✨✧ Kool Moe DeeHow Ya Like Me Now ... LP
Jive, 1987. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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

Marc BennoAmbush ... LP
A&M, 1972. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Things are tightening up a bit in the Marc Benno sound for this record – and the singer's taking an approach that's perhaps a bit more country rock than before, yet still without any of the cliches of the genre at the time! Benno's still very much concerned with coming across as a singer/songwriter on the record – and his voice and original tunes are at the forefront of the set, heard especially nicely on the more folksy tunes on the record – of which there are plenty. As before, there's almost a genre-less quality to the music that's extremely nice – because while one tune might feature upbeat steel guitar, the next is filled with subtle jazzy changes on piano, and the one after that with spare shadings on acoustic guitar. Benno's a wonderful enigma to our ears, and his talents only deepen over the years – as you'll hear on this set of tunes that includes "Poor Boy", "Donut Man", "Share", "Hall Street Jive", "Either Way It Happens", "Here To Stay Blues", and "Sunshine Feelin".

Ruby Braff, George Wein/Bob Brookmeyer & Al CohnJazz At Storyville 1 (Jazz At The Boston Arts Festival/Bob Brookmeyer Featuring Al Cohn) ... LP
Storyville/Trio (Japan), 1954. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A Japanese-only album – one that brings together two rare 10" jazz sessions for the Storyville label in Boston! First up is Jazz At The Boston Arts Festival – a great set of trad jazz grooves from the Boston scene of the 50s – recorded with an easygoing groove that's totally great, and put together by George Wein in the same spirit as some of his better-known live events of the time! Players include Ruby Braff on trumpet, Vic Dickenson and Dick Lefave on trombones, Al Drootin on clarinet, Sam Margolis on tenor, Buzzy Drootin on drums, and Wein himself on piano – and the tunes are open-ended swing-based numbers, with titles that include "High Society", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Swinging The Blues", "At The Jazz Band Ball", and "After You've Gone". The second half of the album is even better – the great 10" session Bob Brookmeyer Featuring Al Cohn – a great early session from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer – recorded with a light easy swing that's similar to his mid 50s work with Stan Getz, and in a format that's possibly more relaxed overall! This time around, Bob's working with Al Cohn on tenor – a nice choice for the date, and a player who gives the record a different feel than the more famous Getz/Brookmeyer combination of the time. The rest of the group includes John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on bass, and Bill Anthony on drums – and there's some great interplay between Cohn's tenor and Bob's trombone – the latter of which has that trademark compressed sound throughout! Titles include "Jive At Five", "In The Mode", "Skylark", and "Open Country". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisNefertiti (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Mobile Fidelity, 1967. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $39.99
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

Willis JacksonJackson's Action ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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.)

Flora Purim500 Miles High At Montreux ... LP
Milestone, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
One of Flora Purim's 70s classics – an album recorded with that soaring breezy vocal style that she virtually invented – heard here before it got too old, and too copied by other singers! The set's a live one, filled with lots of energy – and recorded before a very enthusiastic crowd at the 1974 Montreux Jazz Fest. Players include David Amaro on guitar, Pat Rebillot and Wagner Tiso on electric piano and organ, Ron Carter on bass, Roberta Silva on drums, Airto on a range of percussion – and guest vocals and a bit of guitar from Milton Nascimento on one track! Airto, Nascimento, and Tiso arranged the set – and tracks include "O Cantador", "Bridge", "500 Miles High", "Cravo E Canela", "Baia", "Uri", and "Jive Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

Flora PurimButterfly Dreams ... LP
Milestone, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that include Joe Henderson, George Duke, and Stanley Clarke – coming together with some great Brazilian percussion from husband Airto. The tracks are tight and jazzy – and include "Light As A Feather", "Dr. Jive (parts 1 & 2)", "Butterfly Dreams", "Moon Dreams", and "Dindi". This is the stuff that virtually defined the Brazilian/American groove of the 70s – and it's still light years ahead of any of Flora's many imitators! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJukebox Mambo 2 – Rumba & Afro-Latin Accented Rhythm & Blues 1949 to 1960 (6 x 10" albums – plus book & bonus tracks) ... LP
Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. Sealed ... $59.99
The great second volume of this genre-defining series – a set that looks at a really unique strain of R&B in the 50s – a special sort of groove that mixed together jazz, Latin, and other soulful styles! There's plenty of percussion on most of these numbers, but there's also lots of bluesy elements too – electric guitar, tenor, and firey piano – mixed with soulful vocals that leap wonderfully out of the vivid arrangements – at a level that really makes these tunes pretty darn unique! Some cuts have a vibe that's like jump blues, taking a drink of 50s Latin – while others almost have a Spanish Harlem sort of hybrid, but years before the later Latin Soul scene – a really vibrant mix of modes that keeps things exciting throughout. Titles include "All I Have Is You" by Johnny Oliver, "I Love Your Many Ways" by Lincoln Chase, "Calypso Blues" by Zilla Mayes, "Jimmy's Jive" by Jimmy Nolen, "All Night Long" by Four Blazes, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Satisfied" by Billy Emerson, "Chano" by Ron Rico with Sax Kari, "Later Gator" by Freddie Mitchell, "Denga Denga" by Ashton Savoy, "Gee I Love You" by John McKinnye & The Premiers, and "Summertime" by Red Saunders. Totally amazing package, too – in an "album", like a set of vintage 78s – with 6 pieces of 10" vinyl that play at 45rpm for excellent sound, and a very cool booklet of notes, too. Also includes four tracks not on the other 2LP or CD sets! LP, Vinyl record album
(Still in the outer shipping box.)

✨✧ Jo JonesJo Jones Trio ... LP
Everest, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real classic from drummer Jo Jones – and the kind of a spare session that really lets his work on drums come to the forefront! Jo's working here with Ray Bryant on piano and brother Tommy Bryant on bass – in a mode that's got some of the soulful undercurrents of the Bryant recordings of the time, but which is also a bit more rhythmically-oriented – in a way that let's Jones' swinging skills dominate a bit more. Titles include "Jive At Five", "Greensleeves", "Philadelphia Bound", "I Got Rhythm", "Bebop Irishman", and "Little Susie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Quincy Jones' best for Mercury Records in the 60s – a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Lord BuckleyMost Immaculately Hip Aristocrat ... LP
Straight, 1956. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest recordings ever made of the mad mad Lord Buckley! The album was issued in the late 60s for Frank Zappa's Straight label – but it features material recorded more than a decade before – at a time when Buckley was still alive, and one of the most bad-rapping comedian's to ever hit a stage. The approach is somewhat freer than some of Buckley's earlier sides – allowing the ersatz comedian a chance to really riff on a variety of subjects – talking with almost a jazz improvisational energy, in the way that made him a big favorite for the beat generation. The overall nature of the record is kind of hard to pin down – as it's not really comedy, just more of a freewheeling spoken session that's a bit jive, a bit beatnik, and plenty darn crazy! Titles include "The Raven", "The King Of Bad Cats", "Governor Slugwell", and "The Hip Einie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has splitting on the top seam.)
