Wayne FontanaWayne One (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fontana/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 16.99
Wayne Fontana without The Mindbenders – and sounding really cool, really groovy, and a like a completely different singer than before! A big part of the credit for the record might go to Les Reed – who sets up that great Fontana vocal style with modes that are jazzier than before, and which also echo other mod currents on the London scene – mixing in familiar American standards and soul tunes with a more swinging 60s style – which gives the whole thing the charms of similar work at the time by Alan Price or Georgie Fame! The whole thing's great – a real revelation – and titles include "It Was Easier To Hurt Her", "Please Stop The Wedding", "My Friend & I", "Star Of Eastern Street", "Internal Circle", and "Perfidia". 2CD set features 22 more fantastic tracks – all excellent solo singles that continue the trend of the album – titles that include "Dayton Ohio 1903", "Charlie Cass", "Pamela Pamela", "Storybook Children", "Waiting For A Break In The Clouds", "24 Sycamore", "The Sun's So Hot Today", "The Impossible Years", and "Mind Excursion".

Tubby HayesComplete Fontana Albums 1961 to 1969 (13CD set) ... CD
Fontana/Universal (UK), 1960s. New Copy 13CDs ... $99.99
An amazing collection of music – the legendary Fontana Records run of albums by tenor giant Tubby Hayes – a key player on the UK bop scene of the 50s, but one who took off in all these great new directions with these classic albums for the Fontana label in the following decade! The package features twelve full albums done by Tubby as a leader – all newly remastered by Gearbox, and packaged here with bonus material that was not on previous reissues – a number of alternate takes across the entire Fontana catalog! Each album comes in an LP-styled jacket with original cover art, save two, which are combined – and albums include Tubbs, Tubbs In New York, Palladium Jazz Date, Equation In Rhythm, Down In The Village, Late Spot At Scotts, Tubbs Tours, Return Visit, 100% Proof, Mexican Green, The Orchestra, and the 2CD version of the newly-discovered Grits, Beans, and Greens. There's a big booklet of notes, too, with rare photos and other images – and the whole package is wonderful throughout! CD

Tubby HayesGrits, Beans, & Greens – The Lost Fontana Studio Session 1969 ... CD
Fontana/Universal (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $19.99 21.99
A long-lost album from one of our favorite jazz talents of all time – British tenor legend Tubby Hayes, a player we'd easily place on a short list with giants like Dexter Gordon or Sonny Rollins! Like both of those players, Hayes has an incredible talent for longform solos that never lose their fire, direction, or imagination – a quality that emerges here maybe even more strongly than on some of the records that preceded it – as Hayes works with just a quartet, on long tracks that are really dominated by both his great sound, and the strong contributions of pianist Mike Pyne – an equal star on the set! At a time when British jazz was going for a lot of new recording modes, crossover styles, and other gimmicks, the whole thing is a back to basics record for Tubby – but also one that shows just how much he's grown as a soloist in just a few short years – really on fire, as the tenor is driven strongly by the efforts of Ron Mathewson on bass and Spike Wells on drums, completing a great quartet who really get the energy of their leader. Titles include a great version of the Duke Pearson tune "You Know I Care", a lovely take on "Where Am I Going", and the Hayes originals "For Members Only", "Rumpus", and "Grits Beans & Greens". Fantastic stuff – long overdue, and instantly a key addition to the Tubby Hayes Fontana catalog of the 60s! CD

Pedro BikerEvergreens In Danish Design ... LP
Fontana (Denmark), 1963. Very Good+ ... $34.99
A rare 60s session from European vocalist Pedro Biker – singing here in English with backing by a very cool combo that includes Sahib Shihab! The sound is tighter and a bit more groovy than most other American male vocal sides from the time – a groove that's often snapping, swinging, and sometimes slightly modal – thanks to sharp rhythm from Bent Axen on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Bjarne Rostvold on drums. Sahib is probably the best player, though – and his saxophone work here really helps color in the tunes nicely – with a slightly modern sound that pushes a nice edge into the record! Titles include "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "Willow Weep For Me", "Just In Time", "Green Dolphin Street", "Stella By Starlight", and "Everything Happens To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisAscenseur Pour L'Echafaud ... CD
Fontana, 1958. Used ... $6.99
One of our favorite-ever Miles Davis albums – and a groundbreaking soundtrack that forever changed the way that jazz music was used in film! According to legend, the sounds here were recorded by Miles on a hot Paris night – late in the studio, after a live performance – in a very intimate setting that had he and the combo creating these little poetic passages along with the action in the film! In addition to sublime and moody muted trumpet from Miles – the small group also features tremendous tenor work from the great Barney Wilen – a French modernist who's at the height of his powers – and beautiful bass from Pierre Michelot, whose rich tones really frame the whole proceedings. The rest of the group features bop pianist Rene Urtreger and American drummer Kenny Clarke – but the real charm comes from the interplay between Wilen, Davis, and Michelo. Titles include "Florence Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "L'Assassinat De Carla", "Diner Au Motel", "Evasion De Julien", "Nuit Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "Le Petit Bal", "Au Bar Du Petit Bac" and "Sur L'Autoroute". This CD version restores the original 10 track lineup of the soundtrack, without any additional material. CD

Fontana, 1964. Used ... $4.99
A fitting title for a great album – Eric Dolphy's last live recording, performed on June 2, 1964, with a trio of youngsters that included two of the greatest names in European avant garde jazz – Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink! The sound is jagged and a bit free – showing the way towards even greater innovations that might have marked Dolphy's 60s years, had he not been taken from us so quickly! The album's filled with beautiful Dolphy playing in his late mode – on alto, flute, and bass clarinet – and tracks include "The Madrig Speaks, The Panther Walks", "Miss Ann", and "Hypochristmutreefuz".

Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte BardotBonnie & Clyde (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fontana (France), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An incredible collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot – one of Serge's first duet albums ever – and a gem all the way through! In the year before he cut "Je T'aime Moi Non Plus" with Jane Birkin, Serge recorded this great album with Brigitte Bardot in which he worked out many of the same ideas. The album is probably best known for the track "Bonnie & Clyde" – which has been sampled to great fame over the years – but there's loads of other great tracks on here, with a mix of styles that joins Serge's jazzy years with his softcore 70s work – very cool, very groovy, and years ahead of its time. Some tracks are duets, and some are sung individually by Serge or Brigitte, but they're all great, and titles include "Intoxicated Man", "L'eau A La Bouche", "Un Jour Comme Un Autre", "Comic Strip", and more! Arrangements by Alain Gourager, Michel Colombier, and Claude Bolling – and the cover's got a great shot of Serge & BB as Bonnie & Clyde! LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent album – and one of Joe Henderson's boldest sets from the early 70s! The record features Joe working with a hip group of young Japanese players that includes Terumasa Hino on trumpet and Masabumi Kikuchi on piano and electric piano – and the sextet format of the session stretches way past Joe's other Japanese recording from the time, which was issued in the US on Milestone. This one features very long tracks, with tremendous intensity from both the group and Joe, who's got a real edginess to his playing here. Includes a version of "So What", plus the originals "Sunrise In Tokyo" and "Get Magic Again". CD

Fontana, 1963. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Searing work from the budding New York avant scene of the 60s – material that was some of the first to explode out of the city's new world of jazz – even though it only saw initial release overseas! The 1963 recording even predates the wave of groundbreaking ESP albums – and features a fantastic quintet with Archie Shepp on tenor, Don Cherry on trumpet, John Tchicai on alto, Don Moore on bass, and JC Moses on drums! The vibe is a bit like Shepp's initial work for Impulse – but also a bit more open and improvised, too – with a vibe that shows that even before the ESP label showed up to document the scene, masters like Shepp and company were already making amazing things happen. Titles include "Consequences", "Trio", "Rufus", "Sound Barrier", and "Wo Wo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Graham CollierDown Another Road/Songs For My Father/Mosaics ... CD
Fontana/Philips/BGO (UK), 1969/1970/1971. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
3 incredible albums from the British jazz scene at the end of the 60s – all together in one 2CD package! Down Another Road is incredible work from one of England's greatest jazz talents – bassist Graham Collier, a player with an amazing ability to absorb a lot of the modern and progressive influences of his jazz generation – but all without succumbing to the same indulgences as them – a fact which resulted in a razor-sharp style that forged some of the freshest jazz ever to come out of the UK. This 1969 album is a masterpiece – filled with a modal groove and a strident searching theme, yet also as tight and grooving as most of the best Blue Note sessions from the same time. Harry Beckett's on trumpet, Nick Evans is on trombone, John Marshall plays drums, and Stan Sulzmann handles the reeds. Tracks include "Down Another Road", "Danish Blue", "The Barley Mow", and "Aberdeen Angus". Songs For My Father is a masterpiece of modernist soul jazz, with a sound that recalls the best late Blue Note work by Lee Morgan or Hank Mobley. Alan Wakeman's tenor is perfectly pitched, and searingly searching; Harry Beckett's trumpet is round, lyrical, and filled with soul; and the piano of John Taylor comps along in chunky modal grooves that make the whole album fall together brilliantly. Tracks include "Song One", "Song Two", "Song Three", etc – and they're all fantastic! Mosaics is a wonderfully searching session – filled with warm McCoy Tyner-esque modal moments, and searing post-Coltrane solos! The album comprises one long piece – Collier's "Mosaics" – performed live by a group that includes Alan Wakeman on tenor and soprano, Harry Beckett on trumpet, and Geoff Castle on piano. "Mosaics" has that amazing mid 60s Coltrane quality of going out in a spiritual kind of way – yet always returning to the groove, never getting too free, and always remaining firmly focused on the direction ahead. All players are great, and the record crackles with the intensity of a classic session on Impulse! CD

Hayes is at the prime of his form here, and he wails on tenor, soprano, and vibes – along with his great quintet that included Gordon Beck and Jimmy Deuchar. The set's fantastic, and the kind of album that you'd swear was on Blue Note, if you didn't hear a British voice announcing the tracks – and the energy and vitality of the group is apparent on every track – working with an intensity that rivals the best work on American labels at the time! Tracks include "Yeah!", "Half A Sawbuck", and "The Sausage Scraper". CD

One of the first Fontana albums by British tenor giant Tubby Hayes – and a well-rounded session with many great elements! About half the tracks feature Tubby on tenor, with a quartet that includes Terry Shannon, Jeff Clyne, and Bill Eyden – in the hard-hitting bop style of his earlier work on Tempo. Another few tracks feature that group expanded by a larger lineup of added horn players – for a searing sound that has Tubby soloing strongly over the top! And the last few feature a slightly large group with Tubby on vibes – showing that he's equally great on that instrument as he is on his horn. Strong all the way through, and with tracks that include "The Late One", "Love Walked In", "Tubbsville", "RTH", and "Wonderful Wonderful". CD

✨✧ Tubby Hayes & Jack CostanzoEquation In Rhythm ... CD
Fontana (UK), 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking set of Latin Jazz from the early 60s – and a Trans-Atlantic one as well! The album's a rare set by American percussion Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo – recorded in London, with help from some of that city's great jazz players at the time. The feel of the material is a bit similar to some of Costanzo's American work for Liberty and Atlantic at the time – but also has a style that's freer, and more exotic – steeped in the cross-cultural vibe of the post-colonial London scene of the time. Most tracks feature a larger group led by Costanzo, with breakout solo performances that include trumpet by Shake Keane, drums by Phil Seaman, and flute by "Little Jesus" – who is most likely West Indian/Brit Jazz legend Harold McNair, as we'd certainly guess from his very soulful solo work! A few other tracks have Costanzo playing with the larger Tubby Hayes group – hitting a modal jazz groove that's right up there with Hayes' own great work of the time, and which is as hip as anything coming out of the states at the time. There's a wonderful feel throughout the session – otherworldly, almost – with far more than just the combination of Latin jazz and British influences that you'd guess from the cover! Titles include "Southern Suite", "Lament For Cello", "Semliki Torrent", "Question & Answer", "Tribal Supoena", and "Bongo Montuno". CD

Side one features 10 tracks from Miles' amazing soundtrack to the film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud – with excellent work by French players Barney Wilen, Rene Urtreger, and Pierre Michelot, on haunting moody tracks like "Generique", "Lassassinat De Carala", "Au Bar Du Petit Bac", and "Dinner Au Motel". Great stuff – and with a wonderful sound that's like no other Miles album! Side 2 is equally great – as it features 3 classic sextet tunes – "On Green Dolphin Street", "Put Your Little Foot Right Out", and "Stella By Starlight" –peformed with Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, and Bill Evans in that amazing Kind Of Blue mode of perfection. Truly one of our favorite albums of all time! CD

✨✧ Scott Walker & The Walker BrothersNo Regrets – The Best Of Scott Walker & the Walker Brothers 1965 to 1976 (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Fontana (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A great overview of one of the greatest 60s groups to ever record on the UK scene – the legendary Walker Brothers, who then spun off Scott Walker as a solo act – then reformed briefly for a few more records in the 70s! Scott Walker's solo work has become the stuff of legend over the decades – really transformative sounds that took a standard pop mode, and created this new level of mature, masculine expression – as you'll hear here on tunes that include "Lights Of Cincinnati", "Jackie", "If You Go Away", "Boy Child", "Joanna", and "Montague Terrace In Blue". But the Walker Brothers themselves were pretty darn great – and record in this unusual British variant on styles that the Brill Building songwriters and producers like Phil Spector were using for American soul – spun out here on titles that include "My Ship Is Comin In", "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "Another Tear Falls", "Stay With Me Baby", "First Love Never Dies", "Walking In The Rain", "You Don't Have To Tell Me", "Love Her", "We're All Alone", and the great soundtrack theme "Deadlier Than The Male", and their mid 70s hit version of "No Regrets".

John Cage & David TudorIndeterminacy – New Aspect Of Form In Instrumental & Electronic Music ... CD
Folkways, 1959. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.98
One of the strangest albums ever from John Cage – but one of the most compelling too – and a record that really gets at the larger person behind his incredible music! The album has a very spare format – and features John Cage reading 90 stories – all short, spoken bits that are woven with Cage's theories on art, music, chance, and existence – backed by music from David Tudor, who plays piano passages from Cage's "Concert For Piano & Orchestra" and tape sections from the classic "Fontana Mix". Cage's voice alone is worth the price of admission – especially on some of the more autobiographical sections! CD

John Dankworth & Cleo LaineI Hear Music – A Celebration Of Their Life & Work (4CD box set) ... CD
Salvo (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $11.99 36.99
A treasure trove of work from the team of John Dankworth and Cleo Laine – quite possibly the Lord and Lady of British jazz, given the scope of their work over the past 50 years! The 4CD set presents a wonderful range of music from both artists – and includes solo material from John, vocal sides from Cleo, and even some later collaborations that include family members who sprang from the pair's romantic union. CD 1 features The Early Days, a host of John Dankworth jazz recordings from the 40s and 50s; CD 2 features John Big Band & The Movies, a collection of Dankworth's great 60s and 70s recordings for EMI, Fontana, Philips, and RCA; CD 3 is Focus On Cleo, with vocal jazz performances by Laine from the 60s, 70s, and 80s; and CD 4 is titled Family Affair, and includes 90s material from the Alec & John Dankworth Big Band, plus more vocal material from Cleo! The whole thing comes with a huge booklet with over 60 pages of notes and photos – and the 4CD set features a whopping 73 tracks in all. CD

Blossom DearieBlossom Dearie Sings ... LP
Daffodil, 1973. Near Mint- ... $39.99
After some great records on Verve, Capitol, and Fontana, Blossom made a surprising move and started up her own small label – issuing recordings herself, and selling them to the small but dedicated market who continued to come to her live shows, and support her work even as vocal jazz was disappearing from the music scene in the 70s. The set was produced by Bob Dorough in 1973, with a wonderful choice of tunes, and includes some great lesser-known numbers that get past the standards that Blossom was so often forced to record for bigger labels – and the instrumentation on most tracks is gentle piano trio, with some great electric keys on a number of tracks. Titles include "Home", "I'm Shadowing You", "Saving My Feeling For You", "Flame To Fire" and "You Have Lived In Autumn". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a bumped corner with a small split at the top right, in nice shape otherwise.)

Tubby HayesNight & Day ... CD
Candid (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Pretty great work from Tubby Hayes – even if the sound quality is sometimes a bit "live"! Tubby's one of our favorite tenor players ever, and he really shines in this set of live recordings from the years 1963 to 1965 – cut when Tubby was really opening up his sound a lot, past the Sonny Rollins-influenced bop mode of the late 50s, into a yearning searching tone that's hardly been matched on the instrument. The 5 tracks in the set all feature small groups of Brit players – including Terry Shannon, Jimmy Deuchar, Phil Seamen, and Allan Ganley, all frequent partners of Hayes – and although the fidelity isn't as great as you might get in the studio, Hayes' solos are excellent throughout, going on for a very long time, and at a quality level to match his classic Fontana recordings from the same era. Titles include "Night & Day", "The Simple Waltz", "Half A Sawbuck", and "I'm Old Fashioned". CD

Most titles were originally only issued on 78s, and titles include "Moten Stomp", "Perdido", "Celestial Blues", "Teressita", "This Is New", "Dandy Lion", "New Golden Wedding", and "Blue Flame". CD

✨✧ Karin Krog/Enrico Rava/Miriam KleinSwiss Radio Days Vol 26 – Jazz Live Trio With Guests ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1972/1974/1978. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Three hip European jazz talents from the 70s – all working here in rare performances from the Jazz Live Trio! The first half of the set features wonderful vocals from Karin Krog – very open and free, at a level that's right up there with her hippest studio sides of the 70s – although maybe not as totally abstract as some of the mellower ones – and instead very far-reaching and experimental, in ways that make this recording one of her most striking of the time! The group's driven by great piano from Klaus Koenig – and titles include "Fontana Barberini", "Sing Me Softly Of The Blues", "Nightmare", and "Lament". Next is a different set of vocals from Miriam Klein – an overlooked German singer from the time, and one with a voice that has a lot of Billie Holiday elements overall. The small group setting is perfect for the mood of the material – and for Klein's presentation – and titles include "Little Waltz", "Come Rain Come Shine", "I Love My Man", and "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen". And last, but not least, trumpeter Enrico Rava really takes off – blowing on a long "Improvised Sequence" with the trio – stretching out for 15 minutes, and hitting some of his best bold tones of the time!

Joe Meek/Pierre Boulez/Luc FerrariI Hear A New World – The Pioneers Of Electronic Music (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
A really cool little package – one that brings space age sounds from both the world of mainstream pop, and the farther reaches of electronic music composition in the postwar years! The core of CD1 is the groundbreaking album I Hear A New World by Joe Meek – presented here both in the "restored" version that was first issued by RPM in 1991, and the original unreleased tapes from 1960. The whole record is like The Ventures meeting space aliens – and Joe Meek composed and conceived the incredible 60s session of strange space-age instrumentals – one that mixes instrumental surf-flavored guitars with crazy sound effects and production techniques, for an out-of-this-world batch of tracks that's like nothing else we can think of! Tracks include "Glob Waterfall", "I Hear A New World", "Orbit Around The Moon", "March Of The Dribcots", and "Valley Of The Saroos". CD1 also features 11 more weird electronic tracks from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – and from Ray Cathode. Then CD2 and CD3 move into the darker corners of experimental electronics and musique concrete – with works that include "Dripsody" by Hugh Le Caine, "Syncopation" by Tom Dissevelt, "Timbres Durees" by Olivier Messiaen, "Poeme Electronique" by Edgard Varese, "The Innocents" by Daphne Oram, "Fontana Mix" by John Cage, "Visage V (parts 1, 2, & 3)" by Luc Ferrari, "Musica Su Due Dimensioni" by Bruno Maderna, "Deux Etudes De Musique Concrete For Magnetic Tape" by Pierre Boulez, "Fantasy In Space" by Otto Luening, and "Piece For Tape Recorder" by Vladimir Ussachevsky.

Michael RotherSterntaler ... CD
Gronland (Germany), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A pretty nice left turn from Krautrock pioneer Michael Rother – who veers from the more outwardly lumbering sound of his earlier Flammende Herzen LP into a tighter, even more melodic instrumental sound on Sterntaler! This album indeed shares some of the traits of Rother's earlier partners in Kraftwerk – particularly the gliding atmosphere the Autobahn album – not to mention Rother's earlier work with Neu! That said, Rother does his own thing with a bit more of an anthemic quality that really manages to tug at your emotions – also with a little more of a reliance on traditional rock & roll instrumentation behind the soaring keyboards! Titles include "Sterntaler", "Blauer Regen", "Stromlinien", "Sonnenrad", "Fontana Di Luna", "Orchestrion". CD

The group were – and are – the stuff of legend – virtually the blueprint for a key strain of avant jazz to come, from the ESP years of the New York scene, to the loft jazz and European scenes to follow – with a killer lineup that features Archie Shepp on tenor, Don Cherry on trumpet, John Tchicai on alto, Don Moore on bass, and JC Moses on drums! The concert features three long tracks – each a balance between structure and improvisation – and titles include "Emotions", "Monk's Mood", and "Consequences". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (3CD set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1966. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest soundtracks of the 60s – presented here in a massive package that brings forth a wealth of never-reissued music! Piero Piccioni really hit his stride for the music to this film that was directed by its star – the effervescent Alberto Sordi – a fantastic send-up on the London scene of the time, set to a range of modly romping tunes! Piccioni handled the main music – often with loads of great piano and organ lines – but there's also some great vocal moments too, sung by Lydia MacDonald, Julie Rogers, and even Sordi – and the record also features a few touches from I Cantori Moderni, and a bit of music from Ennio Morricone too. Titles include the wonderful "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in London – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me". Titles include a few versions of "Fontana" and "Richmond", plus "Ascot Dream", "Magic Castle", "Tango Walk", "Drag Beat", "This Is Life", "Palace Parade March", "Babylon, I'm Coming", and "His Dream Has Come True". 3CD set features the full original album in both mono and stereo – plus 71 bonus tracks from the film score!
