✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoChi-Congo (Paula pressing) ... LP
Paula, 1973. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost chapter in the career of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – an obscure early 70s album, issued by the mostly-blues Paula Records label in Louisiana, and one of the hardest to find albums in their catalog! The album features 3 long tracks – "Chi-Congo", "Enlorfe", and "Hippparippp" – played in an open and inventive style that recalls the best of the group's work in Paris at the end of the 60s. The core group of Lester Bowie, Malachi Favors, Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman, and Don Moye manage to get their hands on more instruments than you'd hear from the entire percussion section of an orchestra – and with amazing results! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 70s pressing.)

✨✧ James MoodyWorld Is A Ghetto (aka Sax & Flute Man) ... CD
Paula/Fuel 2000, 1973. Used ... $9.99
A sweet set of electric funk from James Moody – and a great little record to match the grooves he was laying down at the Perception label in the early 70s – with a very unique sound! Moody's working here alongside some sweet work on electric piano by either Jodie Christian or Tennyson Stephens – and with some sly and soulful arrangements by Chicago soul maestro Richard Evans, who also plays bass on the record and gives it a style that's almost an extension of the later Cadet kind of groove. The album features an excellent funky instrumental version of " First Thing I Do In the Morning", originally a funky vocal 45 by Chicago singer Joyce Williams – and other cuts include "Trilby", "Don't Let Me Be Lonely", "World Is A Ghetto", "Good Sense Humor Man", and "Country City Country".

Redd Holt UnlimitedDo It Baby/I Shot The Sheriff ... 7-inch
Paula, 1975. Near Mint- ... $39.99
"Do It Baby" is probably the best-ever track by Redd Holt, with a stone cold breakbeat in the intro that was sampled by BDP and others, and some great grooves all the way through. His version of "I Shot The Sheriff" is pretty fantastically funky, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Redd Holt UnlimitedIsaac, Isaac, Isaac ... LP
Paula, 1974. Very Good+ ... $38.99
An excellent album by Isaac Redd Holt – one half of the incredible Young-Holt rhythm team, bursting out nicely here on his own! This is Redd's second album – first for Paula, as the other one was a jazz effort on Argo back in the 60s – and it's a wild blend of jazz, funk, and a lot of other weird sounds. The introduction's totally cool, and features Redd running through a list of hip little clubs in American cities, then the album launches into the great "Listen to the Drums", which has a tight pounding groove, and moves on to a whole bunch of other jazzy cuts like "Flo", "Slow Funk", and "Let the Spirit In". Redd sings a bit, which isn't too bad (mostly), but it's the grooves that will keep you coming back. Very much in the spirit of Roy Porter's legendary funk albums – but probably a bit tighter! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – nice and clean! Cover has a cut corner and some light wear on the front – but vinyl is nice.)

Two lesser-known tracks from Fontella's years at Paula! "Home Wrecker" is arranged and produced by Bobby Patterson – with a chunky southern groove that's a lot like his own work, compressed horns and guitar underneath Fontella's heavy vocals! "Now That" is the work of Oliver Sain – who really gets Fontella's voice just right, blending it with heavenly touches that make it float! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ MontclairsDreaming Out Of Season ... CD
Paula/P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Harmony soul heaven – and the only full album from The Montclairs! The group were a sublime vocal group from the 70s – one with a sound to rival The Whatnauts or The Moments, but which also had a bit more of the super-dope touches you'd expect from their look on the cover of the record – a bit like Soul Generation at their best! The sound is sweet, but with an edge – and a young Phil Perry wrote most of the tracks on the record, with a really unique feel that goes beyond simple cliches from the better-known groups of the genre. Oliver Sain produced, and although the record came out on Jewel, it's got much more of a New Jersey feel than other work on the label. Titles include "Dreaming's Out Of Season", "Grand Finale", "Just Can't Get Away", "Prelude to a Heartbreak", "Do I Stand a Chance", and "Unwanted Love". CD features 9 more bonus tracks from singles – including "Make Up For Lost Time", "I Need You More Than Ever", "Hung Up On Your Love", "I'm Calling You", "Dawn Of My Life", "Out My Back Door", and "Ease The Pain".

✨✧ Ruben BladesSalsa Plus ... CD
Ruben Blades, 2021. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The great Ruben Blades sounds every bit as fantastic here as ever – soaring out with that magnificent voice that made his classic records so important in helping bring salsa to a wider market – and still working here with the best vintage approach to the music that he brought to his earliest recordings with Willie Colon! Bassist Robert Delgado handled the arrangements, and the group has this magnificent flourish on the horns – rising up with a sense of majesty that really matches Ruben's vocals, but never in a way that loses that down to earth charm that's always made the singer so able to touch so many hearts with his words. Titles include "Contrando", "Cobarde", "Canto Niche", "Do I Hear Four", "Mambo Gil", and "Paula C". CD

Ruben Blades, 2021. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Ruben Blades steps out here in a mix of modes – tracks from both his Swing and Salsa Plus albums, and like those cuts, done in collaboration with the group of Robert Delgado – the bassist whose arrangements really help the record soar! Ruben's vocals are wonderful – somehow even better with age, and still commanding all the power of the past – and the rest of the group has the right balance of jazzy horn work and Latin currents in the rhythms to really help set the mood. Titles include "Mambo Gil", "Watch What Happens", "Pennies From Heaven", "Paula C", "Do I Hear Four", "Cobarde", and "The Way You Look Tonight". CD

Ruben Blades delivers a great mix of jazzy styles here – some tracks that definitely echo the swing era promised by the title and the cover, but always mixed with the soulful sense of inflections he brought to his classic salsa material too! This isn't just some retro vocal jazz album, as the tunes are well-chosen, and includes originals too – all delivered with help from the orchestra of Robert Delgado. The group is great – top-shelf all the way through – and titles include "Watch What Happens", "Mambo Gil", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Ya No Me Duele", "Paula C", "Pennies From Heaven", and "Cobarde".

Walter Gavitt FergusonLegendary Tape Recordings Vol 2 – The King Of Calypso Limonense ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Sealed ... $17.99
Not the kind of calypso that was issued by the big American labels in the 50s – and instead, sounds that have a sound, style, and overall approach that's maybe a lot more similar to American blues from the rural scene! The tracks here are all pulled from the personal archive of Walter Gavitt Ferguson – recorded mostly at his home, on cassette, over the space of many years in which Ferguson was growing in international fame, even while never leaving the space of his island. Recording quality is nice and raw – of the sort you'd be more likely to hear from rural Mississippi or Georgia bluesmen in some 60s ethnographic project – and the guitar phrasing is as biting as Walter's delivery of the lyrics. Titles on this second volume include "Not A Pugilist", "Roberto Tour", "You Cannot Bathe A Puss", "Hoorah For Paula", "Lock Me Up Neighbour", "One Pants Tearing Off", "Gal Must Be Take Me For A Fool", and "All Going Up To Glory".

Sunflower Soul/Colemine, 2021. New Copy ... $10.99
A really great contemporary soul group – one who've got a different vibe than some of the rest, and this warmly righteous spirit that really lives up to the title of the record! The group embrace themes of love and power equally – rising up with a quality that's a great change from some of the more offhand modes that sometimes grace records like this – a group who put their soul message first, then follow through with nicely funky backings. There's three different female singers in the group – Misha Roberts, Paula Saunders, and Seyko Groves – who each get to solo in the lead, but have strong harmony support from the others – on titles that include "Outta My Mind", "Move On", "Rise Up", "Don't Shoot", "One Nation", "Love Liberates", and "Make Me Surrender".

Roy PorterInner Feelings (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Vistone/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $24.99
A crazy bit of funk from drummer Roy Porter – a player who first rose to fame during the LA bop years of the late 40s, but who sounds even hipper here in the 70s! The album's got a madly skittish approach to funk – one that's highly rhythmic, but often in unconventional ways – somewhat similar to Redd Holt's excellent albums for the Paula label. Roy plays drums, percussion, and sings a bit – and the grooves run from break-heavy instrumentals to even cooler numbers that bring in more of a sense of flow and soul – really opening things up beyond any simple 70s jazz funk cliches, and hitting some really wicked new territory! Instrumentation includes plenty of great horns, electric piano, guitar, and even a bit of Arp – all used in really inventive and creative ways. Titles include the classic crate-digging favorites "Panama" and "Party Time", plus a vocal version of "Jessica", a cover of Jobim's "Waver-ing", and another nice original called "Funny Feelin'"! Tremendous stuff all the way through! CD

Trunk (UK), 1958. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Heavy rhythms from the Brazilian scene of the 50s – a set of grooves originally used to accompany a touring dance production, but a set of tracks that's gone on to have quite a life of its own! The music here isn't the cool bossa or spare samba you might expect – and instead has this full-on, very heady sort of vibe – almost Afro-Cuban in the way the album was recorded, although lots of the core elements of the music have a distinctly Brazilian feel, and seem to point the way towards more ambitious recordings of the 60s – such as the work of Moacir Santos on the Forma label, or the Afro Sambas of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes! Percussion is very heavy, and nicely earthy – and most tracks feature some chorus vocals buried alongside the rhythms, plus occasional leads from Ivan De Paula – who's got a deep style that really matches the music. Titles include "Imbae Sofa", "Ogum Olojo", "De Luanda", "Tem Brabo No Samba", "Onika", and "Maracatu Da D Santa". LP, Vinyl record album

Zawinul SyndicateBlack Water/Lost Tribes ... CD
BGO (UK), 1989/1992. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Two Joe Zawinul albums – back to back on a single set! Black Water is funky fusion from the late 80s combo of keyboardist Joe Zawinul – a set that takes off nicely from his classic work in Weather Report, then adds in both a dose of soul and more global elements! The group features Joe on a host of different keyboards – with Gerald Veasley on some very heavy bass, Scott Henderson on guitars, and Lynne Fiddmont Linsey on vocals and percussion – joined at times by Carl Anderson and Kevin Dorsey, who both give the set a full, righteous vibe! Instrumentation is heavily in an 80s electric mode, but warmed up nicely by the other touches and percussion – and titles include "Black Water", "Carnavalito", "In The Same Boat", "Familial", "Medicine Man", "They Had A Dream", "And So It Goes", and "Monk's Mood". Lost Tribes is a record that has the legendary keyboardist Joe Zawinul dipping further into the mix of jazz and global elements brought forth by his Syndicate group – served up here with a really unusual mix of elements, and a strong balance between acoustic percussion and electric instrumentation! The voice is as powerful here as the groove – sometimes song soulfully, but other times used almost more as another instrument – opening the door further to some of the global sensibilities that Zawinul was bringing to some of his later work with Weather Report. the group features Mike Baker on drums, Randy Bernsen on percussion, and Gerald Veasley on bass – and titles include "Changes", "San Sebatian", "Rua Paula Freitas", "South Africa", "Patriots", and "Lost Tribes".

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 29.99
The image of a female singer at a piano is nothing new, but it definitely has a very special place in the history of jazz – maybe one of the few spots where a female instrumentalist could really get some time in the spotlight, while also breaking past some of the more standard cliches of teary-eyed torch singers too! This set is an excellent overview of the tradition – and features material from the early years of jazz, when there was maybe a stronger through-line to blues as well – then follows artists up through a huge boom in the postwar years – as piano lines got more modern, and vocal approaches did too! The set does a great job of mixing up traditions – still following some of the more blues-based artists through the 50s as well – and as with every great set on the Fremeaux label, the set features detailed notes in English and French on all the contents. 76 tracks in all – with selections by Cleo Brown, Una Mae Carlisle, Katie Webster, Lilette Thomas, Shirley Horn, Madonna Martin, Christine Chatman, Jeri Southern, Blossom Dearie, Hadda Brooks, Frantic Fay Thomas, Louise Johnson, Martha Davis, Nellie Lutcher, Clara Ward, Ira Mae Littlejohn, Paula Watson, Arizone Dranes, Camille Howard, and a number of others.

✨✧ VariousSacred Soul – Dave Hamilton's Raw Detroit Gospel 1969 to 1974 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The lost gospel music legacy of Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a key force in funk and soul in the Motor City in the 60s – where he developed an amazing sound that he also brought to his spiritual recordings as well! Dave's approach was always grittier than that of Motown or some of the sweeter labels in the city – as you might have heard on some of the great Ace/Kent collections of his rare singles and unissued recordings over the years – all compilations that really lay the groundwork for this one, which is brimming over with raw gospel material from a very soulful stretch in the genre! The work here is like the hippest soul gospel recorded by Chess/Checker or Jewel/Paula at the same time – strongly associated with secular soul in terms of instrumentation, arrangements, and production – and graced with message-oriented lyrics that are perfect for the heady times of the late 60s and early 70s. Some of the tracks were issued on the Sacred Sounds label back in the day, and are mixed with some others found in Hamilton's archives – all given the usual great support by Ace with a big booklet of notes and photos. Titles include "Grown Old & Feeble" by The Soul Inspirers, "I Still Remember" by Umble Faith, "Someday We'll Be Together" by The National Independent Singers, "Savoir On The Throne" by Mr Bo, "Pressing On" by The Silver Harps, "I'm Not Ready To Die" by The Scott Singers, "Down Here Praying" by The Detroit Silvertones, "The Little Light" by The Fantastic Voices Of Joy, "I Heard A Voice (part 1)" by Sensational Angelettes, "If I Had My Way" by OC Tolbert & Clara White Houston, and "Life's Pathway" by Rev Evans.

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a young Gal Costa on the cover, but the album's a contemporary one – yet the music also has a surprisingly youthful vibe – almost a back-to-basics approach that has core acoustic instrumentation mixed with some occasional light strings, but always used in these gentle ways that seem to have the vocals come right out front in the mix! Many numbers have a guest singing along with Gal – vocalists who include Criolo, Silva, Rodrigo Amarante, Seu Jorge, and others – and given the gentle instrumentation and light strings, the approach almost takes us back to Gal's debut album Domingo, which was a set of duets with Caetano Veloso. And no surprise, the album also features a few tracks from that classic record, alongside other material from Veloso, Dorival Caymmi, Chico Buarque, and Luiz Melodia. Titles include "Paula E Bebeto", "So Louco", "Avarandado", "Meu Bem Meu Mal", "Coracao Vagabundo", and a nice remake of "Baby" – plus a version of the Bob Dylan tune "It's All Over Now Baby Blue".
