VariousNext Impressions ... CD
Concrete Grooves, 2004. Used .... $4.99
A groovy little compilation from Concrete Grooves – featuring a trippy, mostly laid back batch of tunes compiled by Presto – one that travels along the line of groovy club jazz and electronics, with tinges of atmospheric underground soul and hip hop! Most tracks are of the oeuvre in which beats roll gorgeously along with Rhodes melodies, with vocals lilting in-and-out as part of the atmosphere, as do the occasional rhyme scheme or jazzier touches. Tracks include "Discover Bobby" by Bobby Wilkins Mechanical Bandformers, "We Know" (Presto rmx) by Speechwerks (this is the most hip hop oriented standout), "Today" by Kingsbread, "Midnight Blue" by Presto/Wayward Saints, "Saturday" by Lowd featuring Kim Hill, "Cities" by Mum's The Word", "Countless Sleepless Nights" by DJ Rylo and more!

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.

AceyaloneAll Balls Don't Bounce ... LP
Capitol, 1995. Near Mint- 2LP .... $9.99
Aceyalone's solo effort from the mid 90's, after the Freestyle Fellowship's major label LP "Inner City Griots" failed to make an impact in the larger, commercial world of Hip Hop. Production was handled by a lot of the more underground LA folks of the same period: Fat Jack, the Nonce, Mumbles & Vic Hop, and Abstract Rude of the FF makes a guest appearance. "Mic Check" & "All Balls" were the singles, but this one's filled with memorable tracks, when more adventurous hip hop was a lot less common: "Anywhere You Go", "Greatest Show On Earth" & "B-Boy Kingdom". 15 cuts in all, counting the couple of interludes, and because this was a promo-only vinyl pressing (during that black patch of the 90's when so much wasn't pressed on vinyl), many of the tracks are clean edits for radio play.

Baby BlakNo Coast Allstars (radio, inst, BBK's alternate verse)/Economix (radio, album, inst) ... 12-inch
Rapster (UK), 2003. Very Good+ .... $1.99
Another great true hip hop single from Rapster by Baby Blak, the Philly-bred cat who's worked with Dilated Peoples, Joey Chavez and scores of others. On "No Coast All Stars" Baby Blak is joined by Planet Asia and Obie Trice over a crisp beat and funky synth line – but it's all about the verbal flow on this cut, and the crew (particularly PA's on the main and BB's alternate vocal track) are at the top of their game. "Economix" is built around another spacey synth, this one overdubbed for maximum effect – with some nicely placed scratches and a Guru-like vocal delivery. The most promising cuts yet from Baby Blak! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bronx River ParkwayAgua Con Sal/Me Toca ... 7-inch
Truth & Soul, 2007. New Copy .... $5.99
Sweet Latin grooves from Bronx River Parkway – two great numbers back to back! "Aqua Con Sal" has a soulful stepping bassline at the bottom – one that sets the groove with almost a bit of early 70s west coast Latin – in contrast to the more New York-sounding horns on the top! Vocals are held to a minimum, and the cut's also got a nice percussion bit in the middle! "Me Toca" is nice and mellow too – slowly snapping timbales, bits of bass and keyboards, and a Malo-styled soulful vocal in Spanish! 7-inch, Vinyl record

CoultrainJungle Mumbo Jumbo ... CD
Plug Research, 2013. New Copy .... $9.99
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".

Raul De SouzaBossa Eterna ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2008. Used .... $14.99
Beautiful bossa work from trombonist Raul DeSouza – a jazzy session that takes us back to his first 60s recordings as Raulzinho! The group's a quartet, with some especially nice work from Joao Donato on piano – a player who really helps shape the sound of the record here, as the album almost feels more like a Donato trio record with Raul joining in, than it does some of the more polished music that DeSouza recorded in previous decades for US audiences. Raul's tone is tremendous, and given that Donato once played trombone too, it's clear that the players have a great sensitivity for each other – a shared talent for keeping things fresh and modern, and avoiding the sorts of cliches that might normally hurt a bossa-revival set like this. The rest of the group features Luiz Alves on bass and Robertinho Silva on drums and percussion – and titles include "Malandro", "A La Donato", "Balanco Zona Sul", "Fim De Sonho", "Bossa Eterna", "Lugar Comum", and "Pingo D'Agua".

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Ao Vivo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1974. New Copy .... $18.99
A great new version of this excellent live set from 1974 – one that adds 5 extra tracks to a record that's already one of Gilberto Gil's best! Gilberto is playing here in a fairly stripped down form, and the recording focuses mostly on his soulful singing and choppy acoustic guitar – although there is a larger group on a few tracks that plays electric guitar and keyboards, but never in a way that interferes with Gil's presence as the leader. The set has the same moody feeling as his rare 1971 LP in English – done with a stripped down sound, and lots of haunting extended tracks that echo with a deeply personal quality! The performance includes a long version of the track "Joao Sabino", plus Joao Donato's "Lugar Comum", Caetano Veloso's "Sim, Foi Voce", and the tracks "Abra O Olho" and "Heroi Das Estrelas" – plus bonus tracks "Copo Vazio", "Dia De Festa", "Cibernetica", and "Dos Pes A Cabeca". Great stuff, and although it's a live album, it's still one of Gilberto's best records from the 70s! CD

Glaxo BabiesNine Months to the Disco ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1980. New Copy (reissue).... $16.99
The post punk debut of Bristol's Glaxo Babies – and one of the cooler blends of avant noise and oddly danceable mutant disco! The group is less concerned about song structure than they are with find a groove, weird as it may be, and playing it out in a way that puts your head a trance, and your body in motion. Lots of manic/frantic percussion, keyboard atmosphere, not necessarily sung vocals, and tripped out effects. They're in the same universe as early Gang Of Four and other dance music aware post punks, but it's in unique space all its own. Includes "Maximum Sexual Joy", "This Is Your Vendetta", "Seven Days", "Electric Church", "Promised Land", "Free Dem Cells", "Dinosaur Disco Meets The Swampstomp", "Slum", "Shake (The Foundations)" 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

John LennonPlastic Ono Band ... LP
Apple, 1970. Very Good .... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

New 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

Lumumba/Eni/CoroO Samba E Uma Festa ... CD
Tapecar/Discobertas (Brazil), 1974. New Copy .... $6.99
A festival of samba from mid 70s Brazil – a set that's packaged with an unassuming title and cover, but which contains a host of excellent samba tunes throughout! The artists' names are slightly submerged in the presentation – but the record smokes like some of the best music from the bigger samba acts of the time – and feels more like a single-artist set on 70s RCA Brazil, than some of the second rate material that you'd usually find in such a package. Titles include "Vira Vira" by Coro, "Terra Boa" by Lumumba, "Mangueira Em Tempo De Folclore" by Eni, "Dim Dim Dim" by Coro, "Rosa Maria" by Lumumba, "A Festa Do Divino" by Eni, "Vira Vira" by Coro, "Boi Da Cara Preta" by Lumumba, and "Rei Da Franca Na Ilha Da Assombracao" by Eni.

Paula Morelenbaum & Joao DonatoAgua ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2010. New Copy .... $24.99
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".

Early work by Dianne Reeves – recorded before her big days at Blue Note, but every bit as great! The album's got a smooth modern soul feel that's quite strong for the mid 80s – with no-nonsense arrangements that show the best of Dianne's rich vocal and emotional skills, and which polish up the act with only a minimum of larger backing and no overblown electronics. Titles include "Been Broken", "Lovers", "Be My Husband", "Heed The Sign", "sneaky", and "Willow". 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 .... $21.99
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

New UltravoxSystems Of Romance ... LP
Island, 1978. Very Good- .... $12.99
A pivotal album in the career of Ultravox – one that has the group shifting from their rougher roots, into the sweeter, more synth-styled sounds that became their lasting legacy on modern music! Gone is the quirkiness of the first few records, but in its place is one of the best (and first) efforts to refine earlier experiments with electronics into a tighter, more pop-styled mode – one that's aided strongly here by the production efforts of Conny Plank, whose work in the electric prog years of the German scene really help give this record a real sense of depth! Titles include "Slow Motion", "I Can't Stay Long", "Someone Else's Clothes", "Blue Light", "Quiet Men", "Dislocation", "Maximum Acceleration", and "Just For A Moment". LP, Vinyl record album

P-Vine (Japan), 1995. New Copy .... $28.99
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

Compost (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy Gatefold .... $15.99
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.

1975. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
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".

Doris MonteiroAgora ... CD
Mid 70s. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
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 3 bonus tracks that include "Massa Falida", "Dificilmente", and "Malvadez".

New Willie BoboBobo! Do That Thing/Guajira ... LP
Tico, 1963. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Atlantic, 1970. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We have to admit we find these records to be a lot of fun, but no one could possibly buy the spiel in the liner notes about their "effect on the imagination and subconscious of the listener". Two extended soundscapes here: side one is "The Psychologically Ultimate Seashore", side two is the "Optimum Aviary". As the notes say, play at any speed, for different psychological effects.

New Shinichi OsawaOne ... LP
Dim Mak, 2009. Used 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Electrified one minute, soulful the next – a really great little record that shows the true spectrum of talents from Shinichi Osawa! We first fell in love with Shinichi's music during his Mondo Grosso years – a strong run of soulful house and housey soul that was at the top of the Japanese scene in the 90s – and in recent years, he's really expanded his sound with harder beats, complicated instrumentation, and bolder, fuzzier guitar than before – almost showing the same sort of shift we've heard in the French scene over the past decade or so. This album's really got Osawa at the height of his powers – focused on key elements that make each track stand out with distinction – and showing his older strength of moving his music to match the spirit of his collaborators – especially on tracks that feature work by guest singers who include Nelson, Ania, Simone Rubi, Ultra Brain, and Princess Superstar. Titles include "Our Song", "Dreamhunt", "Maximum Joy", "Rendezvous", "The Patch", "Star Guitar", and "Detonator". LP, Vinyl record album

New Swell MapsJane From Occupied Europe (with download) ... LP
Rough Trade/Secretly Canadian, 1980. New Copy (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Even more experimental than the first album from The Swell Maps – a set that features some longer songs and a bit more tunes, but also a lot more weird sounds as well! Instrumentation is often slightly more conventional here, but usually taken to some very unusual places – odd tones and phrases that really mark the Maps as a key link between pre and post-punk sides of the British scene – and which give this record a timeless quality that's kept it essential for years! Epic Soundtracks serves up loads of cool instruments along with his drums – including some toys, violin, typewriter, and even a bit of mumbling – and Nikki Sudden drives the whole thing home with his droney guitar and great vocals. Titles include "Let's Buy A Bridge", "Robot Factory", "Big Maz In The Desert From The Trolley", "Mining Villages", "Collision With A Frogman Vs The Mangrove Delta Plan", "Whatever Happens Next", and "The Helicopter Spies".

New Timothy LearyTurn On Tune In Drop Out ... CD
ESP, 1966. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of the weirdest recordings we've ever heard from Timothy Leary – a 1966 set that features mostly shorter spoken bits on a variety of topics – done by Tim in a very odd sort of style – almost like he's a bit shy in the recording studio! There's a slightly self-conscious feel to the record that's actually kind of nice – Leary kind of mumbling, as if he's getting up the courage to share his ideas – or maybe he was just stoned at the time of the session! Titles include "My Problem", "Elevation Of Human Consciousness", "Sensory Paradise", "The Taking Of LSD", "The Oldest Law", "One Final Word", "Every Baby That Is Born", "Lesson Number One", and "A Message To Young People".

New Herbie MannBrazil – Once Again ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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

New Glaxo BabiesNine Months to the Disco ... CD
Superior Viaduct, 1980. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The post punk debut of Bristol's Glaxo Babies – and one of the cooler blends of avant noise and oddly danceable mutant disco! The group is less concerned about song structure than they are with find a groove, weird as it may be, and playing it out in a way that puts your head a trance, and your body in motion. Lots of manic/frantic percussion, keyboard atmosphere, not necessarily sung vocals, and tripped out effects. They're in the same universe as early Gang Of Four and other dance music aware post punks, but it's in unique space all its own. Includes "Maximum Sexual Joy", "This Is Your Vendetta", "Seven Days", "Electric Church", "Promised Land", "Free Dem Cells", "Dinosaur Disco Meets The Swampstomp", "Slum", "Shake (The Foundations)" and more.

New Tom McDermottBamboula ... CD
Minky, 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A contemporary pianist from the New Orleans scene, but one who's got a timeless feel that stretches back to Nola keyboard innovators from the full range of the 20th Century! Tom McDermott's got a command of the piano that can be extremely sensitive at times, but which is always inflected with a strong sense of rhythm, too – set up here with some slight Brazilian touches on the instrumentation, which makes the tunes ring out with a sense of melancholy you might normally find in vintage choro music. Instrumentation shifts a bit from track to track – so some numbers with soprano sax or clarinet sound more traditionally New Orleans – while others with bandolim and pandeiro bring out the more exotic style of Tom's music. Titles include "Atrapado", "The Big Man", "The Chrysanthemum", "Tango Ambiguo", "Santa Teresa", and "Bamboula". CD

New Stereophonic Space Sound UnlimitedFluid Soundbox (with download) ... LP
Dionysus, 2000. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The record's got a cool 60s-styled cover – and is filled with music to match, too – played by an international duo who've got a great ear for the best American modes of a few decades back! 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".

New Georges DelerueCent Mille Dollars Au Soleil/Les Morfalous ... CD
Universal (France), 1964/1984. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A pair of action soundtracks from Georges Delerue – both mighty darn nice! Cent Mille Dollars Au Soleil is from a cool early 60s thriller with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Lino Ventura – done by Delerue with music as bold as the action in the story, but balanced out nicely with some leaner, more evocative passages that hint at the direction Georges would take in years to come. The main theme recurs often, creating a nice sense of elliptical energy in the music – and tracks include "Quartier Arabe", "Mitch Mitch", "L'Enlisement", "Une Nuit Marocaine", and "L'Appel Du Desert". Next is a film from 20 years later – Les Morfalous – but also starring Belmondo, and scored by Delerue with surprisingly subtle touches – far less of the schlocky electronic music that was often used in other 80s thrillers. A few tunes are a somewhat bold, but mostly the style is spare and tense – orchestrations held back to a minimum, and some nice accordion lines that step out gingerly to feel the space of the music. Titles include "Objectif GMC", "C'Est L'Aventure", "Helene", "Piege Au Cimetiere", and "Les Morfalous". CD

New Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... CD
Mercury, 1964. Used .... 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". CD
