✨✧ Kyoto Jazz Sextet (Kyoto Jazz Massive)Mission ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Art BlakeyIndestructible ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(80s DMM pressing. Cover has a promo stamp, and a partially removed radio station play count sticker on front.)

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

Big MaybelleGabbin Blues & Other Hits ... LP
Epic, Early 50s. Sealed Gatefold ... $7.99
Pre-"Candy" recordings by Big Maybelle – but still with a similar jazzy blues sound, thanks to work by players like Sam Taylor, Mickey Baker, Ernie Hayes, and Budd Johnson. The LP is a 60s repackaging of early 50s singles – and titles include "Jinny Mule", "Way Back Home", "Gabbin Blues", "Ain't No Use", "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "Don't Leave Poor Me", "Ain't To Be Played With", and "No More Trouble Out Of Me". 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 BrownAfternoon Of A Georgia Faun ... LP
ECM, 1970. Near Mint- ... $18.99
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 a cut corner and some wear.)

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

Lenny BruceReal Lenny Bruce ... LP
Fantasy, Late 50s/1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Very nice 2LP set that brings together some of Lenny's best moments recorded for Fantasy – including many that aren't currently on CD. The album includes the classic "Thank You, Masked Man", plus "Lima Ohio", "Dijinni In the Candy Store", "Comic At The Palladium", "How To Relax Your Colored Friends At parties", and "The Sound". The material is fantastic, and there's a booklet with a great set of notes on Lenny by Ralph Gleason. LP, Vinyl record album

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)".

Stefon HarrisAfrican Tarantella – Dances With Duke ... CD
Blue Note, 2006. Used ... $4.99
A bold new chapter in the career of vibraphonist Stephon Harris – and proof that he's one of the most amazing players of his generation, one who's always growing into new sounds and styles! Despite the "Duke" in the title here, the work isn't a simple homage to the classics of Ellington – and instead, it uses some lesser-known themes by Duke as vehicles for new waves of color, sound, and tone from Harris – scored in the same soulful way as his brilliant work on Grand Unification Theory from a few years back. The style here is hardly Ellington, and is more a shimmering mix of small combo jazz and strings – headed up mostly by Harris' vibes and marimba, but also featuring Steve Turre on trombone, Anne Drummond on flute, Greg Tardy on clarinet, and Xavier Davis on piano. 3 tracks here are from Harris' own The Gardner Meditations – "Memoirs Of A Frozen Summer", "African Tarantella", and "Dancing Enigma" – and Ellington titles include "Thanks For The Beautiful Land On The Delta", "Portrait Of Wellman Braud", "Bourbon Street Jingling Jollies", "Single Petal Of A Rose", and "Sunset & The Mocking Bird".

Joe HendersonPage One (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
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

In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
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

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. Very Good ... $9.99
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

Blue Sky, 1978. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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 glammy sounding record that's right up there in excellence with his New York Dolls canon! Wow, is this ever underrated. David would 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

LL Cool JMama Said Knock You Out (3D lenticular cover pressing) ... LP
Def Jam, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
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".

Toshiko & Charlie MarianoToshiko Mariano & Her Big Band Recorded In Tokyo ... LP
Vee Jay, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
Killer rare jazz material from Japan! Toshiko Akioshi was one of Japan's greatest jazz musicians, and in the late 50s she came to the US, made her name, and married alto great Charlie Mariano. At some point in the early 60s, they moved back to Japan and had a rich influence on the jazz scene in Tokyo – as is ably demonstrated by this LP! The album's a fantastic set of large group arrangements by Toshiko and Charlie – and the soloists (besides the two of them) include some of Japan's greatest players, like Sleepy Matsumoto and Shigeo Suzuki. Just to make sure the whole thing swings, there's rhythm by an American duo of Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb, and believe us, they do everything they can to kick the group hard! We've loved this one for years. Nice titles include "The Shout", "Israel", "Land Of Peace", and "Kisarazu Jink". A key piece in US/Japan jazz relations, and a swingin' batch of hard jazz tracks to boot! LP, Vinyl record album

Wes MontgomeryWes Montgomery Quartet Live In Belgium 1965 ... CD
Gambit (Spain), 1965. Used ... $12.99
Rare work from Wes Montgomery – captured here not just live in Belgium – but also in London and Hamburg as well! The first 10 tracks on the set are from rare TV show performances from Belgium and London in 1965 – and feature Wes grooving with his same combo from the famous Paris recordings from the same year – Harold Mabern on piano, Art Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums. Mabern's presence is especially great, as he gives the tunes a flowing grace that seems to bring out a new spirit in Wes – and the recordings have a joyously dancing feel that's really wonderful. Titles include "The Boy Next Door", "Impressions", "Twisted Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Jingles", and "Full House". The remaining 4 tracks on the CD are from another 1965 European date – but one recorded live in Hamburg with a group that includes Martial Solal on piano, Michel Gaudry on bass, and Ronnie Stephenson on drums – plus a bit of tenor on one track from Johnny Griffin. Solal's piano has a bit of a darker edge than Mabern's here – and the tracks are noticeably longer, with really free-flowing solos from Wes. Titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Twisted Blues", "Blue Monk", and "Four On Six". CD
