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".

Jackie McLean Quintet With Donald Byrd & Elmo HopeLights Out! (Jazz Classics Series) ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Dr JohnCity Lights ... LP
Horizon/Verve, 1978. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A bit of a change for Dr John, but a nice one too – a set that's somewhat more mature than some of his Atco albums, but in a really nice way! The album features fuller backings from Claus Ogerman, but a core groove that's still nice and soulful – jazzy leanings from a combo that includes Dr John and Richard Tee on keyboards, John Troopea on guitar, Will Lee on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums – the latter of whom kicks in a nice groove at the bottom of most numbers, making a subtle undercurrent of older funk amidst the smoothness. Ogerman's backdrops are never too excessive, and help the Dr break out of some of his older modes in a good way – not rehashing the same New Orleans ideas, but taking them instead to cooler California territory – a bit in the way that Allen Toussaint was doing on his best mainstream work of the 70s. Titles include "Dance The Night Away With You", "Rain", "Wild Honey", "Street Side", "Snake Eyes", "Fire Of Love", and "City Lights". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has light wear & a cutout notch.)

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 ... $19.99
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

✨✧ Billy Larkin & The DelegatesBlue Lights ... LP
Aura, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent early album by organ player Billy Larkin, and his first version of the Delegates, which included drummer Mel Brown. As an added bonus, the great tenor player Clifford Scott joins them on most of the tracks here, and the recording is one of his best sessions away from Bill Dogget. The tracks are short, hard, and very in-the-pocket – like the tracks on the group's Pigmy album, which is also from the same time. This is the kind of stuff that was played to death over and over on south side jukeboxes in the 60's. Check out cuts like "Sticky Wicket", "Transfusion", and "The Cooker", and it's easy to see why!

✨✧ Lee MorganCity Lights (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Lee Morgan's most sparkling sessions from the early years – a record that already shows a sense of depth and imagination that would take Lee way beyond simple hardbop solo work! There's a sensitivity here that owes something of a debt to Clifford Brown, yet which is much more modernist overall – touched, no doubt, by a set list that features tunes by Gigi Gryce and Benny Golson, and played in a spirit that's similar to the blend of soul jazz and modernism that both of those players were carving out at the time. Morgan's bandmates for the record include George Coleman on tenor and alto, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Ray Bryant on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all in tight formation, but with a sense of relaxed and easy flow that's rare, even in a Blue Note of this vintage! Titles include "You're Mine You", "Just By Myself", "Kin Folks", "City Lights", and "Tempo De Waltz". CD

✨✧ Freda PayneAfter The Lights Go Down Low (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1963. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

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

Tim BowmanInto The Blue ... CD
Purpose, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Guitarist Tim Bowman has a mighty nice touch – a smooth, soulful style that hearkens back to the 70s sound of George Benson – with a well-rounded vibe that's perfect for the R&B inflections in the instrumentation! Bowman's got a very strong sense of color – and rings out these strong waves from his strings with effortless ease – sometimes mixing in a bit of acoustic with the electric, to bring a raspy core to the record – but also just great when he's soaring along in a plugged-in mode! A few tracks feature guest vocals – which furthers the blend of soul and jazz in Tim's music – and the production is nicely understated in an indie way – which also helps avoid any too-mainstream smooth jazz cliches. Titles include "City Lights", "All I Need Is Love", "Love Forever More", "Boss", "Seaside Drive", "Tan Hermosa", "Amazing Grace Party", and "Detroit Funk". CD

Beth CarvalhoMundo Melhor ... CD
BMG/RCA (Brazil), 1976. Used ... $7.99
Beth Carvalho was one of the leading lights of the new samba generation of the 70s – and this great little album is a good illustration of the lady at her best! Beth can hit a lively groove with the best of them, but also bring a bit more expression to her voice as well – sometimes almost reaching territory of her more sophisticated partners in the MPB generation – but never losing sight of the lightly tripping qualities that make her samba so great! Core instrumentation comes from cavaquinho, 7 string guitar, and lots more percussion – arranged by Ivan Paulo and Rildo Hora, on titles that include "Antes Ele Do Que Eu", "Te Segura", "Salario Minimo", "Meu Escudo", "Divina E A Musica", "Mundo Melhor", and "Quero Alegria".

Impulse/GRP, Mid 60s. Used ... $11.99
Live material from a Village Gate performance that included the leading lights of the East Village free scene in the 60s – John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Grachan Moncur, and Archie Shepp! The set's a great counterpart to some of the full artist releases on Impulse at the time – and features key material that's not out there elsewhere! A really standout track is from a unique group that never got much recording time – one featuring Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Charles Tolliver on trumpet, James Spaulding on alto, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – on a killer version of Monk's "Brilliant Corners". Other titles include an Alber Ayler-led version of "Holy Ghost", a Grachan Moncur reading of "Blue Free" with Hutcherson on vibes, a Coltrane quartet take of "Nature Boy", and Archie Shepp doing "Hambone" in a group with Marion Brown on alto and Virgil Jones on trumpet.

Matt DennisWelcome Matt Dennis ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... $6.99
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

This is volume 3 of Prestige's set of European recordings by Dolphy, some of the last he would make before he passed away at a very young age. The group features Swedish piano giant Bent Axen, plus a rhythm section that includes Erik Moseholm on bass and Jorn Elniff on drums. Like most Dolphy recordings from the time, however, the main focus is on Dolphy himself, and the long tracks feature some beautiful extended solos on alto and bass clarinet. 3 tracks: "Woody N You", "When Lights Are Low", and "In The Blues (1-2-3)".

Russell GarciaWigville (10 inch LP) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1955. Very Good+ ... $69.99
Pure genius from Russ Garcia – one of our favorite arrangers of the 50s, and one of the few who could be modern, swinging, and surprisingly soulful at the same time! The set features Garcia's Wigville Band – a mid 50s ensemble that featured the leading lights of the west coast scene, arranged in a style that had plenty of the tight counterpoint of the time, but which also broke out in these amazingly expressive solos. Charlie Mariano, Bill Holman, and Jimmy Giuffre all get some key moments in on these sides – blowing beautifully in a very small amount of space, but packing some tremendous meaning into their well-crafted solos. Tunes include "Smogville", "The Lonely One", "Rock Road", "Wigville", "Butter Duck", "Then The Lid Blew Off", and "Love Row". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Gordon with Art BlakeyEarly Sessions (Introducing Joe Gordon/Blakey) ... CD
EmArcy/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1954. Used ... $14.99
A fantastic hard bop reissue! This CD combines two rare early sessions by trumpeter Joe Gordon, a fantastic player who died an early death, and never got to record as much as he should have. One set was recorded under Gordon's name, and the other under the name of Art Blakey – and both albums were only ever issued on rare 10" LPs during the mid 50s, making the reissue even more essential! There's a wonderful pre-Blue Note hardbop sound to the set – and every cut crackles with a sinister intensity that's just fantastic – made all the more special by a host of original compositions by both Gordon and Gigi Gryce, who arranged one of the session. One session features Gordon on trumpet, Gigi Gryce on alto, and Walter Bishop on piano; the other features Gordon, Charlie Rouse, and Junior Mance – and Blakey is on drums throughout. Titles include "Evening Lights", "Rifftide", "Lady Bob", "Eleanor", "Minority", "Hello", "Mayreh", and "Futurity". CD

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

Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple!

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.

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".

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

Kirk LightseyFirst Affairs ... CD
Limetree (Netherlands), 1987. Used ... $14.99
One of the most hard-edged albums we've ever heard from pianist Kirk Lightsey – thanks to the presence of Jerry Gonzalez on congas, which really adds a nice extra bite to the record! The whole lineup is great – and includes Santi Debriano on bass and Eddie Gladden on drums – but it really seems to be Jerry's percussion that kicks the whole album into gear – bringing up a bit more bottom than usual in Lightsey's work on the keys, and giving even the mellower moments a Latin current that really keeps things fresh – and which we would have liked to hear more from Kirk over the years. Titles include "Habiba", "For Albert", "One Finger Snap", "Blues On The Corner", and "Eighty One". CD

Mystery LightsMystery Lights ... CD
Wick/Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $5.99 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

Elektra/Run Out Groove, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99 36.98
Core sounds from the Stooges legendary Funhouse album – raw material from the sessions for the record – presented here on vinyl for the first time ever! Tracks here previously appeared on the 7CD Funhouse box set – issued at the end of the 90s – but this package sifts them down, and brings together some of the best moments – mixing short studio patter with really edgey moments that show Iggy and the group really taking their time to explore the sonic fringes, and really get things right! Titles include "Freak (LA Blues)", "Down On The Street (take 6 reel 6)", "TV Eye (take 5 reel 7)", "1970 (take 3 reel 1)", "Fun House (take 3 reel 9)", "See That Cat (TV Eye)", "Lost In The Future (take 3 reel 3)", and "Dirt (take 5 reel 11)".
