Bee Gees/Richard Hewson OrchestraLove Melody ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A very groovy soundtrack to this cool British film – starring a young Jack Wild in his pre-HR Puffenstuff days! The film's kind of a mod kids film – with a number of bright and peppy tunes mixed with others that are either more serious or more jazzy – a blend of rock and more familiar soundtrack instrumentation that really keeps things interesting! The Bee Gees contribute a number of great tracks – like "Melody Fair", "In The Morning", "First Of May", and "To Love Somebody". Even better, though, are the instrumental bits by the Richard Hewson Orchestra – which include "Teacher's Chase", a killer groover with some sweet electric harpsichord and strings, plus the cuts "Working On It Night & Day", "Spicks & Spacks", and "Melody Fair". Peter Knight put the whole thing together, too! CD

Russ Freeman/Richard TwardzikTrio (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1954. Used ... $14.99
One of the rarest albums on the Pacific Jazz label from the 50s – featuring a side apiece of trio material by pianists Russ Freeman and Richard (aka Dick) Twardzik. Both players were known as accompanists of Chet Baker during his sublime mid 50s run at Pacific Jazz – and although Freeman is well-remembered today as the strong player he always was, Twardzik has quickly fallen into obscurity, due to a young death in the mid 50s – and this album features some of the few tracks he recorded as a leader on his own. Freeman plays with Joe Mondragon on bass and Shelly Manne on drums, and Twardzik plays with Carson Smith and Peter Littman – and titles include "Yellow Tango", "Round Midnight", "Abuquerque Social Swim", "Backfield In Motion", "Bock's Tops", and "Yesterday's Gardenias". With 9 bonus tracks! CD

Richard Groove HolmesComin' On Home ... CD
Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1971. Used ... $9.99
A killer from Groove Holmes – one of his rarest albums ever, a one-off session recorded for Blue Note, with a group that includes a young Weldon Irvine! Weldone was a hip up-and-comer at the time – and he not only plays electric piano on the set, but contributes some of the album's best tracks. The mix of electric piano and organ makes for a very unusual sound – one that gets a nice kick from the conga/drum rhythm section, mixed in with electric bass and guitar. Includes the classic "Groovin For Mr G", an early version of Irvine's "Mr Clean", a funky version of "Theme From Love Story", and the cuts "Don't Mess With Me", "This Here", "Wave", and "Down Home Funk".

✨✧ Young-Holt Unlimited/Slide HamptonOh Girl/Somethin' Sanctified ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1961/1973. Used ... $4.99
A strange pairing – but both albums are fantastic! Oh Girl is one of the best albums ever by the Young-Holt funky group. It's got a sweet electric sound that's different than their Brunswick releases, and it features a very dope 70s funky groove that rolls along nicely, and which features more than a few sample tracks. Bobby Lyle and Richard Tee make appearances on the record, and tracks include "Yes We Can Can", "Rubber Lips", "Oh Girl", "Food Stamps", and the massive "Bumpin On Young Street". Something Sanctified is of much earlier vintage, and features some hard-wailing arrangements by the most soulful trombonist we've ever heard! Some of the hardest swingin' stuff ever recorded by a band led by a trombone player. The album features great hardbop material played by a firey octet that includes Hobart Dotson, George Coleman, Larry Ridley, Charles Greenlee, and Richard Williams. Cuts include "El Sino", "Ow", "Milestones", and the stormin' title cut. Great stuff, and two soul jazz classics from 2 different ends of the 60s! CD

✨✧ Richard Groove HolmesNight Glider (French version) ... CD
Musidisc (France), 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet 70s funk from the legendary Groove Holmes – an album that has his funky organ riffing nicely over some tight larger arrangements! The style is really great, and a nice departure from the smaller combo Groove Holmes sound of the 60s – more in keeping with his later Blue Note work, in that the organ's in the lead, grooving soulfully, and the rest of the band vamps and comps behind him with a tight style that's almost in the soundtrack mode! Players include Pretty Purdie on drums, Horace Ott on electric piano, and Seldon Powell on tenor – and Horace Ott wrote two nice originals – "Night Glider" and "Flyjack" – and Groove contributed "Pure Cane Sugar". Other tracks include "Go Away Little Girl", "Young & Foolish", and "One Mint Julep". CD

DreamersThey Sing Like Angels ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $7.99
They may sing like angels, but the Dreamers also bring out plenty of devil as well – given the slinky, soulful sound they hit here on an assortment of important recordings from mid 50s LA! The group later morphed into The Blossoms – who had some great soul records of their own – but here, they're working mostly with the great Richard Berry – either backing him on his own recordings, or having him along on vocals for some of theirs – and helping Berry out on a few other group recordings too. Most cuts often mix Berry's deep voice with the girls' lighter harmonies – in a blend that's really sublime, and which makes for a nice change from some of Richard's brasher work on his own. A young Gloria Jones is in the group – and titles include "Daddy Daddy" by Richard Berry & The Dreamers, "Good Love" by Richard Berry & The Dreamers, "At Last" by The Dreamers with Richard Berry, "More Than You Realize" by The Rollettes, "Do Not Forget" by The Dreamers, "Have Love Will Travel" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs, "Wham Bam" by Googie Rene, "Sad Fool" by The Rollettes, "Wait For Me" by Richard Berry & The Dreamers, "Since You've Been Gone" by The Dreamers, and "The Mess Around" by Jennell Hawkins with Richard Berry & The Lockettes.

Augustus PabloKing Tubbys Meets Rockers Uptown – Deluxe Edition ... CD
Shanachie, 1975. Used ... $9.99
Essential dub material from the legendary King Tubby – a set that's one of the best of the genre during the classic years – and which stands as a true testament to how great the format can be when handled right! The watchword here is simplicity – as the key elements are almost isolated in little sonic chambers, then set to resonate alongside each other – pulled from rhythms from tracks initially done as vocal productions, but reworked through the mixing talents of Erroll "ET" Thompson and Tubby. Players include Bobby Ellis on trumpet, Richard "Dirty Harry" Hall on tenor, and Augustus Pablo on organ and piano, plus a bit of clarinet. Titles include "Keep On Dubbing", "Stop Them Jah", "Young Generation Dub", "Each One Dub", "555 Dub Street", "Braces Tower Dub", "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown", "Corner Crew Dub", "Say So", "Skanking Dub", and "Frozen Dub".

✨✧ Oscar Brown Jr.Movin' On ... CD
32 Jazz, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet bit of funky jazz vocals from Oscar Brown Jr – recorded during his early 70s stay at Atlantic Records, in a style that's very different than his early work! The tracks are all still original numbers by Oscar – penned with that clever bad-rapping approach to the lyrics that always earned him a huge audience in the cognoscenti. The feel is a bit more electric than before, with Richard Tee on electric piano, Cornell Dupree on guitar, and percussion by Ralph MacDonald. A few cuts have female backing vocals, and titles include "Gang Bang", "Feel the Fire", "Dime Away from a Hot Dog", and "Young Man". CD

✨✧ Jaki ByardFreedom Together ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful bit of insanity that properly displays why we think Jaki Byard is one of the greatest overlooked talents of the 60's! Jaki plays here not just on his usual piano – but also electric piano, celeste, vibes, and even a bit of tenor – shifting wonderfully to match the spirit of his changing moods on the set – and working with superb backing from the team of Richard Davis (on both bass and cello) and Alan Dawson (on drums, vibes, and tympani). Junior Parker joins in on the record – singing on 2 tracks on the set plus playing the unusual "lagerphone" – and arrangements are very weird, with a memorable mix of modernist ideas, all handled with the down-to-earth sensibility that made Byard so great. Titles include "Ode To Prez", "Nocturne For Contrabass", "Freedom Together", and a great version of "Young At Heart", cut a few years before Muhal Richard Abrams did his nutty version! CD

✨✧ Joe Henderson5 Original Albums (Our Thing/In N Out/Inner Urge/State Of The Tenor 1 & 2) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s/Mid 80s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
The start of a great run of genius from Joe Henderson – plus a seminal 80s return to form – served up here on five different albums recorded for Blue Note! First up is Our Thing – a classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and Pete La Roca. The track "Pedro's Time" reflects Joe's fascination with Latin-flavored pieces (as evidenced by Joe's previous effort Page One, and his work on Dorham's Una Mas), while pieces like "Teeter Totter", "Our Thing" and "Back Road" play with time and structure in subtle ways. In N Out is a stone killer from the early Blue Note years of tenorist Joe Henderson – a key example of why the label had so much faith in him right from the start, and why Henderson's horn was quite different than so many other players of the 60s! Echoes of "new thing" modes lie in the background of the record, but upfront things have a sharp 60s Blue Note punch – thanks in part to a great lineup that also includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Henderson's tone is rough and young – but in a great way, one that's perfect for the exploratory nature of his original tunes on the set, and which matches the mood of Dorham's compositions as well. Tracks include "In N Out", "Short Story", "Brown's Town", and "Punjab". Inner Urge is a fantastic session of 60s "new thing" jazz – and one of our favorite early records by Joe Henderson! The album features some incredibly hard playing from Joe – with a very dark edge to his solos that's nicely offset by McCoy Tyner's lyrical piano, and the supple rhythms of Bob Cranshaw and Elvin Jones. It's hard to look at the lineup and not feel this group is approaching the tunes in a very post-Coltrane mode, but Henderson's voice on the tenor is completely singular, and puts that short-sighted theory to rest with his first bold note of the session. The album features 5 numbers in all – 3 originals showcasing Henderson's strong songwriting "Inner Urge", "Isotope" and "El Barrio" – plus the great Duke Pearson ballad "You Know I Care" and the standard "Night & Day". Last up are the two live Village Vanguard albums State Of The Tenor Vols 1 & 2 – a real moment of genius for Joe Henderson from the 80s – a spare trio session, recorded live at the Village Vanguard, in a mode that recalls Sonny Rollins classic sets there for Blue Note! And while Sonny often performed heavily in a trio setting, unfettered by chords in the rhythm section – this is a unique date for Joe, and he sounds brilliant throughout! Ron Carter and Al Foster provide a crisp but elastic foundation for Henderson's burnished melodies and solos in a very spacious setting. Titles include"The Bead Game", "Soulville", "Portrait", "Beatrice", "Friday The Thirteenth", "Happy Reunion", "Loose Change", "Ask Me Now" and "Isotope". CD

✨✧ Young-Holt UnlimitedBorn Again/Mellow Dreamin' ... CD
Water/Atlantic, 1970/1971. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant later work from the Young Holt Unlimited combo – 2 albums that really stand apart from the rest of their recordings! Born Again is a sophisticated batch of jazzy tracks that really opens the group's style up – going way way past the stock soul of some of their Brunswick recordings. The band's clearly taken on a more spiritual bent for this one – as you can probably guess from the Afro-madonna cover – and the music ranges from electric funk to trippier more spiritual numbers. The record features hip keyboards by Ken Chaney, Marylean Holt, and a young Bobby Lyle. Cash McCall plays guitar on a great reading of Richard Evans "Hot Pants" – and other tracks include "Luv Bugg", "Wah Wah Man", and "Save The Day". Mellow Dreamin is one of the group's wildest and most beautiful LPs – really pushing the sound to a freer-thinking style of soul with a myriad of interesting rhythms, strange instrumentation, and uncanny arrangements! The best proof of this is their fantastic take on "Midnight Cowboy" from the set – done with an insane breakdown, funky piano, and this cool trumpet line playing counterpoint to the piano as the track goes on! The whole set's great, though, and features some great originals by piano player Ken Chaney, like "The Creeper" and "Trippin" – plus the cuts "Mellow Dreamin", "The Devil Made Me Do Dat", and "Black & White".

Fairport ConventionWho Knows Where The Time Goes – The Essential Fairport Convention (3CD set) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
The genius of Fairport Convention knows no bounds – as the group were an ever-vibrant, ever-creative ensemble – often changing membership as much as they experimented with new styles – in a fantastic range that's very well captured on this 3CD set! Fairport are way more than the folk rock outfit that they're most easily identified as – because although the group certainly draws a lot from folk traditions, both ancient and modern, they bring so much more to their music as well – including especially compelling use of electric guitar and bass (the former on many of these tracks by the young Richard Thompson) – and transcendent vocals from Sandy Denny that really helps take the music to a new dimension. The set offers about a decade's worth of recordings by the group – 52 tracks in all – including some more unusual moments, and even some rarer tracks too – a great selection of titles that includes "Sir Patrick Spens", "Fotheringay", "Suzanne", "Chelsea Morning", "Ballad Of Easy Rider", "Quiet Joys Of Brotherhood", "Matty Groves", "Genesis Hall", "The Plainsman", "The Hens March Through The Midden & The Four Poster Bed", "Cropredy Capers", "When First Into This Country", "Farewell Farewell", "Angles Brown", "The Last Waltz", "John Lee", "Breakfast In Mayfair", "Sailor's Alphabet", and "Banks Of The Sweet Primroses".

Yusef LateefLive At Pep's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Impulse, 1964. Used ... $11.99
One of Yusef Lateef's most fantastic albums, and one that grooves in a way that few of his other albums do! The session is an amazing live set from 1964, recorded at Pep's Nightclub in Philly, and it features some amazing playing by a young Mike Nock on piano and the brilliant Richard Williams on trumpet. The sound is a great mix of Lateef's weird reeds with a rolling soul jazz backing that adds a lot to the mix. This CD adds 3 long extra cuts to the original release – and titles include "The Magnolia Triangle", "Sister Mamie", "Number 7", "Gee Sam Gee", "Oscarlypso", "The Weaver", and "Slippin' & Slidin'". Great stuff! CD

Pharoah SandersTauhid/Jewels Of Thought ... CD
Impulse (Germany), 1967/1969. New Copy ... $8.99
Two Pharoah Sanders classics – back to back on a single CD! Tauhid is one of the first moments of genius from a young Pharoah Sanders – a set that builds on the energy of John Coltrane's Love Supreme generation – but takes it in a much more expansive direction! The album's got a sense of majesty that's years ahead of its time – righteous, positive, spiritual jazz that flows out with a timeless power, and a quality that almost out-Coltrane's Coltrane! All tracks are long, expressive, and freely flowing – building with a very organic sense of energy – totally free from any gimmicks or cliche. Players include Dave Burrell on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Sharrock on guitar – and Pharoah plays alto, tenor, and piccolo – and even vocalizes a bit. The album begins with the amazing "Upper & Lower Egypt" – which is a perfect illustration of the two sides of Pharoah's genius – free/out & spiritual/modal – and other titles include "Japan", and "Capricorn Rising". Jewels Of Thought is a wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! CD

✨✧ Sun RaSun Song (aka Jazz By Sun Ra) ... CD
Transition/Delmark, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records! Even at this early point, Ra had a sound unlike any of his contemporaries – large group and modern, but not in a way that showed any similarities to work going on in New York or LA – a voice that was all his own, and already quite boldly stated, even in these early years! The format might be somewhat familiar – an ensemble with horns and rhythm – but the overall execution really starts to open up as the album moves on – with odd phrasings, timings, and unusual moments that live up to all the promise you might expect from Ra. Even Mingus and some of his better-known contemporaries weren't heading in these directions in the mid 50s – and the record is a proud showcase of the freedoms that players were often accorded in the less-trafficked Chicago scene of the time. Horns include Art Hoyle & Dave Young on trumpets, John Gilmore on tenor sax, Pat Patrick on baritone, Julian Priester on trombone, and James Scales on alto sax – and rhythm includes Jim Herndon on tympani, Robert Barry on drums, Wilbur Green on electric bass, and a young Richard Evans on acoustic bass! Titles include "Brainville", "Call For All Demons", "Transition", "Lullaby For Realville", "Street Named Hell", "New Horizons", "Fall Off The Long", "Possession", and "Future". CD

✨✧ Tony WilliamsLife Time ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The pinnacle of Blue Note's "new thing" era! This amazing album was led by drummer Tony Williams (then just a wee lad, playing with Miles Davis, in his legendary 60s quintet) – but it's more of a "roundtable" session that features equal contributions by some of Blue Note's best avant garde players from the time, all of them young firey geniuses like Williams. The configurations of the players change drastically from track to track – and some feature Sam Rivers, Richard Davis, and Gary Peacock playing in a 2-bass and tenor lineup with Williams; others feature Bobby Hutcherson and Herbie Hancock playing heavily percussive vibes and piano solos next to Williams' assorted percussion playing; and one track doesn't even feature Williams at all, but has Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter in a beautifully moody bass and piano duet! The record is a treasure – and it's a landmark recording that's probably one of the greatest that Blue Note (or any other label) released during the 60s! Titles include "Barb's Song to The Wizard", "Memory", and "Two Pieces Of One: Red & Green". CD

✨✧ Grant GreenRetrospective 1961 to 1966 (4 CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1960s. Used 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful 4 disc box set documenting one of our favorite jazz guitarist's work for one of our favorite jazz labels. We initially got hip to Grant Green on his amazing funky jazz sides, but as we made our way back through his recording career, we discovered a wealth of sublime material. The tracks collected here are pulled from over 30 albums, and span a wide section of the post bop spectrum, with two discs worth focusing on his work in organ combos, the second on quartet settings, like the Grant Green/Sonny Clark set on Mosaic and the last his work on hard bop sides. As you might imagine, the list of sidemen's pretty exhaustive, and so is the track lising, but rest assured there's plenty of solid material here, like "Baby's Minor Lope" off Grant's First Stand, "Swingin At Sugar Ray's" off Baby Face Willette's Face To Face, "Bop Bop Bing Bash" off George Braith's Soul Stream, "Let 'Em Roll" off John Patton's Let 'Em Roll, "Talkin' Bout JC" off Talkin' Bout, "Plaza Del Toros" off Larry Young's "Into Somethin", "Round Midnight" off Green Street, "It Ain't Necessarily So" off Nigeria, "Uh Huh" off Hank Mobley's Workout, "Blues For Charlie" off Ike Quebec's Blue & Sentimental and "A Tune For Richard" off Horace Parlan's Happy Frame Of Mind, plus many, many more.

✨✧ Brother AhhDivine Music (Sea/Meditation/Searching) (3CD set) ... CD
Manufactured, 1978/1981/1985. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Three never-issued albums from Brother Ah – the enigmatic musician who may be known best for his work with Sun Ra, and his rare album on Strata East! Both of those moments date from earlier years, though – and past that time, Brother Ah was still working strongly on some amazing musical ideas of his own – work that includes the three albums presented in this package, which together really mark a shift for both Ah and some of his spiritual jazz contemporaries as the 70s moved on! The set begins with the beautiful set The Sea – recorded in 1978, with a long-flowing sound that's quite hypnotic, and very much in the spiritual territory of post-Coltrane material – including work by Trane's wife Alice. Brother Ah plays flute, in these fantastic lines that spin out slowly and echo strongly – amidst a mix of percussion, violin, mbira, bass, and drums – often used in ways that build beautifully, and which provide a great introduction to both the sung and spoken passages – presented by Abena Walker, Jeanean Gibbs, and Nataska Hassan Youssef. Titles include "Nuba", "Far Away", "The Village Drum", "Visoins", and "Africa We Are Your Children". Meditation is from a few years later, and has a different makeup – a sound that's much more spare overall, and which just features Brother Ah on flute, zither, and "nature sounds" – with help from Cleo Jomo Faulks on mbira and gong! The tunes have an earthier feel than you might guess from the album's title – still somewhat meditative, but also more open to the vibes of nature than the space of the studio – with moments that feel more more like the organic sounds of the young Moondog, or maybe some of Alice Coltrane's more home-made moments. Titles include "Stillness", "Spirit World", "Close Your Eyes & See", and "Song Of The Unseen". Last up is Searching – a record from 1985 that maybe moves the spiritual agenda from the political to the personal – that shift towards more interior solutions that some musicians took in the 80s, especially as funding for some kinds of spiritual jazz albums fell by the wayside, and some artists had to adapt to the new age underground. Yet although that shift might be in place here, Brother Ah is still as righteous as ever – just equipped with a slightly different voice – as he works alongside some electronics and percussion from Richard Ashman, and blows trumpet and a variety of flutes, while also handling percussion and harmonica in very spacious ways. The record is more about extended sound textures than individual instrumentation – and titles include "I Am", "Going Within", "Inner Voice", and "Know Thyself". First time release for all three records – presented in a really great package! CD

An excellent hardbop session from the glory days of the Savoy label – easily one of the label's key 50s classics! Drummer Kenny Clarke's at the front of the group – but all players are great, and the set features work by Cannonball Adderley on alto, Jerome Richardson on tenor, Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nat Adderley on cornet, Hank Jones or Horace Silver on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass. The Adderley brothers sound especially great – and the young Cannonball has a quality here that's more soulful and sharp-edged than his work on Mercury – much more in a Prestige blowing session style!

Gil EvansSvengali ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1973. Used ... $7.99
A great example of the way that Gil Evans really opened up his groove in the 70s – moving here way way past the cool jazz and third stream of earlier years – into a soulful style that's far groovier than might be expected! Part of the strength of the set is because of the players – as Gil's working with a group of younger soul jazz and spiritual soloists that include Ted Dunbar, Billy Harper, and Hannibal Marvin Peterson – as well as the older soul modernist Richard Williams. But there's also some other specifically Evans-like touches to the record that stand out – like Gil's stark notes on acoustic piano and his lighter work on the electric keys – plus a bit of inventive synthesizer from David Horowitz, who makes a few tracks really crackle with energy. Tracks include "Zee Zee", "Blues In Orbit", "Cry Of Hunger", and "Thoroughbred" – the latter two of which are lovely compositions by Billy Harper! CD

A second volume of Duke Ellington material from Kenny Burrell – and like the first, an extremely fresh look at the tunes – given the way things change up throughout the sessions! The presentation here is nicely varied – not just a big band take on the Duke, nor some small combo musings – but instead a mixture of both, all with Burrell's guitar at the center, but also moving the spotlight to a host of other players along the way – including trombonist Quentin Jackson, trumpeters Snooky Young and Thad Jones, organist Jimmy Smith, and tenorists Joe Henderson and Jerome Richardson – all of whom add some surprisingly soulful currents to the set. Titles include "Jeep Is Jumpin", "Solitude", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Azure", "Just Squeeze Me", "Come Sunday", "Prelude To A Kiss", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", and "Orson". CD
