New VariousPop A La Catalana – Jazz, Bossa & Groovy Sounds From Catalunya 1963 to 1971 ... CD
Vadim (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully offbeat strain of European pop from the 60s – rare recordings from the Catalonian area, that weird space in Spain that's also linked to southern France and the Mediterranean islands as well! There's a really playful feel to most of these numbers – and although many cuts are remakes of big Anglo hits, they've been re-fitted with new language, and some plenty cool arrangements that often make the music sound even groovier than in the original versions! In terms of spirit, we'd definitely compare a lot of this work to the best mid 60s pop coming from Paris – the groovy goodies of the "yeh yeh" generation – although in the end, the music's also very much it's own thing as well. Titles include "Cap A Futbol" by Guillermina Motta, "Yeh Yeh" by Tony, "Es Una Dona" by Nuri, "Febre" by Guillem D'Efak, "El Meu Trastet" by Santi Sans, "Soc Molt Poca Cosa" by Jacinta, "Amor" by Jordi Teijon, "Desafinat" by Grau Carol, and "El Cinemascop" by Llorenc Torres.

New VariousRoutine Jazz Volume 11 Selected By Kei Kobayashi ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This series just keeps on getting better and better as the volumes add up – and this time around, the focus is on jazzy grooves from the mighty P-Vine catalog – a handful of classics reissued by the label, mixed with some equally great contemporary numbers from the past few years! There's a definite focus on modal jazz and hardbop here – and the older numbers do a great job of setting a high standard for the newer groups – who represent some of the best acts going on the contemporary club jazz underground! As usual, Kei Kobayashi throws in a few of his own Routine Jazz tracks – and the package features a total of 19 tracks that include "Meaning Of Love" by Karin Krog, "African Mailman" by Rhythmagic Quintet, "Who Will Buy" by Sheila Landis, "Jeepers Creepers" by Romano Mussolini, "Everything Must Change" by Cecilia Stalin, "Down In The Village" by Routine Jazz Quartet, "Tonight The Night (Quasimode rmx)" by Marcus Enochson, "Strings Of Life" by Christian Prommer's Drumlesson, "Macedonia" by Third Eye, and "Menino Das Laranjas" by LTC.
