Art BlakeyIndestructible (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
A killer pounding session from Blakey! The record was recorded during Blakey's bright flash of genius in 1964, when the Jazz Messengers were briefly revisited by Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter, with the added horn of Curtis Fuller to add new colors to the group. Cedar Walton's on piano, and his lyrical comping brings the band to new soulful heights. Tracks include "The Egyptian", "Sortie", "Calling Miss Khadija", and "Mr. Jin". CD features the bonus track "It's A Long Way Down", penned by Wayne Shorter. This is the newly remastered version, too – with additional notes and photos. CD

Kyoto Jazz Sextet (Kyoto Jazz Massive)Mission ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $28.99
Kyoto Jazz Massive is on a soulful mission this time around – stepping out on Blue Note with a wonderful tribute to the rich legacy of the label! The music is directed by Shuya Okino, and played by a super-sharp quintet who really recall the genius of Blue Note in the 60s – especially that time when the label was perfectly balanced between modern and hardbop modes, as evidenced by the selection of compositions here by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Henderson! None of the tracks are straight remakes, and there's definitely a fresh, acoustic spin on the rhythms – played by a lineup that includes trumpet, tenor, piano, bass, and drums – plus some guest instrumentation as well. Tracks include the group's own "Eclipse" – plus "Search For The New Land", "Succotash", "The Melting Pot", "Mr Jin", "Jinrikisha", "Up A Step", and "Speak No Evil". CD

OlatunjiDrums Of Passion ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Good+ ... $2.99
A classic session of pounding percussion – quite possibly the most successful entry into this earthy genre that hit the recording scene at the end of the 50s! Babatunde Olatunji is joined here by a great assemblage of players – including Montego Joe and Baba Hawthorne Bey on percussion, who further flesh out the rumbling, rhythmic groove at the bottom. There's also a group of vocalists on the record, soaring over the top of the percussion with a nicely righteous feel – and the record's a key crossover moment that heralds later African expressions in the American mainstream. Titles include "Odun De Odun De", "Oya", "Jin Go Lo Ba", "Baba Jinde", and "Shango". LP, Vinyl record album

Antonio AdolfoFeito Em Casa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artezanal/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A sweet set of 70s fusion tracks from Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! Adolfo's probably best known for his mad work for EMI/Odeon at the start of the 70s, but by this point in the decade, he'd mellowed out a bit, and was focusing on more serious jazz-based recordings – most of which were issued only briefly on the tiny label Artezanal. This rare session features Adolfo on moog, Hammond, and Arp – working with a group that includes Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet, Danilo Caymmi on flute, and some guest vocals by Joyce on one track! The overall sound is electric, but not cloyingly so – a mix of breezy, jazzy, and funky styles that really fit together superbly. Titles include "Chickote", "Venice", "Acalanto", "Feito Em Casa", "Ve", "Virry", "Variacoes", "Beijinho", "Dia De Paz", and "As Luzes Estao Brilhando". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Peter BrotzmannChina Live In Bejing 2011 (CD/DVD) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Musikid/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 2011. New Copy CD & DVD ... $24.99
Just when we've thought we've heard everything Peter Brotzmann has to offer – out comes a record like this, and blows us away all over again! As you'd guess from the title, Brotzmann's working here in a Chinese setting – mixing with younger players we'd never heard before – including Li Tiequiao on alto and Scandinavian spring flute, and Xu Fengxia on zither, sanxian, and voice – a strange style of singing that really makes for an amazing moment on one track! The quartet also features Kristian Mondrup Nielsen on drums – and Brotzmann plays searing tenor, alto, and clarinet – but often changes his phrasing to meet the moods of the younger players – especially at moments when Fengxia is in the forefront. Amazing stuff – and the CD features titles that include "Deciduous Carnival", "Walking In Wu Men", "Beijing Legend", "798 Art District", "Moat", and "Feel As If We Were Visiting Our Country Of Birth". DVD features all these tracks, plus two more! CD

Marion BrownVista ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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". CD

CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around – especially as his music moved into the 70s – but here, he really takes off with some sublime disco arrangements – full clubby grooves that are some of the best Salsoul sounds of the time, yet which still leave plenty of room for Candi's congas! The congas participate in the rhythms at every level – and often take on a nice solo spotlight too – and all tracks are nice and long, with killers that include a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". CD features a massive amount of bonus tracks – more than on the album – with gems from singles that include "Jingo (original 12" version)", "Thousand Finger Man (12" ext version)", "Jingo (Shep Pettibone mix)", "Thousand Finger Man (single)", "Jingo (single)", and "Jingo (inst)".

Djinji BrownAfro Bionic ... CD
Yoruba (UK), 2008. Used ... $3.99
The deepest work so far from Djinji Brown – a set that moves past some of the more hip hop-styled production of the past, and delves much more deeply into the organic style of the Yoruba label! The rhythms are often in an uptempo mode, but have enough acoustic elements to push them away from straight house – the kind of earthy basslines and Latin-styled percussion you might hear in Osunlade's music – done here in really spare, dark sort of ways. Most cuts are pretty stark, but never cold – and titles include "Sweat Shop", "Smile", "Marta's House", "Afro-Tek Theory", "Djinji Calling", and "The Private Dancer". CD

Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+ ... $18.99
One of Joe Henderson's first true moments of greatness – a landmark session recorded with a quintet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums! LaRoca's very free on the drum kit, and gives the set a rhythmic looseness that's a bit of a hint at some of Joe's 70's recordings – and that style's even further supported by Tyner's long flowing lines on piano, and Dorham's sparkling work on the trumpet! Includes the classic reading of Kenny's "Blue Bossa", plus the titles "Recorda-Me", "Jinrikishna", "La Mesha", and "Homestretch". LP, Vinyl record album

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul MediaDosojin (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Vocalist Yasuhsi Sawada joins Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media group this time around – but in a way that seems to create a whole new sound from both artists! The album's got a deeper, more sophisticated style than some of Inagaki's other records – not just funky soul, but a richer suite of tracks that still has plenty of soulful currents, but which also reaches towards some more ambitious emotional territory too – never in a way that's clunky or snoozy, but which takes all the best elements of the Soul Media groove, and pushes them a bit farther too! Sawada's vocals are all in Japanese, and have this very powerful approach – never dominating the music, but moving through the instrumentation in this evocative way that almost feels instrumental to our ears, given our lack of understanding of the language. The whole thing's almost got a spiritual undercurrent, althought the presentation is still more in the groovy mode of other Soul Media sets – and titles include "Sasara", "Tabute", "Kusakai", "Kigishi", "Susomi", and "Inanome".

Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Sealed ... $24.99
A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although Wes played a bit with vibes when working in The Montgomery Brothers, the Jackson approach here is a bit different – more soulful, and a bit more driven on by the rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. Titles include the originals "SKJ", "Blue Roz", "Jingles", and "Sam Sack" – plus versions of "Stairway To The Stars" and "Delilah". LP, Vinyl record album

JellybeanJust Visiting This Planet ... LP
Chrysalis, 1987. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A nice one from producer, songwriter, remixer and pop soul force of nature Jellybean – his first album for Chrysalis! It's actually not as out there and spacey as you'd expect from the title – but there really was no one quite like Jellybean in this planet in the 80s. Former Contortionists singer Adele Bertei sings on half of the record – and it's a pretty sweet and unique mix of pop, soul and dance! Includes "Little Too Good To Me", "Who Found Who", "Just A Mirage", "The Real Thing", "Walking In My Sleep", "Hypnotized By (Your Touch)", "Jingo" and "Am I Dreaming". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Drastic Plastic, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
David Johansen wipes off the lipstick and kicks off his heels for this first solo set –sans drag, we're left with a normal looking dude – and one hell of a great, still glam-sounding record that's right up there in excellence with his New York Dolls canon! Wow, is this ever underrated. David would eventually go on the tweak his style and persona in a bunch of different ways, to varying creative and commercial success. Here he's just out to make a kickass rock and roll record as he'd done with the dolls, sans the wardrobe and junkie hijinks, but with all the blistering rock guitar and gritty R&B influences. This one really blazes! Includes "Funky But Chic", "Girls", "Not That Much", "Donna", "I'm A Lover" and "Frenchette". LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie KingComplete King & Federal Singles ... CD
King/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 26.98
Smoking early work from the legendary Freddie King – most of it recorded during years he had a strong connection to the Chicago electric blues scene, where he really honed his craft to perfection! The work here is definitely blues, but King's vocals bring a soulful inflection to the songs that's undeniable – and although his hard-riffing style would later be copped by countless imitators on later cheesy blues albums, the presentation here is still breathtaking – really raw, and recorded by King with this clear, sharp sound on the guitar that seems to knock out all other elements when Freddie takes a solo! The package is one of the first to really dig deep into these crucial years for King – and brings together 54 tracks all recorded as singles for King Records – complete with full notes, and even information on the original releases too. Titles include "In The Open", "Texas Oil", "Come On", "Just Pickin", "I Hear Jingle Bells", "Hideaway", "Look Ma I'm Cryin", "King A Ling", "Driving Sideways", "Meet Me At The Station", "Monkey Donkey", "Surf Monkey", "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist", and "Manhole".

A huge moment for LL Cool J – and a set that has him balanced nicely between the sharp rhymes of his roots and the rising stardom of his role in the larger world of R&B as well! Marley Marl produced, and the whole thing's still got a nice edge – even though some of these tunes entered the mainstream and got LL quite a bit of play in areas he'd never reached before. Hits include "Around The Way Girl", "Mama Said Knock You Out", "To Da Break Of Dawn", "Jinglin Baby", and "6 Minutes Of Pleasure – and other cuts include "Milky Cereal", "Eat Em Up L Chill", "Mr Good Bar", "The Boomin System", "Cheesy Rat Blues", and "Farmers Blvd". 2CD deluxe edition features 14 more bonus tracks – including "Strictly Business", "Mama Said Knock You Out (hot mix)", "Mama Said Knock You Out (4am mix)", "Mama Said Knock You Out (for steering pleasure)", "Around The Way Girl (Untouchables rmx)", "Around The Way Girl (Crypt 12" mix)", "Around The Way Girl (Jerv's 12" rub)", "Around The Way Girl (Marley rub)", "To Da Break Of Dawn (bug out mix)", "Boomin System (underground rmx)", "6 Minutes Of Pleasure (hey girl rmx)", and "Eat Em Up L Chill (chill rmx)".

Pete RugoloAdventures In Rhythm ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the records that arranger Pete Rugolo cut for Columbia in the years after he parted company with Stan Kenton. As most modern jazz ears will know, Rugolo was one of the main reasons for Kenton's uniquely swinging approach in the early 50s – and he also lent his talents to some fantastic records by June Christy, The Four Freshmen, and other hip vocalists of the time. This side has plenty of Rugolo's modern touches – but manages to swing nicely, spending a bit of time with strange assemblages of instruments and odd phrasings, but also getting back to the groove in time to keep things lively. Titles include "Sambamba", "Here's Pete", "Mixin The Blues", "Rugolo Meets Shearing", "Jingle Bells Mambo", "Good Evening Friends Boogie", "Conversation", and "Bazaar". LP, Vinyl record album

Ok, so you were once embarrassed to have this in your collection – and sold it off so your buddies at college wouldn't make fun of you. Now, though, you treasure it as a crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil Ways", "Savor", "Jingo", "Soul Sacrifice", and "Shades of Time". LP, Vinyl record album

The second Stet LP, with the group repping BK in fine style. There's a fair share of Prince Paul niceness here, and Daddy-O's beats are no slouch either, in case the matching sweatsuits aren't enough to get you open. In the time of rappers cobbling together LPs with mix and match producers, it's nice to look back on groups like Stets that did it all, rhyming, DJing, beatboxing. . . Includes the classic title track, "Talkin' All That Jazz", "Float On", "Sally", "This Is It Y'all (Go Stetsa II)", "Miami Bass", "Pen & Paper", "Miami Bass" and "Music For The Stetfully Insane". CD

Three SoundsBottoms Up! ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Fair ... $4.99
The bottom is certainly "up" on this one – as the Three Sounds groove things from the ground up, taking soul jazz piano to the next level with an approach that quickly made them one of the most popular Blue Note acts of the early 60s! Gene Harris leads the group on piano – and also plays celeste on one track (!) – and the other Sounds at this point are Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums – a really great rhythm section that have a way of being soulfully quiet, with a very subtle groove – one that's much more understated than you might find in the Ramsey Lewis trio, but equally hip. Tracks include "Jinne Lou", "Besame Mucho", "Love Walked In", "Angel Eyes", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Time After Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street pressing with RVG stamp and ear – and deep groove on one side. Vinyl plays with various pops & crackles. Cover has wear, aging and splitting.)
