Carmen LundyGood Morning Kiss ... LP
Blackhawk, 1985. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A fantastic record – one of the best jazz vocal records of the 80s, and a real bright spot in an otherwise dim decade! The set is Carmen's debut – and it's a masterful self-produced effort that immediately put her in the ranks of the ultra-hip, ultra-soulful jazz crowd – singers like Betty Carter and Dee Dee Bridgewater, both of whom took a lot longer to sound this good than Carmen! The record is set in a perfect setting – Carmen working closely with musicians headed up by brother Curtis on bass, and including soulful players like Bobby Watson, Rene McLean, Cecil Bridgewater, Jon Faddis, and Harry Whitaker. The whole thing's great – the kind of righteous vocal set that few singer ever seem to make this well – and titles include some great originals like "Good Morning Kiss", "Time is Love", and "Perfect Stranger" – plus excellent versions of "Dindi", "Love For Sale", and "The Lamp Is Low".

MtumeKiss This World Goodbye/In Search Of The Rainbow Seekers ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A pair of great Mtume albums for Epic – paired up in a sweet 2CD package! Kiss This World Goodbye is early crossover set from Mtume – one that still holds onto some of the elements first forged in the spiritual jazz underground of the early 70s, yet one that also starts to showcase more of the tighter soul groove he'd burst into prominence in the early 80s! The blend is a great one, and makes the album one of Mtume's most compelling records – as even amidst some of the more grooving numbers, there's some great offbeat elements at work too – almost putting the record in the territory of work by Roy Ayers or Edwin Birdsong. The mighty Hubert Eaves contributes lots of great keyboards to the record, and famous partner Reggie Lucas plays guitar – while Mtume himself sings along with his percussion, and also gets some female vocal help from Tawatha. Titles include the sublime "The Closer I Get To You" – plus "Just Funnin", "Kiss This World Goodbye", "Love Lock", "Metal Flake Mind", and "This Is Your World". In Search Of The Rainbow Seekers is another of Mtume's sweet mellow soul records of the era – and it's a nice one! Like Norman Connors, another soul jazz drummer who decided to go for a smooth soul approach, Mtume has a nice laidback feel on here, with good jazzy production backing up a number of vocal tracks aimed at the modern soul crowd. Hubert Eaves plays some nice mellow keyboards, and Tawatha joins Mtume on vocals. Cuts include "We're Gonna Make It This Time", "So You Wanna Be A Star", "Anticipatin", "Everything Good To Me" and "You Can't Wait For Love". CD

Rongetz FoundationKiss Kiss Double Jab ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. New Copy ... $19.99
An even hipper album than the first Rongetz Foundation outing – which we totally loved – thanks to work from classic musicians who include Gary Bartz on alto, Steve Turre on trombone, and Monnette Sudler on guitar! The music is a great blend of bass-heavy rhythms (acoustic bass, that is), jazzy flourishes, and these excellent vocals from Lilli Cooper – an artist we don't know at all, but who brings a real underground soul vibe to the whole thing – with an old school approach that really lives up to the instrumentation! The album already won us over by including one of our favorite Charles Earland tunes ever – the sublime "Murilley", a lost gem from his late 70s years, given a great vocal reading for the set – and other titles are all original, and include "Cab Samba", "Kiss Kiss Double Jab", "Marshmallow Throne", "Such A Morning Person", and "Sonia Poem", which features a recitation from Sonia Sanchez.

Doris AllenShell Of A Woman – The Legendary Playground Sessions ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Mid 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Powerhouse soul from singer Doris Allen – who made a bit of a splash in the late 60s southern soul scene with duet partner Big John Hamilton – but who's own work from that time and a couple decades later have been under acknowledged in the digital era until now! The first half of the CD features the late 60s work, and it's wonderful – produced by Finley Duncan at Duncan's Playground Studios – featuring a couple of the Hamilton duets, but it's Doris's show. She can both shout out soulfully to the heavens and reign it in for more delicate numbers, and the often gritty soul backing of drums, organ and horns are of the finest caliber. The second half of the set jumps to the mid 80s, and the cleaner, smoother sounds of that era – still produced by Duncan – and Allen's voice as impeccable as earlier. Titles include "A Shell Of A Woman", "Kiss Yourself For Me", "Let A Little Love In", "A Place In My Heart", "Them Changes", "Bright Star", "Candy From A Baby", "Treat Me Like A Woman", "Full Time Fool", "Night Time Is The Right Time" and more, plus 9 previously unreleased tracks, including "Clean Up Woman", "Birmingham Jail", "Ashes Won't Burn" and more. 23 tracks in all!

✨✧ Gene AmmonsMakes It Happen ... LP
Cadet, 1950. Very Good+ ... $3.99
An interesting album for Gene Ammons – one that was issued in the late 60s with a very sexy-looking cover, but which actually features recordings of much earlier vintage! The sides on the set were recorded in 1950, and they've got a sound that's moody, echoey, and which shows the soulfulness that Ammons had at this early period – a rich contribution to the tenor sound at the time – caught by a young Chess Records with plenty of dark overtones that makes the material differ somewhat from Gene's dates of the time for Prestige. Titles include "Once In A While", "It's The Talk Of The Town", "My Foolish Heart", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Can Anyone Explain", and "It's You Or No One". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersLet's Do It ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Pure magic from the height of Roy Ayers' classic 70s run on Polydor – a record that's filled with warm, jazzy grooves – all served up in that unique style that Roy was forging at the time! The album perfectly balances dancefloor tracks with mellower numbers – stepping out one minute with a funky groove on the bottom, then sliding into some slinkier laidback styles that are equally great. William Allen handles the arrangements with Roy, and does the strings himself – and also plays some monstrous bass on most numbers, which really brings up the rhythms from the bottom! Titles include the killer groovers "Sweet Tears", "When Is Real Real", "Let's Do It", and "Freaky Deaky" – and the warm mellow cuts "You Came Into My Life", "Kiss", and "Melody Maker". CD

Erykah BaduMama's Gun ... CD
Universal, 2000. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff from Eryka Badu – sweet, mellow, soulful, and with a very righteous vibe! The record's got some impeccable production – and the best cuts have a stripped-down groove that mixes keyboards and vocals in a way that's similar to recent work by D'Angelo and Jill Scott. Eryka's all her own woman, though – and she keeps things very real with her own unique vocal style and phrasing on the lyrics. Loads of great tracks – and titles include "Kiss Me On My Neck", "Didn't Cha Know", "My Life", "AD 2000", "Bag Lady", "In Love With You", and "Booty". CD

Ray BarrettoSenor 007 ... LP
United Artists, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during the period too. But despite that simple gimmick, it's a great little set – with a quality level that goes way beyond Bond soundtracks, or the usual from Barretto at the time! The tracks are all hard and groovy, with an excellent jazz feel – and some killer arranging from Ray that's right up there with the work he did for his legendary Charanga Moderna album! You may recognize the song titles – but their versions here are superb, and the album's filled with many many wonderful moments that step out with mad rhythms and great jazzy touches. Titles include "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "OO7", "Search For Vulcan", "Thunderball", and "Goldfinger". Nice "spy" shot of Ray on the cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Captain BeefheartSun, Zoom, Spark – 1970 to 1972 (Lick My Decals Off/Spotlight Kid/Clear Spot/Outtakes) (4LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Rhino, Early 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $69.99 99.98
The Reprise Records run of Captain Beefheart – presented here in a special package that also features a full album of never-issued rare material as well! Beefheart at Reprise was a real high point – as the Captain was still full of all the primal, gritty elements of the previous years – but also refining the sound of the Magic Band as well – to a point where the increased musicianship only got more complex, yet helped focus the energy of the songs as well! The whole thing's worth it alone for the mindblowing combination of roots and modern on the guitar work – and the progression over three albums is one of the most striking you'll see at the time for any artist, in any style. The package features the full three albums Lick My Decals Off Baby, The Spotlight Kid, and Clear Spot – and the bonus Outtakes CD features titles that include "Little Scratch", "Kiss Where I Kain't", "The Witch Doctor Life (inst take)", "Harry Irene", "Alice In Blunderland (alt)", "Two Rips In A Haystack/Kiss Me My Love", "Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hit A Man (early mix)", "Dirty Blue Gene (alt 1)", "Pompadour Swamp/Suction Prints", and "I Can't Do This Unless I Can Do This/Seam Crooked Sam".

Pattie BrooksLove Shook/Our Ms Brooks ... CD
Casablanca/FTG, 1977/1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A disco double-header! First up is Love Shook – classic disco from Pattie Brooks, and a soaring 70s set that's right up there with the best Casablanca Records grooves of the time! The rhythms here are upbeat and lively – strings mixed in with quick-stepping rhythms, all set to the vocals of Pattie, which have just the right sort of flow to take off nicely in the setting! Titles include "Love Shook", "Let's Make Love To The Music", "Girl Don't Make Me Wait", and a totally cool "Pop Collage Medley", which features bits of "Popcorn" and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye". Next is Our Ms Brooks – a record that has Pattie reunited with the Soul Galore production team – working with backdrops that are full, but never too overblown – right in that perfect Casablanca mode! Titles include "Heartbreak In Disguise", "After Dark", "This Is The House Where Love Died", and "The Back-up Singer". CD

Thomas ClausenBlue Rain ... CD

An album that's hitting strong on just about every level – not just the well-crafted piano work of Thomas Clausen, but also the full, rich bass of Jesper Lundgaard – who seems to match every moment of Clausen's inspiration, and fill things in with these tones that are completely captivating! Drummer Billy Hart makes a strong contribution too – that new sense of space and swing that we've heard on some of his own great records of late – and the group also gets wonderful tenor from Tomas Franck, who brings an edge that we don't always hear on Clausen's trio dates – a really wonderful addition to the group. Titles include "Leaves", "Blue Rain", "Punk Monk", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Prism", and "Things You Are". CD

Dalek ICompass Kum'Pas (180 gram pink vinyl pressing – limited, numbered – with bonus flexi disc) ... LP
Medical, 1980. Near Mint- (reissue)... $11.99
Early 80s genius from Dalek I – aka Dalek I Love You – one of the leading lights of the Liverpool scene at the start of the decade – and a duo with almost as much dark electronics as some of their contemporaries in other North England cities! There's a slight tunefulness to most tunes, but the sound is still really stripped down and quite far from commercial – almost a blueprint for 80s pop, turned in as a rough sketch – which makes for plenty of charming elements, and an almost home-grown feel to the overall record – even when things are still pretty darn catchy! Loads of great analogue keyboards – and titles include "The Kiss", "Trapped", "A Suicide", "8 Track", "Destiny", "Freedom Fighters", "Mad", "We're All Actors", and "Missing 15 Minutes". Also comes with a limited bonus flexi-disc – featuring the cuts "Happy" and "This Is My Uniform". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Miles' last great albums – a soundtrack composed in conjunction with Marcus Miller, and recorded with a mix of atmospheric electronics and trumpet solos, coming off in a way that sounds far better than most of his other attempts at this style from the time. Miller plays all the other instruments in the set, apart from some occasional guest work by players that include John Scofield, Earl Klugh, Omar Hakim, and Jason Miles. Titles include "Conchita", "Lament", "Los Feliz", "Lost In Madrid", "Siesta", "Kitt's Kiss", and "Wind". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1955. Very Good ... $13.99
Dreamy vocals from Matt Dennis – a set of Rodgers & Hart numbers, performed in a sweetly swaying style that has plenty of warm touches. Unlike some of Matt's smaller combo records, this set's got larger backings from the orchestra of Harry Geller – using some light strings and woodwinds to give the set a darker sort of finish that works nicely with Matt's fragile vocals. The approach is unique for a male singer at the time – fitting, given that Matt's such a uniquely talented vocalist! Titles include "Have You Met Miss Jones", "This Funny World", "Give Her A Kiss", "Mimi", "Nobody's Heart", and "I Married An Angel". LP, Vinyl record album

Ernie K DoeYou Got To Love Me – The Greatest Hits Collection ... CD
Sansu/Airline, 1960s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Legendary work from the great Ernie K Doe – one of the hippest cats on the 60s soul scene in New Orleans – thanks to some razor sharp production and arrangements from Allen Toussaint! Some of these tracks were huge crossover hits, but others are more obscure – and together, they really helped forge that classic Crescent City sound that went onto influence so many others – a loping groove at the bottom, an easygoing melody on the top, and lots of room for a personality-filled singer like Ernie to really do his thing! Titles include the massively funky "Here Come The Girls", plus "You Got To Love Me", "T'Ain't It The Truth", "A Certain Girl", "Te Ta Te Ta Ta", "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye", "Talkin Bout This Woman", "A Long Way Back Home", "Whoever Is Thrilling You", "Fly Away With Me", "Mother In Law", "A Place Where We Can Be Free", "Hotcha Mama", and "She Gave It All To Me".

Roulette, 1960. Used ... $3.99
A really great album by Billy Eckstine – much more swinging and upbeat than some of his other 50s sessions, and with a strongly pronounced jazz flair overall! The album's supposedly recorded live in Vegas in the wee hours of the morning, and features Billy blowing a bit of trumpet as well as singing – all set to some nicely thumping orchestrations by Bobby Tucker, who really knows how to hit the right groove for this sort of a set. Titles include "Lady Luck", "Have A Song On Me", "Deed I Do", "Without A Song", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Lush Life". CD features a huge amount of previously unissued bonus tracks – titles that include "Prelude To A Kiss", "Fools Rush In", "I Apologize", "Little Mama", "Prisoner Of Love", "Alright Okay You Win", and "In The Still Of The Night".

Duke EllingtonDuke's Big 4 ... LP
Pablo, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Duke's Big 4 here are a quartet of jazz legends – Joe Pass, Ray Brown, and Louie Bellson – all working with Duke himself to serve up unique small combo versions of older Ellington full band classics! The mix of piano, guitar, bass, and drums is a bit unusual for Ellington – and Pass especially has this sharply ringing tone that really brings a different flavor to many of the numbers – a kind of stepping, pulsating quality that's even in contrast to his other work from this period. Duke's piano augments the angularity, and titles include "Love You Madly", "Cottontail", "The Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Everything But You", and "Just Squeeze Me". LP, Vinyl record album

John Ellison (Soul Brother Six)Up From Funk ... CD
Jamie, Late 60s/Early 70s/2013. Used 2CD ... $11.99
A deep deep retrospective on soul singer John Ellison – best known for his work in the group Soul Brother Six – but a heck of a great talent on his own! The set's an unusual one – in that it features a fair bit of old recordings from the vaults of Jamie Records, mixed with new recordings and remixes of older classics – including some of John's best with his famous group! Modern instrumental styles dominate most of the record, but Ellison's vocals are definitely old school – and have this crackling quality that shows his continued commitment to soul. The one thing missing from the package is a full set of dates, which might help us understand the recording history a bit more – but in their place are some surprisingly great notes from Ellison, which certainly makes up for that loss. Titles include "Leave Me Alone", "Sex Is Sex", "Magic Touch", "Wild & Free", "She's Hot She's Some Kind Of Wonderful", "A Kiss In The Wind", "Let Your Hair Hang Down", and "Spend The Rest Of My Life Making Love To You" – plus remakes of "I Need You Yes I Do", "I Don't Want To Cry", and "You Better Check Yourself" – and remixes of "See You Later Baby", "Play With Fire", and "Keep On Making Love To Me".

The title's an apt one – as the record features one side of Duke Ellington compositions, and one side of Charlie Parker tunes – all played by bop legend Al Haig in an intimate solo setting! The obscure date is one of Haig's most personal sessions ever – a record that has even more sensitivity than some of his earlier classics, and which shows a surprisingly deep side of his talents in these later years. There's a subtle sort of charm that marks the Japanese origins of the set – and titles include "Yardbird Suite", "Lover Man", "I Remember You", "Sophisticated Lady", and "Prelude To A Kiss". CD

A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy Eckstine, taken down to more personal and fluid levels by Hartman – and recorded here with great small group baking that includes Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The vibe is very mellow, but never sloppy or sleepy – and titles include "Charade", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Stairway To the Stars", "Kiss & Run", "Our Time", "Don't You Know I Care", "If I'm Lucky", and "Don't Call It Love".

All of side one is a "ballad medley", with a very Creamy sound, and titles that include "But Not For Me", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Whispering", and "Tenderly".
