Marc HannibalMarc Hannibal ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A lesser-known pop soul release from the late 60s, by this former member of the Harlem Globetrotters! Marc's not much of a singer – but he does have a deep voice that's a good fit for the arrangements on the album. Jimmy Bowen produced, and there's a lot of his sweetly swinging 60s pop styles on the tunes, especially those that are going for a bit of a Dean Martin country touch. Arrangements are by Glen Hardin – and titles include "Why Can't I Walk Away", "The Grass Won't Pay You No Mind", "When The Wind Blows In Chicago", "If She Should Come To You", and "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring".

King HannibalTruth ... CD
Aware/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99 25.99
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really grabs his groove from the very first note on the set! Backings are hard and funky – lots of fuzzy guitar work from Herman Hitson and Lee Moses – and the tunes come across with a gritty mode that sometimes rolls into mellower southern soul styles, but still never lose their edge. Bits of politics creep into the lyrics nicely, but never get in the way of the groove – and tracks include a long version of Hannibal's classic "Hymn No 5", plus "Party Life", "I Got That Will", "The Truth Shall Make You Free", "Wake Up", "Black Girl", and "It's What You Do".

✨✧ Hannibal Marvin PetersonChildren Of The Fire ... LP
Sunrise, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the most beautiful, most sophisticated, and most fully-realized sessions from trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson – and a record that features some incredible larger backings from David Amram! The set's a haunting suite dedicated to the children of Vietnam – one that starts out in a darkly brooding mode, but which opens up with some extremely redemptive moments as the set moves on – done in a very spiritual approach to soul jazz that's strongly in the Alice Coltrane tradition! Instrumentation includes a small string group, plus added percussion – and musicians on the set include Art Webb on flute, Richard Davis on bass, Billy Hart on drums, Michael Cochran on piano, and Hannibal himself on both trumpet and koto. The lovely Alpha Johnson sings on a few of the album's tracks, and the whole thing is very warm and deep, and has a lot of variance in tempo and mood, with a strong spiritual feel similar to that of some of the more ambitious Strata East recordings from the time! Titles include "Forest Sunrise", "The Bombing", "Prayer", "Aftermath", and "Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George Adams, Martin Hannibal Peterson & FriendsMore Sightings ... CD
Enja, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
An unusual date from tenorist George Adams – recorded right around the same time as his legendary records with Don Pullen, but instead a more unusual partnership with the great trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson! The pairing is great – and both hornmen soar out and really get plenty of room to do their thing – in a mixture of hardbop energy and more spiritual currents, with help from John Scofield on guitar, Ron Burton on piano, Walter Schmocker on bass, and Allen Nelson on drums. The energy is maybe a bit more like some of Peterson's late 70s records than some of the Adams/Pullen material – and that quality makes the live date a nice standout in the catalog of both players. Titles include "Soul Brothers", "Do We Know Where We Are Going", "Melanie", "More Sightings", and "Don't Take Your Love From Me". CD

Vinicius CantuariaSilva ... CD
Hannibal, 2005. Used ... $4.99
Sweet bossa with plenty of jazzy touches – and easily one of the greatest albums so far by Vinicius Cantuaria! The set's got a simple, honest approach that reminds us a lot of Joao Gilberto's 70s work – with Vincius' vocals and acoustic guitar very upfront in the mix. Yet there's also some nice use of gentle strings and slight electric jazz touches, shading in the album with a subtle spareness – but really fleshing out the sound with a depth that we've never heard before in Cantuaria's work. And best of all, the whole thing comes off without any of the too-slick sounds that can often mar other recent efforts like this – and has an earthy, personal feel that's very much in the best spirit of classic bossa, yet which isn't a strict copy of the style at all. Titles include "A Dor", "The Bridge", "Evening Rain", "Pena De Mim", "Paraguai", "Alegria", "Nunca Mais", and "India". CD

Warner, Late 80s. Used ... $1.99
Late live work from Miles Davis – a collection of material recorded in various concert settings during the last few years of the 80s – pulled together as a double-length tribute the trumpeter after he passed away! The quality of the performances here is great – very similar to some of Miles' early 80s work for Columbia, especially his great 2LP live set for them – and the players on the tracks vary a bit, given the setting – and include Adam Holzman, Joey DeFrancesco, and Robert Irving III on keyboards – plus Kenny Garrett on alto and flute, Benny Rietveld and Foley on bass, Ricky Wellman on drums, and Marilyn Mazur on percussion. Titles include "Hannibal", "New Blues", "Intruder", "Time After Time", "Human Nature", "Full Nelson", "Wrinkle", and "Amandla". CD

Gil EvansSvengali ... CD
Atlantic (Germany), 1973. Used ... $6.99
A great example of the way that Gil Evans really opened up his groove in the 70s – moving here way way past the cool jazz and third stream of earlier years – into a soulful style that's far groovier than might be expected! Part of the strength of the set is because of the players – as Gil's working with a group of younger soul jazz and spiritual soloists that include Ted Dunbar, Billy Harper, and Hannibal Marvin Peterson – as well as the older soul modernist Richard Williams. But there's also some other specifically Evans-like touches to the record that stand out – like Gil's stark notes on acoustic piano and his lighter work on the electric keys – plus a bit of inventive synthesizer from David Horowitz, who makes a few tracks really crackle with energy. Tracks include "Zee Zee", "Blues In Orbit", "Cry Of Hunger", and "Thoroughbred" – the latter two of which are lovely compositions by Billy Harper! CD

Frank FosterLoud Minority ... LP
Mainstream, 1971. Sealed Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most amazing albums ever from Frank Foster – a totally righteous set that's light years ahead of his earlier work with the Basie Band! The format here is right up there with the best on Strata East at the time – a large-group session that's filled with some of the hippest players of the early 70s – all coming together with a joyous, spiritual sense of power! Foster's in the lead on tenor and soprano sax, but other players include Cecil Bridgewater and Hannibal Marvin Peterson on trumpets, Harold Mabern on keyboards, Elvin Jones on drums, Dick Griffin on trombone, Stanley Clarke on bass, Airto on percussion, and even Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals! Tracks are all quite long and flowing – spiritual expressions of jazz that rival the greatness of anything recorded for Impulse – and titles include "The Loud Minority", "Requiem For Dusty", "JP's Thing", and "EW – Beautiful People".

Marvin Peterson & The SoulmastersMarvin Peterson & The Soulmasters In Concert (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Century/P-Vine (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
Tremendous early work from trumpeter Hannibal Marvin Peterson – an artist you might know from his long-spun spiritual jazz work of the 70s – but who sounds nicely different here on a rare early set from the 60s! The record was done when Marvin was part of the ultra-hip jazz program at North Texas State University – which you may know from their own label and albums – and the vibe here is more soul and funk than Peterson of a few years later – served up with a very cool combo that features organ, bass, and drums chugging out a mighty sweet groove – while Marvin solos over the top on trumpet, alongside Mike Campbell on alto, Cleveland Gay on trombone, and Tim Peterson on saxes and flute. There's definitely a few deeper currents here, but mixed with soul-inspired material as well – which even sees a bit of vocals from Marvin too. Titles include "Our Groove", "I Can't Stand It", "Groove For Otis", "Five Foot Even", and "Conversation". CD

Don PullenTomorrow's Promises ... CD
Koch/Atlantic, 1977. Used ... $18.99
A strange and beautiful album from the late Don Pullen! The record is almost a funk album at times, but it's really more of an electrically-tinged session that brings Pullen's lively keyboards into play with some strident groupings that include George Adams, Hannibal Marvin Peterson, and Roland Prince. The whole thing's got a really sweet mellow feel – with lots of nice work on Fender Rhodes and clavinet by Pullen. Tracks include "Big Alice", "Poodie Pie", "Last Year's Lies & Tomorrow's Promises", and the Latin-tinged "Kadji". CD

VariousAtlanta Soul Artistry 1965 to 1975 ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
Overlooked work from the underground soul scene in Atlanta – a southern city that wasn't as famous for its music as Memphis or Muscle Shoals, but which really helped the sound of soul step forward at the start of the 70s! The Atlanta groove is a bit different than that of neighboring cities – sometimes a bit tighter, with uptempo funk that's already pointing the way towards the second half of the 70s – mixed with deep soul vocals that still showcase the southern origin of most of these cuts, even when they're getting a bit of help from visiting Chicago talents in the studio! A number of cuts were unissued at the time, and they're mixed with singles from the GRC, Aware, and Hotlanta labels – in a set of tracks that include "Don't Let Me Know" by Charlie Thomas, "Big Boat Ride" by Dorothy Norwood, "I'm Tired Of Dreaming" by Joe Hinton, "You Were Right On Time" by Ripple, "You Get To Me" by Lee Brackett, "It's Got To Be The Real Thing" by John Edwards, "Is That Any Way To Treat A Lady" by Jimmy Lewis, "Complain To The Clouds" by Deep Velvet, "Since We Said Goodbye" by The Counts, "I'm A Dreamer" by Bobby Burn, "I'm Leaving" by Joe Graham, "Fight Fire With Fire" by King Hannibal, and "You Ain't For Real" by Arthur Alexander.

King/Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
During the 50s, King Records was one of the biggest labels in R&B – and as the soul years of the 60s approached, the company kept the flag flying strong with a host of new artists, underground soul and blues singers who helped define the new sound of the decade with a rich approach to the music. This set features 24 tracks from those years – mostly obscure numbers by artists that have long fallen by the wayside, but who recorded for King next to James Brown, Little Willie John, and other important early soul artists – often matching or beating their intensity with their brief turn in the studio! The set features tracks that were mostly singles on the King and Federal labels – with titles that include "My Kinda Girl" by Hannibal, "You're Welcome To The Club" by Lee Shot Williams, "Just A Little Bit" by Tiny Topsy, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "Burnt Toast & Black Coffee" by Mike Pedicin, "I'm Better Off Now" by The Premiers, "She Made My Blood Run Cold" by Ike Turner, "You Won't Want Me Around" by Mike Williams, "You're Using Me" by The King Pins, and "Don't Be So Mean" by William Patton.

Impulse/MCA, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A righteous cover, a righteous title, and a righteous little session that features one long song that spans the entire length of the album! "Black Unity" may well be Pharoah Sanders' freest expression on record to date – but it's also still got all the hallmarks of his best moments on Impulse – especially the tighter rhythmic focus that always makes his work so compelling – and which has kept his legacy fresh for generations and generations of new jazz listeners! The group here is wonderfully put together – with Joe Bonner on piano, Carlos Garnett on tenor, Marvin Hannibal Peterson on trumpet, Cecil McBee and Stanley Clarke on basses, and Norman Connors and Billy Hart on drums – all with plenty of space to stretch out, open up, and really do their thing! In contrast to some of the totally free work coming out of the European scene during the same stretch – especially that by American players overseas – the album's a great reminder that rhythm in jazz is always a key component – as Pharoah finds a way to make things swing, even at unexpected moments!

A deep dive into the music of Enja Records – a label that really needs no introduction to most longtime fans of jazz, as Enja's been serving up some of the best sounds from the European scene for the past 50 years – as well as providing some really amazing records by American artists too! Yet there's also an overlooked legacy of spiritual jazz from Enja – sometimes hidden next to the more straightforward jazz releases on the label – and that 70s legacy gets a key showcase here, in an expansive presentation that has the whole thing stretching out with a fair bit of really long tracks!

Ace/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Vietnam war was tough on most folks in the US – but it's no secret that it was especially tough on black Americans – who were often given little choice and little chance to get out of the callup to the military action – which left a huge impression on their community for years to come! This package documents the affect of Vietnam in soul music – in ways that are both direct and more subtle, as the package blends together a number of tracks that you likely don't know at all, and others that you might have missed as being critical of the war – as there's more subtle messaging going on, a lesson that was learned during the Civil Rights era, when a mellower lyric might get more mainstream circulation – as a call to action that a change was going to come. The quality of cuts here is wonderful – as well-selected as some of the Ace/Kent collections of rare soul music on small labels – and there's definitely a few here that we're hearing for the first time, alongside other numbers that really sound great in the setting. Titles include "Fighting For My Baby" by Donald Jenkins, "Lonely Soldier" by William Bell, "Letter To A Buddie" by Joe Medwick, "I Want To Come Home For Christmas" by Marvin Gaye, "My Ship Is Coming In Tomorrow" by The Pace Setters, "Johnny" by King Hannibal, "Going On Strike" by The Emotions, "Uncle Sam" by Jimmy Hughes, "My Soldier Boy Is Coming Home" by The Shirelles, "Glad To Be Home" by Charles Smith & Jeff Cooper, "The War Is Over My Brother" by The Sensational Saints, "Home To Stay" by RB Greaves, "Stop The War" by The Impressions, "Wish You Were Here With Me" by The Fawns, "VC Blues" by Allen Orange, "Promise That You'll Wait" by Michael Lizzmore, "Men Are Getting Scarce" by Chairmen Of The Board, and "Leave Him Alone" by Stu Gardner.

Warner, 1991. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the last performances ever recorded by Miles Davis – done at a jazz festival in a small town in France, and with a sound that's a bit of a change from some of his studio work at the time! There's a great sense of warmth here – a quality that may come from Miles' use of two different bassists, Foley and Richard Patterson – both players who never dominate the sound too much, but create this nice sort of bottom that provides plenty of grounding for the soaring solos of Miles on trumpet, Kenny Garrett on saxes, and Deron Johnson on keyboards. Ricky Wellman handles drums in the group – and the double-length set is full of great long performances – including versions of the Prince tunes "Jailbait" and "Penetration", plus takes on "Time After Time" and "Human Nature", which Miles was handling beautifully in the 80s – alongside the cuts "Wrinkle", "Hannibal", and "Amandla".

Masabumi Kikuchi plays electric piano throughout – working with a large Evans-led ensemble that also includes Harper on tenor and flute, and Peterson on trumpet and flugelhorn – not to mention some surprising sounds on ring modulator from Evans himself! The arrangements are quite bold – like the best of Gil's work of the time – and really do a great job of mixing electric and acoustic elements in a really fresh way – quite different from any other big band styles of the time, and with all the modernism you'd expect from Evans' music. Titles include "Priestess", "Ictus", "Cry Of Hunger", "Eleven", "Drizzling Rain", and "Thoroughbred". CD
