✨✧ Karen AbbottSin In The Second City – Madams, Ministers, Playboys & The Battle For American's Soul ... Book
Random House, 2007. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Our fair city of Chicago has always been a pretty sleazy place – but back at the start of the 20th century, there was a higher kind of sex trade going on – one that featured high class houses of ill-reputed, and well-educated hookers – which led to a lot more crossing over between the brothels and the boardrooms! This well-done book looks at a very specific time in the city's history – a point when Chicago was really coming into its own – both as a city of industry and a city of sin – a place where reformers rubbed shoulders with gangsters, as part of the new urban experiment. The book does a great job of tracing this larger narrative, in a way that's hardly as salacious as you might expect – a different sort of snapshot than the Devil In The White City. 364 pages, softcover. Book
(The spine has a small remainder mark.)

CapitolsWe Got A Thing That's In The Groove/Tired Running From You ... 7-inch
Karen, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $7.99
Two northern soul killers form The Capitols! "We Got A Thing" is a shameless follow-up to "Cool Jerk" – but we don't care, because the cut grooves great, and has some really wonderful drums at the beginning. "Tired" begins with some great drums, too – but then swings into a loping harmony groove that's really catchy. Great stuff – thanks to Ollie McLaughlin! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Excellent work from one of the best Detroit groups of the 60s! Both tracks move way past their "Cool Jerk" hit – but still have the same fire and soul of that one. Ollie McLaughlin produced, and the whole thing swings nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Vinyl has a drillhole through the deadwax.)

Doug HammondEllipse ... CD
Idibib/Octave (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About March 25, 2020
Quite possibly the rarest album ever from this great percussionist – and one of the most intimate, too – given that the record only features Doug Hammond on drums, percussion, and piano – alongside flute from Karen Joseph! The percussion alone is great, and handled by Doug with a really cool style – most likely multi-tracked, so that he's also adding some voice and piano to the percussion and drums – sometimes with very rhythmic, earthy pulses – sometimes a lot more offbeat and outside! And although Joseph plays on the record, there's a lot more solo percussion moments throughout – which almost has Hammond in territory of work by artists like Andrew Cyrille or Milford Graves. That comparison is a key acknowledgement of the sometimes-overlooked genius that Hammond brought to the New York scene in the 70s – as we think you'll agree when hearing tracks that include "East 14th Street", "Concentric Dream", "Warm Up", "Funk Beat From The Motherland", "Night Of Sand", "Apple Birdleg March", and "Prayer From The Sun".

Doug HammondFolks ... LP
Idibib/Manufactured, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A lasting classic from drummer Doug Hammond – maybe one of his most widely-circulated records, even though the whole set is still relatively obscure! That doesn't stop the music from being great, though – and the whole thing is a great bridge between the New York loft jazz years of the 70s, where Doug was a key performer – and some of the later soulful styles of jazz expression that would flourish in the 80s – a kind of new confidence brought back to the mainstream, with subtle messages really creating power in the music! Much of the record is more inside than you might expect, but still swings with a real edge – very much in the early 80s spirit of Black Saint/Soul Note – and Hammond works with a very cool shifting lineup of musicians, which creates a special flavor for each track on the set. Musicians include Marvin Blackman on alto and tenor, Hubert Eaves on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, Byard Lancaster on alto, Karen Joseph on flute, and Muneer Abdul Fataah on cello – and the record features vocal performances from both Bessie Carter and Angie Bofill – the later of whom is a real surprise on a record like this. Titles include "Togetherness", "What's Happening Now", "Folks", "Perspicuity", "Pony Pone", and "Kone Pone". LP, Vinyl record album

Yukari Ito with The Green GingerLove ... LP
Denon (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A strange and wonderful album of lovely pop! Japanese singer Yukari Ito performs with the Green Ginger vocal group, and warm jazzy arrangements by Osamu Shoji – in kind of a late 60s/early 70s pop mode with a fuzzy LA twist. Yukari's got a bit of Karen Carpenter in her voice – but it might just be the production, which gives her singing the same sort of flanged-out quality on the best tracks. Includes two great originals – "Green Ginger Flying" and "And Now I Know" – plus "Your Song", "For All We Know", "When Oh When", "Our House", "Close To You", and "Love Story". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy gatefold pressing!)

✨✧ Jimmy LyonsPush Pull ... CD
Hat Hut/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1979. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Alto saxophonist Jimmy Lyons had a legendary run of performances on record with Cecil Taylor – but he sounds equally amazing here as a leader – given the space to really stretch out in a 3LP set that brings together a landmark live performance from 1978! Lyons works here with some lesser-known names – a quintet that includes Karen Borca on bassoon, Hayes Burnett on bass, Munner Bernard Fennell on cello, and Roger Blank on drums – but all players really catch the fire from his horn, and open up in a way that starts with loft jazz inspiration, then really soars to the stratosphere! The live setting of the album – recorded in a cinema – brings a really great quality of "space" to the overall production – and you can really feel Lyons and the group working together as their sounds and performance echo throughout the theater. Titles include the 32 minute "Mary Mary" – plus "Tortuga", "Breakout", "After You Left", and "Push Pull". CD

✨✧ Steve SwallowSwallow ... CD
Watt/ECM, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warm, soulful fusion from Steve Swallow – one of his most full-realized albums for ECM in years! There's no tricks or gimmicks here, no too-surprising turns – and instead, Swallow works in a mode that's surprisingly soul-based at most points – yet handled in ways that are quite far from the too-smooth fusion modes that were hitting the mainstream at the time! Instead, the record's almost a throwback to the most laidback electric modes of the 70s – flowing easily, and opening up in these gentle grooves that are mighty nice – thanks to help from a lineup that includes Steve Kuhn on piano, Carla Bley on organ, Karen Mantler on keyboards, Hiram Bullock on guitar, Gary Burton on vibes, and John Scofield on guitar – all players hip enough to keep things from ever sounding cloying. Titles include "Soca Symphony", "Slender Thread", "Thrills & Spills", "Playing With Water", "Thirty Five", and "William & Mary". CD

✨✧ Dennis WilsonPacific Ocean Blue (2CD legacy edition – limited deluxe package version) ... CD
Columbia, 1977. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly sweet solo effort from Beach Boy Dennis Wilson – a record of surprising depth and darkness, and arguably stronger than most of the albums at the time from the larger group! Dennis produced the album himself, with some executive help from James William Guerico – whose guidance here seems key, given the overall quality of the set. There's some echoes of Beach Boys' styles in the music, but the sound is much more personal as well – Wilson's ragged vocals in the lead on all numbers, sometimes upfront and fragile, sometimes given a bit more umph through the use of processing – at that level that the whole group would often experience in the studio during the 70s. The album's as much of a showcase for Dennis' writing skills as it is for his vocals – and songs are co-written with co-producer Gregg Jakobson, as well as Carl Wilson, Mike Love, and Karen Lamm-Wilson. Titles include "River Song", "Friday Night", "Thoughts Of You", "Dreamer", "Time", "You And I", and "What's Wrong". This limited version of the expanded Legacy edition is really amazing – with a huge booklet of notes and photos, as well as essays on Dennis' music – plus session bonus tracks that include "Mexico", "Holy Man", "Only With You", and "Tug Of Love". Also features a full bonus CD with the sessions for the unreleased Bambu album – with tracks that include "School Girl", "It's Not Too Late", "Under The Moonlight", "Are You Real", "He's A Bum", "Cocktails", "I Love You", "Constant Companion", and "Time For Bed".

Expansion (UK), Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful overview of contemporary female soul – none of it commercial, and nearly all of it from the mighty Expansion family of labels – home to some of the hippest Neo Soul around! Work here is from both American and overseas sources, and although a few tracks are issued under the name of a male artist, they also feature a female singer taking on a key lead vocal for the cut. 2CDs and 30 tracks in all, with titles that include "Stay With Me" by Steve Harvey with N'Dambi, "Joy From That" by Tonia Smith, "Same As I Ever Was" by Adriana Evans, "That's What Love Can Do" by Yvonne Shelton, "Love Will Get Us Through The Times" by Preston Glass with Latoya London, "Closure" by Maysa Leak, "Shine" by Aja, "Let's Not Lose" by Kloud 9 with Karen Bernod, "Good News" by Noel Elmowy with Erana Mei Leef, "Is It Love" by Brigette, "Out Of Luck" by Jackie Campbell, "Sensual Loving" by Nicole Jackson, "Blew My Cool" by Eleana Young, "Vanilla Tree" by Gwendolyn Joy, and "I Can't Let You Go" by Steve Harvey with Ledisi.
