✨✧ Ornette Coleman & Prime TimeVirgin Beauty ... LP
Portrait, 1988. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant later work from Ornette Coleman – quite adventurous stuff, too! By the late 80s, the shock of the new of Ornette's harmolodic sound had worn off enough that majors like CBS/Portrait were more than willing to invest in it – but for every catchy modern groove here, there's a left turn into more subtly daring territory! A few tracks feature Jerry Garcia – "3 Wishes", "Singing In The Shower", and "Desert Player" – and his jazz-folk-psych improv guitar style is a pretty wild match for Ornette and Prime Time. We didn't give those cuts nearly enough credit to over the years! The Garcia-less tracks show Ornette's awareness of hip hop and funky fusion, but he doesn't cop to trends. It's more that he's showing his continuing relevance in the 80s landscape. The group features Denard Coleman on percussion and keys, Calvin Weston on drums, Al MacDowell and Chris Walker on bass, Bern Nix and Charlee Ellerbe on guitars, and Ornette on alto, trumpet and violin. Other tunes include "Happy Hour", "Bourgeois Boogie", and "Spelling The Alphabet". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TimeIce Cream Castle ... LP
Warner, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic! The third LP from the Time, and last before Morris Day went off and started his solo career – though by this point Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis had departed the group. Nonetheless, the sound is still tight modern funk, with Jesse Johnson and crew keeping things in the great post-Prince Minneapolis pop-funk sound, including some nice dance numbers like "Jungle Love" and "The Bird" – and Morris just being Morris on cuts like "My Drawers", "Chili Sauce" and "If The Kid Can't Make You Come".

✨✧ TimeWhat Time Is It? (colored vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The second essential LP from the Time that would solidify Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis' position as a force to be dealt within commercial R&B for years to come, cut during the early 80s, when Minneapolis seemed like it was exploding at the seams with great music. With Morris Day's nice extended dance cut "The Walk" featuring a nice popping beat, plus the excellent and very Prince sounding slow jam "Gigolo's Get Lonely Too" and the percolating pre-New Jack funk of "777-9311". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cortijo & His Time MachineCortijo & Su Maquina Del Tiempo/Cortijo & His Time Machine ... LP
Coco, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary crossover Latin album from the mid 70s! Percussionist Rafael Cortijo leads a killer group that mixes Latin jazz, salsa, and 70's soul instrumentation into a groove that's still being touted highly today – a classic Nuyorican sound that's only slightly electric, but has a really pulsating groove throughout. There's some especially great horn work on the album – tight and jazzy, but in a really fresh way – and production is by Harvey Averne, who really knows how to get the sound right! Titles include the killer cut "Gumbo", plus "Baila Y Gozo", "Carnaval", "La Verdad", and "La Tercera Guerra". LP, Vinyl record album

Manny AlbamJazz Greats Of Our Time Vol 2 ... LP
Coral, 1957. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Following up the strength of the first Jazz Greats set, Manny returns with a west coast version of the project – one that features players that include Richie Kamuca, Conte Candoli, Jack Sheldon, Bill Holman, Lou Levy, Charlie Mariano, and Shelly Manne – all dependable stalwarts of the west coast scene, as reliable as they were "great"! The album also features a mysterious "Trumpeter X", who may well be Harry Edison from the notes on the album's hints at his identity – and proceedings overall are very much in Albam's best "tight arrangements with room for jazz solo space" style of the 50s. Tracks include "Interwoven", "Afterthoughts", "Sweet's Bread", and "Thunder Burt". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove, in the textured cover, with some aging, half split spine, and sticker remnants on back.)

AlessiLong Time Friends ... LP
Qwest, 1982. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Pop soul from the Alessi brothers – bright, upbeat and glossy groovers that sound sweeter that we would have imagined all these years – with tight songcraft, hooks you can't shake if you try, and played by some all star musicians - Larry Carlton, Tom Scott, Ernie Watts, Lenny Castro and more! Christopher Cross is also on the album, and he blew up pretty big for a little while around this time, and Long Time Friends are just as unshakable as his huge hit! Titles include "Jagged Edge", "I'm Gonna Tell Her Tonight", "How Long, How Much", "Still In Love", "Forever", "Long Time Friends" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Alma Afrobeat EnsembleIt's Time (with download) ... LP
Slow Walk (Spain), 2016. Sealed ... $2.99
Nice one from Barcelona's Alma Afrobeat Ensemble – with some righteous, timeless original tunes by the group – plus some stylistic boundary-busting collaborations with remix producers! The straighter Afrobeat numbers are pretty great – inspired by the legends of the style, blending western soul, funk and jazz with African rhythms and percussion – providing a danceable foundation for some pretty righteous lyrics – sung largely in English by Lagos-born vocalist Joe Psalmist. The remixes are fresh cuts, too, as opposed to re-workings of same album's other tracks – and they really bring in some diverse dancefloor style, too. Titles include "It's Time", "Live And Let's Live", "Shakedown", "Lost", "Siempre Prente (DJ Farmer Fiesta Remix)" and "Room Enough" featuring Ray Lugo (Terrifcos Remix) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy Ayers & Wayne HendersonPrime Time ... LP
Polydor, 1980. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A funky classic from the team of Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson – both at the top of their game here, and effortlessly mixing together jazz, funk, and soul! The record really seems to embrace the best of both artists' styles – some of the bassy groovers that Wayne did so well himself, and while producing for other artists – and those snakey, soulful numbers that we love so much in the late 70s work from Roy Ayers – ultra-sophisticated, but still plenty darn grooving – and some of the most sensual soul you'll ever hope to hear. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Weekend Lover", "Thank You Thank You", "Can You Dance", "It Ain't Your Sign It's Your Mind", "You Make Me Feel Like Rockin With Ya", "Have Your Way", and "Million Dollar Baby".

Bob Brookmeyer & Bill EvansAs Time Goes By (aka Double Barrelled Piano) ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A repackaging of an album that was originally issued as Double-Barrelled Pianos by United Artists in 1959. The record's a compelling set of twin-piano lines – in which Bill Evans and Bob Brookmeyer play head-to-head, in a spiralling modernist style that brings out the best in each player. One player hits a rhythm groove (augmented by Percy Heath on bass and Connie Kay on drums), and the other swings out over the top in solo formation. The stereo separation of the album has Evans in the right channel and Brookmeyer in the left – and tracks include "As Time Goes By", "I Got Rhythm", "The Man I Love", and "The Way You Look Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

Brothers JohnsonRight On Time ... LP
A&M, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
A funky classic from the Brothers Johnson – sweet funky soul, done with a polish few could match! The pair are still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and the record's filled with lots of tight jazzy grooves that certainly show Quincy's touch – and which set the record apart from a number of similar mainstream funk records flooding the market at the time. The standout cut on the album is their great reading of "Strawberry Letter 23" – originally done by Shuggie Otis in a stoner version, but nicely stripped down here by the Bros, and given a very nice pop psychedelic soul twist! Other tracks include "Right On Time", "Q", "Free Yourself, Be Yourself", and "Love Is". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes booklet. Cover has some edge wear.)

✨✧ Dave BrubeckCountdown – Time In Outer Space ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $8.99
The rarest of the "time" trilogy albums albums that Brubeck started with Time Out – and the most compelling, too! The classic quartet is in excellent form here – and drummer Joe Morello is especially excellent, as he's working in new rhythms and new percussive modes that you'd never expect from the group's earlier recordings. The best cuts have a slightly exotic tone to them, made even better by Desmond's snaking alto work – and titles include "Fast Life", "Waltz Limp", "Castillian Drums", "Back To Earth", "Danse Duet", and "Countdown". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BryantMadison Time ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $9.99
An incredible album – a super-hit for Ray, and unlike anything else he ever did! The album's based around the groove of the classic Madison dance – a darkly turning rhythm that's laid down by Ray with some heavy-handed work on piano that's really outta site! The group on the set's a jazz one, but they're grooving and vamping in a tightly soulful mode that's perfect for the dancefloor – and players include Harry Edison, Bill English, Buddy Tate, and Al Grey. But even better is Eddie Morrison, who "calls" the dances by shouting out moves as the tunes go on! Eddie's voice really gives the set an amazing edge – as heard on the classic "Madison Time", served up here in 2 parts – and on tracks that include "Hit It (parts 1 & 2)", "Young Buddy", "Centerpiece", and "Split T (parts 1 & 2)".

Alvin Cash & The RegistersTwine Time ... LP
Mar V Lus, 1965. Very Good- ... $6.99
The classic album of short funky Chicago soul dance tracks, recorded for Mar V Lus as the follow-up to Alvin's huge "Twine Time" single. Most of the cuts on here have the same sort of groove, and most of them were written by either Andre Williams or Monk Higgins, with the kind of hard soul approach they were taking at the time with Chicago soul. Tracks include "Burn Just A Hair", "Do It One More Time", "Barracuda", "Hawk Eye", and "Bump". A potentially great record that's marred only by the rough recording quality of the Mar V Lus studios – every copy we've come across has sounded somewhat distorted and dirty, regardless of how clean the vinyl is . LP, Vinyl record album
(PLEASE NOTE: any sound quality issues are a result of poor master tapes, as noted above. Cover has some wear & aging, with a center split bottom seam.)

✨✧ Chairmen Of The BoardGive Me Just A Little More Time ... LP
Invictus, 1970. Very Good- ... $6.99
A landmark album of 70s soul – and perhaps the most enduring full LP by this enigmatic harmony group! The vocals of General Crook alone are more than enough to win us over – some of the most distinct lead soul singing we've ever heard, pitched perfectly with the backings of the rest of the group. But the overall package is even better – righteous arrangements that really show the new Holland-Dozier-Holland energy for the 70s – more of a punch than most of Motown a few years before, and open to some headier elements that only serve to do even more with the vocals! Titles include the group's huge hit "Give Me Just A Little More Time", a totally compelling number with a scattershot beat, and some wonderful lead vocals from the always-great General Johnson – plus, their cover of Clarence Carter's "Patches" – which was a big single for them – and the tracks "Bravo Hooray", "Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales", "Come Together", "You've Got Me Dangling on a String" and "Tricked & Trapped".

Gene ChandlerThere Was A Time ... LP
Brunswick, 1968. Very Good- ... $11.99
A soaring, burning set from Gene Chandler – completely different than his early hits, and a key point in the transformation of Chicago soul in the 60s! Gene's always had a heck of a great vocal range – and he really gets a chance to use it to best effect on this album of jaunty and groovy little tracks – tunes that bounce around with that majestic Chi-soul style of the late 60s, all produced to perfection by the great Carl Davis! The sound is sublime – a pulling together of so many different strands into one bold, proud sound – sophisticated yet soulful, and with a rhythmic component that really sets the album apart from the pack. And even when Gene's singing tunes that you may know from other singers' hits, he does a tremendous job of transforming them – recasting them into his more mature groove, and managing to funky them up in ways we wouldn't expect! Evidence to this is the album's great version of James Brown's "There Was A Time" – which is followed by loads of other great cuts, including "Cowboys To Girls", "Fooling Around", "Pit Of Loneliness", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Laughter To Tears".

Sonny Clark TrioMy Conception – The 1960 Time Sessions With George Duvivier & Max Roach (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Time/Tompkins Square, 1960. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
A trio treasure from the incredible Sonny Clark – a rare non-Blue Note date from the late 50s, and a wonderful illustration of his powers on the piano! The setting is spare, but the sound is never sleepy – as Sonny's working here with Max Roach on drums and George Duvivier on bass – both of whom make for very lively compatriots in the trio – and help Sonny hit some fiercely flowing lines on piano! And apart from Sonny's great playing, the album's also a great showcase for his writing skills too, as nearly never tune's an original – with titles that include "Nica", "Sonia", "My Conception", "Minor Meeting", and "Blues Mambo". Also features a version of "Sonny's Crib" – mis-labeled here as "Sonny's Crip"! Special 2LP set features 6 more rare alternate takes on vinyl for the first time – plus a new essay by Ben Ratliff, and unseen photos too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes alternate takes!)
