Hakon KornstadTenor Battle ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
The title's a bit misleading – as the record's hardly the sort of tenor battle you might have heard from Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon back in the day – and instead, the title's a bit of a pun, in that Hakon Kornstad plays both tenor sax, and sings in a tenor voice too! The record opens up in this really magical flow that begins with the saxophone sound of Hakon Kornstad, and blends in sublime sounds on instruments that include harmonium, cimbalon, harpsichord, and percussion – plus some excellent work from bassist Per Zanussi, who really grounds the whole thing. The record's easily one of the most compelling we've heard from Kornstad so far – that's saying a lot, given the strength of his other albums – and Hakon's got this new level of sensitivity that really comes through in the way he approaches his sound – not just his core performance on tenor, but also his use of a bit of flute, and process of looping live with the instrumentation too. Many of the compositions are from operatic sources – part of Kornstad's growing fascination with the format – and Hakon also sings a bit, in this stunning tenor voice that's really wonderful – completely captivating, especially amongst this instrumentation – and never forced or hokey at all. We'd hardly believe that such blend could come off so well – but it does, and with uniquely beautiful results – on titles that include "Je Crois Entendre Encore", "Song Of India", "En Fermant Les Yeux", "Morgen", and "Marechiare".

Gene Krupa & Buddy RichDrum Battle At JATP ... CD
Verve, 1952. Used ... $1.99
A pretty darn great album – with a wonderful mix of JATP swing and strong-handed drumming by the leaders. The material was recorded at a Jazz At The Philharmonic show at Carnegie Hall in 1952, and although the main focus appears to be Krupa and Rich's drum work, there's actually some fantastic sax playing on the album – from both the alto of Willie Smith and the tenor of Flip Phillips, both of whom are at the height of their powers in this relaxed setting, working amazingly well around the bombastic drum pounding of Krupa and Rich. Tracks are long, and titles include "Idaho", "Flying Home", "Drum Boogie", "Drum Battle", and "Perdido". CD

Ennio Morricone & Gillo PontecorvoLa Battagli Di Algeri (aka Battle Of Algiers) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy ... $22.99
A relatively dramatic score from Ennio Morricone– as you might guess from the military title! Some of the tunes here have a very strong military feel, but others move into surprisingly sweeter territory – that more mainstream side of Morricone's sound, but still pretty great – with full strings swelling up in lush sounds that are very compelling. There's also some subtly spooky sounds on a few of the numbers – the odd instrumental moments that Morricone could sneak in nicely on a score like this – conducted perfectly by orchestra director Bruno Nicolai. Titles include "Theme Of Ali", "Tortures", "Clandestine Marriage", "Battle Of Algiers March", "Sorrow In The Casbah", and "Algiers November 1 1954". CD

Buddy Rich & Gene KrupaBurnin Beat/Original Drum Battle ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1952/1962. New Copy ... $5.99
Heavy drums from this mighty pair – presented together on two classic albums! Burnin Beat is a drum-heavy spectacular that returns Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich to their big band roots – thanks to some hard-swinging arrangements from George Williams! The tracks are a bit shorter and done with a larger group than on some of the other Rich or Krupa sides for Verve – but there actually seems to be even more drum pyrotechnics here, possibly because the players' efforts are compressed into such a tight space! Production is a bit odd – with the drums so high in the mix that they sometimes come across with more treble than bass – but that really highlights some of the most inventive moments on the top of the kit as well. Titles include "Duet", "Perdido", "Evolution", "Night Train", and "Hawaiian War Chant". Original Drum Battle is a pretty darn great album – with a wonderful mix of JATP swing and strong-handed drumming by the leaders. The material was recorded at a Jazz At The Philharmonic show at Carnegie Hall in 1952, and although the main focus appears to be Krupa and Rich's drum work, there's actually some fantastic sax playing on the album – from both the alto of Willie Smith and the tenor of Flip Phillips, both of whom are at the height of their powers in this relaxed setting, working amazingly well around the bombastic drum pounding of Krupa and Rich.

John SwensonNew Atlantis – Musicians Battle For The Survival Of New Orleans (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $6.99 27.95
The New Orleans music scene has certainly found a way to thrive and survive in the wake of Katrina – but it hasn't been without years of struggle, as author John Swenson portrays in this deeply-written book! The struggles aren't just water or storm-related – as Swenson details the shifting Crescent City landscape of the past decade or so – the larger shifts in the social and tourist scene, and the more subtle ones that continue to threaten the city – including long-ignored ecological issues that could put New Orleans in the same place as before. Chapters are relatively short, but in a good way that really draws focus on individual artists and aspects of the scene – and the hardcover book is 284 pages, with some black and white images. Book

VariousBattle Of Hastings Street – Raw Detroit Blues & R&B From Joe's Record Shop 1949 to 1954 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Mid 50s. New Copy ... About July 1, 2016
Very rootsy blues from the Motor City scene of the postwar years – work that almost sounds more Delta than Detroit – thanks to the primitive recording setting in the back of Joe's Record Shop! The work here is a really unique representation of blues in a northern setting at the time – and although some of the tunes have styles that might have been at home on Chess Records, most of them are looser and earthier. About half the material was issued on King/DeLuxe Records back in the day, but a good number of titles here are previously unissued too – and as with all Ace releases, there's loads of great notes, photos, and historical information on the music! Titles include "Up Boy" by Johnny Wright, "Vacation Blues" by Johnny Howard, "Soft Pillow" by Joe Weaver & His Blue Notes, "Hello Miss Jessie Lee" by Eddie Burns, "Eva Lee" by James Walton, "Time For My Lovin To Be Done" by Eddie Kirkland, "New York Central" by Robert Richard, "I Was In St Louis" by Johnny Wright, and "Wigwam Woman" by Robert Richard.

Roy BrownGood Rocking Tonight – The Best Of Roy Brown ... CD
King/Rhino, Early 50s. Used ... $9.99
Although Roy Brown had a slightly softer edge than some of his King R&B contemporaries – he could definitely rock and wail when he wanted to, as you'll hear on this CD! The folks at Rhino have done a good job of digging through Roy's work at King, pulling together 18 tracks that have a fierce Wynonnie Harris-ish sound to them – no surprise, as King often had Brown and Harris splitting "Battle Of The Blues" albums together! Tracks include "Black Diamond", "Mighty Might Man", "Rockin At Midnight", "Cadillac Baby", "Hard Luck Blues", "Bar Room Blues", "Big Town", "Gal From Kokomo", "Beautician Blues", and the original version of "Good Rockin Tonight", which is a lot rawer than you'd expect!

Al Cohn & Shorty RogersEast Coast – West Coast Scene ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1954. Used ... $9.99
A classic session in the tried and true marketing style of "East Coast vs West Coast" jazz, with one side of tracks by a group led by Al Cohn, and featuring Gene Quill, Hal McKusick, and Joe Newman. The other side's got Shorty Rogers representin' on the West Coast, with Jimmy Giuffre, Zoot Sims, Bud Shank, and Shelly Manne. The album's a nice batch of tracks, in the tightly arranged style that characterizes many of these mid-50's RCA jazz sessions. However, since Cohn's measured playing could never really be taken for New York Hot, and since his longtime partner Zoot Sims is part of Rogers' West Coast group, it's hard to say that these sides are really any sort of true battle between the coasts. Instead, though, the tracks are nice and long, with more room for solos than usual, and titles that include "Loki", "Cool Sunshine", and "Inside Out". CD

Floyd CramerSuper Country Hits/Young & The Restless ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of piano instrumental albums from Nashville's legendary Floyd Cramer! First up is Super Country Hits – a set that has Floyd tippling the ivories through 70s instrumental updates of older country hits – done with a sweet RCA studio vibe, and that floating, suspended style of recording that always made Cramer's piano sound so great! Titles include "Is Anybody Goin To San Antoine", "Detroit City", "Battle Of New Orleans", "Lonely Street", "Sugarfoot Rag", and "It's A Sin". The Young & The Restless is an album that's perfect for the piano style of Floyd Cramer – a set that's maybe more 70s easy instrumental than some of his previous albums – but in a mighty nice way! Floyd's piano has this haunting, spacious quality on the title cut – a perfect choice for his talents – and other cuts have the pianist working on both acoustic and Fender Rhodes, on titles that include "Behind Close Doors", "Top Of The World", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Rockin On", "Theme From A Dream", and "The Young & The Restless".

Duke Ellington & Count BasieFirst Time – The Count Meets The Duke ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Silva also plays flugelhorn, which seems to be an especially nice fit for the energy of Fulco Ottevanger on piano, Lieven Van Pee on bass, and Simon Segers on drums – and the lineup claims to be working here with inspiration from the trout – both the fish, and the famous Schubert quintet – although the music has a very individual quality of its own. Titles include "Slow Garnish", "Aquarium Benefits", "Under Swirling Waters", and "Battle With Fishself". CD

✨✧ Grant GreenFinal Comedown - Original Soundtrack ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Very Good+ (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent lost funky soundtrack on Blue Note – their only one for years, and Grant Green's entry into the blacksploitation genre! The whole thing bristles with the kind of chunky, thumping percussive feel as the best funky soundtracks of the era – informed by the work of Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes, but with the deeper jazz feel that Green brings from his other Blue Note sides of the time! Some cuts are quite funky, particularly the opener, "Past, Present, and Future" with it's crisp trap, chicken scratch guitar and bongo driven beat. Others have more of a stripped-down dope instrumental feel – there's some sweet funky flute work on "Fathers Lament", and even a slight bossa groove creeps into the title track! The whole album's very nice, and it's very different than any of Grant Green's other work! Other titles include "Afro Party", Luana's Theme", "Slight Fear And Terror", and "Battle Scene".

A unique western score by Maurice Jarre, written for this late 60s Pancho Villa thriller that starred Robert Mitchum, Charles Bronson, and Yul Brynner – who's clearly wearing hair for the film! Jarre's score interweaves more traditional scoring with bits of western and Mexican themes – often done in lietmotif mode, with less of the specifically western styles used by Italian composers of the period.

A wonderful meeting of two of the biggest 50s talents on the drums – and a session that's great not only for the expected firey percussion, but also for the horn work by other members on the set! Given the "drum battle" style of the record, the tracks are long and very open – done in a studio mode that recalls some of the Krupa/Rich meetings at JATP, and like the JATP sides, featuring plenty of space for players to take longer solos. Dizzy Gillespie, Illinois Jacquet, Flip Phillips, and Roy Eldridge get in some nice licks on the set – and other players include Oscar Peterson, Herb Ellis, and Ray Brown. Titles include "Gene's Blues", "Bernie's Tune", "Buddy's Blues", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album

Hard rock perfected!

There's a darkness here – and a sense of magick too – an eerie new energy that still has all the balls-out rock power of before, but which has the group moving into this heady territory that's really all their own. Every song is a classic – and tracks include "Black Dog", "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "When The Levee Breaks", "Going To California", "Four Sticks", and "Battle Of Evermore".

Funky Technician is mysteriously slept on in too many discussions of the best hip hop of the era, but it's still way up there if you ask us.

The monthly series anthologizes the stories in a way that's even truer to Piskor's comic book influences than the graphic novel collections. Amazing!

The title cut is a prime relic of the Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J battles back in the day, and that along with "Wild Wild West" are bonafide classic cuts – but the a lot of the lesser remembered tracks here are ultimately just as nice. Even though it's only his second album, Moe was a block rockin' veteren by this point, with an MC pedigree stretching back to Treacherous Three, and is probably his sharpest point. Other tracks include "Suckers", "Way Way Back", "No Respect", "Don't Dance", "I'm A Player" and "Get Paid". LP, Vinyl record album

Don Pullen & Sam RiversCapricorn Rising ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A richly dynamic set from pianist Don Pullen, and one of his farthest-out sessions from the mid 70s – especially considering he had just finished a tenure as Mingus' piano player not long before this set was recorded! The "outness" of the date is probably due in part to reedman Sam Rivers, who brings a great deal of energy to the set, and wrote half of the numbers the group performs (the other half are from Pullen) – and the players work here in a quartet that features bassist Alex Blake and drummer Bobby Battles. The set's got a lot of the freewheeling energy that Rivers was hitting in the 70s – and titles include "Capricorn Rising", "Fall Out", "Joycie Girl". and "Break Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Described as "Soul Train with a mosh pit" and "Mr. Rogers Goes To Studio 54," the show, hosted by the lovely Miss Mia and her smart mouthed puppet pal Ratso, has been gaining a national reputation as videos circulate throughout the underground. Now you can be a Chic-A-Go-Go Dancer in the privacy of your own home with "Chic-A-Go-Go - The Soundtrack!" The collection of R&B, Hip Hop, Garage, punk and pop songs performed on the show includes unreleased, live and rare tracks from Kelly Hogan, Quintron, The Goblins, Davie Allan and the Arrows, Jan Terri, Bobby Conn, Monotrona, M.O.T.O., Pansy Division, Otha Turner, Pedro "Funkadelic" Bell, Alan Gillett, Cynthia Plastercaster,, J.

✨✧ Beastie BoysHot Sauce Committee Part 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Grand Royal/Capitol, 2011. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hip hop lifers and genre-defiant pop art blenders The Beastie Boys deliver the Hot Sauce – either their 8th or 9th album in 25 years, depending on how you count the Mix Up instrumentals set – and it sounds to us like a return to the good times hip hop funk style-hopping that the Boys flaunted so brilliantly in the period from Check Your Head to Hello Nasty! Hot Sauce was initially solicited as Part 1 to be followed by a Part 2, but the album was put on hold while Yauch battled cancer, which gave the Beasties plenty of time to finess the material and release it as the definitive project we have here. It's solid stuff and a Beastie Boys album through-and-through – and they're as immune to trends as ever. Guests include Nas, Santigold and Switch. Tracks include "Make Some Noise", "Nonstop Disco Powerpack", "Too Many Rappers (New Reactionaries Version)" with Nas, "Lee Majors Comes Again", "Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win" feat Santigold, "Tadlock's Glasses", "The Lisa Lisa/Full Force Routine", "Here's A Little Something For Ya" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(White vinyl pressing, includes the printed inner sleeves and bonus 7"!)
