Roy BurrowesJamaican Jazz Crusaders (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
JMA/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $24.99
An amazing little record – not just for the music itself, which is inherently great – but also for its straight jazz presentation of players you might know in more of a reggae-based setting! The album's a smoking set of hardbop numbers, played with plenty of soul – by a combo billed as the Jamaican Jazz Crusaders – featuring Roy Bubbles Burrows on trumpet, Ernst Ranglin on guitar, Roland Alphonso on tenor, Aubrey Adams on piano, Harold Williams on bass, and Carl McLeod on drums. The format's a bit unusual, in that the album's bracketed by interviews and introductions from Jamaican jazz DJ Nevil Willoughby – but in the core are some great performances, with very inventive arrangements, especially in the way Ranglin's guitar is used – on titles that include "The Highest Mountain", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Split Kick", and "Round Midnight".

Clutchy HopkinsWalking Backwards (CD & DVD) ... CD
Ubiquity, 2008. New Copy CD & DVD ... $7.99 18.98
Tripped out tracks with a funky cinematic feel – a great new project with mysterious origins – supposedly the work of the "mysterious Clutchy Hopkins", but really just the efforts of a batch of underground beatmakers! There's a spare, spacious approach here that almost reminds us of the energy that we first felt in DJ Shadow's groundbreaking work of a decade before – a similar love of gritty, organic source material – and an ear for putting it together with lots of dark twists and turns that balance nicely between classic funk and current hip hop production sensibilities. The flavor of each tune changes nicely – making the album way more than just a cliched collection of beats – and the set also features guest performances by Shawn Lee and Darondo. Titles include "Sound Of The Ghost", "Love Of A Woman", "Para Los Ninos", "Swap Meet Me At The Corner", "Alla Oscar", "Percy On The One", "Good Omen", "Rocktober", and "Horny Tickle". Features a bonus DVD that attempts to support the Clutchy Hopkins myth! CD
(There is no indication, but we are assuming that the DVD is NTSC format, Region 1.)

Djalma FerreiraDrink Em Sao Paolo Etc – Anos 60 (7CD set) ... CD
Discos Drink/Discobertas (Brazil), 1960s. New Copy 7 CDs ... $78.99
Totally cool, totally wonderful – and a massive set of hardly-heard work from Brazilian keyboardist Djalma Ferreira! Djalma's a name that's not nearly as well-known in the states as Walter Wanderley – but he got his start well before Walter, working in some 50s modes that were mighty darn cool – before exploding even more strongly here on a sublime set of albums from the 60s! Djalma's got a sense of playfulness about his keyboard work – always changing up not just his phrasing of the notes, but also the settings of the organ as well – creating these cool sounds and groovy notes that explode out differently on each new tune – in ways that go far past the usual bossa organ modes, and bring in a host of other Brazilian styles too. The range of sounds in the set is breathtaking – and the package begins the decade with albums cut with the Milionarios Do Ritmo – including the albums Convite Ao Drink (1960) and Drink Em Sao Paolo (1961) – then moves onto some with larger arrangements – the records Combinacao Insuperavel (1962) and Baile De Formatura (1962). Things then swing into the groovy Week End In Rio (1964), the sublime Brazilliance Of Djalma (1965), and the rare US album Help Yourself To The Brazilliance Of Djalma (1969). All albums come with original artwork and great sound – all on CD for the first time ever! CD

Joe PassFor Django (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Around October 8, 2014
An album dedicated to the great Django Reinhardt – but one that also comes across with plenty of west coast touches! The format is somewhat Django-esque – with lead guitar work from Joe Pass, plus rhythm guitar support from John Pisano – but the groove's also a bit less swing-heavy than some of Django's classics, and there's a lighter, breezier approach here that's very much in the mode of other Pass records from the 60s – at least the small group ones! Tracks include "Django", "For Django", "Fluer D'Ennui", "Django's Castle", and "Nuages". CD

New Johnny Guitar WatsonJohnny Guitar Watson & The Family Clone/Bow Wow ... CD
DJM/Cherry Red (UK), 1981/1994. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two unusual later sets from Johnny Guitar Watson – back to back on a single CD! Family Clone is a record issued with a title that was a bit of a joke – as Johnny Guitar Watson plays all instruments on the album himself, not a "family" group – but the joke stops there, as the record's every bit as great as any of Watson's classics from the time! And there's no "clone" in the grooves at all – no nod to more popular styles by other artists of the time – because Johnny keeps things unique throughout, always working that undeniable Watson charm alongside some wicked guitar and super-sly vocals! Keyboards figure in as much as guitar on the record, and there's some really great laidback numbers that almost have a Shuggie Otis-like approach to soul. Titles include "What Is Love", "Family Clone", "Forget The Joneses", "Clone Information", "Voodoo What You Do", and "Come & Dance With Me". Bow Wow is one of the last full recordings from Johnny Guitar Watson – and a surprisingly great little set that still stands strongly with some of his last funky records from the early 80s! The vibe is slightly contemporary – with some touches of 90s R&B in the production – but Watson's vocals still have that wonderful sense of charm that glides along with his sweet guitar lines – in ways that are plenty great, even amidst the changed-up rhythms. Titles include "Bob Wow", "Johnny G Is Back", "My Funk", "Time Change", "Hook Me Up", and "I Don't Think So". CD
