✨✧ Alessandroni/Tommasi/Atmo/Tamponi/BraenBiologia Marina ... LP
Rhombus/Intervallo (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A totally wonderful sound library album – and one that really lives up to the marine biology promise of its title! The set's got a really watery feel all the way through – a blend of electronics and acoustic elements that's not unlike Sven Libaek's wonderful soundtrack material for Inner Space – but even more offbeat and trippy overall – with cool analogue keyboard passages that have a very offbeat sound, and which are produced with a nice degree of echo at times too! Tracks are by a number of key Italian soundtrack composers – including Bruno Tommasi and Alessandro Alessandroni – and titles include "Acque Tranquille", "Bollicine", "Acquario", "Stelle Marine", "Profondita", "Subsuspense", and "Atlantic".

Mose AllisonAutumn Song ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Mose Allison's last album for Prestige Records – before moving onto even bigger fame at Columbia and Atlantic during the 60s! Unlike Allison's later sets, this one is mostly instrumental – but there are a few sweet vocal tracks that bring out the hip, rootsy lyrical modes that would make Mose a big hit with the mod scene overseas – including the classic "Eyesight To The Blind", plus "That's All Right" and "Do Nothing Till You Here From Me". The remaining piano trio sides have a great rollicking groove – rootsy, yet slightly modern too – with bass by Addison Farmer and drums from Ronnie Free – on titles that include "Promenade", "It's Crazy", "Strange", "Autumn Song", and "Groovin High". LP, Vinyl record album

Keren AnnYou're Gonna Get Love (deluxe edition) ... CD
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime! Keren's also making a big step towards a global market here, too – continuing her trend of singing in English, which is the case throughout the album – which really helps get her captivating tunes and amazing sound to a larger market on this side of the Atlantic – all without losing the breathy charm of her previous French language vocals. The tunes have this moody vibe, almost in a hip early 70s singer/songwriter mode – and backing instrumentation that really follows suit. Titles include "Again & Again", "you Knew Me Then", "Bring Back", "The Separated Twin", "You Have It All To Lose", and "The River That Swallows All The Rivers". CD

Arnaldo Antunes, Edgard Scandura & Toumani DiabateA Curva Da Cintura (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Rosa Celeste (Brazil), 2011. Used ... $18.99
One of the coolest records in years from the always-creative Arnaldo Antunes – a trio effort that has him working with Toumani Diabate and Edgard Scandurra – in a pan-Atlantic set of sounds that's really amazing! Antunes' creative approach to songwriting is very much in place – but it's also inflected by an earthier element than before, given the presence of the two other artists – kora and percussion from Diabate, and some great acoustic guitar from Scandurra – both of which really warm up the tunes, and help unlock a whole new side of Arnaldo's vocals! The album was recorded both in Mali and Brazil – with results that definitely show that blend – and titles include "A Curva Da Cintura", "Cara", "Um Senhor", "Psiu", "Ce Sabe Como E", "Ir Mao", "Kaira", and "Grao De Chaos". Also features some great bonus tracks too – written by Diabate and Scandurra. Not even the MTV logo on the front can take away our enthusiasm for the record! CD

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing with deep groove.)

Atomic/School DaysNuclear Assembly Hall ... CD
Okka Disk, 2004. Used 2CD ... $11.99
They got the title right on this incendiary release, yet another transatlantic love affair between a nice patch of forward thinking Nordic improvisers and some of our own homegrown talent. The School Days quartet is a group that grew out of connections built up through the extended Vandermark/Gustafson relationship, with two of the leading lights of Chicago new school – Vandermark and Jeb Bishop – in the front line teaming up with a European rhyhtm section – Haker Flaten and Nilssen-Love – and taking inspiration from the landmark Lacy/Rudd recordings they derived their name from. As it happens, the rhythm section are from the group Atomic, with whom you may be familiar from their excellent Jazzland recordings, combining the best of the free avant scene with a strong rhythmic underpinning. This set of all original material bristles with energy, as the playing bounces between Ornette-ish phrasing, tightly arranged passages and textural improv. 9 numbers in all, spread out over 2 CDs, including "W Meets A", "Transparent taylor", "Ink Worm", "Kerosene", "Conjugations" and "Dog Days".

AzymuthLight As A Feather (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Milestone/Far Out (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of Azymuth's best-remembered albums from their American years on Milestone – a really killer classic that beautifully blends Brazilian and American styles of fusion! There's a simple, elegant feel to these tunes that takes off nicely from the group's previous album for Atlantic in Brazil – a pushing forward of the soulful sides of their style, but with just the right blend of quirkier elements as well – one that still keeps the edge of the early years, yet helps the group reach out with a wonderfully warm sound! Most tracks are quite spare, and without any too-smooth polishing in production – and titles include the classic "Jazz Carnival", a funky fusion classic if there ever was one – plus "Light As A Feather", "Avenida Das Manguerias", "This Exists", "Partido Alto", "Dona Olimpia", "Amazonia", and "Young Embrace". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited repress of 300 copies. Remixed and remastered version – with better sound than ever!)

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient ... LP
Saravah (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $34.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was a bit straighter – although still pretty hip – and this time around, he's bringing in a wide range of elements – Brazilian bits, folksy touches, and more – all served up with an approach that's as uniquely personal as work by other Saravah artists, like Brigitte Fontaine or Areski! Barouh's a brilliant writer and singer, and his work is a lost link in a tradition that spans Caetano Veloso, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, and others – crucially overlooked on this side of the Atlantic, and extremely important to us over the years. Titles include "De L'Amour A L'Amour", "Le Courage D'Aimer", "80 AB", "La Foret", "Le Petit Cheval De Bois", "Le Petit Cine", and "Paris Wellington". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing – non-gatefold, but with obi.)

Basso Valdambrini SextetSestetto Basso Valdambrini – The Best Modern Jazz In Italy 1962 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1962. Used ... $8.99
A really landmark album in European jazz – one of those records that always tops the lists of collectors, and for good reason too! The sextet of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the greatest things going in jazz on that side of the Atlantic in the early 60s – a fresh, modern group who could still play with plenty of soul – avoiding some of the cool jazz traps of other European combos, and really hitting hard with solo work that matched the best American work of the time. The sound here is really incredible – tunes that bristle with electricity from the very first note, played with a cohesiveness that makes the record far more than just a happy accident in the studio! Titles include the originals "Coltrane Style" and "Monotonia", plus versions of Jackie McLean's "Dr Jackle", Junior Mance's "Jubilation", and Benny Golson's "Are You Real". CD

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

Big MaybelleI've Got A Feelin' – Okeh & Savoy Recordings 1952 to 1956 ... CD
Okeh/Rev-Ola (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $3.99
A great overview of the important early years of Big Maybelle – work that's probably still some of her best-remembered, all done in a gutsy, soulful style that's every bit as wonderful as 50s R&B on Atlantic from Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker! The package brings together both Maybelle's work for Savoy and Okeh – and in doing so, covers all of her key sides of the mid 50s – some of which are oft-remembered hits, others of which are lesser-known, but even better – in that slightly off-center way that can make obscure R&B still sound great after the passage of many years. CD features 28 titles in all – including the classics "Gabbin Blues" and "Candy" – plus "Ain't No Use", "I'm Getting Long Alright", "You Never Know", "Maybelle's Blues", "Such A Cutie", "So Good To My Baby", "That's A Pretty Good Love", "Ring Dang Dilly", "Pitiful", and "I Don't Want To Cry".

Rene BlochLatin Discotheque ... LP
Clarion, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
One of the excellent overlooked Latin albums recorded by Atlantic during the 60's – most of which were never issued again. Rene Bloch leads a nice little orchestra through a lively set of mambos and Latin jazz tracks, with a set that's mostly instrumental, and which has a different sound, due to the inclusion of a prominent electric guitar on many tracks. Cuts include "Mambo Watusi", "Sera Charanga?", "Mr. Latin's Mambo", and "Lamento Latino". Nice stuff, and a record that we don't see much! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has sticker remnants on front and very light surface wear.)

Solomon BurkeProud Mary ... LP
Bell, 1969. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Solomon Burke may be most famously known for his early recordings for Atlantic Records – but he still sounds pretty darn great on this set, recorded at Fame Studios in 1969, and with a rootsier feel than before! Solomon himself handled the arrangements, and co-produced with Tamiko Jones – and the instrumentation is quite lean and very stripped-down – drums from Roger Hawkins, guitar from Jimmy Johnson and Eddie Hinton, and keyboards from Barry Beckett – all burning down at the bottom range of the Muscle Shoals spectrum! Titles include a surprisingly great remake of "Proud Mary", plus "These Arms Of Mine", "I Can't Stop", "What Am I Living For", "Uptight Good Woman", "Don't Wait Too Long", and Solomon's own "How Big A Fool (Can a Fool Be)". LP, Vinyl record album

Solomon BurkeProud Mary – The Bell Sessions ... CD
Bell/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Solomon's most famously known for his Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but immediately after working for that label, when his soul vibe was still quite strong, Solomon cut some great little sides for the Bell label in Muscle Shoals. The approach used was actually a bit rootsier than that on some of Solomon's Atlantic sides, and production on most of the cuts is by Solomon and Tamiko Jones. This CD brings together cuts from Solomon's one LP on Bell, plus 6 bonus cuts that feature him singing some pretty interesting material – done in that style he used in late Atlantic years that made even suspicious cuts sound pretty darn nice! Much of the material is cover versions of tracks – but apart from the hard-to-hear "Proud Mary" (a track that always seems a bit tired from the perspective of this generation), there's lots of nice numbers that bring out this style, like "In The Ghetto", "Change Is Gonna Come", "Uptight Good Woman", "What Am I Living For", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "These Arms Of Mine", "Don't Wait Too Long", and "That Lucky Old Sun". 17 tracks in all.

Clarence CarterFame Singles Vol 2 – 1970 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Sublime sounds from Clarence Carter – wonderful work from his second wave of singles for Fame Records – a wealth of great music from a time when Carter was really coming into his own! Clarence was great right from the start, but here you can really hear him finding his own voice – that all-knowing, storytelling approach that could make even a simple lyric spin out in a way that was totally captivating – with a quality that set Carter apart from some of his more tear-jerked southern soul contemporaries, into a space of class and confidence that would serve him well for years to come! Every number here was recorded at the Fame Studios, with the kind of killer backings you'd expect from the Muscle Shoals team – and although the singles were initially issues over a few different labels (Fame, Atlantic, and United Artists) – they're brought together here in complete order, for a massive 22 track set. Tracks include "I'm The One", "I Hate To Love & Run", "Slipped Tripped & Fell In Love", "Say It One More Time", "It's All In Your Mind", "Sixty Minute Man", "Heartbreak Woman", "Love's Trying To Come To You", "I Found Somebody New", and "Put On Your Shoes & Walk" – plus "If You Can't Beat Em", which is a duet with Candi Staton!

Ray CharlesLive In Concert ... LP
ABC, 1964. Very Good ... $4.99
A classic live set from Ray Charles – one that equally showcases all the best sides of his sound in the mid 60s! The group's got a nice dose of jazz – which it shows right at the start – almost a mix of Basie swing and R&B, of the sort that Ray was sporting heavily in the late Atlantic years, but didn't always get to display in the countrified early years on ABC – and players include David Fathead Newman on tenor, Hank Crawford on alto, and Julian Priester on trombone – all horn players who really help the whole thing swing! Ray plays some great piano alongside his vocals – and tunes include rollicking versions of "I Got A Woman", "You Don't Know Me", "Makin' Whoopee", "Hallelujah I Love Her So", and "What'd I Say". LP, Vinyl record album

CoastersCoasters Greatest Hits (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atco (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A classic full length set from The Coasters – and as much of a full album that brings together their best for Atlantic, as it is a collection of earlier material from singles! There's a really unified approach here – thanks to the group's really dynamic, surprisingly soulful vocal interplay – and to the top-shelf production and presentation of the material throughout. And sure, they were hitmakers – but we love these guys, and find them to be one of the most radical vocal groups of all time! Under the impeccable guidance of Lieber & Stoller, the group recorded some of the fiercest vocal numbers of the 50s – mixing incredibly soulful vocals with an almost cartoonish ability to conjure up little pictures with words. A dozen great numbers in all – "Poison Ivy", "Along Came Jones", "Down In Mexico", "The Shadow Knows", "I'm A Hog For You", "Charlie Brown", "Yakety Yak", "Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart", "That Is Rock & Roll", "Young Blood", "Sweet Georgia Brown", and "Searchin'". CD adds in four more bonus tracks too! CD

Billy CobhamAyajala Live ... CD
Hi Hat, 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet late 70s live set from drummer Billy Cobham – recorded live in Chicago, and done with a groove that's right up there with his best Atlantic Records albums from the mid 70s! Billy's on fire throughout, but is also much more in his funky style than his rockish mode – working here with a great lineup that includes deft keyboards from Mark Soskin, guitars from Ray Mouton and Charles Singleton – who also plays a bit of reeds as well. Randy Jackson provides some mighty heavy bass, and Alvin Batiste adds some surprisingly nice clarinet lines to the mix – on titles that include "On A Magic Carpet Ride", "AC/DC", and "Ayajala", and a "Drum Solo" too!

Ornette ColemanFriends and Neighbors – Ornette Live At Prince Street ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BMG (France), 1970. Used ... $8.99
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Ornette Coleman – and a set that's very different than some of his other work for different labels – particularly his better-known material for Blue Note and Atlantic! The album's got a righteous feel that's right up there in the best spirit of the Flying Dutchman label of the early 70s – a mode that's still on the far reaches of avant jazz that Ornette explored on earlier sessions – but which also has a warmer, almost more spiritual quality at times too. The core group features legendary partners Charlie Haden on bass, Dewey Redman on tenor, and Ed Blackwell on drums – but part of the record features an unnamed group of "Friends & Neighbors", who join in on the title cut with this collaborative spirit that really sets the tone for the whole record. Coleman plays trumpet and violin in addition to his usual alto sax – and titles include the mindblowing two part "Friends & Neighbors", plus "Let's Play", "Long Time No See", "Forgotten Songs", and "Tomorrow". CD
