New Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassChristmas Album ... CD
Shout Factory/BMG, 1968. Used ... $4.99
A beautiful Holiday classic from Herb – recorded for A&M during his glory years, and done in the core Tijuana Brass style, but with some added arrangements on voices and strings by Shorty Rogers! The album's worth it alone for Herb's great take on the Bacharach groover "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but it also includes the tasty track "Las Mananitas", plus the holiday favorites "Winter Wonderland", "Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song", "Sleigh Ride", "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" and "Jingle Bell Rock". 10 tracks in all, the perfect backdrop for the holiday office party!

Cool KidsBake Sale EP ... CD
Chocolate Industries, 2008. Used ... $2.99
Classic minded but truly fresh duo hip hop from the Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks, aka the Cool Kids – billed as an EP, but a pretty generous one at 10 tracks and more than a half hour in length – a strong hint that these Kids are going to make a huge splash! The Cool Kids produce themselves, thank you very much – and do so with love for the spare, minimalist synthy funk beats that most of the mainstream beatmakers deal in – but no one else is doing it quite this way. The rhymes are spun with an easygoing, finessed delivery and they fool around with some delirious tape speed deviations for the fun and funk of it. Pre-release hype be damned, the Cool Kids are the real thing! 10 tracks in all: "What Up Man", "One Two", "Mikey Rocks", "88", "What It Is", "Black Mags", "A Little Bit Cooler", "Gold And A Pager", "Bassment Party" and "Jingling".

Alaide CostaAfinal (remastered edition) ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1963. Used ... $6.99
Sad and dreamy early 60s work by Alaide Costa – one of the early divas of bossa nova! The album's one of Alaide's most solid from the time – and features backing either by a small combo led by Cesar Camargo, or by a larger group led by Maestro Lindolfo Gaya, the force behind more great Brazilian vocal sessions than we could ever hope to name! Alaide's voice is wonderful – kind of in a compressed emotional mode that's a striking contrast from some of her more overblown contemporaries – and it works well next to the lightly jazzy backings of the album. Titles include "Afinal", "E Agora?", "Igrejinha", "Ouvi Tua Voz", "Estorinha", "Como E Gosto De Voce", and "Manha Chegou". CD

Benny GolsonNew Time, New 'Tet ... CD
Concord, 2009. Used ... $3.99
Benny Golson's one of those players who never lets us down – and here, into his 80th year in on the planet, the man's still burning strongly and soulfully! The set's got a very solid, put-together sort of sound – the quality that's always made us seek out Golson albums of any vintage, amazed at the depth of feeling and richness of creativity that Benny can bring to even a simple sort of date. This one's definitely a cut above, though – self-produced by Golson, and featuring a lineup with Eddie Henderson on trumpet and flugelhorn, Steve Davis on trombone, Mike LeDonne on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Carl Allen on drums – all rock-solid players who help Benny flesh out his sound beautifully here, reaching some nice sensitive points at times, then sliding back into warmly soulful grooves. Al Jarreau guests with vocals on a version of "Whisper Not" – and other titles include "Verdi's Voice", "Uptown Afterburn", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", "From Dream To Dream", "Grove's Groove", "L'Adieu", and "Love Me In A Special Way".

New Ice CubePredator ... CD
Priority/Lench Mob, 1992. Used ... $4.99
Cube's last truly great full length, from 1992, when he was leaving the gangsta stuff behind and had grown into an incredibly sharp social commentator and ghetto portrait painter. The rhymes, and even the liner note acknowledgements ("Ice Cube wishes to acknowledge white America's continued commitment to the silence and oppression of black men. . .") are wickedly incisive to this day. This could be his finest hour. Includes the singles "It Was A Good Day", "Check Yo Self" and "Wicked", "Gangsta's Fairytale 2", "Dirty Mack" and "Now I Gotta Wet'cha". Production by DJ Pooh, Muggs, Sir Jinx, and others. CD

Dexter StorySeasons ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful project from the contemporary underground scene in LA – a record that shares lots of energy and musicians with recordings by Build An Ark and Life Force Trio! Dexter Story's the main force behind the record, but the set's a strongly collaborative effort – and features keyboards from Mark De Clive-Lowe, flute from Derf Reklaw, strings from Mighel Atwood-Ferguson, vocals from Dwight Trible, and key studio work from Carlos Nino! Story's vocals and overall conception are wonderful – soaring and soulful, with some slight cosmic touches that give the record a bit more crackle than related projects – a sound that's still steeped in spiritual jazz elements, yet which also really opens up as the set rolls on. There's a wonderful sense of variety to the tracks – due to the shifting lineup – but the overall feel is still very cohesive, and an amazing demonstration of Story's bold musical vision. Titles include "Seasons", "Into The Hour", "Love Force Trio (part 1)", "Underway", "Water Bearer", "Paddle Boat", "Bloop Drip", "Gyre Song", "As Is", "God Sun", and "Suijin". CD

VariousChristmas Remixed – Holiday Classics Regrooved ... CD
Six Degrees, 2003. Used ... $7.99
Christmas past meets Christmas future – in a very groovy set of holiday tunes that follow in the Verve Remixed tradition! The set takes older recordings of holiday favorites – mostly by singers of the 50s and 60s – and sets them to new beats, bass, and samples – pumping up the tracks considerably, but still keeping all the charm of the original vocals! Titles include "Jingle Bells (Dan The Automator rmx)" by Dean Martin, "Happy Holidays (Beef Wellington rmx)" by Bing Crosby, "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year (A Shift rmx)" by Andy Williams, "Baby It's Cold Outside (Mulato Beat rmx)" by Louis Armstrong, "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm (Stuhr rmx)" by Kay Starr, "Winter Wonderland (Rise Ashen's Brazilian beach mix)" by Johnny Mercer, "Merry Christmas Baby (Mno rmx)" by Charles Brown, and "The Christmas Song (Michael Kessler open fire mix)" by Mel Torme.

New VariousSalsoul Presents – Definitive 12 Inch Masters Vol 1 ... CD
Suss'd/Salsoul (UK), Late 70s. Used 2CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A massive batch of the hard grooving, prime disco (and pre-disco) era greatness from Salsoul – a long overdue 2 CD collection of the glorious 12-inch mixes of these classic tunes! Salsoul cuts have been collected and re-collected often on compilations throughout the years – but this set gets it right. It's filled with the most in demand original 12-inch mixes – in many cases the original (re not the radio) mixes that tore open the club floors back in the day, and continue to do so now! Tracks include "You're Just The Right Size" (original mix) by Salsoul Orchestra, "Dreamin'" (original Norman Harris mix) by Loleatta Holloway, "Ten Percent" (original Tom Moulton mix) by Double Exposure, "Doctor Love" (original Tom Moulton mix) by First Choice, "The Beat Goes On & On" (Jim Burgess 12" mix) by Ripple, "Jingo" by Candido (original David Rodriguez 12" mix), "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (Larry Levan 12" mix) by Inner Life, "Heartbreaker" (original Shep Pettibone 12" mix) and more!

New Dean MartinMaking Spirits Bright ... CD
Capitol, Late 50s/1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Given Dino's talent for celebration, there's nobody else we'd rather spend Christmas with – a fact that's confirmed by this great little set! The package features 14 Holiday tunes – all recorded by Dino during his classic years at Capitol, and done in that laidback and boozy style that made just about any tune a pleasure when sung by Dean. Titles include "A Marshmallow World", "Jingle Bells", "Blue Christmas", "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm", "Winter Wonderland", "Let It Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow", "White Christmas", "Silent Night", "Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer", and "Baby It's Cold Outside".

New Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Sammy Davis Jr.Christmas With The Rat Pack ... CD
EMI, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ring a ding, ding, Merry Christmas! As many holiday recordings that the boys made, together and in their individual careers, it's a bit of a surprise that Capitol is only now releasing a holiday Rat compilation, but here it is! The material ranges from Frank and Dean's widely available late 50s solo work, to relatively obscure output from a decade or so down the road, with a couple warm, cozy winter tunes that are not specifically written for the holidays, but make great brandy-sipping fireplace tunes. You get Frank's solo honey croon on "Mistletoe And Holly", "The First Noel", and "The Chirstmas Waltz", Dean's similar, but boozier approach on "Silver Bells", "Peace On Earth/Silent Night", and "White Christmas", Sammy making his magic on "The Christmas Song", "Jingle Bells", and the previously unreleased "Christmas Time All Over The World", and plenty more of each party. 21 tunes in all (whew!) and maybe best of all, "A Marshmallow World" and "Auld Lang Syne" – two live gems from Dean's 1967 and 1970 TV specials when the crew were at their hard/easy living, boozy, now sounding best!

New VariousChristmas Cocktails – Hi Fi Holiday Cheer From Santa's Pad ... CD
Capitol/Ultra Lounge, 1950s/1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy stuff! This 18 track set is about the hippest easiest Christmas compilation you can find – and it's filled with gems pulled from the Ultra Lounge end of the Capitol/EMI catalog! There's a mixture of vocal tunes, easy instrumental tunes, and even a few hip jazz numbers – and titles include "Christmas Kisses" by Ray Anthony, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" by Jimmy McGriff, "Winter Wonderland" by Peggy Lee, "Christmas Is" by Lou Rawls, "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" by Dean Martin, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus/Jingle Bells Bossa Nova" by Eddie Dunstedter, "Cha Cha All The Way" by Capitol Studio Orchestra, "The Nutcracker Suite" by Les Brown, and "Christmas Trumpets" by Ray Anthony.

New Al HirtSound Of Christmas (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Friday Music, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Al Hirt horn, set loose on a host of Holiday classics – all set to some wonderfully bouncy backings by the trio of Dick Hyman, Marty Manning, and Jack Pleis! Al's at his brash best here – especially on the album's sublime leadoff number "Nutty Jingle Bells" – a Hyman reworking of the classic, done with fast-riffing guitar, blasting trumpet, and even a bit of gruff vocals from Hirt! Other numbers are pretty jaunty too, and always have Al's trumpet out front – either on straight tracks, or some groovy medley numbers too. In addition to "Nutty Jingle Bells", the set also features versions of "Silver Bells", "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer", "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus", "O Holy Night", and "What Child Is This". CD also features bonus tracks – "Hooray For Santa Claus" and "White Christmas". CD

New Gladys Knight & The PipsThat Special Time Of Year (original pressing) ... CD
Columbia/Sony, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although recorded a bit later than some of Gladys Knight's better-known Holiday work, this album's actually our favorite of the bunch – because it's got a looser, more soul-based feel that gets beyond some of the overdone modes of earlier Christmas work! Gladys is clearly trying to get more Christmas play on the radio with this one – and avoids the serious modes of earlier Holiday records by going for straightforward tunes that have a nicely modern soul approach to the arrangements. Backings are done by Gene Page, McKinley Jackson, and Larry Farrow – and a few tunes feature duets with Shanga or Johnny Mathis. Titles include "This Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "Jingle Bells", "That Special Time Of Year", "When A Child Is Born", "I Believe", and "It's The Happiest Time Of Year". CD

Ultra Lounge/Capitol, 1950s/1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Groovy Christmas! This set's got 18 loungey and jazzy tunes plucked from the vaults of Capitol/EMI and related labels – plus a few even groovier "surprise bonus tracks"! The whole thing's very much in the hipster Ultra Lounge style – and tracks include "Jingle Bell Rock" by Wayne Newton, "Frosty The Snowman" by The Ventures, "Christmas Island" by Bob Atcher & The Dinning Sisters, "Exotic Night" by Martin Denny, "Happy Holidays" by Peggy Lee, "Sleigh Ride/Santa Claus' Party" by Ferrante & Teicher, "Warm December" by Julie London, "The Merriest" by June Christy, "The Christmas Waltz" by Nancy Wilson, "Snowfall" by George Shearing, and lots more!

New VariousHipsters' Holiday – Vocal Jazz & R&B Classics ... CD
Rhino, Mid 40s/1950s/Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty cool Christmas compilation – with none of the sappy stuff that usually gets in the way! This one's all-cool, all-hip all the way through – and it's got a mix of jazzy tunes that's bound to liven up any holiday party that's had a dose of way too much Johnny Mathis or Bing Crosby! Tracks include "Five Pound Box Of Money" by Pearl Bailey, "Be Bop Santa Claus" by Babs Gonzalez, "Christmas Spirit" by Julia Lee, "Hello Mr New Year" by The Coolbreezers, "Zat You, Santa Claus" by Louis Armstrong, "Blue Xmas" by Miles Davis & Bob Dorough, "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus" by Mabel Scott, "Jingle Bells" by Leo Watson, "Santa Baby" by Eartha Kitt, and "Santa Done Got Hip" by The Marquees. 18 tracks in all!

New VariousSnow – The Get Easy Christmas Collection ... CD
Universal (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Waaaaaaay more than a collection of Holiday Music – simply one of the grooviest sets we've heard in a long long time! The compilation is the 5th in the stellar Get Easy series, and it more than lives up to previous volumes with a wealth of hard to find Christmas tunes, served up in a late 60s glimmer that's as seductive as its lovely package! There's loads of wonderful tunes on here that we wouldn't have known of otherwise, interspersed with a few more familiar numbers – all rolling together in a joyous blend of jazz, funk, and groovy – one you'll be going back to all year long, despite the weather outside. Titles include "Sleigh Ride" by Soulful Strings, "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" by Burt Bacharach, "Snow" by Claudine Longet, "Christmas Love" by Rotary Connection, "You're All I Want For Christmas" by Brook Benton, "What Christmas Means To Me" by Stevie Wonder, "Ten Below" by Chris & Peter Allen, "Jing Jing A Ling" by Honey & The Bees, "Purple Snowflakes" by Marvin Gaye, "White Christmas" by Jimmy Smith, "This Christmas" by Donny Hathaway, "It's Christmas Time Once Again" by Brian Hyland, and the super-rare Scott Walker tune "Winter Night"!

New Shel SilversteinBoy Named Sue & His Other Country Songs ... CD
RCA/Water, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the big Johnny Cash recording of "Boy Named Sue" – and it features Shel singing that famous tune, plus a host of other original country material – all of which is quite different than the usual songs coming from Nashville in the 60s! Production was done by Chet Atkins – who must have flipped a wig recording this one – and Shel's raspy, nasally voice is surprisingly at home in the professional Nashville backings. The record's a great leftfield country relic from the 60s – and titles include "Boy Named Sue", "Dirty Ol Me", "Alimoney", "Someday's Here", "Time", "Comin After Jinny", and "Daylight Dreamer". CD
