CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
European Jazz Sounds
Brunswick/Be! (Germany), 1957. New Copy
Some of the earliest work we've ever heard from German tenorist Joki Freund – a player who'd trip out a bit more in later years, but who blows here with a sound that's sharp, modern, and very swinging throughout! The group features trombone from Albert Mangelsdorff, who's also on the ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Of Smiles And Tears
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Brazilian rhythms meet French pop – all in an incredible album from the lovely Christiane Legrand! Christiane's probably best known for her work in the Swingle Singers – or for being the sister of the famous Michel Legrand, who she helped on a few soundtracks – but she sounds ... CD (French)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1960. New Copy Gatefold
The great Armando Trovajoli composed some of the grooviest soundtracks of the late 60s – but at the start of the decade, he was also shining strongly on the jazz front as well – turning out amazing work on albums like this, which we'd love to death, even if we didn't know him from his ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Be! (Germany), 1963. New Copy
Don't be put off by the title, because this is hardly the sort of ballet you might see at the opera house – and instead features some of the best early modern jazz work from the great Krzysztof Komeda. The title track is the ultimate recording of one of the most ambitious works ever composed ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Be! (Germany), 1966. New Copy 2CD
An incredible meeting of talents – both American and European jazz musicians coming together at a festival that must have been one hell of a event – certainly more exciting than just about any jazz festival we've ever attended in our lifetime! Unlike other festival recordings, this isn' ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Electronia (LP sleeve edition)
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1965. New Copy Gatefold
A totally great little record – every bit the gem you might expect from the title and the cover! The music is less electronic than infused with all the best electric instrumental styles of the 60s on keyboards and guitar – used on these short, jaunty instrumentals that are somewhere ... CD (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 5CD
The coolest collection we've ever seen to focus on the soundtrack work of the great Serge Gainsbourg – and the most complete as well! The 5CD package really digs deep – and seems to offer up tracks from just about every single film that Gainsbourg was involved with – from his own ... CD (French)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Stunning soul from the Detroit underground of the late 60s – a treasure trove of gems that literally grew up in the shadows of Motown – given that the work here was spearheaded by the Pied Piper Productions team of Jack Ashford, Mike Terry, Joe Hunter and Herbie Williams of the ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kom I Min Varld
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy
A totally groovy little record from Swedish singer Lill Lindfors – an artist who's got an equally great ear for sounds from France, Brazil, and even the American west coast – all of which she serves up here in her own unique style! Lill's music has always gotten attention from folks ... CD (Vocalists)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy
Sublime female sounds from the 60s – mostly soul, but a bit of rock too – all handled by landmark Cali producer Gary S Paxton! Paxton was a great talent at the time – not only for finding new aritsts, but also bringing them into their best light – coaching young solo ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1976. New Copy
One of the coolest, moogiest records we've ever heard from Mort Garson – and that's saying a lot, given that the man gave us the Wozzard Of Iz and a host of moog-based astrological records too! The album's billed as "mood music especially composed to aid the growing of your plants" ... CD (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Good Feeling
Legere (France), 2015. New Copy
Contemporary work from Jay W McGee – a Detroit singer with many years of recordings under his belt – including early 80s modern soul, and some important later house work as well! This album showcases Jay in both of those styles, and has this great indie soul vibe throughout – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Born Bad (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Grooviness abounds! This set's a wonderful batch of obscure French pop tunes – the kind of upbeat, hard-swinging 60s numbers that are a far cry from the moodier, more sentimental modes of the years before – with complicated elements laid alongside some straightforward grooves – ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Late 40s. New Copy 2CD
Some of the greatest, most influential rhythm & blues ever recorded – the seminal R&B recordings the great Wynonie Harris cut for King Records – plus a second CD of rare alternate takes! Wynonie paved the way for a huge number of artists to come, but even if we're going to ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hannover
Jazzwerkstatt (Germany), 2015. New Copy
We love these guys to death – even if we always get out of breath saying their name in a hurry – and they really shine strongly here, on a long live album that perfectly captures their non-stop sense of imagination and restless creativity! Unlike some of their other recent projects, ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1968. New Copy
Plenty of progressive percussion here – most of it pretty darn funky too! The set's an obscure sound library album, and it's definitely one of that rare breed that's all great, all the way through – filled with groovy little numbers that certainly offer a lot of the drums promised in ... CD (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Confetti
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy
A groovy Les Baxter album from the pre-exotica years – a set that showcases all the lively, jaunty styles that Les brought to his initial instrumental run on Capitol Records! The mix of sounds is as colorful as the title might imply – some Latin modes, wordless vocal passages, and ... CD (Now Sound)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
You No Fit Touch Am
Wah Wah 45s (UK), 2015. New Copy
Very old school Afro Funk from Dele Sosimi – and we mean that in the best way possible! Dele's working here in a style that's right in the best 70s mode from Fela Kuti – very hypnotic at a rhythmic level, but filled with progressive lyrics from the man himself – all at a level ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Leng (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs
A totally sweet little set – one that's filled with laidback, easygoing gems from the 70s underground – offered up here in both mixed and unmixed versions! The tunes aren't the psych you might expect from the title – and are instead these warm, personal numbers that lie somewhere ... CD (Funky Compilations)
