Bobby BryantBig Band Blues ... LP
Vee Jay, 1959. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the earliest albums ever recorded by trumpeter Bobby Bryant – but a set that was also only issued after his bigger albums of the 60s! The set was cut for Vee Jay in 1959, when Bobby was living in Chicago – but wasn't issued at the time – and it's a fantastic document of the player's great early sensibilities, almost a precursor to some of the hipper big band work that would come out of the west coast scene in the 60s. Many titles are familiar, but they're redone with a tremendous sense of rhythm and groove – executed by Bobby and the band with some really great solos, and held down by a tight rhythm section that features John Young on piano. Other players include Louis Satterfield and John Avant on trombones, and James Spaulding and Willie Randall on saxes – and titles include "Sleepy", "Love For Sale", "Blues Excerpt", "Indiana", "Falling In Love", and "Harlem Rain".

Duke Ellington/Louis ArmstrongParis Blues – Original Soundtrack ... LP
United Artists, 1961. Sealed ... $16.99
We've always loved Duke Ellington's soundtracks, and this is one of his best! The score is a moody introspective one, written for a 1961 film that starred Paul Newman as a frustrated jazz musician living in Paris. The "Paris Blues" theme is a dark, somber composition that is supposedly Newman's masterpiece as a jazz writer – and it works beautifully with the film's themes of frustration and unfulfilled desire. Ellington's at his best here, and apart from the main theme, the score also has great versions of classics like "Mood Indigo" and "Take The A Train", plus originals like "Nite", "Wild Man Moore", "Guitar Amour", and "Paris Stairs". Also features Louis Armstrong on one track! LP, Vinyl record album

Fabio Frizzi/Walter Rizzati & Alessandro BlonksteinerLucio Fulci's Gates Of Hell Trilogy (City Of The Living Dead/The Beyond/House By The Cemetery) (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980/1981. New Copy 3CD ... $44.99
Three Italian horror classics – packaged here in a single set! First up is Fabio Frizzi's score for Nella Citta Dei Morti Viventi/City Of The Living Dead – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was one of the true masters of Italian horror! The sounds here are a mix of electric and acoustic elements – but the latter are often played in offbeat ways that they really sound electric – making for a moody mix of music that goes way beyond the usual spare slasher keyboards! A few numbers use wordless vocals, while others have nicely stepping strings – and a beefier bassline comes into play on a few standout funk tracks as well. Titles include "Toward Dawn", "Fatti Misteriosi", "Apoteosi Del Mistero", "Occhi Di Brace", and "Verso L'Alba". Next is Frizzi's Beyond/E Tu Vivrai Nel Terrore L'Aldila – a very spooky soundtrack – and one that stands out as one of the best-remembered from this important second generation of Italian horror! The record's got less of the atonal orchestrations and funk/thriller modes of a few years before – and moves into the spare, eerie quality that John Carpenter helped usher in – with lots of crashing piano lines, atonal guitar parts, and weird descending chords that feel like they're going to suck you into the deep! There's some very nice and sparing use of synthesizer within the score – just the right bit to add a creepy edge, but maybe not as much as on other synth-heavy soundtracks from the time – and titles include "Voci Dal Nulla", "Oltre La Soglia", "Suono Aperto", "Verso L'Ignoto", and "Giro Di Blues". Walter Rizzati's score for Quella Villa Accanto Al Cimitero/House By The Cemetery has lots of keyboards – in a spare, spooky soundtrack from the early 80s Italian horror scene – a blood-dripping masterpiece from director Lucio Fulcio! Walter Rizzati's music here is heavy on the kinds of electric touches you'd hear from both Goblin or John Carpenter – and often paced at a level that's somewhere between the pair – not as jamming as Goblin, but a bit fuzzier than Carpenter – a blend that makes for some really wonderful numbers that are plenty creepy here on their own – even away from the images on the screen! There's plenty of great bits that creep up on you slowly – and others that jump mercilessly from dark corners – on titles that include "Quella Villa", "I Remember", "Incontro", "Blonk Monster", "Verso Il Terrore", "Voci Dal Terrore", "Tema Bambino", and "Chi Sta Arrivando".

Henry ManciniBlues & The Beat ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good- ... $1.99
This is a pretty jazzy record compared to the usual Mancini soundtrack-type stuff. It's mostly mellow the whole way through and has some very nice moments due to the quality of the playing. His orchestra includes such folks as Pete Condoli on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone, Johnny Williams on piano, Victor Feldman on vibes & marimba and Larry Bunker on vibes. There is only one Mancini original – "The Beat" – and the others are jazz standards such as "Misty", "After Hours", "Mood Indigo", "Tippin In", "Sing, Sing, Sing", and "Big Noise From Winnetka".

✨✧ John Mayall's Blues BreakersHard Road ... LP
Deram, 1967. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A killer album from one of the most legendary versions of John Mayall's Blues Breakers – a quartet that features drummer Aynsley Dunbar, bassist John McVie, and lead guitarist Peter Green – who's also singing a fair bit on the album as well! The style here is tighter and more focused than before – showing a bit more of a rockish bent, especially on the guitars – but still strongly drenched in American R&B traditions, served up in a way that never waters down the sound for a mainstream audience. While other UK artists were taking American roots and softening them up for the charts, Mayall only seemed to deepen his commitment to more authentic representation of the styles – really only taking a bit more liberties with the strength and length of guitar parts. As before, there's a bit of reed work here that's especially nice – served up by UK jazzers Ray Warleigh, John Almond, and Alan Skidmore – and titles include "A Hard Road", "It's Over", "The Stumble", "Dust My Blues", "There's Always Work", "The Same Way", "The Supernatural", and "Living Alone".

Frank Morgan with Cedar WaltonEasy Living (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Contemporary/Victor (Japan), 1985. Used ... $18.99
A great date from the later revival years of altoist Frank Morgan – thanks to a warm performance from the Cedar Walton trio! One of the great things about late Morgan is the way in which he's able to really fit himself into different settings – still holding onto his soulful roots, but also fluidly picking up the best elements of the groups he works with – such as the rich tones and soaring styles that Walton brings to this session! Cedar's piano always sounds great with a horn, and the warmth in Morgan's alto is quite a different match than some of Walton's tenor-driven sessions – and bassist Tony Dumas and drummer Billy Higgins keep things in just the right subtle side of the spectrum to fit the mood. Titles include "The Rubber Man", "Yes & No", "Manha De Carnaval", "Now's The Time", "Three Flowers", and "Third Street Blues". CD

Rashod OllisonSoul Serenade – Rhythm, Blues & Coming Of Age Through Vinyl (hardcover) ... Book
Beacon, 2016. New Copy ... $6.99 25.98
A well-written book, and one that's about way more than just the records hinted at in the cover – as music critic Rashod Ollison tells his tale of growing up in the south during the 80s, living with upheavals in his household, struggles with his own sexual identity, and other issues that challenged him constantly – through times during which music provided a key solace. The book is Ollison's story, but also serves well as an essay on the role of music in the larger realm of African-American culture – and the way it can provide both inspiration and escape, motivation and a space for reflection.

VariousLiving On The Hill – A Danish Underground Trip 1967 to 1974 (3CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99
A heady look at the Danish psych scene at the end of the 60s – music that's not nearly as well known as US or UK material from the time – but every bit as groovy! Most of these groups sing in English, and are sharing some of the same influences that were coming out of the British scene in the late 60s – no surprise, as they were probably receiving most of the same pirate radio broadcasts that were such a key part of transformative modes during the decade – which means that you'll hear a huge strain of elements running through this music – influences from jazz and blues, as well as a shift from beat group styles into much more sophisticated modes – including proggy touches too. Most of this work was only the stuff of obscure psych reissues in the past – but this box set really illuminates the scene, along with a huge booklet of notes and images. 32 tracks in all – work by Hurdy Gurdy, The Old Man & The Sea, Thor's Hammer, Beefeaters, Young Flowers, Day Of Phoenix, Rainbow Band, Burnin Red Ivanhoe, Blast Furnace, Pan, Ache, Savage Rose, Culpeper's Orchard, and many more!

Blossom Dearie/Bobby JasparAdorable Blossom Dearie (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
A great look at the earliest years of the lovely Blossom Dearie – and a set that also features a surprising amount of work from reedman Bobby Jaspar, who was making big waves on the Paris jazz scene at the same time the young Blossom was living in France! CD1 features the pair together – a lovely set of duos with Bobby on flute and Blossom on piano, pulled from a rare 7" EP – which is then followed by a set of piano instrumentals lead by Dearie, from the album Jazz Sweet – a French-only release! The CD then follows with Blossom's great vocal jazz group The Blues Stars Of France – with tracks from both their first album and their rare EP – great vocal harmony numbers of bebop tunes. CD2 features Blossom's famous self-titled album for Verve – a great American debut – but then follows with lots more rare material, including a Blue Stars 7" single, a rare Dave Lambert & Buddy Stewart 78rpm single, and even other vocal tracks by Annie Ross and King Pleasure. CD3 mostly features material that focuses on the talents of Bobby Jaspar on flute – some under his own leadership, plus more with other artists and groups, including work with singer Helen Merrill, guitarist Rene Thomas, and trombonist JJ Johnson. 75 tracks in all – and a booklet of notes!

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1971 – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Philips/Water, 1971. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
A rare British recording from Gilberto Gil – sung completely in English, and recorded while living in London, in political exile along with Caetano Veloso! The album's somewhat similar to Veloso's famous London album from 1971 – certainly in structure, as the backings are relatively stripped-down, and mostly feature acoustic guitar, bass, and percussion, alongside Gil's English lyrics. But the record's somewhat different too – in that it's got a brighter, more redemptive feel – almost an indication that Gilberto's time abroad hadn't been such a terrible thing – especially given that the record is a new creative departure in his music! The English lyrics are really a treat – and are sometimes sung as a broken strand of familiar words, trying to work themselves together into a fragile tapestry of emotion – sometimes succeeding, sometimes not – but always beautiful, and always filled with the emotion of his experiences in exile! Titles include "Volkswagen Blues", "The Three Mushrooms", "Babylon", "Nega (Photograph Blues)", and "Mamma" – plus 3 bonus cuts: "Can't Find My Way Home", "Up From The Skies", and a great version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". US version also features great sound and new liner notes by Peter Margasak! CD

Merle HaggardPortrait Of Merle Haggard/Keep Movin' On ... CD
BGO/Capitol (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A pair of Capitol Records killers from Merle Haggard – back to back on a single CD! First up is A Portrait Of Merle Haggard – a 1969 album that shows just how much he'd grown and matured during his 60s years at Capitol Records – and almost a celebration of all that time, given how many great songs Merle manages to put inside the record! The set begins with the sublime "Working Man's Blues" – a tune that's got jazzier currents than Hag ever had a few years back, but which also delivers a very pointed message to the bulk of his audience – and creates a new anthem for Merle in the process. The record then progresses with a host of other fantastic tracks, half originals by Haggard, and all showing the many moods of the maturing singer – "What's Wrong With Stayin Home", "Silver Wings", "I Die Ten Thousand Times A Day", "I Came Close To Living Alone", "Who Do I Know In Dallas", and a great version of "She Still Thinks I Care". Keep Movin On is a mid 70s effort from Merle Haggard, and one that shows just how much he continued to bring his best to his work for Capitol Records – not just in his vocals, but in his songwriting too – as the album features almost all original material by Haggard! The mood nicely varies, and Hag hits some of those maturing masculine modes that were coming in with some of his contemporaries – blending "stay at home with the wife" sort of songs with others that echo more of the hellraising and sadness of younger years – all as a beautiful testament to his genius! Titles include "Movin' On", "Life's Like Poetry", "September In Miami", "Here In Frisco", "Always Wanting You", "Kentucky Gambler", "A Man's Gotta Give Up A Lot", "I've Got A Yearning", and "These Memories We're Making Tonight".

Joe HarriottSouthern Horizons ... LP
Jazzland/Down At Dawn (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Excellent! This record is one of the lost chapters in the career of the great British alto player Joe Harriott. The session was recorded before Joe's experimental "Abstract" release, and way before his "Indo Jazz Fusions" experiments – but it's still an excellent session of off-kilter bop that shows what a keen talent Joe was on the alto. He's playing here in the company of the great Shake Keane on trumpet – another fellow West Indian expatriate who was living in London – along with Coleridge Goode on bass, Harry South on piano, and Bobby Orr on drums – plus some bonus from Frank Holder on a few tracks, which sound mighty nice. The session was probably released in the UK, but this US issue is the only time we ever seem to see it – and it's not a record that shows up often. Tracks include "Liggin", "Caravan", "Senor Blues", "Count Twelve", and "Southern Horizons". LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy LeeBlack Coffee (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Decca/MCA (Japan), 1953/1956. Used ... $13.99
A pivotal album in the career of Peggy Lee, and one that marked her turning from a singer of pop and swing material, to a sensitive interpreter of jazz material. The album's one of the best-ever by Peggy, and features the kind of material that's not easy to find amidst the bulk of her pop-oriented work – a moving set of ballads and torchy numbers, recorded in small-combo fashion, in a style that's similar to some of Chris Connor's later Bethlehem work. The combo includes Cootie Chesterfield on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Max Wayne on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. A real treasure – with titles like "A Woman Alone With The Blues", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Easy Living", and "Black Coffee". This reissue features all 12 tracks from the full-length LP. CD

✨✧ Ramsey LewisFunky Serenity/Golden Hits/Solar Wind/Sun Goddess ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A quadruple-header from Ramsey Lewis – four albums from his great 70s electric period on Columbia Records! First up is Funky Serenity – sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings adds in some very nice percussion with his drum work, and Cleveland Eaton's on funky bass, giving the set a strong bottom groove. Features the sublime sample cut "My Love For You", a great version of "Knights In White Satin" that's done with a weird spacey groove, plus the tracks "Kufany Mapenzi (Making Love)", "Serene Funk", "What It Is!", and "Dreams". Golden Hits isn't a "best of", but instead has Ramsey and his funky mid 70s trio with Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton revisiting some of his best loved material from the Cadet years, but with the groovy Rhodes and wah wah sound that we dig so much about his CBS recordings. Unlike some of the other records from this period, the group's nice and stripped down, just the electric piano, bass and drums, so the groove's nice and wide open, Ramsey and company popping along with the sanctified soulful vibe of his 60s work, but updating their sound with some nice electric touches. 9 numbers in all: "Hang On Sloopy", "Blues For The Night Owl", "Hi-Heel Sneakers", "Carmen", "Delilah", "Wade In The Water", "Slippin' Into Darkness", "Somethin' You Got", and "The In Crowd". Solar Wind was cut smack dab in the middle of Ramsey's glory days at Columbia Records – with great production help and work on bass from the mighty Cleveland Eaton! The style is nice and lean, with just some occasional fuller touches – and Ramsey plays plenty of Fender Rhodes, in addition to bits of Arp and moog too – in a setting that's mostly trio, with a few guest players stepping into the mix from track to track! There's a nice degree of fuzz at points, thanks to added help from Steve Cropper – and titles include a great funky version of "Summer Breeze", plus "Solar Wind", "Come Down In Time", "Love for A Day", "Hummingbird", "Jamaican Marketplace", and "Sweet & Tender You". Sun Goddess is one of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the drummer in Ramsey's trio before starting his own group – and the shared relationship both artists had with producer Charles Stepney! The three were all key parts of the late 60s sound at Chess Records – but here, they've brought the same soulful energy to Columbia – working in a wider, more mature groove for the 70s – one that has Lewis' wicked Fender Rhodes lines stretching out strongly over tight, compressed, funky lines from EWF! The centerpiece of the set is the massive 7 minute "Sun Goddess", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Living For The City", "Gemini Rising", and "Jungle Strut". Funky, electric, and sublimely wonderful all the way through! CD

✨✧ VariousChicago Slickers Vol 2 – 1948 to 1953 ... LP
Nighthawk, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the Chicago blues underground – rare tracks pulled from a time before labels like Chess and Vee Jay handled most of the big artists, and talents were spread between a handful of much smaller indies! The music here marks that key Chicago transition from rural to urban – and especially showcases the rise of the electric guitar in the music – often mixed with some heavy lines on piano or harmonica, and recorded in a relatively spare, stripped-down mode – without some of the fuller arrangements that were being added to some of the LA blues recordings of the postwar years. Titles include "Skinny Woman" and "Floyd's Blue" by Floyd Jones, "Blue Baby" by Little Walter, "Let Me Ride Your Mule" and "My Baby Walked Out" by Man Young, "Drinking Woman" by John Brim, "Living In The White House" by Johnny Shines, "I Had A Dream" by Lazy Bill, "No More Love" and "Nervous Wreck" by Willie Nix, "Goin Down The Line" by Grace Brim, and "My Sweet Lovin Woman" by Robert Nighthawk.

An excellent set of recordings from a unique moment for the Xanadu Records label – an imprint that was carrying the torch of the Prestige label style well into the 70s – also run by that label's old head, Don Schlitten! The tracks here were all recorded live in Dakar – by a tight quintet that features some of the best Xanadu players at the time – both Al Cohn and Billy Mitchell on tenor, plus Dolo Coker on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Frank Butler on drums. Mitchell is especially wonderful – an excellent soloist who was often lost in larger groups throughout his career, but who really got the chance to shine in the bigger, more open space of the small group sides. Both he and Cohn blow at some of their best levels for the performances – and titles include "Night Flight To Dakar", "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying", "Blues Up & Down", "Sweet Senegelese Brown", "Robbins Nest", "Blues In The Closet", "Easy Living", and "The King".

✨✧ Alex ChiltonFree Again – The 1970 Sessions ... LP
Ardent/Omnivore, 1970. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The legendary 1970 recordings Alex Chilton made at Ardent Studios – recorded in a brief moment after the bust up of the Box Tops and before the debut of Big Star – and a truly powerful precursor to that most iconic of soulful Memphis rock acts! For the longest time, the 1970 sessions were something of a rock & roll holy grail – having been oft-discussed, if rarely heard, by Chilton and Big Star diehards. In the mid 90s, Ardent Records finally released the heart of this collection as 1970 – and here it's done up with even more love and respect by Omnivore, which over the course of just a handful of releases has become one of the very best deep digging reissuers of great, should-be classic soul & rock treasures. The vibe swings from stripped down, soulful rock that sometimes flirts with country rock – those songs featuring gruff, bluesy vocals from Chilton that belie his actual youth, just as greatly as his vox for The Box Tops – to gentler soul pop numbers that truly prefigure the Big Star sound to come. 12 tracks on the vinyl version – plus great liner notes by Bob Mehr, a living encyclopedia of Memphis musical knowledge. Includes "Free Again (Original Mono Mix)", "Come On Honey", "Something Deep Inside", "I Can Dig It", "The EMI Song (Smile For Me)", "Every Day As We Grow Closer/Funky National", "I Wish I Could Meet Elvis", "All We Ever Got From Them Was Pain", "All I Really Want Is Money", "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and more.

John MayallMoving On ... LP
Polydor, 1972. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Bill Cosby introduces this hip little live set from the John Mayall group – which is fitting, as there's definitely a bit of an LA groove on the set! Mayall's still in very bluesy territory, but he also gets some great soul jazz support too – from players who include Charles Owens on flute and soprano sax, Ernie Watts on tenor, and even the great Fred Jackson on baritone! Keef Hartley adds in some mighty heavy drums, but the group's further expanded by even more American players too – including Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Freddie Robinson on guitar – both players who definitely leave their mark on the set. There's some great electric piano too – and titles include the classic "Keep Our Country Green" – plus "Christmas 71", "Things Go Wrong", "Do It", "Moving On", "Red Sky", "Reasons", "High Pressure Living", and "Worried Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a rip on the top left corner, light surface wear, and a cut corner.)

Nolan StruckI Got Bills To Pay ... LP
Retta's Records, 1985. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A bluesy update on the older style of Nolan Struck – a singer with more of a pedigree in soul, but who'd made a move to a more down-home style by the time of this set. Production is a bit modern, but still pretty strong – and there's a nice focus on Nolan's vocals, which have a well-crafted and compelling feel. Instrumentation is relatively spare overall – leaving Struck out front in the mix – and titles include "She's A Miracle Woman", "Let Me Be Your Man", "Cost Of Living", and a version of "The Love You Save", by Joe Tex.

✨✧ Alabama State Troupers (Don Nix/Furry Lewis)Alabama State Troupers Road Show ... LP
Elektra, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary live set from a short-lived, but equally legendary group – a really unique assemblage of talents that features core musicians from Muscle Shoals, mixed with lead vocals from Don Nix, Jeanie Greene, and the aging bluesman Furry Lewis – all brought together as a unit that really bridges sounds, generations, and styles! The work has plenty of echoes of Nix's own music, but the presence of Lewis and some of the backing players – as well as a gospel choir for backup – all reflects the deeper roots that inform Don's recordings, given much bigger focus here – at a level that blows away most contemporaries who were trying their own approach to blending rock and roots modes. Titles include "Brownsville", "I'm Black", "Amos Burke", "Mighty Time", "Yes I Do Understand", "Furry's Rap", "Iuka", "Joabim", and "Living In The Country". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, light staining along the bottom seam, and a small split on the top seam.)
