✨✧ Jimmy McGriffRed Beans (LRC pressing) ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jimmy McGriff picks up a few more keyboards than straight Hammond organ – but that's ok with us, given the great results of the set! The album's got McGriff working on electric piano and clavinet alongside the organ – plus supporting arrangements from Brad Baker, in that fuller, Kudu-styled approach to jazz funk that Groove Merchant used strongly in the mid 70s – a slightly smoother sound than before, but still plenty darn great, and definitely filled with more than enough jazz to keep things real! Pat Rebillot plays some additional keyboards on the album – in that funky style he used well at the time – and there's almost a spacey Fantasy Records quality to some of the best numbers here! Titles include the incredible tripped out break cut "Space Cadet", plus "Love Is My Life", "Sweet Love", "Big Booty Bounce" and "Red Beans". CD

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetLonging For The Continent ... CD
LRC, 1958. Used ... $4.99
A very cool lost slice of work by the Modern Jazz Quartet – a concert recorded in Paris in 1958, and one that features a guest appearance by the Jazz Group De Paris on a few tracks! The core MJQ work here is especially great – served up with a sound that's a bit looser, and almost with more of an edge than some of their studio sides from the time – especially on Milt Jackson's vibes, which ring out with a boldness that we really love. The Jazz Group De Paris, led by Andre Hodier, make an appearance on the tracks "Ambiquite" and "Sketch 3" – adding in extra horn parts that have a sharp-edged and modern sound that's really great. Other straight quartet numbers include "Midsommer", "Django", "Animal Dance", "England's Carol", and "Bag's Groove".. CD

McCoy TynerBlue Bossa ... CD
LRC/Laser Light, 1991. Used ... $4.99
A budget package, but a great little record – a lively session from pianist McCoy Tyner, and one that's served up with a good deal of Latin influence in the rhythms! The sound here is easily on a par with any of Tyner's albums for bigger labels – especially Fantasy in the 70s – and the tracks are long and highly creative, often propelled by a strong sense of rhythm on the bottom, and topped by great solo work from McCoy! The group's a quartet with bass, drums, and added percussion – plus great trumpet work from Claudio Roditi, who isn't on every track, but adds some great moments to the album nonetheless. Titles include a long take on the classic "Blue Bossa", plus "Recife's Blues", "Rotunda", "We'll Be Together", "Traces", and "Natural Bridge". CD

✨✧ Carmen McRaeVelvet Soul (It Takes A Whole Lot Of Human Feeling/Ms Jazz) ... CD
LRC/Denon, 1973/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This double-length set brings together two albums' worth of work that Carmen McRae recorded for the Groove Merchant label in the early 70s! The style here is strongly jazzy, but with a firm dose of soul too – all in a mode that follows nicely from Carmen's late 60s sessions for Atlantic Records, but with a sound that's almost even more focused and in the pocket. The band is largeish, but the rhythms are tight – and even the mellower tunes seem to have a nice sort of lilt at the bottom, one that goes great with the way that Carmen spaces out her vocals on the set. Players include Joe Pass on guitar, Larry Bunker on vibes, Zoot Sims on tenor, and Dick Shreve on piano – and the CD features 19 tracks that include "Hey John", "Inside A Silent Tear", "The Right To Love", "You & I", "Sunshine Of My Life", "The Good Life", "It Takes A Whole Lot Of Human Feeling", "Livin", "Masquerade", "You're Mine You", and "There Will Come A Time".

✨✧ Gerry MulliganMulligan ... CD
LRC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not much of a cover and a title, but a great little live date from Gerry Mulligan – material recorded in France in 1958, and easily on a par with any of his Verve work of the 50s! The tracks have a clean, crisp feel that hardly belies their concert setting – a sharpness that really brings out the best in Gerry's modern baritone lines, and which also showcases the talents of other players on the dates – including Art Farmer on trumpet, Billy Taylor or Claude Williamson on piano, and Dave Bailey on drums. There's a lean feel on most numbers – showcasing the sound that Mulligan was working on in his drum-based sextet and quartet groups – and titles include "North Atlantic Run", "Taurus Moon", "Out Back Of The Barn", "Festive Minor", and "Jeru".

✨✧ Buddy RichRoar Of '74 ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest Buddy Rich albums of the 70s – a mad screaming affair that's overflowing with great tunes! The band on the set is very full – with a heck of a lot of trumpets in the brass section, set next to searing sax work by the great Pat LaBarbera. But even better is the rhythm section – which grooves in a hard electric funk mode, thanks to guitar from Joe Beck, bass from Tony Levin, and some surprisingly smoking drums from Buddy himself! Tracks are all very nicely grooving – and titles include "Kilimanjaro Cookout", "Nuttville", "Senator Sam", "Waltz Of The Mushroom Hunters", and "Big Mac". CD
Also available Roar Of '74 ... LP 14.99
