Kenny RankinInside Kenny Rankin ... CD
Little David/Atlantic, 1975. Used ... $8.99
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".

David AkeBridges ... CD
Posi tone, 2013. Used ... $7.99
A really well-titled little record – as the sound here is quite unique, and often has the musicians creating these little bridges between each other's space! David Ake wrote all the tunes, and put them together with this angular, blocky sort of feel – lots of sound shapes at the core, which are then whipped into more rhythmic passages by the group – and bridged by some creative work on the front end – a horn section that includes Ralph Alessi on trumpet, Ravi Coltrane on tenor, and Peter Epstein on alto! The rhythm pulsates in ways that provide just the right landscape for the whole thing to hold together – thanks to work from Scott Colley on bass and Mark Ferber on drums – and titles include "Sonomads", "Story Table", "We Do", "Year In Review", and "Open/Balance".

Burt Bacharach/Hal DavidPromises, Promises ... CD
Varese, 1968. Used ... $1.99
Burt Bacharach and Hal David's sole entry into the musical genre – a weird little musical that's based on the film The Apartment! The record's a lot less "Broadway" than you might think – and often handled with the same sly syncopated style of Bacharach's regular pop work – particularly that of the later A&M years. And even if you're not the sort to go for the usual sort of musical, this one's filled with some really great little tunes that stand with some of Burt's best later work – and which are almost even more interesting, given some of the themes that get explored! Musical direction is by Harold Wheeler, and Jerry Orbach's one of the key vocalists of the set! Titles include "Upstairs", "Knowing When To Leave", "She Likes Basketball", "Half As Big As Life", "Our Little Secret", "Christmas Day", "Grapes Of Roth", and "Wanting Things". CD

David BowieNo Plan EP ... CD
Columbia, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
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

David BowieYoung Americans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
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

Eddie Harris/David NewmanI Need Some Money/Bigger & Better ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Late 60s/1975. Used ... $4.99
2 great albums of soul jazz from Atlantic! Eddie Harris' I Need Some Money is a great little funk album that shouldn't work so well, but does nicely, thanks to a unique approach to the groove. The album kicks off with the catchy vocal number "I Need Some Money", which features a chugging Varitone groove in the background. Other cuts mix up funk and soul, and add in touches of the "electric rhythm machine", which was heard on a few earlier Harris albums for Atlantic. Very strange, but strangely nice – and with the cuts "Bumpin", "Get On Down", "Carnival", "That's It", and "Time To Do Your Thing". David Newman's Bigger & Better is more of a straight soul jazz outing – but the groove's still pretty nice, and it features some nice numbers like "The Thirteenth Floor", "Ain't That Good News", and "For Sylvia".

David Earle JohnsonTime Is Free ... LP
Vanguard, 1977. Very Good ... $7.99
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 NewmanBigger & Better/Many Facets Of David Newman ... CD
Atlantic, 1968/1969. Used ... $7.99
2 incredible records by David Newman – back to back as a single CD set! Bigger & Better is one of the best David Newman albums for Atlantic from the 60s – and one that breaks past the R&B-influenced formula of earlier albums! This one features some great arrangements by William Fischer, the cool wild-card arranger who was to late 60s Atlantic what David Axelrod was to Capitol at the same time. Fischer's touch isn't exactly funky – but it's certainly far-reaching, as he sets up David's funky tenor and flute in some very hip arrangements that mix together horns, strings, and soul production, in a mode that provides some of the best backings that Newman's ever had to solo over – a favor he returns admirably in his playing on the album! Includes the cool psychedelic number "The Thirteenth Floor", Eddie Harris-ish readings of "And I Love Her" and "Yesterday", and versions of Sam Cooke's "Ain't That Good News" and "A Change Is Gonna Come". Many Facets is equally brilliant – and follows in a similar mode. 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! 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.

EMI, 1983. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Conte CandoliLittle Band Big Jazz ... LP
Crown, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record – and the kind of rare LA bop session that got totally lost because it was never packaged properly! This obscure set was issued by the Crown label under a number of names – both the Conte Candoli All Stars and Vince Guaraldi – and the group includes Conte Candoli, Buddy Collette, Vince Guaraldi, Leroy Vinnegar, and Stan Levey – all playing with a fantastically tight and incredibly soulful bop groove, of the sort you always hear them credited for, but which you can never find on any of their snoozy more famous records. Vince Guaraldi plays some incredibly soulful piano, in a manner that's very different than his Fantasy recordings – and he's playing here with a killer group of LA players who deliver some of their finest recorded work! Trust us, the session's a gem – and it's one of those you can put on and surprise your friends, and yourself! Tracks include "Muggin The Minor", "Mambo Diane", "Macedonia", and "Little David".

Mercury, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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 RaskinToo Late Blues ... LP
Doxy, 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest jazzy soundtracks of the early 60s! David Raksin's other great film work has jazz elements, too, but he goes all in on Two Late Blues. It has these incredible small combo cues – with little more than piano, drums, bass and horns – but they still manage to deliver the grand emotional sweep of larger scale scores. The film is one of just a couple of Hollywood productions directed by indie icon John Cassavetes early in his career – about a jazz player named "Ghost" – who's played by Bobby Darin of all people! Being a Hollywood project, the film doesn't get a lot of mentions alongside Cassavetes's indie triumphs, but its gritty portrayal of life in the jazz world was revolutionary for a major film studio at the time. It's got a killer soundtrack to show for it! Titles include "Theme From Too Late Blues (A Song After Sundown)", "Look Inward, Angel", "Ghost Blows Test", "Blues For Tomorrow", "Like Lasagna", "Cuidad De Mexico", "Wither Thou, Ghost!", "Wife's Other John", "Finale – The Rimshot Heard 'Round The World" and more. Lost of bonus tracks on this great Kritzerland edition – including "Danzon", "Some Other Time", "Sambalero", "Wife's Other John (Extended Version)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David SchnitterInvitation ... LP
Muse, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really great set from the young David Schnitter – already a tremendous voice on the tenor sax, as you'll hear in this tasty little session! The format here is open and flowing – long tunes that bubble with the best sense of soul jazz that Muse had to offer, played by a quartet that features Mickey Tucker on piano, James Leary on bass, and Eddie Marshall on drums – all stretching out warmly with Schnitter! At times, Dave's got a quality that's a bit like Wayne Shorter on his early Blue Notes – and at others, there's a real Stitt-like sound in effect – but not in a way that's hokey or copycat. Even familiar numbers sound great in the grasp of Schnitter's biting reed – and titles include "Invitation", "Blue Monk", "Body & Soul", "Donna Lee", and "Fat Face Fenner's Saloon".

Joe Beck/Dave SanbornBeck & Sanborn (aka Beck) ... LP
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Later pressing of a great Kudu set from guitarist Joe Beck – a player who's sounding a lot tighter here than some of his odd psychedelic experiments of the 60s – but still pretty darn great overall! The style is smooth, as you'd expect from Kudu, but Joe's still got plenty of edges in his guitar to stand out nicely – little riffs and rasps that crackle with a good sense of electricity amidst larger arrangements from Don Sebesky. The album also features some great alto from David Sanborn, and keyboards from Don Grolnick – on titles that include "Star Fire", "Cactus", "Texas Ann", "Brothers & Others", and "Red Eye".

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

✨✧ Donald ByrdEthiopian Knights ... CD
Blue Note, 1972. Used ... $6.99
Sweet electric funk – in a very trippy style! Before Donald Byrd hooked up with Larry Mizell and started recording his smooth fusion grooves of the mid 70's, he recorded this gem – kind of a "lost" album that has Donald working in an open-ended electric sound – one that's clearly inspired by the experiments of Miles Davis, but which has a generally funkier feel overall! The tracks are very long – with lots of spiralling keyboard and trumpet solos – and the hip players on the set include Bobby Hutcherson, David T Walker, Wilton Felder, and Harold Land. We love the tracks on this set – especially "The Emperor" and "The Little Rasti", which are both over 15 minutes long, and have a haunting spacey sound that's a departure from Donald's usual work!

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". LP, Vinyl record album
