✨✧ VariousSweet Soul Music 1969 – 28 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Color Him Father" by The Winstons, "Snatching It Back" by Clarence Carter, "Choice Of Colors" by The Impressions, "Reconsider Me" by Johnny Adams, "Backfield In Motion" by Mel & Tim, "Baby I'm For Real" by The Originals, "In A Moment" by The Intrigues, "Nobody But You Babe" by Clarence Reid, "Cissy Strut" by The Meters, "The Chokin Kind" by Joe Simon, "TCB or TYA" by Bobby Patterson, and "There'll Come A Time" by Betty Everett.

Muhal Richard Abrams with Cecil McBeeRoots Of Blue ... LP
RPR, 1986. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A wonderful album of spare duets that recalls some of our favorite work by Muhal from the 70s! Abrams solos with a wide range of emotions and colors, working around soulful basslines from Cecil McBee that bring out the warmer side of his playing. All tracks are long, and titles include "Roots Of Blue", "Direflex", "Metamor", and "Time Into Space Into Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Fuller with James MoodyNight Flight ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
A newly majestic setting for James Moody in the 60s – thanks to the mighty arranging talents of Gil Fuller! The album's similar to one that Fuller did with Dizzy Gillespie at the same time – a blend of large ensemble backings and soulful work by the solo star – which in this case is James Moody on alto, tenor, and flute! Moody's work here is kind of an extension of his 60s recordings with Tom McIntosh – an amazing array of colors, tones, and emotions that would never have been heard in his music a decade or two before – played with sophistication that's simply stunning, and a sense of swing and soul that makes the whole thing move nicely. The ensemble has a great rhythm section that features Mike Wofford on piano, Chuck Berghofer on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – plus percussion from Francisco Aquabella – and titles include "Latin Lady", "Tin Tin Deo", "Our Man Flint", "A Patch Of Blue", "Night Flight", and "17 Mile Drive".

✨✧ Clifford Jordan & Sonny RedStory Tale ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint- ... $29.99
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".

Howard McGheeDusty Blue ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the best of the early 60s comeback albums by the legendary bop trumpeter Howard McGhee – and a record that really has the player finding a whole new groove in his music! At this point, Maggie's got a fantastic tone that was missing from his earlier records, filled with pain and raw emotion – but also measured with a maturity that gives his solos an incredible sense of economy that delivers a whole hell of a lot with just a few simple notes – a balance that comes through beautifully here, maybe even more so than on any other record by Howard from the time! He's playing here in a great group that includes Roland Alexander on tenor, Bennie Green on trombone, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Pepper Adams on baritone – and tracks include "Dusty Blue", "Groovin High", "Cottage For Sale", "Flyin Colors", and "With Malice Towards None".

✨✧ Charles MingusMingus Ah Um ... CD
Columbia, 1959. Used ... $2.99
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".

James MoodyHey It's James Moody ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good ... $4.99
A magnificent little album – one of James Moody's first collaborations with arranger Tom McIntosh – one of the most sensitive jazz voices of his time. McIntosh works in a world of many tones and colors – and he really pushes Moody past straighter solo approaches, into a mode where he's shaping sound into complex emotion – hitting a level of soulfulness that might never been expected in earlier years! Moody plays both tenor and flute on the session, and rhythm is by a piano-less trio that features John Gray on guitar, Eldee Young on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums. And if that's not enough, Eddie Jefferson joins in on vocals on 2 tracks – lending his own lyrics to Moody's great original "Last Train From Overbrook", and doing a great reading of "Summertime". Other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Indian Summer", "Please Say Yes", and "Blue Jubilee". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Berndt Egerbladh TrioBoy Full Of Thoughts ... CD
Sawano (Japan), 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
A soaring bit of piano work from Berndt Egerbladh – an artist we mostly know from his funky keyboards and arrangements on the 1970 album by Swedish singer Doris – but who steps out here in a wonderfully intimate set of trio tracks! A good amount of the tunes here are originals by Berndt, played with a freely-flowing style that's got plenty of feeling, but no hoke or over-done emotions. Accompaniment is simple, and sensitive – bass by Bjorn Alke and drums by Sten Oberg – and the record's a tremendous example of the European trio sound at its best – unfettered, but never too free – just set loose to explore a range of tones, colors, and changes in a magnificent post-Bill Evans mode. Titles include "Boy Full Of Thought", "Night Hawk", "A Song For Amy", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Ewa", "Sarek", and "The Blue Road". CD features a few alternate takes, too! CD

✨✧ Steve TurreDelicious & Delightful ... CD
High Note, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
Steve Turre's one of those players we always look out – especially as a leader, because albums like this are always some of our favorites! And although years back, we might have thought of Turre as a player with a gimmick, we've really come to appreciate his subtle sense of soul – and the increasing sense of spiritualism in his music over the years! This album's a great indication of that quality – as tenorist Billy Harper figures strongly in the sound of the record – working in a group that features Turre on trombone and shells, Larry Willis on piano, Corcoran Holt on bass, Dion Parson on drums, and Pedro Martinez on percussion. Russell Malone plays guitar on two tracks – and the tunes have a nicely building nature – stepping out with rich colors that are augmented nicely by Harper – in a set of almost all original material. Titles include "Light Within", "Duke Rays", "Speak To Me Of Love Speak To Me Of Truth", "Dance Of The Gazelles", "Delicious & Delightful", and "Sunala Nobala". CD

✨✧ Francis HimeFrancis Hime ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the few full albums ever recorded by Francis Hime – a brilliant Brazilian composer/arranger whose work was instrumental to 70s MPB! Hime's talents place him somewhere between the baroque brilliance of Marcos Valle and the ambitiously soaring early work of Milton Nascimento – a complicated territory shaded with rich emotion, broad colors of sound, and a soulfulness that holds the whole thing together beautifully. The album's a lasting tribute to Hime's genius, and a real landmark in Brazilian music – with titles that include "Requiem", "Valsa Rancho", "Atras Da Porta", "A Meia Luz", "Olivia", and "Sem Mais Adeus".

✨✧ Tony BennettWho Can I Turn To ... CD
Columbia, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
A 60s classic from Tony Bennett – a record that sported a huge title hit, but which also stands strongly as a really unified album! Tony's at his maturing best here – still working with core jazz inspiration from the Ralph Sharon Trio, but also getting fuller strings from George Siravo – who colors in the tunes with a sense of adult emotion and sophisticated melancholy that shows that Bennett's way more than just a simple singer of hits. The material here is all pretty darn great – with a strong jazz influence on tunes like "Autumn Leaves", "Waltz For Debby", "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams", and "Got The Gate On The Golden Gate" – and more deeply sensitive style on "Who Can I Turn To", "Listen Little Girl", and "There's A Lull In My Life".
