Mel HenkeDig Mel Henke ... LP
Contemporary, 1954. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Vaguely modern, always entertaining – Mel Henke was one of those LA luminaries who sparkled in the scene in tinseltown, yet never really made it out of the west coast jazz universe. This early album for Contemporary is a great little set – playful, pyrotechnic, yet handled with a swinging jazz approach that makes it more appealing than some of Henke's later work for other labels. The group's a quartet with guitar, bass, and drums next to Henke's piano – and the album features some wonderful arrangements of tunes that include "Where Or When", "Nola", "Four Deuces", "The Man I Love", "Liza", and "Dream A Little Dream On Me".

New Ich Bin N!ntendo & Mats GustafssonIch Bin N!ntendo & Mats Gustafsson ... CD
Va Fongool (Norway), 2012. Used ... $9.99
Further proof that Mats Gustafsson is one of the most versatile improvisers around – able to open up and let loose in just about any setting – in this case with noise-rock trio Ich Bin N!ntendo! Drums are hard, and often fast – and both guitar and bass are super-noisy, and often quite frenetic – yet somehow Gustafsson manages to leave a very strong mark with his music here – blowing baritone sax with a tremendous amount of power as he improvises with the trio. Definitely one of the noisiest records to ever bear Mats' name – with three long tracks that include "Start Fast", "End", and "Second". CD

New Masaru ImadaGreen Caterpillar (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Three Blind Mice/Think (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $28.99
A great little record from the Japanese scene of the 70s – a set that not only shows the great blend of acoustic and electric styles that was happening at the time, but which also really illustrates the inventive approach of the Three Blind Mice label at their best! The vibe here is very different than the usual Japanese fusion album of the time – a bit more relaxed and open-ended, and really free to play around with different rhythms and tonal changes – yet all while still moving forward, and avoiding some of the proggy, jamming modes of the European scene. Tracks all push past the ten minute mark – and in addition to both piano and electric piano from Masaru Imada, the set also features guitar from Kazumi Watanabi, bass from Osoo Fukui, drums from Tetsujiro Obara, and percussion from Yuji Imamura. Titles include "A Green Caterpillar", "Straight Flash", "Blue Impulse", and "Spanish Flower". CD

Incredible Bongo BandReturn Of The Incredible Bongo Band ... LP
Pride, 1974. Very Good- ... $29.99
The Incredible Bongo Band returns – with a second super-tasty batch of funky instrumentals! As before, the group seek to rework older echoes of music with some tight 70s funk percussion – played by a lineup that includes lots of drums from Jim Gordon, and loads of sweet percussion from the legendary King Errison – who cut a fair bit of funky records under his own name too. Many of the tracks are older numbers, but mixed with new tunes here – co-penned by arranger/producers Michael Viner and Perry Botkin – and the rhythms here are even more offbeat and complex than the first time around. Titles include the classic "When The Bed Breaks Down I'll Meet You In the Spring" – plus "Sing Sing Sing", "Pipeline", "Wipe Out", "Topsy", "Satisfaction", "Kiburi", and "Sharp Nine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has light wear, some small light stains on the back, and a small split on the top seam.)

Keith JarrettHymns/Spheres ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1976. Used 2CD Gatefold ... $14.99
A very unusual record – one that has Keith Jarrett playing some solo organ – and a baroque organ at that – but in ways that are quite different than you might expect! The sounds here are amazing – almost noisy at points, as Jarrett really works the instrument in an exploration of textures and tones, less in a pursuit of melody – so what might initially look like one of Jarrett's neo-classical recordings is instead one of his most experimental – especially as the set moves on! "Hymn Of Remembrance" initiates the album – with a slightly sentimental quality – but Keith then shifts into his nine-part "Spheres" suite – which is full of amazing textures and sounds! And unlike the previous CD version, this one includes all the material on the original 2LP set! CD

New Keith JarrettNo End ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1986. Used 2 CDs ... $18.99
One of the coolest, most exotic albums ever cut by Keith Jarrett – a set of previously-unreleased material from the mid 80s – but with the feel of some more tripped-out jazz experiments from the late 60s! Keith plays piano, but also mixes it in with lots of work on electric guitar, bass, drums, tablas, and other percussion – all in this swirling blend that almost has the evocative feel of some of Gabor Szabo's music for the Impulse and Skye labels from decades before – but with a looser quality, too. Given that most of Jarrett's piano improvisations of the period were often a bit dark and moody, the feel of these lost tracks is a really great change – and shows this excellent side of the pianist we'd never heard before. The music is spun out over two CDs, divided into sections – but it works wonderfully together as a whole! CD

Harold Johnson SextetHouse On Elm Street (Revue pressing) ... LP
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good ... $28.99
A killer album! The Harold Johnson Sextet were an incredible little LA soul jazz combo during the late 60s. Johnson was a very soulful pianist, and he had a heavy soul style that was similar to Ramsey Lewis' Cadet work – but which was also tinged with the lyricism of Horace Silver, and the emerging modal sound of Stanley Cowell. This first session by the group was originally issued on a small label, became a local hit, and was picked up by the Revue label for national distribution. It's got an incredible sound, and is very very catchy. The band features Johnson's piano in a very strong lead – plus flute, alto, and tenor. Billy Jackson plays a hard rolling conga behind the whole thing – and tracks include "House On Elm Street", "Watts '67", "Something Mellow", and "Yeah Uh Huh". A great one – and a record you won't find easily again! LP, Vinyl record album

New Jo JonesJo Jones – The Everest Years (Jo Jones Trio/Vamp Til Ready) ... CD
Everest/Empire, 1958/1960. Used ... $18.99
The complete Everest recordings of drummer Jo Jones – served up on one double-length CD! The first 12 tracks on the set are from 1958's Jo Jones Trio – a real classic from the legendary drummer, and the kind of a spare session that really lets his work on drums come to the forefront! Jo's working here with Ray Bryant on piano and brother Tommy Bryant on bass – in a mode that's got some of the soulful undercurrents of the Bryant recordings of the time, but which is also a bit more rhythmically-oriented – in a way that let's Jones' swinging skills dominate a bit more. Titles include "Jive At Five", "Greensleeves", "Philadelphia Bound", "I Got Rhythm", "Bebop Irishman", and "Little Susie". The remaining 12 tracks on the CD are from the album Vamp Til Ready – recorded in 1960, and featuring Jones in sextet formation with Harry Edison on trumpet, Bennie Green on trombone, Jimmy Forrest on tenor, and Tommy Flanagan on piano. There's a lively swinging feel to the set – one that's somewhere between the Verve sound of the mid 50s, and the Prestige/Swingville mode of the time. Jones' drums are a key part of the energy of the album – bristling along with a sharp-edged energy that makes even the mellow tunes relatively lively – and Jo lets the horn players get in plenty of nice licks on the set, a feature that we especially like when Forrest gets a chance to solo! Titles include "Should I", "Sandy's Body", "Show Time", "Liza", "Royal Garden Blues", "Mozelle's Alley", "Sox Trot", and "In The Forrest". Both albums produced by Raymond Scott, too! CD

Philly Joe JonesBlues For Dracula ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good ... $9.99
Arguably the best album that Philly Joe Jones ever cut as a leader – and a straight ahead set of soulful hardbop tunes played in the company of an excellent group! The set fits with with some of the super-hip soul jazz sides coming out on Riverside and Jazzland during the late 50s – and the sextet on the album features players who also made their mark for the label, like Julian Priester, Johnny Griffin, and Nat Adderley, who play here with Tommy Flanagan and Jimmy Garrison. The interplay between Garrison and Jones is worth the price of the record alone, and Jimmy pushes Philly into territory that's a bit more sophisticated than his usual groove. Tracks are all pretty long – and titles include "Blues For Dracula", "Ow", "Tune Up", and "Fiesta", written by the great Cal Massey! LP, Vinyl record album

Junior KellyPiece Of The Pie ... CD
ALTA FAAN/VP, 2013. Used ... $7.99
Solid roots from Junior Kelly! Piece OF The Pie finds Junior Kelly in as fine of form as we've heard him years – delivered with a timeless sound that's perfectly comfortable in a contemporary setting – neither catering to contemporary trends or bowing to overt throwback traditionalism. His voice is full of soulful spiritiual resonance, too. Very nice stuff! Includes "Rock, Rock, Rock", "Creator", "Piece Of The Pie", "Heads Up", "Been There", "Save Your Soul", "Fly Away", "Bun Babylon", "Lots Of Herbs", "Still A Hold Faith", "Win Or Lose", "Go Round Dem" with Lion Face, "Dem A Wonder" with Smiley, "Don't Say No" with Mark Wonder and more.

Barney KesselMusic To Listen To Barney Kessel By – Barney Kessel Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1957. Very Good ... $11.99
A classic Kessel album for Contemporary – one that features Barney's guitar in a set of slightly larger backings, all arranged by Barney himself! The approach is a bit different from some of Kessel's more stripped-down albums of the time – as Barney works with instrumentation that includes a fair bit of flute and clarinet work by players who include Buddy Collette, Jules Jacob, George Smith, and Ted Nash – all supported by straighter piano, bass, and drum rhythms. The mix of guitar and reeds is quite nice, and makes for a warmly lyrical sound on the set – a sound that Kessel is perfectly suited for – nicely sophisticated without getting too coldly academic. Titles include "Blues For A Playboy", "Cheerful Little Earful", "My Reverie", "Carioca", "Indian Summer", "Fascinating Rhythm", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best recent grooves we've heard from Kraftwerk – a snapping little number that really takes us back to the Tour De France days! As usual, the group handles their sound the best – and our favorite here is probably the "Kling Klang Dynamix" – although we can say that Francois K puts in some nicely spare beats that groove things up, while still keeping the feel of the original!

Classic bit of 70's fusion, played by Ronnie on tenor and flute, and with a group that includes some excellent keyboard work by Joe Sample. The highlight of the record is the big sample cut "Tidal Wave", but it also includes the great groover "Always There", which was covered a million times over by other bands during the 70's. Wayne Henderson produced, and the record is an archetypal example of his "At Home Productions" sound. CD

Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin IV ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There's a darkness here – and a sense of magick too – an eerie new energy that still has all the balls-out rock power of before, but which has the group moving into this heady territory that's really all their own. Every song is a classic – and tracks include "Black Dog", "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "When The Levee Breaks", "Going To California", "Four Sticks", and "Battle Of Evermore". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel LegrandYoung Girls Of Rochefort (US pressing) ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $14.99
One of our favorite soundtracks ever – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This US package is even better than the original French one – with a nice colored book inside the gatefold cover that has some great photos and lyrics (translated) for the songs. Titles include "Nous Voyagons De Ville En Ville", "Depart De Camionners", "Arivee Des Camionneurs", "Chanson De Maxence", "Marins, Amins, Amants Ou Maris", and "Chanson De Jumelles". LP, Vinyl record album

John LewisEuropean Windows ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good ... $1.99
A bit of an obscure session, but the first of John Lewis' works for a larger jazz orchestra – recorded with a lineup that includes larger strings and woodwinds next to rhythm backing by Percy Heath and Connie Kay of the MJQ! The tracks are all longer originals arranged by Lewis – except for one track orchestrated by Gunther Schuller – and the album's especially noteworthy for its extensive solo work by British baritone saxophonist Ronnie Ross, a player who's been one of the great under-discovered sides of the European scene of the late 50s and 1960s for years – and who really steps out here in some wonderful moments. The only other major soloist on the set is flute player Gerry Weinkopf – who provides a nice lighter tone next to that of Ross. Titles include "Midsommer", "The Queen's Fancy", "Cortege", "Three Windows", "England's Carol", and "Two Degrees East Three Degrees West". LP, Vinyl record album

Louvin BrothersSatan Is Real/Handpicked Songs 1955 to 1962 ... CD
Capitol/Light In The Attic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
The soul saving, Satan deterring classic by The Louvin Brothers – plus the excellent Handpicked Songs compilation of Louvin tracks lovingly selected by an eclectic group of indebted artists – in this great 2CD set from Light In The Attic! Satan Is Real is a fantastic record of country harmony spirituals, cut by the legendary Ira and Charlie Louvin, during the height of their years at Capitol. The record's a treasure all the way through – from great cuts like "Satan is Real", "The Drunkard's Room", and "Dying From Home, And Lost" – to the groovy cover that has the Louvins standing next to a flaming pile of garbage with a statue of Satan! The real deal! Handpicked Songs is amazing music from the greatest chapter of the legendary Louvin Brothers – the kind of work that's made them a legend for generations! The set features Louvin classics chosen by a reverent group of singers and songwriters that really run the gamut – Dolly Parton, Beck, Kris Kristofferson, Chris Hilman, Emmylou Harris, Will Oldham, Zooey Deschanel, The Black Angels, Mark Lanegan, M Ward, and Jim James – but all artists who have been undeniably influenced by Ira and Charlie Louvin, and their way of melding melancholy harmonies into something that goes way beyond everyday country music! The packaging is great – very much up to the Light In The Attic standard – and titles include "Almost Persuaded", "My Baby's Gone", "I See A Bridge", "Knoxville Girl", "Great Atomic Power", and "Alabama".

A nice collection of early Bob Marley & The Wailers singles – all produced by Lee Perry! The music's a great meeting of two important reggae talents – quite different than both in later years, especially Marley – as the music has a great rawness that would get glossed over in Bob's years with Island, when he would go on to become an international star! The cuts were recorded at Randy's, and titles include "Soul Rebel", "Try Me", "It's Alright", "No Sympathy", "My Cup", "Soul Almighty", "Rebel's Hop", "Corner Stone", "Four Hundred Years", "No Water", "Reaction", and "My Sympathy".

An album that definitely lives up to its title – but which also offers a lot more than you might expect – way more than just a few cash-in dancefloor tunes! True, the whole thing's pretty lively – and titles include the group's seminal version of "Dancing In The Street" – still the only version you'll really ever need, despite years and years of countless covers that always fall short of the mark. But the set's also got a wonderful range that really displays the lead power of Martha Reeves – hewn tightly to the supporting Vandellas backups – and filled with a rich sense of feeling on titles that include the classic "Nowhere To Run", plus other Motown goodies like "Hitch Hike", "Mickey's Monkey", and "The Jerk".

New Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathProcession – Live At Toulouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing music from Chris McGregor and his legendary Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – easily one of the most exciting forces in British jazz in the 70s, and one fo the few who was still sounding their best in the latter half of the decade! McGregor's got as much bite and burn here as with his famous earlier combo, The Blue Notes – and the lineup here boasts ex-members of that group – Dudu Pukwana on alto, Johnny Dyani on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums – all joining together perfectly with McGregor's long-spun piano lines. The ensemble also features other key British players – Mike Osborne on alto, Evan Parker on tenor, Harry Beckett and Mark Charig on trumpets, and Radu Malfatti on trombone – creating this bold horn section that stretches to the skies on waves of soul! Two lengthy pieces "Sunrise On The Sun" and "Kwaholo" bookend the shorter piece "Sonia". CD features three more tracks not on the original album – "TBS", "Andromeda", and "You Ain't Gonna Know Me Cos You Think You Know Me". CD

Jimmy McGriffWay You Look Tonight ... LP
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
Damn, Jimmy's always great! Even in a session like this – the kind of obscure, almost "off the books" sort of album, Jimmy's still giving 110% on the Hammond – grooving with an unnamed group in a mode that recalls the fiercely swinging sound of Groove Holmes at his best in the mid 60s. Like Holmes, McGriff has a real talent for taking familiar numbers – like "The Way You Look Tonight", "Laura", and "Moon River" – and making them swing with a very soulful edge! Even better, though, is the original cut "Once Again", a nice groover that recalls Jimmy's days at Sue! LP, Vinyl record album

The combo's even sharper on the rhythms than ever before – and have a style that's a bit like that key evolution Pleasure took after their first few records for Fantasy – a funk band really going for a cut-above, and finding a way to fuse all their already-great individual components into a rich new whole! Willie Clarke produced, and the album's easily one of his sharpest Miami sets of the time – and is nicely free of the commercial qualities of other big TK Records of the period. Titles include "Eye For An Eye", "Broken Down Man", "Let Me See Some Knees Please", "Strange", and "I've Been Loving You Too Long". LP, Vinyl record album

New Harry MillerDifferent Times, Different Places ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from the late Harry Miller – material never issued during the course of his too-short life, but a great illustration of his really unique contribution to British jazz at the time! Miller's work on bass is wonderful throughout – very rich in feeling, and with a grounded organic quality that brings some especially spiritual sounds out of the players on the album's two different sessions – the first a 1973 date with Louis Moholo on drums, Chris McGregor on piano, Nick Evans on trombone, and Mike Osborne on alto sax. The style of the set is very much in the best post-South Africa spirit of McGregor's work of the time – rolling lines that Miller contributes to strongly, spinning out with a rhythmic pulse on long tracks with lots of open space for solos. Titles from this date include "Touch Hungry", "Quandry", and "Bloomfield". The second set of material is equally nice – a 1976 live date with Moholo on drums and Osborne on alto, plus Keith Tippett on piano, Mark Charig on trumpet, and Malcolm Griffiths on trombone. The long-flowing lines of the music are strongly in place again, but the performance also has some freer elements from the horns at various points – but always comes back to the energy of the core. Titles include "Eli's Song", "Mofolo", "Something Like This", and another version of "Touch Hungry". CD

Red MitchellWhat I Am ... LP
Caprice (Sweden), 1979. Sealed ... $11.99
A funny thing happened to Red Mitchell in the 70s – he moved to Sweden and got very very hip! This album's great proof of that change – as Red steps out from being just a jazz bassist, and sings a bit, plays piano, and generally works in a mode that would really surprise you if you heard him during the 50s. The vocal tunes have a style that's halfway between Bob Dorough and Mose Allison – a bit rootsy, a bit tongue in cheek, and often with very nice lyrics by Red himself – and they're set up amidst a shifting lineup that also features Bosse Broberg on trumpet, Nisse Sandstrom on tenor, and Goran Strandberg on additional piano. Overall, the album's mostly mellow – but there's one or two tracks that groove nicely with some warm, round bass tones. Titles include "Talking", "Tango Magnolia", "Micro Thought Number Two", "Now What Are We Gonna Do", "Envy", "You're Me", and "Avsked". LP, Vinyl record album

Tyler MitchellLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.99
An ultra-hip set from bassist Tyler Mitchell – a player who doesn't often record as a leader, but really makes his mark with this live performance from Smalls! Mitchell's group here is a great one – a really cohesive quintet with Josh Evans on trumpet, Abraham Burton on tenor, Spike Wilner on piano, and Eric McPherson on drums – all players who come together on the album's original compositions, and who have the inventiveness to keep things spontaneous and flowing on the very long tracks – all tunes that go well past a dozen or more minutes in length. Wilner's especially nice – bold, yet sensitive – and a great bridge between the leader and hornmen. Titles include "A Time Called Now", "La Tendresse", "Caton", "Taking It With Me", and "Taj's Theme". CD

Prestige, 1952/1954. Very Good- ... $19.99
Nice stuff from the early days of the MJQ – recorded back when Kenny Clarke was still playing drums with the group, and giving them a bit more of a bottom! One side of the record features material recorded from one of the quartet's first sessions – in late 1952, with the tracks "La Ronde", "Vendome", and "Rose Of The Rio Grande". The rest of the record features material by Jackson's group with Horace Silver on piano, Percy Heath on bass, Kenny Clarke on drums, and the obscure Henry Boozier on trumpet. That material's a bit more bop-oriented, and titles include "Opus De Funk", "Buhania", and "Soma". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rudy Ray MooreReturn Of Dolemite ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
Dolemite returns, every bit as raw as on his debut – making for another funky feather in the cap of Rudy Ray Moore during the 70s! The album begins with the extended "Return Of Dolemite" piece – one that's almost a manifesto for Rudy's way of life at the time – and the set then follows with some equally great numbers that benefit strongly from backings by the Fillmore St Soul Rebellion, who provided music on other great Rudy Ray Moore albums of the time! The music really makes some of these cuts great – shifting the mood nicely, and throwing in a hip party groove under Rudy's raunchy comedy routines. The set also features the wild "Grunts & Groans Of Love" – plus "Pimpin Roc", "Return of Dolemite", "Thin Thin Dime", and "Rotadius". LP, Vinyl record album

Meli'sa MorganGood Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com, 1987. Used ... $8.99
Meli'sa Morgan doing what she does best – pushing the envelope for mainstream soul, but often in really subtle ways! There's a majestic sweep to these tunes that's a real surprise – a class and care that takes Morgan's music past some of her poppier contemporaries, and which always brings a little something extra to the table – maybe a bit of jazz inflection to the vocals at points, or some deeper lines that really help send a lyric home! And although the production is relatively commercial, the end result is a lot richer, too – thanks to work in the studio from Kashif and Lesette Wilson – both of whom leave their mark on the set. Titles include "Love Changes", a duet with Kashif – plus "You're All I Got", "Good Love", "If You Can Do It I Can Too", "Here Comes The Night", "Just For Your Touch", and "I Still Think About You". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "If You Can Do It I Can Too (club house mix)", "If You Can Do It I Can Too (dub)", "Good Love (ext rmx)", "Good Love (rmx edit)", "Here Comes The Night (special club opus)", and "Here Comes The Night (special club opus 12")".

Jovino Santos NetoCurrent ... CD
Adventure Music, 2011. Used ... $4.99
We're not sure if the "current" in the title applies to the fact that Jovino Santos Neto is playing a bit of Fender Rhodes this time around – but we certainly like that change, and it helps give the record an even richer feel than some of his previous albums! As before, there's a mix of Brazilian and jazz modes at play here – some of the balance between complicated arrangements and sensitive swing that Brazilian jazz has always had since the 60s, but inflected with qualities that also mark the American scene in which the album was recorded. Jovino also plays acoustic piano, flute, and melodica – and other players include Harvey Wainapel on saxes and clarinet and Jeff Busch on percussion – plus Ben Thomas, who brings in nice guest vibes on a few tracks. Titles include "Corrente", "Vivendo No Presente", "Pra Casa", "Zagia", "Sea & Sky", and "A Fonte". CD

New BirthBlind Baby/Comin From All Ends ... CD
RCA/Collectables, 1974/1975. Used ... $9.99
Two strong mid 70s groovers from The New Birth! Blind Baby was the band's first for the Buddah label – and it shows them taking a strong step away from their work at RCA with Harvey Fuqua. This one has the group (ever-enormous as always!) absorbing some of the other elements of modern soul that were floating around at the time – and they make a nice mark for themselves on the album's mix of ballad tracks and uptempo numbers. Titles include "Blind Man", "Blind Baby", "Dream Merchant", "Forever", "I Remember Well", and "Granddaddy" Comin From All Ends is back in the RCA groove, and features the group in that funky ensemble style they were hitting with the Nite Liters, Fuqua, and other related combos. Tracks include "Lady Love", "End to End", "I Wash My Hands of the Whole Damn Deal", "Echoes of My Mind", and the classic groover "Comin From All Ends", a nice full-on funky number that runs for about 8 minutes.

Phineas NewbornWhile My Lady Sleeps ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good ... $0.99
A rare "with orchestra" outing from pianist Phineas Newborn – one that has his gentle keys out front of larger backings by Dennis Farnon – all cast in the kind of dreamy mode you might expect from the title! Yet while the whole thing's certainly got a late night feel, Newborn's piano work is still quite strongly up in the mix – never smothered in strings, and instead often stepping along with the same force as some of his trio outings – but often set free from more rhythmic modes, in a way that makes for some of Phineas' most sophisticated stylings on RCA. Titles include "Lazy Mood", "Bali Hai", "If I Should Lose You", "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", and "While My Lady Sleeps". LP, Vinyl record album

Kritzerland, 1955. New Copy ... $19.99
Two famous 50s soundtracks from Alfred Newman – each of them a different illustration of key aspects of his style! Love Is A Many Splendored Thing is filled with the sort of lush strings and rich emotion that Newman could do so well – heard to great effect on the album's famous main theme, but then changed up nicely with some surprising exotic touches that echo the Hong Kong setting of the film – little bits of percussion and woodwinds that trade back and forth nicely between some of the more anglo-oriented dramatic moments. The set's a great example of Hollywood scoring at its best during the 50s – and titles include "Third Uncle", "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "The Moon Festival", "Destiny", "Viendras Tu Ce Soir", and "Mark's Letter". The Seven Year Itch is lush, but in a sensuous way – mixing the comedy of the narrative with scenes that showcase the sexiness of Marilyn Monroe! Strings are pretty full on most numbers, but occasionally inflected with more playful bits – and titles include "Main Title/Indian Music", "Finale", "All About Love", and "The Girl Upstairs". CD

An unusual Verve album from Oscar Peterson, and one that really lives up to its title! There's no drummer on the album at all – just bass from either Ray Brown or Major Holley – which leaves plenty of space for Oscar's work on the keys of the piano, opening up warmly with a really fluid sound. The tunes still have that romping quality of Peterson's early years on Verve, but a bit more lyricism too – and titles include "Tico Tico", "Robbins Nest", "Get Happy", "Easy To Love", "Deep Purple", and "Squatty Roo".

New Oscar Peterson & Nelson RiddleOscar Peterson & Nelson Riddle ... CD
Verve, 1963. Used ... $5.99
A beautiful meeting of two mid-century musical talents – the piano of Oscar Peterson and the arrangements of Nelson Riddle – a surprisingly wonderful pairing, heard here on a rare set for Verve! Peterson never recorded with strings nearly as much as he did with a trio, but almost all of his dates in the format are wonderful – and this album may well be one of the best! Riddle's nicely restrained here – using that new sense of space he was finding in the 60s, and moving a bit away from more sentimental modes of the 50s, into some laidback jazzy charts that are really great. Peterson's piano steps through the arrangements wonderfully – never trying to dominate, and instead really going with the flow that Riddle provides. There's a mature sound to this record that really points the way towards some of the later Verve and CTI orchestrations of the 60s – proof that Riddle could have a huge influence on styles to come – and titles include "Judy", "My Ship", "Nightingale", "A Sleeping Bee", "Goodbye", "Portrait Of Jenny", "Come Sunday", "Round Midnight", and "My Foolish Heart".

A wild set of early 70s leftfield folk from Caroline Peyton – a freewheeling batch of tunes that's a little bit more out there than the warmer, sunshine folk soul of the later Intuition album – but a unique gem that's a great showcase for Caroline's stunning voice, and the songwriting of partner Mark Bingham. The duo's creative origins trace back to a hippie commune outside of Bloomington, Indiana – and the tunes often feel like an unselfconscious, artier riff on the Cali folk scene of the time. The arrangements are built around the voice, and piano on many of the tracks. Unconventional, but warm and true – well worth a late discovery. Original album tracks include "The Sky In Japan Is Always Close To You", "Pull", "Don Beggs", "Tuna", "Engram", "Sweet Misery", "Hook", "Gone For A Day" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Stiff/Y Records, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Fast-riffing post-punk jazz from Pigbag – captured here at their lean and stripped-down best! The album's the group's first, and has them working in a flurry of spontaneous horn parts – saxes, trumpet, and trombone leaping together with a skittish energy that's kind of a jazz-based take on the frenetic grooves of more guitar-based UK groups of the same period. Rhythms are especially strong on most tracks, and given the tight vamping of the group along with the bass, there's a feel here that predates some of the more recent work on the club jazz scene – particularly the hard-wailing sound of Soil & Pimp Sessions. All tracks are instrumentals, and titles include "Getting Up", "Big Bag", "Dozo Don", "Brazil Nuts", "Brian The Snail", "As It Will Be", and "Orangutanto". LP, Vinyl record album

In & Out (Germany), 2012. Used ... $9.99
Odean Pope's never sounded better – and this smoking trio set may well be one of the best illustrations of his power we've ever heard! There's a righteous focus to the record that grabs us right from the start – a bold, rich sound from his tenor that easily shows that Pope's well deserving of inclusion in a legacy that includes Archie Shepp, David Murray, and maybe even Pharoah Sanders – a voice on tenor that's incredibly clear and confident, yet filled with humanity too. Possibly, the setting of the record is what really lets Odean sparkle – an open trio with Lee Smith on bass and Billy Hart on drums – both players who have the same vibrancy as Pope, and who seem to work together with his spirit to really soar to the skies! A perfect tenor trio record – following in that Sonny Rollins/Village Vanguard legacy – with titles that include "Fresh Breeze", "The Garden Of Happiness", "Almost Like Part One", "12th Night", "You & Me", and "Good Question Two".

ESP, 1961. New Copy ... $9.99 12.99
A greatly expanded version of ESP's classic album of live Bud Powell material – one that adds in an extra batch of long tracks that features Zoot Sims blowing tenor with the trio! The core album here features Powell's piano in that famous Paris trio with Kenny Clarke on drums and Pierre Michelot on bass – working in a batch of tracks that features a fair bit of compositions by Thelonious Monk – a somewhat surprising choice, but one that Powell handles beautifully – with plenty of angular edges and sharp tones that show that he's still very much on top of his game at this point! Other numbers are a bit more in the bop standard mode, but still pretty great – and titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Thelonious", "Monk's Mood", "Round Midnight", "Shaw Nuff", and "Lover Man". But almost even better is the material with Zoot Sims – 3 long tracks that all hit the 10 minute mark, and which not only show Powell's trio in the same great shape as on the other tracks – but which also let us hear how Zoot could really open up in the freedom of a live setting. Sims tracks include "Groovin High", "Taking A Chance On Love", and "Bud's Blues/52nd Street Theme". CD

The set was recorded for the Contemporary label in LA, but it's far far different than the cool jazz that was the label's stock in trade during most of the 50s – done instead with a pulsating spiritual feel that really takes off as the album progresses! The lineup features the twin-reed frontline of Lasha on flute and Simmons on alto, plus an amazing rhythm section that includes 2 bass players (Gary Peacock and Mark Procter), who really give the tunes a pulsating feel overall – plus drums by Gene Stone. Titles include the famous groover "Congo Call", plus the tracks "AY", "Lost Generation", "Red's Mood", and "Green & Gold". LP, Vinyl record album

The one and only album that Sun Ra ever cut for the Savoy label – a beautifully understated session that mixes more conventional jazz with some particularly Ra-like touches! The group on the set is extremely tight – especially the horn work of John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Pat Patrick – who glide together along with some of the best mainstream modernists of the 50s, but break out with earthier tones and phrases that clearly mark their playing as different from the norm. Ra plays relatively straight piano for the album, but there's more than enough Arkestra touches from other players on bells and assorted percussion – emphasizing the rhythmic qualities of the tunes, and really living up to the promise of titles that include "Bassism", "China Gates", "Of Sounds And Something Else", "Tapestry From An Asteroid", "Jet Flight", "Space Jazz Reverie", and "Where Is Tomorrow?".

This session has Sue sounding a fair bit like Chris Connor or June Christy – often a bit icy, and sometimes sweet – but without some of the fuller modes on her later records. The album's got surprisingly understated arrangements by Billy May that have a nice jazzy edge – and Raney's vocals have all the wistful qualities you might guess from the title and cover! Titles include "A Blossom Fell", "Impossible", "I Get The Blues When It Rains", "My Prayer", "Wanna Laugh?", "Rain On The Roof", and "Blue Tears". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label mono pressing. Cover has some wear, masking tape on the top and bottom seams, some splitting on the spine, a peeled mark and sticker remnants on the front, and some stains on the back.)

Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live! (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Very Good ... $0.99
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the best singers of his genre at the time, and which comes out especially strong in the album's upbeat monologues, which are often delivered by Lou with musical accompaniment, then leap strongly into the lyrics of a tune. Backing is by a small jazzy combo that includes Herb Ellis on guitar and the great rhythm team of Jimmy Bond on bass and Earl Palmer on drums – both of whom bring a nice little groove to most of the album's numbers. Titles include "Street Corner Hustler's Blues/World Of Trouble", "Southside Blues/Tobacco Road", "The Shadow of Your Smile", "In The Evening When The Sun Goes Down", "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good", and "The Girl From Ipanema". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear, some stains, a bit of sticker residue, a partially split bottom seam, and some marker on the back. Label has a light mark from sticker removal and a bit of marker.)

RedmanMuddy Waters (3D lenticular cover) ... LP
Def Jam, 1996. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $34.99 45.98
Redman's third album – and a mad 90s classic – for both the Funk Doc himself, and for the Def Jam label! By this point, Redman has perfected his wylin'-out blunted rhyme style, spitted over heavy, funkified east coast beats. Much of the production is handled by Erick Sermon & Rockwilder, and sounds killer to this day. We don't dare discount Redman's previous couple LPs, but honestly, this might be his high water mark! . Includes "Whateva Man", "Yesh Yesh Y'All", "Smoke Buddah", "Case Closed", "Mary Jane", "Do What Ya Feel", "It's Like That (My Big Brother)", "Soopaman Luva 3", "Da Bump", & "Rock Da Spot". 17 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
(Incredible pressing – with an amazing 3D lenticular cover!)

Steve ReichDrumming/Music For Mallet Instruments, Voices, & Organ/Six Pianos ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1973. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Landmark music from Steve Reich – a set that takes his previous experiments in minimalism and phase shifting, and moves them into a highly percussive mode! The rhythms here become melodies – the sorts that you'd hear on other Reich keyboard albums, but played live with incredible dexterity – as each player puts together their passage in ways that interlocks with the other – than slowly moves in space over time – and letting in marimba, voice, piccolo, and glockenspiel to the mix as well. The shift over time is amazing – something that so many others have copied over the years, but never done this well again – and the set not only features the extended "Drumming", in four parts – but also includes "Six Pianos", for six acoustic keyboards – plus "Music For Mallet Instruments, Voices, & Organ" – which is every bit as haunting as you'd guess!

Annie RossGypsy ... CD
Pacific Jazz (UK), 1962. Used ... $11.99
A tremendous album from Annie Ross – a new recording of songs from the musical Gypsy, done in versions that are far superior to any that you may have previously heard! Backings are by Buddy Bregman, and Annie's cool and swinging vocals really works magic with tunes like "Some People", "Let Me Entertain You", "Together", "Small World", and "Everything's Coming Up Roses".
