Pat MartinoThink Tank ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used ... $6.99
Angular and modern work from guitarist Pat Martino – working here in a field of dark tones and colors that recalls some of his best moments of the 70s! The album's got Pat playing with a quintet that includes Joe Lovano, Gonzalo Rubacalba, Christian McBride, and Lewis Nash – and the tracks effortlessly bend around complicated rhythms while still managing a nice degree of swing. Titles include "Africa", "Dozen Down", "Think Tank", "The Phineas Trane", "Earthlings", "Before You Ask", and "Quatessence". CD

Claus Ogerman & Michael BreckerCityscape ... CD
Warner, 1982. Used ... $4.99
A great showcase for the talents of a young Michael Brecker – rich orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, topped by Brecker's sharp-edged, and well-stated lines on tenor! The album predates Brecker's first record as a leader by a number of years, and it shows a serious side to his playing that's quite different than some of his 70s jazz funk with his brother – a deeper, more modern sound that comes off surprisingly well – in full Ogerman orchestrations that are quite moody, and filled with dark colors. Side one features three shorter tunes – "Cityscape", "Habanera" and "Nightwings" – and side two features the three-part suite "In The Presence & Absence Of Each Other". CD

✨✧ Charles MingusMingus Ah Um ... CD
Columbia, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Charles Mingus' true classics – and an essential album in any jazz collection! This 1959 gem was recorded by Mingus at a key point in his career – when he was rising from the jazz underground into the ranks of America's elite jazzmen, penning some of the most challenging work of his career, and working with incredible younger players that interpreted his work with a great deal of fire! The tracks are a bit more tightly arranged than work on some of Mingus' previous work for labels like Atlantic and Bethlehem, but that also gives them a razor-sharp emotional edge that's carried off perfectly by players who include John Handy and Shafi Hadi on alto saxes, Booker Ervin on tenor, Willie Dennis and Jimmy Knepper on trombones, Horace Parlan on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The album is filled with key Mingus classics – like "Better Git It In Your Soul", "Boogie Stop Shuffle", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", and "Fables of Faubus" – plus "Self Portrait In Three Colors", "Open Letter To Duke", and "Bird Call".

Leroy HutsonHutson ... LP
Curtom/Acid Jazz (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About May 31, 2018 (delayed)
An amazing record – quite possibly the best ever by Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson! The whole thing's a smooth soul masterpiece beyond compare – a stunning blend of great songwriting, sexy vocals, and buttery production that rank it up there with the best work of 70s giants like Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, or Roy Ayers. Leroy's got a voice that's both warm and mellow, yet incredibly honest at the same time – and the songs on the record show a range of colors and emotions that perfectly fit his unique style. Features mellow "Cool Out", the funky "Lucky Fellow", the sweet "All Because Of You", and the sublime cuts "It's Different" and "Can't Stay Away". The whole thing's great – and is one of the crowning achievements of the Chicago soul scene! LP, Vinyl record album

WhatnautsBest Of The Whatnauts ... LP
Playback, Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $22.99 24.98
Incredible work from The Whatnauts – easily one of our favorite soul vocal groups ever! The trio work in the same sweet soul modes as more famous early 70s contemporaries on the east coast scene – like The Delfonics or Stylstics – but they've also got a special approach that's quite unique – sometimes more heartbreaking than just about any other group we can think of, but also sometimes a bit more tough, too – almost as if they're able to get in touch with all their emotional spectrum with effortless ease, and serve it up in a way that's completely unfettered from any too-commercial modes! They can blow us away on late nite ballads, then turn around and hit us over the head with deep harmonies on funky cuts too – all produced with a nice raw edge during their important years on the Stang/All-Platinum New Jersey soul label. This set brings together most of their best tracks from that time – including "Just Can't Lose Your Love", "I'll Erase Away Your Pain", "Blues Fly Away", "Try Me", "I Dig Your Act", "Soulwalking", "Let Me Be That Special One", "Why Can't People Be Colors Too", "Message From A Black Man", "Give Him Up", "Just Can't Leave My Baby", "I'm So Glad I Found You", "She's Gone To Another", "Tweedly Dum Dum", and "You Gave Me True Loving". 2LP set features some great bonus material – their early 80s singles "Help Is On The Way" and "Still I'll Rise" – plus "Girls (J-Ski ext edit)".

✨✧ Dave BrubeckAngel Eyes ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis! Dennis had a way with a tune that often put dark corners in the back of lovely melodies – and this subtle sense of emotion is a perfect foil for the understated talents of Paul Desmond's alto work on the set. Brubeck himself is nice too – less trick-oriented than usual, in a way that lets us focus on the colors of his tone – and drummer Joe Morello and bassist Eugene Wright are in top form, as usual. Titles include "Violets For Your Furs", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Little Man With The Candy Cigar", "Will You Still Be Mine", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Clifford Jordan & Sonny RedStory Tale ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant collaboration between Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red! At the time of this recording, Jordan was one of a number of firey young tenor players from Chicago – all of them hard-blowing, with a nice soulful bottom that opened up a bop sound to more moods and emotions – but Jordan stood apart from most of them with an approach that was decidedly more complex and forward-thinking. As you'll hear on the album's tracks, he wasn't content enough to just blow off a riff – but had to twist things up a bit, working a tune for more shades and colors than it might yield with another player, pushing on the proceedings with an edge that works especially well for Red, who opens up here more than he does on some of his other sides from the time. Red's tone is excellent – a sharper one next to Jordan's more supple blowing – and the pair are a perfect team to lead off tunes like "Prints", "Hip Pockets", "A Story Tale", and "Defiance".

✨✧ Terry CallierI Just Can't Help Myself ... LP
Cadet, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums that Terry Callier ever recorded – and a masterpiece of the baroque soul crossover style that was going down at the Chess/Cadet label at the time! Terry's own folksy singing and playing would be more than enough to make this record great – but it's given an amazing edge by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney, who create these floating pillows of sound and washes of jazzy colors that fit Terry's moods perfectly, and really expand the emotional intensity of the songs. At the time of this release, the Chess empire was falling apart – but the forces that be put a great last push into the record, and Terry's backed by superb work from Chicago studio giants like Phil Upchurch, Don Myrick, Art Hoyle, Bobby Christian, Cleveland Eaton, Louis Satterfield, and Evans and Stepney themselves! Every track is a wonder, and titles include "Alley-Wind Song" , "Can't Catch the Trane", "Bowlin' Green", and "Until Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has light ringwear and a bit of aging. Record is nice!)
