Lloyd GlennPiano Stylings ... LP
Score, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $9.99
An excellent album of hard-rolling piano – part R&B, part blues, and part jazz, some of the incredible work of pianist Lloyd Glenn, a heavy handed groover from the 50s. The tracks are all short, with a rolling piano groove that's part Texas, part New Orleans. Titles include "Glenn's Guide", "Shadow Land", "Chocolate Drop", "Chica Boo", "Tiddley Winks", "Nite Flite", and "Still Water". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Score pressing with the deep groove. Cover has some wear, and masking tape along all seams.)

Chet BakerPeace ... CD
Enja/Rhino, 1982. Used ... $12.99
A pretty nice later Chet Baker album – thanks to vibes by David Friedman, who really seems to be the driving force of the set! The album was cut during the same time that Friedman himself was a leader on Enja – and it's got a very similar feel to much of Dave's work – with vibes that ring out slowly but effectively, creating a spacious backdrop for Baker's fragile, somewhat bruised solos to emerge. Bass is by Buster Williams, drums are by Joe Chambers, and 4 of the album's 6 tracks are Friedman originals – including "For Now", "Shadows", "Syzygies", and "Lament For Thelonious". CD

Bruno CanforaLa Regina Dei Tartari ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... $19.99
The reign of the Tartars is carried off here in a beautifully dramatic score from Bruno Canforna – one that echoes the mix of exotic orchestrations you'd hear in the best gladiator films of the time – but with some darker rumblings as well! The scene is a bit more Eastern than most Italian films of this type – but Canforna seems to look west, and almost creates this Hollywood sense of drama throughout – but at a really tight, stripped-down feel that's way beyond the commercial soundtracks of the American scene. Woodwinds do a lot of wonderful work here – creating simple melodies or dark shadowy backdrops – and the set features 13 tracks from the film, on CD for the first time ever! CD

New DJ ShadowSix Days (rmx feat. Mos Def, radio edit, album inst)/100 Metre Dash ... 12-inch
MCA, 2002. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $6.99
Shadow's more or less stayed away from remixes, both of other people's stuff and of his own work, but he drops a rare reworking of another installment in his fascination with number songs on this single with guest vocals by Mos Def, which we might have called a slightly odd combination before we heard it, though Mos Def vibes nicely with the dark groove of the remix, which still maintains some the flavor of the original. "100 Metre Dash" is an uptempo non-LP cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Express RisingExpress Rising (2nd album) ... CD
Numero, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 13.00
A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising – and a much-anticipated second project from funk archivist Dante Carfagna! Dante's a name you probably know best from his work writing liner notes or Wax Poetics – and helping out in countless important compilations over the years – but a decade ago, Dante dropped his first mysterious project under the Express Rising name – and finally returns here with a second album! The sound is even more enticing this time around – still drawing a bit from the world of DJ Shadow – a frequent Carfagna collaborator on archive projects – but the sound is also surprisingly warm and lyrical too – bits of beats, layers of older sounds, and these spare keyboard bits all served up together in a style that's really unique – and which avoids any of the cliches of both the downtempo world, and the instrumental hip hop scene The approach is often quite poetic, yet still soulful as well – and the whole thing's got a laidback vibe that's neither sleepy nor muddled – a really sort of special space between the grooves. Titles include "Horse Opera", "Dark Early", "Answering Echo So Near", "Winter The Heart", "A Treasure Smile", "Rooms Between Us", and "Memorabilia". CD

New Jack McDuffTobacco Road ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
A monster record by Brother Jack McDuff, and one of his best-ever – in our humble opinion! At first glance, the album appears to be just a bunch of jazz covers of standards and pop tracks – like "Tobacco Road", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "This Bitter Earth", and "Teardrops From My Eyes" – but Jack's got some help from JJ Jackson on the arrangements, and the outwardly simple tracks are twisted into these amazing grooves that have Jack wailing away in strange choppy funky ways on the organ! The whole album must be heard to be believed, and the version of "Shadow Of Your Smile", which starts with a nice break, is worth the price of the album alone! Plus, the whole thing's packaged in a very groovy cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue & green label pressing. Cover has some aging.)

New Sonic YouthEVOL ... CD
Geffen/DGC, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first great Sonic Youth album; really the first in which the group found any kind of a groove at all! Sonic Youth had been sputtering around the New York art punk scene since the early 80s, but things didn't really come together until this work of aggressively fractured genius hit the streets in '86. New drummer Steve Shelly's arrival brought a solid backdrop to Thurston Moore's and Lee Renaldo's "Sister Ray" worshipping electric squall, and it made a world of difference. The standout is "Expressway To Yr Skull", one of the great underground rock songs of the 80s – one that had the group working what could almost be called a melodic style, albeit one filled with noisy clatter. This is the point where Sonic Youth stopped being art school poseurs and started making some of the most interesting and rewarding indie rock of all time! Other tracks include "Tom Violence", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "Star Power", "Green Light", and "Bubblegum". CD

New Bruce BarthDaybreak ... CD
Savant, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sparkling piano from Bruce Barth – set up nicely in a group that also features Steve Nelson on vibes and Terell Stafford on trumpet and flugelhorn! Both players bring in some darker edges that round out the sound nicely – mixing with Barth's lyrical lines on keys, which dance magically to rhythmic accompaniment from Vincente Archer on bass and Montez Coleman on drums. Nelson's especially expressive here – and although he drops out for three of the album's ten tracks, he still really helps shape the overall vibe of the record. Titles include "Vamonos", "Moon Shadows", "Brasilia", "Daybreak", "Triste", "Tuesday's Blues", and "In The Still Of The Night". CD
