✨✧ Ivan Boogaloo Joe JonesSnake Rhythm Rock ... LP
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tasty batch of funky jazz cuts from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones – working here in a tight guitar groove that's actually better than that heard on his early albums for Prestige! The group's a good one – with Rusty Bryant on tenor, Butch Cornell on organ, and Grady Tate on drums – but it's Ivan's funky guitar style that reall makes the whole thing work, as his fingerwork on the strings is enough to make any jazz-funk hopeful give up their guitar for life! Titles include "Hoochie Coo Chickie", "Snake Rhythm Rock", "He's So Fine", and "Big Bad Midnight Roller". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original green label pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has a split top seam, some wear and aging, and some sticker spots on front.)

✨✧ Ivan Boogaloo Joe JonesSweetback ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A monster set of work by one of the funkiest guitar players ever! Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones recorded a number of sides for Prestige Records during the early 70s – but this rare gem came out after all those, in 1975, on the tiny Joka label, and never really got into proper circulation at the time – making it one of THE indie jazz funk classics of the 70s! The album's actually one of Boogaloo's best – and has a rougher edge than his Prestige albums – heard to great effect on the two standout funky cuts, "Sweetback" and "Confusion" – both of which are stunners that feature Jones really ripping away on the guitar! The whole set's nice, though – and other tracks include "You've Got It Bad Girl", "Trouble In Mind", and "Jamaica Farewell". CD
(Reissued with the original cover!)

✨✧ Boogaloo Joe JonesLegends Of Acid Jazz – No Way/What It Is ... CD
Prestige, 1970/1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Prepare yourself for some massive guitar-heavy funk – with 2 classic Prestige albums from the legendary Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! First up is No Way – a record that features him working with a young Grover Washington Jr on tenor, whose got a sound here that's way harder than on some of his later albums – and right up there with the best of the Prestige jazz funk greats. Sonny Phillips plays organ and electric piano, and the dark horse Butch Cornell gets in some organ licks on 2 tracks. Bernard Purdie holds down the fort nicely on drums, and the album's got a nice Fender bass to groove things strong in the rhythm department. Tracks include "No Way", "Holdin Back", "If You Were Mine", "Sunshine Alley", and "I'll Be There". What It Is is more killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones! Grover Washington Jr makes an incredible appearance here – sounding much harder and heavier than on some of his Kudu recordings – more of a gritty soul jazz player, working beautifully alongside the sharp guitar of Boogaloo Joe Jones, and the sweet organ of Sonny Phillips! The groove is lean, clean, and a bit laidback – not as frenetic as some of Jones' other jams, but in a great way that shows a new sense of space and timing in his groove! Other players include Bernard Purdie on drums and Jimmy Lewis on Fender bass – and titles include "Inside Job", "Fadin", "What It Is", and a nice cover of "Ain't No Sunshine". Amazing guitar work throughout – and a very tight batch of funky jazz! CD

✨✧ Boogaloo Joe JonesRight On Brother (RVG remaster edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic album of funky jazz guitar – by one of the best players in the genre! This is Ivan's first truly sublime album – a set that showed the world that he was easily one of the greatest jazz guitarists of his generation – able to spin out single-note jams with a speed and dexterity that few others could match! The groove here is totally great and very righteous – heavy drums from Bernard Purdie, wailing organ from Charles Earland, and saxophone from Rusty Bryant – all cooking together in the best early 70s Prestige jazz funk mode! Titles include "Right On", "Brown Bag", "Things Ain't What They Used To Be", and "Poppin". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – 45 single versions of "Right On" and "Someday We'll Be Together Again".

Ronny JordanAntidote ... CD
Island, 1992. Used ... $4.99
A classic bit of London funky guitar from Ronny Jordan – the heir apparent to Grant Green and Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones – and one of the best new players of his generation! The set takes the older funky guitar styles of the 60s soul jazz generation, and fuses it with a 90s nujazz approach – to come up with some tight groovers that have a surprisingly classic feel, yet which also sparkle with the fresher sounds of the time – some of the hip rhythms that were bubbling around in London during the Talking Loud and early Acid Jazz years. Titles include a great remake of "So What", the jazz/hip hop classic "Get To Grips", and the cuts "Cool & Funky", "Summer Smile", "Show Me", "Nite Spice", and "After Hours". CD

✨✧ Sonny PhillipsSure 'Nuff ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint- ... $29.99
This is probably the best album ever cut by one of the lesser-known Prestige jazz funk organ players – and it's got a nice group that includes Virgil Jones and Houston Person, along with Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones and Bernard Purdie. The title cut – "Sure Nuff, Sure Nuff" – is a monster groover, and the album's got some other nice ones like "The Other Blues", "Mobile To Chicago", and "Oleo" – all of which are nice and long! LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese Lexington pressing from the 90s, still in shrink.)

✨✧ SouliveGet Down ... CD
Velour, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hard jamming jazz funk from the always-great Soulive – recording here in their original trio format – nicely stripped down into a stone-heavy groove of organ, drums, and guitar! The tracks are really great – with both an approach to the music and style of production that recall the legendary Prestige Records jazz funk sides of the early 70s, including work by Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones and Melvin Sparks, both of whom were quite an influence on the group! 7 tracks in all – all nice, long, loud, and funky – with titles that include "So Life", "Uncle Junior", "Rudy's Way", "Turn It Out", "Brother Soul", and "Right On". CD
(Out of print.)
