Ava CherryStreetcar Named Desire (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Gold Coast/Gold Legion, 1982. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
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". CD features two bonus tracks – 12" remixes of "Awkward Situation" and "Streetcar Named Desire". CD

New Elmer BernsteinAva Collection (Walk On The Wild Side/Carpetbaggers/Caretakers/Baby The Rain Must Fall/To Kill A Mockingbird/Movie & TV Themes) ... CD CD format
AVA/Intrada, 1962/1963/1964/1965. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of 60s soundtracks from Elmer Bernstein – all originally issued by the indie Ava label, where Bernstein was one of the biggest stars! Elmer had already had a number of years experience working in Hollywood – including some classic late 50s scores that perfectly mixed jazz with larger orchestrations, in a style he explored even more fully on some of the best material here. Yet some of the other soundtracks show Bernstein's increasingly good ear for a dramatic moment – the kind of under-done passages that really had a way of doing a lot with just a little – lessons learned from jazz, then recast back onto larger arrangements, but without any of the Hollywood bombast of decades before. These moments really make the soundtracks sparkle – bits of illumination that resonate strongly throughout the 3CD passage, and draw some surprising links between all the different film scores presented within. The set features five full soundtrack albums – Walk On The Wild Side, The Carpetbaggers, The Caretakers, Baby The Rain Must Fall, and To Kill A Mockingbird – plus the additional Movie & TV Themes record by Bernstein.

AVA/VSOP, 1963. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
One of the greatest records ever cut by pianist Pete Jolly! Little Bird is a sweet set of instrumentals featuring a trio of Chuck Berghofer on bass and Larry Bunker on drums, plus Howard Roberts on guitar and Kenny Hume on added percussion. The centerpiece here is Jolly's groovy hit version of "Little Bird", a jaunty little soul jazz number – but the whole album swells in an easily swinging groove that holds up throughout. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "To Kill A Mockingbird", "Never Never Land", and "Three Four Five". CD

Pete JollySweet September ... CD CD format
AVA/VSOP, 1963. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
Great work from one of the grooviest pianists of the 60s – a player who could always keep things lively and swinging, even in a small combo session! The album's one of Pete Jolly's gems for the Ava label – a follow-up to his semi-hit Little Bird, and like that one, a record done with some slight additional help from Howard Roberts on a few tracks. But this time around, Roberts' work is only on a few of the titles – leaving Pete's core trio to take over most of the grooves themselves, building strongly from warmly rolling rhythms by Chuck Berghofer on bass and Larry Bunker on drums, topped by Jolly's surprisingly soulful lines on piano – all in a blend that reminds us of the great balance between lyricism and groove we always find in the best work of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include "Sweet September", "Can't We Be Friends", "Any Number Can Win", "Soft Winds", "Oleo", "Yours Is My Heart Alone", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", and "Kiss Me Baby". CD

Pete Jolly & His TrioHello, Jolly! ... LP LP format
AVA, 1964. Very Good+ ... $0.49
Not the Hello Dolly album you might guess from the title, but instead a wonderfully groovy batch of tracks from pianist Pete Jolly – an album done with great larger arrangements from Dick Hazard and Dick Grove, and a tight vibe that makes the set one of Pete's grooviest albums ever! Pete's incredibly fluid on the keys of the piano – hitting with a hard punch on the left hand to really underscore the snapping rhythms of the tunes, but flying free on the right with these lyrical lines that are simply beautiful – really on a par with the best 60s work from Vince Guaraldi, and the kind of record that should have more folks talking about Jolly's genius. The core group features Howard Roberts on guitar, Chuck Berghofer on bass, and Nick Martinez on drums – and Jolly's one hell of a pianist in this sort of setting – and it always seems that when he's got a big group behind him, he really lets loose with some great solos, freed from the rhythm of the tracks so that he can skate over the top of the songs in a magical way! Tracks include "Hard Day's Night", "People", "Moment Of Truth", "First Of May", "Blues Two Ways", and "The Grass Is Greener". LP, Vinyl record album

AVA, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A sweet little date for the AVA label – one that features the tenor and clarinet of Herb Steward set amidst lush strings from Dick Hazard! The sound is very dreamy and laidback – a great sort of late nite romantic jazz set – and Steward's horn still comes through strongly, with a deep feeling that really keeps things compelling, even when relaxed. Titles include "Lovely Melody", "So Pretty", "With All My Love", "Indian Summer", "Remember", "Memphis In June", and "When Day Is Done". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the few records ever cut by bassist Ben Tucker – known to most as the composer of 60s jazz hit "Comin' Home Baby", which was riding very high in the charts at the time of this session! The album's a very rhythmic one – with Ben in the lead on bass, working with a combo that includes Larry Bunker on vibes, Victor Feldman on piano, Ray Crawford on guitar, and Carlos Valdez on Latin percussion. Tracks are short, groovy, and have plenty of Latin touches – and titles include "The Message", "Baby You Should Know It", "For Heaven's Sake", and "One for The Woofer". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie BarnetCharlie Barnet ! ? ! ? ... LP LP format
Choreo, 1962. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Later work from Charlie Barnet, but a set that really cooks nicely overall – still with the strong sax tones of earlier years, but also with a groovier sort of sparkle that marks the 60s date of the session! The tunes are short, but Charlie gets plenty of space to do his thing – leading off boldly with a great sense of tone, and blowing with some surprisingly inventive lines as the set rolls on. There's a bit of organ in the mix – uncredited, like the rest of the players – and titles include "Coachella Blue", "Mood Indigo", "Leapin At The Lincoln", "East Side West Side", "The Great Gong Of Hong Kong", and "Tappin At The Tappa".

New A-VillaCarry On Tradition ... LP LP format
Closed Sessions/Daupe (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A sharp, smartly-blueprint era inspired, yet entirely fresh and relevant full length debut from Chicago-based producer, beat battle champion and all around rising talent A-Villa – who slowly but surely put it together over a handful of years – picking up contributions from A-list contributors, including Rapper Big Pooh, Mikkey Halsted, Killer Mike, Chance The Rapper, Oh No, Roc Marciano, AZ, Guilty Simpson, Action Bronson, Kool G Rapp, BJ The Chicago Kid and more! Often times, when you see a producer-driven album with a dozen or more guests, you can expect it to be uneven, or unfocused overall – that is not the case here – quite the opposite, actually – it's a finely composed labor of love from a true blue hip hop head. Solid stuff! Includes "Carry On Tradition" with Rapper Big Pooh & Mikkey Halsted, "The Warrior, The Philospher, & The Rebel" with Lil Fame of MOP, Cormega & Killer Mike, "Live From The Villa" with Action Bronson, Roc Marciano & Willie The Kid, "Tear It Down/AMSW" (feat Blu on the former and Reks & Chaundon on the latter, "A Hustler's Siloloquy" feat Roc Marciano, "The Wild Bunch" feat Oh No, Roc Marciano & Sean Price, "A Day In The Life" feat AZ, Havoc of Mobb Deep, Freeway & Macie Stewart, "Never Give You Up (One For Ava)" feat Rapsody, Guilty Simpson, Villa & Avalyn Villagomez, and more. 16 cuts on 2LPs.

Jan AkkermanJan Akkerman ... CD CD format
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A very different album than usual from Jan Akkerman – but in a really nice way! The album's not nearly as guitar-heavy and rock-leaning as some of Jan's other sets from the 70s – and has a bubbling sort of soul-based finish, one that's arranged by Akkerman with some help from Mike Gibbs – and which almost has a funky dancefloor appeal at times! The jazz component of the record is still relatively strong, in a tripped-out funky fusion way – but there's enough of a consistent pulse to the album to really keep things on track nicely! Includes the spacey "Pavane", which has great keyboards from Joachim Kuhn, and the nicely breaking "Streetwalker" – plus the cuts "Angel Watch", "Crackers", "Skydancer", "Floatin", and "Gate To Europe".

Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A late 70s live set from space jazz/jazz rock guitar guru Jan Akkerman – rolling from spacious, sparely haunting atmospherics to tighter, sax and keys punctuated fusion jams! This live set was his Atlantic followed up his self titled album, and it grooves in similar territory – not as reliant on the more rocking side of his sound, but hardly lacking in spacey dynamics – with more of a fusiony jazz funk vibe in the busier arrangements. Players include Jasper Van't Hoff and Willem Ennes on keys, Cess Van Der Laarse on bass, Tom Barlage on sax, Bruno Castelucci on drums, and Neppie Noya on percussion. Titles include "Transitory", "Skydancer", "Pavane", "Crackers", "Tommy" and "Azimuth". CD

Vick AllenOld School – New Flava ... CD CD format
Waldoxy, 2003. Used ... $7.99
Vick's definitely chosen the title on this one well – as the set's got a great style that takes an older southern soul mode, and updates it a bit with a few modern R&B touches! Vick's vocal modes and themes recall those of an earlier Malaco generation – but the overall production of the set also has some smoother, more urban touches – especially nice on the mellower numbers, which step out in a mode that's almost got a mellow Isleys sort of feel! And as the set goes on, there's some really wonderful slow jams that are well worth the price of the set – and which should make Vick a singer to watch in years to come. Titles include "Marry Me", "I'm Going Home", "Wrong Place Wrong Time", "So Sweet So Fine", "Mr Telephone Man", "A World Where No One Cries", and "Let's Dance (Stepper's rmx)". CD

A great version of "It Sure Is Funky" – a tune originally done as a vocal number by Ripple, but presented here by Amral's Trinidad Cavaliers in a mad bit of steel band funk! The echoey steel is wonderful – and really gives the tune a mighty unusual vibe! Mr Thing re-edits "Ozel's Dance Routine" on the flip – really making the most of the funky drums and freaky guitar while letting the bassline take center stage, and drive the whole thing into freaky Turkish madness! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoJackson In Your House/Message To Our Folks/Reese & The Smooth Ones ... CD CD format
BYG/Snapper (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $17.99 19.98
An incredible package – and one that features three of the most important records ever cut by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago! All three albums were recorded at the Saravah Studios in the summer of 1969 – during a time when the Art Ensemble of Chicago were making big waves on the Parisian scene (including their work in the film Les Stances A Sophie) – and finding a way to refine their new Chicago sound in the world away from the Windy City! These were the albums that really put the Art Ensemble on the map – letting them find new freedoms, and reach new heights in expression – in a mode that even surpassed previous recordings by individual members back home. The lineup is very heavy on reeds – with a variety played by Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman – and features bold trumpet from Lester Bowie, warm basslines from Malachi Favors, and a range of percussion and other instruments by all members of the group! The set comes in a nice book-like cover, with a booklet inside – and titles include "Reese & The Smooth Ones (parts 1 & 2)", "Rock Out", "Brain For The Seine", "Dexterity", "Jackson In Your House", "The Waltz", and "Song For Charles".

Spalax (France), 1973. Used (reissue)... $14.99
The first officially released Lard Free album, from 1972 – a unique blend of free jazz inspired rock and avant proggy sounds! There's a more approachable, less primitive vibe to this set then the earlier recordings eventually released as Unnamed – with hypnotic, accessible soundscapes along with more wigged out strangeness. Artman plays drums, piano and vibes with Herve Eyhani on bass and arp synthesizer, Philiuppe Bolliet on sax and Francois Mativet on guitar. Titles include "Warinobaril", "Hanfleur Ecarlate", "Acide Framboise", "Livarot Respiration" and "Culturez-Vous Vous Meme". CD

Chet AtkinsEclectic Guitar ... CD CD format
RCA/El (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $8.99
Incredible, indelible guitar instrumentals from the early years of Chet Atkins – later to conquer civilization with his 60s Nashville Sound – here with mid 50s guitar exotica that really is eclectic and well ahead of its time! Chet's 60s production work ranges from absolute genius, with interesting writers and vocal talent (Bobby Bare, Roger Miller), to sappy mediocrity with less adventurous artists – but his own records hardly ever lacked imagination. These countryish & jazzier early recordings are by no means an exception! Recorded in both Chicago and Nashville and pulled from his wonderful early LPs for RCA, titles include "Sunrise Serenade", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Caravan", "Mister Sandman", "Minute Waltz", "St Louis Blues", "Alice Blue Gown", "Waltz In A-Flat", "Petite Waltz", "Tenderly", "Intermezzo", "Indian Love Call", "Gavotte In D" and much more.

AtomicHere Comes Everybody ... CD CD format

Quite possibly the greatest album to date from Atomic – a set that steps out with a bold, rich sound right from the start – giving the whole thing the feel of some lost classic slice of avant jazz, but with a freshness that definitely marks the set with plenty of Atomic energy too! The horns are amazing – fierce interplay between the trumpet of Magnus Broo and reeds of Fredrik Ljungvist – locking together at times with these raging lines that have almost an ESP sort of feel – then breaking out with soul-drenching solos on their own – especially when Ljungvist handles the tenor. Paal Nilssen-Love's drums are on fire throughout – Havard Wilk barrels away on piano – and Ingebrigt Haker Flaten rolls things along strongly on bass. Titles include "Morphemes", "HCE", "Milano", "Kreuzberg Variations", "Panama", and "Unity Toccata". CD

Maybe the most brilliant work so far from Atomic – and definite proof that this Swedish ensemble just keeps getting better and better with each new recording! Every player in the quintet is a star in his own right – Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor and baritone sax, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Havard Wilk on piano, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums – but what's really amazing is the way they come together as one for the record – wrapping their strong identities together, and forging out with this focused sound that has a lot more power than ever before! All the musicians know the open space of freedom, but have found a territory that can hold them all – where they can respectfully create this wonderful new sound together – in a mix of modern jazz and avant expression that seems to echo some of the best recent work from Chicago. Titles include "There's A Hole In The Mountain", "Civilon", "Wolf Cage", "Accidentals", "Labyrinths", and "Available Exits". LP, Vinyl record album

Okka Disk, 2004. Used 2CD ... $13.99
They got the title right on this incendiary release, yet another transatlantic love affair between a nice patch of forward thinking Nordic improvisers and some of our own homegrown talent. The School Days quartet is a group that grew out of connections built up through the extended Vandermark/Gustafson relationship, with two of the leading lights of Chicago new school – Vandermark and Jeb Bishop – in the front line teaming up with a European rhyhtm section – Haker Flaten and Nilssen-Love – and taking inspiration from the landmark Lacy/Rudd recordings they derived their name from. As it happens, the rhythm section are from the group Atomic, with whom you may be familiar from their excellent Jazzland recordings, combining the best of the free avant scene with a strong rhythmic underpinning. This set of all original material bristles with energy, as the playing bounces between Ornette-ish phrasing, tightly arranged passages and textural improv. 9 numbers in all, spread out over 2 CDs, including "W Meets A", "Transparent taylor", "Ink Worm", "Kerosene", "Conjugations" and "Dog Days".

CTI/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
CTI Masters, and then some – a collection that features one full album from Patti Austin, plus lots of bonus tracks too! The first 10 tracks on the album comprise the classic End Of The Rainbow debut for CTI – wonderfully warm soul from the great Patti Austin – a key artist in the late 70s, and one who really helped push the music forward with a new sense of sophistication! Patti's got a strongly jazzy vibe here – and works with David Matthews arrangements that are really well put-together – less funky than some of Dave's other work of the period, and filled with these mellow moments that really let Austin's energy flow! The overall feel is a bit like some of Jean Carn's work on Philly International – hip, sophisticated, and filled with plenty of jazz touches – although with an even stronger approach to ballads – and titles include the classic "This Side Of Heaven", plus "More Today Than Yesterday", "Say You Love Me", "In My Life", "Give It Time", and "What's At The End Of A Rainbow". CD then goes onto include 8 more tracks from other CTI albums from Patti – equally great numbers that include "Havana Candy", "I Just Want To Know", "We're In Love", "I Need Somebody", "Lost In The Stars", "Body Language", "Another Nail For My Heart", and "I Want You Tonight".

The style's never too free here – not in an avant jazz way – but the group's definitely opening up a bit more than before, and making even more magic with their music! The lineup has changed a bit from earlier albums from this combo – but key Australian players are still very much on hand – the great Bryce Rhode on piano, Jack Brokensha on vibes, and Errol Buddle on reeds! Rhode is one of the best pianists of the time – sadly overlooked upon his 60s return to Australian (where he made some wonderful records) – and his careful sense of tone really starts things off wonderfully – and brings more out of the vibes than we've ever heard on Brokensha's later records. Titles include the long "Take Three Parts Jazz" suite – plus "Detour Ahead", "I'll Remember April", "Bewitched", and "Swingin Goatsherd Blues". CD

Albert AylerImpulse Story ... CD CD format
Impulse, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
Our favorite work by Albert Ayler – material we love even more than his better-known sides for ESP! Although Ayler at ESP definitely set a new level in 60s jazz, we actually really treasure his later sides for Impulse – records that are sometimes not as focused, often a bit failed, but extremely compelling in their use of new modes to explore avant garde jazz! The Ayler heard here is one that's definitely searching – a player who starts out in the bold energy of free solos and limitless expression, but who reigns things in to try to reach new ears – blending influences from soul, rock, and early fusion with his horn – often hitting tones and notes that were never present on sessions for other labels. In a way, the searching quality here is even stronger than in the work of John Coltrane or Archie Shepp from the time – and the 10 track CD is a great introduction to this really compelling chapter of Ayler's career. Titles include "Love Cry", "Bells", "Truth Is Marching In", "Angels", "New Grass/Message From Albert", "Music Is The Healing Force Of The Universe", "Free At Last", and "Water Music". CD

ESP, 1964. Used ... $6.99
A landmark recording – Albert Ayler's first album for the ESP label, and a record that hit the jazz world like a bullet! Spiritual Unity sets the stage for a format that would become huge in the European avant scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and even today – the sax-driven power-trio, tenor against bass and drums, working freely with less rhythmic constraints than before, searching for new sounds and new modes of expression, working through changes in a style first proposed by Sonny Rollins, but taken to new intensity by the New York underground of the 60s. That sound is summed up here perfectly by Ayler, Gary Peacock, and Sunny Murray – working together with an edgey brilliance, on classic tracks that include "Ghosts: First Variation", "Ghosts: Second Variation", "The Wizard", and "Spirits".

A great reworking of this sweet sweet album from Azymuth – served up in a package that features the core original album, plus all the great remixes that came afterward! The core record is heavy Fender Rhodes from Azymuth – sounding almost better here than we've heard them for years! There's a stripped-down, all-classic feel that takes us right back to the group's best work of the 70s – partly because Jose Roberto Bertrami sticks to Fender Rhodes exclusively on the set – using the classic keyboards with a righteous vibe that really brings a hell of a lot of soul to play! And there's also a bit of Incognito help on the production, which helps ensure just the right sound – nothing too modern, nor too gimmicky – just pure Brazilian fusion all the way through – proof that the old ways are still often the best. Titles include "In My Treehouse", "Isso E Partido Alto", "Carnaval Legrand", "Diz No Pe", "Meu Mengo", "Crazy Clock", and "Aurora". The remixes really take off strongly – and push the group's jazzy roots into rich new territory for the clubs – on cuts that include "Aurora (4 Hero rmx)", "In My Treehouse (We Are The Horsemen rmx)", "Ta Nessa Ainda Bicho (Maddslinky rmx)", "Carnaval Legrand (Opolopo rmx)", "Diz No Pe (Kirk Degiorgio rmx)", "Crazy Clock (LTJ Xperience rmx)", and "Ta Nessa Ainda Bicho (Zed Bias 4 x 4 rmx)".
