New Quartette Tres BienOur Thing ... LP LP format
Decca, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Righteous grooviness by this great combo! The record was probably the group's 10th – recorded during a very successful run for Decca, when they were crafting finely groovy albums of soul jazz, in a mode that was similar to the early work by the Young-Holt Trio, but which also had the distinction of added percussion. The album's got some nice covers done in the band's style – like "Sunny", "Sunrise Sunset", "Invitation", and "Alfie" – plus the original tunes "Wish You Were Here" and "I Am That I Am". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small split on the bottom seam and a thin wrinkle on the back.)

New Quartette Tres BienSpring Into Spring ... LP LP format
Decca, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An obscure one from the Quartette Tres Bien – one of their first new albums for the Decca label, and a lyrically beautiful set of piano and percussion tracks with a heck of a lot of soul! The approach is similar to that used on many of the group's other ones from the time – piano trio soul jazz, augmented with additional percussion on bongos and congas. There's a good ear for the tunes on the set – and apart from the album's two great original numbers ("Accidentaly On Percy" and "We Remember Jamie"), the rest of the set's got some well-chosen numbers that let the band open up in complicated rhythms. Titles include "Lover Man", "The Night Is Young & You're So Beautiful", "Joey Joey Joey", and "It Might As Well Be Spring". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a center split on the top seam.)

New Quartette Tres BienWhere It's At! ... LP LP format
Decca, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
More groovy soul jazz piano, plus percussion, by the group who virtually invented the genre. As with their other albums on Decca, this one contains a few groovy covers of pop material – like "Amor", "Feelin' Good", and "Moon River" – plus some nice originals which use percussion and piano to very interesting effect. This album's originals include "Harambee" and "Lucky 28", both of which were written by Percy James, who plays congas and bongos on the album. LP, Vinyl record album

New Afro Blues Quintet Plus OneNew Directions ... LP LP format
Mira, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work by one of the grooviest groups on the LA 60s scene! The Afro Blues Quintet have a blend of soul jazz and Latin styles that's similar to the best 60s work by Cal Tjader, or to records by small combos like the Quartette Tres Bien or The Latin Jazz Quintet. Lots of grooves have a nice modal swing to them – nice and jazzy, with slight touches of soulful instrumentation, all fused into a tight Latin-styled groove. Loads of great original tunes – including "Mystic Mambo", "Freaks", "Incantations", "Victims Of Chance", "Let My People Go", and "Afro Rock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some moderate wear.)
