Sonny & CherLook At Us/Wondrous World/In Case You're In Love (plus bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99
A huge amount of music from Sonny & Cher – a set that not only includes three full albums, but also every one of their singles for Atco Records too! First up is Look At Us – a fantastic moment in 60s pop – and the record that forever launched the duo of Sonny & Cher upon the world – a completely charming, if also mismatched couple whose work together is completely fantastic! Sonny had been bumping around the LA music scene for years by the time of this record – but when he found the young Cher, the pair instantly clicked – with a chemistry that's so different than so many other male/female duos of the time – partly because of the difference in their voices, but also because of the way that each of them remain completely individual, even while singing together. Titles include the massive worldwide hit "I Got You Babe", plus versions of "Then He Kissed Me", "The Letter", and "Let It Be Me". The real treat, though, is the material by Sonny – including the tunes "It's Gonna Rain", "Just You", and "Sing C'Est La Vie". On Wondrous World Of Sonny & Cher, it seems as if the pair can completely transform anything they touch with their talents! The tunes here are a mix of older numbers and a few originals by Sonny – arranged and produced by the man himself, and given an extra dose of soul, thanks to musical backings from Harold Battiste – who finds the sort of balance that also allowed these early records to cross over to an R&B market too. The vocals are wonderful – sometimes together, sometimes trading lines or choruses, on titles that include "I Look For You", "Tell Him", "I'm Leaving It All Up To You", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Set Me Free", "Leave Me Be", "Laugh At Me", and "Turn Around". On In Case You're In Love, Sonny & Cher are singing with this perfect sense of complement that few other vocal duos of the 60s could ever hope to match! They hardly need harmony at all – and could never have it, either – given all the "nose" in Sonny's style – but that separation is what really makes the charm of the pair – guy/girl, young/old, perfect/imperfect – coming together with a set of very groovy tunes, all arranged and produced by Sonny – and given a nice bounce in the backings by Harold Battiste! The set features their classic "The Beat Goes On" – plus lots more Sonny originals, including "Monday", "Podunk", "Little Man", "Living For You", and "Love Don't Come". 3CD package also features 17 more bonus tracks from Atco singles – both a-sides and b-sides – with tunes that include "Plastic Man", "Good Times", "Love Is Strange", "Baby Don't Go", "A Beautiful Story", "Have I Stayed Too Long", "It's The Little Things", "Hold You Tighter", "Good Combination", "You Gotta Have A Thing Of Your Own", "You're A Friend Of Mine", "Circus", and "It's The Little Things" – most originals by Sonny!

✨✧ CherBackstage/Golden Greats ... CD
Imperial/BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two 1968 albums by Cher – back to back on a single CD! First up is Backstage – a great little solo album from Cher – recorded during her overlooked run of non-Sonny Bono material for Imperial Records in the late 60s – a sublime stretch that really opens up her vocals with a surprisingly soulful vibe! That's definitely the case here, as Harold Battiste is helping Sonny out on production – adding some nicely deep currents to the music, as Cher takes on tunes by Bob Dylan, Miriam Makeba, Tim Hardin, and a surprisingly diverse array of artists – transforming every song in the process, and really making the music her own! Titles include a great sitar-laden version of "Masters Of War", plus "The Click Song", "Reason To Believe", "Do You Believe In Magic", "Take Me For A Little While", "A House Is Not A Home", and "Song Called Children". Golden Greats features loads of solo material that Cher recorded for Imperial Records without Sonny Bono on vocals – working alone, because the duo were contracted as a pair to Atlantic at the time! Sonny's still got a great hand in the music, though – producing most of it, and contributing a fair bit of original songs, next to material that Cher takes on from others, and really makes her own. Titles include "Hey Joe", "Alfie", "Sunny", "All I Really Want To Do", "I Feel Something In The Air", "You Better Sit Down Kids", "Come & Stay With Me", and the mega-hit "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)".

✨✧ Louis ArmstrongDisney Songs The Satchmo Way ... LP
Vista, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A very cool little record – even though it's a bit out of the ordinary for the Louis Armstrong catalog! The set was recorded during that 60s stretch when Louis was emerging as a hell of a charming singer – one who scored a few big pop hits, in a mode that he also invokes here – providing vocal renditions of some of the best Disney theme tunes from the postwar years! The mix of material is very nice – some obvious numbers by the Shermans, mixed with more surprising earlier tracks – and arrangements are by Maxwell Davies, who keeps things groovier than most talents in the Disney studios might have. Titles include "Bout Time", "Bare Necessities", "Ten Feet Off The Ground", "When You Wish Upon A Star", "Chim Chim Cher-ee", "Heigh Ho", Zip A Dee Doo Dah", and "Bibbidi Bobbidi Bo".

Sonny BonoInner Views ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sonny without Cher – and sounding pretty darn amazing! The album's a really unique solo effort from the man on the LA scene – and as you might guess from the title, one that's a lot more cerebral than the jangly pop he was better known for at the time – almost psychedelic at times, with some really "right on" lyrics that kind of take off where "The Beat Goes On" ended – offering up some commentary on the times, with tripped-out arrangements that definitely fit the flavor of the lyrics! The leadoff track – "I Just Sit There" – is a stunning twelve minutes long – and the whole album hangs together line a suite of similarly-themed tunes – with other titles that include "I Just Told My Girl To Go Away", "I Would Marry You Today", "My Best Friend's Girl Is Out Of Sight", and the ultra-groovy drug song "Pammie's On A Bummer".

Xavier CugatBang! Bang! ... LP
Decca, 1966. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A real turn to hipper territory for Xavier Cugat – a move away from more familiar Latin modes, and into a range of groovy sounds for the 60s! There's still a bit of the classic vamp we've come to know and love in Cugie – but the rhythms are leaner overall, and swing with some great mod elements that update his sound nicely. Instrumentation is heavy on percussion, but also features some electric guitar, organ, and other soul-based sounds – and while the album isn't exactly a Latin Soul set, it's certainly veering towards that territory. A number of tracks are covers, done in cool instrumental versions – and titles include "The Joker", "Concrete & Clay", "Call Me", "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'", "Charade", "La Playa", and "Bang Bang" (the Cher song, not the Joe Cuba one!)

Blind Uncle Gaspard & Delma LachneyOn The Waters Edge ... LP
Mississippi, Late 20s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Bluesy material, but all sung in French – and recorded in Louisiana during the 78rpm era by Blind Uncle Gaspard and Delma Lachney! The music here is all from vintage 78s, and is a definite precursor to later cajun sounds – but done at a level that's more acoustic blues styled overall – with guitar as the lead instrument alongside the vocal, and some occasional other work on violin. Titles include "La Danseuse", "Je Me Trouve Une Jolie Fille", "Cher Ami Ma Vie Est Runi", and "Avoyeles" by Delma Lachney – and "Sur La Borde De L'Eau", "Natchstoches", "Assi Dans La Fenetre De Ma Chambre", and "Mercredi Soir Passe" by Blind Uncle Gaspard.

VariousJohn Morales – The M&M Mixes Vol 4 – The Ultimate Collection – NYC Classic Underground Anthems & Previously Unreleased Remixes (4CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $24.99 34.99
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and the massive 4CD set features titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Lovergirl" by Teen Marie, "Standing Right Here" by Mannix, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Let The Music Play" by Barry White, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "All Night" by Katzuma, "Hi Tension" by Hi Tension, "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Eddie Kendricks, "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love", "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Walk Away From Love" by David Ruffin, "Life Goes On" by The Jones Girls, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Turn Me Up" by Keith Barrow, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Joy & Pain" by Maze, "Stay" by The Controllers, "Take Me Home" by Cher, and "Can't Live Without Your Love" by Tamiko Jones.

VariousMolam Thai Country Groove From Isan Vol 2 ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s/1980s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Hard to believe a genre as obscure as this would yield up enough material for another set – but this second volume's almost even more wonderful than the first! As before, the work here is all molam – a Laotian and Thai folk country music genre, but one with plenty of psychedelic touches too! The instrumentation often includes a lot of electric guitar – played in weird and wonderful ways that often get kind of echoey and exotic – usually with a sound that's older than the date of the material, and which ends up sounding even cooler because of the odd production used on the tunes. There's less folk or rural elements here than you'd expect – and most numbers come across like some of the non-dance tracks from Bollywood. 21 tracks in all including "Instrumental Lam Sing" by Kalasin, "Hak Beb Nang Thai" by Palatoni Songsim, "Lam Plern Chawiwan" by Chawiwan Damnoen, "Chun Cher" by P Promdan, "Raiteem Tarn" by Thong Thaithin Isan and lots more.

VariousPhil's Spectre – A Wall Of Soundalikes ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
That's not a typo in the title – the compilation's a collection of tracks that all bear the mark of Phil Spector – Spector's Spectres, if you will! It's a well known fact that Phil had a monumental impact on 60s rock, pop, and soul music – as his "wall of sound" production style forever transformed the sound of the single back in the sixties. And although there's been lots of compilations that focus on Phil's own work, this is the first one we've seen to showcase his proteges and contemporaries – a surprisingly wide range of studio talents who all picked up on Phil's tricks and twists! The tunes on the set include some great 60s soul and pop numbers, and a bunch of the tracks are reissued legally here for the first time. Plus, the set's got some wonderful liner notes – really taking you through the tracks, and explaining the connection to Spector and the overall sound of the music. Features production work by Nick DeCaro, Van McCoy, Jan Davis, Abner Spector, Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier, Brian Wilson, Sonny Bono, and Jack Nitszche – and titles that include "When You Walk In The Room" by Jackie DeShannon, "When The Boy's Happy" by The Four Pennies, "Hang On" by The Wall Of Sound, "Tremblin" by Gene Pitney, "A Little Love" by Alder Ray, "On The Spanish Side" by The Corsairs & Landy McNeil, "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" by The Beach Boys, "Just You" by Sonny & Cher, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "And That Reminds Me" by The Dolls, "You're So Fine" by Dorothy Berry, "Missing My Baby" by Clydie King, and "I Just Couldn't Say" by Lorraine & The Delights.

Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A totally great, totally groovy collection of work from the LA scene of the 60s – a set that masterfully blends all the garage, psych, and offbeat pop that was coming out of the City Of Angels during this heady period – often with modes that were really criss-crossing each other in style! You'll definitely recognize some of these names, but the greatness of the set comes in the way they put everything together – making musical matches we might not have expected, and creating a real sense of surprise when you hear two unlikely partners in the same space. Titles include "You Set The Scene (stereo)" by Love, "Gentle As It May Seem" by Iron Butterfly, "Dr Stone" by The Leaves, "Baby My Heart" by Bobby Fuller Four, "It's Gonna Rain" by Sonny & Cher, "Come Alive" by Things To Come, "For My Own" by The Guilloteens, "One Too Many Mornings" by The Association, "Baby Please Don't Go" by The Ballroom, "Rainbow Woman" by Lee Hazlewood, "The Rebel Kind" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Come Down" by The Common Cold, "Once Upon A Time" by Tim Buckley, and "Life Is A Dream" by Noel Harrison.

Cannonball AdderleyCountry Preacher – Live At Operation Breadbasket ... CD
Capitol, 1969. Used ... $5.99
A totally great set by Cannonball Adderley – one of his funkiest albums ever, recorded live at Operation Breadbasket under the supervision of Jesse Jackson, and a session in which the band is cooking a lot more than on some of their other albums from the time! The set grooves hard with some tight electric piano from Joe Zawinul – amazing snakey lines that not only set the tone for the whole record, but which really make for a strong evolution from the Mercy Mercy Mercy era of the group a few years before. Cannon's alto and soprano work are beautiful – a masterpiece of soul jazz expression – as is the cornet from brother Nat – and the group's completed by bassist Walter Booker and drummer Roy McCurdy. The album's a bucketful of great jazzy sample tunes – and tracks include "Walk Tall", "Country Preacher", "Hummin", and the extended "Afro-Spanish Omlet". CD

Curt Boettcher & FriendsLooking For The Sun ... LP
Columbia/High Moon, Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 23.99
A fantastic array of Sunshine Pop from the godlike hands of Curt Boettcher – all late 60s gems that were lost in the shuffle at Columbia Records, when Curt was working there as a producer! Boettcher's probably best known for his work in the groundbreaking group The Millenium, but despite the lack of success of that group's seminal debut on Columbia, the label also let Curt handle a fair bit of their more unusual artists at the time – bringing to Columbia what Brian Wilson was bringing to Capitol and other labels when really letting his genius unfurl in the studio! As with Wilson, Boettcher works in a way that's much more than a standard producer – really bringing his special sort of ear to the sessions, and often adding songwriting, arranging, and other touches to the tracks he handles. This special strand of work is presented here in great detail for the first time ever – a beautiful package that not only brings together rare productions by Curt, but also offers up very detailed track-by-track notes – which really illuminates the proceedings. Titles include "Did You Get Your Fun" by The Bootiques, "Enamorado" by Keith Colley, "I Didn't Ever Know" by Jonathan Moore "Thinking To Myself" by Action Unlimited, "The Best Thing" by Sandy, "Lorraine" by Ray Whitley, "You Were Near Me" by Cindy Malone, "Shadows & Reflexions" by Eddie Hodges, "Another Time" by Sagittarius, "Looking For The Sun" by Gordon Alexander, "Milk & Honey" by Summer's Children, and "My Hart Cries Out" by Action Unlimited.

Like some of the more famous sets of this type, there's a very live, spontaneous feel to the whole record – lots of tight instrumentation from the group – played with a style that's clearly an 80s transformation of funk – as the group work their way through endless riffs and references from a history of 20th Century soul, R&B, and jazz. The record's almost got the same non-stop feel of an old Go-Go gig – and titles include "Run Joe", "Stormy Monday", "Family Affair", "Do That Stuff", "Go-Go Drug Free" and "Be Bumpin Fresh". CD

Don CherryMu Second Part (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
BYG/Sunspots (Italy), 1969. Used Gatefold ... $11.99
Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles on this second part include "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon".

Don's in a spare trance-like mode here – working with one trio comprised of bassist Johnny Dyani and percussionist Okay Temiz; and another trio with Han Bennink on percussion and Moqui on tambura. Tracks from both sets are very long and stretched-out – a mixture percussion, trumpet, flute, piano, and occasional vocals, often done in a globally expansive style. Titles include "Si Ta Ra Ma", "Orient", "Eagle Eye", and "Togetherness". LP, Vinyl record album

The album features Cherry in the company of Swedish players like Bernt Rosengren, Agneta Arnstrom, and Bengt Berger – all of whom play in a very world jazz vibe, adding in lots of strange percussion, gongs, pianos, and other percussive instruments to the mix. Cherry even vocalizes a bit on one track, and he plays no trumpet at all on the recording – which shows an even greater commitment to exploring new modes of expression than you might expect.

✨✧ John Coltrane & Don CherryAvant-Garde ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A beautiful meeting of two major talents from the left end of jazz – recorded in the early 60's when both were working for Atlantic! Despite the "avant garde" title, this set is straighter than you'd expect – very much in the spirit of Coltrane's work for the label, but with perhaps some of the more angular styles that Cherry was laying down with Ornette Coleman at the time. The session has Coltrane joining Ornette's group of Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell – save for a few numbers that feature Percy Heath on bass instead of Haden. The set includes great readings of Ornette's "The Blessing", "The Invisible", and "Focus On Sanity", and Coltrane plays both soprano sax and tenor! LP, Vinyl record album

DJ VadimSound Catcher Extras ... CD
BBE (UK), 2007. Used ... $3.99
An addendum to DJ Vadim's Sound Catcher LP – featuring new tracks, remixes, live material and alternate versions – and effortlessly blending atmosheric hip hop beatcraft, tripped out reggae, and spacey soul as cohesively as the main album! DJ Vadim does a far better job with his Sound Catcher tracks in blending disparate elements than a few of the mainstream superstar producers did with their '07 LPs, and even his Extras are more appealing than the A-material of lesser producer/DJs! 16 tracks in all: "Raise Your Glass" feat Silent Knight, "Quand Vient La Nuit" feat Bunzen, Yarah Brave & Blu Rum 13, "I Can Never" feat Emo, "Countdown" feat Raasahan Ahmad, "Saskatoon" feat Youngblood Brass Band, "Got To Rock" (Griffi rmx) feat Zion, "Za Ba Day" feat Sena and more.

Two gospel gems – back to back on a single 45! "I'm Getting Richer" is this beautiful tune that has a spare vamping rhythm, peppered with just the right use of jazzy organ – all to set the tone for a superbly soulful lead vocal from Clara Ward! The great Jessy Dixon is on the flip – delivering lead vocals with his singer on a fantastic take on "Wade In The Water" – a tune you might know from secular readings, but which always sounds better in more spiritual territory! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Incredible! Ferrante & Teicher play the piano like nobody ever else had – save for perhaps John Cage! The duo do a heck of a lot of work inside the piano – plucking the strings, hitting them like vibes, and sticking in all of these weird bits to create a "prepared piano" sound that far surpasses the ideas that even Cage came up with! And through all of this, they always manage a hi-fi swing – working the piano to come up with amazing tracks that sound more electronic than acoustic, a perfect fit for the space-age cover of the album!

Toby FichelscherBusting The Bongos ... CD
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. Used ... $10.99
Wonderful lost work from Toby Fichelscher – a German bongo player with a hell of a great ear for an unusual groove – strongly demonstrated here in a set of previously-unreleased recordings! Toby draws plenty from American percussionists of the 50s – and works here in a modern jazz setting that uses his percussion to bring sharp sounds to a lineup that includes vibes, alto sax, guitar, and tenor – often used in these cool, chromatic ways that work wonderfully alongside the rhythms! Fichelscher also sings and scats a bit at a few points – mixing vocals with his percussion in a way that reminds us of Fats Sadi, a European contemporary who had a similarly great ear for mixing modes. Most tracks here are instrumental, but even those have as much charm as the vocal numbers – and titles include "The Cool Scene", "My First Blues", "Fashion Trip", "Shadows", "With Cash Like This", and "On Chano's Track".

Clare FischerManteca! ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of our favorite albums ever from the great Clare Fischer – and one of the first to really show his special talents at their best! The sound here is a wonderful blend of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes – and in addition to piano, Clare plays plenty of organ on the date – which bristles with this cool, clear sound amidst larger backdrops that have a very driving feel! There's lots of percussive energy at the bottom of the bigger group tracks – thanks to work from Latin percussionists Carlos Vidal, Cuco Martinez, Chino Valdes, and Rudy Calzado – and some of the other cuts feature a smaller group, but still with lots of great percussion! Clare's organ has this feel that's very different than the usual Hammond jazz style – and really sounds great throughout – on a batch of tracks that includes a key reading of his classic "Morning" – plus the cuts "Manteca", "Favela", "Afro Blue", "Dulzura", and "Negrita".

Gritness AcoustronicsMahakali – The Music Of Don Cherry ... CD
Komos (France), 2019. New Copy ... $12.99
A really different take on the music of Don Cherry – but one that we're guessing Don would have really approved of himself! The "acoustronics" in the group's name slightly gives away the vibe – as there's definitely acoustic elements, but also a fair bit of electronics – of the sort that Cherry was embracing more in the mid 80s, as part of his continuing musical journey from jazz, to global realms, to territory that might resonate more with the sound of the streets! There's no trumpet at all on the record, but Vincent Thekal plays tenor and soprano, to hold on to a jazz component – amidst lots of drum machine and keyboard parts from leader Gary Gritness, plus more from Olivier Portal – both musicians who somehow manage to evoke the global currents of earlier Don Cherry music, but in a very different way. Titles include "Mahakali", "Karmapa Chenno", "Universal Mother", "I Walk", "Malkauns", and "Degi Degi". CD

A delightfully offbeat soundtrack from the glory days of the biker film – put together by Harley Hatcher, but featuring performances by a whole host of different artists! Hatcher approaches the record with the same sort of vibe that Mike Curb was using for similar projects – working with a bunch of short vocal numbers, most of which are performed by lesser-known groups, in styles that are almost a Sunshine Pop take on biker rock! The big star here is Bill Medley – who sings "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" – and other titles include "The Hard Ride" and "Victorville Blues" by The Sounds Of Harley; "Shannon's Hook Shop" and "Let The Music Play" by Bluewater; "I Came A Long Way To Be With You" and "Carry Me Home" by Thelma Camacho; and "Fallin In Love with Baby" by Junction.

Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson & Bobby HutchersonKeystone Bop Vol 1 – Sunday Night ... CD
Prestige, 1981. Used ... $18.99
Keystone bop indeed – a smoking little set from Freddie Hubbard, recorded during his great back-to-basics years of the early 80s! The tracks here are all quite long, and informed by a strong sense of hardbop – but they also open up with some sharper, more modern moments at times – of the sort that keenly reflect Freddie's best roots during his early years at Blue Note. The other players here are all quite strong – especially well-matched for the energy of such a record – with Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Joe Henderson on tenor, plus rhythm from Billy Childs on piano, Larry Klein on bass, and Steve Houghton on drums. The CD presents all tracks in long, unedited takes – and this Sunday Night volume features 5 tracks that include "Birdlike", "The Littlest One Of All", "The Intrepid Fox", "Sky Dive", and "Body & Soul".

Al Hudson & the Soul PartnersEspecially For You/Cherish (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Expansion (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $15.99
Two fantastic early albums by Al Hudson – working here with his initial group, The Soul Partners! First up is Especially For You – a record that's kind of a first chapter to all the excellent work by One Way to come – even though Al's not using that group name at this time! The record's got this cool, classy vibe – an update of an earlier Detroit soul mode, and one that maybe followed that city's shift a few years later than 70s soul changes in Philly during the decade – and handled with a similar blend of groovers and mellow cuts! The vibe is similar to the great shift The Dramatics were making on ABC Records at the time – and Al and the group work here with production by Al Perkins and arrangements by Jimmy Roach. Titles include "Baby Let Me Love You", "I Got A Notion You Got The Motion", "Real Love", "You're So Wonderful", and "Trying To Prove My Love". Cherish is a funky soul classic from Al Hudson and the Soul Partners – a second full length set, and one that really has Hudson finding his groove! The rhythms are funkier than before – thanks to strong work on bass from Kevin McCord, who also joins Al a bit on vocals – in a mode that still continues the group's strong work on midtempo numbers, but also maybe answers a 70s disco wave with more of a Detroit funk overall! Great work from the group that would later turn into One Way – with titles that include "Tripped, Slipped, Stumbled, & Fell", "If You Get Caught", "If You Feel Like Dancing", and "I Like Everything About You". CD also features bonus tracks – "Feelings (7" version)" and "If You Feel Like Dancin (12" version)". CD

The album's a real gem from his Landmark Records years – that great back-to-basics point when Bobby was almost doing more by doing less – especially in a record with understated brilliance like this. The group's a warmly sensitive one – with Mulgrew Miller on piano, John Heard on bass, Airto on percussion, and Billy Higgins on drums – a perfect rhythmic accompaniment for Hutcherson's hip vibes.

An incredible record from Bobby Hutcherson – easily one of his best of the 80s, and with some great touches that recall his best 70s work! The album title might fool you into thinking that Bobby's working in Charlier Parker territory here – but he's not, and is instead grooving in a mellow and soulful west coast mode – working with a totally great group that includes Ralph Moore on tenor and soprano sax, Buddy Montgomery on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The whole album's a magical picture of tone, color, and light – but the especially standout track is "Sierra" – a totally killer number that has these arch angles and edges that rival the best sounds heard on Hutcherson's Montara album!

One of the most sophisticated albums that Bobby Hutcherson recorded with reedman Harold Land – a very hip session that features the arrangements of piano player Todd Cochran – also known as Bayete for a pair of early 70s albums on Prestige! The sound here is more farther-reaching than before for the team of Hutcherson and Land – a deepening of the soulful spirits first cooked up on their earlier collaborations, stretched out to farther-reaching territory in the hands of Cochran's arrangements and compositions. The group's got a full sound too – with trumpet and flugelhorn from Oscar Brashear, trombone from George Bohannon, and added reeds from players who include Ernie Watts, Fred Jackson, and Charles Owens. Harold Land plays tenor and flute, Hutcherson vibes and marimba, and Cochran is on acoustic piano throughout – but the record also features some electric keys from William Henderson. Titles include the 3 part suite "At The Source", plus "Many Thousands Gone", "Clockwork Of The Spirits", and "Mtume". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most wonderful 70s albums from Bobby Hutcherson – and one of the most deeply spiritual, too! As with others in Blue Note's Montreux series, the tracks are long and very open – with a different flavor than the artists' studio work. Hutcherson works with a hip small group that includes excellent trumpet from Woody Shaw, piano from Hotep Cecil Bernard, bass from Ray Drummond, and drums from Larry Hancock – all snaking out beautifully on these long, spiritual tunes – very much shaped by Woody's presence. Titles include a great take on Shaw's classic track "The Moontrane", as well as "Song Of Songs". Hutcherson's own "Anton's Bail" rounds up the set, and the whole thing's a beautiful batch of soaring modal grooves, caught live before a very enthusiastic audience! CD

Vibes and orchestrations – a combination that makes for one of the coolest Bobby Hutcherson albums of the 70s – a really magical set that expands the sound of Bobby's work in ways we wouldn't have expected! The style is similar to that used with Grant Green and Lou Donaldson at the time on Blue Note – a style that's clearly trying for the more sophisticated sounds of CTI, and which beautifully balances the modes of presentation – so that there's still plenty of soulful moments and slyly funky bits alongside the strings and woodwinds in the orchestrations – proof that a record like this can be really brilliant if scored properly! Some moments get a bit modern and dark – almost in a William S Fischer kind of way – and titles include the great track "Rain Every Thursday", which begins with an excellent break – plus "The Folks Who Live On The Hill", "Sophisticated Ladies", "When You're Near", "Shirl", and "Lush Life".

Genius, pure genius! This album's possibly the most perfectly realized set from the team of Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Harold Land on reeds – a pair who work here with an electric bass player and a bit of electric piano (the latter from Joe Sample) – hitting territory that's slightly funky, but which is also still touched by the modal spiritualism of some of their earlier work together! The album has an approach that we've not heard on other sides from the time – in that it takes its time to build the grooves up slowly, layering element over element as the songs unfurl, crafting some killer numbers that make the album incredibly strong as a whole. Includes the classics "Ummh" and "Goin' Down South", which have been made famous over the years, thanks to the magic of sampling technology – plus the tracks "Jazz", "Night In Barcelona", and "Procession".

Blue Note (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99
The sticks are up, and Bobby Hutcherson is at the top of his game – hitting a whole new groove here in this sublime session of modal numbers for Blue Note – a slightly warmer set than his more modern albums of the "new thing" years, and a great indication of the directions he'd take in the 70s! Bobby's vibes are set up wonderfully here in a quintet that includes Joe Henderson on tenor sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all players who bring key elements to the groove. Tyner's got an obvious ear for the modal rhythms that Hutcherson's heading for; Higgins' drum work is freely lyrical in all the best ways; and Henderson's horn sharpens the edges of the tunes a bit, bringing in some nice darker sounds. The kickoff track is an amazing modal reading of Ornette's "Una Muy Bonita", and the rest tracks are all Hutcherson originals, including "Summer Nights", "8/4 Beat", "Black Circle", "Verse", and "Blues Mind Matter".

But this time around, there's also lots of sweet keyboards from Larry Nash – who plays Fender Rhodes with some warmer elements that unlock a great mellow side of Hutcherson's playing – almost giving the record a Roy Ayers vibe at times!

A very interesting batch of tracks – one tune apiece by each of the artists named in the title, recorded between the years 1970 and 1973 at the Festival Ljublijana, in Yugoslavia. Bill Evans performs a long, and straight reading of Miles Davis' "Nardis" with a trio that includes Eddie Gomez on bass and Tony Oxly on drums; Karin Krog sings a spare version of "Round Midnight", with only the bass of Arild Andersen for accompaniment; and Archie Shepp blows freely on a version of Grachan Moncur III's "Sonny's Back", in a group with Dave Burrell, Don Garrett, and Muhammad Ali. Perhaps the most striking track, though, is "The Creators" by Bobby Hutcherson – played with his group that included Harold Land and Hal Galper, and performed in an 18 minute reading that builds beautifully, into the dancing soul jazz sound that was Hutcherson's best contribution to jazz at the time!

Jesse JacksonCountry Preacher – I Am Somebody ... LP
Respect, 1969. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
A classic speech by Jesse Jackson – one that became quite a hit for Stax's Respect subsidiary, and which was one of the better selling albums of its type in the early 70s. The album was recorded back in the days before Jesse had become a bit of a cliche, when he appeared to be emerging as the heir to Martin Luther King's crown, with possibly as much potential for social change and political motivation. The record contains Jesse's famous "I Am Somebody" speech – which included the title chant that would be taken up often in the 70s, even on funky records, as well as into the 80s and 90s, when it was frequently sampled by hip hoppers. LP, Vinyl record album

Michel LegrandLes Parapluies De Cherbourg/Umbrellas Of Cherbourg (US version) ... LP
Philips, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Fantastic! This is the US release of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that later became worldwide hits – like "I Will Wait For You" and "Watch What Happens" – but in this version, the songs are just themes in the huge pastiche of dialogue and narrative, and they lurk behind the score in a beautiful way. This is one of our favorite all-time soundtracks, and this US version has a heavy cardboard gatefold sleeve, with a book in the middle that has lines from the film, and very nice pictures of Catherine Deneuve! LP, Vinyl record album
(US mono pressing, in the extravagant gatefold cover, with booklet. Cover has light wear.)

Los HacherosPilon ... CD
Los Hacheros, 2012. Used ... $8.99
A contemporary Latin combo, but one with a really unique feel as well – a mix of 60s charanga modes, 50s Cuban roots, and some definite modern phrasing! The group has a really wonderful blend of flute, violin, trombone, tres, and percussion – and congolero Hector "Papote" Jimenez sings lead vocals on the set, but often seems more than willing to step back and let the instruments themselves provide plenty of voice! Production is nice and raw – with an echoey quality you don't always get in recent records of this nature – and titles include "Convergencia", "Pilon", "Cha Cha Herzilia", "Mami Me Gusto", "Desastre", and "Azucar".

Liberty, 1956. Very Good ... $19.99
A bit different than the early R&B work of Nellie Lutcher, but great too – a unified album of jazzy material, cut with backings by the great Russ Garcia!

Cheryl LynnGot To Be Real – The Columbia Anthology ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDS ... $15.99
A fantastic selection of work from Cheryl Lynn – a singer who came around in the later years of disco, then helped find a whole new groove for female soul once the 80s began! Cheryl's always been a cut above – a singer with an incredible voice, and one who's also able to sound her best in a number of different modes – including an increasing skill with mellow and midtempo cuts that only grew as her career at Columbia Records moved on, making the singer one of the fullest, freshest of her generation in mainstream soul. This great 2CD set brings together most of Cheryl's best moments from the Columbia years – album cuts, special singles, and even key collaborations with Luther Vandross, Hubert Laws, and her initial appearance on a Toto track too. Titles include "All My Lovin", "Star Love", "Preppie (12" version)", "If You'll Be True To Me", "In The Night", "Shake It Up Tonight", "Keep It Hot", "You Saved My Day (special version)", "Come In From The Rain", "In Love (7" mix)", "Encore (dance version)", "Free", "Fidelity (special version)", "Goodbye For Now", "I Just Wanna Be Your Fantasy", "Instant Love", "Look Before You Leap", "Georgy Porgy", "If This World Were Mine", "At Last You're Mine", "Loafin", "Fade To Black", "Change The Channel", and "You're The One" – plus the all-time classic "To Be Real".

Cheryl LynnPreppie ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Very Good ... $2.99
Hard to believe that a preppie look could ever be associated with a soul singer, but by the time of this 1983, the preppie craze had spread so much that it actually provided Cheryl Lynn a nice way to update her style! There's nothing preppie about the music, though – and the record's a great batch of cuts that show how much Cheryl influenced the soul sound of the early 80s, especially at a time when Columbia was putting out so many strong R&B acts – stepping forth with a tight, mature groove that's totally wonderful – definitely a standard-setting sound that so many other female singers tried to match! Includes the cuts "Encore", "Fool A Fool", "Fix It", "Change The Channel", "Preppie", and "Life's Too Short". LP, Vinyl record album

James MoodyTeachers ... LP
Perception, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
We've always been enormous fans of this LP, which features Moody backed by The Albert, a "progressive" funk/rock group. This Perception release is a righteous concept LP dedicated to "revolution" and "change". And more importantly, there is indeed some totally righteous playing here, with the standout groovers being "Unchained" and "The Teachers". Very cool die-cut gatefold, suitable for framing.

Scherrie PayneIncredible ... LP
Everland (Austria), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A late solo set from ex-Supreme Scherrie Payne, and nicely different than the 70s work she did after leaving that famous group! The set's got this great bubbling bounce – part 80s soul, part 80s club – and the record's put together by a host of top-shelf talents – from producer Wayne Henderson at the helm, through a lineup that includes keyboards from Phillip Ingram and guitars from Craig T Cooper. Ingram also adds a bit of guest vocals to the record, bringing the whole thing into a mode that echoes some of the more familiar R&B styles of the time – while still keeping the indie edge of the set. Titles include "Incredible", "Testify", "Touch Me Up", "Right Stuff", "On & On", "Hot Flash", and "Get Closer". LP, Vinyl record album

Poor Righteous TeachersHoly Intellect ... LP

The classic debut of Poor Righteous Teachers – a creative benchmark for the Five Percenter movement – and one best records to come from the dawn of the 90s hip hop scene! Tight group rap of the highest dawn of caliber – with a distinct approach, courtesy of leader and lyricist Wise Intelligent. He is both! Genuine intellect on display, but it's playful and accessible, too, with timeless blueprint production all the way. Includes "Rock Dis Funky Joint", "Time To Say Peace", "Can I Start This?", "Butt Naked Booty Bless", "Shakiyla", "Strictly Ghetto", "Holy Trinity", "Style Dropped/Lesson Taught", "Word From The Wise", "Poor Righteous Teachers" and more.

PreachermanUniversal Philosophy – Preacherman Plays TJ Hustler's Greatest Hits ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2018. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
Wild work from one of the more compelling artists of the Cali soul scene – an Oakland singer/keyboardist who issued a rare album under the name of TJ Hustler in 1979, then kept on making his own sounds away from the mainstream! The vibe here is very very 80s underground – lots of Casio-styled keyboards, used with spare drum programs – and topped with lyrics that are quite far from any mainstream understanding of soul – clearly marking Preacherman as his own sort of singer right from the start. The collection is a perfect fit for the Luaka Bop style of finding truly unique artists and giving them the spotlight they deserve – and titles include "Feel It", "Out Of This World", "Tell Me Why", "That's Good", "Age Of Individualism", and the 18 minute long "Up & Down". CD also features the 15 minute "The Wrong Way". CD
