Wiley & The CheckmatesWe Call It Soul ... CD
Rabbit Factory, 2008. Used ... $1.99
They call it soul, and we do too – a pretty good approximation of older southern soul modes from the 60s and 70s – served up by a group who really gets it right! The set was recorded at the legendary Playground Studios – and in Memphis too – and the overall feel is stripped-down southern soul, without any of the too-glossy, or too-modern touches that show up in other recent proponents of the genre. There's also a nice undercurrent of funk, too – thanks to some tight backings – and vocals are by a male and female singer, who shift during the set. Titles include "Up In Heah", "I Did My Part", "I Want Your Love In My Life", "Tryin To Get Next To You", "Have You Been Crying", and "Set Your Mind Free". CD

Teddi KingRound Midnight (plus Miss Teddi King) ... LP
Storyville/Trio (Japan), 1953. Near Mint- ... $33.99
A very cool Japanese-only record – one that brings together both of the 10" LP sessions from singer Teddi King! Round Midnight features vocals as dark as they are lovely – a sublime early set from singer Teddi King, served up in a style that's nicely perched between two decades of jazz! There's a moody, intimate feel here that really takes us back to an earlier era – a bit in the way that Lee Wiley often does at the same period, with a sound that's almost timeless, yet never outdated. The only backings here are piano from Beryl Booker – and in a way, the record's almost a duet outing between Teddi and Beryl, with a wonderfully intimate feel overall. Tracks include "Round Midnight", "What's New", "I Concentrate On You", "Little Girl Blue", and "It Never Entered My Mind". Next is Miss Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, from Trio – with insert!)

Charles MingusJazz Experiments Of Charlie Mingus (remastered edition) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1954. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
A pivotal album in the career of Charles Mingus – one that really has him honing his sound, and reaching for that trademark mix of modernism and raw emotion that set a whole generation on fire! The album's a lot more freewheeling than other Mingus material from the time – although still a bit more compact than the Atlantic or Columbia sides – and the group's staffed with key early interpreters of Charles' vision – including John LaPorta on alto, Teo Macero on tenor and baritone, Thad Jones on trumpet, Clem DeRosa on drums, and Jackson Wiley on cello – an instrument that really helps shade in some of the darker corners of the tunes. Titles include great early originals like "Four Hands", "Minor Intrusion", "Thrice Upon A Theme", and "The Spur Of The Moment" – plus his great take on "Stormy Weather", which is a bit stormier than most! LP, Vinyl record album
(2013 remaster. NOTE – This is a test pressing in a plain red sleeve, with just the artist name/title written on the label.)

VariousLast Kind Words – 1926 to 1953 ... LP
Mississippi, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $7.99
Deep, lost, or long-buried blues and gospel records from the old days – creaky 78s that creep deep into the soul – beautiful stuff from Lottie Kimbrough, Robert Petway, the Anglin Brothers and more! Great stuff, from chugging rustic guitar and voice blues, to some very moving pre-R&B gospel vocal gems, impeccable all around! Titles include "Last Kind Words" by Geechie Wiley, "Church Bells" by Kid Prince Moore, "Catfish Blues" by Robert Petway, "Rolling Log" by Lottie Kimbrough, "That's No Way To Get Along" by Robert Wilkins, "Money Cannot Buy Your Soul" by The Anglin Brothers, "Death Is Only A Dream" by Edward Clayborn and more.

✨✧ Doug CarnMy Spirit ... CD
Doodlin, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn impressive work from Hammond giant Doug Carn – a record that really recalls the brilliance of his famous records from the 70s – thanks to a righteous sound and a strongly spiritual vibe! The set features Doug on Hammond and Deszon Claiborne on drums – plus twin tenors from Howard Wiley and Teodross Avery, who soar out strongly on all numbers – criss-crossing their sound with a fullness that makes the group sound a lot larger than a quartet – and blowing these strongly soulful solos that match Carn's for nonstop energy and imagination. The record's way more than we expected – and is a lot more unbridled than some of the other titles on the Doodlin label – and although we haven't heard Doug on record in years, we can tell that his genius hasn't dimmed a bit. Titles include "My Spirit", "Fatherhood", "Chant", "Mr Kenyatta", "Eternal Triangle", and "Western Sunrise". CD

✨✧ VariousChimpin' The Blues – With Jerry Zolten & Robert Crumb ... LP
East River, 1920s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not just another collection of rare material from 78rpm recordings – and instead, a great little set that's definitely got a personality of its own! The package presents rare work from the collections of 78 diggers Jerry Zolten and Robert Crumb – the latter of whom created some great cover art for the compilation as well – and in addition to some very well-recorded material from the original discs, the set also features a few tracks of Crumb and Zolten "chimpin" – some quick patter that serves up specific details on the records, and opinions from both collectors. Titles include "Humming Blues" by Joe Linthcombe, "Rolling Log Blues" by Lottie Kimbrough, "Guenene Tini" by Cheikha Tetma, "Walk Right In" by Cannon's Jug Stompers, "Last Kind Words" by Geeshie Wiley, "Warm Wipe Stomp" by Macon Ed & Tampa Joe, and "Washboard Cut Out" by Bobbie Leecan's Need More Band.
