Louis ArmstrongSatchmo At Pasadena ... LP
Decca, 1951. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A cool California concert from Louis Armstrong – surprisingly intimate, despite the setting – and recorded with a less-polished feel than some of his other 50s live dates! There's a relatively spontaneous quality to the music, and the album really helps keep the spirit of the concert intact – offering up snippits of Louis' commentary, and some strong audience response as well. Players include Armstrong on trumpet, Jack Teagarden on trombone, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Earl Hines on piano, Arvell Shaw on bass, and Cozy Cole on drums – and Armstrong sings, and is occasionally joined by Velma Middleton on vocals. Titles include "My Monday Date", "Baby It's Cold Outside", "Star Dust", "The Hucklebuck", "That's A Plenty", and "Just You Just Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BarrettoBarretto Para Bailar (aka Pachanga In Percussion) ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Early work as a leader from Ray Barretto – a set that was originally issued on the Riverside subsidary of Fortissimo – which featured pressings on which the record plays from the inside out! That's right, you put the needle near the center, and the record pulls it towards the edge. This pressing, however, is the "regular" version – and plays from the outside in – and over and above that, this is a just a great record of early 60's Pachanga stuff, played by Ray Barretto with a tight little group. Recorded around the same time as Ray's other Riverside stuff, and with a similar Latin Jazz feel, the recording includes the tracks "Oye Heck", "Los Cueros", "Pachanga Oriental", and "Cumbamba".

Eddie DuranJazz Guitarist ... LP
Fantasy, 1957. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great early album from San Francisco guitarist Eddie Duran – a player who's not that well known outside of his native city, but who's been a key contribution to the SF scene for many many years! On this Fantasy debut, Eddie's got a clean, lean, single-line style that's really great – a way of playing the guitar that nods a bit back towards Charlie Christian, but which also has some of the more sophisticated shadings of the best 50s innovators on the instrument. And although Eddie has appeared on other more Latin-based sets over the years, this album's a mostly straight jazz affair – bits of swing and bop that shift from track to track – played by Eddie with a small group that includes Howie Dudune on tenor and clarinet – on tracks that include "Soon", "Rise N Shine", "Taking Life Easy", "Sugar", "Room With A View", "Why Not", "It Could Happen To You", and "My Inspiration".

Carolyn FranklinChain Reaction ... LP
RCA, 1970. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Proud and loud female soul from Carolyn Franklin – a singer who's every bit as great as her famous sisters Aretha and Erma – heard here on her second outing for RCA! The album's got a bit more sophistication than the first – a style that's still drenched in Franklin's deep soul roots, but which pushes some wider song styles into the mix – at a level that helps Carolyn keep from being a cliched copy of Aretha. Arrangements are by Sonny Sanders, Wade Marcus, and Bert DeCoteux – and Carolyn's vocals are backed by The Sounds of Soul on a number of cuts – a trio of female singers, but one that's a lot harder-hitting than the Sweet Inspirations over at Atlantic. Titles include "Not On The Outside", "Shattered Pride", "You Really Didn't Mean It", "Right On!", "I Ain't Gonna Love Nobody Else", and "Chain Reaction". LP, Vinyl record album

Gang Of FourGang Of Four EP ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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

New Herbie HancockQuartet ... LP
CBS, 1982. Very Good 2LP ... $5.99
Acoustic magic from Herbie Hancock – proof that he wasn't only cutting electro records in the 80s! The set's got a fluid, open feel that's a bit like some of the VSOP Quintet work – although the group here is slightly different, with Hancock on acoustic piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus a young Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – stepping in where Wayne Shorter and Freddie Hubbard left off. The tracks are somewhat sharp-edged and modern, but never in a way that's too outside – more just a continuation of the VSOP mode, with some of the Marsalis love of darker colors and tones. The double-length set has plenty of room for long solos – and titles include "Well You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Clear Ways", "A Quick Sketch", "The Eye Of The Hurricane", "Parade", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

Milt JacksonVibrations ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good+ ... $6.99
While we have never really gone nuts for much of the MJQ's recorded work, Milt Jackson's recordings as a leader outside the group had a more soulful approach than the colder MJQ albums. This set for Atlantic features players like Jimmy Heath and Tommy Flanagan alongside Milt, and has nice buoyant feel throughout, as they run through some nice bop versions of standards and blues. Includes the title track, plus "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Algo Bueno", "Mallets Towards None" and 4 more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has corner wear.)

Mongo SantamariaMr Watermelon Man – La Bamba ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Mongo Santamaria at the height of his Latin Soul years – working on a cool Columbia session titled after an earlier hit, but served up with his new lean sound of the late 60s! The album's got that perfect Santamaria combo from the time – a group that features trumpet and these wonderfully sharp arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – plus very smoking reed work from a young Hubert Laws, wailing away on flute and tenor, and Bobby Capers on alto and baritone – both players who mix jazz and soul instrumental modes, to bring a hell of a lot of feeling to the overall sound of the band – in ways that really get past more familiar use of trumpet or trombone in other Latin combos. The band grooves nicely on original material like "Streak O Lean", "Ricky Tick", "Do It To It", "Fatback", "Coconut Milk", and "Jose Outside" – and they also reprise Mongo's big hit "Watermelon Man". LP, Vinyl record album

SeedsRaw & Alive – The Seeds In Concert – Merlin's Music Box ... LP
GNP, 1968. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from this seminal group, and captures them in a format that really lets them take off! Their studio sessions were always great, but this one's got a special edge from letting all the instruments work together in the same space at once, with no edits or dubs. The core combo sounds wonderful – searing guitar, trippy keyboard lines, and all the sneering vocals the young Sky Saxon can muster – served up over tracks that include "Mr. Farmer", "No Escape", "Satisfy You", "Night Time Girl", "Up In Her Room", "Gypsy Plays His Drums", "Mumble And Bumble", "Forest Outside Your Door", "900 Million People Daily All Making Love", and "Pushin' Too Hard".

Gene ShawDebut in Blues ... LP
Chess, 1960/1984. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
Beautiful! Gene Shaw's one of the most overlooked talents in jazz from this era – and this is one of his greatest albums! After running away from Mingus after the Tijuana Moods sessions (Mingus threatened to kill him), trumpeter Clarence Shaw moved to Chicago, started using his middle name of "Gene", and started working with a bunch of musicians that were all geniuses in playing and composition, but who never really made a name for themselves outside of the city. This rare Argo album captures that scene perfectly, and features Shaw's trumpet on 8 fantastic original tracks – deftly shifting between modernism and soul jazz, in a mode that's incredibly sophisticated for the time. Many tracks are written by Jim Taylor, the excellent young pianist in Shaw's group – and tracks include "Debut In Blues", "Karachi", "The Gentle Princess", "Travelog", "Not Too Cool", and "Who Knows".

(Chess 80s pressing.)

Archie SheppWay Ahead ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $34.99
Definitely the way ahead in jazz – back in the 60s, and well into the 21st Century too! Archie Shepp's in prime form here – working with a sextet that's awash in avant freedoms, but which always shows a great sense of restraint – just the right power gained from the new modes of jazz expression, as the players dance together beautifully on a razor's edge of personal creativity and ensemble exploration. Players here include Grachan Moncur on trombone, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Beaver Harris and Roy Haynes on drums – and the album also features the first piano player on most of the Shepp albums on Impulse – Walter Davis Jr, making a rare outside appearance with the group! Titles include the classic track "Frankenstein", plus "Fiesta", "Damn If I Know (The Stroller)", and "Sophisticated Lady" – all nice and long! LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some waviness and flaking due to moisture with some stains and peeled spots from a stuck gatefold.)

Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 ... LP
Actuel (France), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich tapestry of sound, but with less of the structuring righteous concepts of some of Archie's other work – especially his sides for Impulse. Shepp had really been experiencing some new freedoms on the French scene of the late 60s – even more so than in the US avant outfield – and you can definitely hear him taking flight here, with a like-minded group of players that includes Clifford Thornton on trombone and shenai, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Joseph Dujean on guitar, Beb Guerin on bass, and Claud Delcloo on drums. This first part of the live set features one long track – "The Early Bird" – a slow building number that goes increasingly outside as it progresses, featuring some very over the top solo work from Shepp, who also plays a bit of piano on the set! LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

Charlie Smith/Aaron SachsJazzville Vol 3 ... LP
Dawn, Late 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the interesting Jazzville sides issued on the Dawn label, highlighting small cobos that fell a little outside the spotlight of some of the larger jazz oriented labels of the day, but worthy of far more than sidebar status. This set is divided in two like the ohers in the series, devoting one side of the LP to each of two artists. Charlie Smith's trio heads up side one, with drummer Charlie leading a tight trio featuring Hank Jones on piano and Oscar Pettiford on bass through crisp renditions of standards like "Hae You Met Miss Jones", "Body & Soul" and "Flying Home", plus Jones' "Blues For Sal". Side two features a larger group, showcasing reedman Aaron Sachs sextet with Dick Garcia, Osie Johnson, Aaron Bell, Joe Roland and Jimmie Cleveland. The deliver nice laidback takes on numbers that include "Aaron's Blues", "You're My Thrill", "Platter Pie", "Why Shouldn't I" and "Ah! The Pain". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small bit of tape on the top seam, and a number in the corner.)

New Gato BarbieriUnder Fire ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Great work from Gato – filled with Latin rhythm influences forged on his Impulse sessions of the same time, plus some nice spiritual blowing in the Pharoah Sanders tradition in which he was linked in the immediate post-Coltrane years. Airto and Mtume are on percussion on most tracks, and Lonnie Liston Smith plays some pretty outside piano on the set. All tracks are long, and titles include "El Parana", "Antonico", "El Sertao", and "Maria Domingas". LP, Vinyl record album

WMOT, 1981. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Warmly wonderful soul from Brandi Wells – a singer with a great talent for midtempo and slow-stepping groovers – as you'll hear on some of the key tracks in this set! The album's a nice batch of later Philly soul – with sophisticated arrangements from Dexter Wansel that bring in some spacey touches on some of the gentler tracks – creating a seductive sound and nice degree of depth, showing Brandi to be a singer who goes way beyond just catchy club tracks. Titles include "Fantasy", "I Hate To See You Go", "Watch Out", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "I Love You", "You Are My Life", "Standing On The Outside", and "Falling In Love".

We're not certain where this falls in the order of YMO Japanese releases, but it's definitely a bit after their stunning US debut, and we're pretty certain never released outside Japan. A bit more stripped down, but still amazing electro pop from some of the true originators of the genre. 10 numbers in all, including "Pure Jam", "Neve Tanz", "Stairs", "Seoul Music", "Light In Darkness", "Taiso", "Gradated Gaes", "Key", "Prologue" and "Epilogue".

New Gato BarbieriMasters Of Jazz Vol 9 – Gato Barbieri (Fenix/Under Fire) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/RCA (Germany), 1971. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of Gato Barbieri albums from the Flying Dutchman label – back to back on a German collection from the late 70s! First up is the great album Fenix – the record's neither too out, nor too poppy – and it has Barbieri playing with that incredible raspy tone – and working over modal grooves laid down by a hip group that includes Lonnie Liston Smith on acoustic and electric pianos, Ron Carter on bass, Lennie White on drums, and additional percussion on most tracks. The cuts have a Latin finish to them, but they've also got a strongly pronounced soul jazz vibe – something that's missing from lots of Gato's other work, and which feels a lot here like some of Pharoah Sander's best work for Impulse! Titles include "Tupac Amaru", "Bahia", "Falsa Bahiana", "El Dia Que Me Quieras", "El Arriero" and "Carnavalito". Next is the album Under Fire – great work from Gato – filled with Latin rhythm influences forged on his Impulse sessions of the same time, plus some nice spiritual blowing in the Pharoah Sanders tradition in which he was linked in the immediate post-Coltrane years. Airto and Mtume are on percussion on most tracks, and Lonnie Liston Smith plays some pretty outside piano on the set.

Mercury, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Brit easy bandleader John Gregory – an assortment of 70s police and crime themes, played by a big band with a nice soundtrack-y finish! Nearly all the tunes are uptempo, and the feel of the record is very much in the same vein as Henry Mancini's Cop Show Themes album – although perhaps with a bit less electronics. Titles include "Theme From SWAT", "Harry O", "Streets Of San Francisco", "Cannon", "Rockford Files", "Kojak", "McCloud", "Police Woman", and "Six-Million Dollar Man". LP, Vinyl record album

New Love UnlimitedUnder The Influence Of Love Unlimited ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great stuff from the girls who first put Barry White on the map! The record is the group's second – and by this point, Barry had developed that tight snapping drum sound that made his orchestral albums work so well. You'll hear it to good effect on most songs on the LP, which have a great groove that's in the best Barry White mode of the 70s – but which kind of dominates the girls' vocals a bit. Not that anyone should complain that much, as it's the overall package that's always made Barry's albums sound so great – but we do wonder how the group felt when they had to sit out the first track, which was the instrumental "Love's Theme", a song that went onto become Barry's biggest song ever, and which probably sold the album a lot more than the vocal tracks. Still, you can hardly detect a note of disharmony – and the album soars from track to track, through titles like "Under The Influence Of Love", "Say It Again", "Yes, We Finally Made It", and "It May Be Winter Outside". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some moderate wear.)

Circuit RiderCircuit Rider ... LP
Circuit Rider, 1980. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
Dark and moody folk-psych from the American underground – a record once included on a list of "Top Ten Records Most Likely To Be Owned By A Serial Killer"! We're not sure if the set's as nasty as that might imply – as there's actually a heartfelt, almost earnest quality to the vocals – a slightly bluesy undercurrent, mixed with acoustic and electric guitar riffs – and almost spoken at times – or maybe not spoken, kind of "exclaimed" – as if the lyrics were coming to singer Thorn Oehrig right at the time he was recording them! All this makes for a great sense of reflection on the record – quite different than the posturing you might normally get on such a record – especially given that some of the tunes get really tripped out, with some really weird guitar parts. The set was recorded in 1980, but really feels like some lost biker psyche outsider set from the late 60s or early 70s – with heavy themes of drugs, death, and loneliness – all recorded with a rough-edged quality that further underscores the feelings in the music. Titles include "Limousine Ride", "Billy Bad Billy", "Red Dog", "Old Charlie Polecat", "Old Time Feeling", "How Long", and "Just For Today". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited version pressed up with heavy vinyl and cover!)
