Miles DavisFreedom Jazz Dance – The Bootleg Series Vol 5 (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia, Late 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $36.99 39.98
One of the coolest entries so far in this excellent series of rare material from legendary trumpeter Miles Davis – a set that brings together unheard studio sessions from the years 1966 to 1968 – some tracks from the recordings that gave the world the Miles Smiles, Nefertiti, and Water Babies albums! The group here is that legendary lineup that includes Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – a group who, by this point, was quite comfortable with both each other, and the new ideas that Miles was bringing to his music – very ready to step out with the rich sense of imagination they brought to music like this. There's definitely a new current of darkness here – that brooding quality that Davis had on some of his pre-electric dates – and it's wonderful to hear his ideas develop over a few performances of some tunes, and also through some of the studio chatter too. Titles include two takes of "Freedom Jazz Dance", three versions of "Circle", two of "Dolores", "Orbits", "Footprints", "Gingerbread Boy", "Nefertiti", "Fall", and "Water Babies" – plus the tracks "Play Your Eight", "Blues In F", "Country Son", and "Masqualero".

Sonny Boy WilliamsonBummer Road ... CD
Chess, 1957/1958/1960. Used ... $5.99
No bummer here, as the set's a really great one – filled with late 50s Chess Records sides by Sonny Boy Williamson – a number of which are previously unissued! The package does a great job of reviving this material for a newly-informed blues audience of the modern age – giving liner notes, recording details, and more – in addition to pulling together sides that hadn't appeared on album before. Titles include "Little Village" – which is 12 minutes long, and interestingly marked as "not suitable for airplay" – plus "She Got Next To Me", "Santa Claus", "Unseen Eye", "I Can't Do Without You", "Temperature 110", and "This Old Life".

Sonny Boy WilliamsonMore Real Folk Blues ... CD
Chess, Early 60s. Used ... $1.99
Classic blues harp and raw vocals from Sonny Boy Williamson – material recorded for Chess during the early 60s, and issued after his death, with a title that's certainly designed to catch the attention of the college kids looking for the "real" thing! The work here is really great – and often gets past cliches you might imagine of Chicago blues – thanks to a meanly gritty style from Sonny, but also some nice sue of organ and guitar to help vamp up the tunes a bit! Chugging rhythms drive along the best numbers nicely – and titles include "The Goat", "Decoration Day", "The Hunt", "Nine Below Zero", "Stop Right Now", and "Close To Me". CD

Sonny Boy WilliamsonOne Way Out ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
A great little collection of work that Sonny Boy Williamson recorded for Chess in the 50s and early 60s – presented here as one of the well-done archival packages that Chess was doing in the early 70s, as interest in their classics was coming back again. Most of the numbers here feature Williamson on vocals and harmonica, working with likely Chess associates who include Otis Spann and Lafayette Leake on piano, Muddy Waters and Robert Lockwood on guitars, and Willie Dixon on bass – and the set features the tracks "Born Blind", "I Wonder Why", "This Is My Apartment", "Cool Disposition", "I Know What Love Is All About", "Too Close Together", "Keep It To Yourself", and "Don't Lose Your Eye".

Sonny Boy WilliamsonReal Folk Blues ... CD
Chess, Early 60s. Used ... $2.99
Not as folksy as you might think from the title – thanks to a really powerful presentation by Sonny Boy Williamson! The style here has echoes of Bo Diddley or Jimmy Reed's sense of rhythm – a more upbeat and electrified Chicago approach than Chess was serving up a decade before – obviously influenced by the strength of R&B, but also still presented with a sound that's stripped-down and raw enough to be called blues. Players on the sessions include Matt Murphy and Luther Tucker on guitars, Willie Dixon on bass, Otis Spann on piano, and Lafayette Leake on organ – and titles include "One Way Out", "Too Young To Die", "Trust My Baby", "Peach Tree", "Down Child", "Bring It On Home", "Too Old To Think", and "Got To Move".

Charles McPhersonBebop Revisited! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1965. Used ... $8.99
Bebop is alive and well in this classic 60s set by McPherson – blowing hard here in a Bird-esque mode on alto, but also with some of the soulfulness of Jackie McLean during the 50s. The group features Carmell Jones on trumpet, Barry Harris on piano, Nelson Boyd on bass, and Al Heath on drums – and titles include "Variations On A Blues By Bird", "Wail", "Hot House", and "Nostalgia".

✨✧ VariousSaint Etienne Present Songs For The Carnegie Deli ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Saint Etienne have brought us a number of wonderful compilations over the years – both in this format for Ace Records, and their work on their own great Croydon Municipal label – yet as much as we've loved all those others, we may well love this one the best – as it's a sublime blend of 60s soul, tear-stained pop, and cool numbers with a New York sort of sound! The focus is mostly on tracks from the mid 60s – and the work here often feels like the special sort of tracks the Brill Building talents might have been working on into the night, before stepping down to the Carnegie Deli for a snack – the kind of special songs that were often too sophisticated to make the charts, but which stand out all these many years later as true moments of genius from the 60s. As usual with a Saint Etienne set, there's a huge amount here we've never heard before – all given proper presentation by Ace Records, along with a full booklet of notes. Titles include "Night Hawk" by The Valli Boys, "Deep Dark Secret" by Dee Sharp, "Up On The Bridge" by The Chiffons, "Don't" by Marva Josie, "I'm Your Man" by Chuck Jackson, "Boy You Love Me" by Joan Moody, "Catch Me In The Meadow" by The Tradewinds, "He's A Lover" by Tutti Hill, "Let's Stop Fooling Ourselves" by Eddie Jones, "Is This The Way To Treat A Girl" by The Hesitations, "Summer's Comin In" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, and "Park Avenue" by Lou Johnson.

✨✧ VariousWindy City Blues – The Transition – 1935 to 1953 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Nighthawk, Late 30s/1940s/Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pivotal years of the Chicago blues scene – a time when the city was moving from rural influences to electric modes! That great span of work is presented here beautifully – in a set of tracks that begins in the mid 30s and end in the mid 50s – tracing an evolution that would not only go on to transform the music, but also have a huge impact on other styles for decades to come! The set features a 16 tracks in all – including "Please Don't" by Johnny Shines, "Fishin Blues" by Tony Hollins, "Down Behind The Rise"by Guitar Pete Franklin, "Black Spider Blues" by Robert Lockwood, "Sunnyland" by Sonny Boy Williamson, "Prowlin Nighthawk" by Robert Lee McCoy, "Easy Ridin Mama" by Washboard Sam, and "Sweet To Mama" by State Street Boys. CD features 8 more bonus tracks – mostly from the mid 50s – by Willie Nix, Floyd Jones, John Brim, and others! CD

Wes MontgomeryBody & Soul – Recorded Live At Ronnie Scott's Club ... CD
Jazz House (UK), 1964. Used ... $8.99
Rare work from Wes Montgomery – a UK live date from the mid 60s, and one that features Wes working with the Stan Tracey trio! The set's got a similar open feel to the legendary Live At Jorgies set – and like that one, this recording really allows you to hear Wes open up in a grittier way than you might have heard on studio sessions of the time! Tracey's piano grooves in a surprisingly soulful way – and the rest of the trio features Rick Laird on bass and Ronnie Stephenson on drums – on titles that include "Wes Easy Blues", "Sonny Boy", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Body & Soul", and "Broadway".

✨✧ Howard McGheeLife Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite an unusual album for trumpeter Howard McGhee – one that has the famous bop trumpeter working in a sweet "with strings" format – ala similar 50s sessions on Verve! Frank Hunter handles the larger group here – working the strings with some nice touches that go way past just sleepy orchestrations – into a realm of playful passages that help coax some quite unfamiliar sounds from Howard's horn! The approach is quite different than some of McGhee's more seminal sides, but is also a great illustration of this under-acknowledge side of his talents – and a voice that definitely seems to echo some of his personal struggles at the time. Titles include "Sonny Boy", "The Thrill Is Gone", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries", and "My Sin". CD

Flip WilsonCowboys & Colored People ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Hip work from Flip Wilson – an early album on Atlantic Records, issued before his bit TV fame – and a set that's got exactly the kind of edgey vibe you might expect from the title! The set was captured live in a small club, and Wilson's got a very wide appeal in his presentation – that kind of warmth and charisma that made him a very important force in breaking the boundaries between audiences at the time – able to keep things interesting enough with maybe a wider societal range of topics than the personal humor of Bill Cosby, on routines that include "Staying On Too Long", "Midget", "Riot Suit", "Confidential Survey", "Cheap Hotel", and "Kids".

SkatalitesIndependence Ska & The Far East Sound – Original Ska Sounds From The Skatalites 1963 to 1965 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
Original ska sounds from the originators themselves – 20 incredible numbers by the Skatalites & friends – with many of their most essential recordings, and rare stunners, to boot! The period in focus here is the initial few years of The Skatalites as a bonafide band, but the principal players – including Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Lester Sterling, Jackie Mittoo and other legendary names – had been honing their craft together for years, backing a who's who of Jamiacan musical heavies from calypso, to mento, to jazz and beyond. No wonder they burst out of the gate with some of the tightest rhythms in the music history, but it's stunning to this day! Really one of the finest Soul Jazz compilations in years, with a wealth of great notes, too! Includes their uber-classic "Guns Of Navarone", "Suavito", "Russian Ska Fever", "El Pussycat Ska", "Tell Them Lord" with The Wailers, "Further East" and "King Solomon" – along with the rarer "Sudden Destruction" with Dizzy Johnson, "Coolie Boy" billed to Don Drummond and lots more.

VariousDaptone Gold 2 ... CD
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Live like a funky legend with this massively-stuffed Daptone Gold collection – filled with gems from one of the coolest, funkiest record labels of the past 20 years! The set features a few special tracks for the collection, plus some numbers from old Daptone 45s – making a full length debut here – plus lots more of the classic-styled cuts that make the label so great – some of the first and best of the new wave of funk that first broke on these shores at the end of the 90s – still handled by Daptone better than most! There's loads of deep soul vocals, hard funky drums, sweet guitar lines, keyboards, and other classic soul touches – and exclusive tracks include "Thunderclap" by The Dap Kings and "You Gotta Move" by Naomi Shelton – alongside other titles that include "Dirty Money" by Antibalas, "Luv Jones" by Charles Bradley & Larose Jackson, "Little Boys With Shiny Toys" by Sharon Jones, "Sinner" by Naomi Shelton, "The Traitor" by Menahan Street Band, "Witches Boogaloo" by Sugarman 3, "Unbroken Unshave" by Budos Band, "Look Closer" by Saun & Starr, "Strictly Reserved" by Charles Bradley, and "Out Of The Wilderness" by Como Mamas.
