DJ ShadowEndtroducing ... CD
Mo Wax, 1996. Used ... $4.99
It seems like when this came out, critics, and even DJs liked to drop the term "Trip Hop" whenever possible, and this album was held up as the watershed mark. A few years down the line and it still holds up, but as an instrumental hip hop LP, as much as a rock album (Shadow's gone on to show his true colors with subsequent efforts) or anything else. Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod, though some of us were hip to him all along, but Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveller in the coloristic approach he uses, that never forgets the funk. Includes "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World". CD
(Initials in pen on booklet cover.)

Island, 1996. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Massive 20th Anniversary edition of DJ Shadow's masterpiece! It seems like when this came out, critics and even DJs liked to drop the then new moniker "trip hop" whenever possible, and this pivotal album is held up as the watershed mark.

Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod (though some of us were hip to him all along) and Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveler in the coloristic approach he uses – and never forgets the funk!

✨✧ Lloyd GlennPiano Stylings ... LP
Score, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $9.99
An excellent album of hard-rolling piano – part R&B, part blues, and part jazz, some of the incredible work of pianist Lloyd Glenn, a heavy handed groover from the 50s. The tracks are all short, with a rolling piano groove that's part Texas, part New Orleans. Titles include "Glenn's Guide", "Shadow Land", "Chocolate Drop", "Chica Boo", "Tiddley Winks", "Nite Flite", and "Still Water". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Score pressing with the deep groove. Cover has a split spine & top seam.)

Toots ThielemansCollage ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest 70s albums from the great Toots Thielemans – and one of the few that really captures the same sort of soulful magic that Toots hit when working with Quincy Jones! The album's a Dutch production, done with some fantastic arrangements from Rogier Van Otterloo – who creates this gentle groove on some tracks, and lush backdrops on others – shifting Toots through those brilliant modes of color and tone he can do unlike anyone else – as he solos on jazz harmonica, whistles, plays guitar, or even combines some of both! There's great keyboards in the mix on most tracks, too – resonating really nicely with the harmonica – and titles include "Killer Joe", "That Misty Red Beast", "Jane's Theme", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Quiet Evenings", "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "The Sensualist", and a remake of "Bluesette".

✨✧ Earl KlughNightsongs ... LP
Capitol, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Earl Klugh's guitar gets plenty of rich colors to work with here – some deeper backdrops from arrangers Don Sebesky and Dave Matthews – each of whom bring a different mood to the set! Sebesky's got those lush, full charts that we love so much from his classic orchestral charts of the 60s and 70s – while Matthews is a bit tighter and more swinging, but still farther from his funky work of the 70s than you might expect. Klugh's guitar hits loads of those classic colorful tones throughout – and titles include "Theme From The Pawnbroker", "The Look Of Love", "Nature Boy", "A Certain Smile", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Stay Gold".

✨✧ Jack McDuffTobacco Road ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A monster record by Brother Jack McDuff, and one of his best-ever – in our humble opinion! At first glance, the album appears to be just a bunch of jazz covers of standards and pop tracks – like "Tobacco Road", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "This Bitter Earth", and "Teardrops From My Eyes" – but Jack's got some help from JJ Jackson on the arrangements, and the outwardly simple tracks are twisted into these amazing grooves that have Jack wailing away in strange choppy funky ways on the organ! The whole album must be heard to be believed, and the version of "Shadow Of Your Smile", which starts with a nice break, is worth the price of the album alone! Plus, the whole thing's packaged in a very groovy cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Green & blue label pressing.)

✨✧ Chet BakerPeace ... LP
Enja (Germany), 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty nice later Chet Baker album – thanks to vibes by David Friedman, who really seems to be the driving force of the set! The album was cut during the same time that Friedman himself was a leader on Enja – and it's got a very similar feel to much of Dave's work – with vibes that ring out slowly but effectively, creating a spacious backdrop for Baker's fragile, somewhat bruised solos to emerge. Bass is by Buster Williams, drums are by Joe Chambers, and 4 of the album's 6 tracks are Friedman originals – including "For Now", "Shadows", "Syzygies", and "Lament For Thelonious".

✨✧ Wallace RoneyPrototype ... CD
High Note, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nicely electrified set from trumpeter Wallace Roney – working here in a style that has plenty of moody backdrops on Fender Rhodes, plus some really snapping percussion from drummer Eric Allen! There's a sound here that's clearly inspired by 70s Miles, but which also moves through a range of more recent expression, and which often reminds us of work from French trumpeter Erik Truffaz on his first few Blue Note albums. Some of the tracks are more acoustic and straightforward, in the manner of Roney's earlier albums – and players include Adam Holzman on Fender Rhodes, Geri Allen on acoustic keys, Antoine Roney on tenor and soprano saxes, and Matt Garrison on bass. Guest performers include Don Byron on bass clarinet, Clifton Anderson on trombone, and DJ Logic on turntables – and titles include "Cyberspace", "Shadow Dance", "Prototype", "Then & Now", "Secret Identity", and "Three Views Of The Blues".
