✨✧ Lightmen Plus OneEnergy Control Center (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lightin/Now Again, 1972. New Copy 2CD ... $6.99 15.98
Cosmic jazzy genius from Bubbha Thomas & The Lightmen – the kind of a record that sounds like it should have come out of Detroit or Chicago in the early 70s – and not the Texas scene from which the group hailed! The Lightmen have a vibe that reminds us a lot of The Pharoahs or some of the Tribe Records collective – a willingness to mix free-thinking jazz expression with tighter grooves and funkier rhythms – stepping out in an instrumental vibe that still has plenty of funky 45 touches, but which also sits nicely alongside the most cosmic work coming out from Impulse at the time! The title cut "Energy Control Center" has an electric spacey quality that reminds us of Sun Ra at his best – and other tunes soar out with a brilliant post-Coltrane sense of freedom evident in work on saxes, flute, and piano. Titles include "Wench", "Cold Bair", "Leo", "Jupiter's Child", and "The Phantom". This amazing expanded version features loads of bonus tracks, unreleased material, singles, and the great spiritual number "All Praises To Allah". CD

✨✧ Ty KarimComplete Ty Karim – Los Angeles' Soul Goddess ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from Ty Karim – a singer who definitely lives up to the "soul goddess" promised in the title! Ty might not be the biggest name in California soul, but she's a hell of a great talent here – starting out in the 60s with upbeat Northern Soul groovers – then moving into the 70s with material that's even deeper, and a bit more sophisticated – laidback numbers that really show a maturation in style, and which are filled with wonderful twists and turns! Ty's vocals have a burning quality that's quite surprising, given her kittenish look on the cover – and as the themes get hotter, her singing gets even more righteous – making the whole package a really wonderful journey in soul. And although most of these numbers were issued (or recorded, but unissued) by tiny indie labels, they often have a very full, spacious approach to production – one that's really trying to hit the heights of Detroit or New York at the time. A good number of these cuts weren't issued at the time, and together with the rare singles, they really go a long way towards filling in the gaps in Ty's too-short career on record – further illuminated in the detailed notes from Ady Croasdell. Titles include "Lighten Up Baby", "Help Me Get That Feeling Back Again", "Only A Fool", "All At Once", "Lightin Up", "I Ain't Lying", "You Just Don't Know", "Natural Do", "I'm Leavin You", "All In Vain", "After Your Love Has Gone", "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight", and "Don't Make Me Do Wrong".

✨✧ CommodoresNightshift ... LP
Motown, 1985. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
By this point in their career, The Commodores have lost Lionel Richie and any sort of funk credibility they had from their early years – but they also somehow manage to reemerge with a great new talent for a sweet mellow groove! The title tune "Nightshift" was one of those tracks that crossed over massively at the time – but to our ears, it also kind of redeemed the group too – as it's got a surprisingly soulful quality that really got the group past the soppiness of their ballads and love songs – gliding along with an almost-righteous quality that makes it a nice later cap to an earlier Motown 70s groove. Other tunes on the album don't always fare as well, but there's still some nice moments here – tunes that benefit from some Dennis Lambert production and hit just the right kind of mellow groove to follow up on the spirit of the single. Tracks include "Nightshift", "Slip Of The Tongue", "Lay Back", "Lightin Up The Night", and "The Woman In My Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsHis Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A hugely sprawling 2CD collection of spanning the career of the incredible Lightnin Hopkins – from his most beloved years from the late 40s to late 50s – and a quite wonderful collection of numbers from the 60s after he had captured the hearts of the young, idealistic folk crowd of the era! Disc one focuses on the years 1947 to 1959 – wonderful, wonderful solo blues recordings that are justifiably revered to say the least. Titles include "Lightin's Boogie", "Coffee Blues", "Moanin Blues", "Highway Blues", "The Foot Race Is On", "Hopkin's Sky Hop", "Short-Haired Woman", the previously unissued "Ain't No Monkey Man" and many more. 26 tracks on disc one. Disc two covers the 60s, when Lightin was recording for Fire, Bluesville, Jewel and other labels. Nice picks from the later years, including some live numbers. Includes "Mojo Hand", "Ida Mae", "I Got Tired", "Sinner's Prayer", "Slavery Time", "Tom Moore Blues", "Up On Telegraph Avenue" and many more. CD

Ralph LalamaStaycation ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2022. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A great little record, and one that's much better than you might guess from its title – as it's hardly an at-home recording by tenorist Ralph Lalama, and instead may well be one of his freshest albums in years! It's almost as if Ralph were storing up new ideas during the pandemic, and was finally able to get them out in the open in the studio when this set was cut in 2021 – on a record that's laidback, but full of some of the richest expression we've heard from Lalama's horn in years – alongside some equally great work from a group that features Joe Magnarelli on trumpet, Akiko Tsuruga on Hammond, and Clifford Barbaro on drums. Ralph's horn resonates beautifully with Joe's – and the organ lines bring this special sparkle to the record that never stops delighting as tracks move into one another. Three titles feature vocals from Nicole Pasternak Lalama – a hip singer with an Annie Ross sort of vibe – one who really brings a lot to the set, on titles that include "Make Me An Offer I Couldn't Refuse", "I Could Not Compare You", and "The Lamp Is Low". Other tracks include "Thaditude", "Cecil's Bridge", "Staycation", and "Good Trouble". CD

Bud PowellAmazing Bud Powell Volume 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 1953. Used ... $4.99
Bud's second LP for Blue Note – a firey batch of trio tracks that feature George Duvivier on bass and Art Taylor on drums – some of Powell's best work from the time, and a nearly all-classic set of bop piano tracks! The album's nothing fancy on the outset, but Powell and the trio really make magic happen on the best of moments – lighting fire underneath old standards, while also unveiling some hip new originals that are really worth the price of the set. Titles include "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Sure Thing", "Reets & I", "Glass Enclosure", and "Collard Greens & Black Eyed Peas", "Audrey", and "Autumn In New York". CD

Sun RaProphet (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1986. New Copy ... $25.99 26.99
The legendary Sun Ra is certainly a prophet in jazz – but here, the word has a different meaning – as it refers to the Prophet VS keyboard, which Ra used for the first time in this mid 80s recording! Sun Ra is no stranger to electronics – he was coming up with all sorts of weird and spacey sounds even before synthesizer equipment was easy for most musicians to use – yet here, he really makes some special sounds with the Prophet, handling the keyboards in ways that are far more exploratory, and maybe far more "human" than many other musicians at the time! The setting for these experiments is a studio in Massachusetts – and Ra is accompanied by key players who include Marshall Allen on alto, John Gilmore on tenor, Danny Ray Thompson on baritone, and James Jackson on the Ancient Egyptian Infinity Lighting & Thunder drum. June Tyson sings just a bit on the record – and titles include "The Prophet", "Infinity Excursion", "The Prophet At Play", and "The Prophet Returns". LP, Vinyl record album

Driving club tracks with a New York downtown feel – almost in the post-disco mode of the early 80s Danceteria scene, with bass and drums all messed up underneath, searching for a new kind of groove. August Darnell arranged the rhythm tracks – which is probably part of the reason for this – and the bass on the set is definitely leading the frontline on most tracks. Titles include "You Learned Your Lesson", "Number Player", "I Finally Found", "Is It Love", "Broken Dreams", and "Thunder, Lighting, & Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Rocky Road/Reel, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crowning moment of genius from Al Wilson – a Cali soul singer who'd already gotten a nice start in the 60s, but who really found his fame with the title track on this 70s gem! Wilson's got a style that's nicely expressive – never too overly dramatic, yet filled with charm – a quality that's really augmented by the arrangements on the record from HB Barnum – who does as great a job here with Al as he did with Lou Rawls in the 60s! The title cut "Show & Tell" is one of those numbers you'll recognize in the second – and the rest of the album's full of great material too – cuts that include "Queen Of The Ghetto", "What You See", "Moonlightin", and "For Cryin' Out Loud".

✨✧ Suzanne CianiMusic For Denali ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from electronic pioneer Suzanne Ciani – and one of the earliest too! The tracks here were composed for a documentary in 1973 – one dealing with skiing in Alaska – and Ciani uses a sublime mix of acoustic piano and Buchla synthesizer for the score – laid out on long tracks that have a really organic, tuneful energy – shifting between mood throughout the course of the record – and highlighting a warmth of piano talent that we never knew about from Suzanne! The blend of electric and acoustic is fantastic – a bit like some of the Brian Eno piano/electronics experiments over the years, and some of the mid 70s work issued on his Obscure Music imprint – although here, done by Ciani a few years before, the whole thing is even more revolutionary. Titles include "Windy Corner", "Fresh Snow", "Denali", "Downhill At Last", "Getting To The Top", "Snow Climbing", and "The Last Rest". LP, Vinyl record album

The resulting sound is very personal, and a great demonstration of a side of Mats that we've loved in live performance, but doesn't always make it onto record at this level – his incredible ability to pull all these textures and tones out of his horn – with a sense of timing that makes the whole performance a continued surprise – that quality that Gustafsson can have of both delighting himself when blowing, and catching himself off guard. Titles include "Song For The Vassilis", "Song For The Tongue Against The Glass", "Song For The Night", "Song For Foreign Air", and "Song For The Darkest Eye & Ear". LP, Vinyl record album

Dawn, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of the interesting Jazzville sides issued on the Dawn label, highlighting small cobos that fell a little outside the spotlight of some of the larger jazz oriented labels of the day, but worthy of far more than sidebar status. This set is divided in two like the ohers in the series, devoting one side of the LP to each of two artists. Charlie Smith's trio heads up side one, with drummer Charlie leading a tight trio featuring Hank Jones on piano and Oscar Pettiford on bass through crisp renditions of standards like "Hae You Met Miss Jones", "Body & Soul" and "Flying Home", plus Jones' "Blues For Sal". Side two features a larger group, showcasing reedman Aaron Sachs sextet with Dick Garcia, Osie Johnson, Aaron Bell, Joe Roland and Jimmie Cleveland. The deliver nice laidback takes on numbers that include "Aaron's Blues", "You're My Thrill", "Platter Pie", "Why Shouldn't I" and "Ah! The Pain". LP, Vinyl record album

BBE/Rapster (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s/1990s/Early 2000s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Gilles Peterson and Jazzanova may not be jazz artists themselves, but both have done a heck of a lot to keep the spirit of jazz burning into the 21st Century – playing older classics live, highlighting important new artists, and always encouraging the free spirit of creative improvisation! This wonderful package features tunes hand-picked by both Gilles and Jazzanova – done in the spirit of other "Kings" sets on BBE – with a similar wide range of grooves! Gilles steps away from obscurities this time – and beautifully illustrates his love of the music through some choice classics from the Fantasy, Blue Note, and Warner catalogs of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Jazzanova are in charge of grooves from more recent years – and bring together some of the best jazz-based bits from the global underground, including some key singles and remixes that really sound great here. Part 2 of the vinyl package mixes up both Gilles and Jazzanova selections – with 10 tracks that include "Into The Sun (KJM edit)" by Sleepwalker, "Spirits In Transit" by 4 Hero, "Loud Minority" by United Future Organization, "Moves" by Charles Mingus, "Spirits Up Above" by Roland Kirk, "Breaking Away (Koop rmx)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Young Rabbits" by Jazz Crusaders, "Anthenagain" by Art Blakey, and "Mother Of The Future (live)" by Bembe Segue.
