Katsutoshi MorizonoBad Anima ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99
No bad anima here, as the album's a tight, warm set from guitarist Katsutoshi Morizono – arranged by the leader himself, and featuring a few tracks that also include vocals – which add this surprisingly human quality to an otherwise polished fusion album! Morizono's got a great lineup of sharp Japanese musicians on the date – and the album features loads of keyboards mixed with acoustic elements on tenor, soprano sax, and trumpet – on titles that includes the originals "High Tide", "Midnight Waltz", and "Dark Side Of The Fish" – plus a version of Booker T's "Last Tango In Memphis".

Rodrigo LimaSaga ... CD
JSR (Brazil), New Copy 2 CDs ... $7.99
A great debut from Rodrigo Lima – a double-length set that has the guitarist working in modes that range from Brazilian roots to samba jazz, with lots of stops in between! Lima plays acoustic throughout, and with a deftness that rivals some of his Brazilian predecessors – and that includes some of the best bossa and choro talents as well – and the range of settings in the album is varied, but extremely unified too – thanks to a coherent sense of production and presentation that really holds our interest throughout. Rodrigo invited a surprising range of legends to work with him on the album – including Hubert Laws on flute, Hugo Fattoroso on keyboards, Raul De Souza on trombone, Anat Cohen on tenor and clarinet, Mike Mainieri on vibes, and the great Hermeto Pascoal on piano – and songs range from shorter melodies to these lovely long introspections. Titles include "Porta Aflora", "Vida Nova", "Pilotos", "Opa", "Anima 2", "Cancao Praieira", "A Velha Sozinha", and "Nosso Borogodo Coio". CD

VariousBeleza Tropical – Brazil Classics Vol 1 ... LP
Fly/Sire, 1989. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The first-ever record in the Luaka Bop legacy – a massive collection of Brazilian grooves that still serves as one of the best introductions to the music we can think of! Most of the artists here are the bigger names of the MPB generation of the 70s – but many are still very under-represented in the US market – which makes the collection of work here completely essential. The styles range from samba soul of Jorge Ben to the lyrical poetry of Caetano Veloso to the soulful drama of Milton Nascimento – and titles include "Ponta De Lanca Africano" and "Fio Varavilha" by Jorge Ben, "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Quilombo O El Dorado Negro" and "So Quero Um Xodo" by Gilberto Gil, "Quiexa" and "O Leaozinho" by Caetano Veloso, "Sonho Meu" by Maria Bethania & Gal Costa, "Caixa De Sol" by Nazare Pereira, and "Anima" by Milton Nascimento.

✨✧ Bruno NicolaiJustine – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little score for an obscure Jess Franco film – one that's a bit straighter than usual for the director! Bruno Nicolai uses a fair bit of strings in his orchestrations here – never too flowery, but often with a classical-inspired sort of sound that leads to full, complicated scoring that's quite a bit different from some of his other work at the time. There's a nice shift between darkness and light in the music – and this 2015 CD version features 27 tracks in all – a number of which have never been released before now! Titles includ "Amazzoni", "Justine", "Burlesca", "Mercato", "La Cortigiana", and "Il Ritorno", "Passioni Dell'Anima", "Mattutino", "Frottola", "Cherchio Magico", "Il Ghiottone" and many more. CD

Louis ArmstrongI Will Wait For You ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
A completely charming vocal session from Louis Armstrong – done in the later pop years of his life, but a record that's not nearly as well known as his bigger hits for Kapp! Louis works with arrangements from Dick Jacobs – the Brunswick arranger who first provided the early charts for Jackie Wilson – and the style is kind of a 60s update of 20s styles – that retro mode that was showing up in the decade as a few artists like Armstrong were reinvented for the younger generation. But despite the setting, Louis is wonderful throughout – with that honest, raspy tone of later years – and just a bit of trumpet to jazz things up amidst the pop. Titles include "I Will Wait For You", "Sunrise Sunset", "Rosie", "Willkommen", "I Believe", "The Happy Time", and "Talk To The Animals". CD

Jorge BenSacundin Ben Samba ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". CD

✨✧ Ed Bogas/Ray Shanklin/VariousFritz The Cat – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Fantasy, Mid 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each different track – but mostly featuring some older numbers from the Fantasy catalog, plus some key newer tracks for the set that are nice and funky! Original tunes include the bad-rapping "Fritz The Cat", by Ed Bogas and The Watson Sisters – plus the instrumentals "Duke's Theme" and "Bertha's Theme" by Ray Shanklin, and "The Riot" and "Winston" by Ed Bogas. Also includes "Love Light Of Mine" by The Watson Sisters, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, and "Mamblues" by Cal Tjader. LP, Vinyl record album

Giampiero BoneschiWest & Soda ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy ... $17.99
Very cool music for a 60s Italian cartoon set in the west – done in a style that's very different than both the usual animated fare from the time, and more familiar spaghetti western soundtracks! There's definitely some occasional elements that echo the setting, but overall the music is more this wonderful array of short themes that use strings and horns to make these hip musical statements – sometimes brooding, sometimes bold – in ways that are more than vivid enough away from the images on the screen! The record has a bit of wordless vocals from I Cantori Moderni, and some harmonica from Franco De Gemini – and titles include "Drammatico Per Johnny", "Temporale", "Gli Indiani", "West & Soda", "Il Pianista", "Il Cattivissimo", and "Le Ire Di Ursus".

Peter Brotzmann/Fred Van Hove/Han BenninkBrotzmann/Van Hove/Bennink – FMP 130 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
FMP/Trost (Austria), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A seminal set from the European free jazz scene of the 70s – and a record that may well represent the start of a key second chapter of all players involved! While the key tension of many early Peter Brotzmann albums have the saxophonist trying to push his instruments past their normal sonic limits, the approach here is different – in that all of the crazed, complicated, and dissonant sound bursts seem to be based on a stop/start dynamic – real back/forth energy that has the players trading off in a sometime whimsical manner – but still with all the raw power you'd expect! The group seems to be enjoying themselves, too – with lots of weird, borderline oddball reed sounds approximating animal calls, rolling piano lines that seem to be ironic riffs on boogie woogie and rock, and odd tonal shifts that really keep things interesting. The trio features mighty drums and a range of unusual percussion from the great Han Bennink – who also knows how to allow for space as well – plus Brotzmann on alto, tenor, baritone, bass sax, and clarinet – plus Fred Van Hove on celeste and piano. Titles include "For Donaueschingen Ever", "Nr 7", "Gere Bij", "Konzert Fur 2 Klarinetten", and "Paukenhandschen Im Blaubeerenwald". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good ... $13.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe FarrellOriginal Album Classics (Joe Farrell Quartet/Outback/Penny Arcade/Upon This Rock/Canned Funk) (5CD set) ... CD
CTI/Sony, Early 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $29.99
A CTI powerhouse – five full albums from reedman Joe Farrell, each packaged in a tiny LP-styled sleeve! First up is Joe Farrell Quartet – a stellar session that's easily one of the early high points for the legendary CTI label! Farrell bursts forth as one heck of a soulful cat – working on these great modal grooves that slide out wonderfully and really have a sense of flow – a style that's different than Joe's later material, but equally powerful! Part of the strength of the record comes from the lineup – a key quintet of like-mined up-and-comers that includes Chick Corea on keyboards, John McLaughlin on guitar, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – players who definitely know the farther reaches of jazz, yet hang just on the inside here with Joe – providing some amazing accompaniment for his lines on soprano, tenor, and flute. Titles include "Molten Glass", "Song Of The Wind", "Motion", "Follow Your Heart", and "Circle In The Square". Next is Outback – a drawn-out quintet side, with Chick Corea on electric piano, Buster Williams on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and Airto on percussion. Farrell was playing with Jones at the time, and the album's got some of their strong choppy reed/percussion interplay – but with a sharpness and focus that you don't always hear on Elvin's records! Tracks are all long – and titles include "Outback", "Sound Down", and "Bleeding Orchid". Penny Arcade has grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – a combo that's got a harder, tighter feel than most CTI groups – a key reason why Joe's records of this time are so legendary! The album features a fantastic version of Stevie Wonder's "Too High" – one that breaks all over the beginning with these riffs by Farrell, then grooves into a CTI electric funk mode for about 13 minutes. All tracks are long – and other tracks include "Hurricane Jane", "Geo Blue", "Penny Arcade", and "Cloud Cream". Upon This Rock is wonderful – and there's a lean, edgey groove to the set that's totally great – a lot more bite than usual for CTI, thanks to these wonderfully angular lines from Joe on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – backed up with some wicked guitar work from Joe Beck, who really matches Farrell's energy – in a core quartet with Herb Bushler on bass and Jim Madison on drums. One cut features a guest group – with Herbie Hancock on piano, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion – and the album includes the massively break-heavy title cut "Upon This Rock", plus "Seven Seas", "I Won't Be Back", and "Weathervane". Last up is Canned Funk – a record that's as fresh and freaky as the classic image on the cover! The riffing rhythms get going right from the start – some amazing lines from a rhythm combo that includes Joe Beck on guitar, Herb Bushler on bass, Jim Madison on drums, and the mighty Ray Mantilla on percussion – adding in these extra changes and fills that really get the tunes moving wonderfully – providing a perfect platform for Joe Farrell's wonderful work on tenor, soprano, baritone, and flute! The sax lines are as angular as the rhythms – tight, choppy, and completely funky – no wonder the record's a CTI classic that folks have dug for years! Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Canned Funk", "Animal", and "Spoken Silence". CD

Beat (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
An incredibly groovy soundtrack – penned for this 1967 film by animator Bruno Bozzetto, the man who created Signor Rossi! As with the music for Rossi, Bozzetto's working here with Franco Godi – who really gets into the spirit of the film by composing some wonderfully groovy tunes that mix together lively jazzy rhythms, scatting wordless vocals, and lots of other odd sounds and effects! The style is totally great – and although the soundtrack has a few mellower moments, there's loads and loads of really groovy numbers on the set – and they're the kind of tunes that have a sound unlike anything else we can think of! Vocals are by the chorus of Nora Orlandi, and titles include "Adamo Jeppamela", "La Crociera", "VIP", "Pesci E Mare", "Minivip Scappa", "Vip E Lotta", "Happy Betty", "Terra E Fuga Minivip", and "L'Auto Del Colonello".

Recorded live at the Montreal Jazz Festival, and a special set featuring the acoustic talents of trumpeter Tim Hagan and soprano saxist Bob Belden, mixed with electronics by Scott Kinsey, and turtablism by DJ Kingsize. Most of the material is fairly out – with off-kilter solos draped over loud junglist rhythms – and the album reminds us more of Derek Bailey's drum n bass album of a few years back, than it does some of the more recent new funky work on Blue Note. Titles include "Big Moment", "Dans La Ville Sombre", "Love's Lullaby", "Are You Threatening Me?", and "Trumpet Sandwich". CD

Atco, 1968. Very Good ... $4.99
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years later! "In A Gadda Da Vida" was shortened to a single – with the big hook intact – but this classic album version runs for 17 minutes in length, and has the group doing all these cool jams with their instruments – all the animals in the garden of Eden talking to each other (or at least that's what our addled teenaged minds always thought!) Shorter tracks are mighty nice too – a heady, heavy brew of Hammond and fierce guitar from Erik Brann, on cuts all penned by group leader Doug Ingle. Titles include "Termination", "My Mirage", "Flowers & Roses", and "Most Anything You Want". LP, Vinyl record album

Overall though, the vibe is the same, defying easy description in that post ambient, contemporary post rock-Nu Jazz netherland, kind of a thinking man's soundtrack to the chill out room. 10 tracks in all, including "Cinematic", "Animal Chin", "Going Down", "Airborne" and "Low Battery".

Redefinition, 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 11.98
A pair of solid instrumentals sets by Klaus Layer, originally issued as separate limited edition vinyl sets – back-to-back on CD! Restless Adventures is rich with heavy, headnodding beats – clearly influenced by classic early 90s hip hop production – but Klausputs a timeless, inventive spin of his own on it. Titles include "Inner Earth Vibe", "Another Season", "Through The Looking Glass", "Our Hearts", "Time Out", "A Day Vision", "Happiness At The Lake", "Kaleidoscope" and "Don't You Care". Abstract, yet classic hip hop-inspired instrumentals from Klaus Layer – a prolific German producer who continues to deliver the goods! For The People Like Us also shows a lot of love for the 90s style, particularly the east coast, without imitating it – with funky beats, sampled vocal loops and murky keyboard atmospherics. Titles include "For The People Like Us", "The Sun Is Up", "Der Traum Von Gestern (Resurgent Branch)", "Animals Garden", "Be As You Are", "Keine Pantomime (No Pantomime)", "I'm No Joke", "Coming To Your World", "Symbol Fur Morgen (Symbol Of Tomorrow)" and more.

John Lewis & Albert Mangelsdorff/Zagreb Jazz QuartAnimal Dance ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the hippest albums that John Lewis ever recorded – and a set that's noteworthy for the presence of two European modernists! Most of the record features Lewis in a wonderful group with trobmonist Albert Mangelsdorff – who gets plenty of space here to play in his stepping, stuttering style – one of the more angular approaches to trombone in the 60s, and a nice contrast to the piano of Lewis. The group shared by both features Karl Theodor Geier on bass and Silvije Glojarnic on drums – and titles include "Animal Dance", "Set Em Up", "Monday In Milan", and "Why Are You Blue". But possibly even better than these sides is the album's one track by the amazing Zagreb Jazz Quartet – a group that features Bosko Petrovic on vibes, in a style that's somewhat inspired by the MJQ, but a fair bit darker too! The group play the wonderful "Ornaments" – awash in blue tones and richly chromatic vibes. LP, Vinyl record album
