EmotionsSincerely ... LP
Red Label, 1984. Very Good ... $1.99
A great comeback for The Emotions – a post-Columbia album issued after a few years away from the business – but one that still has the girls' very much at the top of their game! The record's got a wonderful feel that's quite different from other directions the group might have pursued at the time – and most tracks are free from the too-commercial sounds that other female artists were shouldered with at the time – styles that oddly were often inspired by The Emotions' big successes of the late 70s. The vocals are great throughout – mixing leads and harmonies nicely – and arrangements are handled by Benjamin Wright, Billy Osborne, and Wayne Vaughn. Most tunes have a mellow or midtempo groove – with definite 80s instrumentation on keyboards and beats, but never in a way that's too over the top. Titles include "All Things Come In Time", "Sincerely", "Can't Blow Out The Candle", "You're The One", "Are You Through With My Heart", "Never Let Another", and "I Can Do Anything".

Red GarlandManteca ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Very Good ... $39.99
One of the best by Red Garland for Prestige – a totally cooking record that features some great added conga work from Ray Barretto! Ray's presence really helps the record live up to its Latin-styled title – and Garland's usual trio with Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums seems to get a whole new life from the added percussion – really stepping things up with a bit more of a groove than usual! The title cut – "Manteca" – is an 8 minute jam that's gone onto become a real jazz dance classic – and other tracks include "Exactly Like You", "S'Wonderful", and "Mort's Report". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black & silver label pressing, with deep groove, RVG Stereo stamp, and AB etch. Cover has a half split bottom seam.)

Red GarlandSolar ... LP
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good- ... $11.99
An obscure little quartet session from Red Garland – recorded with Les Spann on both guitar and flute, caught at a time when he was just starting to make waves on the New York scene! The presence of Spann gives the record a decidedly different feel than most of Garland's work on Prestige – as the hollow-body guitar tones bring some much bluesier inflections to some of the tunes, offset by more chromatic runs that really illuminate others. Red's own piano is still wonderfully soulful, and presented here with a pointed sense of economy on some numbers – and rhythm is by Sam Jones on bass and Frank Gant on drums. Titles include "Marie's Delight", "This Can't Be Love", "Blues For News", "I Just Can't See For Looking", and "Solar". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red Garland Trio with Eddie Lockjaw DavisMoodsville Vol 1 – Red Garland Trio Plus Eddie Lockjaw Davis ... CD
Prestige/Moodsville/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
Gentle genius from Red Garland – working here in classic trio formation with Sam Jones and Art Taylor – on a mellow set of late nite numbers and subtle ballads, all carried off in the best tradition of the Moodsville label! Eddie Lockjaw Davis joins the group on 3 tracks on the set – blowing in a style that's spare, open-mouthed, and amazingly soulful – more so almost than even his best ballad blowing on his organ-based records for Prestige during the same time. Davis really sparkles tremendously on the tunes "Softly Baby", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "We'll Be Together Again" – and other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Blue Room", and "Wonder Why".

Red Garland with John ColtraneHigh Pressure ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good ... $22.99
Beautiful early work from John Coltrane – recorded in the sensitive company of the Red Garland trio, and with Donald Byrd joining in on trumpet on the frontline! The tracks are longish and open – a bit more directed than the average blowing session numbers, but done with some of the similar spirit that Coltrane and Byrd both brought to those outings. The greatness of Coltrane's tenor needs no introduction at this point, but let us just say that the interplay with Garland is nicely subtle – and rounded with some great shades of soul. Titles include "Soft Winds", "Solitude", "Undecided", "Two Bass Hit", and "What Is There To Say". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Holloway with Jack McDuffCookin' Together ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $8.99
Groovy session that features this star tenorist of the Jack McDuff group as the leader, but which also has the same group backing him up – including McDuff on organ, George Benson on guitar, and Joe Dukes on drums. The set list has a good batch of originals, with the same sort of groove and strong sense of humor as the best McDuff recordings from the time. Tracks include "Brother Red", "No Tears", "Shout Brother", and "Something Funny". LP, Vinyl record album

Horde Catalytique Por La FinGestation Sonore (limited red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of the most "outside" albums recorded on the legendary Futura Records label in France – and that's saying quite a lot, given the legacy of avant jazz we've loved from their other records! The group here is a quartet – with Richard Accart on tenor and a variety of flutes; Frankcy Bourlier on vibes, pan flutes, harp, and even the inside "harp" of the piano; Jacques Fassola on bass, guitar, zen organ, and banjo; and Gil Sterg on drums, balafon, tumba, and other percussion – an amazing range of acoustic source material that produces an equally diverse sound overall! The musicians leap between the different instruments with the dexterity of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago at their height – and create a similar range of full-on to contemplative moments – but the overall music is maybe even less jazz than that famous group, with a stronger focus on textures and unusual sounds. Titles include the four part "Gestation Sonore". LP, Vinyl record album

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
No junk here – as this hip instrumental group take on the sounds of three Italian soundtrack masters – Ennio Morricone, Piero Umilani, and Armando Trovajoli – all while offering up some very unusual interpretations of their work! The songs are familiar, but the instrumentation is a nice change from simple recasting on keyboards – and instead, these guys use guitar as much as they do some of the older elements – often with some fuzz that brings a current of darkness to the tunes that even exceeds some of the originals! The approach is a bit like that of some of the work on the Cineploit label, but this group is a bit more fully-formed – with trumpet, flute, and bass clarinet from Enrico Gabrielli – and the album also features guest vocals from Edda Dell'Orso on one track too. Titles include "C'Eravamo Tanto Amati", "Masquerade", "Eat It", "Silenzio Nel Caos", "Per Un Pugno Di Dollari", "Gassman Blues", "The Body", and "Conflitti". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Mitchell-Harold Land QuintetHear Ye!!!! Hear Ye!!!! ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good ... $29.99
Killer work from a very unique little group – the short-lived union of bassist Red Mitchell and saxophonist Harold Land – heard here in one of the hippest dates from the LA scene of the early 60s! Mitchell's a well-known name from more straight ahead sides of the 50s, but working here with Land he really hits a great groove – that harder sort of soulbop sound that was coming out of LA for a few brief years in the 60s – played with a sense of tightness and fire that matched the best work of the time in New York! The whole group here is great – and the amazing Carmell Jones is in the group on trumpet, alongside Frank Strazzeri on piano and Leon Pettis on drums. The solos are great, and the writing is too – with some lively lyrical original compositions that include "Comara", "Pari Passu", "Catacomb", and "Triplin Awhile". A great bridge between Land's earlier sessions under his own name, and his later partnership with Bobby Hutcherson! LP, Vinyl record album

Leo Parker, Sahib Shihab, Red SaundersLate Great King Of The Baritone Sax – Rare Unissued Recordings Vintage 1951 to 1953 ... LP
Chess, Early 50s/1963. Very Good ... $7.99
A great set – and for more reasons than one! Most of the album features rare early 78s by jazz baritonist Leo Parker – one of the real giants on the instrument, and a player with a hard-wailing tone that makes it sound more like a tenor than a clunky giant-sized horn. Parker's tracks are all long out of print – and titles include "Tippin Lightly", "Anything Can Happen", "Candlelight Serenade", and "Hornet". The album also features a stellar modal groover from Sahib Shihab, recorded in Europe in 1963, and titled "Campi's Idea". The cut's very different than the rest of the record – but is almost worth the price alone! Also included is "Lawdy Lucy", by the Red Saunders group. LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Haynes rounds out the group on drums – giving the proceedings a warm soulful feel. Titles include "Swingin With Daddy-O", "Hale To Dale", "Laura", and "Trumpet Juice". LP, Vinyl record album

The album Forecast has the two hornmen blowing to acoustic accompaniment from a trio that includes Art Hillary on piano, Larry Gales on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums – jamming in boppish formation on tunes that include "Lester Leaps In", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Forecast: Sonny & Red", and "All God's Chillun".

VariousI'll Give You My Heart I'll Give You My Heart – The Cherry Red Singles Collection 1978 to 1983 (8CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 8 CDs ... $61.99
An amazing legacy in music – from one of the hippest British indie labels of the post-punk years! Cherry Red was one of the first record companies to really stretch out in sounds, and showcase the wider array of underground sounds in the UK beyond just the bigger punk sounds of the late 70s – and the label (which continues today) had an amazing ear for unusual artists and styles that instantly set them apart from the rest! Rough Trade might be the only other company who came close to the diversity embraced by Cherry Red – but given the scope of the material in this collection, they might still take a second seat – given that Cherry Red also did a great job of bringing together tracks from the larger American and European scenes too. The 8CD set is amazing – and includes 185 tracks in all, every a-side and b-side from the label's first five years' worth of singles – with music by Destroy All Monsters, The Runaways, Richard Strange, Can, Thomas Leer, Dead Kennedys, Alan Burnham, Medium Medium, Attila The Stockbroker, Marine Girls, Everything But The Girl, The Nightingales, Eyeless In Gaza, The Reflections, Marc Bolan, New Age Steppers, Tracey Thorn, The Monochrome Set, Felt, The Letters, Glaxo Babies, Robert Wyatt, Robert Fripp, Ivor Cutler, Andy Partridge, Lol Coxhill, Gilbert & Lewis, Kevin Hewick, and many others! Comes with a heavy 72 page book – telling the label's history, with lots of photos too. CD

✨✧ Red GarlandAll Mornin' Long (second cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever issued under the name of pianist Red Garland – a standout blowing session in the best Prestige Records style of the late 50s! Red's the leader, but the session's equally weighted towards all players – including trumpeter Donald Byrd, and tenorist John Coltrane – both of whom get plenty of space to solo on the album's very long tracks. Garland's piano seems to have a bit more bite than usual in the company of these heavyweights – and other players include George Joyner on bass and Art Taylor on drums – a pretty lean lineup for a session like this, which means even longer solos than usual. Side one of the record is the super-extended "All Morning Long", and side two includes "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and "Our Delight". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label Status pressing, in a purple tinted cover.)

✨✧ Red GarlandRed Garland's Piano ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own! The album's got a laidback, almost mellow feel that's a bit different from some of the Garland accompaniment on horn-based sessions – a style that's introspective, but always spirited – sprightly, but never flowery – that magical style that allowed Garland to bridge different worlds of jazz piano in the 50s. Paul Chambers is a perfect accompaniment here on bass, Art Taylor's work on drums is a masterpiece of understatement, and although the titles are all familiar, they're certainly given a special Garland touch! Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "If I Were A Bell", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "I Know Why", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red HoltLook Out!! Look Out!! ... LP
Argo, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare session as a leader from drummer Red Holt – cut at a time when he was making waves with the Ramsey Lewis Trio, and years before his work in Young Holt Unlimited! The record's got a really playful feel that points the way towards directions Holt would take later – a mix of soul jazz and more inventive arrangements that often put his drums at the forefront, and bend most elements of the tunes around the rhythms. Other members of the group are very well matched to follow Red's strong lead – and include regular partners Ramsey Lewis on piano and Eldee Young on bass – plus Floyd Martin on trombone, Roland Faulker on guitar, and the great, but little-known Wallace Burton on alto sax. Titles include "Look Out No 3", "Drum Drunk", "Soul Mist", "Little Liza Jane", and a cool take on "Ghost Riders". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 1 (red cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record that's virtually the blueprint for the sound of Hammond organ and tenor sax in soul jazz– the first of Eddie Lockjaw Davis' great run of cookbook albums for Prestige! The record features Lockjaw's gutsy tenor in a group alongside Jerome Richardson's lighter flute – both dancing wonderfully together over organ lines from a young Shirley Scott – playing here with a style that's a bit earthier and more bluesy than some of her later work. Rhythm is by George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and tracks include the classic 12 minute jammer "In The Kitchen", plus shorter tracks "Three Deuces", "The Chef", and "Have Horn, Will Blow".

✨✧ Red Garland with John ColtraneSoul Junction ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Soul Junction's a great title for this one – because the album's a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz! The title track of this one is worth the price of admission alone – as Red Garland works with John Coltrane and Donald Byrd on a 15 minute tune that starts slow, builds in a bluesy way with nearly 8 minutes of trio work by Garland, Art Taylor, and Jamil Nasser – then finally rolls into some great late nite solo work on the horns! Other tracks are a bit shorter, but follow a similar easygoing and soulful approach – and tracks include "Woody'N You", "Birk's Works", "I've Got It Bad", and "Hallelujah". From the same sessions that also created the album All Mornin Long! LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing, with deep groove and RVG stamp. Cover has moderate wear & staining due to moisture and wide clear tape over all seams.)

Arhoolie, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A late 60s recording by Lightning Hopkins – but one of his rootsiest of the decade, thanks to the gritty production of the Arhoolie label! There's a really personal, intimate feel to the record – almost as if the label just set up in Hopkins' living room while he was running through a few songs – which, at some level, is exactly what they did – and which is what makes the record so great! The mode really makes the album a standout in Hopkins' large catalog – and titles include "Slavery", "Take A Walk", "Tom Moore Blues", "Watch My Fingers", and "Love Is Like A Hydrant". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 600!)
