Dave Hoekstra, with Chaka Khan & Paul NatkinPeoples Place – Soul Food Restaurants and Reminiscences from the Civil Rights Era to Today (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago Review Press, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A totally wonderful little book – one that traces the relationship between culture, politics, and soul food during the Civil Rights era – a long legacy that continues to have strong local power all these many years later! The book is very lovingly done – rich in history, and filled with full color photographs, both contemporary and vintage – as author Dave Hoekstra surveys key soul food emporiums from cities that include Memphis, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington, New York, Detroit, and Atlanta – with individual chapters on Ben's Chili Bowl, Sylvia's Restaurant, Baker's Keyboard Lounge, Dooky Chase's, Sweetie Pie's, Africanne On Maine, Original Soul Vegetarian, New Bethel Baptist Church Kitchen, Ruby's Restaurant, Marvin, The Four Way, and many other storied sites – just our memory of which is enough to make our stomachs' rumble! Hoekstra brings the same care to the subject that he's used in his many years of newspaper work – and the book also features an introduction from Chaka Khan, new photos from Paul Natkin, and even a few recipes from the restaurants too. 224 pages, full color, hardcover.

Khan JamalDrum Dance To The Motherland ... CD
Dogtown/Eremite, 1972. Used ... $6.99
A rare early session from vibist Khan Jamal – recorded with his Philly-based Creative Arts Ensemble collective! The group follows strongly in the spirit of similar combos from Chicago and St Louis – particularly the latter – and Jamal's group is working here in a mode that's initiated by the original sonic experiments of the AACM, but taken to deeper, more organic levels. Given Khan's later work, the thing that's most surprising here is the sound texture of the record – because although seemingly improvised, there's also a greater feel towards a whole here – a spacey, ethereal quality that reminds us of some of Sun Ra's most creative moments. Jamal plays vibes, marimba, and clarinet – and the rest of the group includes Monette Sudler on guitar and percussion, Alex Ellison on drums, Dwight James on drums and clarinet, and Billy Mills on both electric and acoustic bass. Although not overly electric, there's a shimmering quality to the music here – as if the production abstracted the original acoustic sound with weird echo and other techniques! Titles include "Inner Peace", "Drum Dance", "Cosmic Echoes", and "Breath Of Life". CD

Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1982. Used ... $6.99
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". Expanded CD features an alternate of "All Of Me" and the track "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" – as well as good notes and an interview. CD

A blue man, without his group – and 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".

Steve KhanEyewitness/Modern Times/Casa Loco ... CD
Antilles/BGO (UK), 1981/1982/1983. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A trio of early 80s albums from fusion giant Steve Khan – all lined up in a single collection! First up is Eyewitness – an early 80s effort from guitarist Steve Khan – a set recorded after some big records for Columbia, and one that follows very strongly in their legacy! Khan's super-deft here, but also able to create these washes of sound as much as some bold lines on his instrument – moving between the modes freely in the company of a tight quartet – with Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Jordan on drums, and Manolo Badrena on percussion – all much more in the loose, open style of fusion from the mid 70s than you might guess from the date of the record. Titles include "Where's Mumphrey", "Dr Slump", "Guy Lafleur", and "Auxilary Police". Modern Times has Steve Khan stretching out even more htan before – working on a set of three long tracks that really expand his ideas strongly – almost pushing his guitar sense of tone and color into some of the territory Pat Metheny was exploring at the time! The group is Khan's great quartet with Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Jordan on drums, and Manolo Badrena on percussoin – and titles include "Blades", "The Blue Shadow", "Modern Times", and "Penguin Village". Casa Loco is a record that's maybe a bit more electric on the rhythms than some of Steve Khan's previous sets – thanks to use of Simmons drums by drummer Steve Jordan – but a record that's still got Steve himself playing very strongly in the lead! Khan's as deft as ever here, working out these swirling chords that brew together in waves of sound – that special place a few fusion artists found themselves after the rock-jamming years of the 70s. The album features a bit of vocals from percussionist Manolo Badrena – which come across surprisingly well – and titles include "The Suitcase", "Uncle Roy", "Some Sharks", "Breakaway", and "Casa Loco".

Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
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". 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

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

Steve Dahl with Dave Hoekstra & Paul NatkinDisco Demolition – The Night Disco Died (hardcover) ... Book
Curbside Splendor, 2016. New Copy ... $24.99 34.95
The story of one of the most legendary nights in Chicago music – told by the man who made it all happen! Disco Demolition was conceived as a one-off joke about the popularity of disco music in the late 70s – but the event, which involved attendees bringing records for destruction to a White Sox game on a Friday night – soon became a touchstone for racial and cultural tensions, with a legacy that's lasted far longer than anyone might have expected! Radio DJ Steve Dahl – who created and headlined the event – presents his story, and a bit of an apology, alongside other important voices on the Chicago scene – all given a sense of structure by journalist Dave Hoekstra, and illustrated with amazing photos of the event by Paul Natkin. The photos alone are worth the price of the book – beautiful black and white images that really get at the grittiness of Chicago at the time – and which are also helpful alongside the larger writing that contextualizes the city, the music scene, Chicago radio, and the south side in 1979. Bob Odenkirk provides the introduction – and the book also features recollections from folks like Rick Nielsen, Jim Peterik, Dennis DeYoung, Chaka Khan, and other Chicago music figures. 194 pages, hardcover, with lots of black and white photos.

Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $6.99
Amazing avant garde material from Dolphy – and never issued before in any form! The concert was recorded in 1963 at the University of Illinois, and it features some of the most "out" playing we've ever heard from Dolphy. He's backed by a trio comprised of Herbie Hancock, Eddie Khan, and JC Moses – and the main solos are on flute, alto, and bass clarinet, which Dolphy plays to amazing effect! 6 tracks feature the core quartet playing alone with Dolphy, and a 7th features backing by a larger group comprised of University Of Illinois students, including a very young Cecil Bridgewater! This is definitely the kind of lost material we're happy to see unearthed – and it's packaged and notated with the usual high Blue Note level of quality. Titles include "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "South Street Exit", "Iron Man", "Red Planet", and "GW". CD

Epic, 1962. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of Slide Hampton's greatest records of all time – a totally hip batch of tracks recorded with a large group that reminds us of some of Max Roach's ensembles of the early 60s! No surprise, Roach is a key part of the album – pounding away with frenzy on Hampton's 5-part "Drum Suite", and working well here on other tracks with players that include Yusef Lateef and George Coleman on tenor, Freddie Hubbard and Hobart Dotson on trumpet, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Eddie Khan on bass, and both Hampton and Benjamin Jacobs-El on trombones. There's a righteous, majestic energy to most of the tracks – not just the pivotal "Drum Suite" in five parts, but also the originals "Gallery Groove" and "Fump" – plus versions of "Lover", "Our Waltz", and "Stella By Starlight".

Titles include three different variations on the famous theme "No Problem" – plus two takes on the moody "The Feeling Of Love", and the cuts "Jazz Vendor" and "Subway Inn". CD

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".

Strata East/Manufactured, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Rare spiritual jazz by reed player Milton Marsh – one of the harder-to-find albums on Strata East – and one of just a couple incredible records to Marsh's name! Obscurity aside, this is prime Strata East – with some sprawling moments in a larger band formation that go just far out enough, but an overall approach that's pretty inside, very much in the label's strong 70s soul jazz tradition. There's a pretty large cast of players in action, including some legendary ones like saxophonist David Ware, percussionist Greg Bandy, Cedric Lawson on piano and others. Titles include "Vonda's Tune", the incredible "Monism" with its spoken word excerpt from Hazrat Inayat Khan's Sufi Message, nicely read by Marsh himself over an amazing mix of soulful strings and tense interplay, plus "Metamorphosis", "Community Music", "Sabotage 3 Preparations" and "Ode to Nzinga".

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

Max RoachConversations (Speak, Brother, Speak/Deeds, Not Words) ... LP
Fantasy, 1958/1962. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
Nice Prestige 2-fer from the 70s that brings together 2 great albums. Speak, Brother, Speak is solid righteous jazz from the Max Roach of the 60s – recorded at a time when the player was really breaking away from his straighter hardbop roots, and delving deeper into more freely soulful jazz expression! It features 2 long tracks – each a side apiece – played by Max with a quartet that includes Clifford Jordan on tenor, Eddie Khan on bass, and Mal Waldron on piano. Jordan really takes off on the album – demonstrating a great ability for long blowing and creative exploration that was only hinted at on his other studio sessions at the time, and which really points the way towards some of his freer-thinking records of the 70s. Waldron is great too – bringing in some nicely darker colors that really help to round out the sound. Titles include "Speak Brother Speak" and "A Variation". Deeds, Not Words is another classic Max Roach session, from a bit earlier in 1958, with Booker Little, George Coleman, Art Davis, and Ray Draper. The album's got a couple of great originals by Bill Lee – "Jodie's Cha Cha" and "Deeds, Not Words" – plus Draper's classic "Filide", which is one of those tracks that you know you've heard, but can never recognize. Also included is "Conversation", a very cool solo by Roach on the drums! LP, Vinyl record album

DIW, 1991. Used ... $4.99
Easily one of the best M-Base related sessions for DIW from the early 90s – and certainly one that's the most free from the dated touches of the others! The real strength here is the strong saxophone work – done by Von Freeman on tenor, and both Steve Coleman and Greg Osby on alto – coming together with the guitar of David Gilmore, bass of Kenny Davis, and drums of Marvin Smitty Smith – all in a setting that offers plenty of bite on the reeds! The presence of Freeman is quite unusual for a date like this, and he really deepens the sound by sometimes holding back from the too-angular rhythms of the rest of the group – almost (if we dare) a sense of Chicago soul to cut through the too-arty New York inclinations of the rest of the group! Titles include "Khan", "Mr Lucky", "3 Against 2", "It's You", and "Thebes". CD

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

Disc 1 is a "laidback selection" – featuring numbers from the 70s, 80s, and more recent years – titles that include "Seasons Of Love (Blaze club mix)" by Blaze, "Feel Up (Danny Tenaglia rmx)" by Grace Jones, "Lust" by Rinder & Lewis, "Can't Give You Up" by Deep Sensation, "Makeda (DJ Spinna & Ticklah mix)" by Les Nubians, "Get It Up For Love (Dim's re-edit)" by Tata Vega, "Ibo Lele (Ginen tet red mix)" by Jephte Guillaume, "Twilight" by Maze, and "So Good So Right (Dim's re-edit)" by Imagination. Disc 2 is more uptempo and modern – with titles that include "Don't Leave Me This Way (Dim's re-edit)" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Bienvenida" by AlexKid, "Changin (Blaze Shelter mix)" by Linda Clifford, "So Good To Know" by Best Friends Around, "All Good (Can 7 Supermarket mix)" by De La Soul with Chaka Khan, "Candidate For Love" by TS Monk, "Fran Mig Till Dig (Marcus Enochson rmx)" by Emma Nilsdotter, "The Body Theme" by Evidence, and "Jazz Room" by Paul Murphy & Marc Woolford Project. 25 tracks in all – and Hugh Hefner never had it so good!

VariousBombay 2 – Electric Vindaloo ... LP
Motel, 1970s/2001. Very Good+ 2LP ... $16.99
The fantastic follow-up to one of our best-selling titles! Like it's precursor, this second volume to Bombay The Hard Way takes 70s Bollywood brownsploitation film funk tracks and dialogue, and remixes them to pump up the beats, pull out the grooves, and create a more coherent sound overall. There's a more complicated sound to this volume that pushes the Indian-inspired grooves even further – and which actually creates some more discreet tunes that would work well on a heavy dancefloor, or as a soundtrack for your own exotic adventures! Remixers include Kid Koala, Steinski, Pak Man, Eynomite D, and Mix Master Mike – and titles include "Bionic Kakaa", "Theme From Twin Sheiks", "Bollywood B-Boy Battle, "Sexy Mother Fakir", "Inspector Jay's Big Score", "Electric Vindaloo", "Oil Street Blues", "Chakra Khan", and "TJ Hookah".

VariousBoogie Woogie Disco ... CD
Sony (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
A pretty cool mix of cuts from the glory days of the disco scene – not just the familiar American tracks you might expect, but also some surprising gems from overseas, too – European disco numbers, and a few Japanese moments too – as you might guess from the manga-styled look of the cover! The sound here is definitely heavy on the more crossover side of disco – not underground club cuts, but the kind of tracks that would easily draw in audiences from the more mainstream dancefloors – even though lots of these songs are still pretty unfamiliar! A great batch of pop disco numbers, some we'd never heard before – with titles that include "Desperately" by The Love Machine, "Magic Eyes" by The Eastern Gang, "Just Wanna Dance Tonight" by Trix, "Chinese Kung Fu" by Banzaii, "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Boys Town Gang, "Fly High Little Butterfly" by Arabesque, "Soul Dracula" by Hot Blood, "Sky High" by Jigsaw, "Sexy Bus Stop" by Dr Dragon & The Oriental Express, "Himiko" by Passionata, "Clap Your Hands Together" by Funky Bureau, "Moskau" by Genghis Khan, and "Breakaway" by Earnie Bush.

Hongthong Dao-UdonBump Lam Phloen – Essential Hongthong Dao-Udon ... LP
EM (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
A beautiful Thai singer with a voice that maybe doesn't need any other instrumentation – given its incredibly haunting quality – but one who sounds even groovier once the music kicks in to play! The work here is mostly from the late 70s, but often has a feel that's really timeless – especially on those numbers that feature Hongthong floating out with almost no backing at all – and on other tracks, there's sort of groovy late 60s vibe – a feel that's more like Cambodian sounds from years before, with a groove that provides a really illuminating setting for the vocals. The collection is short, but really tremendous – ten revelatory tracks that will immediately show you there's still plenty of amazing music to discover on this planet! Titles include "Nong Ni Na", "Bump Lam Phloen", "Hongthong Khanong Lam", "Bo Mi Phi Thi Isan", "Isan", and "Sa-On Siang Phin". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettDeath & The Flower/Backhand ... CD
Impulse (Germany), 1974/1975. New Copy ... $8.99
A pair of Impulse albums from Keith Jarrett – back to back on a single CD! First up is Death & The Flower – really wonderful early work from Keith Jarrett – a spiritually-driven session that's free from the cliches of his later work! The album's a spectacular group effort – one that has Jarrett playing piano, percussion, and sax – in an ensemble that also includes Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, and Guilherme Franco. There's a lightly percussive sound underneath most of the tracks – spare, organic, almost earthy – as the tunes open up and flower over a long passage of time – gently stretching out in that beautiful post-Coltrane Impulse spiritual approach to jazz of the early to mid 70s. Great stuff throughout, and with 3 long tracks that include "Great Bird", "Prayer", and "Death & The Flower". Backhand is prime Keith Jarrett on Impulse Records – and a still-wonderful session that features work by Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and Paul Motian! The sound here is a bit more focused than on some of Jarrett's earlier Impulse sides – but still has that rich and organic sound overall – blending instruments from all players with a sound that's spontaneous and flowing. Jarrett himself plays a bit of percussion and wood flute – and Redman also plays maracas and musette! Tracks are long, and include "Kuum", "Inflight", "Vapallia", and "Backhand". CD

Ahmad ZahirAhmad Zahir Volumes 2 & 3 – The King of 70s Afghan Pop ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. Used 2CDs ... $9.99
Some of the hippest sounds ever recorded on the Afghan scene – and a great reminder that the nation's got some standout music if you know where to look! The package combines the second and third volumes in Pharaway's look at Ahmad Zahir – a charismatic singer who rose to huge fame in the 70s, but still has a sound that's pretty darn fresh to our Western ears – a mix of psychedelic production, exotic instrumentation, and some surprisingly compelling lead vocals – which tend to hold us rapt, even though we can't understand the language! Instrumentation often features plenty of raw percussion and offbeat reed lines – mixed with keyboards and guitar, to create this pan-generational sound that's really unique. Titles include "Shaady Kunaid Aye Dostan", "Ahange Zindegi, "Az Nazo Che Maykhande", "Baduhait Konam", "Begzaro Ta Begeeryam", "Dil Ze Sowda", "Che Koosh Amadi Safaa Kardi", "Tu Barayem Mogadasi", "Duzdi Eshgam", "Ansiman Begoyed", "Kai Bashad Kai", and "Nay Nay Hargez".
