New Ali Akbar Khan/Ravi Shankar/Ustad Amir KhanPsychedelic India ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $8.99
Classic ragas from Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Kahn and Ustad Amir Khan on this compilation from El UK! The earlier material on Psychedelic India predates the psychedelic rock movement by nearly a decade, but the trance inducing sitar atmosphere is obviously an important precursor, and always amazing and worth revisiting! Although the set features just 4 pieces, they're long ones – 79 minutes of music: Includes "Raga Palas Kafi" and "Raga Bilashkani Todi" featuring Ravi Shankar on sitar and Ali Akbar Khan on sarod, "Raga Marwa" by Ustad Amir Khan", plus Ravi Shankar's "Raga Madhu-Kauns".

Chaka KhanChaka ... CD
Warner/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
The classic late 70s solo debut by Chaka Khan – one that made Chaka a major star, and deservedly so! This beautiful album showed that she could stand very well on her own two feet without the help of Rufus, thank you. Of course, she's got some fantastic help from Arif Mardin, who works as much magic with Chaka here as he'd done with Aretha Franklin a decade before. Includes the original version of "I'm Every Woman", which still sound great to this day – plus "Love Has Fallen On Me", "Roll Me Through The Rushes", the nice "We Got The Love" duet with George Benson, "Some Love", "Life Is A Dance", "A Woman In A Man's World", "I Was Made To Love Him" and "Sleep On It".

Chaka KhanWhat Cha' Gonna Do For Me ... LP
Warner, 1981. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Wonderful stuff – and despite what you might think about her work with Rufus, we've always felt that Chaka Khan was equally good, if not better, during the early years of her solo career. This album's a totally solid soul effort, with production by Arif Mardin that's right up there with his best work for Atlantic – and a very catchy batch of cuts, including the hit "Any Old Sunday", plus "We Got Each Other", "We Can Work It Out", "Night Moods", and "Father He Said". Also features the cut "I Know You, I Live You", a big Chicago house cut from the old days. And hey, she went to school around the corner from our old office! LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Elektra/Rhino, 1982. Used ... $14.99
A really unique album for Chaka Khan – one in which she teams up with a host of jazz artists to craft a classic-styled set of vocals! Given that Chaka was at the height of her 80s groove solo career at the time of this one, the move is a surprising one – but also a great chance for Chaka to show that she has a lot more to offer than just pop chops, as she sounds pretty darn great scatting on these classic jazz numbers. And as proof that the set was definitely a serious jazz effort, Chaka's got a great lineup on the album – a group that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, Chick Corea on piano, and Lenny White on drums. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "All Of Me", "Take The A Train", "Hire Wire", "The Aerialist", and "I Hear Music". Expanded CD features an alternate of "All Of Me" and the track "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" – as well as good notes and an interview. CD

A very cool set of tracks written by Ustad Vilayat Khan – for this early Merchant-Ivory production that starred Rita Tushingham and Michael York. All tracks are sitar-tabla based – some short, some quite long – save for one number that has vocals by Michael York. Titles include "Tom's Boat Song", "Train Journey", "The Pupil & His Master – Rag Bilawai", "The Haunted Palace", "Tom's Arrival", and "Concert In The Haunted Palace – Rag Yamani".

RufusRufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today! Of course, one of the reasons for that is Chaka Khan's incredible vocals – caught here at a prime early point, and very nicely set against some warm electric keyboards and tight groovy guitars – which provide a groove that's live and spontaneous, and never too forced – just the right kind of energy to work perfectly with her approach to the lyrics, without any of the too-polished modes you'd fine from copycat groups trying to fake a sound like this. Rufus had been with Chaka for years by this point – fusing together a sublime blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock – a sound they forged woodshedding in Chicago in the early days, let loose in perfect studio territory on the west coast of the 70s. The whole thing's a classic – and titles include "Jive Talking", "Sweet Thing", "Fools Paradise", "Circle", "Everybody Has An Aura", and "On Time". CD

The set dips back into the ABC recordings by the group, and features tracks from the years 1974 to 1979. Titles include "You Got The Love", "Sweet Thing", "Hollywood", "Tell Me Something Good", "Do You Love What You Feel", "Stay", and "Once You Get Started". CD

A stone cold classic, and probably the best record Rufus or Chaka ever did! By this point, they've honed their soul style into a nice jazzy groove, and Chaka's voice is in total control – without too much pyrotechnics, and with a nice mellow sound. Includes the classic hit "Hollywood", plus "Slow Screw Against The Wall", "Close The Door", and "Everlasting Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rufus featuring Chaka KhanCamouflage ... LP
MCA, 1981. Very Good ... $0.99
An under-appreciated gem by Rufus – the group's last album before Chaka left to depart on her successful early 80s solo career – and a nice one nonetheless! There's a trace of 80s groove in the mix – especially on the bass and percussion – but these elements are handled with all the warmth and jazziness that we've come to love from the group's 70s recordings – and Chaka's voice, as always, keeps things strongly soulful no matter what the setting! The album's overflowing with catchy groovers – and titles include "Secret Friend", "Jigsaw", "Better Together", "Music Man", "True Love", "Quandry", "Lilah", "Sharing The Love", and "Losers In Love".

A classic early album by Chaka Khan and the jazzy soul group Rufus – and the record that pushed them over the top, chartwise! The album features their huuuuuge hit "Tell Me Something Good", a simply incredible workout that was the perfect mainstream showcase for Chaka's great voice, made even better by the use of one of those cool Peter Frampton-vocoder thingies. The album also features some other excellent material that's a bit more restrained, and more in the band's usual jazz funk mode – like "Ain't Nothing But A Maybe", "You Got The Love", "Smokin Room", and "Sideways".

A big album for Chaka – as her hits of the late 70s and 1980s are remixed into new club versions for the 90s – although oddly, those versions, which were "fresh" at the time, sound almost a bit dated next to some of the originals! Remixers include Hank Shocklee & Eric Sadler, Winston Jones, Paul Simpson, Clivilles & Cole, Frankie Knuckles, Tony Humphries, and David Morales – and titles include "Life Is A Dance", "I Know You, I Live You", "This Is My Night", "Ain't Nobody", "Clouds", "I Feel For You", "Slow Dancin", "I'm Every Woman", and "One Million Kisses".

Chaka Khan on Warner Brothers – the wonderful second chapter of her career, when she fully broke away from Rufus, and became an amazing solo act on her own! All the records here are classics, and really take Khan who a whole new level – often working with production and arrangements from the legendary Arif Mardin, who did for Chaka in the 80s what he'd done for Aretha Franklin in earlier years. The groove is sophisticated and soulful – and even some of the more pop-oriented cuts still come off great – thanks to vocals from Chaka that really ring out with a hell of a lot of power and pride. The package features five full albums – Chaka, Naughty, What Cha Gonna Do For Me, Chaka Khan, and I Feel For You – all packaged in small LP-styled sleeves! CD

New Khan JamalDrum Dance To The Motherland ... CD
Dogtown/Eremite, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare early session from vibist Khan Jamal – recorded with his Philly-based Creative Arts Ensemble collective! The group follows strongly in the spirit of similar combos from Chicago and St Louis – particularly the latter – and Jamal's group is working here in a mode that's initiated by the original sonic experiments of the AACM, but taken to deeper, more organic levels. Given Khan's later work, the thing that's most surprising here is the sound texture of the record – because although seemingly improvised, there's also a greater feel towards a whole here – a spacey, ethereal quality that reminds us of some of Sun Ra's most creative moments. Jamal plays vibes, marimba, and clarinet – and the rest of the group includes Monette Sudler on guitar and percussion, Alex Ellison on drums, Dwight James on drums and clarinet, and Billy Mills on both electric and acoustic bass. Although not overly electric, there's a shimmering quality to the music here – as if the production abstracted the original acoustic sound with weird echo and other techniques! Titles include "Inner Peace", "Drum Dance", "Cosmic Echoes", and "Breath Of Life". CD

Vocals from Omar and a mix from 4Hero – two London elements we've loved for years – both of which make the single a stunner! The single spins out brilliantly – and also features this very spiritual tenor part in the middle – a kind of cosmic London vibe that almost takes us back to our favorite sounds from Nathan Haines a decade ago! Nicola Conte makes real magic with "There Is Something New" – a cut that really makes the single an all-star affair! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Arista All StarsBlue Montreux ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet session of 70s electric jazz – recorded as a unique live all-star outing by a group of Arista's best jazz players at the time! The group's an octet, but plays together in differing formations throughout the record – with Warren Bernhardt on keyboards, Michael Brecker on saxes, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Steve Jordan on drums, Steve Khan and Larry Coryell on guitars, Tony Levin on bass, and Mike Maineri on vibes – the last of which really make for some of the best numbers on the album! Bernhardt's keyboards are pretty good too – stepping out with a spacious, fluid feel that's never jamming – and more in the open-ended Bob James side of the spectrum, although his overall sound is a lot different than Bob's! Titles include "Blue Montreux", "Rocks", "I'm Sorry", "Magic Carpet", "Buds", "Floating", and "The Virgin & The Gypsy". CD

George BensonIn Your Eyes ... LP
Warner, 1983. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Sweetly jazzy soul from George Benson – a key classic from his great run at Warner Brothers Records, and the kind of record that George did better than anyone else at the time! Back in the 60s, we'd never have guessed that Benson's sweetly crackling vocals would dominate popular jazz more than his great guitar work – but hearing George here, it's clear that his soul work could easily outshine his guitar, especially when set up in a package like this! Atlantic soul maestro Arif Mardin produced, and as with his Chaka Khan productions for Warner at the time, he gives Benson a clean, clear modern style that's certainly pop, but also a lot less cluttered and clunky than modes used with other artists at the time. George is mostly on the vocal tip for the set, and Kashif helps out on one track – no surprise, given that Kashif was soon to walk down the path that Benson had started with his first few vocal albums in the 70s. Titles include "Love Will Come Again", "Use Me", "Late At Night", "In Search Of A Dream", "Lady Love Me", "In Your Eyes", and "Never Too Far To Fall". LP, Vinyl record album

The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

The set's got a tight sound that puts Coryell's guitar in the forefront, but which also respects contributions from members that include Gerry Brown on drums, John Lee on bass, Mike Mandel on keyboards, and Terumasa Hino on trumpet – all coming together with a tightness that's every bit the best part of mainstream 70s fusion. The record's also got some great guest work too – including appearances from David Sanborn on alto, Michael Brecker on tenor, Randy Brecker on trumpet, and Steve Khan on acoustic guitar – and titles include "Titus", "Pyramids", "Yin Yang", "Aspects", "Ain't It Is", and "Woman Of Truth & Future".

An early 80s gem from Aretha Franklin – one of the best of her years at Arista Records, thanks to solid help in the studio from the mighty Arif Mardin! Mardin's in perfect form here – the same blend of older soul and jazzier, more sophisticated styles that he was also bringing to Chaka Khan at the time – although Franklin's arguably more deserving of his talents, given her long relationship with the producer! There's a full, mature feel here – one that really gets Aretha back in gear as a singer, and shows off her talents to a new generation in new ways – yet all without trying too hard for a crossover hit. Tunes include a few originals by Franklin, and titles include "Kind Of Man", "Whole Lot Of Me", "Love All The Hurt Away", "You Can't Always Get What You Want", "It's My Turn", "There's A Star For Everyone", and "Hold On I'm Coming".

Renee GeyerIt's A Man's Man's World ... CD
RCA/Mushroom (Australia), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the funkiest, most soulful albums to come from Australia in the 70s – and the crowning achievement of singer Renee Geyer! Renee's got a style that makes her a blue-eyed equivalent of Chaka Khan during her years with Rufus – and the band here shares a very similar style, with an ability to play hard and funky at all the right moments – then lay back into a sweeter soul vibe on the mellower cuts! And yes, Geyer draws plenty from the American scene of the time – but she's also a real original, and comes across here with a sense of presence that's undeniable. The album is easily one of Renee's best, and was the start in launching her on a huge career in 70s Australia. Titles include the classic original "Love the Way You Love" – plus "Do Your Thing", "The Tell Me Of An Uncloudy Day", "What Do I Do On Sunday Morning", "Once In A Lifetime Thing", "Feel Good", "Mama's Little Girl", "It's Been A Long Time", "Take Me Where You Took Me Last Night", and "Feel Good".

Chubby JacksonOoh What An Outfit – New York 1949 ... CD
Uptown, 1949. New Copy 2 CDs ... $20.99 24.98
A marvelous document of the power of bassist Chubby Jackson at his best – served up here in a double-length package of rare recordings from the end of the 40s! Chubby has a really unique place in jazz – a special space between bop and swing, where he was able to work with some of the best players of his generation – and help forge an audience for the modern tones of the newer music by bringing in some of the more powerful elements of the old! This quality really comes through in the initial batch of big band recordings in the package, which take up most of CD1 – tunes that echo some of the work Jackson had done with Woody Herman's group in the late 40s, but arguably even more hard-biting and boppish – with strong work from Frank Socolow on alto, Teddy Charles on vibes, Ray Turner and Al Young on tenor, and the trio of Norman Faye, Al Porcino, and Charlie Walp on trumpets. Arrangements are by drummer Tiny Khan for the big band sides – and the set also features smaller ensemble work with Gene Roland's Boppers, led by trumpeter Gene Roland – plus work by the quintet of vibist Joe Roland with singer Paula Castle. The set also features a very cool combo recorded in Sweden – Chubby Jackson's Fifth Dimensional Jazz Group – with Conte Candoli on trumpet, Terry Gibbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, and Frank Socolow on tenor. The whopping package features 2CDs, 37 tracks – and mixes together live tracks, radio broadcasts, and some rare recording sessions too. CD

Quincy JonesLove, Q – Greatest Love Songs ... CD
Hip-O, 1970s/1980s/1990s. Used ... $7.99
Sweet sweet Quincy! Although the Q's probably best remembered round these parts for his funky 70s work or classic 60s soundtracks, we also have to admit that we love him for his mellow grooves – the sly and seductive tunes that often hid out amidst his albums of the 70s and 80s, and which also featured early work by singers that later went onto much greater fame. This excellent set brings together 17 of those wonderful mellow moments – stretching back to some of Quincy's important collaborative A&M efforts of the 70s, and running up to some of his best work of more recent vintage. Titles include "Superwoman" and "Love Me By Name", with Patti Austin; "Body Heat", with Leon Ware; "I'm Gonna Miss You In The Morning", with Luther Vandross & Patti Austin; "Velas" and "The Getaway", with Toots Thielemans; "How Do You Keep The Music Playing" and "Baby Come To Me", with Patti Austin & James Ingram; "The Places You Find Love", with Siedah Garrett, Chaka Khan, & Herbie Hancock; "The Secret Garden", with El DeBarge, James Ingram, Al B Sure, & Barry White; "Sax In The Garden", with Barry White & Kirk Whalum; "Turn Out The Lamplight", with George Benson; and "Just Once", with James Ingram.

Charles LloydDiscovery! ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful bit of soul jazz – much less trippy than some of Charles Lloyd's later work, and handled with a soulful flair that's a mix of Coltrane spiritualism, with an even larger dose of the sort of post-Trane experiments in jazz that would crop up during the early 70s on smaller independent labels – a scene that Lloyd really influenced with albums like this! The record's quite advanced for its time – and features Charles' tenor and flute next to piano by Don Friedman, bass by either Richard Davis or Eddie Khan, and drums by Roy Haynes or JC Moses – on titles that include Lloyd's classic "Forest Flower", plus "Little Peace", "Love Song to A Baby", "Sweet Georgia Bright", and "Bizarre".

Ellen McIlwaineWe the People ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine! Ellen's certainly not a soul artist – but she's got a particularly soulful approach to folk rock – one that's made her a favorite of groovers worldwide in the past few decades, thanks to a big push from Gilles Peterson, and the club scene in Tokyo and Germany! The approach on this record is kind of like a mixture between Chaka Khan and Joni Mitchell – lots of upbeat grooves, mixed with jazzy acoustic guitar and some wonderfully soaring vocals – in a style that needs to be heard to be fully understood. The standout cut is the amazing "Jimmy Jean", a soaring jazzy dance cut with unbelievable vocals – and other nice ones include "Sliding", "Ain't No Two Ways", and "All To You". CD

One of the nicest solo records by Alicia Myers – formerly a vocalist with Al Hudson and The Soul Partners, but sounding even better here on her own. The record's got a strong smooth midtempo groove – with the beat toned down a bit from earlier days, in a style that works perfectly for Alicia's voice. A perfect bit of soul for that warm Sunday afternoon in the fall – king of similar to Chaka Khan's great solo work on Warner from the same time. Titles include "When Love Starts To Go", "I'm So Lonely", "Love Me Or Leave Me Alone", and "Do Your Kind Of Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Esther Phillips' biggest comeback albums from the 70s – a tight batch of jazzy soul, with backing by funky fusion players like Steve Khan, David Sanborn, and The Brecker Brothers – plus guitarist Joe Beck, who almost gets equal billing on the original album cover! Titles include a good version of Grover Washington's "Mr Magic" – with the same funky undercurrent as the original – plus the tracks "One Night Affair", "I Can Stand A Little Rain", "Hurtin House", "Turn Around Look At Me", and a semi-hit version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes".

New Dizzy ReeceAsia Minor (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
New Jazz (Japan), 1962. Used ... $16.99
A rare treasure from British trumpeter Dizzy Reece – quite different than his albums at the time for Blue Note! Dizzy's playing here with a style that has a fair bit of exotic touches – not entirely in the Yusef Lateef mode, but definitely with a similar blend of hardbop, soul jazz, and some of the Eastern-styled themes that you might expect from an album entitled Asia Minor. His trumpet is still firmly in the lead, but it's boldness is inflected by some great work from reed players Cecil Payne on baritone and Joe Farrell on tenor sax and flute – making a young appearance here, but already showing a great talent for soulful exploration. The rest of the group features Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Charlie Persip on rhythm – and all players are surprisingly well matched, and led strongly by Reece through a visionary set that includes the titles "The Story Of Love", "The Shadow Of Khan", "Yamask", "Spiritus Parkus", and "Ackmet".

Max RoachSpeak, Brother, Speak ... LP
Fantasy, 1962. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Solidly righteous jazz from the Max Roach of the 60s – recorded at a time when the player was really breaking away from his straighter hardbop roots, and delving deeper into more freely soulful jazz expression! The record only features 2 long tracks – each a side apiece – played by Max with a quartet that includes Clifford Jordan on tenor, Eddie Khan on bass, and Mal Waldron on piano. Jordan really takes off on the album – demonstrating a great ability for long blowing and creative exploration that was only hinted at on his other studio sessions at the time, and which really points the way towards some of his freer-thinking records of the 70s. Waldron is great too – bringing in some nicely darker colors that really help to round out the sound. Titles include "Speak Brother Speak" and "A Variation". LP, Vinyl record album

The overall musicianship is still quite nice – a commercial take on jazz funk, but played to perfection, thanks to the tightness of the ensemble.

Great later work from Rufus – working here without Chaka Khan on vocals, but sounding even jazzier as a result! There almost seems to be more emphasis on the instrumentation than before – and the album's got a warmly funky groove that definitely carries on the 70s Rufus tradition, but cleans things up a bit for the 80s generation – especially lean on the rhythms and the keyboards! Tony Maiden and David Wolinski handle the vocals, often in a compressed way that's mixed right down in the music – but the real charm here comes from the rhythms and the sweet jazzy licks in the grooves. Titles include "Tonight We Love", "Can I Show You", "What Is It", "Afterwards", "We Got The Way", "Party Til You're Broke", "Love Is Taking Over", and "Secret Love". LP, Vinyl record album

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99
Not the whole life of Ravi Shankar in music – and instead, a really cool concentration of work from one of his greatest periods ever – that magical late 50s/early 60s moment when he was completely transforming the sound of Indian music, and beginning to have an influence on the wider world as well! Most of the numbers here are long ragas, played in that complicated rhythmic style that made Shankar so great – and most numbers are quite extended, all going well over 10 minutes, and a few even pushing close to the half hour mark as well. One title – "Raga Palas Kafi" – features work with Ali Akbar Khan – and other titles include "Raga Jog", "Dhun In Mishra Mand", "Raga Rageshri", "Raga Desi", "Raga Charu Keshi", "Misra Piloo", and "Raga Ahir Bhairav".

VariousTropicalia – A Brazilian Revolution In Sound ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
An amazing introduction to one of the most significant cultural movements in the latter half of the 20th Century – the groundbreaking years of Tropicalia in late 60s Brazil! The music and legacy of Tropicalia are referenced often, but hardly ever presented this well – and this package is everything we could have hoped for as an introduction to the movement – filled not just with great music, but also an overwhelming amount of notes that trace the history of Brazilian music and art through their changes in relation to Tropicalia! In fact, the notes are almost worth the price of the compilation alone – very densely written over 48 pages in the CD booklet, with more information in one place than we've ever seen before. But as you might imagine, it's the music that really makes the set special – and Soul Jazz have done an excellent job of pulling together key late 60s works from the most important musicians associated with Tropicalia – an great starting point for the movement that's filled with most essential tracks! Titles include "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tuareg" and "Sebastiana" by Gal Costa, "A Minha Menina" and "Panis Et Circenses" by Os Mutantes, "Alfo Mega" and "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, "Gloria" and "Jimmy Renda-Se" by Tom Ze, "Procissao" by Gilberto Gil, "Ave Genghis Khan" by Os Mutantes, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Quero Sambal Meu Bem" by Tom Ze, "Lost In The Paradise" by Caetano Veloso, "Bat Macumba" by Os Mutantes, "Domingo No Parque" by Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes, and "Irene" by Caetano Veloso.

New Sweet InspirationsHot Butterfly ... LP
RSO, 1979. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The Sweet Inspirations move in the same musical direction as their once-labelmates in Memphis, the Emotions – and turn their soulful harmonies towards a sound that's clearly aimed a bit more at the northern dancefloors. However, despite the fact that the album might be thought of as a throwaway disco set (emphasized by the fact that the girls toured with the Bee Gees that year), it's actually a pretty nice little record – one that makes things more interesting than we could have expected for the group! The vocals are actually extremely strong, and very well suited to just about all the settings on the album – and it was a particularly great move for the group to title the album after Greg Diamond's "Hot Butterfly", as that tune is done wonderfully here – with a snapping groove and sweet female soul that puts it somewhere between versions by Diamond and Chaka Khan. Other tracks include "Love Is On The Way", "Face To Face", "Hot Fun", "Do It Right", and "Holding Back". LP, Vinyl record album

New Luis Perico OrtizMy Own Image ... CD
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a trumpeter – making his debut here on one of the grooviest albums on the legendary Latin Percussion label! The session's a bit fuller than some of the other LP albums – a crackling blend of jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms – warm, but with some pretty complicated moments, very much in the best spirit of the second wave of NuYorica grooves! There's still lots of the tight percussion that makes Latin Percussion sessions so great – but the record also features fuller instrumentation too – in ways that really make things soar. Players include Eddie Martinez on Fender Rhodes, Jon Faddis and Randy Brecker on additional trumpets, Steve Khan on guitar, and Carlos Patato Valdez on congas – and Ruben Blades even plays a bit of acoustic guitar on the record. The overall feel's a bit like some of the great Fania/Columbia co-productions – but a bit rawer at points – and titles include "Diana", "Genesis", "Nice & Warm", "Viva Martinez", "I Know", "Hot Blood", and "Perico" – most of which are separated by short percussion interludes!

New PrincePrince ... LP
Warner, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second LP, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you could really hear the seeds of his later efforts – and really remarkable, unique, and fascinating record that stands up with some of his best work, and bucks all late 70s trends and cliches in pop, soul and funk. In some ways this is one of our favorite Prince LPs, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later LPs, or maybe it's because the hit "I Wanna Be Your Lover" has such a mad groove! "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" has the sly sound that would run throughout the rest of Prince's better work for years to come and Chaka Khan would later cover "I Feel for You" and hit large with it in the 80s. Also includes "Sexy Dancer", "With You" and "When We're Dancing Close And Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of mellow compressed LA styles and slicker funkier numbers that do the same thing for her Chicago-trained vocals that Rufus' backing did for that of Chaka Khan. Of course, it helps that she's got some superbly sensitive writing and arranging help by husband Richard Rudolph – and Stevie Wonder's definitely lurking in the background, too. Includes Minnie's huge crossover hit "Loving You", a perfect showcase for her beautiful 5 octave voice, plus the tracks "Our Lives", "Every Time He Comes Around", "Perfect Angel", and "Reasons".

Next up is Soul Sister – a record that has Shirley Scott getting some mighty cool help from vibist Lem Winchester – a player whose tones always make a session worth checking out! Lem's got a nicely punctuated feel to his vibes on the record – a tight, short punch that works beautifully alongside Scott's fluid Hammond lines – almost enough on their own, even without the rhythm help of George Duvivier on bass and Art Edgehill on drums. Tracks include "Blues For Tyrone", "The More I See You", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Like Young", and "Sonnymoon For Two".

An excellent set of dancefloor grooves from the 80s – the kind of a set that makes you realize how much great music was crucially overlooked at the time! Most of the artists on the set are bigger names from the Warner and Atlantic catalogs, but they're served up here with some lesser-known tracks that stand out even more than the bigger hits – often in a catchy 80s groove mode that mixes sweet keyboards, tight bass, and some warm jazzy touches – soaring along in a post-disco mode that brings back plenty of soul to the dancefloor! And even though we recognize a few of these numbers, we'll be honest in saying that it wasn't until hearing them in the company of the other tunes on this set that we realized how great they are. 12 tracks in all – with titles that include "Eye To Eye" by Chaka Khan, "Toda Menina Baiana" by Gilberto Gil, "Watching You" by Slave, "I'm Sick & Tired (UK 12" rmx)" by Larry Graham, "Try It Out" by Gino Soccio, "Bad Habits (12" mix)" by Jenny Burton, "Intimate Connection" by Kleeer, "Feels So Real" by Patrice Rushen, "Mt Airy Groove" by Pieces Of A Dream, "Didn't Know About Love" by Lenny White, and "The Way You Love Me (12" Hype rmx)" by Karyn White.

The record's quite advanced for its time – and features Lloyd's tenor and flute next to piano by Don Friedman, bass by either Richard Davis or Eddie Khan, and drums by Roy Haynes or JC Moses. Includes Lloyd's classic "Forest Flower", plus "Little Peace", "Love Song to A Baby", "Sweet Georgia Bright", and "Bizarre". Nirvana is lovely work from Charles Lloyd – recorded at the point when he was just pushing off from Chico Hamilton's group, and before he got too noodly for his own good! Side one of the record features Lloyd with his own group – jazzing it up in a mix of flute, guitar, and percussion on a number of short tracks that have a light and breezy feel. There's a nice dose of bossa in the set, plus some of the other freer rhythmic styles that Lloyd and Hamilton experimented with together at the time – but all of the tracks have a strong rhythmic pulse, and never lose their groove for too much experimentation. Side two features two wonderful tracks with Hamilton's group at a point when Lloyd was still working with the ensemble – both long tracks with a modal pulse and a great deal of spirituality – again free, but never too much so! A nice little album – with tracks that include "Island Blues", "Carcara", "Long Time Baby", "One For Joan", and "Freedom Traveler". CD

Rhythm is from Mark Egan on bass, Danny Gottlieb on drums, and Sammy Figuera on percussion – and titles include "Monuments", "Sky Dance", "The Chooser", "Lonely Promises", and "Starclimber".

Buddy Rich gets heavily on a world music trip here – working with Indian percussionist Alla Rahka, in a very very spare setting! The core sounds on the album are generated by Buddy's work on the regular drum kit and dholak, and Alla's work on tabla – with some additional instrumentation by Paul Horn on flute, snaking through the tunes with a slight jazzy sound. A few tracks feature some additional instrumentation, but overall the feel of the music is quite spare – and with a hip sound that you'd never expect from Buddy! Titles include "Duet In Dadra", "Khanda Kafi", "Tal Sawari", "Nagma E Raksh", and "Rangeela". CD

Buddy Rich/Alla RakhaRich A La Rakha ... LP
World Pacific, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
A pretty hip record – a lot cooler than you'd expect from Buddy Rich! The record features Rich playing with a group of Indian musicians lead by Alla Rakha on tabla, conducted by Ravi Shankar, who also wrote all the material on the album – and Paul Horn also joins the group for a bit of flute on some tracks. The tunes are mostly in the Indian idiom, with less jazz touches than you might expect from Rich's presence – and Buddy mostly supplys fills and some harder drum riffs on the tracks. Titles include "Khanda Kafi", "Duet In Dadra", "Tal Sawari", and "Nagma E Raksh". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed 60s pressing!)

VariousKhana Khana – Funk, Psychedelia, & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99
Really tremendous stuff – and kind of a genre-defining compilation – one that will ship our listening for years to come! We've heard a bit of 70s Iranian music before, but this overstuffed package really opens up our ears – to a range of funky, freaky sounds that go way beyond just the kind of unusual psyche that folks have been passing around for years – and more into the kind of amazing and unreal sounds you might expect to find more in Indian music of the time! As with some Indian cuts, there's a wicked blend of Western funk and Eastern exoticism going on here – while others have a haunting feel that's a bit more regional, especially the vocal numbers – and throughout it all, the set continues to deliver some really wonderful surprises, with a track list that's very well thought out – and supported by great notes too. Titles include "Baanoye Sahar Aavaaz" by Soli, "Jodayee" by Afsar Shahidi, "Nefrin Nameh" by Dariush, "Ki Bood" by Neli, "Gharibaneh" by Beti, "Dokhtar Khoshgel" by Aghassi, "Khana Khana" by Habib Mohebian, "Kavire Del" by Marjan, "Do Ta Cheshmoon" by Mahsati, and "Woman" by Shahram.

New Chet Baker QuintetConservatorio Cherubini – Complete Concert ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1956. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The complete 1956 Chet Baker performance at the Conservatorio Cherubini in Italy – augmented by a great set of notes and some excellent bonus work from the same time! The core part of the set features a rare Baker performance from his mid 50s European tour – one that features Chet on trumpet (plus a bit of vocals) – working with a quintet that includes Jean Louis Cheautemps on tenor sax, Francy Boland on piano, Eddie De Haas on bass, and the amazing Charles Saudrais on drums. The tunes are long and driving – often with a harder edge than Baker's American work from the time, in a way that really points the way towards some of the more soul-based recordings of the late 50s. The concert is represented by 8 long tracks that take up all of disc 1 and part of disc 2 – titles that include "Cool Blues", "Chekeetah", "This Is Always", "Ray's Idea", "Night In Tunisia", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "Stella By Starlight", and "Exitus". Other material on the CD includes 2 tracks with the Kurt Edelhagen Orchestra ("Baker 56" and "Bockhanal"), 2 with vocalist Caterina Valente ("I'll Remember April" and "Every Time We Say Goodbye"), 2 from a 1955 Carnegie Hall date ("Night In Tunisia" and "You Don't Know What Love Is"), and 4 from a 1955 Newport Jazz Festival performance (including "Five Brothers", "Tiny's Blues", and "Walkin".)

New VariousCalypso Craze (6CD/DVD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1956/1957. New Copy 6CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
A stunning look at the early years of calypso music – not the first rootsy wave of music from the islands, but the second wave that spread across the global mainstream – when Caribbean styles got greater distribution on a host of bigger labels than before, which also led to a number of more popular artists picking up calypso modes as well! This package really runs the full gamut of calypso in the mid 50s – and includes key tracks by originators like The Lion, Lord Invader, Duke Of Iron, Lloyd Thomas, Lord Flea, The Talbot Brothers, Blind Blake, Frank Holder, and others – mixed with stylized remakes by folks who range from Tito Puente to Louis Farrakhan, Robert Mitchum, Eartha Kitt, Hank Snow, Louis Armstrong, The Tarriers, Kingston Trio, Rosemary Clooney, and many more! As always with Bear Family, this set is more than complete – a 6CD treasure trove of music that features 173 tracks that really show the height of the calypso craze in the 50s – plus a bonus DVD with the film Calypso Joe from 1957 – a full length film that's never been issued outside its theatrical release, starring Angie Dickenson and Herb Jeffries, with performances by Duke Of Iron and The Easy Riders. The DVD also features four soundies performances as well – and the whole thing comes with a lavish 172 page, full-color hardcover book that's almost worth the price of admission itself. CD

New VariousZendooni – Funk, Psychedelia & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the wildest sounds we've ever heard from Iran – a wealth of wonderful grooves that show that there was plenty happening in that unique scene before the Ayatollah came in and clamped down on Western culture! Styles really intertwine nicely throughout – mixing funk with pop with psych, disco, and even some soundtracky styles that feel a bit Bollywood at points – all coming across with a really cool, groovy, and other-worldly sound that has us loving the whole thing all the way through! The folks at Guerssen have done a great job with the package – adding enough good notes and quality sound to ensure that this one's not just a knockoff – and instead features a great range of well-chosen tracks, put together beautifully. Titles include "Setareh" by Azita, "Aroos Khanom" by Amir Rassaie, "Zandooni" by Farzin, "Bi Vafa" by Kambiz, "Safar" by Hassan Shamaizadeh, "Ey Vatan Iran" by Emad Ram, "Ghebleh" by Nooshafarin, "Gholake Cheshat" by Simin Ghanem, and "Rahgozar" by Morteza.
