Jack DeJohnette's Special EditionTin Can Alley ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1981. Used ... $11.99
The great Chico Freeman really shines here with drummer Jack DeJohnette – lending his tenor, flute, and bass clarinet to the album – and helping make it a really reed-heavy affair! John Purcell's also in the frontline with Chico – playing alto, baritone, and flute – and in addition to Peter Warren's bass and cello, the album Jack DeJohnette also plays drums, congas, piano, and organ too! The range of instrumentation almost echoes some Chicago AACM roots at times – but with that tighter focus that musicians like Jack were bringing to their work at ECM – and titles include "Riff Raff", "The Gri Gri Man", "I Know", and "Pastel Rhapsody".

Lafayette Afro Rock BandMalik ... LP
Makossa/As The Record Turns, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A fantastic bit of Afro funky soul – one of a few albums recorded by the legendary Lafayette Afro Rock Band! The set has an incredible blend of American funk, African rhythms, and European production – recorded in the heady cross-cultural scene of early 70s Paris – with a sound that's often imitated, but never duplicated! Funky guitar snakes through electric piano riffing, rolling basslines, and some really heavy percussion – occasionally supporting a bit of chorus vocals, but mostly going for a hard-grooving instrumental sound overall! Includes the classic break track "Darkest Light", sampled by PE and others – plus "Djungi", "Raff", "Conga", "Avi-Vo", and "Malik". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanDestination Out (Connoisseur edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

Bill SaxtonBeneath The Surface ... LP
Nilva, 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Bill Saxton's a great player we'd love to hear more from – but we really only know his work from this rare Nilva session in the 80s! Saxton blows beautifully throughout – often with a sharp edge, but on well-controlled solos that never go too far out – often soaring forth with the bold intensity of a player like Clifford Jordan, especially in the way that Bill improvises quickly on a longer tune. Saxton blows both tenor and "curved soprano" on the date – and half the album features a trio with Alvin Queen on drums and Ray Drummond on bass – and the rest features a quartet that also includes the mighty John Hicks on piano. Titles include "Teminha Pra Bebe", "Third World Express", "Beneath The Surface", "Simone", and "Riff Raff". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cat Mother & The All Night NewsboysAlbion Doo Wah ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really compelling second set from Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys – and quite different than the first! On their Polydor debut, the group had Jimi Hendrix at the production helm – but this time they're taking things on their own, with a feel that's nicely loose and freewheeling – and which really matches the woodsy image of the cover! The core mix of guitar and organ is still as tight as before – but it also gets some nice rootsy touches from violin, mandolin, and acoustic guitar – used in ways that echo folk and maybe preface a bit of redneck rock – yet which also have a bit more of a North Cali sort of sensibility in the long run. Titles include "Riff Raff", "Boonville Massacre", "Turkish Taffy", "Last Go Round", "Good Times", "Albion Doo Wah", and "Strike A Match & Light Another". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousLibrary Archive – Funk, Jazz, Beats & Soundtracks From The Vaults Of Cavendish Music ... LP
BBE (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant funky instrumentals from the UK Cavendish Sound Library – a company who could sometimes recorded more staid music, although that certainly wasn't the case with the gems on this collection! The music is by a handful of British studio talents of the time – most of whom come from the jazz scene in earlier years – and provide a great update of their earlier talents with some very sweet electric touches! Many of these tunes have some really great keyboards – Fender Rhodes or even moogier elements – and many also have wicked basslines next to the funky drums, which really make things kick throughout. These tunes are vastly undiscovered – at least in comparison to better-known sound library funk from companies like KPM or DeWolfe – but we'd put these grooves right up there with the best of that bunch too. Titles include "Night Shade", "The Rally", "Southbound", "Snowmobile", "Night Driver", "The Trackers", and "Lady Killers" by Dennis Farnon; "Milky Way" and "Star Voyage" by John Scott; "Two Bars" and "The Scape Goat" by Pete Moore; "The Big Score" by John Cacavas, "One Way Trip" by Sam Fonteyn, "Smile Of A Stranger" by Dominic Sands, "Riff Raff" by Geoff Bastow, "Come Cuban" by Edward White, and "Kaleidoscope" by Tony Kinsey.

✨✧ PrinceGraffiti Bridge ... LP
Paisley Park, 1990. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Well, it wasn't Purple Rain – nor Parade – but this 3rd Prince soundtrack still had some nice moments, thanks to an ever-expanding Paisley Park family that included George Clinton, Morris Day, and Mavis Staples! The older funk acts don't come off as nicely as Prince and The Time do – but with 2LPs worth of material, there's enough good numbers to pick out of the set. Titles include "New Power Generation", "Can't Stop This Feeling I Got", "Love Machine", "Tick Tick Bang", "Shake", "Thieves In The Temple", "Still Would Stand All Time", "Graffiti Bridge", and "The Latest Fashion".

✨✧ Blue MitchellGraffiti Blues ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Blue Mitchell's hippest funky sets of the 70s – an unusual little record that mixes a bit of funky harmonica with his own soulful trumpet! The approach definitely echoes a bit of the "blues" in the title – but the groove is much more straightforward and funky – that hard-edged approach that shows up on the best electric Mainstream sessions of the time, with a bad-stepping bottom that moves along nicely throughout! Harmonica's handled by Don Bailey, and other players include Joe Sample on keyboards, Herman Riley on tenor, Freddie Robinson on guitar, and Ray Pounds on drums. Cuts are all nice and long, quite open overall, and almost more relaxed than some of Blue's other Mainstream sessions – and titles include "Graffiti Blues", "Yeah Ya Right", "Express", "Asso Kam", and "Dorado".

✨✧ Bennie MaupinSlow Traffic To The Right/Moonscapes ... CD
Mercury/Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of funky jazz sets from Bennie Maupin – '77's Slow Traffic To The Right and '78's Moonscapes – together in a single set! Slow Traffic To The Right is Maupin's first LP for Mercury, and a great bit of spiritual funky jazz that recalls a lot of the sound of his work with The Headhunters. The first track, "It Remains to Be Seen", is an excellent groover, with some very dark keyboard work by Patrice Rushen, and the rest of the tracks are pretty great too. Pat Gleeson produced and plays synth on the LP, and the cuts include "Quasar", "You Know the Deal", "Water Torture", and "Lament". Next up is Moonscapes – a really great solo set from the great Bennie Maupin – part of an excellent run of records as a leader, cut during the stretch when he was riding to great fame with The Headhunters! The vibe here is deeper and more spiritual than his work with that group – still somewhat influenced by the Herbie Hancock electric years – with loads of wonderful keyboards from Bobby Lyle – but also stretched out with these spacious solos from Bennie on soprano, tenor, bass clarinet, and flute! Maupin also throws in a bit of electronics, too – as does the mighty Pat Gleeson, who produced the record, and also adds in some great keyboard work to give the whole thing a spacey edge that really lives up to the title and cover. Titles include "Nightwatch", "Sansho Shima", "Anua", and "Just Give It Some Time". CD
