Walter Bishop JrCoral Keys ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The keys are coral, and the sound is sublime – one of the greatest albums ever from pianist Walter Bishop Jr, and proof that he can really stretch out, given the right setting! The piano here is all acoustic, but there's an almost-electric vibe to the date – long, open tracks that sway and swell with some great spiritual energy – made even more wonderful by work from reedman Harold Vick, who plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax on the record – and makes it one of his best recordings ever! The reedwork alone is worth the price of admission – but the rhythms are also great too – a mix of soulful, modal, and some slight funky bits – handled by Reggie Johnson on bass, and either Idris Muhammad or Alan Benger on drums. Woody Shaw plays trumpet on some cuts, too – and titles include "Coral Keys", "Soul Turn Around", "Freedom Suite", "Track Down", "Waltz For Zweetie", and "Three Loves". CD
(Remastered with updated artwork and new liner notes.)

AvengersEveryone's Gonna Wonder ... CD
Parlophone/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Not the American Avengers punk group from the San Francisco scene of the late 70s – nor the UK television duo of Emma Peel and John Steed – but a totally great late 60s group from New Zealand, and one who've got a beautifully baroque sense of psych to their sound! The group have maybe the same lofty approach that the Bee Gees were using on their own sublime late 60s records, but the sound here is a bit more stripped down, gritty, and garagey – with the higher elements coming both from the way the group harmonizes, and creatively uses conventional small group instrumentation – with these deft turns of instrumental phrase that illuminate the darker corners of the songs in a really great way. The package brings together a host of rare singles, mostly recorded in New Zealand by the Parlophone label – and also even includes some very cool radio spots too! 27 tracks in all – with titles that include "Days Of Pearly Spencer", "Love Hate Revenge", "Midnight Visitation", "Sunshine Lady", "Everyone's Gonna Wonder", "Take My Hand", "Night In The City", "Sally", "September Winds", "What Price Love", "Flower Girl", "Out Of Sight Out Of Mind", "Love Is A One Way Ticket", "Fisherwoman", "Night Time", and "Waterpipe".

BreakwaterBreakwater ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

✨✧ Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good ... $199.99
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG & 9M etch, and ear. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Wail Bait". Cover has some edge wear, with a small name in pen and a vintage price sticker on back.)

Run The JewelsRTJ3 (with foldout cover poster, booklet and sticker sheet) ... CD
Mass Appeal, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
A vital third act in the thankfully ongoing RTJ saga! The first album was unsurprisingly excellent, but surprisingly popular. The second album not only turned out to be a bigger hit, it was also a creative peak for both El-P and Killer Mike – which is really saying something. So the stakes were high for RTJ3, but the duo rises to the occasion with the biggest sounding, hardest hitting effort yet! El-P's production is a the perfect balance of classic era inspired boombap and his totally distinctive, icy electric sound – and the breathless rhymes by both, but especially Killer Mike are powerful to say the least. Includes "Down" feat Joi Gilliam, "Talk To Me", "Legend Has It", "Call Ticketron", "Hey Kids" feat Danny Brown, "Stay Gold", "Thieves! (Screamed The Ghost)" feat Tunde Adebimpe, "2100" feat Boots, "Thursday In The Danger Room" (feat Kamasi Washington), "A Report To The Shareholders/Kill Your Masters". CD
(Indie exclusive version – same great album at a lower price than the big boxes and chain stores!)

✨✧ BreakwaterBreakwater/Splashdown (with bonus track) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark pairing of records from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! The first album, the initial offering from Breakwater, is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". Splashdown has a perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, who were one of the reigning champions of the scene! Rhythms are often upbeat, but not in a disco or club-oriented way – and the instrumentation is tight, but never slick or smooth – always nicely funky with a nice little crackle, even on the mellow cuts – in a way that's opened up this album to new audiences for many years. This set's got a nice bit of moog that wasn't on the group's first – used almost in Mizell-like to further enhance the sound – and titles include the classics "Say You Love Me Girl", "Let Love In", "Time", and "The One In My Dreams". CD also features a bonus track – "No Limit (ext version)". CD

✨✧ ArtisticsWhat Happened ... CD
Brunswick, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch at the time, save maybe The Four Tops! Yet the style's way different than Motown, too – very much in that loping Brunswick soul style of the time, which means there's all these great grooves that really keep things going – even at mellower moments. Eugene Record produced and wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "What Happened", "Walking Tall", "With These Hands", "Why Did She Have To Leave Me", "When I'm Not Around", "Yesterday's Girl", and "Price Of Love".

✨✧ Stan KentonStan Kenton Conducts The Jazz Compositions of Dee Barton ... CD
Capitol, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too academically so – that perfect balance of swinging and thinking that marks some of the best Kenton albums over the years. All numbers are awash in those great Kenton tones and colors we love so much – and the group here features Mike Price on trumpet, Dick Shearer on trombone, Ray Reed on alto & flute, Mike Altschul on tenor, and Don Bagley on bass – as well as Kenton on piano and Barton on drums. Titles include "Man", "Lonely Boy", "Singing Oyster", "Dilemma", "Three Thoughts", "A New Day", and "Woman". CD

✨✧ Joao BoscoO Bebado E A Equilibrista ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mix of lively samba and mellower moments from Joao Bosco – and a set that mostly sticks to the best acoustic spirit of his 70s classics! Joao's one of those Brazilian singers that's always able to grab us, even though we can't understand the language – and there's a personal quality to the performances here that's really great – a great balance that really makes for a vibrant set, even when things are intimate. The set appears to compile tracks together from other albums – and titles include "Kid Cavaquinho", "O Bebado E A Equilibrista", "Dois Pra La Dois Pra Ca", "Caca A Reposa", "De Frente Pro Crime", "Falso Brilhante", "Agnus Sei", "O Rancho Da Goiabada", and "Bijuterias".

✨✧ VariousLounge De Luxe (3CD box set) ... CD
Pulse/Castle (UK), 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
60 killer tracks of British loungecore material – packaged in a nicely priced 3CD set! A number of these tracks are from the legendary Pye records catalog – and you might already have them on other Sequel/Castle reissues, but there's plenty of good bits to go around here, and the selection of material is great. We can't even begin to let you know all the titles here – but we can tell you that the set's a great one if you like the Sound Spectrum/Easy Project kind of sound. Titles include "Love Today, Cry Tomorrow" by Cyril Stapleton, "Turnpike Lane" by Peter Moore, "Call Me" by Johnny Patrick, "Walk On The Wild Side" by Alan Tew, "Image" by Sounds Orchestral, "Tangerine" by Harry Roche Constellation, "Girl Talk" by Roy Budd, "Shaft" by The Button Down Brass, "Herbin" by Tony Hatch, "Norwegian Wood" by Parrafin Jack Flash, "Le Blon" by City Of Westminster Strings, "Kinda Kinky" by Ray McVay Sound, and lots lots more!
