New Rita LeeBuild Up ... CD
Philips/El (UK), 1970. New Copy .... $6.99
The first solo album by Rita Lee – cut back when she was a member of the groundbreaking Tropicalia trio, Os Mutantes! The album's got a very different feel than her work with that group – and has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after leaving the Velvet Underground. Arrangements have a weird twisted edge – as Rita makes her way through a set of originals and a few covers, in an almost deadpan, ice-blond mode that reminds us of some of Jane Birkin's early work. Arrangements are by the great Rogerio Duprat, and titles include "Sucesso, Aqui Vou Eu", "Prisioneira Do Amor", "Hulla Hulla", "Tempo Nublado", "Precisamos De Irmaos", and "Calma" – plus a nice cover of "And I Love Him".

Rita MossTalk To Me Tiger! ... LP
Dot, Early 60s. Very Good+ .... $23.99
Rita Moss was a weird one – but a great one too! As a female organist, she joined a long line of similar players on the instrument – like Shirley Scott, Trudy Pitts, and Rhoda Scott. But Rita's style was different than theirs, and it mixed up a lot of R&B and pop influences with her basic jazzy organ stylings. Plus, Rita also sang along with her organ – although not neccessarily in the best way you could imagine. This album's an odd mix of tracks that owes as much to Fats Waller's years on the organ as it does to the 60's divas – and it's got Rita singing the raunchy "Talk To Me, Tiger", plus "Fly Me To The Moon", "Red Balloon", and "He's Just Another Guy".

New Rita Reys & Pim JacobsOur Favorite Songs ... CD
CBS/Sony (Japan), 1973. New Copy .... $13.99
One of the most beautiful albums ever recorded by Dutch vocalist Rita Reys – done as a set of duets with longtime accompanist and life partner Pim Jacobs on piano! The setting is even more spare than some of Reys' trio dates – just voice and piano, the latter handled by Jacobs with this spacious quality that lets Rita really take the lead in all numbers, and inflect tunes with this sense of phrasing that really amazes us – and which provides one of the clearest examples of the touch that made her one of the best jazz vocalists on the European scene in the 60s and 70s. Titles include "Lover Man", "Two Sleepy People", "In The Wee Small Hours", "Where Or When", "When I Fall In Love", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most". CD

Maria RitaElo ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 2011. New Copy .... $29.99
Easily the best record so far from Maria Rita – a set that really pushes her talents a lot, and reaches for a wider range of expression! The vocals are still very much at the forefront – that great legacy from mother Elis Regina, with a similar heavenly approach that works with just about any sort of lyric – but the backings shift things around a good bit, too – moving between full, lush orchestrations, and some gentler, jazzier modes – and even a few cuts that have a lively sense of rhythms. Maria's great throughout – clearly standing strongly on her own, even without the family pedigree – on tunes that include "Santana", "Conceicao Dos Coqueiros", "So De Voce", "A Outra", "Nem Um Dia", and "Pra Matar Meu Coracao". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rita HovinkLove Me Or Leave Me (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Decca/Think (Japan), 1969. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ultra-hip vocals from Rita Hovink – a Dutch singer who's got a way of making even familiar material sound pretty darn fresh! Rita's working here with a cool combo that's got a great sense of arrangement – a way of opening up the tunes and finding some unusual instrumental modes that really pave the way for Hovink's vocal interpretations. The group features Rob Van Dijk on both piano and Hammond, and Wim Overgaauw on guitar – and a few tracks feature guest instrumentation from either Carl Schulze on vibes, Harry Verbeke on tenor, or Thijs Van Leer on flute. The tunes are almost all familiar, but done in very cool ways – and titles include "Sunrise Sunset", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "After You've Gone", "Don't Sleep In The Subway", "Goodbye Charlie", "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", and "The Fool On The Hill".

New Rita LeeBuild Up/Hoje E O Primeiro Dia Do RestoDa Sua Vida/Atras De Porto Tem Uma Cidade (3CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1970/1972/1974. New Copy 3 CDs .... Out Of Stock
The first three solo albums from Os Mutantes singer Rita Lee – all work that really follows in a great vibe from her key contributions to the Tropicalia scene! Build Up has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after leaving the Velvet Underground. Arrangements have a weird twisted edge – as Rita makes her way through a set of originals and a few covers, in an almost deadpan, ice-blond mode that reminds us of some of Jane Birkin's early work. Arrangements are by the great Rogerio Duprat, and titles include "Sucesso, Aqui Vou Eu", "Prisioneira Do Amor", "Hulla Hulla", "Tempo Nublado", "Precisamos De Irmaos", and "Calma" – plus a nice cover of "And I Love Him". On Hoje E Primeiro, Lee is clearly the star of the show – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". On Atras Do Porto, Lee hits a sort of space rock sound, with a weird set of materials that sort of mixes an early 70's space rock guitar sound with Wings-like production for a more pop feel. Our Portuguese is terrible, so we can't read the lyrics and get hip to the concept, but the inside cover has the band looking kind of like refugees from Spinal Tap or something. With the cuts "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa". CD

Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades!

Jorge BenNegro E Lindo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue).... $38.99
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious modes being explored by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo at the time – expressed here in some larger instrumental passages that shade the tunes lightly, while still letting Jorge step out strongly on vocals and the usual mix of tight percussion and raspy guitar. Titles include "Que Maravilha", "Rita Jeep", "Comanche", "Porque E Proibido Pisa Na Grama", "Cassius Marcelo Clay", "Palomaris", "Maria Domingas", and "Negro E Lindo". LP, Vinyl record album

Six Degrees, 2014. New Copy .... $13.99 14.98
Bossacucanova serve up the kind of bossa they do best – a sweet mix of classic instrumentation and contemporary touches – but they also work here with some great help from a rich array of guest artists, all of whom really help the trio to deepen their sound! The vocalists are especially important – a mix of older and modern singers that includes Wilson Simoninha, Marial Rita, Elza Soares, Emilio Santiago, Cris Delanno, Moska, and Teresa Cristina – working alongside guest instrumentation from Oscar Castro Neves on guitar, David Feldman on piano, and Roberto Menescal on guitar – all players who are really respected by the group, and given plenty of room to shape the tunes. It's been awhile since we've heard from the trio, and the time has really helped them sharpen their sound – and continue to find a way to persist, where so many of their contemporaries have fallen away. Titles include "Adeus America", "Segure Tudo", "Ficar", "Deixa Pra La", "Rio De Inspiracao", "To Voltando", and "Waldomiro Pena". CD

Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $7.99 16.98
Amazing electric grooves from synth innovator Bruce Haack – whose pioneering use of analog synths and vocoder vocals in the service of great, if far out songcraft was pretty much unrivaled in the 70s and into the early 80s – the period in which this excellent compilation on Stones Throw highlights! Haack's earlier successes were children's music in the 60s, and one of the coolest aspects of his 70s recordings was how that somewhat bright-eyed and innocent sing-song-y approached moved into more surrealist, weirder realms on albums like Electric Lucifer, that album's lesser known, still quite brilliant sequel, and albums like Haackula and Bite. Choice cuts from those albums as well as rare singles are rounded up for Stones Throw's impeccably curated overview. The electric voice and synth errata brings an otherworldly vibe to catchy songs – and Haack's use of the vocoder was followed by so many others who would become household names, from Kraftwerk to Pink Floyd. Amazing stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Electric To Me Turn", "Incantation", "Rain Of Earth", "Ancient Mariner", "Man Kind", "Rita", "Lie Back", "Snow Job"m "The King", "Party Machine" and more. CD

Osmar MilitoOsmar Milito E Deixa O Relogio Andar ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1971. New Copy .... $18.99
A beautiful album of post-bossa tunes – done by Osmar Milito in a dreamily floating style that's totally great – almost in the mode of some of Marcos Valle's work from the time! The record features the group Quarteto Forma singing vocals on a number of cuts – but the real charm is from Osmar's arrangements, which mix together piano, horns, and lively rhythms in a complicated way that reminds us of some of the best mix of jazz, soul, and baroque touches that showed up heavily in the Blue Brazil work of the EMI/Odeon crowd! No surprise, the album features great versions of Marcos Valle's "Garra", "To Rio For Love", and "Que Bandeira" – plus good covers of "Cantalope Island", "Rita Jeep", "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life", "Mudei De Ideia", and "Mercy Mercy Mercy".

A 70s classic from Zeze Motta – served up with a strong sense of presence in the vocals, but done with lots of cool compelling twists and turns in the arrangements! At times, there's a slight echo of new wave modes, but other points have a fuller approach to MPB – and a few other tunes even take on more of an older tropical feel, but with some nice contemporary arrangements – really balancing out the album's tunes – penned by Luiz Melodia, Rita Lee, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, and Chico Buarque. Arrangements are by Liminha – and titles include "Baba Alapala", "Pecado Original", and "Trocando Em Miudos". CD

Contemporary/OJC, 1978. New Copy .... $5.99 11.98
A nice lost late number from Art Pepper – a freewheeling set of tracks that really show the influence of John Coltrane on Pepper's work – cut with a quartet that includes George Cables on piano, Tony Dumas on "blitz bass", and Carl Burnett on drums. The tracks are long, and two numbers have a really nice Latiny flair – with Art spinning out some aggressive solos on top of fast-running grooves, in a way you'd be surprised to hear on one of his albums from the time! Titles include "Rita San", "My Laurie", "Ballad of The Sad Young Men", and "Mambo De La Pinta". CD also features one bonus track – "No Limit", which oddly wasn't on the original album – even though it's got the same title! CD

Dandy TeruAdventures ... CD
Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy .... $12.99 16.99
A great full-length set from Dandy Teru – a producer who's been making a fair bit of waves in the underground in recent years – finally stepping into the limelight here himself! Teru's got a great ear for a crispy beat and cosmic keyboard line – often fusing the two together in a trans-spatial way that creates a nice undercurrent of older soul and funk, yet which still retains a really contemporary vibe! This approach works really well for the range of talents helping Dandy out on the set – including Ty, Moka Only, Rita J, Quiet Dawn, Count Bass D, Tchad Unpoe, and Sarah Gessler – all different voices that help shape the sound of the record, and really unleash the variety in Teru's approach. Titles include "Fragile Things", "Below", "Wake Up Now", "Burned", "Waters", "Clouds Catcher", and "Rwvnll" – plus a few remix tracks too. CD

Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy .... $11.99
One of our favorite Cal Tjader albums ever – and one of the first to have his vibes working alongside Fender Rhodes! The record's a surprising little set from the start of the 70s – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them up with a hipper west coast electric style in the end – a Fantasy Records vibe that meshes together a few different modes, and comes up with a rich new style in the process! There's a bit of vocals on the set – somewhat unusual for Cal Tjader, and often used to augment the soulfully snapping grooves of the best tunes – but even more amazing is the heavy use of Fender Rhodes, played here by the amazing Al Zulaica, who's work on the album really ranks right up there with the best early 70s keyboardists on the coast! Zulaica's piano is amazing next to Cal's warmly chromatic vibes – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Bill Perkins, flute from Mel Martin, trumpet from Luis Gasca, moog from Rita Dowling, and percussion from both Pete and Coke Escovedo. Titles include the killer "Aqua Dulce (Cool-Ade)", a fantastic version of "Gimme Shelter", a sublime of Clare Fischer's "Morning", and the cuts "Ran Kan Kan", "Descarga Cubana", "Curacao", and "Somewhere In The Night".

The set shows a really lasting influence of this Beatle's music on Brazil – from early takes that echo a more direct relationship to Lennon's recordings, to later MPB reworkings that have things really running deep, and coming out in rich new ways! Titles include "Come Together" by Wilson Das Neves, "Because" by MPB4 & Quarteto Em Cy, "Norwegian Wood" by Milton Nascimento, "Love" by Ivan Lins, "How Do You Sleep" by Kadu Mota, "Meu Bem" by Ronnie Von, "Demais" by Veronica Sabino, "My Life" by Leila Pinheiro, "Child Of Nature" by Daca, and "In My Life" by Rita Lee.

Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place.

A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey! The work is as groundbreaking today as it was at the end of the 60s – a brilliant testament to the power of artists to really break down boundaries in art and music, and find a way to mix the political with the popular at the same time. Titles include a fantastic version of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso singing "Baby", the "Tres Caravelas" duet between Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, Gil's great reading of "Bat Macumba" with Costa and Veloso, Nara Leao singing "Lindoneia", Os Mutantes performing "Panis Et Circenses", Gilberto on "Geleia Geral, Caetano doing "Coracao Materno, and Rita Lee, Gal Costa, and Caetano Veloso singing "Enquanto Seu Lobo Nao Vem".

A great tribute to the concept of the "wants list" – that crumpled piece of paper that nearly every record collector carries around with them, a listing of hard to find recordings that they're always trying to track down! The set is a great mix of obscure 60s and 70s soul, with a real focus on the kinds of cuts that are all pretty darn important – but also equally hard to track down on their own. Mellow soul is the dominant groove here, making the package a winning set of some killer tunes that are equally appealing now as they were back in the day! Titles include "Touch Me Take Me" by Rita Wright, "Light My Fire" by Erma Franklin, "This Feeling's Rated X-Tra" by Carl Carlton, "One Girl Too Late" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Let Me Be" by The Duncans, "Mon Belle Amour" by Ann Pebbles, "I Think I'm Falling In Love With You" by Natural High, "I Just Got To Know" by Bennie Johnson, "City Of Brotherly Love" by Soul Survivors, "I'm Always Dancing To The Music" by Benny Golson, "Making Love" by Lou Ragland & GLO, "Hearts & Flowers" by GC Cameron, and "Beware" by Lou Courtney.

A rare live album recorded by the Mutantes during the years after Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista left the group, and when the only surviving original member Sergio Dias turned the group into a very competent progressive rock outfit. The sound is very different than their early albums, but it's actually pretty darn great, if you dig 70's era Yes or ELP. This live set has them jamming more than ever, with lots of long drawn out keyboard solos and guitar licks, and vocals that are a bit more soulful than on some of their other prog albums.

Casablanca, 1980. Very Good- .... Just Sold Out!
An extra clubby effort from People's Choice – a record that has them moving over to Casablanca after their albums for Philly International, but still staying strongly in their groove, thanks to production from Tom Moulton at Sigma Sound Studios! Tracks are upbeat, but funky – mixing the lead vocals and keyboards of Frank Brunson with some even more soulful female backing voices, and an overall groove that's in the tight Sigma mode that was starting to show up strongly at Salsoul. Tracks are long, but less disco than funky club – and the mix of male and female vocals together often creates a slightly righteous feel that you don't always get on this sort of record. Titles include "Warm Nights Soft Lights", "Bad Dancin Rita", "My Feet Won't Move", "Special Things For You", "If I Knew Then What I Know Now", "You Out To Be Dancin", and "Sweeter Than Honey".

Nice!!! This is the tightest full length effort yet by the extended Family Tree collective. Tone B Nimble, Capital D, Iomos Marad, Greenweedz, Rita J, Daily Plannet and the rest have reined in their sound for this one – a very strong set of classically-trained hip hop that should take another step towards establishing Chicago as a vital breeding ground for thoughtful, collaborative hip hop. Like recent work by J Live, J Sands, Lone Catalysts, Little Brother and other natural hip hop crews the Family Tree keep their feet firmly-planted in the roots – crisp samples, loose tongues, and innovative rhymes. The nod to School House Rock is appropriate – the Fam aims to entertain and enlighten – just as the landmark cartoon did, and if they manage to teach some people how strong the Chicago hip hop scene can be, we couldn't be any happier!

Guy was already developing a strong pedigree as a songwriter by this point, but much like his peer Billy Joe Shaver, the personal feel of the songs come across in a deeper way, when done by the man himself. He's backed by an impeccable group of musicians, too, including Bob Wills' Texas Playboys fiddler Johnny Gimble, Willie Nelson's go-to harmonica player Mickey Raphael, and harmony vocals by Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle. Includes "Rita Ballou", "LA Freeway", "She Ain't Goin' Nowhere", "A Nickel For The Fiddler", "That Old Time Feeling", "Texas-1947", "Desperados Waiting For The Train", "Like A Coat From The Cold", "Instant Foffee Blues" and "Let Him Roll".

New Frank FosterFearless Frank Foster ... LP
Prestige, 1966. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible album from tenor giant Frank Foster – one of his best records ever, with an impeccable soul jazz groove that's light years beyond his earlier work! The record has a bit of the feel of Frank's album with Richard Davis for Impulse, but takes off in a slightly different direction – tightly grooving, with a bit of a searching feel that points towards Foster's Coltrane-inspired later years. Frank's on tenor, and the rest of the group includes Virgil Jones on trumpet, Al Dailey on piano, Bob Cunningham on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums. The rhythmic component of the session is tremendous, and titles include "Disapproachment", "Baby Ann", "Janie Huk", and a great version of his "Raunchy Rita". LP, Vinyl record album

Black Cat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Marc 4 were one of the all-time great studio combos of the Italian scene of the early 70s – and they cut an amazing amount of fantastic music that was used in obscure Italian films and TV shows at the time. This set's one of the best we've ever seen to collect their work – and it brings together 24 stunning tracks that very ably show the band's talent to mix together funk, jazz, and various groove and psyche influences that were running through the early 70s vogue for hip soundtrack work. Plenty of great guitar and organ riffing, and 100% groovy all the way through! Titles include "Rita", "Catherine", "Max", "Berkey 70", "Inchiesta Sulla Mafia", "Distortion Mind", "Luna", "Key Board", "Happy Beat", "The Sound", "Boxes", and "Beat Generation". Very nice!

Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista are still in the group at this point, and they're working amidst a heavy wave of guitars that echo out with a bit of keyboards and some rhythms that are chunky enough to almost be called funky at times, but sweet and dreamy at others – all produced with a flanged-out finish that makes the whole thing sound great! Titles include "Balada Do Louco", "Todo Mundo Pastou II", "Cantor De Mambo", "Dune Buggy", "Rua Augusta", and "Posso Perder Minha Mulher, Minha Mae, Desde Que Eu Tenha, O Rock and Roll".

New Jimmy SmithSit On It/Unfinished Business ... CD
Mercury/Soul Brother (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great late 70s work from Jimmy Smith – two albums back to back on a single CD! One of our favorite later albums from organist Jimmy Smith – and a set that cooks heavily in a wicked blend of jazz, funk, and soul! The style's a bit like the groove that Johnny Hammond hit during his Gears period – arranged by Eugene McDaniels and Alan Silvestri, with an approach that's somewhere between Larry Mizell and Skip Scarborough – tight grooves, bits of vocals, yet plenty of room for Smith's keyboard solos to take off over the top! Players include Herbie Hancock on piano, Alan Silvestri on guitar, and Lenny White on drums – but the main star is Jimmy – who's grooving massively over the top of the album, with soaring solos that are some of his best work from the late 70s. Our favorite track on here is a masterful take of "Can't Hide Love", but there's a lot of other nice funky tracks like "Slippery Hips", "My Place In Space", and "Give Up the Booty". Unfinished Business is mighty soulful business from the great Jimmy Smith – a set for Mercury Records that updates his sound slightly, yet also hits some classic Hammond lines too! Jimmy plays a bit of acoustic piano and keyboards in addition to his classic organ – and works here in a setting that's tightly arranged, yet mostly small combo – with work from Ray Crawford on guitar, Nolan Phillips on tenor and flute, and added percussion from Buck Clarke and Stephanie Spruill. Rhythms step along nicely in kind of a 70s take on 60s soul jazz modes – leaving lots of room for Jimmy to open up on his solos – but there's also a few other more ambitious moments, including a great take on "Serpentine Fire" arranged by Ronnie Foster – and a warmly wonderful "Stevie" – which is a suite of tracks dedicated to Stevie Wonder. Other titles include "8 Counts For Rita", "Blues For Charlie", "Until It's Time For You To Go", and "Norristown PA". CD

Polygram/Lilith (Italy), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (reissue).... Out Of Stock
A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey! The work is as groundbreaking today as it was at the end of the 60s – a brilliant testament to the power of artists to really break down boundaries in art and music, and find a way to mix the political with the popular at the same time. Titles include a fantastic version of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso singing "Baby", the "Tres Caravelas" duet between Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, Gil's great reading of "Bat Macumba" with Costa and Veloso, Nara Leao singing "Lindoneia", Os Mutantes performing "Panis Et Circenses", Gilberto on "Geleia Geral, Caetano doing "Coracao Materno, and Rita Lee, Gal Costa, and Caetano Veloso singing "Enquanto Seu Lobo Nao Vem".

Teru's got a great ear for a crispy beat and cosmic keyboard line – often fusing the two together in a trans-spatial way that creates a nice undercurrent of older soul and funk, yet which still retains a really contemporary vibe! This approach works really well for the range of talents helping Dandy out on the set – including Ty, Moka Only, Rita J, Quiet Dawn, Count Bass D, Tchad Unpoe, and Sarah Gessler – all different voices that help shape the sound of the record, and really unleash the variety in Teru's approach.

A wonderful testament to the legacy of Malian singer, flute player and group leader Sorry Bamba – documenting his years leading the Kanaga Orchestra Of Mopti throughout the 1970s – and a great, vital release on Thrill Jockey! The region's musical heritage is intergral to Sorry Bamba's music, but it's also relevant and contemporary to its period and ours – with guitar, bass, organ and horns along with more earthy percussion. His style of songs is pretty amazing, too – and often done with a sense of humor that could be easy to overlook to outsiders – but there's no overlooking how great the music is. Beautifully done by Thrill Jockey, compilers Alex Minoff & Ian Eagleson – with input and insight from Sorry Bamba himself.

The debut as a leader from bassist Harrison Bankhead – long an important figure on the Chicago jazz scene as a sideman, really stepping forth here with a bold new vision of his own! The album's got a very free, open sort of vibe – definitely in the spirit of the AACM, but with some 70s spiritual touches too – especially once things get going, and some of the more rhythmic tracks take hold! The group features the great Ed Wilkerson on tenor, clarinet, and didgeridoo – sounding great, and returning a favor to Bankhead after the bassist's years in Wilkerson's groups. Other players include Mars Williams on saxes, James Sanders on violin, Avreeayl Ra on drums and percussion, and Ernie Adams on more percussion – a lineup that's equally well-suited to free improv numbers, and some of the more groove-oriented tracks. Titles include "Over Under Inside Out", "Chicago Senorita", "East Village", "Morning Sun/Harvest Moon", and "Flying Through Your Dreams". CD

One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from the legendary Phil Cohran – a previously-unissued performance from 1993, and one that's every bit as wonderful as his rare albums of the late 60s! The set was recorded at the planetarium in Chicago – and for the date, Cohran comes up with a really cosmic sound – a small combo that's heavy on string sounds from guitar, bass, and harp – layered together beautifully to create these Alice Coltrane-like undercurrents – over which the group solos with flute, trumpet, and trombone! There's less players here than on some of Cohran's older Artistic Heritage Ensemble sets, but the sound is exactly like those records – right down to some key moments in which Phil plays his amazing Frankiphone – an electrified kalimba with a tremendous tone. Titles include "White Nile", "Cohran Blues", "The Dogon", "Sahara", "Kalahari", and "Kilimanjaro". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleArmageddon (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Katalyst, 1968. New Copy Gatefold .... $9.99
A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble – material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing – much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ever heard from Cohran – almost in Sun Ra Arkestra territory at times, given the group's out-there playing, and bold collective action! The lineup is similar to other Cohran recordings from the time – Phil on cornet, Henry Gibson on congas, Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, and Aaron Dodd on tuba – a group that's a wonderful bridge between the two important Chicago generations headed by Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire. Armageddon is an extended piece, divided up into five different musical acts – conceived by Cohran in the late 50s, and recorded here in 1968 – with some great help from The Spencer Jackson Family on the leadoff track "Motherless Child". Other titles include "Creation Of The Beast", "The Warning", "The Window", and "Armageddon" – a clear reference to the power of the atom bomb! CD

Aestuarium/Tizona, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue).... $19.99
Mindblowing – and a landmark recording that crosses all boundaries in the Chicago music scene of the late 60s! Philip Cohran was a visionary musician who'd played with Sun Ra during the 60s, but who left Ra to forge his own musical vision by the middle part of the decade. The Artistic Heritage ensemble was a crucially important group in Chicago – one that drew players from both the soul and jazz scenes, with a wealth of talents that later went onto work with groups like Earth Wind & Fire, The Pharoahs, Ra's Arkestra, and other ensembles. Talents on this set alone include players like Charles Handy, Don Myrick, Aaron Dodd, Henry Gibson, and Louis Satterfield – not to mention Cohran, who plays cornet (as he did with Sun Ra), plus two groovy instruments of his own invention: the violin uke and the great Frankiphone, a sort of electric thumb piano whose use on these recordings pre-dated the very famous Kalimba sound that Earth Wind & Fire would use to great success during the 70s. The album includes the driving conga funk track "Unity", the singing soulful track "The Minstrel", the incredibly haunting "On The Beach", and the track "Motherhood", which has a strong Abbey Lincoln type of feel. The whole thing's a beautiful batch of spiritual jazzy tracks with a good groove – and a perfect blend of soul and spirit, jazz and righteousness! Beautifully packaged, too – a special 2LP set with fidelity that goes way beyond the original pressing! LP, Vinyl record album

The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".

Duncan SistersDuncan Sisters – Disco Recharge (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Earmark/Harmless (UK), 1979. New Copy .... $14.99
Sweet Canadian disco from the team of Phyllis and Helen Duncan – recorded in a style that features longer tracks, pulsating rhythms, and some of the instrumental flourishes that were stepping out on some of the best Prelude records of the time! The pair trade vocals wonderfully throughout – often with a lot more force and presence than most other female disco groups, especially the trios of the time – and the grooves come from the powerhouse studio team of Ian Guenther and Willi Morrison, who you might know from other projects like Rhythm Heritage or THP Orchestra. Titles include "Boys Will Be Boys", "Love Is On The Way", "You Give Me Such A Feeling", "Sadness In My Eyes", "Rock Along Slowly", and "Outside Love". CD features bonus 7" mixes of four tracks too!

Ethnic Heritage EnsembleMama's House Live ... CD
Katalyst, 2008. New Copy .... $9.99
It's hard to believe the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble is 35 years old – especially when Kahil El'Zabar looks so young on the cover, and when the group's sound is fresher than ever! The album's got a really beautiful, timeless sort of feel – spiritual jazz that few groups can play this well – balanced between El'Zabar's percussion and kalimba, the trumpet of Corey Wilkes, and the saxes of Ernest Dawkins – all key players in the Chicago scene, carrying on a rich tradition of AACM expression and other spiritual sounds. The album's wonderfully free from gimmicks – some of the most back to basics work we've heard from Kahil in years, and a great reminder of why we first fell in love with his music a few decades back – and the balance of the two horn players over percussion really creates a strong sense of power in the record – a bold vision that comes through beautifully! Titles include "Barundi", "Kari", "Oof", "All Blues", and "Ornette". CD

EuphoriaEuphoria ... CD
Heritage/Beatball (Korea), 1969. New Copy .... $18.99
Sweet sunshiney wonderfulness from an incredibly groovy group – a quartet of voices who are equally trained in folk and harmony modes, but who move into some even hipper territory on this record! The album was arranged by Joe Renzetti and produced by Jerry Ross – and it's got a nicely balanced approach that's poppy, but never too much so – that great part of the post-folk generation that's come to be known as Sunshine Pop, and which is rarely presented with such perfection as on a set like this! Roger and Wendy Penney were the lead vocalists – and instrumentation includes electric autoharp and keyboards from Roger, plus bass from Wendy. Backings are often light and breezy – a perfect fit for the vocals – and titles include "Sun & Shadow", "What A Day", "There Is Now", "Ride The Magic Carpet", "Sleep", "Calm Down", "Walkin Thru The City", and "Tucscon".

Bill EvansEverybody Digs Bill Evans (with bonus track) (Jazz Heritage) ... CD
Fantasy/Jazz Heritage, 1958. Used .... $4.99
Everybody Digs Bill Evans – or at least it certainly seems that way from the cover endorsements by Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and Ahmad Jamal – but the real proof is in the record, and the set is a great one from Bill's classic years on Riverside! Evans is at the peak of his early powers here – working with a straightforward rhythm combo that features Sam Jones on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but still hitting those beautifully fluid, beautifully spacious lines that set his playing apart from most who'd come before him. Tracks include 3 solo numbers – "Lucky To Be Me", "Peace Piece", and the very short "Epilogue" – plus trio tracks "Night & Day", "Minority", "Tenderly", and "Oleo". Includes the bonus track "Some Other Time". CD

New Nico FidencoZombi Holocaust ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy .... $18.99
One of the grooviest zombie soundtracks you'll ever hope to own – courtesy of Italian sex maestro Nico Fidenco! Nico scored plenty of previous sex romps before this film, and really brings that heritage into play – as he mixes sweet keyboards and weird electronics with some moodier elements designed to invoke the living dead – who then seem encouraged to dance by some of the funkier moments in the set! The whole thing's way different than the usual Italian horror score of the time – and is much closer to some of Fidenco's groovier material of the 70s – including some of the more exotic sex scores as well, given the use of percussion on some key tracks. Titles include "From The Beyond", "Fascinating Horror", "Make Love On The Wing", "Living In The Past", and "Dive Into The Past". CD

Clare FischerManteca! ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1966. New Copy .... $15.99
One of our favorite albums ever from the great Clare Fischer – and one of the first to really show his special talents at their best! The sound here is a wonderful blend of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes – and in addition to piano, Clare plays plenty of organ on the date – which bristles with this cool, clear sound amidst larger backdrops that have a very driving feel! There's lots of percussive energy at the bottom of the bigger group tracks – thanks to work from Latin percussionists Carlos Vidal, Cuco Martinez, Chino Valdes, and Rudy Calzado – and some of the other cuts feature a smaller group, but still with lots of great percussion! Clare's organ has this feel that's very different than the usual Hammond jazz style – and really sounds great throughout – on a batch of tracks that includes a key reading of his classic "Morning" – plus the cuts "Manteca", "Favela", "Afro Blue", "Dulzura", and "Negrita".

Roulette/Jazz Heritage, 1951. Used .... $8.99
A great CD that combines volumes 1 and 2 of Stan's early live recordings at Storyville – excellent small group sessions done with a group that includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Al Haig on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Tiny Kahn on drums. The mix of guitar and tenor is great together – a sound that became one of Stan's calling cards in the early 50s – and even the live setting can't stifle the strength of his unique tone. The CD features a total of 13 cuts in all – and titles include "Budo", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Yesterdays", "Thou Swell", "Mosquito Knees", and "Parker 51". CD

Stan Getz & Charlie ByrdJazz Samba ... CD
Verve/Jazz Heritage, 1962. Used .... $3.99
One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia".

Richard HaversStones In The Park – The Summer Of 69 & The Making Of The Greatest Rock N Roll Band In The World (hardcover) ... Book
Haynes (UK), 2009. New Copy .... $8.99
Nice hardcover look at The Rolling Stones circa '69 – a huge year of cultural change in general, and it was just as massive to the Stones! Things were getting deeper and heavier for the Stones, artistically and personally – with Brian Jones departing and passing away – and Mick Taylor joining the band. It was also right around this time they were solidifying their legend well beyond mere rock and roll stars. The book is centered around The Stones' massive concert in Hyde Park that summer, which to that point was one of the biggest ever held in Britain – and the book is filled with some of the best photos we've ever seen of that event – and so many more of that band – in action and behind the scenes.

Elmore James/John BrimWhose Muddy Shoes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1950s. New Copy .... $13.99
A great entry in the Chess Heritage Series at the end of the 60s – one that features rare 50s Chicago recordings by Elmore James, plus some even more obscure sides by lesser-known singer John Brim! James' style is well known, and well-executed here – rough and raw, but with a good sense of focus – on tracks that include "Whose Muddy Shoes", "I See My Baby", "My Best Friend", "The Sun Is Shining", "Madison Blues", and "Talk To Me Baby". Brim is great too – a singer we didn't know before this record, with an all-out kind of quality in his voice that's almost a bit like some of the rougher soul of the 60s at times. Brim sings "Lifetime Baby", "Ice Cream Man", "You Got Me", and "Rattlesnake". CD features two bonus tracks – an alternate of "The Sun Is Shining" and the track "Gary Stomp". CD

New Kazimierz JonkiszTiri Taka ... LP
Polskie Nagrania/Musa (Poland), 1980. Near Mint- .... $19.99
Soulful fusion from Poland – a group led by drummer Kazimierz Jonkisz, and featuring piano, soprano sax, bass, and a bit of electric violin! The groove is a bit in the Michal Urbaniak mode – although not as way out, with a good focus on ensemble modes on the heads of each tune – similar to American soulful fusion of the time – before the band then makes their way through some longer solo moments. The feel is often surprisingly rich and full – a bit like some of the best R&B-tinged fusion coming out of the US in the mid to late 70s – especially on the Columbia label – and the players here are all top-shelf, and really open up as the tunes roll on. There's none of the too-jamming modes that can sometimes show up in more rock-based fusion records from the Eastern scene – and instead, there's a sensitivity here that shows up even on the more upbeat numbers. Titles include "We're All Waiting", "Tiritaka", "For Slawosz", "Joewer", and "For Marc". LP, Vinyl record album

Although Shake Keane was one of Britain's best modern jazz players of the late 50s and early 60s, his star had fallen somewhat by the time he cut this album of dreamy instrumentals with the big band of Johnny Keating. Still, the record's not a bad batch of pop jazz tunes – with Keane's trumpet right out front, and Keating laying down some very tasty arrangements in his tight easy style of the mid 60s. Titles include "Wives & Lovers", "Bachinas Brasileiras No 5", "Small World", "Lost In The Stars", and a very strange version of "Like A Woman", the Frank Loesser song, not the Dylan one.

The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best Italian soundtracks from the time, no surprise, as Martelli had his hand in a few from that era! The music is really great, with some excellent sax and flute work that takes the tracks into a jazzier mode than usual for this sort of thing! Loads of great percussion too – and titles include "Loco Love Motor", "Mondo No", "Krypto Blues", "Ma ne Vale La Pena", "90th Compleanno", and "Sara Stato Il Futuro". LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk Quartet with John ColtraneThelonious Monk Quartet With John Coltrane At Carnegie Hall ... CD
Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1957. Used .... $2.99
A rare gem of a session – live material recorded by the Voice Of America in 1957, and featuring a unique Thelonious Monk quartet with John Coltrane on tenor! The performance is contemporaneous with Coltrane's appearance on the legendary Monk's Music album for Riverside – and the overall feel here is a bit similar to that classic. Yet the live setting also allows Coltrane to open up and improvise a lot more – stretching out in fluid lines that are often a strong contrast to the more angular notes coming out of Monk's piano. Rhythm is by the team of Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass and Shadow Wilson on drums – and titles are broken up into an "early show" and "late show" – 9 numbers in all that include "Bye-ya", "Epistrophy", "Nutty", "Crepuscule With Nellie", "Monk's Mood", and "Evidence".

The score has that totally sublime Morricone quality that you'll find on on a small handful of his best works – like La Donna Invisible, Photo Prohibite, Le Casse, and Metti Una Sera A Cena – and it's filled with amazingly precise orchestral washes of sound, pierced by smaller solo instruments, tuned with strangely angular qualities. If you've ever wondered why people think Morricone's one of the 20th century's best composers – this is the kind of CD that will open your mind. The whole incredibly complex, yet never too academic – and always extremely pleasant and lovely to listen to! We love this one to death and it's an honor to have it in stock! Titles include "L'Assoluto Naturale", "Sempre Piu Verita", "E Facile", "Il Profumo Della Tua Pelle", and "Sembaravi Desiderare" – and this limited CD features 7 more bonus tracks too! CD

Something of an addition to the Verve "songbook" mode of the 50s – but it's also one that's a lot more dynamic than the others, thanks to some very jazzy arrangements from Billy May! The groove here is very upbeat and jazzy – hard-swinging in the manner that May forged with Sinatra over at Capitol, with lots of twists and turns in the backings that really help transform the tunes! Anita's dynamic vocals really match the spirit of the arrangements – and soar out with a quality that's some of her best and boldest at Verve.

Like that group, Larry's got a great way of balancing full strings and orchestral touches with a tighter, more solid groove for the dancefloor – sometimes using vocals in the lead, but always falling back to the core instrumental sound that's really his best suit.

Some of the best work we've heard in years from the legendary Eddie Palmieri – sounds recorded especially for a film on pick-up basketball in New York City, and done with a style that really takes us back to Eddie's best records from years back! The music is very jazzy – with long passages that feature strong solos on piano from Palmieri, vibes from Joe Locke, and baritone sax from Ronnie Cuber – played with a freewheeling intensity that goes way beyond any scene-setting need of a film score, and which is filled with the mix of spontaneous energy and sophisticated ideals of Palmieri's best compositions. The percussion is wonderful, too – very rootsy, and beautifully recorded – and the whole thing is punctuated by a few short spoken bits from the film. A true treasure to file next to your Fania classics – with tracks that include "Jibarita Y Su Son", "Bata 2nd & 3rd Movement", "Give The Drummer Some", "Coast To Coast", and "More Moves/The Chef".

A classic meeting of two giants from the early years of bop – altoist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie – brought together here in a session that Norman Granz would later list as one of the truest realizations of his vision for recording jazz music! Parker's sharp lines are a great contrast to the robust horn work of Diz – and the players work here with a rhythm section that features Thelonious Monk on piano, Curley Russell on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums. Titles include "Relaxin With Lee", "Leap Frog", "Oscar For Treadwell", and "Mohawk". The LP also includes a number of alternate takes, and has a nice photo of the 2 jazz giants on the cover.

A nice little score from the great Piccioni – penned for a mid 60s film about a bullfighter! Given the setting, there's a number of tracks on here that have a slight flamenco tinge – but there's also plenty of other tunes done in the wonderfully seductive early Piccioni jazz style – recorded in such a way that brings out some elements in a very weird-sounding mix that really points the way towards the Piccioni sound at the end of the 60s. Great titles include "Ziryab's Love", "Bossa Nova Marina", "No Dice Na", and "Improviso", a weird organ number that sounds like it was lifted from The Tenth Victim! CD
