Lionel Hampton with Milt Buckner & The All StarsAlive & Jumping ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A great revival moment for some older jazz giants – all players who really catch fire here in the MPS scene of the 70s! The record features the vibes of Lionel Hampton in the lead (and, if the cover is to be believed, also a bit of drums) – and also includes excellent work from Milt Buckner on Hammond (one of his last sessions ever) – plus especially strong work from Cat Anderson on trumpet and Eddie Chamblee on tenor – both players who really get to step out here a bit at times, and remind us what they can do when they really get a chance to wail! Other players in the small group include Billy Mackel on guitar and Paul Moen on alto – and titles include "Midnight Sun", "Avalon", "Funky Mama", and "I'm Confessin" – plus the obligatory jam on "Flying Home".

Buddy Rich/Lionel HamptonTransition ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
A mixed bag of work from Buddy and Hamp – part straight jazz, and part sweet electric funk! The first two-thirds of the album features Rich and Hampton with Terry Wilson on piano, Zoot Sims on tenor, and George Duvivier on bass – grooving hard in that open-ended way of some of Hampton's small group dates for Verve from the early 50s, on titles that include "Avalon", "Ring Dem Bells", "Ham Hock Blues", and "Air Mail Special". The last third of the album features a larger group – still with Rich and Hampton, but also with some keyboards from Kenny Barron, plus tenor by Sal Nistico and guitar from Jack Wilson. The vibe on these tracks is a bit more 70s-styled – with some of the soaring electric modes you might expect from Groove Merchant! Titles include "EG" and "Fum" – both great funky numbers! LP, Vinyl record album
(A great copy!)

Jimmy ClevelandIntroducing Jimmy Cleveland & His All Stars ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Good ... $14.99
An early leader session for Jimmy Cleveland – one that pulls him out of the Lionel Hampton group, and puts him in the company of a number of different all-stars – top level players that Mercury brought together in three different sessions for the album. Players include Lucky Thompson, Cecil Payne, Barry Galbraith, Wade Legge, Paul Chambers, and Jerome Richardson – and it's the quality of the ensemble grooving that really makes the album swing, a lot more than Cleveland's solos on his own. Titles include "Vixen", "Hear Ye Hear Ye", "See Minor", "Bone Brother", "Count 'Em", and "Little Beaver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label drummer logo pressing with deep groove. NOTE – Vinyl has a small edge warp that causes the first track on each side to skip. Rest plays VG. Cover has yellowing from age, small seam splits, gloss peel at the sides, and pencil in back.)

VariousAfrica Funk Roots – Chapter Two ... LP
Cosmic Disco Machine (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $32.99
Maybe not the complete roots of African funk, but a set that does a great job of bringing together a range of different cuts that show the new sounds and styles that were really hitting the scene as the 70s moved in – work from a wide variety of sources, but which all seems to share a sound and spirit with some of the newly independent African nations! There's a few African funk cuts in the mix, but the more interesting ones are almost those from the Anglo world that show a similar sense of groove, but with a slightly different vibe – coming across here on cuts that include "Waterbed (inst)" by LTD Exchange, "African Queen" by Allez Allez, "Them Changes" by Lionel Hampton, "Sangandongo" by Niagara, "Wassahoumba" by Africa Djole, "Do The Choo Choo" by Jack Ashford, "Africa Gone Funky" by Screaming Jay Hawkins, "Super Kumba" by Manu Dibango, "Tite Rope" by Harold Alexander, "Fat City Strut" by Mandrill, and "Corey Died On The Battlefield" by Wild Magnolias.

VariousSoul From The Cities Vol 2 – Chicago ... CD
Richmond/Demon (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
A nice little collection of Chicago soul – featuring mostly Carl Davis-produced tracks from the Brunswick and Chi-Sound labels, stretching back to the late 60s, and running up until the end of the 70s. There's a good mix of styles on here – but the work is all strongly linked by Davis' high level of quality in the studio, and by his willingness to keep a nice groove in a track, no matter what the pace. Titles include "There It Is" by Lionel Hampton, "Oh Boy" by Dana Valery, "It's Cool" by Walter Jackson, "Lady Lady Lady" by Barbara Acklin, "Wrapped, Tied, & Tangled" by Lavern Baker, "Especially For You" by Manchild, "Come To My Party" by The Impressions, "The Girl Turned Me On" by Jackie Wilson, "Windy City Theme" by Windy City Orchestra, and "Love Uprising" by Otis Leavill.

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsClassic Coleman Hawkins Sessions 1922 to 1947 (8CD set) ... CD
Mosaic, 1920s/1930s/1940s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing set throughout – not just for the musical growth of Coleman Hawkins, but also for the development of the tenor sax in jazz, too! These sides could very well be said to be THE seminal recordings for tenor – the records that helped transform the instrument from a bit of a trick noisemaker into one of the most dominant voices in jazz during the 20th century – the beginning of a rich legacy that went onto encompass Lester Young, Stan Getz, John Coltrane, and so many others! The package captures Coleman Hawkins right at the start of his career – with vital early 78rpm recordings that move from trad to swing to some of the modern combo sounds that Hawkins would blow in the postwar years. And the range of settings is amazing, too – not a loose collection or mish-mash of material, but a really thoughtful progression that has Hawkins working with Mamie Smith, Fletcher Henderson, Clarence Williams, The Chocolate Dandies, and McKinney's Cotton Pickers in the early years – then moving up to work as a leader on his own – as well as material with Lionel Hampton, Benny Goodman, Benny Carter, and Count Basie. Most of the later material is for small labels – like Baronet, Cont, Meritt, Neatwork, and others – and the early sides are for Okeh, Columbia, Vocalion, Brunswick, and other smaller imprints. Features 190 tracks in all, and very copious notes, too – an amazing package from Mosaic! CD
