Stephane Grappelli & David GrismanStephane Grappelli & David Grisman Live ... LP
Warner, 1981. Sealed Gatefold ... $5.99
A very cool mixing of acoustic modes – a set that features the famous jazz violin of Stephane Grappelli joining the rootsy group of mandolin man David Grisman! The mix of modes is quite haunting – and Grappelli's old school lines really do a lot in the company of Grisman's new acoustic group – a lineup that also features Mark O'Connor on guitar, Mike Marshall on mandolin, Rob Wasserman on bass, and Tiny Moore on a bit of guest electric mandolin. Titles are jazzier than usual for Grisman, and tracks include "Shine", "Pent-Up House", "Satin Doll", "Tiger Rag", and "Swing 42". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grant GreenFeelin' The Spirit ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good ... $29.99
Soulful, spiritual work from guitarist Grant Green – an exploration of older tunes with a hip Blue Note 60s soul jazz approach! The album features Grant working in a quartet with Herbie Hancock, Billy Higgins, and Butch Warren – plus some added tambourine on a number of tracks – and the overall approach is extremely laidback and open, with Green soloing in a personal style that's a bit less frenetic than some of his other work of the period. Tracks include "Go Down Moses", "Just A Closer Walk With Thee", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on "Motherless Child".)

✨✧ Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall! Grant's working here in a large group – Kudu style – with arrangements by David Matthews, but a sound that's still pretty lean overall! There's a fair bit of great players in the lineup – including Jon Faddis on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, and Joe Farrell on tenor – and the horns soar out nicely to set the scene over some tightly stepping backings – all served up with plenty of room for Grant to solo spaciously on guitar! The title track – "The Main Attraction" – is nearly 20 minutes long – and the other two tracks, "Creature" and "Future Feature", both approach the 10 minute mark themselves! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Marcia GriffithsNaturally/Steppin ... CD
Sky Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of albums from Marcia Griffiths – the well-titled queen of reggae at the end of the 70s! First up is Naturally, a fantastic album from Marcia Griffiths – very much the kind of material that made her one of the best female singers on the Jamaican scene in the 70s! The set's got a soulful sparkle that's undeniable – music that could have, should have (if things were right) gotten Marcia much bigger fame in the US crossover market of the time – as these songs work equally well as laidback soul numbers, even with strong reggae rhythms – thanks to the warmth and class of the vocals! A number of tracks are originals, and titles include "Dreamland", "Tell Me Now", "Melody Life", "Survival Is The Game", "Feel Like Jumping", "Mark My Word", and "Truly". Steppin features Marcia Griffiths at the height of her powers – singing wonderfully and soulfully, in a style that almost transcends her Jamaican roots! While other reggae singers of the period were maybe polishing things up a bit, to reach larger commercial fame, Griffiths seems to be stepping back more into soul, while still working with familiar Kingston rhythms – crafting this mode that's completely compelling, and which has as much personal feeling as some of the more powerful social themes of the roots era. Errol Brown recorded the tracks at Treasure Isle, and titles include "It's Impossible", "Steppin Out Of Babylon", "Where Were Why", "Why There Is No Love", "Give & You Get", and "I'm Hurting Inside".

Groove CollectiveGroove Collective ... CD
Giant Step/Reprise, 1994. Used ... $0.99
The group's first, with production courtesy the great Gary Katz, who's put a fine touch on many Steely Dan LPs. While we were a bit dismissive of this effort at the time, it's kind of become a bit of a watershed in retrospect, the high water mark for the American Acid Jazz scene, if a bit commercial, and definitely a nice portrait of the mid 90s NYC scene, with loads of great players from all over the spectrum. Titles include "El Gollpe Avisa", "Buddah Head", "Nerd", "Balimka", "Rentstrike", and "Saturday Afternoon". CD
(Out of print, promotional stamp on booklet cover.)

Steve GrossmanPerspective ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Sealed ... $2.99
One of the warmer Steve Grossman albums of the 70s – a set that moves away from some of the sharper fusion of his indie label sets, but which still has plenty of fire in Steve's horn! Grossman plays tenor and soprano, and the styles range from soul-fusion groovers, to propulsive jazz jammers, to some mellower moments that are surprisingly nice! Other players include Howard Bugzy Feiten on guitars, Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano and keyboards, Mark Egan on bass, and either Lenny White and Steve Jordan on drums. Things are usually a bit more stripped down than most mainstream fusion albums of the time – with lots of acoustic elements in the forefront, which makes for a setting that never dampens Grossman's power at all. Titles include "Olha Graciela", "King Tut", "Katonah", "The Crunchies", "Creepin", "Arfonk", and "Pastel". LP, Vinyl record album

Merle HaggardI Love Dixie Blues ... LP
Capitol, 1973. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the great live sets that Merle Haggard recorded during his glory days at Capitol Records – with a nice current of jazzy elements, to mark the New Orleans location of the concert! Titles include a live take on "Okie From Muskogee" – now famous, given the previous live release of the cut – plus "I Wonder If They Ever Think Of Me", "The Emptiest Arms In The World", "I Forget You Every Day", "Carolyn", and "Lovesick Blues".

Chico HamiltonChico Hamilton Plays Selections From Bye Bye Birdie & Irma La Douce ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Not as hip as some of Chico's albums for Impulse, but not without some nice moments! The group here features Charles Lloyd on flute and sax, plus guitar by Harry Pope, bassy by Bobby Haynes, and cellist Nat Gershmann. In typical Hamilton form, Chico takes tunes of common and mundane origin, and turns them on their ear through a complicated approach to rhythm. The best tunes pick up on the modal groove that Chico was sneaking into his work – and titles include "Our Language Of Love", "A Lot Of Living To Do", "Baby Talk To Me", "She's Got The Lot", and "From A Prison Cell". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye stereo pressing. Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)

Philip HarperThirteenth Moon ... CD
Muse, 1994. Used ... $3.99
Well-crafted work from trumpeter Philip Harper – a set that's almost got that "jazz plus" feel of some of the Muse Records dates of the time – an extra undercurrent of soul, even though the album's a pretty straight session overall! The arrangements are especially well-penned – not as free on the solo parts, but carefully crafted with a nice sense of color – and Harper's sidemen are especially nice, with Mark Gross on alto, Herb Harris on tenor, and Norman Simmons on piano – all of whom fall tightly into line when needed. Anna Lisa sings vocals on the track "Almost Blue" – and other instrumental titles include "Amanda", "Thirteenth Moon", "Candy", "Windmill", and "Lotus Blossom". CD

Winard Harper with Jeli PosseCoexist ... CD
JLP, 2012. Used ... $5.99
A great title for this hip little record – one that definitely has the group coexisting together beautifully in the space of the set – working with well-fused energy that really makes the music shine! The set's got the soulful vibe of some of the best indie sets from the end of the 80s – like some of the overlooked gems on the Muse label – with a deep sense of roots, but a fresh way of presenting them – so that the set's neither the usual bag of jazz, nor some overwrought attempt to recreate history. Instead, it's something fresh and new, and very personal – from drummer Winard Harper (who also plays some balafon too!), along with Bruce Harris on trumpet, Jovan Alexandre on tenor, Michael Dease on trombone, Roy Assaf on piano – and guest work from Frank Wess on tenor and flute, Mark Gross on alto, and Tadataka Unno on piano. Titles include "Helen's Song", "Ummah", "Hard Times", "Get Tough", "A Bientot", "Triumph", and "Coexist". CD

Theo HillPromethean ... CD
Posi tone, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 16.98
Wonderfully romping piano from Theo Hill – a musician who's clearly got some earlier soul jazz inspiration in his style, but who also knows how to warm things up with a bit of lyricism too – in a manner that reminds us of the direction that Cedar Walton took from the 60s into the 70s! Theo has a way of making complex ideas come across with a very natural pulse – and he gets great help here from trio members Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Mark Whitfield on drums – both players who share the same rolling spirit that Theo brings to his piano. Titles include the original track "The Phoenix", plus great takes on "Hey It's Me Your Talking To", "Finger Painting", "Blasphemy", "This Here", "Litha", and "Is That So". CD

Richard Groove HolmesLiving Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Very Good ... $7.99
Tight trio material from the legendary Richard Groove Holmes – caught live at Count Basie's Nightclub in Harlem, working hard and heavy with a trio that features Gene Edwards on guitar and George Randall on drums! This live set is the kind of record that beautifully shows why Groove was so popular with live audiences in the 60s – because he can burn all night long, with no tricks, no gimmicks, just a straight-on soul jazz groove and some amazing work on the Hammond! Most cuts are pretty long – and there's some great groovers on here like Gerald Wilson's "Blues For Yna Yna", a cover of "Girl From Ipanema", Jimmy Heath's "Gemini", and Groove's own "Living Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Blues For Yna Yna". Cover has a half split bottom seam.)

Lightnin HopkinsAutobiography In Blues ... LP
Tradition, Early 60s. Very Good ... $33.99
Quite an amazing little record – and one that definitely lives up to its title! The set's one of the most intimate ever recorded by Lightning Hopkins – done in a style that's equally folk as it is blues – with Hopkins playing guitar and singing, but in a very relaxed, laidback style that also feels more conversational at points – especially when he breaks out from singing to do a bit of speaking. The approach is wonderful – just right for the aging talents of this legendary Texas musician – on cuts that include "The Gambling Life", "Mama & Papa Hopkins", "Trouble In Mind", "Get Off My Toe", "75 Highway", "Short Haired Woman", "So Long Baby", and "Bottle Up & Go". LP, Vinyl record album
(White/tan label pressing with deep groove in the purple cover. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Bottle Up & Go".)

✨✧ Shirley HornShirley Horn At Northsea (All Night Long/Violets For Your Furs) ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1981. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99 26.99
Great European work from Shirley Horn – recorded live, in a setting that really lets her stretch out nicely – almost as if she's finding the new sort of maturity that would mark her music in the 80s, right during the space of the concert! The format is quite spare – just Horn's piano behind her vocals, plus bass from Charles Ables and drums from Billy Hart – the last of whom is especially restrained – often keeping way off to the side, but stepping in nicely when Shirley needs him to swing. And as on some of Horn's best records, the bass is key to the whole sound – inflecting the vocals with these deep tones that are beautiful – almost a nodding response to the careful emotion she brings to her lyrics. Titles include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Good For Nothing Joe", "Someone Like That In Your Life", "Git Rid Of Monday", "Mediation", "If Dreams Came True", "Lover Man", "Violets For Your Furs", "Baby Won't You Please", "My Man", "More Than You Know", and "Our Love Is Here To Stay".

Freddie HubbardHub-Tones (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
An album with a classic modernist cover image – and one that's also got the same sort of sound to match – brilliant early work from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, who's really coming into his own as a leader with this date! Freddie's really finding a voice here – a sharper edge than on some of his later albums, at the beginning of a more modernist phase in the mid-60s – when his efforts would mark him as one of the more straight ahead players of the "new thing" scene. There's a careful balance in Hubbard's work here – spurred on by youthful energy of group mates Herbie Hancock on piano, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Hubbard is really brimming over with new ideas – as are the other players – and titles include "Lament for Booker", "Prophet Jennings", "Hub Tones", "For Spee's Sake", and "You're My Everything". LP, Vinyl record album
