✨✧ Herb AlpertFandango ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1982. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet Latin-styled set from trumpeter Herb Alpert – but one that's got a very different vibe than his faux Latin grooves of the 60s! The set here is done with key contributions from both Juan Carlos Calderon as a songwriter, and Jose Quintana as a producer – both talents who really help Herb reshape his groove in a mighty nice way! Backings are big, and somewhat smooth – as in the "Rise" era – but there's also some Latin jazz elements in the mix too, and an overall approach that isn't nearly as cluttered as you might expect for the time – with an especially strong emphasis on Herb's trumpet solos in the lead. The set was the first issued on the A&M Latin label – AyM Discos – and also features a bit of Spanish language vocals as well. Titles include "Fandango", "Route 101", "Angel", "Aria", "Sugarloaf", "Coco Loco", "Latin Medley", "California Blues", and "Push & Pull". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassBeat Of The Brass ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1968. Used ... $4.99
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven exotic touches and sweeter A&M pop – all coming together at a level that's far more sophisticated than you might guess if you've only got a version of Herb that's reduced to simple cliche! Herb also makes a key vocal appearance on the song "This Guy's In Love With You" – the group's first #1 single, and the beginning of a great run of Alpert vocalizations. Other tracks include "The Robin", "Slick", "Panama", "A Beautiful Friend", "She Touched Me", and "Thanks For The Memory". CD

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... $1.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert with Lani HallSteppin' Out ... CD
Shout Factory, 2013. Used ... $5.99
A great groove from Herb Alpert – and a set that almost returns him back to his best fusion styles of the 70s! Lani Hall's billed on the title of this one, but only sings on a handful of tracks – leaving most of the set to focus on Herb's sweet trumpet lines, out front of backings that often have a core jazzy style with sweet electric touches! If you dig Herb from his "Rise" years, you'll find plenty to love here – on titles that include "Jacky's Place", "Our Song", "Green Lemonade", "Cote D'Azur", "It's All In The Game", "And The Angels Sing", "Migration", and "Oblivion".

✨✧ John ColtraneJohn Coltrane – The Bethlehem Years (Winner's Circle/Art Blakey Big Band) ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1957. Used 2CD ... $4.99
The complete recordings done by John Coltrane for Bethlehem Records – mostly cut during December of 1957, and issued on the albums The Winner's Circle and Art Blakey Big Band! Both albums were a bit unusual for the label – in that The Winner's Circle was sort of a blowing/jam session type record, cut with some of the big poll winners of the year, but with shorter tracks than the usual Prestige-styled set of that nature. The lineup includes Donald Byrd, Al Cohn, Eddie Costa, Oscar Pettiford, and Philly Joe Jones – and Coltrane's a bit buried in the group, but gets out some nice licks from time to time. The second set of tracks was recorded for a unique big band session led by Art Blakey – featuring a core group with Coltrane, Donald Byrd, Walter Bishop Jr, and Wendell Marshall on some tracks – plus a larger lineup on a number of others. The CD brings together a whopping 27 tracks from these sessions, including some great alternate takes – and titles include "Midriff", "Tippin", "The Outer World", "The Kiss Of No Return", "Pristine Take", and "Oasis" – a previously unreleased track!

Johnny Guitar WatsonReal Mother For Ya (expanded edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
DJM/Shout Factory, 1977. Used ... $3.99
Johnny Guitar Watson at the top of his game – working here in a sublime mix of funk, blues, and soul – all crafted into a groove that was uniquely Watson's own! Johnny may have started the 70s in relative obscurity – down from some hit work in the 50s and 60s – but by the time of this set, he was back on top, and working in a confident groove that few others from his older era could ever hope to achieve! There's a youthful sense of sex and soul that run through the entire set – an effortlessly slinky groove that never goes too over the top in the funk department, and which makes just the right use of electric instrumentation and tripped-out production, but never gets too wrapped up in either – and often comes off with some great jazzy touches as well. Titles include the anthemic "Real Mother For Ya", plus "Your Love Is My Love", "The Real Deal", "Tarzan", "I Wanna Thank You", and "Lover Jones". CD also features 2 previously unissued bonus tracks – "Kathaline" and "De John's Delight". CD

✨✧ Solomon BurkeLike A Fire ... CD
Shout Factory, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty sweet record from one of the best soul singer ever – the mighty Solomon Burke – a fairly stripped down set that finds Solomon backed in the studio by some huge names and session veterans alike – who handle the material with taste, restraint, and soul! The title track kicks it off – a surprisingly nice tune penned by Eric Clapton – and the record actually gets better from there, with loads of acoustic based southern soul and country soul. There are a couple of heaters that let Burke get his growl on – but for the most part this is just a really sweet back porch soul set with from one of the greatest soul vocalists to ever pick up a microphone – and respectful players that include Danny Kortchmar and Dean Parks on guitars, Larry Taylor on bass, Steve Jordan on drums & percussion, Rudy Copeland & David Paich on keys, and guests Keb Mo and Ben Harper. Other tracks include "We Don't Need It", "The Fall", "A Minute To Rest And A Second To Pray", "Ain't That Something", "Understanding", "You And Me", "I Give My Heart To You" and more. CD

✨✧ Dexter GordonDaddy Plays The Horn ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Dexter Gordon's proudest moments of the 50s – a rock-solid session for Bethlehem – easily one of the best-remembered hardbop sides from the label's California years! The album's got a relaxed, free-blown sound that's quite nice – with Dex in the lead on tenor, supported by the trio of Kenny Drew on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Lawrence Marable on drums. Gordon's perhaps not as fully imaginative as he would become in the 60s, but his sound and control is still great throughout – and the rhythm section really helps knock this one out of the park. Titles include versions of "Darn That Dream", "Autumn In New York", "You Can Depend On Me", and "Confirmation", plus two originals "Number Four" and "Daddy Plays The Horn". CD
