Jimmy Cliff & OthersHarder They Come (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Island, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – maybe in part because it was a soundtrack, as was Superfly – but also because it has this global power that makes it a defining album of the genre! Jimmy Cliff is obviously the mainman here, but there's help from other key players in the growing reggae scene – and titles include Jimmy's classic "You Can Get It If You Really Want", in two versions – plus two takes on "The Harder They Come", "Many Rivers To Cross", and "Sitting In Limbo" – plus "Sweet & Dandy" and "Pressure Drop" by The Maytals, "007" by Desmond Dekker, "Johnny Too Bad" by The Slicers, "Draw Your Brakes" by Scotty, and "Rivers Of Babylon" by The Melodians. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lenny McBrowne & The Four SoulsEastern Lights ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A really compelling little album – the only one as a leader we've seen from Lenny McBrowne, a drummer who worked with Roland Kirk and some other left of center players in the 60s! The album's got a nice blend of modern and soul jazz themes – and was one of those excellent "Cannonball Adderley presents" albums that graced Riverside briefly in the early 60s. Like others in that series (Clifford Jordan, JFK Quintet), the album's got an undeniable energy that really sets it apart from other albums of the time. The group includes Don Sleet on trumpet, Daniel Jackson on tenor, Terry Trotter on piano, and Jimmy Bond on bass – and titles include "Saudi", "Chicago Preferred", "Eastern Lights", "Even Dozen", and "Tryin & Cryin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

✨✧ Gigi Gryce/Art FarmerBebop In Paris Vol 2 ... CD
Vogue/BMG (France), 1953. Used ... Out Of Stock
50s modern jazz at its best – served up in a set of rare 1953 recordings by a young Art Farmer and Gigi Gryce! The tracks on the set easily rival the greatness of both Farmer and Gryce's key sides for Prestige during the period – recorded with a freshness that still holds up strongly even 50 years later, and which represents some of the best larger group work of the post-swing generation! Quincy Jones had a hand in some of the work, as he, Gryce, and Farmer were all playing together with Lionel Hampton at the time – and the tunes on the set have a style that's as swingingly soulful as it is modern. 7 of the tracks were recorded under the name of the Gigi Gryce Orchestra, and 3 others under Art Farmer's New Jazz Stars – but the work has a very unified feel, with shared players that include Jimmy Cleveland, Anthony Ortega, Clifford Solomon, Henri Renaud, and Quincy Jones. Titles include "Serenade To Sonny", "Evening In Paris", "Purple Shades", "Paris The Beautiful", "La Rose Noire", "Anne Marie", and "Strike Up The Band". CD features a few alternate takes. CD
