James Blood UlmerBlues Preacher ... CD
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
In & Out (Germany), 2009. Used ... $2.99
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".

✨✧ James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? (UK pressing) ... LP
Rough Trade (UK), 1980. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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
(Original UK pressing. Vinyl has some groove wear which causes some noise.)

✨✧ John PattonMemphis To New York Spirit (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99
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. 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

✨✧ Arthur BlytheLenox Avenue Breakdown ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning Columbia Records debut from Arthur Blythe – recorded at a time when the label was really sinking its teeth back into quality jazz, and helping artists like Arthur get some great new exposure! At the time of the date, Blythe had already spent years working in the jazz undergrounds on both coasts – developing a searing sound on alto sax that's perfect for the focused structure of this album – almost a tone poem of sorts, offering up a portrait of the Harlem scene that was a key part of Arthur's life at the time. The sounds are sharp, but also have a sense of energy that really holds them together – guiding the players through long readings of well-penned tunes by Blythe that are filled with loads of energy and life! Players include James Newton on flute, James Blood Ulmer on guitar, Bob Stewart on tuba, Cecil McBee on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Guillermo Franco on percussion – and titles include "Odessa", "Slidin Through", "Down San Diego Way", and "Lenox Avenue Breakdown".

✨✧ Ornette ColemanSoapsuds Soapsuds ... LP
Artists House, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Ornette's great albums for the obscure Artists House label, and different from the one that he recorded with James Blood Ulmer, which was more of a straight-on Harmelodic work. This one's got him playing a set of tender sensitive duets with bassist and longtime accompanyist Charlie Haden. The set's far from mellow, though, and the two of them work through a great set of material that includes "Sex Spy", "Soap Suds", and the theme to "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"! LP, Vinyl record album
