Ze RamalhoAnos 70s (Demos/Ao Vivo No Rio De Janeiro/Ao Vivo Em Sao Paulo) (3CD set) ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $42.99
Rare material from this Brazilian musical legend of the 70s – two unreleased live concerts, and a full album of demo material – all of which stand in nice contrast to his more famous records of the time! The concerts are great – and show a rougher, raspier side of Ramalho – music that maybe even has a bit more psych around the edges, or perhaps that's just a trick of the production. The demos are very cool too – one set of tracks from 1976, one from 1977 – again both with a nicely rough current that almost puts his music in the folksier side of the Brazilian underground spectrum of the time. Live tracks include "A Noite Preta", "Avohai", "Vila Do Sossego", "Cha De Giz", "Voa Voa", "Admiravel Gado Novo", "Meninas De Albara", and "Mote Das Amplidoes". Demo tracks include "Fragil", "Jacarepagua Blues", "Jardim Das Acacias", and "Avohai". CD

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. Used ... $13.99
A sublime meeting of these four legendary Brazilian talents – singers and musicians we're not used to hearing in each others' company, but who feel here as if they've been working together for a lifetime! The approach is beautiful – as each singer also plays a bit of acoustic guitar – in a setting that has shifting voices and guitar parts cascading through a wonderful array of tunes – sometimes in ways that create very resonant harmonies, sometimes with a more isolated feel that's more in a classic bossa mode. There's a warmth and spontaneity to the music that really comes through – this is no staid meeting of top talents – and the whole thing's better than we even might have expected, and maybe even better than most recent albums by some of these artists too. Titles include "Favela", "Nega Dina", "Picotado", "Toada", "Voce Voce", "Sinha Sinho", "O Mais Que Perfeito", "Vapor Barato", "Catavento E Girassol", and "Cachaca Arvore E Bandeira". CD

Tom ZeCancoes Eroticas De Ninar ... CD
Circus (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
From the eyeball on the cover, right down to the sounds on the disc, Tom Ze once again blurs the boundaries between body and mind with his music – by giving us tunes that are playful and catchy, but also filled with madness and intelligence too! Ze's wit is as razor-sharp as ever, carried across here with instrumentation that's very much in the best modes of his later years – almost familiar, but always offbeat – as if Tom's turning Brazilian songforms inside out, in service of his lyrical wordplay. The album's definitely got some of the erotic bent hinted at in the title, but also has a lot more going on too – on titles that include "Por Baixo", "Arroz Lenda E Buque", "Descaracao Familiar", "Sexo", "Sobe Ni Mim", "Urgenica Didatica", and "Cade Mane".

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".

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

Circus (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully vivid work from Tom Ze – a set that's got all the quirkily unique energy of some of his classic sets – but which also seems to draw on some rootsier elements too! There's strong use of acoustic instrumentation on the record – especially acoustic guitar, often used alongside Ze's vocals, in a way that give them a folksier vibe – and rhythms often draw on more folkloric traditions than you'd usually hear from Tom – although with a presentation that's still as unusual and individual as you'd expect from this legendary figure in Brazilian music! There's even a bit of accordion in the mix at times – bringing some slight forro currents to the music – and titles include "Forrobodo Do Abece", "Como E O Nome Dela", "A Magica Do G", "Estrelas Sabem Voar", "Palavras Do Ar", and "Curiosidade".

Crazy stuff! This is the record with the famous cover of a marble balanced on an asshole (!) – and it further refines Tom Ze's distinctive approach to songwriting with an over the top approach that moves far beyond the experimentation of Tropicalia! The record is incredible, with a mix of amazing songs that piece together hard percussion, spare production, quirky guitar, and some of the strangest vocals ever recorded in Brazil. Includes the tracks "Complexo De Epico", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Dodo E Zeze", "Brigitte Bardot", and "O Riso E A Faca". LP, Vinyl record album

The debut album of this excellent Brazilian singer – an artist who was discovered by Ney Matogrosso, who presents him here on his own label – even though Ze Maria is clearly very much his own man too! The songs are mostly poetic tunes that evoke the northeast territory that is Maria's home – often with a warm current of acoustic guitar next to his beautiful vocals – nicely understated, but still extremely powerful wrapped around his well-penned words. Arrangements and production are by Rodrigo Campello – and titles include "Dois Passarinhos", "Por Amor", "Na Beira Da Praia", "Velho Passarinho", "Cade Voce", "Hey Hellen", and "Acorrentado". CD

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 BenEra Uma Vez A Banda Do Ze Pretinho – 1978 to 1981 (A Banda do Ze Pretinho/Salve Simpatia/Alo Alo Como Vai/Bem Vinda Amizade) (4CD set) ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99
Four albums from the second chapter in the career of Jorge Ben – packaged here in a single set, with a few bonus tracks too! First up is A Banda Do Ze Preinho – a record that's 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 onto the best 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. The production is nice and lean – with a core focus on Jorge's great voice, and the funky instrumentation of the band – which really lets the fantastic sound of the record come through strongly, without some of the heavier elements on some of Jorge's 80s records. The whole thing's great – and 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". Salve Simpatia is late 70s funky soul from Jorge Ben – a record that tightens up the sound a bit from his earlier years on Philips – but still keeps in all the core elements we love so much! The tracks bounce along with a tight samba soul approach that's built very much on Jorge's earlier experiments – handled with a bit more modern soul on the arrangements, but in a way that only makes the grooves come across more directly – in a style that's akin to some other Brazilian artists who were shifting more soul towards soul from other styles at the time – such as Marcos Valle and some of his contemporaries. Titles include "Salve Simpatia", "Ive Brussel", "Waldomiro Pena", "Adelita", "Occulatus Abis", and "Menina Crioula". Alo Alo Como Vai has Jorge working in a smoother vein than on his Philips sides, with the same sort of modern soul approach that Marcos Valle and other older Brazilian singers were using at the time. But since Jorge's always been a soulster from the start, the style works perfectly for his warm vocals and his keen talent for putting over a groove. Arrangements have kind of a brassy funky samba groove – and titles include "Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae", "Solitario Surfista", "Olha A Pipa", "Cae Cae Caetano", "Alo Alo, Como Vai?", and "A Cegohna Me Deixou Em Mardureira". Bem Vinda Amizade is an 80s groover with a sound that's a bit of a change from his 70s classics! The backings show Ben picking up some modern soul elements from the US scene of the time – but these are also mixed with some rougher, rhythmic styles that are definitely Brazilian – which makes for a really compelling blend – quite similar to the samba and soul mix of Jorge's 70s records, but tuned towards the ears of a different generation overall. Bits of boogie mix in to the groove nicely – and titles include "Katarina Katarina", "Para Que Digladiar", "Santa Clara Clareou", "O Diam Em Que O Sol Declarou O Seu Amor Pela Terra", "Lorraine", and "Luiz Wagner Guitarreiro". CD set features 3 bonus tracks – "Natal Brasileiro", "Waimea 55,000", and "Saci Perere". CD

A punky funky no wave classic from James White – working here under the name of The Contortions, in a manner that's very similar to his Off White album! The tunes dip, turn, and kind of groove with a mad sort of art school energy – shifting easily between fast and frenetic playing, and some more "out" jazz styled riffing. Most tracks have raw vocals, and titles include "Bedroom Athlete", "Twice Removed", "Roving Eye", "Anesthetic", "Contort Yourself", and "I Don't Want To Be Happy". LP, Vinyl record album

Aksak MaboulUn Peu De L'Ame Des Bandits ... LP
Crammed (Belgium), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... On February 16, 2018 (delayed)
One of our favorite mixing of modes from the old school – a tremendous second album from the legendary Aksak Maboul! The record mixes arty playfulness with some rootsier elements – bits of Eastern instrumentation, jazz, improvisation, and even some post-punk elements – all in a way that makes for one of the most creative recordings of its time – a set that easily provides key inspiration for more recent genre-crossing acts like this! There's a bit of Y or Ze Records whimsy at times – but the end result is much deeper, and much more compelling– as you'd expect from a group that features Fred Frith on guitar, Chris Cutler on drums, Marc Hollander and Michel Berkmans on reeds, and Denis Van Hecke on a range of cool cellos! Each tune has a slightly different flavor, but there's still a really unified feel to the record too – one of those European projects that comes together like nothing you'd hear from the US. Titles include "Geistige Nacht", "A Modern Lesson", "Palmiers En Pots", "Inoculating Rabies", "Cinema", and "Bosses De Crosses". LP, Vinyl record album

Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A drum-heavy set from Polish percussionist Czeslaw Bartkowski – mostly solo on most tracks, but with occasional accompaniment on trumpet, electric piano, and soprano sax on a few of the fuller numbers – plus some great funky big band arrangements at the end! The sound is often spare and moody, but also melodic – similar to some of Max Roach's solo percussion efforts – in that Bartkowski isn't too concerned with going too far out, or getting too free – just working drums and percussion within new modes in jazz! The last few tracks on the album flesh out the sound with fuller orchestrations from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – in a way that's almost funky at times – and other players on the record include Tomasz Szukalski, Tomasz Stanko, and Adam Makowicz. Titles include "Drums Dream", "FAO", "Druga Swobodna Etiuda", "Rozmowa Ze Sliwka Bez Pestek", "Good Times Bad Times", and "Lullaby For Tiny Chinamen". LP, Vinyl record album

The backings here are gentle and spare – usually just a bit of guitar, percussion, and other instrumentation – but mostly a focus on Batatinha's vocals in the lead. A few tunes have famous stars stepping in for a bit of vocals – including Caetano Veloso, Chico Buarque, Jussara Silveira, Gilberto Gil, and Maria Bethania – but to us, Batatinha's really the star of the set!

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".

Grupo UmUma Lenda Ao Vivo – Ao Vivo Na Fabrica ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2016. Used ... $11.99
It's been many years since we heard from Grupo Um – that especially inventive Brazilian combo who gave us some really great records at the start of the 80s! Yet the passage of years hasn't dimmed them at all – and this recent performance almost feels as if it could have been recorded right after their classic first two albums, with a similar far-reaching approach to electric jazz! These are the guys who really set the spark for a new wave of fusion experiments in Brazilian jazz in the 80s – the lineup Lelo Nazario on keyboards, Ze Eduardo Nazario on drums and percussion, and Mauro Senise on saxes and flutes – and all these many years later, they're still sharper than most of the younger players they inspired. The quintet have a way of stretching out and getting complex, but never in the noodly way of other fusion players who go off the deep end – and throughout, they also never let the electric instruments leave the plane of core acoustic spontaneity – which makes for a wonderful performance all the way through. Frank Herzberg plays acoustic bass, and Felix Wagner is on bass clarinet and keyboards – and titles include "Marcha Sobre A Cidade", "A Porta Do Sem Nexo", "Dala", "54754-P(4)-D(3)-0", "Sonhos Esquecidos", "Velho Mundo Novo", and "Fragmentum".

Now Again, 1970. Near Mint- ... $34.99
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".

Samba Meets Boogie WoogieSamba Meets Boogie Woogie ... CD
Adventure Music, 2008. Used ... $2.99
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".

Buda (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The third volume in Buda's superb Angola series chronicles one of the country's most potent musical eras! The tracks here were produced during a period of deep political uncertainty, as three different factions vied for power. A failed 1974 coup left many of the performers included on this great CD –Sofia Rosa, Urbano de Castro, David Ze, and Artur Nunes – dead and the music industry in tatters. But the artists live on through this astonishing work. The CD includes it's fare share of familiar Angolan forms like the jaunty sembe and the achingly beautiful lamento, but there's so much more – a bounty of sensual, slinking grooves embroidered with killer guitar work and soulful, understated singing. This presents a whole different side of African music. Tracks include "Otjikenlu Ya Yndunduma" by Gimba, "Tchi Kolona" by Duo Misoso, "Solo do Maqui" by Kisangela, "Lamento do Mae" by Os Jovens do Prenda, and "Manazinha" by Carlos Burity. CD

70s psychedelia from the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Brazil – incredible stuff that combines rawly percussive tropical sounds with a world of psychedelic creativity and possibilities – one of the best compilations ever put together by Mr Bongo! Lula Cortes was a pivotal figure in the scene and he's pretty well represented here, including his influential recordings with Ze Remalho. Even more exciting, though, is the stuff we've never been fortunate enough to hear before now – and there's a pretty good deal of it! The fusion of global psych and folk sounds into a distinctly Brazilian sound is nothing short of amazing – regional and traditional percussion underneath sitars, lutes, keyboards and more. It features songs by the great Lula Cortes & Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo & Alceu Valenca, Marconi Notaro, Flaviola E O Bando Do Sol and The Gentleman. 19 tracks in all: "Sorriso Delvagem" by The Gentlemen, "O Tempo" and "Desespero" by Flaviola E O Bando Do Sol, "Antropologica", "Maracatu" and "Fidelidade" by Marconi Notaro, "Mister Misterio", "Virgem Virginia" and more by Geraldo Azevedo & Alceu Valenca, "Bailado Das Muscarias" and "Maracas De Fogo" by Lula Cortes & Ze Ramalho, "Noite Preta" by Lula Cortes and more.

VariousSecao Ritmica – Instrumental Funk From 70s Brazil ... CD
Atemoya, 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
Fierce funk from 70s Brazil – tracks that easily challenge the same heavy vibe you'd know from American work in the funky 45 underground of the time, or even some of the bigger jazz funk releases of the decade! The artists here aren't inspired by the sound of bossa nova – and instead take keen inspiration from the American world of jazz and soul – which they then mix with occasional instrumental touches of their own region, and often use some wonderfully trippy production to put a really unique spin on the music! So even though these tracks are filled with heavy drums, riffing guitars, and killer keyboards – they've got a special sound that really sets them apart from the American music that first gave them inspiration – all of which makes for an incredibly fresh approach to funky styles. Titles include "Sultana" by Aquarius Band, "Eu Quero Levar Voce Pra Casa" by Ed Lincoln, "The King's Bounce" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Tio Macro" by Dom Salvador, "Kool & The Gang" by Cry Babies, "Metropole" by Cesar Mariano & CIA, "Rush" by Free Sound Orchestra, "Assalto" by Ze Rodrix, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, and "Tipo Africa" by Brazil Very Happy Band. Also includes "Big Splash" by Som Orlando Silveira, "Ju Ju Man" by Hot Stuff Band, "Batucada Tropical" by Jose Prates, "Bridge" by We, "The Name Of The Game" by Os Tremendoes, and "Papa Jimmy" by Guilherme Coutinho.

✨✧ Czeslaw BartkowskiDrums Dream ... CD
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A drum-heavy set from Polish percussionist Czeslaw Bartkowski – mostly solo on most tracks, but with occasional accompaniment on trumpet, electric piano, and soprano sax on a few of the fuller numbers – plus some great funky big band arrangements at the end! The sound is often spare and moody, but also melodic – similar to some of Max Roach's solo percussion efforts – in that Bartkowski isn't too concerned with going too far out, or getting too free – just working drums and percussion within new modes in jazz! The last few tracks on the album flesh out the sound with fuller orchestrations from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – in a way that's almost funky at times – and other players on the record include Tomasz Szukalski, Tomasz Stanko, and Adam Makowicz. Titles include "Drums Dream", "FAO", "Druga Swobodna Etiuda", "Rozmowa Ze Sliwka Bez Pestek", "Good Times Bad Times", and "Lullaby For Tiny Chinamen". CD

✨✧ Ian Dury & The BlockheadsDo It Yourself ... LP
Stiff, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the great ones from Ian Dury – a record that goes way beyond simple quirky rock, and explodes with some wonderful jazzy touches! The sound here is totally great – very much in the sway of Chaz Jankel's musical direction, and filled with great bits on sax, keyboards, and guitar that have a fair bit more warmth and soul than Dury's original records. There's actually less standout hits here – but that's ok, because the record has a really unified feel overall – strongly in the funky arty dancefloor mode that you might expect from some of the Ze Records camp. Titles include "Dance Of The Screamers", "Inbetweenies", "Quiet", "Sink My Boats", "Don't Ask Me", "This Is What We Find", and "Uneasy Sunny Day Hotsy Totsy". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing with printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ FunkapolitanFunkapolitan ... LP
CBS/Pavillion, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the lesser-remembered proto-funk groups of the new wave years – a British combo with a nice little bass-heavy groove and a strong penchant for catchy and straightforward tunes! The sound here isn't as experimental as that of the Ze Records scene in New York, but it shares a similar sense of playfulness and mix of jazzy instrumentation – strangely filtered through a bit more of a British new wave hook-heavy approach to the tunes. Tunes include the great conga-heavy "War", plus "Illusion", "Run Run Run", "In The Crime Of Live", "There It Is Again", and "Behold The Super Ace". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, in a blue foil cover, including the insert and a torn obi. Cover has a small smudge on front.)

✨✧ JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Also comes with a great book – detailing the album and its rescue from obscurity!)

✨✧ VariousAs 10 Mais Boogie Vol 1 – Serie Compactos 7" – A Collection Of Rare Brazilian 80s Compactos (180 gram gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
SDB Discos, Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare Brazilian funk from the early 80s – served up here on a range of tracks that originally appeared on Brazil's unique 7" compacto format at the time! The smaller records were the nation's equivalent to 12" singles up north – and most spun at 33rpm, which allowed more space for the sorts of boogie rhythms and funky flow taking place here! There's plenty of elements that echo the sound of 80s soul in the US – with the beats, keyboards, and electro elements you might expect – but as with Brazilian soul from the decade before, there's also plenty of cool homegrown touches too. Titles include "Estou Livre" by Tony Bizarro, "Velho Guerreiro" by Rubao Sabino, "Break Mandrake" by Electric Boogies, "Ve Se Me Esquese" by Tony Blue, "Ta Dando Mole Ze" by Cassiano, "Dance Com A Gente" by Let's Dance, "Ve Se Decide" by Tim Maia, "Macaco Pesado" by Newton Drinckwater, and "Super Amor" by Gaby Do Whiskadao. LP, Vinyl record album

The stompin never stops – and this tasty little volume is as heavy-hitting as the rest in the great series!

Eric AlexanderTemple Of Olympic Zeus ... CD
High Note, 2007. Used ... $5.99
A cheesy cover, but a rock-solid set of work from the mighty Eric Alexander – who seems to be stretching out even more here than before! Alexander's always been a hell of a straight ahead talent on the tenor, but here he's almost hitting a few more modern modes at times – not "out" in his soloing, but a bit more free thinking in the overall construction and execution of the tunes – willing to change things up a bit in the rhythms, and give the record even more freshness than we might have expected. Alexander's easily one of the greatest living talents in jazz recording today – and we're already huge fans of his work – but he's won us over even more with this set, and a few of the chances he takes on some of the tunes. The group's a well-matched batch of regulars – including Jim Rotondi on trumpet, David Hazeltine on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and titles include "The Temple Of Olympic Zeus", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Lucas Too", "Blues For David", "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life", "I'll Keep Loving You", and "Dave's System".

Lex De AzevedoSaturday's Warrior ... LP
Embryo, 1974. Very Good 2LP ... $1.99
A tripped-out little rock opera from Lex De Azevedo – post-Hair in both approach and spirit, with a jaunty approach to songwriting that certainly owes a lot to the MacDermot tradition! Many of the tunes have the vocals done in a chorus mode – one that creates a soaring, almost righteous sound – but which is also a bit hokey at times too. Instrumentation is mostly just keyboards, drum, and bass – and all tracks are vocal. Titles include "Zero Population", "Daddy Noise", "Brace Me Up", "Didn't We Love Him", "Sailing On", "Voices", and "Circle Of Our Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Han Bennink & Terrie ExZeng! ... CD
Terp (Netherlands), 2007. Used ... $7.99
Sharp, jagged and intuitive interplay from what a pair that works very well together – Dutch postpunk adventurer Terrie Ex of the The Ex – and improvistation jazz drums titan Han Bennik! Zeng doesn't pummel as much as you might be expecting, though they do make a might racket when the mood strikes. It's more dynamic than just visceral back & forth, and overall spare and efficient. Excellent! Titles include "Spikkel", "Zegnie", "Horstik", "Haraf!", "Snerk", "Radder", "Two Bruised Ribs", "Shelly" and "Pekel". CD
