Robbie BashoVenus In Cancer (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $14.99
Spacey fingerstyle guitar meanderings from Robbie Basho – a contemporary of John Fahey who helped create the genre of tripped out, open tuning excursions! This album was recorded after Basho's early work for the Takoma label, and it's got a bit less Native American imagery than before – replaced with more of a sense of Eastern mysticism for inspiration that also features some vocals alongside the guitar! Titles include "Venus In Cancer", "Eagle Sails The Blue Diamond Waters", "Kowaka D'Amour", "Song For The Queen", "Cathedrals Et Fleur De Lis" and "Wine Song (Sweet Wine Of Love)".

Dengue FeverVenus On Earth (plus download card) ... LP
M80 Music, 2008. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Moody, kind of sultry and pulpy Cambodian rock, LA style – perhaps the best record yet from Dengue Fever! The backdrop of keys, horns, guitars, percussion and bass has never sound as measured, loose and assured as it does on Venus On Earth – with Chhom Nimol reminding us of the sweetness out front of the raucous, exuberant sounds of 60s underground Cambodian rock, and living up to that legacy quite well! Titles include "Seeing Hands", "Clipped Wings", "Tigher Phone Card", "Sober Driver", "Monsoon Of Perfume", "Integration", "Oceans Of Venus", "Tooth And Nail" and "Mr Orange". LP, Vinyl record album

David HazeltinePearls (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2000. Used .... $19.99
Pearls from the past, recast nicely by the swinging sounds of pianist David Hazeltine – who also brings a few of his own tunes to the set too! The groove here is surprisingly great – especially considering the classical look of the cover – but that's definitely what we'd expect with Peter Washington on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – both players who can really match the bold bursts of energy from Hazeltine's hands on the keyboard. Titles include the originals "Pearls" and "His Lordship" – plus versions of "My Old Flame", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Somewhere", and "Darn That Dream". CD

Barney WilenPassione ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1995. Used .... $19.99
A great little set from Barney Wilen's late revival period – strong, solid blowing all the way through – with a depth that almost matches his classics from the early days! The group here is a quintet – with Enrico Rava on trumpet in the frontline alongside Wilen's tenor and soprano sax – often joining Barney tightly on the head arrangements, in a mode that's strongly soulful, with plenty of classic touches. Many of the tunes are familiar jazz standards, but stretched out nicely with lots of room to roam around – and a few great numbers on the set are of European origin, shorter, but with some wonderful colors and tones that Wilen illuminates with his horn – and which the group plays with a slightly Latin flair in the rhythms. Titles include "Jitterbug Waltz", "My Ship", "Estate", "Line For Lyons", "Begonia", "Passione", "Bella Chao", "Al Herraz", and "Besame Mucho". CD

New Eric AlexanderBlues At Midnight ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2013. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive work from tenorist Eric Alexander – a player who never lets us down, and who always manages to sound extra great on expensive Japanese-only sessions like this! The album's got a clear, simple focus that really sums up the classic tone and timing that Alexander brings to his tenor – a style that has him handling the horn at a level that's certainly timeless, but instantly fresh too – that crisp sense of creativity you get when hearing a rare top-shelf jazzman at his best! Of course, the rhythm section does plenty to help Eric find the right space – the perfect trio of Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – all recorded in a way so that the tones of the tunes are incredibly deep and richly soulful. Titles include "Is It You", "Sayonara Blues", "Hittin The Jug", "Dis Here", "Edward Lee", and "Dance With Me". CD

New Eddie AllenRemembrance ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Eddie Allen was a relatively young trumpeter at the time of this date – but he's got some very solid grounding from a mature trio that features Kenny Barron on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Carl Allen on drums! On another label, like Muse, the set might have a rougher sort of feel – but here, on Venus, it comes across with a nice degree of focus and class – never too overly thought-out, but still with a direction that really works well for Allen's soulful trumpet and flugelhorn lines. Titles include "Remembrance", "Baptized In The Fire", "It's The Nights I Like", "Nudge", and "The Spoiler". CD

DeodatoDeodato 2 ... CD
CTI, 1973. New Copy .... $5.99 6.99
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – a sublime electric piano groove that's quite different than anything Deodato recorded before – and possibly never realized this perfectly again after his CTI years. Other players include Stanley Clarke on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, and Hubert Laws on flute – and titles include the massive Latin funk track "Super Strut", plus the tunes "Pavane For A Dead Princess", "Skyscrapers", and a great version of "Nights In White Satin". Plus, this CD reissue features 3 bonus tracks – "Venus", "Do It Again", and "Latin Flute"! CD

Rob Mazurek Pulsar QuartetStellar Pulsations ... LP
Delmark, 2012. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
One of the most striking records so far from the mighty Rob Mazurek – a set that makes us more than glad we've been following his musical journey for the past two decades! The set's got a nicely compressed feel – one that takes some of the looser energy that's been bubbling up in recent Mazurek records, and delivers it in a tight quartet format – with Rob's sparkling cornet in the lead, amidst great piano from Angelica Sanchez, bass from Matt Lux, and drums from John Herndon! Given the wide resumes of all players, there's a really shifting sense of sound here – one that's bold one minute, introspective the next – and never falls into too-familiar jazz phrasing modes. Yet Mazurek's also really matured as a player, too – working here with a sensitivity we never would have expected years ago – captured with great clarity in the recording. Titles include "Magic Saturn", "Twister Uranus", "Spanish Venus", "Folk Song Neptune", "Primitvie Jupiter" and "Spiral Mercury". LP, Vinyl record album

PhreekPatrick Adams Presents Phreek (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy .... $12.99
One of the biggest 70s moments from underground club maestro Patrick Adams – an amazing talent who's best known for his work on his own P&P family of record labels – but who steps out here with an even tighter sound! The album's brimming with the sorts of sweet moogy touches that Adams always brought to his work – that heavy use of cosmic keyboards that's continued to have a huge influence for years to come. But in addition to the spacey disco grooves on the bottom, the set's also got some great vocal help too – as Patrick brings in some heavy talents from the underground – including Leroy Burgess, Venus Dodson, and Donna McGhee – all of whom add a heck of a lot to the set! Titles include the seminal club track "Weekend", plus "I'm A Big Freak", "Have A Good Day", "Everybody Loves A Good Thing", "May My Love Be With You" and "Much Too Much". CD

Sun RaInterstellar Low Ways ... LP
Saturn, 1959/1967. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Late 60's issue of a record that's also known as Rocket Number Nine Take Off For The Planet Venus. The material was recorded in 1959 and 1960, but unissued until the mid 60's. Ra plays piano, chimes, and gong, and the tracks have a nice laid back spacey feel, with some ensemble vocals chanted by the group. Ronnie Boykins also plays the space gong on one cut, which sounds very nice. Cuts include "Somewhere In Space", "Space Loneliness", "Space Aura", and "Interplanetary Music". The cover's got a brilliant red and white drawing of volcanic land, piano keys floating in space, and a mysterious female figure in flames! LP, Vinyl record album

Science Fiction Corporation (Ackermann & Thusek)Science Fiction Dance Party – Dance With Action (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Finders Keepers/B- Music (UK), 1971. Used .... $9.99
A really amazing record – even more incredible than you might guess from the cover and title! The whole thing's definitely a "party" in sound – as the record takes lots of familiar instrumentation and mixes it with odd sound effects and weird production tricks – creating a space age vibe that's totally incredible, and pretty darn groovy as well! Things are very upbeat, and playful – and the whole thing's got a feel that's very similar to some of the late 60s sci fi grooves of Peter Thomas, most notably his excellent Raumpatrouille soundtrack. Organ mixes with fuzzy guitar, electronics, rattling percussion, and heavy basslines – then the whole thing's layered with lots and lots of echo and studio tricks – with occasional spoken or sung vocals that heighten the mood of the tunes, yet still leave things in a mostly instrumental mode. Most tracks are pretty darn funky – in an offbeat way – and the sound of the whole thing is completely mindblowing – handled by the same guys who did the Vampires Of Dartmoor record! Titles include "Visitors Of AD 2022", "The End Of A Robot", "Flirtation On Venus", "Dance On Mars", "Man Out Of A Test Tube", "Death Rays Out Of The Universe", and "The Whistling Astronaut". Also includes 4 bonus tracks – "Racing Motion", "Industry Computer", "Soul El Juma", and "In A Siamese Temple". CD

TelevisionMarquee Moon (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Elektra, 1977. New Copy (reissue).... $22.99 24.99
The masterful debut of Television! Marquee Moon is indisputably one of best records to come out of late 70s NYC . It's truly a singular achievement – one of the few records that seems to be on every rock literati's list of the all-time-bests – and actually deserves every bit of praise it gets! The guitars and vocals are bristling with all the post-punk energy of the lower east side in the 70s – but stands out for the off kilter melodicism and the extraordinary guitar heroism, courtesy Tom Verlaine. A genuine classic! Includes "See No Evil", "Venus", "Friction", "Marquee Moon", "Elevation", "Guiding Light", "Prove It" and "Torn Curtain". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe ThomasFeelin's From Within ... CD
Groove Merchant/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy .... $28.99
The Ebony Godfather is grooving here with a set of fuller backings – sweet clubby funk, arranged and conducted by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame) – all as a showcase for Joe's sweet work on flute and tenor sax! There's a fair bit of keyboards on the tunes – played by Pat Rebillot and Barry Miles – and Steve Gadd's playing the drums on the date, which helps the rhythms keep a bit of an edge, even amidst the larger backing. Some cuts have backing chorus vocals, in a style used on other Thomas albums – and although definitely touched by a bit of disco fever, the album's still got a jazzy element too – like some of the crossover club sessions on the Kudu label from the 70s! Titles include "Funky Fever", "Feelins From Within", "Polarizer", "Coco", "Galaxy Dreamin", and "Venus". CD

VariousCatacombs – Temple Street, Wolverhampton 1968 to 1974 – The Original Sound Of Northern Soul, Popcorn & R&B ... CD
Charly (UK), 1960s. New Copy .... $12.99 13.98
Sublime 60s soul singles – upbeat, grooving, and brought together in support of legendary UK club The Catacombs – an early hotbed for the Northern Soul scene! The package is heavy on notes and images from the club – but even if you've never set foot in the UK, or on a dancefloor, you'll still find plenty here to love – a searing batch of 28 gems from the late 60s – most of them pretty darn rare, and usually with an edge that's a lot rawer than mainstream work of the time! The Catacombs seemed to pick the cuts that still held onto some of the sharper qualities of the earliest years of soul – less smooth groovers and more gritty tracks that really make this batch stand out. Titles include "Try A Little Harder" by The Fi-Dels, "What Is This" by Bobby Womack, "Suffering City" by Johnny & Lilly, "Psychedelic Soul" by Saxie Russell, "Do Me Like You Do Me" by John Williams & The Tick Tocks, "The Wrong Girl" by The Showmen, "Every Beat Of My Heart" by The Du-Ettes, "Michael" by The CODs, "Chinatown" by Victor Knight, "House Of Heartaches" by The Neptunes, "Love Time" by Kelly Brothers, "I've Got To Have Your Love" by Mill Evans, "The Touch Of Venus" by Sandy Wynns, "If You Ask Me" by Jerry Williams, and "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs.

Suzanne CianiSeven Waves ... LP
Bird (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
A rare Japanese-only album from electronic musician Suzanne Ciani – originally issued in the early 80s, and composed on a host of instruments that no longer exist! The set's got a spare, ethereal sound – one that's arguably warmer than Ciani's more dramatic experiments from the start of the 70s, yet still much more striking than any of her later new age sides too – with an electronic vibe that's right up there with some of the best German or French soundtrack albums of this nature from the time – kind of post-Cluster, post-Tangerine Dream material – with shorter tunes and a great melodic focus! Most sounds come from Suzanne's keyboards, but the set features a bit of added instrumentation from time to time – although still in a way that's relatively spare overall. Titles include "Sirens", "Love In The Waves", "Wind In The Sea", "Sailing Away", "Water Lullaby", and "Birth Of Venus". LP, Vinyl record album

The rare and originally Japanese-only Seven Waves album from electronic musician Suzanne Ciani – plus her even rarer Voices Of Packaged Souls from 12 years earlier – together in a single set from Bird/Finders Keepers! Seven Waves was originally issued in the early 80s, and composed on a host of instruments that no longer exist! It's got a spare, ethereal sound – with an electronic vibe that's right up there with some of the best German or French soundtrack albums of this nature from the time – kind of post-Cluster, post-Tangerine Dream material – with shorter tunes and a great melodic focus! Titles include "Sirens", "Love In The Waves", "Wind In The Sea", "Sailing Away", "Water Lullaby", and "Birth Of Venus". Voices Of Packaged Souls is one of the first-ever albums to feature the music of Suzanne Ciani – and one of the wildest, too! The set was originally pressed up in a tiny 50 copy run – as part of an art exhibit in Brussels to feature a sound sculpture collaboration between Ciani and another artist – filled with loads of weird, wild, offbeat electronics by Suzanne – including some cool processed vocal passages, and loads of spare, stark sounds that work together as a beautiful collage – moving from noise to notes to noise and back again! This is the first time the Voices Of Packaged Souls material has ever appeared on CD – and the titles include "Sound Of Heat", "Sound Of Wetness", "Sound Of Love Turning", "Sound Of A Lighted Window", "Sound Of A Dream Kissing", "And All Dreams Are Not For Sale" and many more.

New Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 1997 to 2000 ... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2000. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from one of the most important production teams of recent times! Jazzanova have sharply defined the modern European taste for Brazilian and Latin-inflected grooves on the dancefloor – beginning in the mid 90s with work for the (then) new Compost Records imprint, and working up to present days with countless remix efforts for other artists. Sadly, Jazzanova have yet to cut an album of their own work – and this double-length set is probably the best full way to experience their rich talents. It features 20 tracks in all, many with a strong Brazilian or bossa flavor, and most with a tight dancefloor approach to jazz. Titles include "We Who Are Not As Others" by 4 Hero, "Soul Power" by Marcshmellows, "Carajillo" by Truby Trio, "Get Into My Groove" by Incognito, "Amazon Adventure" by Azymuth, "Words Of Love" by Soul Bossa Trio, "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group, "Planet Of Breaks" by Visit Venus, "Burnin" by Tate's Place, "Toda Tersafeira" by Soul Quality Quartet, "Circe" by Ursula Rucker, "Fifths" by Ski, and "Complete Life" by Liquid Lounge – all remixed by Jazzanova!

Leandre's got a very lyrical, spiritual tone to her instrument – but also lots of sharp edges too – and she really brings out some fresh sounds from Mitchell, who continues to be one of the most expressive, inspirational musicians in the current generation of jazz!

Mayo's voice and skewed songcraft are front and center, though there's piano, organ, fiddle, slide guitar, bass and drums coming in and out, too, but whether or not it was forthright goal, Mayo's weird lyricism is the star of the show, and you can hear the influence this record had on myriad underground rock figures in the decades that followed!

Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties".

The tunes are a nice mix of some of the best Ethio styles of the early 70s – and include a few standout funky numbers, plus some equally great tunes that mix jazzy styles with lots of exotic twists and turns! And there's something about the vinyl presentation that makes the music feel a bit different than on CD – a bit more urgent, perhaps – and with a crispness to the sound that's mighty nice. Titles include "Bey Lesenabetesh" by Getatchew Kassa, "Wefe Yelala" by Damtew Ayele, "Ber Anbar Seberelewo" by Tamrat Molla & Venus Band, "Lebene Sheweshew" by Samuel Beley, "Assiyo Belleme" by Mulatu, and "Yekermo Sew" by Sefou Yohannes.

Philips/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Heavy drums, and some great grooves throughout – a wonderful album from percussionist Wilson Das Neves, and maybe his best record ever! The album's more funk than the samba in the title – although the best numbers have a little bit of both – almost an instrumental take on the same territory as Jorge Ben at the end of the 60s, with wickedly riffing guitar and some nicely heavy drums. The lineup is an all-star one – Dom Salvador on piano, Ze Roberto on organ, and trombone from Ed Maciel – and the arrangements are handled by Erlon Chaves, with the same funky approach as his own great music! There's loads of great originals on the record – including "Essa Moca Ta Diferente", "Sarro", "Repouso", and "Bebete Vao Bora" – plus versions of cuts like "Venus", "Evil Ways", and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", all done as groovy instrumentals.

The legendary David Durrah plays piano on two tracks – his own "Waltz for "Boobuss" and "Venus Fly Trap" – and the Sisters Happiness sing vocals on the latter cut, too. Other titles include "Blue Lights", "Soft Spirit", and a version of Chick Corea's "What Was". CD

Every cut is a winner, and titles include "Venus Di Mildew", "The Morning After", and "Ace Duce Trey". Fantastic material all the way through, with tracks that will stay in your head for years – and one of the greatest jazz album covers ever! LP, Vinyl record album
