✨✧ Art BlakeyIndestructible (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... $5.99
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". 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

✨✧ James LastVoodoo Party/Well-Kept Secret ... CD
Polygram/Vocalion (UK), 1972/1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 70s cookers from James Last – both from a time when he was putting a lot of funk into his music! Voodoo Party is a wicked mix of older exotic modes and tighter 70s production – almost in the same style as some of the great Mandingo records from the period, but with perhaps a bit more soul and funk than all-out African influences! Still, there's plenty of rootsy percussion at the bottom – lots of congas and other bits you'd never expect to hear usually from James Last – and a great batch of cuts that includes "Sing A Simple Song", "Heyah Masse Ga", "Mammy Blue", "Jin Go Lo Ba", "Mr Giant Man", "Everbody's Everything", "Everyday People", and "Voodoo Lady's Love". Well Kept Secret is one of the coolest records ever from James Last – a mid 70s American session, done with styles that are a fair bit different than his other work! Unlike the brassy, bouncing styles of Last's previous records, this one's nicely funky, soulful, and almost a bit laidback at times – filled with great keyboard lines from Larry Muhoberac, who also helped arranged the album with Last and Wes Farrell. The sound is great all the way through – sounding much more like a Kudu/CTI sort of session than Last's European dates on Polydor – and there's a nice jazz component to the music too, thanks to contributions from Ernie Watts on sax, Tom Scott on flute, and Bobby Bryant on trumpet. Titles include the great mellow groover "I Can't Move No Mountains", plus "Love For Sale", "Question", "Theme From Prisoner Of Second Avenue", "Jubilation", and "Summertime". CD

Lionel HamptonYou Better Know It !!! ... CD
Impulse/GRP, 1964. Used ... $5.99
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and which is traditional, but never too staid or too "easy" in its choices. The set benefits from some really strong horn work from Clark Terry on trumpet and Ben Webster on tenor – the latter of whom really crackles out with a great sound here. Other players include Milt Hinton on bass, Hank Jones on piano, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's also a very slight bit of vocalizing on the record as well. Titles include "Tempo's Birthday", "Vibraphone Blues", "Trick Or Treat", "Cute", "Swingle Jingle", and "Taste Of Honey". CD

✨✧ Joe HendersonPage One (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $3.99
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". CD

✨✧ Ice CubePredator ... CD
Priority/Lench Mob, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cube's last truly great full length, from 1992, when he was leaving the gangsta stuff behind and had grown into an incredibly sharp social commentator and ghetto portrait painter. The rhymes, and even the liner note acknowledgements ("Ice Cube wishes to acknowledge white America's continued commitment to the silence and oppression of black men. . .") are wickedly incisive to this day. This could be his finest hour. Includes the singles "It Was A Good Day", "Check Yo Self" and "Wicked", "Gangsta's Fairytale 2", "Dirty Mack" and "Now I Gotta Wet'cha". Production by DJ Pooh, Muggs, Sir Jinx, and others. CD

✨✧ Toshiko & Charlie MarianoToshiko Mariano & Her Big Band Recorded In Tokyo ... CD
Vee Jay/Blue Moon (Spain), 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 CD! 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, and we're extra-happy to have it on CD. 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! CD

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryWes Montgomery Trio (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Riverside (Japan), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ EminemMarshall Mathers LP ... CD
Interscope/Aftermath, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
Eminem's 2nd LP, where the sh*it REALLY hits the fan. What's still striking and genuinely exciting about this record, which is hardly worth even describing considering the mountains of opinions, protests, and moral grand standing, is Em's willingness to keep instigating the people he offended. Throughout the years it seems that all of the hugely controversial pop artists backed off a little or explained themselves when things got out of hand. Rappers like Ice T and 2 Live Crew, and rockers like Marilyn Manson all made appearances on talk shows, to at least defend their artistic expression when they were accused by conservatives and/or liberal thought police. Eminem saw what was happening, and reacted by sinking bigger bait, which of course hooked meatier targets – the most amusing of which came from overrated VH1 celebrity gadfly/commercial jingle composer Moby, and Lynn freakin' Cheney of all people. Very impressive, Slim. Oh yeah, he raps, too. Includes the tracks "Kill You", the mega singles "The Real Slim Shady" & "Stan", "Remember Me", "I'm Back", "Drug Ballad", and more. CD

✨✧ Pozo-Seco SingersTime For The Pozo-Seco Singers – The Complete 1966 Recordings (I Can Make It With You/Time) ... CD
Columbia/Rev-Ola (UK), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Groovy work from the Pozo-Seco Singers – a cool pop folk trio, and one who paved the way for Sunshine Pop to come! The first album on the set is the completely catchy I Can Make It With You – a set that has the group taking on a number of familiar folk tunes of the time, plus some lesser-known gems – all with their warm blend of one gal and two guy singers, and set to some acoustic guitar lines that create a jingly-jangly sort of feel. Titles include "I Can Make It With You", "Changes", "Johnny", "If I Were A Carpenter", "Mary Jenkins", "Forget His Name", and "Blue Eyes". Next up is the album Time – also from 1966, and featuring a slightly more introspective sound – one that has the trio almost sounding a bit more country at times, yet still not in a traditional sort of way. The Pozo-Seco sound is light years from the Peter Paul & Mary approach – thanks especially to some great vocals from Don Williams, whose depth really offsets the lighter style of Susan Taylor – almost with a country touch at times. Titles include "I'll be Gone", "She Understands Me", "House Of The Rising Sun", "It Ain't Worth The Lonely Road Back", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", and "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Louisiana Man" and "I Believed It All". CD

✨✧ VariousDjinji Brown Presents Uncle Junior's Friday Fish Fry – The Market ... CD
Uncle Junior Recordings, 1970s/2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky grooves, old and new – and a really great set that manages to effortlessly trip through time and place in search of a hot little tune! There's an earthy rhythm to most of these numbers, and the set's awash in some classic 70s funk and Latin tunes, set next to newer tracks that were clearly inspired by the older ones – and which manage to borrow their influence without sanding things down too much. The sound's got a righteous trans-global sort of feel – similar to recent work in the Spiritual Life mode – and titles include "O Mi Shango" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Belt Jones" by Dennis Coffey, "Rock Wit You (Osunlade's Yoruba soul mix)" by Jazzy Jeff and Erro, "Transcend Me" by Afronaught, "Noche Cubana" by Totico, "Crofs (slum dub)" by Gregory Isaacs, "Don't Take Your Love From Me" by Marion Brown, "Isto E Samba (No Comment mix)" by Grupo Batuque, "Blue Hunny (roots in the jungle mix)" by Djinji Brown, "African Battle" by Manu Dibango, and "Sands Of Time" by Vinia Mojica.
