Les BaxterHell's Belles (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a razor sharp edge to the groove! A few tracks have vocals, but it's the funk rock instrumentals that drive this one into pulp soundtrack classic status. Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove", "Chain Fight", "Dan's Theme", "Scoobee Doo" and the killer "Wheels (Main Title Theme)". This great limited edition CD version has a 4 bonus tracks made up of the full version of the end title song, medleys of shorter cues from the film, instrumental bits and more. "Travelin' Man", "Take It From Me (Source)/Gila Monster/Cathy Left Behind /Mongoose Gets Beans", "Gang Rides Through The Hills/Tosses Bike Over Bank/Snake Or Rope" and more. CD

✨✧ Jack MarshallThunder Road – The Film Music Of Jack Marshall ... CD
La La Land, 1958/1959. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of rare soundtrack work by Jack Marshall – an artist you might know more for his instrumental albums on Capitol Records! The biggest part of the set features Jack's great score for Thunder Road – that excellent late 50s film that starred Robert Mitchum as a hot rodding bootlegger in the hills of Kentucky – a soundtrack that's probably most famous for the "Ballad Of Thunder Road", which had quite a life of its own! Most of the music here is instrumental, though – apart from that one great track – and is served up by Marshall in a mix of guitar and harmonica parts to set the hillbilly scene, plus fuller orchestrations at more dramatic or sensitive moments. CD features 24 tracks from the Thunder Road score – including "Radio Music", "Guitar Music", "Moonshine Run/Gangster Chase", "Trapped", "The Road Block", "Cabin", and "Lucky Chase/The Last Chase". Next is the score for Take A Giant Step – a film in which a young Johnny Nash must come to terms with prejudice and hatred in his suburban environment – given a much more sensitive musical treatment by Marshall. The few tracks in the score almost have a 50s TV playhouse vibe – gently emotive strings at some points, and some stock "rock" moments at others. Last up is music from The Rabbit Trap – sounds that are maybe in the more playful mode you'd know from Marshall's albums on Capitol – although not without some more sensitive elements too. CD features a whopping 37 tracks, 78 minutes of music, and lots of notes too! CD

✨✧ Nelson RiddleBatman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/La La Land, 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Nelson Riddle's finest moments of the 60s – the wonderful original soundtrack for the campy full length Batman film! The tunes have a totally excellent blend of the dramatic and the jazzy – often using full orchestrations, but in a tight way that goes for rhythmic passages and tight little themes – all hitting hard with a style that goes "Zap!" "Pow!" "Slam!" The approach is a fair bit like the crime jazz of the Henry Mancini generation, but has a bit more swing and pop – as you'd guess from the comic book source material. The CD features 29 original instrumental tracks all from the film (6 more than the previous CD reissue) – plus 3 bonus tracks that includes a few other little bits not by Riddle – all packaged with a 20 page booklet that's got lots of vivid images from the movie! 31 tracks in all – with titles that include "Flee For Your Life", "Dehydrated", "Batmobile To Airport", "Good Job", "Roger Wilco", "The Grotto", "Small Craft", "Batman Theme", and "Fine Finkish Friends".

✨✧ Nimbus CollectiveLive In Lotus Land ... CD
Nimbus, 1987. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A lost session of spiritual jazz – recorded in LA in the latter half of the 80s, but with a soaring, righteous vibe that's right up there with the 70s scene! The group here is incredible – an all-star array of the best talents working for Nimbus Records – Nate Morgan on piano, Rickey Kelly on vibes, Jesse Sharps on reeds, Danny Cortez on trumpet, Joel Ector on bass, and Derek Roberts on drums – all moving with the cohesiveness of a well-honed small combo, in territory that's right in line with some of Morgan's most glorious recordings for the label! The use of Kelly on vibes is especially nice – as he's a player we've always loved, but hardly ever get to hear in a setting this ambitious – and his presence on the record makes the whole thing sound even more magical and majestic. Tracks are quite long, with a soaring, searching feel – driven on strongly by Morgan's piano, and topped by some great explorations by Sharps. Titles include "Retribution Reparation", "Big Spliff", "A Bientot", "The Goat & The Ram Jam", "Mfaconi", "Mrafu", "Distant Vibes", and "Journey Into Nigritia". CD

Al CohnMr Music ... LP
RCA, 1954. Very Good ... $6.99
A tight little record – with a strong focus on Al Cohn's solo work! Al's the lead soloist in a number of largish groups that are often tightly arranged, but which let the leader break out nicely – cutting with an edge on his tenor that's sometimes even sharper than usual. Cohn handled most of the arrangements – but a few are by Johnny Carisi, Ralph Burns, or Manny Albam –a nd players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Billy Byaers and Frank Rehak on trombone, Gene Quill on alto, and Jimmy Raney on guitar. Proceedings are tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "Cabin In The Sky", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "This Reminds Me Of You", "Move", "Cohn My Way", "La Ronde", and "Never Never Land".

✨✧ Curtis CounceYou Get More Bounce With Curtis Counce ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used ... $19.99
An album with a sexy cover, but a set that's one of the more soulful from the LA scene of the 50s – thanks to a tight, sharp group working under the leadership of bassist Curtis Counce! Counce didn't cut many albums as a leader, but all of them are pretty darn great – and done with a bit more edge than the cool jazz of the LA scene – a bit more open, with a strong focus on the solos on some of the album's longer tracks too! Solos include great work on tenor by Harold Land – who's really coming into his own here – plus Jack Sheldon on piano, and the tremendous Curtis Counce on piano – a player who would pass away not long after this set. Frank Butler completes the group on drums – and titles include "Complete", "Big Foot", "Counceltation", and "Mean To Me". CD

Jimmy SmithIt's Necessary ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited! Jimmy's working here with an all-star group that almost recalls his Blue Note jam session work – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Teddy Edwards and Harold Land on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar – all coming together in gently-grooving numbers that have a classic soul jazz feel. Titles include "It's Necessary", "For Your Love", "Side Mouthin", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "I've Got Love On My Mind", and "Say It Again, Jim". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gerald WilsonPortraits ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
An excellent album from Gerald Wilson – one that features some of his most inventive writing and arranging to date! The album's a perfect balance between the two sides of LA jazz in the 60s – the soul jazz groove, and the growing modern scene – which often didn't get the larger exposure it needed, but would sometimes peek forth under the guidance of mainstream figures like Wilson. The set features very strong solo work by hip LA players like Jimmy Woods on alto, Jack Wilson on piano, Harold Land on tenor, and Joe Pass on guitar – and the tracks are all tributes to some of Wilson's biggest influences – so "Eric" is dedicated to Eric Dolphy, "Ravi" to Ravi Shankar, "Paco" to the great Spanish matador, and so on. The whole thing's quite hip, and another example of how Wilson could perfectly balance the modernist impulses of the LA underground with a tight sense of arrangement and presentation that helped him reach a very wide audience at the time.

Just about every single player in the group is a master talent – and soloists include Carmell Jones, Harold Land, Teddy Edwards, Walter Benton, Joe Maini, and Groove Holmes, whose organ lines get top billing with the band – and soar out over the top majestically!

Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm BanBest Of Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band ... CD
Warner/Varese, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Heavy funk from one of the coolest, grooviest bands on the LA scene at the end of the 60s – a freewheeling ensemble who were almost to that city what Sly & The Family Stone were to San Francisco! Yet unlike Sly Stone, Charles Wright was never as concerned with crossing over to the mainstream – and throughout the early run of his group, documented here, he really kept things sharp and gritty – music that was as important an influence on funky sounds to come as the 60s work of the James Brown Band, but maybe even more open and freewheeling overall. This collection brings together some key hits and other great nuggets too – and titles include "Do Your Thing", "Comment", "Love Land", "Express Yourself", "I Wake Up Crying", "Till You Get Enough", "Must Be Your Thing", "Your Love Meands Everything To Me", "I Got Love", "Tell Me What You Want Me To Do", "Spreadin Honey", "Nobody", and "Keep Saying" – plus bonus new recordings of "Happiness" and "Remember That Thing".

VariousDeutsche Elektronische Musik – Experimental German Rock & Electronic Music 1972 to 1983 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
A much-needed look at the incredible German music scene of the 70s – a sprawling landscape of prog, fusion, electronics, and more – all put together beautifully here with the usual completeness we've come to expect from Soul Jazz! Many of the names are familiar – the sorts you've either passed by in the record racks, or seen priced up high in the collectible imports up on display – and if you've never dipped into these grooves, this set is a perfect way to start – as the folks at Soul Jazz have really tuned their ears well, to pick out key tracks that really resonate strongly with music of the 21st Century – a good deal of which was influenced by these groundbreaking acts. Some cuts are long, but never too overindulgent – and the instrumentation and production techniques are really mindblowing – extremely creative, and often presented here in their most open, honest form. As usual with Soul Jazz, the notes are wonderful – and titles include "Devotion" by Between, "Dino" by Harmonia, "This Morning" by Gila, "Rambo Zambo" by Kollektiv, "La Chasse Aux Microbes" by Michael Bundt, "It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl" by Faust, "Hallo Gallo" by Neu, "Rheinita" by La Dusseldorf, "Morgengruss" by Popul Vuh, "Fly United" by Amon Duul II, "Soham" by Deuter, "I Want More" by Can, "Geradewohl" by Roedelius, "No Man's Land" by Tangerine Dream, "Daydream" by Ash Ra Tempel, "High Life" by Ibliss, and "Heisse Lippen" by Cluster.

Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very very cool set of weird grooves from Chico Hamilton. Some tracks are Latiny, others have lots of weird guitar, and they're all kind of spacey, but not exactly free. This period of Chico's is one of his weirdest, and it's kind of hard to figure out where he was heading, but the trip to that place is always a joy, and these tracks are all marked by a very fresh approach to jazz. Players include Willie Bobo, Jimmy Woods, Harold Land, Lou Blackburn, and other obscure jazz players from the LA underground. Gabor Szabo, of course, plays guitar on most tracks as well. With "Tarantula", "Swampy", "Fire Works", and "Carol's Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

World Pacific, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Gerald Wilson's hippest albums for World Pacific – and all of them are pretty darn hip! This set is one of Gerald's last for the label – cut in a run of very successful, and very strong big band soul jazz albums that brought together the cream of the crop of the LA underground. Like the other sets, this one's got a great lineup – with players that include Anthony Ortega, Hadley Caliman, Harold Land, Ernie Watts, and Bobby Hutcherson – but the real strength of the album lies with Groove Holmes, who cuts some pretty fantastic solos on the album's best tracks – bubbling his Hammond through the larger arrangements with the space and expression that Wilson allowed his individual players on these sessions. Titles include great versions of "Aquarius" and Coltrane's "Equinox" – plus the original tunes "Celestial Soul", "Scorpio Rising", "Pisces", and "Bluesnee". LP, Vinyl record album

Latiny tracks from Gerald Wilson – but done with his usual tight LA soul jazz groove! Wilson swings, as always, and leads a band of LA players with a fabulous mix of styles. The set's got Harold Land, Anthony Ortega, Laurindo Almeida, Roy Ayers, Teddy Edwards, and Jimmy Woods – to name but a few – and the performances are fantastic as each individual member surrenders to the larger aims of the group. Not that Wilson's totally blotting out their individual talents, though, as the record's filled with tiny eruptions of sound from individual members as they crash through a groovy set of tracks that includes "La Mentira", "The Serpent", "Man Of La Mancha", and "The Golden Sword". Great stuff, very dramatic, and very jazzy! LP, Vinyl record album

DalindeoSlavic Souls ... LP
BBE (UK), 2016. Sealed ... $11.99
A new sort of a shift for Dalindeo – as you might guess from the title – as the group adds in a bit of slavic roots to their usual jazzy groove! The core instrumentation is still live jazz, but the group also touch on some older Finnish tango modes with the rhythms, and work with the increased use of electric guitar we've heard on some of their more recent efforts – all of which makes for a sound that's unlike anything else you've probably heard! The tenor and trumpet tie together beautifully, creating rich waves of sound with lots of jazzy energy – while the guitar has a classic electro twang at times, soaring out over the heavy percussion and drums. Two tracks feature a guest vocalist – and titles include "Avalanche", "Hips & Curves", "Tell Me", "Bolero For Miss B", "Tarantella Finlandese", "Johnny's Nightmare", and "Slavic Souls".

Moserobie (Sweden), 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99
A fantastic debut album from pianist Johan Graden – stepping out here as a leader, at the beginning of what should be a fantastic career for years to come! Graden's both a composer and piano player, and he's working here with a style that's right up there with the best of the modern jazz giants from Scandinavia – particularly during that 60s period before things got too free, but when they'd moved quite far from more familiar roots in American jazz! The songforms here are beautiful – very haunting, but never too wispy – often elliptical, but with more than enough meat in the middle to keep things exciting – and often quite swinging, but in a very offbeat way. Graden plays piano, and the rest of the group features Per Texas Johansson on clarinet, bass clarinet, and flute – with Par Ola Landin on bass, Korand Agnas on drums, and Josefin Runsteen on violin. Titles include "Odromt", "Ummah", "Fidelix", "Sagen", "Bas Plessis", and "Ship Of Fools". LP, Vinyl record album

Rearward (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Easily the hippest of the Clarke-Boland Big Band Records from the classic years – a set of hard grooving tracks that really pushes the envelope of their style! There's a few elements here that are different than usual – such as the presence of electric piano on a few tracks, which creates a very new sound for the group, the presence of some exotic jazz influences (perhaps borrowed from the MPS Jazz Meets The World series), and the use of some edgier compositions on the set, including work by late 60s European free-thinkers, like Eddie Louiss, Albert Mangelsdorff, and John Surman. The reed work is really incredible in this setting – and is handled by Sahib Shihab, Ronnie Scott, Billy Mitchell, and Derek Humble – all of whom seem to blow with inspiration from Surman – using tones that are far more out there than usual. Titles include "Exorcisme", "Sakara", "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Osaka Calling", "Wintersong", and "Astrorama". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Brother (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
Magnificent! Charles Earland may well be our favorite-ever jazz organist – and after you hear this set, he'll probably be yours too! Charles really didn't emerge as a name until the beginning of the 70s – and although that decade did some nasty stuff to some of the 60s best organ players, Earland managed to really get a heck of a lot out of the decade, twisting and turning his style with all the changes in arrangements and instrumentation, yet always keeping it real, laying down killer solos and funky grooves that rank with some of the best organ work of his generation! This 2CD set is the first to really pay tribute to Earland's genius – and it's a massive batch of tracks the spans his early years at Prestige Records, and moves into his work for labels like Mercury, Columbia, and Muse. Disc 1 features "funky organ grooves" – 10 tracks from Prestige and Muse with a straight heavy soul jazz funk groove, cut with monster players like Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammad, Gary Chandler, and Virgil Jones. Tracks on the set include "Murilley", "Spinky", "Betty's Dilemma", "Sing A Simple Song", "Morgan", "My Favorite Things", and "Sing A Simple Song" – and the grooves are hard and funky all the way through! Disc 2 features "jazz funk and beyond" – beginning with Earland's spacier jam cuts on the Leaving This Planet session for Prestige, then moving into his jams on Arp and Electric Piano for Mercury, and some of his later R&B funk cuts for Columbia. Most of this work's never been on CD before – and the wealth of Earland's talent here will take you way past his early Black Talk years. Titles include "Phire", "Coming To You Live", "Red Clay", "Intergalactic Love Song", "Cosmic Fever", "Betty Boop", "Let The Music Play", and "Over & Over". CD

Charles really didn't emerge as a name until the beginning of the 70s – and although that decade did some nasty stuff to some of the 60s best organ players, Earland managed to really get a heck of a lot out of the decade, twisting and turning his style with all the changes in arrangements and instrumentation, yet always keeping it real, laying down killer solos and funky grooves that rank with some of the best organ work of his generation! This 2CD set is the first to really pay tribute to Earland's genius – and it's a massive batch of tracks the spans his early years at Prestige Records, and moves into his work for labels like Mercury, Columbia, and Muse. Disc 1 features "funky organ grooves" – 10 tracks from Prestige and Muse with a straight heavy soul jazz funk groove, cut with monster players like Melvin Sparks, Idris Muhammad, Gary Chandler, and Virgil Jones. Tracks on the set include "Murilley", "Spinky", "Betty's Dilemma", "Sing A Simple Song", "Morgan", "My Favorite Things", and "Sing A Simple Song" – and the grooves are hard and funky all the way through! Disc 2 features "jazz funk and beyond" – beginning with Earland's spacier jam cuts on the Leaving This Planet session for Prestige, then moving into his jams on Arp and Electric Piano for Mercury, and some of his later R&B funk cuts for Columbia. Most of this work's never been on CD before – and the wealth of Earland's talent here will take you way past his early Black Talk years. Titles include "Phire", "Coming To You Live", "Red Clay", "Intergalactic Love Song", "Cosmic Fever", "Betty Boop", "Let The Music Play", and "Over & Over". CD

Red GarlandSolar ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1962. Used ... $5.99
An obscure little quartet session from Red Garland – recorded with Les Spann on both guitar and flute, caught at a time when he was just starting to make waves on the New York scene! The presence of Spann gives the record a decidedly different feel than most of Garland's work on Prestige – as the hollow-body guitar tones bring some much bluesier inflections to some of the tunes, offset by more chromatic runs that really illuminate others. Red's own piano is still wonderfully soulful, and presented here with a pointed sense of economy on some numbers – and rhythm is by Sam Jones on bass and Frank Gant on drums. Titles include "Marie's Delight", "This Can't Be Love", "Blues For News", "I Just Can't See For Looking", and "Solar". CD

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldElla At Zardi's ... CD
Verve, 1956. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A previously-unreleased live performance by the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – recorded in a small club in Los Angeles during her first few months with the Verve label – but never issued at the time! The quality here is great, and the set captures Ella at a pivotal moment – stepping from the jazz underground to the huge stage of American fame where she'd shine in the 60s and 70s – with an initial stop at higher-class venues like this, where she could craft her vocal skills into a style that was virtually all her own! Make no mistake, Ella's still plenty jazzy and swinging here – but she's also already matured far past the style she was using at Decca just a few short years before – working with accompaniment from a trio that includes Don Abney on piano, Vernon Alley on bass, and Frank Capp on drums. CD presents material from both the first and second set of the performance – 21 tracks in all – and titles include "Why Don't You Do Right", "S Wonderful", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "It All Depends On You", "Little Boy", "Airmail Special", "Bernie's Tune", "How High The Moon", and "Cry Me A River".

Ella Fitzgerald & Billie Holiday with Carmen McRaeElla Fitzgerald & Billie Holiday At Newport (plus Carmen McRae too!) ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... $8.99
Two of the biggest singers who ever worked for Verve Records – captured perfectly at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957! Ella Fitzgerald steps out with a strong, lively groove on the first half of the set – swinging things with a looser, more upbeat quality than on some of her mellower Verve studio sets of the late 50s – really grooving it up with small combo backing from the trio of pianist Don Abney! Billie Holiday also gets some small combo backing too – a hip trio with Mal Waldron on piano, Joe Benjamin on bass, and Jo Jones on drums – often a bit more laidback than the group on Ella's sides, but in a great way that helps Holiday hit a very intimate sound, even before this large audience. Ella sings "This Can't Be Love", "Body & Soul", "April In Paris", "I Got A Crush On You", and "Airmail Special" – and Billie sings "Nice Work If You Can Get It", "What A Little Moonlight Can Do", "My Man", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Lady Sings The Blues". CD also features 3 more unissued bonus tracks by Ella – "Too Close For Comfort", "Lullaby Of Birdland", and "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down & Write Myself A Letter". And, added to all of this are 7 more tracks recorded by Carmen McRae at Newport, not issued by Verve in the 50s because Carmen was working for Decca! These sides feature trio backing too – from groups featuring Ray Bryant and Junior Mance on piano – on titles that include "Body & Soul", "Skyliner", "I'll Remember April", "Perdido", and "Love Is Here To Stay".

Chris AndersonInverted Image ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good ... $24.99
Nice and rarely seen trio side from under-recorded Chicago pianist Anderson. He plays here with Bill Lee and either Walter Perkins or Philly Joe Jones on drums, in a trio that made the core of the rhythm section on Frank Strozier's excellent Jazzland date, Long Night. The group is in fine form here, running through both standards and originals, and though Anderson's name isn't as well known as many other pianists, it ought to be, and he was no stranger to other Windy City jazz greats such as Johnny Griffin. Imagine a cross between Bill Evans and Elmo Hope, and you might get a picture of where he's coming from, though Anderson's voice is all his own, weaving some nice sinuous lines on a set that leans heavily on ballads here, including "You'd Be Nice To Come Home To", "My Funny Valentine" and the originals "See You Saturday" & the title track. LP, Vinyl record album
