✨✧ Koko TaylorKoko Taylor ... LP
Chess, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Probably THE album you truly need to own from Koko Taylor – and a completely great one, recorded way before she'd become a cliched fixture paying the bills on the frat boy tourist blues scene! The tracks here were recorded over a few years in mid-to-late 60s Chicago – mostly with production from Willie Dixon, who also co-wrote most of the tunes on the set! The groove is nice and gritty – electric Chess Chicago blues at it's finest, but also with a good sense of soul in the mix – and tracks include the fiery hit "Wang Dang Doodle", plus "Fire", "29 Ways", "I Don't Care Who Knows", "Nitty Gritty", and "Love You Like A Woman". Amazing stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Luther IngramIf Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want To Be Right ... LP
Koko, 1972. Very Good ... $5.99
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

Gene HarrisNexus ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good- ... $4.99
A great little solo set from Gene Harris – and a perfect example of that magical time after he'd left the Three Sounds, but hadn't yet hit the more standard styles of later years – a period when Harris was really experimenting with a wide range of keyboards and sounds! The set has arranger Jerry Peters weighing in – bringing some of his own quirky touches into play with Gene's wonderful work on keyboards – which includes plenty of Fender Rhodes and moog, as well as other keys of the time too. Funky titles include "Koko & Lee Rose", "Funky Business", "Rushin Roulette", "HRD (Boogie)", and "Gettin Down Country" – and the set's got a great mellow moody soul track called "Prayer 76", with a bit of a Roy Ayers feel.

Azar LawrenceElementals ... CD
High Note, 2018. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Saxophonist Azar Lawrence has been having a hell of a renaissance in recent years – and a record like this only helps move that process forward – providing a mighty large feather in Azar's ever-growing cap! The album's a great one from start to finish – a evolution of the spiritual vibe that Lawrence had in the 70s, with maybe some slight Latin currents in the rhythms – all rolling along with this vibe that's soaring and freewheeling, but never too far outside – just boldly stepping into the cosmos, amidst some great new tunes by Lawrence himself, and a few more by pianist Benito Gonzales – whose work here is a key part of the album's sound! The group also features Jeff Littleton on bass, Munyungo Jackson on percussion, and Marvin Smitty Smith on some tremendous drums – on titles that include "African Chant", "La Bossa", "Eye Of The Needle", "Brazilian Girls", "Koko", "Sing To The World", and "Solar Winds".

VariousRock On ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A deep collection of wild tunes that cross genres like crazy – a tribute to the wide variety stocked at London's legendary Rock On record shop – which carried rebellious records off all stripes! The set has fiery 50s rockabilly, pulp pop, fuzzy psychedelic grooves, jumpin' blues, outlaw country and more – great stuff all around and a joy for ears that are open to a rebellious tune, style divisions be damned! The booklet is packed with notes and photos – with 28 tracks in all! "Chicken Shack Boogie" by Amos Milburn, "Red Hot" by Billy Lee Riley, "Shake Your Hips" by Slim Harpo, "Bottle To The Baby" by Charlie Feathers, "Two Headed Dog" by Roky Erikson, "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" by Waylon Jennings, "So Sharp" by Dyke & The Blazers, "It's Better To Have (And Don't Need)" by Don Covay, "Slow Death" by Flamin Groovies, "What Came First – The Egg Or The Hen?" by Koko Taylor "Give Him A Great Big Kiss" by The Shangri-Las and lots more!

✨✧ Max RoachMax Roach 4 Plays Charlie Parker ... CD
Mercury, 1957/1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

✨✧ Anthony BraxtonSextet (Parker) 1993 (11CD set) ... CD
Braxton House, 1993. New Copy 11CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic reworking of classic modes – 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". 11CD set brings together all the music from this wonderful project – 9 more discs than were ever released in the past!

✨✧ VariousAnn Arbor Blues & Jazz Festival 1972 ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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.

Mndsgn & AhwleeRap X-Mas Vacation (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Rap Vacation, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A Rap X-Mas Vacation from Mndsgn & Ahwlee – one side of beats & yuletide theme sample genius from Mndsgn and an equally solid side by Ahwlee! This is fresh, funky and fun as can be – on point with some recognizable and obscure samples that stick nicely with the X-Mas theme (and some X-rated...maybe don't spin this one for the little kids and the grandparents), and really adding up to one of the freshest holiday-themed hip hop releases in years! Includes "Giveways", "The Weather", "Snowed In", "Doodoogifts", "Skates", "That Time", "Bells B Silver", "Northpolemetro" and more. Ahwlee side includes "Haloh", "Boxt Up", "Mistlestep", "Wht To Do", "Hotkoko","Keepit", "Savesumcheer" and more – plus 3 vinyl bonus tracks – "KRIMB", "N64" and "Nog'd.Out". LP, Vinyl record album

John RenbournFaro Annie ... CD
Reprise/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
An album of understated brilliance from the great John Renbourn – a set that mostly just features John on vocals and guitar, working through tunes of a traditional nature – yet delivering a record that's full of tremendously powerful moments! There's none of the hoke here that you might have gotten from a folk revival record from a decade before – and instead, Renbourn's bringing all the amazing new discoveries he and his contemporaries have unlocked in the acoustic guitar, as a way of opening up some of the darker corners and spookier elements of the tunes – none of which should be that strong on their own, but which work together here beautifully. Renbourn gets a bit of help from time to time – vocals from Dorris Henderson, harmonica from Pete Dyer, and drums from Terry Cox – but most of the set is just vocals and guitar, even more timeless in 1971 than it might have been before John plays a bit of sitar and harmonica, too – and titles include "Kokomo Blues", "Little Sadie", "Shake Shake Mama", 'The Cuckoo","Willy O Winsbury", "Faro Annie", and "Come On In My Kitchen".

VariousAntilles Cheries – Compa/Cadence – Foundation Dance Music From The Caribbean ... CD
Fanon (France), 1970s. New Copy ... $18.99
The French Antilles have been a huge source of influence on the global scene of the past few decades – especially during the big years of the zouk explosion, which opened up the island grooves to a huge global audience! But there's a much richer history of Antilles music that doesn't always get exposure – and part of that is presented here, in a beautiful batch of 70s material that paves the way towards 80s world music trends – but with earthier examples from the styles of compas and cadence! The rhythms are complex, but immediately compelling too – often upbeat and infectious, and in some spots touched by a bit of a 70s funk influence too – and most numbers have horn parts that are as upbeat and powerful as some of the best salsa work of the time, but turned towards slightly different ends. The grooves have so many different strands of sounds working together at once, the result is completely mindblowing – and the well-chosen tracks on the set are supported with notes in French and English that really illuminate this overlooked history. Titles include "La Vie Musique" by Black Affairs, "Si Bon Di Bon" by Simon Jurad, "Cail La Mande Rouse" by Toto Necessite, "Kokoye" by Combo Creole, "Money First" by Selecta Martinique, "Pale Creole" by Rodrigue Millien & Blagueur, "Coeur A Moin" by Belles Combo, and "Marchande" by Gervais Nerva.

Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
London is exploding again with fantastic music – and this time around, it's the city's jazz underground that comes forward to remind us what a unique musical crossroads the city can be! The work here represents an incredible new scene that's pushing boundaries all over again – not the avant jazz of London improvisers, nor the electric sounds of the broken beat world, or retro funk of another scene – but fantastic acoustic jazz that at one level brings back deeper spiritual sounds from generations back, but at another flings forward its sounds with inspiration that will be setting the standard for years to come. We've only had a few of these artists on record before, and together they work beautifully as a strong new proclamation of talent – on titles that include "Once" by Nubya Garcia, "Inside The Acorn" by Maisha, "Pure Shade" by Ezra Collective, "The Balance" by Moses Boyd, "Brockley" by Theon Cross, "Walls" by Triforce, "Black Skin Black Masks" by Shabaka Hutchings, "Go See" by Joe Armon Jones, and "Abusey Junction" by Kokoroko.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ HiroshimaHiroshima ... LP
Arista, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic 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".
