✨✧ Jim HallIt's Nice To Be With You – Jim Hall In Berlin ... CD
MPS, 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful album from guitarist Jim Hall – different than some of his other work, and with a slightly harder edge! The unique session has him playing in an MPS 60s mode – more straight-on than some of his more airy moments – with a sound and tone that still recalls his work with Paul Desmond or Art Farmer, but a more direct approach, and an occasional groove as well! The trio's as unique as the record – the great Jimmy Woode on bass and drums from Daniel Humair – and titles include "Blue Joe", "Romaine", "Young One For Debra", "Body & Soul", and a great version of "Up Up & Away", which soars to the sky in a way you'd never expect from Jim!

✨✧ Johnny HodgesUsed To Be Duke (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Norgran/Verve, 1954. Used ... Just Sold Out!
OK, so the title's a bit misleading – as Hodges never used to be "Duke", just played with him – but the record's a great one – really sharp set of standards from the mid 50s, played with a tightly moving focus! The small group settings includes Ellingtonians, plus the unlikely addition of John Coltrane on tenor on a few tracks. Hodges' tone is tremendous, as always – and the record sparkles on both the more uptempo and the more measured numbers, with titles that include the Hodges originals "Used to be Duke" and "Sweet As Bear Meat", Ellington's "Warm Valley", plus "Madam Butterfly", and "Sweet Lorraine", "Time On My Hand"s", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" and "Poor Butterfly".

Neil InnesHow Sweet To Be An Idiot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Grapefruit (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
An unusual solo album from Neil Innes – a set recorded in the space between his time in Bonzo Dog Band and The Rutles! As with both of those groups, Innes shows an amazing talent for recording a song that sounds straight, but which has a really offbeat vibe – sometimes song-style parodies that have all the chops of an original – other times more goofy material that really shows why Innes would end up being such a great comedic partner with Eric Idle! The instrumentation on the set is great – thanks in part to the lead guitar and organ lines of Ollie Halsall – and titles include "Momma Bee", "Immortal Invisible", "Topless A Go Go", "Feel No Shame", "Singing A Song Is Easy", and "How Sweet To Be An Idiot". CD version adds in 10 more bonus singles – including "Recycled Vinyl Blues", "The Age Of Desperation", "Oyster", "What Noise Annoys A Noisy Oyster", and "Lie Down & Be Counted". CD

LightmenFree As You Wanna Be (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Judnell/Now Again, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $6.99 15.98
A record that definitely lives up to its title – as it's a lot freer and more spiritual than later work from drummer Bubbha Thomas and his Lightmen group! This set perfectly captures the unique vibe that the ensemble brought to the Houston scene at the start of the 70s – really the same sort of new jazz freedom explored by artists like Horace Tapscott in LA, or the AACM in Chicago – performed by a generation of musicians who might have been more straight ahead a few years before – but who really take off here in the new energy of the post-Coltrane years! Most numbers are still pretty rhythmic, and have a unified core – but some of the performances are even more outside than you'd know from later Lightmen records – showing a strong avant jazz pedigree for the members of the group. The lineup here features a very young Ronnie Laws on alto, soprano sax, and flute – sounding quite different than his jazz fusion work of the late 70s – and in addition to Thomas on drums, other players include Doug Harris on tenor, Carl Adams on trumpet, Kenny Abair on guitar, and Joe Singleton on trombone. Titles include "Creative Music", "Free As You Wanna Be", "May 67", "Luke 23:32-49", "#109 Psychosomatic", and "Talk Visit". Plus, this 2CD version features unreleased extended mono mixes – and a great booklet of notes! CD

Cheryl LynnIt's Gonna Be Right (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... $11.99
Cheryl Lynn's punching up her sound a bit here – working with Hubert Eaves, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and even some of her own productions – in a style that's got a heavier sort of 80s groove than earlier albums, but still mighty nice – and a great change from the disco of her earlier years! Lynn's vocals, as always, are totally top-shelf – more than bold enough to soar over whatever groove she'd choose – although in this case, the groove is right on the money – definitely as right as the title implies! Titles include "Fade to Black", "Find Somebody New", "Let Me Love You", and "Love's Been Here Before". CD features the bonus track "Fidelity (12" version)". CD

Kellee PattersonTurn On The Lights – Be Happy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Shadybrook/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $24.99
Mighty nice work from Kellee Patterson – a singer who should have been huge, given her range of expression – but who's maybe even better as one of the underground soul stars of the 70s! The music here is really a cut above the commercial at the time – tunes that echo some of the uptempo modes of the clubs, but which are always trying for something different too – maybe like some of the hipper female vocal recordings on Philadelphia International, handled here by producer Gene Russell and arranger Larry Farrow. Patterson can soar high one minute, hit some earthy notes the next – and the set's full of original material that really helps her find her groove. Titles include the southern soul styled groove "If It Don't Fit Don't Force It", the slinky "Turn On The Lights", and the cuts "Moving In The Right Direction", "Heaven", "I'm Coming Home", "Let's Hold On To Love", and "Be Happy". CD features bonus tracks – "If It Don't Fit (single version)", and "Turn On The Lights (phase 1 & 2 – single version)". CD

Gil Scott-HeronRevolution Will Not Be Televised (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A set that wasn't initially conceived as a full album by Gil Scott-Heron – but one that's come to be an essential part of his catalog, thanks to the always-relevant title theme! The album's actually a classic collection of work from the early years of Gil Scott-Heron at the Flying Dutchman label – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever – a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great keyboard accompaniment from frequent partner Brian Jackson on keyboards on nearly every track – plus help from Hubert Laws on flute and sax, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Nearly all the famous classics by Gil are here, and the titles include some of Gil's best jazz funk groovers, including "Pieces Of A Man", "Lady Day & John Coltrane", "Home Is Where The Hatred Is", "Save The Children", "Sex Education Ghetto Style", "Whitey On The Moon", "Did You Hear What They Said", The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", and "No Knock". Plus, this CD edition adds in 9 more bonus tracks – including "Free Fall", "I Think I'll Call It Morning", "When You Are Who You Are", "Who'll Pay For Reparations On My Soul", "Speed Kills", "Paint It Black", "The Middle Of Your Day", "Free Will", "Or Down You Fall", and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (first version)".

✨✧ New MastersoundsBe Yourself (with bonus download) ... LP
King Underground, 2003. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A warm return to funky form for the New Mastersounds – working here in an instant-classic groove that recalls the glory days of the Memphis scene! The group's instrumental sound is supported by some extremely burning work on Hammond – sweet and soulful licks that remind us a lot of the sound of Booker T in the late 60s, backed up by some guitar work that shifts easily from uptight and scratchy, to superdope and mellow. The album changes things up nicely from track to track, going for grooves that blend in a lot of different modes, and which show the group to be really expanding their format. Titles include "Better Off Dead", "Six Underground", "Barca", "You've Had It All", "This Ain't Work", "Idle Time", "Your Love Is Mine", "RTA", "Coming Down", and "Be Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Be Bop DeluxeAxe Victim (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harvest/Eclectic (UK), 1974. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The amazing debut of Be Bop Deluxe – a record that's made up of all sorts of familiar parts, yet somehow really manages to set itself apart as a whole! The young Bill Nelson is at the top of his game here – a hell of a guitarist, which we sometimes forget in his later work – and a vocalist with a sinister edge that gives the record a sense of darkness that matches the compressed production and overall moody vibe – a child of the Bowie/Bolan generation, but one that's a real black sheep of the family too! The strength of the record is impossible to sum up in easy words – but it's there for the hearing, right from the very first note – on titles that include "Jet Silver & The Dolls Of Venus", "Axe Victim", "Love Is Swift Arrows", "No Trains To Heaven", "Jets At Dawn", "Rocket Cathedrals", and "Third Floor Heaven". Great 2CD version features detailed notes from Bill Nelson – plus bonus tracks that include the original indie single "Teenage Archangel" and "Jets At Dawn" – plus the cuts "No Trains To Heaven (first mix)", "Axe Victim (first album version mix)", "Axe Victim (first version)", "Rocket Cathedrals (first version)", and "Night Creature (spoken word version)" – plus a remaster of the original stereo mix, and a new 2020 stereo mix too!

Ian Dury & The BlockheadsHit Me With Your Rhythm Stick (disco version)/Reasons To Be Cheerful (part 3) ... 12-inch
Stiff, 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
2 brilliant numbers from the post-punk/post-disco years – with a sound that presages a lot more work to come in the 80s! Both of the tracks have a nice parody of dancefloor rhythms of the time – and almost a Ze Records-like approach that features some great deadpan lyrics! "Reasons To Be Cheerful" is especially great – almost deadpan in the lyrics, and hardly "cheerful" – but pretty great in the way it elaborates its themes! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Stax/Craft, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7 LPs ... Out Of Stock
Legendary sounds from the Staple Singers – a set of albums for Stax Records that really helped push the group from the gospel folk underground into the soul music mainstream – and which also helped transform the rest of the scene in the process! The Staple Singers had recorded previously for Vee Jay, Epic, and other labels – but when the group hit Stax, at a time when the label was newly set free in the late 60s, the mix of forces really turned out to create something special – message-oriented soul music that drew on the strength of the group's gospel experience, but delivered themes that were every bit as righteous from a secular perspective too – all set to music from the great studio forces who were making Stax so wonderful at the time! This set features six full albums, all from the original tapes – Soul Folk In Action, We'll Get Over, Staple Swingers, Be Altitude Respect Yourself, Be What You Are, and City In The Sky – plus a special Singles Live & More album of bonus tracks! Bonus tracks include "Stay With Us", "Brand New Day", "Walking In Water Over Your Head", "I Got To Be Myself", "Oh La De Da", and "Trippin On Your Love" – plus Live At Wattstax recordings of "I'll Take You There", "Respect Yourself", "Heavy Makes You Happy", "Are You Sure", and "I Like The Things About Me".

Modern Jazz Group FreibergEuropean Jazz Sounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Christophorus/Be! (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful collection of work from this overlooked modern jazz combo from the 50s German scene – a group whose material was originally issued on a handful of 45rpm EP titles by a Christian music company – finally brought together in this excellent full length collection! The Modern Jazz Group Freiberg have a style that echoes the other European Jazz Sounds releases of the time by Joki Freund and Michael Naura – a groove that draws strongly from the best American modern impulses of the time – with both a west coast style of arranging, and a bit more New York fire on the way that the soloists come across! The group here has a strong trumpeter in the lead – Raymond Court – who clearly loves Clifford Brown, but also has his own sort of vibe, too – working here with Ewald Heidepriem on piano, Karl Theodore Geier on bass, and Eberhard Stengel on drums. Titles include "Remember Clifford", "Blues Pour Alice", "Solar", "My Old Flame", "A Night At Tony's", "St Joseph's Blue Concept", and "Jubilation". CD features 7 more bonus tracks – with work from tenorists Barney Wilen, Francis Netz, Bruno Spoerri, and Gustl Mayer! CD

✨✧ Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... LP
Enja/Be! (Germany), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary German session from the 60s – and a record that really showcases the unusual criss-crossing of modes that was going on in the European scene at the time! There's a very strong MPS vibe here – as trumpeter Dusko Goykovich leads a swinging sextet that includes Nathan Davis on flute, soprano, and tenor – blowing some tremendously soulful reed lines – plus incredible rhythms from Mal Waldron on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Cees See on drums. The record's an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective – but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could – damn soulful, and with a great exotic vibe. Davis is especially great, and plays in a soaring modal vein that's similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in America in the early 70s. The album's a beautiful session that often get's overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalog – but it's really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that's waiting to be rediscovered by the Dusty Groove crowd. Titles include "Macedonia", "Old Fisherman's Daughter", "Jumbo Uganda", "Bem Basha", "Saga Se karame", and "The Nights Of Skopje". LP, Vinyl record album

JR BaileyJust Me & You ... LP
MAM/Be With (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A really sublime rare groover from JR Bailey – vocalist in the Cadillacs back in their doo wop years, but a heck of a great 70s mellow soul artist in this obscure little set! JR wrote and co-produced all the tunes on the set – in a mode that steps along beautifully with a subtle groove at the bottom, but takes off with complicated touches in the backings, and some vocals from Bailey that really stand out from most of his contemporaries. There's echoes here of other 70s great like Donny Hathaway, Leroy Hutson, or Al Johnson – and like all those artists, JR's drawing a fair bit of jazz into his work – making for complicated changes and warmer overtones that really help take the record way past conventional soul. Arrangements are by Bailey with Bert De Coteaux, Ken Williams, Paull Griffin, and Horace Ott – and titles include "Love Love Love", "Cute As A Button", "After Hours", "Heaven On Earth", "She Called Me", "Everything I Want I See In You", and "Not Too Long Ago".

A very unusual sound library album from the German scene – a set that's maybe a lot more ethnographic than the usual stock TV and commercial grooves you'd expect – done by Victor Cavini with a fairly sensitive blend of traditional Japanese instrumentation and a few key modern elements as well! Instrumentation includes koto, wood flute, and lots of percussion – mostly acoustic, and in these little short tunes that do a great job of painting a little scene in sound – served up as a total of 14 "Pictures Of Japan", originally recorded for the Selected Sound library label.

Linda Babe MajikaDon't Treat Me So Bad ... LP
Gallo/Be With (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Groovy South African soul from Linda Bab Majika – a singer who's part of that new generation of positivity that was flowing out of the scene, reaching out here with a sound that's pretty universal in appeal! The music is more conventional 80s soul than you might expect – and richer and fuller than some of the synth-heavy work of the period in South African soul – still with lots of beats and keyboards, but a bolder production sound that really suits Linda's vocals! There are occasional elements that you might recognize from bigger crossover world acts – such as the South African artists who were getting play on US radio – but the overall sound is more soul than anything else, on titles that include "Let's Make A Deal", "It's Our Home", "Don't Treat Me So Bad", "Play Boy", and "Kunzima".

A sweet little record from Caiphus Semenya – a South African singer, but one who works here with backings from some top-shelf studio talents in LA – a mix of jazz and fusion players who really bring a great sense of groove to the material! Tracks include two originals co-written with Letta Mbulu – and the mix of South African roots and Cali soul is a bit similar to some of Letta's late 70s work – maybe a bit more upbeat than the political climate in SA warranted at the time, but that sometimes happens when an overseas artist spends a bit of time on the west coast. Titles include "Gumba Boogie", "Play With Fire", "Umoya", "Angelina", "Without You", and "Ziph'Inkomo". LP, Vinyl record album

South African soul from Caiphus Semenya – and a set that's got a nicely righteous, upbeat vibe throughout! Caiphus works here in that best sort of South African style in the decade when the nation's struggles were getting a lot more global attention – showing a spirit that refuses to be dimmed, as Semenya's often backed by a group of female singers that includes Letta Mbulu, who worked on the record with Caiphus! There's a bubbling, uplifting sound here that's great – very pure, and not of the more watered-down style of others who would soon borrow from the scene – on titles that include "Matswale", "Nomalanga", "Aida", "Mamase", "Moshanyana", and "Ndi Kulindile".

Manuel Alejandro is the maestro of the set – writer, arranger, and director – and Sola really fits his groove – on titles that include "Soy Rebelde", "Un Muneco De Madera", "Oye Mama Oye Papa", "En Ellos Creo", "Tabu Tabu", "Unete A Mi", "Bada Bada Ba", and "La Ultima Palabra".

Very groovy work from these two Brit sound library greats – loads of funky tunes, and great keyboards too – all served up in a massively funky record that was never issued to the public at large! Had this set hit the real record racks in 1974, it might well have challenged some of the greatest material from George Duke or Herbie Hancock – as the tunes are mostly funky, and feature lots of wonderful work on a wide variety of keyboards – sometimes getting all cool and wigged-out, even when the grooves are upbeat – a bit like Herbie in his Sextant years!

A funky tribute to all the "Super Groupies" who were helping out the 70s music scene – maybe the closest thing that Junie Morrison every came to a tribute album – and a set that's got all the same wonderful complexity of his other solo albums on Westbound! As with those records, there's a pre-Prince approach to funk that draws heavily from Ohio Players and P-Funk elements – but which really gets a sharper, more sinister focus with Junie in the lead – at a level of soulful stardom that could have made him another Bootsy Collins, if folks were ever smart enough to figure out what he was doing at the time! Titles include the funky classic "Suzie Thundertussy" – plus "Super Groupie", "Surrender", "Junie III", "What Am I Gonna Do", "Stone Face Joe", "Suzie", and "If You Love Him". LP, Vinyl record album

A new entry in the legendary KPM sound library series, but one that feels very much like some of the best keyboard sessions the label was recording when it moved into its more electric mode at the start of the 80s! Steve Moore does a great job of making things moody while still moving forward – lots of darker washes of sound hiding behind the melodic moments upfront – as the tunes often have this bubbling, trickling quality that makes us feel like the music is creating itself as the session progresses in the studio! The approach makes for a nicely organic variation on this sort of music – definitely the sensitivity of an analog performance – and titles include "Behind The Waterfall", "Mirror Mountain", "Syzygy", "Pentagram Of Venus", "Urge Surfing", and "Of Dust Thou Art".

Nick Ingman's known to some for his groovy guitar instrumentals of the 60s – but here, he's at the top of the sound library game – serving up bigger group instrumentals in two different styles! Side one features "distinctive themes" – and has Ingman working a big band through modes that start with a romping Basie soulful style, then move into more electrified 70s modes – a bit soundtracky, but with some nice touches! Side two features "race to achievement" – a series of short tracks that work very well as TV show themes – some offered in two versions, and all of them nice and brief, but with plenty of action in the mix! Titles include "Ooops", "Against The Odds", "Land Of Opportunity", "It's Easy", "Expanding Markets", "Made It", "Speedway", "Under Pressure", and "Light Preparation". LP, Vinyl record album

Coloursound Library/Be With (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Percussive underscores, but for the now generation – specifically the one that wants a bit more electronics in their percussion – as most of the set seems to focus more on electric drum styles than the acoustic instruments on the cover! That's hardly a problem, though – as the set's a great one from the time when sound library styles were getting a lot more lean – and the instrumentals here would fit nicely amidst an early 80s dancefloor, especially one that was borrowing some of the funky currents from global regions, and moving them into a more mainstream clubby vibe – ala 99 Records or Ze. There's still a bit of acoustic percussion too – although that might be sampled as well – and titles include "African Nightclub", "The Now Generation", "Panama", "Inorganic Matter", "Mechanical Heart", and "Nepal Trek".

Ben's not the only singer on the record, but his presence here can definitely be felt – deepening up the grooves nicely, and giving the already-great AWB sound an even more badass feel! Titles include the classic "Star In The Ghetto", a funky remake of "What Is Soul", an earlier hit for King – plus "Keepin It To Myself", "Imagine", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Get It Up For Love", and "The Message". CD features bonus tracks – original single versions of "Star In The Ghetto" and "Get It Up For Love". CD

Kenny BarronScratch (with bonus track) ... CD
Enja/Solid (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99 About May 26, 2021
A slightly more aggressive trio session than usual for Kenny Barron – still done with that round, warm tone on the keys that we love so much – but hitting the tracks with a stronger punch that's a bit unusual, and which might be the result of using Dave Holland and Daniel Humair as part of the trio! All but one of the tunes on the set are original numbers, and there's a mix of Monkish and modern modes sitting next to some more traditional Barron approaches to the piano. Kenny really takes off at some points – playing fast, free, and with incredible intensity – and titles include "Scratch", "Water Lily", "Quiet Times", "The Third Eye", "And Then Again", and "Song For Abdullah". Includes the bonus track "Jacob's Ladder". CD
This title is scheduled for release about Wednesday, May 26.

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Gary BartzGary Bartz – Jazz Is Dead 6 ... CD
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Saxophonist Gary Bartz joins the duo of Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad – bringing a warm sense of soul to their soulful backings – which range from funky to spacey, and do a nice job of capturing the mid 70s feel of Gary on record! The sound isn't the Larry Mizell or Ntu Group version of Bartz – but a warm, spiritual take on alto sax – with strong solo that really soar out over the proceedings, even when the Young/Muhammad rhythms might not be as dynamic – but that's maybe no surprise, given that Gary Bartz always made the best of any situation – and really shines here amidst the Fender Rhodes, Hammond, guitars, and vibes that make up the rest of the music. Titles include "Soulsea", "The Message", "Day By Day", "Blue Jungles", "Spiritual Ideation", and "Black & Brown". CD

Beach BoysPet Sounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. Used ... $4.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Also features bonus tracks "Unreleased Backgrounds", "Hang On To Your Ego", and "Trombone Dixie". CD

BeckHyperspace (deluxe edition – with holographic jacket & booklet) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Capitol, 2019. New Copy ... On June 12, 2021
Beck in a largely easygoing, electronic psych pop mode on Hyperspace! A lot of it is produced by Pharrell, whose approach to sparely keyed, yet thick-sounding electronics over prominent beds of beats has long made him one of the more recognizable pop producers out there – and his longevity in his niche is nearly as impressive as Beck's – but Beck's own distinctive stylistic wanderings keep this from ever getting too predictable from track to track. The single "Saw Lightning" actually sounds more like Mellow Gold era Beck than most things he's recorded since, making that track a pretty wild standout here – and other tracks include "Hyperlife", "Uneven Days", "Die Waiting", "Chemical", "See Through", "Hyperspace", "Dark Places", "Star" and "Everlasting Nothing".

This is one of greatest albums by Big Brother & The The Holding Company – and it's also one of the most important in cementing the legacy of singer Janis Joplin. The raw manic energy of the group at their live best is somehow bottled and presented on record as perfectly as ever could be – and even better are the delicate moments that show such an incredible depth!

Mary J BligeMy Life (2CD edition – with bonus tracks0 ... CD
Uptown/Universal, 1994. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
The stunning second album from Mary J Blige – a record that showed that both the singer and her new form of soul music were around to stay! Production is from Sean Combs and Chucky Thompson – very heavy on beats borrowed from the underground, but nicely tuned to the mainstream – all with a streetwise vibe that immediately made the lady such a nice contrast to some of the more cloying commercial R&B from a few years before. And if you think the approach is all attitude and hype, guess again – because Blige almost reintroduces deep soul to the charts with the classic "I'm Going Down" – alongside other classics that include "You Bring Me Joy", "Be Happy", "My Life", "Mary's Joint", "Don't Go", "I Love You", "No One Else", "I Never Wanna Live Without You", "I'm The Only Woman", and "Mary Jane". 25th Anniversary edition – with bonus CD that features the extra cuts "Mary Jane (rmx with LL Cool J)", "I'm Goin Down (rmx with Mr Cheeks)", "I Love You (rmx with Smif N Wessun)", "Be Happy (Bad Boy butter rmx)", "Be Happy (Ron G rmx)", and "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman".

The keyboards are very nicely placed in the set – never too strong, and with some jazzy flourishes that help deepen the feel of the set, and maintain a warm stepping midtempo groove. Tracks include "Flying High", "Feelgood", "Where Are You Now", "Funky Nights", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Shadows Of The Night", and "Who Will Be The One".

Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
Dracula never sounded so funky – thanks to the mighty sounds of the Whit Boyd Combo! Boyd was a porn peddler in 60s Texas, but also cut a few great soundtracks for his smutty films – including this wonderful romp that's full of funky drums, heavy organ, off-tuned guitar, and even a bit of tenor from time to time – all with a vibe that's a bit like a Prestige Records combo being let loose to score some b-grade film for the grindhouse scene! Some tracks are short, others are nice and long – and the music is nicely rough around the edges, with occasional production touches to make things sound spooky – but a nicely strong soul jazz vibe at the core. Titles include "Chase Music For Girl In A Cave", "Music Number Five", "Dracula The Dirty Old Man Theme", "Fast Music Trailer", and "Peppy Music For A Dating Scene". CD features four more tracks "Music Number Four", "Three Minutes Of Love Music", "Six Minutes Of Music To Make Love By", and "Dracula's Close Up". CD

Bobbi Boyle & The TrioDay In The Life (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Encino/Muzak (Japan), 1967. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
A really charming little set from vocalist Bobbi Boyle – a singer in Encino during the late 60s, working here with a great mix of jazz, bossa, and all things groovy! The album's almost a Sunshine Pop take on jazz vocals – one that has Bobbi singing with a sweet small combo, and vocalizing in these lightly skipping lines that are really beautiful – a bit like Lynn Marino on her famous album with Frank Cunimundo – a set that would be a very good comparison to this album too! But at another level, there's echoes here of some of the hipper European vocalists of the 60s – like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – although Boyle's sound is definitely one that was born and bred in the good ol' US of A. Many of the tunes are familiar 60s numbers, but they're handled by Bobbi and the group with a really personal feel – one that brings gently grooving rhythms into play through most of the set, making for a really fresh approach to the music. Titles include "How Insensitive", "This Gal's In Love With You", "A Day In The Life", "It's Always 4 AM", "Love So Fine", "Lazy Day", "If You Go Away", and "Up Up & Away". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Sad Old World" and "Everybody's Talkin". CD

Jaw-dropping work from Charles Bradley – a stunning album that's maybe his best so far – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the quality of his previous work! There's a focus and power here that really puts Charles on top – from the bold statement at the start of the record, to the range of expressive, emotive lyrics all the way through – given superb support in a range of deep soul and funky currents from the likes of Budos Band, Menehan Street Band, Gospel Queens, Saun & Starr, and Sha La Das! Yet none of these guests ever feel like they're sharing the spotlight with Charles – because, like the James Brown Show of the late 60s, all these super-strong talents are working in constellation around Bradley's majesty – a bold soul vision that's never burned this brightly before. Titles include "Ain't It A Sin", "Nobody But You", "Good To Be Back Home", "Things We Do For Love", "Crazy Love", and "Slow Love" – plus a cover of Black Sabbath's "Changes". LP, Vinyl record album

No heavy metal here – just tight and funky jamming from the mighty Brecker Brothers! There's a bit more guitar here than on some of their other records – hence, possibly, the title – but the whole thing's still very much in that mix of soulful fusion and jazzy soloing that the pair forged strongly in the mid 70s. Keyboards and guitar jam strongly, but Randy and Michael still get in plenty of space for their solos – pushing their jazz licks with the jamming intensity that might normally be relegated to guitar heroes in the rock world. Tracks include "Inside Out", "Some Skunk Funk", "Sponge", "East River", "Funky Sea Funky Dew", and "Squids". CD

Where Coming Home was maybe Leon's answer to the generation of Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke, Good Thing is more of a nod to the era of Maxwell and D'Angelo – but, as before, coming across with a vibe that's completely Bridges' own – this ebullient, bubblingly soulful quality that's completely sublime – and which has Leon's voice fitting perfectly with the mellow grooving beats, keyboards, and guitar. The singer's voice is maybe even better than before – sure to win over an even new wave of ears – and titles include "If It Feels Good Then It Must Be", "Bet Ain't Worth The Hand", "Bad Bad News", "Shy", "Beyond", "Forgive You", "Lions", "You Don't Know", and "Georgia To Texas".

Barbara BrownGot To Be Somebody – The XL Sessions – 60s Memphis Gold ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A great full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! Titles include "Can't Find No Happiness", "Plenty Of Room", "A Great Big Thing", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Man Around The House", "Play Thing", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "I Don't Want To Have To Wait", "It Hurts Me So Much", "Got To Be Somebody", "There's A Look On Your Face", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

Titles include "Sixth Hammer", "Dusterado", "Silver Stallion", "The Wrangler", "Gun Metal Grey", "Budonian Knight", "Mierda De Toro", and "Snake Hawk". LP, Vinyl record album

John Cage with David TudorVariations IV – Volume II ... LP
Everest, 1965. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A very cool album that presents Cage at the height of his "chance" composition stage, and which features him and David Tudor playing a mixed bag of sounds on a sound system, recorded live at the Feigen-Palmer Gallery in LA. The work is the kind of stuff you always hear about with Cage, but can't find that easily on record. The album's a haunting melange of random sounds – from radio noise, to gamelon recordings, to sound effects – and it's striking proof of how fresh these ideas still are, even if they've been reduced to drivel by countless "experimental" post-rock bands. This edition says "Volume II", which we assume to be a second part of the original issue – but we're not sure. LP, Vinyl record album

California PlayboysTrying To Become A Millionaire (with download) ... LP
Loadstone/Manufactured, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Stunning funky soul by California Playboys – a heck of a record that should have made the Playboys a huge combo at the time! It's a shame the group didn't become millionaires – but the obscurity of the record is maybe also one of its charms – the kind of small label set that never fully got its due at the time, but which is ripe for rediscovery all these many years later! The California Playboys were together for a number of years – forming as a backing band for singer Lester Young (not the sax player), doing session work for others, and otherwise developing their skills for years – all of which really comes through here in their sharp-edged instrumentation, which sounds even sharper in the 70s indie-level production for the album. The killer title tune sounds like it could (and should!) be the namesake tune of a funky mid 70s soundtrack – as it's really got a perfect cinematic soul vibe, ala Bobby Womack and Marvin Gaye – though in a tighter, smaller combo setting. Most tunes start with vocals and end with long instrumental riffing – and titles include"Double Love", "She's A Real Sweet Woman", "Just Say A Four Letter Word", "I've Got To Find Myself Another Girl", and "Turned On For Good".

A&M, 1969. Used ... $13.99
A landmark album from Joe Cocker – and a set that took blue-eyed soul in a whole new direction at the end of the 60s! The album's a surprising stunner all the way through – one that really gets past some of the overdone Cocker cliches that held on a bit too strongly in later years – served up here in relative simplicity, with core backing by Chris Stainton and The Grease Band, plus some key LA help from Leon Russell, and a bevy of backup singers that includes Merry Clayton, Bonnie Bramlett, Rita Coolidge, and Patrice Holloway. Russell co-produced the set, and his soulful touch definitely helps do a lot for Cocker's already-amazing vocals – adding in an undercurrent of funk that wasn't heard on Joe's first album. Titles include a classic remake of "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", plus "Delta Lady", "Something", "That's Your Business Now", "Hitchcock Railway", "Dear Landlord", "Darling Be Home Soon", and "Hello Little Friend".

Jessi Colter with Waylon JenningsCountry Star Is Born/Leather & Lace ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1970/1981. New Copy ... $13.99
The first-ever album from Jessi Colter – paired here with a famous duet set with husband Waylon Jennings! First up is A Country Star Is Born – the fantastic debut of Jessi Colter – done at a time when the lady had already hitched up with Waylon Jennings at a personal level, and was also sharing some of his nascent outlaw qualities in her music! In fact, we might make an argument that this album predates some of Jennings' bigger outlaw moments – and also has a similar sort of quality in the early years – with qualities in Colter's voice that are very different than the Nashville mainstream, almost as if she's equally aware of phrasing from female folk singers – set to a very hip batch of tunes from Colter herself (as Miriam Eddy), Harlan Howard, Willie Nelson, and Mickey Newbury. The set includes a duet with Waylon Jennings on "I Ain't The One" – and other titles include "It's Not Easy", "He Called Me Baby", "Too Many Rivers", "Cry Softly", and "If She's Where You Like Livin". Leather & Lace is the first full album of duets between Jessi Colter and Waylon Jennings – two romantic partners who'd been crossing paths on records a few times during the 70s, and finally got the chance to step out in an album of their own! The approach is a bit like some of the other RCA pairings of stars during the 70s, in that sometimes Waylon is mostly in the lead, sometimes Jessi – but you can definitely hear the sympathy that both feel for each other, and the album's most special moments really come when they share the lead together. Titles include "Pastels & Harmony", "You Never Can Tell", "Rainy Seasons", "I'll Be Alright", "You're Not My Same Sweet Baby", "Storms Never Last", and "What's Happened To Blue Eyes". CD

Yet on this stunning full length set, The Counts maybe do that famous group one better – pushing aside their vocals for some incredible instrumental interplay that comes from bumping Hammond lines, wickedly sharp drums, and non-stop riffing guitars – all of which take center stage, while the vocals only seem to be part of the mix to urge the instruments onward! Tracks are long and jamming – ala the early Westbound work from George Clinton – and although The Counts recorded before and after the space of this album, this set is definitely the group's masterpiece. Titles include "What's Up Front That Counts", "Rhythm Changes", "Thinking Single", "Why Not Start All Over Again", "Bills", and "Pack Of Lies".

Three full albums from Australian singer Creepy John Thomas – all of them pretty darn great! The set begins with a record issued under the name of Rust – a set recorded in Germany, by Australian singer John Thomas – all quickly put together in the studio, but with results that are surprisingly great! The group have a psychedelic look on the cover, but are more old school rockers with some late 60s twists – some Beatles-esque arrangements on a few tracks, freakier vocals on a few others, and this stunning ability to move between styles while still making the record feel very unified overall. The whole thing's wonderful – filled with catchy tunes and madder moments – titles that include "Delusion", "Come With Me", "Find A Hideaway", "The Endless Struggle", "Please Return", and "Should I". Next is the self-titled Creepy John Thomas album – a stunning set from Aussie singer John Thomas – billed here as Creepy John Thomas, a name that was supposed to invoke older blues roots while also pitching the whole thing to the weirder, wilder, wiggier generation at the end of the 60s! In truth, there's very little blues rock here at the forefront – maybe in part because the album's an early production effort by Conny Plank – who does a great job bringing out all these odd sounds from familiar elements – so that the fuzzy guitar and heavy bass can get weird and moody at times, even when the song structure might be relatively tight. The driving force, though, is Creepy John – the kind of singer who should have been part of some supergroup at the start of the 70s – but who's maybe even better as one of rock's great under-discovered lesser-rans. Titles include "Sun & Woman", "Bring Back The Love", "Ride A Rainbow", "You've Got To Hide", "Gut Runs Great Stone", "Do I Figure In Your Life", "Moon & Eyes Song", and "Trippin Like A Dog & Rockin Like A Bitch". Last up is Brother Bat Bone – a real gem from the overlooked Creepy John Thomas – a record that evokes familiar blues rock styles, but with a much trippier sound overall – as you might guess from the image on the cover! Creepy John plays acoustic and electric guitar – with qualities that are even stronger than his previous records, and which lead to the longs being longer, with some surprisingly great solo parts – which are then topped by those raw, nasty vocals that always made Thomas such a budding talent at the time! There's a complexity here that's really surprisingly – the guitar work alone is wonderful, and all the rest is really just icing on the cake – on titles that include "This Is My Body", "Standin In The Sunshine", "100lb Noomy", "What's The Matter With The Mill", and "Down In The Bottom".

Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Bluesy quartet material by Lockjaw, with his combo that featured Shirley Scott on organ and Arthur Edgehill on drums. The tracks are standards, but Davis plays them with a nice deep soulful sound, reaching deeply into his tenor, wrenching out hard-edged notes that drip with a deep rich emotion. Titles include "I'll Never Be The Same", "Old Devil Moon", "Too Close For Comfort", "Tangerine", and "But Not For Me". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used ... $4.99
One of the four essential quintet sides Miles Davis cut for Prestige in the mid 50s – all modern jazz classics by anyone's measure, along with Steamin', Relaxin' and Cookin'. These quintet sides established Davis and John Coltrane as a significant force to be reckoned with, and helped set the tone for much of the small group and post bop jazz cut in that era. Red Garland, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones lay a smooth swinging pulse for Miles and Trane to blow over on the set – and titles include "It Never Entered My Mind", "Four", "In Your Own Sweet Way", "The Theme (takes 1 & 2)", "Trane's Blues", "Ahmad's Blues" and "Half Nelson".

Bang/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
A really sweet little album from Paul Davis – issued on early 70s Bang Records, with a vibe that's maybe partly blue-eyed soul, partly singer/songwriter – all put together with a nicely understated vibe! Paul's got a voice that's much warmer than his image on the cover – and a sound that's never slick, and very down to earth – but also not trying to hard to fake any sort of soul that the singer might have himself. The whole thing makes for a beautifully balanced album – nicely subtle, and very much out of time – with titles that include "Johnny Poverty", "Broken Hearted & Free", "What Would We Do Without Music", "Love Don't Come Easy", "Simple Man", "Let Me Be The One", and "Come On Honey". CD features lots of bonus tracks – the previously unreleased "Burnin For You Baby", "You're Still New To Me", "Missing You", and "All Through The Night" – plus a "Paul Davis Radio Spot", and single versions of album tracks too!

Dazz BandWild & Free (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/PTG (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The Dazz Band may be wild and free in the title, but the album's tighter than ever – a lean, focused approach to the Dazz Band sound – done here with loads of 80s production and instrumentation in the mix! The rhythms are heavy with drum machine lines – often mixed with keyboard bits and swirled together with a sound that's even more crossover than some of the group's earlier work. Vocals often take a back seat to the grooves – but on the ballads they shine through nicely, and remind us of the group's roots. Titles include "The Beat That's Right", "Wild & Free", "Love MIA", "Sunglasses", "Something You Said", and "Time Will Heal A Broken Heart". CD features bonus tracks – "Wild & Free (ext dance rmx)", "Last Chance For Love", "Love MIA (house mix)", and "A Place In My Heart". CD

✨✧ Jackie De ShannonMe About You/Laurel Canyon/Put A Little Love In The Heart/To Be Free ... CD
Imperial/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
Four classic albums from Jackie DeShannon – all in a single set! First up is Me About You – sophisticated Jackie at her best – working with great arrangements from Jack Nitzsche and Nick DeCaro – both cats from the California scene we can really trust for "cut-above" pop work like this – music that goes way past the simple sounds of DeShannon's start – into cool adult territory that really makes the album great. Jackie's vocals are surprisingly soulful in the setting – even more so than before – and the tunes include lots of gems, including versions of Van Dyke Parks' "High Coin", John Sebastian's "Didn't Want To Have To Do It", and Tim Hardin's "Baby Close Its Eyes". Also includes "I Keep Wanting You", "Me About You", and "Nicole". Next is Laurel Canyon – heady work from Jackie DeShannon's later years in 60s pop – an album with themes and styles that go way beyond her earlier recordings – as you might guess from the hip Laurel Canyon reference in the title! Jackie's working here in a mode that's much more strongly in a singer-songwriter style than before – with arrangements and backings that are a lot more organic, and less pop-tuned than ever – almost in a Laura Nyro approach on some numbers. As usual, a good portion of the tracks were written by Jackie herself – including "Holly Would", "Come & Stay With Me", "LA", "Too Close", and "Laurel Canyon" – and the album also features a few well chosen tracks by other writers too, like "Bitter Honey" by Paul Williams & Roger Nichols, "I Got My Reason" by Barry White, and "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" by Smokey Robinson. Put A Little Love In Your Heart is quite possibly the last great hit from singer Jackie DeShannon – an album built around the righteous spirit of the title track – filled with really wonderful original tunes penned by Jackie and soul singer Jimmy Holiday! The album may well be the best to explore the space between pop and soul that often characterized Jackie's work – and the overall sound is somewhat similar to some of Dusty Springfield's best pop/soul work from the same stretch. 10 of the album's 12 tracks are originals by Holiday and DeShannon – all set to soaring orchestrations by James Langeford, which often have a pronounced influence from the sound of Atlantic Records in the late 60s! Titles include "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", "You Are The Real Thing", "River Of Love", "Movin", "You Can Come To Me", "You Have A Way With Me", and "I Let Go Completely". To Be Free is an interesting little record – with kind of a crossover California soul feel overall – recorded with Rene Hall arrangements that echo a few rootsy modes at times, mixed in with fuller orchestrations that step a bit back towards Jackie's earlier years on Imperial – a surprisingly nice blend, with a fresh sound for the 70s. The album features a number of great tracks co-written with Jimmy Holiday – a fellow Imperial talent – and titles include "Mediterranean Sky", "Sooner Or Later", "What Was Your Day Like", "Livin On The Easy Side", "Brighton Hill", and "When Morning Comes Again".

A wonderful pairing, and one that's really helped Raheem DeVaughn find a great new place in his music – a space that's still got all the sensual soul of previous records, but which has him collaborating with The Colleagues to give it a lot more focus and direction! There's a classic vibe taking place here – even amidst song topics that are very contemporary – and Raheem seems to rise up like a contemporary Marvin Gaye, with a sense of majesty and presence that he's never had before – and which shows that his pairing with The Colleagues production team is a mighty great thing. Titles include "Up & Down", "Lawd Help Me", "Marvin Used To Say", "Mr Midnight", "Motions", "Black Fist Cafe", "Twilight", "Special Occasion", and "Outer Limits". CD

One of the first recordings to ever feature Lefty Dizz in the lead – done at a time when the singer/guitarist was a young star on the Chicago scene, but getting some key exposure here, thanks to an overseas recordings! Lefty's as great as you might guess from his name – a strong personality, but never in a way that's as hokey or overstated as he might be in the hands of a big label production – just balanced with the right sort of Chicago roots energy, in a group that also features piano and a bit of vocals from Big Moose Walker, and some additional guitar from Willie James Lyons. Titles include "Blue Shadow", "RM Blues", "Take Out Some Insurance", "Things That I Used To Do", "All Right OK You Win", "One Eyed Woman", and "Lake Shore Drive Boogie".

Columbia, 1977. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
Genius, pure genius! It was hard for Earth, Wind & Fire to go wrong at this point – and the album's a stellar blend of jazz, funk, and soul, all done in that perfect style they'd hit by the mid 70s. And even though this one was a monster album, of the type that you see in everyone's record collection from the time, it's still got a freshness that we always forget about – and lots of nice twists and turns that show that the band hadn't lost their more sophisticated roots. Case in point is the wonderful "Brazilian Rhyme", a short little groover that you'll instantly recognize as a sample from the first Tribe Called Quest album. Other tracks include "Jupiter", "In The Marketplace", "Magic Mind", "Runnin", "Be Ever Wonderful", and "Serpentine Fire". Plus, the CD features bonus tracks "Would You Mind?", "Runnin (original Hollywood mix)", and "Brazilian Rhyme (live)". CD

Aware/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $24.99
The first album by John Edwards – a richly talented vocalist who would go onto become the lead singer of the Spinners in later years, singing on some of their last big hits. This album's a very different effort – and features John singing in a deep Southern Soul style, mixed with the smoother production of the Hotlanta scene. The real strength of the record, though, is the songs – as John sings a great set of tracks by writers like Sam Dees ("I'll Be Your Puppet", "Claim Jumpin", "Stop This Merry Go Round"), Jimmy Lewis ("Careful Man"), Floyd Smith ("You Were Made For Love", and Bobby & Linda Womack ("It's A Groove"). Nice stuff, and the production and arranging's as strong as the writing! CD features three bonus tracks – "Vanishing Love", "The Way We Are", and "Ain't That Good Enough". CD

Ethnic Heritage EnsembleBe Known Ancient/Future/Music (deluxe 2LP edition) ... LP
Spiritmuse, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $41.99 44.99
The first record in many years from the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble – done with a lineup that features a variation from the original group, but a sound that's very much in keeping with their mission! The Ensemble were always dedicated to preserving a spiritual jazz tradition at a time when the Chicago and global scenes were decidedly more free jazz-oriented – and from his emergence in the 80s onward, percussionist Kahil El'Zabar has continued to fan the flames with his own music, and with fantastic collaborations like this! The group's a quartet this time around – and has the tremendous Corey Wilkes on trumpet, really giving the sound a pointed edge – next to Kahil's work on a variety of percussion instruments, the baritone sax of Alex Harding, and the cello of Ian Maskin. Maskin's performance on the record is often similar to the way in which the violin of Billy Bang was used in El'Zabar's Ritual Trio – a fluid bridge between the percussion and the horn lines – and the set includes great reworkings of the classics "Little Sunflower" and "Freedom Jazz Dance" – plus originals "Ntozake", "Pharoah", "Blew It", "Black Is Back", and "Wish I Knew".

✨✧ John Fahey & Blind Joe DeathLegend Of Blind Joe Death (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Takoma, 1967. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
The seminal debut of the great John Fahey – posing here as Blind Joe Death – an acoustic guitarist whose bluesy undercurrents showcase Fahey's love of early recorded music! The style is pure Fahey throughout – those magical tones that cascade effortlessly off the heavily-plucked strings of his guitar – echoing older blues and folk modes, but never in a way that's stereotypical – and which is already woven through with the kind of sonorities that continued to make Fahey such an important artist over the years. Think of the set as a skewed version of American history – filtered through one mind and one set of hands – and you'll be well on the way to understanding the power of this music. The set features songs penned by Fahey, and redone versions of older numbers – and tracks include "West Coast Blues", "St. Louis Blues", "I'm A Poor Boy Far Away From Home", "John Hardy", "Transcendental Waterfall", "Desperate Man Blues", "Sun Gonna Shine In My Back Door", and "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues". Fahey originally recorded some of the material in 1959, then again in 1963 – and this double-length CD features all of the many tracks that appeared on various versions of the record – 21 titles and over 75 minutes of music!

Enja/Solid (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99 About May 26, 2021
Never-failing genius from Art Farmer – recording here in his later years, and working in that long and open-ended mode we love so much! There's few trumpeters who could make a record like this work – but Farmer's got a tremendous ability to stretch out on longer tunes with well-crafted solos that make beautiful use of soundspace and texture – letting his trumpet almost float along in the air and find its own notes, while the trio of Geoff Keezer piano, Kenny Davis bass, and Lewis Nash on drums provide just the right sort of accompaniment. The album's got a grace that matches any of Art's excellent mid 70s sides from Japan – and is proof that his talents never waned as the years went on – making him one of the few talents from his generation who continued to create and invent beautifully over time. Titles include "Soul Eyes", "Isfahan", "Will You Still Be Mine", "Sad To Say", "Time On My Hands", and "Recorda Me". CD

One of the most amazing albums ever from Frank Foster – a totally righteous set that's light years ahead of his earlier work with the Basie Band! The format here is right up there with the best on Strata East at the time – a large-group session that's filled with some of the hippest players of the early 70s – all coming together with a joyous, spiritual sense of power! Foster's in the lead on tenor and soprano sax, but other players include Cecil Bridgewater and Hannibal Marvin Peterson on trumpets, Harold Mabern on keyboards, Elvin Jones on drums, Dick Griffin on trombone, Stanley Clarke on bass, Airto on percussion, and even Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals! Tracks are all quite long and flowing – spiritual expressions of jazz that rival the greatness of anything recorded for Impulse – and titles include "The Loud Minority", "Requiem For Dusty", "JP's Thing", and "EW – Beautiful People".

Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A really strange little sci-fi soundtrack – penned for a film that was billed as one of the first "adult" science fiction movies – even though it was relatively tame compared with bigger budget porn to come! The low-fi masterpiece was directed by David F Friedman – not to be confused with the jazz musician of a similar name – and the songs here are credited to William Allen Castleman, although the notes don't really feature any other credits at all! Some of the sounds are what you'd expect from both genres of the time – combined – the jazzy romping of sexploitation film, mixed with electronic elements all around the edges that situate things in space – although maybe in modes that aren't as perfectly conceived as Italian scores of the period. Still, the whole thing's pretty darn great – and titles include "Hammond Orgasm", "Had It Comin", "Staccato Swagger", "Back To Bass", and "Infinite Worlds". LP, Vinyl record album

Mike Gibbs with John ScofieldMike Gibbs Band At Symphony Hall – Birmingham 1991 ... CD
Dusk Fire (UK), 1991. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A really unusual meeting of the minds – as legendary guitarist John Scofield works here with the famous British big band of Mike Gibbs – an ensemble that had been making waves for decades by the time of this recording! Gibbs was always one of the most colorful of the modern British talents at the end of the 60s – a trombonist, composer, and arranger who was always strongly aware of tone – especially the unusual moments that could arise when putting key talents together in his always-modern ensemble! The lineup here lives up to that legacy – as it also features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Tony Coe on tenor, John Taylor on piano, Chris Pyne on trombone, and Steve Swallow on bass – all players whose early work helped transform the UK scene, and who still sound great at the start of the 90s. The album's a double-length set – and titles include "Meant To Be", "Lost In Space", "Pretty Out", "Blueprint", "Science & Religion", "Fat Lip", "World Without", "Out Of The Question", and "Don't Overdo It".

Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99 About May 12, 2021
A legendary German session from the 60s – and a record that really showcases the unusual criss-crossing of modes that was going on in the European scene at the time! There's a very strong MPS vibe here – as trumpeter Dusko Goykovich leads a swinging sextet that includes Nathan Davis on flute, soprano, and tenor – blowing some tremendously soulful reed lines – plus incredible rhythms from Mal Waldron on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Cees See on drums. The record's an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective – but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could – damn soulful, and with a great exotic vibe. Davis is especially great, and plays in a soaring modal vein that's similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in America in the early 70s. The album's a beautiful session that often get's overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalog – but it's really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that's waiting to be rediscovered by the Dusty Groove crowd. Titles include "Macedonia", "Old Fisherman's Daughter", "Jumbo Uganda", "Bem Basha", "Saga Se karame", and "The Nights Of Skopje". CD

Perhaps the best officially-released Dead live album of it's time – the epic self-titled/Skull & Roses – one that finds the Dead at an early high point! The Grateful Dead are best remembered all these years later for their post-reunion tours and in their roles as the unrivaled fathers of all jam bands – but if you're asking us about The Dead, we'll tell you that these fellas don't get the critical respect they deserve for some of their most concise original songs. Or their unique interpretations of classic American songcraft. You get both on this great double live album, as well as some straight-up sharp live performances. This might be the group's peak!

The Milford Graves Percussion Ensemble is mostly just Milford Graves himself, playing on drums, bells, gongs, and shakers – joined on this early album by Sunny Morgan, who also plays drums and bells on the set – working with Graves in a spiritual exploration of space and sound that predates some of the AACM recordings by a few years, and which shows ESP to be one of the most groundbreaking jazz imprints of the 60s! Tracks have a fairly hard hitting approach, and titles include "Nothing", "Nothing 13", "Nothing 5-7", and "Nothing 19". CD

Nobuo Hara & His Sharps & Flats with Oliver NelsonOliver Nelson In Tokyo ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $44.99
Oliver Nelson makes a great appearance here with the Sharps & Flats group of Nobuo Hara – an excellent Japanese ensemble who are clearly inspired by Nelson's soulful arrangements of the 60s! Oliver's the reed soloist on the album, not the leader – and it's great to hear him getting a bit of his own sort of treatment while stretching out as an individual voice – free to remind us that he's also a hell of a soloist when he wants to be, with reed talents that work perfectly with the larger sense of tone from the bigger group! Nelson plays soprano sax wonderfully on a few cuts – and titles include "Scarborough Fair", "Charade", "Summertime", "Round Midnight", "Yesterday", "Sermonette", and "How Insensitive".

Jutta HippJutta Hipp With Zoot Sims ... LP
Blue Note, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A wonderful pairing of this German pianist and American tenor star Zoot Sims – and an album that may well be the greatest that Jutta Hipp ever cut! Hipp was one of the rising stars of the German postwar jazz scene in the 50s – and although she issued other American albums in the decade for Blue Note and Decca, this side's probably the best-remembered of the bunch – thanks to the presence of Zoot, and support from a great rhythm section that includes Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – both of whom match the modern tones of Jutta's piano, but also give a solidly soulful Blue Note feel to the set. The group's completed by trumpeter Jerry Lloyd, who helps bring a nice sparkle to the frontline – and titles include "Just Blues", "Wee Dot", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Down Home".

Loleatta HollowayCry To Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Aware/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99
A wonderful album of southern soul from Loleatta Holloway! The record was her last in the deep soul mode – and it's a gem that should have made her as big as her later disco records – a really well-crafted extension of styles that Stax and Atlantic had done in the 60s, but given a smoother, more sophisticated vibe for the 70s! The record was produced by Floyd Smith, and it's got some of the most sophisticated production we've heard on a southern diva album from the 70s – with instrumentation that still boggles us with its brilliance. Case in point is the amazing cut "Cry To Me", which has these insane banks of "weeping" guitar that send chills down our spine! The cut was written by Sam Dees, who also penned some other fine material for the album – and titles include "I Know Where You're Coming From", "Just Be True To Me", "Something About The Way I Feel", and a cover of Ruby Andrews' "Casanova". Features two bonus tracks – "Bring It On Up" and the unreleased "This Man's Arms". CD

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayLoleatta (1973) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Aware/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $24.99
If you only know Loleatta Holloway as a disco singer, you'll be really amazed at this debut album from 1973 – because Loleatta emerges first as deep soul singer with a strong southern vibe – very much in the mode the Atlanta scene did best, before picking up the pace a bit more as the 70s moved on! There's a mellow, blue sort of vibe to the record – but still plenty of that pride and power that made Holloway an equally great singer on an upbeat tune – served up here on tunes by Sam Dees, Ashford & Simpson, and other hip songwriters of the period – set to strong arrangements by Mike Terry, who does a great job of bringing out the lady at her best. Titles include "We Did It", "Mother Of Shame", "Only A Fool", "So Can I", "Our Love", and "Love Woke Me Up". Features two bonus tracks – "Rainbow 71" and "For Sentimental Reasons". CD

Barbara HowardOn The Rise (with download) ... LP
Remined/Colemine, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A lost Ohio soul treasure – the initial effort by a singer with a hell of a voice, but one who languished in obscurity after the poor response to this debut LP! Barbara Howard really knocks it out of the park here – singing like a deep soul diva with a hell of a lot of power and focus – but also moving effortlessly through material from a variety of modes, often given a bit of a jazzy twist in the backings – almost as if Howard's trying to be the southern soul answer to Nancy Wilson on Capitol Records! There's maybe a Spanky Wilson vibe to the whole thing – with a similar punch in the arrangements – and titles include "The Man Above", "Save Your Love For Me", "Light My Fire", "My Song", "I Need You", "Welcome Home", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "For Once In My Life".

Linda HoylePieces Of Me/The Fetch (with bonus track) ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of albums from this overlooked singer! First up is Pieces Of Me – the debut solo album from Linda Hoyle – an overlooked British singer, but a great one from the same generation that gave us Christine Perfect (later McVie) – graced with a similarly strong range and equal inspiration from earlier blues recordings! Yet also like Christine, Linda stretches out with these confident modes that really move past her roots – which also include previous performances with the group Affinity, although she's a much stronger solo act on her own! The core group of players on the set are more than enough of a pedigree of its quality – with guitars from Chris Spedding, drums from John Marshall, and bass from Jeff Clyne – plus piano, electric piano, production, and larger arrangements from Karl Jenkins – who really makes the whole thing sound wonderful. The set was also produced by Pete King for Ronnie Scott Productions – one more excellent piece of the pie – and titles include "Lonely Woman", "Backlash Blues", "Black Crow", "Morning For One", "Journey's End", "The Ballad Of Morty Mole", and "Pieces Of Me". The Fetch is a much different record overall, but still has Linda's great vocals at the core – done in recent years, which might be tipped off by the later cover image by Roger Dean – and done with an assortment of mellower modes served up by guitars (acoustic and electric), keyboards, and a mix of live drums and electronic rhythms. The instrumentation is relatively stripped-down, and Linda's vocals are still wonderful – almost the majesty of Norma Winstone in her later years, but more tunefully song-based – on titles that include "Maida Vale", "Cut & Run", "Brighton Pier", "The Fetch", "Snowy Night", and "Earth & Stars".

Mississippi John HurtWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Rare recordings of delta blues legend Mississippi John Hurt – captured solo and beautifully well on 3 dates in late 1964, recorded by Gene Rosenthal – with Hurt's distinctive way of a somehow gentle melodic acoustic blues guitar sound, coming from hard-strummed and plucked strings as unvarnished and amazing as can be – and a way with vocals that's just as unique and wonderful! It's got the intimacy of the best field recordings, but the sound quality and John's voice and guitar are in such fine form here, it feels "big" despite being as raw and real as can be. Includes "Slidin' Delta", "Louis Collins", "Staggerlee", "Monday Mornin' Blues", "Comin' Home", "Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor", "You Can't Come In", "Joe Turner", "Lonesome Am I", "Trouble Blues", "Nobody's Dirty Business", "Lovin' Spoonful", "Worried Blues" and "Avalon Blues".

Eivind AarsetIE ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. Used ... $9.99
One of the most dynamic records we've ever heard from Eivind Aarset – a set that's got all the offbeat electronics of his other albums, but which sometimes comes across with a lot more drive and direct power overall! Some points almost have a full-on fusion feel – with drums that propel the other instrumentation, and create a lot more structure in the sound – while other moments continue the more abstract level of Aarset's electronic explorations, but sometimes with a bit more warmth overall – thanks in part to some occasional added horns and other elements – plus compelling non-electric sounds on logdrum, tympani, prepared piano, and glockenspiel. There's a tiny bit of vocals on the record, but most of the set is instrumental – and shifts between some guitar lines from Eivind, and the wider sonic palette. Titles include "Rask", "Hidden/Feral", "One & The Same", "Through Clogged Streets Passed Rotten Buildings", "Return To Her Home", and "They'll Be Asked Nothing". CD

AB SkhyRamblin' On (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MGM/Big Pink (South Korea), 1970. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A lost hard rock gem from a Milwaukee quartet – produced by Kim Fowley with a sound that's as raw and garagey as his best indie productions from the mid 60s! These guys have all sorts of familiar elements in the mix – an influence from blues, a trippier style of guitar, and some nicely soulful currents in the vocals of Den Geyer – but there's a special brew that takes all of these qualities into special territory, making for the kind of standout set that was mysteriously overlooked at the time – but which makes for one of those rare treasures that lie far below the giants of the classic rock generation. Titles include "Gotta Be Free", "Hope For The Future", "Pearl", "Lady In The Dark", "I'm Walkin", "Trackin Shoes", "Sweet Mother Earth", and the jazzy guitar tune "Gazebo" – dedicated to the great Gabor Szabo!

Joshua Abrams & Natural Information SocietyMandatory Reality ... CD
Eremite, 2019. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A really fantastic album from bassist Joshua Abrams – a set that may well be his greatest to date – and that's saying a lot, given all the other work he's given us in recent years! The double-length set has Abrams working with this lineup of improvising jazz talents, but in a way that's very rhythmic, and very organic – slow-building songs that almost seem to mix jazz with inspiration from gamelan music, but with very spiritual currents overall – music that builds slowly and flows to the cosmos – almost in a way that reminds us of the seminal "On The Beach" by Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble! Yet Abrams is very much in his own territory here – working with a lineup that features the leader on guimbri, Lisa Alvarado on harmonium and gongs, Mikel Avery on tam-tam and gongs, Ben Boye on electric autoharp and piano, Hamid Drake on tabla and tar, Ben Lamar Gay on cornet, Nick Mazzarella on alto saxophone, and Jason Stein on bass clarinet – with every member of the ensemble also performing on flutes. The sound is incredible – music to build a bridge to the heavens – and titles include "In Memory's Prism", "Finite", "Shadow Conductor", and "Agree". CD
