Cheech & ChongBig Bambu ... LP
Ode, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
We don't know about you, but we never get tired of Cheech & Chong's jokes about reefer and East LA. Loads of great pot jokes on this album with the nice rolling paper gatefold sleeve, including "Sister Mary Elephant", "Ralph & Herbie", "Streets Of New York Or Los Angeles Or San Francisco Or. . .", "The Bust", "Let's Make A Dope Deal" and "Unamerican Bandstand". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the novelty rolling paper. Cover has light wear.)

New BambuJorge's Theme/I Don't Wanna Lose It ... 12-inch
Zebra, Late 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweeping bit of Latin disco composed and conducted by Jorge Barreiro – done with soaring strings throughout, but also a fair bit of jazzy sax work too, and a percussion breakdown near the middle! "I Don't Wanna Lose It" is more conventional disco with a bit of soul-styled vocals on the chorus – but also a track done in the similarly classy mode of the first. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Zebra sleeve, which has light wear.)

New Jan HammerOh, Yeah? ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A jamming little set from Jan Hammer – but one that's still a lot better than most of his other work! The rock influence is strongly felt in most of the tracks on this one, but the overall style is still lean and clean – without as many of the kitschy keyboard lines that later marred the Hammer groove, and more of the well-crafted, space-oriented sounds that Jan was bringing to his best work with other players. There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the main focus here is still on the instrumentation – with Jan on Fender Rhodes, moog, Polymoog, and more – in a quartet that features Steven Kindler on guitar and violin, Fernando Saunders on bass, and Tony Smith on drums. Titles include "Magical Dog", "Evolove", "One To One", "Bambu Forest", and "Red & Orange". LP, Vinyl record album

New Joao DonatoBad Donato ... CD
Blue Thumb/Dubas (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wickedly funky album from Joao Donato – quite different than his earlier bossa sessions, and recorded in LA with a sweet jazzy bounce! The album's overflowing with great keyboard work – and Joao plays both piano and organ, in a group that includes percussion from Emil Richards, who also produced the set with this mad skittish edge that's awash in crazy and off-kilter rhythms! Deodato helped a bit with the arrangements, too – and the album's got an electric feel that's somewhat similar to Deodato's own work on CTI, but a lot more messed up – and with that sense of odd instrumental placement that we love so much in Donato's classic Quem E Quem album! Tracks are all pretty darn great – and titles include "Mosquito", "Bambu", "Cade Jodel", "Lunar Tune", and "The Frog", nicely done here in a funky version! CD

New Reuben WilsonBlue Mode ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from the mighty Reuben Wilson – one of his first few albums for Blue Note, and a solid soulful groover that's right up there with Lou Donaldson's work for the label at the time! Tracks are nice and long, and pretty open – often with that kicking drum sound at the bottom that you'd normally associate with Idris Muhammad, but which is handled here by Tommy Derrick on drums. Melvin Sparks plays some mighty mean guitar – in that great lean early style of his – and the group's completed by John Manning on tenor, a player we don't know at all – but whose lines here are a great counterpart to Wilson's heavy Hammond! Titles include "Orange Peel", "Blue Mode", "Bambu", "Knock On Wood", "Twenty Five Miles", and "Bus Ride". CD

Chris McGregorIn His Good Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing sounds from the legendary Chris McGregor – a rare set of solo piano performances that shows a whole new side of his genius! The music here is still steeped in South African roots, yet has a style that's a bit more personal and intimate than some of Chris' better-known recordings with The Brotherhood Of Breath, or The Blue Notes – as McGregor here has to carry all the weight on his own – and does a tremendous job of spinning out these haunting melodies on piano – usually with a rhythmic pulse that's as compelling as the tune! The style's got echoes of previous Afro-inspired piano jazz from Randy Weston or Dollar Brand – but there's a deftness, and sense of feeling here that's completely McGregor's own – a really compelling quality that holds us rapt in ways that few other solo piano sets might do. This CD brings together lots more material than was on the original LP release – over 70s minutes of music, with track sthat include "Call", "Raincloud", "Umhome", "Mngqusho", "The Bride", "In His Good Time", "Ududu Nombambula", "Kwa Tebugo", and "Green Hymn".
