Prince Lasha EnsembleInsight ... CD
Columbia/Dusty Groove, 1966. New Copy ... $6.99 12.98
Tremendous work from the legendary Prince Lasha – a rare UK-only date from 1966 – and one that has the reedman working away from more familiar contemporaries like Sonny Simmons and Eric Dolphy! The approach on this session is very unique – as Lasha includes harp with the instrumentation, played by David Snell in a style that's right up there with Dorothy Ashby's best jazz work. Pianist Stan Tracey is also on board – playing beautiful notes that have a sharp modern edge, while still falling on the inside of the spectrum – and Lasha himself is especially great – blowing plastic alto sax and wooden flute, both of which have a slightly offbeat sound – but one that's surprisingly warm, which makes the album one of his most sensitive and soulful sessions ever! The tunes are a mix of standards and originals – and there's a wonderful sense of balance here – sounds that are sometimes more inside than other records from Lasha, but which have a really Dolphy-like sense of expression – right at home amidst a wider history of jazz, yet also reaching for new ideas at the same time. Pure genius throughout, and a record that was never made available to audiences in the US. Titles include "Nuttin Out Jones", "Impressions Of Eric Dolphy", "Out Of Nowhere", "Just Friends", "Body & Soul", and "Everything Happens To Me". CD

Warner, 1982. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.98
The record that forever put Prince on the map – a legendary set that took him from being an under-appreciated soul singer to a lasting pop music legend! Prince had been around for a few years before 1999 – but the double-length set was the first to really win over the masses to his genius – and still stands as one of the most perfect blends of soul, funk, and pop that we can ever think of – especially since the man himself pretty much put the whole thing together on his own! The set begins with the classic singles "Little Red Corvette" and "1999" – then soars into lots more gems that include "Let's Pretend We're Married", "Lady Cab Driver", "All The Critics Love U In New York", "International Lover", "DMSR", and "Delirious". Fantastic 2CD version features new remastering – and a full CD of rare promo mixes and b-sides – with titles that include "1999 (7" mono promo only edit)", "Free (promo only edit)", "How Come U Don't Call Me Anymore", "Lady Cab Driver (7" edit)", "Little Red Corvette (dance rmx promo-only edit)", "Horny Toad", "Automatic (video version)", "Let's Pretend We're Married (video)", "Irresistible Bitch", "Let's Pretend We're Married (7" mono promo only edit)", and "DMSR (edit)".

✨✧ Prince3121 ... CD
Universal, 2006. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A strong effort from the mid 00s revitalized Prince – one that doesn't approach the greatness of the best material, but a graceful and consistent gem nonetheless! As it was done on his big ol' comeback album, Musicology, Prince takes strides to revisit his classic styles on the different tunes, but it doesn't come off as a simple rehash. Each song pretty much finds Prince in a different mode that can be found on a previous LP, but it works because it's so engaged and warm. Latter day Prince really only turns us off when he strains too hard to do something new, and succeeds in our eyes when he simply makes with his trademark pop funk signature sounds we know and love. Notice that no one really succeeds at ripping Prince off? It's because it can't be done. Tracks include "3121", "Lolita", "Te Amo Corazon", "Black Sweat", "Incense And Candles", "Satisfied", "Fury", "The Word", "Beautiful, Loved And Blessed", "The Dance" and "Get On The Boat". CD

✨✧ PrinceOne Nite Alone – Live (4LP purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sony/Legacy, 2002. New Copy 4LP ... $71.99 72.98
Wonderful live work from Prince – the only official concert album ever issued by the man during his life, and a great testament to the way that his genius kept on burning bright on stage – even when he wasn't always knocking it out of the park in the studio! There's a fair bit of material here from later years, but also some classics mixed into the set – and the work often emphasizes the jazzier side of Prince's style – partly through his evolved musicianship, but also in the way the tunes come together with an even more sophisticated vibe than the early years. Titles include "Rainbow Children", "Muse 2 The Pharoah", "Extraordinary", "One Nite Alone", "Wanna B Ur Lover", "Do Me Baby", "Diamonds & Pearls", "When U Were Mine", "Mellow", "1+1+1 Is 3", "Nothing Compares 2 U", and "Sometimes It Snows In April".

Sony/Legacy, 2002. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A dream of a record from Prince – up-close, intimate, and just the voice and piano promised in the title! As you'd guess from the setting, the record presents the mellower side of the man's mighty talents – but the whole thing is no less soulful than any of his previous records – and in fact maybe is even more so in the way that Prince lays down his vocals, with all these amazing inflections, long reaches, and very personal qualities throughout! Titles include "Pearls B4 The Swine", "Have A Heart", "Here On Earth", "One Nite Alone", "U're Gonna C Me", "Young & Beautiful", "Avalanche", "Objects In The Mirror", and "Arboretum".

PrincePiano & A Microphone ... CD
Warner, 1983. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A fantastic musical gift from beyond – early 80s recordings by Prince, and the sort of work that might have been a huge revelation if it were issued during his too-short career! As the title implies, the set just features the man himself at the piano – singing and playing with a very intimate vibe – completely unlike any of his 80s material at all, even though some of the songs are the same! Prince is fantastic at the keys – really compelling and inspirational – with a sense of feeling that opens up some of his jazz chops in a way we never would have expected – and which is then matched by a more freewheeling sense of vocalization – with these fantastic inflections that leave us breathless, but again in a completely different way than his other music. The first half of the set features Prince flowing through songs that include "17 Days", "Purple Rain", "Mary Don't You Weep", "A Case Of You", "International Lover", "Wednesday", and "Strange Relationship" – and the second half features the songs "Why The Butterflies" and "Cold Coffee & Cocaine".

PrincePrince ... CD
Warner, 1979. New Copy ... $4.99 5.99
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a really remarkable, unique, and fascinating record that stands up with some of his best work, and bucks all late 70s trends and cliches in pop, soul and funk! In some ways this is one of our favorite Prince records, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later sets – or maybe because the hit "I Wanna Be Your Lover" has such a mad groove! "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" has the sly sound that would run throughout the rest of Prince's better work for years to come – and Chaka Khan would later cover "I Feel for You", and hit large with it in the 80s. Also includes "Sexy Dancer", "With You" and "When We're Dancing Close & Slow". CD

Really fantastic work from Prince – an album that's maybe not as famous as some of his 80s classics, but which has the maestro in perfect form throughout! There's all these warm jazzy currents in the music that we totally love – especially on the keyboards, which have a glow and flow that clearly seems to be Prince's way of showing the Neo Soul generation that he not only helped carve out the territory that first got them going, but also can still do it maybe better than anyone else! The album still has some of the heavier funk that Prince was always known for – but it's the warmer, mellower moments we totally love – on titles that include "Last December", "The Work", "Everywhere", "The Sensual Hereafter", "Muse 2 The Pharoah", "Deconstruction", "Wedding Feast", "1+1+1 Is 3", and "She Loves Me 4 Me".

The tunes stretch out nice and long, and feel very spontaneous – like you're certainly being let into some special aftershow event – and titles include "The Everlasting Now", "Peach (xtended jam)", "Dorothy Parker", "Just Friends (Sunny)/If You Want Me To Stay", "Joy In Repetition", "We Do This", "2 Nigs United 4 West Compton", "Alphabet Street", and "Girls & Boys".

✨✧ Prince LashaInside Story ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $14.99
A rare treasure from spiritual reedman Prince Lasha – a session recorded in 1965 in New York, but one that wasn't issued until many years later by the Enja label in Germany! The album is a real revelation – and clearly marks Lasha as one of the key artists unlocking the more spiritual sounds in jazz at the time – taking off nicely from the later work of Eric Dolphy, and dovetailing with some of the best experiments of John Coltrane – but at a level that maybe even leapfrogs into more 70s modes as well! The group here is great – a quartet with Herbie Hancock on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums – and Lasha plays both alto and flute, in modes that echo his best work with Sonny Simmons, and on his later solo albums too. Titles include "Ethereal", "Flight", "Kwadwo Safari", "Mary", and "Inside Story". CD

Tracks include "MVU (Acts 1, 2, 3 and Final Act)", "It's A Stick Up!", "Flattery", "My Friend The Popmaster", "Yes, I Do Love Them Ho's!", "I Want You (I'm An 80s Man)", "Gangsta's My Style", "And The Winner Is?", "The Night My Girlfriend Left Me", "Think Or Die" and more.

Prince Billy Mahdi WrightYou Got Dat Wright ... CD
Raenii/P-Vine (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... About July 3, 2020
A wonderful bit of lost spiritual soul jazz from Chicago – recorded in the early 80s, but with a progressive and righteous feel that's very much in the 70s Strata East vein! The group's led by Billy Mahdi on tenor, soprano, and flute – and features Corky McClerkin on piano, Eldee Young on bass, and Dave Baldwin on sax. But the real treat on the set is a trio of female singers that augment some of the best tracks – singing in a slightly off-beat style that is somewhere between Oneness Of Juju and Ramp. And in fact, Oneness of Juju are a good comparison here – as the album's got a lot of tracks that are kind of like that group's tighter jazz dance, less Afro-inspired numbers. Includes the spiritual classics "Tune Weaver" and "Summer Love" – plus "Love Dream", "79th Street Blues", and "Excuse Me". CD

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four Trojan Records albums, all produced by Linval Thompson – and featuring some bonus tracks too! First up is Poor Man Style – a gem of a record from Barrington Levy – done in that laidback, easy-stepping style that always worked perfectly for the singer's vocals! Linval Thompson produced, and he brings in all these cool touches around the edges – early dancehall modes that are nicely understated, and which still maybe resonate more with the roots generation than later crossover hits – a righteous vibe that makes the whole album simmer beautifully all the way through! Titles include "She Is The Best Girl", "Don't Give Up", "Sensimella", "True Love", "Poorman Style", "This Little Boy", "Rob & Gone", "I Can't Wait Too Long", "Man Give Up", and "I Love I Love You". Next is Scientist & Jammy Strike Back – a record in which Scientist and Prince Jammy look an awful lot like Star Wars characters on the cover – but with grooves that are every bit as deep as their other dub classics from the time – completely amazing from conception to execution! If anything, the stars might be the perfect place for the music – given that the sounds here are very open, spacious, and way-out – full of as much echo as attack, at a level that reminds us that the pair are maybe some of the most minimalist of the dub generation! Rhythms are by the Roots Radics, but are always nice and spare – and there's plenty of splash and electro echo to link together the space between the notes – on titles that include "Flash Gordon Meets Luke Skywalker", "Crushing Of The Stormtroopers", "The Princess Takes Her Revenge", "Buck Rogers In The Black Hole", "Death Of Mr Spock", and "Storming The Death Star". Next is We Must Unite – a tremendous album from The Viceroys – a Jamaican vocal trio that we'd rank right up there with The Paragons and Melodians, and who work in this beautiful message-oriented mode next to wicked production from Linval Thompson! The record's got some slight electro-styled touches at the edge – used gently next to slow-tripping rhythms – while the trio step out with these warm harmonies that really bring a lot to the lyrics of the songs – a righteous batch of tracks that include "We Must Unite", "The Intelligence Of Her Mind", "Come Closer My Love", "They Can't Stop Us Now", and "Rising On The Strength Of Jah". Singer Tristan Palma follows in a very similar mode, but as a solo lead – on the well-crafted Settle Down Girl, also produced by Linval Thompson! Titles include "Settle Down Girl", "Run Around Woman", "Losted My Wife", "Don't Make Me Cry", "Come Turn Me On", and "Rosie Bell". CD also features bonus tracks – "If I Didn't Want Your Loving (12" mix)" and "Loving Version" by The Melodians – and "Settle Down Girl (12" mix)", and "Settle Down Girl Version" by Tristan Palma. CD

A mad bit of soul psychedelia from Prince – a record that sounds better and better over the years, and which stands out from most of his 80s work thanks to some really unique production and songwriting! After Purple Rain, Prince did anything but wince in the face of living up to such a massive crossover smash – and if Around The World didn't move nearly as many units, it stands pretty tall these days. A mix of Revolution pop funk & soul, with a more swirling, self consciously psychedelic pop. Titles include the hit "Raspberry Beret", "Paisley Park" (with melody so strong, no wonder Prince held onto the name for other ventures) plus "Around The World In A Day", "America", "Temptation", "Pop Life", and "Condition Of The Heart".

NPG, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very strong album by the one-and-only Prince – maybe the catchiest, most rewarding full length by the royal one since the Revolution days! Musicology is most notable for the undeniable exuberance and joy that vibrates from the speakers, track after track. Prince seems to be having fun on this one, and as much as we admired the freaky prog funk of his previous album The Rainbow Children (even if it was pretty damn puzzling), it's great to have these big, Revolution style funk rock party numbers back in the cannon. All praise aside, we have to admit we're just a little bit baffled by the relentless hype and fawning, over-baked love this album has gotten in mainstream publications, but our beef is with toothless entertainment "journalists" and "critics", not with Prince. Highly recommended! Tracks include "Musicology", "A Million Days", "Life O' The Party" ,"Call My Name", "Cinnamon Girl" (not the Neil Young song), "What Do U Want Me 2 Do?", "On The Couch" and more.

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four fantastic albums from the legendary Prince Far I! The set begins with the classic Free From Sin – Great early work from Prince Far I – a stunning mix of reggae and dub, with a righteous quality that really gives the prince his title amongst 70s Jamaican royalty! Backing is by a version of the Roots Radics – with the excellent Style Scott on drums, Errol Holt on Bass, Bingy Bunny, Sowell and Chinna Smith on guitar, Bobby Kalphat and Snappin on keys, Bobby Ellis and Deadly Headly on horns, and Bongo Herman and Ras Millinek on percussion – but the real key to the sound is the way that Prince Far I produces the whole thing, and mixes his own sinister vocals with the heady, bottom-heavy rhythms – all with a quality that matches Lee Scratch Perry at his best! Titles include "Free From Sin", "Light Of Fire", "Reggae Music", "I & I Are the Chosen One", "Don't Deal With Folly", "Call On I In Trouble", "When Jah Ready You Got To Move", and "Siren". Jamaican Heroes is a totally great album by Prince Far I – and a set that already shows him building that crucial London/Kingston bridge that would be such a big part of his sound! The album features work from Sly & Robbie, and the killer drums of Style Scott on rhythm – but also includes contributions by London hipsters Viv Albertine & Ari Up (of the Slits), and David Toop (noted music writer and historian) – quite a mix, and all brought together wonderfully by the Prince's production, and really unique vocal approach. Titles include "Jamaican Heroes", "Prison Discipline", "Musical History", "Natty Champion", and "Golden Throne". Next up is a classic from Prince Far I – Voice Of Thunder couldn't be a more appropriate album title or moniker! Recorded at Channel One in 1981 with incredible analog dub production, it fully carries the grit, murk, heavy and heady soul of the 70s into the new decade –even if the sound is ultimately a bit different then the what he delivered in the 70s. That thunderous voice toasting over the rhythms is as incredible as ever – over the commanding bass of Professor Larry Silvera, tripped out drums & percussion by Jah Lloyd & Scully, occasional swirling keys by Steely, Tarzan and Tony Asher and the other great Channel One players. Titles include "Ten Commandments", "Every Time I Hear The Word", "Head Of The Buccaneer", "Shall Not Dwell In Wickedness", "Skinhead", and "Hold The Fort". Musical History is one of the last albums ever issued by Prince Far I – and a set that marks a fantastic cap to a too-short career! The Prince's vocal contributions are as impeccable as his dubby production work – and titles include "At The Cross", "More We Are Together", "Take Heed Frontline", "What You Gonna Do On Judgement Day", and "Tell Them About Jah Love".

Auralux (UK), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal LP of dub confrontation, where London Sound System commander Fatman pits the then up and coming Prince Jammy against relative unknown Crucial Bunny for a massive rhythm battle! Jammy and Bunny go nuts flexing their dub techniques on hard and heavy rhythms cut at Channel One and Harry J's by an all star cast of the usual suspects that includes Sly and Robbie, Fully Fullwood, Ranchie McLean, Santa Davis, Skully Sims, Jackie Mittoo, Chinna Smith and others, who keep the proceedings raw and rootsy. This long lost selecter's choice dub album features the 8 numbers of the original release, including "Jammys A No Fool", "Jammys On The Move", "Jammys A Shine", "Jammys A Satta", "Bunny Is Crucial", "Bunny Na Jest", "Bunny A Warrior" and "Bunny No Easy", plus the CD adds four excellent bonus tracks, previously only released as dub plates: "Feel Jammys Spirit", "Jammys Too Bad", "Wild Wild Bunny" and "How Bunny Feels".

New York avant meets the bossa – and a once-in-a-lifetime session that brings the sax and flute work of Simmons, Lash, and Clifford Jordan into play with Brazilian rhythms from the Bossa Tres! The album's completely wonderful – an excellent bossa jazz session at its core, but filled with some cutting edge reed work that makes the record stand out a lot more from the pack. The American players don't play on every track – leaving about half the record to the Bossa Tres on their own – making for a nice shift between trio bossa tunes and larger group jamming numbers.

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A rare album as a leader from Teo Macero – one of the driving forces behind some of the key Miles Davis albums on Columbia Records – and other great jazz on that label too! Although Teo Macero is probably best known as Columbia's jazz producer during their successful early 60s run with Miles, he's also quite a composer in his own right, as you'll hear on this striking set of sides from the late 50s! Macero splits the album with Bob Prince – and each of these lesser-known modernists get a side apiece, and fairly free reign in coming up with some wild material. The sound has a little bit of that hip east coast chamber sound that you'd hear in Hal McKusick recordings – but there's also a bit more influences from 20th century modernism, as well as some of the larger Kenton-esque experiments of the early 50s. Macero's group includes John LaPorta, Eddie Bert, and George Barrow – and Prince is assisted by Jon Eardley, Phil Woods, and Frank Socolow. A great slice of lost avant playing, and one of the more striking jazz sides in the Columbia catalog! Titles include "Sounds Of May", "Ground Base", "Germination", "24+ 18+", and "Neally".

Ornette ColemanFriends and Neighbors - Ornette Live At Prince Street ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Ornette Coleman – and a set that's very different than some of his other work for different labels – particularly his better-known material for Blue Note and Atlantic! The album's got a righteous feel that's right up there in the best spirit of the Flying Dutchman label of the early 70s – a mode that's still on the far reaches of avant jazz that Ornette explored on earlier sessions – but which also has a warmer, almost more spiritual quality at times too. The core group features legendary partners Charlie Haden on bass, Dewey Redman on tenor, and Ed Blackwell on drums – but part of the record features an unnamed group of "Friends & Neighbors", who join in on the title cut with this collaborative spirit that really sets the tone for the whole record. Coleman plays trumpet and violin in addition to his usual alto sax – and titles include the mindblowing two part "Friends & Neighbors", plus "Let's Play", "Long Time No See", "Forgotten Songs", and "Tomorrow".

Dawn/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99
Very unusual music from Fruupp – a group who issued these four albums on the always-unusual Dawn label – one of the most-trusted UK prog imprints of the early 70s! The sound of Fruupp is a bit hard to peg – as they're very proggy on their debut, but also clearly have a strong ear for more tuneful moments – almost like they've secretly got a few pop songs they're waiting for expose at the right time – although maybe that's just the production, because as things move on, the group more strongly embrace this vaguely medieval aesthetic, although again always with shorter tunes that feel like they could easily become hits in the right hands. Part of that quality is from the strength of the instrumentation, which really focuses the energy of the songs – even when the group is moving off into oboe or flute territory next to their guitars and keyboards. The box set features all four albums with original cover art – Future Legends, Seven Secrets, Prince Of Heaven's Eyes, and Modern Masquerades – plus the bonus tracks "Prince Of Heaven", "Jaunting Car", and "On A Clear Day".

A dizzying, intense and passionate display of Haitian street music – the vibrant, percussive and passionate work of Rara music, recorded by Soul Jazz in Port-Au-Prince – an exciting and eye-opening blend of shouted vocals, metal horn and hollow plastic pipe blowing and clattering drums! Haiti being a very intense place politcally, socially and culturally, the street music herein reflects it – an artful confrontation of the economic, racial and class inequalitities – and the sound of African roots influences fused with a vigorous passion anylike any we've heard on a global music compilation in quite some time! Includes singers Enide George & Marie Michel George, Gerald Michel, Aja Saintil and Jean Claude Annee on cone, Jean Vital and Onil Jean Batiste on banbou, and drummers Frederick Frednel, :auture Arnaud, Jozil J Rebert and Harold Laurenceau. The recordings are laid out on this excellent compilation in 3 long tracks that are each multiple part pieces: the 17 minute opener "Le Map Pale/Padisa/Reziye/Aroyo/Sepavre/Dilene", the 6 minute "Pastiche Grie-Remon O/Gade Machann" and the 13+ minute "Vaskin Mix/Madofe/Neg Yo Rele/Pa Blie/Map Navigue".

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The tenor sax here makes the album a standout – as John Coltrane still works with Miles Davis on 2 tracks for the record, but Blue Note stalwart Hank Mobley joins in on the rest! The approach is similar to that of the classic Coltrane/Davis years – and in a way, the record's kind of a swan song to that period – one of the last studio session that Miles would cut in such an unabashedly sweet and lyrical way. And while Mobley's always better known for his harder-blown notes at Blue Note, he sounds totally great here next to Davis – really keeping up the gentle spirit and spaciousness of the record, and working with a gentleness that surpasses even his work on the legendary Soul Station album. Rhythm is by the trio of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and titles include Miles' classic version of "Someday My Prince Will Come", plus "Old Folks", "Teo", "Drad-Dog", and "Pfrancing".

P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

Blood & Fire (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $9.99
A classic compilation – and we can't get enough of Horace Andy's sweet falsetto keening over these chugging, fat rhythms! A tremendous set of sides Andy cut in the mid-70s, packaged together with a few of the cuts in dub versions – all from a period when Horace was really hitting new heights in his music. While Andy cut many seminal sides for Coxsonne Dodd's Studio One – this work, some of it in collaboration with the great Bunny Striker Lee, stands among his best – and also often features Horace with firm creative control. Here he reworks the Studio One classic "Skylarking" as a "Better Version" with Lee, and there's a number of pieces cut at Tubby's with the aid of Prince Jammy (who contributed a nice sound to the In the Light set, also issued by Blood & Fire), like the massive "Pure Ranking" in it's full 8+ minute 12" disco mix version. Also includes the "Dub Vibes" version of the title track, "Mr Bassie", and "Reggae Rhythm – It's Gone International". CD

The group's got a few more members than before, but their sound is somehow even leaner – a really tight approach to ensemble funk that really sits proudly with the best of the Kool & The Gang/Fatback generation – with some sweet Afro-inspired touches as well! The organ on the set is especially nice – played by Johnell Grey, and bubbling up nicely underneath the horns – and the drums from Esco Cromer have a wicked kick too, even on some of the album's mellower cuts. Titles include the killer break cut "Zimba Ku", plus "Questions & Conclusions", "Love", "Prince Duval", "Feel Like A Child", "Keep On Runnin", and a nice funky version of "Drive My Car".

The playing is excellent throughout – and the album's the kind of live stormer that shows why the group were such a huge draw right out of the box, and why they performed as well (if not better) in a live setting than they did ain a studio one!

Essential! The mighty debut album from African disciples Culture pairing up with the Mighty Two, Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson is one of the landmark sets of roots reggae, a defining moment of the genre dropped during the year when two sevens clashed. And though the apocalypse didn't rain down from the skies in '77, this album was certainly a world-changing event, one of the finest moments in Kingston's rich musical history! Gibbs provides the trio with a set of uplifting rhythms over which to harmonize, and Culture comes correct on every track, combining a tightly harmonized approach with a rawer, rootsier sound. This 30th anniversary edition combines the 10 tracks of the original LP with 5 bonus numbers, and includes "I'm Alone In The Wilderness", "Pirate Days", "Two Sevens Clash", "Caling Rastafari", "I'm Not Ashamed", 'Get Ready To Ride The Lion To Zion", "Black Starliner Must Come", "Jah Pretty Face", 'See Them A Come", "Natty Dread Taking Over", "See Dem A Come (12" mix w/Prince Weedy)", "See Dem Dub", "Natty Dread Taking OVer (12" mix w/I Roy), "I'm Not Ashamed (12" mix w/I Roy)" and "Not Ashamed Dub".

Another bold new direction for the legendary Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that has some of the angular styles of earlier albums, but also a bit more of the flowing grace to come in the electric years! A key illustration of this is the leadoff track "Prince Of Darkness" – which has a fluid sensibility that still never fails to floor us, even all these many decades later! The rest of the tracks are equally great – even when subtle – and by this point, the group of Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams were well earning their acclaim as one of the most groundbreaking groups in jazz. Titles include "Prince Of Darkness", "Masqualero", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "Vonetta" – plus the odd inclusion of a vocal version of "Nothing Like You" – recorded 5 years before with singer Bob Dorough and arranger Gil Evans! The tune's an odd cap to this otherwise cohesive set – but we love it plenty too, and it somehow oddly fits! CD

The mindblowing classic debut of De La Soul! 3 Feet High And Rising is inarguably one of the most important records in hip hop history – with playful, endearingly oddball trio rhymes and Prince Paul production at it's most sprawlingly sampled and creative. It's got flat out classic songs that stand out well enough on their own, but it's also one of the greatest full length albums in hip hop history – featuring loosely connective skits with recurring characters that are vital to the experience. Last, but not least, 3 Feet. . .is especially fascinating given it's 1989 release year – a time when so many of the contemporaneous crews and solo MCs on both the east coast and west coast were going grittier, darker and more profane – but it doesn't feel like a conscious reaction to that, as much it feels like sharp trio and a brilliant producer carving out their own damn creative niche. Includes "Me, Myself & I", "The Magic Number", "Plug Tunin", "Say No Go", "Tread Water", "Eye Know", "Buddy" and much more!

On Primitiva, Denny's classic quartet format is augmented by extra percussion that includes gongs, cymbals, tuned logs, steel drums, chimes, chromatic bamboo, and lots more!

The title's possibly a bit misleading here – as the record's not so much a memorial to Dolphy, but a repackaging of sides that were repackaged originally as such in the 60s! If that's not confusing enough, let us just explain that the set features 9 tracks from Dolphy's important recordings for Alan Douglas – tunes that have shown up over the years in a variety of formats, but which are probably most famously known under the album titles Iron Man and Jitterbug Waltz. The format of the work is quite unusual – and at times is closer to Dolphy's Blue Note recordings than most of his other work of the period – with an approach that is both spiritual and angular, always touched with Dolphy's keen sense of modernism. Players include Clifford Jordan, Sonny Simmons, Prince Lasha, Richard Davis, and Bobby Hutcherson – and titles include "Love Me", "Ode To CP", "Mandrake", "Iron Man", "Burning Spear", and "Music Matador".

Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger array of players than you'll find on most of his records for other labels – the cream of the "new thing" players that were around New York at the time, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, and even Clifford Jordan on soprano sax – making a rare appearance on record on that instrument! Together, the players create a set of soundscapes that lies somewhere between Dolphy's Out To Lunch album, and some of the more modernist work by Mingus – a stunning batch of tracks that go out, but never too far. Titles include "Ode to CP", "Burning Spear", "Iron Man", and "Mandrake". LP, Vinyl record album

Doom (MF Doom)Born Like This ... LP
Lex, 2009. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
Doom is back, sans the MF prefix, fully loaded with funky sci fi hip hop that's fit to shake the heavens – his first record in far too long, and a strong one! We don't know where the masked man holed himself up in the couple years before this set, nor do we pay much attention to the rumors and gossip (he's locked up! he's sending out imposters!), but it doesn't matter, as he's come back sharp. We hear less Marvel Comics in the beats, and more spacey, blunt funk – particularly on the handful of tracks that have additional instrumentation by Mr Chop – with guests including Raekwon, Ghostface, Slug, Bumpy Knuckles, Posdnous & Prince Paul – plus additional production by Dilla, Madlib, and Jake One! There's some great stuff here, and whether the guy is truly certifiable or if it's all a put on, we love 'em either way. Stay close by, Doom! Titles include "Gazzilion Ear", "Ballskin", "Lightworks", "Batty Boyz", "Rap Ambush", "Stil Dope", "Microwave Mayo", "Supervillainz", "Bumpy's Message" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Sheila ESheila E ... CD
Paisley Park, 1987. Used ... $24.99
Sheila E's producing herself here, but the groove is still very firmly in the Paisley Park mode – chunky, funky soul – often exploding with vamping Prince-esque rhythms, but also coming across with a smoother, jazzier mode at the best moments. The instrumentation here is mostly electric, but Sheila's obviously playing percussion too – and the record's got one heavily Latin number titled "Soul Salsa" – which has almost an August Darnell kind of dancefloor groove! Other tracks include "Love On A Blue Train", "Boys Club", "Hon E Man", "One Day", "Koo Koo", and "Price & The Passion". CD

Kim FowleyGood Clean Fun ... LP
Imperial, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Awesome work from madman Kim Fowley – an album that offers hard rockers, some nice groovers, and even some trippier tracks that feature spoken or performed bits! The record's got a really wonderful approach that's a look at the lost genius of the LA scene of the late 60s – emphasized by an appearance on the record by Rodney Bingeheimer, the mayor of Sunset Strip, plus work by Motorcycle John and the Frog Prince! If you've ever heard about Fowley, but never found the record to truly convey his insanity on record, this is the one to check out – as it's as brilliant as it is insane! Titles include "Energy", "Baby Rocked Her Dolly", "Motorcycle", "One Man Band", "Good Clean Fun", "Search For A Teenage Woman", "I'm Not Young Anymore", "Lights The Blind & Lame Can See", and "Kangaroo".

Gee Street, 1997. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... On August 29, 2020
Another episode in the wide-ranging career of Prince Paul, this time fiddling with darkly comic horrorcore. The cut's are mostly produced by RZA, 4th Disciple, & Truemaster and have a Wu-Tang feel, though overall, it sounds like this ship was steered by Paul. Tracks include "Dangerous Mindz", "Da Bomb", "Twelve Jewelz", "Unexplained", "Pit Of Snakes", "Elimination Process", "Repentance Day", "Deadliest Biz", and more. (Note: Record Store Day 2020 has been rescheduled to separate special release days of August 29, September 26 and October 24.

Jostereo & Radius EtcChicago2Paris Split EP – Gravity Daggers/Explore To Compose/ Zoooooooooned/The Point In 97 ... 7-inch
Radius, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
A bicontinental beathead summit with Chicago's own Radius Etc pairing up with Paris producer Jostereo! Jostereo's side is an impressive blend that kicks off with a bit of classical piano that quickly settles in beats and bass that subtles pulls it into heady instrumental hip hop, and gets richer from there with electric keys and even a bit of Prince-esque electric soul guitar. Radius balances it all out nicely on the other side with snapping bass and hazy beats from the start, but mellows out to soul jazz piano backed beats to close out his side. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kindred Spirits EnsembleLove Is Supreme ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2009. New Copy ... $16.99
The great first full length chapter of an ultra-hip ensemble – a contemporary group, but one with a great ear for the spiritual sounds of the 70s! The group's a bit like Build An Ark – no surprise, as they've shared a similar label, Kindred Spirits – and like that collective, this one really helps bridge a space between older jazz expressions and 21st Century styles – showing that older music still has a strong influence on the younger generation, especially when the sound is as deep as this! There's plenty of Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders inspiration going on here, but the execution is a bit different too – bits of strings amidst jazzy flute, keyboards, and trumpet lines – plus occasional vocals too. Titles include "The Creator Has A Master Plan (Peace)", "Ja-Mil", "Prince Of Peace", "John Coltrane", "Two Lullabyes", "Naima" and "Shining Liberation". CD

Lewis ConnectionLewis Connection ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99 18.99
Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a mighty American groove on the set – a wicked approach to funk that's very much in the best ensemble mode of the period – but leaner too, given the smaller lineup, and relatively sparse production – which makes most of the record bristle like some rare boogie 45! Vocals are by the brothers, plus female singer Barbara Bolar, and later Prince-mate Sonny Thompson – and Prince himself even adds in some slight magic to one cut on the set. Titles include "Dynamic Duo", "Got To Be Something", "Get Up", "Higher", "Feel Good To Ya", and "Mr G". (And for the record, the group's name on the cover was originally the Lewis Conection – but our spell checker has the title listed with the regular spelling!) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Teena MarieEmerald City ... CD
Epic, 1986. Used ... $8.99
Heavy funk from Teena Marie – a self-produced killer for mid 80s Epic Records – done with some even bolder grooves than before, in ways that definitely show the hallmarks of the Prince generation! The 80s was a hell of a good time to be a female funk artist on her own – and Teena more than takes advantage of that fact here – stepping out with a proud, loud groove that's undeniable – very much a female-positive moment that some folks occasionally overlook in their accounts of 80s soul. All tracks are Teena originals, right on the money – and titles include "Emerald City", "Once Is Not Enough", "You So Heavy", "Lips To Find You", "Love Me Down Easy", and "Sunny Skies". CD

John McLaughlinElectric Guitarist ... CD
Columbia, 1978. Used ... $4.99
A key change for John McLaughlin – post-Mahavishnu, post-Shakti, and very much the electric guitarist promised in the title! The album's one of McLaughlin's more professional fusion outings of the 70s, but still has some of the earthiness of his roots – and despite a rather large lineup that includes players from both previous groups, plus some 70s fusion superstars, John still manages to make the album come across with a nicely personal feel. Guitars are acoustic and electric, six string and twelve – and titles include "Miles Davis", "Guardian Angels", "Singing Earth", "The Dark Prince", "The Unknown Dissident", and "Desire & The Contorter".

Lloyd McNeilTreasures ... CD
Baobab/Soul Jazz (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A gem of a record from flute player Lloyd McNeil – an artist who flourished strongly during the spiritual jazz scene of the 70s, but who also seemed to always have his own sort of groove as well! Lloyd blows with the complexity and far-reaching sounds of contemporaries in the loft jazz scene, but he also opens up with more of a modal groove on most of these tracks too – a great pulse from a hip rhythm section that features Dom Salvador on piano, Cecil McBee on drums, Brian Brake on drums – and both Portinho and Ray Armando on percussion – players who add sensitive, subtle elements to the music to really resonate with the flute! Lloyd's sound is wonderful throughout – sometimes with the soulful focus of Roland Kirk, sometimes more open and cosmic, ala Prince Lasha – all depending on the special rhythms of the tunes. Titles include "Griot", "Salvation Army", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "As A Matter Of Fact". CD

Monday MichiruNaked Breath 2 ... CD
Sonic Image, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Beautiful work from Monday Michiru – an artist we've loved for over 20 years, and who just keeps on rewarding our faith in her work with records like this! Years back, Monday was a soul singer, then she grew into a very talented jazz singer too – and here, she's in a very special space of her own – beautifully set up with just the guitar of Yoshihisa Suzuki for accompaniment, plus a bit of her own work on flute – but mostly in a mode that just features her singing alongside the guitar! Monday's always had an expressive voice, but she really knocks it out of the park here – working so many different inflections, twists, and turns into her lyrics – so much so, we don't even miss the other instrumentation at all. Few folks could make an album this vivid with so little – but then again, Monday's always been a rare breed! Titles include the originals "One Thing's For Sure", "Seize The Day", "Brasilified", "Hidden Elements", "Disillusioned", and "Lone Wolf" – plus versions of "One Note Samba", and the Prince classic "Wanna Be Your Lover".

Billy MitchellNow's The Time – Billy Mitchell Live ... LP

We'll be the first to admit that we love tenorist Billy Mitchell, and that we think he's a heck of a player who's never really gotten his due – but we'll also admit that we think this album really doesn't show his true genius, and is kind of an open-ended session that only hints at the talents of all the players involved. All tracks are quite long, and the record's more of a blowing session than anything else – with Mitchell on tenor, alto, and soprano, Roland Prince on guitar, Wes Belcamp on piano, Ron Turso on drums, and Earl May on bass. Tracks include "My Song", "Wonderful", "TO Blues", and "Now's The Time". LP, Vinyl record album

OutkastSpeakerboxxx/The Love Below (4LP set) ... LP
LaFace, 2003. New Copy 4LP Gatefold ... $39.99
Pick any 10 words out of any Outkast album description on our pages at random, and you'll see how dearly we've loved these boys throughout the years – but truth be told, deep down we didn't think that they would be able to pull off the double album/solo album project(s). We were seriously wrong – Speakerboxxx/Love Below is HUGE in every way, and both halves are great all the way through! If you were worried Big Boi's Speakerboxxx half would be lazy southern hip hop without Andre's freaky presence throughout, you can put those fears to rest right now. Speakerboxxx is a deeply soulful electro hopping pounder from front to back – every bit as innovative as Andre's half! Tracks include "Ghettomusick" (which features one of just two appearances by A3000 on the whole disc), "Bowtie" with Sleepy Brown, "Bust" with Killer Mike, "Church", "Tomb Of The Boom" with Konkrete, Big Gipp and Ludacris, "Flip Flop" with Jay-Z, "The Way You Move" and more. A lot of press has been given to the assumption that Andre 3000 has largely forsaken hip hop on his half (The Love Below) and has instead dived head first into cosmic future funk. Well, the rumors are true. There's lots of straight up jazz piano and horn bits on the Love Below, with Andre's half serious, half tongue-in-cheek romantic soul cabaret croon way over the top. It's steeped in the classic Outkast party vibe, but with lots of Sign Of The Times-era Prince (complete with androgynous distorted vocals), Parliament and Cameo thrown into the mix. Sick, energetic genius! Tracks include the deliriously great "Hey Ya!" single, "She Lives In My Lap", "Love Hater", "Happy Valentine's Day", "Roses", "Good Day, Good Sir", "Behold A Lady", "Pink And Blue", "Spread", "Dracula's Lady" with Kelis, and more. Who the hell knows what they can possibly do to surprise us after this – but wherever Andre 3000 and Big Boi go from here, they each have yet another classic in the discography!

A dreamy little soundtrack by Piero Piccioni – not as mad as some of his more famous Italian work, but with plenty of nice touches! Piccioni's going for more of an atmospheric approach here with isolated instrumentation drifting over rhythmic string passages, in a way that's halfway between Ennio Morricone and Francis Lai. A few tracks have more whimsical musical touches – and the main theme is played by Roger Williams on piano with chorus backing. Titles include "The Chef", "The Tournament", "The Eggs Are Bewitched", "The Contest", "Prince Rodrigo", and "Rodrigo Leaves The Monastery". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible debut from vibist Joel Ross – an artist who's already given us great moments on records with Makaya McCraven, Marquis Hill, and others – but who's completely his own man here right from the start! Ross instantly emerges as a major creative force – leading the combo, composing the music, and co-producing the set – with a rich vision for the future of vibes in jazz, but one that also carries the depths of previous generations – especially in the way that Joel approaches a tune, with a subtle sense of gravity that makes each new selection a very powerful statement. The group features Immanuel Wilkins on alto, Jeremy Corren on piano, Benjamin Tiberio on bass, and Jeremy Dutton on drums – a tight quintet who work with a great sense of sympathy – and singer Gretchen Parlato also joins the group at one point. Titles include "Prince Lynn's Twin", "The Grand Struggle Against Fear", "Freda's Disposition", "Yana", "With Who Do You Learn Trust", and "Ill Relations". LP, Vinyl record album

Debut/Muzak (Japan), 1963. Used ... $19.99
One of the first European recordings from Sahib Shihab – a classic set that's the start of an amazing 60s run on the continent! Shihab here is quite different than his American dates of the 50s – bolder, and blowing with a really open, fluid sort of groove that marks a great development in his sound – using baritone sax, soprano, and flute – a range of instruments that really creates a wide range of feeling in the set! The performance is a live one, and the group is great too – with Allen Botschinsky on flugelhorn, Ole Molin on guitar, Niles Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and both Alex Riel and Bjarne Rostvold on drums. Rhythms are a key part of the set – really free and open, setting the scene for Sahib's modal genius to come – and titles include "47th Blues", "Billy Boy", and the 3-part track "Conversations". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "Charade", "Not Yet", and "Someday My Prince Will Come". CD

Buddy's working here with a relatively large group, but in a way that's really free and spontaneous – not nearly as tightly arranged as other records on the Mainstream label – and almost in the spirit of some righteous larger jazz ensemble. Players include Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, Stanley Cowell on piano and Fender Rhodes, Buster Williams on bass, Mtume on percussion, and Roland Prince on guitar – all working together at a really organic, soulfully searching level that rivals the great Frank Foster album on Mainstream from the same stretch. Terry himself plays soprano, tenor, flute, and percussion – and titles include "Stealin Gold", "Abscretions", "Kamili", "Sodom & Gomorrah", and the extended "Awareness" suite. CD

The album's got more than enough propulsion to soar to the skies – with White on massive drums – working with a killer batch of musicians that includes Patrick Gleason on keyboards and electronics, Onaje Allan Gumbs on acoustic and electric piano, Jimmy Smith and Larry Young on organ, Larry Coryell and Doug Rodriguez on guitars, and Tom Harrell on flugelhorn – all working together in a razor-sharp mix of acoustic and electric elements! Titles include "Mating Drive", "Venusian Summer", "Chicken Fried Steak", and "Prince Of The Sea". CD
