Paul WeinerSpirale (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Electrecord/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
A very obscure player from the Romanian scene of the 70s – an acoustic pianist, but one who plays with the flow of a electric keyboardist – really opening up on the longer tracks on this rare album, with an especially great sense of his overall sound! Most numbers have just a core trio, but really sparkle with this special sort of magic – a sensibility that's quite different than most acoustic piano work of the time – even on the then-inventive European scene. Things get even better when a bit of flute comes in from Liviu Butoi – whose lyrical lines only deepen the soul of the record – and titles include "Plutire"", "Colinda", "Cautari", "Blues Ul Trenului", "Spirale", and "Reportajul Timpului".

✨✧ Manolo JuarezTrio Juarez + 2 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful music from Argentine pianist Manolo Juarez – a set hat doesn't just have his trio augmented by the two elements promised in the title – but by a shifting array of sounds from guitar, vibes, quena, and even a bit of voice as well! The music is jazz, but with lots of Argentine touches as well – not really tango, but echos of older folkloric inspiration which come through in a really beautiful way – almost like some of Charlie Haden's South American inspirations, or elements from the Latin America chapter dates from Gato Barbieri – but much more focused and stripped-down to their core. The sound is wonderful – very unique – and titles include "Cancionera", "La Equivoca", "Loca De Amor", "La Bacha", "Luna Tucumana", "La Telesita", and "Vidalita De La Mama". CD

✨✧ Noel McGhie & Space SpiesTrapeze (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Disques D'Esperance/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soulful treasure from 70s France – funky fusion at its best, played by drummer Noel McGhie and his legendary Space Spies combo! The group features some sweet electric piano on all the grooves – really skipping out with a light touch that steps around McGhie's tight drum work nicely – while reeds and trumpet blow with a tone that's open and exploratory – never too "out", but reaching for the skies with a real sense of spirit! The tracks are all quite long, and have a quality that's really hard to describe – easily on a par with the best American indie soul jazz of the time, but with a flavor that's also all their own! Titles include "Trapeze", "Dancer", "Ubet", "Mademoiselle Tulloch", and "Foregone Desillusion". CD
