Rita AbatziI'm Burning, I'm Burning – Beautiful & Haunting Greek Urban Songs 1933 to 1937 ... LP
Mississippi, Mid 30s. New Copy ... $12.99
Forget that you can't understand the language, forget that you may not have heard the style before – this music is amazing, and completely captivating right from the start! Rita Abatzi has this incredibly moving voice that goes way beyond the barriers of language or culture – quite powerful, but never in an overdone way – just filled with feelings inflected by these deft twists and turns that match the light folksy stringed instrumentation of the tunes – played with tones that are every bit as blue and melancholy as Rita's vocals. The approach is very unique, and goes way beyond any other Greek music of this nature we've heard – and translated titles include "Two Hearts Pained", "In The River My Clothes", "The Doe", "I Can't Cry Anymore", "Mother Please Don't Send Me To America", and "Girl From Lalio". LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto Gil & Rita LeeRefestanca ... LP
Som Livre (Brazil), 1977. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A strange one! Gilberto and Rita team up in a live set – ostensibly trying to relive the glory days of Tropicalia, but more showing the new strength of MPB in the 70s. Rita's backing is by the Tutti Frutti rock band, who has the same kind of style as you'd guess from their name. Stick to the cuts that feature Gil's backing band Refavela – who are in a prime 70s funky mode, especially on the album's versions of "Odara" and "Domingo No Parque", which are both great. Rita and Gilberto duet on "Refestanca", "Get Back", and "E Proibido Fumar", which should show you where all the energy from "Prohibido Prohibidar" has gone! LP, Vinyl record album

Rita LeeBuild Up ... CD
Philips/El (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $4.99
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".

Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1970/1972/1974. New Copy 3 CDs ... $34.99
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

Rev-Ola (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – 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.

Rita ReysRita Reys Sings Burt Bacharach ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful recording of Burt Bacharach classics – done by Dutch singer Rita Reys, in a setting that makes the album one of her best from the 70s! Rita's got this airy, open style of vocalizing – a bit like Morgana King, but not as heavily handed – and that style really turns out to be perfect for Burt's music – as Reys kind of flows, steps, and drifts over the tunes with effortless ease – at a level that's maybe even better that Dionne Warwick's famous interpretations of the material. Arrangements by Rogier Van Otterloo also match the mode just right – full orchestrations, but always very light – kind of pillowy, right underneath Rita's voice – gently gliding through tunes that include "Windows Of The World", "This Girl's In Love With You", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "A House Is Not A Home", "One Less Bell To Answer", and "Paper Mache".

Rita ReysRita Reys Sings Michel Legrand ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Dutch singer Rita Reys takes on the work of French soundtrack maestro Michel Legrand – and the result is one of her greatest albums of the 70s! Rita's take on Legrand's work is a bit different than some of her contemporaries – a bit more fluid, and somewhat emotive – almost more so than the original Legrand recordings used for film soundtracks. But it's also that approach which makes these tunes stand out nicely – a presentation that adds a new level of feeling to the music, and which is augmented by some great guest work by Louis Van Dyke on piano and Toots Thielemans on harmonica! Arrangements are by Rogier Van Otterloo, and include a few tracks with added voices behind Rita's lead. Rita sings in English throughout – and titles include "Ask Yourself Why", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Where Is The Love", "The Hands Of Time", "Pieces Of Dreams", "The Years Of My Youth", and "The Summer Knows".

Rita Reys with Johnny GriffinThat Old Feeling ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A really special session from Dutch jazz singer Rita Reys – one that not only features familiar accompaniment from the trio of pianist Pim Jacobs, but which also includes some key tenor work from the great Johnny Griffin! By this point in her career, Rita had recorded quite often with Jacobs – and the duo had a relaxed, comfortable approach with each other – so the inclusion of Griffin really makes the record stand out from the pack, and has a deeper sense of soulfulness when Johnny steps in and brings his magical tenor into play! The Griffin solos are surprisingly strong, given the setting – well-crafted with the sort of subtle genius he was really displaying at this point in his career. Titles include "My Foolish Heart", "Mr Wonderful", "Poor Butterfly", "The Touch Of Your Lips", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "Isn't It Romantic". CD

A stunning debut from Maria Rita – the daughter of Elis Regina and Cesar Camargo Mariano, a team responsible for some of the greatest music in Brazil during the 70s! Maria has a sad and sweet voice – a lot like her mother's, and recorded here in a setting that includes light jazz, bossa, and samba touches. Very nice stuff overall, and sure to get her career started on the right foot. Titles include "A Festa", "Agora So Falta Voci", "Menininha Do Portao", "Dos Gardenias", "Veja Bem Meu Bem", "Cupido", "Lavadeira Do Rio", and "Encontros". CD

New Rita HovinkLove Me Or Leave Me (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Decca/Think (Japan), 1969. Used ... 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 Reys & Pim JacobsOur Favorite Songs ... CD
CBS/Sony (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

New Maria RitaElo ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

New Rita MossTalk To Me Tiger! ... LP
Dot, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

All Natural & Family TreeFamily Tree Presents... Tree House Rock ... LP
All Natural, 2003. Near Mint- 2LP ... $9.99
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! Tracks include "Spit It", "I Am", "Blow The Spot", "Motive", "Virgo", "Rocks For You", "Horse", "Flow", "Push, Move, Build", "Save It", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Elvin Jones & Richard DavisHeavy Sounds ... CD
Impulse, 1967. Used ... $9.99
Heavy Sounds, indeed – a beautiful little set of dark-edged soul jazz from the mid 60s – co-led by bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones! The sound here is a bit different than any work ever released by either player as a leader – and is almost more in the vein of Blue Note or Prestige work of the same period – hardbop turned towards more soulful notes, but also still touched with a degree of modernism. A key element in the group is Frank Foster on tenor – whose blowing here is superb, and really on a par with his own albums as a leader from the time – marking a strong sound away from too many years of Basie influences! Frank does a killer job on his own "Rauncy Rita", taken here in a nice sexy groove, and stretched out nice and long with a very sinister feel – and other tracks include "ME", "Summertime", and "Elvin's Guitar Blues", which actually features Jones on guitar!

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!

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/Shout (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $8.99
The classic People's Choice album for Casablanca – plus bonus single mixes and unissued tracks! The original album is an extra clubby effort from the group – one 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 But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Special Things For You", "If I Knew Then What I Know Now", "You Out To Be Dancin", and "Sweeter Than Honey". This CD edtion from Shout UK opens with the 45 Mix versions of "You Ought To Be Dancin'" and "My Feet Won't Move But My Shoes Did The Boogie", and it closes with the unissued "Always In My Heart" and "Bad Bad Rita", plus "Hey Everybody!

Dore/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A treasure trove of soul from the legendary LA indie label Dore Records – home to some of the finest 60s sides on the west coast – a top-shelf lineup that's never been represented this well! Dore had a few key groups at the time – a young Whispers, and the excellent Superbs – but also cut work by some other great artists too – all with a level of care and class to match the best soul sides coming from New York or Detroit at the time! The Dore approach manages to have a sparkle without losing any sort of edge – careful production and instrumentation, but a real respect for the voices in the lead, too. This style works especially well with groups – as you'll hear on the set – but also graces some great cuts by single singers, too – in a lineup that includes "Doctor Love" by The Whispers, "Where There's A Will There's A Way" by Eddie Kool, "Baby's Gone Away" by The Superbs, "Do It Right Now" by The Entertainers IV, "Your Ship Of Fools" by Ray Marchand, "My Lonely Feeling" by Milton James, "The Winds Kept Laughing" by Betty Turner & The Chevelles, "You Really Never Know Till It's Over" by The Vel-Vetts, "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by Rita & The Tiaras, "Do The Skin" by Kenard Gardner, "Oh How I Love You" by Little Johnny Hamilton & The Creators, and "Hold Back The Dawn" by Frances Lark.

A stunner of a soul set – put together to support the film on England's Northern Soul scene! The package is worth it for the music alone – a massive 28 tracks that stand together as one of the sweetest Northern Soul collections we've seen in years – a really great choice of material that mixes classics from the scene with the sort of newly-discovered gems that have really kept the scene going for far longer than anyone might have expected back in the 60s and 70s. All work here is of late 60s vintage, and the heavy box includes fourteen 7" singles – all in pic sleeves too – with a special 60 page book of shots from the movie too. Titles include "Back Street" by Edwin Starr, "Your Autumn Of Tomorrow" by The Crow, "I Really Love You" by The Tomangoes, "Stick By My Baby" by The Salvadors, "Come On Train" by Don Thomas, "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Suspicion" by The Originals, "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by Rita & The Tiaras, "Time Will Pass You By" by Tobi Legend, "I Surrender" by Eddie Holman, "I'm Cumun Home In The Mornun" by Lou Pride, "You're Wanted & Needed" by Gwen Owens, "They'll Never Know Why" by Freddy Chavez, "Crying Over You" by Duke Browner, "Exus Trek" by Luther Ingram, "Tear Stained Face" by Don Varner, and "Seven Day Lover" by James Fountain. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousShe Did It – The Songs Of Jackie De Shannon Vol 2 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Jackie DeShannon was a hell of a singer on her own, but she also wrote some really wonderful tunes in the 60s – great material that was performed by a host of artists in a wide range of styles – from soul, to rock, to pop, country, and beyond! This collection brings together some of the best of Jackie's tunes sung by other folks – with a really surprising mix of material that includes key contemporaries in the 60s, plus really unusual later cuts that show that DeShannon's songwriting influence lasted far longer than her own recording career! The package is done with great notes and lots of details – in the best spirit of the songwriters series on Ace – and titles include "I Wanted It All" by Rita Coolidge, "I've Got My Tears To Remind Me" by Dave Berry, "It's Just Terrible" by The Kalin Twins, "You Don't Understand Him Like I Do" by Jeannie Seely, "Yesterday Died" by Jimmy Holiday, "Put A Little Love In Your Heart" by Dorothy Morrison, "Bad Water" by Doris Duke, "He Did It" by The Ronettes, "My Baby Likes Western Guys" by Brenda Lee, "Burn On Love" by The Righteous Brothers, "Colour Blue" by Peter & Gordon, "My Group & Me" by Raga & The Talas, "Boat To Sail" by The Carpenters, and lots more!

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.

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 real turn in direction for Os Mutantes – working here in the early 70s without Rita Lee, and in a vein that's much more progressive overall! The album's still got plenty of playful twists and turns, but the overall songs are quite long and often jamming – making strong use of the increasing talents of Sergio Diaz on guitar and Arnaldo Baptista on keyboards – both of whom get in plenty of solos on the set. There's a seriousness here at times that was missing from other work, and – if we dare say it – there's an earnest quality that we never would have expected from the group! Titles include "Hey Joe" (not the Hendrix cover, but an original by the group), "A e o Z", "Rolling Stones", and "Voce Sabe". CD

An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! 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. Essential! 3LP version includes 9 long tracks, with a couple versions extended and longer or otherwise alternate versions than the CD mixes, including the 17+ minute A-side opener "Ain't No Mountain High Enough Parts I & II" (JM extended 4AM mix), "Breaking Down (Sugar Samba)" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Julia & Company, "Barely Breaking Even" (demo version) by Universal Robot Band, "I Ain't Mad At You" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Tony Adderly, "Never Can Say Goodbye" (demo version) by La-Rita Gaskin, "Move To The Groove" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Margie Joseph, "You Got (That Something)" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Logg and more.

Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best late 70s Brazilian novela soundtracks – and a set that's got a fair bit more sophistication than some of the others in its genre! Part of the strength here is the album's use of top-shelf talent throughout – an array of mostly female vocalists who include Gal Costa, Elis Regina, Maria Bethania, Maysa, Simone, and Quarteto Em Cy – all working here on some really great tracks! Many of the numbers have a laidback and gently grooving quality – that warmly compressed MPB production style that often had traces of jazz – sung in ways that are sensitive, but never too soporific. Titles include a great version of the Joyce tune "Feminina" by Quarteto Em Cy – plus "Paula E Bebeto" by Gal Costa, "Comecar De Novo" by Simone, "O Bebado E A Equilibrista" by Elis Regina, "Mania De Voce" by Rita Lee, "Que Me Venha Esse Home" by Fafa De Belem, and "Dois Meninos" by Maysa.

New Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

New Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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.

One of the greatest new albums from this legendary conga player! Although Francisco Aquabella is probably best known to Dusty Groove customers for his 70's funk classic "Hitting Hard", or his work with the group Malo – in recent years, he's emerged as quite an important player on the Latin jazz scene, and is starting to return to the recording scene in a strong way. This album slightly predates Aguabella's current efforts for Cubop, but it's a similar session, with an excellent Latin jazz groove, and a moody mellow feel that shows Aquabella's heritage as a west coast Latin player. Charles Owens is in the band on reeds, and most of the tracks are instrumentals, with only occasional vocal choruses. The Latin Jazz component of the album is very very strong – and this is a totally satisfying session throughout! Titles include "Short History", "Intensity", "Wood Place", and "Nena". CD

Gene Orloff handled some of the larger arrangements, but the focus is always on Akkerman's deft work on the guitar – and titles include "Britannia", "House Of The King", "Javeh", "Lammy", and "A Fantasy".

Fantastic! This is another one of Franco Battiato's amazing recordings from the 70's, and it features two extended pieces – "ZA" and "Cafe Table Musik". "Za" is a long piece for solo piano, with lots of spare minimal moments, and haunting trancelike lines of chords that build very very slowly. It's a beautiful exercise in restraint, and the kind of haunting soundscape that Battiato is legendary for. "Cafe Table Musik" is a bit more complex, although it's still got minimal piano progressions as its core. The piano builds in sweet overlapping lines, and is interrupted briefly by a female voice, which sings and speaks in Italian, and there's also an occasional male voice speaking in an authoritative tone. Very hard to describe, but completely haunting, and very very beautiful. Plus, it's a favorite for just about everyone who works here! CD

The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy guitars to give a razor sharp edge to the groove! A few tracks have vocals, but it's the funk rock instrumentals that drive this one into pulp soundtrack classic status. Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove", "Chain Fight", "Dan's Theme", "Scoobee Doo" and the killer "Wheels (Main Title Theme)".

Katalyst, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 11.99
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

Great lost work from the legendary Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble – a composition that was recorded during the group's late 60s years on the Chicago scene – but which has never been released until now! The album stands beautifully alongside the group's self-titled classic and their tribute to Malcolm X – and like those amazing records, this one has a feel that's all its own – an exploration of Moorish elements in Spanish culture – which comes off as a Latin-inflected sound with African roots! The lineup here is similar to other Cohran classics – Donald Myrick on baritone sax, Charles James Williams on alto, Eugene Easton on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, Aaron Dodd on tuba, Pete Cosey on guitar, Henry Gibson on congas, and Louis Satterfield on bass – a mix of musicians that includes members with Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire listed in their resumes! Cohran's vision in the suite is wonderful – and the music has all the depth and righteous energy of his self-titled record, but a bit more Latin fire too – a beautiful blend that really makes us appreciate his genius even more than before, and which finally gives us another record of his to love after all these years.

Phil Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass EnsembleKelan Philip Cohran & The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 2012. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 19.99
An amazing bit of music – and an incredible document of generations of creative jazz energy as well! The legendary Phil Cohran teams up here with Hypnotic Brass Ensemble – a collective made up of Cohran's sons, who follow strongly in the rich legacy of his own Artistic Heritage group – yet in a very different way! Hypnotic Brass have caught the ear of many during their bright rise to fame – with a fluid, horn-heavy groove that's really amazing – echoes of Sun Ra and other Chicago creative legends – yet played almost entirely on brass instruments, which gives them an even bolder vibe. Here, working with their progenitor brings the group even more depth than before – an excellent sound that really spins things out wonderfully – percussion layered underneath the horns, solos taking jazzy flight, and an overall righteous vibe that holds things together beautifully. The album's way more than the sum of its parts – and those parts are already rich indeed – and titles include "Stateville", "Cuernavaca", "Ancestral", "Spin", "Zincali", "Apsara", and "Frankincense & Myrrh".

Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleMalcolm X Memorial (A Tribute In Music) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
A brilliant tribute to the late Malcolm X – served up by Chicago's legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble! The record's got an even farther-reaching sound than the group's self-titled effort – a flowing style that unfolds as their tribute to Malcolm rolls on – starting spare and earthy at first, then picking up a fuller, prouder, much more righteous groove as things really get going! As before, there's plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom of most tracks – topped by complicated horn passages that often verge on the exotic – and which have a tremendously captivating sound. The ensemble's led by the great Phil Cohran, who played with Sun Ra for a bit, and also plays cornet on the record – the rest of the group includes Charles Williams, Don Myrick, Louis Satterfield, Pete Cosey, Henry Gibson, Willie Woods, and Aaron Dodd – a lineup of players who also worked with Sun Ra, The Pharoahs, and Earth Wind & Fire! The LP's a suite of 4 tracks dedicated to Malcolm X, each capturing a period of his life, "Malcolm Little", "Detroit Red", "Malcolm X", and "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz". CD

Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleOn The Beach (aka Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 12.99
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. Plus, the CD also includes 2 bonus cuts – "New Frankiphone Blues" ( a funky monster that was only ever out on a 7" single), and a great live version of "Unity" from 1968. 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! CD

Zulu/Midday Music, Late 60s. Used ... $16.99
Amazing work from the legendary Phil Cohran – and a much-needed collection of his rare singles on the Zulu label! The work here is contemporary to the sides issued by Phil's Artistic Heritage Ensemble on their two famous records – but the sound is often a bit tighter, and funkier too – kind of the 45 distillation of sounds the group was working out in larger format on the full albums! As with those classics, the approach is amazing – a hip blend of jazz, soul, and African elements – very much in the spirit of Sun Ra, Cohran's predecessor on the Chicago scene – but often with a lot more groove, and a lot less avant garde elements. Players on the set include Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on baritone, Charles Handy on trumpet, Louis Satterfield on bass, Pete Cosey on guitar, and Henry Gibson on timbales and conga – all working at a level that easily rivals the best from Ra, Salah Ragab, Mulatu, and other space jazz legends from the time! Titles include "The African Look", "Loud Mouth", "New Frankiphone Blues", "Frankiphone Blues", "Detroit Red", "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz", and "Black Beauty". CD

Ethnic Heritage EnsembleBlack Is Back – 40th Anniversary ... CD
Katalyst, 2014. Used ... $9.99
The 40th Anniversary of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble – but celebrated by a wonderfully fresh version of the group! The lineup here features the solid, soulful percussion of Kahil El Zabar – who also wrote and arranged all the music too – plus the great Ernest Dawkins on reeds and the bold Corey Wilkes on trumpet! The mixture of trumpet and saxophone is sublime – stretching out over Kahil's spacious percussion at a level that unlocks a spiritual sound that the AACM never even expressed this strongly back in the 70s – a nicely open vibe that stretches out, but still hangs inside at most moments too – a bit like some of El Zabar's famous collaborations with David Murray, but with the addition of trumpet in the mix. Titles include "The Awakening Of 2012", "Creole Peppa Stew", "Walk The Talk", "Can You Find A Place", "Black Is Back", and "Be Bop". CD

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

Cobblestone, 1972. Very Good- ... $9.99
Sublime early 70s work from Jimmy Heath – a record that shows that he was really stretching out with a new sound in the decade – even away from his better-known sides with The Heath Brothers! Jimmy plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax beautifully on the record – with a tone that's incredibly soulful, and even better-blown than his recordings of the 60s – a style that's got a new sense of spiritualism in the post-Coltrane years, one that really stretches out magnificently on the longer tracks in the set. The group's great too – and features Kenny Barron on both acoustic and electric piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Tootie Heath on drums, and Mtume on percussion. Heath plays flute, soprano, and tenor – with a group that includes Kenny Barron, Bob Cranshaw, and Mtume. The group performs Mtume's "Alkebu-Lan (Land Of The Blacks)", plus "Heritage Hum", "Angel Man", "Sound For Sore Ears", and "Gap Sealer". LP, Vinyl record album

Syleena's got a style that's got some of the bluesy touches of her heritage, but she's working in a style that's got smoother touches of modern R&B – creating a nice juxtaposition that makes for a very striking sound. The album features some guest production by R Kelly – and titles include "I Am Your Woman", "You Got Me Spinnin", "Hit On Me", "He's Gonna Do You In", "Ain't No Love", "You Ain't Right", and "All Of Me".

Sparely funky, yet heavily atmospheric hip hop productions from unsung titan Kankick – made up mostly of late 90s material – and it's right up with some of our favorite leftfield producers of the period! Kankick was perhaps best known as a Lootpack affiliate around this time, and sure enough, it's the kind of thing that would have sounded right at home on Stones Throw in the label's infancy. This ain't baby stuff, though, and it has aged incredibly well! Raw beats laced by vinyl grit, occasional hazy vocals and trippy atmosphere to spare. Relatively little heard excellence from an unsung producer! Includes "The A-1 Sound", "Witness Truthful Mystics", "One Reason Why", "A Song For My Forefathers", "Look At That", "Amplified Dynastical", "Lady Slick" feat Unorthodox, "Unpredictable", "FLS (Do You Like)", "Night Shine", "Oodles Of Ounces", "Aquarian Meditation" and more.

Capitol/Jazz Heritage, Early 50s. Used ... $9.99
A seminal work in the development of the American jazz avant garde, and one of the most "out" records that Kenton (or Capitol) ever released! The whole album is based around two startling compositions by Robert Graettinger – "This Modern World" and "City Of Glass" – and both are chilling longform works in a distinctly modern idiom. The pieces have been cited often in the development of American avant garde jazz, and they represent a postwar crossroads of ideas that incorporates atonal composition and bop-oriented approaches to instrumentation. Titles include "Thermopylae", "A Trumpet", "Modern Opus", and "City Of Glass". CD

New Eddie PalmieriEddie Palmieri Is Doin' It In The Park EP ... LP
Global Rhythm Group, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
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".

The main strength here comes from Bonnie Pointer – whose vocals have an instantly classic sound that really fits the grooves – but the record also has killer help from top to bottom, too – including production from Berry Gordy and Jeffrey Bowen, songs penned by Bowen, Smokey Robinson, Angelo Bond, Lamont Dozier, and Truman Thomas, and top-shelf help from California Motown studio giants. Titles include "When I'm Gone", "Free Me From My Freedom/Tie Me To A Tree", "Heaven Must Have Sent You", "Ah Shoot", "I Wanna Make It", and "My Everything". CD features great bonus tracks too – including "Free Me From My Freedom/Time Me To A Tree (12" disco version)", "Free Me From My Freedom/Time Me To A Tree (inst)", "Free Me From My Freedom/Time Me To A Tree (single)", "Heaven Must Have Sent You (12" disco)", and "Heaven Must Have Sent You (single)".

Some of the tightest funky 70s jamming ever – a lost gem from Ray & His Musical Court, a group that perfectly fuses JB/Horny Horns funk with beat-heavy Afro-Cuban groove! Ray and the group are one of the more obscure funky combos of the era, and it's a damn shame, because the group's tight-as-can-be amalgam of JB's style horn riffing and thumping Afro-Cuban percussion is some of the absolute best of its kind. This group seriously smokes any of the current funk bands on the road! On these sessions Ray wrote, produced, played "organ flute" and provided some vocals in a large group that includes three trumpets, bass clarinet, sax, two drummers, congas, electric bass, and a line of mostly Spanish vocalists. Amazing 70s super funk with a very proud Latin edge – and featuring tracks that include "Sunny", "Soul Freedom", "Cookie Crumbs", "De Eso Nada Monada", "Lo Sabia", "Venimos Acabando", "La Pena", and "La Senorita Lola".

Part of the credit goes to producer/arranger Michael Omartin – who also plays keyboards on the album, giving it one of its best characteristics – but the whole assortment of talents is pretty darn great too, and includes work by Victor Feldman, Ray Parker, and The Waters – who bring in some nice soulful vocals on a few cuts. Keeping their success with TV themes, the group do a great job with "Theme From Starsky & Hutch" on this one – taking the tune in a nice moogy sort of way – and other cuts include "Float On By", "Hedge Hog", "Skippin", "Language Of Love", "Holdin Out", and "Sail Away With Me".

The tracks are bold and strong voiced – often a bit longer than usual, which allows for even more focus on the album's solos from players who include Larry Bunker, Pete Candoli, Ronny Lang, Russ Freeman, and Dave Pell. There's a wonderful quality to the record – one in which all elements gell together perfectly, but in a way that still makes you aware of the presence of each player in the larger group – and titles include "Fawncy Meeting You Here", "For Hi Fi Bugs", "These Foolish Things", "Dream Of You", "Snowfall", and "Later Team".

A classic set from Horace Silver – one in which his quintet is expanded by some great guest work from trombonist JJ Johnson! Johnson's at the height of his 60s powers here – blowing with that lean, soulful style that always made any record sparkle – and although he's only on half of the tracks on the date, his presence is more than worth the heavy billing he gets on the cover! Other great members of the group include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, and rhythm from Bob Cranshaw on bass and Roger Humphries on drums – all coming together with that wonderful 60s Silver groove. The set's filled with sweetly grooving originals by Horace – a blueprint for the exotic style of soul jazz he helped to forge at the time – great writing all around, on titles that include "Mo Joe", "Nutville", "Bonita", "The African Queen", and "Pretty Eyes".
