Bill Cosby (aka Badfoot Brown)Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band ... LP
Uni, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A funky masterpiece from Bill Cosby – hardly the sort of record you might expect from all of his years on mainstream TV! This set was cut back when Bill was a much hipper cat on the LA scene – and it was the start of a brief all-instrumental run with his Badfoot Brown ensemble – a group who's not named in the notes on the record, but who offer up some seriously funky grooves! Bill supposedly plays keyboards himself – some really mad electric piano that's often repetitive, cyclical, and really hypnotic – a tripped-out style that's more funk than jazz, and which is easily one of the best parts of the record. But the rhythms are great too – equally hypnotic, and build up from bass, organ, guitar, and this whomping sort of drum part – echoing strongly in the background and really bringing a spooky feel to the set. Side one includes the amazing "Martin's Funeral" – sampled famously by Tribe Called Quest, and a 15 minute jam that's inspired by the funeral of Martin Luther King. Side two features "Hybish Shybish", an even longer track that's sort of an improvised jazz game – and which features tripped-out instrumental trading that's simply amazing. The whole record is really mindblowing – a messed-up jam session that's well worth the legend that's been built up around it over the years – and we're hard-pressed to think of another album like it! And as a special bonus, the package features these really long notes written by Bill Cosby himself – words that are as unusual as the music, and a side of him that's hardly been shown again.

Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A hastily assembled album designed to cash in on the success of The Foundations' huge hit "Build Me Up Buttercup" – and one that features one side of studio material, and one side of live material. The set's got a few originals – such as "Build Me Up Buttercup", "Any Old Time", and "Back On My Feet Again" – plus soul covers like "Harlem Shuffle", "Am I Groovin You", and "Comin Home Baby", all done in the group's slightly beach-ish style.

Uni, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Wild Quincy Jones score for this lost film starring Sidney Poitier. There's a wide mix of material on here – with some soul tracks by The Mirettes and Ernestine Anderson, some bluesy stuff by Nate Turner, and a few groovy instrumentals by Quincy, including "Slum Creeper" and "Up Against the Wall". Also includes the tasty instrumental groover "Main Squeeze"! LP, Vinyl record album

Lucifer (Mort Garson)Black Mass ... LP
Uni, 1971. Sealed ... $43.99
This is one of Mort Garson's craziest moog records ever, or as the label says: "Moog Goes Supernatural with Eerie Electronics". Ostensibly a satanic sort of thing, this is actually a wild cool mix of moog and early synthesizer effects, over a bunch of original compositions with no sorts of "hokey" arrangments. Very noisy in parts, and pretty growly with cool cool sounds. Did you expect anything less from Mr. Mort? Titles include "Exorcism", "ESP", "Witch Trial", "Solomon's Ring", and "Black Mass".

Hugh MasekelaPromise Of A Future ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Classic work from Hugh Masekela – and the album that pushed him over the top! The record features his version of "Grazin In The Grass", a runaway instrumental hit when it was issued – and a sly little groover that was based upon some earlier South African pop melodies that Hugh copped from his roots. The group's a tight little quintet with Al Abreu on tenor and soprano sax, William Henderson on piano, Chuck Carter on drums, and Henry Franklin on bass. The whole thing's great – and tracks include "Stop", "Bajabula Bonke", "There Are Seeds To Sow", "Vuca", "Almost Seedless", and "No Face, No Name, and No Number". LP, Vinyl record album

Vigrass & OsborneQueues ... LP
Uni, 1972. Very Good Trifold ... $6.99
We don't know much about the duo of Paul Vigrass and Gary Osborne, but they come together here with a wonderful harmony sound – a mode that's somewhere between the A&M work of Lambert & Nuttycombe, and maybe the best America albums of the 70s – set to these great arrangements that feature lots of cool keyboards from sound library genius Alan Hawkshaw! Jeff Wayne arranged and produced the set – and his touches here clearly make him the third member of the group – as the care of presentation really makes the album way different than it might be otherwise – one of those really unique, really special little 70s records that never got its due at the time. Titles include "Men Of Learning", "Virginia", "Sail Away", "Forever Autumn", and "Don't You Worry". LP, Vinyl record album

An obscure little soul record on UNI. Not particularly good, but it does feature some nice Chicago soul arrangements by Donny Hathaway, Tom Washington, and Riley Hampton. The set list also includes a number of originals by Donny Hathaway – written in conjunction with either Curtis Mayfield, Leroy Hutson, or Roy Ayers! These titles include "Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Gone Away", "You'll Never Be True", and "Our Ages Our Hearts". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brian HylandBrian Hyland ... LP
Uni, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real departure in the career of Brian Hyland – and light years away from his earlier fame as a teen pop singer! The Hyland of this record is a brooding one – mature, sometimes slightly folksy – but also able to draw on a wealth of soul, blues, and other musical references that were never part of his earlier music. The album unites Hyland with another older 60s star – Del Shannon, who wrote some of the songs, played guitar, and also produced the album. Shannon, like Hyland, was at a similar head-searching point in his career – and was a perfect foil for the new ideas that were bubbling around in Brian's head. There's a strangely somber feel to the set – handled partially by intimate guitar work, but also by some large, but gentle arrangements that use strings sparingly to create the same sort of sad, evocative sounds that you might expect from a Tim Hardin album. Hyland actually scored a hit with the album's great remake of "Gypsy Woman", but the original tunes are really the best – and include "On The East Side", "Mail Order Gun", "I'm Without You", "Driving Me Crazy", and "You & Me".

Earth OperaEarth Opera ... LP
Elektra, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A great debut LP by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – and deserve more than sidebar status in the book of modern music history! Earth Opera incorporated many styles into a sound that may not seem uncommon today, but was idiosyncrastic and unique in it's day, and still sounds great! The group was born from the collaboration of Peter Rowan and a young David Grisman, who recruited the rest of the members from the Boston Be-In and built an east coast take on the sounds that were sweeping California in the mid and late 60s. There's some nice jazzy influence creeping in to the bands singer/songwriter-plus vibe, with 10 songs in all, including "The Red Sox Are Winning", "As It Is Before", "Dreamless", "To Care At All", "Home OF The Brave", "The child Bride", "Close Your Eyes & Shut The Door", "Time & Again", "When You Were Full Of Wonder", and "Death By Fire".

Atlantic, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
One of Mose's best albums for Atlantic – an ambitious session that features larger arrangements backing him up, making for a much fuller sound than on other records! The album includes a greatly grooving version of "Wild Man On The Loose" – done with this cool sneaky organ – and lots of the other tracks feature strong horn parts that flesh out the sound, and give a nice edge to Mose's vocals. Other titles include "On The Run", "Somebody Gotta Move", "No Exit", "I'm Smashed", and "Hello There Universe". LP, Vinyl record album

Art BlakeyNight In Tunisia (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good- ... $78.99
One of a number of Art Blakey albums titled after "Night In Tunisia" – and most likely the best! The tune is a perfect fit for the Blakey Jazz Messengers format – long, rhythmic, really stretching out, yet allowing plenty of space for the horn players to solo. Players include Bobby Timmons on piano, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor – a killer lineup that's in really classic form here – driven on nicely by Blakey's drums and bass work by Jymie Merritt. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", with Blakey thundering through impeccably – plus the tracks "Yama", "Kozo's Waltz", and a version of Timmons' great "So Tired". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersTheory Of Art (aka A Night In Tunisia – RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A reissue of one of Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides from the late 50s, a killer album that sports a great lineup of the Jazz Messengers that included Jackie McLean, Johnny Griffin, Bill Hardman, Sam Dockery and Spanky DeBrest. The three of them sparkle and shine with the sort of brilliance that Blakey's leadership brings to the group, and they wail their way through a 13 minute long reading of "Night In Tunisia", with excellent solos all around, and the other cuts "Theory Of Art", "Couldn't It Be You?", "Evans", and "Off The Wall". This reissue adds the bonus number "Social Call" recorded for RCA at very nearly the same time, but with a larger group that features Wynton Kelly in place of Sam Dockery, plus the addition of Lee Morgan, Sahib Shihab, Melba Liston and Cecil Payne in the horn section.

Junie C Cobb & His New Hometown BandChicago – The Living Legends ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A trad-revival set recorded on Chicago's south side in the early 60s – part of an excellent series on Riverside, seeking to re-discover some older jazz and blues greats who were languishing in the Windy City at the time! Junie C Cobb plays mostly piano on the date, but also sings on one number too – in a style that's got plenty of bluesy undercurrents, particularly on the numbers that feature vocals by Annabelle Calhoun. Other group members include Leon Washington on tenor, Fortunatus Fip Ricard on trumpet, and Harlen Bobby Floyd on trombone – and titles include "Be Mine", "Just Because Of You", "Swing Your Hurdy Gurdy", "Once Or Twice", and "Belligerent Blues".

African Head ChargeOff The Beaten Track (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1986. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
The title and cover definitely get the vibe of the record right – as African Head Charge continue to go off the beaten track with their unique blend of sounds! In the generation before downtempo, these guys were pretty darn unique – and key forerunners in blending together rootsy elements, dubby production, and some very sweet electronics and effects, too – all in a mode that's inspired by Jamaican originals, but taken to much headier territory in the hands of Adrian Sherwood. Titles include "Off The Beaten Track", "Some Bizarre", "Belinda", "Language & Mentality", "Throw It Away", "Conspiring", "Release The Doctor", "Down Under Again", and "Over The Sky".

✨✧ AirtoVirgin Land ... LP
Salvation, 1974. Very Good+ ... $7.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Lola AlbrightDreamsville ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
A really unique session of vocal jazz – and one of the few ever directed by Henry Mancini! Lola was best known for her work on TV in the show Peter Gunn, but despite her cheesecake looks, she's actually a pretty nice singer – with a dusky, late nite sort of sound that's perfect for the Mancini backings on the set. The album features a fair number of original Mancini tunes – all in the moody mellow mode as the more famous "Dreamsville" title track – and Lola burns in a nice smokey tone, on tracks that include "Sorta Blue", "It's Always You", "Soft Sounds", "Slow & Easy", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Two Sleepy People", and "Brief & Breezy".

Lorez AlexandriaAlexandria The Great ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A beautiful album from Lorez Alexanderia – one of her two excellent sessions for Impulse! The record was cut after Lorez recorded some great sides for the Argo label – and it works off the strength of those sides, taking her unique vocal approach, forged in R&B, but smoothed by jazz, into a whole new level of expression! The backing is great – small combo, with featured musicians who include Bunk Shank and Paul Horn on reeds, and Victor Feldman and Wynton Kelly on piano – all working with moody, soulful arrangements that are a perfect accompaniment to Lorez' beautiful voice. Includes the cuts "Get Me To The Church On Time", "Satin Doll", "Show Me", "The Best Is Yet to Come", "I'm Through With Love", and 5 more! LP, Vinyl record album

Lorez AlexandriaDeep Roots ... LP
Argo, 1962. Good ... $14.99
One of the greatest records ever recorded by vocalist Lorez Alexandria – and a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer! Backing is by a small Chicago trio that includes John Young on piano, Vernel Fournier on drums, and George Eskridge on bass – but the arrangements of the tracks, and Lorez's unique interpretations drive the tunes into territory that's surprisingly advanced for the 1962 date of the session. You'll recognize most of the tunes – but as the old adage goes, it's not the song, but the singer – and you'll hear Lorez crafting a rich tapestry of sound and emotion from titles like "No Moon At All", "I Was A Fool", "Detour Ahead", "Travlin Light", and "I Want To Talk About You". The album's a gem – right up there with her best work ever! LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic 70s material by this unique Brazilian combo! The sound is perhaps a bit less funky than some of their other records, but the songwriting is excellent, and the production is top notch – in a way that opens up the voices and gives the record a lot more soul than usual. Filled with beautiful tracks of subtle beauty – and titles that include "Dona Flor E Seus Dois Maridos", "Sexto Sentido", "Chuculatera", "Toro De Lagrimas", "Maldita Hora", and "Diacho De Dor", with a guest appearance by Maria Crueza.

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLive – Part 2 ... LP
BYG (Japan), 1969. Very Good+ ... $36.99
Rare, rare vinyl pressing of this seminal work from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – recorded during their most creative period ever! The album was recorded live in October of 1969 – at a time when the group had pulled up roots and moved to France for a few years, bursting on the European scene with unique creativity that was not getting the recognition it deserved in their hometown of Chicago. The studio sets from this time are already the stuff of legend, and have thankfully made it back on reissue heavily the past few years – and this brilliant live set stands perfectly next to them – matching any of the LPs in the Great Black Music series on BYG/Actuel for sheer creative brilliance and soulful energy! Fontella Bass joins the group for a bit of vocals on the lengthy "Bon Voyage", which is divided up into two side-long sections. LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersCoffy – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good ... $79.99
What can we say? This is one of the greatest soul soundtracks ever! In a market that was dominated by the big-selling Shaft and Superfly albums, Roy slipped in this masterful blend of jazzy vibes and wah wah funk that's easily one of the best-composed records of the blacksploitation genre! The album's much more unified than your average funky soundtrack – and each track moves between styles that you'd hear on any of Roy's great albums from the time. There's heavy funk on the track "Brawling Broads", cool vibes and electric piano on "Aragon", off-beat jazz on "Coffy Sauna", and great soul on cuts like "Coffy Is The Color" and "Coffy Baby". Wonderful all the way through – and another jewel in the already-big crown of the great Roy Ayers! LP, Vinyl record album

Benny BaileySerenade To A Planet ... LP
Ego (Germany), 1976. Very Good+ ... $89.99
One of the greatest jazz records ever! By the time of this 1976 release, trumpeter Benny Bailey had already had quite a history – working with Quincy Jones in his early years, and recording for MPS with the likes of Nathan Davis and the Clark Boland Big Band, as well as some of the best other players in Europe. This set's Benny's masterpiece – a soulful batch of tunes that feels like it was lifted from the catalog of Strata East, but which is played by a quintet that features Europeans Ferdinand Povel on tenor, Joe Haider on piano, and Isla Eckinger on bass – as well as American Kenny Clarke on drums. The vibe is perfect – and the group's harmoniously searching with a strong modal groove on nearly every track. Titles include "Aquarian Moods", "Neptunis", "Little B", and "The Kicker". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear and two slightly-bumped corners – but this is still a very nice copy.)
