Jimmy Castor BunchPhase Two ... LP
RCA, 1972. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Probably Jimmy's second best album of the 70s – one with many of the same elements as his legendary It's Just Begun record. The band is grooving hard – with plenty of heavy conga, fuzzed out guitar, and trippy grooves that serve as a perfect foil for Jimmy's super-dope sense of humor. The record features a remake of Jimmy's earlier "Hey Leroy", still done with a Latiny groove, but also with many elements of "It's Just Begun" thrown into the funky mix. The album also features Jimmy's guitar-heavy "Tribute To Jim [Hendrix]", and "Luther The Anthropoid", which was a follow-up to "Troglodyte", with similar stoner caveman lyrics! Another tasty cut is "Party Life", a 7 minute Latin funk number with a very War-like groove! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ronnie DysonPhase 2 ... LP
Cotillion, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A self-stated Phase 2 in Ronnie Dyson's career – one that has him moving with a bit more confidence than before, and nicely maturing into a sweet 80s sort of sound! Bobby Eli's at the helm, both on production and rhythm arrangements – and the style here is almost a bit more sophisticated than Dyson's earlier work – kind of that Philly Modern that some of Eli's older contemporaries were hitting. There's no standout hits, but the album's got a nice sense of balance because of that – and overall, the instrumentation's more late 70s than some of the thinner 80s commercial modes. Titles include "Now", "Say You Will", "Heart To Heart", "One More Chance For The Fool", and "Even In The Darkest Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Benny GoodmanLive At Carnegie Hall – 40th Anniversary Concert ... LP
Phase 4, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
An album recorded in celebration of the anniversary of Benny Goodman's 1938 appearance at Carnegie Hall – but one that features a host of famous guest stars that include Mary Lou Williams, Buddy Tate, and Lionel Hampton! The groove is somewhat in the spirit of the older concert, but there's certainly some modern touches too – not just in the way the music is recorded (crystal clear, as is the Phase 4 way), but also in some of the tonal shadings in the tunes – clearly informed with a bit of the modernisms of the intervening 40 years. Titles include "Send In The Clowns", "Star Dust", "I Love A Piano", "Roll Em", "Rocky Raccoon", "String Of Pearls", "Goodbye", "Christopher Columbus", "Lady Be Good", and "Don't Be That Way".

Freddie HubbardHub-Tones (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An album with a classic modernist cover image – and one that's also got the same sort of sound to match – brilliant early work from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, who's really coming into his own as a leader with this date! Freddie's really finding a voice here – a sharper edge than on some of his later albums, at the beginning of a more modernist phase in the mid-60s – when his efforts would mark him as one of the more straight ahead players of the "new thing" scene. There's a careful balance in Hubbard's work here – spurred on by youthful energy of group mates Herbie Hancock on piano, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Hubbard is really brimming over with new ideas – as are the other players – and titles include "Lament for Booker", "Prophet Jennings", "Hub Tones", "For Spee's Sake", and "You're My Everything".

Gene Page/Solomon BurkeCool Breeze – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, 1972. Very Good ... $19.99
Gene Page and Solomon Burke did the music for this obscure blacksploitation film starring Raymond St. Jacques – and although it's not the greatest funky soundtrack you can buy, it's got more than its share of nice moments! There's a bunch of nice instrumentals by Page that are kind of in a mode that's expanded from his work on Blacula, plus a few vocal cuts by Solomon in his "transitional" phase that feature him trying for a hipper sound than on his earlier Atlantic albums. Cuts include "Cool Breeze", "Icbyatht W.T.?", "The Bus", "Fight Back", and "Then I Want To Come Home" – and there's more than a few funky moments to make this one worth while! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roland ShawThemes For Secret Agents ... LP
London/Phase 4, Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
Easily one of the best of the Bond-alike albums of "spy" grooves from the 60s – handled by Brit easy maestro Roland Shaw, with a sound that's in keeping with the best soundtrack work of the time! Shaw's got a jazzy mode here that really opens up some of these tunes – letting the horns and piano come into play a bit more on a few numbers, and differing the songs a lot from their more famous versions used in the films. The package has a great kitschy cover, plus a cool montage of film scenes on the back – and titles include "The Saint", "The Ipcress File", "The Spy Who Came In From The Cold", "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Man From Uncle", "Our Man Flint", and "I Spy".

Vibration Black FingerBlackism ... LP
Enid (UK), 2017. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Incredibly hip work from drummer Lascelle Gordon – a set that really lives up to the compelling name of the group, with a sound that instantly brings together a righteous 70s generation with the current cosmic underground scene! The music is a mix of spiritual and electric jazz modes, but also is unafraid to throw in a bit more in the way of electronics, too – never programmed rhythms, as Lascelle handles all those himself, live – but sometimes with phase shifts on some of the instruments, or a bit of processing – which evokes maybe a bit of electric Miles, or some of the Chicago Underground modes. Trumpet and tenor get nice space on the set, and the album features vocals from Maggie Nichols on one track – and titles include "Emin", "Sawalha", "Goodbye NYC", "Ofilli", "Drums For Peace", and "Bhamara/The Black Bee".

✨✧ Werner MullerDelicado 70 ... CD
Phase 4/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest later albums from German easy maestro Werner Muller – a set that takes on Latin rhythms, but with that particularly bright glow that was coming out of Muller's instrumental scene at the time! The result is a cool mix of modes, of the sort that must have gotten Munich suburbanites out on their living room floors – cha-cha-ing, and doing a bit of groovier moves as well – as Muller mixes cascading strings, light brass, and nicely punctuated bottom sounds! There's some very groovy sounds here – at a level that's a bit like the best from Berry Lippmann, one of Werner's contemporaries – and titles include "Yours", "Mambo Jambo", "Delicado", "Frenesie", "A Banda", "Amor Amor Amor", and "Cumana".

Art BlakeySoul Finger ... LP
Limelight, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of the most obscure mid 60s sides by Blakey – but a great one! The record features a strangely-chosen lineup of the Jazz Messengers that includes Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Lucky Thompson, and John Hicks. Thompson's in his very soulful "just returned from Europe" phase, and his playing is excellent, especially on soprano, which he was reaching for again and again at this point in his career. Hicks shows some nice early soul jazz stylings on piano, and the two-trumpet frontline of Hubbard and Morgan distinguish themselves nicely from each other. The writing's quite nice, too – from the James Bond-esque "Soul Finger" to Morgan's lively "Buh's Bossa". Great stuff, and a record that we don't see that often! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BohannonGittin Off ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
Tremendously tight grooves from Hamilton Bohannon – tunes that have this amazing way of wrapping together the bass, drums, and guitar – all in this fast-chugging style that's plenty funky all the way through! Bohannon was one of the most minimal of his 70s funk contemporaries – and has this way of really focusing in on one key rhythm, then rolling it out with incredible tightness – slowly changing things with some slight phase shifts in tone or timing, but always returning to the core of the tune. The approach is maybe even more striking here than on his previous records – and far grittier than on his later 70s work, too – and at some level, the vocals are almost thrown in as an afterthought, once Bo and the combo get things grooving! Titles include "Come Winter", "South Africa 76", "Feel Good At Midnight", "Gittin Off", and "I'm In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

LaraajiCelestial Vibrations ... CD
SWN/Soul Jazz (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
A beautifully trippy set of tracks from Edward Larry Gordon – an artist who's probably better known for his later Laraaji album recorded with Brian Eno, but one who sounds even better here on this debut set! The sound is very spiritual and meditative – long, drawn-out, side-long tracks that feature Gordon playing a weird, electrified zither – an instrument that's hardly the hokey, European-sounding one from mid-century – and instead a very tripped-out, abstracted one here – very spacey, with some great phase shifting employed in the studio, which creates an almost electronic pulse out of the acoustic instrumentation. The album features two very long tracks – "All Pervading" and "Bethlehem" – done in a way that would make Alice Coltrane proud! CD

ECM, 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A near-legendary album from Pat Metheny – the real birth of the "Metheny sound" on record, and a perfect example of the magically fluid groove that he crafted with keyboardist Lyle Mays! The sound here is hard to describe – and even harder when you try to pick out the individual keyboard and guitar bits – because the overall feel of the record is so well wrapped up and lyrically together, yet manages to do so without falling into any too-slick styles or cliched approaches to fusion. We're stunned at how much this one still delights us over the years, and the record still stands as a landmark in its field. Titles include "San Lorenzo", "Phase Dance", "Jaco", "Aprilwind", "Lonejack", and "Apriljoy". LP, Vinyl record album

The music is extremely subtle, and features 18 musicians playing a variety of violins, cellos, clarinets, pianos, marimbas, and vibes – all in short cyclic passages that move in and out in ways that perfectly illustrate Reich's fascination with phase progressions in modern music.

VariousWest End Story Vol 3 – A Third Edition Of Original Full Length Versions Of History Making Dance Classics From The Label That Started It All ... LP
West End (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Classic club cuts that still sound wonderful all these many years later – tracks from the New York underground at the end of the 70s – and the sorts of grooves that were a big inspiration to the rise of house music too! The package brings together a stunning selection of cuts from the West End label – an imprint who was maybe second only to Salsoul for its importance to the New York clubs, but also one who maybe kept more of a commitment to the underground, both in the themes of its music and in the way it really let the DJs and mixers do their thing! Tracks on this third volume include "When You Touch Me (Larry Levan mix)" by Taana Gardner, "Let Me Feel Your Heartbeat" by Glass, "Music Turns Me On (Tee Scott mix)" by Sparque, "When The Sh*t Hits The Fan" by Master Boogies Song & Dance, "Disco Dance (Tom Moulton mega mix)" by Michele, "Chillin Out" by Inez Broosk, "Speak Well (Tom Moulton mix)" by Philly USA, and "Keep On Dancin (Francois K Phase 2)" by Forrrce.

✨✧ Ted DanielTed Daniel Solo – At Abbazia San Zeno Pisa, Italy ... CD
Ujamaa, 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ted Daniel may be one of the most compelling sound-shapers we've ever heard on the trumpet – a very under-acknowledged musician whose playing of the 70s and 80s continues to really grab us over the years! This unissued live set is from 1981, and it features Ted on a variety of horns – blowing in a special way that both links to more conventional trumpet modes, yet also shows a knowledge of the more open phrasing that some of his generation were using – like Lester Bowie or Leo Smith. Yet unlike some of those artists, Ted's performance, although free, is never that far from the more familiar roots of trumpet expression – a fantastic balance that really comes through beautifully in the music. There's a few unusual approaches here – one track features a trumpet played into a grand piano, another a flugelhorn through a phase shifter – but even these never go too far out. Titles include "Sunny Side Up", "Closer & Closer", "Vicissitudes Of A Lover", "Al Fine", "Ciao Bene", and "Deac's Ceremonial Testimonial". CD

Wonderful work from the early solo years of Teddy Pendergrass! The record's a monstrous mix of mellow soul and sophisticated tunes – one that pushes Teddy way past his earlier role in Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, into mature male soul territory that few others could match! The sound is sublime throughout – easily the next phase for the Gamble & Huff empire, and way past the easier Philly hit modes of a few years before. Titles include the wonderful "Close The Door", the kind of classy upscale modern soul that kept Philly going strong into the end of the 70s – plus "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "When Somebody Loves You Back", and "Cold, Cold World".

Woody HermanWoody ... LP
Cadet, 1970. Sealed ... $1.99
The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two! The album still features one side of upbeat groovy tunes – recorded with Richard Evans in a style that's a mix of big band funk and Cadet Records soul – and which show Woody to be a lot hipper than anyone might have thought at the time – putting together some amazing arrangements of tunes that soar with great power, still very jazzy, but also filled with a youthful energy that's really great. Includes a great version of "How Can I Be Sure", plus cool originals like "Smiling Phases", "A Stone Called Person", and "Saccharine Sally". The difference here, though, is that some of the tunes also have some vocals by Woody – sounding pretty cool, actually, and almost spoken – and that one side of the record is dominated by a long version of "Blues In The Night", with a solo by Tom Harrell.

Collected work by Blo – a hip Nigerian funk ensemble from the mid 70s! The group have a more complicated sound than some of their contemporaries – adding in dubbier stylings and bits of psychedelic guitar to the more common Afro-Funk percussion – in a mode that almost sounds like it's got traces of Can or other proggish groups, as you might hear on some of Tony Allen's more recent work, or on some of the early 70s Brit post-colonial crossover bands, like Assagai or Cymande. It all makes for a very interesting sound – marking the group as one of the most unique of their generation!

Great work from Moody's "second phase" – the post-Overbrook time in which he picks up the flute, drops a bit of the bop style, and starts working in a much more complicated style that showed that he had a hell of a lot of room to grow as an artist! This album's Moody's second for Argo – recorded in 1959, with help from the brilliant arranger Tom McIntosh. Players include Johnny Coles, Musa Kaleem, Gene Kee, and McIntosh – and the album features the first reading of Moody's famous "Darben The Redd Foxx", plus "Cookie", "RBQ", "Daahoud", and McIntosh's perennial favorite, "With Malice Toward None".

Red/Wah Wah (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
JB Banfi gets a big nod from Klaus Schulze on the back cover of this rare 70s set – and for good reason, too – as the music's very much in the best analogue electronic work that Schulze himself helped to pioneer at the time – even though Klaus claims that Banfi is an even better composer! The album's served up from a host of electronic sources – a range of moog synths, Arp, Farfisa, Logan string ensemble, Roland echo chamber, Eventide Clockworks phaser, and other sources – all used in ways by Banfi that are soaring and spacious, but never sleepy – always with this slightly upbeat vibe and sense of color that was maybe one of the differences between the 70s French electronic scene and the German one. Titles include "Paradox Streams", "Audio Emotion", "Gang", and "Goodbye My Little Star". LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe the boldest album so far from The Cookers – a tremendous assemblage of legendary jazz talent, working together as a perfect unit on this recording! There's a sharpness and sense of unity that really holds the record together – part of which comes from the arrangements, by Billy Harper or trumpeter David Weiss – the only slightly younger member of the group, and a great guiding voice to the project. Speaking of voices, Billy Harper's is loud and proud – that soaring, spiritual tenor that we love so much – especially on the group's readings of his compositions – and in addition to Harper and Weiss, other group members include Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Donald Harrison on alto, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. There's a balance of darkness and light that really makes the album sparkle – and titles include "Call Of The Wild & Peaceful Heart", "Beyond Forever", "Third Phase", "Teule's Redemption", "Blackfoot", "Thy Will Be Done", and "Oceans Of Time".

Nozaki's really upped his vision here – and not only works in strings on some of the more soaring numbers, but also creates these gentler, poetic passages at mellower moments – all blended together at a level that makes this the most sophisticated Jazztronik set we've ever heard. Titles include "Now", "DGA", "Lost Melody", "Parade", "Warp", "The City Beyond", "Peach Boy", and "A New Phase Of Life". CD

The group's format is plenty darn famous – adding a lot of horns to hip riffing grooves – but despite countless plays on oldies stations over the years, this initial album still has a power that's undeniable – a way of putting the whole thing together that really uses the best elements of the late 60s studio – handled with sweet production from James William Guerico that rivals his best work for Chicago! Even the lead vocals by David Clayton Thomas hold up nicely – and the set includes the classics "Variations On A Theme By Eric Satie", "And When I Die", "Smiling Phases", "More & More", "Spinning Wheel", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

Epic/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Way before Tony Orlando started tying a ribbon around that old oak tree, he cut some wonderful work for the Epic label – early 60s Brill Building pop at its finest, recorded with a host of top-shelf talents! Arrangements here are by Carole King, Alan Lorber, Garry Sherman, and other New York pop luminaries – all of whom cast Tony's vocals in a surprisingly soulful blend of strings with deeper drums and bass – a groove that's a bit like some of the uptown soul that was coming into play on the scene at the time, and which is a lot less than the simple pop you might expect. Orlando's presentation of the material is really great – never prone to easy gimmicks, and often with a slightly fragile style that's a far cry from his 70s fame. Titles include "Bless You", "My Baby's A Stranger", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", "Tell Me Where To Run To", "That Lovin Touch", "Shirley", "The Loneliest", "I'll Be There", "Accept It", "I'd Never Find Another You", "Talkin About You", and "Some Kinda Wonderful". 27 tracks in all – with great notes on this phase of Tony's career!

Part of the situation is that much of the work came out as cheap 45s, or cassette-only releases – which didn't lend themselves to the same level of collecting – and other groups who started dark hit the bigtime and went onto great fame – like Human League or Cabaret Voltaire – but for every one of those, there were a hundred left behind in the shifting sands of time – only to be discovered by the tireless efforts of the current generation! Titles include "Universe" by The Lord, "X Cell" by Silicon Valley, "Oscillations" by The Disintegrators, "Red Suit" by Lives Of Angels, "Destination" by Echophase, and "Club Paris" by Berserk In A Hayfield.

Vogue/Be! (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever from French saxophonist Barney Wilen – a set that's legendary not only for its famous cover image, but for all the wonderful music underneath! The record's maybe the strongest to deliver on the modern promise that Wilen exhibited in his music during the 60s – but also has a tightness that makes it quite different from some of his more loopy projects – a way of putting things together that's bold and modern, yet also wonderfully controlled as well! As you might guess from the title, the record's based around the twelve phases of the Zodiac – and each tune has a slightly different sense of energy – all delivered by Wilen on tenor, with Karl Berger on vibes and piano, JF Jenny Clark on bass, and Jacques Thollot on drums – all players who are reaching towards free jazz modes, but often hang slightly inside, which makes for a beautiful balance overall. Titles include "Cancer", "Lion", "Vierge", "Capricorne", "Balance", "Scorpion", and "Poissons". LP, Vinyl record album
