Roland P YoungHearsay/I-Land ... LP
Flow Chart/Palto Flats, 1984/1987. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Roland P Young is reclining on the cover, in an image that's almost a sketch for a major label release by one of the UK singers of the new romantic years – and at some level, that's almost the vibe for the entire set here – a nicely lean take on more popular modes of the time, delivered with plenty of craft and charm from this underground artist! Roland's not afraid to serve up a catchy hook and go for a tune that could cross over big – but the lean production of the record gives the whole thing a vibe that's more in the territory of the cold wave scene – although Young is a lot warmer at the core. Some cuts feature additional vocals from Risa Young – and the LP features the rare EP releases I-Land and Hearsay – with titles that include "Victim", "Go Away", "Don't Make Me Wait", "Don't Ever Take Your Love Away", "It Hurts So Bad", "Different Package", and "Edge Of Disaster".

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterAfro Blue ... LP
Trio/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest jazz vocal albums of all time – and one of the first true moments of genius from a young Dee Dee Bridgewater! The album's a Japanese only release (proof that they're always hipper to our jazz artists than we are!) – and it features Dee Dee singing material that's quite different than her later R&B-inflected sides from the late 70s – very soaring and spiritual work, delivered in a way that set a whole new standard for jazz at the time! Backing is by a small combo with brothers Ron and Cecil Bridgewater, plus Roland Hanna on acoustic and electric piano, George Mraz on bass, and Motohiko Hino on drums and percussion – but the star of the set is always Dee Dee, who sparkles beautifully on the album's classic versions of "Afro Blue" and "Little B's Poem" – both of which have been redone by many other singers over the years. Other great cuts include "People Make The World Go Round", "Love From The Sun", and "Love Vibrations". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Infinite SoundContemporary African-Amerikan Music ... LP
Arch/Aguirre (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real standout from the 70s spiritual jazz scene – and that's saying a lot, given how many outstanding records that scene gave us over the years! The group's got a very interesting approach – a trio lineup, with fantastic work on bass from Glenn Howell – who you might know from later guitar work – mixed with clarinet and other reeds from Roland Young, and these amazing vocals from Aisha Kahlil – a singer with a very freewheeling approach! Kahlil's like nobody we can really think of – almost more instrumental in approach than vocal, which mixes wonderfully with the clarinets, alto, and soprano saxes used by Young. And Howell's basslines have a depth that really holds things together – even when the other artists are relatively unbridled in their creation! There's also a bit of percussion on the record, handled by all group members – and titles include "Do It All", "Stagflation", "The Ocean Moves Primitively", "Spanish Tale", "Synthetic Variation", and "Homeland Rhythm Cycles".
