New La LupeFiebre Con EL Diablo En El Cuerpo ... CD
Discuba, Early 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Early work from La Lupe – but a set that already shows the highly dynamic style that would make her a real standout in 60s Latin music! A number of the tracks here are listed as "rock" in the rhythms – which doesn't exactly mean that Lupe's singing rock music, but already shows an ear for the kind of elements that would cross over to larger audiences than just the usual Latin crowd – almost a prequel to the styles that would come up even more during the Latin Soul years! Many of these numbers are kind of a Spanish-language equivalent of Jovem Guarda modes in mid 60s Brazil – although maybe a bit less rocking overall – and Lupe's vocals are amazing in the setting, almost even more striking than in later years. Titles include "Alone", "Quiereme Siempre", "Fiebre", "Con El Diablo En El Cuerpo", "Crazy Love", and "Es Una Bomba". CD

New VariousIt's A Scream How Levine Does The Rhumba – The Latin/Jewish Musical Story 1940s to 1980s ... CD
Idelsohn Society, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of Latin music we've ever seen – and one of the first to really demonstrate the importance of the Jewish market during the postwar years! The New York scene wasn't just fed by a hotbed of Cuban and Puerto Rican customers – and Jewish listeners were a key part of its success in the 40s, 50s, and 60s – especially as a rising middle class found new time to enjoy itself both at clubs in the city and resorts up in the Catskills! The Jewish/Latin connection has been a big part of recording from the start – no real secret to anyone who's been buying Latin records for years – but this package goes out of its way to bring it all into sharp focus, with a really big booklet of notes, and a revolutionary selection of tracks that traces different elements through a variety of different Latin styles, plus a few other genres as well. Easily one of the most playful, powerful packages so far from the excellent Idelsohn Society – with 41 tracks that include "Exodus" by Ray Barretto, "Hava Nageela" by Celia Cruz, "El Molestoso" by Eddie Palmieri, "Cheek To Cheek" by Candido, "Arriba (part 1)" by The Barton Brothers, "Miami Beach Rhumba" by Xavier Cugat, "Matzoh Ball Merengue" by Jonny Conquet, "Pan Amor Y Cha Cha Cha" by Abbe Lane & Tito Puente, "My Yiddishe Mambo" by Mickey Katz, "Cucaraca Macara" by Harvey Averne, "Just Another Guajira" by Mark Weinstein, "America" by La Lupe, "Twist Of Hava Nageela" by Perez Prado, "Loco" by Don Tosii with Raul Diaz, and "Raleigh Riff" by La Plata Sextet.

Robert DelgadoJamaica Disco/Dancing Queen/Tanz Unter Tropischer Sonne ... CD
Vocalion (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD .... $19.99
A sweet trio of late 70s albums from Robert Delgado – all wrapped up together in a 2CD set! The music here all holds onto those Caribbean and Latin touches that made Delgado so great in the 60s – a unique pop instrumental approach to global genres that made Robert almost an A&M equivalent on the German easy scene! On these records, though, Delgado also brings in a bit of disco too – not a full-on New York groove, but lots of clubby touches alongside the easy instrumental modes – smoothing out the earlier styles a bit more for a mainstream dancefloor. The approach is surprisingly appealing at times – and the three albums together serve up a whopping 46 tracks that include "In Zaire", "Dance Little Lady Dance", "Verde", "Silver Bird", "Taboo", "Mambo Jambo", "Black River", "Guadalupe Limbo", and "Arawak".

Robert GlasperBlack Radio ... LP
Blue Note, 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $17.99 19.98
An amazing new chapter in the career of Robert Glasper – one of our favorite new jazz musicians of the past decade or so! This set features loads of Glasper's enigmatic piano lines – those fluid, elliptical sounds that are always filled with plenty of soul and imagination – matched here with guest vocals from a host of key talents – including Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, and Lupe Fiasco! The blend is surprisingly wonderful – not a sell out at all, but a way for Glaspar's music to reach a rich new level of expression – as the vocals really help the instrumental elements come alive – and unlock this side of Robert's potential that was always lurking in the background. One of the best musical moments we've heard from Blue Note in years – with titles that include "Always Shine", "Move Love", "Ah Yeah", "Lift Off", "Afro Blue", "Cherish The Day", "Black Radio", and "Letter To Hermione".

New Robert GlasperBlack Radio Vol 2 ... CD
Blue Note, 2013. Used .... $8.99
Mindblowing work from Robert Glasper – a set that makes us fall in love with his music even more than before – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given that we've loved him for years! Glasper's working here in his collaborative Black Radio format – but at a level that's even more perfected than the initial album of this project – a really groundbreaking blend of live jazz instrumentation and underground soul inspiration – served up by Robert's core quartet, with help from a whole host of wonderful guest singers! Glasper alone is worth the price of admission – Fender Rhodes and piano lines that are completely sublime, in that flowing groove that's only gotten better with age – and the combo also features wicked bass from Derrick Hodge, sax and flute from Casey Benjamin, and some damn funky drums from Mark Colenburg – who proves that you don't need any drum loops or samples to make music this great. The singers are the icing on the cake – a lineup that includes Faith Evans, Dwele, Jill Scott, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Norah Jones, and others – on titles that include "Calls", "Worries", "I Stand Alone", "What Are We Doing", "Trust", "Yet To Find", "You Own Me", "Somebody Else", "Persevere", and "Let It Ride".

PyrolatorWunderland (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1983. New Copy (reissue).... $21.99
The 3rd album from Pyrolator – a wonderfully whimsical set that blends together electronics and animal sounds! The feel here is every bit as playful as that on Pyrolator's first 2 albums, but even more tightly controlled – with a strong ear for the "song" in a sound – as recorded bits are extrapolated out using simple, pre-sampler means – into genius mini-symphonies that almost work like audio cartoons! The record's a gem that we've loved for years – and titles include "Rush Hour In Singapore", "Hal's Dream", "Blick Durch Eine Zeitlupe", "Passage To Melilla", "Im Zoo", "Grobe Welt Kleine Wlet", and "Am Morgen & Ein Spaziergang".

VariousKarindula Sessions – Tradi-Modern Sounds From Southeast Congo ... CD
Crammed (Belgium), 2011. New Copy CD & DVD .... $13.99 14.98
Amazing work from the contemporary African underground – put together by the same folks who produced the Congotronics package! The focus this time around is the style dubbed Karindula – music based around an instrument that's essentially a giant banjo made out of an oil barrel, a goat skin, four strings, and an empty bag of powdered milk – often used in this sharp, staccato style that's very rhythmic, and which feels electric, even when acoustic – giving some of this music the same bold drive as Congotronics! The set is a great document of this up and coming style – and comes with a DVD of performances, and a CD of great music that includes "Beggars Banquet" by Bana Simba, "Kiyongo" by Bana Lupemba, "Mado Mado" by BBK, and "Banani Batawina Bena Ngoma" by Bena Ngoma.

New Laurindo Almeida & Charlie ByrdBrazilian Soul ... CD
Concord, 1981. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really sweet session that's very much in the mode of Almeida and Byrd's classic bossa-styled work! The set features the pair playing together in a jazzy acoustic guitar mode – working through a host of Brazilian numbers with backing provided only by the percussion of Milt Holland, plus additional bass. The sound is wonderful – light, breezy, and jazzy – but also with some of the bright touches of the late 70s Bay Area Brazilian jazz sound. Titles include "Stone Flower", "For Jeff", "Carioca", "Choro II", "Famoso", and "Luperce". CD

New Lupe FiascoFood & Liquor (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic, 2006. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The official full length debut from Lupe Fiasco – another wholly unique Chicago MC who's gotten the runaround from seemingly every major label in the biz – and a record that lives up to the long-building hype! Frankly, we were scared almost immediately when we heard the description "skate rap" applied to "Kick, Push" – only to find our fears unfounded. Lupe's only going to be himself – which is what makes him such a strong MC (other than the masterful breath control) – and that individualistic approach is proving to be Chicago's gift to mainstream hip hip. The Neptunes provide one of their best productions of the past couple years for "I Gotcha" – but the soundtracky productions by Soundtrakk (natch) are even better. Other tracks include "Real" feat Sara Green, "Just Might Be OK" feat Gemini, "Kick, Push", "The Instrumental" feat Jonah Matranga, "He Say She Say" feat Gemini & Sarah Green, "Sunshine", "Daydreamin'" feat Jill Scott, "The Cool" (produced by Kanye), "Hurt Me Soul", "Pressure" feat Jay-Z, "American Terrorist" feat Matthew Santos, "The Cool", "The Emperor's Soundtrack" and more! Bonus tracks include "Tilted","Carrera Lu", and "What It Do". CD
