Milt JacksonOlinga ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
Milt Jackson's third album for CTI – part of a wonderful run that really helped him redefine his sound in the 70s! The album's got the electric approach you'd expect from the label – a great change from the sound of Jackson in the Modern Jazz Quartet, and a surprisingly great setting for his wonderful work on vibes! Milt's laidback style is perfect for the CTI mode – open, flowing, and filled with great tones – matched up here with sax work by Jimmy Heath, bass by Ron Carter, piano from Cedar Walton, and drums by Mickey Roker – a perfect setting to let loose in a way he rarely did on his earlier albums. The whole set's great – and titles include "Lost April", "Rerev", "The Metal Melter", "The Steel Bender", and "I'm Not So Sure". CD

Antonio Carlos JobimTerra Brasilis ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Pretty great sounds from the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim – an album cut a bit later than his bossa years, but with a darkly sophisticated sound that's pretty darn compelling! The album features larger orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, and in a way, it's similar to the Jobim album on Decca from 1973 (aka Maita Pere) – in that it's got all the simple elements of Jobim's earlier bossa scoring, flushed out into moodier orchestral forms that we'd rank right up there with the modernist work of Gil Evans or Duke Ellington. A few cuts have a breezier sparer sound, and you'll hear English versions of some older bossa tunes. Titles include "Dreamer", "Canta Mais", "Olha Maria", "Wave", "Two Kites", "This Happy Madness", "Song Of The Sabia", "Estrada Do Sol", "Voce Vai Ver", "Off Key", and "Triste". CD

King Jammy & OthersKing Jammy's – Selector's Choice Vol 3 ... CD
Jammy's/VP, Early/Mid 80s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
We can't think of a better word to describe this selection than choice, as it bumps like jeep with a broken suspension on dirt road in the Jamaican countryside! This is part three of a four part series collecting the 80s output Lloyd King Jammy James, the man who elevated the Casio from musical toy to a sound bwoy killing beat machine! An essential musical portrait of the man who virtually single handedly transformed the Dancehall era and influenced the sound of an entire generation of Jamaican music, with the tracks arranged by rhythm. This volume features 40 cuts on 2 discs, including "Jump Up", "No Where Better Than Yard" and "Kill Dem Wid It" by Admiral Bailey, "Bam Bam" by Tiger, "Cassanova" by Frankie Paul, "Respect Due" by Little Twitch, "Wake Up" by Sister Charmaine, "Great Ambition" by Lt Stitchie, "I'm A Don" by Pinchers, "Must Haffi Get It" by Horace Andy, "Be Mine Tonight" by Admiral Tibet, "Gimme No Bun" by Little John, 'Get Up Stand Up And Rock" by Shabba Ranks, "DJ A Look Fi Mi" by Lecturer, "Duck Dance" by Red Dragon, "Bounce" by Flourgon, "Bad Bad Chake" by Chaka Demus, "Dibbi Dibbi Girl" by Daddy Lizard, "More Reality" by Ninja Man, "Duck Riddim" by Steely & Clevie and "Conquer Me" by Don Angelo.

Kool & The GangKool Jazz ... LP
De-Lite, Early 70s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A great album – even if most of the cuts are on other records! The set's designed to focus on the jazzier side of Kool & The Gang – and it sifts through the first few albums to come up with some of the more sophisticated (yet still totally funky!) numbers by the band, giving a good picture of the many sides of their talents, and also adding in a few other tracks that we haven't found on other records. The groove ranges from slow-dope and mellow, to choppy and funky, with plenty of hot breaks and classic hip hop samples. Titles include the monster jammer "Dujii", plus "Lucky For Me", "Sea Of Tranquility", "North East South West", "I Remember John W Coltrane", "Sombrero Sam", and "Breeze & Soul", a very tasty little jangly number!

Le PamplemousseLe Spank/Monkey See Monkey Do ... 12-inch
AVI, 1977. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $4.99
"Le Spank" is probably the most successful track ever by this Rinder/Lewis side project – and for good reason, too! The cut's got a cool moogy groove that pops across the top nicely, a bit sparer than the rest of its disco contemporaries, and with a catchiness that's undeniable! This 12" version is over 10 minutes long, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Charles LloydDream Weaver ... CD
Collectables/Atlantic, 1966. Used ... $6.99
A classic set from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that really pushes forward all the experiments he'd begun in the Chico Hamilton group – and shows a bold move forward for rhythms in 60s jazz! The tracks are long, and spiral out wonderfully – but in ways that are different than those used by other creators of the time – like Eric Dolphy or John Coltrane. Even though leading the group on tenor and flute, Lloyd's got a real sense of rhythm to his playing – echoes of the Hamilton group – but set loose with a stellar quartet of younger players – including Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all perfect choices for inventive music like this! The standout cut is the amazing "Sombrero Sam", a tight little groover that we never tire of – and one that has Jarrett sounding much more in the pocket than you'd ever imagine – and other tracks include "Dream Weaver", "Autumn Sequence", and "Bird Flight".

Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch upwards of $40 when we get them in – and they fly right out the door as soon as they hit the web. Loop is the rarer of Johnny Lytle's two albums for the obscure Tuba label from Detroit. Johnny's classic trio, with Peppy Hinnant on organ, is backed by a larger group that features Wynton Kelly on piano and Willie Rodriguez on conga. New and Groovy is very nicely stripped down - and the focus of the album is on down-and-dirty groovers, perfect for the jazzy stepper set that still digs Lytle loads! Loads of short groovy steppin jazz vibes cuts, like "The Loop", "The Man", "The Snapper", "Selim", and way way more! CD

Henry ManciniTheme From Z & Other Film Music/Debut – The Philadelphia Orchestra Pops ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $10.99
A Henry Mancini double header – two albums back to back! First up is Theme From Z – cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well! The arrangements here are full, but still have a nice sort of focus – and include solos by players like Mancini on piano, Jimmy Rowles on electric calliope, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto, and Art Smith on recorder. Some of the best tracks have a groovy feel that really fits the date of the record, while others have a more traditional soundtrack approach – and tunes include "Theme From Z", "Airport Love Theme", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", "A Man A Horse A Gun", "Patton Theme", and Jobim's "Love Theme From The Adventurers". Debut has Henry Mancini making his debut as a conductor of the Philadelphia Pops – a larger orchestra than you'll usually hear on most Manini albums, which allows Hank to really open up in some more sophisticated modes! The songs are mostly more serious Mancini compositions – with solos on flute, oboe, violin, harpsichord, and trumpet – and titles include "Beaver Valley 37", "Dream Of A Lifetime", "Drummer's Delight", "Speedy Gonzalez", and "Strings On Fire".

Curtis Mayfield & Linda CliffordRight Combination/Rapping ... CD
Curtom, 1972/1980. New Copy 2CDs ... $8.99 13.99
2 of Curtis rarer moments – back to back on a 2CD set! Right Combination is an album of duets that Curtis cut with rising disco star Linda Clifford – who by 1980 may well have been earning more money for Curtom than Curtis! The album's about half disco tracks, half soul duets in a Chicago mode – and arrangements are by Gil Askey and Norman Harris. Tracks include "Ain't No Love Lost", "It's Lovin Time", "Love's Sweet Sensation", "Between You Baby & Me", and "The Right Combination". Plus, there's about 10 extra cuts added to the album – including lots of rare numbers by Linda and a few clubby tracks by Curtis, non LP numbers! Rapping is a rare promo-only radio show LP that features an interview with Curtis Mayfield, interspersed with musical tracks like "Underground", "Hell Below", and "We Gotta Have Peace". Excellent stuff, with a very cool sound, and like tuning into a radio show on an AM station in the early 70s! CD

International Anthem, 2016. New Copy ... $7.99 11.99
Ever-adventurous composer, arranger and coronet player Rob Mazurek teams up with similarly creative wanderer Emmett Kelly (Cairo Gang, Josh Abrams Natural Information Society and more)!

Ismael MirandaAsi Se Compone Un Son ... CD
Fania, 1973. Used ... $16.99
A key early moment for the great Ismael Rivera – really stepping out here strongly with a tight group of his own! Ismael's in the lead on vocals, but his arrangements for the group are quite strong too – cast in that best mix of jazz and Latin roots that you'll find in forward-thinking salsa from the time – played by a group that includes Nicky Marrero on timbales, Nelson Gonzalez on tres, Oscar Hernandez on piano, and Carlos De Leon on trumpet. Arrangements are by Louie Ramirez, Marty Sheller, and Carlos De Leon – and tracks include "Sonerito", "Ahora Si", "Cuidate Bien", "Asi Se Compone Un Son", "Nicolas", "Salvame", and "Mulence". CD

Jackie Mittoo & The Soul BrothersLast Train To Skaville ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid/Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
We give up! Just when we thought the gravy train had stopped running, the last train to skaville pulls into the station with 16 jaunty numbers fusing ska and rocksteady with a healthy dose of Jamaican soul at the hands of Jackie Mittoo and the Soul Brothers under the guidance of Coxsone Dodd! After the Skatalites busted up in the mid 60s, Dodd set about assembling a new house band, bringing Mittoo and a number of the original members of the Skatalites, including Lloyd Brevett and Roland Alphonso, together with some of the new, younger talent, and the fine folks at Soul Jazz have assembled a mighty, mighty set of their finest moments. But as Coxsone says in the liner notes, let's "Cut the chatter and spin the platter"! Includes "James Bond", "Voodoo Moon", "Chicken & Booze", "Hpney Pot", "Mr Flint", "Dr Ring Ding", "Got My Boogaloo", "Home Made", "Sufferer's Choice" and "Hot & Cold". LP, Vinyl record album

Marilyn MooreMoody Marilyn Moore ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99
A rare and exceptional vocal jazz LP – cut by the obscure Marilyn Moore, then the wife of Al Cohn – who's pictured in profile on the cover of the record! Marilyn's got a style that's somewhat raspy – clearly inspired by Billie Holiday at times, and not what you'd expect in comparison to some of the cooler, clearer female singers who worked on Bethlehem in the 50s. The backing is in a small group mode – with Cohn on tenor and bass clarinet, plus Don Abney on piano, Joe Wilder on trumpet, Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all in a nicely relaxed mode to fit the mellow, moody sound of the record. There's a nice sense of darkness throughout – a bit more edge than you might expect – and titles include "Trouble Is A Man", "Ill Wind", "Born To Blow The Blues", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "You're Driving Me Crazy".

✨✧ Harry MoscoCountry Boy ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Sweet grooves from Harry Mosco – once the leader of The Funkees, but stepping out here with some wicked work from the London scene at the end of the 70s! The album's got a snapping electric vibe – sometimes clubby, but with more of a funk feel overall – thanks to some heavy basslines that really give the best cuts a kind of darkness – as do the horns, which create these down-turning inflections that are quite different than the usual sort of Afro-styled groove! Things get pretty freewheeling as the album moves on – and there's a criss-crossing of modes that almost reminds us of some of the work that Ice cut on the French scene of the time. Titles include "I Feel Funky", "Harry's Party", "It's Too Late", "Country Boy", and "Wanderer". CD

David MurrayInterboogieology ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
No boogie here – at least not in the conventional sense – but a great little set from David Murray, recorded during the soulful prime of his early years on record! The album features a very hip quartet – one with Murray on tenor, Butch Morris on cornet, Johnny Dyani on bass, and Oliver Johnson on drums – joined by vocalist Marta Contreras on two tracks, who sings in this haunting, other-worldly way that's really great – almost more of an instrument than a voice, and a nice match for Murray's reedwork. The sound is relatively open at points, almost loft jazz-ish – and tracks are all quite long too, with titles that include "Home", "Namthini's Shadow", "Blues For David", and "Interboogieology". LP, Vinyl record album
