King Sunny AdeGems From The Classic Years – 1967 to 1974 ... CD
Shanachie, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
A well-done collection of some of King Sunny Ade's first recordings in Nigeria – presented in a package with great sound, and a heck of a lot of music overall! The work here has been reissued on other CDs by African Songs in the UK, but this collection is much more all-encompassing – and features a whopping 75 minutes of music, pulled from a variety of different releases. Sunny's at the lead on guitar and vocals on all tracks – and the music is a nicely spare approach to juju, one that's different from his better-known later work on Island. Many titles here are extended medley numbers that are over 15 minutes in length – and tracks include "Ori Mmi Maje N'Te", "Nibi Lekeleke Gbe Nfosho", "I Sele Yi Leju", and "Sunny Special". CD

A nice set from King Sunny Ade, licensed to the Makossa label, but in the style of his African recordings, featuring a number of shorter compositions strung together into side-longsuites.

Nat King ColeHittin The Ramp – The Early Years 1936 to 1943 (180 gram pressing – 10LP set) ... LP
Resonance, Late 30s/Early 40s. New Copy 10LP ... $149.99 199.99
A mindblowing look at the early years of Nat King Cole – a set that stretches in a mighty wide space before Nat's big fame at Capitol Records – and which also greatly expands our understanding of the material he recorded during his Decca years too! The music takes Nat back to a time long before most folks know his music – with roots in the bluesier side of the Chicago scene, moving through jazzier modes of the swing generation, to the tight trio work that helped Cole shape the sound of a generation – and all before he even got a chance to record more as a singer, and with bigger backings too! There's definitely some early Decca Records material from the 78rpm years, but there's also lots of alternate takes, small label material for Philo, Excelsior, and other labels – then a stunning amount of transcription recordings that were done for radio and broadcast – plus a few live tracks too. Not all the work here was recorded under Nat's name, either – as there's tracks in which Cole features strongly in other combos – although most tracks are trio numbers, and guitar great Oscar Moore is in the lineup right from the start. The 10LP set features over 180 tracks in all, remastered with really great sound – plus a 16 page booklet that's filled with notes, photos, and lots more musical history! LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King Cole & Quincy JonesSwiss Radio Days Vol 33 – Nat King Cole & Quincy Jones ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1960. Used ... $11.99
A beautiful set by Nat King Cole joined by conductor/bandleader Quincy Jones and his Big Band – performing live in Zurich on May 1, 1960 – and what an impeccable performance it is! Quincy was touring with a pretty amazing line-up in his Big Band at this point – with Benny Bailey, Jimmy Cleveland, Melba Liston, Phil Woods, Sahib Shihab, Joe Harris and more – and they kick off the set with a couple gentler numbers before swinging more heavily on a couple, then introduce Nat – who's voice is in perfect form here. He sings his hits with the big band, some additional strings and a pared down trio format for a few – so we really get a broad representation of what these consummate performers can do in a number of settings, all in one concert, to boot. Wonderful stuff – released for the first time ever! Titles include "Moanin'", The Midnight Sun Will Never Set", "Airmail Special", "Unforgettable", "Sweet Lorraine", "Tea For Two", "Madrid", "The Phantom Blues", "Route 66", "Joe Turner's Blues", "The Midnight Sun Will Never Set" and more. Also includes a 5 minute interview with Nat. CD

A tight date from 1977, and one that follows nicely in the spirit of King's later Stax sides, but with a slightly smoother groove. There's a bit of the Detroit 70s mode going on in the set – that rough-and-smooth quality that you'd find on a Don Davis production, which proves to be a wonderful blend for King's music, especially on some of the album's funkier numbers. Titles include "Chump Change", "You Upset Me Babe", "Let Me Rock You", "Boot Lace", "Love Mechanic", "Call My Job", and "Good Time Charlie". CD

This one's way better than any of the "best of" comps of Ben's work, and it really shows how great a soul singer he was apart from his hit material – and it's filled with gems like "River Of Tears", "The Record", "Here Comes The Night", "On The Horizon", and "Yes". The notes are great, too, and the whole thing's the sort of priceless UK soul reissue that we'd love to see more of these days! LP, Vinyl record album

The rare second album from Clydie King – recorded at a time when she was lending her backing vocals to artists like The Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, and Humble Pie – but a set that firmly puts Clydie in the lead! King's got an amazing style of singing – deep and raspy at one moment, with key southern soul roots – yet also totally tight and together, too – with a focus that really shines on the album's more upbeat tracks – groovers that almost have an east coast club vibe at times, quite similar to material that Clydie recorded with the group Brown Sugar! Titles include "Rushing To Meet You", "Loving You Is So Easy", "Steal Your Love Away", "Punish Me", "Our Love Is Special", and "Morning Sun". CD

A fantastic collection of work from Elizabeth King – a gospel singer who never reached the same sort of fame as singers who moved into the secular world – but one who's got a vocal power that would have made her a star, had she chosen such a move! The tunes here all feature King singing with tight small combo backing in a very rhythmic mode, and with strong support from a male backing group – who offer up this great call/response energy to Elizabeth's lead – which only seems to drive the music even further forward with its power! The tracks were all recorded in Memphis in 1972 – and titles include "Can't Do Nothing", "I Found Him", "This Man", "I'll Fly Way", "I Heard The Voice", "Stretch Out", and "Down Here Waiting". CD

Emily KingEast Side Story ... CD
J Records, 2007. Used ... $2.99
A tight little debut from Emily King – a blue-eyed soul singer from New York, and a bright new talent who's destined for big things! Although younger than some of her contemporaries, Emily's got a voice that's bold and strong – a contemporary soul approach that's never too cliched or commercial, and which has a nice sense of poise. Emily plays acoustic guitar alongside her vocals, yet the album avoids any "acoustic soul" traps, thanks to tight production from Chucky Thompson, who still lets the beats take the lead on most tunes. Titles include "Colorblind", "Alright", "You Can Get By", "Hold Me", "U & I", "E Melody", and "Walk In My Shoes", which features a guest appearance by Lupe Fiasco. CD

Evelyn Champagne King will always be most popularly remembered for her massive disco pop crossover hits of the late 70s, but she progressed really nicely throughout the 80s, keeping up with the evolving dancefloor soul sounds of the times – and Face To Face is a lean, clubby electro soul and funk flavored set with catchy hooks and sweet vocals by Evelyn! The production duties are split almost evenly between the team of Leon Sylvers, Foster Sylvers & Joey Gallo and Andre Cymone – both of which embrace synth and programming, with Cymone's coming off a bit clubbier – but all of it nicely frames Evelyn's lovely vocals. Includes "Action", "Face To Face", "Shake Down", "Telll Me Something Good", "Don't It Feel Good", "Makin' Me So Proud", "Givin' You My Love (What Cha Gonna Do With It)", "Teenager" and "Let's Get Crazy".

The mode's a bit like Denise Williams at the time, although maybe a bit less commercial – and King brings in a host of different producers to help give different shape to different tracks in the set – almost in a way that tries to reach out towards a number of (then) contemporary soul modes – some mellow, some upbeat and grooving.

Leonard KingLater Then Is Latter Now (3CD set) ... CD
Uuquipleu, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 3CD ... $21.99
A fantastic overview of the many strong jazz contributions that drummer Leonard King has brought to the Detroit scene from the 70s onward – as a musician who both continues the earlier spirit of righteous groups and soulful combos in that city! The package features unissued material from a variety of different groups that King led or performed with over the span of 20 years – material that's different than other CDs he's issued by these acts – and which, taken together, really blow us away with the scope of sounds in the mix, almost all of them deeply spiritual, and often quite funky. The 3CD set features almost two full discs of work by the excellent Strata Nova ensemble – plus more from The Imports, Synchron, Oopapada, Trinidad Sanchez, and Ron Allen – with players who include Glenn Myrick and Faruk Z Bey on tenor, Ron English on guitar, Pamela Wise Harrison and Billy Wooten on piano, and Harold McKinney on piano and vocals. Those musicians really tie the set back to older Detroit experiments on the Tribe Records and Strata labels – and titles include "We Gone Baby", "Pay Toilets", "Flor Y Canto", "For Black Poets Who Think Of Suicide", "Coming Nations Fanfare", "Moors", "Hijack", "Walkin With Dave & Rodney", "Libra's Longing", "Drums For Ali", and "Funkytaneously".

Muse, 1986. Sealed ... $5.99
Later work from Morgana King – but further proof that the lady's one hell of a singer, and kept on making wonderful music long after fading from the public spotlight! The album's a relatively subtle affair, but that's the sort that always makes Morgana sparkle the most – the kind of record that lets her really open up with those amazing vocals, and stretch into space with a subtle, yet powerful feel. Bill Mays handled the arrangements, and also plays a bit of keyboards – and other players include Ted Nash on reeds, Steve LaSpina on bass, and Adam Nussbaum on drums. Titles include "Will You Still Be Mine", "Simply Eloquent", "Body & Soul", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", and "Down In The Depths". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter KingOmo Lewa ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.98
A great one from Nigerian bandleader, composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter King – working in a funkier mode here than on the more jazz and roots based groove of his first record! The highlife sound is still a vital component, but on this one, Peter embraces a harder hitting approach on the percussion end, with some straight up Afro Funk elements that suits it incredibly well. It's got a hypnotic vibe throughout! King handles a lot of the instrumentation himself, including saxes, flute, piano, string, some percussion and the soulful vocals – and the titles include "Omo Lewea", "Yere Africa", "Afro-Funk", "EDA", "AJO", "Congo" and "Ko Dara".

Teddi KingNow In Vogue (plus Miss Teddi King & Round Midnight) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Three rare Storyville albums from singer Teddi King – all packaged up here in a cool Japanese paper sleeve set! First up is Now In Vogue – one of a number of great small group sessions done by singer Teddi King for the Storyville label – nicely relaxed, with backing from a septet that features Billy Taylor on piano, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Gene Quill on alto! The Storyville approach really brings out the best in Teddi's vocals – as the easy-going nature of the record has King sounding a bit more grown-up and adult than before – singing lines in a slightly sultry style, yet still with some of the bird-like notes heard on other albums. Taylor's piano adds a nice grounding to the record – and titles include "Old Folks", "Why Do You Suppose", "I'm In The Market For You", "You Hit The Spot", "Something To Live For", and "Like A Ship Without A Sail". Miss Teddi King is great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". Round Midnight features vocals as dark as they are lovely – a sublime early set from singer Teddi King, served up in a style that's nicely perched between two decades of jazz! There's a moody, intimate feel here that really takes us back to an earlier era – a bit in the way that Lee Wiley often does at the same period, with a sound that's almost timeless, yet never outdated. The only backings here are piano from Beryl Booker – and in a way, the record's almost a duet outing between Teddi and Beryl, with a wonderfully intimate feel overall. Tracks include "Round Midnight", "What's New", "I Concentrate On You", "Little Girl Blue", and "It Never Entered My Mind". CD

Teddi King with Dave McKennaThis Is New – Teddi King Sings Ira Gershwin ... LP
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $1.99
A very laidback little album from Teddi King – a set that mostly features Teddi singing with only piano accompaniment from Dave McKenna, and which also features a few solo tracks by Dave as well! Teddi's voice has changed a bit since the 50s – but in a good way, with a bit more human qualities amidst the trademark trills – especially in the company of McKenna's thoughtfully crafted piano lines. The titles are all Gershwin tunes, taken at a very relaxed pace – and tracks include "Soon", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Here's What I'm Here For", "Isn't It A Pity", "My Ship", "How Long Has This Been Going On", and "But Not For Me".

King Bruce & The Black BeatsGolden Highlife Classics ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1950s/1960s. Used ... $11.99
Raucous highlife from Ghana! In the late 40s bandleader and trumpeter King Bruce occasionally played in the Tempos, the legendary band led by ET Mensah, and by 1952 he formed the Black Beats to fulfill his own distinct vision, honing a more aggressive and looser take on the style. Although he was a huge fan of American swing as well as calypso, Bruce never forgot the Ghanaian traditions he grew up with – the Twi, Ewe, and Ga – and marvelously reconciled them with modern styles he was digging from across the pond. In particular, the wonderful horn arrangements here are appealingly loose and freewheeling – it's clear these cats dug jazz – with trumpet lines peppered with blue notes and wild growls that would make Bubber Miley blush. The later tracks here include some killer electric guitar lines and solos, quietly signaling the shift towards the instrument highlife would take in the 70s. Tracks include "Medaho Mao", "Aban Kaba", "Nantsew Yie", "Agodzi", and "Won Ma Menka". CD

King CrimsonIn The Court Of The Crimson King (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Inner Knot, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s! This set's the first-ever utterance from the King Crimson empire – the initial outing of the group, which featured Greg Lake on vocals, and lots of airy, darkly atmospheric guitar from the legendary Robert Fripp! The song structure is quite unusual – and the overall feel is less academically tangled than some of the later records – a feature that makes this album much more sought out by mainstream rockers looking for an intro to the group than some of the later sets. Yet having said that, there's also a pretty amazing approach here – somewhat obtuse, and definitely not looking for any radio edit hits – more just magical musings from a very unique ensemble. Peter Sinfield contributed the lyrics, which are sung by Lake – and Michael Giles handles drums and percussion, while Ian MacDonald plays flute, sax, keyboards, and more. Titles include "Moonchild", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "I Talk To The Wind", "Epitaph", and "Court Of The Crimson King". LP, Vinyl record album

For some folks, this might be the purest moment of sonic genius from King Crimson – a record that has this incredible dynamic range, with ultra-low passages followed by soaring highs – all delivered by a group that might well be one of the most technically skilled that Robert Fripp had put together by the time! Fripp himself handles many guitars and devices – alongside drums from Bill Bruford, viola and violin from David Cross, percussion from Jamie Muir, and superb bass and vocals from John Wetton – who really gives the group a focus and soul that balances out he geekier technical moments. Titles include the soaring two-part title track – plus "Easy Money", "Talking Drum", "Book Of Saturday", and "Exiles". LP, Vinyl record album

King CurtisInstant Groove/Get Ready ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969/1970. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A pair of classics from one of the best saxophonists in soul music – back to back on a single CD! First up is an Instant Groove from King Curtis – and a record that's even more deeply soulful than some of his other Atlantic albums! The title cut's a killer – a hard-vamping number that pushed funk further into the mainstream back in the day – and lots of the rest of the album follows suit, by bringing in some of the rougher King Curtis edges that usually only showed up on b-sides of 45s – while other full albums usually focused on sweeter sounds. There's a few of those here too – but even those tracks have a looser, more personal feel than before – not as much "perfect" soul sax, and a bit more grit. Arrangements are by Arif Mardin and King Curtis – and Duane Allman plays guiter on some cuts! Titles include "The Weight", "Sing A Simple Song", "Instant Groove", "Hey Jude", "Games People Play", "La Jeanne", and "Foot Pattin". Get Ready is sly soul from the great King Curtis – one of his last albums ever, and one of his best as well! There's a hip sort of edge to the record that's different from the Curtis groove of the mid 60s – less standard soul instrumental covers, and a much more righteous feel overall – part of the vibe that King had been crafting for others in the late 60s Atlantic studios, and partly the funky undercurrents that would often only show up on some of his 45 releases for the label! The backing group here is really great – with rhythm work from Eddie Hinton on guitar, Barry Beckett on keyboards, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – and solo moments from Cornell Dupree on lead guitar, and both Joe Newman and Ernie Royal on trumpets. King produced the record himself, and one cut features slightly different instrumentation – with organ by Jimmy Smith and piano by Richard Tee. Titles include "Floatin", "Sugar Foot", "Soulin", "Teasin", "Let It Be", "Someday We'll Be Together", "Something", and "Promenade". CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1971. Used ... $16.99
The King Curtis combo in all of its glory – really grooving hard here in a set of instrumental performances recorded at the same time as Aretha Franklin's famous live date at the Fillmore West! King backed Aretha up on her own record from Fillmore, but this set features all the instrumental grooves laid down by Curtis and his group before Aretha took the stage – very tight and funky numbers that showcase King's work on alto and soprano sax, as well as organ from Billy Preston, guitar from Cornell Dupree, electric piano from Truman Thomas, and funky drums from Bernard Pretty Purdie! The Memphis Horns get into the action a bit – blasting out when the tunes require it – and as with the Franklin album, the recording style here is totally great – very "live", but still with the best focus of Atlantic studio soul! Titles include a smoking 7 minute version of King's funky classic "Memphis Soul Stew", plus long takes on "Changes", "I Stand Accused", and "Soul Serenade" – as well as shorter versions of "A Whole Lotta Love" and "Ode To Billy Joe"!

Aware, 1973. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really grabs his groove from the very first note on the set! Backings are hard and funky – lots of fuzzy guitar work from Herman Hitson and Lee Moses – and the tunes come across with a gritty mode that sometimes rolls into mellower southern soul styles, but still never lose their edge. Bits of politics creep into the lyrics nicely, but never get in the way of the groove – and tracks include a long version of Hannibal's classic "Hymn No 5", plus "Party Life", "I Got That Will", "The Truth Shall Make You Free", "Wake Up", "Black Girl", and "It's What You Do".

King PleasureSource (Original Moody's Mood/Golden Days) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
An important set that documents a nice patch of King's early vocalese jazz sides – pivotal vocal jazz recordings that were not only enormously popular with listeners around the country, but which also did a heck of a lot in the way of advancing the way that male singers handled lead vocals on jazz-based tunes! The first album's pulled from his Original Moody's Mood For Love set for Prestige, which was itself a compilation and features "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Red Top", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "I'm Gone", "Funk Junction", "You're Crying", "Don't Get Scared", "This Is Always', and "Exclamation Blues". The second LP's the hard to find Goldne Days set, a beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made. The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. 21 tracks in all.
