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 (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1981. Used ... $19.99
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 ... $3.99
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 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".

Steve KhanTightrope ... CD
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

Steve KhanTightrope/Blue Man/Arrows ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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".

Cherries, 2012. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Guess what? They DO make 'em like they used to – as Amalia steps out here on two tracks that easily rival the best female soul from the early 80s! "Welcome To Me" feels just like Chaka Khan on Warner Brothers from 1982 – complete with sweet keyboards that percolate wonderfully alongside the soaring lead vocals! "Bonafide" is even better – a funky funky number with a really partyful groove right from the start – romping in a wonderful 80s way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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

Billy Cobham live – very alive, in fact – and jamming like the "muther" promised in the title! The set's filled with heavy drums from Cobham, set in a group that also features fusion heavyweights Alphonso Johnson on bass, Steve Khan on guitar, Tom Scott on tenor and soprano sax, and Mark Soskin on keyboards – all working in ways that are more strongly in the funky jazz side of the fusion spectrum than some of Cobham's more rockish sets – with lots of lean, angular grooves that sound especially nice on the saxes and keyboards! Titles include "Anteres The Star", "Shadows", "Bahama Mama", "Some Punk Funk", "On A Magic Carpet Ride", and "Spindrift". 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.

Slide HamptonDrum Suite ... LP
Epic, 1962. Very Good- ... $2.99
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".

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".

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

2CDs, and a heck of a lot of great tunes selected and mixed by Dimitri From Paris! The album has Dimitri following up the first Playboy Mansion compilation with a sublime blend of older club classics and some newer underground numbers – all infused with the soulful house spirit of the crackling Parisian scene! 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!

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 strange and wonderful mix of tracks – one that goes past the familiar disco you might expect from the title, and which also includes some crossover pop tracks from the 80s – all in a mix of rhythms that easily moves between mellow, midtempo, and more upbeat grooving! The selection here is by DJ Osshy, who's unabashedly in love with 80s pop – which means he can effortlessly lay a soul tune alongside an AOR number, and get some really great results in the process – especially given that some of these tracks are ones that we'd normally expect to find on such a collection. The 2CD package features 36 titles in all – divided into a "bitter side" and a "sweet side" – and tracks include "I Miss You" by Klymaxx, "After The Love Has Gone" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Sweet Baby" by Stanley Clarke & George Duke, "A Woman Needs Love" by Ray Parker Jr, "One On One" by Hall & Oates, "There'll Be Sad Songs" by Billy Ocean, "Almost Paradise" by Mike Reno & Ann Wilson, "Drive" by The Cars, "Reality" by Richard Saunderson, "Ooo La La" by Teena Marie, "Sara" by Starship, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "Between The Sheets" by Isley Brothers, "It Will Be Alright" by Airplay, "Baby I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley" by Will To Power, "Through The Fire" by Chaka Khan, "Babe" by Styx, and "You Got It All" by The Jets.

Warner, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure modern soul group on Warner, working here with production by Freddie Perren. Nothing that standout, but the record's not a bad one – and was cut during a time when Warner were pushing into the soul market with some good lesser-known acts, possibly to beef up their catalog after the success they were having with artists like Prince and Chaka Khan. Includes the tracks "We Gon' Make You Feel Good", "Love is Growing Stronger", "Keep Trying", and "Nobody's Waiting". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milton MarshMonism ... CD
Strata East/Manufactured, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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 ... Out Of Stock
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
