✨✧ Evan Parker & Paul LyttonCollective Calls (Revisited) (Jubilee) ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue follow-up to the seminal set of improvisations issued as Collective Calls in the early 70s – a legendary record that's echoed beautifully in this new set of duets! And maybe, if anything, the passage of years has shown even more incredible growth in the talents of both players – as Evan Parker's range of sounds on the tenor here is simply breathtaking – and Paul Lytton's ability to change speeds and styles on the drop of a time really blow us away – the kind of spontaneous creativity and boundless sonic imagination that can make the best albums of improvised music stand out so strongly from the rest. The set features eleven selections, each given a long title pulled from the writings of Elias Canetti! CD

Cadillacs/OriolesCadillacs Meet The Orioles ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A split album of work from doo wop legends The Cadillacs & The Orioles – featuring about a side apiece of music by each group, pulled mostly from singles for the Jubilee label! The Cadillacs are represented here by their highly frenetic approach to vocals – a style that made them almost an east coast version of The Coasters – while the Orioles have that warmer, rounded style that made them one of the key groups in the transition from older harmony to doo wop in the 50s. Cadillacs tunes include "Let Me Down Easy", "It's Love", "C'Mon Home Baby", "Lucy", "and "Buzz Buzz Buzz". Orioles tracks include "Baby Please Don't Go", "Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me", "A Kiss & A Rose", and "You Belong To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Costa/Vinnie BurkeEddie Costa/Vinnie Burke Trio ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1956. Used ... $13.99
A spare and sweet little set from the team of Eddie Costa and Vinnie Burke – one of the best of the east coast chamber jazz groups of the mid 50s! The pair's trio has Eddie on piano and vibes, Vinnie on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – all working together to craft light, rhythmic versions of tunes that really change them up rhythmically – working in the most playful mode of the time to freely create over the top of familiar numbers that include "Fascinating Rhythm", "It Could Happen To You", "Sweet & Lovely", "Yesterdays", and "Let's Do It". The set also features two nice originals – "Unison Blues" and "Pile Driver". CD

Mike CuozzoMike Cuozzo With The Costa Burke Trio ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1956. Used ... $13.99
One of the few albums as a leader from Mighty Mike Cuozzo – a tight tenor player with a great sort of 50s swing! The set's the kind of no-nonsense, well-blown effort you might expect from Sonny Stitt or Seldon Powell at the time – tunes that pack in plenty over a relatively short space – really transformed by Mike's deft talents on the tenor, with a surprising degree of soul in the mix as well! Rhythm is by Eddie Costa on piano, Vinnie Burke on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and the whole thing's got the solid feel of a lost Roost session. Titles include "Blue Jeans", "Bounce For Mike", "Ten AM", "Lover Man", and "That Old Feeling". CD

Matt DennisWelcome Matt Dennis ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A lesser-known set from vocalist Matt Dennis – not as well-remembered as his 50s dates for RCA and Kapp, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Matt's working here with full backings from Sy Oliver – in a set that showcases his talents more as a singer than a songwriter – but which still manages to include a few great Dennis originals. And despite a cover that looks a bit lurid – with Dennis cornering a model inside a hotel room – the overall feel of the record is quite homey and domestic, with tunes that echo images of hearth and family, but often with the kind of nod and a wink which you might expect from Matt's usual approach to a tune. Titles include "Home", "Welcome Mat", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "By The Fireside", "A Cup Of Coffe A Sandwich & You", "Let's Put Out The Lights", and "Your Family". LP, Vinyl record album

Med FloryJazz Wave ... LP
Jubilee, 1957. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A big, bold jazz wave from Med Flory – a leader/arranger from the west coast scene, and one who takes the power of some cool jazz legends, and puts them in a setting where they can really pack a punch! The group features Bill Holman on tenor, Al Porcino on trumpet, and Bob Enevoldsen on trombone – and there's a deftness to the horn arrangements that seems rooted in the best earlier Woody Herman modes, but taken to hipper territory in the end! There's lots of contributions from the soloists – even in the shorter space of the tunes – and titles include the originals "Davy Jones", "Jazz Wave", "Rapture", and "Sea Chase" – plus the tracks "An Occasional Man", "Jonah & The Whale", and "Ocean Motion".

✨✧ Moe KoffmanCool & Hot Sax ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
An early effort from saxman Moe Koffman – a much straighter jazz record than some of his later funk, flute, and cosmic groove experiments – and a nice one at that! The album features Koffman mostly on tenor, leading a septet of Canadian players in a set of tightly arranged titles that feature some nice breakout moments. But the one non-tenor part of the album is an important one – as it features Moe's original reading of "The Swingin Shepherd Blues" – done on flute, and in a sweetly stepping groove that made the track an important hit single, and a key step in the acceptance of the flute in mainstream jazz. Other titles include "Hey There", "Francesca", "General Delivery", "Coaster", and "The Baron". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou LevyLou Levy Plays Baby Grand Jazz ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... $14.99
Given that a busty babe is leaning into the left side of the piano keyboard on the cover, we'd almost expect Lou Levy to focus mostly on the lighter notes on the right – but instead, he really opens up with some great deep notes on the cover, and takes the album far past anything you might expect! Levy's a really subtle player, one who never overstates his obvious ear for modern tones and musical elements – but he's really got a way of bringing them into his music in ways you wouldn't expect – either in the way he shapes a note on the mellower cuts, or comes up with a groove on the more lively ones. There's none of the flowery sounds you might expect from the "baby grand" title – and instead, Lou is in very comfortable territory – working in trio format with the great Max Bennett on bass, and drummer Gus Johnson – on titles that include "Little Girl", "Undecided", "The Gypsy", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "I've Found A New Baby", and "You Don't Know What Love Is".

Della ReeseMelancholy Baby ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Della Reese definitely takes the "melancholy" in the title seriously here – and turns the set into one of her most blue-tinged records from the early days! The backings are full, but never too lush – handled perfectly by Sid Bass, who shades in the corners with some sad strings that match Della's soulful vocals in the lead – very expressive, but in an understated way – maybe a bit like the young Carmen McRae singing this sort of material, but with a sense of phrasing that's much more her own. Titles include "It's Monday Every Day", "I Could Have Told You So", "All Alone", "One For My Baby", and "I Get Along Without You Very Well". LP, Vinyl record album

Della ReeseStory of the Blues ... LP
Jubilee, 1957. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A really cool concept record from Della Reese – and an early album that shows just how deeply she approached her role as a jazz singer! The set's the "story of the blues" promised in the title – as Della both sings songs with older roots, and presents overarching narration between them – while Sy Oliver presents some great arrangements that evolve nicely over the course of the record – matching Reese's presentation of the lyrics as the as the musical style shifts! The project is the brainchild of Mort Goode – who wrote the text for the narration – but only Della could make it come off so well – free of hoke, as you'll hear on titles that include "Empty Bed Blues", "Lover Man", "There's Always The Blues", "Stormy Weather", and "Squeeze Me".

Della ReeseWhat Do You Know About Love ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Prime early Della Reese at her best – a record with a really moody feel, and a depth that few other singers can match! The arrangements from Reg Owen have a fair bit of strings, and a very blue undercurrent – and Della's vocals cut through them strongly with a soulful, searching feeling that almost reminds us of a young Nina Simone. The set's free from some of the easier cliches of Della's career, and is exactly the kind of record to showcase her at her best. Tracks include "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "You Better Go Now", "I Never Knew", "I Thought Of You Last Night", "I'm Thru With Love", "That's All There Is", and "I Got It Bad".

Lou Stein8 For Kicks 4 For Laughs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1954. Used ... $11.99
A unique little record – with some surprisingly nice touches! At some level, the record's got the feel of some of the east coast chamber jazz sets of the time – particularly those on Bethelehm and RCA – but at another level, there's a much more playful feel here, one that breaks down any genre conventions, especially in our expectations of the players. Stein's leading the group on piano, and working with a lineup that includes Billy Butterfield on trumpet, Peanuts Hucko on clarinet, Aaron Bell on bass, and Tony Mottola on guitar – turning in some really wonderful work that pushes the set in a number of different directions. You might expect a trad feel from the presence of Butterfield and Hucko, yet the album's got a playfully rhythmic groove that might be borrowed from trad, but which also has some great modern touches – made all the more so through Mottola's inventive work on guitar. Titles include "The Pendulum", "I Should Care", "Lou's Blues", "The Skull", and "When Your Lover Has Gone". CD

Whoppers indeed – a killer collection of vocal group material from the 50s – issued here in a classic package with a great "juvenile delinquent" cover! The tracks here are almost pre-doo wop in their historicity – work done when the genre was just getting started, by artists who helped bridge musical styles from an earlier era. Titles include "Sweethearts On Parade" and "Take Me Back To Heaven" by The Dominoes, "Marie" and "Sugar Lump" by The Four Tunes, "Crying In The Chapel" and "It's Too Soon To Know" by The Orioles, and "Green Eyes" and "I'll Always Be In Love With You" by The Ravens.

✨✧ Art BlakeyCu-Bop ... CD
Jubilee/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare Jubilee Records album from Art Blakey – one of his non-Blue Note sets from the late 50s, cut during the year of 1957 – a time when the Jazz Messengers were hopping around a lot of different labels! This version of the group is searing and soulful – and features Johnny Griffin on tenor, Bill Hardman on trumpet, Sam Dockery on piano, and Spanky DeBrest on bass – plus the unusual addition of Sabu Martinez on conga, rocking and rollicking alongside Blakey's drums in an amazing way! The set's quite different than some of Art's "with percussion" dates for Blue Note – as Sabu's congas kind of just set an extra fire to the hardbop groove – giving it a slight Latin flavor, but more than anything, just getting in a wicked edge that really cooks up the session. Griffin is great, as always, and the album features four long tracks "Woddyn You", "Sakeena", "Shorty", and "Dawn On The Desert". CD

✨✧ Ray Draper with John ColtraneTuba Jazz ... LP
Jubilee, 1958. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic work – and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by Ray Draper, a jazz tuba player, with an approach to the instrument that's a lot better than you might think! Draper plays the tuba like the best baritone saxophonists – using the lower registers of the instrument to groove around in tight step with the basslines, but always still managing to swing – a remarkable feat, given the heaviness of the instrument! Draper's talents were quite respected at the time – both by Jackie McLean, who used him on a record, and by John Coltrane, who makes a rare appearance here as a sideman on the set! The mixture of Coltrane's angularity and Draper's bassiness is sublime – and the album's filled with great tracks that have a fresh late 50s modernist hardbop approach. Titles include "Essii"s Dance", "Yesterdays", "Oleo", and "Doxy". LP, Vinyl record album

Dodo MarmarosaOn The Coast 1945 to 1947 & 1952 ... CD
Uptown, Mid 40s/1952. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 24.99
Many great slices of work from the early years of pianist Dodo Marmarosa – actually the only years that had Dodo really shining in the limelight – as he made only a handful of rare recordings between 1953 and 1961! Yet these sides are equally rare – as the set brings together obscure 78rpm singles, sometimes with Dodo as the leader, sometimes working with other groups – and also includes a fair bit of rare broadcast material too, really tracing a great evolution of Marmarosa's style over a few short years! The package is overflowing with material – far more than for us to mention in just a few short notes – but we can tell you that it includes Atomic Records 78rpm releases under the name of the Dodo Marmarosa Quartet with Lucky Thompson on tenor, the Dodo Marmarosa Trio, Lyle Griffin & His Orchestra, and the Barney Kessel All Stars – plus Down Beat label 78s by the Lucky Thompson Quartet with Marmarosa on piano, Irra Records material by singer Miss Danna, and Encore Records work by Ray Linn & His Orchestra. There's also MacGregor transcription tracks by the Dodo Marmarosa Trio, Jubilee Transcriptions by the Just Jazz All Stars with Howard McGhee on trumpet, and radio broadcast material by Boyd Raeburn All-Stars, Viven Garry Trio, and Lucky Thompson Quartet – all featuring Marmarosa. The set mostly features mid-40s work – but ends with two long tracks recorded at the Lighthouse in 1952 – with Dodo in a group that also includes Shorty Rogers on trumpet, Jimmy Giuffre and Bob Cooper on tenors, and Milt Bernhart on trombone.

One of the sexiest covers ever to grace a Wynton Marsalis album, but thankfully a record that's still got plenty of real jazz roots – and not the smoother sound you might expect from the image on the front! The group here is Wynton's expanded septet – a combo with Marcus Roberts on piano, Wes Anderson on alto, Wycliffe Gordon on trombone, and Todd Williams on tenor, soprano, and clarinet – all in far-reaching modes of jazz expression that often have an imagistic, soundtrack quality – one that echoes years and places past. Wynton plays piano, and also speaks to introduce "Monologue For Sugar Cane & Sweetie Pie" – and other titles include "And The Band Played On", "Brother Veal", "Sometimes It Goes Like That", and "The Jubilee Suite".

VariousSun Gospel ... CD
Sun/Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Gospel genius from the legendary Sun Records – an imprint usually associated with the earliest roots of rockabilly, but also a Memphis powerhouse that managed to capture a number of different styles surprisingly well during the 50s! Sun had one of its big early hits with The Prisonaires – a group of convicts who could harmonize beautifully – and many of these tracks follow a similar vibe, with that up-close, uncluttered style of recording that Sam Phillips did so well – which really lets the vocals of the groups come through! But there's also some surprising crossover moments going on here too – as some tracks feature more familiar Sun artists singing spiritual tunes – showing just how much the gospel side of the market was during these formative years of country, pop, and rock. The set's got 32 tracks in all – a huge amount of overlooked material from Sun – and titles include "Softly & Tenderly" by The Prisonaires, "Forgive Me Lord" by Southern Jubilee Singers, "I Need Jesus" by Song Fellows, "Amazing Grace" by Jones Brothers, "House Of God" by an Unknown Female Trio, "Nobody's Looking Back" by Wally Fowler, "Rainbow Of Love" by Evans Family Singers, "Until I Pray For You" by Rudi Richardson, "Where Shall I Be" by Brewsteraires, "My Heart Is A Chapel" by Mary Johnson, "My God Is Real" by Prisonaires, "All My Sins Been Taken Away" by Sonny Burgess, "Round Up In Glory" by Sun Spot Quartet" – and the tracks "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" by the Million Dollar Quartet, and even a "Sermon" by Jerry Lee Lewis.

The collection reminds us a lot of some of the titles we've been loving from Mississippi Records – as it features gospel work that goes past the usual, often with bluesy undertones, and recorded with a very soulful edge. Arrangements are often full, but the production quality is nice and raw – and titles include "Eternal Life" and "The Life I Enjoy" by The Mosby Family Singers, "Somebody Help Me" and "Service For The Lord" by Madam Andres & The Heavenly Echoes, "New Burying Ground" and "If You Miss Me From Singing" by Union Gospel Singers, and "Beautiful Thought" and "Will The Lord Be With Me" by The Jubilee Hummingbirds.

Designer/Big Legal Mess, 1960s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous legacy in gospel music during the 60s – a crucially important indie from the Memphis scene – and one who recorded really great groups from around the country! Designer were helping shape the sound of modern gospel at the same time as Chess, Savoy, and some of the bigger labels – and doing their work with a similar ear towards some of the more soulful sounds of the secular world – particularly in the way the harmonies and sound of group vocals came together! And despite their name – designer – which might make you think in terms of throwaway fashion – the label has a really classic sound and a rock-solid approach, which makes this overstuffed 4CD set a treasure trove for anyone interested in these key years in gospel music. The set features 101 tracks, in a very cool LP-sized sleeve, complete with an oversized booklet filled with notes and photos – and the collection features work by Foster Brothers, Gospel Songbirds, Twilight Singers, Melody Kings Of Greenwood MS, The Jubilee Hummingbirds, Jackson Trumpeteers, Little Willie Patterson & The Famous South Land Singers, The Shaw Singers, Sister Carrie Daniel, and many many more!

A group who are best known for one huge hit in 1957 – but one who also recorded a fair bit of other wonderful material too – not just their early singles for Atlantic Records, but also a lot of material for other companies too – as you'll hear in this collection that brings together singles for King, Jubilee, Triple X, End, and other labels too! Although a girl group, The Bobbettes have lots of nice rough edges that are more R&B and deep soul overall – hardly the sweet pop of groups that would follow them in the 60s, and instead maybe a group expression of some of the modes that Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker were cutting for Atlantic – with maybe some of the energy of the doo wop groups thrown in for good measure. CD features 31 tracks – titles include "Speedy", "Zoomy", "Untrue Love", "I Shot Mr Lee", "Mr Lee", "I Don't Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)", "Mr Johnny Q", "Looking For A Lover", "Mama Papa", "Over There", "Loneliness", "I Cried", "Um Bow Bow", and "The Dream".

The title cut is a brutal attack on the free use of the word soul by black musicians – and Sarah delivers the words over spare conga backing by family member Cyril Leslie Fabio II. Cyril shows up on one other track – "Nina Giving Mr Backlash The Blues" – but most of the record features Sarah reading solo, without the musical accompaniment of her other Folkways album. The record's still a great one, though, as Sarah's voice and writing is always extremely compelling – without the cliches of some of her protest poetry contemporaries, and with an approach that's always smart and literate, yet still pretty spare and rhythmic. Titles include "Black World", "Hurt Of It All", "Bronzeville Breakthrough", and "For My People, A Jubilee". CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

✨✧ Pilgrim JubileesCrying Won't Help ... CD
Peacock/Playback, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky soulful gospel – and one of the greatest albums ever recorded by the Pilgrim Jubilees! The album's got a heavy soulful sound that would make groups like The Dells or The Dramatics proud – really righteous, with full-on production that's in the best mode of 70s secular funky soul groups at the time – much more Chess or Curtom Records in approach than you might expect – and at a level that makes the set essential for any fan of funk or soul, not just gospel! And yes, the tunes have a bit of a spiritual message, but one that's soft-pedaled at most parts – and sung with these incredible deep soul vocals by Clay Graham, who could easily give Joe Tex or Bobby Womack a run for their money. Titles include "Crying Won't Help", "Call Him Up", "Are You Ready", "Feeling", "A Job To Do", and "Exit 100". CD

✨✧ Supreme JubileesIt'll All Be Over ... LP
S&K/Light In The Attic, 1980. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gospel album from the end of the 70s, but a set that works equally well as a soul album too – thanks to the beautiful presentation of the grooves and the vocals! The vibe here is often laidback – more in a mellow Marvin Gaye sort of mode – surprisingly slinky and sexy for such a spiritual group, as are the lead vocals from Dave Kingsby – one of those singers who might have been huge, had he left the gospel field for the secular world! The group play their own instruments, and have this smooth, sweet vibe throughout – lots of keyboards that step underneath the vocals with a mix of midtempo and mellow modes – and production that's more early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the record – with almost a pre-modern soul sort of vibe. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "It'll All Be Over", "Do You Believe", "I Am On The Lord's Side", "We'll Understand", "Stop Today", and "Got A Right". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBless The People Everywhere – Gospel Funk Of Peacock & Songbird ... CD
Peacock/Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
The famous Duke/Peacock label was one of the most important forces in gospel music during the 50s and early 60s – home to some of the hippest, most soul-drenched acts – especially the male vocal groups that were helping transform the genre, and pave the way for lots of soul artists to come! Yet by the time of these sides, Peacock was also picking up a lot of influence back from soul music too – using funky currents to help sell a spiritual message – all at a level that never got in the way of the vocals at all, and in face only seemed to inspire the singers with a more righteous sound overall! Once the label merged with ABC Records in the early 70s, things got even cooler and groovier – but even on the cuts before those numbers, there's a funky soul vibe that resonates throughout this collection – and makes the whole thing one of the most badass gospel sets we've ever stocked. Titles include "Where Could I Go" by Pilgrim Outlets, "Try Again" by The Loving Sisters, "Generation Gap" by Paul Owens & The Capital City Star Singers, "Something For Nothing" by Carl Bean & Universal Love, "This Is Not The First Time I've Been Last" by Inez Andrews, "Voo Doo Ism" by Spirit Of Memphis, "Bless The People Everywhere" by Liz Dargan & The Gospelettes, "What's Wrong With People Today" by The Sensational Williams Brothers, "Games People Play" by The Salem Travelers, "Living A Saved Life Now" by Josh Albert Hailey, and "Crying Won't Help" by Pilgrim Jubilees.
