✨✧ Miles DavisOn The Corner (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sublime bit of Miles Davis electric funk – one of the best-remembered electric sets from the 70s, and for good reason too! The tracks are long, the jams are hard, and the whole thing has a lot more funk than some of the noise you'd get on other Miles albums of the time – thanks to killer keyboards from Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, guitar from John McLaughlin, and reeds from Dave Liebman – plus some standout drums from the legendary Jack DeJohnette – easily at the top of his powers here. These top-shelf players jam together beautifully – really cooking on the album's long tracks – "On The Corner" and "Helen Butte/Mr Freedom X" – and tightening up on the slightly shorter cuts "Black Satin" and "One & One".

✨✧ VariousMartin Freeman & Eddie Piller Present Soul On The Corner ... LP
Acid Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Two dapper British gents on the cover, but the album's filled with classic American soul – really great cuts from back in the day, served up in an array of well-chosen tracks that really go past the obvious! Both Martin Freeman and Eddie Piller (of Acid Jazz fame) put the set together – but the real stars here are the classic singers and groups who make the music so great – and who together represent a much hipper, more sophisticated version of classic soul than the usual hits or oldies collection! A number of cuts here are quite rare, and others are a mix of unusual songs by bigger names – mixed with just a few tracks from leftfield to keep things interesting. Titles include "Just To Be With You" by Bobby Dukes, "Finally Made It Home" by Arnold Blair, "You & I" by Goodie, "How Could You Break My Heart" by Bobby Womack, "Lucky To Be Loved By You" by Willie Hutch, "Now That I Have You" by Tommy McGee, "Thirty One" by Laville, "Oooh Baby" by Pamoja, "I'm Goin Left" by Syreeta, "Shoes" by Brook Benton, "I Like The Things About Me That I Once Despised" by Wayne Davis, "Lucky" by Lewis Taylor, "Fan The Fire" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Daylight" by Georgie Fame, "A Raggedy Ride" by Barbara Acklin, and "Hit & Run Love" by Tommie Young.

On The Corner (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the moodiest, most introspective groups to emerge from the London scene in the past few years – a group headed up by Tamar Osborn, who blows flute, clarinet, and baritone sax – in addition to handling a lot of the basslines on the set – in this balance between the reeds and bass that gives the whole record a really brooding, slow-burning intensity! Other players include Josephine Davies on tenor, Mike Lesirge on tenor and alto flute, Suman Joshi on bass, Marco Piccioni on guitar, and Maurizio Ravalico on percussion – and the album often hangs in these currents of reed energy building slowly with direction from the bass, and maybe some softer colors from the other instrumentation – which makes for a very meditative vibe throughout. Titles include "Pause", "Continuation", "Lost & Found", "Deep Peace", and "The Angry One". CD

CollocutorInstead (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
On The Corner (UK), 2014. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 31.98
A gem of a record that came out at a time when the UK scene was just beginning to explode with a whole new wave of jazz energy – and a set that's ripe for rediscovery even a few years later! Collocutor are a smallish group – just a septet – but they play with a righteous majesty that recalls the work of older spiritual jazz ensembles – this sense of power and vision that comes through right away in their music, and which continues throughout the entire record – making the whole thing one hell of a rich musical statement! Things are mostly in the spiritual jazz spectrum, but go outside a bit from time to time – and there seems to be some echo and other production elements used to expand the sound slightly, but never in a gimmicky way. The group play with plenty of percussion at the core, plus tenor from Josephine Davies, trumpet from Simon Finch, guitar from Marco Piccioni, and flute, baritone, and soprano sax from Tamar Osborn. Titles include "Gozo", "Elephant Room", "Instead", "Agama", and "Archaic Morning". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Arthur BlytheIn The Tradition ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Arthur Blythe may be in the tradition here, but he's never of the tradition – as the set represents the modern musician taking on a host of older jazz currents, while carving things out with his own special sort of soul! Half the tunes are familiar favorites, the other half originals – and Blythe moves far past his avant roots, to showcase his deep understanding of so many different shades of jazz – blowing alto beautifully throughout, in a very hip quartet that features Stanley Cowell on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on drums! Titles include great takes on "Naima", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Caravan", and "In A Sentimental Mood" – plus the originals "Break Tune" and "Hip Dipper". LP, Vinyl record album

Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Very Good ... $4.99
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jean CarneDon't Let It Go To Your Head – The Jean Carne Anthology ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic tribute to the great Jean Carne – a singer who started out in jazz, working with then-husband Doug Carn on spiritual sessions and drummer Norman Connors on his soulful sides of the 70s – then shifted over to the Philadelphia International label, where she really helped Philly soul find new direction moving into the 80s! Jean always brings all the sophistication of her roots into her music – making her way more than just another soul singer, and instead a vocalist with a great range of expression that has her opening up in just the right way, no matter what the setting. This excellent collection is filled with classics from her years on Philadelphia International, and also includes some rare 12" mixes and duets with other artists too. Titles include "Free Love", "No Laughing Matter", "Don't Let It Go To Your Head", "You Can't Come Back Now", "There's A Shortage Of Good Men", "Time Waits For No One", "Lonely Girl In A Cold Cold World", "Bet Your Lucky Star", We Got Some Catchin Up To Do", "When I Find You Love", "Was That All It Was (12" mix)", "What's On Your Mind (12" mix)", "Revelation/Infant Eyes", "Mystic Stranger", "Completeness", and "If You Don't Know Me By Now" – plus "I'm Back For More" with Al Johnson, "Sweet & Wonderful" with Glenn Jones, "You Might Be Surprised" with Roy Ayers, "Love Is Beautiful" and "Dreams Of Tomorrow" with Dexter Wansel, "Keep In Touch" and "The Look Of Love" with Grover Washington, and "Dindi", "Love's In Your Corner", and "Valentine Love" with Norman Connors.

Chairmen Of The BoardSkin I'm In ... LP
Invictus, 1974. Very Good+ ... $36.99
Probably the rarest of all albums by The Chairmen Of The Board – and also the last! The album was cut after the band re-formed briefly, and it's got a fuzzed-out heavy soul sound that's quite different from some of the group's earlier work. There's heavy guitar on many tracks – riffing away in a psychedelic mode that dominates most tracks, but which almost buries the group's vocals. The album's a great one if you dig the funk side of the Chairmen – and at times, it almost reminds us of The Politicians, who were kind of labelmates of the group. Includes the excellent two-part funk track "Life & Death" – plus "Love At First Sight", "Everybody Party All Night", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Finder's Keepers", "Skin I'm In", and "White Rose (Freedom Flower)". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate – Early Show/Late Show ... LP
FM, 1963. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have a slightly different spirit. Backing is by a small group that includes Mundell Lowe on guitar, Ronnie Ball on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Shaunessy on drums – and the liveness of the recording really comes through, in a way that gets more at the boozy Chris of late nite clubs than you'd hear on most of her studio albums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Old Devil Moon", "Goodbye", "Only The Lonely", "Black Coffee", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Only The Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – with deep groove. Cover has a light mark from a sticker in one corner, but is nice overall.)

Bob Crewe/The GlitterhouseBarbarella ... LP
Dyno Voice, 1968. Sealed ... $34.99
One of the most insanely wonderful soundtracks from the late 60s – filled with weird instrumental touches and sublimely groovy vocals that really match the mad spirit of the film! Although Bob Crewe's best known for his work as a producer for bigger names in the 60s, he really shines here on this set – stepping out with a mad mix of styles that blends 60s adult easy with spacier themes – using primitive electronics and odd studio tricks to capture the cartoony space landscape of Jane Fonda's world in the move. The Glitterhouse sing on a few cuts, in a great mod rock soundtrack mode – and the pacing, timing, and overall presentation of the music here is really great – an audio document that almost feels like a "sonic film" in and of itself! Tracks include "Barbarella", "Ski Ride", "Hungry Dolls", "Entrance Into Sogo", "The Pill", "Smoke (Viper Vapor)", "I Love All The Love In You", "The Labyrinth", "The Sex Machine", "The Chamber Of Dreams" and many more.

Down To The BoneClassic Album Series (From Manhattan To Staten/Urban Grooves/Spread The Word – with bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 1996/1998/2001. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99
The first three albums from Down To The Bone – packaged here in a nicely-priced set, with bonus tracks too! First up is From Manhattan To Staten – a record that moves across the boroughs of New York – and which also managed to have a huge impact on the Windy City as well – given that the music of Down To The Bone was perfect for the groove of the Chicago steppers scene in the 90s! The group are a bit jazz, a bit soul, and have this chunky funky rhythm at the bottom that shows their roots in the British scene – maybe a mix of electric jazz modes with inspirations from artists like Soul II Soul or the James Taylor Quartet – taken to a style that's slightly tighter overall. There's a fair bit of programming in the rhythms, mixed with live instrumentation from group members – and titles include the classic "Staten Island Groove", plus "Muesli Brown", "Savour The Flavour", "Brooklyn Heights", "3 Days In Manhattan", "Carlito's Way", "On The Corner Of Darcy Street", and "17 Mile Drive". Urban Grooves is the second album from Down To The Bone – and a set that really continues the vibe of their debut – a mix of programmed funky rhythms and liver jazz instrumentation – all awash in a groove that really helped them cross over big on both sides of the Atlantic! The production is tight, but looser than smooth jazz of the time – and the record's got more than a few strong keyboard and saxophone solos to offset its rhythmic patterns, which often draw heavily from the best styles of the British soul scene in the late 80s and early 90s. Titles include "A Little Touch Of Soul", "Phat City Hustler", "Joy Is A Good Groove", "Bump N Hustle", "To The Bone", "The Zodiac", and "Urban Jazz". Spread The Word is the overlooked third album from Down To The Bone – a set that maybe didn't take the world by storm as much as their first two, but which still has the group very much in fine formation! All the best previous elements are in place here – that strong mix of funky jazz instrumentation with contemporary rhythmic production – almost a blend of some of the funkier club styles of the time with more mainstream fusion, at a level that made these guys both a hit on the dancefloors and for kicking back at the crib! Titles include "The Backburner", "Righteous Reeds", "Sound As A Pound", "Bridgeport Boogie", "The Lowdown", and "Black Choice". 3CD set features all albums in small LP-style jackets – and bonus tracks include "Deja Vu", "Concrete Jungle", "Staten Island Groove (live studio version)", and "Brooklyn Heights (live studio version)".

Clancy Eccles/The DynamitesFreedom/Fire Corner (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of gems from the early years of reggae – stacked back to back in a 2CD set, along with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! First up is the legendary Freedom album from Clancy Eccles – one of the first great talents to emerge in the Jamaican scene of the 60s – a singer whose recorded history even predates rocksteady and ska, and who had an undeniable impact on the early sound of reggae! Eccles is a genius – a singer/songwriter with a strong sense of soul, and an approach that really opened up the way for a new level of humanity in Jamaican music – as you'll hear on titles that include "Two Of A Kind", "Mount Zion", "Fattie Fattie", "What Will Your Mother Say", "Freedom", "I Need You", "The World Needs Loving", and "Dollar Train". The Dynamites were Clancy Eccles backing band at the same time as the Freedom album – and they step out here in an album of their own – one produced by Clancy himself, but issued even before they backed him up on Freedom! The set features numbers by the group, some organ tunes by Winston Wright, and two vocal appearances by King Stitt – on titles that include "John Public", "Eternally", "Sam Fie", "This Is The Night", "One Way Street", "Vigorton 2", "Fire Corner", "Soul Language", and "Say What You Say". Plus, this 2CD set has a huge amount of bonus tracks – 13 more numbers by Eccles – plus another 13 by The Dynamites, King Stitt, Val Bennett, and Winston Wright. A huge amount of music, all packaged with the usual deep notes and high quality that makes the Doctor Bird label one of the greatest reissue labels for Jamaican music! CD

Stuart L GoosmanGroup Harmony – The Black Urban Roots Of Rhythm & Blues ... Book
University Of Pennsylvania, 2005. New Copy ... $4.99 24.95
Group soul harmony gets some great treatment here – in a well-done book that follows the music from the street corner to the airwaves – all with a thoughtful mixture of oral history and the larger issues of the time! Author Stuart Goosman focuses especially on harmony groups on the Baltimore and Washington DC scenes of the postwar years – with a lot of detail on The Orioles, one of the first great groups in the tradition – and some of the smaller acts of the period as well – and the book begins with the initial postwar rise in the format, then looks at the huge wave of group harmony during the doo wop years. Although an academic book, the tone is never dry – and the oral history material really illuminates the music a great deal. 291 pages, softcover, with some black and white images. Book

✨✧ Great Jazz TrioGreat Jazz Trio At The Village Vanguard (Inner City) ... LP
East Wind/Inner City, 1977. Sealed ... $19.99
A wonderful live set from the legendary Great Jazz Trio of Ron Carter, Tony Williams, and Hank Jones – one of the group's key Japanese albums of the 70s! As the title implies, the set was recorded live at the Village Vanguard – in a setting that has the trio stretching out even more than on their already-spacious studio sides of the time. Williams is especially nice on the record – light and free on the kit, and miles away from some of his fusion work of the 70s. Jones' tones are warm and soulful, and Carter's bass work is always a treat in a setting like this. The album features a great take on "Naima", plus the tracks "Moose The Mooche", "Favors", and "12+12" – all done in nice long versions. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny GriffinWade In The Water (aka Big Soul Band) ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A sweet little album from Johnny – quite different than most of his other sessions at the time, as this one features a big band – a "Big Soul Band", as the title says – filled with some strong Chicago and soul jazz players, and featuring killer arrangements by the great Norman Simmons! Simmons' was just bubbling up at the time – and he had a sock soul jazz sound that was part of his time on the Chicago scene, and which, unfortunately, rarely achieved as strong of recorded expression as it did on this album. Griffin's a heck of a great player, even at this age, and the strength of his horn sits nicely in the front of a great ensemble that also includes Pat Patrick, Matthew Gee, Julian Priester, Frank Strozier, Bobby Timmons, Harold Mabern, Vic Sproles, and Charlie Persip. Titles include a number of Simmons originals – like "Meditation", "Panic Room Blues" and "Holla" – plus a great reading of Timmons' "So Tired", and traditionals like "Deep River", "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen" and "Wade In The Water" and Junior Mance's "Jubilation".

Think Brand New Heavies meets Stevie Wonder meets Steely Dan, and you'll get only part of the picture – as Jay and crew work things together perfectly, blending a wide range of influences into a globally conscious cosmic groove that's a perfect soul platform for the 21st century! 10 tracks: "Didgin' Out", "When You Gonna Learn (JK mix)", "Too Young To Die", "Music Of The Mind", "Hooked Up", "If I Like It I Do It", "Whatever It Is I Just Can't Stop", "Blow Your Mind", "Revolution 1993" and "Emergency On Planet Earth".

Johnny and The Bandwagon have a very groovy psychedelic pop soul sound, with the kind of swingbeat that was very popular with the Beach Music scene in the Carolinas, but which still sounds pretty darn fresh today. This one and only album by the group is quite tough to find, but it's well worth searching out, especially since we don't know of anything by them that's been reissued legitimately. Titles include "Are You Ready For This", "You", "Girl From Harlem", "I Ain't Lyin", and their big hit "Breakin Down The Walls of Heartache". LP, Vinyl record album

A few moments are more swing, but others are more offbeat – a very unusual session! LP, Vinyl record album

Solar/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977/1978/1979/1980/1982/1984. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
A huge collection of work from Carrie Lucas – one of the biggest stars of the legendary Solar Records during the late 70s – a really sweet-voiced singer, best known for her catchy dancefloor groovers! At one level, Carrie was a west coast disco diva who rivaled the strengths of New York singers on some of the smaller labels – but at another level, Carrie had a style that was steeped in older traditions of female soul – almost an update of some of the sweeter sounds of the 60s, into a more modern and sophisticated (and danceable) idiom. The work here is a bit New York club and catchy than the LA soul of other Solar artists of the time – and the rhythms are often full and upbeat, touched with strutting, stepping instrumentation to get the groove going right away! But given that the set features six full albums, there's also a lot more depth, too – and the whole thing features the records Simply Carrie, Street Corner Symphony, In Danceland, Portrait Of Carrie, Still In Love, and Horsin Around – all in a box set, with a huge booklet of notes. 47 tracks in all!

Bob Marley & The WailersSoul Rebels ... CD
Trojan/Radiation Roots (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $15.99
A record that's got maybe the cheesiest cover of any album by Bob Marley – and a set that's a bit notorious, too – as producer Lee Perry never shared money with the Wailers for the first few years of release! Still, the package is a key part of the Bob Marley story – especially in the years before greater fame on the Island label – as the early Trojan Records release brought together a host of key sides recorded by the group that included Bob and Peter Tosh – all produced by a young Lee Perry with some nicely dark currents in the rhythms that are perfectly balanced by Marley's lead and the harmonies of the trio. The cuts were recorded at Randy's, and titles include "Soul Rebel", "Try Me", "It's Alright", "No Sympathy", "My Cup", "Soul Almighty", "Rebel's Hop", "Corner Stone", "Four Hundred Years", "No Water", "Reaction", and "My Sympathy".

Alton McClain & DestinyGonna Tell The World ... LP
Polydor, 1981. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A sublime set from Alton McClain & Destiny – one of the hippest female soul trios ever – and a group who definitely work at a level that's far above most of their contemporaries! The group's got a jazzy flourish here that really deepens their sound – a strong influence from producer Skip Scarborough, who also wrote a fair bit of the tracks, and plays on the record alongside Patrice Rushen and Herbie Hancock on keyboards! Both of those players underscore the really rich sound of the record – an approach that's equally rooted in fusion as it is in soul – and which helps the vocal interplay find a space that's way beyond the usual girl group cliches of earlier years, especially some of the more lackluster trios of the disco generation. Alton's leads are wonderful – very rich and filled with soul – and titles include "My Destiny", "We're Gonna Make It", "Love Notes", "Because Of You", "Why Did You Let Me Love You", and "Making Room For Love".

Stu Phillips/Tammy Wynette/The WindowsRun Angel Run ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Sealed ... $24.99
Biker time again – as Stu Phillips lays down a tight little soundtrack for this obscure motorcycle flick from the late 60s! Stu started out as a jazz man, but is best known to us for his very groovy work on the Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls soundtrack. The best cuts on here are Stu's instrumentals – a mixture of funky jazz with a twist, and a bit of funky flute, plus some other numbers that have a well-composed, more serious approach. Highlights include "Friendly Fuzz", which mixes heavy guitars, drums, and flute – and "Rescue", which has a very similar approach – plus the chase-y groover "Get It On". Tammy Wynette sings the title cut "Run Angel Run", and The Windows sing "True Believers", "You're Gonna Get A Piece Of My Mind", and "Love & Admiration Of The Brotherhood Society Of South Napa County". Also includes "Oversexed" – a nice mellow tune with a misleading title. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace Silver QuintetDoin' The Thing (At The Village Gate) ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few live recordings ever done by Horace Silver during his Blue Note years – a real surprise, considering what a crowd pleaser he was at the time! The set catches Horace working with that great quintet that graced most of his best early Blue Notes – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor, Gene Taylor on bass, and the always-amazing Roy Brooks on drums. The groove is tight tight tight, and the live set crackles with the same sort of energy as the live sessions by the Jazz Messengers on Blue Note – rolling soul jazz, but with a bit of a lyrical touch to flesh things out. Because of the live setting, tracks are a bit longer than the usual Silver session – which makes for freer soloing, and a bit of a rougher edge that keeps things lively throughout. Titles include "The Gringo", "Filthy McNasty", and "Doin' The Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

A groovy 60s session from vibist Cal Tjader – and an excellent little Latin set, with a mixture of bossa nova and Latin jazz that goes way beyond the promise of the title! The great Clare Fischer arranged the set – and if you know his work with Cal, you know that he's got a wonderful approach to jazz that works perfectly with Tjader's unique phrasing – a spacious sensibility, and a great sense of timing – one that always ensures the tunes sparkle with a sweetly stepping groove. Fischer plays piano on the record – and other players include Laurindo Almeida on guitar, Paul Horn on reeds, Johnny Rae on timbales, and Milt Holland on percussion. Titles include "Choro E Batuque", "Nao Diga Nada", "Elizete", "Imagen", "Vai Querer", and "Que Tristeza". CD

✨✧ Scott WalkerTil The Band Comes In ... LP
Philips (UK), 1970. Very Good ... $99.99
Scott Walker's fifth solo album, and an oft-overlooked gem that really shows some new sides of his talents! The style here is a bit less iconic than that of the previous two records – more personal or sentimental at times, yet still served up with that uncannily observant sensibility that Scott inherited from Jacques Brel. Walker's voice is wonderfully fluid – still as dark as before, but with a slightly jazzy sensibility at times – no doubt picked up from his tours at the time in the UK as a small club vocalist. The album features a surprising guest appearance from Esther Ofarim, who sings solo on the track "Long About Now" – an odd arrangement that came about because Scott and her shared the same manager, Ady Semel, who also was sort of the director for the album. Titles include "Little Things", "Joe", "Thanks For Chicago Mr James", "Til The Band Comes In", "Cowbells Shakin", "The War Is Over", and "Jean The Machine". LP, Vinyl record album

Randy WestonMusic From The New African Nations Featuring The Highlife ... LP
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A fantastic Randy Weston album – and one of the albums that really showed the world all the new ideas he was cooking up in jazz! The style is very much as promised by the title – as drawn from African inspiration as his previous Uhuru Afrika record – but much more fused towards an American jazz idiom – at a level that makes Weston a key precursor to so much righteous music to come, much of it inspired by the same wave of African independence. Melba Liston handled the arrangements – and definitely deserves a lot of credit for the success of the set – and other hip players include Budd Johnson on soprano sax, Booker Ervin on tenor, and Ray Copeland on trumpet. Titles include the crucial original recordings of Weston classics like "Congolese Children", "Blues to Africa", and "Niger Mambo" –plus "Zulu", "In Memory Of", and "Mystery of Love".

Reuben WilsonOn Broadway ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Hammond hero Reuben Wilson's on Broadway – and he hits a massively soulful groove that's light years from the cliched sounds of the great white way! The set's one of the tightest cookers from Wilson's early years on Blue Note – and has a vibe that's a bit different than the rest, thanks to some compelling rhythmic elements that push things past a Lou Donaldson groove, and more into that chunky approach to organ jazz that Wilson would explore later on the Groove Merchant label. Most numbers have this back/forth groove that's really wonderful – almost a rocking energy that has Wilson laying in the pocket one minute, then bursting forth the next with some really tremendous work on the keys. Other group members are great too – and the quartet features tenorist Trevor Lawrence, guitarist Malcolm Riddick, and drummer Tommy Derrick – on tracks that include "Poincinana", "On Broadway", "Ronnie's Bonnie", "Ain't That Peculiar", and "Baby I Love You".

Larry Wild WriceWild – The Big Big Sound Of Larry Wild Wrice ... LP
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The only album we've ever seen from jazz drummer Larry Wrice – a Chicago player who really kicks it in a hard and heavy soul jazz groove! Larry's got an approach to the kit that's quite a lot like that of Joe Dukes – one that's always concerned with pushing the rhythms of the tune very strongly, but which is so strong, so confident that it can snap away for some additionally playful work all around the kit – making for a groove that's extremely groovy throughout! For the set, Larry's working in a quartet format – with a young James Spaulding on tenor, alto, and flute (his first session?), Bobby Bryant on trumpet, and Bobby Blivins on organ. Tracks are short, soulful, and very down and dirty – far more so than we would ever expect for a session on Pacific Jazz at the time! Titles include "Husky", "Church Seat", "Travelin", "Swingin & Things", "Santifism", "Antler Rock", "Unholy Four", and "Wild Wrice". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the former and the sense of color of the latter. Rhythm is from the team of Charlie Haden on bass and Jerry Granelli on drums – and Haden's bass is an especially powerful force in the set, pushing out the tunes with a flowing quality that pulsates nicely even on the more gentle numbers. Titles include "Lonely Woman", "Where Does It Lead", "My Shining Hour", "Spur Of The Moment", and "Carole's Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

As with that company, the music here is mostly pulled from vintage 78s, and given fresh presentation for a whole new generation of blues enthusiasts – a much-needed look at some of the more obscure artists of the period – including singers on the Chicago and Detroit scenes who were really transforming the music at the time. Titles include "Lou Ella" by Baby Face Leroy, "Worried Blues" by Hot Rod Happy, "Come On Babe" by Bluesboy Bill, "1951 Blues" by Luther Huff, "Home Again Blues" by Frankie Lee Sims, "Time For My Lovin To Be Done" by Eddie Kirkland, "Come Back Sugar Mama" by LC Green, and "Wee Wee Hours" by Charles Bradix.

VariousSlight Disturbance In My Mind – The British Proto-Psychedelic Sounds Of 1966 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1966. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
Fantastic sounds from a real turning point in British music – a moment when the mod groups and singers of the year before were letting in a bit more freak and fuzz – yet all in ways that still kept the songs as short, tight, and tuneful as before! You might consider this work the big bang that set up a whole second generation of genius in the UK – the catchy sort of 45s that paved the way for longer jams on albums, progressive rock experimentation, mindbending psych, and even the hard rock modes that were just around the corner. You'll recognize a few of the names here as mid 60s mod heroes, but they're also mixed with some great lesser-knowns, all with the kind of deep dig that we love from these box sets on the Grapefruit label – right down to the massive booklet of notes that offers up track by track information on all the music. 84 tracks in all – with work by The Rockin Vickers, Yardbirds, Wimple Winch, John's Children, The Action, The Koobas, Fleur De Lys, The Favourite Sons, Keith Relf, The People, David Bowie, The Smoke, The Creation, Graham Bond Organization, Downliners Sect, The 5am Event, The Tomcats, The Majority, The In Crowd, Just Five, The Times, The Uglys, Outrage, and lots lots more!

The performance features the sublime frontline trio of Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano – all players that are their youthful best, and completely on fire with creative imagination under Blakey's leadership – the start of a great run for all of them as solo stars too. The tracks are long, and even if the tunes are sometimes familiar, the performances are spectacular – that special Jazz Messengers energy that makes records like this so great.

Never-heard sounds from Lynn Castle – a singer who was maybe more famous in 60s LA for her work as a hair stylist – even though she spent her free time turning out really beautiful songs like these! Castle only ever issued one 45 on Lee Hazlewood's label – but the work here is mostly from earlier demos she cut with legendary producer Jack Nitzsche – who wisely leaves Lynn to mostly stand out in the lead on vocals and guitar – which makes for music that's surprisingly dark-tinged overall, and quite different than you might expect from her sexy look on the cover! The vocals are often quite moody – almost in Nico territory, but more tuneful overall – and the songs are incredibly haunting, maybe along the lines of some of the Leonard Cohen material from the early days. Titles include "The Stranger", "The Puppet", "The Forest", "New York", "I'm Getting Tired", "She Thinks She Feels", "Rose Colored Corner", and "Lonesome Lookout". The set also includes both sides of Castle's only single on LHI – produced by Hazlewood, backed by Last Friday's Fire – and titled "The Lady Barber" and "Rose Colored Corner". CD

The set captures Ornette in a much freer style than heard on his Atlantic recordings from a few years before – paying alto, violin, and trumpet, in a trio with David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums. Tracks are long and unbridled – with less of the rhythmic changes that you'd hear in work by the classic quartet, and more of a full-on fierce soloing mode. Titles include "Snowflakes & Sunshine", "Morning Song", "The Riddle", and "Antiques". LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Bill Evans' landmark sessions with the young bassist Scott LaFaro – a player who made key contributions on every record he touched, then left this earth far too soon in his career! The live session's a perfect demonstration of the way that the Evans trio format not only re-worked the use of the piano in jazz, but also the bass and drums as well – as LaFaro's deeply evocative playing is paired with the equally fresh drum work of Paul Motian – heard here at his youthful early best, before some of his contributions to jazz had become cliche in the hands of other players. The session was caught live at the Village Vanguard on the night of June 25, 1961 – and titles include longish takes on "Solar", "Jade Visions", "Gloria's Step", and "Alice In Wonderland".

There's a subtle brilliance here that's undeniable – a tenor sound that draws from Lester Young and Ben Webster, but which pushes into fresh new territory for the 50s – lean, but still very soulful at the core – a blend that none of Stan's contemporaries could ever match this well! The album features a group that includes a very young Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, plus rhythm by Teddy Kotick, John Williams, and Frank Isola. Tracks are longish and easily swinging – and Getz's tone, as always, makes the whole thing come together like magic! Titles include "Oh Jane Snavely", "The Varsity Drag", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I'll Remember April". LP, Vinyl record album

Feller nicely restrains some of his usual tricks, and takes Monro to the same sort of sophisticated, adult space in pop that Nancy Wilson was hitting for Capitol at the time – a bit jazzy, sometimes poppy, but never in a way that's gimmicky or aimed at the kids.

Wand, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really unique album from the great John Lee Hooker – done for the mostly-soul Wand Records label, and with a feel that's quite different than some of Hooker's other records! There's a distinctly jazzy undercurrent running through the record at times – sometimes with some moody, soulful elements bubbling underneath John's lead vocals and guitar on the mellow tracks – or at other times with a fuller sense of arrangements, a bit like you might find on 60s work on the Duke/Peacock label blues sessions. Hooker's in fine form throughout – and seems to open up nicely in the setting – and a few tracks are a bit more stripped-down, with a slightly rootsy feel. Titles include "Don't Want Nobody Else", "Crazy Mixed Up World", "Little Dreamer", "Seven Days", "Don't Be Messing With My Bread", "Storming On The Deep Blue Sea", and "Lost Everything".

Soulful reedman Tenderlonious plays flute this time around – but as always, it's the overall sound that makes the record so great – not just the solo bits on flute, but all the keyboards, basslines, and beats – stretched out in this cool 21st Century take on funky fusion! The music is jazz at the core, but more electrified too – with a straightforward funky groove on some numbers, and some more enigmatic modes on others – all a great blend of keyboards and flutes, which often share the same tonal range. Titles include "Dale's Corner", "Autumn Leaves", "Ghana", "Odeo Bushi", "In A Sentimental Mood", and "Song For My Father" – and the three tunes with familiar titles are actually originals by the man himself.

✨✧ Reuben Wilson & The Cost Of LivingGot To Get Your Own ... LP
Cadet, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Monster funk from Hammond hero Reuben Wilson – an album of hard-burning, bad-walking tunes that are a fair bit different than most of his other work! Although Wilson recorded some pretty traditional organ jazz for the Blue Note and Groove Merchant labels, this album has him working with his "Cost Of Living" group – a combo who only recorded this one album, and which includes Richard Tee on keyboards, Bad Bascomb on bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and both Houston Person and Pee Wee Ellis on tenor sax! Most cuts have some sort of vocals – sung by either Sammy Turner or Kenny Williams, both of whom really fit the badass spirit of the record, and bring in a nice range of deeper themes from the 70s. There's almost a blacksploitation funk feel to the record at times, although the set's also got more of a soul album focus too – a rare move for Reuben, but one that's made the album a favorite for years! Tracks include the rare groove classics "Got To Get Your Own" and "Tight Money" – plus "Together", "Stoned Out Of My Mind", "What The People Gon Say", "Back Rub", and "In The Booth In The Back In The Corner In The Dark".

Fantasy, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou! Titles include the classic "Down On The Corner" and a great version of "The Midnight Special" – plus "It Came Out Of The Sky", "Side Of The Road", "Effigy", "Don't Look Now", and "Fortunate Son". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Green RiverCome On Down (colored vinyl – with bonus track) ... LP
Jackpot, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first record by Green River – who were little-loved in their time, but are now legendary precursor to some of the most influential rock to come years later – featuring Mark Arm & Steve Turner before they'd go on to Mudhoney and Jeff Ament & Stone Gossard pre-Pearl Jam! Come On Down is the only Green River album to feature Turner, and this one's all the better for him still being in the mix, bringing more of the raucous garagey edge that would be a Mudhoney signature later on. Outside of the some the things coming out of the SST Records scene, there really wasn't a lot of bands so willfully out of step with trends as to meld the raw raging grit of punk with the sloppy yet pummeling hard rock as early as '84-'85, these guys really were trailblazers! Includes "Come On Down", "New God", "Swallow My Pride", "Ride Of Your Life", "Corner Of My Eye" and "Tunnel Of Love" – plus the bonus demo "Your Own Best Friend" on this great Jackpot Records version.

US 2-fer CD that brings together two of Gary Bartz's harder to find LPs on one CD – Juju Street Songs and Follow The Medicine Man. Both LPs feature a lineup that includes Hubert Eaves on electric piano, Stafford James on bass, and Andy Bey on vocals; and the material is pivotal stuff for Gary as he moves from his straight jazz spiritual stuff into a vein that is slightly more electric – but not too electric. Lots of nice funky moments with a righteous vibe, and the track list includes "Dr. Follow's Dance", "Standin' On The Corner", "Sing Me A Song Today", "Black Maybe", "Sifa Zote", and "Africans Unite".

✨✧ Terry CallierFire On Ice ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
One of the great albums from Terry Callier's "second chapter" on record – a time when he was working for Elektra Records, and doing work that was a bit straighter soul than before – and also slightly jazzy as well! The record's kind of a mix of jazzy grooves and smoother soul – typical for the fusion division of Elektra at the time, where Callier's hard-to-peg work was relegated. There's some really great songs on the record – and although the arrangements sometimes lack the sensitivity of the Cadet scorings of earlier years, they're still pretty great from a modern soul perspective. Richard Evans is producing and arranging the session, and Terry's still got help from a lot of Chicago friends like Minnie Riperton, Eddie Harris, and Phil Upchurch – all of whom help to keep the album relatively strong. Titles include some really nice originals, like "African Violet" and "Butterfly", both of which are some of Terry's best compositions from the time – plus "Love Two Love", "Martin St Martin", "Street Fever", and "Be A Believer".

✨✧ Bobby FewMore Or Less Few – Center Of The World Vol 3 ... LP
Center Of the World (France), Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Freely creative work from pianist Bobby Few – a talent whose work shows up on a number of key 70s sessions in Paris, but who hardly ever got to record as a leader on his own! The setting here is a trio one – with Bobby mostly on piano, plus a bit of voice and melodica – alongside Alan Silva on bass and Muhammad Ali on drums. The work echoes with inspiration from past recordings by both of those players, but also really shines in Few's inherently rhythmic approach to a tune – a style that's still pulsating and grooving in subtle ways, even when his lines are quite free. Titles include "More Or Less", "Few's Blues", "Simone", and "Chasing The Piano". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing score to this equally amazing film about the "girl next door" who suffers from "Psychopathia Sexualis". The score is a mixture of themes – to capture the mixture of mood swings running through the patient in the film. Some tracks are raunchy and jazzy, other tracks are fagile, fragmented, and jagged. Joe Greene did the whole thing, and although we don't know his stuff at all, our hats are off to him for this one! Track sinclude "Walk To Hell", "Rose Theme", "Melissa Glad", and "Melissa Pensive".

✨✧ JohnstonsColours Of The Dawn (US pressing) ... LP
Vanguard, 1971. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
The Johnstons got their start as a more traditional Irish folk group, but like most of their British Isles contemporaries at the end of the 60s, they were able to find a way to bridge the ancient and the current – by this point mixing traditional material with some very well-chosen contemporary cuts, all of which really flower even more wonderfully in the beautiful male/female vocal style of the group – who can hit a warm blend that's almost like the west coast post-folk modes of the Sunshine Pop generation, but much more cerebral. Production is nicely stripped-down at most points – with a focus on acoustic instrumentation, but also some slight elements on the second two albums that almost remind us of the hipness of Warner/Reprise productions for this sort of material.

Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A rare Stan Kenton session with a vocalist – one that features the little-known Jean Turner, a really great singer with a mix of soul and jazz that's a lot like Nancy Wilson! Kenton's a bit looser and more swinging here than usual – almost in an Oliver Nelson mode at times to match the style of Jean's vocals on the lively tunes, but sliding into more Kenton-like chromatic hues on the ballads in the set. Arrangements are by Stan, Lennie Niehaus, and Bill Holman – but Jean Turner's the real star of the set, and really captivates us with her confident vocals and wide range of styles! Titles include "Piel Canela", "Sleepy Lagoon", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Love Walked In", "You're The Top", and "It's A Big Wide Wonderful World". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny AceMemorial Album ... LP
Duke, Early 50s. Good ... $13.99
The only full album from Johnny Ace – a key figure in the Memphis scene of the 50s, and one of the first great casualties of rock and roll! Johnny was one of the first singers to record for the legendary Duke label, and worked in a mode that helped transform the smoother style of the west coast postwar R&B singers into a rougher, rawer mode that would pave the way for Memphis soul in years to come. And although Johnny died a tragic early death (and partially because of it), the impact of his work was tremendous, even in the few short years for which he recorded for Duke – leading to countless posthumous collections, mostly illegitimate, which often presented Johnny's work in less-than-superior conditions. This set is still the best – and features 12 tracks that Ace recorded for the Duke label. Titles include "How Can You Be So Mean", "My Song", "The Clock", "Cross My Heart", "Anymore", "Don't You Know", "Saving My Love For You", "So Lonely", and "Pledging My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball AdderleySomethin' Else ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Very Good- ... $149.99
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". LP, Vinyl record album

David Axelrod/Cannonball AdderleyMessiah ... LP
RCA, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
David Axelrod takes on Handel's Messiah – and the result is an amazingly complex set of music – very similar to his earlier albums on Capitol Records, and his Warner work with the Electric Prunes! If you love the Axe, you'll find plenty to love here – spare, dark orchestrations, often with a subtle hint of funk in the rhythms, some jazzy flourishes, and this bold sense of studio majesty that marks Axelrod as one of the most inventive producers of his time! The sound's one that gave birth to a whole generation of hip hoppers and beatheads – and the proceedings are conducted by Cannonball Adderley, with a feel that's similar to other Adderley/Axelrod high-concept sets – like Soul Of The Bible or Soul Zodiac. Titles include "Overture", "Worthy Is the Lamb", "Behold Recitative", "Comfort Ye My People", and "And The Angel Said Unto Them". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVirgin Ubiquity – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1981 ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
It's like a dream come true – 13 previously unissued recordings by Roy Ayers, all from the height of his glory years on Polydor! Roy's work from this time is some of our favorite ever – a burning blend of jazz, soul, and funk – handled with impeccable charm, and a level of soul that few other artists of the time ever matched. Roy's genius was strongly documented at the time by a series of excellent Polydor albums – but there was also a heck of a lot of great material that never saw the light of day, and which is every bit as great as the classics that we've come to know and love over the years. Hearing this set is incredible – like upping our already-massive appreciation of Roy's talents, and like finding a lost corner of soul music history that nobody's ever heard before. The tunes are all amazing – a great blend of jazzy soul, mellow soul, and dancefloor groovers – and the package is only the tip of the iceberg, from what we've been told! The full album does a great job to not cross over too much with the 12" singles previously issued in this "Virgin" series – and titles include "What's The T", "I Really Love You", "Sugar", "Mystery Of Love", "Green & Gold", "Brand New Feeling", "I Did It In Seattle", "I Just Wanna Give It Up", "Together Forever", "Boogie Down", "I Am Your Mind", and a great alternate version of "Mystic Voyage"!

Verve, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 34.99
Philip Bailey's looking hipper than usual on the cover – and he's sounding hipper than usual within – thanks to fantastic production help from Robert Glasper, Christian McBride, and Chick Corea – all artists who play on the record, and help give Bailey a really timeless sense of soul! The man himself needs no introduction – thanks to his long legacy in Earth Wind & Fire, and a range of great solo records too – but there's really something different, and something special taking place here – as Bailey pushes both his vocal range and sense of songform, working through music by Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Oscar Brown Jr, and even the Talking Heads – while also turning in some great songs of his own, co-penned with some of the album's collaborators. The instrumentation is served up by a dream group of jazz talents – Kamasi Washington on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Robert Glasper and Chick Corea on keyboards, Steve Wilson on saxes and flute, Lionel Loueke on guitar,and Christian McBride on bass – and although the record features guest vocals from Bilal and Casey Benjamin, it's Bailey's work that's the real main attraction. Titles include "We're A Winner", "Stairway To The Stars", "Just To Keep Your Satisfied", "Once In A Lifetime", "Billy Jack", "You're Everything", "Brooklyn Blues", "Sacred Sounds", and "Love Will Find A Way". LP, Vinyl record album
