✨✧ Art Blakey's Jazz MessengersLes Liaisons Dangereuses (Epic) ... LP
Epic, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Art Blakey's soundtrack to this fantastic French film is one of his best non-Blue Note albums ever – and it's got the additional bonus of featuring performances by the great French tenor star Barney Wilen! The tunes here are way more than just short scene-setting soundtrack numbers – and are instead some incredibly memorable numbers from these great years of the Jazz Messengers – handled with all the fire of their Blue Note sides. The date was recorded in New York – with Wilen on tenor, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Bobby Timmons on piano – and the tracks are a great mix of hardbop riffs and very catchy jazzy themes for the soundtrack. Titles include "No Problem", "Weehawken Mad Pad", "Valmontana", and "Miguel's Party". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Epic pressing. Cover looks great!)

✨✧ Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3LP set) ... LP
Brainfeeder, 2015. New Copy 3LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Carl AndersonAbsence Without Love ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A wicked little set from Carl Anderson – a singer who first found fame on the state, later sung in a spiritual world, but does an especially great job here! Anderson's got some really mighty pipes on the date – a vocal approach that's bold, robust, and plenty proud – stepping out with a bit more strength than some of his mainstream contemporaries in the early 80s – almost at a level that's in Luther Vandross territory, and we mean that in a good way. Production is by Richard Rudolph, who brings in the hip mix of sophisticated soul and jazz touches he used while working with Minnie Riperton in the 70s – especially near the end of her too-short life – and titles include the nice groover "Buttercup", plus "C'est La Vie", "Fooled Myself Again", "Lose That Girl", "AWOL", and "Amour".

Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter ... LP
Epic, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
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)... $5.99
Heavy duty hardbop – one of three amazing Epic Records sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! Dave didn't ever cut many sessions as a leader – but when he did, they really cooked hard – with a quality level and sharpness of vision that easily rivals the best on Blue Note or Prestige Records at the time! In fact, this album would have been right at home on either imprint – a smoking session of soulful hardbop, with very long songs that allow plenty of room for solos by players who include Charlie Rouse on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Horace Parlan on piano – who are all in the group with Dave, alongside bassist Peck Morrison. There's a nicely unbridled feel to the whole set – a real "something extra" that's always made the album a treasure – and titles include the side-long 17 minute "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd".

Big BoiBoomiverse (swirl-colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Epic, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
A win for wily hip hip mainstay Big Boi's growing legacy as a solo star! The onetime more subtly innovative half of the Outkast – subtle as compared to Andre 3000's more flamboyant presence, anyway – succeeding mightily out front now, backed with solid, wisely timeless Organized Noize production and an impressive roster of guests, none of whom outshine Big Boi. They include Killer Mike, Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane & Pimp C. After all these years, Big Boi still manages to spit wordy, fast raps while sounding perfectly relaxed, and comparably laidback rhymes with fierce focus. Much respect staying true to his style and staying relevant! Includes "Da Next Day", "Kill Jill", "Mic Jack", "In The South", "Order Of Operations", "All Night", "Get Wit It", "Overthunk", "Chocolate", "Made Man", "Freakanomics" and "Follow Deez".

Big Grams (Big Boi & Phantogram)Big Grams (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Epic, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Adventurous ATL hip hop veteran Big Boi teams up with NYC electro pop duo Phantogram as Big Grams! Big Boi has never lacked for creative ambition – his one time repuation as the straighter-laced half of Outkast sold him short back in the day – as he always had a incredible way of adapting his flow, phrasing and lyrical focus to a diverse range of production styles. Big Grams finds a nice middle ground between Phantogram's bright, melodic synth pop style and the more beat heavy needs of a dexterous MC. Sarah Barthel's lovely vocals as sweet as ever, and work suprisingly well when paired with Big Boi's distinctive rhymes. Titles include "Run For Your Life", "Lights On", "Fell In The Sun", "Put It On Her", "Goldmine Junkie", "Born To Shine" with Run The Jewels and "Drum Machine" with Skrillex. LP, Vinyl record album

Colin BlunstoneJourney (UK pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The third solo album by Colin Blunstone – the magic-voiced singer who was lead vocalist of the Zombies, and went on to cut some god-like solo work in the early 70s! This album's a bit less sublime than Colin's first two – with tracks that veer a bit more towards the soft rock sound of the 70s, with some compressed AOR touches in place of the floating instrumentation of earlier albums – but it still sounds mighty nice to our ears, as Colin's voice is always a treat, and the record has a irrepressible charm in its optimistic presentation of some of the material. Essentially, if you dig Colin lots, you'll still want this one – as it's got more than a few nice moments – and is more of an evolution of his solo work than a divergence from it. Titles include "Setting Yourself Up", "Brother Lover", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "It's Magical", "You Who Are Lonely", "Beginning", and "Keep The Curtains Closed Today". LP, Vinyl record album

Luiz BonfaSoftly – Luiz Bonfa & His Guitar ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the better early bossa albums by Bonfa, and one that doesn't have the sleepy quality that you find on some of his other records. Luiz' guitar is backed by a nice little combo, and the tracks have a lively rhythm, with occasional vocals, and some nice flute solos from time to time. The whole thing sounds a bit like an early Baden Powell session – and includes the tracks "Amor Em Brasilia", "Amor De Solidao", "Murmurio", "Inquietacao", "Voce Chegou Sorrindo", and "Saudade De Bahia". Also issued in Brazil under the title O Violao E O Samba. LP, Vinyl record album

Ann BurtonBlue Burton (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Epic (Japan), 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $44.99
A beautifully gentle album from vocalist Ann Burton – recorded with sublime accompaniment from the trio of pianist Louis Van Dyke, a fragile and spare talent on the keys – and a perfect match for Burton on the mood of the album! Ann's vocals really come across with the mature grace that's always made us love her so much – and overall, the session's got a strength that goes far beyond most of her indie albums from later years. Most tunes are extremely spare – with bass stepping out first behind Ann's vocals, as Louis' piano lines sneak in with just a few quiet lines that slowly grow as the tune progresses – all in a style that's neither a cliche of older torch, nor the too-adult mode of more pop jazz vocal albums of the time. Piet Noordjik plays alto sax on a few of the tunes on the set – and titles include "You've Changed", "The Good Life", "Go Away Little Boy", "It's Easy To Remember", "But Not For Me", "He Was Too Good To Me", and "Sunny". LP, Vinyl record album

Betty Carter & Ray BryantMeet Betty Carter & Ray Bryant ... LP
Epic, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A classic album pairing the bop girl vocalist Betty Carter with the sensitive backing of Ray Bryant's piano! The setting is spare and fragile, and Betty's voice is in beautiful form. This is one of the few LPs that Betty cut during the time with a straight jazz feel – and it's filled with loads of nice tracks like "Sneaking Around", "Threesome", "Thou Swell", "No Moon At All", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "I Could Write A Book".

ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Very Good ... $2.99
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
(Quadrophonic pressing, in a cover with gold border. Cover has edge wear. Vinyl has a few short clicks.)
