✨✧ John PattonAccent On The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the last John Patton albums for Blue Note, and one of the best! A young James "Blood" Ulmer's on guitar, and Marvin Cabell (who we only know from Patton LPs) is on tenor and flute. The sound is deep and soulful, and despite the "accent on the blues" of the title, the feel's more Blue Note soul than it actually is bluesy. Ulmer's guitar is great, with this raspy edge that gives a nice depth to the album – and titles include reat versions of Harold Mabern's "Rakin' & Scrapin" and Eddie Harris' "Freedom Jazz Dance", plus some excellent originals by Cabell like "Captain Nasty" and "Village Lee". Plus, this CD reissue also features 4 other tracks, 3 of which are unreleased titles like "Sweet Pea", "2 J", and "Buddy Boy". CD
(Part of the Blue Note 80 – Soul Jazz Works series!)

✨✧ John PattonGot A Good Thing Goin' ... CD
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic by Big John Patton! The master organ player is joined by Grant Green on guitar, and the much-overlooked drummer Hugh Walker – a fantastic player on the kit, little known, but who played with this incredible "skipping" groove – one that sounds that reminds us a lot of some of the work that Joe Dukes did with Jack McDuff in the 60s! There's no bass on the set at all – and Walker's drums combine with added conga from Richard Landrum – giving the songs an extra roll, and a modal approach that expands Patton's sound past his usual gutbuckety soul jazz! Includes loads of great tracks – especially the jazz dance classic "The Yodel", as well as on Sam Cooke's "The Shake", Duke Pearson's "Amanda", and the great "Soul Woman". CD

Lou DonaldsonMusty Rusty/At His Best ... CD
Cadet/Jazz Beat (Spain), 1965. Used ... $24.99
Two Cadet Records cookers from Lou Donaldson – back to back on a single CD! Musty Rusty is a great mid 60s session by Lou Donaldson – a bridge between his earlier Blue Note recordings and his styles of the mid and late 60s – featuring an electric group with Billy Gardner on organ, Grant Green on guitar, Ben Dixon on drums, and Bill Hardman on trumpet. The tracks have the same tight group feel as the work that Lou recorded for Blue Note with Big John Patton on Hammond and Grant Green on guitar – and titles include "The Space Walk", "Hipty Hop", "Musty Rusty", "Midnight Sun", and "Ha' Mercy". At His Best is somewhat misleadingly titled – because it isn't a "best of", but a straight album from Lou's days at Cadet, and one of his best, we might add! The record features Lou's tight group with Billy Gardner on organ, grooving away in a modal soulful mode that should have made him a lot more famous. Bill Hardman is on trumpet, Grady Tate is on drums, and Calvin Newborn rounds out the group on guitar. Titles include "Greasy Papa", "Wig Blues", "Blues #3", and "Win, Lose, or Draw" – and Lou's in better form than on most of his other Cadet LPs! CD

Lou DonaldsonNatural Soul (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. New Copy ... $11.99
A pivotal record from Lou Donaldson – one that has him forging out some of his first funky soul jazz sounds, moving from his bop roots, and working with a hip young group that includes Grant Green and John Patton, both of whom he discovered and brought to Blue Note (thanks Lou!) The tracks have a tight jaunty feel – very much like those on Patton's mid 60s sides for Blue Note, with lots of room for each player to solo intently – but still a strong focus on the overall groove of the ensemble. Cover's very nice – and tracks include "Funky Mama", "Spaceman Twist", and "Nice n Greasy". CD features one bonus track too – "People Will Say We're In Love". CD

Harold VickDon't Look Back (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
Maybe the most righteous album ever from reedman Harold Vick – a crowning achievement of all his soulful years in jazz, cut as one of the key 70s releases on Strata East! Vick is fantastic here – light years ahead of his work as the funky tenorist on 60s albums by John Patton and Jack McDuff in the 60s, even as great as that material was – and emerging here as an incredibly sensitive soul jazz player, capable of turning out some incredibly sophisticated and emotional compositions – which are then graced by these really spiritual solos! Harold wrote and produced the whole album – really controlling his musical vision – and other players include "Virgil Jones on trumpet, George Davis on flute, Joe Bonner on Fender Rhodes and piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – a lineup that sounds even greater on the record than it does on paper. Titles include "Don't Look Back", "Melody For Bu", "Stop & Cop", and "Senor Zamora". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Robert Walter's 20th CongressMoney Shot ... CD
Fog City, 2000. Used ... $7.99
A killer album of soul jazz from Robert Walter – most famously known as the keyboardist with the Greyboy All Stars, but a killer player in his own right, and the leader of the soon-to-be famous 20th Congress! The group features some killer drumming by Stanton Moore of Galactic – and the combination of his funky drums, Walter's spacey keyboards, and horn work by other members of the group makes the album a non-stop funky jazz gem, with the same sort of hard-jamming excitement you'd find in the band's live shows. Titles include "Shemp Time", "White Russ", "Rack & Pinion", "Instant Lawn", and a version of John Patton's classic "The Yodel". CD

✨✧ Yaya3Yaya3 ... CD
Loma, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great album from the Yaya trio of Joshua Redman, Sam Yahel, and Brian Blade. Yahel plays Hammond organ on the set, and the format here is kind of like the late late Big John Patton and Larry Young albums for Blue Note – freer, more open grooves than the usual organ/tenor session, kind of an elliptical swing that's still very rooted in the soul jazz organ tradition, yet which also has a post-Coltrane sense of exploration. The setting is wonderful for Redman, who carves out some great solos on tenor and soprano, but the real star of the set is Yahel, whose organ work is sublime – with a tone and a style that we haven't heard executed this well in years! A real delight – the rare kind of new album that will please fans of classic Hammond grooves, yet also push the instrument to new heights of expression. Titles include "Hometown", "Slow Orbit", "Switchblade", "The Scribe", "One More Once", and "The Spirit Lives On". CD

✨✧ VariousLost Sessions (previously unissued material by Blue Note artists) ... CD
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A treasure for all jazz fans worldwide! As is known to many, the great Blue Note label often recorded more material than it could issue on a regular basis – and some of the label's best bits often got lost in the cracks, and never saw the light of day! Over the past 30 years, many of these lost albums have come out on their own – but there's still been a lot of great single tracks that have never been issued before. This CD corrects that trend, by bringing together a sumptious batch of single titles from groups that are hardly (or never) represented in Blue Note's regular line of releases. You'll get Charlie Rouse leading a quintet on the track "One For Five"; Tadd Dameron heading up a large group on "Bevan Beeps", "The Elder Speaks", and "Aloof Spoof"; Sonny Stitt wailing with Dexter Gordon on "Lady Be Good"; Fred Jackson playing tenor with John Patton and Grant Green on "Cowbell Boogie"; Ike Quebec blowing with The Three Sounds on "Blues On Trial", and Herbie Hancock leading a very hip 2-guitar group on the track "Don't Even Go There". Like finding a time machine, this CD will introduce you to a world of jazz history you never even imagined! CD

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonGood Gracious! ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A cool cooker from the great Lou Donaldson – and a record that's ever bit as tasty as its cover! Lou's really hitting his soul jazz stride here – stepping off his 50s bop years, and moving into a more gutbuckety groove that's delivered with wonderful accompaniment from a quartet that features Grant Green on guitar, John Patton on Hammond, and Ben Dixon on drums! The style is loose and open – and tracks are long, with tight solos, especially from Patton and Green, always a winning combination – really stepping out here with an early raw fury! Titles include "Caracas", "Bad John", "Holy Ghost", and "Good Gracious!". Nice cover, too, with a photo of Lou checking out a sexy model, while speaking the title! CD

✨✧ Grant GreenAm I Blue (RVG Remaster) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Grant Green's mellowest albums – a haunting set of intimate ballads and blues, played with a quintet that includes John Patton on organ, Joe Henderson on tenor, and Johnny Coles on trumpet. Henderson and Coles give the album a very different feel than the usual Grant Green soul bop session – and Green proves himself to be a sensitive soloist more than capable of opening up new moods and colors of old standards like "For All We Know", "Am I Blue", and "I Wanna Be Loved".

Cuzone, 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
A monster – a great set of funky organ tracks, dedicated to John Patton, and filled with all the spirit of his classic 60s work! The group here really know their chops – and organ player Daddy Snuggs wails away in a style that's steeped in Patton's sound, with touches of Trudy Pitts and Freddie Roach as well. The rest of the other young group features guitar, saxes, and drums – and the album's a no-nonsense groover that jams with the intensity of a lost 60s album on Prestige! Titles include "Into Somethin", "Bucketful Of Soul", "Theme From The Green Scarab", "Wantu Wazuri", "Greyboy", and "Soul Woman". CD

✨✧ Rufus HarleyBagpipes Of The World (3CD set) ... CD
Transparency, 1995/2002/2006. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really loving tribute to the late Rufus Harley – and a massive 3CD set of work that's quite different than his older recordings on the market! This set brings together live performances and some radio work done by Harley in the last decade or so of his life – really haunting music that shows an even deeper side of Rufus' jazz talents than we've ever heard on record! CD 1 features a rare performance by Harley in France, with the trio of pianist Georges Arvanitas – recorded in 1995, a decade or so after his studio album with the group – and these tracks are mixed with solo bagpipe numbers by Rufus – which makes for a very compelling mix. The jazz tracks have Harley on both bagpipes and soprano sax – and include "Summertime", "My Shining Hour", "It's Me", "We Me Us", and "Moon River" – mixed with untitled solo tracks, and a radio interview. CD 2 features the last Rufus Harley interview ever – nearly an hour long, and recorded on WHUS in 2006. Remaining tracks on the disc, plus more on the third disc, feature trumpeter America Patton Harley – playing with a cool group that includes Andy LaVerne on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and John Riley on drums – and another group that features Harold Mabern, Ron Carter, and Adam Nussbaum – on titles that include "A New Love Supreme", "Mr PC", "Naima", "Noah's Ark", and "Soultrane". Then, most of CD 3 features Rufus and Patton, playing together live in Jamaica in 2002 – a pretty unique performance that has Harley Sr on bagpipes and soprano sax, and Harley Jr on trumpet – with some electric backing from a Jamaican combo – on titles that include "Stormy Weather", "The Crack", "Melodies Of The World", "Scotland The Brave", and "Someday My Prince Will Come".
