✨✧ VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature (unmixed) ... LP
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his selection here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. The LP features a dozen Black Jazz tracks, all unmixed – and titles include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Patrice RushenSignature ... CD
Warner/Discovery, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later session from Patrice Rushen, but still plenty darn great – and a wonderful extension of the soulful fusion grooves she first started hitting way back at the end of the 70s! The album's a bit smooth, but never too commercial – and Patrice mixes in a fair bit of acoustic piano with the keyboards, which gives the album a warm, jazz-based grounding, and sometimes even more sensitivity than in years past. Players include Paul Jackson Jr on guitar, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Kirk Whalum and Gerald Albright on saxes – and titles include a great cover of "The Sweetest Taboo", plus "Sneaky Pete", "Softly", "Hurry Up This Way Again", "Almost Home", "Wise Ol Souls", and "Oneness".

Mose AllisonLocal Color ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+ ... $69.99
An early, rootsy Mose Allison sides, mostly instrumental, bluesy piano trio numbers, but Mose busts out with some vocals on an early version of his signature tune "Parchman Farm" and "Lost Mind", and a spot of trumpet on "Trouble In Mind" . He's joined by Addison Farmer on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums, and the instrumental sides include "Crepuscular Air", "Mojo Woman", "I'll Never Be Free" and "Ain't You A Mess". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSouth Of The Border ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1963. Used ... $8.99
Herb Alpert's going South Of The Border again in another marvelous set of modern mariachi tunes – taking that wonderful Tijuana Brass sound, and turning it towards a number of familiar hits of the day! There's equal parts 60s instrumental pop and Latin groove in the mix – and the punctuated yet compressed Alpert production really hits some sublime moments. Herb's really finding his own sound here – not just the one that would be used on other Tijuana Brass albums, but also on the genius to come from A&M! Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Up Cherry Street", "Mexican Shuffle", "El Presidente", "All My Loving", and "Numero Cinco". CD

AtmosphereSeven's Travels (with bonus tracks & download) ... LP
Rhymesayers, 2003. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... $23.99 28.98
Atmosphere's signature sound full force – but also featuring some of their most experimental material to this point! Slug bounces along melodically, tortured and true to his nature, yet he comes off a little (just a little) more optimistic this time and he recites more than just tales of love lost. He STILL is at his tightest when weaving wonderful heart-wrenching stories instead of bragging, yet I don't think you hear the name Lucy once on this album. Sean Daley, the philosopher? – maybe we'll see more and more of that in the future. ANT's production is sounding much much better since God Loves Ugly – these beats pound just a little harder, seemingly influenced by punk and classic rock, thankfully without coming anywhere near classifiable rap rock. There still is a whole lotta soul in there, which is very nice, yet he still ain't afraid to pitch the formula, say sample some off kilter scatting or a ripping metal guitar. Tracks include "Bird Sings Why The Caged I Know", "Cats Van Bags", "National Disgrace", "Liquor Lyles Cool July". "Good Times", "Keys To Life Vs 15 Minutes Of Fame", "Reflections" and more. 2019 deluxe edition F Side bonus tracks: "Say Shh", "DMFD", "On The Battle Field", "Quiet Pimpin". LP, Vinyl record album

Was there ever a greater house team than Larry Heard and Robert Owens? Owens soulful vocals over a very driving track from Heard that still has his signature jazzy warmth makes this single one of our favorite hard to get first generation Chicago house tracks! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Full color label pressing. NOTE – In Fair condition, plays with a good amount of pops and crackles, and with marks that click on the instrumental and acapella.)

Ikebe ShakedownIkebe Shakedown ... CD
Ubiquity, 2011. Used ... $9.99
The much anticipated full length debut of Brooklyn Afro Funk and psych soul-influenced combo Ikebe Shakedown – following up their tight, promising EP on the Colemine label with an excellent self-titled set on Ubiquity! One of our favorite things about Ikebe Shakedown's style is the way they blend signature elements of classic Afro Funk and soul with more broadly influenced grooves. Heavy horns and pummeling drums, vamping guitar licks and elastic basslines are prominent and funky – but they work with more measured and spaced out material, too. It's roomy enough to let the individual musicianship shine, and the production is really great. Includes "Tujunga", "Kumasi Walk", "No Name Bar", "Tame The Beats", "Don't Contradict", "Refuge", "In Circles", "Asa-Sa", "The Hold Up", "The Viking", "Five Points", "Pepper", "Green & Black" and more.

Teddi KingAll The King's Songs ... LP
Coral, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
The title tells the story of the album's concept – as Teddi King pays tribute to a dozen male "kings" of music – including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dick Haymes, and Billy Eckstine! The tunes are all signature numbers by each of the male stars – redone by Teddi here with a female twist, and set to backings by Lew Douglas and Johnny Richards – both of whom give Teddi some of the best support of her 50s career. Richards' backings are especially great – nicely dynamic, in a way that breaks past some of Teddi's sleepier qualities – and even on the mellower numbers, the King vocals are in full force, sung with even more promise than on previous albums for RCA. Titles include "Flamingo", "Unforgettable", "April Showers", "A Cottage For Sale", "This Love Of Mine", "Keeping Out Of Mischief Now", and "Temptation". LP, Vinyl record album

MotorheadAce Of Spades ... LP
Bronze/BMG, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Landmark British metal from Motorhead– inarguably one of the greatest albums ever in the genre! If there's a flaw to Ace Of Spades, it's that Lemmy & Co.'s signature song – the title track, of course – is so damned amazing, you want to drop the needle on it 10 times in a row before going on to the rest of the record. If only more rock & roll albums had this "problem". Other tracks include "The Chase Is Better Than The Catch", "Love Me Like A Reptile", "Shoot You In The Back", "Fast And Loose", "Fire, Fire", "Jailbait", "Bite The Bullet", "The Hammer", "Dance", "Live To Win" and more.

Sa-Ra Creative PartnersNuclear Evolution – The Age Of Love (plus bonus disc) ... CD
Ubiquity, 2009. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
Cosmic hip hop soul from Om'Mas Keith, Shafiq Husayn & Taz Arnold – a long awaited proper full length from the Sa-Ra Creative Partners – and an excellent one! Sa-Ra's signature spacey funk & beatcraft, hypnotic and boundless grooves have been critical behind the scenes for some of their superstar friends, most famously Kanye West and Erykah Badu, but Sa-Ra's own records haven't gotten them to mainstream hugeness. The mainstream's loss is the indie scene's gain, though, as this set for Ubiquity as all we hoped it would be and more. The beats and bass are insistent, headnodding hip hop funk, with spacier textures galore, and the tunes range from an astral hip hop soul to jazzy funk, and the roster of guests is as deep as Sa-Ra's music – from Erykah Badu, to other female vocalists such as Debi Nova, Noni Limar & Rozzi Dame bringing the sweeter vibes, plus legendary jazz sax great Gary Bartz and his quartet! Tracks include "Spacefruit" with Debbie Nova, "Dirty Beauty" with Erykah Badu, "Traffika", "Bitch Baby", "Love Czars", "Gemini's Rising" with Rozzi Dame, "Love Today", "Can I Get U Hi?", "Cosmic Ball" with the Gary Bartz Quartet and more. CD version includes a bonus disc with 6 more tracks: "Spaceways Theme", "Just Like A Baby", "Double Dutch (Co Co Pops)" feat Aazable, "Death Of A Star (Supernova)", "Powder Bump" and "Hangin By A String".

John ScofieldLoud Jazz ... CD
Gramavision, 1988. Used ... $13.99
The sound is never too loud here – and John Scofield's right out in the lead on most numbers, carving out those soulfully-inflected, modern-styled licks that really characterized his sound back in the day! Scofield's emerged as more of a traditionalist in recent years, but on 80s dates like these he was really embracing the bigger sounds of the time – and has a way of mixing his guitar roots with kind of a fuzzier, more electric vibe – of the sort that the Gramavision label could do wonderfully at the time. The group is mostly a quintet, with Don Alias on percussion – and keyboards are by Robert Aries on all tracks, but George Duke steps in with some solos as well. Titles include "Signature Of Venus", "Dirty Rice", "Did It", "Loud Jazz", "Otay", "True Love", and "Igetthepicture". CD

Late 70s solo effort from this founding member of the Wailers, self-produced on his own Solomonic label and then licensed to Island for worldwide distribution. A solid roots effort from one of the most significant moments in Jamaican music history, this album maintains Livingston's nicely crafted take on the heavily political roots rock that was both his and the Wailers' signature sound, and features backing from much of the Wailers band, though Robbie Shakespeare takes Family Man's bass spot. Includes a nice version of the Wailers' classic "Get Up, Stand Up", plus "Johnny Too Bad", "Follow Fashion Monkey", "Who Feels It", "Scheme Of Things", "Quite Trying", "Wanted Children" and "Moses Children".

His signature sweeping soul style is fully in place, and the rich production complements the slower get-your-groove-on ballads nicely. Includes "Your Sweetness Is My Weakness", "September When I First Met You", "It's Only Love Doing Its Thing", "Sha La La Means I Love You" and 3 more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousThis Is Real – Kent/Modern Deep Soul Treasures ... CD
Kent/Modern/P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge helping of deep soul tracks from the south – South California, that is – from the mighty Kent/Modern label, home to a huge amount of under-discovered music in the 60s! Modern first hit its stride recording R&B and blues in the postwar years – but during the 60s, the company continued as a strong indie, through its Kent label – with a real dedication to the sorts of sounds that were not getting as much exposure elsewhere! Kent recorded a fair bit of artists from points south and east – hitting the southern circuit to find talent as much as Atlantic Records – but they also allowed the artists to really do their own thing, and come up with standout styles that aren't nearly as hammered down into a single label signature approach. The result is a great blend of music, as you'll hear here on this 48 track set – overflowing with gems by Earl Wright, Ruth Davis, Robert Ramsey, Danny Monday, Jimmy Robins, Foxfire, Johnny Adams, Vernon Garrett, The Other Brothers, Bobby John, Billy Watkins, The Sims Twins, Willie Gauff & The Love Brothers, Freeman King, Jeanette Jones, and many more!

Incredible earlier work from Johnny Otis and other great players – the first volume in Ace's Johnny Otis Story – in a number of settings with players including The Robins, Little Esther, Big Mama Thornton, The Jayos, The Sheiks and others! Remarkable, formative west coast rhythm & blues that really sounds great – from stripped down formations to bigger R&B orchestra numbers that are just as incredible – cut for Modern, Savoy, Peacock, Mercury, Dig, Federal and other labels. 25 tracks: "Johnny Otis Signature", "Good Old Blues" with Pete Guitar Lewis, "Double Crossing Blues" with The Robins & Little Esther, "Oopy-Doo", "Cattle Train" with Jimmy "Hurricane Edwards" Beasley, "Shake It Lucy Baby", "Buy Bye Baby" with Marie Adams, "Ma (He's Making Eyes At Me)", "Every Beat Of My Heart" with The Royals and more, building up to '58's huge "Willie And The Hand Jive".

EMI/7T's (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
Sharp hooks, huge melodies, and 70s guitar pop greatness from Pilot – a genius pop group who only gave the world a handful of records, all of them pretty darn great! From The Album Of The Same Name includes their signature tune, "Magic" – and it's one of those songs everyone knows, whether or not they no who made it – but Pilot soars all around on these tunes. The guitars have punch, but the falsetto vocals are the main cabin of this vessel – and it's grand 70s soft rock of the first order! Other tracks include "Just A Smile", Lucky For Some", "Girl Next Door", "Sooner Or Later", "Never Give Up", "Sky Blue", "Never Give Up", and "Over The Moon". Second Flight is the excellent second album from Pilot, really perfecting the guitars, keyboards and vocals and hooks formula that shot them into the pop consciousness a year or so earlier – probably their best album ever! The opener "You're My No 1" is so catchy, we can hardly believe it's not a throwback pop radio staple, and the record has a few of tracks nearly as grand. The vocals & harmonies are better arranged, and the guitars and keyboards are in that great comfort zone between the glam pop of the previous couple years and the new wave pop to come. Somewhat silly bubble gum lyricism, sure, but it's tasty stuff! Other tracks include "January", "Love Is", "Call Me Round", "To You Alone", "Passion Piece", "Dear Artist" and more, plus the bonus demos "You're Devotion", "Love Is", "January" and "Lady Luck". Morin Heights is later work from 70s soft rock tunesmiths Pilot – a couple years on from their biggest hit, but still making gloriously catchy tunes! The hallmarks of their earlier stuff is here, with some twists & turns. The lyrics are the kind of lovestruck or lovelorn naivete that's cloying to some, and hopelessly endearing to others – relying more this time out and an overall catchiness than huge choruses and hummable singles. We'd fly with these guys anytime! Titles include "Hold On", "Canada", "First After Me", "Steps", "The Mover", "Penny In My Pocket", and "Maniac". Two's A Crowd is the last full 70s album from Pilot – just a duo by this point, but working with all the punch and panache of their early records! As before, their ability for hook-heavy tunes is amazing – as there's so many numbers here that could have been huge AM radio hits, but which also have some surprisingly thoughtful lyrical touches, and arrangements that are simple, but which really pack a hell of a punch. Titles include "Monday Tuesday", "Big Screen Kill", "Creeping Round At Midnight", "Library Door", and "Mr Do Or Die". CD features lots of related bonus tracks – including "Pamela", "Ra Ta Ta", "Just Let Me Be", "Maniac", "Us", "Lady Luck", "No Ties No Strings", "Are You In Love", "Just A Smile", and "Stop & Let Go".

Dave BrubeckTime Further Out ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Like Dave Brubeck's legendary Time Out set? Try this one – a great record that takes off from the concept of the first, but which goes in some very fresh new directions – using the same great group with Paul Desmond on alto, Eugene Wright on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Dave's still working out some nutty time signatures here – but apart from the science, the thing that really makes the record cook is Desmond's alto – icy, edgey, floating, and always a treat – almost even more amazing in the space of some of these offbeat numbers. Titles include "Maori Blues", "Far More Drums", "Bluetee", "Far More Blue", and "It's A Raggy Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram Impex pressing.)
