Cannonball AdderleyBlack Messiah ... CD
Capitol/Dusty Groove, Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $17.99 19.98
A massive live set from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that really shows the growth he'd undergone in just a few short years! The album's done in close collaboration with David Axelrod – who'd handled Cannon's big live dates for Capitol in the 60s – but this record is much more freewheeling, open-ended, fuzz, funky, and electric overall! Tracks are all nice and long, and really trip out in the best way – with keyboards from George Duke in the core group, plus some heavy basslines from Walter Booker, drums from Roy McCurdy, and guitar from Mike Deasy on a number of key tracks. Deasy plays with lots of great wah wah and fuzz – and the album also features guest work from Airto on percussion and Ernie Watts on tenor – plus Cannonball's great alto and the cornet of brother Nat Adderley too. There's a really collaborative feel to the whole thing – as the record steps easily between a lot of heady styles – and titles include "Zanek", "Eye Of The Cosmos", "The Scene", "The Chocolate Nuisance", "The Steam Drill", "Little Benny Hen", and "The Black Messiah". CD
(On the Dusty Groove label.)

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Live! ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
Cannonball Adderley with David Axelrod production – a combination that couldn't miss back in the 60s! In keeping with the success of the Mercy Mercy Mercy album done with Axelrod, Capitol did everything they could to catch Cannonball in a live setting – a great move, given the open, soulful energy his group had in the format – crowd-pleasing, but always plenty darn creative too! Added to the mix here is some nice production by David Axelrod, capturing all the right moments in all the right ways – especially when Joe Zawinul steps up to take some sweet solos on the keys – and the great Charles Lloyd serves up some mighty nice work on flute and tenor sax. Other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include "The Song My Lady Sings", "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Work Song", and "Sweet Georgia Bright".

Cannonball AdderleyPhenix ... CD
Fantasy, 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall! The album's actually Cannonball's last full studio set, but it's also one of his greatest too – a very hip little record that features arrangements that are slightly bigger than before – almost a CTI sort of mode, with a similar CTI sense of space, sound, and timing! There's some great keyboards on the set – courtesy of George Duke and Mike Wolff – and other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Airto on percussion, Sam Jones and Walter Booker on bass, and Louis Hayes and Roy McCurdy on drums. The keyboards lead off most numbers, but they're followed strongly by Cannon and Nat – both of whom open up wonderfully in the magical setting of the record! Titles include great new takes on "Sack O Woe", "Work Song", "Jive Samba", "74 Miles Away", "Walk Tall/Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Country Preacher", "Domination", and "This Here" – plus "Hi Fly" and "Hamba Nami".

Cannonball AdderleySoul Zodiac ... CD
Capitol (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling all the way through – a darkly brooding batch of funky jazz that shows a strong Miles Davis electric influence at points, thanks to Nat Adderley's spacey trumpet lines, Mike Deasy's trippy guitar, and George Duke's excellent keyboards! Other tracks are a bit more laidback, fitting the mood of their respective signs – and overall, the whole thing slips and slides wonderfully from cut to cut – taking you through the star signs with a really righteous, soulful approach. Titles include "Cancer", "Sagittarius", "Pisces", "Aquarius", "Capricorn", "Virgo", "Taurus", "Aries", "Libra", and a special "Introduction". CD

Cannonball Adderley QuintetHappy People ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record – a set that isn't really bossa, but isn't regular Cannonball funk either – kind of a special hybrid of the two! Airto plays on the set, and contributed the great groover "The Happy People" – a long bit of funky samba that features George Duke on electric piano, and percussion and vocals by Airto himself. The rest of the album's pretty darn great too – with some long tracks that have a more open-ended groove than the usual Cannon funk – featuring more piano by Duke, percussion by Airto and King Errison, cornet by Nat Adderley, and guitar by David T Walker. Other titles include "Ela", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Savior" – and the album was recorded live, with a very lively feel! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nat AdderleyDouble Exposure ... LP
Prestige, 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A lost chapter in the David Axelrod/Cannonball Adderley tradition – and one of Nat's best albums from the 70s! Nat's funky trumpet sits nicely in moody arrangements by David Axelrod and Jimmy Jones – and the group features electric piano by George Duke, plus guest playing by Cannonball Adderley, Hal Galper, and Johnny Watson. Includes a few cuts with vocals by Nat, done in a weird funky style that's vaguely similar to Eugene McDaniels. Titles include "Traffic", "Contant 19", "59 Go & Pass", "Quit It", "Watermelon Man", and "Song Of The Valez Diamond", which has some cool electronics! LP, Vinyl record album

Beatles/George MartinYellow Submarine ... LP
Apple, 1968. Very Good ... $18.99
Sure it's a soundtrack, and sure it's got a number of songs that are just instrumentals from the film – but the record also features some excellent late Beatles tracks that can only be found here – including the killer tracks "Hey Bulldog" (almost a funky nugget), "Only A Northern Song", and "All Together Now". Also includes "Yellow Submarine" (natch) – plus "It's All Too Much" and "All You Need Is Love" – and side two features a number of groovy instrumentals from George Martin – including "Pepperland", "Sea Of Holes", "March Of The Meanies", and "Pepperland Laid Waste".

✨✧ George BensonIt's Uptown (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1966/1967. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
George Benson's first LP for Columbia – a hard, heavy, soul jazz slammer that bears no resemblance to his overproduced work of the 70s! The album's a real cooker – recorded hot on the heels of Benson's classic work on Prestige with the Jack McDuff group, and sounding a lot like McDuff's hard wailing organ jazz of the same time. George is working with a group that features a young Lonnie Smith on organ, plus Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Ronnie Cuber on sax, and Charlie Persip on drums – all tightly coming together, and jamming hard on the album's short cooking tracks. Tracks include "Clockwise", "Jaguar", "Hello Birdie", and "Bullfight". Plus, the CD adds five bonus tracks, including "Sideman", "Minor Chant", and the previously unreleased "J.H. Bossa Nova" and "Clockwise (Alternate Take)". CD

George BraithMusart ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". CD

Bus People Express (Poets Of Rhythm)Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)/South Carolina ... 7-inch
Hotpie & Candy/Daptone, 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99 6.99
A rarity from the early 90s funky underground by Bus People Express – who were alternately working as Soul Saints during this period – and they would soon trailblaze the contemporary funk scene as Poets Of Rhythm! "Augusta Georgia (Here I Come)" starts out with stripped-down drums and some gritty call and response group vocals, before the guitar and bass come storming in. Reminiscent of James Brown at his rawest and grittiest, ala Motherlode! "South Carolina" has a slower cooking style with some southern funky soul swagger, as you might guess from the title. A prescient blast of modern funk to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

George CablesIn Good Company ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Pianist George Cables is definitely in good company here – just the right sort of trio that seems to unlock that natural pulse and flow in his music! George is always great, but some records like this really bring him to his height – that magical energy that first seemed to grace Cables' music back in the 70s, when he could play an acoustic piano with the spirit of an electric – thanks to a special touch on the keys, and an inherently rhythmic approach! That mode is still strongly in place here – especially during the many moments in which the bass of Essiet Essiet seems wrapped right around Cables' keys, creating this tonal depth that we totally love. The trio also features really lovely work from the great Victor Lewis on drums – and titles include "After The Morning", "Mr Anonymouse", "Lotus Blossom", "Love You Madly", "Voyage", and "EVC". CD

✨✧ Wolfgang Dauner TrioDream Talk (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CBS/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
An early session from German pianist Wolfgang Dauner – one with a sound that's every bit as great as you'd expect from the title! The "dream talk" component here is one that comes from Dauner's gentle, yet modern approach to the keys – one that's clearly learning lessons from 50s modernists like George Russell or Bill Evans, but which is stretching out here in some of the bolder freedoms of the European scene at the time – a precursor to later modes on MPS and Saba, but performed here with a bit more careful restraint. The record's nicely free from some of the overindulgences of some of Dauner's 70s sides, and is an acoustic effort throughout – extremely imaginative, with a "set free" quality that's also never too "out", nor too full of itself – a bit like the best early recordings by Steve Kuhn. Wolfgang's approach to the keys is nothing less than revelatory – and he receives well matched accompaniment from bassist Eberhard Weber and drummer Fred Braceful. Titles include "Free Fall", "Dammerung", "Soul Eyes", "A Long Night", "Dream Talk", and "Bird Food". CD
(Cool tri-fold cover – like the original album!)

Sammy Davis JrSammy Davis Jr All Star Spectacular ... LP
Reprise, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A real oddity in the Sammy Davis Jr collection from the 60s – and almost more of a comedy album than a vocal one! The album is subtitled "Sammy Davis Jr Impersonating" – and then lists a range of stars, singers, and actors from the mid 20th century – including Tony Bennett, Mario Lanza, Ray Charles, Frankie Laine, Al Hibbler, James Cagney, Bela Lugosi, Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, and many others – all of whom Sammy channels in voices while singing tunes on side 1! Impersonation was a big part of Davis' live show in the 60s, and this album is one of the few to highlight it – with comedic versions of "That Lucky Old Sun", "Sonny Boy", "Ballerina", "Lulu's Back In Town", and "Stranger In Paradise". Side 2 features straight vocal tunes with arrangements by George Rhodes, Neal Hefti, and Morty Stevens (who also handled side 1) – with titles that include "I Married An Angel", "Without A Song", "Deed I Do", "Falling In Love Again", and "You Can't Love Em All".

Esoteric CircleGeorge Russell Presents The Esoteric Circle ... CD
Freedom/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $8.99
Groundbreaking sounds from the Norwegian scene of the late 60s – an album that's got George Russell's name on the cover, but which actually features brilliant performances from a quartet who'd go onto become huge names in the ECM scene of the 70s! Yet the sound here is quite different than ECM, too – very full and free – with vibrant work that really illuminates the younger years of these musicians – a sublime quartet that includes Jan Garbarek on tenor and soprano sax, Terje Rypdal on guitar, Arild Anderson on bass, and Jon Cristensen on drums! Some tunes are quite free, while others have a spiritual sense of soul that's equally grat – and throughout the record, all players express themselves in an unfettered way – with visionary performances on tracks that include "Nefertiti", "Traneflight", "Esoteric Circle", "SAS 644", "Karin's Mode", and "Breeze Ending".

Gil EvansIndividualism of Gil Evans ... LP
Verve, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
Although Gil Evans is probably best remembered for his work behind Miles Davis, the albums he cut on his own are actually even more interesting, and feature a far-reaching conception of modern jazz, executed by Evans, and some of the top players of his day. This great album from 1964 features a host of wonderful musicians – including Steve Lacy, Eric Dolphy, Johnny Coles, and Wayne Shorter. The set includes mostly original compositions by Evans, like "Las Vegas Tango", "El Toreador", "Flute Song", and "Hotel Me" – all of them a shimmering blend of free solos and tightly composed orchestral passages, filled with rich colors and shades of warm imagination!

Tommy FlanaganGiant Steps – In Memory Of John Coltrane ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1982. Used ... $7.99
A wonderful little tribute to the late, great John Coltrane – served up as a piano trio session led by Tommy Flanagan, but done with a sense of power and imagination that rivals the strength of Trane's classics! All tracks here are originals by Coltrane, performed by Flanagan with a forceful approach to the piano that shows a bit more McCoy Tyner than usual – and which is propelled strongly on most numbers by bold rhythm work from the team of George Mraz on bass and Al Foster on drums. Foster's work on the kit is especially nice – quite bold, and really soaring forward with a sense of righteous energy – inspiring Flanagan to heights we've never heard before on a session like this. Titles include "Naima", "Giant Steps", "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Central Park West", "Mr PC", and "Cousin Mary". CD
