Galt MacDermot with Seldon PowellSolo Genius Of Seldon Powell ... CD
Kilmarnock, 1970s. New Copy ... $4.99
Solo genius is right – as saxophonist Seldon Powell was a key member of so many different groups, always doing a great job in the ensemble – but when he got a chance to solo, he'd really take off and give us something special! This set focuses on all the great moments when Powell was able to contribute a solo to the music of Galt MacDermot – either his indie soundtracks in the post-Hair years, or some of the jazz performances of his New Pulse Jazz Band – of which Powell was a key part, along with drummer Bernard Purdie! Most of these tracks are from the 70s, and some are from MacDermot records that haven't been on CD – a mixture of instrumental numbers with some vocal tracks that feature work by Salome Bey and Nell Carter. Titles include "Crescent City Cry", "Dreams In Her Eyes", "Suzie Moon", "Instant Amor", "Dude All Dude", "Lord Above", "O Little Red Bird", "La Lucha", "The Sun Always Shines For The Cool", and "Pears & Apples".

✨✧ Nell Carter with Galt MacDermotNell Carter Sings The Gospel – Take This Bread – A Mass In Our Time ... CD
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little record that's way way more than you'd even expect from the title – an early 70s collaboration between arranger Galt MacDermot and singer Nell Carter on a project of all original material with a very soulful vibe! The set isn't gospel tunes sung by a soul artist – and instead features these cool, complicated grooves that have all the best MacDermot touches that we love in his best soundtracks – played by Galt on piano with Bernard Purdie on drums, Seldon Powell on tenor, and Bad Bascomb on bass – a mighty tight combo who make the whole thing groove a lot more than you'd expect! And Nell Carter isn't the only singer, either – as the record also features a lot of work by Salome Bey, of Andy & The Bey Sisters fame – as well as the Howard Roberts Chorale, who were really getting righteous at this time. Many titles are short, and the whole thing works together beautifully as kind of a single piece – with titles that include "Cleaning Me With Fire", "May God Care", "Strange Gods", "Self From Self", "Up To The Altar", "In The Name Of The Father", "Sanctus", and "Out Of The Depths".
