    Parker Millsap

    You can't get much more small-town America than growing up in an Oklahoma burg with a population of less than 6,000. But it's to singer/songwriter Parker Millsap's credit that he doesn't let that, or his upbringing in a Pentecostal household, get in the way of writing detailed, personality-driven story songs; ones that tell larger truths of the human condition without coming off as preachy or disparaging. That, combined with the 20 year old's weathered vocals and knack for combining folk, blues and country into melodies that feel lived in yet not familiar, makes this an early contender for one of the most notable debuts from a new artist this year.


    It's that diversity which lets him appeal to a variety of audiences, opening concerts for acts as varied as Jimmy Lafave, Jimmie Vaughan and the Old Crow Medicine Show. His approach is sometimes brooding yet never sterile. Tales of a twisted religious killer ("Old Time Religion"), the loser looking for his future in a lottery ticket ("Yosemite") and the man ready to take his wife and leave his small town for good ("Disappear") are relatable since the personalities are probably not far removed from ones we have encountered, or at least read about.


    Everything is written in a first person narrative as if we are living their thoughts and providing a window into these protagonist's souls. It's particularly effective with the Okie leaving for a better political and physical environment on the Delta blues slide guitar and harmonica driven "Land of the Red Man." The slow blues of "Forgive Me" inserts us inside the mind of a self-confessed sinner who understands his darkest impulses prevent him from interacting with normal people. Horns provide mournful accompaniment making the song a cousin to Randy Newman's "Guilty," impressive company, especially for someone just in his twenties.


    Like the best of his peers, Millsap lets his music and lyrics do the talking, keeping the production sparse, not stark, and creating a terrific, even audacious first effort. Millsap's subtle style allows the listener to discover the emotional vortex of his often confused characters, helping us identify with their motives without casting judgment.

    - Hal Horowitz (American Songwriter)

    Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac

    First Ever Collection Of Parker's Classic Singles


    Pressed On Yellow Vinyl


    Ru-Jac Records, one of the nation's first African-American owned record labels, was formed in Baltimore in the early 1960s by Rufus Mitchell, who booked East Coast entertainment venues including Carr's Beach, a segregated summer resort near Annapolis. Ru-Jac was active into the 1970s and featured R&B, soul, funk, jazz and even rock acts. The most frequently recorded Ru-Jac artist was Winfield Parker.


    Parker cut 17 recordings for Ru-Jac, the 45s of which have fetched top dollar on the collectors market, as people have hungered for this vintage sound. When Omnivore Recordings acquired Ru-Jac in 2015, even more recordings were discovered. The original singles, along with six previously unissued tracks, are finally available as Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac. Omnivore Recordings will release the collection March 25, 2016, on CD and digital. The LP will be available June 10, first limited-edition pressing on orange vinyl.


    From "My Love" to "I Love You Just The Same" to the collection's title track, "Mr. Clean," this compilation presents Parker at his most soulful, along with alternate takes, demos, backing tracks and songs unheard since they were first laid to tape over five decades ago. With mastering and restoration from Grammy® Award-winner Michael Graves, they sound better than ever.


    In 2013, the Global Entertainment Media Association honored Winfield with a Golden Mic Honor, alongside contemporaries like Gamble & Huff, the Three Degrees, Barbara Mason, and others. He is celebrating 58 years in the music business in 2016, and the material on Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac showcases the root of that legendary career, paving the way for a new generation of appreciation, re-examination, and soul.


    The Winfield Parker release is the first to be realized out of Omnivore's acquisition of Ru-Jac Records and its publishing assets. Omnivore Recordings' Cheryl Pawelski says, "Omnivore is so pleased to have acquired Ru-Jac Records and its accompanying publishing entities, Diddy Bop and Ru-Jac. Authentic East Coast '60s soul is impossible to resist, and we're looking forward to the first release, Winfield Parker's Mr. Clean: Winfield Parker At Ru-Jac with more to follow. By the end of the year we're hoping to have at least one additional artist collection available, as well as a label overview. The Ru-Jac story centers around its founder, Rufus Mitchell, a promoter of live shows in the Baltimore area, including one of the first African American-controlled beaches, Carr's Beach. The 45s that spun out of Ru-Jac offer a tantalizing, never-before told, audio history of a time and place that we can't wait for everyone to hear."

    Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker


    First Time Available On Wide Release Vinyl


    Pristinely Restored 1980 Live Recording


    6 Of The Greatest Jazz Legends In Their Prime


    180 Gram Audiophile 2LP Vinyl With Gatefold


    On a cold November evening in 1980, 3000 jazz fans filled the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier Hall of Place des Arts
    in Montreal, Quebec to attend what promised to be, a swinging evening featuring six of the biggest names
    in bebop. Billed The Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker, and under the direction of
    Dizzy Gillespie - one of the best jazz trumpeters of all time - the event featured legendary performers:
    Hank Jones - piano, Ray Brown - bass, Milt Jackson - vibes, Philly Joe Jones - drums and James Moody
    on tenor sax and flute. Local club owner Roue Doudou Boicel, who produced the concert, had the foresight
    to record the concert in its entirety. A limited quantity bootleg LP of the concert soon appeared and then
    disappeared from the marketplace, those tapes lay dormant for over 30 years.


    This historic recording opens with rapturous applause that sets the tone with Dizzy's own "Blues 'N' Boogie.
    "Also featured are several classic standards - some more well known then others - including "Darben The
    Redd Foxx," "Time On My Hands," "Get Happy," "The Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Stardust." All the players are
    at the top of their game and having a blast, as evidenced by the banter and repartee between songs.


    Concert of the Century, pristinely restored and remastered, features two tracks that weren't on the original
    pressing from the early '80s - Ralph Rainger's "If I Should Lose You" and an incredible eight minute bass
    solo by Ray Brown.

    Bird At St. Nick's

    Charlie Parker attracted young musicians like a magnet. Among them was trombonist Jimmy Knepper, who, at a time when tape recording was a brand-new thing, captured Bird in flight one winter night in Manhattan. He soared, and when Charles Mingus heard the music years later, he issued it as the first release on his new Jazz Workshop label. Since then, many private recordings of Parker have been made public. This was one of the first, and remains one of the best, a precious musical document.

    Good Things Don't Happen Every Day

    Like a lot of jazz organists, McGriff had strong roots in the blues. Here he teams up with Junior Parker to lay down some of those roots, mixed in with a good dose of soul. Along the way they find themselves in the funk, a later outgrowth of the blues and soul. Drownin On Dry Land brings the funk accentuated with some great drum playing by an uncredited musician on the liner notes. McGriff and Parker give a nice contemporary, soul sound to the classic Fats Domino tune Ain't That A Shame. It Ain't What'cha Got begins with a catchy organ riff by McGriff before going into a little vamp. Workin has a part in the middle that was looped up by Del for Pissin On Your Steps.--soulstrut.com

    During their original alliance, Graham Parker and The Rumour never released a live album that accurately represented how powerful they sounded in concert. These double LP releases however, stand as essential documents of the early stages of the partnership between this supremely smart songwriter and a crack band. This is the second installment of two, taken from The bands blistering performances live on the German television show Rockpalast in 1978 and 1980.

    There's A Blue Bird In My Heart

    Anders Parker has a recording of new music coming out June 17th, and it is called There's a Blue Bird in my Heart. Released by his new record label, Recorded & Freed, the album of nine distinct tracks was created in Burlington, Vermont. The initial tracks were all cut live with his band Cloud Badge, before the process relocated to Athens, Georgia for additional recording and mixing by the legendary David Barbe (Bob Mould, Drive-by Truckers, Son Volt), and guest appearances by local Athens talent. This is the first release of new Parker material in over four years. A.P. did not sit idle during the interim, having recorded and released more than twenty-three tracks with the Woody Guthrie-inspired New Multitudes supergroup that also included Jay Farrar, Jim James, and Will Johnson. He also released a beautifully lyrical album of music with longtime ally Kendall Meade called Wild Chorus under the band name, Anders & Kendall. All of these efforts add to the continued entries in the ledger of his life's body of work that include his work with Space Needle, Gob Iron (also with Jay Farrar), five albums recorded under the anonymity of the name Varnaline, five albums recorded under his name, and a live "field recording" from a Portland, Oregon tour stop in 2005.

    New Multitudes

    New Multitudes is an intimate interpretation of American icon and musical legend Woody Guthries previously unrecorded lyrics from a dream team of Americana torchbearers: Jay Farrar (Son Volt), Will Johnson (Centro-matic), Anders Parker (Varnaline) and Jim James (My Morning Jacket). What makes this album such a rarity in todays music world is the allowance of the songs infectious simplicity to stand alone in all their glory. In doing so, Farrar, Johnson, Parker and James, pay the greatest compliment to Woody Guthrie and the collaborative spirit he so greatly embodied. This is an album which seamlessly converges the sepia-toned essence of the time honored past with the risks needed to forge the future.


    Under the invitation of Nora Guthrie, Woody's daughter, to tour the Guthrie archives, each of the four songwriters were offered the chance to plumb and mine the plethora of notebooks, scratch pads, napkins, etc. for anything that might inspire them to lend their voices and give the words new life.


    These guys worked on an amazing group of lyrics says Nora. Much of it was culled from Woody's times in L.A. Lyric wise, it's a part of the story that is still mostly unknown. From Woody's experiences on L.A.'s skid row to his later years in Topanga Canyon, they are uniquely intimate, and relate two distinctly emotional periods in his life.


    Musically, it is the sense of collaboration that makes New Multitudes not just another trite and traditional acoustic regurgitation of back porch blues. From the ragged jangle of its opening track, Hoping Machine, the loping lilt of Fly High, the floorboard stomp of No Fear, to the lush warmth and sudden sonic gut punch of My Revolutionary Mind, the cohorts deliver a lesson in discovering a song's sweet spot time and time again. It's the function and preparedness of each artist's dogged work ethic gleaned the old-fashion way; veracious songs, road weary odometers and sweat stained live shows, all attributes of the man they are honoring.

    Bundled With A 22"x 22" Poster Of The Cover Art


    Maceo Parker was one of the most revered and loved members of James Brown's famed J.B.'s band from the late '60s to the mid-1970s. Alongside his instantly-recognizable alto saxophone solos, he occasionally performed as comedian before James Brown shows, in addition to playing MC.


    He was a true renaissance man. And while other members of The Godfather of Soul's inner circle - most notably trombonist Fred Wesley - had solo albums at the advent of Brown's People Records, Maceo had to wait his turn for a couple years. By the time 1974 rolled around, this talented musician and personality could not be denied, and he burst onto the scene as a group leader with one of the most impressive albums in the People catalog: the simply titled, but deeply felt, Us.


    Maceo's group (occasionally called The Macks) and Fred Wesley's J.B.'s were essentially the same unit - including guitarists Jimmy Nolen and Hearlon "Cheese" Martin, drummer John "Jabo" Starks, saxophonist St. Clair Pinckney and of course Fred Wesley on trombone. Unsurprisingly, the material here is never-endingly funky. But as shown in the song selection (presumably by Parker, with heavy-handy assistance from the
    Godfather himself), there are as many ballads and soul groovers as there are straight-up funk workouts.
    Cases in point include the mellow, Gamble & Huff-penned "Drowning In The Sea Of Love" (with organ, most likely played by James Brown, slithering in the background) and the syrupy "Show and Tell." The album's closer is also on the slower side, going very deep and striking a chord, as Maceo and Brown talk about conditions in the Black American landscape of the day over the course of 10-plus minutes.


    And there is, of course, plenty of diesel funk here as well: singles like "Soul Power 74" and "Parrty" are downright nasty grooves, known well by James Brown fans old and new. "Soul Power 74" additionally features very early proto-sampling, with a baby's cry as well as Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have Been To The Mountain Top" speech. And Maceo's take on the J.B.'s classic "Doing It To Death" is a unique version, more muted and of course featuring Maceo's gorgeous horn front and center.


    Appearing at the apex of both James Brown's and People Records' power, Us is a treasured jewel in the J.B. catalog, and rightfully so. This 150 gram vinyl LP comes in a Stoughton Jacket, housed in a custom People Records poly bag, and includes 24" x 24" poster.

    Bright Light In Winter (Awaiting Repress)

    Bright Light In Winter is the long-awaited third album by Chicago guitarist Jeff Parker. With his associates Chris Lopes (bass) and Chad Taylor (drums), this trio continues their examination of our post-modern musical universe via tuneful compositions by all three members, and an elastic, dynamic approach to improvisation and group interplay - rooted in our familiar musical traditions, but also searching for the new ones. Recorded and mixed by Bundy K. Brown.
