Ben TuckerBaby, You Should Know It ... LP
AVA, 1963. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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
(Cover has a cutout hole & light wear.)

✨✧ VariousJavanese Court Gamelan Vol 3 ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The special sound of the Javanese gamelan, made even more majestic here on recordings from the royal courts of central Java – beautifully captured here as part of the famous Nonesuch Records gamelan series of the 70s! The music here has a slow-building style that's maybe more formal than some of the more spontaneous gamelan work from Bali – very careful to let each tone of the gongs, tuned drums, and other instruments flow out and resonate in the space of the recording, as each player slowly adds to the mix and creates this hypnotic flow of waves of sound. The approach is completely sublime – and the record is one we go back to again and again over the years – filled with amazing sounds on titles that include "Gendhing Prabu Mataram", "Gendhing Sumyar", "Gendhing Rangu Rangu", and "Golek Lambangsari".

✨✧ VariousLes Annes Saravah – 1967 to 2002 ... CD
Saravah/Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 60s/Early 70s/Late 90s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to the legendary French label Saravah – founded by songwriter Pierre Barouh with his royalties from the worldwide hit "A Man & A Woman" – then run for decades as a model of recording innovation and collaborative creativity! The sound of Saravah is incredibly hard to peg – and we mean that in the best way possible – as the label completely exploded older style of French chanson with experimental work from new talents in the 60s and 70s – then brought in strands of avant jazz, bossa nova, global rhythms, and even some folksy currents too – but all with this very creative, genre-crossing mode that's still without compare all these many years later! The label is best known for its famous records with singer Brigitte Fontaine – who makes an appearance here, but in the company of so many of Saravah's other overlooked talents – in a collection that looks at the early flourishing of recordings in the late 60s and early 70s, then moves into work from the great revival years of the label from the mid 90s onward. This package features notes in both English and French, and includes a lot of Saravah gems we haven't seen reissued elsewhere – titles that include "J'Attendrai" by Fred Poulet, "Maman" by Oscar Castro & Anna Vallejo, "Photo" by Bia, "Afrika Obota" by Pierre Akendengue, "Coeur De Rubis" by Francoise Kucheida, "Signaletique" by Areski & Jacques Higelin, "Le Temps D'Une Vie" by Pierre Barouh & Anna Vallejo, "Femme Parmi Les Femmes" by Francoise Hardy, "La Valse De L'Oubli" by Carole Laure, "Dans Ma Rue" by Areski, "Comme A La Radio" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Tiens J'Ai Dit Tiens" by Jacques Higelin, "Je Hais Le Gosses" by Allain Leprest, and "1962" by Gerard Ansaloni.

✨✧ Patti AustinHavana Candy ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Havana Candy, indeed – as singer Patti Austin's in her sweetest mode of the 70s – stepping off of years of background vocals for others, and really emerging as a great soul star on her own! Patti got the chance to cut some soul singles back in her early days – but work like this really unlocks her jazzier side, too – that spirit she developed in her work with Quincy Jones, taken to even more expressive heights on her own. Arrangements are by Larry Rosen and Dave Grusin – moody, mellow in a style that's perfect for Patti's voice – and players on the set include Grusin on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on keyboards, and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – all-star CTI players who really keep things rights! Titles include "I Need Somebody", "We're In Love", "Lost In The Stars", "Havana Candy", and "I Just Want To Know". CD

Luis BacalovLo Chiamavano Mezzogiorno/The Man Called Noon ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
A richer, more complex soundtrack than you might expect for a spaghetti western – scored by maestro Luis Bacalov with some of the fuller qualities he'd bring to his more famous international work in later years! There's almost a sentimental quality to the record at points – these strings that swell and dip with a subtle sense of melody, before giving way to some darker, much more brooding passages – done with instrumentation that's a lot more spare, and a lot more tense – as stark percussion bits burst out next to moodier tones too. A few warmer moments bubble forth at points, but overall there's a sense of stark tension to the record – on titles that include "Discovering", "Fan", "The Man Called Noon", "Mr Rubble Noon", "In The Fortress", and "Rimes".

Luis BacalovL'Oro Dei Bravados (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Veritano (Japan), 1970. Used ... $28.99
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)... $15.99
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

✨✧ Art BlakeyCaravan ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, and Cedar Walton on piano! The sextet format really pushes the energy of the group – and allows for even more wonderful horn interplay than before – while still allowing for lots of solo space for individual voices. Tracks are long and open, with a bouncing lyrical groove that's more soaring than some of the heavy-hitting earlier albums from Blakey, but no less pleasing – and possibly even a bit more soulful! Titles include "Sweet N Sour", "This Is For Albert", "Skylark", and "Thermo". LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Blavant with Steve OskieYou Only Rock Once ... Book
Running Press, 2011. New Copy ... $5.99 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 ... $14.99
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

✨✧ 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!)

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 ... $8.99
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
