✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily 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 AdderleyAutobiography ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good ... $5.99
A gem of a record from Nat Adderley – filled with short soulful groovers, and done with an upbeat vibe that rivals some of Cannonball's best of the 60s! Joe Zawinul handled the arrangements, so there's definitely a strong influence here from the Cannon group – and although the players shift a bit throughout the course of the set, there's a really unified feel – thanks to a top-shelf lineup that includes Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, Ernie Royal on trumpet, Benny Powell on bass trombone, and Willie Bobo on percussion! The set features all original material by Nat – with older gems and new favorites that include "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Never Say Yes, "Jive Samba", "Stony Island", "Junkanoo", and "Work Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red and purple label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole. Top seam is partially split.)

Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet Featuring Bud Shank ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Very Good ... $29.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vien, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "Nono", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". Full LP that reissues the original 10" sets. LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing, flat edge – with heavy black label with deep groove and silver text. Cover has light wear, but is nice too.)

Gene AmmonsLight, Bluesy, & Moody ... LP
Wing/Mercury, Late 40s/Late 50s. Very Good ... $1.99
Essential early stuff by Jug! The record is a 50s compilation of singles that Jug cut for Mercury during the late 40s, when he was transforming from a hard swing player into a firey bopper – but one who was capable of infusing his solos with a rich sense of emotion that was enough to bridge both generations of jazz. The tracks are great, and are essential listening I the career of Gene Ammons. The original recordings are very tough to find – and even this album doesn't show up that often. Filled with great tracks – like "Red Top", "Hot Springs", "Concentration", "Jeet Jet", and "Odd En Dow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Wing pressing with deep groove.)

Gene Ammons & Sonny StittDig Him (aka We'll Be Together Again) ... LP
Argo, 1961. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a few numbers, but mostly blowing tenor head to head with Jug. Recorded in 1961 during Jug's great year of contract-breaking – and issued later in the 60s by Prestige under a different title. Titles include "A Mess", "Water Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", "Red Sails In The Sunset", and "A Pair Of Red Pants". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some moisture spots on front.)

Gene Ammons & Sonny Stitt with Jack McDuffSoul Summit – Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99 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".

✨✧ 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.)

✨✧ Chet BakerChet Baker Sings ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Fair ... $34.99
Looking for classic Chet Baker vocal tracks? This is the stuff! 14 tracks of haunting vocals by a young Chet, sung with small groups from the LA scene, and featuring trumpet solos next to his vocals. Titles include "That Old Feeling", "Look For The Silver Lining", "There Will Be Another You", and "I Get Along Without You Very Well". Every track is great, and these are the original vocal recordings that put Chet on the map! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Blakey & Thelonius MonkArt Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $18.99
Angular Monk meets hard-driving Art Blakey – in a session that's quite unique, and which has gone onto become one of the best-remembered Atlantic jazz sessions of the late 50s! The album features Blakey in that key non-Blue Note year of 1957 – a time when he was working with a variety of players, at a variety of labels, and taking some real chances with his music before settling into his more established hit Jazz Messengers sound. The group here is Art's own – with Johnny Griffin on tenor, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Spanky DeBrest on bass – augmented by the piano of Thelonious Monk – a match that might seem unlikely at first, but not so much so after you consider the great work that Monk and Griffin did together at Riverside during the late 50s. There's a nice match between Johnny's sharp-edged tenor and Monk's imaginative playing – and if anything, the record has Blakey, Hardman, and DeBrest moving dynamically to keep up with the flurry of modern ideas coming from Griffin and Monk! Tracks are almost all originals by Thelonious too – a fact that definitely helps keep up the "Monk-ish" sound of the record – titles that include "Evidence", "Blue Monk", "I Mean You", and "Rhythm A Ning" – alongside Griffin's "Purple Shades".

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".

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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue vinyl pressing, with red label. Cover has a sticker spot.)

Bunny Lion (Puddy Roots)Red ... CD
Starlight/Fantasy Memory, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
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.)

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

Red CallenderSwingin' Suite ... LP
Crown, 1955. Very Good ... $11.99
Beautiful bass work from 50s LA player Red Callender – heard here on this classic side recorded for the Modern imprint. Swingin Suite is easily one of Red's tightest sessions – a date that has Callender's basslines strongly leading a nonet of players that includes Harry Jones on trumpet, John Ewing on trombone, Willie Green on alto sax, and Buddy Collette on flute and tenor. Collette's lines have a nice sharp edge throughout, and soar out beautifully amidst the bigger backings – and although a "suite", the whole session's got a much more relaxed feel than that compositional title might make you think. Tracks include "On Again", "Greenery", "Pastel", "Dancers", "October Blue", "Bihari", "Skyline", and "Outlines". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Crown pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split on the top seam lined with clear tape and some moderate wear.)
