✨✧ VariousSoul Lounge Vol 12 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2015. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest values in contemporary soul music – and a series we can still highly recommend even after the course of eleven previous volumes! The 3CD package is overflowing with great tracks far from the mainstream of soul – the kind of current, underground tracks that you'll hear from only a select few on both sides of the Atlantic – with an especially strong focus on UK soul artists here, given that the Dome Records label puts out some of the best of the London scene! There's plenty here to love – including a number of tracks that haven't been on CD before – and titles include "Sleepwalkers (Opolopo rmx)" by Jarrod Lawson, "Lowdown (Ski Oakenfull rmx)" by Incognito with Mario Biondi & Chaka Khan, "People (DJ Spen & Gary Hudgkins rmx)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Just For One Day" by Imaani, "Music & Its Magical Way" by Jarrod Lawson, "Soul Town (Nigel Lowis rmx)" by Ola Onabule, "Deja Vu" by Angela Johnson, "Bridge Over Troubled Water (acoustic)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Believe Me" by Anthony David, "Ever After (Jiva rmx)" by Seek, "Touch My Body" by Cooly's Hot Box, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Diplomats Of Soul, "Major Bossa" by Khari Cabral Simmons with Sabrina Malheiros, "Change" by Full Flava with Joy Rose, and "Every Time I Turn Around" by Makeda. 40 tracks in all!

Dennis CoffeyHot Coffey In The D – Burnin' At Morey Baker’s Showplace Lounge ... CD
Resonance, 1968. New Copy ... On January 13, 2017
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

Dave Hoekstra, with Chaka Khan & Paul NatkinPeoples Place – Soul Food Restaurants and Reminiscences from the Civil Rights Era to Today (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago Review Press, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A totally wonderful little book – one that traces the relationship between culture, politics, and soul food during the Civil Rights era – a long legacy that continues to have strong local power all these many years later! The book is very lovingly done – rich in history, and filled with full color photographs, both contemporary and vintage – as author Dave Hoekstra surveys key soul food emporiums from cities that include Memphis, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington, New York, Detroit, and Atlanta – with individual chapters on Ben's Chili Bowl, Sylvia's Restaurant, Baker's Keyboard Lounge, Dooky Chase's, Sweetie Pie's, Africanne On Maine, Original Soul Vegetarian, New Bethel Baptist Church Kitchen, Ruby's Restaurant, Marvin, The Four Way, and many other storied sites – just our memory of which is enough to make our stomachs' rumble!

Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... CD
Cadet/Universal, 1965. Used ... $13.99
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", "Summertime" – and "The Thang", which have a rawer feel than most of his Blue Note stuff.

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

Don Julian & The LarksShorty The Pimp ... CD
Southbound/Ace (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer funky reissue of this rare soundtrack by Don Julian & The Larks! You probably already know Don Julian's funky work from the Savage soundtrack, and this one's just as good – with even more cuts than the original, including a lot of tasty soul cuts and covers with a deep soulful sound. The plot of the film has Don and The Larks playing a cool little lounge funk band, caught up in sort of a mini gang war between 2 thugs who want to manage them. One of the thug's named "Shorty The Pimp", and his name provides Don with the funky title to the great theme of the film, which is a very tasty groover. Other tracks have the band covering other current soul hits, and playing some extra-dope instrumentals with a nice hard sound. Titles include "Schoolin & Foolin", "Vato's Brew", "Brother What It Is", "Super Slick", "Inner City Blues", "If There's A Hell Below", and "Message From A Black Man". On CD only! CD

✨✧ VariousYet Mo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

VariousReturn Of Mod Jazz – Mod Jazz Vol 5 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Get ready to throw away your jukebox – because this tasty set has all the grooves you'd ever want, all packed in one tasty CD! The sound of Mod Jazz is the sound of the 60s – a blistering blend of Hammond organ, soulful vocals, swinging rhythms, and a finger-snapping assortment of various instrumental modes – all brought together from unlikely sources into one hip-stepping, bad-walking collection! As with previous volumes, the set list here is really outta sight – and blends together a few familiar numbers with overlooked gems from rare singles and obscure LPs – many by artists that we know and love, but who we didn't know could cook up a groove this nicely. There's a real speaker-blowing quality to the whole thing, too – the kind of soulful, thumping styles that would have made this CD feel right at home in a southside jazz lounge back in the day! 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Beaver" by Clarence Armstrong, "Banana Peels" by Johnny Otis, "Hide Out" by The Hideaways, "Bell Bottoms" by Joe Swift's Internationals, "East Side" by Hank Jacobs, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "El Pussy Cat" by Mongo Santamaria, "Summertime" by George Benson Quartet, "Sack O Woe" by Ray Bryant, "Them Blues" by Billie Poole, "Sweet Lover No More" by Gene McDaniels, "Wild Bird" by Googie Rene, and "Get It" by The Swinging Tomatoes.

✨✧ Fred AndersonOn The Run – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fred's not on the run, he's right at home – working at his own Velvet Lounge in Chicago, and blowing with the relaxed, open vibe that has made his performances at the club the stuff of legend! There's a great linkage here of styles from a few Chicago generations – the proud-toned tenors of the postwar years, and the freer modes of the AACM – played in trio formation by Anderson on tenor, with Tatsu Aoki on bass and Hamid Drake on drums. Most tracks are quite extended, and Anderson's got a great way of skirting the edges of freedom – keeping a soulful focus on his horn on the best moments, with echoes of Johnny Griffin and John Gilmore in his sound. Titles include "Ladies In Love", "On The Run", "Smooth Velvet", "Tatsu's Groove", and "Hamid's On Fire". CD

✨✧ Tony Hatch & OthersEssential Tony Hatch – Grooves, Hits, & Themes (3CD set) ... CD
Pulse (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great little set – featuring 3 styles of work by Brit pop legend Tony Hatch! One disc features Hatch doing instrumental work from the 60s – lively renditions of instrumentals and covers, including a few numbers that have gone onto be loungecore classics – tracks like "Soul Coaxing", "Beautiful In The Rain", "Music To Watch Girls By", "Wives & Lovers", "Bedazzled", "Light My Fire", "Birds", "Love Is Blue", "Forget Him", "I Know A Place", and "Crosstown Commuter". Next up is a disc that includes pop hits written or arranged by Tony for other artists – some of the cream of British pop in the 60s! Tracks on that disc include "Downtown", "Call Me", "Don't Sleep In The Subway", and "I Couldn't Live Without You" by Petula Clark; "Lonely Without You" by Julie Grant; "Sugar & Spice" by The Searchers; "Trinity Street" by Two Of Each; "Messing About On The River" by Josh Macrae; "The Two Of Us" by Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent; "Major To Minor" by The Settlers; and "You've Gotta Be Loved" by The Montanas. Last up is the most exciting – a whole disc of TV themes from the 60s and 70s – a genre that Hatch was great at, and really handled well! Tunes on that disc include "Sportsnight", "Ben Casey", "Emmerdale Farm", "Perry Mason", "Crossroads", "The Champion", "Man Alive", "Theme From Who Dun It", "Ghost Squad", "The Naked City", and "Mr & Mrs". 60 tracks, 3CDs – what a deal!

✨✧ Ahmad JamalBut Not For Me – Ahmad Jamal Trio At The Pershing ... LP
Argo, 1958. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ Bob PernaBob Perna By Request ... LP
Rella, Mid 70s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bob Perna was a Chicago trumpter who led a small combo during the 70s out in the western suburbs. He wasn't the greatest player to come out of the city, but his group had a swinging electric sound – thanks to piano work by Danny Long – and they played a crowd-pleasing mix of styles they called "contemporary jazz". What that meant was that the group was a few notches above a lounge group, and could swing equally well in electric soulful numbers and mellow ballads. The former are the best, and include "Ole", "Solutura", and "Filthy McNasty" – which are clearly the standout cuts on the record. Not bad, and with an excellent gatefold cover that tells Bob's story and has a lot of nice 70s photos! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light edge wear.)
