New SouliveRubber Soulive (with download) ... LP
Soulive/Royal Family, 2010. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Soulive pays homage to The Beatles – a straight up, raw & funky organ trio take on tracks from Rubber Soul (our favorite Beatles album, by the way) and other hits by The Fab Four – and it's great! There was a period from the mid 60s through the 70s in which a Beatles tribute LP , in every style of music, efforts ranging from the most sincere to the worst kind of novelty records, seemed to fall from the sky every 5 minutes. The excellent musicians and funky jazz devotees of Soulive are keenly and clearly aware of this – picking up on a pop tradition that's been nearly dormant for a couple decades. They do a fantastic job of showing how adaptable the great songs of The Beatles are, but even better than that, demonstrating Soulive's own amazing funky souls! Includes "Drive My Car", "Taxman", "Come Together", "Day Tripper", "My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Help!" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(LP comes with a coupon with a code to download Rubber Soulive plus additional live material!)

New VariousBeatles 68 – As Outras Cores Do Album Branco ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 2008. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of Beatles work by Brazilian artists in this hip series from Discobertas – a set that features groundbreaking material penned by the group in 1968 – a few tracks from famous albums, but also some real obscurities too – including some key compositions from emerging solo projects too! The range of songs here is great – way more than just Beatles' hits covered by other artists – and instead that deep contemplation of the greatness of the fab four that held Brazilian music fast in the years of the big MPB boom – which makes the album almost a return to the influence that the group had on Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and others. These recordings are all new, and the set is a huge batch of 21 titles that include "Cosmically Conscious" by Alexandre Crof, "Not Guilty" by Alvin L, "Badge" by Ramirez, "Sour Milk Sea" by Paulo Ricardo, "Lady Madonna" by A Bolha, "Singalong Junk" by Jullie, "Thingumybob" by Victor Biglione Trio, "Pepperland" by Robertino De Recife, "Step Inside Love" by Zelia Duncan, "Junk" by Regina Machado, and "Across The Universe" by Raimundo Fagner.

Barney KesselBreakfast At Tiffany's ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $14.99
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded by guitarist Barney Kessel – a sweet reworking of Henry Mancini's fabulous music for Breakfast At Tiffanys! The set's got a warm feel and more than a bit of bossa nova inspiration – similar to some of the other Kessel and Shorty Rogers projects for Reprise at the time – and the group features some wicked reed work from Bud Shank and Paul Horn, both of whom add some great color to the set – and make it way more than just another trio date from Kessel! The whole thing's wonderful – filled with favorites from the Mancini songbook – titles that include "Something For Cat", "Sally's Tomato", "Mr Yunioshi", "The Big Blowout", "Hub Caps & Tail Lights", "Breakfast At Tiffany's", "Latin Golightly", "Loose Caboose", and "Moon River Cha Cha".

Charlie MarianoAmerican In Italy ... CD
Timeless (Holland), 1996. Used .... $11.99
Warm and mellow later work from Charlie Mariano – the better side of his time in Europe, as the later years saw Charlie relaxing a bit, and going for a sound that was more traditional than his fusion of the 70s – yet still informed by some of the freedoms learned in his years away from the US. The group working with Mariano is a trio – with Andrea Pozza on piano, Ares Tavolazzi on bass, and Fabio Grandi on drums – and the tunes a mixture of Italian-themed numbers and works from Italian soundtracks, with titles that include "Il Ferroviere", "Gelsomina", "La Ragazza Di Bubue", "Sinfonia No 5", "Sinno Me Moro", and "More".

Teddy WilsonMr Wilson – The Fabulous Teddy Wilson At The Piano ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1950. New Copy .... $13.99
Teddy Wilson's definitely fabulous here – playing with a sense of poise and timing that really links together a number of different piano jazz traditions – no surprise, given how many different scenes Teddy influenced! The setting is simple – just a trio format, with either Al Hall or Al McKibbon on bass, and JC Heard or Kansas Fields on drums – but throughout the record, Wilson is at center stage – working at a level that may well be solo, as his inherent sense of rhythm and swing comes through so strongly in his own notes, there need not be any role for any other instrumentation at all! Most tunes are familiar – but as with the best of Wilson's generation, they're completely remade and remodeled into very personal expressions. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "These Foolish Things", "Rosetta", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "I Surrender Dear", "Bess You Is My Woman", and "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea". CD

VariousHarry Smith's Anthology Of American Folk Music Volume 4 – Rhythmic Changes (200 gram vinyl) ... LP
Folkways/Mississippi, 1920s/1930s/1940s. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $34.99
A landmark collection of music – the now-famous series of American Folk Music volumes put together by Harry Smith in the 50s! The work here spans the space of a few early decades of recorded music – all in styles expertly chosen by Smith, with countless examples of music that might have fallen beneath the sands of time if not otherwise included in the series! Even back at the original release of the collection, the series was a crucial bit of musical archeology – and over the ensuing space of decades, has only gone onto become even more important. This 4th volume was never issued in the 50s – but finally saw the light of day as a collection in 2000 – still from older rare records, and still very much in the best spirit of the initial volumes. Styles run the gamut from blues to roots to folk and other styles in between – and this fourth volume features work by Jesse James, Monroe Brothers, Sister Clara Hudmon, Al Hopkins & The Buckle Busters, Uncle Dave Macon, Roosevelt Graves, The Carter Family, Arthur Smith Trio, Blue Sky Boys, Memphis Jug Band, and many others! LP, Vinyl record album
(Really amazing package – 2 very heavy piece of vinyl, in a fabric-covered, heavy cardboard gatefold – even more durable than the original pressing! Limited to 2000 copies.)

New Fabrizio BossoPurple ... CD
Verve (Italy), 2013. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unusual project for this great Italian trumpeter – a set that has Fabrizio Bosso working with his Spiritual Trio – a group that features lots of Hammond organ, and plenty of tight drums! The "spiritual" in their name is a reference to an American gospel and soul tradition – one that's given plenty of play here, as most numbers are old spiritual standards from the church, reworked by Bosso into jazz instrumentals! Given the heavy use of organ, the approach is a bit like some of the Lou Bennett albums on the European scene of the 60s – with maybe a nod to the Donald Byrd albums of a spiritual nature for Blue Note. But there's also some very personal elements here too – either unusual instrumental inflections or production techniques, or some other aspects that show a greatly evolved understanding of this mode in jazz. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine", "Purple", "A Little 3/4 For God & Co", "Dreams Come True", "Wishy Washy", "Total Praise", "A Change Is Gonna Come", and "Wade In The Water". CD

New Paquito D'Rivera & Trio CorrenteSong For Maura ... CD
Sunnyside, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Paquito D'Rivera playing here in a beautiful Brazilian mode – one that recalls the style of older choro recordings, but which still has some of Paquito's Cuban soul as well! Clarinet is the most effective instrument in this setting, and is used often, with some wonderfully deep inflections – but D'Rivera also plays some nice alto sax as well – really soaring out in the setting of the Trio Correte – a group that features Fabio Torres on piano, Paulo Paulelli on bass, and Edu Ribeiro on drums! The vibe of the record is wonderful – never forced or hokey, and handled in a really respectful way – at a level that reminds us a lot of the best instrumental productions from the Brazilian Biscoito Fino label. Titles include "Ceu E Mar", "Song For Maura", "Chorinho Par Voce", "For Leny", "Tem Do", "Recife Blues", and "Saidera". CD

New Jazz A La Mode TrioLess Is More ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A sweet Italian combo, and one who's got a very classic soul jazz sort of feel – a 60s-styled blend of Hammond and tenor that's mighty nice, and very much in the spirit of the vintage look of the cover! The record's got a great no-nonsense feel – just the right production to fit the group's soaring organ lines and hard-biting saxophone – spun out here over a host of classics from 60s, plus a few tasty originals too. The combo features Fabio Nobile on drums – who you might know from previous work in a more contemporary style – plus Sam Gambarini on Hammond, Alessandro Scala on tenor, and some guest trumpet from Marco Tamburini. Titles include "Bus Ride", "Money In The Pocket", "Fire Eater", "Funkallero", "Mambo In", "This I Dig Of You", and "Alligator Boogaloo". CD

New FableGet The L Outta Here ... CD
RecordPlex, 1975. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Fierce sounds from Fable – a Canadian trio who were contemporaries of Rush, but who work here with a much ballsier sound overall! The drums are power-driven, as are the guitar riffs – and the vocals have some slight bluesy inflections that gives them a nice sinister edge. Titles include "Battle Of The Kneon Knights", "Kacheena", "We'll Find A Way", "Lady Of The Night", "Cue Stick", and "The Tramp". CD
