✨✧ Paul HornPlenty Of Horn (House Of Horn/Plenty Of Horn/bonus tracks) ... CD
Dot/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1957/1958. Used 2CD ... $19.99
Some of the earliest work as a leader from Paul Horn – the inventive reed player who really sparkled in Chico Hamilton's group of the mid 50s, then went on to make some even more compelling records on his own! The first album in the set is House Of Horn – recorded for Dot Records in 1957, and a wonderfully rich tribute to Paul's mighty talents. The groove of the record is especially hard to pin down – as some tunes are light and whimsical, others a bit more dark and rhythmic – always shifting moods with that restless sort of energy that Horn brought to his music – an early searching use of the reeds that really stands out. Paul plays flute, alto sax, piccolo, and clarinet – and other players include Larry Bunker on vibes, Gerry Wiggins on piano, John Pisano on guitar, Fred Katz on cello, and Chico Hamilton on drums – helping bring some compelling rhythmic complexity to the album. Titles include "A Soldier's Dream", "Day By Day", "Siddartha", "Pony Tale", "House Of Horn", "Interlude", and "The Golden Princess". Next up is Plenty Of Horn – a record that has Paul Horn breaking even more strongly from the style of his previous boss, Chico Hamilton – into a range of modes and sounds that really push the boundaries of 50s jazz on the LA scene! There's a richly complicated feel to some of the music – an evocative sound that's almost in film score territory – as Horn's inventive work on flutes, clarinet, and a bit of alto sax is blended with cool rhythms from Mongo Santamaria on congas and Shelly Manne on drums – then touched with vibes from Larry Bunker, guitar from Billy Bean, and bass from Red Mitchell. Titles include "Blues for Tom", "Yesterdays", "The Smith Family", "Chloe", "Romanze", and "A Parable". The package also features a fair bit of bonus tracks too – tracks from the Stars Of Jazz TV Show with Calvin Jackson on piano and Fred Katz on cello – including "Lover Man", "Pony Tale", "Mood Improvisation", "Jive At Five" and "My Old Flame". Other bonus tracks including "Give Me The Simple Life" and "Willow Weep For Me" – from the album Down Beat Jazz Concert – with Horn on flute, Dick Katz on piano, Don Bagley on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums.

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The Mgs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Curcuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

VariousTrip – Created By Tom Middleton – Vol 2 ... CD
Family Recordings (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A mighty heady Trip from the mighty Tom Middleton – and a set that's every bit as great as his first entry in the series! The overall feel here is a bit more contemporary than Tom's first Trip collection – but the mix of modes, styles, and sounds is equally diverse – with tunes next to tunes next to tunes in ways that we never would have expected – all unfolding with a creative sense of joy and delight in music that's really amazing! As with other volumes, this package is overflowing with songs – 46 in all, over the 2CDs – and mixed together in ways that are relatively subtle, and which still leave most of the core tune intact. Titles include "This Is Your Life" by Laurie Johnson, "Batacuda Dub" by Skeewiff, "The Galactica Suite" by Simon Grey, "Finally" by Novika, "Bucovina" by Shantel, "We Can Fly" by Nicolay, "Left Bank Two" by Wayne Hill, "Barbatuques" by Barbappapa's Groove, "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana, "Follow The Leader" by Eric B & Rakim, "The Wisp" by Simian, "Elle Et Moi" by Cicada, "Taking Me Over" by Schmoov, "Hairy Trees" by Goldfrapp, "Transmit Fantastic" by Danny Breaks, "Here's What's Left" by RJD2, "SIP" by Boozoo Bajou, "The Martian Chronicles" by Stanley Myers, and "The Other World" by Jakatta.

✨✧ VariousReady Or Not – Deep Jazz Grooves From The CBC Radio Canada Archives 1967-1977 ... CD
Do Right (Canada), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at a scene that's hardly ever gotten its due – and a wealth of beautiful jazz tracks from our brothers to the north! Canada's always done a better job of supporting its artists with national assistance than the US – so it's no surprise that some of the best jazz recordings of the Canadian scene come from the archives of it's state-owned broadcasting company – a key force in supporting great music of all types, but especially important here when it comes to jazz! The work on the set is all hand-picked by John Kong – of both the Do Right label, and the international groove underground – and it's all chosen with an ear towards the kind of older jazz tracks that are playing big on the international scene these days. Think of the inspiration for Schema, or the jazz tracks selected by Gilles Peterson, and you'll have a great idea of the grooves on this set! Titles include "Star Of India" by Electric Ninja Group, "Saphir" by Nick Ayoub, "Ready Or Not" by Kathryn Moses, "Lawrence Of Arabia" by Fred Stone, "Voices" by Al Michalek Quartet, "Consuelo" by Pierre Nadeau Trio, "The Family" by Billy Robinson, and "Soya" by Pierre Leduc.
