✨✧ Jimmy KnepperIdol Of The Flies (aka Swinging Introduction To Jimmy Knepper) (Affinity) ... LP
Bethlehem/Affinity (UK), 1957. Sealed ... $9.99
Great work from one of the most compelling trombonists of the 50s! Jimmy Knepper is probably best known for his excellent work on some of Charles Mingus' best records – but this set from 1957 shows that Knepper was also an extremely capable (if under-recorded) leader in his own right! The album is one of the rarest Bethlehem sides – and it features Knepper leading a crack group that includes Bill Evans, Gene Quill and drummer Dannie Richmond, making a rare non-Mingus appearance here! The tracks are shortish, and a number of them are standards, but the group swings nicely, and Knepper's tone is nice and edgey on most tracks. Titles include "Avid Admirer", "Close As Pages In A Book", "Ogling Ogre", "Irresistable You", "How High The Moon", "Love Letters" and "Idol Of The Flies". LP, Vinyl record album

David AkeBridges ... CD
Posi tone, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A really well-titled little record – as the sound here is quite unique, and often has the musicians creating these little bridges between each other's space! David Ake wrote all the tunes, and put them together with this angular, blocky sort of feel – lots of sound shapes at the core, which are then whipped into more rhythmic passages by the group – and bridged by some creative work on the front end – a horn section that includes Ralph Alessi on trumpet, Ravi Coltrane on tenor, and Peter Epstein on alto! The rhythm pulsates in ways that provide just the right landscape for the whole thing to hold together – thanks to work from Scott Colley on bass and Mark Ferber on drums – and titles include "Sonomads", "Story Table", "We Do", "Year In Review", and "Open/Balance".

David AkeLake Effect ... CD
Posi tone, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
The lake effect here is a powerful one – a way of building up songs in these blocks of sound that relies heavily on the piano of David Ake, but also draws a lot from the well-crafted saxophone lines of Peter Epstein! Ake's approach is somewhat in the more contemporary school of jazz piano – that way of moving boldly with very carefully-chosen chords – but his work also has a darkness that's very unique, and a balanced sense of pacing that really makes the work of Epstein even more powerful than it might be in a more freewheeling setting. The group's completed by equally-thoughtful work on bass by Sam Minaie and drums by Mark Ferber – and titles include "Lone Pine", "The Cubs", "Tricycle", "Two Stones", "Silver Thaw", and "Palhaco".

Rance Allen GroupSoulful Experience ... LP
Truth/Stax, 1975. Very Good- ... $14.99
A beautiful mix of gospel soul and heavy Memphis production – and the kind of heavy soul album that made Rance Allen one of Stax's best new artists during the 70s. David Porter produced and arranged, and the album has some great electric keyboard work by Rance that provides a perfect counterfoil for his rich baritone voice. The album's a lot more stripped down than later efforts – with a rootsy sound that should have made Rance even bigger with the crossover crowd. Titles include "Talk That Talk", "The Painter", "Ring My Bell", and "Harlem Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has split seams, several pieces of wide masking tape down and across the cover, with some faded marker on front.)

David AmramLatin Jazz Celebration ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... $5.99
An early 80s look at Latin jazz from David Amram – with a who's who of Latin jazz players and stellar jazz musicians of other realms – including Paquito D'Riveria, Candido, Machito & Machito Jr, Brazilian percussion guru Duduca Fonseca, David Fathead Newman, Jimmy Knepper, Pepper Adams and others others! What could have come out as clinical or academic comes through with passion and affection, partly because Amram could get such incredible players on the record, but mostly because the multi-instrumentalist ring leader is genuinely celebrating the music rather than simply replicating it. Includes "En Memoria De Chano Pozo, "New York Charanga", "Brazilian Memories", "Celebration", "Song Of The Rainforest" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

David AmramYoung Savages – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1961. New Copy ... $19.99
An overlooked jazz soundtrack from early 60s Hollywood – and some amazing early work from composer David Amram! Amram's always had an ear for higher-concept versions of jazz – but his approach here is a wonderful blend of modernity and spontaneity – just right for the sort of energy of the film, and it's JD "young savages" theme – and played by a very hip group of musicians that include Harold Land or George Barrow on tenor, Teo Macero on alto, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Amram himself on piano – playing in this very cool Monk-like style. Some cuts are more jazz combo modes – like the long jazz numbers, including "Harold's Way Out", "True Blue", and "Las Muchacas Delicadas". Other cuts have more of a soundtrack approach, but still with great jazz elements – and these include "Rooftops", "Help", "Subway Sounds", and "Theme From The Young Savages". CD

David Amram & George BarrowJazz Studio No 6 – Amram-Barrow Quartet/The Eastern Scene ... LP
Decca, 1957. Very Good- ... $24.99
An enigmatic set of modern jazz – recorded by the Amram-Barrow Quartet – an obscure group led by tenor saxophonist George Barrow and horn player David Amram, the latter of whom would go onto great fame in the 60s and 70s for his groundbreaking arrangements, soundtrack work, and world/jazz experiments! At this point, Amram's a young modernist with some very fresh ideas – and contributes some wonderful original tunes to the session with a moody east coast style that almost has traces of the Mingus camp – particularly the work of Jimmy Knepper and Pepper Adams. George Barrow's tone on the tenor is really tremendous – sharp and soulful, reminding us a bit of the freshness that Hank Mobley brought to some of his early sessions in the 50s, but with less of a hardbop fire. The rhythm in the group is by Arthur Phipps on bass and Al Harewood on drums (Amram plays a bit of piano as well) – and titles include "City Talk", "Someday Morning Will Come", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Phipps Quipps", "Lobo Nocho", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has light surface marks, but the heavy Decca vinyl still plays well. Cover is nice!)

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Sealed ... $3.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

Billy BangOutline No 12 ... LP
OAO/Celluloid, 1983. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Bang proves once again that he's one of the few jazz players who can make the violin work without being too flowery or too overindulgent – in a manner that almost makes you forget the instrument he's using, because you're so caught up in the waves of sound! The group features some prime NYC loft jazz players – including Frank Lowe, Wilbur Morris, Charles Tyler, David Murray, and Sunny Murray – and titles include "Conception", "Seeing Together", and "Outline No 12".

Bangor Flying CircusBangor Flying Circus ... LP
ABC/Dunhill, 1969. Near Mint- ... $16.99
An overlooked jazz rock combo from the late 60s US scene – a group with echoes of Cream and Soft Machine, but who also have a bit rootsier feel overall! The core instrumentation of the trio is organ, drums, and guitar – used in ways that stretch out and soar with jazzy inflections at times, but an overall groove that's much more in a progressive rock vein. All tracks have vocals from singers David Wolinski and Alan DeCarlo, often brought together in a slightly harmonized mode that reminds us a bit of some of the Chicano rock from the time, in a way that gives the album a bit more of a soulful undercurrent than you'd expect. Titles include "In The Woods", "Violent Man", "Come On People", "Ode To Sadness", "Concerto For Clouds", "A Change In Our Lives", "Mama Don't You Know", and a totally great instrumental jam on "Norwegian Wood" – done with scatting vocals over the organ, guitar, and heavy drums – and really worth the price of the record alone!

Robbie BashoSeal Of The Blue Lotus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
A perfect illustration of the genius of guitarist Robbie Basho – a set recorded early in his career, but with music that's light years ahead of most of his contemporaries! Although a set of solo acoustic guitar tracks, the music isn't really folk – nor is it the sort of acoustic underground music that would emerge more strongly in the 70s – and instead, it's got a real edge throughout – lots of odd tones and weird phrasings that almost preface a whole generation of guitar experimentalists like Derek Bailey or Eugene Chadbourne – yet still within a setting that's relatively tuneful overall! Basho's music has this subtle mysticism that we really love – and the solo sounds here are as evocative as the titles – which include "Mountain Man's Farewell", "Seal Of The Blue Lotus", "Sansara In Sweetness After Sandstorm", "Dravidian Sunday", and "Bardo Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy pressing – with a paste-on cover image, just like the original version!)

Clef, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $33.99
A beautiful early Verve recording by Basie – one that's packaged here in a great David Stone Martin cover, with a red and blue watercolor of Basie himself. Players include Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Ernie Wilkins, Marshall Royal, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, Bennie Powell, and Freddie Green – plus Basie, of course. Titles include "Two Franks", "Ska Di Didle Dee Bee Doo", "Rails", "Blues Backstage", and "Perdido" – and there's a very strong focus on the best soloists in the group! (Note: this material was also issued under the title The Band Of Distinction – but this is the first version.) LP, Vinyl record album
(Original black label Clef pressing with a trumpeter logo & deep groove! Cover has wear and aging with a sticker in one corner. Vinyl plays with some clicks & crackles.)

Warner, 1971. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A cool mixture of rock and electronics – a perfect example of the Beaver & Krause team at their best! The ensemble on this one is bigger than usual, and the players includes jazz musicians like Mike Bloomfield, Gerry Mulligan, and Howard Roberts – but Beaver & Krause still play a lot of moog, though, and the songs are pretty groovy – although a little short. Side 2 was recorded at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Titles include "Soft/White", "Walkin By The River", "Walkin", "Nine Moons In Alaska", "Bright Shadows", and "Short Film For David".

David BedfordStar's End ... LP
Virgin, 1974. Near Mint- ... $3.99
David Bedford's two part Star's End composition – his first album for Virgin and a wild piece of ambitious, out there orch rock! Star's End was commissioned to be performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra – a slow-building, tense and spacey work with and also quite subtle in surprising ways. Thre's an eerie, kind of lonely vibe, with is especially fascinating given the orchestra atmosherel, – though those moments lead up to bombastic bursts of horns and percussion. Includes "Stars End Part One" and "Stars End Part Two" – 22+ minutes each. Mike Oldfield plays guitar and bass and Chris Cutler is on percussion, and that duo's interplay with the orchestra really is something else! LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonSummertime – 2001/Good King Bad ... 12-inch
CTI, 1976. Very Good (pic cover)... $1.99
A nice CTI single – one that features a sparkling medley of "Summertime" and "2001" – done by George Benson with full orchestral backdrop, in a way that builds nicely as the tune goes on! The track starts mellow, with George singing beautifully on the start – the strings swirling around him like a hip soundtrack theme. He scats along with his guitar as the tune builds on, and the orchestral backdrop very slightly changes to "2001" in a very cool way! The flipside is straighter, and funkier – and features the title tune to George's Good King Bad album – with hip guitar over funky big band arrangements from David Matthews. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Gary BiasEast 101 ... LP
Nimbus, 1981. Sealed ... $79.99
A dream of a record from the LA spiritual underground of the 70s – and one of the only records we've ever seen from reedman Gary Bias! The date's got a soulful depth that makes it one of the most compelling albums on the legendary Nimbus label – a rhythmic pulse that's often modal, and a sense of spiritualism in the solos that often has Gary stretching out strongly on alto, soprano sax, or flute – yet always with an inherent focus, and strong sense of direction! Other players are equally great too – David Tillman on piano, Rickey Kelly on vibes, Roberto Miranda and John Heard on bass, and Fritz Wise on drums – and the tunes are wonderful original numbers that mark Bias as an extremely strong voice in jazz – one that should have gotten better exposure over the years. The album's got a great Strata East sort of vibe – and titles include "As Children Play", "East 101", "Asiki", "Arthur's Vamp", and "Dear Violet". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is shopworn, with some tears. Cover has some wear where exposed.)
