ManhattansManhattans Sing For You & Yours – Golden Carnival Classics Part 2 (Collectables pressing) ... LP
Carnival/Collectables, 1968. Sealed ... $9.99
A heck of a great 60s soul album – one that we'd rank right up there with the best by the Impressions from the time – perfectly put together without a bit of filler! The set's the second full length set by The Manhattans – one of the few groups of their time who could really pull off such an all-original set without a lot of outside help. The tracks are all wonderfully fresh – and run from beautiful mellow harmony numbers to some harder, more fast-stomping upbeat dancefloor tunes! Titles include "I Wanna Be", "I Call It Love", "Sweet Little Girl", "I Betcha", "All I Need Is Your Love", "It's That Time Of Year", and "For The Very First Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 90s issue, still sealed, with some light wear and faded marker.)

VariousFor Connoisseurs Only – Kent/Modern Soul Collectables ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A sweet little dip into the catalog of the LA-based Kent/Modern label – the legendary imprint that started in the R&B years, and stayed strong in the soul generation – providing inspiration and a name for the Kent branch of UK-based Ace records, home to some of the best reissues in the Dusty Groove catalog! And while Kent issued some great material back in the day, they also recorded a fair bit of work that never hit the pressing plants – some of which is on this collection, which mixes unreleased numbers with rare singles from back in the day! The set features 28 sublime numbers – a mixture of sweet soul, hard soul, group harmony, and a bit of funk – rare tunes all of them, most never issued on any full length albums. Titles include "I Got Love" by The Other Brothers, "I've Got To Win Your Love For Me" by The Sims Twins, "Baby You're Alive" by The Styles, "The Hunch" by Gene Taylor, "Come Back Baby" by Tami Young, "I'm Gonna Be Sweeter" by Clay Hammond, "You've Got It" by Johnny Williams, "Gimme Some Of Your Lovin" by Arthur Adams, "I Dig It The Most" by Jackie Day, "Down In The City" by The Marvellos, "Make A Little Love" by Lowell Fulsom, "New Lease On Life" by The Universals, "The Sun Don't Shine Every Day" by The Saints, and "That's A Rockin Good Way" by Vernon & Jewel.

✨✧ VariousFor Connoisseurs Only Vol 3 – Kent/Modern Soul Collectables ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
No need to be a connoisseur to enjoy this set – because the tunes here are all plenty darn groovy – rare soul numbers with an instant appeal to our ears, thanks to their freshness and the quality of the work! The package features rare singles and a bunch of previously unissued tracks from the vaults of the Kent/Modern labels – most recorded at the end of the 60s, in a range of soulful styles! Some numbers have a sweeter feel, but many echo the headier sounds of the times – bringing in some funkier or psychedelic soul influences, even when the themes might be a bit more conventional, or the grooves a bit more mellow. As always with Kent, the package features loads of notes on the music – enough to help even a novice become a connoisseur after a few listenings – and the CD features 24 titles that include "Cut Me Loose" by Gene Taylor, "Beverly" by Billy Watkins, "If I'd Lose You" by Jackie Day, "That Righteous Feeling" by Marvin Phillips & The Spinners, "My Name Is Misery" by Al King, "I've Gotta Get You Back" by Mary Love, "I'm Guilty" by Vernon Garrett, "Can't Count The Days" by Jeb Stuart, "Baby Baby Baby" by Leon Peterson, "The Ta Ta Song" by Little Henry & The Shamrocks, and "It's OK" by Esther Williams.

Chris BartleySweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven ... CD
Collectables, 1967. Used ... $6.99
A sweet soul classic from late 60s Philly – the one and only album recorded by vocalist Chris Bartley – arranged and produced by Van McCoy! The style's really great – with a host of original tunes by Van that follow nicely in the style of Chris' hit title cut, and which show him off to be quite a well-versed singer. We're not sure why he never made it bigger – but possibly he was so eclipsed by the talents of Van it was hard to get out on his own! Includes the hit title cut – "Sweetest Thing This Side Of Heaven" – plus "Gotta Tell Somebody", "For You", "Sittin Pretty", "Hooked On You", "I'll Be Loving You", and "Sugar Baby". CD

Black IvoryDon't Turn Around ... CD
Collectables, 1972. Used ... $9.99
Although titled after one of their early albums, this "golden classics edition" features 13 cuts from different releases that Black Ivory did for the Today label in the early 70s. Nearly all tracks feature heavenly east coast soul production from the great Patrick Adams, and the tracks on the CD focus most strongly on the group's ballad/harmony style, instead of the uptempo material that became more dominant in their mid 70's recordings. This is classic old school harmony material, and the set list is a winner all the way through, with titles like "Time Is Love", "You & I", "Our Future", "No If's And's Or But's", "It's Time To Say Goodbye", and "She Said She's Leaving". Sweeeeeeet sweeeeeeet soul! CD

Collectables, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Heavenly soul by one of the best voices to come out of the New York Uptown Soul scene of the 60s! Maxine's got an amazing style that never stops being soulful, yet which also reaches new levels of sophistication, not often heard in other 60s soul divas.

Charlie ByrdBamba-Samba Bossa Nova ... CD
Everest/Collectables, 1959. Used ... $4.99
A rare bit of early bossa jazz from the US – an obscure 1959 session by Charlie Byrd, and one that predates most of his more famous work on Riverside, Columbia, and Verve! The session's a bit different than most of Charlie's lighter bossa recordings – in that it features his acoustic guitar work over bigger band backings from Woody Herman – done in modes that borrow a sense of sound and space from bossa nova, but which also share plenty of modern jazz touches as well. Arrangers for the record are Sid Feller and Ralph Burns – the latter of whom does a tremendous job with his 4-part "Summer Sequence" – a tone-based Kenton-esque suite that's a real standout part of the record, even if it's not as bossa-styled as some of the other work. Other tunes are all originals by Charlie – and include "Bamba Samba", "Love Song Ballad", "Prelude A Cha Cha", and "Original #2". CD

Ella FitzgeraldThings Ain't What They Used To Be (And You Better Believe It) ... CD
Reprise/Collectables, 1971. Used ... $8.99
Ella gets groovy – and we love it! This album's one of a rare few that has Ella Fitzgerald breaking the mode of her more traditional vocal sessions – a surprising groover that features Gerald Wilson backing Ella with a great blend of soul, jazz, and bossa styles! By the time of the session, Wilson had honed his craft on a strong run of 60s albums for Pacific Jazz – creating a trademark groove that pushes all instruments in the group tightly together, while allowing just the right breakout modes for soloists like Dennis Budimir or Harold Land to spice things up alongside Ella's vocals. Nearly every track on the album has a nice little bounce at the bottom, and even older chestnuts are strongly transformed into a much later, groovier sound for the set. Titles include "Sunny", "Mas Que Nada", "Man & A Woman", "Manteca", "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", and "Days Of Wine & Roses". CD

A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles".

Jimmy Giuffre/Mabel MercerTravelin Light/Merely Marvelous ... CD
Collectables, 1958/1960. Used ... $9.99
For some odd reason, the Collectables label chose to release albums by two different artists on one CD. We should be mad at them for that, but we can't get that angry, since we're extremely happy to have this Jimmy Giuffre album back in print again! Travelin' Light is one of Giuffre's best albums of all time, and the record is a perfect realization of his piano-less/bass-less trio style. The group is simply Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Jim Hall on guitar, and Giuffre on reeds – and the sound is amazing! Notes hang in mid-air, slowly sliding around one another, flying freely from the players, yet still managing to swing in a beautiful way. The titles are a mix of standards and originals – but all tracks sound completely unique, with a sound unlike anything else we can describe. Cuts include "Swamp People", "Lonely Time", "Green Country", and "Travelin Light". The Mabel Mercer album? Consider it a bonus! CD

✨✧ Chico HamiltonWith Strings Attached ... CD
Warner/Collectables, 1959. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no longer their cellist, but still a key force here) – and the approach is a great expansion on the earlier styles that Chico forged for Pacific Jazz. The strings here are never sleepy, and instead have a dark and modern feel overall – similar to Ralph Burns' best work of the time, but a bit more restrained – and Eric Dolphy's reed work really keeps things interesting, with sharp-edged notes give most of the tracks a fair bit of depth. Titles include "Modes", "Strange", "Don's Delight", "Andante", "Fair Weather", "Something To Live For", and "Pottsville USA". CD

Dreamy harmony jazz from the great Hi-Los – one of the hippest groups of the 50s, with a sweet quartet approach similar to The Four Freshmen, and which had a huge effect on pop in the 60s! The tunes on the set feature the group working with either Frank Comstock or Marty Paich – in an amazing style that turns just about any song into a unique little affair, voices sliding and colliding, running together with incredible richness that really opens up the tunes. Titles include "Lady In Red", "Some Minor Changes", "Fascinating Rhythm", "Small Fry", "My Sugar Is So Refined", "I Married An Angel", and "Love Walked In". CD

Peter NeroFor The Nero-Minded/ Young & Warm & Wonderful ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1962. Used ... $9.99
2 wonderful albums from pianist Peter Nero – a real maestro of the keys, but also a player who worked in a lean and stripped-down style that was never cloying or overly sentimental, like some of the mood music pianists of the 50s! The albums both have a style that's dramatic one moment, intimate the other – and always graced by Nero's wonderful work on the piano – jazzy touches underneath, a strong sense of rhythm, and an ability to paint in broad colors that gives the albums an incredibly rich sound. Titles include "Moon River", "Something's Coming", "Yesterdays", "Too Late Now", "Warm", "Just Squeeze Me", "Secret Love", and "Wonderful You". CD

Helen O'ConnellHere's Helen/Green Eyes ... CD
Collectables, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
Two great albums on one CD. First up is Here's Helen – great later work by singer Helen O'Connell – a vocalist best known for her classic early 40s recordings with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, but who sounds pretty darn great at this point in her career! The style is much different than Helen's older work – a mix of jazz and swing that comes across in light, bubbly tones, and with a fresher sound than her work in the 40s. Arrangements are by Marion Evans, and titles include "You Showed Me The Way", "I Cried For You", "Bye Bye Blues", "Who Cares", and "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone". Also included is Green Eyes – another beautiful set of vocal work from the late 50s! The style's quite different than Helen's older recordings – despite the reference of her big hit in the title – as the backings from Marion Evans bring a slightly more modern, slightly more sophisticated approach overall – not just jazzy swing, but some inventive use of guitar, strings, and other elements to give O'Connell's voice a nicely mature setting. Helen's best familiar elements still shine through nicely, and titles include "Star Eyes", "Not Mine", "Green Eyes", "Yours", "All Of Me", "Jim", "Amapola", "Time Was", and "Brazil". CD

Johnny OtisCapitol Years ... CD
Capitol/Collectables, 1950s. Used ... $9.99
During his long musical career, Johnny Otis recorded for more labels than most folks have pants – but his 50s work at Capitol (and the related Dig label) remains some of his best, and it's very nicely collected on this 24 track set! The Capitol years gave Johnny some polish – a good thing, because it helped him hone his songwriting ideas, tighten up the playing, and get a bit more jump in his grooves. The result was a sound that was a perfect blend of the bourgeoning LA R&B scene and the classic American approach to songsmithery that was Capitol's best strength during the 50s. Titles include "Voodoo Woman", "Vine Street Swing", "Three Girls Named Molly", "Castin My Spell", "Telephone Baby", "Crazy Country Hop", "Cold Turkey", "I'm With You", and the classic "Willie & The Hand Jive".

One of the grooviest albums ever by Attila Zoller – an oft-overlooked Hungarian guitar player who only issued a few records here in the US! The record doesn't exactly have a funk sound, but it does have a cool soulful groove – one with an open ended sound that's similar to other titles on Herbie Mann's Embryo subsidiary of Atlantic – a great mix of modes that really lets Attila open up! Herbie Hancock's on electric piano, and Sonny Brown is on drums. The cuts are shortish, with more tightness than Zoller's other albums from the time – and a nice tone that sounds great next to Herbie's keyboards. Includes the titles "Horns", "Wild Wild Wes", "At Twilight", and "Sweet Hustler". CD

✨✧ Elvin JonesAnd Then Again/Midnight Walk ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1965/1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 rare albums by Elvin Jones – both excellent, and both among some of his best work ever as a leader! And Then Again is a very nice session from the mid 60's that features arrangements by Melba Liston. Jones brings in some excellent accompaniment from brothers Thad and Hank, who show their modernist tendencies more strongly here than in other work from the time – and he's also joined by Charles Davis, Don Friedman, and Frank Wess. Most of the tracks on the album – such as "Azan", "Elvin Elpus", and "All Deliberate Speed" – are tightly snapping Melba Liston arrangements with a good mix of bop and modernist ideas, but one track – "And Then Again" – is a very nice improvised piece by the group. Midnight Walk has Elvin Jones playing with Dollar Brand on piano on a number of cuts, and with a sound that's a lot more like some of Brand's Afro-grooves than it is like some of Jones' other straight jazz albums. The highlight here is "Midnight Walk", but there's loads of other originals – including many written by Thad Jones, who's also on the set, and who plays in a surprisingly open-ended way that differs greatly from his 50's Blue Note recordings. Other titles include "H.M on F.M", "The Juggler", "All Of Us", and "Cross Purpose". CD
