3 ... CD World Psychedelia (Korea), Mid 70s. New Copy ...
Super fuzzed out, trippy 70s psych rock from Korea's San Ul Lim – an album recorded by the Seoul rockers in the power trio format of guitar, bass and drums – but with such a fuzzy, dense tone that it's hard to fathom how on Earth they got the sound! The opening track starts in ... (Rock) read moreCD

Shukuru ... CD Theresa/Evidence, 1985. Used ...
A great album by Pharoah Sanders – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a spiritual style that's kind of a bridge between Pharoah's earlier days and the present. The work is played by a small group that includes Idris Muhammad on drums, William Henderson on keyboards, and Ray Drummand on bass. ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A great later moment from Pharoah Sanders – a set that's one of his few from the time that really stretches out in the same open, spiritual territory of his classic recordings for Impulse!

Great Pharoah Sanders albums from '73 – 2 in a single set! Village is an overlooked gem – one that has him breaking the pattern a bit, but in a really great way! The session mixes up more shorter songs than before – still all quite spiritual, but also a bit more focused – ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A Bill Laswell-produced set of sides by Pharoah Sanders – one put together with all of the textural undercurrents of Laswell's previous recordings on Axiom, but done here with a lot more soul and subtlety overall!

A dream of a record from this legendary spiritual jazz duo – drummer Norman Connors and reedman Pharoah Sanders – coming together in a freewheeling spiritual jazz style that's a lot more like Connors' earlier albums than the soulful fusion he was mostly recording in the late 70s! The ... (Jazz) read moreCD
Early 80s genius from trumpeter Arturo Sandoval – 2 albums that were never issued in the US at the time!

Pedro Santos —
Krishnanda ... CD CBS/Mr Bongo (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)...
A totally unique album from the Brazilian scene of the 60s – a set that was recorded right in the middle of the big Tropicalia years, but which has more of the earthier touches that would emerge in the Brazilian scene during the 70s!

A lost jazzy gem – featuring solo work by the great Stan Getz!

But the real treat here is Getz – who solos ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
Nothing serious here – as the sound is soulful, jazzy, and in the hippest fusion spirit of the time – very long, open tracks by a small combo led by Heikki Sarmanto on Fender Rhodes, on tracks that are in the more exploratory side of the Miles Davis/Herbie Hancock spectrum! The work ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A really compelling little set from Satisfaction Unlimited – a group we only know from this one corker of a record on the Hot Wax label!

Lots of galloping rhythms, fuzzed ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD
A heavily sweeping, hero scale score from Carlo Savina for Il Massacro Della Foresta Nera – the mid 60s Italian swords and sandals film Ferdinando Baldi!
