Cy ColemanTroublemaker – Original Soundtrack ... LP
AVA, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $6.99
A weird one – but a nice one! Side one features tunes composed by Cy Coleman for the film Troublemaker – mostly easy instrumentals, in the vein of Cy's regular work from the time, but with some nice soundtrack-y touches from time to time – with titles that include "Finale", "Chase", "Kidnap", "Love At First Sight", and "Denver's Theme". Better, though, is side two of the album – which features tracks from other films, supposedly in new versions. Includes "Man With The Golden Arm" and "Walk On The Wild Side" by Elmer Bernstein, "Here I Go Again" by China Lee with Dick Hazard, and "On The Street Where You Live" by Harry Betts.

David BowieCracked Actor – Live Los Angeles 74 ... CD
Parlophone, 1974. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic live set from David Bowie – recorded on tour in 1974 for the Diamond Dogs album – and a very much at the height of his mid 70s powers! The album's very well-recorded, and the performances are great – not muddy mixes of hits, but razor-sharp readings that crackle with the excitement of the live arena – with some moments that stretch out nicely, and fantastic response from the audience – who are clearly thrilled to be part of this amazing moment. Bowie brings back a few moments from the Ziggy period, but he's also looking ahead with Thin White Duke energy too – as the group is tight and soulful, and features David Sanborn on alto, Mike Garson on keyboards, Earl Slick and Carlos Alomar on guitars, Pablo Rosario on congas, and backing vocals from Luther Vandross and Ava Cherry! Titles include an especially great version of "Aladdin Sane" – plus "1984", "Moonage Daydream", "Sweet Thing/Candidate", "Cracked Actor", "All The Young Dudes", "Jean Genie", "Time", "Diamond Dogs", "It's Gonna Be Me", "John I'm Only Dancing", "Changes", "Knock On Woood", and "Space Oddity".

✨✧ Throttle Elevator Music feat Kamasi WashingtonRetrorespective ... CD
Wide Hive, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not a retrospective of the music of Throttle Elevator Music – as you might mistake from the title – but instead a fresh new album that features the group working tremendously with the mighty Kamasai Washington! Washington isn't just a guest, but a key member of the group – and he really helps to push forward that deepening sound they've developed since their first release – a huge evolution that only gets better when Kamasai's on board. Washington plays tenor on the record, and contributes songs and arrangements – and some of the vibe of the set is maybe a small combo take on territory he explored on The Epic album – proud and righteous, with a very uplifting spirit. Other group members include Erik Jekabson on flugelhorn and trumpet, Ava Mendoza on guitar, Matt Mongtomery on bass and piano, and Thomas McCree on drums – and producer Gregory Howe also contributes songs and arrangements. Titles include "Flux & Solder", "Liminality", "Playing The Alleyway", "February Drift", "Subtract Limited", and "Rapid Rotation". CD

Very heavy duty Afro-Cuban material, with a focus on carnaval grooves – played by 2 different groups: Carlos Barbeira's Banda Kubavana, and Alberto Zayas Grupo Afro-Cubano. We like the Grupo Afro-Cubano the best, as they have a nice raw percussion sound, and a very hard groove with ensemble vocals. Titles include "Congas De Las Bolleras", "El Alacran", "Los Marqueses De Atares", "Conga De Santiago", and "Conga A Cecilia Valdes". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Brotzmann/John Edwards/Steve NobleSoulfood Available ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2014. Used Gatefold ... $11.99
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

Chico BuarqueCaravanas ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
That's an aging Chico Buarque on the cover, still looking cooler than anyone else around – and sounding the same on this wonderful record! Buarque was one of the first of an important new generation of Brazilian songwriters to emerge in the 60s – and unlike some of the others, who've maybe lost steam over the years, Chico continues to grow and evolve – really shaping his music to different modes as the years go on, and never failing to give us his all with each new recording! This set's got a beautifully personal vibe – mostly Buarque's still-wonderful voice alongside his own acoustic guitar – augmented by other instrumentation, but in ways that still really leave the master at the forefront – with a level of songwriting and performance that's completely mesmerizing. Titles include "Tua Cantiga", "Massarandupio", "Dueto", "As Caravanas", "Desaforos", "Casualmente", and "Jogo De Bola". CD

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 Coltrane & Don CherryAvant-Garde ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A beautiful meeting of two major talents from the left end of jazz – recorded in the early 60's when both were working for Atlantic! Despite the "avant garde" title, this set is straighter than you'd expect – very much in the spirit of Coltrane's work for the label, but with perhaps some of the more angular styles that Cherry was laying down with Ornette Coleman at the time. The session has Coltrane joining Ornette's group of Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell – save for a few numbers that feature Percy Heath on bass instead of Haden. The set includes great readings of Ornette's "The Blessing", "The Invisible", and "Focus On Sanity", and Coltrane plays both soprano sax and tenor! LP, Vinyl record album

CortexAvant Garde Party Music ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2018. New Copy ... $23.99
The title might be a bit goofy, but it's actually a pretty great way to sum up the spirit of this group – as the contemporary Cortex come from avant roots, but also have a vibrancy that makes their music sound more celebratory than confrontational! The quartet features endlessly creative rhythms from the duo of Olya Hoyer on bass and Gard Nilssen on drums – topped by beautiful interplay between the trumpet of Thomas Johansson and saxophonist Kristoffer Berre Alberts – both players who can sometimes be completely in step with each other, sometimes almost at odds, and individually really work to make the whole record soar when it's time for their solos. Titles include "Mac Davis", "Grinder", "Chaos", "Waltz", "Disturbance", "Obverse/Reverse", and "Off Course". LP, Vinyl record album

New Jazz/Prestige, 1964. Very Good ... $38.99
An odd collection for the Prestige family of labels, featuring groups led by two artists who aren't normally associated with the label. The first four numbers are by Fats Navarro, recording alongside Don Lanphere, Al Haig, Tommy Potter and Max Roach: "Stop", "Go", "Infatuation" and "Wailing Wall". Miles leads a great bop group with Jackie McLean, Sonny Rollins, Walter Bishop, Tommy Potter and Art Blakey on "My Old Flame" and "Conception", and Diz rounds out the set in a sextet that features Jimmy Heath, Jimmy Oliver, Milt Jackson, Percy Heath and Joe Harris on "Thinking Of You", "Too Much Weight", "She's Gone Again" amd "Nice Work If You Can Get It".

Navasha DayaLom Nava Love ... CD
Daya World, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
Mindblowing work from Navasha Daya – a singer you might know for her key role in the group Fertile Ground many years back – still one of the most important contemporary acts we've ever stocked at Dusty Groove! Here, Navasha returns as a tremendous soul star on her own – working on these incredible songs of righteous power – in a full concept album dedicated to black families and their quest for freedom in America! Some of the songs are quite topical, others are very universal – and the musical approach here is a mix of deep funk, contemporary soul, and even some surprising 60s and 70s elements – all composed and produced by Fanon Hill, who's Daya's key musical partner on the album. There's still all the jazziness and warmth that we love in the music of Fertile Ground, but the style is also nicely different – and the whole thing is a tremendous statement of power from this always-compelling singer. Titles include "I Am Because We Are", "Operation 666 Poverty", "I Too Dream Of Things Beautiful", "Better Than This", "It's Still About Freedom", "Baltimore Stand Strong", and "Whose Child". CD

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelisContinuavano A Chiamarlo Trinita (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
A beautifully sensitive soundtrack for this early film from the team of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill – very different than most of the other western music of the time – which is a fitting accompaniment to the unique actions of the pair onscreen! There's a fair bit of acoustic guitar in the instrumentation, used in ways that are sometimes warmer and more sentimental than you'd expect – played with a subtle sort of character that really comes through in this well-done reissue of the music – and which gets even better when groovier elements on piano or horns come into the mix. Things build nicely as the set moves on, with a very vivid feel throughout – and titles include "Remember", "Il Carro Al Fiume", "Assalto Alla Diligenza", "Ranch Di Parker", "Trinity E Bambino A San Jose", and "Trinity Stand Tall". Great reissue version – with excellent sound, notes in Italian and English, and even some vocal songs sung by Gene Roman. LP, Vinyl record album

Som Livre/Vinilisssimo (Spain), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
The earliest album we've ever seen from the legendary Djavan – and a record that's even better than some of his classics for Columbia! The album has a sound that's relatively spare – with Djavan's wonderful vocals backed by a small combo that mixes up samba and jazz – using electric piano to especially great effect to give some of the best numbers a really soulful vibe! Most numbers are upbeat and lively – and not nearly as overblown as some of Djavan's later work. Titles include "Fato Consumado", "Flor De Lis", "Para Raio", "Ventos De Norte", and "E Que Deus Ajude". LP, Vinyl record album

DjavanDjavan/Alumbramento ... CD
Capitol/World Pacific, 1978/1980. Used ... $7.99
2 classics from Djavan – back to back on a single CD! The first album is sublime early work from Djavan – a bit of jazz, a bit of samba, and a bit of soul – all wrapped together in wonderfully warm arrangements! The sound here is sophisticated without being sleepy, and there's still a lightness to Djavan's music at this point – a style that manages to plumb the depths of his vocals, yet without some of the too-emotive moments of later work – a very careful balance that makes for an album that's lovely and delightful all the way through! The set includes loads of nice tracks – like the jazzy "Serrado", plus "Minha Mae", "Numa Esquina De Hanoi", "Alagoas", "Samba Dobrado", and "Dupla Traico". Alumbramento is a great album from Djavan – quite ambitious and sophisticated, but in a way that leans heavily on his amazing vocals and great songwriting skills! As on most of his best albums from the time, he's working with a small core group of jazz players – sensitive musicians who provide some incredible accompaniment to his songs – in ways that are almost a second generation take on the styles first laid out by Milton Nascimento a few years before, but at even deeper levels. The record features a guest appearance by Chico Buarque, and tracks include "A Rosa", "Tem Boi Na Linha", "Sim Ou Nao", "Aquele Um", "Meu Bem Querer", and "Sururu De Capote". CD

A really wonderful recent album from Djavan – much simpler and personal than some of his other work in the past decade, and delivered with an uncluttered style that's really great. There's a simplicity here that grabs us right away – Djavan's majestic voice still in the lead, but supported by lighter instrumentation, and a slight undercurrent of jazz on some of the tracks. Titles include "Bailarina", "Celeuma", "Flor Do Medo", "Se Acontecer", "Mundo Vasto", "Dorme Sofia", and "Taina Flor". CD

Hanni El KhatibSavage Times – The Complete Collection Vol 1-5 (3 X 10 inch – with download) ... LP
Innovative Leisure, 2017. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A sprawling stunner from Hanni El Khatib – who doesn't leave behind the gritty, yet melodic garage rock and soul sounds he's done so well on an ALREADY diversely inspired career-to-date – it's just that he just does SO much more on Savage Times. We loved the raucous, tight blasts of timeless raw rock with soul he's made his name on so far, but Hanni has a lot more in his wheelhouse – from more angular, skronkier takes on the style, to more subtle and melodious tunes than he's ever done – his range is pretty incredible, but it's unmistakably his own. Impressive stuff! 19 in all: "Baby's OK", "Gonna Die Alone", "Born Brown", "Paralyzed", "Come Down", "No Way", "Black Constellation", "So Dusty", "Mangos & Rice", "Miracle", "Hole Me Back", "Till Your Rose Comes Home", "Savage Time" and more – plus 4 bonus songs: "1AM", "Peep Show", "This I Know" and "Freak Freely".

As mammoth of an archival box set for a post punk band as important as this one as we're ever likely to see! Savage Young Du collects a huge number of formative tracks by the Twin Cities legends, and without diving into the rancorous personal history of the band members post-split, it's astounding that this even exists. But the most amazing thing is how strongly it lives up to their later legacy. 47 of the 69 tracks – including a wealth of surprisingly great sound live material, demos, early 7-inch tracks and alternate version of their first (live) album – have never been released before and it's kind of stunning how brilliant the band is at this nascent stage. All the material is from 1979 to 1982, pre-SST, and true to Numero Group standards, it's put together with the utmost care, including a hefty little hardcover book worth the price alone. Includes "Do You Remember", "Sore Eyes", "Do The Bee", "Nuclear Nightmare", "Insects Rule The World", "Sexual Economics", "Statues", "Amusement", "Writer's Cramp", Guns At My School", "Let's Go Die", "Don't Say A Word", "From The Gut", "Brick Layer", "Target", "Gravity", "Real World", "Out On A Limb", "It's Not Fair" and tons more.

Isley Jasper IsleyCaravan Of Love ... LP
CBS, 1985. Sealed ... $3.99
A huge 80s moment for the Isley Brothers empire – a set that has Ernie and Marvin Isley stepping away from the main group with Chris Jasper – to reinvent their sound for the 80s! The record still has all the slinky soul and upbeat funk of the Isley material from the late 70s – but also pushes the groove in a slightly different way – often using leaner arrangements that are focused on beats, basslines, and keyboards – which only seem to make the warm vocals of the trio sound even more seductive in the end! There's that subtle sense of majesty that the group always had in their music at their height – an influence that might well come from the presence of Jasper – and the album's noteworthy for the wonderful "Caravan Of Love", a soulful spiritual tune that's kind of to 80s soul what The Impressions "People Get Ready" was to 60s soul! The album's got a good mellow harmony sound, and other titles include "Liberation", "I Can Hardly Wait", "Insatiable Woman", and "If You Believe In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Tom Jobim, Vinicius De Moraes, Toquinho, MiuchaTom, Vinicius, Toquinho, & Miucha – Gravado Ao Vivo No Canecao ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweet little live set that brings together the talents of two great bossa duos of the 70s – the team of Antonio Carlos Jobim and female singer Miucha – and poet Vinicius De Moraes and guitarist Toquinho! The set is filled with very lively material that has a classic bossa feel, and there's lots of trading back and forth on the vocal leads between the group – very loose and spontaneous, more so than any studio albums recorded by either duo. Miucha's one of Jobim's better female frontline singers, and she really does a nice job with the material, and with her vocal duets with Tom. Vinicius and Toquinho are in their best post-bossa mode, and the whole set's very well put together, with the kind of classic bossa party sound of an older Elenco Records live album! Tracks include "Aqua de Beber", "Wave", "Girl from Ipanema", and "Estamos Ai". CD

East Wind (Japan), 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A beautiful group, and one with a very unique sound – a style that draws from the early 50s experiments in Brazilian jazz by Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida – but which also moves the approach into even more sophisticated 70s territory! The quartet features Almeida on acoustic guitar and Bud Shank on some wonderful reeds – plus bass from Ray Brown and drums from Shelly Manne, but players who are open to all the new ideas of Bud and Laurindo, but who can also throw in a stronger groove when needed. The album's a wonderful experiment in really pushing the envelope of jazz expression further – but never in any sort of outside ways – and titles include a reading of Ravel's "Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte", plus "C'Est What", "Corcovado", "Autumn Leaves", "Samba De Orfeu", and "Reveil".

Polydor/Preservation (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $8.99
A Norwegian group from the start of the 80s, but one who are completely enamoured of the AOR sound from the American west coast time – so much so, they turn out a record here that could easily slide in right alongside the classics! Tunes are tight, catchy, and have English language lyrics throughout – a style that's well-crafted, and which flowers strongly with sweet keyboard lines alongside the vocals! A few cuts are instrumental, with even more focus on the keys – and as with most AOR of the period, there's a slight current of jazz in the mix – maybe more as a flavoring than a main component. Titles include "Tea Beat", "Hard Times", "Juliet", "Empty Shadows", "2.12", "Holiday", "Prime Time", and "Late At Night". Also features bonus tracks "DJ (long version)", "Hold On", and "Take Me To The River". CD

Lyman Family with Lisa KindredAmerican Avatar ... CD
Reprise/Omnivore, 1969. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A really beautiful album that grew out of the jug band scene of the early 60s – then really took the music in some great new directions! Mel Lyman is the leader of the group here – playing banjo and bluesy harmonica – but he also works with previous jug band partners Geoff Muldaur and Jim Kweskin on guitars – and some great vocals from the enigmatic Lisa Kindred! Kindred's style of singing is very eerie – with a spooky darkness that's somewhere between the flatness of Nico and the secrets of Cass Elliott – and her voice is almost used here as another instrument amidst the raw, acoustic presentation of the instruments – in a mode that's almost more Takoma than you'd expect. There's none of the earlier jug band hokiness, but plenty of that scene's great reworking of early 20th century musical ideas – and titles include "California Water", "James Alley Blues", "Jesus Met The Woman At The Well", "My Love Comes Rolling Down", and "It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes A Train To Cry".

✨✧ MachitoMachito – From Montuno to Cubop – Havana/New York Recordings 1939 to 1962 (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Grosso! (Spain), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
A great look at the earliest years of Machito – a set that follows him from early Cuban recordings, through bebop experiments on the New York scene of the postwar years, to some of his classic group albums of the 50s! Machito always had a strong ear for the jazzier sides of Latin styles - and even when he wasn't working with American jazz musicians, he always had some great elements of that style in his music – as you'll hear on the 27 tracks on this nicely long set. The package brings together rare album tracks and singles – and titles include "Bum Bum Pachang", "Negro Nanamboro", "Quimbombo", "Bongo Fiesta", "Beerebee Cumbee", "El Rey Del Mambo", "Tanga", "Mi Padrino Me Manda", "Calientito", "Bim Bam Bum", "Nague", "Babarabatiri", "El Columpio", "Ven Conmigo Guajira", and "Zambia".

PixinguinhaO Jovem Pixinguinha – Gravacoes De 1919 a 1920 ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1919/1920. Used ... $4.99
Some of the earliest recordings ever from Pixinquinha – the Brazilian reedman who went onto influence generations of musicians! The recording quality is surprisingly good for the time – probably done at an acoustic, instead of electric level – but in a way that really brings out the deepest, most soulful notes in the music. Instrumentation often just includes a bit of reeds – flute or clarinet – a stringed instrument, and some light percussion – but a few tracks also feature some fuller orchestrations as well. There's a freshness here that's undeniable – even given the age of the recordings – and when you hear these originals, you'll readily understand why so many current musicians are always paying tribute to Pixinquinha! Titles include "Rosa", "Os Oito Batutas", "Eu Tambem Vou", "Tapa Buraco", "Os Teus Beijos", "Ainda Existe", "Vamos Brincar", "Recordando", "Lamentos", "Desprezado", and "Carinhoso". CD

Reel People with Navasha DayaI'm In Love (12" voc, inst)/Can't Fake The Feeling (12" voc, inst) (180 gram pressing) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... 12-inch
Papa (UK), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99
Navasha Daya is light years away from her roots with Fertile Ground – singing here on two massive cuts from Reel People – both of which elevate her to legendary soul diva status! Daya is incredible on the version of the Kashif tune "I'm In Love" – hitting a level that might only be reserved for a rare few, like Chaka Khan or Jean Carn – and even though the tune is a catchy boogie number, Navasha's presentation makes the whole thing feel like a statement of spiritual soul! "Can't Fake The Feeling" is a classic from Geraldine Hunt – but Hunt never gave the tune the depth that it gets here – really soaring with Navasha's tremendous vocals, and given superb grooves from Oli Lazarus, Matt Cooper, and the rest of the Reel People team. A pricey limited single – but one that really delivers the goods! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pierre SandwidiLe Troubadour De La Savane - 1976 to 1980 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A lost legacy in music from Pierre Sandwidi – a singer from Burkina Faso who had a fair bit to say about the social situation in his West African nation – often working in a mode that was a bit more cut off from mainstream music on the continent, which resulted in a very unique sort of sound! Many of these numbers use evocative keyboard lines and electronics to fill the space that would have been taken up by a larger musical ensemble – doing so in ways that are often surprisingly effective, and not nearly as gimmicky as you might expect – especially when mixed with a few acoustic instruments. Lyrics are all in French, and often highlight Pierre's politics, but mix in a few more humanistic moments – on titles that include "Fils Du Sahel", "Boy Cuisinier", "Je Demande Ma Demission", "Tond Yabramba", "Mam Ti Fou", and "Ouaga Affaires".

Fantasy, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $59.99
Quite a rootsy early album from Mongo Santamaria – recordings done in Havana in early 1960, at a time when it was still possible to get music like this out to the US! The style here is quite different than most of Santamaria's other sides from the 60s – mostly a mix of percussion and chanted vocals, and put together with very strong Yoruba influences. The album's a great reminder that even though he later crashed the mainstream, Mongo always had his sound rooted in an Afro-Cuban heritage – and titles include "Mexico", "Olla De", "Wole Niche", "Tele Mina", "Yeye-O", "Agua Limpia", and "Complicaciones".

TavaresIn The City ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A mid 70s classic from Tavares – west coast group soul, sewn up tightly by the team of Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, who also wrote a good portion of tracks on the set! This is some seriously sublime stuff, working on a number of levels. The vocal arrangements are totally killer and on the production tip, the set is just as impeccable. Rave up soul anthems, more delicate and tender groovers, and styles that rolls from stripped down intimacy with lightly spacey textures, to straight up soaring – and it's held together beautifully by the vocals. The record includes the group's sublime version of "It Only Takes A Minute" – one of those tunes that never sounds bad – plus other great numbers, like "In The City", "Free Ride", "Ready Willing & Able", and "In The Eyes Of Love".

Capitol, 1980. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Always-great work from Tavares – one of those groups who never seemed to miss, and who seemed to weather the disco era a lot better than most of their contemporaries! This 1980 album is key proof of that fact – a tremendous little set, done at a point when Tavares could have rested on their hits – yet they kept on getting better and better – really soaring here with impeccable vocals, and tightening things up into a mode that's not exactly 80s groove, but which sure isn't disco either! Harmonies are great – and titles include "Love Uprising", "Break Down For Love", "Only One I Need To Love", "Don't Wanna Say Goodnight", "She Can Wait Forever", "Do You Believe In Love", and "Life Time Of Love".

TavaresLoveline ... LP
Capitol, 1981. Very Good ... $9.99
Tavares really sound great here – way past their 70s hits, but still wonderfully balanced as a harmony soul group! As always, Tavares prove they can groove without ever losing their cool – singing wonderfully amidst some tight-stepping numbers – the best of which hit a warm mellow groove that's totally great – although the upbeat tracks are still pretty wonderful too! Their crossover years are nicely behind them here, and they hit a mature style that's totally great – a real gift to fans of more sophisticated soul, and nicely away from the commercial world on most numbers. A real treasure from the Capitol Rare generation – with titles that include "Loveline", "House Of Music", "God Bless You", "Turn Out The Nightlight", "Better Love", "Right On Time", "Right Back In Your Arms Again", and "Don't Want To Fool You".

Capitol (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album from Tavares – every bit as great on the uptempo end, as you'd expect from their bigger hits, as it is on the sweeter ballad tracks – which step out here as a tremendous surprise! The set was crafted with help from Philly maestro Bobby Martin – and begins with a groove that certainly shows Martin in all of his Sigma-inspired glory – but as the set moves on, it glides into some sweeteer, gentler tracks that come across with a mighty mellow soul approach! The set features 3 stellar tracks written by the great Sam Dees – "Games, Games", "Let Me Heal The Bruises", and "My Love Calls" – all of which show a strong deeper soul side of the group. Other tracks are great, too – and include "I'm Back For More", Never Had A Love Like This Before", "Straight From Your Heart", "One Telephone Call Away", and "Positive Forces". CD

Capitol, 1976. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A stone 70s classic from Tavares – quite possibly the group's biggest album, and a masterpiece of LA vocal group soul! The album's biggest claim to fame is the massive hit "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel", recorded by the group for this set, but blown to the heights through it's huge use in the film Saturday Night Fever. But although that hit might mark them as a disco group, Tavares are still very much in the strongest style of their best early vocal group sets – coming together magically as a group, even when the rhythms are a bit uptempo, and sounding great on tracks that include "To The Other Man", "The Mighty Power Of Love", "Bein With You", "Ridin High", "Wonderful", and "Guiding Star".

Barrence Whitfield & The SavagesDig Everything – The Early Rounder Albums (Dig Yourself/Call Of The Wild) ... CD
Rounder/Ace (UK), 1985/1987. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Two early albums from Barrence Whitfield & The Savages – both on CD for the first time! First up is Dig Yourself – a mid 80s set that hearkens back to the years of 60s soul and garage – served up by one of the hardest working Boston bands of the time – a real precursor to the later style of the deep funk revival groups! There's always been something about Boston that makes the city a real hotbed for classic soul – which is something that most folks might not expect, given that back in the day there weren't any soul music record labels on the scene. Yet Beantown record shops have always been filled with lots of soul records, and listeners in the city have always had an open ear towards the music – which makes Barrence Whitfield & The Savages such a logical match for the scene. The modes here are maybe equal rock and soul – a grittier version of territory explored by J Geils decade before – and titles include "Wild Cherry", "Sadie Green", "Shame Shame Shame", "Bloody Mary", "Big Mamou", and "Juicy Fruit". Call Of The Wild was originally only an overseas album, which was cut up upon release here in the US. The sound of that one is a bit less gritty, but still prime Savages material – and titles include "Stop Twisting My Arm", "Madhouse", "Livin Proof", "Girl From Outer Space", "The Apology Line", and "Rockin The Mule Back In Kansas".

Havard Wiik TrioThis Is Not A Waltz ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
Definitely not a waltz – if you know the music of pianist Havard Wilk at all – and instead, the kind of cascading sounds we've really come to love from his music on the piano – a unique touch on the keys that's made Wilk one of the most distinct musicians we've heard in years! As with other recent efforts, the style here unlocks bold new territory in the familiar piano trio setting – music that's as distinct to Havard's scene as the inventions of Herbie Nichols and Elmo Hope were to theirs – and, like both of those modern jazz giants, Wilk's got a way of stating himself strongly, but without ever overstating his case – leaving our ears completely enraptured with the way he spins out new ideas on the keys, but without ever seeming to have a sense of ego. His partners in the proceedings here are equally great – Ole Morten Vagen on bass and Hakon Mjaset Johansen on drums – a beautifully-unified trio of visionaries – and titles include "Tear Conveyor", "Tudor Style", "Neidbau", "Calligrams", "Mnemonic Functions", and "Pneumatiques".

Songs are by some of the greats who recorded for Saravah in the 60s and 70s – Brigitte Fontaine, Pierre Barouh, Francis Lai, Jack Treese, Jean-Roger Causimmon, and others – and some of the numbers are done in styles that really recall the original records, while others take off in ways that are more contemporary – but still have that amazing genre-busting, culture-crossing style that's always made Saravah so great!

A fantastic overview of the wonderful sounds that Gilles Peterson has been cooking up in Havana since 2009 – the rich array of artists he's collaborated with as part of the bigger Havana Cultura project – which has given great exposure to a whole new generation of brilliant Cuban talents! The approach on many tracks echoes the vibe on Peterson's Brownswood label – a mixture of roots with more contemporary 21st soul touches – on sounds that do a lot to bring the Havana vibe into contact with the musical changes in soul around the world – but all without ever resorting to easy tricks or gimmicks, or dampening the spirit at the core at all. That careful balance has always been the key Peterson hallmark, and it's greatly appreciated here – on titles that include "Yemaya" by Chillum Trio, "Rezando" by Havana Cultura Band, "Traigo" by Seu Seppie, "Yambu (Daisuke Tanabe & Yoshi Horikawa rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "El Ruso" by Dayme Arocena, "En Lo Profundo" by Danay Suarez, "Ay" by Arema Arega, "La Rumba Experimental (Motor City Drum Ensemble rmx)" by Havana Cultura Band, "Soy Cubano" by Kerkstra with Sexto Sentido, "Arroz Con Pollo" by Havana Cultura Band, "Calle F" by Mala, and "La Revolucion Del Cuerpo (part 1)" by Havana Cultura Band with Ogguere, Danay Suarez, and Obsesion. 3LPs in a heavy box!

A rare cross-cultural session from 1979 – one in which Columbia Records was allowed to record live performances involving a number of American jazz musicians playing alongside Cuban groups like Irakere and The Cuban Percussion Ensemble! The blend of modes here is really great – somewhat in the territory of Irakere's albums for Columbia, but a lot wider-ranging overall – sometimes sensitive and jazz-based, sometimes much more upbeat and jamming! Jazz players include Dexter Gordon, Paquito D'Rivera, Jimmy Heath, and Stan Getz on tenor sax; Arthur Blythe on alto sax, Cedar Walton on piano, Jimmy Heath on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – as well as the members of Weather Report, who turn in one especially cooking number. Irakere plays "Mil Ciento De Junedad" and "Contradanza", Weather Report play "Teentown", Cuban Percussion Ensemble play "Scherezada/Sun Sun", John McLaughlin's Trio Of Doom play "Para Oriente" and "Continuum", and assorted jazz players handle "Tin Tin Deo", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Sounds For Sore Ears", and "I Wanna Be".

An explosion of groundbreaking sounds from the 60s – all records issued in the magical year of 1965 – with a fresh vibe that would influence years of soul, psych, and garage styles to come! Jon Savage has already given us two other great year-based collections on Ace, but this one might be one of his most impressive – given that most folks tend to overlook the musical power of 1965, in favor of bigger explosions later in the 60s – but all of which were inspired by these earlier moments of fire! You'll definitely recognize some of the tunes here, but with his usual genius, Jon Savage has a way of mixing the familiar with the obscure – coming up with new ways to put everything together, and really opening up our ears in the process. As with previous volumes, the notes are huge – with plenty of details on the sounds within – and the 2CD package features a whopping 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" by The Silkie, "Concrete & Clay" by Unit Four Plus Two, "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better" by The Byrds, "Buttermilk (part 1)" by Sly, "Boot Leg" by Booker T & The MGs, "Fortune Teller" by Tony Jackson with The Vibrations, "That's The Way It's Got To Be" by The Poets, "Come & Stay With Me" by Marianne Faithful, "See My Friends" by The Kinks, "Too Many People" by The Leaves, "I've Got Mine" by The Small Faces, "The Duck" by Jackie Lee, "The Story Of John Hardy" by Sir Douglas Quintet, "We Sell Soul" by The Spades, "Blow Your Mind" by The Gas Co, "You Just Gotta Know My Mind" by Karen Verros, "Can You Hear Me" by Lee Dorsey, "London Town" by Pretty Things, "Are You A Boy Or Are You A Girl" by The Barbarians, "I'm Alive" by The Hollies, "Leaving Here" by The Birds, and "Twine Time" by Alvin Cash & The Crawlers.

Titles include "Lonely Mood" by The 5 Echoes, "Down The Aisle Of Love" by The Quintones, "Mountain Of Love" by Harold Dorman, "Robin The Cradle" by Tony Bells, "Red Sails In The Sunset" by The Spaniels, "Rockin Little Angel" by Ray Smith, "A Long Time Ago" by The Impressions, "Up On The Mountain" by The Magnificients, "Mother's Son" by The Delegates, and "You Said You Loved Me" and "Newly Wed" by The Orchids. LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy rainbow label pressing, with deep groove! Cover has some wear with a split top seam.)
