Jeanne Lee & Ran BlakeNewest Sound Around ... CD
RCA/BMG (France), 1961. Used ... $9.99
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
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)

✨✧ Art BlakeyNight At Birdland Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. Tracks include "Split Kick", "Quicksilver", "Mayreh", and "A Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd street pressing, with deep groove, RVG etch, and ear. Label has an ink stamp. Cover has a bumped corner.)

✨✧ Kenny BurrellKenny Burrell On View At The Five Spot Cafe ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from the great guitarist Kenny Burrell – a smoking live session, and one that's got a bit more of an edge than some of his other records from the time! Kenny's guitar still has that impeccable tone throughout – but it's also matched by some wonderful tenor from the great Tina Brooks – making one of his few key Blue Note appearances here – in a massively cooking group that also features some piano from Bobby Timmons on three of the album's five tracks (Roland Hanna plays on the two others) – plus drums from Art Blakey, and bass from Ben Tucker – a pair wo work together wonderfully to create some really great grooves. Kenny himself seems to pick up great energy in the setting – and titles include "Lady Be Good", "Birk's Works", "36-23-36", and "Hallelujah". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG stamp, & "ear".)

✨✧ Jimmy SmithJimmy Smith At The Organ Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful early stuff from Jimmy Smith! The album is one of two great sessions that capture Smith in all his youthful prime, playing with other Blue Note greats like Art Blakey, Kenny Burrell, and Lou Donaldson – and nicely constructed tracks that take standard tunes and open them up into a whomping good soul jazz groove, thanks to Jimmy's monster organ playing. The solos are pretty free and gosh darn creative – and titles on this volume include "Summertime", "All Day Long", and "Yardbird Suite". LP, Vinyl record album
(63rd Street pressing with deep groove, RVG etching, and "ear". Labels have some smearing. Cover has moderate wear, a split spint and mostly split bottom seam.)

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side #5 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s/Early 80s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the best volume so far in this excellent series – a compilation collection that never lets us down, but which really brings something special to the mix this time around! There's a wealth of obscure modern soul tracks here – nicely grooving numbers from the 70s and early 80s, mixed with a few choice cuts from later years, too – but all with a warm glow that's plenty classic all the way through – that special blend of soul that made the 70s mellow groove so great! Many tracks are quite obscure, and haven't been reissued elsewhere – and the set features 20 titles in all, with cuts that include "Give Him Up" by First Generation, "Sha-La Bandit" by Delores Hall, "Love Is A Game" by Harry Ray, "Whisper In Your Ear" by Reggie Griffin, "I've Quit Running The Streets" by Garland Green, "Baby Don't Wake Me" by Del Davis, "No One Can Love You Like I Do" by Flakes, "Just The Way You Like It" by Leon Bryant, "I Wanna Spend My Whole Life With You" by Street People, "Be Real" by Tomorrow's Edition, "Let's Do It Now" by JALN Band, "Rain In My Life" by Prophecy, "Aah Dance" by Fine Quality feat Cuz, and Lisa Stansfield's great version of "A Case Of Too Much Love Making".
