VariousLater Jin Singles – The Promised Land ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Jin Records was a powerhouse of Louisiana music from the moment the company first hung up its shingle – a showcase for the unusual sort of blend that was happening down in the swampy state – from rockabilly groovers, to raw rockers and early zydeco too – a legacy so strong, it kept on turning out wonderful music even in the label's later years! The early Jin sound has been well documented elsewhere, but this collection does an excellent job of showing the continued growth of Louisiana music in the 60s – especially the sounds that developed away from New Orleans, where strands of regional styles kept on changing, and came across with a mighty nice blend like this. Titles include "No Good Woman" by Rockin Sidney, "The Promised Land" by Johnnie Allan, "I'm Not Ashamed" by Margo White, "Opelousas Sostan" by Rufus Jagneaux, "Pont Breaux" by Johnnie Allan, "Try Me" by Clint West, "Take Her Back" by Skip Stewart, "Living In A Dream" by Kenny Tibbs, and "Growing Old" by Billy Lewis. 26 tracks in all!

Art BlakeyIndestructible ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. Very Good ... $49.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Masahiko Sato & Wolfgang DaunerPianology ... LP
Far East/Victory, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Two incredible pianists – both working here with an amazing sense of freedom, on a record that really brings out the best in both musicians! Wolfgang Dauner is possibly better known for his psych and fusion outings, but he's also a hell of a free jazz acoustic player too – and really opens up in the company of Masahiko Sato – who himself seems to maybe absorb a bit more of the wit of Dauner, as the pair shape these amazing sounds together, all with a musicality that's rare for a meeting of two talents in such a free setting! Ego seems very much put aside, and there's a yearning for tunefulness, even amidst the freedom – and at a few points, one of the players (probably Dauner) handles a bit of Fender Rhodes, which makes for a nice contrast. Titles include "Everything", "They Got Rhythm Too", "For Chinatsu & Regina", "Jin Juppo Kai", and "Thousand Summers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Orchestra BaobabNight At Club Baobab – Senegalese Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club Baobab, and often done in a looser, more open mode than some of their better-known sessions – a perfect setting for the complicated rhythms, snakey horn parts, and soulful vocals that emerge as the set moves on! A few tracks here get nice and funky – funkier than even we would have expected from the group – and others maintain a compellingly creative sound that really keeps things interesting, with plenty of exotic overtones and otherworldly styles! The whole thing's great – way more than just a collection of 70s Afro Funk, and a record that's nicely links up the worlds of both Fela and Mulatu through its creative interplay of sounds. CD features 13 tracks that include "Jin Ma Jin Ma", "Souleymane", "Saf Mana Dem", "Kelen Ati Leen", "Seeri Koko", "Liti Liti", "Dirarabi", "On Verra", "Cabral", "Wango", "Sey", and "Yolanda". CD

✨✧ OlatunjiDrums Of Passion ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's a great break at the beginning of this one – the kind that you'd be more likely to find in the middle of a tune, as a breakdown – but which almost makes this one feel like you're starting out with the funkier "part 2" of the tune! The cut's an instrumental with some heavy horns that blow in once it gets going – somewhere in a space between 70s Afro Funk and The JBs! "MTA" has some nice trippy bits on the guitar at the beginning – and a snapping rhythm to start the whole thing out, ala "Time Is Tight" – before the moody horns come in and make the whole thing their own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Satin Chaps, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A pair of special Christmas tunes – pressed together here on a groovy red vinyl 45! "Hey Mrs Santa Claus" is kind of a swinging number with a jazzy vibe – vocals from Tony Starlight in an old lounge singer mode, and backing from The Satin Chaps in a romping blend of guitar, horns, and even a bit of chimes! "Jupiter Jingle" is an instrumental from the Apollo Four – kind of a twangy tune with a 60s surf guitar vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousJingle Bell Swing ... CD
Sony, 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not much of a cover, but a really great little CD – one that's filled with a host of wonderful jazz and vocal Holiday tunes! The set features mostly 60s Christmas jazz numbers – a good deal of which appeared on the classic Jingle Bell Jazz album, still one of the best Holiday jazz albums ever – and the package also features a few bits from other years too, older tracks from the 40s and 50s that still keep a unified spirit in the set. Titles include the wonderful "Blue Xmas" by Miles Davis with Bob Dorough on vocals, plus "Deck Us All With Boston Charlie" by Lambert Hendricks & Ross, "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by Pony Poindexter, "Winter Wonderland" by Tony Bennett, "O Christmas Tree" by Russell Malone, "Sugar Rum Cherry" and "Jingle Bells" by Duke Ellington, "Deck The Halls" by Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea, "Snowfall" by Glen Miller, "The Christmas Song" by Carmen McRae, "Twas The Night Before Christmas" by Art Carney, and "Shake Hands With Santa Claus" by Louis Prima.

Pearl BaileySings For Adults Only ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless! The tunes themselves are a bit "blue" in terms of subject matter – tales of girls with hot pants, loose love, and the kind of backroom hijinks that weren't always talked about so freely in the torch singer era. But given the time, and the setting, the tunes are still pretty soft on the subjects – and get the themes across through clever turns of phrase, slight innuendo, and just the right intonation at the right time – a style that makes Pearl Bailey perfect for the work! Titles include "I Want A Man", "She Had To Go & Lose It At The Astor", "The Physician", "Josephine", "Zip", "Flings", "You Can Be Replaced" and "Legalize My Name". LP, Vinyl record album

Marion BrownAfternoon Of A Georgia Faun ... LP
ECM, 1970. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Marion Brown's more ambitious albums – and a key bridge from his freer work of the late 60s, to his more contemplative sides of the early 70s. The instrumentation on the set's a bit more expanded than on other Brown albums – with saxes by Anthony Braxton and Bennie Maupin, piano and percussion by Chick Corea, percussion by Andrew Cyrille, and voice by Jeanne Lee and Gayle Palmore. At times, the setting gets a bit cluttered, and obscures Brown's soulful tone a bit too much – but at others, the whole thing comes off well. Titles include "Djinji's Corner" and "Afternoon Of A Georgia Faun". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Marion BrownVista ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
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

✨✧ CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $4.99
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)".

Wes Montgomery5 Original Albums (Trio/Incredible Jazz Guitar/Movin Along/So Much Guitar/Boss Guitar) (5CD set) ... CD
Riverside/Universal (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $24.99
5 classic albums from guitarist Wes Montgomery – all packaged together in tiny LP-styled sleeves! The Trio album is Wes Montgomery's first album as a leader – a relatively obscure set that has him playing in a trio with Indianapolis bandmates Mel Rhyne on organ and Paul Parker on drums – a mode that strongly recalls Montgomery's roots in the Indy scene at the time!. The groove is straight and simple, but the real charm is Wes' chromatic lines on guitar – already quite distinctive among his contemporaries, and allowed ample room to express their voice in this setting. Titles include "Ecorah", "Missile Blues", "Too Late Now", "Jingles", and "Whisper Not". Incredible Jazz Guitar is a very fitting title – because the set was only Wes Montgomery's second album as a leader, he was already making plenty of waves with the sound of his guitar! The session lines Wes up with the very tight rhythm team of Tommy Flanagan on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – all of whom lay back and mostly let Wes take center stage – sparkling on a number of original tunes that include "West Coast Blues", "Mister Walker", and "D Natural Blues". Other tracks include a great fast take on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin", plus "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams". Movin Along features Wes Montgomery with a bit of sax and flute – a nice change from the sound of some of his other early records, thanks to key work on the set from James Clay! Clay plays mostly flute on the record, but does so with a hard edge that reminds us of Frank Wess' work from the same stretch – really bringing a raspy edge to the record, and seeming to bring out the same in Wes' guitar work. The rest of the group includes Victor Feldman on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include the nice groover "Movin' Along", plus "So Do It", "Sandu", "Tune Up", and "Says You". The next album is So Much Guitar – but never too much, given that Wes was the real master of sound and space, even at this early point in his career! The album's one that tries to break Montgomery from some of his smaller combo albums for Riverside, and pair him with a few bigger names – Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Lex Humphries on drums, and Ray Barretto on congas – who gives the album that bottom "kick" sort of groove that was used often on soul jazz sessions from the time. The tune's lope around leanly and cleanly, giving plenty of focus on Wes' work on guitar – and titles include "Twisted Blues", "Repetition", "Somethin' Like Bags", and "While We're Young", which is a solo track by Wes. Boss Guitar is a session that's got a gritty edge that takes Wes back to his Indianapolis roots! The album's one of the few of the time to feature the unsung Hammond hero Mel Rhyne – a player who worked with Wes at his start, but has only gotten stronger acclaim in recent decades as part of his comeback. Rhyne's a key force in the record – working alongside Montgomery's guitar and the drums of Jimmy Cobb – in a loose, open trio that has Mel participating as strongly in the rhythms as he does in the solo side of the album. Titles include a few Montgomery originals – "The Trick Bag" and "Fried Pies" – plus the tunes "Besame Mucho", "Dearly Beloved", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Canadian Sunset", "The Breeze & I", and "For Heaven's Sake".

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryBBC Jazz 625 – 1965 (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
BBC/SSJ (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic lost slice of work from guitarist Wes Montgomery – rare British broadcasting recordings done in the year of 1965 – during a European tour that gave us some other material by Wes over the years! This collection features the guitar genius in two different performances – one in March of 1965, with an American group that features Harold Mabern on piano, Arthur Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums – the second from two months later, with a British backing combo that includes the great Stan Tracey on piano, plus Rick Laird on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums. The Mabern material is great – with a familiar feel to other live tour tracks from that stretch – and the Tracey sides maybe have a surprising sort of edge, and even some of the chromes that would show up more during the late Verve and CTI years. Titles include "Full House", "Four On Six", "Twisted Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Yesterdays", and "Jingles". CD

Barbara RuskinLittle Of This – The Barbara Ruskin Songbook ... CD
President (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $3.99 15.98
A dreamy collection of work by Barbara Ruskin – a lesser-known girl singer from the 60s Brit scene, but one who's fast rising to the top of our list with her work on this great set! Barbara's got a style that's similar to, but a bit different than that of contemporaries like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – because (as you'd guess from the acoustic guitar on the cover), Barbara's got a bit more of an influence from folk music – and as her recordings progress, she picks up some nice trippier elements that expand her sound past the usual UK girl pop mode, into a headier style that we really love. There's plenty of jingle-jangle in the mix here – and the CD's extremely well done, with the kind of notes and images we'd expect from Sanctuary or Cherry Red! Titles include "Pawnbroker Pawnbroker", "Light Of Love", "Euston Station", "Song Without End", "On South Street", "Information", "Almost", "You Can't Blame A Girl For Trying", "The 24th Day Of July", "The Loneliest Word In The World", and "Yesterday's Coffee".

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
