Reuben WilsonBlue Breakbeats ... CD
Blue Note, Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
Excellent early work by organist Reuben Wilson – recorded for Blue Note, with a tight jazz funk vibe! Reuben Wilson's original career as an organist had a brief explosive flourish that ran from the end of the 60s to the middle of the 70s – but during that time, he recorded a nice batch of tasty jazz funk records, a number of which are sampled in this collection of breakbeat-oriented tracks from his Blue Note years. Titles on the album include "Hot Rod", "Orange Peel", "Ronnie's Bonnie", "Love Bug", and "Bus Ride". CD

Reuben WilsonBlue Mode ... CD
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $11.99
Heavy funk from the mighty Reuben Wilson – one of his first few albums for Blue Note, and a solid soulful groover that's right up there with Lou Donaldson's work for the label at the time! Tracks are nice and long, and pretty open – often with that kicking drum sound at the bottom that you'd normally associate with Idris Muhammad, but which is handled here by Tommy Derrick on drums. Melvin Sparks plays some mighty mean guitar – in that great lean early style of his – and the group's completed by John Manning on tenor, a player we don't know at all – but whose lines here are a great counterpart to Wilson's heavy Hammond! Titles include "Orange Peel", "Blue Mode", "Bambu", "Knock On Wood", "Twenty Five Miles", and "Bus Ride". CD

Reuben WilsonCisco Kid ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Very Good+ ... $8.99
One of the best 70s albums by this funky organ player – quite different than his work for Blue Note, with a messier funkier edge that's very nice! Reuben Wilson's working with an all-hip lineup, with players who include Melvin Sparks on guitar, Garnett Brown on trombone, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Mickey Roker on drums, and Ray Amando on conga. The groove has a nicely choppy approach to rhythm, which you'll hear on the nice remake of "Cisco Kid", a big sample hit over the years – plus the sweet originals "Groove Grease" and "Snaps", both of which are hard and funky! The album's also got a great cover of "Superfly" – and other tracks that include "The Look Of Love", "We've Only Just Begun", and "Last Tango In Paris". LP, Vinyl record album

Reuben WilsonGroovy Situation ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good ... $14.99
Reuben Wilson changes up the groove from his previous Blue Note sets – and the result is one of his greatest albums to date! This smoking little set has an edge that you really wouldn't expect – rhythms that move past the simple Blue Funk mode – into a more complicated style of funky jazz that really has Reuben hitting the Hammond in a fresh new way – of the sort he'd explore on his later albums for the Groove Merchant label. The group's a simple quartet – with the unusual lineup of Earl Turbington on alto, Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Harold White on drums – but the sound is a lot fuller and richer, thanks to a free-spirited approach to the rhythms of the tunes. And even though a number of the cuts on the set are covers of 60s soul tracks – like "A Groovy Situation", "Happy Together", and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" – they come off quite differently in Reuben's hands – and sit nicely next to strong original tracks like "Sweet Tooth" and "While The World Lies Waiting". A sweet little funky gem! LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing. Cover has splitting on the top seam & light wear.)

Reuben Wilson & The Cost Of LivingGot To Get Your Own ... CD
Cadet/Dusty Groove, 1975. Used ... $11.99
Monster funk from Hammond hero Reuben Wilson – an album of hard-burning, bad-walking tunes that are a fair bit different than most of his other work! Although Wilson recorded some pretty traditional organ jazz for the Blue Note and Groove Merchant labels, this album has him working with his "Cost Of Living" group – a combo who only recorded this one album, and which includes Richard Tee on keyboards, Bad Bascomb on bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and both Houston Person and Pee Wee Ellis on tenor sax! Most cuts have some sort of vocals – sung by either Sammy Turner or Kenny Williams, both of whom really fit the badass spirit of the record, and bring in a nice range of deeper themes from the 70s. There's almost a blacksploitation funk feel to the record at times, although the set's also got more of a soul album focus too – a rare move for Reuben, but one that's made the album a favorite for years! Tracks include the rare groove classics "Got To Get Your Own" and "Tight Money" – plus "Together", "Stoned Out Of My Mind", "What The People Gon Say", "Back Rub", and "In The Booth In The Back In The Corner In The Dark".

✨✧ Reuben WilsonLove Bug ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Reuben Wilson – one of the last great organ players to emerge from the 60s Hammond scene, and one of the hardest hitting cats at Blue Note during the funk years of the label! The album's a tight one all the way through – performed with a combo that has Idris Muhammad playing some nice snapping drums, plus Grant Green on guitar, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and George Coleman on bass. Includes the funky cuts "Hot Rod" and "Love Bug", plus other groovers like "Back Out" and "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBlue Funk ... CD
Blue Note, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
More of what you buy Blue Note for – funky jazz tunes with a kick! This set pulls together 13 cuts from the label's classic late 60s/early 70s years – a time that was once lost to the sands of time, thanks to snobbery against use of electric instrumentation on the label, but which is now being rediscovered again, thanks to hip hoppers, the acid jazz crowd, and groovers worldwide! This great package features plenty of rare numbers that best sum up the funky side of Blue Note – including "Who Dun It" by Blue Mitchell, "Down Home Funk" by Groove Holmes, "Tic Tac Toe" by Candido, "Cissy Strut" by John Patton, "Ease Back" by Grant Green, "Bambu" by Reuben Wilson, "Family Affair" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Don't Knock My Love" by Ronnie Foster, "I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothin" by Grant Green, "Cantaloupe Woman" by Grant Green, "If There's A Hell Below" by Lou Donaldson, and "Hunk O Funk" by Jack McDuff.

VariousUntinted – Sources For Madlib's Shades Of Blue (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $33.99
One of the hippest Blue Note collections ever – 12 tracks used as the blueprint for Madlib's Shades Of Blue project – a mixture of funky jazz and killer 60s hardbop numbers! Some of the tracks are core Blue Note numbers, but others are much more left-of-center – and together, the package makes for a wonderful batch of jazzy grooves – cuts that slide easily from electric to acoustic, always grooving with a super-dope sort of style! Titles include "The Look Of Slim" by Gene Harris & The Three Sounds, "Illusion" by Andrew Hill, "Distant Land" by Donald Byrd, "Mystic Brew" by Ronnie Foster, "Stormy" by Reuben Wilson, "Please Set Me At Ease" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Peace" by Horace Silver, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, "Montara" by Bobby Hutcherson, and "Stepping Into Tomorrow" by Donald Byrd.
