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

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

Rita MossTalk To Me Tiger! ... LP
Dot, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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".

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

Rita ReysRita Reys Sings Michel Legrand ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Around October 22, 2014
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".

New Maria RitaElo ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 2011. New Copy ... Temporarily 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". LP, Vinyl record album

New Rita HovinkLove Me Or Leave Me (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Decca/Think (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... 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".

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

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

New Joe CockerJoe Cocker! (1969) ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A landmark album from Joe Cocker – and a set that took blue-eyed soul in a whole new direction at the end of the 60s! The album's a surprising stunner all the way through – one that really gets past some of the overdone Cocker cliches that held on a bit too strongly in later years – served up here in relative simplicity, with core backing by Chris Stainton and The Grease Band, plus some key LA help from Leon Russell, and a bevy of backup singers that includes Merry Clayton, Bonnie Bramlett, Rita Coolidge, and Patrice Holloway. Russell co-produced the set, and his soulful touch definitely helps do a lot for Cocker's already-amazing vocals – adding in an undercurrent of funk that wasn't heard on Joe's first album. Titles include a classic remake of "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", plus "Delta Lady", "Something", "That's Your Business Now", "Hitchcock Railway", "Dear Landlord", "Darling Be Home Soon", and "Hello Little Friend".

The music is filled with love and joy – and has just the right sort of groove to really make the soloists take off – and titles include Cables's "Spookarella" and "Sweet Rita Suite Part 2: Her Soul", Harper's "Priestess" and Capra Black", McBee's "Close To You Alone", "Ladybugg" and "U Phoria", and an great opening take on Freddie Hubbard's "The Core".

One of the grooviest soundtracks ever written by Dominic Frontiere – for this strange little comedy starring Alan Arkin as a father who's trying to give his kids away! The tracks have a sweeping groovy approach – large orchestrations, sunny, bouncy, with some strings mixed in with tighter small combo grooving. A few of the tracks have more exotic themes, kind of echoing the uptown world of the film – but overall the score's a nice batch of late 60s groovers with some sweet mod elements! Titles include "They Ran Away", "Rita's Theme", "Two Boys On A Beach", "You Want These Kids", "Geneviva Take Care", and "Where's My Kids". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $7.99
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

Antonio Adolfo plays piano (and very nicely, we might add!) – and the rest of the group features great jazz players like Octavio Burnier and Jose Roberto Bertrami, all of whom give the session a tight beautiful feel. Nara's voice is incredible, and has a lot more emotion and feeling than on her earlier albums. Every track on the album was written by Chico Buarque – and titles include "Mambembe", "Olhos Nos Olhos", "Samba E Amor", "Dueto", "A Rita", "Trocando Em Miudos", and "Baioque". CD

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".

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.

This set has Pelt playing in a wonderfully mature mode – blocking out spaces of sound with effortless ease – really under-blowing his horn, yet getting a magnitude of sound in the process – with lots of dark edges, and careful shapes that bring a real edge to the session! There's a slight modern edge to the music, along with plenty of the soul promised in the title – and other players include JD Allen on tenor, Danny Grissett on piano, Dwayne Burno on bass, and Gerald Cleaver on drums – plus vocals from Joanna Pascale on one track.

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".

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.

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!

VariousTropicalia – Ou Panis Et Circencis ... LP
Philips/Soul Jazz (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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".

Osmar MilitoOsmar Milito E Deixa O Relogio Andar ... CD
Som Livre/Bomba (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Around August 15, 2014 (delayed)
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".

Os MutantesA E O Z ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1973. New Copy ... Early September, 2014 (delayed)
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

New Jimmy SmithUnfinished Business ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

A motherlode of under-discovered dancefloor tracks from the early 80s – mostly tracks recorded up in Montreal as part of that city's Philly-inspired club scene – and only ever issued as 12" singles on the Street Level and Musicworks labels! The 2CD set is overflowing with gems we'd never heard before – tracks that move between classic club, 80s groove, and straighter boogie styles – some of which are by familiar names, but most recorded by lesser-known artists who never cracked the clubs on this side of the border. 28 tracks in all – including "ET" by The Little Dabs, "All Of My Love" by Kim Covington, "Are You Lonely" by Hipnotic, "All Of My Love" by James Carmichael, "The Girl Is Bad" by For Love, "Sweet Little Rita" by Chestnut Brothers, "We've Got All Night" by Dee Dee T, "Expand Your Mind" by Johnny Davis, "How I Wish You Knew I Cared" by Leslie Ming, "So Shy" by Mac Mac, "Pillow Talk" by Jahmilla, "Love Disco Style" by Erotic Drum Band, "One Sided Love" by Ty Benskin, "Hungry For Your Love" by Suzann Riches, "Sex Appeal" by Sophie St Laurent, and "Give It Up Turn It Loose" by Tony & The Nite Runners.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Some of Kenny's best recordings – especially from the early days! The albums contained on this 2CD set feature Kenny in the company of some of the best late 50's players at Blue Note. Junior Cook and Tina Brooks are on tenor, Duke Jordan or Bobby Timmons play piano, Louis Smith plays trumpet on some tracks, Sam Jones is on bass, and Art Blakey is on drums throughout. The cuts have a very open-ended blowing session feel, and Kenny comes through surprisingly well, really picking up steam on a way you don't always hear in more restrained recordings. The 2-in-1 combo is a nice idea, too – and it gives you all 9 long tracks from these two rare albums, including "Rock Salt", "Chuckin", "Scotch Blues", and "Phinupi". CD

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

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".

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

Art FarmerBrass Shout/Aztec Suite ... CD
United Artists/Blue Note, 1959. Used ... $4.99
An amazing 2-in-1 CD – filled with sublime work from the mighty Art Farmer! First up is Brass Shout – a great little album by this wonderful trumpeter – and one that we passed up for years because we were afraid of the words "brass" and "shout" in the title! If you're a Farmer fan, though, don't worry about this being some sort of snoozy "bold n brassy" session – because it's a much more subtle record, and features some excellent lead solos by Farmer, set amidst a larger group arranged wonderfully by Benny Golson! Golson brings a great sense of balance to the album – mixing some larger horn passages with soulfully snapping rhythms, all at a level that still allows plenty of space for Farmer to solo sweetly on trumpet. Other players on the record include Lee Morgan on trumpet and Curtis Fuller on trombone, Percy Heath on bass, and either Philly Joe Jones or Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Minor Vamp", "Nica's Dream", "Stella By Starlight", "Moanin", "April In Paris", and "Five Spot After Dark". Aztec Suite is a rare Latin outing from trumpeter Art Farmer – one that has him working with the mighty Cuban arranger Chico O'Farrill! The grooves here are hardly "Aztec", as Chico brings a hip postwar vibe to the session – a blend of American jazz and Latin rhythms that's totally great, and played by an all-star array of players conducted by Al Cohn! Side one of the record features the extended "Aztec Suite" – an ambitious number that begins with modern moments that are somewhere in a space between Stan Kenton and Ralph Burns' experiments of this nature, but which always has Farmer's trumpet as the center focus. Side two features tracks that are a bit more conventional Latin jazz – still played by the bigger group, but with an even stronger sense of swing! Titles include "Aztec Suite", "Heat Wave", "Drume Negrita", "Alone Together", "Woody N You", and "Delirio". CD

Gene Harris & The Three SoundsLive At The It Club ... CD
Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1970. Used ... $11.99
This is the kind of reissue we like to see! Funky pianist Gene Harris had spent most of the 60s playing in a standard trio format with his group The Three Sounds – but by the time of this live set, the group was evolving into a monster jazz funk combo, and Harris was getting beautifully heavy handed in his approach to rhythm. This live set was recorded by Blue Note in 1970, but for some reason it was left unreleased until a few years ago – a decision that's really a mystery when you hear how funky some of the tracks are! Black Jazz bassist Henry Franklin is part of Harris' combo at the time, and the drummer is the nice tight Carl Burnett. The set includes some excellent versions of Monk Higgins tracks like "Funky Pullett" and "Sittin' Duck" – and Higgins also produced the whole thing for Blue Note. Very nice, and another great session we're glad was dug out of the vaults! CD

Jimmy HeathGap Sealer ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Very Good- ... $11.99
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

Some of the most enigmatic work we've ever heard from Karl Hector & The Malcouns – still every bit as funky as before, but with a deeper, more organic approach overall – one that includes loads of sweet acoustic instrumentation and mighty nice percussion! There's a very vintage feel to the record – a vibe that almost makes us feel like we've dug up tracks from the back of some studio in Lagos, just waiting to find the light of day – done in a style that's got plenty of East African styles in the mix, yet a core funk-based approach that still shows the group's Whitefield Brothers heritage. Titles include "Can't Stand The Pressure", "Ngunga Yeti Fofa", "Circles", "Transition", and "Semai Thaqil". LP, Vinyl record album

A very unusual concert from Billie Holiday – one that features narration by Gilbert Millstein, telling the story of Billie's life! The format is quite unusual – almost a live documentary, with the subject of the documentary there in person herself! Millstein narrates from the start, and Billie emerges with songs throughout – using Millstein's narration to bracket portions of her career, then delivering the tunes associated with that portion. Backing is by an all-hip group that includes Coleman Hawkins, Kenny Burrell, Chico Hamilton, Roy Eldridge, and Buck Clayton – and titles include "I Cried For You", "My Man", "Don't Explain", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Body & Soul", "I Love My Man", and "Yesterdays".

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.

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.

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

An incredible soundtrack from Morricone's best period ever! 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

One of the best electric sets from trombonist Shigeharu Mukai – a double-length album recorded at Pit Inn with his Morning Flight group – in a nicely extended take on the soulful sound of their studio records! The album features these long-spiralling keyboard solos from Mashiro Sayama – who's almost as much a draw as Mukai on trombone – and the leader finds a way to step out alongside the keyboard and guitar with the force of a horn section at time, then bank into the sort of soulful, lyrical solos he's always done so well. All tracks are long – and titles include "Jindow", "Phrygian Blue", "Dragon Fanatic", "Smoke In Purple", "Margarita", and "Dark Marine". CD

Trombonist Shigeharu Mukai got his start in more acoustic modes during the 70s, but really makes the transition well here – working with his Morning Flight group that's heavy on keyboards and guitar, but driven strongly by a well-focused sense of energy – a groove that's neither funk, nor commercial fusion – but nicely in between. Titles include "Hai Donan", "Macau's Lady", "Short Legs Step", and "Miracle Of Tungus". CD

Daptone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 14.99
An Afro Funk treasure from the 70s – a rare album recorded by Pax Nicholas, a singer and percussionist who was part of Fela's legendary Africa 70 band! The album's got a sound that definitely echoes that heritage, but with a groove that's pretty weird too – more stripped down than most of Fela's work, with a thin keyboard part that often pulsates under the horns, creating an offbeat, edgey vibe in the music! Nicholas' groove is almost like taking Fela, and putting it through an odd sort of filter – one that turns things slightly sideways, and brings a really fresh sound to more familiar Afro Funk modes – kind of with the same other-worldly feel we love in some Ethiopian work of the time. Tracks are all nice and long – and plenty jamming – and titles include "Na Teef Know De Road Of Teef", "Ataa Onukpa", "Na Six Feet", and "You". LP, Vinyl record album

If you take them at face value, you'd put them at the bottom of a long list of 70s disco artists that were here today, gone tomorrow. But if you listen to some of their classic TV/movie theme tracks – like "Barretta's Theme", "Three Days Of The Condor", and the always-great "Theme From SWAT" – you'll never forget them!

The third in a really great run from Rhythm Heritage – a group who continued to hold up a strong level of instrumental quality, despite the fact that they'd topped the charts, and were smack right in the middle of the LA studio scene at the time! 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".
