✨✧ Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity ArkestraIntergalactic Thing (with download) ... LP
Roaratorio, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra – pulled from four different sessions recorded at the group's Philadelphia home in 1969 – and every bit as impressive as the Saturn Records material from the time! The recording quality is great – these aren't random snippets of sounds caught on a cassette – and Ra's really trying out some new ideas with the Arkestra – sometimes working in highly percussive modes that feel like a late 60s update of the exoticism of the group in their final Chicago years – sometimes bringing in more electric elements, as Ra himself plays both Farfisa and a Hohner clavinet – no piano at all! Other players include the mighty John Gilmore on tenor, Doug Williams on trumpet and "space dimension mellophone", Marshall Allen and Danny Davis on altos and flutes, Danny Ray Thompson on alto, James Jacson on percussion – and all other members of the group play percussion too – which makes for plenty of percussive moments! Notes are by Robert Campbell – the Sun Ra expert – and titles include "The Others From Another World", "Discipline Of The Pharoahs", "Latent Friends", "Moon Over Saturn", "Principles Of The Pharoahs", "Calling Out To Saturn", "Exotic Forest", "Do The Intergalactic Thing", and "Saturn Moon".

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyHip Harp/On A Minor Groove ... LP
Prestige/Doxy (Russia), Late 50s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
2 of Dorothy Ashby's classic Prestige sessions – back to back on one 2LP set! First up is material from Hip Harp – great stuff by the grooviest artist ever to play a harp! Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound. This set's got harp and flute in the lead, and features the tracks "Pawky", "Charmaine", "Jollity", and "Back Talk". On In A Minor Groove, Ashby swings with an other-wordly quality that's simply amazing, quite exotic, and very much in the camp of players like Yusef Lateef or Les Jazz Modes, who were trying similar experiments in jazz. This session features Dorothy in a quartet with the flute of Frank Wess, the bass of Herman Wright, and the drums of Roy Haynes, whose warm lyrical touches provide the perfect melodicism for the group. Titles include "Rascallity", "Bohemia After Dark", "Taboo", "Autumn In Rome", and "It's A Minor Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom Scott & The California DreamersHoneysuckle Breeze ... LP
Impulse/Get On Down, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
A beautifully groovy album from the early days of one of our favorite reed players! Tom Scott's tenor, alto and soprano saxes, plus some flute, are set amidst a very groovy group that includes percussion, guitar, keyboards, sitar, and even some occasional vocalizing – for a sound that's got a solid jazz base, but lots of groovy Now Sound flourishes! Scott's searing solos rip through the whole thing with a nice cool sound – an uncommonly sunny, beautifully grooving psych era Impulse set that's as sweet as can be! Scott's California Dreamers and other personnel include sitar player Bill Plummer, bass player Carol Kaye, percussionist Emil Richards, guitarist Glen Campbell and others – and the album's filled with great cuts like "Honeysuckle Breeze", "Naima", "Today", "North", "Blues For Hari", and "Deliver Me". Nice! LP, Vinyl record album
