✨✧ House ShoesGift Vol 7 – House Shoes & Street Corner Music Present – House Shoes (limited edition) ... LP
Street Corner, 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lucky number 7 in the House Shoes Presents The Gift series – in which the gifted producer curates/provides a couple sides of wax for some genuinely worthwhile, heretofore lesser-known talents to do their thing – but this one festuers a collection of strong instrumentals by the man himself! It's really good stuff – with instrumentals he cut as far back as the late 90s, onward to the early teens – for MCs as diverse as Elzhi, Proof, Danny Brown, Quelle Chris and others.

Lightnin HopkinsShootin Fire – April 11, 1969 ... CD
Cicadelic, 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
Previously-unreleased material from the mighty Lightnin Hopkins – recorded in Texas at the end of the 60s, and with a quality level that's right up there with Hopkins' best rootsy albums of the 60s! Things are stripped-down, but never sloppy at all – and there's a surprisingly top-shelf quality to the material, as Lightnin charms us right away with his seductive acoustic guitar lines, and almost conversational style of singing – an approach that gives the whole thing a surprisingly intimate feel, one that's only augmented by the strength of the production. Titles include "Rainy Day In Houston", "My Little Darling", "Shake That Thing", "Old House Torn Down", "Movin On Out", "Shinin Moon", "Stinking Foot", and "My Baby Ain't Got No Shoes". 20 tracks in all – 77 minutes of music!

✨✧ Walter BishopHot House ... LP
Muse, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Walter Bishop takes a trip back to his bop roots with this one – working in trio and quintet formation, and running through a host of mostly older bop standards! The quintet tracks are our favorites – as it's not often we hear Bishop in this stretch with a group larger than a trio – and the presence of Bill Harman and Junior Cook on trumpet and tenor, respectively, fleshes out the record with a nicely soulful sound. The rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Al Foster on drums – who also play on the trio tracks – and titles include "Dahoud", "Move", "My Little Suede Shoes", "All God's Children", and "Hot House".

Tubby HayesLittle Giant (4CD set) ... CD
Proper (UK), 1950s. Used 4 CDs ... $9.99
An amazing look at the early career of British tenor saxophonist Tubby Hayes – easily one of the greatest players on his instrument on the other side of the Atlantic – and a player we'd rank right up there with Sonny Rollins or Coleman Hawkins at their best! On these early sides from the 50s, Hayes has a wonderfully deep, round tone – a near-perfect quality that few of his countrymen, and a good deal of ours, could never hope to match! But even more than that is his strong sense of creativity, even in a short solo space – an ability to blow out brilliance with each new note, and hardly ever cover the same ground again. The 4CD package features most key bits from Hayes' work on the Vogue label – plus a few bits for Decca as well – all recorded under his own leadership in small groups, and in other bands under the direction of Jimmy Deuchar, Vic Lewis, Jack Parnell, Victor Feldman, and Dizzy Reece. Titles include "Orient Line", "Monsoon", "May Ray", "Peace Pipe", "Treble Gold", "Basshouse", "IPA Special", "Big Top", "Cabaletto", "Almost Like Being In Love", "Message To The Messengers", "Laker's Day", "Short Circuit", "Karen", "Blues In Two Modes", "Walkin Shoes", "Sextet", and "He's A Tramp". 71 tracks in all – including some unreleased numbers – plus a 44 page booklet as well!

Gerry MulliganGerry Mulligan – The Original Quartet With Chet Baker ... CD
Pacific Jazz, Early 50s. Used 2CD ... $6.99
A massive 2CD set that collects together 42 early recordings by the legendary Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker – the complete work of that group for Pacific Jazz, apart from their pairing with Lee Konitz! The set is really overflowing with work, and includes both 10" and 12" LP takes of some tunes, plus a few other alternates, and all of the original material that was spread out over a number of hard-to-track down 10" LPs. Both Mulligan and Baker recorded together a number of times after this, in a "reunion" style that hearkened back to the fame of these sides – but the originals are still the best, and feature a magical pairing of two gentle jazz talents in a setting that's mostly piano-less – but which also features some occasional work from Jimmy Rowles, plus a bit of ivory from Gerry as well. Titles include "She Didn't Say Yes She Didn't Say No", "Bernie's Tune", "Soft Shoe", "Walkin Shoes", "Motel", "Cherry", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Swinghouse", "Five Brothers", "Tea For Two", and "Funhouse".

✨✧ TuamieMasta Killa ... LP
Grand Garden, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fresh take on instrumental hip hop from Richmond, VA producer/beatmaker Tuamie! Tuamie's excellent entry in theHouse Shoes Presents series on Street Corner (Volume 4) hipped us to Tuamie's craft, inspired by 90s boombap, adventurous samples and global rhythms – and Masta Killa really confirms for us that he's the real deal. Includes "Yellow", "Hot Breeze", "Eulb Dream", "Follow Directions", "No Pursuit", "Flowing Waters", "Only", "Quiet", "3hree Sounds", "Not Breathing", "Brain Cell", "Unseen Signals", "Quit", "Thunder There', "King Of The Martin Luthers" and more.

✨✧ Ed BlackwellWhat It Be Like? ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the last recordings made by Ed Blackwell before his early passing in 1992 – an Oakland live date recorded with an excellent lineup that includes Graham Haynes on cornet, Carlos Ward on alto and flute, Mark Helias on bass, and a bit of guest trumpet from Don Cherry! The style here is earthy and organic – never overly modern, and building in a way that echoes Blackwell's angular roots, but transforms that sound into more spiritually exploratory lines. Ward's work is especially great, and the absence of a piano means that the interplay between cornet and sax is the main driving force of most tunes. Titles include "Nebula", "Grandma's Shoes", "Pentahouse", "First Love", and the extended "Lito" suite in 3 parts. CD
