Fela & Africa 70Zombie (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Barclay/Wrasse, 1976/1977. Used ... $9.99
One of Fela's greatest albums – augmented here by 2 bonus tracks! "Zombie" shows Fela at the height of his powers – grooving away in incredibly fast, incredibly tight Afro Funk lines, weaving guitar, sax, and keyboards together with a speed that still leaves us breathless. No wonder the track had a history of causing riots when it was played! "Mr Follow Follow" is a bit mellower, but even stronger on the message tip, and graced with a sublime snakey sax solo. The unreleased tracks include "Observation Is No Crime", a slow groover from 1978 with a full-on horn feel, and "Mistake", recorded at the Berlin Jazz Festival the same year, and an excellent number that features that spooky Sun Ra-like piano that Fela could cook up sometimes!

VariousShake Sauvage – French Soundtracks 1968-1973 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $18.99
Very groovy stuff! In the best tradition of Crippled Dick's Italian soundtrack compilations – Beat At Cinnecita – the label has now dug through the rich rich tradition of French soundtrack grooves, and has come up with a spectacular set of cuts that run from sitar psychedelic to rare jazzy grooves! The track list is stunning – and most of these cuts haven't ever been properly reissued before. Plus, since many French soundtracks were only issued in 7" single or e.p. formats, you'll probably never even track down a full LP for this material – making it as rare as most of our funky 45s! The groove is as perfect as you'd expect, and it's about time that somebody finally started digging into the wealth of great music from France. Titles include "Juke Boxes Chez Saidani" by Philippe Sarde, "Full Speed" by Claude Bolling, "Ok Chicago" by Resonance, "Kidnapping" by Karl Heinz Schafer, "Le Crocodile Porte Cle" by Bernard Gerad, "Grand Theme Malko" by Michel Magne, "Sexopolis" by Jean-Pierre Mirouze, "Sweet Bacon" by Julien Covey, "Petrol Pop" by Michel Magne & Jean Yanne, "Bowery Mood" by Vladimir Cosma, "African King" by Andre Arpino, and "Neus Dans L'Eau" by Georges Garvarentz. 18 cuts in all!

VariousTake Me Aosis – A Nite Out In London Compiled By Nik Weston ... CD
Aosis (Japan), 2003. Used ... $4.99
A great collection of modern tracks playing big on the London scene – put together by Nik Weston, one of the city's current tastemakers! The range of grooves here is really wonderful – with a lot more jazz and soul influences than you'd expect, especially hearing some of the broken beat and electronic work coming out of the city lately. There's actually also a lot of work by Japanese artists as well – showing how the bridge between Tokyo and London is stronger than ever, allowing some truly great underground acts to reach expression on global proportions! Titles include "Speed Of Love" by Seikou Nagaoka, "Salty Or Sweet" by Jazoulster, "Descarga Pa'ti" by Ken Morimura, "Shi Wa Zu" by Rie Akagi, "After The Dance" by Yukhoh Kusunoki, "Leiloca" by Pamela Driggs, "Saturday (inst)" by Paris Match, "New Steps" by Res, and "You Don't Know What Love Is" by Osamu Koike.

New Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins Plus 4 (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Prestige, 1956. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A crackling bit of hardbop from Sonny Rollins – and a session that has Sonny playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown group that included Bud Powell's brother Richie on piano! Sonny had already made a strong name for himself on albums issued under the Roach/Brown tag at the time, and here the group returns the favor by allowing Sonny to lead, and by giving him a good deal of time in the spotlight! Rollins' solo ability is risen to a razor-sharp level for the set – really getting fire, and managing to invent at a speed and sharpness that's simply amazing. Titles include Sonny's classic reading of "Pent-up House", plus "Valse Hot", "Kiss & Run", and "Count Your Blessings". CD
Also available Sonny Rollins Plus 4 ... LP 11.99

New David BowieLow (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Ryko, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". Features great bonus tracks – "Some Are", "Sound & Vision (rmx)", and "All Saints". CD

Clarke Boland Big BandHandle With Care ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1962. Used ... $11.99
Great work by this legendary hard swinging band – an early 60s American album issued on Atlantic Records, in the years before the Clark Boland Band's legendary run on MPS! Despite the early date, the album's got all the core elements of the band's sound in place – soaring rhythms, sharp-edged frontlines, and some great solo work by players who include Benny Bailey, Derek Humble, Jimmy Woode, Shahib Shihab, Idrees Sulieman, and Fats Sadi – coming together in a brilliant trans-Atlantic meeting of jazz talents! Tracks include "Long Note Blues", "Speedy Reeds", "Sonor", and "Om Mani Padme Hum". CD

New Lee MorganGigolo ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... $6.99
Tremendous work by Lee Morgan – easily one of his greatest albums, and a soaring session of modal energy that easily rivals the best work of the Impulse era! The album's got a slightly different feel than usual for Blue Note – a sense of freedom, joy, and soaring energy that's totally great – explored by a crack group that features Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Harold Mabern on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all coming together with a unique sense of creativity! The rhythm section is one of the key factors here – as Mabern, Cranshaw, and Higgins have a fluid groove that really sets the tone for the record – letting Morgan and Shorter stretch out to the height of their powers, and explore some incredible modal and soulful themes. Titles include the seminal 11 minute reading of "The Gigolo", plus "Yes I Can No You Can't", "Speedball", and "Trapped" – as well as an excellent reading of "You Go To My Head" that completely opens up the old standard! Plus, this CD reissue's got a bonus alternate take of "The Gigolo", for an extra 10 minutes of music! CD

John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... $7.99
The first, and arguably the best, of John Zorn's Naked City albums. The sound is extremely intense, and represents a blinding blend of influences, most of which Zorn had been showcasing in more easy going settings on previous albums. The core group includes Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Fred Frith, and Joey Baron – plus a guest appearance by Yamatsuka Eye. Hard to find on vinyl, and with the titles "Demon Sanctuary", "Speedball", "James Bond Theme", "Ingenous Ejaculation", "I Want To Live", and "Latin Quarter". CD

New SpeedometerThis Is Speedometer ... CD
Blow It Hard (UK), 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from Speedometer – a UK power-combo who've really grown their sound over the years! This one's the group's first full-length effort, and it's a really kickin little record with even more to offer than their great 45s! The group's expanded their lineup to feature some great horn work, smoking Hammond, and even some occasional sock-soul vocals from The Speedettes – a female group with a really great sound – not hokey or cliched at all, but with the searing style of some of the best deep soul female groups of the funk years, like The Emotions or The Exciters in their later recordings. The sets shifts easily from vocals to instrumentals – staying funky all the time, but nicely changing up the mode of the tunes. Titles include "What Am I Gonna Do", "Monkey Stick", "Wait Up", "It's Our Turn", "You Know You Can", "Mullet", "Growbag", and "Episode In Palmetto". CD
