✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsMy Mama Pinned A Rose On Me ... LP
Pablo, 1978. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Mary Lou Williams is dipping far back into her roots here – working in a very bluesy batch of styles, with only accompaniment from Buster Williams on bass to back her up! The tracks are all relatively shortish, and done in styles that stretch back to older modes of 20s and 30s jazz piano – but as usual, Williams has a hip edge in her playing, and brings modernist undercurrents into play where you might least expect. Cynthia Tyson sings on 2 tracks in the set – and titles include "JBs Waltz", "The Blues", "NG Blues", "Prism", "No Title Blues", "My Mama Pinned A Rose On Me", "Baby Bear Boogie", and "Dirge Blues".

Mary/Folkways, 1974. Used ... $8.99
An excellent album by Mary Lou Williams – a set recorded during the 70s period when she was mixing in a bit of funk with her jazz! The sound here is wonderful – quite different than other work you might know from Williams, and much more in the sort of groove you'd expect from Junior Mance, Ray Bryant, Ramsey Lewis, or other soul jazz-oriented pianists! Williams plays acoustic piano in a very hip trio with Mickey Roker on drums and Bob Cranshaw on electric bass – the latter of whom brings in this well-rounded, soul-drenched tone that's a lot like the bass work on some of Monty Alexander's own best albums from the 70s. And Williams herself is totally great too – playing with some slightly exotic tones at points, and with a really in-the-pocket groove at others. Funky tracks include "Intermission" and "Rosa Mae" – and other titles include "Ghost Of Love", "Medi II", "Zoning Fungus", and a great version of Dizzy Gillespie's "Olinga". CD also features 2 previously unreleased tracks – "Syl-O-Gism" and an alternate of "Gloria". CD

✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsMary Lou Williams (Black Christ Of The Andes) ... CD
Mary, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album – and one of the best records you'll ever find by Mary Lou Williams! The record's a mixture of jazz and spiritual themes, and it features Mary Lou's piano set in some super-hip jazz arrangements that include players like Grant Green, Budd Johnson, Larry Gales, Melba Liston, Ben Tucker, and Percy Heath. The bass and piano work is amazing, and many tracks have a dark groove that's very subtle, but very compelling. About half the tunes feature hip choral vocalizing – in the mode of some of the Donald Byrd or Max Roach albums from the same time – mostly handled by the group of Howard Roberts. Includes the classic groover "A Grand Nite For Swinging", plus "A Fungus Amongus", "Anima Christi", "Miss DD", "The Devil", "It Ain't Necessarily So", and "My Blue Heaven". Great stuff all around – and even better than we're describing it! This CD issue features the original Mary Records cover art – different than the Saba/MPS or later Smithsonian CD versions. CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

VariousHunk Of Heaven – Volume 4 Of The Collectable Jazzman Sevens Series ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $8.99
Proof that there's few labels better at digging up an interesting groove than the mighty Jazzman imprint – home to a consistently great series of reissue 45s over the past 10 years or so! The Jazzman groove goes way beyond the standard deep funk line – into a realm of groovy styles that includes soundtrack bits, primitive electronics, female jazz vocals, socking 60s soul, and a whole lot more – all served up perfectly in this wonderful little set! And as with other Jazzman volumes, it's not just the music that makes the set great, but the way it's put together – as Gerald Jazzman manages to sort tunes and lay them out one by one in a style that really changes up the groove – pushing our expectations with each new number, and really keeping things fresh throughout! This one's way way way more than just a pile of rare funk tracks – a truly loving document of one label's commitment to the depth of music in all its forms – served up over a batch of 12 rare tunes! Titles include "Let's Go" by James Reese & The Progressions, "Baby True" by Gettysbyrg Address, "Hunk Of Heaven" by Lemuria, "Pretty Bird" by Terea, "Transfert 2002" by Le Groupe X, "Scherzi Pesanti" by Remigio Ducros, "One" by Mary Lou Williams, "Bobby's Mood" by Soul Toronadoes, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, and "Baltimore Oriole (King version)" by Lorez Alexandria.

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieMatrix – The Perception Sessions (The Real Thing/Portrait Of Jenny/Giants) ... CD
Perception/Castle (UK), 1970/1971. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent funk from Dizzy Gillespie – featuring all 3 of his albums for the legendary Perception label! The Real Thing is an amazing mix of funky jazz, cool rhythms, and some nice Latin-tinged grooves – and it's a stunning representation of the way that Dizzy kept on growing as a musician, long after his bebop years were over. James Moody sits in with some very funky tenor, and Mike Longo is on piano. Tracks include "N'Bani", "Matrix", "Soul Kiss", "Ding A Ling", and "Alligator" – all short, hard, and funky! Next up is Portrait Of Jenny, which has a cool electric feel that you don't really associate with Diz. The whole album has a sly sweet funky sound that's part CTI/part Latin-tinged Dizzy – and the real strength is the great Mike Longo, who plays some amazing stretched out piano lines, which work perfectly with the basslines on the record as a foil for Dizzy's sparkling trumpet solos. The album's got 4 long cuts – including the excellent "Me N Them", plus "Olinga" and "Diddy Wa Diddy". The last set is Giants – a live recording that features Dizzy with Mary Lou Williams and Bobby Hackett, in a pretty mellow, pretty straight setting that shows that Diz could still play straight jazz when he wanted to. Titles include "Love For Sale", "Caravan", "My Man", and "Birks Works". 2 CDs, with 21 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Madlib & OthersMind Fusion Vol 2 – Mixed By Madlib ... CD
Mind Fusion/Madlib Invazion, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Madlib takes his all inclusive approach to funk and applies to a stellar mix set – The second volume of his Mind Fusion series – previously available only in Japan! Mind Fusion Vol 1 mixed a heavily Stones Throw weighted batch of hip hop tunes, but for Volume 2 'Lib takes a much more liberal soul and funk tack – working in deep soul, jazz and Latin work from the 70s, with lots of groovy surprises! The set weaves in and out of tracks that include "Starting Again" by Brian Auger, "Sabbat" by Cortex, "Back To The Projects", "Pale Blue" by Mary Lou Williams, "Feels So Good" by George Duke, "Before The Dawn" by Patrice Rushen, "Marco Fusion" by Marcos Valle, "Funky From The 70s" by Duke Ellington and lots more!

VariousP&P Disco (180 gram pressing) ... LP
P&P/Demon (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
A very very hip batch of tracks from the mighty P&P Records label – one of the coolest, wildest, funkiest imprints on the New York scene at the end of the 70s! P&P wasn't just disco, wasn't just club – but instead this amazing hybrid of so many different styles – at a level that helped find a place in the 12" universe for older funky 45 bands, and laid the groundwork for lots of experiments to come in both hip hop and house! Titles include "Turn Up Your Radio" by Kessler, "Got To Get Your Love" by Clyde Alexander & Sanction, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson Group, "Get Down" by Rudy Stewart, "Take Me I'm Yours" by Mary Clark, "Stay Away" by Louise Murray, "Ain't It Time" by Queen Yahna, "New York's Movin" by Ahzz, "Pound For Pound" by Le'o Roy, "Flying High (part 2)" by Cloud One, "Spank Me" by Bobby Mann, and "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Me" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra with Margo Williams.
