Amina BarakaAmina Baraka & The Red Microphone ... CD
ESP, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
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

✨✧ Clifford BrownClifford Brown Memorial (Prestige) (red cover) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Early 50s material recorded by the late Clifford Brown – issued here in a classic "memorial" package slightly after his death in 1956! And while Brown never recorded much for Prestige – and never really as a leader – these sides are still a great example of his completely unique touch on the trumpet! The first half of material was recorded in 1953 – and features Brown soloing with Tadd Dameron's group on the tracks "Philly JJ", "Chose Now", and "Dial B For Beauty". The other set features Brown and Art Farmer as the lead soloists with the Swedish All Stars, a group led by Quincy Jones – and tracks on that session include "Stockholm Sweetnin", "Scuse These Blues", and "Lover Come Back To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Red GarlandSaying Something ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
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".

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
(Limited edition of 600!)

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!)

Pee Wee King & Red StewartTennessee Waltz & Slowpoke ... LP
Nashville, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
Nice later work from this duo who really helped set the tone for postwar country in the alte 40s – a set that features plenty of guitar and vocals from Redd, who was Pee Wee's main attraction in the band after the departure of Cowboy Copas and Eddy Arnold! LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing.)

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
(Red & green label Rockefeller pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Red Mitchell-Harold Land QuintetHear Ye!!!! Hear Ye!!!! ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good+ ... $34.99
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
(Red & purple label pressing. Cover has a small sticker.)

Dinah ShoreDinah Sings Some Blues With Red ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A surprising return to jazz by Dinah Shore – recorded with backings by the Red Norvo Quintet, and a swinging style that makes us like her more than we'd think! Titles include "Who", "It's Funny To Everyone", "Bye Bye Blues", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Skylark", and "Lucky In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing.)

✨✧ Red CallenderSwingin' Suite ... LP
Crown, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Cover has a split spine & bottom seam.)

✨✧ Red HollowayBurner ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first in a run of excellent mid 60s sides from tenor saxophonist Red Holloway – a very cooking player who's at the height of his powers on this hard-edged set! The date has Red in territory that's slightly more expanded than his dates with Jack McDuff – a quartet mode with John Patton on organ, Eric Gale on guitar, and Paul Serrano on trumpet – all in a tightly arranged sound that's almost equal parts soul jazz and 60s soul instrumental! One track features a slightly different lineup – with Hobart Dotson on trumpet, George Butchka on organ, and Charles Lindsay on guitar – but the groove is quite the same, and features plenty of sweetly funky little numbers! Titles include "Bretheren", "Miss Judie Mae", "Monkey Sho Can Talk", "Crib Theme", and "The Burner". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

✨✧ Red MitchellRejoice! ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant work from one of the most important forces on the LA scene of the 50s – and one of the few early albums Red Mitchell cut under his own name! The album's a live set that has Red playing jazz cello – mostly plucking the instrument like a bass, with the great Jimmy Bond handling the real bass work on the set in the rhythm section! Given Bond's usual ability to make a session groove, the sound here is plenty darn nice throughout – a romping, vamping sort of style that's got a much deeper feel than you might expect from an album of jazz cello. The rest of the group includes Frank Strazzeri on piano, Frank Butler on drums, and Jim Hall on guitar – the last of whom matches notes nicely with Mitchell, almost in a grittier take on west coast jazz counterpoint. Titles include "Jim's Blues", "Rejoice", "Black Eyed Peas", and "Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black & silver label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a mostly split top seam and some surface wear.)

✨✧ Leo ParkerRollin With Leo (red cover) ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those great "never was" Blue Note sessions – recorded in the 60s, but never issued until years later – even though the label had assigned it a cover, title, and catalog number! The album was the last session by baritone sax player Leo Parker – a bop and R&B legend who sadly passed along at the young age of 36, but left a really rich legacy of music. Parker has a way with the baritone that's almost as lean as a tenorist – blowing the horn with sharp, well-placed notes that really make this session cook – somewhere in the R&B-influenced territory of Don Wilkerson's work on Blue Note. Other players include the great Dave Burns on trumpet – always a welcome presence on any date – plus Bill Swindell on tenor sax, Johnny Acea on piano, Al Lucas or Stan Conover on bass, and Wilbert Hogan or Purnell Rice on drums. Tracks include "The Lion's Roar", "Rollin With Leo", "Jumpin Leo", "Talkin The Blues", "Mad Lad Returns", and Illinois Jacquet's "Music Hall Beat". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s DMM pressing.)

✨✧ Red Beans & RiceRed Beans & Rice Featuring Ray Draper ... LP
Epic, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ray Draper was quite an interesting fellow – for a tuba player! Despite the heaviness of his instrument, the guy made some key early recordings with Coltrane and Jackie McLean during the late 50s, recorded some disco albums during the late 70s, and managed to cut this crossover batch of rock and funk tunes at the end of the 60s! Draper plays tuba and trombone, as well as sings on the set – and the group behind him has that dirty funky Fillmore kind of groove. The best moments of the set are the instrumental ones – like the groover "Trilogy", or the long solo on "Let My People Go". Other tracks include "Mess Around", "Gentle Old Sun", "Happiness", "Empty Streets", and "If You Ever Wanna". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has wear, a name in marker, and a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaRed Hot ... LP
Tappan Zee, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great Bob James-directed session from Mongo Santamaria – and a set that takes the fusion-inflected Latin work he was doing on the Vaya label, and blends it with an even tighter, sharper CTI Records vibe! The approach is a bit like that combination of underground Latin and larger label resources that brought great sounds to both Ray Barretto and the Fania All Stars at the time – and the session features excellent CTI help from Bob James on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, and Hubert Laws on flute – the latter of whom got his start working with Mongo in the 60s! Titles include a funky electric remake of "Watermelon Man", plus the cuts "Afro Cuban Fantasy", "Jamaican Sunrise", "Jai Alai", and "Sambita". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has a promo stamp and tracklist sticker.)

✨✧ Abbe LaneLady In Red ... LP
RCA, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of blushing tones here – a classic late 50s RCA set from Abbe Lane, and one that has her working with some very cool backings from the legendary Sid Ramin! Although Abbe's best known for her Latin sides with Tito Puente, Ramin does a really wonderful job too. Sid's approach is a bit quirkier, with some unusual touches in the orchestra that make for plenty of cool musical flourishes underneath Abbe's vocals – unusual backings that Lane matches with unusual phrasings that take this set way past the obvious! Titles include "Breezin Along With The Breeze", "We're Not Children", "You're Driving Me Crazy", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Femininity", "All Of Me", and "No Good To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ 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". LP, Vinyl record album
