Johnny WinterByrds Can't Row Boats – The Unreleased Masters Collection 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99 27.99
A surprisingly great collection of early work from Johnny Winter – singles and studio tracks from the few years before he burst on the scene with Columbia Records at the end of the 60s – served up in a range of styles that include psych and folk rock, in addition to Winter's more familiar bluesy sounds! The collection features 36 tracks, all sourced from the original tapes – and presented at a level that's much better than any other previous attempt to look at Johnny's early years – with 21 titles that appear here for the first time ever! There's almost more of an LA early 60s vibe to the music than you'd expect – hence the play on The Byrds in the title – and the psychedelic numbers are perhaps some of the most revelatory here. Titles include "The World Turns All Around Her", "Easy Lovin Girl", "Parchman Farm", "Pneumonia Blues", "Sloppy Drunk", "Comin Up Fast", "Livin In The Blues", "Birds Can't Row Boats", "Goin Down Slow", "Don't Drink Whiskey", "32 20 Blues", "Bad News", "Ballad Of Bertha Glutz", and "Hook You".

Paul Winter & Carlos LyraSound Of Ipanema ... CD
Sony (Japan), Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
The sound of Ipanema in the 60s – served up here in a great partnership between American jazzman Paul Winter, and bossa composer Carlos Lyra! The album's an excellent bossa jazz session all the way through – with alto from Winter that's some of his sharpest on record in the 60s, and both guitar and vocals from Lyra – who's getting his American time in the spotlight here, in the way that Joao Gilberto got with Stan Getz! Yet this album's much more of a core bossa jazz combo set than the Getz/Gilberto records – with work from a quintet that includes Sergio Mendes on piano, Milton Banana on drums, and Sebatiao Neto on bass. Titles include "O Morro", "Voce E Eu", "Maria Ninguem", "De Quem Ama", "Lobo Bobo", and "Tem Do De Mim". CD

Paul Winter with Luiz Bonfa & Roberto MenescalRio ... CD
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. Used ... $13.99
This bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". CD

✨✧ Mark Charig, Keith Tippett, & Ann WinterPipedream (with bonus track) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1977. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really amazing little record – quite different than anything else we've ever heard from British trumpeter Mark Charig – and for good reason, too! This unique performance was improvised live in a country church – Charig exploring the space magically with his trumpet, while Keith Tippett plays away on the church's organ – making these really weird and wonderful sounds that create a similar vibe to some of the sparer improvisations you might hear from Sun Ra! The mix of organ and trumpet is amazing – and other cuts feature wordless vocal sounds from Ann Winter, which are equally haunting, but in a different way too. Titles include "Bellaphon", "Vega", "Ode To The Ghost Of An Improvised Past", "Pipedream", and "Pavanne". Also features the previously unissued "The Trio Gets Lost In The Magic Forest". CD

Ralph BurnsFree Forms/Winter Sequences ... CD
Verve/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1946/1951/1954. Used ... $6.99
2 very rare slices of work by arranger Ralph Burns – both of them unique! First up on the set is Free Forms, a modern jazz-meets-strings session that follows from Burns' exploratory "Introspection" title for the Jazz Scene collection (included here as a bonus track.) Ralph pens some inventive charts that utilize a 15 piece chamber orchestra as backdrops for his own bold lines on piano, as well as some key solo bits from Lee Konitz on half the tracks. Titles include "Places Please", "Cameo", "Lileth", "Spring Is", and "Someday Somewhere". The modern feel of that set is balanced by the more whimsical Winter Sequence – a 1954 record written by Leonard Feather, with 8 tracks named after each of Santa's reindeer (save for Rudolph.) The format's a lot less Christmasy than you'd expect – but there is a nice sort of Holiday bounce to the whole thing – a joyful and playful feel that's a nice contrast from some of Burns' more modern work. Players include Joe Wilder, Kai Winding, Herbie Mann, and Billy Bauer – and titles include "Donner", "Cupid", "Comet", "Vixen", and "Blitzen". CD

Shook (UK), 2008. Very Good ... $0.99
The first issue of a magazine that's destined to be huge – a publication that picks up the UK scene where Straight No Chaser left off – but one that's also in funkier Wax Poetics territory too! The magazine's got the same size and great look of SNC, but covers territory that's even more wider-ranging – with features on Leroy Burgess, Bhangra album covers, Nigerian music, Detroit underground, DJ Muro, Goya Distribution, and more – all nestled in nicely amidst bits of graff, nice graphics, and shorter features that expand out even more! There's some great reviews and other news in the issue too – and the whole thing's in bold color throughout. Magazine

✨✧ Golden EarringsWinter Harvest ... LP
Polydor (Holland), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Golden Earring's really opening up its groove here – getting past the straight jangle pop of their debut, and expanding their sound in ways that rival the changes going on with The Hollies or Hermans Hermits at the same time! A slightly soulful undercurrent emerges on a few tracks – almost a hint of the heaviness to come in the group's music, yet still mostly focused on rockish outlets here. And the instrumentation's getting a bit more complicated too – some really compelling lines that take full advantage of the great production for the record. Titles include "Another Man In Town"," Smoking Cigarettes", "In My House", "Don't Wanna Lose That Girl", "Tears & Lies", "Impeccable Girl", "Call Me", "Lionel The Master", and "There Will Be A Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear with some aging and pen on the back. Vinyl has numerous marks, that cause clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ VariousR&B Christmas – Icon ... CD
Universal, 1990s/2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary Christmas classics from the past few decades of soul music – a tightly-done set that brings together some of the best of the more recent Holiday cuts! The package is a nice contrast to some of the more classic Christmas soul collections on the market – such as those from Motown or Stax – and shows a continuing legacy in the evolution of Holiday soul – as some of these artists are reworking original tracks from the 70s – whereas many 70s soul artists were initially only serving up soul versions of more standard Christmas numbers. Titles include "Someday At Christmas" by Mary J Blige, "This Christmas" by Ashanti, "Baby It's Cold Outside" by Vanessa Williams & Bobby Caldwell, "Merry Christmas Baby" by Faith Evans, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Toni Braxton & Babyface, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of Year" by Patti LaBelle, "Winter Wonderland" by The Isley Brothers, "The First Noel" by Brian McKnight, and "Silent Night" by Boyz II Men.

Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy backings. Highlights include "No Sooner Said Than Done", which has some very weird processing on the guitar; "Full Compass", which has some nice hard drums; and "Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams", a mellow moody track.

✨✧ BohannonGittin Off ... LP
Dakar, 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Tremendously tight grooves from Hamilton Bohannon – tunes that have this amazing way of wrapping together the bass, drums, and guitar – all in this fast-chugging style that's plenty funky all the way through! Bohannon was one of the most minimal of his 70s funk contemporaries – and has this way of really focusing in on one key rhythm, then rolling it out with incredible tightness – slowly changing things with some slight phase shifts in tone or timing, but always returning to the core of the tune. The approach is maybe even more striking here than on his previous records – and far grittier than on his later 70s work, too – and at some level, the vocals are almost thrown in as an afterthought, once Bo and the combo get things grooving! Titles include "Come Winter", "South Africa 76", "Feel Good At Midnight", "Gittin Off", and "I'm In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Crystal WindsFirst Flight ... CD
Cash Ear/Escrow (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
A mellow soul classic from Chicago – and one of the last great records to come out of the city's hip 70s soul scene! We know very little about Crystal Winds – save for this excellent record, one of the few titles issued on the short-lived Cash Ear label, a south-side imprint in the tradition of 70s powerhouse labels like Curtom or Chi-Sound. The work's got a wonderfully polished feel – lots of jazzy harmonies on the vocals, and a smooth midtempo groove that reminds us of some of the best work on Fantasy Records, especially those handled by Wayne Henderson and At Home Productions. Includes a great jazzy stepper called "Signs of Winter's Time", plus other great tracks like "So Sad", "Love Ain't Easy", and "It's A Wondrous Thing". CD

Torun EriksenGrand White Silk ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
Torun Eriksen just seems to get better and better as the years go on – a singer/songwriter who should be really hitting international fame with records like this – and not just stuck in the farther reaches of the Scandinavian scene! Ericksen's got a warmly flowing sense of soul to her vocals, but nicely chooses to work with offbeat instrumentation – mostly arranged here by guitarist Kjetil Dalland, who's never too gimmicky, but has a way of making familiar sounds unfamiliar in the ways that he opens them up – just slightly offsetting the straightness of Torun's vocals, to point towards here more compelling turns of phrase. The album's got a fair bit more warmth than other sessions on the Jazzland label, but also is, like the other great work on that imprint, quite far from conventional. Titles include "Winter Today", "Right Here", "More", "Take My Time", "Downhill", "Compromise", and "Grand White Silk". CD

David FriesenStar Dance ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the more compelling sessions from the left side of the Inner City jazz label of the 70s – work that's partly fusion, but with plenty of aspects that push it far from the mainstream! Leader David Friesen plays acoustic bass on the set, but he's in a group with John Stowell on electric guitar, and the mighty Steve Gadd on drums – whose propulsive approach really drives the sound of the record strongly on some of the group numbers. Reedman Paul McCandless plays oboe and English horn, both unusual choices, but instruments that work well here – with an angularity that matches soprano sax usage in fusion during the 70s, although a bit warmer at times. Tracks are somewhat short, and include some really compelling solo numbers – recorded with a wonderfully round, soulful sound. Titles include "Winter's Fall", "Duet & Dialogue", "Mountain Streams", "A Little Child's Poem", "1 Rue Brey", "Star Dance", and "Children Of The Kingdom". LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty darn great set that captures bits from all of Stan Getz's bossa nova recordings for Verve! The set's got a whopping 5LPs, and it features Getz working with the likes of Joao Gilberto, Luiz Bonfa, Charlie Byrd, Gary McFarland, Laurindo Almeida, Astrud Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Includes some unreleased versions of bossa tunes, plus a huge amount of other great stuff – like "Ebony Samba", "Baia", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba Dees Days", "Sambalero", "Eu E Voce", "Winter Moon", "Menina Moca", "Vivo Sonhando", and "Para Machuchar Meu Coracoa".

Bebel GilbertoBebel Gilberto ... CD
Ziriguiboom/Six Degrees, 2004. Used ... $0.99
Bebel's second album for Six Degrees – and quite possibly an even better album than the first! Not one to rest on the laurels of her success of recent years, Bebel seems to diverge a bit from the sound of her initial hit – going for a deeper approach to songwriting, and a musical style that shows she's got a lot more to offer than just bossa remix-styled vocals! The album kicks off with a wonderful take on Os Mutantes' English reading of the Tropicalia classic "Baby" – then rolls into a sweetly laidback set of tracks that borrow a lot from the bossa, but which also have some extremely personal songwriting touches. Overall, there's less beats and more natural instrumentation than before – and the album feautres guest work by Joao Donato and Carlinhos Brown, as well as some great use of strings! Titles include "Winter", "O Caminho", "Ceu Distante", "Next To You", "All Around", "River Song", "Every Day You've Been Away", and "Simplesmente". CD

A great little album of short groovy cuts from Dizzy – and actually quite hard to find on vinyl! Despite a title that sounds a bit flowery, the grooves are nice and hard – and Dizzy's playing here with a combo that includes James Moody, Kenny Barron, Billy Butler, and Candido. The sound isn't as funky as the records that Dizzy would later cut for Perception, but it's getting pretty close at times – especially on the tunes that have a nice Latin soul feel. Titles include "Summer Samba", "Bang Bang", "Mas Que Nada", "Tequila", "Winter Samba", and "Get That Money Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

A weird little record that's a bit hard to peg – not really jazz, but also not really anything else as well – kind of it its own special category that fits the "keyboard fantasies" title! Beverly Glenn-Copeland plays Yamaha and Roland keyboards, with a definite 80s sound – but also a bit more warmth than you might expect – on these spare, tuneful tracks that often feature a bit of her own vocals, but layered in ways that still mostly seem to have the keyboards in the lead. The whole thing's maybe on the sweeter side of Suzanne Ciani's spectrum – but about as unique as and Beverly's own thing too. Titles include "Slow Dance", "Ever New", "Winter Astral", "Let Us Dance", and "Sunset Village". LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $14.99
A playfully swinging set from trombonist Tyree Glenn – working here in a nicely offbeat style that also includes a bit of vocals as well! Glenn's got a great way with the muted trombone – working the end with a wah wah approach that's certainly got its roots in trad jazz, but which also comes across here with a classy swinging 50s style – thanks to strong small combo backing from Tommy Flanagan, Charlie Potter, and Jo Jones. The album should sound hokey, but it doesn't – thanks to a richly expressive style by Glenn, one that's got more than enough soul to get past the gimmicks. Titles include "Angel Eyes", "Love For Sale", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "If I Should Lose You", "I've Got The World On A String", "If Winter Comes", "Yesterdays", and "Stairway To The Stars". CD

The group sport 3 trumpets, piano, bass, and some very strong percussion – plus vocals in both English and Spanish, which makes for a perfect back and forth mood to the set, handling both straight Latin and Latin Soul numbers with ease!

There's more electric instrumentation in the mix, and arrangements that have the band stepping out more strongly with some rockish inflections, even though the overall approach is still pretty darn folksy – and handled with that really unique, really personal style that makes the group one of the best of the Brit folk scene from the period.

The album's a treasure through and through – one of the greatest documents of 60s soul from the Chicago scene – filled with sublime original compositions by a young Curtis Mayfield, set to great arrangements from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is immaculate – a groove that's slightly stepping, gently lilting – just enough to get things moving, but with plenty of care not to smother the fragile harmonies of the group. And as on other of the best ABC albums by The Impressions, there's not a hint of filler here – just one great track after another, with titles that include "Amen", "I Made A Mistake", "Don't Let It Hide", "Keep On Pushing", "Somebody Help Me", "Long Long Winter", and "I've Been Trying".

People Get Ready is one of the greatest albums ever from The Impressions – and a set that takes their work to a whole new level, by bringing in an even more righteous sound! The core elements of the group's 60s genius are all in place here – compositions from Curtis Mayfield, arrangements from Johnny Pate, and sublime harmonies from the group. But there's also something extra too – a new level of consciousness that's creeping into the music, hinting at the more righteous subject matter of later years – but with a much more subtle approach. All tracks are great – and titles include "See the Real Me", "Woman's Got Soul", "We're In Love", "Can't Work No Longer", and "Emotions". CD

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 2 – Welcome Home (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A tremendous second step for Chicago soul legend Walter Jackson – packaged here with a huge amount of bonus tracks as well! The core album is a sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine". Added to the original album are 7 more rare tracks pulled from singles – some of the true gems in Jackson's 60s career for Okeh – with titles that include "Deep In The Heart Of Harlem", "Cold Cold Winter", "That's When I Come To You", "Special Love", "One Heart Lonely", "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", and "The Folks Who Live On The Hill".

There's elements of soul, jazz, and funk bubbling throughout most of the record – but the group's also got influences that span the globe, and which bring about a sound that touches on many cultural horizons – not in a cloying way, but in the kind of warmly integrated feel that you'd hear in the work of Joe Clausell or some of the best work on Spiritual Life. In fact, you could almost think of Jazzhole as kind of a soul-based alternative to the dance-oriented work of those scenes – the best parts of New York coming together in a really unified sound. Titles include "Dancing In My Head", "What Kind Of Love", "Pillow Talk", "Winter Sky", and "Hush". CD
