Sun RaLost Arkestra Series Vol 1 & 2 (10 inch LPs) ... LP
Kindred Spirits/Art Yard (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 x 10 inch ... $22.99
A limited repress of two rare sets of material from Sun Ra and The Arkestra – served up here on very cool 10" vinyl! Record one begins with this wonderful spiritual number, "Along Came Ra" – performed live with some great lead vocals from June Tyson to start things out – then given a cool recitation by Ra in the middle, over ensemble vocals and loads of great percussion! Next is "The Sky Is A Sea Of Darkness" – a spare keyboard tune that mixes up a "Space Is The Place" organ riff with some great vocals (from Ra?) – beautifully, soulfully sung with a poetic feel that's wonderful! Last up is one of the most soulful versions of "We Travel The Spaceways" we've ever heard – slow, with piano in the background underneath the vocals – which themselves are deeply personal, and some of the most moving we've ever heard on a Ra tune. All three tracks are on the inside, spiritual side of the Arkestra spectrum – and all mighty nice! Records 2 brings forth three rare tracks from the Cosmo Earth Fantasy project! First up is the beautiful "World Of Africa" – a tune that's partly chanted vocals over percussion, partly skittish guitar that dips and turns all over the groove – in a really exotic, hypnotic sort of way! "Love Is Always" is this sublime ballad – with Ra playing echoey piano lines over slow percussion, which then opens up to a soulful tenor solo that's incredible – the Arkestra at their spiritual best! "Space Is The Place" completes the record – but done here in a very offbeat, upbeat version that features lots of chanting and changing up the groove – much more live and spontaneous than any other take we've heard of the tune – almost as if they're forming the track out of spoken ideas between members of the Arkestra!

Sun Ra & His Solar ArkestraI Roam The Cosmos (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Art Yard (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $26.99
Fantastic material from Sun Ra – a never-heard 1972 performance at Slugs, and one that captures the group at their most spiritual point! The core of the set is the track "I Roam The Cosmos" – one of the more obscure Ra compositions, and a title that appears here for the first time on any record – folded together with bits of "Astro Black" and "Discipline 27 II" – in a wonderfully extended single musical performance – stretching for 51 minutes long, and filled with righteous vocal moments alongside some great solos too! The groove is great – kind of a slow dipping and turning rhythm – showcasing recitations by June Tyson and Sun Ra – with lots of room for soulful work from Marshall Allen on flute and alto, Danny Davis on alto, John Gilmore on tenor, Kwame Hadi and Akh Tal Ebah on trumpets, and Danny Ray Thompson on baritone – plus lots of drums and percussion. Really beautiful stuff – as deeply spiritual as the best of the Impulse Records artists, circa 1972 – and appearing here for the first time ever! LP, Vinyl record album

Salah Ragab & The Cairo Jazz BandSalah Ragab & The Cairo Jazz Band Present Egyptian Jazz – Ramadan In Space Time ... LP
Art Yard/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Amazing grooves like you've never heard before – the seminal sides by Salah Ragab and his Cairo Jazz Band! As you can probably guess from their name, the ensemble was an Egyptian one – working at the end of the 60s in an incredible blend of jazz and more traditional Egyptian-styled sounds – a blend that comes across with all the exotic feel of the pyramids at dawn, but which manages to groove like some of the best funky work from America at the time! Instrumentation includes lot of percussion, heavy piano and horns, and some especially great flute on most tracks – all coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we've heard before. This collection is the first time that this music has been brought together officially, all with the kind of top-shelf production and packaging we've come to expect from the Art Yard label! LP version includes the tracks "Egypt Strut", "Ramadan In Space Time", "Dawn", "Neveen", "Oriental Mood", "Kleopatra", and "Mervat". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaSleeping Beauty ... LP
Saturn/Art Yard (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most soulful Sun Ra albums ever – very much on the Lanquidity tip, and done with a great mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation! The vibe here is really mellow, spiritual, and warm – and the album actually feels a lot more like a session recorded for the Strata East label than it does for Saturn! Keyboards pervade the session – electric piano and organ drifting around in moody, laidback lines – augmented by occasional vibes, bits of guitar, and some wonderfully well-blown sax solo work by Marshall Allen and John Gilmore! The title track "Sleeping Beauty" runs for all of side two of the album – and it's an amazing little number that mixes instrumental passages with some great mellow Roy Ayers-styled vocals. "Door Of The Cosmos" is a bit of a groover, and even gets a bit funky at times – and the album also features the laidback spacey number "Springtime Again". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pat PatrickSound Advice ... LP
Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums ever issued by Sun Ra's Saturn Records label – and one of the few dates to ever feature baritone saxophonist Pat Patrick as a leader – Sun Ra's longtime partner in the Arkestra, and a hell of a player on his own! The record is a heavy baritone date – with Rene McLean, Charles Davis, James Ware, Reynold Scott, and George Barrow joining Patrick on the lead instrument, plus a bit of flute – blowing at a level that makes the whole thing feel like one of the best creative ensemble projects on Strata East from the period – very jazzy, but also reaching for lots of new ideas too! The music is a lot more soulful than Ra's usual work – less outside overall, but in a good way – and the group also features a young Hilton Ruiz on piano, plus Jon Hart on bass, Steve Solder on drums, and Babafemi Humphreys on congas. Titles include "Funny Time", "Uptighttedness", "Eastern Vibrations", "Sabia", and "The Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Al ChemWeird Fiction (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Art Yard (UK), Early 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's lots of weird tones and textures taking place here – a mix of organic elements with an electronic vibe – all in a way that maybe puts the music somewhere in the territory of some of the 4th World Possible Musics projects from EG Records years ago! Electronics bubble along with a rhythmic vibe – and often feel as if they're constructed from an acoustic core – at a level that seems to reference more of a pan-global culture, even though the approach is decidedly 21st Century and European. The leadoff track has lyrics from Ras Michael, but all the rest are instrumentals, with a strong sound collage vibe – and titles include "No Hopper", "Prophet", "The Red Tower", "Baudelaire", and "Ladder Of Perfection".

✨✧ Modern Jazz Quartet with Sonny RollinsModern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn – Guest Artist Sonny Rollins ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
The Modern Jazz Quartet with a very noteworthy addition – the great Sonny Rollins, whose work on this record really makes it a cut above the usual MJQ outing for Atlantic! As on the quartet's previous Music Inn album with Jimmy Giuffre, the addition of a reed player really inflects their trademark sound with a new range of sounds and feelings – and Rollins himself cuts back on the hardbop influences, and shows some great restraint in matching some of the group's more modern modes. Sonny only plays on 2 of the album's 6 tracks – but that's enough to open it up nicely – and on other numbers, the MJQ begin in their usual mellower mode, but then seem to step things up with more boppish inflections, almost anticipating Rollins' arrival on the last 2 numbers. Sonny plays on the tunes "Bag's Groove" and "Night In Tunisia" – and other titles include "Midsommer", "Festival Sketch", "Yardbird Suite", and an opening medley. LP, Vinyl record album

Dolphy and Carter play on both records, and they're joined by players like Jaki Byard, Roy Haynes, Booker Little, and Mal Waldron. Classic genius Dolphy material, with the tracks "Rally", "Miss Ann", "Far Cry", "Saucer Eyes", and a great version of "Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & Dodo MarmarosaJug & Dodo ... LP
Prestige, 1962/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
The first-ever issue of material recorded in Chicago in 1962 – a rare session by pianist Dodo Marmarosa, one that was to be his last on earth! Dodo's working with a trio that includes Sam Jones on bass and Marshall Thompson on drums – in a sad, almost bluesy style that's a wonderful maturation of ideas he was expressing during his bop years, and which is similar to his last album on Argo. Ammons joins in on tenor sax for about half the tracks on the session, and the material is presented here with a good set of liner notes that opens up a good bit of history on Dodo. Titles include "Just Friends", "Georgia", "For You", "The Moody Blues", "Yardbird Suite", "Bluzarumba", and "The Very Thought Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

Don EllisNew Ideas ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Compelling early work from trumpeter Don Ellis – and a set that's almost equally great for the presence of Jaki Byard on piano! The work's quite different than some of Ellis' other material – a bit more sharp and stark, and played by a group that includes Byard on piano, Al Francis on vibes, Ron Carter on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums. Byard's especially nice – playing in a range of styles, and with all of the quick thinking and imagination that he displays on recordings with Roland Kirk and others. There's a lot of nice moments on the record, especially when Byard and Francis trade off piano and vibe lines back and forth – and titles include "Natural H", "Imitation", "Solo", and "Despair To Hope".

Dexter Gordon, Red Rodney, Von Freeman, et alCharlie Parker Memorial Concert ... LP
Cadet, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
In Chicago, the cult of Bird fanatics probably lived harder than in other cities – and in the few decades after Charlie Parker's death, the city was host to annual Bird Memorial concerts during the month of August. This obscure 2LP set on Cadet does a good job of documenting the energy and comraderie that went into those sessions – as it captures tunes from four different performances during the series, all recorded at Chicago's North Park Hotel. Players include Dexter Gordon, Howard McGhee, Vi Redd, Lee Konitz, Art Hoyle, Von Freeman, Jodie Christian, Roy Haynes, Muhal Richard Abrams, Eddie Jefferson, and Kenny Dorham – and the set's a great crossection of players – from the bop to the less obvious Parker-philes – in a strong illustration of Bird's still-consistent influence even at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Ornithology", "Yardbird Suite", "Disappointed", "Parker's Mood", "Now's The Time", and "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album

Billie HolidayBillie Holiday – The Golden Years 1933-1941 (3LP box set) ... LP

An excellent collection of Billie's 30s work for Columbia Records – featuring 3LPs worth of material, represented with much better sound than the original 78 rpm release of the songs. Billie's in the company of a host of great jazzmen – including Count Basie, Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Shavers, Artie Shaw, Cozy Cole, Roy Eldridge, Red Allen, and countless others. 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "Your Mother's Son In Law", "Riffin The Scotch", "Them There Eyes", "Without Your Love", "Swing Brother Swing", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "You Go To My Head", "Long Gone Blues", "I Can't Get Started", "All Of Me", "God Bless The Child", and "Gloomy Sunday".

✨✧ Bobby JonesLegacy Of Bobby Jones (aka Arrival Of Bobby Jones) ... LP
Muse, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An excellent debut from saxophonist Bobby Jones – an extremely talented player whose work was a big part of the Charles Mingus group in the early 70s – and an artist who works with a surprising sense of soul! The album's got Bobby in a really great lineup – with sensitive backing from Charles McPherson on alto sax, Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – and 2 tracks feature some added whimsicality from Bob Dorough, who plays electric piano, and Sue Evans, who plays an assortment of percussion. Bob plays on the groovy tunes "Stone Bossa" and "Keepin Up With The Joneses" – and other tracks include "Thanks To Trane", "Ballad For Two Sons", "As The Crow Flies", and "Blues For The Brown Buddha".

✨✧ Galt MacDermotCotton Comes To Harlem ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A funky classic from Galt MacDermot! The record is Galt's score for the blacksploitation film that starred Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St Jacques – and it's a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes that takes off from the sound of his late 60s work. Melba Moore sings on a few cuts – and others have lyrics sung by George Tipton, Sakinah, Leta Galloway, and Denise Dillpena, mostly in a early 70s pop soul sort of mode. The instrumentals are actually the best bits, though – with those odd little rhythms that Galt could hit when he really wanted to! Titles include "Man In Distress", "Harlem Medley", "Black Enough", "Stockyard", "Deke", "Ed & Digger", "Coffin Ed & Gravedigger", and "Harlem By Day". LP, Vinyl record album

New York Trouble/Electric ProgressionUnreleased Recordings From The KPM Vaults (180 gram pressing) ... LP
KPM/Tummy Touch (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Funky library music from the KPM vaults – one side of raw, hard-driving action soundtrack-ready funk credited to New York Trouble – and one side of proggier and spacier funk credited to Electric Progression! The New York Trouble side has gritty feel – but it's not without its lighter touches – so along with the heavy drums, punchy horns, thick bass lines and fuzz-tone guitars are bits of vibes, xylophone, flute and piano – but it hits pretty hard for the most part! The Electric Progression side is spacier, but it's in the same universe. Moogs, synths and sound effects coming into the mix. It's still got a raw funk base, though! Titles on the New York Trouble side include "Barnyard Bam Bam", "Heavy Stakeout", "Where'd He Go?", "Light Stakeout", "Hustle Don't Hate", "Cool, Not Cold", "There's Your Man", "High Five Shakedown" and more. The Electric Progression side includes "Hong Kong Hang", "Non Sequensor", "Zen Furious", "Sonic Swarm", "Bionic Bassa", "Manhattan Moonrise", "Electric Procession" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Daptone, 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $19.99 23.99
Incredible funk from The Poets Of Rhythm – one of the hardest and heaviest groups in the deep funk underground – and one of the first, too – given that most of the work here pre-dates efforts by all the rest of the Daptone and Soul Fire generation! Long before there was even a Desco Records, these guys started out making sounds based on the funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – perfect funk tracks, from performance to production – without any of the slicker or schlocky modes that their few contemporaries would always step into. Instead, these guys were so sharp that they were able to actually pass off a lot of their early cuts as "vintage" singles – fooling folks into thinking they'd discovered some lost rare funk act, then winning them over even more when they found out that the group was current – and that they had this really unique, magical approach. Drums are super-hard, vocals are nice and raw, and the instrumentation is so sharply funky, you might accidentally cut your fingertips when flipping the record over! This sweet collection brings together 18 singles by the group, plus a previously unissued cut too – all with some great notes as well. Titles include "50 Yards Of Soul", "Funky Train", "South Carolina", "Augusta, GA", "More Mess On My Thing", "Choking On A Piece Of Meat (part 2)", "Ham Gallery", "Summerdays", "Path Of Life", and "Discern/Define".

Strut (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $32.99 34.99
A whole new side of the talents of Sun Ra – especially if you only know the longer-style jams on some of his albums from the 60s and 70s! From the very start of his career, Ra was every bit as interested in issuing music on 45s as he was on albums – and in fact, at some of the more desperate times, the 7" single turned out to be a very affordable format to try out new ideas – including some great projects with other artists! The array of work presented here is stunning – as the set includes some very up-close and personal moments with Ra on record, plus some tight jazzy tracks from the Arkestra, surprising vocal group material designed to crack the R&B market, and some especially cool projects with other singers too. The package is put together with very detailed notes on all the singles – and while the bulk of this material comes from the key Arkestra years of the late 50s through the early 80s, there's also a few tracks from other dates too – including a handful of songs that were only issued as 45s in later years. Vinyl Part 1 is a 3LP set that focuses on the earliest years – with a total of 35 tracks in all – and titles include "Chicago USA" by The Nu Sounds, "I'm Coming Home" by Billie Hawkins, "Softalk" by Sun Ra, "Demon's Lullaby" by Le Sun Ra, "It's Christmas Time" by The Qualities, "M Uck M Uck (Matt Matt)" by Yochanan, "Bye Bye" by The Cosmic Rays, "October" by Sun Ra, "Adventur In Space" by Sun Ra, "Back In Your Own Backyard" by Hattie Randolph, "The Sun One" by Yochanan, "Dreaming" by The Cosmic Rays, "The Sun Man Speaks" by Yochanan, "Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie" by The Cosmic Rays, "Last Call For Love" by Billie Hawkins, and "Super Blonde" by Sun Ra.

Haunting solo piano work from Pat Thomas – an artist who doesn't seem to just play the keys, but the overall instrument as well – yet all without ever resorting to any sort of sonic tricks or gimmicks! Pat's got this amazing command of the keyboard – able to make the whole instrument resonate with his power on the keys, and also maybe making the room itself move as well – while still also holding to a tonal core and overall musical sensibility – free, but never without a sense of direction. There's moments here that almost feel like Cecil Taylor folded into Jaki Byard – and others that recall a Schlippenbach-like genius – all artists who we'd gladly place Pat Thomas next to, based on the strength of this performance. Titles include "Lubb", "Done", "Elephant", and "For Al Haytham". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLet's Do The Boogaloo ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 22.99
A set that really gets at the full spectrum of the boogaloo groove – not just the Spanish Harlem sounds of the Latin Soul generation – but also the deeper roots of the style from across the USA! "Boogaloo" is a term that most folks use to refer to that New York uptown fusion of Latin rhythms and soulful vocals – and while the NYC styles were key to its fame, the music also burst forth from lots of points west, too – and came together in a flurry of fast rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, and hard-driving vocals that made for a completely infectious blend! This package is a fantastic testament to that mad musical moment – and is overflowing with a selection of gems that goes way past the obvious – not the Fania Records catalog that usually shows up on other boogaloo releases, but a huge batch of tracks from small labels and indie singles too. Titles include "Skate Boogaloo & Karate Too" by Lee Harris, "Block Party" by Jimmy Castor, "Boogaloo #3" by Roy Lee Johnson, "Do The Boo-Ga-Loo (part 1)" by Tom & Jerroo, "Playing It Cool" by Hector Rivera, "Ready Steady Go" by Prince & Princess, "Bar Kays Boogaloo" by The Bar-Kays, "What I Feel" by Richie & The PS 54 School Yard, "Have Some Boogaloo" by Timmy Thomas, "Bugalu" by Charlie Palmieri, "Boogaloo (part 1)" by The Bob & Earl Band, "Me & You Doing The Boogaloo" by Lou Courtney, "Boogaloo Zoo" by Shirley Butler, "Bugaloo Party" by Harold & Connie, "Boogaloo Investigator" by The Exotics, "Funky Funky Boogalo" by Jimmy Brown, and "Let's Do The Funky Boogaloo (part 1)" by Barry Jones.

Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic full length set from trumpeter Jukka Eskola and his Soul Trio – a combo with a strange sort of name! The group here is actually a sextet – as the core combo gets guest help from Timo Lassy on saxes, Magnus Lindgren on flute, and Ville Herrala on bass – who really expand the trio's wonderful groove – a mode that's partly soul jazz, but with very rich flavors of its own – hardly any sort of easy copycat of old American modes! Teppo Makynen – aka Teddy Rok – plays drums, alongside Mikko Helava on organ – and while the album shows all the respect for soulful jazz traditions that we've heard in previous music from Rok, Eskola, and Lassy – the sound is also very different, fresh, and quite original! Titles include "Hong Thong", "Railyard Boogie", "Subterranean Variations", "For Anne Lee", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Introducing The Trio", "Soft Drop", and "Jumpin Punkins". LP, Vinyl record album

A great later example of the genius of Mingus with Eric Dolphy – a performance done shortly before Dolphy left on his tragic last visit to Europe in 1964, and which features both him and Mingus at their freest together! Don't mistake the album for the similarly-titled Town Hall album on United Artists, because this session's a lot more open-ended – with longer tracks, and a real focus on freely creative solos from players that include Dolphy, Clifford Jordan, Johnny Coles, and Jaki Byard.

We're huge fans of the series Insecure – and over and above the performance and vision of the show by Issa Rae, we're also big fans of the music – which features a great array of contemporary artists working on the forefront of soul music – really taking things far in a range of 21st Century modes! This album features a few tracks with Issa delivering some of her trademark freestyle breakout rhymes – but most of the package is comprised of songs that feature in scenes from the show – music that also makes for a great introduction to the new world of underground soul. Rae performs "Go Low", "Cheater For One", "Ho For It", "Rejected", and "Bloct" – and other tracks include "Supermodel" by SZA, "Insecure" by Jazmine Sullivan & Bryston Tiller, "Crew" by Goldlink with Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy, "A Lite" by Buddy, "Real Bitch Problems" by TT The Artist, "Lowkey" by Kari Faux, "Poppin" by Rico Nasty, "The Juice" by Hero, "Hit The Ceiling" by Lion Babe, "Feels Like" by NAO, "Fine Lines" by Jorja Smith, "Morning Blues" by Smiles Davis with Bosco and Tola, and "Gucci Ice Cream" by Girls In The Yard.

The solos are pretty free and gosh darn creative – and titles on this volume include "Summertime", "All Day Long", and "Yardbird Suite". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest modern moments on Blue Note – ever! From the cover, to the compositions, to the playing on the set – the whole album crackles with an unbelievable fire that was hardly ever matched again. A young Sam Rivers leads a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Anthony Williams on drums – coming together in a sound that's got lots of sharp edges, yet which also beats with an undeniably swinging heart. Rivers blows incredibly on the session – held in check by the rhythm section, and never getting too free (or sloppy, as on some later sides) – and instead hitting these hard tones that really push the envelope of 60s jazz without rewriting the rules entirely. Brilliant all the way through, with tracks that include "Beatrice", "Ellipsis", "Cyclic Episode", and "Downstairs Blues Upstairs". LP, Vinyl record album
