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 ... $12.99
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

Bruno NicolaiJustine – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
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

✨✧ Mary Lou WilliamsBlack Christ Of The Andes ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways/Saba, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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

Banana Splits/BeaglesWe're The Banana Splits/Here Come The Beagles ... CD
Hollywood, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Way more than just another kiddie soundtrack – or an album for a childish TV show – as the set's a surprisingly groovy little record, almost Sunshine Pop in its best moments! We're not sure about the nature of the players or the singers – but arranger Jack Eskew put the whole thing together with a bouncy, bubbly groove that rivals the best pop-psych work of the late 60s on labels like Kapp or Uni – right down to the perfect combination of fuzzy guitars and organ in the instrumentation. Titles include "This Spot", "I'm Gonna Find A Cave", "We're The Banana Splits", "In New Orleans", "Toy Piano Medley", "Don't Go Away Go Go Girl", and the classic "Tra La La Song". CD also features bonus Splits songs – "The Very First Kid On My Block", "The Beautiful Calliope", "Let Me Remember You Smiling", and "Soul". The CD also features the album Here Comes The Beagles – from a very Splits-like show that features another group of singing animals! The Beagles aren't The Beatles, but they definitely have a strong Brit Invasion feel in their music – a UK way with a melody that's mixed with a few sunny Cali pop touches too. Very 60s, very groovy, and way better than just a kiddie record – with tunes that include "What More Can I Do", "Be The Captain", "I Wanna Capture You", "Indian Love Dance", and "You Satisfy". CD

Gordon BeckDr Dolittle Loves Jazz ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
As the title implies, the album's a set of jazz tracks based around the score for the film Doctor Doolittle – basically all the nice music written for the movie by Leslie Bricusse, without any of the silly lyrics by Anthony Newley! The group features Gordon Beck on acoustic piano, with backing by Kenny Baldock on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums – and the whole thing swings a lot more than you might expect for a record of such origins – making the set one of Beck's best outings from the time! Titles include "Talk To The Animals", "Doctor Dolittle", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "After Today", "My Friend The Doctor", and "At The Crossroads". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

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 ... $16.99
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

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWinds Of Change (180 gram mono edition) ... LP
MGM/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
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

Lyrical combat from Baltimore duo Dirt Platoon – with gritty production by producer Kyo Itachi! The vocals are raw and uncompromising and Itachi wisely lays down hard-hitting beats and spare bits of piano strings and other fairly delicate textures –which are fine foil for the lyrical grit. Includes "Animal S**t", "Dirty Work" with Ruste Juxx, "Old Time Sake", "Brainstorming", "Point Of Attack" with Dro Pesci, Skanks, Shabaam Sahdeeq and Milez Grimez, "Wage War", "Dose Of Reality", "The Closer" and more.

Georgie Fame & Alan PriceFame & Price/Price & Fame/Together (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Made In Germany (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A great reunion of two grown-up figures from the bluesier side of the British scene of the 60s – vocalist Georgie Fame and ex-Animal Alan Price, both of whom really sound great together! After leaving The Animals, Price worked strongly in the UK as a solo act – often hitting grooves that were similar to Fame's R&B-drenched material, and making him a great counterpart for an album like this. Fame's style is tighter and warmer than Price's – and the numbers that feature both artists singing together have a great sense of interplay – two very unique voices that are extremely comfortable with each other, and encourage a nice sense of personality and presence. Overall, the album's often a bit more bluesy than Fame's usual work – but in a great way that illustrates that he was always up for a new mode of expression. Titles include "John & Mary", "The Dole Song", "Yellow Man", "Rosetta", "I Can't Take It Much Longer", "Blue Condition", "Ballad Of Billy Joe", and "Home Is Where Your Heart Is". CD

Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 2 – Scratch (remastered) ... CD
Real World, 1978. Used ... $6.99
Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". CD

Franco GodiVIP Mio Fratello Superuomo (VIP My Brother Superman) (plus bonus tracks) ... 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

HavenstreetEnd Of The Line/Perspectives ... CD
Sommer (Spain), Mid 70s. Used 2CD ... $2.99
A rare album, with a full bonus album of previously-unreleased material – all from the obscure British group Havenstreet – an underground folksy combo who maybe showed up a few years too late on the scene! While most of England in 1977 was bristling with the new energy of punk, these guys made sounds that hearkened back to the best years of the acid folk scene – with all the dark elements, odd anachronistic styles, and unusual phrasing on acoustic instruments that were floating around at the start of the decade. But there's also a forward-thinking sound here, too – one that might make these guys years ahead of their time, instead of behind – really showcasing the way that later waves of indie acts would refine and improve older folksy modes. The strength of the set is surprising – and the package features their rare album The End Of The Line, plus the bonus Perspectives collection of material from the late 70s. Titles include "When The Madcap Meets The World", "Rain", "The Castle", "The Photograph", "After Time", "Suspended Animation", "Grasshopper", "Damascus", "Village Vespers", "The Ballroom Of Despair", and "Family Laughter".
