✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues". CD

Anglo Saxon BrownSongs For Evolution (with bonus track) ... CD
Atlantic/ (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Tremendous work from Anglo Saxon Brown – a Philly group who started out their recording career as Ujima on Epic, where they issued a handful of well-remembered singles – then changed their name and cut this one and only full length set for Atlantic! The album's a stunner all the way through – one of those sets that should have been much bigger at the time – and which, like the Ujima singles, has only gotten the group more and more attention over the years – as collectors and DJs have spread the word about its sublime soul sound! These guys are big – as you'd guess from the image on the cover – but they've got a tightness that's made even better by the Sigma Sound recording of the set – which merges their smooth blend of male voices and a female singer with some classic 70s Philly sounds. The album excels on both mellow cuts and groovers – and is still plenty darn fresh after all these years – a real under-discovered gem! The "Call On Me" is a nice smooth stepper, in a mellow pace that we really like – and "ASB Theme" and "The Grizzly" are some good funky club cuts – and other tracks include "Gonna Make You Mine", "Straighten It Out", "I'll Keep Lovin You", and "The Man I Love". Also features a bonus single edit of "Straighten It Out". CD

Marion BrownVista ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1975. Near Mint- ... $18.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

James Luther DickinsonDixie Fried ... LP
Atlantic/Future Days, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
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.

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireIllumination ... CD
Sanctuary, 2005. Used ... $2.99
Earth Wind & Fire's most ambitiously orchestrated records of recent years – one that pairs the legendary funk/soul/pop collective with contemporary players such as Will I Am of Black Eyed Peas, Raphael Saadiq, Floetry, Big Boi of Outkast, Sleepy Brown and others! Believe us, we were as skeptical as the rest of you when this project first materialized, so it's really a wonderful surprise to report that it works very well! The album is essentially a modern, uptempo neo soul effort by a group that just happens to be legendary – with clean vocals and horns by the group, and warm production by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Will I Am and Raphael Saadiq. It may not be a classic on par with the 70s work, but it's easily the best Earth Wind & Fire album in at least a decade! Tracks include "Lovely People" feat Will I Am, "Show Me The Way" feat Raphael Saadiq, "Work It Out", "Elevated People" feat Floetry, "Pass You By", "Pure Gold" and more! 13 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Jimmy Giuffre 3Easy Way ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $4.99
The Easy Way? Jimmy Giuffre never did anything the easy way – and his classic albums from the late 50s, some of the strongest modern jazz sides of the time, are a great testament to that fact! This album's one of the most obscure – and features Jimmy in his groundbreaking percussion-less trio mode – blowing tenor, clarinet, and baritone in a group with Jim Hall on guitar and Ray Brown on bass. The notes hang magically in air – still quite rhythmic, despite the freedom of the setting, but also stretching forth in an unfettered style that set the stage for countless jazz experiments to come. Titles include "Montage", "Time Enough", "Off Center", "A Dream", "Ray's Time", and "Careful". CD

Jerry GoldsmithTake A Hard Ride ... CD
20th Century/La La Land, 1975. New Copy ... $19.99
A moody western soundtrack – scored by Goldsmith for this 1975 film that starred Jim Brown, Fred Williamson, and Jim Kelly! The music does a really great job of displacing these three from their usual blacksploitation action roles – going for a dreamy sort of approach to the western, one that's clearly inspired by Italian composers of the late 60s spaghetti genre, but which also shares some of the orchestral touches of Goldsmith's other work. Goldsmith was really at the height of his powers during the 70s – and the depth and subtlety of this score is a good illustration of his best strengths – quite different than you might expect. Titles include "Work Camp", "The Wagon", "The Big Dive", "The Hunter", "Fancy Footwork", and "A Sad Story". CD

✨✧ Johnny HodgesSmooth One (previously unreleased) ... LP
Verve, 1959/1960. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A rare treat – 2LPs worth of material by Johnny Hodges, recorded at the end of the 50s, but never issued until this late 70s set! The first disc features a 1959 session, with players that include Harold Baker, Quentin Jackson, Ben Webster, Jimmy Hamilton, and Jo Jones – accompanying Hodges on some shorter tracks that include a good number of original titles, including "Second Klass", "Straight Back", "First Klass", "Third Klass", and "Nite Life". Disc two continues the Ellington-inflected mode, with players that include Baker, Hamilton, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, and Harold Ashby – on slightly longer titles that include "Get Ready", "Peaches", "Hygiene", "Starting With You", "I Told You So", and "Wiggle Awhile".

Blue Note, 1953. Very Good+ ... $14.99
First volume of the two LP set that compiled JJ's bop trombone sides for Blue Note. Great stuff, and arguably among some of his best work. The arrangements are tight, and JJ's in the company of great rhythm players like Kenny Clarke, Horace Silver, and Paul Chambers, who make the sessions really swing. Soloists include Clifford Brown and Jimmy Heath, and the tracks include "Turnpike", "Sketch 1", "Capri", "Lover Man", "Get Happy", and "Coffee Pot". LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel LewisAll My Yesterdays – The Debut 1966 Village Vanguard Recordings ... CD
Resonance, 1966. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99 29.98
The birth of a legend – documented here in a really wonderful package – a brilliant 2CD set that brings forth the first-ever recordings of the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra – heard here on the debut nights of their very long run of Monday night performances at the Village Vanguard! Right from the start, this group was really something special – formed by the meeting of two legendary talents, trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis – and driven strongly by a lineup of all-star players who were happy to shelve their egos this night of the week, and come together in a unit that was far more than just the sum of its amazing parts. Players on these two nights include Hank Jones on piano, Richard Davis on bass, Jimmy Owens and Bill Berry on trumpets, Bob Brookmeyer and Garnett Brown on trombones, and Jerome Richardson, Joe Farrell, Pepper Adams, and Jerry Dodgion on a flurry of amazing reed performances – producing the kinds of insane colors and edges the group was always known for! This isn't big band jazz – at least not the sort you'd think of with cliche – and instead, the recordings document the meeting of amazing talents creating effortlessly together under the leadership of two generous giants. The package is wonderful, really a tribute to this amazing music – oversized, and with a huge booklet of notes and photos – and 2CDs with titles that include "Back Bone", "Big Dipper", "Mornin Reverend", "Little Pixie", "All My Yesterdays", "Once Around", "Ah That's Freedom", and "Don't Ever Leave Me".

The legendary album by the third star in the original Native Tongues trinity! Before the first De La and Tribe LPs, and with hint of all the great stuff that was to come – jazzy beats, nice rhymes,and straight butter all the way through. This double vinyl version includes a bonus track that was not originally on the first LP release – "The Promo" featuring a verse from Q-Tip, his first-ever appearance on wax, a full year before the first Tribe Called Quest single. Tracks include "On the Run", "Straight Out the Jungle", "Black Is Black", "Braggin & Boastin", "Behind The Bush", "Because I Got It Like That", "I'll House You", and "Jimbrownski".

Dave Lambert/John HendricksSing Along & Swing Along With Dave Lambert/Evolution Of The Blues Song ... CD
United Artists/El (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Quite possibly the only full album ever recorded as a solo act by Dave Lambert, the vocalist that we know and love from the team of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but who's also a heck of a great singer on his own! As you may know from the group, Dave's got a slightly quirky vocal approach that warbles with the honesty of a good horn solo – a style that we might rank next to Bob Dorough's in its appeal, except for the fact that Dave, like his fellow members in the trio, has a much greater jazz-based quality – and on some of the tunes here, he improvises wonderfully and inflects the tunes in really unique ways. Players on the album aren't credited, but it sounds like it's probably Gildo Mahones on piano backing Dave up – and titles include 2 great wordless numbers titled "Blues" and "Short Blues Around The Broadway Bridge" – plus the tunes "Over The Weekend", "Autumn Nocturne", "All Alone", "Yesterdays", and "We Could Make Such Beautiful Music". Evolution Of The Blues, an early concept album from the great Jon Hendricks – one that tells the story of blues through jazz – all put together as a flowing story in music! Jon speaks and sings the whole tale – but also gets some help on vocals from Big Miller, Hanna Dean, and Jimmy Witherspoon – as well as great musical backing from the core Ike Isaac Trio, with solos by Pony Poindexter and Ben Webster! The music is mostly rooted in blues, but with a hipper jazz sensibility – almost in the way that Oscar Brown Jr and others were going back to the roots, but updating them for the 60s. Titles include "WPA Blues", "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child", "New Orleans", "If I Had My Share", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Please Send Me Someone To Love". CD

Jimmy McGriffGroove Grease ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A nice bit of funky organ work from Jimmy McGriff! The record's recorded with a slightly larger than usual band – but that's a good thing here, as players like Horace Ott, Cliff Davis, Richard Evans, and Everett Barksdale provide a strong bouncy groove, which Jimmy uses to solo over the top with some lean, mean funky Hammond solos! The album's got some excellent stone funky classics – like "The Bird", "Groove Grease", and "Plain Brown Bag" – plus some surprisingly funky readings of standards like "Canadian Sunset" and "Mr Lucky", both made to sound super-nice, thanks to excellent work on bass and drums!

Jimmy RushingEssential Jimmy Rushing ... CD
Vanguard, 1954/1955. Used ... $3.99
Vocalist Jimmy Rushing first came to fame working with Count Basie in the 30s, but it wasn't until the 50s that he really got the chance to step out on his own and cut a number of great sessions in the studio! This set features one of Jimmy's finest moments of the 50s – material recorded for Vanguard Records in 1954 and 1955, respectively, and featuring Rushing in the company of great small group trad players like Buddy Tate, Pat Jenkins, Emmett Berry, Lawrence Brown, and Freddie Green. The format is laidback and simple on both records – a style that clearly hearkens back to the Kansas City swing of the 30s, but which is delivered here with a more stripped-down approach that lets us focus even more on Rushing's earthy vocal presentation. Titles include the original tracks "Good Morning Blues", "Take Me Back Baby", "Sent For You Yesterday", and "Goin To Chicago" – plus versions of "How Long", "See See Rider", "Evenin". CD

Pee Wee RussellAsk Me Now! ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
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

Sly & RobbieUnmetered Taxi – Sly & Robbie's Taxi Productions ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1980s. Used ... $12.99
Earthshaking bass and percolating drums keep this superb set rockin' in fine style! Well known as the lynch pin to so many great rhythms cut from the 70s onward, Sly & Robbie's reputation as one of Jamaica's baddest rhythm sections precedes them. This compilation focuses on tracks produced by the Rhythm Twins, and issued on their Taxi label at the cusp of the 80s, one of numerous peaks in their lengthy career. 22 tracks in all, essential numbers issued here with their mighty instrumental versions: "Baltimore" and "Real Love" by The Tamlins, "Rocky Music" by Struggle, "Tickle Me" by Thrilla, "Shine Eye Gal" by Black Uhuru, "Old Broom" by the Wailing Souls, "Amblique" by Taxi featuring Brian and Tony Gold, "Love and Devotion" by Jimmy Riley, "Revolution (dub plate Version)" and "Revolution" by Dennis Brown and "Heart Made Of Stone" by The Viceroys plus "Baltimore Version", "Rocky Music dub", "Real Love Version", "Tickle Me Version", "Shine Eye Version", "Drunken Master (Love and Devotion Version)", "Revolution Version", "Unmetered Taxi", "Unmetered Taxi Version", "Old Broom Version" and "Heart Made Of Stone Version". As usual, excellent notes and nice package from Pressure Sounds make this set complete! CD

Sonny Stitt's work for Verve was some of his best on record – and this album is a perfect illustration of that bold claim! Sonny's blowing here in a wonderful style – a bit more restrained than on his early bop sides, more complicated than on his later soul jazz sessions, and all together totally solid, totally in-the-pocket – with not a note out of place, nor a moment of superfluous blowing on the set. Stitt's extremely confident here – dominating the intimate quartet setting with lots of fire, warmth, and imagination. The rhythm section includes Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Ray Brown on bass – and tracks include "Sonny's Tune", "Down Home Blues", "Alone Together", and "Norman's Blues". CD

Thrill Jockey, 1990s/2000s. Used 3CD&DVD ... $28.99
A massive collection of Tortoise rarities – including work from non-US releases, tour-only EP material, compilation tracks and more – plus the long out-of-print, heavily sought after Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters remix album – all at a great price! You really couldn't ask for a better collection of errata from the celebrated group. It features some of the best work the collective and individual members (Jeff Parker ('97-present), John Herndon, John McEntire, Doug McCombs, Dan Bitney, David Pajo ('95-'97) and Bundy Brown ('91-'94)) have ever done! Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters – featuring adventurous re-imaginings by such a diverse roster as Casey Rice, Steve Albini, Brad Wood, Jim O'Rourke and Mike Watt – is possibly the face value boon of the collection given it's known "legendary lost" status, but pretty much everything here is just as tough to find, if not literally impossible! The set contains 3CDs and a DVD, which features most of Tortoise's music videos and extensive rare live performance footage. Frankly, we'd have paid $20 just for a CD single with "Gamera", and that's just the kick off track on disc 1! Other tracks on disc 1 include "Blackbyrd", "Sex For Elizabeth", "To Day Retrieval", "Whitewater", "Autumn Sweater", "A Grape Dope", "Blue Station" and more. Disc 2 includes "Madison Area", "TNT (Nobukazu Takemura remix)", "Why We Fight", "CTA", "Adverse", Cliff Dweller Society" and more. Disc 3 (Rhythms, Resolutions And Clusters) includes the tracks "Alcohall", "Your New Rod", "Cobwebbed", "The Match Incident", "Tin Cans", "Not Quite East Of The Ryan", "Cornpone Brunch" and more. DVD includes the videos for "Salt The Skies", "Dear Grandma And Grandpa", "Seneca", and more, plus live footage from Toronto in '96, the Deutches Jazz Festival in '99, Chic-A-Go-Go in '05 and the Burn To Shine project in '04.
