Johnny HartmanVoice That Is ... CD
MCA/Jazz Heritage, 1964. Used ... $5.99
At the time of this album, Johnny Hartman definitely was the voice that is – a singer with a new level of maturity for the 60s, and a voice that's far more masculine than the geeky look of the photo on the cover! Hartman's sound here is smooth and warm, but never in a too-commercial way – a great antidote to some of the bigger singers of his generation, and cast perfectly here in some lightly jazzy arrangements by Bob Hammer. A few tracks feature backing by a quartet led by Hank Jones – and the rest feature a slightly larger group with 2 guitars and some nice Latin percussion. Titles include "Funny World", "Waltz For Debbie", "It Never Entered My Mind", "Let Me Love You", "My Ship", "The Day The World Stopped Turning", "Slow Hot Wind", and "The More I See You". CD

✨✧ Louis Armstrong & Oscar PetersonLouis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson ... CD
Verve/Jazz Heritage, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gentle-going genius from the later years of Satchmo's career – a session that has Louis on trumpet and vocals, backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio! Peterson's usual group with Herb Ellis and Ray Brown is expanded slightly for this outing – bringing in Louis Bellson on drums to syncopate the tunes a bit more strongly, and give them that gently swinging rhythm that always works well with Armstrong's style. The real surprise, though, is Louis' voice – which is simple, almost elegant at times – and free from some of the gimmicks of other 50s sessions, or the too-playful style of his better-known duets of the period. We really love his gentle, honest approach to the lyrics here – on tunes that include "I'll Never Be The Same", "Moon Song", "What's New", "There's No You", "You Go To My Head", "That Old Feeling", and "Let's Fall In Love". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – including "Let's Do It", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Makin Whoopee". CD

BoscoeBoscoe (with download) ... LP
Kingdom Of Chad/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 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

Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleOn The Beach (aka Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble) (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Pheelco, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $19.99
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. Plus, the edition also includes 2 bonus cuts – "Frankiphone Blues", and a great live version of "Unity" from 1968. 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! LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & FireNeed Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1971. Good+ ... $8.99
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

George E LewisPower Stronger than Itself – The AACM & American Experimental Music ... Book
University Of Chicago, 2008. New Copy ... $34.99
A history and biography of the AACM by George E Lewis – the jazz and cultural institution that includes legends and modern masters such as the Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Anthony Braxton, Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill, Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, Nicole Mitchell and many more – including the book's author George Lewis! Lewis is a trombonist, who joined the collective as a teenager in 1971 – and who better to chronicle than a someone who has been involved for several decades? The group was formed in the civil rights era in the city's southside, for a necessary sense of community as well as for social action, but it soon evolved in one of the great forces in experimental jazz and free musical expression of the late 20th Century. From the collective's roots in Chicago, to its work in New York, Paris and all over the world, this is an epic that's worth exploring. Softcover, 690 pages, plus a middle passage with photos & illustrations. Book

Shelly ManneMy Son The Jazz Drummer! ... LP
Contemporary, 1962. Very Good+ ... $16.99
One of the stranger examples of a very short-lived jazz trend – the "jazz meets folk" style that appeared on a handful of albums in the early 60s. This one features Shelly Manne exploring his Jewish heritage on a host of Israeli and Jewish folk tunes, played with a group that includes Shorty Rogers, Teddy Edwards, Victor Feldman, and Al Viola. The overall sound is pretty cool – as the tracks have an angular jaunty approach that lends itself well to Manne's dexterous drumming, and a lingering sadness that brings out a nice tone in Edwards' tenor. Titles include "Zamar Nodad", "Bokrei Lachish", "Orchah Bamidbar", "My Yiddishe Momme", and "Tzena". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and a bit of marker on front.)

VariousNew Orleans Funk – The Original Sound Of Funk 1960 to 1975 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 3LP ... $28.99
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, "Sissy Walk" by Sonny Jones, "Free, Single, & Disengaged" by Huey Piano Smith, "Garden Of Four Trees" by The Explosions, "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!

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsemblePhilip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble ... LP
Zulu, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This is a lost bit of Chicago jazz history, featuring a group of soulful jazz players, many of whom went on to be in The Pharaohs or Earth Wind & Fire. Players include Charles Handy, Don Myrick, Aaron Dodd, Henry Gibson, and Louis Satterfield, and the sound is deep, moody, and spiritual – with little of the funky side that The Pharaohs had. Phil Cohran leads up this heavy group, and he plays coronet (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). The tracks are spiritual and long, with meaningful, meditative passages. 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. Great stuff, and tough to find. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Detroit ExperimentDetroit Experiment ... CD
Ropeadope/P-Vine (Japan), 2003. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bomb – and one of the greatest records we've heard from Detroit in 30 years! This massively beautiful record is the brainchild of Carl Craig, and it's unlike anything else he's ever done – a richly cosmic blend of music that includes funk, soul jazz, house, electronica, and more – stretching back over the tremendous cultural heritage of Detroit in the post-Motown years, magically managing to bring together many elements, and forge them into a beautiful new sound for the 21st century! The scope of the project is amazing – and features contributions from legendary Detroiters Bennie Maupin, Regina Carter, Marcus Belgrave, Geri Allen, Karriem Riggins, and others. Includes an amazing remake of Belgrave's classic space jazz cut "Space Odyssey", Doug Carn's "Revelation", Stevie Wonder's "Too High", and the tracks "Think Twice", "Midnight At Twenty Grand", "Baby Needs New Shoes", "There Is A God", and "Vernors".

✨✧ 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
(Original green label pressing. Cover has heavy wear on the top seam.)

✨✧ VariousAfrican Spirits – A Spiritual Jazz Journey Looking Back To Africa ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Afro-centric jazz from the 70s through the 90s – a real spiritual journey in music, compiled from a host of hard to find records, most of which are long out of print! The music on the collection is from three different decades, but the set's got a wonderfully unified feel – thanks to a strong spiritual current that runs through all the tunes, and a linked heritage of performance that was shared by many of the players over the years. Tracks are from a very diverse set of sources – including many American and European indie labels of the 60s and 70s – and all tunes are long, soulful, and plenty darn righteous! Titles include "Song For Mozambique" by Archie Shepp, "Africa" by Sathima B Benjamin, "The Almoravid" by Joe Chambers, "Our Roots Began In Africa" by Pharoah Sanders, "Days Gone By" by Moe Koffman, "Children" by Nation/African Liberation Arts Ensemble, "Mrafu" by Nate Morgan, "Afro Blue" by J Life, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Adele Sebastian, and "Banks Of The Nile" by Carlos Garnett.

Honest Jons (UK), 2009. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The amazing full length debut of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a cool combo from the Chicago scene who've been making some big waves around the world over the past few years! The brass-heavy group have a family legacy that links them to the Artistic Heritage Ensemble of Phil Cohran – and an approach to their music that mixes spiritual jazz, deep funk, and elements of New Orleans music too – a really unique style that has earned the group's rare singles some tremendous praise – and which is finally ready to step out fully in this wonderful album! The horns are even harder and heavier than before – honed through some touring around the globe, and brought into focus here beautifully – bristling with energy from the very first note. The set features guest appearances from Malcolm Catto, Tony Allen, Flea, and Damon Albarn – but the real strength of the record lies in the group's amazing horns and rhythms – on titles that include "War", "Gibbous", "Alyo", "Ballicki Bone", "Jupiter", "Marcus Garvey", "Party Started", "Sankofa", "Satin Sheets", "Hypnotic", and 2 versions of "Rabbit Hop".

Marlena ShawGo Away Little Boy – The Sass & Soul Of Marlena Shaw ... CD
Columbia, 1970s. Used ... $6.99
A sweet set of sophisticated soul from the always-great Marlena Shaw! 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 this 14 track package is a perfect introduction to her work at Columbia! Titles include "Sweet Beginnings", "Walk Softly", "No One Yet", "Love Dancin", "Pictures & Memories", "Touch Me In The Morning", "I Wonder", "Moonrise", "I Think I'll Tell Him", and "Rhythm Of Love".

This is the kind of funk they've been hiding from you all these years – the real deal, the heavy stuff, the type of work that's made driving around the country looking for rare 45s so worthwhile! This material's the kind that makes a trip like that happen – super-rare funk from Texas, dug up by the Jazzman posse, and given the stamp of approval by DJ Shadow! The package is a perfect introduction to the lost heritage of Texas funky work – as it not only includes 21 searing tracks of funk (some of the best we've heard compiled in a long time!), but it also features a breakdown of the different scenes in the state, and a full set of notes on each tune, complete with an image of the original 45! The whole thing's unbelievable – as well researched as it is hard and funky, and a delight to the ears throughout.

If you can forgive the title of this one, you'll find it to be a very groovy record! The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best Italian soundtracks from the time, no surprise, as Martelli had his hand in a few from that era! The music is really great, with some excellent sax and flute work that takes the tracks into a jazzier mode than usual for this sort of thing! Loads of great percussion too – and titles include "Loco Love Motor", "Mondo No", "Krypto Blues", "Ma ne Vale La Pena", "90th Compleanno", and "Sara Stato Il Futuro". LP, Vinyl record album
