✨✧ John Coltrane & Wilbur HardenGold Coast ... LP
Savoy, 1958/1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Incredible stuff from Coltrane – and some of his first really exciting work! The record features sides that Coltrane cut in a sextet with trumpeter Wilbur Harden in 1958 – a group that was really committed to opening up modal frontiers in jazz, and hitting a groove that was a bit more spiritual than some of the other hardbop material on the market. The rest of the players include Curtis Fuller, Tommy Flanagan, Ali Jackson, and Art Taylor – and the set features 4 tracks, 2 of which never came out during the 50s! Titles include "Tanganyika Strut", "Gold Coast", "Dial Africa", and "BJ". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Chet BakerChet Baker & Strings ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chet's only session for Columbia, arranged in conjunction with the Pacific Jazz label – which seems strange for some reason, because Baker hardly needed to move to a big label, given his success on the LA indie scene. Still, Richard Bock and the Pacific Jazz crew are firmly in place here – and despite the presence of added strings, players like Zoot Sims, Russ Freeman, and Bud Shank keep a nice west coast groove that fits well with Baker's breathy trumpet. Titles include "Love", "The Wind", "A Little Duet", and "Trickleydidlier". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red & gold label pressing. Cover has heavy wear, aging and some tape over splitting seams.)
Also available Chet Baker & Strings ... CD 4.99

✨✧ IasosInter-Dimensional Music ... LP
Unity, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bizarre home made electronics from the enigmatic Iasos – an artist who later went onto a bit of fame in the new age, but who's working here in a trippier, spacier, almost psychedelic mode! The style is often quite personal, and almost naive – as Iasos works on guitar, keyboards, amplified flute, and other odd tape and studio effects – all flowing out with a style that's often a bit cosmic, and which could work well as some of the shorter link tracks on an early 70s Impulse album. Tunes are often relatively short, and titles include "Libra Sunrise", "Lueena Coast", "Lagoon Night", "Siren Shallows", "Aries", "Angel Play", "The Bubble Massage", and "Maha-Splendor". LP, Vinyl record album
(Magenta & pale blue "Yin Yang" label pressing, In the gold foil cover. Cover has a 6 inch split in the top seam.)

✨✧ Roger (Roger Troutman)Many Facets Of Roger ... LP
Warner, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
There's many facets of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky! From this vantage point, all we can think of is that Roger Troutman must have had some sort of crystal ball to see into the hip hop sampling future – either that, or he was busy cooking up west coast gangster funk drones in some secret So Cal laboratory! Whatever the case, though, the record's a classic in the Troutman/Zapp catalog – and features a sparkling west coast take on electro – offered up with lots of popping basslines, snapping electric kickdrums, and a truckfull of vocoder! There's also some pretty nice guitar in the mix – especially on the good jazzy groover "Chunk Of Sugar", which sounds like it's from a completely different record. Other tracks include "Maxx Axe", "Do It Roger", "So Ruff, So Tuff", and "Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a gold promo stamp.)

✨✧ Touch Of ClassI'm In Heaven ... LP
Midland, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer little soul group who recorded with John "Monster" Davis in the mid 70s – really soaring with a groove that rivals some of their bigger contemporaries on the east coast group scene! Touch Of Class sing in a style that's sometimes fragile, but often more suited to the soaring grooves that Davis gives them on the album – a mode that's partly disco, partly pop, and which should have been as huge as any of their Philly or New York contemporaries. There's a "slightly different" feel to the record that we really like – and tracks include "I Just Can't Say Goodbye", "I'm In Heaven", "You Got Nowhere To Come", "One Half As Much", and "I Love You Pretty Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a gold promo stamp.)

MastersoundsSwinging With The Mastersounds ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Buddy and Monk Montgomery (Wes' brothers) play vibes and bass in this groovy instrumental combo that also includes Richie Crabtree on piano and Bennie Barth on drums. The tracks are nothing special, but they are nicely light and groovy, with some good vibes-heavy moments. Titles include "Golden Earrings", "There Is No Greater Love", and "West Coast Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red vinyl pressing. Vinyl and cover are great!)

✨✧ CoastersTheir Greatest Recordings – The Early Years ... LP
Atco, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sure, they were hitmakers – but we love these guys, and find them to be one of the most radical vocal groups of all time! Under the impeccable guidance of Lieber & Stoller, the group recorded some of the fiercest vocal numbers of the 50s – mixing incredibly soulful vocals with an almost cartoonish ability to conjure up little pictures with words. This "best of" set includes some of the more famous numbers, plus great little gems like "Shoppin For Clothes", "Along Came Jones", "Down In Mexico", "Idol With The Golden Head", and "Turtle Dovin".

✨✧ OpaGolden Wings ... LP
Milestone, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of lost Brazilian fusion Hugo and Jorge Fattoruso, produced by Airto Moriera! Opa recorded Golden Wings in the Fantasy studios with that sweet west coast vibe that the best albums of the label had at the time. Spacey keyboards and drums drive the sound brilliantly here, with bits of funk and sweet fusiony soundscapes. Hermeto Pascoal plays flute on a couple of numbers and Airto guest on a number of tracks, too! Titles include "Golden Wings", "Groove", the suite "Pieces: Tombo/La Escuela/Tombo/The Last Goodbye", "Corre Nina" and "African Bird". Nice stuff, and a band that always gets overlooked! LP, Vinyl record album
(Radio station copy, with some peeled spots and masking tape along the seams.)

✨✧ VariousBeach Beat Vol 2 ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Remember Beach music? Once upon a time we might have argued that was a more contemporary term for an older genre, like northern soul, but this mighty fine collection from the late 60s on Atlantic shows you the sound's been around for quite some time! A great soundtrack for the beach from the Carolina scene – sweetly loping grooves that got heavy play at summer resorts on the southern shores of the Atlantic! While not all the groups originated in the south, the music's gained a special place in the hearts of folks in the Carolinas, who've come to consider the music their own because of it's slightly stepping beat and gentle kind of groove! A dozen numbers in all, including "Searching For My Love" by Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces, "Teasin' You" by Willie Tee, "Hello Stranger" by Barbara Lewis, "Fat Boy" by Billy Stewart, "Memphis Soul Stew" by King Curtis, "May I" by Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, "Across The Street" by Lenny O'Henry, "Without Love (There Is Nothing)" by Clyde McPhatter, "Idol With The Golden Hand" by the Coasters, "The Entertainer" by Tony Clarke, "Nip Sip" by the Clovers, and "I (Who Have Nothing)" by Ben E King. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, split seams held with tape, and a mostly split spine.)

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinSweet Smell Of Success ... LP
Decca, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
The full orchestral version of the Sweet Smell Of Success soundtrack – but done in a style that's almost as jazzy and swinging as the small combo one! Elmer Bernstein's at the helm here – and the music's a wonderful pastiche of modes that's right up there with his sublime score for The Man With The Golden Arm – done in a similar blend of driving jazz, somber moments, and some slightly more raucous touches! As with that album, the players are all great – and soloists on the album include Pete Candoli, Ted Nash, and Shelly Manne – west coast players despite the New York setting of the film, and playing here with a fair bit of grit in their groove. Titles include "The Street", "Hot Dogs & Juice", "Toots Shor's Blues", "Nite Spot Rock", "Love Scene", and "Out Of Darkness". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Decca pressing.)

✨✧ Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
An insane record – simply insane! Mel Torme wrote the California Suite as a tribute to his home state during the glorious postwar years of growth and boom – and it contains some of the weirdest songs he ever sung! At the base, the work is driven by the same west coast jazz arrangements by Marty Paich that you'll find on some of Mel's other Bethlehem albums – but the songs can be incredibly goofy, rhyming towns in CA with catchy words and phrases, pairing Marines in San Diego with wealthy old widows, and leveling San Francisco with one of the worst puns on "Golden Gate" that we've ever heard! Still, the album's an essential one if you're a fan of Mel Torme – not only because it's got some wonderful vocals in the best parts, but also because it's a true reflection of his deep commitment to pushing the boundaries of jazz music. Tracks include "West Coast Is The Best Coast", "They Go To San Diego", "LA", and "Poor Little Extra Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)
