DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... LP
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... $21.99
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which are really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". LP, Vinyl record album

FlockTruth – The Columbia Recordings 1969/1970 (Flock/Dinosaur Swamps/bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A pair of albums by The Flock – with bonus tracks too! First up is the group's self-titled debut – far-reaching sounds from The Flock – a group who were maybe one of the best American acts at the end of the 60s to blend trippy rock with the big new wave of jazz fusion! These guys definitely use horns in a way that link them to the chunky groove of early work by Chicago or Blood Sweat & Tears – but they're also clearly going for a more long-haired vibe, too – especially when they open up on some acoustic stringed instrumentation – such as 12-string guitar or violin, both of which are handled by Jerry Goodman in a really great way! These instruments really shape some of the sound of the set – especially the violin when it's used in these freewheeling passages that might give Jean-Luc Ponty a run for his money – but there's also a core, tight soulful sound that balances things out nicely – as does some of the heavy drums and fuzzy guitar! Titles include "Clown", "I Am The Tall Tree", "Store Bought Store Thought", and "Truth" – plus a very cool funky cover of The Kinks' "Tired Of Waiting". Dinosaur Swamps has a slightly different sound than previously from The Flock – a set that brings in some sweet Hammond organ to the group's mix of jazzy horns and freewheeling guitar and violin – all in a way that even makes the whole thing better than before! The organ is never too jamming, but used at times to give the music a subtle majesty – and at other times to maybe percolate a bit more soul – while the previous instrumentation on guitar, violin, trumpet, and saxes is only even better than before – really setting these guys apart with one of the most unique visions in American jazz rock – especially when they maybe hit a few other musical roots too. Titles include "Green Slice", "Big Bird", "Hornschmeyer's Island", "Crabfoot", "Mermaid", and "Uranian Sircus". 2CD set features lots of bonus tracks – including "Afrika", "Just Do It", "Clown (part 1 & 2)", "What Would You Do If The Sun Died", "Lollipops & Rainbows", "Chanja", and "Atlantians Truckin Home".

Hank GarlandMove – The Guitar Artistry Of Hank Garland – The Complete Columbia Records Sessions 1959 to 1960 ... CD
Columbia/Euphoria, 1959/1960. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
A wonderful set of work by a jazz guitarist you've probably never heard of! Hank Garland was a player who recorded mostly in the Nashville studio scene, but who also had a warmly chromatic approach to jazz, one that was light years ahead of many of his contemporaries on the instrument. Hank's style mixed the complexity of electric guitar on a country session, with the subtle jazzy phrasing of a small group player – in a way that's hard to compare to anyone else! This set features the 2 albums Hank cut for Columbia records – Jazz Winds From A New Direction and Velvet Guitar – plus rare unreleased tracks from the same session, for a total of 31 tracks in all. Tracks include "Ed's Place", "Scarlet Ribbons", "Secret Love", "Autumn Leaves", "Greensleeves", Three Four The Blues", "Move", "Riot Chorus", "Relaxing", "Call D Law", "Rainy Afternoon", "Ed's Place", "It's Love, Of Course", and "Ain't Nothing Wrong With That, Baby".

Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 8 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Stan Getz on Columbia Records – a period that's filled with wonderful moments and lots of surprises – all of which are on this great little set! Folks normally think "Verve" when they think of Stan Getz – but his Columbia years have some wonderful elements too – as Getz was really stretching out, and doing some amazing things with his tenor – taking on Coltrane inspirations, moving into some freer fusion modes, and even going back to some of those great Brazilian and modal styles he explored at Verve in the 60s! This package is filled with great records – a number of which haven't been on CD in the US – and also some rare bonus material too! Titles include the electric Chick Corea grooves of Captain Marvel, the bossa-revival of The Best Of Two Worlds, the soaring sounds of The Master, the Jimmy Rowles piano of The Peacocks, the soulful Another World, the gentle Children Of The World, the rare dutch soundtrack Forest Eyes, and a Bonus Disc of rare live material from 1977 at Montreux, the 1979 Havana Jam, and a Carnegie Hall Woody Herman tribute!

✨✧ Dexter GordonComplete Columbia Albums Collection (Homecoming/Sophisticated Giant/Manhattan Symphonie/Gotham City/Live At Carnegie/bonus) (7CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 7 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A massive amount of music – and a hell of a tribute to the tenor sax genius of Dexter Gordon! The pairing of Dex and Columbia Records is a really special one – because it not only represents a great musical growth in Gordon's later years, but also a place that was wonderfully sympathetic to his musical ideas – and which let him take off, and perform in settings he might not have ever reached on other labels! Most of Gordon's music from later years is in a very standard format – long-blown tracks with a rhythm section – usually recorded live, in familiar formats that still sound great, but never show off the full range of Dexter's talents. Yet here, Gordon gets to work in a focused studio setting – often with some of the best peers of his generation – and is also represented on a well-recorded live date back in the US as well. The scope of the music is tremendous – and bringing it together in this one package is especially great, given that there's a lot of bonus material too! Albums include Homecoming, Sophisticated Giant, Manhattan Symphonie, Gotham City, Live At Carnegie Hall, and a disc of Bonus Tracks too! CD

Some of the tracks are a little bit goofy, but even when they're goofin' around, the group still manages to lay out the kind of sparkling harmonies that would make Brian Wilson and his beach brothers weep!

Jon LucienBelieve In Me – The Essential Selection – Original RCA & Columbia Recordings 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Decision, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 7.99
A wonderful compilation of some of Virgin Islands-raised soul jazz great John Lucien's better material – culled from his ever-fresh records for RCA and Columbia throughout the 70s – really incredible stuff that works it's magic every time we hear it, yet has never been particularly easy to find in print over the years, especially in the US! Lucien's island upbringing is a distinctively great part of is charm, with a breezily melodic vibe, often with some lovely string accents – always with a spirtual soul resonance carried by his charismatic voice. This 17 track snapshot of his RCA and Columbia ouvre is very nicely selected – and the titles include ncludes "Dindi", "Find Yourself A Love", "Who Will Buy", "Lady Love", "Luella", "Esperanza", "Listen Love", "World Of Joy", "Creole Lady", "You Are My Love", "Maiden Voyage"., "Rashida", "Who Will Buy?", "Motherland", "Would You Believe me", "Hello Like Before" and "War Song".

ManhattansI Kinda Miss You – The Anthology – Columbia Records 1973 to 1987 ... CD
Columbia/ (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Beautiful harmony soul from The Manhattans! This excellent 2CD set pulls together a bunch of the greatest songs they recorded for Columbia in the 70s & 80s, with all of their classic singles – hits, comparably overlooked gems, and B-sides alike – plus key album tracks from a nearly 15 year run. Already group soul veterans by the time they began recording for Columbia, The Manhattans are one of those rare groups who managed to get better and better over the years, really hitting their peak in the 70s and riding high for years to come, well into the 1980s! Disc 1 features a perfectly chosen selection of material from the prime years of the 70s, including "There's No Me Without You", "You'd Better Believe It", "Wish That You Were Mine", "Summertime In The City", "Hurt", "Gypsy Man", "Love Talk", "Am I Losing You", "Here Comes The Hurt Again" and many more. Disc 2 focuses on material from their surprisingly wonderful 80s years – carrying classic soul ballad tradition pretty deep into the new decade – a really remarkable achievement given the rapidly changing sounds and styles of that decade! Titles include "Shining Star", "Girl Of My Dream", "Just One Moment Away", "Crazy", "Forever By Your Side", "Where Did We Go Wrong?" with Regina Belle, "All I Need", "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" and more. 35 tracks on 2CDs!

Gwen McCraeLay It On Me – The Columbia Years ... CD
Columbia/Reel Music/P&C, Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Amazing rare soul from Gwen McCrae – little-known material recorded for Columbia records in the years before her later 70s fame at TK! The style here is nice and rootsy – very southern soul in its approach, even more so than Gwen's earliest work at TK – thanks, perhaps, to less of a club or pop crossover need in the production. Yet there's also a key link with the TK years, too – production by Steve Alaimo, who's really finding his way here in a great way – borrowing bits from other southern soul modes, moving them down to Miami, and helping forge a whole new chapter in southern soul for the 70s. Gwen's vocals are incredible – arguably even deeper and more hard-hitting than on some of her bigger hits – and the freshness of the material further makes the set great. Plus, since Columbia never issued a full album of this work in the US (although there was one rare record of the singles in Europe in the 70s), this package makes the first-ever full length Columbia album from Gwen – put together with stunning sound, very detailed notes, and some great vintage images. Titles include "Leave The Driving To Us", "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "Lay It On Me", "Lead Me On", "Lovin In The Lay A Way", "I'm Losing The Feeling", and "Been So Long". CD

Columbia, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 10 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Incredible music from Charles Mingus – a set that's pulled from a few different periods, yet features some of his greatest recordings ever! The package begins with a stunning 2CD version of Tijuana Moods – a true Mingus masterpiece, filled with amazing rhythms and mindblowing solos – presented here with loads of bonus tracks and alternates, too! Then, you hit Mingus' key Columbia years at the end of the 50s – the landmark albums Mingus Ah Uhm and Mingus Dynasty – supported here by an extra CD's worth of important alternate takes – which show the strong development of the music! Next is Mingus in the early 70s – some of his best recordings from this later stretch – the sublime Let My Children Hear Music, easily some of his most creative longform work at the time – and the brilliant 2CD Charles Mingus & Friends In Concert – which reminds us just how strongly Charles can spur on a soloist. The set's completed by the posthumous release of material titled Epitaph – another 2CD set – and the package features detailed notes, recollections from Sue Mingus, and rare photos too! CD

Kenny RankinColumbia US Singles 1963 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $42.99
A stunning early chapter in the career of singer/songwrtiter Kenny Rankin – an artist who'd later break big with a unique mix of jazz and folk, but who already sounds pretty amazing on these early singles recorded for Columbia Records! We'll be honest, we didn't even know about this part of Kenny's career until this set – we first fell in love with his early albums on Mercury in the late 60s – but the set here is completely revelatory, and shows a whole new side of the Rankin genius that should have been huge! Kenny sings a fair bit of original material on the set – and the songs are already very unique – with echoes of jazz, maybe a bit of bossa, some more mainstream phrasing, and definite currents of folk when Rankin plays acoustic guitar. Most tracks were produced by Robert Mersey, some with a slight uptown soul current – and two were produced by Dion, in his hipper, folksier mode – but it's clear right from the start that Kenny's a star that can shine more than brightly enough on its own. Titles include early versions of "In The Name Of Love" and "Haven't We Met" – plus "Don't Go To Strangers", "Come On & Be My Love", "US Mail", "There'll Be No Other Love For Me", "Baby Goodbye", and "Soft Guitar". LP, Vinyl record album

Max Roach & Cecil TaylorHistoric Concerts – McMillin Theatre, Columbia University 1979 ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1984. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99
Historic Concerts indeed – as the meeting of Max and Cecil Taylor must have been quite an event! As he did on other late 70s sessions – particularly those with Archie Shepp and Anthony Braxton – Max proves that he's quite willing to experiment, and works beautifully in the spare, improvised duet setting of the album. The material runs the full course of the 2LP set – and Cecil's a bit restrained, but in a good way – one that really shows his deep respect for Max, and which offers a great opportunity to hear his talents in a fresh setting!

A really unique session of vocal jazz – and one of the few ever directed by Henry Mancini! Lola was best known for her work on TV in the show Peter Gunn, but despite her cheesecake looks, she's actually a pretty nice singer – with a dusky, late nite sort of sound that's perfect for the Mancini backings on the set. The album features a fair number of original Mancini tunes – all in the moody mellow mode as the more famous "Dreamsville" title track – and Lola burns in a nice smokey tone, on tracks that include "Sorta Blue", "It's Always You", "Soft Sounds", "Slow & Easy", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Two Sleepy People", and "Brief & Breezy".

Columbia, 1985. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Roy Ayers in a tight mid 80s funk mode – commanding a modern vibe really well, especially with his vibes so prominent in the sound! Although the sound's a step or two more modern than the Polydor years, Roy still sounds great – and he grooves nicely on this batch of tracks that mix his older jazz funk style with an 80s groove sound that has slight touches of electro. This mix of modes is really unique for the time, with Roy embracing the new school without completely letting go of his trailblazing personal approach. Jean Carn sings lead vocals on the cut "Can I See You", and the album also includes the nice stepper "Programmed For Love", plus "Virgo", "Night Flyte", and "For You", a smooth mellow cut that's got great vocals by Roy!

Lost funk rock from Ballin'Jack – the rare self-titled set for Columbia that's arguably best remembered for being so massively sampled – but the group that deserves a more widely-credited legacy! The sound is a bit like Mandrill on the best cuts, with the band going hard on the funky drums with some great brassy movements, flute and guitars. Lots of deftly jazzy movements, too – standout flute and guitar moments throughout. Tracks include the famously sampled "Found a Child" and "Never Let 'Em Say" (believe us, you've heard these samples plenty, and it's cool to hear them in their original context. . .great stuff and little wonder they were so strongly utilized by hip hop production heavies), plus "Super Highway", Festival", "Telephone", "Ballin' The Jack", "Street People", "Carnival", and "Hold On".
