AttitudePump The Nation ... LP
RFC/Atlantic, 1983. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A wicked bit of 80s groove from this cool little combo – a trio that features lead vocals from Cindy Mizelle and Stephen Miller, plus supporting vocals and keyboards from Khris Kellow! The groove here is nice and lean – lots of bass and keys riffing out in a snapping, funky 80s groove sort of mode – with vocals that are spare and simple enough to fit right in with the highly rhythmic grooves. There's almost a P-Funk influence at points, but one that's much more stripped-down than George Clinton's at the time – and titles include "Love Me Tonight", "I Wanna Get To Know You Better", "We Got The Juice", "We're Going Off", and "If You Could Read My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Beatles/George MartinYellow Submarine ... LP
Apple, 1968. Very Good+ ... $99.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK stereo pressing, with "Sold In UK" on labels, YEX 715-1/716-1, RH/AT, 2/3, in a flip-back cover with red lines on back. Cover has a sticker spot and small name in pen.)

George BensonIn Your Eyes ... CD
Warner, 1983. Used ... $5.99
Sweetly jazzy soul from George Benson – a key classic from his great run at Warner Brothers Records, and the kind of record that George did better than anyone else at the time! Back in the 60s, we'd never have guessed that Benson's sweetly crackling vocals would dominate popular jazz more than his great guitar work – but hearing George here, it's clear that his soul work could easily outshine his guitar, especially when set up in a package like this! Atlantic soul maestro Arif Mardin produced, and as with his Chaka Khan productions for Warner at the time, he gives Benson a clean, clear modern style that's certainly pop, but also a lot less cluttered and clunky than modes used with other artists at the time. George is mostly on the vocal tip for the set, and Kashif helps out on one track – no surprise, given that Kashif was soon to walk down the path that Benson had started with his first few vocal albums in the 70s. Titles include "Love Will Come Again", "Use Me", "Late At Night", "In Search Of A Dream", "Lady Love Me", "In Your Eyes", and "Never Too Far To Fall". CD

HenzeDer Langwierige Weg In Die Wohnung Der Natascha Ungeheur/The Tedious Way To The Place Of Natascha Ungeheuer ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Wild stuff! Hans Werner Henze juxtaposes a number of different sound groups – including the Gunter Hampel Free Jazz Ensemble, Fires Of London, Philip Jones Brass Quintet, and the percussion of Stomu Yamash'ta – and he throws in some vocalizing by baritone William Pearson. The piece is a symbolic journey to the place of Natascha Ungeheuer, a fictious "siren of a false utopia", who "promises to lead the leftist bourgeois to a new kind of security, which will permit him to preserve his revolutionary clear conscience without taking an active part in class warfare." Clearly the German postwar conscience had a big part in the composition of this piece, but if you forget the dated politics, there's some nice noisy moments – and great percussion by Yamash'ta.

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsImagination ... LP
Buddah, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A pivotal album for Gladys Knight and group – as the record features their super-huge hit "The Midnight Train To Georgia", a landmark track that not only had a catchy pop hook, but which spoke volumes about African-American migration in the postwar years. The track's one of those you've heard a million times, but it's got a strength that still holds up tremendously. Part of this is due to great production work by Tony Camillo – who handled arrangements and studio work on about half the tracks – and part is due to Jim Weatherly, who wrote the song, and about half the others on the album. The whole album's great – one of the best Buddah Records moments for the group – and titles include "I've Got To Use My Imagination", "Window Raising Granny", "Where Peaceful Waters Flow", "Once In A Lifetime Thing", "Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me", and "Storms Of Trouble Times". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still in the shrink, with hype sticker.)

Esther PhillipsAlone Again, Naturally ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips' 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time! Backings are by James Brown's old reedman, Pee Wee Ellis – and although there's some of the usual Kudu electric funk in the mix, there's also some deeper soul elements too – a vibe that's often a bit laidback and open, almost more Atlantic Records at points – which is a mighty good fit for Esther's wonderful voice! As usual for Kudu, the players are an all-star lineup – one that includes Richard Tee on keyboards, George Benson on guitar, Maceo Parker on tenor, and Bernard Purdie and Billy Cobham on drums – and Don Sebesky's also on deck a bit, to sweeten a few tracks up with light strings. The album's got a great version of Bill Withers' "Use Me" that features a tasty break in the intro – and other titles include a great version of "Alone Again (Naturally)", plus the cuts "Let's Move & Groove", "Cherry Red", "Let Me In Your Life", and "You & Me Together".

SethGeorge Sprott 1894 to 1975 ... Book
Jonathan Cape (UK), 2010. New Copy ... $1.99 22.00
One of our favorite books from Canadian cartoonist Seth – just the sort of special, individual story that's so well-suited to his artwork – presented here in a wonderful format throughout! The book tells the tale of TV host George Sprott – but in a way that weaves together shorter stories and individual moments from both Sprott's live, and recollections from some of his (ficticious) contemporaries – an approach that's almost in the territory of Chris Ware's presentation, but with a lot more warmth, and that sublime graphic style that Seth has adapted from midcentury cartooning, and made completely his own. Most parts of the book are in striking two-tone color, and the book even has a few fold-out pages that are especially nice! Book

✨✧ Natasha AgramaHeart Of Infinite Change ... CD
Alpha Pup/World Galaxy, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic young jazz singer, and one who really has her own style very firmly in place – one of those rare talents that comes along once in a blue moon, and makes us instantly sit up and go "wow", right after hearing just a few notes! Natasha Agrama is steeped in many of the best jazz traditions, but wraps them up all into a unique strand that instantly makes her music very special, and very personal – definitely jazz vocals at the core, but with lots of contemporary inflections and wonderful instrumentation – served up by a mix of classic and present talents who include Ronald Bruner on drums, Thundercat on bass, George Duke on Fender Rhodes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Austin Peralta on piano and Rhodes. The set begins with a wonderful take on Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus", then rolls into a great update of Mingus' "Goodbye Porkpie Hat", before taking on Bilal's "All Matter", and transforming older standards "Lover Man", "I Wonder What Became Of Me", and "In A Sentimental Mood".

✨✧ Lee MorganProcrastinator (2LP set) ... LP
Blue Note, 1967/1969. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 fantastic unreleased sets by Lee Morgan! The first one later came out under the name The Procrastinator – and it has this really weird sound, which is a combination of Morgan's trumpet, Wayne Shorter's tenor, Herbie Hancock's piano, and Bobby Hutcherson's vibes – the last of which gives the record a uniquely angular quality, and a stark modernist sound that's different from other Morgan albums. Titles include "Dear Sir", "Stopstart", and "Rio". The second set features a sextet with Julian Priester, George Coleman, Harold Mabern, and Walter Booker – on tracks that are equally great, and entitled "Free Flow", "Mr Johnson", "The Stroker", "Uncle Rough", and "Untitled Boogaloo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ National LampoonRadio Dinner ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the classic days of the National Lampoon Radio Hour – a really wonderful show that ran on FM radio, and parodied many of the ideals and themes of the post-hippie generation! The work here is done in an underground hip mode that would show up more strongly in the mainstream on Saturday Night Live a few years later – and the only big name in the cast for this record is Christopher Guest, although the set does include a few surprise appearances by Melissa Manchester. Titles include "Concert In Bangla Desh", "Those Fabulous Sixties", "Clue Number Five", "Deteriorata", "Catch It & You Keep It", "Pigeons", and "Magical Misery Tour". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat AdderleyDouble Exposure ... LP
Prestige, 1975. Sealed ... $24.99
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

Don Burrows QuartetAt The Sydney Opera House ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A record that really shows off the strengths of the Australian jazz scene in the 70s – so much so, it was one of that nation's biggest jazz records of the decade, and also got a fair bit of global circulation too! The album's billed to reedman Don Burrows – who's a bit like his nation's Stan Getz at times, but also can handle flute and clarinet as well – with currents that seem to rival the best of Herbie Mann, Paul Horn, or Jimmy Giuffre, depending on the setting. But the album's also got some equally important work on guitar from George Golla – Don's key partner for many years, and a player who can work these open colors on his instrument that sometimes rival Wes Montgomery, but also get a bit funkier too – all modes that he gets to show off here on the album's range of long tracks. The quartet also features Ed Gason on bass and Laurie Thompson on drums – and titles include "Yesterdays", "Sweet Emma", "The Gentle Rain", "Velhos Tempos", and "Maybe Today". CD

Gary BurtonSomething's Coming/Groovy Sound Of Music/Time Machine ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1964/1965/1966. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of excellent Gary Burton albums from the 60s – collected together in a single set! Something's Coming is the launch of vibist Gary Burton as a leader – a force in jazz that would continue strongly for decades to come! At the time of the record, Burton had already been making waves as a session player on the Nashville scene – where RCA had some especially strong ears – but he's launched here in a mode that's quite far from those roots, and already filled with those modern, chromatic modes that would have Burton pushing the sound of the vibes forward strongly throughout his career – even on an early record like this! The group is very like-minded, and well-chosen – players who are spacious and modern, but never too much so – a quartet with Jim Hall on guitar, Chuck Israels on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Melanie", "Careful", "Six Improvisatory Sketches", "Something's Coming", and "Little Girl Blue". Next up is a very cool take on the music of Sound Of Music – handled with some help from arranger Gary McFarland, in a way that really unlocks the modal potentials of the tunes! As you might expect from the revolutionary vibist Gary Burton, the approach here is quite different than the usual jazz album of Broadway material – and instead, both Burton and McFarland do a heck of a lot to open up the coolest potential of the songs – as they bring in other hip players who include Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Phil Woods on alto, Joe Puma on guitar, and Steve Swallow on bass. Titles include "An Ordinary Couple", "Sixteen Going On Seventeen", "Do Re Mi", "Edelweiss", and a great take on "My Favorite Things". Time Machine is filled with beautiful sounds from Gary Burton – a seminal 60s session that really has the vibist coming into his own, and finding that new path towards musical expression that would flower even more strongly in the 70s! The album has Burton really strengthening up his sense of chrome – matching the boldness of other important 60s vibes players on the rise – like Karel Velebny or Bobby Hutcherson – but also working this really special magic in the way he lets each note resonate in the air – often with a much longer decay on the sound than the actual moment of its creation! Burton also plays a bit of piano on the record, overdubbed with his vibes – but in a way that's quite different than the vibes/piano combo of earlier acts – like the MJQ, or George Shearing Quintet – thanks to work from Steve Swallow on bass and Larry Bunker on percussion. Tracks include "Six Nix Quix Flix", "The Sunset Bell", "Deluge", "Chega De Saudade", and "Falling Grace". CD

✨✧ Doug CarnSpirit Of The New Land ... LP
Black Jazz, 1972. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Plenty of spirit, and plenty of soul – a 70s classic from organist Doug Carn, and a record that took his instrument, and jazz in general, to a whole new level for the decade! Carn's got this burning, righteous quality on his keys – a vibe that certainly owes something to Larry Young, but also takes off even further – working in a spiritual ensemble that also features his wife Jean Carn on vocals – sounding way more like a righteous jazz singer than on her later soul sides for Philly International! Other players are great, too – and include Charles Tolliver on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, George Harper on tenor and soprano sax, Buster Williams on bass, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums. Tracks include "New Moon", "Trance Dance", "My Spirit", "Blue In Green", and "Arise & Shine". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label Quadraphonic promo pressing. Cover has a promo sticker, index label, some edge wear, and a small center split on the top seam.)
