VariousCherrystones Presents Critical Mass 2 – Hearts Of Champions (with bonus download) ... LP
Touch Sensitive (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99
A really great collection of work – put together by one of the all-time great crate diggers – the mighty Cherrystones, a man who's introduced us to more great music over the years than we might care to admit! The package focuses on unusual cuts from the early 80s scene – work that's maybe from the more experimental side of the post-punk years, but which also almost often has some sort of a groove – although one that goes way past some of the electro pop of the time! Rhythms are both acoustic and electronic – and some of these numbers feature great use of industrial-style percussion – non-drum instruments played in drum-like ways – and mixed with keyboards, guitars, and some occasional sinister-sounding vocals! Titles include "Some Times" by Flue, "Bowl Of Cherries" by The Mud Hutters, "Bled Dry" by A Primary Industry, "Night Architecture" by November Group, "Lady Run" by Concise, "Clip Eroclap" by Vitor Hublot, "Slow Love" by Die Form, "Hog Rhythm" by Paul Lemos, "Passage" by Logo Lotus, "Double Gates" by New Asia, "My Blues Is You (slow dub)" by Neon, and "Hey" by Konec.

Count BasieCount Basie & The Kansas City Three – For The Second Time ... LP
Pablo, 1975. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A Count Basie trio set – the second meeting of the Kansas City Three, a combo that features Ray Brown on bass an Louis Bellson on drums! Basie's really great here – out front, and moving with modes that are quite different than his fuller group sessions – surprisingly sensitive at points, even though still imbued with all of his trademark swing! Bellson's touch on the kit really helps – punctuating things, while never going too far at all – a nice punch, right when needed – and Ray Brown proves once again that he's just the right fit for just about any combo. Titles include "Racehorse", "Blues For Eric", "Draw", "Sandman", "If I Could Be With You For One Hour Tonight", and "I Surrender Dear". LP, Vinyl record album

Mallu MagalhaesPitanga ... CD
Sony (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $8.99
One of the loveliest singers we've heard from the Brazilian scene in years – working here in a set of gentle tunes with a hell of a lot of charm! Mallu Magalhaes has this raspy little quality in her voice – almost a Brazilian version of Charlotte Gainsbourg, but with a slightly warmer feel overall – one that's perfect for the album's mellow grooving numbers, served up in a blend of playful styles that moves from sonically-sensitive contemporary modes, back to a few with a slight bossa undercurrent. Marcelo Camelo produced the record, and his touch definitely helps guide the whole thing nicely – and titles include "Por Que Voce Faz Assim Comigo", "Sambinha Bom", "Cena", "Velha E Louca", "In The Morning", and "Highly Sensitive".

✨✧ Vi ReddBird Call (Solid State) ... LP
Solid State, 1963/1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of early 60s soulbop – and one of two rare albums ever cut by the obscure female alto player Vi Redd, one of the few women sax players of her generation to get recorded! The album's got an easygoing groove that's mighty nice – a touch of R&B at times, but not nearly as much as you'd hear on Redd's other record for Atlantic – thanks to a sensitive jazz-based presentation by a group that also features a young Roy Ayers on vibes, making his first-ever appearance on record! Other players include Herb Ellis on guitar and Russ Freeman on piano – plus Kansas Lawrence on trumpet, who's clearly a bigger-name player working under another name. Vi sings on the record, in addition to playing alto sax – in this laidback way that's a bit like Trudy Pitts – and although the record's billed as a tribute to Charlie Parker, it's got a lot more going on than that! Tracks include "Summertime", "Old Folks", "Just Friends", "Now's The Time", "Anthropology", and "Cool Blues Perhaps". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mel Torme & George ShearingVintage Year ... LP
Concord, 1987. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A key pairing of vocalist Mel Torme and pianist George Shearing – two aging jazz artists who really helped re-ignite each others' careers in the 80s! The format here takes Torme back to the best years of his jazz roots – and features spare backing from Shearing's trio, at a level that's intimate, but never too sleepy or prone with cliche. Shearing's touch on the keys is wonderfully sensitive – never just standard backing to a singer – and in a way, he brings out a new sense of depth in Torme's vocals, one that never showed itself so strongly, or so personally in the past. And best of all, at the time of this recording, the duo haven't yet lapsed into the cliches that would later mar their pairing – and instead really work together beautifully in a fresh sense of discovery and joy in each others' company. Titles include "The Midnight Sun", "Someday I'll Find You", "Whisper Not/Love Me Or Leave Me", "Since I Fell For You", "Out Of This World", and "Little Man You've Got The Blues".

✨✧ Paul BleyTouching (with bonus track) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Freedom/Muzak (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Prime modern work from the great Paul Bley – a pianist who was really expanding his sound at this time – to a level that would soon make him a legend around the globe! The European date is a great chance to hear Bley really opening things up – playing freely, with an amazing command of the keyboard – faster flurries of notes at times than you might hear on his 70s material, but with an equally sensitive ear for space and sound – all balanced by perfect work from Kent Carter on bass and Barry Altschul on drums! There's an instantly haunting quality to the music – which is all unique original material from Bley's scene – titles that include his own compositions Bley's "Pablo" and "Mazatlan", plus Annette Peacock's "Both" and "Cartoon", and Carla Bley's "Start". CD also features the bonus track "Closer" – another Carla Bley composition. CD

✨✧ David BowieHunky Dory ... LP
RCA, 1971. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the fuzzed-up and full-on guitars of Space Oddity or Man Who Sold the World – and often augmented with a bit of strings and softer touches that really bring out the humanity in the songs. The balance here is amazing – as is the fact that a few short years before, Bowie was singing "The Laughing Gnome", but is here one of the most sensitive songwriters of his generation. Tunes are quirky and personal, and titles include "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Life On Mars", "Kooks", and "Queen Bitch". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing with 4S/2S matrix. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some edge wear, a small sticker at the bottom right corner, and a small split in the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Perry ComoLightly Latin (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/SSJ (Japan), 1966. Used ... $29.99
One of the most sublime albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a set that definitely takes its Latin lightly, and instead really goes for the best sort of mellow side of the Como sound! There's definitely a few bossa touches in the mix – a bit of acoustic guitar or light percussion – but they're added in very sparely, and couched with a beautifully subtle wall of sound from arranger Nick Perito, who works here with a lot more understatement than on some other records. Como's vocals are very far from pop – and the album brings out his maturing style wonderfully with a spacious, soft-toned style of production. Titles include "Dindi", "Once I Loved", "Stay With Me", "How Insensitive", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Baia", and "Manha De Carnaval". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – including "Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps", "Little Boat", "Pardon My English", and "Happiness Comes Happiness Goes". CD

✨✧ Perry ComoLightly Latin/In Italy/Look To Your Heart/Seattle ... CD
BGO/RCA (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four late 60s gems from Perry Como – all records that really have him pushing beyond his pop style of the 50s! First up is Lightly Latin – one of the most sublime albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a set that definitely takes its Latin lightly, and instead really goes for the best sort of mellow side of the Como sound! There's definitely a few bossa touches in the mix – a bit of acoustic guitar or light percussion – but they're added in very sparely, and couched with a beautifully subtle wall of sound from arranger Nick Perito, who works here with a lot more understatement than on some other records. Como's vocals are very far from pop – and the album brings out his maturing style wonderfully with a spacious, soft-toned style of production. Titles include "Dindi", "Once I Loved", "Stay With Me", "How Insensitive", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Baia", and "Manha De Carnaval". Next is Perry Como In Italy – one of the most haunting albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a session recorded in Italy during the mid 60s – featuring arrangements by Nick Perito, and backing vocals by the Alessandro Alessandroni Singers! The tunes include a fair bit of older Italian numbers – some sung in the language of their origin, some in English translations that we've come to know on this side of the Atlantic – and Como takes them all with a sad-tinged style that makes the album one of his moodiest ever – a record that oozes melancholy with every song, and which has a late nite, heartbreaking appeal that goes beyond even the understanding of language. The set's a great one to convey the popularity of Italian work on the American market in the 60s – and Como carries off the session even better than some of the more likely singers on the scene during the period. Titles include "Souvenir D'Italie", "Forget Domani", "Anema E Core", "One Day Is Like Another", "Arrivederci Roma", "Oh Marie", and "E Lei". Look To Your Heart is the kind of record that moves so far beyond familiar pop vocalizations, it's almost like Perry's in a universe all by himself! The words seem to just be sneaking out of the singer's voice – these mutterings that are almost to himself, which makes his readings of the tunes feel even more personal than you might expect – even amidst larger backings from Nick Perito – like Como is off to the side of the room, ruminating on love lost and life lived! That quality comes through tremendously on the eerie "Father Of Girls" – a tune that's worth the price of admission alone – and other titles include "Try To Remember", "Look To Your Heart", "In These Crazy Times", "Sunrise Sunset", and "When You're In Love". Seattle is a record that has Perry Como taking on a bit of a country tinge at times – working with Chet Atkins production that almost seems as if the singer is trying to match the Dean Martin spirit of the late 60s, right down to phrasing that feels a bit like ol Dino himself! A few other cuts have more familiar Como modes, with backings by Nick Perito – and titles include the lively title cut "Seattle", plus "Happiness Comes Happiness Goes", "Together Forever", "Sunshine Wine", "Deep In Your Heart", "Hearts Will Be Hearts", "Turnaround", and "Beady Eyed Buzzard".

Jose Feliciano10 To 23 ... LP
RCA, 1969. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A groovy record from Jose – with his best kind of crossover feel! It's an unusual title – one that refers to the first track on the record, recorded by Jose Feliciano at age 10 – and the rest of the material included, done when Jose was 23 years old. It's a mixture of American soul, Latin roots, and Jose's own unique touches – that Feliciano blend of well-played acoustic guitar and super-sensitive vocals – all produced with a slightly airy feel that only adds to the mood of the tracks. Titles include "First Of May", "Windmills Of Your Mind", "Little Red Rooster", "Miss Otis Regrets", "She's A Woman", and "I've Gotta Get A Message To You". LP, Vinyl record album

GoblinLa Via Della Droga (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
BTF (Italy), 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
Very rare material from the legendary Goblin – originally written for an Italian cop thriller in 1977! The music ranks with some of the group's best thriller work – with many funky rock passages, plenty of nice keyboards, and lots of fuzzy guitar – but there's also a unique quality that really makes the record stand out, too – maybe some more sensitive passages that have slight Latin touches in the rhythms, and a wider sense of style than just the group's usual jamming – a very hip sound that links this one more to the bigger Italian cop/crime of the period, than some of the other Goblin horror material! In fact, we might well say that this is one of our favorite Goblin records – and one of the funkiest too. LP, Vinyl record album

Charles LloydNight In Copenhagen ... CD
Blue Note, 1983. Used ... $19.99
A great return to the limelight for reedman Charles Lloyd – heard here in one of his most open, expressive settings in years – with all the best exotic touches of his famous early years still very much intact! Lloyd plays tenor and flute, plus a bit of Chinese oboe as well – an instrument that really underscores some of the more inventive qualities in his music, and which works well with some of the modal energies in the set. The great Michel Perucciani makes a key appearance here on piano – and shades the tunes with a sensitive sound that also helps Lloyd find the new directions he'd take strongly in years to come – and the remaining group features Palle Danielsson on bass and Son Ship Theus on drums. Bobby McFerrin sings in a few spots, but at a level that's hipper than his hits – and titles include "Lotus Land", "Lady Day", "Of Course Of Course", "Night Blooming Jasmine", and "El Encanto". CD

Ennio MorriconeMilano Odia – La Polizia Non Puo Sparare (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $36.99
A beautifully sensitive Italian police soundtrack from the 70s – one scored by Ennio Morricone with a bit less of the funky bits of other cop scores of the time, and a nice mix of sad-tinged, personal styles! There's a fair bit of key Morricone touches here that resonate with his best other work of the time – spacious, almost stepping rhythms; dramatic isolated instrumentation, including a bit of off-key piano; and some warmer tones that soften some of the best moments, and keep them from being too cold or dark. The drama here is subtle, but effective – and the score's a real lost gem in the catalog of the maestro deserving wider attention! Titles include "Rapimento", "Raptus Omicida", "Milano Odia La Polizi Non Puo Sparare", and "I Conti Ora Tornano". First-ever full issue of the score – as only a few cuts were only ever issued before on a single! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Daahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl".

✨✧ Elis ReginaElis Regina in London ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British singers at the time – so the sound's a bit different than Elis' Brazilian records, too. Knight's quite sensitive to Regina's way of interpreting a tune – and he nicely follows the soaring, jazzy vibe that Roberto Menescal had given her at home. But the groove's also a bit more open and fluid too – with some slight Brit Easy touches that Really send the whole album home! Titles include a great version of "Upa Neguinho", plus "O Barquinho", "Zazueira", "Giro", "A Volta", "Corrida De Jangada", "Watch What Happens", and "Wave". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sly & The Family StoneSmall Talk ... LP
Epic, 1974. Good ... Out Of Stock
Sly's still doing pretty nice for himself in 1974 – with a sound that's perhaps a bit warmer than on the early records, but still nice and soulful – and peppered with a good dose of funk! The groove is really great on the set – bubbling with a more "deep down" feel than the skittish funk of the first few records, and breaking out on some great soul numbers that show Sly to be an even better singer than before – touchingly sensitive at times, in a really beautiful way! Titles include "Loose Booty", which has a wonderful popping bass/hollow drum sound, and a tasty break in the middle – plus the cuts "This Is Love", "Wishful Thinkin", "Time For Livin", "Can't Strain My Brain", and "Say You Will".

Leon WareCandlelight ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2001. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A new album by Leon Ware – and a real departure from his earlier work in the 70s! The album has Leon emerging as a jazz vocalist – singing in a sweet and intimate style that's still very much in the mode of his best work, but working through a host of standards like "Invitation", "How Insensitive", "Round Midnight", "Skylark", "Stella By Starlight", and "My Ship" – as well as 3 new tracks "Equation", "Candlelight", and "Let Go". The backing on the album is quite spare – with Don Grusin on piano and Fender Rhodes, plus some occasional acoustic guitar from Oscar Castro-Neves, and slight touches of bass and percussion. Very nice – and great to see Leon keep growing as an artist! CD
