Hank CrawfordFrom The Heart ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1962. Used ... $11.99
Warm and laidback soul jazz from the great Hank Crawford – cut in a relaxed mode that makes the set feel like some of the late nite smokers on the Prestige label at the time! Hank's alto work is perfectly placed on the set, and he's working with fellow Ray Charles bandmember David Fathead Newman on tenor – plus John Hunt and Phil Guilbeau on trumpets, and Leroy Cooper on baritone sax – plus guitar from Sonny Forrest on two tracks. Titles include "The Peeper", "Sherri", "Sweet Cakes", "Don't Cry Baby", "What Will I Tell My Heart", and "But On The Other Hand". CD

Hank CrawfordMore Soul ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1960. Used ... $11.99
Given Hank Crawford's soulful legacy on the alto sax – one that already made him a star in Ray Charles group by the time of this LP – it would be hard to add More Soul to his bag – but that's what he's going for here, and we've gotta say that it works pretty darn well! The session's a small group one – with Hank's alto alongside tenor by David Newman, trumpet by Phillip Guilbeau, and baritone sax by Leroy "Hog" Cooper – and in addition to tenor, Hank also plays some piano on the set as well. The tunes have an easygoing soul jazz groove that makes the record feel more like a Prestige jazz session than an Atlantic one – and there's a nice variety to the record, which helps it get past some of the hoke on Hank's other sets from the time. Titles include "Boo's Tune", "Four Five Six", "The Story", "Sister Sadie", and "Dat Dere". CD

Hank CrawfordWe Got A Good Thing Going ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1972. Used ... $11.99
Early CTI/Kudu material from alto legend Hank Crawford – part of a strong 70s run that helped him find a whole new audience for his soulful sound! Crawford got his start with Ray Charles, and cut some classic albums for Atlantic in the 60s – but during the 70s, his sound really warmed up a lot with the right electric touches – providing a flow in the backdrops while Hank too off on tight, well-blown solos – almost the alto sax equivalent to what the tenor of Stanley Turrentine was crafting at the time. Arrangements here are by Don Sebesky and Bob James – sometimes a bit funky, sometimes laidback – and other musicians include James on Rhodes and George Benson on guitar. Titles include a great funky take on "Alone Again Naturally" – plus "We Got A Good Thing Going", "I Don't Know", "A Little Tear", and "Down To Earth". CD

Hank CrawfordWildflower (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1973. Used ... $14.99
A sweet bit of electric funk, and one of Hank Crawford's greatest records from the 70s – thanks in large part to the great Bob James – who arranged and produced the record with a mighty soulful vibe – leaving Hank lots of room to solo on his own over the top! The groove is really great – and the record gets surprisingly chunky in parts – with heavier rhythms than you might expect from a Crawford album from the time – not exactly the heavier funk of other CTI records, but with a definite taste of that style too. Arrangements are fairly large, and feature keyboards from Richard Tee – plus backing vocals at a few spots – and titles include great versions of "You've Got It Bad Girl" and "Corazon", plus the tracks "Good Morning Heartache" and "Wildflower".

Hank Crawford & Calvin NewbornCenterpiece ... CD
Versatile/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
A nice little collaboration between saxophonist Hank Crawford and guitarist Calvin Newborn – a record that turns out to be one of the best from both players for the time! Crawford's managed to shake off some of the hoke of his earlier records – and although his sound here isn't earth-shattering, it's a lot fresher than it might be – with a laidback use of the alto that's augmented by some especially nice Fender Rhodes, as part of Hank's growing talents on the keyboard. Crawford also arranged and produced, but Newborn still gets in plenty of space too – using some bluesier licks to bring in an earthier tone, while still also staying in the smoother feel of the record. Titles include a remake of "Breezin", plus "Centerpiece", "Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You", "I Can't Stand It", "I Had A Dream", and "Frame For The Blues". CD

Kudu, 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet soulful jazz from reedman Hank Crawford – one of his killer Kudu sessions from the 70s – all of which really helped Hank redefine his sound! The setting here is large and full – put together beautifully by Bob James, with that sense of space for the soloist that makes his CTI/Kudu arrangements so crucial – and light years ahead of what other arrangers were doing at the time. The tracks are longish, but never overdone – and the record has all the soulful alto sounds of Crawford's 60s work at Atlantic, but with a definite 70s bent overall. James plays Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and other players include Joe Farrell on tenor and flute, Idris Muhammad and Bernard Purdie on drums, and Richard Tee on additional keyboards. Titles include "Jana", "Sho Is Funky", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "Groove Junction", and "All In Love Is Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

Collectables, 1968/1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mr Blues is a sweet soulful stepper from the mighty Hank Crawford – a set that's got a bit of the bluesy lines promised by the title, but which also has some snappier soul jazz modes played by a larger ensemble! Hank plays a bit of piano, in addition to his trademark alto sax – and the set's got a style that bridges his roots with Ray Charles and some of the cooler, groovier modes of Atlantic Records jazz in the 60s. Other players include Wendell Harrison on reeds, and Sonny Forriest on guitar – and titles include the originals "Mr Blues", "Smoky City", "Hush Puppies", and "The Turfer" – plus versions of "Danger Zone", "Route 66", and "Lonely Avenue". The second album is a great meeting of two key sides of Atlantic Records in the 60s – a set that has altoist Hank Crawford blowing jazz solos over a set of tracks dedicated to Aretha Franklin! Most numbers are Franklin vocal classics, served up here in some sweet instrumental readings with arrangements by Arif Mardin – who really keeps the mood the same as his work with Aretha – and Hank's alto really shines in this soulful setting, hitting a warm mode that's pretty darn great. The title cut – "Lady Soul" – is an original by Crawford, dedicated to Aretha – and other titles include "Take A Look", "Going Down Slow", "Groovin", "Baby I Love You", "Never Let Me Go", and "Ain't No Way".

Charlie BrownWhy Is Everybody Always Pickin On Me? ... CD
Contact/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... About December 20, 2020
A pretty unusual album – and one by an obscure player who's not to be confused with Charles Brown, the blues singer – or Chuck Brown, the leader of the Soul Searchers! This Charlie Brown is a tenor player – listed as obscure even in the notes to the session – which is a laidback set of soul jazz numbers which feature Chuck's tenor over backings by Horace Ott. The overall style is similar to some of Hank Crawford's work from the time, particularly his albums on Kudu – with a polished feel to the backings, offset by some gutsier work by the main soloist – and the group is pretty great, and features Neal Creque on piano, Richard Tee on organ, Pretty Purdie on drums, and Billy Butler on guitar. Titles include "Back On The Track", "I Wanna Be Where You Are", "Love The One You're With", and "(Funky) Sunny", probably the nicest track on the album. CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1962. Used ... $11.99
Early work from David Fathead Newman – so early, the cover has him listed as "Dave" on the front! The album steps nicely off Newman's early work with Ray Charles – and does plenty to establish him as a leader on his own – putting Newman's bold, soulful tenor right upfront in the mix – and backing him with small combo players who include Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Norris Austin on piano, and Hank Crawford on a bit of piano! There's a deep undercurrent that's mighty nice – almost a rootsier quality than on other Newman albums – and titles include "Cellar Groove", "Hello There", "Alto Sauce", and "Scufflin". CD

Jr Walker & The All StarsWalk In The Night – The Motown 70s Studio Albums (A Gasssss/Rainbow Funk/Moody Jr/Peace & Understanding/Jr Walker & The All Stars/Hot Shot) (3CD set) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
6 Motown albums from Jr Walker & The All Stars – all long overdue for reissue! First up is A Gasssss – a gas of a record from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that has the magical Johnny Bristol producing – giving the group this really warm, soaring sound that's totally great! Walker still serves up plenty of strong tenor solos, but there's also some vocal currents in the mix – strong leads at times, but also some nice backups too – all of which really helps to keep things soaring! Titles a nice mix of Motown covers and original material – and titles include "I Was Made To Love Her", "Do You See My Love", "And When I Die", "Honey Come Back", "Holly Holy", "Riding High On Love", "At A Saturday Matinee", and "Groove & Move". Next up is Rainbow Funk – a record that definitely has Jr Walker & The All Stars picking up a bit of funk – but in a groove that still mixes things with that warmly soulful glow the group had right from the start! The basslines are definitely up a bit from before – although not rumbling in Norman Whitfield territory – and the sax solos get a bit more space to stretch out and bite on the longer numbers, but often with a bit of backing vocals to warm things up around the edges! Jr is great all the way through – Motown's very strong answer to King Curtis – and titles include "Right On Brothers & Sisters", "Way Back Home", "Feeling Alright", "Psychedelic Shack", "Pieces Of A Man", and "Teach Them To Pray". Moody Jr is a sweet early 70s groover from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that reunites the group with producer Johnny Bristol, who always has a great way of helping them set fire to their sound! Walker and company may have shot from the gate with a mix of R&B tenor and Motown soul – but the sound here is much more in the latter, more matured mode of the label – with strong deep soul lyrics on a number of cuts, which are balanced out nicely by Bristol's fuller production. There's plenty of sax solos too, of course – and titles include "Way Back Home", "Bristol's Way", "Don't Blame The Children", "Me & My Family", "Still Water Medley", and "Groove Thang". Peace & Understanding is a record that has Jr Walker and the group stepping out with some of the righteous touches promised in the title – partly in the choice of songs on the set, which are all nicely tucked into that strong mix of deep soul vocals and saxophone lines that had become the Jr Walker groove! The set features work from a number of different arrangers – all the hipper side of Motown in the early 70s, as the list includes, Willie Hutch, Gene Page, and James Carmichael – and tunes include two great originals, one by Hutch, one by Leon Ware. Tracks include "It's Alright Do What You Gotta Do", "Soul Clappin'", "Gimme that Beat (parts 1 & 2)", "It's Too Late", and "Peace & Understanding Is Hard To Find". The self-titled Jr Walker & The All Stars album is maybe the rarest in the bunch – an obscure UK-only record from 1974, and one that has the group's usual approach warmed up by some more ambitious arrangements – a bit like the direction some of the vocal acts of the 70s were taking at the time! The production on most of the set is by Clarence Paul – and there's mostly a focus on the saxophone, not any vocals at all – which makes the set feel a bit like some of the Willis Jackson or Lou Donaldson work for Atlantic around the same time – or maybe even a bit like Hank Crawford on Kudu. Titles include "Boogie Down", "All In Love Is Fair", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", "Break Down & Sing", and "Dancin Like They Do On Soul Train". Hot Shot is a mid-70s stormer from Jr Walker & The All Stars – a set that glides along on a fuller set of backdrops than before, with Holland-Dozier-Holland production from Brian Holland returning to Motown – but in a hip 70s style that has strings and funk dancing along in a great way beneath the strong sax solos in the lead! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the real strength lies in the instrumentation – especially some of the weirder, fuzzier guitar lines and keyboards. Titles include "Why Can't We Be Lovers", "Hot Shot", "Probe Your Mind", "I Need You Right Now", and "You Ain't No Ordinary Woman". CD

Buster WilliamsDreams Come True ... CD
Buddah/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
An overlooked set of mellow numbers from bassist Buster Williams – a lost gem that's got a very different feel than some of his earlier work in the 70s, but which is equally soulful! The set's got Buster playing bass over larger arrangements arranged by Kenny Barron and Onaje Allen Gumbs – a blend of soul jazz, strings, and some light wordless vocals from time to time – drifting out over the instrumentation with a sound that's sweetly soulful. Williams acoustic bass is in the lead on all numbers, and on some of the best cuts he plays piccolo bass in a plucked mode – sounding a bit like Ron Carter on some of his 70s sets. Other players include Kenny Barron on acoustic piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Crawford on alto sax, and Onaje Allen Gumbs on electric piano. Titles include the funky title cut "Dreams Come True", plus "When The Sky Is Clear", "Seascape", "So Falls The Past", and a cover of "Betcha By Golly Wow". CD

A pretty amazing batch of soul, R&B, and funk from the Nashville scene – from an astonishing range of years, too! Of course the memorabilia industry that is "Music City USA" is dominated by country music and pop, and this long, long, LONG overdue collection of singles from 1945-1970 demonstrates how much more was going on in East Tennessee beyond Chet Atkins and the Opry! The tunes range from jump blues & soul of the late 40s and 50s, and on through the harmony soul of the 60s and the pre-funk late 60s. 38 tracks on two CDs: "Nashville Jumps" by Cecil Gant, "Just Walkin' In The Rain" by The Prisonaires, "Baby Let's Play House" by Arthur Gunter, "Christene" by Little Hank Crawford, "You Can Make It If You Try" by Gene Allison, "Somebody, Somewhere" by Larry Birdsong, "Monkey Doin' Woman" by Shy Guy Douglas, "What'd I Say" by Etta James, "Snap Your Fingers" by Joe Henderson, "I Want To" by Joe Tex, "The Chokin'" Kind" by Joe Simon, "Rediscover Me" by Johnny Adams and tons more!

William S. Fischer handled all the arrangements – so although things are tight, there's still a cool creative undercurrent too – way more than just standard orchestrations behind Newman's sweet solo lines on alto, tenor, and soprano sax. A few cuts have backing vocals – used in ways you might hear on a Hank Crawford album – and titles include "Shiki", "Promise Me Your Love", "Ebo Man", "Groovin To The Music", "I Love Music", and "Mashooganah".

Kizzy CrawfordWay I Dream ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $9.99 10.98
A fantastic debut from Kizzy Crawford – a soul singer who will most likely be huge in years to come – thanks to an approach that seems to effortlessly cross borders and boundaries! Kizzy's lyrics are personal, but positive – and the music is a blend of soul instrumentation with acoustic elements – at a level that makes it clear that Crawford's not just trying to be another neo soul diva, or retro soul vocalist – but instead is really ready to address the world with a sound that's all her own! Songs are all original, and instrumentation changes up with a nice sense of variety, but without ever making us think that Kizzy can't make up her mind – on titles that include "Golden Brown", "Progression", "Dive", "Real Love", "The Way I Dream", "Waiting Game", and "Adlewyrchu Arnaf".

Motown (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A motherlode of Northern Soul work – all compiled by Dave Godin, the man who first coined the name for the genre! As you'll guess by the title, all the tracks on the set are from the Motown label – no surprise, as the Detroit powerhouse was a huge influence on the British scene of the 60s, thanks to a lot of help from Godin, whose work really allowed Motown to gain a foothold in the UK. The groove here is all uptempo, all driving – that jumpy approach to soul music that always played big on the Northern dancefloors – and the 2CD brings together all of the 48 tracks that were previously issued on 2 individual volumes. Titles include "Do I Love You" by Frank Wilson, "Keep On Lovin Me" by Frances Nero, "Goodbye Cruel World" by Linda Griner, "Share A Little Love With Me" by The Monitors, "This Love Starved Heart Of Mine" by Marvin Gaye, "You Hit Me" by Kim Weston, "Just Walk In My Shoes" by Gladys Knight & the Pips, "What More Could A Boy Ask For" by The Spinners, "Goodnight Irene" by The Originals, "When I'm Gone" by Brenda Holloway, "Nightmare" by Andantes, "Just A Little Misunderstanding" by The Contours, "I'll Always Love You" by The Spinners, "I Gotta Let You Go" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Lonely Lonely Girl Am I" by The Velvelettes, "Just Ain't Enough Love" by Eddie Holland, "Suspicion" by The Originals, "My Weakness Is You" by Jr Walker, "Lonely Lover" by The Four Tops, "My Smile Is Just A Frown Turned Upside Down" by Carolyn Crawford, "Two Can Have A Party" by Tammi Terrell, "Baby Hit & Run" by The Contours, "When I Feel The Need" by Marvin Gaye, "I Gotta Let You Go" by Jimmy Ruffin, and "Baby Come Home to Me" by Shorty Long.

Randy CrawfordSecret Combination ... CD
Warner, 1981. Used ... $2.99
Rich, proud work from Randy Crawford – sung with the mature mix of jazz and soul that made her one of the more sophisticated mainstream singers of her generation! The album's heavy on mellower cuts, but it's never too sleepy – thanks to a slow-burning sensibility that Randy uses to keep things cooking on the low burners – a style that brings out some good vocal force even when the backings are somewhat gentle. Production's by Tommy LiPuma, and somewhat slick, and tracks include "You Might Need Somebody", "That's How Heartaches Are Made", "Two Lives", "You Bring The Sun Out", "Rio De Janeiro Blue", "Time For Love", "Trade Winds", and "When I Lose My Way".
