Cryan ShamesScratch The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A great step forward for The Cryan Shames – a group who started their career singing other peoples' music, but who emerge here with some great songs of their own! There's a brilliant Sunshine Pop feel to the whole record – but there's also some garagey elements that reflect the group's presence on the Chicago scene of the 60s – not a Dunwich quality entirely, but not far off either! That edge makes the psych moments really sparkle nicely – with a more sinister feel than anyone might have guessed from the group on their initial outing. A few moments echo Brit invasion modes – but with a trippier style that's a bit like Chad & Jeremy on Columbia – and titles include "Cobblestone Road", "The Sailing Ship", "A Carol For Lorelei", "Sunshine Psalm", "Mr Unreliable", and "In The Cafe".

✨✧ Miles DavisMiles In The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
Miles Davis makes the electric transition – in this groundbreaking set from the late 60s! The classic mid 60s quintet is still in place here – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – but the sound is looser, freer, and more spacious – often echoing some of the rhythmic concerns that would dominate Miles' music in a few more years, but without as much of a bombastic sound. Williams' drums are amazing – fierce one minute, then fading the next – and Herbie Hancock's use of both electric and acoustic piano really points at his own directions in coming years. George Benson plays one one track – "Paraphernalia" – introducing electric guitar to the Miles Davis sound – and other long tracks on the set include "Stuff", "Black Comedy", and "Country Son".

Earth Wind & FireHead To The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A tremendously beautiful album – and a righteous anthem of power and growth that seems to open itself up to us more and more over the years! Earth Wind & Fire are at their height here – mixing together soul and funk with a set of influences that includes African percussion and Brazilian jazz – then blending the whole thing effortlessly into a cosmic sound that's simply breathless! "Keep Your Head To The Sky" is a song of pride that became an instant underground classic; "Zanzibar" is an incredible reworking of Edu Lobo's famous composition, turning the Brazilian baroque track into a spacey groover that soars on for 13 minutes; and "Evil" is a great tune that features the electrified Kalimba that became the band's sonic and legal trademark over the years! Other titles include "The World's A Masquerade", "Clover", and "Build Your Nest". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Aretha FranklinHey, Now Hey (The Other Side Of The Sky) ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
One of Aretha Franklin's greatest records – and a complicated batch of jazzy tunes that features arrangements and production by Quincy Jones! The record breaks way past the stock southern soul style of some of Aretha's earlier work for Atlantic – and it features a more sophisticated style that hits a number of different moods, and which shows off Aretha's strong commitment to growth as an artist. Features a semi-hit reading of King Pleasure's old classic, "Moody's Mood For Love", plus "Sister From Texas", "Somewhere", "Angel", and "That's The Way I Feel About Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

Mesa Bluemoon/Pyramid, 2004. Used ... $6.99
Donny Hathaway's soulful daughter makes a long-overdue return – bringing us her first album in over a decade! The wait's been more than worth it, though – as its clear that Lalah's matured strongly over the years – coming up with a rich, soulful sound that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a sweet voice with a famous last name. Of course, the production help is a big part of the the set too – as Lalah's working with talents that include Mike City, Chris Parks, Vivian Sessoms, and Rex Rideout – all of whom help to give the set a sound that's professional, yet laidback and mellow. Titles include "Better & Better", "If U Ever", "In The End", "Your Favorite Song", "Back Then", "How Many Times", and "Boston". CD

Hampton HawesTwo Sides Of Hampton Hawes (High In The Sky/Hampton Hawes Plays Movie Musicals) ... LP
JAS, Late 60s/1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
A posthumous issue of material by Hampton Hawes – material originally recorded in the late 60s for the Vault label, repackaged here as a 2-in-1 set! The first record features work from High In The Sky – a lost trio session by Hawes, recorded in LA in 1970, with backing by Leroy Vinnegar and Donald Bailey – and a sound that's a lot more soulful than usual! Hawes is in fine fine form at the time – playing long and contemplative lines that almost sound like they're coming from an electric piano at times, in a mode that must have had a huge influence on other west coast jazzers, like George Cables. The album's got a great long cover of "The Look Of Love", plus a groovy set of originals that include "Muffin Man", "Carmel", "Spanish Girl", and "High In The Sky". A bit hipper than some of his other work – and with a nicely subdued groove! The second set is similar, but slightly different – titled Hampton Hawes Plays Movie Musicals, and featuring a bunch of tunes from same – played by Hampton in a trio setting, but one that's also slightly augmented by a small group from time to time. Titles include "Old Devil Moon", "Where Is Love", "How Are Things In Glocca Morra", and "As Long As She Needs Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie HubbardSky Dive ... LP
CTI, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
A killer set from Freddie Hubbard's legendary years on CTI! Like the classic Red Clay album, there's 4 tunes here, all longer cuts – where everyone gets a chance to stretch out a bit, over smooth (but not too smooth!) electric grooves, supported by great orchestrations from Don Sebesky! Ron Carter & Billy Cobham provide a tight but elastic rhythmic underpinning – a great foil for solos by players who include Keith Jarrett on electric piano, George Benson on guitar, Hubert Laws on flute, and Freddie himself on trumpet. Airto & Ray Barretto are on percussion, with some nice percolating accents to the grooves – and titles include the classic "Povo", an oft-sampled monster – plus "In A Mist", "The Godfather", and "Sky Dive".

Open SkyOpen Sky ... LP
PM, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
A lesser-known side of early work from the great Dave Liebman – a very hip trio that also features Frank Tusa on bass and Bob Moses on drums and kalimba! The sound is very open, very spacious, and surprisingly spiritual – more so than some of Liebman's other work, especially in later years – and it's clear that all three are definitely inspired by the freedoms of the post-Coltrane generation, and are seeking a way to stretch out and really deliver their own sort of message. Liebman sounds wonderful on wooden flute, soprano sax, tenor, clarinet, and standard flute – and titles include "Flute Piece", "Deep", "Questions", and "Devotion". LP, Vinyl record album

Open SkySpirit In The Sky ... LP
PM, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
A powerful little trio – and one of the boldest setting that reedman Dave Liebman recorded in during the 70s! The Open Sky combo features Dave on a range of reeds – tenor, soprano, and alto flute – plus a bit of acoustic piano and percussion too – often working with these long lines that are very spiritual and progressive, but neither too jamming, nor too outside at all! Bassist Frank Tusa's got this warm, round tone that really deepens the record – and drummer Bob Moses is at his best in helping to bring just the right sort of spark to the music. The best tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Bugs Bunny", "Mfwala Myo Lala", "Striving For Truth", and "Amy". LP, Vinyl record album

Dylan Ryan & SandSky Bleached ... CD
Cuneiform, 2013. Used ... $3.99
A strong statement from drummer Dylan Ryan and Sand – Dylan's trio with guitarist Timothy Young and bassist Devin Hoff. This is in a more paired down setting than we've heard Dylan in recently and it's damn strong stuff! Chicago-bred musician Ryan has never been one to heed stylistic boundaries – mixing up free jazz and avant rock into a unique, compelling sound. Now a citizen of LA, he's sounding as fresh as ever. The rhythmic interplay between Ryan and Hoff is equally invigorating in tightly walloping arrangements and the looser ones, and Young's fiery electric guitar is awesome to behold – particularly on the feedback-flavored rave ups. Includes "White Nights", "Barocco", "Psychic Journey", "Mayan Sun", "White Magic", "Soft Rain On A Dead Sea", "Time Stalkers", "Translucent Spheres", "Dreamspell" and "Sky Bleached". CD

Family CircleFamily Circle ... LP
Sky Disc/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 16.98
A lost harmony soul treasure – by an obscure family group from the Newark scene! The Family Circle have a fantastic style that mixes together sweet and deep soul styles into a darkly tinged approach that we'd rank with the best harmony soul of the early 70s – similar to work from bigger New Jersey groups, like The Moments or Whatnauts – but with an interesting twist too, given the mix of male and female vocals.. Nearly every track on the album is an original tune – conducted with baroque arrangements by George Andrews, and delivered with a near-perfect approach that makes this album a real treasure all the way through – not a soul record that's great because it's rare, but just a great album all the way through. Titles include "Change", "If You Really Want To Make It", "Loving You Makes The World Go Round", "I Hope You Really Love Me", "Mariya", and "La La So Lucky". LP, Vinyl record album

Jason AjemianFolklords ... LP
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention – in a mode that still hits plenty of jazz, with key use of work by Monk, Mingus, and Sun Ra – but which really abstracts things and takes them to a whole new level – opening up cosmic territory that lives up to the album's stated request to "Please Feel Yourselves". Ajemian plays bass and some electronics, in a quartet that also features Owen Stewart Robertson on guitar and electronics, Kid Bliss on alto sax and vibrolux, and Jason Nazary on drums – the last of which are played in a very slow, spacious style. All tracks are long – and titles include "Ask Mr Blunt Now" – which features extrapolations of "Satellites Are Spinning" and "Ask Me Now" – and "Orange Is The Color Of The Sun Then Blue Sky" – which is built upon some key Charles Mingus tunes. Other titles are originals, and include "Material Girls" and "Freedom Is A Trail Of Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

Black Sabbath going strong – very much in their own space by this point in their career, setting a sound that countless others would try to follow – but never match for fierceness like this! The fuzz is definitely turned up to 11, the rhythms move at a breakneck speed, and Ozzy's vocals have all the mean, sinister sounds that set a generation on fire – plenty of energy to fill up long tracks that include "Megalomania", "Hole In The Sky", "Symptom Of The Universe", "Supertzar", "Am I Going Insane", and "The Writ".

BlackbyrdsBlackbyrds ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold ... $24.99
A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound that was different from many of their contemporaries, and which pushed funk and soul into a whole new level. Byrd's work with the band was as groundbreaking as Larry Mizell's work on his own Blue Note albums – and coincidentally, Larry Mizzell's Sky High Productions handles the studio chores for the set – but in a way that's much more sharply funky than his albums with Byrd! Titles include the tight choppy funk tracks "Do It, Fluid" and "Funky Junkie", plus other nice groovers like "Summer Love", "Gut Level", and "The Runaway". LP, Vinyl record album

Brotzmann/McPhee/Kessler/ZerangTales Out Of Time ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 2002. New Copy ... $19.99
A great illustration of the international power of the Chicago jazz scene in recent years – its ability to bring together players like Peter Brotzmann and Joe McPhee, and allow them to record together in such sympathetic company! At the time of the session, McPhee and Brotzmann had worked together for a few years in Brotzmann's larger tentet, and briefly on stage in a co-led quartet – and they share that energy here with bassist Kent Kessler and percussionist Michael Zerang in a set of spare, open-ended tracks that allow plenty of room for intimate improvisation. Brotzmann plays alto and tenor, McPhee plays tenor, pocket cornet, and trumpet – and titles include "Stone Poem 1", "Alto Lightning In A Violin Sky", "Pieces Of Red Green & Blue", "In Anticipation Of The Next", "Do You Still Love Me/Did I Ever", and "Cymbalism".

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album

Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most obscure albums from jazz guitarist Billy Butler – the musician who first rose to fame in the gritty R&B work of organist Bill Doggett, then went onto cut some great funky albums for Prestige Records at the end of the 60s! This set is a lot more unusual than any of those records, though – as it features music from legendary soundtrack composer Galt MacDermot, who also produced the session for his own tiny label! Billy's style here is a bit different than some of his jazz work – more of a focus on chromes and tones, with some wah wah moments that are especially nice – guitar lines that snake around these laidback grooves from a sweet small combo that features drums by Bernard Purdie, bass by Wilbur Bascomb, and piano by Galt himself! Things get nice and spacey at all the best moments – and tracks include "Hush", "Life Wins", "400 Girls Ago", and "Other Side of the Sky". CD

One of Jubilee Records' excellent collections of earlier vocal group material – served up in a cool covered package with some nice Scorpio Rising overtones! The collection doesn't exactly come across with the violence implied by the name, and most material here has a style that's older than the cover image would imply – but the album, like others in the series, was a key format for presenting cuts known only as singles – at a level that gave them a bit more prominence in the market. The whole thing's great – music that's at the best level of early group soul on the New York scene – and titles include "Fine Fine Frame" and "Dear Lord" by The Continentals, "The Gleam In Your Eye" and "The Closer You Are" by The Channels, "Castle In The Sky" and "When I Woke Up This Morning" by The Bop Chords, and "If I Could Make You Mine" and "Tonight" by The Love Notes.

Cohn handled most of the arrangements – but a few are by Johnny Carisi, Ralph Burns, or Manny Albam –a nd players include Joe Newman on trumpet, Billy Byaers and Frank Rehak on trombone, Gene Quill on alto, and Jimmy Raney on guitar.

The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou!

The album features a number of great tracks co-written with Jimmy Holiday – a fellow Imperial talent – and titles include "Mediterranean Sky", "Sooner Or Later", "What Was Your Day Like", "Livin On The Easy Side", "Brighton Hill", and "When Morning Comes Again".

Dr Dre's first proper album in 15+ years, and you just know he wouldn't even bother if didn't have something solid to put there, right? Sky high expectations aside, it's a damn strong effort. Dre is in ringmaster and super-producer mode here, bringing in a diverse roster of vocal players and doing his distinctive thing behind the scenes a lot the time. Compton hardly ever directly retreads on the sounds of his past, which makes it all the more remarkable, because you KNOW this is a Dr. Dre record even if it doesn't sound exactly like his past work. Includes "Talk About It" feat King Mez & Justus, "Genocide" with Kendrick Lamar, Marsha Ambrosius * Candice Pillay, "It's All On Me" feat Justus & BJ The Chicago Kid, "One Shot One Kill" feat Jon Connor & Snoop, "Satisfaction" feat Snoop, Marsha Abrosius & King Mez, "Medicine Man" feat Eminem, Candice Pillay & Anderson .Paak, "Issues" feat Ice Cube, Anderson .Paak & Dem Jointz and more.

La La Land, 1956. New Copy ... $19.99
The brilliant score for one of the greatest sci fi films ever – music that's filled with just the right sort of drama to make the narrative work! If you've ever seen the movie, you know that most of the action is very subtle – things hinted at, often offscreen or out of the scene – and the music here really follows the sense of tension that story creates – with these bursts of orchestrations at some point, followed by tenser, more brooding passages – and the occasional eerie touch that makes things even creepier. The sound is great, and the music really bursts from the surface of the album with even more vivid energy than on the screen – and titles include "Open The Door", "They're Over There", "The Voices", "No Bananas Today", "Here Comes My Love", "Wilma/The Devil's Workshop/Get Help/Yell For Help", and "Out Of The Sky/No Choice" – as well as some bonus source music!

Earth Wind & FireFaces ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
The genius of Earth Wind & Fire knows no bounds – and even on this double-length set, the group keep up their groove tremendously! The 2LP scope of Faces might make it seem like an ambitious enterprise, but it's really just an overstuffed package that tries to contain all the genius the group was capable of at the time – a flurry of well-written, nice-grooving, and still-righteous soul tracks that have the EWF sound glowing brightly at the end of the 70s – always seeming to re-ignite itself with its own bold sense of power. A few tracks get a bit mellow, and almost adult – but the best numbers here are the groovers – still done with plenty of jazz in the mix, and a sublime mix of guitar, horns, and percussion that few other groups could carry off this well! Titles include "Pride", "Let Me Talk", "Turn It Into Something Good", "Sparkle", "And The Love Goes On", "Sailaway", "Take It To The Sky", "Song In My Heart", and "Win Or Lose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves and the poster. Cover has cut corner. Top seam is partially unglued.)

Duke EllingtonIndigos ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Duke Ellington's best albums of the 50s – a well-conceived session of dark moody tracks that revisits a few old favorites, hits a few standards, and offers a new gem that's right up there with the classics! The "indigos" title is taken very seriously here – as the album's awash in blue tones and darker hues – a bit Kenton in inspiration, but carried off with a lot more intimacy and sense of soul throughout. The group by this point is completely mature – and old bandmates like Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet, Cat Anderson and Ray Nance on trumpets, and Jimmy Woode on bass all fit together perfectly under Ellington's direction. Titles include Duke's great "The Sky Fell Down", plus "Mood Indigo", "Autumn Leaves", "Tenderly", "Dancing In The Dark", "Where Or When", and "Solitude". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some marker on back.)

JD EmmanuelWizards ... CD
Important Records, Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99
Beautiful sounds from this underground electronician – a set of obscure recordings that are all inspired by the early 70s keyboard experiments of Terry Riley – but which take his styles into even more hypnotic territory overall! JD Emmanuel's keys are every bit as cyclical and compelling as Riley's – but often a bit more mellow, too – so that the sounds flow with this gentle sort of grace – almost sounds from space, finding a new life here in the organic texture of the planet! The cover implies some slight new age thinking behind the record – but the overall vibe is much more in the spare electronic mode of Sky Records material from Rodelius and Moebius – with a similarly cool style of production. Titles include "At One Moment", "Focusing Within", "Prayer", and "Expanding Into The Universe". CD

Booker ErvinIn Between ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the last records that Booker Ervin ever recorded, and one of the best! There's a depth of tone and conception here that goes far beyond even Ervin's already-great albums for Prestige – a mix of modernism and soulful expression that really points the way towards jazz expression in the 70s – although sadly, Booker was to leave the planet before getting a chance to stretch out in that era. All 6 tracks on the album are originals – and they sparkle with the imagination found on some of the most top-shelf Blue Notes of the time – work by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, or Wayne Shorter – played by a group that includes the amazing Richard Williams on trumpet (almost worth the price of the record alone), Bobby Few on piano, Lenny McBrowne on drums, and the little-known Cevera Jefferies on bass. Loads of dark edges, searing solos, and plenty of free flights into the sky – on titles that include "The In Between", "Tyra", "The Muse", "Mour", "Sweet Pea", and "Largo". CD
(SHMCD pressing.)
