Fred Anderson & Hamid DrakeFrom The River To The Ocean ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $6.99
A fresh album from one of the stronger partnerships in avant garde jazz – sax titan Fred Anderson and drummer/percussionist Hamid Drake – joined by some of the finest Chicago based players for set of slowbuilding, generously spacious material that might be even better their previous album for Thrill Jockey! Anderson's sax and Drake's drumming are as intuitive to each other as ever, and some bits of the record have a dual bass sound that really pulls us in! Josh Abrams and Harrison Bankhead bring the bass, with a great cello part by Bankhead on one track, and Jeff Parker plays some nice guitar. A masterful record with more of an ensemble approach than its predecessor! 5 long (or longish), languorously gripping tracks: "Planet E", "Strut Time", "For Brother Thompson", "From The River To The Ocean" and "Sakti/Shiva".

Sorry BambaSorry Bamba Vol 1 – 1970 to 1979 ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1970s. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
A wonderful testament to the legacy of Malian singer, flute player and group leader Sorry Bamba – documenting his years leading the Kanaga Orchestra Of Mopti throughout the 1970s – and a great, vital release on Thrill Jockey! The region's musical heritage is intergral to Sorry Bamba's music, but it's also relevant and contemporary to its period and ours – with guitar, bass, organ and horns along with more earthy percussion. His style of songs is pretty amazing, too – and often done with a sense of humor that could be easy to overlook to outsiders – but there's no overlooking how great the music is. Beautifully done by Thrill Jockey, compilers Alex Minoff & Ian Eagleson – with input and insight from Sorry Bamba himself. Includes "Yayoroba", "Boro", "Gambari", "Astan Kelly", "Sekou Amadou", "Sayouwe", "Porry", "Aisse", "Bayadjourou" and "Sare Mabo". CD

CalifoneQuicksand/Cradlesnakes ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $5.99
Califone perfects the meandering, deep blues-tinged psych-folk-rock electric and acoustic soul-baring Tim Rutili, Ben Massarella and co have been working on since the great Red Red Meat dissolved. There's a lot of soft, creaky melodies beneath all the clatter that cuts right to the bone – the group makes you work for it, but there's a helluva a lot of beauty to be dug here! Tracks include "One", "Horoscopic", Michigan Girls", "Your Golden Ass", "Town", "Mean Little Seed" and others. CD

New 8 Bold SoulsLast Option ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2000. Used ... $6.99
8 Bold Souls have been one of the most consistent (and compelling!) jazz units working in Chicago over the past 20 years – and thanks to the notable leadership of reed player Ed Wilkerson, the group has continued to grow and flourish, bridging a gap between an older AACM south side tradition, and the younger underground players on the north side. No surprise, then, that this album came out on the indie/post-rock stronghold Thrill Jockey – but don't let that put you off if you're a real jazz fan, because Wilkerson's vision is clearer and purer than ever, and the set bristles with excitement through a batch of sparkling original compositions written in a vaguely Mingus-y style. Titles include "Pachinko", "Gang Of Four", "Brown Town", and "Odyssey". CD

Extra GoldenHera Ma Nono ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2007. Used ... $8.99
A sublime second album on Thrill Jockey from Extra Golden – a more cohesive blend Kenyan benga and reverent American groove rock! The globally stretched partnership of the group continues on in honor of the deceased co-founding guitarist/singer/composer Otieno Jagwasi for this one. Opiyo Bilongo steps in on guitar and vocals for the set, joining guitarists Ian Egelson and Alex Minoff, drummer/vocalist Onyango Wuod Omari and some guest musicians – this time recording in the US. This time out the benga music takes a more profound lead role in the overall groove, and the soulful rock parts have fewer lead moments – and a subtle, intertwined elemental influence overall. Great stuff! Titles include "Jakolando", "Obama" (dedicated to our senator who helped them get clearance to travel to the US), "I Miss You", "Night Runners", "Street Parade", "Brothers Gone Away", "Love Hijackers" and "Hera Ma Nono".

Sea & CakeOne Bedroom ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2003. Used ... $4.99
The boys turn the whimsy back up a notch for their sweetly synth-soaked latest effort, and Prekop's voice has never been so confident and out front. The tunes seem longer and have a more languorous feel than their last couple records, but the hooks are just as sweet. It took a long while to come to the realization, but we don't know what we'd do without a new Sea & Cake record every couple of years – each one fits like a favorite sweater. As kind of a bonus track there's a nice electronic cover of Bowie's "Sound And Vision" that sounds really out of character for the usually predictable (but no less enjoyable) group. Other tracks include "Four Corners", "Left Side Clouded", "Hotel Tell", "Shoulder Length", "One Bedroom", "Interiors", "Mr. F", and "Try Nothing". CD

New TortoiseTortoise ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 1993. Used ... $4.99
Their first one, now a classic in the once burgeoning "post rock" genre (much as we hate using that term) – and it's hands down one of best and most influential albums to come out of Chicago in the early 90s! Spare, rhythmic blend of moody grooves laid down by 2 basses, 2 drummers, and a host of other instruments. This is the one that still featured Bundy "K for Killer" Brown, and overall, it feels more like the work of a core band than some of the densely-atmospheric and thickly-layered Tortoise records to come. Includes "Magnet Pulls Through", "Night Air", "Ry Cooder". "Tin Cans & Twine", "Flyrod", "On Noble", and more. CD

New Aki TsuyukoHokake (CD & Book) ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2006. Used CD & Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Subtle minimalist beauty from Takemura collaborator Aki Tsuyuko. Aki's only released a handful of recordings for indie stalwarts Thrill Jockey and Mokai/Drag City, all rendered in an austere but charming simplicity, with delicate vocal lines and off kilter keyboard melodies intertwining in gentle floating little tunes. This great, limited edition package adds a similar visual element to her work, with a wonderful hardbound book featuring handwritten notation for the songs alongside drawings by Aki. 9 numbers in all, including "Como Suite", "Owlet Hymn", "Bud Of A Song", "Dune & Clarinet", "Zou & Chou", "Aquilo", "Noel's Organ", "Rainbow train" and "Dance At Happy Night". CD
(Limited edition of 2000 copies.)
