Joe HendersonPage One (45 rpm 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Analogue Productions, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $38.99
One of Joe Henderson's first true moments of greatness – a landmark session recorded with a quintet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums! LaRoca's very free on the drum kit, and gives the set a rhythmic looseness that's a bit of a hint at some of Joe's 70's recordings – and that style's even further supported by Tyner's long flowing lines on piano, and Dorham's sparkling work on the trumpet! Includes the classic reading of Kenny's "Blue Bossa", plus the titles "Recorda-Me", "Jinrikishna", "La Mesha", and "Homestretch". LP, Vinyl record album
(2LP pressing – plays at 45! With insert and numbered too!)

VariousExcavated Shellac – Reeds – Reed Performances From Tanzania, Kurdistan, Turkey, India, China & More From The 78 RPM Era ... LP
Dust To Digital, New Copy ... $19.99
A great range of amazing reed sounds from the glory days of the global 78rpm scene – not just the saxes and woodwinds you'dknow from the west, but a whole host of even more exotic instruments from points east! The package is a companion to the excellent string-based set from the Excavated Shellac blog – and like that one, it brings together some mindblowing sounds we never would have heard otherwise – all taken from vintage 78s from nations that include India, China, Tanzania, Turky, Iran, Egypt, and Kurdistan – and given vastly improved sound in the mastering process, but without dampening the sharp edge of the music at all! Many of these numbers are instrumental, and most move at a pretty nice clip, too – really setting fire with the angular, almost modern reed elements – and blending them in with other unusual instruments too.

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Quintet In Chicago (Audiocheck 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Mercury (Japan), 1959/1977. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and since Coltrane's sitting in with Cannon – the album's essentially a Kind Of Blue-era Miles album, recorded without Miles on trumpet, and grooving in a slightly more soul-based Adderley mode. Given the presence of Coltrane, there's a bit less of the gutbuckety soul jazz that Cannon was cutting in his own Quintet – but that's more than ok with us, as the Coltrane solos more than make up for that difference! The record has only 4 tracks, but it spins at 45 rpm, and was pressed on high-quality Japanese vinyl. It's part of the "Audiocheck" series. LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Crystal Clear, 1978. Very Good+ ... $18.99
Obscure direct to disc recording that plays at 45 RPM, which means that it's a bit shorter than usual – but the record more than makes up for that defect with its excellent sound and (more importantly) excellent batch of grooves. Cal's vibes are backed by Clare Fischer on electric piano, Willie Bobo on timbales, and a bunch of other good west coast players that include Victor Pantoja, Pancho Sanches, and Gary Foster. Titles include "Funquiado", "Tres Palabras", and "Huracan" – and the album is probably Tjader's best Latin LP of the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

Jack WhiteLazaretto (180 gram vinyl – with download and 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks) ... LP
Third Man, 2014. New Copy ... $24.99
The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to Nashville record biz provocateur/label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto. Unpredictable twists and turns abound, but it's all held together by an undercurrent of pummeling, unpretentious rock and roll, with a rootsy swagger. Ever upping the ante on hella cool vinyl releases, Lazarretto is a 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with a 33 1/3 main track list, and 2 hidden tracks beneath the center labels, one that plays at 45 and one that plays at 78. Oh, and also a hologram visual effect. We're thinking that maybe his next record will summon a genie that grants you 3 wishes. Titles include "Three Women", "Lazaretto", "Temoprary Ground", "Would You Fight For My Love?", "High Ball Stepper", "Just One Drink", "Alone In My Home", That Black Bat Licorice", "Entitlement", "I Think I Found The Culprit" and "Want And Able".

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed 2LP ... $16.99
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.

✨✧ LionsSoul Riot ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Side one is from 1954, and features Monk in the company of Frank Foster tenor and Ray Copeland trumpet – playing a mix of jagged ensemble tracks that hint at the greatness to emerge on the Riverside recordings. Titles on that one include "We See", "Locomotive", and "Hackensack". The flipside features a 1953 session, with Sonny Rollins and Julius Watkins on horn parts – and the tracks "Let's Call One", plus two takes of "Think Of One". LP, Vinyl record album

Legacy, 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grittiest Christmas albums we've ever heard – and one of the grooviest too! The set's comprised of rare material from the 78 rpm generation – tracks from the 20s, 30s, and 40s – a very cool mix of blues, hillbilly, and jazz tracks – most of which we've not seen compiled on any other collection! The package is a great testament to the riches of the Okeh, Columbia, and Vocalion labels back in the heyday of the 78 rpm format – and the music here is way different than anything you'll hear on your usual Holiday compilations! Titles include "Don't Think I'm Santa Claus" by Lil McClintock, "Christmas Morning Blues" by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Santa Bring My Man Back" by Ozie Ware with Hot Five, "Will Hell Be Your Santa Claus" by Reverent J M Gates, "Christmas & The New Year Blues" by Tampa Red, "Did You Spend Christmas Day In Jail" by Reverent JM Gates, and "Santa Claus" by Bo Carter.

Joe Albany & OthersLow Down (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinewax, 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $21.99 24.98
A beautiful document of the late, great pianist Joe Albany – music put together in support of the film Low Down, and packaged here in a really lovely format! The movie is a poetic look at Albany – an important west coast player from the bop years onward, but one who never reached his full potential, due to a lifetime of heroin use. Yet during his career, he certainly touched plenty of hearts and ears – with recordings that begin in the 78rpm generation, and stretch right up to his final years – almost every one a masterpiece of melancholic piano, with these blue undercurrents that often make Joe's music very distinct. Both the film and this set get at that quality, and intersperse original performances by Albany with a few tracks by contemporaries – like Coleman Hawkins and Max Roach – as well as a few musical bits by Ohad Taylor, who scored parts of the film in a very sympathetic manner. Titles include "Angel Eyes", "Lush Life", "Everybody Knew But Me", "Lotus Blossom", "Barbados", and "AB Blues" by Joe Albany – plus "AJ Blues" and "Daahoud" by Ohad Taylor, "Deeds Not Words" by Max Roach, and "Think Deep" by Coleman Hawkins.

A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". LP, Vinyl record album

Arguably one of the most lyrical and expressive trumpeters in the history of Jazz, Kenny Dorham was unquestionably the one the foremost players of his generation. An absolute must own for all fans of the mid 50's to late 60's hard bop as defined by this side and many other contemporaneous selections from the Blue Note catalog, all the hallmarks of the classic "Blue Note" are embodied in this LP: hard, swinging blues, atmospheric modal pieces, and mellow, introspective playing.

Although it was Charlie Parker who first made famous the modernist "jazz with strings" approach, Dizzy does wonderfully here in the format – working in similar fashion with edgey backing from the "Operatic String Orchestra" in sessions recorded in Paris in the early 50s! The material was originally only issued as a number of separate 78rpm singles, but is packaged here as a 10" LP for the US market.

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".

An unlikely pair, but a great one here – and the record's one of those few magical moments where bringing together unusual partners actually works! Mulligan's cool hardly seems a match for Monk's angular modernism, but together the players seem to strike a middle ground that resonates with the strength of both – a sound that cuts a bit more edge on Gerry's normally smooth baritone, and which still lets Monk's keys flow into wonderful twists and turns. Rhythm is by the great bassist Wilbur Ware and drummer Shadow Wilson – and titles include the Monk classics "Straight No Chaser", "Rhythm A Ning", "Round Midnight", and "I Mean You" – plus a version of Mulligan's "Decidedly".

A treasure trove of lost work from Wes Montgomery – very early recordings done in his native Indianapolis, and packaged with a great book of vintage photos as well! The set offers a key look at Wes' music before he moved onto greater fame out west – a great slice of sounds that are closest to his small combo work for Riverside, but which have an even homier feel overall thanks to the presence of some live performances mixed in with the studio sessions! Recording quality is great throughout, and tapes have been very lovingly restored – making the package way more than just a relic, and more a whole new listening experience from the early years of Wes – a magnificent way to hear that legendary tone, already full-formed at the start. Players include some real stalwarts from the Indy scene – including Mel Rhyne on both piano and organ, Earl Van Riper on piano, and on one track, brothers Buddy Montgomery on bass and Monk on piano. Titles include "Diablo's Dance", "Take The A Train", "Nica's Dream", "Round Midnight", "After Hours Blues", and "Misty". 22 page book comes with loads of photos and great essays!

Blue Note/Music Matters, 1964. Near Mint- 2LP (reissue)... $54.99
A brilliant album that proves that even at the height of his success, Lee Morgan was one of the freest thinkers on Blue Note – always coming up with fresh ideas that continued to grow his talents! The first cut on the album is keep roof of that fact – the title track "Search For The New Land" – a beautiful 16 minute exploration of modal jazz themes, with an unusual stop/start device as a means of ushering solos by different bandmates – including Wayne Shorter on tenor, Grant Green on guitar, and Herbie Hancock on piano! The approach is unlike anything that Morgan ever did before – and unlike most of other Blue Note as well – and it also benefits from great rhythmic help from Reggie Workman on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. Other tunes are a bit more conventional, but still pretty special – like some of Morgan's inventive work on the Rajah albums – with titles that include "The Joker", "Melancholee", "Mr. Kenyatta" and "Morgan The Pirate".

Maybe the coolest record ever from this always-great group – one of the best contemporary acts to really get the sound of vintage soundtracks right – working here in a special package that features unusual vinyl, a great cover, and some amazing music within! The tunes are all from older Italian films of the 70s, all composed by the great Bruno Nicolai – but served up here by Orgasmo Sonore in this sublime blend of keyboards, strings, and other great elements – all with the feel of some vintage Ennio Morricone production! The LP plays at 45rpm, for extra-great fidelity – but it still features a total of six tracks that include "Panic In The Elevator", "Magico Incontro", "Sabba", "La Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte", "Gatti Rossi In Un Labirinto Di Vetro", and "La Coda Dello Scorpione".

A classic set from Horace Silver – one in which his quintet is expanded by some great guest work from trombonist JJ Johnson! Johnson's at the height of his 60s powers here – blowing with that lean, soulful style that always made any record sparkle – and although he's only on half of the tracks on the date, his presence is more than worth the heavy billing he gets on the cover! Other great members of the group include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, and rhythm from Bob Cranshaw on bass and Roger Humphries on drums – all coming together with that wonderful 60s Silver groove. The set's filled with sweetly grooving originals by Horace – a blueprint for the exotic style of soul jazz he helped to forge at the time – great writing all around, on titles that include "Mo Joe", "Nutville", "Bonita", "The African Queen", and "Pretty Eyes".
