Don Cherry & Latif KhanMusic/Sangam (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Europa/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1978/1982. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the earthiest albums ever from Don Cherry – a set of duets with tabla player Latif Khan – recorded in Paris in the late 70s, and featuring Cherry in a range of soulful modes! Don doesn't just play his usual trumpet – but keyboards, flute, gong, and other percussion as well – a really incredible blend of instruments that's often overdubbed, so that Cherry's already adding in a few layers of his own sound before Khan comes in with some really rocking work on tablas! The blend of global and jazz influences is perfect – and the album's as much of a treasure as Cherry's equally important Sonet sessions of the 70s. Titles include "Rhythm 58 1/4", "One Dance", "Air Mail", "Untitled", and "Sangam". LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. Used ... $9.99
A really unique album for Chaka Khan – one in which she teams up with a host of jazz artists to craft a classic-styled set of vocals! Given that Chaka was at the height of her 80s groove solo career at the time of this one, the move is a surprising one – but also a great chance for Chaka to show that she has a lot more to offer than just pop chops, as she sounds pretty darn great scatting on these classic jazz numbers. And as proof that the set was definitely a serious jazz effort, Chaka's got a great lineup on the album – a group that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, Chick Corea on piano, and Lenny White on drums. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "All Of Me", "Take The A Train", "Hire Wire", "The Aerialist", and "I Hear Music". CD

Sean KhanSamba Para Florence (Henry Wu rmx)/Things To Say (Ben Hauke rmx) ... 12-inch
Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $12.99
A bouncing little cut from Sean Khan – one that's skittish, but with a more put-together feel than older broken beat – partly because there's a wonderful keyboard line that kind of swells, dips, and soars to hold the whole thing together! "Things To Say" has a different feel, but follows a similar path – almost these waves of sound that layer together – and in doing so, make for a mighty great groove! There's vocals on that cut, too – a female singer who gives the song a nice added dimension in the middle. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $13.99
Vocals from Omar and a mix from 4Hero – two London elements we've loved for years – both of which make the single a stunner! The single spins out brilliantly – and also features this very spiritual tenor part in the middle – a kind of cosmic London vibe that almost takes us back to our favorite sounds from Nathan Haines a decade ago! Nicola Conte makes real magic with "There Is Something New" – a cut that really makes the single an all-star affair! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Steve KhanTightrope/Blue Man/Arrows ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A trio of classics from Steve Khan – all brought together in a single package! First up is Tightrope – beautiful fusion from guitarist Steve Khan – one of those great 70s players who could play things tight, yet still keep an edge! The album's got a well-produced groove – the same sort of soulful undercurrent you'd get in other Columbia fusion sets of the period – yet Khan's guitar has a bit more rasp than most, less of the sanded-down, clean-toned notes that you'd get from some of his contemporaries. Bob James produced, and you can certainly hear his ear on some of the keyboard parts – especially the sweet Fender Rhodes, handled by both James and Don Grolnick. Titles include "Some Punk Funk", "Darlin Darlin Baby", "The Big Ones", "Star Chamber", "Tightrope", and "Soft Summer Breeze". Next up is Blue Man – a sweet 70s fusion set from guitarist Steve Khan! The set's got that best Columbia Records groove from the time – a sound that could easily cross over to fusion fans on both sides of the tracks – those who dig soulful undercurrents, thanks to the album's keyboards from Don Grolnick – and those who might like a bit more rockish-lines, thanks to Khan's raspy edge on his guitar. Things never get too jamming, and there's a nice sense of space that definitely helps keep the soul of the record intact – on tracks that include "Some Downtime", "Daily Bulls", "Daily Valley", and "The Little Ones". Arrows is the last in a classic trilogy of late 70s fusion albums that Steve Khan cut for Columbia records – and a set that really has him bringing his sound together in a wonderful way! Khan was working with Steely Dan on the Gaucho album at the time of the recordings – testified by Donald Fagan's notes to the record – and he really seems to have picked up their large overall musical vision, that way of making things perfect, but never in a slick style – working here with other fusion giants who include Don Grolnick on Fender Rhodes, Michael Brecker on tenor and soprano sax, and Randy Brecker on trumpet – plus lots of great drums from Steve Gadd. Titles include the extended "City Suite", plus "Candles", "Daily Village", "Calling", and "Some Arrows". CD

Rufus & Chaka KhanStreet Player ... CD
MCA, 1978. Used ... $19.99
Stunning work from Rufus & Chaka Khan – still very much at the height of their powers on this late 70s release – and still doing things at a level that nobody else can touch! The blend of jazz and soul is completely sublime – given a bit of extra help on arrangements by Clare Fischer and Seawind, both talents who are also at their best during this 70s stretch too – but the real power still comes from the core energy of Rufus, and the way they can effortlessly fuse these slinky, soulful grooves – and, of course, from the massive Chaka Khan – every bit the shining jewel in the group's crown, yet still not broken off as a superdiva on her own. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Street Player", "Stranger To Love", "Turn", "Change Your Ways", "Take Time", "Turn", and "Best Of Your Heart". CD

VariousStreet Sounds Presents – Jazz Funk Classics – Compiled By Morgan Khan (3CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99
Don't think "jazz funk", think more "funky soul", or "soulful jazz" – as the collection here is filled with classic 70s gems that really blur the boundary between styles! Almost all these cuts have a strong jazz base at the core, but also bring in lots of funk and soul elements as well – from tight rhythms, to soaring vocals, to other key elements that helped lots of these tracks crossover big at the time – and still stay strong all these many years later! The package is a reworking of a classic series from the London scene in the 80s – a set of collections that was key to the rare groove scene at the time – and the 3CD set features 30 tracks that include "Whistle Bump" by Deodato, "Black Is The Color" by Wilbert Longmire, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "Westchester Lady" by Bob James, "Let The Music Play" by Charles Earland, "Strut" by Chico Hamilton, "Rock Creek Park" by The Blackbyrds, "Inherit The Wind" by Wilton Felder with Bobby Womack, "Harlem River Drive" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington, "Love Will Bring Us Back Together Again" by Roy Ayers, "Love Has Come Around" by Donald Byrd, "Expansions" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Always There" by Ronnie Laws, "Open Your Mind" by Kleeer, and lots lots more!

Brecker BrothersBottom Line Archive Series 1976 ... CD
Bottom Line, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Wonderful live work from the legendary Brecker Brothers – cut at a time when the duo were still totally hard and funky – maybe even more so here than on their studio albums of the time! The live setting really brings out a crackle in the group – lots of funky rhythms at the bottom,a nd these breakout solos from Randy on trumpet and Michael on tenor – as well as a young David Sanborn on alto, Steve Khan on guitar, and Don Grolnick on Fender Rhodes and Hammond! Most vocals are kind of chorus chants by the whole group instead of a solo singer – vamping strongly in this way that really fits the groove nicely. Titles include "Rocks", "Cactus", "Sneakin Up Behind You", "It Took A Long Time", "Keep It Steady", "Night Flight", and "Jungle Walk". CD

Terri Lyne CarringtonMosaic Project – Love & Soul ... CD
Concord, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The worthy, perhaps even superior second set in jazzy percussionist Terri Lyne Carrington's Mosaic Project – appropriately titled Love & Soul – with one of the most impressive rosters of women in soul you'd ever expect to see in one place! Guests include Natalie Cole, Chaka Khan, Ledisi, Valerie Simpson, Lizz Wright, Nancy Wilson, Jaguar Wright and others – and Carrington does a great job of both catering to each woman's strengths as a singer, but also slyly pushing them into surprising settings. We're really digging the evolution of this mosaic! Includes "Come Sunday" with Natalie Cole, "I'm A Fool To Want You", "For You To Love" with Oleta Adams, "Somebody Told A Lie" with Valerie Simpson, :This Too Will Pass" with Lalah Hathaway, "Get To Know You" with Ledisi, "When I Found You" with Lizz Wright and more.

Mark ColbySerpentine Fire/One Good Turn ... CD
Tappan Zee/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of sweet funky fusion gems from Mark Colby – back to back on a single CD! Serpentine Fire is an overlooked gem from Bob James' Tappan Zee empire of the 70s – that label that provided the perfect platform for artists to grow a bit more after the CTI years! Reedman Mark Colby is a newcomer to this scene, but hits a groove that's instantly in the best CTI/Kudu mode – with funky jazz backings that often have that laidback, spacious style that's more soulful than jamming fusion – served up by players who include Bob James on Fender Rhodes and piano, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, Steve Gadd on drums, and Hiram Bullock on some electric guitar. Colby himself plays tenor and soprano sax – and titles include a nice remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "Serpentine Fire" – plus "King Tut", "Renegade", "On & On", and "Daydreamer". On One Good Turn, reedman Mark Colby really comes into his own – crafting sweet lines on tenor and soprano sax, in modes that extend previous 70s fusion work from artists like Stanley Turrentine or Grover Washington Jr! Like both of those giants, Colby gets great backing here in a spacious electric style that allows plenty of room for the solos in the lead – with artists who include Bob James and Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, and Mike Mainieri on vibes. Titles include "Capativa", "Village Zoo", "Peace Of Mind", "Skat Talk", and "Macbeth". CD

Billie HolidayComplete Commodore (2CD set) ... CD
GRP, Late 30s/Early 40s. Used 2CD ... $8.99
An amazing little set – and the first to really do such a bang-up job on the Billie Holiday sides recorded for the Decca and Commodore labels in the 1940s! The 3CD set is beautifully put together – with one disc of Commodore material, and two more of Decca sides – and unlike some other collections of this nature, only master takes and issued singles are included – so each of the 52 tracks is different, and you don't just hear Billie singing alternate takes over and over! Plus, the packaging is sublime – book-like, with a cloth hardcover finish – which encloses the 3CDs, as well as notes by Ashley Khan, some great vintage photos, and full discographical details on all the sessions. The evolution in sound and style is amazing – so that by the end of the Decca years, you've really heard Holiday grow as an artist – emerging to the greatness that would make her one of the most important singers of the 20th century. Titles include "The Blues Are Brewin", "Solitude", "Do Your Duty", "Gimme A Pigfoot", "There Is No Greater Love", "I'll Get By", "My Old Flame", "Billie's Blues", "As Time Goes By", "He's Funny That Way", "I'll Be Seeing You", "My Man", "I Loves You Porgy", "Baby Get Lost", "You Can't Lose A Broken Heart", and "My Sweet Hunk O Trash".

Charles LloydDiscovery! ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful bit of soul jazz – much less trippy than some of Charles Lloyd's later work, and handled with a soulful flair that's a mix of Coltrane spiritualism, with an even larger dose of the sort of post-Trane experiments in jazz that would crop up during the early 70s on smaller independent labels – a scene that Lloyd really influenced with albums like this! The record's quite advanced for its time – and features Charles' tenor and flute next to piano by Don Friedman, bass by either Richard Davis or Eddie Khan, and drums by Roy Haynes or JC Moses – on titles that include Lloyd's classic "Forest Flower", plus "Little Peace", "Love Song to A Baby", "Sweet Georgia Bright", and "Bizarre".

Ellen McIlwaineWe the People ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine! Ellen's certainly not a soul artist – but she's got a particularly soulful approach to folk rock – one that's made her a favorite of groovers worldwide in the past few decades, thanks to a big push from Gilles Peterson, and the club scene in Tokyo and Germany! The approach on this record is kind of like a mixture between Chaka Khan and Joni Mitchell – lots of upbeat grooves, mixed with jazzy acoustic guitar and some wonderfully soaring vocals – in a style that needs to be heard to be fully understood. The standout cut is the amazing "Jimmy Jean", a soaring jazzy dance cut with unbelievable vocals – and other nice ones include "Sliding", "Ain't No Two Ways", and "All To You". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Esther Phillips' biggest comeback albums from the 70s – a tight batch of jazzy soul, with backing by funky fusion players like Steve Khan, David Sanborn, and The Brecker Brothers – plus guitarist Joe Beck, who almost gets equal billing on the original album cover! Titles include a good version of Grover Washington's "Mr Magic" – with the same funky undercurrent as the original – plus the tracks "One Night Affair", "I Can Stand A Little Rain", "Hurtin House", "Turn Around Look At Me", and a semi-hit version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes".

Minnie RipertonPerfect Angel ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of mellow compressed LA styles and slicker funkier numbers that do the same thing for her Chicago-trained vocals that Rufus' backing did for that of Chaka Khan. Of course, it helps that she's got some superbly sensitive writing and arranging help by husband Richard Rudolph – and Stevie Wonder's definitely lurking in the background, too. Includes Minnie's huge crossover hit "Loving You", a perfect showcase for her beautiful 5 octave voice, plus the tracks "Our Lives", "Every Time He Comes Around", "Perfect Angel", and "Reasons".

An obscure vocalist who did some background work and cut this one and only album as a solo star, Sue Ann was one of a few decent modern soul acts to record for Warner Brothers during the early 70s, when the label seemed to be making a brief bid for the R&B market. The album's got a sound that's a bit in the Deniece Williams mode, with a little bit of Chaka Khan and Minnie Riperton vocalizing, and some decent arrangements that have an 80s groove moder sound to them. Tracks include "Sweet Talk", "Close Dance", "Don't Throw It All Away", "I Wanna Be The One", "Really Not That Ready", and "My Baby, My". LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Wilson definitely shines here – stepping off a great 70s run of work for film and TV soundtracks – then using a similar style here in the studio! The album's a jazz set, but tracks are relatively short – and focus more on ensemble passages at points, but still allow for key solo work from Dave Grusin on piano, Jerome Richardson on alto, Marvin Stamm on trumpet, Steve Khan on guitar, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Sunny Burke on Fender Rhodes. Titles include a great version of his "Bob Newhart Theme" – quite different than the one used in the show – plus the cuts "Barrio", "Blue Light", "Lou Grant Theme", "Sail On", and "Come On & Shine".

VariousTropicalia – A Brazilian Revolution In Sound ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
An amazing introduction to one of the most significant cultural movements in the latter half of the 20th Century – the groundbreaking years of Tropicalia in late 60s Brazil! The music and legacy of Tropicalia are referenced often, but hardly ever presented this well – and this package is everything we could have hoped for as an introduction to the movement – filled with key late 60s works from the most important musicians associated with Tropicalia – an great starting point for the movement that's filled with most essential tracks! And even if you have some of this stuff already on individual albums, it really sounds great together – a rich document of this amazing musical moment. Titles include "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tuareg" and "Sebastiana" by Gal Costa, "A Minha Menina" and "Panis Et Circenses" by Os Mutantes, "Alfo Mega" and "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, "Gloria" and "Jimmy Renda-Se" by Tom Ze, "Procissao" by Gilberto Gil, "Ave Genghis Khan" by Os Mutantes, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Quero Sambal Meu Bem" by Tom Ze, "Lost In The Paradise" by Caetano Veloso, "Bat Macumba" by Os Mutantes, "Domingo No Parque" by Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes, and "Irene" by Caetano Veloso.

✨✧ Aretha FranklinLove All The Hurt Away ... LP
Arista, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s gem from Aretha Franklin – one of the best of her years at Arista Records, thanks to solid help in the studio from the mighty Arif Mardin! Mardin's in perfect form here – the same blend of older soul and jazzier, more sophisticated styles that he was also bringing to Chaka Khan at the time – although Franklin's arguably more deserving of his talents, given her long relationship with the producer! There's a full, mature feel here – one that really gets Aretha back in gear as a singer, and shows off her talents to a new generation in new ways – yet all without trying too hard for a crossover hit. Tunes include a few originals by Franklin, and titles include "Kind Of Man", "Whole Lot Of Me", "Love All The Hurt Away", "You Can't Always Get What You Want", "It's My Turn", "There's A Star For Everyone", and "Hold On I'm Coming".

Warner, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second LP, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you could really hear the seeds of his later efforts – and really remarkable, unique, and fascinating record that stands up with some of his best work, and bucks all late 70s trends and cliches in pop, soul and funk. In some ways this is one of our favorite Prince LPs, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later LPs, or maybe it's because the hit "I Wanna Be Your Lover" has such a mad groove! "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" has the sly sound that would run throughout the rest of Prince's better work for years to come and Chaka Khan would later cover "I Feel for You" and hit large with it in the 80s. Also includes "Sexy Dancer", "With You" and "When We're Dancing Close And Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

The tracks here are a bit longer than some of Ben's studio sides for the label at the time – and almost hearken back to the more open flow of his Blue Thumb years – with plenty of room not only for Sidran's great vocals, but also from instrumental contributions from Steve Khan on guitar, Mike Mainieri on vibes, and the Brecker Brothers on horns. Titles include "I Remember Clifford", "Eat It", "Song For A Sucker Like You", "Midnight Tango/Walking With The Blues", and "Come Together". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, promo sticker, and an old price sticker.)

✨✧ Eleventh House with Larry CoryellAspects ... LP
Arista, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky fusion with some really hard-ripping guitar from Larry Coryell – a mainstream masterpiece from the Eleventh House ensemble! The set's got a tight sound that puts Coryell's guitar in the forefront, but which also respects contributions from members that include Gerry Brown on drums, John Lee on bass, Mike Mandel on keyboards, and Terumasa Hino on trumpet – all coming together with a tightness that's every bit the best part of mainstream 70s fusion. The record's also got some great guest work too – including appearances from David Sanborn on alto, Michael Brecker on tenor, Randy Brecker on trumpet, and Steve Khan on acoustic guitar – and titles include "Titus", "Pyramids", "Yin Yang", "Aspects", "Ain't It Is", and "Woman Of Truth & Future". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ VariousCalypso Craze (6CD/DVD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1956/1957. New Copy 6CD & DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning look at the early years of calypso music – not the first rootsy wave of music from the islands, but the second wave that spread across the global mainstream – when Caribbean styles got greater distribution on a host of bigger labels than before, which also led to a number of more popular artists picking up calypso modes as well! This package really runs the full gamut of calypso in the mid 50s – and includes key tracks by originators like The Lion, Lord Invader, Duke Of Iron, Lloyd Thomas, Lord Flea, The Talbot Brothers, Blind Blake, Frank Holder, and others – mixed with stylized remakes by folks who range from Tito Puente to Louis Farrakhan, Robert Mitchum, Eartha Kitt, Hank Snow, Louis Armstrong, The Tarriers, Kingston Trio, Rosemary Clooney, and many more! As always with Bear Family, this set is more than complete – a 6CD treasure trove of music that features 173 tracks that really show the height of the calypso craze in the 50s – plus a bonus DVD with the film Calypso Joe from 1957 – a full length film that's never been issued outside its theatrical release, starring Angie Dickenson and Herb Jeffries, with performances by Duke Of Iron and The Easy Riders. The DVD also features four soundies performances as well – and the whole thing comes with a lavish 172 page, full-color hardcover book that's almost worth the price of admission itself. CD

✨✧ Jack MontroseBlues & Vanilla ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
A standout session from Jack Montrose – one of the most overlooked players on the west coast scene of the 50s! Montrose's tenor work is always a treat, but here, he's playing in an unusual setting that includes Red Norvo on vibes, Joe Maini on alto sax, and Jim Hall on guitar – all working with Jack on a set of tunes that have the tight arrangements of his work on Atlantic and Pacific Jazz – yet which also open up with some interesting instrumental twists that break the mold a bit! Side one of the set features the 18 minute tune "Concertino Do Camera" – a nicely extended track that offers plenty of room for solo work – and the other shorter tracks still offer up strong solos too – on titles that include "Bernie's Tune", "A Dandy Line", "Bockhanal", and "For The Fairest".
