AmericaHearts ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good ... $4.99
Warm wonderful work from America – keenly collaborating here with producer George Martin, who helps them take their already-great sound into a whole new dimension! Martin's got a wonderfully smooth touch on his studio work here – cool, compressed, and just right for the group's harmony approach – yet never in ways that are slick or sleepy at all! If anything, there might even be more intimacy to these songs than on the group's initial records – and the best vocal and acoustic touches are still preserved nicely amidst some larger lovely arrangements from George. Titles include "Sister Golden Hair", "Midnight", "Bell Tree", "Old Virginia", "People In The Valley", "Seasons", and "Daisy Jane". LP, Vinyl record album

AmericaHoliday ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A perfect pairing of talents – the sublime vocals of America, and the genius studio talents of George Martin – who turns in some of his best production work since The Beatles! The album's one of the richest to date from America – shaking slightly free of the folksy elements of their previous sets, with some fuller backings arranged by Martin, yet still hanging onto a bit of acoustic instrumentation – and finding a way to blend the whole thing together that still holds onto all their greatness! Tunes are almost even more personal than before – and titles include "Tin Man", "Miniature", "Hollywood", "Baby It's Up To You", "You", "Old Man Took", and "Mad Dog". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ United States Of AmericaUnited States Of America (mono) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Columbia, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... On November 24, 2017
One of THE greatest experimental rock albums of the 60s – a landmark effort from a short-lived group that included avant musicians Joe Byrd and Gordon Marron! The group's got a really tremendous sound – part psyche, part electronic, and part folk rock – all put together in a freewheeling style that cares little for genre or convention – and which must have really shook the roots of Columbia Records when they submitted the tape for this set! The instrumentation on the set should be enough to pop your cork – as the group uses ring modulator, electric drums, electric harpsichord, organ, calliope, and other early electronic instruments – but their sound is topped off with some really beautiful vocals from singer Dorothy Moskowitz, adding a light touch that really makes for a strange juxtaposition! The lyrics are a bit poetic and trippy – in a good way – and titles include "The American Metaphysical Circus", "Garden Of Earthly Delights", and "Cloud Song".

Luis BacalovCarrefour/Sistemo L'America E Torno ... 7-inch
RCA/Four Flies (Italy), 1974/1976. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
One of the funkiest tunes we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – quite different than both the western and sentimental soundtrack material that's usually his better-known work! "Carrefour" has a wicked drumbreak at the start – snapping under cool wah-wah guitar that's very loose and open – while a bassline kicks in and makes the whole thing even better, and organ, tenor, and percussion build as the tune moves on! "Sistemo L'America" has lots of percussion right at the start – funky congas next to more great bass – topped with tinkling piano, sweet flute, and some very nice organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoCertain Blacks (Inner City) ... LP
America/Inner City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers! The centerpiece of the album is the extended track "Certain Blacks (Do What They Wanna)" – done in a beautiful mix of politics and free group improvisation that come across with amazing power and clarity – making the piece one of the best translations of the Chicago AACM spirit to the European scene. Other tracks on the session include the soulfully spiritual number "One For Jarman", which captures the group at a uniquely laidback level – and the bluesy "Bye Bye Baby", which features one of the few pairings of the group with Chicago Beau and harmonica player Julio Finn.

Paul BleyImprovisie ... CD
America/Bamboo (France), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Incredible work from Paul Bley – and a record that captures him in his excellent electric period, working in a different setting than we've heard him elsewhere! The group on the set is a trio – one that matches Bley's work on electric piano and synthesizer with percussion from Han Bennink and vocals, piano, bass, and additional synthesizer from a young Annette Peacock! Peacock is especially restrained on the record – especially if you only know her later, straighter work – and her contribution here is wonderfully subtle and extremely lovely. Side one features the track "Improvisie", a free improvisation with Bley on electric piano and synthesizer – and tonalities are as "out" as the playing, which is generally quite spacious and dynamic – though hardly quiet. The second side features a Peacock tune titled "Touching" that's a bit more intense – very much in the spirit of the work on the first side, and a unique slice of magic from this one-off session! CD

A stunning session, and proof that Dizzy never slept on his playing – even in the 70s! The record is a crack small group set recorded in Paris, and featuring very long tracks that let Dizzy really stretch out on his solos. Kenny Clarke is on drums, and he does some amazing work on the LP's version of "Manteca", which has a great breakbeat at the intro, then grooves along funkily for 13 minutes! The whole set's beautiful, and the other titles include "Brother K", "Wheatleigh Hall", and "Alone Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Roswell RuddRoswell Rudd ... LP
America (France), 1965. Near Mint- ... $78.99
One of the rarest albums by avant trombonist Roswell Rudd – and one of the best! This little gem was issued by the America label during the glory days of the Paris free jazz scene, but it actually was recorded in the Netherlands in 1965, with a style that's quite similar to Rudd's work with the New York Contemporary Five. The group's a quartet with John Tchicai on alto, Louis Moholo on drums, and Finn Von Eyben on bass – playing with a New York "new thing" style that's always been one of our favorite moments in the 60s avant garde. The work is free, but controlled – spacious, yet powerful – and a prime example of the genius that Rudd brought to avant scenes on both side of the Atlantic before his unfortunate years of retirement. Titles include "Jabulani", "Respects", "Old Stuff", and "Sweet Smells". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Anthony BraxtonDonna Lee (limited numbered edition) ... CD
America/Verve, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly our favorite of Anthony Braxton's key French recordings – largely because the record captures him at a point when he was easily skirting between freer and more traditional styles! The group on the set is a quartet with Michael Smith on piano, Oliver Jackson on drums, and Peter Warren on bass – players that are well-suited to work with Braxton on the longer, numerically-named originals on the album – but who also sound incredible on the more straight ahead numbers on the set! The record's almost worth it alone for Braxton's sublime reading of "You Go To My Head" – done as a beautiful exercise in tone and balance that never fails to blow us away. Other tracks include a fiery reading of "Donna Lee", plus 2 more of Braxton's academic compositions. CD

America/Verve, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few rare sessions ever cut by Wayne Shorter's brother, Alan Shorter – a fantastic avant garde trumpet player, and a creative musician who was every bit as talented as his brother, and who had a much farther-reaching sound! This session was recorded in France, and is very much in the spirit of the best work of the BYG/Actuel era – with an incredibly powerful sound that takes the ESP approach to avant jazz, and pushes it to the next leve. The set features a quartet with Johnny Dyani on bass and piano, Gary Windo on tenor, and Rene Agustus on drums and percussion – and amidst all the free playing, there's also internal groove that keeps the whole thing flowing beautifully along. Released only in France, and super hard to find. Tracks include "Beast Of Bash", "Disposition", and "One Million Squared". CD

Two great sides of Mingus, recorded in France in 1970 and originally issued on America records.

✨✧ VariousRiot City – Rocking Northwest Instrumentals ... CD
Jerden/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There must have been something in the water up in the Pacific Northwest back in the 60s – because for some reason, that tiny corner of America was home to a hell of a lot of rocking little combos – a good deal of whom are featured on this set! These guys are so great, they don't need any vocals at all – as most of these Northwest groups manage to say as much with a guitar line, sax solo, or keyboard part as other groups would with a vocal – and we might even say that the lack of lyrics gives these cuts even more of an edge than some of their contemporaries, as there's no outdated lyrical references or silly chorus parts – just searing instrumentation all the way through, played by some hot-blooded young musicians. All cuts come from the Jerden label – although some were never issued back in the day – and the collection features great notes by 60s indie rock historian Alec Palao, who also put the whole thing together. Titles include "Riot City" by Rocky & His Friends, "Sticky" by James Henry & The Olympics, "David's Mood" by Dave Lewis, "Mr Meadowlands" by The Chessmen, "Hitch Hiking Home" by Johnny & The Velvetones, "Purple Peanuts" by The Beachcombers, "Black Cat" by The Checkers, "Excelsior" by The Adventurers, "Driving Home" by Doug Robertson & The Good Guys, and "Banzai Pipeline" by Danny & The Seniors.

Gato BarbieriLast Tango In Paris ... CD
Ryko, 1972. Used ... $11.99
One of the greatest moments ever from saxophonist Gato Barbieri – and that's saying a lot, given that by the time of this recording, he'd already had a great 60s run as an avant jazz musician, and started the 70s with a string of albums that criss-crossed jazz and South American musical styles! Yet Last Tango In Paris may well be Barbieri's crowning achievement – a sublime record that draws on all the richer, more emotive themes of his Latin America projects, but gives them new focus in the arrangements of Oliver Nelson – who ensures that the music is never too cheesy or overdone – quite a feat, given the sexy setting of the film! Gato draws a lot from Argentine tango, but often uses his own sax solos in place of a more familiar bandoneon, although that instrument gets plenty of play too – in a way that pushes the "new tango" mode of the time even farther – especially when set amidst Nelson's wonderful orchestrations. Titles include many versions of the "Last Tango" theme, plus the tracks "Girl In Black", "Jeanne", "Why Did She Choose You?", "It's Over", and "Fake Ophelia". CD

Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock.

That's a really trippy cover on this second album from Blonde On Blonde – and the sound is nicely trippy, too – a bit more complex than on their debut album – with just the right dose of psych elements thrown into the mix of their well-crafted songs! Acoustic guitar actually gets a bit more place in the sound than before, but there's also a balance of more electronic effects, additional percussion, and even some use of banjo and harmonica to give the group a slight roots element they never had before – one that's maybe a bit more in keeping with their Dylan-referenced name, but with a result that's leaning more towards UK acid folk than anything from America. Titles include "Gene Machine", "Sad Song For An Easy Lady", "The Bargain", "The Rut", "Happy Families", and "No 2 Psychological Decontamination Unit". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Stein is in the lead on loads of fantastically sharp guitar lines, Clement Burke gives the music a mighty nice kick on drums, and James Destri brings in a range of keyboard elements that perfectly hang the record between early punk and new wave modes – and maybe underscore some of the beautifully tuneful lead vocals from the great Debby Harry! There's few better places to start if you're looking to leap into Blondie – and titles include the classic "I'm Always Touched By Your Presence Dear", plus "I'm On E", "Fan Mail", "Bermuda Triangle Blues", "Youth Nabbed As Sniper", "I Didn't Have The Nerve To Say No", "Cautious Lip", "Detroit 442", and "Love At The Pier".

James BrownRoots Of Revolution – Classic Federal Recordings 1956 to 1960 ... LP
Southern Routes, Late 50s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 24.99
The "revolution" in the title is certainly well-placed – because right from the start, James Brown was out to forever change the face of music in America! If you only know James from his later funk recordings, or even his big 60s hits, you'll find plenty to be amazed at here – as these early King/Federal recordings have a really raw sound that blends together 50s R&B styles with all those unique vocal, instrumental, and rhythmic twists that James was experimenting with at the time – sometimes with backing vocals from The Famous Flames, sometimes just with the Godfather out front on his own! The collection brings together a few dozen titles from these great early years – with titles that include "No No No No", "Hold My Baby's Hand", "Begging Begging", "I Want You So Bad", "Got To Cry", "Good Good Lovin", "I Know It's True", "I'll Go Crazy", "You've Got The Power", "Wonder When You're Coming Home", "That Dood It", "I Walked Alone", "Love Or A Game", "Chonnie On Chon", "Just Won't Do Right", and the classics "Think" and "Please Please Please".

Jacques CoursilBlack Suite (BYG pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $28.99
Jacques Coursil's "Black Suite" is an album-length composition played by a group that includes Anthony Braxton, Burton Greene, Bebe Guerin, and Arthur Jones. The piece moves along in a way that's similar to some of the extended AACM pieces of the time – with spare free moments, and moody chromatic passages by the larger group. Written as a tribute to the struggles of blacks in America, the piece is a very emotional work that offers some excellent performance by all, especially Braxton, who opens up a bit more than usual here.

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

DD SoundCafe ... LP
Emergency, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Soaring grooves from DD Sound – short for Disco Delivery Sound – a group with European origins, but remixed in America here for the US market! Side one of the album features the side-long title track "Cafe" – a very long number that builds beautifully from percussion, keyboards, and strings – all without vocals! Side two features three shorter numbers – "She's Not A Disco Lady", "Back Street Baby", and "Show Me Your Love" – the first of which has a nice vocoder bit! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, split top seam, and light wear.)

Brian Eno & David ByrneMy Life In The Bush Of Ghosts (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Nonesuch, 1981. Used ... $8.99
A groundbreaking collaboration between Brian Eno & David Byrne – recorded with a spare, stripped down love of electronics and found sound samples – in a mode that would have a huge influence on countless records to come! Part of the set resonates with the quirky grooves found in Byrne's early Talking Heads records – but the overall sound is much more stark than that work, and is characterized by key found vocals and odd ethnic bits that really set the tone for each new tune. Eno's influence is felt strongly in the simplicity of the tracks, and in the darkly resonant production modes – that classic Eno touch used here before it became a bit too trademark, in a way that could still make a record like this sound great, even when coming from major label sources! A key force in shaping countless genres to come in the next 25 years – with great tracks that include "America Is Waiting", "Regiment", "The Jezebel Spirit", "Moonlight In Glory", "A Secret Life", "Come With Us", and "Mountain Of Needles". Plus, this new version adds in 7 more bonus tracks that include "Number 8 Mix", "Pitch To Voltage", "Two Against Three", "Vocal Outtakes", and "Defiant" – all a fair bit darker than the original album!

✨✧ Fourth WayFourth Way ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good ... $14.99
A killer album from funky jazz combo The Fourth Way – one of the best groups of the progressive jazz era in America, thanks largely to the work of its excellent members! First to get big credit is Mike Nock – the Aussie pianist who worked with Yusef Lateef in the mid 60s, and really came into his own by the time of this album – grooving on electric piano in a stone cold way that still sounds great today, and also doing wonderful on the acoustic keys. Next up is Michael White, one of the few jazz violinists to really know how to groove – and how to avoid getting too flowery at the wrong moments. The group's completed by a fantastic rhythm team – drummer Eddie Marshall and bassist Ron McClure, who plays a range of electrified basses! The album kicks off with the incredible break track "Everyman's Your Brother", and the whole thing's great – with tracks that include "Bucklehuggin", "Dance Of The Mechanical Men", "Openings", "Gemini Trajectory", and "The Sybil". LP, Vinyl record album

Free Jazz WorkshopInter Frequences (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bisou/Souffle Continu (France), 1973. New Copy ... $23.99
An overlooked moment on the French free jazz scene at the start of the 70s – and a completely homegrown effort throughout! Unlike the famous albums in the initial wave of BYG and America label releases, which often featured American musicians joining overseas players – this set is a completely French outing, and shows a remarkable sense of energy and spontaneous creativity – a fresh fire that matches the FMP scene in Germany for imagination and power, but cast out in different ways that show the changed sense of style and relationships that were brewing in France. Imagine some of the Saravah Records material, played more freely – and you'll get part of the vibe here – but there's also a very special, very unique quality throughout. Players include Jean Bolcato on bass, Jean Mereu on trumpet, Maurice Merle on soprano and alto sax, Patrick Vollat on piano and prepared piano, and Christian Rollet on drums. Titles include "Sirene", "Ode A Lon Chaney", "Inter Frequences", "Air Perdue", and "Sphinx". LP, Vinyl record album

Fabio FrizziZombi 2/Un Gatto Nel Cervello ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1979/1990. Used ... $11.99
A pair of weird soundtracks from Italian soundtrack heavy Fabio Fizzi – the stylistically sprawling music for Zombi 2 (released in America as Zombie) and some later compositions for Un Gatto Nel Cervello! The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to electronics reminiscent of John Carpenter, to African percussion. Wild stuff for a movie about Zombie carnage – and yes, that's the movie with the zombie-shark faceoff! Un Gatto Nel Cervello finds Frizzi working in a more classically soundtracky style – but it's done on synthesizers, which gives it seedy undercurrent! Both soundtracks on a single CD – with each consisting of multiple title theme sequences – and featuring 23 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Joao GilbertoLive In Montreux ... LP
Elektra, 1987. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A later album by Joao – but a really lovely live performance that sparkles with the warmth and intimacy of his earlier studio albums! The album's got a total of 11 tracks, all recorded at the Montreux jazz festival in 1985 – with no backing for Joao's voice other than his light lively acoustic guitar, which holds up extremely well over the performance. Titles include "Estate", "Menino Do Rio", "Adeus America", "Preconceito", "Sandalia De Prata", and "Sem Compromiso". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Haden & The Liberation Music OrchestraNot In Our Name ... CD
Verve, 2005. Used ... $6.99
Our favorite side of Charlie Haden – one that we love from classic recordings on Impulse and ECM – and heard for the first time in years on this new album of gentle protestations against the current state of the US! The album features wonderfully evocative arrangements from Carla Bley – who also plays piano on the sessions, and co-leads the group of younger players with Haden. Tunes are a tapestry of themes designed to offer a different vision of America than the one that's currently getting dragged through the mud in a host of foreign relations disasters and poorly-planned military outings – and Haden and Bley draw from a surprising range of sources for the material in the set. Titles include Haden's "Not In Our Name", Bley's "Blue Anthem", Pat Metheney's "This Is Not America", Ornette Coleman's "Skies Of America", and versions of "Amazing Grace", "Adagio", "Lift Every Voice & Sing", "America The Beautiful", and "Goin Home".

✨✧ Joe HarriottFree Form (UK pressing) ... CD
Redial (UK), 1961. Used ... $19.99
Essential! This is the landmark album that forever put saxophonist Joe Harriott on the map, and it's a brilliant batch of tracks that prove that Harriott was advancing the jazz avant garde in England as much as players like Ornette Coleman and Cecil Taylor were advancing it in America. Despite the "free form" of the title, the tracks are more "new thing" – somewhat structured, with a rhythmic approach that's still a little straight, but solos that go nice and outside. Joe's overall conception is a beautiful mix of angular thinking with freely expressed soulful emotion – and the record's one that ranks up there with the 10 most groundbreaking of the 60s! The group's about as fantastic as you could ever expect from England at the time – with Shake Keane on trumpet, Pat Smythe on piano, Coleridge Goode on bass, and Phil Seamen on drums – and titles include "Formation", "Coda", "Abstract", "Straight Lines", and "Impression".
