✨✧ Frank WrightKevin, My Dear Son (US pressing) ... LP
Chiaroscuro, 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A glorious return to the US by Frank Wright – playing here in a New York session that includes very soulful work by Reggie Workman, Kamal Abdul Alim, Philly Joe Jones, and Eddie Jefferson (of all folks!) Frenchman Georges Arvanitas sits in on piano, and the session is kind of to Wright what Shepp's early 70s large group avant soul recordings were to his career (if that makes any sense at all!) Tracks include "Long Way From Home", "Odeon", "No End To The Sun", and "November The First". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Frank WrightOne For John (Affinity) ... LP
Actuel/Affinity (UK), 1969. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the real classics on BYG/Actuel! Tenorist Frank Wright is joined by alto player Noah Howard, pianist Bobby Few, and drummer Muhammad Ali in an excellent set of material that's very much in the post-Coltrane/late-Ayler spirit. The set includes 2 long tracks – Wright's "One For John" (Coltrane, natch) and Few's "China". The playing is excellent, Few's piano is a brilliant highlight of the album – and the record is a prime example of how well Americans like Wright and Howard could play in the freer setting of the European scene! LP, Vinyl record album
(80s UK pressing.)

✨✧ Frank Wright TrioFrank Wright Trio ... LP
ESP, 1965. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A freewheeling workout in the classic ESP mode. Wright's hard tenor is set against the bass of Henry Grimes and the drums of Tom Price. (In a way, this is like Grimes' ESP record, with Wright in the place of Perry Robinson.) Three long tracks, with lots of room for Wright to wail. Tracks include "The Moon", "Jerry", and "The Earth". (What a treat for Deadheads – to have Jerry between the Earth and the Moon!) LP, Vinyl record album
(5th Avenue stereo pressing in a catalog cover, with light wear and aging.)

Richard Cahan/Michael WilliamsRichard Nickel – Dangerous Years – What He Saw & What He Wrote (hardcover) ... Book
City Files, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 60.00
The amazing story of an overlooked Chicago hero – photographer/historian/activist Richard Nickel – who spent a good number of his adult years trying to salvage and call attention to the creations of architect Louis Sullivan – before meeting an early death, while getting crushed in one of Sullivan's crumbling creations! Sullivan really helped shape not just the city of Chicago, but also the modern metropolis – a key architect of the early skyscraper, teacher of Frank Lloyd Wright, and contributor to so many city projects – lovingly detailed here in an oversized book that's filled with black and white photos taken by Nickel, alongside his notebooks, writings, and other details of his too-short life. The beautiful book is both an essential look back at a fading city at midcentury, and the tragic tale of a preservationist who was years ahead of his time. An oversized art book – 264 pages, hardcover, with black and white photos on nearly every page. Book

Evan Parker & Georg GraweUnity Variations ... CD
Okka Disk, 1999. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A beautiful testament of how much of an impact the Chicago scene of the 90's is having on the worldwide avant jazz world! This set of live duets was recorded during a time when German pianist Georg Grawe had moved to Chicago to take advantage of the city's rich jazz scene – and when Evan Parker was visiting the city to perform in the now-legendary Empty Bottle Jazz & Improvised Music Festival. The CD captures a performance that is only the second time these two greats have played together, and it was recorded in the acoustically beautiful Unity Temple, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Despite their lack of experience together, these two masters dovetail nicely in performance, and the set of "Unity Variations" is another feather in the cap of the great Okka Disk label. Handsomely packaged, too – with a nice cover based around Albert Oehlen's painting "What The Critic Sees". CD

VariousEccentric Soul – Outskirts Of Deep City (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 26.99
An essential chapter of Miami soul – even if most of the work is appearing here for the first time ever! The set is a magnificent companion to Numero's Deep City collection of pre-TK Miami soul – but it's put together in such a way that it's almost a beautiful introduction to the south Florida sound on its own – served up in a batch of rare, unreleased tracks! The music is every bit as wonderful as you'd expect – Miami soul recorded at a time before cliches had started to hit that scene – and when the best artists down south were strongly resonating ideas from Memphis and Muscle Shoals with other elements borrowed from northern groups both funky and mellow. Numero have really outdone themselves with this one – and the collection is way more than a part 2 to their previous package – more of a brilliant set of soul tunes on its own, complete with a booklet that's as beautiful as the music. Titles include "One Little Piece" by The Rollers, "Don't Be Surprised" by Lynn Williams, "No Way Out" by Clarence Reid, "What's In The Lovin" by Helene Smith, "Mr Lucky" by Betty Wright, "There Goes My Baby" by James Knight & The Butlers, "Do What You're Doin" by The Rising Sun, "Do Your Stuff" by Perk Badger, "Masterpiece" by Deep City Band, "Nasty Dog (part 2)" by The Nasty Dog Catchers, "Thank You Baby" by Betty Wright, "Your Love Won't Let Me Leave You" by Snoopy Dean, "The Pot Can't Talk About The Kettle" by Helene Smith, "Show Me What You Got" by Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, "Don't Be A Fool" by Clarence Reid, and "Knockin At The Wrong Door" by The Rollers. 2LP version features a great 12 x 12 fold out color insert in the middle – and includes 4 bonus tracks – instrumental versions of "Play With Fire" by The Rollers, "True Love Don't Grow On Trees" by Helene Smith, and "There Goes My Baby" by James Knight & The Butlers – plus the cut "Frenchy The Tickler" by Johnny K Killens & The Dynamites.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Deep City Label ... CD
Numero, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The birth of Miami soul, and a beautifully done document of the rare Deep City label – home to Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, and Betty Wright in the years before Alston and TK Records! Way before Miami soul started cracking the charts at the start of the 70s, Deep City was already putting the best parts in place – working with a tight roster of artists and an equally tight in-house band that rose from the ranks of Florida A&M's Marching 100 band – razor-sharp instrumentalists who helped forge a groove worthy to rival the sounds of Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and even the best of Detroit at the time – given that some of the work here has a much sweeter soul sound than other 60s southern soul. As usual, the Numero team have done an incredible job with the package – pulling out rare photos, personal stories, and just the right amount of information to breathe new life into the Deep City label and help it live anew. CD features 17 tracks in all – including "Paralyzed" and "Good Lovin" by Betty Wright, "Am I A Good Man" by Them Two, "Someone To Fulfill My Needs" and "I Love You Baby" by The Moovers, "I Am Controlled By Your Love" and "Willing & Able" by Helene Smith, "Good Thing (part 1)" by Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, "It's My Baby" and "The Upset" by Paul Kelly, and "Stay Away From My Johnny" by Freda Gray & The Rocketeers.

✨✧ Noah HowardSpace Dimension ... LP
America/SeriE.WOC (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few key pairings of Noah Howard and Frank Wright – and a great session that stands perfectly next to those recordings made by the pair under Wright's name! The record bristles with the best energy of the BYG and America sides from the time – but possibly goes even beyond those with a sense of cohesion and soulfulness that is especially gripping. The pairing of Howard's alto and Wright's tenor is one of those few avant matches made in heaven, and they work together wonderfully in freely exploratory territory that recalls the best of the ESP scene of the 60s. The group's a quartet – with Bobby Few on piano and Art Taylor on drums – and tracks include the Howard originals "Space Dimension", "Viva Black", "Song For Poets", and "Blues For Thelma" – plus a shorter version of Wright's classic "Church Number Nine", recorded with Muhammad Ali on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousRockin The Groove – When Groove Was More Than Just A Habit ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive amount of great groovers from the Groove Records subsidiary of RCA in the 50s – home to a hotbed of R&B, early soul, and other killer cuts from the postwar underground of the 45 rpm single! Nobody's ever dug so deeply into the Groove catalog before – and Bear Family have done a wonderful job of unearthing rare nuggets we've never heard before, and mixing them with other Groove gems that are still mostly on the obscure side of the 50s R&B spectrum – all to make a killer assortment that has plenty of greatness to offer, even if you've already got lots of jump blues and R&B in your collection! The music is as lively as the look of the package – and the booklet features over 60 pages of track by track notes on the selections – 35 titles that include "Charmaine" by Frank Brunson, "Big Foot Mammy" by Paul Williams, "Where Is Joe" by Emmett Hobson, "Doo Ba Dee" by Maymie Watts, "Shake Till I'm Shook" by Beverly Wright, "Love Ya Like Crazy" by Chris Powell & The Blue Flames, "A Little Boy's Dream" by George Benson, "Bye By Baby" by Clayton Love, "Hoodoo" by Roy Gaines, "Right Now" by Zilla Mays, and "My Head Goes Round" by Oscar Black.

Leo WrightSoul Talk ... CD
Atlantic/Water, 1963. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A rare soul jazz session from alto saxophonist Leo Wright – a player that we mostly know from his bossa work of the early 60s! The session's extremely noteworthy as being one of the few to feature female organist Gloria Coleman – a player with whom Wright worked on her classic 1963 date Soul Sisters, and who returns here in a very similar hard-wailing sax-and-organ mode! Wright's work on alto is incredibly deep – with a sharper bite than much of his other 60s sessions, and a gutsy down-n-dirty quality that makes the record feel like one of the best organ jazz albums at the time from Prestige. Coleman's approach to the Hammond is great too – freely skipping around with a liberated sense of rhythm, in a way that matches Wright's every twist and turn with ease – and throws a few of its own into the mix as well! The group's completed by Kenny Burrell on guitar (also sounding harder here than usual!) and Frankie Dunlop on drums – and titles include some fresh originals "Poopsie's Minor", "State Trooper", "Blue Leo", "Blues Fanfare", and "Soul Talk".

VariousIf You're Going To The City – A Tribute To Mose Allison (CD & DVD) ... CD
Fat Possum, 2019. New Copy CD & DVD ... $8.99
We're not usually the sorts to dig tribute albums, but the mighty Mose Allison is one of our favorite talents from years back – and the lineup here do a great job of reviving some of the classic spirit of Mose, while also pushing things forward with their own creative reinterpretations of his legacy! If you don't know Allison, he was a jazz pianist first, and a singer second – the latter the quality that brought him great fame, with lots of New Orleans-inflected qualities in his vocals, and lyrics that had a nicely biting mix of contemporary wit and more vintage themes. That legacy has held up wonderfully over the years – and is interpreted here by a host of different artists – a lineup that includes "If You're Going To The City" by Iggy Pop, "Your Mind Is On Vacation" by Taj Mahal, "My Brain" by Robbie Fulks, "If You Life" by Jackson Browne, "Parchman Farm" by Richard Thompson, "Ever Since The World Ended" by Loudon Wainwright III, "Stop This World" by Chrissie Hynde, "Numbers On Paper" by Frank Black, and "Monsters Of The Id" by Amy Allison with Elvis Costello. Includes bonus DVD of the film – Mose Allison Ever Since I Stole The Blues. CD
