Pucho & His Latin Soul BrothersPucho's Descarga (aka Jungle Strut) (with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Andale, 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A great lost album from Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – not classic vintage, despite the front cover image, but an excellent session from the early 90s that still has Pucho very much at the top of his game! The album's way heavier than some of Pucho's other material from the period – and only got slight circulation under the title Jungle Strut – as a record that really returns to the vibe of early 70s funky Prestige Records –w ith work from the legendary Pazant Brothers on horns, plus Melvin Sparks on guitar, Willie Bivens on vibes, and Bernard Purdie on drums! The sound is great – nice and raw, with a real emphasis on Purdie's funk – and titles include "Strange Thing", "Got Myself A Good Man", "Pucho's Descarga", "Soul Sauce", and "Bang Bang Lulu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Also features a bonus 7" single – "Got Myself A Good Man (rmx)" and "Sidewinder (rmx)".)

Chuck SimmonsHustler's Strut – Rare & Unreleased Lower Ninth Ward New Orleans Funk 1965-1975 ... LP
Funky Delicacies, Mid 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
As the title says, the set's filled with rare funk tunes from New Orleans – all late 60s/early 70s material by Chuck Simmons, mostly issued as obscure 45s! The tunes on the set are different than the usual New Orleans funky stuff – as they've got traces of both more southern soul and Detroit bass work on them, stretching past the usual heavy clunk of the New Orleans sound to pick up influences from James Brown, P-Funk, and other northern soul acts. Includes the totally great break track "Funky Broom", plus "Hustler's Strut (parts 1 & 2)", "Everybody Needs Somebody", "Don't Create Complications", "Lay It On Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Doin The Sissy", and "Am I Grooving You".

New Young-Holt UnlimitedSoulful Strut ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky soul instrumental classic – all the way through! The team of Eldee Young and Redd Holt first came to prominence with Ramsey Lewis' first Chicago trio, then branched out on their own as a jazz act – but by the time of this set, they'd picked up a hipper, funkier late 60s sort of soul groove – and were working with larger backings and a nice deal of extra bass! The pianist in the group is the super-dope Ken Chaney – a player who uses space as much as he uses notes – providing a cool counterpoint to the funky and jazzy riffing of the Young/Holt bass/drum combo. The album includes the landmark track "Soulful Strut" – with tinkling piano over funky backings mixed with sweetened strings – and other tracks include "Funky Is As Funky Does", "Baby Your Light Is Out", "Who's Making Love", "Ain't There Something Money Can't Buy?", "Be By My Side", and "Please Sunrise". A high point in the Chicago soul scene – with backings by Willie Henderson! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCalypsoul 70 – Caribbean Soul 1969 to 1979 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 LPs & CD ... $24.99 25.99
A cool collection of funky grooves from the Caribbean – tracks that take a strong influence from American soul and funk, then blend it heavily with hip rhythms from the islands! A few of the names here are familiar, but most are relatively obscure – and put together, the tunes on the set illustrate a hugely under-tapped scene that's filled with wonderful tunes – tracks awash in jazzy rhythms, skittish percussion, and a range of styles that move past much more familiar Jamaican sounds from down south. Drums here are often quite heavy, and matched by other percussion as well – not to mention jagged guitar lines and bass bits that really send the whole thing home! As with other Strut compilations, the overall package and liner notes are as great as the music on the disc – and the set features a total of 20 tracks that include "Of My Hands" by The Goretti Group, "Calypsoul" by Clarence Curvan & His Mod Sounds, "You Tink It Sorf" by Lancelot Layne, "Magic Fever" by Magic Circle Express, "Independent Bahamas" by Biosis Now, "Move Up Blackman" by Tyrone Taylor, "Guanavaco" by Marius Cultier, "Raycan" by The Hondells, "You Don't Love Me" by Gemini Brass, "Woman" by Sambo, "We See Jah" by Wadadli Experience, "Freedom In Africa" by Duke, "Red Light Lady" by Ophelia, and "It's A Feeling" by St Maartens The Rolling Tones.

Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99 25.99
A much-needed look at the confusing world of grooves from Haiti – a scene that's always been accessible to most listeners in the US, but never with the kind of focus and direction we need! Haitian records are often a bit perplexing to our crate-digging ears – they look great on the cover, usually feature a hip lineup of cats with jazz instruments, but often move into territory that's either too sweet or too loose – not the kind of heavier sounds we were expecting. Yet this set really brings the right sort of focus to Haitian music – and uses the Strut Records approach that's been tuned towards African and South American grooves in the past – all to pull out the funkiest, jazziest, grooviest tunes from the 60s and 70s. The package has a great set of notes that really illustrate the scene and styles behind the music on the disc – and titles include "Ce Pas" by Tabou Combo, "Pile Ou Face" by Les Loups Noirs, "Ti Garcon" by Ibo Combo, "Choc Vikings" by Les Vikings, "Ti Machine" by Les Animateurs, "Cote Moune Yo" by Super Jazz Des Jeunes, "Cochon St Antoine" by Ti Paris, "L'Artibonite" by Les Freres Dejean, "Suspann" by Caribbean Sextet, "Line" by Bossa Combo, and "Ti Lu Lupe" by Scorpio Universal.

New Grandmaster Flash & OthersOfficial Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash ... LP
Strut (UK), 2002. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible stuff – not a greatest hits compilation of Flash's work – but instead a fantastic document of the early days of hip hop! The package interweaves rare tracks and mixes by Grandmaster Flash with other tracks that were big in the late 70s South Bronx scene – all packaged together with a super-nice booklet that's filled with notes by the same guys (Frank Broughton & Bill Brewster) who wrote the book Last Night A DJ Saved My Life! The book offers the full story of Flash's rise and fall in hip hop – and it's filled with great info, rare photos, and even some images of well-worn copies of beat classics from Flash's own collection. The LP is a great listening experience – far more than just a set of hip hop, and more a trip back to the glory days of the South Bronx street parties. Titles include "Flash Tears The Roof Off (turntable mix)", "Flash Got More Bounce (turntable mix)", and "Get Off Your Horse & Jam! (turntable mix)" – all by Flash, and it also includes the beat classics "Computer Games" by YMO, "The Mexican" by Babe Ruth, "Trans Europe Express" by Kraftwerk, and "Do What You Gotta Do" by Eddie Drennon & BBS.

New Sun RaIn The Orbit Of Ra (plus bonus CDs) ... LP
Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderfully-done collection of work from the legendary Sun Ra – put together by longtime musical partner Marshall Allen, and way way different than the typical mish-mash of tracks you'd find on some of the budget or public domain titles on the market! First off, the track selection is really thoughtful – music that definitely defines the Arkestra in the 60s and 70s, but which also highlights some of its overlooked corners too – pulled together from recordings that appeared on the Saturn, Impulse, and other labels – all curated and remastered by Art Yard, who've done their share of great Ra reissues over the years. Plus, the package features a few unreleased performances as well – and although it would serve as a great introduction to the music of Sun Ra, it's also really perfectly put together for longtime Ra fans as well – given the focus, track selection, and overall quality of the whole thing. The sounds are sublime – maybe one of the best summations of the righteous, cosmic genius of the Arkestra at its best – and titles include "Reflects Motion", "Island In The Sun (extended)", "Somewhere In Space", "The Lady With The Golden Stockings", "Somebody Else's World", "Ancient Aethiopia", "Astro Black", "Have You Heard The Latest News From Neptune", "We Travel The Spaceways", and "Plutonian Nights". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousDance Mania – Ghetto Madness (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Strut (UK), Mid 90s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Strut Records takes another dip into the rich legacy of Dance Mania Records – one of the longer-lasting imprints on the Chicago house scene – and a label that continued to make lots of great music after others had given up! The focus here is on the later years of Dance Mania – a time when national and critical attention had shifted away from Windy City house, which only seemed to open things up even more – as the artists got even more experimental with their styles, and turned out some really amazing work! There's almost nothing here that seems aimed at the mainstream or the charts at all – and, if anything, the tracks seem to return to the darkest, spookiest styles of the early acid years – with a similar sort of sonic intensity. Titles include "The Groove" by Houz'mon, "Ghetto Booty" by Parris Mitchell, "Computer Sex" by DJ Funk, "Hit It" by Darien, "Computer Madness" by Steve Poindexter, "1112" by DJ Deeon, "Pump That Shit Up" by Jammin Gerald, "Bounce That Body" by Wax Master Maurice, "Give Me Ecstasy" by Paul Johnnson, and "Pump On The Floor" by Jammin Gerald.

New VariousPeru Bravo – Soul & Funk From Peru's Radical Decade (with bonus download) ... LP
Tiger's Milk/Strut (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The coolest collection of Peruvian grooves we've ever seen – one that gets past some of the straighter psych and Latin moments to focus on the funkier grooves of the Lima scene! Most work here is late 60s/early 70s vintage – and although many of the groups are rooted in rock, they're definitely reaching out for new modes here – bringing jazz, funky bass lines, soulful vocals, and more – almost like some of the unique Latin and funk hybrids happening in the LA and Bay Area scenes of the time! Yet lots of these cuts also have a really unique feel too – instrumentation that's tuned differently, produced with a special flair, and often mixed at a level that sounds very different than anything you'd hear in the US – all of which makes for stunning sound throughout. Titles include "Outasite" by Thee Image, "Cissy Strut" by Los Holys, "Hey Joe" by Jeriko, "Cacique" by Cacique, "La Camita" by Traffic Sound, "Bahia" by Laghonia, "Pancio Caliente" by Los Nuevos Shains, and "Aouh Aouh" by The Mads.

New Orlando Julius with The HeliocentricsJaiyede Afro (with bonus CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), 2014. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The first new music we've heard in years from Afro Funk giant Orlando Julius – wonderfully paired here with the always-great Heliocentrics! Orlando's definitely in the lead here – singing, playing tenor, and contributing percussion to the overall groove of the group – which leans a bit more towards a 70s African vibe than some of their other releases, yet still retains all their wonderful style of psychedelic funk! Some of the rhythms have an Ethiopian sense of slinkiness, while others hit more of a full-on Nigerian groove – and the whole thing's never forced, never gimmicky, and instead just the right sort of setting for Julius to re-emerge as a true giant of his generation. Titles include "Buje Buje", "Love Thy Neighbor", "Aseni", "Sangodele", "Jaiyede Afro", "Omo Oba Blues", "In The Middle", and "Be Counted". LP, Vinyl record album

New Malombo/JabulaSpirit Of Malombo – Malombo Jazz Makers, Jabula, & Jazz Afrika 1966 to 1984 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A seminal set of work that follows a rich musical journey from South Africa to the London scene – a collection that traces the development of one of the most important jazz groups of their generation, an ensemble that had a tremendous impact at home, then became an even greater force in the UK! Malombo existed under a few different names – Malombo Jazz Makers, Malombo Jazz Men, and just plain Malombo – and almost always worked in a style that put lots of earthy percussion first, then added on jazzy solo passages on guitar and flute, plus other occasional instrumentation as well. The group sometimes vocalized a bit – and their overall approach is a tremendous precursor to the burst of spiritual jazz in America during the 70s – but here served up much closer to the roots, with a sound that's wonderful – and really points the way towards styles that would emerge in the AACM and Strata East scenes. The collection then follows the group's move to London, and their growth into the Jabula group – a more contemporary Afro-styled combo who did a wonderful job of reworking South African styles with a 70s London vibe! As usual with Strut, the research, notes, and presentation are wonderful – and titles include "Bahula Dithabeng", "Abie's Mood", "Matshenyogo", "Bird Meets Elephant", "Jikeleza", and "Abbey's Body" by Malombo – plus "Jabula Happiness", "Let Us Be Free", "Tender Into Our Hearts", "Journey To Africa", and "Mathome" by Jabula. 17 tracks in all – but 2LP set features one exclusive track "Mama", plus all the CD tracks on a bonus CD!

New VariousHardcore Traxx – Dance Mania Records 1986 to 1997 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 80s/1990s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A massive overview of one of the longest-running house labels from Chicago – the crucial Dance Mania imprint, second only to Trax and DJ International for its huge run of talent! Dance Mania came into being a few years into the first wave of Chicago house, but also kept its dedication to the underground for a lot longer, too – and really helped a tremendous amount of young artists to hit the studio and get their chance at turning out a groove! The label was housed in the upstairs of Barney's Records – an important west side record store and one-stop – and it dedicated itself to tracks that were maybe a bit faster, simpler, and more direct than some of the other house in Chicago at the time – often with a great style of stripping things down to all their best elements, yet still keeping things warm and soulful overall. The package features great notes on the label – and on the great Ray Barney himself (we miss your store, Ray!) – and titles include "7 Ways (club)" by Hercules, "Crazy Wild" by Club Style, "Love Will Find A Way (club)" by Victor Romeo, "Toxic Waste (club)" by Tim Harper, "I'm So Deep" by Vincent Floyd, "Falling (Armando's house mix)" by 326, "Da Bomb" by DJ Deeon, "Ghetto Shout Out" by Parris Mitchell, "Hit It From The Back" by Traxmen & Eric Martin, "The Original Video Clash – Video Class 2 (street mix)" by DJ Funk, "Feel My MF Bass" by Paul Johnson, and "Work Out" by Top Cat. 2LP set features the full CD – plus 12 tracks on vinyl.

New VariousMusic For Dancefloors – KPM Music Library (2LP/2CD set) ... LP
KPM/Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 LPs & 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A sound library and a dancefloor? Sounds like an unlikely combination – but it results in a killer collection that's still one of the greatest sets of sound library funk we've ever heard! This massive batch of music is a great illustration of the special sound of the KPM library – a really unique outlet for British musicians in the 60s and 70s to craft records that were even more amazing than their studio sides – vintage jazz, soul, and electronic grooves – served up by a lineup that represents the cream of the crop of the UK scene of the time – plus a few surprising outside contributions as well! Titles include "That's What Friends Are For" by Alan Parker & Madeline Bell, "Second Cut" by James Clarke, "Swamp Fever" by John Cameron, "Incidental Backcloth No 3" by Keith Mansfield, "Cross Talk" by Francis Coppieters, "Jungle Baby" by Juan Erlando & His Latin Band, "Freeway To Rio" by Les Baxter, "In Advance" by Pierre Lavin, "Senior Thump" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Expo In Tokyo" by Alan Moorehouse, "Funky Express" by Duncan Lamont, "Morning 1/Morning 2" by Klaus Weiss, "Assault Course" by Johnny Pearson, and "Samba Street" by Barry Morgan. The package is a great reworking of the original KPM collection from Strut – and not only features the original funky set, but also features a bonus CD that includes a rare live performance by the KPM All-Stars in 2000 – a wicked reunion with work by James Clarke, Duncan Lamont, Alan Hawkshaw, Keith Mansfield, and other giants from the heyday of KPM.

Barbara AcklinSeven Days Of Night ... LP
Brunswick, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
An excellent second album by Barbara Acklin – and a perfect demonstration of her really unique Chicago soul talents! Acklin's really at the cusp of two generations here – at one level still with some of the sweetness of the earlier style of 60s girl soul, but at another full of the power and pride that was really flowing into other artists of the 70s – a balance that's a great summation of the unique way that Chicago artists could play both ends of the spectrum, and come up with something really unique in the process! The album includes the great cut "Am I The Same Girl", a loping soul groover that was all set to be a big single for Barbara – but for some reason, Brunswick held the tape back, stripped off the vocals, put on some piano, and released it as the instrumental "Soulful Strut" by Young-Holt Unlimited at the same time! Yet we still dig Barbara's version better, though – nestled here alongside other great cuts that include "Seven Days of Night", "A Raggedy Ride", "Go With Love", "Mr Sunshine", "Until You Return", and "Where Would I Go".

Late stuff by Cannonball, with a dope spacey electric sound, no doubt due to some very nice keyboards on the session by George Duke. The album's a bit mellower than some of the others on Fantasy, but it makes up for that with a warm snaking mellow funk groove. Brother Nat gives a helping hand on both cornet and production duties, and the group also features Airto, Alphonso Johnson, Jack DeJohnette, and Alvin batiste with guest spots by Flora Purim and Ron Carter.

The album still has Jack DeJohnette staying true to his more avant roots – working with tenor from David Murray, alto and soprano sax from John Purcell, baritone and tuba from Howard Johnson, and bass from Rufus Reid – a lineup that's a bit bigger than on other Special Edition albums, and which is used to fill in even more colors and deeper elements than before. Some of the tunes are wonderfully vivid in approach – and titles include "Festival", "Third World Anthem", "Zoot Suite", "Ahmad The Terrible", and "New Orleans Strut". LP, Vinyl record album

The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – a sublime electric piano groove that's quite different than anything Deodato recorded before – and possibly never realized this perfectly again after his CTI years. Other players include Stanley Clarke on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, and Hubert Laws on flute – and titles include the massive Latin funk track "Super Strut", plus the tunes "Pavane For A Dead Princess", "Skyscrapers", and a great version of "Nights In White Satin".

The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power!

The album's exactly the kind that makes Moody unlike anyone else – a deeply personal voice on both the alto and tenor, and a player who's got a way of constructing these dark lines with the rest of the group – sounds that undeniably pave the way for the younger generation to come. James gets great help from a lineup that includes Dave Burns on trumpet, William Shepherd on trombone, and Pee Wee Moore on baritone – and rhythm is from the trio of Jimmy Boyd on piano, John Latham on bass, and Clarence Johnston on drums.

VariousAin't It Funky Now! – Flat Out Funk From The Jazz Brotherhood ... LP
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, meaner, harder-hitting groove. And although the LP was the growing format during these days, there was actually a heck of a lot of great work issued on 45s – still spinning strong with the jukebox crowds in the clubs and tap rooms, and still getting major play on radio stations, where the single was still king. The set features many 45 mixes of funky classics that you might know from LPs – and intersperses them with some other more obscure numbers pulled from full albums – making for an all-solid, all-funky set of tracks from one of the hippest jazz labels ever! Titles include "Fire Eater" by Rusty Bryant, "Don't Knock My Love" by Idris Muhammad, "Jungle Strut" by Gene Ammons, "Express Yourself" by Idris Muhammad, "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Sing A Simple Song" by Charles Earland, "Son Of Man" by Houston Person, "Listen Here (part 1)" by Freddie McCoy, "Black Talk (part 1)" by Charles Earland, "Message From The Meters" by Leon Spencer, "Reelin With The Feeling" by Charles Kynard, "I Want You Back" by Harold Mabern, and "Thank You (part 1)" by Melvin Sparks.

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The Mgs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Curcuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

Light In The Attic, Mid 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 25.98
Funk from Seattle? Hardly seems likely – but prepare to be amazed! The funky reissuers at Light In The Attic, in collaboration with Mr Supreme, have unearthed a treasure trove of rare singles and groovers for the set – all obscure local recordings from the Emerald City scene, most of which never made it past the Pacific Northwest to the national charts. Back in the day, Seattle was a real cross-cultural hotbed – filled with folks who'd picked up and moved out from points east, settling in the Central District, working for Boeing, and reveling in the freedom of the new city to find their own groove. This set does a great job of documenting the flowering of eastern-styled funk in Seattle's growing scene of the late 60s – and features a range of tracks that run from deep funk to hard soul, sock-boogaloo, and even a bit of hard-handed piano jazz! Set list includes "Louie Louie" by The Topics, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Soul Swingers, "This Is Me" by Cookin Bag, "Bold Soul Sister Bold Soul Brother" by Black On White Affair, "Cissy Strut" by Johnny Lewis Trio, "Stop Losing Your Chances" by Cold Bold & Together, "I Just Want To Be" by Robbie Hill, "Wheedle's Groove" by Annakonda, "Hey Jude" by Overton Berry Trio, and "A Little Love Affair" by Patrinell Staten. LP, Vinyl record album
(Finally back in print! Double 180 gram vinyl – with 32-page zine and comes in a nice, tip-on style sleeve.)

JJ Johnson/Martha ReevesWillie Dynamite – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MCA/Geffen, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Around March 24, 2015
One of the greatest soundtracks of the blacksploitation era – served up with some incredible grooves from maestro JJ Johnson! The album's got a non-stop, hard-hitting groove that ranks it with the best of its time – and which is arguably even better, because most of the record isn't nearly as well known as Shaft, Superfly, or other classics. Martha Reeves sings some of the deepest vocals of her career on the great title track "Willie D" – an old sample cut that you're sure to recognize – and the instrumental tunes are even better, filled with great percussion and jazzy flourishes from JJ – in a style that really keeps things interesting! There's plenty of "chase" riffing on the album – and titles include "Willie Chase", "Parade Strut", "Make It Right", "Gospel Family", "Keep On Movin", and "Willie Escapes". LP, Vinyl record album

DeodatoWhirlwinds ... LP
MCA, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet keyboard soul from Deodato – a set that steps off nicely from the strengths of his big hits on CTI, hitting a similarly flowing groove that's really great! The instrumentation here is a bit more expanded than before, but never in a way that buries the keyboards – and Deodato's right out front on a range of electric keys that get some great support from John Tropea's finely-honed work on guitar! Titles include "Havana Strut", "Whirlwinds", "West 42nd Street", and a nice cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again". And heck, even the album's version of Glen Miller's "Moonlight Serenade" manages to come off like a funk tune! LP, Vinyl record album

New John Lee & Gerry BrownStill Can't Say Enough ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from John Lee and Gerry Brown – a pair of fusion stalwarts who added key help to a number of classic 70s sessions for other artists – and got to make a rare few albums like this on their own! Lee's on bass and Brown's on drums, and the pair are in perfect time throughout – working with Skip Drinkwater production, which helps them find even more focus than before, and shake off some of the more jamming aspects of their rock-fusion performances with others – a move that helps them come up with a wonderfully soulful sound in the process – very much in the best Drinkwater soul jazz style of the time! Some cuts have vocals that get nice and soulful – from Donald Smith, CP Alexander, and Tawatha Agee – and titles include the brilliant "Love The Way You Make Me Feel" – plus "Freeze It Up", "Breakin", "Rise On", "Funky Now", "Strut N Get Up", and "Down The Way".

New Jay McShannBig Apple Bash (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest work from players who include Gerry Mulligan on baritone and soprano sax, Herbie Mann on flute and tenor sax, John Scofield on guitar, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, and Eddie Gomez on bass. A few tunes have an older Kansas City sort of swing, but others have a vamping groove that's really great – and these numbers really stand out in the set with some great solo moments. Titles include "Crazy Legs & Friday Strut", "Blue Feeling", "Jumpin The Blues", "Dickie's Dream", and "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tom ScottTom Scott & The LA Express ... LP
Ode, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real breakout moment for reedman Tom Scott – the first truly big album for the saxophonist who'd been blowing some great records on his own, and lending his horn to a host of classic jazz and soul sessions too! The groove is a lot sharper and tighter than earlier Scott albums, but never too slick – and definitely has that great ear for a funky undercurrent that seems to bring out the most soulful notes in Tom's horns – underscored here by wicked rhythms from the LA Express combo that features Joe Sample on keyboards, Larry Carlton on guitar, Max Bennett on bass, and John Guerin on drums. Titles include the sublime break track "Sneaking In the Back" – plus "Dahomey Dance", "King Cobra", "Easy Life", "Spindrift", "Vertigo", "LA Expression", and "Strut Your Stuff".

New VariousCan You Dig It? – The Music & Politics Of Black Action Films 1968 to 1975 Vol 2 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly the best-ever collection of blacksploitation grooves we've ever seen – a really comprehensive package that not only manages to cover the classics, but which also digs deep enough to come up with lots of fresh bits too! The set really sets a new level for the Soul Jazz label – and is carried off with enough authority towards Black Action films as the label's legendary efforts towards a host of less mainstream genres – truly an achievement for the label's crew, not to mention a heavier bonus for our funky listening pleasure! There's way more here than just a slapped-together batch of tunes from the early 70s – as the set's very carefully put together to showcase a wide range of sounds, along with notes that really get at the social and political power of both the music and the films. Vinyl volume 2 features an insert with notes, and tracks that include "Theme From Cleopatra Jones" by Joe Simon, "Pursuit Of The Pimpmobile" by Isaac Hayes, "Sweetback's Theme" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Aragon" by Roy Ayers, "Strung Out" by Gordon Staples, "Easin In" by Edwin Starr, "The Bus" by Solomon Burke & Gene Page, "Make A Resolution" by The Impressions, "Ed & Digger" by Cotton Comes To Harlem, "Las Vegas Strut" by Jack Ashford, "Lay It On Your Head" by Don Julian, and "Zombie March" by Nat Dove & The Devils.

New VariousStudio One Soul ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This set features reggae and rocksteady versions of American soul and funk tracks from the late 60s and early 70s – quite fitting, considering how much of Jamaican reggae began as an attempt to copy American hits for the local market. The set may well be the best-ever in the essential series of compilations by Soul Jazz Records – and like the others, it features some of the best cuts ever recorded for the Studio One catalog. There's a total of 18 cuts in all – and tracks include "Soulful Strut" by Sound Dimension, "Still Water" by Jerry Jones, "Express Yourself" by Leroy Sibbles, "Message From A Black Man" by The Heptones, "The First Cut Is The Deepest" by Norma Fraser, "Deeper & Deeper" by Jackie Mitoo, "I Don't Want To Be Right" by Alton Ellis, "No One Can Stop Us" by Willie Williams, "Queen Of The Minstrals" by The Eternals, "Don't Break Your Promise" by The Chosen Few, and "Is It Because I'm Black" by Senior Soul.

Sonny ClarkCool Struttin' (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night".

Just Sunshine/Light In The Attic, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Betty Davis was one of the nastiest ladies in 70s soul – and this is one of her greatest albums – a killer batch of funky tracks all the way through! Betty has a sound like nobody else – and she takes heavy drums, throbbing bass, and ripping guitars – all as a hard and funky backing for raunchy, raspy vocals that are belted out with a slinky, sexy sort of sound! Davis' vocals are unlike anyone else we can think of – easily some of the most badass work you'll ever find on record – and the tracks are a mix of hip themes about sex, gal power, and struttin your stuff – all delivered by a righteous woman who can definitely do just that! The album features the classic break tracks "If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up" and "Steppin in Her I Miller Shoes", but every cut is a funky monster – including "Ooh Yea", "In The Meantime", "Your Man My Man", and "Anti Love Song". A great one if you dig hard female soul, heavy funky guitars, or both at the same time! LP, Vinyl record album

If this is the New Lee Dorsey – we forgot all about the old one! The album's one of Lee's best early records – a killer batch of soul tracks that struts out of the New Orleans scene with some amazingly jagged production from Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn, very much in the best style of the Crescent City scene at the time. Lee's vocals are amazing, very pyrotechnic – and the tracks on the set are all original numbers that crackle with a uniquely earthy kind of electricity. Titles include "Working In The Coal Mine", "Ride Your Pony", and "Get Out of My Life, Woman", which has been sampled by so many people off this and other versions. Lots of other great stuff, too, like "A Little Dab a Do Ya", "Mexico", "A Mellow Good Time", "Neighbor's Daughter" and "Holy Cow". LP, Vinyl record album

Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the coolest, sharpest albums ever recorded by Frances Faye – a set that has the singer working with unusual backing from Frank Hunter, who brings a lot more punch to the grooves than you might expect! The horns are full – with work by Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Allen Eager on tenor, and both Bernie Glow and Nick Travis on trumpets – and that unique Faye style of singing really fits in well with the lineup – that kind of short-range quality that makes Frances sound so personal at all the right moments. Titles include "Love Is Just Around The Corner", "Just You Just Me", "Darktown Strutter's Ball", "Well All Right", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", and "Don't Blame Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Max Roach (with Andy Bey)Members Don't Get Weary ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Fantastic stuff, and a record that was virtually the blueprint for spiritual soul jazz in the 70s! Although Max Roach first rose to fame during the bop years, by the time of this set he'd really stretched out a lot – moving past initial righteous projects in the Civil Rights era, to even more progressive work with a group like this! The players are all youthful geniuses who would go onto shape the sound of 70s jazz tremendously – working here at a point that already shows their brilliance – Gary Bartz on alto, Charles Tolliver on trumpet, Stanley Cowell on piano, and even Andy Bey, who sings vocals on the title track. The overall style is very similar to Bartz's early albums on Milestone, or to some of the Music Inc records on Strata East, which feature Cowell and Tolliver. It's no surprise that Cowell contributed 3 tracks to the set – "Effi", "Equipoise", and "Abstrutions" – and the group also performs a great version of Bartz's "Libra"! LP, Vinyl record album

Jean Thielemans (Toots Thielemans)Man Bites Harmonica ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good+ ... $28.99
One of the first American albums from Belgian guitarist and harmonica player Toots Thielemans – a sharp-edged session that brings a new level of jazz into his work! The title's hokey, but the sound is totally great – with Toots on both harmonica and guitar, usually more of the former – alongside a batch of players that includes Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Kenny Drew on piano, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Given these players, there's a nice sense of late 50s tightness to the record – although all players seem to really defer to Toots' intentions, and shape the sound with a flair that's not unlike some of his few great European moments from the decade. Titles include "Fundamental Frequency", "Soul Station", "Struttin With Some Barbeque", and "East of The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

Gil EvansNew Bottle Old Wine ... LP
World Pacific, 1958. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A masterpiece through and through from arranger Gil Evans – a record of swinging modern backdrops, used to showcase both the solo talents of a young Cannonball Adderley, and the dynamic energy of Evans himself! Cannon's sharp-edged early tone is a really great sound for the record – far more modern than you might expect from later funk and soul sides of the 60s – and perfectly poised next to Gil's larger back drops to reignite a host of older tunes with new energy! And while the titles are familiar, the readings certainly are not – as the Evans pen has really changed things up beautifully – as you'll hear on numbers that include "St Louis Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Willow Tree", "Struttin' With Some Barbeque", "Lester Leaps In", "Round About Midnight", "Manteca", and "Bird Feathers".

A classic set from brassman Bobby Hackett – the kind of set that really helped him reach a big new audience in the postwar years! The style here is trad, but the set was recorded for Capitol in LA – so there's this sort of sparkling vibe to the whole thing too – a bit of an update that comes across in the lean presentation of the music, and the west coast way the players really manage to make a lot happen in a relatively small space! Bobby plays cornet, and other musicians include Abe Lincoln and Jack Teagarden on trombones, Matty Matlock on clarinet, Don Owens on piano, and Nappy Lamare on guitar – and Teagarden manages to sing a bit, in that raspy style of his we really love. Titles include "That's A Plenty", "New Orleans", "I Want A Big Butter & Egg Man", "Struttin With Some Barbecue", and "Royal Garden Blues".. LP, Vinyl record album

New Rick JamesFire It Up ... LP
Gordy, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rick James fires it up at the end of the 70s – stepping out at full star power that has him rivaling the strength of Bootsy Collins at Warner, and paving the way for the rise of Prince in the early 80s! As with Prince, James' version of funk here is a bit offbeat – lots of riffing guitars in the mix, and a bad-strutting groove that's still conventional mainstream funk of the time, yet with some edgier elements that led Rick to label his music as "punk funk" (or was it "funk punk"?) Given the end-of-70s spirit, you might also say that some of the cuts were aimed at the dancefloor – although James was never really one to storm the discos as much as others. Titles include "Love Gun", "Fire It Up", "Come Into My Life", "Lovin You Is A Pleasure", and "Stormy Love". LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant bit of psychedelia – still as fresh today as it was many decades back – and the crowning achievement of Pink Floyd during the early Syd Barrett years! The album's got all the best elements of the group firmly in place – the penchant for long-jamming tracks that still manage to always maintain a sharp edge – mixed with some of the wittier, more playful lyrics that Barrett brought to the group – all wrapped up with a sense of depth and darkness that goes way beyond most of their contemporaries. The record's a masterpiece through and through – from its first guitar-heavy jam on "Astronomy Domine", through the strutting, vamping madness of "Bike" – all up and down other gems that include "Lucifer Sam", "The Gnome", "Take Up Thy Stethoscope & Walk", "Interstellar Overdrive", "Chapter 24", and "The Scarecrow".

One of the darkest, moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Ennio Morricone – even in comparison to some of his atonal horror work of the 70s! The vibe here is almost 20th Century avant chamber – a bit like work from Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, but even more experimental – as odd bits of sound samples are filtered through these dark sonic textures, string parts, and electronics – all with a style that's very musique concrete overall! Tracks are much longer than usual for a soundtrack too – and the record has an experimental greatness that really stands apart from the film. Titles include "Disordini", "Ordini", "Ergastolo", and "Memento". LP, Vinyl record album

New Ray BryantIn The Cut ... LP
Cadet, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wild one from Ray Bryant – very different than a lot of his other work, especially his late 60s sides for Cadet! This album features string and horn arrangements by Charles Stepney – very tripped out and soulful – mellow at times, but with that majestically soulful approach that's always made Stepney one of our favorite arrangers ever. Ray also plays electric piano on a number of cuts – not really Fender Rhodes, but still with that harder tone of his acoustic work, which provides a nice contrast to Stepney's orchestrations. Some tracks have a really great feel – almost soundtracky, in a style that makes us wish that Bryant had gotten the chance to score some films during the time. Titles include "In The Cut", "Watermelon Man", "Cool Struttin", "Andalusian Nights", and "Land Of Make Believe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small peeled spot in one corner.)
