KRS-OneReturn Of The Boom Bap ... LP
Jive, 1993. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
KRS first solo lp, with production by Premier and Kid Capri, has him trying to break out of the formula of the last BDP LP. OK, about half the material is forgettable, but the tracks that hit, more than make up for it. With the hits "Outta Here", "I Can't Wake Up", "Black Cop", "Sound of the Police".

Steady BBring The Beat Back ... LP
Jive, 1986. Very Good- ... $4.99
We may be in the minority here, but we're still fans of that mid-80's Pop Art sound. The album is a collection of his earlier single on Pop Art, with "Bring The Beat Back", "Stupid Fresh" and the novelty cuts "Yo Mutha" and "Do The Fila" the answer to Joeski Love's "Pee Wee Dance."

Ruby TurnerWomen Hold Up Half Of The Sky ... LP
Jive, 1985. Near Mint- ... $0.99
Sleek modern soul from Ruby Turner – her tightly grooving Women Hold Up Half The Sky – a mid 80s set that's very much of the era, but with songs that are far more timelessly structured than many pop soul efforts of the era! Ruby's vocals lovely and wonderful here, on a mix of ballads and more midtempo R&B. It's a mix of synthy and smooth soul, and it holds up very well! Titles include "If You're Ready (Come Go With Me)" with Jonathan Butler, "In My Life (It's Better To Be In Love)", "Hurting Inside", "He's Mine", "Still On My Mind", "Only Women Bleed" (yep, a soul take on the Alice Cooper hit!), "Hurting Inside" and more.

Count BasieBasie Rides Again ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A smoking stormer from Basie's Verve years – filled with tight-grooving shorter tunes, played in a style that's a great update of the original approach of the group! Eddie Lockjaw Davis is actually working with the group on this set, making for some searing tenor moments that really stand out – and Al Hibbler makes a gues appearance on vocals on two numbers as well. Other players include Ernie Wilkins, Paul Quinichette, Freddie Green, and Charlie Shavers – and titles include "Tippin On The QT", "Blee Blop Blues", "Jive At Five", "Be My Guest", "No Name", "Blues For The Count & Oscar", and "Redhead". Great cover, too – with Basie on a scooter! LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Clef Series pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has a split spine.)

Wild Bill DavisMidnight To Dawn ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
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

Ebony Rhythm Funk CampaignWatchin' You, Watchin' Me ... LP
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A perfect example of the old adage that the funkier the band's name is, the less funky their music will be! Not that the group's really that bad or anything – they're just not the all-out party jam you'd expect from an ensemble with "ebony" and "funk" in their name. The groove is more smooth funky soul than anything else, and the record was produced by Carl Davis for his Chi-Sound imprint, and it's got a similar sound to some of the other groups on the label, like Manchild. Tracks include "Jive Du Du", "You Got Me Rushin", "Where You Lead", "Syncopated Madness", and "Watchin You, Watchin Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a cut corner, light wear, and an ink stamp.)

✨✧ Jack McDuffLive At The Jazz Workshop ... LP
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
A killer diller of a live set from Brother Jack McDuff – a cut that burns with energy that almost beats his studio 60s classics for Prestige! The group is one of Jack's best ever – a lineup that includes the twin tenors of Red Holloway and Harold Vick, plus incredibly sharp guitar from a young George Benson, and some of the most unique soul jazz drum work you'll ever hear – courtesy of the amazing Joe Dukes. Despite their individual strengths, which might make this whole thing an ego-fest – all players fit perfectly into place on the album's hard wailing batch of groovers, and groove together with a sympathetic energy that's simply amazing! Titles include a great remake of "Jive Samba", plus "Dink's Blues", "Grease Monkey", "Passing Through", and "Vas Dis". This is the kind of thing live recording equipment was made for! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has some pen on the front, fully split top & bottom seams, with some aging on the back.)

✨✧ Ohio PlayersSkin Tight ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group! This was the band's first album for Mercury – and although one might have the temptation to say that the label cut down the radical funk sound of the trippy Westbound years, the move also taught the band to sharpen up their act, and get out of the repetitive sloppy groove into which they'd been lapsing during the past few years. The record's a lot smoother than earlier work – with a polished funky sound that would soon push the band right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at the top of the soul charts. And although there's familiar funky numbers like "Skin Tight", "Jive Turkey", and "Streakin Cheek To Cheek" – the best moment on the entire album is the wonderful spacey soul number "Heaven Must be Like This", a seven minute mellow groover that's got a sophisticated jazzy soul style, with voices and piano soaring into the heavens, in a way that always still sends chills down our spine! That cut shows the band's tremendous growth – and it's one of their best-ever! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

OsibisaOsibirock ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
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
(Cover has a cut corner. Vinyl has a slight warp but plays fine.)

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyPhenix ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Titles include "Jive At Five", "Candy", "Harriet", "Pussy Willow", "If I Had You", and "Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Babs GonzalesLive At Small's Paradise (aka Sunday Afternoon At Small's Paradise With Babs Gonzales) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Collector's Series pressing.)

✨✧ 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
(Original pressing. Cover has light wear, an ink stamp on back, and a small tear at the bottom of the back paste-on.)

We're not ashamed to admit we're big fans of Queen around here, and why shouldn't we be? 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".

Like the title says, a mix of show and Hollywood stuff, with emphasis on the latter. All cuts feature the Schifrin's sweeping piano over a tight small combo sound. The killer cut here is "Jive Orbit", a syncopated, uptempo swinger, with pounding bass intro. Other tracks include "Days Of Wine And Roses", "Hallucinations", "Who Will Buy", "Hud", and "She Loves Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisNefertiti (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Mobile Fidelity, 1967. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Dark genius from the always-amazing Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that's a bit more subtle than some of the group's other efforts, but no less powerful – and virtually a blueprint for countless changes to come in jazz during the next few decades! The interplay of Davis' trumpet, Wayne Shorter's tenor, and Herbie Hancock's piano is worth the price of admission alone – a force that seems to flow of its own direction, pulled three ways equally, but always emerging as a sound greater than its parts. And adding in the subtle pulse of Ron Carter on bass and nearly melodic drums of Tony Williams, the sound is even more incredible – a well-crafted and evocative sound that's far more than jazz! Titles include versions of Herbie's "Riot" and "Madness", Shorter's "Nefertiti" and "Pinocchio", and Williams' "Hand Jive". Double 180 gram audiophile pressing from Mobile Fidelity – plays at 45rpm! LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful Mobile Fidelity 45rpm pressing – un-numbered limited edition.)

✨✧ Frank Hunter & The HuntsmenWatermelon Man ... LP
Epic, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
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.)

✨✧ Count BasieStanding Ovation ... LP
Dot, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the great Count Basie albums recorded during his short late life stay on Dot Records – a label who really helped him focus his energy and keep up that classic Basie "punch" in his grooves – but all without sacrificing the growth the group had gone through over the years! There's plenty of modern colors and tones in the mix here – elements from the Basie years with arrangers like Neal Hefti, Quincy Jones, and Billy Byers – but the presentation is also strong and straight, with a hell of a lot packed into just a little space – that mode that always made the Count such a great leader! Players include Marshal Royal on alto, Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Eric Dixon on tenors, Charlie Fowlkes on baritone, Harry Edison and Oscar Brasher on trumpets, and Grover Mitchell on trombone – on titles that include "Lil Darlin", "Jive At Five", "Broadway", "Cherry Point", "Every Tub", "Corner Pocket", and "Blue & Sentimental". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)
