Gene Ammons, Etta Jones, & Jack McDuffSoul Summit Vol 2 ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A set that's less a "summit" than a great collection of groovy work for Prestige Records in the 60s – tracks that didn't make it onto other full albums of the time, but which feature material by some of the most soulful talents on the label! Tenorist Gene Ammons is the main star here – stretching out wonderfully on most numbers on the record – although the set also features added tenor work from Red Holloway, George Barrow, and Harold Vick! The mighty Jack McDuff lends his Hammond to a few tunes, Etta Jones sings on three numbers, and the record even features trumpet from Clark Terry, alto from Oliver Nelson, and congas from Ray Barretto too – on cuts that include "Scram", "Cool Cool Daddy", "Ballad For Baby", "If You Are But A Dream", "But Not For Me", and "Love I've Found You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Silver & black label NJ pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover is nice!)

Etta JonesFrom The Heart ... LP
Prestige, 1962. Very Good ... $9.99
A beautiful album of heartfelt vocal tracks by a young Etta Jones – featuring arrangements by Oliver Nelson that rank among the best sort that he was penning for vocalists of this sort during the 60s. Etta's got a nice mix of material here, and although some of the tracks are a bit well-known, the arrangements and performance keep them fresh enough throughout. Titles include "By The Bend In The River", "There Goes My Heart", "Look For The Silver Lining", "Good Morning Heartache", and "I'll Never Be Free". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black and silver label pressing, with deep groove and Van Gelder stamp. Cover is nice!)

✨✧ Etta JonesSoulful Sunday – Live At The Left Bank ... CD
Reel To Real, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very soulful setting from singer Etta Jones – who really opens up here in a concert done for the Left Bank jazz society in Baltimore! The performance is from 1972, and really has Jones sounding a bit different than on her 60s material for Prestige – partly because backings are by the fantastically hip trio of pianist Cedar Walton – with the leader on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – a group that also stretches out on their own at the start of the record, for a fantastic 10 minute reading of "Love Story"! Walton's lyrically modern style is a nice contrast to some of the bluesier pianists who sometimes back Jones up – and there's a sophisticated swing to most numbers, which include "Love Nest", "For All We Know", "Sunday", "If You Could See Me Now", "This Girl's In Love With You", and "You Better Go Now".

✨✧ Etta JonesSomething Nice ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
It's always something nice when Etta Jones makes a record – but this one is especially so, thanks to some intimate small group backing from players who include Oliver Nelson, Lem Winchester, Wally Richardson, and Richard Wyands! The style is relatively intimate throughout – more late nite than some of Jones' other records, in a way that really works well for her vocals, and takes her away from some of the crossover pop modes of her albums that sound a bit more like Gloria Lynne. Titles include "Easy Living", "Through A Long And Sleepless Night", "My Heart Tells Me", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "That's All There Is To That", "Love Is The Thing", and "Canadian Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label pressing with deep groove and RVG etch. Cover has a stain along the bottom seam.)

Benjamin Franklin VJazz & Blues Musicians Of South Carolina – Interviews With Jabbo, Dizzy, Drink, & Others (hardcover) ... Book
University Of South Carolina Press, 2008. New Copy ... $5.99 19.98
South Carolina has been home to a surprising amount of jazz musicians over the years – a list of talents that includes Houston Person, Chris Potter, Webster Young, Etta Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Arthur Prysock, Nappy Brown, and a number of others – all of whom are featured in separate interviews within the book – which work together as an oral history of the surprising legacy of jazz in the state! Author Benjamin Franklin V is a professor in English at University Of South Carolina – and his questions are very well put, and he seems to have a manner that really puts some of the musicians at ease – given the length of their responses. 272 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

✨✧ Barbara Morrison with Houston PersonI Wanna Be Loved ... CD
Savant, 2017. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great pairing of the voice of Barbara Morrison and tenor of Houston Person – brought together here in a way that's similar to many of the excellent sessions that Person cut with Etta Jones over the years! Morrison's a different sort of singer, though – which makes for a nice sort of change – a vocalist who can hit a deeper range, but also balance that with a sense of class that we totally love – almost as if she's a more soul jazz version of Nancy Wilson, which makes her a great match for Houston's tenor. The rest of the group features Stuart Elster on piano, Richard Simon on bass, and Lee Spath on drums – and titles include "Shiny Stockings", "Perdido", "I'll Close My Eyes", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "September In The Rain", "I Wanna Be Loved", "Work Song", and "Make Me A Present Of You".

VariousAce Records Sampler Vol 2 – Doo Wop & Rock N Roll ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $2.99
Not your usual set of oldies – because in the hands of Ace Records, "rock n roll" and "doo wop" become completely new terms! The package goes way beyond simple hits and famous numbers – and offers up a great batch of unusual tunes from the less-known end of the musical spectrum during the big rock n roll years of the late 50s – forgotten numbers from both R&B singers and rockers, often served up in styles that are a fair bit rawer than material making the charts at the time. Titles include "That's Show Biz" by Dale Wright & The Wright Guys, "Rock Everybody" by The Teen Queens, "Let's Rock N Roll" by The Cadets, "Wild Bird" by The Jive-A-Tones, "59 Volvo" by Vernon Green & The Medallions, "Shortnin Bread Rock" by Etta Jones, "We're Gonna Rock N Roll" by Joe Houston, "The Rock A Round" by Paul Peek, "Cold Heart" by The Penguins, "You Cheated" by The Slades, and "Honey Love" by The Jayos. 20 tracks in all!

✨✧ Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes! CD

✨✧ Quincy JonesItalian Job – 50th Anniversary Edition (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Paramount/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful Quincy Jones soundtrack from the end of the 60s – and one that's a bit different than some of his other work of the decade! The film's a very cool British heist story, with Michael Caine in the lead – and while Quincy brings in plenty of the jazz of his background, there's also some warm elements that feel like some of the best British sound library material of the period – particularly in the use of electric bass on some of the more open, airy numbers – creating this great stepping vibe and subtle groove amidst the changing moods of the music! The title song is the great "On Days Like These" – sung at first by Matt Monro, then done in an instrumental version – and other titles include "It's Caper Time", "Greensleeves & All That Jazz", "Getta Bloomin' Move On", and "Somethings Cookin". Great 50th anniversary version – with the full film score and alternate bonus tracks – 20 more songs than the original album! CD

Al FosterMixed Roots (Laurie) ... LP
Laurie, Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The cover's not much to look at – but it houses a mighty nice set of funky 70s jazz! Drummer Al Foster leads the crew on this obscure session produced by Teo Macero for the mostly-rock Laurie label – and even though the album's kind of hidden under a completely innocuous cover that has a closeup of a Christmas Tree (?), it bursts out with a strong funky jazz groove that reminds us of some of the best drum-heavy electric 70s sessions in our collection, like work by Ed Thigpen or Les DeMerle. Players include Masabumi Kikuchi on electric piano, Mike Brecker and Sam Morrison on saxes, and Paul Metzke on guitar – and Teo Macero also sits in on the electric keys on one of the album's mellower cuts. There's not really any standout drum breaks that we caught on the set – but there are a lot of great choppy funk tracks in that "heavy drums meet riffing reeds" style that was started by Elvin Jones and popularized by Stone Alliance. Titles include "Mixed Roots", "Ya Damn Right", "Pauletta", "Double Stuff", and "Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde". LP, Vinyl record album

Trevor Lawrence JrRelationships ... CD
Ropeadope, 2017. Used ... $7.99
The title definitely sums up the vibe of the record – because although Trevor Lawrence is the drummer at the core, he's also clearly a hell of a warm personality, too – with a very welcoming vibe that makes the album's array of musicians and guest artists feel right at home! The set's jazz at the core, but with a strong dose of contemporary soul – maybe a bit in the territory of the Robert Glasper Black Radio projects, but with a vibe that's definitely all Trevor's own! The rhythms are rock-solid, and instrumentation often features some mighty sweet keyboards from Kenneth Crouch, Wow Jones, Tabor Gable, and others – alongside other musicians who include Kamasai Washington on tenor, Maurice Mo Betta Brown and Nico Segal on trumpet, Chelsea Baratz and Terrace Martin on saxes, Teodross Avery on tenor, and Nicholas Payton on trumpet. There's just a bit of vocals on the set – sung by Preston Harris, Jimi James, Donna Missal, and oddly LeAnn Rimes – but the instrumental core is what drives the set – on titles that include "Car Vibe", "B Side", "Bring The Party", "The Guts", "11 & 8", "Lovestoned", "Huh", "Alicia's Song", and "Relationships".
