Stan KentonArtistry In Rhythm – A Collection Of Kenton Favorites (plus albums Kenton In Hi-Fi & Cuban Fire) ... CD
Capitol/Avid (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
Genius, pure genius! If you've ever wondered why folks think Stan is so great, check out this landmark set of postwar modern swing tunes – some of the most groundbreaking work of its generation, and proof that there was still a lot of room to grow within the big band format. June Christy provides some icy vocals on a few numbers, and other strong players on the set include Vido Musso, Boots Mussulli, Kai Winding, Eddie Safranski, and Shelly Manne. Arrangements are by Pete Rugolo, Gene Roland, and Stan – and titles include "Artistry In Bass", "Artistry In Percussion", "Fantasy", "Come Back To Sorrento", "Soothe Me", "Opus In Pastels", and "Artistry In Bolero". Includes the albums Kenton In Hi-Fi & Cuban Fire! CD

Jimmy KnepperIdol Of The Flies (aka Swinging Introduction To Jimmy Knepper) ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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

AfriqueSoul Makossa ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that situation – kind of a quickie project issued by Mainstream Records to cash in on the hit – but it's also an amazing bit of lost funk, and a record that's lasted for years in the hearts of beatheads! The group's a studio combo headed by Richard Fritz – and includes funky drummer Paul Humphrey, organist Charles Kynard, and guitarist David T Walker – all players we can trust to keep things groovy. The record does include a version of "Soul Makossa" that's pretty great – but even better is the breakbeat classic "House Of The Rising Funk", apparently the same version of the track that was issued on a 45 under the name The Chubukos. Other nice ones include "Kissing My Love", "Hot Mud", "Get It", "Hot Doggin", and "Let Me Do My Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AirtoFingers ... LP
CTI, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of California soul! Flora Purim joins in here on both vocals and percussion – and the rest of the group features Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards and harmonica, Jorgte Fattoruso on drums, and David Amaro on both electric and acoustic guitars – shifting nicely between both instruments in a way that further underscores the blended vibe of the record! Most of these tracks are Airto classics – like "Tombo in 7/4", "San Francisco River", "Romance Of Death", "Ringers", and "Wind Chant" – and the record has a very sweet CTI production style, but is still rough enough around the edges to keep things nice and real!

✨✧ Eric AlexanderTemple Of Olympic Zeus ... CD
High Note, 2007. Used ... $7.99
A cheesy cover, but a rock-solid set of work from the mighty Eric Alexander – who seems to be stretching out even more here than before! Alexander's always been a hell of a straight ahead talent on the tenor, but here he's almost hitting a few more modern modes at times – not "out" in his soloing, but a bit more free thinking in the overall construction and execution of the tunes – willing to change things up a bit in the rhythms, and give the record even more freshness than we might have expected. Alexander's easily one of the greatest living talents in jazz recording today – and we're already huge fans of his work – but he's won us over even more with this set, and a few of the chances he takes on some of the tunes. The group's a well-matched batch of regulars – including Jim Rotondi on trumpet, David Hazeltine on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and titles include "The Temple Of Olympic Zeus", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Lucas Too", "Blues For David", "I'm Gonna Laugh You Right Out Of My Life", "I'll Keep Loving You", and "Dave's System".

Laurindo AlmeidaClassical Current – Electronic Excursions ... LP
Warner, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A wonderful record from guitarist Laurindo Almeida – way way better than the title might make you think, and quite different from his albums for Capitol! The album is subtitled "electronic excursions", and while it's not exactly electronic, it does feature Almeida soloing over some nicely groovy backings that drift along in a very spacious way. There's a bit of keyboards in the mix somewhere, lots of strings, and some airy grooves that make the album dance in a magical way that most of Almeida's work does not. Arrangements are by Larry Cansler, Pete King, and Lex De Azevedo (David Axelrod?) – and titles include "The Lamp Is Low", "Till The End Of Time", "Full Moon & Empty Arms", "Moon Love", and "When I Write My Song".

David AmramLatin Jazz Celebration ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1983. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
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. CD

VSOP, 1973/1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
A lost treasure from the LA scene of the early 70s – never-heard music by a really exceptional band, one who plays here with a lot more depth and feeling than you'd guess from the cover – with solos by older west coast jazz greats who include Bob Cooper and Bill Perkins! Composer David Angel heads up the group – a lesser-known, but brilliant talent – and one with an ear for penning tunes that explode in color, but in these really well-crafted ways – sort of post-Stan Kenton, taken through the complexities of the soundtrack generation of folks like Johnny Mandel or Jerry Goldsmith – then re-swung, and brought back to jazz. Titles include "Perk's Tune", "For B & D", "Lady Puttering", "Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me", "Canadian Sunburst", and "Saturday Night At The Casa Tropical". CD

David AxelrodHeavy Axe ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great back-to-basics solo album from the legendary David Axelrod – cut in the mid 70s for Fantasy Records, after higher-concept projects like The Auction and Messiah! This set gets right to the core – and focuses on the funk currents that were always part of Axelrod's larger arrangements, but which sometimes never got pulled to the forefront as strongly – and the approach is almost like some of the funky jazz albums that were issued by Fantasy/Prestige Records at the time – especially those that Axelrod produced for Cannonball Adderley. The whole thing has that great Axelrod sense of composition, with lots of space, and lots of spare cold bits that are nice nice nice for sample cuts – and titles include the classic track "Everything Counts", plus "Get Up Off Your Knees", "My Family", and "Mucho Chupar".

Kevin AyersShooting At The Moon ... CD
Harvest/Water, 1970. Used ... $14.99
A wonderful little record – one that's filled with subtle charms and surprising moments of beauty – played by an intimate group of musicians who include Lol Coxhill, David Bedford, and Mike Oldfield! In a way, the record's a bit of a precursor for some of the experiments to come from Coxhill and Bedford – because the set blends together bits of rock, jazz, and other musics – all with a careful sense of production that filters the best elements together nicely, the focuses them into some extremely compelling tunes. Ayers sings on most numbers, but the instrumental side of the album almost gets greater focus – and titles include "May I", "Pisser Dans Un Violon", "The Oyster & The Flying Fish", "Shooting At The Moon", "Red Green & You Blue", "Underwater", and "Lunatics Lament".

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Near Mint- ... $44.99
Pre-ESP Records work from the legendary Albert Ayler – and a really special set that definitely shows his strong ties to a previous legacy of African-American music! Ayler always clamed blues and other roots in his sound, but didn't always show them as clearly – given his free-thinking, forward-moving approach – yet this set has Albert really reworking an older influence, by taking older songs from gospel and secular sources, and using them as a completely compelling springboard for his new ideas on tenor and soprano sax! The album's the sort that David Murray might have cut in the mid 80s – but conceived by Ayler two decades before – and sadly unissued for years after its recording, possibly because it's a very sensitive, soulful set that's different than the frenetic power of later albums on ESP. A real treasure throughout – with work from Call Cobbs Jr on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Murray on drums – on titles that include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Deep River", "Goin Home", "Ol Man River", "Down By The Riverside", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

Pierre BarouhLe Pollen ... CD
Saravah (France), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Pierre Barouh – a rare Japanese recording done in the early 80s, with a sound that's quite different from his earlier work – but equally great! The album's never too poppy, or overdone – certainly quite far from conventional 80s work – thanks to help on the session from YMO and David Sylvian, who both bring in some wonderful sensibilities of their own. There's a bit of electronics on the album, but they're used quite softly – creating a cool pillow of sound – layers through which Barouh weaves his amazingly cool voice. There's a nice sense of darkness to the record, with loads of cool late night tracks, and a sound that's still very sexy and French. Tracks include "Les Uns & Les Autres", "St. Paul De Vence", "Demain", and "L'Autre Rive" – and as usual, some tracks were co-written with soundtrack legend Francis Lai. CD

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

George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Black HeatDeclassified Grooves – Black Heat/No Time To Burn ... CD
Atlantic/Label M, Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
The first 2 rare funk albums by Black Heat in one package! The group was one of the best funk acts to record for Atlantic during the 70s – and they've got a sound that's a mixture of New Orleans funk, African influences, and New York heavy jamming. The tracks are about 50% instrumental – and these are the best numbers, as they've got a tightly compressed groove, mixing choppy guitar, hot organ licks, and sweet sax solos into a very tight blend. The first album's got some guest work on reeds by David Newman – but the real strength lies in the group's overall ability to lay down a funky rhythm track and keep it going strong and long. Titles include "Chip's Funk", "Super Cool", "M&M's", "No Time To Burn", "Love The Life You Live", "Rapid Fire", "Things Change", "Wanoah", "Barbara's Mood", "Chicken Heads", "The Jungle", "Send My Lover Back", "Honey Love", and "Time Is gonna Catch You".
