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

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

Jimmy McGriff & Richard Groove HolmesGiants Of The Organ In Concert ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1973. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Groove Holmes and Jimmy McGriff go head to head in this double-organ extravaganza! The set was recorded live in Boston in 1973, and it features some of the most furiously funky live organ grooving you'll find this side of Root Down – and a whole lot of super tight jazz jamming! The group's got three guitarists, one of whom is the great O'Donel Levy, plus Mike Moss on drums and Kwasi Jayourba percussion. Most of the tracks are nice and long, with lots of solo space, and titles include opening funky monster "The Preacher's Tune", plus "Beans", "Chopper", "Boston Whaler", "Mozambique" and "Brown Bread".

Sonny RollinsQuartets Featurig Jim Hall ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1962. Used ... $3.99
A double album collecting Newk's excellent quartet recordings with Jim Hall for RCA. As such it contains work from The Bridge and What's New?, plus a few numbers that got tacked onto the Standard Sonny Rollins. Given Hall's gentleness and spare modernity on the guitar, a fan of Rollins' hard-blowing late 50s sessions might not expect the album to work – but instead, it sets up his playing in a whole new mode that brings out a leaner, more confident, more sophisticated solo mode that shows that his time woodshedding in retirement was well spent. 13 numbers in all, including "John S.", "The Bridge", "You Do Something To Me", "Where Are You", "Without A Song", "If Ever I Would Leave You", "Brownskin Girl", "Don't Swtop The Carnival", "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", "My Ship", "Love Letters", "Long Ago (An Far Away)" and "God Bless the Child".

Jimmy Sheldon/Paris SistersSingle Room Furnished ... LP
Sidewalk, 1968. Near Mint- ... $58.99
This obscure soundtrack to this very unusual Jayne Mansfield film – an attempt at a "serious" narrative, but one that's still done with the sexy style of Crown International! Most music is by Jimmy Sheldon, in a variety of modes that include some nice jazzy moments – and the album also features one track with vocals by The Paris Sisters. Tracks include "Eileen Bossanova", "Bossanova Coda", "Waterfront Waltz", "Blues In Brownstone", and "Please Don't Go Away Darling". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithAt Club Baby Grand Vol 1 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1956. Used ... $6.99
Jimmy Smith heard in the kind of setting that spawned him – playing live at Delaware's Club Baby Grand – just the sort of smoky little jazz room that initially fostered his talents! The liveness of the set brings a really nice edge to the album – a sound that's grittier than some of Jimmy Smith's studio work of the early Blue Note years – and which features him really stretching out on the Hammond, taking close to 10 minutes to run through each tune – and that's saying a lot, given that there's hardly any other soloists! The rest of the group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums – and tracks on this first volume include "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Where Or When", "Rosetta", and "The Preacher".

✨✧ Jimmy SmithBucket ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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

Jimmy SmithJimmy Smith At The Organ Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Good+ ... $11.99
Wonderful early stuff from Jimmy Smith! The album is one of two great sessions that capture Smith in all his youthful prime, playing with other Blue Note greats like Art Blakey, Kenny Burrell, and Lou Donaldson – and nicely constructed tracks that take standard tunes and open them up into a whomping good soul jazz groove, thanks to Jimmy's monster organ playing. The solos are pretty free and gosh darn creative – and titles on this volume include "Summertime", "All Day Long", and "Yardbird Suite". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing with deep groove, RVG etching, and "ear". Cover has heavy wear with wide brown tape along all seams.)

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffStump Juice ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massively funky – and one of Jimmy McGriff's best albums for the Groove Merchant label! The album's follows strongly on the mode of Jimmy's classic Worm album – also produced by Sonny Lester, issued slightly before on the Solid State label. The set's got that stripped-down, hard-n-funky sound that Jimmy used on his best albums from the time – rhythm crackling at the bottom with a really sharp edge, and a lean, clean keyboards soaring over the top in some really mighty solo work – somewhere between James Brown funk and early 70s soundtracks! The drums are great, the tunes are tasty, and Jimmy plays both keyboards and Hammond – with a groove that's always outta site! Titles include the funky "Stump Juice", plus "TNT", "Stretch Me Out", "Pisces", "Cumayon", and "Purple Onion". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear, with a mostly split bottom seam & some tape along the top.)

✨✧ Lee Konitz with Jimmy GiuffreLee Konitz Meets 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

Lou DonaldsonSay It Loud! ... CD
Water/Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $12.99
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

✨✧ Duke EllingtonThis One's For Blanton ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1972. Used ... $6.99
A great tribute to the late bassist Jimmy Blanton – served up by his old boss Duke Ellington, working here on piano alongside the bass of Ray Brown! This spare piano/bass session is a rarity in Duke's catalog – and it's a real later gem that captures the warmth and imagination of the Ellington piano sound in a near-solo setting. Brown's tones are round and nicely soulful – always a treat, even if not entirely in Blanton's spirit – and titles include "Pitter Panther Patter", "Do Nothin Till You Hear From Me", "Sophisticated Lady", "See See Rider", and "Fragmented Suite For Piano & Bass" – a great extended piece that takes up all of side two!

Al GreyGrey's Mood – The Definitive Black & Blue Sessions ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1973/1975. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
The mood may be gray, but the sound here is plenty blue – those deep-toned lines that make trombonist Al Grey one of the most deeply-voiced players on his instrument! The set has Al in a nicely laidback setting – a relaxed, soulful approach that's almost similar to the Prestige Records Swingville sessions of the early 60s – with longish tracks that open up nicely with rhythm from Tommy Flanagan on piano, John Duke on bass, and Bobby Durham on drums. Jimmy Forrest also sits in on tenor, and cuts a nice edge, and adds maybe a bit more of a hardbop vibe. A few other tracks add in a larger group – with Hal Singer on tenor, Clarence Gatemouth Brown on guitar, and a few French players as well – in a vibe that's slightly more upbeat at times. Titles include "Face It Here It Is", "Catch Up With That", "Bedroom Eyes", and "Mellow For Love". CD also features four unissued tracks – "Catch Up With That", "Night Train", "Solitude", and "Shufflin In Orange's Arenes". CD

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used ... $12.99
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". CD

Various500 Atlantic R&B & Soul Singles Vol 1 – 1964/1965 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $48.99
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. First volume features 50 great tracks that include "Baby Girl (part 1)" by Titus Turner, "Please Don't Leave Me" by The Drapels, "That's The Way That It Goes" by Bobby Marchan, "Mary Lou You Can Do The Bumble Bee" by Deanie Parker, "Gotta Find A Way" by Theresa Lindsay, "One More Chance" by Doris Troy, "Daddy Woo Woo" by The Vibrations, "Slumber Party" by The Van Dells, "Someday We're Gonna Love Again" by Barbara Lewis, "Reconsider Baby" by Al King, "Shake Up" by The Cobras, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "That's When It Hurts" by Ben E King, "Don't Make Something Out Of Nothing" by William Bell, "You Never Know How Much I Love You" by Oscar Mack, "Closer To My Baby" by Dorothy Williams, "The Last Girl" by The Isley Brothers, "Don't Leave Me" by The Crume Brothers, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "Take The Boy Out Of The Country" by Linda Jones, "I'm Gonna Run Away From You" by Tami Lynn, "Wild One" by The Coasters, "Yes I Do" by Solomon Burke, "Something In My Eye" by Music City Soul Brothers, "Young Man" by The Drapels, "Watchdog" by Dorothy Williams, "Romance In The Dark" by Jimmy Ricks, "Please Be Honest With Me" by Barbara & The Browns, "I'm Taking Back My Love" by Linda Jones, "Young & Foolish" by Wendy Rene, "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "I Want To Get Married" by Rufus Thomas, "I Left There Running Because Walking Was Much Too Slow" by Chuck Bradford, and "Big Party" by Barbara & The Browns.
