✨✧ World's Experience OrchestraAs Time Flows On ... LP
Now Again, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... 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 GreenComplete Blue Note Recordings Of Grant Green With Sonny Clark (4CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, Early 60s. Used 4CDs ... $129.99
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

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 GreenLatin Bit ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good ... $29.99
Hard to find album, and a nice session by Grant Green that's very different than any of his other Blue Note LPs. Here, he's playing with a trio of Latin percussionists, for a sound that's fairly bossa, despite the "Latin" in the title. The tracks are long-ish, and Green's single-note solos sing out nicely in the lightly lilting grooves laid down by the hopping rhythm section. Titles include "Tico Tico", "Mama Inez", "Besame Mucho", and "Mambo Inn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Jimmy ForrestBlack Forrest – Previously Unissued Recordings With Grant Green & Elvin Jones ... CD
Delmark, Early 60s/1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great material from the sessions for Jimmy Forrest's album All The Gin Is Gone – recorded by Delmark back in their early days, and done with an underground groove that Jimmy didn't always get on record! The core group on the album features players Jimmy was working with under the leadership of Harry Edison – drummer Elvin Jones, pianist Harold Mabern, and bassist Gene Ramey – and a very young Grant Green sits in on guitar on a few of the album's best numbers. Titles include alternates of tracks from All The Gin, plus other numbers new to the set – and tracks include "Dog It", "Black Forrest", "Sunkefoal", "These Foolish Things", "You Go To My Head", "All The Gin Is Gone", and "What's New". CD also features a previously unissued take of "These Foolish Things". CD

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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".

Johnny CashSings The Songs That Made Him Famous ... CD
Sun/Varese, Late 50s. Used (reissue)... $8.99
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.

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

John PattonAlong Came John ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+ ... $149.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

John PattonSoul Connection ... LP
Nilva (France), 1983. Very Good ... $19.99
An obscure session by John Patton, and a great one too! The set was recorded sometime between the end of Patton's successful run at Blue Note, and before he was rediscovered, and brought back out into the light by John Zorn and other younger players who appreciated his skill. The style of the album's great – in a mode that really recalls the farther-reaching organ work of Pattons' later Blue Note years, not exactly as modern as players like Larry Young, but clearly inspired by a freedom that was coming into use of the organ at the time. The group's an all-star one, too – with Grachan Moncur making a rare organ jazz appearance, Melvin Sparks on guitar, Grant Reed on tenor, and drummer Alvin Queen (who's label the set was recorded for), laying down some dexterous rhythms that remind us a bit of Hugh Walker's work on some of Patton's best Blue Notes. Includes a great reading of Dusko Goykovich's "Soul Connection", plus versions of Moncur's "Space Station" and "The Coaster". And oddly, this one turns up less than most of Pattons' albums from the 60s! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy SmithI'm Movin' On ... CD
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $8.99
A great little trio session – one of Jimmy's hippest, featuring Grant Green on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums. The talents of Green are quite welcome here – as his lighter touch on the strings makes Jimmy open up a bit more than with some of his other compatriots in this format – creating a groove that's less bluesy, with slight modal touches. The set includes a nice long original called "Back Talk", plus the cuts "T'Ain't No Use", "I'm Movin On", and "Hotel Happiness". Cool cover, too, with Jimmy posed in front of the wheel of a Jaguar!

Blue Note, 1961. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
An excellent early live set that has Stanley playing with a raw tone that you'd hardly recognize if you only know his later, sweeter records. The group's a lively soul jazz quintet, with Grant Green on guitar, playing the kind of hard single note solos that made his early recordings so great, and Horace Parlan on piano, slammin' the keys with a very tight groove and very nimble fingers. Includes a long moody reading of "Yesterdays", plus the hard bop original "Stanley's Time" – as well as the tracks "Later at Minton's", "Come Rain or Come Shine", "Love for Sale" and "Summertime". 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

VariousBlue Bossa – Vols 1 to 3 – Cool Cuts From The Tropics (3CD set) ... 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.

✨✧ VariousCopasetic – The Mod Ska Sound – 56 Ska & Rock Steady Classics From The Original Mod Era ... CD
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.

VariousDeep Jazz Trip ... CD
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really letting its artists do their thing – and you'll heard that clearly on some of the best cuts here – numbers that offer up surprisingly vibrant sides of the artists included, usually with some righteous undertones. Titles include Eddie Jefferson's rendering of "Freedom Jazz Dance" (and a very crazy one at that), Charles Earland's excellent stormer "Murilley", Kenny Barron's "Swamp Demon", Walter Bishop Jr's "Soul Village", Joao Donato's "Night Tripper", "Old Man Moses" by Grant Green, and three nice ones by Carlos Garnett – "Good Shepherd", "Banks Of The Nile", and "Taurus Woman", from the classic Black Love LP.

✨✧ Charlie ChristianGenius Of The Electric Guitar (4CD set) ... 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
