Earl GrantBeyond The Reef ... LP
Decca, 1962. Very Good ... $4.99
Overlooked genius from keyboardist Earl Grant – a player who could straddle so many styles at once, and who had a sly but subtle influence on jazz, soul, and instrumental pop in the 60s! This album's got all the echoes of Grant's style at its best – slight touches of exotica, a mix of piano and organ on the solos, and modes that are sometimes mellow, sometimes late nite jazzy, and occasionally punctuated with a stepping sort of groove that often got Grant play in sources far from the mainstream. Piano is recorded with a nice echo, while the organ is often more subdued – and titles include the original groover "Swingin Gently", plus "Make Someone Happy", "The Second Time Around", "Angel Eyes", "Beyond The Reef", "Mood Indigo", and "Tender Is The Night".

✨✧ World's Experience OrchestraAs Time Flows On ... LP
Now Again, 1977. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost legacy in spiritual jazz – the second album from this obscure Boston group! The album's still every bit as spiritual as the combo's debut, but with some shorter tracks that bring the group's ideas into even deeper focus! The group is smaller, but still uses voice along with their instrumentation – which comes from the work of Earl Grant Lawrence on flute, Jamyll Jones on bass, Shaddu Jones on piano, and Larry Roland, Roy Hall, and Chauncy Hutcherson on percussion. Some vocals are more solo, and even hit a bit of a hip protest vibe – and titles include "Nine Degrees & Cold", "Black Woman", "To Do Nothing", "The Mind", and "Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Grant GreenFirst Session ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $18.99
Grant Green's first-ever session as a leader – recorded by Blue Note in 1960, and not issued until decades later! The set features Green's guitar playing in a piano quartet, with rhythm by Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – about as fine a backing trio as Green could hope to find. We're not sure why Blue Note didn't issue this material at the time – perhaps because they were trying to break Green as R&B-inflected soul jazz player, and this set had more of a straight jazz quality (like his Sunday Morning album) – but whatever the case, it's all here now, along with 2 other tracks from a 1961 session with Sonny Clark on piano. Titles include "Seepin", "Sonnymoon For Two", "Just Friends", "Woody N You", and an early recording of "Grant's First Stand". CD

✨✧ Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean overall! There's a fair bit of great players in the lineup – including Jon Faddis on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Joe Farrell on tenor – and the horns soar out nicely to set the scene over some tightly stepping backings – all served up with plenty of room for Grant to solo spaciously on guitar! The title track – "The Main Attraction" – is nearly 20 minutes long – and the other two tracks, "Creature" and "Future Feature", both approach the 10 minute mark themselves! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grant GreenComplete Blue Note Recordings Of Grant Green With Sonny Clark (4CD set) (DISCS ONLY) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, Early 60s. Used 4 CDS ... Out Of Stock
Although Grant Green has been getting a lot of attention lately for his heavy-duty funk work of the late 60s, it's the subtly beautiful work of the early 60's that first caught our attention years ago. From the start of his young career, Green was an amazing player who had developed a unique single-note approach to soloing that was positively riveting. And while his appearances on other Blue Note albums were filled with a heavy soul jazz sound that had Green playing next to organ and tenor, material like this gives you a perfect chance to hear how well he could swing a group on his own, with little other accompaniment than a tight rhythm section, and some soulful piano from Sonny Clark. None of this material was issued at the time. Includes material that appeared on the later albums Gooden's Corner, Oleo, Born To Be Blue, and Nigeria – plus tracks from The World Of Jazz Guitar, and Blue & Sentimental by Ike Quebec. CD
(CONDITION NOTE: Does not include the outer box, large booklet with notes, or any rear tray cards – just the discs plus two small inserts with track lists. Packaged in jewel cases. Discs only!)

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... CD
Warner, 1986. Used ... $6.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

✨✧ Dave BaileyReaching Out (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Jazztime/Tokuma (Japan), 1961. Used ... $34.99
An incredible album from drummer Dave Bailey – a set that's almost better than his classic early 60s sets for Epic! Like those records, this one's a rock-solid session that's right up there with the best Blue Note work of the time – perfectly put together, with a sense of poise, balance, and soul that's even more amazing, given that the album was only issued on the short-lived Jazztime label. The lineup is killer too – with Frank Haynes on tenor, Grant Green on guitar, Ben Tucker on bass, and Billy Gardner on piano – and the presence of Green, Gardner, and Tucker really give the set a tight soul jazz groove. Green is great, and the album's equally noteworthy for his presence – and has actually been issued under his name over the years as well. Tracks include "One For Elena", "Reaching Out", "Our Miss Brooks", and "Baby, You Should Know It". Great stuff, and an album that will become one of your favorites! CD features 3 bonus alternate takes too. CD

Johnny CashSings The Songs That Made Him Famous ... CD
Sun/Varese, Late 50s. Used (reissue)... $4.99
Iconic early Cash at Sun Records – and while there is truth in the title, as it does indeed include a few of his trademak tunes, it'd be even more accurate to say it's the SOUND that made him famous – that perfect mix of his authoritative voice, unvarnished boom-chicka-boom backdrop from bassist Marshall Grant and guitarist Luther Perkins, and the production of Jack Clement and Sam Phillips. It's as classic as it gets! Includes "Ballad Of A Teenage Queen", "I Walk The Line", "Big River", "I Can't Help It", "You're The Nearest Thing To Heaven", "Don't Make Me Go", "Guess Things Happen That Way", "Next In Line" and more – 16 in all.

Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Used ... $3.99
The birth of modern jazz guitar – seminal sides recorded by Charlie Christian, working in small group format with Benny Goodman in the '40's. Christian's tone on the instrument is fantastic – and even though the style of the tracks is more in the swing era mode, there's a direct line between his playing and later work by Grant Green and other 60s jazz guitar giants. 16 tracks in all, including "Six Appeal", "Waiting For Benny", "Seven Come Eleven", "Airmail Special", "Breakfast Feud", and "Wholly Cats".

DJ Shadow & Cut ChemistRenegades Of Rhythm – DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Play Afrika Bambaataa (tour book) ... Book
Boo Hooray, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 39.98
A sweet little tour book commemorating DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Renegades Of Rhythm tour – and one that features a wealth of rare images from the early days of hip hop – of old gig flyers, records, drawings, acetates, and more! The most incredible fact about the tour itself, is that Shadow and Chemist don't just spin records that Bambaataa himself spun back in the day, but they're literally spinning Bambaataa's own record collection – having been granted access by the man himself. As part of that, the book is a document of the record collection, and other items in Bam's archives – very much a document of old school hip hop – with text by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, and Afrika Bambaataa. The book is 78 pages – done in kind of a DIY style that makes it all the more appealing – with a beautiful hand silk-screened cover with by Paul Insect, and featuring full color scans of many of the actual records. The overall aesthetic is somewhere in the Wax Poetics mode, although maybe a bit less slick – and some of the drawings remind us of work by Mingering Mike. Book

Herbie Hancock5 Original Albums (Takin Off/My Point Of View/Inventions & Dimensions/Speak Like A Child/The Prisoner) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $19.99
The early genius of Herbie Hancock – perfectly summed up here in five classic albums for Blue Note – each presented in a tiny LP-styled sleeve! Takin Off has Herbie Hancock stepping into the limelight with an excellent batch of soul jazz tunes, including the first recording of his classic "Watermelon Man", the one track that probably put all his kids through school! Although that one went on to become a standard within a few short years in 60s jazz, it still sounds great here in the original – a very fresh take on the sound of soul jazz in the 60s – offered up here in a 7 minute version that has more sharp soloing than most other takes on the tune! The group here is great too – with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the tracks are all also originals by a young Herbie – including "Watermelon Man", "The Maze", "Driftin", "Three Bags Full", "Alone & I", and "Empty Pockets". My Point Of View is a great mix of soul jazz and modernism! The record include a nice groovy "hit", Herbie's "Blind Man, Blind Man" – an obvious follow-up to "Watermelon Man", but still a standout track with a lot of imagination, and a fierce soul jazz hook that just won't quit! The rest of the record, while still groovy, also shows much more signs of Herbie's far-reaching conception – especially shared with players like Tony Williams, Grachan Moncur, Chuck Israels, and Grant Green – all of whom work with Herbie, Donald Byrd, and Hank Mobley – in a larger than usual group that makes for a really great sound! Titles include "A Tribute To Someone", "King Cobra", and "The Pleasure Is Mine". Inventions & Dimensions is really unique little record from Herbie Hancock – one that's almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare – and quite different than Herbie's other Blue Note work – and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 Latin percussionists, Willie Bobo and Osvaldo "Chihuahau" Martinez. Herbie only wrote simple sketches for the songs on the album, and most of the work on the tracks was done live, spontaneously, in the studio – creating a very free groove that never goes too far out, but which is far more adventurous than usual. All tracks are long, and titles include "Succotash", "Triangle", and "Mimosa". Speak Like A Child is an oft-overlooked session that has Herbie mixing a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Herbie's smaller group sessions – and the record features a sextet that includes Ron Carter, Mickey Roker, Jerry Dodgion, Thad Jones, and Peter Phillips – all soaring with the warmth and introspection that was showing up in some of the best Blue Notes from the time. The harder-hitting soul jazz riffs and hooks are nicely replaced by more thoughtful lines that get a bit deeper, soufully – and nearly all tracks on the set are originals by Hancock! The album's filled with great moments – and tracks include "The Sorcerer", "Riot", and "Goodbye To Childhood". Last up is The Prisoner – a nice late Blue Note change from Herbie Hancock – a very different album than his previous sets for the label – in that it features a slightly larger group, and a sound that really points the way towards his directions in the 70s! There's a slightly ambitious feel to some of these cuts – not in a way that's over-arranged, but just a new sort of thinking for Herbie's kind of groove – a mode that's partially informed by the seriousness of 60s jazz soundtracks, but which also has the beginnings of some more righteous modes of expression too. Players are all great – and include Joe Henderson on tenor and flute, Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, Hubert Laws on flute, Jerome Richardson on bass clarinet, Buster Williams on bass, and Tootie Heath on drums. Herbie plays both acoustic and electric piano – using the latter here in one of his first recordings on the instrument – and titles include "Firewater", "I Have A Dream", "The Prisoner", and "He Who Lives In Fear".

The third in Led Zeppelin's spectacular run of early albums – each one either matching or topping its predecessor, depending on one's personal favorite – and a record with an influence that's as massive as the sound! The record's got a pair of of Zep's best-remembered songs in "Immigrant Song" and their take on the traditional "Gallows Pole", but the whole thing is great – and a great balance of their earlier bombast with a lot more acoustic moments. Other tracks include "Friends", "Celebration Day", "Tangerine" and "Hats Off (To Roy Harper)". LP, Vinyl record album

John PattonAlong Came John (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. Used ... $14.99
A really unusual album from the mighty Hammond giant John Patton – as the set features two tenor players in the group, both of them great! The tenor's no stranger to the sublime keyboard work of Patton – but here, the great one gets help from both Fred Jackson and Harold Vick – both of whom are at their early 60s soul jazz best, able to play with a hard edge, but also some surprisingly complicated moments too – which really fits into the spirit of Patton's overall groove! The group also features great guitar from Grant Green – one of his key pairings with the organist – plus drums from the wonderful Ben Dixon, who's got a fluid, open approach to rhythm that really works well with John's basslines from the Hammond. Titles include "Gee Gee", "Pig Foots", "Spiffy Diffy", "Along Came John", and the classic modal groover "The Silver Meter". CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $18.99
A great lost session by Stan The Man – recorded in the early 60s when he was doing some of his best work, but not issued by Blue Note until the mid 80s! The album stands right up there with other Blue Note gems of the time – especially albums like Comin Your Way and Jubilee Shout, both of which also had to wait many years to be discovered – and Turrentine's got all the bold, raspy tones we love in his youthful horn – a sense of phrasing and energy that's quite different than his later years. The group on the record helps keep the vibe a lot – with some excellent guitar from Grant Green, always a great one on a date like this – plus Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The interplay between Green and Turrentine is wonderful – even before they start soloing – and titles include "ZT's Blues", "Be My Love", "The Lamp Is Low", and "The Way You Look Tonight". CD

Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The Latin side of Blue Note Records – and the Brazilian one, too – served up here in a series that brought together classic work from the label in a special sort of groove – tunes that are maybe more influenced by south of the border rhythms than you'd expect from the soul jazz and hardbop artists who originally made the records! There's a bit of bossa here, but the rhythms open up into a fair bit more, too – and it's great to hear the difference in these musicians as they change things up from straighter bop modes, and use the new grooves to open up their solos and rework their phrasing too! This side of Blue Note was sometimes buried in a world of collectors looking for more familiar hardbop, but it really lives again, thanks tot he Blue Bossa collection. 3CD set features 41 tracks in all – including "Afreaka" by Lee Morgan, "Avila & Tequila" by Hank Mobley, "Chitlins Con Carne" by Kenny Burrell, "Congalegre" by Horace Parlan, "Back Down To The Tropics" by Charlie Rouse, "Latona" by Big John Patton, "Girl From Ipanema" by Lou Rawls, "La Fiesta" by Stanley Turrentine, "Headin South" by Horace Parlan, "La Malanga" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Mama Inez" by Grant Green, "Swingin The Samba" by Horace Silver, "Upa Neguinho" by Duke Pearson, "Mambo Inn" by Grant Green, "Ghana" by Donald Byrd, "Love For Sale" by Dexter Gordon, "Samba De Orfeu" by Charlie Rouse, "Afrodisia" by Kenny Dorham, "Sambop" by Cannonball Adderley with Bossa Rio, "Loi" by Ike Quebec, "Sandalia Dela" by Duke Pearson, "Congo Lament" by Ike Quebec, "Corcovado" by Grant Green, "Tin Tin Deo" by James Moody, "El Gaucho" by Wayne Shorter, and "Stormy" by Duke Pearson.

VariousBlue Break Beats – Vols 1 to 3 – The Jazz Break Beats That Made Hip Hop Hits (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $23.99
A special package that brings together the first three volumes in this landmark series – one that had the Blue Note label digging back in their catalog and completely re-thinking their approach to reissues – given the new popularity of jazz in the hip hop sample world! As you'd guess from the title, the music here is very strongly oriented in the mode of "breaks", or tracks that were sampled for later hip hop and club recordings – classic jazz tunes from the glory days of Blue Note that have gone onto live again, thanks to the keen ears and inventive work of more contemporary DJs and producers. After all these years, The Blue Breakbeats series still stands as one of the best illustrations of the funkier side of the label – and titles include "Blue Juice" by Jimmy McGriff, "Groovin For Mr G" by Richard Groove Holmes, "Street Lady" by Donald Byrd, "Jasper Country Man" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Higga Boom" by Gene Harris, "Walk Tall" by Cannonball Adderley, "Howlin For Judy" by Jeremy Steig, "Sho Nuff Mellow" by Rueben Wilson, "Ode To Billie Joe" by Lou Donaldson, "Don't Call Me N*gger Whitey" by Gene Harris, "Mystic Brew" by Ronnie Foster, "Ground Hog" by Duke Pearson, "Ummh" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Ain't It Funky Now" by Grant Green, "Your Love Is Just Too Much" by Gene Harris, "Kudu" by Eddie Henderson, "The Weasil" by Donald Byrd, "It's Your Thing" by Lou Donaldson, "The Worm" by Jimmy McGriff, "Orange Peel" by Reuben Wilson, "The Kumquat Kids" by Eddie Henderson, "Good Humor Man" by Blue Mitchell, "Viva Tirado" by Gerald Wilson, "Turtle Walk" by Lou Donaldson, "Final Comedown" by Grant Green, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Joe Williams, "You've Made Me So Very Happy" by Lou Rawls, and "Oliloqui Valley" by Herbie Hancock.

Trojan (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
The term "copasetic" was first coined by Bill Bojangles Robinson in the 30s – but the word is a perfect one to describe the vibe here – an easygoing groove, served up in dozens of killer cuts from the early ska and rocksteady years of Trojan Records! Given the image of a British mod on the front, you can bet that these are the kind of tracks that played big on the London scene in the second half of the 60s – tunes that were not only serving the big wave of Jamaican immigrants on the English shores, but also having a huge impact on the nation's youth of the time too. But even without any sort of history behind the music, there's still plenty to love here – a huge amount of cuts that includes some Trojan classics and lots of other deeper tracks too – titles that include "Yeah Yeah" by The Riots, "Wrong Emboyo" by The Rulers, "University Goes Ska" by Don Drummond, "Storm Warning" by Lynn Taitt & The Boys, "Wise Man" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Nuclear Weapon" by Roland Alphonso, "Keep The Pressure On" by Winston & George, "Bonanaza Ska" by Carlos Malcolm & His Afro-Jamaican Rhythms, "Contact" by Roy Richards, "The Jerk" by Derrick Harriott, "Inez" by Lester Sterling & Tommy McCook, "Big Bamboo" by Lord Creator, and "The Higher The Monkey Climbs" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes.

✨✧ Charlie ChristianGenius Of The Electric Guitar (4CD set) (amp box edition) ... CD
Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Used 4 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing work from guitarist Charlie Christian – an artist who only recorded for a few short years before an untimely early death – but a player whose work went onto have a huge impact on both the guitar and jazz music in general for years to come! Charlie's playing has a sharp edge that's undeniable – an approach to the guitar that's definitely jazz, yet also finds a place for bluesy inflections too – in styles that no doubt influenced later players like Grant Green or Tal Farlow – and which may have also been an inspiration to electrified bluesmen in the 50s, too. This package brings together a huge amount of Christian's crucial sides for the Columbia label – material that features his raw electric instrument in the company of the Benny Goodman sextet, where Charlie could really shine – and a bit in Benny's larger group too. The package also features raw material that has Christian playing with Count Basie & Lester Young, and the Metronome All Stars – plus detailed notes too. 98 tracks in all! CD
