✨✧ Wood Brass & SteelHard & Heavy (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sugar Hill/Soul Brother (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The incredibly rare second album from Wood Brass & Steel – the mighty funk group we've loved for years for their landmark debut from the mid 70s! This sophomore set is from a few years later, and has the group honing their groove even more – working with these righteous currents in their music that expand the sound into territory that's almost a bit like Roy Ayers at times! As with Ayers, the vocals are often layered into the rhythms – sometimes sung by group members with this soulfully flowing current that has a subtle, sublime sort of vibe – and which works perfectly for the message in the music. Tunes are often in the faster side of midtempo – but never conventional club or disco at all – and there's this really special quality to the whole record, one that even tops the unique vibe of their first album. The original album was very briefly issued by Sugar Hill, during a time when the label was mostly doing hip hop – and is impossibly hard to find in the original pressing. Titles include "Open Up Your Heart", "Be Yourself", "Long Live Music", "Space Walk", "Fly With Music", "Superstar", and "Are You Busy". LP, Vinyl record album

Spirit Of AtlantaBurning Of Atlanta ... LP
Buddah, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame – and it's got an unusual style that's equally appealing to fans of funk, and fans of clubbier music – lots of tight playing, hard riffing, and longer grooves that soar along with impeccable grace. The whole thing's almost like the classic Wood Brass & Steel album – but with some rougher edges that make it even better! Includes the great tracks "Vine City" and "Messin Around", both of which are very long funk tracks, plus shorter cuts that are just as funky, like "Down Underground", "Freddie's Alive and Well", and "Buttermilk Bottom". Don't pass this up, it's a funky monster classic! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSoul On The Real Side #6 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
An all-classic volume of this wonderful series – one that offers up way more rare 70s tracks than on some of their previous editions – including a lot of cuts that we'd never heard before! Lots of this work is in a really unique spot – not funk, not mainstream soul, but also not disco or club either – and instead in a territory that's a bit pre-modern soul, when artists were turning towards upbeat modes, both in sound and spirit – but still mostly keeping things at a warmly personal level! Some of these tunes remind us of some of our favorite Chicago soul – like work from the Brunswick/Dakar label – but others have more of an east coast vibe, and the tunes flow together wonderfully in that way that really makes us know when we've stepped into something special. Titles include "Something New About You" by Silent Majority, "Funny How We've Changed Places" by Debra Anderson, "Thanks But No Thanks" by General Crook, "Woman" by The Nicky Newarkers, "You Got To Know Better" by Touch Of Class, "When A Boy Falls In Love" by Willie Hutch, "I Love You" by Weldon Irvine, "Soul Travelin (part 1)" by Gary Byrd, "Mr Magic Man" by Wilson Pickett, "I Need Your Love" by Clydene Jackson, "Open Up Your Heart" by Wood Brass & Steel, "I Trust You" by Billy Paul, "Now That You're Gone" by Sonny Turner & Sound Limited, "I Only Hurt Myself" by Lonnie Youngblood, and "Better Late That Never" by Diane Ducane.

VariousFuture World Funk Vol 2 – Further Adventures In Afro, Funk, Dub, & Future World Beats ... CD
Ocho (UK), 2000. Used ... $6.99
Excellent stuff – and surprising blend of tunes that really shows the growth in world beat consciousness that's taken hold of the London dancefloor scene! The set's compiled by DJs Russ Jones and Cliffy – and it's a perfect example of the way the pair blend together Brazilian beats, Latin grooves, and Afro funk influences at their hip sets held at the Notting Hill Arts Club. The cuts mix together recent tracks with the 70s foregrooves that inspired them – and titles include "In The Beginning" by Los Chicharrons, "Divers" by Boozoo Bajou, "Descarga Angixi" by Snowboy, "O Olho Do Lago (Sean Lennon rmx)" by Tom Ze, "Gur Nalon Ish Mitha (sax/whelan mix)" by Bollywood Brass Band, "Ijo Soul" by Orlando Julius, "Triptico" by Gotan Project, "Return To Bass" by Juttla, "Carimbo" by Nacao Zumbi, and "1Breath 1 Echo" by Rhubadub.

✨✧ Lectric WoodsLectric Woods ... LP
ABC, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
That's "Lectric Woods" – as in "electric woods", a supercharged sax album with a late 60s groove that's similar to the Brass Ring, but with a bit more punch. The notes don't say who's blowing the electro-charged sax (is it Phil Woods? Or Phil Bodner?) – but the sound is great, with kind of a straighter take on the Steve Marcus rock/sax groove, applied to some very groovy late 60s pop tunes, plus one or two originals. There's a very nice drummer in the group (again, not credited), and he gives the album a nice punch that makes for a few almost-break moments. Titles include "Spinning Wheel", "Soul Satellite", "Atlantis", "All", "The Dipper", "Bruce Bond", and "Aquarius". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil FranceSwimmer ... CD
Gondwana (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $7.99
Beautiful keyboard lines from Phil France – served up here in a mode that's partly jazz, maybe partly more laidback – and often in the kind of slow-building style we love on other records on the Gondwana label! There's almost a meditative vibe to the music – somewhere in the Carlos Nino/Miguel Atwood-Ferguson mode, but maybe more compact – as Phil's keyboards are mixed with light use of violin and cello, plus some additional sound elements as well – all in a way that makes us almost think that France would be great at scoring soundtracks, although these instrumental tunes have a nicely changed-up sense of complexity overall. Much deeper than just the usual "soundscape" album you might mistake this one for – with tracks that include "December", "Animator", "London Park Hotel", "Kubrick", "Joy Of Brass", and "The Swimmer".

Jerry Goldsmith/John WilliamsJericho/Ghostbreaker ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1965/1966. Used ... $18.99
2 great slices of lost 60s TV – both represented by wonderful soundtracks! Jericho was a short-lived WWII action drama that featured a driving, adventurous score by Jerry Goldsmith – one that has echoes of the series' military themes, but which also employs some of Jerry's more traditional modes of instrumentation for the period, include his creative use of woodwinds with percussion, heard more famously in spy films. The CD features 12 tracks from the soundtrack to Jericho – including "Two For The Road", "A Jug Of Wine A Loaf Of Bread & Pow", "Dutch & Go", "The Big Brass Contraband", and "Have Traitor Will Travel". The Ghostbreaker is an even cooler soundtrack – penned by Johnny Williams for a great one-off pilot that was never turned into a real show – and featuring some completely great music that ranks with Williams' better known action and comedy work of the 60s! The tunes are a mix of gentle themes, lighter tunes, and oddball "spooky" numbers that are especially great – often using weird instrumental effects to create an unusual mood. The main theme to the film is totally catchy – with these horns that vamp up and down in a muted and mysterious way – and titles include "Organ Piece", "Teaser", "Main Title", "The Spooked Skyscraper Strikes Again", "Don't Trip Over Diablo", and "Accent The Supernatural".

✨✧ Budd JohnsonBudd Johnson & The Four Brass Giants ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Budd Johnson was one of those players from the old days who was continually drawing praise from younger and hipper musicians – crediting Budd with a tone and talent that was forever an inspiration to them. Case in point is this 1960 session, issued as part of the hip Cannonball Adderley Presents series on Riverside – one in which Budd is given free reign to arrange the albums tracks, coming up with a nice batch of originals and interesting tunes that show him to be a much more complex player than might be expected. The players include a four piece trumpet section with Nat Adderley, Clark Terry, Harry Edison, and Ray Nance – and rhythm is by Tommy Flanagan, Joe Benjamin, and Herb Lovelle. Tracks include "Blues For Lester", "All My Love", "Trinity River Bottom", and "Driftwood". CD

✨✧ Charlie ByrdBrazilian Byrd ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good ... $4.99
Charlie Byrd gets some top-shelf treatment here – in a wonderful album of tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim, all recorded with full backing arrangements, and sound quality that's a lot better than some of Byrd's previous albums! The setting has Charlie's acoustic guitar right up front in the mix – mic'ed so close you can really hear his work on the strings – while light brass, woodwind, and string backings dance nicely, and more quietly, behind him. There's a very Verve-like approach to the whole record – obviously a market that Columbia were trying to reach with this one – and the album's easily one of Charlie's strongest for the label from the 60s. Arrangements are both by Byrd and Tom Newsom – and titles include "Dindi", "Jazz N Samba", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Corcovado", "Amor E Paz", "Samba Do Aviao" and "Amor E Paz".

Jaco PastoriusInvitation ... CD
Warner (UK), 1983. Used ... $7.99
A late session from Jaco Pastorius – one that features the famous bassist at the helm of his Word Of Mouth big band, recorded live in Tokyo with a very full and funky sound! Players in the group include Bob Mintzer on saxes, Don Alias on percussion, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Peter Erskine on drums, and Toots Thielemans on harmonica – plus an array of brass and woodwind players who expand the core sound tremendously. The overall style is more in a funky fusion mode than some of Jaco's other albums – and titles include "The Chicken", "Liberty City", "Invitation", "Soul Intro", "Reza", and "Fannie Mae". CD

✨✧ Wes MontgomeryGoin Out Of My Head ... LP
Verve, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Wes Montgomery's grooviest albums on Verve – a set that features his smooth chromatic work on guitar set to lively arrangements from Oliver Nelson! Nelson gives the set more of a "punch" than some of Montgomery's other Verve records – and the style uses a tight brace of brass and woodwinds as the backdrop for Montgomery's moody solo work. The tracks have a nice edgey quality, but also maintain a smooth stepping quality as well – and Wes' tone, as always, is sublime! Titles include "Golden Earrings", "Twisted Blues", "O Morro", "Boss City", and "Naptown Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
