Frank Hooker & Positive PeopleFrank Hooker & Positive People ... LP
Panorama, 1980. Very Good ... $2.99
Frank Hooker and his Positive People get some great arrangements here from Norman Harris – who really helps the group find their groove, and give them a lot more polish than you might expect! Frank's vocals are a bit everyday at points – but that's also part of the charm of the record, and a great example of the way that Harris could make just about anyone sound good. Titles include "Like Sister & Brother", "Devotion", "I Wanna Know Your Name", and "This Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has large letters in marker, some pen, and light wear. Labels have some pen.)

Mostly Other People Do The KillingLoafer's Hollow ... CD
Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Fantastic work from a group who never fail to blow our minds – and who also seem to try out something different with each new record, yet never falter at all in their progress forward! Mostly Other People Do The Killing may have one of the longest names in jazz, but they've also got a brash approach that really lives up to the cockiness of their name – a confident step in whatever direction they want, which always leads them down the best path. This time around, they're mixing both modern and trad jazz expressions with literary inspiration from writers who include Thomas Pynchon, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Cormac McCarthy, and David Foster Wallace – each of whom are listed as reference points for certain songs – which are based around snippets of their text, then transformed into a musical mode. The instrumentation is a very offbeat take on trad – with Jon Irabgon on tenor and sopranino sax, Steven Bernstein on trumpet and slide trumpet, Dave Taylor on bass trombone, Brandon Seabrook on banjo and electronics, Kevin Shea on drums, Ron Stabinsky on piano, and leader Moppa Elliott on bass. Titles include "Kilgore", "Hi Nella", "Honey Hole", "Bloomsberg", "Glen Riddle", "Mason & Dixon", and "Five". CD

Mostly Other People Do The KillingPaint ... CD
Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A genius new step for Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a group who manages to give us something completely different every time around – yet never come across with any sense of gimmick at all! Instead, they just leap into fresh modes with all their best creative energy, and come up with something that has us falling in love with them all over again – as they do here, working only as a trio this time around – but awash in as much color as you'd guess from the album's cover! The group features the mighty Moppa Elliott on bass – as fantastic as always – with Ron Stabinsky on piano and Kevin Shea on drums – a familiar structure for a lineup, but one that comes across with a very inventive quality – that "something different" vibe that's marked MOPDTK from the start – as much in love with jazz tradition as it is willing to change it. Pianist Stabinsky is incredibly fluid – spinning out notes that almost feel like they're coming faster than he can think – sparks of color that explode on the keys of the piano, on titles that include "Yellow House", "Orangeville", "Green Briar", "Golden Hill", "Whitehall", and "Plum Run".

Mostly Other People Do The KillingThis Is Our Moosic ... CD
Hot Cup, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A really exciting avant jazz set from Mostly Other People Do The Killing – a killer quartet who manage to roll through a wide variety of styles that show a true depth of understanding of some of the greatest jazz of the past half century – and have a heck of great time playing it! Ostensibly a tribute to Ornette Coleman, MOPDTK do a lot more than pay homage to a master on this album. They manage to roll in and out of elements of hard and post bop, nod reverently to the international 60s avant garde scenes, and so much more – all with infectious enthusiasm. It would be mess in lesser hands, but these guys pull it off! Players include Peter Evans on trumpet, Kevin Shea on drums, Jon Irabagon on sax and Moppa Elliot on double bass. Titles include "Drainlick", "Two Boot Jacks", "Fagundus", "The Bats In Belfry", "East Orwell", "My Delightful Muse", "Allentown" and more. CD

PeopleCeremony – Buddah Meet Rock ... LP
Teichiku (Japan), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $48.99
Quite a weird little record – part psychedelia, but with some really rootsy elements – and also some odd use of recorded music as well! The sound here is really mindblowing – experimental and trippy, but never too free or over the top – and the core instrumentation includes lots of fuzzy guitar, organ, and rough percussion – plus additional vocals in parts, and even a bit of sitar as well! The production abstracts some of the sounds nicely, but never too much – and at times a more traditional Japanese style of music lurks in the background, possibly as a brief nod to the Buddha in the title. Most unusually, though, is that the first track on the record features part of a David Axelrod album playing in the background! There's clearly an Axelrod influence going on – both in the structure and sound of the record – although the group also take things very much in their own direction too. Titles include "Shomyo (part 1)", "Flower Strewing", "Prologue", and "Prayer (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – with textured, paste-on cover – just like the original!)

People's ChoiceBoogie Down USA ... CD
Philadelphia International/Sony (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". CD

✨✧ People's ChoiceTurn Me Loose (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
One of the crowning achievements of People's Choice – a very hip group on the Philly scene, but one who spent most of their early years just releasing excellent (but under-circulated) 7" singles! By the time they arrived at the Philadelphia International label, the group was razor-sharp, and right at the top of their game – schooled in funk and soul, and almost more self-contained than some of the other artists who worked with Gamble & Huff! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound, but has a leaner sound than some of the disco productions of the time – more funky soul, turned towards a 70s club mode – with excellent vocals from Valerie Brown, who shares lead spotlight with longtime group member Frankie Brunson. Titles include the nice mellow stepper "Soft & Tender", plus "Rough Ride", "Stay With Me", "A Greater Truth", "Your Love Stays On My Mind", and "Turn Me Loose". CD features bonus tracks – "Turn Me Loose (12" disco version)", "Rough Ride (single)", and "Turn Me Loose (single)". CD

✨✧ People's ChoiceWe Got The Rhythm ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good- ... $1.99
People's Choice have the rhythm – as they did right from the very start, when they were first cutting records as a late 60s funk combo in Philly! The style here is more late 70s club, handled with perfection by the team of Gamble & Huff – but the PC approach is still a lot more funk than some of their contemporaries – with lots of sharp, live rhythms at the bottom of the grooves – and plenty of sweet keyboards from leader Frankie Brunson! Brunson sings a bit too, but the group seem to balance out the sound with lots of instrumental moments – and titles include "Here We Go Again", "Jam Jam Jam", "We Got The Rhythm", "Cold Blooded & Downright Funky", and "Opus De Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ People's Pleasure with Alive & WellDo You Hear Me Talkin To You (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Brownstone/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99
A very cool combo from the LA scene of the 70s – a tight funky group, topped with two female soul singers – all working together in a style that's got a wonderful mixture of warmer edges and grittier sounds at the core! The two female singers really give the set a unique vibe – as they help bring focus to the instrumentation of the group, with a lot more presence than the usual throw-in female vocals of the time – hardly the backing chorus mode of a disco record, and instead a great balance to the sharp guitar lines and keyboards from the musicians! We've not heard of any of the players in any other setting, but they're very good – clearly able to handle jazz if they want, but aimed here towards a sophisticated funk style that's equally great on the mellow steppers as it is on the more upbeat tracks. Titles include "Heavenly Feeling", "World Full Of People", "Do You Hear Me Talking To You", "Dreaming Our Lives Away", "A Thank You Song", "Fantasies & Dreams", and "I'd Like To Stay". CD features a bonus 7" mix of "I'd Like To Stay". CD

People's WorkshopHouston Talent Expo 1982 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BBE (UK), 1982. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
The cover might look a bit understated, but the album's got plenty of depth and power – a rare set from the Texas underground of the early 80s – cut by a group who've clearly drunk deep from the same musical well that inspired Stevie Wonder, Roy Ayers, and other cosmic soul talents of the 70s! As with Stevie and Roy, there's plenty of jazzy currents in the music of The People's Workshop – warm keyboards, sweet sax and flute, and waves of color that really come through the grooves and illuminate the deeper spirit of the vocals. There's a sense of collaboration here that's really special – almost a James Mason vibe at times – all with a sense of sophistication that's quite different than the rootsier sounds you might normally expect from Texas soul groups. Titles include "Save Your Money", "A Song For The Children", "Love Love", "Let's Get High", "Chocolate Coated People Song", and "This Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Defected/Papa (Japan), 2006. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A stunning full length set from Reel People – soulful club with vocals by a variety of wonderful singers that include Angela Johnson, Vanessa Freeman, Dyanna Fearon, Sharlene Hector, and Jag! The set really lives up to the promise of Reel People's work on singles over the years – filled with the kind of warm soul that we've come to love in their music, and which sounds even better here spread out over the course of a full LP! Every track is really wonderful – not a bit of filler at all – and the set's easily one of the strongest releases of its type in a long time! Plus, this 2CD package features the original album, plus a second disc of remixes! Titles include "Second Guess", "The Light", "Butterflies", "Steppin", "Washing Away", "Back 2 Base", "Can't Stop", and "Positive Over Negative.

Tree PeopleHuman Voices ... LP
Guerssen (Spain), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Tree People's second album – still growing strong, deeply rooted and flute flavored psychedelic folk well into to the 80s! This one has the feel of the first record from the late 70s, a really good thing given the tinny strange sound of folk and folkish records made in the 80s. The Oregon combo still brings with the earthy, sometimes spare and haunting, and at others nicely rollicking vibe. Titles include "Human Voices", "Grandfather", "Opus II", "Things Fall Apart", "Thomas", "Rain Rain", "Dance", "If That's Entertainment" and "Sketches". LP, Vinyl record album
