✨✧ Ava CherryStreetcar Named Desire ... LP
Capitol, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more new wave-oriented moments from Ava Cherry – a singer we know best from her solo work in soul, but who also has a pretty strong pedigree on the rock side of the spectrum as well! The instrumentation is heavy on keyboards – played by Mark Isham, in a way that sometimes echoes his best soundtrack work of the decade, but more focused too – at a level that brings a deeper sound to the music than you might expect! Tunes are upbeat and catchy, yet trying for a bit of an edge at times – and Ava serves up the lyrics with a subtle sense of drama in her voice. Titles include "Fast Lover", "Love To Be Touched", "Techno Love", "Having Been Far", "I Guess It's Love", "Awkward Situation", and "Streetcar Named Desire". LP, Vinyl record album
(Dutch pressing. Cover has sticker remnants.)

Irene KralBetter Than Anything ... LP
AVA, 1963. Very Good ... $19.99
Great work by a great singer – the far under-recorded Irene Kral, a lovely lady who really bridges a number of different camps in the vocal jazz world! At one level, Irene's got the coolness of a Christy or Connor, but at another, she's got a more open, swinging, and soulful style – one that comes off with none of the hoke of Anita O'Day, and which is a perfect balance between class, cool, and easy going honesty. The trio of Junior Mance provides the backings, and titles include "Better Than Anything", "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Passing By", "No More", "Nobody Else But Me", "This Is Always", and "It's A Wonderful World".

Toni Lee ScottToni Lee Scott – Vol Lonely ... LP
AVA, 1963. Very Good ... $14.99
An obscure little set, but a great one too – the standout album from singer Toni Lee Scott, recorded with small combo backing that features Gerald Wiggins on piano and Howard Roberts on guitar! The style of the set is often like some of the work on the Mode or Bethlehem label in the late 50s – moody, intimate, and done with a really relaxed feel that's a great contrast to some of the more mainstream vocalists of the time. Toni's voice is beautiful throughout – emotive, but never overdone – and the choice of material is great too, possibly due to the fact that Tommy Wolf (one of our favorite songwriters) had a hand in producing the set! Titles include "It Couldn't Happen To A Nicer Guy", "My Heart Stood Still", "Where's The Boy I Saved For A Rainy Day", "What Now My Love", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Something Cool".

✨✧ Mark Lawrence/Victor Feldman/Norman ParisDavid & Lisa ... LP
AVA, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Side one of this LP isn't much to write home about – dramatic orchestral music, written by Mark Lawrence, and conducted by Norman Paris – dark stuff to accompany the film in the title. Side two is great, though – jazzy "impressions" of the main themes, played by a group that's led by Victor Feldman, with a free lyrical approach that's better than most of his other work from the time. Titles include "Theme From David & Lisa", "David & Lisa's Love Song", "Paree Paree Paree", and "Clock Smash". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

✨✧ VariousSaravah Jazz ... CD
Saravah/Sony (Japan), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
French vocals meet jazz instrumentation – all in a blend that's totally sublime, and which features a wide range of unusual styles and sounds! The CD looks at the jazzier side of the legendary Saravah label – tracks that are still very much in the genre-leaping mode of other Saravah work, but which often feature some jazz-based rhythms and instrumentation as well! Very little of the music here is straight jazz in a traditional sense – but the package shows the way that jazz was a key component of the blend of other styles (like bossa and poetry) that comprised the unique Saravah sound! The collection features some nicely obscure tracks from the label – plus even a bit of blues and Brazilian elements too – on titles that include "She Moves" and "Ode To Mafeen" by Clif Streetman with Nana Vasconcelos, "Moon River" by Maurice Vander, "Moment's Noice" by Rene Urtreger, "Chope La Soupape" and "Aujourd'Hui Blues" by Jacques Higelin Et Areski, "Africadeus" by Nana Vasconcelos, "Million People Live The Same Way" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Leo" by Brigitte Fontaine & Areski with Art Ensemble Of Chicago, "Bamako Koulikaro" by Barney Wilen, "A Qui La Tournee" by Maurice Lemaitre et Areski, and the tracks "The Uh Uh Uh", "The Cryptosphere", "The Precipitation Suite", and "Lapis" by Steve Lacy.

Luis BacalovL'Oro Dei Bravados (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Veritano (Japan), 1970. Used ... $24.99
A mighty western from the legendary Luis Bacalov – one that's got a very weird use of instruments on the theme! The title to "L'Oro Dei Bravados" isn't that long, but Bacalov manages to fill the tune with odd harmonica, electric harpsichord, pan pipes, and jews harp – all in the space of a few short minutes, in a way that really sets the scene for all the odder moments to follow in the record! These other elements break off a bit on following tracks, and dominate more strongly – next to other more driving tunes that have a more conventional western soundtrack feel. Some vocals are by I Cantori Moderni, whistling and guitar is by Alessandro Alessandroni, and harmonica is by Franco De Gemini. CD features the previously unreleased "Adios Tierra Mia (edit)" – plus 19 more tracks from the film! CD

Franco BattiatoSembrava Una Serata Come Tante/Gente (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Universal (Italy), 1969. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99
Rare early single from Italian singer-songwriter Franco Battiato – and in a melodic, sprawling psych pop style – with is something of a surprise given his more out there experimentation on later recordings! Both tracks start out with a fairly intimate sound, but build in atmosphere as they go, with nice string arrangements and passionate vocals. A great couple of tunes! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jerry Blavant with Steve OskieYou Only Rock Once ... Book
Running Press, 2011. New Copy ... $1.99 15.00
One of the biggest early DJs in rock and roll – the mighty Jerry Blavat, aka The Geator With The Heator – telling the tale of all of his many years in music, all with the same panache he brought to his on-air persona! Blavat's story is the stuff of legend – told around the business by writers like Nick Tosches, who sometimes get at Jerry's shadier side – and surprisingly, the man himself is more than happy to illuminate those corners, often with details that are even more juicy! The book is a whopping 347 pages, with some black and white photos – and is filled with rock and soul stories from the Philly scene and beyond. Book

Peter Brotzmann/John Edwards/Steve NobleSoulfood Available ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99
The title's a very apt one – as saxophonist Peter Brotzmann somehow sounds even more soulful than ever – almost at a level that evokes John Coltrane and Albert Ayler with his searing, searching tones on the album's very long title track! "Soulful Available" is worth the price of admission alone – as Brotzmann blows this very spiritual tenor over bass from John Edwards and drums from Steve Noble – as all three players build intensity and resonate together, almost with a 60s ESP sort of vibe – quite different than usual for Peter, but really appreciated as well! Some of the more familiar Brotzmann sense of tone and timing come through on the album's two shorter tracks, both of which are great too – "Nail Dogs By Ears" and "Don't Fly Away". CD

Budos BandMaelstrom/Avalanche ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $4.99
A pair of aural psych funk severe weather events from the mighty Budos Band! "Maelstrom" kicks off with swirling bit of organ, presaging the funky onslaught to come – with soulful horn blasts and and impeccably rhythmic sensibility that keeps it from flying out of control. "Avalanche" brings a lot of heavy, fuzzy guitar to the table, but still rooted in instrumental funk, via the amazing horn section, keyboards and bass groove. 7-inch, Vinyl record

John CacavasAirport 1975 ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About March 22, 2017
Swirling strings galore – but served up with just the right mix of sex and drama to fit the spirit of this second Airport film! The music is a lot more complex than the first time around – and sometimes has these spare dramatic moments that echo European thrillers of the period, mixed with some even hipper numbers that show some cool colors coming together in this brilliant tapestry that works very well apart from the screen. A few numbers echo earlier bossa modes – including a take on "How Insensitive" and "A Man & A Woman" – and other tunes include the great "Airport 1975 Theme", plus "Montage", "Alexander's Death", "In Flight Collision", and "Interludium".

Felix CavaliereCastles In The Air ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Felix Cavaliere may be best known to some for his work in the Rascals – but years later, he stepped out as a solo act on his own – with a sound that nicely drew from all of his early work on Atlantic Records! The sound here is kind of a late 70s update of the blue-eyed mode that Felix had with his earlier group – given a bit more of an AOR spin in the production, through use of a top-shelf array of jazz fusion players in the backings. Despite the pianos on the cover, Cavaliere mostly plays Fender Rhodes and organ next to his vocals – on titles that include "Only A Lonely Heart Sees", "All Or Nothing", "People Got To Be Free", "Outside Your Window", "Love Is The First Day Of Spring", "You Turned Me Around", and "Good To Have Love Back". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

Cavanaugh (Open Mike Eagle & Serengeti)Time & Materials ... CD
Mello Music Group, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99
Two of post millennium indie hip hop's most distinctive rhyme stylists – Open Mike Eagle and Serengeti – teaming up as Cavanaugh, and it's as inspired of a project as we'd hoped! There's a dark, hazy mood here – particularly in the thick waves of synth in the production, but the rhymes bring that vibe, too – which creative without skimping on scene setting, quick-witted without decending into comedy rap – easily living up to each cat's legacy. Includes "Zorak", "Screen Play", "Overland", "Typecast" feat POS, Hemlock Ernst & Busdriver, "Pinky", "Church", "Tar", "Wonder Girl" and "Lemons". CD
Also available Time & Materials ... LP 9.99
