Eddie Lockjaw Davis with Shirley ScottJaws ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... $8.99
Bluesy quartet material by Lockjaw, with his combo that featured Shirley Scott on organ and Arthur Edgehill on drums. The tracks are standards, but 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. Titles include "I'll Never Be The Same", "Old Devil Moon", "Too Close For Comfort", "Tangerine", and "But Not For Me". CD

Jimmy Forrest with Shirley ScottHeart Of The Forrest ... CD
Muse, 1978. Used ... $6.99
A really classic tenor/organ sort of album – one recorded live in the late 70s, but with the sort of open-ended feel we remember from Shirley Scott's late 50s material with Eddie Lockjaw Davis! Jimmy Forrest is one of those players that always has a nice little bite in his tone – and he sounds especially sharp here, working with Shirley at a small club in Michigan – helping the organist to hit notes she was hardly reaching at the time, and really taking the sound back to the gutbuckety years of early Hammond jazz. Randy Marsh completes the group on drums, and titles include "Love For Sale", "These Foolish Things", "Take The A Train", and "Night Train". CD

Impulse, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... $8.99
Swinging organ tracks from Shirley, with large band backing by Oliver Nelson, very much in the mode of Jimmy Smith's albums with Nelson on Verve! Includes a nice reading of the theme from "Shot In The Dark", plus "Hoe Down", "Shadows Of Paris", and "Great Scott". Also includes a side of trio material, including one track that features Shirley on vocals. Titles on that stuff include "Make Someone Happy", "5 O'Clock Whistle", and "The Blues Ain't Nothin But Pain". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley ScottOn A Clear Day ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the best Shirley Scott albums ever – a wonderfully groovy little set that seems to stand head and shoulders above some of her other trio dates of the 60s! Shirley really hits a nice clean groove here – a sense of tone we don't always hear this beautifully on earlier Prestige dates, with almost an influence from some of the 60s bossa organists, which seems to show up in the grooves as well. But there's also a deeper swing too – one that seems to come from the album's tight rhythms from Ron Carter's bass and Jimmy Cobb's drums – both of whom snap the groove very tight, and keep Shirley's solos very lean, very clean. Titles include "What The World Needs Now", "Corcovado", "Instant Blues", and "On A Clear Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott & Stanley TurrentineBlue Flames ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1964. Used ... $7.99
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". CD

Shirley Scott & Stanley TurrentineSoul Shoutin' ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $16.99
A killer record by Shirley Scott and Stanley Turrentine – and quite possibly the best they ever did together! The lady organist and husband tenorist play hard, firm, and strong – and the backing by Earl May and Grasella Oliphant is right in the pocket, and bubbles with a nice strong soul jazz groove. The record features their famous version of "In The Still Of The Night", taken at triple-time, with some excellent solo work by both players. Other tracks include 'Gravy Waltz", "Deep Down Soul", and "Soul Shoutin". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw DavisEddie Lockjaw Davis Cookbook – Vol 3 ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Volume 3 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 Richardson on flute and tenor. Tracks include "Heat & Serve", "Simmerin", and "The Goose Hangs High". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw DavisJaws In Orbit ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Sealed ... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisStreetlights (I Only Have Eyes For You/Trackin') ... CD
Prestige, 1962. Used ... $16.99
Two killers from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – both records that are different from his Cookbook sessions with Shirley Scott, and his twin-tenor battles with Johnny Griffin! First up is I Only Have Eyes For You – easily one of our favorite Eddie Lockjaw Davis albums! The record's a lot livelier than most – and it's recorded with the little-known Paul Weeden trio, who featured a young Don Patterson on organ. Weeden's a pretty good guitarist himself, and the whole session has a nice groovy groovy feel. Titles include "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Street Lights", and "The Way You Look Tonight" – and all tracks are taken at a good clip, with a strong club sound to them. Next is Trackin – a tight little soul jazz cooker from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – done with a sound that's leaner and cleaner than some of his Cookbook sessions – thanks to great Hammond from Don Patterson, working here in the trio of guitarist Paul Weeden! The combo's totally great – nicely focused, and hitting that more mature soul jazz swing that started to really come into play during the mid 60s – that stripping down of the organ stops, focused bite on tenor, and tight comping of guitar – all of which the combo carry off wonderfully – with help from George Duvivier on bass and Billy James on drums. There's a nice long cut with a laidback groove called "Beano", and a number of other shorter standards given the tenor/organ treatment – including "What's New", "Day By Day", and "Robbin's Nest". CD

King, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A nice little set that combines some of Eddie's rare work for King from the mid 50s! Eddie's tenor is in wonderful form here, working with a real sense of economy on the album's short tracks – a sense that you don't always get in some of his more stretched-out sets for Prestige. Backing on most tracks is by an organ trio – with either Shirley Scott or Doc Bagby at the keys – and titles include "Mean To Me", "The Happy Whistler", "Smooth Ride", "Yesterdays", and "If I Were A Bell".

Dexter GordonAmerican Classic ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An unusual later set from the great Dexter Gordon – and a record that features the surprising addition of Hammond organ! Shirley Scott's on the record with Dex, and plays organ on half the cuts (Kirk Lightsey handles piano on the others) – bringing a soulful depth to the record which then seems to inspire Gordon to move into the sort of territory we might have expected from Stanley Turrentine back in the 60s! Grover Washington's on the record, blowing soprano sax on a few cuts with Scott – and reminding us of his deeper soul jazz roots – and other players include David Eubanks on bass and Eddie Gladden on drums. Titles include "Besame Mucho", "Skylark", "Sticky Wicket", and "For Soul Sister" – plus an interview with Dex! LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah Mc Lawler & Richart OttoWe Bring You Swing ... LP
Vee Jay, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of a few rare albums that the team of Lawler and Otto cut for Vee Jay during the late 50s – all of them showing the stranger side of the Chicago jazz scene, a underrecognized one that mixes a high-concept approach with south side soul jazz, in an attempt that might have been aimed at the downtown crowds. Sarah McLawler is a female organist – in the mode of early Shirley Scott – and Otto is a violinist, with a style that's somewhere between Eddie South and Stuff Smith. Here, they're backed by a rhythm section that includes Redd Holt and Eldee Young, as well as guitarist Lefty Bates – and the quintet swings easily on shorter tracks that are mostly standards. Titles include "Robbins Nest", "Midnight Sun", "Caravan", "My Reverie", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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.

Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used ... Temporarily 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".

Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

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.

✨✧ Major HolleyDefinitive Black & Blue Sessions – Excuse Me Ludwig ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Major Holley's a hell of a bassist – one who's soulful sound is probably best-remembered behind organist Shirley Scott in the early 60s, and a player who really does a great job of bringing older modes forward with fresh twists in later generations too! This mid 70s session is an overlooked portrait of Holley's genius – as some moments almost recall the late 40s sound of Slam Stewart, particularly in the way the Major works out sweeter notes – while others have a wider sort of Eldee Young quality – as melodic as rhythmic, but always nicely complicated, yet in an organic way. Holley often sings alongside his bass – again like Stewart or Young, but with a vibe that's almost more like some of the 70s electric players, even though he's playing acoustic – and there's also some lyrical moments that maybe have some of the path forward that Red Mitchell was also taking on the European scene of the 70s. Holley's not the only strength here – as the trio also features very strong work from Gerry Wiggins on piano, who's in a great sort of setting here that brings out some different sounds. Drummer Oliver Jackson is the final member of the group – and titles include "Lamb Stew For Slam", "Excuse Me Ludwig", "Salty Mama Cassoulet", "Willow Weep For Me", "Raincheck", and "Like Someone In Love". CD features three unissued tracks – including "Stolen Sweets" and "This Is The End Of A Beautiful Friendship" – plus an alternate of "Excuse Me Ludwig". CD

Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A rare non-Blue Note 60s date as a leader from Stanley Turrentine – recorded for Impluse when his (then) wife Shirley Scott was contracted to the label – and featuring the talents of both players on some very groovy tracks! The quartet features both Stan's tenor and Shirley's Hammond – with bass by Ron Carter and drums from Mack Simpkins – all in an easy-going groove that recalls some of the best Turrentine/Scott pairings on Prestige! There's a quality here that's relaxed, but never lazy – professional, but never slick – and the album's great proof that although both players could be great on their own, they often sounded even better together at this point in their careers. The album features a cool version of "On a Clear Day", which Shirley always manages to kick into a nice groove – plus the tracks "Good Lookin Out", "Let It Go", "Sure As You're Born", "T'Aint What You Do", and "Ciao Ciao". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMod Jazz ... LP
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite compilations of all time – a smoking batch of soulful jazz from the 60s, with a slight bit of funk and blues thrown in as well! The set's exactly what's promised in the title – jazz cuts, but with an ultra-cool mod vibe – the kind of soulful sounds that played big with the younger London crowd digging American music in the mid 60s – and also the kind of music you'd be likely to find blasting out of a backroom jukebox on the west side of Chicago! There's loads of rare single mixes of LP tracks on the set, and a number of smoking 45s from artists you might know better from more mainstream work – really hitting hard here, alongside a few special numbers from the indie underground too. Tracks are cool enough for old school hipsters – but appealing enough to bring in a new listener too – and as proof of that, we've given this one away for many years as a Christmas present. The collection features 25 tracks in all – non-stop pleasure throughout – with titles that include "Soul Shoutin" by Shirley Scott, "Tengo Tango" by Cannonball Adderley Sextet, "Whip It On Me" by Billy Hawks, "Yeh Yeh" by Mongo Santamaria, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, "I'm Ready" by Otis Spann, "Mama Rufus" by Merced Blue Notes, "Theme From NYPD" by Johnny Hammond, "Step Out & Get It" by The Nomos, "Why Don't You Do Right" by Mark Murphy, "Collard Greens" by Freddie McCoy, "Theme From The Carpetbaggers" by Jack McDuff, "Filthy McNasty" by Eddie Jefferson, "Evil Ways" by Cal Tjader, "Kenny's Theme" by Kenny Burrell, and "Games" by Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones.

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineHustlin' (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD

✨✧ VariousLas Vegas Grind Vol 7 ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.
