Chris Hinze CombinationBamboo Magic ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the few American albums issued by this Dutch funky flautist who cut more than his share of heavy discs on the other side of the Atlantic. Hinze was part of the lowland funk scene that included John Lee & Gerry Brown (both of whom are on this record), and his music shares a similar spacey fusion quality, with very long drawn out grooves. The title cut – "Bamboo Magic" – is a nice funky cut with Hubert Eaves on Fender Rhodes, and other cuts include "Essence", "Le Mistral", "Venga", and "I'm Gonna Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul BleyImprovisie ... LP
America/Bamboo (France), 1972. New Copy ... $23.99
Incredible work from Paul Bley – and a record that captures him in his excellent electric period, working in a different setting than we've heard him elsewhere! The group on the set is a trio – one that matches Bley's work on electric piano and synthesizer with percussion from Han Bennink and vocals, piano, bass, and additional synthesizer from a young Annette Peacock! Peacock is especially restrained on the record – especially if you only know her later, straighter work – and her contribution here is wonderfully subtle and extremely lovely. Side one features the track "Improvisie", a free improvisation with Bley on electric piano and synthesizer – and tonalities are as "out" as the playing, which is generally quite spacious and dynamic – though hardly quiet. The second side features a Peacock tune titled "Touching" that's a bit more intense – very much in the spirit of the work on the first side, and a unique slice of magic from this one-off session!

Mel & TimBackfield In Motion/Do Right Baby ... 7-inch
Bamboo, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
We love these guys – and both cuts are great! "Backfield In Motion" is a huge hit for the duo – with amazingly acrobatic vocals, and a strange little hook that's a lot more enduring than you'd imagine. "Do Right" is just as great, with a jaunty little groove, and the kind of vocal pyrotechnics that always made Mel & Tim so great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Edwin BirdsongDance Of Survival (with bonus track) ... CD
Bamboo/Shout (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tripped out funky soul from the great Edwin Birdsong – a rare indie album released between his years at Polydor and Philly International! The set's got a wilder sound than any of his other work – kind of a righteous funk set for the dancefloor – recorded with lots of weird production touches, edgey guitar bits, and a style that's almost psychedelic-folk-jazz-disco! Birdsong's lyrics are more "out there" than ever, and there's some great spacey production that really makes the whole thing sound great – and which gives the record a very cool feel that's unlike anything else we can think of. A real lost treasure from the 70s indie underground – with titles that include "Dance Of Survival", "What's Your Sign", "Night Of The Full Moon", "Astral Walk", and "Your Smile Gave Birth To My Idea". CD features the bonus 7" mix of "Dance Of Survival". CD

Brewer & ShipleyDown In LA ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The A&M debut of Brewer & Shipley – and a set that's got a lot deeper sound than the duo's later radio hits! There's a youthful, earnest feel going on here – touched with a bit of sunshine, too – all in that wonderfully fresh feel you'll get from the early A&M forays into rock – this magical vibe that's not nearly as posturing, or as self-conscious as some of the heavier projects from bigger labels at the time. Songwriting is sensitive, delivered beautifully by the two voices – and instrumentation often has acoustic elements that echo the love of country that was bubbling in the LA scene of this late 60s Byrds generation. Yet the vibe is quite different than anything you might know, too – almost somewhere between the Roger Nichols Trio and Lambert & Nuttycomb – showing a nice A&M evolution that links together both acts. Titles include "She Thinks", "Truly Right", "Green Bamboo", "Dreamin In The Shade", "Love Love", and "An Incredible State Of Affairs". LP, Vinyl record album

Ryo KawasakiJuice ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few American releases by this legendary Japanese fusion artist – and a pretty funky little record as well! Ryo Kawasaki plays lead guitar and the very cool "string synthesizer" on the set – making for a sweet mix of electric grooves that has some really great spacey touches! Tracks have a core funky base at the bottom – grooving in a mode that's tight, but never too slick – and which allows just the right amount of space to make the album work in equal parts electric jazz and funky fusion. The whole thing's great, and tracks include the great sample cut "Bamboo Child", plus other nice groovers that include "Raisins", "East Side Boogie", and "El Toro". CD

✨✧ Arthur LymanPercussion Spectacular (aka Yellow Bird) ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Sweet exotic sounds from the Arthur Lyman group – heavy on vibes and lots of hip percussion – recorded with a gently swaying feel that recalls the best energy of the Hawaiian scene in the postwar years! The set's one of Lyman's early solo dates – recorded Henry Kaiser Aluminum Dome in Hawaii – which you can almost hear in the way the sounds here resonate, and hang sweetly in air. The tunes are pretty mellow, but in a good way – more sonically sensitive than some more gimmicky, sound effect-heavy exotica – and titles include "Adventures in Paradise", "Andalusia", "Yellow Bird", "Arrivederci Roma", "Sweet & Lovely", "Bamboo Taboo", "Granada", and "Ravel's Bolero". Fire up that console stereo and break out the Tiki glasses! LP, Vinyl record album

Marlin/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
One of percussionist Ralph MacDonald's best albums of the late 70s – and one of the few on his own, given how many other records he played on! The set's a complicated mix of jazz, soul, and a variety of rootsier elements – and MacDonald shows a lot of sides of his personality here – stretching out in the ambitious "The Path" suite, which takes up all of side one, then hitting some more laidback jazz funk on the shorter tracks on side two. "The Path" traces a wide development of percussion – from African styled drumming on the intro, to some tighter clubbier jazz funk by the Bamboo Steel Band on later passages. Side two features a great percussive jammer called "It Feels So Good" – done with almost a Latin Jazz feel, and some sweet electric piano – plus the tracks "Smoke Rings & Wine", "I Cross My Heart", and "If I'm Still Around Tomorrow".

NYC, 1981. Used ... $8.99
A real killer from vibesman Mike Mainieri – a set that's got a darker edge than some of his previous work, while still hanging onto all the warm touches of his own instrument in the lead! Backings are full, but never uptight – and there's a loosness to the record that really works well with the vibes – an electric mode that's warm and often a bit spontaneous – served up with help from Warren Bernhardt and Don Grolnick on keyboards, Jeremy Steig on flute, and Kazuo Watanabe on guitar! Tunes are pretty darn fresh – some really inventive writing that pushes the edges, but not in a jamming fusion way – and titles include "Crossed Wires", "Bullet Train", "L'Image", "Flying Colours", "Wanderlust", and "Bamboo".

Titles include "Bluegarian Funk Dance", "El Tropical", "Lenguas", "Bamboo", "After Sunrise", and "Parallax". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... LP
Warner, 1973. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

David Toop & Paul BurwellSuttle Sculpture ... LP
Sub Rosa (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy ... $15.99
Fantastic sound experiments from David Toop – maybe some of his most improvised music on record, done in collaboration with Paul Burwell – one of Toop's main musical partners since the late 60s! Both musicians handle a wide variety of instruments – flutes, whistles, percussion, water, glasses, elastic, and a number of bamboo instruments – used sparingly and spaciously, in a performance that was recorded at the Palais Des Beaux Arts in Brussels in 1977. The music is maybe the most perfect realization of some of the more radical ideas of Toop's earlier years – and is much more open than some of his later work. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don CherryMu First Part/Mu Second Part ... CD
BYG/Fuel 2000, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles include "Total Vibration", "Sun Of The East", "Brilliant Action", "Terrestrial Beings", "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon".

Chiming, largely acoustic instrumentation acoustic and twelve-string rhythm guitar, mandolin, cello, violin, drums, bongos, bamboo and Andean flutes. The structure ranges from airy atmospherics to more profoundly song-based (with more vocals)– and it pulls us in strongly both ways. Titles include "La Flor", "Cholito Pantalon Blanco", "Valicha", "Tondero", "Secuencias De Organillo Y Polophon" and more. Includes the bonus track "El Mundo Revivido" with vocals by Susana Baca. CD

A mindblowing mix of acoustic and electric elements – a set that's in part very much like some of the more freewheeling work of cornetist Rob Mazurek, but which also features an organic core in the presence of AACM reedman Mwata Boden! Bowden adds in clarinet, baritone, didgeridoo, and percussion – all of which provide a very striking contrast and strong sense of soul alongside the electric guitar of Julian Desprez, electric bass of Matt Lux, and acoustic guitar of Mathieu Sourisseau – a French/Chicago combination of players who really stretch out here on two long tracks! Mazurek also adds some electronics next to his cornet – as on other recordings – and the set features the great addition of Douglas Ewart on half of the set – whose use of English horn and bamboo piccolo echo the spiritual currents of Bowden. Titles include "Fourth View" and "Second Side". CD

180g (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album that bills itself as a cross between Afro Funk and Japanese traditional music – but a set that also comes up with some nice contemporary soul currents as well! The instrumentation is definitely funky – with lots of driving percussion, often of Japanese origin, but used in the faster, frenzied style you'd know from Nigerian music – and mixed with riffing guitar and basslines that further drive on the sound, although the core sonic elements come from all the acoustic instruments in the mix! There's some great bamboo-oriented percussion alongisde more familiar drums – and vocals at a few points take on some nice spiritual tones too.

One of the best albums ever from Japanese guitarist Ryo Kawasaki – a set recorded with help from a hip array of American players who really help come up with a tight, soulful, electric groove! Kawasaki plays both electric and acoustic guitar – and as on other records, there's a strong dose of the organic that really sets his playing apart from other fusion artists of the time – a bit of exoticism, maybe, almost echoing some Japanese folk roots – but always focused more strongly into jazz-based territory. Artists on the set include Sam Morrison on flute and soprano sax, Larry Willis on Fender Rhodes, Alex Blkake on bass, Badal Roy on tabla, and Steve Gorn on bamboo flute – and titles include the great track "Frostbite" – plus "Tane's Dream", "Bones", "Sombrero", "Sarabande", and "Suite In D".

In addition to his usual alto, Jackie plays bells, bamboo flute, percussion, piano, and kalimba – and Carvin's not only on drums, but a range of similar instruments as well. The feel is really great, and a good reminder that McLean was still incredibly inventive at the time – nearly a decade after his best Blue Note "new thing" work! Titles include "Gong Go Lye", "Ti Ti", "Down In The Bottom", and the extended "Antiquity" suite. CD

One of the best moments ever from the Sun City Girls – a set recorded after the group had soaked up a fair bit of global influences on a trip to India, which really shows in the range of styles and instrumentation used on the record! The core sound is still pretty noise-based – and still often with that tripped-out, sometimes nonsensical approach that made the group so unique – but there's also lots of global percussion elements at play, plus African oboe, lute, bamboo shakers, raita, and more – as well as "waters of space", "stolen casino velvet", "freshly cut foliage", and "Chino valley witchcraft" at play. The guitars still dominate – linking the record to earlier albums– and titles include "Radar 1941", "Papa Legba", "Space Prophet Dogon", "Blue Mamba", "Tarmac 23", and "Cafe Batik".

✨✧ Bob Downes Open MusicFive Trios ... CD
Bob Downes Music/Openian (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from British reedman Bob Downes – a host of previously-unissued 70s recordings, all of them trio numbers with a wonderfully stripped-down feel! Downes is possibly best known for his larger group experiments of the Open Music years – but here, he comes across as much more of a cutting-edge jazzman – blowing a variety of reeds, including flute, tenor, alto, and soprano saxes (sometimes simultaneously!) – with only just bass and drums to back him up! Yet as with most of Bob's other recordings from the time, there's a wonderful sense of rhythm to these cuts – never too free, and always with an inherent groove that hangs somewhere between the modal and the harmelodic. The drummer on all cuts is Denis Smith, and bassists include Barry Guy, Jeff Clyne, and Marc Meggido – on tracks that include "Bamboo Blaze", "Spooks", "Living It Up In Rio", "Desert Waltz", "Circus", "Moonstruck", and "Ghosts In Space".

✨✧ Randy WestonSolo Piano – Live ... CD
Hi Hat, 1985/1993. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great solo material from pianist Randy Weston – two broadcast performances from years when he wasn't captured all that much on record – which makes both sessions a much-needed addition to his catalog! The first half of the set features a 1985 solo performance at the Bamboo Club in Ontario – broadcast by CBC, with wonderful fidelity that really captures Weston's dark touch on the keys – at a level that rivals some of his European solo performances from the decade before. Titles include a version of "Tanja", a mix of "Body & Soul/The Healers", and an untitled track. The second half is from a performance in Edmonton in 1993 – a time when Weston's star was really rising again, which almost seems to be evident in the dynamic range he brings to his performance! There's a nice degree of bite here – strong, bold lines that ring out in those elliptical ways that show a strong influence from African rhythms – on the long tracks "Night In Mbari" and "African Village Bedford Stuyvesant/Little Niles/The Healers".

Trojan (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The term "copasetic" was first coined by Bill Bojangles Robinson in the 30s – but the word is a perfect one to describe the vibe here – an easygoing groove, served up in dozens of killer cuts from the early ska and rocksteady years of Trojan Records! Given the image of a British mod on the front, you can bet that these are the kind of tracks that played big on the London scene in the second half of the 60s – tunes that were not only serving the big wave of Jamaican immigrants on the English shores, but also having a huge impact on the nation's youth of the time too. But even without any sort of history behind the music, there's still plenty to love here – a huge amount of cuts that includes some Trojan classics and lots of other deeper tracks too – titles that include "Yeah Yeah" by The Riots, "Wrong Emboyo" by The Rulers, "University Goes Ska" by Don Drummond, "Storm Warning" by Lynn Taitt & The Boys, "Wise Man" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Nuclear Weapon" by Roland Alphonso, "Keep The Pressure On" by Winston & George, "Bonanaza Ska" by Carlos Malcolm & His Afro-Jamaican Rhythms, "Contact" by Roy Richards, "The Jerk" by Derrick Harriott, "Inez" by Lester Sterling & Tommy McCook, "Big Bamboo" by Lord Creator, and "The Higher The Monkey Climbs" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes.

"The Path" traces a wide development of percussion – from African styled drumming on the intro, to some tighter clubbier jazz funk by the Bamboo Steel Band on later passages.

New World, 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful works we've ever heard from composer Harry Partch – music created upon his return to northern California, in a space of new creative freedom – where Partch and some of his younger followers made these really organic, really breathtaking sounds on those famous instruments of his own creation! The Gate 5 Ensemble here is a sextet, with Partch in the lead – playing bamboo marimba, drone devil, cloud chamber bowls, zymo-xyl, boo tubes, and other amazing melodic engines from Harry's own imagination – used in ways that almost feel like a way-out take on territory explored by Moondog in the decade before, especially given that the piece is composed of 34 shorter verses. This beautiful package also includes the never-issued "Petals Sessions Montage", and "Verse 17" from the original draft – which has Party on an adapted viola. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SuicideFirst Rehearsal Tapes ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The earliest sounds ever recorded by Suicide – music that even pre-dates their monumental debut album from 1977 – but which has an equally fuzzy, freaky vibe overall! The music here is maybe slightly more mellow – not as confrontational as the stance the duo would take a few years later, but still completely revolutionary – and forged out of the same stark sonic melange of the vocals of Alan Vega and electronics of Martin Rev – used brilliantly throughout, in ways that are completely different from the overblown qualities of so much of the mid 70s mainstream! You'll definitely hear a few echoes of later songs in the mix here, but most of the music stands strongly on its own – as maybe kind of the first flowering of genius from Suicide – and, given their all-too-small catalog, an important addition to their legacy. Titles include "New City", "Do It Nice", "Space Blue Bamboo", "Spaceship", "Sneakin Around", "Tough Guy", "A-Man", and "Creature Feature". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic electric album from one of the most unique bassists of the 70s – and one that also features help from a hip American rhythm trio too! By the time of this set, Isao Suzuki had already made some incredible records for the Three Blind Mice label – sets that showcased both his inventive work on bass and cello, with very different phrasing than most other players of his generation. This set moves things back into maybe a more familiar fusion mode, but still with plenty of fresh elements too – as Suzuki works in a sextet with Kazumi Watanabe and Kazumasa Akiyama on guitars – plus great work on both Fender Rhodes and piano from Cedar Walton, alongside bass from Sam Jones and drums from Billy Higgins. The mix of players is even better on record than it sounds on paper – and titles include "Cadillac Woman", "Going Home", "Blue Road", and "Bamboo". CD

BamboosNight Time People ... CD
BMG (Australia), 2018. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Given their longstanding love of classic funk, The Bamboos are definitely night time people – but this time around, maestro Lance Ferguson also seems to have opened up their groove – pushing things with a stronger, bolder vibe that might well give the group the long-overdue international fame they deserve! We've been digging the kiwi combo for well over a decade – and also loving all of Ferguson's side projects too – but this time around, they come across like a group that's ready to take on the world – mixing more soul-styled elements into their music, and maybe even the occasional 80s British vibe too – almost that blend of catchy elements and soulful styles that we always loved in the early Style Council material. There's a great female singer in the lead on most cuts, J-Live guests on one number, and titles include "Lit Up", "Stranded", "Salvage Rites", "Night Time People", "Pony Up", "War Story", "Backfired", "Broken", "San Junipero", "You Should Have Been Mine", and "Golden Ticket".

BMG (Australia), 2018. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Given their longstanding love of classic funk, The Bamboos are definitely night time people – but this time around, maestro Lance Ferguson also seems to have opened up their groove – pushing things with a stronger, bolder vibe that might well give the group the long-overdue international fame they deserve! We've been digging the kiwi combo for well over a decade – and also loving all of Ferguson's side projects too – but this time around, they come across like a group that's ready to take on the world – mixing more soul-styled elements into their music, and maybe even the occasional 80s British vibe too – almost that blend of catchy elements and soulful styles that we always loved in the early Style Council material. There's a great female singer in the lead on most cuts, J-Live guests on one number, and titles include "Lit Up", "Stranded", "Salvage Rites", "Night Time People", "Pony Up", "War Story", "Backfired", "Broken", "San Junipero", "You Should Have Been Mine", and "Golden Ticket".
