GQFace To Face (with bonus track) ... CD
Arista/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... Around December 15, 2014
Wonderfully solid grooving from GQ – an album issued a few years after their bigger hits, but it's still plenty great and just as worthy! The trio have a wonderful way of laying out a sweet harmony without getting too cloying, nor too poppy – and the best cuts here glide along beautifully in a mellow or midtempo mode! There's a tightness here that reminds us of Tavares or The Main Ingredient at their best – but a bit more modern soul overall, and often with a very slight nod towards the growing 80s groove mode. Titles include "Face To Face", "I Love (The Skin You're In)", "Sad Girl", "Shy Baby", "Shake", "You've Got The Floor", "Dark Side Of The Sun", and "Boogie Shoogie Feelin". This edition from Funky Town Grooves includes the bonus track "Try Smurfin'". CD

New GQDisco Nights ... LP
Arista, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not just disco nights, but some great mellow moments too – a wonderfully well-rounded classic from this great quartet – as tight and groovy as it is cool and classy! By the time of this debut, the group had already had plenty of 70s soul experience as The Rhythm Makers – a previous name for the lineup, and a combo with a great reputation for dancefloor grooves that were tight, but never too uptight – kind of the best funky soul styles of the time! This album definitely continues that tradition, with a sound that's leaner than most mainstream disco of the time – and really well put-together, in a way that also has them slowing down to hit some great ballads and mellower steppers too. The album features the massive disco title cut – "Disco Nights" – and a beautiful reworking of Billy Stewart's classic "I Do Love You" – with a sound that's faithful to the original, but a sweet stepping groove that's made it a favorite for years! Other cuts include "Boogie Oogie Oogie", "Spirit", "Make My Dream A Reality", "It's Your Love", and "Wonderful". LP, Vinyl record album

New Hal RubensteinGentry Man – A Guide For The Civilized Male – The Best Of Gentry Magazine 1951 to 1957 ... Book
HarperCollins, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great guide to male culture, circa 1955 – served up in images and articles from Gentry – which was a postwar magazine in the realm of GQ and Esquire! The book is beautifully done, with full page reproductions of the best features from the magazine's 22 issues – all done with a great sense of design, cool typography, and loads and loads of very cool images! Unlike other books on men's magazines, which usually tell the story and show pictures, but never offer up the whole thing – this volume really gets at the heart of Gentry, with over 250 pages that are a lot more striking and fun to read than some fragile, yellowing old issues. Loads of great articles on cars and men's fashion – plus more on eating, drinking, and even gambling! Book

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".

New Wadada Leo Smith & TumoOccupy The World ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2013. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An impressive larger project from Wadada Leo Smith – one that features his full compositions played by the Tumo ensemble of Finland – with a range of sounds, tones, and textures that's simply breathtaking! All the spacious, organic elements of Smith's smaller-group work is still in place – but the larger array of players really takes the approach to the next dimension – reaching territory that Leo and contemporaries would never hit on their own – with a depth of feeling and expression that really warrants the double length of the set. In addition to Smith's own trumpet – which solos on most tracks – the set also features a long bass solo from John Lindberg, plus reeds from Juhani Aaltonen, Fredrik Ljungqvist, and Mikko Innanen – plus harlp from Iro Haarla, guitars from Kalle Kalima and Mikko Iivanainen, and trumpet and electronics from Verneri Pohjola. Titles include "The Bell 2", "Queen Hatshepsut", "Mount Kilimanjaro", and 'Crossing On A Southern Road". CD
