✨✧ Lee MorganRoulette Sides (10 inch LP) ... LP
Roulette/Warner, 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost treasure from Lee Morgan – three superb tracks that were initially issued as one side of a split record done with John Coltrane – at a time when neither of them were really signed to the Roulette Records label! That obscurity led both sets of material to quickly disappear from the record racks – and although the Coltrane material has since been rediscovered, and hailed as a key part of his catalog – this is the first time these Lee Morgan tracks have seen proper release since the 60s! The material is wonderful – really almost a Jazz Messengers session, but with some of the more exotic currents Morgan could bring to his recordings – and the lineup features Lee on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano – a trio that sounds as great on record as you'd expect. Art Taylor handles drums – instead of Blakey – and the bassist is Jimmy Rowser – and despite the apparent casualness of the recordings, the quality is wonderful – very much in the best spirit of Morgan's Blue Note classics. Titles include the Morgan composition "A Bid For Sid", plus Bobby Timmons' "Minor Strain" and Wayne Shorter's "Suspended Sentence". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don CooperBless The Children ... CD
Roulette/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A folk funk classic from Don Cooper – a folksy player at heart, but one who always manages to bring a gentle groove to his music! The set's got a spare sound that's totally great – vocals and guitar from Don, plus second guitar from Elliot Randall – and support from other light instrumentation on flute and violin, used in ways to bring a lyrical sweetness to the tunes that we really love – not exactly in Nick Drake territory, but a similar sort of sweetening! Rhythms are often more heavy on the acoustic basslines than the drums, which gives them a bottom-up sort of groove – warm and mellow, but with wonderfully funky moments. Titles include "Bless The Children", "Mad George", "Tell Me About Her", "Willy Jean", "Sad-Eyed Queen Of The Mountain", "Brotherlove", "A New Gun", "Only A Dream", and "Tin Cans & Alleyways". CD

Don CrawfordRoots & Branches ... CD
Roulette/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
Earthy work from Don Crawford – a very unique artist who works in a mix of soul and folk modes – a bit like Terry Callier at points, but with some more unusual touches as well! This album's got a pretty full set of arrangements, which makes for more of a Callier-like quality than some of Don's other records – but even so, the music's more like the straighter 60s folk of Callier than some of the soaring soul sounds of his Cadet years in the early 70s. Crawford's got a deeply soulful voice that rings out beautifully in this setting – and makes the whole sound of the album come through beautifully. Titles include "Fire Island Saturday", "Small Brown Baby", "Silent Scream", "Benediction", and "I Too Wanted Peace". CD

✨✧ Johnny DankworthCollaboration ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
A slightly more serious affair from Brit jazzman Johnny Dankworth – and a set that points towards some of the soundtrack albums he'd cut in the 60s! There's a modern jazz-meets-classical feel here – as Dankworth's larger group of players is augmented by some fuller strings from the London Philharmonic – blended together surprisingly well, so that Johnny's hip modernists fall right into play with the orchestrations! Group members include Peter King on alto sax, Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Tony Russell on trombone, Kenny Clare on drums, and Dudley Moore on piano – and titles include the extended compositions "Ebony Concerto" – which features guest work from Ronnie Ross on baritone and Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet – plus "Rendezvous" and "Improvisations For Jazz Band & Symphony Orchestra". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DankworthJazz From Abroad ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Incredible early work from British leader Johnny Dankworth – jazz work that's as fluid and grooving as his best 60s soundtrack sessions, and cut with an early sense of power that's really great! Dankworth's tight on the head arrangements, really leaping into the rhythms of the tune with the same love of groove as contemporary Johnny Keating – but he also makes some strong solo space on the best tracks on the album, really letting the sax players in the group stretch out searingly. Players aren't named in the credits, sadly, but we're guessing they're the top-level players who made appearances on Dankworth's key British sides of the time. Titles include "A String Of Camels", "Cannonball", "Chano", "Avengers Theme", "Sack O Woe", "Esso Blues", and "Curtain Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Harry EdisonPatented By Edison ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1960. Used ... $18.99
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Harry Edison – small group material cut for Roulette Records, with a sound that's maybe a bit deeper than some of his earlier albums in the 50s! The approach is relatively simple and understated – in that best Roost/Roulette manner that was used with Sonny Stitt – and Edison soars out with some wonderfully-shaped lines on trumpet, which are given even further inflection by the combo presence of Jimmy Forest on tenor and Tommy Flanagan on piano! The tracks are short, but pack a lot of punch – and the main focus is on Edison's raspy tone and well-placed notes – nothing fancy, but great throughout! Most tunes are in a gently swinging sort of mode, and titles include "Tea For Two", "Blue Skies", "Confessin", "Candied Sweets", "Twenty Forty", and "Witchcraft". CD

Stan GetzStan Getz At Storyville Volumes 1 & 2 ... CD
Roulette/EMI (UK), 1951. Used ... $5.99
A great CD that combines volumes 1 and 2 of Stan's early live recordings at Storyville – excellent small group sessions done with a group that includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Al Haig on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Tiny Kahn on drums. The mix of guitar and tenor is great together – a sound that became one of Stan's calling cards in the early 50s – and even the live setting can't stifle the strength of his unique tone. The CD features a total of 13 cuts in all – and titles include "Budo", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Yesterdays", "Thou Swell", "Mosquito Knees", and "Parker 51". CD

Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful work from Tyree Glenn – a trombonist like no other, and a player who really could get a great "voice" on the instrument! The set's a nicely earthy batch of tracks – small combo numbers, with help from Hank Jones on piano, Mary Osborne on guitar, Tommy Potter on bass, and Jo Jones on drums – all players who lay back in the groove nicely, and never dominate at all. Glenn also plays vibes on a bit of the record, which sound great too – and titles include "Teach Me Tonight", "Wonder Why", "Dear Old Southland", "Them There Eyes", "Sweet & Lovely", "Marcheta", and "All Of Me".

Sonny Lester & His OrchestraMusic To Keep Your Husband Happy (How To Strip For Your Husband/How To Belly Dance For Your Husband) (2LP box set) ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Box Set ... $9.99
2 albums that were part of one of the strangest musical fads of the 60s – stripping! We've never been actually quite sure what started the fad, but there were a number of relatively successful stripping albums during the early part of the decade – the most famous of which was David Rose's The Stripper, two more of which were these sides by Sonny Lester (later known more famously as the head of Solid State and Groove Merchant, and producer of more than a few funky jazz gems!) The style's exactly what you'd expect – campy and goofy, really very much in the stereotyped mode of the stripper sound. 22 tracks in all, with titles that include "The Unveiling", "Boom Boom", "Calcutta Rag", "Cad Of Bagdad", "Queens Night Out", "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody", "Theme For Gypsy", and "For Strippers Only".

✨✧ MachitoKenya (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Roulette/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 44.99
A real corker from Machito – a set that's got a lot more bite and earthy fire than some of his other albums of the 50s – as you might be able to guess from the cover and the title! The record definitely lives up to the Afro-Cuban promise on the front – thanks to very hip arrangements from Mario Bauza and AK Salim – who balance core rhythmic elements with some great modern jazz solo contributions – from key players who include Johnny Griffin on tenor, Cannonball Adderley on alto, Joe Newman on trumpet, and Eddie Bert on trombone – all coming together under Machito's leadership with a sound that's much bolder than most of his work in a straighter Latin mode! The album's a key meeting of styles – as powerful today as it was when first recorded – and tracks include the great "Congo Mulence", a very tight groover – plus "Turuato", "Frenzy", "Cannonology", "Minor Rama", and "Wild Jungle".

✨✧ Phineas NewbornPiano Portraits ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1958. Used ... $16.99
Evocative piano portraits from Phineas Newborn – played in an illustrative style that's mighty nice! Newborn's got a touch on the keys that's like few other players we can think of – rich and full, yet without being too flowery or sentimental – a really nice balance that stands out best at this key point in his career. Trio backing is important to the sound, too – thanks to sensitive drum work from Roy Haynes, and very subtle bass from John Simmons. Titles include "Star Eyes", "Golden Earrings", "For Left Hand Only", "Chelsea Bridge", and "Caravan". CD

✨✧ Herb PomeroyLife Is A Many Splendored Gig ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1957. Used ... $18.99
Incredibly hip big band work from trumpeter Herb Pomeroy – proof that the Boston influence in the 50s was a very good force in modern jazz! The group here is large, but the sound is often quite lean – done with an open focus on the strongest soloists in the group – players who include Joe Gordon on trumpet, Jaki Byard and Boots Mussulli on saxes, and Ray Santisi on piano. The style is swinging and modern, but never too academic or Kenton-styled – and the driving solos on the record are quite heartfelt, and never hokey. Great stuff all around, with titles that include "Blue Grass", "Wolafunt's Lament", "Theme For Terry", "Less Talk", "Big Man", "Feather Merchant", "Our Delight", and "Aluminum Baby". CD

✨✧ Kitty WhiteSweet Talk ... LP
Roulette, 1958. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the fullest-staffed albums ever recorded by Kitty White – but a set that still gives her plenty private, personal space! The album features different groupings of players who include Benny Carter on alto, Ted Nash on tenor and flute, Harry Edison on trumpet, Larry Bunker on vibes, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and Laurindo Almeida on guitar – plus some Latin percussion from Carlos Vidal on the bottom. Yet despite the presence of all of these players, many numbers have an up-close quality that makes us feel like we're hearing Kitty's moody vocals in the backroom of some private club in LA. Her phrasing is great throughout – articulate, but never too much so – and titles include "Lazy Afternoon", "It Was So Beautiful", "Alone Together", "Talk Me Some Sweet Talk", "Please Be Patient", and "Dat's Love".

One of the more obscure albums by Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – a session of Basie tunes, performed with backing by the Count, plus additional lead vocals by Joe Williams, the voice most closely associated with the Basie group at the time! The style is similar to the trio's Sing A Song Of Basie album for ABC, but handled here with a bit more of an edge, and a rougher, more freewheeling groove that's a better fit for the great Basie sound of the late 50s – a great adaptation of the groove by Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, and Annie Ross! The record's a nice sometimes-overlooked chapter in the excellent Count Basie run on Roulette – and titles include "Every Tub", "Rusty Dusty Blues", "The King", "Shorty George", and "Let Me See".

Roulette/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of work we've ever seen by The Cadillacs – a set that definitely rocks, but which also presents the group in all their mad and many modes! In some ways, The Cadillacs were sort of an east coast counterpart to The Coasters – able to sing with as much dynamic energy, and with ears for all sorts of unusual tunes that were filled with wit – almost an audio version of a cartoon, given some of the storylines and really animated vocals! The group have always been one of our favorites from back in the day – and this cool collection really gets at all the things that made them so great – with a whopping 34 tracks in all, and the usual great Bear Family notes and production values. Titles include "Sugar Sugar", "Zoom (version 2)", "No Chance", "Down The Road", "Great Googly Moo", "Cool It Fool", "Jay Walker", "Romeo", "Bad Dan McGoon, "Naggity Nag, "Dumbell", "Gloria", "Still You Left Me Baby", "Shock A Doo", "I Want To Know About Love", "Copy Cat", and "A Looka Here".

Incredible work from Maynard Ferguson – the kind of record that will blow you away, and make you forget all the cliches you've ever had about him! The album's a completely hip batch of big band work – grooving in a fresh, modern style that takes bits of Kenton and Evans, but also infuses the work with a deeper sense of soul – heard to great effect on the really standout solo work on the set! Maynard's got a heck of a great group for the record – one that includes Jacki Byard on piano, Slide Hampton on trombone, Rufus Jones on drums, and a young Joe Farrell on saxes – sounding incredible with some really searing work! The set some incredible Hampton originals – including the amazing exotic tracks "Ole" and "The Pharoah", both of which are worth the price of the record alone! Other tunes include "New Blue", "Ultimate Rejection", and "Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Handy IIIIn The Vernacular ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early genius from the great saxophonist John Handy – working here at a time when he was fresh from some key experience with Charles Mingus, and ready to try out some of his own great ideas as a leader on his own! The album's a stunner right from the start – a record of subtle power and very deep soul – one that's also different than some of the directions Handy would take in years to come – both in some of his more freewheeling hippy modes, or his slicker jazz funk of the 70s. Instead, this set's a mix of modern ideas and sharper swing – a bit like Jackie McLean during some of his pivotal early 60s years, but with raspier soul too – delivered by a perfect group that also features great work on trumpet from Richard Williams, plus piano from Roland Hanna, bass from George Tucker, and drums from the great Roy Haynes. Titles include "Blues In The Vernacular", "Suggested Line", "First Time", "I'll Close My Eyes Again", "Quote Unquote", and "Dance To The Lady". CD

A stunner of an early album from reedman John Handy – completely different from both his experimental music of the mid 60s, and from his funkier sides of the 70s! Instead, John comes across here with a simple, unadorned brilliance – a bold statement of modernism mixed with soul, and one that places him in the same Mingus-related company as Booker Ervin or Johnny Coles – both players with the same immediate sense of self that we find in Handy's music at this point! Every track is a delight – really well-written numbers that show a fresh vision for jazz composition, swung strongly by a group that features Walter Bishop Jr on piano, alongside Handy's brilliant alto. Titles include "No Coast", "Boo's Ups & Downs", "To Randy", "Hi Number", and "Tales Of Paradise". CD

A legendary Latin funk album – spearheaded by Eddie Palmieri! The record is a landmark crossover album from the early 70s – cut at the end of the Latin soul era, but featuring that genre's wonderful mix of Puerto Rican soul, Spanish Harlem Latin, and New York funk – which are then given a new sort of push in this era of strong Latin pride and new opportunities for the youthful scene in New York! The grooves are all nice and long – with plenty of hard jamming, Latin rhythms, funky solos, and even soulful lyrics in English – sung with a very righteous, positive message that's kept the album at the top of the stacks for years. Eddie Palmeri plays piano and directs the group – and titles include "Seeds Of Life", "Harlem River Drive", and "Idle Hands". CD

In addition to Mobley's tenor and Morgan's trumpet, the combo also features Curtis Fuller on trombone, Billy Root on additional tenor, Ray Bryant on piano, Tommy Bryant on bass, and Specs Wright on drums.

We're not sure we've ever heard trumpeter Joe Newman and tenorist Zoot Sims work together on a record – and certainly never as striking a setting as this – a record that really gives both musicians a chance to open up and blow! Despite the title, the players are less "locking horns" here than really working together in the lead – hitting the kind of tight head arrangements that you might hear on some of Sims material with RCA, but getting a grittier groove from both the Roulette Records style of recording, and the efforts of a cool rhythm trio that features Adrian (Johnny?) Acea on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Osie Johnson drums. Newman's horn has an especially gutbuckety quality, and Sims follows suit with some deeply soulful work on his solos – on titles that include "Corky", "Mambo For Joe", "Midnite Fantasy", "Tater Pie", "Oh Joe", and "Oh Shaye".

More than a decade's worth of genius from arranger Johnny Richards – the long-overdue release of his seminal albums for Capitol, Roulette, and Legende Records from the 50s and 60s! Richards first came to fame working for Stan Kenton in the early 50s – and although is work is featured on some of Kenton's best-remembered albums, Richards also had a lot more tricks up his sleeve than he ever used with Stan – a good many of which are featured in this package! The albums run through modes that include modern big band arrangements, sparer tone poems in sound, hard-driving Latin tracks, and some especially nice high-concept pieces that still always manage to swing with the trademark Johnny Richards groove that was a real standout in the high modern years of the Kenton group. Package features a whopping 6 albums on 3 CDs – Annotations Of The Muses, Wide Range, Experiments In Sound, Rites Of Diablo, My Fair Lady My Way, and Aqui Se Habla Espanol – a total of 50 tracks in all, presented with the original liner notes and full session details!

Well, this one's not really the kind of album that will make you throw away your Marlboros – but it is a great set of jazz tracks by Sal Salvador, despite a goofy cover and title! The album was issued by Roulette during the time of its "how to strip" and "how to bellydance" classics – but it's honestly just a straight batch of jazz tunes played by Sal on guitar, with small combo backing that includes Ray Starling on piano, John Beal on bass, and Lennie McBrowne on drums. Sal's guitar is right out front, sounding as strong as on other albums of the period – and the only relation to the title of the set is in the choice of tunes, all which are kind of jokes on quitting smoking: "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "I'll Never Be Free", "You Go To My Head", "You Irritate Me So", and the original tune "Stop Smoking Or Else Blues".

A drum-heavy spectacular – featuring four of the top hardbop drummers of the late 50s, all recorded live at Birdland, soloing back and forth in larger groups that really make the whole thing cook! Although the cover and title might make you think the record's a novelty, it's way more than that – and really fits nicely alongside some of Art Blakey's more experimental, percussion-heavy dates for Blue Note – although with a bit more of a bop feel overall! Blakey's on all the cuts – and side one features him playing with drummer Philly Joe Jones on the tunes "Wee Dot" and "Fours" – with lots of drum solo space, plus Sonny Red on alto and Charles Greenlee on trombone! Side two features Blakey, Charlie Persip, and Elvin Jones – on the cooker "El Sino", which has nice alto work by Sonny Red, plus more solo work along the "Fours" theme! This 2LP set also features Volume 2 – an amazing second chapter of the legendary Gretsch Drum Night At Birdland – and one that might even have more percussive power than the first! As before, the lineup features four key talents on the drum kit for the time – Art Blakey, Charlie Persip, Elvin Jones, and Philly Joe Jones – all hardboppers who are definitely a cut above the usual, filled with fire and amazing energy – as they develop new voices on their instrument, and rise above a standard role of timekeeping! All players participate strongly – stepping out on side one on with Elvin, Philly Joe, and Charlie on differing solos within a version of "Tune Up" – and on side two as Blakey, Elvin, and Persip take off on "Night In Tunisia" – with help from Tommy Flanagan on piano, Sonny Red on alto, Charles Greenlee on trombone, and Ron Carter on bass. The drums are mostly in the lead, but the other players offer up nice contributions too – and the record's a stormer throughout! LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice 80s French pressing.)

✨✧ Willie BoboBobo's Beat ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
An obscure album by Willie Bobo – and a great one too! The session predates Willie's more famous work on Verve, and it catches the percussionist as he's coming off of some very successful years in the Cal Tjader band – a place where he really picked up a flair for jazzy and lyrical grooves. There's a fair bit of bossa nova influence on the set, but it's handled in a really unique way – as Willie's group blends together organ and piano, plus some sax and flute from a young Joe Farrell – making for a sound that's partly in the New York Latin mode, and partly in the more open and breezy styles of Willie's west coast roots. A great little album, with a really wonderful feel – and titles include "O Barquinho", "Let Your Hair Down Blues", "Capers", "Bossa Nova In Blue", and "Naked City Theme". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Trinidad" and "Timbale Groove". CD

✨✧ Harlem River DriveHarlem River Drive ... LP
Roulette/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary Latin funk album – spearheaded by Eddie Palmieri! The record is a landmark crossover album from the early 70s – cut at the end of the Latin soul era, but featuring that genre's wonderful mix of Puerto Rican soul, Spanish Harlem Latin, and New York funk – which are then given a new sort of push in this era of strong Latin pride and new opportunities for the youthful scene in New York! The grooves are all nice and long – with plenty of hard jamming, Latin rhythms, funky solos, and even soulful lyrics in English – sung with a very righteous, positive message that's kept the album at the top of the stacks for years. Eddie Palmeri plays piano and directs the group – and titles include "Seeds Of Life", "Harlem River Drive", and "Idle Hands". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big Sam MarowitzSounds In The Night ... LP
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
An excellent album of late night sax and organ numbers – featuring the enigmatic alto player Big Sam Marowitz, paired with arrangements that make some nice use of the thinner end of the Hammond organ spectrum! The instrumentation also has a nice dose of electric guitar and bongos – all moving very very slow, with a moody and dark sort of feel that goes way beyond the simple cliches of other albums of this nature. Sam's tone on the horn is really great too – leading us to wonder if he wasn't another jazz player working under a "nom de date" – and titles include "Sounds In The Night", "Summertime", "Moon Nocturne", and "Warm Valley".

Stitt hits the Varitone for Roulette, and while his work isn't as funky as that of Eddie Harris or Lou Donaldson, the instrument lets him get in a nice raw tone, with a good honest edge that comes through despite backing by a largeish group. Other players include Ernie Hayes on organ, Walter Perkins on drums, and JJ Johnson on trombone – and the set includes short tracks like "Round Midnight", "Beastly Blues", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", and "Morgan's Song".

✨✧ Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate ... CD
FM/Roulette, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have a slightly different spirit. Backing is by a small group that includes Mundell Lowe on guitar, Ronnie Ball on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Shaunessy on drums – and the liveness of the recording really comes through, in a way that gets more at the boozy Chris of late nite clubs than you'd hear on most of her studio albums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Old Devil Moon", "Goodbye", "Only The Lonely", "Black Coffee", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Only The Lonely". CD

✨✧ Sam & DaveSam & Dave ... LP
Roulette, 1960s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Some very tasty work from one of the greatest soul duos ever – pre-Stax recordings from the duo of Sam Moore and Dave Prater, pulled together as a full Roulette album to cash in on their later 60s hits for the Memphis soul powerhouse! Despite that earlier status, though, the tracks are all pretty darn great – recorded with a raw soul sound that's hard and deep all the way through, with lots of emphasis on the vocals – which are brilliant, and even a bit less restrained than their work at Stax – with a tuff soul edge that shows that the pair were great, even before they hooked up with Isaac Hayes and David Porter! Tracks include "It Feels So Nice", "It Was So Nice While It Lasted", "Keep A Walkin", "If She'll Still Have Me", "You Ain't No Big Thing Baby", "No More Pain", and "I Found Out".

✨✧ Sarah VaughanSweet N Sassy ... LP
Roulette, 1963. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked vocal gem from Sarah Vaughan – recorded in the early 60s with some sweet arrangements by a young Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was just getting his start on the US scene at the time – and for the set, he's working in a mode that has some of the fuller, richer orchestrations used on other Vaughan albums of the period – but which also breaks out into some leaner and jazzier moments that remind us of his later work. Sarah herself is great – singing with that mature and almost world-weary tone that made so many of her Roulette sides so memorable. Titles include "More Than You Know", "Thanks For The Ride", "Just Married Today", "I Wish I Were In Love Again", "This Can't Be Love", and "Slowly". LP, Vinyl record album

Cleftones, Crows, Harptones, & ValentinesTeenage Party ... LP
Gee, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A wonderful collection of late 50s vocal group material – all of it originally recorded for the excellent Gee label, one of the best NY indies of the time! The tracks here are as tight as anything in the pop realm at the time, but still really retain all the rougher, more personal vibe of the streetcorner years – a quality that's furthered by the relatively sparse instrumentation on most numbers – usually just a small rhythm combo to back up the soaring vocals! There's a few big hits here, mixed with more obscure numbers – and despite the teen cover, the album's got a rock-solid, all-soul vibe throughout. Titles include "Come Back My Love" by The Wrens, "Little Girl Of Mine" and "Can't We Be Sweethearts" by The Cleftones, "Nature's Creation" by The Valentines, "Three Wishes" and "My Memories Of You" by The Harptones, and "Gee" and "I Love You So" by The Crows.

Pianist Hal Galper may be on an inner journey here – but he works with plenty of outward flow – really stepping out in an acoustic trio setting with the same sort of vibe that he brings to his work on Fender Rhodes! The lineup here is a bit unusual – as Dave Holland makes a surprise appearance on bass, alongside Bill Goodwin on drums – both very dynamic players who are a great match for Hal's work in the lead – especially when he's working these long-flowing chord progressions that are really beautiful – filled with soul and spirit, and very powerful throughout! Titles include "Inner Journey", "Invitation to Openness", "Joy Ride", "Taking The Coltrane", and "Wandering Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Mosaic, 1965/1966/1967/1968. Used 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
Brilliant Columbia Records work from saxophonist John Handy – a player who first rose to fame with Charles Mingus, then went onto record some early albums for Roulette – but really came into his own during these Columbia years! The Handy heard here is a jazzman all his own – a musician who's clearly trying for new sounds, and new styles of expression in the heady years of the 60s – moving his alto sax past any previous modes heard on the instrument, and setting himself up with some very unusual rhythms and instrumentation. There's a bit of a modal grooves on some tracks, and other numbers take on a unique pulse of their own – almost a precursor of cosmic modes to come in jazz, forged here first by Handy. Most of the sessions here feature work from violinist Michael White, a key force in Handy's music – plus guitar from Jerry Hahn or Sonny Greenwich, bass from Don Thompson, and drums from Terry Clarke – and the great Mike Nock also plays piano on one session too. 3CD set features 5 unreleased tracks – plus work from Live At The Monterey Jazz Festival, The 2nd John Handy Album, Projections, and The Spirituals To Swing 30th Anniversary session. Titles include "Dancy Dancy", "If Only We Knew", "Theme X", "New Theme", "Bad Stroke Of Luck", "Right On The Line", "Debonair", "A Song Of Uranus", "Sanpaku", "Eros", "Dance To The Lady", "All The Way To West Virginia By God", and "Blues For A Highstrung Guitar".

Bobby LewisMumblin, Tossin, & Turnin ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A really wonderful overview of the early career of Bobby Lewis – a pre-soul singer who recorded for a variety of different labels, and always managed to pack a hell of a punch! Bobby can have a very dynamic vocal approach when he wants – a sometimes-explosive approach that paves the way from jump blues through R&B into soul – and the tracks here follow a similar trajectory, and start with early work for Chess, Mercury, Spotlight, and Roulette – before moving into the early 60s material for Beltone Records that's perhaps some of Lewis' best-known material. Throughout the 27 track set, there's a real love for an upbeat, playful tune – the kind of work that would be more strongly associated with the New Orleans scene in the 60s, even though Bobby's roots are in the midwest. Titles include two versions of his early hit "Mumbles Blues" – plus "Tossin & Turnin", "Oh Mr Somebody", "Solid As A Rock", "Turn Over A New Leaf", "Cry No More", "One Track Mind", "Yay Yay I Feel So Gay", "A Man's Gotta Be A Man", "Yes Oh Yes It Did", "Boom A Chick Chick", and "I'm Tossin & Turnin Again".

Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Searing instrumentals from the glory days of the electric guitar – that initial moment when the fuzz was turned up, the echo expanded, and the instrument finally got a chance to step out in the lead in the kind of totally wonderful tracks like these! The Ventures are pictured on the cover, but most of the music is from an underground much deeper than that group – tracks delivered with a fair bit of darkness, often pulled from rare singles, and included here with 14 previously-unissued tracks! Many of these numbers are maybe more in a legacy of Link Wray than some of the cleaner surf rock groups of the time – and as always with Ace, the presentation, notes, and sound are superb. Titles include "Wolf Pack" by The Mus Twangs, "Mirage" by The Night Caps, "Diamond Back" by Cecil Moore & The Notes, "Red Wing" by The Carnations, "Zombie Surfer" by The Ramrods, "Swing The Mess Around" by Mike Gordon & The Agates, "Harlem Nocturne" by The Music City Swingers, "Peace Pipe" by The Marksmen, "Russian Roulette" by The Zanies, "Blue Money" by The Ventures, and "Guitare Jet" by Les Jaguars.

✨✧ Jimmie Logsdon/Jimmie LloydI Got A Rocket In My Pocket – The Complete 50s Recordings ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The complete works of Jimmie Logsdon – one of those 50s country singers who also recorded rockabilly material under a different name – working on some of these tracks as Jimmie Lloyd, and following a pattern that was similar to two-name recordings at the time by giants like George Jones or Webb Pierce! The package brings together singles recorded four Roulette and Decca – and actually maybe show Jimmie as an even better country singer than a rocker – given that most of the cuts here are in the former mode, and have a way of mixing together some of the best postwar hillbilly styles. Yet both together are pretty darn fantastic, and make for an overstuffed 29 track CD, complete with very detailed notes and history in the best Bear Family tradition – with titles that include "I Got A Rocket In My Pocket", "I'm Goin Back To Tennessee, "As Long As We're Together", "You're Gone Baby", "One Way Ticket To Nowhere", "That's When I'll Love You The Best", "Midnight Boogie", "My Sweet French Baby", and "Road Of Regret" – plus Hank Williams tribute tracks "The Death Of Hank Williams" and "Hank Williams Sings The Blues No More".

Prestige, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Pow is right – as Stitt grooves with a tight combo that features Benny Green on trombone, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Herman Wright on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums. The album's one of a few sides produced in the mid 60s by Richard Carpenter, a jazz manager/impresario who cut Chet Baker on some sides with the same group, licensed them to Prestige briefly, then pulled the material. Carpenter had also licensed this Stitt session to Roulette, but it's much more fitting of Prestige – as the tracks are longer and more open-ended, with a tighter hardbop approach than some of Stitt's Roulette/Roost work. Titles include "Love On The Rocks", "Nuff Guff", "Scramble", "Up & Over", and "Pride & Passion". LP, Vinyl record album

EMI/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Strong work in the lead by The Roulettes – a group who initially replaced the John Barry Seven as the backing group behind UK rocker Adam Faith – but who here really seem to find a great sound of their own! The combo had changed a bit by the time of this debut – and benefits from great guitar by a young Russ Ballard – in a mix of beat and sweet styles that are often recorded with the same sort of echoey charm of early Beatles material, but which also get occasional jazz and blues moments that tie them more strongly to the growing wave of mod music to come. CD adds in lots of bonus tracks to the original album – 22 titles in all, with tracks that include "Bad Time", "Settle Down", "I'll Remember Tonight", "You Don't Love Me", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Yesterday Today & Tomorrow", "The Long Cigarette", "Junk", "Tell Tale Tit", and "Me Body".

British rock, but with plenty of soul – as these artists were some of the first in the world to be influenced by the sound of early Motown Records – then set about trying to create their own strand of Detroit soul! The influence of Motown on the sound of so many other scenes has been well documented over the years – but this cool little set gets right to the heart of the matter – by representing the kind of British singers and groups who were some of the first to revel in the spirit of Berry Gordy and his creations – then find a way to move things forward with new recordings of their own!
