✨✧ MaxwellEmbrya ... CD
Columbia, 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second album by smooth soul singer Maxwell – and every bit as great as the first! Although the vibe is modern, the sound is quite classic – with lush warm arrangements that perfectly wrap up Maxwell's sweet and soulful vocals. The record picks up a tradition that was left off by 70s stars like Leon Ware, Marvin Gaye, or Leroy Hutson – and it's a masterpiece of jazzy soul that almost restores our faith in major labels. Like the first effort, this one was written and produced by Musze – and also like that one, it's a beautiful album all the way through, with a very unified sound that most other soul artists could only dream of! Titles include "I'm You, You Are Me, and We Are You", "Everwanting: To Want You To Want", "Gravity: Pushing To Pull", "Submerge: Til We Become The Sun", "Arroz Con Polly", "Drowndeep: Hula", and "Matrimony: Maybe You".

✨✧ MaxwellMaxwell's Urban Hang Suite ... CD
Columbia, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of modern soul – a smooth seductive album that fits perfectly with an older mellow groove, but which also sparkles with the best recent efforts of the past decade. Maxwell's got a wonderful vocal style – reminding us a bit of classic Isley Brothers, Leon Ware, or O'Jays in a ballad mode – and it sits perfectly amidst warm jazzy arrangements by Musze, filled with all the subtle instrumental touches (keyboards, sax, and guitar) you'd find on a late album by Marvin Gaye, or some of the slow jams by the Isleys. The vibe is warm and acoustic, and the record's a wonderful return to a classic mellow midtempo soul style – and did quite well upon its initial release. Also interesting was the fact that the record was pressed up heavily on vinyl – something that was rare for a mainstream soul album at the time, and which was particularly ubiquitous in our hometown of Chicago, where DJs on the steppers scene were snatching up the record like hotcakes! Includes the titles "Ascension", "Whenever Wherever Whatever", "Lonely's The Only Company (parts 1 & 2)", "Reunion", and "Suitelady (The Proposal Jam)" – but the whole thing's great! CD

✨✧ MaxwellNow ... CD
Columbia, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maxwell's third album, and he just keeps getting better. His songwriting skills have become more finely honed, and the arrangements and general feel still maintain his warm, retro modern vibe. We never tire of his soulful vocals, and music that references classics like the Isleys, Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware or Leroy Hutson without ever having to resort to aping them or sampling their hooks. 12 tracks, including "Getting To Know Ya", "Lifetime", "Changed", "For Lovers Only", "Temporary Nite", "Silently", "Symptom Unkown" and "Now/At The Party".

BeatlesAbbey Road (2CD anniversary edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Apple, 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.99
Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King". This very cool 2CD version features a new mix by Giles Martin and Sam Okell – and a huge amount of bonus alternate tracks – including "Come Together (take 5)", "Something (studio demo)", "Oh Darling (take 4)", "Maxwell's Silver Hammer (take 12)", "Golden Slumbers/Carry The Weight (takes 1, 2, & 3)", "Sun King (take 20", "I Want You (Trident recording session & reduction mix)", "Octopus' Garden (take 9", "Because (take 1 inst)", and "Mean Mr Mustard (take 20)".

Idle HandsSolid Moments ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
There's nothing idle about these hands – as the group have a tightness that makes you think they've been together for years – which is maybe partly the case, as many of the artists are part of the great and ever-growing legacy of the Posi-Tone label! And while the company has given us great albums with single artists in the lead over the years, they've maybe been hitting even more strongly of late with groups of this nature – almost an all-leader effort, but in which all players come together with great sympathy for each other – in a lineup that features Will Bernard on guitar, Behn Gillece on vibes, Sam Dillon on tenor sax, Art Hirahara on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, and Donald Edwards drums. The album's overflowing with fresh, original material – and titles include "Barreling Through", "Silver Bullet", "Maxwell Street", "Ashes", "Sock's House", "Motion", and "Event Horizon " – plus nice takes of Stevie Wonder's "You And I" and Freddie Hubbard's "Theme For Kareem".

BB KingLucille ... CD
ABC/Traffic, 1968. Used ... $4.99
One of the first records to feature BB King's famous guitar, Lucille, in the spotlight – an instrument he'd played for years, but which took on legendary status over the decades! The guitar's handled perfectly here by King – with a tone that still holds on to all the gritty edges of his early years, but which is also captured beautifully in the studio with top-shelf production – loud and clear, but never as commercial as on later records. The whole thing's wonderfully free of hoke – the material that made King a much-deserved star in the 60s – and the record features backing from Maxwell Davis on Hammond and Lloyd Glenn on piano. Titles include "Watch Yourself", "Lucille", "I Need Your Love", "Country Girl", and "You Move Me So". CD

Raphael SaadiqInstant Vintage ... LP
Universal/Get On Down, 2002. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99 31.98
A tough title to live up to – but Raphael makes it happen! The album's as wonderful as you might think – all the deeply soulful styles Saadiq worked out with Tony Toni Tone, taken back through a historical range of soul music – firmly planted in a legacy that begins with Stevie Wonder, runs through Maxwell and D'Angelo, and which points the way towards the future of urban soul. Backings are very much in the beats-n-keyboards mode, but Raphael works out such a wide range of moods and modes that the album avoids any of the shortcomings of other albums in such a style. Includes guest performances by Angie Stone, Leslie Wilson, T-Boz, Calvin Richardson, and D'Angelo – and titles that include "Doing What I Can", "Be Here", "Still Pay", "You're The One That I Like", "Excuse Me", "Tick Tock", "People", "Faithful", "Make My Day", "Blind Man", "Different Times", "What's Life Like", and "Skyy, Can You Feel Me".

Zoot Sims, Phil Woods, and OthersJazz Mission To Moscow ... LP
Colpix, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Jazz from the heart of the cold war – not actually recorded in Moscow, but featuring a bunch of hip players on their return from a tour of the Soviet Union – a historic moment in which west met east, with some groovy jazz in the offing! Apart from the tenor of Zoot Sims and alto of Phil Woods, the record also features flute and alto from Jerry Dodgion, trombone from Willie Dennis, trumpets from Markie Markowitz and Jimmy Maxwell, and piano from Eddie Costa – and the set features arrangements from Al Cohn on tracks that hit the 5 minute range – tight at the top, with breakaway solos, as you might hear during some of the Cohn/Sims sides for RCA during the 50s! Titles include "Let's Dance", "Mission To Moscow", "The Sochi Boatman", and the obligatory "Russian Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good ... $5.99
If a record could be worth it for the cover alone, this one's definitely worth it for its beautiful image of Chicago's Maxwell Street from the late 50s – a brief note of hometown pride from then-Chicago Mercury Records! Record features some nice jazz and vocal tracks too – with work by Max Roach & Clifford Brown, Cannonball Adderley, Gerry Mulligan, The Blue Stars, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, and others.

✨✧ VariousGreat R&B Instrumentals ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The R&B generation gave us plenty of raw soul singers and pre-soul vocal groups – but that special time in music was also a moment when instrumental tracks could still burn brightly too – when a tenor sax or searing guitar line could have every bit as much power as the human voice! These cuts are all pulled from those magical years of the 50s – and come from a variety of important indie labels of the time – Cash, Specialty, Atlantic, Imperial, and others – collected together here in a wonderful set that really illustrates the mighty power of a rock-solid instrumental single! Some of these cuts were hits, but they're mixed with other less-remembered gems too – in a well-done package with track-by-track notes, and the kind of sound quality that goes way past the dodgier sets on the market. Titles include "Jivin Around (parts 1 & 2)" by The Ernie Freeman Combo, "Hard Grind" by Wild Jimmy Spruill, "Keep Getting Up" by Larry Dale, "Boppin At The Hop" by Lee Allen, "The Hunch" by Bobby Peterson Quintet, "Whot's Happening" by The Mar-Keys, "T-Town Twist" by Roy Milton & His Solid Senders, "Boogie Cocktails" by Maxwell Davies, "All Night Long" by Joe Houston, "Southbound Special" by Lloyd Glenn, "Blues After Hours" by Pee Wee Crayton, and "Big Guitar" by Irving Ashby.

✨✧ Leon BridgesGood Thing (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Columbia, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soaring set from Leon Bridges – a full length second album that's every bit as classic as his debut, but in a completely different way! Where Coming Home was maybe Leon's answer to the generation of Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke, Good Thing is more of a nod to the era of Maxwell and D'Angelo – but, as before, coming across with a vibe that's completely Bridges' own – this ebullient, bubblingly soulful quality that's completely sublime – and which has Leon's voice fitting perfectly with the mellow grooving beats, keyboards, and guitar. The singer's voice is maybe even better than before – sure to win over an even new wave of ears – and titles include "If It Feels Good Then It Must Be", "Bet Ain't Worth The Hand", "Bad Bad News", "Shy", "Beyond", "Forgive You", "Lions", "You Don't Know", and "Georgia To Texas". LP, Vinyl record album
