Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1979. Used ... $5.99
Guitar-heavy fusion from Sweetbottom – one of those late 70s groups that definitely brought a rock into play with their jazz! In fact, this album's got more vocals than the group's previous efforts – definitely heading for the kind of mature, FM radio mode of the time – cats ... read more CD

An obscure album from Sylvia Syms – issued on the short-lived Movietone label at ABC, with backing by the combo of pianist Bernie Leighton! Players aren't named, but there's a strong trumpet and tenor component to the album – with deeper soul that makes Sylvia sound hipper than usual. (Vocalists, Jazz) LP, Vinyl record album

Inner City, 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Lew Tabackin looks a bit stiff on the cover of this one (who wouldn't, in a tan polyester suit?) – but the record's a surprisingly hip date, and a great chance to hear Lew away from his 70s big band with Toshiko Akioshi!

Atlantic City/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A very different album than usual from the South African jazz scene of the 60s – much more rootsy, and very personal sounds – and hardly the kind of nationwide expression you might guess from the title!

Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2007. New Copy ... $16.99
A set that's maybe not as sweet as you'd guess from the title – as pianist Aki Takase plays solo, often with all these sharp, angular edges – as she makes her way through a host of great original material, plus well-selected tunes from Ornette Coleman, Thelonious Monk, Carla Bley, and ... read more CD
