Eddie FisherEddie Fisher & The Next One Hundred Years ... LP
Cadet, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Madly tripped out guitar funk – and a real turning point in the career of guitarist Eddie Fisher! Eddie began his career as a straighter guitarist on the St Louis scene – and although his first album for Cadet was a relatively traditional soul-jazz outing, this one's a wild batch of tripped-out guitar licks! The band's a fuzzy psychedelic one – not in a rock-styled way, but more in an early George Clinton kind of mode, with plenty of rumbling bass at the bottom, warm electric piano lines, nicely placed drum beats, and Eddie's fuzzbox guitar snaking and wah wah-ing over the top! Eddie arranged and produced, and the record's a perfect batch of kicked-back stoner funk numbers that go on and on and on and on! Titles include "Land Of Our Father", "Beautiful Things", "East St Louis Blues", "Another Episode", "Either Or", and "Jeremiah Pucket". LP, Vinyl record album

Flesh EatersMinute To Pray, A Second to Die ... CD
Slash/Superior Viaduct, 1981. New Copy ... $14.99
Wicked early 80s punk from The Flesh Eaters – with some fun nods to trash culture and B-movies the cover art, song titles and lyrical imagery – but it's also some of most slyly ambitious sounds from the west coast punk scene of the time! It's clear from the first track they're going for something more instrumentally adventurous than others at the time, with sax and off kilter hand percussion all over it – but Chris D's vision and caterwauling presense as front man keeps it nice and raucous. X's John Doe and DJ Bonebrake Flesh Eaters at the time, along with sax player Steve Berlin, later to play with Los Lobos – and even roots rock hero Dave Alvin – that's hell of a punk band, right?! Titles include "Digging My Grave", "Satan's Stomp", "So Long", "Cryan De Berger's Back", "Divine Horseman", "See You In The Boneyard" and more. CD

Henry Flynt & The InsurrectionsI Don't Wanna ... CD
Locust, 1966. Used ... $8.99
Avant garde aggro protest rock from the Henry Flynt archives – his 1966 blues & folk freak out I Don't Wanna with his group the Insurrections! It's a loose, aggressive and fairly wild outsider take on post protest folk and the outer fringes of small combo primitive rock – Flynt on vocals and guitar with Walter De Maria on drums, Art Murphy on keys and Paul Breslin on acoustic bass. As messy as it is, the band does find an off kilter groove, and the sound has strains of the Velvets, the Seeds & Monks schoos of crazed caterwaul, and the rural soundscapes that clearly caught Flynt's imagination in a big way – but done in a more uninhibited way than any of the more form following acts of the time. Titles include "Uncle Sam Do", "Good By Wall St", "Go Don", "Corona Del Mar", "Missionary Stew", "Jumping", "Sky Turned Red", "I Don't Wanna" and "Dreams Away". CD

Frank FosterLoud Minority ... CD
Mainstream/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most amazing albums ever from Frank Foster – a totally righteous set that's light years ahead of his earlier work with the Basie Band! The format here is right up there with the best on Strata East at the time – a large-group session that's filled with some of the hippest players of the early 70s – all coming together with a joyous, spiritual sense of power! Foster's in the lead on tenor and soprano sax, but other players include Cecil Bridgewater and Hannibal Marvin Peterson on trumpets, Harold Mabern on keyboards, Elvin Jones on drums, Dick Griffin on trombone, Stanley Clarke on bass, Airto on percussion, and even Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals! Tracks are all quite long and flowing – spiritual expressions of jazz that rival the greatness of anything recorded for Impulse – and titles include "The Loud Minority", "Requiem For Dusty", "JP's Thing", and "EW – Beautiful People".

Funk IncChicken Lickin' ... LP
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 19.99
Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Funk IncHangin' Out/Superfunk ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Two excellent albums from Funk Inc on one CD! Superfunk is one of the band's greatest albums – and a really tight batch of funky tunes given some stellar production by David Axelrod! The band's a bit tighter than on earlier releases – leaving behind the hard jazz-jam sound for a more together soul-oriented one, heard to best effect on the album's enduring classic, "Goodbye, So Long" – a rolling funky tune that features vocals on the chorus, and an unbelievably catchy instrumental sound that you might recognize instantly from its use as a sample over the years. The rest of the record's just as great – and the band runs through The Meters' classic "Message From The Meters", Barry White's funky "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Babe", and a great rendition of the electric jazz classic "The Hill Where The Lord Hides". Hangin Out features their organ-heavy sound vamping away on some really tight groovers – not as break-heavy as some of the tracks on their first album, but with some excellent modal riffing in a sweet jazz dance mode. The big cuts include "Smokin' At Tiffany's" and "Dirty Red", both groove classics that have a strong Prestige jazz funk sound. Other cuts include a sweet cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love", plus the tracks "We Can Be Friends" and "I'll Be Around". CD

FunkadelicConnections & Disconnections ... LP
Far Out/LA Records, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Was Clinton in jail when this one came out? We can't remember, but the back cover does say specifically "This album does not include any performances or creations by George Clinton." The band does include Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas, Ken Blackmon, Calvin Simon, and others – and the sound is not bad early 80s slap-bass funk, with lots of nice electronified moments. Titles include "Phunklords", "The Witch", "Connections & Disconnections", "Call The Doctor", and "Who's A Funkadelic". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

FunkadelicCosmic Slop (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision hinted at in the Maggot Brain years! The tunes are shorter, funkier, and catchier – and the vocals are especially great – so much so than on the title cut "Cosmic Slop" has harmonies so great you'd swear you were listening to late-Motown Temptations! Other tracks continue with a great soul-based focus, and include "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure", "Nappy Dugout", "No Compute", and "Can't Stand the Strain" – and the record is packaged in a mind-blowing wraparound cover by Pedro Bell, the first of many the band would use! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FunkadelicFree Your Mind . . . And Your Ass Will Follow (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid! We don't know if that story's entirely true, but the music on the album certainly backs it up – as it's some of the band's freest, most open-ended, most heavy-jamming work ever recorded! Guitars dominate over funky bass and drums – and the whole thing's an amazing blend of music, swirled together into a non-stop psychedelic party that includes P-Funk gems like "Funky Dollar Bill", "Free Your Mind", "Eulogy and Light", and "I Wanna Know If It's Good To You".

FusionTop Soul ... CD
Alba/Lion, 1975. New Copy ... $8.99
Top Soul indeed, as Fusion is a hip Chilean funk band from the early 70s – one who take plenty of influence from American grooves, but also bring in their own soulful elements as well! The sound here is somewhere between Kool & The Gang and Banda Black Rio – with quite a bit of the blend of the latter, especially in the way more local percussion riffs fill out grooves that have a solid grounding in American funk! Instrumentation listed is tenor, guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – but there's clearly a lot more horns too, as well as some very hip percussion – played in ways that are almost more Brazilian than straight Latin – with a really fluid sensibility that jams nicely with the grooves. There's a slight bit of vocals on the record, but most of the album is instrumental – and titles include versions of Sly Stone's "Thank You" and The Crusaders "Way Back Home" – plus "Dedos", "Balada De Matias", "Dee Blooz", "Para Toda La Gente", "Pulsearas", and "Lamentation".

Hal Gaylor/Walter Norris/Billy BeanTrio ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used ... $11.99
A very strange and obscure session recorded for Riverside in 1961 – and featuring the talents of Walter Norris on piano, Hal Gaylor on bass, and Billy Bean on guitar. The interplay between the members is fantastic – and the band falls in a tradition that reaches from the early Red Norvo groups to some of the ensembles that Jimmy Giuffre or Jim Hall worked with. The lead-off cut, "Grooveyard", is a great one – filled with power an intensity that you wouldn't guess from a group like this – and the album has lots of other nice moments like "D&D", "Scramble", "Out Front", and "Che Low".

Dizzy GillespieAn Electrifying Evening With The Dizzy Gillespie Quintet ... LP
Verve, 1961. Near Mint- ... $11.99
While actually not as electrifying as some of Dizzy's other albums from the time, this one's still pretty darn great, and features his great group with Leo Wright on alto and Lalo Schfrin on piano. The band grooves with a subtly Latinish vibe, and the tracks are nice and long long long. Titles include "Kush", one of Dizzy's best Latin numbers, plus "The Mooch" and "Night In Tunisia".

Dizzy GillespieGillespiana ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good ... $4.99
A great burner from Diz – and one that features a large group, long tracks, and some stellar early work from Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was in Diz's group at the time, playing piano and contributing fantastic Latin-tinged arrangements that gave the band a whole new life. Other players on this session include Candido, Leo Wright, Julius Watkins, and Willie Rodriguez – and the tracks include "Africana", "Blues", and "Panamerica". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieIt's My Way ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
A weird batch of groovy tracks from Diz – more of a pop soul jazz instrumental set than a straight jazz one, recorded in 1969 with arrangements by Jimmy Mundy, who conducts a group with Paul Griffin, Billy Butler, and Jerome Richardson. As usual, Dizzy rises to any occasion – and brings out some great work for the album, grooving in a number of different modes as the moods of the tracks change with the backing colors of the band. Titles include a medley of "Aquarius" and "Let The Sun Shine In", plus "Exotica", "Besame Mucho", "Magic Tree", "This Girl's In Love With You", and "Galveston". Not all great – but with some really nice moments! LP, Vinyl record album

Bob GluckMiles Davis Lost Quintet And Other Revolutionary Ensembles (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Chicago, 2016. New Copy ... $28.99 37.50
A deep look at the Lost Quintet of Miles Davis – a group who earned that name because they never recorded a full studio album, yet made some very important waves with their live work at the end of the 60s! The lineup featured key electric Miles musicians Chick Corea on keyboards, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all working with a very new, different rhythmic impulse – which offered new freedom to the solos of Miles and Wayne Shorter! The growth, performances, and legacy of this group is followed in great detail by Bob Gluck – who also wrote a large volume on the Mwandishi band of Herbie Hancock – and the book goes on to look at the growth of related groups Circle and Revolutionary Ensemble too. Gluck drew on a huge amount of research for the book – so much so that it includes almost 100 additional pages of notes, as well as appendix sections and a very detailed index. Book

Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion IncRitual (with download) ... LP
Omega/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Fierce funky grooves from the legendary Nico Gomez – a set cooked up in Europe, but heavy with influences from the other side of the Atlantic – from Havana all the way up to New York! There's definitely a Latin groove to the record – one that's similar to other Gomez productions – but there's also lots of heavy funk at the bottom – with basslines that drive most numbers along boldly, really raw percussion played with a nice sense of spontaneity, and these super-tight keyboards and guitars that you might find in American funk! The mix of modes is very much in the best spirit of contemporary groups like Chakachas or Lafayette Afro Rock Band – and titles include "Caballo Negro", "Lupita", "Baila Chibiquiban", "Pa! Pa! Pa! Pa!", "One Note Samba", "Cuba Libre", and "El Condor Pasa". LP, Vinyl record album

Dusko GoykovichLatin Haze ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
The mighty Dusko Goykovich lives again – in a record that may well be one of the best we've heard in many years from the legendary trumpeter! Make no mistake, we love Dusko in all of his many settings – but there's a special sort of magic here that takes us back to the style and charm we loved in Goykovich's first great recordings of the 60s – especially some of his performances with the legendary Clarke Boland Big Band! As with those sides, this one features a larger ensemble – with Big Band RTS – with Goykovich providing most of the solos, and also the full set of songs and arrangements for the record too – which means that the larger ensemble plays in a manner that's very much in keeping with Dusko's legacy. There's a number of Latin currents in the rhythms – which again echo some of Dusko's MPS material – and titles include "Latin Haze", "Sambalero", "In The Sign Of Libra", "Inga", "Quo Vadis Samba", and "Danca Comigo".

John GraasInternational Premiere In Jazz ... CD
Andex/VSOP, 1956/1958. Used ... $3.99
One of the most ambitious sessions ever recorded by LA jazzman John Graas – and most of his records are already pretty high concept! The album presents 2 jazz symphonies scored by Graas in the mid 50s – one performed by an LA group that includes Art Pepper, Jack Sheldon, Bob Enelvodsen, and Bill Perkins; the other by a German ensemble that includes Rolf Kuhn, Horst Jankowski, and Peter Witte – all guest soloists on the session from the Erwin Lehn band. And while the work is serious, with higher art overtones, Graas also manages to use the players to best effect – and almost gets a jazz soundtrack feel out of the material, especially on the LA numbers. Titles include 3 movements of "Jazz Chaconne No 1" and 4 of "Jazz Symphony No 1". CD also features 4 alternate takes! CD
