Oscar Peterson, Roy Eldridge, Sonny Stitt & OthersOscar Peterson Trio At Newport ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... $3.99
The Oscar Peterson trio of the 50s – both by itself, and augmented by some great horn work too – all recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957! Side one of the album features the group alone – Oscar on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Ray Brown on bass – all in that perfectly fluid drumless groove the group handled so greatly at the time – leaping and soaring, always with a rhythmic pulse that was all their own. Side two features the group expanded to a sextet – drummer Jo Jones added in for rhythm, plus Roy Eldridge on trumpet and Sonny Stitt on both alto and tenor sax. These tracks have a slightly looser feel – more in some of the Verve studio jam modes, with some nice room for solos from the horn players! Titles include "Will You Still be Mine", "Joy Spring", "Gal In Calico", "52nd Street Theme", "Monitor Blues", "Willow Weep For Me", "Autumn In New York", and "Roy's Son". CD

VariousGlen Brown – Dubble Attack – The Original Pantomine Dee Jay Collection 1972 to 1974 ... CD
Greensleeves, Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
Some of the sharpest dee jay work you'll ever hear from the Jamaican scene of the early 70s – cutting edge MCs from Kingston, all set to massive rhythms from Glen Browns Pantomine label – on tracks that were originally issued in small runs of a few hundred copies! Yet that small circulation doesn't stand as any sort of commentary on the quality of the music – and instead, it reflects the continual movement forward of the Pantomine label – an imprint that was especially tuned to the sounds of the streets and the clubs, which it helped build through the contributions of the voices on these cuts! The rhythms are wonderfully heavy – and the MCs burst out proudly over the top, sometimes with a nice touch of echo – on cuts that include "Dubble Attack" by Big Youth, "Number One In The World" by U Roy, "Rasta On A Sunday" by I Roy, "The Meaning Of One" by Prince Jazzbo, "This Year Fe Rebels" by Godsons, "Father's Call" by Dean Beckford, "Daughter A Whole Lot Of Sugar Down Deh" by Berry Prince Hammer Simpson, and "Butter & Bread" by Lloyd Young.

✨✧ Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds that echo back to his earlier years on Atlantic! Yet despite the jazz setting, there's still a nice dose of funk in the mix too – a bit like the vibe that Ayers hit on his Virgo Red album, but leaner too – given that the group's only a quartet. The smaller lineup really allows Roy a lot of space to solo strongly on vibes – and he's also joined by the great Harry Whitaker on electric piano, always a treat in a setting like this. The album features an extended early version of "Move To Groove", plus "In A Silent Way", "Your Cup Of Tea", and "Daddy Bug". Plus, the CD includes some great bonus cuts – like "Thoughts", "He Gives Us All His Love", and "Sketches in Red, Yellow, Brown, Black, and White". CD

Polydor, Late 70s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a throwaway disco compilation, this is a seriously heavy batch of tracks that's way better selected than any other major label compilation from the time. Nearly every one of these cuts is a great rare groover – and titles include "Jungle Fever" by Chakachas, "Running Away" by Roy Ayers, "Spanish Hustle" by Fatback Band, "Crystal World" by Crystal Grass, "Never Can Say Goodbye" and "Casanova Brown" by Gloria Gaynor, "Moonlight Lovin/Menage A Troi" by Isaac Hayes, "Dance Little Dreamer" and "Risky Changes" by Bionic Boogie, "Dr Doo Wah" by The Kongas, "I Need You You Need Me" by Joe Simon, "Crusader" by Trax and "Got To Have Lovin" by Don Ray.

✨✧ Herb EllisNothing But The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1957. Used ... $6.99
The title's a bit of a shocker – in that that we don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but it's pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey on a set of bluesy tunes that feature his guitar in the lead, working through some magical solos that are far more expressive than on some of his work on other albums from the time. The record's a genuine surprise, and a real lost Verve treasure – as Ellis steps out with a great tone and some nice rootsy solos on tracks that include "Patti Cake", "Blues For Junior", "Blues For Janet", "Pap's Blues", and "Tin Roof Blues".

Ella Fitzgerald & Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic – The Ella Fitzgerald Set ... CD
Verve, 1949/1954. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Ella Fitzgerald at the height of her powers – heard here on a set of Jazz At The Philharmonic recordings that feature the singer really stretching out in a small group setting! The tracks are all live, and not only feature Fitzgerald charming the crowd with her presence, but also effortlessly hitting the kind of perfect phrasing and timing she always does so well in the studio – maybe even more striking here, given the occasional unbridled energy of the audience. Players include Hank Jones on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich or JC Heard on drums – and the recordings also feature some contributions from Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Charlie Parker on alto, and Lester Young and Flip Phillips on tenor. Tracks come from 1949, 1953, and 1954 JATP performances – and titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Hernando's Hideaway", "Later", "Perdido", "Somebody Loves Me", "Robbin's Nest", "A New Shade Of Blues", "Old Mother Hubbard", "Flying Home", "Oh Lady Be Good", "How High The Moon", "Why Don't You Do Right", and "Bill".

✨✧ Derrick Harriott & OthersDerrick Harriott – Reggae, Funk, & Soul 1969 To 1975 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The title certainly gets it right – as Derrick Harriott serves up a wonderful mix of sounds that owes plenty to American funk and soul of the early 70s – some cool Kingston covers of famous US tunes, and some other originals that are equally groovy overall! The set's one of the best that we've ever heard from the Dub Store label – and almost has a Soul Jazz level of track selection – really wonderful work that either features Derrick in the lead, or working with some hip contemporaries, in a groove that's totally great – neither straight reggae, but also quite far from more familiar funk and soul too. Titles include "Black Moses" by The Preacher, "Tougher Than Tough" by I Roy, "Brown Baby" by Derrick Harriott, "Hell Below" by Crystal Generation, "Going Back Home" by The Chosen Few, "Psychedelic Train" by Derrick Harriott, "Slippery" by Karl Bryan & The Crystalites, "Home Sweet Home" by Bongo Herman & Les, "Rescue The Children" by Junior Murvin, "Phoenix" by Noel Brown, "People Make The World Go Round" by The Chosen Few, and "Message From A Black Man" by Derrick Harriott.

✨✧ John Lee Hooker/Sticks McGheeHighway Of The Blues ... LP
Audio Lab, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Rare King Records material from these two postwar blues greats – each of whom get a single side of the record! Sticks McGhee really shines on side one – with that playful, jazzy approach to blues that he used on his late 40s recordings for Atlantic – almost somewhere in the territory of Louis Jordan, especially given Sticks' sense of wit – but served up in more of an R&B mode, with similar styles to Roy Brown's King material of the early 50s. Titles include "Head Happy With Wine", "Get Your Mind Out Of The Gutter", "Jungle Juice", "Whiskey Women & Loaded Dice", and "Sad Bad Glad". John Lee Hooker is in a much rootsier mode on side two – recorded in a rough-edged style that's almost back to the delta, save for the use of electricity on the guitar! The spare setting really unlocks Hooker's power – and titles include "Nightmare Blues", "Devil's Jump", "Thinking Blues", "Late Last Night", and "Moaning Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Amos MilburnLet's Have A Party! – The Aladdin Recordings ... CD
Aladdin/Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
One of the greatest singers of the postwar R&B era – the amazing Amos Milburn, arguably a huge influence on later rock and soul too! Like a few other key contemporaries – such as Wynonie Harris and Roy Brown – Milburn had a great way of hitting topics that were honest, open, and everyday – tales of boozing and loving delivered with very down to earth lyrics, and a good bit of wit as well. Many tunes feature some great piano lines sewn in nicely alongside the vocals – triplets that really rock the tunes nicely, although often in a gentle sort of way. Titles include "I'm Gonna Tell My Mama", "Long Long Day", "Thinkin & Drinkin", "I'm Still A Fool For You", "One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer", "Tears Tears Tears", "Sax Shack Boogie", "I Love You Anyway", "Ain't Nothing Shaking", "Just One More Drink", "Let Me Go Home Whiskey", "Greyhound", and "Soft Pillow". 29 tracks in all!

Michal UrbaniakEcstasy ... CD
Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About January 25, 2017
One of the most soul-based albums in Michal Urbaniak's catalog – a session originally done with TK records during the height of their dancefloor years, fitted up with some really great clubby grooves! The sound here is a mix of fusion and soul – done in a way that still gives Urbaniak plenty of room to solo on violin, sax, and keys – but which also sets up a warmer groove overall and really lets the vocals come center stage. Urszula Dudziak sings on about half the tracks – and other vocals are by Kenyatta and Calvin Brown – and the jazzy inflections of the tune really set this apart from lots of the other Miami disco on Marlin, giving the record a much deeper feel overall, and a quality that's held up very nicely through the years! Dark edges mix with warmer moments nicely, almost in a Roy Ayers way – and titles include "A Day In The Park", "Just A Funky Feeling", "Body Rub", "Ecstasy", "Creation", and "Want's Ta Make You Feel Good".

Prestige/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Spiritual sounds from the source – a host of incredible tracks from a time when jazz was really opening up into new dimensions – as players stepped forward in a wave of strong post-Coltrane energy to really push the music into the skies! The music here can be seen as a blueprint for generations to come – styles that are now getting new fame in the hands of Kamasi Washington and some of his contemporaries, but which flowered first in recordings like these – pulled from the early 70s vaults of Prestige, Milestone, and Muse Records – and brought together here in a really wonderful collection! Tracks are all nice and long, and the set showcases an older generation of jazz musicians really flowering at the time – balanced perfectly between a sense of freedom and a spiritual soul – on titles that include "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz NTU Troop, "Let Us Go To Higher Heights" by Carlos Garnett, "The Almoravid" by Joe Chambers, "Brown Eyes" by Charles Earland, "Warriors Of Peace" by Azar Lawrence, "Aftermath" by Oliver Nelson, "Josie Black" by Hampton Hawes, "Let It Take Your Mind" by Bayete Umbra Zindiko, "Fire" by Joe Henderson and Alice Coltrane, and "The Free Slave" by Roy Brooks.

The classic sound of New Orleans soul never gets old – and the strength of the 20 tracks on this sampler are a good testament to that! The set brings together mostly numbers recorded for the Imperial label during the 50s – chunky little groovers that show off the unique Crescent City groove, with lots of clunky rhythms and piano triplets dancing about.

Verve, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little session that builds on the strength of Johnny Hodges' small group 50s sessions for Verve – and which lets Duke Ellington in on some of the action! The format is nicely stripped-down throughout – featuring Hodges in sextet and septet formation with players that include Ben Webster, Roy Eldridge, Les Spann, Lawrence Brown, and Jo Jones. And while Duke's actually only on piano on 3 tracks on the album (Billy Strayhorn handles keys on the other 6), the session's still a great example of small combo Ellingtonia at its best! Titles include "Ruint", "Stompy Jones", "Big Shoe", "Going Up", "Just A Memory", and "You Need to Rock". CD

Funky, tight reggae jams from the earlier part of his career, this set is filled with many classics: "People Funny Boy", "French Connection", "Bucky Skank", "White Belly Rat" and "Bush Weed" by Lee Scratch Perry, "Tighten Up" by The Untouchables,"Return Of Django","Dollar In The Teeth", "Enter The Dragon" and "Live Injection" by The Upsetters, "Come Into My Parlour" and "Jump And Rale" by The Bleechers, "Shocks Of Mighty" by Dave Barker, "Duppy Conqueror", "Keep On Skanking" and "Small Axe" by Bob Marley And The Wailers, "A Place Called Africa", "Curly Locks" and " Beat Down Babylon" by Junior Byles, "Africa Stand " by Dennis Alcapone, "Don't Cross The Nation" by Little Roy, "Walking The Streets" by The Hurricanes, "Better Days" by Carlton & The Shoes, "My Girl" by Busty Brown, "Round And Round" by The Melodians, "Just One Look" by Hortense Ellis, "Space Flight" by I.

5 RoyalesIt's Hard But It's Fair – The King Hits & Rarities ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
An excellent collection of work by The 5 Royales – a 50s vocal group, but one who had a huge impact on soul music in the 60s! The Royales worked in a style that was harder-hitting and a bit more focused than some of their contemporaries – often using the voices in a very rhythmic way that really set the stage for the vocal group sound of the 60s. James Brown was one of a number of artists who claimed huge inspiration from the group – and that feeling is supported strongly in the liner notes by Steve Cropper, Billy Vera, and compiler Tony Rounce – who selected a great batch of 26 tunes that represent the best of the group's work for the King label! Titles include the original version of "Think", plus "Say It", "I Ain't Getting Caught", "Do Unto You", "Behave Yourself", "My Wants For Love", "It Hurts Inside", "Why", "I'm With You", "Dedicated To The One I Love", "Don't Give No More Than You Can Take", "The Slummer The Slum", and "Women About To Make Me Go Crazy".

✨✧ Sonny CrissSaturday Morning (with bonus track) ... CD
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
A beautiful album from the wonderful reedman Sonny Criss – one of the first albums in his brief stretch of return to recording in the late 70s – and quite possibly the best! Criss has a sound that's completely amazing, right from the start – every bit as sharp toned as in his early years on Imperial, and as full of all the imagination as on his sides for Prestige – but with much deeper feeling, too – this sense of pain and life that makes even the simplest notes extremely powerful – blowing us away like few others players could do with such understated brilliance. The whole thing's perfect – maybe even more so than the Prestige recordings – and backing is by Barry Harris on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Lenny McBrowne on drums – a really wonderful group! Titles include the amazing "Saturday Morning" – a track that will really make you fall in love with Sonny all over again – plus "Angel Eyes", "Tin Tin Deo", "Jeannie's Knees", "My Heart Stood Still", and "Until The Real Thing Comes Along". Also includes the bonus track "Confusion". CD

Lloyd Jammy James showcases his right to the throne established by King Tubby, his mentor, on this massive collection of the sound of modern reggae that he pioneered in the early 80s. 20 groundbreaking numbers that ushered in the digital age of reggae that still dominates the Jamaican record industry, classics in every sense of the word all the way through!

Xanadu All Stars (Al Cohn, Billy Mitchell, etc)Night Flight To Dakar/Xanadu In Africa ... CD
Xanadu, 1980. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 19.99
An excellent set of recordings from a unique moment for the Xanadu Records label – an imprint that was carrying the torch of the Prestige label style well into the 70s – also run by that label's old head, Don Schlitten! The tracks here were all recorded live in Dakar – by a tight quintet that features some of the best Xanadu players at the time – both Al Cohn and Billy Mitchell on tenor, plus Dolo Coker on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Frank Butler on drums. Mitchell is especially wonderful – an excellent soloist who was often lost in larger groups throughout his career, but who really got the chance to shine in the bigger, more open space of the small group sides. Both he and Cohn blow at some of their best levels for the performances – and titles include "Night Flight To Dakar", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying", "Blues Up & Down", "Sweet Senegelese Brown", "Robbins Nest", "Blues In The Closet", "Easy Living", and "The King".

VariousAnd This Is Me – Britain's Finest Thespians Sing ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A very cool collection of tracks from voices you might know more for their work on the screen – an array of British talents from the postwar years who were mostly known for their comedic performances in film and on TV! The word "thespians" is used here with a bit of wit – as most of these singers are ones from the lower-brow side of British entertainment – early situation comedies, Carry On films, and outlets like that – but given a really beautiful array of arrangements here, which help deliver some surprisingly great vocal performances! Some of these numbers are novelty tunes, others are a bit more straight – but overall, there's a nice sense of jazz and zing to the material – the kind of punch you'd expect if you saw their performances in a movie. Titles include "Postman's Knock" by Spike Milligan, "Alone Together" by Bernard Bresslaw, "Send For Me" by Terry Thomas, "It Had Better Be A Wonderful Life" by Barbara Windsor & Harry Fowler, "Three Nice Mice" by Max Bygraves, "I Like It" by Mike & Bernie Winters, "What About Me" by Bernard Cribbins, "Harry Brown" by Ian McShane, "Lonely For A Girl" by Oliver Reed, "We Go Together" by Eric Sykes & Hattie Jacques, and "Double Bunk" by Sid James & Liz Fraser.

Each track features a different group, and some players overlap here and there – creating a sense of unity amongst the performances – which have a great old school mix of hardbop and more lyrical moments – impeccably recorded in the style of the Something Cool label! Titles include "Scent Of Spring" and "Choro Pro Ze", performed by a group with Yuu Uesugi on trombone, Mike Zachernuk on trumpet, and Yuko Sakuma on piano; "Amembow" by the trio of pianist Hiroyuki Takubo; "Ballad" by pianist Ami Ogaeri; "Brown's Mood" and "Lined With A Groove" by the trio of bassist Yoshimasa Otsuka; and "The Red Bow Tie Cat" by the group of trombonist Itsumi Komano.

Atlantic/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer female soul from Atlantic Records – and a tasty set that pushes way past the big hits! There's some excellent work here from some of the lesser-remembered singers on the label from the 60s, or other singers who recorded more famously elsewhere for other labels – and there's also some nice obscure numbers from some of Atlantic's bigger acts, tracks that you might have missed or which have never been issued before. There's a total of 25 tracks that includes "But I Love Him" by Doris Troy, "It's Nice To Know" and "That Hurts" by Rozetta Johnson, "My Man, He's A Lovin Man" by Betty Lavette, "Me & My Baby" by Mary Wells, "Unloved Unwanted Me" by Barbara Lynn, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Sweet Inspirations, "I'm Blue (The Gong Gong Song)" by The Ikettes, "Here He Comes" by Ruth Brown, "I Can't Afford To Lose Him" by Baby Washington, and "You Can't Love Me (In The Midnight Hour)" by Ann Mason with Little Mac & The Boss Sounds.

VariousGroovin The Blues – When Groove Was More Than Just A Habit ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $14.99 25.99
Killer blues from RCA Records' Groove subsidiary – home to its roughest, rawest work in the 50s – and a treasure trove of under-discovered gems! And although these tracks are mostly blues at the core, they often step forth with the power of more upbeat R&B – as artists you might normally associate with more down home sounds get a nice sort of crackle and pop in the Groove Records setting – often just through some slight touches in the backing instrumentation and arrangements, which update their modes to a great mid 50s, soul-drenched vibe! Bear Family have done a great job with the track list here – and have unearthed a number of tracks we've never heard from this stretch on the label – 33 titles that include "Wait Till Next Year Baby" by Big Connie, "I Took You In Baby" by Sonny Terry, "Tain't Right" by Big Tiny Kennedy, "Love Blues" by Clayton Love, "No Nice" by Buddy Lucas, "The Ups" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Goin Back Home" by Cousin Leroy, "You've Been Good To Everybody" by The Du Droppers, "Won't You Forgive Me" by Little Tommy Brown, "I'll Life My Life Alone" by Oscar Black & Sue Allen, and "Beantown Boogie" by Bertrice Reading.

✨✧ VariousSoul Togetherness Presents – Village Soul 2 – 17 Fantastic Modern Soul Gems ... CD
Expansion (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A motherlode of rare soul from the 70s – all of it as smooth and grooving as you'd expect from the "modern soul" tag in the title – mixed here with a few more contemporary cuts that really retain the flavor of the classics! The title's a bit oblique, but the music's totally great – a killer batch of 70s smooth soul, most of which is pretty darn rare, and which never really got its due back in the day! There's plenty of warmth here overall – great backings, with a high level of class – rhythms that never go too over the top – and well-balanced vocals that step and slide nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Waiting In Vain" by Chuck Jackson, "Keep On Walking By" by Midnight, "Love Takes Tears" by The Real Thing, "Like Water" by Billy Griffin, "Best Love" by Rose Royce, "One More Step To Take" by Delegation, "Do You Like The Way I Love You" by The Ebonys, "I Don't Care What People Say" by Carl Douglas, "It's Just Your Love" by Aretha Franklin, "Walk In My Shoes" by Bruce Cloud, "Make Me Yours" by ZZ Hill, "Bring Back The Love Of Yesterday" by The Dells, and "I'm Here" by Randy Brown.

Bill Evans & Lee KonitzBill Evans & Lee Konitz Play The Arrangements Of Jimmy Giuffre (Lee Konitz Meets Jimmy Giuffre/You & Lee) ... CD
Verve/Lonehill (Spain), 1959. Used ... $9.99
An amazing convergence of talents – one that took place in 1959, for Verve Records, and which featured work by some of the greatest modernists of the late 50s! The CD features work from 2 different Verve albums – Lee Konitz Meets Jimmy Giuffre and You & Lee – both of which features arrangements from Giuffre, then making big waves with his pianoless trio format for the label (and Atlantic) – but who's working here in a larger setting that still showcases his marvelously fluid conception of sound. The first set features twin altos by Konitz and Hal McKusic, alongside tenors by Warne Marsh and Ted Brown, with baritone sax by Jimmy, and incredibly subtle piano work by Bill Evans. The next session features Giuffre taking an even stronger hand in arrangements, but letting Konitz step out even more as the lead soloist – working within a larger horn group that features work by Billy Byers, Eddie Bert, and Ernie Royal. Bill Evans only plays on 4 of these tunes, with Jim Hall sliding in on guitar for the remainder – but that shift is ok with us, as it only further displays the Giuffre magic at the time! 17 tracks in all – with titles that include "Palo Alto", "Cork N Bib", "Uncharted", "Sompn Outa Nothin", "Darn That Dream", "I Didn't Know About You", "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", and "You Are Too Beautiful".

Linval ThompsonLinval Presents – Encounters Pac Man (2CD pressing) ... CD
Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 21.98
Pac Man has never looked so menacing before – but the cover image might be fitting, given the way the dub versions here rips into the cuts and chomps them down to their barest essence – with the help of the Roots Radics band! The album's a key illustration of that new generation of dub unleashed by Scientist and some of his contemporaries – versions that go way way past the originals, and are often so abstracted, they work together more as dark splatters of noise, with just a slight Kingston undercurrent to tie them to familiar reggae modes. Great stuff throughout – a record that's definitely as compelling as it's cover – and with titles that include "Under Surveillance", "Prince's Wrath", "Space Invaders Regroup", "World Cup Squad Lick Their Wounds", "Vampire Initiative", "Malicious Intent", "The Dark Secret Of The Box", "SOS", "Man Trap", and "Look Out Behind You". This great version also includes a bonus CD with original vocal versions by Eek-A-Mouse, Dennis Brown, Linval Thompson, The Viceroys and more. CD

Steve Turre, Hilton Ruiz, Bill Hardman & Jr CookVibration Society – The Music Of Rahsaan Roland Kirk ... LP
Stash, 1986. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A beautiful tribute to the music of Rahsaan Roland Kirk – one that really gets at all the sensitive soul and spirit that we first came to love in his recordings of the 60s! The quality of the set's no surprise, though, given that some of the key members here include Steve Turre and Hilton Ruiz – both of whom worked with Kirk back in the day, and who not only recreate his sound wonderfully – but also do a good of imagining its extension, had Roland not been taken from us too soon in his all-too-short career. Other players include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor, Paul Brown on bass, and Leroy Williams on drums – and Suzanne Klewan and Timmy Shepherd sing on a few tracks tool. Titles include "Spirits Up Above", "A Handful Of Fives", "Serenade To A Cuckoo", "Theme For The Eulipions", "My Delight", "Bright Moments", and "The Inflated Tear". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousFunky Side Of Goldband/Anla Records 1963 to 1971 ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A legendary label that you may know for its deep soul and blues-drenched work of the 60s – served up here with a special focus on the imprint's funkier tracks and groovers! The Goldband studios were down in Louisiana, not far from New Orleans – but the styles here aren't just the usual Crescent City grooves, and instead also show elements from other southern scenes running from Texas, to Memphis, to Muscle Shoals! The guitar is great on some of the best numbers here – tight and skittish, and really riffing along with the rhythms in a very funky way – and the vocals mix bluesy undercurrents with James Brown funk – and pop and crackle nicely throughout. We'd never heard most of this work before, and this side of Goldband is very new to us – a great discovery – and titles include "Sidewinder" and "Too Much" by The Showboats, "The Warm Up" by Clifton White & His Royal Knights, "Getting Out OF Town" by Lee Bernard, "Double EE Agent" by Charles Greene, "Back Door Man" by Count Rockin Sidney, "Crazy Girl (parts 1 & 2)" by Freddie Love, "Forgive Me" by Dynamic Adam & His Excitements, "Feel Delicious" by Count Rockin Sidney & The Dukes, and "Soul Brothers Testify (parts 1 & 2)" by Chester Randle's Soul Senders.

✨✧ VariousSouthern Funkin' – Louisiana Funk & Soul 1967 to 1979 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Heavy heavy funk from the Louisiana scene of the late 60s and 1970s – and a great collection that really gets past the dominance of the New Orleans sound! The set moves way past the Crescent City to uncover a wealth of great bits recorded in smaller studios located in Shreveport, Lake Charles, and a variety of tiny scenes in the southwest side of Louisiana – and the result is a great batch of tunes with a really gritty, down-n-dirty sound! There's a wealth of great funky styles in the set – including James Brown-inspired jammers, southern soul burners, and some other great modes that show that Louisiana's got a heck of a lot more to offer than just New Orleans funk. Titles include work from the Anla, Murco, Soul International, Goldband, and Tic Toc labels – a total of 22 cuts that include "Soul Time" by Ernest Thomas, "Soul Feeling (parts 1 & 2)" by Eddy G Giles, "Soul Brothers Testify (part 1)" by Chester Randles Soul Senders, "Soul Power" by Abraham & The Casanovas, "Put It On" by Count Rockin Sidney with The Dukes, "Fix It" by Clifton White & His Royal Knights, "Miss Hard To Get" by Dennis Landry, "No Sad Times" by Johnny Truit, "Black Water Gold" by African Music Machine, and "I Got A Groove" by JJ Callier.
