Curtis FullerFour On The Outside ... LP
Timeless (Netherlands), 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An explosive late 70s moment of brilliance from trombonist Curtis Fuller – and one of his greatest albums of the time! The set's got Fuller working with an unusual group – Pepper Adams on baritone sax, making for a nice "bottom" alongside Fuller's trombone, plus James Williams, borrowed from Art Blakey's group of the time – and really stepping out here with some great soaring piano lines. The rest of the quintet features Dennis Irwin on bass and John Yarling on drums – but the real boss of the set is clearly Fuller, who's contributed some wonderful originals to the session, and is clearly working with a re-kindled spirit at this point in his career. Titles include "Four On The Outside", "Suite Kathy", "Little Dreams", "Ballad For Gabe-Wells", and "Corrida Del Torro". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shelly ManneOutside ... LP
Contemporary, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If you've ever doubted the influence of Coltrane on jazz, just check this 1970 session from Shelly Manne – one in which he's broken past the usual tight west coast TV jazz sound, and has moved into much freer territory with a group of younger (and hairier!) players. The group icnludes Pete Robinson on piano and electric piano, Gary Barone on trumpet, and John Gross on tenor and flute – and while the tracks are not as "outside" as the title might imply, they do have strikingly freewheeling solos, and Shelly's doing his best to go all over the kit to keep up with the kids. Not a bad album overall, actually – and with the tracks "For Bean", "Don't Know", "Steve", and "River Running". LP, Vinyl record album

Cher3614 Jackson Highway ... LP
Atco, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
Recorded in at Muscle Shoals Sound, the studio referenced in the title of the album, and presented in a wonderful cover image that has Cher standing outside the tiny facility with a host of legendary studio players that include Eddie Hinton, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Beckett, and Roger Hawkins! Sonny's also standing in the crowd in the photo, but he's as in the background as he is on this set – as Cher's singing alone in a soul-styled mode that's befits the setting of the album. Titles include a funky take on "I Walk On Guilded Splinters", plus "For What It's Worth", "Cry Like A Baby", "Save The Children", "Do Right Woman", and "Dock Of The Bay". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneOm ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
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!

Chick Corea/David Holland/Barry AltschulARC (German pressing) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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

Eric DolphyEric Dolphy In Europe ... LP
Debut/Be! (Germany), 1961. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
Wonderful live material from the late Eric Dolphy – recorded in Europe not on his final tour of 1964, but during a very special Copenhagen performance in 1961 – at a time when Dolphy was beautifully balanced between swinging and spiritual sounds! Both aspects of his music come into play here – the latter on a sublime solo bass clarinet reading of "God Bless The Child" – which is full of feeling, but never too far outside – and which is balanced out with group readings of "I Don't Know Why", "Oleo", and "The Way You Look Tonight" – all of which have fire, but still groove wonderfully too. The group features Bent Axen on piano, Eric Moselholm and Chuck Israels on bass, and Jorn Elniff on drums – and although Dolphy plays alto on the other tracks, he knocks it out of the park with a very long flute solo on the album's 13 minute version of "Hi Fly".

Fever TreeFever Tree ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good- ... $8.99
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.

✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldRhythm Is My Business ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
They're not lying with the title on this one, as Ella's singing to backings from the great Bill Doggett – who cooks up some of the liveliest rhythms Ella ever received from Verve! The style is still similar to other Verve records of the time – with that magnificent Fitzgerald vocal style transforming familiar tunes and standards – but the groove is much more upbeat, and Ella swings it hard in a style that really takes us back to her earlier years. Titles include "Runnin Wild", "No Moon At All", "Laughin On The Outside", "I Can't Face The Music", and "Rough Ridin". LP, Vinyl record album

King Fleming TrioWeary Traveler ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Very Good ... $9.99
King Fleming's third trio side for the Argo label, another variety of standards with a few Fleming originals thrown in for good measure. In the Chicago piano trio tradition of Ramsey Lewis or Ahmad Jamal (who actually followed in Fleming's footsteps), this set covers soulful ballads like "Dearly Beloved" or "I Remember You" and bluesy originals like Fleming's "Darn It" and "Riff A Plenty". Like Von Freeman, King Fleming's is a voice seldom heard outside of Chicago, while quietly influencing many of the more well known stars to come to prominence on the national and international scene.

Terumasa HinoTaro's Mood ... LP
Enja, 1973. Very Good+ ... $13.99
One of the first great non-Japanese recordings by trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a smoking little live set from Germany, done at a time when Hino was working at the height of his youthful powers! The mode here is stretched out and open – never too outside, but very exploratory – in the direction that Hino took quite strongly on his Japanese albums as the 70s approached, but performed here in a style that's even more organic than those records. The group is all Japanese – with Motohiko Hino on drums and Mikio Masuda on piano – and added conga at the bottom of the backings almost gives the record an early 70s Impulse Records sort of feel – nice and spiritual, and plenty soulful! Titles include "Alone Alone & Alone", "Taro's Mood", "Black Daffodil", and "Predawn". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie KendricksEddie Kendricks ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
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".

✨✧ Kurtis BlowEgo Trip ... LP
Mercury, 1984. Very Good ... $4.99
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 Linn 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.

LeadersOut Here Like This ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1988. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

✨✧ Love UnlimitedUnder The Influence Of Love Unlimited ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
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".

Helen MerrillFeeling Is Mutual ... LP
Milestone, 1965. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A wonderfully moody session from Helen Merrill – and an obscure one too! The album was recorded in New York in 1965 – with pianist Dick Katz leading an off-beat group that featured Thad Jones on cornet, Jim Hall on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – a combo that has equal talents for modern moments and more sensitive moods. The groove is much more fragmented than on some of Helen's earlier records for Mercury – with a jagged edge that works perfectly with her strangely detached style of presenting a lyric – a way of looking at familiar tunes almost from the outside, in ways that really come up with something new. Titles include "Baltimore Oriole", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Day Dream", "The Winter Of My Discontent", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Deep In A Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetThird Stream Music ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

Stang, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP ... $8.99
A classic 70's double LP that includes all of the Moments' great hits for the Stang label from earlier in the decade. The record's got 2LPs worth of classic harmony vocals – and a track list that includes "Not On The Outside", "Nine Times", "What's Your Name", "Just Because He Wants To Make Love", "I'm So Lost", "Sexy Mama", "Sunday", "I Do", "To You With Love", "Girls", "Love On A Two Way Street", "With You", and lots lots more!

Wes MontgomeryFull House ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Don PullenMilano Strut ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Wonderful duets between pianist Don Pullen and percussionist Famoudou Don Moye – a record that's a lot more outside than most of Pullen's other sides from the time! The overall sound is quite free and improvised – wild lines on piano, and a bit of organ, from Pullen – and some very earthy percussion from Moye, plus some drums that get a bit more bombastic. After the initial frenzy of the tune "Conversation", the album gets a bit more introspective in more familiar Pullen territory on titles like "Communication" and "Milano Strut" – the latter of which features Don on organ, almost in slow-grooving funky mode. Things end on a pretty raucous note, though – going strongly outside again on the track "Curve Eleven". LP, Vinyl record album

Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesTears Of A Clown ... LP
Motown, 1967. Very Good ... $12.99
About as classic as you can get for late 60s Miracles! Smokey's vocals are in perfect form, and the group still has that 60s falsetto harmony sound, with lots of fragile bits and strong group backing. Includes the huge hit "Tears Of A Clown", plus a motherlode of great originals that make this a no-filler set! Titles include "The Soulful Shack", "My Love Is Your Love", "Don't Think It's Me", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "More Love", and "It's A Good Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1969. Very Good ... $18.99
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah SandersKarma ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it's a beautiful extended suite of tracks that flows with a sense of grace, power, and majesty that's simply breathtaking – a new level of expression in spiritual jazz – and virtually the blueprint for an entire generation to come! The album features the classic track "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – spanning a tremendous amount of space and time – and featuring Leon Thomas' classic vocals on the lyrics! Thomas also returns on the cut "Colors", which is a bit more outside, and quite free overall – and other players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, James Spaulding on flute, Julius Watkins on French horn, Ron Carter and Richard Davis on bass, and Freddie Waits and Billy Hart on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
