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

Yusef LateefInto Something ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $39.99
A real classic from Yusef Lateef – and like the rest of his best albums from the time, an incredible blend of hardbop, soul jazz, and some really wonderful exotic touches! Lateef plays a bit of oboe on the album – sounding really weird and snakey over laidback orientalist rhythms on the album's most out there tracks. On other tunes he picks up tenor, grooving more straight ahead, and also hits a bit of flute for the more gentle moments. The group's a quartet – with Barry Harris on piano, Herman Wright on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "P. Bouk", "Koko's Tune", "Water Pistol", and "Rasheed". LP, Vinyl record album
(Purple label New Jazz pressing, with deep groove & Van Gelder stamp. Cover has masking tape on the top seam and spine, some light stains, and a bit of pen on back.)

✨✧ Charlie ParkerCharlie Parker Story (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Savoy, 1945/Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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!

Tommy TateHold On – The Jackson Sessions Rare & Unreleased ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
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".

Various80s Soul Classics Vol 6 – Sweet Soul Vibes & Funky Club Tunes ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99
A diverse batch of 80s soul groovers – with great tunes by superstars and lesser-remembered soul heroes and heroines alike! It's jam-packed 2CD set of tunes, many of which were no doubt popular in their heyday, but they're anything but ubiquitous these days. It's got a nice mix of styles, too, with some 70s soul jazz influenced numbers – some of them by genuine 70s soul jazz figures – plus some leaner synth funk flavored tunes, bouncing clubby tunes, breezy duets and more. 24 tracks on 2CDs: "Whatcha' Gonna Do" by Average White Band, "Lies" by Shock, "Emotions' by Starpoint, "Feelin' Free" by Jermaine Jackson, "Starstruck" by Patti Austin, "Chillin' Out"by Curtis Hairston, "Love In Your Eyes" by Vaneese Thomas, "I'm In Love With You" by Koko-Pop, "I'm Freaky" by O'Bryan, "Palm Of Your Hand" by Peabo Bryson & D'Atra Hicks and more.

VariousAnn Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1972 ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 18.98
A classic set from this legendary Detroit festival – a mighty assemblage of roots and jazz performers that was put together by John Sinclair! The event was legendary at the time – and has lived on strongly via this great recording by Atlantic – one that really gets at the special fire of all the performers, and their very enthusiastic welcome by the audience too! Most of the material here is blues – but the set features a key track from Sun Ra & His Solar Myth Arkestra – a performance of "Live Is Splendid" from the Space Is The Place Suite. Other tracks include "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Dr John, "Road Runner" by Jr Walker, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "Gambler's Blues" by Otis Rush, "Ain't That Loving You" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Honey Bee" by Muddy Waters, "Form Kinetic" by CJQ, "Dust My Broom" by Johnny Shines, and "Goin Down" by Freddie King.

VariousLa Noire Vol 1 – Have Mercy Uncle Sam ... LP
Doghouse & Bone (France), 1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
A rollicking set of classic and should-be classic tunes on Chess, King, Fame, Jubilee and other iconic labels – plus some comparably rare gems – all in touch with the bluesy roots, and laying the groundwork for the soul scenes to come! This first La Noire compilation has one killer tune after another, many from that pivotal early 60s period when the influences of the grander rhtyhm & blues orchestras of the preceding decade were finding their way into a stripped down to the bare essentials sound – with crack rhythm sections, tight horns, and masterful vocals. Includes tracks by solo legends like Bobby Bland and Koko Taylor, the tight group sounds of The Spellbinders, The X-Cellents, and much more. Great stuff! Includes "Just You And I" by Guitar Red, "You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover" by Dell Mack, "Don't Cry No More" by Bobby Bland, "Can't Stay Away From You" by Tarheel Slim and Little Ann, "Hey, Little Willie" by The X-Cellents, "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor, "Uncle Bud" by Billy Bland, "Ride On Red, Ride On" by Louisiana Red and more.

✨✧ Anthony BraxtonAnthony Braxton's Charlie Parker Project 1993 ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 1993. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not necessarily the bebop fest that you might expect from the title, but a wonderful extrapolation of earlier jazz ideas shaped by the musical vision of Athony Braxton! The tunes here are all originals by Charlie Parker – plus a few more by Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis – all older bop standards that are used as vehicles for freer expression by a group that includes Braxton on reeds, Ari Brown on tenor and soprano saxes, Paul Smoker on trumpet, Misha Mengelberg on piano, Joe Fonda on bass, and either Han Bennink or Pheeroan AkLaff on drums. Some of the numbers are taken in a relatively classic bebop mode, but others move into territory that's much freer and more concerned with sound and texture – as you might hear in some of Braxton's own compositions. The mix of modes is really wonderful – swinging between poles of jazz in a way that reminds us of some of Braxton's best 70s recordings. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Dewey Square", "Klactoveesedstene", "An Oscar For Treadwell", "Bebop", "Bongo Bop", "Yardbird Suite", and "Koko". CD

✨✧ VariousFree Soul – The Treasures Of Tabu ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A deeper set of grooves than usual from Tabu Records – not just the label's hits or disco singles, but a well-chosen batch of tracks that fits nicely with the other collections in the Free Soul series! Most numbers here are mellow or midtempo – and they step around with a mix of modern soul and 80s groove styles, often with some really sweet touches on the instrumentation that come as a nice surprise. Tabu was definitely one of the classiest soul labels of its generation, and that really comes through here – in a sweet batch of 18 tracks that includes "Just Be Good To Me" by SOS Band, "Changin" by Sharon Ridley, "Destiny" by Woods Empire, "Waiting For Someone" by Brainstorm, "Koko & Leeroe" by Manfredo Fest, "Look At Us Now" by Alexander O'Neal, "For Lovers Only" by General Caine, "Brand New Day" by Brainstorm, "Tell Me If You Still Care" by SOS Band, "Saturday Love" by Cherrelle, and "Anything For You" by Anacostia.

Eugen CiceroRokoko-Jazz ... LP
MPS, 1965. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of the greatest jazz-meets-classical albums from pianist Eugen Cicero – thanks to a good amount of Rokoko in the grooves! The more flowery, flourishing style of the Rokoko era proves to be a perfect foil for Cicero's incredible approach to the keys – one that lets him bring even more complicated touches to the piano, while still working with tightly jazzy rhythms from the team of Peter Witte on bass and Charlie Antolini on drums! Witte and Antolini are great throughout – keeping things tight and focused, and making the record way more than a virtuostic exploration of classical themes. As much a jazz record as the best Swingle Singers sides from the 60s – with titles that include a great original called "Bach's Softly Sunrise", plus Bach's "Solfeggio C Moll", Couperin's "L'Adoslecente", and Scarlatti's "Sonate C-Dur".

✨✧ Aretha FranklinYoung, Gifted & Black ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $9.99
A beautiful album that perfectly mixes both sides of Aretha – the earlier hard-hitting soulster, and the developing vocalist with a rich talent for more sophisticated material. 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".

KokomoRise & Shine! ... LP
CBS, 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Second LP from this slick British funk outfit, with a soulful jazzy edge like many of the bigger acts of their day. The record has a surprisingly tight, compressed groove, considering the band is a bunch of long haried Brits in dirty t-shirts (at least from what we can tell), but it's the mellower numbers rather than the funky ones that stand out to us, like "Angel Love", "Happy Birthday" and "Little Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp and some wear.)

Phil Woods, Gene Quill, Sahib Shihab, & Hal SteinFour Altos (2nd cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

VariousWorld Ends – Afro Rock & Psychedelia In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 19.98
One of the coolest collections of rare psychedelia we've heard in a while from anywhere in the world – this one focusing on Afro Rock & psych from 70s Nigeria – among the greatest releases to date on the Soundway label, which only does great work! The music has the touchstone elements of raw garage funk & rock sounds from around the globe at the time – fuzzed out guitars and organs, searing solos, hard grooving rhythms and passionate vocals. But the guitars and rhythms are uniquely African, too, with highlife and Afrobeat gestures along with the global psychedelic soul sounds. 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Nwantini/Die Die" by The Ify Jerry Krusade, "Rough Rider" by The Hygrades, "Yem Efe" by Tony Grey Super 7, "Ikoko" yb Eppi Fanio, "All Night Long" by Bongos Ikwue, "Babalawo" by The Thermometers, "Eti Ufok" by The Ceejebs, "Active Action" by The Action 13, "Onye Ije" by The Strangers, "Bullwalk" by The Comrades, "Egwu Aja" by Ofo The Black Company and more. Comes with a great booklet of notes and the always top shelf Soundway treatment in general. Perfection! CD

✨✧ Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... LP
Academy, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ KokomoKokomo (1975) ... LP
CBS, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blue-eyed funk from Kokomo – and a record that's got a surprisingly funky feel, despite it's slightly trippy cover! The group mix warm vocals with tighter grooves on the bottom – almost an Average White Band sort of feel at times, but maybe a bit more crossover on the sweeter tracks – but in a nice way! Production is relatively laidback, and instrumentation includes sweet flute from Mel Collins, plus a bit of Arp – on tracks that include an extended cover of Bobby Womack's "I Can Understand It", plus "Angel", "Kitty Sittin Pretty", "Forever", and "I'm Sorry Babe".

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
