✨✧ Carmen McRaeAny Old Time (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Denon/Jazz Heritage, 1986. Used ... Out Of Stock
A warm later set from Carmen McRae – recorded with great small combo jazz backing that features tenor sax work from Clifford Jordan! The album's a real back-to-basics one for McRae – and gets away from crossover modes used in the 60s and 70s, taking Carmen back to the more jazz-based sound of her earliest records – but going even one further by bringing in Jordan, since Carmen mostly started out with straight trio backing. Other players include Eric Gunnison on piano and John Collins on guitar – and the tunes themselves are mostly standards, sung with impeccable phrasing. Titles include "Tulip Or Turnip", "Body & Soul", "I Hear Music", "This Is Always", "It Could Happen To You", "Old Devil Moon", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". CD

Rhythm HeritageDisco Derby ... CD
ABC/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About May 16, 2018
Maybe one of the most unified albums ever from Rhythm Heritage – a set with a really tight groove, and some of the most soulful vocals the group ever recorded! All the great instrumentation of before is still very firmly in place – a wicked mix of funky jazz and disco rhythms, courtesy of a combo that includes Michael Omartin on keyboards, Paul Jackson and Jay Gordon on guitars, and Victor Feldman on percussion! Arno Lucas is on vocals – and titles include "Life Line", "Come On & Dance", "Face In The Crowd", "Disco House", and "Disco Derby". CD

✨✧ Tomasz StankoJazz Message From Poland ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
A jazz message from Poland, and one that's served up loud and proud, too – thanks to tremendous work from trumpeter Tomasz Stanko and a very sharp-edged group! The music here has that open flow that some of the more fusion-based players were exploring in Poland at the time – but the instrumentation is all acoustic, and also has a modal sensibility too – echoes of the territory that Stanko explored in the 60s, but taken to much more freewheeling territory on the long tracks on the set. The group features Zbigniew Seifert on violin – who, like other great European players on the instrument in his generation, manages to work with phrasing that's almost sax-like at times – very different than the heritage of jazz violin from previous decades, and surprisingly great. Other musicians include Janusz Muniak on flute and tenor, Bronislaw Suchanek on bass, and Janusz Stefanski on drums and percussion – on the titles "AEIOE", "Heban", and "Piece For Diana". CD

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleOn The Beach (aka Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble) ... LP
Tizona, Late 60s. Used 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing – and a landmark recording that crosses all boundaries in the Chicago music scene of the late 60s! Philip Cohran was a visionary musician who'd played with Sun Ra during the 60s, but who left Ra to forge his own musical vision by the middle part of the decade. The Artistic Heritage ensemble was a crucially important group in Chicago – one that drew players from both the soul and jazz scenes, with a wealth of talents that later went onto work with groups like Earth Wind & Fire, The Pharoahs, Ra's Arkestra, and other ensembles. Talents on this set alone include players like Charles Handy, Don Myrick, Aaron Dodd, Henry Gibson, and Louis Satterfield – not to mention Cohran, who plays cornet (as he did with Sun Ra), plus two groovy instruments of his own invention: the violin uke and the great Frankiphone, a sort of electric thumb piano whose use on these recordings pre-dated the very famous Kalimba sound that Earth Wind & Fire would use to great success during the 70s. The album includes the driving conga funk track "Unity", the singing soulful track "The Minstrel", the incredibly haunting "On The Beach", and the track "Motherhood", which has a strong Abbey Lincoln type of feel. The whole thing's a beautiful batch of spiritual jazzy tracks with a good groove – and a perfect blend of soul and spirit, jazz and righteousness! Beautifully packaged, too – a special 2LP set with fidelity that goes way beyond the original pressing! LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic look at the righteous current of energy that swept through American music at the end of the 60s – that huge wave of knowledge and political inspiration that still stands as one of our favorite moments in jazz and soul! The Civil Rights generation had gotten some things accomplished, but not everything – and a new wave of action arose in various scenes of the underground – not just pushing the musical formats past anything that had happened before, but also doing so with a strong message of pride and empowerment! This collection surveys some of the best tracks of that moment – and also provides a great batch of historical notes to put the whole thing in context – done in collaboration with the book of the same name, but equally great as a soundtrack and document on its own. The package is overflowing with Dusty Groove classics – and titles include "Sweet Songs" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Surtal Ihklas" by Doug Carn, "Vibes From The Tribe" by Phil Ranelin, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Horace Tapscott & The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, "Sounds From The Bush" by The Mandingo Griot Society with Don Cherry, "Is It Too Late" by Duke Edwards & The Young Ones, "Strong Men" by David McKnight, "Black Narcissus" by Joe Henderson, "Malcolm X" by Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble, "Mother Of The Future" by Carlos Garnett, "Red Black & Green" by Roy Ayers, "African Rhythms" by Oneness Of Juju, and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron.

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSingles (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Midday Music, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from the legendary Phil Cohran – and a much-needed collection of his rare singles on the Zulu label! The work here is contemporary to the sides issued by Phil's Artistic Heritage Ensemble on their two famous records – but the sound is often a bit tighter, and funkier too – kind of the 45 distillation of sounds the group was working out in larger format on the full albums! As with those classics, the approach is amazing – a hip blend of jazz, soul, and African elements – very much in the spirit of Sun Ra, Cohran's predecessor on the Chicago scene – but often with a lot more groove, and a lot less avant garde elements. Players on the set include Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on baritone, Charles Handy on trumpet, Louis Satterfield on bass, Pete Cosey on guitar, and Henry Gibson on timbales and conga – all working at a level that easily rivals the best from Ra, Salah Ragab, Mulatu, and other space jazz legends from the time! Titles include "The African Look", "Loud Mouth", "New Frankiphone Blues", "Frankiphone Blues", "Detroit Red", "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz", and "Black Beauty". CD

Monty AlexanderHere Comes The Sun ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
Beautiful sounds from pianist Monty Alexander – and a record that really has him finding his own groove! Monty had recorded often in the 60s, and usually mixed his Caribbean roots with a bit of American soul jazz – but it really took the MPS label to help him find a spot to set himself free and really open up with his own sort of voice! Alexander soars with a sense of joy and imagination right from the very first note – getting help from Eugene Wright on bass, Duffy Jackson on drums, and the great Montego Joe on congas – in a mode that's maybe Monty's contribution to finding a Caribbean sound in jazz piano the way that work of Randy Weston and Dollar Brand were towards a more African-oriented heritage. The colors and phrasing of Alexander's touch on the keys is already pretty darn unique, and the rhythmic impulses send things home even more – on titles that include a great funky remake of "Here Comes The Sun" – plus "Where Is Love", "Montevideo", "Brown Skin Girl", and "So What".

BoscoeBoscoe (with download) ... LP
Kingdom Of Chad/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the hippest records ever to come out of Chicago – the sole recording by Boscoe, a group who was even more obscure and experimental than contemporaries like The Pharoahs or Artistic Heritage Ensemble! Like those groups, Boscoe has a very unique, very visionary approach – one that's not content just to echo the standard post-Coltrane modes that other spiritual jazz groups around the country were hitting – but which instead moves into territory that touches on the darker sides of funk, soul, and spoken word of the time – all with a message that's incredibly powerful, and conception that's wonderfully fresh throughout! The group's lineup features tenor, trumpet, trombone, guitar, bass, and drums – but they way they're put together is often far different than other funky combos – and it's clear that the group had as much of a sensibility about the overall sound of their record as they did their freer grooves. At times, there's a righteousness here that recalls the best of the early Westbound Records scene from Detroit – but there's an even higher agenda too, which is more in keeping with the spiritual aspriations of their Chicago contemporaries, and which really show up in the lyrics. The whole album's a masterpiece from start to finish – unlike anything that we can think of, still ripe for rediscovery today, and just the kind of set that makes us prouder than ever of our Chicago heritage! Titles include "We Ain't Free", "Money Won't Save You", "Now and Den", "He Keeps You", "I'm What You Need", and "Writin' On The Wall". LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & FireNeed Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1971. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the two early Earth Wind & Fire LPs recorded for Warner – and the one that shows their amazing roots in the avant-garde jazz scene in Chicago. At the forefront, the record's a righteous soul album with an ensemble funk sound – but deeper in, there's a lot of jazz-based playing, and a number of moments that almost get "out" in the solos! Surely this one couldn't have been made without the spiritual advancements in jazz made by the AACM – and EWF couldn't have helped rubbing shoulders with those players, considering that they all often gigged together in the Chicago studio scene, and that they'd also shared some time together in groups like The Pharoahs and Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble. Titles include "Energy", "Beauty", and a nice remake of Donny Hathaway's "Everything is Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

Hypnotic Brass EnsembleBrothers Hypnotic – A Film By Reuben Atlas About The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (with DVD) ... LP
Factory, 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
A fantastic little package – one that not only features music by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, but also a DVD that tells the story of the group's unique legacy too! The story of the ensemble has been told before – they are all sons of the legendary Phil Cohran, of Artistic Heritage Ensemble fame – and growing up together, they not only absorbed their father's sense of spiritual jazz, but also his individuality as well! There's few groups we could imagine making a set of brass instruments sound this great – and the accompanying film shows just how much thought and dedication go into their music. The album features some live tracks – "Balicky Bon", "Jupiter", "Indigo", and "Mars" – and studio tracks "Navigator", "Touch The Sky", and "Kryptonite" – plus "Black Boy", which also features Phil Cohran. DVD features performances by the group, plus appearances by Mos Def, Damon Albarn, and Prince! LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 2006 to 2016 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 27.99
Jazzanova are maybe best remembered for their early Compost Records releases from the German scene – tracks that really helped reintroduce jazz and Brazilian modes to the contemporary dancefloors back in the 90s! In the years since those now-classic releases, Jazzanova have moved more strongly towards a role as remixers, lending their strong sense of history and sonic depth towards a range of other artists – often with an approach that really transforms the original tune, and makes the whole thing feel like a fresh Jazzanova track! This collection of work from a decade in the studio really lives up as a strong testament to that role – and showcases the Jazzanova touch on sublime cuts that include "Ordinary Guy (Jazzanova rework ext version)" by Joe Bataan, "Naze (Jazzanova rmx)" by Spinning Motion, "Believer (Jazzanova rmx)" by Paul Randolph, "Skybreaks (Jazzanova rmx)" by Heritage Orchestra, "Parallels (Jazzanova serial rmx)" by Atjazz with Dawne B, "Listen To The Drums (Jazzanova rmx)" by Outlines, "Dimentica Domani (Jazzanova rmx dub)" by Malika Ayane, and "Stimela (Jazzanova rmx)" by Hugh Masekela.

World's Experience OrchestraBeginning Of A New Birth (with bonus download) ... LP
Now Again, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
A lost legacy in spiritual jazz – material recorded by a Boston group who worked far from the limelight in New York – in a very underground scene where they recorded this very special in the 70s! Their sound is very collaborative and freewheeling – an approach that reminds us a lot of music by Phil Cohran and The Artistic Heritage Ensemble. The album really lives up to its title, given the joyous energy it brings into being – a very collaborative vibe that has the entire ensemble working together on two side-long tracks – mixing rootsy percussion, avant solos, and unified voices that really give the music a special touch! The mix of ensemble vocals and reed elements is a bit like some of the Max Roach or Billy Harper projects of the time – but the approach is looser, less structured, and very organic. Players include Michael Cosmic on alto, Raquib Ishma'll Hassan on tenor, Phil Musra on soprano sax, Shaddu Jones on piano, and Robert Fuff on bass – and titles include "The Beginning Of A New Birth" and "The Prayer".

VariousNew Orleans Funk – The Original Sound Of Funk 1960 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $13.99
One of the best compilations of New Orleans funk we've ever seen! Sure, the reissue market is always filled with stuff from the Crescent City – but so many New Orleans compilations are cheapo knock-offs, designed to cash in on the drunk Jazz & Heritage crowd, or they're simplistic sets with the same 10 tracks over and over again. This wonderful batch of tunes was put together by the folks at Soul Jazz – legendary for their work in putting together serious compilations to please the novice and expert alike – and it's got some of the best overall work we've ever seen in trying to pin down New Orleans funk. Sure, there may be a few cuts on here that you've got on other sets – but there's also a lot that you won't have, and the quality of the production makes even the familiar material sparkle again. Titles include "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, "Big Chief (part 1)" by Professor Longhair, "Tell Me What's On Your Mind" by Cyril Neville, "Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further" by Lee Dorsey, "Hand Clapping Song" by The Meters, "Here Come The Girls" by Ernie K Doe, "Free, Single, & Disengaged" by Huey Piano Smith, "Dap Walk" by Ernie & The High Notes, "Mama Roux" by Dr John, "Love Lots Of Lovin" by Lee Dorsey & Betty Harris, "I've Got Reasons" by Mary Jane Hooper, "Gatur Bait" by The Gaturs, "Hip Huggin" by Robert Parker, and "Can I Be Your Squeeze" by Chuck Carbo. 24 tracks in all!

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireEarth Wind & Fire ... LP
Warner, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Earth, Wind & Fire's first album – recorded at a time when the group recently had ties to the Chicago soul and jazz scenes, and a range of experience that ran the gamut from work with Sun Ra, the Artistic Heritage Ensemble, The Pharoahs, Ramsey Lewis, and countless other influential groups. Headed up by Maurice White on drums and percussion, the group forged an amazing blend of all these influences, creating a future soul sound that pushed black music to the next level – taking a wealth of previously underground modes of expression, and fusing them into a soaring sound that would soon put them at the top of the charts. This album's a lot looser and freer than their Columbia albums – with plenty of raw funk and some nice off-beat jazz soling. Includes the classic break track "C'Mon Children", plus "Fan The Fire", "Bad Tune", and "Moment Of Truth". LP, Vinyl record album

Honest Jons (UK), 2012. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An amazing bit of music – and an incredible document of generations of creative jazz energy as well! The legendary Phil Cohran teams up here with Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a collective made up of Cohran's sons, who follow strongly in the rich legacy of his own Artistic Heritage group – yet in a very different way! Hypnotic Brass have caught the ear of many during their bright rise to fame – with a fluid, horn-heavy groove that's really amazing – echoes of Sun Ra and other Chicago creative legends – yet played almost entirely on brass instruments, which gives them an even bolder vibe. Here, working with their progenitor brings the group even more depth than before – an excellent sound that really spins things out wonderfully – percussion layered underneath the horns, solos taking jazzy flight, and an overall righteous vibe that holds things together beautifully. The album's way more than the sum of its parts – and those parts are already rich indeed – and titles include "Stateville", "Cuernavaca", "Ancestral", "Spin", "Zincali", "Apsara", and "Frankincense & Myrrh".

✨✧ Marlena ShawGo Away Little Boy – The Columbia Anthology ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge set of work from the mighty Marlena Shaw – one that really documents the new level of genius she hit during her late 70s run at Columbia Records! After cutting some jazzier sides at Cadet in the late 60s, and some super mellow fusion ones at Blue Note in the early 70s, Marlena moved to big fame at Columbia during the mid 70s – working in a righteous smooth soul approach that skated the line between warm romantic ballads and righteous statements of female pride and power. The ultimate example of this is her fantastic remake of "Go Away Little Boy", merged here with the tune "Yu Ma", into a 7 minute track that has a sublime monologue in the middle – one in which Marlena accuses her man of hiding behind his heritage to not get down to business at a day to day level! Other tracks show Marlena as one of the most expressive, most together women in soul during the 70s – and the package features 28 tracks in all, including some rare single cuts too. Titles include "Yu-Ma/Go Away Little Boy", "The Writing's On The Wall", "No Deposit No Return", "Places", "Theme From Looking For Mr Goodbar", "I Thank You", "Touch Me In The Morning (rmx)", "It Was A Very Good Year/I'm A Foster Child", "I Think I'll Tell Him", "Sweet Beginnings", "More", "Pictures & Memories", "Moonrise", "Dreamin", "Rhythm Of Love", "Look At Me Look At You", "Shaw Biz/Suddenly It's How I Like To Feel/Shaw Biz", "I'll Be Your Friend", "Mama Tried", and "Walk Softly".
