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

Yusef LateefOutside Blues (aka Lost In Sound) ... LP
Trip, 1961. Very Good ... $6.99
Yusef Lateef's one and only album for the Charlie Parker label – cut during a period when he's been making real waves in the jazz scene with work on Prestige and Savoy! The set's a bit more straight ahead than some of Lateef's more exotic sides of the time – focusing on his work on tenor, and going for a soulful hardbop approach that relatively upbeat and swinging, with traces of the work that Lateef was doing in the Cannonball Adderley group of the time. Players on the album include Vincent Pitts on trumpet, John Horman on piano, Ray McKinny on bass, and either George Scott or Clifford Jarvis on drums – and all tunes save two are originals, with titles that include "Outside Blues", "Blue Rocky", "Introlude", "Train Stomp", and "Trudy's Delight". 2nd pressing of the album Lost In Sound – with a cover that's different than the original. LP, Vinyl record album

MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good- ... $6.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet.)

Tangerine ZooOutside Looking In (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream, Late 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
Rare late 60s grooves from Boston area psych rockers Tangerine Zoo – a worthy follow up to their self-titled set! It's another fairly heavy groover from the psychedelic landscape. Titles include "Birth", "Like People", "Confusion", "Farther Down The Road", "Can't See You", "Young Dream" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BloodstoneUnreal ... LP
London, 1973. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Excellent spacey soul from Bloodstone – one of the early 70s best crossover groups! The band has a nice mellow sound, mixed with some elements of uptempo production, and kind of a slightly funky ensemble feel. There's also some of the best elements of that east coast early 70s sound – like electric sitar, soaring strings, and weird spacey instrumentation that drifts in and out of the vocal passages. Titles include "What You Did To Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Outside Woman", "Let Me Ride", "Traffic Cop", and "Keep Our Own Thing Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Arthur BlytheIllusions ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Maybe the boldest of Arthur Blythe's albums for Columbia Records – as the set bristles with newly creative energy right from the start, and provides a great showcase for some of the criss-crossings of styles and rhythms that were taking place on the New York scene at the time! The lineup alone announces something special – a cool combination of James Blood Ulmer on guitar, John Hicks on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, Abdul Wadud on cello, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Steve McCall on drums – working together in some slight variations at times, often with these angular edges that are perfectly sharpened by Arthur's amazing work on alto sax. The music's never too free, but quite outside for a major label at the time – balanced out so that it's never overindulgent at all. Titles include "Bush Baby", "Miss Nancy", "My Son Ra", and "Carespin With Mamie". LP, Vinyl record album

ChaliceBlasted ... LP
Pipe (Jamaica), 1981. Very Good ... $14.99
Like some of the other groups that were beginning to gain notice in the late 70s and early 80s, Chalice were not only self contained and self produced, but moved easily between a more accessible style of roots and soulful lovers rock, giving them wide appeal that oddly never really extended outside of Jamaica. 9 tracks of Sunsplash style jams, including "Good To Be There", "Night Fever", "Youthman (On The Corner)", "Loosen Up", "Are We Loving", "Marie", "A Song", "I Still Love You", and "Praise Him".

CircleCircle 1 – Live In German Concert ... LP
Sony (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- ... $38.99
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. Like most of the group's other recordings, this one is made up of 2 longer pieces: "Medley: Toy Room/O & A" and "There Is No Greater Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very nice Japanese pressing, with insert!)

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. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneOm ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio – initially in the spirit of Love Supreme, but much sharper-edged and unbridled overall – as if the meditative spirit of the previous recording had unlocked a sense of freedom that refused to be tied down to simple structures! The group is great – and features Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – plus a bit of flute and percussion from Joe Brazil. The playing is much freer than on other albums of the time, but also has some introspective spiritual moments – clearly inspired by the Love Supreme recording, but taken a shade outside as well! LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label stereo Bell Sound pressing. NOTE – Cover is stained and wrinkled on the bottom half, with flaking and peeling inside the gatefold.)

Chick Corea/David Holland/Barry AltschulARC (German pressing) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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

✨✧ Randy CrawfordNightline ... LP
Warner, 1983. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A great crossover moment for Randy Crawford – a set that's filled with catchy little numbers that really helped to break her big to a larger audience, yet still with all the jazzy class of her earlier records too! Linda and Cecil Womack contributed a number of excellent songs to the set, and these balance out the soul component nicely – rounding things out alongside a few of the more crossover tracks. Backings are polished, but still never too clunky or commercial – leaving lots of room for those classic Crawford vocals – and titles include "Nightline", "Living On The Outside", "The Bottom Line", "In Real Life", "Happy Feet", "Lift Me Up", and "Ain't No Foolin". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie DuranJazz Guitarist ... LP
Fantasy, 1957. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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.)

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

Linda JonesYour Precious Love ... LP
Turbo, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $44.99
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!

✨✧ LeadersOut Here Like This ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1988. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Adventurous work from this avant jazz "supergroup" – one that's made up of players who are normally leaders on their own, but who work together here with the great spirit of a group! The lineup features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Arthur Blythe on alto, Chico Freeman on tenor and soprano sax, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Don Moye on percussion – and the tracks are longish, overall – and shift easily between the straighter and more outside proclivities of the players on the set – making for a well-rounded album that showcases the mainstream aspects of the American avant scene of the time. Titles include "Donkey Dust", "Portraits", "Felicite", "Loves I Once Knew", and "Zero". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles LloydForest Flower ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
A famous album – and for good reason too! The set's something of a landmark in spiritual jazz from the 60s – and it features a classic live performance from Charles Lloyd, recorded at the Monterey Jazz Festival – almost as a distillation and popularization of ideas that were brewing in the music of John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, and others! The group here features a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all flowing magnificently with Lloyd's work on tenor and flute – in an open-ended groove that draws on modal rhythms for inspiration, and which features solos that stretch out, but never go "outside"! The classic performances of "Forest Flower" takes up all of side one – with a dreamy drifting quality that has Jarrett at his best – and side two features a version of his "Sorcery", plus McBee's "Song Of Her", and a version of "East Of The Sun".

One of two classic live albums that Maze cut during the 80s – even more proof that the Maze style of soul music was not only thriving, but succeeding strongly outside the studio, and regardless of airplay and album sales! The general groove is very similar to the band's classic work from the late 70s – with tight modern soul grooves, all graced by the magnificent vocals of Frankie Beverly, one of the generations best singers! Includes the cuts "Happy Feelins", "We Are One", "Back In Stride", "Freedom", "I Wanna Be With You", "When You Love Someone", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sunny Murray's Untouchable FactorApple Cores ... LP
Philly Jazz, 1978. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the hippest, tightest sessions ever recorded by drummer Sunny Murray – a large group set recorded with his Untouchable Factor group – a great ensemble that includes Frank Foster on soprano sax, Oliver Lake and Arthur Blythe on alto saxes, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Don Pullen on piano, and Cecil McBee and Fred Hopkins on bass! The sound is somewhat straighter than Murray's free jazz of a few years before – almost in the mode that Foster was exploring with some of his large ensembles of the 70s – a platform for righteous jazz expression, but in a way that's still tied together strongly with a sense of rhythm. Other players on the group include the enigmatic Youseff Yancy on a host of instruments, including theremin – plus the under-recorded Monette Sudler on guitar. Some tracks are a bit more outside than others – and titles include "Past Perfect Tense", "One Down & One Up", "Applebluff", "Apple Cores", and "New York Maze". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny PhillipsMy Black Flower ... LP
Muse, 1976. Sealed ... $9.99
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

Pieces Of A DreamJoyride ... LP
Manhattan, 1986. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A mid 80s hit for Pieces of a dream – moving here a lot farther from their roots as a smooth fusion soul ensemble. The album's got production by Lenny White and Maurice White – both of them working in the more electronic style that infused their own soul work as the 80s progressed. The style's not a bad one for the group, but we have to admit that we miss the warm soul of earlier albums. Titles include "Say La La", "Outside In", "Winning Streak", "Sunshine", "Joy Ride", and "I Can Give You What You Want". LP, Vinyl record album

Positive ExpressChangin' Times ... LP
Victory, 1982. Near Mint- (reissue)... $6.99
A great soul harmony trio – and one with a solid 80s groove! Positive Express recorded this one-off set for a smaller Sugarhill subsidiary in the early 80s – working in a tradition that goes back to the earlier All Platinum/Stang harmony work of the 70s (the group kicks off the set with a cover of an early Moments tune), but which also soars along on some bouncier, boogie-oriented grooves that are totally great. There's a snapping quality to most of the tracks – bringing an almost rollerskating groove to some of the best tunes – handled in a stripped-down indie soul mode that's totally great. Redd Hott provide the backings, and titles include a version of The Moments' "Not On the Outside", plus "Time Is Changing", "Welcome To The Party", "Do Me", "Love Injection", and "A Special Love Song".

Third World, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The weird, raw and legendary debut of teen trio The Shaggs – recorded in a single day and issued by the Third World label back in the day, before slowly building a devoted cult following over the years! The Shaggs story of a young girl group and their dad manager dreaming big and hoping for stardom, but the stunningly primitive sound actually makes the patron saints of outsider art rock and indie rock to come – it's messy and amazing to this day! Odd and hypnotic, it's an outsider classic unlike any other. Includes "Philosophy Of The World", "That Little Sports Car", "Who Are Parents", "My Pal Foot Foot", "My Companion", "I'm So Happy When You're Near", "Things I I Wonder", "It's Halloween", "Why Do I Feel?", "What Should I Do", "My Companion", "Sweet Thing", "We Have A Savoir" and more.
