Gene RussellNew Direction ... CD
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Sweet funky jazz from pianist Gene Russell – one of the hippest albums he ever recorded! Russell's a pianist with a wonderfully fluid touch – used here to near perfection in a small combo date that really stands out from most of his other albums – just the kind of effort we'd have to expect at the time, given that Gene was the head of the Black Jazz label! The sound is acoustic, but has a definite sense of electricity to Russell's phrasing on the piano – a bit like work from Vince Guaraldi from the time, when he was shifting between acoustic and electric – as if the latter instrument held on and helped shape the acoustic sound. The rest of the group features Henry Franklin on bass, Steve Glover on drums, and Tony William on congas – and the groove is kind of a soulful extrapolation of a core piano trio vibe – 60s soul jazz taken to hipper 70s territory. Titles include a great cover of "Listen Here", plus "Black Orchid", "Hitting the Jug", "Making Bread", and a version of "Silver's Serenade". CD

Gene RussellTalk To My Lady ... CD
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Some of the hippest sounds we've ever heard from pianist Gene Russell – an album that features heavy use of Fender Rhodes – and a soulful, solid, rhythmic core that comes from the basslines of Henry Franklin, guitar of Calvin Keys, and drums of Ndugu Chancler! The set's one of the greatest in the legendary Black Jazz catalog – and is a perfect illustration of the righteous ways the label's players helped to update soul jazz styles of the 60s – really reworking things here with a fresh 70s vibe, and a sense of conscious energy that flows effortlessly from Russell's work on the keys! Most numbers feature added percussion, which really furthers the spirit of the session – and titles include the massive "Get Down", plus "Blues Suite", "For Heaven's Sake", "Talk to My Lady", "My Favorite Things", and "Me & Mrs Jones".

Kellee PattersonKellee (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Shadybrook/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $44.99
Kellee Patterson's amazing first album for the Shadybrook label – a total killer all the way through, and much harder and heavier than any of her later sides for the label! The record's got a nice jazzy vibe that's a good bridge between her earlier work on Black Jazz, and her later, straighter soul material – a dose of funk in all the right places, and a touch of spiritual leanings too – really put together with a wonderful feel that sets the album apart from much other work of the time! Includes a sublime breakbeat version of "I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby" – with killer drums, and an excellent monologue at the beginning – plus a great cover of Grover Washington's "Mister Magic", with some interesting vocals. Other titles include "Time To Space", "What You Don't Know", and "I Love Music". Gene Russell handled production and arrangements, too – giving the whole thing a nice tie to her album for Black Jazz.

VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature (unmixed) ... LP
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his selection here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. The LP features a dozen Black Jazz tracks, all unmixed – and titles include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kellee PattersonMaiden Voyage ... LP
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The most righteous album ever from Kellee Patterson – her first record, and a set that's way different from her more soul-based sides of later years! The album's got Patterson working in a wonderfully soulful approach to jazz – a style that's not unlike the earliest work by Dee Dee Bridgewater, especially her seminal Afro Blue album – and which mixes Kellee's unique vocals with some very hip backings that are right in the best Black Jazz mode! Instrumentation is from a loose jazz combo, and the tunes are a mix of jazzy numbers and a few tighter tracks – a really rich array of sounds that comes together beautifully in the hands of producer Gene Russell. Titles include a stellar version of Herbie Hancock's "Maiden Voyage", a great take on the Flip Nunez number "See You Later", and the tracks "Soul Daddy", "Be All Your Own", "Magic Wand Of Love", "You", and "Look At The Child".

✨✧ Kellee PattersonTurn On The Lights – Be Happy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Shadybrook/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mighty nice work from Kellee Patterson – a singer who should have been huge, given her range of expression – but who's maybe even better as one of the underground soul stars of the 70s! The music here is really a cut above the commercial at the time – tunes that echo some of the uptempo modes of the clubs, but which are always trying for something different too – maybe like some of the hipper female vocal recordings on Philadelphia International, handled here by producer Gene Russell and arranger Larry Farrow. Patterson can soar high one minute, hit some earthy notes the next – and the set's full of original material that really helps her find her groove. Titles include the southern soul styled groove "If It Don't Fit Don't Force It", the slinky "Turn On The Lights", and the cuts "Moving In The Right Direction", "Heaven", "I'm Coming Home", "Let's Hold On To Love", and "Be Happy". CD features bonus tracks – "If It Don't Fit (single version)", and "Turn On The Lights (phase 1 & 2 – single version)". CD

✨✧ Kellee PattersonAll The Things You Are (with bonus track) ... CD
Shadybrook/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Kellee Patterson's far from her early jazz roots on the Black Jazz label – but that's A-OK with us, as she's changed up modes with an upbeat soul style that's equally nice – but in a very different way! At some level, the shift is a bit like that made by Jean Carne during the same period – as Patterson's got roots in jazz, which really helps her bring the most out of a tune – but also merges with more sophisticated modern soul modes, all handled here by Gene Russell – another former labelmate at Black Jazz, and Kellee's partner too. Titles include a groovy uptempo remake of "All The Things You Are", plus originals "Let Go Let Go", "Nice Girl", "How I Love Your Smile", and "Fancy Dancer". CD features the bonus track "Let Go Let Go (promo 12" Roy Thode disco mix)". CD

Hal Russell NRG Ensemble with Charles TylerGeneration (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Nessa, 1982. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
Mad music from the legendary NRG Ensemble – a key early force in Chicago's avant jazz scene in the 80s, teamed here with the mighty reedman Charles Tyler! The group itself is already heavy on dynamic reeds – with leader Hal Russell on tenor and Chuck Burdelik on tenor, alto, and clarinet – but Tyler's presence is really felt strongly, as he adds this deeper dimension of spirituality to the music – one that gets past some of the deft movements of the Ensemble, and brings them to richer territory they sometimes never hit this well. Tyler plays baritone, alto, and clarinet – and Russell also handles cornet, vibes, drums, and shenai – with that multi-instrumental talent that always made him so great. The group also features Steve Hunt on vibes and drums, Curt Bley on bass, and Brian Sandstrom on guitar and trumpet – and titles include "Tatwas", "Cascade", "Generation", "Sponge", and "Sinus Up". CD also features two previously-unissued tracks – "This Fence Is A Loving Machine" and "Uncontrollable Rages". CD

Minimalist brilliance from Jon Gibson – a composer/musician who worked with some of the greats of his generation, and also made some wonderful music on his own! This package features music recorded in and around New York in the mid 70s, often recorded by Kurt Munkacsi, the engineer who made Phillip Glass' recordings sound so great – and the performances range from solo works on piano, organ, and solo soprano sax – to group performances with musicians who include Arthur Russell on cello, Barbara Benary on violin, and Julius Eastman on piano. All works are beautifully minimal and cyclical – and titles include "Equal Distribution", "Solo For Saxophone", "Melody IV", "Song 1", "Melody", and "Song 2". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousFire Over Babylon – Dread, Peace & Conscious Sounds At Studio One ... CD
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 26.99
Some of the most righteous sounds ever recorded at the legendary Studio One label in Jamaica – 70s music that marks a time when the company was moving into some of the more thoughtful, meaningful lyrics that rose to prominence during the rasta generation! The shift is no surprise, given that Bob Marley once recorded for Studio One – but by the time of these tracks, Marley had risen to international fame on Island Records – helping to open the door for a huge new audience for the message and the music, which Studio One was only happy to address with great tracks like this! The set's every bit as great as the other collections from the label on Soul Jazz – handled with equally thoughtful track selection and detailed notes, to support an 18 track set that includes "Sufferation" by Trevor Clarke, "I Am A Revolutionist" by Freddie McGregor, "Burning In My Soul" by The Silvertones, "Mr Jolly Man" by Horace Andy, "Things & Time" by Wailing Souls, "Serious Thing" by The Gladiators, "So Many Problems" by The Viceroys, "Inner Peace" by Pablove Black, "Rock But Don't Fall" by Wailing Souls, "Jah Jah Fire" by Devon Russell, and "Give Me Back Me Language & Me Culture" by Im & Count Ossie.

VariousSoul & The City – Liberated Soul From The Streets Of New York ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
An excellent collection of contemporary soul from the New York scene – key proof that the Big Apple is ready to challenge the underground work coming from Philly and Atlanta in recent years! Many of the artists here are ones that don't really foreground their New York connection – especially in ways you might be used to from mainstream soul – but taken together, they really show a tremendous achievement for the city – a whole new generation of fresh, creative talents in soul music – artists who include a few familiar names and older talents, but who are mainly made up of up-and-comers just getting their game on! The choice of tracks here is superb – really some of the best work by all artists involved – and the set features 17 titles that include "Marvin" by Peter Hadar, "Grand Larceny" by Lavell, "Getting Happy" by Family Stand, "Outside The Box" by Re Re Valverde, "Look At Me Now" by Morrison Slick, "Boyfriend" by Martha Redbone, "Lady" by Russell Taylor, "You Can't Be Late" by Jeremy James, "Heaven" by Gil Small, "Movin On" by Nick Rolfe, "When I'm With You (Spinna rmx)" by Traciana Graves, "Make You Mine" by Heavy, and "Someday We'll All Be Free" by Jewell Zaire with TL.

✨✧ Illinois Jacquet & Leo ParkerToronto 1947 ... CD
Uptown, 1947. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare performance from two 40s giants of the saxophone – tenorist Illinois Jacquet and baritonist Leo Parker – coming together here in a live setting, with tracks that run a lot longer than most studio work from either player at the time! Given that Jacquet's horn is played at a pretty deep, soulful level, he's pretty great match for the sound of the young Leo Parker – already one of the strongest baritone saxophonists of his generation, with a voice that easily bridges the space between bop and swing! Other players on the date include Joe Newman and Russell Jacquet on trumpets, Sir Charles Thompson on piano, Al Lucas on bass, and Shadow Wilson on drums – and the live material has a quality that's a bit like some of the smaller group JATP performances of the period. Tracks include "Mutton Leg", "Home Sweet Home", "Music Hall Beat", "Bottoms Up", and a nice "Ballad Medley". CD

Profile, 1984. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic self-titled debut LP from Run-DMC – one that not only changed hip hop, but much of modern pop and rock forever! There's little we can add to the canon for this record, but the way Run-DMC ushered in a new era in contemporary urban culture, a harder hitting style of rap that managed to bust out of the inner cities and into consciousness of an entire generation, was unforeseen and never to be duplicated to say the least. You can literally call this album revolutionary without sounding heavy handed, it's something very few artists can ever hope to achieve. Amazing! Tracks include "It's Like That", "Sucker MC's", "Rock Box", "Jay's Game", "Hard Times", "30 Days", "Hollis Crew", "Wake Up", and "It's Like That" – and this expanded edition includes the bonus tracks "Rock Box (B-Boy Mix)", "Here We Go (Live At The Funhouse)", "Sucker MCs (Live)" and "Russell & Larry Running At The Mouth".

BBE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from the 70s jazz underground – music that comes from a special place where freedom and rhythm walk hand in hand! Most of the artists here are ones with a legacy that includes some more outside performances – but the cuts here are all upbeat and grooving – often in a modal jazz style that's completely sublime, and which provides boundless energy for the soloists to really take off! Most numbers are from a spiritual, post-Coltrane generation – and most of the work here is not that easy to find otherwise. Tracks include "Abuella" by Billy Bang, "V Movimento" and "III Movimenhto" by Giorgio Gaslini, "Latin Black Funk" by Sparrow, "Theme/Souls" by George Russell with Jan Garbarek, "Benediction" and "Pursuit" by Tina Marsh Creative Opportunity Orchestra, and "Now Is The Time" by Dick Griffin.

✨✧ Hal Russell & Mars WilliamsEftsoons ... LP
Nessa, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark pairing of two Chicago avant players at the start of the 80s – and one that shows that the city had plenty going on, even away from the AACM! The set brings together the older Hal Russell – still an underground secret in the city – and the younger Mars Williams, who was just starting out here, but would soon rise to fame in the NRG Ensemble, and on decades of other recordings and alliances in the Windy City. There's a mix of instrumentation that really shows the open-minded sense of improvisation that Russell helped encourage in the younger Generations – and Hal plays drums, C melody sax, cornet, vibes, toy horns, and "lots of other stuff" – with Mars Williams playing tenor sax, slide whistles, bells, newspapers, and "lots of other stuff" too! Titles include "Carnal Concupiscence", "Is This Virginia", "Odoriferous Flambeaus Of The Paranymphs", "Eftsoons", and "Noise Command Blast 1". LP, Vinyl record album
