Terry CallierFire On Ice ... CD
Elektra/DBK Works, 1978. New Copy ... $15.99 17.99
One of the great albums from Terry Callier's "second chapter" on record – a time when he was working for Elektra Records, and doing work that was a bit straighter soul than before – and also slightly jazzy as well! The record's kind of a mix of jazzy grooves and smoother soul – typical for the fusion division of Elektra at the time, where Callier's hard-to-peg work was relegated. There's some really great songs on the record – and although the arrangements sometimes lack the sensitivity of the Cadet scorings of earlier years, they're still pretty great from a modern soul perspective. Richard Evans is producing and arranging the session, and Terry's still got help from a lot of Chicago friends like Minnie Riperton, Eddie Harris, and Phil Upchurch – all of whom help to keep the album relatively strong. Titles include some really nice originals, like "African Violet" and "Butterfly", both of which are some of Terry's best compositions from the time – plus "Love Two Love", "Martin St Martin", "Street Fever", and "Be A Believer".

Joe Sample & Lalah HathawaySong Lives On ... CD
GRP, 1999. Used ... $4.99
A wonderful collaboration between vocalist Lalah Hathaway and keyboardist Joe Sample – one of Lalah's few sessions from this under-recorded point in her career – and a set that's quit different than the straighter soul of her earlier music! Sample's warm tones really bring out a lot in Hathaway's vocals – a jazzy color that deepens the record a lot more than you'd expect from Lalah, and which at times almost takes us back to territory of her famous father Donny! Joe plays both acoustic and electric keys on the record, and other players include Kirk Whalum on saxes and Lenny Castro on percussion. Lalah doesn't sing on every track, but with a lineup like that we're also happy to dig the instrumentals – and titles include "One Day I'll Fly Away", "Living In Blue", "Bitter Sweet", "For All We Know", "A Long Way From Home", "Street Life", "Fever", and "The Song Lives On".

✨✧ Kenny Claiborne & The Armed GangKenny Claiborne & The Armed Gang ... LP
Espacial (Spain), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kenny Claiborne's the singer, but the record's clearly got plenty of help from The Armed Gang – a small group that may well just be the Italian producer Sangy, who brings all sorts of sweet electro soul elements to the mix! The album's got more of an NYC streetsoul vibe than some of the other Italian work of the time – almost like Sangy was hitting the city and catching some late night radio shows – then running back to Italy to work with Kenny to craft a really well-balanced soul record that's quite different than some of the more throwaway Italo club tracks of the tune! Make no mistake, the record's got plenty of tracks that would work well in the club – tunes with a midtempo groove, and plenty of basslines and beats – but the whole album is balanced out nicely, amidst tracks that include "Sexy Night", "For You My Girl", "Say Yeah", "Are You Ready", "You", "Hey Girl", and "Funky Fever".
