BT ExpressGive Up The Funk – The BT Express Anthology 1974 to 1982 ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
An incredible legacy of funk – from a group who were easily one of the tightest, sharpest acts in the mainstream soul scene of the 70s! BT Express are a combo who pre-date disco, and whose grooves went a long way towards forging the blueprint for that mid 70s movement – but their music also never went the way of the easy crossover hit, or the cliched mode of pop disco production – as the second half of the 70s only seemed to have the group digging in their heels and sounding even funkier than ever! Compression is the key to the BT Express sound – an ability to bring together many different elements and lay them down right on the money together – focusing things so that the complexity of their instrumentation is often understated, even though it's the quality that makes their grooves so great! This wonderful package really gets right to the core of the BT Express sound – picking all the right tracks from both their indie and major label years – and serving up 31 tracks that include "Make Your Body Move", "Happiness", "This House Is Smokin", "Mental Telepathy", "That's What I Want For You Baby", "Peace Pipe", "Shout It Out", "Sunshine", "This Must Be The Night For Love", "What You Do In The Dark", "Ride On BT", "Give Up The Funk", "Does It Feel Good", "Can't Stop Grooving Now", and "Do It Til You're Satisfied".

Express RisingExpress Rising (2nd album) ... CD
Numero, 2013. New Copy ... $7.99 13.00
A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising – and a much-anticipated second project from funk archivist Dante Carfagna! Dante's a name you probably know best from his work writing liner notes or Wax Poetics – and helping out in countless important compilations over the years – but a decade ago, Dante dropped his first mysterious project under the Express Rising name – and finally returns here with a second album! The sound is even more enticing this time around – still drawing a bit from the world of DJ Shadow – a frequent Carfagna collaborator on archive projects – but the sound is also surprisingly warm and lyrical too – bits of beats, layers of older sounds, and these spare keyboard bits all served up together in a style that's really unique – and which avoids any of the cliches of both the downtempo world, and the instrumental hip hop scene The approach is often quite poetic, yet still soulful as well – and the whole thing's got a laidback vibe that's neither sleepy nor muddled – a really sort of special space between the grooves. Titles include "Horse Opera", "Dark Early", "Answering Echo So Near", "Winter The Heart", "A Treasure Smile", "Rooms Between Us", and "Memorabilia". CD

Gil Scott-Heron & His Amnesia ExpressSummer '86 (180 gram vinyl) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Trading Places (UK), 1986. New Copy ... $23.99
Great live work from Gil Scott-Heron – and somewhat essential, too – as the set features recordings from a time when Gil wasn't working for any other record labels! The quality of the set is wonderful – although the man was a bit out of the limelight at the time, he could still really deliver greatness on stage – and the group features Robbie Gordon on bass, Kim Jordan on keyboards, and Ron Holloway on tenor – a nicely jazzy group who respond to some of the changes Gil brought to his music during the Arista years. Titles include "Gun", "Save The Children", "Is That Jazz", "Blue Collar", "Winter In America", "Johannesburg", "Washington DC", and "Three Miles Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BT ExpressNon-Stop ... LP
Roadshow, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
BT Express are speeding it up a bit from the first album – hitting more of a disco vein, as would be their due, since they were one of the key groups in inventing the genre! The core ensemble funk sound is still firmly in place, with loads of great horns arranged by the enigmatic Carlos Ward, a jazzy talent who always brought a nice edge to the group's albums. Includes the tasty funk cut "Devil's Workshop", which has a similar feel to "Express" – plus the massive "Peace Pipe", a very catchy number that's always been a favorite in Chicago. Also includes "Discotizer", "Give It What You Got", "Whatcha Think About That?", and "Close To You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Positive ExpressChangin' Times ... LP
Victory, 1982. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great soul harmony trio – and one with a solid 80s groove! Positive Express recorded this one-off set for a smaller Sugarhill subsidiary in the early 80s – working in a tradition that goes back to the earlier All Platinum/Stang harmony work of the 70s (the group kicks off the set with a cover of an early Moments tune), but which also soars along on some bouncier, boogie-oriented grooves that are totally great. There's a snapping quality to most of the tracks – bringing an almost rollerskating groove to some of the best tunes – handled in a stripped-down indie soul mode that's totally great. Redd Hott provide the backings, and titles include a version of The Moments' "Not On the Outside", plus "Time Is Changing", "Welcome To The Party", "Do Me", "Love Injection", and "A Special Love Song".

✨✧ LA ExpressLA Express/Shadow Play ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of jazz funk classics from this group who got their start with reedman Tom Scott! First up is the self-titled LA Express – funky fusion with a bit of a studio feel – played by the LA Express, a combo best known for their work with Tom Scott – stepping out here strongly on their own! Even without Scott's sax in the lead, the sound here is still pretty darn sharp – and the lineup features Robben Ford on guitars, Victor Feldman on keyboards, Max Bennett on bass, and John Guerin on drums and percussion – plus saxophones from David Luell, who kind of steps in where Scott left off! There's some nice jamming that's on the tighter side of the CTI sound – with lots of choppy sax lines from Luell over sweet electric rhythms – and titles include "The Shrug", "Stairs", "Cry Of The Jungle", "It's Happening Right Now", "Western Horizon", and "Down The Middle". Shadow Play is proof that the group could stand strongly on their own away from former leader Tom Scott! This time around, the sound is a bit more built-up than before – put together with a slight dose of soul in the mix, which really warms things up from the sharper sound of their debut! The album features vocals on 3 numbers – wonderful wordless scatting from Joni Mitchell on the track "Nordic Winds" – which almost comes across like a rare Euro fusion cut from the time – and straighter soulful singing from Paulette McWilliams on the tunes "Double Your Pleasure" and "Dance The Night Away". Players include Victor Feldman on keyboards and percussion, David Luell on saxes, Peter Maunu on guitar, Max Bennett on bass, and John Guerin on drums – and other titles include "Shadow Play", "Chariot Race", "Velvet Lady", "Mad Drums & Englishman", and "Vortex".

✨✧ Pacific ExpressBlack Fire (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A seminal album from one of the hippest groups going on the South African scene of the 70s – a combo who mixed equal parts electric jazz and R&B, in a mode that's strongly inspired by American groups of the time! The Pacific Express vibe has plenty of echoes of the Earth Wind & Fire sound of the mid 70s, but also has jazzier tones at times – especially on the keyboards, which hit some spacey Stevie Wonder moments on some of our favorite tracks. Other tunes come across with a bit more of a crossover vibe – a style clearly engineered to overcome the racial boundaries in South Africa at the time, and one that helped the group sneak in the back door to fame The jazz component of some of the best tracks is especially high – mixing keyboard and guitar lines next to more biting sax work – and players in the group include Basil Coetzee, Robbie Jansen, and other luminaries who went onto solo fame in later years. Titles include "Feelings", "Brother", "Sky Ride II", "Black Fire", "Love Your Baby Right", "You're Everything", and "Windsong". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Montgomery ExpressMontgomery Express Does Party Fever & Other Songs Of The Montgomery Movement ... CD
Folkways, 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A massive lost funk classic – one of those rarer than rare albums that's well worth the fuss! The Montgomery Express were a Florida combo who played on the state's small club circuit – working equally well on their own, or backing up a number of better known singers. The group's got a diversity that's really great – and they're equally well-suited to longer, trippier funk instrumentals, and shorter more soul-based tunes. The vocal numbers are especially haunting, as they've got a moody and sad feel that's more like New Jersey or Detroit group soul of the time than the usual Miami soul – and the funkier tunes have a nice psychedelic approach that uses plenty of sweetly-tuned guitar! 8 tracks in all – "Party Fever", "Precious Wing", "Montgomery Movement", "Gotta Make A Comeback", "Who", "Steal Away", "I'm Standing By", and "Left Me With A Memory". CD

The second album from Love & Rockets – and the biggest step away from the heavy goth moodiness of Bauhaus to date – but it's still got a distinctive, nocturnal vibe, even if the melodies have some poppier strains. The mix of dissonant touches with straight forward melodies and catchy songs is unique to this day. Way up there with the best Love & Rockets records ever. Includes "It Could Be Sunshine", "Kundalini Express", "All In My Mind", "Life In Laralay", "Yin And Yang (The Flowerpot Man)", "Love Me", "All In My Mind (Acoustic Version)" and "An American Dream".

VariousAll Aboard The CN Express – Rocksteady & Boss Reggae Sounds 1967/1968 ... CD
Doctor Bird (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $12.99
Killer early work from producer Clancy Eccles – a special set that focuses on rocksteady and early reggae productions – most compiled here for the first time ever! The work here is great – raw, soulful, and grooving in ways that move from midtempo to a slightly quicker pace – usually topped with a fantastic singer in the lead, and served up with instrumentation that's spare and right on the money – perfect for the sorts of hard-booming sound systems that were springing up to showcase singles like these! The work here was initially issued as 45s on labels that include New Beat and Doctor Bird, and most tracks on the set have been unavailable for decades – making them even more obscure than material on other Clancy Eccles collections. 26 tracks in all – with titles that include "Mother's Reply" by Lyn Taitt & The Jets, "You Were Meant For Me" by Lee Perry, "You Think I'm A Fool" by Hemsley Morris, "Easy Snappin" by Theo Beckford, "Western Organ" by The Clancy Set, "Bye Bye Love" by Alton Ellis, "Promises" by The Silverstars, "Heart Beat" by Ernest Ranglin, "No Good Girl" by The Mellotones, "Mother's Advice" by The Inspirations, "Please Stay" by Larry & Alvin, "I'll Hold You Tight" by Velma Jones, "Love Brother Love" by Hugh Malcolm, "Hey Mama" by Lee Perry, "Terrible Headache" by The Coolers, and "Let Us Be Lovers" by Velma & Clancy.

✨✧ Jerry GoldsmithGoldsmith At 20th Vol 1 – Von Ryan's Express/The Blue Max ... CD
La La Land, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-header of soundtracks from composer Jerry Goldsmith – both from his 60s years at 20th Century Fox! Von Ryan's Express is a lot more driving and dramatic than some of the composer's other scores – Goldsmith serving up a rich score to a wartime action thriller with Sinatra in the lead – but also bringing in some moodier elements of the type he used in some of his more cerebral scores of the 60s. The mix is nice – not straight military action, but nicely deep – and the CD features 43 tracks, including the film score, soundtrack album, and additional material too. The Blue Max is one of the most famous Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks ever – even if the film itself wasn't much of a hit! Goldsmith really rose to the top ranks of film composers with his work for Blue Max – able to orchestrate both full action and quiet moments with effortless ease – often through these compressed passages that really move beyond the usual Hollywood scoring standard of the time! Things are never too flowery, yet still remain quite full at times – and Goldsmith really demonstrates his great skill with creating special odd sounds out of more familiar instruments. CD features 31 tracks in all – including the full film score, and additional music too! CD

A masterpiece of messed-up LA funk – and one of the crowning moments in the career of Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band! Charles and crew do an excellent job with all the tracks – most of which are more open ended than some of their earlier ones, and run on for longer than usual with some good trippy instrumental moments that really stretch out the groove from their funky 45 days. The album includes the stoner funk classic "High As Apple Pie", done here in two "slices", plus the classic "Express Yourself", a monster number that still sounds great every time we hear it – even though it's been used on commercials and sampled plenty of times over the years! Other tracks include "I'm Aware", "Love Land", and "I Got Love" LP, Vinyl record album

A classic album from this Japanese electronic group – a set that definitely borrows elements from 70s jazz fusion, but winnows them down into a leaner, more compact mode that's very much in the mode of the scene at the time! Instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, guitar parts, and rhythm programs – often used with a nice bit of groove, but never too much – as if these guys were trying to steer clear of sounding too chart-oriented, with maybe more of a mode that you'd hear in some cool 80s soundtrack. Titles include "Domino Dance", "XY?", "Clash", "Person To Person", "Logic", "Talk Back", and "Convulsion Of Nature". LP, Vinyl record album

A rare set from the Japanese scene at the start of the 70s – a record that comes in a plain brown wrapper, but maybe that's because it packs such a sinister punch! The set's got a style that starts in blues rock, but trips things out nicely – plenty of searing guitar lines, but some moodier moments that are much more mysterious – all set to songs composed by Jun Kamikubo, with Japanese lyrics by Kazuya Senke! Jun sings as much with his guitar as with his voice – and titles translate to "What's My Life", "I Want To Be What I Can Be", "Go Through The Wind", "Leaving My Position", and "Reflection Of Sentimentalism".

On-U Sound (UK), 1998. Used ... $9.99
A record so cool, it's practically a genre unto itself – and a set that's a key part of the On-U Sound approach of the 80s! The group draw initial influence from 70s Jamaican dub, but never hold to just the roots of that music – and instead explode into a huge range of odd sounds and styles that really mark their role in the UK post-punk scene of the time. There's loads of odd noise, weird effects, and plenty more going on here – interacting with rootsy percussion, keyboards, and plenty of heavy basslines – on titles that include "Timbuktu Express", "I Want Water", "Bazaar", "African Hedge Hog", "Depth Charge", "Fruit Market", "Snake In The Hole", and "Many Generations".

Alice ColtraneHuntington Ashram Monastery ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99 About June 16, 2021
Swirling spiritual work from Alice Coltrane – an incredible trio album that features her heavily on harp, plus a bit of piano – in a trio with Ron Carter on bass and Rashied Ali on drums! The sound is wonderful – lush, yet contemplative – in a personal style that really shows Alice beginning to express herself in new modes after the death of The Great One. The us of harp is especially incredible – handled here with a sense of majesty that really leaves us breathless, and which goes far beyond other use of that instrument in jazz. And even Alice's piano is surprisingly nice – with these mellow, earthy undertones that bubble at the bottom and ground the whole effort on earthly territory. Titles include "Turiya", "HIS", "Jaya Jaya Rama", and "Via Sivanadagar". CD

Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
An album issued in the years after John Coltrane left the Prestige Records label – but a set that includes some very compelling sounds from the early years, really showing the tenorist in a strongly spiritual transition! Coltrane plays tenor throughout, and the record also features the Red Garland trio, with Red on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and either Art Taylor or Jimmy Cobb on drums – but the set also features trumpet from the great Wilbur Harden on half the record – Coltrane's frequent partner over at Savoy Records, who comes into the music here with the sort of searching, open style that works so well with Trane's tenor! The music is partly in the Garland/Coltrane late 50s Prestige mode, but also has some of the deeper spiritual vibe of the Savoy years too – and titles include "I'm A Dreamer Aren't We All", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Bahia", and "Goldsboro Express".

Cairo/Mississippi, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
A deep soul treasure! You've probably never heard of the team of Eddie & Ernie, but they've risen to fame over the years with collectors of rare 60s soul – and have recently been immortalized on volumes of Dave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures, one of the most important soul compilation series to come out in the past few decades! In fact, Eddie & Ernie were so "lost" for years, this album marks their first-ever full length set on vinyl – long overdue, given that they were recording in the 60s and early 70s – both as Eddie and Ernie, and under the names Phoenix Express, The New Bloods, and Little Worley & The Drops. The duo have a brilliant blend of deep and sweet soul that makes us wonder why these guys were never bigger than they were – and think of the set as the same as finding a stash of some of the best 60s soul singles you could hope to hear. Titles include "Bullets Don't Have Eyes", "Lost Friends", "I'm A Young Man", "I'm Going For Myself", "Watch Your Step", "Self Service", "Falling Tears", "That's The Way It Is", "Time Waits For No One", and "Why Do You Treat Me Like You Do".

A bold vision for a better version of our nation – served up here by percussionist Kahil El Zabar, but in a mode that also has him working as the conductor of a larger ensemble too! The record has all the sense of pride, power, and optimism of some of the best sessions of this type from the 80s – that feeling that music can actually effect change, especially in the hands of artists like this – a very strong ensemble that features work from Corey Wilkes on trumpet, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Tomeka Reid on cello, Josh Ramos on bass, Samuel Williams on violin, and Dennis Winslett on alto sax! The record still has a sense of groove that you'd know from Kahil's smaller group records – imagine a Ritual Trio sense of rhythm with augmented elements – and the set mixes a few well-chosen covers with great originals. The set is dedicated to Bluiette – it was his last recording – and titles include "Prayers For The Unwarranted Sufferings", "Sketches Of An Afro Blue", "Express Yourself", "Freedom March", "That We Ask Of Our Creator", and "How Can We Mend A Broken Heart".

Blue Note/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most righteous albums of jazz ever recorded – a brilliant blend of soulful and avant garde styles, backed up by a chorus of voices that have a really soulful sound! The album's the second recorded for Blue Note by the Ghetto Music ensemble of trumpeter Eddie Gale – a lesser-known talent who recorded previously with Cecil Taylor, but who made a turn away from modernism at the end of the 60s, in order to express himself at a level that he felt was more clearly grounded in the people. The result of that effort is sheer brilliance – an album that sounds like nothing else you can imagine. Part of the style shares the energy of similar vocal/jazz projects by Max Roach and Billy Harper, but Gale's conception of the music is much more dynamic, and very carefully rooted in song structures – with a sound that's as powerful today as it was when it was recorded! Titles include "Ghetto Love Night", "Song Of Will", "Ghetto Summertime", "Black Rhythm Happening", and "Look At Teyonda". LP, Vinyl record album

Taana GardnerTaana Gardner ... LP
West End (UK), 1979. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $30.99
The only full length album cut by singer Taana Gardner – quite a surprise, given how much impact she had on the clubs with her 12" singles at the start of the 80s! The album's got Gardner as a much richer singer than you might expect – able to lay back on a mellow track as well as step out on a groover – always with that higher range of vocals that really made her a standout at the time, but in ways that are never gimmicky or poppy at all. And in fact, there's a lot more depth to the record than you'd guess from the dated exercise cover image – a classic soul approach that's also quite a surprise for the mostly disco West End label too. Tracks are all nice and long – and backings are by Sunship, with Bernard Wright on Fender Rhodes. This is a special 2LP version of the album – and titles include "Work That Body (orig 12" version)", "We Got To Work It Out", "When You Touch Me", "Paradise Express", and "Just Be A Friend" – plus "Heartbeat (12" version)" and "No Frills (party version)".

A huge body of work from Italian pianist Giorgio Gaslini – material recorded for his own Dischi Della Quercia – a later imprint that really gave him the chance to express himself in a great number of ways! There's some really special albums on the set – records that include some key duet sessions – one with trombonist Roswell Rudd, one with altoist Anthony Braxton, and one with bassist Eddie Gomez – and some key group outings with some of the best younger Italian players, grouped together under Gaslini's mature direction, in pursuit of a range of sounds that run the gamut from traditional jazz modes to more avant sounds to some compelling Eastern experiments too. The package brings together 11 full albums, many of which we haven't seen on CD in a long long time – the records Murales, New Orleans Suite, Free Actions, Graffitti, Sharing, Live At The Public Theater, Ecstasy, Four Pieces, Indian Suite, Monodrama, and Skies Of China.

Life after Peter Gabriel – with Phil Collins doing a surprisingly great job on vocals – free from all the tripe of later years! The group are still very much in the mode of their early prog years, but balance things out with a few catchier tunes – a mode that's a bit like the Selling England By The Pound album, sans Gabriel. Collins is learning how to express himself soulfully, but not in a commercial way – and the few off moments are more than balanced with some wonderfully tight instrumental work – on tracks that include "Dance On A Volcano", "Robbery Assault & Battery", "Ripples", "Trick Of The Tail", and "Mad Man Moon".

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieBirk's Works – Verve Big Band Sessions ... CD
Verve, 1956/1957. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Seminal work from Dizzy – showing that he was a genius in any form of jazz! In the mid 50s, Diz had one of the hippest big bands going – filled with great young players that included Lee Morgan, Joe Gordon, Melba Liston, Benny Golson, Billy Mitchell, and Walter Davis Jr. The work he crafted here was partly an extension of his earlier bop sides, but also a demonstration of his desire to express himself in more expansive forms – kind of a hint of the direction he'd take in the 60s, with his work in Latin, soundtrack, and funk styles. The set combines tracks from 3 different Verve albums – and it also packages the material with a number of previously unissued tracks, and some great liner notes that do a wonderful job of summing up the spirit of the work. Arrangements are by AK Salim, Quincy Jones, Tadd Dameron, and Dizzy himself – and tracks include "Jordu", "Tin Tin Deo", "Groovin For Nat", "Dizzy's Business", "Jessica's Day", "Doodlin", "Yo No Quiero Bailar", "Birk's Works", "Tangorine", "Umbrella Man", and "Mayflower Rock". 42 tracks in all!

Haggis HornsStand Up For Love ... CD
Haggis (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $15.99
The Haggis Horns just seem to get tighter and tighter with each new record – to a point where they're way more than just another funk combo with a gimmicky name, and have grown into a really great soul group on their own! The rhythms, arrangements, and horns are great – but there's also plenty of excellent vocals on the set from John McCallum, a singer who helps the group move way past just simple funk modes, and way into more of a fuller-blown style of vintage soul – one that might rival the best of their countrymen, Average White Band – and which almost has the sharp crackle and snap of early work by Brand New Heavies! Titles include "Burning", "Stand Up For Love", "Give It Up", "Haggis Express", "Shoulder To Shoulder", "Don't Give A Damn", and "Suzi Traffic". CD

Screamin' Jay HawkinsBecause Is In Your Mind (colored vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Philips/Third Man, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A nice little set from Screamin Jay Hawkins – done during his surprising revival years at the end of the 60s – and with a nice new soulful twist, thanks to production from the excellent Huey P Meaux! The vibe is definitely different than the Screamin Jay work of the 78rpm years – but the vocals are excellent, and the shift to soul music really suits his unique style – and maybe even gives him a whole new way to express himself! Titles include "Please Don't Leave Me", "I Wanta Know", "I Need You", "My Marion", "Bite It", "Move Me", "Good Night My Love", "Our Love Is Not For 3", "Ain't Nobody's Business", "Take Me Back", "Trying To Reach My Goal", and "So Long".

Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A record with a really beautiful title – and a sound that definitely lives up to the "Sailing Ice" on the cover! The music is very much in the best post-Coltrane mode – played by a group led by the great Japanese drummer Motohiko Hino, and featuring Mabumi Yamaguchi on tenor and Yasuaki Shimizu on soprano and tenor – two reed players who really express themselves with a great sense of spirituality, and lots of searching energy throughout. The tracks are mostly originals (save for a version of "Soultrane") – served up in freewheeling modal grooves, and peppered with sharp, soulful solos that search out bold new territory, but which never get too free and sloppy. The set was recorded live, but the recording quality is excellent – and titles include "Rio Rome", "Sailing Ice", "Milky Shade", and "New Moon". CD

Akira IshikawaBack To Rhythm ... CD
Sony/Mr Bongo (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Heavy funk from a hip Japanese combo – one that features lots of drums and percussion from leader Akira Ishikawa, plus plenty of guitar, keyboards, and hard-riffing horns! Akira's taking most of his cues here from American funk of the early 70s – work by Incredible Bongo Band, BT Express, and others – but he often serves up the music with a fair bit of conga work at the front of the arrangements, in a way that takes familiar tunes and gives them a much rootsier, earthier kind of groove! The approach is unique, but totally great – and the album's a funk album unlike anything else we can think of – quite unusual even for the experimental Japanese scene of the time. Titles include "Bongo Rock", "Pick Up The Pieces", "Do It Til You're Satisfied", "I've Got To Use My Imagination", "Let's Start", "Love Is The Answer", and "Boogie On Reggae Woman". CD

Nicole Mitchell & Moor MotherOffering – Live At Le Guess Who ... CD

Nicole Mitchell is an artist who made us sit up and say "wow" when we first saw her perform on the south side of Chicago 25 years ago – and she continues to make us express the same sort of surprise as the years go on – ever shifting her music, changing her focus, and continuing to get involved with really creative projects like this! The record is part of Mitchell's new sense of cosmic exploration – and features Nicole on flute and electronics, working alongside a lot more electronics from Moor Mother, who also delivers spoken passages on the album's all long tracks – which maybe make the whole thing come across like some Afro-Futurist blend of jazz, spoken word, and science fiction music – something that must have been amazing to see when it was performed live for this recording. Titles include "Up Out Of The Ugly", "Vultures Laughing", and "Prototype Eve". CD

Roscoe Mitchell Art EnsembleCongliptious (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Nessa, 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
We're not sure what "congliptious" means – but to us, it's always been the title of this excellent early session from reedman Roscoe Mitchell! The sessions here were recorded in 1968, at the Ter-Mar (Chess) Studios in Chicago – and they document a key coming-together of Chicago avant jazz talents – one that captures Mitchell with Lester Bowie and Malachi Favors in the years before better-known dates by the Art Ensemble of Chicago! The style here is somewhat similar to some of the best Delmark AACM sessions of the time – in that there's a hell of a lot of room for each player to open up individually – almost a recording style that takes off even more strongly from the individualist mode of the New York "new thing" generation – showing that Chicago could go one better by allowing each player completely unbridled space to express themselves. Malachi Favors solos on "Tutankhamen", Mitchell does an alto solo on "Thke", and Bowie plays alone on "Jazz Death" – while the trio of players comes together with percussionist Robert Crowder on the long number "Congliptious/Old" – a cool cut that almost links a Sun Ra aesthetic to the AACM. CD also features 4 bonus tracks – 3 takes of "Carefree", plus "Tatas-Matoes" – all cuts that originally appeared on the Art Ensemble 1967/1968 box set. CD

Wes MontgomeryWes Montgomery Trio (aka A Dynamic New Jazz Sound) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... $4.99
Wes Montgomery's first album as a leader – a relatively obscure set that has him playing in a trio with Indianapolis bandmates Mel Rhyne on organ and Paul Parker on drums – a mode that strongly recalls Montgomery's roots in the Indy scene at the time! If you only know the later, famous Wes Montgomery with bigger charts, you'll be surprised to hear him here in a cooking little combo – the kind of group that made Mel Rhyne a local Hammond hero in Indy, although it seemed to take decades for him to get any sort of larger recognition. The groove is straight and simple, but the real charm is Wes' chromatic lines on guitar – already quite distinctive among his contemporaries, and allowed ample room to express their voice in this setting. Titles include "Ecorah", "Missile Blues", "Too Late Now", "Jingles", and "Whisper Not". CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

Bruno NicolaiDefense De Savoir ... LP
RCA/Transversales Disques (France), 1973. Sealed ... $14.99
A cool little soundtrack from Bruno Nicolai – penned for a French film instead of an Italian movie – and with a sound that's a bit different than usual! Nicolai makes nice use of some sweeter themes here – a hint of the modes you might find in Michel Legrand or Francis Lai in the 70s – which lightens things up a bit at the start, before some darker, moodier moments creep into the mix – underscoring the film with some more traditional Giallo elements – those tense, spine-tingling styles that Bruno developed with his frequent partner, Ennio Morricone. There's some isolated piano and guitar lines that have a stark, scraping sort of feel – used to great effect on some of the more upbeat numbers – and a few standout bits have electric bass kind of rumbling up from the bottom, which creates a nice sense of urgency. Titles include "La Verite", "Le Pouvoir", "Theme De Juliette", "Sans Espoir", "Concert A La Cour", "Tango Express", and "Tourbillon Final". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare early work from Piero Piccioni – music scored for a 60s film with Alberto Sordi in the lead – maybe a bit more conventional than some of Piccioni's later work, but still wonderfully groovy overall! There's lots of jazz in the mix, and there's a number of tunes that have a great ear for unusual sounds and phrasing – including some very weird organ at some points, and what might actually be prepared piano on the main theme too – occasionally mixed with straighter strings, but never in a way that leans too much into drama or suspense! If you know some of Piccioni's jazzier work from the time, you'll get the vibe of this one – and titles include "Scorpio In Libra", "Organ Grinders", "Firestar Express", "Ay De Mi", "Racconti D'Amore", "Minor Eva", and "Piano Grinders Mamboso".

The band's relative obscurity is all the more surprising, given that it's the first band featuring glam rock trailblazer Suzi Quatro – with her sisters Patti, Nancy and Arlene in the lineup at one point or another, making this a bonafide sister act – along with equally roaring friends Pami Benford, Diane Baker, Darline Arone, Nan Ball and Nancy Rogers moving in and out of the lineup during the 1965-1968 run immortalized here. Raw, raucous and tuneful – really tremendous stuff!

No need to hold 'em here – as tenorist Stephen Riley is warmly fluid, right out of the gate – working in a loose trio formation that gives him a huge amount of space to express himself! Riley's got this crispy tone, but one that's also down to earth – able to hit modern moments, yet never too in love with itself to forget to swing – which Stephen does nicely in the company of Jay Anderson on bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums! There's a depth of tenor feeling that goes back to the early modern innovators – but the setting is also hipper than a straighter swing date, too – and without the piano, Riley really opens up tunes that include "Woody N You", "Hold Em Joe", "I Never Knew", "The Song Is You", "You've Changed", and "Three Little Words".

Lee RitenourCaptain's Journey/Feel The Night/Rio ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $10.99 19.99
Sweet fusion from the great Lee Ritenour – three classic albums on two CDs! First up is Captain's Journey – a masterful fusion set from guitarist Lee Ritenour – one that expands his sound a bit more than usual by adding in vocals on a number of tracks – but in a way that really gets at the mainstream soul influences that bubble through his jazz work! The set features key vocal appearances from Patti Austin, Tom Baylor, and Bill Champlin – all singers who really know how to respect the instrumental side of a tune, too – which is great, given that the record also features keyboards from Dave Grusin and Patrice Rushen too. Titles include "That's Enough For Me", "Sugarloaf Express", "What Do You Want", "Matchmakers", "Morning Glory", and "The Storm". Feel The Night is a key album from a time when Lee was still very much at the top of his game! Although tight overall, the album's never too commercial to be cloying – and Lee's approach here is a great example of the way that mainstream 70s fusion managed to balance all its best elements nicely – from soulful rhythms on the bottom, to sharp-edged solos on the top, to some of the smoother studio glue that holds the whole thing together in the middle! Ritenour plays a range of different guitars – and other players include Don and Dave Grusin on keyboards, plus keys from David Foster as well – plus saxes from Ernie Watts, piano from Joe Sample, and drums from Steve Gadd. Patti Austin sings a bit on the set, but the album's a mostly-instrumental affair overall – and titles include "Feel The Night", "Market Place", "Wicked Wine", "French Roast", and "Midnight Lady". Rio is smooth jazzy fusion from Lee Ritenour – a classic set that was originally only released in Japan, part of the underground Japanese Fusion movement of the late 70s, famous for groove hounds for that added level of soul that often wasn't showing up in American releases at the time! The album was recorded in both Rio and LA – with work by a mixture of Brazilian and American fusion players, including Chico Batera, Oscar Castro Neves, Alex Acuna, Don Grusin, Dave Grusin, Steve Forman, and Marcus Miller. Includes the smooth funk classic "A Little Bit Of This & A Little Bit Of That", plus the cuts "Simplicidad", "Rainbow", "Rio Funk", "San Juan Sunset", and "Ipanema Sol". CD

Salaam Remi's usually a key talent in the background for others – but here, he acts more like the leader in the spotlight – opening the door to a great array of talents, and really finding a way to express a powerful message over the course of the album! Remi's always had a great ear for a classic groove – we first fell in love with him for his James Brown tribute years ago – and here, he mixes classic funk, soul, and Afro-styled elements for contributions from Black Thought, Common, Busta Rhymes, Betty Wright, Bilal, Cee-Lo Green, Super Cat, Stephen Marley, and many others – digging into the past for a bold vision for a positive future.

A heavy package of work from the legendary Skyy – the funky club combo headed by Randy Muller after his work with BT Express and Brass Construction! With Skyy, Muller honed his groove even more than before – creating a really tight focus on bass-heavy bottoms, and focusing all instruments in the group into a solidly soaring sound that showed that funk was alive and well on the dancefloor – even well beyond the disco years – as you'll hear in this collection of work that not only includes Salsoul Records classics by Skyy, but also later work for Capitol and Warner too. The 2CD set really runs the gamut of Skyy sounds – and links their disco material with some great later 80s grooves too – on titles that include "The Groove Is Bad", "First Time Around (12" mix)", "Call Me", "Let's Celebrate (12" mix)", "Real Love", "Up & Over", "Start Of A Romance", "Givin It To You (12" special mix)", "Bad Boy (12" version)", "When You Touch Me", "Get Into The Beat", "Movin Violation", "Let Love Shine (12" version)", "You Got Me Up", "Love Plane", "Skyyzoo (12" mix)", "Fallin In Love Again", "Disco Dancin", and "Superlove".

Tracks are long, and build from an instrumental core first – often leaving out vocals entirely, as the grooves spin out with sweet keyboards, riffing guitar, and driving basslines – which open up to some excellent solos on tenor and trumpet, often with a vibe that echoes some of the South African jazz styles of the decade! But the vocals are nice, too – and come out especially strong on the album's classic "Oh Yeh Soweto" – a sweet ripoff of the Lamont Dozier track "Back To My Roots". Other tracks include "Saturday Express", "Got Me Tight", "Friday Night", and "Wind & Fire". CD

✨✧ Larry WilliamsThat Larry Williams – The Resurrection Of Funk ... LP
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A rare funk album from west coast legend Larry Williams – very different than his heavy R&B of the late 50s, or the brief soul comeback he had with Johnny Guitar Watson in the 60s – and instead a heavy groover with a trippy Cali sound! The record's got a sharp groove right from the start – a vibe that's a bit similar to some of the best Johnny Watson funk of the period – a slight jazzy undercurrent in the instrumentation, with wicked guitar and keyboard bits dancing around each other in the rhythms – often mixed with vocals that have a cool sort of electric feel, and topped with some great horn work from Fred Wesley on trombone and Maceo Parker on alto sax! Rudy Copeland plays keyboards on the album alongside Williams, the the set's got a bit of the feel of Rudy's lost Funky Blindman set – and in a way, also echoes the best strutting, sexy modes of Bootsy Collins too. The album's a surprising gem all the way through – a real lost chapter in Larry's career, and the kind of set that might have broken bigger, had he not died mysteriously a few years later. Titles include "Funky Force", "The Resurrection Of Funk", "One Thing Or The Other", "ATS Express", "How Can I Believe", and "Can't Dance To The Music (If It Ain't Got Funky Rhythm)".

Bob Stanley's given us some great collections on Ace Records before – often with Pete Wiggs, or as Saint Etienne – and this set continues the very special vibe of those sets, by bringing together cuts that we never would have thought would work so well otherwise – a sublime mix of soul, rock, and pop – all glowing together with the warm vibe of the summer of 1976!

A strange mix of Latin rhythms and exotica modes – served up here on a set of recordings from early 60s France that we might not have heard otherwise! Grooves are often in the cha cha mode promised in the title, but other instrumentation is definitely "au harem" – exotic woodwind passages, Mid East percussion, vocal bits, and more – almost as if the modes of Les Baxter and Martin Denny had been moved to the ancient world of Asia Minor! The approach is great – often very much in the late 50s styles used by Capitol and Liberty Records in the US – and titles include "Ismaila" by Benny Benett, "Inch Allah" by Fred Adison, "Danse Du Sud" by Zina Nahid, "Mahomet De Tunis" by Ali Baba Et Son Ensemble, "Oriental Express" by Roger Morris, "El Mechoi" by Los Cangaceiros, "Danse L'Amour" by Staiffi Et Ses Mustafas, and "On M'Appelle L'Oriental" by Trio Joroca.

✨✧ VariousFor Discos Only – Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records – 1976 to 1981 (3CD set) ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Rare singles from the glory days of the American club music scene – most of which were only issued as promo release – hence the "for discos only" in the title! The package looks at the wealth of material issued by the Fantasy and Vanguard family of labels in the late 70s – imprints that have never fully gotten their due, in comparison to companies like Salsoul or Philadelphia International – even though they made an equally huge contribution to the world of funky grooves! In fact, given that Fantasy owned Prestige and other jazz labels at the time, they also had a longer heritage in soulful music – which often made some of their singles these real mini-masterpieces in sound. Vanguard was equally unusual, but in a different way – as disco and club were relatively new to their catalog – which almost seemed to give them a freedom to be a bit more experimental than some of the bigger companies working the dancefloors. The result is a great collection of really creative, really upbeat material – almost all of which is nice and extended, and presented here on the rare 12" single versions. Titles include "Til You Surrender (special rmx)" by Rainbow Brown, "Rock Creek Park (rmx)" by The Blackbyrds, "No One Can Do It Like You (12" special Shep Pettibone rmx)", "Chill Out (12" version)" by Free Expression, "I Don't Know What's On Your Mind (special 12" mix)" by Spiders Webb, "Over & Over (special 12" disco)" by Sylvester, "Turn The Music Up (12" disco)" by Players Association, "Beat Of The Night (special 12" disco)" by Fever, "Party Vibes (special 12" disco)" by Ike Turner & Home Grown Funk, "You've Got Me Dancing In My Sleep (special remaster)" by Frisky, "Boogie City (special 12" disco mix)" by Phil Hurtt, "Space Bass (special 12" disco)" by Slick, "Mondo Man (12" version)" by Roni Griffith, "It's Music (special 12" disco)" by Damon Harris, "Always There (special 12" disco)" by Side Effect, "For Your Love (special 12" disco)" by Idris Muhammad, "Straight To The Bank (special 12" disco)" by Bill Summers, "Boogie With Me (12" disco)" by Poussez, "Don't Know What To Say" by The Blackbyrds, "I'm The One" by Rainbow Brown, "I Got The Feeling (Patrick Cowley megamix)" by Two Tons O Fun, "Dance (special 12" disco)" by Paradise Express, and "Savage Lover (12" disco long vocal)" by The Ring.

VariousLocal Customs – Cavern Sound ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.98
Some of the most underground sounds you could ever hope to hear – quite literally, as the music on the set was recorded in a subterranean studio based in a cavern in Missouri! We could go on making endless jokes about "hard rock" and things like that – but we'll quickly skip past the novelty of the recording to let you know that the collection is a treasure trove of rare gems from Kansas and Missouri at the time – really great little groups who have a lot more to offer than the usual garage combos or c-grade psych outfits – as plenty of these guys are more than tight and tuneful enough to have hit the charts at the time! There's some great undercurrents of bigger styles running through the music at points – including surprising horn parts, soulful vocal inflections, and a sense of arrangement that makes for some really well-conceived music all the way through – even though the range of groups is quite varied. We're betting you don't have any of these singles at home in your collection – and the set features titles that include "She's A Part Of Me" by The Dantes, "The King Was" by Jaded, "Fraight" by William Jones, "In My Grave" by The Reactions, "One Day Girl" by Burlington Express, "Mustache In Your Face" by Pretty, "You'll Know The Words" by Larry Sands & The Sound Affair, "Think Before You Leave" by Mulligan, and "I Wish It Hadn't Ended That Way" by Tide.

✨✧ VariousMainstream Soul Survey – Man Needs A Woman ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
A rare look at the soul music side of Mainstream Records – a label that's mostly known for its famous jazz fusion sides of the early 70s – but who also turned out a fair bit of great soul work as well! Most of the Mainstream soul tracks were only ever issued as 45s – making this collection even more valuable in the way that it scoops up countless bits of lost wax, and brings them together in a whopping 26 track package – much of which has never been reissued before! The titles here all originally appeared on the Mainstream, IX Chains, and Brown Dog label – and although Mainstream often had a reputation for tight production on its jazz, there's a nicely rough-edged feel to most of these numbers – styles that echo southern soul and New Jersey indie work from the same time. Equally important is the fact that many of these cuts represent obscure early material by artists who would score much bigger on later labels – a great help to filling in the cracks in their early careers. Titles include "You Can Be Cured", and "Take A Few More Steps" by Randolph Brown, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" and 'When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" by Jackie Beavers, "It's All In The Back Of Me Now" and "Everyone Has Someone" by Linda Perry, "Where Can I Run" by The Underground Express, "Call On Me" and "Intruder" by LJ Reynolds, "Down On Me" by Jeany Reynolds, "Satisfy My Woman" by Calvin Arnold, "Grass Ain't Greener" by Charles Beverly, "We Gonna Make It" by Roger Hatcher, "You Shot Me" by The Georgia Soul Twisters, and "Business Deal" by Doris Duke.

BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $34.99 36.99
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

TK/Solid (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
A soulful message from the 70s – served up here on a collection that focuses on a mighty nice side of the TK Records label from back in the day! TK hit big fame with its Miami spin on disco in the mid 70s, but the label also had a great ear for other sorts of soul music too – and here, the focus is on the warmer, more sophisticated modern soul tracks that marked their output away from the chart hits – work created in the south, but with a hip vibe that resonates strongly with the best work in New York, Philly, or other northern cities. The tracks are all hand-picked by DJ Ryuhei The Man – who also does his own edits of a few tracks – and the set also features some rare singles from artists who never recorded a full album for TK. Titles include "All This Love That I'm Givin" by Gwen McCrae, "I Like My Birdie" by Leno Phillips, "Keep Her Happy" by Phillip Wright, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "Bessie" by JBs Wedge, "It's Your Sweet Love" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "The Way We Life" by Raw Soul Express, "Where Is The Love" by Betty Wright, "Listen To My Heartbeat" by Little Beaver, "Human (Ryuhei The Man express 45 edit)" by Brief Encounter, "What Am I Gonna Do (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Reid Inc, and "Be With Me (Ryuhei The Man Miami 45 edit)" by Milton Wright.

Roundtable (Australia), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $32.99
A stunning discovery of Australian jazz in the 70s – and a long-overdue look at the deeper currents of that nation's overlooked scene! Aussie jazz is always pretty darn fantastic – inspired by the hippest American and European styles, but often something very much of its own – and that's definitely the case with the music here, which is part of a tradition on the scene to maybe open the music to more organic elements, sometimes in direct reference to the special natural qualities of the Australian continent – sometimes just with this sense of progression and overall vibe that's very distinct, and really beautiful. The set list is fantastic – key cuts from some of the most important artists and groups on the 70s scene – with titles that include "Exploration Of The Sun" by John Sangster, "A La Coltrane" by Jazz Co/Op, "Kate Did" by Galapagos Duck, "Wildflowers" by Brian Brown, "People Make The World Go Round" by Peter Gaudion's Blues Express, and "Sunflower" by Alan Lee.

Narroway, 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99 29.98
A fantastic set of gospel tracks from the 50s and 60s – one that definitely takes the Civil Rights theme in the title seriously, but in ways that are often a bit more subtle than you might expect! Gospel music was key to the strivings of under-represented Americans during these years – as the music was a place of rich cultural expression and unbridled righteousness – maybe a more spiritual place to express messages that would soon have more secular orientation, but no less force overall! The work here really helps you hear how more directly political soul music found its voice in the second half of the 60s – and the work often has group vocal interplay that rivals some of the best of the soul generation. Titles include "I'll Fight For The Right" by JM Bell & The Robinson Ensemble, "What Is Freedom" by Friendly Four, "I Cried" by Five Blind Boys Of Alabama, "I'm Watching & Waiting" by Myrtle Jackson, "Stand By Me" by Marie Knight, "Traveling To That City" by Harold Bowen Singers, "Take Courage" by Rosie Wallace, "I Heard The Voice" by Wooten Choral Ensemble, "Soon We'll Be Done" by Utterback Concert Ensemble, "Viet Nam" by Southern Bells, and "I'm Going To Walk Through The Streets" by Melody Kings. 27 tracks in all!

A massive collection of music from the Steeplechase label – spiritual sounds from back in the day, and a side of the label's legacy that's only gotten the right sort of appreciation in more recent years! Steeplechase was a European company, and their biggest claim to fame was recordings of American musicians overseas – especially Dexter Gordon – but the label also had a fantastic ear for more soulful currents on the American underground, and not only managed to capture some less-recorded artists, but also give some bigger names a freer space to express the more spiritual side of their styles! The set is a sublime set of work from the post-Coltrane years – tunes that are modal, soulful, and occasionally slightly funky – served up in a set of completely uplifting music, all supported by the usual excellent Jazzman attention to detail and thorough liner notes. Titles include "The Time Of This World Is At Hand" by Billy Gault, "Tipe Tizwe" by Jim McNeely, "Aida" by Rene McLean, "Dark Warrior" by Khan Jamal, "Naima" by Michael Carvin, "Magwaza" by Johnny Dyani with John Tchicai & Dudu Pukwana, "Ode To St Cecile" by Mary Lou Williams, "Jean Marie" by Sam Jones, "Miss Priss" by Ken McIntyre, and "De I Comahlee Ah" by Jackie McLean & Michael Carvin.

Fantastic! This set features reggae and rocksteady versions of American soul and funk tracks from the late 60s and early 70s – quite fitting, considering how much of Jamaican reggae began as an attempt to copy American hits for the local market. The set may well be the best-ever in the essential series of compilations by Soul Jazz Records – and like the others, it features some of the best cuts ever recorded for the Studio One catalog. There's a total of 18 cuts in all – and tracks include "Soulful Strut" by Sound Dimension, "Still Water" by Jerry Jones, "Express Yourself" by Leroy Sibbles, "Message From A Black Man" by The Heptones, "The First Cut Is The Deepest" by Norma Fraser, "Deeper & Deeper" by Jackie Mitoo, "I Don't Want To Be Right" by Alton Ellis, "No One Can Stop Us" by Willie Williams, "Queen Of The Minstrals" by The Eternals, "Don't Break Your Promise" by The Chosen Few, and "Is It Because I'm Black" by Senior Soul.

ABC/Big Pink (South Korea), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing work from the Blues Magoos – stretching way beyond their roots as a garage rock band! The album's free, open, with a really jazzy style that shows that these guys had been soaking up plenty of influences from the left end of the singer/songwriter spectrum – and had also been spending a lot of time learning how to play their instruments! At one level, the album's chock-a-block with hip tunes that veer into blue eyed soul territory – and at another, it's got some jazzy inflections that move into the mind-expanding territory reached by a rare few other rock/soul groups of the time. Percussion is wonderful on the set, and Pee Wee Ellis plays a lot of great sax on the set – and the real treat is excessive use of vibes, which makes for some cool sounds on a number of tracks. Includes the long groover "Can't Get Enough Of You", which features a great percussion breakdown in the middle – plus "Gulf Coast Bound", "Sea Breeze Express", "Magoo's Blues", "Tonight The Sky's About To Cry", and "Slow Down Sundown".

ESP/Word Beat, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever record to capture the amazing voice of William S Burroughs – the author who helped transform fiction forms in the 60s, but also somewhat of a public figure too – thanks to albums like this! The set's was recorded in France, and given wider circulation in the US by seminal indie ESP Records – and the record presents Burroughs reading from his important novels Naked Lunch and The Nova Express. There's less of the cutup and experimental recordings of other later Burroughs records – but given that the books were both written under the influence of those modes, even the reading of the text still has a very unusual quality – especially given the author's incredible voice.

The record has all the sense of pride, power, and optimism of some of the best sessions of this type from the 80s – that feeling that music can actually effect change, especially in the hands of artists like this – a very strong ensemble that features work from Corey Wilkes on trumpet, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Tomeka Reid on cello, Josh Ramos on bass, Samuel Williams on violin, and Dennis Winslett on alto sax! The record still has a sense of groove that you'd know from Kahil's smaller group records – imagine a Ritual Trio sense of rhythm with augmented elements – and the set mixes a few well-chosen covers with great originals. The set is dedicated to Bluiette – it was his last recording – and titles include "Prayers For The Unwarranted Sufferings", "Sketches Of An Afro Blue", "Express Yourself", "Freedom March", "That We Ask Of Our Creator", and "How Can We Mend A Broken Heart".

The sound here is all jazz all the way through – done in a lively, dancing, soaring groove that makes the album feel like a lost modal jazz classic on MPS or Saba – and which easily puts Hipnosis at the top of a very elite group of club jazz artists that include Sleepwalker and Nicola Conte! 2 of the album's tracks have female vocals – in a cool, breezy, Karin Krog-styled mode – but the bulk of the set is instrumental, and takes its energy from rhythmic piano and Fender Rhodes lines, rolling acoustic bass passages, and some especially great angular work on sax and trombone! There's an energy here that we totally love – and the album crackles with life from the very first note – and never ceases to delight as it rolls through a brilliant set of tracks that includes "Soul Search", "Mad Angel", "Opposite Of Hamburg", "Dewendiana", "Nova Express", "Carrousel", and "Nimm Mich Mit".

✨✧ Son HouseFather Of The Delta Blues – The Complete 1965 Sessions ... CD
Sony/Columbia, 1965. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great return to recording for Son House – a musician who'd stopped playing the guitar in the postwar years, but rose again to fame during the great folk blues revival of the 60s! The style here is every bit as classic as some of Son's earliest music – just recorded a lot better, too – with beautiful focus on the subtle inflections he brings to the strings of his acoustic guitar, and vocals that ring out a lot stronger than they might have on a 78. Titles include "John The Revelator", "Empire State Express", "Preachin Blues", "Sundown", and "Grinnin In Your Face". CD

✨✧ Ronnie Scott with Stan Tracey & Mark MurphyBBC Jazz Club 1964 to 1966 ... CD
1960s (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really wonderful music from British tenorist Ronnie Scott – working here in the very familiar setting of the BBC Jazz Club, one that's almost as comfortable for Scott as his own nite spot in Soho! The set presents three different performances recorded for radio – all with the great Stan Tracey on piano – working here at his Monkish best, which brings out a much more modern quality in Ronnie than you might expect if you only know his recordings from the late 50s! Vocalist Mark Murphy also appears on two tracks – again with a quality that is quite advanced, as his work on the UK scene in the 60s really helped Mark pave the way for the vocal advances he'd express in the 70s back in the US. Murphy sings on "Waltz For Debby" and "Music That Makes Me Dance/When She Makes Music" – and other titles include "Sweet Lotus Blossom", "Sweet & Lovely", "Close Your Eyes", "What's New", "The Night Is Young", and "I'll Be Seeing You".

✨✧ Nina SimoneWild Is The Wind/High Priestess Of Soul ... CD
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great 2-in-1 CD that combines two of Nina's best late 60s LPs! Wild Is The Wind was issued during the period when Nina Simone was being given more and more freedom to express herself in a unique way that blended jazz, soul, and folk into a very memorable style. The record features Nina's classic "Four Women", a haunting portrait of 4 different women, and the personal struggles they face. Other nice tracks include "Break Down & Let It All Out", "Either Way I Lose", "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", and "That's All I Ask". High Priestess is more classic Nina! The longer she recorded on Philips, the more freedom Nina was given to open things up (probably because of the success of her daring "Four Women" track) – and this record, cut later in her years at Philips, features Nina doing a great batch of tracks with a very righteous vibe. Titles include "Come Ye", "I Hold No Grudge", "I'm Going Back Home", "I'm Gonna Leave You", "Take Me To The Water", and "The Gal From Joe's". Also includes one of Nina's many great readings of "Work Song". CD

✨✧ Sound ExperienceBoogie Woogie ... LP
Buddah, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 70s ensemble funk classic from Sound Experience – one of the tightest large groups of the time! The group have a really full sound that's part Kool & The Gang and part horn-heavy BT Express – one that uses some really great work on sax, trumpet, and trombone – laid out over some tighter snapping rhythms that really come off wonderfully! The title tune on the set is worth the price of admission alone – as it's a mad-riffing funky tune with funky guitar and clavinet riffing away at the bottom, while the rest of the group goes mad over the top! And although the set was recorded at the legendary Sigma Sound studios – with help from a few Philly regulars – it's actually got a sound that's harder hitting and more funk-based than the usual Philly session of the time. Titles include "Boogie Woogie", "Got To Keep On the Move", "He's Looking Good and Moving Fast", "Sha Na Na Na Boom Boom", and "He Don't Really Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stigmato IncReality Check ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the better new albums we've heard from the Irma label in recent years – a blend of mellow beats, percussive influences, and sweet jazzy touches that recall the glory of the Italian scene in the early 90s! There's still an overall feel here that brings in a dance-oriented approach and which includes a number of uptempo tunes – but together, the tracks on the album still have enough jazzy elements to keep our ears happy. Titles include "Percussion Suite", "Begone", "Just For You", "I Can Hang", "Coppelia", "Tribal Express", "Strive To Be Happy", and "Reality Check". CD

✨✧ Clark TerryOut On A Limb With Clark Terry ... LP
Argo, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from Clark Terry – head and shoulders above most of his other work, with a sound that's probably only matched by his fine first LP for Emarcy. The record was cut during a batch of sessions that Argo put together in the late 50s – sessions that featured Paul Gonsalves and Jimmy Wood, both fellow Ellingtonians like Terry, and who also had albums come out under their own names during the sessions. The album is far more than just a bunch of small group Ellington material, though – as it swings with an edge that's as sharp as a razor, produced with a bit of roughness, and driving with a really rhythmic pulse. Tracks are short by very well handled – and titles include "Phlanges", "Daylite Express", "Blues For Daddy O's Jazz Patio Blues", "Clarke's Expedition", and "Trumpet Mouthpiece Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo with deep groove! Cover has a small bit of splitting on the bottom seam, and some light aging on back – but this is a nice clean copy overall.)

✨✧ VariousBackstreet Brit Funk Vol 1 – The UK's Finest Underground Soul, Jazz Funk, & Disco Compiled By Joey Negro ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really great look at an under-discovered scene, at least on our side of the Atlantic – the wealth of club and funk tracks from the UK scene at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – served up here by the great Joey Negro, who's given us more than a few great grooves of his own over the years! The sounds here are in more obscure territory than the earliest work by Incognito, but come from a similar vein – a real love of the best styles of American soul, funk, and club of the 70s – but served up in modes that are sometimes more underground, given the smaller circulation, and different cultural makeup of the British scene. A few grooves have some great electro touches, others have warmer jazzier instrumentation – and titles include "Summer Grooves" by Mirage, "Keep In Touch" by Freeez, "Trip To Your Mind" by Hudson People, "The Wiggle" by Stikki Stuff, "Zero One" by Surface Noise, "Sore Lip" by Ritual "Express" by 52nd Street, "Parisienne Girl" by Incognito, "Latin Dream" by The Antilles, "Bentley Boogie" by Ed Bentley, "I Wanna Dance" by The Cool Notes, "You Know Too Much" by MBT, "You Don't Care About Our Love (Joey Negro edit)" by China Burton, "No Secret Affair" by Style X, "Never Let You Go" by Savanna, "Orange Groves" by Ranson McKenzie & Friends, and "Better Things To Come (Joey Negro edit)" by Nigel Martinez.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- 2x10" ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two ultra-cool 10" records – both the size of a vintage 78, but each containing a dozen totally hip tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! The music here follows strongly in the great tradition of this excellent series – and like the rest, digs deep in the hinterland of the vintage vinyl single – to uncover some rare gems that run the gamut from early soul, to rock instrumentals, R&B, and lots of other recorded oddities! As you might guess from the Cramps-like title, there's a pretty upbeat, festive feel to the record – as raw sounds collide and provide a mighty great listen all the way through – from titles that include "Call My Name" by The Saints, "Begging" by Bo Toliver & His Timers, "Summertime" by Jamie Coe, "Midnight Express" by The Dawnbeats, "Tarantula" by The Storms, "Charge" by The Renegades, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Stop The Clock Rock" by The Creel Sisters, "Shake Baby Shake" by Celestine, "I'm Scared Of The Horrors Of The Black Museum" by Nightmares Jimmie Maddin Orchestra, "Here Lies My Love" by Mr Undertaker, and "The Whipmaster" by Don Johnston.
