✨✧ Webster LewisLive At Kongsberg Jazz 1971 ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally great work from the legendary keyboard giant Webster Lewis – very different than the major label records he cut in America during the late 70s, and instead this wonderful blend of jazz, funk, and soul! Webster plays Hammond, and spins out tunes that start slow, then build nicely – sometimes instrumental, sometimes with vocals from singer Judd Watkins, in a style that pushes from a 60s soul jazz vibe into much more spiritual territory! The feel is similar to his Live At Club 7 material, also recorded in Europe around the same time – and it's a great picture of a much more powerful jazz side of Lewis that wasn't recorded in the studio. The rest of the group features Bobby Greene on alto, Stan Strickland on tenor and flute, and Jimmy Hopps on drums – and titles include "Sunshine Blossom", "Glory Of Morning"," Pinout", "The Look Of Love", and "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered, limited edition of 250 copies. Note: This pressing has a very slight warp, common to all copies we have – but it plays fine, and is very limited, so we're still offering them for stock.)

✨✧ Webster LewisLive In Norway – The Club 7 Live Tapes ... CD
Plastic Strip Press (Norway), 1971. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
The earliest work we've ever heard from keyboardist Webster Lewis – and a set that's quite different than his late 70s groovers for Columbia Records! The music here is equal parts jazz, soul, and funk – spun out of over a set of long tracks recorded in Oslo at the start of the 70s – and done in a very righteous mode overall! Even at this early age, Lewis is a tremendous talent on the keys – hitting the Hammond and electric piano with a groove that's somewhere in between Doug Carn or Charles Earland at the time – and always with a free-flowing, very exploratory sound that's wonderfully recorded throughout – and which almost makes the record feel like an American classic on the Black Jazz label! The drums on the set are by Jimmy Hopps – who brings in some funky beats at just the right moments – and other musicians include Bobby Greene on alto and Stan Strickland on tenor – plus Judd Watkins on vocals, who sings on some of the best songs with a deep-voiced quality that's really great! This double-length reissue really expands past the previous version on Counterpoint – and the 2CD set features 15 tracks that include "Do You Believe", "Saturday Night Opening", "Dear Sister", "Qvote Unqvote", "Mr Knots", "Space Rock", "Silent Lights", "Up On The Roof", "Club 7 Latin", "For Arne", "Twelve Gates To The City", and "Intermezzo".

Herbie HancockMagic Windows ... CD
Columbia (France), 1981. Used ... $9.99
A great little soul album from Herbie Hancock – but one that's often lost in the valleys between his bigger hits of the time! The record was cut in the space right before Herbie's big "Rockit" success – and it's a sweet bit of funky fusion that has a good dose of R&B in the mix – similar to other records from Hancock's Columbia label keyboardist contemporaries – like Rodney Franklin, Webster Lewis, or Charles Earland! All orchestrations are performed by Herbie on a host of keyboards and synthesizers, and just about every cut has vocals – from singers who include Sylvester, Gavin Christopher, and The Waters. But even with this soul component, Herbie still keeps things jazzy – using a good bit of keyboards to open up the tunes in the middle, and hitting hard on all numbers with that classic Hancock approach to funk! Titles include "Magic Number", "Tonight's The Night", "Everybody's Broke", "Help Yourself", and "Satisfied With Love". CD

✨✧ Herbie HancockDirectstep (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
CBS/Sony/Get On Down, 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare Japanese-only session from Herbie Hancock – very electric, and nicely funky in all the right parts! The set was recorded at the end of the 70s with amazing fidelity – and features a unique lineup that includes Webster Lewis on additional keyboards and Alphonse Mouzon on drums – alongside more familiar partners Bennie Maupin on reeds, Paul Jackson on bass, and Bill Summers on percussion! Given these last three, there's almost a slight Headhunters feel to the set – but the overall groove is a bit more mellow, with some wonderfully spacey touches that are super-soulful – and miles above anything that Herbie was recording in the US at the time. Titles include the sublime mellow groover "Butterfly", plus "Shiftless Shuffle", and the side-long jazzy jammer "I Thought It Was You"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousStreet Sounds Presents – Jazz Funk Classics – Compiled By Morgan Khan (3CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't think "jazz funk", think more "funky soul", or "soulful jazz" – as the collection here is filled with classic 70s gems that really blur the boundary between styles! Almost all these cuts have a strong jazz base at the core, but also bring in lots of funk and soul elements as well – from tight rhythms, to soaring vocals, to other key elements that helped lots of these tracks crossover big at the time – and still stay strong all these many years later! The package is a reworking of a classic series from the London scene in the 80s – a set of collections that was key to the rare groove scene at the time – and the 3CD set features 30 tracks that include "Whistle Bump" by Deodato, "Black Is The Color" by Wilbert Longmire, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "Westchester Lady" by Bob James, "Let The Music Play" by Charles Earland, "Strut" by Chico Hamilton, "Rock Creek Park" by The Blackbyrds, "Inherit The Wind" by Wilton Felder with Bobby Womack, "Harlem River Drive" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington, "Love Will Bring Us Back Together Again" by Roy Ayers, "Love Has Come Around" by Donald Byrd, "Expansions" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Always There" by Ronnie Laws, "Open Your Mind" by Kleeer, and lots lots more!

✨✧ Piano ChoirHandscapes (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic record on Strata East – and a concept that shouldn't work as well as it does, but which comes off perfectly – thanks to the strength of the players! As you might guess from the title, the group's an all-piano ensemble – one that features hip talents that include Harold Mabern, Sonelius Smith, Stanley Cowell, Nat Jones, Hugh Lawson, and Webster Lewis – coming together in ways that have the pianos handling every part of the music – rhythm, melody, and all these great little bits around the edges – all on these long, stretched-out tracks that have lots of room for solo contributions too! The vibe is very Strata East, just all-piano – and titles include "Effi", "Killers", "Precious Lord", "The Almoravids", and "Man Extensions". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 180 gram pressing!)
