JJ JohnsonConcepts In Blue ... LP
Pablo, 1981. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A slightly larger group, which gives Johnson a chance to show off his arranging skills – but a set that also leaves plenty of room for solos too! Features JJ Johnson on trombone, Clark Terry on trumpet, Ernie Watts on tenor and alto, and Pete Jolly and Billy Childs on keyboards! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Blue MitchellCollision In Black ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good- ... $9.99
An excellent pairing of funk talents – the tight trumpet of Blue Mitchell, and the super-soulful backings of Monk Higgins! Higgins has a groove that was schooled in the funky 45 underground of Chicago – and here, he really finds a great way to pick things up for Mitchell – relieving him of the duties of being a leader on his own, and coming up with tight jams that then let Blue step out as the main solo talent! Other players include Paul Humphrey on drums, Anthony Ortega on tenor, Jim Horn and Ernie Watts on flute, and Monk Higgins himself on organ, tenor, and piano! The whole thing's a great jam, and includes many tasty cuts, like "Deeper In Black", "Jo Ju Ja", "Blue On Black", "Monkin Around", and "Keep Your Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Liberty pressing. Cover has light wear, some light stains, and a promo stamp on the back.)

Blue MitchellVital Blue ... LP
Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
One of the rarest Blue Mitchell albums for Mainstream – and one of the most beautiful! Unlike the other sessions, most of which are electric funk outings, this one has a more spiritual side, and the kind of soulful approach you'd expect from Strata East. The group features Ernie Watts on tenor, Joe Henderson on flute, Walter Bishop on piano, and Susaye Greene singing wordless vocals on a few cuts. Highlights include the odd "Unseen Sounds", which has some great weird flute work from Henderson, plus "Booty Shakin", "Vital Blue", and "Herman's Helmet". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a factory sticker, some wear, wide clear tape on the top seam, and an unglued bottom seam with a bit of peeling.)

Night Blooming JazzmenFreedom Jazz Dance ... LP
Mainstream, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
An excellent LP of funky big band jazz – way better than you'd guess from the name of the group! The all-star ensemble – which includes Blue Mitchell, Willie Bobo, Stix Hooper, Paul Humphrey, Charles Kynard, Ernie Watts, and Joe Pass – does an excellent job of grooving tightly, in a mellow funky style that's extremely well crafted. The highlight of the LP is the group's hard swinging version of "Freedom Jazz Dance", which begins with a bouncing bass sample that we totally love – but there's loads more nice tracks, including "Rio", "All This & Heaven Too", and "Twelve Tone Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

New KarmaCelebration ... LP
A&M/Horizon, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Despite the fact that most of these guys participated in some of the best funky fusion records coming out of the 70s west coast scene, this record's not what it should be – especially when you consider it's got players like George Bohannon, Ernie Watts, and Oscar Brashear. Still, it's not a bad bit of pop funky fusion – in sort of a later Crusaders mode – and it does feature some vocals by Syreeta and Denices Williams. Titles include "Suite Syreeta", "Kwanzaa", "Well", and "Funk De Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and an unglued bottom seam.)

New John MayallMoving On ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bill Cosby introduces this hip little live set from the John Mayall group – which is fitting, as there's definitely a bit of an LA groove on the set! Mayall's still in very bluesy territory, but he also gets some great soul jazz support too – from players who include Charles Owens on flute and soprano sax, Ernie Watts on tenor, and even the great Fred Jackson on baritone! Keef Hartley adds in some mighty heavy drums, but the group's further expanded by even more American players too – including Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Freddie Robinson on guitar – both players who definitely leave their mark on the set. There's some great electric piano too – and titles include the classic "Keep Our Country Green" – plus "Christmas 71", "Things Go Wrong", "Do It", "Moving On", "Red Sky", "Reasons", "High Pressure Living", and "Worried Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jean Luc PontyKing Kong – Jean Luc Ponty Plays The Music Of Frank Zappa ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Trippy electric fusion from the west coast – a record that features Ponty, who was working with Zappa at the time, playing a set of electric jazz takes on Zappa tunes – with lots of added help from George Duke, who was also working with Zappa too! The set's almost a "birth of fusion" one – with Zappa arrangements that are clearly in a jazz-rock mode – and lots of electric bass, electric piano, and electric violin in the set. Tracks are long, and riff-heavy – and other players include Ernie Watts, Wilton Felder, Buell Neidlinger, and Ian Underwood. Titles include "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Music For Electric Violin & Low Budget Orchestra", "King Kong", and "Twenty Small Cigars". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

New Buddy RichNew One! ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very hard-burning work from Buddy's hip band of the mid 60s – a large ensemble, but one that features searing horn parts that cut through the bigger arrangements with ease! Buddy really had an ear for tuning power with personality at this point in his career – and although the group comes on with the raging energy that's every bit the Rich calling card in the 60s, they also more than make their individual voices known. Ernie Watts, Jay Corre, and Charles Owens all provide excellent contributions to the set – and titles include "Standing Up In A Hammock", "Luv", "Something For Willie", "Group Shot", "The Rotten Kid", and "New Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

New Lee RitenourCaptain Fingers ... LP
Epic, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smooth and funky fusion from Lee Ritenour – top-shelf all the way, and handled with a really soulful groove, thanks to production from the legendary Skip Drinkwater! Lee's all over the top of the guitar in true "Captain Fingers" style, and Skip makes sure he's got plenty going on underneath, too – with an all-star assemblage of players that includes Harvey Mason on drums, Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Dennis Budimir on guitar, Alphonso Johnson on bass, and Ernie Watts on saxes. The keyboards groove as nicely as the guitars (thanks Patrice!), and titles include "Margarita", "Fly By Night", "Dolphin Dreams", "Captain Fingers", and "Sun Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a stian on the bottom 3 inches and a promo stamp on back.)

New Sarah VaughanBrazilian Romance ... LP
Columbia, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last great records ever made by Sarah Vaughan – a really solid session of Brazilian tunes, one that's produced by Sergio Mendes, arranged by Dori Caymmi, and which features guest vocals by Milton Nascimento! The general approach is west coast mellow – as the group features Alphonson Johnson, George Duke, Hubert Laws, Tom Scott, and Ernie Watts – and most of the tunes are English translations of older Brazilian tracks from the 60s and 70s, done by Sarah in an easy, jazzy tone. Titles include "Love & Passion", "Your Smile", "Obsession", "Make This City Ours Tonight", "Nothing Will Be As It Was", and "Photograph". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Brazilian Romance ... CD 4.99
