✨✧ Carmen McRae with the Clarke Boland Big BandNovember Girl (Jazzman pressing) ... LP
Jazzman, 1970. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A rare gem from the Clarke Boland Big Band – and one of the group's few vocal sessions ever! The album's a really unique one – recorded in the UK in 1970, and featuring singer Carmen McCrae joining the group for a fresh and unusual batch of tracks – most of them originals written for the session! The CBBB is in fine fine form throughout – hard-swinging with an impossibly tight sound, and featuring solo work by Tony Coe, Sahib Shihab, and Billy Mitchell. But even more surprising is Carmen – really opening up on the record, thanks to the fresh, new material – and hitting dark moods that perfectly fit the November Girl title of the session! Titles include "Just Give Me Time", "A Handful Of Soul", "Dear Death", "My Kinda World", and "November Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Forty Seven Times Its Own WeightCumulo Nimbus ... CD
Fable/Jazzman (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
Funky and free-thinking fusion from the Texas scene of the mid 70s – a great indie album by a group who travelled in the same territory as the soul combo Starcrost! Although American, the work here has some great qualities that remind us of some of the best European fusion from the same time – a sense of soaring, stretching energy – and one that never resorts to too much jamming to carry across its message, and which juxtaposes heavier rhythms with some gentler tunes that really allow the horn parts some wonderful moments! Instrumentation include soprano sax, tenor, trumpet, electric and acoustic piano, and a fair bit of percussion too – all recorded with a great sense of warmth, almost in the mode of some of the best Fantasy Records 70s sessions! Titles include "Jig", "Halyards", "Cumulo Nimbus", "47 Tears", "March Of The Goober Woobers", and "Weedhopper" CD

Jef GilsonJef Gilson Archives – A Collection Of Previously Unreleased Recordings, Rehearsals, Demos & Alternate Takes ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $11.99
Amazing sounds from Jef Gilson – one of the coolest, hippest jazz musicians working on the European scene of the 60s and 70s! Gilson has his own label – Palm Records – and was noted for his keen sense of collaboration, and openness to new ideas – not just modern elements that were moving around the postwar scene, but also some crucial crossovers with other global styles as well – and his list of collaborators over the years included reedman Michel Portal, trumpeter Bernard Vitet, prog rocker Christian Vander, and exotic jazz musician Lloyd Miller. Gilson's music was often issued in small pressings over the years, or buried under the names of bigger stars in his collaborations – but this wonderful package finally shows the genius in his full light – by bringing forth a host of rare tracks from Gilson's own archives, carefully selected by the Jazzman Records team. There's a really wonderful array of sounds going on here – some straighter jazz grooves, some offbeat rhythms, some exotic instrumental passages, and some occasional forays into Latin or African modes – all instantly compelling, and with the sort of unique sounds that are bound to have you digging for some of Gilson's commercially released music. Titles include "Choro In Blue", "Chant Inca", "Lamento", "Three Four One", "Anamorphose", "Java", "Agnus Dei", "Java Pour Raspail", and "La Cigale Et La Fourmi". CD

A limited single with two great spiritual tracks from saxophonist Muriel Grossmann – both issued here in special edits! "Golden Rule" is the title track from Grossmann's great album of the same name – and features Muriel blowing soprano sax in this long-flowing way that spins out magnificently over guitar, bass, and drums! And "Okan Ti Aye" is a tenor track, recorded live and featured here for the first time ever – with an even more powerful vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Don Rendell/Ian Carr QuintetChange Is (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Jazzman (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Change is certainly in the air for the famous group of tenorist Don Rendell and trumpeter Ian Carr – partly because this final set has some slight shifts in personnel, and partly because a few elements point the way towards new directions that Carr would take in the 70s! The core energy of the group is still beautifully intact – and most tunes still feature strong piano work from Michael Garrick, alongside the fantastic drums of Trevor Tompkins and bass of Dave Green – but there's also a point when Jeff Clyne comes in for a second bass, Guy Warren adds some percussion, and Stan Robinson brings in both added tenor and clarinet! None of the music is as electric as Carr's later Nucleus group, but you can definitely hear the door opening for new ideas – while the duo still continue that fantastic blend of modern moments and soulful swing that mark their seminal late 60s albums in the Lansdowne Series. Titles include "Elastic Dream", "Boy Dog & Carrot", "One Green Eye", "Cold Mountain", and "Black Hair". LP, Vinyl record album

Don Rendell/Ian Carr QuintetDusk Fire (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Jazzman (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
A great group gets even better – as the legendary pairing of tenorist Don Rendell and trumpeter Ian Carr is joined by pianist Michael Garrick – who was really helping to shape the sound of British jazz at the time! The album's only the second from the Rendell/Carr Quintet, but it's already moving strongly forward – with this sense of composition and focus that's really amazing – served up in original tunes by all three creative forces in the lead – often with this great balance between soulful swing and modern ideas that makes the whole thing a dream all the way through! Don plays tenor, soprano sax, flute, and clarinet; Carr plays trumpet and flugelhorn; Garrick is on piano, Dave Green is on bass, and Trevor Tomkin is on drums – on titles that include "Prayer", "Dusk Fire", "Hot Rod", "Spooks", "Jubal", and "Tan Samfu".

Don Rendell/Ian Carr QuintetShades Of Blue (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Jazzman (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The debut of a legendary British jazz group – one who not only gave that nation's scene a fresh voice in music, but who also really set the tone for many other acts to come! After a stretch when the London scene was doing a great job of matching American efforts in bop and swing, players like Don Rendell and Ian Carr found a way to really carve out some bold space of their own – here, by matching their own strong sense of writing and arranging, always filled with beautiful tone and color, with some of the more modern phrasing and styles that were just creeping up around town. The set's not nearly as experimental as the work of Joe Harriott, but has all the hallmarks of that generation's openness to new ways of expression – often given a surprisingly soulful swing, and captured perfectly as one of the early entries in the famous Lansdowne Series recordings. The rest of the group is equally great – and in addition to Rendell on tenor and soprano sax, and Carr on trumpet and flugelhorn – the combo includes Colin Purbrook on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Trevor Tompkin on drums. Titles include "Garrison 64", "Blue Mosque", "Just Blue", "Latin Blue", "Sailin", and "Big City Strut". LP, Vinyl record album

Soren Skov OrbitOrbit Bound/NV ... 7-inch
Jazzman (UK), 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99
Two beautiful tracks from reedman Soren Lyhne Skov – working here with a very cool group in a very moody style! "Orbit Bound" has kind of a slow, modal approach – echoey piano leading into the tune, while Soren blows soprano sax next to a bass clarinet – with these snakey lines that are really wonderful! The bassline is even stronger on "NV" – which glows with even more modal energy – and which also has Skov sounding even bolder and more wonderful on tenor! 7-inch, Vinyl record

StarcrostStarcrost ... CD
Fable/Jazzman (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
An incredible bit of funky fusion from the Texas scene of the 70s – a record that's unlike anything else we've ever heard from the Lone Star state, and which still sounds plenty fresh all these many years later! Starcrost have a sound that mixes jazzy riffing with great female lead vocals – sung in a style that's a bit soulful, but which also has a fair bit of jazz in the mix too – a blend that was much more common for some of the Bay Area groups of the 70s, particularly some of those recording for Fantasy Records. The vibe here is a bit like Pleasure at times – fusion focused into a funkily grooving mode – and the playing is superb throughout – never cliched, never too over the top, and never filled with too-jamming styles that could slow down the groove! There's a great balance between breeziness and all-out grooving that keeps the whole album fresh throughout – a quality that was hardly ever done this well on albums by bigger groups of the period. Titles include "Flow", "Quicksand", "Catharsis", "False Paradise", "Getting Going", "Funky Little Home", and "Da Ba O" – plus the unreleased tracks "I've Got A Plan" and "Run". CD

Fable/Jazzman (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A legendary album from the Texas scene of the 70s – exactly the kind of set that helps the city of Austin live up to its massive reputation for music! The group's got a wonderful blend of jazz, soul, and funk – a unique blend that reminds us of our favorite funky Fantasy Records sides from the Bay Area scene, but which is even more special here as a standout set from Austin. Like some of the best ensemble funk sets of the 70s, the groove's choppy one minute, jazzy the next – really drawing from the many spirits that inhabit the 8-piece lineup, in ways that really let everyone's talents sparkle. Drums are nice and tight, and the keyboard and saxophone work is wonderful too – and titles include "Ghetto Tool", "Groove Awhile", "Keep Your Eyes On The Merchandise", "Funk N Roll", "Frozen Tundra Lady", and "Radiator".

There's a strongly descending piano line in "Almpoian Etude" – one that gives the whole tune a moody, modal vibe before leader Sokratis Votskos really stretches out on soprano sax – taking the whole thing into nicely spiritual territory! "Sevenates" is a bit more upbeat, and has a style that mixes older Greek rhythms with a more contemporary jazz approach – one that has the soprano leaping nicely alongside the piano, bass, and drums! 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousLas Vegas Grind Vol 7 ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Jazzman Records takes over the legendary Las Vegas Grind series – and does a fantastic job of coming up with the kind of really raunchy tracks that always made the collections so great! When this series first came out, it really blew our mind – because although we knew plenty of older tracks from the glory days of the indie 7" single, we'd never heard work this raw or gritty – tunes that are often equal parts rock and R&B, often with a hard-vamping style that must have been perfect for a stripper to go into her grind! Not that this music is anything like older "strip" records, though – as we're sure that all the tracks here were cut by guys who were hoping to top the charts with the next big thing – but whose heavy sound and gritty groove forever damned their songs to the world of rare record collectors. Fortunately, Jazzman are on the case, and have done a fantastic job of picking just the right tracks to continue the Las Vegas Grind legacy – titles that include "I'd Rather Swish Than Fight" by B Bubbha, "Gay Poppa's Cha Cha" by Gay Poppa, "She Said" by Frank Scott, "Blo Jangs" by The Savoys, "El Pato" by Los Virreyes, "Fat Man" by Louie & The Fat Men, "The Beard" by The Abstracts, "Sneaky Pete" by UBs Group, "Gemini Rock" by The Original Spacemen, "Sneakin Away" by The Y-Dells, "Shirley" by Little Louie & The Finger Cymbals, and "Braggin" by Bob Moore & The Temps.

VariousNew Life Vol 2 – Independent & Regional Jazz In Great Britain 1968 to 1988 ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $14.99
A really tremendous collection of overlooked jazz from the UK scene – most of it recorded in the late 60s and 70s, at a time when the nation was really exploding with new ideas – so much so, the bigger labels weren't able to keep pace with recording during the period! Instead, it was left to the smaller indies and imprints to pick up the slack – which they did wonderfully as a new explosion of labels showed up at the start of the 70s – companies who recorded some of the gems on this set, as a much-needed document of the fresh sounds that were being created all over the country. Most folks associate this period with either the free improv or jazz rock records that were circulated more widely – but this set uncovers a huge amount of jazz that's often modal or spiritual, and which represents artists who are never going too far out – even while they're breaking all the molds of the hardbop generation. This second volume in the series is even better than the first – and is definitely one of those genre-defining compilations that you'll be returning to often in years to come. Titles include "Pharoah Sanders" by Billy Jenkins, "Pipe Of Peace" by Frank Evans, "Dunkelfunk" by Inner Ear, "Sunspots" by RedBrass, "Bikini Atoll" by Big Baffle, "Unicorn" by Don Rendell Five, "Come Listen To Me" by Gerry McClelland, "A North Country Lass Tells Her Sorrows" by Robert Shaw & The Dick Hawdon Quintet, "Bending Over Backwards" by Music Explosion, "Put The Wood On The Fire" by Hotpoints, and "Senufo Chant" by Pat Crumly Sextet.

Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $19.99
A second great serving of all-female funk – and a collection that's arguably better than the now-legendary first volume in the series! Ian Wright's definitely outdone himself here – and the selection of work here is really really wonderful – with hardly any familiar names at all, save for a few smaller soul stars who are represented by some pretty obscure tunes! The vibe is hard and gritty throughout – but also plenty soulful too – and Ian doesn't sacrifice quality of the tune in pursuit of a rare piece of wax, so that the work is all top-shelf all the way through – a collection of female soul and funk artists who easily rival the biggest names from their generations! As usual with Jazzman, the whole thing's done with notes that are as careful as the track selection – and the CD features a total of 20 tracks that include "The Dance Man" by Keisa Brown, "Watch The Dog That Bring The Bone" by Sandy Gaye, "The Queen" by Big Ella, "Baby You're A Jive Cat" by Sheila Wilkerson, "Heartbreak Hotel" by Barbara Trent, "What I Did In The Street" by Barbara King, "Follow The Wind" by Coletta Woodson, "Sweet Sweet Baby" by Dolly Gilmore, "Take Me Baby" by Althea Spencer, "It's Not Too Late" by Cheryl Johnson, "If You Want Your Man" by Cheryl Dorsey, "I Don't Want Your Love" by Barbara Howards, "Muddy Waters" by The Fabulettes, and "Love Came Into My Life" by Florence Trapp. CD

Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 24.99
The sound of spiritual jazz from the European underground of the 60s and 70s – a really rich music-making scene that's every bit as impressive as the one going on in the US – as you'll hear from this amazing set of tracks! As with the first volume in the series, the collection is filled with modal jazz and other groovers – mostly long tracks that really stretch out, yet still always have a tight sense of rhythm – one that makes the music completely infectious right from the start! It might be tempting to think of European jazz of this sort as kind of a copy of a US mode – but instead, it really happened simultaneously – as younger players were really pushing past the styles of previous years – and drawing not only on American jazz for inspiration, but also a range of different post-colonial modes particular to the European scene – bits of African, Latin, Brazilian, and other styles that really helped influence their approach. And in a way, it might even be said that the Europeans of the 60s had a much looser approach to rhythm, one that really allowed for experiments like these – and which, in turn, went back to have an influence on the American side as well. Titles include "Temple Dancer" by Michael Garrick, "Communion" by Erich Kleinschuster, "Archangelo" by Raphael, "Africa Freakout" by Barney Wilen, "Corrida" by Nicolai Gromin, "Duke & Trane" by Hiekki Sarmanto, "Nana Imboro" by Wroblewski Jazz Quintet, "Las Morillas De Jaen" by Pedro Iturralde, "Bosnia Calling" by Dusko Goykovich, and "Candy Clouds (part 2)" by Hans Dulfer & Ritmo Natural.

Blue Note/Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A great look at a sometimes-forgotten side of the legendary Blue Note Records label – the company's strong wave of spiritual jazz material recorded during the 60s and early 70s – extremely fine music that's often eclipsed next to the company's better-known hardbop and funky jazz! As the 60s moved on, Blue Note became an even more open-minded label than before – and not only gave some of its key players the chance to stretch out and really spread their wings – but also brought some younger talents into the mix, who really expanded the vision of the Blue Note sound. Some of the tracks here are from the middle of the decade – and reflect more of the growing interest in modal jazz spurred on by Coltrane, Miles Davis, and others – while some of the later tracks are surprisingly righteous, sometimes political moments from players who would have sounded very different just a few years before. The package is done with the same amazing care and fantastic set list as previous Spiritual Jazz collections from Jazzman – and titles include "Verse" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, "At This Point In Time" by Elvin Jones, "The Rain" by Eddie Gale, "Poinsettia" by Andrew Hill, "Searchin The Trane" by Bobby Hutcherson, "The Phantom" by Duke Pearson, "Assunta" by Freddie Hubbard, "El Barrio" by Joe Henderson, "Plight" by Jackie McLean, "Gichi" by Booker Ervin, "Igbesi Aiye" by Solomon Ilori, "Blue Spirits" by Freddie Hubbard, "Cristo Redentor" by Duke Pearson, "The Morning After" by Hank Mobley, "Indian Song" by Wayne Shorter, and "Malaguena" by Pete LaRoca.

The package is done with the same amazing care and fantastic set list as previous Spiritual Jazz collections from Jazzman – and titles on this second volume include "El Barrio" by Joe Henderson, "Plight" by Jackie McLean, "Gichi" by Booker Ervin, "Igbesi Aiye" by Solomon Ilori, "Blue Spirits" by Freddie Hubbard, "Cristo Redentor" by Duke Pearson, "The Morning After" by Hank Mobley, "Indian Song" by Wayne Shorter, and "Malaguena" by Pete LaRoca.

Jazzman (UK), 2019. New Copy (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic track from the great Nat Birchall – a number that bounds right out of the gate with a modal rhythm that's completely wonderful – then really takes on a strong, soulful shape when Nat soars out on a soprano saxophone solo! "Seeking" has a different groove – drums that are romping and rhythmic – almost an old school soul jazz number, save for all the sharper edges that Birchall brings to his tenor solo! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Don Rendell/Ian Carr QuintetDon Rendell/Ian Carr Live (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Jazzman (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of British jazz from the end of the 60s – a set that doesn't need to answer at all to any of the jazz styles coming from America at the time – as it's sound and vision is so bold, so unique, it's a completely massive statement on its own! The set may well represent the pinnacle of this creative combo – as pianist Michael Garrick seems to be taking an even stronger role than before, and certainly gets some great space for expression on the longer live tracks within – shading things with that amazing sense of tone and timing that made his own albums of the 60s so important to British jazz, but maybe even more incredible here in the company of Carr's trumpet and flugelhorn, and Rendell's work on tenor, soprano sax, clarinet, and flute. As before, the bass of Dave Green and drums of Trevor Tompkins are a key element of the music – the amazing energy at the core – on titles that include "Pavanne", "Nimjam", "Voices", "You've Said It", "Vignette", and "On Track".

✨✧ Don Rendell/Ian Carr QuintetPhase III (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Jazzman (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third legendary album from the Don Rendell/Ian Carr Quintet – and a set that really has the combo stretching out in the new kind of freedoms offered by the Landsowne series at the time! The group had already made fantastic waves on their previous two albums – but here, the songs are longer, the ideas more expansive, and the overall sound is more intense – as the tenor, soprano sax, and flute of Rendell is balanced with both trumpet and flugelhorn from Carr – then driven even more strongly than before by the piano of Michael Garrick, who's really at his creative peak at this point! The rest of the group features very strong work from Dave Green on bass and Trevor Tomkin on drums – cementing a rock-solid unit – and titles include "Les Nieges D'Antan", "Black Marigolds", "Bath Sheba", and "Crazy Jane".

✨✧ Greg Foat GroupDark Is The Sun ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant and rare new project on the Jazzman label – the debut LP from keyboards, synths and harpsichord adventurer Greg Foat and his cosmos-searching Group – amazing stuff that's truly on par with the deep, lost rarities that Jazzman so lovingly mines for and reissues! The hints of the greatness to come that so piqued our interest on the preceding 10-inch EP are delivered up in full, and actually surpasses our expectations. There's just such stylistic and instrumental depth going on here, and it's delivered in accessibly groovy way! The album was recorded in Sweden with instrumentation including loads of great congas, drums and other percussion, a female choir brings lovely wordless vocals, plus guitars, flugelhorn, trombone and trumpet. It's evocative of trippy-jazzy soundtracks and sound library material, but like other contemporary acts that Jazzman as championed – most notably, the Natural Yogurt Band – it's got a unique vibe all it's own. Here's hoping for a career's worth of cool music from Mr. Foat! Includes "Time Piece 1", "Dark Is The Sun" (Parts 1-4), "Hello Old Friend", "Yeah You Are", "Uncle Bessie", "Bright Is The Sun" and "Time Piece 2 (Epilogue)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Infinite Spirit MusicLive Without Fear ... CD
Ancient Afrika/Jazzman (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully spiritual work from this obscure Chicago group from the late 70s – an AACM ensemble, and quite possibly one of the most soulful we've ever heard! There's a really spare, earthy approach to the work here – one that uses percussion, piano, and saxes from Light Henry Huff – plus beautiful male and female vocals, in a range of spare tunes that build up from the bottom, and flow out with joy and life. The album's not nearly as "out" as you'd expect, given its AACM roots – and has a feeling that's much more in the spirit of groups like Oneness Of Juju, The Pyramids, or Descendents Of Mike & Phoebe – mixing righteous solo passages with a well-conceived approach to the music that holds together wonderfully throughout. Kahil El Zabar is in the group on congas and vocals, and titles include "Soul Flower", "Rasta", "Live Without Fear", "Bright Tune", "Father Spirit Mother Love", and "Children's Song". CD

✨✧ Lloyd MillerLifetime In Oriental Jazz (limited edition) ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
They definitely got the title right on this one – as jazz musician Lloyd Miller spent his lifetime recording in more unusual, exotic variations of his genre – often at a level that's kept him in relatively obscure territory over the decades! Yet its that obscurity that also really illustrates Lloyd's strong commitment to making music that pushes boundaries and opens doors – with a career that includes a fair bit of young years on the Mid-East and European scenes, where Miller was able to pick up countless influences from other cultures, and weave them into his own music as well. Miller spent most of his time in America in relative obscurity, but issued a string of recordings on his own label over the decades – the best of which are pulled together here in a fantastic overview of his music! There's plenty of modal and spiritual jazz elements in the mix – and a great blend of eastern and western instrumentation as well – on tracks that include many under Miller's name, plus more with the Press Keys Quartet and Jef Gilson Septet. LP features 9 tracks in all – including "Gole-E Gandom (Wheat Flowers)", "Gozel Guzler (Amber Eyes)", "Bizz-Aire", "Indo-European Improvisations", "Hue Wail", "Chant Inca", and "Le Grand Bidou".

✨✧ Nat BirchallCosmic Language ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The language of saxophonist Nat Birchall has always been pretty cosmic – but this time around, he seems to be reaching out even more – working on these long-spun tracks with a really unique quartet! The group features sublime work on harmonium from Adam Fairhall – an instrument that we don't normally associate with jazz, but which works perfectly in Birchall's slow-building spiritual style – really shading in the tunes with otherworldly sounds which are then cut through by Nat's searing, soulful work on tenor! The album moves at a meditative pace, but there's also plenty going on, too – and the tracks draw plenty of energy from the work of Michael Bardon on bass and Andy Hay on drums and percussion. We've been following Nat on his musical journey for over a decade, and he's never let us down – and this time around he takes us to even farther reaches – on titles that include "Dervish", "A Prayer For", "Man From Varanasi", and "Humility".

CountsFunk Pump ... LP
Aware, 1975. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A funky funky classic from The Counts – and an album that has the group tightening up their sound from the Westbound years, but still keeping the groove plenty nice! There's a tight, bad-walking feel to most of the cuts on the set – one that almost comes across with a blacksploitation groove – especially as the album's basslines are all laid out in a hard-stepping groove, and topped off by plenty of wicked guitar work. Most cuts have vocals, and the lyrics have a Fatback-like love of the catchy chorus and funk-heavy theme. The album's worth it alone for the excellent cut "Tecalli" – a stretched out mellow instrumental with some great Kool & The Gang-esque floating trumpet over the top – but the whole thing's great, and other tracks include "At The Fair", "Dedicated Man", "Jazzman", "Magic Ride", "Short Cut", and "Flies Over Watermelon".

The set featuers duets with Daniel Bingert – who we know from recent work on bass, but who, along with Jonas, seems to handle drums, keyboards, guitar, and other instruments too – all in a set of short instrumental tracks that are partly jazz, and partly older-school instrumental modes – echoing surf, soundtrack, R&B, and other styles as the short tracks step across the space of the EP! Titles include "Fathers In The Night", "Oh Father It's A Hard World", "Faeders", and "Bebopappa". 7-inch, Vinyl record

James MoodyWail Moody Wail Vol 3 (aka Wail Moody Wail) – Prestige Historical Series ... LP
Prestige, 1955. Sealed ... $4.99
Wail Moody, indeed – a killer set from the 50s that really shows the strong development of James Moody after the initial bebop years – already growing into one of the most forward-thinking jazzman of his generation! The group here is a bit larger than before – a septet, put together with both a mix of modern arrangements and some of the more freewheeling styles of a bop jam session – a great testament to Moody's growing ability as a leader. The lineup is a bit unusual, but in a good way – with work from Pee Wee Moore on baritone, Dave Burns on trumpet, Jimmy Boyd on piano, and William Shepherd on trombone – plus John Latham on bass and Clarence Johnson on drums – and the groove is open – informed by bop, but with a lot of early soul jazz in the mix, too – especially in the ensemble phrasing. Side one features the side-long jammer "Wail Moody Wail" – and other titles include "The Golden Touch", "The Donkey Serenade", and "Moody's Blue Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD ... $59.99
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one features mindblowing guitars from John Renbourn and Bert Jansch – a duo who would already be fantastic enough on their own, but who really open up in the sound of the group – way past their own wonderful albums of just a few years before! Part of the strength of Pentangle likes in the vocals of Jaqui McShee – a singer who's clearly got an ear for jazz, and brings in a strong sense of improvisation and extrapolation – as do both guitarists in the music. The bass is also fantastic – handled by Danny Thompson, who also seems to be a jazzman at heart – given the way he bends and shades things, at a level that no folk group ever would do. Percussionist Terry Cox is the remaining member of the group – nicely understated, and working with Thompson in this way that makes for these cool gentle grooves that Renbourn or Jansch never would have hit on their own. Every record here is a gem – and the set not only includes all six albums (one of which is a double) in these tiny LP-styled sleeves, it also features an insane number of bonus tracks too – and a huge book on the group and their music. 115 tracks in all – including 54 bonus tracks, a number of which are previously unreleased!

Players AssociationPlayers Association/Turn The Music Up! ... CD
Vanguard/Ace (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of gems from The Players Association – back to back on a single CD! First up is the fantastic first album from The Players Association – a group who may well have gotten their name for the great jazzy musicians in their lineup! Players Association are best known for their disco grooves, but they've got a core sense of instrumentation that's really a cut above – with strong leadership from jazzman Chris Hills – who plays drums, guitar, and keyboards – and other players who include Joe Farrell on tenor and flute, Bob Mover on alto and soprano, Jon Faddis on trumpet, and Mike Mandell on keyboards! Ray Mantilla and Buddy Williams add in some great percussion to the mix – which furthers the spontaneous, jazzy vibe of some of the tunes – and titles includes the funky cut "I Like It", which has a nice break in the beginning, plus the tracks "Let's Groove", "Hustlin", "Moon In Pisces", and a sweet cover of "For The Love Of You". Turn The Music Up is wonderful work from The Players Association – a group who were equal parts jazz funk and equal parts 70s club – with a vibe that's maybe like The Blackbyrds or other Fantasy Records acts at their best! The mighty Chris Hills is at the helm – and the record is overflowing with top-shelf talent from the jazz side of the spectrum – work by Bob Berg on tenor, Tom Harrell on trumpet, and Bob Mover on alto – all with room to solo, and really helping bring a musical maturity to the record that other disco records never seem to have! Titles include "Everybody Dance", "Ride The Groove", "The Closer I Get To You", and "I Wish". CD

John RenbournUnpentangled – The Sixties Albums (There You Go/John Renbourn/Bert & John/Another Monday/Watch The Stars/Sir John A Lot Of/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Transatlantic/Cherry Tree (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 6CD ... $32.99
A treasure trove of greatness from British folk rock legend John Renbourn – all of his late 60s solo work, done before moving on to greater fame in Pentangle! First up is There You Go – a rare one from singer Dorris Henderson and future Pentangle founder John Rensbourn! Florida born, LA raised singer Dorris Henderson moved to London in 1965 and was soon singing London's folk clubs, where she met Rensbourn. A solid mix of traditionals and then contemporary folk songs – stripped down and honest takes on "Saly Free And Easy", "Cotton Eyed Joe", "Mr Tamborine Man", "Going To Memphis", Something Lonesome", "Mist On The Mountain" and more. This edition includes bonus tracks from a rare 45 – "Hangman" and "Leaves That Are Green". Next is the self-titled John Renbourn from 1965 – a set that would not only establish John's legacy for years to come, but also have a very strong impact upon the role of the guitar on the British scene too! The album's definitely in a mode that owes something to an American folk legacy – but it also really breaks from the past with unusual phrasings and colorings in Renbourn's guitar – certainly with an ear towards ancient English modes, but also at once very fresh and contemporary – a strong precursor to the waves of new acoustic talents that would flow from the UK a few years later, but maybe even more revolutionary – given that John's mostly just working here with his guitar and voice. Bert Jansch adds guitar to a few tracks – and titles include "Song", "Down On The Barge", "Plainsong", "Judy", "Beth's Blues", "Blue Bones", "Train Tune", "Winter Is Gone", and "Noah & Rabbit". Bert & John is a hell of a collaboration between British legends Bert Jansch and John Renbourn – both working here together to completely redefine the sound of their music for the generation to come! This one album may well hold all the sense of subtle power and possibility that was about to flower in the Brit movement often known as "acid folk" – that reworking of older aesthetics with modern conceptions, and doing so mostly with their work on acoustic guitar – quite a feat, given the stripped-down instrumentation of the set! Bert sings a bit – in that incredible style of his – but the real attraction here is the guitar interplay, which is always fresh, never hokey, neither familiar American folk nor forced singer-songwriter backup material. Titles include a wonderful reworking of Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" – plus "Red's Favourite", "Orlando", "Soho", "Piano Tune", "East Wind", "After The Dance", and "The Time Has Come". Another Monday is maybe the most obscure album in the collection – a set that is mostly instrumental, with some completely fantastic work by Renbourn on guitar – but which also features a bit of guest vocals from singer Jacqui McShee – whose warmer presence next to John really makes for a nice pairing. The album's as powerful as it is subtle, really beautiful in its sense of variety – with titles that include "Buffalo", "One For William", "Lost Lover Blues", "Another Monday", "Day At The Seaside", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", and "Waltz". Watch The Stars is another great collaboration with Dorris Henderson – an American singer, but one who moved to London in the 60s – where she cut this rare gem with guitarist John Renbourn! The album's got a righteous vibe that's hipper than the usual folk set – with some traditional tunes and some contemporary material – recorded with that amazing phrasing that made Renbourn's guitar so distinct right from the start, with lots of those jazzy currents we love so much – and which really fit the creative vocal approach of Henderson! Dorris also plays some autoharp, and there's a bit of bass in the backings – although overall the main focus here is on Renbourn's guitar and Henderson's vocals. Titles include "Come Up Horsey", "God Bless The Child", "Watch The Stars", "30 Days In Jail", "Mosaic Patterns", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", and "There's Anger In This Land". Sir John A Lot Of is perhaps one of the best-known albums from British guitar legend John Renbourn – as it was issued widely in the US, and kept in print for a surprisingly long time over the years! The approach here is slightly different than Renbourn's previous records – a bit in the image presented by the cover, although with maybe not as slavish a sound – as John just uses the whole thing to go a bit more ancient than before, in ways that echo the time travel that the whole British folk scene was taking as the 70s approached. The tunes are done in ways that are really beautiful – still lots of the incredible guitar work that made Renbourn such a standout on the scene – plus flute from jazzman Ray Warleigh, who's very different here than usual – and spare use of finger cymbals, African drums, and glockenspiel by Terry Cox. Titles include "Morgana", "Transfusion", "The Trees They Do Grow High", "Sweet Potato", "Seven Up", and "White Fishes". 6CD box features all records in original artwork sleeves, with a booklet of notes – and bonus tracks that include "Message To Pretty", "The Waggoner's Lad", "Lucky Thirteen", "Blues Run The Game", "The Wildest Pig In Captivity (alt)", "Can't Keep From Crying", "Transfusion (alt)", and "The Leaves Are Green".

Great work from Herlin Riley – a drummer with plenty of New Orleans in his roots, but also a jazzman who never tries to hit you over the head with that legacy either! There's definitely a complexity in the rhythms that reflects Herlin's background – but the modes of expression are more contemporary, and more universal – as the songs feature some great criss-crossing between the trumpet of Bruce Harris and alto of Godwin Louis – the latter of whom might well be reason enough to check out the album! The horn lines are bold and soulful – and Riley gets great support from pianist Emmet Cohen and bassist Russell Hall – on titles that include "Perpetual Optimism", "Rush Hour", "Be There When I Get There", "Twelve's It", "Wings & Roots", and "Borders Without Lines".

✨✧ Bert JanschBirthday Blues ... LP
Reprise/Superior Viaduct, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums ever from UK genius Bert Jansch – cut as a solo set at a time when his fame was rising with the group Pentangle, and somewhat overlooked at the time! Yet all these many years later, we'd rank this one right up alongside important records of the period by Nick Drake – even though Jansch has a style that's completely his own – a bit ancient at times, somewhat bluesy on his guitar inflections, and set to this amazing voice that makes even the simplest lyric come across with a spooky sort of edge. Instrumentation is relatively spare – mostly Bert on guitar, joined by occasional players who include jazzman Ray Warleigh on alto and flute, and Duffy Power on harmonica – shaded in by producer Shel Talmy in ways that remind us of the lighter folksy numbers on the Donovan productions by Mickie Most. Titles include "The Bright New Year", "Tree Song", "Poison", "Wishing Well", "Blues", "I Am Lonely", and "Come Sing Me A Happy Song To Prove We Can All Get Along The Lumpy Bumpy Long & Dusty Road".
