✨✧ MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint- (reissue)... $7.99
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

Art BlakeyParis Concert ... LP
Epic, 1958. Very Good- ... $8.99
An excellent live set by the Jazz Messengers – recorded in Paris in 1958, but with a hard heavy groove that's right up there with their best Blue Note work. The group at this time – Blakey, Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Jymie Merritt – plays hard, heavy, and straight ahead, with no other interference from outside players – and the track list is a batch of classic Jazz Messenger standards, stretched out a bit longer than usual, with plenty of solo space! Titles include "Moanin", "Justice", "Are You Real", and "I Remember Clifford". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original yellow label pressing. Cover has a split top seam, some stains, and pen on back.)

Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic (Buddah pressing) ... LP
Buddah, 1972. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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
(Cover has a cut corner & light wear.)

Little Anthony & The ImperialsBest Of Little Anthony & The Imperials ... LP
Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. Titles include "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Our Song", "Get Out Of My Life", and "Going Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Mamas & PapasDeliver ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. Very Good- ... $7.99
Wonderfully dark harmonies from The Mamas & The Papas – one of those amazing late 60s albums from the group that was pop on the outside, but something very else underneath – a wonderful blend of modes that was hardly duplicated this well again! There's a slightly spooky feel to some of the music – even their leadoff cover of "Dedicated To The One I Love", which has an eerie quality that's way different than any previous readings – possibly a hint of the trouble between the group members – although maybe that's reading too much into it! Whatever the case, though – there's a special magic here that goes way beyond any understanding of the group you may have from oldies radio, and the set features some great original compositions by the young John Phillips too. Titles include "Creeque Alley", "Boys & Girls Together", "Look Through My Window", "Sing For Your Supper", "Free Advice", "Did You Ever Want To Cry", and "String Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

Modern Jazz QuartetThird Stream Music ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $2.99
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
(French pressing, with all French titles. Cover has some wear.)

Pharoah SandersJewels Of Thought ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Good+ ... $6.99
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
(Rainbow label stereo pressing.)

Horace TapscottTapscott Sessions Vol 4 ... LP
Nimbus, 1982. Sealed ... $19.99
A magical set of solo piano work by Horace Tapscott – one of the few players who can hold our ear so strongly in such a setting! The album features original tunes by Tapscott, Arthur Blythe, and Louis Spears – spun out in a soulfully elliptical style that manages to be exploratory without ever needing to go too far outside. As with others in this series, the recording quality is excellent – and really resonates with the strength of the piano work! Titles include "A Dress For Renee", "Shades Of Soweto", "Whit", "The Hero's Last Dance", and "Toward The Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album

Jukka TolonenTolonen ... LP
Janus, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
Heavy jamming fusion from Finnish guitarist Jukka Tolonen – long tracks with mostly that hard full-on sound that European players were pretty big on at the time, touched with a few lighter tracks that have a more spacious approach! The album was Tolonen's first as a leader, and it's a really strong debut that got him a fair bit of attention – even on this side of the Atlantic – and although later efforts never crossed over as big outside his native Finland, there's a real promise here, and a sound that's tight without being smooth or slick – a mode that should have made Tolonen one of the guitar jazz heroes of the 70s. Jukka's got a pretty rhythmic sound overall – keeping things choppy, although not necessarily that funky – and jamming with instrumentation that includes soprano sax, bass, and drums. Titles include "Mountains", "Wanderland", "Last Night", "Ramblin", and "Elements – Earth Fire Water Air". LP, Vinyl record album
(Library copy, with tape on all seams, some peeling and a sticker on the spine.)

29th Street Saxophone QuartetWatch Your Step ... LP
New Note, 1985. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A great set by one of the lesser-known sax quartets of the 80s – an ensemble that featured Bobby Watson and Ed Jackson on alto sax, Rich Rothenberg on tenor, and Jim Hartog on baritone – all blowing in a mix of modern and soulful styles, very much in the spirit of the more famous World Sax Quartet. The overall approach here is a bit looser, and freer – but still a good mix of inside and outside playing, in a style that shows that the group was taking seriously the full range of the jazz group, including rhythm, when playing with all saxes. Titles include "KCQ", "Hotel De Funk", "Lafiya", and "TPT". LP, Vinyl record album

A bit soul, a bit rock, with touches of funky folk – almost in the mode of Ellen McIlwaine, who was clearly one of Martha's contemporaries in the hip female singer/songwriter scene. Titles include "Two Bridges", "Black Rose", "Space King", "Livin Outside The Law", and "Byrdcliffe Summer". LP, Vinyl record album

George WallingtonJazz For The Carriage Trade ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all players that help push the record with a tremendous amount of hardbop and modern jazz energy! Byrd and Woods are at their best youthful prime on the set – and the longish tracks really give both artists room to stretch out and show off their talents! Titles include "Foster Dulles", "Together We Wail", "Our Delight", and "But George". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing.)

✨✧ Tyrone WashingtonRoots ... LP
Perception, 1973. Near Mint- ... $23.99
A wonderful bit of spiritual soul jazz! This sweet little record was recorded out of the same energy that produced Larry Young's Lawrence of Newark LP for Perception Records, and it's a strange session by Tyrone Washington – a young player from the Newark scene who'd previously cut a straighter album for Blue Note, but who was working here in kind of a messed-up grab bag of styles that fit well with the stoned-out approach of the Perception label. Hubert Eaves plays piano, Stafford James plays bass, Clifford Barconadhi is on drums, and the album's a mix of funk, modal jazz grooving, and a bit of outside activity. In a way, the album's earnestness reminds us of some of Roland Kirk's work from the same time – except that Tyrone's backing group is incredible, with a tight rhythmic sound that gets funky at just the right moments. Titles include "War Is Not For Men", "1980", "Submission", and "Spiritual Light Of The Universe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has some light wear.)

✨✧ Michael WhiteLand Of Spirit & Light ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
Beautiful work from Michael White – one of the few musicians who can actually make us love the sound of the violin in jazz! White's working here in a style that's very much in line with some of the post-Coltrane spiritual soul jazz in Impulse in the early 70s – an approach that's free-thinking, yet never as far outside as some of the avant work on the label during the 60s. Instead, there's a gentle, almost contemplative groove here – one that has echoes of some of Alice Coltrane's more meditative recordings, yet which also breaks out with some of the more modal jazz of Michael White's roots. Players on the album include Prince Lasha on reeds, Ed Kelly on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Kenneth Nash on percussion – and the album's filled with organic textures and beautifully flowing grooves! Titles include the beautiful "Land Of Spirit & Light" suite in three parts, plus "Fatima's Garden", "Fiesta Dominical", "O Ancient One" and "Lament (Mankind)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label ABC/Impulse pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

Stevie WonderJourney Through The Secret Life Of Plants ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on the set – often in a way that has his keyboards taking center stage in little symphonies of soul that unfold like the petals of a flower in the morning sun – and which stand out as quite different from some of his vocal work, marking him as a talented electronic musician in his own right. Many tracks do have lyrics, too – often with themes of growing, seeding, and other garden metaphors that are easily translated to the human experience. Titles include "Secret Life Of Plants", "Outside My Window", "A Seed's A Star", "Race Babbling", "Black Orchid", "Send One Your Love", "Tree", "Come Back As A Flower", and "Ai No Sono". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the non-braille cover, which has some moderate wear & a 3" split on the spine.)

✨✧ Ray Charles & Betty CarterRay Charles & Betty Carter ... LP
ABC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Dunhill clear vinyl pressing, from 1988.)

✨✧ Terumasa HinoTaro's Mood ... LP
Enja, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(US pressing. Library copy, with aging, tape along the edges, tape stains & a peeled spot.)

✨✧ Eddie KendricksEddie Kendricks ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has minor splitting and a marker spot on the back.)

✨✧ TronicsWhat's The Hubub Bub ... LP
M'Lady's, Early 80s. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spare outsider rock from Tronics – recorded live to cassette in the early 80s, with bare bones, catchy songs that deconstruct rock and roll influences to the bedrock beneath – paired up with tape effects and other more experimental touches! A good deal of tracks are plaintively voiced, though oddly accessible songs, backed by guitar and the rawest of drum beats – but there's some weirder pastiches of recorded movie dialogue and manipulated tape sounds. As weird as it is, it's oddly catchy and accessible – a bit reminiscent of groups like Half Japanese and Beat Happening at strangest. Includes "How Do You Do Again", "Helsinki", "Raw Reggae", "The Other Man", "Alone", "Space Message", "The Other Man", "The Shark F**ks", "I'm A Diver", "Pieces For A", "Galaxy Bar Juke Box" 1& 2" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the inserts.)
