VariousComplete Norman Granz Jam Sessions (5CD Box Set) ... CD
Verve, Early/Mid 50s. Used 5 CDs ... $42.99
An incredible document of a key genre in 50s jazz on record – the jam session tradition, recorded beautifully for Verve records by the legendary Norman Granz! The idea of a jam session was nothing new at the time, of course, but it was mostly a live phenomenon – known to players from concerts and club dates, or presented on vinyl by Granz, in his celebrated Jazz At The Philharmonic sessions. These dates mark a move into the studio by Granz – one that captures the same sort of energy and unique pairings of musicians that went down in the live sessions, with the added benefit of studio technology to make the work sound even clearer, and more intimate. The 5CD set brings together all 9 Jam Session albums – packaged beautifully in a slipcase with original album cover art, and a full 72 page booklet on the musicians, sessions, and titles included. Players include nearly everyone who might have worked for Verve in the 50s – Benny Carter, Charlie Parker, Johnny Hodges, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Buddy DeFranco, and countless others – and titles include "Jam Blues", "Funky Blues", "Apple Jam", "Blues For The Count", "Jamming For Clef", "Rose Room", "Blue Lou", and "Lullaby In Rhythm" – all in very long versions!

James BrownIt's a Man's Man's Man's World ... LP
King, 1966. Very Good ... $39.99
James Brown, proud and loud – a smoking 60s album that provides a great link between his earlier styles and his freer roots – with a brilliant blend of funk, soul, and a touch of raw R&B! Given the power of The Godfather at this point, there's no denying that even the older cuts have a punch that few others could match – making for a record that feels mighty darn unified, despite the stretch of time between a few of the recordings. Titles include the funky gems "Ain't That a Groove (pts 1 & 2)", "The Scratch", "Is It Yes or Is It No", and James' great version of "The Bells" that's always been one of our favorites – plus Just You & Me", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Come Over Here", and "I Don't Mind". The cover also comes with an "autographed" photo of James on the back with the text "James Brown Fans – Frame This 8 x 10 Picture" – and an image that says "Soul Brother #1 Is Peeking At You Thru The Key Hole"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label King pressing in the sparkly cover, with some corner wear.)

✨✧ Michael KiwanukaLove & Hate ... CD
Interscope, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that arguably has even more majesty than the debut album from Michael Kiwanuka – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of that now-classic record! Production here is by Dangermouse, Inflo, and Paul Butler – and there's an airiness to some songs that really has Kiwanuka's vocals floating in space – maybe more iconic than before, and held nicely in a balance between open sonic elements and more crispily-focused instrumental touches. Michael uses folksy currents in his vocals that almost recall Nina Simone during her Philips Records years – and titles include "Black Man In A White World", "One More Night", "Love & Hate", "Rule The World", "Father's Child", "The Final Frame", and "Cold Little Heart".

Max RoachComplete Remastered Recordings On Black Saint/Soul Note Vol 2 (Pictures In A Frame/In The Light/Live At Vielharmonie/Scott Free/Easy Winners ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1980s. New Copy 6CD ... $43.99 45.99
Drummer Max Roach was really on fire during the 80s – a time when the Black Saint/Soul Note label gave his music more exposure than ever, and allowed Max to try out so many great concepts with a new sense of freedom! Roach first came up during the early years of bebop, exploded with righteous power in the 60s, and sometimes never got the presence he deserved in the 70s – when some of his best work was only recorded in Japan. These records really correct that lack of wider presentation of Max's music – and the titles here show an especially strong focus on expanding the spiritual ideas that Roach recorded with his bass-less Quartet in the decade before. The quartet appears strongly on the albums Pictures In A Frame, Scott Free, and In The Light – which feature Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, Odean Pope on tenor, and Calvin Hill on piano. Most of these players show up on the other albums too – including Easy Winners and Live At Vielharmonie Munich – with his Double Quartet, which takes the Quartet and expands it with a string quartet. The set also features the beautiful It's Christmas Again – a nicely spiritual set with work from Bridgewater, Pope, Tony Scott, Lee Konitz, and Tyrone Brown. 6 albums in all – each in tiny LP-styled sleeves!

Channels/Continentals/Bop-Chords/Love-NotesRumble ... CD
Jubilee/Collectables, Late 50s. Used ... $4.99
One of Jubilee Records' excellent collections of earlier vocal group material – served up in a cool covered package with some nice Scorpio Rising overtones! The collection doesn't exactly come across with the violence implied by the name, and most material here has a style that's older than the cover image would imply – but the album, like others in the series, was a key format for presenting cuts known only as singles – at a level that gave them a bit more prominence in the market. The whole thing's great – music that's at the best level of early group soul on the New York scene – and titles include "Fine Fine Frame" and "Dear Lord" by The Continentals, "The Gleam In Your Eye" and "The Closer You Are" by The Channels, "Castle In The Sky" and "When I Woke Up This Morning" by The Bop Chords, and "If I Could Make You Mine" and "Tonight" by The Love Notes.

✨✧ Horace ParlanHappy Frame Of Mind ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper cover and lineup at some point in the 80s! Why Blue Note waited so long is a mystery, because the album's a gem throughout – almost more important, and more starkly modern than any of Parlan's other work for the label. Booker Ervin leads the frontline on tenor, alongside Johnny Coles on trumpet, Grant Green on guitar, and the rhythm section of Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Parlan's choice of material is fantastic – with a number of Africanist tracks that feature unique rhythmic patterns that really push the soloists! Titles include "A Tune For Richard", "Dexi", "Home Is Africa", "Kucheza Blues", and "Back From The Gig". CD

CureSeventeen Seconds (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fiction/Elektra, 1980. Sealed (reissue)... $16.99
A haunting and relatively spare early one by The Cure that holds up incredibly well – standing true to the test of time as strongly as anything in their canon! From the perspective of fans who got into The Cure anytime from the mid 80s onward, these earlier efforts might initially sound like a moody framework for the more grandly produced records to come, give it a couple listens, because the minimal structure is incredibly strong! It's just their second album, but the eerily melodic Robert Smith vocals, his just as distinctive guitars, and then new bass player Simon Gallup's sound have The Cure mood in full semi-gloomy, yet wholly beautiful bloom! Includes the great title track, "A Reflection", "Play For Today", "Secrets", "In Your House", "Three", "The Final Sound", "A Forest", "M" and "At Night". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CoastersCoasters ... LP
Atco, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic full-length album from The Coasters – one of the few the group ever cut for Atlantic Records – and a perfect illustration of everything that made them so great! Almost every cut here was penned by the team of Jerry Lieber & Mike Stoller – who were also working with the group in the studio, and giving this amazingly pyrotechnic approach to group harmony – one that moved way past the simple street corner modes of a few years before, and which brought all sorts of sinister and sharp changes to their music! The vocals come across with plenty of soul, and also a huge amount of dexterity and wit as well – so much so that just about nobody else could make these tunes shine so well as The Coasters on these vintage recordings. Titles include "Young Blood", "Searchin", "Lola", "I Must Be Dreamin", "One Kiss Led To Another", "Riot In Cell Block # 9", "Framed", "Smokey Joe's Cafe", "Turtle Dovin'", "Framed", and "Down In Mexico".

✨✧ Tania Maria And The Viva Brazil QuartetLive At The Blue Note ... CD
Concord, 2002. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning live set from Tania Maria – recorded with her Viva Brazil combo in a mode that's very similar to her classic recordings from 70s France! The sound here is great – Tania on keyboards and vocals, with backing only from bass, drums, and percussion – a spare framework that allows Tania to groove in a free and breezy way over the album's long tracks. The result is an instant classic – one of Tania's best records in years, and a delight throughout, especially if you dig her older albums! Titles include "Granada", "Quase", "Funky Tamborim", "Florzinha", "E Carnaval", and "Valen". CD

✨✧ Roxy MusicCountry Life (Censored Cover) ... LP
EG, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly the best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "Three & Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the censored cover.)
