✨✧ Cannonball Adderley with Nancy Wilson & Lou RawlsIn Person ... CD
Capitol/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Almost everything soulful at Capitol Records in the mid 60s – packed together in one sweet little place! The set's a winner in a great line of Cannonball Adderley live dates from the time – produced by David Axelrod, and done with that great mix of angular, slightly electric groove the combo was virtually pioneering – thanks to help from Joe Zawinul on electric piano, and Nat Adderley on cornet! Cannon also plays some great soprano sax – an instrument that he was taking off beautifully with at the time – and sets fire to a few great tunes with the instrument. But as if that's not enough, Lou Rawls joins in on vocals on a few cuts, and Nancy Wilson comes in on a few more – and the album alternates singing with instrumentals in a really great way. Titles include two very nice extended tracks by Joe Zawinul – "Rumplestiltskin" and "The Scavenger", both of which are over 10 minutes long, and which have the group stretching out in a nice live vein – and other cuts include "The Scene", "Somewhere", "Sweet Emma", and "Zorba".

Nancy WilsonBroadway My Way ... LP
Capitol, 1963. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A great counterpart to Nancy Wilson's classic Hollywood My Way album for Capitol – and like that one, a classy set of tunes arranged and conducted by Jimmy Jones! The style is similar to Nancy's more pop-oriented work, with perhaps a bit more pause on the ballads to unlock their more sophisticated turns – and as usual with Wilson in this sort of setting, the material is really transformed by her presentation – taken way past its roots in popular shows of the time. Titles include "Loads Of Love", "My Ship", "Getting To Know You", "Tonight", "You Can Have Him", and "I Believe In You". LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy WilsonHollywood My Way ... LP
Capitol, 1963. Very Good ... $2.99
Nancy Wilson turns her wonderfully sophisticated vocal style towards a batch of hits from Hollywood films of the 40s, 50s, and 60s – arranged and conducted by Jimmy Jones, in that classy blend of jazz and soul that suited Wilson so well in the 60s! The style is really a cut above the usual – handled with great poise by Nancy throughout, but also done in a mode that's relaxed enough to get past some of the stodgier sounds of records like this. The mellower tunes are actually some of the best here – personal, reflective, and echoing the "Guess Who I Saw Today" sound of Wilson in the 60s. Titles include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Almost In Your Arms", "When Did You Leave Heaven?", "My Shining Hour", "Days Of Wine & Roses", and "Wild Is The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album

Nancy WilsonI've Never Been To Me ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Nancy Wilson hits hard on two different levels – some of the mellow, sophisticated numbers that made her mid 70s years so great – and a few more upbeat groovers that aim strongly for the clubs! The blend is carried off well here – thanks to production and arrangements from Gene Page and Garry Sherman – both of whom avoid any too-commercial modes and really help keep the album at a level that works perfect for Wilson's huge legacy in soul music! The sound often has that great Capitol Rare blend of class and soul – and titles include "Love Is Alive", "Flying High", "All By Myself", "Here It Comes", "Moments", "Changes", and "Nobody". LP, Vinyl record album

The sweet vocals of Nancy join the classic Cannonball quintet for a great set of soul jazz tunes that was one of Capitol's biggest selling jazz sides in the 60s! About half the cuts feature Nancy on vocals – on tunes like "Save Your Love For Me", "Never Will I Marry", "Happy Talk", and "The Masquerade Is Over" – and the other half feature Cannon's group playing instrumentally – on cuts like "Teaneck", "One Man's Dream", and "Never Say Yes".

✨✧ Nancy Wilson, Joe Henderson, Chick Corea, etcEchoes Of An Era 2 – The Concert ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not only a great follow-up to the first Echoes Of An Era session, but also a standout 80s performance from Nancy Wilson – quite possibly her best of the decade! The setting is nice and laidback – a live date with a core combo that features Joe Henderson on tenor, Chick Corea on piano, Stanley Clarke on acoustic bass, and Lenny White on drums – plus steller vocals from Wilson, who's really at home in the setting – stretching out beautifully on the long tracks, and coming into play with the soloists at a level that's quite different from her more polished studio records. Clarke's bass is a delight, too – a great reminder that his talents didn't always lie in the electric realm during the 80s – and Henderson, as you might guess, provides some soulful undercurrents that reallyg round the whole proceedings. Titles include "500 Miles High", "Round Midnight", "Rhythm A Ning", "My One & Only Love", "Them There Eyes", and "I Want To Be Happy". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1973. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An excellent lost album from Nancy – and one of her most original! The record takes the sophisticated soul vocals of her late 60s albums on Capitol, and twists them with a hip LA jazzy style arranged by Don Sebesky, and performed by The Crusaders and Arthur Adams. Great stuff, and with the tracks "Easy Evil", "Can I", "I Heard You Singing Your Song", "I Know I Love Him", "Don't Misunderstand", and "We Can Make It Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nancy WilsonNancy – Naturally ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great one from Nancy Wilson – a set that has the singer working with full arrangements from Billy May, who's got this surprisingly subtle approach at times that works really well with the soulful currents in Nancy's vocals! The approach is almost more like Oliver Nelson, especially with the bluesier currents that May brings into the horns at points – and the album scores equally well on the groovers and the more slinky numbers that are especially wonderful – almost an update of an earlier Dakota Staton mode, but a bit more hip – as we'd expect from Wilson! Titles include "Watch What Happens", "Smack Dab In The Middle", "I Wish I Didn't Love You So", "In The Dark", and "Ten Years Of Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

Killer 60s work from Nancy! Despite the "easy" in the title, this record's a perfect batch of pop soul tunes – arranged by Jimmy Jones with a breezy style that works perfectly for Nancy's voice. The record features her big hit "Face it Girl, It's Over", which was arranged by HB Barnum – plus some other great pop tracks like Jobim's "Wave" and "How Insensitive", and "Walk Away", "Make Me A Present Of You", and "The Look Of Love".

✨✧ Nancy WilsonLife, Love & Harmony ... LP
Capitol, 1979. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A killer from Nancy – very different than most of her earlier work, and proof that she was still growing as an artist on Capitol! The record's arranged and produced by Larry Farrow – who gives the session a jazz funk feel that brings Nancy into a whole mode, a smooth modern one that's kind a perfect fit for the rich character of her vocals – a much-needed update of the classy sound of her late 60s work, in territory that still shows that Wilson can hit this sort of groove better than anyone else! The standout cut is the massive "Sunshine" –a sparkling jazzy groover with a monster hook and some wonderful stepping arrangements – and other tracks include "You're The One Wrapped Up In The Comfort Of Your Love", "Heaven", "Here's To Us", and "Life, Love, & Harmony". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole and light wear.)

Ronnel BrightRonnel Bright Trio (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Universal/Sam Records (France), 1958. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by pianist Ronnell Bright – a player best known for his accompaniment behind famous vocalists, like Sarah Vaughan and Nancy Wilson! This rare date was cut in Paris – at a time when Bright was visiting the city with Vaughan – and it's a stripped-down trio date with a nicely relaxed feel – one that has Bright really opening up on the keys, in ways you don't always hear on his material with singers. Other players in the trio include Richard Davis on bass and Art Morgan on drums – and titles include "Johnnie Pate's Blues", "Sail Em", "Doxology", "Chasing Sarah", and "R&R Groove".

✨✧ Margie DayDawn Of A New Day/Experience Margie Day ... CD
RCA/Poker (UK), 1968/1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Two compelling albums from Margie Day – an under-remembered singer who worked for RCA at the end of the 60s! First up is Dawn Of A New Day – a set that has Margie working in a really unique approach to vocals – a bit jazzy at times, inflected with bluesy undercurrents at others, but often delivered with a sense of class and poise that's a bit like Nancy Wilson at Capitol – although quite different overall! Given that Margie's always apt to push the inflections on the tunes – working the notes heavily with very soulful expression – she really changes things up from the usual album of this type, and creates a nice sense of tension with the arrangements from Ray Ellis, Chuck Sagle, and Jimmy Wisner. Titles include "Am I Blue", "Walk Away", "As Time Goes By", "Much Too Long", "Ain't It The Truth", "Let's Do It", and "In Times Like These". Experience Margie Day is pretty groovy little set from Day – a record that's somewhere in a space between jazz and soul vocals, and put together with some really unique inflections overall! There's a surprisingly sophisticated quality to the music – almost like some of Marlena Shaw's late 60s music, but a bit less righteous overall – filled with adult themes, and featuring a track list that includes a fair bit of unfamiliar numbers that really keep things fresh. Arrangements are by Ray Ellis, Art Beck, and Garry Illingworth – the latter of whom wrote some of the best tracks on the set – and titles include "What Does He Think", "If The Laugh-In Don't Kill Me", "I Keep It Hid", "Time Doesn't Matter Anymore", "Ever Livin Lovin Program Plan", "Rainbow People", "I Thought About You", "Don't Pay Them No Mind", "Let's Start All Over Again", "Maybe You'll Be There", and "Wine In The Wind".

The tracks are mostly standards and pop tunes – done by Aretha in a sophisticated jazzy style that reminds us of early 60s work by Dinah Washington or Nancy Wilson. Titles include "By Myself", "My Guy", "Once In A Lifetime", and "Unforgettable". LP, Vinyl record album

A lost Ohio soul treasure – the initial effort by a singer with a hell of a voice, but one who languished in obscurity after the poor response to this debut LP! Barbara Howard really knocks it out of the park here – singing like a deep soul diva with a hell of a lot of power and focus – but also moving effortlessly through material from a variety of modes, often given a bit of a jazzy twist in the backings – almost as if Howard's trying to be the southern soul answer to Nancy Wilson on Capitol Records! There's maybe a Spanky Wilson vibe to the whole thing – with a similar punch in the arrangements – and titles include "The Man Above", "Save Your Love For Me", "Light My Fire", "My Song", "I Need You", "Welcome Home", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "For Once In My Life".

One of Motown's stranger acts during the late 60s, and a classy singer that was perhaps a bit too classy to sound soulful with the Motown style of production. In a way, a record like this appears to be Motown's attempt to cash in on the Nancy Wilson bag. Might work, too, if Barb's voice was a bit more interesting. Tracks include "My World Is Empty Without You", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Here I Am Baby", and "Fancy Passes". LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena ShawOut Of Different Bags ... LP
Cadet, 1967. Very Good- ... $11.99
Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack! The record's a mix of jazzy vocal numbers and heavier soul tunes – arranged by Richard Evans with a hiply swinging sound that bridges modes nicely – and which offers a deeper, more sophisticated take on the kind of territory explored by Nancy Wilson on Capitol during the 60s. Tunes are a real mix of material, but all transformed nicely in this setting – so that standout session tunes like "Ahmad's Blues", "I've Gotten Over You", and "Nothing But Tears" sit very nicely next to more familiar numbers like "Matchmaker Matchmaker", "Alone Together", and "The Eyes Of Love". Also includes a great reading of "Somewhere In The Night"! LP, Vinyl record album

Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... CD
Cadet, 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, you'll find an undercurrent of politics, feminism, and social commentary delivered with surprising intensity. Marlena Shaw's voice is generally sweet, but she's set up in some extremely powerful arrangements by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney that recast even the simplest phrase into a whole new setting of strength and pride – and Bobby Miller of Dells fame also helped make the record what it is, and helped write some of the best songs on the record. The set includes Marlena's classic original reading of "Woman Of The Ghetto", which has been sampled by just about everyone, plus "California Soul", which has a nice hard break, and the tunes "Liberation Conversation", "Where Can I Go?", and the original version of "Go Away Little Boy" – as sweet a statement of womanhood if there ever was one!

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed MuhammadJazz Is Dead ... CD
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Maybe the most fantastic record to date from the hands of Adrian Younge – a project done in collaboration with Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and one that features guest appearances from some of the musical giants who first inspired Dusty Groove many years Back! The core energy of the set comes from Younge and Muhammad – who are in a similar funky soul groove as their previous Midnight Hour recording serving up a blend of jazz and soul in a mode that clearly draws a lot of 70s inspiration, but which also has this very fresh, contemporary energy too. Yet there's also a strong difference here once each of the guests step into the mix – a stellar lineup that features alto from Gary Bartz, Fender Rhodes from Marcos Valle and Joao Donato, flute from Brian Jackson, drums from Ivan Mamao Conti, and Hammond B3 from the great Doug Carn – all players who really up the jazz ante for the record, and make the whole thing sound even deeper than most of Younge's other recordings. Titles include "Distant Mode", "Nancy Wilson, "Down Deep", "Apocaliptico", "Jazz Is Dead", "Hey Lover", "Nao Saia Da Praca", and "Conexao". CD

A tremendous return to form for the great Brian Jackson – an artist that most folks know for his legendary 70s work with Gil Scott-Heron, but one who's kept on making great music for years after Gil departed our planet! Here, Jackson's the lead talent on Fender Rhodes, flute, and other instruments – working alongside core funky backdrops from Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad – in a mode that follows up the spirit of their other releases in the Jazz Is Dead series, but with a vibe that's darker and moodier overall! There's a great edge going on here – and the bassline are especially heavy at times, which seems to make Jackson push even stronger than he might – filling up all the spaces with beautiful sounds that show the musician at his jazziest. Titles include "Mars Walk", "Nancy Wilson", "Young Muhammad", "Guality", "Bain De Minuit", "Ethiopian Sunshower", and "Under The Bridge". CD

Blue Note (Japan), 1970s. Used ... $26.99
DJ Muro's got plenty cooking in his sweet Soul Kitchen – a killer batch of rare grooves from the vaults of Blue Note and Capitol Records – all mixed together in one massive, all-official collection! The set's a perfect example of why we trust Muro with grooves more than just about anyone else – because even in familiar territory, he finds a way of unlocking more in the tracks than we might have expected – and given the scope of this set, he's also stepping out into plenty of unfamiliar territory too! The mix is very soul-based – and there's loads of warm, jazzy, modern soul numbers that beautifully revive a Capitol Rare spirit – mixed carefully by Muro in ways that don't break down the tunes that much, but really manage to get to their essence quickly. Titles include "Inside Your Love" by Leon Ware, "Sunshine" by Nancy Wilson, "Koko & Lee Roe" by Gene Harris, "Can't Hide Love" by Carmen McRae, "I've Got You On My Mind" by Jorge Dalto, "Feel Like Makin Love" by Shirley Bassey, "Stop Running Away From Love" by Bobby Lyle, "Loving You Gets Better With Time" by Lea Roberts, "Let Me Love You Where It Hurts" by Future Flight, "Reaching For The Sky" by Peabo Bryson, "With You" by Perry & Sanlin, and "Lover To Lover" by Maxi.
