Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, & OthersSuper Black Blues, Vol 2 ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
A weird little set on Flying Dutchman – a live set that features the talents of Leon Thomas, T-Bone Walker, Eddie Vinson, and Joe Turner on vocals – plus instrumental backing by players that include Elvin Jones, Wynton Kelly, Howard Morgan, Earl (aka Neal) Creque, and Richard Landrum. The groove here is a mix of blues and funky soul – hipper than the usual blues set of the time, especially on the Leon Thomas tracks "Welcome To New York", "Damn Nam (Aint' Goin To Vietnam)", and "Disillusion Blues". Leon sings lead vocals on half the album – and other tracks include "Sail On", "Stormy Monday Blues", "I Had A Dream", "Person To Person", and "Honey Hush". LP, Vinyl record album
(In great shape!)

✨✧ Leon ThomasSpirits Known & Unknown ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from Leon Thomas – easily one of his greatest albums ever, and a set that was recorded at the same time he was working with Pharoah Sanders! Thomas really rose to fame on Sanders' classic "The Creator Has A Master Plan" – and this set really takes off from that moment – letting Leon spin out some spiritual vibes of his own, and step into a few fresh new styles as well! The album's plenty righteous right from the start – partly because the lineup includes James Spaulding on alto and flute, Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and the enigmatic "Little Rock" on tenor – who is actually Pharoah Sanders – but also because Leon serves up a shorter take on "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – done in a great style! The album also features a classic vocal take on Horace Silver's "Song for My Father", with lyrics that we totally love – plus the frenetic "Malcolm's Gone" – and the tracks "One", "Echoes", "Let The Rain Fall On Me", and "Damn Nam". LP, Vinyl record album

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that situation – kind of a quickie project issued by Mainstream Records to cash in on the hit – but it's also an amazing bit of lost funk, and a record that's lasted for years in the hearts of beatheads! The group's a studio combo headed by Richard Fritz – and includes funky drummer Paul Humphrey, organist Charles Kynard, and guitarist David T Walker – all players we can trust to keep things groovy. The record does include a version of "Soul Makossa" that's pretty great – but even better is the breakbeat classic "House Of The Rising Funk", apparently the same version of the track that was issued on a 45 under the name The Chubukos. Other nice ones include "Kissing My Love", "Hot Mud", "Get It", "Hot Doggin", and "Let Me Do My Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Blues Quintet Plus OneIntroducing The Afro Blues Quintet Plus One ... LP
Mira, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Excellent work from this totally sweet west coast Latin combo – a wonderful group who mixed Latin percussion with piano and vibes – in a manner that's similar to some of Cal Tjader's best Verve work of the 60s! Some tracks also make nice use of flute or alto sax – creating a snakey feel that really adds a new dimension of light and color to the tunes. The whole set's a great blend of Latin rhythms, jazzy solo work, and some mod 60s touches – and titles include "Monkey Time", "Afro Rock", "Let My People Go", "Walk On By", "Moses", "Liberation", and "Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Monty AlexanderLove & Sunshine ... LP
MPS, 1974. Very Good- ... $3.99
One of those wonderful Monty Alexander albums from the 70s – recorded for the MPS label, and with a very different vibe than some of his later albums in the US! There's a warmth, flow, and soul here that comes through instantly – a way of fitting the piano right in with the rhythms, so that the tunes have this gentle glow and inherent warmth that really makes them sparkle! Part of the energy comes from the rhythm section – a trio that features Ernest Ranglin on guitar, Eberhard Weber on bass, and Kenny Clare on drums – and Weber's bass work is especially good, and there's lots of nice round funky moments in some of the best tracks. Titles include "Feel Like Making Love", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", and "SKJ". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a split top seam, tape along the bottom seam, and a name in marker on the front & back.)

Lorez AlexandriaHarlem Butterfly – Lorez Alexandria Sings The Songs Of Johnny Mercer Vol 2 ... LP
Discovery, 1984. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Another soulful set of jazz standards that pairs the great Lorez with a group led by Gildo Mahones. Gildo's always been one of the best piano players we've heard accompaning a vocalist, and his work with Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross is the stuff of legends. This group has the added benefit of good tenor work by Herman Riley, and the band swings well with Lorez as she soulfully makes her way through tracks like "Mandy Is Two", "Skylark", "Harlem Butterfly", and "P.S. I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a name in marker.)

Lorez AlexandriaHow Will I Remember You? ... LP
Discovery, 1977. Very Good+ ... $23.99
A great album from the late 70's, featuring the excellent jazz vocalist backed by a totally tight group led by Gildo Mahones. The sound is deep and loud, and there's some nice phat bass on here, particularly on the intro to "Baltimore Oriole", which has a nice break sound at the beginning. A great track, with a nice jazz dance feel to it! Other titles include "Little Boat (O Barquinho)", "Until It's Time For You To Go", "Perhaps", and "Greatest Love Of All". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light staining & a name in marker.)

Savoy, 1955. Very Good ... $39.99
The only album we've ever seen from tenorist Chuz Alfred – an Ohio player working here with Ola Hanson on trombone and Chuck Lee on piano – plus support from Kenny Clarke on drums and Vinnie Burke on bass! Lots of unusual titles – including "Manta Wray", "Harlequin", "Chuz Duz", and "Message From Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove and RVG etch. Cover has a cut corner, name in marker, and some edge wear.)

Ernie AndrewsErnie Andrews Sings With The Fuzzy Kane Trio ... LP
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Ernie takes a hip trip from the west coast, and hooks up with the great Fuzzy Kane Trio – an extremely soulful outfit that flourished in the Baltimore scene of the late 60s, but only ever cut one other album on their own. Ernie's still in the pop soul vocal style of earlier albums – a mode that's got a bit of Lou Rawls, and some of the other ambitious crossover intentions of the LA scene of the 60s – but Fuzzy's work on the acoustic piano sweetly souls up the best tracks, and the album features some nice obscure tunes – which pushes it past the usual session of this sort. Titles include "Nearly", "July the 12th, 1939", "Say Hello To Yesterday", "Time To Hit The Street Again", "Free The People", and "Sometime When You're Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has wide masking tape on all seams and a name in marker. Labels have some marker.)

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $4.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo with deep groove.)

Roy AyersRunning Away (long, short) (promo version) ... 12-inch
Polydor, 1977. Very Good- (pic cover)... $14.99
Doobie-doo doobie-doo! One of the catchiest Roy Ayers dancefloor tracks ever – a bassy bumping thumper that wonderfully skirts the line between clubby and funky! The track's got female vocals singing along with the hook – all in a mode that's quite similar to the most uptempo work by Ramp – and the tune may well be best known for it's famous sample use by Tribe Called Quest on their classic "Description Of A Fool"! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo. Cover has wear, a large name in marker & a split top seam.)

Bagatelle11pm Saturday ... LP
ABC, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $3.99
A heck of a great batch of blue eyed soul tracks – much harder-hitting than you'd expect from the name of the group, and done with a "live studio" feel that really makes the session kick! The group's a big one, of mixed origin – of the sort of party club type acts that used to play a lot in the south in the 60s – and alongside original tunes, they also really groove on some upbeat numbers in a soaring Sam & Dave sort of mode. Titles include "I've Been Trying", "I'm Losing You", "Hey You", "Such A Fuss About Sunday", "Soul Man", "Shake", and "I Feel Good". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has wear & staining – worse along the opening.)

Pearl BaileySings For Adults Only ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
Not as "adult" as you might think – at least given the way the word is used today – but pretty great work by Pearl nonetheless! The tunes themselves are a bit "blue" in terms of subject matter – tales of girls with hot pants, loose love, and the kind of backroom hijinks that weren't always talked about so freely in the torch singer era. But given the time, and the setting, the tunes are still pretty soft on the subjects – and get the themes across through clever turns of phrase, slight innuendo, and just the right intonation at the right time – a style that makes Pearl Bailey perfect for the work! Titles include "I Want A Man", "She Had To Go & Lose It At The Astor", "The Physician", "Josephine", "Zip", "Flings", "You Can Be Replaced" and "Legalize My Name". LP, Vinyl record album
(Color bar pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam.)

Band Without A Name, Sidewalk Sounds, & OthersThunder Alley ... LP
Sidewalk, 1967. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A wild little soundtrack that's equal parts biker and hot rod – a great rocking rarity that really bridges two sub-genres of rockish sounds in the 60s! The set's one of Mike Curb's great soundtracks for AIP – and like some of the others, it features a set of lesser-known talents coming together in a batch of tracks that works equally well as a rock album or a soundtrack! Some cuts have vocals, other feature fuzzy guitars riffing away instrumentally – a bit more surf/hot rod than psych, but still nice and trippy at times – and the lineup features the great "Theme From Thunder Alley" by Band Without A Name –plus "Pete's Orgy" and "Mud Fight" by The Sidewalk Sounds, "Calahan's Theme" by The Lorraine Singers, "When You Get What You Want" by Annette, and "Riot In Thunder Alley" by Eddie Beram – which is an excellent drum and sitar track that is worth the price of the album alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ John Barry/Tom JonesThunderball ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Sealed ... $8.99
One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have been taken up by other artists as band or album names. Titles include "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Thunderball", "The Bomb", "Chateau Flight", "Bond Below Disco Volante", "Death Of Fiona", and "Switching The Body". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Count BasieApril In Paris ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good ... $7.99
One of Basie's biggest albums – but still a work of pure genius! "April In Paris" is one of the darkest jazz standards ever written, and it never sounded better than in this original version, which features that great ending in which Basie and the band stop, then start, then stop – leaving you completely unresolved at the finish. The group's a strong one – with Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Freddie Green, Sonny Payne, Marshall Royal, Henry Coker, Joe Newman, and Thad Jones – and tracks include "Shiny Stockings", "Midgets", "Mambo Inn", "Sweety Cakes", and "Corner Pocket". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieCount Basie With Joe Newman & The Boys In The Band ... LP
Storyville, 1954. Very Good ... $14.99
An obscure small group Basie session – and a nice one! The album was issued by the small Storyville label in Boston, and catches Basie with a combo that includes Joe Newman on trumpet, Frank Wess and Frank Foster on tenor, Henry Coker on trombone, and Freddie Green on guitar. The pianist on the set was originally listed as "Bill Bailey", due to contract regulations – but is the Count himself, playing both piano and organ, which we especially like! Titles include "Peter Pan", "Ingin The Ooh", "Confessin", "These Foolish Things", and "In Case You Didn't Know". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese Trio pressing, from the 80s. Cover has a large name in pen on both sides and notes on back.)
