James BrownBlack Caesar ... CD
Polygram, 1973. Used ... $5.99
Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental cuts, plus Lyn Collins, who sings a sock version of "Mama Feelgood" that's worth the price of the record alone! Includes the classic "Down & Out in New York City", plus "Blind Man Can See It", "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Dirty Harri", and "Chase". CD

Dizzy GillespieSomething Old/Something New ... CD
Verve/Philips, 1963. Used ... $9.99
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

Sly & The RevolutionariesBlack Ash Dub ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1980. Used ... $18.99
Let's see, Sly and Robbbie and their cohorts in the Revolutionaries, who include Santa Davis, Ansell Collins, Flabba Holt, Sticky & Skully, Bo Pee, Bingy Bunny, Gladdy Anderson , Bobby Ellis and Deadly Headly, team up with Jah Nkrumah Thomas and deliver a dub album of tight and right rhythms mixed at Tubby's by Jammy and the Scientist. And all titled in tribute to intoxicating substances, mostly ism, like "Marijuana", 'Herb", "Collie", "Lambsbread", "Rizla", "Acapulco Gold", "Black Ash", "White Rum", "Cocaine" and "LSD". What more could you ask for? CD

Sonny StittWhen Sonny Blows Blue ... CD
Jamal/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. Used ... $16.99
A sweetly funky little set from Sonny Stitt – one of his hippest albums ever, and a rare date cut for Ahmad Jamal's short-lived record label! The sound here is a great combination of the late 60s tone that Sonny forged on other east coast indies – and some of the hipper, more open rhythms he'd later hit on the Jazz Masters label in Detroit on his work with Eddie Russ – a sound that's quite unique, and which is a fair bit different than the funk-based Stitt dates for Prestige around the same time. Players here are quite unusual too – Herbie Hancock on piano, organ, and Fender Rhodes – plus Ted Sommer on vibes, and guitar by either Gene Bertoncini, Howard Collins, or John Pizzarelli – depending on the track. Rhythm is by Ron Carter on bass and Grady Tate on drums – and the arrangements by Dave Ward have a nicely fresh approach to soul jazz – one that really keeps things interesting throughout! Titles include "Sunny", "My Idea", "Jason's Blues", "Out Of This World", "Opus 1", "When Sonny Blows Blue", and "Mac Arthur Park". CD

Larry WilliamsThat Larry Williams – The Resurrection Of Funk ... CD
Fantasy/Dusty Groove, 1978. Used ... $7.99
A rare funk album from west coast legend Larry Williams – very different than his heavy R&B of the late 50s, or the brief soul comeback he had with Johnny Guitar Watson in the 60s – and instead a heavy groover with a trippy Cali sound! The record's got a sharp groove right from the start – a vibe that's a bit similar to some of the best Johnny Watson funk of the period – a slight jazzy undercurrent in the instrumentation, with wicked guitar and keyboard bits dancing around each other in the rhythms – often mixed with vocals that have a cool sort of electric feel, and topped with some great horn work from Fred Wesley on trombone and Maceo Parker on alto sax! Rudy Copeland plays keyboards on the album alongside Williams, the the set's got a bit of the feel of Rudy's lost Funky Blindman set – and in a way, also echoes the best strutting, sexy modes of Bootsy Collins too. The album's a surprising gem all the way through – a real lost chapter in Larry's career, and the kind of set that might have broken bigger, had he not died mysteriously a few years later. Titles include "Funky Force", "The Resurrection Of Funk", "One Thing Or The Other", "ATS Express", "How Can I Believe", and "Can't Dance To The Music (If It Ain't Got Funky Rhythm)". CD

VariousDon Letts Presents The Mighty Trojan Sound ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
Don Letts has always been a mover and shaker on the London scene, building connections between the punk movement and helping a lot of Jamaican artists get signed to British labels, so it's only fitting that he should be tapped as selector for a collection of tracks from the deep, deep Trojan vaults. Like his Social Classics comp, this awesome 2 disc set is a tremendous selection of vocal, dee jay, instrumental and dub cuts, some well known, but many more obscure and still great nuggets. 44 tracks, all killer, no filler! Includes John Holt "It's A Jam In The Streets", Big Youth "Foreman Vs Frazier", Hopeton Lewis "Boom Shacka Laka", Shorty "President Mash Up The Resident", Glen Washington "Rockers No Crackers", Junior Byles "Fever", Lloyd Robinson "Cuss Cuss", Gregory Isaacs "Mr Know It All", The Hippy Boys "Doctor No Go", Karl Bryan "Soul Scorcher", Harry J All Stars "The Liquidator", The Chosen Few "Theme From Shaft", The Aggrovators "Channel One Is A Joker", Boris Gardiner "Elizabethan Reggae", King Tubby "I Trim The Barber", Dave & Ansell Collins "Double Barrel", Scientist "Scientist (Stalag 17)", Linval Thompson "Jamaican Callie (version)" and Prince Jammy & The Aggrovators "Out Of Order".

VariousMaxfield Avenue Breakdown – Channel One Dubs & Instrumentals 1974 to 79 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. Used ... $8.99
Pressure Sounds does it again! This collection documents instrumentals and dubs cut at Channel One, run by the Hookim brothers, which was one of the centerpieces of the Jamaican music industry throughout the 70s. Countless classic sides were cut there, with the blueprint for the influential Rockers rhythm laid out by the most important rhythm section in reggae at the time, and probably one of the most significant in the history of recorded music: Sly & Robbie. The cover of this compilation is actually a remake of the "Vital Dub" LP by the Revolutionaries, Sly & Robbie's band of the time, who lay down the tracks here, with keys by Osse Hibbert & Ansel Collins and horns by the great Tommy McCook & Vin Gordon. 16 smokin Rockers grooves, including "Ragnampaiza Version", "Woman Is Like A Shadow Version", "CB 200 Version", "Ballistic Affair Version", "School Days Version" and "Fire Bun Version".

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Charlie ShaversHorn O Plenty (Horn O Plenty/The Complete Charlie Shavers With Maxine Sullivan/We Dig Cole) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1954/1957/1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
3 very unusual slices of work by trumpeter Charlie Shavers – proof of his vitality and the range of his powers during the 50s! The first 4 tracks on the set are from the Horn Of Plenty 10" LP recorded for Bethlehem – a pretty weird little record for trumpeter Charlie, done as a "story of the jazz trumpet", and featuring narration by Al Jazzbo Collins! Collins talks his way through the set – providing some hipster speak that sets that stage for a variety of older tunes featuring Shavers on solo. The set list includes "Young Man With A Horn", "Salt Peanuts", "Desert Dawn", and "Moten Swing" – all done in pretty cool, swinging versions. The next 5 tracks on the set feature recordings from 1957 – 2 of which feature vocalist Maxine Sullivan, and all of which include Buster Bailey on clarinet, Russell Procope on alto, and Billy Kyle on piano – on tunes that include "Windy", "Rose Room", "If I Had A Ribbon Row", and "Molly Malone". The last 8 tracks on the set are from a swinging late 50s album called We Dig Cole – a batch of Cole Porter tunes performed by Shavers with a group that includes Urbie Green on trombone, Sol Yaged on clarinet, Buddy Weed on piano, Cozy Cole on drums, and Sam Taylor on tenor. Larry Clinton arranged, and the whole thing's got a highly swinging approach – and tunes include "Night & Day", "It's Delovely", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Just One Of Those Things", and "My Heart Belongs To Daddy".

✨✧ VariousJames Brown's Funky People Part 3 ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing – and the best yet in this legendary series! Like the other volumes, this is a collection of funky work produced by James Brown for other artists, most of it lifted from his legendary People Records imprint. However, unlike the others, or at least unlike the first volume, this volume's got some amazing stuff that almost never shows up on other reissues – and it's even got some incredible unreleased material! The whole thing's a super-heavy super-funky dip into some of the rarest James Brown-related material you can find – if you can find it at all in any other format. Titles include "Pick Up The Pieces One By One" by AABB, "There Was A Time" by Dee Felice Trio, "Doin The Do" by Bobby Byrd & The JBs, "Who Knows" by Beau Dollar, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (original rock version)" by James Brown, "Mr Hot Pants" by The Believers, "Give It Up Or Turnit Loose" by Lyn Collins (a 45-only track), "How You Gonna Get Respect?" by Hank Ballard, "Hang Out & Hustle" by Sweet Charles (a 45-only track), and "Blow Your Head (undubbed version)" by The JBs! Great stuff – and at this price, you'll be funky and rich! CD

✨✧ Ashford & SimpsonSend It (Warner pressing) ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Ashford & Simpson – with some modern soul groovers that are among the best they ever did! The album includes their original reading of "Top Of The Stairs", a great sexy soul duet that was later done by Collins & Collins – and it's also got a fantastic instrumental reading of "Bourgie Bourgie", a track that you may know from a more famous John Davis disco version. Other tracks include "By Way Of Love's Express", "Let Love Use Me", "Send It", and "Waited Too Long". More proof that leaving Motown was a great move for them! CD

✨✧ Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Jazz Heritage, 1956. Used 2CD ... 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
