Jimmy KnepperSwinging Introduction To Jimmy Knepper ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Near Mint- .... $11.99
Great work from one of the most compelling trombonists of the 50s! Jimmy Knepper is probably best known for his excellent work on some of Charles Mingus' best records – but this set from 1957 shows that Knepper was also an extremely capable (if under-recorded) leader in his own right! The album is one of the rarest Bethlehem sides – and it features Knepper leading a crack group that includes Bill Evans, Gene Quill and drummer Dannie Richmond, making a rare non-Mingus appearance here! The tracks are shortish, and a number of them are standards, but the group swings nicely, and Knepper's tone is nice and edgey on most tracks. Titles include "Avid Admirer", "Close As Pages In A Book", "Ogling Ogre", and "Idol Of The Flies". LP, Vinyl record album

AirtoFingers (remastered edition) ... CD
CTI, 1973. New Copy Gatefold .... $10.99 11.98
One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of California soul! Flora Purim joins in here on both vocals and percussion – and the rest of the group features Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards and harmonica, Jorgte Fattoruso on drums, and David Amaro on both electric and acoustic guitars – shifting nicely between both instruments in a way that further underscores the blended vibe of the record! Most of these tracks are Airto classics – like "Tombo in 7/4", "San Francisco River", "Romance Of Death", "Ringers", and "Wind Chant" – and the record has a very sweet CTI production style, but is still rough enough around the edges to keep things nice and real!

Geri AllenGrand River Crossings – Motown & Motor City Inspirations ... CD
Motema, 2013. New Copy .... $11.99 14.98
Way way more than you might guess from an album with Motown in the title – and instead, a set that may well be one of the best we've heard from Geri Allen in years! Yes, the tracks are mostly numbers from the classic years of the famous soul label – but the presentation is quite different – mostly solo piano, with Geri stretching out in these fluid, spiritual ways that go far past any familiar melodies, and which really make the songs deeply her own. Plus, the set also features some tremendous guest work from Marcus Belgrave on trumpet on three tracks – stretching out with the kind of righteous, expressive tones that have made us love him from the days of Tribe Records onwards. David McMurray also guests on alto on one track – but the bulk of album is solo piano from Allen, on titles that include "The Smart Set", "Space Odyssey", "Inner City Blues", "Stoned Love", "Itching In My Heart", "Tears Of A Clown", "That Girl", and "Grand River Crossings".

David AmramYoung Savages – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1961. New Copy .... $19.99
An overlooked jazz soundtrack from early 60s Hollywood – and some amazing early work from composer David Amram! Amram's always had an ear for higher-concept versions of jazz – but his approach here is a wonderful blend of modernity and spontaneity – just right for the sort of energy of the film, and it's JD "young savages" theme – and played by a very hip group of musicians that include Harold Land or George Barrow on tenor, Teo Macero on alto, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Amram himself on piano – playing in this very cool Monk-like style. Some cuts are more jazz combo modes – like the long jazz numbers, including "Harold's Way Out", "True Blue", and "Las Muchacas Delicadas". Other cuts have more of a soundtrack approach, but still with great jazz elements – and these include "Rooftops", "Help", "Subway Sounds", and "Theme From The Young Savages". CD

As OneIn With Their Arps & Moogs & Jazz & Things ... CD
Clear (UK), 1997. Used .... $13.99
Groundbreaking work from Kirk DeGiorgio – very jazzy, keyboard-heavy tracks recorded back in the mid 90s – some of the first truly classic work of this nature to come from the UK! Back at a time when so many folks were cutting colder, stiffer versions of 70s keyboard classics, Kirk was one of the few who could really match the real thing – working with a keen love and deep knowledge of the experiments of Herbie Hancock and others, but taking the music to a whole new level with a deeper London vibe. This set brings together some key tracks recorded by Kirk in 1996 and 1997. Titles include "Queen Constance", "The Kiss", "Electric Hymn", "Chiaro", "Last Of The Almoravids", and "Sphere Of The Fixed Stars". CD

Atlantic StarrRadiant ... LP
A&M, 1980. Near Mint- .... $7.99
Radiant grooves indeed from Atlantic Starr – a group who really make things sparkle throughout this magnificent set! The group are at the height of their powers here – skirting a perfect line between mainstream soul and upbeat club – never falling too much into one style or the other, and never sounding as commercial as some of their contemporaries! There's a relaxed, easygoing feel to most of the grooves on the set – never too much fake bass, nor too many electric touches – and the vocals shift a bit from track to track, taking good advantage of singers Wayne Lewis, David Lewis, and Sharon Bryant. Titles include "When Love Calls", "Think About That", "Mystery Girl", "Under Pressure", "My Turn Now", "Does It Matter", and "Send For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Patti AustinEnd Of A Rainbow – The CTI Masters ... CD
CTI/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s. New Copy .... $13.99
CTI Masters, and then some – a collection that features one full album from Patti Austin, plus lots of bonus tracks too! The first 10 tracks on the album comprise the classic End Of The Rainbow debut for CTI – wonderfully warm soul from the great Patti Austin – a key artist in the late 70s, and one who really helped push the music forward with a new sense of sophistication! Patti's got a strongly jazzy vibe here – and works with David Matthews arrangements that are really well put-together – less funky than some of Dave's other work of the period, and filled with these mellow moments that really let Austin's energy flow! The overall feel is a bit like some of Jean Carn's work on Philly International – hip, sophisticated, and filled with plenty of jazz touches – although with an even stronger approach to ballads – and titles include the classic "This Side Of Heaven", plus "More Today Than Yesterday", "Say You Love Me", "In My Life", "Give It Time", and "What's At The End Of A Rainbow". CD then goes onto include 8 more tracks from other CTI albums from Patti – equally great numbers that include "Havana Candy", "I Just Want To Know", "We're In Love", "I Need Somebody", "Lost In The Stars", "Body Language", "Another Nail For My Heart", and "I Want You Tonight".

David AxelrodAuction ... LP
Decca, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $9.99
One of David Axelrod's oddest records, but still a darn great one! The whole album is sort of a concept album about slavery (hence the title "The Auction"), and it has some spiritual political vocals on a number of tracks – but underneath is the usual great funky instrumentation of David Axelrod, with lots of nice deep grooves that kick the otherwise snoozy lyrics into another level. The whole thing's got a feel that's sort of like the 24 Carat Black record, with a deep soulful groove. Titles include "The Auction", "Oh! Freedom", "The Debt", "Freedom", "Sympathy", "Leading Citizen", and "Be Proud, My Race!". LP, Vinyl record album

David AxelrodSong Of Innocence (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Capitol, 1968. New Copy (reissue).... $11.99
A masterpiece! This is one of David Axelrod's most perfectly realized albums – and it's a brilliant batch of baroque arrangements, jazzy solos, and slightly subtle funky bits! The album contains the much-sampled song "Holy Thursday", but the whole thing has a very similar feel to that track – with lots of sinister strings, rumbling drums, and archly-modern bits of instrumentation. A real killer – and with the cuts "The Smile", "A Dream", "Song Of Innocence", and "The Mental Traveller". William Blake never sounded so funky! LP, Vinyl record album

David AxelrodSongs Of Experience ... LP
Capitol, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $9.99
One of the greatest albums ever by studio genius David Axelrod! The album's one of Axelrod's first on his own – cut for Capitol Records at a time when he was working with some of the label's biggest selling soul acts – like Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls – turning their already-successful sounds into super-hit material by adding some nice funky touches, and excellent baroque production. This album lets Axelrod fully explore his talents for larger studio arrangements, and complex yet soulful instrumentation. The record is subtitled "an anthology of awareness after birth, based on the 18th century poems of William Blake" – and it features incredible arrangements conducted by Don Randi, played by a host of excellent LA jazz and studio players. The overall sound is spacey and dark, with nice touches of funk, and plenty of cool instrumental passages that have been sampled over the years by hip hoppers and other producers. Titles include "London", "The Fly", "The Human Abstract", "A Divine Image", and "The Sick Rose". Reissued with the original gatefold cover, and everything! LP, Vinyl record album

David Axelrod & OthersAxelrod Chronicles ... CD
Fantasy, Early 70s. New Copy .... $3.99 14.98
It's great to see that David Axelrod's finally getting his due – and this reissue of material from Fantasy is one of the first reissues of his work in the US! Most cuts here are much more jazz-based than Axelrod's higher-concept material under his own name for Capitol in the late 60s – and the music represents Axe's key move to Fantasy after bigger label fame – a move that he made with Cannonball Adderley, who also figures in on some of these tracks. The CD features 8 tracks from Axelrod's Full Axe album – a tasty bit of funky fusion that's one of his best jazz-oriented releases – plus a sampling of tracks from other albums he produced and/or arranged for Fantasy. Titles from Full Axe include "My Family", "Mucho Chupar", "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", and "Everything Counts" – and other tracks include "Cantaro" and "Solitario" by Gene Ammons, "Bach" and "Sierra Morena" by Hampton Hawes, "Quit It" by Nat Adderley, "Goodbye So Long" by Funk Inc, and "Stayin Place" from the Big Man 2LP set.

Andrea Belfi is on drums, percussion and electronics, David Grubbs is on electric guitar, keys and some vocals, and Stefano Pilia plays acoustic and electric guitar. We've been fans of David Grubbs for decades, from the more dissonant underground rock, to the more textural instrumental material, and he's found excellent partners in Italian players Belfi and Pilia.

The work's a mixture of clubby soul and funky fusion – done in the leaner style of the best AVI sides handled by Rinder & Lewis – and featuring some great moments in both the soulful fusion vein and the sweeter disco one!

Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

EMI, 1983. Near Mint- .... $8.99
A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) LP, Vinyl record album

Ryko, 1977. Used .... $9.99
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". Features great bonus tracks – "Some Are", "Sound & Vision (rmx)", and "All Saints". CD

Columbia, 2013. New Copy 2 CDs & DVD .... $24.99
A reworked version of David Bowie's Next Day album – presented here with a full bonus CD of extra material, and a DVD too! The style's darker and edgier than we've heard Bowie in years – kind of in "Joe The Lion" territory at times – given the fuzzy use of guitar, and raspy touches on the vocals and other instrumentation – almost as if the whole thing's got the same sort of back to basics approach that David found during his years in Berlin. Yet overall, there's more sweet moments too – some surprisingly warm tunes that, while not like contemporary pop hits, may well help remind the world that the Bowie star can still shine brightly in the right setting. Titles include "Dirty Boys", "The Next Day", "If You Can See Me", "Boss Of Me", "Dancing Out In Space", "Love Is Lost", and "Valentines Day". Bonus CD features the tracks "Plan", "Atomica", "I'd Rather Be High (Venetian mix)", "I'll Take You There", "Born In A UFO", "So She", and "The Informer".

New David BowieSpace Oddity (40th Anniversary 2CD edition) ... CD
EMI, 1969. Used 2CDs .... $15.99
An amazing departure for David Bowie – hardly the kind of record you would expect from his oboe-filled tunes of a few years before – and really the start of the groundbreaking, earthshaking, reinventionist era of his genius! There's a spacious, soaring quality to Space Oddity that's every bit the kind of magical music you might hope for in a set recorded at the close of the 60s – a shift into new modes, new sounds that seem to suck up all the best influences in rock from the previous few years, but fuse it into a new cosmic vision for the next decade. And while others might stumble on cliche with the weight of such a task, Bowie pulls it off brilliantly – mixing his fuzzier feelings with some of his more personal leanings – and showcasing a newly deep sense of songwriting here that's really amazing. Some tunes have the sensitivity of work on Hunky Dory, while others burn with the fire of Man Who Sold The World – all in a balance that never sounds schizophrenic at all. Titles include"Space Oddity", "Memory Of A Free Festival", "God Knows I'm Good", "Cygnet Committee", and "Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dazed". This 40th Anniversary edition (and wow, 40 freakin' years!!!) includes a bonus disc with 15 tracks, made up of (mostly) previously unreleased demos, BBC sessions, a- and b-side singles and more! Includes demo versiuons of "Space Oddity" and "An Occasional Dream", "Ragazzo Solo, Ragazza Sola" (full length stereo version), "Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed" (BBC Radio session DLT Show", "The Prettiest Star" (stereo version) and more.

A tremendous live set cut during the height of David Bowie's years in Berlin – and the kind of performance that showed that his more experimental work from this time could be every bit as appealing as the classics! The first half of the set features some amazing numbers from the Heroes and Low years – presented here with some darker orchestrations that sound really wonderful, and which slightly recast the styles of the tunes on the albums. The second half mixes in some older classics with a few surprising bits – making for the kind of "star appeal" that must have been welcome to more mainstream Bowie fans during these more obscure years. 17 tracks in all – including "Beauty & The Beast", "Breaking Glass", "Speed Of Life", "What In The World", "Heroes", "Warszawa", "Soul Love", "Star", "Art Decade","Fame", "TVC 15", and "Ziggy Stardust".

Virgin/Ryko, 1975. Used .... $7.99
A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album! Bowie was at the height of his Ziggy Stardust fame when this one was recorded – a drastic left-turn in styles, forged during a point in his American tour when he could take a break, head to Philly, plug in at the Sigma Sound Studios, and come up with some fantastic little soul tunes, thanks to help from Luther Vandross! The album sparkles with the best sound of Luther's early work – and you'll hear more than a bit of Luther's work on his own, and his tunes with Gregg Diamond on the set. Features the sublime tracks "Win", "Fascination", "Right", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "Can You Hear Me" – as well as the hits "Young Americans" and "Fame". CD

Dreamtime, 2004. New Copy .... $6.99
A real departure for saxophonist David Boykin – an album of solo material, performed on soprano sax and Bb Clarinet – in a style that recalls the most experimental work of Roscoe Mitchell, and which also has ties to the solo recordings of Evan Parker and Steve Lacy! Boykin's really concerned with sound in space on the album – and blows with a freely creative vibe that surpasses even his best earlier work. The tunes start out slow, and spare, but then unfold as the album goes on – and demonstrate some incredible tone and control that we never expected from Boykin! Originally part of a live performance with a dancer, but more than compelling enough on its own – and with tracks that include "Transfixed", "And Amazement", "Of Wonder", "With A Gaze", and "Upon The Beloved".

Spare improvisations from Chicago saxophonist David Boykin – recorded as a duet with butoh artist Nicole Legette, who also seems to be vocalizing a bit on the record! The album's easily one of the most challenging that Boykin's ever given us – quite open, and very expressive – sometimes concerned strongly with low tones on the saxophone, while at others screaming out with almost voice-like qualities. There's a feel here that's almost like some of Roscoe Mitchell's best solo work from years back – and the 27 minute CD features 11 smaller excerpts that are all pretty wonderful! CD

The set's on a major label, but it's got a soulfully produced groove that makes it feel like some of the best soul jazz on the Muse imprint – really open and flowing, with a sound that shows that the New Jersey sound was alive and well into the 90s! Braden's on tenor, working alongside some guest tenor by David Newman – and the rest of the group features organ by either Jack McDuff or Larry Goldings – plus trumpet by Tom Harrell, guitar by Russell Malone, and some super-solid drum work by either Cecil Brooks or Winard Harper.

Braxton's reeds include alto, tenor, sopranino, and C melody sax – plus clarinet and flute as well – and other quartet members include David Rosenboom on piano, Mark Dresser on bass, and Gerry Hemingway on drums. The music is quite angular at most points – with sharp tones that are kind of a further extension of a Monk/Lacy vibe, stretched into occasional free moments as well.

Universe, 2010. New Copy .... $5.99 24.95
Not the complete history of rock and roll, but a collection of cool comics that each focus on a specific singer or group – brought together here as a very personal pastiche of views on modern music! The book is black and white, and most of the artists use a heavy pen technique that comes across well in the format – and each new entry is accompanied by a short essay on the artist involved, to situate the comic within a more historical context. Entries include "Nick Cave" by Laure Del Pino, "Ramones" by Sebastien Lumineau, "Led Zeppelin" by Killoffer, "The Kinks" by Luc Cornillon, "David Bowie" by Nine Antico, "Sex Pistols" by Jean Christophe Menu, "Captain Beefheart" by Jean Michel Thiriet, and Nick Drake" by Vincent Vanoli. 240 pages, softcover, black and white.

Rusty BryantUntil It's Time For You To Go ... LP
Prestige, 1974. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A richly soulful album from tenor giant Rusty Bryant – and a set that mixes his older Prestige Records mode with the larger electric styles of the CTI generation! The group's bigger than on most of Bryant's other records of the time – some larger charts arranged by Horace Ott, who had a lot of background in soul and R&B, and brings all of those elements to work nicely on the grooves. Rusty's still out front soloing nicely – in a manner that recalls Stanley Turrentine on CTI or Hank Crawford on Kudu – and other players include Ott himself on keyboards, Wilbur Baxcomb on bass, George Devens on vibes, David Spinozza on guitar, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Funky cuts include "The Hump Bump" and "Ga Gang Gang Goong" – and other titles include "Draggin The Line", "Red Eye Special", and "Troubles". LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry ButlerIt All Comes Out In My Song ... LP
Motown, 1977. Sealed .... $2.99
Proof that Jerry Butler could always be great, no matter what the setting – and that even an overlooked album like this can still be pretty darn great! The album's got less of a focus than Jerry's earlier Mercury work or later sides for Philly – but it's also got a subtle and sometimes spare approach that really lets Jerry's voice come to the forefront of the set – dominating the whole thing in a great batch of mellow tunes that really show the shift from younger Iceman to confident adult soul that Jerry worked in the 70s. Butler produced, and arrangements are by Paul David Wilson and James Mack. Titles include "Just You & Me Forever", "Everything's Cool", "Living My Life Just For You", "I'm Music I'm Your Friend", "How It Used To Feel", "It All Comes Out In My Song", and "I've Got To Make It On My Own".

New Donald ByrdCaricatures ... LP
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good .... $3.99
Donald Byrd's last Blue Note album with fusion genius Larry Mizell – and a doozy! The record builds off the style of previous Byrd/Mizell outings – like Places & Spaces, Street Lady, and Black Byrd – mixing together a similar blend of heavy rhythms, keyboards, and sweet funky trumpet licks from Donald. The sound here's a bit tighter than on some of the previous records – showing Mizell as an emerging soul genius, soon to click big on some very important R&B outings of the late 70s. Donald's working with a great group – and gets help from the likes of Patrice Rushen, Gary Bartz, David T. Walker, and Alphonze Mouzon – all of whom fit in with the funky program to really kick out some nice grooves! Titles include "Return Of the King", "Dance Band", "Wild Life", "Science Funktion", and "Onward Til Morning". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Sweet and funky organ work from the great Henry Cain – a little known player who recorded on some excellent sides for Capitol in the 60s, including some of the albums by Howard Roberts! This set is Cain's one full album for the label – and it's a tight and jumpy set of instrumentals, produced by David Axelrod with a nice sharp edge. Arrangements are by HB Barnum and Oliver Nelson – both of whom really hit the right sound for Cain's clean approach to the Hammond keys – setting up enough space for him to groove freely, yet still keeping the band tightly reigned into the rhythm of the cuts. Titles include "Horror Scope", "Shake A Lady", "Dead End Street", "Why", "Sunny", "The Way I Feel", and "Critic's Choice". LP, Vinyl record album

For years, this was the only album ever recorded by this obscure blind female pianist – until she was rediscovered and rerecorded a few years ago. We still like this one best, though, because it's got all these great original compositions that have a nice deep soul jazz feel to them, and because there's some great obscure players on here like Frank Perowsky, Vincent McEwen, and a young Robin Kenyatta, who comes off sounding especially nice on alto, adding in some edgey tones that push the session to a whole new level.

George Carlin at the height of his powers – back when he still had a good batch of hair on the top of his head, and worked in that uptightly rambling style that was a direct heir to the innovations of Lenny Bruce in the 50s! As with Bruce, Carlin manages to illuminate topics both mundane and fringe – running through bits here that are less "routines" than reflections – colored by hip insights throughout. Titles include "Death & Dying", "On The Road", "Suicide & Reincarnation", "The Funeral", "Kids Are Too Small", and "Head Lines". LP, Vinyl record album

Everything old is new again – and a key entry in the disco trend of updating older swing tunes for the 70s! Charlie does it better than most here – thanks to tight instrumentation from players like David Spinozza on guitar and Richard Tee on piano – and an overall groove that also has a fair bit of horns in the mix too! Vocals are by Luther Vandross, Cissy Houston, and Jocelyn Brown – and rhythms are well thought-out too – not just easy disco, but changed up enough for each track, and almost a bit funky in their swing at times. Titles include "Sing Sing Sing", "Temptation", "Star Dust", "In The Mood", "Opus One", and "Skyliner". LP, Vinyl record album

A classic from Merry Clayton – and a record whose title follows from her big fame of singing on the original version of "Gimme Shelter" by the Rolling Stones! The sound here is a lot more soul-based, as you'd guess – arranged beautifully by Gene Page, with a really righteous feel that's perfect for Merry's deeply soulful vocal approach – and produced to perfection by Lou Adler, with some surprising help from Curtis Amy – one of our favorite saxophonists ever. Music is by a hip cast of top-shelf talents from the coast – including Billy Preston on organ, Joe Sample on piano, David T Walker on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums – all nice and tight, but totally right in the pocket with their grooves. Titles include Merry's classic version of "Gimme Shelter", plus "Tell All The People", "I've Got Life", "Here Come Those Heartaches Again", and "Good Girls". CD

Flying Nun/Captured Tracks, 1990. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $26.99
The incredible dawn of the 90s album from The Clean – the hugely influential New Zealand post punk group that made some the most timeless indie guitar pop in decades! Stunningly, 1990's Vehicle is their first proper album – the group having earlier cemented their reputation on singles and a couple of compilations. It's astoundingly great! David Kilgour is rightly hailed these days as one of the most vital creative figures in indie pop the world over, but something about the chiming, just dissonant enough guitars and pop-leaning vocals of his work in The Clean – with fellow songwriter Brydie Scott and David's brother Hamish on drums – is really hard to top. Includes "Drawing To A Whole", "I Wait Around", "Bye Bye", "The Blue", "Dunes", "Home", "Diamond Shine", "Getting To You", "Big Soft Punch", "Big Cat", "I Can See" and "Gem". Also includes the bonus 12" EP In-A-Live – recorded during their late 80s reunion tour – with "Fish", "Anything Could Happen", "Flowers", "Paint That Think Somewhere Else" and "Whatever I Do Is Right".

Ornette ColemanChappaqua Suite ... CD
Columbia/Five Four (UK), 1966. New Copy .... $13.99
One of Ornette Coleman's most groundbreaking albums – a set that takes his best free jazz energy of the 60s, and expands it out into the space of a longer suite – all originally designed as a film soundtrack, then never used in the movie at all! Yet even without the film placement, the album's one of Coleman's greatest – a unique blend of his best small combo 60s energy with some larger orchestrations that really go way out – mixing tones and modes from the soloists against a larger backdrop of woodwinds and strings. The result is mindblowing – very open-ended and freewheeling, yet filled with soul too – thanks to great alto and trumpet from Ornette, and raw tenor from Pharoah Sanders – working in the core quartet with David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums. The set features one long double-length piece – four sides' worth of amazing music! CD

Blue Note, 1965. Very Good .... $8.99
Important mid 60s work from Ornette – and one of the few recordings of this format to see larger release at the time! The set captures Ornette in a much freer style than heard on his Atlantic recordings from a few years before – paying alto, violin, and trumpet, in a trio with David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums. Tracks are long and unbridled – with less of the rhythmic changes that you'd hear in work by the classic quartet, and more of a full-on fierce soloing mode. Titles include "Snowflakes & Sunshine", "Morning Song", "The Riddle", and "Antiques". LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant large ensemble work from Ornette Coleman – ambitious material recorded with full orchestra, in a haunting sound that's light years from any of his smaller group recordings of the 60s and 70s! There's an incredible feel to the strings used here – played by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Measham – all tied up and dark, with swirling sounds that run up beautifully from the bottom, then take off to the skies promised in the title – opening the door for Ornette to come in and solo freely over the top – in a magical mix that easily makes the record a standout in his long and mighty career! Harmolodic theory is definitely a part of Coleman's conception here – but in very different ways than his quartet or quintet recordings. Tracks include "The Men Who Live In The White House", "Sunday In America", "Dreams", "Native Americans", "Silver Screen", and "The Artist In America". CD

Specialty/OJC, 1958. New Copy .... $3.99 11.98
A hip little album from Buddy Collette – one that's ostensibly based around the then-popular idea of a set of Paris-inspired tunes – but which comes off with a sound that's a lot deeper than you might expect! David Axelrod produced the set – it was one of his early projects for Specialty Records – and Buddy Collette plays alto, tenor, and flute – in a group with Frank Rosolino on trombone, Howard Roberts on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Bill Richmond or Bill Douglass on drums. Red Callender joins in on some tracks, and his deep tones mixed with Rosolino's trombone, really help offset the lighter sounds of Collette's reeds in a nice way. Titles include "Domino", "Mam'Selle", "Pigalle", "I Love Paris", "La Vie En Rose", and "Under Paris Skies". CD features 4 bonus alternate takes, too! CD

Motema, 2012. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
A great one from this all-star group – an incredibly righteous combo that's given Billy Harper one of his best chances to play in years! As with the previous album by The Cookers, the Harper influence really runs strong – not just in the use of some of his great tracks in the performance, but also in the way the tunes build and work together – that bold, powerful energy that Billy first unleashed on the world in the 70s – driven to new heights here by a lineup that also includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Craig Handy on alto sax, George Cables on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums! But key thanks should also go to trumpeter David Weiss – also in the group, and producer for the record – a great talent for getting these guys to work together so well. Titles include tunes by McBee, Cables, and Hart as well – with tracks that include "Ebony Moonbeams", "Believe For It Is True", "Free For All", "Quest", "But He Knows", "Tight Squeeze", and "Naaj".

Cool jazz funk from The Coolin' System – a group that lays out a funky backdrop, and one that actually generates plenty of heat despite the group's name! Hammond organ and Fender Rhodes, bass, drums and percussion bring the funk, along with a vamping guitar – but what we love about this record is all the measured out space that the group provides from some really sweet solos all around. It adds a late 60s-styled jazz funk vibe that's not easy to pull off, but everyone in this group can play, and they make it seem easy. Players include Mikie Martel on trumpet & flugelhorn, JD Douglas on tenor sax and flute, Pablo Ahogado on Hammond and Rhodes, David Guy on bass, James Bonomo on drums and Andy Wilmoth on percussion. AJ Eason provides guest vocals on "I Need Some Money", but for the most part it's a cool instrumentals set, and titles include "Who's Gonna Take The Weight", "Red Onion", "Sunshine Alley", "Roots", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Nubian Lady", "Smokin' At Tiffany's" and more.

Coku, 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... $8.99 16.98
Great work from Johnny Coppola – a member of America's famous first family of film, and a hell of a crooner in his own right! Johnny lives in a world where the Rat Pack never ended – and he sings here with a style we haven't heard this well since the days of Frank Sinatra at Reprise – a tremendous old school approach to masculine jazz singing – served up with a hell of a lot more personality than just about any other Sinatra copycat in recent years! Johnny's definitely his own man on the set – partly because the tunes are almost all originals, with very cool lyrics by Coppola – and music penned by Bill Cunliffe, who handled all the instrumentation for the record – at a level that really keeps things top-shelf. Make no mistake, Johnny's vocals don't have the purity of Sinatra – but he does really evoke this world of second-string male singers of the 60s – guys like Bobby Cole, Frankie Randall, David Allen, and others – all equally swinging, and able to put a sense of male personality into a tune that other singers of the type could never touch. Titles include "Night Of Our Dreams", "A Long Love Affair", "Sandra", "Time To Run Son", "I'm Through With All Of These Dreams", "I'll Sleep Alone", and "Somebody's Got To Be That Guy". CD

Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy .... $13.99
Not really a symphony, but a great album that features the soulful alto sax of Hank Crawford blowing over some rich larger backings from David Matthews – all with a sweetly funky Kudu sound! The style's a bit more polished than some of the other Kudu sessions of the time – almost a bit disco or clubby at times – as Matthews brings in a fair bit of strings and horns to the backings, and also has some female backing singers sweetening up the sound. But as usual with Kudu, the record's no cheap cash-in sort of set – and Matthews ensures that it's got a tightly-crafted groove that's almost like mainstream 70s soundtrack funk at its best moments. Keyboards are by Richard Tee and Leon Pendarvis – and titles include "Sugar Free", "I Hear A Symphony", "The Stripper", "Hang It On The Ceiling", and "Love Won't Let Me Wait". CD

One of the most soulful 70s sessions from percussionist Andrew Cyrille – working here with a great lineup that includes David S Ware on tenor and Ted Daniel on trumpet and flute! The horn players really give the record a great sense of energy and focus – more so than some of Cyrille's more percussion-oriented or sparer sets – and Ware's tone especially sounds great here, with a full depth, but none of the overblown qualities that sometimes marred his later years. Nick DiGeronimo handles bass – and although we don't really know him well, his timing and tone here also helps give the group some good energy too – focusing Cyrille into much more rhythmic territory than usual. Titles include "5-4-3-2", "Spiegelgasse 14", "My Ship", and "Metamusician's Stomp". CD

Anthony David keeps on getting better and better – to a point where a record like this really makes us say "damn, why isn't this guy one of the world's biggest soul stars?" The music is completely seductive – mellow beats, acoustic guitar, and David's raspy real soul vocals – all tied together in a set of gentle rhythms that unfold as naturally as Anthony's simply-penned lyrics. And yes, the sound is possibly a bit more mainstream than before – but in a way that only helps David hit more on the mark than before – with a groove that's still plenty righteous, but which should hopefully be opening up whole new audiences to his music. Titles include "Stop Playin", "Spittin Game", "Smoke One", "GA Peach", "Cold Turkey", "Krooked Cop", "Cheatin Man", and "Words", which features India.Arie. CD

A record that acts just like its title – as the set really helps focus the brilliance of Paulinho Da Viola into bright rays of color – showing different tones and feelings with each new tune on the set! By that, we don't mean that the album's schizophrenic – just that it's got a range that goes beyond the more familiar samba of Paulinho's roots – into territory that reaches right up there with the best of the MPB generation – and almost makes Paulinho into a genre unto himself! The arrangements have a nice sense of variety, but are never too commercial – and the samba roots are always firmly intact – on titles that include "Cisma", "Quem Sabe", "Mais Que A Lei Da Gravidade", "Cade A Razao", "Retiro", and "O Tempo Nao Apagou".

The album's sub-titled "The Hartford Suite" – and features a set of original tracks commissioned by that city, and penned by Davis with a wonderfully fluid mix of lyricism and swing – that quality he's always got in his own solo work, carried forth here by a hip sextet that features Josh Evans on trumpet and flugelhorn, Mike DiRubbo on alto, David Bryant on piano, Dezron Douglas on bass, and Eric McPherson on drums. The music is beautifully vivid right from the start – a host of fresh compositions given wonderful treatment from the group – and titles include "Twain's World", "Nato", "The Modernist", "Club 880", "Kenney's", "Park Street", and "Mode For Miantonomoh".

The format is lean, clean, and extremely tight – some of the best jazz clarinet work of the time, and proof that the instrument could have a life long after the swing years had ended.

The album's got that solid punch we love in the Smalls Live series – a way of allowing players to really open up and be themselves, yet also find a cohesiveness as a group that you don't often get in studio sessions – that brilliant magic that can make live jazz performance so wonderful, when it's captured this well – a great document of a musical moment and local expression that might have been missed otherwise. Dezron's bass is very upfront in the performance – and the quintet also features tight trumpet from Josh Evans, bold tenor from Stacy Dillard, sharp piano from David Bryant, and smoking drums from Willie Jones III.

Cineparallax, 2013. New Copy .... $13.99 19.99
A really unique film project – one that looks at the musical power of Chicago as a city, with a special focus on the way it helped create unique moments in rock, jazz, and experimental music in the 90s! The film is based around the words and faces of key musical figures from the time – Ken Vandermark, David Grubbs, Steve Albini, Damon Locks, and Ian Williams – all of whom get a fair bit of time on screen, in unusual Chicago settings – as they give their thoughts on the city and its richly creative scene. The approach is more poetic than documentary – and the spoken passages are intercut with some especially nice shots of the city, both in blossom and decay. Plus, the whole thing features a special soundtrack performed by a very unique group – Steve Albini and Terrie Hessells on guitars, David Grubbs on harmonium and guitar, John Herndon on drums, Nate Wolley on trumpet, Ken Vandermark on saxes, Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, and Wayne Montana on bass. 95 minutes, in English with French, Italian, and Portuguese subtitles.

The approach is more open and varied than usual for a session on the Criss Cross label – from the initial spiritual passage of "American Drum Call To Mama", to David Gilmore's guitar atmospherics on "Niecee", to the richness of the album's original compositions. Gilmore's sense of color and phrasing really balance wonderfully with the tenor of Walter Smith – and Orrin Evans' piano is at its most melodically complex as well. The record opens up in so many ways, but still also finds plenty of room to swing, too – on titles that include "The Dream", "Dock's House", "The Essential Passion", "Nightmare Of Fun", and "Culmination For Now".

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $11.99
A beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that great modern style of funk that he was forging at Capitol during the late 60s. The record's not really preachy, nor is it proggy. It's more of a complex blueprint of rock, jazz, funk, and touches of soul – all hung together on the same sort of "mass" structure that Axelrod would later use with Cannonball and on his own. Titles include "Kyrie Eleison", "Gloria", "Benedictus", and "Sanctus". LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Mass In F Minor/Release Of An Oath ... CD
Reprise/Morello (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy .... $13.99
A pair of rare gems from The Electric Prunes – both of which feature key production help from David Axelrod! Mass In F Minor is a beautifully baroque batch of tracks, written and arranged for the Electric Prunes by the great David Axelrod – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that had quite an impact back in the late 60s! The record shows Axelrod's perpetual fascination with the spiritual – mixed with that great modern style of funk that he was forging at Capitol during the late 60s. The record's not really preachy, nor is it proggy. It's more of a complex blueprint of rock, jazz, funk, and touches of soul – all hung together on the same sort of "mass" structure that Axelrod would later use with Cannonball and on his own. Titles include "Kyrie Eleison", "Gloria", "Benedictus", and "Sanctus". Release Of An Oath is the second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's quite similar to his own solo albums over at Capitol! As with those, there's a bold, spacious sort of instrumentation here – richly orchestral, but also quite funky at times – punctuated by great drums from Earl Palmer, bass from Carol Kaye, keyboards from Don Randi, and guitar from Howard Roberts – who's really tripping out nicely here! The work uses the Jewish Kol Nidre mass as its conceptual focus – but really takes off with plenty of tripped-out Axelrod flourishes that make the whole thing a fair bit more psychedelic than anything you'd ever hear in temple. Titles include "Holy Are You", "The Adoration", "Our Father, Our King", "Kol Nidre", and "General Confessional". CD

Brian Eno & David ByrneMy Life In The Bush Of Ghosts ... LP
Sire, 1981. Near Mint- .... $24.99
A groundbreaking collaboration between Brian Eno & David Byrne – recorded with a spare, stripped down love of electronics and found sound samples – in a mode that would have a huge influence on countless records to come! Part of the set resonates with the quirky grooves found in Byrne's early Talking Heads records – but the overall sound is much more stark than that work, and is characterized by key found vocals and odd ethnic bits that really set the tone for each new tune. Eno's influence is felt strongly in the simplicity of the tracks, and in the darkly resonant production modes – that classic Eno touch used here before it became a bit too trademark, in a way that could still make a record like this sound great, even when coming from major label sources! A key force in shaping countless genres to come in the next 25 years – with great tracks that include "America Is Waiting", 'Regiment", "The Jezebel Spirit", "Qu'ran", "Moonlight In Glory", "A Secret Life", "Come With Us", and "Mountain Of Needles".

New Coke EscovedoDisco Fantasy ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- .... $3.99
Not as strong as Coke's earlier work on Mercury – but not a bad album overall, thanks to some tight production work by Pat Gleeson, who's also most likely playing the cool keyboards on the record. Most of the tunes are aimed at the dancefloor – not really disco numbers, but the sort of fast funk jazz-based tunes that showed up in the later years of CTI and Kudu, especially on albums arranged by David Matthews. There's a female vocalist on most of the tracks, although she's not named in the notes – and titles include "Soul Support", "Won't You Gimme The Funk", "Who Do You Want To Love", "Trash Man", "Something Special", and "Hot Soul Single".

Gil Evans, Jerry Dammers, & OthersAbsolute Beginners ... LP
Virgin/EMI, 1986. Near Mint- .... $0.99
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning its ears back in time – to a pre-mod era of the late 50s, which is the setting for Colin McInnes original novel used for the film – portrayed here in a pastiche of vocal and instrumental songs that often have a fair bit of classic touches! Gil Evans was brought in for most of the instrumentals, and turns out some really sparkling charts that have all the charm of his best work of the 50s – and other contemporary artists do a pretty great job themselves – at least on the more jazz-based numbers. Evans numbers include "Va Va Voom" – and the better jazzy tunes includes the excellent "Killer Blow" by Sade, plus "Have You Ever Had It Blue" by The Style Council, "That's Motivation" and "Absolute Beginners" by David Bowie, "Rodrigo Bay" by Working Week, "Selling Out" by Slim Gallard, and "Riot City" by Jerry Dammers.

Marianne FaithfullMarianne Faithfull (Japanese paper sleeve edition – mono & stereo mixes with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca (Japan), 1965. New Copy .... $32.99
The second album from one of the most unique voices in British music in the 60s – a really sublime little set that moves beyond familiar folk, rock, and pop – to put Marianne Faithfull in a mighty special place that's all her own! Right from the very first note of her voice, Marianne's out to sound way different than the rest – with a darkness that almost echoes the solo work of Nico, but a warmer sound that still holds on to some of the previous Brit mode that inform the album. Arrangements are totally great – penned by David Whittaker, Mike Leander, and Jon Mark – conducted by Leander with an eerie sound that's really amazing. Titles include "Come & Stay With Me", "As Tears Go By", "Down Town", "I'm A Loser", "What Have I Done Wrong", "They Never Will Leave You", and "He'll Come Back To Me". CD features 31 tracks in all – mono and stereo mixes of the album, plus bonus tracks that include "Go Away From My World", "Morning Sun", "The Sha La Song", and "The Most Of What Is Least". CD

Four TopsChanging Times ... LP
Motown, 1970. Very Good+ .... $8.99
A very hip album from the Four Tops – cut with kind of a political/social edge, and a heavy vibe that was similar to what the Temptations had been using on some of their important albums for Motown at the end of the 60s. In fact, this one's got so much of that righteous Temps vibe that we wonder if the big boys at Motown didn't say to the Four Tops, "Hey, why don't you do an album like them?" Arrangements are by David Van DePitte and Jimmy Roach – and the record begins with a melange of sound effects and odd sounds, before sliding into the socially-conscious "In These Changing Times". However, the group still retains their wonderfully sweet vocal edge, and even though the political agenda's up front on the album, they still come through strongest on the sweeter and more love-oriented songs. Titles include "Right Before My Eyes", "Something's Tearing At The Edges Of Time", "Sing A Song Of Yesterday", and a medley of "Long & Winding Road" and "In These Changing Times".

Von FreemanHave No Fear (plus bonus track) ... CD
Nessa, 1975. New Copy .... $14.99 16.99
One of the best studio albums ever from the legendary Von Freeman – and a date that really captures some of the careful essence of his live performances in Chicago! Unlike the previous Atlantic album, which tried to fit Von into a more expected bag, this easygoing Nessa session really lets him open up and take off – blowing tunes that are straight ahead, but always with that offbeat style that turns the songs inside out – making them rich exploratory fields for inventive and creative solos! The group fits Von's longtime credo of never upstaging the leader – which gives his tenor lots of room to blow – and players include John Young on piano , David Shipp on bass, and the great Wilbur Campbell on drums. Titles include a great version of Mancini's "Mr Lucky", plus "Swinging The Blues", "Polka Dots And Moonbeams", and "Have No Fear Soul Is Here". This great Nessa CD version has a killer bonus track, too – the Freeman-composed "Boomerang". CD

Friedman's playing vibes and marimba alongside David Samuels, who plays the same – and this twin-vibes approach sounds fantastic – especially as the record has no drums, just additional bass, plus flute by Hubert Laws. The approach is super-dope for any fan of laidback 70s vibes – and the tracks are open, but not free, just groovily gliding numbers. Titles include "Truce", "Nyack", "Brite Piece", "Island", and "Saraband". LP, Vinyl record album

Jabali, 2013. New Copy .... $7.99
An excellent set from reedman Jack Fulks – a player who's hardly ever recorded as a leader, but who we remember well from his spiritual jazz work in LA's Creative Arts Ensemble! This gem of a set has Jack playing in territory that's right back with his older roots – often stretching out on tenor next to the alto sax of Rene Pineda – in a warmly soaring style that reminds us of the 70s Muse sessions by the great Earl & Carl Grubbs! Rhythms on the set are mostly modal – given a nice sense of balance in the piano of David Edelstein – but it's definitely Fulks' talents that make the whole thing come together – his beautiful songs, soulful work on flute and tenor, and the warmth and energy that drives the whole session. Titles include "Liberation", "Panama", "Nautical Times", "Congo Rio", "Bandoleros", "Reflections", and "Pastels". CD

Funk IncHangin' Out/Superfunk ... CD
BGP (UK), 1973. New Copy .... $16.99
Two excellent albums from Funk Inc on one CD! Superfunk is one of the band's greatest albums – and a really tight batch of funky tunes given some stellar production by David Axelrod! The band's a bit tighter than on earlier releases – leaving behind the hard jazz-jam sound for a more together soul-oriented one, heard to best effect on the album's enduring classic, "Goodbye, So Long" – a rolling funky tune that features vocals on the chorus, and an unbelievably catchy instrumental sound that you might recognize instantly from its use as a sample over the years. The rest of the record's just as great – and the band runs through The Meters' classic "Message From The Meters", Barry White's funky "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Babe", and a great rendition of the electric jazz classic "The Hill Where The Lord Hides". Hangin Out features their organ-heavy sound vamping away on some really tight groovers – not as break-heavy as some of the tracks on their first album, but with some excellent modal riffing in a sweet jazz dance mode. The big cuts include "Smokin' At Tiffany's" and "Dirty Red", both groove classics that have a strong Prestige jazz funk sound. Other cuts include a sweet cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love", plus the tracks "We Can Be Friends" and "I'll Be Around". CD

Marvin GayeLet's Get It On ... CD
Motown, 1973. Used .... $1.99
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his previous record. The record shows a sexy side of Marvin that would stun fans of his 60s work – very adult, very warm, and very preoccupied with desire and love. In a way, this sort of full-on love fest was a big payoff for all the folks who'd hung onto his simpler expressions of affection in the earlier years – sort of like getting let into the bedroom after spending years on the front porch! The record was produced by both Marvin and Ed Townsend – and the arrangements by David Van DePitte, Rene Hall, and Gene Page are smooth and seductive all the way through. Includes slow jam classics like "You Sure Love To Ball", "Distant Lover", and "Let's Get It On" – plus "Come Get To This", "Just to Keep You Satisfied", and "If I Should Die Tonight". CD

Motown, 1971. Used .... $3.99
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time.

One of Dizzy Gillespie's finest Afro-Cuban moments! The material on this album has been issued under a few different titles over the years, but this is the early Afro package – the one that features a beautiful David Stone Martin cover, and a title that really gets at the Latin influences in the material. The centerpiece of the record is a side-long workout on the "Manteca" theme, played by Diz and a group that includes Lucky Thompson, Wade Legge, Charlie Persip, and Jose Mangual – all grooving hard in a sound that virtually defines the term of cubop! The other tracks on the album are great too – versions of "Caravan", "Con Alma", and "Night In Tunisia" – all done in a Latin jazz mode, with some nice flute solos by Gilberto Valdes. And if that's not enough, the reissue features a tiny 5" record sleeve cover – just like the original! CD

Silva, 1973. Used .... $16.99
One of the maddest soundtracks you'll ever buy – a strange mix of folksy tunes, sound effects, and odd noisy bits – recorded for the equally odd film of the same name! The record is impossible to describe accurately, but it's a really dark one – strangely fragile at some moments, with a sing-song intensity that almost makes it feel like some of the late 80s pagan folk efforts of David Tibet! The CD divides the music up into 2 sections – Songs From Summerisle, Ballads Of Seduction, Fertility, & Ritual Slaughter – and more incidental music from the film. The first section is really the greatest – and features 11 haunting folksy (really acid folksy) tracks that include "Corn Rigs", "Gently Johnny", "Maypole", "Fire Leap", "Chop Chop", "Procession", "Summer Is A Coming In", and "The Landlord's Daughter". The second half is still great too – but a bit more conventional – and features 5 more numbers, most in "suite" form, including "The Masks/The Hobby Horse", "Opening Music/Loving Couples/The Ruined Church", "Searching For Rowan", and "Appointment With The Wicker Man".
