Eddie RussFresh Out! (with download) ... LP
Jazz Masters/Soul Jazz (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
A landmark bit of indie funk from the 70s – one of the few records cut by Detroit keyboardist Eddie Russ, and easily the best! The album features Russ going to town on electric piano – working with a hip combo called The Mixed Bag, which features some wicked work on flute and soprano sax by Larry Nozero – and a vibe that's a lot more laidback than standard funk, or even more mainstream jazz funk too – a sweet open groove that's mighty nice all the way through! The album's really a showcase for Nozero and Russ' solos – trading back and forth effortlessly over long tunes that roll along in a sweet electric-tinged groove – long vamping rhythms that really seem to drive both players onto new heights. Titles include Russ' classic "The Lope Song", a great version of "Hill Where The Lord Hides", and the tracks "Shamading", "Watergate Blues", and "All But Blind". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie RussSee The Light ... LP
Monument/Soul Brother (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A beautiful album of spacey jazz funk! Eddie Russ was a 70s keyboard genius – right up there with Lonnie Liston Smith and Herbie Hancock in our book, although he never reached the fame of either of those players. This album's one of Eddie's best – and it's got a smoothly produced soul jazz sound that's almost a takeoff on the style of Smith's excellent records for Flying Dutchman – but a bit cooler overall, and with a great feel that links back to Russ' years in the Detroit scene. Tracks are uptempo and jazzy, with a strongly soulful vibe that features lots of electric keyboard work over the top of fast dancing rhythms. A few cuts have sweet female soul backup vocals, and additional instrumentation includes trumpet, sax, and guitar. Tracks include "Zaius", "Salem Avenue", "Poko Nose", and "See The Light".

Lamont JohnsonMusic Of The Sun (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tabu/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A soaring solo moment for Lamont Johnson – the bassist whose work was a big part of the Brainstorm ensemble at their start – and who really makes some great magic here on his own! It's clear from the set that Johnson was one of the more spiritual members of Brainstorm – as the approach here, while still heavy on funk and soul, also has some deeper touches too – core ideas from Johnson that are expanded strongly by arranger Jerry Peters, whose direction of the project stands as one of his best studio moments of the time! The team of Peters and Johnson really come up with a set that pushes past the usual grooves of the time – with some elements that recall the jazzier spiritual elements from folks like Eddie Russ or Lonnie Liston Smith, mixed with more of the focus on the groove that Johnson's bass brought to Brainstorm. There's lots of great guests on the record, too – including Norma Jean Bell on saxes, Renae Williams on vocals, Ronnie Foster on keyboards, Lee Ritenour on guitar, and Randall Jacobs on the mighty cool Roland Space Echoplex guitar. Titles include "Sister Fine", "Hey Girl", "Music Of The Sun", "This Must Be Heaven", and "Yours Truly Discreetly". CD features bonus tracks that include "Sister Fine (12" mix)", "Rhunba", "Masta Luva", and "Hey Girl (7" edit)". CD

VariousGood Times With Joey & Norman Jay – Classic Party Tunes From The Good Times Sound System ... CD
Nuphonic (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
A fitting tribute to two of the most important DJs in London over the past 20 years! Sure, Gilles P has a worldwide radio show, Russ Dewbury's got his Afro funk grooves, and Keb Darge has redefined the funk scene – but way before any of them Norman Jay was blowing out the rare grooves in London, hipping that city to a motherlode of great soul and funk back when most folks were still twiddling with post-punk club tracks or bad knock-off acid house records. Teamed with his brother Joey, the pair has been a seminal part of the Notting Hill carnival every year – as their Good Times Sound System pumps out a mix of club, soul, reggae, and funk as a never-ending soundtrack for this massive annual party. Nuphonic have come up with a stunning tribute to the pair, serving up a heaping platter of great rare tracks that perfectly capture the Good Times spirit, with enough music to take you late into the afternoon of any carnival Saturday. Titles include "Funky Nassau" by Ray Munnings, "Open Up" by Chic, "If You Really Love Me" by Stevie Wonder, "Thank You (MAW mix)" by Bebe Winans, "Mission Impossible" by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, "Prophecy" by Fabian, "Optimistic" by Sounds Of Blackness, "Rebel Without A Pause" by Public Enemy, "Sound Of Da Police" by KRS One, "Stone To The Bone (7" version)" by James Brown, "Fearless" by Incognito, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Just Us" by Two Tons Of Fun, "Hanging On A String (ext mix)" by Loose Ends, "I Heard That" by Eddie Russ, and "I Hear Music In The Streets" by Unlimited Touch. 27 tracks in all!

✨✧ Sonny StittWhen Sonny Blows Blue ... CD
Jamal/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweetly funky little set from Sonny Stitt – one of his hippest albums ever, and a rare date cut for Ahmad Jamal's short-lived record label! The sound here is a great combination of the late 60s tone that Sonny forged on other east coast indies – and some of the hipper, more open rhythms he'd later hit on the Jazz Masters label in Detroit on his work with Eddie Russ – a sound that's quite unique, and which is a fair bit different than the funk-based Stitt dates for Prestige around the same time. Players here are quite unusual too – Herbie Hancock on piano, organ, and Fender Rhodes – plus Ted Sommer on vibes, and guitar by either Gene Bertoncini, Howard Collins, or John Pizzarelli – depending on the track. Rhythm is by Ron Carter on bass and Grady Tate on drums – and the arrangements by Dave Ward have a nicely fresh approach to soul jazz – one that really keeps things interesting throughout! Titles include "Sunny", "My Idea", "Jason's Blues", "Out Of This World", "Opus 1", "When Sonny Blows Blue", and "Mac Arthur Park". CD

✨✧ Eddie Condon & Bud FreemanComplete Commodore & Decca Eddie Condon & Bud Freeman Sessions (8CD set) ... CD
Mosaic, Late 30s/1940s. Used 8CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Monumental work from these two key figures in pre-bop jazz – both musicians with a strong early tie to trad styles, but also artists who opened up to a fair bit of fresh ideas in the 40s as well! The box is the most comprehensive package we've certainly seen of Eddie Condon at this point in his career – with every Commodore and Decca recording, including many alternate takes, never-issued numbers, and other gems that really flesh out these years of his vital contribution to the growth of jazz guitar. Recordings feature Condon alongside players that include Max Kaminsky on trumpet, Wild Bill Davison on cornet, Jack Teagarden on trombone, Pee Wee Russell on clarinet, and Bud Freeman on tenor – plus a few that have Bing Crosby on vocals. And Freeman is featured on some excellent recordings of equally wide scope – less tracks overall than Condon, but lots of rarities and alternates from the Commodore years – including some excellent small group material. The box features a whopping 199 tracks in all – with the usual very thorough Mosaic level of notes and presentation – and most material was originally issued on 78s, save for the number of rare tracks that were unreleased back in the day. CD
(Numbered limited edition – out of print. Includes original box, book and CDs – all in great shape!)

✨✧ Manny Albam, Teddy Charles, & OthersSomething New, Something Blue ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cover of this one makes it look like a no-name leaderless session, but this one actually features some great work by some very hip players! Half the album features vibist Teddy Charles leading a group of modernists that includes Hal McKusick, Frank Socolow, Bill Russon, Bob Brookmeyer, Mal Waldron, and Donald Byrd – on tracks that have a bluesy base, but a bit of an edge to them. The other half features Manny Albam leading a combo with Al Cohn, Teo Macero, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, and Eddie Costa. The session was done to showcase the talents of 4 of the best modern arrangers of the late 50s – Manny Albam, Bill Russon, Teo Macero, and Teddy Charles – all of whom contribute some great charts to a set of tracks that includes "Swinging Goatsherd Blues", "East Hampton Blues", "Blues In The Night", "Night Crawlers", and "Blues For Amy".

✨✧ John ColtraneColtrane 58 – Prestige Recordings (5CD set) ... CD
Prestige/Craft, 1958. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic document of this breakout moment for the legendary John Coltrane – every single Prestige Records recording from the important year of 1958, a time when the tenorist really emerged as a leader, while still also sharing his talents in collaborative sessions too! This isn't the Coltrane of Love Supreme, but there's already a majestically soulful, deeply personal conception taking place here – one that makes Coltrane's sound instantly compelling, with long solos throughout that really show the spark of his young imagination at work! Much of this material was recorded during the year, then released later in many cut-up packages – so the set marks the first time that these tracks have all been put together properly, along with some of the "blowing session" or co-leader dates for Prestige from the time – and while many feature the core trio of pianist Red Garland on rhythm, other musicians include Freddie Hubbard and Donald Byrd on trumpet, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb and Art Taylor on drums. The set features 37 tracks in all, wrapped up in a really beautiful package with a huge book that collects rare photos and other ephemera, and very extensive liner notes from Ashley Khan – who's written extensively on Coltrane. Titles include "Lush Life", "Nakatini Serenade", "Theme For Ernie", "I Never Knew", "Big Paul", "Freight Trane", "Invitation", "Love Thy Neighbor", "Bahia", "Goldsboro Express", "Lyresto", "You Say You Care", "Russian Lullaby", "The Believer", "I See Your Face Before Me", and "Little Melonae".

Harry BeckettJoy Unlimited ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
Genius work from trumpeter Harry Beckett – the kind of easygoing electric work that he seemed to do better than anyone else on the British scene of the early 70s! The record's got a laidback approach that's really unique – one that pits Beckett's trumpet against guitar by Ray Russell, keyboards from Brian Miller, and additional bass, drums, and congas – the last of which are used to underscore the sound nicely. The sound shows almost no influence from the electric trumpet jazz of Miles Davis, Donald Byrd, or Freddie Hubbard – and is instead uniquely Beckett's own bag – almost always slightly funky or grooving, but never too much so – and neither too out nor too jamming, with a lanquid quality that's totally great. Titles include "No Time For Hello", "Bracelets Of Sound", "Rings Within Rings", and "Not Just Tomorrow". CD

Francoise Hardy/Johnny Hallyday/Brigitte Bardot/Sylvie Vartan/Serge GainsbourgYe Ye Sixties French Pop (Francoise Hardy 1 & 2/Johnny Hallyday Chante/Brigitte Bardot Sings/Twiste Et Chante/Et Le Cinema) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (Russia), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $12.99
Five full albums of hip French pop from the 60s – all packaged together, with a fair amount of bonus work too! First up are the first two albums by Francoise Hardy – filled with original tunes that have a really fresh presentation – not just in the lyrics, but in the overall presentation – which was a huge change from the overly emotive modes of the generation before. Hardy plays a fair bit of acoustic guitar along with her vocals – furthering the groovy feel of the set – and backings are by the orchestra of Roger Samyn, who adds in some slight rockish touches! Next is Johnny Hallyday chante Johnny Hallyday – a set that features all original material by the famous French rocker – really showing his growing strengths as a songwriter, which helped give him a uniquely French style! Next is Brigitte Bardot Sings – classic 60s work from Brigitte Bardot – the roots of French female pop, with a set of tracks that mix together bits of rock, pop, and lively jazz-based arrangements – all in a unique blend that's totally great, and every bit as wonderful as you might expect! We might go so far as to argue that Brigitte Bardot on record is almost sexier than on the screen – and thanks to backing from the likes of Claude Bolling, Francois Rauber, and Pedro Serrano – the grooves are as great as the lovely lady's vocals! Twiste Et Chante follows – groovy early work from Sylvie Vartan – some of the earliest sides we've ever heard from this fab French singer, and done at a time when she was clearly inspired by early rock from the US scene! A number of the tracks here are French remakes of American songs – like "Twist & Shout", "Comin Home Baby", "So Long Baby", and other groovy 60s numbers – mixed with French originals, and all given some sprightly orchestrations by Eddie Vartan, in a way that allows Hammond, guitar, and other electric bits to mix nicely with larger arrangements. Last up is Serge Gainsbourg Et Le Cinema – a set that shows early soundtrack contributions from the legendary French singer – really cool work that resonates strongly with the mix of jazz and Latin in his other early recordings!
