Cannonball Adderley QuintetHappy People ... LP LP format
Capitol, 1972. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record – a set that isn't really bossa, but isn't regular Cannonball funk either – kind of a special hybrid of the two! Airto plays on the set, and contributed the great groover "The Happy People" – a long bit of funky samba that features George Duke on electric piano, and percussion and vocals by Airto himself. The rest of the album's pretty darn great too – with some long tracks that have a more open-ended groove than the usual Cannon funk – featuring more piano by Duke, percussion by Airto and King Errison, cornet by Nat Adderley, and guitar by David T Walker. Other titles include "Ela", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Savior" – and the album was recorded live, with a very lively feel! LP, Vinyl record album

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoPeople In Sorrow ... LP LP format
Nessa, 1969. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Like the other Art Ensemble record on Nessa, Les Stances A Sophie, this one was recorded in France on the beautiful July 7, 1969 during one of the most fruitful periods for the group. Unlike that one, though, this one is a very different recording musically. The LP features one long track, the title cut, and the music is very spare, with lots of nice isolated bass work, horn solos, and percussion. The group here is a quartet that features Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman, Lester Bowie, and Malachi Favors. LP, Vinyl record album

Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdBlues For Night People ... LP LP format
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $9.99
One of the earthiest albums ever cut by guitarist Charlie Byrd – a session that predates his better-known sides on Riverside and Columbia, and which definitely earns the "blues" in the title! Byrd's working here with his familiar trio of Keeter Betts on bass and Gus Johnson on drums – playing acoustic guitar, but in a way that's nicely laidback, and quite open overall – almost like Tiny Grimes, but a bit less hard-edged overall. Titles include the "Blues For Night People" suite on side one, plus "Blues My Naughtie Sweetie Taught Me", "Blue Prelude", and "Jive At Five". LP, Vinyl record album

Chi-Lites(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People ... LP LP format
Brunswick, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups! The band had always been great at love songs and uptempo numbers – but this record has them moving into more righteous area, picking up on some of the more socially conscious soul of their generation that had been working its way up the charts. The album features excellent production by Chi-Lite Eugene Record, who also wrote a lot of the material – plus arrangements by Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Great stuff all around, with the righteous social tunes "(For God's Sake) Give More Power to The People", "Trouble's A Comin", and "We Are Neighbors" – plus classic love songs "Have You Seen Her" and "Love Uprising", which are still kind of the band's strongest point. Loads more great stuff on this one, the album that helped the second wave of Chicago soul break out into the international market! LP, Vinyl record album

DAP x The NomadsEpic/To My People ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Stay The Course, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
Strong independent hip hop from heretofore unknown Brooklyn emcee DAP – with live instrumentation by The Nomads – the first single on the upstart Stay The Course label, and here's hoping they do just that! This is solid stuff – rooted in raw 90s east coast boom bap, inspiration-wise – but it's not so much a throwback, as it is a fresh take on a timelessly inventive style. The Nomads provide a spare jazz funk backdrop of drums, bass, keys and sax that suits it perfectly. "Epic" and "To My People" are both top notch tracks. A solid start! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bear Family (Germany), Mid 30s. New Copy 4CD & Book ... $95.99 114.99
A treasure trove of wonderful work from The Dixon Brothers – a North Carolina duo who were to their generation what the Louvin Brothers were to the late 50s! In fact, the pair were a key precursor to so many other acts to come – in the way they mixed together tragic songs, gospel, social commentary, and other themes – all in a pre-country style that was very compelling work in the 30s hillbilly generation. The duo have been reissued over the years, but never in a manner this great – a lavish 4CD set that brings together all of their RCA recordings from the 30s, plus later solo recordings by Dorsey Dixon – all with a stunning heavy hardcover book that's filled with notes, images, and lots of other information on the Dixon Brothers. Bear Family at its best! CD

Duke EllingtonMy People ... CD CD format
Contact/Boplicity (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $8.99
A great high-concept composition from Duke Ellington – one that rivals the earlier brilliance of his Liberian Suite! Like that one, vocals are a key part of this long-form work – a special performance done for the Century Of Negro Progress Exposition in Chicago in 1963 – with an all-star cast that includes Jimmy Jones both at the piano and conductor's stand; Joya Sherrill on vocals with the Irving Bunton Singers, Jimmy Grissom, Jimmy McPhail, and Lil Greenwood; Billy Strayhorn on celeste, Juan Amalbert on conga, and other familiar Ellingtonians in the larger group! The tunes have a mix of gospel and folk roots, turned towards more modern Ellington compositional modes – and almost all numbers feature vocals, including one with narration by Ellington himself. Titles include "Will You Be There", "Come Sunday", "David Danced", "Montage", "My Mother My Father", "My People", "The Blues Ain't", and "What Color Is Virtue". CD

Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, percussion, and sing-song vocals! The horns give the whole thing a bit more of a straight Afro Funk punch at times – which balances things out nicely. The flipside is every bit as charming as the main track – with similarly bright lyrics, and cool guitar bits that almost come across with a steel pan sort of feel at times! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Very cool package – a pic sleeve with a poster too!)
