✨✧ DaileyIs This Love ... LP
Federal Green, Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
A rare gospel set from A Glenn Dailey – one done in a mode that mixes modern soul with spiritual messages – all at a level that makes the whole thing feel like a great indie set of quiet storm soul! Tunes are mostly laidback, and move at a really mellow, late nite pace – slow-building, usually with just spare instrumentation on keyboards – as the vocals are layered together, often with Dailey providing harmonies to his own lead – on the kind of tunes that, with just a slight twist in lyrics, would almost be more suited as love songs and ballads! Titles include "Give Them Your Love", "After The Rain", "Is This Love", "Inspiration", and both vocal and instrumental versions of "Keep The Faith". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)

✨✧ Wynton KellyKelly At Midnight ... CD
Vee Jay, 1960. Used ... $6.99
Midnite is right – as the session's a moody, mellow late nite one – just spare trio material by Wynton, played in a group that features Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums! The titles are all nice and long – and really let Kelly stretch out on the keys – working in a mode that's lyrical and soulful – on a set of titles that include include Babs Gonzales' "Weird Lullaby", plus "Skatin", "Temperance", "On Stage", and "Pot Luck".

Karin KrogMany Faces Of Karin Krog – Recordings 1967 to 2017 (6CD set) ... CD
Meantime (Norway), Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2010s. New Copy 6CD ... $42.99
A fantastic tribute to the legendary Karin Krog – one of our favorite jazz singers of all time – and maybe one of the most creative talents to emerge from the European jazz scene in the past 50 years! Karin's not just a regular singer – she's a hell of a collaborator, and a great experimentalist who's always willing to try out new sounds and styles – modes she's explored since her initial recordings of the 60s, and the wonderful legacy of music she's given us on record from that time onwards – which still results in fantastic new music in recent years too! This package goes way beyond any other Krog collection we've ever seen – not just because it offers up differing discs that look at her many musical "faces" – but also because it brings together recordings for a number of different labels across a great span of time – all to really show the full range of her music! Even if you've got as many of Karin's records as we do, there's plenty that's new here too – and the well-done package divides each disc up into a special theme – with standard material, key collaborations, vocal experiments, and more. The set includes work with John Surman, Steve Kuhn, Marty Paich, Georgie Fame, Don Ellis, Slide Hampton, Red Mitchell, Dexter Gordon, Kenny Drew, Bengt Hallberg, Archie Shepp, and others – and one CD features just spare duets with musicians, and another features some great bigger band material. 59 tracks in all – with loads of surprises!

Jimmy McGriff & Junior ParkerDudes Doin Business ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Sweet funky blues from the team of Junior Parker and Jimmy McGriff – sounding better here maybe than on any of their other albums! Junior's got a sweet approach to the lyrics that grooves nicely with Jimmy's Hammond – and the set's got some full and soulful arrangements by Horace Ott that really tighten things up nicely – getting past any of the blues cliches that might ruin things, and instead going for that lean groove that McGriff was really hitting at the end of the 60s! Tracks include "Workin", "Inner Light", "Losing Battle", "Drownin On Dry Land", and "It Ain't What'cha Got". LP, Vinyl record album

Junior ParkerYou Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A fitting title to this one – as it virtually describes the standard that the blues business was operating on during the early 70s – as artists came out of the shadows and found big audiences on college campuses, rock clubs, and other crossover scenes! The concept is carried to the Nth degree on the cover – which has a front image of a young Asian boy eating a big watermelon, Sambo-style – and the back cover features notes that say things like "Chinese kids like watermelon, Irish like bagels, black people like Jewish rye, and today everybody loves the Blues." Fortunately, this comic packaging doesn't affect the album too much – as Junior's still in the fine form he was at the end of the 60s, cruising between blues and soul, with a slight touch of jazz, in a unique way that sounds better to our ears than the work of most of his contemporaries. Titles include "Five Long Years", "That's Alright", "Way Back Home", "Man Or Mouse", and "I Like Your Style". LP, Vinyl record album

Little Junior Parker/Bobby Blue BlandDouble Feature – The Barefoot Rock & You Got Me ... LP
Duke, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Cool LP that brings together Duke singles by Bobby Blue Bland and Junior Parker, in a "double feature" set that devotes a side apiece to material by each of them. The sound is hard bluesy soul, with tracks like "Next Time You See Me", "Wondering", "It's My Life, Baby", "I Smell Trouble", and "Farther Up The Road". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label Duke pressing.)

Fred KarlinWestworld ... LP
MGM, 1973. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great little movie – with a pretty nice little score! This early Michael Crichton film is quite similar, in overall pacing and theme, to Jurassic Park – but it's much schlockier, as you'd imagine from the time, and from the music on the disc, which is mostly fake "western" themes, in keeping with the fake western setting of the film. Titles include "Hovercraft Muzak", "Chase From Westworld", "Medieval World", "Robot Repair", and "The Gunslinger". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Ruby RushtonTrudi's Songbook – Volume One ... CD
22A (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Ruby Rushton is the name of the group, not an individual member – and it's also a name that's sure to be at the top of your list once you hear this incredible debut! The album's got this fantastic blend of funky and spiritual grooves – all played with a quality that's soulful, but effortless – almost vintage, but never trying to sound forced or copycat at all – just this easy-flowing groove that's incredible, and which kind of gives the record an instant classic sound from the very first note! Edward Cawthorne is the ersatz leader – as he wrote and arranged the whole set – but his work on flute and saxes is just one part of the album's wonderful groove, which also includes trumpet from Nick Walters, keyboards from Aidan Shepherd, bass from Fergus Ireland, drums from Eddie Hick, and percussion from Joseph Deenmamode – a lineup who seem to be tied together in soul and spirit right from the start. The London-based group are rock-solid throughout – hitting territory that's maybe more soulful than some of the spiritual currents of the Gondwana Records scene a few years before, but with an equal sort of depth. Titles include "Trudi's Mood", "Moonlight Woman", "Prayer For Yusef", "Where Are You Now", "Elephant & Castle", and "The Camel's Back". CD

Les McCannLes McCann Trio – Live In Paris – 28 Julliet 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
A really great live set from the legendary Les McCann – recorded in Paris at the start of the 60s, and with a much grittier feel than some of his studio records of the time! The tracks are often long, and quite freewheeling – and you really get a sense of what a charismatic presence Les had on the bandstand – as he not only plays with all of the soulful fire you'd expect, but sometimes sings, and also verbalizes with these grunts and calls that really open things up along with his groove! Lyrical lines soar out alongside that heavy left hand groove that made McCann so great – and the trio features his classic lineup with Ron Jefferson on drums and the amazing Herbie Lewis on bass – the latter of whom seems to get a lot more exposure here than on most other recordings! Titles include "Vacushna", "A Little 3/4 Time For God & Co", "Out Of This World", "Oh Them Golden Gaters", "Deed I Do", "Doreen Don't Cry", "Come On & Get That Church", "The Truth", and "I Am Love".

✨✧ VariousNigeria Freedom Sounds – Calypso, Highlife, Apala, Mambo, & Juju – Popular Music & The Birth Of Independent Nigeria 1960 to 1963 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the usual Nigerian funk collection you might expect – as the music here is from the years before Fela Kuti and other artists exploded onto international 70s fame – and instead, come from a time where the Nigerian scene was busy drinking up influences from a range of other cultures too! As a result, there's a fair bit of Latin and Caribbean elements at play – a bit of that Cuban influence that touched West African music so strongly in the 60s, and other post-colonial elements too – all mixed with regional styles that provide a very particular flavor – on tracks that are heavy on rhythms, jazzy inflections, and lots of great work on electric guitar and horns! The package is the first we've really seen to give this period its due – and the set is presented with the usual stunning Soul Jazz Approach – very detailed notes, and a superb track list that includes "Ariwo" by Chris Ajilo & His Cubanos, "Lumumba Calypso" by EC Arinze, "Save For A Rainy Day" by Sammy Akpabot & His All Stars, "You Cheat Me" by Godwin Omobuwa & His Soundmakers, "Omo Alara" by IK Dairo & His Blue Spots, "Owo Ni Fari" by Heavy Haruna Ishola & His Group, "Cool Cats Invitation" by Victor Ola-Lya & His Cool Cats, and "Baby I Tire" by Charles Iwegbue & His Archibogs.

Onom Agemo & The Disco JumpersLiquid Love (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Agogo (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99 30.98
Timeless psychedelic dancefloor grooves from Berlin-based quintet Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers! Liquid Love has a pretty unique sound, blending danceable soul jazz and Afro Funk-inspired rhythms & winds with vintage organs & synths – making for a cool mix of moods! It's playful psych soul instrumentals at the core, but the synth tones give it pretty distinctive vibe overall. Includes "Liquid Love", "Opus", "Kurifuna", "The Disco Jumpers" and multi-part epic "Somebody" (Parts 1-4). LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene AmmonsBig Bad Jug ... LP
Prestige, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
Jug's big and bad here in tone – and the style is nicely complicated at times – a bit more open-ended and electric than before, with a sound that's almost like the shift that Stanley Turrentine was making during his years at CTI! There's still a bit of the previous Prestige funk in the mix – thanks to drums from Billy Cobham, and organ from Sonny Phillips – but the group also includes up-and-comer Maynard Parker on guitar, who gets in some nicely snakey lines at times – slinking through the tunes with a warmly chromatic edge that's mighty nice, and which sets the tune for some of Ammons' more laidback solo moments. His tenor's still as strong as ever, though – blown with a beautiful sense of tone, on tracks that include "Lady Mama", "Big Bad Jug", "Lucille", "Fly Me", and "Fuzz" – plus a nice version of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" with a sweetly gentle break!

Emilio Aparicio MoogExpansion Galactica ... CD
Mental Experience (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Really great sounds from an artist with "moog" in his name – and a fair bit in his music as well! Emilio Aparicio Moog recorded these tracks on the Guatemala scene in the 70s – and the titles were mostly issued as ultra-rare 45s, but are brought together here in one heck of a great album of moogy madness – a set that rivals all the late 60s brilliance of better-known artists like Mort Garson or Jean Jacques Perry – with equally groovy results! Like the best of the moog purveyors of his time, Emilio Aparicio works at a level that's very unique – not just moogy covers of familiar pop hits, but new tunes that really make the most of the space age instrument – at a level that's filled with upbeat, very rhythmic tunes that have the keyboard exploding with analogue charms at every twist and turn. Titles include "La Ceremonia", "Expansion Galactica", "Brujeira", "Bo Bo Bo Beau", "Transfiguracion Del Iniciado", "Paren La Contaminacion Del Aire", "El Misterio De Tiahuanaco", and "Los Visitantes De Sirio".

JC BrooksNeon Jungle ... CD
Rock Ridge, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
JC Brooks parts company with the Uptown Sound – and comes across here with a completely different sound! Brooks is a Chicago soul singer whose risen to great acclaim with that previous group – who've given him a retro-styled, old school soul approach – but here, he comes across with a more contemporary vibe, in a 21st Century funky soul mode that has some sweet electric touches around the edges, while still letting Brooks really soar upfront! The shift is an interesting one, and a great one too – the kind of move that may well get JC some of the bigger attention he deserves. Titles include "Jungle", "Edge Of Night", "ONO", "One For Someone", "Get Gone", "Watch Me", "Playing With Fire", and "Stumble In The Dark". CD

Lucky Brown & The SGsMesquite Beat/Justice ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), 2017. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
One of the headiest cuts we've ever heard from Lucky Brown – mostly because The SGs have hit this righteous blend of funk and spiritual jazz – almost exotic in parts, but still very grooving overall – but with lots of room for great solos from the group members! "Justice" is even more righteous, and maybe a little less funky – but in a good way that makes it more of a standout spiritual tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record
