✨✧ OnraChinoiseries Pt 3 ... LP
All City, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The triumphant conclusion of French beatmaker/producer Onra's Chinoiseries! 10 years after it began, Chinoiseries still trades in timeless boom bap, built from and inspired by and built from samples from Chinese music Onra picked up on his travels – giving it a very natural flow and a cohesive vibe. Volume 3 finds him really ratcheting up the moodier aspects – strings, bits of vocal and more – without skimping at all on the compelling beats and percussion. Wonderful stuff – here's hoping he comes back to it in the future beyond this stated final chapter! "The Final Chapter", "Loyalty", "Autumn Shining Over The Calm Lake", "Reminds Me Of...", "Hold My Hand", "Fake Porcelain", "Memories From 1968", "Last Cup Of Wine", "Zoodiac", "Trip To Yunnan", "A Distant Dream", "Moonlit Street", "Like The Seasons", "Voices In My Head", "Incantation", "Pearl Song", "Betrayal", "Persons On The Blacklist", "Bye Bye" and more.

Jeanne Lee & Ran BlakeNewest Sound Around ... CD
RCA (France), 1961. Used ... $11.99
An eerie album of modern jazz vocals – featuring the haunting voice of Jeanne Lee with the dark piano of Ran Blake. Most tracks feature only the two of them in duet – but a few feature Lee solo, and a few others have George Duvivier backing the pair up on bass. We like this stuff a lot better than much of Lee's later work – as it's still very much in a traditional jazz vocal realm, just pushed off-kilter a few notches or two, and painted with more abstract colors than usual. Lee's voice is nicely restrained, and has a dark Abbey Lincoln quality to it at the best moments. Titles include "Church On Russel Street", "Laura", "Love Isn't Everything", "Lover Man", "Season In The Sun", and "When Sunny Gets Blue". Plus, this CD reissue features 4 bonus cuts – including "Straight Ahead", "Vanguard", and "Left Alone". CD

VariousR&B On Lakewood Boulevard – Rare & Unreleased Rhythm & Blues From Southern California ... CD
Downey/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
An overlooked source of soul from the west coast scene – rough-edged material recorded by the small Downey family of labels – a company that's mostly known for its bigger hits in rock and roll at the time! Downey had a great flurry of instrumental rock hits in the early 60s – but at the same time, the company was also cutting a bit of the late R&B and early soul material that never got the right sort of exposure on the LA scene – tracks that would have ended up on Chess, Motown, or Atlantic if the artists had been working back east – but which instead had to find an outlet in the busy recording schedule of Downey. A number of these tracks circulated as singles back in the day, but far more were lost to the shifting sands of time – and either appear here for the first time, or saw brief release in later years since their recording – certainly never in a format this well-done. The package features a whopping 26 tracks in all – plus detailed notes on the legendary Downey studios and store, and the unique story of the music as well. Titles include "Midnight Bells Are Ringing", by T-Bone Walker Jr, "She Wobbles When She Walks" and "Jaywalkin'" by Paul Clifton, "Leave My Woman Alone" by Ace Holder, "Too Young" by Boyce Cunningham, "TV Guide" by Jessie Hill, "Stop Fooling Around" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Hope That It's Me" by Little Caesar & The Ark Angels, "Down The Street" and "TV Guide" by Jessie Hill, "Laura" and "Fare Thee Well" by The Debonaires, and "Night Scene" by Chuck Higgins.

Hank MobleyRoll Call ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good+ ... $499.99
A killer set of hardbop from the legendary Hank Mobley – recorded during the initial Mobley run at Blue Note, and a keen document of his amazing power on the tenor sax! The album's got a tightness that's almost impossible to believe – a summation of all the best bop trends of the 50s, rolled into a freewheeling and soulful expression, guided by Mobley's always-sharp ear for a groove. The group's great too – and Art Blakey is on drums, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and a young young Freddie Hubbard plays trumpet. All tracks are nice and long, with a firey hardbop sound, deeply held in place by Mobley's soulful tone on the tenor! Titles include "My Groove Your Move", "Baptist Beat", and "The Breakdown". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street stereo pressing, with RVG stamp. Vinyl and cover are nice!)

✨✧ Charlie ParkerOne Night In Birdland ... LP
Columbia, 1950. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare live material from Charlie Parker – recorded in the very familiar territory of the Birdland nightclub, but not issued until an LP release from the 70s! The material originally was broadcast on radio, but through the series of the Rose transcription disc archive – which meant better recording and preservation than most other radio material of the bop years – helping to make this album a real treasure among Bird fans in the years after his death. The lineup is a very tight bop-based one – with Fats Navarro on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, and Art Blakey on bass. Chubby Newsome adds vocals to "Embraceable You" – and the rest of the set includes "Wahoo", "Round Midnight", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "A Night In Tunisia", "Move", "The Street Beat", "Out Of Nowhere", "Little Willie Leaps", "Ornithology", "I'll Remember April", and "Cool Blues/52nd St Theme".

✨✧ Jimmy SmithHouse Party ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best hard-wailing all-star sessions that Jimmy did so well for Blue Note! The album features an amazing array of top-line players – like Tina Brooks, Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, and Kenny Burrell – and they all play with Smith in differing combinations, all of which have an open-ended groove that sounds very nice, and very much like the kind of material that Smith would have laid down at some small club in the late 50s. Titles include "Blues After All", "Au Private", and "Lover Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing with deep groove, RVG stamp, & "ear".)

Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good ... $149.99
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo 63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG stamp and ear. Cover has yellowed tape on all seams, a Stereo sticker, and a name in marker on the back.)

✨✧ Jamila WoodsHeavn ... CD
Jagjaguwar, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic debut from Chicago soul singer Jamila Woods – the kind of artist that makes us very proud to be located in the Windy City! Woods is an extremely inventive lyricist – strongly inspired by poetry, but also immediately trying to communicate in a wider spectrum with her sound – at a level that's maybe even smarter and more sophisticated than you'd guess from her look on the cover, which might make you think that she's just another pretty face in mainstream music! Instead, Woods seems ready to reinvent the role of the female singer in soul music – getting help from hip collaborators who include our hometown hero Chance The Rapper, as well as Nico Segal, Saba, Lorine Chia, and Noname. Titles include "Bubbles", "In My Name", "Popsicle", "Assata's Daughters", "Blk Girl Soldier", "Emerald Street", "Breadcrumbs", "Stellar", "Holy", and Good Morning" – plus "LSD", a tribute to our city's great lakefront!
