Soul ScratchPushing Fire (with download) ... LP
Colemine, 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 22.98
An absolute stormer from Soul Scratch – a contemporary combo from the SoCal scene doing the legacy of the late 60s/early 70s raw funky soul style proud! Both the band name and album titles are appropriate – we wouldn't call it "truth in advertising", just straight up truth – with a genuine depth of soul in both the songs and performance, played with incredible energy in the more fiery number, but with a sure hand on the more tender numbers, too. Singer Dale Spollett can wail with the best of them, and the band has real firepower in their arsenal. The horns and rhythm section are stunningly tight, or have a loose swagger when the song calls, and there some tasty guitar, too. Includes the righteous opener "Pacified", "Look How Far We've Come", "Odessa Heat", the sweet little centerpiece ballad "Kiss Me In The Morning", "Be Kind", "Fireside Lounge", "Empty Cup", "It's Not Over", "Thank You" and more.

✨✧ Dr JohnSun, Moon, & Herbs ... LP
Atco, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
Mac really steps out on this one – pushing past his usual hip studio take on New Orleans soul, to a more expansive style that includes performances by a host of surprise guests like Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, PP Arnold, Graham Bond, and Doris Troy. That loping, trippy groove of John's is still firmly in place, shifted slightly – kind of a New Orleans meets post 60s London style. There's also a really unique, kind of mellow Cajun folk blues thing going on, and it balances a lot of really disparate elements in a fairly unified feel. It's sort of like Captain Beefheart playing lounge piano in a swamp – an ambitious style that you really have to respect and appreciate. Titles include "Craney Crow", "Black John The Conqueror", "Zu Zu Mamou", and "Pots On Fiyo" "Where Ya At Mule", "Familiar Reality", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousYet Mo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great mix of funky jazz, jazzy funk, and funky soul – all pulled from the Atlantic catalog of the 60s, and including some very tasty numbers that were only ever issued as funky 45s! The set's one of the nicest in the great Mod Jazz series on Ace, and it's the only one to feature Atlantic material, which rarely ever gets the same funky treatment as other labels from the 60s. Titles include "The Sidewinder" by Tamiko Jones & Herbie Mann, "Do It To Death" by Jackie Ivory, "Jet Set" by Dave Pike, "Fever" by Esther Phillips, "Jam Up Twist" by Tommy Ridgely, "Sticks & Stones (part 1)" by Gene Ludwig, "Bloodshot" by Hubert Laws, "Sombrero Sam" by Charles Lloyd, "The Foolkiller" by Mose Allison, "One Note Samba" by MJQ & Laurindo Almeida, "It's A Funky Thing – Right On (part 1)" by Herbie Mann, "Watermelon Man Ska" by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, "Trese Lobos" by Mark III Trio, "You're The Boss" by LaVern Baker & Jimmy Ricks, "Burnin Coal" by Les McCann, and "Twist City" by Matthew Gee & Johnny Griffin. 26 cuts in all – and like finding a jukebox that's lain dormant in a jazz lounge for 30 years!

Dennis CoffeyHot Coffey In The D – Burnin' At Morey Baker's Showplace Lounge ... CD
Resonance, 1968. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
An incredible set of funk from the legendary Dennis Coffey – an unissued live performance from the hip Detroit scene of the late 60s – featuring Coffey's amazing guitar with the Hammond of Lyman Woodard! Together, the two are a pair of funky terrors – steeped in all the best soul and jazz styles that the Motor City had to offer at the time, but also not afraid to trip out, too – so that there's a psychedelic funk influence going on – as the group stretches out and opens up in ways that are even more wild than Coffey's later albums on Westbound! Drummer Melvin Davis completes the trio, and the whole thing's a monstrous jam that not only more than lives up to its promise – but which also has a much heavier, hipper feel than you'd guess from the title and cover art. Tracks include long takes on "Fuzz", "Maiden Voyage", "Casanova", "The Look Of Love", "Wade In The Water", "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", and "The Big D". CD

✨✧ James CarterLive At Baker's Keyboard Lounge ... CD
Warner, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A helluva set from saxophonist James Carter – smoking numbers recorded live in Detroit at Baker's – featuring some of the hottest soloing we've heard on a recently recorded set! It's an all around great showcase for Carter and guests like David Murray and Johnny Griffin (who both blow some astoundingly strong tenor) plus Detroit allstars like Dwight Adams on trumpet, Larry Smith on alto, Ken Cox on drums and others. Tracks include Oscar Pettiford's "Tricotism", Jimmy Forrest's "Soul Street", Eddie Harris's "Freedom Jazz Dance", Don Byas's "Free And Easy" and others. Great stuff – and a wonderful return to form from James Carter! CD

✨✧ Three SoulsDangerous Dan Express ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great little bit of lost Chicago grooviness. Not only is this a fantastic record by a tight group led by the legendary reedman Sonny Cox, but the cover and title bear reference to the Dan Ryan Expressway, which ripped through the south side like a scar in the early 60's. The cover's got the band crouching by the side of the road, with cars whizzing by to illustrate the "dangerous" side of the title. The music is excellent tight organ/alto/guitar jazz, as was being played in the best lounges of the city at the time. A few great originals, and some excellent jazz standards. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ramsey Lewis Trio & Jean DuShonYou Better Believe Me ... LP
Argo, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Ramsey Lewis trio (with Young and Holt) backs up this sweet Chicago jazz singer in a nice set of soulful tracks recorded for Chess in the mid 60's. Nice laid back lounge jazz type of groove, with a good assortment of lesser-known tracks, and very sensitive accompaniment. Cuts include "Goodbye Lover, Hello Friend", "It Had Better Be Tonight", "You'd Better Believe Me", "Corcovado", and "Night Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label Argo pressing. Cover has light wear and aging, with notes in pen on back.)

✨✧ VariousYou Heard It Here First – 26 Classics From The 50s & 60s In Their Original Pre-hit Versions ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A novel idea for a stylistically rich compilation of classic tunes – in most cases far lesser known late 50s and 60s original (or if not always original, very early) versions of songs made famous by the superstars to come! The songs range from uptempo soul, to early rock, to loungey groovers, to gutbuckety blues – and each track brings pure freshness back into many songs you probably never need to hear again in their more famous incarnations!!! Includes "Tainted Love" by Gloria Jones, "Suspicious Minds" by Mark James, "Wild Thing" by The Wild Things, "I Fought The Law" by The Crickets, "Louie Louie" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs, "A Groovy Kind Of Love" by The Mindbenders, "Something Stupid" by Carson & Gaile and more. 26 tracks in all.

✨✧ Yusef LateefLive Session – Dedication Series Vol XIII ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1964. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
Some of the most amazing work that Yusef Lateef ever recorded! All tracks were recorded on June 26, 1964 – at Pep's Lounge in Philly, and the group's a hard-wailing batch of soulful players that are one of the tightest that Lateef ever worked with! The 2LP set features Lateef's incredible Live At Pep's album on disc one, plus a full disc of other material that was recorded during the same set, but not issued until the time of this 1978 release. Some of the tracks have since appeared on CD – but combined with the Club Date LP issued around the same time, this set forms kind of a trilogy of material from that fantastic date. The group features some amazing piano from Mike Nock – vamping and grooving along at a pace that brings out the best in Lateef's reeds and the shimmering trumpet of Richard Williams – and the record combines all of Lateef's exotic work on flute and saxes with a groove that you'll hardly hear on other albums. Titles include "Listen To The Wind", "Number Seven", "Twelve Tone Blues", "The Magnolia Triangle", "The Weaver", and "Sister Mamie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

✨✧ Ahmad JamalBut Not For Me – Ahmad Jamal Trio At The Pershing ... LP
Argo, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
Groundbreaking work from the legendary Ahmad Jamal – not just in his own career, but in live jazz in general! The album's a classic recording of Jamal's trio with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums – captured at the Pershing Lounge on the south side of Chicago, where Jamal was clearly wowing the crowd with his amazing talents on the piano. The groove here is sublimely fluid and soulful – clearly the next wave of expression on the piano in the 50s, and as important to the Chicago scene as Bill Evans was to that of New York at the time. The recording quality is wonderful – clear enough to capture the subtleties of Crosby's amazing bass, and the lightly tippling sound of Fournier's drums – and titles include a classic extended reading of "Poinciana", plus "What's New", "But Not For Me", and "No Greater Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Silver label pressing. Cover has sticker remnants on front, a note on front & back, and a sticker on back. Label has a sticker.)
