✨✧ Eddie HendersonSunburst ... CD
Blue Note, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky fusion doesn't get any funkier than this – and the album's one of the greatest 70s recordings by jazz funk trumpeter Eddie Henderson! The album's got a harder edge than a lot of Eddie's other records of the decade – razor sharp rhythms crackling away underneath a sublime space-heavy mix of keyboards, bass, saxes, and Eddie's funky trumpet. The group includes work by Bennie Maupin on reeds, George Duke on keyboards, Julian Priester on trombone, and Harvey Mason on drums – and the great Skip Drinkwater is at the production chair, cutting the grooves here with a lot more fire than in some of his later work! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Involuntary Bliss", "Galaxy", "Kumquat Kids", and "Explodition". CD

✨✧ Bobby LyleGenie ... CD
Capitol/EMI (UK), 1977. Used ... $18.99
A funky fusion classic – and quite possibly Bobby Lyle's most perfectly realized album! The set was Bobby's first full US outing, and it's filled with soaring, riffing keyboards that stretch out into territory explored a few years before by Johnny Hammond and Lonnie Liston Smith! The real difference, though, is the album's sweet soulful production from Wayne Henderson – who hooks in the best bits of Bobby's sound, and fuses them with a modern soul-styled groove that creates the same blend of jazz and R&B that you'd get on some of Eddie Henderson's best records from the time, or some of the best Ronnie Foster work on Columbia from a few years later. Bobby's keyboards are capable of hitting both a soulful groove and a deep jazzy vibe – and the record's got a rich palette of tunes that never fail to amaze us! Titles include "Mother Nile", "You Think Of Her", "The Genie", "Pisces", "Magic Ride" and "Night Breeze". CD

Jimmy SmithSoftly As A Summer Breeze (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $2.99
Material recorded early in the Blue Note career of Jimmy Smith – but not issued until the mid 60s, and often overlooked at the time! The record's still in the spare trio mode of the early Jimmy Smith years – but is a bit lighter and more lyrical than before – a nice change from the harder tones of Jimmy's early trio records, and a hint and the expansive lines he'd take on later recordings! The lineup features mostly Kenny Burrell on guitar and Philly Joe Jones on drums – plus a few additional tracks that use Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and titles include "These Foolish Things", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "One For Philly Joe", and a nice version of Monk's "Hackensack". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Willow Weep For Me", "Ain't No Use", "Angel Eyes", and "Ain't That Love" – all with vocals by Bill Henderson! CD

VariousBest Of Newport '57 ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used 2CD ... $4.99
The full scope of Verve's massive recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – served up in a 2CD set that includes many lesser-known numbers! The set certainly features some of the bigger name acts from Newport who've filled Verve's catalog over the years – Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and others – but it also features some of the younger, hipper talents that hit the Newport stage that year – as well as some of the older trad players who were being re-exposed to a younger audience at the festival too! 2CD set features 24 tracks in all – some on CD for the first time – including "I Never Knew" by Mat Mathews, "Blue Lou" by Leon Sash, "Love Is Here To Stay" by Carmen McRae, "Blues For Louis" by Bobby Henderson, "Bourbon Street Parade" by George Lewis, "Between Me & Myself" by Toshiko Akioshi, "Love For Sale" by Gigi Gryce & Donald Byrd, "Nona's Blues" by Cecil Taylor, "There Will Never Be Another You" by Eddie Costa, "Lady Sings The Blues" by Billie Holiday, "S Wonderful" by Don Elliott, "I Got Rhythm" by Teddy Wilson, and "Boogie Woogie" by Jimmy Rushing.

VariousOn The Corner – Fantastic Fusion Grooves From The Jazz Funk Masters ... CD
Blue Note (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
The sweet sound of 70s Blue Note – a really wonderful stretch for the label, and a time when the company was stretching out in a range of sublimely soulful directions! This period's probably best known for the influence of Larry Mizell on some of the label's key players, but it's also got plenty more to offer too – Brazilian influences in the rhythms, electric undercurrents in the instrumentation, and some especially soulful vocals on some of the best-remembered tracks. Old players are born anew, new players rise to lofty heights, and the whole thing's an amazing discovery in jazz – filled with key tracks that do a better job of summing up 70s Blue Note than our few worlds ever could! 20 tracks in all – including "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Koko & Lee Roe" by Gene Harris, "Love So Far Away" by Donald Byrd, "Fun House" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Cheshire Cat" by Ronnie Foster, "Kumquat Kid" by Eddie Henderson, "People Make The World Go Round" by Bobby Hutcherson, "In Pursuit Of the 27th Man" by Horace Silver, "You're Everything" by Carmen McRae, "Route" by Moacir Santos, "Sassy Soul Strut" by Lou Donaldson, "Always There" by Ronnie Laws, "Essence Of Mystery" by Alphonse Mouzon, and "Motherland" by The Waters.

✨✧ Blackbyrds/Charles EarlandAt The Movies – Cornbread, Earl And Me/Dynamite Brothers ... CD
Prestige, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two funk blacksploitation soundtracks, back to back on one CD! Cornbread, Earl, & Me wasn't exactly a Superfly-type film, but the Blackbyrds do a nice job of playing Donald Byrd's score of funky instrumentals and sweeter jazz themes, written to fit the "coming of age" story of the film. The big sample cuts on here are the short cuts "Wilford's Gone" and "Soulful Source" – but there's a lot of other nice mellower numbers, like "Cornbread", "Riot", "One-Eye Two Step", and "The Gym Fight". Charles Earland did the funky score for Dynamite Brothers – an obscure Kung Fu movie, that was his one entry into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s. The lineup includes a lot of the great players that were helping him on his mid-70's stuff – Eddie Henderson, Dave Hubbard, Patrick Gleeson – and the groove is deeper and funkier than most of his other mid-70s Prestige albums. The album's got a very nice batch of material that really stands on its own away from the movie, with some very funky grooves that stand as some of the best shorter funk tracks cut by Earland from the time. Tracks include "Snake", "Razor J.", "Kunfusion", and "Weedhopper". CD

✨✧ Stanley CowellNew World ... CD
Galaxy (Japan), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly righteous little album from Stanley Cowell – a set cut after his more famous music for the Strata East label, but one that still hangs onto a similar vibe! The style's a bit tighter than before, but still filled with soul and spirit – thanks to a lineup that includes Julian Priester on trombone, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and Pat Patrick on reeds – making a key appearance here away from the Sun Ra Arkestra! Cowell plays both piano and keyboards, and the record has a bit of strings, and a bit of vocals – but all used tastefully, in ways that further enforce the depth of the tunes. Tracks include "El Space-O", "Ask Him", "Island Of Haitoo", and "I'm Tryin To Find A Way". CD

✨✧ Charles EarlandLeaving This Planet ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a sound that's majestic and powerful, almost with an indie soul jazz sort of vibe overall! There's an immediate urgency to most numbers that's totally undeniable – a lesson learned from the electric experiments of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis, but fused down into a core essence – then let loose on a soaring journey to the heavens. Earland plays Hammond, moog, clavinet, and Arp on the set – and other players include Joe Henderson on tenor, Dave Hubbard on alto and soprano sax, Eddie Henderson and Freddie Hubbard on trumpets, Marc Elf on guitar, Harvey Mason on drums, and the incredible Patrick Gleeson on synthesizers – bringing in a spacey edge to the record that's really amazing! Rudy Copeland sings a wonderful vocal on the title cut, "Leaving This Planet" – and all other instrumental cuts include "Red Clay", "Warp Factor 9", "Tyner", "Van Jay", "Never Ending Melody", "Mason's Galaxy", and "Asteroid".

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonLittle B's Poem – Live At EJ's ... CD
Movie Play (Portugal), 1980. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely-extended live set from Bobby Hutcherson – one that's filled with long tracks that really let him stretch out on his solos! The group's a quartet – with Bobby on vibes, William Henderson on piano, Heshima Williams on bass, and Eddie Moore on drums – rhythm players we've never heard before, but who do a decent job here of matching Hutcherson's free-flowing sound! There's a warmly chromatic sound to the set – and the recording's a nice contrast to Bobby's studio sides for Columbia in the late 70s – almost a precursor to the solid work to come on the Landmark label. Titles include "Dolphin Dance", "In Your Own Sweet Way", "Little B's Poem", "Body & Soul", "Highway One", "All Of You", and "With A Song In My Heart". CD

✨✧ Victor LewisKnow It Today, Know It Tomorrow ... CD
Red (Italy), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully soulful work from drummer Victor Lewis – and a record that introduced the world to the tremendous tenor talents of Seamus Blake! The set's got a relaxed, flowing vibe that reminds us a lot of some of Lewis' collaborations with Bobby Watson – although Blake's tenor tone gives the record a deeper twist overall – set up beautifully alongside piano from Eduardo Simon and bass from Christian McBride, and also featuring a bit of trumpet and flugelhorn from Eddie Henderson – although honestly, Blake's the real standout horn talent on this date. Lewis wrote most of the tunes himself – somewhat poetic numbers, but with a lot of soul and swing – and titles include "The Loss Of A Moment", "Know It Today Know It Tomorrow", "Between Two Worlds", "The Truce", and "If You Only Knew Me".

✨✧ VariousBeginners Guide To Jazz Funk (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Nascente (UK), 1970s. Used 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
They might well call this a Beginners Guide To Blue Note Jazz Funk – given that most of the tracks here are from the hip 70s run at Blue Note Records! The vibe is wonderful – funky and soulful, but definitely with jazz at the forefront – as older soloists were finding new ways to reach their audiences through electric grooves – and younger players were making a huge name for themselves through a very inventive approach to their work! The 3CD set is a hell of a deal for the money – with 33 tracks that include loads of Blue Note gems, plus some 70s Capitol funk and soul tracks too – titles that include "As" by Gene Harris, "Dominoes" by Donald Byrd, "The Genie" by Bobby Lyle, "Down The Way" by John Lee & Gerry Brown, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Sassy Soul Strut" by Lou Donaldson, "Think Twice" by Donald Byrd, "Tidal Wave" by Ronnie Laws, "London Town" by Light Of The World, "Windy C" by 100% Pure Poison, "Daisy Mae" by Raul De Souza, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Prance On" by Eddie Henderson, "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, "Abdullah & Abraham" by Chico Hamilton, "Cheshire Cat" by Ronnie Foster, "Funky Sneakers" by Willie Bobo, "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "People Make The World Go Round" by Bobby Hutcherson, and "Sky Islands" by Caldera.

Blue Note, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blue Note continues their strong tradition of well-packaged samplers from the old days – this time dipping into the 1970s years of the catalog, and copping a few extra tracks from the related Capitol/EMI labels. A few cuts here have been issued on other sets over the years – but at this price, the set's still a great package of 11 soulful funky tracks, with titles that include "Friends & Strangers" by Ronnie Laws, "Can't Hide Love" by Carmen McRae, "Think Twice" by Donald Byrd, "Spinning Wheel" by Lonnie Smith, "Feel Like Makin Love" by Marlena Shaw, "Acuphuncture" by Eddie Henderson, "Uno Esta" by Bobbi Humphrey, "VO" by Chico Hamilton, "Music Is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz, and "Down Here On The Ground" by Grant Green.

✨✧ VariousCosmic Lounge – Presented By King Britt – A Spiritual Quest For Higher Sound ... CD
Rapster/BBE (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous albums to ever bear the name of King Britt – a selection of spiritual jazz tracks from the 70s, all of which show a definite inspiration for Britt's recent work in the 21st Century! There's no remixes or remakes here – and the collection features all original gems from a few decades back – stretched out and cosmic grooves from some of the leading lights of the soul jazz underground in the post-Coltrane years! Most numbers are obscure tracks licensed from smaller indie labels – brought together beautifully with a sense of depth and darkness that goes way beyond the usual King Britt groove. Titles include "Space Spy" by Grachan Moncur III, "Beyond Yourself" by Brother Ahh, "Scorpio Libra" by Eddie Henderson, "Kawaida" by Herbie Hancock, "Ekim" by Michal Urbaniak, "Yebo" by Mtume, "Conviction" by Dane Belany, "Naima" by Doug & Jean Carn, "The Time Now For Change" by Phil Ranelin, "Moving Pictures 4 The Ear" by Don Cherry, and "Encounter" by Flora Purim.

✨✧ Joe HendersonOur Thing (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and Pete La Roca. The track "Pedro's Time" reflects Joe's fascination with Latin-flavored pieces (as evidenced by Joe's previous effort Page One, and his work on Dorham's Una Mas), while pieces like "Teeter Totter", "Our Thing" and "Back Road" play with time and structure in subtle ways. CD includes a bonus alternate take of "Teeter Totter (alternate take)". CD

✨✧ VariousCapitol Rare Vol 1 – Funky Notes From The West Coast ... CD
Blue Note (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first volume in this totally excellent series which digs out rare soul and fusion cuts from the Capitol/EMI catalog from the 70s. There's loads of swirling jazzy tracks, like "Music is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz and "Peace of Mind" by Rance Allen (both of which have stellar production by Larry Mizell), "Losalamitos Latinfunklovesong" by Gene Harris, "About Love" by Ben Sidran, "Inside You" by Eddie Henderson, "The Genie" by Bobby Lyle, and "Sky Islands" by Caldera. There's also a bunch of great modern soul tracks, like "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "Annie Mae" by Natalie Cole, "While I'm Alone" by Maze, "Dindi" by Janet Lawson, and the rare "She's My Summer Breeze" by the Reflections, which is worth the price of the CD alone!

✨✧ Odies WilliamsWhat's Up Doc? ... CD
Open Mind, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
A gimmicky title and cover, but a rock-solid album – served up by a Chicago quintet headed by trumpeter Odies Williams! Williams may not be a nationally-known name, but he gets great props in the notes from Jimmy Heath and Eddie Henderson – well-deserved praise of his skills on the trumpet and warmth as a human being – the latter of which comes through clearly in the execution of these tunes. The group are mainly younger players – Carl Coan on saxes, Jordan Baskin on piano, Jake Vinsel on bass, and Brian Ritter on drums – but all of them fall in nicely with Williams' groove on the record. Titles include "Naima", "Cantaloupe Island", "Voyage", "Empathy", "You're My Everything", "Bill's Hit Tune", and "Invitation". CD
