John Johnson, Joel Selvin & Dick CamiPeppermint Twist – The Mob, The Music & The Most Famous Dance Club Of The 60s (hardcover) ... Book 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

Don Julian & The LarksShorty The Pimp ... CD CD format
Southbound/Ace (UK), 1972. Used ... $9.99
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

Les Ambassadeurs Du Motel De BamakoLes Ambassadeurs Du Motel De Bamako ... CD CD format
Sterns, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
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

New De La SoulDe La Soul Is Dead ... LP LP format
Tommy Boy, 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

New VariousLight On The Southside – Photographs Of Chicago Southside Nightlife 1975 to 1977 (hardcover book with 2LP set) ... LP LP format
Numero, Late 70s/2009. New Copy 2LP & Book ... Temporarily 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!

New Koki Hanawa & Yusuke OgawaJapanese Jazz 1950s to 1980s (paperback) ... Book 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.

New Corey WilkesKind Of Miles – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD CD format
Katalyst, 2011. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Trumpeter Corey Wilkes and a great group pay homage to Miles Davis at Chicago's legendary Velvet Lounge in May of 2010! Miles' spirit and soul are in each note here, but the group doesn't set out to simply cover the material – these are fresh, yet deeply influenced perspectives. It kicks off with a slow-building take on the Jerome Kern-penned "Yesterdays" that feels like Miles' late 60s style, and it works really well. The pieces are each pretty spacious and it's great that way – you don't want 'em to end! Kevin Nabors is on tenor, Greg Spero on keys, Junius Paul on bass, Xavier Breaker on drums and Kahil El Zabar on percussion. Includes "Yesterdays", "It's About That Time", "Tutu" and "So What/In It's Right Place" – running 15 to 26+ minutes each. CD

Tony Hatch & OthersEssential Tony Hatch – Grooves, Hits, & Themes (3CD set) ... CD CD format
Pulse (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 3CD ... $19.99
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!

CTI/A&M, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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

New Fred AndersonOn The Run – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD CD format
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

New Lyman Woodard OrganizationLive At JJ's Lounge 1974 ... CD CD format
Uuquipleu, 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

New Jemeel Moondoc, William Parker, Hamid DrakeNew World Pygmies Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Eremite, 2000. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful follow-up to the incredible New World Pygmies set from saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc and bassist William Parker – one that not only features a double-length set of work, but also includes some guest drums from Hamid Drake on half the set! The core energy still really comes from the Moondoc/Parker pairing, though – a wonderful association that stands brilliantly here as some of the most soulful improvisation from the time – rich in spirit, strong in focus, and almost always swinging – with a balance between freedom and straightness that we really love. Tracks are all quite long – and CD one features a performance from Madison, while CD two features a Chicago set at the Velvet Lounge, with Drake on trap drums. Moondoc plays alto and soprano sax, and in addition to bass, Parker also plays bombard and gralle – on titles that include "Spirit House", "O'Neal's Porch", "New World Pygmies", "Blues For Katie", and "Three Clay Pots".

Four very cool groovers from Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – pressed up here on a limited edition 7" EP, with two tracks that have never been issued before! "Roma Bene" is represented by a rare "shake" version that has some fuzzy guitar that trips out nicely over upbeat grooves – and "La Pecora Nera" gets a cool vocal take from Rocky Roberts, who sings soulfully over the mod rhythms! Side two features a new edit of "Rosamor", sung by Juca Chavez – and the sublime "Soft & Smooth" too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

New GazzaraBossa Lounge Experience ... CD CD format
Irma (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mighty keyboards from Francesco Gazzara – easily one of our favorite Irma Records artists from years back – still sounding pretty darn great here in a nicely mature setting! The album's got a bit of the bossa promised in the title, but also has a wider-ranging groove too – echoes of older keyboard modes, mixed with bits of jazz funk at times – all handled by Gazzara on a range of Fender Rhodes, Hammond, Korg, and other keys – with core bass and drums, and additional help from Lily Latuheru on vocals and Dario Cecchini on flute and saxes! Most tracks are instrumentals, but Lily's soulful tones definitely make the vocal tracks sound great too – and titles include "New Frontier", "Blow Your Mind", "Ivory Skyscrapers", "Bahia Moon", "Berimbau", "Black Jack", and "Song For My Father".
