Bernard HerrmannBattle Of Neretva (Southern Cross) ... CD
Entracte/Southern Cross, 1970/1975. Used ... $14.99
A dramatic score by Herrmann – written for this 1970 film about a key battle in WWII. Herrmann directs the London Philharmonic, and the whole thing's very action-packed – less edgey than some of Bernard's more famous scores, but strongly voiced nonetheless. Titles include "Prelude", "The Retreat", "Chetnik's March", "Separation", "Farewell", "Death Of Danica", and "Turning Point". CD

✨✧ TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands (with bonus tracks) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos – all in a way that offers up a brilliant commentary on rock music in the late 60s! The effortlessness with which the group approaches the songs is fantastic – each number could have been a hit for the individual groups, were they real. One of our favorite tracks is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts – which has an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp" – and other titles include "Surfer Dan", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Elenore", "You Showed Me", "Food", and "Chicken Little Was Right". 2CD version features 11 more bonus tracks – other songs from the project, as well as a radio spot – with titles that include "Can't You Hear The Cows", "The Owl", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Umbassa The Dragon", and "To See The Sun".

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 ... $10.99 18.99
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.

✨✧ Ronnie Scott with Kenny Graham's Afro-CubistsBattle Royale – Studio Recordings Volume 2 ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), 1951/1952. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime early work from the legendary Ronnie Scott – small group numbers that show him starting out the 50s as a hell of a bopper, and a handful of tracks with a Latin vibe – cut with Kenny Graham's Afro-Cubists! Those cuts begin the set, and they're wonderful – material that often has Scott out front, soloing on tenor alongside Graham – with Latin jazz backings, in a way that's similar to the best cubop material that Verve was doing at the time! The remaining part of the record features Scott leading two different small groups – with players who include Dill Jones on piano, Harry Klein on baritone, and Tony Crombie on drums. Titles include "Not So Fast", "Fast", "Twin Beds", "Avalon", "Scott's Expedition", "Nemo", "Troubled Air", "Eureka", and "Seven Eleven". CD

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man! ... LP
Battle, 1962. Very Good- ... $13.99
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged Latin jazz version that pushed the tune into a whole new audience, and which was one of the first big groovers of its type in the pre-Latin Soul years! The group here is totally great – with players that include funky flautist Mauricio Smith, baritone genius Pat Patrick, and the always-great Bobby Capers – all key players who illustrate Santamaria's genius for picking horn players. Titles include "Watermelon Man", "Yeh Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It", "Sauvito", "Cut That Cane", and "Bayou Roots". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PioneersBest Of The Pioneers ... CD
Trojan, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Classic work from one of the coolest Jamaican trios at the end of the 60s – a group who certainly take their harmonic inspiration from American soul – but also fuse their vocals nicely onto rocksteady and early reggae rhythms! The Pioneers are certainly well-named – as their approach really helped open the door for countless acts to come – yet few folks did it as well as these guys – able to be sweet one minute, raw the next – and always hitting the right kind of groove. The set features a whopping 40 tracks from their years at Trojan Records – and titles include "The Battle Of The Giants", "Starvation", "Reggae Fever", "Driven Back", "Black Bud", "Personality", "You Don't Know Like I Know", "Storybook Children", "Long Shot Kick De Bucket", "Time Hard", "Samfie Man", "Riot In A Notting Hill", and "At The Discotheque".

Fred Anderson21st Century Chase – 80th Birthday Bash Live At The Velvet Lounge ... CD
Delmark, 2009. Used ... $9.99
Fred Anderson celebrates his birthday in the company of another avant tenor talent – reedman Kidd Jordan, who joins Anderson on the album's extended title improvisation – which is referred to as an update of the Dexter Gordon/Wardell Gray "Chase" battle of the late 40s! As you'd expect from Anderson, the sound here is much more outside – but definitely held to a strong legacy of tenor expression, especially the Chicago school from which Fred sprang. The rest of the group features Jeff Parker on guitar, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Chad Taylor on drums – an in addition to the 50 minute "21st Century Chase", the album also features the extended "Ode To Alvin Fielder".

Dave Burrell/Steve SwellTurning Point ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2014. Used ... $11.99
One of the greatest recordings we've heard from pianist Dave Burrell in recent years – a series of stunning duets with trombonist Steve Swell! Like some of Burrell's wonderful work from decades back, the style is loose and somewhat free, but also has a sense of rhythm and forward-moving action – some vague modal impulse that has Dave spinning out these waves of pianistic sound that are instantly compelling – while Swell blows over the top in styles that range from tuneful and melodic, to much more free and bracing. All titles are Burrell originals, and tracks include "Fancy Trade Nightmare", "Battle At Vicksburg", "Battle At Gettysburg", "Church Picnic Celebration", and "One Nation". CD

✨✧ Duke Ellington & Count BasieFirst Time – The Count Meets The Duke ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

Coleman HawkinsHawkins Alive At The Village Gate (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1962. Used ... $6.99
Long, lean, and later work by Coleman Hawkins – recorded in a beautifully stripped-down and free setting at the Village Gate! The tracks are all pushing the 10 minute mark – and feature Hawk soloing in that open, exploratory way he was using during the time – a mix of older traditions and slight moments of modernism – carried off with gentle accompaniment from a trio led by Tommy Flanagan on piano. The tenor dominates – and dominates beautifully – and titles include "All The Things You Are", "Mack The Knife", "Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho" and "Talk Of The Town". 2 additional tracks on this Japanese CD edition: "Bean And The Boys" and "If I Had You".

Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin IV ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! 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".

Groove Merchant, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $5.99
Sweet funky blues from the team of Junior Parker and Jimmy McGriff – coming together here in a way that's even groovier than some of their previous work! Junior's got a sweet approach to the lyrics that grooves nicely with Jimmy's Hammond – and the set's got some full and soulful arrangements by Horace Ott that really tighten things up nicely – getting past any of the blues cliches that might ruin things, and instead going for that lean groove that McGriff was really hitting at the end of the 60s! There's more of a soul vibe than a blues one going on most of the time – and titles include "Workin", "Inner Light", "Losing Battle", "Drownin On Dry Land", and "It Ain't What'cha Got".

Oscar PettifordNew York City 1955 to 1958 ... CD
Uptown, Mid 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... $20.99 24.99
An insane amount of rare material from legendary bassist Oscar Pettiford – not only one of the most forward-thinking musicians on his instrument during the postwar years, but also an extremely inventive leader, who found ways of merging bop modernism with a large group format! The recordings here are all well-recorded, originally done for radio in New York – and the 2CD set features a whopping 48 tracks in all, from seven different performances by Pettiford, mostly at Birdland – with an incredible lineup of players throughout, musicians who include Donald Byrd, Johnny Coles, and Art Farmer on trumpets; Jimmy Cleveland and Eddie Bert on trombones; Sahib Shihab on alto and baritone; Gigi Gryce and Gene Quill on alto; Hank Jones, Dick Katz, and Hod O'Brien on piano; and Jerome Richardson and JR Monterose on tenor. The arrangements are wonderful – by Pettiford, Lucky Thompson, Gigi Gryce, and Benny Golson – and the set features performances by a nonet, sextet, and larger band. Some songs are performed a few different times, by different lineups – and titles include Kamman's A Comin", "Smoke Signal", "Two French Fries", "The Gentle Art Of Love", "I Remember Clifford", "Jack The Bear", "Battle Axe", "Stablemates", "45 Degree Angle", and "The Pendulum At Falcon's Lair".

Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Bold sounds from this hip quartet of American players – working here on an early session for the Black Saint label, in a recording that's got a really great sense of focus! The album's dominated by the two-part track "Warriors Dance" – a number that builds beautifully on rhythms from the bass of Fred Hopkins and drums of Bobby Battle, punctuated by sharper piano from Don Pullman and wild tenor sounds from Chico Freeman – soulfully crafted, but also with some of the playful aspects you'd find in 70s work from the AACM. The tune shifts its shape a lot over the course of its 30-plus minutes – and the album's completed by the wonderful "Land Of The Pharoahs" – a leaping number with a great spiritual avant energy!

We never thought we'd hear Maysa singing a Pat Benatar song – but as with most of Maysa's music, the results come across surprisingly well! The album's heavy on covers – and also includes songs first made famous by The Isley Brothers, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Jerry Butler, and others – but all done in that warmly glowing sound that's made Maysa so great from her years with Incognito onward – with a rich legacy in quality soul! As with other recent albums from the singer, the production here is nicely understated – maturing with Maysa's talents, and another great showcase for the skills of Chris "Big Dog" Davis. Titles include "Love Is A Battlefield", "Can We Talk", "Inseparable", "Because It's Really Love", "Inside Out", "The Things We Do For Love", "Mr Dream Merchant", and "Am I Dreaming". CD

Many numbers feature more than one singer, creating a trading of vocals that really gives the record a lot of warmth – while Day handles the production and songwriting, sometimes with help from the other artists. Titles include "No Son Of Mine", "Forgiveness", "Battlegrounds", "Stand On My Shoulders", "Who Can Tell The Heart", "It's All Divine (Boogie Back mix)", and "Speak Love".

Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsMiss Sharon Jones (DVD) ... DVD
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
The amazing story of the late Sharon Jones – a hell of a soul singer, and one who battled difficult odds to become one of the hippest, hardest, heaviest talents in our generation! Sharon's passing has left us all with a mighty wide hole in our hearts – and this documentary does a slight job in filling that space – by showing some great performance footage with The Dap-Kings, and giving us lots of behind the scenes footage as she struggles with the cancer diagnosis that eventually took her life. Given the outcome of Sharon's situation, the film – released shortly before her death – is something less than triumphant – but the mighty spirit of the singer is completely inspiring, and will stand as a legacy to us all. 95 minutes, in color. DVD

Kool Moe DeeHow Ya Like Me Now ... LP
Jive, 1987. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Kool Moe Dee's second album – a benchmark moment in mid-to-late 80s solo rap – and definitely worth a post millennium revisit! 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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve with infamous report card.)

NasIllmatic ... CD
Columbia, 1994. Used ... $4.99
The first album, with "Life's A Bitch", "One Love" and "It Ain't Hard To Tell" – what more do we need to say? How about beats by Primo, Pete Rock and Large Professor? Did this one get 5 mics from the Source? Didn't that count for something at the time? At any rate, despite the subsequent ups and downs of his career, and battles with Jay Z, amongst others, this album still stands as an all time high water mark for microphone technique and lyrical skills, with production to match. Also includes "NY State Of Mind", "The World Is Yours", "Halftime", "One Time 4 Your Mind", "Memory Lane" and "Represent". CD

75 Ark/Deltron Partners, 2000. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Kid Koala, and Dan The Automator pool their skills for this dawn of the 2000s sci-fi hip hop classic – the masterful Deltron 3030! The guest list is almost too long to get into, but Money Mark, Prince Paul, PB Wolf and Mr. Lif are all here, along with many others. One of the benchmark albums in the leftfield underground hip hop canon – and a hugely influential set that burst the doors wide open for the more creative spirits in the hip hop and even experimental pop. Tracks include "State Of The Nation", "3030", "The Fantabulous Rap Extravaganza", "Things You Can Do", "Positive Contact", "St Catherine St.", "Virus", "Mastermind", "National Movie Review", "Time Keeps On Slipping", "Turbulence (remix)", "Battlesong", "Memory Loss" and more.

✨✧ Stan Getz/Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Allen Eager/Brew MooreBrothers ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1952. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic Prestige LP that compiles earlier sides by Getz – four tunes from a 1949 session recorded under Stan Getz & His Four Brothers, with Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Allen Eager, and Brew Moore – all blowing with Getz in a real "brothers-like" sax section sound. The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place. The album's got a great Don Martin cover, and titles include "Battleground", "Five Brothers", "Four & One More", "Red Door", and "Zootcase". LP, Vinyl record album
(NYC 50th street pressing, with deep groove and RVG stamp! Vinyl is nice – and cover has some light aging, but no splits.)

✨✧ Hugh RaginRevelation ... CD
Justin Time, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty firey set from trumpeter Hugh Ragin – recorded in a mode that almost recalls the freewheeling quality of the mid 70s loft jazz years in New York! The group on the set is a quartet – with Hamid Drake on percussion, William Parker on bass, and Assif Tsahar on tenor, bass clarinet, and Musette – but it's Ragin's voice that really leads the session – blowing with a strong, proud, powerful tone that seems to capture the boldest moments of earlier players in a line that includes Don Cherry, Hannibal Peterson, and Lester Bowie. Titles include "Kamal's Gift", "Skull Hill", "Night Life", "Wormwood", "Speak To The Mountain", "Revelation", and "Battlefield". CD
(NOTE: Booklet has considerate water damage.)

Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Nicely done reissue of this classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including "Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield" – both the source of more than a few samples over the years. With nice sweet keyboards by Willie Tee, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you'll be hard pressed to beat! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wild TchoupitoulasWild Tchoupitoulas ... CD
Antilles/Island, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the weird Meters-related New Orleans parade bands from the 70s – similar to the group The Wild Magnolias, but with a sound that's more in a New Orleans mode than a 70s funk one. The Meters play on the record, and the group sings most of the vocals as well – and production is by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn, with that 70s New Orleans choppy style that was making them both buckets of money at the time! Tracks include "Brother John", "Indian Red", "Hey Hey", "Hey Mama", "Meet De Boys On The Battlefront", and a version of "Hey Pocky Way". CD

✨✧ Eric EtheridgeBreach Of Peace – Portraits of The 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders (hardcover) ... Book
Atlas, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very striking portrait of the price of freedom – a book that features police mug shots of Freedom Riders who helped break down boundaries during the key years of Civil Rights – folks whose sacrifice and struggles opened the door to freedoms we enjoy today ! The oversize book is way more than just photos, though – as it offers up the original images from when the subjects were arrested for peaceful protest – along with details on their life at the time, plus the paths they've taken since the 60s – often with a contemporary photograph in juxtaposition. Together, these elements tell a fascinating history – of fighters who've continued to fight, as new battles are waged in defense of these hard-won freedoms. Most photos are black and white – and the oversized book is hardcover, and 240 pages. Book
