Intrigo A Los Angeles
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
Jazzy goodness from the wonderful Piero Umiliani – a set that's got some sweet instrumental touches from Chet Baker on trumpet, plus piano from Umiliani himself! The overall feel is very much in an early 60s crime jazz style – that best Italian groove before more mod and bossa-styled ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Bugge & Friends
Jazzland (Norway), 2015. New Copy
Bugge Wessltoft returns to a style that made us first fall in love with him many years back – a hip blend of jazzy instrumentation and more cosmic 21st Century touches – all wrapped up in that sweet style that first put Norway's Jazzland label on the map! Bugge's at the helm on Fender ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy
A totally cool collection of unusual cumbia cuts from 70s Peru – music that definitely earns the psychedelic tag promised in the title, given its heavy use of electric guitars and trippy production! The style here is different than more familiar cumbia from Colombia – rooted in the ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Two Chaps – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy
Two chaps, both of them great – legendary British improviser Evan Parker on tenor and soprano saxophone, working nicely alongside Yoshizawa Motoharu on bass! Although Parker was a player who first made waves early on the British free jazz scene, his work during this 90s stretch may well be ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Picture Of Heath
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy
A brilliant mid 70s album from Jimmy Heath – recorded at a time when he was making some of his greatest strides on record! The album's got a spare, simple quartet format – but Jimmy's working here in a really expansively soulful sound – one that matches that of Clifford Jordan at ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dada – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy
A pair of percussionists, working here together wonderfully – in a set that has both musicians using the drum kit and other percussion – and Han Bennink picking up a bit of piano as well! We've always loved Bennink's highly melodic approach – a style that seems to get notes out ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dagored (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)
Spacey electronics from Italian composer Piero Umiliani, credited here as Moggi – one of his great, non-soundtrack experimental works, taking a break from film scores to follow his own adventurous impulses – this one a trippy synthesizers-steeped tribute to Albert Einstein! It's got a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Take To Wheels
Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy
The Marketts take to wheels here – making the move to hot rod themes that so many other surf instrumental groups were doing at the time – yet also finding their own unique groove in the process! The Marketts always had more of an overall studio sound than some of the more live rock ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sonny Knight & The Lakers Do It Live
Secret Stash, 2015. New Copy
Powerhouse live funky soul from the great Sonny Knight & The Lakers – tearing it up for their hometown of Minneapolis, MN! Do It Live was recorded at the fairly intimate Dakota Jazz Club, and the choice to capture their incendiary live act in a relatively small venue was a good one ... CD (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Think the genius of Brian Wilson was only tapped by his partners in The Beach Boys? Think again – because as this lovely little set will show, a huge amount of other artists drew from the songwriting genius of Brian Wilson in the 60s – not just to cover the big hits of his famous group ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Very cool, very groovy soundtrack from this Italian film about satanic ritual and demonic possession! The great Piero Umiliani serves up a wide-ranging batch of tracks, from breezy vocal pop numbers (with vocals by Shirley Hammer), to spooky funk instrumentals with a sort of "haunted ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinevox/Contempo (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue)
One of the lesser-known 60s soundtrack moments from Riz Ortolani – one of the first Italian film composers to break out on an international scale – and a great little set that really offers up some great aspects of his talents! The film's a dark horror movie from the mid 60s, scored by ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chance For Hope
TSOB/Funky Delicacies, 1982. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent soulful disco album on the great TSOB label! Drummer, producer and band leader Norvell Holmes' name isn't likely to ring a bell for even hardcore 80s groove and disco fans, but this is an amazingly great album of modern soul with a polished feel to both the club cuts and mellower ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brotzmann/Van Hove/Bennink – 1971 (LP sleeve edition)
JG/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1971. New Copy Gatefold
Very rare, very obscure material from this important free jazz trio of the German scene in the 70s – a set that features one long performance originally issued on the JG label, despite the FMP-like image on the cover – plus two more tracks from the same year that appear here for the ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
In Europe (red vinyl pressing)
Arhoolie, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
Big Mama Thornton may well be best-remembered as the woman who gave the world "Hound Dog" – which later catapulted Elvis to fame – but over the years she continued to be a hell of a singer, with a rich legacy of music that more than stands on its own! Witness this mid 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album (Blues)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Minnesota Clay
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
We haven't heard that many western soundtracks from Piero Piccioni over the years – and we've gotta admit that this one's pretty darn compelling! There's definitely a western flavor to the music, but the set also shows plenty traces of Piccioni's early 60s jazz scoring as well – not ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Mighty sounds from a legendary Detroit soul producer – the great Dave Hamilton, a talent who issued a number of key singles back in the day, but who's left behind an even larger legacy of excellent unreleased work! This collection draws from both sides of that spectrum – and features ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold
Sweetly funky and very slinky – this is one of the best early 70s scores by the great Italian composer Piero Umiliani! The record has lots of bubbling electric piano, rumbling electric basslines, warm acoustic percussion, and moody wordless vocals. At some level, the album sounds a lot like ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ego Death
Columbia, 2015. New Copy
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Light In The Attic, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
Wonderful work from one of our favorite singers of all time – an artist with roots in jazz, but one who quickly stepped out into something else entirely – as you'll hear on this beautiful selection of tunes! Karin Krog's been a key figure in the Norwegian jazz scene since the start of ... CD (Vocalists)
