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!

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 BowieLow ... CD
RCA/Virgin, 1977. Used ... Temporarily 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". CD

New Fela & Africa 70Zombie (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Barclay (France), 1977. Used ... 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 Renaud Garcia-FonsBeyond The Double Bass (CD & DVD) ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2014. Used CD & DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing document of this groundbreaking bassist – a musician who handles his instrument like nobody else we've ever heard before – with so many different strands running through his technique! Renaud is able to pluck the bass with the speed and dexterity of a flamenco guitarist, yet bow the instrument with the depth of a classical musician – while always keeping things swinging, in a relatively jazzy style overall – a mindblowing hybrid of sounds and modes of expression, captured beautifully in this collection of the best cuts from his past ten albums, plus two more new titles as well. Other instrumentation is often light, with an older European influence – a bit of bandoneon, guitar, percussion, or reeds – used in ways that flesh out the colors first initiated by Renaud. Titles include "En Mi Barrio", "Entremundo", "Funambule", "Al Camaron", "Hommage A Ostad", "Wadi Rum", "Berimbass", and "Bari". Also features a documentary film on Renaud Garcia-Fons – with subtitles in English, German, Spanish, and Italian. CD

Stanley ClarkeTime Exposure ... CD
Epic, 1984. Used ... $8.99
A nice funky electric groover from Stanley Clarke's mid 80s R&B years! Time Exposure has a lot of period electro funk in the mix, particularly Clarke's impeccable bass lines, which are heavy throughout! A brilliant mix of 80s fusiony future funk with jazz precision – definitely a funky highlight from this period in Clarke's career – and those bass lines are just unreal! A pretty eclectic roster of guest musicians play on this one, including tenor sax player Ernie Watts, fellow bassist Louis Johnson of Brothers Johnson, singer Howard Hewitt and rock guitar guru Jeff Beck. Titles include "Play The Bass 10", "Are You Ready (For The Future)", "Heaven Sent You", "Time Exposure", "Speedball", "Future Shock", "Spacerunner", "I Know Just How You Feel" and more. CD

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

New Vandermark 5Beat Reader ... CD
Atavistic, 2008. Used ... $7.99
Searing work from the Vandermark 5 – just the kind of set that shows why these guys are have been one of the greatest things going on the US jazz scene for many years! In addition to Ken Vandermark's always-great work on reeds – baritone sax and clarinets this time around – the group's got a rock-solid rhythm section in drummer Tim Daisy and bassist Kent Kessler, both of whom play with a tremendous sense of power and timing, yet never in ways that are too-jamming or too over the top. The cello and light electronics of Fred Lonberg-Holm rounds out a slightly gentler side of the group's sound, and provides some great tonal colors too – and Dave Rempis joins Vandermark as the second reedman, blowing tremendous tenor and alto lines with a great sense of shape. Titles include "Friction", "Speedplay", "Signposts", "New Acrylic", "Any Given Number", and "Desireless". CD

New TS MonkMore Of The Good Life ... CD
Mirage/FTG, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An 80s classic from TS Monk – a set that nicely follows the spirit of his debut, with lots of the same catchy rhythmic appeal! Monk's vocals are mixed with two female singers – making for a cool harmony groove that really warms things up amidst the beats, basslines, and keyboards – almost with more of a late 70s sound than you might expect from the date – a captivatingly soulful style that keeps this one holding up strongly over the years! Titles include "Falling In Love With You", "Oh Oh Speedo", "First Lady Of Love", "More To Love", and "Too Much Too Soon". CD

New John ZornNaked City ... CD
Elektra, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 BT ExpressBest Of BT Express ... CD
Rhino, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Classic funk and disco! BT Express are a perfect example of the transformation that many east coast groups underwent in the mid 70s – shifting from rootsier funk into smoother sounds that worked perfectly for the dancefloor, speeding things up a bit, but still never losing the tight playing that made them great in the first place. This 15 track collection pulls together tracks from their earlier years at Scepter, and their later days at Columbia – and includes many nice groovers like "This House Is Smokin", "Express", "Mental Telepathy", "Peace Pipe", "Close To You", "Shout It Out", "Energy To Burn", "Does It Feel Good", "Stretch", and "Do It (Til You're Satisfied)".

New Martha High & SpeedometerSoul Overdue ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
The smoking return of Martha High – a singer who worked famously with James Brown during his funk years, but who never got the same shot at full-length fame as Lyn Collins or Marva Whitney! Martha's every bit as great – and although she did cut later records in the disco years, it's only recently that folks have finally discovered the true depths of her talents – as she's returned to the fold with amazing vocals, and strong support from the global funk underground! After a previous set with Shaolin Temple Defenders, Martha breaks out even more strongly here with backing from Speedometer – a UK combo who've played together for years, and are already razor-sharp on their own – making for the perfect sort of groove to restore High to the sound of her years with James Brown. The album's brilliant all the way through – not a rehash of older modes, but a rich union of two very strong talents – coming together in an effort that's definitely greater than the sum of its parts. Titles include "I'd Rather Go Blind", "No More Heartaches", "No Man Worries", "Never Never Love A Married Man", "You Got It", "You Got Me Started", "Dragging Me Down", and "Trouble Man". CD

New Uwe KropinskiSolo ... CD
Amiga (Germany), 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Solo acoustic guitar from Uwe Kropinsky – played with incredible dexterity at times, and a great ear for a wide range of sounds that don't always come from the strings! At some level, Kropinsky has this quality that echoes earlier work by Paco DeLucia, or other players on the Spanish scene – but his overall style is also a lot more experimental and offbeat, too – with plenty of echoes of some of the more inventive improvising guitarists of the 70s and 80s – although without ever going as outside as any of them. So in a way, Kropinski's almost a guy who knows about all the possibilities that a player like Derek Bailey or Fred Frith might have unlocked – yet he's also got a great way of still holding onto a tune, and making things swing! Titles include "April April", "Percussion + Tunes", "Speedy Gonzalez", "Flageolett Dance", and "Meine Kleine Spanische". CD

New Armando TrovajoliL'Amore Dice Ciao – Tema Originale Dal Film La Matriarca ... CD
GDM/King (Japan), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This is one of the best groovy soundtracks we've heard in ages – and it's all built around one lovely little melody – in a way that's similar to Francis Lai's legendary Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version" CD
