✨✧ Gregory PorterTake Me To The Alley ... CD
Blue Note, 2016. Used ... $8.99
The greatness of Gregory Porter continues to grow and grow – as the vocalist keeps moving past the straighter jazz of his roots, into a role as one of the greatest soul singers of the 21st Century! Porter's got a depth and maturity that few folks have had in recent years – especially in the realm of male vocals – very much that manner of important 70s singers like Bill Withers, Billy Paul, or Al Jarreau – who were schooled in jazz, but worked more in soulful styles that gave them a wider reach, and helped them to find a very personal voice in the process! We'd easily place Gregory in that legacy – one that he's definitely earned by this point – and he sounds arguably even better here than on his debut for Blue Note – working with arrangements from co-producer Kamau Kenyatta, who mixes in just the right current of jazz to keep things on track with the energy we first loved in Porter's first records – while still really letting his new energy open up and soar. Titles include "Holding On", "Insanity", "Don't Lose Your Steam", "Daydream", "Don't Be A Fool", "More Than A Woman", and "French African Queen". Also features different versions of two songs, with guest appearances – "Holding On" with Kem, and "Insanity" with Lalah Hathaway. CD

Porter WagonerI Wonder Where You Are Tonight ... CD
Southern Routes, 1960s. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Prime greatness from Porter Wagoner – a set that offers up a few of his hits, but also includes some overlooked gems from his important 60s years on RCA! Wagoner's been well-served with other "hits" collections on the market, but this set is something else entirely – put together in a way that really understands what makes the man so great, especially in his earliest years – before Porter was maybe pushing some of his gimmick or duet modes a bit too far. Much of the work here is the kind of straightforward material that first put Wagoner on the map – and the set features 29 titles that include "Everything She Touches Gets The Blues", "Dark Waters", "I Wonder Where You Are Tonight", "In The Shadows Of The Wine", "Your Old Love Letters", "Pay Day", "A Satisfied Mind", "An Old Log Cabin For Sale", "Trying To Forget The Blues", and "Hey Maw".

Andrew Raffo DewarSix Lines Of Transformation/Music For Eight Bamboo Flutes ... CD
Porter, 2008. Used ... $2.99
Atmospheric reed work from composer Andrew Raffo Dewar – music that seems to start in the territory of some of Yusef Lateef's more exotic sides, then take off into much more abstract directions! The CD features two extended pieces – the first of which is "Six Lines Of Transformation", played by a sextet that includes bass clarinet, quarter-tone flute, bassoon, trumpet, bass, and percussion – all handled with a mix of earthy tones and more avant expressions. "Music For Eight Bamboo Flutes" follows – played by the octet imagined by the title – in a very weird way that has the flutes hovering together in unique sonic space – more just abstract tones instead of notes, with a chillingly cold sort of feel!

Burton GreeneLive At The Woodstock Playhouse 1965 ... CD
Porter, 1965. Used ... $6.99
A long lost quartet recording led by pianist Burton Greene recorded at the Woodstock Playhouse in 1965! It's incredible stuff, from the loose, sparse and lyrical sounds to the more muscular, tense and riveting passages. Just a read of the lineup is exciting – Greene's working with drummer Rashied Ali, Marion Brown on alto sax and Reggie Johnson on bass – and the sounds live up to promise! The centerpiece of the set is a longer run through of the Greene composition "Cluster Quartet" that appeared on his Burton Greene Quartet LP on ESP the same year (although we think Brown is the only player on this live set who appeared on the LP), while the set opens with the lighter and moodier, "Tree Theme II". The nearly half hour closer "Like It Is" works in both the heavier and the sparer dynamics. We can only hope Porter Records continues to bring such amazing rare jazz to light! CD

Byard LancasterPersonal Testimony – Then & Now ... CD
Concert Artists/Porter, 1979/2008. Used ... $8.99
An expanded version of this rare album from Philly reedman Byard Lancaster – one that features bonus tracks from recent years! The "Then" part of the album is the album Personal Testimony from 1979 – a wonderfully lyrical and aptly-titled solo set by Lancaster! We typically associate solo sets with AACM members, and Lancaster's free jazz and loft community credentials put him in a similar camp – though he's working in a different mode than you might hear on a solo set from a player like Joseph Jarman or Roscoe Mitchell. Overall, the compositions and playing work along more structured and grooving lines than a fully improvised set – never losing sight of melodic emphasis, or the earthy underlying rhythms – and Lancaster makes some especially nice use of overdubbing on a couple of pieces. He plays piano on one number, but the rest of the set explores all of the various reeds he's known for – alto, flute, piccolo, bass clarinet, and soprano sax. Titles include "Miss Nikki", "In Lovingkindness", "Dogtown", "Hoodoo", "Brotherman", "What A Friend We Have In Jesus", "Marianne & Alicia", "Brian", and "Mind Exercise". CD then features 6 more tracks recorded in 2008 in a similar solo mode, showing that Byard hasn't lost any sense of his genius over the years – and can still express himself in a wonderfully spiritual way. Titles include "Prayer Cry", "Tribalize Lancaster", "Afroville", "Free Mumia", and "Global Key". CD

Nick RosenInto The Sky ... CD
Porter, 2010. Used ... $5.99
The debut full length from bass player, field recorder and soaringly spirited composer Nick Rosen – a pretty darn beautiful cosmic jazz influenced gem in the Build An Ark school of modern, genre defying starry soundscapes! The set is arranged by Rosen and Build An Ark's Miguiel Atwood-Ferguson, who also plays violin, viola, piano and more – joined by fellow Ark dwellers Dexter Story, Mia Doi Todd, Carlos Nino and others. That said, this is not a Build An Ark record, it's Rosen's – whose work is a bit more grounded in jazz, but just as passionate, joyous and inviting. The instrumentation is ambitious, but there's a sense of intimacy, too. Flute, vibes, percussion, flugelhorn and French horn, harp, cello, bassoon and other elements bring it to flight. A pretty wonderful record – and the first of what we hope will be a long career and great music to come from 25-year-old Nick Rosen! Includes "Ancestral Echoes", "Twin Harbors", "Manya", "Mindy's Song", "Blossoming Song", "Nature's Breath", "In Her Smile". "For People", "Rainfall", "African Sun" and "Winter Into Spring". CD

✨✧ Sounds Of Liberation (Byard Lancaster/Khan Jamal)Sounds Of Liberation ... LP
Dogtown/Porter, 1972. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most soulful sessions ever from the Philly jazz scene of the 70s – a super-hip record that features work from Byard Lancaster on alto, Khan Jamal on vibes, and Monette Sudler on guitar! All players are at their best here – especially Sudler, who sounds really amazing riffing and grooving behind the other players – working with a sense of rhythm that we never quite find on her other records, even though we love them all quite a bit. Lancaster is mostly straight down the middle, with a really searching sort of tone – and Jamal's vibes have a lot more bite than usual, too. Other players include Billy Mills on bass, Omar Hill on percussion, Rashid Salim on congas, and Dwight James on drums – and titles include "Happy Tuesday", "Billie One", "We'll Tell You Later", "New Horizons 1", and "New Life".

Key Of Life (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent overview of the ways in which the Japanese scene has really changed in recent years – moving past the straighter soul, house, and club jazz of a decade ago – into a range of creative styles that are completely their own! There's definitely a current of jazz that runs through most of this work, but the presentation is very unique overall – groups that change up rhythms in interesting ways, shift the instrumentation and production modes into very groundbreaking territory, and keep pushing the boundaries in the process! There's only one name here we'd heard before – Takuya Kuroda, who gave us records here in the US – but all other artists are new to our ears. Titles include "Porter" by Daiki Tsuneta Millennium Parade, "Spur" by Les Komatis, "Milestones" by Racha Fola, "Bring Me To Having A Curry Rice" by Banda Choro Eletrico, "WTRDR Suite 2 SDOKS" by Osawa Birdwatcherz, "Spank A Lee Jam" by Naked Voice, "The Source" by Satoshi Yoshida, "Green Dolphin Street" by Maya Hatch, and "Waiting In Fain" by Takumi Moriya.

Legacy, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The Man In Black behind the Iron Curtain! The show was recorded live in Prague in 1978 – finding Johnny backed not only by his impeccable Tenessee Three, but it also features the chorus from The Johnny Cash Show – making it much more than a typical concert. The cultural gravity weighs strongly on the performances, without weighing the set down. A warmly charismatic concert from waning near end of the Cold War era. A great setlist of Cash classics, including "Ring Of Fire", "I Still Miss Someone", "Sunday Morning Coming Down", "I Walk The Line", "Casey Jones, "Hey Porter", "Wabash Cannonball", "City Of New Orleans", "I Still Miss Someone" and more.

ChaseChase ... CD
Epic/One Way, 1971. Used ... $6.99
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". CD

Tightly funky work from The Du-Rites – a combo who just appear to be a duo, but at a level that seems to make their groove even funkier than it might be otherwise! There's no horns, no singers – just heavy drums and lots of riffing guitar – plus bits of bass, organ, and other percussion handled by the pair– all in ways that slightly flavor the main mix of guitar and drums that lies at the album's heavy core! There's a few moments that are maybe more voice than vocal – calls or comments on the tunes, sometimes with a comedic vibe – and titles include "Woody The Wino", "Life Is A Chitlin Circuit", "Ballad For A Fallen Country", "Black Olives", "The Bronx Is Burning", and "Mr Porter".

Gil EvansNew Bottle Old Wine ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Blue Note, 1958. Used ... $7.99
A masterpiece through and through from arranger Gil Evans – a record of swinging modern backdrops, used to showcase both the solo talents of a young Cannonball Adderley, and the dynamic energy of Evans himself! Cannon's sharp-edged early tone is a really great sound for the record – far more modern than you might expect from later funk and soul sides of the 60s – and perfectly poised next to Gil's larger back drops to reignite a host of older tunes with new energy! And while the titles are familiar, the readings certainly are not – as the Evans pen has really changed things up beautifully – as you'll hear on numbers that include "St Louis Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Willow Tree", "Struttin' With Some Barbeque", "Lester Leaps In", "Round About Midnight", "Manteca", and "Bird Feathers".

Verve, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A record that might have made Ella Fitzgerald turn over in her grave if it was handled the wrong way – but fortunately one that comes as a real surprise, with an organic quality that we never would have expected when we first heard about the project! The album features Ella's older vocals from the Verve years, recast over new orchestrations by the London Symphony Orchestra – who work here in a decidedly jazz-based mode, and maybe make the whole thing feel just like some "with strings" session from the classic Verve years, but with some slight modern arrangements. The presentation also features three "duets" of sorts – one with new vocals added by Gregory Porter, two others with trumpet and vocals pulled from her recordings with Louis Armstrong – but overall, the whole thing really seems to work best when it's just Ella in the spotlight. Titles include "Misty", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "People Will Say We're In Love", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", and "Let's Do It". CD

Caesar FrazierHail Caesar!/'75 ... CD
Eastbound/Ace (UK), 1972/1975. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
2 killers from organist Caesar Frazier – back to back on one CD! Hail Ceasar is a monster bit of funky jazz – filled with long tracks that all jam mightily, all at a level that matches or tops the best work coming out of Prestige or Blue Note Records at the time! The set is one of the rare few on the Eastbound jazz subsidiary of Detroit soul powerhouse Westbound Records – and it's the first to feature organist Ceasar Frazier as a leader – really grooving hard here with a Prestige-styled combo that includes Idris Muhammad on funky drums, Melvin Sparks on heavy guitar, and Houston Person on soulful sax – all produced with a gritty gritty edge by the legendary Bob Porter! The whole album's great – filled with incredible cuts that include a version of "Hicky-Burr", the first Bill Cosby theme – plus the tracks "Make It With You", "Running Away", "Hail Ceasar!", and "See-F". Ceasar Frazier 75 is a tightly grooving set that expands his sound a bit from the first! All the best elements are still in place here – including funky organ from Ceasar, production from jazz funk maestro Bob Porter, and a hip range of players that includes Horace Ott, Wilbur Bascomb, and Bernard Purdie. But the overall sound is somewhat shifted too – brought more into the tightly jamming jazz funk mode of the mid 70s – a bit richer and fuller overall, yet never in a way that's slick or sloppy – just more like some of the best later sides on Prestige or Fantasy from the same stretch. The record features a crazy version of the "Mighty Mouse Theme", a mellow take on the Isley's "Summer Breeze", Stevie Wonder's great "Living For The City", and the original "Funk It Down". CD

Cameron GravesPlanetary Prince ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
A fantastic debut as a leader from pianist Cameron Graves – an artist you might know from Kamasi Washington's album The Epic – and an even more tremendous talent when he gets his own chance to shine in the spotlight! Graves has a very bold, righteous vision here – a mode that's in the same California Get Down spirit as Washington's music, but with more focus on the structures built up by the piano – almost a post-modal approach, with soaring spiritual currents – served up not just by Graves on the keys, but also by Kamasi Washington on tenor, Philip Dizack on trumpet, and Ryan Porter on trombone! The three horns have a way of wrapping together as a core, then soaring to the skies – while Graves pumps up the movement with a great deal of energy, and the soloists break off on their own. The group also features bass from Thundercat on two tracks, and Hadrien Faraud on the rest – plus drums from Ronald Bruner. Graves produced – which gives the record a very different feel than other Mack Avenue releases – and titles include "Isle Of Love", "The Lucifer Rebellion", "El Diablo", "Adam & Eve", "Planetary Prince", "The End Of Corporatism", and "Satania Our Solar System".

Stax/Craft, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD & 7 inch ... $53.99 59.99
An incredible tribute to the genius of Memphis Soul legend Issac Hayes – one that's overflowing with unreleased material, and presented in a totally cool package! The set's shaped like a 7" single box – and is book-like, with very detailed notes by Stax historian Robert Gordon, alongside page after page of vintage photos and other cool images, too. And inside some of the pages are 4 super-cool CDs – each of which has a different theme that further exposes Ike's genius! CD1 is titled "Soul Songwriter Soul Producer" – and features two dozen tracks that Hayes handled for Stax/Volt – material by The Astors, Danny White, David Porter, Floyd Newman, Johnnie Taylor, Charlie Rich, Judy Clay, The Charmels, Soul Children, Billy Eckstine, The Emotions, Ruby Johnson, and others. CD2 is titled "Volt & Enterprise Singles" – and features all the 7" tracks released by Isaac Hayes during his time on those labels – including two tracks done as a duet with David Porter, two more as Sir Isaac & The Do-Dads, and even a rare Radio Spot too! Things really get interesting on CD3, titled "Cover Man" – which features those cool, long extrapolations of other folks' songs that Hayes pioneered on his albums – but included here with unreleased material too. There's a great never-heard take on "Windows Of The World" – plus unreleased PUSH Black Expo material from 1970 – live takes on "Ten Commandments Of Love", "Just Want To Make Love To You/Rock Me Baby", "I Stand Accused", and "Stormy Monday". CD4 is maybe the coolest of the bunch – titled "Jam Master", with those long grooves that Ike did in the studio while putting together records. Almost all the tracks on CD4 are previously unissued – including "You've Made Me So Very Happy", "Black Militant's Place", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Do Your Thing (extended jam)", "Groove A Thon (extended jam)", and "Hung Up On My Baby (extended jam)". And if all that isn't enough, the set even comes with a cool 7" replica of Ike's first single for the Youngstown label – "Laura We're On Our First Go-Round". CD

One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, but also set amidst arrangements that have a bit more soul than the average Chicago blues session from the same time. The set features a number of originals by Stax regulars like Booker T and David Porter – and titles include "The Hunter", "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Crosscut Saw", "Down Don't Bother Me", "Laundromat Blues", and "Personal Manager".

The production is a bit modern – even though handled by old Prestige studio maestro Bob Porter – but the performance is very vintage – and titles include "Funky Carnival", "Mean Old Amtrak", "Truckin", "Miss Otis Regrets", and "Birk's Works".

A rare little set from The Meters – recorded in their home turf of New Orleans in the mid 70s, but with a groove that's as raw as their Josie Records albums of the 60s! The vibe here is a great change from the polished production the group were getting over at Warner Brothers – and the concert setting allows the group to really stretch out on some numbers – taking them into instrumental jamming territory you never would have heard on a two minute single from years back! Instrumentation includes keyboards from Art Neville, guitar from Leo Nocentelli, bass from George Porter, drums from Zig Modeliste, and percussion from Cyril Neville – and almost all group members vocalise on a few chorus moments. Titles include long takes of "A Minor", "Wildflower", and "Feel So Good" – plus the shorter numbers "Chicken Strut" and "Mardi Gras Mambo". CD

Charles MingusClown ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... $29.99
Stunning stuff – and one of the greatest Charles Mingus albums of all time – a true treasure recorded in that magical year of 1957, when Mingus was finally finding his strongest voice in modern music! The album's near-perfect from start to finish – as bold a statement in jazz as anyone might be allowed to make in the late 50s, yet still always focused, driven, and wrapped up with a tremendous sense of energy. The tracks are all quite long – perfect vehicles for Mingus to reach his full level of expression – played by a group that includes Curtis Porter on tenor and alto sax, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, Wade Legge on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums – making an early appearance in his alliance with Mingus that would last for many many years. Titles include classic versions of "Haitian Fight Song", "Blue Cee", and "Reincarnation Of A Lovebird" – plus "The Clown", which features a long improvised monologue by Jean Shephard!

Redd Holt UnlimitedIsaac, Isaac, Isaac ... LP
Paula, 1974. Very Good+ ... $33.99
An excellent album by Isaac Redd Holt – one half of the incredible Young-Holt rhythm team, bursting out nicely here on his own! This is Redd's second album – first for Paula, as the other one was a jazz effort on Argo back in the 60s – and it's a wild blend of jazz, funk, and a lot of other weird sounds. The introduction's totally cool, and features Redd running through a list of hip little clubs in American cities, then the album launches into the great "Listen to the Drums", which has a tight pounding groove, and moves on to a whole bunch of other jazzy cuts like "Flo", "Slow Funk", and "Let the Spirit In". Redd sings a bit, which isn't too bad (mostly), but it's the grooves that will keep you coming back. Very much in the spirit of Roy Porter's legendary funk albums – but probably a bit tighter! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has some ringwear, heavy wear on the top seam, and a name in marker on back. Labels have some marker.)

Mick RonsonPlay Don't Worry (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Drastic Plastic, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... On June 30, 2017 (delayed)
Catchy glam pop from guitarist Mick Ronson – the blazing player best remembered for his work with Bowie, here blending punchy riffs and heavier sounds with bubbly hooks and playful production touches. Our favorite tunes showcase the heavy guitar fuzz, but the oddball cutesy songs are endearing in their strange way. Ronson kind of throws a bunch of stuff at the wall here, and the stuff that sticks gets you nodding your head and smiling at the more innocuous touches. Titles include "Billy Porter", "This Is For You", a weird, piano peppered cover of the Velvet Underground's "White Light/White Heat", "Empty Bed", "This Is For You", "Woman" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
