✨✧ James BookerClassified ... LP
Rounder, 1982. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Later work from New Orleans legend James Booker – but a set that may well be one of his greatest records ever – a real back to basics effort recorded with a hands-off approach that almost makes you feel like you're catching Booker in some small club down off the Quarter! James plays piano and sings throughout – bringing a special magic to tunes that include a few surprises, mixed with a few of his own numbers too – and half the set features additional backing from Alvin Tyler on tenor, James Singleton on bass, and John Vidacovich on drums. Titles include "Madame X", "Hound Dog", "Classified", "All Around The World", "Bald Head/Tipitina", "Baby Face", and "Three Keys". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James BookerLost Paramount Tapes ... LP
Paramount/General General, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little set from New Orleans legend James Booker – a previously unissued session from 1973 – recorded in LA with a great array of well-matched players! Booker's on piano, playing with a chunky, rough-edged groove – pretty funky at times, thanks especially to the great John Boudreaux on drums – best known for his classic lines on early work by Dr John! Other players on the date include Alvin Robinson on guitar, David Lastie on sax, and Jessie Hill on tambourine and vocals – and although the album never got the final studio polish it might have, were it released at the time, that aspect actually makes it great – and helps it retain all of its most rough-edged moments. Titles include "Hole In The Wall", "Tico Tico", "Feel So Bad", "Junco Partner", "Lah Tee Tah", "African Gumbo", "So Swell When You're Well", and "Goodnight Irene". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don Patterson & Booker ErvinLegends Of Acid Jazz – Exciting New Organ Of Don Patterson – plus bonus tracks ... CD
Prestige, 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tasty set of extended organ/tenor grooves – one full album, plus bonus tracks! The core album here is The Exciting New Organ Of Don Patterson – a well-titled session, given the strong early groove of organist Don! At a time when some of his contemporaries were tightening things up on the Hammond, going for shorter tunes aimed at the jukebox and radio crowd, Don Patterson was a great reminder that the organ was best used on longer jamming tracks – tunes that stretched out nicely with a style that was heard best in the clubs, where an organ player could really do his thing. Patterson's trio here is quite stripped down – just drums from Billy James, and tenor from Booker Ervin – another player who always knows what to do with plenty of space! Titles include versions of "The Good Life", "When Johnny Comes Marching Home", and "Oleo", plus two Patterson originals – "Up In Betty's Room" and "S'Bout Time". Added to these tracks are 2 more – the 16 minute "Hip Cake Walk", which features alto from Leonard Houston too, plus "Love Me With All Your Heart". CD

ApostlesApostles ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic funk from The Apostles – a group who were easily one of the most hard-hitting on the African scene of the 70s – and one who definitely absorbed key currents from a range of American artists – from James Brown through Booker T & The MGs! The groove here is totally great – and almost as appealing to standard funk fans as to listeners looking for more Afro-styled sounds – although a few numbers also move into slightly trippy Zamrock territory, which gives the album an even greater sense of depth! The basslines, drums, and guitars are totally great – and titles include "Highway To Success", "Never Too Late", "Play Girl", "Inflation", "Don't Worry", and "Guest Of HOnor". CD

Delvon Lamarr Organ TrioClose But No Cigar ... CD
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $10.99
An organ trio, and one with plenty of soul – romping drums, riffing guitar, and some mighty sweet work on the Hammond by Delvon Lamarr! This is the first we've ever heard of the group, but they're rock solid and right on the money – working with a lean, hard style that's completely classic, but also a bit contemporary too – maybe swinging in the best sort of space between the Jack McDuff Quartet of the 60s and the Sugarman Three group of Desco Records fame! David McGraw handles the drums with a clear love of funk, and Jimmy James is wonderfully wicked on guitar – never trying to dominate too much, as there's no need – given how much he brings to the overall groove. Delvon's a hell of an organist too – the kind that knows that a little can often go much farther than a lot when handling the electric keys – which he does to set up some sweet solos on cuts that include "Ain't It Funky", "Al Greenery", "Can I Change My Mind", "Walk On By", "Between The Mustard & The Mayo", "Raymond Brings The Greens", and "Little Booker T".

VariousSweet Soul Music 1962 – 28 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1962. Used ... $19.99
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Playboy" by The Marvelettes, "Night Train" by James Brown, "Cry To Me" by Solomon Burke, "I Know" by Barbara George, "I Found A Love" by The Falcons, "You Better Move On" by Arthur Alexander, "Release Me" by Esther Phillips, "Chains" by The Cookies, "I've Got A Woman (part 1)" by Jimmy McGriff, "I Need Your Lovin" by Don Gardner & Dee Dee Ford, "Snap Your Fingers" by Joe Henderson, and "Green Onions" by Booker T & The MGs.

✨✧ Freddie HubbardHub-Tones ... LP
Blue Note (Czech Republic), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album with a classic modernist cover image – and one that's also got the same sort of sound to match – brilliant early work from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, who's really coming into his own as a leader with this date! Freddie's really finding a voice here – a sharper edge than on some of his later albums, at the beginning of a more modernist phase in the mid-60s – when his efforts would mark him as one of the more straight ahead players of the "new thing" scene. There's a careful balance in Hubbard's work here – spurred on by youthful energy of group mates Herbie Hancock on piano, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Hubbard is really brimming over with new ideas – as are the other players – and titles include "Lament for Booker", "Prophet Jennings", "Hub Tones", "For Spee's Sake", and "You're My Everything".
