✨✧ James CarterLive At Baker's Keyboard Lounge ... CD
Warner, 2004. Used ... $7.99
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

John Johnson, Joel Selvin & Dick CamiPeppermint Twist – The Mob, The Music & The Most Famous Dance Club Of The 60s (hardcover) ... Book
Thomas Dunne, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99 25.99
You've no doubt read plenty about the way the mafia penetrated the music industry in the 50s and 60s – from record pressing to distribution to artist management and beyond – but you'll be hard-pressed to read a more lively account than this one – the story of the legendary Peppermint Lounge and its ties to the Genovese crime family! The club opened in the late 50s and closed by the mid 60s – but was a key part in rock and soul performance in New York City – and in addition to Joe Dee & The Starlighters, who recorded a famous album at the venue – the book also looks at a range of other artists too – but the main focus is on club runner Dick Cami and the way he built the business while also dealing with the mob. The authors worked closely with Cami – who provides plenty of lively stories – and the book is 289 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

Trudy PittsExcitement Of Trudy Pitts ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $79.99
Far and away the rarest album by soul jazz organ legend Trudy Pitts – and that's saying a lot for someone whose albums are all totally rare to begin with! This is a set that captures Trudy as she really existed back in the day – playing live in the jazz lounge scene of the Mid-Atlantic coast, recorded in a way that's much more open-ended and freewheeling than her studio work for Prestige! The record captures Trudy live at Club Baron in New York, and has the organist working in a trio with Bill Carney on drums and Wilbert Longmire on guitar – all grooving instrumentally, with none of the vocals of other records – on 4 long tracks that each run for more than 7 minutes! Titles include "Trudy N Blue", "Never My Love", and "WT Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing – very nice!)

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label DJ pressing. Cover has tape on the seams, adhesive remanants, and some wear. Labels have marker.)

✨✧ Jimmy McGriffOne Of Mine ... LP
Sue, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tightly grooving, jukebox thumping, hard wailing organ jazz from the great Jimmy McGriff – one of his best albums for the Sue label! Jimmy's got a sound here that's a lot rawer than earlier work – especially on the album's originals, like "Spindletop", "One Of Mine", "Blip Time", "Gospel Time", and "The Last Minute" – nice little numbers that cross the bridge between R&B and soul jazz with that heavy approach that always made Jimmy a favorite on the small combo lounge jazz scene of the time. Other tracks include "Teach Me Tonight", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Broadway". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover looks nice.)

✨✧ VariousLight On The Southside – Photographs Of Chicago Southside Nightlife 1975 to 1977 (hardcover book with 2LP set) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/2009. New Copy 2LP & Book ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the most beautiful record we've ever seen from the folks at The Numero Group – and that's saying a lot, given the quality of all their top-shelf releases! This beautiful edition features a hardcover book of vintage black and white photographs taken on Chicago's south side in the mid 70s – images of patrons and proprietors from long-lost nite spots that include Perv's House, Pepper's Hideout, The High Chaparral, and The Showcase Lounge – all the kind of clubs that were likely to feature the sort of Chicago funk and soul that Numero's been reissuing for the past few years! The images are amazing – a really rare look into the community that supported this sort of music – caught far far from the mainstream, in placed that were almost even private, compared to more well-travelled entertainment outlets. Photographs come from the collection of Michael Abramson – and are beautifully reproduced on LP-sized pages, in a book that also features some vintage flyers, posters, and business cards from the clubs! And if that's not enough, Numero also throws in some great notes of their own, and a bonus 2LP set with music that includes "I'm A Streaker Baby" by Arelean Brown, "No Better Time Than Now" by Ricky Allen, "The Same One" by Malcolm Simmons, "You Made Me Suffer" by Andrew Brown, "This Is My Prayer" by Lady Margo, "It's A Dream" by Little Ed & The Soundmasters Band, "I Sayed That" by Slim Willis Band, "Bring It Down Front" by Hugh Hawkins, "Womans Lib" by Lucille Spann, "Gimmie Some Of Yours" by Artie White, "Baby" by Walter Butterball Davis, "Is It Because I'm Black (inst)" by Syl Johnson, "Goose Walk" by Little Mack, "Young Blood" by Detroit Jr, "California Lady" by James Kinds & Stack, and "I Learned My Lesson" by Willie Davis. The albums are packaged in their own Numero-like cover – then nestled in a slipcover with the book – a hell of a sweet set at this price, and it also comes with an introduction by Nick Hornby!

✨✧ Koki Hanawa & Yusuke OgawaJapanese Jazz 1950s to 1980s (paperback) ... Book
Rittor (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An essential resource for fans of rare jazz albums – an ultra-cool discography that's done in the same style as other Japanese books on American music – but which focuses on rare bits from Japan! Like other volumes of this type, this one specially selects the coolest of the cool – really standout records from some of the best decades in Japanese jazz – all records that are even harder to than American or Brazilian rarities! Each title is presented with a full color cover image, original date, song titles, and personnel – although some of the last two pieces of information is in Japanese, given the origin of the material. And knowing the titles that we have heard in the book, we can definitely say that the authors are right on the money in their choices – as they've picked some of the best hardbop, soul jazz, funky fusion, and other styles from Japan – with some especially wonderful bits from the 60s and 70s. The book features sections on modern jazz, jazz rock, fusion, vocal, bossa nova, and lounge rarities from Japan – and it appears to feature a few hundred records in all! And if you're not the type that shells out big cash for rare records, the book even seems to have a legend to indicate if you can find the title on CD – very helpful, given how many Japanese jazz CDs we carry here at Dusty Groove. 229 pages, softcover.

✨✧ Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De BamakoLes Ambassadeurs Du Motel De Bamako ... CD
Sterns, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Hardly the kind of group you'd hear in an American motel during the 70s – no cheesy lounge jazz here – and instead, a crucially important group on the West African scene, with great vocals by a young Salif Keita! The group have a style that nicely encompasses other influences from up north and the other side of the Atlantic – not in a cover band sort of way, but with careful ears for elements borrowed from Latin music, soul, jazz, and other styles – all woven into a rich tapestry of sound that's heavy on sweet guitar lines and cascading rhythms. There's also some very nice saxophone passages at times, which deepen the soul of the music – and the CD features 2CDs worth of material from the group's prime years, including a few previously unissued tracks. Titles include "Mali Denou", "Sabar", "Ray M'Bote", "Radio Mali Broadcast", "Djandio", "Mana Mana", "Tiecolom-Ba", "Wara", and "Djoula". CD

Ahmad JamalBut Not For Me – Ahmad Jamal Trio At The Pershing ... CD
Argo/Chess, 1958. Used ... $7.99
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".

CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
An excellent little groover from that great period where CTI was affiliated with A&M, this record is the kind of pop/jazz/easy listening crossover stuff that's been such a hit with the loungecore fans over the years. Don Sebesky handled the arrangements – and players include Herbie Hancock, Ray Barretto, Romeo Penque, and Grady Tate – all playing nicely mellow jazzy tracks, with a flute-heavy sound. Includes the tracks "Try a Little Tenderness", "Trust In Me", "Cigarettes & Coffee", and "Buckaroo". LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
18 soulful tracks from Etta Jones – a unique singer who managed to straddle the worlds of jazz and blues, without giving short shrift to either! The selection brings together tracks that Etta recorded for the Prestige label in the 60s, and which were released as singles – none of them really crossover or chart singles, but some of Etta's strongest work of the decade, the sort that got spun over and over again on jukeboxes in smaller jazz lounges in America's cities. Titles include "Old Folks", "Don't Go To Strangers", "If I Had You", "Hurry Home", "Just Friends", "In The Dark", "Nature Boy", "The Gal From Joes", "Love Walked In", and "Unchained Melody". CD

✨✧ Lyman Woodard OrganizationLive At JJ's Lounge 1974 ... CD
Uuquipleu, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare live performance from the legendary Lyman Woodard Organization – captured here at the height of their powers in the 70s! The Organization has a really unique approach to their groove – one that starts in jazz, but moves quickly into funk – with a spirit that you'd find in other 70s groups like Funk Inc or The Nineteenth Whole – both of which have the same soulful local spirit as Lyman's mighty group! Woodard himself is a wonderful organist – playing with these freewheeling lines that open the Hammond up strongly way past the Jimmy Smith generation, with a groove that's often soaring, but still tightly rhythmic too – a hypnotic vamp that's perfect for jamming tracks like these. Other group members are great too – and include Ron English on guitar, Norma Bell on alto sax, Lorenzo Brown on percussion, and Sundiata on congas – a very hip lineup that makes things really cook on the set! The recording was originally done for radio, and there's a few announcer bits – but that professional setting also makes the album sound way better than just a dodgy ol' local tape might. Titles include "Organ Interlude", "Kimba", "On Your Mind", "Last Tango In Paris", "You Make Me Feel Brand New", and "Cheeba". CD
