✨✧ Luther IngramIf Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want To Be Right ... LP
Koko, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful mellow soul from Luther Ingram – and a record that gave the south one of its greatest soul anthems of the 70s! "If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want To Be Right" is one of those genre-defining tunes – a slow-burning track that shows a new level of maturity for southern soul in the 70s – sweetly sad vocals from Luther right out front of the mix, supported with bubbling backings that ooze sex throughout – and a message of pride in the face of love that had an undeniable impact on a whole generation. The rest of the album's equally great – done with slightly fuller backings at times, and a more familiar Memphis soul groove at others – a perfect showcase for the mighty talents of Ingram at this high point of his career. In addition to "If Loving You Is Wrong", other titles include "Dying & Crying", "I Remember", "I Can't Stop", "Love Ain't Gonna Run Me Away", and "I'll Be Your Shelter". LP, Vinyl record album

John CorbettMicrogroove – Forays Into Other Music ... Book
Duke University Press, 2015. New Copy ... $20.99 28.95
A treasure trove of writings from John Corbett – known for the past few decades for his strong contributions to Downbeat and The Wire magazines – as well as his work as a label owner, record producer, liner note author, art critic, radio DJ, and countless other cultural efforts – a nearly non-stop legacy of great work in the musical underground – with an energy level that's reflected strongly in the contents of this book! The volume is over 450 pages long – and brings together interviews, cultural criticism, historical research, essays, and even more philosophical pieces – on subjects who range from Sun Ra, to Steve Lacy, Koko Taylor, Joe Harriott, David Grubbs, Misha Mengelberg, Anthony Braxton, Milford Graves, Peter Brotzmann, Albert Oehlen, Christopher Wool, Ken Vandermark, Fred Anderson, Roscoe Mitchell, Liz Phair, Raymond Scott, and countless others – as well as pieces on the shape of a record, creative listening, cartoon soundtracks, record collecting, and other compelling topics. The pieces are all very well-written – surprisingly deep, yet often free of heady jargon – and the book also includes a great "recommended listening" section, full of suggestions for music to open up your ears. Book includes some black and white photos, and is softcover and full of great bits! Book

Manfredo FestManifestations ... CD
Tabu (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $11.99
An incredible batch of Brazilian fusion – cut by keyboardist Manfredo Fest, and one of the few records he ever waxed in the US during the 70s! The record mixes Fest's soaring Brazilian groove with a tight soulful set of arrangements by Jerry Peters – a bit club-oriented, with a similar sound to some of the other records on the Tabu label at the time, but always sensitive to Fest's playing and writing – especially his Brazilian roots! The record features wonderful vocals by Roberta Davis – a very soulful singer who had a hip wordless style that was similar to Tania Maria's at the time – breezy, scatting, and very nice. Her work really makes the record sparkle, working perfectly with Fest's jazzy electric keyboards in a perfect way! Titles include "Jungle Kitten", "Koko & Leeroe", "Arigo", and "Who Needs It". Sweet reissue – in book-style cover, with new liner notes and an interview with Jerry Peters. CD

Charlie ParkerBird At The Roost – The Savoy Years Vol 1 ... CD
Savoy, 1948. Used ... $9.99
Famous radio recordings of the legendary Charlie Parker – captured at the Royal Roost nightclub in the late 40s – blasting out with incredible power over the airwaves in the New York scene! The presentation of the material here includes bits of announcer patter – mostly from Symphony Sid, who's really one of those guys that you've gotta hear to believe – a surprisingly wonderful combination with Bird's famous alto sax – presented here in a milieu that really lets you hear the raw power of both Parker's music and the way in which he was put forward to audiences at the time! This first volume features work by Miles Davis on trumpet, Tadd Dameron or Al Haig on piano, Curly Russell or Tommy Potter on bass, and Max Roach on drums – and titles include "Salt Peanuts", "Hot House", "Koko", "Out Of Nowhere", and "How High The Moon".

Charlie ParkerCharlie Parker Story (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Savoy, 1945/Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 19.98
Well, it's not the whole Charlie Parker Story – but the album does feature some great material from a very famous session, recorded on 11/26/1945, originally issued on 78s, along with extra tracks, compiled here in one of Savoy's posthumous Bird LPs from the early 60s. The group includes Miles Davis on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Max Roach on drums – and titles include original and alternate takes of "Thriving From A Riff", "Meandering", "Koko", "Now's The Time", and "Billie's Bounce", all in early famous versions!

Max RoachMax Roach 4 Plays Charlie Parker ... CD
Mercury, 1957/1958. Used ... $9.99
A killer batch of hardbop tracks – no-nonsense, straight-ahead, and with all the fire of Roach's work with Clifford Brown! The set was recorded a few years after the untimely death of the Brown/Roach group – and although the album's got "Charlie Parker" in the title, there's a lot more going on here than just a bop revival mode. Players include Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley, and George Coleman – and the album's got that Prestige Records feel from the late 50s, similar to some of Mobley's own work for that label at the time. Titles include "Yardbird Suite", "Confirmation", "Koko", "Billie's Bounce", and "Au Privave". CD also features 4 bonus cuts – "Anthropology", "Tune Up", "This Time The Dream's On Me", and "Raoul".

VariousIn The Mood – Blue Note DJ Mix By DJ Jin ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $14.99
A great approach to the Blue Note catalog – a continuous mix of tunes, but one that really respects the originals! DJ Jin keeps things nice and low-key – serving up a nice blend of 60s hardbop and 70s electric, but never really pushing things to far, and mostly letting the tunes speak for themselves – and considering the strength of the material, that's an easy enough thing to do! Tracks include "Jakey" by John Patton, "Stormy" by Duke Pearson, "Little B's Poem" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Last Tango In Paris" by Marlena Shaw, "You Don't Know How Much I Love You" by Alphonze Mouzon, "Wind Parade" by Donald Byrd, "Congalere" by Horace Parlan, "Round Town" by Elvin Jones, "Koko & Lee Roe" by Gene Harris, "Stuh-born People (interlude)" by Waters, and "Luanne" by Moacir Santos.

✨✧ Mark De Clive-LoweLeaving This Planet EP (limited bonus track edition) ... CD
Mashibeats, 2011. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little EP from Mark De Clive-Lowe – whose way of inflecting timeless dancefloor heat with boundless cosmic atmosphere and a genuine love of global soul jazz has always been big part of his appeal – and he's doing it as deeply as ever here! The Leaving This Planet EP is centered around a sweet cover of the Charles Earland classic – featuring beautiful soul vocals by Sharlene Hector – and Mark also covers Gene Harris's "Koko + Lee Roe" for another gem with a jazzy soul vibe. Other tracks include the Afrobeat and dancefloor hybrids "Dreams" and "Love Broke", both featuring Bembe Segue, plus "What It Is", "Eight", "Freesoul Interlude (Live)", "The Calling" feat Olatunde and "Hope" feat Rahel.

✨✧ Tommy TateHold On – The Jackson Sessions Rare & Unreleased ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of early material from singer Tommy Tate – most of it pulled from demo tapes at the Malaco Studios in Jackson, and some of it previously unreleased! The music here really shows a great evolution in styles – as the earliest tracks show Tate coming off his role as the singer for The Imperial Showband, with a more popular 60s soul style – and the later tracks have Tommy deepening strongly, into the mature southern soul modes of his KoKo Records period. Like so many other releases on the Soulscape and Grapevine labels, this set's way more than a reissue collection – and much more of a discovery in soul – a rare look into the vaults, and a batch of material that really deserved better circulation at the time. The package features some compelling notes on Tate's career, and comes with a whopping 23 tracks that include "The Whole World Is The Same", "Friend Of Mine", "My Wife", "I'd Really Like To Know", "Do You Think There's A Chance", "Cold & Lonely Man", "Solid Straight & Sound", "So Hard To Let A Good Thing Go", "Hold On", "All A Part Of Growing Up", "Get It Over Anyway", and "Peace Is All I Need".

✨✧ Charlie ParkerComplete Savoy Studio Sessions (5LP set) ... LP
Savoy, Late 40s. Used 5LP Box ... Out Of Stock
You'll be hard pressed to find a better collection of Charlie Parker's classic work on vinyl! Bird's great recordings for Savoy have often been poorly packaged over the years, but here you get the whole batch of seminal bop sides by the pioneering artist of the genre! Bird's the leader on most of these sides, but there's a nice set of recordings under Tiny Grimes and a very young Miles Davis too, with a host of players from the dawn of the bebop age, including Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Sadik Hakim, John Lewis, Duke Jordan, Curly Russell, Tommy Potter and Max Roach. An as you'd expect from this kind of set, you get loads of multiple takes so you can hear these pioneering players creating the style that would change the face of jazz forever. Put together in 1978, this set features 66 tracks in all, spread out over 5 LPs, with a nicely annotated book, and includes "I'll Always Love You Just The Same","Romance Without Finance", "Billie's Bounce", "Now's The Time", "Thriving On A Riff", "Koko", "Donna Lee", "Chasin The Bird", "Buzzy", "Milestones", "Half Nelson", "Another Hair Do", "Bird Gets The Worm", "Barbados", "Ah-Leu-Cha", "Constellation", "Parker's Mood", "Perhaps","Marmaduke", "Steeplechase" and more!

Little FeatDown On The Farm ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The last album of the 70s by Little Feat – and it's a strange one! On one hand, Little Feat is revisiting some of their country rock and New Orleans-inspired songs of years past – as well as the self-conciously oddball humor. But they're also working in a tighter, leaner and cleaner studio sound than on the previous albums. Includes "Down On The Farm", "Six Feet Of Snow", "Front Page News", "Wake Up Dreaming", "Be One Now", "Kokomo", "Perfect Imperfection" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Sahib Shihab, & Hal SteinFour Altos ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Four altos in perfect formation – a record that captures a young Phil Woods at the height of his powers, and offers a rare non-baritone set from the great Sahib Shihab! The style here is similar to the Prestige tenor blowing sessions of the time – with core rhythms by a trio that features Mal Waldron on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and altos from the four players in the lead – coming together a bit at the start, then breaking off into some really wonderful solo work that's arguably tighter and better executed than most tenor sessions of this type! Titles include "Pedal Eyes", "Kokochee", "No More Nights", "Kinda Kanonic", and "Staggers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... LP
Academy, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some smoking horn parts that are a lot more American soul and funk than the usual 70s African groove! The whole thing's stunning all the way through – a record that totally informs an understanding of its generation, yet in ways that no other record can touch. Wonderful all the way through, with not a bit of filler – and all cuts are right on the money for any fan of African funk! Titles include "Toffie", "Fa No Dem Ara", "This Hustling World", "Kwaakwaa", and "Akoko Ba". LP, Vinyl record album

The album features the anthemic title cut in Aretha's famous version – plus the sample favorite "Rock Steady", the mellow groover "Day Dreaming", the hit "Brand New Me", and the strangely compelling "First Snow In Kokomo".

✨✧ HiroshimaHiroshima/Odori ... CD
Arista/Vocalion (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two sweet sets from Hiroshima – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled first album from Hiroshima – a group who took the 70s experiments in Japanese fusion right into the American mainstream – with a wonderful blend of jazz and soul, and a production style that was never too polished or commercial! The group's led by reedman Dan Kuramota – who plays both sax and flutes, including a bit of Japanese wooden flute – which gives the record a few slight "Eastern" touches a times, although the overall vibe is strongly in the best soulful fusion of the period! In keeping with that approach, there's a bit of vocals on the record – sung in English with a soulful vibe – on titles that include "Lion Dance", "Da Da", "Taiko Song", "Holidays", "Never Ever", and "Kokoro". Odori is a wicked blend of jazz and soul from Hiroshima – a group who've got the smooth blend of styles we love in some of the import-only fusion dates that were coming from Japan in the late 70s! The group's got a few light touches that emphasize their Pacific roots – including light flute lines and touches of koto and shamisen, but often used in more subtle ways than on earlier Japanese albums that mixed these rootsy elements with jazz – and the overall vibe here is one that's got plenty of appeal to fans of crossover fusion from the time, especially the kind with a strong current of soul! There's a bit of vocals on the record, too – and titles include "Winds Of Change", "Odori", "Echoes", "Cruisin J-Town", "Fortune Teller", and "Shinto". CD

✨✧ OsibisaHeads ... CD
Aim (Australia), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful third album from Osibisa – and a record that really crystallizes the group's sound into a trademark blend of African roots and more progressive-styled jamming! There's a mode here that's perfect for the cross-cultural London of the post-colonial 70s – a style that brings many strands of music into the capital, and mixes them up with some of the headier styles going down at the time. Bits of highlife echo alongside more tribally-based percussion – but most of the instrumentation on the set also has a strong ear for jazzy changes, especially during the flute and keyboards passages that make the record so great. Titles include "Kokorokoo", "Che Che Kule", "Sweet Sounds", "Sweet America", and "Do You Know". CD
