✨✧ CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.

Georgie FameGeorgie Does His Thing With Strings/Knock On Wood/CBS Singles ... CD
CBS/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 20.99
Some of our favorite work ever from the mighty Georgie Fame – key tracks from his years on CBS – when he was really moving past straight jazz, into a whole great style of his own! First up is the full album Georgie Does His Thing With Strings – a set that has Georgie Fame singing with a host of string-heavy backings from the great Keith Mansfield! Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents! There's always a nice sense of warmth and wit going on – one that keeps these tunes from just being the usual sort of standard vocal fare of the period – and Mansfield's backings have a lean quality that often pulses with a very gentle groove at the bottom. Titles include "Who's Kissing You Blues", "Girl Talk", "This Guy's In Love With You", "A House Is Not A Home", "Woe Is Me", "Need Your Love So Bad", and "Guess Who I Saw Today". Next is the rare Knock On Wood EP – with four songs that include the title track, plus "Close The Door", "All I'm Asking", and "Didn't Want To Have To Do It". THEN – the CD adds in 21 more bonus tracks – almost all non-album single cuts by Fame from the late 60s and start of the 70s – most of which have never been reissued, and are a flurry of mad soul, clever vocals, and lots of hip instrumental twists – all delivered with that undeniable Georgie Fame charm. Titles include "Down Along The Cover", "Seventh Son", "No Thanks", "Try My World", "Bidin My Time", "For Your Pleasure", "Kentucky Child", "Peaceful", "Entertaining Mr Sloan", "Someday Man", and "The Movie Star Song".

Doctor Down TripDoctor Down Trip ... CD
CBS/Big Pink (South Korea), 1973. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
The full length debut of this Belgian band from the 70s – one who'd issued a fair bit of singles before the set, but who really knock it out of the park with a well-crafted sound that really shows the time they'd put into honing their style! The set's definitely got plenty of hard rock appeal, but it's also not just some strutting guitars and bass – as there's a nicely varied approach to the way the songs come together – some more contemplative moments that make the full-on guitar explosions so great! Guitars are by Michael Heslop and Serge Paul, bass is by John Hastry, drums by Paul Van Der Velden, and lead vocals are by Jean Paul Goosens – on titles that include "Lost City", "Wanted", "Anything Goes", "Better Run Away", "Feeling Good Again", and "Big Blue Train".

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireThat's The Way Of The World (expanded edition) ... CD
CBS, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Amazing! Earth Wind & Fire's ultimate moment of the 70s – and a perfect blending of all their influences that stands as a lasting tribute to their super-huge effect on soul music! The record features all aspects of the band coming into perfect cohesion – bassy funk, mellow soul, and afrocentric jazz – all expertly handled by the great Charles Stepney, who still has the same rich talent for blending styles that he had while working at Chess/Cadet during the glory days of the late 60s. Some of these songs have been played to death (and covered so much) over the years that it's often easy to forget what a crowning moment this was for former underground soul heroes Earth Wind & Fire – but we'll never cease to be amazed at the power of their mid 70s work, and this album's the best of the best. Titles include "Shining Star", "That's The Way Of The World", "Reasons", "Africano", "See The Light", and "Happy Feelin". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Shining Star (future star)", "All About Love (first impressions)", "Happy Feelin (anatomy of a groove)", "Caribou Chaser (jazzy jam)", and "That's The Way Of The World (Latin expedition)".

CBS/Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
Excellent work by this oft-overlooked east coast harmony group! Like a rare few groups at the time, The Ebonys had a sound that mixed male and female harmonies – in a sweetly mellow sound that was a lot hipper than more famous groups that used the style, and which had all the best elements of the Philly group approach of the early 70s. The set features some great tracks by Gamble & Huff – plus the group's incredible tune "Life In The Country" – a slow mellow stepper that never gets old! Other tracks include "It's Forever", "Hook Up & Get Down", "I Believe", "Sexy Ways", "Nation Time", and "You're The Reason Why". LP, Vinyl record album

CBS (Japan), 1969. Very Good+ ... $33.99 38.99

Given Mansfield's roots in the sound library scene, the style here is never as sleepy or hokey as you might expect from the "strings" in the title – but there is a moodier, mellower approach than you'd hear on other Fame albums – a style that's partially aimed at older jazz vocal modes, but which also echoes with sounds of the Scott Walker generation – a newly mature mode that's a really great fit for Georgie's unique style of singing, and which exposes yet another amazing side of his seemingly limitless talents!

✨✧ FieldsFeeling Free – The Complete Recordings (Fields/Contrasts/bonus tracks) ... CD
Esoteric/CBS (UK), 1971. New Copy 2CDs ... $16.99 24.99
The complete recorded legacy of Fields – an overlooked trio from the glory days of the UK prog scene! The set begins with the debut album from Fields – a group named after its keyboardist Graham Field, who first rose to fame in Rare Bird! The approach here is a bit similar – a nice lean take on prog styles – with fantastic work on drums from Andrew McCulloch, and vocals, bass, and guitar from Alan Barry – a singer who's soaring sound really fits the style of the record! There's ties here to McCulloch's later work in King Crimson – but overall, the record's got a tighter style, and never tries to do more than just rely on the strengths of the three musicians – which it does wonderfully well on titles that include "Feeling Free", "A Place To Lay My Head", "Not So Good", "Three Minstrels", "Over & Over Again", and "Friend Of Mine". The set then moves on to their second album Contrasts – recorded with a different singer than Barry, but an equally great sound – oddly not issued by CBS at the time, until Graham Field supervised a CD release many years later! The set's got titles that include "Someone To Trust", "Wedding Bells", "Storm", "The Old Canal", "Music Was Their Game", and "Put Out To Grass". 2CD set comes with bonus tracks – including "Set Yourself Free", "The River", "Spring", "Slow Susan (alt)", "A Place To Lay My Head (alt)", and BBC Radio One versions of "A Friend Of Mine" and "Wouldn't You Agree".

A hip little live date from Aretha Franklin – one that's got a very jazzy feel, and some great small combo backings! The album's almost a distillation of the jazzy styles on Aretha's first albums for Columbia – taken into even leaner territory here, in ways that really set Franklin loose on vocals – making for some of her most forceful moments on record at the time. The quartet features pianist Teddy Harris, who steps back on a few tunes to let Franklin take over the piano – and titles include "Once In A Lifetime", "Love For Sale", "Impossible", "Today I Love Everybody", and "Without The One You Love".

Free LifeFree Life ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
One of the great late 70s Columbia sets from the Earth Wind & Fire side of the universe – the one and only album by this obscure west coast group, who get some strong help in the studio from Phillip Bailey! Bailey co-produced, and wrote some great songs for the record – and the group's own mix of jazz, funk, and soul is very much in the best spirit of Earth Wind & Fire at the time – tight at all the right moments, but also with this righteous energy in the background – an overall feel that's way deeper than most large ensembles on major labels. This spirit really comes through in the sublime cut "I'll Keep A Light In My Window" – which has a beautifully mellow jazzy groove, and which is on a par with anything Maurice White was laying down in the mid-tempo mode in the 70s – but the whole album's mighty nice, and other titles include "Smile", "Spirit Of Love", "Second Coming", and "Say You Do".

Leata GallowayNaked Truth ... CD
CBS/Expansion (UK), 1988. Used ... $4.99
A sweet late 80s soul set from Leata Galloway – a great singer with a strong musical theater background and too few solo soul sets like this one! Leata's voice is naturally deep, but her range is incredible – which allows her to bring both heavy strength and fragile delicacy, plus these incredible little vocal embellishments without ever laying it on too thickly. To put it succinctly, she's an impeccable singer and knows how to utilize her gifts – which sure makes us wish that she made more records! The production by Nick Martinelli and Preston Glass is nicely smooth and built to last, with some telling period touches, but the album holds up very, very well. Titles include "With Every Beat Of My Heart", "Fascination", "Shades Of Blue", "Cry Me A River", "I'm Scared Of You", "The Naked Truth", "One Of These Nights" and more. CD

CBS, 1987. Used 2CD ... $9.99
An incredible project from composer Philip Glass – the third in his cycle of operas that helped transform the world of classical music – and maybe the most creative of the bunch! Glass based the text is taken from original sources, and sung in original languages – quite a feat for the singers involved, and a wonderful combination to the orchestrations – which are heavy in the kinds of rhythmic flows that we always love in the composer's music – using keyboards, woodwinds, and fantastic voices in long-flowing minimalist modes! Shalom Goldman worked with Glass on the vocals – and this performance features Dennis Russell Davies at the head of the Stuttgart State Opera orchestra and chorus. CD

✨✧ Philip GlassDance Pieces ... CD
CBS, 1987. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Don't let the 80s-styled cover, and the word "dance" put you off – as the set's filled with beautiful music from Philip Glass – two works done at a time when the composer was maybe at his greatest power, each for two difference dance-related projects! Side one features "In The Upper Room" – done for choreographer Twyla Tharp, and with full orchestrations that are wonderful – very much in the spirit of some of his soundtrack material for Koyaanisqatsi – but without some of the deeper tones and vocal chorus parts. At times, the piano is at the forefront – played by Michael Riesman – but strings and woodwinds are key, too, as the piece shifts through five different dances. "Glasspiece" was done for Jerome Robbins, and has a bit more keyboards at the start, like some of Glass' smaller group 70s work – but then brings in woodwinds and strings in a nice way, before moving back to more keyboards in the final third, which is a reworking of a passage from the opera Akhnaten.

An unusual 70s album from Herbie Hancock – first in that it was only issued in Japan at the time, and second in that it was an all-acoustic set that came out at a time when Herbie was mostly working in an electric mode! Yet that previous work definitely informs the sound here – as there's a sense of flow to the piano that certainly comes from all the work that Herbie had been doing on keyboards – a lightly funky current at times, and a nicely open, stretched-out vibe on the tracks! The trio is great – with Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams on drums – and titles include a great remake of "Speak Like A Child", plus "Watch It", "Look", "Milestones", and "Whatcha Waitin For". All tracks are long, and the record's got a nice sweet mellow vibe! LP, Vinyl record album

Acoustic magic from Herbie Hancock – proof that he wasn't only cutting electro records in the 80s! The set's got a fluid, open feel that's a bit like some of the VSOP Quintet work – although the group here is slightly different, with Hancock on acoustic piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus a young Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – stepping in where Wayne Shorter and Freddie Hubbard left off. The tracks are somewhat sharp-edged and modern, but never in a way that's too outside – more just a continuation of the VSOP mode, with some of the Marsalis love of darker colors and tones. The double-length set has plenty of room for long solos – and titles include "Well You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Clear Ways", "A Quick Sketch", "The Eye Of The Hurricane", "Parade", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

Isley Jasper IsleyBroadway's Closer To Sunset Blvd. ... LP
CBS, 1984. Sealed ... $6.99
The first breakaway effort from the trio of Ernie Isley, Chris Jasper, and Marvin Isley – a set that's got an even leaner groove than some of the Isley Brothers material from years before! The group really hit their stride right away – stepping out in a sweet array of funky rhythms that have some definite 80s touches on the beats, yet which still share all the best Isleys elements overall! Guitar parts are especially sharp – that carved in soul sound that showed up in most Isleys projects from the early 70s onwards – and the vocals have a great sense of warmth and soul, especially on the mellower tunes in the set, which turn down some of the more hook-heavy rhythms heard on other tracks. Titles include "Serve You Right", "Sex Drive", "Love Is Gonna Last Forever", "Kiss & Tell", "I Can't Get Over Losin You", "Look The Other Way", "Break This Chain", and "Broadway's Closer Than Sunset Blvd".

Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love ... LP
CBS, 1985. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – but also pushes the groove in a slightly different way – often using leaner arrangements that are focused on beats, basslines, and keyboards – which only seem to make the warm vocals of the trio sound even more seductive in the end! There's that subtle sense of majesty that the group always had in their music at their height – an influence that might well come from the presence of Jasper – and the album's noteworthy for the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul!

The album's pretty great, stepping out into the solo soul realm with terrific footing – and the best tunes have a smoothed out modern approach that's actually quite refreshing – and a bit better than some of the work by Labelle in the late years! 9 tracks in all, including "Dan Swit Me", "You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover", "I Think About You" and "Do I Stand A Chance".

LenoVida E Obra De Johnny McCartney ... CD
CBS/Lion, 1971. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
Post-Tropicalia work from Leno – a Brazilian singer who'd worked as part of a duo during the Jovem Guarda years, but who really sounds great here on his own! The style's a bit more straightforward rock than the Brazilian sound of a few years back – a bit fuzzy and compressed at times, yet still with a really strong edge, and light years from more mainstream American rock of the time. Many tracks were supposedly banned by the censors in Brazil at the time, although from today's perspective they've got a hard-rocking charm that's more innocent than anything else – a quality that makes the record ripe for rediscovery today! Lion productions have done a wonderful job with the notes and packaging (as usual!) – and titles include "Johnny McCartney", "Por Que Nao", "Lady Baby", "Deixo O Tempo Me Levar", "Peguei Uma Apolo", "Pobre Do Rei", "Sentando No Arco-Iris", and "Bis".

Oiling BoilingTwo Faces ... LP
CBS (Finland), 1977. Sealed ... $19.99 24.99
A lost later album from the Oiling Boiling combo of drummer Matti Oiling – an artist who's best known for his funky work earlier in the 70s! The set's a bit more straight jazz, but is still quite soulful overall – and the group stand as a nice contrast to some of the more far-out Finnish groups of the time – with a vibe that hearkens back to American soul jazz of the 60s on side one, and a more 70s-styled funk approach on side two! Oiling's drums are rock-solid throughout, but the real strength of the album lies in the horn playes – a great pairing of the trumpet of Markku Johansson and tenor of Erik Dannholm – both players who bring a strong sense of color to the album. The group also features Juha Bjorninen on guitar, Ilkka Willman on bass, and Tuomo Tanska on both piano and Fender Rhodes – and titles include "Groovy Samba", "Funkalator", "Slow Changes", "Cyclops Dance", "Elegy", "Boiling Blues", and "Better Git It In Your Soul".

Beautifully spare work from guitarist Baden Powell – and a record that certainly lives up to its title! Baden's playing in a mostly unaccompanied setting for the session – working through some tunes that are markedly gentler than his bossa era numbers, but which demonstrate an amazing command of the acoustic guitar – a fragile, yet moving sensibility that's beautifully recorded throughout. A few tracks feature light percussion, or a bit of bass – but Baden's solo guitar is in the front of the mix throughout – on titles that include "Bassamba", "Brasiliana", "Fim Da Linha", "Marcia Eu Te Amo", "Na Gafiera Do Vidigal", and "Chara".

CBS/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A fantastic bit of female funk from the 70s – and a set that was recorded in Germany by a very exotic singer! The album is Asha Puthli's first – and includes some unusual interpretations of work by JJ Cale, John Lennon, Bill Withers, and George Harrison – plus a great tune of her own – set to these cool backings that have lots of spacey electric modes blended with smoother funk passages – kind of a precursor to later Munich disco modes, but with a slower, slinkier feel. Asha's voice is very weird – a bit in the "love to love you baby" mode, and with a range of sounds that moves up and down the scale almost as much as Minnie Riperton. The record's got a nice mix of jazzy arrangements, and Asha's unique high-pitched vocals work great on tracks like "Lies", "Right Down Here", "I Dig Love", "Truth", "I Am A Song", "Let Me In Your Life", and "This Is Your Life".

The starkest, sparest ever by Bruce Springsteen – sans accompaniment for the most part, having famously opted to release the haunting guitar, voice and harmonica demos as the actual album – and it's devastatingly strong to this day! The hallmark facet is that it's a largely solo acoustic record, the the great thing about that is how distinctively Springsteen sounding it is – with the all the earnestness of his more anthemic material, and more – just done with a sometimes somber, always intimate approach. One of those records that deserves all of the lofty praise! Includes "Nebraska", "Atlantic City", "Mansion On The Hill", "Johnny 99", "State Trooper", "Used Cars", "Open All Night", "My Father's House" and "Reason To Believe".. CD

Sublime soul from Superior Movement – an overlooked Chicago group of the 80s, but one that's every bit as wonderful as any of the bigger acts we can think of from the time! The group definitely put harmonies first in their music – and although the album's a bigger-label effort, the vocals have the wonderfully personal feel of smaller label harmony soul from years back – retooled a bit with 80s instrumentation, which makes for a surprisingly great mix with the lyrics. Things are tight, but never too smooth – very well balanced, with none of the too-commercial missteps that other groups were making at the time – and titles include "The Key To Your Heart", "For You", "Come Fly With Me", "Lost Affair", "Guilty", "Sweet Dreams", and "Be My Cinderella".

The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some tight changes and more pronounced rhythms that really give the best cuts a great groove! The group's a sextet – with Bob James on electric piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Cobham on drums – and titles include a monster version of Weldon Irvine's "Sister Sanctified" – a great funk tune that's probably best known as the sample for "My Philosophy" by BDP! Other tracks include "Speedball", "Cherry", and "The Revs". CD

Weather ReportHeavy Weather ... LP
CBS, 1977. Very Good+ ... $19.99 24.99
One of the biggest hits ever for Weather Report – thanks to Joe Zawinul's leadoff track "Birdland" – one of those tunes that entered the canon immediately, and saw countless covers pop up over the years – kind of a rare thing for a jazz tune at this point in time! The track's driving, building energy shows a newly focused side to Weather Report – one that's traded some of the spacier, more experimental moments of the past for a dynamic energy that still puts them ahead of most other 70s fusion supergroups. The presence of Jaco Pastorius is felt quite strongly here – especially on the way the colors ebb and flow up from the bottom – and the way that Jaco's using his bass with the energy of a solo jazz guitar! Alex Acuna and Manolo Badrena are on percussion, and Wayne Shorter's reeds still crackle with a nice degree of soul – on titles that include "Harlequin", "Rumba Mama", "A Remark You Made", "Teen Town", "Palladium", "Havona", and "The Juggler".

The album captures the group at their early best – crafting some raw harmonies that rival the best coming out of Chicago at the time, set to stellar production by Carl Davis in his hit Okeh mode. The material really changes up nicely, taking the record way past just a mix of singles and filler, and standing out strongly from some of the other LP releases on Okeh – which could suffer just that fate. Titles include "I'll Leave It Up To You", "I'll Come Running", "This Heart Of Mine", "I Need Your Love", "So Much Love In My Heart", and "Loveland".

A crowning classic from maestro Waltel Branco – a Brazilian talent who could be smooth and sophisticated, but also pretty darn funky too – especially on this famous album from this 70s! The set takes off in a large ensemble vein of Brazilian grooves from a few years before – kind of more of a kick to the Blue Brazil/Odeon generation, as Branco works with a large string and horn section, but also ensures lots of tightness in the rhythms, and sweet electric touches on keyboards. There's a bit of Brazilian percussion at times – which let you know you're not in familiar CTI territory – and as with so many other great Brazilian albums of the time, the production is superb – really different than on American records of this nature. Titles include "Lady Samba", "Jael", "Satiricon", "Walking", "Luar Do SErgao", "Petit Fils", and "Zoraia". LP, Vinyl record album

CBS, 1968. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last Columbia album from the team of Chad Stuart & Jeremy Clyde – and a record that's even more baroquely brilliant than their previous set, Of Cabbages & Kings! Chad & Jeremy have really gone over the top here – reaching into fuller orchestrations and deeper social themes that rival their most complex contemporaries – sitting in a special space somewhere between The Zombies and The Moody Blues, and working at a level that haunts the most heavenly corners of both of those influences! As on Cabbages, Gary Usher produced – and really manages to make Chad's arrangements sound great – using the cellos and woodwinds without any overdone qualities, and really keeping the acoustic guitar high enough in the mix to maintain a sense of sincerity in the tunes. Titles include "The Raven", "Pipe Dream", "Transatlantic Trauma 1966", "Sidewalk Requiem Los Angeles June 5th & 6th", "Paxton Quigley's Had The Curse", "Pantheistic Study For Guitar & Large Bird", "The Emancipation Of Mr X", "The Ark", and "Painted Dayglow Smile".

One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and titles include "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "Clash City Rockers", "I Fought The Law", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "White Man In Hammersmith Palais", and "I'm So Bored With The USA".

✨✧ Wolfgang Dauner TrioDream Talk (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
CBS/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early session from German pianist Wolfgang Dauner – one with a sound that's every bit as great as you'd expect from the title! The "dream talk" component here is one that comes from Dauner's gentle, yet modern approach to the keys – one that's clearly learning lessons from 50s modernists like George Russell or Bill Evans, but which is stretching out here in some of the bolder freedoms of the European scene at the time – a precursor to later modes on MPS and Saba, but performed here with a bit more careful restraint. The record's nicely free from some of the overindulgences of some of Dauner's 70s sides, and is an acoustic effort throughout – extremely imaginative, with a "set free" quality that's also never too "out", nor too full of itself – a bit like the best early recordings by Steve Kuhn. Wolfgang's approach to the keys is nothing less than revelatory – and he receives well matched accompaniment from bassist Eberhard Weber and drummer Fred Braceful. Titles include "Free Fall", "Dammerung", "Soul Eyes", "A Long Night", "Dream Talk", and "Bird Food". CD

And there are 4 numbers, a pair each from the Coltrane/Garland incarnation of the quintet, "Sweet Sue" & "Budo", and a transitional sextet from 1962, "Devil May Care" & "Blue Xmas".

2 of our favorite albums from the enigmatic Georgie Fame – both recorded right at a perfect point in his career! Seventh Son is a set that still has Fame working in some of the older American modes of his roots, but which also pushes past jazz and R&B towards some much hipper territory! The styles here show a bit of a singer/songwriter mode – even though Georgie didn't write the tracks – and the album makes great uses of that sweetly compressed sound that Fame brought naturally to his work, but balances that with some nicely dynamic arrangements played by a host of top-shelf British jazz musicians. The sound is quite hard to describe adequately, but let's call it a bursting forth of the charm and inventiveness that we always knew Fame had inside of him, but never got full exposure until now! Titles include "Blossom", "Ho Ho Ho", "Inside Story", "Am I Wasting My Time", "Is It Really The Same", "Bird In A World Of People", and "Somebody Stole My Thunder". Going Home is an album that's far more soulful and laidback than some of Fame's earlier sets, and filled with wonderful tunes that really sparkle with warmth and imagination! Georgie didn't write the tunes himself, but he's done a great job here of pulling them together – picking put work that's more mature and a bit less gimmicky than his early hits – and singing them alongside gentle backings from Keith Mansfield that often include a bit of electric piano, used in a way that further emphasizes the adult soul side of the tracks – in a way that's almost like Kenny Rankin, whose "Peaceful" is sung very nicely here. Titles include "Going Home", "I Believe In Love", "Happiness", "Children Of My Mind", "Lay Me Down", "Sister Jane", "Peaceful", "It Won't Hurt To Try It", and "Foolish Style". CD

✨✧ FieldsFields ... LP
CBS (UK), 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The debut album from Fields – a group named after its keyboardist Graham Field, who first rose to fame in Rare Bird! The approach here is a bit similar – a nice lean take on prog styles – with fantastic work on drums from Andrew McCulloch, and vocals, bass, and guitar from Alan Barry – a singer who's soaring sound really fits the style of the record! There's ties here to McCulloch's later work in King Crimson – but overall, the record's got a tighter style, and never tries to do more than just rely on the strengths of the three musicians – which it does wonderfully well on titles that include "Feeling Free", "A Place To Lay My Head", "Not So Good", "Three Minstrels", "Over & Over Again", and "Friend Of Mine". LP, Vinyl record album
