Oscar Brown Jr.Sin & Soul ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $1.99
Trend-setting vocal work from Oscar Brown Jr – one of the hippest singers of his generation, and a vocalist who really took things to the next level in the 60s! Brown's got a sound that's partially influenced by the vocalese of Eddie Jefferson, Jon Hendricks, and other singers of the 50s – but his groove here is also a bit more fluid and lyrical too – thanks to some great lyrics penned by Oscar, some of which went on to become classics over the years. Like his predecessors, many of the tunes chosen by Brown got their start as jazz instrumentals, but sparkle anew here with fresh lyrics that really liven them up a lot – tales of sin and soul and a lot more, often delivered with a good sense of wit. Titles include great vocal versions of "Dat Dere", "Work Song", and "Afro-Blue", plus some of his great original compositions, like "Brown Baby", "But I Was Cool", and "Rags and Old Iron". The arrangements are great, with a nice jazzy sound – and the group includes the excellent Floyd Morris on piano! LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has some wear with peeling spots from tape removal over a large portion of the back.)

Philip BaileyLove Will Find A Way ... CD
Verve, 2019. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
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".

Jim BoldenCounting The Days Till Morning ... LP
Village Giant, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $23.99
A hip set of soul jazz vocals from the west coast – sung by an obscure vocalist, but one with a nicely hip approach – maybe a bit like Oscar Brown Jr at times! Jim takes on some familiar tunes, but does a pretty groovy job – and tracks include "Days Till Morning", "God Bless The Child", "Feeling Good", "Turn Around", "Quiet Place", and "Abraham Martin & John".

Art Turk BurtonAncestral Spirits ... CD
TNT, 2019. New Copy ... $11.99
A fantastic record from Chicago percussionist Art Turk Burton – a longstanding member of the AACM, but one who's been so busy teaching and helping out on the local scene, he's never gotten the international fame he deserves! Art works here in a large group that mixes contemporary modes and percussion traditions, vocal passages and instrumental lines – all with this sense of knowledge and righteousness that really tie Burton back to previous years in the Chicago scene! The great Ari Brown is in the set on tenor and soprano sax, and Edwin Daugherty is on alto and soprano – and Maggie Brown sings on the set for a bit, too – evoking the spirit of her father Oscar Brown Jr, who would have loved the vibe of the record. The group's also got the great Yosef Ben Israel on bass, keeping a strong groove amidst the other percussion and drums – and Eddie Beard plays piano and organ in the group. The title track "Ancestral Spirits" is a tribute to Phil Cohran and Muhal Richard Abrams – and other titles include great extrapolations on "All Blues", "Listen Here", "Soul Drummer", "Summertime", "Night In Tunisia", and "Killer Joe".

Gary McFarland/Grady Tate/Bobby ScottSlaves (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
An unusual little soundtrack to this obscure pre-Roots film about slavery – handled with some very nice touches from Gary McFarland, Bobby Scott, and Grady Tate! The music is penned by Scott, and is mostly in that hip blend of jazz and soul roots that he was using on some of his own 60s vocal work – but expanded a bit more here with the groovier styles of Skye Records, thanks to arrangements and conducting from Gary McFarland! The work's not as funky as you might expect, but is still plenty darn great – and there's a few instrumental numbers that are especially great here. Grady Tate sings on the vocal ones, often in the deep-voiced style of his own Skye albums – but with an approach that's a bit more down home and soul-based, which is a nice change – almost like Oscar Brown Jr at the best moments. A number of tracks are done in both instrumental and vocal versions – and titles include "Nightwind", "Slaves", "Black Lullabye", "Another Mornin", and "Pickin Cotton". CD
(Gatefold cover version – just like the original album!)

Osborne SmithWizardry Of Oz Smith ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $28.99
An obscure session of bluesy work for Capitol – sung by the enigmatic OZ Smith, an artist who recorded earlier under his real name of Osborne, for Argo Records, in a folksy mode. This session's got a down and dirty feel – blues recorded with some nice jazzy touches, in the style of some of Oscar Brown Jr's 60s work, and done with a small group that includes Thad Jones, Wally Richardson, and Bernard Purdie. Titles include "Go Down", "Careless Love", "12 Gates To The City", "Plenty Good Room", "Come On, My Love", and "Magnolia Tree". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing – in great shape!)

Dwight TribleMothership ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 27.99
One of the most amazing jazz vocalists of our generation returns here with an incredible group – a majestic combo to match all the spiritual inclinations in his music – with work from Kamasi Washington on tenor, Mark De Clive-Lowe on piano, Miguel Atwood Ferguson on viola, and both Carlos Nino and Derf Reklaw on percussion! Dwight Trible on his own is already more than enough to get us to run out and buy a record – but here, the combination of his unique voice with these musicians makes for an album that's an instant masterpiece – and one that even has lots of new colors and styles compared to some of Dwight's previous work! Songs include numbers by older west coast spiritual jazz heavyweights – like Horace Tapscott, Linda Hill, Nate Morgan, James Leary, and Jesse Sharps – mixed with some of Trible's own songs, and versions of work by Carmen Lundy, Oscar Brown Jr, and Donny Hathaway. From top to bottom, start to stop, the album's a treasure – with tracks that include "It's All About Love", "Thank You Master", "Song For My Mother", "Brother Where Are You", "Some Other Time", "These Things You Are To Me", "Desert Fairy Princess", and "Mothership".

Martin YarbroughMartin Yarbrough Showcase ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $0.99
A set of African-American folk from Chicago, from the city's racially integrated scene that spawned talents like Oscar Brown Jr. and Terry Callier. Martin Yarbrough's got a nice lively style, and he plays here in a style that's sort of a mix between Callier and Brown, with a lot of short folksy tracks that he wrote himself, like "Trust Me Mommy", "The Penguin", "Nine Fifteen", and "Speak For Yourself". The material's a little folksy, but the sound is great, and Yarbrough's got a great soulful voice. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Argo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Jimmy GrissomWorld Of Trouble – Lowdown Blues & Lonely Ballads ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only album we've ever seen from Jimmy Grissom – an obscure Chicago singer from the early 60s, one with a style that's somewhat like that of Oscar Brown Jr, but which also has some deeper, bluesier touches too! Grissom's relation to Brown is clearly laid out on the title track – a version of Brown's "World Of Trouble" – but the rest of the album has him working in a style that's got a great mix of jazz and R&B, one that features Jimmy sliding around the notes in a really gutbuckety way – creating a nice late nite sort of feel as he works with small combo backing that includes John Young on piano, Jay Peters on tenor sax, and George Eskridge on guitar. Titles include "The Cheater", "I'll Miss You", "Mood Indigo", "I Don't Want You To Love Me", and "I Believe I'll Make A Change". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dave Lambert/John HendricksSing Along & Swing Along With Dave Lambert/Evolution Of The Blues Song ... CD
United Artists/El (UK), 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the only full album ever recorded as a solo act by Dave Lambert, the vocalist that we know and love from the team of Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – but who's also a heck of a great singer on his own! As you may know from the group, Dave's got a slightly quirky vocal approach that warbles with the honesty of a good horn solo – a style that we might rank next to Bob Dorough's in its appeal, except for the fact that Dave, like his fellow members in the trio, has a much greater jazz-based quality – and on some of the tunes here, he improvises wonderfully and inflects the tunes in really unique ways. Players on the album aren't credited, but it sounds like it's probably Gildo Mahones on piano backing Dave up – and titles include 2 great wordless numbers titled "Blues" and "Short Blues Around The Broadway Bridge" – plus the tunes "Over The Weekend", "Autumn Nocturne", "All Alone", "Yesterdays", and "We Could Make Such Beautiful Music". Evolution Of The Blues, an early concept album from the great Jon Hendricks – one that tells the story of blues through jazz – all put together as a flowing story in music! Jon speaks and sings the whole tale – but also gets some help on vocals from Big Miller, Hanna Dean, and Jimmy Witherspoon – as well as great musical backing from the core Ike Isaac Trio, with solos by Pony Poindexter and Ben Webster! The music is mostly rooted in blues, but with a hipper jazz sensibility – almost in the way that Oscar Brown Jr and others were going back to the roots, but updating them for the 60s. Titles include "WPA Blues", "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child", "New Orleans", "If I Had My Share", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Please Send Me Someone To Love". CD
