BlackbyrdsBlackbyrds ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound that was different from many of their contemporaries, and which pushed funk and soul into a whole new level. Byrd's work with the band was as groundbreaking as Larry Mizell's work on his own Blue Note albums – and coincidentally, Larry Mizzell's Sky High Productions handles the studio chores for the set – but in a way that's much more sharply funky than his albums with Byrd! Titles include the tight choppy funk tracks "Do It, Fluid" and "Funky Junkie", plus other nice groovers like "Summer Love", "Gut Level", and "The Runaway". LP, Vinyl record album

Mary LoveLay This Burden Down – The Very Best Of Mary Love ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $9.99
An amazing journey in soul music – told not just in the music, but in the detailed notes of the set as well! Mary Love is a singer who never broke big, but who cut some wonderful records on the LA scene of the 60s and 70s – a range of work that rivals some of the better-known female soul work from Detroit or Philly at the time! Mary's got a gut-wrenching vocal style that comes through right away – set up initially with these upbeat, uptempo grooves for the set's first half of Modern Records sessions – then holding strong through a batch of material for other labels that include Josie, Elco, Generation, and Modern Disc. Most material here is in a Northern Soul vein, and a few of the later cuts have a more modern soul vibe – all to match the shift in Mary's tragic life, as told in the notes within. Titles include "Joy", "I'm In Your Hands", "You Turned My Bitter Into Sweet", "Hey Stoney Face", "Think It Over", "Move A Little Closer", "Is That You", "Talkin About My Man", "There's Someone For Me", and "Power Of Your Love".

✨✧ BlackbyrdsNight Grooves ... LP
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album of funky dancefloor tunes! Originally issued in 1978, and clearly for the New York dancefloor crowd – the record takes the earlier work of funk group The Blackbyrds, and remixes the tracks slightly to pump up the groove a bit for the dancers. While the approach might not sound good on paper, it actually works wonderfully on the record – as the tunes retain all of the jazz funk feel of the originals, without any of the cheap tricks you might expect. The album's as essential as any of the group's earlier albums – and it's filled with great versions of classics like "Supernatural Feeling", "Gut Level", "Walking In Rhythm", "Do It Fluid", "Rock Creek Park", and "Happy Music".

✨✧ BlackbyrdsWalking In Rhythm – The Essential Selection 1973 to 1980 ... CD
Fantasy/Decision, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Some of the sharpest, jazziest funk you'll ever hope to hear – a smoking collection of the legendary 70s work by The Blackbyrds on Fantasy Records! The group started as a jazz combo under Donald Byrd's supervision – right at a time when Byrd was making his own fantastic funky records in the 70s – but working for the Bay Area Fantasy label, they really took off into an amazing groove that was all their own – still informed by jazz, but free to open up to lots of funk and soul elements too – sometimes with vocals in the lead, sometimes more focus on the kinds of solos that always set them apart from all their contemporaries! The cuts have some wonderful keyboard work from a young Kevin Toney – who's gone onto a lot of fame over the years – and production on all cuts is either by Larry Mizell, Donald Byrd, or George Duke – key 70s jazz funk forces who keep things mighty tight in the studio! The package features work from all Blackbyrds albums of the 70s – including the Cornbread Earl & Me soundtrack, and the Night Grooves remix set – and the package features 25 titles that include "Enter In", "Party Land", "Do It Fluid", "Gut Level", "Summer Love", "I Need You", "The Baby", "Blackbyrds' Theme", "City Life", "Rock Creek Park", "Walking In Rhythm", "A Hot Day Today", "Wilford's Gone", "One Gun Salute", "Supernatural Feeling", "Mysterious Vibes", and "Soft & Easy".

Pepper Adams & Jimmy KnepperPepper-Knepper Quintet ... LP
Metrojazz, Late 50s. Good+ ... $24.99
A gem of a session from both players – and one of the long-lost sides on the short-lived Metrojazz label from MGM! Adams and Knepper head up a soulful group that features Wynton Kelly on piano (and a bit of organ!), Doug Watkins on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The real charm, though, is from Adams' solos, which are in that perfect gutbuckety mode that he could hit when he wanted to – a deep, dark drink the best tone the bari could offer, never getting clumsy at all, thanks to some lively rhythm playing. Titles include "Minor Catastrophe", "Riverside Drive", "Primrose Path", and "Adams In The Apple". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – with deep groove! Cover has some wear, aging, and old tape over some splitting seams.)

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
Heavy duty hardbop – and one of three amazing Epic sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! The set grooves as massively as his One and Two Feet In The Gutter albums – and is recorded with a similar lineup that includes Horace Parlan on piano, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Charlie Rouse on tenor, and Clark Terry on trumpet. Dave's drumming is mighty and soulful, and the set smokes with a lively rolling groove that mixes hardbop and soul jazz into a raw early 60s sound! Includes the 17 minute long jam "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterJungle Jazz ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Savage stuff! This is one of Les Baxter's greatest albums ever – and it's right on a par with African Jazz, which uses a similar formula: Plas Johnson's up front playing gutsy tenor, and Les is behind, working a large group of exotica players into a tribal frenzy of mellow grooves. Titles include "Amazon Falls", "Coco", "Isle Of Cuba", "Jungla Brava", "Go Chango", and "Blue Jungle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has some seam splitting.)

Walter BentonOut Of This World ... LP
Jazzland, 1960. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the few sessions ever recorded by tenor player Walter Benton – a great talent with a very strong voice, coming out of a gutsier 50s era, and growing into a capable hardbop player by the time of this set. The album's got Benton playing in a quintet that features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and either Jimmy Cobb or Albert Heath on drums – and although the group's clearly not Benton's working unit, the overall sound of the record is quite strong, with very capable rhythm playing, and some nicely arcing solos with spirit and surprising touches. Titles include "Iris", "Night Movement", "A Blues Mood", "Azil", and "Walter's Altar". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Jazzland pressing, with deep groove. Cover has splitting on most seams, but is still decent overall.)

Big MaybelleI've Got A Feelin' – Okeh & Savoy Recordings 1952 to 1956 ... CD
Okeh/Rev-Ola (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $8.99
A great overview of the important early years of Big Maybelle – work that's probably still some of her best-remembered, all done in a gutsy, soulful style that's every bit as wonderful as 50s R&B on Atlantic from Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker! The package brings together both Maybelle's work for Savoy and Okeh – and in doing so, covers all of her key sides of the mid 50s – some of which are oft-remembered hits, others of which are lesser-known, but even better – in that slightly off-center way that can make obscure R&B still sound great after the passage of many years. CD features 28 titles in all – including the classics "Gabbin Blues" and "Candy" – plus "Ain't No Use", "I'm Getting Long Alright", "You Never Know", "Maybelle's Blues", "Such A Cutie", "So Good To My Baby", "That's A Pretty Good Love", "Ring Dang Dilly", "Pitiful", and "I Don't Want To Cry".

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsUptight ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A wonderful soundtrack from Booker T & The MGs – a record that's probably much better remembered than the film for which it was written! The tunes show a whole new depth for the group – a style that still has some of the charm of their previous hits, but which also takes off in whole new directions too. Some tunes are pretty darn catchy, and others have a nicely bubbling sound – almost jazzy in parts, with a great scene-setting feel for the movie. Booker actually sings on 2 tracks – "Johnny I Love You" and "Blues In The Gutter" – and Judy Clay sings on "Children Don't Get Weary". Other than that, though, the whole thing's instrumental – with titles that include the megahit "Time Is Tight", plus "Cleveland Now", "Down At Ralph's Joint", and "Tank's Lament".

Danny BrownOld ... CD
Fool's Gold, 2013. New Copy ... $7.99 14.98
Danny Brown steps up his game on Old – delivering on all the promise of his much-hailed previous Fool's Gold LP – and actually topping it! Danny's XXX was a mix of next-level smarts and production, balanced with knowlingly gutter dwelling rhymes – but this one is knowingly more "mature" on the vocal tip, to a degree – but don't worry, it's still Danny Brown! Once again, the production is brilliant – but with better pacing throughout, making this one of the stronger hip hop full lengths of '13. Includes production by Paul White, Rustie, SKYWLKR, A-Trak and others. Includes "(Old)", "The Return" with Freddie Gibbs, "Wonderbread", "Gremlins", "Torture", "Lonely", "Clean Up", "Red 2 Go", "Dubstep" feat Scrufizzer, "Dip", "Kush Coma" with A$ap Rocky & Zelooperz, "Smokin & Drinkin", "Break It (Go)", "Way Up Here" feat Ab-Soul, "Float On" feat Charli XCX and more.

Ray Bryant TrioRay Bryant Trio/Dancing The Big Twist ... CD
Columbia/Collectables, 1956/1962. Used ... $16.99
2 of Ray's early albums for Columbia – back to back on one CD! Ray Bryant Trio is Ray's first full LP, recorded shortly after his initial session with Betty Carter, which was also issued by Epic. The album's got Ray grooving in a hard early soul jazz mode – working in a trio with either Kenny Clarke or Osie Johnson on drums, and Wyatt Reuther on bass. Candido joins in on congas on 2 of the album's best tracks – a hard grooving take on "Night In Tunisia", plus Ray's classic "Cubano Chant", a dancing Latin groover that went onto become an oft-recorded Latin Jazz standard. Other titles include "Pawn Ticket", "Philadelphia Bound", and "Off Shore". Dancing The Big Twist was recorded as a follow-up to Ray's Madison Time album – one that has Columbia Records letting him loose on another dance craze – the twist! The set has none of the hoke of a Chubby Checker record, though – and instead, it's one of Ray's best soul jazz sides of the 60s, an excellent sextet session that's done with a gutbuckety groove, and which really sparkles thanks to some tight horn work by Joe Newman, Buddy Tate, and Matthew Gee. Ray's heavy left hand grooves really jump the whole set up nicely – and titles include "Big Susie", "Twist On", "Twist City", "Twistin On A Cat's Paw", and "Do That Twist". CD

CharmeLet It In ... LP
RCA, 1979. Very Good ... $11.99
An obscure bit of clubby work from the end of the 70s – at first glance, kind of an uptight disco session, but as things go on, a record with some really nice moments! The vocals are actually pretty good, and pretty soulful overall – with leads by Vivian Cherry, Gwen Guthrie, Janet Wright, and other sings who make the sound of the album actually come across well – and Luther's in the chorus on one track, but seems to bubble out to the lead a bit stronger than the notes (and his other contracts) might make you expect! The album's got a long, building groover called "Georgy Porgy" that really really soars – a sweet little disco tune with a heck of a lot of soul, and a really solid Luther-esque approach! Other nice ones include the snapping "Do It For Love" and "Let's Let Love" – and other tracks include "Let It In", "Never", and "It Discos To Show Ya". LP, Vinyl record album

Arnett CobbSmooth Sailing ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the few Cobb sides for Prestige to feature an organist, in this case the obscure player Austin Mitchell. The record's got a pretty deep gutbuckety groove, thanks to trombonist Buster Cooper, the other main soloist on the album. Cobb's rich Texas tenor is firmly in place – and titles include "Blues Around Dusk", "Smooth Sailing", "Let's Split", and "Cobb's Mob". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw DavisLock The Fox ... LP
RCA, 1966. Sealed ... $11.99
A great little album from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – much leaner and meaner than some of his Prestige blowing sessions from earlier years – and recorded with a focused sound that we really love! The group's an excellent one – a sextet that features Les Spann on guitar, Ross Tompkins on piano, and Ray Barretto on congas – really kicking up an extra groove underneath! But the real star of the set is Davis – blowing here with a soulful head-on style that's totally great – cutting through the tunes with effortless ease, and playing in a gutbuckety tone that grabs us right away, without any of the hoke that he could sometimes have. Wonderful throughout – and tracks include "Oh Gee", "West Coast Blues", "On A Clear Day", "Nina Never Knew", "Save Your Love For Me", and "The Good Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original sealed 60s pressing!)

Griff and Lock are playing head to head here – right in their classic "tuff tenors" mode, although not recorded Live at Mintons! Rhythm is by Norman Simmons, Vic Sproles, and Ben Riley – and the album's actually a bit gutsier and more freewheeling than some of their earlier sets, the ones with a bit more Monk work. Titles include "What's Happening?", "63rd Street Theme", "Pull My Coat", and "Hey Jim!". LP, Vinyl record album

Checker/Sundazed, 1958. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Fantastically twangy! We never tire of Bo Diddley's incredible guitar work – and you'll get plenty of it in this early album he cut for Chess, a tasty batch of 12 tracks, all original tunes with a stripped-down gutbuckety sound – rough, raw rhythms that feature plenty of Bo's gritty guitar over the top! The cover's got a picture of Bo holding a conventional hollow-body – nice and echoey, and a bit different than his later trademark square guitar – but the sound is still loud and proud throughout. Titles include "Bo Diddley", "I'm A Man", "Hey Bo Diddley", "Bring It To Jerome", "Say Bossman", "Diddley Daddy", "Hush Your Mouth", and "Who Do You Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Bureau B (Germany), 1981. New Copy ... $10.99
The album's got a classical-styled cover image, but the work is plenty modern within – some great electronic grooves from the best years of the German new wave! Die Partei are a duo we'd rank right up there with Pyrolator and Der Plan – easily as playful as both of those great acts, and graced with a talent for taking the simplest of analogue electric sounds, and really making them sound fresh and groovy! There's no darkness at all in the music – just these cool rhythmic passages that mix beats and keyboards in a way that's very different from US or UK material of the time – never overblown, never too moody – just simple, tuneful, and still wonderful after all these years. Titles include "Ostafrika", "Guten Morgen In Koln", "Rote Schuhe", "Allerheiligen", "Nord Sud Fahrt", "Wo Sind Sie", and "Austauschprogramm". CD

Bill's got his groove on right for this set – quite possibly one of the greatest of his early King years, thanks to killer work from Billy Butler on guitar, Shep Shepherd on drums, and the great Clifford Scott on alto and tenor sax! Scott's raspy tone really makes these tunes groove – setting up a nice counterpoint with Doggett's fuller sound on organ, and cutting through the overall sound of the set with a gutsiness that we totally love. Titles include "Soft", "Ding Dong", "Chloe", "Hot Ginger", "King Bee", "Shindig", and "Hammer Head". LP, Vinyl record album

A really great little record – an overlooked gem from the jazzier side of the TK Records universe in the 70s – put together with loads of cool changes and warm instrumental elements! William Eaton's vocals are wonderful – kind of crackly and personal, and a great complement to the tight jazzy instrumentation of the record – produced by Ralph MacDonald, who works with Eaton to give the record some of the cool complicated elements of his own records of the time. There's loads of great musicians on the date – saxes from Michael Brecker and Tom Scott, trumpet from Randy Brecker, and guitar from Eric Gale – and the set's also got some guest vocal moments, these cool kind of "characters" that appear in songs – provided by Gwen Guthrie, Yolanda McCullough, Zachary Sanders, Vivian Cherry, and others. Titles include "Conjure Woman", "Just Can't Turn Down", "Brand New Lover", "Time & Love", and "Struggle Buggy". LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy FlanaganTommy Flanagan Trio & Sextet (aka Bash) ... LP
Jazztime/Onyx, 1961. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A different version of the album Bash – recorded for the Jazztime label in 1961, with leadership by Dave Bailey – a set that's filled with fire, soul, and imagination – recorded as part of the drummer's amazing (and amazingly short) early 60s run as a leader! The date smokes with the same sort of energy as Dave's great "Gutter" albums for Epic – a groove that's part Blue Note, part Prestige, and carried off with so much precision, we wonder why Bailey never recorded more as a leader. Players are all wonderful – Kenny Dorham's on trumpet, Curtis Fuller's on trombone, Frank Haynes is on tenor, and Tommy Flanagan's on piano. Ben Tucker provides excellent basswork, and proves that him and Bailey were one of the best hardbop rhythm teams ever! Cuts include "Grand Street", "Osmosis", "Soul Support", and "An Oscar For Oscar". 7 tracks in all – including some that haven't been on other versions of this session. Other titles include "Just Friends", "Like Someone In Love", and "BMT Express". LP, Vinyl record album

Gutsy tenor work from Jimmy Forrest – a player who was poised to rival Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons at the start of the 60s, and who could have easily done so, given the strength of his work for Prestige! The record's one of a few that the St Louis player got to cut for the label – and it's a tightly-crafted combo effort that features Hugh Lawson on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Clarendon Johnson on drums – plus a bit of added conga from Ray Barretto, bringing in that extra "kick" that pushed off other great soul jazz sessions from the time! Tracks are short, and have a good focus on Forrest's wonderful tone – and titles include "Sonny Boy", "Annie Laurie", "I Love You", "Most Much", "Soft Winds", "Matilda", and "Autumn Leaves". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis FullerSouth American Cookin' ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1961. Used ... $14.99
Not Curtis Fuller in South America, but a record that picks up a very slight Latin vibe in the rhythm – which makes for a nice change from Fuller's sessions for Blue Note! The date was recorded during that great short run of soul jazz cookers on early 60s Epic Records – and is a perfect talent for the well-voiced solo talents of Fuller – which really take great fire in a group that also includes Zoot Sims on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Dave Bailey on drums. The record's got some of the gutbuckety energy of Bailey's classic sets for Epic at the same time – a strong recommendation from us – and titles include "One Note Samba", "Besame Mucho", and "Wee Dot". CD
