Modern Jazz Ensemble (John Lewis)Little David's Fugue ... LP
Verve, 1955. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A better-than-usual set of third stream jazz by John Lewis – quite possibly because it was recorded a bit earlier than the rest! As with similar sessions on Columbia and Atlantic, this one has Lewis working with Gunther Schuller on tracks for a larger group that seek to bridge the gap between jazz and more "serious" music – almost an experiment in modern classical music, but a bit less constricted, and with plenty of room for the soloists to liven up the material. Players include JJ Johnson, Stan Getz, Tony Scott, and Lucky Thompson – who all get in some nice moments on the record – and titles include "Sun Dance", "Midsommer", "The Queen's Fancy", "Little David's Fugue", and "Django". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Lewis & Hank JonesEvening With Two Grand Pianos ... CD
Little David/Collectables, 1979. Used ... 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". CD

✨✧ Nat AdderleyHummin' ... CD
Little David/Collectables, 1976. Used ... $6.99
A really brilliant little record from Nat Adderley – one that shows him shaking off the groove gotten from brother Cannonball, and finding some great space all on his own! The setting here is tight and funky – at a level that's a bit more arranged than a small combo soul jazz session, but which still has plenty of sharp edges and bold notes! The groove's a bit like Kudu Records from the time, but less electric overall – and Nat's cornet is featured in a hip combo with John Stubblefield on reeds, Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano and keyboards, and Buddy Williams on drums. There's plenty of great funky riffing in the set, but also some wonderfully laidback grooves that really sparkle with electric piano from Gumbs – and titles include a surprisingly wonderful version of "MASH", plus "Hummin", "Midnight Over Memphis", "The Traveler", "Listen To The Rain", and the Latin-tinged "Amor Sonador".

David AkeHumanities ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Really lovely work from pianist David Ake, wonderfully paired here with trumpeter Ralph Alessi – whose sparkling tones really seem to illuminate all the musical ideas that Ake brings to the set! The tunes are almost all original, and these great little paintings in sound and tone – with interplay between David's piano and the guitar of Ben Monder, sometimes set to elliptical rhythms from Drew Gress on bass and Mark Ferber on drums. Alessi provides some nice forward energy at points, and even hits some grittier tones at others – and throughout, the whole album's got a sense of surprise and tonal interplay. Titles include "Rabble Rouser", "Walter Cronkite", "Humanities", "Hoofer", "Groundwork", "You May Have Already Won", and "Drinking Song". CD

David BowieNew Career In A New Town – 1977 to 1982 (11CD box set) ... CD
Parlophone, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 11CD ... $138.99 149.98
Amazing music from one of our most-treasured stretches of David Bowie's career – that creatively-fertile time when he escaped to West Berlin, hid from the mainstream, and made some groundbreaking records with Brian Eno – then returned to the limelight to remind us all that he was still a hell of a force to be reckoned with! The set includes everything post-Thin White Duke, and pre-Let's Dance – a run of music that's still shaping new sounds on this planet all these many years later. The set begins with Low – the mix of experimental instrumentals and subtle vocal tracks that was a complete change from Ziggy Stardust – and follows with Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters & Super Creeps – all albums that reintroduce some sense of song and lyrical interplay, but at a level that clearly indicates how important Bowie was to the generation of post-punk and new wave as his earlier work was to psych, prog, and glam! But the package isn't just a standard collection of albums – because along with those four studio records, it also features the live album Stage, presented here in two different full mixes – plus a new 2017 mix of Lodger, which really increases the edge. There's also a special Heroes EP, with all the different language versions of the song – and a very cool Re:Call 3 album – which features all the singles that were issued at the time, plus other rare material – and Bowie's very unique take on Bertolt Brecht's Baal. Titles on this album include "Alabama Song", "Crystal Japan", "Under Pressure", "Remembering Marie A", "The Drowned Girl", "The Dirty Song", "Cat People", and even his "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" duet with Bing Crosby. As with other entries in this complete Bowie series, the presentation is wonderful – album sleeve replicas, great packaging, and lots of notes – kind of a treasure, even if you already own some of the records!

David BowieYoung Americans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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

Jerry Goldsmith/David ShireMorituri/Raid On Entebbe ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1965/1976. Used ... $18.99
2 war soundtracks – back to back on one CD! Morituri is a little remembered mid 60s film that starred Marlon Brando and Yul Brynner – and which features a dramatic score by Jerry Goldsmith, filled with tense twists and turns, conducted by Lionel Newman. Raid On Entebbe hails from 10 years later, and features Charles Bronson in a hijacking thriller – set to a score by David Shire, then a great talent for such a film! Morituri dominates the CD, with 18 tracks in all – followed by 4 from Entebbe – and titles include "Traffic Jam", "Assignment In Macao", "Boat Drill", "A Lost Cause", "The Hijacking", "The Raid", "The Return", and "The Prisoners".

David GrubbsNow That The Audience Is Assembled ... Book
Duke University Press, 2018. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
A beautiful book-length prose poem from David Grubbs – an artist that some know as a musician, some as a singer, and some as a writer for his previous essential volume on improvised music! The book is very narrative – and tells this dream-like story of a musician faced with the need to figure out and assemble an instrument in front of a crowd of waiting listeners – who themselves get roped into the action as the story moves on – all in a way that almost reminds us of the Little Nemo In Slumberland work from Windsor MacKay! The writing is wonderful – and balances moments of action with passages of reflection – all while examining the relationship between musician and listener, in a way that's as eminently readable as it is theoretical – and is maybe a secret look at the nightmares that all performers must get as the years go by. The wit of Grubbs' lyrics come through beautifully in the writing – and like the artist himself, the book is as down to earth as it is filled with new ideas and pathways for continuous creative activity! 142 pages, softcover.

Gladys Knight & The PipsLittle Knight Music ... LP
SOUL, 1975. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Gladys Knight's last album for Motown subsidiary SOUL – a collection of work from a variety of different sessions, put together to compete with her shift to Buddah Records in the mid 70s! The set features a range of numbers, often in a mode that's a bit more uptempo and righteous than some of the mellower Gladys Knight work that was dominating her hits at the time – almost as if they'd been holding back on this stuff, to let her develop more of a southern soul ballad identity. Arrangements are by Paul Riser, David Van DePitte, and Robert White – and often show a bit of the growing 70s dancefloor sensibility creeping into Motown during the time. Gladys' vocals are still plenty real soul – soaring out over the tracks – and titles include "In The Middle Of The Road", "Come Together", "All I Need Is A Miracle", "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", and "Can You Give Me Love With A Guarantee".

✨✧ David NewmanMany Facets Of David Newman ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
One of David's smooth soul albums for Mercury, with jazzy production by Wayne Henderson that's in line with the best work he was doing at the time. David's got a strange voice that's got the depth of a baritone, but the sweetness of a tenor. It's a little tough to get used to at first, but the arrangements are sparkling, and match his style very well. Tracks include "Love So Strong", "Ms.", "Friends & Strangers", "Munchies", and "Let's Make Happiness". LP, Vinyl record album

David RuffinMe And Rock & Roll Are Here To Stay ... LP
Motown, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A strange title, but a great little record – 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". LP, Vinyl record album

David YoungDavid Young ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
David Young may not be the biggest name in the jazz history books, but we'll always remember him fondly for this great little album on Mainstream – a set that's maybe one of the more spiritual session on the label in the early 70s! Young plays tenor, and he's got a group that's all-hip, all the way through – with Virgil Jones on trumpet, Sonny Fortune on baritone and flute, Harold Mabern on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums! There's definitely currents here that echo some of the work that Fortune and Mabern would soon do on Strata East – as the tunes have an offbeat, soulful vibe – partly lyrical, partly swinging – but also with lots of Young's own voice in the mix, too. The Mainstream Records production brings out some of the warmer currents in the music – and titles include "Pisces On The Cusp", "For You With Love", "Down Yonder", "Joe Splivingates", "Friday The Fourteenth" and "Animated Suspension".

Sony, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Mid 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... 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 BowieLet's Dance (long, short)/Cat People (Putting Out Fire) ... 12-inch
EMI, 1983. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A great little comeback moment from David Bowie – with a great cut from a soundtrack on the flip! "Let's Dance" really got Bowie back on top in the early 80s – thanks to some production help from Nile Rogers, who made the tune groove perfectly for the dancefloors. But we're even more partial to "Cat People" – a great little tune from the remake of that film form the early 80s – a dark number that swells nicely on the chorus! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ David BowieNo Plan EP ... CD
Columbia, 2017. New Copy ... 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

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 Hazeltine plays the music of Horace Silver – in a sweet little set that seems to swing even more than his usual work! The tunes here are all great numbers composed by Silver – mostly from his Blue Note days – and Hazeltine's lyrical approach echoes some of Horace's inspiration, but also takes off in these different ways too – almost a blockier interpretation of the tunes, which hits a great groove alongside the bass of Peter Washington and drums of Louis Hayes – the latter of whom is obviously well-tuned to a Silver groove! Titles include "Back Beat", "Peace", "Senor Blues", "Sayonara Blues", "Silver Serenade", "Horace Scope", "Song For My Father", and "Nica's Dream". CD

Motown, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
David Ruffin teams with Van McCoy for this sweet little set – and the result is a great batch of grooves that swell with Ruffin's soulful sound of the 70s, but sway with the warm McCoy dancefloor modes of the time! Van wrote nearly all the tracks in the set – and handled all arrangements and production – but the record's far less disco than you'd guess, thanks to cracklingly earnest vocals from Ruffin, who's still given plenty of space to shine center stage on the record. The balance is essential, and is carried off here in a manner similar to the best Philly soul albums of its type. Titles include "First Round Knockout", "On & Off", "Good Good Times", "Ready Willing & Able", "Everything's Coming Up Love", "Discover Me", "Until We Said Goodbye", and "Let's Get Into Something".

Warner, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the backings strongly – blowing some of his best notes with surprisingly little flourish, and crafting a soulful lead that's supported by work from Hiram Bullock on guitar, Rosalinda De Leon on keyboards, and Victor Lewis on drums. There's a bit of vocals on the album – courtesy of Patti Austin, Lain Groves, Phoebe Snow, and Paul Simon – and titles include "Indio", "Smile", "Concrete Boogie", "Mamacita", and "7th Ave".
