Jackie McLeanDestination Out ... LP
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $33.99
A modernist classic from 60s Blue Note! The album's one of Jackie McLean's greatest from the time – and one of his seminal "new thing" sessions cut with young modernists Grachan Moncur and Bobby Hutcherson. 3 of the 4 long tracks on the record were written by Moncur, and have a similar approach to his own recordings for Blue Note – moody and introspective, in a style that's as concerned with sound and space as it is jazz and rhythm – and Hutcherson's vibes are beyond compare here, with have a sinister metallic quality that he only used briefly in his early career! The whole record's a gem, and one not to pass up! Titles include "Kahlil The Prophet", "Riff Raff", and "Love & Hate". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a cut corner, with a light stain and some waviness at the bottom.)

Brian McMahonJaguar Ride – Memories Of An Electric Eel ... Book
HoZac, 2017. New Copy ... $32.99 34.99
A wild ride through trailblazing path of protopunk legends The Electric Eels and the early 70s Cleveland underground rock scene – a turbulent scene in a then incredibly gritty, struggling midwestern American city – with bands and sounds that predate and helped steamroll the path that led to the very existence of American punk rock in NYC years later. Really!! The book, rather than any kind of dry historical document detailing a pivotal band's place in a nascent scene, is the wholly unique personal narrative of Eels guitarist Brian McMahon and those close to him. It's a pretty amazing story, laid out in a really original way! One of most fascinating underground rock bios/autobios we've picked up in years! Paperback, 300 pages. Book
(1st edition. Limited to just 500 copies!)

Murray McNabbWay In Is The Way Out – Music Of Murray McNabb (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sarang Bang (New Zealand), Late 70s/1980s/2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
A much-needed look at the work of New Zealand keyboardist/composer Murray McNabb – an artist who's hardly known within his own nation, much less the rest of the world – but one who comes across here with a wonderful array of sounds! The record mixes together vintage recordings from the 70s and 80s with a few more contemporary tracks – and throughout it all, Murray's a hell of a talent with a really revelatory sound – able to create these colors and tones with a very spiritual vibe – often playing electric piano, but in a setting that also has plenty of strong acoustic elements too – including great reeds from Aussie jazz legend Brian Smith, whose sharp edges really bring a lot of bite to the record! A few numbers are warm, and almost funky – and throughout the whole set, McNabb demonstrates this great ear for lyrical lines that have a great deal of power, and which never fail to captivate our ears. Other musicians include Gianmarco Liguori or Tuhi Timoti on guitar, Kim Paterson on trumpet, and Peter Wood on vibes – and a number of tracks are taken from tapes, without set dates of recording. Titles include "Paradox", "The Private Life Of Birds", "Parisienne", "Song For The Dreamweaver", "Mr Gone", "Karmapa Chenno", "Coquero", "Magenta", "King Kong", "Fourth World", "Meditation In D", and "Radio Priestess". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy pressing, too!)

Ronnie McNeirLove's Comin' Down (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Expansion (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the greatest lost treasures on Motown – the rare third album from Ronnie McNeir, an artist who did plenty for the label back in the 70s, but only managed to ever get this one record released! The set's a gem – arguably his best record ever – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of his RCA and Prodigal sets. And like those records, this one's a sweet soul spectacular – written, arranged, produced, and performed by Ronnie – with the tight, warm, all-together quality that makes him an equal to Leon Ware back in the day – and which makes this record almost a great counterpart to Ware's Musical Massage set for Motown – another one-off album that's become the stuff of legend! The songs are amazing – totally fresh and deeply personal, but never in a cloying or commercial way – perfectly balanced on top of some gently grooving rhythms, spare keyboards, and soulful undercurrents that are a perfect example of the maturity that Detroit soul was hitting in the 70s. A young Ray Parker Jr plays lead guitar, but most other instruments are by Ronnie – and titles include "My Love Is Coming Down", "Funky Situation", "Selling My Heart To The Junkman", "Say You Will", "Goodbye After Sunday", and "It Won't Be Long". And while the core record alone would be enough to celebrate, Expansion's also done and dug out another 7 bonus tracks from the Motown vault of the 70s – material that Ronnie recorded for other albums that never materialized, every bit as great as the main stuff here! The discovery of this material is incredible – and makes for an overstuffed CD that's sure to get McNeir's name back out there again. Bonus tracks include "Start Over As Your Man", "Betcha I'll Prove", "Dream Come True", "For Those Who Don't Believe", "Just You Babe", and "I Can't See Myself Without You". CD

Ronnie McNeirRonnie McNeir Experience EP ... LP
Capitol, 1984. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A rare gem from Detroit soul legend Ronnie McNeir – featuring 4 tracks done for Capitol in the early 80s! Ronnie certainly bumped around over the years – from RCA, to Motown, Prodigal, and a few other labels – and it's a little known fact that he recorded for Capitol briefly during this time. Ronnie's soaring style of soul is perfect for the Capitol sound of the time – and the label's got him stepping forth in an 80s groove mode that ranks with some of the best work on the label at the time, including sides by Dayton, High Fashion, and BB&Q Band. But in a way, since Ronnie's style is always more personal and intimate, his work is even greater than those artists – as he manages to serve up more excitement in this short ep than we might have hoped for in a full album by anyone else at the time! Titles include "Come Be With Me", "Light My Fire", "Is This What Happens To A Love", and "Keep Giving Me Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing. Cover has light wear and a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Carmen McRaeBook Of Ballads (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Kapp (Japan), 1958. Used ... $18.99
Carmen McRae's book of ballads is a great set of standards – performed by a core trio that features Don Abney on piano, over larger backings by Frank Hunter! The set's a treasure from Carmen's early years – and is filled with dusky renditions of tunes that are familiar, but which have a very different feeling here – thanks to McRae's sense of care and space with the material – one that almost brings a personal, reflective quality to the whole thing. Titles include "He Was Too Good To Me", "By Myself", "My Romance", "When I Fall In Love", and "Please Be Kind". CD
(Out of print. Includes obi.)

Carmen McRaeCan't Hide Love ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Sweet soul from Carmen McRae – a great 70s album for Blue Note, and one that has the classic singer moving into some very groovy material! The feel here is much more soul than jazz – at least the jazz of the torchy style from Carmen's roots – but as you'd guess from McRae, the vocals still bring plenty of great inflections to play – personalizing even familiar tunes, and really helping to push the level of an already-great record! Arrangements are by Gerald Wilson, Dave Grusin, Johnny Mandel, and Thad Jones – and the set includes Carmen's hip cover of "Can't Hide Love" – plus "I Wish You Well", "Only Women Bleed", "Lost Up In Loving You", "Would You Believe", "A Child Is Born", and "All By Myself".

Luiz MelodiaMaravilhas Contemporaneas ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Luiz Melodia – a set that has a warmly jazzy vibe in the instrumentation, which seems to even further open up the soulful vocals of the singer! The set's got a nice balance between tightness in the instrumentation and looseness in the presentation – a bit like the territory the hippest Brazilian fusion was hitting in the 70s, but with some of the soulful currents that were coming into American jazz funk too – at a level that the singer sound completely wonderful, and at a level of the biggest giants of MPB at the time. The musicians are top-shelf throughout – professional, but also very personal, and never just falling into the role of slick studio players. Titles include "Maravilhas Contemporaneas", "Juventude Transvida", "Paquistao", "Baby Rose", "Quando O Carnaval Chegou", "Mary", and "Congenito". CD

Antonio (Chocolate) Diaz MenaEso es Latin Jazz . . . Man! ... LP
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A crackling little set from Latin percussionist Antonio "Chocolate" Mena – not to be confused with the Latin trumpeter who also went by the name of Chocolate! The album's got some wonderfully jazzy numbers – put together with arrangements from Duke Pearson and Lalo Schifrin, and a group that includes Pearson, Richard Williams, Walter Perkins, Seldon Powell, and Jerome Richardson – all of whom make for a session that's equally jazz-based as much as it is Latin-styled – almost in the manner of some of the best Latinesque work on Prestige from the same period. Tracks are short, but very powerful, and titles include "El Pega Joso", "Green Dolphin Street", "Tin Tin Deo", "Kush", "Con Alma", and "Mambo Jazz Opus 7". LP, Vinyl record album
