✨✧ Low ProfileWe're In This Together ... CD
Profile, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
WC and DJ Aladdin working together as the producer/DJ duo Low Profile – definitely paving the way for more famous west coast rap to come – on a still strong, long under-appreciated album on Profile! WC would go on to make a bigger name for himself with Madd Circle, West Side Connection and solo endeavors, but man, this early LP with the underrated Aladdin not only feels live a pivotal bridge from the mid-to-late 80s gritty west coast rap sound to the G Funk to come, it's simply a strong record that stands firmly on it's own. Funk-steeped street knowledge, without a ton of street posturing. Excellence! Includes the standouts "Funky Song" and "Pay Ya Dues", plus "Easy Money", "Keep Em' Flowin", "Aladdin's On A Rampage", "How Ya Livin" and "Make Room For The Dub B U" – plus the bonus track "No Mercy".

Harold McKinneyVoices & Rhythms Of The Creative Profile (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tribe/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke PearsonProfile ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good+ ... $49.99
Early early work by Duke Pearson – and one of his few trio sessions ever! The album's a great way to hear Pearson's lyrical soulful style at work, as he's playing in an unfettered setting with Gene Taylor on bass and Lex Humphries on drums – really stretching out on piano, in a way that you don't often hear on some of his larger group albums. The album features two of his own compositions "Gate City Bop" and "Two Mile Ride", plus versions of "Black Coffee", "Taboo", and "Witchcraft". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ken RhodesProfile ... LP
Amayana (Germany), 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's Ken Rhodes, not Fender Rhodes – but the acoustic pianist is more than funky enough on his own – even without any electricity in the mix! The set's got this wonderful rhythm duo – drummer George Greene and bassist Joachim Knauer – who often come on with this really full, frenzied approach – leaping forward along with Ken's tightly comping style on piano, so that the tunes almost hit this funk-modal style that's really unique – and completely sublime all the way through! A few mellower moments round things out nicely – and give the album a depth that recalls some of the Jazz Hip Trio records from the European scene of the same time. Titles include "The Profile", "Stay Be Me", "The Journey", "Triangle", "Eigoob", and "Nothing New". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a few light surface marks from the old inner sleeve, but plays great overall.)

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetLegendary Profile ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some gloss separation at the edges.)

✨✧ Run-DMCRaising Hell ... LP
Profile, 1986. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
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.

This is the record where Run-DMC transitioned from their earlier style that put their own distinctive stamp on early-to-mid 80s east coast rap, to the rap group who fearlessly put rock music on notice that rap was coming to takeover. Amazing! Includes "Jam Master Jammin", "Can You Rock It Like This", "King Of Rock", "Rock The House", "You're Blind", "You Talk Too Much", "It's Not Funny" and "Darryl And Joe (Krush-Groove 3)".

✨✧ Charles MingusJazz In Detroit – Strata Concert Gallery (5CD set) ... CD
Strata/BBE (UK), 1973. New Copy 5 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ Charles MingusPithecanthropus Erectus (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Atlantic (Japan), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... About February 1, 2020
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

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".

Hayden ThompsonRock A Billy Gal – The Sun Years Plus ... CD
Sun/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 23.99
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".

✨✧ Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 MingusPithecanthropus Erectus ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good- ... Temporarily 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
