Columbia NightsIn All Things ... CD
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
We waited years for the full length debut of Columbia Nights, and not only was it worth the wait, it's a stunner – a beautiful batch of timeless spacey soul! Essentially the multi-instrumentalist trio of John E Daise, Jason "Brotherspanky" Edwards and Hayling Price, they have really expansive sound – built from bass, synths, keys, percussion that lifts it to cosmic heights – in a perfect mix of atmospheric instrumentals and vocal-led tracks. The sound carries influences from soaring 70s soul jazz, to post millennium electronic soul – which mingle seamlessly, and carry a real depth of genuine soul, however spacey the composition! The guest vocalists are top notch, including Diggs Duke, Aaron "AB" Abernathy, Vaughan Octavia and others, and titles include "Sphere", "Cerulean", "In All Things", "Circle", "Now" with Diggs Duke, "The Rhythm" with Sarai Abdul-Malik, "Coming Home" with Aaron "AB" Abernathy, "Neverend/All For You" feat Siara Shawn, "Ever Between" with B Jamelle and "Glide" with Vaughan Octavia.

Miles DavisQuiet Nights ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
Moody magic from Miles Davis and Gil Evans – one of the pair's most perfectly poised albums together, and a set with a slight bossa nova undercurrent! Evans' shimmering horn patterns are in fine form here – complicated, but never in cold and too-modern ways – just the right sort of backdrop for Miles' muted solo work – blow with a great sense of space and care throughout! There's almost a soundtrack sort of depth to the record, but the solos still keep the jazz element nicely in focus – and titles include "Summer Night", "Wait Till You See Her", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", "Song #1", "Song #2", "Corcovado", and "Once Upon A Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dexter GordonDexter Gordon – Mosaic Select (Nights At The Keystone Vols 1, 2, & 3) ... CD
Mosaic, 1978/1979. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late live recordings from the mighty Dexter Gordon – 3 CDs worth of material recorded at the Keystone Korner in the late 70s, all with an inventively-blown power to match Gordon's earlier live sets from the European scene! The format here is similar – with Dexter out front, laying down incredible lines on tenor sax – and getting support from George Cables on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Eddie Gladden on drums. But in a way, the music here is even stronger than before – as Gordon's got a sharper edge, focused solo approach, and is working with an agility that really leaves us breathless. The tracks are long, but have the energy of Gordon's shorter studio tracks for Columbia at the time – and although we're not always huge fans of the "soloist in unfettered live setting" style of recording, we've gotta admit that we really love these tracks! Titles include "You've Changed", "It's You Or No One", "Antabus", "Backstairs/LTD", "The Panther", "Tangerine", "Gingerbread Boy", and "I Told You So". CD

Tony BennettI Wanna Be Around (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1963. Used ... $5.99
Warm backings from Marty Manning – and a set that really has Tony Bennett coming into his own for the 60s! Titles include the classics "I Wanna Be Around" and 'The Good Life" – plus "Once Upon A Summertime", "If You Were Mine", "Someone To Love", and "Quiet Nights". CD

Wynton MarsalisSelections From The Village Vanguard Box ... CD
Columbia, 1999. Used ... $2.99
A week's worth of work by Wynton Marsalis – tracks recorded over 7 different nights at the Village Vanguard, featuring the star trumpeter working with three different bands! Most of the lineup here is relatively similar – Wes Anderson on alto and soprano, and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone appear in all 3 groups – but tenor is handled by either Victor Goines or Todd Williams on some dates, and piano is by Eric Reed or Marcus Roberts. There's a nicely loose feel to some of the tracks – shaking past some of the stiffness or seriousness that can sometimes mar Marsalis albums – and the CD features 12 titles from the larger box set, with titles that include "Welcome", "The Cat In The Hat Is Back", "Misterioso", "Juba & O'Brown Squaw", "Local Announcements", and "I'll Remember April".

✨✧ VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
The 12" single is a format that only makes a good thing better – as it often allows for a bit more space to let a track open up, especially when in the hands of the right producer! The 31 tracks on this set are a perfect illustration of that fact – as they represent a huge wave of 12" single releases from the early years of the format – mostly tracks by bigger artists of the time, but served up here in versions that really top the album versions and the smaller 7" single takes. Almost all the selections here are mixes done for the 12" vinyl format at the time – and they work together wonderfully in a selection of grooves from labels that include Columbia, Epic, and Philadelphia International. Tracks include "Bourgie Bourgie (12" version)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Blame It On The Boogie (12" single version)" by The Jacksons, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire (12" version)" by Dan Hartman with Loleatta Holloway, "Boogie Wonderland (12" version)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "I Love Music (12" version)" by The O'Jays, "Boogie Nights (12" single)" by Heatwave, "Native New Yorker (12" disco)" by Odyssey, "Love Magic (12" version)" by John Davis & The Monster Orchestra, "Disco Nights (12" disco version)" by GQ, "Lovin Is Really My Game (12" version)" by Brainstorm, "Gotta Go Home (ext version)" by Boney M, "No One Home (12" version)" by Lalo Schifrin, "Shame (12" version)" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Let's Love Tonight (12" version)" by Gary's Gang, "Dance Little Lady Dance (12" version)" by Tina Charles, "TSOP (special 12" version)" by MFSB with Three Degrees, "That Lady (parts 1 & 2)" by The Isley Brothers, "Was That All It Was (12" version)" by Jean Carn, "How's Your Love Life Baby (special 12" version)" by Jackie Moore, "I've Got The Next Dance (12" disco)" by Deniece Williams, and "Star Love (disco version)" by Cheryl Lynn.

✨✧ Bob JamesTouchdown ... LP
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet electric keys from the great Bob James – a record that's a bit smoother than some of his first few classics for CTI, but still plenty darn nice! The set's got Bob working with a range of key fusion and studio players who include Steve Gadd, Earl Klugh, Eric Gale, Hubert Laws, Mongo Santamaria, and Idris Muhammad – all coming together into the compressed 70s Bob James approach to funky jazz – a sound that's possibly best summed up in the album's extended take on "Angela" (also known as "Theme To Taxi"), done here with a slightly funky undercurrent that's totally great. Other tracks are a bit brighter and warmer – but still wonderfully soulful – and James has a way of hitting the keys on the Fender Rhodes that makes them "plunk" with this sweet sweet tone that's unlike anybody else on the instrument! Titles include "Sun Runner", "Angela (Theme From Taxi)", "Touchdown", "I Want To Thank You", and "Caribbean Nights". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Janne SchafferKatharsis/Earmeal/Presens ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of albums from Swedish guitarist Janne Schaffer – brought together in a single set! First up is Katharsis – a record that catapulted the artist from his home in the Swedish scene to big international fame – hot on the heels of a number of key guitar solos that Schaffer added to Abba records in the 70s! The album's all instrumental, and mostly a fusion workout overall – with loads of heavyweight guitar work from Janne, at a level that really makes the instrument talk more than most of his American contemporaries – echoing some of the phrasing that you might find from players like Adrian Belew or Robert Fripp. Titles include "The Blue Gate", "Atlantia Inn 2419", "Stocking Suite", "Ramsa", "Wintergreen", and "Bromma Struttin". Earmeal is a definite meal for the ears from guitarist Janne Schaffer – a musician who first rose to fame in Sweden, then captivated a global audience with records like this! The set has Schaffer maybe fitting in a bit more with his Columbia Records fusion contemporaries than before – using that amazing voice of his on guitar to work amidst modes that are sometimes soulful, sometimes a bit more brightly rocking – with help from Bjorn Jason Lindh on keyboards and flute, and Jeff Porcaro on some nice tight drums. Titles include "Bromma Express", "Hot Days & Summer Nights", "To A Beautiful Painter", "Happy Feet", "Shrimp A La Carte", and "Oriental Sign". Presens is maybe the tightest of all the Columbia Records albums cut by guitarist Janne Schaffer – a record that has some short, focused tracks that fall into the rock-influenced fusion style of the time – one with vocals from Janne, but the rest using only his guitar as the main "voice" in the lead! All tracks feature work from the great Bjorn Jason Lindh – who we love on his own records, and who plays keyboards, piano, and flute – on titles that include "Mr Allansson Pickles", "Open Eyes", "Desire", "Neonmoisture", "Fata Morgana", and "March From Refresher Course".

Ramsey LewisFunky Serenity ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings adds in some very nice percussion with his drum work, and Cleveland Eaton's on funky bass, giving the set a strong bottom groove. Features the sublime sample cut "My Love For You", a great version of "Knights In White Satin" that's done with a weird spacey groove, plus the tracks "Kufany Mapenzi (Making Love)", "Serene Funk", "What It Is!", and "Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album
