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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear.)

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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Label has an old sticker.)

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinWalk On The Wild Side (bonus tracks) ... CD
Choreo/AVA, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Elmer Bernstein's best soundtracks of the 60s – written for this film set in the brothels of New Orleans in the 30s, with a mix of jazz and dramatic themes. The best cuts are the jazz-based ones – tunes that come across with more of a 60s groove than you'd expect, given the setting of the film, and which are played by a small combo. Other tracks are more serious – and titles include "Juke For Teresina", "Exit Kitty", "Hallie's Jazz", "Iron Rings", "Doll House", and "Walk On The Wild Side". CD

✨✧ 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 ... $19.99
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

✨✧ Ray BarrettoCarnaval (Latino!/Pachanga With Barretto) ... CD
Fantasy, 1961/1962. Used ... $6.99
Two of Ray Barretto's earliest albums, both recorded for the Riverside label at the start of his career! Latino has an approach to Latin jazz that's certainly informed by the charanga sound of the New York scene in the early 60s – but one that's also opened up a bit more to new ideas – bits of bossa nova, heavy percussion, and some odd instrumental twists that really make the album sparkle! There's some haunting violin work on one track, a bit of odd organ on another, and a very playful mix of flute, piano, and percussion throughout. The great Jose Combo Silva plays tenor on the date – and other players include Jose Canoura on flute, Alfredito Valdez on piano, and El Negro Vivar on trumpet. Ray's on congas, bongos, and timbales – and titles include "Sugar's Delight", "Carnaval", "Descarga La Moderna", "El Negro Y Ray", and "Cocinando Suave". Pachanga With Barretto is a very offbeat little set from Ray – a record that takes the standard pachanga groove of the time, and nicely turns it on its ear with a host of jazzy touches! Hector Rivera wrote all the tracks, and also did most of the arrangements – and the record's got a really playful feel that's far more than just straight Latin for the crowds at the club. Flute and violin are often used in slightly unusual ways – and they're mixed with harder lines on tenor from Frank Mercado and trumpet from El Negro Vivar. Other players include Ray Mantilla on timbales, Jose Canoura on flute, and Willie Rodriguez on percussion – and titles include "Oye Heck", "Pachanga Suavecito", "Pachanga Para Bailar", "Barretto En La Tumbadora", "Pachanga Oriental", and "Ponte Dura".

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

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

Nelson Cavaquinho, Candeia, Guilherme De BritoQuatro Grandes Do Samba ... CD
Sony (UK), 1977. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful album of samba tracks – recorded with a warm intimacy that really gets at the talents of the group! Four samba giants – Nelson Cavaquinho, Cadeia, Guilherme De Brito, and Elto Medeiros – join forces in this 1977 session recorded for RCA Brazil. The vocal stylings of the artists are shifted from track to track – so that most numbers feature one of the quartet stepping out as a lead vocalist, with accompaniment by the others – which makes for a very collaborative, almost spontaneous sort of feel – just the right setting for these legends of the genre. Titles include "Sem Ilusao", "Noticia", "Amor Perfeito", "Nao E So Voce", "A Vida", "Sou Mais O Samba", and "Gotas De Luar". CD

Dave DavaniFused! – Swinging Soul Sound Of Dave Davani ... CD
Parlophone/Big Beat (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Mod mod 60s jazz – and 20 tight-as-can-be instrumentals from London's Dave Davani combo! Dave's a Hammond player with a great mix of soul jazz and R&B in his grooves – very much the best sort of instrumental work you might expect from London in the swinging 60s – a great blend of American influences and UK mod styles. The rest of the group includes guitar, bass, and drums – plus a bit of vocals and Latin percussion from Beryl Wayne. The groove here is clearly a precursor to the James Taylor Quartet, and the overall sound is better than some of the more famous groups from the time – such as the combos of Brian Auger or Graham Bond. The set features tracks from Dave's Parlophone album, a few other singles, and even 4 previously unissued tracks from the same time – with titles that inlcude "Big Bossa Man", "Working Out", "Funky Mama", "Sack O Woe", "Boot Leg", "Harlem Waltz", and "Pig Foots".

Guido & Maurizio DeAngelisContinuavano A Chiamarlo Trinita ... LP
RCA (Italy), 1971. Near Mint- ... $79.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rare original pressing!)
