Bud PowellTime Waits – The Amazing Bud Powell Vol 4 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.99
A great little record, and one that shows just why Blue Note chose to put "amazing" in the title of every Bud Powell album they released! The set's a live one, done at Birdland – and Bud's working here with a trio that features the young Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – both musicians you might be more likely to hear over at Riverside Records, and who help give Powell a mighty solid formation here! There's a strong sense of cohesiveness to the trio, and we're always in love with Jones on bass – but it's also clear that Bud's the shining star of the date, as he amazes the world once again with his restless sense of imagination and creativity on the keys of the piano! Titles include "Marmalade", "Monopoly", "John's Abbey", "Dry Soul", "Time Waits", "Buster Rides Again", and two takes of "Sub City". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bud PowellBlues For Bouffemont/Hot House (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fontana/Muzak (Japan), 1964. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pair of late Bud Powell albums – brought together here in a single set! First up is Blues For Bouffemont – wonderful late work from pianist Bud Powell – recorded in France, where Bud seemed to do all of his best recordings in the early 60s! The setting is a trio – with Art Taylor on drums and Michel Gaudry on bass – but as always in such a mode, Powell has a way of opening the tunes up wonderfully – exploring the boppish currents that he first helped unveil years before, but also showing a newfound lyricism that makes us wonder what strong role Bud would have played on the European scene, had he survived into the 70s! Titles include "Una Noche Con Francis", "Like Someone In Love", "Blues For Bouffemont", "Moose The Mooche", "Little Willie Leaps", and "My Old Flame". CD also features bonus tracks with a second trio – "I Know That You Know", "Star Eyes", and "There Will Never Be Another You". Next is Hot House – maybe the last album that Bud Powell ever recorded with a horn player – and a fantastic one too – as the set features tremendous work from rising tenor genius Johnny Griffin! The setting is a live one – with Guy Hayat on bass and Jacques Gervais on drums – and the group open up wonderfully to provide this really crispy setting that brings out the best in Griffin's tone – that amazing edge that he always had right from the start, but which really seemed to come into focus even more strongly during this stretch overseas! Some tracks are nice and long – especially versions of "Wee", "John's Abbey", and "Straight No Chaser" – alongside tunes that include "Bean & The Boys", "Move", and "Salt Peanuts". CD

✨✧ Charlie Parker & Miles DavisBlue Bird – Legendary Savoy Sessions ... CD
American Jazz Classics (Spain), Mid 40s. Used ... $9.99
The second half of Charlie Parker's legendary early work for Savoy Records – the complete master takes of all his recordings with a young Miles Davis! The work on the set spans the years 1945 to 1948, and features some of the ultimate early Bird 78 rpm singles – made even better by the presence of Davis as a sideman. Other players on the sessions include Max Roach, Bud Powell, Duke Jordan, John Lewis, and Dizzy Gillespie – and titles include "Billie's Bounce", "Now's The Time", "Donna Lee", "Buzzy", "Milestones", "Sippin At Bells", "Blue Bird", "Barbados", "Constellation", "Parker's Mood", and "Ah Leu Cha".

✨✧ SupersaxDynamite!! ... LP
MPS, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A looser, more free-swinging album than usual for Supersax – one that still has the group working with some key contributions from west coast jazz luminaries, but in a vibe that's almost more small combo than larger ensemble! The tracks here include a fair bit of Bud Powell and Charlie Parker numbers, but the arrangements are mighty fresh – open, and swinging with some hipper 70s touches, thanks to rhythms from a trio that features Lou Levy on piano, Fred Atwood on bass, and John Dentz on drums – players that are never locked into a strict bop mode. As with other Supersax albums, there's a brace of reed players working together at the front – Lanny Morgan on alto, Jack Nimitz on baritone, and both Jay Migliori and Don Menza on tenors – coming together as one voice on the solos, and getting some key help from Conte Candoli on trumpet and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Titles include "The Fruit", "Bambu", "Blues For Alice", "Tempus Fugit", "Parker's Mood", and a surprising, but great take on Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithProcession Of The Great Ancestry ... CD
Nessa, 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – an early 80s session, but one that we'd rank with some of his most-together work ever! The album's a mixture of spare modes and some surprising group elements – a set that often has Smith blowing beautifully on trumpet or flugelhorn, alongside the vibes of Bobby Naughton and percussion of Kahil El Zabar – the latter of whom makes a strong, spiritual appearance here – really helping to shade in some strong sounds to Leo's music. Naughton's vibes are great too – very angular and chromatic, with the sharpness of Bobby Hutcherson's avant work of the mid 60s – and one track features John Powell on tenor, and two more have Louis Myers on guitar – bringing in these weird harmelodic bluesy tones which then accompany vocals from Smith! Titles include "Nuru Light", "The Flower That Seeds The Earth", "Jah Jah Is The Perfect Love", "Procession Of The Great Ancestry", and "Third World Grainery Of Pure Earth". CD

✨✧ Bernard Purdie (Pretty Purdie)Soul Drums (50th anniversary 2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Date/Nature Sounds, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Massive work from one of the funkiest drummers of all time – the legendary Bernard Pretty Purdie, stepping out here in a batch of instrumentals that may well be his greatest album ever! Bernard's drums are right up front in the mix – leading off all tunes with a full, funky, echoey sort of approach that's unlike anything else we can think of – and certainly different from any other late 60s albums of this type! The production is totally great – and has a way of pulling out some of the weirdest aspects of the music – which itself features guitar from Billy Butler and Eric Gale, bass from Bob Bushnell, tenor and flute from Seldon Powell, and organ and piano from Richard Tee – who also handled all the arrangements on the set! The centerpiece is the hit single "Funky Donkey", but just about every track's a groover in its own way – and titles include "Soul Drums", "Bill's Groove", "Jimmy's Back", "Testifyin", "Modern Jive", "Blow Your Lid", "Bee N Tee", and "Soul Bossa Nova". This new edition includes 8 bonus tracks, with a couple rare 45 tracks and more that have never been released – all soulful & funky – well paired with the Soul Drums album! Bonus tracks are in stereo, and include "Alexander's Rag Time Band", "Genuine John", "Soul Clappin", "If You Never Cried", "Stop" and "Time Is Tight". Also comes with a nice booklet with new liner notes, and choice quotes from Purdie's peers and those he influenced, from Galt MacDermot to Large Professor. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPop Genius Of Mickie Most ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
They're not lying with the title of this one – as producer Mickie Most was one of the true studio geniuses on the UK scene of the 60s – as you'll hear here in a fantastic collection of some of his best work – packaged with a beautiful 72 page booklet of notes that will tell you everything you'll need to know about the man himself! But even without the big booklet, the music here speaks volumes on its own – as Mickie's genius runs from some of the key groups of the Brit Invasion years, to that fantastic late 60s moment when the English scene was getting very cool and expressive – to key 70s points that include a bit of early glam, hard rock, and other styles too! You've probably heard a good number of these tracks over the years, but never realized they all had Mickie's hands on them – and they're packaged together here with some great surprises along the way – titles that include "Gin House" by Paul Williams & The Big Roll Band, "Little Games" by The Yardbirds, "Motor Bikin" by Chris Spedding, "House Of The Rising Sun" by The Animals, "Hi Ho Silver Lining" by Jeff Beck, "Journey" by Duncan Browne, "Brother Louie" by Hot Chocolate, "Sunshine Superman" by Donovan, "I Love Rock N Roll" by Arrows, "Living Next Door To Alice" by New World, "The Boat That I Row" by Lulu, "Walking" by CCS, "Dance With The Devil" by Cozy Powell, "No Milk Today" by Herman's Hermits, "Flight 2" by Angelo & Eighteen, "Some Girls" by Racey, "Bread & Butter" by Barry St John, "Days Of My Life" by The Seekers, and "48 Crash" by Suzi Quatro.

✨✧ Waller Creek Boys with Janis JoplinWaller Creek Boys ... LP
Lysergic Sound, 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Janis Joplin may be best known for her contributions to mainstream rock at the end of the 60s – but here, she's a much younger singer, working in a very cool, rootsy group from the Austin scene – a trio that features her own vocals and work on autoharp, with Waller Creek Boys Lanny Wiggins on acoustic guitar and Powell St John on harmonica – both of whom would go onto later fame in the Texas underground! The style here is nicely rootsy – folk blues, but with some original material by Janis – who's already got this incredible voice on the sessions, even though she's only 19 years old. Some of the recording quality is a bit raw, but that also maybe makes the music sound even more intense – as you'll hear on titles that include "How Long", "No Reason For Livin", "Trouble In Mind", "Daddy Daddy Daddy", "Banks Of The Ohio", "St James Infirmary", "Railroad Bill", and "Winnin Boy Blues".

He's got a nice little combo on the record that includes Plas Johnson and Seldon Powell on saxes, plus some Latin percussion by Johnny Pacheco and Ron Rich. The great Leroy Vinnegar rounds out the group on bass, providing the rich strong groove that he adds to Les' best recordings of the 60s. Includes an excellent 2-part version of "Sunny", an early version of "Compared To What", and the tracks "Summer Samba", "Sad Little Girl", "Les Skate", and "Pretty Flamingo".

Players on the set include Art Farmer, Clark Terry, JJ Johnson, Seldon Powell, and Pat Rebillot – and there's a nice choppy approach to the tracks that keeps the whole thing fresh! Titles include "Live Oak", "Patcham", "Panache", "Green Moss", and "The Lady From Nine Flags". Very groovy cover, too – with images of ladies from around the world, illustrating the Nine Flags concept! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJewel Deep Soul Story (3CD set) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 3CD ... $69.99
A beautiful batch of southern soul tracks – and one of the first times anyone's really made a strong set out of the under-reissued gems from the Jewel/Paula catalog! Most of the interest in the label's reissues has leaned towards the bluesier side of its output – and while this set definitely has a touch of the blues, it's also got a lot more soul numbers than we've ever seen on other Jewel compilations – a really rich array of material that shows just how powerful the Shreveport-based label was in keeping the southern soul flames alive. Plus, the package is very well divided – with one CD of 60s tracks, one of 70s classic soul, and one of smoother modern numbers from the later years of the label – work that never gets reissued that much, and which is a great counterpart to the older songs!. Titles include "A Man In Love" by George Patterson, "What Was I Suppose To Do" by Clarence Carter, "I'm Trapped" by Carl Sims, "Go On & Help Yourself" by Albert Washington, "Losers Win Sometimes" by Billy Keene, "Baby Be Mine" by Eddy Giles, "Ain't That The Way" by Clay Hammond, "Do What You Think Is Best" by Buddy Ace, "Checkin Out" by Lee Shot Williams, "I Want You Back Again" by Johnnie Taylor, "There Goes The Girl" by Banny Price, "Right Now Is The Time" by Willie Morganfield, "Lay It On Me Right Now" by Na Allen, "Heap Of People" by Dee Allen, "Over & Over" by The Conway Brothers, "I Stayed Away Too Long" by Wallace Brothers, and "Funky Broadway" by Bobby Powell.

Roulette, 1961. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A killer set from Count Basie – recorded during the height of his years at Roulette! The back cover of the record proclaims that "Basie Is Back Home" – clearly a bit by Birdland to lay claim to being the Count's home address, which is a bit of a challenge to his KC roots! Whatever the back story, though, the set's a nice one – swinging hard in that completely tight 60s mode, with a great lineup that includes Frank Foster and Budd Johnson on tenor, Thad Jones on trumpet, Bennie Powell on trombone, and Freddie Green on guitar – a really great group who definitely make the record a cooker! Tracks include "Good Time Blues", "Segue In C", "Little Pony", "Discommotion", and "Whirly Bird", which has a vocal by Jon Hendricks! LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie JeffersonThere I Go Again ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s/1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A really great overview of the career of Eddie Jefferson – one that begins with his first few vocal singles of the 50s, and follows him through album work for Riverside and Prestige in the 60s! Jefferson's contribution to jazz is tremendous – as he was one of the first to set lyrics to solos by famous players of the time, giving them deeper meaning with his own new lyrics and his warmly raspy vocal presentation of the material. Here, he's working with a top-shelf array of jazz players who really appreciate his work – including Seldon Powell, Clark Terry, Charles McPherson, Barry Harris, Johnny Griffin, and James Moody – the last of whom was a longtime friend and collaborator of Jefferson. Titles include "Soft & Furry", "Old Shoes", "Baby Girl", "Come Along With Me", "There I Go There I Go Again", "Filthy McNasty", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Now's The Time", "Things Are Getting Better", and "Disappointed".

There's lots of originals on the set – including "Reuben's Tune", "Two By Four", "Uptown", "High Low", "Guitar Speaks", and "The Theme" – plus versions of "What'd I Say", "Can't Sit Down," and "Eric's Flute".

✨✧ VariousDisco 75 (3CD set) ... CD
Robinsongs (UK), 1975. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 30.99
1975 was a crucial year in the history of disco music – the moment when sounds that had been bubbling under on the east coast in the early part of the decade finally hit both the radio and the record racks in a really massive way! And while the music might soon be bogged down in commercialism and cash-in recordings, the cuts here represent a key moment when all sorts of different artists were picking up the pace, learning the lessons of some of the super-sharp funk groups of the underground scene, and blending those modes with soaring vocals and impeccable production! The collection offers a really great overview of styles here – not just some big hits of the time, but also some overlooked gems, and a number of tracks that feature older artists sounding surprisingly strong in the new disco modes – mixed with just a few very unusual tracks that we're not sure we've ever seen on CD before. The 3CD box features a massive 55 tracks in all – with cuts by Seldon Powell, Armada Orchestra, Black Stash, Doris Duke, Herbie Mann, Moses Dillard, Rhythm Makers, Frankie Valli, Major Lance, Jesus Alvarez, Gene Page, Seeds Of The Earth, Chuck Jackson, Calendar, Rhetta Young, Joe Bataan, Derek Martin, Sylvia, The Reflections, Pat Lundi, Moments & Whatnauts, Glitter Band, Banzai, Brother To Brother, Al Matthews, Universal Mind, Johnny Otis, Soul Train Gang, Beeeny Groy, Juggy Murray Jones, Dooley Silverspoon, and many others!
