Alphonso JohnsonMoonshadows ... LP
Epic, 1976. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the earliest of bassist Alphonso Johnson's funky fusion albums for Epic! Moonshadows is a nice little set of choppy grooves that recalls the best Herbie Hancock moments of the early 70s, plus some of the side projects of the Headhunters. Warmly funky, but with a nice edge – with a more jazz funk rooted sound than the later, slightly heavier Spellbound! The great group of players includes Patrice Rushen is on keyboards, Benny Maupin on reeds, Lee Ritenour on guitars, Airto Moriera on percussion, Gary Bartz on sax, plus Narada Michael Walden and Ndugu Chancler on drums. Tracks include "Stump", "Cosmoba Place", "Involuntary Bliss", "On The Case", "Amarteifio", "Pandora's Box" and the breezy "Up From The Cellar", which features vocals by Flora Purim!

✨✧ Brothers JohnsonLook Out For #1 ... LP
A&M, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An all-star soul affair produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring the talents of studio greats like Harvey Mason, Billy Cobham, Toots Thielmans, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, and many others – not to mention the Brothers themselves! We'll be honest, though, in saying that we really think it's the great jazzy backing and the tight arrangements by Quincy that make this record so great. The Brothers' bass and vocal work is fine – but it's the non-bass instrumental moments that really make this album great, as you'll hear on cuts like the moog-heavy "Tomorrow", or the timbales/keyboard/flute groover "Thunder Thumbs & Lightnin Licks". Great stuff if you dig mid 70s work by Q – and featuring the tracks "I'll Be Good To You", "Land Of Ladies", "Free & Single", "Get The Funk Out Ma Face", and "The Devil". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Gilberto GilNightingale ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some edge wear and a few creases.)

✨✧ Harvey MasonGroovin You ... LP
Arista, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best solo records from Harvey Mason – best known as the drummer on some really monster 70s funky fusion sessions (such as Johnny Hammond's Gears album) – but a surprisingly well-rounded R&B artist overall! As with Norman Connors, another fusion drummer gone soul star, Harvey's working here in a style that mixes jazz influences with modern soul – grooving things for a more mainstream audience, but still keeping things real underneath. The record's filled with guest appearances by fusion greats – like Bob James, David Spinozza, Richard Tee, Lee Ritenour, and others – and Jim Gilstrap sings vocals on a cut or two. Titles include "The Race", "Groovin You", "Wave", "We Can", and "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner, promo sticker, and some peeling on top.)

✨✧ Patrice RushenBefore The Dawn ... LP
Prestige, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Patrice Rushen's second album – and a very sweet batch of keyboard funk! The record has Patrice working in a groove that's almost like that of Herbie Hancock at the time – using lots of electric piano, clavinet, and synth to craft some mighty fine jazz funk grooves. The group's a monster assemblage of Fantasy jazz players like Hubert Laws, Lee Ritenour, Hadley Caliman, and Harvey Mason – and the session crackles with a tight edge that you'll never find in any of Patrice's later work. One of our favorite early Rushen sets, and probably one of our favorite overall! Tracks are long, with lots of great spacey grooves, and titles include "Razzia", "Before The Dawn", "Kickin Back", and "Jubilation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John KlemmerHush ... LP
Elektra, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sly and subtle soul from saxophonist John Klemmer – a set that's somewhat smooth, but still filled with a great deal of feeling – and just the right blend of Klemmer's earlier searching style with some of the more soul-inspired modes of his later years. Klemmer plays tenor, soprano sax, and flute on the album – and often uses a bit of echoplex to space out his sound nicely – creating these long, drifting lines that really sound great! The record's got a subtle blend of jazz and soul influences, all tinged with a slightly spiritual undercurrent – as you might find on the best late 70s work from Norman Connors. Players include Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour on guitar, Russell Ferrante on piano and electric piano, Steve Schaeffer and Harvey Mason on drums, and Ray Armando on percussion. Clint Holmes and Phyllis St James both sing a bit on the set – again in sweetly subtle ways that never sound too commercial – and overall, given the date of the record, the album's a really tremendous one – much more like some late 70s spiritual soul fusion outing than you might expect! Titles include "Hush", "Let's Make Love", "Life Is So Beautiful", "Magic", "Hot", "I Love You Madly", and "Feelin Free". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
