Deep JazzHeaven & Earth ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. New Copy ... $11.99
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's hardly a simple rehash of Coltrane modes – as all other tunes are originals, and the band delivers them with a core piano trio groove, then adds in flute, tenor, and soprano sax on different tracks! Rhythm is at the heart of the record, and bassist/leader Jerker Kluge really moves the group with a pulsating sound on his instrument – a deep, soulful tone that's matched beautifully by the brightly soaring piano lines of Jo Junghanss. A few cuts feature vocals by Julia Fehenberger, who further deepens the soul of the record – and the whole thing's a massive killer – like finding some lost Saba/MPS gem from the late 60s, with all the European jazz genius you'd expect from such a reference. Titles include "Heaven & Earth", "Naima", "Orange Flower", "Red Smoke", "Starlings Talk", and "Black Tiger". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Heaven & EarthRefuge ... LP
Ovation/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
A beautiful early 70s psych folk set from the angelic vocal and songwriting duo of Pat Gefell and Jo D Andrews – their Refuge album for Ovation in 1973 – highlighted by their gorgeous vocals, but committed with lovely, lightly soaring arrangements! Save for a solid cover of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin penned "Sixty Years On", Gefell and Andrews wrote the songs here, and it's remarkably strong stuff! The duo vocals and harmonies are especially sweet. The Chicago-based production wisely leaves ample space in the arrangements for them to sort of loosely, emotively embellish with their voices – with string arrangements by co-producer George Andrews and an impressive roster of session players including bassist Phil Upchurch, drummer Don Simmons and percussionist Bobby Christian. Includes "Jenny", "Voice In The Wind", "To A Flame", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Refuge", "Song For Craig", "A Light Is Shining", "Feel The Spirit" and more. Heavy vinyl and cover – and features a great insert with notes! LP, Vinyl record album

Heaven 17Penthouse & Pavement ... LP
Virgin, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The boldest face of politics on the dancefloor in the early 80s – a tremendous little debut from Heaven 17, formed out of the ashes of the original lineup of Human League! At a time when the League was going a bit soft and pop, Heaven 17 picked up a stronger social agenda than before – touching on themes of corporate greed, military buildup, and class struggle – all cast within a batch of extremely catchy dancefloor numbers! The musical style is somewhat in the Brit electro pop mode of the period, but often funkier and more creative – a factor that helped the group cross over nicely to a soul market here in the states. Titles include "Soul Warfare", "Play To Win", "Penthouse & Pavement", "Fascist Groove Thing", "Geisha Boys & Temple Girls", "Let's All Make A Bomb", and "The Height Of The Fighting".

Washington PhillipsWhat Are They Doing In Heaven Today? ... LP
Mississippi, 1920s/1930s. New Copy ... $11.99
Very early gospel work from Washington Phillips – a spiritual singer, but one who works in a style that's a lot more blues-based than later proponents of the genre! The style here is relatively spare – mostly just Washington's vocals and a bit of guitar or piano – the latter of which has the small-voiced sound of the instrument in the image on the cover – which leaves a lot more room for the vocals! Phillips inflects most of the lyrics with a definite blues-based sensibility, too – which brings plenty of secular feel to the music – and titles include "Denomination Blues (parts 1 & 2)", "Train Your Child", "Paul & Silas In Jail", "I Was Born To Preach The Gospel", and "What Are They Doing In Heaven Today".

✨✧ Chris BartleySweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven ... LP
Vando, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet soul classic from late 60s Philly – the one and only album recorded by vocalist Chris Bartley – arranged and produced by Van McCoy! The style's really great – with a host of original tunes by Van that follow nicely in the style of Chris' hit title cut, and which show him off to be quite a well-versed singer. We're not sure why he never made it bigger – but possibly he was so eclipsed by the talents of Van it was hard to get out on his own! Includes the hit title cut – "Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven" – plus "Gotta Tell Somebody", "For You", "Sittin Pretty", "Hooked On You", "I'll Be Loving You", and "Sugar Baby".

✨✧ Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence Johnson, who brought the group up from the beginning! The real strength of the album, though, is the group's vocals – wonderfully harmonious, but with a rougher edge and a deeper soul than many other 70s groups of the same type. The album includes the massive semi-hit "Guess Who's Back In Town" – plus other good ballads like "How Do You Think You're Gonna Find Love", "Let's Work It Out", and "Distant Melody". The album also features some uptempo numbers – and other tracks include "Run & Tell That", "Dance A Thon", and "No Limit". LP, Vinyl record album

Average White BandPerson To Person ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Their classic double live set from the mid 70s, and as tight a batch of grooves as you'll find on their studio albums! In fact, this one might even be tighter, as it's got a good set of classic tracks performed live, with a sound that's a little bit more uptight and open than the studio versions– and which is especially freewheeling on the instrumental solos. Many tracks go for a lot longer than on the original versions – and there's a version of "Pick Up The Pieces" that runs for 18 minutes, a version of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" that grooves for 8 minutes, a version of "School Boy Crush" that jams for 7 minutes, plus nice takes on the cuts "Cut The Cake", "Love Your Life", and "Cloudy".

Earl ColemanEarl Coleman & The Latin Love In ... LP
Worthy, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin monster – and one of our favorite albums from the New York scene! The record is the only one we've ever seen from pianist Earl Coleman – and it's a groove-happy fiesta that's every bit Spanish Harlem at its best. Earl's piano is flowing and free, and the band grooves through tracks that dip, turn, and soar like some of the best hard-jamming numbers from Joe Cuba, Ray Barretto, or Joe Bataan from the time. Some tracks feature soulful English vocals, and the titles alone should give you the feel of the set – "Hippy Heaven", "Latin Love-In", "Banana-Loo", and "What You Gonna Do". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CommodoresCommodores ... LP
Motown, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Not The Commodores first album – but a really that really broke them out of the box and exposed the group to a huge new audience! The album hits perfectly on both sides of the group's strengths – the tight ensemble funk on which they were raised, and some of the sweeter aspects that were showing up as Lionel Richie emerged as the solo male singing star – not nearly as cheesy here as in later years, and a surprisingly nice element to offset the heavier funk. Titles include the funky classic "Brick House", the mellow hit "Easy", and the cuts "Squeeze The Fruit", "Zoom", "Funky Situation", "Won't You Come Dance With Me", "Funny Feelings", "Heaven Knows", and "Patch It Up".

✨✧ CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata".

✨✧ Coke EscovedoCoke ... LP
Mercury, 1975. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An incredible fusion of all the greatness that was going on in the Bay Area scene of the 70s – put together by Coke Escovedo – the brother of Pete and Sheila E, former leader of Azteca, and onetime member of Santana! Yet this set sounds like none of that previous work at all – and instead is great grooving soul, infused both with the sophistication of fusion and some of the Latin elements of Escovedo's roots – all produced to perfection by Patrick Gleeson – who most folks know for his own spacey keyboard work with Bennie Maupin and others! The mix of elements going on is really complex, but comes across with effortless ease – one of those rare fusions that could happen at a bigger label when all the right talents were brought together. The record kind of "out-Fantasys" the best of Fantasy Records in the Bay Area at the time – and makes great use of singers Linda and Calvin Tillery, plus the great Harvey Mason on drums. Titles include wonderful covers of Lamont Dozier's "Why Can't We Be Lovers" and Leon Ware's "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" – plus the tracks "What Are You Under", "No One To Depend On", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Make It Sweet".

Juan Garcia's at his best here – gazing into a telescope on the cover, looking at the stars and contemplating his next musical direction. For that, the session leaps into a swinging hi-fi mode that brings the hi-ghest fi-delity to the band's nutty approach to arrangements. Esquivel's definitely swinging on a star here – especially on the cuts "My Blue Heaven", "Spellbound", "Whatchamacalit", "La Ronde", and "Bella Mora". Stereo version, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Frankie Goes To HollywoodWelcome To the Pleasuredome ... LP
ZTT/Island, 1984. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but in the ambitious ZTT mode, sought to expand their sound way past familiar hits, and into a realm of sonic exploration that rivaled that of labelmates Art Of Noise. Don't get us wrong, because the Frankie of this album is still very much in groove-oriented territory – but they also let Horn take over with some more striking tunes that are both longer and shorter than the usual pop track – offsetting the vocal numbers on the record with a rich tapestry of musical backdrops that also more firmly forward the group's social and sexual leanings. The album features surprising covers of "War", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", and "Born To Run" – plus the hits "Relax" and "Two Tribes", and the original numbers "Welcome To the Pleasure Dome", "Krisco Kisses", "The Ballad Of 32", "Wish The Lads Were Here", "Black Night White Light", "The Only Star In Heaven", "The Power Of Love", and "Bang".

Charlotte GainsbourgIRM (with bonus CD) ... LP
Because (France), 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A stunner from Charlotte Gainsbourg – in keeping with her style of crafting a diverse body of avant pop sounds by working with stellar collaborators – this time with producer/composer Beck, and it's her best to date! A few tunes are sung in French and have a kind of dramatic French pop noir vibe that would made Serge proud, a mix of sweet and sultry, lightness and drama. Others have more of a raw and messed up vibe with heavier percussion and more of a leftfield sound, and still others have kind of a freaky folk funk sound with horns, drums and more. She covers a lot of stylistic terrain with equally successful wins all around. It's the mark of a true talent that Charlotte can invite such hugely impacting collaborators onto her albums – Beck and his stable of amazing studio musicians on this album, and previous collaborators from Jarvis Cocker to Air – yet it's her show all the way. Titles include "Master's Hands", "IRM", "Le Chat Du Cafe Des Artistes", "In The End", "Heaven Can Wait", "Vanities", "Time Of The Assassins", "Trick Pony", "Greenwich Mean Time", "La Collectionneuse" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby HayesTubby's Back In Town ... LP
Smash, Early 60s. Very Good ... $38.99
An amazing record by one of England's greatest jazz talents ever! This very rare album was recorded in the US, under the supervision of Roland Kirk – who also plays on the record, along with Walter Bishop Jr, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes. Tubby's tone is fantastic – with all the raw mature cutting solo power that's made his early 60s sessions some of our favorite jazz records ever. Putting him on a record with Kirk was a genius move – as Kirk's approach brings out a nuttiness in Hayes that you don't always get in his otherwise more straight-laced British groups. Titles include "Lady E", "Afternoon In Paris", "I See With My Third I", and "For Heaven's Sake". Nice long tracks, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ivory Joe HunterIvory Joe Hunter – Rock & Roll ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... $28.99
Seminal work from the great Ivory Joe Hunter – an artist who went onto have a huge impact on the development of music well into the 70s, but who doesn't always get his due! Joe's got a really amazing way of weaving together different strands of music – jazz, blues, and R&B – plus a healthy dose of country – which he uses here years before bigger later names like Ray Charles, Brook Benton, and Joe Tex! Hunter's work is completely sublime, and given a great Atlantic punch throughout – a way of fusing these elements together without making anything sound forced at all – still plenty darn fresh all these many years later. Titles include "Since I Met You Baby", "I Want Somebody", "Heaven Came Down To Earth", "I Need You", "That's Why", "I've Got To Learn To Do The Mambo", "You Can't Stop This Rocking & Rolling", "It May Sound Silly", and "That's Why I Dream".

Jose JamesNo Beginning No End ... LP
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99 15.98
A great new chapter in the career of Jose James – and a record that really seems to take his already-amazing vocals to a whole new level! In a relatively short career, Jose's already been turning a lot of heads with his work on other projects, his jazz-based recordings, and his debut for Gilles Peterson's album – yet this Blue Note set may well be his best record to date – and a set that definitely seems to find just the right place for his classic-styled approach to soul music vocals! Backings are mostly live, with a cool small funk group feel – but a bit more laidback too, almost with the jazzy touches you'd hear on some of Gil Scott-Heron's best 70s work, inflected with hipper changes with a 21st Century vibe. The whole thing's great – as important to Blue Note's move into soul as the Robert Glasper Experiment album – and titles include "Vanguard", "Heaven On The Ground", "Come To My Door", "Trouble", "Sword & Gun", and "It's All Over Your Body".

Eddie JeffersonMain Man ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more experimental modes of other Jefferson dates of the 70s, and hits a snapping, swinging style that moves Eddie back to his hippest modes of the 60s. Hampton plays trombone in the group, and other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Richie Cole on alto, Junior Cook on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Harold Mabern on piano and electric piano. Leon Thomas produced the record, and Joyce Lawson guests as the female voice on a remake of "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include a killer version of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" that is probably worth the price of the album alone – and there's also "Benny's From Heaven" and "Freedom Jazz Dance", both of which are great, too – plus "Summertime", "Exactly Like You", and "Night Train".

The feel here is quite different than Riddle's work with Frank Sinatra – a bit less punch in the vocals, as you'd expect from Dean's style of singing – but very strong, and a lot less flowery than some of Martin's other sides.

That great McPhatter rasp is still nicely present, even amidst the strings and fuller backings from Glenn Osser – and even though many of the tunes are standards, the McPhatter touch helps them stay fresh. Titles include "You Belong To Me", "That's My Desire", "What Will I Tell My Heart", "These Foolish Things", "When Did You Leave Heaven", and "Put Your Arms Around Me Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

Vendetta Records, 2015. New Copy ... $23.99
The final entry in the Good Morning Vietnam trilogy from veteran underground rhymer/writer MF Grimm and producer Drasar Monumental – perhaps the rawest and hardest hitting of the three! The smart, dexterous rhymes are laced with wartime imagery and backed by thematic samples throughout, always walking the fineline between hypnotic heaviness and sensory overload. It's a delicate balance – and they make it work strongly once again on this closing entry in the series –always with enough jazzy funk and cracking soul in the beats to keep your heads nodding, even in the heaviest moments. Includes "Birth Of Violence", "Rhymes Against Humanity", "Songs Of The Winter Soldier", "Economics", "One Bullet Away, Two Steps From Home", "Dust To Dust", "Family Birthday", "Harmonics", "Chain Letter", "For Those That Want To Label Us", "Glaciers Of Icex", "Hand Up To Heaven, Feet Firm In Hell" and more.

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements! The language is beyond the reach of our comprehension, but there's a quality to the overall tunes we totally love – very much like some of the coolest, grooviest French or Scandinavian pop of the time – thanks to some very well-placed electric bass, sweet soaring strings, and the occasional Turkish touch to make for a nicely exotic vibe. A few cuts also feature some nice moog, too – which is especially wonderful, and gives things a really spacey quality – and titles include "Yorgun Gozler", "Falci", "Kabahat Seni Sevende", "Dane Dane Benleri", and "Evet Mi Hayir Mi".

One of The Artistics' most beautiful albums for Brunswick – and the one that includes the title song that was perhaps their greatest single! "I Want You To Make My Life Over" is a classic bit of Chicago soul – done at a level that really sums up all the sophisticated changes the city had brought to the music at the start of the 70s – and served up with cool vibes, great vocals, and a heavenly production style that wraps up the harmonies tightly together, and floats them over the top with nary a wrinkle! That cut kicks off the album, and things only just get better and better – on titles that include "Just Another Heartache", "Nothing But Heartaches", and "Trouble Heartache & Pain" (hey, these guys had a lot of heartache!) – plus "Out In The Country", "Sugar Cane", and "What The World Needs Now".

Andy & The Bey SistersRound Midnight (original pressing) ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the rare few records recorded by a young Andy Bey and his sisters! The group was an obscure jazz harmony trio formed by Andy in his earlier years – and it features him on piano, joining with the vocals of his two sisters Salome and Geradine Bey – in a soulful, moody style that's unlike anything else we can think of! Their three heavenly voices are backed by Kenny Burrell's guitar, Milt Hinton's bass, and Osie Johnson's drums, and there's lots of room around the arrangments for the Beys to stretch out and sing beautifully. Includes a haunting arrangment of "Round Midnight", plus "God Bless The Child", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Solitude", and the "Love Medley". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover is great on front – and has some very interesting jazz DJ notes on back.)

Black IvoryBaby, Won't You Change Your Mind ... LP
Today, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Fantastic ballad soul from one of the greatest groups from the east coast 70s scene! Black Ivory may not have scored as big as some of their contemporaries on the charts – but to fans of harmony soul, they'll always be kings, and this record is the sort that forever gave them keys to the kingdom! They're working here with writer/arranger/producer Patrick Adams – back when his main talents were for ballads, not disco – and Adams perfectly crafted a set of songs to bring out the best side of the group's heavenly vocal talents. Includes loads of wonderful ballads, like "Wishful Thinking", "No Ifs, Ands, Or Buts", "It's Time to Say Goodbye", "Time is Love", and "Baby, Won't You Change Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Rondo A La TurkChewing The Fat ... LP
Diable Noir (UK), 1982. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A cool British combo from the post-punk years – but one who were awash in lots of jazz and Latin touches from the 50s! Blue Rondo A La Turk were a bit like some of the August Darnell projects in the US at the same time – contemporary and classic at the same time, with a groove that refines older modes for a younger audience – but still has a hell of a lot more warmth and soul than most of its contemporaries! The music isn't straight Latin, but has a lot of Latin elements in the rhythms – and the vocals have a catchy way of mixing with the percussion and horns – but at a level that's very different than anyone might have done back in the 50s. A great precursor to the acid jazz scene – with a vibe that's somewhere in the territory of Kalimba/Swamp Children – with titles that include "Carioca", "Sarava", "Klactoveesedstein", "Coco", "The Heavens Are Crying", "Change", and a cover of "I Spy For The FBI". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
