Osborne & GilesStranger In The Night ... LP
Red Label, 1985. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Mid 80s soul from the team of Billy Osborne and Attala Zane Giles – a short-lived duo who are probably best remembered for this set on the equally short-lived Red Label – one of the last gasps of the Chicago soul business for many years! There's a relatively polished feel to the set – with some contemporary ballads nestled alongside a few more upbeat groovers that echo soul modes of a few years before. Overall, there's a bit of stiffness to the set that possibly comes from too much polish, but a few of the mellower tracks make up for the clunkier spots on the groovers. Titles include "Keep Pushin On", "I'll Save Forever For You", "I Want To Be With You", "I Can't Stop This Feeling", "Be Right By Your Side", and "Night On The Town". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

Red Garland/Kenny Burrell/Jackie McLeanSoul Jazz Vol 1 – All Mornin Long/All Day Long/Lights Out ... LP
Prestige/Bluesville, Late 50s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A special package that brings together 3 of the best blowing session numbers recorded by Prestige at the end of the 50s – all of which are perfect examples of the genre at its best! First up is "All Morning Long", recorded by Red Garland with a group that includes John Coltrane and Donald Byrd – all with plenty of room to blow, as the track takes up all of side one! Side two features the follow up "All Day Long", by the Prestige All Stars with Kenny Burrell, Donald Byrd, Frank Foster, and Tommy Flanagan – followed by Jackie McLean's classic "Lights Out", played by a group that also includes Donald Byrd and Elmo Hope!

Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg Reads Kaddish – A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 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.)

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". LP, Vinyl record album

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
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
(Limited edition colored vinyl!)

✨✧ King CrimsonRed ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $34.99
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

Nina SimoneNina Simone Sings Ellington (red cover) ... LP
Colpix, 1962. Very Good ... $6.99
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Ghent pressing. Cover has some stains on the opening.)

VariousSoul Slabs Vol 1 (red colored vinyl – with download) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Colemine, 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
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.

✨✧ Buena VistasHere Come Da Judge/Big Red ... 7-inch
Marquee, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice one! "Here Comes Da Judge" takes the famous comedic vocal refrain, and creates a nice rollicking funky number with some great rolling piano chords that kick off right as the song begins! "Big Red" is more of a heavy sax workout, but both tracks swing real nice nice nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Red GarlandManteca ... LP
Prestige, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing – with deep groove and RVG stamp. Cover has a split spine & seams that are lined with clear tape. Back cover has a scribble of marker & a sticker spot.)

✨✧ 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 GarlandRed In Bluesville ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Yellow label NJ pressing with deep groove and RVG stamp. Labels have several name stamps. Cover has a few name stamps on back.)

✨✧ Red Garland Trio with Eddie Lockjaw DavisMoodsville Vol 1 – Red Garland Trio Plus Eddie Lockjaw Davis ... CD
Prestige/Moodsville/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Dave PikeInfra-Red ... LP
MPS, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing grooves from the legendary Dave Pike – one of the American vibists' few albums for the MPS label – and quite possibly the trippiest of the bunch! The set's a beautiful illustration of the freedoms that the MPS label offered American players like Pike – a chance to really open up and do his thing, and find new sides and styles he'd never expressed before on his records back home! Of course, part of the strength of the set is the group he's working with here – an ensemble that includes the amazing Volker Kreigel on guitar (and sitar!), plus JA Rettenbacher on bass and Peter Baumeister on drums. But, lest you think this is a standard quartet affair, let it be known that all players – including Pike – handle a very wide variety of instruments throughout the session – including bongos, toys, maracas, other percussion, and more – even a bit of vocalizations as well! Tracks often have a slow-building, slightly-trippy feel that's totally great – and Kreigel's work on guitar is a perfect pairing with Pike's vibes – especially as both players are clearly digging an Eastern influence for the set. Titles include "Suspicious Child", "Soul Eggs", "Raga Jeeva Swara", "Rabbi Mogen's Hideout", "Attack Of The Green Misers", "Infra Red", and "Send Me The Yellow Guys". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has unglued seams and a name in marker on front & back. Labels have some marker.)

✨✧ 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

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Horde Catalytique Por La FinGestation Sonore (limited red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Australian Jazz QuartetAustralian Jazz Quartet/Quintet ... LP
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good ... $14.99
Forget the hokey kangaroo picture on the cover, because the record's a mighty sweet set of 50s modern jazz – played by some key musicians from Australian who were working in the US at the time! The record's got a style that's somewhere between the hippest sessions of LA and Sweden at the time – all the coolness of both scenes, but a sense of playful expression that really comes through on some of the more unusual passages. The core group features Errol Buddle and Dick Healey on reeds, Bryce Rhode on piano, and Jack Brokensha on vibes – with added work from John Fawcett or Jimmy Gannon on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums. Titles include "Loose Walk", "Like Someone In Love", "Music For Walkin", "Fascinating Rhythm", "A Foggy Day", and "Little Girl Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Players include Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Ernie Wilkins, Marshall Royal, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, Bennie Powell, and Freddie Green – plus Basie, of course. Titles include "Two Franks", "Ska Di Didle Dee Bee Doo", "Rails", "Blues Backstage", and "Perdido" – and there's a very strong focus on the best soloists in the group! (Note: this material was also issued under the title The Band Of Distinction – but this is the first version.) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label Clef pressing with a trumpeter logo & deep groove.)
