✨✧ Johnny GriffinJohnny Griffin Sextet ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $6.99
Few people could make a session cook like Johnny Griffin in his early years – and this late 50s sextet date is great proof of that fact! The album's a relaxed, open, almost unstructured set that might be dubbed a "blowing session", were it not for the tightness of the players and the relatively unified feel of the date. Griffin's tenor is very firmly in the lead, and he's very clearly the leader here – helping shape the sound of the group that includes Donald Byrd on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, Kenny Drew on piano, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. There's some really hard-wailing extended numbers that come across as full-on hardbop workouts – really driving things along as you might guess with a rhythm section like that in action – but other tunes show some more fully-fleshed sounds from the group – that slight undercurrent of modern expression that was always present in Griff's music. Titles include "Johnny GG", "Catharsis", "Stix Trix", and "What's New" – plus a take on "Woody N You" that just has Griffin wailing along with the rhythm section! CD

Joni HaastrupWake Up Your Mind (deluxe vinyl version) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99
Funky funky solo work from Joni Haastrup – an artist who's also known for his work in Monomono, and who sounds equally great on his own! Joni's got this tight approach that wraps together Nigerian grooves of the 70s scene, and some bolder soul star energy that would be right at home in the US – a kind of powerhouse approach that really sends these tunes home beautifully! The lyrics are in English, which really helps broaden the appeal of the cuts – and the production has these cool compressed elements that are partly like the more psych-inspired modes of other Afro Funk groups, and partly those of the UK soul scene of the 70s. We've never heard a record exactly like this, and the whole thing's a truly memorable treasure from this key moment in African music. Cuts include "Watch Out", "Do The Funkro", "Greetings", "Free My People", "Wake Up Your Mind", and "Champions & Superstars". LP, Vinyl record album

Jim HallJazz Impressions Of Japan ... LP
A&M (Japan), 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $44.99
Sharp sounds from guitarist Jim Hall – a record that's filled with all the cool, complicated lines the musician could muster on his instrument – yet a record that also manages to swing a bit too! The sound here is a great evolution from the sound of Hall's music in the 50s – even more modern at most moments, with unique phrasing that shows just how much Jim continued to grow over the decades – delivered at a level that's very fresh, and without a debt to any other guitarist on the planet! Part of the album's unique feel comes from the large amount of original Hall compositions – interpreted by Jim with a trio that also features Don Thompson on piano and bass and Terry Clarke on drums – on titles that include "Kyoto Bells", "Echo", "Without Words", "Light", "Something For Now", and "Two Special People". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie HancockSound System ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The follow up to Herbie's groundbreaking hit album Future Shock. There's some rehashing of themes here, with the remake of "Rockit" called "Hardrock" here – basically the same number with some heavy guitar added and a few different solos – plus similar numbers that continue the electro feel, but also add in a peppering of Bill Laswell's world music interest. The album's worth it alone for the presence of D St on a few tracks – and titles include "Hardrock", "Metal Beat", "Karabali", "Junku", "People Are Changing" and "Sound System".

✨✧ Herbie HancockThrust/Man-Child/Secrets (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Mid 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A trio of heavy-hitting albums from Herbie Hancock – served up together in one collection, with bonus tracks too! First up is Thrust – killer electric work from Herbie Hancock – right on par with his groundbreaking Headhunters set, but a bit spacier too! The album features a Headhunters-solid lineup – with Bennie Maupin on saxes, Paul Jackson on bass, Mike Clark on drums, and Bill Summers on percussion – all grooving wonderfully with Herbie on a set of super-long tracks! Hancock himself handles a host of incredible keyboards – Fender Rhodes, clavinet, Arp, and lots more – all in a lean electric style that still sounds as fresh today as it did way back in the mid 70s – perhaps even more so, given the return to this sort of basic groove that has happened in recent years! Tracks are long, tight, and super funky – and titles include "Actual Proof", "Palm Grease", "Spank-A-Lee", and "Butterfly". Next is the album Man-Child – funky mid 70s Herbie Hancock – one his funkiest albums of the era! Herbie plays a host of cool keyboards – like Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and he's joined by a group that includes just about all of the Headhunters – including Paul Jackson on bass and Mike Clarke on drums – plus help from a great array of other excellent guests – including Bennie Maupin and Wayne Shorter on reeds, Harvey Mason on drums, and even some guest keyboards from Stevie Wonder! The album's great – maybe a bit understated than Thrust, but still equally wonderful – and the whole thing's worth it alone for the classic uptempo cut "Hang Up Your Hang Ups" – alongside other cuts that include "Bubbles", "Heartbeat", and "Sun Touch". Last up is Secrets – soulful 70s work from Herbie Hancock – a record that tightens things up from the Headhunters and Sextant sessions, but which still retains a lot of their depth and charm! Players here including some previous partners – like Bennie Maupin on reeds and Paul Jackson on bass – plus the mighty Wah Wah Watson on guitars, James Levi on drums, Kenneth Nash on percussion, and Ray Parker on additional guitar. Tracks are tightly electric fusion, but still have some of the sharper tones of Herbie's electric work – weird moogy moments mixed into more straight ahead funk – all with a sound that's not unlike some of Ramsey Lewis' best Columbia work of the period. Herbie plays Fender Rhodes, Arp, clavinet, mini-moog, and more – and titles include "Doin' It", "Spider", "Swamp Rat", "People Music", and a remake of "Cantelope Island" that's pretty darn tasty! 2CD set features 8 bonus tracks – all the single mixes of the 45s from all three albums!

✨✧ Derrick Harriott & OthersDerrick Harriott – Reggae, Funk, & Soul 1969 To 1975 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99 32.99
The title certainly gets it right – as Derrick Harriott serves up a wonderful mix of sounds that owes plenty to American funk and soul of the early 70s – some cool Kingston covers of famous US tunes, and some other originals that are equally groovy overall! The set's one of the best that we've ever heard from the Dub Store label – and almost has a Soul Jazz level of track selection – really wonderful work that either features Derrick in the lead, or working with some hip contemporaries, in a groove that's totally great – neither straight reggae, but also quite far from more familiar funk and soul too. Titles include "Black Moses" by The Preacher, "Tougher Than Tough" by I Roy, "Brown Baby" by Derrick Harriott, "Hell Below" by Crystal Generation, "Going Back Home" by The Chosen Few, "Psychedelic Train" by Derrick Harriott, "Slippery" by Karl Bryan & The Crystalites, "Home Sweet Home" by Bongo Herman & Les, "Rescue The Children" by Junior Murvin, "Phoenix" by Noel Brown, "People Make The World Go Round" by The Chosen Few, and "Message From A Black Man" by Derrick Harriott.

Julius HemphillReflections (aka Coon Bidness) ... CD
Freedom, 1972/1975. Used ... $6.99
2 different sessions by Julius Hemphill – one from 1975, with Arthur Blythe, Hamiet Bluiett, and Abdul Wadud; the other from 1972, with Bluiett, Wadud, and Baikida Carroll. The 1972 session's a bit more interesting, and was recorded in St. Louis by Oliver Sain (of all people!). It's one long track entitled "The Hard Blues", and has an excellent mix of styles, emotions, and voices – with all the players getting in some beautiful solo moments. The 1975 session's not too bad either, but it's just a little too self-consciously out, and lacks the warmth of the other piece. Other tracks include "Skin 2", "Lyric", "Reflections", and "Skin One".

HesitationsSolid Gold ... LP
Kapp, 1968. Very Good ... $3.99
Although the Hesitations themselves never struck gold, they were a great lost soul group who here do some excellent versions of bigger hits on the charts. The band had already scored nicely with their versions of hits like "Born Free" and "The Impossible Dream" – and on this album, they do nice takes of "Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Stay In My Corner", "Groovin", "Human", "Honey", "People Got To Be Free", and "Brown Eyed Woman", which they re-title "Blue Eyed Woman". Arrangements and instrumentation by Johnny Pate, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Although the cover of this one makes it look like a saucy European film – as does the tag line, which reads "The Motion Picture for people over 18!" – most of the record's in kind of a dreamy period mode, with sweeping orchestrations that are a bit snoozy. Hard to believe, with titles like "17", "Erotic Imaginings In The Garden", "Reflections In The House", "At Home Again", and "First Experience". LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie HubbardPolar AC ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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!

Human LeagueAnthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group ... CD
Virgin, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
Way more than just another anthology – as this 2CD collection features a great range of sounds from these legendary synth pop legends – plus some rare mixes and unusual versions too! The collection definitely includes those early 80s singles that made Human League so great – but there's also some of their weird early analogue electronics, too – plus some later tracks that are surprisingly great, and which appear here on CD format for the first time ever – really rounding out the 30 track package in a great way! Titles include "The Dignity Of Labour (part 3)", "Empire State Human", "Fascination (ext version)", "Lebanon (single)", "Hello Louise (DJ edit)", "Sound Of The Crowd (inst)", "Hard Times", "Nightclubbing", "Boys & Girls", "Night People (radio edit)", "Heart Like A Wheel (William Orbit rmx)", "Life On Your Own", "Human (ext version)", "I Need Your Loving (DJ edit)", "Filling Up With Heaven", "Live Is All That Matters (edit)", "Never Let Me Go", "Sky (radio edit)", "Night People (radio)", "Mirror Man", "You Remind Me Of Gold", "Open Your Heart", and of course, "Don't You Want Me".

✨✧ Jon Irabagon, John Hegre, & Niles Are DronenAxis ... CD
Rune Grammafon (Norway), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
You might know the sax work of Jon Irabagon in the group Mostly Other People Do The Killing – but here, he's set up in a completely different format – one that shows the growing role of Irabagon on the global jazz underground! The music here is freely improvised with a trio that includes John Hegre on guitar and Nils Are Dronen on drums – in kind of a slow-shifting way that begins with more contemplative interaction between the players, then builds to a fiercer frenzy – often with Jon's tenor as the most outspoken instrument in the pack, until the drums come in and take over with a bit more power. The album features two long tracks – "Berlin" and "Fukuoka" – recorded by the same group, but almost two years apart. CD

✨✧ Isley BrothersHarvest For The World ... LP
T Neck, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Fantastic Isleys from the mid-70s! The record has the group dropping their heavy funk style (which was sounding a bit tired by this point), and picking up a strident soul groove that buoyed their tracks with a spiritual sound that reminds us of some of the best moments from the Brother Brother Brother album! This one includes the incredible song "Harvest For The World", one of the most anthemic soul songs of the 70s – and a monster groover that mixes message-driven vocals with some tight guitar work. Other tracks include "You Still Feel the Need", "Let Me Down Easy", and "People of Today" – and the whole album's one of the group's best from the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
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 features bonus tracks – "Caravan Of Love (ext single mix)" and "Insatiable Woman (12" version)". CD

Guerssen (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99
If the title doesn't give it away, the contents certainly do – a heady helping of articles that definitely live up to the psychedelic promise on the cover! The magazine really digs deep – way more so than other psych publications we've seen – and the scope of material here is pretty obscure, and very well-covered – with articles on Bob Martin, Dana Westover, David Bixby, Michael Yonkers, William Nowick, Merrell Fankhauser, The Tree People, and other talents from the psychedelic underground – served up alongside a host of reviews – both of vintage psych titles and some contemporary gems too!
