James Blood UlmerBlues Preacher ... CD CD format
DIW/Columbia, 1994. Used ... $4.99
The title sort of gives this one away – as Ulmer's less out, and less rocking – and more playing in a gentler bluesy mode. He's on vocals, guitar, and flute – joined by Ronald Drayton on a second guitar, Mark Peterson on bass, and Aubrey Dayle on drums. Titles include "Jazz Is The Teacher", "Alone To Wonder", "Cheering", "Who Let The Cat Out Of The Bag", and "Get Up". CD

James Blood UlmerIn & Out ... CD CD format
In & Out (Germany), 2009. Used ... $4.99
Heavy guitar from James Blood Ulmer – still steeped in those deep, rich tones he seemed to pick up from the Hendrix generation many years past – presented here in an array of jazzy modes! Ulmer's got some of the freeness you'd know from his harmelodic years – that stretched-out way of soaring that really made him a key guitar inventor at the start of the 80s – and a few other cuts here are a bit more straightforward, although still with plenty of offbeat touches. Other players include Mark Peterson on bass and Aubrey Dayle on drums – and titles include "A Thing For Joe", "High Yellow", "Baby Talk", "Maya", "Eviction", "Fat Mama", "No Man's Land", and "Backbiter".

New James Blood UlmerBlues All Night ... CD CD format
In & Out (Germany), 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
Raspy guitar from James Blood Ulmer – cut right at the end of the 80s decade when he was clearly one of the most inventive players on his instrument! The set's got a quality that's similar to some of James' other records from the US of the time – as it's trying to branch out to a wider audience through the use of beats and vocals on many numbers – picking up plenty of the funky undercurrents that were going on in the New York downtown black rock scene! That later modifier definitely comes into play here – as Ulmer puts aside some of his freer jazz styles for more tuneful, song-based modes that highlight the vocals as much as the guitar. Titles include "Boss Machine", "Baby Snatcher", "I Don't Know Why", "She Ain't So Cold", "Peace & Happiness", and "Calling Marry". CD

New James Blood UlmerRevealing ... CD CD format
In & Out (Germany), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very unusual slice of work from guitarist James Blood Ulmer – material originally recorded in the late 70s in New York, but not issued until more than a decade later – making for a real revelation of Ulmer's early years as a leader! The tracks are all long and open, but have a different sound than some of James' better known records from a few years later – grooves that definitely show Ulmer's freewheeling approach to the guitar, but in ways that aren't trying as hard to enforce his identity, showing some surprising strong links to other jazz guitar modes! The balance is a bit hard to describe in words, but it's there – and the record's a great one if you only think of James as a guitarist capable of noisy or arty moments. The other players really help the feel of the record – and include George Adams on reeds, Cecil McBee on bass, and Doug Hammond on drums. Titles include "Revealing", "Raw Groove", "Overtime", and "Love Nest". CD

New James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? ... CD CD format
DIW (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic bit of Black Rock from James Blood Ulmer – and a record that was issued by Rough Trade in the UK, giving it a surprising influence on the post-punk scene of the time! In a way, Ulmer's groove here has a lot of punky-funk in the mix – thanks to some heavy electric bass from Amin Ali, and tight drumming from Ronald Shannon Jackson. The horns sneak in and out of the rhythms next to Ulmer's sometimes heavy guitar work – and players include David Murray, Oliver Lake, and Olu Dara – all grooving in a frenetic sound that's a key link between the New York downtown and UK post-punk scenes! Titles include "See Through", "TV Blues", "Time Out", "Jazz Is The Teacher (Funk Is the Preacher)", "Interview", "Pressure", and "Layout". CD

Larry YoungLawrence Of Newark ... LP LP format
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible stuff from the jazz underground of Newark! This is one of the rarest albums ever recorded by jazz organist Larry Young – cut for the tiny Perception label during the early 70s, and featuring some of the cream of the New Jersey jazz underground. The album's got playing that bridges a number of Young's different styles – from his straighter soul jazz work at Blue Note, to his harder jamming with Santana and John McLaughlin, to his more fusion oriented albums for Arista. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, but there's also a large ensemble of excellent players, and lots of other percussion and cool instrumentation that really gives the album an "out there" sound! Titles include "Sunshine Fly Away", "Saudia", "Hello Your Quietness", and "Khalid Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

New John PattonMemphis To New York Spirit ... CD CD format
Blue Note, 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great lost album by John Patton – recorded in 1970, but not ever issued until 1995! The record was most likely held back because it's one of the funky organist's most far-reaching – a stunning batch of modal tracks that moves way past the usual organ sound, and much more into Larry Young-ish territory. A young James Blood Ulmer is on guitar, and the great (and underrecorded) Marvin Cabell plays flute, soprano, and tenor sax. Really great stuff – and most likely material that will disappear again for another 25 years! Titles include "The Mandingo", "Bloodyun", "Memphis", "Steno", and a cover of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints". CD
