Two By Jobim !!

Continuing with the Latin Jazz theme: Hearing the two distinctly
different versions of Águas de Março is what compels me to share
these albums. Not much is needed to be said about Antonio, which
you probably don't already know. He, and a handful of other Latin
performers changed music, internationally, once their work broke
out of its respective countries; Imitation followed. That isn't to
say there weren't other Latin musicians of talent and ingenuity.
But, people such as Jobim, and Gilberto, etc. were on top of
their game, by far. What beautiful sounds!

Marcos Valle !!

I am quite short on time today, so I apologize for the lack
of info, which I usually include with each post. With that
said, I was recently requested to share something Latin.
I first ran across Valle's work when I heard a Madlib
sample from Garra. Needless to say, his work is
stellar, so I bought two reissues put out by the
Light In The Attic label. Here they are.

Mystery Album #3 !!

Time for another shot in the dark. Although, I will say that those
of you who grabbed the previous mystery album will know what
you're getting into, because this is volume one of that series.
Expect more righteous spiritual Jazz! It includes songs by

1960 - 70's

Soul of Vietnam !!

This is soul born from very confusing and turbulent times. Vietnam
was the Boogieman who could snatch you away to a living nightmare.
Long story short, there is a lot of pain, hope and soul in this compilation
of songs centered around the topic; A Vietnam OST, of sorts. Including
the likes of The Mighty Hannibal, The Impressions and Joe Tex,
it's well worth having. I ran across this CD a few years ago, and
enjoyed the content enough to justify posting it. Enjoy.

Tracklist
1. William Bell-Marching Off To War
2. Roy C-Open Letter To The President
3. The Mighty Hannibal-Hymn #5
4. Joe Tex-I Believe I'm Gonna Make It
5. Johnny And Jon-Christmas In Vietnam
6. The O'Jays-There Is Someone Waiting Back Home
7. The Impressions-Choice Of Colors
8. Joe Tex-When Johnny Comes Marching Home
9. Swamp Dogg-Sam Stone

You Know The Feeling .....! !!

First off, I need to thank my friend Money Cat for sharing his file of this
album; The rip is not my doing. I bought a sealed copy of this on Ebay
the other week, based on the fact that he is a Texas Jazz artist who
resides/ plays in Austin. He worked at IBM, playing gigs on the side
until he was approached by Lionel Hampton to tour in Europe and
NYC, taking a hiatus from his job to do so. He then returned to
Austin and "almost became a musical recluse, not performing
again until 1977". He was then asked to play for Ray Charles,
which he quickly accepted, and soon received a Grammy nom.
for writing an arrangement of "Some Enchanted Evening".
More info on him can be found here.

Well, Dropbox says that I'm receiving too much traffic, so
my files have been suspended. I like to use Dropbox because
you viewers have no concern over getting a virus, or have to
deal with pop ups. Until I figure out how else I'd like to share

Black Jazz Records Discography !!

Co-founded in 1971 by Gene Russell (pianist) along with Dick Schoryl.
Russell founded the label as an alternative to traditional jazz, invoking a
more political and spiritual tone often with funk overtones. Black Jazz
released various types of music including funk, free jazz, and soul jazz.
According to a 1974 Billboard Magazine, one of the label's more successful
artists, Doug Carn, sold more records than Dave Brubeck and Ramsey Lewis.
The label existed for six years during its first run, and ended following the
death of Russell. In the early 1990s the label and its catalog were purchased
by James Hardge. While only one new album by Doug Carn was
released, the entire catalog was reissued on CD. -from Discogs.com

Gene Russell - New Direction 1971
Walter Bishop, Jr. - Coral Keys 1971
Doug Carn - Infant Eyes 1971
Rudolph Johnson - Spring Rain 1971
Calvin Keys - Shawn-Neeq 1971
Chester Thompson - Powerhouse 1971
Henry Franklin - The Skipper 1972
Doug Carn - Spirit Of The New Land 1972
The Awakening - Hear, Sense And Feel 1972
Gene Russell - Talk To My Lady 1973
Rudolph Johnson - The Second Coming 1973
Kellee Patterson - Maiden Voyage 1973

Henry Franklin - The Skipper At Home 1974
Calvin Keys - Proceed With Caution! 1974
Roland Haynes - The Second Wave 1975

Percussion Bitter Sweet !!

To me, Max Roach is up there with only a handful of others who
can be called the greatest Jazz musicians who ever lived. Most 
mistakenly think of him as just a talented drummer; His genius
extended far beyond that. Aside from also being an experimental
percussionist, he was a brilliant composer/ writer, and was very
active in the civil rights movements. I can't say enough about this
man, so go read about him if you're interested.

Bonus: Max & Abbey !!

This is a gathering of audio that I found of the live performance
of We Insist!, which was broadcast on Belgian television.
Although, not an official album, it is simply breathtaking.
I took the liberty to create a cover for it.

Clifford Jordan, tenor sax

Abbey Lincoln !!

Not only did she sing, she also acted, appearing in Mission: Impossible,
and Spike Lee's movie Mo’ Better Blues, playing the young Bleek's
mother, Lillian. Abbey was married to Max Roach for 8 years, and
that union created some highly regarded music such as It's Time (1961)
and the brilliant, Civil Rights themed We Insist! (1960). Her solo
albums from the 50's-70's are considered crowning achievements,
and that's where this post picks up. Here are four albums
by this atrociously talented woman.

The Library Vol. 1 (Musiche Composte Per il Cinema) !!

This 2005 collection features songs from 1970s Italian films composed
by the legendary Morricone. Selected by the maestro himself, this
18-track compilation presents whimsical pieces from comedies. Those
seeking Ennio's kinetic Western scores or startling horror movie music
should look elsewhere, since this disc focuses on some of the prolific
composer/arranger's most buoyant and melodic work. (from Allmusic.com)

Track List:
1. Passaporto per l'allegria
2. Ipocrisia
3. Furto-Commedia
4. Sbaglio e ambiguità
5. Giallo e rotativa
6. Pepper chewing-gum
7. A Florinda
8. La bambala
9. 18 Pari
10. L'errore
11. Letto a tre piazze più due
12. Prima di lasciarla
13. Acidamente dolce
14. Pioggia sui tetti
15. Quando arriva l'amore
16. Paurosamente sinistra
17. Questa pazza, pazza corsa
18. Un bacio asfissiante I:II

Invictus Records !!

I'm getting quite a lot of requested re-ups, and I am attempting to
fulfill them all in a timely manner. This compilation, although
states 'Vol. 1', is actually a lone survey of the mighty Invictus
Records: A Detroit based Soul label which was founded by several
former top Motown producers. Makes sense, right? The self-titled
album by 8th Day (post here) was my first exposure to the Invictus
catalog. And, so the love affair began. I came across this CD and
posted it many years ago, however the link is dead, and a few
viewers have asked for a resurrection. The track list can

Inner Crisis !!

Re-upped for the third time, this request is a well loved album.
 After his first year studying music theory at the Manhattan School
of Music he began performing regularly with Jackie McLean. After
he graduated he made his first jazz recording, McLean's Right Now!,
which featured two of Willis' compositions.Throughout his career he
has performed with a wide range of musicians, including a stint of seven
years as keyboardist for Blood, Sweat & Tears (beginning in 1972), and
spent several years as pianist for Nat Adderley. Enjoy it, if you hadn't
gotten when I last shared it

Roland Prince !!

I posted these albums back in 2012, when I first started blogging
after stumbling upon CD versions; Well worth the purchase.
The wiki page for Roland is incredibly short, literally stating
'Roland Prince was an Antiguan jazz guitarist. He was born in
St. John's. He died on July 15, 2016 aged 69.' There are
other sources to read about him, and sadly he was a part of
the mass musician exodus that was 2016.

Just For Fun !!

Associated for many years with Woody Herman's Herd, in 1965
he joined Count Basie but returned on many occasions to play with
Herman. Around that time he was also a member of Dusko Goykovich's
sextet, together with other musicians associated with the Herd.
Nistico's solo work contrasts his big band acts, being more
oriented towards bebop. He passed away at age 49.

Mystery Album #2 !!

All that I will say about this album is that it's absolute killin'
spiritual Jazz. And, it features a man who is now a professor at
TSU in Houston (his native city), and once had work released on
the highly coveted Judnell label, in the 70's: Thomas Meloncon.
He is a successful play write and poet, and also
made some badass music! There are several
other artists to enjoy on this, as well ...

Black Woman !!

Yet another Jazz great who died relatively young; 53. Sonny started
musically in his teens singing Doo Wop, until he moved on to collaborate
with Pharoah Sanders, and Alexander Solla in the late 60s. He wanted to play
tenor saxophone from his youth after hearing John Coltrane on Davis's
Kind of Blue on the radio at age 19, but his asthma prevented this.
Sharrock said repeatedly, however, that he still considered himself "a
horn player with a really fucked up axe.". I posted this album some
years ago, but the link is dead, and I have recently listened to it again.
So, here we are haha. Anyway, read more about him, if you're
interested. Now, for the album ...

A Request From Me

There is an album, or rather a series of albums that I am desperate to find. 
It's called American Giovane, and I'm looking specifically for the one
done by Daniela Casa. But I really want ANY of that series.
If any of you have it, please share it with me :)

Faith Is The Key !!

Founded by ordained bishop Larry H. Jordan and his brother-in-law
Frank Tinsley in the early 1980s, Enlightment was among the first groups
to fuse modern R&B production with gospel themes. Unfortunately, the
independent release of their 1984 debut album Faith Is The Key was
torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of
business. After more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album
by this Washington DC soul/gospel outfit has since been reissued; Once
unofficially, and now by Nature Sounds. However, Discogs reviews claim
that not only do some of the tracks have clicking sounds, but also the cover
art is blurred, leaving us to wonder if this too is unofficial or just poor
reproduction by the label. Regardless, enjoy!

Office Romance (Служебный роман) OST !!

USSR state label Мелодия (Melody) was founded in 1964. It was the only label
within the Soviet Union after that year. I recently came across six albums from
this label which were released in the 70's and 80's. This is by far the best of
those finds. In Cyrillic, the title is Служебный Роман, and it's soundtrack
meanders through Jazz, Library, and funky Pop. Mine is a 1979 reissue,
so I've provided both it's cover as well as the original.

The Music Library !!

The Music Library is a compilation of cover artwork from some
of the most important, and beautiful, library LPs made throughout
the 50s, 60s and 70s. It features a foreword by Dammers
and an exclusive CD of rare recordings. Library music (also known
as source music and, occasionally, mood music) was first made for people
who needed cheap, somewhat generic music as backgrounds for animations,
low-budget advertisements, and television programs. Unavailable commercially
to the public, this music was pressed beginning in the 1950s in limited
quantities, and then sent directly to production houses and
radio stations for use when necessary.

Guitar Interludes !!

I ran across this album the other day for only a couple dollars,
so I had to get it. Little did I know that this 1977 reissue is worth
about $50. The original is in the couple hundred range. Joe is 
considered by many to be one of the greatest Jazz guitarists
of the 20th century. This was apparently the record which
bumped him out of a career slump.

There Is A God Somewhere !!

Continuing with the theme of rare, yet killer Gospel-Soul,
this Nashville recorded God-revering album is considered
a Holy Grail of this subgenre. This vinyl rip is not my own,

However, I came to know of the album through an episode of
Crate Diggers. At this point, there have been several reissues, so

Everything - God Is Love '78 !!

Via Numero Group:
For outsider gospel visionary and Detroit native
Otis G. Johnson, the Holy Ghost was in the machine...
in this case a rhythm-equipped Hammond organ.
Everything - God Is Love 78, a singular 1978 mid-fi
document, features android percussion against chords of
Otis’s own invention, possessed by minor tonality and frequent
bum notes. Lifting it further are extemporaneous vocal
homilies to the rapture, love, and everything, plus occasional
“other” voicings that scratch at the periphery of the mix.
Homespun gospel rarely entered this dirge-like, intuitive
space, nor did it commonly achieve such a spectral and
captivating hymn to its darkest conventions.
A reissue can be found here

It'll All Be Over !!

Sometimes, the worse the cover art...the greater the music.
Such is the result, here. I've read via Numero Group that much of the
underground Gospel covers were a result of using (and reusing)
affordable clip art made available by only a handful of companies;
then, simply adding the needed text, often haphazardly.
I've been on quite a kick for these types of albums
as of late, so expect many more.
