✨✧ MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really tremendous work from Mandrill – an instant funky classic, and a set that has the group furthering the sublime sound they crafted on their seminal Composite Truth! The record has all these wonderful twists and turns – not just the usual 70s funky styles, but inflections from a globe's worth of influences – all filtered down and used here in fresh new ways to really keep the sound interesting – with a tightness that's never slick, and which instead has this really visionary approach that may well top some of Mandrill's higher-charting contemporaries! Instrumentation has plenty of jazz inflections, which really keeps things interesting – and the percussion has so many different styles going on, it's hard to keep track! Titles include the massive sample cut "Fat City Strut" – plus "Never Die", "Two Sisters Of Mystery", "She Ain't Lookin Too Tough", "Interlude", "Mango Meat", "Afrikus Retrospectus", and "Aspiration Flame".

Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
The Beatles had Abbey Road – and Booker T & The MGs had McLemore Ave, the main street running outside the Stax studios, and a fitting title for the album that has them playing tunes from The Beatles' incredible Abbey Road album. If you've ever thought that Abbey Road was a soft-rock lowpoint in the Beatles' career, consider how many soul and jazz artists either covered the whole album, performed songs from it, or referenced it in their album covers. This little gem is proof that the compositions already had a life of their own within a short time of the release of the record – as Book and crew take the Beatles' tunes to whole new heights, working them together into a complicated batch of grooves that really pushes past their earlier work on Stax. Who knows, perhaps The Beatles were just the kick that Book needed – we can't ever tell the whole story, but we can say that the record marks a strong turning point for the group, and is well worth having for a variety of reasons. Titles include "The End", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Because", "I Want You/She's So Heavy", and "Polythene Pam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Bobby Bradford with John Stevens & The SpontaneousBobby Bradford With John Stevens & The Spontaneous Music Ensemble – Vol 1 ... LP
Nessa, 1971/1980. Sealed ... $19.99
An unlikely, but amazing meeting of the avant jazz minds – a classic set that has LA trumpeter Bobby Bradford coming into play with the UK Spontaneous Music Ensemble, led by drummer John Stevens! The material was recorded, almost spontaneously, on a holiday trip Bradford made to London in 1971 – but the record's become an enduring classic, thanks to the creative energy of the players involved, and the dynamic quality of the improvisations in the studio! Bradford's trumpet sounds quite different here than in his better-known work of the time with reedman John Carter – much more outside and forceful, really set loose in the company of Stevens' group – which, in this incarnation, includes Trevor Watts on alto and soprano sax, Bob Norden on trombone, Ron Herman on bass, and Julie Tippetts on guitar and a bit of voice. Titles include "His Majesty Louis", "Bridget's Mother", and "Room 408". LP, Vinyl record album

BrethrenBrethren (original cover) ... LP
Tiffany, Early 70s. Very Good ... $24.99
A surprisingly great bit of funky rock – ostensibly a redneck country-styled session overall, but with some moments that really jam nicely! Our favorite track is the drum-heavy instrumental "Success Band Oil" – but the vocal cut "Outside Love" also has a great break at the beginning – and it's no surprise that the record was sampled by Lord Finesse and the Beatminerz.

✨✧ Chick Corea/David Holland/Barry AltschulARC ... LP
ECM, 1971. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Some of the most outside work ever recorded by Chick Corea – a great session from the post-Circle trio that included Barry Altschul on percussion and Dave Holland on bass! The sound here is in a vast space of dark corners, sharp edges, and some slightly warmer moments – similar to some of Chick's other work as a leader before this album, but a bit more stark overall. Although listed with writing credits, most titles have a strongly improvised feel – quite free, especially the piano parts! Titles include "Ballad For Tillie", "Nefertitti", "Vedana", "Thanatos", and "Games". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo stamp and some wear.)

Fever TreeFever Tree ... LP
Uni/Sundazed, 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Late 60s psych from Texas – the self-titled set from Fever Tree – which finds group adapting some outside penned tunes of the day nicely into the good natured psychedelic groove. The arrangements are what make the group special, rolling from soaring pop sounds into harder edged TX school of psychedelia, and back again. Instrumentation includes the kind of core rock sound with keys, harp, flute, cello and more – and the record even sports some string & horn arrangements by David Angel and Gene Page! Titles include "Imitation Situation 1", "Where Do You Go?", "Return Of The Native", "Man Who Paints The Pictures", "The Sun Also Rises", "Unlock My Door", "Come With Me" and more.

✨✧ Gang Of FourGang Of Four EP ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $13.99
This one's actually the group's sort of second album – at least in the US – with 4 tracks that really follow nicely in the feel of Entertainment! Tracks were recorded between 1978 and 1980 – and all have a nice raw guitar sound. Includes the massive "Armalite Rifle", plus "He'd Send In The Army", "Outside The Trains Don't Run On Time", and "It's Her Factory". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a few light creases.)

✨✧ Enoch LightSpaced Out ... LP
Project 3, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $28.99
Quite possibly the grooviest album ever from Enoch Light – a trippy blend of many 60s styles, all put together with sublime Project 3 Sound! The album's billed as featuring "exploratory trips through the music of Bach, Bacharach, the Beatles – Integrating the Moog, the Guitar Scene, Electronic Harpsichord, Flugelhorns, etc" – and it definitely lives up to that bill, given the range of songs included! Rhythms are strong, and the use of sweetly compressed horn parts is very much in an A&M mode – as is the backing vocals, which are light and wonderful – a bit like Free Design, but more towards the territory of Singers Unlimited, although even groovier. The Beatles and Bacharach material is especially great – but even the Bach tunes come out wonderfully, given that most are re-arranged with a hip 60s soundtrack sort of groove – classical roots, but contemporary execution – especially when there's a bit of moog or electric harpsichord. Titles include "Walk On By", "Norweigan Wood", "What The World Needs Now", "Get Back", "Bond Street", "Petite Paulette", "My Silent Song", and "Lover's Concerto". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light stain on one corner, hardly visible outside the gatefold.)

Little Anthony & The ImperialsBest Of Little Anthony & The Imperials ... LP
Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. Titles include "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Our Song", "Get Out Of My Life", and "Going Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetThird Stream Music ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
A seminal album that defined the fresh sound of a whole new generation in jazz – that "third stream" movement that was different from the cool jazz of the west coast, and the fire of New York! The style here follows that same mix of jazz and higher-concept elements you'd hear on other Modern Jazz Quartet albums for Atlantic – but the music is expanded here with some great help from outside parties too. The Jimmy Giuffre trio join the quartet on most of side one – adding in Jimmy's snakey clarinet and Jim Hall's fluid guitar lines for a really fresh take on the MJQ groove. The remainder of the album brings in the Beaux Arts String Quartet – who shade in the mix of vibes and piano with these dark strains that are really beautiful – and bring even more drama than usual to the music. Titles include "Da Capo", "Fine", "Exposure", "Sketch", and "Conversation". LP, Vinyl record album
(French pressing, with all French titles. Cover has some wear.)

Mongo SantamariaUp From The Roots ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $12.99
A really surprising turn in the career of Mongo Santamaria – especially after a run of successful mainstream Latin sides for Columbia and Atlantic! The album's definitely "up from the roots", and features Mongo in a percussion-heavy exploration of older Afro-Cuban rhythms – served up here in really traditional modes, with a much more folksy sound than any of his other work for the time. Most instrumentation on side one is from percussion – but as the record goes on, the "history" of Latin music begins to seep in – with some great jazz lines from players who include Felix Watkins on flute, Carter Jefferson on tenor and soprano saxes, and Jon Faddis on trumpet – plus a bit of keyboards from Eddie Martinez. Neal Creque, Eddy Martinez, and Marty Sheller all help out on arrangement as the sound builds through the set – so by the end the record is nice and funky, and filled with plenty of soul! Titles include "Little Angel", "Sofrito", "Forked Tongue", "Jose Outside", "Para Ti", and "Conga, Bata, y Chequere". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John SurmanWestering Home ... LP
Island, 1972. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the most beautifully melodic albums ever from British reedman John Surman – a session that's almost cut in the same mode as Lol Coxhill's early 70s sides for Virgin, with Surman soloing strongly in the lead on a variety of saxes, while sparer sounds and notes echo out in the background! Surman's work on any chosen horn on the record is brilliant – free, but never too out – and wonderfully concerned with tone and sound. There's a really exploratory nature to the record – but one that's never mis-directed or lost. Surman's got a personal presence that's really amazing, and almost a level of soul that's made the record a favorite of ours for years! Titles include "Walrus", "The Druid", "Outside The Scorpion", "Mock Orange", and "Whirligig". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing.)

Horace TapscottTapscott Sessions Vol 4 ... LP
Nimbus, 1982. Sealed ... $19.99
A magical set of solo piano work by Horace Tapscott – one of the few players who can hold our ear so strongly in such a setting! The album features original tunes by Tapscott, Arthur Blythe, and Louis Spears – spun out in a soulfully elliptical style that manages to be exploratory without ever needing to go too far outside. As with others in this series, the recording quality is excellent – and really resonates with the strength of the piano work! Titles include "A Dress For Renee", "Shades Of Soweto", "Whit", "The Hero's Last Dance", and "Toward The Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album

Jukka TolonenTolonen ... LP
Janus, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
Heavy jamming fusion from Finnish guitarist Jukka Tolonen – long tracks with mostly that hard full-on sound that European players were pretty big on at the time, touched with a few lighter tracks that have a more spacious approach! The album was Tolonen's first as a leader, and it's a really strong debut that got him a fair bit of attention – even on this side of the Atlantic – and although later efforts never crossed over as big outside his native Finland, there's a real promise here, and a sound that's tight without being smooth or slick – a mode that should have made Tolonen one of the guitar jazz heroes of the 70s. Jukka's got a pretty rhythmic sound overall – keeping things choppy, although not necessarily that funky – and jamming with instrumentation that includes soprano sax, bass, and drums. Titles include "Mountains", "Wanderland", "Last Night", "Ramblin", and "Elements – Earth Fire Water Air". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan Tracey & Keith TippettTNT ... LP
Emanem, 1976. Near Mint- ... $23.99
Pretty free stuff from the team of Stan Tracey and Keith Tippett – both stretching out in their new freedoms of the 70s! The players are a lot more outside and experimental than in previous studio work – especially their initial modernist moments from the 60s – and the tracks here are quite long and open, with a fair bit of interplay between the keyboards. Titles include "Skipover", "Dance 1", "TNT", and "Two Way Stretch". LP, Vinyl record album

29th Street Saxophone QuartetWatch Your Step ... LP
New Note, 1985. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A great set by one of the lesser-known sax quartets of the 80s – an ensemble that featured Bobby Watson and Ed Jackson on alto sax, Rich Rothenberg on tenor, and Jim Hartog on baritone – all blowing in a mix of modern and soulful styles, very much in the spirit of the more famous World Sax Quartet. The overall approach here is a bit looser, and freer – but still a good mix of inside and outside playing, in a style that shows that the group was taking seriously the full range of the jazz group, including rhythm, when playing with all saxes. Titles include "KCQ", "Hotel De Funk", "Lafiya", and "TPT". LP, Vinyl record album

George WallingtonJazz For The Carriage Trade ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all players that help push the record with a tremendous amount of hardbop and modern jazz energy! Byrd and Woods are at their best youthful prime on the set – and the longish tracks really give both artists room to stretch out and show off their talents! Titles include "Foster Dulles", "Together We Wail", "Our Delight", and "But George". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing.)

Michael WhiteLand Of Spirit & Light ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
Beautiful work from Michael White – one of the few musicians who can actually make us love the sound of the violin in jazz! White's working here in a style that's very much in line with some of the post-Coltrane spiritual soul jazz in Impulse in the early 70s – an approach that's free-thinking, yet never as far outside as some of the avant work on the label during the 60s. Instead, there's a gentle, almost contemplative groove here – one that has echoes of some of Alice Coltrane's more meditative recordings, yet which also breaks out with some of the more modal jazz of Michael White's roots. Players on the album include Prince Lasha on reeds, Ed Kelly on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Kenneth Nash on percussion – and the album's filled with organic textures and beautifully flowing grooves! Titles include the beautiful "Land Of Spirit & Light" suite in three parts, plus "Fatima's Garden", "Fiesta Dominical", "O Ancient One" and "Lament (Mankind)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label ABC/Impulse pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Stevie WonderJourney Through The Secret Life Of Plants ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on the set – often in a way that has his keyboards taking center stage in little symphonies of soul that unfold like the petals of a flower in the morning sun – and which stand out as quite different from some of his vocal work, marking him as a talented electronic musician in his own right. Many tracks do have lyrics, too – often with themes of growing, seeding, and other garden metaphors that are easily translated to the human experience. Titles include "Secret Life Of Plants", "Outside My Window", "A Seed's A Star", "Race Babbling", "Black Orchid", "Send One Your Love", "Tree", "Come Back As A Flower", and "Ai No Sono". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the braille cover, with some moderate wear.)

Epic, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent live set by the Jazz Messengers – recorded in Paris in 1958, but with a hard heavy groove that's right up there with their best Blue Note work. The group at this time – Blakey, Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Jymie Merritt – plays hard, heavy, and straight ahead, with no other interference from outside players – and the track list is a batch of classic Jazz Messenger standards, stretched out a bit longer than usual, with plenty of solo space! Titles include "Moanin", "Justice", "Are You Real", and "I Remember Clifford". LP, Vinyl record album
