✨✧ MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used ... Temporarily 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".

(Missing the booklet. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Aretha FranklinLaughing On The Outside ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hey, we love this record! It's jazzy, and not at all like Aretha's soul sides for Atlantic – but Aretha's vocals sound wonderful on the record, in a completely different way than on later albums. Arrangements are by Robert Mersey, and they've got a feel that's similar to some of the classic Ray Charles large group recordings for ABC – with slightly churchy backings behind the lead vocals, which are right out front in the set, and almost warmer than on other albums. Aretha sings mellow versions of standards like "Skylark", "For All We Know", "Until The Real Thing Comes Along", and "Where Are You?" – plus the obscure "Mr Ugly". LP, Vinyl record album

Louis ArmstrongSatchmo At Pasadena ... LP
Decca, 1951. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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- ... $19.99
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".

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
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 ring & edge wear.)

Don & StevieDon & Stevie (UK pressing) ... LP
Finders Keepers, Late 60s. Sealed ... $11.99
Darkly beautiful sounds from the duo of Don & Stevie Gere – a husband and wife who work here with a style that's folksy, but a bit spooky too – possibly due to the fact that the music within was recorded in their California home, and never issued for years! There's a deeply personal feel to the songs here – almost like we're peeking in on the intimacy of the couple, but as they try to put together a message to reach outside of their home too – themes of their own love mixed with greater societal issues – later taken up as some of the songs were reworked by other artists like David Gates, Curt Boettcher, and Waddy Wachtel. Yet there's an innocence to these original recordings that's really mindblowing – rescued from oblivion on aging acetates, and represented here on cuts that include "Sweet Sugar", "Keep An Eye On You", "Another Blue Day", "What Do You Think Of Me", "Kindly", and "Tell Me Now".

EnvironmentsEnvironments–Disc 2 ... LP
Atlantic, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
This one's got a sticker that says "A Decongestant for the Mind", and offers one side of "Tintinnabulation" (contemplative sound, the label reads), and one side of "Dawn at New Hope, Penn". We once played that side over the radio during the course of a show and fooled people into thinking we were broadcasting from an outside location. LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetThird Stream Music ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $6.99
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

✨✧ Baden PowellLe Monde Musical De Baden Powell Vol 2 ... LP
Barclay (France), 1963. Very Good+ ... $23.99
Some of the first recordings done by Baden Powell outside of Brazil – and already an indication that his work with the European scene was a very good thing! The record has Powell upfront on guitar and vocals, but working with these great arrangements from arranger/trumpeter Ivan Jullien – who plays on the record in a small combo that features other percussion, and some really great flute from Raymond Guiot! The mix of flute with Baden's bossa elements is very nice – and really prefaces some later experiments that would have Powell bringing even more European elements to his music. The overall vibe is a great precursor to Baden's later work for MPS – and titles include "Lapinha", "Aria", "Formosa", "Tres Historias", "Martinia", "Ao Meu Amigo Pedro Santos", and "Lemanja".

Jimmy RushingIf This Ain't The Blues ... LP
Vanguard, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Killer rootsy blues from Jimmy Rushing – cut in a manner that's almost better than his original recordings! The session was done for Vanguard with a very trad sound, and with backing by great swing-era players like Buddy Tate, Clarence Johnson, Emmett Berry, and Vick Dickenson. Jimmy's voice is as great as ever – and tracks include "My Friend Mr. Blues", "Dinah", "Oh Love", "Sometimes I Think I Do", and "Take Me With You Baby". Great cover, too – with an image of Jimmy sitting outside of some old deli! LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Smith/Aaron SachsJazzville Vol 3 ... LP
Dawn, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
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

VariousBlack Fire New Spirits – Deep & Radical Jazz In The USA 1957 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. Sealed ... $24.99
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

✨✧ Beastie BoysCheck Your Head ... LP
Grand Royal, 1992. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If Paul's Boutique was the Beasties' psychedelic hip hop Sgt Peppers, then Check Your Head is their White Album – a raw, stylistically sprawling, yet always connected batch of live instrumentation – backing rhymes that range from stream of consciousness to expertly written. Check Your Head is also their first outing without the guidance of outside producers, though the trio did bring in a host of regular collaborators like Money Mark and Mario Caldato Jr, who work as well with the Boys as ever. It's stunning how far The Beastie Boys grew creatively over their first few albums, and this point is pretty close to perfection! Titles include "Jimmy James", "Pass The Mic", "Gratitude", "Finger Lickin' Good", "So Whatcha Want", "Time For Livin'", "Something's Got To Give", "Groove Holmes" and "Professor Booty".

(Grand Royal reissue from 1998.)

✨✧ Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic (Buddah pressing) ... LP
Buddah, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fever TreeFever Tree ... LP
Uni, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Egberto GismontiDanca Dos Escravos ... LP
ECM, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No keyboards, no percussion, no other instrumentation at all – just acoustic guitar from the great Egberto Gismonti, but used at a tremendously creative level! The songs are loose and free – never outside, but also not bossa or samba either – always those new paths forward that Egberto brought to his music, heard here in a wonderfully unadorned setting that allows us to appreciate his ideas more than ever! And despite the focus on solo instrumentation, the set's incredibly dynamic – hardly a mellow affair at all, and instead filled with fire and freedom throughout – all in ways that are light years past any previous guitar conceptions from Span, Brazil, or other scenes. Titles include "2 Violes", "Danca Dos Escravos", "Lundu", "Alegrinho", and "Salvador". LP, Vinyl record album

A great little album from Hag's golden era for Capitol! Keep Movin' On falls a little outside his classic work, but it's aged well, and is a great batch of Haggard originals with a running ramblin' theme. Tracks include "Movin' On", "Life's Like Poetry", "September In Miami", "Here In Frisco", "Always Wanting You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

We're not normally the biggest Kurtis Blow fans, but outside of his early singles, this LP features some of our favorite Kurtis Blow tracks. The production is similar to that big beat Lynn Drum/DMX style that the 1983-85 Profile artists used. With "8 Million Stories" – featuring Run-DMC, "AJ Scratch"– featuring the oft-sampled "Up in the Bronx where the people are fresh...", "Basketball" – about all the NBA stars of the time, "Ego Trip" and more.

✨✧ Wolfgang LackerschmidMallet Connection ... LP
Plane (Germany), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A relatively laidback set from German vibist Wolfgang Lackerschmid – one that features instrumentation that includes vibes, trumpet, percussion, saxes, and bass. The overall sound's almost a bit ECM – in that there's a lot of building in sound over longish tracks, but never as much direct rhythm or pulse. One track goes a bit outside, but overall things are more moody and mellow. Titles include "Olenka", "Mystery Movie", "Relaxin Rain", and "Miss B". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Phil OchsPleasure Of The Harbor ... LP
A&M, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Was there a more tragic figure in the 60s scene than Phil Ochs? Perhaps, but this is still a wonderful piece of his odd and sad career, a great portrait with his unrelenting political stance still in place, though not as raw as some of his other LPs. More arranged than any of his other LPs, but not without spare moments, the orchestrations still never get in the way of Ochs' occasionally delicate voice or clutter the picture too much. Eight tunes: "Cross My Heart", "Flower Lady", "Outside Of A Small Circle Of Friends", "I've Had Her", "Miranda", "The Party", "Pleasures Of The Harbor" and "The Crucifixion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sam RiversContours ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant statement of modernist jazz from Sam Rivers – one of his groundbreaking early albums for Blue Note, and one of the most challenging sessions issued by the label during the 60s! The record's a real departure from Rivers' already-great Fuscia Swing Song – with tunes that go farther outside, and a free-thinking approach to rhythm and song structure that's a perfect illustration of 60s "new thing" jazz at its best! The group is top-shelf all the way – a quintet that includes Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Joe Chambers – plus amazing work from Rivers, who manages to effortlessly shift between tenor, flute, and soprano sax for the session. Tracks are long, and with the kind of strange off-kilter arrangements that you'd hear on some of the Jackie McLean or Grachan Moncour Blue Notes from the time – and titles include "Dance Of The Tripedal", "Euterpe", "Point Of Many Returns", and "Melliflous Cacaphony".
