Lonnie Liston SmithExotic Mysteries ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About November 29, 2017
One of the fullest-sounding albums ever cut by Lonnie Liston Smith – but one of the greatest albums too! The set has Smith really taking off a bit more than on his work for RCA or Flying Dutchman – hitting some fuller sounds in the studio, thanks to backings arranged by Berg DeCoteaux, who's clearly trying to push Lonnie's groove a bit more towards a soul fusion audience of the time, yet always without losing any of the righteous energy that makes the music so great. There's a wonderful blend of acoustic and electric keyboards on the set – wrapped up in bits of strings, and propelled strongly to the skies with some great rhythms that include bass work from a young Marcus Miller, who also wrote some of the tracks on the set. Vocals aren't often in the lead – usually just sung by a chorus, if at all – and some of the best numbers here have a laidback groove that's totally wonderful – nice and mellow, with lots of room for the keys! Tracks include "Quiet Moments", "Space Princess", "Night Flower", "Mystical Dreamer", "Magical Journey", "Singing For Love", and "Exotic Mysteries". CD

Lonnie Liston SmithLove Is The Answer ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... About November 29, 2017
Magical work from Lonnie Liston Smith – one of those players who actually seemed to get better the more he worked on major labels! The album's a really wonderful blend of mellow jazz and soulfully spiritual themes – at one level inspired by Roy Ayers-styled crossover material, but at another still very much in the righteous camp of some of Lonnie's earlier records. A few tracks have vocals, but others step along in a sweet and smooth instrumental mode that mixes up acoustic piano and keyboards very nicely! Titles include "In The Park", "Speak About It", "Love Is The Answer", "On The Real Side", "Give Peace A Chance", and "The Enchantress". CD

✨✧ Lonnie Liston SmithReflections Of A Golden Dream ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
Lonnie Liston Smith grooves it hard here with his Cosmic Echoes group – mixing in a stronger dose of soul than ever before, yet still giving tracks a righteous feel overall! The approach here is a bit like that of Roy Ayers work from the 70s – still jazzy at its core and conception, but often featuring vocals to deliver a wider message for the tunes – plus some nicely snapping rhythms that are enough to get a fe cuts good play on the dancefloor! The record's still got plenty of great mellow tracks too, though – the kind of floating spacey numbers that Smith virtually invented during the 70s, and which stand here as a more strongly jazz-voiced contrast to some of the soul tunes in the set. Donald Smith and Dave Hubbard are still working here with Lonnie to give the work a really solid sound, and tracks include groovers like "Get Down Everybody", "Peace & Love", and "Beautiful Woman" – mixed with spacier fusion numbers like "Quiet Dawn", "Golden Dreams", and "Goddess Of Love".

Lonnie Liston SmithSong For The Children ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... About November 29, 2017
Wonderfully warm work from the late 70s years of Lonnie Liston Smith – material from his key stretch a Columbia Records, a time when he'd really learned to tighten up his groove a bit from earlier years, yet still keep all the deeper soul intact! The production here is slightly polished, but never too much so – done by Lonnie with help from Bert DeCoteaux, who's still clearly aiming the record at the soul side of the spectrum – using Lonnie's cosmic blend of keyboards, rhythms, and vocals just the right way – and hitting some sounds that are a bit more righteous than other Columbia Records fusion acts of the time. Some cuts feature lead vocals by James Robinson – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Dave Hubbard and guitar by Ronnie Miller. The album kicks off with the soul jazz number "A Song For The Children", and other tracks include "Aquarian Cycle", "Street Festival", "Gift Of Love", and "Fruit Music". CD

Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderfully warm work from the late 70s years of Lonnie Liston Smith – material from his key stretch a Columbia Records, a time when he'd really learned to tighten up his groove a bit from earlier years, yet still keep all the deeper soul intact! The set kicks off with Song For The Children from 1979 – a set done by Lonnie with help from Bert DeCoteaux, who's still clearly aiming the record at the soul side of the spectrum – using Lonnie's cosmic blend of keyboards, rhythms, and vocals just the right way – and hitting some sounds that are a bit more righteous than other Columbia Records fusion acts of the time.

The album kicks off with the soul jazz number "A Song For The Children", and other tracks include "Aquarian Cycle", "Street Festival", "Gift Of Love", and "Midsummer Magic". (Note that the reissue leaves off the track "Fruit Music", due to space restrictions.) Exotic Mysteries is one of the fullest-sounding albums ever cut by Lonnie Liston Smith – but one of the greatest albums too!

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesExpansions ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA, 1975. Used ... $3.99
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for the migration of the cosmic jazz sound onto the dancefloor – a tune that's as funky as it is righteous – but other cuts on the album slow down the pace a bit too, and show off the mellower, more introspectively spiritual side that's always made Lonnie way more than just a funky jazz artist. Easily the best place to start in the all-great Lonnie Liston Smith catalog – and featuring tracks that include "Expansions", "Summer Days", "Desert Nights", "Shadows", "My Love", "Peace", and "Voodoo Woman".

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesVisions Of A New World ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA, 1975. Used ... $6.99
Lonnie Liston Smith is really tightening up his groove on this one – bringing a bit more funk into the mix, and creating that amazingly sweet glide in his keyboard sound! The record's still steeped in the righteous influences of years past, but it brings the message out to a bigger audience – letting soul flow into the jazz-based tunes in the same way that Norman Connors was doing at the time – and creating the same sort of warm glow through a mix of earthy percussion and electric keys. Vocals on most numbers are by Donald Smith, who has a great approach that has the depth of Leon Thomas but the warm focus of Michael Henderson – and he's a perfect fit for Lonnie's well-crafted tunes on the set! Titles include the nicely breaking "Devika", plus "A Chance For Peace", "Colors of The Rainbow", "Visions Of A New World", and the killer mellow track "Summer Nights", a very warm electric piano cut, with a nice sort of "Summer Madness" feel!

Gato BarbieriBolivia ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Soaring, searing sounds from the young Gato Barbieri – one of his classic albums for the Flying Dutchman label, and very much in the vein of his first few for Impulse Records! The Latin element isn't as strongly stated in the music as you might guess from the title, but the inspiration is definitely there – although more subtle than on Gato's Latin America series for the other label – and the tunes are a wonderful blend of soulful soloing, modal grooves, and unbridled emotion! Lonnie Liston Smith is playing piano on most cuts, and he's a perfect blend for Barbieri's horn – giving it the same sort of soulful base as in his classic recordings with Pharoah Sanders – and pushing the tracks with a pulsating modal undercurrent that keeps things moving throughout! Titles include "Merceditas", "Eclypse/Michellina", "Bolivia", and "Vidala Triste". CD

Potter & Tillman with Carmen LundySpace Rapture ... LP
High Jazz (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A wonderful bit of spacey fusion from the team of David Tillman and Andrew Potter – the kind of record we'd rank up there with classic work by Bobby Lyle or Lonnie Liston Smith! The set was recorded in the early 80s, and issued in a very small pressing at the time – but it's got a full-on sound that's created through swirling keyboards, funky drums, and a really spacious approach to the groove that's filled with spirit and soul. About half the tracks are instrumentals, take in a really freewheeling keyboard-driven style – and the other half feature vocals, cast out in a really warm and spiritual sort of way. Carmen Lundy makes a stunning appearance on an early version of her track "Time Is Love" – done here as a stripped-down piano/vocal jam that's even better than the more famous version! Other tracks include "It Must Be ESP", "Out West", "Love Is How", "Space Rapture", and "Sing A Simple Song Of Praise". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie RussSee The Light ... LP
Monument/Soul Brother (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... About November 17, 2017
A beautiful album of spacey jazz funk! Eddie Russ was a 70s keyboard genius – right up there with Lonnie Liston Smith and Herbie Hancock in our book, although he never reached the fame of either of those players. This album's one of Eddie's best – and it's got a smoothly produced soul jazz sound that's almost a takeoff on the style of Smith's excellent records for Flying Dutchman – but a bit cooler overall, and with a great feel that links back to Russ' years in the Detroit scene. Tracks are uptempo and jazzy, with a strongly soulful vibe that features lots of electric keyboard work over the top of fast dancing rhythms. A few cuts have sweet female soul backup vocals, and additional instrumentation includes trumpet, sax, and guitar. Tracks include "Zaius", "Salem Avenue", "Poko Nose", and "See The Light".

Eddie RussTake A Look At Yourself ... LP
Monument/Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... About November 17, 2017
A funky fusion classic from keyboardist Eddie Russ – and quite possibly his most fully developed album ever! Eddie's working here at a level that's right up there with Weldon Irvine, Lonnie Liston Smith, and Bobby Lyle – a wonderful fusion of jazz and soul that's carried off perfectly throughout the entire set. The backings are sublime – rich and full, but never sleepy – and with a strength that really moves past even Eddie's great work on other albums. The keyboards soar over the top of the tunes mightily – supported by some great horn parts, and just a bit of chorus vocals on a few cuts. Eddie's playing Arp, electric piano, and a bit of un-named synth on the set – and titles include "I Want To Be Somebody", "Tea Leaves", "Lay Back", "Feelin Fine", and a version of "Don't Ask My Neighbors".

✨✧ Pharoah SandersIzipho Zam (My Gifts) ... LP
Strata East/Everland (Austria), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A rare non-Impulse Records album from the early days of Pharoah Sanders – but a set that ranks right up there with his classics for that legendary label! The album's one of the classics in Strata East's Dolphy Series – and it's a uniquely collaborative session from 1969, one that has Sanders working with a largeish group that includes Sonny Fortune on alto sax, Sonny Sharrock on guitar, Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Leon Thomas on vocals, and Cecil McBee on bass – all coming together with a freely exploratory sort of energy, one that's a bit like some of Archie Shepp's most righteous sides from the same time. Sanders' tenor still dominates most numbers, but not as much as on some of the Impulse sides – and there's a nicely relaxed and personal feel to the whole album. The album features 3 long tracks – "Prince Of Peace", which has Leon Thomas doing his "Creator Has A Master Plan" thing, and the cuts "Balance" and "Izipho Zam", the latter of which jams for a full 28 minutes!

Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! CD

Huey Simmons (aka Sonny Simmons)Burning Spirits ... LP
Contemporary, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99
A classic bit of avant garde work from the west coast scene of the late 60s – one of a small number of important "out" records from that part of the country at the time, standing in bold contrast to work from the more-vocal New York scene! The set was put together by Huey "Sonny" Simmons – and has a loosely collective feel that's almost spiritual, but which has a lot more edges than the usual soul jazz session of its type. Simmons is clearly inspired by the free work of the ESP crowd, but he also takes that sound in a whole new direction – working with a group that includes his frequent collaborator, trumpeter Barbara Donald, plus Cecil McBee, Lonnie Liston Smith, Clifford Jarvis, and Richard Davis. All titles are long, and tracks include "New Newk", "E=MC2", "Healing Rays", "Burning Spirits", and "Things & Beings". LP, Vinyl record album

Funky fusion in a runaway spaceship – the second album by Larry Young's cosmic heavy Fuel ensemble! The album's a perfect batch of jazzy keyboard grooves in a tradition that includes Lonnie Liston Smith, Johnny Hammond, and Charles Earland during his Mercury years – with Larry on moog, organ, Hammond B-3, Fender Rhodes, and other cool keyboards – grooving with a sound that ranges from fast and choppy to sweet and spacious. Julius Brockington also plays a lot of funky keys on the set next to Larry, and although a few tracks have vocals, the real focus here is on the instrumentation. Titles include "Startripper", "Message From Mars", "Moonwalk", "Sticky Wicket", and "Flytime". His last album, and a nice bit of far-reaching funk! CD

Jazzy soul & straight up hip hop from Guru's pioneering Jazzmatazz series – cuts culled from Volumes 1-3 – the Virgin years! Not only did Guru do an admirable job of inspiring a host of jazz legends and contemporary players to get involved, Jazzmatazz also proved to be an excellent platform for singers in the emerging neo soul scene of the 90s – from Lonnie Liston Smith, Ramsey Lewis, Branford Marsalis, Donald Byrd and many more from the jazz world, to Mica Paris, Angie Stone, Kelis, N'Dea Davenport and others on the soul side – plus the Roots and Bahamadia representing hip hop. We always appreciated Guru's efforts with his Jazzmatazz – and it's pretty sweet that it has this lasting positive influence! 18 tracks in all: "No Time To Play" feat Ronnie Jordan & D Cee Lee, "Trust Me" feat N'Dea Davenport, "Slicker Than Most" feat Gary Barnacle, "Down The Backstreets" feat Lonnie Liston Smith, "Sights In The City" feat Courtney Pine & Carleen Anderson, "Loungin'" feat Donald Byrd, "Watch What You Say" feat Chaka Khan & Bradford Marsalis, "Looking Through Darkness" feat Mica Paris, "Choices" feat N'Dea Davenport & Bobbi Humphrey, "Supa Love" feat Kelis and more.

One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Dave Hubbard – a player who's probably best known for his soaring work with Lonnie Liston Smith in the 70s – but who steps out here with a very fresh voice of his own! At some level, the album's an update of the soul jazz style that Prestige Records used in the 60s – but there's also moments that show the larger spiritual currents that Hubbard explored with Smith – especially as the group has a way of taking familiar instrumentation and working it into some very fresh modes and rhythms. In addition to Dave on tenor, the album also features Albert Dailey on electric piano, Jimmy Rowser on bass, Harold White on drums, and the great Buck Clarke on congas – which really helps give the rhythms an added kick. Dave's tone is amazing – raw, but fluid at the same time – and titles are almost all originals by Hubbard and Dailey – and include "Booga Bop", "Patience", "Dailey Bread", and "BC". CD

✨✧ Abdul Rahim Ibrahim (Doug Carn)Al Rahman! Cry Of The Floridian Tropic Son ... CD
Tablichi/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost treasure from keyboardist Doug Carn – an album recorded after his 70s classics for the Black Jazz label, at a time when he'd changed his name to Abdul Rahim Ibrahim! As you might guess from that moniker, and the cover of the set, the album's got a pretty spiritual bent overall – one that extends past Doug's work for the Black Jazz label, but which is still pretty upbeat and soulful as well. Most tracks have vocals, with Carn singing in a surprisingly great style that almost makes the records feel like Lonnie Liston Smith gems on Flying Dutchman – and a few tracks almost have a trace of Gary Bartz funk – a bit of angles in the grooves, especially on numbers that have Doug trading vocals back and forth with female singer Kweili. Other instrumentation includes tenor sax from George Harper, electric guitar, and lots of percussion – and the jazz component of the record is sometimes inflected with some Eastern leanings, but mostly still soars out in the highly soulful style you'd expect from Carn's earlier work! Titles include "Balancez Calinda", "Tropic Sons", "Al Rahman", "The Watcher", "Eroniffa's Brown Band", "Suratal Ihklas", and "Casbah". CD

Some cuts are more big band oriented, but the best ones are nice and funky. Titles include "Skull Session", "125th And 7th Ave", "Flight For Freedom", "Baja Bossa", and "Dumpy Mama". CD

As with some of Sanders' other Impulse albums of the period, the record only features two long songs – both of them great, and both of them balanced between more modal moments, and freer flights of jazz expression. Bartz and Shaw are obviously well suited for both of these sides of the spectrum – as are the other players, who include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Nathaniel Bettis and Anthony Wiles play additional percussion – as do some of the other members of the group from time to time. Both tracks build with a stretched-out, organic quality – and titles include "Summun Bukmun Umyun" and "Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord". LP, Vinyl record album
