New Yesterdays New QuintetSound Directions – The Funky Side Of Life ... CD
Stones Throw, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fresh serving of genius from Madlib – served up here in yet another manifestation of the Yesterday's New Quintet combo! Sound Directions have a groove that's quite similar to YNQ, but which focuses a bit more on the skittish percussion of Otis Jackson and "Sloppy" Joe Johnson – a live but spacey approach to rhythm, and one that often has the drums recorded in this gritty way that's nice and crunchy – and which is a perfect "bottom" to the tighter horns and electric keyboards of the set! Madlib's got help from guest players who vary from track to track – fleshing out his unique musical vision that includes new takes on Billy Brooks' "40 Days", Marcos Valle's "Wanda Vidal", Oliver Sain's "On The Hill", Lesiman's "Play Car", and David Axelrod's "A Divine Image" – as well as the original tunes "Theme For Ivory Black", Directions", and "Dice Game". Great stuff all around – with a groove that's as wild as Madlib's trip into the Blue Note vaults! CD

Marc CaryFour Directions ... CD
Motema, 2013. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Marc Cary's working here with his Focus Trio – a mighty cool group that has Sameer Gupta handling tablas as well as drums – an instrument that really helps bring a new sort of groove to the record! Cary's always had a way with richly visionary soundscapes – even in a more standard setting – but here, he slides out with a wide sort of sound that's expressed by a spare group of players – almost a mode that hearkens back to the best 70s moments of ECM, but with some straighter jazz passages as well. In addition to Gupta's drums and tablas, and Cary's acoustic piano, the set also features Burniss Earl Travis on acoustic and electric bass – plus some guest acoustic bass from Rashaan Carter on a few of the numbers that have Travis on electric. Titles include "Open Baby", "Todi Blues", "He Who Hops Around", "Tanktified", "Ready Or Not", and "Spectrum". CD

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the rarest soul records on Brunswick! This one was cut during the mid 70s – when the label was really having some rough times financially, but also was cutting some of its most groundbreaking soul work. The Directions are a tight harmony quintet – equipped, it appears, with their own band (The Directions Band) who give the group a nice rough soul sound. The vocal cuts on the record have sort of a Philly harmony style – with many uptempo numbers that are sort of a rougher version of work by Blue Magic or The Spinners. The instrumental tracks are smooth funk – with lots of tight keyboard work over heavy riffing and vamping, mostly in an uptempo vein. Titles include "Too Many Secrets", "Soup Line", "I Want To Be Your Special Man", "If You Ever", "We Need Love", and "I Love You So". CD

Janko NilovicFunky Tramway ... CD
Vadim (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99
A rare one from Janko Nilovic – his Funky Tramway – a cosmic jazz funk grail from the early 70s recorded in Belgium with an incredible group of local musicians – a stunner in which Nilovic is blending organically funky grooves with synths and other astral touches as incredibly as ever! If you dug Janko's brilliant Psych Impressions, Soul Impressions and Rythmes Contemporains compilations, there's much to love here – a similar blend of jazz, funk, and spacey prog touches – but the stylistic range here is perhaps even more impressive! There's lots of angelic wordless vocals flowing in and out, primarily from Patricia Maessen, but the group members contribute backing vocals, too, giving this more of a working band feel than some of Janko's sound library recordings of the time. Funky drums, bass, percussion, lots of spacey keys, Moog and trumpet steer the sound in lots of groovy directions. Titles include "Funky Tramway", "Flemish Suite", "Sitting Bull", "Gipsy Funk", "Atomium 82", "Disconnected Song", "Little Butcher's Street", "Fish Market" and more. CD

VariousBest Of Brunswick – For Groups – The Sound Of Chicago Soul ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99
A motherlode of great group soul – all of it pulled from the vaults of the legendary Brunswick Records! Brunswick really had an excellent way with group vocals – no surprise, given the strong connection that label had to the Chicago scene of the late 60s, a time and place where some mighty inventive, mighty wonderful work was going on! These tunes are way different than east coast material from the same time – more positive, upbeat, and righteous – often thanks to that loping groove provided by the Carl Davis production. The set also throws in a few tracks from later years and other scenes, and even a few instrumental groups too – and titles include "I'm Gonna Miss You" by The Artistics, "We Need Love" by The Directions, "You Got To Be The One" by The Chi-Lites, "I'm In Danger" by The Visitors, "Shaft" by Gregory James Edition, "Just A Melody" by Young Holt Unlimited, "I Love You Love You Completely" by Exit 9, "Someone Else's Arms" by Channel 3, and "Tired Of Being Alone" by The Lost Generation.

VariousBrownswood Bubblers Vol 8 – Compiled By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2012. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 17.98
Gilles Peterson does it again – and proves that he's still got one of the best ears around for choosing new music! Even after seven previous volumes, the Bubblers series is still plenty darn incredible – a great place for getting a taste of the best of the contemporary underground – those amazing artists that Gilles always features on his BBC show – always hand-picked, and chosen without any consideration for commercial directions – as you'll hear on the really revolutionary music in the package. There's a nicely laidback vibe this time around – a reminder of Peterson's tastes for more acoustic and jazz-based modes – and some of the tunes almost echo some of the rootsier music that Brownswood has recorded in recent years, too. Titles include "Volver" by Ana Tijoux, "She Was Out In The Water" by One Little Plane, "Crush" by Hello Skinny, "Linha De Frente" by Criolo, "Again" by Def Sound, "Manchild" by Haydn, and "Bout You" by Rainy Milo.

VariousWithout Limits Presented By The Modern Soul Collective ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Massive modern soul – hand-picked by the UK's Modern Soul Collective with a sweet selection of classics and some especially nice overlooked gems! The groove here is smooth, but never sleepy – upbeat, but not really disco – and instead that great blend of modes that really characterized the modern soul sound of the late 70s and early 80s! The package is designed as a follow-up to the previous No Boundaries collection, but we honestly dig it even more than that one – and the CD features a few more recent cuts mixed in with the older classics too. Titles include "You're Messing Up A Good Thing" by Heywood Cash, "Looks Like Rain" by Main Ingredient, "We Need Love" by Directions Band, "The Magic That You Do" by The Realistics, "Too Many People (Blacksmith dancehall mix)" by Pauline Henry, "Can You Feel My Love" by Khemistry, "I'll Be True" by Cookie Woodson, "Under Construction" by Al Supersonic & The Teenagers, "In The City" by Jesse Gomez & SWB, "Rough Out Here" by The Modulations, "Strip Me Naked" by Love Peace & Happiness, and "Make It Last" by DJ Jazzy Jeff with Ayah.

A later (and sort of a lesser) effort by this classic New Orleans funk band. The Nevilles guest on vocals, and the tracks definitely have that rolling New Orleans Nevilles soul sound – which is not bad, if you want it, but which really does differ from their classic raw funky stuff. Titles include "No More Okey Doke", "Funkify Your Life", "Give It What You Can", and "Be My Lady". CD

David T WalkerWith A Smile ... CD
Baked Potato/Warner (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... Around June 25, 2014 (delayed)
David T Walker brings it in with a smile – working with his Warm Heart group that features keyboards from Jerry Peters and drums from James Gadson! The sound's a bit smoother than Walker's work of the 70s, but still plenty darn nice – thanks to that sly, subtle rasp that David always has in his tone – a slightly earthy root to his music that makes most of the numbers sound plenty darn soulful, even amidst the smoothness. Guest players include Oscar Brasher on trumpet, Joe Clayton on percussion, and Barbara Morrison on just a bit of vocals – and titles include "Directions", "The Power Of Choice", "With A Smile", "Watts At Sunrise", and "Dreams In Flight".

New Manfred SchoofMunich Recordings 1966 ... CD
Sireena (Germany), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lost slice of German modern jazz from the 60s – material recorded for the Hans Wewerke sound library – done by a very hip group! The lineup features the groundbreaking Manfred Schoof Quintet – a group that featured Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums – years before his work with Can! The players are all coming from a jazz perspective, but also hint at so many directions German music would take in the next few years – especially Liebezeit, whose percussion really gives the album an edge. The sound is very arch-modern – inflected with lots of angles, unusual timings, and pulsing rhythms – not entirely free, but proud and strong, and coming across with a really bold finish. Titles include "Virtue", "Blues For T", "Second Roof", "Inri", "Ingredience No 2", and "Axiom". CD

New Weather ReportWeather Report (1971) ... CD
Columbia, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The groundbreaking first album from Weather Report – a massive session that took fusion to a whole new level for the 70s! Most of the players here had been associated with Miles Davis at some point in the year or two beforehand – and Miles' electric work is definitely a starting point for this group – but they quickly flow off in whole new directions, thanks to the mighty legacy of their own talents on previous records! The group features an intense lineup with Wayne Shorter on saxes, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Miroslav Vitous on bass, Alphonse Mouzon on drums, and Airto on percussion – all coming together in a groove that's often incredibly raw and free – with plenty of sharp electronic bits from Zawinul crackling under the acoustic elements in the music. The sound is still quite revolutionary all these years later – and titles include "Tears", "Eurydice", "Orange Lady", "Umbrellas", and "Milky Way". CD

New DirectionsHave You Felt This Way Before ... CD
Diaspora (UK), 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jazzy wonderfulness from Directions – an up-and-coming group from the Canadian scene, and a talented batch of folks who know how to perfectly blend the classic and the future! At one level, the album's got a style that's steeped in the 70s work of Herbie Hancock and Eddie Henderson – yet at another, it skips along with a soulful vocal approach that recalls some of our favorite work out of London in the past few years – but with a key difference in that the rhythms are more straight ahead, without as much "broken" bits underneath! The approach is great – really fluid and soulful, with a sound that should put these guys at the top of our list for a long time to come! Titles include "Busted Trees", "Lover Outta Town", "Have You Felt This Way Before", "Shameless", "Deep Talkin", "Terrified Star", and "Don't Hold Back". CD

New Alan HavenHaven For Sale/St Elmo's Fire ... CD
Columbia/RPM (UK), 1969/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two amazing groovers from organist Alan Haven – rare Brit jazz groovers, of the sort we never find in the US! First up is Haven For Sale – a sublime organ jazz set that's quite different than anything coming out of the US scene at the end of the 60s – a wonderful little record that draws strongly from Haven's soundtrack work with John Barry, and his placement in the UK mod scene of the late 60s! Haven's organ has this fantastically clean tone – kind of like Jimmy Smith in the Verve years, but a bit different too – and backed here with some wonderful charts by Keith Mansfield, of Brit sound library fame. Titles are covers, and very groovy ones at that – and cuts include "Norwegian Wood", "Deep Purple", "Our Day Will Come", "Goin Outta My Head", "What The World Needs Now", and "Exodus" – all swung in very groovy ways. Next up is St Elmo's Fire – a completely wonderful set that has UK organist Alan Haven taking off in amazing new directions! The rhythms here are really set loose – no longer tied to conventional organ jazz modes, and filled with lots of new freedoms – yet still keeping things pretty groovy and swinging throughout! Haven plays organ, piano, and instrumental effects too – and percussion is by Robin Jones on drums and timbales, and Tony Uter on additional Latin Percussion – no other instrumentation at all, which makes for a very rhythmic set. Many tunes are originals by Haven – real standout numbers that sparkle beautifully – and titles include "Flying Free", "St Elmo's Fire", "Charade", "Green Iguana", "Last Of The Wild", "Ace One Johnson", and "Soliloquy".

Gordy (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Temptations going in all directions – and all of them pretty darn groovy too! The set's still heavy on the solid, righteous sound of Norman Whitfield – who gives some of the best cuts that psychedelic soul imprint he really perfected with the group – a quality that has a lot more funk than other Motown acts were getting at the time – yet still lets the harmonies soar! A few other numbers showcase a more mature ballad style – different than the sweet soul of their roots, and definitely with an adult vibe we really love. Titles include heavy funk on "Funky Music Sho Nuff Turns Me On", and their great cover of Isaac Hayes "Do Your Thing" – some mellow mature covers like "Love Woke Me Up This Morning" and "First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" – plus the long version of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", and the tracks "Mother Nature" and "Run Charlie Run".

New James ZitroZitro ... CD
ESP, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the only albums we've ever seen from drummer James Zitro – a player who'd worked as a percussionist for one of the Sonny Simmons' albums on ESP Records, then was invited to cut his own date for the label! There's a really groundbreaking sound here – an approach to percussion that's almost melodic at times, and which prefaces some of the more famous experiments in those modes to come both from the Chicago AACM and the New York loft jazz scene of the 70s. Zitro's really got a way around the kit, leaping around with a style that reminds us of Andrew Cyrille at his best – yet in ways that often go in other directions. The rest of the group here is relatively obscure too – and players include Allan Praskin on alto, Bert Wilson on tenor, Warren Gale on trumpet, Michael Cohen on piano, and Bruce Cale on bass. Titles include "Freeken", "Happy Pretty", and "Sweet". CD

New TemptationsPsychedelic Shack/All Directions ... CD
Motown (UK), 1970/1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 killers by The Temptations! Psychedelic Shack is a Motown classic – with a deep heavy soul sound that mixed in loads of psychedelic elements in a rolling righteous groove that was perfect for the political tenor of the times. The formula worked extremely well for The Temps, and shifted them from being just a regular Motown vocal group into a super soul power that shaped soul music heavily in the next few years. Includes the classic "Psychedelic Shack", plus "Friendship Train", "Take A Stroll Thru Your Mind", "Hum Along And Dance", and "It's Summer". All Directions is pretty darn great, too – with less of a coherent sound, but plenty of great tracks – including "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", "Funky Music Sho Nuff Turns Me On", "Papa Was A Rollin Stone", and "Mother Nature".

Beats InternationalLet Them Eat Bingo ... CD
Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1990. Used ... $2.99
A big one for Norman Cook – caught here in his post-Housemartins, pre-Fatboy Slim years – working here in a playful blend of beats and samples that really point the way towards his later chart fame to come! The tracks here have a simple elegance that might have sounded dated a few years after release, but which is now finally beginning to win us over again – a really basic use of musical elements to construct a beat-heavy tune – one that's decidedly poppy, given all the hooks and vocals in the album, but which is also kind of refreshing to hear these days, considering all the wrong directions such efforts took in later years! The straightforward Cook remix approach is in full effect here – with one key idea hung on each tune – but it's also an approach that works well when not to much is expected of it, as you'll hear on tracks that include "Dance To The Drummer's Beat", "Dub Be Good To Me", "Burundi Blues", "Blame It On The Bassline", "Tribute To King Tubby", and "Babies Makin Babies".

Facil (Brazil), 2010. Used ... $14.99
One of the freshest albums we've heard in years from Gilberto Gil – a set that seems to shake off some of the misdirections of recent records, and really get back the sharper style of his roots – while still also heading off into a new mode as well! There's a definite forro undercurrent here, especially in the rhythms – and Gil uses the style to strip things down, get a bit rootsy, and really bring up these great earthy grooves alongside his vocals – moving things towards the spirit of his late 70s music, even though things here sound totally different! Production is never too slick, and titles include "Marmundo", "Assim Sim", "Fe Na Festa", "Marla Minha", "Aprendi Com O Rei", "La Vem Ela", and "Sao Jao Carioca". CD

VariousJende Ri Palenge – People Of Palenque (2CDs & DVD set) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 2012. New Copy 2CD & DVD ... $24.99
Amazing sounds from San Basilio De Palenque – a unique cultural crossroads on the coast of Colombia! The town was the first free slave community in the Americas – a distinction it's held for centuries – and continues to have strong ties to Africa, partly because of its roots, partly because of its longtime isolation from the rest of Colombia. As a result, the music is a very unique hybrid – very heavy on traditional modes, but evolved into very different directions too – and only marginally influenced by some of the more familiar Colombian styles. The sounds here are especially rootsy – given that they were recorded as part of a documentary project, which is also included in the package – and are easily some of the deepest ethnographic recordings that Soul Jazz has ever released! The music is heavy on percussion instruments and chanting – and the collection features music by Estrellas Del Caribe, Son Malagana, Santiago Ospino, Manuela Torres, Sikito, Curramberos De Gamero, and To Ane E Lo Memo Sexteto.

Mais Um Discos (UK), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $20.99
A stunning collection of contemporary work from Brazil – a double-length package that features a few cuts by artists we already know and love, plus lots more from genius young talents we're discovering here for the first time ever! The vibe is very much in the more left-leaning, experimental side of Brazil – styles that borrow a bit from Anglo indie rock at points, but often go off strongly in their own directions – following individual paths that remind us of 00s work on labels like Trama or Tratore! Lucas Santtana and Arnaldo Antunes both make appearances – and will give you an idea of the vibe here – and other tracks include "Moreno Morenado" by Dona Onete, "Alakoro" by Meta Meta, "Sob O Signo Do" by Zulumbi, "Ping Pong" by Lurdez Da Luz, "Veolicidade Do Eletro" by Gang Do Eletro, "Motim" by Baleia, "Na Garafa" by Trupe Cha De Boldo, "Fuga No 3 Da Rua Nestor, "So Um Beijo" by Madame Rrose Selavy, and "Canna Intucao" by Graveola. 43 tracks in all!

New Wayne ShorterMoto Grosso Feio ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A perfect illustration of the rich new directions Wayne Shorter was taking at the start of the 70s – an amazing flurry of sounds and styles that's light years ahead of where he began in the 60s! Shorter's one of those players who was already great at the start – an amazing tenorist, both on his own and with the groups of Art Blakey and Miles Davis – yet by the time of this record, he'd absorbed a huge amount of influences from Brazilian music, modal jazz, the spiritual underground, and even the free European scene – all of which come to play on the long, complex tunes on the set! The record has Shorter working with some other key contemporaries of this new moment in jazz – John McLaughlin on 12 string guitar, Chick Corea on marimba and percussion, Dave Holland and Miroslav Vitous on bass, and Ron Carter on cello – all players who have the same open, exploratory vibe as Wayne's own lines on tenor and soprano sax. Titles include an excellent cover of Milton Nascimento's "Vera Cruz", plus the tracks "Antiqua", "Iska", and "Montezuma". CD

Universal (France), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 incredible soundtracks from Serge Gainsbourg – both of them from his best period of work! Cannabis is a tremendously funky set of tunes – and some real standout soundtrack material from the legendary Serge Gainsbourg! Serge is working here with some great help from Jean-Claude Vannier – the guiding force behind Melody Nelson – and Vannier brings some great grooves to the record, really going for those sexy riffs and breaks that make us love Gainsbourg's music so much! There's a bit of vocals, but the main focus is on the instrumentation – which shifts nicely from track to track, taking the themes in some very nice directions – all of them definitely up to the sexy standard of Serge. The score to Ce Sacre Grand Pere is included here as bonus work – and features tracks written by both Serge and Michel Colombier. The overall feel is more orchestral and traditionally soundtrack-styled, but there are a few really sly funky tracks that offer up Serge at his sexy best! The set's got 21 tracks in all, and titles include "Cannabis", "Jane Dans La Nuit", "Danger", "Avant De Mourir", "Cannabis-bis", "Piege", "I Want To Feel Crazy", "Le Deuxieme Homme", "Champetre Et Pop 1", "Nous Les Jericho", and "L'Herbe Tendre".

'A great little Brazilian group from the 70s – one who continues the harmony styles of Sergio Mendes in the 60s, but takes the music into some groovy new directions! The sounds here are more samba than bossa – with guitar and percussion dancing nicely together in the rhythms as group members sing sweetly over the top – and both piano and keyboards adding in some nicely jazzy inflections to the groove, often with the more sophisticated phrasings you might expect in some of the EMI/Odeon work from earlier in the decade. Sivuca joins the group on both accordion and moog (!) – and the whole thing's got a sweetly-grooving style that's totally great! Titles include "Estatutos De Gafiera", "Loteca", "Amor Em Jacuma", " Iboru Iboya", "Beijo Baiano", "O Trem Atrazou", "Asa Branca", and "Fogo Pago". CD

Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing second set from Sixto Rodriguez – recorded in the legendary Landsdowne Studios in London, with a groove that's a great extension from his debut! All of Rodriguez's best elements are in place here – his folksy guitar, personal lyrical style, and surprisingly biting approach to a variety of topics – and the London setting provides him with an even more sophisticated backdrop than before, one that creates a rich palette of sounds that takes the music in some really wonderful directions! There's a bit of strings at times, but most instrumentation is by a small combo – which includes Chris Spedding on guitar and Tony Carr on percussion – so that Rodriguez's vocals and guitar are really right up front in the mix, recorded with a brilliant balance between sharpness and compassion. Titles include "Climb Up On My Music", "Silver Words", "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour", "I Think Of You", "To Whom It May Concern", "Halfway Up The Stairs", and "Cause". CD
