✨✧ Sonny ClarkCool Struttin' (XRCD 24 pressing) ... CD
Blue Note/Audio Wave, 1958. Used ... $18.99
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night". CD
(This is an XRCD24 pressing, with higher fidelity and imporved audio quality.)

Imperial WondersIce Cold Energy ... CD
DYOB, Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
Smooth modern soul from The Imperial Wonders – a set recorded on the west coast after the group relocated from the Cleveland scene – done with some of the best LA modes of the time! The ballads here are the real killers – wonderfully deep, with a harmony sound that's nicely matured from the group's earlier singles – taken to sophisticated stepping territory with a gentle groove on some of the best numbers, at a level that's almost like some of the second-generation Philly work of the time. The set offers up some good notes on these obscure recordings – and the long-overdue release of the material is sure to please modern soul fans and collectors around the globe. Titles include "Never Go Looking For Love", "Lord What Is Happening To The World", "The Electric Love Company", "Don't Bite The Hand", "Love Me To The Music", and "I'm A Hostage". CD

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Daahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl".

✨✧ Sonny RollinsTenor Madness (Gold CD) ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking album from Sonny Rollins, largely for the extended track "Tenor Madness", which runs on for 13 minutes, and features him and Coltrane blowing head to head – redefining the sound of the tenor sax in jazz through the course of that amazing track! Backing is by the Red Garland/Paul Chambers/Philly Joe Jones group that backed up 'Trane on many of his Prestige sides, and they work equally well with Rollins – especially on the ballads "When your Lover Has Gone" and "My Reverie", plus the lyrical "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World".

✨✧ O'JaysBack Stabbers ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album for the O'Jays – a set that moved them from the indie ranks to 70s megasoulstatus! After years of bumping around on a variety of labels, and in a variety of styles, the group really exploded with this wonderful set – an album that has them soaring along in the righteous Philly groove of the early 70s – a sound that turned out to be a perfect foil for the trio's sublime, yet earthy harmonies. Arrangements are by some fo the best of the core Philly scene – Thom Bell, Norman Harris, Ronnie Baker, and Bobby Martin – and the album's overflowing with great tunes that completely redefine the sound of group soul in the 70s! Includes megahits "Back Stabbers" and "Love Train" – plus "Shiftless, Shady, Jealous Kind of People", "When The World's At Peace", "Time To Get Down", "Who Am I" and more! CD
