Aretha FranklinLaughing On The Outside ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Good+ ... $4.99
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
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ Chico FreemanOutside Within ... LP
India Navigation, 1981. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great, expansive quartet side from Chico Freeman, where he's supported by John Hicks, Cecil McBee and Jack DeJohnette. Freeman's playing and writing has always fused his journeyman years with the AACM with the soulful, full-toned south side approach of his father, Von Freeman, and a very post-Coltrane spirituality, and he really stretches out nicely on this set. The first side of the album is nice lengthy number, "Undercurrent" and the second side has 3 more succinct numbers, "The Search", "Luna" and "Ascent". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffOutside Looking In ... LP
LC, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Jimmy hits a bit of a CTI groove here – working with larger backings from Brad Baker, but still in a style that's got a heck of a lot of soul, despite the smoothness! There's plenty of great space for solo work on the set, and Jimmy Ponder is especially nice in the format – hitting some warmly chromatic solos that still have plenty of invention too – and which sound very sweet alongside Jimmy's work on organ and keyboards. Other soloists include Hank Crawford and Eddie Daniels, and titles include the funky moogy classic "Tapioca", plus "Outside Looking In", "Dust Pan", "Walkin Willie", "Midnight Boogie", and "Playland". LP, Vinyl record album

BerioSinfonia – Swingle Singers/Berio/NY Philharmonic ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
The original recording of Berio's dark vocal piece Sinfonia, and one of the pivotal moments when the Swingle Singers switched from doing jazzy versions of classical tunes to work that was more avant garde. Their high level of talent is apparent in this recording, and they give Berio's work a nice haunting sound, with a feel that's even spookier because you sort of recognize them as a pop group, but one that's gone a little crazy here. Cool stuff, and with a good set of notes. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a tape along the seams and rips outside and inside the gatefold from the removal of old stickers.)

Ray Charles & Betty CarterRay Charles & Betty Carter ... LP
ABC, 1961. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful. Betty's high voice works well with Ray's raspy low one – especially on their classic duet version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Other tracks include "For All We Know", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "Side By Side", and "You & I". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy black label pressing.)

CircleCircle 2 – Gathering ... LP
Sony (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- ... $49.99
One of the rare few albums recorded by the short-lived, but important avant group Circle – a masterful meeting of talents that featured Anthony Braxton on reeds, Chick Corea on piano, David Holland on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums – plus all players on assorted percussion! The feel here is in a very AACM mode – organically experimental with space and sound texture, and not nearly as academic as some of Corea's outside trio material from the same period. The album features one long piece – "Gathering (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great Japanese pressing – with original obi!)

Stanley ClarkeHideaway ... LP
Epic, 1986. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Hideaway makes a move towards more delicate synth soul for Clarke – who assembles an impressive guest list that includes Stanley Jordan, Herbie Hancock and Stewart Copeland. Titles include a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed", plus "My Love, Her Inspiration", "Where Do We Go", "Old Friends" and "When It's Cold Outside". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneLove Supreme ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $49.99
Maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was already breaking down plenty of boundaries before Love Supreme – but he knocked it out of the park for the album – which is a full-length suite of spiritual expression, one that gives even greater focus and message to Coltrane's long-spiralling style of soloing on the tenor sax! The group here is the classic quartet – McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – taking Trane up to the heavens on waves of modal energy, but also holding his spirit closer to the planet than on some of later, more outside performances. There's a slight bit of vocalization on the record – that chanted energy that imbues the set with so much love – and movements include "Acknowledgement", "Resolution", "Pursuance", and "Psalm".

Eddie DuranJazz Guitarist ... LP
Fantasy, 1957. Near Mint- ... $44.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red vinyl pressing – flat edges and mottled red color – in a heavy cover! Cover and record are great – save for one small sticker in a bottom corner of the cover.)

EnvironmentsEnvironments–Disc 2 ... LP
Atlantic, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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

Jimmy GiuffreFree Fall ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $24.99
An incredible batch of freely crafted tracks from Jimmy Giuffre's legendary early 60s trio! The group features Steve Swallow on bass and Paul Bley on piano, and the two young modernists were a perfect match of Giuffre's ever-developing ideas of freedom and harmony. The music is beautiful – with a sound that's like nothing else we can describe, and an approach that's free floating (or free falling), but never directionless, and never overindulgent. Perfectly measured, with a strong sense of melody and rhythm, even amidst the more outside moments. Titles include "Propulsion", "Threewe", "Dichotomy", "Man Alone", and "Divided Man". 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
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

Slide Hampton OctetSomethin' Sanctified ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... $9.99
Sanctified, indeed – and just the kind of record to show why Slide Hampton was unlike any of his trombone-playing contemporaries! The set's got a tightness and punch that's really unique – not the compact quality of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding, but also not the hardbop of Curtis Fuller either – instead king of a rousing approach to jazz trombone that really makes Hampton the kind of the soul jazz approach to the instrument! Slide's working here with a cool octet that has the focus of a group half their size – a really well-chosen lineup of young, hip players that includes George Coleman on tenor sax, Hobart Dotson and Richard Williams on trumpets, Larry Ridley on bass, and additional trombone from a y oung Charles Greenlee! Titles include "El Sino", "Ow", "Milestones", and the stormin' title cut "Somethin Sanctified". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Billy HarperTrying To Make Heaven My Home ... LP
MPS (Japan), 1979. Very Good ... $24.99
Incredibly spiritual work from tenorist Billy Harper – a record that really lives up to its title, given the heavens-searching vibe in the music! The album's a rare date that Billy cut for the MPS label at the end of the 70s, and it rivals the genius of his Japanese sessions from the same stretch – very open, with a tremendous sense of freedom that's always directed towards the best sort of exploratory energy – going a bit more outside here than usual, at least compared to other Harper albums of the time. The great Everett Hollins plays trumpet on the set – a player we only know from Harper records, but one who always makes Billy's music sparkle – and other musicians include Armen Donelian on piano, Wayne Dockery on bass, and Malcolm Pinson on drums. Titles include "Trying To Make Heaven My Home", "Insight", and "Love On The Sudan". LP, Vinyl record album

Millie JacksonFeelin' Bitchy ... LP
Spring, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Millie Jackson's feelin bitchy – and letting a whole new side of her talents show! After the sweet southern soul sound of her early recordings, the Jackson style takes a sharp shift here – letting a bitchier side show up more strongly, and really setting the tone for the next great chapter of her music! Some of the set still features the older style production work by Brad Shapiro – but that's also pushed out by a smoother more modern soul feel on most of the record – one that has Millie emerging with a lot more pride, presence, and power than ever – all-woman, and all in control! Titles include the 10 minute Latimore cut "All The Way Lover", which has a great monologue that would even make Latimore blush – plus the tracks "A Little Taste Of Outside Love", "Feelin Like A Woman", "Angel In Your Arms", and the great "If You're Not Back In Love By Monday".

Linda JonesYour Precious Love ... LP
Turbo, Early 70s. Very Good ... $34.99
A masterpiece of New Jersey soul, and probably the greatest record ever from this much-underrated diva! The album's got stellar production by George Kerr and Slyvia Robinson, and lots of great cuts like "Don't Go", "Behold", "Not On The Outside", and a great remake of "Your Precious Love". The real treat, though, is Linda, whose vocals never seem to quit, and which place her right up there with Aretha and Lyn Collins as one of the greatest female soul singer ever!

✨✧ Eddie KendricksEddie Kendricks ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! Kendricks really scores big with the classic "Keep On Truckin" – a tune that's virtually the blueprint for boogie, and which is echoed here by a few other great numbers that really stand out – tunes that preface disco to come, but which also still bear a very strong link to the richest styles of Motown soul! Northern soul legend Frank Wilson had a great hand in the record – penning some of the best cuts, co-producing with Leonard Caston, and handling arrangements with Caston and James Carmichael – and in addition to "Keep On Truckin", other titles include "Darling Come Back Home", "Not On The Outside", "Any Day Now", "Where Do You Go (Baby)", "Each Day I Cry A Little", and "Only Room For Two".

Love UnlimitedUnder The Influence Of Love Unlimited ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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".

This special "Collector's Addition" features 70s tracks by The Moments – pulled from their Stang recordings for Sylvia Robinson, and compiled by her later for this Chess/Sugar Hill co-release. (No wonder Ray, Goodman, and Brown were so mad at her!)

Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $11.99
With grooves this great, the house must have been full – and the album's a gem of an early live date by Wes Montgomery, recorded in Berkeley with a quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! The tunes have a nicely cooking feel throughout – even when they're more gentle ones – and the record's a good reminder that outside of the studio, Wes could sometimes play with a bit more force on the strings – raspily hitting notes that explode off the guitar with tremendous precision and a good deel of feeling. Titles include the Montgomery originals "Full House", "SOS", and "Cariba", plus the tunes"Blue N Boogie" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". LP, Vinyl record album

David MurrayLive At Sweet Basil Vol 2 ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A really bold step forward for David Murray – a seminal live recording that features one of the hippest big bands you'll ever hope to find! Murray really uses the date as a chance to express the full range of his musical talents – and often shows modes that are more traditional than you might expect, yet which are always touched with an undercurrent of modernism! The musical palette here is quite different than either the outside or inside sessions recorded by Murray with a small group at the time – and he really reaches back through a rich history of jazz in the performance, and updates it wonderfully with help from players who include Baikida Carroll on trumpet, Olu Dara on cornet, Craig Harris on trombone, Vincent Chaney on French horn, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Rod Williams on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Butch Morris conducts – and titles on this second volume include "Dewey's Circle", "Roses", "David Tune", "Four Minute Marvin", and "Great Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny PhillipsMy Black Flower ... LP
Muse, 1976. Very Good ... $4.99
Although Sonny Phillips was one of the funky organ players to record for Prestige during the classic jazz funk years, by the time of this recording, he'd emerged as a more spiritual talent, with a looser, freer approach, and a much more open-ended vibe. This 1976 session is a good example of that – as it moves beyond simple funky jazz, into a realm that shows Phillips picking up a lot of outside influences, and going for a style that was mellower, more laidback, and a bit more cosmic – while still hitting some nice funky moments. The set was recorded by Houston Person, and features Phillips on piano and organ, with backing by Ben Dixon, Jimmy Ponder, and Ralph Dorsey. Titles include "Salaam 7", "Goin Home", "My Black Flower", and "Jalal". LP, Vinyl record album
