St GermainBoulevard ... CD
F Communications (France), 1995. Used ... $5.99
Finally repressed! This is the classic first album by St Germain – aka Ludovic Navarre – issued here with the "complete series" of tracks from the original effort. Like St Germain's huge-selling Tourist effort for Blue Note, this one's a great batch of jazzy club grooves – basing its vibe on a classic 70s sound, but adding in some great modern French house touches to pump up the beat a bit more. Titles include "Deep In It", "Thank U Mum", "What's New?", "Easy To Remember", "Sentimental", "Street Scene", and "Forget It". Released in 1995, but still pretty darn fresh! CD

VariousMusic For Modern Living Vol 3 ... CD
Lounge/99 Records (Germany), 2000. Used ... $6.99
Spacey, loungey, and a lot like some of the material on the Stereo Deluxe label – compiled by the ultra-hipsters at Germany's 99 Records, with some cool older tracks thrown in to keep things real! Plenty of electronics, plenty of funky beats – but over the top, there's some great older loungey sounds, on Hammond Organ, electric guitar, horns, and even a bit of tabla! Tracks include Tom Jones sublime version of "Venus" and Astrud Gilberto's very groovy "Let Go", one of the best remakes of "Canto De Osshana" we've ever heard! Other titles include "Your Girl" by Blue States, "Dummercamping" by Erobique, "S Bossa" by DJ BNX, "Night Falls (Earthbound mix)" by Gator, "Flyin Away (Vincenzo & Rivera rmx)" by Mo Horizons, "Total Maza (Bugs rmx)" by Q-Burns Abstract Message, "Caught Like A Trout" by MUM, and "Margaret Evening Fashion" by Le Hammond Inferno.

VariousPunk 45 Vol 2 – There Is No Such Thing As Society – Underground Punk & Post Punk In The UK 1977 to 1981 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
An amazing second foray into the world of punk rock 45s – and the British chapter to the previous American volume from Soul Jazz! Like the first set, the track selection here is superb – no overdone punk "oldies" or overplayed classics – and instead a great range of work from the lower levels of the late 70s British underground – including a fair bit of tracks from artists who never got to cut a full length album! There's also a great ear for music that goes past any simple punk cliches – songs that are smarter than the usual lot, have a good sense of perspective, and often offer up a sort of commentary on the quickly-evolving music in some way or another. The notes are great – super-thorough and filled with cover images for each single, plus other info too – and titles include "Wot's For Lunch Mum" by The Shapes, "I Wanna Be Free" by The Rings, "Neutron Bomb" by Art Attacks, "Sick Of You" by The Users, "Mucky Pup" by Puncture", "White Night" by The Lines, "You're Driving Me" by The Cravats, "Real Shocks" by Swell Maps, "Johnny Doesn't Want To Go To Heaven" by The Killjoys, "Power Cut" by The Jermz, and "East Sheen" by O Level.

New VariousTwisted Nerve 10th Anniversary – Mixed By Andy Votel ... CD
Twisted Nerve (UK), 1990s/2000s. Used ... $4.99
A brilliant encapsulation of the modern psyche, freak folk, tripped out indie pop, and all around uncategorizable grooves of the Twisted Nerve label – a 10th anniversary celebration – doubling as both a label retrospective and a fantastic, riveting mix set by DJ Andy Votel! This approach works incredibly well, with Votel crafting a heady, exciting interconnective groove out of some fairly diverse material, and also includes some rare remixes Includes bits that sound like they were plucked from some spacey late 60s/early 70s style pharmaceutical fever dream, to more blissed out and dreamy avant pop moments, to some acoustic centered freak folk and electronics peppered experimentalism – in an excellent continuous mix by Votel. The CD has 13 tracks that each blend a couple or more Twisted Nerve tracks from over the years, a blend of more than 30 tracks in all, including "Say Your Prayers" and more by DOT, "Riding With Gabriel Greenburgh" by Badly Drawn Boy, "Sad Tail" by The Liftmen, "Fire In My Head" by Voice In The Seven Woods", "Pretty Pretty" by Mum & Dad, "Hag Door Mountain" by Samandtheplants, "Gone" by Sirconical, "Rusty Human" by Jukes, "CPU Song" by Little Miss Trinitron and much more!

Willie BoboBobo! Do That Thing/Guajira ... LP
Tico, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent set from Willie – recorded in the years before he moved to Verve, with a very different sound! The Willie Bobo here is less of the pop instrumentalist on some of his later sides – and is more of a hard-hitting Latin leader with a heck of a lot of soul. There's an early boogaloo approach to a number of the cuts, one that really makes them kick hard with some very catchy rhythms – and other numbers have a stripped down, rhythm-heavy small combo approach that's equally great, and which really helps expand the sound. Willie's vocals are kept to a minimum, and there's some really great instrumental touches on the best cuts – including some nice electric piano! Titles include "Bobo Do That Thing", "A La Bobita", "Azulito", "Chickadee", "Rigor Mortis", "Ritmo Tymbale", and "Grab Your Hat". LP, Vinyl record album

CoultrainJungle Mumbo Jumbo ... LP
Plug Research, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99
The long-overdue return of Coultrain – an artist we've been digging right from the start, when he dropped off a pile of handmade CDs as freebies to give away in our store! Since that time, Coultrain has emerged to become one of the freshest talents of the underground – through work with the Platinum Pied Pipers and Hawthorne Headhunters, and work on other projects as well. But we've always loved the man himself out front of the spotlight – sharing his really unique vision of cosmic soul music – a sublime blend of inventive sounds, creative beats, and songwriting that will take you way way way past the usual! This album's been well worth the wait, and shows that our faith in Coultrain has certainly been well-placed – a beautiful set that features the tracks "A Gem Iza Jewel", "Gazelle's Dance", "Y Not", "Deception", "Sassyphrass", "Wanted", and "Asherah Le Chameleon".

Earthy Brazilian dancefloor grooves on Six Degrees. Includes "Boom Boom Boom", "Jangada", "Curmumin", "Papo De", "Zero A Zero", "Warm Leatherette", "Ethiopa", "Tudo Bem Aqui" CD

Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that unique Diddley blend of fast riffing guitar, playful vocals, and odd rhythms that often chug along at a really frenetic pace, especially in these pre-funk years! A key influence on funky music for many years to come, and a record that explodes from the very first note – on a set of original tracks that include "Run Diddley Diddley", "Mumblin Guitar", "Say Man, Back Again", "Come On Baby", "Dancing Girl", "She's Alright", and "Cops & Robbers".

New Joao DonatoLugar Comum ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots of great Brazilian bits mixed up with funk and jazz touches – including a range of great keyboards handled by Donato himself! Drums are by the mighty Wilson Das Neves – who brings in some breaks at a few points – and the whole thing's supremely soulful too – with titles that include the funky classic "Bananeira", plus "Patumbalacunde", "Lugar Comum", "Tudo Tem", and "Naturalmente".

Bill EvansNew Jazz Conceptions ... LP
Riverside/OJC, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.99
Bill Evans' first album as a leader – and a well-titled set that went onto transform the sound of the piano in jazz! The session isn't as lyrically free as some of Evans' later classics, but already has an undeniably fresh approach to the keys – one that's modern, yet never academic – fluid, but never flowery – pure genius of economy and understatement, while also at the same time opening bold new worlds in sound. The trio features drummer Paul Motian and bassist Teddy Kotick, and titles include the classics "Five" and "Waltz For Debby", the latter of which is performed solo by Evans – plus tracks that include "Displacement", "I Love You", "My Romance", "No Cover, No Minimum", and "Our Delight".

Jon HendricksRecorded In Person At The Trident ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
Great live set recorded by Jon Hendricks during a time when he was making his home in the artsy community of Sausalito, on the San Francisco Bay. The set's recorded at the town's tiny Trident club, where Jon played for a while on a very regular basis, and the feeling is very relaxed and comfortable. The band includes players who would go on to make more of a name for themselves in the 70's – like Noel Jewkes and Flip Nunez – but the real focus is on Jon's rich, raspy, always-swingin' vocals. There's a lot of nice uptempo tracks that demonstrate his agile vocalese skills, including readings of "Yeh Yeh", "Watermelon Man", "Gimme That Wine", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Jon's Mumbles".

Whether it's anthems like the title track and "All Around The World", their rousing taking on Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" or mellower numbers like "Tonight At Noon", the albums chock full of maximum British R&B at it's finest! Also includes "London Traffic", "Life From A Window", "Here Comes The Weekend" and "Don't Tell Them You're Sane". LP, Vinyl record album

DRG, Late 50s. Used ... $7.99
Missing links in the Stan Kenton recordings for Capitol Records – a pretty wonderful set rarities or altogether previously unreleased material he cut for Capitol in the mid-to-late 50s! Includes some 1955 octet sessions with players including Carl Fontana, Charlie Mariano, Max Bannett and Mel Lewis – with some swing to them, but also some surprisingly looser sounds, plus tracks from some 1958 saxophone septet sessions with Lennie Niehaus, Bill Robinson and others, a few other '58 sessions, and a couple live gems. 20 tracks in all: "All I Need Is You", "Joyce's Choice", "Sweet Sue, Just You", "Tangerine", "Wail For Gail", "Theme To The West", "Serenade In Blue", "I'll Close My Eyes", "Cuban Mumble", "Tequila", "Walking Shoes" (live) and "Love For Sale" (live).

Lennon's first proper solo LP, after the breakup of the Beatles, recorded largely by himself, with some help from Yoko, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman, and Billy Preston. One of those pieces of the rock canon that it seems hardly anything needs to be said about it at this point, but we'll at least offer it's one of the greatest stripped down rock statements/confessionals of all time, in spite of the fact that you can read that just about anyplace else you care to look. Includes "Mother", "Hold On", "I Found Out", "Working Class Hero", "Isolation", "Remember", "Love", "Well Well Well", "Look At Me", "God" and "My Mummy's Dead". CD

Duke LumumbaJungle Funk ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed! The record is a gem all the way through – a really unique mixture of LA soul jazz and African rhythms, with a sound that's almost like Hugh Masekela sitting in with the Jazz Crusaders! Of course, there's a lot of Jazz Crusaders in the set – as Wilton Felder plays electric bass on the album, giving it a fantastic loping groove – but there's also plenty of unique albums on the record, especially its way of approaching the rhythms with a sly, syncopated groove that's immediately infectious! Duke's trumpet solos are great, and they're augmented by tenor work by Chester Washington and trombone by George Bohannon – all nicely grooving on the album's brilliant blend of jazzy tracks. Titles include "Jungle Funk", "Afrikaloo", "Akagruge", "Like It Is", "Mafam", and "Peace Brother". Somebody put this one on CD – and do us all a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannBrazil – Once Again ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Herbie Mann returns to a Brazilian groove – a vibe that's slightly different than his bossa recordings of the 60s, but still mighty nice! During the previous decade, Mann was one of the biggest proponents of the new bossa sound – and worked on some really classic sides with key Brazilian players. Here, he's moving into a warmer 70s groove – some clubby touches mixed with Brazilian jazz, in a style that's mighty nice, and pretty darn unique – with just the right amount of influence from both sides of the equator! Pat Rebillot arranges, and also plays some great keyboards too – and the core combo is augmented by some larger horns that give things a nice sort of "umph" at all the right spots. Tracks are long, and titles include "Pele", "Oh How I Want To Love You", "O Meu Amor Chorou", and a remake of Joao Donato's "Lugar Comum". CD

Doris MonteiroAgora (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Odeon/EMI (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the loveliest albums we've ever heard from Brazilian singer Doris Monteiro – a blend of electric arrangements with some sparer, rootsier elements – handled by Gerald Vespar, in a style that's quite unique! The record has a simple honesty that's missing from some of Doris' other records – as guitar lines dance over percussion, slide into Fender Rhodes lines that gently give way to a string section – blending moods and emotions without sounding forced, showing a depth in Doris' style that we didn't know she had. Titles include "Maita", "Lugar Comum", "Dia De Feira", "Choro De Nada", "Eu Hein Rosa", "Flauta De Lata", and "Tema De Doris" – and the CD features 4 bonus tracks that include "Massa Falida", "Dificilmente", and "Malvadez".

Paula Morelenbaum & Joao DonatoAgua ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. New Copy ... $14.99
We've always loved the music of Paula Morelenbaum, but this time around she's really got something special going on – thanks to keyboards and vocals from the legendary Joao Donato! Most of the tunes in the set are Donato numbers – themselves already a treat, but given a little something extra when handled by the master – as Donato's playing both electric and acoustic piano on the set! But maybe even more special are Joao's wonderful vocals – heartfelt and nicely wizened with age – making for a warm contrast to the more youthful modes of Paula. The arrangements are in that perfect Donato mode – light and lively, but never too wispy – and titles include "A Ra", "Cafe Com Pao", "A Paz", "Tudo Tem", "Entre Amigos", "Mentiras", "Ahie", and "Lugar Comum".

Lee MorganSonic Boom ... LP
Blue Note, 1967/1979. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Lost genius from trumpeter Lee Morgan – a session recorded for Blue Note in 1967, but not issued until the late 70s – and even then, only for a very short time! The session has Morgan moving into that wonderful last stage of his career – working in tight formation towards a sound that still had that groovier hardbop styles of earlier recordings, but which also unfolds towards a more ambitious spiritual jazz mode. The writing on the session is superb – original tunes that crackle with energy in a surge of dark notes and shadowy moods, inspiring the soloists to express themselves at levels that rank with their best work of the time! The group features David Newman on tenor – sounding completely different, and far more righteous, than on his Atlantic sides of the 60s – plus Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. A great sound overall – right up there with Tom Cat or The Gigolo for lyrical modernism – and with titles that include "Sneaky Pete", "The Mercenary", "Sonic Boom", and "Mumbo Jumbo".

An excellent collection of work by this legendary Bahian percussion group! The band are legendary – and have probably been one of the biggest Brazilian acts to tour the American circuit over the past few years. The stuff on this set features the band at their best – without any of the less-successful crossover attempts that mar some of their more recent recordings.

Verve, 1961. Very Good+ ... $6.99
The sound of the trio is loud and clear on this set – captured before a very appreciative crowd at the London House in Chicago, and featuring Peterson at his inventive best! The tracks on the set stretch out longer than most of the group's studio sessions from the time, and the album's recorded in a great way that also includes Oscar's mumbling at the keys – that humming and grunting style that isn't always caught on record, but which adds a great deal of grit and humanity to the record – especially considering his fluid grace on the piano! As usual, Ray Brown is on bass and Ed Thigpen's on drums – and titles include "Tricotism", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Thag's Dance", and "Kadota's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

SeedsRaw & Alive – The Seeds In Concert – Merlin's Music Box (2CD version – with bonus material) ... CD
GNP/Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from this seminal group, and captures them in a format that really lets them take off! Their studio sessions were always great, but this one's got a special edge from letting all the instruments work together in the same space at once, with no edits or dubs. The core combo sounds wonderful – searing guitar, trippy keyboard lines, and all the sneering vocals the young Sky Saxon can muster – served up over tracks that include "Mr. Farmer", "No Escape", "Satisfy You", "Night Time Girl", "Up In Her Room", "Gypsy Plays His Drums", "Mumble And Bumble", "Forest Outside Your Door", "900 Million People Daily All Making Love", and "Pushin' Too Hard". Amazing 2CD reissue – presents both the original album with crowd noises dubbed in, and the undubbed performance too! Also features a huge booklet of notes, and 16 more tracks that have never been issued before – the band's first attempt to record the album live in the studio. CD

One of the Direct Cutting audiophile recordings made during the 70's, pressed up on Japanese vinyl, and pressed so that it needs to be played at 45 rpm for maximum fidelity. Apart from that geeky sort of information, though, the set's a nice quartet session featuring Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, Toshiko Akioshi on piano, Bob Daugherty on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. The set's a rare opportunity to hear Tabackin and Akioshi from the time without their big band, and the group plays nicely on 4 extended tracks. The best of these is a Tabackin original called "Trackin", but there's also a nice rendering of "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1964. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the gems that Lucky Thompson cut on his return to the US in the mid 60s – and one of the few albums from that time that got wide release! The album's a laidback quartet session that has Lucky blowing both tenor and his new love, soprano sax, with a group that includes Hank Jones on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Thompson's playing is a masterpiece in understatement – with these sly lines, especially on soprano sax, that really set things off beautifully – grabbing you by surprise and holding you rapt, in ways that remind us a bit of Pony Poindexter during the same time. Titles include "Mumba Neua", "Invitation", "Prey Loot", "Fly With The Wind", and "Mid Nite Oil". LP, Vinyl record album

A rare live set from vibes legend Billy Wooten – recorded sometime in the mid 90s, but with a funky feel that's like his best music from the 70s! The Vida Bole Ensemble backs Billy up – giving him a tight large group push that makes for plenty of great rhythms – both funky drums and Latin touches on percussion – the last of which are especially nice, and really do great things alongside the vibes! Billy's the lead man on solos throughout – although the album does feature some nice tenor from David Young, and both alto and flute from George Sparky Smith – players who really help deepen the sound of the record. Production is great – straightforward and simple – and the whole thing's got a classic feel that makes it a great addition to Wooten's too-small catalog! Titles include "Mi Rosa Mujer", "Shoo Bee Doo Bee", "Want You To Be My Love", "Sugar Man", "Don Diablo", "Mumba Caliente", and "Comingo De Amor". CD

Two wild Halloween records by John Zacherle – back to back on a single CD! Monster Mash features Zacherle's competent cover of the hit – but sparkles even more with a host of original material done for the album – tracks written by Kal Mann and Dave Appell, most of which have a cool rock/horror sort of theme – upbeat "Monster Mash"-styled rhythms, with lots of Dracula-inspired vocals from John – a whole album full of groovy novelty tunes that includes some great take-offs on other hits on the Cameo/Parkway label! Titles include the hit "Dinner With Drac (part 1)", plus "Gravy (With Some Cyanide", "Popeye (The Gravedigger)", "Hurry Bury Baby", "Let's Twist Again (Mummy Time Is Here)", "I'm The Ghoul From Wolverton Mountain", and "Weird Watusi". Scary Tales features a weird mix of horror-fied kids stories, and offbeat covers – plus a few original cuts too – all sung by John Zacherley in the monster movie-inspired character he'd developed for local TV in Philly! The approach is pretty great – and makes for quite a strong Halloween classic – the sort of record you don't normally find done this well! Titles include "ABC", "The Spider & The Fly", "Scary Tales", "Hansel & Gretel", "Happy Halloween", and "Monster Monkey". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "Dinner With Drac (part 2)", "Scary Tales (version two)", "Scary Tales (version 3)", and "Igor". CD

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
The Numero Group takes a great step backwards – returning to the capital city of Ohio, Columbus – to mine the same soul and funk treasure trove of their Capsoul collection! The music here comes from the same scene – and often from Capsoul or related labels – and the set offers up a stunning array of rare gems, many of which were never even pressed on record – all showing Columbus to be one of the funkiest, grooviest cities in the US during the early 70s! Lots of the work here has that same heavy groove that we love from the Capsoul collection – and since that initial Numero foray into the compilation business, the label has only become more skilled at unearthing and presenting great sounds like this. The package features notes on both the music and the project of researching it – plus a long appendix on the local labels featured, along with photos and label scans too! Titles include "Woe Is Me" by Kool Blues, "I Need Your Love" by Chandlers, "Funky Disposition" by Dean Francis & Soul Rockers, "Lose The One You Love" by Soul Partners, "Look In The Mirror" by Vondors, "Hysteria" by Four Mints, "This Is The Way That I Am" by La Fez, "When He's Gone" by Associated Press, "Excuse Me Miss" by Jupiter's Release, and "I've Been Trying" by Love Maximum.

Buffalo Bop (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $14.99
A host of horror-heavy tunes – and a killer collection of fright-filled novelty numbers with a decidedly rocking feel! This excellent set goes way past familiar Halloween tracks, to come up with a massive blend of rare singles from the late 50s and early 60s – most with really cool instrumentation and production – almost an audio equivalent to the kind of horror films that were big at the time! Titles include "Shudders & Screams" by Ben Colder, "The Mummy's Bracelet" by Lee Ross, "The Zoo" by Mickey Lee Lane, "Foo Man Choo" by The Revels, "Night Mare" by Billy Sills, "She's My Witch" by Kip Tyler, "Black Widow Spider Woman" by Jack Hammer, "Vampira" by Bobby Bare, "Werewolf" by The Frantics, "Creature From Outer Space" by Sonny Day, "Amazon" by Phil Carter, "Graveyard Rock" by Tarantula Goul, and "Igor's Party" by Tony's Monstrosities.

Heavy drums, thick layers of keyboards, wild-eyed vocal and lumbering sounds to spare from the British prog scene of the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – Maximum Prog from the Past & Present label! There's a name or 2 you might recognize, and more that will raise the attention of the prog cognizanti, but the "rare gems" description is quite apt – with hard charging jams from Don Shinn, Aardvark, Second Hand, Goliath and more!

A very cool little track – one that starts with a snapping drum break, then features some wicked electric sitar dancing around on the groove – which then also has this wordless vocal kind of mumbling along while a guitar riffs some heavy fuzz! The mix of modes is wonderful – funky, but very trippy too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Lee MorganSonic Boom (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lost genius from trumpeter Lee Morgan – a session recorded for Blue Note in 1967, but not issued until the late 70s – and even then, only for a very short time! The session has Morgan moving into that wonderful last stage of his career – working in tight formation towards a sound that still had that groovier hardbop styles of earlier recordings, but which also unfolds towards a more ambitious spiritual jazz mode. The writing on the session is superb – original tunes that crackle with energy in a surge of dark notes and shadowy moods, inspiring the soloists to express themselves at levels that rank with their best work of the time! The group features David Newman on tenor – sounding completely different, and far more righteous, than on his Atlantic sides of the 60s – plus Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. A great sound overall – right up there with Tom Cat or The Gigolo for lyrical modernism – and with titles that include "Sneaky Pete", "The Mercenary", "Sonic Boom", and "Mumbo Jumbo". CD

New Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

New RicoWareika Dub (aka Warrika Dub) ... LP
Island, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet, classic dub companion to Rico's excellent Man From Wareika set. The original record was an instrumental affair to begin with, so this set reworks the mixes with the parts ducking in and out with a few tasteful dub effects added here and there to add a new dimension to the jazzed up reggae numbers. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, with names like Sly & Robbie, Skully, and Dirty Harry, running through 9 dubs of tracks from the original album, including "Gunga Din Dub", "Lumumba Dub", "Over The Mountain Dub", "Dial Africa Dub", "Man From Wareika Dub", "Rasta Dub" and "This Day Dub".

Vanguard, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crowd-pleasing cooker from Clark Terry – a set recorded live before a very appreciative audience, and in a hipper 70s mode than you'd expect! The album's one of those great jazz efforts that was put together by Ed Bland – who seems to bring a nice sense of bounce, soul, and groove to the set – working with arrangements by Jimmy Heath, Phil Woods, Ernie Wilkins, and others who manage to keep Clark out of hoke territory, and into a very tightly swinging 70s big band groove. Other players include Jimmh Heath, Phil Woods, Richard Williams, Charles Davis, and Duke Jordan – and the tunes are lively and soulful throughout! Titles include "Randi", "Cold Tater Stomp", "Sheba", "Mumbles", "Una Mas", and "Nefertiti". LP, Vinyl record album

New Clark TerryMumbles ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, and Mainstream recorded a whole album around it – using the arranging talents of Joe Cain, who runs through a lot of elements that really make the set cook – from Latin percussion, to Hammond organ grooving, electric guitar, and an overall sound that's got a hip Verve Records feel. Players include Vinnie Bell, Willie Bobo, Grady Tate, and Jerome Richardson – and Cain really makes the record groove in ways that we've never heard on another Terry session. Titles include "Mumbles", "Rum & Mumbles", "Big Spender", "The Mumbler Strikes Again", "El Blues Latino", and "The Cat From Cadiz". LP, Vinyl record album

New Orrin EvansLiberation Blues ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful session from pianist Orrin Evans – one of the most richly talented players of his generation – always great, no matter what the setting! We've recently dug Evans in trio and larger group formats – but this set's got him cooking strongly with a quintet – a tight lineup that has Sean Jones on trumpet and JD Allen on tenor – but each dropping out a bit near the end to let Evans showcase his trio as well! The horns hold sway on most of the record, though – including the wonderful Liberation Blues Suite – which is penned for Dwayne Burno, and features both his own music and tunes by Evans as well. The set continues with great sounds that really forward the righteous vibe – and titles include "A Free Man", "Liberation Blues", "Juanita", "Devil Eyes", "Simply Green", "Anysha", "Meant To Shine", and "Mumbo Jumbo". Also includes a bonus encore – "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", with vocals by Joanna Pascale. CD

The style is lean enough to echo 60s rock instrumental modes, but also has some fuller feelings that rival the best soundtrack moments of the period too – especially the hipper, jazzier side of the spectrum! Twangy guitar and soulful Hammond trade spots in the lead on most numbers – and titles include "Mummy Walk", "The Freddie (part 1)", "Love Goddess", "Budapest Incident", "Girl From Acapulco", "Theme From Stella Interstellar", "Robot A Go Go", and "Something For Johnny".

Compost (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest entries in this series so far – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the great music that Elaste has already given us! The set pushes past the boundaries of the dancefloor – to focus on cosmic cuts that might have gotten some play with DJs, but also really unlock a whole new world of listening too – moving from simpler electronic disco into a range of rhythms and sonic experiments that still sound as fresh today as they did when first cut back in the late 70s and early 80s! Some tunes have surprising warm elements, others have some starker touches that really set the tone for later techno – but are much simpler overall – and far more effective, too. Titles include "Gluttony" by Rinder & Lewis, "It's Heavy (Dompteur Mooner edit)" by Barbara Norris, "XXXO" by Equip, "Notice Me (notice the house mix)" by Sandee, "Beat It" by Disco D, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Cybotron, "Shake The Mind" by C Cat Trance, and "Raga Madhuvanti" by Charanjit Singh.
