Los KeysMister TCB (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $4.99
There's a great mix of sock-soul and funk going on here – as a raw-voiced lead singer belts out the lyric over riffing guitar and romping drums – all while some horns come into the mix, cooking things up with almost a Texas soul sort of style! Part 2 is nice and loose, with some great instrumental moments too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Diana Ross & The Supremes with The TemptationsTCB ... LP
Motown, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
One of the odder 60s LPs from the Supremes, the soundtrack to a film that starred the group, with some guest appearances by The Temptations – in Motown-show versions of tracks that often feature the singers lapsing into medleys of other tunes, or doing some popular hits of the day. Titles include "Respect", "Somewhere", "Stop In The Name Of Love", "TCB", "For Once In My Life", "Hello Young Lovers", "I Hear A Symphony", and "The Impossible Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles LloydSwiss Radio Days Vol 46 – Montreux Jazz Festival 1967 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A really fantastic live performance from the Charles Lloyd group of the late 60s – a double-length set that's a wonderful complement to their classic albums on Atlantic Records! The group is great – a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Ron McClure on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – fantastic partners for the freewheeling style of Lloyd on both tenor and flute, as the group work here through modes and melodies that feel years ahead of their time – all spun out on these long, extended performances that are mindblowing throughout! Swiss Radio recorded the material in 1967, and we wonder why it's taken so long to come out – as the whole thing is completely essential, and features long takes on "Love Ship", "Days & Nights Waiting", "Lady Gabor", "Forest Flower", "Love Song To A Baby", and "Sweet Georgia Bright".

✨✧ Count BasieSwiss Radio Days Vol 20 – Basel 1956 – Part 2 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1956. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Count Basie cooks things up nicely here – really taking off in a live setting with that renewed energy that made his work of the 50s some of his best! The group here is large, but can swing with effortless ease, and stop and turn on a dime – tremendous accomplishments from a lineup that features Thad Jones and Joe Newman on trumpets, Henry Coker and Benny Powell on trombones, and Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Marshal Royal, and Bill Graham on reeds – all driven strongly by Basie's piano, the guitar of Freddie Green, bass of Eddie Jones, and thunderous drums of Sonny Payne! Joe Williams sings on a handful of tracks – and titles include "The Comeback", "Teach Me Tonight", "Alright Ok You Win", "Dinner With Friends", "Plymouth Rock", and "Smack Dab In The Middle". CD

✨✧ Don RedmanSwiss Radio Days Vol 11 – Don Redman Orchestra, Geneva 1946 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1946. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great live set from one of the large group giants – alto saxophonist Don Redman, one of the key 40s forces in bringing things forward from the swing years to the generation of modern jazz! That shift is heard here beautifully – on tunes recorded for Swiss Radio in the mid 40s, with an excellent lineup that also includes Don Byas on tenor, Peanuts Holland on trumpet, Quentin Jackson on trombone, Billy Taylor on piano, and Tyree Glenn on both trombone and vibes – the latter of which get some great space at the start of the set. Arrangements are nearly all by Redman, and all mighty fresh – and titles include "Laura", "Embraceable You", "Tea For Two", "These Foolish Things", "Stormy Weather", "Carry Me Blues", and "How High The Moon".

✨✧ Franco Ambrosetti, Andy Scherrer, Roman Schwaller & OthersSwiss Radio Days Vol 39 – Jazz Live Trio Featuring Swiss Artists ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A special set of work from the Swiss Radio Days series – a great run of titles that usually features American and European artists recorded live by Swiss Radio – but which this time around features a distinct lineup of all-Swiss soloists, as a really great showcase of that nation's overlooked jazz talents! The set begins with sparkling trumpet lines from Franco Ambrosetti – really stretching out on long tracks that feature support from the Jazz Live Trio of Klaus Koening on piano, Peter Frei on bass, and Peter Schmidlin on drums – on titles that include the original "For Flying Out Proud", and the long "Things We Did Last Summer". Next is a twin-tenor lineup – both Andy Scherrer and Roman Schwaller, blowing on two Schwaller originals – "First Step" and "Ballad For Mal" – both of which have a nicely sharp edge! Next, trumpeter Hans Kennel and tenorist Thomas Grunwald join the Jazz Live Trio – on "Groove Gogam Groove" and "Zumurrud", taken together in one long version. Last up, alto saxophonist Daniel Bourquin joins the trio, which features drums from Pierre Favre instead of Schmidlin – on the originals "Oben Ohne" and "Unten Ohne". CD

✨✧ Lionel HamptonSwiss Radio Days Vol 18 – Mustermesse Basel 1953 Part 2 ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1953. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Lionel Hampton orchestra in all of its glory – a group that's not only one of the most top-shelf large ensembles of its time, but also a key incubator for jazz talent in years to come! The presentation here is amazing – at one level the group can romp with all the R&B-styled touches that Hamp helped forge in the 40s – but at another, they sparkle with fantastic elements of new trends in modern jazz – yet while staying wonderfully soulful. The lineup here will give you a great flavor of these qualities – filled with future giants that include Art Farmer and Clifford Brown on trumpets, Jimmy Cleveland and Benny Powell on trombones, Quincy Jones on piano, Monk Montgomery on bass, and a sax lineup that includes Gigi Gryce, Clifford Scott, and Anthony Ortega. Sonny Parker sings just a bit – and titles on this second volume include "Gryce Suite", "Kingfish/Drinking Wine", "Setting The Pace/Flying Home", "Curley", and "Jazz Group". CD

Bobby PattersonMy Thing Is Your Thing – Jetstar Strut From Bobby Patterson (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jet Star/Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99
Funky Texas soul from the mighty Bobby Patterson – a singer who also recorded for the Jewel/Paula label in the early 70s, but who's heard here on earlier work for Jetstar Records, plus a few never-issued tracks! Bobby's voice has this great raw style – one that crackles even more as the grooves move faster – really hitting with sock-soul energy on just about every track in this set – clearly inspired by the music of James Brown, but very much off into his own bag – a special funky legacy that's very much Patterson's own! Titles include "My Thing Is Your Thing", "Busy Busy Bee", "Mama's Got A New Bag Too", "TCB Or TYA", "Soul Is Our Music", "I'm Leroy I'll take Her", "I'm A Slave To You", "What A Wonderful Night For Love", "Broadway Ain't Funky No More", "My Baby's Coming Back To Me", and "The Knock Out Power Of Love".

VariousBrunswick/Dakar Soul Stream Vol 1 – The Sweetest Thing ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
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 first volume features 24 tracks that include "One Two Three Hamilton Street" by The Equations, "The Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3, "Stay With Me Baby" by BW & The Next Edition, "Where Our Love Has Gone" by Ronnie LaShannon, "Soul Strut" by Floyd Smith, "Let's TCB" by Richard Parker, "Contract On Your Love" by Chuck Bernard, "Funky Fatso" by The Aqua Sonics, "Dynamite" by John Freeman, "Forever & A Day" by Wales Wallace, "Turn Me Loose" by Donnie Vann, "You're My Sweet" by The Realistics, and "Falling In Love" by The Complaments.

VariousDetroit Funk Vaults – Funk & Soul From Dave Hamilton 1968 to 1979 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Funky soul from Detroit – the second foray into the uber-rare and unreleased funk treasures recorded at Dave Hamilton's Motor City studio – and an even deeper look at what's turning out to be one of the greatest long-buried funk catalogs to come to light in recent years! The collection includes some singles released on Hamilton's own TCB and other imprints, some that were licensed to other labels, plus a wealth of unreleased material. There's straight ahead funk vocals and instrumentals, and numbers that have more of a freewheeling, adventurous vibe – albeit with a raw funk backdrop! Includes numbers by The Deacons, Prophet & His Disciples, Chico & Buddy, Billy Garner, OC Tolbert, Little Ann, Dave Hamilton himself, The Webb People, The Pepper and more. 22 tracks in all: "A Drop In The Bucket" by The Deacons, "You Fool, You Fool Pt 1" by Prophet & His Disciples, "A Thing Called The Jones" by Chico & Buddy, "The Bad Things (You Said To Me)" by The Barrino Brothers, "Ghetto Stride" by Dave Hamilton, "Who" by Jackie Dee, "Love Bandit" by OC Tolbert, "Simon Says' by The Future Kind, "Clap Your Hands" by The Tokays, "I'm Sending Vibrations" by The Webb People and more.

✨✧ SylversSylvers III ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The last in a trio of legendary early records by The Sylvers – a very hip group from the LA scene of the early 70s – and one that would go much greater fame in later years, but who maybe never sounded as great as on their first few records! There's a sharpness, a freshness here that gets way past most conventional group soul styles of the time – especially those used with younger acts – and The Sylvers already have a very keen ear for taking those special new changes in west coast soul, and working them to their best advantage – a mode they'd pursue even more strongly in later years, when they got some time of their own in the control booth with other artists. Here, though, they're a great vocal powerhouse upfront – serving up a lot of their own original material, and working with Michael Viner, of Incredible Bongo Band fame, on production. Titles include the excellent track "I Aim To Please", which has a good breakbeat intro, plus "TCB", "Love Over Mind", "Be My Love", "Am I Truly Yours", and "Could Be You". CD
