Ben WebsterDid You Call? ... LP
Nessa, 1972. Very Good ... $8.99
Excellent late 70s issue of a date from a few years earlier, of Ben playing with a pickup European rhythm section. The intimate setting and responsive younger players cast Webster's warm tenor in a great light, and his playing at this point was continuing to develop, with a nice burnished mellowness that never took off the gruff edginess that we love so much in his playing & tone. Half originals, and half standards, including "Barcelona Shout", "Don't Blame Me", "The Man I Love"and the title track. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & white label pressing.)

✨✧ Charles TylerSaga Of The Outlaws ... CD
Nessa, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous 70s album from Charles Tyler – one recorded with a rich, raw tone that's simply mindblowing! Tyler here has all of the deep soul we first came to love during his ESP years, but also a sound that's a bit more focused too – one that's extremely powerful, and boldly righteous – not exactly spiritual jazz, but also not loft jazz either. The sound is wonderful – Tyler's sharp-edged alto out front, in a group with trumpeter Earl Cross – a player who's a really great match in spirit and tone. Other group members include Steve Reid on drums, and bassist Ronnie Boykins and John Ore – players who each play in a different channel of the record! The set is billed as "a polyphonic sonic drama performed live by the Charles Tyler Ensemble" – which is a wonderful summation of the music. CD

Tenorio JrEmbalo ... CD
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A set that's maybe one of the greatest bossa jazz albums of all time – and a fantastic homegrown Brazilian effort that's quite different from the more commercial American bossa albums of the 60s! Tenorio Jr isn't just a hell of a pianist, he's a great writer and arranger too – one who's got an amazing ear for color and tone, balanced out with some completely sublime grooves – not smooth coffee shop bossa nova, but instead the harder sort of rhythms that were cooked up by the best combos in Brazil! The tunes are as warm and soulful as they are tight and angular – a perfect summation of the bossa jazz idiom at its truest expression – and the writing is fantastic throughout, with original songs that really provide a fresh change from some of the too-played hits of the generation. Instrumentation includes trombone from Raul De Souza, drums from Milton Banana, tenor from Meirelles, and alto sax from Paulo Moura – on titles that include the classic groover "Nebulosa", plus the tracks "Clouds", "Nectar", "Embalo", and "Estou Nessa Agora". A delight through and through – and one we never tire of! CD

Vanessa RubinDream Is You – Vanessa Rubin Sings Tadd Dameron ... CD
Nibur, 2019. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the best albums in years from jazz singer Vanessa Rubin – a very hip set dedicated to the music of Tadd Dameron, which makes for a collection of tunes that go way past the usual! Plus, in addition to a great set of songs, the album also features direction from Cecil Bridgewater – and arrangements by Jimmy Heath, Bobby Watson, Frank Foster, and Benny Golson – really giving things a soulful swing that's just right for Vanessa's vocals! The whole thing's got all the best charm of her early work, but maybe an even hipper edge – and players include Eddie Allen on trumpet, Clifton Anderson on trombone, Patience Higgins on tenor, Bruce Williams on alto, John Cowherd on piano, and Carl Allen on drums. Many tracks are nice along, with room enough for instrumental solos too – and titles include "Kitchenette Across The Hall", "Ladybird", "Whatever Possessed Me", "I Think I'll Go Away", "Weekend", "On A Misty Night", and "Good Bait".

Lulu GainsbourgFrom Gainsbourg To Lulu ... LP
Universal (France), 2011. Near Mint- 2LP ... $11.99
A new generation of the Gainsbourg family line comes into the musical fold – with results that are surprisingly nice! Lulu's an offspring of Serge, of a generation past Charlotte Gainsbourg – but he's still equally well-suited to pay tribute to his pop – as you'll hear in this reworking of famous tunes from the songbook of the great one! Lulu Gainsbourg enlists a host of famous guests on the outing – including Rufus Wainwright, Marianne Faithfull, Shane McGowan, Iggy Pop, Ayo, and others – and highlights include Scarlett Johansson joining Lulu on a remake of "Bonnie & Clyde", and Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis singing together on "Ballade De Melody Nelson"! Other tracks include "Initials BB" with Iggy Pop, "Sous Le Soleil Exactement" with Shane McGowan, "Manon" with Marianne Faithful, "La Javanaise" with Richard Bona, and "Couleur Cafe" with Aya. Instrumental tunes include "Intoxicated Man" and "Black Trombone". LP, Vinyl record album

Nathan HainesNathan Haines – The Chillifunk Years ... CD
Chilli Funk (UK), Early 2000s. Used 2CDs ... $9.99
A key collection of work by one of the hippest cats on the London scene for the past decade or so – reedman Nathan Haines, a saxophonist by trade, but an artist whose talents stretch way past conventional jazz! In his recordings for the Chilifunk label, Haines' created a whole new wave of cosmic soul from the UK – tunes that drew heavily on 70s spiritual soul jazz for inspiration, but fused their energy around some of the more dynamic rhythms that had been coming up in London during the late 90s – a maturation of a groove that really took flight in the hands of Haines and some of his contemporaries! The work here is Nathan's best from that time – a range of singles and LP tracks that includes a good bit of numbers that are now out of print – all brought together in a massively overstuffed 2CD set. Vocals here are by Marlena Shaw, Vanessa Freeman, Rich Medina, Verna Francis, and others – and titles include "Earth Is The Place", "Soundtravels", "Honeycomb", "FM", "Illest Hobo", "Springtime Rain", "Doot Dude", "Right By Your Side", "Squire For Hire", "Let It Go", "O Misterio", "Believe (Kenny Dope rmx)", "Surprising (Restless Soul peaktime mix)", "Long (4Hero mix)", "U See That (Notenshun rmx)", "Earth Is The Place (DJ Gregory & Julian Jabre rmx)", "O Misterio (Yam Who rmx)", and "Doot Dude (Ashley Beedle rmx)".

Nathan HainesRight Now ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2009. Used ... $4.99
Damn wonderful work from Nathan Haines – and proof that the reigning prince of the London cosmic scene is still going strong! This long-awaited set is every bit as wonderful as anything we've heard from Haines before – a sublime blend of soulful rhythms, jazzy riffs, and righteous energy – put together with a sound that draws heavily from the most soulful music of the 70s – the kind of funky fusion and spiritual jazz records that we've always loved so much! Nathan's one of the few cats who can get a sound like this so right – so much so, we'd easily rank a record like this next to some of our classics on labels like Fantasy Records or Black Jazz. The album's stacked with plenty of great keyboards, wrapped around Haines' soulful saxophone lines – and about half the cuts feature vocals, by guests who include Marlena Shaw, Vanessa Freeman, Ty, and Tama Waipara. Titles include "Tell Me What You're Feeling", "Home", "Talkin Around", "Right Now", "Today", "Pick It Up", "Creation Calling", and "Gitmo Ritmo". Also features bonus tracks – "Creation Calling (summer street rmx)" and "Tell Me What You're Feeling (Domu voc mix)". CD

In The TraditionTradition Continues ... CD
AFJ, 2009. Used ... $9.99
A killer set from the contemporary Detroit jazz underground – and a set that smokes just like some of that city's classics from the Tribe Records years of the 70s! In The Tradition are a group who definitely get their name right – as they play here with just the right sort of spiritual, righteous jazz modes you'd guess from the title – using mostly acoustic instrumentation, in a batch of original tunes with a mighty deep feel! There's definitely some free-thinking players in the combo, but things never go too outside – and overall, the record's pretty darn swinging – with a lineup that includes Charles Hopkins on trumpet and flugelhorn, Olujimi Tafaoana on saxes and flute, Vicki Alexander and Mark Berger on baritone sax, Melanie White on trombone, and Brad Shearer on piano – plus some great percussion, and a slight bit of vocals. The use of trombones and baritone give the record some great lower-end sounds – which seems to further deepen its spirit – and titles include "Mashaka", "Vanessa", "Damani's Dance", "Blues For Nat Turner", "The Song Of The Maasai", and "Yurugu".

Reel PeopleSecond Guess ... CD
Papa (UK), 2006. Used ... $8.99
A stunning full length set from Reel People – soulful club with vocals by a variety of wonderful singers that include Angela Johnson, Vanessa Freeman, Dyanna Fearon, Sharlene Hector, and Jag! The set really lives up to the promise of Reel People's work on singles over the years – filled with the kind of warm soul that we've come to love in their music, and which sounds even better here spread out over the course of a full LP! Every track is really wonderful – not a bit of filler at all – and the set's easily one of the strongest releases of its type in a long time! Titles include "Second Guess", "The Light", "Butterflies", "Steppin", "Washing Away", "Back 2 Base", "Can't Stop", and "Positive Over Negative". CD

SandboyEchoes ... CD
Hinterland (Germany), 2005. Used ... $6.99
A great second chapter in the career of Switzerland's Sandboy – a collection that features a few key new songs, plus great remixes of work from the Wanderlust album and a few other Sandboy remixes of other work! The remixes alone are worth the price of admission – because they expand the original Sandboy groove with a variety of spacey soul touches that we really like – but the new tracks really top off the set even more, and are a great reward to all of us who have been waiting for more material! New tracks include "Call Out" with Randolph Matthews on vocals and "Common Cause" with Clara Hill – and remixes include "Lua Nua (Smiles Ahead three trees rmx)", "Les Eclairs (Leroy Schlimm rmx)", "Written In The Leaves (Break Reform rmx)", "BSB (Gerd's 4lux rmx)", and "Viver (Butti 49 re-fusion)" – plus remix tracks "So Real (Sandboy rmx)" by Gerd with Vanessa Freeman and "Brain Mousse (Sandboy's moisturizing rmx)" by Plastyc Buddha.

✨✧ SpeedometerOur Kind Of Movement ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $13.99
Speedometer have been giving us great funky music for many many years – yet this album may well have the group hitting a whole new level in sound – able to hold on to all the gritty elements of their early days, while also expanding in ways that touch onto Afro Funk, psychedelic funk, and cinematic funky modes too! The core instrumentation is great – with a lineup that's maybe bigger than at the start, but which also adapts to some well-placed shifts in style – on tunes that are half instrumental, and half vocal – the latter of which feature contributions from Vanessa Jamie, Najwa Ezzaher Perso, and James Jr. Titles include "We Gave Up Too Soon", "Abuja Sunrise", "Kashmir", "Edge Of Fear", "Mo Crunch", "Funky Amigo", "Mind Escape", "Look No Further", and "Time To Slow It Down".

✨✧ Hajime YoshizawaHajime Yoshizawa ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2002. Used ... $16.99
Wonderful work from Hajime Yoshizawa – a deeply soulful album with universal appeal! Hajime's one of the current Japanese master of the jazzy dancefloor groove – and he's wisely working here with some great English language vocalists, who really help open his music up to a wider audience, and only more deeply root it in a soulful dancefloor tradition. Vocals on the set are by Carol Crosby, Vanessa Freeman, Norinha, and Nina Miranda from the group Smoke City – and even the instrumental tunes have a sound that links them strongly to a global tradition that runs through the current London and Compost scenes. Really great all the way through – the kind of all-solid album we're really getting behind! Titles include "Endless Bow", "Polygraph", "Melos", "Secret Flight", "Ease Your Mind", "Music In The Sky", and "I Am With You". CD

✨✧ Hajime YoshizawaMusic From The Edge Of The Universe ... CD
Geneon (Japan), 2005. Used ... $14.99
Hajime calls this one Music From The Edge Of The Universe – but heck, we're just happy that it got to us all the way from Japan! The set is easily his greatest work ever – a beautiful blend of cosmic rhythms and warmer Latinized touches – in a mode that has the crackling broken beats of earlier years dancing with a strong influence from Brazil – a sound that's warmly seductive and extremely soulful throughout! Most tracks are still aimed strongly at the dancefloor, but there's a more spacious vibe here that makes the album equally a pleasure to listen to as to groove to – a jazzier sensibility that comes through especially nicely on a few of the album's instrumental tracks. Vocalists include Bird, Vanessa Freeman, Face, Catia, and Akiko – and titles include "Crescent Moon", "Rise Me Up", "Keep It Movin", "Beyond The Sunshine", "Favourite Vital Kiss", "Arpegio In The Forest", "Verao No Ar", "Waltz For Jason", "Impulse", and "The Room".

TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of rare 45s from the powerhouse TK Records label and all it's many smaller imprints – Dade, Glades, Alston, and many others – brought here together with a focus on a really special side of the label! TK was one of the first to really promote the 12" single in the disco generation – but before, during, and after the label maintained a strong commitment to the funky 45 too – and really used the format to showcase some of its stronger soul singers, in a way that made sure that the 7" singles packed plenty of punch! This set features 24 of those rare nuggets from TK, with plenty of obscure numbers in the lineup – and titles include "All Because Of Your Love" by Otis Clay, "Rules Are Made To Be Broken" by The Diamonettes, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "I Can't Speak" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Don't Waste My Time" by Jerry Washington, "Hold On To It" by Barry Smith, "Please Don't Stop" by Wildflower, "Stop Hurting Me Baby" by Purple Mundi, "One Night Affair" by The Rising Sun, "That Is Why" by Sherlyn Wittiker & Touch, "Even Though" by King Tutt, "Do What You Wanna Do (part 1)" by Frank Howard & The Continentals, and "How Can I Do What's Right" by Vanessa Kendrick.

Vanessa/Takashima, 1974. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two of the funkiest tracks ever recorded by the legendary Oliver Sain – back to back on a funky 45! First up is "On The Hill" – this slow, snakey groove that's become one of Sain's main calling cards over the years – a track that has this excellent bad-stepping guitar riff that sets up the groove, punctuated by just a bit of vibes – then covered over the top by a wonderful alto solo from Oliver! "St Louis Breakdown" is equally funky, but in a different way – with a great drum break at the start, and Sain calling out the band in this very groovy groove – hard funk, with a very classic vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record
