Novos BaianosNovos Baianos (aka Linguagem Do Alunte) ... CD
Continental/Bomba (Japan), 1974. New Copy .... $22.99
Rootsy samba and hipper 70s MPB influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! Back in these early years, Novos Baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70s Brazilian music – a sense of earnest, open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the Tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the Brazilian underground of the early 70s! The style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group's other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar, but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation, as well as some folkloric flute! Titles include "Reis Da Bola", "Isabel", "Bolado", "Miragem", "Fala Tamborim", "Ao Poeta", and "Eu Sou O Caso Deles". CD

Elza SoaresNegra Elza Soares (12 CD set) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Brazil), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 12 CDs .... $154.99
A fantastic collection of work from Elza Soares – one of Brazil's grooviest singers in the 60s, and an artist who sounded even better in the 70s! The set brings together 22 of Elza's classic albums for EMI/Odeon – 21of them recorded between the years 1960 and 1977, plus one more from 1988, and a disc of rare material too – an incredible amount of work from a singer who really helped transform the sound of Brazilian music! The package features two albums on each CD – which really means that you get a heck of a lot of great albums in the 12-disc set – not just early samba sides from Soares, but some cool late 60s groovy records, early 70s experiments, and great soulful sessions too. Plus, the set also features a bonus CD of rare samba tunes by Elza – most of which haven't appeared on CD before – material from singles and compilations that rounds out this amazing package! Most CDs come with bonus tracks too – and albums include Se Acaso Voce Chegasse, A Bossa Negra, O Samba E Elza Soares, Sambossa, Na Roda Do Samba, Um Show De Elza, Com A Bola Branca, O Maxima Em Samba, Elza Miltinho E Samba, Baterista Wilson Das Neves, Elza Miltinho E Samba Vol 2, Elza Carnaval & Samba, Elza Miltinho E Samba Vol 3, Sambas E Mais Sambas, Elza Pede Passagem, Sangue Suor E Raca, Elza Soares (1973), Elza Soares (1974), Nos Bracos Do Samba, Licao De Vida, Pilao Raca Elza, and Voltei.

VariousAfro-Baby – Evolution Of The Afro Sound In Nigeria 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used .... $6.99
Get ready to discover a whole new realm of African Funk – because this collection digs deeper than any we've ever had before! The mighty Soundway Records have come up with a blistering batch of grooves that push way past the bigger hits on the global scene – to the real roots of the Afro Funk sound of the 70s, an assortment of Nigerian recordings that have an undeniable combination of African rhythms and American funk! Percussion is at the forefront of the set – and most tracks feature lots of skittish drum work, topped off by hard riffing on sax, guitar, and keyboards. The whole thing's very much in the best tradition of our favorite grooves by Fela – and titles include "Asa Sa" by Fred Fisher, "No Wrong Show" by Thony Shorby Nyenwi, "Omelebele" by Dr Victor Olaiya's International All Stars, "Afro Baby" by Stephen Osita Amaechi & His Afro Rhythm Skies, "Ochonma" by Martins Brothers Dance Band, "Alikali Adajo" by Sahara All Stars, "Lagos Sisi" by Bola Johnson, "Ire" by Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, and "Son Of Mr Bull Dog" by The Mebusas.

New VariousNigeria Special Part 2 – Modern Highlife, Afro Sounds, & Nigerian Blues 1970 to 1976 ... LP
Soundway (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... $23.99
Essential work from the African scene of the 70s – a collection of tracks that goes way beyond the more familiar grooves of Fela Kuti and Manu Dibango! The set may well be the deepest so far we've heard from the always-amazing Soundway Records – a package that digs into a wealth of under-heard music from early 70s Nigeria, all of it beyond simple stylistic definitions and overplayed world music cliches! Many of the grooves here are wonderfully unique – odd fusions of styles that include highlife, jazz, soul, Afrobeat, and other regional influences – sifted and shaken together, and spilled out in the studio with a really fresh sort of feel. Rhythms are at the core of most numbers here, but even those are often unfamiliar – skittish, soulful, and often somewhat playful – and the other instrumentation on the tracks is great too, and often resonates with some of the odd sounds and tunings we love in work on the Ethiopiques series. Vinyl part 2 features 14 tracks that include "Belema" by Opotopo, "Asiko Mi Ni" by Nigerian Police Force Band, "Alabeke" by Dan Satch & His Atomic 8 Dance Band, "Blak Sound" by Leo Fadaka & The Heroes, "Arraino" by Popular Cooper & His All Beats Band, "Ugali" by Tony Benson Sextet, "Akpaisong" by Etubom Rex Williams & His Nigerian Allstars, "Eguae Oba" by Osayomore Joseph & The Creative 7, "Torri Wowo" by Godwin Ezike & The Ambassadors, "Buroda Mase" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats, "I Want A Break Thru" by The Hykkers, and "Eguae Oba" by Osayomore Joseph & The Creative 7.

New Emilio SantiagoComigo E Assim/O Canto Crescente/Guerreiro Coracao ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1977/1979/1980. New Copy 3CD .... Just Sold Out!
A trio of wonderful records from Emilio Santiago – all of which capture him at a key point in his career! Comigo E Assim is a classic batch of jazzy soul from Santiago – one of his best – with sweet 70s arrangements by the likes of Joao Donato, Sivuca, Roberto Menescal, and Antonio Adolfo, all of whom craft a slightly funky style that works wonders with Santiago's vocals. If you've ever bought one of his later, sleepier albums, this is the one to start with – as the record's a great batch of tracks that lives up to the notoriety he's had over the past few years with the international groove scene. Titles include "Nega", "Comigo E Assim", "E Hora", "Danca Mineira", "Preconceito", "Te Cuida, Rapaz", "No Balanco Do Trem", and "Quando Chegares". O Canto Crescente is a wonderful gem from Emilio Santiago – soaring and hip all the way through! After some of his earlier funkier work, this may well be the best full album ever cut by Santiago – thanks to some warm jazzy arrangements from the likes of Antonio Adolfo and Meirelles, both of whom really make the set sparkle with a warm electric piano groove! Emilio's vocals are great – soulful and sophisticated at once, perfectly fitting with the light jazzy changes of the tracks, giving them the right dose of honest emotion. Titles include "Rola Bola", "Recado", "Logo Agora", "Caridade", "Bufete E Cascudo", "Trocando Em Muidos", and "Quase Sempre". Guerreiro Coracao captures Emilio Santiago in a sweet live setting – one that really brings out the sharpest crackle in his music! Titles include "Diariamente", "Perdao", "Pela Metade", "Guerreiro Coracao", "De Repente", "Mistura", "Dama Da Noite", "Minhas Madrugadas", and "Anuncio Classificado". CD

A really cool little compilation of Rio favela funk – the raw, vamping, big bass and sampler funk style that have been rocking the best clubs from Rio to Miami in recent years! This set was put together by the great Irma label – in conjunction with Colors Magazine – to document the gritty, pulsating groove of a Rio baile – and it's full of the thundering, thumping and favela booty sound that DJs are now rocking the world over! 18 tracks in all: "Retorno De Jedi" by Mc Pe De Pano E O Bonde Do Bogdov, "Tres Tenores" by Os Carrascos, Kabo Kaki" by Taty Quebra Barraco, "Traducao" by Bonde Do Vinho, "Espanha" by Dom Ruam, "Atoladinha" Bola De Fogo & As Foguentas, "New Game" by Pepe DJ and more!

New VariousAngola Soundtrack 2 – Hypnosis, Distortions, & Other Sonic Innovations 1969 to 1978 (with bonus track) ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A stunning companion to the first Angola Soundtrack set from Analog Africa – and a record that's filled with tunes that are rhythmically feverish, soulfully sung, and tremendously addictive! The music here is from the period soon after the electric guitar began to make a huge impact on regional African music – and the sharp lines of the instrument are woven into the fabric at a level that's both rhythmic and melodic at the same time – often hypnotically produced with a bit more echo than some of the other instruments, and almost always used with a pulse the really drives the tunes! Yet the sounds are never overindulgent or offbeat for their own needs – and instead have this timeless quality that makes the whole collection immediately appealing, even to ears untrained on any other African sounds – coming across with a vibe that goes far beyond the boundaries of language or nation – just the kind of culture-crossing we've come to love from Analog Africa. Titles include "Avante Juventude" by Os Anjos,"Senhor Doutor" by Quim Manuel O Espirito Santo, "N'Hoca" by Tony Von, "Aagarrem" by Africa Ritmos, "Lemba" by Negoleiros Do Ritmo, "Bazooka" by Carlos Lamartine E Aguias Reias, "Olha O Pica" by Africa Ritmos, "Despedida" by Dimba Diangola, and "Fatimita" by Urbano De Castro – plus the bonus track "Fuguei Na Escola (Para Jogar A Bola)" by Teta Lando.

Strut (UK), 1970s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Sweet Times, indeed – Strut Records returns for another truly great volume in their Nigeria 70 series – this one covering the highlife, juju and Afro Funk music of Lagos in the 1970s – stellar material that has never been issued outside of Nigeria before now! There's a pretty diverse cross section of the sounds coming from the region at the time – from upbeat funky Afro Soul to psych-infused guitar and percussion jams, jazzier instrumentation and impassioned vocals – most crucially, fusions of jazz, funk, soul, juju and highlife. Wonderful, wonderful material that stands proudly with the other great entries in the series. Includes "Life" by Moneyman And The Super 5 International, ""Ire" by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, "Unity In Africa" by Eji Oyewole, "Idegbani" by Zeal Onyia & His Music, "Viva Disco (Instrumental)" by Tunde Mabadu, "E Ma S'Eka" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats, "Ajoyio" by Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey & His International Brothers and more.

Francy BolandFrancy Boland Playing With The Trio ... CD
Rearward (Italy), 1967. New Copy .... $18.99
One of the few small group recordings ever cut by pianist Francy Boland – and a set that cooks every bit as much as his work with the larger Clarke Boland Big Band on MPS! The reason for the cooking is clear – Francy's got key rhythmic help from group members Jimmy Woode on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums – players who are way more than just partners with Boland on the session – more musical soulmates, especially from a rhythmic perspective – and able to work at that unique Clarke Boland level that's both lyrical and swinging, soulful and modern! The tunes are played in this way that really shows off Boland's skills on the keys – but never in a style that's flashy, just fresh and filled with surprising tones and twists – backed superbly by Woode and Clarke. Titles include "The Girl & The Turk", "Gamal Sady'N'Em", "Night Lady", "Myriam Doll", "I'm All Smiles", "Lonely Girl", and "Nights In Warsaw". CD

The lineup here includes Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes and bongos, Joe Harris on percussion, and Jimmy Woode on bass – plus Clarke and Boland on drums and piano, respectively – a wonderful group that has an incredible sense of rhythm, and comes up with loads of wonderful modal numbers throughout! The vibe is wonderful – and the collection's a great look at this unusual combo – filled with fire and soul – and proof that in the jazz world, at least, great things can happen when global boundaries are crossed.

One of the hippest albums ever from the team of Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland – a unique small combo session that's even groovier than their famous big band work! The setting is wonderful – Clarke on drums, Boland on piano, and a sextet lineup that includes Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Joe Harris on percussion – all players who know each other well, and groove together as one amazing unit on the set! The tunes here are lyrical and lively, modal and moving, and still some of the freshest jazz cut on the European scene of the 60s – music that's having a huge impact these days in the club jazz underground. Shihab's flute work is sublime, especially next to Sadi's vibes – and Harris' added percussion gives a number of the cuts a bit of a Latin kick that's totally great! There's a bit of vocals on the set, and titles include "Ebony Samba", "Tin Tin Deo", "Potter's Crossing", "Wives & Lovers", "Ensadinado", "Lorraine", "Day By Day", "Love Hungry", and "Please Don't Leave".

Great work by this legendary hard swinging band – an early 60s American album issued on Atlantic Records, in the years before the Clark Boland Band's legendary run on MPS! Despite the early date, the album's got all the core elements of the band's sound in place – soaring rhythms, sharp-edged frontlines, and some great solo work by players who include Benny Bailey, Derek Humble, Jimmy Woode, Shahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, and Fats Sadi – coming together in a brilliant trans-Atlantic meeting of jazz talents! Tracks include "Long Note Blues", "Speedy Reeds", "Sonor", and "Om Mani Padme Hum". LP, Vinyl record album

Rearward (Italy), 1970. New Copy .... $19.99
Easily the hippest of the Clarke-Boland Big Band Records from the classic years – a set of hard grooving tracks that really pushes the envelope of their style! There's a few elements here that are different than usual – such as the presence of electric piano on a few tracks, which creates a very new sound for the group, the presence of some exotic jazz influences (perhaps borrowed from the MPS Jazz Meets The World series), and the use of some edgier compositions on the set, including work by late 60s European free-thinkers, like Eddie Louiss, Albert Mangelsdorff, and John Surman. The reed work is really incredible in this setting – and is handled by Sahib Shihab, Ronnie Scott, Billy Mitchell, and Derek Humble – all of whom seem to blow with inspiration from Surman – using tones that are far more out there than usual. Titles include "Exorcisme", "Sakara", "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Osaka Calling", "Wintersong", and "Astrorama". CD

Rearward (Italy), 1965. New Copy .... $22.99
A brilliant recording by a small combo from the larger big band of drummer Kenny Clarke and pianist Francy Boland – and a great illustration of the driving, soulful sound the group always had at its core! The combo here features some of the most important members of the bigger unit – all artists who have a distinct personality, but an incredible way of coming together in a groove – in ways that are completely unlike any American jazz of the time, and light years ahead of most European work too! The music's really a blueprint for sounds to come for many decades – but served up here by the originals, who do the whole groove better than anyone else could ever touch. The performance is live – recorded in honor of Marcel Marceau – who could hardly keep quiet with such greatness like this in the room! The sextet features Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes and bongos, Francy Boland on piano, Joe Harris on percussion, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Jimmy Woode on bass and vocal – the latter of which is especially nice. Tracks include "Just Give Me Time", "Invitation", "Con Alma", "Serenata", "Born To Be Blue", "Yah Yah", "Balafon For Marcel Marceau", and "Insensatez". LP, Vinyl record album

Carl Drewo & The Clarke Boland Big BandSwing Waltz Swing ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue).... $18.99
One of the coolest projects ever to come from the Clarke Boland Big Band scene of the 60s – an album done under the leadership of Austrian tenor player Carl Drewo, but one that features all of his bandmates from the better-known big band! The set's wonderfully swinging throughout – done in a jazz waltz style with plenty of modal inflections – hardly the overdone Strauss modes you might expect from Drewo's roots, and more of the groovy 60s European rhythm modes that would show up often in sessions on Saba & MPS! Most tracks dance along beautifully – using instrumentation that includes Benny Bailey and Dusko Goykovich on trumpets, Sal Nistico on tenor, Sahib Shihab on baritone and flute, and Derek Humble on alto – all supported by the CBBB rhythm team of Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – plus the amazing Fats Sadi on percussion, really grooving along nicely at the bottom. Drewo's the lead soloist in most numbers, but he allows plenty of space for his bandmates too – and the session's got a sound we'd rank right up there with some of the best Clarke Boland projects of the 60s. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Fruhlingsstimmen", "My Favorite Things", "Claudia", "Schon Ist Die Welt", "Just Give Me Time", and "Keep On Keeping On". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/BGO (UK), 1970/1972/1973. New Copy 2 CDs .... $16.99
Three albums that form the start of a bold new start for trumpeter Maynard Ferguson – and records that opened up a whole new groove for big band in the 70s! MF Horn is a brilliant album that owes a heck of a lot to Brit easy maestro Keith Mansfield! Mansfield produced the whole thing, and arranged with the help of Kenny Wheeler and Adrian Dover – and the whole record has the tightness of the best expansive Brit easy grooves from the time – setting Ferguson's brassy horn in some impeccable backings that have an amazing blend of jazz, easy, and rhythm – never failing to please our oft-jaded ears! Way more than just funky big band, with a really solid approach all the way through – and solo work by Kenny Wheeler and Pete King, in addition to Ferguson. Titles include the Indian groover "Chala Nata", plus "L-Dopa", "Eli's Comin", "Ballad To Max", and "MacArthur Park". MF Horn 2 is one of Maynard's key albums done with help from Brit Easy genius Keith Mansfield! Mansfield really helped Ferguson reinvent the sound of his big band at the end of the 60s – taking the sometimes modern, sometimes brassy sound of his earlier work and forging it into a tighter groove that often had a nice bit of bounce at the bottom – a slightly funky sound that made Maynard sound hipper than ever, and which also brought in a nice dose of electric keyboards and guitar to groove things up. Arrangements are by Kenny Wheeler, Mansfield, and Adrian Drover – and titles include "Give It One", "Hey Jude", "The Summer Knows", "Mother", "Spinning Wheel", "Shaft", and "Free Wheeler". MF Horn 3 is funky funky Maynard – and a sweet set of electric big band jazz that's got plenty of nice moments! The album features a core rhythm group that really goes to town – jamming in sort of a Clarke-Boland sort of way, with lots of propulsive changes that create a full-on and often funky groove – as Maynard and other horns blow like mad over the top, sending the album into screaming, soaring grooves that almost never let up. The record was Maynard's first US effort in a long time – and was produced by Teo Macero with a very electric-conscious sound that further enforced the hipness of the music! Titles include "Pochahontas", "Awright Awright", "Nice N Juicy", "SOMF", and "Mother Fingers". CD

Johnny GriffinNight Lady ... CD
Philips/Universal (Germany), 1964. New Copy .... $8.99
A rare European gem from Johnny Griffin – recorded in quartet formation with backing from the rhythm trio of the Clarke Boland Big Band! Johnny was working with the trio in the bigger group at the time, but he gets plenty of space to state his case here – stretching out on hard-bitten, almost-modern solos that are some of his most adventurous to date on record – supported strongly on the album's longish tracks by Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! There's a quality to Griffin's tone that's incredible – urgent, edgey, but never too far out – completely in command of itself, and able to run free, but without wasting at note at all – unlike some of his over-stretched European solos of later years. The set features beautiful long readings of Boland's "Night Lady" and "Old Stuff", plus Griffin's "Scrabble", and versions of "Summertime", "All The Things You Are", and "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day".

John's ChildrenStrange Affair – The Sixties Recordings (Singles & Rarities/Orgasm with bonus tracks) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $18.99
Completely wonderful work from John's Children – a group who are probably best-remembered as the early home for a young Marc Bolan, but who are already great enough on their own! John's Children have a madly playful approach – one that brings together the best elements of Brit beat and psych, but with a wit that rivals The Who on A Quick One – no surprise, given that the group toured famously with The Who at the time! Yet these guys are hardly copycats at all – and are definitely one of the most unique groups from the London scene at the time – the start of so many ideas that other groups might steal later, and work into their own sound – yet served up here with a core essence that's completely unique, and still mindblowingly fresh after all these years. This package is the best and most complete we've ever seen on John's Children – and features 26 singles, including some solo Andy Ellison or Silence tracks – plus the full 10 track Orgasm album, and an additional 16 rare mixes and alternates too. Titles include "Strange Affair", "Desdemona", "Remember Thomas A Becket", "Sara Crazy Child", "Go Go Girl", "Arthur Green", "Midsummer Night's Scene", "Help", "Cornflake Zoo", Casbah Candy", "Killer Ben", "Jagged Time Lapse", "Leave Me Alone", "Why Do You Like", and "You're A Nothing".

Gloria JonesWindstorm ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Sealed .... $2.99
A later effort from 60s soul singer Gloria Jones – one recorded in England, with a sweeping sophisticated feel! Arrangements are by producer Richard Jones, as well as dancefloor maestro Paul Riser – who helps give the record a similar groove to some of his other great 70s work from earlier years – that great soaring vibe that can really push a singer like Gloria forward! The style's not really disco or club – just a fuller, more upbeat approach to soul music that shows Jones stepping nicely into adult modes. The album carries a dedication to her late paramour Marc Boland – and titles include "Hooked On You Baby", "Woman Is A Woman", "Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me", "Windstorm", "Bring On The Love", and "Blue Light Microphone".

Lewis ConnectionLewis Connection ... LP
Numero, 1978. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99 15.98
Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a mighty American groove on the set – a wicked approach to funk that's very much in the best ensemble mode of the period – but leaner too, given the smaller lineup, and relatively sparse production – which makes most of the record bristle like some rare boogie 45! Vocals are by the brothers, plus female singer Barbara Bolar, and later Prince-mate Sonny Thompson – and Prince himself even adds in some slight magic to one cut on the set. Titles include "Dynamic Duo", "Got To Be Something", "Get Up", "Higher", "Feel Good To Ya", and "Mr G". (And for the record, the group's name on the cover was originally the Lewis Conection – but our spell checker has the title listed with the regular spelling!) LP, Vinyl record album

Jerzy MilianStratus Nimbus – BRT Big Band Sketches 1982 to 1987 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy .... $16.99
Wonderful large group material from Polish jazz genius Jerzy Milian – an artist we usually know for his work on vibes, but who emerges here to be a hell of a composer and arranger as well! Most of the tracks here feature some work on vibes – played both by Jerzy and Clark Boland Big Band stalwart Fats Sadi – but there's also an even richer focus on the horn passages, too – which spin out with this sense of color and tone that's really amazing – somewhere between the soulfulness of an MPS big band recording of the 70s, and the fuller elements of a soundtrack. Vibes punctuate the horn charts in a really nice way, and the tunes are complex yet completely organic too – very fresh in both construction and execution, yet never too cerebral either. Titles include "Kara Kum", "Silesian Sketches", "Sketches From China", "Living Inside Two Worlds", "Ora Et Colabora", and "Stratus Nimbus". CD

Ennio MorriconeVeruschka ... LP
Right Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $14.99
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" theme is one of his most beautiful – a variation of female vocals with a gentle edge, in the tradition of classic soundtracks like La Donna Invisible or Le Photo Proibite. This theme shifts from mood to mood over the course of the LP, occasionally giving way to some more atonal passages and other more jazz-based tunes – more of which are included here than on the original release, thanks to an expanded reissue job by Right Tempo! In fact, the whole thing's bubbling over with great music – one of the best Morricone reissues we've ever stocked – done with great sound and a huge array of extra tracks! Titles include a number of takes on the "Verushka" theme, plus "Astratto", "La Bambola", "Le Fotografie", "Magia", "La Spiaggia", and "Dopo L'Intervista". LP, Vinyl record album

Don't think "waltz music", think "modal jazz" – because the version of jazz waltz that Shorty Rogers serves up here is a great precursor to the great grooves to come on the European scene – especially the work from the artists at MPS Records! Tunes all have this great rhythmic pulse – a way of leaping into a groove that has the piano and bass dancing together wonderfully – often with some cool vibes from Emil Richards, and loads of great reed lines from Bud Shank and Paul Horn! Some tracks feature a small combo, some feature a larger group – and the whole thing is wonderful – with energy that almost rivals the Clarke Boland Big Band with Gigi Campi. Titles include "Be As Children", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Jazz Waltz", "Terrence's Farewell", and "A Taste Of Honey". CD

Sao Paulo Underground (Rob Mazurek)Tres Cabacas Loucuras ... CD
Cuneiform, 2011. New Copy .... $15.99 17.98
The third and best album yet from Sao Paulo Underground – formed by Chicago scene veteran and sonic adventurer Rob Mazurek – with a sound that's informed by the rhythms and creatively boundless possibilities of Tropicalia era Brazil and well beyond, along with the cosmic spirit of other Mazurek projects such as the Exploding Star Orchestra. This is hypnotic, attention seizing work that pushes boundaries and challenges tradition while still respecting it – it's never less than fully engrossing and pulls you right in, but it also skirts convention on just about every level. Mazurek's on coronet and electronics that fracture and fuzz out the atmosphere, creating some really dynamic interplay with instrumentation. Mauricio Takara is on cavaquinho, drums and percussion, Guilherme Granado on keys, loops, samples and percussion and Richard Ribeiro on drums. A pair of excellent tracks feature fellow modern greats with roots in the Chicago underground – vibes player Jason Adasiewicz and drummer John Herndon on "Just Lovin'" and "Six Six Eight" – the latter also featuring bass player Matthew Lux. The entire album is no less impressive, though! Titles include "Jagoda's Dream", "Pigeon", "Carambola", "Colibri", "Lado Leste", and "Rio Negro". CD

Double-length brilliance from the mighty Sahib Shihab – a set that collects a number of killer 60s sessions with members of the Clarke Boland Big Band – all of them great! The small combo work here is amazing – hard-hitting modal jazz that matches, if not tops the best MPS/Saba sounds of the time – all produced to perfection with a really sharp edge, and a cutting approach to jazz that's gone onto inspired countless others in the current scene – including artists on Schema and Ricky-Tick Records, as well as most Japanese club jazz combos! But long before any of those cats started copping his groove, Sahib Shihab had it all totally together – a great ear for his own amazing solos on baritone and flute, and a way of hooking up with players like Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Benny Bailey on trumpet, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. All players here were Shihab's partners in the Clarke Boland Big Band, and they use these small combo sessions to explore some great new ideas – stripped-down groovers that are heavy on rhythm, and really allow full expression from all the players involved. Titles include "Companionship", "Om Mani Padme Hum", "Bohemia After Dark", "Serenata", "Yah Yah Blues", "Balafon", "Talk Some Yak-ee Dak", "The Turk's Bolero", "CT + CB", "Jay Jay", "Stoned Ghosts", "Just Give Me Time", and "Dijdar".

Shihab always sounded great, no matter what the setting, but there was definitely something magical going on with this session – a one-of-a-kind energy that made his baritone and flute work sound incredibly soulful, searching, and searing – set up with a tight small combo that includes Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – a hip slice of the Clarke Boland Big Band that works beautifully together!

Cinevox (Italy), 1969. Used .... $22.99
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines to set the rhythms, and scatting lyrics from I Cantori Moderni – a group who make the act of counting to 5 sound incredibly cool! The feel is quite similar to Umiliani's sublime Sweden Heaven & Hell soundtrack (and at one point, you even can hear the guy with the funny voice from "Mah Na Mah Na") – and the music is exactly the kind of wonderful stuff that first got us digging Italian film scores so many years ago. This great reissue adds a bunch of previously unreleased tracks to the original – a whopping 34 tracks in all – 14 from the original album, plus 3 stereo bonus cuts, and another 17 mono tunes. Titles include a few versions of the main theme, plus "Titoli Coda", "Luna Di Piero Agosto", "Bambola Omicida", "Interludio Azzurro", "Cinque Bambole", and "Danza Jazz Moon". CD

One of the nicest collections of Italian western soundtracks we've ever seen – and one with an approach that really gets at the best aspects of the genre! The set's got a great ear for the subtler, simpler, sometimes gentler styles used in spaghetti western scores – and it gets past the obvious, overdone, sometimes kitschy modes that seem to dominate other sets. Many titles are pulled from the catalog of Cinevox records, with a few other entries from additional Italian labels – and the package features 40 tracks in all, with titles that include "Seven Men" and "Quanto Costa Morire" by Franceso De Masi, "I Lunghi Giorni Della Vendetta" by Armando Trovajoli, "Gio La Testa" by Ennio Morricone, "Tema Di Clayton" by Pino Donaggio, "I Giorni Della Violenza" by Bruno Nicolai, "Carambola" by Franco Bixio & Fabio Frizzi, "Fantasia Western" by Roberto Pregadio, "Jeff Bloom" by Gianfranco Di Stefano, "Vado Vedo E Sparo" by Carlo Rustichelli, and "Ya Me Voy" by Luiz Bacalov.

Tripped out gems from the glory days of the Italian soundtrack scene – tunes that are awash in magical musical touches, often with a fair bit more subtlety than you might expect from the psychedelic reference in the title! The work here is often somewhat mellow, but in a really great way – gently moving along in space with light guitar lines, organ, harpsichord, wordless vocals, and other elements – put together with effortless ease, and often produced in a way that makes the simplest of sounds come out with strangely abstract results. A few of the numbers are a bit dark, but mostly the mood is light and dreamy – and the package features 28 titles in all, with tracks that include "High Altar" and "Sidestep" by Berto Pisano, "L'Alfiere" and "I Giovanni Tigre" by Piero Piccioni, "4321 Morte" by Anton Garcia Abril, "Rebus" by Luis Bacalov, "What" by Claudio Gizzi, "Bambola Omicida" and "Danza Citar Free" by Piero Umiliani, "Forza G" and "Venta Del Mar" by Ennio Morricone, and "Il Filo Dei Giorni" and "L'Attesa" by Armando Trovajoli.

A fantastic early record by Sahib Shihab – a motherlode of modal jazz grooves, cut during the early days of the Clarke-Boland Big Band! The record features a core group of players from that ensemble – including Shihab on alto, baritone, and flute, plus Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, Ake Persson on trombone, Francy Boland on piano, Joe Harris on bongos, and Kenny Clarke on drums – all coming together here with a groove that's really groundbreaking – a style that's sweet and soulful, but rhythmically revolutionary too! The tracks are all long and grooving – with the kind of dancing jazz tone that you'd expect from the Saba/MPS label during the mid 60s – a big change from the Argo label that originally issued the record. But that's no surprise, either, as the session was actually recorded in Europe by Gigi Campi – the man behind the CBBB albums on MPS – with a feel that's quite similar to other Shihab classics, like Companionship or Seeds. The whole thing's great – one of Shihab's most wonderful records, and totally worth owning – and titles include "Lillemor", "Please Don't Leave Me", "Waltz For Seth", and "Herr Fixit". CD

MPS/Rearward (Italy), 1969. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A large group in a small club – the legendary Clarke Boland Big Band, playing at the home turf of one of their key members – tenorist Ronnie Scott! The set features a very legendary performance by the ensemble – a crack lineup that's easily one of the best ever sported by the CBBB – perfectly mixing American rhythms, and a trans-Atlantic lineup of soloists – all tied together with just the sort of rich arrangements that make the group so great! Things groove right from the get-go – thanks to a rhythm lineup that features Kenny Clarke on drums, and Francy Boland on piano – plus bassist Ron Matthewson, sitting in for the usual Jimmy Woode. The horn players really send things off, though – tight trumpets from Benny Bailey, Idrees Sulieman, and Dusko Goykovich; bold trombones from Ake Persson and Nat Peck; and some searing reed lines from Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, Derek Humble on alto, Sahib Shihab on baritone, and Tony Coe on both tenor and clarinet.

A brilliant recording by a small combo from the larger big band of drummer Kenny Clarke and pianist Francy Boland – and a great illustration of the driving, soulful sound the group always had at its core! The combo here features some of the most important members of the bigger unit – all artists who have a distinct personality, but an incredible way of coming together in a groove – in ways that are completely unlike any American jazz of the time, and light years ahead of most European work too! The music's really a blueprint for sounds to come for many decades – but served up here by the originals, who do the whole groove better than anyone else could ever touch. The performance is live – recorded in honor of Marcel Marceau – who could hardly keep quiet with such greatness like this in the room! The sextet features Sahib Shihab on flute, Fats Sadi on vibes and bongos, Francy Boland on piano, Joe Harris on percussion, Kenny Clarke on drums, and Jimmy Woode on bass and vocal – the latter of which is especially nice. Tracks include "Just Give Me Time", "Invitation", "Con Alma", "Serenata", "Born To Be Blue", "Yah Yah", "Balafon For Marcel Marceau", and "Insensatez". CD

Two big band swingers from the 60s UK scene – back to back on a single CD! First up is Big Band Spectacular from pianist/arranger Sam Fonteyn – a set that's got a full brace of horns on most tracks, blasting hard with the swinging rhythms of the album! Fonteyn's on piano, but buried a bit in the mix, thanks to the horns – and there is some nice bongos, vibes, and guitar that comes into play at times – which helps keep things interesting. Titles include "My Hero", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", "You Do Something To Me", "So In Love", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", and "It's All Right With Me". Drum Spectacular is an album that definitely earns its name – thanks to heavy work on the kit from Kenny Clare and Ronnie Stephenson – not to mention a great lineup of horn players too! The ensemble is slightly large, but still has a lean feel – a bit like the Clarke Boland Big Band at times, a group that occasionally featured Clare. Players include Tony Coe and Tubby Hayes on tenor, Kenny Baker and Kenny Wheeler on trumpets, Don Lusher and Keith Christie on trombones, and Alan Branscombe on piano – and arrangements are by the great Stan Tracey, Kenny Napper, Ian Hamer, and Tubby Hayes. Titles include "The Hawk Talks", "Drumboogie", "Caravan", "Drum Spectacular", "Portrait Of Elvin", "Afro Charlie", and "Talkin About Drums". CD

MPS/Prestige, 1969. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great stuff – the US issue of some very rare tracks that were recorded for MPS in Germany under the leadership of either Carmell Jones or Nathan Davis. One group on the record features Davis and Jones, along with a rhythm section of Francy Boland, Kenny Clarke, and Jimmy Woode. They swing very very hard, and keep in a tight groove on tracks like "Carmell's Black Forest Waltz", "The Hip Walk", and "That Kaycee Thing". The other group is a little bit more swing-based, and features Jones, Pony Poindexter, Leo Wright, Fritz Pauer, and some guest vocals by Annie Ross. They do a long version of "Twisted", with great solos, plus a less-stellar version of "Jumpin At The Woodside". Very hard swingin' jazz, and one of the best MPS/Saba recordings of American players in Europe! LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

As any reader of these pages will know, we're nuts about Ennio Morricone – the greatest Italian soundtrack composer ever, and quite possibly one of the greatest composers to have ever walked the face of this planet! Here, a similarly Morricone-mad bunch of folks pay tribute to the maestro, by remixing tracks from his classic soundtracks of the 60s and 70s! Titles include "The Man With The Harmonica" by Apollo Four Forty, "Chi Mai" by Nightmares On Wax, "Giocoso, Gioioso" by Groove Corporation, "La Bambola Come Maddalena" by Sofa Surfers, "La Lucertola" by De Phazz, "Clan Of The Sicilians" by DJ Dick of Rocker's Hi-Fi, "Il Grande Silencio" by Thievery Corporation, and "Belinda May" by Fantastic Plastic Machine. 13 tracks in all!

New Dave RemingtonChicago Shouts! ... LP
Universal, 1968. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy lost relic of the Chicago studio jazz scene of the 60's. Trombonist Dave Remington leads a groovy pop jazz band that includes Les Hooper on drums, John Klemmer on tenor, and Irene Kral on vocals. There's a number of nice tracks that have a cool soundtrack sound to them, especially cuts like "Unlit Room" and "Without Rhyme Or Reason", which have very swingin' vocals by Kral. Kind of a mix between Hugo Montenegro and the Clarke/Boland Big Band – and with a very groovy groove. Other cuts include "Lonly Pircus", "Here's Hoyle", "March Winds", and "Last Summer's Spell".

New Sao Paulo Underground (Rob Mazurek)Tres Cabacas Loucuras ... CD
Cuneiform, 2011. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third and best album yet from Sao Paulo Underground – formed by Chicago scene veteran and sonic adventurer Rob Mazurek – with a sound that's informed by the rhythms and creatively boundless possibilities of Tropicalia era Brazil and well beyond, along with the cosmic spirit of other Mazurek projects such as the Exploding Star Orchestra. This is hypnotic, attention seizing work that pushes boundaries and challenges tradition while still respecting it – it's never less than fully engrossing and pulls you right in, but it also skirts convention on just about every level. Mazurek's on coronet and electronics that fracture and fuzz out the atmosphere, creating some really dynamic interplay with instrumentation. Mauricio Takara is on cavaquinho, drums and percussion, Guilherme Granado on keys, loops, samples and percussion and Richard Ribeiro on drums. A pair of excellent tracks feature fellow modern greats with roots in the Chicago underground – vibes player Jason Adasiewicz and drummer John Herndon on "Just Lovin'" and "Six Six Eight" – the latter also featuring bass player Matthew Lux. The entire album is no less impressive, though! Titles include "Jagoda's Dream", "Pigeon", "Carambola", "Colibri", "Lado Leste", and "Rio Negro". CD

New Sahib ShihabSahib Shihab And All Those Cats ... CD
Rearward/Schema (Italy), Mid 60s-Early 70s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although reed player Sahib Shihab made a few records in the US in the late 50's, it wasn't until he moved to Europe and started hanging out with the likes of the Clarke-Boland Big Band that his talents really started to flower. This cool new CD brings together 15 small-combo recordings made by Shihab and other members of the CBBB (like Fats Sadi, Benny Bailey, Francy Boland, and Jimmy Woode) during the mid 60's. All the material was recorded by CBBB manager/producer Gigi Campi, and none of the stuff's been issued before as far as we can tell. The groove is nice and swinging, with excellent rolling grooves by Sadi on bongos and vibes. Shihab plays both flute and baritone, and the set swings with the same sort of modal groove as the best Saba/MPS recordings from the time. Cuts include "Campi's Idea", "Dijdar", "Companionship (I + II)", "Peter's Waltz", "Om Mani Padme Hum", and "Herr Fixit". As with the other titles in this series, the music's accompanied by a great package, with loads of excellent photos, good notes, and stellar sound quality. This is the kind of stuff we collect jazz for, and it's great to have it in stock at a nice low price! CD

New Sahib ShihabSeeds ... CD
Vogue/Rearward (Italy), 1968. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary album from saxophonist Sahib Shihab – a record that's gone onto become the birth of all things modal and club jazz in the current scene! Shihab always sounded great, no matter what the setting, but there was definitely something magical going on with this session – a one-of-a-kind energy that made his baritone and flute work sound incredibly soulful, searching, and searing – set up with a tight small combo that includes Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – a hip slice of the Clarke Boland Big Band that works beautifully together! Every tune here is wonderful, and you're bound to recognized a few covered or sampled classics over the years – on cuts that include "Seeds", "Peter's Waltz", "Who'll Buy My Dream", "Another Samba", "Jay Jay", "Uma Fita De Tres Cores", and "Mauve".

The early 70s glam masterpiece from T Rex – setting the standard for the sounds to come – and pop landmark status aside, it's probably the best album Bolan, Mickey Finn and the group ever cut! On Electric Warrior, T Rex resurrects the primitive spirit of the seediest rock of their predecessors, with a sound that's loud and anthemic. They hide sax, fluegelhorn and classical-styled strings under loud guitars, making this some of prettiest sleaze of the 70s! Classic! Includes the classics "Jeepster", "Bang A Gong (Get It On)", "Life's A Gas", "Monolith", "Planet Queen, "Girl" and more. CD

New Piero Umiliani5 Bambole Per La Luna D'Agosto (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – an incredibly groovy record from the very first note! The score's got a fantastic mix of groovy scoring, jazzy bits, and cool little vocals – spare organ lines that set the tune on most numbers, stepping basslines to set the rhythms, and scatting lyrics from I Cantori Moderni – a group who make the act of counting to 5 sound incredibly cool! The feel is quite similar to Umiliani's sublime Sweden Heaven & Hell soundtrack (and at one point, you even can hear the guy with the funny voice from "Mah Na Mah Na") – and the music is exactly the kind of wonderful stuff that first got us digging Italian film scores so many years ago. Titles include a few versions of the main theme, plus "Luna Di Piero Agosto", "Bambola Omicida", "Interludio Azzurro", "Cinque Bambole", and "Danza Jazz Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

CAM (Italy), 1968. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A rare treat from the legendary Clarke-Boland Big Band – a sublime set of Italian soundtrack numbers first recorded in 1968! The set was cut at the height of the Italian soundtrack golden age, in Italy, where the group had been working and recording heavily – making for a perfect fit of styles: the sweet and groovy compositions of talents like Nino Rota, Armando Trovajoli, Piero Piccioni, and others, handled with the fire and energy that had become the trademark of the Clarke-Boland ensemble! The set grooves very nicely – with hard-swinging versions of tracks that include "More", "Seven Golden Men", "Your Smile", "Saxology", "La Bora De La Verdad", "Canto D'Amore", and "Questi Vent Anni Miei".

New Gloria JonesVixen/Windstorm (with bonus track) ... CD
EMI/RPM (UK), 1976/1978. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A pair of overlooked albums from Gloria Jones – the woman who's probably best known for her original version of "Tainted Love", or for her relationship with Marc Bolan – but who's a heck of a great talent on these 70s albums too! Vixen has Jones working with Bolan in the studio, but has a feel that's nicely old school, especially for the time – a vibe that almost hearkens back to 60s Motown with its arrangements and overall presentation, but with some slight 70s touches too. Gloria's vocals really come out strongly with this approach – on titles that include "Stage Coach", "I Ain't Going Nowhere", "High", "Tell Me Now", "Cry Baby", "Get It On (parts 1 & 2)", and a remake of "Tainted Love". Windsong is an excellent set, too – more contemporary, but still mighty nice! Arrangements are by producer Richard Jones, as well as dancefloor maestro Paul Riser – who helps give the record a similar groove to some of his other great 70s work from earlier years – that great soaring vibe that can really push a singer like Gloria forward! The style's not really disco or club – just a fuller, more upbeat approach to soul music that shows Jones stepping nicely into adult modes. The album carries a dedication to her late paramour Marc Boland – and titles include "Hooked On You Baby", "Woman Is A Woman", "Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me", "Windstorm", "Bring On The Love", and "Blue Light Microphone". CD also features a bonus track – "Simplicity Blues". CD

Bolage (Norway), 2007. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A fresh reworking of Don Cherry's legendary Complete Communion album for Blue Note – played here by a trio of Norwegian players who are clearly inspired by the original! The lineup here is a bit different than the classic version – with Atle Nymo on tenor, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Hakon Mjaset Johansen on drums – all working in a mode that's kind of a lyrical extrapolation of Cherry's ideas – almost more poetic than Don's take on the music, but still handled with an equal degree of power. The shifting tones in Nymo's tenor are wonderful – and Flaten's bass is always appreciated in the open structure of a record like this. Titles include "And Now", "Complete Communion", "Golden Heart", "Remembrance", "Wind Sand & Stars", "Bishmallah", "Elephantasy", and "Our Feelings". CD

T Rex's phenomenal second album since moving into a heavier glam mode, following the great Electric Warrior LP – still standing firmly as one of the best purely rocking, trashy fun rock & roll albums of the 70s! Marc Bolan's roots on spacier psyche folk melodies sort of float over beefier, fuzzier, sleazier hooks – a facet of the T Rex sound that always set them apart from the pack of more rote guitar rock guys & gals, and this peak material. Includes the eternal "Metal Guru" & "Telegram Sam", more classics like the title track, "Mystic Lady", "Baby Boomerang", "Ballrooms Of Mars", "Main Man" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Clarke Boland Big BandOff Limits ... LP
Rearward (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Easily the hippest of the Clarke-Boland Big Band Records from the classic years – a set of hard grooving tracks that really pushes the envelope of their style! There's a few elements here that are different than usual – such as the presence of electric piano on a few tracks, which creates a very new sound for the group, the presence of some exotic jazz influences (perhaps borrowed from the MPS Jazz Meets The World series), and the use of some edgier compositions on the set, including work by late 60s European free-thinkers, like Eddie Louiss, Albert Mangelsdorff, and John Surman. The reed work is really incredible in this setting – and is handled by Sahib Shihab, Ronnie Scott, Billy Mitchell, and Derek Humble – all of whom seem to blow with inspiration from Surman – using tones that are far more out there than usual. Titles include "Exorcisme", "Sakara", "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Osaka Calling", "Wintersong", and "Astrorama". LP, Vinyl record album
(It's hard to tell from the image, but Rearward packaged it all in a really nice sleeve with a glossy silver metalic finish!)

New Johnny GriffinGriff 'N Bags ... LP
Rearward/Schema (Italy), 1967/1969/1998. New Copy 2LP .... Out Of Stock
Lost European jazz recordings from the vaults of producer Gigi Campi – and a stellar batch of non-US material with Johnny Griffin at the lead – working in the company of Clarke/Boland compatriots who include Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, Jimmy Woode, Idrees Sulieman, and Milt Jackson! Despite the "Bags" in the title, Milt's only on a few tracks – but that's fine with us, because Johnny Griffin is the main attraction – and the material is good small group sides with Griff soloing and trading lines with players like Sulieman and Bailey, or with some of the other players on their own. The recordings are different than the usual breed of Johnny Griffin European recordings – most of which have him soloing with a piano quartet on extended tracks. On this release, most of the tracks are short, hard, and very nicely swinging with a good hard bop groove – as with the best of Griffin's Riverside and Blue Note recordings. Kenny Clarke's on drums on nearly all the material, and he pulls out his bop chops to drive Griff's hard solos as fast as he can. The set's a great batch of work, with excellent notes and photos, and some great playing all around. Cuts include "Gamal Sady 'n Em", "Foot Patting", "Lady Heavy Bottom's Waltz", "Blues For K", "Muvaffak's Pad", "The Girl & The Turk", and "Gyson's Bag". 16 cuts in all, and none of them are from the Griffin/Davis LP on MPS (just in case you thought to ask!)

One of the rarest Johnny Griffin albums ever – a set recorded as a side project when Griff was working with the Clarke Boland Big Band – in a lineup that features some of the best members from that great ensemble! The style's a bit more laidback and soulful than other CBBB projects – more in the mode of Johnny's roots in Chicago during the 50s, but still inflected with some of the sharper touches he picked up during his 60s years in Europe. Other players here are all wonderful – and include Benny Bailey on trumpet, Sahib Shihab on baritone sax, Ake Persson on trombone, Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and both Kenny Clarke and Kenny Clare on drums – seemingly playing together on some tracks, which creates a nicely skittish rhythm in the set! Titles include "The Turk's Bolero", "Deep Eight", "A Handful Of Soul", "Foot Patting", and "Lady Heavy Bottom's Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

A definite active volcano of sound from Nobuo Hara and his excellent Sharps & Flats ensemble – a group who were to the Japanese scene of the 70s what the Clark Boland Big Band was to the European one! By that, we mean that the style here is way groovier than you might expect – definite third (if not fourth) generation big band work – full of color and life, but also with a great ear for contemporary rhythms too – thanks to some sweet guitar and keyboards in the mix. The horns are tremendous, but never overwhelming – and Takashi Shitaka provides some very thoughtful arrangements for the record – on tracks that include "White Heron", "Ondo", Sharp Curve", and "South Wind".
