Red CallenderSwingin' Suite ... LP
Crown, 1955. Very Good ... $6.99
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

Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg Reads Kaddish – A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 20.98
The one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at the height of his hippie years here – and the poem Kaddish is a freewheeling, spiritually-infused work that is quite different than some of the earlier beat material. Ginsberg draws both on his Jewish roots and his increasing conflict with society for the piece – which is presented here in a lively recording done at Brandeis in 1964. Reissue features new notes and Ginsberg items for the package! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1700 on red vinyl.)

Red Holloway with Jack McDuffCookin' Together ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $4.99
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

Lightnin HopkinsTexas Blues Man (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.99
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".

King CrimsonRed ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $29.99
One of the heaviest early King Crimson albums – a set that really has the group taking off even more than before – pushing the needles way into the red with their own sort of sonic intensity! The group's a trio this time around – with the legendary Robert Fripp on guitar, really carving out the sound with an edge that's incredibly sharp – plus the great John Wetton on vocals and bass, giving the group an unexpected sense of soul – and lots of mighty drums from Bill Bruford too! Additional instrumentation comes from some cats who really help round out the more complicated edges of the Crimson sound – David Cross on violin, Mel Collins on soprano sax, Marc Charig on cornet, and Ian McDonald on soprano sax. Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Starless", "Providence", "One More Red Nightmare", and "Red". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Mitchell-Harold Land QuintetHear Ye!!!! Hear Ye!!!! ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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

Mel TormeMel Torme At The Red Hill ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the grooviest Mel Torme albums ever – a smoking little live set that has the Velvet Fog hitting a whole new soulful sound for the 60s – with a leaner groove than ever before! Backing is from the trio of pianist Jimmy Wisner – although Mel himself also plays a bit of piano on the record – and the rhythms have this upfront, super-tight sound that really makes Torme's vocals pop – coming across with a fresh, swinging sound that's quite a change from the 40s and 50s! Yet throughout it all, ol' uncle Mel still keeps his pipes in perfect tune – that amazing voice that never lets up for a minute – and which holds its own beautifully on tunes that include "Anything Goes", "Love For Sale", "Love Is Just Around the Corner", "Shakin The Blues Away", and "In Other Words".

✨✧ Amina BarakaAmina Baraka & The Red Microphone ... CD
ESP, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amina Baraka's holding a megaphone on the cover, but she hardly needs it at all – given the righteous power of her voice on this album – still completely amazing after all these years! The album follows in the best tradition of work started by Amiri Baraka back in the 60s – a mixture of spoken knowledge and avant jazz, with backing by a group that includes Ras Moshe Burnett on tenor and flute, Rocco John Iacavone on curved soprano sax and piano, John Pietaro on drums and percussion, and Laurie Towers on bass. The approach is wonderful – and the record really feels like some lost underground relic of the 70s, the sort that the ESP label might have issued back in the day. Titles include "The Fascist", "Time Step", "The Spirit Of Billy BAng", "For Margaret Walker Alexander", and "Afro American Child". CD

Prestige, Late 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent hard bop sides from Red Garland, originally recorded for the Prestige label and issued on the albums High Pressure, Dig It and Soul Burnin'. Featuring either Donald Byrd and John Coltrane or Richard Williams and Oliver Nelson up front and George Joyner and Arthur Taylor or Peck Morrison and Charlie Persip in the rhythm section, these sides crackle with a wonderful inventiveness that reveals why Garland played alongside 'Trane onso many classic sides from this era. 9 tracks in all, most nice lengthy takes where everyone gets a chance to stretch out, including "Two Bass Hit", "Billie's Bounce", "Solitude", "Lazy Mae" and "On Green Dolphin Street".

✨✧ Sonny RedSonny Red ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic album as a leader from Sonny Red – a saxophonist who never got much chance to record under his own name, but always gave us something special when he did! Sonny recorded famously with Donald Byrd and Curtis Fuller in the 60s – but here, he's in an even hipper 70s mode of his own – a bit modal, a bit spiritual – in ways that make the whole album feel like some of the best 70s efforts on the Black Jazz label, with a righteous quality we might never have expected in Red a decade before! Sonny blows tenor, alto, and flute – all of them with a sharp, soulful edge – and he works here in a fantastic quartet that includes Cedar Walton on piano, whose own shadings give the record a lot of depth – plus the great Billy Higgins on drums, and Herbie Lewis on bass. Titles include a great remake of "Mustang", which Red recorded with Donald Byrd – plus "And Then Again", "Love Song", "Tears", and "Rodan". CD

✨✧ Don Reno & Red Smiley & The Tennessee Cut UpsReno & Smiley – The Early Years – 1951 to 1959 (4CD set) ... CD
King/Gusto, 1950s. New Copy 4CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A long-overdue look at the early recordings by the team of Don Reno and Red Smiley – a pair of King Records artists in the 50s who were as important to the rising sophistication of bluegrass as The Stanley Brothers or Bill Monroe! The pair could harmonize in a way that was every bit as sweet and heavenly as The Louvin Brothers – and Don Reno especially had a great range that really came in handy with the range of material the group covered – styles that are especially strong on spiritual and heartbreaking themes, which the pair did better than most! This package is a treasure trove – the first time that this material has properly been presented – and although handled by the sometimes-cheapo Gusto label, presented here with full liner notes, photos, and lots of details on the vintage King Records sessions – really a Bear Family style of presentation. The 4CD set features 109 tracks in all – and titles include "Mack's Hoedown", "Love Call Waltz", "Mountain Church", "I'm Using My Bible For A Roadmap", "When I Safely Reach That Other Shore", "I Can Hear The Angels Singing", "Mountain Rosa Lee", "She Has Forgotten", "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Dark As A Dungeon", "I Want To Know", "Missle Ride", "Banjo Riff", "Kneel Down", "Cumberland Gap", and lots lots more.

✨✧ VariousSoul Slabs Vol 1 (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Colemine, 2010s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very well-titled set – given that the Colemine Records label has given us some mighty soulful slabs of wax in recent years! Although a small label, in the hinterland of Ohio, Colemine is fast rising to be one of the coolest funk labels in the world – right up there on a par with older classics like Desco and Soul Fire, and almost able to challenge the supremacy of the Daptone sound! Yet Colemine is also a bit more wide-ranging than some of those other labels, too – as you'll hear in the rich array of sounds within – all pulled from previous funky 45s on the label, many of which are out of print – and presented here in a fantastic full length set. Titles include "Don't Get Caught" by The Droptones, "Yo Todo T Yo" by The Rugged Nuggets, "Street Sweeper" by The Grease Traps, "Like Yesterday" by The Monophonics, "Pacified" by Soul Scratch, "Remember When" by Leroi Conroy, "Jesse's Jing" by In Motion Collective, "Next To You" by Gene Washington & The Ironsides, and "Suction" by On The Spot Trio.

✨✧ Red GarlandRed In Bluesville ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Red Garland albums of the late 50s – thanks to a slightly different rhythm section that features Sam Jones on bass and Art Taylor on drums – both of whom work beautifully with Red in a gutbuckety set of tunes! The style isn't exactly soul jazz, but it's clear that Garland's feeling a bit of pressure from some of the up and comers on the scene – and he digs a bit deeper into bluesy roots here, in a setting that makes especially nice use of Jones' work on bass. Titles include "He's A Real Gone Guy", "See See Rider", "Trouble In Mind", "St. Louis Blues", and "Theme From M Squad". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marty PaichMarty Paich Quartet Featuring Art Pepper (180 gram pressing – red vinyl) ... LP
Tampa/VAP (Japan), 1956. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic Art Pepper album – from his best period! The album's one of those smaller-label, mid 50s gems that Art cut in LA during some of his "troubled years" – all sessions that are great musically, but which are often overshadowed by some of Pepper's more famous work for bigger, more enduring labels. If you're at all a fan of Pepper, though, don't pass this one up – because the album's got a razor-sharp edge that's really wonderful – a keen exploration of tone that we'd rank right up there with a rare few Pepper albums of the time – and which is carried off here with an approach that's disarmingly easy-going, but very carefully placed on every note. Marty Paich's the real leader of the group on piano – even though we think Art's the star of the set – and bass is by Buddy Clark, and drums by Frank Capp. Titles include "Abstract Art", "All The Things You Are", "Marty's Blues", and "Pitfall".

✨✧ Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
