Joe HarriottJoe Harriott Swings High ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic lost slice of work by one of the greatest modern jazz forces on the British jazz scene of the 60s – Jamaican-born saxophonist Joe Harriott, known for his groundbreaking avant jazz sessions and his experiments with Indian classical music! The sound here is quite different than those two better-known aspects of Harriott's career – and represents a return to the hardbop style he was using in the late 50s, when first making waves on the London scene. However, that's not a bad thing at all – as the album's overflowing with modern jazz undercurrents, and almost has a fresh post-Mingus approach to the horn parts and rhythm progressions. The quintet includes trumpeter Stu Hamer, drummer Phil Seaman, bassist Coleridge Goode, and pianist Pat Smythe – all well-suited players for Harriott in such a mode, and working here in a style that recalls the first great moments of British jazz from the late 50s. Titles include "Strollin South", "Just Goofin", "Time For Love", "The Rake", "Blues In C", and "Tuesday Morning Swing". CD

New VariousUncompromising Expression – The Story Of Blue Note In 75 Singles (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly cool package from Blue Note Records – especially given its unassuming cover! The 5CD set looks at a really overlooked side of the Blue Note legacy – the label's strong line of 78 and 45 rpm singles over the years – many of which featured different mixes or performances than the better-known album recordings from the time! The set begins with the earliest years of Blue Note – and goes right up to the present, to include some rare promo or download-only tracks too – but the core focus is on the legendary Blue Note years of the 50s, 60s, and early 70s – with a tremendous amount of hard-to-find gems that were originally only issued as 7" records. The package features 75 tracks in all, with a sweet little book on all the material too – which includes all the session/lineup details for each cut – and titles include "The Thin Man" by Art Blakey, "Born To Be Blue" by Wynton Kelly, "Oop Pop A Da" by Bab's 3 Bips & A Bop, "Topsy" by Ike Quebec Swing Seven, "Summertime" by Sidney Bechet, "Safari" by Horace Silver, "Roccus" by Lou Donaldson, "Senor Blues" by Bill Henderson, "Blue Train (part 1)" by John Coltrane, "Oscalypso" by Curtis Fuller, "DB Blues" by Kenny Burrell, "The High & The Mighty" by Jimmy Smith, "Message From Kenya" by Art Blakey & Sabu, "Ain't No Use" by Jimmy Smith & Bill Henderson, "The Rake" by Dizzy Reece, "True Blue" by Tina Brooks, "One Mint Julep" by Freddie Hubbard, "Ernie's Tune" by Dexter Gordon, "Our Miss Brooks" by Harold Vick, "Miss Ann's Tempo" by Grant Green, "Change" by Donald Byrd, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Theme From Electric Surfboard" by Jack McDuff, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Robert Glasper, "Holding Onto You" by Derric Hodge, and "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Cassandra Wilson.

New Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $5.99
A fresh album from one of the stronger partnerships in avant garde jazz – sax titan Fred Anderson and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake – joined by some of the finest Chicago based players for set of slowbuilding, generously spacious material that might be even better their previous album for Thrill Jockey! Anderson's sax and Drake's drumming are as intuitive to each other as ever, and some bits of the record have a dual bass sound that really pulls us in! Josh Abrams and Harrison Bankhead bring the bass, with a great cello part by Bankhead on one track, and Jeff Parker plays some nice guitar. A masterful record with more of an ensemble approach than its predecessor! 5 long (or longish), languorously gripping tracks: "Planet E", "Strut Time", "For Brother Thompson", "From The River To The Ocean" and "Sakti/Shiva".

Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, & William ParkerBlue Winter ... CD
Eremite, 2005. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 19.99
A beautiful tribute to the strengths of these players working together in a trio – the sense of respect and patience they each have for each other – letting the sound come at just the right moment in just the right way, as things build together in this amazing way – then leap forth with a power that's even more incredible when all three musicians fall into step! Anderson's tenor gets lots of rich open space to roam around – with these deep tones that strongly echo a Coltrane legacy, almost more soulfully than other albums of this vintage – and Parker's bass is wonderful, as always, in a setting like this – and Drake's drums are a masterpiece of understatement. The set features four long improvisations – recorded live in a very warm space. CD

New Andy BeyShades Of Bey ... CD
Evidence, 1998. Used ... $6.99
Although we've been fans of Andy Bey for years (ever since his early 60s recordings with Andy & The Bey Sisters), we've got to admit that we're stunned at how successful his recent revival has been! This CD is probably the main reason for Andy's success – as it's a compelling batch of jazz vocal tracks that show Andy reinventing himself for a whole new generation of jazz listeners. The backing's by a nice small group that includes Gary Bartz, with whom Andy recorded extensively in the 70s – and the album includes a haunting reworking of Nick Drake's amazing song "River Man", plus a version of Dori Caymmi's "Like A Lover", Monk's "Straight No Chaser", and the moody "Dark Shadows", which was a page from Earl Coleman's songbook.

New Peter BrotzmannChicago Octet/Tentet (3CD set) ... CD
Okka Disk, 1998. Used 3CD ... $66.99
Very cool box set of 3 CDs' worth of material recorded by Peter Brotzmann and his amazing group of players on 2 trips to Chicago in the late 90s! The set – which is limited and numbered – features both live and studio performances by the Chicago Octet and Tentet, two provisional groups set up by Brotzmann comprised of Chicago mainstays – like Jeb Bishop, Ken Vandermark, and Hamid Drake – plus outsiders with ties to the Chicago avant scene – like Joe McPhee and Mats Gustafsson. The 3 CDs have an amazing amount of material, and are packaged in a handsomely crafted slipcase with a nice graphic. More excellent jazz from one of our favorite labels on the planet! Disc 1 ( live) includes long octet working of "Burning Spirit (For Kazuka Shiraishi)" plus tentet runs of "Other Brothers", "Old Bottles, No Wine" and "Aziz". Disc 2 features live tentet tracks "Divide By Zero" and "Foolish Infinity", and studio tentet tracks "Immediate Music" and "Makapoor". Disc 3 is all studio tentet material, with "Foolish Infinity", "Old Bottles, No Wine", "Other Brothers" and "Divide By Zero". CD

Vashti BunyanSome Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles & Demos 1964 to 1967 ... LP
DiCristina, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
Beautiful early work from British singer Vashti Bunyan – an important figure in the acid folk scene at the end of the 60s, heard here on some really wonderful work from a few years before! Some of the tracks have a really trippy style, and others are a bit more like conventional Brit girl pop of the time – but given a very weird twist overall, with a sound that's quite hard to describe! Vashti's vocals have these really dark qualities overall – and even when the backings are fuller (which often they are not), there's a sad, earthy feel to her singing. But equally great is her guitar work – heard with more prominence on most of the album's previously-unissued tracks from mid 60s tapes. Bunyan plays with these warm harmonics that kind of nestle and bristle underneath her vocals – pushing the tunes up with a sense of brightness in contrast to the voice – almost in a Nick Drake sort of way (and trust us, we don't throw around comparisons to his music easily!) The package is a wonderful look at these almost-lost years of Vashti's career – and it features both sides of her Decca and Columbia singles, an unreleased Immediate single, and a lot more tracks pulled from rare tapes from 1964, 1966, and 1967! Set features 25 tracks that include "Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind", "Train Song", "Love Song", "Winter Is Blue", "Leave Me", "How Do I Know", "Go Before Dawn", "Girl's Song In Winter", "Don't Believe", "17 Pink Sugar Elephants", "Someday", and "I Know".

New CerroneBrigade Mondaine – The Original Soundtrack Anthology (Vice Squad/La Secte De Marrakech/Vaudou Aux Caraibes) (3LP/3CD set) ... LP
Malligator/Because (France), 1978/1979/1980. New Copy 3LP & 3CD (reissue)... $79.99
A mighty great set – three rare soundtracks from dancefloor maestro Cerrone – none of which we ever see on vinyl here in the US! First up is Vice Squad (aka Brigade Mondaine) – a rare soundtrack from the mighty Cerrone – recorded right at the height of his electro disco fame, and with a very similar groove! The film was also titled Vice Squad in the US market – and the music here definitely echoes the sleaze of its subject matter – with loads of sweet clubby lines that are heavy in the keyboard styles you'll know from "Supernature" – but maybe even leaner and meaner here – with a stripped-down punch that makes for plenty of funky disco moments! The tracks are mostly groovers, but even the few mellow moments are great – and titles include "Phonic", "Give Me Love", "Make Up", "The Loft", "Strip Tease", "Experience", and "Deauville". The set follows with two more albums in the Brigade Mondaine series – both similarly groovy, with a wonderful mix of disco grooves and crime/cop soundtrack styles – and all three records come with original album sleeve artwork, and bonus CD versions of the material too!

Die Like A Dog QuartetAoyama Crows (180 gram pressing) ... LP
FMP/Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 2002. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
Heavy sounds from this mighty quartet – a lineup that features Peter Brotzmann on tenor, alto clarinet, and tarogato – plus Toshinori Kondo on trumpet and electronics, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums! The album spins out in relatively free space – with Drake's drums and Parker's bass propelling the music for most of the moments – and lots of compressed notes from Kondo's trumpet, which also then seem to be processed by his electronics – creating a mix between electric Miles Davis and a Varitone! The set includes the three-part suite "Aoyama Crows" – composed by Brotzmann, but feeling like some moody Japanese mix of fusion and avant from the early 70s. LP, Vinyl record album

DKV TrioSch8lhof ... LP

The DKV in all its fierce, raw power – a blistering onslaught of sounds from Ken Vandermark on clarinet and tenor, Mats Gustafsson on tenor and baritone sax, Kent Kessler on bass, Massimo Pupillo on electric bass, and both Hamid Drake and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! Although all players are capable of more sensitive sounds, the DKV is where they really like to let loose – especially Vandermark and Gustafsson, who prove again that they're still some of the most dynamic players of their generation – or, honestly, of any generation of avant jazz as well! Titles include "All In" and "All Out" – the latter of which spills over both sides of the record. LP, Vinyl record album

New Eric DolphyIron Man ... LP
Douglas/Celluloid, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A seminal set from Eric Dolphy – one of his most perfectly realized moments at the head of a larger ensemble – and a record that definitely set the tone for countless spiritual jazz sessions of the 70s! Dolphy recorded this session for Alan Douglas in 1962, and it features a larger array of players than you'll find on most of his records for other labels – the cream of the "new thing" players that were around New York at the time, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Prince Lasha on flute, Sonny Simmons on alto, and even Clifford Jordan on soprano sax – making a rare appearance on record on that instrument! Together, the players create a set of soundscapes that lies somewhere between Dolphy's Out To Lunch album, and some of the more modernist work by Mingus – a stunning batch of tracks that go out, but never too far. Titles include "Ode to CP", "Burning Spear", "Iron Man", and "Mandrake". LP, Vinyl record album

Nick DrakeBryter Layter ... CD
Island, 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is something else entirely – filled with jazzy phrasing, hypnotic lyrics, and arrangements that really go far beyond any cliches or contemporary work you might expect. The great Joe Boyd produced – and really helps give a strong focus to Nick's vocals and guitar – and the cool mix of added instrumentation – which includes organ and celeste from John Cale, flute and alto from Ray Warleigh, piano from Chris McGregor, and guitar from Richard Thompson. Drake's work is impossible to describe adequately, but if you've ever heard him, you probably stopped dead in your tracks the minute you first caught his voice. We still do the same – and it's a pleasure to have this one in stock! Titles include "Fly", "At The Chime Of A City Clock", "Hazy Jane", "Poor Boy", and "One Of These Things First". CD

GreyboyMastered The Art ... CD
Ubiquity, 2001. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
Excellent work from Greyboy – his first album in years, and well worth the wait! The set shows considerable growth in his style – yet should still also be extremely pleasing to fans of his older work, as he's kept the commitment to mixing heavy hip hop beats with tight funky jazz, and only expanded the mood to incorporate a lot of new influences. The mood of the album is nice and dark – and although a few tracks feature hip hop lyrics from Main Flow, the real strength of the set is in the instrumental grooves – augmented here by guest appearances by Dave Pike and Elgin Park. Titles include "Ghetto Boogie", "Mastered The Art", "Hold It Down", "Marrakesh", "Dealin With The Archives", "Bath Music", "Logan's Run", "Smokescreen", and "Mastered The Art (Nicola Conte Jet Sounds rmx)".

Catherine HoweWhat A Beautiful Place ... CD
Reflection/Numero, 1971. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
A beautiful early 70s debut LP from a then 20-year-old, Halifax reared Catherine Howe – produced and arranged by US jazz pianist Bobby Scott in a mode that manages to feel lush and opulent while never belying Catherine's warmth, intimacy and maturity – and quite possibly the best unearthed singer-songwriter folk gem we've heard in years! The sound is warmly baroque, and Catherine's lovely vocals and evocative songwriting style is sheerly natural – recorded in a fairly stripped down setting and fleshed out with strings by the London Symphony Orchestra. The mix of intimacy and grandeur makes the record a bit of stylistic cousin to Nick Drake's Bryter Layter – we take our Drake seriously and we don't throw that comparison out lightly! Released by a doomed Reflection Records, which closed up shop the same year, it was pretty much automatically relegated to obscurity. Now, thankfully is a fertile time for the rediscovery post 60s folkish gems – and this one is at the very top of the line. Would you expect anything less from the Numero Group? Titles include "Up North", "On A Misty Morning", "Nothing More Than Strangers", "My Child", "The Innocence Of A Child", "It Comes With The Breezes" and more – plus the bonus demo "In The Hot Summer" – which led to the next phase of Catherine's career at RCA.

Early 80s material from this legendary Cuban group! They're working in a mode that relies heavily on traditional forms and rhythms like Son, Bolero and Cha Cha, rather than some of the fiery fusion or hard Afro-Cuban electric funk of their 70s years, but this album reveals a subtle side to the group that sometimes gets lost on those more full on albums. 7 numbers in all, including "12 Y 23", "Calzada Del Cerro", "El Tata", "De Una Manera Espantosa", "La Vida Es Un Sueno", and "Dile A Catalina".

Kidd Jordan/Hamid DrakeNight In November – Live In New Orleans ... CD
Valid, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
Deeply soulful work from legendary reedman Kidd Jordan – an important figure on the New Orleans scene for many years, but one who's only finally getting his full exposure on recent records of this nature! The set features Jordan in duets with drummer Hamid Drake – as well as a solo moment from each – playing live, but in a studio, not a performance space – with the kind of upfront, personal focus the players might bring to a private creative session – although there's also a small group of listeners in the studio to give them even more response and direction. The set begins with a long alto and drums duet, then moves to a drum solo, a tenor/drume passage that runs well over 20 minutes, and a spare tenor reading of "Wade In The Water" by Jordan. The set's then completed by a 29 minute return to tenor and drums – with amazing energy from both musicians! CD

A Dutch dude, but one with a really universal appeal – and a quality that links his music to the hippest sounds of the UK scene on labels like Island or Harvest! Fon Klement is a singer-songwriter, but with none of the cheesier qualities that were coming into the American scene of self-indulgence of the early 70s – and instead has this great way of really holding back, and letting his English vocals slide in and out of well-crafted arrangements that beautifully blend bits of strings with folksier rock elements – all in a blend that's maybe not as hip as Nick Drake, but which definitely has a similar space in the universe. Titles include "It's You", "Wonder Why", "New Love", "Why", "Early Morning", "Song For A Blue Lady", and "Margaret". LP, Vinyl record album

Ron Frangipane and Brooks Arthur both helped out in the studio – and the set's got a clarity of vision that's way different than just another fuzzy-headed concept album – a heady brew of the group's core sounds augmented in really spaced-out, stretched-out ways – almost similar to the work that David Axlerod did with the Electric Prunes, but a bit trippier too.

The record's filled with everything that's great about the Monk/Rouse team in these years – an incredible interplay between sax and piano, served up over the sorts of angular tunes that Monk had been putting forth for years, but somehow at a level that's even more perfect, more "Monkish" than before! Other members of the group are Butch Warren on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Memories Of You", "Brake's Sake", "Stuffy Turkey", and "Shuffle Boil".

A wonderful follow-up to the incredible New World Pygmies set from saxophonist Jemeel Moondoc and bassist William Parker – one that not only features a double-length set of work, but also includes some guest drums from Hamid Drake on half the set! The core energy still really comes from the Moondoc/Parker pairing, though – a wonderful association that stands brilliantly here as some of the most soulful improvisation from the time – rich in spirit, strong in focus, and almost always swinging – with a balance between freedom and straightness that we really love. Tracks are all quite long – and CD one features a performance from Madison, while CD two features a Chicago set at the Velvet Lounge, with Drake on trap drums. Moondoc plays alto and soprano sax, and in addition to bass, Parker also plays bombard and gralle – on titles that include "Spirit House", "O'Neal's Porch", "New World Pygmies", "Blues For Katie", and "Three Clay Pots".

Fred NeilSessions ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Sealed ... $33.99
A real classic from one of our favorite artists of the 60s! Fred Neil is best known to the world as the man who wrote "Everybody's Talkin", which was used excessively in the film Midnight Cowboy (although his version in the film was sung by Nilsson) – but he's a hell of a great artist on his own, a real revolutionary that we'd rank right up there with someone like Tim Hardin or Nick Drake. This Capitol album has Fred playing in a very relaxed studio vibe – with some spare backing, and edgey playing that opens up a side of him that we've rarely heard elsewhere – all in a session that was largely improvised, and designed to recreate the feel of his legendary live shows. The tracks are fairly long, and include titles like "Felicity", "Send Me Somebody To Love", "Looks Like Rain", and "Fools Are A Long Time Coming". LP, Vinyl record album

Carthage/Omnivore, 1981. Used ... $6.99
Richard Thompson's strictly instrumentals set from 1981 – not just folk guitar – Thompson plays acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin and and more, only accompanied on the percussion – and the stylistic breadth is as wide as his musicianship is strong! Thompson utilizes modern recording innovations to to faithfully present a variety timeless folk instrumentalism here – remarkably strong material that covers many folk styles. Thompson's such a great songwriter, you'd think we'd miss his voice to much, but he's such a devoted musician, it's actually a great joy to simply listen to him play. Includes "New-Fangled Reel-Kerry Reel", "Vaillance Polka Militia-Belfast Polka", "Do It For My Sake", "Rockin' In Rhythm", "The Random Jig-The Grinder", "Andalus-Radio Marakesh", "The Knife-Edge" and more.

New Randy WestonBlue Moses (remastered edition) ... CD
CTI, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 11.98
Beautiful work from Randy Weston – and a unique electric session from the 70s! The feel is very different here than the angular modernism of Randy's roots – a warmer, more flowing sound – as you'd expect from the CTI label, and from Randy's use of electric piano as well as acoustic. The group is largeish, with key players who include Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter, Hubert Laws, and Grover Washington Jr – and although there's a larger horn section on the record, they mostly hang back and let the main soloists do their thing. Don Sebesky arranged, and the tracks are still originals with an African-inspired approach to rhythms – but more warmly soulful overall, as is the CTI way! Titles include "Night In Medina", "Marrakesh Blues", "Ganawa (Blue Moses)" and "Ifrane". CD

Norma WinstoneDance Without Answer ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2014. Used ... $9.99
Norma Winstone's always been a singer we've dug for years – especially her groundbreaking way of using her voice more as an instrument than a conveyer of words – something that Winstone inspired in whole generations of singers to come! Yet here, Norma also balances things nicely by bringing lyrics into play with the album's bass clarinet and soprano sax from Klaus Gesing and piano from Glauco Venier – a mode that shifts between vocal sounds and meaningful words, on numbers that are both penned by the group – and surprising choices of older classics, really reworked into new styles in this setting. Winstone brings a really fresh way of approaching songs like Nick Drake's "Time Of No Reply", Tom Waits' "San Diego Serenade", and Fred Neil's classic "Everybody's Talkin" – as well as that old Muppet favorite "Bein Green" – and she also really sparkles on original tunes that include "A Tor A Tor", "High Places", and "Dance Without Answer".

Columbia/Discos 605, 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.99
A groundbreaking record for the time – especially considering the barriers between American and Cuba! In a unique effort, Columbia Records managed to record this landmark concert set of performances featuring some of its biggest artists alongside other Cuban players – all captured live at the Karl Marx theater in Havana! This first volume is a very wide-ranging blend of styles – jazz, fusion, Latin, and bits of straight ahead vocals – handled by a diverse array of hip CBS superstars at the time, but often with a decidedly Cuban bent. Titles include "Black Market" by Weather Report, "Para Flauta Y Adaido De Mozart" by Irakera, "Cuba Al Fin" by Stephen Stills, "Project S" and "Black Stockings" by CBS Jazz All-Stars (Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Heath, Stan Getz, & Others), "Dark Prince" by Trio Of Doom, "Juan Pachanga" by Fania All-Stars, "Living Legend" by Kris Kristofferson, "Que Barla Monda" by Orquesta Aragon, and "Scherezada/Sun Sun" by Cuban Percussion Ensemble.

Columbia/Discos 605, 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.98
A rare cross-cultural session from 1979 – one in which Columbia Records was allowed to record live performances involving a number of American jazz musicians playing alongside Cuban groups like Irakere and The Cuban Percussion Ensemble! The blend of modes here is really great – somewhat in the territory of Irakere's albums for Columbia, but a lot wider-ranging overall – sometimes sensitive and jazz-based, sometimes much more upbeat and jamming! Jazz players include Dexter Gordon, Paquito D'Rivera, Jimmy Heath, and Stan Getz on tenor sax; Arthur Blythe on alto sax, Cedar Walton on piano, Jimmy Heath on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – as well as the members of Weather Report, who turn in one especially cooking number. Irakere plays "Mil Ciento De Junedad" and "Contradanza", Weather Report play "Teentown", Cuban Percussion Ensemble play "Scherezada/Sun Sun", John McLaughlin's Trio Of Doom play "Para Oriente" and "Continuum", and assorted jazz players handle "Tin Tin Deo", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Sounds For Sore Ears", and "I Wanna Be".

Arthur RussellWorld Of Echo ... LP
Audika, 1986. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Early November, 2014 (delayed)
An incredibly beautiful set of work from Arthur Russell – one of the few records to be issued under his own name during his tragically short life – and a hauntingly spare blend of vocals, hand percussion, and solo cello – recorded with more than enough echo to live up to the title! The style is incredibly hard to peg – at times delivered with an almost Nick Drake-like approach that's extremely personal, but also sharing some styles with the mellower work of Suicide and other New York art rock groups from Russell's generation. Russell's voice billows out in a field of echo, directed almost imperceptibly by resonant notes on an electrified cello, and bumped along by muted rhythms that have almost no "attack" but lots of delay. One thing is extremely clear: that the album, which virtually died upon release back in the 80s, was years ahead of its time – and has a quality that easily ranks it as one of the most inventive recordings of its decade. The whole thing's as surprisingly appealing as it is experimental, and this extra-deluxe package features a number of additional tracks. Titles include "Wax The Van", "Tone Bone Kone", "Answers Me", "Being It", "She's The Star/I Take This Time", "Tree House", "See Through", "Lucky Cloud", "Happy Ending", "Tower Of Meaning/Rabbit's Ear/Home Away From Home", and "Our Last Night Together".

VariousFunky Chicken – Belgian Grooves From The 70s Part 2 ... LP
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic funk from the Belgian scene of the 70s – a really mad mix of sounds and styles, and a really revelatory set overall! Few people might use the words "Belgium" and "funk" in the same sentence – but that may well change after this sweet set gets a few spins – as the whole thing's a stunning array of groovers that not only match the best jazz, funk, and sound library tracks from other European scenes in the 70s – they also do a great job of taking on the best America had to offer too! Belgium was no stranger to soul and funk – given its fervent 60s soul collectors scene, and the nation's role as a crossroads in Europe – which left it open to plenty of influence from visiting musicians, including American artists as well. You can definitely hear all that coming into play here – as the work is nicely fresh, and very free of overdone cliches or easy references – as these guys all take the best bits that might have influenced them, and jumbled them up into something really new. The scope of sounds is wonderful – and titles include "Memories" by Amadeo, "Viva Boma" by Cos, "Pop In Three" by The Rapture, "Smoke" by Leo Cavallo, "Marakesh" by Hein Huysmans Kwintet, "One For You" by Doug Lucas, "Put Everything Together" by Plus, "Lord Funk" by Super Funk Special, and "Humpty Dumpty" by Placebo.

The title definitely gets it right – as the quintet's an all-star lineup that features Marshall Allen on alto sax, Kidd Jordan on tenor, Hamid Drake on drums, and both Alan Silva and William Parker on bass! The twin basses are really wonderful – and have this deep texture that really shapes the performance – a sense of tone and timing that brings urgency to the record in a way that either player on their own wouldn't have been able to achieve – often with a sense of soul that really adds a lot to the reeds! CD features six long live tracks – all improvised by the group. CD

Two great days in April – each featuring some very free improvisation from a group that includes Fred Anderson and Kidd Jordan on tenors, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – a quartet with boundless energy, and a really rich sense of each other's place within the sound! The first day features a performance from Amherst, and a relatively fiery one at that – with these unbridled sounds from all players, and some especially tremendous saxophone lines from Anderson and Jordan – often soaring out together, but with a very individual sense of space. The second day is slightly more measured – a Cambridge performance that has some nice solo spots for each player. Both dates are very well-recorded – and packaged in the usual high Eremite standard!

Immediate, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautifully effective British baroque pop from the late 60s – Duncan Brown's Give Me Take You from '68 – and a great record that's centered around sweet vocals and lilting acoustic instrumentation! The record garners comparisons to classics like Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left and the Zombies' Odyssey & Oracle, but to us it has a bit more in common with some of the acoustic based psychedelic folk of the era, albeit with some more insistent hooks and melodies. Titles include "Give Me Take You", "Ninepence Worth Of Walking", "The Ghost Walks", "Chloe In The Garden", "On The Bombsite", "Gabilan", "Alfred Bell", "The Death Of Neil" and more, plus bonus tracks that feature rehearsal takes, alternate version and more! 12 tracks proper, plus 10 bonus tracks.

A great performance by the Chicago trio of Ernest Dawkins on reeds, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion – dedicated to their late scene-mate Fred Anderson, and played with an open, exploratory sound that Anderson would have loved! At times, there's a very unstructured quality to the recording – the most unfettered approach forged by the AACM – with Dawkins especially stretching out, on soprano, alto, or tenor sax. At other points, though, Bankhead's wonderful basslines pull things in, and give them a soulful solidity that underscores the spiritual elements of the music – that element in his sound we always appreciate, and which seems to bring Drake's percussion strongly into focus too – creating a groove that's almost like the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble at times. Titles include "One For Fred", "Waltz Of Passion", "Jah Music", "Down N The Delta", "The Rumble", "Sweet 22nd Street", and "Woman Of Darfur". CD

The birth of a legend, and easily one of the heaviest records to hit the mainstream in the late 60s! The album's got a sinister quality that you can hear on the first few notes – a low-end, rumbling approach that brings in a lot more fuzzy bass than other groups of the time had ever thought to use – all topped with some of the most wickedly edgey guitar put on record to date, and undercut by drums that are almost verging on funk at times! Basslines set the tone for most of the tunes in the set – creating a bottom-heavy groove that would be copped many times in years to come, but which still sounds tremendously fresh here in the original. Titles include "Mandrake Root", "I'm So Glad", "One More Rainy Day", "Help", "Love Help Me", "And The Address", and "Hey Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1979. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial or slick, but free from some of the jarring shifts in styles that occurred before – and more in that sweet combination of rootsy percussion and Latin funk that made them great at their best previous moments! All players are great – and the lineup is almost a who's who of Cuban jazz at the time – with Chucho Valdes on piano and keyboards, Paquito D'Rivera on alto sax, and Arturo Sandoval on trumpet – plus guitar from Carlos Emilio Morales, percussion from Oscar Valdes, and tenor from Carlos Averhoff. The tracks were recorded live at the Montreux jazz festival – and titles include "Adagio", "Ilya", "Juana Mil Ciento", and the long "Misa Negra (The Black Mass)". LP, Vinyl record album

New Mandrake MemorialMedium ... CD
Collectables, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great sounds from Mandrake Memorial – a record that's almost post-psych in its approach – in that it wraps together a host of beautiful elements from the 60s, but in a way that's got a leaner feel that almost makes it more sinister in the end! The balance is hard to describe in words – but there's almost a melancholy feel to the record that makes the keyboards and fuzzy guitar sound even more offbeat, even when moving in subtle ways – a bit like that shift that the Velvet Underground made when doing less instead of more in the post-White Light years. There's a bit of modulator on the record – which adds these cool electronic touches – and the vocals of Michael Kac are wonderfully unique – somewhere in a space between Tom Rapp and Tim Buckley, but very much their own thing too. Titles include "Witness The End", "Last Number", "Other Side", "Snake Charmer", "After Pascal", and "Smokescreen". CD

An incredibly beautiful album from Pearls Before Swine – one that uses light orchestrations to create a baroquely folksy sort of feel – easily elevating the album past previous efforts, into classic territory we'd rank with the best from Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen! The whole album's great – with fragile and haunting songs from Tom Rapp, all supported by sparsely arranged instrumentation that includes harpsichord, flute, oboe, cello, and dobro. Genius throughout – and a clear inspiration for music still being made 30 years later – with classic tracks that include "The Jeweler", "Rocket Man", "Song About A Rose", "The Old Man", "When The War Began", and "From The Movie Of The Same Name".

New VariousEve Folk Recordings ... CD
RPM (UK), 1965. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The earliest work of Donovan – presented here in the company of three other contemporary British folk acts who were handled by the same production team! The Eve Folk imprint was a short-lived offshoot of EMI that was designed to launch the career of Donovan, and also release full albums by some other great artists handled by producer/managers Peter Eden and Geoff Stephens – including Mick Softley, Bob Davenport & The Rakes, and Vernon Haddock's Jubilee Lovlies. Mick Softley is especially compelling – a singer with a depth of feeling and mix of timeless and modern that almost reminds us of Bert Jansch – and like Jansch, has a sound that a nice change from the US folk style of the time. The CD features Mick's full album Songs For Swinging Survivors, plus singles – with titles that include "After The World War Is Over", "The Bells Of Rhymney", "Strange Fruit", and "Blues For Cupid Green". Bob Davenport & The Rakes are a bit more traditional, with lots of Irish folk elements – from the song choice to the use of fiddle, flute, and accordion in the instrumentation – on titles that include "The Hexamshire Lass", "Jig", "Old Johnny Booker", "My Bonnie Lad", and "The Foggy Dew". Vernon Haddock's Jubilee Lovelies have a sound that lives up to what you might expect from their 20s-styled name – a bit of a string band approach overall, but one that has lots of weird, offbeat touches – in the manner of some of the more modern jug bands who were floating around the Greenwich Village scene at the time. The CD features their sole album – and titles include "Coloured Aristocracy", "Vickyandal", "Stealin", "Little White Washed Chimney", and "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down". Oh, and the 2CD set also features four tracks by Donovan too – "Catch The Wind (single)", "Colours (single)", "Goldwatch Blues", and "The War Drags On". CD

New AlzoLooking For You/Takin' So Long ... CD
Bell/Beatball (Korea), 1972/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 great records from singer/songwriter Alzo – an artist who's probably best known for his late 60s Mercury album as Alzo & Udine, but one who sounds equally great on his own! The first half of CD features the Bell album Alzo – a really unique little record that's soulful, folksy, and with a slight jazzy tinge at times! This solo album has a bit of a different flavor than Alzo's work with Udine, but the singing and instrumentation have a lot of nice jazzy changes – and the whole thing skips along with the same earthy, personal feel that made the earlier album so great. The whole thing's sort of in between Colin Blunstone and Nick Drake, but with a bit more of a soulful vibe – and an ultra-hip mix of styles that makes us wonder why Alzo wasn't hailed as the hippest thing going at the time. Bob (Multiplication Rock) Dorough arranged and produced, with a very groovy style – and tracks include "Country", "That's Alright", "Without You Girl", "Some People", "Lookin' For You", and "You Know Me, I Know You". Takin So Long is a a lost album from Alzo – tracks from sessions that Alzo recorded with arranger/producer Bob Dorough (who cut some of his own great work at the time) – done in an amazing style that blends together soulful vocals, folksy touches, and a sunshiney approach to the material that's really unique! All tracks are originals, and done with a brightly positive spirit that's held up tremendously well over the years – and which is perhaps almost even more compelling as a link between the turbulent times at the end of the 60s, and the troubling era we're faced with in the 21st century. Instrumentation is by a small group that includes Dorough, Jerry Dodgion, and Stuart Scharf – and titles include "Sweet Winds", "Come On Come On", "You Might Never Know", "Wouldn't You Love To Be There", "Can't Play A Part Of Me", "Takin So Long", and "Lead You By The Hand". CD features the bonus track "I Want You To Be A Part Of Me". CD

Amazing work from Nomo – their greatest album so far, and an incredible step forward in styles! Nomo started out as an already-great Afro Funk combo – but over the past few records, they've picked up a really hip range of musical influences – spiritual jazz, electronica, Congotronics, and other cool sounds – all of which are filtered perfectly into this set! The grooves here are unlike anything else we can think of – as tight as Nigerian grooves from the 70s, but stretching out with really jazzy solos – all inflected with some cool electronic touches underneath, but in ways that jam along strongly with the acoustic instrumentation. Leader Elliot Bergman picked up some great added help for this set – including contributions from underground jazz players like Hamid Drake, Josh Abrams, and Adam Rudolph – all of whom help shape the sound wonderfully.

New Nick DrakeBryter Layter (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Island, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is something else entirely – filled with jazzy phrasing, hypnotic lyrics, and arrangements that really go far beyond any cliches or contemporary work you might expect. The great Joe Boyd produced – and really helps give a strong focus to Nick's vocals and guitar – and the cool mix of added instrumentation – which includes organ and celeste from John Cale, flute and alto from Ray Warleigh, piano from Chris McGregor, and guitar from Richard Thompson. Drake's work is impossible to describe adequately, but if you've ever heard him, you probably stopped dead in your tracks the minute you first caught his voice. We still do the same – and it's a pleasure to have this one in stock! Titles include "Fly", "At The Chime Of A City Clock", "Hazy Jane", "Poor Boy", and "One Of These Things First". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – 180 gram vinyl, with textured cover like the original, and a bonus download in multiple formats!)

New Nick DrakeFive Leaves Left (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Island, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Godlike work from the legendary Nick Drake – and exactly the kind of record that's made him a continuing legend over the years! The style is completely its own – not really folk or rock, but not really jazz either – yet served up with plenty of jazzy phrasing that's helped keep Drake's music fresher than most as the decades move on – and which makes each song here a really rich discovery – even if, like us, you've heard the album hundreds of times in the past! The production is wonderful – with slight underscorings of strings that help unlock dark corners of the songs – and tracks include the classic "River Man" – easily one of Nick's best songs ever – plus "Fruit Tree", "Day Is Done", "Three Hours", "Saturday Sun", and "Time Has Told Me". A record we'd never part with – ever! LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy vinyl in the original gatefold-style cover – and includes bonus download for the album, too!)

New William ParkerWood Flute Songs Anthology – Live 2006 to 2012 (8CD set) ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 8 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Some of the most amazing work we've ever heard from this legendary bassist – a set that's not based around music from a wooden flute, but which instead refers to the instrument in its title – as an illustration of the very organic approach of the work within! The 8CDs offer up eight different unreleased live recordings – all of which showcase the deeply spiritual side of Parker's recent years – an approach that's even more so than his already-deep sounds of previous recordings – carried out at a level that's completely sublime throughout! This is the side of Parker that we've always reached for over the years, but haven't always found this easily – a mature musical vision informed not just by jazz, but by a host of other cultural influences, including film – as well as the exterior world of being. All recordings feature the core quartet of Parker on bass, Rob Brown on alto sax, Lewis Barnes on trumpet, and Hamid Drake on drums – and the CDs feature two discs of material from a May 2006 concert in Oakland; two CDs' of music from an April 2007 concert in Houston; a June 2009 performance in New York with the addition of Billy Bang on violin, Bobby Bradford on cornet, and James Spaulding on alto; an April 2011 performance in Geneva with the AMR Ensemble; a June 2012 show from Montreal with Leena Conquest on voice and Eri Yamamoto on piano; and a June 2012 show from New York with Cooper Moore on piano.

New William Parker Double QuartetAlphaville Suite – Music Inspired By The Jean Luc Godard Film ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual project from bassist William Parker – a great tribute to the legendary Godard film Alphaville, done with music that's a surprisingly great fit! There's almost a jazz soundtrack feel to the record at points – a bit straighter than usual for Parker, but still with plenty of edge – although other tracks sometimes get a bit more outside and improvisational, making for a really nice balance in the record. The core group features Parker on bass, Rob Brown on alto, Lewis Barnes on trumpet, and Hamid Drake on drums – which is then augmented by two cellos, violin, and viola – shading in the sound nicely. Parker really does a great job of capturing the quick shifts, bold moments, and striking qualities that make Godard's film so great – and titles include "Alphaville Main Theme", "Interrogation", "Alph 60", "Doctor Badguy", "Oceanville Evening", and "Civilization Of Light" – plus two versions of the great track "Natasha's Theme", a spiritual soulful number with vocals by Leena Conquest!

New TeaseTease (RCA) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day mode – tight tight tight rhythms from the group, done in a way that matches their sporty leather suits on the cover – with a sharpness that never lets up, and a great sense of a hook alongside the electric funk in the rhythms! Ollie Brown produced and arranged, and titles include "Bite", "Flash", "Boys & Girls", "Saturday Night", "Pretty Little Lady", "Put The Brakes On Baby", and "I Found In You". CD features two bonus tracks – "Flash (12" mix)" and "Flash (inst)". CD

New Fred AndersonOn The Run – Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Delmark, 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fred's not on the run, he's right at home – working at his own Velvet Lounge in Chicago, and blowing with the relaxed, open vibe that has made his performances at the club the stuff of legend! There's a great linkage here of styles from a few Chicago generations – the proud-toned tenors of the postwar years, and the freer modes of the AACM – played in trio formation by Anderson on tenor, with Tatsu Aoki on bass and Hamid Drake on drums. Most tracks are quite extended, and Anderson's got a great way of skirting the edges of freedom – keeping a soulful focus on his horn on the best moments, with echoes of Johnny Griffin and John Gilmore in his sound. Titles include "Ladies In Love", "On The Run", "Smooth Velvet", "Tatsu's Groove", and "Hamid's On Fire". CD

New Sophia Domancich/William Parker/Hamid DrakeWashed Away ... CD
Marge (France), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Extremely beautiful work from this trans-Atlantic trio – a group that mixes the lyrical piano talents of Sophia Domancich with the rock-solid rhythms of Hamid Drake and William Parker! Sophia's touch on the keys is really beautiful – improvised at points, but with a lot of warmth – and her tone really seems to set Drake and Parker's talents in a whole new light – a sound that's quite a revelation, and which makes this CD a lot more than we were expecting! The performance features three long numbers, handled beautifully by the trio – often starting with Sophia's ruminations on the piano, soon filled in with bass from Parker and percussion from Drake. Titles include the wonderful "Washed Away" – plus "Lonely Woman" and "The Seagulls Of Kristiansund". CD

A totally wonderful package – one that may well have you replacing all your previous copies of Nick Drake albums! The box features the complete recordings of Nick Drake – and each record is presented in very cool little LP sleeves – in "mint pack" versions – plus reproductions of five different promo shop posters for the records too – all wrapped up in a "tuck box" that replicates Nick Drake's own from his time in college! The set features the core three albums from Nick's too-short run – Five Leaves Left, Bryter Later, and Pink Moon – plus the posthumous collections of rare gems Made To Love Magic and Family Tree – the former with material designed for a fourth album plus rare gems, the latter with pre-Island material from Drake! 72 tracks in all – and a really beautiful package.

New IrakereQuince Minutos ... CD
Egrem (Cuba), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual 80s session from Irakere – one that seems to have them taking on the new decade's funky modes to replace some of the styles they used in the 70s! There's still lots of Latin jazz at the core of the set, but a few tunes show some more modern elements too – a bit of drum machine on one attempt at a hit, and some electric bass as well – but still woven strongly into arrangements by Chucho Valdes and Jose Luis Cortes that hold onto plenty of tradition. Titles include "Ruta 42", "Quince Minutos", "Linda Tierra", "Santiaguera", and "Hay Mucho Que Contar". CD

New David MurrayDavid Murray Black Saint Quartet – Live In Berlin (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 2007. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from David Murray – a set that's perhaps a bit less polished than some of his other recent albums, but one that more than makes up for that with a richly soulful sound! The group has a loose, freewheeling feel at points – and Murray seems to ride their spirit strongly with some great tones on his tenor – those instantly-compelling sounds that first made his work grab us so many decades back, but which don't always show up in recent years. Murray plays bass clarinet too, but it's his tenor work that we really love here – and the quartet features Lafayette Gilchrist on piano, Jaribu Shahid on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums. Most tracks are quite long, and filled with beautifully-spun solos – creative, rhythmic, and filled with life! Titles include "Dirty Laundry", "Banished", "Sacred Ground", and "Murray's Steps".

New Orchestra SuperstringKalopia (with download) ... LP
Dionysus, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A collection of cool sounds from the Orchestra Superstring – a contemporary lounge music project from a host of long-term LA hipsters – including the great DJ Bonebrake on vibes! Most of these musicians have a pedigree in other styles, especially rock – but they do a very good job of emulating the coolest, most complex styles of early 60s exotica – often with some slight jazzy touches that really keep things interesting, and push the groove way past any simple sort of retro gimmick approach! Other instrumentation includes a fair bit of percussion, plus accordion, keyboards, and even some "guitorgan" too – and titles are pulled from two previous CDs by the group, and include "Silberstrasse", "Evidence", "No Sho", "Waterbed", "Mambalita", "Kalopia", and "Ambrosia".

"New Direct Cutting" has some mighty sharp beats – a weird blend of hip hop production and late 60s space-age electronica – almost as if Perry & Kingsley hung out with DJ premier! "Sicherheits-Raketen" has a sound that's almost steel drum funk, but much more messed up – and peppered with some sweet German keyboards too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Peter WalkerHas Anybody Seen Our Freedoms? ... LP
Delmore, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime solo work from Peter Walker – a hell of a guitarist with a very edgy sound, and a vocalist with this dark tone that almost takes us back to some of the moodier moments from the early Velvet Underground! The combination is amazing – very deft, complicated lines on a Gibson Hummingbird steel string guitar – mixed with these moodily poetic lyrics sung starkly in a voice that's completely unique – often bursting out with the same energy as the movement of the guitar passages – ebbing and flowing with this subtle but amazing power! The approach is hardly folk, and has a darkness that goes way past most overstated records of its generation – a really essential record that maybe blows away our favorites from guys like Tim Hardin, Nick Drake, Leonard Cohen, and John Fahey. Titles include "Grey Morning Sun", "Wonder", "Fifty Miles", "Me & My Lady", and "Pretty Bird". LP, Vinyl record album

New Norma WinstoneDance Without Answer ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Norma Winstone's always been a singer we've dug for years – especially her groundbreaking way of using her voice more as an instrument than a conveyer of words – something that Winstone inspired in whole generations of singers to come! Yet here, Norma also balances things nicely by bringing lyrics into play with the album's bass clarinet and soprano sax from Klaus Gesing and piano from Glauco Venier – a mode that shifts between vocal sounds and meaningful words, on numbers that are both penned by the group – and surprising choices of older classics, really reworked into new styles in this setting. Winstone brings a really fresh way of approaching songs like Nick Drake's "Time Of No Reply", Tom Waits' "San Diego Serenade", and Fred Neil's classic "Everybody's Talkin" – as well as that old Muppet favorite "Bein Green" – and she also really sparkles on original tunes that include "A Tor A Tor", "High Places", and "Dance Without Answer".

This sweet series just keeps getting better and better – as the jerking compilers dig even deeper to bring up some really rare gems from the 60s! The work here is soul, but of the rocking type – or R&B, but of the more modern style – and the tracks come from a variety of labels, but all share a really bold, bracing approach to the music! The LP features a whopping 15 tracks in all – and titles include "Can't Nobody Do" by Reverend Cleosuph Robinson, "Say Yeah" by Andre Franklin with Preston Epps, "I Want Some Money Baby" by Tommy Ridgely, "You're Just One Man" by Ann Fleming, "I'm Not Teasing" by Lucky Laws, "The Trakey Doo" by Tony Allen, and "Persian Twist" by Herb Zane.
