FatnicePeace Love Unity & Havin Fun (Lil' Dave Fun Size mix, Windy City mix)/My Favorite Things (Buscates Vibrate mix) ... 7-inch
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)... $4.99
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness the Lil Dave mix is missing – and the flipside features Fatnice's own take on the concept of "Favorite Things" – served up with this true school vibe that should make him huge, if the world has any sense of justice! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fumio KarashimaMy Favorite Things ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the most spiritual albums we've heard in years from pianist Fumio Karashima – a set that has the Japanese jazz legend working with a host of different guests, including some horn players who really give his music some depth! The choice of material is great – and Karashima eschews most of his own compositions for work by Herbie Hancock, Duke Pearson, Jimmy Heath, Bobby Hutcherson, and others – given lively readings by an ensemble who really know how to burst out at the front, then soar with these very strong solos. The album features a great reading of "My Favorite Things", with a unique use of two bassists; a spare duet with trumpeter Terumasa Hino on "Black Orpheus"; guest work from guitarist Kazumi Watanabe on "Chan's Song"; and nice takes on "So Near So Far", "Gingerbread Boy", "Subtle Neptune", and "Jeannine".

Sergio MendesSergio Mendes' Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A sweet little pairing of the keyboards of Sergio Mendes and the early arranging styles of Dave Grusin – and a set that's quite different than some of Sergio's vocal albums with Brasil 66! The style here is all instrumental – and Mendes plays both piano and electric piano, plus a bit of harpsichord too – working with a hip LA group that features Grusin on organ, Tom Scott on flute and soprano sax, and John Pisano on guitar – plus a bit of Brazilian percussion from Joao Donato and Moacir Santos! The result is a heavenly 60s groove – some slight larger backings, plus great work from the jazzy group at the core – and titles include a stunning version of "Ponteio" – plus other Brazilian groovers like "A Banda", "Veleiro", and "Tempo Feliz". There's also a few tracks of US material like "I Say a Little Prayer" and "Comin' Home Baby", done with a nice bossa groove! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneMy Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My Favorite Things" a million times – but it still blows our mind the way Coltrane hits this incredibly soulful modal groove, twisting and turning on soprano sax, always keeping things interesting, so that we're surprised that the cut's 13 minutes have gone by so quickly! The rest of the record's equally great – and the 3 other long cuts are "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Summertime" and "But Not for Me". As great today as when it was cut, and still one of Coltrane's most revelatory albums! With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Producer, multi-instrumentalist and all around funky soul patriot Mr President, aka Patchworks delivers a solid full length for the Favorite label! Rave up instrumentals and vocal numbers featuring guests Mr Day, Mounam, Hawa and JRMNM and it wins on both levels – with nods to classic and hip hop era funk. Mr President handles all the production and instrumentation himself, and quite impressively so. Titles include "Meet Again", "From South To North", "Tribute To RZA", a cover of "Love And Happiness" with Mr Day, "The Best Is Yet To Come" with Mr Day & Hawa, "You Move Me" and more.

Calvin B RhoneI Believe/Lord!/We've Come To Praise Him ... 12-inch
Favorite (France), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $18.99
A beautiful mix of secular and spiritual, gospel and club – in a mode that's very much like the classic work of the Clark Sisters at the start of the 80s! Calvin B Rhone is maybe even hipper, though – as this single has a very tight small group approach – sharp keyboards over a bad-stepping groove on "I Believe" – a warmer, soaring vibe on "Lord" – and a snappy, catchy lyric on "We've Come To Praise Him"! There's a current of jazz on all the cuts – almost as if Donny Hathaway had made it to the early 80s, and opened up his groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Joao SelvaNatureza ... LP
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic album of Brazilian funk, and one that's got a great contemporary twist, too – given that the whole thing is a collaboration between singer Joao Selva and Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart! Patchworks handles most of the instrumentation here – apart from some percussion from Selva – and the groove is right in the very best samba soul modes of the early 70s – that slinky, funky territory that you'd find on the best records by Jorge Ben and some of the many artists he influenced – presented here in a perfect style that feels far more vintage than you'd expect, and which has none of the clubbier touches of other Patchworks projects! Selva's a great singer too – with a raspy charm that's beautiful – and which, again, is very much in the spirit of the sound he's going for. Titles include "Pessoas", "Se Foi", "Maria", "Perto De Ti", "Babado Forte", and "Natureza". LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
Guest what? They DO make 'em like they used to – at least in terms of 70s AOR – which seems to be having a wonderful comeback in the hands of singers like Al Sunny! The record's contemporary, but could have easily been crafted in the LA studios of the mid 70s – as Al's got a wonderful ear for easygoing grooves, top-shelf instrumentation, and just the right sort of production polish to put the whole thing together without ever making things sound too slick! The great Florian Pellissier is on board to help out on all the tracks – playing some excellent Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and other keyboards – and showing us yet another side of his surprisingly wide talents. Titles include a great remake of the Ned Doheny track "Get It Up For Love" – plus "Open Up Your Eyes", "Supervision", "Time To Decide", "Beautiful Lady", and "Since I've Been Loving You".

Three great tracks from one of our favorite Patchworks projects! "African Music" has a song that lives up to its title, but also has the warmly clubby vibe that we love from Voilaaa – which almost makes the whole thing feel like a late 70s post-colonial track recorded in Paris – right down to the strong lead vocals from Lass! "Decalement" has cool fast-scatting vocals from Pat Kalla on the vocal version, plus a cool plucked string wrapped around the groove – and "Problems" is more of a straighter, high-stepping club track – with very offbeat vocals from Sir Jean! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – served up here in his Voilaaa project, which might well be our favorite of all his many musical enterprises! The groove brings together funky club with some slight touches of 70s Afro Funk – maybe not as much as you'd guess from the image on the cover, but definitely an ear for Nigerian grooves in the way that Bruno uses horns over the top of most tracks – and creates these fast-stepping rhythms that have some nicely complex percussion patterns! The whole thing almost feels like the best of those post-colonial projects that were recorded in Paris in the late 70s – especially given the French lyrics on the vocal cuts – and titles include "People", "Mambo Football", "Mbele", "Problems", "Our La Vie", "African Music", "Decalement", and "La France".

VariousAOR Global Sounds 1977 to 1982 ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
AOR sounds from around the globe – proof that sweet, smooth 70s grooves didn't just come from studios in California and New York! The records here are all relatively obscure – mostly non-American acts, but working with a wonderfully groovy, wonderfully laidback style – nicely polished, but never too slick or commercial – and very much in that special spirit that's been lauded of late by the growing waves of AOR collectors around the globe! Most numbers come across with a nicely soulful vibe, and a fair bit of jazzy inflections – and although the pace is usually somewhat slow-stepping, there's definitely a groove in place on all these tracks! Titles include "Je Suis En Amour" by Diane Tell, "Rio Sinal Verde" by Junior Mendes, "Got To Be Lovin You" by Erik Tagg, "Peppermint Park" by Paul Hart, "Space Lady" by Ulla, "In Alto Mare" by Loredana Berte, "Neon" by Placa Luminosa, and "Lihue" by Nohelani Cypriano.

A great look at the farther reaches of AOR during the glory days of the genre – not the oft-played hits that still seem to clutter the radio airwaves all these many decades later – but instead a big batch of underground tracks that serve up all the best modes of the style, but in a really fresh way! These aren't just the smooth sounds from New York and Los Angeles studios in the late 70s – but instead they're tracks from around the planet – often done at a level that has a more deeply soulful vibe than more commercial music – and which crosses over nicely to collectors of rare boogie cuts from the early 80s, or fans of late 70s modern soul! Most tracks have English language lyrics – despite their global sources – and titles include "Girl" by Stratus, "Mais Uma Chance" by Willy Santana, "It's About Time" by Funky Team, "More Than A Minute" by Billy Always, "It's Always Something With You" by Jeff Silna, "Dirt In The Sky" by 7 Days Unlimited, "Keeps Me Hanging On" by Stacey, "Light Unto The World" by Archie James Cavanaugh, "The Heckler" by Jon Konteau, "Heart To Heart" by Out Of The Fog, "Harbor Place" by Steve Turner, and "Don't Let The Devil" by George Nasif.

A sweet vinyl sampler EP from the excellent Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds collection – one that offers up three great tracks from the collection in new extended versions! The music echoes some of the best underground American club of the time – and all the instrumentation is nice and tight, and done in styles you might know from bigger Brazilian groups like Banda Black Rio or Unaio Black – but served up here by more focused solo vocal artists in the lead. These extended versions are great – not messed-up remixes, but more like the kind of old school disco edits – and tracks include "Labirinto (ext Nick The Record version)" by Famks, "Ripa Na Xulipa (ext Charles Maurice version)" by Rabio De Saia, and "Relax (ext Waxist version)" by Paniel De Controle. 12-inch, Vinyl record

VariousCaribbean Disco Boogie Sounds – Rare & Obscure Gems From The Caribbean Territories 1977 to 1982 ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
A killer collection of funky soul from the Caribbean – not tracks that have a typical island sort of sound, with roots in calypso, soca, or reggae – and instead just he kind of key cuts that match the best underground work on the New York scene! Keep in mind that lots of American disco came from musicians who'd moved up north from the Caribbean – bringing a sunny spirit and driving rhythms in the process, as well as a post-colonial, diaspora approach to the music – which was then fused with American soul and funk for the clubs! This set has a very similar vibe, but just reverses the process – with grooves that borrow plenty from the hipper club styles of the late 70s and early 80s, and come across with a freshly non-commercial vibe, given their Caribbean roots. We'd never heard most tracks here before – hats off to Waxist for compiling the collection – and titles include "Cosmopolitan London" by Ray Williams, "Praise Jah" by Oluko Imo, "My African Religion" by Paul Hurlock, "Going To The Party" by Barry Bryson, "Let Me Love You" by Teddy Davis, and "Macho Man" by Eddie & The Movement.

Arian's perm on the cover gives you a hint of how the set might sound – and the whole thing is maybe even better than you might think! The album's an unusual soul set from early 80s Yugoslavia – with vocals that are partly in English, and a sound that's heavy on the same kind of keyboards and basslines that you'd hear coming from the New York scene – on tunes that include some numbers penned by Hubert Eaves and Bobby Caldwell – and sung by Arian with a blue-eyed soul approach – in vocals that are maybe not as strong as his American contemporaries, but which more than make up for their lack with an overall sense of groove. Titles include "Your Love Makes Me A Winner", "Sure It's Funky", "Still Together", "Novi Susret", "Can't Say Goodbye", and "Lutas Velikim Gradom". LP, Vinyl record album

Junior Byron's got a warm, fully-fleshed approach to his music – soaring on the uptempo tracks, and wickedly stepping on the mellower numbers – almost that mix of warmth and groove that you'd find in some of the best work by Leon Ware or Roy Ayers around the same time, but maybe more decidedly aimed at the dancefloor overall! Production is great – more sunny west coast than you'd expect from Toronto – and titles include "Heart To Heart Sensation", "Galaxy", "Inch By Inch", "Space Cowboy", "Too Much Tonight", and the great mellow "Sunshine".

Greg Yoder had already won us completely when we flipped the album over and saw that he does a version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady" – alongside really fresh remakes of "Moondance", "Parchman Farm", and Kenny Rankin's groover "Haven't We Met" – really great company of songs alongside his own material – presented by a group that also features vibes on most tracks, which step out in solos on some key moments – and really make for a different variation on the AOR sound of the time! Plus, the whole thing's got a vibe that's more indie jazz vocal than any sort of overproduced commercial material – a really charming approach served up in a relaxed Honolulu studio setting – on titles that include all the great ones listed above, plus a version of Emmitt Rhodes "You Must Have", and the cuts "Dreamer Of Life", "Things Were So Easy", and "She's So Easy".

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! The work here is from the obscure French disco underground – a European scene that never got the same exposure as German or Italian work for clubs – which makes the whole package a really great discovery in sound! The music is surprisingly fresh, and often quite funky too – and done in modes that are arguably warmer and more soulful than most other European disco – and often a lot like the best American underground club of the period. Some tracks have breathy female vocals, while others have bolder lyrics that almost echo some of the global musical crossovers happing in 70s Paris and a few of the later tracks bring in electro elements, but in a subtle way we totally love. The collection's a follow-up to the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation – and like that one, it's really a cut above the usual! Titles include "Super Star" by Contessa, "Lady Jones" by Over Drive, "Music Madness (ext Charles Maurice version)" by Beckie Bell, "Y'A Du Blues" by Marche Noire, "Un Fait Divers & Rien De Plus (re-remix)" by Le Club, "Pour Moi Ca Va (Charles Maurice version)" by France Lise, "Polar (Charles Maurice version)" by Bernard Guyvan, and "Minuit L'Heure Du Swing" by Didier Makaga.

That's a suave-looking dude on the cover, and there's some suave-sounding sounds within – the cream of the crop of the hippest spectrum of the French club scene at the start of the 80s, brought together in a beautiful package of grooves! The work here is quite different than some of the cheesier, clunkier Euro disco hits of the time – and instead, there's a lot of care and craft brought to the rhythms and lyrics – often a lot more soul elements than you might expect, and with occasional global currents that reflect the unique sound of Paris in the postcolonial years. There's almost an AOR catchiness to some of the tunes, but the presentation is more strongly soulful overall – on titles that include "Bye Cocotiers" by Marc Ashy, "Keep Cool" by Messan, "Sunshine" by Greg Smaha, "Sheriff's Horse" by Roots, "Funky Biguine" by Crystal, "Havana" by Nielo Feel, "Funk Force Leader" by Ideku Dynasty, "Talk Me Mam's" by Black Bells Group, "Le Sherif Qui Danse" by Claude Morgan, and "Givin It Up" by Charms.

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – one of the few global sites to really capture the same sort of energy of American funk and soul, yet still be able to give it a great local twist of its own! From the bossa years onwards, Brazil was always full of super-tight musicians – and by the time the 70s rolled around, there were plenty of records with grooves as great as work in the US from greats like Kool & The Gang or Earth Wind & Fire – both groups who've clearly provided a lot of inspiration to most of the acts on this set! And like some of the best American groups, the Brazilian once started to change their style a bit once the 70s came to a close – with these lean, funky modes that are mighty nice – and which were maybe already more present in Brazil than they were in the American mainstream. But all that history aside, this is one smoking little set – killer clubby funk tracks that have a flavor that's completely universal, even if you can't understand the lyrics – but even the way those lyrics are sung, they're plenty darn catchy, even without the benefit of language. Titles include "Amgio Branca" by Marcia Maria, "To Parada Nua Tua" by Almir Ricardi, "Contigo" by Adriana, "Cara Feita" by Kaito, "Alegria No Ar" by Rosana, "Natureza Viva" by Brenda, "Minas Do Rei Salomao" by Cristina Camargo, and "Valeu A Pena" by Lady Zu.

✨✧ Human Egg (Jean-Pierre Massiera)Human Egg ... LP
Favorite (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Freaky fuzzy club music from the legendary Jean-Pierre Massiera – a weird and wild blend of funky rhythms, spacey electronics, and some of the most mindblowing production you'll ever hear! The grooves are plenty tight, but also stretch out nicely to the sky, too – almost taking on a proggish tinge at points, but without any jamming – just a bit of majesty on some of the vocals, and a strong, powerful lead on some of the fuzzy guitars! Most tracks have some sort of lead vocals, but there are a few instrumentals too – and titles include "Egg", "Hiroshima", "Love Like This", "Delusion", "I Got A Dream Of My Own", "Feeling On My Mind", and "The Lonely Man".

✨✧ VariousMore Perfect Harmony – Sweet Soul Groups 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Harmony soul – our favorite kind of soul – served up in a sublime batch of 24 rare tunes from the late 60s and early 70s, presented in an all-legit package with great sound and well-done notes! As with the first volume, there's a strong influence here from mid 60s Impressions – a crackling vocal approach that's honest, personal, and heartfelt – and never too smooth, even when the sound is sweet and warm. There's also a few well-chosen female group soul tunes on the set – nicely offsetting the mostly-male approach to harmony with some key cuts that remind us that the girls could often go a deep in the genre as the guys. The whole thing floats along on a heavenly cloud of vocals and lightly-done backings – perfect late nite listening, and a must-have set for any fan of the genre! Titles include "Keep On Trying" by The Invincibles, "Chapel Bells Are Calling" by The Insiders, "You're Gonna Make It" by The Festivals, "Daydreamer" by CC & Company, "I Like The Way You Love Me" by Foxy, "So Glad You're Home" by The Superbs, "Things Will Be Better" by The Just Brothers, "I'm Still Here" by The Notations, "Never Will I" by The Magnificent Seven, and "Someone Else's Arms" by Channel 3.

✨✧ VariousOne Track Mind – More Motown Guys ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Never-heard songs from the Motown empire of the 60s – all new discoveries from the label's mighty deep vaults – all of them totally great tracks that make for a superb new look at the Detroit powerhouse of soul! Many of these cuts are in a Northern Soul mode – the kind of upbeat groovers that made Motown a huge favorite on the British scene right from the start, and which make the UK Kent label a perfect spot to showcase work this great – with detailed notes on all the tracks, excellent sound quality, and an impeccable ear for choosing just the right sort of tracks to pop a groove like the bigger singles from the label. Some of the cuts here are early recordings by artists who'd later break big, others are more obscure Motown acts – and the package features 24 titles that include "Goose Wobbling Time" by Popcorn Wylie, "I'll Be Satisfied" by Frank Wilson, "Where Are You" by Ivy Jo, "One Track Mind" by Marv Johnson, "Heart To Heart" by Earl Van Dyke, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by Edwin Starr, "I'm Here Now That You Need Me" by The Fantastic Four, "Imagination Is Running Wild" by The Spinners, "The In Crowd" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Wish I Didn't Love You So" by The Monitors, "The Touch Of Venus" by Marvin Gaye, "I'd Rather Forget" by The Temptations, and "Kissing In The Shadows" by Johnny Bristol.

Lorez AlexandriaMore Of The Great Lorez Alexandria ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A beautiful album by one of our favorite jazz singers! Lorez Alexandria is in a perfect setting here – singing with subtly sophisticated backings that really let her take charge, and direct the songs tightly with her incredibly soulful vocals! Instrumentation is mostly in a small combo mode – with the Wynton Kelly trio at the core, augmented by a bit of guitar from Ray Crawford, and some alto sax from Paul Horn – and although the album's got an easygoing feel, it also keenly shows the tightness that's always made Lorez so great! Styles are a blend of soul and jazz, plus just a hint of bossa, heard beautifully on the album's rendition of "O Barquinho". Other tracks include "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", "Dancing On The Ceiling", "Once", "Angel Eyes", "No More", and "That Far Away Look". LP, Vinyl record album

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoCertain Blacks (Inner City) ... LP
America/Inner City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers! The centerpiece of the album is the extended track "Certain Blacks (Do What They Wanna)" – done in a beautiful mix of politics and free group improvisation that come across with amazing power and clarity – making the piece one of the best translations of the Chicago AACM spirit to the European scene. Other tracks on the session include the soulfully spiritual number "One For Jarman", which captures the group at a uniquely laidback level – and the bluesy "Bye Bye Baby", which features one of the few pairings of the group with Chicago Beau and harmonica player Julio Finn.

ArtisticsI'm Gonna Miss You ... LP
Brunswick, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really breakout moment for The Artistics – and the start of a really sublime run with the great Brunswick Records! The group had already broken a bit on Okeh a few years before – securing a top spot on the Chicago scene with their bouncy northern soul groove – a love of rhythm that made them as much a favorite on dancefloors as they were with fans of harmony soul. But on this sweet set, things come together even better than before – thanks to strong leads by singer Marvin Smith, who brings a real sense of personality to the group's harmonies – and wonderful Brunswick studio help that includes Sonny Sanders arrangements and Carl Davis production. The whole thing's wonderful – and tracks include the hit "I'm Gonna Miss You", plus "On & On", "Sweeter Than Sugar", "Hope We Have", "Girl I Need You", "You're Wonderful", and "Love Song".

✨✧ Roy AyersVibrations ... LP
Polydor, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact! The record picks up the style begun with the Mystic Voyage album, and pushes it to some slightly tighter territory – a more focused Roy Ayers sound that's totally great, and which makes the album sparkle wonderfully throughout! All aspects of Roy's talents are perfectly balanced here – his warm vocals and jazzy vibes, his uptempo grooves and mellower rhythms – played to perfection by a hip lineup of players that includes Philip Woo on electric piano, Justo Almario on tenor sax, and Steve Cobb on drums. Edwin Birdsong guests a bit on the record – bringing in a nice edge to a few tunes – the album's got a really unique dark undercurrent, even in smoother moments – that subtle Roy Ayers' approach that's always made him one of our all-time favorite artists. Titles include the wonderful jazz-tinged "Searching", a great midtempo stepper that we really love; the funky break track "The Memory", a righteous number that feels like work from earlier records; the clubby classic "One Sweet Love to Remember"; and the sweet instrumental "Vibrations", which has a mellow kickback feel! Other tunes include "Higher", "Domelo (Give It To Me)", "Baby I Need Your Love", and "Better Days". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... LP
Odeon (Brazil), 1966. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion! The album is full of non-stop drums and piano grooves, and it's a mostly uptempo treat all the way through. Milton B tipples his way across the tops of the drums in an amazingly light fashion, yet still manages to kick on the rhythm all the way through. The hard piano sound and Milton B's beats and rhythms made this album a legend – and really cleared the way for so many great bossa albums to come. Amazing! 12 tracks including "Aruanda", "Ora Bolas", "Encanto Triste", and "Improviso", "A Resposta", "A Resposta". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Barge, David Matthews, & Andre DavisStony Island – Original Soundtrack ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), New Copy ... About October 25, 2017
A sweet set of soundtrack funk – from a film named after one of our favorite streets in Chicago! Although the record's got an approach that's perhaps a bit tighter and smoother than anything going down on Stony in the late 70s, it does manage to share a good deal of styles with the Chi-soul scene of the time – thanks to work on the record from Chicagoans Gene Barge, Sonny Seals, and Tennyson Stephens! Many of the tracks on the set have a bad-walking soul approach – one that's kind of a mixture of funky and bluesy – and these are laid out next to some jazzier instrumentals that we like most of all – tunes that have a great funky soundtrack feel, but with a bit more fusion touches than usual, probably because of the work of David Matthews. Titles include "Percy Fired", "Party Lights", "High Speed Posters", "Back To Business", "Chase The Train", "Gangster City", "Dream Ride", and "Peace Of Mind". CD

Pastor TL BarrettLike A Ship (Without A Sail) ... LP
Mt Zion/Numero, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... On November 20, 2017
A soul record we'd put up there with some of our favorite ones that the city of Chicago produced in the early 70s – and it's literally a soul record – a beautiful gospel set by Pastor TL Barrett & The Youth For Christ Choir, of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, on the city's south side! There's genuine spirit and passion in this record to make it an exceptional gospel record, but it's the deep secular soul production touches and instrumentation that makes this one of the true, uh, holy grails of Chicago soul. The album was cut at the affordable Sound Market Studio, but behind the soaring, spirited lead and chorus vocal arrangements are players supervised by Chess Records sax player and arranger Gene Barge – with legendary players Richard Evans and Phil Upchurch in on the recordings. Raw drums, grooving organ, and incredible bass lines lay the foundation, but it's the voices that really shine on this completely wonderful, totally essential set! Includes "Like A Ship", "Wonderful", "It's Me O Lord", "Ever Since", "Nobody Knows", "Joyful Noice", "Medley...Dr. Watts Hymn & The Disciples Prayer" and "Blessed Quietness". LP, Vinyl record album

The first of Basie's excellent Dance Session albums for Verve – no-nonsense albums that really get at the high-grooving side of the group, and which feature the kind of compelling and catchy tunes that always made them a favorite on the dancefloor! The Count manages to play a bit of organ on the session, in the tone that we really like at the time – and arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, Neal Hefti, Johnny Mandel, and Frank Wess – on tracks that include "Straight Life", "Basie Goes Wess", "Cherry Point, "Plymouth Rock", "Peace Pipe", and "Bubbles".

The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". LP, Vinyl record album

Big Youth's first LP, though he's only really featured on about half the tracks. Produced by Prince Buster, who'd almost dropped out of the music scene entirely by this point, it's solid LP, with strong rhythms, and the prototypical Youth style on the mic, plus some nice vocals on a few numbers from Alton Ellis and John Holt. Our favorite track though is a nice instrumental rendition of "Shaft" and we're digging the title track pretty well too. Also includes 'Revolution Rock", "Leggo Beast", "One Day Soon" and 7 more.

Easily one of our favorite DIW piano trio sessions – an album of fluid magic from the mighty Walter Bishop Jr, supported by great rhythm from the team of Peter and Kenny Washington! Kenny Washington's drums are always a delight – playfully lyrical, in a mode that recalls some of the best Billy Higgins work of earlier years – but even better tuned to a pianist like Bishop, who can swing from serious soulful lines one minute – to shorter, sharper, more angular modes the next. Titles include "Una Mas", "Speak No Evil", "Waltz Zweetie", "Crazy She Calls Me", "I'll Remember April", and "What's New". CD

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersArt Blakey & The Jazz Messengers Au Club St. Germain 1958 ... CD
RCA (France), 1958. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
Seminal work from Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers – recorded at a time when that group was really coming together! After a slightly wayward year of 1957, when the Messengers had a different lineup away from Blue Note, Art re-forged the group for the end of the 50s with a rock-solid array of players – including a young Lee Morgan on trumpet and Bobby Timmons on piano, plus Benny Golson on tenor, with a sense of arrangement that really helps give the group some focus – while still letting the solos open up in a live setting like this! All tracks are long, and played with lots of fire – and the kind of amazing open-ended solos that the group could cook up whenever they were working in a live environment. The tracks are great too – as Benny Golson rewrote "Blues March" into "Blues March For Europe No 1", and Bobby Timmons contributed "Moanin With Hazel", a new version of "Moanin". Other titles include Bill Hardman's "Politely", Benny Golson's "Along Came Manon" and "Out Of The Past", Monk's "We Named It Justice", and the perennial Jazz Messenger favorite, "Like Someone In Love", a track that Blakey always manages to make come alive with new energy that you'd never expect! 2CDs, featuring all the tracks from the initial 3 LP series!

Joao BoscoCabeca De Nego ... LP
Barclay (Brazil), 1986. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Beautiful work from Joao Bosco – a bit later than his classic years, but a sublime set all the way through – and one that's overflowing with jazzier influences! Joao's got a sound here that actually seems a bit influenced by the growth in Brazilian jazz at the time – a style that's clear in the humming, almost scatting quality to his vocals – and in the way that his guitar work mixes older folsky styles with tones and colors that ring out with inspiration from the fusion generation – even though they're played on an acoustic instrument. The whole thing's great – spare, personal, but deeply compelling – and with a highly rhythmic component on most numbers. Easily one of our favorite by Bosco – and a real delight throughout! Titles include "Bote Babalu Pra Pular No Pagode", "Joao Balaio", "Da Africa A Sapucai", "Odile Odila", "Joao Do Pulo", and "Quilombo". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieAladdin Sane ... LP
RCA, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
One of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul".
