Cold Chillin, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ok, one of the softer of the tracks Shan did for Cold Chillin, but this one still ranks up there with Poor Righteous Teachers "Shakilya" and LL's "I Need Love" as one of the dopest hip hop love songs. With production by Marly Marl and chorus by TJ Swann. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Elmer Bernstein/Shorty Rogers & His GiantsMan With The Golden Arm – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Decca, 1955. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of the greatest jazz soundtracks of all time! Elmer Bernstein wrote the score to Otto Preminger's chilling film version of Nelson Algren's book The Man With The Golden Arm – a sad tale of jazz, gambling, and heroin addiction on the streets of Chicago (not far from Dusty Groove, in fact!) – and in doing so, he came up with one of the first jazz soundtracks to really work strongly with a dramatic narrative. The film's striking theme is played in a number of variations, either with orchestral backing, or in small combo format by Shorty Rogers & His Giants, a crack west coast group that features work by Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Bob Cooper, and Pete Candoli. The tracks work perfectly together as a suite of tracks, even without the images of the film – telling a tale of temptation, sadness, tragedy, and rebirth. Titles include "Clark Street", "Breakup", "The Fix", "Zosh", "Frankie Machine", and "Audition". Worth the price for the Saul Bass cover alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(80s MCA pressing.)

Al Cohn & Shorty RogersEast Coast – West Coast Scene ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1954. Used ... $19.99
A classic session in the tried and true marketing style of "East Coast vs West Coast" jazz, with one side of tracks by a group led by Al Cohn, and featuring Gene Quill, Hal McKusick, and Joe Newman. The other side's got Shorty Rogers representin' on the West Coast, with Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The album's a nice batch of tracks, in the tightly arranged style that characterizes many of these mid-50's RCA jazz sessions. However, since Cohn's measured playing could never really be taken for New York Hot, and since his longtime partner Zoot Sims is part of Rogers' West Coast group, it's hard to say that these sides are really any sort of true battle between the coasts. Instead, though, the tracks are nice and long, with more room for solos than usual, and titles that include "Loki", "Cool Sunshine", and "Inside Out". CD

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 15.99
One of the best Harold Mabern albums we've heard in years – recorded with a trio of familiar partners, John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but in a freewheeling live setting that has the group really stretching out over some long, extended tracks! Mabern's sense of imagination in this setting is wonderful – and really takes us back to the soulful majesty we loved in his music during the 70s – and although a few numbers reflect the ballad mode of some of Harold's studio albums, even these have an open-ended creativity that really goes beyond the usual! Titles include "Dreaming", "Road Song", "Boogie For Al McShann", "Afro Blue", "Alone Together", and a surprisingly great take on "Sesame Street". CD

✨✧ PoguesRum Sodomy & The Lash ... LP
Stiff, 1985. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Here's the rawer of the 2 greatest albums by The Pogues – preceding the more melodic If I Should Fall From Grace With God – balancing punk rock urgency and old soul poetry like no other band ever could. Producer Elvis Costello made it his mission to stay the hell out of the way and just capture the band in all their shambling, boozy glory, and that he does. Underneath his slurred vocals, Shane MacGowan was starting to become one of greatest songwriters ever, and bands punk fueled take in tradition Irish acoustic music some of the most exciting music we could ever hope to hear. Includes "The Sick Bed Of Cuchulainn", "The Old Main Drag", "Wild Cats In Kilkenny", "Dirty Old Town", "Jesse James", "Billy's Bones", "The Gentleman Soldier", "A Pair Of Brown Eyes" and "Navigator".

✨✧ ShaktiShakti With John McLaughlin ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Great post-Mahavishnu work from guitarist John McLaughlin – the debut of his excellent Shakti combo, a group who mixed Indian music with some tighter fusion moments! The style here is a lot leaner than some of McLaughlin's previous experiments – a small group lineup with violin from L Shankar, plus tabla, percussion, ghantam, mridangam, and John's guitar – all used together in really wonderful ways. The Indian roots of the music are often quite strong, and McLaughlin plays a fair bit of acoustic guitar in a respectful way that never intrudes too much on the other players – a huge change from his jamming fusion of the early 70s. The album features 3 long tracks – "Joy", "Lotus Feet", and "What Need Have I For This". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ King CurtisOld Gold/Doing The Dixie Twist ... CD
Tru Sound/Ace (UK), 1961/1962. New Copy ... About May 1, 2016
2 rare pre-Atlantic albums from the legendary King Curtis – back to back on one CD! Old Gold is a sweet early cooker from King – recorded with a raw sound and a sense of fire that most of his other albums from this time didn't have! Part of the difference here is the setting – as the album's cut for Prestige's Tru-Sound subsidiary, which tended to have a rougher, more R&B approach. But another key factor is the group on the set – as it includes Jack McDuff on organ, Billy Butler and Eric Gale on guitars, and Willie Rodriguez on bongos and congas – all of whom make for some great added attractions to the record, and a really cohesive sound that's way more than just King blowing away on sax! Titles are all "old gold" numbers, but updated here with a hipper instrumental groove – and tracks include "Fever", "Honky Tonk", "So Rare", "Tippin In", "The Hucklebuck", "Lean Baby", and "Soft" – all taken almost in a King Records instrumental mode! Doing The Dixie Twist is an album that's got a strange little gimmick, but one that works wonderfully! The "dixie twist" theme means that King's taking older standards associated with the south, and playing them in a fast-crackling, highly rhythmic style that has plenty of "twist" elements! The groove is surprisingly great – really playful, and filled with great work on tenor, trombone, and guitar – all nicely grooving in a style that will really make you forget the origins of the tunes. Titles include "Sweet Georgia Brown", "A Shanty In Old Shantytown", "Royal Garden Blues", "Basin Street Blues", and "Up A Lazy River". CD

MC LyteEyes On This ... LP
First Priority, 1989. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
MC Lyte's second full length record – a bit overlooked in the grand scheme, if only because the preceding Lyte As A Rock was a tough act to follow – so now's a great time to catch up with it! To our ears, Eyes On This is every bit as nice as the debut, and it that last of Lyte's no nonsense late 80s east coast rap efforts – before she started inching more towards a commercial style in the early 90s. An underappreciated classic! Includes "Cappucino", "Stop, Look, Listen" featuring Audio Two, "Survival of the Fittest (rmx)", "I Am the Lyte", "Cha Cha Cha", "Not Wit' A Dealer" and another song dedicated to Shante, "Shut The Eff Up! (Hoe)". Also includes "Throwin Words At U", "Please Understand", "Rhyme Hangover", "Funky Song" and "Slave 2 The Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 ... Just Sold Out!
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.

✨✧ Shakti with John McLaughlinNatural Elements ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty of Natural Elements here – thanks to the Indian roots of the Shakti group! The group's a wonderful collaboration between guitarist John McLaughlin – often playing here on acoustic, far from his earlier fusion – and a trio of Indian musicians, including the great L Shankhar on violin! The sound is soaring, spacious, and makes almost a fusion-like use of some of the elements – but without nearly as many of the cliches as you might expect. The sound quality is excellent, and a further great aspect of the record – and titles include "Mind Ecology", "Face To Face", "The Daffodil & The Eagle", "Get Down & Sruti", and "Peace Of Mind".

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic India (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mad mix of sounds that definitely lives up to the title – as sitars, tabls, and other traditional Indian instruments come into play with fuzzy guitars and freaky rhythms! The work here is partly from the 60s, partly from later years inspired by the roots of the style – and the collection mixes together music from a nicely diverse array of sources, all in search of a new genre that really comes together in the course of the album. Titles include "Chamber Of Dreams" by Jazz Thali, "Thillana" by Jyotsna Srikanth, "Moksha" by Ray Spiegel Ensemble, "A Mystical Morning" by Debashish Bhattacharya with John McLaughlin, "Dancing Drums" by Ananda Shankar, "Dance Music" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Dum Maro Dum" by Asha Bhosle, and "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" by Sunday Driver.
