✨✧ Shirley ScottFor Members Only ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Groovin' set of tracks that has the lady organist in two settings – one with her trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums, the other with a hard swingin' big band led by Oliver Nelson. She's great with Nelson's band, and swings in the same hard way that Jimmy Smith does in the same setting. Tracks include "Blue Piano", "Toys In The Attic", and the groovin' "Freedom Dance".

Shirley ScottHip Twist ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $11.99
Hip Twist indeed – as Shirley's joined here by husband Stanley Turrentine, whose tenor work on any Scott album always takes it to the next level! Stan's tone is still nice and raw here – blowing out some hard and soulful lines that are the perfect complement to Shirley's more composed work on the Hammond. The rest of the group includes George Tucker on bass and Otis Finch on drums – and tracks include "Hip Twist", "Violent Blues", "That's All", "All Tore Down", and "Rippin & Runnin". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley ScottSatin Doll ... LP
Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
A nice little set from Shirley, made up of organ trio readings of Ellington standards. Maybe not the kind of thing you went nuts for on your last digging excursion, but a more than solid set of Sunday morning numbers that Scott and company, George Tucker and Mack Simpkins in this case, handle with ease and grace, and manage to pour a little blusy Hammond grease over, too! Includes "Satin Doll", "C Jam Blues", "Perdido", "Mood Indigo", and "It Don't Mean A Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott with Stanely TurrentineSoul Is Willing ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Good+ ... $6.99
One of the strongest albums that Shirley Scott ever cut with Stanley Turrentine – organ and tenor working together perfectly in a mellow soulful groove, sliding easily from track to track in a mode that still satisfies mightily over the years! The group is tight, soulful quartet, featuring Major Holley and Grasella Oliphant in the rhythm section, and titles include "Stolen Sweets", "The Soul Is Willing", "I Feel Alright", "Yes Indeed", "Remember" and "Secret Love".

✨✧ Shirley ScottHip Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early Shirley Scott at her best – working with husband Stanley Turrentine (listed in the notes as "Stan Turner") to craft a great set of soul jazz tracks! The mood is laidback and easygoing, and honestly, it's Turrentine's deeply soulful solos that really make the set crackle – bringing an edge to the record that Shirley didn't always have, even on her earlier recordings with Eddie Lockjaw Davis. Stan's tone is superb – with a subtle rasp that really breaks open the sound – and his playing is extremely well-handled – always keeping us on the edge of our seat, blowing as he goes with incredible confidence and creativity! The rest of the group features Herb Lewis on bass and Roy Brooks on drums – and titles include "Trane's Blues", "Hip Soul", "411 West", "By Myself", and "Stanley's Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow and black label pressing – with deep groove and RVG stamp! Cover has a small trace of tape on back, but looks great on the front.)

✨✧ Shirley Scott & Stanley TurrentineBlue Flames ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the real classics from the team of Stanley Turrentine and Shirley Scott – a session that kicks up Shirley's groove on Prestige a fair bit, by adding in some incredible tenor from then-husband Stan! Turrentine's tone at the time is wonderful – biting, well-placed, and always with a rhythmic pulse that seems to inspire stronger lines and bolder organ work than Scott sometimes brought to the table on other Prestige trio sessions. Backing is by Bob Cranshaw on bass and Otis Finch on drums – but the real stars of the show are Stanley and Shirley, who could have easily done the whole thing on their own! Titles include "The Funky Fox", "Hip Knees An' Legs", "Five Spot After Dark", and "Grand Street". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shirley ScottGreat Scott!! (Prestige) ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A mellow trio session – Shirley on organ, George Duvivier on bass, and Art Edgehill on drums – done in the moody, loungey style of most of Shirley's work as a leader for Prestige. There's nothing here that's going to hit you over the head, but the album does have a really solid feel overall – the kind of record you'd like to kick back to, especially if you were chilling out in some southside club in the wee hours. Titles include "The Scott", "Four", "Goodbye", "All Of You", "Brazil", and "Trees". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing, with deep groove & RVG stamp. Cover has some wear, with a split top seam and mostly split bottom.)

Prestige/OJC, 1959. Used ... $8.99
Eddie Lockjaw Davis swings way out here – working in that cool cooking mode from the 50s, with organist Shirley Scott a very important partner on the date! The group's got a larger sound than usual – thanks to the addition of trombonist Steve Pullman – a player we don't know much, but who shifts the groove nicely away from some of Davis' more staid cookbook albums. Rhythm is by George Duvivier on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and titles include "Bahia", "Foxy", "Bingo Domingo", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood". CD

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw Davis with Count Basie & Joe NewmanCount Basie Presents The Eddie Lockjaw Davis Trio Plus Joe Newman ... LP
Roulette, 1957. Very Good ... $4.99
Great small combo work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – very much in the mode of his early Cookbook albums for Prestige, but with the added bonus of Count Basie on piano and Joe Newman on trumpet! Davis' raw tenor sound gets plenty of time in the spotlight, but Newman gets in a few strong solos too – and although Shirley Scott is backing up the group with the strongest sound on Hammond, Basie also tickles the ivories a bit in the background – and ensures that there's a bit of a Basie swing to the whole record! Titles include "Farouk", "Lock Up", "Telegraph", "Marie", "Swingin Till The Girls Come Home", "Street Of Dreams", and "A Misty One". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Stanley Turrentine's few organ-based sessions for Blue Note – recorded in the company of his wife Shirley Scott, a real cooker on the Hammond who holds it down masterfully here – and great band that's filled out by Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Otis Finch on drums. The album's sound has the triple strengths of strong interplay between Stanley's tenor sax and Shirley's organ grooves, rhythms as tightly honed or loosed-limbed as duty calls, and Burrell's guitars rolling gracefully from unfussy backing to refined solos. Tracks include "Trouble No 2", "Goin Home", "Ladyfingers", "Something Happens To Me" and "The Hustler". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $29.99
Sweet and soulful early work from Stanley Turrentine – one of the few albums he recorded in the early 60s with wife Shirley Scott – then one of the greatest female organ players in the business! The album's got a easy going soul jazz feel that's a lot like the work the pair cut for Prestige – with great organ rhythms from Scott, and some additional conga from Ray Barretto – cooking up the rhythm section a bit more than usual! Titles include "Never Let Me Go", "Sara's Dance", "Trouble", and "Major's Minor". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBlack Gold – Samples, Breaks, & Rare Groove From The Chess Records Archives ... CD
Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
Incredible sounds from the Chess Records catalog – not the blues that you might know the label for, but a huge range of funk, soul, and jazz tracks from the headiest years of the 60s and 70s – a time when the Chicago scene was really turning out some incredible musical hybrids! As you'd guess from the title, all the cuts here have had a new life in recent years – thanks to samples by hip hop artists or other producers – but the original grooves are even better than the tracks that used them, and come together here to make one of the most mindblowing collections of Chess material we've ever heard! The package is nicely heavy on sounds from the Cadet/Concept years of the label – with more than a few contributions from producers Charles Stepney and Richard Evans – and the package features 42 wonderful tracks – including "Fonky Thang Diamon Ring" by The Dells, "Windmills Of Your Mind" by Dorothy Ashby, "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" by Rotary Connection, "Jelly Jam" by Jack McDuff, "The Getaway" by Alvin Cash, "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler, "Cross Country" by Archie Whitewater, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Inside Out" by American Gypsy, "Go Go Power" by Sugar Pie DeSanto, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "Up Above The Rock" by Ray Bryant, "Bad Moon Rising" by Bo Diddley, "Shoo Be Doo Be Doo Be Do Da Day" by Eddie Fisher, "Humpin Bumpin & Thumpin" by Andre Williams, "Who Got The Number" by Pigmeat Markham, "Walk On By" by Jo Ann Garrett, "Chocolate Candy" by Soulful Strings, "Got To Get Your Own (7" version)" by Reuben Wilson, "Hanky's Panky (7" version)" by Shirley Scott, "Liberation Conversation" by Marlena Shaw, "Look Of Love" by Monk Higgins, and "Think About It" by Odell Brown & The Organizers.

VariousLas Vegas Grind Vol 7 ... LP
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $24.99
Jazzman Records takes over the legendary Las Vegas Grind series – and does a fantastic job of coming up with the kind of really raunchy tracks that always made the collections so great! When this series first came out, it really blew our mind – because although we knew plenty of older tracks from the glory days of the indie 7" single, we'd never heard work this raw or gritty – tunes that are often equal parts rock and R&B, often with a hard-vamping style that must have been perfect for a stripper to go into her grind! Not that this music is anything like older "strip" records, though – as we're sure that all the tracks here were cut by guys who were hoping to top the charts with the next big thing – but whose heavy sound and gritty groove forever damned their songs to the world of rare record collectors. Fortunately, Jazzman are on the case, and have done a fantastic job of picking just the right tracks to continue the Las Vegas Grind legacy – titles that include "I'd Rather Swish Than Fight" by B Bubbha, "Gay Poppa's Cha Cha" by Gay Poppa, "She Said" by Frank Scott, "Blo Jangs" by The Savoys, "El Pato" by Los Virreyes, "Fat Man" by Louie & The Fat Men, "The Beard" by The Abstracts, "Sneaky Pete" by UBs Group, "Gemini Rock" by The Original Spacemen, "Sneakin Away" by The Y-Dells, "Shirley" by Little Louie & The Finger Cymbals, and "Braggin" by Bob Moore & The Temps.

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisBacalao ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty rare one – and one of the best albums that Eddie Lockjaw Davis ever recorded! The album takes Eddie's usual trio with Shirley Scott on organ, and adds in some extra bongos and conga – by Luiz Perez and Ray Barretto, respectively – to create a Latinized version of soul jazz, with a very nice swing! The album grooves well on nearly every track – almost in the mode of Eddie's classic Afro-Jaws album – and the setting really brings out the best in his tenor work, cutting across lines in a way that almost hearkens back to his R&B days. Titles include "Dobbin The Redd Foxx", "Last Train From Overbrook", "Fast Spiral", "Dancero", and "That Old Black Magic". CD

Prestige, Early 60s. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The kind of record that really broke Eddie Lockjaw Davis out of the R&B world and into the soul jazz camp at the end of the 50s – a seminal early mix of tenor and organ, with the young Shirley Scott handling the Hammond! The group's also got George Duvivier on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and both Davis and Scott really make magic out of familiar tunes – at a level that would set the standard for a generation to come! Davis plays them with a nice deep soulful sound, reaching deeply into his tenor, wrenching out hard-edged notes that drip with a deep rich emotion – and titles include "I'll Never Be The Same", "Old Devil Moon", "Too Close For Comfort", "Tangerine", and "But Not For Me".

Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record that's virtually the blueprint for the sound of Hammond organ and tenor sax in soul jazz– the first of Eddie Lockjaw Davis' great run of cookbook albums for Prestige! The record features Lockjaw's gutsy tenor in a group alongside Jerome Richardson's lighter flute – both dancing wonderfully together over organ lines from a young Shirley Scott – playing here with a style that's a bit earthier and more bluesy than some of her later work. Rhythm is by George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and tracks include the classic 12 minute jammer "In The Kitchen", plus shorter tracks "Three Deuces", "The Chef", and "Have Horn, Will Blow". CD features bonus track "Avalon". CD

Prestige, 1958. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Volume 2 of Lockjaw's classic early Cookbook sessions – cut for Prestige in a key transitional moment, when Lock was trying to break past the R&B roots of earlier years, and emerge as a more sophisticated jazz soloist, capable of carrying an idea way past the short format of singles and jukebox sides. The sessions provide a perfect format for such an effort – as the tracks are long and open-ended, and match Eddie with a great quintet that includes Shirley Scott on organ and Jerome Richardon on flute. Includes the classic "The Rev", plus "Stardust", "Skillet", and "The Broilers". LP, Vinyl record album

The session features 4 tenor giants of slightly older vintage – Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Arnett Cobb, and Buddy Tate – all coming together in some loosely-structured arrangements that offer the same sympathetic blowing space that you might get from an all-star tenor date on Verve. Rhythm is by a trio with Shirley Scott on organ, George Duvivier on bass, and Art Edgehill on drums – and titles include "Very Saxy", "Fourmost", "Foot Pattin", and "Light & Lovely". CD

An incredibly rich collection of work from the legendary Brunswick and Dakar Records labels – and one of the first to really get at the labels' rich legacy of 7" singles that were never issued on any sort of full length albums! The Brunswick sound was a powerhouse in the late 60s and early 70s – a force that saw big records from The Chi-Lites, Jackie Wilson, Artistics, and others – yet the company also recorded a heck of a lot more music too – all of which was every bit as great as the hits, from the grooves at the bottom, to the tight arrangements in the middle, and the fantastic range of vocals on the top! This series finally gets at digging into all the many artists who never issued full albums on Brunswick or Dakar Records – and this second volume features 26 tracks that include "Love Grows Bitter" by Billy Butler, "I'm In Danger" by The Visitors, "Love Ain't Nothin But Pain" by Marvin Smith, "One More Time" by Benny Scott, "I'm So Glad" by Herb Johnson & The Impacts, "TCB" by Billy Jackson, "The Chase Is On" by Johnny Howard, "There Oughta Be A Law" by Alvin Valentine, "Darling You Don't Send Me No More" by Ronnie Mitchell, "You Don't Want Me Any More" by Shirley Karol, "Just Be For Real" by Johnny Moore, and "Take A Little Louder" by Wales Wallace.
