Jimmy GiuffreTrav'lin' Light ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the most sublime Jimmy Giuffre albums of all time – and a perfect realization of his piano-less/bass-less trio style! The approach here is really revolutionary, especially for the time – as the group simply features Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Jim Hall on guitar, and Giuffre on reeds – working with no other rhythm at all, and coming up with this incredible approach to music that's as breathtaking as it is groundbreaking! Notes hang in mid-air, slowly sliding around one another, flying freely from the players, yet still managing to swing in a beautiful way. The titles are a mix of standards and originals – but all tracks sound completely unique, with a sound unlike anything else we can describe – and titles include "Swamp People", "Lonely Time", "Green Country", and "Travelin Light". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

Marty Gold & His OrchestraSoundaroundus ... LP
RCA, 1966. Very Good ... $0.99
Swingin hi fi and big band sounds – and, as the label says, "a marriage of music and electronics – spellbinding". The "electronics" aren't moogy or anything like that, but the sound's pretty good, and there are some nice covers such as "A Taste Of Honey", "Michelle", "King Of The Road", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "People" plus an original called "The Soundaroundus".

Grand Slam with Gary Mudbone CooperFunk Cruisin' – The Neverending Voyage (includes bonus DVD) ... LP
TNT Productions (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99
A contemporary group from overseas, but one who've drank heavily from the George Clinton P-Funk brew of the 70s – and found a great way to bring the sound forward for the 21st Century! The work here is very much in the best late P-Funk mode – bassy, but never too uptight – played live with a great flourish that really shows the camaraderie of the group as a whole, and their love of trading licks back and forth with effortless ease! Much of the groove is instrumental – at times, vocals almost feel like an afterthought next to the instrumental jams – but Gary Mudbone Cooper, of P-Funk fame, does sing on a few tracks, as do other group members too. Titles include "Get On Down", "A Little Mo'Fun", "Camp Down", "Chillin With My People", "New Crack Swing", "Funky Juices", "Time 2 Get Paid", "Kon Air", "Drunk Cruisin", and "Soul Machine". Features a full concert DVD too! LP, Vinyl record album

Gypsy LanePredictions ... CD
Drive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
Gypsy Lane were produced here by Jacques Morali, of Village People fame – but don't hold that against them, as the set's got a deeper vibe than you might expect! The group seem pretty tight on their own already – and work more as a tight ensemble funk group than the kind of disco studio creations Morali was more tied to – grooving at a level that seems informed by the best mid 70s advances of Earth Wind & Fire, which includes some warmer moments next to the uptempo cuts. Lead vocals are by Alfonso Carey, but other members of the group often harmonize alongside – and titles include "Show Me How To Groove", "We'll Have Love", "Hey Sister", and "I Could Use Some Loving".

✨✧ Charlie HadenBallad Of The Fallen ... CD
ECM, 1983. Used ... $15.99
One of the greatest records that Charlie Haden ever did, and a record that stands as sort of a bookend to his Liberation Music album on Impulse. As with that record, he's got a large group on here, and also like that one, he's playing a batch of tracks that have a definite political bent. Players include Don Cherry, Carla Bley, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian, Jim Pepper, and Michael Mantler; and tracks include "Ballad Of The Fallen", "Too Late", "La Pasionaria", and "The People United Will Never Be Defeated". The sound's a little bit less harsh than his Impulse recording, but it's no less impassioned, and the record's a very emotional batch of music. CD

Rufus HarleySustain ... CD
Philly Jazz/Isma'a (France), 2005. Used ... $11.99
Sustain is one thing Rufus Harley does best – because although he's best remembered for his key Atlantic records of the 60s, Harley's been burning strong all these years – continuing to grow and groove as an artist! This recent album is proof that Rufus hasn't missed a beat since falling out of the limelight, and the record's a beautifully done session that mixes Harley's jazz work on bagpipes with trumpet, piano, organ, and percussion – all used in a groove that has the same mix of progressive and modal styles that made his early work so great. By now, the fact of Harley's bagpipe work in jazz is nothing new – which means that the record immediately past the gimmicks and right into the heart of the groove – letting Rufus open up with searing, searching solos in a post-Coltrane vein, supported by a sympathetic combo who spur him on with their energy. Titles include the originals "The Constitution", "We Are The People", and "Tribute To Courage" – plus great takes on "Sunshower", "Love Supreme", and "A Child Is Born". CD

Eddie HarrisCome On Down/Reason Why I'm Talkin S**t ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1970/1976. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
2 Atlantic gems from Eddie Harris – back to back in a 2CD set! Come On Down is a really great little set that has Eddie's Chicago tenor linking up with the growing Miami soul scene of the early 70s – as Eddie "comes on down" to the Sunshine State, and records for Atlantic at the legendary Criteria Studios! Eddie's still got the electric Varitone groove of his late 60s sides for the label – but he's also stepping out here in a dirtier, funkier bottom sort of sound – aided by a combo that includes southern soulsters Billy Carter on organ, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Dave Crawford on piano – plus Jimmy O'Rourke and Cornelle Dupree playing guitars side by side, in a jamming way that really makes the album groove! There's still some nice spacier moments that remind us of Eddie's Chicago recordings, sitting nicely next to the funkier cuts that make the album stand out. Titles include "Fooltish", "Why Don't You Quit", "Don't You Know Your Future's In Space", and "Live Right Now". Reason Why I'm Talkin is a very interesting album from Eddie Harris – one that's more of a comedy album than a jazz record – honest! Most of the record features Eddie performing his own comedy material – pretty blue stuff with lots of bad-rapping and profanity – possibly trying to cash in on the Rudy Ray Moore tip. A few cuts feature some backing by a combo that includes Paul Humphrey on drums and Odell Brown on organ – helping Eddie to set the scene and change the mood. Titles include "People Getting Ready To Go See Eddie Harris", "Are There Any Questions", "The Next Band", "Brother Soul", "Eddie Atlantic", and "Singing & Straining". CD

Jimi Hendrix ExperienceFreedom – Atlanta Pop Festival ... LP
Legacy, Late 60s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A legendary performance from Jimi Hendrix – recorded at the second Atlanta Pop Festival just ten short weeks before Jimi's death, and a searing set throughout! The concert was the biggest that Hendrix ever played in the US – about 200,000 people in attendance – but the recording quality is very up-close and intimate, and very much in the same range as other important live performances by Jimi – making the set a key addition to his catalog! Tracks are nice and long, and filled with monstrous solos that really push past the studio versions – and Hendrix is in amazing form throughout, making us wonder what would have happened if he hadn't departed us all too soon. Titles include "Fire", "Lover Man", "Spanish Castle Magic", "Message To Love", "Room Full Of Mirrors", "Stone Free", "Voodoo Child", "Purple Haze", "Freedom", "All Along The Watchtower", "Hear My Train A Comin", and "Star Spangled Banner" – a nice touch, given that the set happened on July 4th, 1970!

High LlamasHawaii (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Alpaca Park/V2, 1996. Used 2CD ... $4.99
A really great one from Sean O'Hagan and crew – a set that has some of the tighter, warmer songs of Gideon Gaye, but which also shows a bit more experimentation on the instrumentation – in ways that make for plenty of great tracks that almost feel like outtakes from the Pet Sounds and Smile sessions! Titles include "Campers In Control", "Theatreland", "Tides", "Pilgrims", "Nomads", "Island People", "Dressing Up The Old Dakota", "DC 8", "Friendly Pioneer", "Incidentally NEO", and "Nomad Strings". Includes 6 bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Jazzmeia HornSocial Call ... CD
Prestige, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
The album's titled after a famous song by Betty Carter, and the sound of the set might well match her legacy too – as Jazzmeia Horn is clearly a singer we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Horn's got an incredible range – the first female jazz singer we've heard in years to really open up in the instrument-inspired style of the famous vocalists of years back – but she's also an artist who's not just copping old school jazz modes, as the presentation and choice of material is very strongly her own, and really blows us away! For everyone who's dug the music of top-shelf jazz singers like Betty Carter, Shirley Horn, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – Jazzmeia Horn may well be the next step forward. Players on the album include Victor Gould on piano, Ben Williams on bass, and Jerome Jennings on drums – and the set also features contributions from Josh Evans on trumpet, Frank Lacy on trombone, and Stacy Dillard on tenor. Titles include "Tight", "Up Above My Head", "Social Call", "People Make The World Go Round", "The Peacocks", "I Remember You", and "Afro Blue/Eye See You/Wade In The Water". CD

✨✧ Freddie HubbardPolar AC ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1974. Used ... $8.99
Warm and wonderful work from Freddie Hubbard – a killer of an album recorded for CTI, and one of his most soulful efforts for the label! The album's got a bit more of a human heart than some of the more cosmic sessions Freddie cut at the time – a bit more contemplative and introspective, but no less open-minded and electrically charged. The assortment of players is all top-shelf – with Billy Cobham, Airto, Lennie White, George Cables, Hubert Laws, and George Benson all backing Freddie up on the set – and titles include a great take on "People Make the World Go Round", plus "Naturally", and "Son of Sky Dive", which grooves just like its papa!

Bobby HutchersonLinger Lane ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Very Good ... $7.99
A beautiful later Blue Note album from vibist Bobby Hutcherson – a set recorded after his famous association with Harold Land, but with a groove that's wonderfully soulful in a whole different way! Bobby plays marimbas instead of vibes this time around, and he's working with his own arrangements for a slightly larger group – one that has some sweet fusion overtones, and these wonderful mellow funk inflections – so that even the mellow cuts have this warmly glowing, ultra-soulful sound that's mighty nice – a bit like some of the work from Gene Harris around the same time. Other players include Jerry Peters on Fender Rhodes, who also helped out with the arrangements – plus Harvey Mason on drums and Ernie Watts on reeds – and a few tracks feature sweet backing vocals from The Waters. The highlight here is a nice moody extended version of "People Make The World Go Round", but all cuts are great, and titles include "Silver Rondo", "Manzanita", "NTU", and his dark cover of "Theme From MASH".

Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love ... CD
CBS, 1985. Used ... $13.99
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – but also pushes the groove in a slightly different way – often using leaner arrangements that are focused on beats, basslines, and keyboards – which only seem to make the warm vocals of the trio sound even more seductive in the end! There's that subtle sense of majesty that the group always had in their music at their height – an influence that might well come from the presence of Jasper – and the album's noteworthy for the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! The album's got a good mellow harmony sound, and other titles include "Liberation", "I Can Hardly Wait", "Insatiable Woman", and "If You Believe In Love". CD

Chet IveyDose Of Soul – The Sylvia Funk Recordings 1971 to 1975 ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The first-ever collection to focus on the work of this lost soulful genius – an artist whose name never made the history books, but who we can always trust when we see it on the label of a funky 45! This set brings together most of those great singles from the early 70s – a wicked run of sharp-edged, always-biting numbers that Chet Ivey recorded for the Sylvia label – run by old school tenor wailer Al Sears! Both Chet and Al had years of experience in music before these singles – but refocus their energy in a badass version of 70s funk – clearly inspired by the James Brown and blacksploitation styles of the time, but given a very special spin, thanks to Chet's personality and way of putting over a tune. The instrumentation is every bit as important here as Ivey's vocals – and titles include "Funky Chit Chat (parts 1 & 2)", "Recipe To Get Down (parts 1 & 2)", "Bad On Bad", "So Fine", "Movin", "When Love Comes Home", "Dose Of Soul", "Party People (parts 1 & 2)", "Get Down With The Geater (part 1)", "Been So Long", "He Say She Say", and "Don't Ever Change".

✨✧ J Dilla (Jay Dee)Donuts ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99
The classic batch of instrumentals from J Dilla – one that strongly transcends the hip hop genre – and perhaps his rawest, and most adventurous listening experience ever! The loopy soul samples, rich synth/electro shine, and thumping bass and soul beats that Dilla largely made his name on are laced throughout, but he also takes things a step into stranger territory – with spacey elements that buzz as much as they groove! The cuts are never less than soulful and funky, and never really steps into his peer Madlib's brand of the weeded out style, either. We love how raw this all feels, too! It's easily identifiable as the work of Jay Dee, but at the same time, wholly unpredictable! One of the best releases that Stone's Throw ever released – instrumental or vocal! Includes "Donuts (Intro & Outro)", "Workinonit", "Waves", "Light My Fire", "People", "Mash", "Airworks", "Lightworks", "Stepson Of The Clapper", "One Eleven", "Don't Cry", "Geek Down", "Thunder", "Gobstopper", "Walkinonit", "U-Love", "Last Donut Of The Night" and more.

✨✧ Chuck JacksonBig New York Soul – Wand Records 1961 to 1966 ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A fantastic collection of work from one of the coolest, classiest soul singers of the 60s – one that we'd rank right up there with Jerry Butler or Walter Jackson for the way that he pushed the genre forward strongly with his music! Chuck Jackson had a few hits back in the day, but underneath those classics is an even more amazing body of work – soul music taken to new levels of adult expression, openly emotive but never in a cliched way – already reaching way beyond roots in gospel and blues for a whole new way of expressing soul and identity! Chuck's had more than a few hits collections issued over the years, but this might be the first set to really get at his genius – fully offering up the wonderful range of tracks he handled for the Wand label back in his early years – including a dozen recordings that were never issued at the time, most of which appear here for the first time ever! Even if you're a Jackson fanatic, like us, and already own his albums for Wand – there's still plenty here to discover, even some rare singles beyond the unissued tracks – all presented in the wonderful Kent Records way. Titles include "Little By Little", "Things Just Ain't Right", "Heed To Belong", "King Of The Mountain", "Big New York", "The Silencer", "Why Some People Don't Like Me", "Why Why Why", "In Between Tears", "All About You", "Forget About Me", "Meet Me Half Way", and "What You Gonna Say" – plus a duet with Dionne Warwick on "Anymore".

Milt JacksonSunflower ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
Proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the soulful modes he'd explored as a leader in the 60s. There's a wonderfully warm and chromatic feel to the set from the start – as Milt's vibes are set in fuller arrangements from Don Sebesky – with added instrumentation from Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Phil Bodner on reeds. The highlight of the album is a nice long take on "People Make The World Go Round", but it's all pretty sweet, and other titles include nice versions of "Sunflower" and "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life" – and Jackson's own "SKJ" and "For Someone I Love". LP, Vinyl record album

CTI/Beat Goes On (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $9.99
Two CTI label gems from vibist Milt Jackson – back to back on a single CD! Sunflower is proof that Milt Jackson was easily the hippest member of the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one of the few who could really open up into different sounds away from that combo! This sweet 70s set for CTI is totally great – a whole new chapter for Jackson's vibes, and a real re-setting of the soulful modes he'd explored as a leader in the 60s. There's a wonderfully warm and chromatic feel to the set from the start – as Milt's vibes are set in fuller arrangements from Don Sebesky – with added instrumentation from Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Phil Bodner on reeds. The highlight of the album is a nice long take on "People Make The World Go Round", but it's all pretty sweet, and other titles include nice versions of "Sunflower" and "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life" – and Jackson's own "SKJ" and "For Someone I Love". Goodbye is classic work from vibist Milt Jackson – opening up his bag a lot for the 70s, in a way that makes for some wonderfully casual grooves! The album's not as moodily funky as some of Jackson's other CTI records, but it is a nice batch of laidback tunes played with a distinctly soulful edge – handled by a group that features Cedar Walton on piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Ron Carter bass, Steve Gadd drums – and some guest trumpet from Freddie Hubbard on the track "SKJ". Other titles include "Opus De Funk", "Detour Ahead","Goodbye", and "Old Devil Moon". CD

Atco, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
Jimmy James and his Vagabonds were a UK group, but they scored nicely in the US with this classic Atlantic side, which was licensed from Pye UK. The record includes their own big hit "Come To Me Softly", plus a number of other soul covers – like "I'm Just A Fool For You Girl", "This Heart Of Mine", "People Get Ready", "The Entertainer", "Ain't No Big Thing", and more!
