Gloria BarnesUptown (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Maple/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the few rare albums on the Maple label – a 70s imprint that's known for some incredible funk and soul! Despite the title, the set's a record that sounds a lot more down-home than uptown – thanks to hard-wailing vocals from Gloria Barnes herself, and a nicely rough-edged quality to the instrumentation overall – supposedly handled by Lee Moses and The Ohio Players – the latter of whom wrote a few of the songs too! The album's one of the few on Maple – and in a way, it's almost a female soul counterpart to the Lee Moses record on the same label – done in a similar mix of rootsy modes and east coast indie soul – occasionally sweet at points, but mostly deep soul overall. Titles include "Gotta Get Away", "I Found Myself", "Old Before My Time", "I'll Go All The Way", "She Wants A Stand In", and "You Don't Mean It". CD

Jackie BrenstonRocket 88 – Jackie Brenston & His Delta Kings Featuring Ike Turner ... LP
Chess/P-Vine (Japan), Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
One of the only full sets we've ever seen to document the great run of singles cut by Jackie Brenston in the early 50s – work initially done in Memphis, as a real precursor to that city's soul scene – and later cut also in Chicago, with a really hard-wailing approach! The set's titled after "Rocket 88" – a track many folks call the first rock and roll song ever – recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis by Sam Philips, with Ike Turner as the real bandleader – before Chess took over the single, and then started recording Jackie up in Chicago. Titles include "Rocket 88", "I Want To See My Baby", "Jackie's Chewing Gum", "88 Boogie", "Pat Meat Is Greasy", "True Love", "The Blues Got Me Again", and "Lovin Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Cat/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $24.99
Sweet Miami funk from the team of George "Chocolate" Perry and Clay Cropper – one of the rarest TK albums from the time, and also one of the funkiest too! The sound here is slightly polished, but never too much – a bit more in the sound of bigger Florida groups, like Miami, with a tight groove overall, but still enough sharper funky bits on the edges! George plays bass and Clay handles guitar and keyboards – and the vocals seem to be sung by both parties, often in that slightly-flanged Miami style of the time. Titles include "My Uncle Funky", "Sweet Mary", "Cream Is Rising To The Top", and "Two Different Worlds" – plus the excellent mellow soul track "Free (I'll Always Be)", which has a nice sweet sound in the same vein as work by Milton Wright.

EscortsAll We Need Is Another Chance (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Alithia/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. Used Gatefold ... $24.99
The title and cover may seem a bit strange – but they make more sense when you know that The Escorts were all prisoners at the Rahway State Prison in New Jersey, where they were discovered by sweet soul producer George Kerr! Kerr really gave the group a great chance with this album – and recorded them live at the prison, in a weird tapestry of sound that interweaves great harmony soul numbers with some other bits that get at the grittier aspects of their life. The overall sound is right in the mode of Kerr's best productions – and sounds a fair bit like NJ soul of the Whatnauts/Moments era! Titles include "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow", "All We Need (Is Another Chance)", "I'm So Glad I Found You", "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", and "Look Over Your Shoulder". Killer stuff! CD features the bonus track "Just Another Lonely Night". CD

Stereophonk/P-Vine (Japan), 2018. Used ... $14.99
A fantastic full album from this ultra-cool group – a funky combo from contemporary Estonia – with ties to the Misha Panfilov Sound Combo that you might know from a sweet selection of recent 45s! Misha's in this group on bass, and also produced the record – with a raw sound that makes the whole thing a fantastic criss-crossing of deep funk and some freer jazz energy – all at a level that makes the whole thing completely fresh, and one of the hippest underground records we've heard in a while! These guys aren't really spiritual jazz, but they clearly get that energy – and although they play hard, they're not straight funk either – as they spin out on longer tracks and really know how to take solos – serving up excellent sounds on flute, tenor, alto, and a range of great keyboards – all set to nicely heavy drums, on titles that include "Nite City", "Envelope", "Garden Of Pleasures", "Queens", and "Troubled Mind" – and the Japanese bonus live track "Troubled Mind".

Wendell HarrisonReawakening – The Wendell Harrison Anthology ... CD
Tribe/P-Vine (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
A much-needed look at one of the greatest visionary players of the Detroit 70s scene – saxophonist Wendell Harrison, a really spiritual artist with a deeply soulful side! The set does a great job of bringing together the 2 sides of Harrison's career – his earlier righteous jazz sides for Tribe Records from the 70s, and his later work for his own label Wenha – mostly recorded in the early 80s with a laidback and mellow soul jazz sound! Harrison's a bit like Gary Bartz – in that he sometimes recorded in harder-edge styles with a really full-on sound, while at other times he could kick back and get more mellow – in a sweetly soulful style that often featured his work on the sax snaking around warm soul vocals. We actually love this second side of Harrison's career a heck of a lot, and the collection does a great job of pulling out the best of the best from this stretch – getting past some of the weaker cuts on a few of Harrison's 80s albums, to pull together the best ones – and sit them alongside a few tasty Tribe Records rarities! Titles include the 7 inch single "Farewell To The Welfare", plus "Consciousness", "Take Time Out", "The Wok", "Ginseng Love", "Pojo", "Tons & Tons Of BS", "Where Am I Vol 2 – Angry Young Man Part 1", and "Belle Isle".

Jimmy HughesSteal Away (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Vee Jay/P-Vine (Japan), 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Stellar work by Jimmy Hughes – one of those southern soul talents whose name you've heard, but can't always find on record! Jimmy's best known for his classic Muscle Shoals tune "Steal Away" – and that great number, plus many other similar ones, are presented on this obscure Vee Jay release – issued at a time when both that label and Chess were licensing a number of titles from Rick Hall's Fame studios. The sound is great – a key link in the southern scene of the 60s, and one that's often lost because it wasn't recorded for a bigger label, like Atlantic. Titles include "Steal Away", "Try Me", "I Want Justice", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Neighbor Neighbor", "I'm Getting Better", and "I'm Gonna Rise Again". CD

Benjamin JephtaEvolution Of An Undefined ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic album from Benjamin Jephta – and one that's maybe a bit different than some of his other recent work too! There's a more electric vibe to the set – maybe because Benjamin plays organ and keyboards, in addition to bass – and the music has this wonderful flow that's a bit like the Blue Note generation that's arisen in the wake of Robert Glasper – kind of this new 21st Century spirituality – a bit more compact than before, but extremely powerful in its conception! The group features additional keyboards from Kyle Shepherd and Bokani Dyer – plus guitar from Keenan Ahrends, trumpet from Marcus Wyatt, and tenor from Sisonke Xonti – plus guest vocals from Jitsvinger and Eden Myrrh. Titles include "Still I Rise (revisited)", "Dear Mr Hodge", "Evolution", "Song For Ellen Pakkies", "The Path", and "Identity". CD

Clifford JordanIn The World (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Strata East/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. Used ... $22.99
One of the most ambitious albums ever recorded from Clifford Jordan – a totally righteous little effort that was the first installment in the legendary Dolphy Series on the Strata East label! The set has Jordan working with a larger group than usual – an all-star array of players that includes Kenny Dorham and Don Cherry on trumpets, Julian Priester on trombone, Wynton Kelly on piano, Wilbur Ware and Richard Davis on bass, and drums from Roy Haynes, Ed Blackwell, and Albert Heath. The titles are originals by Jordan – long numbers that flow out slowly as they build up new musical ideas – all in a style that's somewhat laidback and spacious, very organic, and a bit like some of the best early 70s Impulse material by Archie Shepp. Album features 4 long tracks – "872", "Vienna", "Doug's Prelude", and "Ouagoudougou".

Harold McKinneyVoices & Rhythms Of The Creative Profile (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Tribe/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the most righteous albums ever issued by the always-righteous Tribe Records label of Detroit – a really collective effort, one that features ensemble vocals and spiritual jazz – all pulled together by pianist Harold McKinney! The album showcases a group named Voices Of The Creative Profile – formed by McKinney to accompany his Creative Profile instrumental group – and the overall style is a great blend of spiritual soul jazz that gives equal time to the voices and instruments in the set. Gwen McKinney heads up the vocal ensemble, and other players on the set include Wendell Harrison on flute, Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Billy Turner on percussion, and Ed Pickins on bass. Also features some cool moog from Darryl Dybka – and titles that include "In The Moog", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Dolphin Dance", "Heavenese", "Ode To Africa", "Out Of The Blues", and "Cornerstone". CD also features 2 bonus tracks pulled from a single – "Ode To Africa" and "Jelly Loa". CD

Ed MottaCriterion Of The Senses (Japanese version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99
A mindblowing record from the great Ed Motta – a set that continues all the warmer, English language elements of his recent albums – but one that also seems to have Ed hitting a new sort of sophistication too! The sound is incredible – almost out-AORing all the global AOR references that Motta's given us in both his own music, and some of the great collections he's done over the years – but there's also more of a special small combo vibe, with some instrumentation on the record that seems even more compelling than usual – and which includes some great guitar moments from Ed, in addition to Fender Rhodes. Take it from us, the whole thing is superb – as appealing to fans of the older soul tradition that Motta inherited in his youth, as it is to people who love jazzy vocals, and even those elite few of us who think that Steely Dan were one of the highest points in 20th Century music. (Ed's with us on that one, by the way!) Titles include "Lost Connection To Prague", "Novice Never Noticed", "The Required Dress Code", "X1 In Test", "The Tiki's Broken There", "Shoulder Pads", and "Your Satisfaction Is Mine". Great bonus tracks here – "Sweetest Berry (alt version organ)", "Sweetest Berry (alt version piano solo)", "Novice Never Noticed (alt solo)", "X1 In Test (alt take 2)", "The Tiki's Broken There (alt take)", and "Your Satisfaction Is Mine (inst version)".

Judy Pollak Featuring 33 1/3In Togetherness (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Chatsford/P-Vine (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
An underground mellow soul gem from the 70s – recorded on the Detroit scene with lead vocals by Judy Pollak, and backings by a very hip soul trio! 33 1/3 are way more than just an instrumental group – as they also harmonize behind Judy a fair bit – really elevating the soul quotient of the record, and almost making us wonder what they'd sound like on their own! Pollak is a pretty compelling singer, though – and has this light, airy style that's a bit like Asha Pulthi, but maybe without the many-octave range – which makes for a very unique contrast in the way she's paired with the group. Titles include "You're Mine", "Mr DJ", "Fascinating", "Billy's Coming Back", "Still In Love", "Come With Me", and "More Than Words". CD

Massive grooves from a very unique group! These guys play guitar and percussion all at once – in a flurry of fast grooves that rip away tremendously, but with a style that's still plenty darn earthy! There's definitely a bit of a global influence in the music overall, but the sound comes out as pure funk in the end – tightly focused, and very jamming – but not in a way that's ever too overindulgent. Some tracks feature vocals by singers Leslie Vos and Renold Shearman, and instrumentation includes guitars, organ, timbales, and congas – on titles that include "Gachero", "War", "Change The World", "Mack One", "Music In My Head", "High Winds", "Across The Ocean", "Nowhere To Hide", and "Guyana Groove".

Spontaneous OverthrowAll About Money (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Numero/P-Vine (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $14.99
An eerie bit of soul from the 80s scene in Newark – one that's got a special vibe that's all its own – partly due to a real love of echo from the producers! The set uses a fair bit of the electro elements you might know from 80s soul, especially the east coast underground type – but there's also a lot of processing on these elements, so that everything's all murky and moody in the deeper space of the album's style – very different than the crisp crackle of most albums from the time! The group are almost a street soul take on the early Detroit styles of George Clinton – not in the fullness of the funk ensemble, but in the darkness that hangs in the production – which seems to color even some of the more positive moments in the music. Titles include "If We Work It Out", "Get Yourself Together", "All About Money", "Take Out The Time", "Overthrow Groove", and "Why Did You Leave Me". CD

A blue-eyed soul classic from John Valenti – despite the black and white eye image on the cover! "Anything You Want" has a warm jazzy groove, great keyboards, and the kind of cresting vocals you'd expect to hear on one of Stevie Wonder's best cuts from the 70s! "Why Don't We Fall In Love" is nice too – romping, with a nice jazzy current underneath – almost with a Fantasy Records 70s sort of vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brazilian music in the 21st Century – great work from a scene that just keeps on growing in really fresh ways – amazing us with the dexterous combination of new ideas, sounds, and styles from the kinds of artists who are featured on this set! We've stocked a number of these artists on albums of their own, but the set provides a great way of dipping into this body of work as a whole – and most likely discovering some other new talents you might have missed.

✨✧ Lowell FulsomJewel Sessions 1969 to 1971 ... CD
Jewel/P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of funky blues by Lowell Fulsom – material recorded for the Jewel label after his years at Kent – and with a sound that's even more soul-drenched than before! Backing on many tracks is by a nice little combo with a very heavy drummer – which results in some nice hard snapping drum parts that recall some of Lowell's best funky work of the 60s – a continuation of his "Tramp" groove, but in ways that are even more open and hip. Straighter blues comes into play at times, but still carried off in a unique way that's without some of the cliches that were creeping into the music at the time – and which marks Lowell as a continually inventive artist as the 70s approached. The set features 41 titles in all – more than previous Jewel collections – with titles that include "Teach Me", which has a nice guitar/drum break in the intro, and a nice hard groove – plus "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Baby", "Stop & Think", "You're Gonna Miss Me", "Man On The Run", "This Feeling", "Stoned To The Bone", "I Started Out Wrong", "Every Second A Fool Is Born", "Man Of Motion", "My Baby", and "How Do You Want Your Man".

One of the hippest French albums we've heard in years – a laidback blend of hip hop and jazz that really lives up to the cover's homage to the legendary Black Jazz label! The Jazz Liberatorz have a great way with a groove – a style that's openly flowing and instrumentally jazzy – a bit like the vibe we first came to love in Tribe Called Quest, but almost even better given that much of the instrumentation is played live! Most tracks have warm keyboards rolling along with the beats – and the rhythms are often gently acoustic in nature, with a depth of soul that sets these guys apart from most of their contemporaries. Guests on the record include J Sands, Lizz Fields, Sadat X, Apani B Fly, Fat Lip, and T Love – and titles include "Indonesia", "The Process", "Genius At Work", "I Am Hip Hop", "Ease My Mind", "Clin D'Oeil", "The Return", and "Speak The Language".

P-Vine (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't worry too much about the "bitter grooves" or "AOR" in the title – and just focus on the "soul" – as the set's overflowing with great rare groove tracks from the 70s, very much in the best sort of style that we've loved from P-Vine label reissues over the years! Tracks include a very special slice of work from the American underground – records from decidedly indie sources, but which also have a nice sort of polish and professionalism – never slick or commercial, but always tight and really well done! If you're a fan of this sort of material, you'll probably recognize a few names in the tracklist – but as always with P-Vine, the overall track selection and combination are a really big part of the album's appeal. Titles include "My Girl Friday" by L'il Albert, "Everything You Do" by Positive Force, "No Love In The Morning" by Thelma Houston, Nightfall" by Cynthia Schloss, "Our Love Will Last" by Spaceark, "Too Soon Your Old" by Penny Goodwin, "Got To Be Lovin You" by Erik Tagg, "I Said It Before" by Touch Of Class, "What A Lovely Way To Spend A Lifetime" by Ted Coleman Band, "Lonely People" by People's Pleasure, "Come With Me" by Judy Pollak & 33 1/3, "Heaven" by Matthew Larkin Cassell, and "Love Love Love" by JR Bailey.

Alfonzo's kicking back on the cover – posing a bit like Michael Jackson on the cover of Thriller – a record that's maybe a pretty good comparison for the sound of this rare set too! The tunes are upbeat, catchy, and perfectly fit for the lightly crackling style of Alfonzo's vocals – often nice and funky down at the core, with basslines that bump along, but never overwhelm – leaving plenty of room for Alfonzo's warm charms in the grooves! Clay McMurray produced, arranged, and recorded the album – and he's got a hell of an ear throughout – really making the kind of music that would have gotten Alfonzo Jones to the top of the charts, if the whole thing had got wider exposure. Titles include "Change The World", "Girl You Are The One", "Don't Stop This Feeling", "Your Booty Makes Me Moody", "Ready For Your Love", and a great cover of "Low Down". CD

Strata East/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime spiritual jazz from Strata East – one of the label's rarest recordings, and one of its hippest too! The set has an incredibly righteous feel – a blend of keyboards, saxes, guitar, percussion, and vocals that steps off with a very deep feel – one that's heavy on the best post-Coltrane modes of expression in jazz, and which really takes advantage of the freedoms of the Strata setting to open up the sound in really beautiful ways! Beatrice Parker handles the vocals, with a very warm and spiritual style that's not unlike some of the early, righteous recordings by Dee Dee Bridgewater – and other group members include Khaliq Abdul Al Rouf on saxes, Bevin Turnbull on keyboards, Mashujaa Aliye Salamu on guitar, Leroy Seals on bass, and Fred Kwaku Crawley on a host of hip percussion instruments. There's a slight undercurrent of funk on a few tunes, but most tracks are focused more in a soaring, spiritual groove – with titles that include "Circles", "The Sojourner", "Peace (Salaam)", "Traces Of Trane", "Ecstasy", "Music Is Nothing But A Prayer", and "Malika".

The whole thing's got this deep, righteous approach to funk – somewhere in the same territory as Norman Whitfield with the Temptations, but grittier overall!

✨✧ Juju (Oneness of Juju)Live At 131 Prince Street ... LP
P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed slice of work from Juju – the group who later transformed into spiritual funk ensemble Oneness Of Juju! Juju only recorded two full albums in the early 70s, so this unissued live set is a key addition to their catalog – and the whole thing's got this bold quality that's much more jazz-based, and often more avant than the group's later work – more in line with work in the tradition of the AACM, or some of the earliest loft jazz talents. No surprise, the set was recorded at Ornette Coleman's space on the lower east side in the early 70s – with the mighty Plunky Nakbinde on saxes and flute, sounding a lot more searing than any of his records from the 80s onward – plus Babatunde on percussion, Lon Moshe on vibes and flute, and Al-Hammel Rasul on keyboards. There's a bit of vocalizations, and lots of percussion from group members too – and the sound is very spiritual, with touches of more percussive Afro-centric playing. Includes a great version of Eddie Palmieri's "Azucar Para Ti", plus "At Least We Have A Horizon Now", and "Live Mozambique". LP, Vinyl record album

The record is definitely a jazz set, but has that Robert Glasper generation way of really opening things up to new soulful frontiers – working with a fantastically deft rhythm trio who can cascade effortlessly, then change their groove on a dime – while Kuroda matches their energy with his work on trumpet, alongside Jamaal Sawyer on tenor and Corey King on trombone! Pianist Takeshi Ohbayashi also plays Fender Rhodes, and the album features Rashaan Carter on bass and Adam Jackson on drums – on titles that include "Jafro", "Pepper Caramel", "Trunk Bay", "Red Corner", "Bite Than Bark", and "Grappa".

The set has an incredibly righteous feel – a blend of keyboards, saxes, guitar, percussion, and vocals that steps off with a very deep feel – one that's heavy on the best post-Coltrane modes of expression in jazz, and which really takes advantage of the freedoms of the Strata setting to open up the sound in really beautiful ways! Beatrice Parker handles the vocals, with a very warm and spiritual style that's not unlike some of the early, righteous recordings by Dee Dee Bridgewater – and other group members include Khaliq Abdul Al Rouf on saxes, Bevin Turnbull on keyboards, Mashujaa Aliye Salamu on guitar, Leroy Seals on bass, and Fred Kwaku Crawley on a host of hip percussion instruments. There's a slight undercurrent of funk on a few tunes, but most tracks are focused more in a soaring, spiritual groove – with titles that include "Circles", "The Sojourner", "Peace (Salaam)", "Traces Of Trane", "Ecstasy", "Music Is Nothing But A Prayer", and "Malika".

Sidney/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great take on the Marvin Gaye tune – and one of the few rare tracks recorded by Milwaukee's soul singer, Penny Goodwin! "What's Goin On" is tone with jazz piano, which gives the whole thing a really different vibe – although Penny soars up and down in the same groove as the original arrangement, scatting nicely before taking the lyrics straight! The flipside features a wonderful remake of Gil Scott-Heron's "Lady Day & John Coltrane" – done by Penny with an upbeat, jazzy flair – and a sweet organ solo in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tribe/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most classic albums on the Tribe Records label from Detroit – music that was too heavy for most of the world when it was issued in the 70s – but which has gone onto achieve legendary status over the years! Reedman Wendell Harrison leads the group in a set of soaring, spacious, righteous tunes – with great help from Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, and assorted other instruments, which he and Harrison play in the best AACM tradition. Phil Ranelin's also in the group on trombone – and other players include Charles Eubanks on keyboards, Ike Daney on drums, and Will Austin on bass – and the album also features some spoken passages by the Black Messengers, Oba and Vajava. The whole thing's fantastic – that strong collaborative spirit that graced the best part of the American jazz underground of the time – and titles include "Mary Had An Abortion", "Vol II Angry Young Man (parts 1 & 2)", "Consciousness", and "Rebirth".

Tribe/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Genius work from the Detroit underground of the 70s – one of the greatest records ever on the now-famous Tribe Records label, and a masterpiece of soul, jazz, and righteous spirit! The session's headed by tenor player Wendell Harrison – and it's got an all-star Motor City lineup that includes Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Phil Ranelin on trombone, Jeamel Lee on vocals, Charles Eubanks on electric piano, and Charles Moore on flugelhorn. The tracks have a spacious spiritual approach that recalls some of the later Archie Shepp on Impulse – a blend of soul jazz with slight touches of electric instrumentation, some vocals, and a very progressive spirit overall – stepping proud in the new freedoms of the 70s, yet still swinging and very groovy. Titles include "Angela's Dilemma", "What We Need", "How Do We End All Of This Madness", "Merciful", and "Beneficent". CD

P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little set that definitely offers up another page of Incognito – as the Japanese-only collection mixes a few older tracks with more recent numbers we haven't seen on other albums! Bluey and the group are as fantastic as ever – and in a way, these later mature tracks almost have Incognito growing into warmly spiritual territory that's all their own – with Bluey emerging almost as a Stevie Wonder for the 21st Century – effortlessly able to blend together jazz, funk, and soul into a sublime new groove of his own! Tony Momrelle turns in a guest appearance on "Until The 12th Of Never" – and other titles include "Feel The Real", "Jam On The Tyne", "Pyramids On Mars", "Craziest High", "Village Life", "Zaius (orig Incognito mix)", and "To Prove My Love".

Silver Cloud/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet mellow stepper from Lil Albert – a singer who first got things going in the Hawaiian group Society Of Seven – but who hits some completely different, completely great territory here! The set was recorded in mid 70s LA, with arrangement and production by Ernie Freeman – and Albert's got backing from some of the cream of that scene's studio musicians, who bring some great jazzy touches to the music! There's definitely an ear here towards an AOR approach, but the result is more like the best indie mellow soul of the period – well-produced, but never overdone – nicely understated, in a way that makes the lead vocals sound completely sublime. Titles include "My Girl Friday", "Movin In", "Daydreamin", "Outrageous", "River Of Steel", "Loose Woman", and "Roads". CD

Research/P-Vine (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky jazz, but with plenty of keyboards that really trip things out – lots of long moogy runs that really make things sound great – especially when they're balanced out by Fender Rhodes! These guys seem to start in the territory of 70s electric jazz – especially the funkier sort – but they're also open to some 80s modes too, and even seem to point at times towards the spacey instrumental keyboard club that would show up on the European scene at the end of the 70s! About half the record has vocals, but the keyboards seem to be the main attraction – lined up nicely alongside guitar, bass, drums, and congas. Titles include "The Magnificent Moon", "Im Blau", "Zwango Zop", "Phase", "Two Horizons", and "The Gloves Don't Bite". The Japanese CD pressing also includes the non-album track "Phase II" clocking in over 11 minutes! CD

TSG/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The debut album from Cynthia Schloss – a reggae singer who'd go on to bring a whole new level of soul to Jamaican music! In fact, the album's maybe half reggae, and half soul – delivered by Cynthia with a range that would have been right at home in American soul in the early 70s, especially given that the pace of most tracks is a lot more laidback than some of the disco work that was taking over America at the time! Yet the grooves aren't exactly the usual Jamaican style, either – as they've got a bubbling vibe and upbeat quality that almost reminds us a bit of crossover soul from the same time – a bit like some of the best work on RCA that would peak on AM radio, with a real universal appeal that's only furthered by Schloss' vocals. Titles include "Love Forever", "I Won't Cry", "There's A Fire", "Red Rose", "Winston B", "Guava Jelly", "Hurry To Me", and "Nightfall". CD

Amazing!

It's a stellar bit of jazzy soul with the same production vibe that's characterized Roy's best work – but made all the more sublime thanks to Sylvia Striplin's beautifully fragile and soulful vocals, which sound a bit like Minnie Riperton's at times – but also has a fuller, richer quality too. The record's got arrangements by Sylvia, Roy, and James Bedford (who also recorded for Uno Melodic), and it includes classics like "Give Me Your Love", "You Can't Turn Me Away", "Look Towards The Sky", "All Alone", and a great cover of Roy Ayers' "Searchin".

Brazilian music in the 21st Century is alive and well – and the past two decades may well represent the most creative period in that nation's scene since the early 70s! We've stocked plenty of recent Brazilian albums over the years – but this book is maybe the first we've ever seen to provide guidance to the many waves of music – done in a similar style to other Japanese "disc guides", with images of record covers, listings of artists, titles, and other details – plus short reviews in Japanese! As with the jazz, funk, and other books of this nature – you'll find plenty to understand, even if you can't read Japanese – and the whole thing is very visual, with reproductions of hundreds of record and CD covers in full color. Chapters look at recent recordings in modes that include Samba Soul/Urban, Bahia, Nordeste, MPB, Hip Hop/Funk, Samba, Instrumental, and other styles – and the book is 191 pages, paperback, and full color throughout.

Jimmy Briscoe & The Little BeaversMy Ebony Princess ... LP
Pi Kappa, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
An east coast harmony classic from Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers – a sweetly-voiced young soul group with a really positive sound! Jimmy and the group have a groove that's more mature than some of the other young soul acts to emerge in the wake of the Jackson Five – and the tracks on the set are a great balance of gentle ballads and more forceful numbers, done in modes that share a lot with some of the best New Jersey groups of the time, particularly those on the All-Platinum label. Production is full and rich – never too much so overpower the vocals, but with some wonderfully chosen instrumental touches from maestro Paul Kyser – but it's Jimmy's heartbreaking vocals that really drive the set. Titles include "My Ebony Princess", "I Only Feel This Way When I'm With You", "Theme From Forever", "Where Were You", "Pack Up", "My Fallin Angel", "Together", and "Country to the City".

Syl JohnsonComplete Mythology (6LPs & 4CDs box set) ... LP
Numero, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 6LPs/4CDs ... $68.99 79.98
A really really amazing package – the full story of the early years of Syl Johnson – one of the funkiest soul singers to ever come from Chicago! Syl's music has become the stuff of legend over the years – initially collected in rare funky 45s and two even rarer albums – then sampled heavily, compiled frequently, and spun out to a huge global audience that Johnson never had back in the day. Yet throughout the years, things were never done properly – and certainly with any sense of history or continuity that would unite the music – until now. The folks at Numero have really outdone themselves this time – not just by including both CD (4 of them) and LP (6 of those) versions of the music in the set – but also by coming up with one of the most attractive, uniquely packaged records we've ever seen! The box and booklet alone are completely beautiful – the latter filled with vintage photos, personal recollections by Syl, and some great Numero writing – not to mention much-needed details on the recordings within. And the LPs each come in their own jackets – two of which mimic the original Twinight albums, the other four of which create Shama, Trip, and Federal label albums of Johnson's music – records that didn't exist back in the 60s, but which look as if they've come from a time machine! The CDs come in a very cool LP-styled jacket – and the whole thing slides together as sweetly as the funky music within. None of the Hi Records material is included – just material from labels that include Twilight/Twinight, King/Federal, Shama, TMP/Ting, Zachron, One-Derful, Cha Cha, Special Agent, and P-Vine – including a number of tracks never issued before. We could write for hours about how great this set is – but honestly, one look, or one listen, and you'll be hooked! LP, Vinyl record album

The group at this point features keyboardist Claudio Medeiros – who really adds a lot to their sound with his tight work on organ, clavinet, and electric piano! The tracks have a much more expansive sound than before – jazzily grooving in the Brazilian fusion mode of the 70s, touched with all the brightness of the west coast scene. Titles include "Circles", "A Briza", "Slick", "Madalena", "Salt Song", "Carinhoso", and "Ponteio/Asa Branca". LP, Vinyl record album

Harry NilssonHarry/Nilsson Sings Newman ... CD
RCA (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Two often wonderful earlier titles by of one of the great oddball songwriters of the last forty years on one CD! The Harry album is certainly the bridge between Nilsson's two previous wildly bombastic LPs, and the slightly more subdued material that popped up on the Schmilsson and later records. Harry runs the gamut from the cute and gentle "The Puppy Song" and "Mournin' Glory Song", to the more gonzo stuff. Other tracks include "Mother Nature's Son", "Fairfax Rag", and "I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City". Nilsson Sings Newman, written by a then fairly unknown Randy Newman was certainly an odd project to undertake for an artist generally regarded as a songwriting talent, but boy is the world better because of it! The whole album is a delicate masterpiece, utilizing Nilsson's great voice to its best-ever effect, and completely disregarding the sometimes self-indulgent trappings of his own writing in favor of Newman's more earnest, and endearingly cynical New Orleans bred pop. Beautiful! Tracks include "Vine St." (also recorded by Van Dyke Parks), "Love Story", "Caroline", Cowboy", and "Living Without You". There's also two bonus tracks not on the original LPs – "Waiting" and "Snow". CD

Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about!

The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame – and it's got an unusual style that's equally appealing to fans of funk, and fans of clubbier music – lots of tight playing, hard riffing, and longer grooves that soar along with impeccable grace. The whole thing's almost like the classic Wood Brass & Steel album – but with some rougher edges that make it even better! Includes the great tracks "Vine City" and "Messin Around", both of which are very long funk tracks, plus shorter cuts that are just as funky, like "Down Underground", "Freddie's Alive and Well", and "Buttermilk Bottom". Don't pass this up, it's a funky monster classic! LP, Vinyl record album

Bear Family (Germany), 1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds from the great Bonnie Guitar – a really unique artist who was part jazz singer, part California country – and very much at home on these rare early singles! Most of the music was recorded in 50s Los Angeles – and has a way of mixing country twang with hipper, more sophisticated styles – always with this great level of production that has a nice current of darkness overall, which brings Bonnie's vocals and guitar together in this harmonic style that's not too far from other 50s great like Les & Mary Paul, or The Chordettes – neither of whom are a direct comparison, but who might make for great listening next to this CD. Many of these tracks haven't seen the light of day since their original issue on 78rpm discs – many of which are pictured in the very thick booklet, which also has lots of notes on the music – and the set features a total of 34 tracks, with titles that include "Hello Hello Please Answer The Phone", "If You See My Love Dancing", "Clinging Vine", "Open The Door To Your Heart", "Heart's Desire", "Please My Love", "Midget Auto Blues", "I Lost My Turkey", and "Don't Keep Me Waitin".

Amazing, simply amazing – and a record that's way more than we were expecting! The Roots team up here with legendary Miami soul singer Betty Wright – in music that comes from a film project, but which really stands up brilliantly on its own – as a record that may well be Betty's best recording in decades! Questlove helped Betty with production, and the sound is a brilliant update on that 70s Miami Funk mode that first brought Wright to fame – lots of lean, snakey, TK-styled grooves – played by Roots members with a slight ear towards contemporary modes, but a damn keen appreciation for 70s soul all the way through! And although the set features a few famous guests – Snoop Dog, Lil Wayne, Joss Stone, and Lenny Williams – it's Wright who really blows our mind here – a hell of a singer after all these years, nestled in a perfect set of tunes to make her sparkle all over again. Titles include "Old Songs", "Real Woman", "In The Middle Of The Game", "Surrender", "Grapes On A Vine", "So Long So Wrong", "You & Me Leroy", "Look Around", and "Hollywould". LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing blues from the Georgia scene of the 70s – music that hardly feels like other versions of the genre coming out at the time – partly thanks to the raw recording quality of these tracks! Most of the music features just a singer and guitar – sometimes just one or the other – and the only other rhythm on the record comes from spoons or a bit of drums – which should give you an idea of the lean, rootsy sound of the record! The quality of the music is great, though – and the record feels like some older gem on Arhoolie or Yazoo. Titles include "James Boogie" and "Good Morning Little School Girl" by James Davis, "The Howlin Wolf" and "Old Red #2" by Jim Bunkley, "Poor Boy" and "If I Lose Let Me Lose" by John Lee Ziegler, "Love Blues" and "Hoochie Coochie Wagon" by William Robertson, and "Have You Ever Seen Peaches Grow On A Sweet Potato Vine" by Jimmy Lee Williams.

Flying Dutchman, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Lost Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and an album that may well blow away better-known work by groups like Malo, Azteca, or El Chicano! The album's near-perfect right from the start – and brings in plenty of New York elements to the groove, thanks to the inclusion of a heady amount of jazz alongside the soul, Latin, and funk elements in the grooves! The legendary Teo Macero produced and arranged – and really takes a lot of care in the studio to focus the overall energy of the tremendous talents on the record – players who include Hadley Caliman on flute and tenor, Steve Marcus on soprano sax, Benny Velarde on timbales, and Francisco Aguabella on congas – plus the trio of Cesar, Mark Levine, and Merl Sanders on keyboards. Most numbers have this really full, flowing groove – jazzy, but with a strong emphasis on the rhythms – and often touched with some great work on guitar that echoes the Santana-inspired sound of the generation, yet never in a rock way at all. Linda Tillery sings vocals on a few numbers, but the main focus is definitely instrumental – and the whole album's great – with cuts that include "See Saw Affair", "Azucar", "Descarga", "The Devil & Montezuma", "Gotta Get Away", and "Bridges".

Lovely, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
One of the most important records from composer Robert Ashley – and one that's got a compact approach that helped it circulate a lot more than some of Ashley's larger operas! This piece is very much like those – with Ashley's unique spoken approach – part poetry, part performance art – but the sound is more stripped-down, and in the spirit of the young downtown New York generation of Laurie Anderson and Phillip Glass – served up with great instrumental help from contemporary Blue Gene Tyranny, who plays piano, moog, and clavinet – with some additional tablas for accompaniment! The whole thing was recorded at the important Center For Contemporary Music on the west coast, at Mills College – and is almost a Bay Area answer to some of the more compelling art records from the New York scene. The record is divided into 2 parts – "The Park" and "The Backyard" – both filled with a hypnotic mix of voice, keyboards, and tablas! LP, Vinyl record album

Roy hits the dancefloor with one of his first up-tempo funk numbers "Brother Green", a catchy groover with lots of clavinet, and the massive "Life Is Just A Moment", a storming 2-part number that rolls along with a pounding almost house-like groove. "Mystic Voyage" shows the sweet jazzy side of Roy – as it's a vibes-heavy instrumental with a light stepping groove, perfect for the mellow direction he'd take on other records. The album also features some great off-beat funk numbers that recall earlier albums – including the break-heavy "Spirit Of Doo Doo", plus "Funky Motion" and "The Black Five". LP, Vinyl record album

AzymuthDemos 1973 to 1975 – Vol 1 ... LP
Far Out (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Amazing early work from Azymuth – rare demo recordings done at the home studio of keyboardist Jose Roberto Bertrami, in the short space before the group issued their legendary debut! The tracks here are as much jazz funk as they are the later modes that Azymuth would put forth – killer instrumentals that are really driven by great keyboard lines from Bertrami, who'd already been making music in other formats for years – and who works here on Fender Rhodes, Arp, Clavinet, Hammond, and a range of other keyboards too! The drums are fantastic, too – handled by a young Ivan Conti, who gets help on percussion from an early fourth member of the group, Ariovaldo Contesini – and as you might guess, the incredible basslines of Ivan Mamao Conti really help the whole thing groove. All material is very well-recorded – these aren't rough or unfinished tracks at all – and the whole thing should just be thought of as a first chapter for the group, right before they started putting out their famous records. Titles on this first volume include "Prefacio", "Castelo", "Melo Do Cuica", "Xingo", "Laranjeiras", "Eqiupe 68", and "Unknown Song For Mario Telles". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy BondBilly Bond y La Pesada – Vol 3 & 4 ... CD
Cloud Forest (New Zealand), 1972/1973. New Copy ... $4.99
A wildly eclectic brew of driving heaviness, looser trippiness, and even some delicate moments from Billy Bond – a more freewheeling and ambitious mix of post psychedelic wildness from Brazil's Billy Bond & co! Volume 3 from 1972 is made up of 2 lengthy suites, " Lado 1 – Acustico" and "Lado 2 – Eectrica Camplementaria". The former is surprisingly lean in spots, with some folky psychedelia in the blender. The latter is full of abrupt, dramatic stop-start dynamics. Volume 4 from '73 includes "No Nos Paran Mas", "Hacia Algun Lugar", Gracias Al Cielo", "Estamos Hartos", "Ano 1939", "Algo Esta Por Suceder" and more. This one is more of a wild and wooly rock & roll set, and a deliciously unpredictable one! CD

Brewer & ShipleyWeeds ... CD
Kama Sutra/Elemental (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $7.99
The duo of Michael Brewer and Tom Shipley are mostly remembered for their one big radio hit – but the pair have a wonderful sound that's ripe for rediscovery – right up there with much more frequently-lauded contemporaries from the west coast scene! The pair harmonize in this great post-folk style – acoustic guitars mixed with lots of other grooviness in the instrumentation – never too roots rock, and instead bouncing around with a lot more canyon coolness – which keeps things really interesting all the way through! The duo perform a great version of Jim Pepper's "Witchi Tai To", with tablas for percussion – and other titles include "Lady Like You", "Rise Up", "Boomerang", "People Love Each Other", "Oh Sweet Lady", and "Pig's Head".

James BrownJames Brown Sings Out Of Sight (white cover) ... LP
Smash, 1964. Very Good ... $69.99
One of the stranger James Brown albums from the 60s! The record is one of the only vocal albums he cut for the Smash label – and it was issued during a time when James was strangely contracted to two labels – King and Smash. His dual contract situation was that he couldn't record any new original vocal material for Smash – apart from the title track "Out Of Sight", which had already been snuck on the market, and which is a sinister funky track built along the same lines as "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" (not on this album.) Apart from that track, the rest of the material on the record is more traditional R&B and pop stuff – sung by James in a strong soul style. Titles include "Somethin Else", "Nature Boy", "Maybe The Last Time", "I Wanna Be Around", "I Got You", and "Good Rockin Tonight". The liner notes are great, too – with some pretty interesting information on Brown's career, and African-American politics. LP, Vinyl record album

Miquel BrownManpower ... LP
TSR, 1983. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Plenty of Manpower from Miquel Brown– the Canadian club singer who scored big with the classic "So Many Man So Little Time" club cut in the early 80s – then followed it up with this full album of late disco grooves! Brown's vocal approach is in the higher side of the spectrum – and the cuts take off on the style of some of the Canadian disco modes for divas from a few years before – but feature some instrumentation that's a bit more 80s, especially in the keyboards and beats. There's a few older soul touches at times – and the album's produced by Ian Levine and arranged by co-producer Fiachra Trench – usually in a mode that's somewhat poppy and hook-heavy. Titles include "So Many Men So Little Time", "Manpower", "Beeline", "Sunny Day", "He's A Saint He's A Sinner", and "Maybe He Forgot". LP, Vinyl record album

Red CallenderSwingin' Suite (blue & pink cover) ... LP
Modern, 1955. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Beautiful bass work from 50s LA player Red Callender – heard here on this classic side recorded for the Modern imprint. Swingin Suite is easily one of Red's tightest sessions – a date that has Callender's basslines strongly leading a nonet of players that includes Harry Jones on trumpet, John Ewing on trombone, Willie Green on alto sax, and Buddy Collette on flute and tenor. Collette's lines have a nice sharp edge throughout, and soar out beautifully amidst the bigger backings – and although a "suite", the whole session's got a much more relaxed feel than that compositional title might make you think. Tracks include "On Again", "Greenery", "Pastel", "Dancers", "October Blue", "Bihari", "Skyline", and "Outlines". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest albums by this sweet east coast vocal group – also known to folks as the Golden Apples album, because of the crate full of gold-covered apples on the cover. The album's got a wonderful mellow harmony sound – arranged and produced by Van McCoy, much more in the style of his early uptown soul work than some of his other more overblown mid 70s work. Features the sublime stepper "When You're Young & In Love", the hit "I'm Gonna Walk Away From Love", and the cuts "Until We Said Goodbye", "Keep In Touch", "Angel Don't Fly Away", and "Hook it Up".

Al Cohn, Dexter Gordon, Barry Harris, et alSilver Blue ... LP
Xanadu, 1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Some of the most cooking work of the 70s from Dexter Gordon – and that's saying a lot, given all his overseas sessions and late-life work for Columbia Records! The format here is different than both of those, though – in that it's both a sharp hardbop set, with a real back-to-basics vibe – but also one that has much more of an overall group feel, instead of some of the longer-form solo vehicles that Gordon recorded for Steeplechase Records. There's definitely a blowing session vibe – tracks are long, and there's multiple soloists who each get extended time in the spotlight – but there's also a careful sense of structure, brought to the record no doubt by producer Don Schlitten – who'd handled classic dates in the past for Prestige. The group features both Gordon and Al Cohn on tenors, Blue Mitchell and Sam Noto on trumpets, Barry Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – a hell of a lineup that really makes magic on "On The Trail", "Allen's Alley", and "Silver Blue".

John Coltrane/Archie SheppNew Thing At Newport ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $28.99
An essential piece of 60's avant garde jazz that often gets overlooked because the album is split between two different leaders – but with John Coltrane and Archie Shepp at the helm, what leaders they be! Shepp leads a quartet that includes Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Barre Phillips on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and the music is some of his best from the 60's. Hutcherson is haunting, and Shepp plays in a beautifully restrained style that brings out all of his best elements, without any of the indulgence that sometimes mars his playing. The group plays all original tracks, including "Rufus", "Le Matin Des Noire", and "Scag". Coltrane's quartet with Tyner, Garrison, and Jones adds one additional long track to the album, the lively "One Down One Up". A great set, and one not to pass up! LP, Vinyl record album

Hank CrawfordDon't You Worry Bout A Thing ... LP
Kudu, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Sweet soulful jazz from reedman Hank Crawford – one of his killer Kudu sessions from the 70s – all of which really helped Hank redefine his sound! The setting here is large and full – put together beautifully by Bob James, with that sense of space for the soloist that makes his CTI/Kudu arrangements so crucial – and light years ahead of what other arrangers were doing at the time. The tracks are longish, but never overdone – and the record has all the soulful alto sounds of Crawford's 60s work at Atlantic, but with a definite 70s bent overall. James plays Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and other players include Joe Farrell on tenor and flute, Idris Muhammad and Bernard Purdie on drums, and Richard Tee on additional keyboards. Titles include "Jana", "Sho Is Funky", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "Groove Junction", and "All In Love Is Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

A record that's way better than you might guess – and a key document of the creative orchestrations of the great John Dankworth! The set features tunes inspired by the writings of Charles Dickens – but the writing and interpretation is 60s modern all the way through – thanks to a crack lineup that includes Tubby Hayes and Dick Morriseey on tenors, Ronnie Ross on baritone, Tony Coe on clarinet, Kenny Wheeler and Jimmy Deuchar on trumpets, and Dankworth himself on some mighty nice alto! The session swings strongly – and surprisingly nice solos dart out amidst the otherwise goofy concept of the record – thanks to Dankworth's hand for a good arrangement and a nice sense of swing! Titles include "Weller Never Did", "The Prologue", "Ghosts", "The Artful Dodger", and "Dodson & Fogg". LP, Vinyl record album

A revolutionary groove from the John Danser Octet – a cool funky jazz combo with a really unique sort of feel! The set's got a tightly-arranged feel, but is still nice and rough around the edges – hardly the slick jazz you might expect from the date, thanks to an acoustic lineup, and a choppy way of hitting the rhythms that makes almost every track a groover – and which gives the album a feel that's almost like some small combo project from a larger funky big band! The horns are great, but always nice and laidback – and include trombone, trumpet, and some sweet flute at points – and the piano often leads the grooves with a really sly sort of feel – almost modal, but kind of in its own space too. Titles include "Revelli Rock", "Monkey", "Jazz Waltz", "5 x 5", "Talkin Pretty/Michelle", "Boo Be Da", "Cool", and "Carmina". LP, Vinyl record album

A 70s 2LP set that brings together some key material from Miles first few years at Prestige – tunes that were mostly issued on the albums Early Miles and Conception. The work is about as classic as you can get from Miles' early years – with players that include Sonny Rollins on tenor, Bennie Green on trombone, Jackie McLean on alto, John Lewis or Walter Bishop on piano, and Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, or Kenny Clarke on drums. Some tracks get quite long for the time, and the set includes the classic "Dig", a great reading of "It's Only A Paper Moon", and the tracks "Denial", "Down", "Morpheus", "Bluing", "Conception", "Willie The Wailer", "Tasty Pudding", "For Adults Only", and "Out Of The Blue".

Moody magic from Miles Davis and Gil Evans – one of the pair's most perfectly poised albums together, and a set with a slight bossa nova undercurrent!

There's almost a soundtrack sort of depth to the record, but the solos still keep the jazz element nicely in focus – and titles include "Summer Night", "Wait Till You See Her", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", "Song #1", "Song #2", "Corcovado", and "Once Upon A Summertime".

MCA, 1975. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Key proof that Deodato kept on making great records after leaving CTI Records – and in a way, the kind of set that allowed him a bit more freedom to grow than some of his contemporaries! The vibe here is a bit tighter than before, but in a way that makes many numbers even funkier – played by small combos on all tunes, with players that include Hubert Laws, Steve Gadd, John Tropea, and other early 70s fusion heavyweights – all jamming with Deodato's great work on electric piano and clavinet! There's a great variety of material here, but as usual with Deodato, even familiar tunes get really transformed – in this case into soulful fusion numbers with a sound that we never would have expected! Titles include "Caravan", "Funk Yourself", "Crabwalk", "First Cuckoo", and versions of Marcos Valle's "Adam's Hotel" and Led Zep's "Black Dog"! LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Draper with John ColtraneTuba Jazz ... CD
Jubilee (Japan), 1958. Used ... $11.99
Fantastic work – and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by Ray Draper, a jazz tuba player, with an approach to the instrument that's a lot better than you might think! Draper plays the tuba like the best baritone saxophonists – using the lower registers of the instrument to groove around in tight step with the basslines, but always still managing to swing – a remarkable feat, given the heaviness of the instrument! Draper's talents were quite respected at the time – both by Jackie McLean, who used him on a record, and by John Coltrane, who makes a rare appearance here as a sideman on the set! The mixture of Coltrane's angularity and Draper's bassiness is sublime – and the album's filled with great tracks that have a fresh late 50s modernist hardbop approach. Titles include "Essii"s Dance", "Yesterdays", "Oleo", and "Doxy". CD
