Jeich Ould Badu & Ahmedou Ahmed LewlaTop WZN ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2009. New Copy ... $16.99
An amazing bit of Afro-futurism – as traditional instruments are presented in an electrified setting – percussion and keyboards joyously dancing together, but with a really raw groove! The keyboards are often stark and distorted – as pulsating as the percussion – and given these beautiful flourishes on the ancient lute-like Hassaniya instrument, which itself is given an electric twist with some phaser pedals! The music has a very earthy vibe – maybe even more so, given that it was originally mastered for a cassette release – and titles include "Kenwall"," Nehawd", "Chima", "Tirss", "Lbteyt", and "El Wehcha".

BreakawayStraight On To The Top (with bonus CD) ... LP
Breakaway/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
The second set from St Louis funk combo Breakaway – and the album already shows a great deal of growth – especially in the territory of rhythm! Breakaway have definitely dug some of the best club modes from the New York scene – and work here in a jazzy disco style that's filled with sweet keyboard lines alongside the female lead vocals – all with a vibe that's nicely stripped-down, and still lives up to the indie spirit of the group. There's some jazz currents on the instrumentation, and the set features some guest work on horns, which nicely expands the sound – and helps give the blue-eyed soul vocals a nice sort of punch. Titles include "Straight On To The Top", "You Are Love", "Back & Forth", "There's A New Tree In The Forest", "Work With The Music", and "Breakaway". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of the album!)

CD Plastic Sleeves20 Polyclear Japanese Open Top Plastic Sleeves – Multi-Disc CD ... Record Care
Nagaoka (Japan), New Item ... $4.99
A cool open-top plastic sleeve for storing your CDs! This one works like the LP and 45 sleeves we stock – in that the plastic hugs your CD package on the front and back, and on the sides and bottom – but the top is open, so you can slide out the jewel case for easy access when listening! There's no flap at all to get in the way – and the sleeves are great if you store your CDs on shelves vertically, and don't like the outside cases to get scratched up. This version fits a range of multi-disc packages – including older-styled jewel cases that handle 2 to 4 CDs, and most of the contemporary larger slipcover styled CD packages too. Record Care

Paul ChambersPaul Chambers – Mosaic Select (Whims Of Chambers/Chambers Music/The Transition Session/Paul Chambers Quintet/Bass On Top) ... CD
Mosaic/Blue Note, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 3CD ... $34.99
Some of the best work ever recorded by bassist Paul Chambers – one of the greatest bass players in jazz! This excellent 3CD box set features the bulk of albums that Paul Chambers recorded for Blue Note as a leader, plus an earlier gem recorded for the Imperial label, and another session for the Transition label. Together, the records give an incredible picture of Chambers' work – showing why most jazz players of the 50s regarded him as one of the most important forces on his instrument, and why Chambers had some unique talents that made him one of the few bassists to regularly record albums as a leader. Players on the albums include John Coltrane, Kenny Burrell, Donald Byrd, Clifford Jordan, Pepper Adams, and Curtis Fuller – and the albums include Chamber's Music, Whims Of Chambers, Paul Chambers Quintet, Bass On Top, and Transition Session. 32 tracks in all!

Maybe the best of their mid 70s records for RCA, in a similar style tp a lot of other East Coast groups from the time who had bigger hits and more mainstream popularity, even if few of their peers were truly as wonderful as the mighty Choice Four! On Top Of Clear is a close to perfect mix of uptempo cuts and ballads, with some of the sweetest lead and harmony vocals of the 70s! Van McCoy arranged and produced, and titles includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing (Tom Moulton Mix)", "Two Different Worlds", "Mysterious Lady (Tom Moulton Mix)", "Beautiful Glow", "Come Down To Earth", and "Everybody's Got A Story". 4 bonus tracks on the FTG Soul & Funk Classics edition – "A Time For Celebration" (short version and long version), plus the great, longer 12" versions of "Two Different Worlds" and "Come Down To Earth".

A Japanese album that reissues the full sessions for Flanagan's famous Overseas album, recorded and released in Sweden by Metronome, and issued briefly in the US under the title Overseas. Tommy Flanagan is in perfect form in this stellar session of trio recordings, playing with Elvin Jones on drums and Wilbur Little on bass, in a mode that's both lyrical and boppish. Titles include "Skal Brothers", "Verdandi", "Dalarna", "Little Rock", "Eclypso", and "Beat's Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby HayesInvitation – Live At The Top Alex 1973 ... CD
Acrobat (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
One of the last performances ever from the legendary Tubby Hayes – a small club concert, done with a hardbop vibe that rivals some of his important albums of the late 50s! Tracks are nice and long, and Tubby's wonderfully imaginative with his solos – mostly tenor, but a bit of flute too – and although the recording quality is slightly muted, the level of performance is more than high enough to rise above that slight drawback – and in some odd way, Hayes maybe comes through even more strongly, as the rhythm trio's a bit muted. Titles include "Trenton Place", "Seven Steps To Heaven", "Invitation", "Without A Song", and "Poinciana". CD

✨✧ Ahmad JamalPoinciana Revisisted – Ahmad Jamal At The Top ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
Wonderful open-ended Ahmad Jamal music from the end of the 60s – and a set that really shows his growth as a player at the time! The "revisited" in the title refers to Jamal's earlier success on Argo records with a recording of "Poinciana" – one that forever made the tune his, thanks to a long-flowing approach that took the familiar standard, and turned it into the perfect foil for Jamal's expressive piano style. But the vibe here is very different – even more open than before, with a beautiful 9 minute reworking of the tune that's worth the price of admission alone! The trio features Jamil Sulieman on bass and Frank Gant on drums – and titles include "Poinciana", "Call Me", "Lament", "How Insensitive", and "Have You Met Miss Jones". LP, Vinyl record album

Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good ... $11.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Money Records Vol 2 ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer soul from the LA underground of the late 60s – a motherlode of work from west coast indie Money Records! The label is every bit as hip as you'd guess from its name – a right on the money blend of the best elements in soul at the time – all served up with some of the tightest production west of the Mississippi, and an undeniable ear for the grittiest side of a groove. There's plenty of great twists and turns to many of these tracks – and in a way, the Money sound of this time reminds us a fair bit of the best work coming from Detroit indies operating in the shadows of Motown. Yet the grooves here are also a fair bit fresher because they're often less familiar – never over-compiled like some of the Motor City tracks, and perfectly presented here with top-shelf Kent Soul standards, both in the mastering and notes that go with the set! Titles include a few previously unissued numbers – with 24 tracks that include "Losing You" by Eddie Horan, "I Thought It Over" by Gwenn Stewart, "My Belief" by The MM's & The Peanuts, "Too Late Now" by The Mysteries, "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" by Eric Williams, "Living A Lie" by Bobby Angelle, "Love Insurance" by Henry Strogin, "The Dance Is Over" by Bettye Swann, "Lost My Love Yesterday" by The Larks, "Ain't That Kinda Sad" by The Question Marks, "Should I Take A Chance" by Ted Walters, "Tam A Rind" by Hank Jacobs & The TKOs, and "You Bet I Would" by Pat Livingston.

AirtoVirgin Land ... CD
Salvation/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic sound overall too, one that leaves plenty of room for Airto's unique jams on percussion, plus a bit of vocals from the lovely Flora Purim. Airto's got some top-shelf talents helping him out here – Billy Cobham on production, and Stanley Clarke and Milcho Leviev on arrangements – and there's a nice sense of darkness going on that even separates the album from some of Airto's other mid 70s sides on CTI. Titles include "Peasant Dance", "Musikana", "Virgin Land", and "Hot Sand". CD

Monty AlexanderSunday Night ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $9.99
A nice little set from Monty Alexander – a Sunday Night session recorded with the same group, on the same weekend as his Saturday Night album! Monty Alexander's always great in a trio, but we really love the pianist when he's trying to add a little something extra to the mix – as he does here in a quartet performance that features some nice added percussion from Robert Thomas! The tracks have that warm glow and open flow that Alexander first started bringing to his music in the 70s – with sensitive rhythm work here from Reggie Johnson on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the added percussion really helps things swing at a slightly higher level, giving a gentle kick to some cuts, while Monty's still able to open up with some warmly lyrical lines over the top. Titles include "Old Devil Moon", "Who Cares", "Renewal", "African Bee", "Joyspring", and "More Or Wes". CD

Tony AllenHome Cooking ... LP
Comet (France), 2002. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $21.99
Stunning work from superdrummer Tony Allen – light years ahead of his original Afro Beat recordings with Fela! Tony's a consummate artist who's never stopped growing, and he's taken the energy of the Afro Funk revival of recent years, and used it to inspire him in new creative directions. The core rhythmic approach here certainly stretches back to Allen's classic work – but on top of that are a lot more sounds and influences, everything from sweet soulful funk to hip hop, broken beat, and beyond. Recorded in London with guest work by Eska, Ty, Damon Albarn, Mary Lee, and Norman Jemott – and titles that include "Home Cooking", "What's Your Fashion", "Eparapo", "Crazy Afrobeat", "Don't Fight", "Woman To Man", "Kindness", and "Every Season".

✨✧ Gene AmmonsJug ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1961. Used ... $4.99
A real turning point in the career of Gene Ammons – a record that almost returns Ammons to his earthier roots, and in the process helps build up a whole new sound in soul jazz for the 60s! The "Jug" nickname in the title is kind of a joking way to help Ammons stand alongside "Miles", "Trane", "Diz", and other one-name monikered stars in jazz – but even without that gimmick (which somehow lasted for years), the album's got a depth that more than gets Gene back on top, thanks to a gritty soulfulness and good sense of feeling in the grooves! Players here include Richard Wyands on piano on most numbers – plus a rare appearance by Clarence "Sleepy" Anderson on 2 numbers – one on organ, one on piano. Rhythm is by Doug Watkins on bass and JC Heard on drums – and Ray Barretto makes one of his great soul jazz appearances on drums – rolling the groove along with a nice bit of bounce throughout! Titles include "Tangerine", "Ol Man River", "Easy To Love", "Seed Shack", "Miss Lucy", and "Namely You". CD

Both Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt are on tenor in the front, working with the respect and confidence they'd forged together on other co-led sessions from the time – and Jack McDuff's a great addition to the set, playing Hammond with his newly-lean tone, and really helping things move along nicely. Drummer Charlie Persip has a nicely booming style here – one that gets the group out of the box from the get-go, and McDuff's handling all the bass work on the organ, which always makes for a tight rhythmic romp! Most tunes are in that great raw Prestige mode from the old days, as you'd guess by titles like "Tubby", "Dumplin", and "Shuffle Twist" – alongside other numbers that include "Sleeping Susan" and "Out In The Cold Again".

The reeds are especially nice – arcing over the top of the tunes in a spatial contrast to the mellower tones of Andersen's bass – and titles include "Anima", "Jana", "Terhi", "Radka's Samba", and "The Guitarist".

✨✧ ArtisticsI'm Gonna Miss You ... LP
Brunswick, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
A really breakout moment for The Artistics – and the start of a really sublime run with the great Brunswick Records! The group had already broken a bit on Okeh a few years before – securing a top spot on the Chicago scene with their bouncy northern soul groove – a love of rhythm that made them as much a favorite on dancefloors as they were with fans of harmony soul. But on this sweet set, things come together even better than before – thanks to strong leads by singer Marvin Smith, who brings a real sense of personality to the group's harmonies – and wonderful Brunswick studio help that includes Sonny Sanders arrangements and Carl Davis production. The whole thing's wonderful – and tracks include the hit "I'm Gonna Miss You", plus "On & On", "Sweeter Than Sugar", "Hope We Have", "Girl I Need You", "You're Wonderful", and "Love Song".

Ashford & SimpsonWarner Brothers Years – Hits, Remixes, & Rarities ... CD
Warner, Late 70s/2008. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Ashford & Simpson may have gotten their start at Motown, but they really found their groove at Warner Brothers – as you'll hear on this massive collection of tracks from their landmark late 70s years at the label! Even many decades later, the strength of this music is undeniable – a careful blend of soulful roots and upbeat rhythms – yet all in ways that never fall into standard disco cliches of the period! The Ashford & Simpson groove is a really unique one – always deeply soulful, even when well polished, and carefully put together with some of the best studio elements the pair could get their hands on – then produced to perfection with a sparkling sound that's years ahead of its time. This 2CD set offers up a full disc of 70s originals that includes some rare 12" mixes from back in the day – and it also includes a second CD of contemporary remixes that really pay tribute to the classics – the sort of modern re-edits and mixes that always keep the original sounds, styles, and rhythms intact. CD 1 features 14 tracks that include "Over & Over (12" disco mix)", "Have You Ever Tried It", "One More Try (12" disco mix)", "Send It", "Top Of The Stairs", "Don't Cost You Nothing (12" disco mix)", "It Seems To Hang On (12" disco mix)", "Found A Cure (12" disco mix)", "Bourgie Bourgie", and "Love Don't Make It Right (12" disco mix)". CD 2 features 9 tracks that include "Stay Free (Dim's club mix)", "Found A Cure (Tom Moulton mix)", "It Seems To Hang On (Tommy Musto re-touch)", "Bourgie Bourgie (Joe Claussell's classic rmx)", "One More Try (Dimitri re-edit)", and "Love Don't Make It Right (Joey Negro mix)".

AssociationAnd Then Along Comes The Association ... LP
Warner, 1966. Very Good- ... $1.99
The first full length album recorded by the legendary Association – a classic bit of Sunshine Pop that would forever change the sound of the 60s! Although familiar, the album's got an amazing depth that still never fails to surprise today – odd production twists and turns, courtesy of a young Curt Boettcher; personally youthful harmonies that slip as often as they soar; and just the right touches of flower power to move the group away from their folkie roots into the new sun of a changing decade! The hits "Along Comes Mary" and "Cherish" are almost worth the price of admission – but lesser-known cuts are even better, and show a wealth of great work penned by members of the group! Other titles include "Standing Still", "Message Of Our Love", "Changes", "I'll Be Your Man", "Blistered", "Round Again", "Remember" and "Enter The Young". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split spine and partially split top seam.)

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandBacao Rhythm & Steel Band ... CD
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 17.98
A fantastic full length set from the Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band – a group who've really won us over in recent years with a fast flurry of funky 45s! The group take an older steel band sound, and forge it to a might tighter rhythmic impulse – with a sound that's often even funkier than the best (and few) funky steel band tracks from the 70s – served up with razor-sharp instrumentation, and great production in a Daptone/Soul Fire mode – which really keeps things sounding raw all the way through! The group's got strong ties to the Mighty Mocambos – and some other contemporary funk acts too – and the music is top-shelf all the way through, a funkier full steel band record than you'll ever hope to find. Titles include "Beetham Highway Ride", "Scorpio", "Pimp", "Tropical Heat", "Laventille Road March", "Round & Round", "Port Of Spain Hustle", "Jungle Fever", "Love Like This", and "Dog Was A Doughnut".

Bill Barron & Ted CursonLeopard (aka Now Hear This) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
70s pressing of one of the most fantastic modernist jazz records of the 60's! The team of Bill Barron and Ted Curson never gets the mention that it should in histories of jazz, but the two of them were an amazing team that pushed the boundaries of modern jazz, while still managing to stay in a deeply swinging groove. Curson's horn is tight, sharp, and exquisitely pitched on the session – and Barron's tenor wails in a way that hardly shows up on some of his later albums. The group on here is a quintet, with Kenny Barron on piano, Ronnie Boykins on bass, and Dick Berk on drums. Tracks include "Dwackdi Mun Fualik", "In A Monastery Garden", "Jes Swingin", "Hurdy Gurdy", and "The Leopard". Originally issued briefly in 1964 on the Audio Fidelity label – but hard to find even in this format! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam and moisture staining.)
