Jimmy HeathTriple Threat ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1962. Used ... $6.99
Excellent early work from Jimmy Heath – only his 3rd LP as a leader (hence the title), but already showing a tremendous talent for soulful expression that would blossom even more strongly in the 70s! The style here is really a cut above most of Jimmy's contemporaries – as the record features Heath-penned arrangements for both sextet and quartet groups – the former of which feature some especially great horn parts, ones that are creative, but never too overly-complicated – and stretch out in a way that sets a new standard for soul jazz arrangements of the period. Players include Freddie Hubbard, Julius Watkins, Cedar Walton, Percy Heath, and Albert Heath – and on the quartet numbers, Jimmy's tenor takes center stage with the rhythm section's support. Tracks are well-written, with an approach that might be dubbed modernist soul jazz – and tunes include "Gemini", "Bruh Slim", "Goodbye", "Dew & Mud", and "Prospecting". CD

Sonny FortuneAwakening ... LP
A&M/Horizon, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $3.99
Great stuff from Sonny Fortune – emerging here as a strong leader with a spiritual soulful style that was steeped in traditions from labels like Strata East and Muse, but which also worked quite well in the slightly-expanded setting of A&M's Horizon projects. The group here is a well-selected one – with John Hicks and Kenny Barron on piano, Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Wayne Dockery and Reggie Workman on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. Fortune really knows when to sit back and let the group groove – but he also burns away strongly on his own solos. Titles include "Triple Threat", "Nommo", "Sunshower", and "Awakening". LP, Vinyl record album

Magnum ForceAre You Ready For The Weekend/Share My Love With You ... 12-inch
Kelli-Arts, Early 80s. Very Good ... $2.99
2 sides of work by this oft-overlooked late Chicago soul group! The real gem here is "Share My Love With You" – a sublime harmony soul ballad, and the kind of track that rivals the best of the New Jersey vocal group scene of the early 70s! A wonderful track that should have been huge – arranged and produced by the triple threat team of Otis Leavill, Willie Henderson, and Carl Davis! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Kelli-Arts sleeve.)
