✨✧ Miles DavisMiles Davis In Person Friday & Saturday Nights At The Blackhawk – Complete (4CD set) ... CD
Columbia, 1961. Used 4 CDs ... $38.99
Originally a 2LP set, but now a 4CD package – with 14 previously unissued tracks! Legendary early live work from Miles Davis – one of the first examples on record of the way that Davis could really stretch out in a concert setting! The music's a bit more straight ahead than later live dates, but still pretty open and exploratory – and in addition to Davis' sparkling work on trumpet, the album also features some killer tenor lines from Hank Mobley – working here as a key part of Miles' group, and blowing with a hell of a lot of soul. Rhythm is by the rock-solid trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and titles include "Neo", "So What", "Fran Dance", and "Well You Needn't". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisQuiet Nights ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good- ... $11.99
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
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

Bob JamesTouchdown ... LP
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
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

VariousTwelve Inch 70s – Boogie Wonderland (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ Miles DavisCellar Door Sessions 1970 (6CD box set) ... CD
Columbia, 1970. Used 6CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A long-awaited addition to the Miles Davis electric catalog – and a package that features over 4 hours of newly-discovered music! The 6CD set documents 4 nights of performance by Miles at the Cellar Door in Washington DC – recorded in December of 1970, and featuring a mindblowing group that includes Gary Bartz on soprano and alto sax, Keith Jarrett on Fender Rhodes and organ, Airto on percussion, Michael Henderson on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and a bit of guitar from John McLaughlin on the last 2 CDs. There's a really hard and heavy feel here that's steeped in rock and soul influences – and the package is even more amazing, considering how little work has been offered from this unique point in Davis' career. Presentation of the material is in the same high standards as other Miles Davis boxes on Sony – with a 96 page book with notes and reflections by each band member, and a whopping 6 CDs of music, featuring mostly really long takes on the tunes! Titles include "Directions", "What'd I Say", "Honky Tonk", "Sanctuary", "Improvisation #3", "Inamorata", "It's About That Time", and "Yesternow". CD

✨✧ Janne SchafferKatharsis/Earmeal/Presens ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... 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. Good ... $3.99
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
