BrownsBrowns Sing Songs From The Little Brown Church Hymnal/Our Favorite Folk Songs – Two Full Albums Plus Bonus 45 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Two fantastic early albums from The Browns – one of the greatest country harmony acts of all time! First up is Our Favorite Folk Songs – a set that maybe has a bit more of a stripped-down vibe than some of the other records by The Browns – stronger acoustic guitar, which is matched by the superb vocals of Jim Ed Brown and sisters Maxine and Bonnie! There's some slight traces of RCA production, but in keeping with the title, things are nicely and folksy – very up-close, which makes the vocals even more stunning – on titles that include "My Pretty Quadroon", "Pretty Wildwood Flower", "Columbus Stockade Blues", "John B Sails", "In The Pines", and "Down In The Valley". The Little Brown Church Hymnal has The Browns in the kind of spiritual territory that always served their vocals so well – often harmonizing with a slight bit of organ in the mix – never too churchy, but enough to evoke the spirit of songs – as the trio harmonize beautifully through "Just As I Am Without One Plea", "In The Garden", "An Evening Prayer", "Whispering Hope", and "When They Ring Those Golden Bells". CD also features bonus tracks – "Send Me The Pillow That You Dream On" and "You're So Much A Part Of Me". CD

John ColtraneMy Favorite Things ... CD
Atlantic, 1961. Used ... $3.99
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My Favorite Things" a million times – but it still blows our mind the way Coltrane hits this incredibly soulful modal groove, twisting and turning on soprano sax, always keeping things interesting, so that we're surprised that the cut's 13 minutes have gone by so quickly! The rest of the record's equally great – and the 3 other long cuts are "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Summertime" and "But Not for Me". As great today as when it was cut, and still one of Coltrane's most revelatory albums! With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. CD

John ColtraneMy Favorite Things – Graz 1962 ... CD
Hat Hut (Switzerland), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Fantastic material from an important early tour of Europe by the John Coltrane Quartet – tracks recorded in Graz, Austria – and a perfect example of the group as they were really beginning to stretch out and explore! At some level, the vibe here is like the famous first run of Village Vanguard sessions by Coltrane – but the sound shows just how much the players had opened up since the previous year – really tremendous work from the leader on both soprano sax and tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums! Coltrane's solos are long and freewheeling, with a beautifully exploratory, yet soulful vibe – and titles include "Mr PC", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and a great 24 minute take of "My Favorite Things".

Van McCoyMy Favorite Fantasy ... LP
MCA, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
An excellent album of smooth soul tracks, and maybe Van's best record of the 70s! The record shows Van sitting at the piano in an intimate setting – ala Barry White – and it's got a similar Love Unlimited Orchestra approach, with much large backing behind Van's voice, and a very full instrumental sound. Van sings lead vocals, which aren't always that great – but he more than makes up for it with some great piano and keyboard work, and some wonderful soul songwriting and arranging that recall his best uptown moments of the late 60s. The record has a few uptempo hustle-type tracks, but they're all pretty darn great soul songs, and there's loads of great mellow soul moments woven in to make the record a nice album of ballads and groovers. Titles include "Before & After", "Wings Of Love", "My Favorite Fantasy", "That's The Story Of My Life", and "You're So Right For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Phillippe Saisse Acoustique TrioMy Favorite Songs ... CD
441, 2003. Used ... $2.99
Wonderful work from a real up-and-comer – a bright young jazz artist who seems to get better and better with each new record! Philippe Saisse takes his "acoustic" tag here with a grain of salt – as the French keyboardist also plays Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer organ, and vibes on the set – leaving the real acoustics to the wonderful bass and drum work of the rhythm section. The distinction is a strong one, though – as the album's one of Saisse's first to not feature a lot of extra production and studio work – and instead has the keyboardist stretching out in territory that's extremely warm and soulful. As the title implies, the tunes are some of Saisse's favorites – both older covers and standards, plus some very nice original tunes. 2 tracks feature vocals by Nneka Morton – and titles include "Song For Jun", "Alone Again Naturally", "I'm Not In Love", "Poem For 15", "Michelle", "Once", "Song For Saisse", and "About Time".

Dwight DruikTanger ... LP
Bobinason/Favorite (France), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Cool Canadian vocals from Dwight Druick – a singer who works in French with a very soulful sound overall! The album's partly got the feel of some of the best compressed crossover work of the US scene of the mid 70s – but it's also got a jazzier feel overall too, one that brings a slight dose of fusion into the grooves and deepens the sound nicely – helping push Druick's lyrics into territory that stretches out spaciously – a bit in the territory of the best 70s work by Michael Franks, Ben Sidran, Kenny Rankin, and other hip singers who veer somewhat from straight jazz, soul, or pop. Instrumentation is heavy on keyboards and guitar, but also includes some nice vibes too – and titles include a great remake of "Georgy Porgy", plus "Prends Ton Temps", "Tanger", "Voudou", "Un Seul Visage", "Ouvre Tex Yeux", and "Quand Tu Te Laisses Aller". CD also features an extended disco version of "Georgy Porgy". LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), 2018. Used ... $6.99
A great little album from French singer Pat Kalla – an artist whose "Super Mojo" here is really the genius of producer Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart! The set is a collaboration between Pat and Patchworks – and uses the great vocals of Kalla to bring new focus to the kind of warm clubby grooves we've always loved on a Patchworks record – maybe a mix of Afro funk and underground club – all with a very vintage vibe! The rhythms are tight and focused, with maybe some Antilles elements too – and titles include "Ca Va Aller", "La Terre", "Ballade De Nuit", "Lady Angola", "Ancien Combattant", "Laissez Moi Danser", "Madiba", "Pygmee", and "African Disco".

Favorite (France), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautiful debut from this hip French group – a quartet that features piano and arrangements by Florian Pellissier, who we've loved on his other records – plus Yoann Loustalot on flugelhorn, Theo Girard on bass, and Malick Koly on drums – really stretching out here at a session recorded at the legendary Rudy Van Gelder studio! The mix of flugelhorn and piano is great – used spaciously, with really well-punctuated notes from Loustalot – balanced with bolder work from Pelissier on piano and a bit of Fender Rhodes – on a set of all original material that has a wonderfully fresh feel. There's a slightly spiritual current to the music, but the overall sound is maybe more in the territory of 70s soul jazz – sophisticated, but very down to earth too – on titles that include "Custom Agents", "Riot In Chinatown", "Jazz Traficantes", and the three part "Mexican Junkanoo" suite. CD also features the bonus track "Noche En La Carcel". CD

A sweet 80s groove from Brazil – a self-released set by George Sauma Jr, a singer who works in some nicely soulful territory throughout! In a way, the vibe here is a bit like the Marcos Valle albums of the early 80s – elements of modern soul and boogie in the rhythms, but given a very different spin with the Portuguese lyrics, and the phrasing that Sauma brings into the music – served up at a level that's leaner than Valle, but still very groovy – in a warmly-tripping, mellow midtempo way! Titles include "Ceu Azul", "Presente Ausente", "Ideal De Carnaval", "Nao Vai Dar", "Dancar Ou Se Render", "Por Voce Soul Capaz De Morrer", "Voce O Tempo Todo Para Mim", and "Tudo Terminou". CD

Voilaaa (Patchworks)Voicii ... LP
Favorite (France), 2021. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 34.99
We've loved the music of Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart in all its many forms for years – but over time, this Voilaaa project might well be our favorite – as it really gives Patchworks a way to blend past and present, while also reaching out over the space of the globe! As before, there's plenty of elements borrowed from older African styles – but they're not just taken as style or flourish, as Patchworks has a very collaborative spirit, and works with a bit array of guests who really expand the sound with their contributions – which are especially strong on the vocal tip! In a way, it's almost as if Bruno's revived that important 70s tradition in Paris – where musical talents would head north from older colonial scenes, and find great opportunities to experiment with new sounds in the studio. That's definitely the case here – on a great batch of tracks that include "Faut Pas", "Tu Mens Devant Moi", "Mbaal Mu Teer", "Bene Bene", "Assia", "Manu Ecoute CA", "Tenor Jam For Manu", "Francois Va Te Laver", and a remake of "Water Get No Enemy".

Sweet sounds from way beyond the American scene – a range of tracks from global sources, but which are tied to some of the best soulful styles of the Cali scene of the 70s! Don't think the AOR in the title means that these cuts are all commercial hits – as they're well-produced, but much hipper than that – maybe instead the kind of work that's inspired by the best modes in 70s soul and fusion, set to really catchy rhythms, with great vocals in the lead – all wrapped together with a production style that really makes the whole thing sparkle! We're hearing most of these tracks for the first time – which makes the collection an especially great treat to our ears – and titles include "Kailua" by Esperanto, "You Never Know" by Rhapsody, "Til Mornin Comes" by The Ferry Brothers, "I Need You" by Mark Williamson, "What It's Meant To Me" by Jonathon Hansen, "Don't Take It Away From Me" by Westside, "What You Do To Me" by Sugar Cane, and "J'Irai Squatter Ton Coeur" by Didier Makaga.

Sweet Latin fusion from Sacbe – a Mexican group, but one who work with some of the best elements of the Brazilian jazz scene of the time – long-flowing lines, nicely complex rhythms, and a very organic sense of balance between the acoustic and electric instruments in the group! These guys are never too jamming, but always keep things tight – but tight, and not slick or commercial – as the set maintains the best vibe of the indie label electric jazz work of the time, and stays very far from the traps of modern mainstream fusion in the 70s! Players include Eugenio Toussaint on keyboards and arrangements, Alejandro Campos on soprano sax and tenor, Enrique Toussaint on bass, and Fernando Toussaint on drums and percussion – and the set features work from other guest players as well.

Vocals shift from track to track – and include contributions from Hawa, Cindy Pooch, Celia Kameni, and Sabba MG – but the whole thing has a wonderfully unified vibe – warm, soulful, jazzy, and very very groovy. Titles include "Teasing Me So Bad", "Tears Keep On Falling", "Gabriel", "The Time Is Now", "Plenty Loads Of Loving", and "One Night". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFrench Disco Boogie Sounds – 1975 to 1984 – Selected By Charles Maurice ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! The work here is from the obscure French disco underground – a European scene that never got the same exposure as German or Italian work for clubs – which makes the whole package a really great discovery in sound! The music is surprisingly fresh, and often quite funky too – and done in modes that are arguably warmer and more soulful than most other European disco – and often a lot like the best American underground club of the period. Some tracks have breathy female vocals, while others have bolder lyrics that almost echo some of the global musical crossovers happing in 70s Paris and a few of the later tracks bring in electro elements, but in a subtle way we totally love. The collection's a follow-up to the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation – and like that one, it's really a cut above the usual! Titles include "Super Star" by Contessa, "Lady Jones" by Over Drive, "Music Madness (ext Charles Maurice version)" by Beckie Bell, "Y'A Du Blues" by Marche Noire, "Un Fait Divers & Rien De Plus (re-remix)" by Le Club, "Pour Moi Ca Va (Charles Maurice version)" by France Lise, "Polar (Charles Maurice version)" by Bernard Guyvan, and "Minuit L'Heure Du Swing" by Didier Makaga.

A great release by this really unique combo – a Brazilian group, but one who are equally interested in the African roots in their music – but in ways that are completely different than any other contemporary act we can think of! Camarao Orkestra aren't one of those Fela-styled Afro Funk combos that have popped up on nearly every scene around the globe in recent years – and instead, the music here is this really beautiful blend of Brazilian percussion, warmer production styles, and some deeper modes borrowed from the other side of the Atlantic – all fused together with instrumentation that's live, spontaneous, and never overproduced – in ways that really take us back to some of the best Brazilian musical experiments of years past! As part of that, the group take on one of the key tunes from the Afro Sambas project of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes – "Canto De Imenja" – and move into their own tunes on other tracks that include "Canto Da Bahia", "Dia De Verao", "Nacao Africa", "Copacabana", and "Guerreiro Yoruba".

An album with a really beautiful title – a reference to "My Favorite Things", perhaps – and one that's got a sound that's equally beautiful to match – very different than some of the noisier music we've heard from Eivind Aarset in the past! Yet as with all his other great records, there's a real sense of abstraction here – as Eivind plays guitar, bass, and adds in plenty of electronics – next to work from Jan Bang on a range of samples, programs, and editing – a sense of sound that's layered, sometimes densely, but never darkly – almost taking us back to EG Records territory right at the end of the 70s. The set features a few guests along the way – Nils Petter Molvaer plays trumpet on one track – but most tunes are quite spare, and very lovely. Titles include "Before The Wedding", "Two Days In June", "Purplebright", "Asphalt Lake", "Monochrome", and "Night Spell". LP, Vinyl record album

Black Saint (Italy), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 8CDs ... $36.99
Some of our favorite albums ever from pianist Muhal Richard Abrams – an amazing run of eight records for the Black Saint/Soul Note label – rich in fresh colors, tones, and new musical ideas! There's a sensitivity to some of these records that you don't always get with Abrams – a personal feeling that brings in a much-needed warmth to his complex compositional forms – often in collaboration with other players on the Chicago scene, but also with a wider range of avant players, especially from New York – where Abrams would have a great influence in the 80s. The lineup of musicians here is wonderful – a virtual who's-who of the jazz left at the time, at least from an American perspective – with performances from George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell, Amina Myers, Thurman Barker, Baikida Carroll, Andrew Cyrille, Craig Harris, Stanton Davis, Marty Erlich, Dick Griffin, Cecil Bridgewater, Fred Hopkins, Dierdre Murray, and so many others. The set features 8 full albums, each in a tiny LP-styled sleeve – and titles include Siphumonesty, Mama & Daddy, Blues Forever, Rejoicing With The Light, View From Within, Hearinga Suite, Blu Blu Blu, and Think All Focus One.

Amazing work from singer Dee Alexander – a wonderfully soulful album of jazz vocals, and one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite records by Carmen Lundy or Dee Dee Bridgewater! Dee's a singer who's worked in Chicago for years, but we've honestly only begun to appreciate her talents of late – possibly because she's really hipped up her sound a lot over the years, picking up a range of spiritual, soulful influences that push her music to a whole new level – as you might have heard on her recent collaboration with IG Culture. The music on the set is wonderful too – work by Chicago players we know, but have never heard this strongly before – grooving in modal and soulful modes behind Dee's great vocals, with a lineup that includes Miguel De La Cerna and Michael Logan on piano, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Leon Joyce on drums and percussion. Titles include versions of two tunes by AACM member Henry Huff – "Live" and "You & I" – plus the Alexander originals "Long Road Ahead", "Rossingnol", "Butterfly", and "C U On The Other Side". CD

Tunes shift easily between instrumentals and vocal numbers – always with some over the top touches that sets them apart from the run of the mill – and titles include "Broken", "Fabric", "Anaconda", "Neighborhood Science", "Get Yourself Together", and "I Can Be".

Mariana Aydar's really blowing our mind since the last time we heard her on record – stepping forth here with her deepest, most complex material ever – an album as rich in sounds and styles as some of our favorite Brazilian material from the 70s! There's this confidence to the presentation that's completely genre-transcendent – that feel of making new musical space we loved in the Tropicalia era, and the MPB generation of the 70s – a mode that few other Brazilian singers, especially female ones, can match this well these days. The record speaks volumes on its own – so much so that we'd be daft to try to pin it down with just a few words – but we can definitely say that once you hang on for the ride, Mariana got plenty of places to take you through the course of the set. Titles include a great remake of "Nine Out Of Ten", plus "Galope Rasante", "Floresta", "A Saga Do Cavaleiro", "Solitude", "Vinheta Da Alegria", "Cavaleiro Selvagem", and "Porto". CD

Roy AyersVirgin Ubiquity – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1981 ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
It's like a dream come true – 13 previously unissued recordings by Roy Ayers, all from the height of his glory years on Polydor! Roy's work from this time is some of our favorite ever – a burning blend of jazz, soul, and funk – handled with impeccable charm, and a level of soul that few other artists of the time ever matched. Roy's genius was strongly documented at the time by a series of excellent Polydor albums – but there was also a heck of a lot of great material that never saw the light of day, and which is every bit as great as the classics that we've come to know and love over the years. Hearing this set is incredible – like upping our already-massive appreciation of Roy's talents, and like finding a lost corner of soul music history that nobody's ever heard before. The tunes are all amazing – a great blend of jazzy soul, mellow soul, and dancefloor groovers – and the package is only the tip of the iceberg, from what we've been told! The full album does a great job to not cross over too much with the 12" singles previously issued in this "Virgin" series – and titles include "What's The T", "I Really Love You", "Sugar", "Mystery Of Love", "Green & Gold", "Brand New Feeling", "I Did It In Seattle", "I Just Wanna Give It Up", "Together Forever", "Boogie Down", "I Am Your Mind", and a great alternate version of "Mystic Voyage"!

Baby HueyBaby Huey Story – The Living Legend (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Curtom/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of all types – working in a party-styled blend of funk, rock, and soul that was one of the most powerful grooves going down in the Windy City at the time! Huey sadly passed away at a very young age, leaving only this full album as his legacy – a great batch of hard-hitting soul tracks that are among some of the funkiest work ever recorded for the legendary Curtom label! The set includes Huey's classic version of "Mighty, Mighty", a club favorite from the live shows – plus the excellent Curtis Mayfield tune "Hard Times", famous as an oft-used sample track! Other titles include "A Change Is Going To Come", "California Dreamin", "Running", and "Mama Get Yourself Together". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion! The album is full of non-stop drums and piano grooves, and it's a mostly uptempo treat all the way through. Milton B tipples his way across the tops of the drums in an amazingly light fashion, yet still manages to kick on the rhythm all the way through. The hard piano sound and Milton B's beats and rhythms made this album a legend – and really cleared the way for so many great bossa albums to come. Amazing! 12 tracks including "Aruanda", "Ora Bolas", "Encanto Triste", and "Improviso", "A Resposta", "A Resposta". CD

✨✧ Billy BangRainbow Gladiator ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1981. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Proof again that Billy Bang is one of our favorite jazz musicians to ever pick up a violin – because Bang has a way of handling the instrument that opens up into grooves unlike anyone else! The set's got a beautifully flowing, almost spiritual sound at times – one that has Bang getting some great energy out of a quintet that features Charles Tyler on alto and baritone sax, Michelle Rosewoman on piano, Wilbur Morris on bass, and Dennis Charles on drums. The title track has a wonderfully modal groove – and other numbers follow with a similar pulsing energy – one that's richly soulful, and makes the album a real Soul Note standout for the time. Titles include "Rainbow Gladiator, which runs for over 14 minutes – plus "Ebony Minstrel Man", "New York After Dark", "Broken Strings", "Yaa Woman Born On Thursday", and "Bang's Bounce".

George Benson & Jack McDuffGeorge Benson/Jack McDuff (New Boss Guitar of George Benson & Hot Barbeque) ... CD
Prestige, 1964/1965. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
A double-length package of organ/guitar greatness – and a set that features key 60s work by Hammond hero Jack McDuff and guitarist George Benson! First up is The New Boss Guitar Of George Benson – the first album ever cut by Benson as a leader, a cooker of a soul jazz set, recorded back when George was the guitarist in Jack McDuff's classic 60s quartet! The album's almost a McDuff Quartet one – since Jack's on Hammond and Red Holloway is on tenor – but the group's slightly different too, with the surprising additions of Montego Joe on drums, and Ronnie Boykins on bass! Benson's guitar is amazing throughout – sharp-edged and played with a tightness that's quite different than most of his later work – and titles include "Shadow Dancers", "The Sweet Alice Blues", "Just Another Sunday", "Easy Living", and "Rock A Bye". Next up is Hot Barbeque – one of our all-time favorite albums from Brother Jack McDuff! The combo here is great – with a young George Benson hard-wailing on guitar, cutting lines so fast and furious it's hard to believe – especially if you only know his later work. The legendary Joe Dukes is on drums – dancing all over the place under Brother Jack's great groovy solos – and Red Holloway completes the group on tenor sax! The title track's got a rare vocal refrain – with Jack shouting out "Hot Barbeque" over the organ – and other cuts include "Briar Patch", "Hippy Dip", "601 1/2 North Poplar", and "The Three Day Thang".

Transcontinent/Traffic, 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A lost bit of ensemble funk from the end of the 70s – served up in a mix of bass-heavy club and boogie styles! The group have a rolling groove that's a bit like some of the work by Instant Funk or other clubby funk acts – but the overall feel is a bit tighter and more small group-oriented, even though the end result is as tight and professional as anything coming out on some of the bigger labels at the time – making for a great mix of indie and mainstream funky club styles! Our favorite cuts may actually be the mellower ones – which have some great soul harmonies – but even the uptempo tracks are pretty nice, with a strong Philly-inspired sound overall – and titles include "Postcard Love Affair", "My Fantasy", "Push", "There You Go", "Fantasize", "I Judge The Funk", and "You're Always on My Mind".

Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 34.99 On June 4, 2021
One of our favorite albums ever from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – but a set that was unreleased by Blue Note for quite a few years! The set's one of two gems the group recorded in 1961, but which were held back until the end of the 60s – and it features a stellar version of the group with Wayne Shorter on tenor, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Bobby Timmons on piano – all wonderful players who were really coming into their own at the time, and starting to bring a richness to the Messengers sound that would leave its mark in jazz for many years to come! The group is razor-sharp on the rhythms, but also really able to take new chances with their phrasing and timing – on a host of wonderful tracks that include "Those Who Sit & Wait", "The Witch Doctor", and "A Little Busy" – all real classics from this special group.

Epic/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
Amazing solo work from ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone – his first album after parting ways with his former group – and one of our favorite albums of all time! Blunstone's vocals were already amazing in The Zombies – especially near the end – but this set takes things even further, by blending his sublime lyrics with spare arrangements that often just feature simple string passages and warm piano parts – subtle accompaniment that leaves Colin strongly in the lead! The songs are wonderful – penned to recall the changes and issues of the year after the parting of the group – with plenty of help from old buddies Rod Argent and Chris White too. There's never been another record like this again, and there never will be – one of the true treasures of the greatest generation of music!

David BowieAladdin Sane (45th anniversary silver vinyl pressing) ... LP
Virgin, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
One of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul".

Marion BrownCapricorn Moon To Juba Lee (Marion Brown Quartet/Juba-Lee) ... CD
Ezz-Thetics/Hat Hut (Switzerland), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A CD that brings together some important early work from altoist Marion Brown – two long tracks from the sessions for his Quartet album on ESP – and a later album issued only overseas! The set begins with the long tracks "Capricorn Moon" and "Mephistopheles" from Marion Brown Quartet – one of our favorite albums ever on the legendary ESP label – a rhythmic, soulful, early session by Marion Brown – recorded before his own albums on Impulse, but with a similar feel to the best new thing sessions of that label at the time! The group is superb – with Benny Maupin on sax, Alan Shorter on trumpet, Rashied Ali on drums, and Ronnie Boykins on bass, often playing in tandem with Reggie Johnson – for a unique double-pulsing feel that makes for a nice rhythmic thrust. Next are the tracks "Juba Lee" and "Iditus", from the album Juba Lee – brilliant work from Marion Brown – one of his first albums, and a great set of tracks that have a fragile New York avant style – almost ESP, but not as raw, and with the kind of soulful emotion that's always made Brown's work stand out from the rest of his crowd. The group on the album is a septet, with Beaver Harris on drums, Dave Burrell on piano, Bennie Maupin on tenor, Alan Shorter on trumpet, and Grachan Moncour III on trombone. CD

One of our favorite albums ever from the great guitarist Kenny Burrell – a smoking live session, and one that's got a bit more of an edge than some of his other records from the time! Kenny's guitar still has that impeccable tone throughout – but it's also matched by some wonderful tenor from the great Tina Brooks – making one of his few key Blue Note appearances here – in a massively cooking group that also features some piano from Bobby Timmons on three of the album's five tracks (Roland Hanna plays on the two others) – plus drums from Art Blakey, and bass from Ben Tucker – a pair wo work together wonderfully to create some really great grooves. Kenny himself seems to pick up great energy in the setting – and titles include "Lady Be Good", "Birk's Works", "36-23-36", and "Hallelujah". CD

✨✧ CameoUgly Ego/Secret Omen ... CD
Chocolate City/Robinsongs (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A pair of killers from Cameo – both from their legendary late 70s run! Ugly Ego is one of our favorite albums ever from Cameo – the group's third release! The album's got a great approach that hints at more sophisticated soul styles, but which is still firmly in charge of the bass-driven grooves that made their early albums so great – a compressed approach to the music that was copied by countless other groups at the time, but rarely came off this well! The whole thing's great – filled with excellent cuts that include "I'll Be With You", "Give Love a Chance", "Ugly Ego", "Two of Us", "Friend to Me", "Insane", and "I Want You". Super-dope – with loads of great jams! Secret Omen is a sweet stunner from Cameo – a set that's got the group working with an even tighter, more on the money sound than before – yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial! These guys were one of the first to push the big ensemble funk sound into a leaner approach, and they really live up to that legacy here – impeccably fusing bass, drums, and everything else together – in a groove that lived far beyond disco, really influenced both hip hop and house, and which makes the album one of their real lasting treasures. Groovers include "Macho", "Find My Way", "Energy", and "I Just Want To Be" – and the album also includes the guitar-funk jammer "The Rock", and the stellar stepper "Sparkle" – which is one of our favorite Cameo cuts ever!

The set starts with one of the most wonderful tunes Betty's ever written – "30 Years", a lightly grooving number told from the perspective of a woman who's losing her man after three decades of love, and which is carried off with a level of sincerity and soul that's simply incredible. The album also features a remake of Betty's classic "Open The Door", entitled "Open The Door '90", and featuring solos by Freddie Hubbard and Craig Handy. The whole thing's great, though – and other tracks include "What's The Use Of Wonderin", "Droppin Things", "I Love Music", and "Dull Day In Chicago". CD

Gene ChandlerBrunswick Complete Singles Collection ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work from our favorite stretch of music from the legendary Gene Chandler – an artist who started out on Vee Jay Records, but really hit his prime here at Brunswick! Chandler was a key singer in the early years of soul – and some of his first recordings had strong appeal to doo wop and R&B crowds – but by the time of this set, Gene was really moving into some more mature, more sophisticated styles – an approach that easily rivals that of Chicago soul contemporaries Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson! Chandler's often a bit more upbeat and swinging than either of those – especially Jackson – but here, he shares a similar open, emotive quality – much more adult than before, and delivered with a confidence that's very different than earlier weepy pop. A number of cuts here are duets with the great Barbara Acklin – and titles include "Will I Find You", "Show Me The Way To Go", "The Girl Don't Care", "Love Won't Start", "There Was A Time", "Teacher Teacher", "Anywhere But Nowhere", "This Bitter Earth", "Familiar Footsteps", "My Love", "There Goes The Lover", and the sublime "Suicide" – maybe one of our favorite Gene Chandler tracks ever!

Westbound (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A long-overdue look at the amazing Clark Sisters – a fantastic gospel group, and one with a vocal depth that we'd put right up there next to any of our favorite soul acts of the time! The Clarks are maybe best known for their landmark track "You Brought The Sunshine" – a completely righteous blend of gospel, soul, and disco that crossed over very big back in the day – but the group have an endless amount of great music to offer, a great deal of which is brought together in this wonderful set! The sisters always kept a strong ear towards the secular soul styles of their day – but they also always pushed things with the sort of amazing vocal interplay that used to only be the territory of male gospel groups in earlier decades – fantastic harmonies, soaring leads, and really great group formation. And if you're not a completely huge fan of gospel, don't worry – because the message here is often a more general one of positivity, which really lifts up the spirit of the tunes in a universal way. Titles include "You Brought The Sunshine (single edit)", "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright", "He Keeps Me Company", "Patience", "I'm Going To Have Just What I Want", "Power", "Overdose Of The Holy Ghost", "My Mind Is Made Up", "Nothing To Lose All To Gain", "No Other Name", "Keep On Looking Up", and "I Found What I'm Looking For".

The album's mostly a spare batch of tracks cut by Alice and her trio with Ron Carter and Ben Riley – but also features some guest work on sax by Joe Henderson and Pharoah Sanders on a few tracks. Pharoah and Joe blow with beautiful post-Coltrane spirituality on the tracks "Ptah The El Daoud" and "Mantra" – but equally great is the beautiful spare piano cut "Turiya & Ramakrishna" – an incredible tune that has Alice playing with a soulfulness you'd hardly expect! A real treasure all the way through – and the kind of album that ranks with the best in the Impulse catalog! CD

The core group features Alice on piano, organ, and harp – alongside Frank Lowe on saxes, Reggie Workman on bass, Leroy Jenkins on violin, and Ben Riley on drums. Added to this combo is a much larger set of strings – swirling around in a rich musical backdrop that gives Alice's work a sense of majesty and power we could have never imagined. This is the album that really showed the world that she was far far more than just the wife of the late great one – a true mystical visionary with a sound that demanded to be heard! Side 2 features a recitation by Alice's spiritual mentor, Swami Satchdiananda – and the album features a wonderful version of "My Favorite Things", done with both organ and harp, plus the tracks "Love Supreme", "Galaxy In Turiya", and "Galaxy In Satchidandana".

A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – but which still has some of the depth of soul that John Coltrane brought to his more experimental work on Impulse Records! The album's a classic introduction to the music of Trane – and maybe is tied more closely to the spirit of some of his work on Atlantic Records, and makes a nice bridge between the two bodies of work – as the Great One takes on older jazz tunes, but really transforms them, thanks in part to the sublime work of Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and McCoy Tyner on piano. The album's completely solid all the way through – and although it won't change your life as much as A Love Supreme, it will show what a fantastically strong player Coltrane was, in any sort of setting!

Fantastic work from a key year in the evolution of the John Coltrane sound – and live material that really shows just how much the group was opening up away from the studio! We love Coltrane's Impulse records from this year to death, but live performances also really illuminate the growing genius of the group and their sense of expression – heard first here in a set of three tracks from Newport (not the same as on the Impulse live album) – by a group that features McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and a surprising Roy Haynes on drums. Coltrane blows tenor and soprano – and titles include a 17 minute version of "My Favorite Things", an 15 minute take on "Impressions", and an 8 minute reading of "I Want To Talk About You". Next are more tracks recorded at Birdland in 1963 – with the classic quartet stretching out on "Afro Blue", "I Want To Talk About You", and "The Promise" – and doing two studio versions of "Alabama" and "Your Lady".

The set finds Coltrane plus McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on the kit working in a far more adventurous guise than many of the 60s studio sessions – stretching out incredibly on the half hour epic workout "One Up, One Down" and a beautifully loose run of "Afro Blue". The stylistic themes are carried through similarly on the second disc's long grooving "Song Of Praise" and an amazing "My Favorite Things", but stretching near or past the 20 minute mark.

Fontana/Sam Records (France), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... About September 15, 2021
One of our favorite-ever Miles Davis albums – and a groundbreaking soundtrack that forever changed the way that jazz music was used in film! According to legend, the sounds here were recorded by Miles on a hot Paris night – late in the studio, after a live performance – in a very intimate setting that had he and the combo creating these little poetic passages along with the action in the film! In addition to sublime and moody muted trumpet from Miles – the small group also features tremendous tenor work from the great Barney Wilen – a French modernist who's at the height of his powers – and beautiful bass from Pierre Michelot, whose rich tones really frame the whole proceedings. The rest of the group features bop pianist Rene Urtreger and American drummer Kenny Clarke – but the real charm comes from the interplay between Wilen, Davis, and Michelo. Titles include "Florence Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "L'Assassinat De Carla", "Diner Au Motel", "Evasion De Julien", "Nuit Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "Le Petit Bal", "Au Bar Du Petit Bac" and "Sur L'Autoroute".

Titles include the amazing "Iris", one of Miles' most haunting themes – plus "Little One", "RJ", "ESP", "Mood", and "Agitation". CD

Sam Records (France), Mid 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... About September 15, 2021
Amazing music by one of our favorite saxophone players of all time – captured here at the height of his 60s genius on the European scene! The tracks here have never been issued at all – but stand as a perfect complement to the killer MPS/Saba albums by Nathan Davis – and are served up with a similar blend of soulful hardbop and modernist edges – qualities that are already present in the fantastic phrasing of Davis on tenor and flute, pushed even further by the equally great work of French piano legend Georges Arvanitas! Although Arvanitas could be out when he wanted, he could also swing like the best of them – and his pairing with Davis here is perfect, and really brings out both the soul and edge in both players – especially in the company of George's fantastic rhythm duo of Charles Saudrais on drums and Jacky Samson on bass. The set's full of other surprises, too – including a bit of organ from Arvanitas, and an appearance by Jack Dieval – and the whole thing is beautifully recorded by French Radio. Tracks are all long – and include "Mid Evil Dance", "Blues For Southeast Asia", "The Hip Walk", "Rules Of Freedom", "A5", "The Thing", "Love Ye The Neighbor", "Nathalie's Dance", and "Yesterdays" in both flute and tenor versions.

One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! There's a very intimate feel to the record – almost as if Francois is performing most of the sounds in the studio himself – balancing a guitar line with a keyboard fill, a bowed bass bit with drums, soaring strings with trumpet, and so on – occasionally hitting some funky touches that really keep things interesting – and which makes some of DeRoubaix best work on a par with the genius of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Titles include "The Countess Kiss", "Phantom Organ & Piano", "Pursuit On The Dunes Of Ostend", "Accident & Cymbalum", "Love On The Rails", "Red Lips", "Ballad In Bruges", and "The Dunes Of Ostend Flagellation". Also features two bonus tracks not used in the film – "Dracula 68 Woodstock" and "The Bruges Band". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 666 – on heavyweight blue vinyl, with bonus 7 inch and poster!)

✨✧ Martin DennyHypnotique ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
An amazing little set that's as compelling as the title and cover might imply – and easily one of our favorite Martin Denny albums ever! There's a sound here that is, actually, quite "hypnotique" – as Denny's core combo is expanded by some larger arrangements, Japanese instrumentation, and even some cool vocals by the Jack Halloran singers – all of which serve to create these pulsating musical lines that shift and sway with an extremely dreamy quality, one that can easily hypnotize us with its musical magic! The added sound really adds a lot to Denny's core group – and the record has some great tracks like "Jungle Madness", "American In Bali", "Chinese Lullaby", "Hypnotique", "Scimitar", and "Voodoo Dreams".

Most of the tracks here are original, but the group also do a nice version of one of our favorite tunes by Leroy Hutson – and it's clear that there's a nice Hutson/Curtom inspiration in the music, but one that's stripped-down a bit more than in the commercial studios of the 70s – more homegrown, and set to the very down to earth vocals of Mathew Aijarapu. Titles include a remake of Hutson's "So In Love With You" – plus "Blood Red Blues", "Ain't That A Man For You", "Long Goodbye", "Think I'm Falling In Love", "Green Light", and "Come Back". CD

Gregg DiamondGregg Diamond's Star Cruiser ... LP
Marlin, 1978. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Gregg Diamond takes his Bionic Boogie sound to a different level – soaring to the skies with a leaner disco groove than before – almost hinting at the coming 80s groove in the process! The rhythms are nice and tight, and often augmented by keyboards that sweeten things up – never overwhelming the overall groove, but packing things in with a mighty nice punch – one that lets the vocals on the record really explode! Most numbers have a chorus singing the spare lyrics – but Diva Gray and Gordon Grody each sing lead on a track each, then give the rest of the record to a backup group that also includes Jocelyn Brown. Our favorite track may well be "Holding Back", which snaps along in a great funky dancefloor groove with some old Bionic Boogie elements – and other cuts include "Arista Vista", "Bring Back Your Love", "Fancy Dancer", and "This Side Of Midnight".

Joseph DiamondNot Your Typical New Yorker ... CD
Basileus, 1999. Used ... $2.99
Joseph Diamond's definitely not your typical New Yorker – he's a heck of a great pianist with a sweetly smooth style that nicely mixes up jazz and Latin influences! The sound here is a warm blend of acoustic keys, percussion, and some slight electric touches – all in a mode that recalls the sound of some of our favorite late 70s fusion albums – like some of Cedar Walton or Rodney Franklin's records for Columbia, but with a stronger jazz focus than some of the R&B on those records. Joseph's sense of timing is especially nice, and the album features all original tunes that include "Que Rico", "Florence", "M&M", "Montoya", "Un Hombre", "Little Past Midnight", "Hope", and "Broken Heart".

Lady DonliEnjoy Your Life ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2020. New Copy ... $26.99
The cover's got the look of a vintage set from the West African scene of the early 80s – and Lady Donli steps out here with an equally classic mode at times – but the set's also very contemporary at others, and really grabs our attention right away! The Lady's got a great style – mixing her own great vocals with rhythms that are heavy on acoustic percussion, but also have some great keyboards and other electric elements too – all nice and lean, and wrapped together with soul-drenched energy that maybe makes the set one of our favorite Afro funky titles in recent years! There's an occasional kick in the rhythms, but the tracks aren't straight club numbers either – as they really hold onto a funky core, and come together with a vibe that sets Lady Donli apart from the rest – and balance things out with some mellower numbers in English that feel more like contemporary Cali soul. The whole thing is really fresh, and with a true sort of universal soul that's so different than other records of this nature – on titles that include "Classic", "Bite The Dust", "With The Kindness", "Good Time", "Boomerang", "Answers", "Zaman Lafiya", "Around", "The Forbidden", and "Never Ending".

✨✧ Dezron Douglas & Brandee YoungerForce Majeure ... CD
International Anthem, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Dezron Douglas and Brandee Younger are two of our favorite jazz musicians to emerge in the past decade – and this set of duets may well be some of the greatest work that either artist has done on record to date! The setting is unique – material pulled from live stream broadcasts that bassist Douglas and harpist Younger did from their Harlem apartment during the lockdown in Spring of 2020 – and if that makes you think that the material's going to be low-fi or cheap, it's not – as there's a sense of majesty here that's really surprising, given that the album features just two musicians! Dezron's bass has never sounded better – and blended with the harp of Younger, the sound is amazing – as Brandee evokes both Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Ashby on the instrument – but also brings in a spirit that's very much her own. The set features remakes of tracks from both Coltranes, and Pharoah Sanders – plus lots of other surprises and original material too – on titles that include "Gospel Trane", "Force Majeure", "This Woman's Work", "Nothing Stupid", "Sing", "The Creator Has A Master Plan", "Never Can Say Goodbye", "We'll Be Right Back", "You Make Me Feel Brand New", and "Equinox".

DramaticsAny Time Any Place ... CD
ABC/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
One of the excellent recordings made by The Dramatics at ABC – great group soul gems that are sometimes overlooked because they didn't yield as many hits as earlier sets – but which are stellar records nonetheless! This one's got all the right elements firmly in place – killer production by Don Davis, and smooth but real harmonies from LJ Reynolds, Ron Banks, and the rest of the group. There's a few tracks that hit a smooth sort of groove that might be tagged as "disco" – but which is really just an extension of the super-dope mode that the group used in earlier years – and which has a lot more to offer than just a cheap dancefloor cash in. Titles include "Life Is Just A Playground", "Love Birds", "A Marriage On Paper Only", "I'm Hooked On You", "That's My Favorite Song", "I Think About You", and "I Just Wanna Dance With You". CD

Carl Drewo & The Clarke Boland Big BandSwing Waltz Swing ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 29.99
One of the coolest projects ever to come from the Clarke Boland Big Band scene of the 60s – an album done under the leadership of Austrian tenor player Carl Drewo, but one that features all of his bandmates from the better-known big band! The set's wonderfully swinging throughout – done in a jazz waltz style with plenty of modal inflections – hardly the overdone Strauss modes you might expect from Drewo's roots, and more of the groovy 60s European rhythm modes that would show up often in sessions on Saba & MPS! Most tracks dance along beautifully – using instrumentation that includes Benny Bailey and Dusko Goykovich on trumpets, Sal Nistico on tenor, Sahib Shihab on baritone and flute, and Derek Humble on alto – all supported by the CBBB rhythm team of Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – plus the amazing Fats Sadi on percussion, really grooving along nicely at the bottom. Drewo's the lead soloist in most numbers, but he allows plenty of space for his bandmates too – and the session's got a sound we'd rank right up there with some of the best Clarke Boland projects of the 60s. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Fruhlingsstimmen", "My Favorite Things", "Claudia", "Schon Ist Die Welt", "Just Give Me Time", and "Keep On Keeping On". LP, Vinyl record album

One of our favorite albums ever from El Gran Combo – largely because it's a smoking Latin Soul set! The group were known for a more traditional groove on other records, but here they nicely jump on the younger bandwagon of the time – and step out with a crackling batch of boogaloo numbers that groove with the best of the Fania and Tico scene of the time!

The vocals alone are tremendous – Peven singing right up front in the mix, with a style that's personal and positive – supported by flowing keyboards, and rhythms that are more soul-oriented than some of his other house-styled work.

Beautiful sounds from Roger Fahkr – a Lebanese singer/songwriter who recorded most of this music in the late 70s – but with a sound and style that's every bit as compelling as western talents from the earlier part of the decade! The tunes often begin with voice and acoustic guitar, but usually bring in a bit of keyboards or other elements to expand things slightly, but all while keeping the moody quality of Roger's English-language vocals intact – all with a quality that could easily have this work standing next to some of our favorite recordings by artists like Rodriguez, Terry Callier, or Alzo & Udine! There's an inexplicable quality to all of these cuts – a uniqueness that really lives up to our comparison with those other greats – and the whole pacakge is a huge discovery of an artist who might have been a huge global force, had he had the chance back in the 70s.

Tremendous guitar work from the great Tal Farlow – easily one of our favorite jazz guitarists ever, and a player with a wonderful sense of tone and timing! This early album has Tal declaring himself loudly and firmly – using a style that's got some slightly raspy edges, and which is a nice change from some of the too-clean modes of other 50s guitarists. The album features a core original 10" album session with a group that includes Oscar Pettiford on bass, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Joe Morello on drums – plus 4 more tracks from a trio with Red Mitchell on bass and Claude Williamson on piano. Titles include "This Is Always", "Tea For Two", "Blues In The Closet", "Gibson Boy", "My Old Flame", "Is There Somebody Lovelier Than You", "Everything I've Got", "You And The Night and Music", "Love Nest", and "When The Wind And The Rain Are In Your Hair".

A dreamy dreamy little record – and one of our favorite discoveries in recent months! These guys are a cool little combo that uses vibes, piano, sax, and percussion to spin out grooves in a breezy 60s mode – not really mod, but more influenced by European jazz, a bit of bossa, and just the right American pop touches! The sound is completely sublime – steeped in historical references, but very much its own kind of bag – and with some wonderful use of vibes that gives the whole thing a really cool and mellow sort of feel, even when the record is grooving nicely. Plus, there's even a bit of vocals on the set – including one great French track that features lyrics sung by the legendary Pierre Barouh, and a great cover of the Ray Terrace track "I Make A Fool Of Myself", sung by Maiia Barouh in a jazzy swinging style! Titles include "Fascinated Groove", "I Make A Fool Of Myself", "Bluesette", "Stone Cold", "Stinger", "Fascinated Blues", "Just You Just Me", and "The Beauties Of Nature". CD

Maynard come back! All is forgiven! We take back all the things we've ever said about you after hearing this album! The record's a jazz funk masterpiece, and it's proof that you've always had a good head on your shoulders, and were waiting for a record like this to really come into your own! The arrangements shine with a smooth electric sparkle that reminds us of the best albums on Kudu or CTI – and even your normally "too hot" solos fit in perfectly with the band's smooth funky grooving. Our favorite tune is the spacey sample cut "Mister Mellow", but the whole album's pretty darn nice, including "Soar Like An Eagle", "The Fly", "Conquistador". Heck, we even like your funky version of "Theme From Star Trek"! Sorry we ever doubted you! LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City/P-Vine (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $28.99
An auspicious name, but an intimate little record – one served up by the vocal duo of Wendy Simon and Eric Shaw – in a mode that's a fair bit like work from Jackie & Roy, but a bit more bop-oriented as well! The pair do a great job of riffing together on the upbeat numbers – trading lines in a horn-inspired vocalese way – and just like Jackie, Wendy steps out herself on a few of the more intimate numbers. Titles include some well-chosen tunes like "Miss Harper Goes Bizarre", "Love Webster's Definition", "Coconut Grove", and "I've Got Just About Everything" – plus versions of "Symphony Sid", "Everybody's Boppin", "My Favorite Things", and "Everybody Eats When They Come To My House".

Clare FischerManteca! ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of our favorite albums ever from the great Clare Fischer – and one of the first to really show his special talents at their best! The sound here is a wonderful blend of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes – and in addition to piano, Clare plays plenty of organ on the date – which bristles with this cool, clear sound amidst larger backdrops that have a very driving feel! There's lots of percussive energy at the bottom of the bigger group tracks – thanks to work from Latin percussionists Carlos Vidal, Cuco Martinez, Chino Valdes, and Rudy Calzado – and some of the other cuts feature a smaller group, but still with lots of great percussion! Clare's organ has this feel that's very different than the usual Hammond jazz style – and really sounds great throughout – on a batch of tracks that includes a key reading of his classic "Morning" – plus the cuts "Manteca", "Favela", "Afro Blue", "Dulzura", and "Negrita". LP, Vinyl record album

Rodney FranklinIn The Center/You'll Never Know/Rodney Franklin/Endless Flight (bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Four soulful fusion classics from keyboardist Rodney Franklin – all together in a single set! First up is In The Center – wonderful keyboard work from the amazing Rodney Franklin – a player who sounds equally great on acoustic and electric piano! This album does a wonderful job of mixing them both – showing Rodney's more sensitive side on a few acoustic numbers, but then really taking off in a much more groove-based mode for the electric ones – which have a soaring, spacious style that's in that best blend of fusion and soul that was going down at Columbia in the late 70s – but with some spacier Bob James touches too! Most of the cuts were arranged by Byron Olsen, who's got an equally sensitive ear as Franklin – and although there's a bit of vocals on the record, most of the focus is on instrumental grooves – especially Rodney's work on the keys. Titles include the classics "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Spanish Flight", and "On The Path" – plus "Yours", "Life Moves On", and the extended "Spring Suite". You'll Never Know is fully-formed genius from the amazing Rodney Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Franklin's got a great talent for balancing influences from jazz and soul in ways that are similar to contemporaries George Duke and Bobby Lyle – and like both of those players, he still stands strong in jazz, but makes some key nods to soul music on this set – adding in a bit of vocals where needed, and moving into some R&B-drenched fusion lines that all sound pretty darn hip! As on previous records, Rodney plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man". Next is the self-titled Rodney Franklin – tremendous work from Rodney Franklin – one of our favorite soulful fusion players from the end of the 70s! The album's a keyboard delight through and through – and Rodney plays both acoustic and electric piano, often on the same track – which creates this nicely expanded sound that works well with the album's tight arrangements! There's a fair bit of soul in the mix too – some rhythms that make a few numbers great groovers, courtesy of Tom Tom arrangements – and some other full moments handled by Patrick Williams. Titles include a wonderful version of "Windy City" – the cut you might know from a classic Carl Davis recording – plus "On The Path", "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Life Moves On", "Creation", and "In The Center". Endless Flight is a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and fusion – smoothed together nicely, but never in a way that's slick or commercial! Franklin's got a keen ear that lets him sit on both sides of the fence wonderfully – in a way that so many other players tried in later years, but never managed to do without losing their groove or selling out too much. Part of the strength of the album is the way that it mixes together acoustic and electric keys from track to track – deepening the spirit of the album through a good sense of pacing and mood, and also offsetting vocal tracks with some key instrumental numbers. Tom Washington produced and heavily helped in the arrangements – and titles include "Vibrations", "Benetta", "Cancion Para Mi Mama", "Dance Tonight", "Endless Flight", "Return To The Source", "Mensaje De Dios", and a surprisingly great funky take on "Hill Street Blues". Includes one bonus track – "The Groove (single version)". CD

Freeez/John RoccaSouthern Freeez/Variations On A Theme (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beggars Banquet (UK), 1981/2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 27.99
A great double package – one that brings together the original debut album from Freeez – plus new variations from the group's John Rocca! The core album alone here is tremendous – a UK jazz funk classic, and a set that's been an underground favorite for years – maybe a bit more sophisticated and subtle overall than some of the electro soul club classics from Rocca and the group – with jazzy elements that might come as quite a surprise, and a very equal balance between instrumental and vocal moments – both of which are pretty darn nice. There's a lot more warmth going on than just beats and keyboards – and titles include "Mariposa", "Easy On The Onions", "Flying High", "First Love", "Southern Freeez", and "Roller Chase". The second set is new takes on older music by Rocca – sometimes with a bit more of a modern club vibe at the core, yet still all of warmth and soul. Titles include "Rain", "My Name Is Love (parts 1 & 2)", "Simple Breeez", "Feeel The Music", and "Southern Freeez 20 + 20". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico FreemanChico ... CD
India Navigation, 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite LPs from Chico, son of the great Von Freeman, and carrier of the torch of that great jazz family that included modernist drummer Bruz and leftfield funk jazz guitarist George. The group here includes Cecil McBee on bass, Muhal Richard Abrams on piano, Steve McCall on drums and Tito Sampo on percussion, and though the record references the AACM on the back, the playing has the less of the playful sensibilities many recordings from the AACM have and more of the searching spiritual quality of a post-Coltrane effort. The first side is a lengthy duet between Chico and bassist McBee, while the second side is the quintet recorded live, with some dynamic group interplay that recalls a Strata East type sound. Titles include "Moments", "And All The World Moved", and "Merger". CD features a bonus section of "Moments", not issued on the LP! CD

FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You (UK pressing) ... CD
Warner/Charly (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers".

Jerry Garcia & Merl SaundersGarciaLive Volume 15 – May 21st, 1971 Keystone Korner ... CD
Round, 1971. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
The legendary Jerry Garcia, in one of our favorite settings – stretching out on a long set with organist Merl Saunders – a player who always seemed to open up the jazzier side of Jerry's music! The material here is long and jamming, but in a way that's nicely laidback – certainly with that flow that Garcia brought to the famous concert jams of the Grateful Dead, but pitched nicely differently here in the company of Merl's keyboards. Both artists vocalize a bit, but the instrumental focus is at the core – and the main trio features Bill Vitt on drums, joined by Martin Fierro on tenor for about half of the set. Titles include "Keystone Korner Jam", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Mystery Train", "The Wall Song", "Save Mother Earth", "That's All Right", "Man Child", "One Kind Favor", "I Know It's A Sin", and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down".

Jacco GardnerCabinet Of Curiosities ... LP
Trouble In Mind, 2013. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A cabinet full of psychedelic wonders from Dutch genius Jacco Gardner! Jacco carries a torch from some of the more swirling psych era sounds from around the world – getting a little bit of assistance on the drums – but he otherwise wrote, produced, and plays everything on this excellent record himself. There's a lot going here, so that's mighty impressive! Reminiscent of some of our favorite late 60s psych that blends gentle melodies with thick atmosphere – with echoey vocals, organ, harpsichord and more. Nice! Includes "Clear The Air", "The One Eyed King", "Puppets Dangling", "Where Will You Go", "Watching The Moon", "Cabinet Of Curiosities", "The Riddle", "Lullaby", "Help Me Out", "Summer's Game", "Chameleon" and "The Ballad Of Little Jane".

Stan GetzWhat The World Needs Now – Stan Getz Plays Bacharach & David ... CD
Verve, 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Stan Getz meets Burt Bacharach – a heavenly combination that brings together two of our most favorite musical talents of the 60s! And while we're at it, we'd also like to mention a third – Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans, who handles all the backdrops for this set – bringing in a groove that you might not expect for tunes by Burt Bacharach – not exactly Charles Stepney at Cadet, but not far, either – a perfect setting for the sparkling, lyrical tone that Getz was hitting at this point in his career. The tunes are familiar, but the blend of talents really keeps things fresh – and with extra contributions from Herbie Hancock on piano and Jim Hall on guitar, you can bet there's plenty going on here. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Windows Of The World", "House Is Not A Home", "Walk On By", and "Trains & Boats & Planes". CD

Dizzy GillespieLegends Live – Liederhalle Stuttgart/Kongresshalle Frankfurt 1961 ... CD
Jazz Haus (Germany), 1961. Used ... $11.99
Rare work from one of our favorite Dizzy Gillespie groups ever – the quintet that featured Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute! The combo was easily one of Dizzy's most compelling of the postwar years, and really helped break him into a whole new groove rhythmically – thanks to Schifrin's key influence on rhythms – working here with bass from Bob Cunningham and drums from Mel Lewis. Yet the group only cut a handful of records together, which makes this well-recorded live date a key addition to their catalog – a set you'll proudly stack next to your early 60s Philips recordings from Diz. Titles include "Con Alma", "Willow Weep For Me", "The Mooche", "Kush", "I Can't Get Started", and "Oops Shoo Be Doo Be". CD

✨✧ Philip GlassKoyaanisqatsi ... LP
Antilles, 1983. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the first film scores ever done by Philip Glass – and a sublime batch of music that exposed his genius to a whole world who'd never heard him before! The music builds in a beautifully minimal way – with rumbling organ and orchestral themes at the beginning, which slowly evolve into brilliantly streaming lines of repeating notes played on keyboards, reeds, and strings – building in a gradual way, but with really subtle power – and occasional voices that come into the blend to push the whole thing even further. Completely amazing – and still one of our favorite records by the legendary composer! LP, Vinyl record album

Don GloriDawn Calling ... LP
Nothin Personal (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $16.99
A really great record from the Melbourne scene – a record that's got kind of a "jazz plus" vibe – in that it mixes live jazz instrumentation with some work on edits and a few electric touches – all in a style that's very much like some of our favorite London work in recent years! Don Glori heads the group on bass and keyboards – but the sound is served up in a really well-crafted blend of saxophones, Fender Rhodes, and lots of great percussion – sometimes with vocals, but often used more like an instrument than a lyrical delivery system – on tracks that are nice and long, and resonate with a mix of soulful and spiritual touches! Titles include "Voyager", "Fly Low, "Dawn Calling", "Pachinko King", and "After Hours". LP, Vinyl record album
