Angel CanalesSabor ... CD
Alegre, 1975. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Possibly the greatest album ever from Angel Canales – a 70s salsa classic through and through, and one with great links between the New York scene and Canales' Puerto Rican roots! The tunes are wonderfully heartfelt throughout – sung with a youthful sense of soul that's far different than some of the more emotive modes of previous generations of Latin singers – in a way that really scored big with the younger generation at the time, and which makes Canales one of the key forces helping to change the sound of the music in the 70s. Instrumentation is nice and tight – acoustic small combo work with two trombones, trumpet, baritone sax, flute, piano, bass, and percussion – under musical direction by Juan Torres. Titles include "Lejos De Ti", "Perico Macona", "La Hiedra", "Sol De Mi Vida", "Sabor Los Rumberos Nuevos", and "El Cantante Y La Orquesta". CD

Angela BofillAngie/Angel Of The Night ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $18.99
A pair of soulful gems! Angie is Angela Bofill's sublime first album – a mixture of jazzy soul and soulful jazz, all put together with a sound that's really a cut above most of her contemporaries! As with Jean Carn or Phyllis Hyman, there's a sophistication to Angela's sound here that indicates roots in much hipper territory that were still pulling strongly on her work for this mainstream set – a sound that runs deeper than you might expect for such a commercially successful record, and which has really kept it alive for years. Part of the strength of the set is the jazzy backings given the music – arranged by Dave Grusin, and carried off by himself on keyboards, with other players who include Eric Gale on guitar, Dave Valentin on reeds, Steve Gadd on drums, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion. There's a warmly glowing feel to the record that's neither slick or commercial – and titles include "Children Of The World United", "Summer Days", "Rough Times", "This Time I'll Be Sweeter", and "The Only Thing I Would Wish For". Angel Of The Night is sweet jazzy soul from Angie Bofil – recorded in 1979 with Dave Grusin, who gives the album a smooth edge that really works perfectly with her vocals! The set's a perfect blend of the more soulful elements in the fusion scene of the late 70s, combined with Angie's warm vocal style and some excellent songwriting. Titles include "I Try", "Angel Of The Night", "What I Wouldn't Do", "Rainbow Child", "The Voyage", and a great cover of "People Make The World Go Round". CD

Duke PearsonAngel Eyes ... CD
Jazz Line/Muzak (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $22.99
A rare pre-Blue Note session from Duke Pearson – very mellow, very soulful, and with a quality that's unlike most of his later work! The album's a trio side, recorded for the Jazzline label, and it features Pearson on piano, Thomas Howard on bass, and Lex Humphries on drums – the last of whom brings in some wonderfully lyrical lines on the kit, very much in the manner of the free, dancing rhythms used on records with Donald Byrd. Pearson's piano has a sharper edge than usual – these dark, moody tones that are totally great – almost a rougher version of his later sound, with a great sense of depth. Bob Cranshaw's bass and Walter Perkins' drums are featured on one number – and titles include a killer take on "Jeannine", plus "Say You're Mine", "Le Carrousel", "Bags Groove", and "Exodus". CD

Minnie RipertonPerfect Angel ... LP
Epic, 1974. Very Good ... $11.99
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest female soul stars! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of mellow compressed LA styles and slicker funkier numbers that do the same thing for her Chicago-trained vocals that Rufus' backing did for that of Chaka Khan. Of course, it helps that she's got some superbly sensitive writing and arranging help by husband Richard Rudolph – and Stevie Wonder's definitely lurking in the background, too – not credited with production, due to contractual reasons, although he helped put most of the album together. Includes Minnie's huge crossover hit "Loving You", a perfect showcase for her beautiful 5 octave voice, plus the tracks "Our Lives", "Every Time He Comes Around", "Perfect Angel", and "Reasons".

✨✧ Dave BrubeckAngel Eyes ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis! Dennis had a way with a tune that often put dark corners in the back of lovely melodies – and this subtle sense of emotion is a perfect foil for the understated talents of Paul Desmond's alto work on the set. Brubeck himself is nice too – less trick-oriented than usual, in a way that lets us focus on the colors of his tone – and drummer Joe Morello and bassist Eugene Wright are in top form, as usual. Titles include "Violets For Your Furs", "Let's Get Away From It All", "Little Man With The Candy Cigar", "Will You Still Be Mine", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the last great album in the Ohio Players run for Mercury in the mid 70s – a set that's every bit as smooth, sexy, and funky as their other major label efforts from the time – and one that continued to refine the grittier funk of their roots! While the Players might be remembered for their over the top jams, the cuts here we love the best are the mellower steppers – tracks that still have plenty of funk in the mix, but hit a gentler groove, too – following the spacey soul legacy of "Sweet Sticky Thing". Titles on the album include "Glad To Know You're Mine", "Angel", "Merry-Go-Round", "Don't Fight My Love", "Body Vibes" and "Ohio". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Koch, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A totally fantastic set from the turn of the 70s, and one of Freddie Hubbard's most soulful, spiritual albums ever – a seminal chapter in the evolution of soul jazz – and a record that was a keen inspiration for changes to come on labels like Strata East and Black Jazz! The group here features Kenny Barron on both electric and acoustic piano – really stretching out with a hip, open sort of sound – possibly his first of this type on record – and other players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Patato Valdes on added percussion – giving a more complicated groove to the best numbers. Tunes are all long and well-penned – three by Freddie himself ("Eclipse", "Spacetrack", "Gittin' Down"), one by Kenny Barron ("Black Angel"), and one by Walter Bishop (the original recording of his classic "Coral Keys"!)

✨✧ Idris Ackamoor & The PyramidsAngel Fell ... LP
Strut (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Saxophonist Idris Ackamoor is a living jazz legend – but not the kind that's stale and stuffy, and instead a continuously vibrant player who's given us mindblowing music since his initial recordings with his Pyramids group in the 70s! This version of the Pyramids is different than that one, but they represent a continuing evolution of Ackamoor's rich spirit – his way of fusing spiritual jazz currents with global rhythmic inspirations – but all without every sounding as hokey as so many others who try for that space, and just fall flat! There's a sense of power and inspiration to Ackamoor's music that still moves us tremendously – and which, today, seems more urgent than ever – especially as Idris has seemed to set a new fire under his talents in the past decade or so, obviously more motivated by the need for social change than in his projects of more recent decades. The album's a mix of vocals and instrumentals – but the vocals are often more chant-like, or handled by the ensemble – at a level that further deepens the spirit of the sound. Titles include "Land Of Ra", "Papyrus", "Soliloquy For Michael Brown", "Message To My People", "An Angel Fell", "Tinoge", and "Warrior Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautifully crazy moog material from Ruth White – an artist who could sit on both sides of the moogy fence – approaching the instrument with a bit less of the pop styles of her contemporaries, but in ways that are still plenty darn compelling over the years! Most of the work here is of classical origin, but Ruth also adds in some additional electronics that further abstracts the tunes – and titles include "The Ball" by Bizet, "The Snow Is Dancing" by Debussy, "Gymnopedie No 1" by Satie, "The Flight Of The Bumblebee" by Rimsky-Korsakov, and "Anvil Chorus" by Verdi. Most tracks are in shorter, groovier versions! LP, Vinyl record album

Shroom Angel, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The never-issued album by this surprisingly great Texas group from the 70s – a mainstream rock combo who'd no doubt be blasting out of classic rock radio stations today, had they gotten their chance back in the 70s! Shotgun gigged hard in the Lone Star scene of the time, and really honed their skills to a tremendous point before cutting this rare album – a set that would stand easily next to the mid 70s best by groups like Bad Company or Foghat, with perhaps a bit of Joe Walsh sort of smirk as well. Yet the album was so good, they held it back and didn't issue it at the time – because they were talked into hoping for bigger fame, which never materialized – leaving this sweet little gem locked in the vault for all these years. Now finally let loose on the world at large – maybe too late for the classic rock generation that would have made it gold – but still in time for folks like us who can appreciate craft this great! Titles include "Rock Star Queen", "Straight Out", "Mercy", "Last Nite", "Play The Game", "Seems Like You Would Understand", and "In The Music". CD features 11 more bonus tracks – demos and radio performances! CD

Abstract OrchestraDilla ... LP
ATA (UK), 2017. New Copy ... About August 2, 2019
There's nothing abstract here – as the set's a fantastically-focused tribute to the late Jay Dee – put together in a style that's mostly jazz, but which also has some great vocal touches too! The music's roots are in hip hop, but the presentation here is awash in strong work on saxes, trumpet, and trombone – used over rhythms that are played live, and which have this warm glow that's like 70s jazz funk, filtered through the hop hop generation! Emphasis is on horn solos, but the set also features twin female singers – who provide some chorus vocals, and a warm link between the instrumental modes in a really great way. So maybe consider this both a soul and a jazz remake of the world of Dilla – and a great one too. Titles include "Welcome To Detroit/The Diary", "Dilla Mix 1", "Official/Fall In Love", "Love", "Angel"," King", "Two Can Win", "Raw Sh*t", "Workinonit", and "Stop". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jan AkkermanJan Akkerman ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A very different album than usual from Jan Akkerman – but in a really nice way! The album's not nearly as guitar-heavy and rock-leaning as some of Jan's other sets from the 70s – and has a bubbling sort of soul-based finish, one that's arranged by Akkerman with some help from Mike Gibbs – and which almost has a funky dancefloor appeal at times! The jazz component of the record is still relatively strong, in a tripped-out funky fusion way – but there's enough of a consistent pulse to the album to really keep things on track nicely! Includes the spacey "Pavane", which has great keyboards from Joachim Kuhn, and the nicely breaking "Streetwalker" – plus the cuts "Angel Watch", "Crackers", "Skydancer", "Floatin", and "Gate To Europe".

While it's tough to think of a jazz player having "hits" – given the low sales of jazz albums, even in the 60s – it's still the case that Ammons' sound was so strong, and so soulful, he had plenty of fans in the crossover market for some of his bigger recordings. The album does a good job of bringing some of those soul jazz gems together – mostly tracks from his early 60s, pre-incarceration years at Prestige, but a few later cuts that get a bit funky. Titles include "Jungle Strut", "Seed Shack", "Exactly Like You", "Didn't We", "Angel Eyes", "Ca'Purange", and "Canadian Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album

David Axelrod/Cannonball AdderleyMessiah ... LP
RCA, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $33.99
David Axelrod takes on Handel's Messiah – and the result is an amazingly complex set of music – very similar to his earlier albums on Capitol Records, and his Warner work with the Electric Prunes! If you love the Axe, you'll find plenty to love here – spare, dark orchestrations, often with a subtle hint of funk in the rhythms, some jazzy flourishes, and this bold sense of studio majesty that marks Axelrod as one of the most inventive producers of his time! The sound's one that gave birth to a whole generation of hip hoppers and beatheads – and the proceedings are conducted by Cannonball Adderley, with a feel that's similar to other Adderley/Axelrod high-concept sets – like Soul Of The Bible or Soul Zodiac. Titles include "Overture", "Worthy Is the Lamb", "Behold Recitative", "Comfort Ye My People", and "And The Angel Said Unto Them". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ray BarrettoAqui Se Puede ... LP
Fania, 1987. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Ray Barretto's peeking out from behind a door on the cover of this album – and the image is a great illustration of the general feel of the album! Instead of the shirtless, super-macho Ray of previous years – the record has a Barretto who's a bit more laidback and subtle – working in a mix of Latin jazz and more traditional modes that are all played beautifully by his group of very familiar players. There's a relaxed ease to the record that's a welcome change from work that some of Barretto's contemporaries were recording at the time – a maturing approach to salsa that keeps things interesting throughout! Ricky Gonzalez and Angel Fernandez share arranging credits – and Barretto is joined by Jimmy Delgado on timbales, Eddie Torres on bongos, Ricky Gonzalez on piano, Wilson Torres and Angel Fernandez on trumpets, and Jimmy Bosch on trombone. Tracks include "La Resbalosa", "Amor De Lujo", "Si Me Voy Para Mi Islita", "No Te Quedes Sin Bailar", and "No Me Paren La Salsa". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris BowdenTime Capsule ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1996. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
An underground classic from the London scene – a record that was hugely important to us in the early days of Dusty Groove, and which is still completely tremendous all these many years later! At the time, the album was the sort of ambitious undertaking that nobody else would have done – pre-Cinematic Orchestra, pre-Nostalgia 77, pre-any of those other groups that were inspired by vintage soundtracks, David Axelrod, and all sorts of higher ideas in groovy music! Chris Bowden is a saxophonist at the core – and a jazz-based one too – but he works here with these incredible arrangements of his own creation, folding in both funky and fulfilling elements – heavy drums, percussion, and keyboards – but also some great string passages, and even surprisingly strong use of clarinet at times – creating these snakey elements that offset his own soulful lead. The album was a landmark at the time – even if it was missed by most of the planet – and it's still tremendously powerful throughout – with titles that include "Forbidden Fruit", "Natural Selection", "Deaf Out", "Telescopic Three", "Sane", "Angel Falls", "Solo", "Love Lies Bleeding", "Epsilon", and "Time Capsule".

Parlophone, Late 60s. New Copy 4 x 7 inch set ... $31.99 34.98
A fantastic treasure for David Bowie fans – the first-ever vinyl appearance of some really wonderful material recorded right at a time when he was really finding his voice! A few cuts here are demos that offer very different versions of the better-known tracks, and other tunes are completely new discoveries all together – and, as with just about any other "bonus" Bowie rarities, the quality level is amazing – material that shows just how much genius he always brought to the game, as these are cuts that would have been classics from just about any other artist. Titles include "Mother Grey (demo)", "In The Heat Of The Morning (demo)", "Goodbye 3D Joe (demo)", "Love All Around (demo)", "London Bye Ta Ta (demo)", "Angel Angel Grubby Face (demo 1)", "Angel Angel Grubby Face (demo 2)", "Space Oddity (demo excerpt)", and "Space Oddity (demo w/Hutch)". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jimmy Briscoe & The Little BeaversMy Ebony Princess ... LP
Pi Kappa, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
An east coast harmony classic from Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers – a sweetly-voiced young soul group with a really positive sound! Jimmy and the group have a groove that's more mature than some of the other young soul acts to emerge in the wake of the Jackson Five – and the tracks on the set are a great balance of gentle ballads and more forceful numbers, done in modes that share a lot with some of the best New Jersey groups of the time, particularly those on the All-Platinum label. Production is full and rich – never too much so overpower the vocals, but with some wonderfully chosen instrumental touches from maestro Paul Kyser – but it's Jimmy's heartbreaking vocals that really drive the set. Titles include "My Ebony Princess", "I Only Feel This Way When I'm With You", "Theme From Forever", "Where Were You", "Pack Up", "My Fallin Angel", "Together", and "Country to the City".

One of the greatest albums by this sweet east coast vocal group – also known to folks as the Golden Apples album, because of the crate full of gold-covered apples on the cover. The album's got a wonderful mellow harmony sound – arranged and produced by Van McCoy, much more in the style of his early uptown soul work than some of his other more overblown mid 70s work. Features the sublime stepper "When You're Young & In Love", the hit "I'm Gonna Walk Away From Love", and the cuts "Until We Said Goodbye", "Keep In Touch", "Angel Don't Fly Away", and "Hook it Up".

Some of the tracks feature the group singing cuts that were made famous by other groups, all nicely redone with the group's unique male/female harmony style.

P&P/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $29.99
Tremendous grooves from one of the coolest club labels of all time – the legendary P&P family of labels, home to some of the weirdest, wildest, most experimental tracks to ever hit the dancefloor – yet all tracks that are pretty darn funky too! This 2CD collection is heavy on cuts from Cloud One – one of the most well-known P&P acts, often working with weird moogy electronics over funky club rhythms – a combination that still sounds as fantastic now as when Patrick Adams got the group going way back when – especially in the company of some of the other cool cuts that are on the collection too. Cloud One tracks include "Music Funk", "Funky Track", "Disco Juice", "Dust To Dust", "Spaced Out", "Charleston Hopscotch", "Atmosphere Strut (parts 1 & 2)", "Doin It All Night Long", "Jump Jump Jump", "Flying High (part 1)", "Patty Duke", "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By", "Atmosphere Strut (1979 rmx – part 2)", and "Happy Music" – and other tracks include "God's Greatest Gift To Man Is A Woman" by Marie Lomax, "My Baby's Got ESP (orig 7" mix)" by Four Below Zero, "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, "Dance Dance Dance (disco version)" by Maria Acuna, "God Save & Protect Children" by Margo Williams, "Ain't Gonna Be A Next Time (short version)" by Magnetic Touch, and "It's Rough (dub)" by The Imperial Three.

Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
Seminal Atlantic Records work from The Clovers – one of those groups who were already great on their own, but then really took off once they hit the label! There's a rawness to these sides that rivals the early Drifters at their best – the Clyde McPhatter years of that group – with vocal interplay that virtually invents the group harmony sound for years to come, mixed with raw rhythms that often feature lots of The Clovers' trademark guitar from Bill Harris! Easily one of the top 10 group soul albums of the 50s – with tracks that include "Love Love Love", "I Played The Fool", "Devil Or Angel", "Little Mama", "Crawlin", "Here Goes A Fool", "Lovey Dovey, "Yes It's You", "Ting A Ling", and "Hey Miss Fanny".

A great little album that's every bit as wonderful as you might expect from its cover – one of the key late 50s sides as a leader from bassist Curtis Counce – cut with a killer lineup that includes Harold Land on tenor sax, Rolf Ericson on trumpet, and Elmo Hope on piano! The set's got the mix of modernism and soul bop leanings you might expect from the players – a really fresh approach that comes off especially well in the non-iconic production style of the Dootone label – a mode that really let the players do their own thing, and break out from some of the tighter restrictions of other LA labels on the scene. Frank Butler completes the quintet on drums – and titles include "The Countdown", "Into The Orbit", "Race For Space", "Move", "Angel Eyes", and "So Nice". LP, Vinyl record album

Matt Dennis is best-known to most as the composer of the classic evergreen "Angel Eyes" – but he's also a pretty great singer and piano player, with an easy and hip style that's a lot like Bobby Troup. This album's one of the few he ever cut in this mode – and is a great small group session with backing from guitar, bass, and drums. Matt's the main star, though – and the set list is filled with great original compositions all handled beautifully. Titles include "Bless You Little Sleepyhead", "That's How Close I Want To Be To You", "Show Me The Way To Get Out Of This World", "Devil Talk", "Old Uncle Fud", "The Land Of Danger", and "Relax".

Matt's style here is nicely laidback – supper-club jazz, but with a nice hip twist – the kind of singer who could be playing a room with a gently swinging ease, but also scanning the crowd for the easy mark, the offhand glance, or the kind of sign that would make him change the nature of his set. Two tracks on the set have him joined by sweet-voiced Virginia Maxey – and titles include "Angel Eyes", "Compared To You", "Let's Get Away From It All", and "When You Love A Fella".

Bob DylanSlow Train Coming ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ ... $8.99
The first album in Dylan's so-called "Christian Period", but it's not really the uber-dramatic departure from the "old" Dylan that it was treated as at the time – gospel soul backing vocals and testifying lyricism for sure, but it sounds more like gospel has come to Dylan than it sounds like Dylan has "gone gospel". Slow Train Coming has a focused approach, ala Blood On The Tracks, even if this train doesn't come close to crossing over onto those particular tracks – and the return to a leaner, more focused vibe is welcome one. It's got stellar studio players in the mix, and producer Jerry Wexler's production touches on a soul sound, but smartly hews to Dylan's vocal style and lyrical focus. Dylan's high bar for a masterpiece given his trailblazing past didn't give this record or the following couple much a chance to succeed on their own merits back in the day, but all these years later...wow, this is really good, passionate stuff. Includes "Gotta Serve Somebody", "Precious Angel", "I Believe In You", "Slow Trait", "Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking", "Do Right To Me Baby (Do Unto Others)", "When You Gonna Wake Up", "Man Gave Name To All The Animals", "When He Returns".

The album begins with a rock-solid punch, then continues strongly throughout – basslines, guitar riffs, and funky drums all right on the money – used in a way that's somehow fresher than most of the larger funk groups of the time – and with a nice balance between mellower moments that still seem to have a gentle kind of groove. The energy is wonderful throughout – and titles include "Give It Up For Love", "Love In The Fast Lane", "Revenge", "Here I Am", "A Man In Love", and "You're My Angel". CD features bonus tracks – the previously unreleased "Mustang Movin On", plus single versions of "Here I Am" and "Love In The Fast Lane". CD

The Dilla tribute is billed as A Suite For Ma Dukes (Dilla's moms is rightly proud of Mr Yancey and deserves to be honored for his work) features Miguel Atwood-Ferguson fronting a 60-piece orchestra – if that doesn't speak volumes for Dilla's legacy, what could? It's wonderful stuff, bringing soaring, orchestral movements to instantly identifiable inspiration from Dilla's classic productions.

What makes this set so wonderful is the cohesive flow of it. It's solo folk country material recorded in a trio of intimate sessions from February of '76, November of that same year, and September of '78. Plaintive in presentation, with a passion that both soars to the heavens and plunges the depths. Bruised and totally beautiful!

Friend SoundJoyride ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good ... $29.99
A wild batch of instrumental psychedelia – with plenty of touches of the avant garde thrown in! This is the sort of record that always restores our faith in major labels – and it makes us realize that no matter how many Elvis Presley albums RCA was selling in the 60s, there was also room to put out odd little record like this one. The enigmatic Friend Sound are kind of a loose collective of hippie jazz musicians – playing flute, organ, guitars, percussion, piano, recorder, shovel (shovel?), finger cymbals, and just about anything else that seemed to be handy – and they had a style that was kind of like free-jamming jam band stuff, but with out the skill of most jam bands. Ok, it sounds like we're talking ourselves into a corner – but the record's pretty darn compelling. It's kind of like the band and the engineers took a bucketful of drugs – so many that they got really mellow and dark – then went into the studio to cut a tripped-out album of instrumentals. The whole thing comes across with the same "anything goes" spirit of the NY 60s underground film scene – but with none of the silliness of bands like The Fugs – and it's that kind of energy that makes us love this one, and be proud that we're just giving it a space to exist. Titles include "Childhood's End", "Lost Angel Proper St", and "The Empire Of Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Fuller will always be best-remembered as the man who composed some of Dizzy Gillespie's best known tunes from the bop era – like "Manteca", "One Bass Hit", and "Things To Come" – but on this album from 1965, he's reunited with Dizzy for a large group set of tracks that feature Diz as the main soloist – at a level that really shows the growth of both men at the time! Fuller's charts are large and full, but with a sense of space that's really amazing – almost like some of the soundtrack work Dizzy had done for The Cool World – with a mix of soulful and modern moments that's really wonderful. The group's kind of a mix of hip LA players – with Phil Moore Jr on piano, Dennis Budimir on guitar, and Jimmy Bond on bass – plus a larger set of horn players backing Dizzy up. Titles include a number of great originals – such as "Be's That Way", "Big Sur", "Things Are Here", "Man From Monterey", and "Angel City". CD

Overlooked genius from keyboardist Earl Grant – a player who could straddle so many styles at once, and who had a sly but subtle influence on jazz, soul, and instrumental pop in the 60s! This album's got all the echoes of Grant's style at its best – slight touches of exotica, a mix of piano and organ on the solos, and modes that are sometimes mellow, sometimes late nite jazzy, and occasionally punctuated with a stepping sort of groove that often got Grant play in sources far from the mainstream. Piano is recorded with a nice echo, while the organ is often more subdued – and titles include the original groover "Swingin Gently", plus "Make Someone Happy", "The Second Time Around", "Angel Eyes", "Beyond The Reef", "Mood Indigo", and "Tender Is The Night".

The core mode of the music is crime jazz, but Hagen also adds in a lot of dramatic flourishes and contemplative passages – and the show's exotic locales (Mexico, Japan, Burma, Hong Kong) makes for some added musical touches that bring a groovy global aspect to the work. And given that Bill Cosby was a key member of the show, you can bet that things sound pretty darn hip!

Hall's always had a rhythmic approach to his work, but here, playing with drummer Terry Clarke and bassist Don Thompson, he really opens into a great groove – stretching things past his usual standard, and bringing a lot more soul into the set than you might expect. The tunes are ones you'll recognize – "Angel Eyes", "Round Midnight", and "The Way You Look Tonight" – but the real charm is what Hall and the trio do with them! LP, Vinyl record album

The album's surprisingly open for the time – not in the slicker mode that Columbia was hitting as they crossed over some of their 70s fusion players, but in spacious territory that has Hino blowing cornet, in larger arrangements from keyboardist Masabumi Kikuchi and Gil Evans – the latter of whom seems to contribute a strong sense of color and tone to the album! The lineup is great, too – and features both Herbie Hancock and Kenny Kirkland on keyboards, Steve Grossman on reeds, Harvey Mason and Lenny White on drums, Anthony Jackson on bass, and Airto on percussion. Titles include the funky "Yellow Jacket", plus the cuts "Miwa Yama", "Cherry Hill Angel", and "Aboriginal". LP, Vinyl record album

Jutta HippJutta Hipp At The Hickory House – Vol 2 ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the few American albums by Jutta Hipp – a key figure in the German jazz scene of the postwar years, recording here at the Hickory House in New York! The album's a trio date, but it's got more than enough modern energy to warrant inclusion in the Blue Note 1500 series of the 50s – thanks in part to Hipp's forceful, angular approach to the keys of the piano – and also to some great accompaniment from Peter Ind on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! As usual, Thigpen takes things past any expectations you might have for the trio format – with a great lively touch on the drum kit that keeps the whole proceedings moving nicely. Tracks on this second volume include "After Hours", "Horacio", "Star Eyes", "The Squirrel", and "I Married An Angel". CD
(Part of the "Blue Note 80 – The 80 Works" series! Ultimate HQ CD pressing.)

HotHot ... LP
Big Tree, 1977. Very Good ... $0.99
At first glance, Hot look just like any other disco trio of the late 70s – three ladies, two white, one black – but upon hearing the set, their music is something else indeed – thanks to warmer southern soul production from Clayton Ivey! The album was actually recorded in Muscle Shoals – not New York or Philly – and it's got a relatively laidback feel on some numbers, one that lets the girls' vocals bubble along nicely with the backings, which feature keyboards from Ivey, plus a bit of strings and horns at times. A few tracks pick up the pace a bit and head for the clubs – but still not in a way that's traditionally disco. Titles include the hit "Angel In Your Arms", plus "The Right Feeling At The Wrong Time", "You Brought The Woman Out Of Me", "Who's Gonna Love You", "Mama's Girl", "You Can Do It", "You're The Reason For All The Songs", and "Why Don't You Believe In Your Man".

Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Checker/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of his at times – and the tracks are often nice and long, with more than enough room to make you feel like Phil Chess gave these guys plenty of space in the studio to hang out, and find the right way to interact. As much as we love Chess albums with short songs and a soulful punch, we really appreciate it when they can break format and open up on a session like this – which really helps create a unique moment on record! Titles include "Goin Down Slow", "Long Distance Call", "Sweet Little Angel", "Ooh Baby & Wrecking My Love Life", and "Spoonful". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition colored vinyl!)

Bobby HutchersonMontara ... LP
Blue Note/Elemental (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About July 15, 2019
One of our favorite Bobby Hutcherson albums ever – and a magical session filled with electric Latin vibes! The album's quite a different one for Bobby at the time – as it has him working with some larger arrangements, in a soulful west coast groove that's almost got the feel of a hip 70s soundtrack. Bobby's vibes are nicely set up against Fender Rhodes on most tracks – and the group's got some added Latin percussion that really opens up the rhythms. The whole thing's totally wonderful – brimming over with sun and soul, the kind of magic record that will never be made again! Tracks include "Camel Rise", "Yuyo", "Montara", "La Malanga", "Little Angel", and "Love Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Milt JacksonSecond Nature – The Savoy Sessions ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
A great collection of Milt's excellent sides as a leader for Savoy, pulled together for a 70s release. Wonderful bop rendered here in a small agile group that features the vibist alongside the great Lucky Thompson on tenor, with Hank Jones, Wendell Marshall and Kenny Clarke in the rhythm section. These tracks were cut in the mid 50s, when Savoy was transitioning from the early bop 78's that were their stock in trade to making longer LP sessions giving the players a bit more room to stretch out. 16 numbers in all, including "Flamingo", "Can't Help Lovin' That Man", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Ellington Medley" "Now's The Time", "Soul In 3/4", "Minor Conception", "Fred's Mood", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Angel Face" and "Soulful".

Jack JonesWives & Lovers ... LP
Kapp, 1963. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Jack Jones at the pinnacle of his early fame! Wives & Lovers is a gem of a set – issued hot on the heels of Jones' famous recording of the Burt Bacharach title hit – and presented with some great arrangements from Marty Paich, Glenn Osser, Pete King, and Ralph Carmichael! The style's a great mix of light strings and jazz – often spare enough to let Jack's vocals dominate strongly, but always in a way that's beautifully poised, balanced, and never overly indulgent. There's a slight hint of iciness in Jack's voice, but it's only a thin one – a slight layer of manner that holds back the depth of emotion lurking right below the surface. Titles include the classic "Wives & Lovers", plus "Charade", "I Wish You Love", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Angel Eyes", "I'm Moody", "Summertime Promises", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", and "Nina Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and some staining along the bottom seam.)
