✨✧ Marion BrownThree For Shepp/Vista ... CD
Impulse (Germany), 1967/1975. New Copy ... $11.99
Two wonderful albums from Marion Brown – back to back in a single set! Three For Shepp is an unbelievable recording! As Archie Shepp made his first album for Impulse a tribute to Coltrane, Marion Brown made his a tribute to Shepp – a wonderful lineage of avant talent in the 60s, stated boldly here, given Brown's amazing talent on the record! The album's filled with hard, soulful playing that goes out, but never too far – like Shepp in his best sixties moments – and Brown's working with a great lineup of players that includes Grachan Moncur on trombone, Beaver Harris on drums, and Stanley Cowell on piano! The tunes include three Marion Brown originals on side one, plus three tracks by Shepp on side two. "Spooks" alone will leave you loving this album for years to come – and other tracks include "West India", "Delicado", "New Blue", and "Fortunato". A brilliant blend of 60s "new thing" playing and 70s underground jazz! Vista is a strangely wonderful album from Marion Brown – quite different from his other work on Impulse, with a mellow electric edge that gives it a warm and laidback feel! The approach here is much more soulful than before – with finely crafted tunes that weave Brown's work on alto with electric piano by Anthony Davis and Stanley Cowell, percussion by Ed Blackwell and Jimmy Hopps, and bass by Reggie Workman. If you're expecting the angrier Brown from earlier years, you'll be disappointed – but if you're ready to hear a Brown that's gently crafting mellow lines in a soulful setting, then you're in for a treat. Tracks include Cowell's "Maimoun", Stevie Wonder's "Visions", Brown's "Vista", "Moment of Truth", "Bismillah Rrahimani Rrahim", and "Djinji". CD

James Luther DickinsonDixie Fried ... LP
Atlantic/Future Days, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 31.99
Jim really gets it right on this one – a soul-steeped, country-fried gem that's one of the greatest things to come out of the southern rock scene of the early 70s! Dickinson might be best remembered these days for his work as a vital session player and producer, but Dixie Fried is an incredible record! He covers a lot of stylistic territory here, from blistering barn burners like "Wine", to psych country backed righteous recitation on "John Brown", to bluesy swagger that slays even the Stones on "Dixie Fried" – the record is a should-be classic from beginning-to-end! All hail James Luther Dickinson. Other tracks include "Wild Bill Jones", "The Lady From Baltimore", "Clap Your Hands", "Relax Your Mind", "Louise", "Mama Tried", "Sanctified" and more.

Jimmy GreeneFlowers – Beautiful Life Vol 2 ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A huge step forward in music for saxophonist Jimmy Greene – an artist who's still reeling from the loss of his daughter, who was murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary in 2012 – but who's turning his grief and sorrow into some of the richest music he's ever recorded! The feel here is even deeper than the first volume dedicated to Green's daughter – original songs that burst out with so much life and energy, we're held rapt right from the very first note – almost never mired in the sort of melancholy you might expect from such an experience, and instead ready to set a new fire to light the way ahead! Greene plays tenor, soprano, alto, and baritone – and other musicians include Kevin Hayes on Rhodes and piano, Mike Moreno on guitar, Renee Rosnes on piano, Ben Williams and John Patitucci on bass, and Jeff Tain Watts and Otis Brown III on drums. Titles include "Fun Circuits", "Second Breakfast", "Flowers", "Stanky Leg", "Big Guy", "Amantes", and "Thirty Two". CD

Eddie HarrisCome On Down/Reason Why I'm Talkin S**t ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1970/1976. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
2 Atlantic gems from Eddie Harris – back to back in a 2CD set! Come On Down is a really great little set that has Eddie's Chicago tenor linking up with the growing Miami soul scene of the early 70s – as Eddie "comes on down" to the Sunshine State, and records for Atlantic at the legendary Criteria Studios! Eddie's still got the electric Varitone groove of his late 60s sides for the label – but he's also stepping out here in a dirtier, funkier bottom sort of sound – aided by a combo that includes southern soulsters Billy Carter on organ, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Dave Crawford on piano – plus Jimmy O'Rourke and Cornelle Dupree playing guitars side by side, in a jamming way that really makes the album groove! There's still some nice spacier moments that remind us of Eddie's Chicago recordings, sitting nicely next to the funkier cuts that make the album stand out. Titles include "Fooltish", "Why Don't You Quit", "Don't You Know Your Future's In Space", and "Live Right Now". Reason Why I'm Talkin is a very interesting album from Eddie Harris – one that's more of a comedy album than a jazz record – honest! Most of the record features Eddie performing his own comedy material – pretty blue stuff with lots of bad-rapping and profanity – possibly trying to cash in on the Rudy Ray Moore tip. A few cuts feature some backing by a combo that includes Paul Humphrey on drums and Odell Brown on organ – helping Eddie to set the scene and change the mood. Titles include "People Getting Ready To Go See Eddie Harris", "Are There Any Questions", "The Next Band", "Brother Soul", "Eddie Atlantic", and "Singing & Straining". CD

The Jimi Hendrix Experience at their most classic! Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness.

Jimmy SmithBucket ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good ... $11.99
Jimmy Smith serves up a bucket of soul here – on an album that's one of his last for Blue Note, and still very much in the strong trio mode that launched his work for the label! The group's that super-sharp early 60s combo of Jimmy's – with Quentin Warren on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – both players who have a groove that's maybe a bit under-stated at times, but which really lets Smith dominate the record – on both the keys of the Hammond, and the great work he brings to the bass pedals too. The tracks are short, but very groovy – with a tighter sound than on some of Smith's early Blue Note trio albums, and the same kind of in-the-pocket sound that made his Crazy Baby album a big hit. Includes a very groovy remake of "John Brown's Body", the original groovers "Bucket" and "Sassy Mae", and a nice modal tune called "3 for 4". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee KonitzMeets Jimmy Giuffre ... LP
Verve, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
It's hard to find a more all-star modernist session on Verve in the 50s – given that the record not only features Lee Konitz on alto and Jimmy Giuffre on baritone, but also includes Warne Marsh and Ted Brown on tenors, Hal McKusick on alto, and Bill Evans on piano! With a group like that, you've gotta imagine that the record's great – and the sound here definitely lives up to its promise – an even more Konitz-like or Giuffre-styled set than other albums of the era by the players – one with sharp-edged charts for the horns, but plenty of space for the soloists to snake around nicely. Most tracks have a somewhat sharp edge, but a warm heart at their core – and rhythm is by the team of Buddy Clark on bass and Ronnie Free on drums. Titles include "The Song Is You", "Darn That Dream", "Uncharted", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Somp'n Outa' Nothin", "Palo Alto", and "Cork n Bib". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has a light stain near the spine.)

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
One of our favorite records by Earl Hines – a hip little comeback set, recorded in the mid 60s with an Ellingtonish lineup that includes Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, and Johnny Hodges. Hines' piano is certainly a strong force in the record, but even more delightful is the solid feel of the players overall – working with that complete coherence found in the best 60s sides by Duke, but touched here with some of Hines' sprightly approach to the melody. Titles include "Once Upon A Time", "Black & Tan Fantasy", "You Can Depend On Me", "Hash Brown", and "Fantastic That's You". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny RollinsPure Gold Jazz (aka What's New?) ... LP
RCA, 1962. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A 70s budget reissue of What'[s New?, a very unique album from Sonny Rollins – one that features him blowing tenor over some Latin-based rhythms that have a tight uptempo feel. The core group on the album features Jim Hall on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – but they're augmented by larger arrangements that mix together bossa nova and calypso rhythms, which forge a surprisingly great background for Rollins' gutsy tenor. Although it's easy to dismiss the record as a throwaway cash-in affair on the Latin boom of the early 60s – Rollins actually handles himself wonderfully, and the longer-than-usual tracks on the album show a whole new side of his talents that were later reprised on Latin sessions during the 70s. Titles include "Bluesongo", "Jungoso", "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", and "Brownskin Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
Hard-grooving R&B from a host of hip talents from the 50s – music that's a bit blues, a bit jazz, and which goes past the obvious tunes you'd usually find on a collection like this! The cuts were chosen by the folks at the Cole Slaw Club in Germany – a specialist spot to step to old school grooves like these – and the sounds are a very cool mix of jukebox jive, groovy instrumentals, and some deeper-voiced tunes that really give the collection a lot of depth! The collection's not afraid to step between different genres in search of a swinging groove – in the best Bear Family/Cree Records style – and titles include "I Changed My Mind Jack" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Spider In The Web" by The Dooley Sisters, "Big John" by Richard Berry, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver's Orchestra, "Salome Twist" by The Carroll Brothers, "Talk About Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Sugar Diabetes" by Eddie Banks, "Stolen Love" by Miss Lavell, "Sweet Little Love Like You" by Al Brown & The Tune Toppers, "Dance Of The Goony Bird" by Pat Miller, "Summertime" by Sylvia Mora, and "My Old Man" by Buddy & Ella Johnson.

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonSay It Loud! ... CD
Water/Blue Note, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Blue Note funky jazz sets of the late 60s – an all-out soul fest headed up by funky Lou Donaldson, and featuring some incredible work on drums from Idris Muhammad – who was still calling himself Leo Morris at this point! Muhammad's work on the drums is fantastic – not just in the snap-funk mode of some of his oft-sampled Blue Note classics, but also hitting these nicely changed-up rhythms that dance along with a free sense of joy, love, and life – one that seems to open Lou up even more than before! Other players on the set are great too – and include a young Charles Earland on organ, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, and Jimmy Ponder on guitar – cooking up some incredible licks that fill in the spaces between the grooves with a wash of soulful colors! Titles include a great version of the James Brown Classic "Say It Loud", plus the originals "Snake Bone" and "Brother Soul" – and surprisingly great takes on "Summertime" and "Caravan"! CD

✨✧ Pee Wee RussellAsk Me Now! ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or some of the earlier sides by Steve Lacy. There's still a swing-based approach to the tunes, but they're handled in a spare style that features equal interplay between Russell, trombonist Marshall Brown, bassist Russell George, and drummer Ronnie Bedford – a great player who really makes the album sparkle! The tracks include a couple of Thelonious Monk titles – "Ask Me Now!" and "Hackensack" as well as a couple of Marshall Brown originals – "Licorice Stick" and "Calypso Walk". Other titles are Ornette Coleman's "Turnaround", Coltrane's "Some Other Blues" and Ellington's "Prelude To A Kiss". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBlack Gold – Samples, Breaks, & Rare Groove From The Chess Records Archives ... CD
Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Incredible sounds from the Chess Records catalog – not the blues that you might know the label for, but a huge range of funk, soul, and jazz tracks from the headiest years of the 60s and 70s – a time when the Chicago scene was really turning out some incredible musical hybrids! As you'd guess from the title, all the cuts here have had a new life in recent years – thanks to samples by hip hop artists or other producers – but the original grooves are even better than the tracks that used them, and come together here to make one of the most mindblowing collections of Chess material we've ever heard! The package is nicely heavy on sounds from the Cadet/Concept years of the label – with more than a few contributions from producers Charles Stepney and Richard Evans – and the package features 42 wonderful tracks – including "Fonky Thang Diamon Ring" by The Dells, "Windmills Of Your Mind" by Dorothy Ashby, "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" by Rotary Connection, "Jelly Jam" by Jack McDuff, "The Getaway" by Alvin Cash, "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler, "Cross Country" by Archie Whitewater, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Inside Out" by American Gypsy, "Go Go Power" by Sugar Pie DeSanto, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "Up Above The Rock" by Ray Bryant, "Bad Moon Rising" by Bo Diddley, "Shoo Be Doo Be Doo Be Do Da Day" by Eddie Fisher, "Humpin Bumpin & Thumpin" by Andre Williams, "Who Got The Number" by Pigmeat Markham, "Walk On By" by Jo Ann Garrett, "Chocolate Candy" by Soulful Strings, "Got To Get Your Own (7" version)" by Reuben Wilson, "Hanky's Panky (7" version)" by Shirley Scott, "Liberation Conversation" by Marlena Shaw, "Look Of Love" by Monk Higgins, and "Think About It" by Odell Brown & The Organizers.

Festival, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the influence of psychedelia on funk music – served up here in territory that starts with electric Miles Davis and prime Jimi Hendrix – then takes off into great new space of its own! The collection's awash in freak and fuzz, but also has plenty of heavy drums and basslines, too – served up by a range of soulful artists who were really blowing their minds and expanding their musical horizons at the end of the 60s – taking the same kind of chances that rock artists were in their album-long journeys – with results that are equally impressive! Familiar tracks are mixed with lesser-known gems – and titles include "Mary Don't Take Me On No Bad Trip" by Fugi, "Red Hot Mama" by Funkadelic, "Cherrystones" by Eugene McDaniels, "Patience Is Virtue" by William S Fischer, "Liar" by The Meters, "Thrills Of Love" by Warlock, "Willie Nelson (take 3)" by Miles Davis, "California Dreamin" by Eddie Hazel, "Like A Rolling Stone" by The Undisputed Truth, "Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic, "Doriella Du Fontaine" by Lightnin Rod & Jimi Hendrix, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (parts 1 & 2)" by James Brown, "Down By The River" by Buddy Miles, and "In A Silent Way (live)" by Santana. 2CD set features bonus tracks not on the vinyl – including "I Feel Bad" by Pure Hell, "Brown Rice" by Don Cherry, and "If You Got It You'll Get It" by The Headhunters.
