Modern Jazz QuartetLegendary Profile ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
A cool 70s album from the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one that has John Lewis playing a bit of electric piano, in addition to his usual acoustic keys! At some level, it almost feels like the group's working off the lessons learned during their Apple Records years – and are also picking up some elements of Milt Jackson's work on other projects in the late 60s – as the record has a soulful groove you might not normally expect from the MJQ, and less of the more academic tones that had marked some of their earlier 60s recordings for Atlantic. Tunes are really nicely focused, but still have that strong sense of space and sound that's the Lewis' hallmark – and Jackson's nicely-pointed vibes sound really great next to Lewis' keys, whether acoustic or electric. Titles include "The Legendary Profile", "Valeria", "Misty Roses", "The Martyr", and "What Now My Love". CD

✨✧ Harold McKinneyVoices & Rhythms Of The Creative Profile (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Tribe/Octave (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Rob Base & DJ E-Z RockIt Takes Two ... LP
Profile, 1988. Very Good ... $14.99
This might not be the most important or vital album in the history of hip hop – but it's got some indistibutable, unstoppable party jams all the same! "It Takes Two" will always be guaranteed to rock any party – and if Rob Base on the mic isn't anything to write home about, at the time Profile dropped this album, even the Jimmy Castor, ESG and James Brown samples weren't totally played out – and still sound great today. 10 tracks in all, also includes the hit "Joy & Pain", plus "Make It Hot", "Check This Out" and "Get On The Dance Floor".

Run-DMCRaising Hell (180 gram picture disc) ... LP
Profile/Sony, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.98
The massive third album from Run DMC – made at the top of their game – an pivotal effort that brought them to peak popularity and helped break hip hop in a huge way in the pop culture landscape! Part of the album's strength is its guitar-heavy sound on some of the grooves – produced by Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons with a classic early Def Jam vibe, in the same manner that helped the Beastie Boys get their records in the hands of folks who'd never buy hip hop otherwise! That sound comes to culmination on the album's hit collaboration with Aerosmith on a remake of "Walk This Way", resulting in the commercial breakthrough, but the real triumph here is the increased complexity in both the lyricism, and the way Jam Master Jay serves up their beats – which makes for a stone classic all the way through, on tracks that include "Peter Piper", "It's Tricky", "My Adidas", "Proud To Be Black", "You Be Illin'", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Tough, righteous rap from King Sun – 1989's XL – a set that still looms large after all these years! King Sun dropped knowledge from a Five Percenter influence with a flow that's as smooth, solid and authoritive as any Bronx rapper of the day – and the production by Sun Born sounds great to this this day. This one was out of print for far too long! Includes "Hey Love", which uses the "Moments In Love" sample by Art Of Noise, and is standout produced by Cut Master DC. Also includes "Lethal Weapon", 'Ft Tape", "It's A Heat Up" and "Time To Go". This long-awaited Traffic remastered edition includes the earlier single cuts "Mythological Rapper" and "Christmas In The City" – both on CD for the first time. CD

The classic debut of Poor Righteous Teachers – a creative benchmark for the Five Percenter movement – and one best records to come from the dawn of the 90s hip hop scene! Tight group rap of the highest caliber – with a distinct approach, courtesy of leader and lyricist Wise Intelligent. He is both those words! Genuine intellect on display, but it's playful and accessible, too, with timeless blueprint production all the way. Includes "Rock Dis Funky Joint", "Time To Say Peace", "Can I Start This?", "Butt Naked Booty Bless", "Shakiyla", "Strictly Ghetto", "Holy Trinity", "Style Dropped/Lesson Taught", "Word From The Wise", "Poor Righteous Teachers" and more.

The classic self-titled debut LP from Run-DMC – one that changed hip hop (and much of modern pop and rock) forever! There's little we can add to the canon for this record. Run DMC ushered in a new era in contemporary urban culture, a harder hitting style of rap the managed to bust out of the inner cities and into consciousness of an entire generation. You can literally call this album revolutionary, something only a handful of artists can ever hope to achieve. Amazing! Tracks include "It's Like That", "Sucker MC's", "Rock Box", "Jay's Game", "Hard Times", "30 Days", "Hollis Crew", "Wake Up", and "It's Like That". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Just Sold Out!
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes! CD

✨✧ Charles MingusJazz In Detroit – Strata Concert Gallery (5CD set) ... CD
Strata/BBE (UK), 1973. New Copy 5 CDs ... $24.99 35.99
A fantastic live performance from Charles Mingus – recorded in Detroit, with a slightly unusual group – and done with the more open, freewheeling quality that grace his live recordings of the early 60s! The set was recorded at the Strata Gallery – and has some of the deeper spiritual currents of the work on Detroit's Strata label – as the quintet burns beautifully with contributions from Don Pullen on piano, John Stubblefield on tenor, Joe Gardner on trumpet, and the great Roy Brooks on drums! It's interesting both to hear Mingus without Dannie Richmond on drums – and Brooks at a time when he was at his most righteous – and the pairing really seems to bring a lot of the best energy out of the other players too. The super-expanded set features material from a few nights of performance, with a few alternate takes – and titles include "The Man Who Never Sleeps", "Pithecanthropus Erectus", "Peggy's Blue Skylight", "Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress Then Blue Silk", "Dizzy Profile", and "C Jam Blues".

KPM/Be With (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A record with a lot of visual impact, and one with a fair bit of audio impact too – given that the tracks are a great mix of funk, jazz, and some of the more dramatic styles from the KPM sound library of the 70s! The music is nicely varied, but all in the best KPM modes – as even the mellower moments still have a key sort of hook – and the album itself veers more towards the kind of upbeat, groovy tunes that usually make KPM so great! Artists include Brit sound library giants, Johnny Pearson, Johnny Scott, Steve Gray, and Brian Bennett – and titles include "Low Profile", "Nuplex", "Sequence Of Events", "Source Of Energy", "Canaveral Scape", "Keeping Pace", "Giant's Causeway", and "Jaguar".

✨✧ VariousTrue Soul Vol 2 – Deep Sounds From The Left Of Stax (CD & DVD) ... CD
Now Again, 1960s/1970s. Used CD/DVD ... $9.99
Volume 2 of Now Again's True Soul revival – giving the legacy treatment to the deep funky soul of the amazing Arkansas independent label of the 60s & 70s! It's filled with far-reaching southern soul and funk, some that goes toe-to-toe with the higher profile sounds of Stax and Hi when it comes down to insistently emotional grit. That said, True Soul has a roster that rolls in more a genre-defying styles, without sparing the soulful bedrock – the label's True Soul, after all! Strains of psychedelic funk flavor many of the recordings, and in the later years, some 70s boogie, spacey keys and other elements. Includes numbers by Albert Smith, Thomas East, Classic Funk, Larry Davis, John Craig, Portrait, Le'Chance and more. 18 tracks on Volume 2, including 8 previously unreleased tracks: "The Thrill Is Gone" by Albert Smith, "Just A Trip" and "Sister Funk (Instrumental)" by Thomas East, 'Down Home Funk (Full Version)" by Larry Davis, "The Funk's Gonna Fly" by Classic Funk, "Thank You" by York Wilborn's Psychedelic Six, "I Don't Want To Do It" by John Craig, "Get Down" and "Gigolo" by Le'Chance, "I Took Your Love (To Be True)" by Soul Mind And Body" and more. Volume 2, like the first one, comes with the bonus DVD featuring live footage from a 1973 True Soul Revue television program, and and is hardbound with the 56-page booklet – full of vintage performance, studio and promo photos, discographies, deeply felt notes by Eothen Alapatt, plus interviews conducted by Egon. A truly epic effort from Egon and Now Again – with a setlist that's just as exceptionally well compiled as Vol 1, if not even slightly more so! . CD

The base component to this blend is a coffee from Mexico and grown and milled at a cooperative called El Eden – very unique for a Mexican coffee, with a flavor profile that includes blueberry, banana, and baker's chocolate to give the blend a bit of depth. This base is then highlighted with a coffee from Guatemala grown by Finca San Jeronimo Miramar – which adds both body, and some lighter notes of toffee and praline – to give the whole thing a wonderful sun-drenched finish!

✨✧ Hayden ThompsonRock A Billy Gal – The Sun Years Plus ... CD
Sun/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of tracks by Hayden Thompson – an artist who briefly recorded for Sun Records at the end of the 50s, but who also left behind lots of other rare singles and other gems too! Hayden's not one of those more standard rockabilly singers – as he has this really raw, unbridled style, and a fair bit of vocal twang too – which means that most of these numbers are on the wilder side of the spectrum, even if the tunes are nice and lean! And while Hayden's gotten reissue treatment in various ways over the years, this set really tops the rest – as it features a number of unissued early trafcks, and rare singles on labels that include Von, Arlen, Profile, and Beat – and even a full album's worth of material recorded in Chicago for the Sunjay label. 35 tracks in all – including "Oh Mama", "Blues Blues Blues", "Love My Baby", "This Old Windy City", "Lonely For My Baby", "Dream Love", "Tom Thumb", "Pardon Me", "Queen Bee", "Rock A Billy Girl", "I Guess I'd Better Be Moving Along", "Congratulations To You Joe", "The Key To My Kingdom", "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", and "Call Me Shorty".

✨✧ Charles MingusPithecanthropus Erectus ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
An amazing record – quite possibly one of the greatest jazz albums of all time, and a session that has Charles Mingus stepping boldly forward in a whole new direction! The album shakes loose the sometimes too-academic modern tones of Mingus albums from the previous year or two – and unleashes the bold, raw emotion that would drive him firmly into the 60s – a new sense of freedom in music, filled with poetry, anger, joy, and life! The tracks are all quite long – and played by a sharp quintet with Mingus on bass, Jackie McLean on alto sax, JR Monterose on tenor, Mal Waldron on piano, and Willie Jones on drums. Titles include "Pithecantrhopus Erectus", "A Foggy Day", "Love Chant", and "Profile of Jackie". The whole thing bubbles over with an anger and intensity that you hardly find in other Mingus albums, and if you've ever heard a weak Mingus album, and wondered what all the fuss was about, you owe it to yourself to own this one! We promise that it will never ever let you down. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove and AT etch. Vinyl has some cloudiness on side one, but plays like a VG- record. Cover has some light gloss peel around the edges and small stains on back – but front looks nice overall, and cover has no splits.)
