Gil EvansGil Evans & Ten ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... $6.99
Fantastic early work from Gil Evans – emerging here in this early session as an already far-thinking modernist. The tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still contains plenty of rich new ideas. Players include Louis Mucci, John Carisi, Steve Lacy, Willie Ruff, Paul Chambers, Nick Stabulis, and "Zeke Tolin" on alto, who is certainly a more famous player under a fake name. Titles include "Ella Speed", "Big Stuff", "Jambangle", "Nobody's Heart", and "Remember". CD

Illinois Jacquet & Ben WebsterKid & The Brute ... CD
Verve, Mid 50s. Used ... $14.99
The title's a bit misleading – as a number of the tracks on here were recorded by Jacquet, and Webster only sat in on two longer jamming numbers – "I Wrote This For The Kid" and "The Kid & The Brute". Not that that's a problem – as those long numbers take up a good portion of the record, and are really driving numbers that have some conga in the rhythm section, which makes for a lively kick that really drives the tracks. The conga also surfaces in "Mambocito Mio", a Latin jammer that moves at the best cubop speed – and other tunes include "Saph", "September Song", and "Jacquet's Dilemma". 15 tracks in all on this limited edition CD.

Michele Zanoni, Guido & Maurizio De AngelisMalombra ... CD
Hexacord (Italy), 1983. Used ... $14.99
An obscure slinky soundtrack from Italy – recorded for a 1983 film that was also known as Erotic Games, but done with a sweet feel that's like some of the best sex scores from the 70s! The whole thing moves along at a pretty mellow speed – really taking its time with the thin keyboard lines and bass bits that push along with the score – unfolding slowly into these great little moody tracks. The set features 14 titles in all, including some variations on the main theme. CD

VariousKeep On Struttin – Imitations, Interpolations, & The Inspiration Of The Meters ... CD
Le Smoke Disque, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $1.99
A massive tribute to The Meters – one that features rare versions of some of their best funky classics! If you dig The Meters, you'll no doubt recognize most of the tunes – but you've probably never heard them in these versions before – as most of them are pulled from the farthest reaches of the 60s and 70s funky underground! Most numbers change things up a bit in terms of instrumentation – using a guitar where you might normally hear an organ, tipping the rhythm a bit more towards one speed or another – but all of them continue strongly that chunky, gritty approach to instrumental funk the New Orleans combo first forged in the late 60s – a legacy that still lives on in lots of current work, but which sounds even fresher in these rare gems from years back. There's also a few original compositions by some of these artists, but they're all tunes that fall strongly within a classic Meters groove – and titles include "Cissy Strut" by Rod Piazza, "Flight Of The Phoenix" by Dennis The Fox, "Slot Machine" by Duke Of Burlington, "Cissy Strut" by King Herbert & The Knights, "Cardova" by Syd Jones & The Gay Troubadours, "The Cissy's Thang" by The Soul Seven, "Look Ka Py Py" by The Invaders, "Chicken Strut" by King Herbert & The Knights, "Madrox" by Big Band Katouuice, "Cissy Strut" by Sacramento Senior High School, "Big Splash" by Band It, and "Soul Heart Transplant" by Ebony Rhythm Band.

VariousSoothers & Movers ... CD
Goldmine (UK), 1960s/1996. Used ... $9.99
Very tight batch of uptown soul put together by the good folks at Goldmine. Some great male vocalists in the early smooth soul tradition – and some great lost female vocal sides that we never ever see. Titles include "Who Is It Gonna Be" by Dee & Joe", "I'm Lonely For You" by Bettye Swann, "Consider The Source" by Leon Haywood, "Face Up To The Truth" by Doris Troy, "Love Won't Wear Off" by JR Bailey, "Why Did I Lie" by The Players, "Bring On The Heartaches" by Willie Tee, "I've Got Love For My Baby" by The Younghearts, "Mamma's Love" by The Tribulations, "I'm Sorry" by Cody Black, "Speed Up" by The Impalas, and "I'm Gonna Make It" by The Pacesetters. 24 cuts in all!

TV Tunes, 1996. Used ... $11.99

Lots of groovy funky cop show stuff, like Kojak, SWAT, Baretta, Streets Of San Francisco, Rockford Files, Starsky & Hutch, and more – plus others like Laverne & Shirley, Cheers, Bob Newhart, Welcome Back Kotter, Speed Racer, Mr. Magoo, Dallas, Love Boat, Wonder Woman, and more! 65 tracks in all.

✨✧ Milt JacksonMilt Jackson Big 4 At The Montreux Jazz Festival 1975 ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Milt Jackson's working here with his "Big 4" group – a quartet (natch) that includes Oscar Peterson on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – all opening up nicely in this laidback live environment! Despite the Montreux hype of the 70s, the record's got a surprisingly intimate feel – and offers a nicely restrained Peterson doing some very sensitive solo work – augmented by some of Jackson's most chromatic sounds on vibes. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "Night Mist Blues", "Stella By Starlight", "Speed Ball", "Nature Boy", and "Funji Mama". CD

✨✧ David BowieLow (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Ryko, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". Features great bonus tracks – "Some Are", "Sound & Vision (rmx)", and "All Saints". CD

✨✧ Junior ManceJunior Mance Trio At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A firey little trio session from Junior Mance – one that features tracks taken at a pace that's even more uptempo than usual, and which really pushes his skills on the keys! The speed of the set is by no means a detriment to Mance's soulful playing – and if anything, the record stands as one of his most compelling from the period – not just a batch of soul jazz styles that were soon becoming cliches, but a vibrant example of the full range of Mance's talents, caught in a very spontaneous setting. Trio members include Larry Gales on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Smokey Blues", "Bingo Domingo", "Looptown", "Letter From Home", and "Girl Of My Dreams". CD

✨✧ Ron GrainerPrisoner File # 2 – Original TV Soundtrack ... CD
Silva, 1967. Used ... $4.99
Second volume collecting some excellent bits of both music and dialogue from the great TV series The Prisoner. Just like the show, which we can't get enough of, these wonderfully groovy tracks keep us coming back for more, from the more tense thriller type moments to atmospheric bits and even some lighter pieces too. 39 (!) tracks in all, with great titles like "Speedboat Dash", "Exam Results", "Number 6 Takes The Life Belt", "Human Chess", "MS Polotska" and "Nocturnal Escape".

✨✧ VariousDouble Blast Of Super Soul – Saturday Night At The Uptown/Apollo Saturday Night ... CD
Pacific, Mid 60s. Used ... $7.99
An incredible session of soul – tracks recorded live at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, featuring some of the hippest Stax and Atlantic artists in a very raw setting! The album's got a feel that's a lot less forced than other famous live Apollo sets of the time – very relaxed, but very authentic too – as the singers are given plenty of space to take the lead, and heard here with a quality that's more spontaneous than some of their studio sides. The audience gets a bit of space – but never as bombastically so as on a James Brown record – and given how many artists Atlantic discovered at The Apollo, the album's a nice nod of "thanks" in the right direction! Titles include "I Found A Love" and "Alabama Bound" by The Falcons, "Pain In My Heart" and "These Arms Of Mine" by Otis Redding, "Speedo's Back In Town" by The Coasters, "Misty" and "Say Yeah" by Doris Troy, "Rockin Chair" and "Walkin The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "Stand By Me" and "Groovin" by Ben E King, and a special finale version of "What'd I Say". Classic live stuff at the Uptown Theatre in Philly, with a mix of Atlantic artists, and artists borrowed from other east coast labels. Performances include "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "Down The Aisle" by Patti LaBell & The Bluebells, "If You Need Me" by Wilson Pickett, "The Watusi" by The Vibrations, "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl" by Patti & The Emblems, "Can't You Hear The Beat" by The Carltons, and more!

VariousSounds Of The Times – From The KPM & Conroy Music Libraries 1970 to 1977 ... CD
KPM/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. Used ... $12.99
A treasure trove of Brit sound library work – most of it from the legendary KPM 1000 Series, plus assorted bits from the Conroy label as well! The work here leans heavily towards funky jazz – those fuzzy, hard-driving tunes that always made KPM sides a key choice for action films and cop shows – and which have made digging through sound library records such a delight all these many decades later! The compilers did a really wonderful job with this set – creating a feel that's a bit different than the usual sound library collection – because although funky overall, the package also features some jazzy moments too – key cuts that are interspersed with the action moments to create a really fleshed-out sense of mood and feeling. Plus, the set list is huge – 25 tracks in all, running for well over 70 minutes – truly the treasure trove we promised at the start of this review, with titles that include "Soul For Sale" and "Tycoon" by Keith Mansfield, "Block Buster" and "Head In The Clouds" by Johnny Pearson, "Loco Motion" and "Soul Foot Strut" by Dave Gold, "Traffic" and "Challenger" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Short Cut" by James Clarke, "Heavy Traffic" by James Cameron, "Speculation" by David Lindup, "Vegas To LA" by Dick Doerschuk, "Tough Assignment" by Chris Gunning, "Speedway" by Nick Ingman, "String Boogie" by Brian Bennett, and "The Double Take" by Steve Gray.

✨✧ Clarke Boland Big BandHandle With Care ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work by this legendary hard swinging band – an early 60s American album issued on Atlantic Records, in the years before the Clark Boland Band's legendary run on MPS! Despite the early date, the album's got all the core elements of the band's sound in place – soaring rhythms, sharp-edged frontlines, and some great solo work by players who include Benny Bailey, Derek Humble, Jimmy Woode, Shahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, and Fats Sadi – coming together in a brilliant trans-Atlantic meeting of jazz talents! Tracks include "Long Note Blues", "Speedy Reeds", "Sonor", and "Om Mani Padme Hum". CD
