✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyJulian Cannonball Adderley (aka Cannonball Adderley Quintet In Chicago) ... LP
Mercury/Everest, 1959. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A later budget line reissue of this great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and since Coltrane's sitting in with Cannon – the album's essentially a Kind Of Blue-era Miles album, recorded without Miles on trumpet, and grooving in a slightly more soul-based Adderley mode. Given the presence of Coltrane, there's a bit less of the gutbuckety soul jazz that Cannon was cutting in his own Quintet – but that's more than ok with us, as the Coltrane solos more than make up for that difference! Twe love Coltrane's "The Sleeper" and the set features 4 other numbers, including "Wabash", "You're A Weaver Of Dreams", 'Stars Fell On Alabama" and "The Tune Of The Hickory Stick".

Ernestine AndersonHot Cargo ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good ... $5.99
A great early set from singer Ernestine Anderson – material recorded in Sweden with a sound that's even more sweetly swinging than some of her American albums of the time! The backings on most tracks are by Harry Arnold – one of the hippest Swedish leaders of the time, and an arranger who's clearly got an ear for the more soulful side of Anderson's vocals – hardly the sort of icy Scandinavian sort of groove you might expect! And in a way, Ernestine seems to sound even better in this setting than back home – almost a bit more balanced, with a slight sort of poise that comes through nicely on the ballads. Titles include "Experiment", "Day Dream", "Did I Remember", "Ill Wind", and "My Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam and partially split top.)

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Bar-KaysDangerous ... LP
Mercury, 1984. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A tighter sound than before for The Bar-Kays – that lean approach to funky grooves that some of their contemporaries were hitting as the 80s moved on – yet still served up here by the full ensemble with a relatively fresh feel overall. Amidst the beats and keyboards, there's still lots of nice funky inflections on bass and guitar – often handled in a skittish mode that energizes things nicely, especially alongside the more electro-styled vocals. The vibe of the record is definitely in keeping with the cover – but in the best way possible – and titles include "Dangerous", "Dirty Dancer", "Make Believe Lover", "Freakshow On The Dance Floor", and "Sexomatic". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Bar-KaysInjoy ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good- ... $3.99
Later Bar-Kays at their best – still plenty funky, but also working in a smoothly soulful style that became the group's trademark sound at Mercury! The album's got a real bass-heavy appeal from the start – working in a mode that shares a lot with Cameo, The Gap Band, and some of the other mainstream funk acts at the time – yet which still occasionally shows the group's roots in the rougher Memphis scene. There's actually some great ballads on the album alongside the funk – tunes that sweeten the set nicely, and provide a good counterpoint to the more uptempo numbers. Titles include "Girl I'm On Your Side", "More & More", "Running In & Out Of My Life", "You've Been", and "Up In Here". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp and a few creases.)

Clifford BrownQuintet Vol 1 ... LP
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
First volume pulled together in the early 80s of Brownie's remarkable work with a smoking quintet that would record some of the finest bop sides issued on the Emarcy label. He's working here with Max Roach, George Morrow and Richie Powell and Harold Land as Brown's foil in the front line. 14 tracks in all: "Delilah", "Parisian Thoroughfare", "Jordu", "Sweet Clifford", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Joy Spring", "Mildama", "Daahoud", "Gerkin For Perkin", "Take The A Train", "Lands End" and "Swingin'".

Jerry ButlerSagittarius Movement ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the great albums of trippy soul that Jerry Butler cut with his Fountain Productions group of players, arrangers, and engineers – a group that borrowed a lot of talent from the Chess/Cadet studios of the late 60s. Jerry produced with Gerald Sims, and the arrangements were handled by Sims, James Mack, and Donny Hathaway (who also played piano on the record.) Tracks include "Ain't Understanding Mellow", "Windy City Soul", "True Love Don't Come Easy", and a lesser known Terry Callier/Billy Butler track called "Sail Away". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, split top seam, splitting on the bottom seam, and some smudges.)

✨✧ Jerry ButlerSoul Goes On ... LP
Mercury, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
A great record, and one that's more of a deeper soul effort than some of his other Mercury sessions! Jerry's back recording in Chicago, and the album has arrangements by Arthur Wright, and production by Cal Carter for the Fountain Productions imprint that would grace Jerry and Billy Butler's efforts over the next few years. The LP includes Jerry's fantastic hit "Never Give You Up", plus deep soul versions of a lot of earlier soul classics by Sam Cooke, Jesse Belvin, and Otis Redding – like "Respect", "Ain't That Good News", "Goodnight My Love", "Guess Who", "These Arms Of Mine", and "I've Been Loving You Too Long". Also features "Yes, My Goodness, Yes" – a nice tune that Jerry wrote with Bobby Womack! A nice groovy update of some legendary soul compositions, and a real treat from Jerry! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Jerry ButlerSweet Sixteen ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good ... $7.99
A lost little gem from Jerry – recorded towards the end of his years with Mercury. The record's got Jerry working in a much hipper style than before, drawing off the pool of younger Chicago soul talents that he'd begun to collect on some of his earlier albums for Mercury – and the album features tracks by Leroy Hutson, Terry Callier, Marvin Yancey, and the team of Hanks and Grey. Richard Evans handled the arrangements, and they're a good extension of his work at Cadet – with strong bass-heavy soul grooves, augmented by strings and some great funky clavinet work. Titles include the funky classics "I'm Your Mechanical Man" and "You've Been Around Too Long" – plus "High Stepper", "Start Living It Up", "Sing To Me", "Take The Time To Tell Her", and "Playing On You".

✨✧ Ralph CarterYoung & In Love ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of the stars of the hit 70s show Good Times takes a crack at the same crossover TV/soul market that was being exploited by Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs of Welcome Back Kotter and Kim Fields from Facts of Life. Fortunately, as with most of these efforts, there's some good help instrumentally, so that the overall album can take over with 70s grooves where the soul vocals might get a bit weak. Titles include "Higher & Higher", "Song In My Heart", "Number One", "When You're Young & In Love", "Extra, Extra", and "As Long As There's Love (We're Gonna Make It)". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy ClevelandIntroducing Jimmy Cleveland & His All Stars ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $5.99
An early leader session for Jimmy Cleveland – one that pulls him out of the Lionel Hampton group, and puts him in the company of a number of different all-stars – top level players that Mercury brought together in three different sessions for the album. Players include Lucky Thompson, Cecil Payne, Barry Galbraith, Wade Legge, Paul Chambers, and Jerome Richardson – and it's the quality of the ensemble grooving that really makes the album swing, a lot more than Cleveland's solos on his own. Titles include "Vixen", "Hear Ye Hear Ye", "See Minor", "Bone Brother", "Count 'Em", and "Little Beaver". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy ClevelandMap Of Jimmy Cleveland ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $8.99
Arguably Jimmy Cleveland's most successful album as a leader, thanks in part to some tight charts by the great Ernie Wilkins. The group also plays a big hand in the recording, too – as most players (Junior Mance, Jerome Richardson, Ray Copeland) are pretty darn hip, and manage to drive Cleveland past his usual cliches. Tracks are longish, and titles include "Jimmy's Old Funky Blues", "Jay Bird", "Marie", and "A Hundred Years From Today". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and peeling along the bottom half.)
