✨✧ Charles EarlandGreat Pyramid ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most spiritual, soulful albums ever from the great Charles Earland – a set that's almost his answer to the keyboard styles of Lonnie Liston Smith in the 70s – and done with a very spiritual vibe! We love Earland on Hammond – but here he also plays Fender Rhodes, clavinet, moog, and Arp – never to excess – blended with the sort of full, soaring arrangements you might get from someone like Larry Mizell or Skip Scarbrough at the time! Many numbers feature vocals in the mix, but also showcase lots of keyboard solos too – again like Smith – and the album's got a sense of style, power, and ambition that really make us respect Earland even more – especially given that he handled most of the writing, arranging, and production. Titles include "Upper Atlantis", "In The Land Of Mu", "Drifting", "Mona Lisa", and "The Great Pyramid". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles EarlandPerceptions ... LP
Mercury, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic club jazz from Charles Earland – one of the best LPs from his late 70s, post-Hammond period – when he was really opening up and exploring the use of a variety of keyboards! The set was done in conjunction with Randy Muller – who arranged, produced, and wrote the tracks – and it's also got background vocals by Skyy, who fit in nicely with the record's R&B-tinged approach to the material. Lots of nice clubby groovers, and Charles even sings lead vocals on one really nice mellow track. Titles include "Let The Music Play", "I Like It", "Changes", "Over & Over", and "Smile".

✨✧ Charles EarlandThird Degree Burn ... LP
Milestone, 1989. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice later set from the mighty burner, after he returned to the more bluesy organ based format from the more R&B and fusion inflected sets he'd released throughout the late 70s and early 80s. Though the rough edges are a bit more smoothed out on some of the numbers than we'd care for, the group's composed of really solid players including Grover Washington, David Newman and Bobby Broom, and the majority of the set cooks nicely, on numbers like the title track, "Cosmic Phriends", "Don't Be So Mean Arlene" and "The Way You Make Me Feel".

✨✧ Vince AndrewsLove, Oh Love ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... About January 20, 2021
A great little batch of jazzy soul by Vince Andrews – a vocalist and sax player from Columbus, Ohio – which is where he recorded this obscure early 80s set. The record's actually pretty darn great – stridently swinging, in kind of a Charles Earland vocal mode. Bobby Floyd plays organ on most cuts, and the album's got a soulful groove that really keeps things going at a strong pace – and lots of titles are originals, including "Love Oh Love", "Akila", "The One Who Needs You", and "Vibrating With Vince".

Frank Cunimondo TrioSagittarius (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mondo/Music On Vinyl (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 28.99
A fantastic album by one of the greatest funky keyboard players of the 70s! Frank Cunimondo may have never made it out of his native Pittsburgh during much of the decade, but albums like this will forever ensure that his name be known in the ranks of groovers everywhere! The album features Frank working with his regular trio – but unlike some of his other earlier sessions, this one's got a large amount of work on electric piano, which brings a whole new dimension to Frank's playing! The album kicks off with "Sagitarius", a 12 minute groover that runs along with electric piano solos at top pace, like some of Charles Earland's best work on the Leaving This Planet album. Next up is an 8 minute version of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon", done with lots of funky work on the ARP, squeaking and grooving away in a style that would make Herbie proud! Side two begins with the 14 minute original "Slalom", a cool dark number that builds and builds, adding in more keyboards and getting slowly funkier, in kind of a Bob James mode. Last up is "Samba Nova", a short little bossa number that chills things down nicely. A great little album – and rare as hen's teeth! LP, Vinyl record album

Joey DeFrancescoTrip Mode ... CD
High Note, 2015. Used ... $9.99
Is it us, or does Joey DeFrancesco just keep getting better and better? The Hammond player's always been one of the best of his generation – but his recent run of records really has us sitting up and taking notice all over again, and maybe finally ranking Joey with some of our favorite organ jazz giants from years back! This album has the confidence, clarity, and vibrancy that few folks can really bring to the instrument – maybe Don Patterson or Charles Earland back in the day – although we'd hardly paint Joey with the same brush, as he's got a unique approach that's definitely all his own, and getting better and better every year. DeFrancesco also plays a bit of trumpet on the record – and those tracks feature additional bass from Mike Boone – who joins Jason Brown on drums and Dan Wilson on guitar. Titles include "Trip Mode", "Who Shot John", "Traffic Jam", "Cuz U No", "In That Order", and "On Georgian Bay". CD

Lou DonaldsonHot Dog ... CD
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $11.99
From the title, to the cover, to the gritty grooves way down in the wax – this has got to be one of the funkiest Blue Note albums ever – a real landmark from the legendary Lou Donaldson! The set kicks off with a hard and heavy groove from the very first note – thanks to some super-tight drumming by a young Idris Muhammad – still billed under his birth name of Leo Morris on the sleeve, but already hitting the kit with that snapping post-Popcorn style that would revolutionize funky jazz in years to come! Donaldson's plenty smoking himself on electrified alto sax – played with that great mix of flatness and echo that you'd hear in Eddie Harris' albums of the same time – and the rest of the lineup is equally cooking, with Melvin Sparks on guitar, Charles Earland on organ, and Ed Williams blasting away on funky trumpet! Titles include killer remakes of "It's Your Thing" and "Who's Making Love" – plus Donaldson originals "Hot Dog" and "Turtle Walk" – all nice and long, and with a really raw sound! CD

Piotr FigielPiotr (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
Killer Hammond from Polish player Piotr Figiel – a player with a really wonderful sort of groove! The album's got a vibe that's halfway between the Hammond antics of Alan Hawkshaw and the freer lines of American jazzmen like Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland – augmented by other cool production touches at points, which gives the record a very groovy late 60s sort of Euro feel! The vocal group Bemibek sing these cool wordless vocals on the tune "Bit Of Spring Bit Of Summer" – and guitarist Dariusz Kozakiewicz adds a nice degree of fuzz to a few other tunes too – tripping out nicely with Piotr's very fluid lines on the Hammond! There's a bit of strings on a few numbers, bringing in a nice cinematic feel – and titles include "Prelude In E Minor", based on the same Chopin changes as Serge Gainsbourg's "Jane B" – plus "Never On Tuesday", "Breakfast At Midnight", "Away I'll Go", "Absence", and "Piece Of Space". CD features bonus tracks – long versions of "Skrawek Przestrzeni" and "Nieobecnosc". CD

Richard Groove HolmesOnsaya Joy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About December 20, 2020
Maybe one of the greatest albums ever cut by organist Richard Groove Holmes – and a set that's worth it alone for the massive title track! Groove soars right out of the gate on that one – taking up most of side one with help from a vamping trio of guitar and drums – while he delivers this stretched-out, hard-burning solo that almost seems to take a page out of the book of the younger Charles Earland – but also stands as a great reminder of the fresh, soulful genius that Holmes brought to the Hammond in the 60s! In addition to "Onsaya Joy", other tracks are a bit more straightforward, but no less soulful – and titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Song For My Father", and a remake of "Misty". CD

✨✧ VariousAin't It Funky Now! – Flat Out Funk From The Jazz Brotherhood ... CD
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, meaner, harder-hitting groove. And although the LP was the growing format during these days, there was actually a heck of a lot of great work issued on 45s – still spinning strong with the jukebox crowds in the clubs and tap rooms, and still getting major play on radio stations, where the single was still king. The set features many 45 mixes of funky classics that you might know from LPs – and intersperses them with some other more obscure numbers pulled from full albums – making for an all-solid, all-funky set of tracks from one of the hippest jazz labels ever! Titles include "Fire Eater" by Rusty Bryant, "Don't Knock My Love" by Idris Muhammad, "Jungle Strut" by Gene Ammons, "Express Yourself" by Idris Muhammad, "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Sing A Simple Song" by Charles Earland, "Son Of Man" by Houston Person, "Listen Here (part 1)" by Freddie McCoy, "Black Talk (part 1)" by Charles Earland, "Message From The Meters" by Leon Spencer, "Reelin With The Feeling" by Charles Kynard, "I Want You Back" by Harold Mabern, and "Thank You (part 1)" by Melvin Sparks.

VariousLove Saves the Day Part 2 – A History Of American Dance Music Culture 1970 to 1979 ... LP
Reappearing (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
A great little collection of unusual grooves – put together by author/dancefloor historian Tim Lawrence, and very much in the same spirit as his groundbreaking book of the same title! As with some of Lawrence's best work, the collection goes way past the obvious, and starts the clock at a time long before the disco years – really showing the variety of unusual rhythmic contributions that were bubbling under before breaking into the mainstream. Titles on this second vinyl volume include "Welcome To The Club" by Blue Magic, "Above & Beyond (12" version)" by Edgar Winter, "New York City" by Miroslav Vitous, "Fancy Dancer (12" version)" by Twennynine with Lenny White, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch, "Leaving This Planet" by Charles Earland, "Prophecy" by Margie Joseph, "I Can't Fight Your Love" by The Modulations, and "If You Want To Try Love Again Remember Me" by Laura Lee".

✨✧ Ed Bogas/Ray Shanklin/VariousFritz The Cat – Original Soundtrack (picture disc) ... LP
Fantasy, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each different track – but mostly featuring some older numbers from the Fantasy catalog, plus some key newer tracks for the set that are nice and funky! Original tunes include the bad-rapping "Fritz The Cat", by Ed Bogas and The Watson Sisters – plus the instrumentals "Duke's Theme" and "Bertha's Theme" by Ray Shanklin, and "The Riot" and "Winston" by Ed Bogas. Also includes "Love Light Of Mine" by The Watson Sisters, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, and "Mamblues" by Cal Tjader. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grover Washington JrAll The King's Horses ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Grover Washington's first albums as a leader – cut hot on the heels of some great work as a sideman, including some key funky dates with Charles Earland on Prestige! The sound here is a bit looser than some of Groover's smoother sides to come – a nice blend of his earthy jazz funk roots with the warmer sounds of the CTI/Kudu world – arranged and produced beautifully by keyboardist Bob James, who also plays both electric piano and harpsichord on the album! The cuts are a bit shorter than later on, but still totally tremendous – a sly, subtle approach to jazz funk that really took the keyboard/tenor mode into bold new territory for the 70s – a real genre-starting record that still sounds sublime all these many years later. Grover plays tenor and alto – no soprano sax yet – and other players include Richard Tee on organ, Billy Cobham or Bernard Purdie on drums, and Eric Gale or Cornell Dupree on guitar. Titles include "All The King's Horses", "Body & Soul", "Lean On Me", "Lover Man", "Love Song 1700", and "No Tears In The End". LP, Vinyl record album

Rhythm & Blues (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive collection of jazzy tracks, and one that maybe has a bit of interest to the soul instrumental scene too – given that these were the kind of cuts that played big with the mod scene in London in the mid 60s! The approach is pretty great – in that each of the 4CDs is divided up by year, and by nation – so that you get two CDs' of British jazz, and two CDs' of American work – all for a whopping total of 78 titles in all. The music runs very strongly towards the soul jazz side of the spectrum – with lots of tenor and organ work – but there's also a few vocal cuts, and some harder-swinging larger groups too – served up in a lineup that includes tracks by Stan Tracey, Johnny Hawksworth, Dick Morrissey, Georgie Fame, Mike Carr, Freddie Roach, Milt Jackson, Tubby Hayes, Joe Harriott, Gabor Szabo, Charles Earland, Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers, Neil Adrley, Kenny Clare, Danny Moss, Dudley Moore, Don Rendell, Gordon Beck, Ian Hamer, Johnny Scott, Les Condon, John Surman, and many others!

The Leaving This Planet EP is centered around a sweet cover of the Charles Earland classic – featuring beautiful soul vocals by Sharlene Hector – and Mark also covers Gene Harris's "Koko + Lee Roe" for another gem with a jazzy soul vibe.

✨✧ Herbie HancockMagic Windows (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/PTG (Netherlands), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little soul album from Herbie Hancock – but one that's often lost in the valleys between his bigger hits of the time! The record was cut in the space right before Herbie's big "Rockit" success – and it's a sweet bit of funky fusion that has a good dose of R&B in the mix – similar to other records from Hancock's Columbia label keyboardist contemporaries – like Rodney Franklin, Webster Lewis, or Charles Earland! All orchestrations are performed by Herbie on a host of keyboards and synthesizers, and just about every cut has vocals – from singers who include Sylvester, Gavin Christopher, and The Waters. But even with this soul component, Herbie still keeps things jazzy – using a good bit of keyboards to open up the tunes in the middle, and hitting hard on all numbers with that classic Hancock approach to funk! Titles include "Magic Number", "Tonight's The Night", "Everybody's Broke", "Help Yourself", and "Satisfied With Love". CD also features the bonus "Magic Number (disco mix)". CD

✨✧ Rufus HarleyRe-Creation Of The Gods ... CD
Ankh/Transparency, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most legendary albums of jazz funk ever recorded! Rufus Harley was a saxophone player who also picked up the bagpipes for a few excellent 60s albums for Atlantic Records – and although those records are great, this 1972 independent album is a real mind blower! By the time of this set, Rufus had really stretched out – both creatively and spiritually – working his standard bagpipe jazz groove into a much trippier sound, one that explored the tonal and modal properties of the instrument. Not only that, Rufus got a lot funkier than ever before – working here with organist Bill Mason, a sonic contemporary of Leon Spencer and Charles Earland – and the resultant mix of organ and bagpipes creates a monstrous sound that's unlike anything we can describe! The album's a mixture of Sufi and Biblical statements – fused into long funky jazz tracks, stretching out into some incredible grooves. Includes the classic "Malika", plus the cuts "Etymology", "Hypothesis", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", done in a great heavy version! CD also features a bonus 10 minute jam not on the original album! CD

Prestige, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Supremely heavy work from organist Leon Spencer – one of his classic jazz funk sessions for Prestige Records, and a record that shows him opening up his sound a bit more than before! The album has Spencer working in a few different lineups – some with small groups that feature Melvin Sparks on guitar and Idris Muhammad on drums – others with some slightly larger instrumentation and even a bit of strings, used in a sophisticatedly soulful style that reminds us a bit of CTI or Kudu backings of the time! Billy Ver Planck handles the larger arrangements, but even on these Leon's organ is right out front in the mix – really dominating the tunes, and soaring over the top with a newly fluid style that reminds us of Charles Earland at his own best during this time. Titles include the killer funky title cut – "Bad Walking Woman" – plus "When My Love Has Gone", "In Search Of Love", "Down On Dowling Street", "Hip Shaker", and "Bad Walking Woman". Cool cover, too, with a huge collage of photos of the backsides of exactly 99 "bad walking women"! LP, Vinyl record album

This set's a reworking of "The Planets" – the symphonic suite by the composer Gustav Holtz – whose spacey structures are perfect for Pat's other-worldly work on the keys. Trombonist Julian Priester plays on the record – adding a few analog moments next to Pat's work on the EMU Polyphonic Synthesizer – and titles include "Saturn The Bringer Of Old Age", "Neptune The Mystic", "Uranus, The Magician", "Mars The Bringer Of War", and "Mercury The Winged Messenger".
