Don DrummondDon Cosmic ... CD
Studio One, Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
An incredible collection of work from one of the coolest musicians on the Jamaican scene in the 60s – the legendary Don Drummond – an artist who was schooled in jazz trombone, then went on to use the instrument as a surprisingly powerful force in ska, rocksteady, and reggae! This collection focuses on Don's performances for Studio One – and includes a number of tracks that were only ever issued as 45s, and which make their first-ever appearance here on album – along with a few classics, and some other unreleased takes too! Don's musicianship is superb – and he uses the trombone in a way that has the powerful punch of a trumpet, but is also tied quite strongly to the basslines in the rhythms too – an approach that was the epitome of cool back in the day. Titles include "Reload", "The Shock", "Surplus", "Coolie Boy", "Roll On Sweet Don", "The Rocket", "Rain Or Shine", "Scrap Iron", "Grooving With The Beat", "Serenade In Sound", "Green Island", "Far East", "Last Call", and "Jet Stream".

VariousCoxsone's Music – First Recordings Of Sir Coxsone The Downbeat 1960 to 1963 – Record B ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
An incredible set of music – the roots of so many sounds to come in Jamaica, all pulled from the early pre-Studio One recordings of the legendary Clement Dodd! The music here is much more strongly tied to American styles – and in fact, some cuts could easily pass for soul and R&B – but other cuts show a very strong island influence early on, with roots of some other West Indian sounds filtering down to groove that's already coalescing into the classic sound of Kingston! We've loved Dodd's productions for many years – but this set is still a real ear-opener for us, given the range of material that we'd never heard before – and the richly detailed notes from Soul Jazz, which tell the tale of the brilliant birth of Jamaican music that would shape the rest of the world for generations to come. Part 2 of the vinyl set includes the titles "Independent Blues" by Basil Gabbidon, "Sugar Plum" by Owen & Willie, "Just Cool" by Roland Alphonso & Carol McLaughlin, "I Do" by Neville Esson, "Sit & Cry" by Owen & Millie, "Grooving With The Beat" by Cecil Lloyd, "That Man Is Back" by Don Drummond & The City Slickers, "Salt Lane Shuffle" by Clue J & His Blues Busters, "Over The River" by Jiving Juniors, and "Rock A Man Soul" by The Mellow Cats, Count Ossie, and The Warrickas. 22 tracks in all!

VariousJazz In Jamaica – The Coolest Cats From The Alpha Boy's School ... LP
Honey Pie, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Jazz in Jamaica, and a whole lot more – as the set brings together some key moments when the music was really shifting down in Kingston – still years before ska, rocksteady, and reggae, but with some definite differences in the way things come across! The Alpha Boy's School is a reference to the background of some of the key players – names that blossomed even more strongly in later years of Jamaican recording, with some who even achieved great fame recording over in the UK and Europe as well. But these are the giants at the start of their career – stepping out on some really great takes on more familiar jazz standards, but with a nicely inventive approach – as you'll hear on tunes that include "I'll Remember April" and "St Thomas" from Cecil Lloyd, "I Love Paris" by Lennie Hibbert, "Exodus" by Ernest Ranglin, "Rhythm" by Wilton Gaynair, "It Happnes" by The Workshop with Don Drummond, "Old Devil Moon" by Lance Hayward with Totlyn Jackson, "Let's Fall In Love" by Eric Grant, and "The Answer" by The Workshop with Tommy McCook.

VariousStudio One Ska Fire (5 x 7 inch single set) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 5 x 7 inch set ... $46.99
A tasty set of ten cooking cuts from the early years of Studio One – done at a time when the label was cutting some of the most soul-drenched music on the Jamaican scene – work that's way better than so much later music that came to be associated with the word "ska"! Here, you'll find plenty of elements of rocksteady and early reggae too – as the box bubbles along with cuts that include "Open Up" by Lee Perry, "Shammy Back" by The Regals, "Diamond Baby" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "Don D Special" by Don Drummond, "A Man Who Knows" by Toots & The Maytals, "Rude Boy" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "It's Alright" by Derrick Morgan, "The Mill Man" by Jackie Opel, "Something Special" by The Skatalites, and "I Am Free" by The Ethiopians. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ TennorsDo The Reggay Dance ... LP
Sutro Park, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heavy helping of work from this excellent Jamaican trio – one of the best soulful groups of the rocksteady years, stepping out here in a mode that's similar to early material from The Wailers! The Tennors really shine here in a great blend of harmony vocals and tight Kingston rhythms – occasional currents of ska moving through early reggae modes – with top shelf studio backing to keep the groove. The set features 14 early scorchers – titles that include "Born To Be A Sufferer", "Sign Of The Times", "Do The Reggay Dance", "San Sebastian", "Tribute To Don Drummond", "Shame Face", "Deportation", and "I Am Just A Minstrel".

Idris MuhammadKabsha (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Theresa/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
Fantastic work from the legendary Idris Muhammad – the funky drummer who first rose to fame making breakbeats with Lou Donaldson in the 60s, then recorded some hip soul-based records in the 70s – here really getting back to basics with a set of soulful, spiritual small combo jazz! The record is a beautifully stripped-down session – with Muhammad playing un-funky drums, Ray Drummond on bass, and either Pharoah Sanders or George Coleman on tenor sax. The best tracks are long and lively – with Muhammad dancing out across the drum kit, filled with joy and life, exhibiting that rare straight jazz quality that he only brought to a few recordings, most notably his contemporary sides with Pharoah Sanders. Titles include a great remake of Jack McDuff's "Soulful Drums", plus "Kabsha", "Little Feet", "St M", and "GCCG Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 180 gram pressing!)
