New Art FarmerModern Art (PA USA pressing) ... LP
United Artists/PA USA, 1958. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A seminal session as a leader by the young Art Farmer – recorded for United Artists, and a great set of tight lyrical tunes, played by Farmer in his sparkling style – in a group along with Benny Golson on tenor and Bill Evans on piano. Evans is a special treat here, as the 1958 session was recorded at a time when he was making a fair bit of appearances in various rhythm sections for horn players (like Miles Davis) – and although this role in Evans' career was a short one, it yielded some amazingly beautiful moments, as you'll hear on this album. Art's brother Addison plays bass, and Dave Bailey rounds out the group on drums. Tracks include "Cold Breeze", "Mox Nix", "Jubilation", and "Fair Weather". LP, Vinyl record album

Muyei PowerSierra Leone In 70s USA ... CD
Soundway (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A hip group from Sierra Leone – but one who recorded these tracks in the US during the late 70s – which makes for a very unusual hybrid of sounds! The group's original approach was to update regional sounds from their nation, and avoid some of the more commercial cover versions of Anglo hits on the market – but over the years they played a fair bit on the Canary Islands, and then on the west coast of the US – and seemed to pick up a range of funky influences in the process! The result is a sound that's rooted in Africa, but peppered with lots of skittish rhythms and fast instrumental riffing – a bit like some of the post-colonial work on the London and Paris scenes of the time, but a bit different too. The cuts here were all originally issued in the US on the Makossa label – that hotbed of cross-cultural creativity – and titles include "Bi Loko", "Yamba Sowe", "Wali Bena", "Be Patient", and "Ben Ben Bee".

The rest of the lineup is quite free too – with Dave Holland on bass and Barry Altschul on percussion – a pair who sometimes hit rhythmic impulses at the best moments, but also often stretch out and do their thing in a relatively free way too.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99 22.99
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 7 x 7" ... $49.99
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the 50s – very much like the sort of territory that Keb Darge has explored on his excellent sets with Little Edith – and the kind of sounds that go way way beyond well-known hits from the period! Smith digs very deep in the crates, and gets some help with selections from Deano Sounds as well – on this smoking set that includes "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, "Doing All Right" by Eddie Cash, "Swingin & Surfin" by Les Brown Jr, "Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, "High School Caesar" by Reggie Perkins, "Monkey's Uncle" by Ray Sharpe, and "Pack Shack & Stack" by Billy Nelson. 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousPunk 45 Vol 1– Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! – Underground Punk In The USA 1973 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
Way more than just the usual punk collection you might expect – not just LA hardcore or New York downtown, and instead a really wide range of work from the American underground of the 70s – including some really key tracks by artists who were working in a punkish mode a few years before the style ever had a name! Soul Jazz have really done an excellent job with this set – scanning a wealth of rare indie singles to come up with a set of tracks that virtually writes the history of the emergence of punk rock on the American shores – work that owes very little to the UK wave, and which instead really reflects the unique hybrid of styles that infected US material from the start. There's loads of cuts on here that we'd totally forgotten about – all brought together with the usual great Soul Jazz sense of history, reflected in the notes – and titles include "Let's Get Rid Of New York" by The Randoms, "I'm A Bug" by The Urinals, "Cakes In The Home" by Crash Course In Science, "Not Now No Way" by The Pagans, "Flash Of The Moment" by Pastiche, "Neutron Bomb" by The Controllers, "Action" by The Knots, "Dog Meat" by Flamin Groovies, "Kill The Hippies" by The Deadbeats, "US Millie" by Theoretical Girls, "Wild Weekend" by The Zeros, "Ice Age" by The Bizarros, and "Hillside Strangler" by Hollywood Squares.

Atlantic/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Early December, 2014
The 5's first studio album, and arguably their best overall. It's not quite as loose around the edges as Kick Out The Jams – a much tighter exercise than you'd expect from the boys after that live monster. Loud, rebellious juvenile teen anthems, as played by guys who were so burly in their early 20s you'd think they were vintage pro wrestlers. Pure rawk greatness! Includes "Tutti Frutti", "Teenage Lust", "High School", "Shakin Street", "The Human Being Lawnmower" and "Back In The USA". LP, Vinyl record album

New People's ChoiceBoogie Down USA ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most successful albums cut by People's Choice during the 70s – and a record that shows them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. Yet despite the easily imagined disco that the title might indicate, the album's actually got some great soul tracks – filled with the heavy Philly soul of earlier days, stretched out a bit more professionally thanks to production help from Gamble & Huff. Frankie Brunson's great on vocals and keyboards, and the band grooves hard and tight on most of the album. Tracks include "Do It Any Way You Wanna", "Mickey D's", "Party Is A Groovy Thing", "Don't Send Me Away", and "I'm Leaving You". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousJazz Club – Bossa Nova USA ... CD
Universal (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The American take on the sound of bossa nova – a mode that started almost as soon as the first sounds headed north from Rio, and which grew to become a very important contribution to the music in the 60s! We love the originals by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa, Joao Gilberto, and others – but we also totally dig these American reinterpretations by musicians on Verve, Fantasy, and other hip labels of the 60s – players who really got into the sound of Brazilian rhythms, and used the new groove to unlock some great power in their own solo playing as well! The package mostly features 60s recordings, with a few gems from later years – and titles include "Temanco No Samba" by Cal Tjader, "Samba De Orfeu" by Bob Brookmeyer, "O Morro" by Wes Montgemery, "Samba With Some Barbecue" by Paul Desmond, "Desafinado" by Charlie Byrd, "Um Abraco No Bonfa" by Coleman Hawkins, "Jazz Bossa Nova" by Milt Jackson, "Nana" by Kenny Burrell, "O Grande Amor" by Stan Getz, and "Mas Que Nada" by Hank Jones & Oliver Nelson.

Soul Jazz (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning book of photographs to stand alongside the excellent album art books done by the Soul Jazz label – a treasure trove of hardly-seen images of some of the best underground musicians of the 60s and 70s – and a great antidote to the sorts of jazz books that are only just filled with pictures of Duke, Louis, and Miles! In true Soul Jazz fashion, the volume shines the spotlight on key avant and spiritual jazz figures – like Roland Kirk, Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler, Elvin Jones, Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, Alice Coltrane, Lloyd McNeil, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Max Roach, Larry Young, and many others – each of whom get at least one very vivid photo (some black and white, some color), and a short bit of text that introduces their music and placement in jazz. To be fair, there's also some shots of Miles, too – but shown in a very different context in this great book! 189 pages, oversize, with a great hardcover package. Book

New Dave BrubeckBossa Nova USA ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just a gimmicky bossa nova session – and a surprisingly great showcase for the inventive rhythms of the Brubeck group, and the sensitive alto work of Paul Desmond! The record's got a really different feel than some of Dave's other work for Columbia – in that the modernism is put slightly on the back burner – letting drummer Joe Morello snap out with some lightly gliding percussion that's a bit more straight ahead than usual, and which offers a unique take on the bossa groove. Paul Desmond's the real star of the set, though – and his alto steps out here with the best gentle presence of his later work for RCA and A&M – beautifully blown throughout, and with a tone that most other players would die for! Titles include "Bossa Nova USA", "Coracao Sensivel", "Theme For June", "Lamento", and "Cantiga Nova Swing". CD

New Willie MabonI'm The Fixer – The Best Of The USA Sessions ... CD
USA/Fuel 2000, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really great work from singer Willie Mabon – best known as a Chicago bluesman from the 50s, but an artist who's in even more soulful territory on these sublime sides from the 60s! Willie's got a quality here that really links together Chicago's blues and soul traditions – in a vibe that prefaces later work by singers like Tyrone Davis or Syl Johnson, but shares their similar sense of deep roots and modern swing. Mabon's a hell of a charismatic force on all these cuts – a singer really ripe for rediscovery, especially on this overlooked stretch of his career. The work was all done for the excellent USA label, and shares the genre-stepping quality of much of that imprint's best music – and titles include "Some More", "Something For Nothing", "Got To Have Some", "Just Got Some", "I'm The Fixer", "Too Hot To Handle", "Somebody Gotta Pay", and "Ruby's Monkey".

New Alphonse MouzonBack To Jazz ... LP
PA USA, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Alphonze Mouzon goes back to jazz – after years of working in funky fusion and R&B – but overall, the set's still got some nice electric touches that link it to his other work. (And let's be honest, it's not like Mouzon ever really recorded any straight jazz sets in the early years – he kind of just started out as a funky drummer from the get-go.) Overall, the feel is a mix of acoustic and electric playing – in the manner of some major label jazz sets from the time – and even Mouzon plays a bit of electric, using synth drums on a number of tracks. Titles include "The Next Time We Love", "Peace On Earth", "St Thomas", "Space Commander", "Just Because Of You", and a remake of his 70s funk classic "Poobli". LP, Vinyl record album

Rafael CameronCameron's In Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $22.99
Rafael Cameron's in love, but he never lets his groove go down at all – thanks to some super-sharp production and arrangements from the legendary Randy Muller! Muller had great success with BT Express and Brass Construction – and he uses that style of upbeat, uptempo funk strongly here underneath Cameron's vocals – at a level that's a mix of 80s groove and electro, with lots of sweet keyboard lines that crackle perfectly alongside Rafael's vocals. There's just a few mellower moments – which remind us that Cameron can be a deeper soul singer when he wants – and titles include "Number One", "Funtown USA", "Daisy", "In Love", "Let's Get Married", and "All That's Good To Me". CD features bonus tracks – "All That's Good To Me (Francois Kevorkian 12" mix)", "Boogie's Gonna Get Ya (Francois Kevorkian 12" inst)", "Funtown USA (single version)", and "All That's Good To Me (single version)".

ClashClash (UK version) ... CD
Epic, 1977. Used ... $5.99
One of the most stunning debut albums of the 70s – and a set that burst on the scene with a sound that summed up a generation, but which had never been heard this clearly before! This self-titled Clash album was different from other landmarks of the time – work by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, and others – as the group had a sense of raw power, but also a tunefulness too – a way of pushing their message into territory that others wouldn't have reached – with tunes that were as surprisingly hummable as they were politically correct! There's a bit less Jamaican influence here than in later Clash years, but that quality is still present somewhat – and over the years, this is definitely a set we can return to again and again – with no sense of apology or outdated ideals at all. Nearly every cut's a classic – and the original UK tracklist includes "Janie Jones", "Career Opportunities", "Police & Thieves", "Garageland", "White Riot", "London's Burning", "Deny", "I'm So Bored With The USA".

A surprisingly solid, oft-overlooked end of the 70s set for Sire by Flamin' Groovies – their final effort for the label – and a hard-groovin' gem! Like their previous couple of classic records, this one was recorded in England, with Groovies guitarist Cyril Jordan co-producting, and it's a nice mix of rawly rocking originals and some cool cover versions – with "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", a cool, kinda shambling guitar rock takes on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves Of London" and Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and more.

Chico HamiltonWith Strings Attached ... LP
Warner, 1959. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the best records that Chico Hamilton cut during the 50s – and one that features Eric Dolphy, who was with Chico's group for a short while! The record's got the quintet (which also includes the excellent Dennis Budimir on guitar) fronting larger string arrangements by Fred Katz (no longer their cellist, but still a key force here) – and the approach is a great expansion on the earlier styles that Chico forged for Pacific Jazz. The strings here are never sleepy, and instead have a dark and modern feel overall – similar to Ralph Burns' best work of the time, but a bit more restrained – and Eric Dolphy's reed work really keeps things interesting, with sharp-edged notes give most of the tracks a fair bit of depth. Titles include "Modes", "Strange", "Don's Delight", "Andante", "Fair Weather", "Something To Live For", and "Pottsville USA". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmie HaskellCalifornia 99 ... LP
Dunhill, 1971. Very Good ... $16.99
One of the wildest albums ever done by arranger Jimmie Haskell – an early 70s concept album that imagines changes in the US during the 70s and 80s – a near-total decline that leads to the entire country being re-named as California in the 90s! The highly-imaginative record is an audio dystopia on a par with movies of the time like Soylent Green or The Omega Man – and it comes complete with a full map of the newly-configured USA, as well as a timeline telling all of the changes to come! Haskell's music is some of his funkiest ever – building nicely on his pop work of the 60s, but opening up to some great orchestrations that almost rival David Axelrod for their balance of fullness, space, and heavy rhythms on the bottom. Vocals on the record are by Jimmy Witherspoon, Denny Doherty, Joe Walsh, Clydie King, and Merry Clayton – and titles include "Appopopopoulisberg", "Jessica Stone", "California Fairy Tale", "Barbara", and "Underture" – a great remake of the theme from The Who's Tommy!

HermanI've Made Up My Mind ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $21.99
A really compelling talent from early 70s Brunswick Records – by an artist who's got the same sort of genre-crossing vibe as Rodriguez, Jose Feliciano, or the team of Alzo & Udine! Herman hails from Colombia, but was a high school student in Miami at the time of this album – yet he also works with a great quartet of Chicago soul talents – Carl Davis and Eugene Record on production, Tom Tom Washington on arrangements, and Willie Henderson directing the whole band! The result is a unique hybrid of modes – folksy acoustic guitar from Herman, vocals that have a slightly progressive feel, and backings that sometimes groove in a Chicago soul mode, and sometimes go for a deeper vibe overall. Most tunes are originals penned by Herman – and titles include "Bring On The Rain", "I've Made Up My Mind", "Save The USA", "Stephy", "I Wanna Be Young Again", and "Take A Look At Me". CD

Quincy JonesStrike Up The Band ... CD
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... $7.99
A tasty collection of Quincy Jones' early 60s recordings for Mercury – and one that focuses on some of the tightest and grooviest tunes from the time! The approach here is a wonderful blend of soul jazz rhythms, modern arrangements, and some of Quincy's more soundtrack-oriented styles of the time – an style that's always sensitive to the strengths of the individual players in the group, yet which also sets them up in some backings that move along beautifully with a tremendous sense of groove! Quincy's bands at this point were overflowing with great talent – players like Lalo Schifrin, Zoot Sims, Roland Kirk, James Moody, Bobby Scott, Gary Burton, Jerome Richardson, and Toots Thielemans – all of whom make great contributions to these tunes. And the set features a whopping 14 tracks in all – with titles that include "Dreamsville", "Bossa Nova USA", "Take Five", "Jive Samba", "Soldier In The Rain", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Baby Elephant Walk", "Cast Your Fate To The Wind", and "Desafinado".

SuicideSuicide ... LP
Red Star, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a seminal bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s. With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. Ok, maybe we're going out on a limb – but this record has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock albums of all time. Includes the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree" – plus the unreleased remix of "Cheree". LP, Vinyl record album

New James Blood UlmerAmerica – Do You Remember The Love? ... LP
Blue Note, 1987. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Ulmer on Blue Note – who'd a thunk it? And oddly, although the album's on one of the most jazz-based labels at the time, it's also one of Ulmer's most rock-oriented – with strong lead vocals on nearly every track, and an overall style that's as bluesy as it is experimentally jazzy. Ulmer's clearly emerged as a star in his own right (or own mind) by the time of the album – and there's less of the shared group dynamic of the harmelodic years, and more of a style that's set up to support his lead presence. Players include Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Nicky Skopelitis – and titles include "I Belong In The USA", "Lady Blue", "After Dark", "Black Sheep", and "Show Me Your Love America".

Rare underground sounds from Germany in the 80s – unique 4-track home recordings that are low-fi and fringe-y, but also oddly tuneful and compelling! You can pretty much discard any preconceived notions of what you might expect from 80s underground Germany – there's hardly a strobe-lit club or nascent industrial rock sound to be found. The material has the faintest traces of things like the mid-to-late 70s nasty electro of Suicide, the arty weirdness of pre-Warner Brothers Devo, and other noisy electronic pioneers of the pre- and post-punk years – but it's ultimately very original and distinctly German.

An amazing 8 CD collection of rare rhythm & blues, jump tunes, and gospel-tinged soul from the Nashville independent scene of the 40s and 50s! Long, LONG before "Music City USA" was churning product the way it does today, Nashville had a true working class ethic along with the standard biz behavior, with lots of indies with full rosters of amazing artists that never got their just rewards. It wasn't just country down there – labels like Bullet, Tennessee, Republic, Excello and others represented the soulful sounds of Nashville, and these long lost treasures are in many cases getting their first legit reissues here! 7 CDs of music, thematically assorted, and a bonus disc with interviews. Also includes the most massive, well done book we've ever seen included in a set like this – 276 hardbound glossy pages, full of photos and richly written bios and history.

Here's where things really started getting interesting for James Brown! The album was issued right around the same time as James' single "Out Of Sight" on Smash – and like that track, "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" was one of the first to use that "instruments on the beat" style of funk that would dominate all of James' work in years to come – that amazing groove that completely turned soul music on its ear – and paved the way for generations to come! The result is a startling sound that forever changed the face of groove – and you'll hear it nicely placed on this album, along with great cuts like "Cross Firing", "Mashed Potatoes USA", "Doin The Limbo", and "Love Don't Love Nobody".

A reimagined version of the legendary Yellow Pills compilation on Numero – 20 songs from the original compilation, plus two bonus tracks, new liner notes, and lots of cool sleeve scans, photos, and more! Forget everything you know about rock music in the late 70s – all the punk rock and new wave that's been immortalized over the years – and get ready to discover a whole new world of power pop! At the time, the power pop underground was as important to some ears as the artier and angrier work coming out of the east coast and UK – and the power pop world was one that could co-exist a bit more peacefully with mainstream rock, while still offering a great opportunity for bands on various local scenes. The work here has echoes of more famous acts of the time – like The Cars, The Kings, or The Knack – but it's also got a bit more of a home-grown, punk rock edge – one that comes through beautifully in the guitar parts, vocals, and unabashed hooks of the tunes. The set's a follow-up to the original Yellow Pills set by zine publisher Jordan Oakes – and it delves deeper than even that one, with a real focus on work from the end of the 70s, and acts that never had great chart success overall. Titles include "High School" by Tommy Rock, "She's Hi Fi" by The Trend, "There Goes My Heart Again" by The Kids, "Not My Girl Anymore" by The Bats, "All I Want" by The Colors, "Domestic/Imported" by The Toms, "Sunshine USA" by Randy Winburn, "One In A Million" by Luxury, "She's The Girl" by The Tweeds, "Rave It Up" by Colors, and "Hey Little Girl" by The Kids.

Cotillion, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10x7inch (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of singles from the legendary Cotillion arm of Atlantic Records – all presented as individual 7" records with original labels, served up in a hip limited edition package! The work here would already be great as a CD compilation – but it's extra special when served up in this stunning format – like finding a pile of rare soul singles in the back of a rack in an overlooked record store – still in great shape, and ready to explode anew on your turntable! The music is very well-chosen – and includes cuts by some key artists who only worked briefly for Cotillion, and never cut a full album for the label – such as Baby Washington, Otis Clay, or Walter Jackson. Other artists are ones who really hit their height at Cotillion, but still remain relatively obscure – and the singles here easily represent some of their best work ever. All cuts are right from the hippest tail end of the 60s – and titles include "Do Right Woman" and "That Kind Of Lovin" by Otis Clay, "Keep On Striving" and "Come On Let Me Love You" by Moses Smith, "Night After Night" and "The Love That I Needed" by The Blendells, "The Love Of My Woman" and "I Wanna Go Home" by Darrell Banks, "I've Fallen In Love" and "You Are The Circus" by C & The Shells, "Any Way That You Want Me" and "Life Has Its Ups & Downs" by Walter Jackson, "I Gotta Get Back To Lovin You" and "LA/USA" by Hollywood Spectrum, "I Don't Know" and "I Can't Afford To Lose Him" by Baby Washington, "Don't Play That Song" and "People In Love" by Lou Johnson, and "Ain't No Sun" and "Murder IN The First Degree" by The Dynamics. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Early 60s recordings by Herbert Hunter, a number of which are recorded with pseudonyms – rollicking & rockin' number that preceded the Spar singles that still fire up the Northern Soul connoisseurs – his earliest recordings for Spar! Hunter never had a smash breakout hit, but he did find one heck of a solid soul groove with Nashville producer Ted Jarrett in later years. Here he's trying out dance craze numbers and other trendy styles from the period, and they're pretty much nailing each, track after track!

A unique collaboration from disco maestro Giorgio Moroder – a rare early 80s project done with vocals from singer Joe Esposito – who'd first risen to fame in the 70s trio Brooklyn Dreams! Joe's raspy lead gives the tunes a lyrical center you don't always get with Moroder – vocals that are sometimes more upfront than Giorgio's electronics and keyboards, and which definitely give the music a blue-eyed quality that should have made the set more of a crossover hit. The grooves still have plenty of Moroder touches at the bottom – and titles include "Lady Lady", "To Turn The Stone", "Washed In The Neon Light", "My Girl", "Solitary Man", "Too Hot To Touch", "A Love Affair", and "Show Me The Night".

The group have a beautiful way of putting over a tune – some warm harmonies, ala CSN, and a soaring sense of rhythm that's really great – almost joyous at times, and quite different than some of the heavier, darker groups that got issued on UK Deram at the time. The vocals are decidedly American-inflected too – as are the guitars, which are played to perfection, often with a ringing quality that matches the vocals – yet never in a way that's too overproduced or commercial.

A wonderful twin-alto session from the mid 50s – and one of our favorites from the RCA jazz years! Gene Quill was always one of the crisper, tighter alto talents of the time, and he's ably paired here with a young Phil Woods – an equally crisp player at this point in his career, working alongside Quill in a wonderfully sharp sound! The group's a small combo, and seems to have a slightly looser, more relaxed feel than some other RCA assemblages of the time – a mode that really just lets the two lead saxophonists focus on sharing the heads, then breaking out solos – blowing with a bit less of the tightly arranged style that often showed up on the label. Players include Sol Schlinger on baritone, Dave McKenna on piano, Buddy Jones on bass, and Shadow Wilson on drums – and tracks include "Rib Roast", "Pottsville USA", "Frank The Barber", "Twin Funkies", and "Una Momento".

The second chapter of Erykah Badu's New Amerykah – recorded for the most part, quite incredibly, during the same period and with the same collaborators as the mind-altering, murky and righteous hip hop funk experimentalism that was Part One – some months that must be among the most dizzyingly creative in Badu's career! We're reluctant to call Return Of The The Ankh a lighter listen than its predecessor, but, it's a less dense and outwardly experimental batch in the sonic realm – the emotionalism and the head nodding warmth is at the forefront, yet she's as uncompromising and real as ever. The sound is still innovative, unique and her own on all fronts, but the songs chosen for Part Two are ones you want to approach and embrace from the opening seconds – there's not as much of a tripped out overall vibe and you don't need to acclimate from a distance – these songs pull you right in! Includes collaborations with James Poyser, Shafiq Husayn, Ta'Raach, Karriem Riggins, Madlib and Georgia Anne Muldrow.

Atlantic/Expansion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Two massive records from Ray Barretto – both from a time when he was really opening up his groove! Eye Of The Beholder is a really wonderful album from Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, and add in some of their instrumental help as well – which helps Ray find this bouncy, sometimes funky sort of groove – a sublime blend of LA fusion and New York Latin! There's still loads of great percussion from Barretto – but the set also has some wicked keyboards, guitar, and lots of jazzy inflections too. Titles include the killer cut "Here We Go Again" – a great midtempo number with a perfect steppers groove – plus the cuts "Tumbao Africano", "Leti", and "Expresso". Can You Feel It offers sweet sounds from the days when Fania Records was one of the greatest things going on the New York scene – and some of its key artists got a chance to work for other labels! This set's one of the best examples of that moment – as Ray Barretto steps out here in some sweet soulful territory for Atlantic Records – on an album that mixes his Latin roots with warmer soul backings that have the same sort of full, rich sound of the best Atlantic R&B of the time. Ray's conga is still part of the sound – especially on the funkier cuts – but the album's also got some strong soul vocals, too – sung by Prince Phillip Mitchell on one of the album's best cuts, and by Cissy Houston and Googie Coppola on a few others. Tracks include "Sting Ray", "Can You Feel It", "What Part Of Heaven Do You Come From", "Stargazer", and "Confrontation". CD

George BraithMusart ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". CD

Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around – especially as his music moved into the 70s – but here, he really takes off with some sublime disco arrangements – full clubby grooves that are some of the best Salsoul sounds of the time, yet which still leave plenty of room for Candi's congas! The congas participate in the rhythms at every level – and often take on a nice solo spotlight too – and all tracks are nice and long, with killers that include a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". CD features a massive amount of bonus tracks – more than on the album – with gems from singles that include "Jingo (original 12" version)", "Thousand Finger Man (12" ext version)", "Jingo (Shep Pettibone mix)", "Thousand Finger Man (single)", "Jingo (single)", and "Jingo (inst)".

CandidoThousand Finger Man ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $38.99
Stone lost Latin funk! This one's Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train".

Gene ClarkTwo Sides To Every Story (deluxe edition) ... CD
High Moon/RSO, 1977. New Copy ... $25.99
Gene Clark's excellent late 70s record for RSO – and honestly, one of the greatest major label country rock records of the later 70s – as unjustly overlooked as anything Gene's ever done! After the legendarily ambitious commercial failure of the preceding No Other album, which came out a long 3 years before this one, the modus operandi here seems to be to make a great, unfussy and unpretentious batch of timeless, rustic grooves – albeit with excellent craft behind it. It's that, and it's so damn good! It's got soulful acoustic songcraft and rave-up honky tonkers alike – with Gene's voice a perfect balance of sweetness and grit – and it features a hell of a roster of guest players that includes Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Emmylou Harris, Doug Dillard and Al Perkins. Titles include "Home Run King", "Lonely Saturday", an amazing version of "In The Pines", "Kansas City Southern", "Give My Love To Marie", "Marylou", "Sister Moon", "Silent Crusade" and more. CD

Country Joe & The FishI Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die (mono & stereo versions) ... CD
Vanguard (UK), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Country Joe & The Fish – an insane blend of politics, psychedelia, rock roots, and more – all wrapped up in a nice of carnival-esque style that really lives up to the group's name! Many folks later copied the group – and others, like The Fugs, worked in somewhat similar territory – yet there's a really special sound to the group on this early set, a balance that brings more focus to otherwise trippy moments, more sense to their political agenda, and these sharp instrumental inflections that really send the whole thing home. Blues historian Samuel Charters produced, giving the record another influential quality – and titles include "The Fish Cheer & I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die-Rag", "Who Am I", "Pat's Song", "Magoo", "Jam", "Eastern Song", and "Colors For Susan". 2CD set features the full album in both mono and stereo, plus bonus tracks "Janis" and an alternate take of "I Feel Like I'm Fixin To Die Rag". Great notes too! CD

One of the hippest, tightest albums ever from Randy Crawford – a set that's got a great blend of jazz, funk, and soul – all with the kind of poise and polish she brought to her famous work with The Crusaders! Crawford's wonderful vocals are wrapped up perfectly in some cool combo backings which are then augmented by larger strings – a blend that's got a great sort of richness right from the start, but also that special late 70s LA style that never has things getting too soppy or commercial, even when tight. Randy's the perfect sort of singer to make a record like this come out right – and titles include "I Can't Get You Off My Mind", "Over My Head", "Single Woman Married Man", "Half Steppin", "This Man", and "At Last".

Warner/Varese, 1981. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
One of the coolest soundtracks ever for a Burt Reynolds film – and a hip mix of soul and jazz tracks that's gone onto become a classic over the years! The album's a compilation of sorts, but most of the material was recorded fresh for the film – and the different artists really work together here to forge some great backdrops for the action on the screen! Al Capps handled the larger charts, but most numbers really spotlight an individual artist – and highlights include Randy Crawford singing a new version of "Street Life" – different than the one with The Crusaders – Sarah Vaughan singing "Love Theme From Sharky's Machine", Peggy Lee vocals on "Let's Keep Dancing", and Julie London singing "My Funny Valentine" – as one of the first recordings after many years of retirement. Other great numbers include "Dope Bust" by Flora Purim & Buddy DeFranco, "Sharky's Theme" by Eddie Harris, "Before You" by Sarah Vaughan & Joe Williams, "8 To 5 I Lose" by Joe Williams, and the instrumental cuts "Sexercise" and "High Energy" by Doc Severinsen.

New CrusadersCrusaders 1 ... LP
Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Sweet funky Crusaders – one of the first records the group made after dropping the "Jazz" from their name, and a soulful electric set through and through! The group still have that tightly-crafted soul jazz sound that made their late 60s recordings so great – but they're also stretching out here in more of a 70s electric funk mode – letting the keyboards of Joe Sample really set the tone for most of the numbers, as Wilton Felder's basslines weave with the drums of Stix Hooper to create a set of really great tracks. The double-length album is overflowing with great numbers – and in addition to the contributions of the core quartet, the album also features guitar from Larry Carlton, David T Walker, and Arthur Adams – plus a bit of extra bass from Chuck Rainey! The hip sound is a bit like some of Hugh Masekela's best jazz-based work for Chisa – and titles include "Full Moon", "Sweet Revival", "Mud Hole", "It's Just Gotta Be That Way", "Three Children", "Mosadi", and "So Far Away".

Chisa/Verve, 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Great work from one of the funkiest periods in the career of the Jazz Crusaders – that point when they first dropped the "jazz" from their name, and started moving into groovier territory! The set's a bit electric, but never as much so as their later, bigger hits – just enough so that the basslines bump the tunes along strongly, and the keyboards start to sparkle in the mix too – but still leaving plenty of space for acoustic contributions on piano, trombone, and tenor. Arthur Adams joins the group for a bit of guitar, which is well-placed – and titles include the massive "Pass The Plate" medley, which runs for over 15 minutes – plus "Young Rabbits 71/72", "Goin' Down South", "Listen & You'll See", "Greasy Spoon", and "Treat Me Like Ya Treat Yaself".

One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely Dan album – no surprise, given the work they'd done on sessions for that group – and the title cut is the massive extended version of "Street Life", with killer vocals from Randy Crawford – and other titles include "My Lady", "Night Faces", "The Hustler", and "Rodeo Drive".

Sonodisc/Creole Stream (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
Maybe the funkiest albums ever from Marius Cultier – and definitely one of the records that perfectly shows off his wonderful post-colonial blend of sounds! There's bits of funk from both sides of the Atlantic going on here – roots in both Africa and the Caribbean, but fused through that new sense of freedom that an artist like Cultier found on the Parisian scene – where he could also explore some jazzier inspirations, and move the grooves into so many great areas! The album's got a wonderful vibe – a sound that appeals both to lovers of global funk from the 70s, and sweet fusion as well – thanks to some great work on Fender Rhodes and vibes by Cultier. Titles include "Sousaki", "Ouelele", "Missie Sirop", "Laini", "Ni Tellement Longtemps", and "Mazouk Souvenir". CD

Sony (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... $22.99
Wonderful stuff – a set that represents a real maturation for Vanessa Da Mata – a stronger link to Brazilian tradition than before, yet still with a vibe that hanks onto the contemporary energy that's always made us love her records! As the title indicates, the set's a batch of classic compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim – sung by Da Mata in this gently flowing style that's mighty nice – and set to arrangements by Deodato that really have an old-school mode – but not some sort of sleepy retro-bossa, or bossa-remix – instead that kind of airy space that Deodato first helped pioneer back in the 60s, and which sparkles even more here from his own lead work on acoustic piano! The balance is great, and Vanessa really rises to the top in the setting – on titles that include "Fotografia", "Wave", "Correnteza", "Estrada Do Sol", "Sabia", "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Chovendo Na Roseira", "Por Causa De Voce", and "So Danco Samba".

DeodatoKnights Of Fantasy ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Smooth jazzy work from Deodato – a record that takes off from his electric keyboard work of the early 70s, and shows his growing interest in modern soul and R&B a the time! Deodato's still a few years way from some of his famous soul production work, but he's already got a great ear for a groove – and works in a style that's tight, but never too slick – the best Joe Sample or Crusaders territory, but even more groove oriented too. You can definitely hear Deodato's growing taste for modern soul here – especially on the seminal club jammer "Whistle Bump", which is a tight keyboard-driven groove, with some sweeping strings underneath wah wah guitar. The cut's the real standout on the album – although there's a few other nice moments, like "Space Dust" and "Lovely Lady", which has a great mellow Bob James-ish sound. CD

A sweet blend of west coast jazz and Brazilian rhythms – and one of our favorite records ever from trombonist Raul De Souza! The session's got a more soulful, jazzy feel than some of Raul's other dates from the 70s – not nearly as tight as his sets for Capitol, with an earthy undercurrent in the music, thanks to the production efforts of Airto, who spearheads the session. Horns are by JJ Johnson, with some slight echoes of his soul soundtrack work of the period – and other players include Ted Lo on keyboards, Richard Davis on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – plus a bit of guest alto sax from Cannonball Adderley on a few tunes. Titles include "Water Buffalo", "Dr Honoris Causa", "Canto De Ossahna", "Nana", "Festival", and "Chants To Burn". CD

Nice album of baroque soul from this Chicago diva.

Richard Evans did the arrangements, and the whole thing is a great relic of the kind of highbrow direction that some of the Chicago soul scene was taking at the time. Includes "Wild Is Love", "Hundreds & Thousands Of Guys", "Tell Her In The Morning", "Beggar For The Blues", "In Love Again" and "Stay With It". LP, Vinyl record album

A recent album from the legendary George Duke, and a great one too – put together with a sense of soul and sound that really recalls some of Duke's best work of the late 70s! The album's got a wonderful balance between electric and acoustic elements – especially at points when George puts the keyboards aside, and steps out on acoustic piano – creating lines that ring out proudly amidst the warm backdrops of the group. George also handles some Fender Rhodes on the record, with a very old school vibe – and in addition to his own lead vocals, the set also features backups from Eric Benet, Howard Hewett, Jim Gilstrap, and Rachelle Ferrell. Titles include a sweet remake of "Superwoman", plus "No One", "T-jam", "Sausalito", "Saturday Night", "Hybrids", "Homeland", and "Trust". CD

George DukePrimal George Duke ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1966. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Quite possibly the earliest record to ever feature pianist George Duke as a leader – and a set that's very different than his better-known work of the 70s! At first glance, the album appears to be a straight jazz outing, with Duke on acoustic piano – yet as we've come to expect from George, there's also a really unique twist – a sense of sound that's already reaching out way beyond the obvious, in soulful styles that really make the record a smoker! The quartet features some unique bass trumpet work from David Simmons – whose instrument has the depth of a trombone, but the pointedness of a trumpet – a great combination with the well-crafted basslines from John Heard, and the snappingly syncopated drumming of George Walker – who really makes the record cook with his rhythms – bringing in some great stepping styles that keep things swinging throughout! The arrangements are handled by Duke, who's clearly got a great ear for a groove even at this early age – bringing some 60s soul jazz magic to cuts that include a groovy cover of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine", plus "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Secret Love", "The Second Time Around", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes".

A wonderful session from pianist Orrin Evans – one of the most richly talented players of his generation – always great, no matter what the setting! We've recently dug Evans in trio and larger group formats – but this set's got him cooking strongly with a quintet – a tight lineup that has Sean Jones on trumpet and JD Allen on tenor – but each dropping out a bit near the end to let Evans showcase his trio as well! The horns hold sway on most of the record, though – including the wonderful Liberation Blues Suite – which is penned for Dwayne Burno, and features both his own music and tunes by Evans as well. The set continues with great sounds that really forward the righteous vibe – and titles include "A Free Man", "Liberation Blues", "Juanita", "Devil Eyes", "Simply Green", "Anysha", "Meant To Shine", and "Mumbo Jumbo". Also includes a bonus encore – "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", with vocals by Joanna Pascale. CD
