Vince GuaraldiComplete Warner Brothers/Seven Arts Recordings (Oh Good Grief/Eclectic/Alma-Ville/bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1968/1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 25.98
A trio of wonderful records – plus rare bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Oh Good Grief – one of the coolest, grooviest albums that pianist Vince Guaraldi ever recorded – a set that's got the same Peanuts theme as his earlier dates for Fantasy Records, but which also features some sweet electric touches that only make things even better than before! In addition to his warmly vamping piano, with all those lyrical touches we love so much, Vince is playing an electric harpsichord too – which makes for some very groovy moments – in a cool quartet that features guitar from Eddie Duran, bass from Stanley Gilbert, and drums from the great Carl Burnett! All tunes are Peanut-themed – the music that Guaraldi wrote for the TV specials – but they're sometimes taken at a looser style that's even jazzier overall – as you'll hear on the classic "Linus & Lucy", plus "Red Baron", "Peppermint Patty", "Great Pumpkin Waltz", and "Rain Rain Go Away". The Eclectic Vince Guaraldi nicely expands Vince's sound of earlier years – by taking his lyrical piano groove and adding in a bit of electric harpsichord – plus slightly larger arrangements that feature a bit of electric bass, guitar, and just the right light touches of strings. The resulting sound is wonderful – as deeply reflective as some of Vince's better-known work, but with some cool late 60s touches that really give the album a fresh kind of feel. And heck, Vince even sings on 2 Tim Hardin tracks – "Black Sheep Boy" and "Reason To Believe" – using a great raspy style of vocals that we didn't even know he had! Other titles include a great electric version of "The Beat Goes On", plus cool originals "Nobody Else", "Coffee and Doe-Nuts", and "Lucifer's Lady". Alma-Ville was cut during Vince's late 60s hipster phase – and it combines work on piano with a bit of electric playing, plus hip LA arrangements that include drums by Dom Um Romao, guitar by Herb Ellis, and added percussion by Rubens Bassini. Tracks are mostly originals – short groovers and sing-song numbers, a lot cooler than some of Vince's earlier work – all dancing along in a sweetly breezy groove that makes for a heck of a delightful little album! Titles include "Rio From The Air", "Cristo Redentor", "Uno Y Uno", "Detained In San Ysidro", "Jambos", "Alma Ville", and "The Masked Marvel". 2CD set features 4 bonus tracks – "Oh Happy Day", "The Sharecropper's Daughter", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose (take 15)", and 'The BEat Goes On (alt take 14)".

Hasaan Ibn Ali (Hasaan)Retrospect In Retirement of Delay – The Solo Recordings ... CD
Omnivore, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99 27.99
Stunning solo piano work from legendary Philly musician Hasaan – best known for his one Atlantic session with Max Roach, but sounding completely different here on his own! From the very first note of the set, you know that you're in the company of a committed modernist, of the same generation as Herbie Nichols and Elmo Hope – a player with an equally unique, individual conception, and an ability to work a very familiar instrument in all these really unusual ways – often with a quality that makes you feel as if Hasaan is about to step outside and improvise more freely, but always swinging back with an inherent sense of rhythm that's wonderful. The set features both original tunes and reworked standards, pulled from a variety of different tapes recorded in both Philly and New York in the mid 60s – superbly brought back to life here, with a double-length set of selections that include "Off My Back Jack", "Off Minor", "Atlantic Ones", "Mean To Me", "True Train", "Untitled Ballad", "Extemporaneous Prose Poem", "Besame Mucho", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Arabic Song".

Kool & The GangPerfect Union ... CD
Omnivore, 2021. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
Kool & The Gang are back in action – crackling forth with a new sort of energy that also has the group bringing a sense of positivity to their music! The vibe here is very different than their funky 45 work of the early days, and their big crossover cuts at the start of the 80s – and there's a rock-solid quality that's a reminder that although we sometimes forget that some of the giants are still out there, away from the limelight, they often have skills and sharpness that are better than the younger artists they inspired! The leadoff cut "Pursuit Of Happiness" has a message and sense of history that's wonderfully uplifting – and other cuts include "The Weekend", "All To Myself", "Good Time", "Hold On", "Leave It On The Dancefloor", and "High".

Little RichardSecond Coming (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, 1972. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Funky 70s Little Richard – very much in the spirit of his Rill Thing album, although a bit more polished! The album features production and arrangements from New Orleans soul legend Bumps Blackwell – who first handled Richard way back when – and the record's sort of divided half and half between tracks that have a 70s funky feel, and others that are going back for more of an older styled retro rocking groove – yet not nearly as much so as on Richard's previous Reprise album. Titles include "Nuki Suki", "The Prophet Of Peace", "Thomasine", "Second Line", and "It Ain't What You Do It's The Way How You Do It". Includes the bonus tracks "Money Is", "Do It To It", and single edits of "Mockingbird Sally" and "Money Is". CD

Buck OwensSweet Rosie Jones ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, 1968. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Buck Owens and his Buckaroos at the top of their game – one of the sharpest country music acts at the end of the 60s, and still as brilliant here as they were when they first burst on the scene! In fact, the quality of Buck's work is often so strong, it's easy to miss – maybe in part because he was a rising star on the TV screen – although here, he and the group are still impeccable in terms of presentation – and also songwriting too, as almost every cut on the record is an original from Buck – save two from Bakersfield contemporaries Merle Haggard and Tommy Collins! Titles include "Hello Happiness Goodbye Loneliness", "If I Had Three Wishes", "Sally Mary & Jerry", "How Long Will My Baby Be Gone", "Leave Me Something To Remember You Buy", "Swinging Doors", "Girl On Super Pie Lane", and "The Heartaches Have Just Started".

Jaco PastoriusModern American Music – Period – The Criteria Tapes ... CD
Omnivore, 1974. Used ... $9.99
Some of the earliest work ever from Jaco Pastorius – rare demo recordings, issued in this format for the first time ever – filled to the brim with the kind of groundbreaking basswork that Jaco helped pioneer! Many tracks are relatively spare, and really give you a great chance to hear the special skills that Pastorius brought to his instrument – that level of soloing that was even more deft than most work on horns, and which pushed the instrument into really amazing territory. Other instrumentation includes Fender Rhodes, drums, steel drums, and some percussion from Don Alias – and titles include "Balloon Song", "Pans #1", "Kuru", "Havona/Continuum", "Time Lapse", and "Opus Pocus".

Art Pepper & Warne MarshUnreleased Art Vol 9 – Art Pepper & Warne Marsh At Donte's – April 26, 1974 (3CD set) ... CD
Omnivore, 1974. New Copy 3CD ... $30.99 31.99
An incredible later pairing of these two giants from the modern jazz scene of the 50s – brought together in the 70s for this searing extended club performance! Both Art Pepper's alto and Warne Marsh's tenor had changed a lot since the early years, but in the best way possible – as both musicians here have a heck of a lot of bite, really break out in longform solos, and really push themselves past the more composed sound of their youth! The record also captures Pepper right at that moment when his star was beginning to rise as a leader and soloist – and the vibe here is nicely less structured than on some of his albums from a few years later – given a nice raw edge from the trio of Mark Levine on piano, John Heard on bass, and Lew Malin on drums! This is way more than just another Art Pepper live date – a truly special set, with long takes on "All The Things You Are", "Yardbird Suite", "Good Bait", "What's New", "Donna Lee", "Walkin", "Round Midnight", "Broadway", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Over The Rainbow", and "Rhythm A Ning".

Staple SingersUnlock Your Mind (with bonus track) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1978. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Darn nice work from The Staple Singers – a record that seems to take the leaner, meaner sound learned by the group during their soundtrack years, and turn it back towards the fuller, more righteous sound of the Stax years! The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, with very solid production and instrumentation throughout – a top-shelf effort that shows that even at this later date, a group like The Staples can still get some good sounds out of the studio. A few tracks are a bit mis-stepped, especially when Mavis steps out a bit too strongly in the lead – but overall, there's plenty of nice surprises on the record – and tracks include "Chica Boom", "Don't Burn Me", "Handwriting On The Wall", "Mystery Train", "I Want You To Dance", "Love Being Your Fool", "Showdown", "Unlock Your Mind", and "Leave It All Up To Love". CD also features a bonus single edit of "Chica Boom". CD

StaplesFamily Tree (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1977. Used ... $6.99
The Staple Singers pick up a great Chicago soul groove – with production by Eugene Record and arrangements by Tom Tom Washington – all in a sound that's almost as if they'd left Stax Records and started to record for Brunswick! The groove's every bit as soaring and joyous as Record and Washington crafted a few years before in the Chicago indie scene – with perhaps just a few more late 70s elements to round things out, including some tightly funky guitar bits and a few quick-stepping rhythms that nicely push the Staples towards the dancefloor! Titles include "Family Tree", "What You Doing Tonight", "I Honestly Love You", "See A Little Further", "Color Me Higher", "Let's Go To The Disco", and "Boogie For The Blues". CD features bonus single edits of "Let's Go To The Disco" and "I Honestly Love You". CD

✨✧ Bobby ColePoint Of View (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Concentric/Omnivore, 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to emerge as a serious vocalist with a rich talent for penning interesting and witty little tunes. The album's got Bobby singing in a style that's halfway between Matt Dennis and Mark Murphy – with the sophisticated talents of both in place, and perhaps a bit of the wit of Bob Dorough or Roy Kral. The original album features Bobby on piano and vocals, with only bass and drums behind him – and titles include "You Can't Build A Life On A Look", "Heat", "You Could Hear A Pin Drop", "Change Of Scene", "A Perfect Day", "Elegy For Eve", and "Status Quo". CD features 13 unissued bonus tracks too – different than the ones that were on the previous Japanese CD release – great titles with a similar vibe, including "Checkerboard Life", "Drink This Cup", "Never Ask The Hour", "A Toast", and "When She Was In Love With Me".

✨✧ Trini LopezRare Reprise Singles ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderfully groovy work from Trini Lopez – the singer/guitarist who cut some great albums for Reprise Records in the 60s, but who seemed to sound even groovier in the space of a 7" single! This set brings together most of Trini's 45s for Reprise, most on CD for the first time ever – and together, the cuts are a long-overdue tribute to the pop genius that Lopez offered up in the 60s – a sound that was initially served up in a rocking small combo mode, but took in all these great flights into sunshine pop, Latin soul, and other cool styles that are all served up on this very cool collection! 24 tracks in all – with titles that include "Made In Paris", "Pretty Little Girl, "Up To Now", "The Bramble Bush", "You Make My Day", "Five O'Clock World", "Love Story", "Master Jack", "Something Tells Me", "There Was A Crooked Man", "Let's Think About Living", "Mexican Medicine Man", "Regresa A Mi", and "Let It Be Known".

✨✧ Dennis CoffeyOne Night At Moreys – 1968 ... CD
Omnivore, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If there's one thing we know about funk legend Dennis Coffey, it's that we can never get enough of his early work – especially when he's working in his trio with the mighty Lyman Woodard on Hammond! The pair together are fantastic – and have this Detroit-bred version of jazz funk that's even grittier than anything coming out on Prestige Records in the 60s – a vibe that reflects the ties both musicians had to the local soul scene, and also hits at Coffey's great wave of records to come on Sussex in the 70s! But the groove here is even deeper and more open – captured live on long tracks that really take off – so that even if the trio is playing familiar songs, they come out completely unique in the hard-jamming style of the group. The mighty Melvin Davis is on drums – and tracks include very long takes on "Eleanor Rigby", "Cissy Strut", and the great Richard Evans' tune "Burning Spear" – plus "Groovin", "It's Your Thing/Union Station", "Big City Lights", "Mindbender", and "I'm A Midnight Mover" – all previously unreleased!

✨✧ Staple Singers/Curtis MayfieldLet's Do It Again (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from The Staple Singers – and that's really saying a lot, as they cut a huge amount of really great records! The album's an unusual collaboration between the group and Curtis Mayfield – one that forges the great vocal styles they were developing at Stax Records with some of the hip soundtrack modes that Curtis had created for Superfly – a blend that's served up perfectly in the best style of Mayfield's legendary Curtom Records! The Staples sound maybe even more righteous in the setting – with great grooves that are hip and funky at times, deeply soulful at others – arranged by Gil Askey and Rich Tufo in the same manner as Curtis' work from the time. Includes the hit title cut "Let's Do It Again", plus other nice ones like "After Sex", "Chase", "Big Mac", and "Funky Love". CD also features bonus tracks – single edits of "After Sex", "New Orleans", and "Let's Do It Again". CD

✨✧ Art PepperPromise Kept – The Complete Artist House Albums (So In Love/Artworks/Stardust/New York Album) (4LP set) ... LP
Artists House/Omnivore, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4LP ... Out Of Stock
Four tremendous albums from saxophone genius Art Pepper – presented here in a single box set! First up is So In Love – beautiful late work from Art Pepper – one of his albums recorded for the well-done Artist House label, and a set that's maybe got a different vibe than some of his Galaxy recordings of the time! There's a rock-solid sense of soul to the record – one that comes from the work of two different rhythm trios – one that features George Cables on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – a rhythm trio who keep things swinging, but never in a way that's too straight – pushing Art a bit around the edges, but letting him come right down the middle with some fantastic solos on alto – the other with Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Al Foster on drums. Tunes are a bit shorter than on some other albums of the period, but in a great way that really lets you focus in on Pepper's amazing sound –and titles include "Diane", "Stardust", "Blues For Blanche", and "Straight No Chaser". Artworks is a nicely focused set from the great Art Pepper – a record that features a number of familiar bop and jazz themes, but set to a more open, relaxed, and very soulful style that wonderfully reflects all the greatness of Pepper in his final years! The group on the record is nicely understated, but still very hip – George Cables on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and Art gets plenty of space to step out front and really blow these amazing solos, including one number that features just bass and drums, while Pepper blows a bit of clarinet – which we always love. All other titles feature alto sax – and titles include "Donna Lee", "Anthropology", "You Go To My Head", "Body & Soul", and "Desafinado". Next is a New York Album, but one that was oddly recorded in Burbank – and which has Art Pepper sounding very much at the top of his game! The format here is a bit like the other Artist House Pepper sessions, and those he did for the Japanese Atlas label – tight, focused, often tunes that are older jazz or bop standards – but swing with a great rhythm section, and topped with completely sublime alto solos from the leader! The quartet features Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Al Foster on drums – but one number is a duo between Carter and Pepper, and another features just piano and alto. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Lover Man", "Duo Blues", "My Friend John", and "Straight No Chaser". Stardust is a great little record from Art Pepper – four long tracks that really have him stretching out on alto – but in a way that's maybe a bit different than some of his more burning albums on the Galaxy label at the time! The group here follows from some of the previous Artist House recordings – George Cables on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – a rhythm combo that's mighty nice – and which benefits from some great straight basswork from Haden, and Higgins' always compelling sense of rhythm! Titles include "My Friend John", "Stardust", and "Tin Tin Deo" – plus a reading of "In A Mellotone" that has Art on clarinet. LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful package – liner notes and photos from Laurie Pepper, and remastered from the original tapes!)
