Reuben WilsonBlue Mode ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Heavy funk from the mighty Reuben Wilson – one of his first few albums for Blue Note, and a solid soulful groover that's right up there with Lou Donaldson's work for the label at the time! Tracks are nice and long, and pretty open – often with that kicking drum sound at the bottom that you'd normally associate with Idris Muhammad, but which is handled here by Tommy Derrick on drums. Melvin Sparks plays some mighty mean guitar – in that great lean early style of his – and the group's completed by John Manning on tenor, a player we don't know at all – but whose lines here are a great counterpart to Wilson's heavy Hammond! Titles include "Orange Peel", "Blue Mode", "Bambu", "Knock On Wood", "Twenty Five Miles", and "Bus Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mark De Clive-Lowe & OthersBlue Note Remixed Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note/Mashibeats, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A deep trip through the legendary Blue Note catalog – one that's headed up by keyboardist Mark De Clive-Lowe, who adds in plenty of his own music to the album too! Unlike other projects of this nature, which maybe push the original songs a bit more strongly, Mark really works his own magic with gems that are mostly from the 70s electric Blue Note years – sounds from the generation of Larry Mizell, Jack McDuff, Gene Harris, Gary Bartz, Donald Byrd, and other electrified stars – who get company from Mark's own keyboards alongside his live mixing of the music – which is also augmented by the bass of Pino Palladino, tenor sax of Nomad Pendergrass, and vocals from Bambu, Illa J, John Robinson, and Nia Andrews!

✨✧ Sal NisticoNeo/Nistico ... LP
Beehive, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic small group work from tenorist Sal Nistico – and one of the few records that really finds a way to capture his genius! Sal got his start in the Woody Herman band of the 60s – and although a standout there, he really shines even more brightly here in a small group setting – with a sharp edge on his horn that maybe only comes through this well in a handful of his European recordings, especially for the Ego label. In the spirit of that imprint, the great trumpeter Ted Curson is on board – and Sal's tone is also balanced out nicely by some equally great work from Nick Brignola on baritone. The rest of the combo is equally great – with superb rhythm from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Be My Love", "Blues For KD", "Bambu", "Fee Fi Fo Fum", and "Anthropology".

✨✧ Dennis WilsonPacific Ocean Blue (2CD legacy edition – limited deluxe package version) ... CD
Columbia, 1977. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly sweet solo effort from Beach Boy Dennis Wilson – a record of surprising depth and darkness, and arguably stronger than most of the albums at the time from the larger group! Dennis produced the album himself, with some executive help from James William Guerico – whose guidance here seems key, given the overall quality of the set. There's some echoes of Beach Boys' styles in the music, but the sound is much more personal as well – Wilson's ragged vocals in the lead on all numbers, sometimes upfront and fragile, sometimes given a bit more umph through the use of processing – at that level that the whole group would often experience in the studio during the 70s. The album's as much of a showcase for Dennis' writing skills as it is for his vocals – and songs are co-written with co-producer Gregg Jakobson, as well as Carl Wilson, Mike Love, and Karen Lamm-Wilson. Titles include "River Song", "Friday Night", "Thoughts Of You", "Dreamer", "Time", "You And I", and "What's Wrong". This limited version of the expanded Legacy edition is really amazing – with a huge booklet of notes and photos, as well as essays on Dennis' music – plus session bonus tracks that include "Mexico", "Holy Man", "Only With You", and "Tug Of Love". Also features a full bonus CD with the sessions for the unreleased Bambu album – with tracks that include "School Girl", "It's Not Too Late", "Under The Moonlight", "Are You Real", "He's A Bum", "Cocktails", "I Love You", "Constant Companion", and "Time For Bed".

✨✧ Joao DonatoBad Donato ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A wickedly funky album from Joao Donato – quite different than his earlier bossa sessions, and recorded in LA with a sweet jazzy bounce! The album's overflowing with great keyboard work – and Joao plays both piano and organ, in a group that includes percussion from Emil Richards, who also produced the set with this mad skittish edge that's awash in crazy and off-kilter rhythms! Deodato helped a bit with the arrangements, too – and the album's got an electric feel that's somewhat similar to Deodato's own work on CTI, but a lot more messed up – and with that sense of odd instrumental placement that we love so much in Donato's classic Quem E Quem album! Tracks are all pretty darn great – and titles include "Mosquito", "Bambu", "Cade Jodel", "Lunar Tune", and "The Frog", nicely done here in a funky version! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova ConsonanzaNiente ... CD
Gemelli (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
pierAn amazing lost album from the legendary Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – a sextet of Italian modernists that included Ennio Morricone! The album may well be the group's grooviest ever – recorded right after their legendary Feed-back set, and done with a similar blend of compelling rhythms and odd instrumentation – in ways that are undeniably funky at points, and downright trippy at others! The drumming seems to draw a lot from the changes in German prog – with a very specific Can influence at work – and other elements move in and out of the mix in a really great way – clearly improvisational, but when the groove gets going, it's clear that the players also can't help starting to jam. The record was recorded in 1971, but never issued at the time – and titles include "Niente", "Bambu", "Toms", "Renitenza", "Mattatoio", "Down", "Sieben", and "Bali". CD

✨✧ Los HacherosBambulaye ... LP
Chulo, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard-driving Latin from Los Hacheros – a group of younger players who really get the sound of the classic era down perfectly – mixing Cuban roots, descarga jamming, and some really wonderful vocal refrains throughout! Instrumentation is heavy on percussion, and the grooves feature lots of bold lines on tres – which brings a nice edge to the record, especially alongside some of the sweeter moments on flute or violin – although those instruments can also be used in more driving ways at times too. Titles include "Las Nieves De Brooklyn", "Bambulaye", "Pintate", "Timbalaye", "Descarga Para Abe", and "Quiera Madre". LP, Vinyl record album
