Ernie AndrewsSoul Proprietor ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great little set from Ernie Andrews – sounding quite different than on most of his other work! Although Ernie's best known as a jazz vocalist, he steps out here in a mode that's got a heck of a lot of 60s soul – working with arrangements by Shorty Rogers in a style that's got plenty of the same feel as Lou Rawls' best work at Capitol from the same time. The tunes are all nice and jaunty, grooving along with a hip and well-punctuated approach to the material that brings in plenty of light funk – and titles include "Crackerbox Livin", "More Than Ever Before", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Knock On Wood", "Walk Tall", "Go To Hell", and "You Can Make It Baby".

Count Basie & The Mills BrothersBoard Of Directors ... LP
Dot, 1967. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A late 60s swinger from The Mills Brothers – with the aging vocal group get some great assistance from the Count Basie Orchestra! By the time of this sessions, The Mills Brothers had been recording for at least 4 decades – and although their early hits had gained the group a great deal of fame, their career as a whole was fading considerably in the 60s. Enter Basie, whose group was still very much at the top of its form in the decade – thanks to a great ear for transforming older tunes into fresher takes, and newer tunes into more swinging jazz-based vehicles. Working here with arranger Dick Hyman, the Basie group gives the Mills Brothers a soaring, bouncing kind of support – one that takes their vocals, tightens them up, and really sends the tunes home with a nice sort of zing! Old and new numbers come off great in the setting – and titles include "Release Me", "I Want To Be Happy", "Down Down Down", "I Dig Rock & Roll Music", "Let Me Dream", "April In Paris", "I May Be Wrong But I Think You're Wonderful", and "Tiny Bubbles".

✨✧ ColoursColours ... CD
Dot/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1968. New Copy ... $4.99
One of the best American psyche albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". CD

Buddy DeFrancoBuddy DeFranco Plays Nelson Riddle's Cross Country Suite (Hamilton) ... LP
Dot/Hamilton, 1958. Sealed ... $7.99
Wonderful music throughout – and an album that's as beautifully written as it is played! The work represents one of the few long-form concept compositions from Nelson Riddle – an extended "Cross Country Suite" of trcks that take the listener on a tour of the US – performed here with full orchestrations that are very much in Nelson's best mode of the time, topped with some especially great solos from Buddy DeFranco! Buddy's sound here is tremendous – way more than straight clarinet jazz, and instead a really evocative approach to his instrument that brings forth an amazing array of sounds, tones, and feelings. The music is as seductive as the best late 50s jazz soundtracks – very expressive, but never over the top – and with a mature approach to its themes and sounds that really makes us wish they still made records like this! Titles include "Down East", "Gulf Coast", "The Rockies", "The Great Lakes", "Tall Timber", "Smoky Mountain Country", "El Camino Real", "Metropolis", and "Longhorn". LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara "I Dream Of Jeannie" Eden gets herself out of the bottle and into the studio for a set of 60s pop tunes designed to bring out another side of her magic! Bill Justis handled the arrangements, in a style that has that RCA Nashville country pop sort of feel overall – electric bass plucking out the bottom, chorus vocals helping out the lead, and a sort of syncopated groove that gently steps along from back to front. We'll be honest, and say that Barbara's vocals aren't that much to write home about – but the album's a nice celebrity relic – and does feature a few sexy Jeannie shots on the front! Titles include "Single Girl", "Bend It", "Rebel", "I Get The Fever", and "Nobody But A Fool". CD

Bonnie GuitarMoonlight & Shadows ... LP
Dot, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
Dreamy vocal work from Bonnie Guitar – a singer with a bit of a country tinge, but a jazzy feel as well! The album's got a laidback and mellow feel that fits perfectly with the title – moonlight, with just a hint of shadow – a blue undercurrent that comes from Bonnie's nice deep-toned approach on vocals. The backings are by Jack Fascinato, but are a bit more sensitive than some of Jack's work with Tennessee Ernie Ford – not as playful, but still with a great sense of sound overall – one that's a bit echoey, and which makes a great setting for Bonnie's voice. Titles include "Moonlight On The Colorado", "Moonlight & Roses", "The Moon Is Low", "Roll Along Kentucky Moon", "Get Out & Get Under The Moon", and "Moonlight & Shadows". LP, Vinyl record album

Manos HadjidakisBlue ... LP

Although Manos Hadjidakis' soundtrack work of the 60s is mostly in the Greek-sounding mode, this one features him hitting a bit of a western soundtrack feel – to back a drama starring Terence Stamp, Ricardo Montalban, and Karl Malden. About half the tracks are instrumentals with an orchestral feel, and the others are similar, but have slight "westerny" touches – although not as much so as work for Italian films of the same time. Laurindo Almeida plays a bit of acoustic guitar on the album – and titles include "Blue's Solitude", "The Mexicans Are Coming", "Death Of Blue", "Nocturne", "Scherzo", and "Morning After Love".

Neal HeftiBarefoot In The Park ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A work of true genius – and one of Hefti's most amazing soundtracks ever! Barefoot In The Park was written shortly before The Odd Couple – also for a Neal Simon film – and it's got a similar style of grooving to that more famous soundtrack, with two melodies working their way in together rhythmically, dancing around almost in counterpoint, but instead opening up the tunes in a really wild way. The main theme is tremendous – played in a number of versions, including one with some super-cool electric harpsichord – and even one number with vocals is pretty darn incredible. We love this one – and although short, it's a treasure throughout! Titles include "Barefoot In The Park", "Blues For Paul", "New Home Up A Stairs", "Nut On The Roof", and "Six Flights Up".

The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple! The record mixes music from the film with snippets of dialogue – and titles include "Clean Poker", "The Odd Couple", "End Title", "Curse Of The Cat People", "Dirty Poker", "Metropole", and "Down With The Lights".

A compelling set from Bugsy Maugh – a singer who started out in the band of Paul Butterfield, but who emerges here as a vocalist with a really great range, and a mix of jazz, soul, and rootsy elements – almost a Blood Sweat & Tears sort of vibe, but more personal overall!

Nancy PriddyYou've Come This Way Before ... LP
Dot/Modern Harmonic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A tremendously beautiful album from vocalist Nancy Priddy – the kind of record that got buried in the record bins of the 60s, but which is finally getting the attention it deserves! Nancy had a career that started out in folk (she was once a member of The Bitter End Singers), but she's working here in a slightly psychedelic style that mixes the intimate with the baroque – in a way that reminds us a lot of some of our favorite work on A&M at the time, and which is masterminded here by producer Phil Ramone. Nancy's sweet vocals dance lightly around a mix of strings, woodwinds, and sometimes funky drums that give the album a much stronger kick than you might expect – a groovy little sound that's almost Sunshine Pop, but a bit deeper and more personal overall. Manny Albam provided some great arrangements to the record that sparkle and groove along with some of his better-known jazz work of the period – and in a way, the record has echoes of some of the hipper work done on the Project 3 label of the era, almost reminding us of some of our favorite tunes by Free Design. Nancy wrote all her own material on the set – another thing that makes the record sound especially fresh – and titles include "My Friend Frank", "On The Other Side Of The River", "And Who Will You Be Then", "Epitaph", "Ebony Glass", "You've Come This Way Before", and "Mystic Lady".

Dot/MCA (Japan), Early 60s. Used ... $19.99
One of Lalo Schifrin's first, and rarest soundtracks – and a bit more complicated than some of his later work. Given the setting of the film, there's a surprising number of jazzy tunes on here – including some cool easy breezy ones that are in keeping with Schfrin's best mid 60s work. These are also mixed with some more dramatic numbers, and a few tracks that have acoustic guitar playing a gentle lead style, similar to some of the tunes in The Fox. Titles include "Bean Time", "Egg Eating Contest", "Tar Sequence", "Ballad Of Cool Hand Luke", and "Road Gang". CD

Lalo SchifrinThere's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On ... LP
Dot, 1968. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and hip than even the best of Schifrin's soundtrack work from the 60s! Some tunes certainly show the deft talent for arranging woodwinds and rhythms that first caught the ears of so many listeners on famous soundtracks – but in the setting of this record, away from any directorial needs, Lalo's also free to explore some groovier music ideas – and he really lets loose tremendously as the set rolls on! The titles alone should tell you the feel of the record – with names like "Secret Code", "Dissolving", "Vaccinated Mushrooms", "Wheat Germ Landscapes", and "How To Open at Will The Most Beautiful Window".

Dreamy pop from the great Brian Hyland – one of those 60s voices we can never get enough of! This set's a bit sadder, and a bit more sophisticated than some of Brian's earlier work – with a floating kind of approach that moves past simple pop, into a realm that shows the young singer possibly going for more of a serious vocal approach. Production is great, with plenty of nice twists and turns – and the requisite echoey bits – and titles include "Tragedy", "Walk Right Back", "A Million To One", "See The Funny Little Clown", and "Lonesome Town".

Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A great collection of work from Ray Columbus – a New Zealand rocker of mid 60s vintage, but one who works here with mod sounds to rival much bigger names in London at the time! The collection begins with a core set of work by Ray Columbus & The Invaders – a super-sharp combo who have this sense of energy and fire that's a bit like Paul Revere & The Raiders, but more tuned towards beat group sounds – boundless energy that makes the rest of the combo a perfect fit for Ray's spirited lead vocals. The set then moves into solo material that Columbus recorded on his own, and with groups The Challenge, The Art Collection, and Fire – all with stylistic shifts that follow some of the British forays into trippier sounds after the initial beat boom – or some more compelling, more sophisticated material that Columbus really carries off well as a solo act. Titles include "She's A Mod", "I'm Finding Out", "She's Back Again", "Till We Kissed", "We Want A Beat", "In Memory Of Today", "Happy In A Sad Kind Of Way", "Los Angeles", "I'm Good For You", "Polka Dot Resistance", "Kick Me", and "East Pinkerton Street".

A beautiful example of Johnny Griffin working in a style that would come to dominate some of his best later recordings – open-ended live blowing with a piano trio, in a mode that features Griffin as the dominant force of the tunes! The tracks on the set are all quite long – most well over 10 minutes in length – and Griff's got an incredible "Chicago" tone on his horn, working through even the most familiar numbers with a soulful imagination that's hardly been captured this well on record – at least from this period. The group's a piano trio led by Stan Tracey – and titles include "Straight No Chaser", "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", "All The Things You Are", "Wee Dot", and "Exactly Like You" – as well as a bonus interview with Griffin!

Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A nice range of work from Larry Hall – a singer who's best known as a one-hit wonder, with a small hit at that – but who steps out here with a groovy batch of material that only ever saw release as a string of indie label 45s at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s! Larry's got a great way of dipping and warbling his voice – never too much, but this unique inflection that can make simple lyrics catchier than they might otherwise sound – captured here with backings that mix rock and roll with gentler pop production, a mode that's maybe like some of the Cadence or Dot Records material of the period. Titles include Larry's hit "Sandy" – plus "Kool Luv", "The Stranger", "Rebel Heart", "Lips Of Wine", "Ladder Of Love", "I Didn't Ask To Be Born", "I'll Stay Single", "For Every Boy", "A Girl Like You", "Lovin Tree", and "I Sit Alone".

A wonderful pairing of this German pianist and American tenor star Zoot Sims – and an album that may well be the greatest that Jutta Hipp ever cut! Hipp was one of the rising stars of the German postwar jazz scene in the 50s – and although she issued other American albums in the decade for Blue Note and Decca, this side's probably the best-remembered of the bunch – thanks to the presence of Zoot, and support from a great rhythm section that includes Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – both of whom match the modern tones of Jutta's piano, but also give a solidly soulful Blue Note feel to the set. The group's completed by trumpeter Jerry Lloyd, who helps bring a nice sparkle to the frontline – and titles include "Just Blues", "Wee Dot", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Down Home".

Bobby JasparBobby Jaspar – The Barclay & Columbia Years (3LP/7" single set) ... LP
Barclay/Fresh Sound (Spain), Mid 50s. Near Mint- 3LP/7" ... $99.99
Although Belgian in origin, tenorist Bobby Jaspar was a key part of the French jazz scene of the postwar years – and his playing on records like these also made him one of the standout jazz talents in Europe in the 50s! This package brings together three rare albums from Japar, plus an even more obscure 7" EP – all in a really wonderful box! First up is Jazz At St Germain – cut for Barclay Records in 1955, and featuring a quintet with Rene Utreger on piano and Sacha Distel on guitar. Distel is especially wonderful, and even though he later went on to become a teen heartthrob pop singer in France, he's an excellent guitarist with an edgey string-heavy tone that really makes the recording stand out from some of Jaspar's other sides. That, and the fact that Jaspar's playing tenor on all tracks but one (he often plays mostly flute on some albums), makes the record one of his best from the time – and titles include "Minor Drops", "Bag's Groove", "Memory Of Dick", "Night In Tunisia", and "I'll Remember April". The Columbia album is rare American work from reedman Bobby Jaspar – a player best known for his contributions to French jazz in the postwar years, but working here with a set of American players! The album was recorded in New York for French branch of Columbia Records – done in November of 1956, and pitting Jaspar with some very well-matched musicians! The date features Jaspar on tenor, flute, and clarinet – with a tightly swinging trio that includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Knobby Totah on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a slightly modern combo whose work sounds especially great when Jaspar hits some hauntingly lyrical notes on flute. Titles include "Clarinescapade", "Tutti Flutti", "What's New", "Spring Is Here", "Wee Dot", and "I Won't Dance". The set also features the rare self-titled Bobby Jaspar album on Barclay – a rare late 50s album that features some of his best work of the decade on flute! The session's got Bobby playing with great backings on vibes by Fats Sadi and Michel Hausser – plus stellar drum work by Kenny Clarke, who's working the kit in really magical ways, augmented by some additional percussion by Umberto Canto. And sure, Jaspar's made some sleepy records in this format, but this set's not one of them – and bounces nicely with good energy and a really unique sound. Titles include "Le JAMF", "Speak Low", "Doxology", "Jeux De Quartes", "Chasing The Bird", and "Misterioso". Last up is a beautiful 7" EP also recorded for Columbia – featuring Eddie Costa on piano and Barry Galbraith on guitar – on "Barry's Tune" and "Minor Drop". LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1955. Used ... $11.99
Hard-swingin tracks from Ernie Wilkins – one of the most soulful arrangers of his time, working here in a wonderful all-star session from the 50s! The album's definitely got the "top brass" promised in the title – a lineup that features Donald Byrd, Ray Copeland, Idrees Sulieman, and Joe Wilder on trumpets – all working at a level that allows plenty of space for well-blown solos, but tied up in tighter ensemble formation overall – all with that Wilkins sense of swing that really set Ernie apart at the time. Rhythm is from a trip that includes Hank Jones on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kelly Clarke on drums – and titles include "58 Market Street", "Trick Or Treat", "Speedway", "Dot's What", "Top Brass", "Imagination", and "Willow Weep For Me".

Larry YoungTestifying ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1960. Used ... $11.99
Before stretching out on Blue Note later on in the 60s, Larry Young started the decade with some great sets like this – straighter soul jazz that showed he had a very firm grasp on traditional modes for the Hammond – more than enough to allow his experimentation in later years! The set's a nicely basic batch of tracks – one that's very open and spacious, with plenty of room for Young to open up on the keys – given that the backing here is mostly from Thornel Schwartz on guitar and Jimmie Smith on drums. The great Joe Holiday joins the group on tenor for two tracks – bringing in a style that nicely bridges modes – and although the groove is somewhat relaxed, you can certainly hear Young's genius already starting to form! Titles include "Excercise For Chihuahaus", "Wee Dot", "Testifying", and "Some Thorny Blues". CD

Blue Note, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. Tracks include "Wee Dot", "Quicksilver" (alternate), "Now's The Time", and "Confirmation". LP, Vinyl record album

The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. Tracks include "Wee-Dot", "Quicksilver", "Confirmation", and "Now's The Time". Includes two bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Jack MontroseJack Montrose With Bob Gordon ... LP
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the rare mid 50s treasures from the team of tenorist Jack Montrose and baritonist Bob Gordon – a great pairing from the LA scene of the mid century! Although both players were steeped in the sounds of their scene at the time, they also have a way of moving past cliche and common expectations – offering up music that's filled with surprise and delight, and which is always arranged with a great balance between tightness of execution and open personality of the players. Montrose arranged the album, and wrote a good number of the tunes – and other players include Paul Moer on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Bob Gordon on baritone – on titles that include "April's Fool", "I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town", "A Little Duet", "The News & The Weather", "Dot's Groovy", "Cecilia", and "Paradox".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used 8CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge array of music from the great Hank Thompson – most of it greatly overlooked! Hank rose to huge fame on Capitol Records in the 60s – but these sides represent the continuing evolution of his sound as the years went on – recordings for Warner, Dot, ABC, and MCA – in a journey that sometimes shows Thompson nodding towards more contemporary country, but eventually settling on a compact take on the western swing mode – which comes off very well in the 70s! If you only know the early Hank, there's plenty here to love – and the box is beautifully done, with a heavy hardcover book of notes and images. CD
(Box has a slight bump on one bottom edge, but this copy is in great shape overall.)

Brigitte BardotLa Belle Et Le Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Brigitte Bardot's best known on these shores as an actress, but during the 60s she cut some really fantastic work on the scene in Paris – including a fair bit of groovers that were done with help from the legendary Serge Gainsbourg! Bardot provided a fantastic new voice in the world of pop music – a singer who was unabashedly open about her desires, and very different than the more melancholy stars of a few years before – a quality that's further emphasized by the wonderfully groovy instrumentation used on most of these tracks! Production and arrangements are superb – and put this music in the best territory of the grooviest 60s French pop by artists like Serge Gainsbourg, France Gall, Jacques Dutronc, and a rare few others. This is the first-ever English-annotated collection of work from the period – and features a whopping 25 tracks from her recordings for Philips and Disc AZ – titles that include "Harley Davidson", "Contact", "Neu Au Soleil", "Je Danse Donc Je Suis", "La Madrague", "Les Hommes Endormis", "Je Voudrais Perdre La Memoire", "Mr Sun", "Le Diable Est Anglais", "Tu Es Venu Mon Amour", "John Et Michel", "Gang Gang", and duets with Serge Gainsbourg on "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus".

Sweet keyboard lines from Wladyslaw Komendarek – a Polish musician with a sound that's a lot leaner than his name – wrapped up here in a tight set of sound library instrumentals with a mighty nice 80s electro soul style! The tracks are tuneful, and have a bit of a groove – but are also farther from pop keyboards, too – as they've got some darker corners and more offbeat instrumental flourishes amidst the more forward-moving beats and basslines at the bottom. There's almost an 80s horror scoring sound to the music overall – and the record certainly owes something to the influence of John Carpenter's soundtracks – on titles that include "Halo Komputer", "Sen Shoguna", "Dotyk Chmur", "Wiosenny Snieg", and "Cyklamenowe Wyspy".

An incredible collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot – one of Serge's first duet albums ever – and a gem all the way through! In the year before he cut "Je T'aime Moi Non Plus" with Jane Birkin, Serge recorded this great album with Brigitte Bardot in which he worked out many of the same ideas. The album is probably best known for the track "Bonnie & Clyde" – which has been sampled to great fame over the years – but there's loads of other great tracks on here, with a mix of styles that joins Serge's jazzy years with his softcore 70s work – very cool, very groovy, and years ahead of its time. Some tracks are duets, and some are sung individually by Serge or Brigitte, but they're all great, and titles include "Intoxicated Man", "L'eau A La Bouche", "Un Jour Comme Un Autre", "Comic Strip", and more!

Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Wicked early work from Azymuth – one of the albums that the group recorded when they were really starting to take off on the global scene – burning strong with a soulful fusion vibe, lots of Brazilian rhythm currents, and always hitting all the right notes in their music! The sound here is still relatively spare, and sublimely reliant on the keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami – who plays Fender Rhodes, organ, and percussion on the set. Ivan Conti handles the main percussion, though – a great mix of tight work on the drum kit and rootsier, Airto-like elements that are totally great – and the whole thing's driven along nicely by bass and guitar from Alex Malheiros – a perfectly fused lineup that really hits their own groove on the set. Guests include Aleuda on percussion and vocals, Gordinho on surdo, and Doto on repinique – and titles include "Papasong", "Outubro", "Maracana", "Un Amigo", "Carta Pro Airto", and "Dear Limmertz".

Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1960s/1970s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
One of the greatest albums of material by William S Burroughs – and one of the few to really show his groundbreaking tape techniques! The album compiles a wealth of archival recordings – including obscure performances and experiments from the 60s, as well as Burroughs' own readings on his techniques and theories. The strongest value of the set is that it really gets past the "dottering old man rambling about the world" style of so many other Burroughs records – and gets at his truly revolutionary ideas about sound and language. An essential addition to any collection of sound art – with tracks that include "The Origin & Theory Of Tape Cut Ups", "Recalling All Active Agents", "Working With The Popular Forces", "Silver Smoke Of Dreams", "Junky Relations", "Interview With Mr Martin", "Joujouka", and "Sound Piece".

One of the greatest soul music TV shows ever (and one that originated in Chicago, too!) – presented here in deep detail with loads of interesting stories and anecdotes too! The book's almost a more personal history of the show than a technical one – but that's OK with us, because it really gets at the tales behind those iconic images on the screen – and the all-pro presentation of Don Cornelius too. And, in addition to the main body of the book, the publication also includes this massive show-by-show list of appearances – for 37 seasons of Soul Train, including the later rerun years – with details on the performers and dates for each show, in a section that's over 50 pages in length!

Beautiful live recordings from Bill Evans – recorded with his late 60s trio that included the incredible Eddie Gomez on bass, plus Marty Morell on drums – a lineup that was really taking off with Bill at the time, and learning how to make some wonderful music together! The setting is the Jazzhus Monmartre in Copenhagen, in November of 1969 – and the tracks have a nice compact feel, not as drawn out as other recordings from the venue at the time – still showing Evans to be a master of economy, even when opening up and exploring new ideas. Bill's also got a bit more punch on the piano than a few years later, which mixes the soulful and lyrical sides of his talents nicely – on titles that include "How My Heart Sings", "Autumn Leaves", "Five", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Sleepin Bee", and "Stella By Starlight".

There's a looseness here that's a good antidote to some of the more tightly-produced Japanese trio sessions – by the Great Jazz Trio, Super Jazz Trio, and other groupings of American players – and Flanagan's touch on the keys is especially nice here, almost a bit more "human" than on other records – with an odd sense of tone and phrasing that keeps our interest throughout. Titles include "Too Late Now", "Minor Perhaps", "Rachel's Rondo", "Things Ain't What They Used To Be", and "Django". CD

A very cool little collection – one that not just offers up a huge amount of important early work by the legendary Serge Gainsbourg – but a set that also includes a fair bit of his contemporaries singing his songs! When Serge first sprang onto the scene in the late 50s, he brought a new sort of edge to Parisian pop – a sense of danger and power that was different than some of the bluer-tinged modes of some of his predecessors – and the special quality of Gainsbourg's songs also led to many others recording his music – some up-and-coming artists like himself, others older artists who were taken up by Serge's new sort of energy. The 4CD set features a whopping 80 tracks in all – 48 by Gainsbourg, plus more by Juliette Greco, Brigitte Bardot, Michele Arnaud, Jean Claude Pascal, Hugues Aufray, Gloria Lasso, Alain Goraguer, and others.

One of the first in a run of excellent mid 60s sides from tenor saxophonist Red Holloway – a very cooking player who's at the height of his powers on this hard-edged set! The date has Red in territory that's slightly more expanded than his dates with Jack McDuff – a quartet mode with John Patton on organ, Eric Gale on guitar, and Paul Serrano on trumpet – all in a tightly arranged sound that's almost equal parts soul jazz and 60s soul instrumental! One track features a slightly different lineup – with Hobart Dotson on trumpet, George Butchka on organ, and Charles Lindsay on guitar – but the groove is quite the same, and features plenty of sweetly funky little numbers! Titles include "Bretheren", "Miss Judie Mae", "Monkey Sho Can Talk", "Crib Theme", and "The Burner". LP, Vinyl record album

Jackson's still got a very inspiring sound at this point – a polyrhythmic groove that's virtually the blueprint for the post-loft scene in New York – driven onward here by performances from key contemporaries who include Billy Bang on violin, Byard Lancaster on soprano sax and alto, Charles Brackeen on tenor and soprano, Vernon Reid and Bern Nix on guitars, Melvin Gibbs on bass, and Erasto Vasconcelos on percussion. Tracks are all tightly structured, but well up with free sounds from the musicians – and titles include "Sortie", "Nightwhistlers", "Eastern Voices/Western Dreams", "Shaman", "Dancers Of Joy", "Arising", and "Orange Birthday".

A contemporary Afro Funk record, but one with a vibe that makes us feel like we've discovered some lost strand of sound from the 70s! The Afrospot All Stars are wonderfully jazzy – a group who swing their horns more than blast them at times, warmed up by some great Fender Rhodes and very deft basslines – which seems to inspire some jazzier inflection in the vocals of Kodjovi Kush – a singer with a righteous style that reaches across different musical cultures, and has a power that really grabs us right away. There's lots of varied sounds bubbling through the mix, but never in any kind of overdone mash-up mode – just echoes of highlife, and maybe some Caribbean currents along with the groove. Beautiful stuff – a great antidote to some of the stiffer Afro-styled acts out there – with tracks that include "Togolo", "Agbadjazz", "Mariatou", "Mawuto", "Nutifafa", "Vonvononon", and "Yiri Yiri Boum".

Harry Allen's got a nice rasp in his horn – almost a late Coleman Hawkins sort of tone – and titles include "You N Me", "Blues Up & Down", "Step Right Up", "Wes Tune", "In The Still Of The Night", "New Orleans", and "One For Duke".

Rare radio recordings from this Polish hard rock combo at the start of the 80s – a group who have the kind of American classic rock vibe you'd expect from their look on the cover! A decade before, and Mech might have been been prog – but here, they play melodic material with a strong focus on deft guitar work, with the addition of keyboards that were starting to take over a bit with groups of the generation – a definite 80s sound, but in a way that's still quite complex and never that commercial. There's lyrics on most tunes – but, maybe like Rush, these guys are first content to fall into their instrumental explorations, then introduce some words to the songs. CD features two tracks from a Tonpress single, plus unreleased radio and live tracks – with titles that include "Atlantis Suite", "Marsz", "Antidotum", "Ogrod Snow", and "Dialog Z Nizszych Sfer". CD

Akira MiyazawaRound Midnight ... CD
King (Japan), 1985. Used ... $9.99
One of our favorite Japanese jazz players of all time – still sounding wonderful on this date from the mid 80s! Akira Miyazawa's easily the most soulful tenorist to come out of the Japanese scene of the 60s – and here, he works with a free, open approach to his horn that almost reminds us of Sonny Stitt in his later years – a really masterful way of opening up, yet never losing his groove – rhythmic, even in some of the most laidback moments – with an inherent sense of swing that matches his depth of tone. Many tracks are ballads, but blown way past obvious interpretations – and in addition to piano trio backing, the set's got some strings too – although Akira's tenor is always very strongly out front in the mix – a quality that makes the record feel like a Verve "with strings" set from the 50s. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Poor Butterfly", "I Can't Get Started", and "My One & Only Love". CD

Akira Miyazawa's easily the most soulful tenorist to come out of the Japanese scene of the 60s – and here, he works with a free, open approach to his horn that almost reminds us of Sonny Stitt in his later years – a really masterful way of opening up, yet never losing his groove – rhythmic, even in some of the most laidback moments – with an inherent sense of swing that matches his depth of tone. Many tracks are ballads, but blown way past obvious interpretations – and in addition to piano trio backing, the set's got some strings too – although Akira's tenor is always very strongly out front in the mix – a quality that makes the record feel like a Verve "with strings" set from the 50s. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "Poor Butterfly", "I Can't Get Started", and "My One & Only Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Yaseen MohamedYaseen & Party ... LP
Mzuri/Afro 7 (Finland), 1960s. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Yaseen Mohamed doesn't look like a party animal on the cover – but he really makes some fantastic music with his group – in this unusual blend of percussion, vocals, and cool thin keyboard lines on an unusual 60s instrument! The group also recorded under the name Mac & Party, but at a level that was equally obscure to our western ears – as these tracks were all issued as vintage singles in Mombasa, and have a sound that really illustrates that city's cultural crossroads in the East African scene! Vocals are in Swahili, and the instrumentation often has more of a Mid-East vibe than more familiar African modes of the period – especially when Yaseen works out these cool keyboard lines, sometimes on a tashikoto, sometimes on a Clavioline. Titles include "Uwa", "Tufate", "Nimepata Mweana", "Ndoto", "Mahaba Masikini", "Lala Mpenzi", "Mwana Na Kibarua", and "Haki Yoko". LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used ... $2.99
They're not kidding with the title of this one – because although the record was only Wes Montgomery's second album as a leader, he was already making plenty of waves with the sound of his guitar! The session lines Wes up with the very tight rhythm team of Tommy Flanagan on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – all of whom lay back and mostly let Wes take center stage – sparkling on a number of original tunes that include "West Coast Blues", "Mister Walker", and "D Natural Blues". Other tracks include a great fast take on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin", plus "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams". CD

✨✧ Eddie PalmieriMolasses ... LP
Tico, 1967. Very Good ... $29.99
Nothing slow and sticky here – because Eddie Palmieri is really hitting his groove by this point in his career – soaring along in a dark blend of jazz and Latin elements, with a fair bit more complicated modes than most of his contemporaries! There's a sophistication here that's really wonderful – and light years ahead of Eddie's albums of a few years before. Yet the album's never too bogged down in its own importance that it fails to groove – as most of the numbers here are killer groovers that burst out with raw energy that's perfect for a Latin dancefloor! Barry Rogers and Jose Rodrigues play twin trombones, Manny Oquendo is on timbales, and George Castro plays flute – but Eddie's really the star of the set with his incredibly bold lines on piano! Vocals are by Ismael Quintana, and titles include "Melao Para El Sapo", "You're Gonna Hear From Me", "Tirandote Flores", "Campesino", "Bombonsito de Pozo", and "Carnaval en Camaguey".

A perfect example of the great skill that Prestige had for taking a good ensemble player, and putting him into a context that really let him open up in a manner that brought his best points to light! In this case, Quinichette's plucked from Basie's group and put with a tight bunch of soulful players like Sonny Red, John Jenkins, Curtis Fuller, and Mal Waldron – all of whom are very well trained to handle this sort of pickup session well. Tracks are long, and titles include "Cool-Lypso", "Circles", and "Blue Dots". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun Ra's really moving forward with this classic set – refining the sound of his Chicago-based Arkestra, and reaching for new territory that moves him way past familiar jazz modes! The cover bills the group as playing "music from tomorrow's world" – and you can definitely hear that on some titles here, including one number that features Ra on some really haunting celeste, and another that features Marshall Allen making weird noises with his mouthpiece! The group is all greats from the old days – John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on flute, Pat Patrick on baritone and flute, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Hobart Dotson on trumpet, Charles Davis on baritone, and Ronnie Boykins on bass – and titles include "Hours After", "Saturn", "Ancient Ethiopia", and "Blues At Midnight".

ResidentsMeet The Residents ... LP
Ralph, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Mindblowing sounds from The Residents – and a key link between arty experimentalism of the 60s and some of the darker noise moments of the 70s! The sound is incredibly rich – layers of textures coming from instruments played by the group, and supposedly material from their huge archive of tapes collected over the span of a decade. Throughout, there's a playful feel that really keeps things appealing – a subtle sense of humor that's never as stoned-out as the Zappa generation, hidden under the enigmatic trappings of the group. Titles include "Boots", "Smelly Tongues", Rest Aria", "Guylum Bardot", "N-Er-Gee", "Spotted Pinto Bean", and "Consuelo's Departure". LP, Vinyl record album

Laidback, soulful work from Pharoah Sanders – a record that showcases a very different side of his talents than you might know from his classic albums on Impulse Records – but a side that's an equally great revelation overall! The album features mostly older jazz standards, blown by Pharoah in a mellow, late nite sort of mode – working with help from William Henderson on piano, Stafford James on bass, and Ecclesion Wainwright on drums. The format is surprisingly captivating, largely because Pharoah's tone is always such a treat – and he sparkles with a majesty on the set that captures our ear a lot more than we expected! The whole thing's almost got the feel of some of Coltrane's earlier ballad work – and titles include "The Nearness Of You", "Nancy", "I Want To Talk About You", "Say It Over And Over Again", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", and "You Don't Know What Love Is".

Although Italian pianist Armando Trovajoli is probably best known to Dusty Groove customers for the many many groovy soundtracks he's scored, he began his career as a talented jazz musician, as you'll hear here on this rare session from 1959! The set's a nice cooker at times – but also lays back into a mellower, more spacious kind of groove – making for a nice mix of upbeat and downtempo, recalling the greatness of Trovajoli's later soundtrack scores. Berto Pisano (also an Italian soundtrack genius) is in the group on bass – and other players include Enzo Grillini on guitar, and Sergio Conti on drums. Titles include "Walkin", "Round Midnight", "Have You Met Miss Jones", and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams". LP, Vinyl record album

We really loved Nick Walters the last time around, and on this set the trumpeter seems to be even more visionary than before – really going for this expansive approach to his music, and serving things up with a vibe that maybe makes him one of the most spiritual leaders on the contemporary London scene! The tracks here are all originals, and work together perfectly as a whole album – with Nick setting things up strongly with his own trumpet at the start, then folding in these beautiful contributions from Ed Cawthorne on flute and soprano sax, Jeff Guntren on tenor, Rebecca Nash on piano, Nim Sadot on bass, Max Hallett on drums, and Joseph Deenmamoode on percussion. Some tunes have a modal rhythm, but others get a bit more complex, although still with a similar organic pulse – and titles include "So Long Chef", "Gordian Knot (parts 1 & 2)", "Dansoman Last Stop", and "Ahimsa".

A treasure trove of classic soul – 5CDs and 100 tracks in all – all with the upbeat, soaring vibe that's always made these underground American cuts such favorites on the UK Northern Soul scene! The package starts with Motown, then really takes off – featuring loads of killer cuts from Chicago, Philly, and beyond – almost all from the late 60s, but with a few contributions from other years too – and all of the chart-shy quality that belies the love of rare and unusual cuts that made the Northern Soul dancefloors such a groundbreaking place for soul.

VariousRockin Rhythm & Blues From Memphis Vol 2 ... CD
Stomper Time (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
An excellent assortment of rare soul from 60s Memphis – most of it from the great House Of The Blues label – an early contemporary of Stax Records, and almost a precursor to the later soul sound of Hi Records too – given that Willie Mitchell features in a fair bit of the singles collected on this set! The style's nice and raw – definitely with the R&B elements promised in the title, but already more directed to the soul styles that Memphis would pioneer in the 60s – especially at the level in which the city was at such a unique crossroads of the south! Rural blues elements get electrified, and folded into a mix of both solo and group styles, sometimes with an early current of funk – in a smashing set of 21 tracks that includes "I Believe To My Soul" by Bill Yates, "Search No More" by Jimmy Dotson, "Thirty Five Thirty" by Willie Mitchell, "Soul House" by Ed Pauling & The Exciters, "No Fooling Around" by Del Monte, "Good Grip" by Daddy Goodloe, "Sooner Or Later" by Larry Birdsong, "Catch That Teardrop" by Five Royales, "Don't Break My Heart" by Roy Brown, "Please Wait" by Charles Jammer, "Fee Bee" by Billy Adams, "Bowleg Twist" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, and "Squeeze Me" by The Aristocrats.

Ru-Jac/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
Baltimore's legendary Ru-Jac Records label at the end of the 60s – coming to terms with some of the bigger changes in soul music, which means that they're adding a bit more funk to the mix! As with all the previous volumes in this excellent series, the scope of sounds and knowledge here is amazing – really detailed notes that not only get at the difficulties and complexities of running a small indie soul label, but which also show the shifting side of the audience for the records, and the way that both the singers and label changed to keep up! Don't let any of the "changes" put you off, though – as the music here is excellent – filled with the deep soul vocals and strong sense of fire you heard on the previous volumes, and featuring some unreleased titles too. Almost all the work here was recorded between 1967 and 1972 – there's only one final single from 1980 – and titles include "She's So Pretty (backing track)" by The Upsetters, "Sugar" by Fred Martin & Revue, "Changes (part 1)" by Saturday, "It's No Sin" by Gene & Eddie, "Every Day" by Sir Joe, "Think Of Me As Your Soldier" by Jimmy Dotson, "I Loved You Once" by Willie Mason, "Days May Come Days May Go" by Utopian Concept, "When I'm Alone" by Fred Martin & Revue, "Keep Off The Grass" by Dynamic Corvettes, "Nothing" by Winfield Parker, "Let Me Go Easy (alt version)" by Gene & Eddie, "Go On Back" by Willie Mason, "It's A Trap" by Dynamic Corvettes, "Contagious" by Fred Martin Revue, "I'll Be Your Lover" by Jimmy Dotson, "Days May Come Days May Go" by Francine Long, and "Tighten Up" by an Unknown Artist.

Way more than just a tribute to the legendary artist Keith Haring – as the collection's more of a portrait of the downtown New York scene in which Haring lived and worked – served up here as a fantastic blend of hip hop, street soul, and offbeat club tracks from the time! The music here is a great antidote to more familiar territory in the disco and 80s groove years – as many of these artists effortlessly combine stylistic modes with the same groundbreaking energy that Haring brought to his artwork – signaling the rise of a whole new generation, while also giving them a great soundtrack of grooves! The double-length package is wonderful – full of music that most folks might not expect together, but which really set the scene back at the start of the 80s – tracks that include "It's Music" by Damon Harris, "For The Same Man" by B Beat Girls, "Weekend (Larry Levan mix)" by Class Action, "Elephant Man" by The Girls, "Chuka Ja" by Adiche, "Danger" by Pylon, "Pak Man" by Jonzun Crew, "Bump & Grind It" by John Sex, "Jam Hot" by Johnny Dynell, "Over & Over (12" disco)" by Sylvester, "I Zimbra" by Talking Heads, "Sortie 134 (part 2)" by Art Zoyd, "Let's Do It" by Convertion, "Cut It Up High Priest" by Gray, "Love Money" by Funk Masters, "Change The Beat" by Fab 5 Freddy, "ET Boogie" by Extra T's, "Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, and "Jeffrey I Hear You" by The Girls.

The second fab album from Curt Boettcher's legendary Goldebriars group – even dreamier and more unconventional than the first, and filled with beautiful harmony vocals! As on the group's debut, singers Dotti and Sheri Holmberg take the lead on most of the tunes – but Boettcher's also singing along with them a bit too, starting to develop the styles he'd use later on, and really giving a weird sort of sound to the music. Arrangements have their roots in folk, but really change things up a lot – still using simple acoustic instruments, but in modes and rhythms that are a far cry from both mainstream and rootsy folkies of the 60s! There's an eerie, otherworldly feel to the whole record that's amazing – like finding some lost Pandora's Box of music buried deep in the mountains – opened up and floating magically through the skies. Titles include "Zum Gale Gale", "Ride That Chariot", "Jump Down", "Haiku", "Sweet Potatoes", "Sea Of Tears", "MacDougal Street", "Joy Joy Joy", and "No More Bomb". LP, Vinyl record album

Quite possibly the most "all star" session ever cut by pianist Elmo Hope – and one of his few dates to feature horns as well! The album's one of a few cut for Prestige by the modern piano giant – and it's done in an open-ended, long song format that was very much in keeping with the label's "blowing session" mode of the time – a setting that lets Hope really stretch out with players that include John Coltrane, Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. And while the album has less of the angular, more tightly wound modern lines of some of Hope's better known work, it's still an extremely strong set overall – more of a showcase for all players involved, but still featuring 2 Hope original compositions – "Weeja" and "On It" – as well as versions of "Polka Dots & Moonbeams" and "Avalon".
