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

De La SoulDe La Soul Is Dead ... CD
Tommy Boy, 1991. Used ... $6.99
The epic second De La Soul album – a slightly deeper record than the upbeat 3 Feet High And Rising, but to us it's just as irrefutably classic – and among the best hip hop full lengths ever! The trio is still working with Prince Paul, so despite the cover image and declaration of the end of the Daisy age, there's no shortage of humor and bouncing good time hip hop – if a turn tougher. To put it simply, this is one of the many reasons we look a the early 90s as the salad days of hip hop. With "Oodles Of O's", Talkin' Bout Hey Love", "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays", "Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa", "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)", "Keepin' The Faith", "Bitties In The BK Lounge", "Pass The Plugs" and, as was the style at the time, loads of funny skits.

Lou DonaldsonFried Buzzard ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Very Good ... $4.99
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.

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

✨✧ Les Jazz ModesMood In Scarlet ... CD
Dawn (Spain), 1956. Used ... $14.99
Cool reissue of a unique album by one of the oddest jazz groups ever. Les Jazz Modes was the brainchild of horn player Julius Watkins and tenor player Charlie Rouse (who was best known for his work with Monk). The two of them played tight chamber jazz lines with sort of a raw edge, and they added into the mix the soul jazz piano of Gildo Mahones, plus weird moody non-verbal backing by a female singer. The end result is a totally unique sound that's somewhere in between jazz and lounge, but which is probably more in the jazz camp, thanks to great soloing by Rouse. Tracks include "Bohemia", "Catch Her", "Hoo Tai", "Linda Delia", "Mood In Scarlet", and 2 bonus tracks! Reissued with the original cover, and 24 bit remastering, too. CD

Trudy PittsExcitement Of Trudy Pitts ... LP
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+ ... $69.99
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!)

20 years of inventive, profoundly soul and funk infused, floor shaking dance music from Henry Street Music – given a top shelf anniversary showcase in conjunction with BBE! Since first breaking ground in the mid 90s, Henry Street has been there for some of best dancefloor guru's of their day, including Todd Terry, DJ Duke, Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Kenny Dope, and Johnick to name but a few – with classic house rooted, but future ready grooves that stand the test the test of time. These tracks will continue to rock dancefloors until the end of days! The 3LP set includes 11 standout jams from the epic 5CD box set, with "The Bomb" (Kenny Dope Presents The Bucketheads 2), "The Funk Phenomena" (Armand Van Heldon Presents Old School Junkies), "Play The World by Jonick, "Snow Me The Way" (DK Sneak Presents The Polyester EP), "Walk 4 Me" (Robbie Tronco Presents Tronco Traxx), "Feelin' It (Rhythm Section Main Mix)" by Groove Culture feat Arnold Jarvis, "Feel The Thunder (Tommy Musto Mix)" by Stron Jay, "Byrdman's Revenge" (Mike Delgado PresentsThe Upstairs Lounge), "Like That" (Mike Rizzo Presents Tiger Blood, "Steal Your Love" by BQE and "D2-D2 (Timmy Register Shelter Mix)" by DJ Duke/Roland Clark.

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 ... $54.99 59.98
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!

✨✧ VariousOsunlade Presents Yoruba Records – 5 Years Later (Cinco Anos Despue) ... CD
Yoruba/Soul Jazz (UK), Early 2000s. Used 2CD ... $12.99
5 years' worth of music from one of the hippest imprints in 21st Century clubland – Osunlade's always-great Yoruba Records label, home to some of his greatest work ever! Yoruba's got a sound that really tops most of its dancefloor contemporaries – a soaring, spiritual approach to the groove that has made the company one of the few current labels to appeal to our ears trained on classics from the old days! All Yoruba numbers feature some contribution from Osunlade – writing, production, or performance – and the Yoruba sound is a warm blend of house rhythms and a range of global influences, one of the few times that such a mix comes off so well. The label's an offshoot of Soul Jazz Records – one of the London company's few efforts to get new music into the market – but given the fact that virtually everything Yoruba does is an instant classic, the mix is a great one – as you'll hear on this full length selection of tracks from the label. 2CD set features 20 tracks that include "Don't Change" by Erro, "Ochun's Arrival" by Osunlade, "The Way" by Ebbo, "Closer I Get (lounge mix)" by Marie St James, "Power To Conquer" by Latina Cafe, "Native Tongue" by Osunlade, "Love Made For Two (Hi-Perspective rmx)" by Santos, "Africa" by Osunlade, "Yemaya (Yoruba Soul rmx)" by Sin Palabras, "Feelin U (Yoruba Soul rmx)" by KB, "Breath Away (Hi Perspective rmx)" by Nadirah Shakoor, "Grand Masterplan (Yoruba Soul mix)" by Lotus & Strauss, and "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Nomumbah.

✨✧ Soul Center (Thomas Brinkmann)Soul Center ... CD
WvB Enterprises, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful sample based house and downtempo tracks from Thomas Brinkmann, the perfect soulful antidote to his cool electronic minimalist techno. These cuts are also quite minimal, but with an entirely different feel, one that wouldn't be out of place in a set filled with some of the moodier Moodymann tracks or parochial Theo Parrish numbers. Each cut is more or less based around one nicely chopped loop, with just the right dose of sputtering percussion tracks to elevate the more uptempo numbers into leftfield club territory and the more laidback cuts into a heavy lounge vibe. 8 tracks in all, including "Right/Sh!t", "That's Wild", "Let's Go", "Sweet", "Ain't No", "Party Time", "Walk With Me", and "P Shack Session".

✨✧ 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

Ernest Dawkins New Horizon EnsemblePrairie Prophet ... CD
Delmark, 2011. Used ... $7.99
A wonderful tribute to Fred Anderson and the creative sanctuary he provided in Chicago at his Velvet Lounge – done wonderfully by saxophonist Ernest Dawkins and his New Horizons Ensemble! The group brilliantly trades in soulful, melodious interplay and sharp left turns into abstractions and a freer improved interplay – truly wonderful stuff and a fitting tribute to spirit of both tradition and creative freedom that could be heard at the Velvet. The Ensemble features a pair of trumpets – courtesy Marquis Hill and Shaun Johnson – plus Steve Berry on trombone, Jeff Parker on guitar, Junius Paul on bass and Isaiah Spencer on drums. Titles include "Hymn For A Hip King", "Sketches", "Mal-Lester", "Shades Of The Prairie Project", "Baghdad Boogie", "Mesopotamia" and more. CD

✨✧ Ahmad JamalBut Not For Me – Ahmad Jamal Trio At The Pershing ... LP
Argo, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
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".

Etta JonesGreatest Hits ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A dozen 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, some of 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 You Are But A Dream", "If You Were Mine", "Reverse The Charges", "Fine & Mellow", "My Gentleman Friend", "Funny", "Love Is The Thing", and "I Miss You So".

✨✧ Yusef LateefLive Session – Dedication Series Vol XIII ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1964. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ E Parker McDougalBlues Tour ... LP
Grits, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the self-released LPs by a largely unkown Chicago tenor player, who follows along in the great tradition of players like Von Freeman, Cozy Eggleston or Vandy Harris. They may not be a household name, even to jazz fans, but on the south side here they're well know, plugging away on cold nights in small jazz lounges year after year. The playing on this album is fairly straight ahead, hard-hitting bop, and as you'd imagine from the title mostly bluesy, but has a great soulful edge, brought about largely by McDougal's full warm tone, like many great Windy City tenors. Soul jazz underground great George Freeman is featured on side 2 of the album, standing out on cuts like "For Cuz" and "Love Tap", and the rest of the group is rounded out with other great Chicago stalwarts Willie Pickens, Wilbur Campbell and Robert Shy.

✨✧ 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
