight's original! She also shines extremely well on the original cuts, though – especially the funky classic "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", plus the often-overlooked mellow soul groovers "To Each His Own", "Put It On The Line", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up". Production by James Brown, of course! CD

Rosemary ClooneyRosie Sings Bing ... CD
Concord, 1978. Used ... $14.99
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".

King CrimsonIn The Wake Of Poseidon ... CD
EG, 1970. Used ... $9.99
A wonderful second record from King Crimson – a set that follows in the same territory as the debut – with Greg Lake on vocals and Robert Fripp on guitar and devices – alongside Michael Giles on drums and Peter Giles on bass. There's some great jazzy touches at times – saxes and flute from Mel Collins and piano from Keith Tippet – and Peter Sinfield wrote the lyrics for Fripp's music – and Gordon Haskell sings a bit too.

Sun RaSun Ra Arkestra – Live In Ulm, 1992 ... CD
Leo (UK), 1992. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
A wonderful late live set from Sun Ra – recorded less than a year before Ra himself left this planet – but featuring a wonderfully soulful version of the Arkestra! Ra's piano isn't as prominent here as in earlier recordings – but the younger members of the group have really set their own sort of fire to the music – especially trumpeters Ahmed Abdullah and Michael Ray, and trombonist Tyrone Hill – all of whom really shine in the performance! The group also features Marshall Allen on alto and flute, James Jacson on bassoon and flute, Bruce Edwards on guitar, Jothan Collins on electric bass, and Elso Nascimento Dos Santos and Atakatune on percussion – a lineup that's possibly less "classic", but which also really shows a fresh sense of invention – as these players really make new strides with the cosmic energy of Ra's inspiration. Things are tight, but very spiritual and soaring, too – almost more of a return to 70s modes after some of the Arkestra styles of the 80s – and the 2CD set features the full live set, even encores – with tracks that include "Ankhnaton", "The Mayan Temples", "Fate In A Pleasant Mood", "Theme Of The Stargazers", "Nameless One No 2", "The Shadow World", "They'll Come Back", and "Calling Planet Earth".

Lyle Workman & OthersSuperbad – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Lakeshore, 2007. Used ... $4.99
Classic funk and some great contemporary tracks too – new music recorded for the score by a supergroup that features Bootsy Collins on bass and vocals, Bernie Worrell on clavinet and organ, Catfish Collins on guitar, and Clyde Stubblefield on drums! These new tracks are surprisingly good – penned and recorded with a classic 70s feel – and produced with just the right touches to make them come off with the right sort of feel next to the older tunes added to the soundtrack. Original cuts include "Flashback Party Weekend", "Seth Pulls Into Lot", "Super What", "Seth Runs On Track", "Evan's Basement Jam", and "Sleeping Bags". Other cuts include "Do Me" by Jean Knight, "Too Hot To Stop" and "Soul Finger" by The Bar-Kays, "Bustin Out" by Rick James, "PS I Love You" by Curtis Mayfield, and "Here I Come" by The Roots. CD

VariousTighten Up – Vol 3 ... CD
Trojan, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
Third volume in Trojan's classic reggae and rocksteady compilation series. Most of the numbers here were huge UK club hits in the late 60s and early 70s, when reggae was hitting hard on the British scene, and they still sound fresh today, plus these reissue packages add a bunch of bonus tracks, thirteen on this volume! Includes the Maytals "Monkey Man", Dave Barker & the Upsetters "Shocks Of Mighty", Jimmy Cliff "Suffering", King Stitt & Andy Capp "Herbsman", Derrick Harriott & the Chosen Few "Psychedelic Train", John Holt "Stealing Stealing", Tmmy McCook & the Supersonics "Open Jaw", Bob Marley & the Wailers "Soul Shakedown Party" and Ansel Collins "High Voltage (aka Monkey)".

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsStanley Dance Sessions – High & Mighty Hawk (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Felsted/Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A near-forgotten gem from Coleman Hawkins excellent late 50s period – recorded for the short-lived Felsted label, and done in a beautifully relaxed way! The tracks here are long and easy-going – at times even more open than Hawkins' work for Verve, and in the style he'd explore even more deeply for Prestige on some albums recorded right after this set. Hawk is playing in a quintet with Buck Clayton on trumpet, Hank Jones on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Mickey Sheen on drums – and titles include "My One & Only Love", "Bird Of Prey Blues", "Get Set", "Ooh Wee Miss GP", and "You've Changed". Added to that set are 3 bonus tracks from the Verve album Coleman Hawkins & Confreres – featuring a group with Roy Eldridge, on the titles "Hanid", "Honey Flower", and "Nabob". And last up are 2 more live recordings from a show in New York at the Phytian Temple – MC'd by All Jazzbo Collins, and featuring a solo performance of "Foolin Around", plus a take on "The Man I Love", played by a group with Hank Jones.

✨✧ Mississippi John Hurt1928 Sessions ... CD
Yazoo, 1928. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least from the perspective of older-style jazz. Titles include "Candy Man Blues", "Spike Driver Blues", "Big Leg Blues", "Ain't No Tellin", "Frankie", "Nobody's Dirty Business", and "Louis Collins". CD

✨✧ Incredible String BandHangman's Beautiful Daughter ... CD
Elektra (France), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Incredible String Band are paired down to the core duo of Mike Heron & Robin Williamson for their third and possibly best album – the truly incredible Hangman's Beautiful Daughter – using the studio as a most impressive adjunct member of the group at this point! This is an extremely talented pair – each playing myriad instruments – sitar, organ, guitar, hammer dulcimer, harpsichord, gimbri, whistle, pipe, oud, mandolin, mouth harps and more. Previous vocal collaborator Licorice sings on one song, and Dolly Collins and David Snell contribute flute organ, piano and harp – but the main duos incredible way of layering their magic with multitracking in the studio the real masterstroke of the effort. Titles include "Koeoaddi There", "Witch's Hat", "The Water Song", "Swift As The Wind", "Nightfall", "Waltz Of The New Moon", "Three Is A Green Crown" and more. CD

✨✧ William ParkerScrapbook ... CD
Thirsty Ear, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The jazz bassist re-teams with legendary violinist Billy Bang, who worked with Parker back in the 70s, and also worked with Sun Ra, Bootsy Collins and other titans of the era. Bang's violin is at the heart of the compositions, with Parker's elastic bass pluck there to keep everything bouncing within the same down home kinda groove. Avant dummer Hamid Drake rounds out the trio. The vibe runs from a very moody cool feel, to some fairly out passages – but it's all still mostly within the defined groove. The six tracks all run north of the five minute mark, leaving plenty of room for the trio to stretch their wings, and do so without wearing out their welcome. Our favorite album yet in Thirsty Ear's Blue Series – and the most definitively jazz set in the series, too! Includes "Scrapbook", "Sunday Morning Church", "Dust On A White Shirt", "Urban", and more.

This one's got some more obscure stuff (including 2 previously unreleased tracks), and material by Bobby Byrd, Vicki Anderson, Maceo, Marva Whitney, Hank Ballard, and more! The groove's tight and hard, and tracks include "Do Your Thing" by Lyn Collins, "Cross The Track" by Maceo & The Macks, "I Know You Got Soul" by Bobby Byrd, "From The Love Side" by Hank Ballard & The Midnight Lighters, "What Do I Have To Do To Prove My Love To You" by Marva Whitney, the massive "Message From the Soul Sisters" by Vicki Anderson (an incredible track with a great sample) and more!

✨✧ ByrdsBallad Of Easy Rider (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great one from The Byrds – who deliver an iconic mix of breezy country rock and folk harmonies, over songs that range from laidback to soaring! The Byrds seemed to always be in a state of flux, line-up wise, and that actually seems to bring out a pretty great mix of styles on their best albums. We'd put this one in that category, with titles that includes "Ballad Of Easy Rider", the country funk-flavored "Fido", the effectively tradtional "Jack Tarr The Sailor", "Oil In My Lamp", "Tulsa County", "Jesus Is Just Alright", "It's All Over Now, "Baby Blue", "There Must Be Someone (I Can Turn To)", "Gunga Din", "Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos)" and "Armstrong, Aldrin And Collins".

✨✧ Peter Zummo & Tom HamiltonSlybersonic Trombone ... CD
Penumbra, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tom Hamilton plays electronics, Peter Zummo plays trombones and hoses – and the pair create a haunting mixture of sounds that recalls some of the more whimsical FMP sides from the 80s, or that makes you think what might have happened if Nicolas Collins had left the trombone part more intact on that nutty instrument he created to slide together sound sources. The pair work together in a surprisingly strong manner – with trombone slidings matching electronic washings in a very nice way. Titles include "Cafe Criminal", "Neural Sturgeon", "Loudspeaker Than Words", and "Rachel Tension" (ouch – that one hurts!) CD
