✨✧ Freddy RobinsonCarmalita/Stone Stallion ... 7-inch
Liberty, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 funky guitar numbers by Freddie – both with orchestrations by Monk Higgins! "Carmalita" sounds like a lost track from a blacksploitation soundtrack – strings soaring out over superdope conga rhythms, then Freddie's guitar comes in with some chromatic lines that cook the whole thing up even more! "Stone Stallion" continues the approach – and almost sounds even more amazing – piano floating over strings, then plucked out of the air by Freddie's fat funky licks! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have a drillhole and stickers.)

John MayallTen Years Are Gone ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Very groovy work from John Mayall – a double-length set from the early 70s, featuring some great help from American soul jazz musicians! The group here is small, and the lineup features Red Holloway on saxes, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Sugarcane Harris on violin – all in a mode that has plenty of Mayall's familiar blues, but which also takes on some jazzier inflections too! The vibe's a bit like some of Sugarcane's albums of the time – rootsy in the rhythms, but tighter on instrumentation, with an occasional dose of funk – thanks to heavy drums from Keef Hartley, the only UK player who seems to be working on the date besides Mayall. Titles include "California Campground", "Drifting", "Driving Till The Break Of Day", "Don't Hang Me Up", "I Still Care", "Burning Sun", "Sitting Here Thinking", and "Dark Of The Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MitchellBantu Village ... CD
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the funkiest albums ever on Blue Note – a set that mixes the trumpet talents of Blue Mitchell with some killer backings from Monk Higgins – all in a groove that more gritty edges than the best funky soundtracks of the time! Higgins keeps the backings full, but always quite lean – fusing all elements together into a sharp, tight rhythm that steps along with some of the slight African touches you might guess from the title – a groove that's not really that authentic, but which resonates with some of the best inspirations that Hugh Masekela was bringing to American music at the time. And while the album might be an attempt to cash in on Masekela's groove, the feel here is really quite different overall – as tracks are nicely stretched out, with plenty of room for jazzy solo work – and a groove that's much harder overall, thanks to Higgins! Other players include Freddy Robinson on guitar, Wilton Felder on bass, Paul Humphrey on drums, and Plas Johnson on tenor – and titles include "HNIC", "Flat Backing", "Na Ta Ka", "Bantu Village", and "Blue Dashiki".

✨✧ Blue MitchellBlue's Blues ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Sweet soulful work from trumpeter Blue Mitchell – a set that has him working with a slightly large group of players, but in a style that's always very much in the groove! There's a nice electric undercurrent to the record throughout – sometimes in the instrumentation from other players, sometimes in the overall way the grooves are put together – which gives the record a quality that's almost like a funky soundtrack at the best moments! The lineup is a bit weird, too – with Joe Sample on keyboards, Freddy Robinson on guitar, Herman Riley on tenor and flute, and even John Mayall on harmonica – playing with a vamping funky edge on a few tunes! The title track – "Blues Blues" – is a great little jazzy break number, and other tracks include "Granite & Concrete", "Casa Blues", and "I Didn't Ask To Be". CD

Night Blooming JazzmenNight Blooming Jazzmen ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA".

Stanley TurrentineFlipped ... LP
Canyon, 1970. Very Good ... $2.99
A lost bit of Stanley Turrentine funky work – recorded between his years at Blue Note and his time at CTI, and nearly lost to the pages of history! Despite the obscurity, though, the album's a great one – done with these short stomping sort of arrangements that remind us a lot of the work on Blue Mitchell's Bantu Village album, or the style used on some of the Dizzy Gillespie funk sides for Perception! (And honestly, we think there's a lot of Monk Higgins' influence on the set, even though he doesn't seem to be credited.) The group's ultra-hip – with Freddy Robinson on guitar, Wilton Felder on bass, Paul Humphrey on drums, Victor Feldman on vibes, and King Errison on congas – and tracks are short, soulful, and very much to the point! The groove is really surprising – but tremendous – and is as essential to fans of funk as it is to those of Stanley's other work. 5 numbers in all: "Flipped", "I'm The One", "Toe Hold", "I Only Get This Feeling" and "Flipped Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Maxine WeldonChilly Wind ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
Fully righteous work from singer Maxine Weldon – working here with bigger backings from Ernie Wilkins that mix in a bit of blues, soul, and funk! The style's never too polished, and almost has a similar feel to some of Esther Phillips' work on the Kudu label during the early 70s – soulful vocals at the lead, backed by some hip jazz and electric instrumentation from players who include Blue Mitchell and Bobby Bryant on trumpet, Hadley Caliman and Ernie Watts on tenor and flute, George Bohannon on trombone, and Freddy Robinson on guitar. Titles include "Don't Make Promises", "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye", "Country Son", "I'll Remember Today", "Fire & Rain", "I Who Have Nothing", and "Ain't Got Nobody". CD

World Pacific, 1960s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
