DynamicsLights Out ... CD
Playback, Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Overlooked genius from The Dynamics – a Detroit soul group of the 60s, and one who never fully got the fame they deserved, had they gotten some sort of bigger exposure on Motown! Yet that's what also makes these guys great, too – as they've got that tight sound that the Motor City could do so well at the time, but a looseness too – a more fluid approach to their music that really makes things interesting here – as the group work through some wonderful material on rare late 60s singles for the RCA and Cotillion labels, as well as an obscure 1977 final single for Columbia! The package is a much-needed look at these overlooked moments from the group – and are a great complement to their few full length albums – bracketing the years before and afterwards, with a treasure trove of group soul material. Titles included "Lights Out", "Love Me", "Ain't No Love At All", "I Want To Thank You", "Too Proud To Change", "Murder In The First Degree", "We Found Love", "You Can Make It If You Try", "Ice Cream Love", "What Would I Do", "Ain't No Sun", "I Need Your Love", "The Girl's Got Soul", "Love Sick", and "Dum De Dum".

Tubby HayesAfter Lights Out ... LP
Jasmine (UK), 1956. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
A mid 50s cooker from one of our favorite tenor players ever – the legendary British reedman Tubby Hayes! The set's got a great mix of tight rhythms and stretched-out solos – handled with an energy that reminds us of some of Sonny Rollins' 50s material from the US, especially when Tubbs takes off on his tenor – with maybe a slight touch of early Jazz Messengers too! The group's a quintet, with trumpeter Dickie Hawdon in the frontline – and rhythms from Harry South on piano, Pete Elderfield on bass, and Bill Eyden on drums. The material's fairly straight, but Hayes' talent on the tenor is amazing and he blows with a confidence and creativity that will make you want to dig more deeply into the British scene of the 50s. Tracks include "Message To The Messengers", "Nicole", "Foolin Myself", "Hall Hears The Blues", and "Ode To Ernie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanLights Out! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... $6.99
Early genius from Jackie McLean – arguably his best pre-Blue Note album, and a sinister batch of hardbop tracks recorded with a great group that includes Donald Byrd on trumpet and Elmo Hope on piano! The tracks are long, with a bit of the "blowing session" feel of other Prestige albums from the time – but they're also a lot tighter, and McLean really steps to the forefront on his solos, blowing with a sharp-edged sound that's really amazing – and which hints strongly at the even more adventurous turns he'd take later in the 60s. Tracks include "Up", "Lorraine", "Inding", and "Kerplunk". Great stuff all the way through! CD

EnchantmentSoft Lights Sweet Music ... LP
RCA, 1980. Very Good ... $0.99
The only RCA album from Enchantment – and a great little set that has the group stretching out from their earlier records on United Artists! The groove here is still awash in the great harmonies we've always loved from the group – and production is by Don Davis, who always has a great ear for preserving the core soul of any act like this – while also helping them focus their sound as well! The mix is quite similar to excellent work Don did with the Dramatics at the end of the 70s – and Enchantment really benefit with a similar ear for a bouncy groove, and that great Davis way of knowing just the right point when to slow things down on an album, too. Titles include "Settin It Out", "I Believe In You", "Moment Of Weakness", "You & Me", "I Can't Be The One", "Soft Lights Sweet Music", and "I Can't Fake It". LP, Vinyl record album

Freda PayneAfter The Lights Go Down Low (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1963. Used Gatefold ... $11.99
An early gem from singer Freda Payne – recorded back in the days when she was a jazz vocalist, years before her famous hits as a soul artist in the early 70s! The album's a darkly-tinged session with arrangements by Manny Albam – done in the late nite mode that you'd expect from the title, and featuring the kind of sad songs that you'd hear on an album from the time by Lorez Alexandria. The highlight of the album is a great vocal reading of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" – and other tracks include "Out Of This World", "Sweet September", "Blue Piano", and "After The Lights Go Down Low".

One of Kellee Patterson's biggest club hits – a slow-building number that starts out with plenty of bass at the bottom, and which hits a nice midtempo groove that makes the most of Patterson's sweet and light vocals! The whole thing's got a warm glow that we totally love – a depth of soul that takes it way beyond a regular club tune, and which is served up with some nice jazzy changes. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dave Grusin5 Original Albums (One Of A Kind/Mountain Dance/Out Of The Shadows/Night Lines/Cinemagic) (5CD set) ... CD
GRP (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Five full albums from keyboardist Dave Grusin – packaged together in a single set, with tiny LP-styled covers for each CD! First up is one of our favorites – the album One Of A Kind, which is a sweet funky fusion outing that really sums up some of the best Dave Grusin modes of the 70s! This excellent LP from 1977 really captures the best of the Grusin soundtrack style – heard in the 70s on shows like Barretta, or in films like Three Days of the Condor – mellow fusion with a tightly arranged style – lots of nicely isolated instrumentation, and the kind of spare and spacey grooves that you'd expect from a hip CTI session! Musicians include Grover Washington on saxes, Dave Valentin on flute, Ron Carter on bass, and Steve Gadd himself – plus Grusin on a lot of sweet keyboards – and titles include great cut "Modaji", plus "Heart Is A Lonely Hunter", "Catavento", and "Montage". Mountain Dance has a similar vibe, too – nice and lean – and one of Dave's funkier albums of the time – with cuts that include "Captain Caribe", "Rondo", "City Lights", "Rag Bag", and "Mountain Dance". Out Of The Shadows has a nice sort of vibe – not the too-smooth later sound of the GRP label, and instead this nice balance of electric keyboards and acoustic piano – delivered with help from key contemporaries who include Lee Ritenour on guitar and Steve Gadd on drums! Production is nicely understated – and titles include the mellow stepper "Serengeti Walk", plus "Last Train To Paradiso", "She Could Be Mine", "Crystal Morning", "Hokkaido", and "Sweetwater Nights". Night Lines is a record that has Dave Grusin elevating a bit more into the jazz/soul mainstream – as the set has the keyboardist working with a few more crossover modes than before, but all in a way that seems to demonstrate his many years in various kinds of music! The album was a key entry in the new sound of fusion during the mid 80s – maybe a bit sharper than later smooth jazz, but with efforts from some leading lights of that generation to come – including David Sanborn and Marcus Miller. Phoebe Snow sings a bit on the record – which might provide her with one of her more exciting settings in years – and titles include "Power Wave", "Thankful N Thoughtful", "Night Lines", "Tick Tock", "Bossa Baroque", and "Secret Place". Cinemagic is a famous pairing of the keyboards of Dave Grusin with the orchestrations of the London Symphony Orchestra – served up at a level that made the record a giant hit for so many folks who wouldn't have touched a Dave Grusin record a decade before! The tunes are a bit different than usual – all film tunes, as you might expect, delivered in a way that's not afraid to lean on all the sentimental currents of the tunes – which come from films that include Tootsie, Heaven Can Wait, The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, Three Days Of The Condor, and The Goonies. Titles include "Condor", "An Actor's Life", "It Might Be You", "Heaven Can Wait", "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter", and "Goodbye For Cathy". CD

✨✧ VariousLarry Banks' Soul Family Album ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A key force in New York City soul music during the 60s, and one who's finally getting his due – the gregarious Larry Banks – producer, performer, songwriter, and all-around great guy – easily the "glue" that held together countless records back in the day! The set's a wonderful discovery in 60s soul – and brings to light a wide range of work that all bears Banks' touches at some level – often as the writer of the tune, but also as the producer at points, especially on some of the more indie efforts. This package is one of the last compilations initiated by Dave Godin before his untimely early death – and it's got a real Godin-like depth to it – with track-by-track notes, reflections on banks, a bit of history, and more – all to tell this under-told story, and present it with some really wonderful music! Titles include "Go Now" by Bessie Banks, "My Life Is No Better" by The Dynamics, "Come On Act Right" by The Geminis, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by Larry Banks, "Living In The Land Of Heartache" by The Cavaliers, "You'd Better Get Hip Girl" by Kenny Carter, "What Good Am I" by Jaibi, "We Can Do It" by The Shaladons, "Don't You Know I Love You" by The Pleasures, "Doctor" by Bessie Banks, "Lights Out" by Kenny Carter, "You Don't Know What You're Missing" by The Exciters, "No Brag Just Fact" by The Hesitations, and "I Couldn't Build A World" by The Devonnes.

Gene Barge, David Matthews, & Andre DavisStony Island – Original Soundtrack ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), New Copy ... About October 25, 2017
A sweet set of soundtrack funk – from a film named after one of our favorite streets in Chicago! Although the record's got an approach that's perhaps a bit tighter and smoother than anything going down on Stony in the late 70s, it does manage to share a good deal of styles with the Chi-soul scene of the time – thanks to work on the record from Chicagoans Gene Barge, Sonny Seals, and Tennyson Stephens! Many of the tracks on the set have a bad-walking soul approach – one that's kind of a mixture of funky and bluesy – and these are laid out next to some jazzier instrumentals that we like most of all – tunes that have a great funky soundtrack feel, but with a bit more fusion touches than usual, probably because of the work of David Matthews. Titles include "Percy Fired", "Party Lights", "High Speed Posters", "Back To Business", "Chase The Train", "Gangster City", "Dream Ride", and "Peace Of Mind". CD

Bon Bones – Yuu Uesugi & Itsumi Komano QuintetMelba's Mood ... CD
Somethin Cool (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $28.99
A tribute to the legendary trombonist Melba Liston – served up here by a female Japanese duo who greatly continue her legacy in jazz! Like Liston, both Yuu Uesugi and Itsumi Komano can act both as soloists and arrangers – working here in a way that weaves their horns together beautifully over piano, bass, and drums – then breaking out with sublime solos that really demonstrate the different voices of each player. The approach is a bit like some of the smaller combo JJ Johnson/Kai Winding material of the 50s, but the Bon Bones also have a more sophisticated, soulful sound that really lives up to Liston's legacy – especially once the solos get going. Titles include "Oatmeal Cookie", "The Brilliant", "Blue Lights", "Suspender Woman", "Sunflowers", and "Desert Moonlight". CD

Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... $8.99
A lesser-known set from vocalist Matt Dennis – not as well-remembered as his 50s dates for RCA and Kapp, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Matt's working here with full backings from Sy Oliver – in a set that showcases his talents more as a singer than a songwriter – but which still manages to include a few great Dennis originals. And despite a cover that looks a bit lurid – with Dennis cornering a model inside a hotel room – the overall feel of the record is quite homey and domestic, with tunes that echo images of hearth and family, but often with the kind of nod and a wink which you might expect from Matt's usual approach to a tune. Titles include "Home", "Welcome Mat", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "By The Fireside", "A Cup Of Coffe A Sandwich & You", "Let's Put Out The Lights", and "Your Family". CD

EmphasisEmphasis ... CD
Swiss Pick/Sonorama (Germany), 1975. Used ... $2.99
A rare bit of funky fusion – with some really great guitars and keyboards! The original album is quite rare – recorded in Switzerland, and only issued in a handful of copies back in the mid 70s – but the groove here is tight enough to rival that of bigger fusion heavyweights on MPS and some of the other European labels – with a depth in quality that really makes the record worth rediscovering all these many years later! The keyboards are especially great – electric piano and other bits, played with a style that's nicely frenetic, but never in a way that's too rock-jamming – thanks to the strong sense of space the rhythm section brings to their grooves. Titles include versions of "Vera Cruz" and "Too High" – plus originals "Very Lights", "Rocking Bird", "Rainmaker", "Dr Bonnie Mr Clyde", "Leave Me Alone", and "Gargantua". CD

Groundbreaking work from one of the hippest jazz groups going in the mid 50s – the Donald Byrd/Gigi Gryce Jazz Lab, a wonderful group of players who could play with a tight soul jazz finish, yet also throw in some nice modern jazz touches! Gryce's arrangements and alto work are always a treat, and Byrd's youthful trumpet solos give the record a nice sense of character – spinning out over some great original compositions tha sparkle with soulful imagination. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – and titles include "Onion Head", "Bat Land", "Blue Lights", and "Xtacy". CD

One of Bobby Hutcherson's most important albums ever – and an essential piece of "new thing" jazz that ranks up there with such key Blue note sessions of the genre as Tony Williams' album Life Time, Dolphy's Out To Lunch, and Jackie McLean's One Step Beyond! Hutcherson's sound on the vibes is amazing – metallic, yet melodic – in a sublime blend of the modern and the soulful, all wrapped up in tones and colors that few other players have ever managed to get from the instrument! All the other players on the session really rise to the occasion too – and the album features tremendous work from Sam Rivers, Freddie Hubbard, Andrew Hill, and Joe Chambers. Titles include "Ghetto Lights", "Catta", "Les Noirs Marchent" and "Idle While". LP, Vinyl record album

ImaginationIn The Heat Of The Night ... CD
MCA/Wagram, 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Imagination look like a trio of sci-fi centurions on the cover of the set – but the sound within is nicely down to earth, and of the sort that always made the group one of the leading lights in early 80s mainstream soul! The general groove here is mostly in a catchy midtempo mode – with lots of snapping basslines and synth percussion, nicely offset by the trio's harmony vocals and the hook-heavy lyrics of the tunes – all laid out at a level that's tight, but never too commercial – maybe because the whole thing seems to come so easy to the group! There's a number of nice mellow groovers on the set – including "All Night Loving", "Heart N Soul", and "One More Love" – and the album also features a long version of their hit "Just An Illusion".

Webster LewisLive In Norway – The Club 7 Live Tapes ... CD
Plastic Strip Press (Norway), 1971. New Copy 2CDs ... $18.99
The earliest work we've ever heard from keyboardist Webster Lewis – and a set that's quite different than his late 70s groovers for Columbia Records! The music here is equal parts jazz, soul, and funk – spun out of over a set of long tracks recorded in Oslo at the start of the 70s – and done in a very righteous mode overall! Even at this early age, Lewis is a tremendous talent on the keys – hitting the Hammond and electric piano with a groove that's somewhere in between Doug Carn or Charles Earland at the time – and always with a free-flowing, very exploratory sound that's wonderfully recorded throughout – and which almost makes the record feel like an American classic on the Black Jazz label! The drums on the set are by Jimmy Hopps – who brings in some funky beats at just the right moments – and other musicians include Bobby Greene on alto and Stan Strickland on tenor – plus Judd Watkins on vocals, who sings on some of the best songs with a deep-voiced quality that's really great! This double-length reissue really expands past the previous version on Counterpoint – and the 2CD set features 15 tracks that include "Do You Believe", "Saturday Night Opening", "Dear Sister", "Qvote Unqvote", "Mr Knots", "Space Rock", "Silent Lights", "Up On The Roof", "Club 7 Latin", "For Arne", "Twelve Gates To The City", and "Intermezzo".

Titles include "Last Night", "My Babe", "Sad Hours", "Blues With A Feeling", "Off The Wall", "Juke", "Mean Old World", "I Got To Go", "Shake Dancer", "Thunderbird", "Ah'W Baby", "Too Late", "Boom Boom Out Go The Lights", "You Better Watch Yourself", and "Blue Lights".

A richly jazzy score from the great Armando Trovajoli – one that has him bringing out all of his best groovy elements, even early in the 60s! The tunes here range from upbeat and horn-based numbers to lighter, more playful tunes that use organ, accordion, and sax to work out some very sexy little themes. The tunes are all very nicely varied – so that each number presents a new musical theme, and continues to create fresh delights throughout the album – and if anything, our only complaint about the soundtrack would be that it's too darn short!

Kenny Burrell5 Original Albums (Introducing/Kenny Burrell/Blue Lights Vols 1 & 2/Five Spot Cafe) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy 5CD ... $16.99
An amazing early run of music from guitarist Kenny Burrell – five albums in a single package, each with LP-style covers! First up is his Blue Note debut – Introducing Kenny Burrell – arguably one of the greatest Kenny Burrell albums ever! Unlike some of Kenny's other sessions, which hide his guitar in arrangements that are a bit too complicated – this one's a nicely stripped-down album that sets his hollow electric in a group with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Candido on conga. The tracks are nicely laidback, and Kenny hits some nice deep grooves on cuts like "Fugue N Blues", "Takeela", and "Delilah". Plus, the album also includes a totally cool percussion-only track – "Rhythmorama", which is a duet between Kenny Clarke and Candido! Next is the self-titled Kenny Burrell – Blue Note 1543 – early genius from Kenny – a set that features the guitarist sounding beautiful in a variety of settings, all of them great! The format really mixes things up nicely – almost showing a more diverse Kenny than in later years – as one track is solo, and the others feature quartet, quintet, and sextet lineups – with players who include JR Monterose or Frank Foster on tenor, Tommy Flanagan or Bobby Timons on piano, Oscar Pettiford or Sam Jones on bass, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, and Kenny Clarke or Shadow Wilson on drums. The solo track is a great version of "But Not For Me" – and other titles include "Mexico City", "Cheeta", "Phinupi", and "Now See How You Are". Next are the two records that make up Blue Lights Vols 1 & 2 – material that catches Kenny in the perfect Blue Note jam session mode of the late 50s – one used also with Jimmy Smith, and which features a number of the label's star players hitting hard with the main soloist. Players on the two volume set include Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons piano, Junior Cook and Tina Brooks tenor, Louis Smith trumpet, and Art Blakey on Drums. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. Titles include "Yes Baby", "Scotch Blues", "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", "Phinupi", and "Caravan". Last up is On View At The Five Spot Cafe – 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". CD

Roberta FlackBlue Lights In The Basement ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A sweet 70s classic from Roberta Flack – recorded with a mellow jazzy undercurrent that really fits the spirit of the title! The set's a bit more varied in moods than some of Flack's previous Atlantic efforts – showing a stretching of wings from Roberta, but still very much in some righteous territory overall – given that Eugene McDaniels is overseeing the record on production. Arrangements are by Harry Whittaker, Hugh McCrackin, Leon Pendarvis, and Roberta herself – and instrumentation is warmly electric, yet never too slick to wash away the deeper soul of Flack's vocals. Titles include "The Closer I Get To You", "Why Don't You Move In With Me", "Love Is The Healing", "Soul Deep", "Where I'll Find You", "25th Of Last December", "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", and "Fine Fine Day".

Mystery LightsMystery Lights ... CD
Wick/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 13.98
A raw quintet with a classic garagey groove – a sound that takes us right back to the glory days of The Seeds and Sonics – produced to perfection by the Daptone team, with a sound that's every bit as vintage as their work on soul and funk! These guys are a perfect group to kick off the label's new Wick imprint – one that's dedicated to older rock modes the way the main label's dedicated to older soul – and if The Mystery Lights had the chance to record back in the day, we'll bet that all these many years later, their singles would be talked about in the reverent tones reserved for a rare few from the 60s garage years. Titles include "Candelight", "21 & Counting", "Follow Me Home", "Melt", "Too Many Girls", "What Happens When You Turn The Devil Down", and "Flowers In My Hair Demons In My Head". CD

Unlike too many hip hop groups that break up, only to have each individual MC release a lot of weak material, Sadat X stays on track with production by Showbiz and Diamond D. If you ever thought that Brand Nubian was all about Grand Puba, Sadat's verses on these two overlooked cuts will remind you how crucial Sadat was/is to the Brand Nubian sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Joanie SommersLet's Talk About Love ... LP
Warner, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very powerful little session from Joanie Sommers – and like most of her work from the time, one that's done in a great blend of jazz and mainstream pop! Orchestrations are by Tommy Oliver, and there's plenty of dynamic horn passages to keep things interesting – even on the mellower numbers, which are often some of the best in the set – and feature Joanie's sweeter vocals amidst a darker bank of trombones that dip and turn gently. The more upbeat numbers often feature some nice percussion touches to get the groove going – and titles include "Till There Was You", "Make The Man Love You", "Spring Is Here", "Let's Talk About Love", "After The Lights Go Down Low", "Namely You", "Kiss & Run", and "I'll Never Stop Loving You". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Time, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The lovers have it – in this wonderful collection of ballads and mellow cuts – put together with the same sort of sublime track selection of the other CDs in this series! The tracks on the set are right on the cusp of the hits – and feature lots of classic numbers by smaller groups that flourished briefly, may have cracked the charts, but who have been sadly neglected by most reissue projects. Titles include "I'm Gonna Stay" by The Visitors, "Can't Go On Living" by Nat Turner Rebellion, "I Wish It Were Me" by The Implements, "5 10 15 20 Years Of Love" by Chicago Gangsters, "Human" by The Ad Libs, "He Made You Mine" by Brighter Side Of Darkness, "The Love You Forgot" by Cynthia & The Imaginations, and "Baby I Love You" by Jaggerz.

Soul Time, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
20 tracks of sweet sweet sweet soul! Like others in this series, this mighty 18th volume pulls together an incredible range of mellow soul tracks from the 70s and end of the 60s – sublime harmony soul, of the type that keeps us up late at night sorting through our older 45s! Thankfully, 20 of our favorites are on this set – nicely packaged with surprisingly great sound, even though there's no real notes with the set. Titles include "After I Cry Tonight" by Lanier & Company, "You're Breaking My Heart" by The Mighty Marvelows, "I Can Feel The Tears" by Gents & The Lady, "Just For You" by Windy City, "What Makes Me Love You" by The Sequins, "I'd Like To Say I Love You" by The Elusions, and "You Are Part Of Me" by Heaven & Earth.

✨✧ LeadersOut Here Like This ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1988. Used ... Out Of Stock
Adventurous work from this avant jazz "supergroup" – one that's made up of players who are normally leaders on their own, but who work together here with the great spirit of a group! The lineup features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe on alto, Chico Freeman on tenor and soprano sax, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Don Moye on percussion – and the tracks are longish, overall – and shift easily between the straighter and more outside proclivities of the players on the set – making for a well-rounded album that showcases the mainstream aspects of the American avant scene of the time. Titles include "Donkey Dust", "Portraits", "Felicite", "Loves I Once Knew", and "Zero". LP, Vinyl record album
