Lester YoungLester Young Memorial Album (Epic 2LP) ... LP
Epic, Late 30s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Some of Lester Young's first great moments of prominence – his late 30s recordings with the Count Basie Band, offered here in a well-done collection issued as a memorial after his death in 1959! The sets are all led by Basie, but most feature strong saxophone lead by Young – solos that helped define the tenor sax sound of a generation, nestled in alongside other top-shelf players who include Buddy Tate on tenor, Freddie Green on guitar, and Harry Edison and Buck Clayton on trumpets. The set features a hefty 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Broadway", "Blow Top", "Dickie's Dream", "Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie", "Pound Cake", "Rock A Bye Basie", "Riff Interlude", "Easy Does It", "Jump For Me", "Hollywood Jump", "Tickle Toe", "12th Street Rag", "I Left My Baby", and "Shoe Shine Boy".

Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3CD set) ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2015. New Copy 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

✨✧ Mother's FinestMother's Finest (Epic) ... LP
Epic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
More rock than funk, but with strong elements of both! This is a record for those who like a lot of guitar in their soul – as the band jams away hard, with a pared down 4 piece combo that includes Joyce out front. Titles include "Rain", "Fire", "Fly With Me", "Dontcha Wanna Love Me", and ironically titled "Niggizz Can't Sang Rock & Roll". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VibrationsVibrating Vibrations – The Okeh & Epic Singles 1963 to 1968 ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer modern soul from The Vibrations – archetypal recordings from the mid 60s, and work that few other groups like this could ever match! The set brings together the quintet's sublime work for the Okeh and Epic labels – recordings done after their earlier sides for Chess, with a balance of groove and polish that's simply amazing! Even the mellowest cuts here seem to have a tight sort of punch on the bottom – a kick that offsets that well-crafted vocals beautifully, and which has made many of these tracks longtime favorites on the Northern Soul dancefloors in the UK. And although there's been other Vibrations reissues over the years, this may well be one of the best – a perfectly-done package that avoids any of their looser moments, and which also includes a handful of unreleased tracks as well! Titles include "I Took An Overdose", "Love In Them There Hills", "You Better Beware", "Canadian Sunset", "Cause You're Mine", "End Up Crying", "Watusi Time", "Keep On Keeping On", "Forgive & Forget", "Ain't Love That Way", "Sloop Dance", "The Searching Is Over", "Pick Me", "Soul A Go Go", and "Always Had Your Way".

✨✧ VariousBest Of Soul Time – Selection of Northern Soul Classics From The Archives Of Columbia, Epic and Date ... CD
Sony (UK), 1960s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Looking for rare soul? This is the place – as the 2CD set features 58 hard to find tracks from the Epic, Okeh, Columbia, and Date labels – all part of the CBS enclave, but also labels that were cutting some great soul singles back in the 60s, the kind of well-done indie-sounding tracks that always fell through the cracks! In a way, since these ones came from major label sources, they're actually rarer cuts than many smaller label sides – which tended to stay in circulation a bit longer – making the work of the compilation even more essential, as there's loads of tunes here that you'd be really hard pressed to find as singles! Way more here to describe in just a short note – but a few tracks include "Walk Like A Man" by Johnny Moore, "Abracadabra" by Erma Franklin, "One In A Million" by Rhetta Hughes, "Keep On Loving You" by Otis Leavill, "Pity My Feet" by Kenny Bernard, "Love On A Mountain Top" by Robert Knight, "You Don't Know Where Your Interest Lies" by Dana Valery, "I Need You" by Shane Martin, "Tend To Business" by The Rivingtons, "If You Were There" by Obrey Wilson, "Get My Hands On Some Lovin" by The Artistics, "Get It From The Bottom" by The Steelers, "He Who Picks A Rose" by The Carstairs, "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" by Bobby Lester, and "Temptation Is Calling My Name" by Lee David.

✨✧ DAP x The NomadsEpic/To My People ... 7-inch
Stay The Course, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Strong independent hip hop from heretofore unknown Brooklyn emcee DAP – with live instrumentation by The Nomads – the first single on the upstart Stay The Course label, and here's hoping they do just that! This is solid stuff – rooted in raw 90s east coast boom bap, inspiration-wise – but it's not so much a throwback, as it is a fresh take on a timelessly inventive style. The Nomads provide a spare jazz funk backdrop of drums, bass, keys and sax that suits it perfectly. "Epic" and "To My People" are both top notch tracks. A solid start! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes in a great screenprint sleeve, too!)

✨✧ Link Wray & The WraymenSlinky – The Epic Sessions 1958 to 1961 ... CD
Epic/Sundazed, Mid 50s-Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The killer material rock guitar instrumentals trailblazer Link Wray cut for Epic in the late 50s and early 60s – legendary material from Link and his Wraymen – in jam packed 2CD set featuring a slew of fiery tunes that remained in the vaults for more than 40 years! It's their complete recordings for Epic – which range from a slinky, raw moody guitar groove to raucous, fuzzed out blasts that pre-figured so much of the garage and proto punk to come! The Wraymen features also feature Link's brothers Vernon rhythm guitar and piano and Doug Wray on drums – plus Shorty Hampton on bass. 46 tracks on 2CDs: "Slinky", "Right Turn", "Raw Hide", "Studio Blues", "Radar", "Walkin' With Link", "El Toro", "Comanche", "Handclapper", "Mary Ann", "Rendevous", "Trail Of The Lonesome Pine", "IF This Is Wrong", "Tenderly", "Tijuana" and many more – including some nuggets alternately credited to The Ponies, Doug Wray and Bert & Ray.

Nancy AmesSpiced With Brasil ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
Bossa with a great American twist! Nancy Ames was an American pop singer of the 60s – one who did mostly folksy tunes with a light California feel, and who here is coming up with some great bossa nova numbers, set to arrangements by Stu Phillips! The package has all the sunniness of a summer LA afternoon at the beach – with the driving groove of a pop bossa session from Rio. The album's perennial favorite is Nancy's remake of "Mas Que Nada" (done here as "Pow Pow Pow") – but there's loads of other wonderful numbers, and the whole album's great! Titles include "Laia La Daia", "Love's Like Wine", "So Nice", and "A Man & A Woman". As the song says – Pow Pow Pow! Her greatest LP by a mile, too! LP, Vinyl record album

ArgentRing Of Hands ... LP
Epic, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
The second album by Argent – Rod Argent's project immediately after the breakup of the Zombies! There's plenty of Zombie-like ideas here – particularly those floating around the Odyssey and Oracle album, but they're also done without the dreamy pop style of Colin Blunstone's vocals, which makes for a much harder sound overall. Added into that the guitar of Russ Ballard, which really kicks into the tunes nicely, and you've got some great rock and roll work – written with a pop sensibility, but played with a razor-sharp edge that's pretty hard hitting. Titles include "Lothlorien", "Rejoice", "Pleasure", "Sweet Mary", "Where Are We Going Wrong", "Rejoice", "Cast Your Spell Uranus", and "Celebration". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1961. Sealed (reissue)... $16.99
Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter". A old favorite on the south side of Chicago! LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
Heavy duty hardbop – and one of three amazing Epic sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! The set grooves as massively as his One and Two Feet In The Gutter albums – and is recorded with a similar lineup that includes Horace Parlan on piano, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Charlie Rouse on tenor, and Clark Terry on trumpet. Dave's drumming is mighty and soulful, and the set smokes with a lively rolling groove that mixes hardbop and soul jazz into a raw early 60s sound! Includes the 17 minute long jam "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd". LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie with Lester YoungLester Leaps In ... CD
Epic (Japan), Late 30s/1955. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". CD

Epic, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves. The group has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a bit hit with the kids of their generation, and hip hop sample heads in years to come. This 12 track greatest hits set includes the classic g-funk number "Dusic", plus "Music Magic", "Dazz", "Good High", "Free Happy", "We Don't Wanna Sit Down, We Wanna Get Down", and "Living From The Mind".

ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". LP, Vinyl record album

ChaseEnnea ... LP
Epic, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $2.99
A jazz rock classic that still sounds pretty darn tasty today – forged on the heels of Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears, but with a sound that's leaner and meaner! The group's led by trumpeter Bill Chase – hence their name – and features lead vocals by GG Shinn and Terry Richards, both in a style that's got the same blue-eyed jazz soul overtones as that used by the groups mentioned above. The real strength of the tracks, though, is their jazzy backings – horn-heavy, as you'd expect, and hitting some great riffs and licks on the album's side-long title "suite", which features many instrumental passages. Titles include "Hades", "Aphrodite (parts 1 & 2)", "Zeus", "Poseidon", "Cronus", "It Won't Be Long", "I Can Feel It", and "Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Chocolate Jam CoSpread Of The Future ... CD
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $18.99
A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar Brashear on trumpet, George Duke on keyboards, David T Walker on guitar, and even Dorothy Ashby on harp! Chancler sings lead vocals on most cuts – but he's also joined by Virginia Ayers and Leo Mille on some cuts too – making for a really well-rounded sound that's easily one of the best jazz-into-soul sessions like this from the 70s – almost topping the more famous work from folks like Lenny White or Mtume! Titles include "Don't Leave Me Now Stay With Me", "Feeling", "This Time", "Looking Glass", and the extended "Suite Chocolate". CD
