✨✧ VariousDroppin' Science – The Best Of Cold Chillin' (Compiled By Marley Marl) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used 3LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Totally essential! The Cold Chillin' label has had a legendary influence on hip hop – from their early days as an indie, to their largest days distributed by Warner, to more recent life as a stripped down indie again. But through it all, they've always delivered some totally high quality hip hop – most of which has only ever been reissued on halfway-legit compilations, or poorly packaged reissues. Now, the folks at BBE have gone straight to the source – and have asked Marley Marl (the genius behind so many of these cuts), to select some of the finest moments from the label. The set includes 2 rare unreleased cuts – "QB Rockin" by Marley Marl and "Raw" by Kool G Rap and Big Daddy Kane – plus loads of other classics, including "The Bridge" by MC Shan, "Ain't No Half Steppin" by Big Daddy Kane, "Me & The Biz" by Masta Ace, "Poison" by Kool G Rap & Polo, "The Doo Doo" by Biz Markie, "Have A Nice Day" by Roxanne Shante, "Droppin Science" by Marley Marl & Craig G, and the legendary "Symphony" by Marley Marl and the Juice Crew All Stars. The vinyl version comes as 3LPs, in a great looking package! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jim Galloway & Jay McShannJim & Jay's Christmas ... CD
Sackville, 1992. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great small combo Holiday album – one that really brings out some of the bluer sides of the Christmas songs it features! The group features the legendary Jay McShann on piano, and Jim Galloway on soprano, tenor, and baritone sax – working here with just bass and drums in a quartet, which leaves plenty of room for both of the leaders to really open up on the tunes! There's a bit of a Kansas City vibe to some of the best cuts – as if you're hearing the tracks in the backroom of a tavern, well past midnight on Christmas Eve – when that special sort of Holiday sadness has set in. Titles include "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "Christmas In New Orleans", "Auld Lang Syne", "Christmas Night In Harlem", "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", and "White Christmas".

Tiny GrimesDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Food For Thought ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1970/1974. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Tiny Grimes is one of the most unique guitarists in jazz – a player with a force and power that's clearly rooted in the blues – given that he can hit the strings like T Bone Walker or Pee Wee Crayton – but a style that's clearly jazz overall, and delivered with a heck of a lot of punch! This album has Grimes really shining in a small combo with Jay McShann on piano, George Kelly on tenor, and Francois Biensan on Hammond – working in a groove that's got just the right kind of open vibe to recall some of Tiny's best albums for Prestige Records from a decade before – nice in gritty, in the best possible way! Titles include "Morgantini With Mime", "Food For Thought", "Young Blood's Blues", and "Connie Hayes Groovy Eyes". CD also features a session from a few years later – similarly excellent, with Lloyd Glenn on piano – on tracks that include "Sid's West End Blues", "Lil Darlin", "Swingin Mama", and "Some Groovy Fours".

VariousAnd This Is Me – Britain's Finest Thespians Sing ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $7.99
A very cool collection of tracks from voices you might know more for their work on the screen – an array of British talents from the postwar years who were mostly known for their comedic performances in film and on TV! The word "thespians" is used here with a bit of wit – as most of these singers are ones from the lower-brow side of British entertainment – early situation comedies, Carry On films, and outlets like that – but given a really beautiful array of arrangements here, which help deliver some surprisingly great vocal performances! Some of these numbers are novelty tunes, others are a bit more straight – but overall, there's a nice sense of jazz and zing to the material – the kind of punch you'd expect if you saw their performances in a movie. Titles include "Postman's Knock" by Spike Milligan, "Alone Together" by Bernard Bresslaw, "Send For Me" by Terry Thomas, "It Had Better Be A Wonderful Life" by Barbara Windsor & Harry Fowler, "Three Nice Mice" by Max Bygraves, "I Like It" by Mike & Bernie Winters, "What About Me" by Bernard Cribbins, "Harry Brown" by Ian McShane, "Lonely For A Girl" by Oliver Reed, "We Go Together" by Eric Sykes & Hattie Jacques, and "Double Bunk" by Sid James & Liz Fraser.

VariousVoodoo In America – Blues, Jazz, Rhythm & Blues, & Calypso 1926 to 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 20s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 26.99
Caribbean voodoo hits the American scene – served up here in a host of different mid-century styles – from jazz, to blues, to R&B – with some other nice surprises in between! The voodoo component of the tracks comes through either in the subject matter, or in the rhythmic progressions – which illustrate the way that African roots shifted as they made their way through the Caribbean, up to New Orleans – never dying in intensity, and instead finding a lot of new energy in the process! The 2CD set features a big booklet of notes in English, and contains 40 titles that include "Song Of The Jumbies" by Josephine Premice, "She Put The Whamee On Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Marie Laveau" by Oscar Celstin, "Voodoo Woman" by Jay McShann, "Witch Doctor" by Art Blakey, "Thirty Days" by Chuck Berry, "Evil Eyed Woman" by Terry Timmons, "Hoodoo Lady" by Memphis Minnie, "Goofer Dust Swing" by Lil Johnson, "Root Doctor Blues" by Doctor Clayton, and "It's Your Voodoo Working" by Charles Sheffield.

✨✧ Al CaseyDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Jumpin' With Al ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual album from guitarist Al Casey – a player who uses an acoustic instrument here, but plays in a jazz-based mode – yet one that's a bit different than you might expect! Al's got a spacious approach, and really leans into the notes – almost like an acoustic blues musician, but with the fluidity of a jazz artists – working in two different settings for the record! Half the set's got Al's guitar alongside the piano of Jay McShann – in a rootsy setting that's really wonderful, and so stripped down you can actually hear some humming and grunting along with the rhythms. The other half of the record expands the group a bit more – with Milt Buckner on piano, plus bass and drums – and the very unusual presence of Jimmy Slide tap dancing a bit, too. Casey's tone is still the same as before, although maybe slightly more dynamic – and titles include "One Woman's Man", "Rosetta", "Willow Weep For Me", "If You Ain't K", "I Wish I Knew", and "Just You Just Me". CD features the unreleased track "Pousse Cafe" – plus bonus alternate takes! CD

✨✧ VariousR&B Christmas – Icon ... CD
Universal, 1990s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary Christmas classics from the past few decades of soul music – a tightly-done set that brings together some of the best of the more recent Holiday cuts! The package is a nice contrast to some of the more classic Christmas soul collections on the market – such as those from Motown or Stax – and shows a continuing legacy in the evolution of Holiday soul – as some of these artists are reworking original tracks from the 70s – whereas many 70s soul artists were initially only serving up soul versions of more standard Christmas numbers. Titles include "Someday At Christmas" by Mary J Blige, "This Christmas" by Ashanti, "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Vanessa Williams & Bobby Caldwell, "Merry Christmas Baby" by Faith Evans, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Toni Braxton & Babyface, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of Year" by Patti LaBelle, "Winter Wonderland" by The Isley Brothers, "The First Noel" by Brian McKnight, and "Silent Night" by Boyz II Men.

✨✧ Avery SunshineTwenty Sixty Four ... CD
Shanachie, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Just the kind of record that reminds us why Avery Sunshine is one of the best female soul singers to come up in recent years – an artist who was instantly a pro, yet also very much her own person too – able to write the kind of fresh lyrics that really keep us interested, and put herself on the line without ever selling out! Avery's got some great guest work on the record – including song contributions from Eric Roberson, and appearances by Frank McComb and Keyon Harrold – all artists we respect tremendously, and are glad to have endorse Avery as strongly as we do! But right from the start, the lady's the main attraction – as you'll hear on the sublime lineup of tunes that include "Come Do Nothing", "Used Car", "Jump", "The Ice Cream Song", "Everything I've Got", "Twenty Sixty Four", "Heaven Is Right Here", "Kiss & Make It Better", and "I Just Don't Know".
