VariousSoul Lounge 9 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2012. Used 3CD ... $9.99
40 tracks, at one mighty nice price – and a killer entry in the long-running Soul Lounge series! Think "soul" more than "lounge" – and get past the Hed Kandi-like image on the cover – because this stuff is the real deal – a great collection of Neo Soul gems pulled from the rich catalog of Dome Records – plus excellent tracks from other contemporary labels too! There's plenty to love here if you love our Neo Soul section – and we dare say that the track selection here is as good as we would have chosen, were we to put out such a set. Titles include "Nights" by Sy Smith with Rahsaan Patterson, "You Got Love" by Kindred The Family Soul, "Like This" by Avery Sunshine, "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" by Gregory Porter, "Get Myself Together (souldynamic rmx)" by Angela Johnson, "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)" by Incognito, "In The Thick Of It" by Sunburst Band with Angela Johnson, "This Is What You Are" by Mario Biondi, "Sweetness" by Carleen Anderson, "Warm Human" by Heston, "Never In Your Sun" by Khari Cabral Simmons with India Arie, "Body Language" by Anthony David, and "Teardrops" by Avani.

VariousSoul Lounge Volume 12 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2015. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
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!

✨✧ VariousSoul Lounge Volume 13 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2017. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of contemporary soul tracks – music from both sides of the Atlantic, served up in a well-priced collection that brings together the best of the British and American underground soul scenes! A good deal of the work here is from the catalog of the Dome label in the past decade or so – an imprint who continues to be one of the few stronger indie labels dedicated to discovering and properly presenting the best in soul music – something that's becoming more and more important in recent years, as so many new artists only issue digital releases. This 3CD pacakge is a great reminder of how wonderful it can be to hear tracks like these on a proper CD release – and the whole thing's a treasure trove throughout – with 40 tracks that include "Sky (Ski Oakenfull rmx)" by Bluey, "Spiritual Eyes (Young Pulse & ATN rmx)" by Jarrod Lawson, "Feel Like Dancing" by Heston, "Need You Now" by Avery Sunshine, "Looking For" by Eric Roberson, "You Know Just When" by Dennis Taylor, "Morning Love" by Simon Law, "To Prove My Love" by Incognito, "Hurts Like Hell" by Angela Johnson, "Let's Do It Right" by Imaani, "Something More" by Makeda, "Like Rain" by Greg Dean with Natalie Weiss & Amber Iman, "Never Letting Go" by Frank McComb, "Crazy" by Rahsaan Patterson, "Only Be Me" by Conya Doss, "Surrender" by Seek, "The Real Thing" by Avani, "People Of Tomorrow" by Citrus Sun, and "Take It" by Cooly's Hot Box.

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

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! Hoekstra brings the same care to the subject that he's used in his many years of newspaper work – and the book also features an introduction from Chaka Khan, new photos from Paul Natkin, and even a few recipes from the restaurants too. 224 pages, full color, hardcover.

Soul ScratchPushing Fire ... CD
Colemine, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
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.

Father Tom VaughnMotor City Soul ... LP
RCA, 1967. Sealed ... $9.99
Tom Vaughn has the unique distinction of being both a jazz musician and a priest – one of a few Catholic jazz lovers who made a name for themselves during the 50s and 60s, and probably the most famously recorded of all of them. Tom's a piano player with a touch of churchy soul, and not a bad little approach to the keys – recorded here live at Baker's Keyboard Lounge in Detroit, his hometown, in a set of Les McCann-y numbers that come off a lot better than you might think! Titles include "Girl Talk", "Motor City Soul", "The Girl From Ipanema", "The Party's Over", and "So What". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is a bit shopworn, with small tears at the top and some marker on back. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Hammond funk and soul jazz from Chris Hazleton and his Boogaloo 7 – recorded live at the Green Lady Lounge in Kansa City! Soul Jazz Fridays is a timeless joy any damn day, the Hazleton riffing mightly on B-3, with a wonderful group – including Matt Hopper on guitar, Danny Rojas and Pat Conway on drums and percussion, Nick Howell On trumpet, Nick Rowland and Brett Jackson on saxes. They're equally wonderful on the Hazleton originals as on the killer trio of covers, and titles includes "Hip Shaker" (with some killer solos by Hazleton & Hopper) , "Onsaya Joy", "Theme For Theo", "The Grand Avenue Get-Down", "Retlemecaf" and a really cool, genuinely soulful cover of Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie".

Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... CD
Cadet/Universal, 1965. Used ... $11.99
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

Prestige, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Gator Tail and Brother Jack crack it long and lean, with lots of hard soul jazz tracks that have the both of them wailing on their respective instruments. There's some nice originals here, including "Gil's Pills", "Snake Crawl", and "Backtrack". The set also includes a few "late night" moments, with soulful ballad cuts in a deep tenor vein, but most of the tracks are pretty short and lively, with a good lounge jazz groove to them.

Jimmy McGriffOne Of Mine ... LP
Sue, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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

Bobby PierceNew York ... LP
Muse, 1973. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A very hip record from Bobby Pierce – a mixture of jazz and soul, with a laidback feeling that makes the set groove like a late night session at some little New Jersey lounge at the end of the soul jazz era. Players are all great – and include Frank Strozier, Billy Mitchell, Ted Dunbar, and Freddie Waits – but the real star of the set is Pierce, who plays organ, electric piano, and celeste – and also vocalizes on about half the album's tracks, singing in a roughly jazz style that really fits the mood of the set. Titles include "New York", "Children Are The Creator's Messengers", "Hooray For The Children", "Too High", and "Sleep Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don Julian & The LarksShorty The Pimp ... CD
Southbound/Ace (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Shirley ScottTalkin' Verve – Shirley Scott ... CD
Verve, 1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Groovy organ from the great Shirley Scott – and an excellent selection of tunes that shows a side of hers that's not often represented on the reissue market! The tracks on the set are pulled from Shirley's years at Impulse and Verve, and most of them feature her work on the Hammond out front of swinging big arrangements from Oliver Nelson – easily one of the most soulful arrangers she ever worked with, and a perfect talent to accompany her breezy soulful style. Other tracks feature work by Gary McFarland – equally well suited to bring out another side of Shirley's playing – and the whole set's a dreamy batch of soulful loungey organ tunes that's really great! Titles include "Feelin Good", "Taj Mahal", "A Shot In The Dark", "Blue Bongo", "Good Lookin Out", "Make Someone Happy", "Heat Wave", and "On The Trail". CD

✨✧ Three SoulsDangerous Dan Express ... LP
Argo, 1964. Used ... 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

VariousReturn Of Mod Jazz – Mod Jazz Vol 5 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 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.

Lyman Woodard OrganizationLive At JJ's Lounge 1974 ... CD
Uuquipleu, 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Delmark, 2000. Used ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)
