✨✧ VariousWhich Way Does The Blood Red River Flow? – Some Of The Best Songs Recorded For The Testament Label 1963 to 1970 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful sampling of work from the Testament label of the 60s – mostly recorded in the south by aging players who never would have gotten their due, had the label not gone out of their way to capture them in these years! The assortment of tracks is really well-chosen – and most of the work is very rootsy and acoustic – with guitar and vocals as the core elements that drive the sound throughout. The package is a great illustration of the fact that although blues was getting pretty electrified up north during the 60s, it still had a very traditional sound back down closer to the delta. Titles include "She's Mine She's Yours" by Eddie Lee Jones, "Jack Ain't Had No Water" by Jack Owens, "Low Bonnie" by Jimmie Tarlton, "Blood Red River" by Peg Leg Howell, "Windin Ball" by Elijah Brown, "Must Have Been The Devil" by Jack Owens, and "Amazing Grace" by Fred McDowell.

Nat AdderleyLive At Memory Lane ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
Nice hard swingin' quintet session, with a good late 60's groove. Nat Adderley borrows brother Cannonball's pianist Joe Zawinul, and Joe Henderson sits in on tenor. The set was recorded live, with the same sort of relaxed funky groove as the Cannonball live sets from the time. Cuts include "Fun", "Lavender Woman", "Painted Desert", and "On My Journey Now". Nice stuff, and the kind of material that Atlantic probably won't reissue anytime in the near future. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eric AlexanderMode For Mabes ... CD
Delmark, 1998. Used ... $6.99
A dynamic sextet outing from tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander – easily one of the best straight jazz albums recorded by the Delmark label in the 90s, put together with a rock-solid sound all the way through! Alexander's tenor would be enough to make the record great, but the album also features piano from perfect partner Harold Mabern – once Eric's teacher, but a player who's set on fire anew by his presence on dates like these. Other members of the group include trumpeter Jim Rotondi – nicely focused in the frontline here, and matching Alexander and trombonist Steve Davis on the heads with a classic sort of Blue Note energy. Bass is by John Webber and drums are by George Fludas – and titles include a great modal reading of "Naima", plus "Mode For Mabes", "Sugar Ray", "Erik The Red", "Love Thy Neighbor", "Stay Straight", and "For Heaven's Sake".

Gene Ammons & Sonny Stitt with Jack McDuffSoul Summit – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
The brain trust of soul jazz in the early 60s – led by tenorist Gene Ammons on both albums! Soul Summit Volume one features Ammons and Sonny Stitt on tenor, plus Jack McDuff on Hammond – a definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting plenty of room to do their thing! Both Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt are on tenor in the front, working with the respect and confidence they'd forged together on other co-led sessions from the time – and Jack McDuff's a great addition to the set, playing Hammond with his newly-lean tone, and really helping things move along nicely. Drummer Charlie Persip has a nicely booming style here – one that gets the group out of the box from the get-go, and McDuff's handling all the bass work on the organ, which always makes for a tight rhythmic romp! Most tunes are in that great raw Prestige mode from the old days, as you'd guess by titles like "Tubby", "Dumplin", and "Shuffle Twist" – alongside other numbers that include "Sleeping Susan" and "Out In The Cold Again". Soul Summit Vol 2 is a set that's less a "summit" than a great collection of groovy work for Prestige Records in the 60s – tracks that didn't make it onto other full albums of the time, but which feature material by some of the most soulful talents on the label! Tenorist Gene Ammons is the main star here – stretching out wonderfully on most numbers on the record – although the set also features added tenor work from Red Holloway, George Barrow, and Harold Vick! The mighty Jack McDuff lends his Hammond to a few tunes, Etta Jones sings on three numbers, and the record even features trumpet from Clark Terry, alto from Oliver Nelson, and congas from Ray Barretto too – on cuts that include "Scram", "Cool Cool Daddy", "Ballad For Baby", "If You Are But A Dream", "But Not For Me", and "Love I've Found You".

Sil Austin & Red PrysockBattle Royal ... LP
Mercury, 1959. Very Good ... $9.99
Hard-wailing tenor work from two of the late 50's best R&B sax stars! Both Prysock and Austin were often recorded by Mercury in albums that didn't show their best sides, or which didn't let them open up the same way as in their very popular live sets – but this album has them playing head-to-head, on long extended tracks that seek to recreate the "battle of the tenors" style from a few years back! The record features 2 long tracks – "Take The A Train" and "No 1 Sil" – plus a shorter mellower number, "Kenny's Blues". Very nice – and one that we almost never see on vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Mercury pressing, with adeep groove.)

Eddie BaccusFeel Real ... LP
Smash, 1962. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Great lost soul jazz organ grooves! Eddie Baccus was a blind organist discovered by Roland Kirk and brought to Smash Records – and he played with Kirk in a trio in Cleveland before Kirk left to join Mingus in NYC during the early 60s. After becoming a Mercury artist, Kirk talked Smash into recording this one-and-only album by this Midwest talent – and the record's a nicely grooving set of tracks that feature Baccus' trio, plus some nice guest flute work by Kirk! Most tracks are originals, with a nice gutbuckety sound – and titles include "Flight 464", "Phoebe", "A Breath In The Wind", and "Feel Real". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small bit of marker on the back. A nice copy overall, though.)

BeatlesLet It Be ... LP
Apple, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together! There's great hints here of the solo work to come – especially from George Harrison and John Lennon – and the Phil Spector production really helps open up a new sound for the group. Includes the genius cuts "I Dig A Pony", "Two Of Us", "Across The Universe", "I Me Mine", "One After 909", "For You Blue", and "Let It Be". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big MaybelleBlues, Candy, & Big Maybelle ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $29.99
The title kind of says it all – as the album's a set of 10 bluesy tracks by Maybelle, built around her perennial hit "Candy" – a sweet and dreamy tune that's been forever kept alive by her version! The style is very much in the vein of that hit, and other tunes on the album include "Ring Dang Dilly", "Blues Early Early", "Pitiful", "So Long", "Ramblin Blues", and "There I've Said It Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersRitual ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1957. Very Good- ... $19.99
A hard-swinging cooker from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – recorded during the landmark year of 1957 – when Blakey's group was open to recording for a number of different labels, in a number of different settings! The set was originally done for the west coast stalwart Pacific Jazz, but it's got a sound that's much more in the hardbop mode of the New York scene – all the fire and intensity that Blakey first cooked up for Blue Note, cast out with a slight sense of openness here in the less iconic setting. Players include Jackie McLean on alto, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Sam Dockery on piano – and the album's right up there with Vik/RCA, Savoy, and Chess material they cut at the time. Tracks include "Touche", "Sam's Tune", "Once Upon A Groove", and "Wake Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Hamilton BohannonBrunswick Complete Singles Collection ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
Killer cuts from the legendary Hamilton Bohannon – an artist who first broke big on the Brunswick label with a really unique approach to a groove! Bohannon's cuts were always funky, but never straight funk – and instead, he had this minimalist way of layering together elements that was definitely a huge influence on later disco and club – but heard here in a style that's much more raw and down to earth! The package offers up 23 tracks that come from 45s that Bohannon did for the Brunswick label – some of which have different mixes, and all of which are razor-sharp groovers that are sure to please any fan of funk. Titles include "Run It On Down Mr DJ (parts 1 & 2)", "Come Winter", "Happy Feeling", "Gittin Off", "Have A Good Day", "Bohannon's Beat", "East Coast Groove", "The Fat Man", "Red Bone", "Truck Stop", "Stop & Go", "Save Their Souls", and "The Pimp Walk".

✨✧ Clifford BrownRemember Clifford ... LP
Mercury, 1955/1963. Very Good ... $4.99
A lasting tribute to Brownie! The album was released some years after Brown died, and is comprised of songs from his 1955 album Clifford Brown With Strings, plus a few tracks from other recording sessions from that year before his death. The players include Richie Powell (Bud Powell's brother who also died in the crash with Brown),piano; Max Roach on drums and Harold Land and Sonny Rollins on tenor sax. Brown's original composition "Sandu" and Richie Powell's own "Time" are included as well as "Yesterdays," "Cherokee (Indian Love Song)," "Willow Weep for Me" and an unusual version of "Take the A Train."

Dave BrubeckJazz At The College Of The Pacific (10 inch LP) ... LP
Fantasy, 1953. Very Good ... $9.99
Classic early live material from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – already humming along nicely with some great alto sax from Paul Desmond! The group's in fine form here – a bit more relaxed and open than on their Columbia recordings – with plenty of creative piano lines from Dave, showing just a slight dose of modernism, and lots more of that cool, icy alto sax work that made Desmond a standout right from the start. Rhythm is by Ron Crotty on bass and Joe Dodge on drums – and titles include "Laura", "Lullaby In Rhythm", "For All We Know", "All The Things You Are", and "I'll Never Smile Again".

Bunny Lion (Puddy Roots)Red (with bonus download) ... LP
Starlight/Fantasy Memory, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 21.98
Rare work from Bunny Lion – aka Puddy Roots, a crucially overlooked reggae vocalist of the time! The rhythms here all come from Linval Thompson tracks – and the set was licensed by Linval himself – but the real attraction is the vocals, which have these cool, compelling ways of arching up and down over the grooves – almost more London extrapolation than pure Jamaican roots, but we mean that in the best way possible! The album was briefly issues on the London label Starlight, but gets its first appearance here with real credit to Puddy – on tracks that include "Rat Trap", "Bubbling Dub", "Bunny Lion At The Control", "Natty Rise & Shine", "Ilie", "Go Rockers", and "Heart & Soul".

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good ... $16.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & Gold label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Donald ByrdByrd's Word ... LP
Savoy, 1955. Very Good ... $99.99
One of Donald Byrd's earliest sessions as a leader – a hard and heavy all-star set that features a quintet with Frank Foster on tenor, Hank Jones on piano, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Dave Chambers on bass. The tracks all are long and have that almost blowing session Savoy approach – free and easy, and a very different style that Byrd's more composed work with Gigi Gryce from the same time. It's great to hear Donald open up in such a setting – really getting an edge on titles that include "Star Eyes", "Long Green", "Winterset", and "Gotcha Goin & Comin". LP, Vinyl record album

CalifoneRoomsound ... CD
Perishable, 2001. Used ... $14.99
The great early Califone album – originally issued on the group's own Perishable label in 2001! Califone was essentially born when Tim Rutili & company shed much of the heaving, murky rock riffery that characterized their earlier work in the 90s Chicago heroes Red Red Meat for more pastoral, elemental and meandering (but no less mesmerizing) sounds. We never would have guessed back in 1994 that we could live without a Tim Rutili effort that didn't feature the derlirously heavy, chest-cavity rattling electric sound Red Red Meat floored us with on Jimmywine Majestic. It's good to be wrong, sometimes. Tracks include "Trout Silk", "Bottles & Bones", "Fisherman's Wife", "Porno Starlet Vs. Rodeo Clown", "Slow Rt. Hand", "Rattlesnakes Smell Like Split Cucumber" and more. CD
