✨✧ James Blood UlmerAmerica – Do You Remember The Love? ... LP
Blue Note, 1987. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Ulmer on Blue Note – who'd a thunk it? And oddly, although the album's on one of the most jazz-based labels at the time, it's also one of Ulmer's most rock-oriented – with strong lead vocals on nearly every track, and an overall style that's as bluesy as it is experimentally jazzy. Ulmer's clearly emerged as a star in his own right (or own mind) by the time of the album – and there's less of the shared group dynamic of the harmelodic years, and more of a style that's set up to support his lead presence. Players include Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Nicky Skopelitis – and titles include "I Belong In The USA", "Lady Blue", "After Dark", "Black Sheep", and "Show Me Your Love America". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp, light stain, and a few creases.)

James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? (US pressing) ... LP
Artists House, 1980. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

James Blood UlmerBlack Rock ... LP
CBS, 1982. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Blood's groundbreaking LP that gave a name and energy to the 80's Black Rock movement. Recorded post-Ornette, but with a wild sound that certainly shows his influence. Cuts include "Open House", "Black Rock", "Moon Beam", "Overnight", and "We Bop". LP, Vinyl record album

James Blood UlmerBlues Preacher ... CD
DIW/Columbia, 1994. Used ... $1.99
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
(Barcode has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Gil EvansWhere Flamingos Fly ... LP
Artists House, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent set that was recorded in 1971, but not issued until 10 years later – by the small Artists House label, home to groundbreaking work by Ornette Coleman and James Blood Ulmer. Evans' record earns the same tag here – as it's a moody mix of electric and acoustic playing, featuring a group that includes Joe Beck, Billy Harper, Johnny Coles, Lenny White, Airto, and Hannibal Peterson. Titles include "Zee Zee", "Where Flamingos Fly", "Nana", and "El Matador". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John PattonMemphis To New York Spirit (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". Includes the bonus tracks "Man From Tanganyika", "Cissy Strut", "Dragon Slayer", "Buddy Boy", "2J" & "Sweet Pea". CD

✨✧ Larry YoungLawrence Of Newark ... LP
Perception, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Original pressing! Cover has some light wear, and a very light water stain near the bottom.)
