✨✧ Lewis TaylorLewis Taylor ... LP
Island/Be With (UK), 1996. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a classic from UK singer Lewis Taylor – one of the best blue-eyed soul albums recorded in the 90s, and a record that's still years ahead of its time! In a stretch when so many others were putting out fake soul – or breathing heavily on downtempo records – Taylor found a way to really deliver something new and unique, yet also come across with the classic mellow flow of 70s work by artists like Marvin Gaye or The Isley Brothers! Taylor's vocal delivery here owes plenty to both, but the production is very crisp and individual – handled by Lewis himself, and in a spare mix of modes that's quite different than some of the more stock "beats and keys" modes that would take over underground soul in the next decade! Instead, there's this great range of subtle tones and textures that work beautifully alongside Taylor's sublime vocals – all to suit some beautifully-written tunes too. Titles include "Lucky", "Track", "Betterlove", "Right", "Spirit", "Bittersweet", and "Whoever". LP, Vinyl record album

James Brandon Lewis & Chad TaylorLive In Willisau ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
Some of the boldest work we've ever heard from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – an artist you might know from his bigger label recordings for Okeh/Sony, but who sounds completely unbridled here in the company of the great drummer Chad Taylor! Taylor's a player who can step outside strongly, yet still find this inherent sense of swing – and that balance works beautifully alongside the tenor of Lewis, and seems to encourage him to take some great chances throughout the set – with some especially great moments of drums and tenor that almost evoke the way that David Murray or Sonny Rollins might handle such a performance! A really revelatory set – and a great reminder of Taylor's genius, too – with selections that include "Watakushi No Sekai", "Matape", "Come Sunday", "Imprints", "Twenty Four", "Radiance", and "Under/Over The Rainbow".

James Brandon LewisJesup Wagon (with bonus download) ... LP
Tao Forms, 2021. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
Maybe the strongest creative statement to date from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – an album of work inspired by the legacy of George Washington Carver – served up here with a sense of depth that's certain to open even more doors for Lewis in years to come! There's a majesty to the music that's apparent in the very first notes, and which keeps on coming as each song unfurls – that search for truth talked about in Carver's writings, quested here with a quintet that includes William Parker on bass, Chad Taylor on drums, Kirk Knuffke on cornet, and Chris Hoffman on cello! The energy of Parker and Taylor is sublime – and makes for a setting that's different than other recent records we've heard from Knuffke, who also seems to draw new currents of sonic inspiration from the gentle but powerful use of the cello. The tenor has a raw, sharp edge throughout – a personality that would be striking, even without the beautiful setting of Lewis' original material – and titles include "Lowlands Of Sorrow", "Jesup Wagon", "Experiment Station", "Fallen Flowers", "Seer", and "Arachis".

James Brandon LewisMolecular ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Saxophonist James Brandon Lewis just keeps getting deeper and deeper with each new release – very different than the artist who first emerged a number of records back, and one with a strong ability to explore the farther sides of the jazz spectrum! That's definitely the case here – as Lewis plays tenor at the head of a quartet with Aruan Ortiz on piano, Brad Jones on bass, and Chad Taylor on drums – a lineup who are more than fluid enough to move with the ideas that flow effortlessly both from the compositional pen of the leader, and his well-crafted, very personal lines on tenor sax! The tunes vary in length, which further deepens the individuality of the set – and titles include "Helix", "Per 1", "Breaking Code", "An Anguish Departed", "Loverly", "Molecular", "Cesaire", and "A Lotus Speaks".

Chess (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99

✨✧ VariousRoy Orbison Connection – 34 Roots & Covers Of Roy Orbison ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Roy Orbison is one of the most unique figures in rock and roll – so much so, we always tend to think of the man as a musical style unto his own – an assumption that's nicely broken by the wealth of work in this wonderful set! As the title implies, the CD features covers of Roy's hits, and tunes that inspired his music too – but way more than that, the whole thing really sets a scene for the rising power of Orbison from the Sun years onwards – music served up by singers who don't try to copy that unusual vocal style of Roy, but instead go off in all sorts of different directions on the tunes! As with the other Bear Family titles in this "connections" series, the approach is great – very illuminating, and supported by copious notes that really get at all the different things that are going on. 34 tracks in all – with titles that include "Go Go Go" by Narvel Felts, "Pretty Paper" by Willie Nelson, "Candy Man" by Wanda Jackson, "I Like It" by Vince Taylor, "You're My Baby" by Billy Lee Riley, "Rock House" by Bobby Fuller, "Oobie Doobie" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Woman Blues" by Jerry Lee Lewis, "Blue Bayou" by Mike Redway, "The Crowd" by Waylon Jennings, "In Dreams" by Les Carle, and "Running Scared" by Paul Rich.
