Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, & William ParkerBlue Winter ... CD
Eremite, 2005. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 19.99
A beautiful tribute to the strengths of these players working together in a trio – the sense of respect and patience they each have for each other – letting the sound come at just the right moment in just the right way, as things build together in this amazing way – then leap forth with a power that's even more incredible when all three musicians fall into step! Anderson's tenor gets lots of rich open space to roam around – with these deep tones that strongly echo a Coltrane legacy, almost more soulfully than other albums of this vintage – and Parker's bass is wonderful, as always, in a setting like this – and Drake's drums are a masterpiece of understatement. The set features four long improvisations – recorded live in a very warm space. CD

New Gil Scott-HeronWinter In America ... LP
Strata East, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
A beautiful jazzy classic, and perhaps Gil Scott-Heron's most perfectly realized album ever! The record has a completely sophisticated jazzy approach – one that's miles ahead from even Gil's previous work on Flying Dutchman, and which shows him to be one of the most distinctive and emotive vocalists in soul and jazz over the past 25 years. The album contains the monster dancefloor track "The Bottle", which went on to be a huge hit in many versions – but it's also got loads of gentle, fragile songs (the kind of work by Gil that we like the best, and which show him as a deeply emotional and complicated artist, with a richness that still yearns to be tapped fully. Classics include "Peace Go With You Brother" and the original version of "Your Daddy Loves You". LP, Vinyl record album

The legendary producer Andrew Loog Oldham graces the cover spot of this issue of Ugly Things – and is followed up by a great feature inside! But even more interesting is the tale of Craig Smith – easy ly one of the most insane journeys in music we've ever read! The story is exactly what makes Ugly Things so great – and it's followed here in a very heavy issue with articles on The Dream, The Haunted, Manzanita Jungle, and Billy & The Conquerors – plus a great San Francisco Beat column, and lots of news on reissues too. 184 pages, with lots of great photos – and more of a book than a magazine!

Ugly Things, 2012. New Copy ... $8.99 9.95
One of the heaviest magazines on music you'll ever buy – not just for the hefty page count, but for the content as well! Articles are great – very interesting, in-depth tales of the 60s/70s underground – with features on The Haunted, The Others, The Bees, The Spike-Drivers, Jenny & The Rascals, Blue Aces, and others – and cool little features on unusual sounds from unusual scenes too! This time around, Ugly Things clocks in at almost 200 pages – already a lot in itself, but when you consider that the publication's got a lot less ads than most, and uses relatively small type – you'll realize you're getting quite a deal! Loads of black and white photos and images – and a heck of a great read. Magazine

Ariel S WinterTwenty Year Death (Malniveau Prison/The Falling Star/Police At The Funeral) ... Book
Hard Case Crime (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $3.99 14.95
A wonderful debut novel from crime writer Ariel Winter – one that's actually written as three separate books – each set a decade apart, but tied together overall! The scope of time and space rivals that of James Ellroy, but with a much more down to earth approach – as the books move between France in 1931, Hollywood in 1941, and Maryland in 1951! This massive volume brings all three books together (Hard Case originally issued them singly) – Malniveau Prison, The Falling Star, and Police At The Funeral – in a heavy volume that's over 600 pages, but will have you turning the pages at rapid speed.

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest Christmas compilations we've heard in years – an ultra-cool, ultra-rare batch of tunes all hand-picked by St Etienne – with the best sort of vibe of their previous non-seasonal compilations! The material here is mostly British in origin, and almost all of it is completely new to our ears – a fab array of 50s and 60s tunes that include vocal numbers, jazzy bits, and instrumental pop – with lots of fresh songs that aren't just the usual batch of Holiday favorites! There's two dozen songs on the set – which makes for some great extended listening – and titles include "It's Christmas" by Elaine & Derek, "Must Be Santa" by Alma Cogan, "Snowman's Land" by Zack Laurence, "Christmas Time In London Town" by Nina & Frederick, "Christmas Island" by Dickie Valentine, "Get Lost Jack Frost" by John Barry Seven, "My Christmas Prayer" by Billy Fury, "Snow Coach" by Russ Conway, "Christmas Land" by Wally Whyton, "Lonely Pup" by Adam Faith, and "We Three Kings" by Johnny Keating.

Columbia, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Even though Paul Winter's always been a little bit of a phony, this bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". LP, Vinyl record album

The first full album recorded by A Certain Ratio – and a mad mix of styles that's immediately compelling! The group are a key link here in so many traditions – British punk, 70s funk, dub, and late prog – all coming together under the godlike production talents of Martin Hannett to make the album one of the gleaming jewels in the crown of the young Factory Records label. There's never been a record of such scattered, skittish darkness – and even though short songs like "The Fox", "Forced Laugh", "Felch", "My Spirit", and "Loss" are arresting, the whole thing's magnificently capped off by the extended percussion jam "Winter Hill" – a tune that sounds like a batucada group trying to drum their way across a post-apocalyptic landscape!

Intimate piano work from Geri Allen – a set of solo performances, inspired by the music of Cecil Taylor, McCoy Tyner, and Herbie Hancock! There's definitely strong traces of Tyner and Hancock – given Allen's usually soulful undercurrent – but there's also a heavy dose of Taylor, too, as Geri really uses the freer space of the recording to stretch out in some pretty unbridled ways – really surprising us with her inventiveness, and still usually holding onto a rhythmic pulse somewhere deep in the mix. Titles include "Red Velvet In Winter", "Dancing Mystic Poets At Midnight", "Your Pure Self", "Flying Toward The Sound", and "Faith Carriers Of Life". CD

Killer Christmas work from Tony Bennett – a set recorded in the 60s, but a classic that endures strongly over the years! Tony's vocals are superb here – that nicely matured style that's kept him in front of younger ears over the years – and the backings are somewhat traditional, but never stiff or cliched. Robert Farnon adds in some strings and chorus bits at times, but some of the best cuts have a jazzier flavor – and even the fuller-styled numbers fall back nicely to let Bennett's vocals dominate up front. Titles include "Christmasland", "I Love The Winter Weather/I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm", "Winter Wonderland", "Snowfall", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", "My Favorite Things", and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas".

New Ran Blake feat Houston PersonSuffield Gothic ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1984. Used ... $9.99
An unlikely pairing, but a great one too – quite an unusual chapter in the career of pianist Ran Blake – but in a way, a great set to unlock the soulful undercurrents that have always been in his music! About half the tracks feature the tenor of Houston Person joining in – working these amazing sounds in duets with Ran, and creating this depth of feeling that grabs us right from the start! Given that Person rarely did dates like this too – the set's unusual for him, too – and even when Houston's not on board, Blake's solo lines still have a feeling that's full of soul. Despite the crowd of people on the cover, the album's just a duo/solo outing – and titles include "Indian Winter", "Curtis", "Vanguard", "Old Man River", "Midnight Local To Tate County", "There's Been A Change In My Life", and "Tribute To Mahalia".

The album was recorded at the height of the group's early fame – and features a simple, straightforward groove that features plenty of Hammond from Booker T – plus tight grooves from Steve Cropper on guitar, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Al Jackson on drums – all of whom cook up some Memphis soul instrumental takes on seasonal favorites – in a mode that easily makes the record one of the hippest Christmas sides from the time! The whole thing's great – almost like a lost Booker T album overall – and titles include "Blue Christmas", "We Three Kings", "Winter Wonderland", "Silver Bells", and "Merry Christmas Baby". CD

Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of New York ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Near Mint- ... $6.99
New York's a mighty big place, but it's got a nicely intimate feel in this 60s set from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – one of the combo's overlooked gems from their years on Columbia! The music is all from the TV show Mr Broadway, but there's hardly a showtune feel to the set – and instead, the groove is almost in a hip Henry Mancini sort of mode, but delivered with a smaller combo feel. Tracks are somewhat shorter than the usual Brubeck outing, and balanced nicely between upbeat tracks and more sensitive ones – the former with some well-cut lines by Paul Desmond on alto sax, the latter often with a bit more piano from Dave. The rest of the group includes Gene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums – and titles include "Mr Broadway", "Broadway Bossa Nova", "Sixth Sense", "Something To Sing About", "Spring In Central Park", "Lonely Mr Broadway", "Winter Ballad", "Upstage Rhumba", and "Summer On The Sound".

Floyd CramerFloyd Cramer Plays MacArthur Park/Here's What's Happening ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... $16.99
Two overlooked late 60s gems from Floyd Cramer – both of which show the piano genius reaching out for some new sounds in his style! MacArthur Park has Floyd taking on a hip host of tunes from the late 60s – cool rock and pop numbers that are really transformed strongly in the RCA studio blend of pillowy piano and soft orchestrations from arranger Bill McElhiney! Cramer's got that mellow-stepping groove just right, and it's often matched by these lofting basslines on the bottom – on tunes that include "Our Winter Love", "MacArthur Park", "Don't Give Up", "The Odd Couple", "This Guy's In Love With You", and a great vibes-laden take on "Theme From Rosemary's Baby". Here's What's Happening offers up a take on the sound of the young, served up by easy instrumental maestro Floyd Cramer! The mix of modes is surprisingly great – as the flowing, echoey Cramer piano turns towards tunes from some of the hipper corners of the 60s – rock and pop bits that are balanced with a few more conventional numbers – all set to arrangements by Bill McElhiney that still leave plenty of room for Floyd's work on the keys. Titles include "Almost Persuaded", "Work Song", "Good Vibrations", "Rain On The Roof", "Louie Louie", and "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself". CD

Frank DeVol & The Rainbow StringsOld Sweet Songs Of Christmas ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, 1960. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The sweet strings of Frank DeVol take on a host of Christmas favorites – in a lush instrumental album that really takes us back to the sort of old time tunes our folks used to play around the Holidays! Each selection is a medley of two or three tracks – and DeVol uses string-heavy orchestrations to carve out the melodies with a somber, reverent sort of feel – a mode that's mostly secular in orientation, but has an undercurrent of seasonal spirituality. The record's got a strangely blue sort of feel – almost like the kind of record when you want to put on to have a sad Christmas – and we mean that in a good way! Titles include "Ring Christmas Bells/The First Noel/Jolly Old St Nicholas", "Winter Wonderland/Skater's Waltz", "Silver Bells/Jingle Bells", "The Christmas Song/The Twelve Days Of Christmas", and "Here Comes Santa Claus/March Of The Toys".

Earth OperaGreat American Eagle Tragedy ... LP
Elektra, 1969. Near Mint- (reissue)... $6.99
Excellent work by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – the incredible Earth Opera, a group that tied together many styles into a rich and unique sound! The album came out of the crumbling Boston scene of the late 60s – showing echoes of that city's optimistic folk scene of the earlier part of the decade, sliding into the more introspective musings of the singer/songwriter era. The group was the brainchild of singer/guitarist Peter Rowan, but also featured quite a bit of support from a young David Grisman – playing here on mandolin, piano, and a bit of alto sax. The tracks are folksy, but with lots of jazzy undercurrents – almost in a Tim Buckley mode at times, but with themes that are farther reaching, and often more political. The album's an obvious testament to the downfall of the US – surprisingly resonant in recent years – and features titles that include "Roast Beef Love", "The American Eagle Tragedy", "Home To You", "Alfie Finney", and "All Winter Long".

A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising – and a much-anticipated second project from funk archivist Dante Carfagna! Dante's a name you probably know best from his work writing liner notes or Wax Poetics – and helping out in countless important compilations over the years – but a decade ago, Dante dropped his first mysterious project under the Express Rising name – and finally returns here with a second album! The sound is even more enticing this time around – still drawing a bit from the world of DJ Shadow – a frequent Carfagna collaborator on archive projects – but the sound is also surprisingly warm and lyrical too – bits of beats, layers of older sounds, and these spare keyboard bits all served up together in a style that's really unique – and which avoids any of the cliches of both the downtempo world, and the instrumental hip hop scene The approach is often quite poetic, yet still soulful as well – and the whole thing's got a laidback vibe that's neither sleepy nor muddled – a really sort of special space between the grooves. Titles include "Horse Opera", "Dark Early", "Answering Echo So Near", "Winter The Heart", "A Treasure Smile", "Rooms Between Us", and "Memorabilia". CD

New Stan Getz & Laurindo AlmeidaStan Getz With Laurindo Almeida ... LP
Verve, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

New Dizzy GillespieMelody Lingers On ... LP
Limelight, 1967. Very Good ... $4.99
A great little album of short groovy cuts from Dizzy – and actually quite hard to find on vinyl! Despite a title that sounds a bit flowery, the grooves are nice and hard – and Dizzy's playing here with a combo that includes James Moody, Kenny Barron, Billy Butler, and Candido. The sound isn't as funky as the records that Dizzy would later cut for Perception, but it's getting pretty close at times – especially on the tunes that have a nice Latin soul feel. Titles include "Summer Samba", "Bang Bang", "Mas Que Nada", "Tequila", "Winter Samba", and "Get That Money Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer bit of Latin Soul – one of the few albums ever recorded by conga player George Guzman, working here with a very cool, very hip, late 60s ensemble! The group sport 3 trumpets, piano, bass, and some very strong percussion – plus vocals in both English and Spanish, which makes for a perfect back and forth mood to the set, handling both straight Latin and Latin Soul numbers with ease! Loads of great tracks – including "Diggin' Rice & Beans", "Manteca", "Really Bad Scene", La Banda Ya Llego", and "Winter Love". Nice, tight, and very very groovy. LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie HarrisElectrifying Eddie Harris/Plug Me In ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. Used ... $11.99
It's the late 60s, and Eddie's creating his famous electrified Varitone sound – unique among other soul jazz players in that it actually added a lot to Eddie's work, instead of detracted from it (as with some other boppers who briefly picked up the instrument.) The Varitone's cool flat tone works extremely well with the original tracks on Electrifying Eddie Harris – like the long version of "Listen Here", the groovy "Sham Time", the Latiny "Spanish Bull", or the incredible "Theme In Search Of A Movie", written by the great Chicago soul genius Charles Stepney. The album Plug Me In features Harris along with some fantastic arrangements by Stepney. Stepney's work on the album is amazing, and he contributes incredible touches like prepared piano and funky strings, both of which make the album one of the best that Harris ever did! Titles on the session include "Live Right Now", "It's Crazy", "Winter Meeting", and "Theme In Search Of A TV Commercial". CD

Killer stuff – and an amazing album that not only showcases the varitone sax talents of Eddie Harris, but also features some fantastic arrangements by Chicago soul genius Charles Stepney! Harris plugs in right from the start – blowing an electric sax that comes up with some groovy groovy sounds – perfect for Stepney to work with on the backdrops – mixing together funky orchestrations, off-kilter strings, and even some prepared piano, ala John Cage – similar to the mode he used with Ramsey Lewis at Cadet! Tunes are wonderful – offbeat, funky, and plenty darn soulful – and titles include "Live Right Now", "It's Crazy", "Winter Meeting", and "Theme In Search Of A TV Commercial". LP, Vinyl record album

Wendell HarrisonReawakening ... LP
Rebirth/Tribe, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Later work from reedman Wendell Harrison and the Tribe Records scene – a set that's got a slightly tighter feel than some of his earlier work, but still a relatively soulful vibe overall! Harrison leads the group on tenor, flute, and clarinet – but there's definitely a collective vibe to the music – which also features Harold McKinney on piano, Phil Ranelin on trombone, and Ralph Jones on soprano sax – part of a shifting lineup of artists who change from track to track – including Leon Thomas and Pamela Wise, who each sing a bit on the record. Thomas appears on the great tracks "Where Am I" and "Love Dream", both of which have a great mellow soul jazz vibe – and other cuts get a bit more out, and have more of the soaring spiritualism that got the Tribe scene going in the early 70s. Other titles include "Tons & Tons Of BS", "Winter", and "He's The One We All Knew". LP, Vinyl record album

Hollyridge Strings/Stu PhillipsChristmas Favorites ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Groovy Christmas instrumentals from the great Stu Phillips – one of the most sublime sessions recorded by his studio group at Capitol Records in the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given that they also took on music by The Beatles and Beach Boys! Stu brings a subtle sort of groove to his strings here – mixing the full orchestrations with a well-punctuated sense of rhythm – usually using electric bass right at the bottom of the mix, which steps things along nicely – and also plucking the strings in cool ways too, which creates sort of a link between earlier Mancini moments and later grooves from The Soulful Strings! The tunes are mostly familiar, but re-strung beautifully by Stu – and titles include "Do You Hear What I Hear", "Little Saint Nick", "Jingle Bell Rock", "Santa's Got A Brand New Bag", "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town", "The Christmas Song", and "Winter Wonderland".

ImpressionsKeep On Pushing ... LP
ABC, 1964. Very Good- ... $13.99
There's no need for The Impressions to push from behind – because with a record like this, they're very firmly in the driver's seat! The album's a treasure through and through – one of the greatest documents of 60s soul from the Chicago scene – filled with sublime original compositions by a young Curtis Mayfield, set to great arrangements from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is immaculate – a groove that's slightly stepping, gently lilting – just enough to get things moving, but with plenty of care not to smother the fragile harmonies of the group. And as on other of the best ABC albums by The Impressions, there's not a hint of filler here – just one great track after another, with titles that include "Amen", "I Made A Mistake", "Don't Let It Hide", "Keep On Pushing", "Somebody Help Me", "Long Long Winter", and "I've Been Trying".

Rockadrome, Early 70s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Hard riffing from Scotland's Iron Claw – a group who owe plenty to the best early work of Black Sabbath, but also take off nicely in their own direction as well! The guitar work is frenetic, the bass nice and fuzzy, and there's a sense of darkness that really comes through in the vocals too – a sinister groove that was years ahead of its time, and never got full exposure back in the 70s. This collection brings together the group's rare studio sessions – with titles that include "Clawstrophobia", "Mist Eye", "Sabotage", "Crossrocker", "Skullkrusher", "Let It Grow", "Rock Band Blues", "Lightning", "Knock Em Dead", "Devils", and "Winter".

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 2 – Welcome Home (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
A tremendous second step for Chicago soul legend Walter Jackson – packaged here with a huge amount of bonus tracks as well! The core album is a sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine". Added to the original album are 7 more rare tracks pulled from singles – some of the true gems in Jackson's 60s career for Okeh – with titles that include "Deep In The Heart Of Harlem", "Cold Cold Winter", "That's When I Come To You", "Special Love", "One Heart Lonely", "I Think It's Going To Rain Today", and "The Folks Who Live On The Hill".

Lex, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
Janeiro Jarel and MF Doom – united as JJ Doom – and it's one of the fresher Doom collaborative projects of the past couple years! As unique as MF Doom is on the production tip, we gotta say we dig his joint efforts more when he's on the rhymes and another producer is behind the beats. Of course, the reason is that Doom is even more distinct behind the mic than he is when he wears the production mask. JJ's spacey style pilots most of the tracks on Key To The Kuffs, so Doom is free to drop mad rhymes. There's an impressive guest list, too – which includes Beth Gibbons, Damon Albarn, Indigo, Khujo Goodie and others. Titles include "Waterlogged", "Guv'Nor", "Banished", "Bite The Thong", "Dawg Friendly", "Rhymin Slang", "Winter Blues", "Viberian Sun Pt. II", "Wash Your Hands" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Gunter Kallmann ChoirChristmas Sing-In ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99
A completely charming Christmas album from The Gunter Kallmann Choir – a German group with a sweet easy feel – but working here in English throughout! The ensemble features a mix of male and female vocals – recorded with a sweetly swinging style that's somewhere between the Mike Sammes Singers and Singers Unlimited – although probably a bit hokier than the latter! Arrangements are by Nick Ingman, Mike Vickers, and Bernard Ebbinghouse – who all give the album a bit of a Brit easy groove – and the tunes are all done in medley versions, which means that these guys pack in lots of Holiday magic in a very small space. The album includes bits of "Jingle Bells", "The First Noel", "December Dream", "The Holly & The Ivy", "Winter Wonderland", "The Season Of Winter", "Let It Snow", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "Christmas Alphabet", and many more!

Kanye West808s & Heartbreak ... CD
Roc-A-Fella, 2008. Used ... $3.99
A darkness tinged departure for Kanye West – his electro hip hop soul tome 808s & Heartbreak! Kanye's albums are always newsworthy, but this one divides opinions as sharply as any major release of 2008. That said, we'll go on the record with some real love for this sometimes confounding, often brilliant batch of tracks. Kanye is mostly singing on this one, and brazenly flaunting the Auto-Tune vocal fad to a point in which he's basically daring you to hate on him for it – but the deep, dark and confessional storytelling and mostly downbeat tone of the songs offsets the arch trendiness almost completely. It's an interesting dichotomy, but it it works, giving some fairly morose songs a needed light touch. Ultimately, this is a brave record for Kanye recorded in a year that must have been truly wrenching for him emotionally – and it's not the kind of set that most people are going to love the first time they hear it. It took us a couple spins to soak it in, but we'll call it a success! Tracks include "Say You Will", "Welcome To Heartbreak", "Heartless", "Amazing", the hit "Love Lockdown", "Street Lights", "Coldest Winter" and more. CD

KlanNerwy Miast ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavy grooves from Poland's Klan – a group who worked more in the sound library scene than they did in the public eye – but who come across here with the rawness of some of the best British groups of the time! Bass is often very heavy – something that can make Klan sound funky on later records – but here, the focus is more hard rock – but at that great early level without any cliches, which creates a sinister current that holds plenty strong – even if you don't understand the language. Hammond comes in on some of the best tracks too – often with these cool trippy touches, and echoes of an older beat group vibe – and although vocals figure on most numbers, it's the band's deft instrumentation that really grabs us. Titles include "Kuzeni", "Winter", "Nerwy Miast", "Mrowisko", "Ani Ty", "Rajd Safari", and "Dwunastawka" – plus great covers of "Watermelon Man" and "Spinning Wheel". CD

Kool & The GangSpirit Of The Boogie ... LP
De-Lite, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Sure, this one's got "boogie" in the title – but don't let that scare you off! The album's carved in the same hard funky style as mid 70s hits like "Hollywood Swinging" or "Jungle Boogie" (both from earlier albums) – and in fact, the "boogie" in the title seems to be a definite reference to that latter track, which is aped a bit on the album, instead of the more common 70s use of the term for disco. Whew! That's a bit of a complicated explanation – but we're just trying to tell you that this one's still plenty funky, with loads of great drums, jazzy riffing, monster basslines, and even a dose of righteous soul! Tracks include "Spirit of The Boogie", "Jungle Jazz", "Ancestral Ceremony", "Winter Sadness", and "Ride the Rhythm". One of their last great LPs, and an essential addition to their mid 70's opus! Reissued with the original gatefold cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

A weird one – but one of the real standouts in Cleo Laine's 60s catalog! As the title might imply, Cleo sings jazz versions of Shakespeare poems and bits from plays – with musical backing by husband Johnny Dankworth, who gives the set a cool enough groove to really make it work, and keeps things from being as stuff as you might fear! Kenny Wheeler plays a fair bit of trumpet solos when Cleo's not singing – further emphasizing the jazz component of the record, and moving it away from the flowery language of The Bard. There's a strangely sinister feel here that we really like – and titles include "Blow Blow Thou Winter Wind", "Duet Of Sonnets", "Winter", "O Mistress Mine", 'Witches Fair & Foul", and "The Compleat Works".

The pair are supported by Jimmy Woode on bass and Sture Kalin on drums – for a 50/50 mix of American and European – in a style that's wonderfully spare, and which brings out some of the best dark tones of both players – and which also has Asmussen's instrument inflecting some nice color into Lewis' tones. The album sports a wonderful version of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" – plus a set of Lewis originals that include "If I Were Eve", "Winter Tale", "Slater's Theme", and "New York 19".

Patty McGovern's vocals are somewhat fragile and soft – but in a really nice way that mixes beautifully with Talbert's slightly modern backdrops – music that uses light woodwinds and a nice dose of jazz to create a moody, almost sad-tinged sound. The quality's quite different than many other 50s vocal dates – and it really makes us wish we'd heard more from the team of McGovern and Talbert. Titles include originals "Wednesday's Child", "I Like Snow", "Love Isn't Everything", and "Winter Song" – plus "Get Out Of Town", "Alone Together", "All In Fun", and "Hooray For Love".

Given the extended length of the record, Newton gets to cover a really wide range of material – and the album comes from sessions recorded in 1966 and 1970, which creates a nice depth of flavors.

Gil Scott-Heron1980 ... LP
Arista, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great one from Gil Scott-Heron – and another wonderful collaboration with Brian Jackson – who handled all the arrangements on this set, and gave the record that sweet jazzy sound that makes Gil's work from this time some of his best ever! There's loads of excellent electric piano from Jackson – whose work in the style made the Winter In America album so great – and the combination of Gil's vocals and his keys really makes the album sublime! Leading the way, Gil's heavy, strong, strident and focused lyricism – presciently and poetically preparing for the 80s as only he could! Includes the single "Shut 'Um Down", "Alien (Hold On To Your Dreams)", "Willing", "Corners", "Late Last Night", and "Push Comes To Shove". LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Scott-HeronBest Of Gil Scott-Heron ... LP
Arista, 1984. Sealed ... $9.99
A nice best-of collection of Gil's work on Arista – issued in the 80s, with Gil looking terrible in a "Members Only" kind of way on the cover, and with the extra new track "Re-Ron", an electro track about Ronald Reagan! Still, there's more than enough nice moments – like the live version of "The Bottle", which is edited down from it's original long version, plus the tracks "Winter In America", "Johannesburg", "Angel Dust", and a short excerpt of "B-Movie". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gil Scott-HeronFirst Minute Of A New Day ... CD
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Gil Scott Heron's first album for Arista – very much in the mellow soul jazz work of his legendary album on Strata East! The record features some wonderfully moody jazz backing that really marks a shift in Gil's style – never going too far over the top, but hitting a sweet groove that really lets him open up as a singer even more than before! There's plenty of warm electric piano on the album, couched in those wonderfully soulful phrases that Gil and Brian Jackson could cook up so effortlessly at the time – and tracks include the fantastic cut "Winter In America", plus "The Liberation Song (Red, Black And Green)", "Ain't No Such Thing As Superman" "We Beg Your Pardon", "Alluswe" and "Western Sunrise".

Toots Thielemans with Georges ArvanitasJazz In Paris – Blues Pour Flirter ... CD
Universal (France), 1961. Used ... $6.99
A fantastic album of jazz from Toots Thielemans – easily one of his best-ever jazz efforts, with a straight no-nonsense sound that you don't hear from some of his other work! The session was recorded in Paris in 1961, and the original LP issue of the material has been hard to come by for years – which is what makes this low-priced reissued even nicer to have. Thielemans plays guitar with a trio led by pianist Georges Arvanitas, with Roland Lobligeois on bass and Philippe Combelle on drums – and although a few cuts have Toots' trademark vocalization in the background, the main focus is on his guitar work and the piano solos of Arvanitas. Titles include "Flirt", "Winter In Madrid", "Hot Toddy", "Bag's Groove", "Try A Little Tenderness", and "Le Trottoir". CD

Armando TrovajoliItaliani Brava Gente ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy 2CDs ... $12.99
One of the more dramatic 60s soundtracks we've heard from the great Armando Trovajoli – a set of darkly brooding music that's perfect for the film's story of the Axis defeat in Russia during the winter of 1942! Trovajoli's got a really great way with his horns here – using them in this compressed way that really resonates strongly – sometimes with some very low-end energy that's quite striking, and which underscores the deeper feeling of the strings. But even better is the use of harmonica from Franco De Gemini – played here with an eerie, somber quality that's almost even more powerful than some of his work on westerns! This lavish 2CD package features the full soundtrack, plus a bonus CD of 32 more tracks – which means a lot more of Franco De Gemini to love than usual! CD

Ultimate PaintingUltimate Painting ... CD
Trouble In Mind, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
Timeless sounds from UK duo Ultimate Painting – named after a colorful piece of art constructed by the members of the Drop City counter culture community in the late 60s Colorado desert – and it befits the sound here! Chiming guitars, drums and hook-filled vocals abound, with influences that range from the Velvet Underground's melodic self-titled third album – with other period and more contemporary influences – but done with such a fresh and distinctive vibe, we feel like Ultimate Painting will be the ones influencing other bands to come! An inspiring reminder that the Trouble In Mind label is one better indie labels of the young post-millennium rock scene. Includes "Ultimate Painting", "Can't You See?", "Central Park Blues", "Riverside", "Ten Street", Rolling In The Deep End", "Three Piers", "Jame", "She's A Bomb" and "Winter In Your Heart". CD

Fred Van Hove & Shih-Yang LeeGalactic Alignment – Piano Duo Improvisation Live in Taipei 2012 (CD/DVD set) ... CD
Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 2012. New Copy CD & DVD ... $31.99
Heavy sounds from two mighty talents on the piano – overlooked Taiwanese pianist Shih Yang Lee, and the legendary Fred Van Hove – noted for his famous work on FMP! The package is great – as it features a CD and DVD in a hardcover with a great book in the middle – notes in English and Chinese, and photos too! The CD features solo material by each player, then some duets – beginning with two tracks by Lee titled "Repetitive Tics" and "Improvisation On The Name Of Fred", which both have this wonderfully jagged quality, yet still with a sense of tune – a bit like Misha Mengelberg. This is followed by "Winter In Motion" – a very long track by Van Hove that really showcases his ear for slow-building waves of sound. The pair then really spark magic in each other on five duet tracks – including "Games Inside Wooden Frames", "Continuing Reverse", "Counterpoint", and "Epilogue". DVD then features all new music – the long "Galactic Alignment", which is a duo improvisation! CD

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico (2 CD Deluxe Edition) ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. Used 2CDs ... $11.99
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". 2 CD version features the complete stereo mix of the LP plus the 4 tracks from Nico's Chesea Girl that featured the Velvets on the first disc. Disc 2 features the mono mix of the LP (first time on CD in the US), plus the single versions of "All Tomorrow's Parties", "I'll Be Your Mirror", "Sunday Morning" and "Femme Fatale". Other LP tracks include "The Black Angels Death Song", "I'm Waiting For My Man", "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "There She Goes Again", and "I'll Be Your Mirror". The Chelsea Girl tracks are "Little Sister", "Winter Song", "It Was A Pleasure Then, "Chelsea Girls", and "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams". 31 in all. CD

New Harold VickStraight Up ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1967. Used ... $9.99
A key record in the career of saxophone genius Harold Vick – one of our favorite players ever! Vick is a tremendous talent – the kind of guy we want to build memorials to, reissue albums by, and rewrite jazz history books so that every one knows how wonderful his work truly is. This album marks a real shift for Vick – away from the tenor/organ work of his early years, into a more complicated, more deeply soulful approach to the saxophone – in a style that hints and his expansive soul jazz recordings of the 70s. Vick's playing on tenor, soprano, and flute – really opening up his sound on all instruments, and working in an unusual group that features vibes by Warren Chiasson, guitar by Everett Barksdale, and rhythm by Hugh Walker and Walter Booker. The sound is incredibly rich, even on the more familiar numbers – and has an ambitious sound that seems to take on 20 years of saxophone work, yet somehow manage to come across with a style that's simple, uncluttered, and down to earth. Tracks include "Straight Up", "Lonely Girl", "Winter Blossom", and "We'll Be Together Again". CD

Ben WattNorth Marine Drive ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
A great album that Ben Watt recorded before teaming up with Tracey Thorn in Everything But The Girl – very different than his later solo work too! The tracks are similar to those on Tracey's solo album – with spare instrumentation (Watt on guitar and piano, and Brit jazzman Peter King on alto). Watt sings in moody, flat style, on a number of nice original compositions like "North Marine Drive", "Long Time No Sea", and "On Box Hill". And as an added bonus, this CD also includes 5 tracks of material recorded with Robert Wyatt, from the rare EP Summer Into Winter! This stuff is great, and is a perfect meeting of 2 talents who were performing in a similar style at the time – despite later musical divergences in their careers. CD

Wendy & BonnieGenesis (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Skye/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Very groovy 60s pop from Wendy & Bonnie – with a bit of a folksy influence, and a sound that's groovy sunshine personified! The greatness herein is no surprise, considering that Gary McFarland arranged and produced the album as one of his late 60s forays from jazz into rock – and you can hear Gary's strong talent for a subtle jazz-tinged sound on most of the album's best tracks. That said, Wendy & Bonnie deserve the biggest kudos, their lovely, easygoing harmonies providing the personality and the sweetness the really carries it all over. Includes "Let Yourself Go Another Time", "The Paisley Window Pane", "I Realized You", "By The Sea", "You Keep Hanging Up On My Mind", "It's What's Really Happening", "Endless Pathway", "Children Laughing" and "The Winter Is Cold".
