✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive, 1989. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime 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, consise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. 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

✨✧ MystikalTarantula ... LP
Jive, 2001. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Probably the best full length album from the rugged, ragged, ragefully rhymin' Mystikal – a set that lacks a classic on par with "Shake Ya Ass", but still holds plenty of other hot productions by the then young-and-hungry Neptunes, Scott Storch, Rockwilder and KLC. Tracks include "Bouncin' Back", "Tarantula" feat Butch Cassidy, "If It Ain't Live, It Ain't Me", "P***y Crook", "Smoke One", "Big Truck Driver", "Alright", "I Get It Started" feat Meth & Red, "Go'Head", "That's The S**t" and more.

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyPhenix ... LP
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
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".

Count BasieStanding Ovation ... LP
Dot, 1969. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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".

Frank Hunter & The HuntsmenWatermelon Man ... LP
Epic, 1963. Very Good ... $11.99
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".

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

Corky McClerkinSearchin For The Soul ... LP
WinCor, 1983. Very Good ... $59.99
A classic set of soul jazz from Chicago – a rare indie date recorded in the early 80s, but with a tight and swinging feel that's more 70s jazz funk than you might think! Corky's on Yamaha keyboards, and he's backed by a hip group of Chicago players that includes Curtis Prince on drums, Artee Duke Payne on saxes, and Stephen Harris on guitars – all working together in a tightly rhythmic sound with some slight spiritual undercurrents – almost in the same territory as James Mason on his legendary record from a few years before! As with that set, there's a bit of polish here, but never too much – a balance that makes the record a wonderfully mature record with a depth that keeps it going for years. Byron Woods sings lead vocals on the album's jazz dance classic "Searching For Soul" – and a few other tracks feature Theresa Davis on lead vocals. Other titles include "Everything Must Change", "Open Wide", "Passion", "Jive Mama T", "Off C", and "Mirror Mirror". LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuffLive At The Jazz Workshop ... LP
Prestige, Mid 60s. 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!

✨✧ VariousLove Is Love – R&B, Highlife, & Dry Guitar Music ... LP
Mississippi, 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A very unusual little collection – one that brings together guitar-based numbers from a variety of African sources – then packages the whole thing with a relatively discreet sort of presentation! The styles here are mostly pre-funk, but offer up some creative use of the guitar – or the "dry guitar", if you will – in tracks that mostly have a relatively spare sort of sound, and which mix guitar with bits of percussion, vocals, flute, and other instrumentation. Titles include "Sax Jive" by Leribe, "Castle Beer" by William Siwale & Friends, "Jumbe" by Elija Ishmael, "Tumshukuru" by W John Ondolo, "Ulayinda" by George Kazoka, "Khukhaua" by Jimmy Amukamua, and "Love Is Love" by Alemanyo Eshintay.

✨✧ Back DoorBack Door ... LP
Warner, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

United Artists, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. 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

✨✧ Willis JacksonJackson's Action ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Flora PurimButterfly Dreams ... LP
Milestone, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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".

✨✧ Miles DavisNefertiti ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing.)

✨✧ Llans Thelwell & The CelestialsLlans Plays It All ... LP
SOUL/Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Tom WaitsForeign Affairs ... LP
Asylum, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the stellar earlier albums from Tom Waits – with lots of slower, piano-led bluesy and jazzy ballads – on top of the jivey, gravelly charisma of his voice and songwriting. The mix of that gruff voice and the fairly pretty instrumentation is prime Waits, from this period. This is the 40s, 50s and 60s-inspired Waits at his near-finest. Includes "Cinny's Waltz", "Muriel", "I Never Talk To Strangers", "A Sight For Sore Eyes", "Barber Shop", Foreign Affair" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
