Aaliyah – Aaliyah (Gatefold LP Jacket)

Originally released in 2001 by Blackground Records, the album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Mitchell been a sideman on Blue Note sessions led by Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Smith, Jackie McLean and appeared on numerous classics as a member of the Horace Silver Quintet before he began recording his own Blue Note leader albums. For his 1965 date Down With It!

The band comes flying out of the gate on the boogaloo grooved opener “Hi-Heel Sneakers” with other highlights of the set including the high-spirited “March On Selma” and the gorgeous ballad “Alone, Alone, Alone.”

J Mascis – What Do We Do Now (Clear Purple Colored Vinyl)

What Do We Do Now is the fifth solo studio LP recorded by J Mascis since 1996. Using his own Bisquiteen Studio in the waning days of the pandemic, J started working on writing a series of tunes on acoustic with a different dynamic than the stuff he creates for Dino. “When I’m writing for the band,” he says, “I’m always trying to think of doing things Lou and Murph would fit into. Usually, I try to do the solo stuff more simply so I can play it by myself, but I really wanted to add the drums. Once that started, everything else just fell into place. So it ended up sounding a lot more like a band record.” Western Mass local Ken Mauri (of the B52s) plays piano on several tracks, while Toronto musician Matthew “Doc” Dunn’s steel guitar manages to both widen and soften the musical edges of the music, giving it a full classicist profile. What Do We Do Now is the finest set of solo tunes J has yet penned, and the way they’re presented is just about perfect.
