Johnny GriffinJohnny Griffin Sextet ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $7.99
Few people could make a session cook like Johnny Griffin in his early years – and this late 50s sextet date is great proof of that fact! The album's a relaxed, open, almost unstructured set that might be dubbed a "blowing session", were it not for the tightness of the players and the relatively unified feel of the date. Griffin's tenor is very firmly in the lead, and he's very clearly the leader here – helping shape the sound of the group that includes Donald Byrd on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, Kenny Drew on piano, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. There's some really hard-wailing extended numbers that come across as full-on hardbop workouts – really driving things along as you might guess with a rhythm section like that in action – but other tunes show some more fully-fleshed sounds from the group – that slight undercurrent of modern expression that was always present in Griff's music. Titles include "Johnny GG", "Catharsis", "Stix Trix", and "What's New" – plus a take on "Woody N You" that just has Griffin wailing along with the rhythm section! CD

✨✧ VariousPulp Fusion 4 – Fully Loaded ... CD
Harmless (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The latest in this massive series of classic funky jazz – and quite possibly the best! This time round, the selection's a sparkling batch of super-hard grooves, with a lot of excellent cuts that we hardly ever see on vinyl at a nice price. The set kicks off with the amazing breakbeat track "Broasted Or Fried" by Willie Bobo, then leaps into "Gangster Boogie" by Chicago Gansters, "Afro Strut" by The Nite-Liters, "Hunk O Funk" by Jack McDuff, "Matrix" by Dizzy Gillespie, "Miss Funky Fox" by Exit 9, "I'm Not So Sure" by Milt Jackson, and "Easin In" by Edwin Starr. 12 cuts in all – and super funky!

✨✧ Divine StylerWordpower 2: Directrix (DTX pressing) ... CD
DTX, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
This is the original, independently released version of Divine Styler's third LP, which was licensed to MoWax, but is now out of print either way. As always, the Styler unleashes his sharp, intellectual rhymes in a complex vernacular, following up on the promise of the original Word Power LP, without the weird excursions he'd dabbled in on Spiral Walls, with a nanotech approach for the new millenium. 19 cuts in all, including "Satan Dynasty Killer", "Triple Irons", "One Self Duel", "Before Mecca", "Directrix", "Nova" and "Make It Plain".

The hazy psychedelic beatcraft and atmosphere of Gonjasufi gets remixes by a stellar roster of admirers and fellow boundary busting artists – including Bibio, Broadcast & The Focus Group, Bear In Heaven and others! The best tracks are the one that tweak Gonjasufi's unique vibes the most subtly – somewhat dense, yet still alluring atmophere carry the mood. Titles include "Ancestors (Dreamtime) Mark Pritchard Rmx)", "The Caliph's Tea Party (Broadcast & The Focus Group "DedNd" Rmx)", "Ageing (Dam Mantle Rmx)", "She's Gone (Oneohtrix Point Never Rmx)", "SuzieQ (Dem Hunger Bowel Blood Rmx)" and more. 12 tracks in all.
