Milt JacksonJazz N Samba ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... About June 15, 2018
This may not be Milt Jackson's purest album – but oh how we love it! Milt's working here more in a Verve pop jazz mode than a highbrow third stream one – with bossa backings on about half the album, and good small combo work on the rest. The first half features Jimmy Heath on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Connie Kay on drums – all grooving nicely next to Milt's vibes on tracks like "Blues For Juanita", "Gingerbread Boy", and "Big George". The real charmer, though, is the second half – which has Milt playing with the same group, minus Flanagan, plus 2 guitarists for that bossa sound. Lillian Clark sings vocals on 2 cuts – "Jazz N Samba" and "Kiss & Run" – and the side also features the great groover "Jazz Bossa Nova", and the incredible "The Oo-Oo Bossa Nova", which features Joe E Ross from Car 54 going "Oo Oo!" on the breakdowns!

SkatalitesIndependence Ska & The Far East Sound – Original Ska Sounds From The Skatalites 1963 to 1965 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Original ska sounds from the originators themselves – 20 incredible numbers by the Skatalites & friends – with many of their most essential recordings, and rare stunners, to boot! The period in focus here is the initial few years of The Skatalites as a bonafide band, but the principal players – including Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Lester Sterling, Jackie Mittoo and other legendary names – had been honing their craft together for years, backing a who's who of Jamiacan musical heavies from calypso, to mento, to jazz and beyond. No wonder they burst out of the gate with some of the tightest rhythms in the music history, but it's stunning to this day! Really one of the finest Soul Jazz compilations in years, with a wealth of great notes, too! Includes their uber-classic "Guns Of Navarone", "Suavito", "Russian Ska Fever", "El Pussycat Ska", "Tell Them Lord" with The Wailers, "Further East" and "King Solomon" – along with the rarer "Sudden Destruction" with Dizzy Johnson, "Coolie Boy" billed to Don Drummond and lots more.

✨✧ Various101 Northern Soul – 101 Of The Greatest Northern Soul Anthems (5CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
The title's no lie – as this sweet little set features 101 Northern Soul classics – a treasure trove of upbeat soul from the 60s – with lots of rare cuts, obscure groovers, and the kinds of tracks that always got more play on UK dancefloors than back home here in the US! For the price, the set is a hell of a collection – and features killer classics from labels that include Motown, Chess, Philips, MGM, and other vintage imprints – with a nice degree of overlooked cuts that have only been discovered by the northern scene in more recent years. Titles include "Til You Were Gone" by Frank Wilson, "Love Love Love" by Bobby Hebb, "Stop Her On Sight" by Edwin Starr, "What More Could A Boy Ask For" by The Spinners, "Can't Satisfy" by The Impressions, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by Darrell Banks, "Why Am I Lovin You" by Debbie Dean, "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "I Got A Feelin" by Barbara Randolph, "Heaven Must Have Sent You" by The Elgins, "Dr Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Trampoline" by Spencer Davis Group, "Nothing Left To Give" by Thelma Houston, "Baby I Miss You" by Tommy Good, "I've Been Blessed" by Bobby Taylor, "Look What You Done Boy" by The Lollipops, "Friday Night" by Johnny Taylor, "Baby I Love You" by Howard Tate, "Helpless" by Kim Weston, "Moody woman" by Jerry Butler, "There's A Ghost In My House" by R Dean Taylor, "Ordinary Joe" by Terry Callier, "Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, "Drop In The Bucket" by Mary Wells, "Baby A Go Go" by Barbara McNair, "Love's Gone Bad" by Chris Clark, "Run For Cover" by The Dells, "Battened Ships" by Odyssey, "Nothing But A Heartache" by The Flirtations, "Sure Is A Lotta Woman" by The Isley Brothers, and "Keep On Lovin Me" by Francis Nero.

Tommy CollinsThis Is Tommy Collins/Words & Music Country Style ... CD
Capitol/Rural Routes, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Two full albums from the many who was an important influence on California country giants Merle Haggard and Buck Owens! The first album is pure genius from the young Tommy Collins – an early figure on the Bakersfield scene, and an artist who almost single-handedly shaped the sound of the west coast scene with his Capitol Records material included here! Collins had a wonderful way of updating older hillbilly modes – traces of Texas and Arkansas, moved over to postwar Cali – where things got tightened up, became a bit more confident, and were given a razor-sharp sound by the excellent Capitol production. Every tune here is a classic – and many have a sense of double-entendre that rivals the hippest R&B work of the period, but with a very different sound overall – on titles that include "You Better Not Do That", "How Do I Say Goodbye", "It Tickles", "You Gotta Have A License", "Smooth Sailin", and "Whatcha Gonna Do Now". Words & Music Country Style features the wit, wisdom, and wild twang of the great Tommy Collins – brought together in a killer collection of early work for Capitol! The music here is the ultimate peak of the hillbilly generation – not the codified country of the Nashville scene to come, but much more rough-edged and wooley – with more than a few elements that could influence the sound of rock and roll as well! Titles include "The Feet Of The Traveler", "How Do I Say Goodbye", "Think It Over Boys", "Are You Ready To Go", and "All Of The Monkeys Ain't In The Zoo". CD

✨✧ Beverly KenneyBeverly Kenney Vol 4 – Live At Birdland (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1956/1960. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from Beverly Kenney – two rare broadcast performances that add plenty to her too-small catalog of recordings! The lady's a hell of a singer from the postwar years in which artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Anita O'Day were issuing countless albums, year after year – one whose talents are equally great, but who hardly ever got her due on record! Beverly's few albums from the time are highly-prized jazz treasures, which have been reissued often over the years – and that interest has brought to light some other rare material like this, from a brief time when Kenney was getting some time in the limelight. The first half of the set features a sweet radio performance from 1956, recorded by NBC and featuring the great Gildo Mahones on piano – working with Tommy Potter on bass and Ron Jefferson on drums – a very hip trio who really bring a lot of bite to the music! The second half of the set features a very cool date from 1960 – a Kenney appearance on the Playboy's Penthouse TV show, along with some cool conversation with Hugh Hefner. Titles include "Makin Whoopee", "Mountain Greenery", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Everything Happens To Me", and "Violets For Your Furs". Also includes a whole Beverly Kenney segment of the All Star Parade of Bands on NBC. CD

VariousCopasetic – The Mod Ska Sound – 56 Ska & Rock Steady Classics From The Original Mod Era ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
The term "copasetic" was first coined by Bill Bojangles Robinson in the 30s – but the word is a perfect one to describe the vibe here – an easygoing groove, served up in dozens of killer cuts from the early ska and rocksteady years of Trojan Records! Given the image of a British mod on the front, you can bet that these are the kind of tracks that played big on the London scene in the second half of the 60s – tunes that were not only serving the big wave of Jamaican immigrants on the English shores, but also having a huge impact on the nation's youth of the time too. But even without any sort of history behind the music, there's still plenty to love here – a huge amount of cuts that includes some Trojan classics and lots of other deeper tracks too – titles that include "Yeah Yeah" by The Riots, "Wrong Emboyo" by The Rulers, "University Goes Ska" by Don Drummond, "Storm Warning" by Lynn Taitt & The Boys, "Wise Man" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Nuclear Weapon" by Roland Alphonso, "Keep The Pressure On" by Winston & George, "Bonanaza Ska" by Carlos Malcolm & His Afro-Jamaican Rhythms, "Contact" by Roy Richards, "The Jerk" by Derrick Harriott, "Inez" by Lester Sterling & Tommy McCook, "Big Bamboo" by Lord Creator, and "The Higher The Monkey Climbs" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes.
