Les BaxterHell's Belles (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sidewalk/La La Land, 1969. New Copy ... $4.99 19.98
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a razor sharp edge to the groove! A few tracks have vocals, but it's the funk rock instrumentals that drive this one into pulp soundtrack classic status. Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove", "Chain Fight", "Dan's Theme", "Scoobee Doo" and the killer "Wheels (Main Title Theme)". This great limited edition CD version has a 4 bonus tracks made up of the full version of the end title song, medleys of shorter cues from the film, instrumental bits and more. "Travelin' Man", "Take It From Me (Source)/Gila Monster/Cathy Left Behind /Mongoose Gets Beans", "Gang Rides Through The Hills/Tosses Bike Over Bank/Snake Or Rope" and more. CD

Leonard RosenmanFantastic Voyage ... CD
La La Land, 1966. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Leonard Rosenman – and a key example of his strong talent for mixing acoustic instrumentation with very offbeat and eerie electronics! Rosenman had offered up this blend on other important science soundtracks of the 60s – but probably hit his apex with this gem – penned for mid 60s film about a bunch of scientists who shrink down, and take a trip inside the human body! The electronics are sublime – used in these stark, sharp ways that are very compelling, and downright evil in nature – providing a real contrast to some of the warmer woodwind touches in the orchestrations, even when they try to echo the electric energy. The whole thing's pretty darn great – a lot bleaker musically than the actual film – and titles include "Proteus Moving Through Sac", "Group Leaves", "The Proteus", "The Chart", "Pulmonary Artery", "Get The Laser", and "The Human Brain".

New Jerry Goldsmith/Lionel NewmanBandolero ... CD
Project 3/La La Land, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A way cooler soundtrack than you might expect – not only different than the usual western score of the time, but surprisingly sophisticated work for a movie that featured stars like Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Raquel Welch, and George Kennedy! The music was conducted by Lionel Newman, and it's often got this sense of spareness and space that really makes things magical – sounds just hanging there in air, isolated instruments moving in Morricone-like fashion, yet in ways that still occasionally have some of the boldness you'd expect from Jerry Goldsmith too. The themes are often personal, almost romantic – yet never soppy, and occasionally inflected with exotic elements that really keeps things interesting. CD features 28 tracks in all – the full original album, music from the film, and bonus cuts as well – with titles that include "El Jefe", "The Imposter", "Main Title", "The Violator", "The Bait", "Ambushed", "A Bad Day For Hanging", and "Sabinas".

New Barry GrayThunderbirds Are Go/Thunderbird 6 ... CD
La La Land, 1966/1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the grooviest music ever recorded for puppets – two different Barry Gray soundtracks for the oddball Thunderbirds films of the 60s! The music here has all the best styles of Gray's other work of the time – a mix of mod elements as you'd hear in spy or crime films, mixed with some slightly more majestic moments used to demonstrate the power of the Thunderbirds team as they head to the skies! Thunderbirds Are Go is more direct in this approach – whereas Thunderbird 6 also brings in a few more exotic elements to fit the locale – and the CD features a total of 20 tracks that include "Flight Of The Tiger Moth", "Zero X Theme/Spy On Board", "Rock Snakes/Escape From Mars", "Journey To Mars & The Swinging Star", "The Ballroom Jazz", and "Welcome Aboard/Dumping Bodies".

New Dimitri TiomkinWild Is The Wind ... CD
La La Land, 1957. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful 2CD set of music from Dimitri Tiomkin – a set that not only features the rare album of Wild Is The Wind, but which also includes the never-issued film soundtrack as well! Both recordings are rich and expressive – that emotive approach to scoring that Tiomkin developed in the 40s, but presented here with a slightly more focused style that's very nice – especially on some of the tunes that echo older European touches in the melody. This lavish package features very detailed notes, and includes a total of 42 tracks in all – including "Bene's Bedroom", "Let Him Go", "Horse Chase", "Memories Of Rossana", "Ange", "Bene Kisses Gioia", "Wild Horses", and "Wild Is The Wind" in a number of variations – including a vocal take by Johnny Mathis.

New Jerry GoldsmithBlue Max – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Legacy/La La Land, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the most famous Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks ever – even if the film itself wasn't much of a hit! Goldsmith really rose to the top ranks of film composers with his work for Blue Max – able to orchestrate both full action and quiet moments with effortless ease – often through these compressed passages that really move beyond the usual Hollywood scoring standard of the time! Things are never too flowery, yet still remain quite full at times – and Goldsmith really demonstrates his great skill with creating special odd sounds out of more familiar instruments. Titles include "First Blood", "Bridge Duel", "The Lonely Victor", "Food Riot", "Confirmed Kill", and "Waltz". Very special 2CD version features 25 tracks from the "lost" final score – plus 15 more from the original 1966 album, and an additional 13 more source and cue music! CD

Chambers BrothersPeople Get Ready ... LP
Vault, 1965. Very Good- ... $6.99
The first album ever from The Chambers Brother – a much rootsier set than the psychedelic soul that later earned them fame in the 60s! The set's heavy on influences from folk, blues, and gospel – and pitches the group more towards the crossover college scene than the mainstream soul crowd – thanks to an appreciatively rootsy style of production that really has the vocals and acoustic instrumentation presented without any other augmentation. Tracks were recorded live at The Unicorn in Boston and the Ash Grove in LA – and most numbers are covers, with versions of "Summertime", "Your Old Land", "It's All Over Now", "Reconsider Baby", "People Get Ready", "Tore Up", and "Money". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a bit of sticker residue, fading on the top seam, some splitting on the bottom seam, and a torn-off corner on the back paste-on. Labels have a spot of sticker residue and a bit of marker.)

Barney Kessel & Harold LandEl Tigre ... LP
Charlie Parker, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $39.99
An obscure session on the Charlie Parker label – and a nicely laidback session that features a hip west coast group! We're not entirely sure when the set was recorded, but the feel here is very much in that late 50s Contemporary Records style – traces of LA cool jazz, but played with a bit more of a relaxed feel in the studio. Land is on tenor, Kessel on guitar – and the rest of the group includes Jimmy Rowles on piano, Pete Candoli on trumpet, Red Mitchell on bass, and Larry Bunker on vibes. Titles include "Cheeta's For Two", "East Of The Sun", "The Cobra", "The Blues", and "El Tigre". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made. The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. Plus, the liner notes include a cool set of notes about Pleasure's crazy philosophy called Planetism. Wild stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

Harold LandFox (Hi Fi pressing) ... LP
Hi Fi, 1960. Very Good ... $44.99
A key moment in the west coast harbop scene – and one of the greatest early records from saxophonist Harold Land! The group's a really striking one – with the unique Dupree Bolton on trumpet, a great player that we really only know from this set – plus Herbie Lewis on bass, Frank Butler on drums, and the great Elmo Hope on piano! Hope's piano really gives the set an edgey finish that seems to bring out even more dark tones in Land's horn than usual – and another aspect of the session that's worth noting is its early production by David Axelrod – who really seems to have an ear for making all the elements gell together perfectly. There's a really free-thinking sound here that makes the album stand out from other LA work of the time – and titles include "The Fox", "Sims-A-Plenty", "One Down", and "One Second, Please".

Imperial, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
A great record – and one of Land's most obscure sessions – part of a short-lived early 60s attempt to make jazz cash in on the folk boom. Despite what might seem like a cheap gimmick, the set actually sounds great – grooving with a soulful swing, in that LA underground mode that always made for Land's best recordings. The group includes the great Carmell Jones on trumpet, plus Jimmy Bond bass, John Houston piano, and Mel Lee on drums. Titles include "Blue Tail Fly", "Tom Dooley", "Scarlet Ribbons", and "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine". LP, Vinyl record album

Festival/Votary (Australia), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
An incredible record from the great Sven Libaek – a soundtrack for a land-based TV adventure that's every bit as great as his underwater music from the 70s! The style is very jazzy, and heavy on vibes and woodwinds – sounds that really showcase the best sound of the growing Australian jazz scene at the time, and its particularly strong influence from the LA scene, both cool jazz and 60s soundtracks – as well as some key European elements as well! Rhythms are wonderful – lively and loping, but also very gentle too – maybe an influence from bossa nova, but also very individual too. A gem through and through – and tracks include "Bush Theme", "Nature Walkabout", "Lonely Australian Landscape", "Fun Music", "Danger Elements", and "Excitement". LP, Vinyl record album

The greatest album to date from Sugarman 3 – one of the funkiest combos of the past 50 years! The group's organ/sax sound has never sounded so great – and it's pumped up even further here from some added guest instrumentation, including drums from Bernard Purdie, plus vocals on a number of cuts from deep funk legends Lee Fields, Charles Bradley, and Naomi Davis. The whole thing's as funky as funky can be – the kind of a record that would be selling for $300 if it came out in the 70s, and which is even nicer to have at a low everyday price! Titles include "Shot Down", "Modern Jive", "Funky So & So", "Take It As It Come", "Pure Cane", "Promised Land", "Country Girl", "La Culebra", "Down To It", "Honey Wagon", and "Bosco's Blues".

Just about every single player in the group is a master talent – and soloists include Carmell Jones, Harold Land, Teddy Edwards, Walter Benton, Joe Maini, and Groove Holmes, whose organ lines get top billing with the band – and soar out over the top majestically!

VariousDeutsche Elektronische Musik – Experimental German Rock & Electronic Music 1972 to 1983 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
A much-needed look at the incredible German music scene of the 70s – a sprawling landscape of prog, fusion, electronics, and more – all put together beautifully here with the usual completeness we've come to expect from Soul Jazz! Many of the names are familiar – the sorts you've either passed by in the record racks, or seen priced up high in the collectible imports up on display – and if you've never dipped into these grooves, this set is a perfect way to start – as the folks at Soul Jazz have really tuned their ears well, to pick out key tracks that really resonate strongly with music of the 21st Century – a good deal of which was influenced by these groundbreaking acts. Some cuts are long, but never too overindulgent – and the instrumentation and production techniques are really mindblowing – extremely creative, and often presented here in their most open, honest form. As usual with Soul Jazz, the notes are wonderful – and titles include "Devotion" by Between, "Dino" by Harmonia, "This Morning" by Gila, "Rambo Zambo" by Kollektiv, "La Chasse Aux Microbes" by Michael Bundt, "It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl" by Faust, "Hallo Gallo" by Neu, "Rheinita" by La Dusseldorf, "Morgengruss" by Popul Vuh, "Fly United" by Amon Duul II, "Soham" by Deuter, "I Want More" by Can, "Geradewohl" by Roedelius, "No Man's Land" by Tangerine Dream, "Daydream" by Ash Ra Tempel, "High Life" by Ibliss, and "Heisse Lippen" by Cluster.

Tracks are all in the 5 minute range – and Land's edgey tone really makes the record crackle a bit more than most Contemporary sides from the time.

"Land Of Love" has a groove you can't even begin to imagine – all the instruments jumping up and down at once, like kids bouncing on a great big bed, while horn parts descend all over the place, laying out a weird off kilter groove! "Revolt" is a mellower tune – begins like a soul number, but then launches into a nice Latinized stepping groove, with an approach that kind of points the way towards funky early 70s LA! Louie Ramirez arranged, and Dave Baby Cortez played organ. Both sides are nice and groovy, with sort of a Latin soul vibe. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jimmy's working here with an all-star group that almost recalls his Blue Note jam session work – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Teddy Edwards and Harold Land on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar – all coming together in gently-grooving numbers that have a classic soul jazz feel. Titles include "It's Necessary", "For Your Love", "Side Mouthin", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "I've Got Love On My Mind", and "Say It Again, Jim". LP, Vinyl record album

Like those groups in their later years, Tierra's focus here is more on tunes that have a mellow-grooving soul approach – still Latin in some of the instrumentation, rhythms, and phrasing – but also aimed at more of a crossover soul market, and sung with a great East LA appreciation for a gentle harmony. Titles include "Stranded", "Baila Simon", "Land Of The Free", "Don't Be So Sure", "Some Kind Of Woman", "Knowing You Loving You", and the great groover "Sun God", which has a wicked mix of electronics and congas!

The set's got the mix of modernism and soul bop leanings you might expect from the players – a really fresh approach that comes off especially well in the non-iconic production style of the Dootone label – a mode that really let the players do their own thing, and break out from some of the tighter restrictions of other LA labels on the scene. Frank Butler completes the quintet on drums – and titles include "The Countdown", "Into The Orbit", "Race For Space", "Move", "Angel Eyes", and "So Nice". CD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Foreplay", "Chasin The Bird", "Move (unedited version)", and "Head Gear (Countdown) (unedited version)". CD

Salvation, 1974. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic sound overall too, one that leaves plenty of room for Airto's unique jams on percussion, plus a bit of vocals from the lovely Flora Purim. Airto's got some top-shelf talents helping him out here – Billy Cobham on production, and Stanley Clarke and Milcho Leviev on arrangements – and there's a nice sense of darkness going on that even separates the album from some of Airto's other mid 70s sides on CTI.

The sound is a bit looser than most of the recent work on the label – not entirely free, but nicely without any strong structures – so that Mats can stretch out on these amazing lines on both slide and valve trombone, with a sense of voice and vision on the instrument that we haven't heard since Roswell Rudd! The rest of the lineup is great too – a quartet with mighty nice tenor and bass clarinet from Per Texas Johansson, bass from Joe Williamson, and drums and synth from Christopher Cantillo.

The approach is a bit like some of the best MPS big bands of the 70s – with some keyboards and electric guitar in the mix, driving the rhythms along – while the skilled lineup of trumpets, trombone, and tenor sax carve out these soulful lines over the top – all at a level that's extremely fresh, very thoughtful, and which almost beats most American jazz of this type from the time! The style is more mid 70s than you'd guess from the date – and the album's a great lost treasure from the overlooked Polish scene. Titles include "Wet Za Wet", "Sam Na Manhattanie", "Switaniec", "Hispanzkie Izy", and "Morskie Slonce". CD features three bonus tracks – "Gra Milosna", "Fikolek", and "Tanczaca Anaconda". CD

AliveCall It Jazz ... LP
Redwood, 1981. Very Good+ ... $13.99
The second album by this excellent all-female San Francisco jazz combo – a live date that's even more cooking than their debut! As before, there's a sweetly breezy style to the record – that hip SF sound of the 70s – with echoes of Braziliana and soul amidst the group's jazzier leanings – all wrapped together with a sound that's tight, but never uptight! The female vocals give the music a feel that's like Janet Lawson, Sheila Landis, or some of the hipper European singers of the 70s – and instrumentation is mostly acoustic, save for a bit of Fender Rhodes. Titles include a version of Gil Scott-Heron's "Willing", plus "Greeting Song", "Call It Jazz", "Too Bad", "Golden River/Golden Dream", and "Heaven Is In Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Merlins Nose (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
A really trippy duo – one who definitely live up to their image on the cover, with a heady blend of sitar, percussion, and acoustic guitar! The tracks are all nice and long – rooted in acoustic folk, but infused with a psychedelic sense of exploration too, but in ways that are never too overindulgent, given the lack of electricity on the record – and which instead spin out in a really rich space that's somewhere between UK acid folk, and Island Records during the Nick Drake generation! Lyrics are nicely poetic, and surprisingly good – and titles include "Sea Shell Rock Me", "Sing On The Sunlight", "White Angel", "Swan In The Evening", and "Earlie In The Morning". CD

American GypsyAmerican Gypsy ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
An album that begins with an amazing break – and then rolls into a great batch of fuzzy guitar grooves! The set is one of the odder albums to be issued by Chess Records during its funk years – as American Gypsy were a Dutch band, recording in Holland, and the record was only licensed to Chess for release in the US. We're not sure what made them make this international ploy in their dying years (as they also did with the album Atlantis, by Daniel Salinas), but the move gave them a great bit of funk that's been a favorite with collectors for years! At some point, the album's got a rock/soul sound – almost in the vein of Thin Lizzy or some of the other European groups of the time – but on the best cuts, that heavy guitar gets used to great funky ends, and the rest of the group jumps in line with a good groove. The most famous cut is the massive "Inside Out", which has an excellent breakbeat, funky bass, and very soulful grooves – but other nice cuts include "Golden Ring", "While It's Cold Outside", and "Let Your Life Lead By Love".

David AmramYoung Savages – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1961. New Copy ... $19.99
An overlooked jazz soundtrack from early 60s Hollywood – and some amazing early work from composer David Amram! Amram's always had an ear for higher-concept versions of jazz – but his approach here is a wonderful blend of modernity and spontaneity – just right for the sort of energy of the film, and it's JD "young savages" theme – and played by a very hip group of musicians that include Harold Land or George Barrow on tenor, Teo Macero on alto, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Amram himself on piano – playing in this very cool Monk-like style. Some cuts are more jazz combo modes – like the long jazz numbers, including "Harold's Way Out", "True Blue", and "Las Muchacas Delicadas". Other cuts have more of a soundtrack approach, but still with great jazz elements – and these include "Rooftops", "Help", "Subway Sounds", and "Theme From The Young Savages". CD

Curtis AmyKatanga (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Pacific Jazz/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1963. New Copy ... $28.99
A stellar set from one of the most underrated reed players of all time – a brilliant bit of searching soul jazz, cut at a time when Curtis Amy was leaving behind his Texas roots for the new sounds of the Coltrane generation! The album's quite different than the organ and tenor dates that Amy had previously cut with Paul Bryant – and instead, is put together with a nascent spiritualism that's really wonderful – a sound that definitely lives up to the bold title and cover image, with lots of modal moments in the rhythms! The group features some equally under-acknowledge geniuses – including trumpeter Dupree Bolton, pianist Jack Wilson, and guitarist Ray Crawford – all coming together perfectly with Amy's work on tenor and soprano sax. The best tunes here are originals by the group members – including "Lonely Woman" (not by Ornette), "Katanga", "Native Land", and "Amyable". LP, Vinyl record album

Tangerine, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Excellent hard swingin' big band album recorded for Ray Charles' Tangerine label, and with the kind of gutbucket sound you'd expect, if you've heard other releases on the label. The band's filled with great west coast soul jazz players, like Jack Wilson, Harold Land, Lou Blackburn, Bobby Bryant, Teddy Edwards, Walter Benton, and Buddy Collette – and the solos come hard, fast, and searing. Titles include "Flame On The Desert", "Brasilia", "Woman Of Stature", and "The Twister". Very nice stuff, and a record that you might pass up otherwise – but don't, after our recommendation.

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album

Manuel ArringtonMeet Your Fun Master ... LP
Sonic, 1977. Very Good ... $13.99
An excellent lost bit of funk and comedy from the south side of Chicago! Manuel Arrington was a heavy-handed small-time comic who played many shows at smaller clubs in the city – and we'd often see him opening for acts like Jack McDuff or Charles Earland, doing some racy "party" type material that always kind of fell flat. However, this album wisely brings in some music to Manuel's act – supposedly played by the Joe Tex Band and Scotty & The Rib Tips. The album features one long funk track on side two – "Messing With The Spank", which is a great little funky 45-type number, with heavy funk from the band, and Manuel shouting away in kind of an Alvin Cash mode. The cut's a lot funkier than your average "spank" number – which is why Manuel's probably messing with it! Side one features straight comedy, recorded at the legendary Roberts Motel and other more obscure points – and Manuel delivers routines like "Take The Drawers Out'a Ya Boo-dy", "In The Men's Room", and "Funny How Some Women Make Love", in sort of a Samuel Jackson rough-edged style.

Cadet/Verve, 1968. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the grooviest records ever – a sublime blend of African percussion, soulful orchestrations, and Dorothy Ashby's amazing electric harp! By the time of this landmark album, Dorothy had been knocking around the jazz world for a number of years, but it wasn't until she hooked up with Richard Evans at Cadet Records that her sound really began to cook – breaking down genres and expectations in the trademark style of the best late 60s sides from the Chicago underground. The record's got a bit of funk, a bit of jazz, and a heck of a lot of soul – and the setting works perfectly for Dorothy's harp, giving it a lot more room to work around than some of her smaller jazz combo albums. The album includes two great originals – "Soul Vibrations" and "Afro-Harping" – both of which have a nice funky edge, and a groovy soulful bounce – and other tunes include "Lonely Girl", "Life Has Its Trials", "Look Of Love", "Come Live With Me", and a great version of Freddie Hubbard's "Little Sunflower".

The music's never pop, but has some captivating hooks all the way through – sweet little bits mixed in with the funky soul approach of the ensemble – made even better by the great way the vocals get traded back and forth! There's a careful approach to the whole set – a way of putting things together with a good degree of class – and definitely avoiding most of the cliches that would make a similar project sound a lot more clunky. Great stuff throughout – and titles include "Who Could Love You Better", "Second To None", "Touch A Four Leaf Clover", "Tryin", and "Island Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

A really mind-expanded set from keyboardist Brian Auger – and a record that has him stepping out of the 60s shadows of American jazz and R&B, into a groove that's much more solidly his own! Auger's really finding his sound with the Oblivion Express group here – bringing in a bit more influences from rock and fusion, and going for a progressive sound that still steps out with plenty of jazzy changes, and the kind of tight keyboards that always made Auger one of the best players on the British scene. The guitar's a bit more up in the mix than on previous records, but Auger's keys still dominate the solo space – and titles include the stretched out jammer "A Better Land", plus "Dawn Of Another Day", "Marai's Wedding", "Trouble", "Woman Of the Seasons", and "Tomorrow City".

Brian Auger's first album away from singer Julie Driscoll – and a landmark batch of funky organ work that made big waves in both the rock and jazz worlds at the time! Auger's really stretching out here – getting past the simple R&B of his roots, and going into a bubbling funky style that's clearly touched by chromatic inspirations from Wes Montgomery and Jimmy Smith – both of whom are referenced by some of the song structures on the set. The album's filled with killer organ-based instrumentals – some lean and stripped down, others full and rich – and all of them coming across with a richly soulful sound that you'd hardly expect from a member of the British rock scene! Titles include "Day In The Life", "Red Beans", "Definitely What!", and his classic "Bumpin' On Sunset". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's got a bit of Mercury Records rock in the mix – almost a Red Prysock approach at points, mixed with some of the sweeter swing of Georgie's roots – and other players include Ray Linn and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino on trombone.

Auld's playing here with Frank Rosolino, Ray Linn, and Maynard Ferguson – and the mode's a bit like some of Ferguson's albums for Mercury in the same stretch – shorter tracks but with strongly voiced solos, especially on Auld's saxophone – which hangs nicely here between two eras of jazz in its phrasing. Titles include "In The Land Of Hi Fi", "Dinah", "Tippin In", "I May Be Wrong", "Swingin In The Moore Park", and "For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers in a very Afro-styled mode – working here on his own after a famous collaboration with Fela Kuti – in a set that's filled with the same sort of hard-driving Afro-Funk grooves that you'd find in Fela's classic recordings! The songs are shorter than Fela's, and with more of Roy's usual smooth jazzy production style – but the overall influence is very much in the Afro-Funk vein, and the album's sort of a "part 2" to the Music Of Many Colors set that was cut a few years before. William Allen worked on the record with Roy – playing choppy Afro-Funk bass, and arranging and producing a lot of the material with Roy and Jaymz Bedford – and the record also features a host of extra percussion players, as well as some vocals by the lovely Sylvia Striplin. Includes the great groover "Africa, Center Of The World", plus "The River Niger", and a great remake of "Third Eye", which was on Everybody Loves The Sunshine, but is redone here with a heavier sound! Other tracks include "There's A Masterplan", "I'll Just Keep Trying", and "Destination Motherland". CD

Polydor/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy ... $18.99
One of our favorite Roy Ayers albums of all time – and an overlooked gem from Roy's late 70s years at Polydor! This set's a bit more laidback and less clubby than some other Ayers work of the period – which means it's got this wonderful jazzy groove throughout – a sweet mix of midtempo modern soul and the vibes-based style that Roy kept on perfecting at the time. Tracks are longer than usual, and they really open up in a way that fits the title – slinky and seductive, but never soppy or commercial at all – that really special blend of warmth and wisdom that's always made Roy Ayers so great. Titles include the sublime title track "Love Fantasy", which begins with Roy chatting up some girl in the intro, then sliding into a nice smooth jazz funk tip on the chorus – plus the great cut "Sigh", a sweet little bubbling number with a wonderfully breathy quality! Other titles include "Believe In Yourself", "Betcha Gonna", "Baby Bubba", and "Rock Your Roll". CD

Henk's working here with frequent partner Dick Raaijmakers, in that eerie, other-worldly style that the pair brought to their groundbreaking experiments at the Philips Laboratories in the Netherlands – music that's made the Dutch sound some of the most unusual of the postwar years, still yet to be duplicated today! Much of the work features dark tones and analogue elements coming together in passages that are more sonic and textural than rhythmic or musical – very beautiful utterings from a future yet to be experienced.

Gary BartzMusic Is My Sanctuary ... LP
Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A fantastic bit of jazz funk fusion – and one of the landmark 70s albums produced by Larry Mizell! This is Gary Bartz's second (and most amazing) collaboration with Larry Mizell – a studio genius who could focus on the best talent of a jazz artist, then expand it using additional keyboards, percussion, and often a sweet bank of chorus vocals to give the tracks an extra soulful sound! By the time of this album, Larry had already worked to great fame with Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey, and Johnny Hammond – and the record has him turning his talents towards Gary Bartz to unlock a whole hidden side of soulful expression that would never be matched again! The title cut – "Music Is My Sanctuary" – is a jazz fusion classic in anyone's book, and it features characteristic Mizell keyboards alongside Gary's soulful sax, augmented by a deep vocal chorus that's simply fantastic. Other highlights include "Carnaval De L'Esprit" and "Macaroni" – and the whole album's nice! LP, Vinyl record album

New Basso Valdambrini SextetSestetto Basso Valdambrini – The Best Modern Jazz In Italy 1962 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
A really landmark album in European jazz – one of those records that always tops the lists of collectors, and for good reason too! The sextet of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the greatest things going in jazz on that side of the Atlantic in the early 60s – a fresh, modern group who could still play with plenty of soul – avoiding some of the cool jazz traps of other European combos, and really hitting hard with solo work that matched the best American work of the time. The sound here is really incredible – tunes that bristle with electricity from the very first note, played with a cohesiveness that makes the record far more than just a happy accident in the studio! Titles include the originals "Coltrane Style" and "Monotonia", plus versions of Jackie McLean's "Dr Jackle", Junior Mance's "Jubilation", and Benny Golson's "Are You Real". CD

Joe BataanSalsoul (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny". CD features bonus tracks – "Continental Square Dance", "Latin Strut (mono single)", "Peace Friendship Solidarity (mono single)", "Aftershower Funk (mono single)", and "Fin (mono single)". CD

Petrowsky/Bauer/Gumpert/SommerSynopsis ... CD
Amiga (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Bold sounds from this German quartet – a group who certainly deliver one of the most striking avant jazz sessions on the legendary Amiga label! The set's got a free frenzy that's right up there with the 70s best from FMP – played by musicians who often made key appearances on that label too – including Ernst Ludwig Petrowsky on saxes and flute, Conrad Bauer on trombone, Ulrich Gumpert on piano, and Gunter Sommer on drums and percussion! The album takes off with a machine gun-like energy at the start – a real blast of sound that shows all the revolutionary power of this generation of German jazz – but then as things progress, the players explore some wonderful tones and textures that reflect a more contemplative mode as well – still very groundbreaking, but in a more subtle way. Titles include "Traumtanzer", "Quartett Diskurs", "Holzland", "Kommit Ihr G'Spielen", and "Post Aus Vogelsang". CD

Les BaxterPorts Of Pleasure ... LP
Capitol, 1957. Very Good ... $5.99
A dreamy exploration of south sea ideals from the great Les Baxter – a set that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of his more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti: A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Spice Islands Sea Birds", "Harem Silks From Bombay", "Bangkok Cockfight", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon".

BBC Radiophonic WorkshopBBC Radiophonic Music (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BBC/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A incredible and innovative batch of late 60s sound library grooves from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – short bits of forward-thinking electronic music! It's a compilation of material composed and recorded by John Baker, David Cain and Delia Derbyshire – and it's a pretty amazing set of trippy, yet tuneful sounds. Lots of spacey, kinda 60s sci-fi sounds, eerily droning effects, and playful little riffs of more conventional incidental music. The record features more than 30 short pieces: "Radio Sheffield", "Artbeat", "War Of The Worlds", "Crossbeat" and more by David Cain, "Radio Nottingham", "Boys And Girls", "Time And Tune", "Milky Way" and more by John Baker, "Mattachin", The Delian Mode", "Door To Door", "Air" and more by Delia Derbyshire.

Synthy, echoey soundscapes from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop! This mid 70s compilation features a range of tripped out electronic soundtrack music made by workshop veterans Dick Mills (who was responsible for quite a bit of the trippy sounds on Dr. Who), John Baker, Paddy Kingsland, Malcolm Clarke and others – who brilliantly blend jazz, pop and otherwise more conventionally melodic sounds with waves of period electronic atmosphere – with lots of spacey synth! Includes "La Grande Piece De La Fiore De La Rue Delaware" by Malcolm Clarke, "Brio" by John Baker", "Adagio", "Crazy Dazy" and "Major Bloodnok's Stomach" by Dick Mills, "The Panel Beaters" and "World Of Science" by Paddy Kingsland, "Veils And Mirrors" by Glynis Jones, "Kitten's Lullaby" by Roger Limb and more.

BBC Radiophonic WorkshopFourth Dimension & Other Synthesiser Music From The BBC Radio Workshop (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BBC/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Very groovy electronics from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – the team who first pioneered the use of early synth in 60s soundtracks – still going strong here in the 70s! The record sparkles with the best energy of a moogy sound library session on KPM from the same time – lots of keyboard lines upfront, used in ways that range from spare and spooky to cool and jazzy – sometimes with a bit of funk at the bottom, sometimes a more whimsical soundtrack theme! Paddy Kingsland plays the synth, and wrote all the tracks – and titles include "Flashback", "Scene & Heard", "Vespucci", "Reg", "Tamariu", "One Eighty One", "Colour Radio", and "Take Another Look".

Beach BoysCarl & the Passions – So Tough/Holland ... CD
Brother/Capitol, 1972/1973. Used 2CD ... $5.99
2 Beach Boys albums on 2CDs – plus the bonus ep of material from Holland. The Carl & The Passions album was supposed to be a back to basics rocker, but it's a bit weak from this vantage point – although has some of those nice little later numbers that we always seem to overlook when shuffling through BB albums too quickly. Holland is a much more impressive effort – as it kicks off with the sublime "Sail On Sailor", proof that the group were ready to forge a whole new sound of 70s pop, plus a nice mix of tight pop songs and looser Smile-like tracks. Titles include "The Trader", "Funky Pretty", "Only With You", and the "California Saga". The CD also includes "Mount Vernon & Fairway" – a "fairy tale" that was included with the original LP as a bonus ep. The work's interesting – especially in that it shows that the group could still be pretty trippy and experimental – but gosh, we really have a hard time getting through it! CD

New Beach BoysHolland ... LP
Brother/Warner, 1972. Very Good ... $6.99
A great early 70s entry from The Beach Boys – and a record that's nicely balanced between mature pop tunes and more experimental moments! The set kicks off with the sublime "Sail On Sailor" – a tightly compressed, wonderfully catchy number that's easily one of the group's greatest of the decade – and other tracks range from gentle ballads to playful numbers to others that explore more spiritual themes. All group members contributed tunes, and helped in production, but somehow we feel the tighter hand of Brian Wilson behind it all. Titles include "Sail On Sailor", "The Trader", "Funky Pretty", "Only With You", "Leaving This Town", and the "California Saga". LP, Vinyl record album

Beginning Of The EndFunky Nassau ... LP
Alston, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to funk! They've got a choppy sound that's the result of some incredibly dexterous guitar, bass, and drums – and which you'll recognize instantly from their one-time hit "Funky Nassau", a killer funk track that never gets old, no matter how many bands cover it over the years! That gem kicks off the album, which then rolls into the monster funky "part 2", which is even better! Other titles are equally wonderful – and include "Come Down", "Surrey Ride", "Monkey Tamarind", and "In The Deep". Essential – and one that you'll be spinning for years! LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzland (Norway), 2013. New Copy ... $8.99
Stunning sounds from Beady Belle – one of the greatest albums we've heard from the group in years – and that's saying a heck of a lot! Beady Belle are as soulful as ever, but also have a new sort of crackle too – a bit more clavinet mixed in with their Fender Rhodes, and this cool moogy way of laying down a groove that at times is almost a 21st Century version of Shuggie Otis during his Inspiration Information years! The lovely vocals of Beate Lech still keep a great degree of humanity in the music – with these beautifully personal lyrics that have always made the group one of the warmest of all their contemporaries on the Scandia scene – sung this time with a maturity that could well get these guys the much-needed audience they've always deserved on this side of the Atlantic. A gem through and through – with titles that include "Saved", "Party Pooper", "Song For Irie", "Faith", "Circlet", "So Far So Good", "My Name On The World", and "Poppy Burt-Jones". CD
