Kenny RankinInside Kenny Rankin ... CD
Little David/Atlantic, 1975. Used ... $4.99
Pure 70s genius from Kenny Rankin – and an album that's filled with beautifully compressed tunes that squeeze together jazz and soul into a unique sound that's Kenny's own! There's a gentleness to the set that's extremely refreshing – a floating quality to the vocals that's a bit like that of Tim Buckley, but never as overdone as in Buckley's work – and which Kenny takes to a whole new level here with a breezy scatting sort of approach. Gary Burton plays some great vibes on some of the album's best tracks, and titles include "Inside", "Lost Up In Lovin You", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "Up From The Skies", "The Feeling", "Marie", "You", and a great cover of "Creepin".

Kenny RankinLike A Seed ... LP
Little David, 1972. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Indescribably beautiful work from Kenny Rankin – a jazzy blend of vocals and folk – delivered with a warm and soulful tone that's unlike anyone else! The whole thing's great – really very much its own spirit, and kind of a bright light after a host of doom and gloom late 60s folk-based singers in popular music. Of course, Kenny's still got something of a righteous feel, and lets his politics sneak out from time to time – but his overall sound is wonderfully redemptive, without being cloying in kind of a James Taylor sort of way. The instrumentation is great too – with just the right use of acoustic guitar in warm chromatic tones, plus nice touches on flute and saxes from Jim Horn, and gently groovy backings that never dampen Kenny's light. Titles include "Sometimes", "Peaceful", "Stringman", "You Are My Woman", "I Was Born", and "Yesterday's Lies". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lewis & Hank JonesEvening With Two Grand Pianos ... LP
Little David, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's no lie, as John Lewis and Hank Jones team up here in a live recording of work on grand piano – served up here with no other instrumentation for accompaniment! The stereo nature of the album has Jones in the left channel and Lewis in the right – duetting strongly in a way that has both players trading lines warmly as they move through a variety of traditional jazz standards. There's an easygoing, friendly feel to the record that's very nice – but the recording quality is anything but sloppy. Notes ring out beautifully with a great sense of clarity, and titles include "I'll Remember April", "Willow Weep For Me", "Billie's Bounce", "Confirmation", and "St Lous Blues".

David BowieYoung Americans ... LP
RCA, 1975. Very Good ... $24.99
A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album! Bowie was at the height of his Ziggy Stardust fame when this one was recorded – a drastic left-turn in styles, forged during a point in his American tour when he could take a break, head to Philly, plug in at the Sigma Sound Studios, and come up with some fantastic little soul tunes, thanks to help from Luther Vandross! The album sparkles with the best sound of Luther's early work – and you'll hear more than a bit of Luther's work on his own, and his tunes with Gregg Diamond on the set. Features the sublime tracks "Win", "Fascination", "Right", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "Can You Hear Me" – as well as the hits "Young Americans" and "Fame". LP, Vinyl record album

David Earle JohnsonTime Is Free ... LP
Vanguard, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
A weird little record – but not without some nice moments! The record was produced and put together by Jan Hammer – and in many ways, is very much like his hard-jamming fusion work fo the time. Earle plays congas, timbales, moog, and other percussion – and also sings on a number of cuts, often with some sort of vocal programming. Hammer's on most tracks too – jamming away on keyboards and synth with a strong sound that predates Miami Vice, and which sounds a lot rougher and meaner. There's definitely some good tracks on here that would appeal to any fan of funky fusion, but there's also some weirder noodlier bits too. Titles include "Sea Sand & Sun", "Safes", "Skin Long & Street Suite", "Lofts", "Time Is Free", and "Ten Little Times". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David RuffinDavid Ruffin/Me & Rock 'N Roll Are Here To Stay ... CD
Motown/Real Gone, 1973/1974. New Copy ... $6.99 16.98
Early 70s Motown from David Ruffin – a pair of albums on a single CD! First up is a self-titled set from Motown giant Ruffin – and a record that pairs him with producer Bobby Miller, who'd worked some real late 60s magic with The Dells! As with that group, Miller has a wonderful way of letting the rough lead vocals come right to the front of the mix – while still serving up a batch of backings with a lot of power and focus – and a sense of complexity that comes through in both Miller's original tunes for the date, and the following arrangements from David Van DePitte. This unified approach gives the record even more focus than other Ruffin albums of the period – and the whole thing stands not just as a lasting tribute to his talents, but also to the way that Motown was getting better and better at recording full albums over singles. Titles include "Common Man", "I Miss You", "A Little More Trust", "Go On With Your Bad Self", and "Day In the Life of the Working Man". Me & Rock & Roll Are Here To Stay is a record with a strange title, but a great sound – and a real righteous step forward for David Ruffin! Given Ruffin's work for Motown – both as a solo act and in The Temptations – we're hardly likely to associate him with rock and roll – but we can say that the record has David working with more badass arrangements than ever before – a set of backings from Paul Riser that are produced by Norman Whitfield with some of the headier, more powerful elements he had brought to Ruffin's former group in the late 60s! There's some great basslines, sweet keyboards, and lots of sharp elements that feel like they might have been lifted off a hip 70s soul soundtrack – all in support of the record's powerful lyrics, half of which were written by Whitfield. Titles include "I Just Want To Celebrate", "No Matter Where", "Superstar", "I Saw You When You Met Her", "City Stars", and a great version of "Smiling Faces Sometimes". CD

✨✧ David BowieLegacy (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sony, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Mid 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty faultless 20 song compilation of classic Bowie – not so much a greatest hits collection is it is a collection of signature tracks from classic eras – from as far back as 1969's "Space Oddity" up to 2016's stunning "Lazarus". It's really one flawless track after another, and as wildly different in sound and style as individual tracks can be, Bowie is such a bonafide original that you can listen straight through. If you don't own every album, this is pretty great little collection of career highlights – with "Let's Dance', "The Man Who Sold The World", "Young Americans", "The Jean Genie", "Life On Mars (2016 mix)", "Under Pressure", "Starman", "Heroes", "Fame", "Modern Love", "Rebel Rebel" and more.

✨✧ David BowieNo Plan EP ... CD
Columbia, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that may well be worth it just for the first vocal line from David Bowie – which begins "Look up here, I'm in heaven"! The set brings together Bowie's final recordings, done in close collaboration with jazzman Donny McCaslin, whose work on saxes really shapes some great elements in the background – and furthers the moody spirit of David's vocals. It may just be because we lost him, but there's a moodiness here that grabs us maybe even more than Blackstar – on the titles "Lazarus", "No Plan", "Killing A Little Time", and "When I Met You". CD

✨✧ DavidAnother Day, Another Lifetime ... LP
VMC, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous piece of work from the little-known David – tripped-out pop with a great blend of psychedelic and sunshine influences! At one level, there's a garagey sound here that's right in keeping with the Sunset Strip scene of the late 60s – with ample use of fuzzy guitars and tinny organ lines – but the group also often sings in some warmer harmonies, and adds in more baroque instrumentation on many tunes – including strings and woodwinds that almost give the set the sound of a record by Love or The Left Banke! Oddly, these arrangements were handled by later soul maestro Gene Page – who really seems to have a great feel for the sound that the group was going for – working beautifully with the group's wonderful original tunes, all composed by singer Warren Hansen, an enigmatic talent we'd like to know more about! Titles include "Professor Crawford", "Of Our Other Days", "Mirrors Of Wood", "Time M", "So Much More", "Another Day Another Lifetime", "Now To You", and "Tell Me More". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David WeissSnuck Out ... CD
Sunnyside, 2011. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
David Weiss has a great conception for this hip little set – a contemporary exploration of the best spiritual energy running through the Blue Note scene in the late 60s – based around compositions by Charles Tolliver, Wayne Shorter, and Charles Moore – the last of whom was featured with the Kenny Cox group from Detroit at the end of the 60s! In keeping with the chosen work, there's a great balance here between swing, soul, and modernism – tunes that unfold strongly with the best sort of progressive jazz energy, yet never get too indulgent – and really let the main soloists take flight over a complicated groove provided by the other members of the group. Weiss is wonderful on trumpet – reminding us of Charles Tolliver back in the day – and other players include JD Allen on tenor, Nir Felder on guitar, Matt Clohesy on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums – on tunes that include "Revillot", "Gravity Point", "Paraphernalia", "Hidden Meanings", and "Snuck In".

Sonic Healing Ministries, 2001. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A raw, live set from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – but a great little record that really reminds us of a classic 60s session on ESP! Boykin's reeds are wonderful throughout – filled with the depth of soul we might expect from Kalaparusha or Albert Ayler – and set up here in an open-ended trio with Josh Abrams on bass and Andre Beasley on drums. The tracks are all quite longish and free – but never sloppy or overindulgent – held together with a tremendous focus and presence in Boykin's horn! Titles include "Victory Honor & Glory", "Conundrum", "Big & Fine", "The King", and "Meditation For Momma Long". CD

✨✧ David Lynch & Alan R SpletEraserhead – Original Soundtrack (silver vinyl pressing – plus bonus 7-inch single, artwork and download) ... LP
Sacred Bones, 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little album – a unique sound collage that was pretty surprising for the time, given the mainstream circulation it received on the heels of David Lynch's Eraserhead film! Side one of the record features some pretty abstract noise – almost prefacing some of the best 80s experiments from the UK scene, but mixed with odd snippets of music, including a bit of Fats Waller, which sort of humanizes the whole thing! Side 2 is even more unusual – and features the classic track "In Heaven", also known as the "Lady In The Radiator Song" – a lovely tune that's right up there with the lullaby in Rosemary's Baby. Great reissue package – even more beautiful than the original album – with a 16 page book, three 11" x 11" prints, a digital download, and a limited 7" of "In Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David NewmanMany Facets Of David Newman ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A genius album from David Newman – and a record that follows strongly in the mode of the excellent Bigger & Better set! Newman's playing here with a really far-reaching groove that's miles ahead of his initial work for Atlantic – really stretching out at the end of the 60s, in an array of well-chosen influences. The record features a great little funky remake of Calvin Arnold's classic funky 45 "A Funky Way To Treat Somebody", plus some really beautiful tunes in a Coltrane-esque mode, with arrangements by William Fischer – spinning out in modal and exotic tones that we never would have expected. Titles include "Children Of Abraham" and "Chained No More", and they both feature Newman playing freer than you've ever heard him! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousRiot City – Rocking Northwest Instrumentals ... CD
Jerden/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There must have been something in the water up in the Pacific Northwest back in the 60s – because for some reason, that tiny corner of America was home to a hell of a lot of rocking little combos – a good deal of whom are featured on this set! These guys are so great, they don't need any vocals at all – as most of these Northwest groups manage to say as much with a guitar line, sax solo, or keyboard part as other groups would with a vocal – and we might even say that the lack of lyrics gives these cuts even more of an edge than some of their contemporaries, as there's no outdated lyrical references or silly chorus parts – just searing instrumentation all the way through, played by some hot-blooded young musicians. All cuts come from the Jerden label – although some were never issued back in the day – and the collection features great notes by 60s indie rock historian Alec Palao, who also put the whole thing together. Titles include "Riot City" by Rocky & His Friends, "Sticky" by James Henry & The Olympics, "David's Mood" by Dave Lewis, "Mr Meadowlands" by The Chessmen, "Hitch Hiking Home" by Johnny & The Velvetones, "Purple Peanuts" by The Beachcombers, "Black Cat" by The Checkers, "Excelsior" by The Adventurers, "Driving Home" by Doug Robertson & The Good Guys, and "Banzai Pipeline" by Danny & The Seniors.

Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2009. Used ... $9.99
A great setting for the saxophone sound of Seamus Blake – a cool little group that features some angular guitar lines from Lage Lund, which make for a surprisingly great match for Blake's tones on tenor and soprano sax! Other players include David Kikoski on piano, Matt Chohesy on bass, and Bill Stewart on drums – and the group's got a slightly unusual groove, one that's hard to describe – kind of a back/fort sort of swing that really makes for a fresh rhythmic approach, one that unlocks some nice energy in Blake's horn. Most tracks are originals, and titles include "A Beleza Que Vem", "Bellweather", "The Song That Lives Inside", "Minor Celebrity", and "Subterfuge". CD

Brothers By ChoiceBrothers By Choice (She Puts The Ease Back Into Easy) (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
ALA/KTI (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the best funky soul albums to come from the LA scene of the 70s – a relatively obscure indie set, but one that's shone brightly for years, thanks to attention from a host of global DJs! The style here is partly clubby, partly funk – with lots of jazzy touches that come from the super-tight instrumentation on the record – played by a lineup that includes some excellent guitar from the great David T Walker! Vocals are often balanced equally with instrumental passages – which themselves sometimes hit this excellent vibe that feels like a funky 70s soundtrack. Titles include the killer "She Puts The Ease Back Into Easy" – served up in two great parts – plus "Take A Little More", "Girl I Need You Too", "Baby You Really Got Me Going", and "Young Single & Free". CD features three bonus tracks – "Oh Darlin", "How Much I Feel", and "Why Can't You Make Up Your Mind". CD

Epic (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... About November 29, 2017
A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar Brashear on trumpet, George Duke on keyboards, David T Walker on guitar, and even Dorothy Ashby on harp! Chancler sings lead vocals on most cuts – but he's also joined by Virginia Ayers and Leo Mille on some cuts too – making for a really well-rounded sound that's easily one of the best jazz-into-soul sessions like this from the 70s – almost topping the more famous work from folks like Lenny White or Mtume! Titles include "Don't Leave Me Now Stay With Me", "Feeling", "This Time", "Looking Glass", and the extended "Suite Chocolate". CD

Lol CoxhillEar Of The Beholder (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dandelion/Radiation, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the weirdest, most wonderful albums ever cut by saxophonist Lol Coxhill – way more than just improvised jazz, and exactly the best sort of a record to show his connection to the larger British music scene! The feel here is a bit like the albums that Coxhill recorded with Steve Miller for Virgin, but even more offbeat – a blend of solo saxophone lines, electronic experimentation, processing and effects, and other added instrumentation. Coxhill speaks a bit on the set, almost in a Ivor Cutler sort of way – and he gets a bit of help from David Bedford, Jasper Van'Thof, and Mike Oldfield. Some tracks are short and more "sound" oriented, others are longer, and more free jazz sounding, but all are pretty darn wonderful – and titles include "Rasa Moods", "Feedback", "Two Little Pigeons", "Hungerford", "The Rhythmic Hooter", and "A Series Of Superbly Played Mellotron Codas".

De La SoulAnd The Anonymous Nobody (with download) ... LP
AOI, 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 28.99
A major later career creative win for De La Soul – a mind-bogglingly diverse, frequently brilliant record that manages to rival their best early work in stylistic breadth! This one's an epic – a 17 track, nearly 70 minute opus that finds De La working with an eclectic group of collaborators on a project that finds them hinting at past glories – be it the laidback jazzy production of the immediate post-"D.A.I.S.Y Age" to their impressive, genre-defying collaborations with the Gorillaz and others – but it's very much a fresh effort with nary a whiff of nostalgia. It's a grower, too – a record you'll need to listen to a bunch of times to really get to the heart of it – and in a post-millennium age of instant gratification, you REALLY gotta hand it to Pos, Dave and Mase for defiantly making a true blue L(ong)P(layer) Titles include "Genesis" with Jill Scott, "Royalty Capes", "Nosed Up", "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, "Memory Of...(US)" with Estelle & Pete Rock, "Snoopies" with David Byrne, "Greyhounds" with Usher, "Drawn" with Little Dragon, "Whoodeeni" with 2Chainz, "Here In After" with Damon Albarn and more.

Bernard EbbinghousePrudence & The Pill ... LP
20th Century, 1968. Sealed ... $14.99
A strange little film from the late 60s – a brit comedy starring Deborah Kerr and David Niven, in kind of a tender and silly comedy about the early years of birth control. About half the soundtrack's kind of orchestral and romantic (surprisingly), but the other half is nice and groovy – with a strong jazz approach handled by a number of British players, like baritone saxophonist Ronnie Ross, organist Roger Coulam, and tenor player Danny Moss. The Mike Sammes Singers sing "Too Soon To Tell", and they're probably also the wordless vocal chorus on the nice jaunty number "The Pill", a groovy little tune that also has some electric harpischord! Other groovy tracks include "Walk With Grace", "For Geraldine", "The Hired Help", "Indoor Outdoor Girl", and "The Morning After". LP, Vinyl record album

Funk IncHangin' Out/Superfunk ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Two excellent albums from Funk Inc on one CD! Superfunk is one of the band's greatest albums – and a really tight batch of funky tunes given some stellar production by David Axelrod! The band's a bit tighter than on earlier releases – leaving behind the hard jazz-jam sound for a more together soul-oriented one, heard to best effect on the album's enduring classic, "Goodbye, So Long" – a rolling funky tune that features vocals on the chorus, and an unbelievably catchy instrumental sound that you might recognize instantly from its use as a sample over the years. The rest of the record's just as great – and the band runs through The Meters' classic "Message From The Meters", Barry White's funky "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Babe", and a great rendition of the electric jazz classic "The Hill Where The Lord Hides". Hangin Out features their organ-heavy sound vamping away on some really tight groovers – not as break-heavy as some of the tracks on their first album, but with some excellent modal riffing in a sweet jazz dance mode. The big cuts include "Smokin' At Tiffany's" and "Dirty Red", both groove classics that have a strong Prestige jazz funk sound. Other cuts include a sweet cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love", plus the tracks "We Can Be Friends" and "I'll Be Around". CD
