Bill Holman & Mel Lewis QuintetJive For Five ... LP
Andex, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
Sublime small group work from tenor saxophonist Bill Holman – and a record that really lets him stretch out with some longer-than-usual solo work! Holman's working here as the co-leader with drummer Mel Lewis – in a group that also features trumpeter Lee Katzman, bassist Wilford Middlebrook, and pianist Jimmy Rowles. The head arrangements are quite tight, and remind us a lot of some of Holman's work on charts for larger bands – but as the longish tunes unfold, the solo work is extremely dexterous – and supported wonderfully by some fluid work on piano by Rowles. Titles include Holman's classic "Jive For Five", plus "The Beat Generation", "502 Blues Theme", and "Liza". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Millie JacksonImitation Of Love ... LP
Jive, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet 80s groove from Millie Jackson – a set that's got a very different vibe than her famous southern soul work of the 70s – but one that still has the singer very much at the top of her game! The backgrounds are a bit more electric than before – especially the rhythms – but Jackson's raspy, raw approach to the lyrics really holds fast – and, if anything, helps make the set a new vision in rootsy soul for a more contemporary generation. Some of the "nasty gal" tones of previous years are put on the backburner – and Millie returns to those mellower ballads that were always some of her strongest work – really shining nicely on tracks that include "It's A Thang", "An Imitation Of Love", "Hot Wild Unrestricted Crazy Love", "Wanna Be Your Lover", "Love Is A Dangerous Game", and "I Fell In Love".

✨✧ Kool Moe DeeHow Ya Like Me Now ... LP
Jive, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kool Moe Dee's second album – a benchmark moment in mid-to-late 80s solo rap – and definitely worth a post millennium revisit! The title cut is a prime relic of the Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J battles back in the day, and that along with "Wild Wild West" are bonafide classic cuts – but the a lot of the lesser remembered tracks here are ultimately just as nice. Even though it's only his second album, Moe was a block rockin' veteren by this point, with an MC pedigree stretching back to Treacherous Three, and is probably his sharpest point. Other tracks include "Suckers", "Way Way Back", "No Respect", "Don't Dance", "I'm A Player" and "Get Paid". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SakhileNew Life ... LP
Jive Afrika, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
The group's second album for Jive, and a batch of 80s African tracks that have a surprisingly jazzy edge to them. The sound here is quite different from the Celluloid approach to New African grooves – a bit more soulful and standard, but with strong use of instruments in a fusiony way, one that takes the tracks past the obvious cliches, and certain pitfalls that were plaguing much African funk of the time. Titles include "Night Dance", "Suite Soweto", "African Heritage", "Joyous Sound", and "Song For All". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyPhenix ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall! The album's actually Cannonball's last full studio set, but it's also one of his greatest too – a very hip little record that features arrangements that are slightly bigger than before – almost a CTI sort of mode, with a similar CTI sense of space, sound, and timing! There's some great keyboards on the set – courtesy of George Duke and Mike Wolff – and other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Airto on percussion, Sam Jones and Walter Booker on bass, and Louis Hayes and Roy McCurdy on drums. The keyboards lead off most numbers, but they're followed strongly by Cannon and Nat – both of whom open up wonderfully in the magical setting of the record! Titles include great new takes on "Sack O Woe", "Work Song", "Jive Samba", "74 Miles Away", "Walk Tall/Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Country Preacher", "Domination", and "This Here" – plus "Hi Fly" and "Hamba Nami".

Back DoorBack Door ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A hard-jamming bit of jazz rock – with lots of free solo work on alto and soprano sax by Ron Aspery, and a pretty strong power-trio instrumental format from Tony Hicks on drums and Colin Hodgkinson on bass. The album's more jamming than it is funky, but there's some pretty great playing on the set – and overall, the whole thing sounds better than most albums of its type because the group never use vocals, just stick in a tight instrumental format – one that almost sounds like a rock take on the ESP sound at times! Titles include "Back Door", "Jive Grind", "Askin The Way", "Vienna Breakdown", "Plantagenet", and the Beastie Boys' sample track "Slivadiv"! LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Derrick Total ExperienceYou Betcha! – Live At Fiddlers ... LP
PS Records, 1974. Very Good+ ... $369.99
A pretty hip batch of soul jazz tracks – recorded by drummer Frank Derrick live at Fiddler's nightclub in Chicago. Derrick's group plays a bit of everything – from Eddie Harris funky jazz to driving big band numbers to organ-heavy soul jazz numbers – all with a nicely heavy bottom that really gives the tracks an edge! The recording quality is nicely rumbly at times – almost giving the record the feel of some of those great local school band records from the same period – but the album's even better than those, because the tunes here are all original numbers – with a great overall conception that's a lot fresher than the usual album of this sort! Titles include "No Jive", "Jazz Scene", "Variations In Jazz", "Inspiration", and "Socialite Suburbanite". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, but this original pressing is in great shape overall!)

United Artists, 1969. Very Good ... $9.99
Funky organ tracks by the keyboardist from the group Traffic! The record's got a very heavy Brit beat group sound – with a mix of the Jimmy McGriff Sue organ style that was so popular in the UK. The record's got a bit of rock-sounding tunes, but also some nice funky moments! Cuts include "Green Door", "Bad Eye", "Willie and the Hand Jive", "House that Jack Built", and "Harpsichord Shuffle".

Babs GonzalesLive At Small's Paradise (aka Sunday Afternoon At Small's Paradise With Babs Gonzales) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1963. Very Good ... $6.99
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

Frank Hunter & The HuntsmenWatermelon Man ... LP
Epic, 1963. Very Good ... $22.99
A killer lost groover! Frank Hunter & The Huntsmen were an obscure little combo who were probably just a loose collective of studio musicians – but man, do they know how to rock! The group's got a hard wailing tenor sound, mixed with some very heavy rhythm playing – and the result is a great batch of soul jazz instrumentals that mix 50s R&B with 60s soul! The version of "Watermelon Man" on the album is pretty famous from a few compilations over the years – but there are lots of other nice moments like "Jive Samba", "Meditation", "Jelly Bread", "Mama Didn't Lie", and "Laughing Boy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label mono pressing.)

✨✧ Ohio PlayersOhio Players Gold ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
A well-titled set – as it's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo", "Feel The Beat", "I Want To Be Free", "Fopp", "Far East Mississippi", "Only A Child Can Love", "Jive Turkey (part 1)", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"!

Johnny OtisJohnny Otis Show Live At Monterey ... LP
Epic, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Johnny's very much in his "revival" mode here – dipping back to his earlier R&B roots, and working with a host of famous older blues singers. The set's got vocals by Roy Milton, Roy Brown, Esther Phillips, Mighty Mouth Evans, Ivory Joe Hunter, Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, Margie Evans, and Big Joe Turner – and even though Shuggie Otis is on the album, the whole thing's a pretty bluesy affair overall. Titles include "Shuggie's Boogie", "Plastic Man", "Margie's Boogie", "Baby You Don't Know", "Little Esther's Blues", "RM Blues", "Goin Back To LA", "Willie & The Hand Jive", and "Since I Met You Baby".

Llans Thelwell & The CelestialsLlans Plays It All ... LP
SOUL/Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $13.99
An excellent combo from 60s Jamaica – a group who are equally well skilled at soul, jazz, and a number of other styles too! The groove is less rocksteady than you might expect – although there's plenty of that in the rhythms – and at some level, these guys feel more like some cool group from the south who can serve up some wicked instrumentals with plenty of soul, then throw in a few vocals when the time is right! Leader Llans Thelwell plays guitar in the group, but allows plenty of room for the horn players to do their thing – and many of the cuts on the set were written by trumpeter Joe Bennett, who gets in some nice solos and handles the arrangements. Titles include "Jive Samba", "No Parking", "Pick Up The Pieces", "Mughead Ska", "El Bobo", and "Free For All". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BB KingHis Best – The Electric BB King ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Charles MingusLet My Children Hear Music ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ OsibisaOsibirock ... LP
Warner, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A big crossover hit for Osibisa – a record that has the group softening up their groove slightly from the heady days of the Roger Dean album covers, yet still retaining enough Afro Funk to keep things interesting! If anything, the rhythms here are a bit pan-global – sometimes hard and heavy, sometimes lighter and more focused on the melodies of the tunes, especially on the catchier numbers – and instrumentation includes plenty of horns and percussion! Titles include "African Jive", We Belong", "Home Affairs", "Osibirock", and "Kelele". LP, Vinyl record album

One of their biggest LPs, this one hardly needs any introduction from us, with the massive hit "Another One Bites The Dust", that appeals to beat diggers and mullet-headed rockers alike! Also includes 'Dragon Attack", "Play The Game", "Need Your Loving Tonight", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", 'Rock It (prime jive)", "Don't Try Suicide" and "Sail Away Sweet Sister".

✨✧ RufusRufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... LP
ABC, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today! Of course, one of the reasons for that is Chaka Khan's incredible vocals – caught here at a prime early point, and very nicely set against some warm electric keyboards and tight groovy guitars – which provide a groove that's live and spontaneous, and never too forced – just the right kind of energy to work perfectly with her approach to the lyrics, without any of the too-polished modes you'd fine from copycat groups trying to fake a sound like this. Rufus had been with Chaka for years by this point – fusing together a sublime blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock – a sound they forged woodshedding in Chicago in the early days, let loose in perfect studio territory on the west coast of the 70s. The whole thing's a classic – and titles include "Jive Talking", "Sweet Thing", "Fools Paradise", "Circle", "Everybody Has An Aura", and "On Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyJapanese Concerts (Nippon Soul plus unreleased bonus tracks) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1963. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A nice double LP expanding on Cannonball's swingin' Japanese concert set issued as Nippon Soul, adding dates from the same concert tour. Featuring one of Cannonball's best groups from the 60's, with Joe Zawinul on piano, brother Nat on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums, and adding Yusef Lateef, who does some excellent reed work on tenor, flute, and oboe – and who's playing at this point with that great mix of soul jazz and out-sounds that he was cooking up at the time. With the half dozen tunes from the original issue, including an excellent 12 minute reading of Lateef's "Brother John", pls "Tengo Tango", "Come Sunday", "The Weaver", "Easy To Love" and "Nippon Soul", plus the additional numbers 'Work Song", "Autumn Leaves", "Dizzy's Business", "Primitivo" and "Jive Samba".

✨✧ Michael FranksArt Of Tea ... LP
Warner, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A seminal classic from Michael Franks – one of those records that's almost a whole genre unto itself, and which set a whole new tone for the male voice in American music! The style here is light and jazzy – almost an evolution of modes first begun by Kenny Rankin, and served up here with a similarly compressed production style that really brings out the jazz in the instrumentation. Players include Michael Brecker, Joe Sample, Larry Carlton, and David Sanborn – all sounding great with a bit of added strings from Nick DeCaro. But the real star of the set is clearly Franks – whose light vocals and creative lyrics sound wonderful next to the electric piano on the set. Titles include "Eggplant", "Monkey See Monkey Do", "Jive", "Mr Blue", "Popsicle Toes", "St Elmos Fire", "I Don't Know Why I'm So Happy I'm Sad", and "Sometimes I Just Forget To Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Solid State, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from the team of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – arguably one of their best albums from the late 60s, and a set that's got some really great funky big band numbers! There's a nice bouncing groove to the group that they normally don't have – possibly because Richard Davis is playing some Fender bass on the set, which brings in a nice focus on the bottom end – and the best numbers have a sock-soul feel that's in the best late 60s large group soul jazz mode! Titles include "Tow Away Zone", "Jive Samba", "The Groove Merchant", and "Central Park North". LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1950s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
2LP set that brings together early R&B sides recorded for the Savoy label – not really rock and roll as the title might imply, but a good set of cuts that's sort of an overview of the label's classic hits. Includes the sublime "Bad Boy" by The Jive Bombers, plus "Misery", "Lost In A Dream", and "Head Hunter" by Johnny Otis; "Hot Rod" and "Cornbread" by Hal Singer; "Marie", "Count Every Star", and "Old Man River" by The Ravens; "Candy" and "Mean To Me" by Big Maybelle, and "The Hucklebuck" by Paul Williams. Lots more obscure stuff, too – and a good set of notes! LP, Vinyl record album
