Haircuts & The ImpossiblesCall It Soul ... LP
Somerset, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A weird one. The record is billed as "soul" in the title, but it's more of a psychedelic pop outing, with lots of trippy guitars, strange vocals, and most important, some very funky drums. There are a few cuts that start out with some excellent breaks, including "Bun Buster" and "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", while others have a nice groovy instrumental feel. Titles include "Billy's Blues", "Sock it My Way", and "Inside Looking Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light stains along the spine.)

Marco RizoBossa Nova – Brazilian Jazz ... LP
Somerset, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Rizo was one of many American Latin pianists who tried to cash in on the bossa craze in the early 60s – but like so many others, his style is much more steeped in Latin playing, with a much heavier sound than some of the Brazilian keyboardists who were the true geniuses of bossa. Still not bad if you dig easy grooves – and tracks include "Desafinado", "Lucy Bossa", "Chit Chat", "Rio Bossa", and "Chopin Goes To Rio". LP, Vinyl record album

Pete TerraceKing Of The Boogaloo ... LP
Somerset, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Pete Terrace challenges Pete Rodriguez for the title of "King Of The Boogaloo" in this live set recorded at Chez Jose in New York! The album's got a few tracks that say boogaloo, but which aren't – but that's still ok with us, because the bulk of the set is a hard grooving batch of uptempo groovers that would make anyone proud – and the record's easily one of Pete's best from the 60s! Includes covers of "El Pito", "At The Party", and "Bang Bang" – plus Marty Sheller-penned originals like "Do The Boogaloo", "I'm Gonna Make It", "Here Comes Pete", and "No! No! No!". Pete's vibes sound mighty nice, and the pianist in the group is nice and firey! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMore Soul Sauce – Played & Sung By Great Artists ... LP
Somerset, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Kind of a follow-up to the Paul Griffin Soul Sauce album on Somerset – clearly indicated by the "more" in the title, and the same image and coloring on the front cover! The style here is a bit different, though – because unlike Paul's record, which was all instrumental, this one features a variety of unnamed vocalists singing the tunes – billed as "great" on the cover, but clearly not enough so to be listed by name! Most of the record is in a soundalike 60s soul mode – clearly for the bargain crowd who can't afford to buy the original hits – but the record does have a few standout tracks that include a Hammond-heavy instrumental of "Frankie & Johnny", maybe played by Griffin, and a really crazy take on "Sabre Dance" with riffing guitars that are almost in a Ventures mode – but even wilder and with a lot of stratospheric echo! Vocal tracks include "Getting Hip", "Your Mini Skirt", "Bring Back My Love", "Baby I Love You", and "Tuff Enuff". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & a split seam.)

✨✧ Eddie BertLike Cool – The Contemporary Trombone Artistry Of Eddie Bert (aka Let's Dig Bert) ... LP
Somerset, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little album that features some of Eddie Bert's best work as a leader – a set with some sharp modern tones and a very cool feel overall! The outing's a strong small combo one – with Bert in lead on trombone, plus tenor by Dave Schildkraut, guitar by Barry Gailbraith, piano by Hank Jones, and drums by Osie Johnson. Tracks are more open than you'd expect – with lots of great blowing by Bert in that dark moody mode he worked on with Mingus. Schildkraut's sax is very nice, too – and tracks include "Blue Beetle Original", "Father Time", "Cool School Days", "Home Cookin", and "Speedster". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Paul GriffinPours On Some Soul Sauce ... LP
Somerset, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Short tracks of soul jazz organ with a definite pop R&B gospel feel –similar to something that you might hear coming from the Stax or Hi studios of the time, but with a little bit more liveliness than Booker T & The MGs. Griffin's sound is clean and sharp, and the album includes a number of originals with an uptempo gospelly feel to them, like "Old Time Soul Sauce", "Some Down Home Soul", "Blow One For Otis", and "Wilson, Otis, and Aretha". Cool cover, too, with some groovy kids dancing at what appears to be a very segregated dance! LP, Vinyl record album
(Light blue label pressing. Cover has a split top seam.)

✨✧ Zoot SimsSomebody Loves Me ... CD
Groove Merchant/LRC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A motherlode of great music from Zoot Sims – mid 70s recordings done for the Groove Merchant label, presented here in a double-length package! Although Groove Merchant was mostly known for its funkier sounds, the work here is nicely back to basics for Sims – small group sessions that give him plenty of room to open up and blow – paired with players that include Lionel Hampton on vibes, Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, Teddy Wilson on piano, and Buddy Rich on drums. The sound is warm, but never sleepy – and Zoot's tenor has a nice edge on his solos that dominate most tunes. CD features 14 tracks that include "Nirvana", "Somerset", "A Summer Thing", "Somebody Loves Me", "Up A Lazy River", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Send In the Clowns", "Air Mail Special", "Ham Hock Blues", and "Ring Dem Bells".

✨✧ James MoodyJames Moody With Strings ... LP
Argo, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare setting for Moody – a player who rarely cut sides with larger backing, but who sounds really wonderful here! The album's got Moody blowing mostly alto, and a bit of flute – over large backings by Torrie Zito that feature equal parts strings and woodwinds – conducted in a way that's got the same modern touches as the best Verve "with strings" work from the 50s, but which also shares some of the boozier, more mature touches that Zito brought to his work for vocalists in the 60s. There's a sad, languid feel to the record that's emotively redeemed by Moody's soulful and contemplative solo work – breaking out nicely on titles that include Zito originals "Somerset", "Another Day", "Dorothee", "A Song Of Love", and "Dorian Mood" – plus versions of "I Remember Clifford", "Love For Sale", and "All My Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Cadet stereo pressing with deep groove.)
