✨✧ Witch DoctorHow Can I Win Your Love/All I Know, I Love You ... 7-inch
Cordial (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare Miami soul from Witch Doctor – a singer who works here in a groove that feels like a more stripped-down approach to the TK Records style from the same scene! By that, we mean that there's a funky current going through the music, but nice and lean – with moogy keyboards that resonate nicely with the vocals on "How Can I Win Your Love". "All I Know" has this chunky groove that's almost "Clean Up Woman" in style – but which gets all nice and weird with a spoken spot on the intro, and all sorts of vocal inflections throughout the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Lighthouse All Stars/Barney Kessel/Hampton HawesLighthouse At Laguna ... LP
Contemporary, 1955. Very Good ... $19.99
An unusual Lighthouse All Stars album – in that it features 3 different sets of artists in the spotlight – but a unified record nonetheless, as all the work was recorded on the same evening! The core Lighthouse group dominates on most numbers – and features bassist Howard Rumsey at the lead, plus Bud Shank on alto and flute, Bob Cooper on tenor sax, Frank Rosolino on trombone, and Claude Williamson on piano. But on one track, the group's augmented by Barney Kessel – who handles the lead solo on "Round Midnight" – and on others, they step aside and let the Hampton Hawes trio come in and perform versions of "Walkin" and "The Champ". But given the presence of Cooper and Shank on horns, we're most partial to the All Stars tunes – and really dig their originals "Mood For Lighthouse", "Witch Doctor", "Blind Man's Bluff", and "Lady Jean". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Lighthouse/Contemporary pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging, with a small piece of stuck-on paper at the spine.)

MagnumFully Loaded ... CD
Jamie/Guyden, 1974. Used ... $9.99
A killer album of funk and soul! The group's got a nice warm sound, with lots of Fender Rhodes and mellow basslines – and they move between sweet ballad soul and sinister funky instrumentals! Best of all, though, they've got a great organ player who keeps putting in these nicely produced licks that get all flanged-out in a very groovy way. The whole album's the kind of lost funky classic we'd love to find on wax – but you'll have to settle for this CD reissue, because we almost never see the vinyl! Tracks include "Funky Junky", "Witch Doctor's Brew", "Evolution", "Natural Juices", and "It's The Music That Makes Us Do It". CD

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaColonial Man ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Sealed ... $11.99
A later album from Hugh Masekela – but still plenty darn hip, way more so than most of the other artists on the Casablanca label at the time! Hugh's South African groove is still very firmly in place here – mixed with a slightly warmer LA soul sound, but expanded with loads of great arrangements that get a lot more complicated than before – and which bring in some great keyboard and percussion bits. Sivuca makes a wonderful appearance on 2 tracks – using that blend of voice and accordion that sounds so great – and the whole record's got a depth and sense of soul that you'd never guess from it's silly title and cover! Titles include "Colonial Man", "Song For Brazil", "Vasco Da Gama", "For The Love Of You", "Witch Doctor", and "Cecil Rhodes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

SonicsLive At Easy Street ... LP
Revox, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 17.99
A reformed Sonics take the stage – and end up sounding surprisingly fierce and strong after all these years! The set was recorded in Seattle in 2015 – and the group get a few special guests dropping in from time to time – including Eddie Vedder, Ben Shepherd, Jason Kerston, Matt Lukin, Rod Moody, and others – who help leave their touches on tunes that include "The Witch", "Bad Betty", "Psycho", "I Don't Need No Doctor", "Cinderella", "Boss Hoss", "He's Waiting", and "Have Love Will Travel".

VariousReturn Of Jazz Funk – Killer Jazz Funk From Mainstream Vault Vol 2 ... CD
Mainstream/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
Massively funky work from the Mainstream Records catalog of the early 70s – some of the grittiest, most hard-hitting tracks recorded by the label at the time! Most of the tracks here are short, but pack plenty of punch – that rock-solid approach to jazz funk that Mainstream was putting down heavier than most other labels at the time – thanks to a top-shelf array of leaders, studio players, and arrangers in the mix! There's a number of tracks here that haven't been reissued as part of P-Vine's single album program on the label – making the compilation even more essential – and the 19 track album features over 75 minutes of music, more than enough to warrant the higher Japanese price. Titles include "Sweet Emma" by Don Burrows, "Mustang" by Sonny Red, "Red Clay" by Jack Wilkins, "Witch Doctor Bump" and "Boogie The Devil In" by The Chubukos, "Spinning Wheel" by Phoenix Authority, "Fire & Water" by Charles Kynard, "Family Affair" by Dave Hubbard, "Signifyin Gemini" by Lamont Johnson, "Freedom Jazz Dance" by Night Blooming Jazzmen, "Mother McCree" by Reggie Moore, "Let's Take The Long Way Home" by Arbee Stidham, and "Never Can Say Goodbye" by Johnny Coles.

Johnny Dyani & Okay TemizWitchdoctor's Son ... LP
Yonca/Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the hippest albums we've ever heard from bassist Johnny Dyani – and that's saying a lot, given his tremendous records of the 70s! The album's different than the album that Johnny recorded with fellow Blue Notes members on the Steeplechase label – and instead, the group here is led by percussionist Okay Temiz, and mixes Johnny's round, bold lines on acoustic bass with additional electric bass, plus clarinet and saxes too! The tunes are heavily rhythmic – still jazz, but with very strong global currents too – an even rootsier vibe than most jazz of the South African scene from whence Dyani came – in a mode that really seems to set him free. Johnny also plays a bit of piano, too – and the tracks are a mix of Dyani originals, plus Temiz arrangements of traditional Turkish tunes. Titles include "Gece", "Yesl Fener", "Ben Muslumanim", "Moriva", "Hepimiz Icin", "Elhamdulillah Marimba", and "Doktur". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Dyani With Witchdoctor's Son & Dudu PukwanaRejoice/Together ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A pair of albums from the legendary Johnny Dyani – packaged here in one great little set! Rejoice features searing live work from Johnny Dyani – a set that has the bassist opening up strongly in a trio with Mongezi Feza on trumpet and Okey Temiz on drums and percussion! Feza sounds even better here than usual – blowing these long, inventive solo lines that match the work of Ted Curson for 70s fire – really spurred on by Okey's creative changes, into a soulful space that may well be some of Mongezi's most spiritually expressive of the 70s! Dyani's bass is strong, and ever-present – never needing to dominate, but always felt as this rich pulse – and powerful melodic element at just the right moments. Titles include "Mad High", "Makaya Makaya", "Pukwana" and "Imbomgolo". CD also features an unreleased track from the same performance – the 20 minute "Mad High Revisited". Together is a record that really gets back to Johnny Dyani's roots in South African jazz! Although Dyani and his expatriates in the Blue Notes helped give London a new sound of avant jazz expression in the 70s, the music here returns to the warmer melodic style of their early 60s days – with loping rhythms that draw on regional tradition, and soulful interplay between the alto of Dudu Pukwana, tenor of Peter Shimmy Radise, and keyboards from Dyani – who shifts his instrument for this special recording! The group also features use of guitar, congas, whistles, and a South American harp – used in rhythmic ways that pulsate warmly – on titles that include "Kalahari", "Tula Tula", "High Priest", "Johnny's Kwela", and "Together".

✨✧ Pierre Dorge & New Jungle Orchestra with Stephen RileyBluu Afroo ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's a really great pairing going on here – the always-amazing sound of Pierre Dorge's New Jungle Orchestra, and the tenor of Stephen Riley – a guest who's brought into the fold after a successful European tour with the group, and a perfect match for their ever-inventive sound! Dorge's guitar sets the scene and colors the music right from the start – with plenty of the blue elements you might expect in the title – and Riley seems as if he's challenging all the other group members to do their best with the strength of his own tenor – a lineup that includes Tobias Wiklund on trumpet, Kennet Agerlhom on trombone, Jakob Mygind on tenor and soprano, Anders Banke on tenor and bass clarinet, and Irene Becker on piano and keyboards. The tracks are mostly originals by Dorge, plus a few by Becker – and they've got that angular, shape-heavy vibe that marks the work of the NJO – on titles that include "Dancing In The Jungle", "Aburu Kuwa", "Mingus' Birthday Party", "Witchdoctor In The Burial Mound", "Fulani", and "Blue Afriki".
