✨✧ Miles DavisMiles Davis & The Modern Jazz Giants (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Prestige, 1954/1956. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strange mix of material – but some great work overall! Most of the record features Miles Davis recording with a quintet that includes Thelonious Monk on piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – on longer versions of "The Man I Love" (in 2 takes), "Swing Spring", and "Bemsha Swing". These sides have a great bop/modern approach that's a nice extension of the styles that Jackson and Davis were playing on Blue Note in earlier years. Also added to the set is one number from 1956 – a version of "Round Midnight" recorded in early sessions with John Coltrane on tenor, and the Red Garland Trio on rhythm – different than the rest of the tracks, but still quite nice!

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (2LP 200 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Columbia/Analogue Productions, 1961. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The tenor sax here makes the album a standout – as John Coltrane still works with Miles Davis on 2 tracks for the record, but Blue Note stalwart Hank Mobley joins in on the rest! The approach is similar to that of the classic Coltrane/Davis years – and in a way, the record's kind of a swan song to that period – one of the last studio session that Miles would cut in such an unabashedly sweet and lyrical way. And while Mobley's always better known for his harder-blown notes at Blue Note, he sounds totally great here next to Davis – really keeping up the gentle spirit and spaciousness of the record, and working with a gentleness that surpasses even his work on the legendary Soul Station album. Rhythm is by the trio of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and titles include Miles' classic version of "Someday My Prince Will Come", plus "Old Folks", "Teo", "Drad-Dog", and "Pfrancing".

✨✧ Grant GreenSolid (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1964. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent set by Grant Green – recorded in 1964, but not issued until close to 1980, when Blue Note first pulled it out of the vaults, and dropped it on the world! The session's a great one – with an unusual lineup that features Green's guitar in a sextet, with McCoy Tyner on piano, James Spaulding on alto, Joe Henderson on tenor, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a really wonderful group who help bring something different to the proceedings – helping showcase the great change in Green's second chapter for Blue Note. The album's got a mix of modal grooving and piano-driven hardbop – with a harder groove than some of Green's other non-organ sides for Blue Note. Titles include "Solid", "Minor League", "Ezz Thetic", "Grant's Tune" and "The Kicker". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneThere's A Riot Goin' On (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Epic/ORG, 1971. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from Sly and crew – moving way past the straight funk approach of earlier records, into a complicated crossover soul style that's filled with warmth and righteousness. Despite the political tone implied by the "riot" in the title and the co-option of the American flag on the cover, the album's strongest suit is its warmth and personal soul message – sometimes filled with politics, sure, but always sounding like a sexy love song, no matter how hard it tries to get righteous. Who cares, though – just get with the flow on great cuts like "Family Affair", "Luv N Haight", "Brave & Strong", "You Caught Me Smilin", and "Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa". Also features "There's A Riot Goin' On" – which runs for "0:00" minutes! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ornette ColemanThis Is Our Music (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Atlantic/ORG, Early 60s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark in modern jazz – from the stark stares of the band on the cover, to the starkly haunting music in the grooves! The record makes a bold statement right from the outset – and more than lives up to its promise in the sound within – an amazing approach to modern jazz that's still quite powerful, even all these many years later! The group features Ornette Coleman on alto, Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums – moving at a fast, highly rhythmic pace that still leaves us breathless – filled with angles, but wrapped up in soul. The group make severe statements about the future of modern music in tracks like "Humpty Dumpty", "Beauty Is a Rare Thing", and "Kaleidoscope" – bouncing the efforts of the whole group off the beat, in a way that's both challenging and groove-heavy at the same time, a key summation of the genius of Ornette's early vision!

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin Hopkins Sings The Blues (Crown) ... LP
RPM/Crown, Late 40s/Early 50s. Very Good ... $38.99
Lightnin Hopkins sings the blues – and virtually helps reinvent the genre in the process with these classic Texas recordings for the RPM label! The style here is much rootsier than some of the postwar blues coming out from other scenes – quite spare, and almost more in a delta style of singer and guitar, without much else in the mix. Yet Hopkins' use of an electric instrument here is seminal – as he works the strings with these inflections and inspirations that would have a huge impact on countless other musicians to come – first blues contemporaries, then bigger talents in the world of rock in later decades. Yet there's still nothing better than these initial recordings – as few folks have a way of hitting the right modes in the right way like Lighnin – both vocally, where he's simple but extremely powerful – and instrumentally, where he can always grab us with just a surprising flick or two of his fingers on the strings.

ValentinesSound Of The Valentines (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 29.99
Early work from a young Bon Scott – heard here years before his fame in AC/DC, as one of two singers in the mighty Valentines – a late 60s Aussie group with a wonderfully groovy sound! At some level, these guys share a lot with the British beat group scene of the period – a love of elements from American soul and R&B, which sometimes means they're even covering songs from the US, but in a more rocking way – but The Valentines also have a cool approach that often has them shifting lead vocal chores between Scott and Vince Lovegrove, but with the other harmonizing along – which gives them a fuller feel, and a mode that almost reminds us of the earliest Bee Gees material from Australia. Scott's already got some of the rawness in his voice that you'll know and love – and titles include "Can't Dance With You", "Every Day I Have To Cry", "She Said", "On My Mind", "Gloria", "Love Makes Sweet Music", "Sooky Sooky", "I Can Hear The Raindrops", and "Why Me".

An excellent collection of Billie's 30s work for Columbia Records – featuring 3LPs worth of material, represented with much better sound than the original 78 rpm release of the songs. Billie's in the company of a host of great jazzmen – including Count Basie, Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Shavers, Artie Shaw, Cozy Cole, Roy Eldridge, Red Allen, and countless others. 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "Your Mother's Son In Law", "Riffin The Scotch", "Them There Eyes", "Without Your Love", "Swing Brother Swing", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "You Go To My Head", "Long Gone Blues", "I Can't Get Started", "All Of Me", "God Bless The Child", and "Gloomy Sunday".

Pepe Sanchez Y Su Rock BandRegresion (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
Fantastic funk from the Spanish scene of the 70s – a set that starts out in the best electric fusion mode, but also embraces some older Spanish currents too – with a groove that's almost a 70s funk take on some of the flamenco jazz experiments of the late 60s! Yet we'll also say that there's more reedwork here than guitar – including some sublime tenor and soprano sax from the great Pedro Iturralde, easily one of the best Spanish jazz musicians of his generation – working here with other soloists on flute, trumpet, and trombone – all led by the heavy drums of Pepe Sanchez! Bass and electric keyboards round out the groove – creating this great criss-crossing of rhythms that's mighty nice – on titles that include "Sentimiento", "Renacimiento", "Cantares", "Regresion", "Nostalgia", "Paisajes", and "A Mi Tierra". Also includes two bonus tracks from a later 45 rpm single – "Love Me" and "Encuentros En La 5a Dimension". LP, Vinyl record album

A dub landing of massive proportions – served up here on some classic early 80s work by Scientist, who's really making magic in the studio with the sounds of the Roots Radics Band! The tunes are stark, sharp, and very focused – and at some level, the mixologist is maybe keeping himself a bit more in check – to allow for some rootsy currents to flow through, and give the music a surprisingly soulful vibe from time to time – even when the echo's booted up a bit, and spacey sounds start to filter into the mix. Titles include "Attack", "Beaming", "Invaders", "Landing", "Vulcan", "Black Out", "Time Passage", and "Galaxy". LP, Vinyl record album

The Lions seem to get deeper and deeper with each new release – moving past their start as a funk band with a focus on Kingston sounds – into a group who've got a really fresh feel of their own! Sure, some cuts here are great reggae numbers – the kind of mellow, head-nodding cuts The Lions have always given us – but there's also some more complicated elements going on too, these little touches of darkness at times, especially on the rhythms, which can break from obvious patterns into something nicely unique. Plenty of guests help flesh out the tunes – including Malik The Freq Moore, Black Shakespeare, Alex Desert, and Myron Glasper – and titles include "My Girl", "Going Nowhere", "Rhythm Rock", "Feels Good", "At A Loss", "Smoke & Mirrors", and "When It Rains".

✨✧ VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

Grant GreenMatador (45rpm – 2LP 180gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1965. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $59.99
A fantastic mid 60s album from Grant Green – but one that never got its due originally, because it was unreleased at the time – and didn't come out until a Japanese version in the late 70s! Despite that oddly long gap, Matador is truly one Grant's best ever records – a really inventive session that goes way past his standard soul jazz roots – and which really shows the guitarist stretching out towards future styles of jazz! The session's a spare quartet date – with Green's guitar playing modal grooves over rhythm by by his incredible combo – with Bob Cranshaw on bass, Elvin Jones on drums and the incomparable McCoy Tyner on piano – blocking out bold changes that really drive the record strongly. Cuts are long, and there's a freewheeling quality to the material that's only ever matched by some of the Grant Green/Larry Young sessions from the same time – especially the Street Of Dreams Record. Titles include "Matador", "Bedouin", Green Jeans", and a killer version of "My Favorite Things", done in a very Coltrane-esque style. LP, Vinyl record album

Nirvana's riveting Incesticide – which at the time, looked like a mere placeholder for Geffen to sate the suddenly massive new fanbase of the band, between proper albums – but it turned out to be nearly as essential as anything they'd ever put out! A great batch of songs that are as fresh as ever, thanks to them getting comparatively little air time, as opposed to the Nevermind and In Utero hits. Titles include "Sliver" (our pick for the greatest Nirvana song ever – and their most classic punk rock-styled song), "Stain", "Been A Son", "Son Of A Gun", "Molly's Lips", "Beeswax", "Downer", "Aero Zeppelin", and "Big Long Now".

Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1955. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little record by Miles Davis – oft overlooked next to some of the better-titled Prestige sessions of the 50s, but a great one nonetheless! The session features Miles working with trio backing from Red Garland on piano, Oscar Pettford on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – often in a mellow mode that fits the "musings" in the title, but which also provides a wonderful showcase for Davis to further intensify his vision on a set of longer tracks. Most tunes are familiar, but they're really transformed here – and titles include "I Did", 'Will You Still Be Mine?", "Green Haze", "I See You Face Before Me", "A Night In Tunisia" and "A Gal In Calico".

One of the rarest Kenny Burrell albums – and one of the most unusual, too! Unlike other records, on which Kenny just plays guitar – this set has the jazzman also doing a bit of singing, sweetly crooning alongside his instrument with a surprising amount of charm! Burrell's got the feel of some backroom singer in the bebop years – deep-toned and mellow, but still pretty swinging – and the album's a great illustration of this overlooked side of his talents. The group features Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Bobby Jaspar plays a bit of tenor sax at times – on titles that include "Hootchie Koo", "A Fine Romance", "The Blues Is Awful Mean", "The More I See You", "I'll Buy You A Star", "Afternoon In Paris", and "Weaver Of Dreams".

The instrument here is the acoustic version of steel guitar, and is often played alongside other more traditional Greek instrumentation in small groups that also feature acoustic guitar – usually with a singer in the lead, whose use of language really accents the different setting of the instrument! The package is wonderful – and comes with a 28 page booklet of notes that looks into this very unusual cultural moment – and the music is all remastered from 78s, with beautiful clarity throughout.

Atlantic, Early 60s. New Copy 6 LPs ... $138.99 149.99
The early genius of John Coltrane – summed up perfectly on his albums for Atlantic Records! Coltrane was really going through some amazing changes here – picking up on some of his more modal and freewheeling solo expressions, while also able to hang back in some of the more soulful moments of his previous work on Prestige – criss-crossing jazz territory that few would touch this well again, even though Coltrane continues to influence so many with these records! The package presents five full albums in mono – all of them classics – Giant Steps (with the title track, "Naima", "Mr PC", and "Cousin Mary"), Bags & Trane (a duet session with vibist Milt Jackson), Ole Coltrane (with the incredible side-long title cut), Coltrane Plays The Blues, and The Avant Garde (an amazing collaboration with trumpeter Don Cherry). Package also includes The Coltrane Legacy – a special collection of rare mono recordings, with the titles "Untitled Original", "26-2", "Original Untitled Ballad", "Centerpiece", "Stairway To The Stars", and "Blues Legacy".

The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Fantastic recordings of the legendary Furry Lewis – a musician who may be pictured in a bathrobe on the front cover, but who comes across with all the sharp edges and bold tones of his classic work! The material is part of that legendary George Mitchell series of blues recordings, and may well be one of the best – as Mitchell captures both Lewis' guitar and vocals with incredible clarity – especially the instrument, which yields the kind of complex passages and subtle tones that would have been a lot harder to hear in a 78rpm environment. Furry's vocals are wonderful, too – with a stretching depth that evokes gospel inspiration, but served up with very secular subject matter – on titles that include "Why Don't You Come Home Blues", "Good Morning Judge", "Blues Around My Bed", "Furry Lewis' Careless Love", and "Old Hobo".

Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty, Mid 40s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Great early work from Kay Starr – a singer who cut plenty of pop in the 50s, but who's working in much jazzier territory on this material from the mid 40s! The sides were all originally issued as 78rpm singles, and later put together as the full LP pictured on the cover – and Starr's trademark tone is slightly subdued here, and the overall approach is a bit bluesier overall. Kay's nicely expressive, but never goes too far over the top – and the backings are usually small combo and swinging, with some slight trad elements in the instrumentation. Titles include "I'm Confessin", "Sweet Lorraine", "All Of Me", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "I Cried For You", and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. Sealed ... $49.99
The great second volume of this genre-defining series – a set that looks at a really unique strain of R&B in the 50s – a special sort of groove that mixed together jazz, Latin, and other soulful styles! There's plenty of percussion on most of these numbers, but there's also lots of bluesy elements too – electric guitar, tenor, and firey piano – mixed with soulful vocals that leap wonderfully out of the vivid arrangements – at a level that really makes these tunes pretty darn unique! Some cuts have a vibe that's like jump blues, taking a drink of 50s Latin – while others almost have a Spanish Harlem sort of hybrid, but years before the later Latin Soul scene – a really vibrant mix of modes that keeps things exciting throughout. Titles include "All I Have Is You" by Johnny Oliver, "I Love Your Many Ways" by Lincoln Chase, "Calypso Blues" by Zilla Mayes, "Jimmy's Jive" by Jimmy Nolen, "All Night Long" by Four Blazes, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Satisfied" by Billy Emerson, "Chano" by Ron Rico with Sax Kari, "Later Gator" by Freddie Mitchell, "Denga Denga" by Ashton Savoy, "Gee I Love You" by John McKinnye & The Premiers, and "Summertime" by Red Saunders. Totally amazing package, too – in an "album", like a set of vintage 78s – with 6 pieces of 10" vinyl that play at 45rpm for excellent sound, and a very cool booklet of notes, too. Also includes four tracks not on the other 2LP or CD sets! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing".

✨✧ Blind Uncle Gaspard & Delma LachneyOn The Waters Edge ... LP
Mississippi, Late 20s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bluesy material, but all sung in French – and recorded in Louisiana during the 78rpm era by Blind Uncle Gaspard and Delma Lachney! The music here is all from vintage 78s, and is a definite precursor to later cajun sounds – but done at a level that's more acoustic blues styled overall – with guitar as the lead instrument alongside the vocal, and some occasional other work on violin. Titles include "La Danseuse", "Je Me Trouve Une Jolie Fille", "Cher Ami Ma Vie Est Runi", and "Avoyeles" by Delma Lachney – and "Sur La Borde De L'Eau", "Natchstoches", "Assi Dans La Fenetre De Ma Chambre", and "Mercredi Soir Passe" by Blind Uncle Gaspard.

✨✧ JJ JohnsonLooking Back ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 12" album that combines sides that JJ Johnson previously issued on Prestige – some as 78rpm singles, some as 10" LP material – all of it very top-level bop modern work from Johnson's first stretch on the scene! There's a sharpness here that really sets JJ apart from other trombonists – that mix of fresh ideas that makes all of his recordings from the time worth checking out – both the late 40s cuts that make up a third of the record, and the additional 8 tracks from 1954 that make up the rest. Other players include Kenny Dorham on trumpet, John Lewis on piano, and Sonny Rollins on tenor for the 1949 sessions – and Kai Winding on trombone and Dick Katz on piano for the 1954 sessions. Titles include "Elysses", "Hilo", "Fox Hunt", "Opus V", "Don't Argue", "Riviera", "Dinner For One", "Wing Bag", and "Hip Bones". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing with RVG stamps. Cover has completely split seams and comes in two pieces, with some discoloration from age and notes on the back panel.)

✨✧ Kumasi TrioFanti Guitar In West Africa 1928 – Vol 1 ... LP
Asherah, 1928. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two guitars and percussion – working together here in an unusual representation of West African music – in early recordings that came to lay the basis for the highlife sound to come! The set brings together rare early 78rpm singles from this trio from the Ghanian city of Kumasi – an early musical export to the wider world, thanks to the strengths of the Regal Zonophone label – who did a great job of capturing the instrumental and vocal interplay of the group! Titles include "Adjuah Adaziwah (parts 1 & 2)", "Opuhim Wuara", "Pen Pen Sin", "Yaw Donkor", "Womma Onye Bi", "Amponsah (parts 1 & 2)", and "Banasko Na Kewsi Ayaw". LP, Vinyl record album
