VariousWorld Pacific Jazz Presents Short Cuts Volume 1 ... LP
World Pacific, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
We're not entirely certain if this compilation was put together by Pacific Jazz as a sort of "loss leader" or not, but it's filled with some great funky soul jazz and nice post bop numbers too. There's 24 tracks in all, including a lot of hard to get nuggets and nice groovy tracks, like Wilton Felder "Theme From Bullitt" and "Hi Heel Sneakers", Freddy Robinson "The Coming Atlantis" and "Before Six", Groove Holmes "Workin' On A Groovy Thing", Ernie Watts "Going Home", Wilbert Longmire "Galveston", the Jazz Crusaders "Upstairs" and Bobby Bryant "Hair", "Crisis" and "Cristo Redentor". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner & some moderate wear.)

✨✧ George CablesCables' Vision ... LP
Contemporary, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We'd sure like to have Cables' Vision – because by the end of the 70s, he was one of the hippest cats on the California scene! This wonderfully easygoing album from 1979 features Cables on both acoustic and electric – soaring to the sky on some numbers, kicking back on the keys on others – and working with a lineup that includes Bobby Hutcherson, Freddie Hubbard, Ernie Watts, and Tony Dumas. Includes the great smooth groover "Inner Glow", plus the tracks "The Stroll", "Voodoo Lady", "Morning Song", "I Told You So", and "Byrdlike". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Lee GarrettHeat For The Feets ... LP
Chrysalis, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual bit of club from Lee Garrett – a singer who's got a relatively rootsy sound overall, but who's working here with a set of smooth and and jazzy backings! Arrangements on the set are by Tom Sellers, who plays piano at the hed of a combo that includes Dave Grusin on synth, Tom Scott on saxes, Ernie Watts on flute and alto, George Bohannon on trombone, Lee Ritenour on guitar, and Harvey Mason on drums – all top-shelf fusion players who help bring a bit of polish to the set, in stark contrast to Lee's rougher vocals. The approach is almost a bit like some of Swamp Dogg's work for the clubs at the time – and titles include "How Can I Be A Man", "Heart Be Still", "You're My Everything", "Sad Sad Story", and "Stop That Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Jean-Luc PontyCanteloupe Island (King Kong/Jean-Luc Ponty Experience With The George Duke Trio) ... LP
World Pacific/Blue Note, 1969. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great double-header – one that features 2 classic Jean-Luc Ponty albums from the 60s! Record one presents the album King Kong – an album that features Ponty, who was working with Frank 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". Record two features The Jean Luc Ponty Experience With The George Duke Trio – a much better album than you'd expect, without any of the noodling of the players' later albums! At the time of this set, Duke and Ponty are breaking out of the hippie weirdness of the Zappa records, and get a bit more serious – working through some long, extended modal grooves that rank with the best MPS work by either player. Duke's on electric piano, ringing out in a weird spacy sound, and Ponty's violin is mostly restrained, used to cast waves of sound over the top of the tracks, in a way that works well with Duke's soulful resonant approach. Titles include "Foosh", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Starlight Starbright". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ 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
(Cover has light wear & some pen inside the gatefold.)

✨✧ David T WalkerPress On ... LP
Ode, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warmly chromatic and nicely tripped out guitar work from David T Walker – laid out over some great larger arrangements from the legendary Jerry Peters! The style here is a great blend of studio jazz and soul – a completely new recasting of the role of the guitarist in the soul instrumental field, and one that's clearly inspired by the styles of CTI and Kudu, yet a bit more straight ahead overall. Walker's guitar is amazing throughout – laidback, yet always filled with a strong sense of "voice" that really comes through – and other players on the set include longtime studio associates, like Harvey Mason on drums, Ernie Watts on alto, Tom Scott on tenor, and Oscar Brasher on trumpet. Titles are mostly covers, but done in really great versions – and tunes include "If You Let Me", "Superstition", "Work To Do", "Brother, Brother", "Press On", "Didn't I Blow Your Mind", and "If That's The Way You Feel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has wear.)

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonHead On ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most sophisticated albums that Bobby Hutcherson recorded with reedman Harold Land – a very hip session that features the arrangements of piano player Todd Cochran – also known as Bayete for a pair of early 70s albums on Prestige! The sound here is more farther-reaching than before for the team of Hutcherson and Land – a deepening of the soulful spirits first cooked up on their earlier collaborations, stretched out to farther-reaching territory in the hands of Cochran's arrangements and compositions. The group's got a full sound too – with trumpet and flugelhorn from Oscar Brashear, trombone from George Bohannon, and added reeds from players who include Ernie Watts, Fred Jackson, and Charles Owens. Harold Land plays tenor and flute, Hutcherson vibes and marimba, and Cochran is on acoustic piano throughout – but the record also features some electric keys from William Henderson. Titles include the 3 part suite "At The Source", plus "Many Thousands Gone", "Clockwork Of The Spirits", and "Mtume". LP, Vinyl record album
(UA pressing. Cover has light wear.)

A heavy lineup – with Anthony Ortega, Harold Land, and Ernie Watts on saxes, Milcho Leviev on piano, and Paul Humphrey on drums! Titles include "3/4 For Mayor Tom", "Prince Albert", "Viva Tirado 85", and "The Redd Foxx". LP, Vinyl record album
