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 – Serie Estreia ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
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 Her".

Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1970/1972/1974. New Copy 3 CDs ... $44.99
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+ ... $14.99
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

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

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".

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

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

Superb, indeed – a really wonderful record from a singer who should have been huge – a vocalist with poise, presence, and power enough to challenge some of her bigger contemporaries – and one who really sparkles here in some sophisticated settings from Marty Paich! Paich really brings his a-game to the set – and is clearly trying to push Rita into territory that rivals Nancy Wilson's work at Capitol – soulful, but quite mature too, really moving beyond boundaries into a possibly much wider mainstream. Titles include "He & I Alone", "Who Will Be With You", "Wait Until Dark", "Wake Up Heaven", "This Lonely Town", "Visit Me", and "Love Is A Simple Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

New Maria RitaSamba Meu ... CD
Warner, 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful little record by Maria Rita – and a wonderful departure from her previous sets! This time around, as you might guess from the title, Maria's serving up a host of samba tunes – done in a mostly-acoustic mode that crackles with live percussion, acoustic guitar, and other Brazilian instrumentation – a beautifully unfettered setting that almost has Rita sounding even better than before – a lot more human and a lot more personal, shaking off the personal heritage that served well to introduce her to the world, but which also somehow held her back. It's clear from the notes that Maria's a relative newcomer to the samba, but she takes to the style perfectly here – and brings in a sense of warmth and jazz that in turn really help liven up the genre. The balance here is beautiful, and the album's way more than we could have expected – a true treasure from an artist who's finally beginning to make us sit up and take notice. Titles include "Corpitcho", "Novo Amor", "Trajetoria", "O Que E O Amor", "Samba Meu", "O Homem Falou", "Ta Perdoado", "Num Corpo So","Maltratar Nao E Direito", and "Maria Do Socorro". CD

New Maria RitaSegundo ... CD
Warner, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
The amazing second album from Brazilian singer Maria Rita – and a real departure from the first! This time around, Maria's working live in the studio – in a warmly spontaneous setting that's a nice departure from the more confined modes of her debut – and which is given some especially nice touches on production by Lenine! There's a spirit here that goes far beyond Rita's introduction to the world as the daughter of Elis Regina – and which has the singer really moving into her own territory, and working with some of the more globally-directed soul of some of the other young singers of the current Brazilian scene. Most tracks feature strong acoustic piano from Tiago Costa – who also handled most of the arrangements on the album, and brings in a warm mix of jazz that occasionally grooves with a few funky touches as well. We're honestly surprised at how much we love this one – and in one fell swoop, Rita's managed to challenge so many of the electronically-augmented Brazilian singers of late – with a mostly-acoustic outing that's got even more raw power! Titles include "Mal Intento", "Recado", "Caminho Das Aguas", "Casa Pre-Fabricada", "Minha Alma", "Sobre Todas As Coisas", and "Sem Aviso". CD

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

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

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

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

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

At times, there's a slight echo of new wave modes, but other points have a fuller approach to MPB – and a few other tunes even take on more of an older tropical feel, but with some nice contemporary arrangements – really balancing out the album's tunes – penned by Luiz Melodia, Rita Lee, Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, and Chico Buarque. Arrangements are by Liminha – and titles include "Baba Alapala", "Pecado Original", and "Trocando Em Miudos". CD

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.

A great full-length set from Dandy Teru – a producer who's been making a fair bit of waves in the underground in recent years – finally stepping into the limelight here himself! Teru's got a great ear for a crispy beat and cosmic keyboard line – often fusing the two together in a trans-spatial way that creates a nice undercurrent of older soul and funk, yet which still retains a really contemporary vibe! This approach works really well for the range of talents helping Dandy out on the set – including Ty, Moka Only, Rita J, Quiet Dawn, Count Bass D, Tchad Unpoe, and Sarah Gessler – all different voices that help shape the sound of the record, and really unleash the variety in Teru's approach.

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!

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.

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".

New Os MutantesE Seus Cometas No Pais Do Baurets (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by Os Mutantes – a record that's got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great! 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 first set in All Natural's ambitious series of albums built around the natural elements (fire, water, earth and wind) – and this is indeed some of most fiery work by the Chicago true school hip hop mainstays – and probably their tightest full length to date! They truly bring the heat here – incendiary, harder charging boom bap all the way – with production by Cap D, scratches by Tone B Nimble – plus additional production from Kev Brown, Battletek, Proh Mic and others. Titles include "The All", "Move, Move", "Backslap", "Somethin Of Nothin", "Good Life" feat Rita J, "Poppers Pop, Breakers Break", "Nothing To Lose", "You Know My Name", "Signature Flow" feat Grav & Noyd and more.

A&M, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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

Dore/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

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

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

The vital debut of Guy Clark – and easily one of the greatest Texa-bred country records of the mid 70s! Guy was already developing a strong pedigree as a songwriter by this point, but much like his peer Billy Joe Shaver, the personal feel of the songs come across in a deeper way, when done by the man himself. He's backed by an impeccable group of musicians, too, including Bob Wills' Texas Playboys fiddler Johnny Gimble, Willie Nelson's go-to harmonica player Mickey Raphael, and harmony vocals by Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris and Steve Earle. Includes "Rita Ballou", "LA Freeway", "She Ain't Goin' Nowhere", "A Nickel For The Fiddler", "That Old Time Feeling", "Texas-1947", "Desperados Waiting For The Train", "Like A Coat From The Cold", "Instant Foffee Blues" and "Let Him Roll".

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".

The tracks are long, and two numbers have a really nice Latiny flair – with Art spinning out some aggressive solos on top of fast-running grooves, in a way you'd be surprised to hear on one of his albums from the time! Titles include "Rita San", "My Laurie", "Ballad of The Sad Young Men", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

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.

Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60s, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats. 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)". This great limited edition CD version has a 4 bonus tracks made up of the full version of the end title song, medleys of shorter cues from the film, instrumental bits and more.

Captcha, 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from the legendary Phil Cohran – a previously-unissued performance from 1993, and one that's every bit as wonderful as his rare albums of the late 60s! The set was recorded at the planetarium in Chicago – and for the date, Cohran comes up with a really cosmic sound – a small combo that's heavy on string sounds from guitar, bass, and harp – layered together beautifully to create these Alice Coltrane-like undercurrents – over which the group solos with flute, trumpet, and trombone! There's less players here than on some of Cohran's older Artistic Heritage Ensemble sets, but the sound is exactly like those records – right down to some key moments in which Phil plays his amazing Frankiphone – an electrified kalimba with a tremendous tone. Titles include "White Nile", "Cohran Blues", "The Dogon", "Sahara", "Kalahari", and "Kilimanjaro". 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.

Honest Jons (UK), 2012. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
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".

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

A completely unique little session – and a record that's every bit as musically striking as you might guess from its title and cover! The date's a rare Latin-tinged one for trumpeter Kenny Dorham – a record that takes his usually smooth sound and sets it up against octet backings with horns from JJ Johnson on trombone, Cecil Payned on baritone sax, and Hank Mobley on tenor – plus piano from Horace Silver, bass from Oscar Pettiford, and drums from Art Blakey – plus added congas from Patato Valdes! The expanded group plays with a great sense of power – really pushing Kenny's sound tremendously – and although the album also features a few tracks by a smaller group with less percussion, these also have a bit of a Latin/exotic tinge too. Titles include "Basheer's Dream", "Lotus Flower", "KD's Motion", "Venita's Dance", "Minor's Holiday", "La Villa", and "Afrodisia".

The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".

Earth, Wind & Fire's first album – recorded at a time when the group recently had ties to the Chicago soul and jazz scenes, and a range of experience that ran the gamut from work with Sun Ra, the Artistic Heritage Ensemble, The Pharoahs, Ramsey Lewis, and countless other influential groups. Headed up by Maurice White on drums and percussion, the group forged an amazing blend of all these influences, creating a future soul sound that pushed black music to the next level – taking a wealth of previously underground modes of expression, and fusing them into a soaring sound that would soon put them at the top of the charts. This album's a lot looser and freer than their Columbia albums – with plenty of raw funk and some nice off-beat jazz soling. Includes the classic break track "C'Mon Children", plus "Fan The Fire", "Bad Tune", and "Moment Of Truth". LP, Vinyl record album

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

The album was arranged by Joe Renzetti and produced by Jerry Ross – and it's got a nicely balanced approach that's poppy, but never too much so – that great part of the post-folk generation that's come to be known as Sunshine Pop, and which is rarely presented with such perfection as on a set like this! Roger and Wendy Penney were the lead vocalists – and instrumentation includes electric autoharp and keyboards from Roger, plus bass from Wendy.

United Artists/Blue Note, 1959. Used ... $9.99
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

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

FlamingosSound Of The Flamingos ... LP
End, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A totally hard to find harmony vocal set on the End label, with nothing but pure heavenly east coast harmonies. Unlike other groups, who added a lot of filler to their LPs, the Flamingos always sang top notch material, so this set plays more like an album than the collection-of-singles type sets that were common around this time. A veritable motherlode of seminal cuts, with 10 nice numbers in all including "Goodnight Sweetheart", "I Only Have Eyes For You", "I'm In The Mood For Love", "As Time Goes By", 'Where Or When", "In The Still Of The Night", "When I Fall In Love", "You'll Never Walk Alone", "Everybody's Got A Home (But Me)" and "Love Walked In".

Stan GetzStan Getz At Storyville Volumes 1 & 2 ... CD
Roulette/Jazz Heritage, 1951. Used ... $4.99
A great CD that combines volumes 1 and 2 of Stan's early live recordings at Storyville – excellent small group sessions done with a group that includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Al Haig on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Tiny Kahn on drums. The mix of guitar and tenor is great together – a sound that became one of Stan's calling cards in the early 50s – and even the live setting can't stifle the strength of his unique tone. The CD features a total of 13 cuts in all – and titles include "Budo", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Yesterdays", "Thou Swell", "Mosquito Knees", and "Parker 51". CD

Richard HaversStones In The Park – The Summer Of 69 & The Making Of The Greatest Rock N Roll Band In The World (hardcover) ... Book
Haynes (UK), 2009. New Copy ... $5.99
Nice hardcover look at The Rolling Stones circa '69 – a huge year of cultural change in general, and it was just as massive to the Stones! Things were getting deeper and heavier for the Stones, artistically and personally – with Brian Jones departing and passing away – and Mick Taylor joining the band. It was also right around this time they were solidifying their legend well beyond mere rock and roll stars. The book is centered around The Stones' massive concert in Hyde Park that summer, which to that point was one of the biggest ever held in Britain – and the book is filled with some of the best photos we've ever seen of that event – and so many more of that band – in action and behind the scenes.

Now Again, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
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".

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

Shake KeaneBig Fat Horn Of Shake Keane (aka Shake Keane With The Keating Sound) ... LP
London, 1965. Very Good ... $4.99
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.

Ennio MorriconeL'Assoluto Naturale (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... $22.99
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

Warm, soulful fusion with lots of great touches – that perfect blend of elements that you'd find in only a rare few Japanese fusion records from the time! 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

Pax Nicholas & The Netty FamilyNa Teef Know De Road Of Teef ... LP
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

Lemon Kid is just raw enough, tuneful as hell, and packed with really strong songs. He lives and breathes great garage, pop and psych songcraft, and it's pretty amazing that he can churn out records as great as this one, solo and with Cheap Time, as fastly and effectively as he does. Includes "Endless Repetition", "String Around The Waistband", "Night For Day", "Heritage Towers", "German Orange", "Losing Charm", "Pictures On A Screen", "Lemon Kind" and "Now And Forever".

Jim PepperPepper's Pow Wow ... LP
Embryo, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A strangely beautiful little record – the standout career effort from tenorist Jim Pepper – a Native American player who draws heavily here on his heritage! Although Pepper plays sax on most numbers, he also sings a fair bit too – in kind of a raspy style that alternates from slightly soulful to somewhat chanting – all in a uniquely haunting way that's unlike anything else we can think of! There's a definite jazz core to the record – guitar from Larry Coryell, piano from Tom Grant, and drums from Billy Cobham and Spider Rice – but the sound is often far from standard, given the vocals and Native American influences. Titles include the sublime "Witchitai-To" – Pepper's lasting legacy in music – plus "Newlyweds Song", "Nommie Nommie", "Senecas", "Yon A Ho", "Slow War Dance", and "Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

Quite possibly THE greatest Sonny Rollins album of the early years – or at least the one that has received the most accolades over the years! The record is a brilliant batch of quartet tracks that reinvents bop through Sonny's complicated, yet seemingly automatic solos – an excellent showcase for his razor-sharp talents for improvisation and invention, played with effortless ease, yet still one of the great bar-setting performances of 50s jazz. The group features Tommy Flanagan, Max Roach, and Doug Watkins – and tunes include an original reading of the perennial Rollins' standard "St. Thomas", plus a great version of "Moritat (Mack The Knife)", and the cuts "Strode Rode" and "Blue 7".

And although Surman and Phillips might later record in more atmospheric modes, they've definitely got a lot of energy here – really letting loose on titles that include "Incantation", "Dousing Rod", "Foyer Hall", "Green Walnut", "Dee Tune", "Veritably", "Oh Dear", and "Caractacus".
