✨✧ Lee DorseyRide Your Pony/The Kitty Cat Song ... 7-inch
Amy, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic work from Lee Dorsey – and still the greatest version of "Ride Your Pony" ever recorded! The track kicks off with some scattershot drums that really go crazy – then hits the groove hard as Lee's crackling vocals sing the lyrics with some really catchy magic! "Kitty Cat" is slower – but a nicely romping New Orleans soul number. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Hiroshi SatoOrient ... CD
Kitty/We Want Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky fusion from late 70s Japan – a set that's got a bit of vocals in the lead on some tracks, but which really opens up with some sweet keyboard-heavy instrumentation! There's almost a sharper, more soul-based groove here than on other Japanese sessions of the time – and the presence of vocals on about half the tracks give things a nice sense of structure and soul before the keyboards come in and really take off – some mighty nice work on a Yamaha CP-30, which creates some especially great sounds on the instrumental tracks! Sato plays keyboards, and so does Hidehiko Koike – and the record features some great percussion from the mysterious "Pecker". Titles include "Jo Do", "Picnic", "Kalimba Night", "Son Go Kuw", "Doncama", and "Sora Tobu Jutan". CD

✨✧ Toshio Matsuura GroupLove Play Dance ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite a compelling little record – a jazz album at heart, but one that also opens up into lots of different sonic territory – as you might expect from a collection of tunes that includes tracks by Rotary Connection, Roni Size, Flying Lotus, Kruder & Dorfmeister, and Bugge Wessletoft! The approach here might be somewhat in the territory of that last artistic reference – as the music is opened up and sometimes a bit diffuse – so that the core elements are melded together in the hands of director Toshio Matsuura, then pushed off in a whole new direction! Things start out very spacey – with keyboards, trumpet, and other elements drifting in moody space – but the album really picks up speed once it gets going, and comes across with some fantastic spiritual groovers – including great covers of "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" and "Kitty Bey" – plus "Brown Paper Bag", "High Noon", "Do The Astral Plane", "At Les", and "Change".

Ramsey LewisLegacy/Ramsey/Live At The Savoy/Chance Encounter ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Four later Columbia albums from Ramsey Lewis – all pretty darn great! Legacy is an overlooked gem from Ramsey's 70s years at Columbia – a record that has him grooving over larger arrangements, sweeping along in a great blend of soul and class that makes for some really great numbers! Side one of the album features Ramsey playing keyboards on the extended "Legacy" suite – a long piece composed and conducted by James Mack, which has Ramsey running through a lot of different moods and modes – some of them nice and funky! Side two features some nice shorter tracks – all electric groovers with plenty of funky keys! Titles include "Moogin On", "Don't Look Back", "Well Well Well", and "All The Way Live". Ramsey is a sweet late 70s groover from Ramsey – not as all-out electric as some of his earlier work for Columbia, but done with some nice arrangements that have a full and soulful feel! There's a bit of Kalimba/Earth Wind & Fire soul to the mix – and some tracks have production by James Mack and soulful backing vocals by Kitty & The Heywoods – both elements of which serve to provide a nice platform for Ramsey to soar over the top on Steinway. A few cuts feature a bit of electric keys, but overall, the style's in that "acoustic solo instrument over electric backings – in the manner that 70s mainstream fusion was using heavily at the time. Titles include "Dancin", "I'll Always Dream About You", "Every Chance I Get", and "I Just Can't Give You Up". Live At The Savoy is, as you might guess, a live set, but one that's got some wonderfully rich grooves – almost one of the first times that Ramsey's excellent studio approach was attempted on record in a concert setting! The backings are quite full, and produced beautifully here by Tom Tom 84 – who really keeps a classy Chicago vibe in place throughout most of the set – one that stretches from Ramsey's late years at Cadet Records, through all the growth and maturation at Columbia during the 70s. The core trio's augmented by fuller horns on most numbers, given a bit of an Earth Wind & Fire/Kalimba Productions groove – and there's a vocal chorus at a few points too. Includes a great version of "Close Your Eyes & Remember" – plus "Sassy Stew", "Callin Fallin", "Baby What You Want Me To Do", "You Never Know", "Lynn", and a "Hits Medley" of Lewis grooves from the 60s. Chance Encounter has a very full, carefully put-together approach – completely arranged and produced by Ramsey Lewis himself, but definitely using lessons learned from some of the other top-shelf talents who guided him during his years at Columbia Records! There's a pretty careful balance of material here – from spare acoustic piano numbers, to sweeter electric grooves, to one vocal track that's trying a bit more for a soul crossover. Ramsey mostly plays Steinway acoustic and Fender Rhodes – and tracks include "What's Going On", "Chance Encounter", "Intimacy", "A Special Place", "I Can't Wait", "Paradise", and "Just A Little Ditty".

✨✧ Little MiltonFriend Of Mine ... LP
Glades, 1976. Good+ ... $9.99
Tight and soulful blues from Little Milton – just the sort of record that helped him cross over to bigger audiences back in the day, and a set that still sounds plenty great all these many years later! The set was done in Chicago – arranged by James Mack, with backing vocals from Kitty & The Haywoods – and the sound is a sweet west side mix of rootsy and soulful elements – a blend that shows the same growing sophistication of the Malaco scene at the time, at a level that moves nicely away from college circuit blues cliches of the 70s. Milton's vocals are wonderful – raspy and appealing with a Tyrone Davis-like charm – and titles include "Friend Of Mine", "Don't Turn Away", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "It's All Bad News", "Sundown", "Bring It On Back", and "Baby It Ain't No Way".

Night Blooming JazzmenNight Blooming Jazzmen ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the funkiest records ever cut under the direction of Leonard Feather – a sweetly grooving little set that's filled with tight changes and lots of soulful riffing! Feather wrote and arranged the date, but the real strength here is the players – Mainstream Records hipsters who include Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Charles Kynard on organ, Paul Humphrey on drums, Freddy Robinson on guitar, and Ernie Watts on sax and flute – plus a bit of vocal work from Kitty Doswell, although the album's predominantly a vocal one. There's almost a soundtrack jazz feel to some of the best cuts here – tunes that are funky, but not in an over-the-top sort of way – with subtleties and sophistication that really keep the album fresh. The set kicks off with "Nam M'Yoho Ren'ge Yo", which has a good groove, and a nice tight break at the beginning – and other tracks include "The Night Blooming Jazmen", "Donte's Inferno", and "Funkville USA".

PrincePurple Rain (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner, 1984. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly catchy tunes that are still delivered with a nice funky undercurrent. The whole Prince family is at the top of their game at this point – and titles include "Darling Nikki", "Let's Go Crazy", "I Would Die 4 U", "When Doves Cry", "Baby I'm A Star", and "Purple Rain". This fantastic 2CD version features a completely new 2015 Paisley Park remaster of the album, done by Prince – plus a full CD that features unreleased songs and tracks from the vaults – with titles that include "Katrina's Paper Dolls", "We Can F**k", "Father's Song", "Possessed", "Computer Blue (hallway speech version)", "Love & Sex", "The Dance Electric", "Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden", "Wonderful Ass", "Velvet Kitty Cat", and "Electric Intercourse (studio version)".

The overall groove is very melodic, but it's still got plenty of kick underneath!

✨✧ Clive ZandaClive Zanda Is Here With Dat Kinda Ting (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Gayap/Cree (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.98
A totally great little record that refers to itself as "calypsojazz innovations" – but which is even better than that label might make you think! The groove here is hardly calypso – as it's funkier, chunkier, and a much more heavy take on inspirations from the islands than we've ever heard – driven on by a killer drummer and bassist, and topped with these killer solos from pianist Clive Zanda – an artist we've never heard before, but who leaves us breathless with this set! The whole thing's maybe more soul jazz overall, but with a touch of lyricism too – a bit like the best work by Michel Sardaby, but funkier too – and titles include "Chip Down", "Mr Walker", "Kitty Kang", "Ogun", "Fancy Sailor", "Major To Minor", and "Dat Kinda Ting".

VariousRu-Jac Records Story Vol 3 – 1966/1967 – Finally Together ... CD
Ru-Jac/Omnivore, Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
The Ru-Jac label is really on fire here – taking off with some sweet female soul singers, as you might guess from the image on the cover – in modes that mix their deep soul core with some nice jazzy touches too! Two big artists grab the first half of the collection here – Kitty Lane, who might have been right at home working for Stax Records – and Rita Doryse, a jazzier singer who recalls early Marlena Shaw material at Chess! Other artists here continue some of the male deep soul styles that have made Ru-Jac a real favorite for collectors of rare singles – and as with other volumes in this series, the package also includes a number of tracks that were never issued at the time. Titles include "When I'm Alone", "Wait Til Then", "Born To Be Loved", and "Please Let Me Love You" by Rita Doryse; "It's Love I Need", "Sweetheart", and "The Feeling Is Gone" by Kitty Lane; "I Would Cry" and "I Tell You" by Gene & Eddie, "Do The Roller" and "Working Hard" by Leon Gibson, "I Can't Stay Away" and "Who Can It Be" by The Caressors; "She's My Girl (demo)" and "My Love (demo)" by Winfield Parker, and "Sweet Little Girl" and "Finally Together" – both unreleased tracks by an unknown artist!

✨✧ Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... LP
Cadet, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in between every song, done in a sparer folksy style that recalls Terry's roots in the Old Town scene in Chicago. At the time, Terry was making the transition from folk artist to soul singer – and he'd been picked up by Jerry Butler and The Dells as a promising young songwriter, one of the best talents of the second generation of Chicago soul stars. The record's a stripped-down affair that features a small group with Charles Stepney on harpsichord and organ, Callier on guitar, and backing vocals by Minnie Riperton, Shirley Wahls, and Kitty Haywood. The album kicks off with Terry's great little pop ditty "Ordinary Joe" – probably the catchiest song he ever wrote – then rolls into more somber titles like "Occasional Rain", "Do You Finally Need A Friend", "Golden Circle", and "Blues For Marcus". A totally unique album – and a prime example of the genius that was coming out of Chicago at the time! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big BlackSongs About F*cking ... LP
Touch & Go, 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
Perhaps the definitive Big Black LP – the searing, shrapnel inflected, jackhammer noise rock masterpiece from Steve Albini, Santiago Durango, Dave Riley and Roland – a drum machine that just so happens to be one of the most influential postpunk drummers of the 1980s! Big Black's most notorious album, it's unrelentingly, hypnotically fierce and amazing to this day. So many strains of indie rock, and even industrial rock could never have happened – for better AND for worse – without this album and the equally great Atomizer. Titles include "The Power Of Independent Trucking", "Bad Penny", their notorious cover of Kraftwerk's "The Model", "Kitty Empire", "Fish Fry", "Pavement Saw" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Duke EllingtonConcert In The Virgin Islands ... LP
Reprise, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the great entries in Duke Ellington's "exotic" albums of the 60s – records that aren't exactly exotica by any stretch of the imagination, but which have musical themes that were inspired by the international travels of the Ellington band at the time! In this case, the locale is the Virgin Islands – where Ellington performed in 1965, and returned home to record this set as a memory of tunes played by the band in St Croix and St Thomas. The core of the set is the initial Virgin Islands suite – made up of four new tunes that include "Island Virgin", "Virgin Jungle", "Fiddler On The Diddle", and "Jungle Kitty" – all nicely rhythmic numbers that explore some fresh themes with especially nice horn solos from the members of the group. Other tracks are older numbers performed on the tour, given a bit of a new twist here – on titles that include "Fade Up", "Mysterious Chick", "The Opener", and "Big Fat Alice's Blues".

✨✧ Fabio FrizziUn Gatto Nel Cervello ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1990. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a pretty creepy looking kitty on the cover, and the soundtrack's got an equally creepy sound to match – very much in the best 80s horror mode of the maestro Fabio Frizzi! The soundtrack's definitely got the keyboards and fuzzy compressed guitar lines you'd expect – but there's also some nicely expanded modes, too – even with a few jazzy inflections from time to time, but scored in the period instrumental style. The main theme is especially great – with this nice spacious, almost funky kind of vibe – almost more a 70s cop/crime suspense groove than you'd guess from the date of the film. This CD version is the best that's ever been issued – and features a whopping 27 tracks in all, including some unreleased titles. CD

Over the years, how many films have been made about this guy anyway? We've never seen the movie, but the record's a gem – some very edgy scoring by Pete Rugolo, the ex-Kenton arranger who went on to do some great crime jazz work for a number of labels. This work isn't exactly in that style, but does have some traces of the genre – plus some very weird instrumental approaches that have a nice horror-ish tone! Liner notes, oddly, are by Gypsy Rose Lee – and titles include "Kitty", "Killed In The Elevator", "Love Theme", "Ripper Kills Gateman", "The Operating Room", and "Chase The Hunchback".

Sound American/Pleasure Of The Text, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the kind of New American Songbook you'd hear from a mainstream jazz artist – or a rock singer like Rod Stewart – and instead a really beautiful project that seeks to completely reinvent familiar pop themes as freewheeling vehicles for improvisation! The trio here is more than up to the task – as they bristle with fresh imagination at every twist and turn – a magnificent combination of the cornet of Ron Miles, guitar of Mary Halvorson, and drums of Greg Saunier – who also vocalizes just a bit. You might well recognize the titles of a few of the tunes here, but you'll hardly recognize the interpretations – as the whole thing bursts out with a freshness that's undeniable – on tracks that include "I Woke Up In Love This Morning", "Jonathan", "Day Dream", "Everything Means Nothing To Me/Last Call", "Snowy Morning Blues", "Luke & Leia", and "Little Pad/Caught In The Game/Kitty Kat".
