Ikebe Shakedown/Jive TurkeysNo Answer ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2010. New Copy ... $5.99
A split single from a pair of the sharp neo classic funk combos on the Colemine label – the Afro funk steeped Brooklyn crew Ikebe Shakedown and midwestern raw funk revivalists The Jive Turkeys – each taking a turn on the Ikebe Shaketown cut "No Answer"! Ikebe Shakedown's version also appears on their more than solid Hard Steppin EP, one of the more simmering numbers on that set with a measured, but no less funky approach with real heat! The Jive Turkeys do it raw, fast and floor shaking with some wicked organ grooves, heavy drums, a killer bass groove and scratchy guitar. A very cool dual purpose funk approach by the 2 groups! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jive FiveI'm A Happy Man – The UA Album Plus Bonus Singles (Jive Five Featuring Eugene Pitt) ... CD
United Artists/Shout (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album of group soul – recorded by indie label favorites The Jive Five, and just about their only album for a big label. Horace Ott produced and arranged, and he nicely takes the group's earlier doo wop style into a 60s harmony groove – adding in some arrangements that have a bit more of a kick and a northern groove, and helping the group come up with some tasty little numbers filled with hooks and riffs that let them still show off their vocal skills. Titles include "I'm A Happy Man", "Prove Every Word You Say", "I Remember When", "Hang On The Corner", "A Bench In The Park", "Falling Tears", and "Ha Ha". This great Shout UK CD edition includes 6 bonus singles: "In My Neighborhood", "Then Came Heart Break", "You Promised Me Great Things", "You" and the Eugene Pitt numbers "Why Why Why" and "Another Rainy Day".

✨✧ Jive TurkeysBread & Butter ... LP
Colemine, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Organ funk from the midwest scene – raw, tightly grooving instrumentals and the first full length release from Ohio's Jive Turkeys – numbers that sounds right in step with the 70s instro funk of The Meters and the best of the contemporary indie funk scenes! The group is a four piece – organ, drums, bass and guitar – keeping it simple, raw and funky. As hinted at on the on the couple of the stellar 45s that led up to Bread & Butter, they work well in both a slower cooking, Booker T indebted groove or a fast & furious,post-JBs style. Simple, straight up funky soul instrumentals is the order of the day, and these Jive Turkeys bring it! Titles include "Funky Turkey", "JT Strut", "Soul High", "Chickenfoot", "Straight Fire", "Bill Collector", "Stamp", "Funky Brewster", "Talkin' That Talk", "Grimmin", "BA" and "Otis Lament".

PigbagDr Heckle & Mr Jive ... LP
Stiff/Y Records, 1981. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Fast-riffing post-punk jazz from Pigbag – captured here at their lean and stripped-down best! The album's the group's first, and has them working in a flurry of spontaneous horn parts – saxes, trumpet, and trombone leaping together with a skittish energy that's kind of a jazz-based take on the frenetic grooves of more guitar-based UK groups of the same period. Rhythms are especially strong on most tracks, and given the tight vamping of the group along with the bass, there's a feel here that predates some of the more recent work on the club jazz scene – particularly the hard-wailing sound of Soil & Pimp Sessions. All tracks are instrumentals, and titles include "Getting Up", "Big Bag", "Dozo Don", "Brazil Nuts", "Brian The Snail", "As It Will Be", and "Orangutanto". LP, Vinyl record album

John Scofield5 Original Albums (Time On My Hands/Meant To Be/Grace Under Pressure/Hand Jive/Groove Elation) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note/Universal (Germany), Early 90s. New Copy 5CD ... $24.99
A great box set that covers a relatively short span in the career of guitarist John Scofield, but one that really shows him changing a lot as well! Scofield first came up as a musician with a more breezy, open tune – that approach to jazz guitar that really blossomed in the 70s – particularly as some of the more soul-based players of the previous decade opened their minds to more spiritual and experimental settings, particularly on labels like ECM or Muse. Here, Scofield almost goes the other way – starting out with more of those open, chromatic hues that were one of his biggest calling cards in the 80s – then shifting into more groove-oriented material, pointing towards a stronger soul jazz direction he'd take as the 90s moved on. The five albums here cover the span of five years of recording – and each are presented in cool little LP-styled sleeves – in a package that includes the records Time On My Hands, Meant To Be, Grace Under Pressure, Hand Jive, and Groove Elation.

VariousNo Jive – Authentic Southern Country Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rootsy blues from the great Excello Records – most of it recorded not too far from the Tennessee city in which the label made its home! The southern scene in the 50s was going through plenty of changes – partly because of all the migration northwards that started during the wartime years, partly because of the way that radio and growing indie labels were helping criss-cross sounds and scenes through their musical efforts – with a huge run of changes that were taking place in the urban scene. Even out in the sticks, stronger use of the electric guitar really transformed rural blues – even in spare recording settings that might have mirrored blues records of the 20s and 30s – and the use of new ideas, new inflections, and new ways of putting over a tune are perfectly captured here in a batch of rare tracks done by the Excello label. Most of the cuts are super-rare singles, issued here with excellent sound – and there's a few other numbers on the set that are issued here for the first time ever – with great sound and excellent notes. Titles include "I'm Bad" by Good Rockin Bob, "No Jive" by Little Al, "Honey Babe" by Arthur Gunter, "The Natural Facts" by Leroy Campbell, "Wasted Time" by Shy Guy Douglas, "Dirty Britches" by The Leap Frogs, "Welcome Home Baby" by Slim Hunt, and "Quit My Drinkin" by Robert Garrett.

✨✧ VariousOn With The Jive – 1950s R&B From Dolphin's Of Hollywood Vol 1 ... CD
Hollywood/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Great work from one of the hippest record stores of all time – the legendary Dolphin's of Hollywood, home to some of the best R&B on the west coast scene in the 50s! The work here was all originally produced by John Dolphin for his Recorded In Hollywood label – a small imprint run out of the shop, but one that featured R&B and jazz that was every bit as great as that coming from bigger labels at the time. The titles here are all rare alternates and odd takes – compiled by Billy Vera, who first unearthed the stash of John Dolphin's tapes for Specialty Records at the end of the 80s. Vera's track selection here nicely complements other previously-released versions of Dolphin material – in that it includes some great oddities, and also even includes some great notes on the store and the scene at the time. CD features 25 tracks – all previously unissued – with titles that include "Dolphin's Theme" and "Rock Bottom" by Red Callender, "Hang Your Tears Out To Dry" and "My Love Comes Tumbling Down" by Jesse Belvin, "Pee Wee's Blues" and "Crying & Walking" by Pee Wee Crayton, "Easy Money" and "Papa" by Scatman Crothers, "Three Men In My Life" and "Tall Tan Baby" by Maggie Jacquet, "Cadillac Baby" by Little Caesar, "Baby Doll" by Marvin Phillips, "Atomic Baby" by Linda Hayes, and "The Blues Has Got Me" by an Unknown Vocalist – and even a "Dolphin's Radio Jingle" by Dick Huggy Boy Hugg!

✨✧ Schoolly DSaturday Night! - The Album (Jive pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic by Schoolly D – his second album, and the one where he really hits his stride – with profane humor and classic drum machine and oddball sample flavored production! It's almost hard-to-believe nowadays, but the un-PC rhymes were straight up scandalous back in the day – but Schoolly's laidback, charismatic delivery always tempered that language in our minds, and the production sounds fresh to this day. Not everyone agrees with us, but this is definitely one of our favorite favorite hip hop records of the later 80s! Inspired cuts include the title cut, "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle", "We Get Ill", "Parkside 5-2", "We Get Ill", and the Code Money DJ track, "It's Krack", "Dis Groove Is Bad", "Get N' Paid", "Do It Do It" and the rest LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David TreeceBrazilian Jive – From Samba To Bossa & Rap ... Book
Reaktion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's Brazilian jive, instead of Brazilian music – as the author here shows just how much the larger Brazilian culture helps shape the sound of it's songs – a wonderful interplay between urban and rural, modern and ancient, popular and intellectual – forces that have come together to make some of the greatest sounds on the planet of the past 50 years! The book's a nice change from some of the more monolithic looks at Brazilian music – which sometimes hang a bit more importance on individuals than the culture itself – and there's also a great deal of work on the language that goes into the songs, which can range from freeform poetry to more traditional chants. 232 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.

✨✧ Ruby TurnerLivin A Life Of Love – The Jive Anthology 1986 to 1991 ... CD
Jive/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic work from Ruby Turner – a UK soul singer, but one who was part of a new generation that hardly had to answer at all to her contemporaries on the other side of the Atlantic! The tracks here have a modern, midtempo groove that's right up there with the best US mainstream soul of the period – and Turner's voice, honed by years of work with others, really soars out right from the start – with a richness that really keeps these songs fresh, even past some of the production styles of the time! Ruby sings here as if she's working for Atlantic Records at the end of the 60s, and not Jive Records in the 80s – and she brings a proud, full sound to her vocals that holds up wonderfully over the years. The set's a really well-chosen batch of tracks – 32 numbers that show Turner at her best, including duets woth Jimmy Ruffin and Jonathan Butler – with titles that include "I'm Livin A Life Of Love", "Hurting Inside", "If You're Ready Come With Me", "I'm In Love", "I'd Rather Go Blind", "It's My Life (ext version)", "Step In My Shoes", "Still Waters Run Deep", "What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted", "Just My Imagination", "It's Gonna Be Alright", "Paradise (radio edit)", "Everytime I Breathe", "It's Gonna Be Alright (Brixton bass mix)", "It's You My Heart Beats For", "Merry Go Round", and "Provoking".

Jonathan ButlerSarah Sarah – The Anthology ... CD
Jive/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
Classic 80s soul from Jonathan Butler – an artist who didn't emerge on the global scene until halfway through the decade, but one who'd already had plenty of recordings on his home turf of South America! Butler was part of the great Pacific Express group in the late 70s, and also recorded as a younger artist too – but by the time of these tracks for Jive, he was a fully-formed soul singer and guitarist, easily able to take on both the American and UK worlds of soul – where he shined brightly as a triumphant force to emerge during the generation of Apartheid. Unlike other South African artists crossing over at the time, Butler's got a vibe that's much more suited to the American soul world of the period – as you'll hear on this well-done collection of 32 tracks from his big crossover years. The set's got just about every key track from these years, including duets with Vanessa Bell Armstrong and Ruby Turner – and titles include "7th Avenue South", "Haunted By Your Love", "Baby Please Don't Take It", "I'll Be Waiting For Your Love", "Gentle Love", "Afrika", "Take Me Home", "Sarah Sarah", "One More Dance", "Barenese", "Say We'll Be Together", "What Does It Take", "Welcome Home", "No Strings No Ties", "True Love Never Fails", "Song For Jon", "If You're Ready", "Melodie", "Crossroads Revisited", "I Miss Your Love Tonight", "Holding On", "Lies (ext version)", and "Love Songs Candlelight & You".

DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh PrinceHe's The DJ, I'm The Rapper ... LP
Jive/Zomba, 1988. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
One of those rare moments where a mainstream hit goes onto preface years of creative talent to come – even though the whole thing might have seemed like a bit of a one-off at the time! The young Will Smith is fantastic as the Fresh Prince – full of charm, at a level that really upped the game for so many other MCs at the time – especially because both his lyrics and his subject matter weren't maybe the most cutting-edge, but could really come over strong, thanks to the inherent stardom in his presentation! We could well argue that Will on the album introduced the whole idea of a crossover hip hop star – one able to do just about anything – but the whole record would be nothing without the creative skills of Jazzy Jeff – who went the complete opposite way after his pairing with Will – more expressive, more experimental – and even more firmly committed to the underground. Yet it was also that easy bridge between underground and fame that made early hip hop albums like this so great – as Jeff brings forward so many great musical moments on titles that include "Live At Union Square", "DJ On The Wheels", "My Buddy", "Rhythm Trax House Party Style", "He's The DJ I'm The Rapper", "Hip Hop Dancers Theme", "Jazzy's In The House", and "Human Video Game".

Richard Jon SmithRichard Jon Smith ... LP
Jive, 1983. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Tightly-crafted 80s soul from Richard Jon Smith – a set that bubbles along with a nicely percolated groove, but which also comes across with a lot of warmth on the vocals! Richard's style of singing is light and loving – very much in keeping with his sweater-clad look on the cover, and in a mode that glides along wonderfully with the lively rhythms in the set. The record manages to strike a great balance between some light electro touches and Smith's more personal style of singing – in a mode that brings the two together perfectly, without an overly-contrasting groove. Titles include "Stay With Me Tonight", "She's The Master Of The Game", "Don't Go Walking Out That Door", "How I Miss You", "This Is The Moment", and "Baby's Got Another". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the quintessential albums that put the Bay Area on the hip hop map, and the first major label full length from one of the west coast's most prolific rappers. The minimalist sound works SO well here – there's not much in the mix besides drum machine, a bit of bass and the occasional cut or scratch – all the better to allow Too Short's street tales and profane rhymes pave the ground with singular power and charisma. Tracks include "Freaky Tales", "Partytime", "You Know What I Mean", "Dope Fiend Beat", "Little Girls", "The Universal Mix" and "Playboy $hort II". LP, Vinyl record album

A masterpiece from prime era Tribe Called Quest! Midnight Maurauders was Tribe's third LP, and even though there were no tracks yet credited to the Ummah, this is pretty much the beginning of Tribe's transition to that sound – with the same mellow, laid back vibe as their best early material, but less of an overtly jazzy reference in their sound. Phife and Tip are still on point lyrically, and honestly, this is pretty much the last LP that Tribe dropped that's got nearly all hits and no misses on it. With the cuts "Award Tour", "Midnight", "Electric Relaxation", "Clap Your Hands", "Oh My God", "The Chase, Part II", and "Keep It Rollin". LP, Vinyl record album

Tribe Called QuestWe Got It From Here – Thank You 4 Your Service (with download) ... LP
Jive, 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99 29.98
A hell of a comeback for Tribe Called Quest – maybe one of the best musical comebacks ever, and a fantastic reminder of why we loved the group so much in the first place! 18 years have passed since we last heard from the trio (now, sadly, a duo) – and that time only seems to have sharpened their sound, and given them a more powerful presence than ever! Everything we loved about them is still very firmly in place – that sense of collaboration, almost improvisation in a jazz-like way, and those moments of surprise and wonder at all the deft turns they can take in a short space. Yet there's also a new edge – one that might be even more powerful in this highly politicized moment in American history – a bite that the group never had before, and a larger social agenda that makes all of their incredible skills even more amazing, when focused on a target. We've certainly missed them – but the album's also well worth the wait! Titles include "Black Spasmodic", "The Donald", "The Space Program", "We The People", "Solid Wall Of Sound", "Dis Generation", "Kids", "Melatonin", "Enough", "Movin Backwards", and "The Killing Season".

✨✧ DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh PrinceHe's The DJ, I'm The Rapper (with download & bonus album) ... LP
Jive/Zomba, 1988. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those rare moments where a mainstream hit goes onto preface years of creative talent to come – even though the whole thing might have seemed like a bit of a one-off at the time! The young Will Smith is fantastic as the Fresh Prince – full of charm, at a level that really upped the game for so many other MCs at the time – especially because both his lyrics and his subject matter weren't maybe the most cutting-edge, but could really come over strong, thanks to the inherent stardom in his presentation! We could well argue that Will on the album introduced the whole idea of a crossover hip hop star – one able to do just about anything – but the whole record would be nothing without the creative skills of Jazzy Jeff – who went the complete opposite way after his pairing with Will – more expressive, more experimental – and even more firmly committed to the underground. Yet it was also that easy bridge between underground and fame that made early hip hop albums like this so great – as Jeff brings forward so many great musical moments on titles that include "Live At Union Square", "DJ On The Wheels", "My Buddy", "Rhythm Trax House Party Style", "He's The DJ I'm The Rapper", "Hip Hop Dancers Theme", "Jazzy's In The House", and "Human Video Game". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy's earlier Caribbean inflected pop and R&B was good stuff that deserved a bigger audience and boy did it ever find him with the mid 80s hits "Caribbean Queen", the killer ballad "Suddenly" and the crazy fun "Loverboy".

RSO, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Yes, it was a mega-hit – and yes, it was one of those records that everyone who lived through the 70s seemed to own at one time – but after all these decades, you can't deny the power of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack – especially for the way that it mixed club soul classics with new original material! Obviously, the Bee Gees cover placement make them big stars of the record – but the set's also got some great early disco gems – like "Open Sesame" by Kool & The Gang, "Disco Inferno" by The Trammps, "KJEE" by MFSB, "Calypso Breakdown" by Ralph MacDonald, "Fifth Of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy, "If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman, "Boogie Shoes" by KC & The Sunshine Band, and "More Than A Woman" by Tavares. The Bee Gees reinvent themselves from the early days – and sing "Stayin Alive", "How Deep Is Your Love", "More Than A Woman", "Jive Talkin", "You Should Be Dancin", and "Night Fever" – and the set also features a few instrumentals by David Shire – "Manhattan Skyline", "Night On Disco Mountain" and "Salsation".

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerBrookmeyer – Bob Brookmeyer & Friends (1980 pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sound, space, tone, and color – a tremendous effort from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, and a record with a really unique feel! The album features a wonderful group that includes Brookmeyer on valve trombone, Stan Getz on tenor, Gary Burton on vibes, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – all coming together in a way that's extremely equally-weighted – with less of Brookmeyer as the leader, than as a warm friend, gathering together a few key players in the studio. Given that Getz worked with Brookmeyer back in the early 50s, and had Burton in his group at the time, the album's always a link between both sides of a decade in Stan's career – but with the presence of the modernists on the rhythm team, there's a sound here that's much more unique – one that has a place for Stan's wonderful tone, and Brookmeyer's airy phrasing – but which also drives along in a rhythmically pulsing mode that almost puts Burton's vibes at the top of the set on some numbers. There's a change in mood from tune to tune that gives the record a remarkable depth, but without sounding schizophrenic – and titles include "Bracket", " Wrinkle Time", "Jive Hoot", "Skylark", "Sometime Ago", and "Who Cares".

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... LP
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from the album's placement on Brain Records – and the lineup features incredible work from Sigi Schwab on guitar – who can be open and spacious at some points, but then really jam with a groove at others! Likewise, the bassist Eberhard Weber can provide a lot of propulsion when needed, but also lay back and bow his cello in a more ECM-like way – and the album's two drummers, Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, both show an equally deft ability to change up the groove! The real superstar, though, is the mighty Dauner – who plays piano, organ, and keyboards, plus a sweet bit of flute too – on tracks that include "Reading Machine", "Kamasutram", "Blues Far Out", "Flute Woman", and a freaky fuzzy take on Cannonball Adderley's "Jive Samba".

Fantastic FourAlvin Stone/Night People ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
2 classic groovers by Fantastic Four – back to back on one CD! Alvin Stone is some of the best 70s work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s. The groove is a mix of 70s harmony soul and early Westbound disco – and the longish tracks get quite involved, both vocally and arrangement-wise. The title cut – "Alvin Stone (Birth & Death Of A Gangster)" – is a righteous post-Temps soul track, and the album's got lots of other nice ones, like "Let This Moment Last Forever", "County Line", and "My Love Won't Stop at Nothing". Night People is a with a mix of classic Detroit group soul and the tighter disco sounds that were creeping into the Westbound label at the time. Paul Riser and David Van Depitte did the arranging, and the tracks include "If I Lose My Job", "Hideaway", "Don't Risk Your Happiness On Foolishness", and the long medley of "Night People" and "Lies Divided by Jive".

RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Three full album of romping organ work from Wynder K Frog – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Sunshine Superfrog – a record with a Donovan reference in the title, but a much more mod set overall – thanks to searing Hammond work from organist Mick Weaver, who was maybe one of the hippest London cats on his instrument at the time! The tunes draw equally from the Hammond soul jazz of artists like Jimmy Smith or Jimmy McGriff, and from the soul instrumental style of the time – particularly the grooves of Stax and Atlantic Records – and the deft work on the keys of the organ show that you hardly need a singer to make these records groove. Titles include "I Feel So Bad", "Blues For A Frog", "Hold On I'm Coming", "Incense", "Feel It", "Dancin Pain", "Mercy", and "Somebody Help Me". Next is Out Of The Frying Pan – a lost Hammond classic from organist Mick Weaver, who famously worked with the group Traffic! This set's a lot different than the work he did in that band, though – as the album's all instrumental, and has a quick-stepping, all-soul sound that's a lot like the best Jimmy McGriff organ jazz albums on Sue Records – mixed with maybe a bit of the mod sound of London at the time! Tunes are tight and short, but pack plenty of punch – and the album also features great work on saxes from Chris Mercer and Dick Heckstall-Smith. Titles include "Green Door", "Bad Eye", "Willie & The Hand Jive", "House That Jack Built", "Gasoline Alley", and "Harpsichord Shuffle". Last up is Into The Fire – which has the group really opening up, laying down some wonderfully jazzy and funky instrumentals with a fuzzy Hammond sound that's really great! Although the set was recorded in the UK, the best cuts have a soulful crossover sound that feels like it should have been recorded during one of the Cadet Concept sessions in Chicago at the same time. One cut has vocals, but the best are the instrumentals – like "Into the Fire", "Howl In Wolf's Clothing", "Hot Salt Beef", "Cool Hand Stanley", and "Why Am I Treated So Bad". The set features lots of bonus tracks from singles and other sources – including "Zooming", "Green Door", "I'm A Man", "Henry's Panter", "Baldy", "Dancing Frog (stereo)", "Happy Jack", "Funky Broadway", "I'll Go Crazy", "A Memory Of Bruce", "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", and "We Can Work It Out".

Slim GaillardSearching For You – The Lost Singles Of McVouty 1958 to 1974 ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Totally great work from the legendary Slim Gaillard – a host of rare singles from a time when the jazz vocal genius wasn't very strongly represented on record! Slim first rose to fame on the LA scene of the 40s – where his hip-talking, jive-scatting approach to music was a key precursor to the world of R&B – a way of mixing deeper roots, jazz-based class, and a strong sense of humor – to create a new sound that few folks could touch, and countless more would copy over the years! Yet after some 50s albums on Verve and Dot, Slim really dropped out of sight – but was still recording very groovy material for a variety of small labels – tracks that are all featured here, for the first time on CD since their original 45s. The set's great – very strong sounds that really continue Slim's great legacy, and also move him into a bit of a 60s soul vibe too. The large book features notes on the tracks, and label scans for every single – and even though we've been lifetime fans of Slim, most of this material was new for us. Titles include "Dr Free", "I Love You", "Frank Rhoads Round", "Baked Beans & A Bottle Of Beer", "Many Things", "Linda Cara", "Searching For You", "Cha Cha Enchilada", "I Don't Know Why", and "Kahlua".

Babs GonzalesLive At Small's Paradise (aka Sunday Afternoon At Small's Paradise With Babs Gonzales) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1963. Sealed ... $16.99
A mad mad afternoon with the great Babs Gonzales – one of the hippest jazz singers ever! The set is one of Babs' best on records, and it features a mix of jazz vocals and hipster monologues that shows perfectly the mixture of talent and hustling that Babs used to make a name for himself in the New York scene. He's backed by a nice little combo that includes friends and songwriting partners like Horace Parlan, Clark Terry, and Johnny Griffin – and the set includes loads of great numbers like "Dem Jive New York People", "Keep An Ugly Woman", "Be Bop Santa Claus", and "Le Moody Mood Pour Amour". The whole thing's hung together with some great patter, and recorded in a way that shows the warm spirit of all the more famous folks who kept Babs going along during his glory years! This is the second pressing, on Chiarusco, but still a tough one to get a hold of! LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Krupa, Charlie Ventura, Shorty Rogers, & OtheCommodore Jazz Classics – Town Hall Jazz Concert ... CD
Commodore/Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1945. New Copy ... $13.99
A great document of an early all-star jazz concert – recorded at Town Hall by a young Bob Shad – who's clearly working here in the same live territory as producer Norman Granz! There's a great sense of variety going on here – and the record's maybe worth it alone for an excellent performance by a trio with Gene Krupa on drums and Charlie Ventura on tenor – with only piano, and no other instrumentation – a great mode for both players! The album also features work from a quintet led by pianist Teddy Wilson with Flip Phillips on tenor – on the tune "Sweet & Lovely"; a trio with Billy Taylor on piano and Stuff Smith on violin, on "Perdido"; a fantastic duet between Don Byas' tenor and Slam Stewart's bass on "I Got Rhythm"; and a Red Norvo group with Shorty Rogers on trumpet and Flip Phillips on tenor, on the tunes "The Man I Love" and "One Note Jive".

Lord BuckleyBest Of Lord Buckley (Elektra) ... LP
Elektra, 1951/Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A late 60's issue of Lord Buckley's rare early recordings for the Vaya label in LA – groundbreaking sides that predated most comedy albums, and which also had a huge influence on the spoken word recordings of the beat generation! The tracks were recorded live, with Buckley talking in a mixture of jive and gibberish that may well have marked him as the first true hipster on record – and which also puts him in a lineage that's somewhere between Slim Gaillard and Babs Gonzales. Titles include "The Nazz", "Jonah And The Whale", "Nero", "Gettysburg Address", "Marc Antony's", and "Funeral Notation" LP, Vinyl record album

Harvey MandelRighteous (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... About April 25, 2018 (delayed)
A very nice album of electric guitar groovers from a young Harvey Mandel! The record has less of the trippy dippy feel of Harvey's later albums – and instead has some nice tight jazzy arrangments, with his soulful guitar soloing over the top. Abe "Voco" Kesh produced the record – and it includes a very nice cover of "Jive Samba", plus the cuts "Poontang", "Boo Bee Doo", "Summer Sequence", "Short's Stuff", and "Just A Hair More". CD

✨✧ Rudy Ray Moore & The Soul Rebellion OrchestraDolemite ... LP
Generation International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Quite possibly THE mother of all funky soundtracks – the legendary score to Rudy Ray Moore's classic first Dolemite film! The record's been referenced for years, and all the hype is totally right – because the whole thing's overflowing with funky tracks both vocal and instrumental – cut with a sound that's as gritty and badass as the movie itself! The Soul Rebellion Orchestra provided the wicked instrumental grooves for the set – and vocalists include Mary Love and Ben Taylor – and the pacing of the whole record almost makes it come across like a mini-movie in sound! You'll find enough samples on here to cut a lifetime's worth of hip hop LPs, and the funky tracks will have you coming back to the record again and again! Tracks include "The Queen", "The Rumble", "Mayor Get Away", "The Jive Jungle", "Creeper", and "Ghetto Expressions". LP, Vinyl record album
