Jive TurkeysReggie/Duck's Dirge ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2014. New Copy ... $4.99
The Jive Turkeys do "The Reggie" here – a quick-stepping groove that mixes these sweet skittish drums with a bold horn section, tight guitar, and some mighty nice Hammond! The tune bumps along quickly and only gains energy towards the end – a flurry of instrumental power with a very funky feel! "Duck's Dirge" is a funky variation on the older style of dirge – done with these slow-breaking drums under moody Hammond that moves equally slow – but in a way that's a lot more soulful than sad! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ 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".

David TreeceBrazilian Jive – From Samba To Bossa & Rap ... Book
Reaktion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $6.99 25.00
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.

VariousSouth African Funk Experience –- Zulu, Funky Disco, Shebeen Jive, Jo 'Burg Funk, Spiritual Jazz Dance , Shangaan & More ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... $14.99
An excellent collection of funky tracks from South Africa – most of them with a slightly different feel than work you'd get on other Afro Funk compilations – and we mean that in a good way, too! Some of the artists are names you'd recognize from later recordings of the big South African crossover years of the 80s and 90s – but they're represented here by harder, edgier cuts from the early days – and mixed up with some more obscure acts, too – which really helps bring a freshness to the set, especially given the interweaving of genres that goes on – as you might guess from the extended sub-title of the CD! Titles include "Sangoma" by Malombo, "Oh Yeh Soweto" by Teaspoon & The Waves, "Intombi Ibhinca Isidwaba" by Phuzushukela, "Kikzelani" by Nelcy Sedibe, "Hula Hoop Jive" by Kataki, "Andromeda" by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, "Malume" by Abafakasi, "Baloyi" by Dudu Pukwana & Spear, "Lily's Express" by Gwigwi Mrwebi, "Wozan Mahipi" by Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, and "Bayeza" by Soul Brothers.

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... $16.99
Not the kind of record you might expect – neither a porno session, or a collection of work by artists named Richard – and instead, a sweet stack of rare tracks originally issued on 78rpm shellac – working together here in jiving jazzy brilliance! The work here is from the swing generation and beyond – with a strong focus on the sorts of sounds that would set the tone for the jump jive and R&B generation – including some especially nice vocal tracks! Titles on this second volume include "Ball Of Fire" by Gene Krupa, "Bunch Of Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Root Hog Or Die" by The Harlem Hamfats, "Rip Up The Joint" by Sidney Bechet, "Jive" by Cab Calloway, "All The Cats Join In" by Roy Eldridge, "Raid The Joint" by Erskine Hawkins, "Harlem Rhumbain" by Hot Lips Page, and "Who Said Shorty Wasn't Coming Back" by Lucky Millinder.

✨✧ VariousNo Jive – Authentic Southern Country Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

"Funky Jive" is one of the most amazing lost funky 45's of all time! Very slow hard groove, chugging along with a piano that keeps clanking over and over again – all off-key, but very edgey sounding.

✨✧ Buddy TateAll Star Jive At Five (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Buddy Tate on the relatively trad side of the spectrum – but still blowing here with that wonderfully deep tone that we love on his famous tenor! The set features a group named as The Buddy Tate All Starts – a combo that also features Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Vic Dickenson on trombone, and Johnny Guarnieri on piano! As you'd guess from the lineup, there's an undercurrent of trad in the session – but all players certainly show off some more contemporary leanings in their solos – with modern edges that really show the different sort of sound you'd get from players like this in the 70s. Titles include "Constantly", "Jive At Five", "Sweethearts On Parade", and "I Never Knew". Also features a few bonus alternate takes. CD

Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, toughest, street conscious hip hop to come. It's a unique snapshot of the time, too, coming at the crossroads of hip hop's rise from the 80s streets to the mainstream, with KRS One standing for realness right there at the brink. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

ClipseHell Hath No Fury (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 2006. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The long-gestated follow up to the breakout Lord Willin' record by Clipse! Hell Hath No Fury may have been on ice for years, but it appeared as an instant classic, WAY up at the top of the list of greatest hip hop LPs of the mid 00s. The Neptunes beats are very spare and chilly, despite the fiery title – while the Pusha T & Malice style of precise storytelling and detached deliveries probably make them one of the most natural duos in the game. A gritty rap masterpiece. Tracks include "We Got It For Cheap", "Momma I'm So Sorry", the masterful "Mr Me Too" feat Pharrell, "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" feat Slim Thug, "Dirty Money", "Ride Around Shining" feat the Re-Up Gang, "Key's Open Doors", "Chinese New Year" feat Rosco P Coldchain, "Nightmares" feat Pharrell & Bilal and more.

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". Other tracks include "Mystery Lady", "Lucky Man", "Dancefloor" and "If I Should Lose You". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieCount Basie Story ... CD
Roulette/EMI, 1960. Used 2 CDs ... $3.99
Count Basie rewrites history – updating his older work for the Roulette Records years, in this hip collection that features lots of new arrangements from Frank Foster – and rich performances from his great group at the time! The recordings are all new, as are the conceptions of the tunes – so there seems to be even more syncopated swing in the rhythms than on any of the older takes on the material – that fresh sound that the group grew into with Neal Hefti – still going strong here in Foster's hands. So although the tunes are Basie classics – and classics from other bands of the 30s and 40s – the performances and solos are plenty fresh! Titles include "Swinging The Blues", "Out The Window", "Texas Shuffle", "Down For Double", "Lester Leaps In", "Topsy", "Taps Miller", "Shorty George", "Jive At Five", and "Dogging Around". CD

Smoke Sessions, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A strong double dose live set for Smoke Sessions led by guitarist Peter Bernstein – in a quartet setting with Christian McBride on bass, Brad Mehldau on piano and Gregory Hutchinson on drums – reconvening the the line-up that recorded Bernstein's Signs album on Criss Cross back in the mid 90s! It's wonderful for several reasons – for one, in getting these amazing, incredibly busy players back together after all these years – and for fleshing out the material so greatly in a live setting! The Signs tunes really breathe here, with lots of air and space for each player to shine, most tracks running nice on long on the 2CD set. They're all Bernstein originals save for 3 Thelonious Monk numbers, and the titles include "Blues For Bulgaria", "Hidden Pockets", "Dragonfly", "Jive Coffee", "Pannonica", "Useless Metaphor", "Let Loose", "All Too Real", "Resplendor", "Crepuscule With Nellie/We See" and "Cupcake".

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerBob Brookmeyer & Friends ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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".

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", "The Wrinkle", "Jive Hoot", "Skylark", "Sometime Ago", and "Who Cares". CD also features 3 previously unissued bonus tunes from the sessions – "Time For Two", "Pretty Girl", and "Day Dream" – the last of which features vocals by Tony Bennett! CD

Columbia/Get On Down, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Malice & Pusha T back with The Neptunes on the bulk of Til The Casket Drops – recorded Columbi, after the Jive Records swan song/uncompromising masterpiece Hell Hath No Fury back in '06, and this one still head-and-shoulders above most major label hip hop LPs circa '09! The couple of concessions to street rap radio can be forgiven with album tracks that cut as deep as the ones here – with a couple produced by DJ Khalil, and guests including Kanye West, Yo Gotti, Cam'Ron, Ab Liva, Keri Hilson & Nicole Hurst. Titles include "Freedom", "Popular Demand (Popeyes) feat Cam'Ron & Pharrell, "Kinda Like A Big Deal" feat Kanye West, "Showing Out" feat Yo Gotti, "I'm Good" feat Pharrell, "Door Man", "Never Will It Stop" feat Ab Liva, "All Eyes On Me" feat Keri Hilson, "Counseling" feat Nicole Hurst, "Life Change" and more.

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... CD
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

Wild Bill DavisMidnight To Dawn ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A nice live cooker from Wild Bill Davis! This album was recorded at Grace's Little Belmont, a club in Atlantic City in 1967, a place where organist Davis had played almost every summer for over twenty years. He is joined by Clayton Robert Brown on tenor sax, James "Dickie" Thompson on guitar and Robert Joseph Durham on drums. Some of the tracks are Davis or Davis and Bob Brown originals and they include "Let It Be", "Adoration", and "Up Top". Other songs are "Manha de Carnaval" from Black Orpheus, "Jive Samba", "Soft Winds", "Little Tracy", "Straight No Chaser", and "Cute" among others. LP, Vinyl record album

Exit 9Straight Up ... LP
BRC, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The one and only album by Exit 9 – an obscure funk combo who recorded this rare set for Brunswick in 1975! The group is extremely tight instrumentally – working at a very fast funky clip that's kind of similar to work by Bohannon or Sound Experience – both of whom shared Exit 9's pre-disco approach to dancefloor grooves – more fast-funk than the tighter club sound of later years, and proof that a funky combo could hit the dancefloor if it had the right groove! Most numbers have vocals, and instrumentation includes lots of nice guitar work that keeps a rawer edge on the tracks – choppy and gritty in a really great way. Tracks include "MFB", "Miss Funky Fox", "Fly", "Julie I Love You", "Jive Man", and "Rhapsody in Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic FourAlvin Stone/Night People ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $10.99 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".

Slim GaillardSearching For You – The Lost Singles Of McVouty 1958 to 1974 ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 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. Very Good ... $4.99
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

Willis JacksonJackson's Action ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $12.99
Lots and lots of action here – a stone cooker from tenorist Willis Jackson, who always seems to burn even stronger than usual in concert performance! The group is raw, rough, and plenty swinging – the great Pat Martino on guitar, Carl Wilson on organ, and Joe Hadrick on drums – plus additional trumpet from Frank Robinson, who really blasts out nicely in the frontline with Jackson! The rhythms are amazing – very snapping and catchy, with almost an early modal soul jazz vibe – and titles include a great long version of "Jive Samba", which sounds very similar to Jackson's amazing Prestige classic "Nother'n Like Thuther'n" – plus the cuts "I Wish You Love", "Monkey Hips", "Aw Right Do It", and "Jackson's Action".

Jonah JonesJumpin' With Jonah ... CD
Capitol, Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Classic trumpet-heavy jive from Jonah Jones – reissued here with a number of bonus tracks pulled from other albums from the late 50s. The focus is on Jonah's gutbucket swinging style, with his trumpet up front in the mix in post-KC swing-type tunes. Things get a bit campy at times, but this pop-jazz-swing style worked extremely well for Jones and Capitol. Titles include "Moten Swing", "Lots Of Luck Charley", "Ballin The Jack", "Slowly But Surely", "Night Train", "The Blues Don't Care", and "Just A Gigolo". Sure to be a big hit with the modern swingers! CD

BB KingBlues Is King (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ABC/Elemental (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A 60s set from Memphis bluesman BB King – but one put together with a very distinct Chicago touch as well! The set's produced by Johnny Pate, and recorded live with a vibe that's similar to King's classic recording at The Regal – but it's almost got even more of a soulful punch, thanks to backing from a cool small combo that includes Bobby Forte on tenor, Kenneth Sands on trumpet, Duke Jethro on Hammond, and Louis Satterfield on bass! BB's vocals are great – in his best early form – and the tunes are bluesy, but also smoke with a nice degree of soul – and almost some jazzy touches at times from the tenor and organ. Titles include "Don't Answer The Door", "Blind Love", "Tired Of Your Jive", "Night Life", "Buzz Me", and "Waitin On You". LP, Vinyl record album

BB KingHis Best – The Electric BB King ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
BB King at his late 60s best – working here in the company of producers Johnny Pate and Quincy Jones, and serving up a great blend of blues and soul in the process! The set's less a "best of", than a collection of ABC work that doesn't seem to be on the other full albums of the time – mostly produced by Johnny Pate, with those great Chicago soul touches that helped his work with King really cross new boundaries – and finally give BB the kind of full, forceful approach that Bobby Blue Bland had been getting for years. The Quincy Jones cuts are two from the soundtrack to For Love Of Ivy – both pretty groovy, with a socking soul punch – and titles on the full album include "Tired Of Your Jive", "Don't Answer The Door", "The BB Jones", "Paying The Cost To Be The Boss", "All Over Again", "I Don't Want You Cutting Off Your Hair", "Sweet Sixteen", "Meet My Happiness", and "You Put It On Me".

✨✧ Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea on piano! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 360 Sound pressing.)
