Art Ensemble Of ChicagoCertain Blacks (Inner City) ... LP
America/Inner City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers! The centerpiece of the album is the extended track "Certain Blacks (Do What They Wanna)" – done in a beautiful mix of politics and free group improvisation that come across with amazing power and clarity – making the piece one of the best translations of the Chicago AACM spirit to the European scene. Other tracks on the session include the soulfully spiritual number "One For Jarman", which captures the group at a uniquely laidback level – and the bluesy "Bye Bye Baby", which features one of the few pairings of the group with Chicago Beau and harmonica player Julio Finn.

Dan HancoxInner City Pressure – The Story Of Grime (hardcover) ... Book
William Collins (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $5.99 29.99
Grime may not be at the top of everyone's list when it comes to favorite music genres – but there's no denying that the style had a key impact on the UK scene at the start of the century, and was a key moment of expression for band of outsiders who finally got the attention they deserved! Writer Dan Hancox takes a look at grime, from its disparate origins to its place in the mainstream – with a focus on the tensions the music produced, both culturally and politically – and the way those tensions helped raise some key questions about expression in England. The book is hardcover, 338 pages, with a smattering of black and white images. Book

Oliver NelsonStolen Moments (Inner City) ... LP
Inner City, 1975. Near Mint- ... $11.99 19.99
One of the last sessions Oliver Nelson ever recorded – a genius batch of work recorded for the Japanese East Wind label, and maybe one of his greatest albums ever! The set's a wonderful link between the sophisticated large group sounds that Nelson did for Impulse Records in the 60s, and some of the more expansive styles he was trying out on the Flying Dutchman imprint in the 70s – a batch of work that both has that sense of majesty that Nelson could command at his best, but which still retains an earthy vibe overall. The group is great – with soulful work from Bobby Bryant on trumpet, Jerome Richardson on soprano sax and flute, Buddy Collette on tenor and flute, and Jack Nimitz on baritone – and the rhythm section has some great Fender Rhodes from Mike Wofford, given more push from the electric bass of Chuck Dominico, and some open-ended drum work from Shelly Manne. Titles include a wonderful remake of Nelson's "Stolen Moments", the groover "Mission Accomplished", and the tracks "St Thomas", "Three Seconds", and "Yearnin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanNew York Calling (Inner City) ... LP
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem! During the mid 70s, Jackie McLean cut a few fantastic records that had a very spiritual vibe, and which added in a lot more soul than in previous sessions from the 60s. Part of the strength of these recordings – including this one – is the other musicians in the group – like the great Billy Gault, who wrote 2 tracks on the record, and who plays some very spiritual piano – or the excellent Billy Skinner, a young trumpeter who also emerges as a strong writer on this session. Other players include Rene McLean on alto and soprano, and Michael Carvin on drums – and tracks include "Camel Driver", "Some Other Time", "Adrian's Dance", and "Star Dancer". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grover Washington JrInner City Blues ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Sweet funky jazz from Grover Washington – an early standout session from his classic years on Kudu Records, put together with hip arrangements from the mighty Bob James! The record's got the same spacious sense of grooving as James' first few for CTI – a style that's funky fusion, but a bit more laidback than most – not nearly as jamming, and with almost as much focus on lean rhythms as on key solos from the players in the group! Most tracks have a long, open sort of feel – and in addition to alto and tenor from Grover, other instrumentation includes organ from Richard Tee, guitar from Eric Gale, drums from Idris Muhammad, percussion from Airto, and electric piano from Bob James himself. Titles include versions of "Mercy Mercy Me", "Ain't No Sunshine/Theme From Man & Boy", "Until It's Time For You To Go", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFar Out Presents Brazilian Bass – Inner City Tropical Soundblast ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very hip set that goes way beyond the stock bass-heavy grooves that have been showing up on other Brazilian compilations in recent years – and a package that really does a great job of reintroducing roots to contemporary urban music in Brazil! The album offers up a Brazilian take on the heavy sound of the bass – served up here in ways that echo famous modes in hip hop, reggae, and Afro Beat – but all with a uniquely Brazilian twist as well Tracks feature a range of contemporary artists who are taking grooves past the heavy, bombastic sound of the favelas – refining things a bit more up top, while still holding onto the powerful presence of the bottom – through a range of instrumentation that includes both acoustic and electric touches, and some key nods to older Brazilian styles as well! There's a sophistication here that goes way past any booty-shaking cliches – and, quite frankly, beyond the cover art too! Titles include "Olhe O Fogo" by Os Nelsons, "Pequi Week Bar" by Sistema Criolina, "Caroco" by Nsista, "Eu Acho E Pouco" by Soraia Drummond, "Travessias" by Anton Dub, "Nao Deixe De Lutar" by Junior Dread, and "Te Amarrado (Mangaio rmx)" by O Quadro.

Nat plays with a group that's a bit more far-reaching than the classic Cannonball funk ensembles he cut his teeth on. Players include Ken McIntyre, Onaje Allen Gumbs, and John Stubblefield, and the tracks have a bit more of a spiritual quality to them, although they are not without some of the Adderley trademark funk sound. Includes a great version of Harold Vick's "Don't Look Back", plus "Funny Funny", "I Think I Got It", and "K. High". LP, Vinyl record album

Otis BlackwellThese Are My Songs ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Otis Blackwell takes back his songs – providing his own new versions of tunes that were recorded famously by a host of rock, pop, and R&B artists back in the 50s! The 70s session is definitely done as part of the generation that was "giving back" to the roots of rock and roll – and Blackwell's performance here is possibly more tilted towards the rockers in the room than the R&B fans, given the used of heavy guitar on the record, and the cleaner style of production. Still, as a revivalist set, it's got plenty to offer – and Blackwell working with a small combo for backing, and sounding a bit Elvis-like at times – no surprise, given that Otis was supposedly a big influence on Presley. Titles include "All Shook Up", "Fever", "Daddy Rollin Stone", "Great Balls Of Fire", "Don't Be Cruel", "Searchin", "Hey Little Girl", and "Handy Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Funky French fusion from drummer Andre Ceccarelli – quite possibly his only album issued in the US, and a well-remembered set from the 70s! Andrew's working here with a shifting lineup on the sessions, and a fair bit of vocals as well – often in a mode that mixes soul and rock leanings with the jazzier styles of the main group. Singers include Chantal Alexandre and Alex Ligertwood – but the real standout moments on the record are the instrumental ones – especially the percussion jamming "Ded Circus", or the electric spacey passages of the "Life Is Only Real Here" suite. Other tracks include "Forget It", "I'm A Skunk", "Big City Bright", and "Space Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Urszula DudziakFuture Talk ... LP
Inner City, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A wonderful album of hip jazzy vocals from Urszula Dudziak – an amazing singer who was sort of Poland's version of Flora Purim! Like Flora, Urszula had a fierce scatting and riffing style that broke way past the work of earlier female jazz singers – and she always applied this style to some wonderfully catchy arrangements and tight grooves, using the voice as a heavily fused-up instrument. Also like Flora, Urszula had some good help from her husband – Polish jazz legend Michal Urbaniak, who produced and played on the album, along with friend of the family, the wonderful altoist Zbigniew Namyslovski. Tracks include a great version of Komeda's "The Cats", plus the tracks "Moontag", "Future Talk", "Klick", "Quiet Afternoon", and "Double Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy EldridgeLittle Jazz (Jazz Legacy) ... LP
Inner City, 1950. Near Mint- ... $4.99
There's nothing little about the talents of Roy Eldridge on the trumpet – as you'll hear in this hip set of tracks from the start of the 50s – material recorded in Paris with help from some great American sidemen! Half the tracks feature Roy's trumpet in a quintet with Zoot Sims on tenor, Dick Hyman on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums – grooving in the relaxed, swing-based style that you'd expect from Eldridge's 50s work on Verve. Roy sings just a bit on the set – scatting alongside the lead vocals from Anita Love on a version of "It Don't Mean A Thing" – and singing a duet with Anita on the R&B-ish "Ain't No Flies On Me". Other tracks include "King David", "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams", and "The Man I Love". Remaining tracks are also from Paris in June of 1950 – and feature Gerry Wiggins on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – on instrumental tunes that include "Wild Driver", "Easter Parade", "If I Had You", "Nuts", and "Goliath Bounce".

David FriesenStar Dance ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the more compelling sessions from the left side of the Inner City jazz label of the 70s – work that's partly fusion, but with plenty of aspects that push it far from the mainstream! Leader David Friesen plays acoustic bass on the set, but he's in a group with John Stowell on electric guitar, and the mighty Steve Gadd on drums – whose propulsive approach really drives the sound of the record strongly on some of the group numbers. Reedman Paul McCandless plays oboe and English horn, both unusual choices, but instruments that work well here – with an angularity that matches soprano sax usage in fusion during the 70s, although a bit warmer at times. Tracks are somewhat short, and include some really compelling solo numbers – recorded with a wonderfully round, soulful sound. Titles include "Winter's Fall", "Duet & Dialogue", "Mountain Streams", "A Little Child's Poem", "1 Rue Brey", "Star Dance", and "Children Of The Kingdom". LP, Vinyl record album

David Friesen & John StowellThrough The Listening Glass ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Groovy sounds from the team of David Friesen and John Stowell – mostly acoustic lines from the two string-based players, but with some other odd bits as well – and both soprano and tenor sax from Gary Campbell! The album's got a bit more bite than other albums by the pair – partially due to Campbell's saxes, but also due to a more sonic-sensitive sort of approach – one that almost echoes some ECM styles of the time, but in warmer, friendlier ways that we really like. Titles include "Tabla/Eternal Friend", "Wisdom's Star", "Frontal Dichotomy", "High Places", "Wings Of Light", "Through The Listening Glass", and "Secret Moments Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic work from Stan Getz! The sound here is wonderful – moody late 70s Getz, with some especially soulful moments on the mellow tracks too – that kind of spun-out blowing that we first started finding in Stan's career right around the Sweet Rain album, and which continued to show up beautifully on 70s albums like this! Joanne Brackeen plays some great piano in the quartet – including some electric keys too – and other players include Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Billy Hart on drums.

Dizzy GillespieHavin' A Good Time In Paris ... CD
Inner City, 1952. Used ... $6.99 9.99
Dizzy Gillespie plays here with the great Don Byas on tenor sax – joining Diz on two different Parisian dates from early 1952, both of them pretty darn sweet! The first session here is quite unusual – in that it features Humberto Cano on congas – bringing in a bit of a Cubop groove to a few key numbers on the date – a few takes of "Afro Paris" which rank right up there with any of Dizzy's best modern experiments back home. Other players on the date include Arnold Ross on piano and Bill Clark on drums – and titles include "Hurry Home" and "Say Eh", both presented in two takes. Remaining material is by a group that features Byas on tenor, Hubert Fol on alto sax, and Bill Tamper on trombone – on titles that include "Dizzy Song", "Cripple Crapple Crunch", and "Somebody Loves Me".

One of the most hard-burning Johnny Griffin records of the 70s – a cooking live se recorded in Tokyo, with energy that's much more freewheeling and open than his studio records of the time! The tracks are all quite long, and move with a quickly-expressive quality that's totally great – that fast-thinking tenor solo mode that Griff first forged back in Chicago, getting some great support here from a group that includes Horace Parlan on piano, Mads Vinding on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The interplay of the rhythm section really opens up the long tracks to plenty of creative exploration – and titles include "When We Were One", "All The Things You Are", "Wee", "The Man I Love", and "Soft & Furry".

A great session that was recorded in Tokyo in 1973 – featuring Abbey backed by a small group that includes Dave Liebman on sax and flute, Al Foster on drums, and Hiromasa Suzuki on piano. The record's pretty darn hip – and it's a nice version of Abbey's haunting approach to vocal jazz, touched by some of the new directions vocalists were going at the time, yet firmly rooted in the firm command of voice and emotion heard on Lincoln's best records from the early 60s. Titles include "Africa", "You & Me & Love", "Naturally", "Living Room", and "Natas", which seems to have Abbey singing along with overdubs of her own voice, to very cool effect!

An obscure later album by Jimmy Smith – but one that continues the trend of tighter jazz funk that he began in the 70s! The album's a tight studio session with Jimmy on the "Wersi Saturn W3T" organ, plus guitar by Howard Roberts and Dennis Budimir, piano by Ronnie Foster, trumpet by Oscar Brashear, and percussion by Paulinho Da Costa. The tracks run from straighter soul jazz organ numbers to more pumped-up ones that feel like 70s soundtrack work by Lalo Schifrin – no surprise, since Schifrin contributed 5 tracks to the set.

Lew TabackinDual Nature ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Lew Tabackin looks a bit stiff on the cover of this one (who wouldn't, in a tan polyester suit?) – but the record's a surprisingly hip date, and a great chance to hear Lew away from his 70s big band with Toshiko Akioshi! As the title and cover imply, the album features Tabackin's "dual nature" on reeds – with one side of flute performances, and another of tenor – both of which are surprisingly soulful. The flute work is somewhat sensitive, and beautifully done – almost poetic at points, and played with a style that's quite different than Lew's big band work. Group members include Don Friedman on piano, Bob Daughtery on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums and waterphone – a rhythm section that really matches the sensitivity of Tabackin's groove on the titles "Euteurpe", "Yellow Is Mellow", and "Out Of This World". The tenor work is a bit more hard-edged, almost boppish, but with a slightly more laidback feel – and titles include "No Dues Blues", "My Ideal", and a great take on "Russian Lullaby".

Man, Lew Tabackin looks pretty darn freaky on the cover image for this one – and although we're tempted to bill the record as his stag-like satyric fling away from his wife, Toshiko Akioshi is very much a key part of the session – contributing some wonderful songs and piano lines to the album's small combo groove! Lew plays flute throughout – blowing in these hauntingly snakey lines that are almost more in the spirit of music by cats like Chris Hinze or Jeremy Steig, than Tabackin's usual groove with his big band – a great change from the usual, recorded here with Toshiko on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and either John Heard or Bob Daugherty on bass. Titles include "Rites Of Pan", "Autumn Sea", "Be Bop", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Elusive Dream", and "Night Nymph". LP, Vinyl record album

Sadao Watanabe with The Great Jazz TrioBird Of Paradise ... LP
Inner City, 1980. Near Mint- ... $6.99 9.99
A fantastic album from saxophonist Sadao Watanabe – and one that stands at a real back-to-basics effort at a time when he was often recording in a more electric mode! The set has Sadao on alto, playing with the Great Jazz Trio of Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – a superb rhythm group who really help return Watanabe to the early bop roots of his youth – but with a tremendous tone that shows all the new sounds he was able to bring out of the alto sax during his more experimental years! The core trio are wonderful, too – every bit as great here as on their own excellent albums of the period – and obviously, Jones gets in some strong solos too – but we're almost even more in love with the work of Carter and Williams. Titles include "Donna Lee", "Star Eyes" "If I Should Lose You", "KC Blues", "Bird Of Paradise", and "Dexterity". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tal FarlowTrilogy ... LP
Inner City, 1981. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really lovely work from guitarist Tal Farlow – recording here long after his famous Verve Records years, but still sounding great! The title refers to the mostly trio format of the date – a session that has Tal on hollow-body electric, Mike Nock on piano, and Lyn Christie on bass – plus added drums on one of the album's last tracks. The trio format is really striking – a great blend of the round tones of Farlow's guitar, the harder notes of Nock's piano, and the mixture of plucked and bowed basslines from Christie – a player who brings a nice sort of warmth to the date. Drums appear on the well-titled "Funk Among The Keys" – a surprisingly funky number with a bit of a tripped out feel – and gentler trio titles include "My Shining Hour", "Wolf & The Lamb", "But Not For Me", "If I Should Lose You", "Angel Eyes", and "Falling In Love With Love".

Galper's working here with a quartet – playing piano in a group that includes Terumasa Hino on trumpet, Cecil McBee on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – all astounding players who really make the album sparkle with even more energy than some of Hal's great early 70s material on the Mainstream label. And with a rhythm section that hip, Terumasa Hino lays out some of his best work in years – searing trumpet solos over the top, stretched out but never too sloppy, as the tracks always maintain a strong rhythmic pulse and a lot of soul.

A wonderfully moody album from Abbey Lincoln – one that's a bit more laidback than some of her other efforts, but no less soulful! There's kind of a broken, jagged sound to the record – a late nite vibe that's blue and melancholy, and which gets some great support from the tenor sax of Archie Shepp – which often gets a chance to solo on most tracks! The rhythms are gentle, often a bit spare – and handled by Hilton Ruiz on piano, Jack Gregg on bass, and Freddie Waits on drums – and the set also features work from trumpeter Roy Burroughs. Tracks include three original compositions, "Painted Lady", "Throw It Away", and "Caged Bird", plus a sublime version of Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady". Also includes Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady", and Michel Legrand's "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cybill ShepherdMad About The Boy ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Surprisingly wonderful work by Cybill Shepherd – recorded early in her career, and a very serious attempt to express herself as a jazz vocalist! Part of the reason for the success is the fact that Cybill's working here with a great group that includes Stan Getz on tenor, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Monty Budwig on bass, and other west coast players – but another part of the success is Cybill's warm and sweet vocals, as evocative at this point as she was in her fine performances on film. Instrumentation often hits a cool, breezy sort of sound – almost bossa at some of the best points, which really transforms the older tunes! Titles include "Triste", "I Can't Get Started", "I'm Falling In Love Again", "Do It Again", "Speak Low", "It Never Entered My Mind", and a great grooving take on "Mad About The Boy".

✨✧ Cecil TaylorDark To Themselves ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – as the record features strong tenor from a young David S Ware – as well as trumpet from Raphe Malik and alto from Jimmy Lyons – who all spin out with freewheeling creativity, alongside Taylor's bold lines on piano, and the drums of Marc Edwards. As with other Taylor albums of the time, the set's built around one long performance – of a tune entitled "Streams & Chorus Of Seed" – put together in a way that have the horns layering over one another, building up sound next to Taylor's free piano improvisations – then taking off on their own! Extremely spirited work – and a great showcase for the young Ware! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaCosmos ... LP
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
One of the best-remembered Sun Ra albums from the 70s – a really cool little session that features Ra playing the unusual "rocksichord" all the way through! The instrument's a very weird one – kind of like a messed-up electric piano, with lots of cool broken notes and a weird fuzzed-out tone – one that almost feels like a guitar's being fitted into a keyboard, with almost psychedelic results! Ra's use of the rocksichord gives the album a really eerie, outer spacey sound – one that mixes strongly with more familiar jazz lines from John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto and flute, Danny Thompson on baritone, and Ahmed Abdullah on trumpet. Titles include "The Mystery Of Two", "Interstellar Low Ways", "Cosmos", "Moonship Journey", "Neo-Project #2", and "Jazz From An Unknown Planet". LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1969/1971. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great record – and on that hardly ever shows up on the radar screen of Gil's career! The session was recorded with a very hip group that includes Billy Harper on tenor and flute, Elvin Jones and Alphonze Mouzon on drums, Joe Beck on electric guitar, and Herb Bushler on Fender bass. The sound is a bit electric, but is touched with Evans' far-reaching arranging style, so that it lapses into none of the cliches you might expect. Harper is a treat, as always, and he offers up the original composition "Thoroughbred", one of the nicest on the record. "Blues In Orbit", "Variation On The Misery", "Proclamation", and "Spaced".

George BensonWhile The City Sleeps ... LP
Warner, 1986. Very Good ... $3.99
This one's far more of a straight soul album than most of George Benson's earlier vocal sets – but as usual, the work is pretty high caliber throughout – and George is definitely on top of his game here, effortlessly beating others at the style they'd all started to cop from Benson by the time! Production is mostly by Narada Michael Walden, with that mix of warmth and depth that graced most of his soul sides from the time – but other tracks also get production from Kashif and Tommy LiPuma, who definitely up the pop quotient on the set. Titles include "Teaser", "Shiver", "While The City Sleeps", "Kisses In The Moonlight", "Too Many Times", and "Did You Hear Thunder". LP, Vinyl record album

Dos SantosCity Of Mirrors ... LP
International Anthem, 2021. New Copy ... $22.99 23.99
The notes on the cover use the term "Latinx Futurist" to refer to the work of Dos Santos – and that may be one of the best ways we've ever heard to describe their really unique blend of modes – served up here with a sound that firmly places the group at the crossroads of some great contemporary currents of music! Instrumentation is a familiar blend of percussion, guitar, and keyboards – but the presentation is nicely unique – as echoes of older Latin styles come into play with more creative elements, all in a small combo mode that's produced to perfection by Elliot Bergman – who did plenty of his own genre-crossing work in the group Nomo over the years. Lead vocals are by Alex Chavez, a really wonderful singer – and titles include "Shot In The Dark", "City Of Mirrors", "Palo Santo", "Jaguar De Rosas", "Lejos De Ti", and "Glorieta".

Ron EverettGlitter Of The City ... LP
Vagabond King, 1977. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of the rarest and most unusual albums to come out of the Philly scene in the 70s – and that's saying a lot, given the unique and obscure quality of so many indie sides on small Philadelphia labels! Ron Everett's a singer, with roots that go back to the doo wop scene of the 50s – but he's also a pianist and a trumpeter, and works here in an unusual 70s variant of earlier soul jazz modes – not spiritual, but instead more grooving overall, with vocals on a number of tracks – and strongly focus instrumentation on the others – all with the sort of gritty vibe you'd be more likely to hear at a small club in the city than you would coming from the record labels at the time. Musicians shift from track to track – and other players include Charles King on piano, Earl Womack on bass, Lex Humphries on drums, Jimmy Savage on alto, and Robert Shabazz on tenor – most of whom are as obscure as Everett. There's plenty of surprises throughout the set – and titles include "Let Your Spirit Be Free", "Pretty Little Girl", "Royal Walk", "Mood Two Latin For You", "Glitter Of The City", "New Rock Joy", and "Tipsey Lady".

Avco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Sweet stepping Van – an excellent album of instrumental grooves recorded right before his "Hustle" fame, but with a very similar feel! The sound is almost that of Sigma Philly – but things are a bit more polished, and there's more of a focus on the strings and woodwinds than the solos you'd get from a Philly instrumental album. But that's really ok with us, as the overall sound is still quite nice, and there's a few strong original cuts that really stand out in the set. Highlights include "African Symphony", "Love Is The Answer", "Funky Feet", and "Boogie Down". LP, Vinyl record album

AceyaloneAll Balls Don't Bounce ... LP
Capitol, 1995. Near Mint- 2LP ... $39.99
Aceyalone's solo effort from the mid 90's, after the Freestyle Fellowship's major label LP "Inner City Griots" failed to make an impact in the larger, commercial world of Hip Hop. Production was handled by a lot of the more underground LA folks of the same period: Fat Jack, the Nonce, Mumbles & Vic Hop, and Abstract Rude of the FF makes a guest appearance. "Mic Check" & "All Balls" were the singles, but this one's filled with memorable tracks, when more adventurous hip hop was a lot less common: "Anywhere You Go", "Greatest Show On Earth" & "B-Boy Kingdom". 15 cuts in all, counting the couple of interludes, and because this was a promo-only vinyl pressing (during that black patch of the 90's when so much wasn't pressed on vinyl), many of the tracks are clean edits for radio play.

Anthony BraxtonIn The Tradition Vol 2 ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1976. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Anthony Braxton – an album that has him playing straight ahead jazz – but at a time when he was also making some of his most complex recordings of the 70s! The approach here is sublime – as Braxton's reputation has ears already anticipating some far-out playing, but then marvel at his restraint – his care for keeping alto and bass clarinet work inside a straight jazz tradition, yet always hinting at the modern inflections he can bring to his music! Tunes are almost all jazz standards, blown beautifully – with a tone that's crisp, cool, and very inviting – surprisingly soulful, and never cold at all – matched well with the rhythm trio of Tete Montoliu on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Donna Lee", "My Funny Valentine" and "Half Nelson". LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
One of the biggest records ever from The Chi-Lites – thanks to the "Oh Girl" title hit that's referenced on the cover! But apart from that ballad classic, the record's actually got a heck of a lot more to offer – some incredible harmony soul tracks that show that even during their hit years, The Chi-Lites were one of those groups who could still stay true to their roots – and still come up with amazing tunes again and again! Mainman Eugene Record is at the helm producing and writing most of the tunes on the set – and some of the best numbers have that little gentle groove that was the best Chi-soul contribution to the sound of the 70s – that lilt or bounce from the 60s, turned towards slightly more sophisticated modes for the new generation. Titles include "Being In Love", "Love Is", "Coldest Days Of My Life", "Living In the Footsteps Of Another Man", "Ain't Too Much Of Nothing", and "A Lonely Man" – and a cover of "Inner City Blues". CD also features the bonus track "The Coldest Days Of My Life (part 1)". CD

The crowning achievement of ELO at their best – a double-length set in which the genius of Jeff Lynne gets extra space to fully flower – and his mighty talents don't let up for a minute! The record's given us some classics over the years – standout tracks like "Mr Blue Sky", "Turn To Stone", and "Sweet Talkin Woman" – but the whole thing works perfectly together – as a sublime sonic treat that has all the Lynne studio genius coming into full focus, moving between different textures of electricity and light, through a set of songs that sound infinitely different than the group just a few years before. Other tracks include "It's Over", "Night In The City", "Starlight", "Jungle", "Believe Me Now", "Steppin Out", "Sweet Is The Night", "Standing In The Rain", "Summer & Lightning", "Wild West Hero", "The Whale", and "Birmingham Blues".

A sweetly swinging seventies set from pianist Tommy Flanagan – one of those records that's a perfect balance between the bop-inspired dexterity of his work on the keyboard, and that undeniable warmth he always brought to his best recordings! Tommy's got maybe a bit more bite on the keys, especially when moving at a quicker pace – and backing is by George Mraz on bass, whose round tones emphasize the warmer elements, and Elvin Jones on drums – who may well be part of the reason for the bite! The set features a number of bop classic tunes – like "Oleo", "Confirmation", and "Relaxin At Camarillo" – plus the great title cut "Eclypso", and a moody reading of Tom McIntosh's excellent "The Cup Bearers".

Marvin GayeWhat's Going On ... CD
Motown, 1971. Used ... $1.99
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". CD

Marvin GayeWhat's Going On – Live ... LP
Motown, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 26.99
A tremendous live performance from Marvin Gaye – recorded at the Kennedy Center in 1972, and based around his classic album What's Going On – yet handled in a completely different way! The set's not just a straight reading of the record – as the song order is different, and the presentation is unusual too – with Marvin at the piano, bringing a more intimate style to some of the songs – while also opening them up with looser, more fluid backings – all in ways that show us just how much was going on in his ever-fertile mind during this high point of creativity! The material was issued originally as a bonus CD of the deluxe release of the core album – but it stands proudly here on its own, in a new package that also offers up an even better mix of the music than before. Titles include "Wholy Holy", "Save The Children", "Right On", "Inner City Blues", "What's Going On", "Flyin High", and "God's Love" – plus a very cool 13 minute "Sixties Medley", which offers changed-up takes on Marvin Gaye tunes from the earlier years of Motown.

Penny's got a voice that's instantly recognizable – a bit raspy, in the mode of Esther Phillips – but cooler and more sophisticated, with a Marlena Shaw-like hipness that really fits the tracks on the set. Most of the numbers are traditional jazz standards, swung by Penny and a small piano trio – in a mode that's a lot more intimate than, but equally soulful to, the fuller backings used on her classic Portrait Of A Gemini album.

Maybe it's the cover image, but there's a rock-solid quality to the record that seems to make this set stand out just a bit more from the group's 70s classics – a balance between hard rockers, crossover cuts, and even the album's lone ballad, "Beth" which certainly won over a few fans who might have been holding out a bit – nestled alongside other tunes that include "Detroit Rock City", "King Of The Night Time World", "God Of Thunder", "Flaming Youth", "Shout It Out Loud", "Sweet Pain", and "Do You Love Me".

The songs aren't as overtly strident as the ones on Sometime In New York City, but there's plenty of passion bubbling under the surface – and the struggle to be as honest and passionate as he can be without bludgeoning us over the head with his feelings brings an underlying tension the work as whole that's pretty amazing to this day.

Steeplechase (Denmark), 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great meeting of two generations of jazz – and one that really blows the top off some of Dexter Gordon's other European sessions of the time! The setting here is definitely one that's more a Gordon-based date – long tracks with rhythm backing from a trio with Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums. But unlike some of the other long-blown Gordon-heavy albums for the stretch, the presence of Jackie McLean really brings in a new sort of fire – the kind of soaring, soulful energy he brought to his own records in these immediate post-Blue Note years – almost a Coltrane influence, and a sense of spiritualism that really comes through on some of his solo moments – even in this relatively straight setting. Titles include Gordon's "All Clean", Sahib Shihab's "Rue De La Harpe", Drew's "Sunset", and a nice take of "On The Trail". LP, Vinyl record album

Most numbers here have some acoustic guitar over slightly funky rhythms – perfectly scored to work with Rodriguez's raspy soul vocals, which have an undeniably heartfelt style – somewhere in a space between Terry Callier and early Jose Feliciano, but very much its own mode too! This CD features great gems from Rodriguez's years at Sussex Records – including three tracks not on the albums – "Can't Get Away", "Street Boy", and "I'll Slip Away" – plus other titles that include "Sugar Man", "Cause", "I Wonder", "Like Janis", "Jane S Piddy", "I Think Of You", "Inner City Blues", and "Sandrevan Lullaby Lifestyles".

An ultra-hip set of soul jazz from 70s Detroit – recorded back in the day by saxophonist Sam Sanders, but never issued at the time! The album's got this wonderfully warm, open sort of vibe – a quality that's kind of like an indie take on the CTI mode of the time, but much more relaxed – and nicely directed towards soul as well, given the vocals that grace some of the album's best moments! Some tunes are right on the money, with an undercurrent of funk – but other moments get a bit wilder and more righteous, in the style you'd expect from the legendary Strata Records imprint! Core instrumentation is by a combo that features Sanders on alto, plus lots of great keyboards, and guitar, baritone, and percussion. Vocals are by Jamil and Kenneth Harris – plus an unnamed female singer too – and titles include "Inner City Player", "Face At My Window", "Loser", "Funked Up", "Love's Gain", and "Summer Mist".

The style isn't exactly funky, but it's got some fully soulful sounds, and some great electric moments too – modes that almost feel more like some of the best Kudu Records vocal sets from the time, instead of the usual Mainstream Records groove. Sarah really fits well in this sort of setting – stretching out into groovier territory than before with the same sense of change that Ella Fitzgerald or Marlena Shaw were bringing to their music at the time. Players include Jerome Richardson on saxes, Buddy Childers on trumpet, Benny Powell on trombone, Jimmy Cobb on percussion, and Earl Palmer on drums – and titles include "Inner City Blues", "Magical Connection", "Universal Prisoner", "Tomorrow City", "That's The Way I've Always Heard It", "Imagine", "On Thinking It Over", and "If Not For You".

Grover Washington JrAnthology ... CD
Motown, Mid 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
A tasty 2CD set that brings together some of the best soul jazz tracks from Grover's years at the Kudu label! As is well remembered by beatheads, Grover had an amazing style at the time – a snakey electric groove that was perfect for the sounds of the early 70s – playing soprano sax in a spare yet funky way, working perfectly with arrangements by Bob James, and some killer bass and drum riffs that are forever being sampled and re-discovered today! The set picks a nice batch of hits and LP tracks – 24 in all – and all cuts are long and open-ended – in the tightly produced funky style that Grover pioneered. Tracks include "Mister Magic", "Black Frost", "Bright Moments", "Juffure", "Lean On Me", "Body & Soul", "Where Is The Love", "Inner City Blues", "Aubrey", "All The King's Horses", "Feels So Good", "Santa Cruzin", "Snake Eyes", "Dolphin Dance", "Reed Seed", "Trouble Man", "Mercy Mercy Me", and "Easy Lovin You".

VariousBaia Degli Angeli Vol 1 – 1977 to 1978 – The Legendary Italian Discoteque Of The 70s ... LP
Amarkord (Italy), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99 39.99
A much-needed look at a key force in Italian disco – the legendary Baia Degli Angeli, a club that was as important to Europe as the Paradise Garage was to New York! The set features a great selection of numbers that played strongly on Angeli's dancefloor in the late 70s, most of which have a spacey electronic quality that links them strongly to some of the best underground club of New York at the time. Titles include "I Got To Have Your Love" by Fantastic Four, "Nightlife" by Blair, "J'Ouvert" by John Gibbs, "Funky Bass" by Arpadys, "Inner City Blues" by Paul Lewis, "Tonight's The Night" by SSO Orchestra, "Let's Get Together" by Pam Todd & Love Exchange, "Superstar" by Bob McGilpin, "Cosmic Melody" by Constellation Orchestra, "Sweet Dynamite" by Claudja Barry, and "Dance Little Dreamer" by Bionic Boogie.

VariousMainstream Funk – Funk, Soul, & Spiritual Jazz 1971 to 1975 ... CD
Mainstream/We Want Sounds (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Funky jazz and a touch of soul – all pulled from the short-lived but legendary Mainstream Records – home to a whole host of hip artists in the early half of the 70s! Mainstream picked things up from Impulse, Prestige, and other soulful labels of the 60s – allowing jazz musicians to stretch out with a new sense of expression, but often in ways that hit a mighty nice groove – kind of a 70s update of the soul jazz modes of the generation before, but with a few spiritual jazz touches too! You'll know a few names here from older Blue Note recordings, and they've got an updated 70s vibe, and are matched with some hip younger talents too – all in a great array of grooves that's superbly selected throughout. Titles include "Inner City Blues" by Sarah Vaughan, "M'Bassa" by Lamont Johnson, "Last Tango In Paris" by Blue Mitchell, "Betcha Can't Guess My Sign" by Prophecy, "Family Affair" by Dave Burrell, "Right Off" by John White, "Betty's Bossa" by Johnny Coles, "Little Heart Of Pieces" by Barry Miles, "Quiet Afternoon" by Buddy Terry, "Matrix" by Mike Longo, and "It's The Right Thing" by Pete Yellin.

Enja (Germany), 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An extremely beautiful set of tracks, and one of our favorite Dollar Brand albums from the time. Dyani is caught in a very spare setting, with a rare opportunity to hear him moving slowly and subtly down the bass – a perfect pairing for Brand's haunting piano lines. The best cut is the side-long "Namhanje", which features both players moving along in a tight modal rhythm, singing in tandem along with their instruments! LP, Vinyl record album

Motown, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In our humble opinion, just about every track that Marvin recorded for Motown is "great" – but since this set's focused on the hits, we're happy to accept their track selection, and admit they do a pretty good job of covering most of the big bases – early solo gems, duet classics, and some of the sublime 70s numbers that really made Marvin's music sparkle! Titles include "What's Going On", "Inner City Blues", "Trouble Man", "Let's Get It On", "Distant Lover", "Got To Give It Up", "Heard It Through The Grapevine", "That's The Way Love is", and "If I Could Build My Whole World Around You".

✨✧ Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (original Detroit mix) ... CD
Motown/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". This limited Japanese pressing presents the rare Detroit mix – done in the Motor City before the final version in California – slightly different in a few ways, but with all the heavenly elements still intact! The vocals are especially cool – maybe more upfront in the mix, so much so that they really stand out from the larger mix – even the background voices that come in and out of the tracks which you can normally never hear. Great stuff – and a very different look at this classic. CD

✨✧ MetersNew Directions ... LP
Warner, 1977. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Meters take their Crescent City groove in a slightly different direction – giving things a warmer, sunnier feel than their previous records – and bringing in a fair bit more vocals, too – yet still keeping all the right funky elements at the bottom! The move is a bit like that made by Allen Toussaint when he was helping out so many other artists in LA during the 70s – a tightness that's different than indie funk, but also a great way to evolve the New Orleans sound past its more regional roots! In other words, don't expect The Meters on Josie – but appreciate the record as a great bit of mainstream funk – one that has the Neville Brothers doing some of their best vocals as The Meters lay into a groove. Titles include "No More Okey Doke", "Funkify Your Life", "Give It What You Can", "My Name Up In Lights", "We Got The Kind Of Love", and "Be My Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arlo ParksSuper Sad Generation (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatnik, 2021. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arlo Parks may be part of the super sad generation, but her music makes us plenty happy – as the British singer/songwriter has a way of reaching out with her own flaws and fragility, and making a very welcome space in her sound for her audience! The tunes are nicely understated – usually just some simple beats or keyboards, with Parks' vocals processed slightly so that they fit down in the mix with this crispy sort of melancholy – almost as if the music is recreating the feel of walking down a city street on a rainy day – thoughts to oneself, but with a mixture of introspection and resolve. Titles include "Romantic Garbage", "Second Guessing", "Angel Song", "Paperbacks", "London Poem", "I Like", and "Cola". LP, Vinyl record album

The Sea & Cake's most instantly addictive album in years – one that blends the more anthemic style of their recent work with some bubbling synthy grooves! The group is nothing if not consistent, and they don't radically rework the set structure – with Sam Prekop's effervescent, breathy vocals over arrangements that sometimes lean on the uptempo rockishness that accented the previous LP, along with more glossy electronic impulses. Another essential album from one of our favorite Chicago bands! Titles include "Aerial", "A Fuller Moon", "On A Letter", "Car Alarm", "Weekend", "New Schools", "Window Sills", "Down In The City", "Pages", "The Staircase", "Mirrors" and more.

✨✧ VariousFunky Chimes – Belgian Grooves From The 70s ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funk from Belgium? Believe it or not, stranger things have happened – and we can promise that if you played these tracks back to back with more familiar grooves from other 70s sources, you'd quickly find that these Belgian grooves are right up there with the best of the bunch! The set's maybe a more sophisticated follow-up to the excellent Funky Chicken collection, which documented some grittier Belgian 70s material a few years back – and this one shows off a wickedly sharp batch of tunes that include funky fusion, sweet sound library numbers, and lots of really inventive cuts that are plenty funk, but often take some great chances too – in ways that almost make us think that the nation's scene was so small that musicians from different genres were often hanging out together, and breaking down lots of musical boundaries in the process! As with the other set, the presentation here is wonderful – not just fantastic music we'd never have discovered otherwise, but also very detailed notes and an overall punch that few other funky compilations can match. Titles include "Funky Chimes" by Francis Coppieters, "My Chinese Girl Likes Kung Fu Fighting" by The Sumos, "Traveling On Rhythms" by Bud Hunga & His Diplomatic Music, "Pink Movement" by Experience, "Tiger Walk" by The Peter Laine Orchestra, "Faded Lady (inst)" by SSO, "Barabajagal" by The Flying Guitar, "Scratch My Back (parts 1 & 2)" by The Soul Scratchers, "Skylab" by Electronic System III, "Free Way Exit" by Guido Carnagy, "Guess We'd Better Break Up Now" by Etta Cameron, "Give It Up Or Turn It A Loose" by Philip Catherine, "Riff For Peggy" by Roland Thyssen, "We Love The Policemen" by Hearts Of Soul & Shampoo, "Smoke Signal" by Indian Sound Of Blackfoot, "Inner City Blues" by Leslie Kent, "Chewing Gum Delirium" by Free Pop Electronic Concept, "Akkerwinde" by Lieven, "Concerto For Right Foot & Orchestra" by George Hayes & His Philarpopic Orchestra, "Punktowiec" by Skleroptak, and "Soul Melody" by R Dero.

✨✧ Kenny DrewDark Beauty ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1974. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great title for this one – as the album's got a dark edge that's quite different than some of Kenny Drew's earlier work – the start of a great run of recordings for Steeplechase Records on the European scene of the 70s – and a demonstration of Drew's real powers when he can really open up and run! The trio date has a wonderfully full sort of feel – those long flowing lines that Kenny was already doing well back in the 50s, but given a bit more of a spiritual vibe here at times – thanks in part to the sensitive rhythms of Albert Tootie Heath, and the surprisingly creative bass work of Niels Henning Orsted Pederson – even more compelling here than usual! Titles include "Run Away", "Dark Beauty", "All Blues", and "Summer Nights". LP, Vinyl record album

EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very cool little album from Placebo – arguably the group's most soulful session ever, and one that draws heavily from American funky jazz at the start of the 70s! The grooves are nice and tight, and keyboards are focused on the most soulful sort of riffs – not nearly as tripped out as in later years, and really doing a great job of sending home the funky rhythms – almost in a way that's sort of early CTI at the best points! Marc Moulin's genius is already firmly in place – and he handles all arrangements, plus plays Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and even what sounds like a bit of moog! Titles include "Humpty Dumpty", "Aria", "Showbiz Suite", "Ball Of Eyes", "You Got Me Hummin", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1977. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electric fusion from violinist Noel Pointer – a player so great, you'll forget that he's using an instrument you normally associate with sleepier music! Like others of the 70s generation, Pointer plays the violin in a way that's clearly heavily influenced by keyboards of the time – electric in amplification, and worked in a mode that uses the instrument to create waves of sound that flow out amongst the tighter fusion rhythms of the set. Dave Grusin arranged and produced the set – in his best lean soulful mode of the time – and other players include Earl Klugh, Ralph MacDonald, Steve Gadd, and Grusin himself. Titles include "Mirabella", "Night Song", "Living For The City", "Phantazia", and "Wafaring Stranger". LP, Vinyl record album

There's nothing too ghetto here – given that the work on the set all comes from the Miami soul powerhouse of TK Records – a company that was always known for a tight, well-crafted groove! And while TK had plenty of chart hits during the disco years, there's a number of cuts here that are lesser-known, and also presented in different mixes too – served up by DJ Nori in one extended 70 minute mix, but which still fits most of the tracks into the groove in a very complete way! Titles include "Keep It Up" by Milton Wright, "Inner City Blues" by Paul Lewis, "Do You Like That Way That It Feels" by Tempest Trio, "Bahama Soul Stew (DK edit)" by Funky Nassau, "Spank (inst 12" re-edit)" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Get On Down" by King Sporty, "Where Is The Love" by Betty Wright, "Dance to The Drummer's Beat (Harvey's nightclub re-edit)" by Herman Kelly, "For The Love Of It" by Lonnie Smith, "Ghetto Disco" by Ted Taylor, and "Music (DJ Nori edit)" by Montreal.
