✨✧ Tommy CollinsLeonard (5CD set) ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 5CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tommy Collins is one of the great 50s country artists to have had a profound influence on the Bakersfield sound perfected by Buck Owens and his followers – and this 5 CD box set, compiling the entirety of Collins' Capital Records material from the time is the first appearance of this incredible body of work on CD! Tommy was a handsome, rhinestone-studded star in his moment – but his wonderful songs just don't get their critical due. Bear Family worked hard to change that with this astoundingly complete set, which includes a huge book with everything you need to know about Tommy and the recordings, plus tons of of great photos, so why not do yourself a favor and see what all the fuss is about! Over 120 tracks, including "Campus Boogie", "Fool's Gold", "Wait A Little Longer", "If I Could Just Go Back", "Smooth Sailin'", "A Love Is Born", "Every Step Of The Way", "I Got Mine", "A Million Miles", "Hearts Don't Break", "I Wonder If You Feel The Way I Do", "Put Me In Irons, Lock Me Up", "Break My Mind", and tons more!

✨✧ Nat Pierce, Dick Collins, Ralph Burns, & OthersNat Pierce, Dick Collins, Ralph Burns & The Herdsmen Play Paris/Nat Pierce-Dick Collins Nonet ... CD
Fantasy, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great assortment of tracks from these Woody Herman offshoots – one date recorded in Paris, the other back home in California! First up is The Herdsmen Play Paris – a set done overseas by a group that includes Ralph Burns on piano, Dick Collins on trumpet, Cy Touff on bass trumpet, Jerry Coker and Bill Perkins on tenor, Dick Hafer on alto, and rhythm from French players who include Henri Renaud on piano, Jimmy Gourley on guitar, and Jean Louis Viale on drums! There's an open, flowing quality to the work that's great – a bit more of a relaxed vibe than the Woody Herman sound, with lots of nice Parisian postwar touches in the way the tunes are put together. Titles include "The Gypsy", "Wet Back On The Left Bank", "Embarkation", "Just 40 Bars", "Pot Luck", and "Palm Cafe". The second half of the CD features material from the Nat Pierce/Dick Collins Nonet album on Fantasy – recorded earlier in 1954 at the Marine's Memorial Auditorium in San Francisco. The group's a nonet, with Pierce on piano, Collins on trumpet, Jerry Coker on tenor, Jack Nimitz on baritone, John Howell on trumpet, and Cy Touff on bass trumpet – that great low-toned instrument that really adds a nice bottom to this date. Titles include "I'll Never Be The Same", "Drop The Other Shoe", "Some of These Days", "Easy Living", "Blue Lester", and "The King". CD

✨✧ Bootsy CollinsBootsy? Player Of The Year ... CD
Warner, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
What can we say? Bootsy's on top of the world here – not only The Player Of The Year, but also the most soulful artist in the P-Funk stable, and a master of the smooth sly slinky groove that would forever be taken up by bands from LA – both in the immediate soul years, and in later sampling hip hop ones. The record's got a sophisticated soul approach that moves the music way past slapped basslines and funny glasses – and thanks to top-line musicianship, including some help from Fred Wesley, Bootsy avoids any cliches that might have buried this one under the mountain of P-Funk albums hitting the market at the same time. Includes the monster track "Hollywood Squares" – plus "May The Force Be With You", "Very Yes", "Bootsy?", and "Bootzilla". CD

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

VariousBokoor Beats – Vintage Afrobeat ... CD
Otrabanda, 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. Used ... $9.99
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.

✨✧ Paul DesmondPaul Desmond Quintet/Quartet (Desmond/Paul Desmond Quartet Featuring Don Elliott) ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Herbie's still in electro-grooving mode here – not groundbreaking as earlier records, but still handled by Bill Laswell, and with a tackhead groove pretty firmly in place. The tracks are a bit more complicated than before, with vocals by Sugarfoot, and bass by Bootsy Collins. Titles include "Vibe Alive", "Perfect Machine", "Chemical Residue", "Beat Wise", and "Maiden Voyage/P Bop". CD

✨✧ Bernie WorrellAll The Woo In The World ... CD
Arista/Get On Down, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album ever issued with the name of Bernie Worrell on the cover – and a great set that really sums up all the amazing keyboard work he'd been bringing to the P-Funk universe of George Clinton! The set's got a vibe that takes off nicely from the Funkadelic/Parliament sound of the late 70s – definitely more keyboard heavy, in a great way – and really opening up with some of the special madness that was Bernie's own, and often hidden behind the light of the bigger stars in Clinton's galaxy. Worrell sings lead, and also plays a mountain of keyboards – and the set also features help from a huge number of P-Funk friends – including Eddie Hazel, GaryShider, Bootsy Collins, Parlet, Brides of Funkenstein, and even Fred Wesley & The Horny Horns. George Clinton co-produced with Bernie – and titles include "Much Thrust", "Woo Together", "Insurance Man For The Funk", and "Hold On". CD

✨✧ Leo WrightSuddenly The Blues ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ VariousAce Records Blues Story – 36 Classic Ace Blues Tracks ... CD
Ace/Fuel, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the legendary Ace Records – not just the blues promised in the title, but a fair bit of soul as well! The work here runs from the raw blues of the label's home state of Mississippi – to some even deeper soul from the nearby New Orleans scene – which Ace tapped often for some of its best recordings in the early 60s! There's a raw, gritty power to all the cuts here – and the package does a great job of bringing together some overlooked gems from Ace, and a handful of classics too – all supported by notes that seem to dig even deeper than usual for the Fuel label. Titles include "My Love Is Here To Stay" by Sammy Myers, "Mercy's Blues" by Mercy Baby, "Mother Told Me Not To Go" by Earl King, "Don't Take Your Love Away From Me" by Bobby Marchan, "Shed So Many Tears" by Elton Anderson, "Goodbye Blues" by Jesse Allen, "Looped" by Joe Dyson, "Shuckin Stuff" by Al Collins, "Hey Little Girl "by Frankie Lee Sims, "Baby Say You Will" by Jesse Allen, "Mean Mistreater" by Frankie Fair, "My Baby Boogies All The Time" by Big Boy Crudup, and "Bad Feeling Blues" by Lightnin Slim.

✨✧ Frank FosterManhattan Fever (Blue Note) (with previously unreleased album) ... CD
Blue Note, 1968/1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... CD
Warner, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Woody Herman Octet & BandBlues & Swing Groove ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".
