Grant GreenMain Attraction ... LP
Kudu, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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
Also available Main Attraction ... CD 9.99

Steve GrossmanPerspective ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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

Eddie HarrisLost Album Plus The Better Half ... CD
Collectables, 1962. Used ... $5.99
Incredible work by the great Eddie Harris – an album that was initially recorded for Vee Jay during his early tenure at the label, but not issued for years! The album's one of Eddie's greatest from the time – a really far-reaching blend of soul jazz, hardbop, and some of the more exotic influences running through the Chicago scene from whence he came. Two tracks on the album are especially long groovers – "Cuttin Out" and "Shakey Jake" – both in the 15 minute mark, and extended jammers with Ira Sullivan on trumpet, Bunky Green on alto, and Melvin Rhyne on organ. The first two tracks on the set feature Eddie in a lineup with Willie Pickens, Raphael Don Garrett, and Ira Sullivan – on the modal groovers "The Dancing Bull" and "Antidote". And the last 4 tracks on the CD are pulled from the album "Half & Half" – an 8 track release that initially featured 4 tunes with Eddie blowing with a vocal group, and these other 4 that have him working with a very hip group that includes Charles Stepney on piano, Melvin Jackson on bass, Joe Dorio on guitar, and Marshall Thompson on drums. Titles include "Half & Half", "KC Blues", "Lawrence Of Arabia", and "Yea Yea Yea". CD

Coleman HawkinsHawkins Alive At The Village Gate (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1962. Used ... $9.99
Long, lean, and later work by Coleman Hawkins – recorded in a beautifully stripped-down and free setting at the Village Gate! The tracks are all pushing the 10 minute mark – and feature Hawk soloing in that open, exploratory way he was using during the time – a mix of older traditions and slight moments of modernism – carried off with gentle accompaniment from a trio led by Tommy Flanagan on piano. The tenor dominates – and dominates beautifully – and titles include "All The Things You Are", "Mack The Knife", "Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho" and "Talk Of The Town". 2 additional tracks on this Japanese CD edition: "Bean And The Boys" and "If I Had You".

Roy HeadSame People ... LP
Dunhill, 1970. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Brassy jazzy hard and tight little tracks from this blue-eyed southern soul brother – with production by the great Huey P Meux. The album's core is a rocking southern sound, but there are definitely more soul elements here – and the heavy drums on the set make it super nice and funky! Sampled by Tribe Called Quest, Lord Finesse, and others – and with the cuts "Soul Train", "Neighbor Neighbor", "Don't Want To Make It Too Funky", "Trying To Reach My Goal", and the break-heavy "Double Your Satisfaction". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Earl HinesOnce Upon A Time ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
One of our favorite records by Earl Hines – a hip little comeback set, recorded in the mid 60s with an Ellingtonish lineup that includes Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, and Johnny Hodges. Hines' piano is certainly a strong force in the record, but even more delightful is the solid feel of the players overall – working with that complete coherence found in the best 60s sides by Duke, but touched here with some of Hines' sprightly approach to the melody. Titles include "Once Upon A Time", "Black & Tan Fantasy", "You Can Depend On Me", "Hash Brown", and "Fantastic That's You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole and a light mark from sticker removal.)

Mick HoughtonBecoming Elektra – The True Story Of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label ... Book
Jawbone, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 29.95
A wonderfully detailed story of one of the coolest record labels ever – a book that really gets at the huge range of folk, blues, psych, and other wonderful sounds issued by Elektra Records! The tome is massive – big enough to feature a lot of full color pictures, but with a much stronger emphasis on text than usual for this sort of volume – with an especially deep look into the early days of Zac Holzman, and his initial love of pre-rock modes before the bigger shift to more popular Elektra modes of the late 60s. The book is over 300 pages, and is past the halfway mark before The Doors even come into the picture – which really gives you an idea of the kind of detail involved, The book also features a full Elektra discography in the back – at least until the point at which Holzman left the label – and the whole thing's honestly one of the best accounts of a label's formation we've ever read. 304 pages, oversized, with some color images.

Richard HughesHigh Wind In Jamaica ... Book
New York Review Of Books, 1929. New Copy ... $5.99 14.95
A book that was chosen by Modern Library as "one of the hundred best novels of the 20th century" – but one that would already be well worth picking up, even without that praise – given the subtle richness of the story! Richard Hughes tells the story of a group of wayward children caught up with pirates – coming to terms with their own limitations, and the shackles of their innocence – in a book that's almost kind of a Peter Pan narrative gone awry, given the prose that Hughes uses for his tale. There's a post-Victorian ghost still lingering somewhere in the background, although the book itself is clearly of a more modern age – and that tension between the two eras is also mapped out in the core of the story as well – between shifting poles of darkness and innocence – very fitting of the Henry Darger image on the cover. 279 pages, softcover. Book

Jermaine JacksonFrontiers ... LP
Motown, 1978. Very Good ... $4.99
Jermaine didn't really hit his stride making up tempo bass heavy funk until Let's Get Serious, which followed this album a few years later, but this set has a few moments that are stretching towards that high water mark in his career. Overall, it's a rather slick, highly produced affair, and though Jermaine likes to step out and push his bass playing way up front, it's the mellow synth-kissed groover "Castles Of Sand" we dig the most on this album. Also includes "The Force", "Let It Ride", "Take A Trip To My Tomorrow" and "You Gave Me Something To Believe In ". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a bit of marker.)

Willis JacksonSoul Grabber ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of our favorite albums ever by Willis Jackson – and in fact one of our favorite soul jazz sides of the 60s! There's a mad groove here that's quite different than any of Jackson's earlier work – freer, looser, and more experimental – handled with a sound that's almost fuller in the arrangements, but which also gives the soloists more room to groove around. Willis himself plays the amazing gatorhorn on a number of tracks – a long funny-looking variation on the tenor, and a horn that has an almost George Braith or Roland Kirk-like sound. The rest of the group features some great guitar by Wally Richardson and smoking organ by Carl Wilson – plus electric bass at the bottom from Bob Bushnell, a key component to the harder-hitting quality of the grooves. The set features a fantastic version of Baden Powell's "Song of Ossahana", plus great covers of "Sunny", "Girl Talk", and "Ode to Billy Joe" – and the tracks "Soul Grabber", "Alfie", "I Dig Rock & Roll Music", and "Rhode Island Red". LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy James & The ShondellsHanky Panky ... LP
Roulette, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
We're sure you know the group from their mega-hit oldie title cut – a garagey tune with a very catchy hook – but you might also appreciate them for the soulful finish they put on other tracks on this set, clearly inspired by groups on Atlantic, and going for a blue-eyed soul approach that they're not always known for. Titles include "Soul Searchin Baby", "Lots Of Pretty Girls", "Shake A Tail Feather", "Good Lovin", "The Lover", and "Love Makes The World Go Round". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a razor mark down the front.)

✨✧ Elvin JonesLive In Japan 1978 – Dear John C ... LP
Trio (Japan), 1978. Very Good+ ... $28.99
A smoking live set from Elvin Jones' Jazz Machine group – a very powerful quintet that's driven by a two-saxophone engine! The reeds here are handled by Frank Foster and Pat Labarbera – both of whom help Jones work out some post-Coltrane energy – but not in a way that seeks to just copy The Great One! Instead, the combo build wonderfully on the spirit left behind by the late Trane – playing long tracks that stretch out with searing solos from both saxophonists, build on piano-less rhythm from Roland Prince's guitar and the bass of Andy McCloud. The set was recorded live, but with wonderful clarity – and titles include Foster's great "House That Love Built", plus "EJ Blues" and a take on "Love Supreme". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert. Cover has a small mark from an old sticker in one corner.)

Another dope cut from the J5 that takes the best of the old-old school back-and-forth MC'ing style combined with updated production from DJ Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist. This time, the vocals work together a lot more smoothly – as the chorus say "Take four MC's and make 'em sound like one." Plus a new version of "Concrete Schoolyard." 12-inch, Vinyl record
