Dining RoomsTre (US version) ... CD
Guidance, 2003. Used ... $5.99
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot more than simple tricks and gimmicks. There's loads of really solid tunes in here – sly numbers that sneak up on you with a subtle approach to the craft, gently burrowing in and taking root – somehow making the album that much more compelling overall. A number of tracks have some wonderfully languid vocals, some male and some female – and these tunes fall nicely next to instrumental numbers with a very evocative approach. Titles include "Anima Per Amarti", "Tunnel", "La Citta Nuda", "Fluxus", "Flamenco Sketches", "Dreamy Smiles", "You", "African Loungesters", and a nice cover of Sun Ra's "Astro Black"! CD

✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsBlack Christ Of The Andes ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways/Saba, 1963. Used ... $6.99
A landmark album – and one of the best records you'll ever find by Mary Lou Williams! The record's a mixture of jazz and spiritual themes, and it features Mary Lou's piano set in some super-hip jazz arrangements that include players like Grant Green, Budd Johnson, Larry Gales, Melba Liston, Ben Tucker, and Percy Heath. The bass and piano work is amazing, and many tracks have a dark groove that's very subtle, but very compelling. About half the tunes feature hip choral vocalizing – in the mode of some of the Donald Byrd or Max Roach albums from the same time – mostly handled by the group of Howard Roberts. Includes the classic groover "A Grand Nite For Swinging", plus "A Fungus Amongus", "Anima Christi", "Miss DD", "The Devil", "It Ain't Necessarily So", and "My Blue Heaven". Great stuff all around – and even better than we're describing it! CD adds some extra tracks to the original recdording, too – with titles that include "Koolbonga", "Forty Five Degree Angle", "Nicole", "Chunka Lunka", and "Praise The Lord". CD

✨✧ Arild AndersenGreen Shading Into Blue ... LP
ECM, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal 70s side from bassist Arild Andersen! Green Shading Into Blue has a sound that's as evocative as its title – a rich combination of tones, sounds, and moments from a quartet that features Arild Andersen on bass, Juhani Aaltonen on sax and flute, Lars Jansson on piano and a bit of keyboards, and Pal Thowson on drums and percussion. The reeds are especially nice – arcing over the top of the tunes in a spatial contrast to the mellower tones of Andersen's bass – and titles include "Anima", "Jana", "Terhi", "Radka's Samba", and "The Guitarist".

✨✧ Milton NascimentoUma Travessia – 50 Anos De Carreira Ao Vivo (DVD) ... DVD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best albums we've heard from Milton Nascimento in years – and a really beautiful live performance that pays tribute to his 5 decades in music! The performance has a crisp, personal quality we don't always hear in Milton's studio work these days – and the band worked with Nascimento on the arrangements, which have just the right mix of complexity and intimacy to recall his corner club years – and still bring out all the best aspects in his vocals. Of course, it helps that most of the tunes here are classics – and even later numbers seem to benefit from the old school handling of the set – as you'll hear on titles that include "Anima", "Lagrimas Do Sul", "Cais", "Vera Cruz", "Para Lennon E McCartney", "Cancaoes E Momentos", "Travessia", "Raca", "Maria Maria", and "Amor De Indio".

✨✧ VariousInternational New Jazz Meeting – Burg Altena 1972 to 1973 (8CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1972/1973. New Copy 8CD ... Out Of Stock
A double-whammy of a package – one that's like attending a totally hip festival of avant jazz, and finding a time machine to take you there in the process! This overstuffed box brings together recordings from two years' worth of the Burg Altena International New Jazz Meeting in Germany – 4CDs from 1972, and 4 from 1973 – packaged in a very cool box that features loads of photos, and reprints of pages from the programs to both festivals too! But the music here is what really matters – as the performances are all long, often freely improvised, and usually much more way-out than the material you'd hear from any of these players on record. Plus, the choice of musicians is quite unique – some familiar faces from the European underground, but also some real surprises, too – at a level that makes this collection a bit different than others of its nature. The 1972 discs features full sets by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, a quintet led by keyboardist Wolfgang Dauner with guitarist Attila Zoller, reedman Phil Woods European Rhythm Machine with Gordon Beck on electric piano, a duet between Jan Frederyk Dobrowolski on piano and Jacec Bednarek on bass, a quintet led by reedman/violinist Michal Urbaniak with Urszula Dudziak on voice and Adam Makowicz on electric piano, a quartet led by vibist/pianist Karl Berger with Ingrid Berger on voice and Peter Kowald on bass, and the Scandinavia New Jazz Group – with Bobo Stenson on electric piano, Lennart Aberg on tenor, Kjell Westling on soprano sax, Palle Danielsson on bass, and Bengt Berger on drums. 1973 is equally exciting – a performance of the fantastic Anima trio with Paul Fuchs on reeds, Limpe Fuchs on drums and voice, and Friedrich Gulda on acoustic and electric piano; a quintet led by trumpeter Terumasa Hino with Mikio Masuda on piano and Motohiko Hino on drums; the Theo Loevendie Consort, with Theo on alto and soprano, Hans Dulfer on tenor and flute, Martin Altena on bass, and Leo Cuypers on piano; Tune For Bassclarinets with the named instrument played by the quartet of Gunter Hampel, Willem Breuker, Michel Pilz, and Jef Sicard; and the Reform Art Unit, which includes Franz Kogelmann on trumpet, Fritz Novotny on reeds, Sepp Mitterbauer on pocket and regular trumpet, and Giselherr Smekal on organ and piano. Hours of music – and a wonderful package overall! CD

✨✧ ExploitCrisi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CGO/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A prog session from early 70s Italy – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than most of its contemporaries, possibly because it was issued by the tiny CGO record label, which mostly specialized in sound library sessions! The group's a trio, with some especially wonderful basslines and organ – used in ways that are as freewheeling as bigger Italian groups of the same style, but recorded with a rawer edge – one that makes that bass sound really sinister, and which has the drums coming on with full frenzy, but never dominating the mix too much – which really lets us hear all those wonderful solos on organ! And while there is a bit of vocals on the recording, most of the set is instrumental - with a focus on organ, bass, and drums that's got almost a bit of sound library funk in the overall conception – save for the longer runs on the solos, and the damn dextrous quality of all the players. Titles include "Pazzia", "Crisi", "Speranza", "La Tua Pelle Scotta", and "L'Anima Nuda". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSuper Animated Breaks & SFX – Mixed By Muro ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from DJ Muro – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how much we love his other projects! This totally wonderful set has Muro mixing it up with snippets of songs from Japanese animated work of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – very cool, very groovy cuts that bring together funky rhythms, jazzy solos, weird electronics, and plenty more – all then woven by Muro into this stunning mix of sounds that includes bits from 37 different songs! All the titles and information are in Japanese – but the feel of the set is like some of the best funk soundtrack work you love from the 70s – from American blacksploitation to the best in European cop and crime. And with Muro on the decks, the mix is perfect – done with the same sort of genius as his Fender Rhodes mixes from a few years back! CD

Egisto MacchiBiologia Animale Et Vegetale (180 gram pressing – 3LP set with download) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy 3LP ... $49.99
Not the fauna and flora you might expect from the title – and instead, a collection that's every bit as heady as some of Egisto Macchi's other sound library work from the time – very offbeat, very unusual, and pretty downright spooky! The sounds here are almost more what you'd expect from the Italian experimental scene on Cramps Records than the usual sound library material – as Macchi works his instruments in so many different ways and modes, often getting weird tones from a piano, making percussion sound coldly melodic, and working in all these other soundshapes that create a nice sense of mystery and tension! And throughout, there's always a return to tunefulness – a sense of melody that can come through the darkness, sometimes at the weirdest moments – and further enforce our sense that Macchi is one of the true geniuses of this overlooked scene. Titles include "Germi", "Dinosauri", "Microscopio II", "Boscimani", "Stadi Embrionali", "Cuore", "Plancton", and "Rane E Rospi". LP, Vinyl record album

Megalodon CollectiveAnimals ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
A really fantastic group, and one who've got a very unique way of forging together their bold work on reeds! The tracks are short, and have an arranged, angular vibe – but also plenty of free action in the individual voices of the musicians – who include Martin Myhre Olsen on alto and soprano sax, Karl Hjalmar Nyberg on alto and clarinet, and Peter Kraft on tenor and baritone – plus Karl Bjora on guitar, Aaron Mandemann on bass, and both Henrik Lodoen and Andreas Skar Winther on drums! This unique instrumental lineup is even more exciting on record than on paper – and the music is some of the freshest we've heard in years from the Scandia scene – and that's really saying a lot. Titles include "Plutonia", "On The Beach", "Black Bear Creek", "Tree Of Redemption", "Encouraging Dylan", and "Moby". CD

Abstract instrumentals by producer/beatmaker Samiyam – on his Stones Throw debut – with just a couple of vocal cuts with guests Jeremiah Jae & Oliver the 2nd, Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt! Lots of cool, oddball samples on this one, with a timeless sense of tripped out beatcraft. Good stuff.

Cedar WaltonAnimation ... LP
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of Cedar Walton's mid 70s funky jazz efforts – acoustic keys often traded for electric piano, grooving with a funky bigger band, almost in a Ramsey Lewis mode – a really great shift that makes the record a nice change from the usual Walton groove! Cedar's a lot busier on the keys than Ramsey was at the time, though – not as kicked-back Fender Rhodes as he is keeping up a tight and soulful fusion groove. The approach is quite different from Walton's other albums of earlier years, but actually works quite well – and the album's a tasty set of smoother soul and funk-infused numbers, with a hint of Brazilian touches as well! Tracks include "Another Star", "Charmed Circle", "Jacob's Ladder", "Precious Mountain", "If It Could Happen", and "Ala Eduardo". LP, Vinyl record album

Twelve different animals are featured, from the fierce, man-eating leopard, to the playful vervet monkey, the timid hyrax, the mighty rhinocerous, the peaceful and beautiful zebra, the strange wildebeest, the regal lion, the cackling hyena, the vicious wild dog, the crafty silver-backed jackal, the enormous elephant and the bovine hippopotamus.

✨✧ AnimalsAnimalism ... LP
MGM, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure burning soul from The Animals – a nicely stripped-down set that revels in older R&B styles – cooked up with a version of the group that features Dave Rowberry on Hammond and lots of screaming vocals from Eric B! The original Animals vibe is opened up a bit more with some heavier sounds that reflect the change of moves at the time – but overall, the tracks are mostly shortish and respectful to the roots that inspired the group – in a way that helps bring together music from a range of different sources. Titles include versions of Fred Neil's "Other Side Of Life", Zappa's "All Night Long", Sam Cooke's "Shake", Donovan's "Hey Gyp", and Ray Charles' "Hit The Road Jack" – plus "Smoke Stack Lightning", "Rock Me Baby", "Outcast", "Louisiana Blues", and "Going Down Slow".

✨✧ Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWinds Of Change ... LP
MGM, 1967. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Winds Of Change are definitely afoot in the sound of The Animals – as the album's one of their most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer around the drums that really spaces things out, and almost gives a Velvets sort of feel to the proceedings. The group's bluesier roots are still in place at times – but these have also been tripped-out and abstracted too, in modes that are a few years ahead of other blues rock combos on the rise. Titles include "It's All Meat", "Winds Of Change", "Poem By The Sea", "Yes I Am Experienced", "Hotel Hell", "San Franciscan Nights", and "Man Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John AbercrombieAnimato ... CD
ECM, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing soundshapes from guitarist John Abercrombie – a set that strongly follows in the tradition of his ECM work of the 70s, but also pushes at the edges a bit, too! Abercrombie plays electric, in that haunting, ethereal style of his – and also uses a guitar synthesizer too, but in relatively subtle ways that spin out in space nicely – setup in a trio with drummer/percussionist Jon Cristensen, with additional keyboards from Vince Mendoza – who composed a number of tracks in just the right mood for Abercrombie. As usual, the best moments on the record are those when John focuses strongly on tone – and there's plenty of those throughout – on titles that include "Agitato", "First Light", "Single Moon", "Right Now", "Last Light", and "Bright Reign".

MGM/BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Another gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". CD

✨✧ Nico FidencoLe Inibizioni Del Dottor Gaudenzi, Vedovo, Col Complesso Della Buonanima ... CD
GDM/Legend (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title's a long one, but the music here is short and peppy – a set of really lovely little melodies from the great Nico Fidenco – pulled from a film score in the time before he'd moved over to completely sex-drenched soundtracks! There's some nice whimsy at times – melodies that recall an earlier generation of Italian comedy, but which come across here in groovier 70s modes – sometimes a bit jazzy, sometimes with some of the mod styles of the previous few years of Italian scoring, and at other times more just in a playful mode. The CD adds in a huge amount of music to the original stereo album – by coming up with an additional 19 mono tracks from the film – for over 70 minutes of sound! Titles include "Il Vedovo Fugge", "A Sweet Goodnight Kiss", "Katia", "Vertigine Shake", and "Non Me Ne Va Bena Una". CD
(Limited edition of 500 copies.)
