Frank BallardRhythm Blues Party ... LP
Sun, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An obscure soul set on the legendary Sun Records label – raw vocals from Frank Ballard, done in a style that still has a few older R&B currents in the mix, but which is definitely pointed strongly towards a 60s groove! Backings are by the band of tenorist Phillip Reynolds, and the sound here is a lot more in the King Records mode than you'd expect from Sun – plenty of grit in the grooves, and with some great work on piano, guitar, and tenor next to the vocals! Frank earlier sung with tenor man Curtis Amy, but he's really at the top of his game here – and titles include "Trouble Down The Road", "Rollin In", "After Hours", "Do Wa Diddi", "Is Anybody There", and "Just Leave It With Me Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ByarsRhythm & Blues Of The 20s ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2022. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Don't let the title confuse you, as it's not the 1920s, but the 2020s – a fresh set of original material all penned by tenorist Chris Byars, and delivered here with a very rhythmic groove! There's a wonderful four horn frontline to the set – Byars on tenor, Zaid Nasser on alto, Stefano Doglioni on bass clarinet, and John Mosca on trombone – all working in a piano-less sextet that features Ari Roland on bass and Phil Stewart on drums – leaping along nicely with the sharp changes in the tunes by Byars, which allow for plenty of interplay between the reeds, and lots of room for breakout solos too! Titles include "Shimmering", "Interstate", "Salute To The Mailbox", "New Cards", "Minor Miracle", and "I'm Here For You". CD

Ray CharlesBirth Of Soul – The Complete Atlantic Rhythm & Blues Recordings 1952 to 1959 (3 CD box set) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1950s. Used 3 CDs ... $14.99
You know, over the years, you get exposed to so many cliches about Ray Charles that it's easy to forget how great he is – but you won't after hearing this set! This totally essential box pushes way past any other collection to pull together the raw early R&B sides by Ray – much harder stuff than any of his later country soul work, and way more rockin than even his instrumental sides that show up more as "jazz" efforts. No, this stuff kicks ass – and is right up there with the best 50s R&B work by artists like Tiny Bradshaw, Wynonie Harris, or Ray Brown. Plus, a huge amount of the cuts on here never really appeared on full LPs, so it's not like you'll be able to track them down that easily on other reissues. There's a wealth of excellent material here that will open up a whole new side of Ray for you – and which will fill in loads of holes if you've already got some of his work. There's a total of 53 tracks in all, plus a great set of notes and a very handsome box – and titles include "What Kind Of Man Are You", "Get On The Right Track", "Leave My Woman Alone", "Roll With My Baby", "Jumpin In The Morning", "It Should Have Been Me", "Feelin Sad", "Mess Around", "I Wonder Who", "Blackjack", "Greenbacks", "A Fool For You", "Hard Times", "A Bit Of Soul", "I Want To Know", "It's Alright", "Ain't That Love", and "That's Enough". All cuts are vocal – and this is some of the most satisfying Ray Charles you could ever buy! CD

Leroy Kirkland & OthersI'll Be Rockin – Arranger, Writer, & Session Musician – The Rhythm & Blues Producers ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A great look at the mighty talents of Leroy Kirkland – not much of a lead star on his own, but a fantastic force in the worlds of soul, blues, and R&B in the postwar years! Leroy's one of these guys who really starts to show up when you pay attention to credits on older singles – a great songwriter, a hell of an arranger, and a sometime producer too – a talent who really finds a way to take older bluesy styles and modernize them for the growing urban postwar audience – often mixing raw vocals with jazzy instrumentation, at a level that brings forward some of the jump blues modes of the late 40s too. The set's overflowing with gems from a variety of different labels – 27 tracks in all – including "Sloppin" by Pearl Woods & The Gems, "When You Dance" by Billy Storm, "All In My Mind" by Maxine Brown, "Who's That Knocking" by The Genies, "Night Ride" by King's Henchmen, "Stay A Little Longer" by The Equadors, "Sentimental Daddy-O" by Brook Benton, "The Bear Hug" by Mr Bear & His Bearcats, "Stop Talkin & Start Walkin" by Annie Laurie, "I'll Be Sittin I'll Be Rockin" by Larry Darnell, "Give A Little Time" by Milt Trenier, "You Can't Stay Here" by Melvin Smith, "Flip & Skip" by Claude Cloud & His Thunderclaps, and "Mumbles Blues" by Big Connie – plus "Paramount Rock" by Leroy Kirkland himself.

Clyde McPhatterShot Of Rhythm & Blues – The Amy Recordings ... CD
Amy/Sundazed, Mid/Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
Great lost work from one of the best-ever voices in R&B! After his work in the Drifters, Clyde moved onto a checkered solo career that had him moving from sweet R&B ballads to soulful uptown numbers to some occasional rawer stuff. There's plenty of great moments in Clyde's recordings for labels like Atlantic and Mercury, but these sides from the mid 60s are some of his best and hardest to find sides from those solo years. The tracks have a bit of a southern touch to them, which is no surprise since some were produced by Rick Hall at the Fame Studios, and since most of the work coming out on the Amy label had some sort of a rootsy groove to it. As you can guess, this approach works great for Clyde's voice, which is still in great shape here, and the CD collects together a number of great tracks that have only ever been available as singles. Titles include "I Dreamt I Died", "Lonely People Can't Afford To Cry", "Everybody Loves A Good Time", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Sweet & Innocent", and "I'm Not Going To Work Today". CD

Melvyn PriceRhythm & Blues ... CD
Wax Poetics, 1974. Used ... $9.99
A lost bit of 70s soul jazz and global funk percussion from conguero & trombonist Melvyn Price – an incredible set of heavily rhythmic grooves recorded in Stockholm in 1974 – originally a private press effort, and the most impressive rediscovery yet from Wax Poetics Records! Melvyn grew up outside of Detroit, and he cut his teeth with the freeform Afrikan Folk Ensemble before relocating to Sweden in the 60s, where he thrived in the country's healthy and creative jazz scene. He's joined by a great group of international players who bring diverse flavors to the overall sound, with Latin and African styles of percussion from Price, Jon Dill and Luis Agudo, drums by Gunnar Nyberg and Fredrik Noren, piano by Bjorn Wolff, fluidly jazzy tenor sax from Ed Epstein, and bass by Guy Roellinger, who's work here often sounds like the stuff of funky 70s soundtracks. If we can't quite peg the bluesy bits promised by the title, the rhythms are absolutely impeccable – with the conga and percussion as the driving force of the sound! Titles include "Voodoo Love Dance", "Toward Brazil", "Behind Kungstradgarden", "Happiness Is. . .", "Five O'Clock Traffic" and "Last Train". CD

✨✧ VariousDust My Rhythm & Blues – The Flair Records R&B Story 1953 to 1955 ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
One of the most important indie labels of the postwar years – heard here in a flurry of great tracks that really show them at their finest! This excellent double-length set brings together magical moments from a time when the Flair imprint was really hitting on all burners – recording key vocal, instrumental, blues, and doo wop tracks that would go onto have a huge impact on generations to come – mixed here with a host of titles that haven't been on CD before! The package digs deeper than any look at Flair we've ever seen – and that's saying a lot, given that Ace Records was already giving the label their due a few decades before – and all the new material sits strongly next to classics that make the 50 track collection one of the best R&B collections from the 78rpm era that we've heard in a long long time. Titles include "She Wants To Rock" and "Getting High" by The Flairs, "Loosely" and "Cuban Get Away" by Ike Turner, "Chop House" by Blinky Allen, "Quit Hangin Around Me" by Saunders King, "Early In The Morning" and "Can't Stop Lovin" by Elmore James, "Hello Baby" and "Baby Beat It" by Big Duke, "Midnight Hours Journey" by Johnny Ace, "Night Howler" by Billy Gale, "You Better Hold Me" by James Reed, "I've Got The Feeling" by Baby Parham, "This Time It's Real" by Ricky & Jennell, "Send Him Back" by Shirley Gunter, "An Angel Cried" by Anna Marie, "Blue Mambo" by Bobby Rey, and "Love Me Love Me Love Me" by The Chimes.

Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 40s/1950s. Used ... $12.99
The great second volume of this genre-defining series – a set that looks at a really unique strain of R&B in the 50s – a special sort of groove that mixed together jazz, Latin, and other soulful styles! There's plenty of percussion on most of these numbers, but there's also lots of bluesy elements too – electric guitar, tenor, and firey piano – mixed with soulful vocals that leap wonderfully out of the vivid arrangements – at a level that really makes these tunes pretty darn unique! Some cuts have a vibe that's like jump blues, taking a drink of 50s Latin – while others almost have a Spanish Harlem sort of hybrid, but years before the later Latin Soul scene – a really vibrant mix of modes that keeps things exciting throughout. Titles include "All I Have Is You" by Johnny Oliver, "I Love Your Many Ways" by Lincoln Chase, "Calypso Blues" by Zilla Mayes, "Jimmy's Jive" by Jimmy Nolen, "All Night Long" by Four Blazes, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Satisfied" by Billy Emerson, "Chano" by Ron Rico with Sax Kari, "Later Gator" by Freddie Mitchell, "Denga Denga" by Ashton Savoy, "Gee I Love You" by John McKinnye & The Premiers, and "Summertime" by Red Saunders.

King/Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
During the 50s, King Records was one of the biggest labels in R&B – and as the soul years of the 60s approached, the company kept the flag flying strong with a host of new artists, underground soul and blues singers who helped define the new sound of the decade with a rich approach to the music. This set features 24 tracks from those years – mostly obscure numbers by artists that have long fallen by the wayside, but who recorded for King next to James Brown, Little Willie John, and other important early soul artists – often matching or beating their intensity with their brief turn in the studio! The set features tracks that were mostly singles on the King and Federal labels – with titles that include "My Kinda Girl" by Hannibal, "You're Welcome To The Club" by Lee Shot Williams, "Just A Little Bit" by Tiny Topsy, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "Burnt Toast & Black Coffee" by Mike Pedicin, "I'm Better Off Now" by The Premiers, "She Made My Blood Run Cold" by Ike Turner, "You Won't Want Me Around" by Mike Williams, "You're Using Me" by The King Pins, and "Don't Be So Mean" by William Patton.

A long-awaited follow-up to one of our favorite compilations of King Records soul music – a set that does a perfect job of showing the label's strong roots in R&B, and it's important force in 60s soul!

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
Raw rompers from the Louisiana scene of the late 50s and early 60s – a more R&B twist on the sort of material covered in the great Boppin By The Bayou series from Ace! The package features some wicked rare singles, mixed with even more obscure unreleased tracks – all pulled together to showcase a style that's kind of like a grittier take on the sound of New Orleans – bits of rock and blues mixed in with the soul – all folded together with stomping rhythms that never know when to quit – and which really send home the tunes' raw vocals, sharp tenor, and tight guitar lines! The package features almost 30 tracks in all, plus great notes too – and titles include "Go Go Cat" by Flo, "Crazy About Love" by Elizabeth, "Rocky" by Rockin Sidney & His All Stars, "I Don't Care" by Tabby Thomas, "Honey Bee" by Blue Charlie, "Pretty Little Dolly" by Mad Dog Sheffield, "Sound The Bell" by Clarence Garlow, "Cool Down Baby" by Jerry Morris, and "I Wanna Know I Know Now" by Big Chenier.

Tuff City, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from a singer we'd never heard before – but who should have been huge, given the quality of these tunes! Pearl's got an amazing sound that's right out of the "birth of soul" era in which she recorded – a hard soul approach that's steeped in influences from earlier R&B years, but which comes across with a straightforward power that echoes later classics by 60s divas like Aretha Franklin or Fontella Bass. The set's one of the best we've ever seen from the Tuff City soul archives – wonderfully annotated, in a way that tells the full story of Pearl's lost years – and which really gets at the strength and quality of this amazingly soulful work. The set features 19 tracks in all – and titles include "Be My Baby", "My Love Is Your Love", "Sippin Sorrow", "I'll Be A Crybaby From Now On", "Sloppin", "One More Time", "Don't Tell It All", "Stickum Up Baby", "Fool Like Me", and "The Last Mile".

Captain High (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The "exotic" in the title is certainly well-placed – as many of these tracks take a familiar instrument, and use it in a slightly unusual way – a saxophone, piano, electric guitar, or something else – often set to grooves that start out in an R&B, early rock, or jazz-based style, but move into much groovier territory too! Some of these numbers have the spirit of the cuts we love in the Jukebox Mambo series – and others draw in elements of postwar Latin or exotica styles – while still keeping things pretty soulful overall! CD brings together material from the long-deleted Katanga and Ahbe Casabe 10" vinyl releases – with tracks that include "Nene Aman" by Artie Barsamian, "Green Onions" by Claus Ogerman, "Classie's Whip"b y Classie Ballou, "Cleopatra Kick" by Jack LaForge, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloud, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Shadow Street" by Kip Tyler, "Cleopatra" by Jamie Coe, "Katanga" by Ike Turner, "Lucky Me" by Chance Hallyday, "Ahbe Casabe" by Marti Barris, and "Thirteen Women & One Man" by Dickie Thompson – plus two bonus tracks "Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton and "Pu Chun Ga (Sweet One)" by Elena Madera.

Afro Blues Quintet Plus OneNew Directions In Sound ... CD
Mira/BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Smoking grooves from an incredible group – the amazing Afro Blues Quintet, a combo with a sound like no other! These guys were never one for stardom, but during the mid and late 60s, they burned up the west coast scene with an incredible blend of vibes, piano, and reeds – often kicked up nicely with some hard-rolling rhythm work that gave their tracks a similar mod groove to classics by Johnny Lytle, Ramsey Lewis, or Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers! But the real difference with the ABQ (if we can call them that!) is that they had a really spacious approach to their sound – never putting too much into the mix, and instead using the space between the notes every bit as much as the notes themselves. The grooves are great, and since most of this work has never been reissued, the set's totally fresh to the ears of most listeners! As usual, the folks at BGP have done a great job with the notes – and the set features 22 tracks from the group's Mira, Surrey, and Crestview recordings – titles that include "Monkey Time", "Freaks", "La La La", "Southside Habit", "Mirror Image", "Afro Rock", "Evening Of The Beast", "Spartacus", "Candie Luv", and "Our Mambo".

Gene AmmonsHi Fidelity Jam Session (aka Happy Blues) ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good ... $39.99
Gene Ammons in a mighty nice setting – working here in an open-ended jam session style that brings all his best live energy into play at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder! The set's got a crackle that really goes beyond the earlier, shorter bop recordings from Ammons – and a bit more darkness than some of his 60s sessions too – a really wonderful balance of open and tight playing, not just from Jug's tenor, but also from Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, and Duke Jordan on piano! Rhythm's handled by Addison Farmer on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and the mighty Candido also adds in some congas, to really give things a kick. The set list includes four long tracks – "Happy Blues", "The Great Lie", "Madhouse", and "Can't We Be Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles BrackeenRhythm X – The Music Of Charles Brackeen (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99 44.99
The only album ever cut as a leader by tenor saxophonist Charles Brackeen during his early years – and a real standout in the catalog of the legendary Strata East label! The set's got an unusual history – in that it's part of the Dolphy Series, recorded before the label started by Clifford Jordan – as a way of giving a strong showcase to so many new ideas that were bursting in jazz during the late 60s! Here, Brackeen's tenor is set up with a trio of musicians most familiarly associated with Ornette Coleman – Don Cherry on trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums – a unit that's completely on fire, and freer than before – yet each graced with such strong individuality, every aspect of the record is a complete delight. Brackeen is amazing (why the hell didn't he record more like this at the time?) – but the bass, trumpet, and drums are all very distinct too – the perfect power of free improvisation when it's done right. Titles include "Rhythm X", "Hour Glass", "CB Blues", and "Charles Concept". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy's definitely got rhythm here – as the album's got a sweetly grooving sound! The session's recorded with a Swedish combo, but it's often got some bluesier American modes in the mix – styles that are almost a bit more R&B than usual for Eldridge, especially given that he also sings a bit on the set! Players include Ove Lind on clarinet, Carl Henrik Norin on tenor, Charles Norman on piano and harpsichord, Rolf Berg on guitar, and Andrew Burman on drums – and titles include "Scotty", "The Heat's On", "No Rolling Blues", "Noppin John", "They Raided The Joint", "Saturday Night Fish Fry (parts 1 & 2)", and "Echoes Of Harlem".

Herb EllisHerb Ellis Meets Stan Getz, Roy Eldridge, Art Pepper & Jimmy Giuffre (Nothing But The Blues/Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1957/1959. Used ... $8.99
We don't normally think of Herb as a bluesy player – but the title is pretty darn honest, given the great sound of this set! Herb's playing in a really mellow and laidback style for this session – working with Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Ray Brown, and Stan Levey on a set of bluesy tunes that feature his guitar in the lead, working through some magical solos that are far more expressive than on some of his work on other albums from the time. The record's a genuine surprise, and a real lost Verve treasure – as Ellis steps out with a great tone and some nice rootsy solos on tracks that include "Patti Cake", "Blues For Junior", "Blues For Janet", "Pap's Blues", and "Tin Roof Blues". The second album here – Herb Ellis Meets Jimmy Giuffre – is a heck of a great little record – thanks in no small part to saxophonist Jimmy Giuffre! The style here is in a nice space between Giuffre's earlier work at Capitol and some of the gentler sounds of his later trio sides for Verve and Atlantic – and the lineup features the fuller horn lineup of the post-Four Brothers years, but also makes the instruments step out slowly and spaciously, using Ellis' guitar in a way that's not unlike Jim Hall's sound in Giuffre's later trio. Other players include Bud Shank, Art Pepper, Richie Kamuca, and Jim Hall (on rhythm guitar) – and titles include "A Country Boy", "My Old Flame", "Goose Grease", "You Know", "Remember", and "Patricia".

Black Lion, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
An album that has European jazz great Stephane Grapelli revising the format of his legendary Hot Club Of France with guitarist Django Reinhardt – but in a very different mode, given that this group features electric guitar from Barney Kessel! Kessel is great, and his warm, round tones do very little to change things up from his usual groove – but the setting is definitely a fresh one for Barney, given that the combo features rhythm guitar from Nini Rosso, and sweetly-crafted violin lines from Grappelli! The rest of the group features Michel Gaudry on bass and Jean-Louis Viale on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
(US promo pressing. Cover has a cut corner, some yellowing from age, and a DJ Copy stamp in back.)

Miltinho (Milton Banana)Rhythm & The Sound Of Bossa Nova ... LP
Audio Fidelity/Honey Pie, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 28.99 About February 17, 2023
An excellent album of hard bossa cuts – played by drummer Antonio Da Souza, aka Miltinho, aka Milton Banana, with backing by Oscar Castro Neves! The band is a quartet led by Oscar Castro-Neves – with some nice piano by him, and some excellent alto work by the great Leo Wright! The record's a prime example of the excellent style of Banana, Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer – in that it's extremly lively, and all over the kit, with sort of a melodic drumming component that's perfect for bossa nova. Titles include "Influencia Da Jazz", "Bossa Nova Blues", "O Apito No Samba", "Boato", and "Nao Faz Assim". Quite rare, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Art PepperArt Pepper Meets The Rhythm Section ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1957. Used ... $5.99
One of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential East meets West jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for the first and only time (it's said that Art didn't even know of the date until the morning of the session). Pepper is one of the few alto players to really establish his own voice on the horn, without aping Bird, and his emotive playing really shines here. A definitive version of "Straight Life" is on this album, along with "Waltz Me Blues", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", and "Star Eyes". CD

Rita ReysI Got Rhythm – Rare & Unissued Recordings 1949 to 1964 ... CD
MCN (Netherlands), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
A treasure trove of rare work from Dutch singer Rita Reys – one of the best jazz vocalists on the European scene during the postwar years! Rita's got this way of singing deeply, yet still keeping things swinging – a really great balance that has her never getting too emotive, certainly not in ways you might normally associate with European singers – yet also still managing to bring a great sort of depth to her music! Jazz formats dominate throughout – and these rare archive sessions feature Rita singing with the groups of Pim Jacobs, Piet Van Dijk, Bo Edgar, Ove Lind, Mat Mathews, and Lars Gullin – all with a great deal of clarity, every bit as much as you'd hear from Reys' studio recordings of the period. Titles include "Charge Account", "Mean To Me", "I Got Rhythm", "There's A Small Hotel", "Get Out Of Town", "Willow Weep For Me", "All Of You", "When The Blues Come On", and "She's Funny That Way".

Buddy RichBlues Caravan ... CD
Verve, 1961. Used ... $3.99 7.99
A lost gem from Buddy – recorded in the years between his more famous work for Verve in the 50s, and his later 60s comeback as the hard-swinging leader of a big band! The album's a really unusual one for Buddy, in that it really plays around a lot with the rhythms in the tunes – not just using the "blues" phrasing that you might expect from the title, but also hitting bits of lighter, Latiny styles – as well as some slightly modal moments that emerge from longer solo drum passages by Rich. Part of the album's strength is the players – as Buddy's working here with Mike Mainieri on vibes, Sam Most on flute, and Rolf Ericson on trumpet – as well as the unusual rhythm team of Johnny Morris on piano and Wyatt Ruther on bass, neither of whom we really know. Tracks include "Caravan", "Blow'n The Blues Away", "BR Blues", "Late Date", and "I Remember Clifford". CD

Horace SilverCape Verdean Blues ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... $4.99
A classic set from Horace Silver – one in which his quintet is expanded by some great guest work from trombonist JJ Johnson! Johnson's at the height of his 60s powers here – blowing with that lean, soulful style that always made any record sparkle – and although he's only on half of the tracks on the date, his presence is more than worth the heavy billing he gets on the cover! Other great members of the group include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, and rhythm from Bob Cranshaw on bass and Roger Humphries on drums – all coming together with that wonderful 60s Silver groove. The set's filled with sweetly grooving originals by Horace – a blueprint for the exotic style of soul jazz he helped to forge at the time – great writing all around, on titles that include "Mo Joe", "Nutville", "Bonita", "The African Queen", and "Pretty Eyes".

✨✧ Horace SilverTokyo Blues ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $14.99
One of Horace Silver's greatest records ever – and the album that always makes us remember how many of his tunes are now etched in the memory of modern jazz! The album's got a slightly exotic bent that you might guess from the title – a furthering of the sound that Silver first started on his own after breaking with Art Blakey – a hint of more cosmic modes to come in soul jazz, yet still served up here with more of the punch you might expect from 60s Blue Note. The group is great – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet and Junior Cook on tenor – both super-tight at the start of the tunes, then breaking off into deeply personal territory on their solos. Rhythm is from Gene Taylor on bass and John Harris on drums – the latter a lesser-known compatriot of Silver, but one with a nicely loose sensibility that really adds a lot to the record. The writing is great – and titles include "Sayanara Blues", "Tokyo Blues", "Ah So", "Cherry Blossom", and "Too Much Sake". CD

Ike Turner & His Kings Of RhythmIke's Instrumentals ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
The heaviest side of the great Ike Turner – early instrumental singles cut for Sue Records – all of them super-searing, super-heavy, and usually featuring some great guitar from Ike himself! Ike's best known as a soulful partner with Tina Turner – but before he hooked up with her as a singer, he was already leading a tight combo of his own – the super-sharp Kings Of Rhythm, who are really hitting their stride here – and work to support Ike in this wonderful pre-funk blend of soul, blues, and R&B – all with a razor-sharp edge. The titles alone should give you an idea of the nature of the tracks – with names like "Prancin", "The New Breed (parts 1 & 2)", "Katanga", "The Groove", "The Gully", "Trackdown Twist", "Cubano Jump", "Go To It", and "The Wild One" – and the package features 22 tracks in all – including a long "All The Blues All The Time" medley from a Crown Records album, two recorded under the name Icky Renrut, and a few more singles for the Flair label.

Sonny Boy WilliamsonReal Folk Blues ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Not as folksy as you might think from the title – thanks to a really powerful presentation by Sonny Boy Williamson! The style here has echoes of Bo Diddley or Jimmy Reed's sense of rhythm – a more upbeat and electrified Chicago approach than Chess was serving up a decade before – obviously influenced by the strength of R&B, but also still presented with a sound that's stripped-down and raw enough to be called blues. Players on the sessions include Matt Murphy and Luther Tucker on guitars, Willie Dixon on bass, Otis Spann on piano, and Lafayette Leake on organ – and titles include "One Way Out", "Too Young To Die", "Trust My Baby", "Peach Tree", "Down Child", "Bring It On Home", "Too Old To Think", and "Got To Move".

✨✧ Gene AmmonsHappy Blues (Jazz Classics Series) ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Gene Ammons in a mighty nice setting – working here in an open-ended jam session style that brings all his best live energy into play at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder! The set's got a crackle that really goes beyond the earlier, shorter bop recordings from Ammons – and a bit more darkness than some of his 60s sessions too – a really wonderful balance of open and tight playing, not just from Jug's tenor, but also from Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, and Duke Jordan on piano! Rhythm's handled by Addison Farmer on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and the mighty Candido also adds in some congas, to really give things a kick. The set list includes four long tracks – "Happy Blues", "The Great Lie", "Madhouse", and "Can't We Be Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1979. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet and subtle genius from two of the most understated players in jazz – a really great little record that makes the best of the CTI sound without tricking up the players too much! Art Farmer and Jim Hall play in a quintet with vibes by Mike Mainieri – in a style that eschews the electric funk of other CTI records, but has a similar sense of space, sound, and rhythm overall – proof that the label's groundbreaking approach didn't always have to be electrified! Tracks are quite long, and the two leaders effortlessly craft notes that magically hang in space with an airily soulful feel. Titles include wonderfully reworked versions of "Whisper Not", "A Child Is Born", and "Pavane For A Dead Princess". LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool collection of bluesy work from Red Garland – material pulled from the pianist's famous late 50s years on Prestige Records, including a number of cuts that weren't issued at the time of release! Some of the tracks here feature Garland working with a trio, while others have a horn player joining in – no surprise, given that Red's trio was one of the best backing groups ever used by Prestige. Other players include tenorists John Coltrane, Coleman Hawkins, and Arnett Cobb – who each play on one track – and rhythm players include either Paul Chambers or Sam Jones on bass, and Art Taylor of Charlie Persip on drums. Titles include "Red Beans", "Your Red Wagon", "Skinny's Blues", "PC Blues", "Prelude Blues", "Ralph J Gleason Blues", "Birk's Works", and "Ahmad's Blues". CD

✨✧ Dusko GoykovichIt's About Blues Time ... CD
Ensayo/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the legendary albums cut by hip European trumpeter Dusko Goykovich! The album was recorded in 1971 in Barcelona, and it's a very soulful quintet session that features fantastic performances from two of our favorite European players – trumpet player Dusko Goykovich and tenor player Ferdinand Povel, along with Spanish pianist Tete Montouliu, and his regular rhythm backing of Joe Nay and Robert Langereis. Goykovich and Povel groove hard in the frontline, bringing a hard edge to the session that you don't always hear on some of Montouliu's sessions from the time. The set grooves like a classic Blue Note, or some of the best straight ahead jazz on MPS – with lines that have their roots in soul jazz, but also show a real preference for modal grooving and lyrical soloing. Goykovich's tone is wonderful, and is a real mix of jazz and non-jazz European influences. Tracks include "Bosnia Calling", "Nameless Tune", and "The End Of Love". CD
