✨✧ John Handy/Ali Akbar KhanKaruna Supreme ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
After making some great jazz records in the 60's, and some crossover R&B albums in the 70's, John Handy recorded this beautiful album for MPS which paired his soulful alto with Indian melodies and rhythms, played by a small group led by Ali Akbar Khan. The set is unlike anything else Handy had ever done, and is a haunting blend of jazz and Indian music that works perfectly – and which provides a perfect showcase for Handy's rich soulful playing. The three tracks are all quite long, and titles include "Karuna Supreme", "Ganesha's Jubilee Dance", and "The Soul And The Atma". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s US pressing, in a non-gatefold cover.)

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.

Chaka KhanWhat Cha' Gonna Do For Me ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good ... $2.99
Damn wonderful solo work from Chaka Khan – a record that holds onto all the best funky elements of her 70s music with Rufus – but also finds a way to put the lady even more strongly out front! There's maybe a bit more of a clubby vibe here than before, but never in a cheesy or commercial way – as the mighty Arif Mardin is at the production helm, and arguably does an even better job with Chaka than on his classic productions for Aretha Franklin! The vocals soar out beautifully, but the grooves are every bit as great – with these warm jazzy touches that make the album instantly seductive – and a level of sophistication that's kept this one strong for many many years. Titles include the wonderful stepper "Any Old Sunday", plus "We Got Each Other", "We Can Work It Out", "Night Moods", "What Cha Gonna Do For Me", and "Father He Said" – plus "I Know You, I Live You", a big Chicago house cut from the old days.

Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good ... $1.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve KhanTightrope ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
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

Ustad Ali Akbar KhanEmperor Of Melody ... CD
El (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
There's a definite sense of melody on these vintage recordings from Ali Akbar Khan – tunes that ring out with lots of spare sitar, and virtually no other instrumentation at all! The titles here are all quite long – mellow, introspective ragas that have a very meditative feel – and which, in some way, offer up a looser approach to the form than some of the more widely-circulated recordings of Indian music at the time – even at the few spots when tablas and other instrumentation stimulate the sound a bit more. The first half of the set features Khan's music for the film Devi – on titles that include "Raga Todi", "Raga Lajwanti", and "Raga Bhairavi" – and tracks on the second half include "Raga Nat Bhairav", "Raga Asavari", and "Raga Jaijaiwanti".

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

Tappan Zee/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... $18.99 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.

Yet here, Arif's out on his own in an instrumental setting – working in this very hip, very groovy late 60s mode that ties together all the best currents happening on Atlantic Records at the time – soul music, mod jazz, and even a bit of Latin and Brazil – all wrapped up into a sparkling set of arrangements from the man himself! Titles include a number of covers, but redone by Mardin in a really great way – and tracks include the great original "Midnight Walk" – plus "Glass Onion", "Sympathy For the Devil", "Walk On By", "Listen Here", and "Ain't No Way".

Strata East/Manufactured, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99
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". A lost masterpiece! CD

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

The rest of the lineup is equally great – with alto from David Sanborn, more horns from The Brecker Brothers, and even a bit of work from Steve Khan – all fusion superstars in their own right, but who never eclipse Esther's lead. 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".

PrincePrince ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good ... $29.99
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a 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 records, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later sets – or maybe 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 & Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

There almost seems to be more emphasis on the instrumentation than before – and the album's got a warmly funky groove that definitely carries on the 70s Rufus tradition, but cleans things up a bit for the 80s generation – especially lean on the rhythms and the keyboards! Tony Maiden and David Wolinski handle the vocals, often in a compressed way that's mixed right down in the music – but the real charm here comes from the rhythms and the sweet jazzy licks in the grooves. Titles include "Tonight We Love", "Can I Show You", "What Is It", "Afterwards", "We Got The Way", "Party Til You're Broke", "Love Is Taking Over", and "Secret Love". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing debut from Rufus – a group so great, they were virtually a genre unto themselves during the 70s! Rufus came from the same totally hip Chicago scene that gave the world Minnie Riperton and Earth Wind & Fire – and like both of those greats, these guys have a way of drawing from mighty deep roots, then creating an incredible sound that's completely fresh – a mode that's funky in all the right places, plenty soulful from Chaka Khan's great lead vocals, yet fused together with a freshness that marks Rufus as one of the most inventive acts of their generation! And sure, lots of other folks copped their act as the years went on – but nobody could do it like these guys – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Haulin Coal", "Satisfied", "Feel Good", "Keep It Coming", "Slip N Slide", and "There's No Tellin".

DIW, 1991. Used ... $0.99
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

Over the years, the reach of Thievery Corporation has gotten mighty large – so much so that the duo's almost better known for their remix work with other artists than the sometimes-sporadic recordings released under their own name!

The group's kind of a mixed vocal/instrumental one – an ensemble that features equal emphasis on vocal harmonies and instrumental musings – all with a sound that's quite unique! Some tracks are instrumental, others have the vocals right up front – especially those that feature the contributions of the Men On A Mission quartet – a vocal group that's steeped in gospel influences, but more directed towards the spiritual jazz leanings of Lancaster and Jamal. The rest of the lineup includes percussion, piano, and additional vocals from Reverend Joe Craddock – and the set bills itself as "a devotional journey through jazz history from Africa to Coltrane" – which is a pretty good description of the set! Titles include "Dahomey Dance", "It's Gonna Rain", "Follow Me", "Rhythm In The Dark", "Sweet Evil", "Christian Automobile", "Hard Times", and "The Creator Has A Master Plan". CD

VariousDisco Deutschland Disco – Disco, Funk & Philly Anthems From Germany 1975 to 1980 ... CD
Marina (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A German disco extravaganza – and a much-needed look at one of the strongest 70s club outlets next to the US! At first glance, the mix of Germany and disco might seem like an unlikely fit – but the German scene gave the world some key disco hits back in the 70s, as well as a huge variety of underground and lesser-known gems! The German approach was often a bit heavier on electronics than the American one – modes that were slightly pulled from prog and fusion that was bubbling around earlier in the decade, then fused into a cleaner, leaner, more rhythmic groove – and often topped with vocals in English, sometimes by American vocalists living overseas. Even the older German instrumentalists got in on the act – and the 70s saw both jazz and easy players hitting a disco groove with a new approach to their music! This great collection – put together by the folks who gave us The In Kraut – showcases all these aspects of the scene, and brings together a few hits with a lot more obscure gems – many of which we've never seen on this side of the Atlantic before. Titles include "Opium" by Peter Thomas, "Philodendron" by Veronika Fischer, "Illegal Toys" by Alfie Khan Sound Orchestra, "Lovemachine" by Supermax, "You've Got The Power (parts 1 & 2)" by Su Kramer, "Fashion Pack" by Amanda Lear, "Weider Zusammen" by Marianne Rosenberg, "Sex World" by Berry Lipman, "Get On The Funk Train (part 1)" by Munich Machine, "I Can't Move No Mountains" by James Last, "Treat Me Like A Woman" by Jackie Carter, "Feedback Brother" by Peter Herbholzheimer Rhythm Combination & Brass, "Disco Cisco" by Carsten Bohn's Bandstand, and "Love In A Sleeper" by Silver Convention.
