Sal SalvadorFrivolous Sal ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
Guitarist Sal Salvador made few albums as a leader during his day – but all of them are a treat, especially this one! The set's a mid 50s outing that features Sal's guitar in a quartet with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes – and grooving in a lightly swinging style that has some traces of east coast chamber jazz of the time, but which also displays Salvador's unique fascination with tone, sound, shape, and color! Salvador has a way of approaching the electric guitar that's like few other players in jazz – sometimes coming on full swing, other times laying back and letting the strings and their sounds shape the progression of tunes on the set. Titles include "Salaman", "I Love You", "Handful Of Stars", "Frivolous Sal", "Tangerine", "You Could Swing For That", and "All The Things You Are". CD

Sal SalvadorShades Of Sal Salvador ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful 50s work from guitarist Sal Salvador – a record that features some great work by Phil Woods on alto sax! Given that Sal often recorded in a small combo mode that usually highlighted his guitar in the lead, the presence of Woods is really a nice surprise here – especially since Phil's at that key early point in his career, when he was playing with a raspy edge that could really add a lot to a session! The players here shift a bit from track to track – and Woods is on 7 of the album's 11 tracks – joined on some of the best by Eddie Bert on trombone and Eddie Costa on vibes. Titles include "Joe & Me", "Carioca", "Delighted", "I've Got A Feelin", "I Hadn't Anyone Til You", and "Took The Spook". CD

Sal SalvadorTribute To The Greats ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... $13.99
Sal Salvador pays tributes to the jazz greats of his time – Charlie Parker, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, and others – but also serves things up at a level that's very much his own bag too! The album's got a spare, stripped-down groove that really suits Salvador's guitar well – giving Sal plenty of room to craft these round, warm lines that are full of color and tonal depth – often with a sense of rhythm that makes things groove, even when moving slowly. The group has just the right sort of balance to fit the mood that Sal's going for – with Eddie Costa on piano and vibes, Frank Dallas on bass, and Ronnie Free on drums. Titles include "Manteca", "Ruby My Dear", "Yardbird Suite", "Cool Eyes", "Taps Miller", and "Solos For Guitar". CD

New Sallie BlairSqueeze Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1957. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sallie Blair never cut many records back in the day – but she's a hell of a great singer, and one with a really memorable approach! As you might guess from the image on the cover, Sallie's got a fair bit of personality – a way of putting over a tune that's really compelling, and a lot more charming than some of her more cool-voiced contemporaries – especially on the Bethlehem label. Her vocals are great, but her sense of individuality is even better – and there's a quality to the record that really makes it stand out from the pack. Richard Wess handles the arrangements – some with a small combo of Bethlehem players – Sal Salvador on guitar, Sanford Gold on piano, and Milt Hinton on bas – some with larger groups that expand the sound without losing the intimacy of the vocals. Titles include "Similau", "Better Luck Next Time", "Squeeze Me", "Come By Sunday", and "How Long Has This Been Going On". CD

New Frank SocolowSounds By Socolow ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real lost gem on Bethlehem Records – and one of the few albums to feature this tremendous saxophonist in the lead! Frank Socolow was one of the great unsung reed players of the 50s – and although he lay hidden in some of the larger combos of the early part of the decade, he thankfully got to cut this excellent album as a leader for Bethlehem in the middle part of the decade! The record features a nicely stripped-down combo – with Eddie Bert on trombone, Sal Salvador on guitar, and Eddie Costa on piano – and the overall feel is icy and cool, with distinct touches of Lee Konitz, and a tightly arranged sound which then lets Frank break out strongly against on his solos. Titles include "Miss Finegold", "Little Joe", "Farfel", "Swing Low Sweet Socolow", and "I Love You". One we almost never see on vinyl, either! CD

CybotronMotor City Machine Music – An Explanation Of Cybotron ... CD
BGP (UK), Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
A key moment in electronic music in the US – the early Detroit experiments of Cybotron! The group were the duo of Juan Atkins and Rick Davis – working in early 80s Detroit, in a sound that would later transform into the more familiar techno groove – but which here is a strange blend of styles that includes bits of Kraftwerk, hip hop, electro, and post-disco club! The overall vibe is pretty spacey – with sci-fi themes that run through most of the tracks, echoed by odd production techniques that repeat the best elements over and over, and maintain a dark, spare style that was clearly the blueprint for midwest house grooves in years to come. And if you've ever been wowed by the darker sounds of Chicago house in the mid 80s, you'll really be stunned by the level of work from these guys – as Cybotron seem to preface just about all the post-industrial themes that would show up later on Trax – but come at things from a very different perspective. And added into the whole uniqueness of the work is the fact that these recordings originally were issued by Fantasy Records – so had a west coast life of their own, on a label that hardly had any other relation to Detroit at the time! The set features a total of 13 tracks that includes a few remixes – and titles include "Clear", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit Style)", "Alleys Of Your Mind", "R-(", "Let's Go", "Techno City", "Industrial Lies", "El Salvador", "Cosmic Raindance", "Cosmic Cars (house mix)", and "R-9 (inst)".

Wilson Das NevesSamba-Tropi (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $32.99
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the same territory as Jorge Ben at the end of the 60s, with wickedly riffing guitar and some nicely heavy drums. The lineup is an all-star one – Dom Salvador on piano, Ze Roberto on organ, and trombone from Ed Maciel – and the arrangements are handled by Erlon Chaves, with the same funky approach as his own great music! There's loads of great originals on the record – including "Essa Moca Ta Diferente", "Sarro", "Repouso", and "Bebete Vao Bora" – plus versions of cuts like "Venus", "Evil Ways", and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", all done as groovy instrumentals.

This is a coffee for careful sipping – either kicking back with friends at the end of the day, or chilling out by yourself – a deep brew for deep moments.

Egberto GismontiEgberto Gismonti (1969) – Serie Estreia ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $19.99
Incredible early work from Egberto Gismonti – very different than his avant compositions of recent years, or his spare instrumental work for ECM! This set's got Gismonti stepping off the bossa years with acoustic guitar in the lead, but working with these soaring larger arrangements that are completely sublime – serious, but very groovy too – and moving at a level that shares the same ambitious space with similar work by artists like Marcos Valle or Jose Mauro! The main focus is instrumental, but there are some wordless vocals that drift through the mix at times – and the whole thing's got a heavenly sound that's made the record well-deserving of its legendary status over the years. Titles include "O Sonho", "O Gato", "Salvador", "Computador", and "Um Dia". CD

Meridian BrothersSalvadora Robot ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $10.99 11.98
Amazing sounds from The Meridian Brothers – not a family act at all, but really just a one man operation – yet with a sound that's more than large enough to bring in a whole host of South and Central American influences! Eblis Alvarez uses elements of cumbia, merengue, and other Latin styles – all to create these weirdly offbeat rhythms which are then peppered with acoustic and electric instruments – never in ways that are gimmicky, and always with this organic, spontaneous quality that makes you feel like you've unearthed a crate of obscure Colombian singles in the back corner of an urban flea market! Only a few tracks have a relatively contemporary vibe, but even those echo with older sounds and styles – and titles include "Salvadora Robot", "Somos Los Residentes", "Jefe Indio Vengara", "Doctor Trompeta", and "Un Principe Miserable Y Malvado".

Tamba 4Samba Blim ... CD
CTI/A&M (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album by the Tamba 4 – one of 2 albums the Brazilian bossa combo did in the US for A&M Records, during the brief time when they were expanded to a quartet from the original Tamba Trio lineup! The set is completely sublime – a wonderful mix of the group's trademark harmony vocals and crackling bossa rhythms, with the warmly flowing CTI production style of the time – not funky like the CTI sound of the 70s, but a bit more sophisticated than the style Creed Taylor had been using earlier at Verve. Tracks are short, breezy, and often very lively – bossa grooving warmed in the California sun – and titles include "Samba Blim", "Watch What Happens", "Pregao", "San Salvador", "Know It All", and "Palladium".

Mr Bongo (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/2013. New Copy ... $15.99
Brazilian Beats have come a long way in just seven volumes – from an initial series approach that focused on older bossa and samba grooves, to this crackling set that's filled with great contemporary moments too! The package may well be the most exciting in the collection so far – as it effortlessly shifts between current grooves from the underground and older gems from the 60s and 70s – showing a never-ending sense of creative combination in Brazilian music – the kind of fresh, groundbreaking sounds that have always had our ears turned towards the music of Rio, Sao Paolo, Recife, and Salvador! The set pulls you in right away with some really wonderful sounds – then opens your mind to a great mix of tracks that includes "Boa Noite" by Karol Conka, "Melo Do Vatapa" by Bemba Trio, "Esquindindin" by Som Sete, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Junip, "Deixa Eu Dizer" by Claudia, "Luiza Manequim" by Abilio Manoel, "Selvagem" by Wan Trio, "Corridos E Toques De Capoeira" by Mestre Bimba, "Plateau (part 1)" by Jackson Conti, "Pra Fazer Um Samba" by Cizinha, "Autorizando" by Jorge Autuori, and "Caminho Livre" by Coaty De Oliveira.

Azar LawrenceSummer Solstice ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
A beautiful album of spiritual soul and Brazilian influenced jazz from Azar Lawrence – and a pretty rare one we're thrilled to have! Lawrence is a stellar sax player with a sound that's a bit like Gary Bartz, which means that he fits in perfectly with the Fantasy-era Prestige Records sound – but the sounds on this set are uncommonly rich and globally influenced. The set's predominantly acoustic, with lots of modal grooves in kind of a Strata East vein – and angular post-Coltrane playing that's very similar to Bartz's work on the Libra album from his early days. Players include Raul De Souza on trombone, Ron Carter on bass, Billy Hart on drums, Dom Salvador, who is really allowed to shine on piano on a few tracks, and drummer & percussionist Guilherme Franco, who brings a world of wonderful percussion on a couple of numbers. Titles include "Highway", "From The Point of Love", "Novo Ano", and "From The Point Of Light". CD

Dom Um RomaoDom Um Romao/Spirit Of The Times ... CD
Muse/Soul Brother (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of amazing records from percussionist Dom Um Romao – back to back in a single set! The self-titled Dom Um Romao is an unbelievably fantastic album, and perhaps the greatest one that Dom Um Romao ever cut! Dom recorded this set in America with a blend of Brazilian and New York musicians – creating an incredible sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – a rich harmony of Brazilian roots and more creative 70s electric instrumentation – filled with complicated shades, tones, and colors! We'd place this record next to the best electric work by David Axelrod, the dopest funk on CTI, and a rare few other jazz funk albums from the 70s – and the whole thing's completely sublime all the way through! Players include Joao Donato on piano, Dom Salvador on Fender Rhodes, Lloyd McNeil on flute, Mauricio Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Sivuca on organ and guitar, and Joe Beck on electric guitar – and titles include the spare spacey groover "Dom's Tune", the lively dancer "Cinnamon Flower", the jazzy "Family Talk", a great version of "Ponteio", and a take on Sivuca's "Adeus Maria Fulo". Spirit Of The Times is an incredible set of Brazilian jazz – one of the few albums that percussionist Dom Um Romao recorded as a leader, and sublime all the way through! The record's got a wonderful blend of funky fusion and Brazilian percussion – and features a group from two continents that includes Sivuca on organ, Dom Salvador on electric piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on alto sax, Lloyd McNeill on flute, and Mauricio Smith on tenor, soprano, and flute. Includes the percussion jammer "Shake (Ginga Gingou)", the modal groover "Wait on the Corner", and the lively scatting tune "The Angels" – but the whole album's great, and other tracks include "The Salvation Army", "Kitchen", and "Lamento Negro".

The album features work composed by Egberto Gismonti, played by Horn, Gismonti, Dom Salvador, and Dom Um Romao with a breezy Brazilian jazz finish! The sound's a great extension of the genius that Gismonti had at the time, and takes his music into a slightly more American mode – with titles that include "Danca Das Cabecas", "Carmo", "Altura Do Sol", "Quarup", "Tango", and the great "Salvador".

A lost bit of dreamy bossa from the 60s – recorded in Brazil at the end of the decade, but unavailable to most of the world for years! The session's got a gently snapping, always jazzy approach that easily matches the best takes on the bossa coming out from Rio and LA at the time – and the album's done in a style that really makes best use of the warmly soulful piano lines of Dom Salvador, while also hitting some harder rhythms that bristle with plenty of bossa jazz energy, thanks to the presence of drummer Wilson Das Neves! Vocals are often in a mode that showcases singer Valeria, but with support from harmonies on the chorus – and the record's got a sunny sort of groove that almost reminds us of classics by Mario Castro Neves & Samba SA! Titles include "Sambou Sambou", "Ponteio", "Viola Enluarada", "Vesti Azul", "Lady Madonna", "Deixa", "Alegria Alegria", and "Retrato Em Branco E Preto". CD

Don't be put off by the late date of the session, because this is an excellent album from McCoy Tyner – and one with a very spiritual groove that's clearly inherited from Coltrane! The album's based around longer compositions arranged by Tyner, and orchestrated by the great William S Fischer – with lead solos by Hubert Laws on flutes and McCoy on piano, over soaring searching backings that push onward with the same kind of soulful sound as some of Tyner's earlier Blue Note albums. Fischer, as always, manages to balance complexity with straight-ahead grooving – and the clean sound of the album is a surprise throughout!

A really excellent little compilation – one filled with great sounds from the Brazilian underground, and a really rich blend of music that goes way beyond the straighter booty-shaking beats you'll find on other collections of this nature! The music here is often much deeper than some of the straight bass and hip hop coming out of the Brazilian charts – and although lots of these cuts do draw on American production influences, the overall presentation is much rootsier – with echoes of the samba soul generation and other great stretches of Brazilian grooves – even when things are somewhat electric overall. The whole thing's a very much-needed push deeper into the contemporary underground in Rio and Sao Paulo – and titles include "Obrigahh" by Doncesao, "Talarico" by Ogi & Stereodubs, "Cada Um Cada Um" by Espiao, "Balboa Da Silva" by Bixiga 70, "Mulato" by Iconili, "Sou De Salvador" by Rodrigo Campos, "Etiopia" by Sambanzo, and "Cala Boca Menino" by Afroelectrico. 2CDs, and 32 cuts in all!

The standout set from Amanda Lear – a model turned singer, and one of the more striking crossover divas of the disco era! Lear's got previous ties to Salvador Dali and David Bowie, but she keeps things relatively straight ahead on this debut album – using accented vocals that recall an earlier Hildegard Knef singing in English, set to streaming Euro disco grooves that fit very well with the approach. Lear's not nearly the most soulful singer you'll ever hear, but her approach is certainly striking – especially on the album's best tracks. Titles include the classic "I Am A Photograph", plus "Alphabet", "Blood & Honey", "Tomorrow", "Pretty Boys", "Alligator", and "La Bagarre". CD features the bonus tracks "Queen Of Chinatown", "She's Got The Devil In Her Eyes", "Lethal Leading Lady", and "Blood & Honey (12" version)". CD
