New Mike Reed Loose AssemblySpeed Of Change ... CD
482 Music, 2008. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A damn great record from Mike Reed's Loose Assembly – exactly the kind of group that will get you excited about the jazz underground again! There's a richly creative vibe to the ensemble that draws on some of the best avant jazz traditions – 60s "new thing", early AACM improvisation, and other key moments – but the overall execution is hardly a copycat mode at all – as the players each have their own strong focus at key moments in the record, and bring things together with a freshness that really holds our interest throughout. In addition to core group members Mike Reed on drums and percussion, Greg Ward on alto sax, Tomeka Reid on cello, Josh Abrams on bass, and Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, the record also features some great work from Nicole Mitchell too – singing on one track with a really spiritual vibe, and adding her heavenly flute to another. Titles include "Picking Up Greta", "Garvey's Ghost", "Ground Swell", "The Speed Of Change", "X", "Soul Stirrer", and "Exit Strategy". CD

New David BowieLow (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Ryko, 1977. Used .... $9.99
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

Sonny RollinsSonny Rollins Plus 4 ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used .... $2.99
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

VariousTake Me Aosis – A Nite Out In London Compiled By Nik Weston ... CD
Aosis (Japan), 2003. Used .... $11.99
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.

Peven EverettStudio Confessions ... CD
ABB, 2002. Used .... Just Sold Out!
The first full and official album from Peven Everett – a professional release that pulls together the strands from his underground, self-released albums of the past few years! After knocking around as a young up and comer on the east coast scene, Peven went underground in Chicago a while back, and only issued titles in handmade format, on CD-R releases with little or no artwork. This album's the first one that he's issued with professional packaging, formatting, and recording quality – and it's the culmination of a number of years of woodshedding in the studio. The set's great – and builds off of tracks that Peven recorded for his previous self-issued Speed Of Light CD, plus new tracks – all produced and presented to perfection, in a setting that's sure to rise Peven's star as much as we've been hoping. The whole thing's wonderful – smooth, soulful, and classic – in a mode that we haven't heard since D'Angelo or Omar first came onto the scene. Titles include "World Love", "Everyday Girl", "They So Cold", "I Can Give It", "Sankofa", "Say It Back", and "I Wanna Make Love". CD

New David BowieStage (quad-fold edition) ... CD
Virgin, 1978. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous live set cut during the height of David Bowie's years in Berlin – and the kind of performance that showed that his more experimental work from this time could be every bit as appealing as the classics! The first half of the set features some amazing numbers from the Heroes and Low years – presented here with some darker orchestrations that sound really wonderful, and which slightly recast the styles of the tunes on the albums. The second half mixes in some older classics with a few surprising bits – making for the kind of "star appeal" that must have been welcome to more mainstream Bowie fans during these more obscure years. 20 tracks in all – including "Beauty & The Beast", "Breaking Glass", "Speed Of Life", "What In The World", "Heroes", "Warszawa", "Be My Wife", "Soul Love", "Star", "Art Decade", "Alabama Song", "TVC 15", and "Ziggy Stardust".

New Fela & Africa 70Zombie (LP sleeve edition plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Celluloid/Knitting Factory, 1977. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

New Russ GiguereHexagram 16 ... CD
Warner/Real Gone, 1971. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty great solo set from Russ Giguere – a singer best-known for his work in The Association – stepping out here in a style that's deeply personal, and all his own! The album definitely echoes some of the Association shift in the late Warner years – especially that move from warm harmony pop to some more roots rock-inspired instrumentation – but the personal portrayal by Russ is what really sends the whole thing home – in a mode that's definitely got the same sort of genre-defying qualities of the best Warner rock of the time. Only a handful of tunes are originals, but Giguere really makes them his own – and the instrumentation is often quite inventive – and features an array of musicians that includes Bobby Womack and Judee Sill on guitars, Spooner Oldham on piano, Larry Knechtel on celeste and piano, Emil Richards on percussion, and Bud Shank and Bill Perkins on saxes and flute. Titles include "In New Germany", "Rosarita Beach Cafe", "Pegasus", "Shop Around", "Let It Flow", "Now We Begin", and "Brother Speed". CD

New Michael JacksonBad – 25th Anniversary Edition (2CDs) ... CD
Epic, 1987. Used 2CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". 2CD version is filled with great bonus material – a huge amount of tracks that include "Free", "Song Groove", "I'm So Blue", "Don't Be Messin Round", "Streetwalker", "Fly Away", "Price Of Fame", "Todo Mi Amor Eres Tu", "Je Ne Vieux Pas La Fin De Nous", "Bad (Afrojack rmx)", "Speed Demon (Nero rmx)", and "Bad (Afrojack club)".

New Little BrotherListening ... CD
ABB, 2002. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The debut from North Carolina organic hip hop crew Little Brother – an unexpectly strong and soulful effort in the vein of the Roots, mid-career Tribe Called Quest, and early Slum Village! The trio of Phonte, Pooh, and 9th Wonder have been kicking around Durham, NC and the southern hip hop scene for a while – representing the Justus League collective and other groups – but they have a stronger foundation with Little Brother that should make them known the world over if there's any true justice out there! Fans of the Okayplayers and the above mentioned artists will find much to love here – laid back, southern-drenched soulful hip hop (as opposed to hip hop soul) – and let's all thank ABB for thinking beyond the Bay, nurturing some truly worthy status quo defying artists, and giving the south some left coast indie support!!! Tracks include "Morning", "Groupie Pt. 2", "For You", "Speed", "Whatever You Say", "Make Me Hot", "Shorty On The Lookout", "The Way you Do It", "The Getup" and more. 17 tracks, playing just north of an hour.

New VariousDramatic Funk Themes Vol 1 – British Rare Grooves From The Themes International Music Library 1973 to 1976 ... CD
Show Up (Germany), Mid 70s. Used .... Out Of Stock
Rare tracks in a world of already-rare music – a collection of funky numbers from the Themes International sound library – none of which have ever been released commercially before! The package is a great addition to the realm of sound library funk – and although the names here are familiar from their work for other labels, the tracks are all plenty darn fresh – often a fair bit electric, in keeping with the mid 70s vintage of the music! There's loads of funky beats, bumping basslines, and sweet keyboards lines on most of the cuts – and overall, the work here reminds us of some of the best funk from mid 70s Italian police films, or American cop shows from the same time. CD package features some great notes, as well as original Themes International cover images – and titles include "Flashpoint" and "High Diver" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Flying Squad" by Kenny Salmon, "Soul Train" by Les Hurdle, "Override" by Keith Roberts, "The Observer" by David Lindup, "Soul Slap" by Madeline Bell & Alan Parker, "El Zoro" by Mike Moran, "Sweeney Todd" by Alan Parker, "Get Up & Go" by Kenny Salmon, "Headlights" and "Scenechange 6a" by Alan Tew, "Inside Information" by David Lindup, and "Speed Run" by Alan Hawkshaw. – CD

SpeedometerThis Is Speedometer ... CD
Blow It Hard (UK), 2003. Used .... $13.99
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

Speedy West & Jimmy BryantStratosphere Boogie – The Flaming Guitars Of Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant ... CD
Razor & Tie, Early/Mid 50s. Used .... $8.99
Speedy West may be the greatest pedal steel slinger in the history of the instrument, and together with ace guitarist Jimmy Bryant they bridged the gap between the 50s Western swing of Bob Wills and the soon to arrive Sun Records sound with their pioneering country-jazz instrumentals. This is essential stuff for fans of traditional country stompers – or sweaty, swaggering boogie in any genre! Tracks include "Stratosphere Boogie", "Blue Bonnet Rag", "Cotton' Picking", "Old Joe Clark", "Slepwalker's Lullaby", "Arkansas Traveler", "The Night Rider", "Speedin' West", "Comin' On", "Bryant's Bounce", "Pickin' Peppers", "Shuffleboard Rag", "Filppin' The Lid" and lots more.

New Michael HendersonSlingshot ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1981. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Much as we like Michael Henderson, we almost want to hate him for the cover of this one – which features him in a skin-tight Speedo – but the record is just too damn good! The music is fantastic – and is sort of an update of the earlier east coast smooth soul sound, with lots of elements of older harmony soul, wrapped up in some modern arrangements that work better for Henderson's voice than those on some of his other albums. The record's got a few tracks that are clinkers – more uptempo tunes that don't work well – but Henderson really shines on sophisticated interpretations of classics like "Never Gonna Give You Up" and "Make It Easy On Yourself", as well as on modern tunes like "Can't We Fall In Love Again" with Phyllis Hyman, "Take Care", and "Come To Me".

New Lennie TristanoLennie Tristano/New Tristano ... CD
Atlantic, 1955/1961. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-length set of work from one of the greatest pianists of the 50s – both of his Atlantic albums together on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Lennie Tristano, from 1955 – darkly imaginative work from the great Tristano – and one of the few full albums he ever cut as a leader! The record features the incredible track "Turkish Mambo" – which has Tristano overdubbed 3 times in this dark modal way that's totally amazing, and which will hook you into his playing immediately! A number of other tracks feature a quartet with Lee Konitz – always a good match for Tristano – and a few others have a great trio that's completed by Peter Ind and Jeff Morton. Tracks include "Requiem", "East 32nd", "You Go To My Head", and "Line Up". New Tristano is an incredible record by Lenny – one that features him playing solo piano, but in a way that's so inventive, so creative, so pyrotechnic, that Atlantic Records had to include text on the back cover saying "No use is made of multi-tracking, over-dubbing, or tape-speeding." The album's also one of the last (the last?) that Lennie ever cut – and although many other players are kind of faltering in last sessions like this, Lennie's sounding better than ever – ready to take on a realm of new challenges in the 60s. Titles include "Love Lines", "G Minor Complex", "Becoming", and "Deliberation". CD

New Stanley TurrentineCherry (Japanese pressing) ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1972. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best CTI albums from the early 70s – and one of Stanley Turrentine's funkiest records as well! The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some tight changes and more pronounced rhythms that really give the best cuts a great groove! The group's a sextet – with Bob James on electric piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Cobham on drums – and titles include a monster version of Weldon Irvine's "Sister Sanctified" – a great funk tune that's probably best known as the sample for "My Philosophy" by BDP! Other tracks include "Speedball", "Cherry", and "The Revs". CD

New VariousDouble Blast Of Super Soul – Saturday Night At The Uptown/Apollo Saturday Night ... CD
Pacific, Mid 60s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible session of soul – tracks recorded live at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, featuring some of the hippest Stax and Atlantic artists in a very raw setting! The album's got a feel that's a lot less forced than other famous live Apollo sets of the time – very relaxed, but very authentic too – as the singers are given plenty of space to take the lead, and heard here with a quality that's more spontaneous than some of their studio sides. The audience gets a bit of space – but never as bombastically so as on a James Brown record – and given how many artists Atlantic discovered at The Apollo, the album's a nice nod of "thanks" in the right direction! Titles include "I Found A Love" and "Alabama Bound" by The Falcons, "Pain In My Heart" and "These Arms Of Mine" by Otis Redding, "Speedo's Back In Town" by The Coasters, "Misty" and "Say Yeah" by Doris Troy, "Rockin Chair" and "Walkin The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "Stand By Me" and "Groovin" by Ben E King, and a special finale version of "What'd I Say". Classic live stuff at the Uptown Theatre in Philly, with a mix of Atlantic artists, and artists borrowed from other east coast labels. Performances include "My Girl Sloopy" by The Vibrations, "Down The Aisle" by Patti LaBell & The Bluebells, "If You Need Me" by Wilson Pickett, "The Watusi" by The Vibrations, "Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl" by Patti & The Emblems, "Can't You Hear The Beat" by The Carltons, and more!
