Ze RamalhoZe Ramalho De Paraiba ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
Vintage live work from this legendary Brazilian rocker – a series of different concerts, all brought together in a very cool 2CD package! The set features material from the shows Atlantida (1973), Um Dia Antes Da Vida (1976), Tres Aboios Diferentes (1974), and Coletiva De Musica Paraibana (1976) – plus one more track from a 1977 show – all with Ze Ramalho on vocals and guitar, working in relatively stripped-down settings with deeply personal inflections! The collection's a great contrast to some of his more produced studio albums – and titles include "O Monte Olimpia", "Avohai", "A Arvore", "Puxa Puxa", "Brejo Do Cruz", "Jacarepagua Blues", "Taxi Lunar", and "Aboio Eletronico".

✨✧ Slaughter JoeZe Do Caixao – The Complete Creation & Kaleidoscope Recordings ... CD
Rev-Ola/Creation (UK), 1980s. New Copy ... $3.99
The complete recordings of Slaughter Joe Foster – an incredible guitarist whose sound had a huge influence on the mid 80s British pop scene – with a raspy jangle that showed up often in recordings by other bands on Creation Records, particularly Biff Bang Pow and Jesus & Mary Chain! Joe's got props from both Kim Fowley and Alan McGhee, two producers who helped him hone his guitar sound into the tonal noise that shows up on these great recordings – and although he was one of the lesser-remembered acts from the C80 years, his sound is right up there with the best of the Creation scene of the time. The set features 17 tracks in all, including "Positively Something Wild", "I Know You Rider", "Napalm Girl", "If I Die Before I Wake", "The Lonesome Death Of Thurston Moore", and "I'll Follow You Down".

Tom ZeCorreio Da Estaco Do Bras (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of those impossible to find records by Tom Ze from the 70s – and well worth the search! The record has Ze working in a slightly more conventional mode – with a mix of styles that ranges from spare percussive tracks, to others that have a smoother production style, but still a fairly mad lyrical approach. There's a bit more electronics in here than on some of the earlier albums, but trust us, like all musical elements, they're used in the service of Ze's mad vision more than they are in any standard way. Titles include "Amor De Estrada", "Carta", "Morena", "Menina Jesus", "Na Parada De Sucesso", and "Pecado, Rifa E Revista". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom ZeTom Ze (1970) ... LP
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
One of Tom Ze's greatest records – and an album that proves that the Tropicalista spirit didn't die once Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil went into exile! The cover is a bit standard, in comparison to the artier look of other Tom Ze albums – but the sound is very forward-thinking, and still hangs onto the best modes of the Tropicalia years – a fantastic blend of Ze's spare soulful songwriting, psychedelic influences, and traces of older baroque production in the mix. Many moments remind us of our favorite albums by the Veloso, Gil, or Gal Costa from 1968 and 1969 – and the album's got some killer songs like "Qualquer Bobagem", "Escolinha Da Robot", "La Vem A Onda", "Distancia", and "Me Da Me De Me Diz".

✨✧ Tom Ze & Gilberto AssisGrupo Corpo – Santagustin ... CD
Milan, 2002. Used ... $8.99
Some of the most adventurous recent work we've heard from Tom Ze – done in collaboration with Gilberto Assis, for dance performances by the experimental Grupo Corpo! The whimsy of Ze's best recordings is firmly in place here – as strange sounds, tones, and rhythms dominate the set – but there's also a striking lack of ego – as even Ze's mad personality recedes in favor of the larger group performance. Great stuff all around, with much of the best touches of Ze's 70s work – and titles that include "Moura Sion", "Marco Da Era", "Ayres Da Mantiqueira", "Ciro Gberto", "Bate Boca", and "Hermetorio". CD

Tom Ze/Jorge BenJimmy Renda Se/Take it Easy My Brother Charlie ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1968/1970. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the grooviest tunes ever from Tom Ze – an artist you may know best for his more offbeat work of the 70s, but who gets nice and funky here on "Jimmy Rende Se" – yet at a level that keeps all his vocal complexity intact! The flipside features Jorge Ben's classic "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" – one of the singer's first great funky soul tunes, and a cut that definitely woke up the world to a whole new side of his talents! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jorge BenA Banda Do Ze Pretinho ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... About April 1, 2016 (delayed)
Funky, soulful, and totally wonderful – a wicked late 70s live set from Jorge Ben – and one of his few post-Philips albums that really holds the energy from earlier years! The date's a live one, and the group grooves in a style that's got plenty of Africa Brasil touches – mixed with some other soulful and funky modes too – always great for Jorge's wonderful vocals, especially on some of the earthier tracks. Titles include "Troca Troca", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde Boa Noite Amor", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Denize Rei", "Berenice", "Amante Amado", and "Era Uma Vez Treze". CD

Tom ZeDanc-eh-sa Ao Vivo – Danca Dos Herdeiros Do Sacrificio O Fim Da Cancao ... CD
Trama/Canal (Brazil), 2008. New Copy ... About July 20, 2015 (delayed)
A live performance of material from Tom Ze's Danc-eh-sa project – done here with tones that are even quirkier and more angular than the original! Most of the tracks have a strongly instrumental focus, but vocals are often used in an almost instrumental mode – chanted along with the rhythms, and laid in nicely amidst the basslines, guitar bits, and heavy percussion. The music's right up there with the most compelling Tom Ze work of the past few decades – as freshly creative as ever, and still pushing boundaries a lot farther than most of his Brazilian contemporaries! Titles include "Acum Maha", "Atchim", "Cara Cua", "Taka Ta", "Triu Triii", and "Uai Uai". CD

✨✧ Tom Ze & Ze Miguel WisnikGrupo Corpo – Parabelo ... CD
Milan (France), 1997. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great lost chapter in the career of Tom Ze – music recorded for a late 90s ballet, in a style that's quite different than much of Ze's other work from the time! Given the setting, the tunes are sparer and more rhythmic – and have the feel of some of the instrumental work that showed up on Ze's more adventurous sides from the 70s. Most tracks have a bit of vocals, but the core charm of the set is in the spare yet rich use of odd instrumentation – on titles that include "Uaua", "Canudos", "Bandego", "Xiquezique", and "Emere".

Luaka Bop/Warner, 1998. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best of Tom Ze's recent forays into the studio – and a postmodern postrock production effort that really suits his style well! Clearly, the folks at Luaka Bop are trying to stick Ze into that elite corner of avant rockers that's been dominating the hipster press for the past 5 years – and actually, the album does a pretty good job of earning Ze the reputation he deserves. Titles include "Dancar", "Juventude Javali", "Valsar", "Xiquexique", "Olho Do Lago", and "Politicar". CD

Solar/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A legendary lost album from Brazilian songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho – recorded in Brazil in the mid 70s – blending avant psychedelia, rugged acoustic rhythms, and an enormous free spirit with delicate melodic touches and lilting jazzy elements! As is the case with the work of the best, most adventurous Brazilian artists of the time, it's a difficult sound to describe. It's a very atmospheric blend – sung and chanted vocals are no more or less important than any of the other elements – which include classical acoustic and fuzzy electric guitar, piano, organ, flute, sax and a range of percussion. It's free and psychedelic, but just reigned in enough to keep it tense and exciting. Pure greatness – hopefully bound to achieve some long overdue recognition! Tracks include "Trilha De Sume", "Culto A Terra", "Bailado Das Muscarias", "Nao Existe Molhado Igua; Ao Pranto", "Raga Dos Raios", "Nas Paredes Da Pedra Encantada", "Regato Da Montanha", Trilha De Sume" and more! New reissue version has way better sound than before – and reproduces all the cool graphics of the original cover. CD

Incredible! This is one of Tom Ze's best albums ever – and it's monsterously hard to find. The record is a fantastic blend of post-Tropicalia styles – and it features some strange arrangements that perfectly illustrated Ze's insane approach to songwriting. As with much of Ze's music, the actual sound is incredibly hard to describe – and the album bristles with imagination and creative fire. Includes a haunting spare version of "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Tom", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui!", "Hein?", and "Mae". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom ZeGrande Liquidacao ... CD
Rozenblit/Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Kick ass early work from the great Tom Ze – recorded in the beginning of the Tropicalia years, but with a style that shows Ze sitting on the fence between rock/pop and some of his madder later work! The style's still pretty hard to describe, and listening to the music, you can hear how much of an influence Ze must have had on the styles of Caetano Veloso and Os Mutantes – whose work from 1969 is echoed in many of the songs on the album. There's lots of weird organ, arranged in kind of a swirling psychedelic way that reminds us of songs from the early Mutantes album, or from the Tropicalia Ou Panis et Circensis album from 1968. Ze wrote all the tracks, and titles include "Sabor De Burrice", "Camelo", "Gloria", "Curso Intesivo De Boas Maneiras", "Parque Industrial", and "Profissao De Ladrao". A great cover, and a rare rare relic! CD

CristinaSleep It Off ... CD
Ze (France), 1984. New Copy ... $15.99
The second and final chapter in the career of Cristina – the female singer who was a key link in the New York club scene between Grace Jones and Madonna! Like the former, Cristina was not a singer at heart – but rose into the mainstream with a quirky ear for a tune and model-like looks that helped carry off her act. And like the latter, she clearly marched to the beat of her own tune – and did so with enough charisma and self-assured star power to get that tune out into the clubs. This second album features Cristina working in a very different style than on her debut – teaming with Don Was in a set of Detroit recordings that also featured a fair bit of original lyrics by Cristina. The camp/retro mode of the first album is still present here, but in a more subtle way – and the disco grooves have been replaced by more of the Was Not Was proto-funk approach, which means heavier beats and noisier guitars overall. The core album features original tracks "What's A Girl To Do", "Ticket To The Tropics", "The Lie Of Love", "Quicksand Lovers", and "He Dines Out On Death" – plus covers of "Blue Money" and the Brech/Weil tune "Ballad Of Immoral Earnings". The CD adds in some bonus tracks from the original sessions, including "Smile" and "Deb Behind Bars" – plus tracks from a Robert Palmer-produced session, including a version of Prince's "When You Were Mine", and the original "You Rented A Space".

Ze Records diva Lizzy Mercier Descloux works here with influential post-disco, post-punk producer Steve Stanely – on a set of tunes cut in Nassau, with some great backing by a combo that includes Wally Badarou on keyboards. The resulting groove takes the skittish pan-club sound of the early 80s Ze Records scene, and infuses it with the hippest take on Jamaican rhythms of the time – resulting in a groundbreaking batch of tunes that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "Room Mate", "Sports Spootnicks", "Payola", "Funky Stuff", "Slipped Disc", "Lady O K'Pete", and "Bim Bam Boum".

The amazing Lizzy Mercier Descloux adds one more global feather to her cap with this sweet little album – a set recorded in Rio, with help from a host of Brazilian musicians – and some special guest work from legendary trumpeter Chet Baker too! The record warms up the sound a bit from some of Lizzy's earlier records – still quite creative in both the songwriting and overall approach, but almost given a warmer spin alongside instrumentation that includes accordion from Sivuca, cavaquinho from Alceu Maia, acoustic guitar from Neco, and percussion from Djalma Correa! Other instrumentation still includes some of the keyboards and rhythm lines you'd know from Lizzy's other Ze Record releases – and titles include "Simply Beautiful", "Fog Horn Blues", "My Funny Valentine", "One For The Soul", "A World Is A Wah", and "Scala Saga Samba".

A brilliant and overlooked gem from the glorious post-disco years of the New York scene – the first album recorded by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, a French native who'd relocated to America in the late 70s, and soaked up a huge array of influences from the scene at the time!

The album's got a sound that's still as lean as Lizzy's earliest albums, but a slightly warmer glow too – almost a jazzy vibe at times, with a style that takes us back to our favorite sounds from the Swamp Children/Kalima on Factory Records at the same time – although with plenty of that French twist that she's always brought to her music.

Was Not WasOut Come The Freaks ... CD
Ze (France), Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
Don Was come back! All is forgiven! For years, we'd thought poorly of you because of later projects, but going back to this classic early album for Ze Records, we now realize what a genius you were! Like other sets on Ze at the time, this one's a brilliant blend of funk, punk, rock, and soul – done with a post-P Funk approach to the grooves that puts plenty of bass on the bottoms, and which also flows lots of other interesting instrumentation into the grooves to keep things fresh. The production is stellar – soulful, bouncing, and joyously aware of every element of the full album's potential – and the whole album's a lively ensemble affair that features work by artists as diverse as Wayne Kramer, Marcus Belgrave, and Sweet Pea Atkinson! CD is greatly expanded from the original, and titles include "Oh Mr Friction", "Wheel Me Out (long version)", "Out Come The Freaks", "Hello Operator (short)", "It's An Attack", "Carry Me Back To Old Morocco", "Christmas Time In Motor City", "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming", and some nice bonus mixes!

Ze (France), Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
When the dancefloor squeaks, out come the geeks! This set's a great counterpart to the classic Was Not Was album on Ze Records – as it offers up 12" remixes and obscurities by the group – all done in the same disco-not-disco blend of funk, punk, and club that made their earliest work so fresh! A number of the tunes on the set are remakes of tracks from the group's album – but like much of the remixes on Ze, they're handled in ways that really transform from the original – adding in a lot more percussion and bass, and going for a lively "party" sort of feel that really makes the tunes sound great! Titles include "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming (traditional 12" rmx)", "Out Come The Freaks (predominantly funk version)", "Wheel Me Out (classic 12" version)", "Hello Operator (classic 12" version)", "Dance Or Die", "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming (souped up version)/Out Come The Freaks (dub version)", "White People Can't Dance", and "(Return To The Valley Of) Out Come The Freaks (extended)".

Ze (France), 1983. New Copy ... $15.99
Later work by enigmatic sax firebrand James White, aka James Chance – this time dubbing his clattering cacophony the Flaming Demonics – a more funk and free jazz focused effort than his punkier incarnations! Most of the tracks are long, exhausting instrumental maelstroms – led by White's dissonant alto sax honking, with a big backdrop of baritone sax, trumpet, funky guitar and bass, and occasional girly back up vocals. James even sits at Farfisa and piano on a couple tunes! Tracks include "The Devil Made Me Do It", "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams", "Rantin' & Ravin'", "The Natives Are Restless", "Caravan/It Don't Mean A Thing/Melt Yourself Down" and "I Danced With A Zombie" plus three bonus tracks – "White Meat", "Town Without Pity" and "Hype No Tease", all of which hearken a bit back to the Contortions sounds, with slightly cleaner sounding production.

The sound is incredible – an inspiration for countless other groups, but rarely duplicated as well – with tracks that include "Bleached Black", "White Devil", "Almost Black", "Heat Wave", "Stained Sheets", and "Contort Yourself". The CD version includes four bonus tracks: "Christmas With Satan" plus live versions of "Disposable You", "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" and "Excorcise The Funk". CD

VariousMutant Disco – A Subtle Discolation Of The Norm – Vol 1 ... CD
Ze (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
Ho! This one takes us back! We're not as old as you might think here at Dusty Groove, but we're old enough to remember that wonderful period in the early 80s when somewhere on the lower east side, the energy and rawness of punk and post punk were meeting up with the glamour of the glitzed up disco club scene. ZE records was all over the scene, releasing the finest mutated disco from arch scenesters like August Darnell and the not-yet-heavyweight producer Don Was to other greats who might sadly have become sidebars in the history of modern music if not for this compilation, like Lizzy Mercer Descloux and Cristina. Each and every track grooves along with an unstoppable energy, whether it's Kid Creole's sophisticated Latin-esque numbers, Garcons' bubbling synths or Was (Not Was)'s faux R&B. Original 2CD set has been split into 2 single CDs – with tracks on volume 1 that include "Wheel Me Out" by Was Not Was, "Drive My Car" by Cristina, "Bustin Out" by Material w/Nona Hendryx, "Encore L'Amore" by Garcons, "Blame It On Disco" by Cristina, "Annie" by Kid Creole, "Emile (Night Rate)" by Aural Exciters, "Funky Stuff" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, "Cowboys & Gangsters" by Gichi Dan, "Contort Yourself" by James White & The Blacks, and "Deputy Of Love" by Don Armando's 2nd Ave Rhumba Band.

VariousMutant Disco – A Subtle Discolation Of The Norm – Vol 3 – Garage Sale ... CD
Ze (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Mutant Disco compilation on Ze Records – one that's newly put together by the revived label, but which features some of the company's best club cuts from the late 70s and early 80s! The "garage" in the title is a sly reference to the fact that Larry Levan's work at the Paradise Garage helped break some of the best Ze tunes on the New York scene – and overall, there's a definite early 80s downtown groove to the tracks on the package – a wonderful blend of post-disco and punk-funk elements, all served up with the usual Ze sense of style and whimsy! The best part of the package is that it brings together a number of harder to find Ze tracks – including a large number of tunes we haven't been able to track down in years, plus a few more that are making a much-needed first appearance here on CD! 15 tracks in all – with titles that include "I'm An Indian Too" by Don Armando, "Yaya" by Ron Rogers, "Sey Hey" by Coati Mundi, "Man Vs The Empire Brain Building" by Was Not Was, "Maladie D'Amour" by Aural Exciters, "Outlaw (August Darnell rmx)" by Alan Vega, "Dance Or Die" by Sweet Pea Atkinson with Was Not Was, "Techno Freqs" by Junie Morrison, "Read My Lips" by Thousand Points Of Night (Was Not Was), "No Time To Stop Believing In Love" by Daisy Chain, "He's The Groove" by Snuky Tate, and "Dream Baby Dream (long version)" by Suicide.

Ze (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
Could you get any more disaffected than this collection of arty post punk brats? Bristling with the energy of New York's Village and lower east side, these great tracks from the late 70s and early 80s ooze a raw primitive vibe unmatched by even the fiercest punk rock of the day, and saddle it up next to some of the most ridiculously self aware poetry and lyrics you'll come across. 22 snapshots of the best the briefly lived NY No Wave scene had to offer, originally issued on ZE records, including James White & The Blacks "Contort Yourself" & "Almost Black", Lydia Lunch "Lady Scarface", Suicide "Mister Ray" & "Radiation", Teenage Jesus & The Jerks "The Closet" & "Empty Eyes", Rosa Yemen "Herpes Simplex", "Larousse Baron Bic" & "Rosa Vertov", Mars "3E" & "11,000 Volts", Arto/Neto "Pini, Pini" & "Malu" and Lizzy Mercier Descloux "Wawa" & "Torso Corso".

Joao DonatoLeiliadas ... CD
Elektra (Brazil), 1986. Used ... $11.99
An overlooked gem from keyboardist Joao Donato – cut in a mid 80s stretch when he was hardly doing any recording at all! The set's almost more of a jazz record than some of Donato's previous work – recorded with a warm vibe that's right up there with the best Brazilian fusion of the time – and by that, we mean the real deal coming from Brazil – not the American variant! Donato's still got a wonderful way of handling the keys – coming up with these subtle turns of phrase and gentle colors that hold us spellbound throughout – alongside other instrumentation that includes Mauro Senise and Ze Carlos on saxes, Serginho on trombone, and Paulinho on trumpet. Joao sings just a bit at a few points, but the overall vibe is instrumental – kind of a nice extension from the mellow cuts on the Quem E Quem album. Titles include "Leila XIII", "Leila VIII", and "Leila VI (Lua Dourada)". CD

Flying LizardsFlying Lizards ... LP
Virgin, 1979. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A new wave crossover classic from The Flying Lizards – one of the quirkiest groups of their era! The group were European, but have a sound that resonates strongly with the most playful post-disco work of the New York scene of the time, particularly the acts on Ze Records – a groove that mixes equal part punky and clubby rhythms, often topped with lyrics that are cold, but clever, done in the same ironic arty style of Cristina, or Devo. This album's the group's standout opus – and features their classic covers of "Summertime Blues" and "Money" – as well as originals "The Flood", "TV", "The Window", and "Russia".

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969 plus bonus tracks) (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $14.99
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil! And as an added bonus, you get 5 bonus cuts: demos of "Cultura E Civilizacao" and "Come Medo, Com Pedro", a duet with Jorge Ben & Caetano Veloso on "Queremos Guerra", a live version of the cut "Aquele Abraco", and the cut "Oma Lao".

The session's heavy on percussion and guitar-based rhythms – and vocals shift from track to track – sometimes with one star out front in the lead, sometimes with lyrics traded back and forth between the members of the group. Titles include "Menino D 47", "A Humanidade", "O Poeta E A Natureza", "Cuidado Vovo", "O Que Seus Olhos Tem", "Balsamo Da Paz", "Amor Aventureiro", and "Obsessao". CD

JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A stunner of a record – the first-ever album by The JBs, never issued back in the day – and lost for years until it recently resurfaced on a test pressing! The set features a leaner, more stripped-down version of the group – one that features Bootsy Collins on bass, and which doesn't rely as much on the horns as it does some very upfront playing by the rhythm section – who really set fire to the extended instrumental solos on the album's very long tracks! Group members include Robert McCullough on tenor, St Clair Pickney on flute and baritone, Bobby Byrd on piano, Catfish Collins on guitar, and James Brown himself on organ – and the mighty Clyde Stubblefield handles drums, as well as Frank Kash Waddy. All tracks are very long – quite different than the shorter single-type cuts on Pass The Peas – and the record features the first recording of "The Grunt", plus the long jams "I'll Ze", "These Are The JBs (parts 1 & 2)", and "When You Feel It Grunt If You Can".

RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a way, this album is kind of a turning point in Miltinho's career – as he makes the shift towards some of the bossa-inspired styles he'd pick up more strongly in later years. The arrangements are by Ruben Perez and Nelsinho – and they're as timelesss and breezily beautiful as ever! Title include "Caminho Perdido", "Samba Do Crioulo", "E Amanha", "Samba Sem Pim Pom", "Ze De Conceicao", "Serenata Da Chuva", "Faco Um Lelele", and "Cancao De Amor". CD

NomoInvisible Cities ... CD
Ubiquity, 2009. Used ... $7.99
Great stuff from global funk phenoms Nomo – deftly blending Afro steeped funk with an astral reach – with more of a spiritual jazz influence and off kilter avant touches! Invisible Cities arrives just about a year since their breakthrough Ghost Rock opened so many doors, and although productivity and consistency have never been a problem with Elliot Bergman & co, we're still pretty awestruck – especially given that Ghost Rock set the bar pretty high! Blazing horns, dynamic rhythms and rapturous percussion galore, with the electric kalimba still defining the group's identity nicely, with lots of sweaty funk, more spacious spiritual jazz atmosphere, and a couple of choice covers – Moondog's "Bumba" gets a bit of Caribbean funk treatment with steel drums, plus a reverent take on Tom Ze's "Ma"! Other tracks include "Invisible Cities", "Waiting", "Crescent", "Patterns", "Elijah" and "Nocturne". CD

Os MutantesHaih Ou Amortecedor ... CD
Anti, 2009. Used ... $5.99
The long awaited return of Brazilian iconoclasts Os Mutantes – featuring original Mutante Sergio Dias and a great new band – plus songwriting contributions from Tom Ze and Jorge Ben – a forward looking endeavor, not at all a nostalgia trip! It's been around 30 years since the previous Os Mutantes album, and the never predictable Dias sounds as fresh and energized as we hoped he'd be – with bright, catchy-as-hell melodies, wildly playful carnivalesque sounds as well as more rootsy acoustic bits, on songs that fearlessly blend genres and influences. It's hard to imagine that we'll ever love records from Mutantes, or anyone else in any genre, as much as we love the late 60s stuff – but this is excellent, and among the better Mutantes records since the Rita Lee era. Dias sings and plays electric & acoustic guitars, Egyptian oud, organ, percussion, harmonica and handles the string arrangements, and fellow Mutantes this time out include percussion, drums & vocals by Dinho Leme and Bia Mendes, vocals, piano & keys by Henrique Peters and Fabio Recco, percussion & sound design by Simone Sou, bass, flute, strings and string arrangements and more by Citor Trida. Titles include "Hymns Of The World (Intro)", "Querida Qierida", "Teclar", "2000 E Agarrum", "Baghdad Blues", "O Careca", "O Mensageiro", "Anagrama" featuring Tom Ze, "Aamba Do Fidel", "Nada Mudou", "Gopala Krishna Om", "Hymns Of The World (Final)" and more.

Omplatten, 1969. Used ... $6.99
The second set of madness from the legendary Os Mutantes – and like the first, an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer Rogerio Duprat, whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! The album's got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune – a playful pastiche that's partly postmodern, partly psychedelic, and still tremendously powerful decades later – even if you can't understand most of the lyrics! Styles are just about impossible to pin down, but that's what makes the record so unique and essential – and if you ever needed one album to convince you of the mindblowing energy taking place during the Tropicalia years, this one may well be it! A few tracks are written by Tom Ze, and titles include "Dom Quixote", "Dia 36", "Magica", "Rita Lee", "Algo Mais", "Qualquer Bobagem", and "Fuga No II". CD

A funky samba gem from the 70s – the only album we've ever seen from Jorginho Pessanha, and a set that grooves with plenty of bassy percussion – in an all-acoustic mode that's nice and raw! Jorginho's got wonderfully soulful vocals – raspy, with a real charm that totally gets us, even if we can't understand the language – and the music is totally infectious right from the start, with all sorts of bumping drum lines peppered with other percussion, a jazzy trumpet, and some backup vocals too! The whole thing's great – kind of a rootsier version of sounds explored by Jorge Ben or Wilson Simonal at the time – and titles include "Hoje Nao", "Mulata", "Nem Meu Amor", "E Isso Ai Moco", "Que Samba E Esse", "A Historia Do Ze", "Tem Que Ter Tamborim", and "Ex Amor".

Arthur RussellCalling Out Of Context ... LP
Audika, Mid 80s-Early 90s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99
A great collection of unreleased recordings by the great, largely unheralded Arthur Russell – one of the key players in the late 70s/early 80s NY underground – whose influence can be found everywhere from the smoky disco of the Paradise Garage scene to the dubby, arrhythmic, and percussive pounding of the post punk era! If you know anything about Russell, you know he hated to be nailed down. He's a classically trained cellist, who made his name producing now legendary disco numbers for Loose Joints and others. He went into the 80s exploring the kind of harder charging, minimalist grooving vibe that was kicked into effect by the unholy union of punk and dance music, but unlike some of the others Arthur still carried the soulful musicality of the 70s. The 12 tracks here are culled from sessions cut between 1985 and 1990 when Russell was signed to Rough Trade – and have gone completely unreleased until now! Most feature Russell on almost unrecognizable ambient cello, hypnotic vocals, and some of the coolest 80s drum programming you'll ever hear – with lots of cool synth notes and effects overdubbed, often with Peter Zummo on trombone and Mustafa Ahmed on percussion. It's really hypnotic, fairly raw, quite left of center but still very groovy stuff! If you appreciate the Ze Records scene, and all of those the great reissues of the NY post punk and disco years, this is totally essential! Tracks include "In The Deer Forest Part 1", "The Platform On The Ocean", "You And Me Both", "Calling Out Of Context", "Arm Around You", "Wild Combination", "Get Around To It" and more.

Samba Meets Boogie WoogieSamba Meets Boogie Woogie ... CD
Adventure Music, 2008. Used ... $5.99
Kind of a silly name, but a really great group – and one without any of the hoke you might expect! The sound is definitely what's promised, a meeting of samba rhythms and older American jazz – but there's a breezy sort of warmth to the record that's light years from standard boogie woogie – much more in the warmest territory that you'd find in Brazilian jazz from the 70s onwards! The tunes are mostly older Brazilian numbers, and they've got a slight hint of nostalgia – but one that's very small, and flavored more by the younger energy of the musicians and singers in the project. Vocalists include Monica Salmaso, Roberto Sa, Mario Adnet, Ze Renato, and Maucha Adnet – and arrangements are by Mario Adnet, and mostly feature small combo jazz instrumentation. Titles include "Adeus America", "O Trombone Do Tribuza", "Brasil Pandeiro", "Tintim Por Tintim", "Conversa De Samba", "Baiana No Harlem", "Boogie Woogie Do Rato", "Eu Quero Um Samba", "Morena Faceira", and "Nada De Rock Rock".

A stunning set of funky nuggets from 70s Brazil – an expertly chosen collection that really hones in on material that shows the strongest influence on the scene from American work of the time – complete with heavy drums, sharp guitars, funky basslines, and killer keyboards that all bring a funky sound to the Portuguese vocals of the tunes! There's some occasional regional influences – touches of samba soul here and there – but overall, most of these cuts could equally compete with the best American funk of the time – save for the difference of language! Yet there's also some really great production and arrangement twists and turns too – unique elements that really make these tunes stand out, as kind of a hip "something extra" that makes the set well worth checking out. The mighty Greg Caz picked the music – and he's been collecting and spinning this stuff for many years – and titles include "A Hora E Essa" by Celia, "Kizumbau" by Eduardo Araujo, "Aposta" by Toni Tornado, "Paz E Amor" by Os Incriveis, "Uma Vida" by Dom Salvador E Abolicao, "Ei Voce Psiu" by Franco, "Jimmy Rende Se" by Tom Ze, "America Latina" by Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma, "Swinga Sambaby" by Trio Mocoto, "Bochechuda" by Toni Tornado, and "Quem Va La" by Antonio Carlos E Jocafi.

The whole thing's a dream, and features early versions of Ben's own tracks "Mas Que Nada" and "Por Causa De Voce Menina" – plus the tracks "A Vida Do Negro", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Tudo Azul", and "Samba Do Aviao".

Very cool sounds from the French scene of the post-disco years – music that reflects that growing embrace of boogie rhythms on European dancefloors, but in ways that are often inflected with new wave and electro soul styles too! The music here is leaner and a lot more creative than the bigger Euro disco modes of a few years before – and often has that criss-crossing of soul, funk, rock, and post-punk modes that played big on the downtown New York scene of the early 80s – that Danceteria mode you'd hear on Ze Records, 99 Records, or other hip imprints of the time – but delivered here in a batch of tracks that are a lot more obscure! The Born Bad label has already tipped us off to groovy French sounds from the 60s, and punk work of the 70s – and this package is another one of their culture-opening gems – with titles that include "Easy Life" by New Paradise, "Play Boy En Detresse" by Style, "A Mon Age Deja Fatique" by Pierre Edouard, "La Degaine" by Trigo & Friends, "La Fourmi" by Bianca, "Gerard Vincent Par Gerard Vincent" by Gerard Vincent, "Ma Vie Dans Un Bocal" by Ich, "Les Crabes" by Attache Case, "Miam Miam Goody Goody" by Henriette Coulouvrat, and "Qu'Est Ce Qu'Il A" by Krootchey.

A darker groove than usual from this hip European combo – a record that still has their commitment to global sounds at its core, but which also comes across with these great 70s electric modes too – almost echoes of Dark Magus Miles Davis and Sextant Herbie Hancock – thanks to loads of cool keyboards and fuzzed-out production! The acoustic elements resonate wonderfully with the electric ones – so that percussion, bass, horns, and strings add a rich organic level next to the guitar, Fender Rhodes, and Wurlitzer – blending beautifully with a musical vision that really surprises us, given the earlier work from this group – a much richer sound, and one that's got us loving them way more than before. Titles include "Kagemusha", "Rituel", "Pulsion", "Complot", "Shaman", "Drama", "En Sursis", "Code Panthera", "French Connexion", "Homo Analog", and "Resurrection". CD

Mahmoud AhmedEre Mela Mela (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/L'Arome/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard in your life – an assortment of mid 70s tunes from Mahmoud Ahmed, the second grooviest Ethiopian artist, next to Mulatu! Ahmed's sound is a lot more out there than Mulatu's – less funky and jazz-based, and more in the mode of snakey rhythms, complicated guitar parts, and vocals that have a melancholy quality that's simply amazing. This set features tunes that recently appeared on volume 7 of the Ethiopiques CD series – but which are presented here in the format of the original 1975 LP! Titles include "Ere Mela Mela", "Ohoho Gedama", "Tezeta", "Abbay Mado", "Atawurulegn Lela", and "Endenesh Gedawo". LP, Vinyl record album

Teemu Akerblom QuartetTeemu Akerblom Quartet (with download) ... LP
Jazzaggression (Finland), 2015. New Copy ... $24.99
An excellent contemporary combo from Finland – but one who are right at home on the Jazzaggression label, which mostly issues rare gems from years past! The sound here is plenty classic – and recalls that great 70s moment on the European scene when the best groups were aware of 60s advances like free or modal jazz, but could also swing as well – often bringing all elements to play in a single tune, but finding a way to make their most creative work still hold very strongly to a larger tradition in jazz! The group here is a quartet, but one with a slightly shifting lineup – the core trio of Teemu Akerblom on bass, Mikko Arlin on drums, and Max Zenger on saxes and flute – plus a changing fourth player from track to track – either Ville Vannemaa or Jarno Tikka on tenor, or Verneri Pohjola on trumpet. The lack of any piano really enforces the importance of the bass to the rhythms – and Akerblom's a player with a strong sense of modal energy, which often sets things up beautifully for the reed and trumpet solos to really soar and do their thing – shifting in intensity from track to track, partly because of that rotating fourth player! All tracks are original, and very fresh – and titles include "Blues For Martin", "Dark Corners", "Gilman's Point", "October 22", and "Harmaata Nakyvissa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniI Cantori Moderni (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
One of the coolest albums we've ever heard from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that's heavy on the vocal interplay of his I Cantori Moderni group, but which also features lots of dark musical elements as well! The blend is incredible – soaring harmonies on one hand, served up with plenty of jazz – but some cool instrumental twists and turns underneath, which often create a moody quality that really contrasts the vocals! Alessandroni's always been great – but this album takes his genius to a whole new level – with cuts that include "Verso L'Infinito", "Ciocando Con Le Note", "Valzer Del Baraccone", "Nella Balera", and "Ghen Ghen Ghe".

Davie Allan & The ArrowsDevil's Rumble – Anthology 1964 – 1968 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, 1960s. New Copy 2LPGatefold ... $34.99 36.99
Freaky fuzzed out madness – and a much-needed look at the work of Davie Allan & The Arrows – kings of the 60s biker soundtrack! Davie first started out with sort of a Ventures-esque approach – jamming fast and hard in a surf-inspired guitar instrumental mode – but as his career went on, he really fuzzed things up a lot, and started going for a trippier groove that was perfect for the cheapo exploitation films coming out of the AIP studios at the time. Allan's work appeared in films like The Wild Angels, Devil's Angels, Mondo Hollywood, Born Losers, The Glory Stompers, and The Hellcats – and this sweet little set brings together some of the best of those tunes, along with a really full set of notes that finally tells the story behind this mysterious group! All tracks are instrumentals, with lots of heavy bass and percussion – and titles include "King Fuzz", "Devil's Rumble", "Another Cycle In Detroit", "Glory Stompers", "Cycle Delic", "Blue Rides Again", "Invasion", "Shape Of Things To Come", "Hellcats", "Born Loser's Theme", and "Moonfire".

Rance Allen GroupStraight From The Heart ... LP
Stax, 1978. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A return to Stax by Rance Allen – his first album for the label after a stellar set for Capitol, and a much smoother set than before! Rance has learned from his work with Larry Mizell on Capitol, and is using a warmer glide on his tracks on this set – arrangements mostly done by producer Henry Cosby, used to kick Rance's sound up to a smoother modern soul kind of sound. The overall groove isn't as spacious as his work on Capitol, but the record's still pretty darn nice – and given Rance's always-great vocals, we tend to love just about anything he does. Titles include "Stand Up For Love", "I Belong To You", "Joy", "Security", "California Gold", "I Found A Friend", and "The Wheel Of Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaMan & A Woman ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
Bossa guitar, dreamy orchestrations, and a wonderful American take on the Brazilian sound of the 60s – served up with sparkling Capitol Records production in a set that's easily one of the greatest by guitarist Laurindo Almeida! Almeida's guitar is matched here with some lightly jazzy backings from Lex De Azevedo – slightly pop, but always groovy – and with a gentle sound that matches bossa roots with some of the more complicated modes from 60s soundtrack years – served up in sweeping strings, moody woodwinds, and some nicely isolated notes from Almedia's acoustic guitar. Titles include "A Man & A Woman", done very nicely, plus "Mas Que Nada", "Soft Mood", "Bluesette", "Call Me", and "Going Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Rica AmabisSambadelic ... CD
YB Music/Sterns, 2004. Used ... $7.99
Older samba tunes, remade and remixed – in a style that recalls the approach of some of the bossa remix work in recent years! The album uses lots of core bits from older recordings – interspersed with some nice electronic touches and effects – and given the organic joy of most samba recordings, it's kind of amazing how dark and brooding this set can sometimes feel. Titles include "Mulata Assanhada", "Samba Tal Samba", "Marcio Leonardo E Telmo", "Vozes Da Seca", "Esquema Freestyle", "Uba", "Noel", and "Drum N Sambass". CD

Curtis Amy & Frank ButlerGroovin Blue ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of the best Curtis Amy records for Pacific Jazz – and an album that really has him stretching out, hitting some of the more openly soulful modes that would develop further in the 60s! The set's a partnership with drummer Frank Butler, who himself is a pretty hip cat – and together, the pair break past the organ/tenor modes of the initial albums by Amy – really stretching out with help from trumpeter Carmell Jones, pianist Frank Strazzeri, and a young Bobby Hutcherson on vibes! Bassist Jimmy Bond ensures that things groove tightly – and titles include "Very Frank", "Groovin Blue", "Bobblin", and "Gone Into It". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Murphy AndersonBuck Rogers In The 25th Century – The Complete Sudays 1958 to 1959 (hardcover) ... Book
Hermes, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 40.00
One of our favorite sci-fi comics artists ever – presented here in a short but wonderful run on the Buck Rogers Sunday pages of the late 50s! Murphy Anderson is a genius – an artist whose work on DC titles like Hawkman, Strange Adventures, Mystery In Space, and even Superman helped define a generation – really giving a slick, clean line to the look of comics in the silver age – and concurrent with the start of that run, Anderson also took over the Buck Rogers newspaper strip for its large Sunday pages – which are presented here in stunning color, in a beautifully oversized book! Anderson's as great here as on some other series – like The Atomic Knights – and although the book only has the Sunday pages, they work together to form a single story week to week, without the need for daily pages. 80 pages, oversize, and in full color.

Animated EggGuitar Freakout (with bonus tracks) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, 1968. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99 36.98
Freaky fuzzy guitars from the great Jerry Cole – working here under the name of The Animated Egg – not a real group, but a one-off studio project! The music is much trippier than Jerry's famous surf work – more fuzz on the amps, and a romping sort of rhythm that often takes these tunes right into Cherrystones funky rock territory, which is always treat for ears like ours – and the music veers between hard 60s instrumentals and modder Now Sound territory – thanks to some burning organ alongside the tight guitar and drums. The original rare album has been really expanded here – with a full bonus set of work from related Jerry Cole Groups who include The Generation Gap, T Swift & The Electric Bag, and The Projection Company. 21 tracks in all – with titles that include "A Love Built On Sand", "I Said She Said Ah Cid", "Tomorrow", "Sure Listic", "Fools Luck", "What's Your Bag", "Boil The Kettle", "Expo In Sound", "Light Show", "That's How It Is", "Sock It My Way", and "Sippin & Trippin".

Apricot Music Pit BandJazzmania ... LP
Orion, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $24.99
This is a nice album of funky jazz dance tracks, cut for the tiny Orion label, which specialized in musical themes for dance arrangements by Gus Giordano. The tracks on here are short, hard, and funky – and most of them are covers, redone with a tight groove just right for a jazz dance scene, or maybe for sampling! Titles include "Mighty Mighty", "Makin It", "Dynomite", a funky version of "Jaws", and a nice 70's electric take on "Peter Gunn". Nice stuff, and similar to a rare sound library recording!

Beautiful work from the Art Ensemble – and one of their undisputed classics! The record features some of the most perfectly realized moments the band ever cut to wax, with a blend of whimsical multi-instrumental improvisation, and a strong sense of the spiritual tradition in jazz. The album features one long piece – "Reese & The Smooth Ones" – and it's a stunning array of spontanteous instrumentation, with a jagged sound that never stops reinventing itself!

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoThird Decade ... LP
ECM, 1985. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A surprisingly great little album – recorded on the occasion of the Ensemble's third decade in music, and a record that sounds a lot better than we remember! At the time of release, we kind of "pooh poohed" this one because of its divergence from some of the group's other styles – some tracks are straighter, more composed, and less improvised; others use a larger sound palette, and go for themes that are almost sentimental and nostalgic at times. Yet somehow, going back to this one, we're stunned at how interesting we find the whole thing – as each track seems to offer up a new surprise, and the series of musical visions expressed shows how much the group had grown during their time together. Includes the wonderful "Prayer For Jimbo Kwesi", the percussive jammer "Third Decade", the sonorously-wonderful "Bell Piece", and the tracks "Walking In The Moonlight", "Zero", and "Funky AECO".

✨✧ Maki AsakawaMaki Asakawa ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Haunting music from Japanese singer Maki Asakawa – every bit as smoky and soulful as you might guess from her image on the cover! These tracks are mostly sung in Japanese, but draw a very strong inspiration from American torch sounds of the 40s and 50s – a moody, late nite approach that's got a very universal appeal, even if you can't understand the language – and which is filled with an undeniable sense of melancholy right from the first note! The style is partly jazz, but also moves into some groovier modes of the period too – traces of psych at some points, mod European-styled arrangements at others, and even a few funky currents that come off surprisingly well. The package is wonderful – a great introduction to Maki's most classic music, featuring a well-chosen array of tracks, and nice liner notes by Alan Cummings. Titles include "Blue Spirit Blues", "Govinda", "Nemuru No Ga Kowai", "Uramado", "Kamome", "Gogo", "Hikkoshi", "Konna Funi Sugite Iku No Nara", "Yuki Ga Furu", and "Zenkamono Na Christmas".

✨✧ Roy AyersTear To A Smile ... LP
Polydor, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the best early soul albums by Roy Ayers! Roy's working here with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Edwin Birdsong, William Allen, Harry Whitaker, and other hip players – a perfect crew to forge Roy's unique blend of jazz and soul. This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out in this mode – moving more fully away from funky jazz, into a ream of vocal tracks that would make him one of the most unique artists of the 70s. This mid 70s period of Roy's career was remarkably fertile, creatively as well as for sheer productivity – and Tears To A Smile is one of them that shows some the most artistic growth, and also a deeper sense of soul! Features righteous cuts like "2000 Black", "Ebony Blaze", "Time & Space", and "A Tear To A Smile" – plus the mellow "Magic Lady", and a great remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "That's The Way Of The World". LP, Vinyl record album
