New VariousJourney To The Dawn – Illuminating Jazz From Theresa Records ... CD CD format
Theresa/Temposphere (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost batch of soulful jazz from a massively overlooked source – the mighty Theresa Records, home to some really great recordings at the end of the 70s! Theresa was a tiny company formed in Oakland, CA at the end of the 70s – a spiritual heir to the sound of Impulse, Flying Dutchman, and other 70s powerhouse soul jazz labels – with a sound that was directly encapsulated in the label's own recordings of Pharoah Sanders at the time! After a few years of inactivity on the recording scene after his seminal sides for Impulse, Pharoah made a strong re-emergence on Theresa – working in a sweet style of soul jazz that was also picked up by some of the label's other strong artists. This excellent set was compiled in collaboration with Gilles Peterson – and features some of the hippest, most soulful tracks to come out on Theresa – work that takes off from the sound of Pharoah's earlier albums, into a whole new realm of expression! Titles include "Heart Is A Melody", "Rejoice", and "You've Got To Have Freedom" by Pharoah Sanders; "Samba" and "Pippin" by Ed Kelly; "Use Your Hands" and "Levels Of Consciousness" by Babatunde & Phenomena; and "Hip Funk" by Bishop Norman Williams & The One Mind Experience. 11 tracks in all!

Pharoah SandersHeart Is A Melody ... LP LP format
Theresa, 1982. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A fantastically soulful set from Pharoah – recorded in the early 80s, with his quartet that included Idris Muhammad on drums, John Heard on bass, and William Henderson on piano. The session is live, and the overall feel is easy and mellow – still searching, as in the best mode of Pharoah's work for Impulse, but with a warmer approach that shows him mellowing a bit with age – or as we might put it, figuring out the best aspects of his style, and focusing on those. Includes the sublime "Heart Is A Melody Of Time", a great vocal number that builds in a "Creator Has A Master Plan" sort of way. Also features the highlife-tinged "Goin To Africa", and a lengthy reading of Coltrane's "Ole". LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah SandersPharoah Sanders Live ... LP LP format
Theresa, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Quite a nice little album from Pharoah – the kind of session we always overlooked when we were digging for Impulse titles, and which we're now going back to, and almost appreciating more than the classic ones! The album's a quartet session – recorded live, of course – with a freely swinging rhythm section that features John Hicks, Walter Booker, and Idris Muhammad. The centerpiece of the album is a long quartet version of "You've Got To Have Freedom" – one that's nice and grooving, but in a very different way than the more famous studio version. Another real winner is "Pharomba", a 13 minute long track that has a gentle groove and some extremely nice work on tenor from Pharoah! LP, Vinyl record album

New Pharoah SandersRejoice ... LP LP format
Theresa, 1981. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic 80s work from Pharoah Sanders – with a vibe that's a perfect extension of his classic work for the Impulse label! The album has Pharoah working with an amazing group – Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, John Hicks and Joe Bonner on piano, Art Davis on bass, and either Elvin Jones or Billy Higgins on drums. The sound is remarkably fresh – soaring and spiritual, but also more focused than in earlier years, with a great amount of soulful warmth. And although extra elements are added – like vocals, vibes, and added percussion – Pharoah's solos still dominate the whole album beautifully. Titles include "Rejoice", "Origin", "Moments Notice", "Central Park West", "Farah", "Ntjilo Ntjilo/Bird Song", and "Nigerian Juju Hilife". LP, Vinyl record album
(In nice shape, save for some light wear on the bottom of the cover.)

Mundell LoweBilly Jack (alternate version) ... LP LP format
Billy Jack Records, 1971. Sealed ... $3.99
This is a strange 2nd pressing of the Billy Jack soundtrack – issued on the Billy Jack label, which might have been an imprint owned by Mundell Lowe. The records feature overall scoring by Mundell Lowe, with jazzy instrumentals that are trying to have a serious "southwest" sound to them – plus lots of vocal tracks with a similar folksy style to the film's big hit "One Tin Soldier", included on this album. That one's sung by the group Coven, but the rest are sung by lesser-known singers like Lynn Baker, Theresa Kelly, and Gwen Smith. What a weird time to be watching movies! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Corky McClerkinSearchin For The Soul ... LP LP format
WinCor, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A classic set of soul jazz from Chicago – a rare indie date recorded in the early 80s, but with a tight and swinging feel that's more 70s jazz funk than you might think! Corky's on Yamaha keyboards, and he's backed by a hip group of Chicago players that includes Curtis Prince on drums, Artee Duke Payne on saxes, and Stephen Harris on guitars – all working together in a tightly rhythmic sound with some slight spiritual undercurrents – almost in the same territory as James Mason on his legendary record from a few years before! As with that set, there's a bit of polish here, but never too much – a balance that makes the record a wonderfully mature record with a depth that keeps it going for years. Byron Woods sings lead vocals on the album's jazz dance classic "Searching For Soul" – and a few other tracks feature Theresa Davis on lead vocals. Other titles include "Everything Must Change", "Open Wide", "Passion", "Jive Mama T", "Off C", and "Mirror Mirror". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousBoogie Times Presents The Great Collectors Volume 11 ... CD CD format
Boogie Times (France), Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great collectors keep on grooving – and it's pretty darn hard not to, given the strength of the music in this set! This 11th volume of the Boogie Times series goes even deeper than usual – and features one previously unreleased track, mixed in with the usual rare singles – all together in a batch of grooves that's nicely balanced between modern soul and some of the best indie club modes of the early 80s. Things seem a bit warmer than before – almost less of the beats and basslines you've come to expect from this series – and there's some especially wonderful vocal numbers on the set. Titles include "Everybody Loves Music" by Breeze, "Where Is Love" by Sass Band, "Do You Love Me" by Chimere, "You & I" by Ronnie Jones, "Someone Special" by Rideout, "Trust My Love (ext version)" by Theresa Hightower, "Conversation" by Dayton, "You" by Brothers II, "So Smooth" by Krystal Davis, "I Like Your Style" by Break On Down, and "Put Me Down" by Spur Of The Moment.

New Kenautis Smith & BlackspadeMotivational Tool ... CD CD format
All Natural, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Kanautis Smith and Blackspade team up for All Natural, Inc! There's often a soul music reverent vibe on records that come on on All Natural, and this one succeeds strongly on that front – as well as holding up as one of the finer producer/MC co-headling records we've heard in a while. There's a healthly guest roster of rhymers and singers, but it all fits together very well. Includes "After All" feat Theresa Payne, "Work Out" with Thaione Davis & Brandin, ""All In My Mind" with Naledge, "Stll Remains" with Teresa Jenee & Race, "Greatest Of All", "Look Around" with Ari Lourdes & Demetrius Upchurch, "Lay It Down", "Sick" feat All Natural, "The Closing", "No Name" with Fresco & White Owl and "Frank Jackson.
