Prestige, 1963. Very Good ... $8.99
Griff and Lock are playing head to head here – right in their classic "tuff tenors" mode, although not recorded Live at Mintons! Rhythm is by Norman Simmons, Vic Sproles, and Ben Riley – and the album's actually a bit gutsier and more freewheeling than some of their earlier sets, the ones with a bit more Monk work. Titles include "What's Happening?", "63rd Street Theme", "Pull My Coat", and "Hey Jim!". LP, Vinyl record album

Keef Hartley BandBattle Of North West Six ... LP
Deram, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $79.99
A tremendous set from one of the best – and most under-recognized – groups of the British jazz rock scene at the end of the 60s! The group have an approach that mixes heavy blues-influenced jamming with some of the lighter, more lyrical touches that were showing up at the time – in a way that gives them a firmly grounded sound at one level, but also a slightly more sophisticated, contemplative approach – making the group almost a UK equivalent to the sound of the Steve Miller Band at the time. The jazzier tracks on the album feature work by some great straight British players – including Harry Beckett and Ray Warleigh – and the album's also got a few nice slightly funky cuts that are known for their breaks! Tracks include "The Dansette Kid", "Hickory", "Not Foolish, Not Wise", "Poor Mabel", "Believe In Me", "Don't Give Up", "Hickory", and "Tadpole". LP, Vinyl record album

Bernard HerrmannBattle Of Neretva ... LP
Entracte, 1970/1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Ennio Morricone & Gillo PontecorvoBattle Of Algiers ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

John SwensonNew Atlantis – Musicians Battle For The Survival Of New Orleans (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $2.99 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 ... $11.99 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.

White Whale, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A totally excellent album by The Turtles! We always loved this group in their normal mode, but this is a super-cool record that's 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. The big cut on here is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts, and with 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"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Buddy Rich & Gene KrupaBurnin Beat/Original Drum Battle ... CD
Verve (Germany), 1952/1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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. Tracks are long, and titles include "Idaho", "Flying Home", "Drum Boogie", "Drum Battle", and "Perdido". CD

Antibalas Afrobeat OrchestraLiberation Afrobeat Volume 1 (original version) ... CD
Afrosound, 2000. Used ... $9.99
Amazing funk from this new Afro Beat combo! Forget that they're a bunch of young guys from New York – because the sound of this one is pure 70s Africa, with hard heavy drum work, super-tight horn riffing, spiralling keyboard lines, and some excellent guitar! You probably also know the work of the group from the Daktaris CD on Desco – and like that one, this album sounds like it's got roots that are 30 years old, and a sound that's actually more perfect and more satisfying than some of the best Afro-Funk of the 70s. Every track is impeccable – and if this were an original album from the 70s, we'd be selling it for hundreds of dollars! Titles include "Si Se Puede", "Battle Of The Species", "NESTA", and "Dirt & Blood". CD

An incredibly wonderful record from The Art of Noise – their first full LP, following the ep Into Battle With – and a much more open-ended array of beats, sounds, and that wonderful chunky Trevor Horn production! The album's got versions of some of the older singles – like "Beat Box (Diversion One)" and "Close To The Edit" – but it's more packaged around airier numbers, like the sublime "Moments In Love", the slow chugging churning funk track that's forever been a favorite of ours! Other tunes include "How To Kill", "Who's Afraid", "Snapshot", and "A Time For Fear". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy ButlerRight Tracks – The Complete Okeh Recordings 1963 to 1966 ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The complete Okeh label recordings of Billy Butler – Jerry Butler's lesser-known brother, but an even more grooving artist on the Chicago soul scene of the 60s! Billy's work at Okeh is easily some of the best of the all-great imprint – tracks that step, slide, and groove along in a flurry of tight-edged Chi-soul rhythms – nearly all of which are produced by the legendary Carl Davis, with arrangements from Johnny Pate and Riley Hampton! Billy's in the lead on vocals, but nearly all numbers have a strong harmony soul component too – support from The Four Enchanters or Chanters – in a mode that echoes The Impressions' style of the time somewhat, but which also carries more of the Butler-family emotive quality, thanks to the stronger lead. This is the first time all this material has ever been brought together so well – and the package features great notes and a number of previously unissued titles as well – including some rare versions and instrumentals that are sure to get some play from Northern Soul listeners. Titles include "Found True Love", "Lady Love", "Gotta Get Away", "Can't Live Without Her", "Right Track", "Boston Monkey", "Does It Matter", "Fighting A Losing Battle", "To Be Or Not To Be", "Singing The Blues", and "You're Gonna Be Sorry".

Floyd CramerSuper Country Hits/Young & The Restless ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

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".

The history of women's rights in the 20th Century – presented here in a beautiful art book format that's filled with hundreds of stunning images throughout! The volume traces the evolution of different strands of struggle and victory in the past 100 years – and uses an amazing array of visual material that came from these movements – posters, flyers, magazines, billboards, photos, propaganda, and lots lots more – all laid out in full color throughout, and supported with a huge amount of writing as well.

Akira SakataTale Of The Heike (includes bonus download) ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Mindblowing sounds from legendary reedman Akira Sakata – working here in a setting that's mostly solo, but which also includes some group material from a DVD of the performance too! The core tracks have Sakata blowing amazingly on alto, clarinet, and bass clarinet – these long, thoughtful solos that really mark his contribution to improvised music over the years – almost poetic, even though they're very freewheeling – and marked at points by these raspy, rumbling vocal recitations by Akira – with a tone that's almost as mezmerizing and unique as his work on reed instruments! Solo titles include "Gion Shoja", "The Death Of Kiso", "The Matter Of The Six Paths", "The Assault From The Cliff", "The Death Of Atsumori", and "Battle Of Dan No Ura". Then, the set also includes some group numbers, recorded live – with Jim O'Rourke on guitar, Tatsuhisha Yamamoto on drums and percussion, Chizuru Ishii on percussion and taiko, and Yumiko Tanaka on shamisen – on titles that include "See Chanty Of Ondo", "The Chapter Of The Battle", and "The Death Of Kiso".

The pairing of two great, and individual voices on the tenor is wonderful – and the duo have this way of laying into the tunes that takes us back to famous tenor teams like Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Johnny Griffin, or Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt! Unlike the latter, there's no sense of "battle" – just mutual respect and strong encouragement – at a level that has Nisse sounding better than he has in years, and Jonas reminding us that he's a great player in a more traditional jazz setting. Almost all tracks are Sandstrong originals – and titles include "Mr Music", "For Lucky", "Hankenstein", "Calypso Bulbosa", and "Clouds". CD

The tracks are all long, and played with the sort of feel you'd hear if you caught these guys live at some small southside club – and the solos also show the kind of inventiveness and imagination you'd catch in that sort of setting – backed by a swinging rhythm combo that features Hank Jones on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include a version of "Perdido" that's nearly 13 minutes long – plus "Stardust", "Sposin", "Salt & Pepper", and "Theme From Lord Of The Flies". Also features the full bonus album – Now! CD

Possibly the best album ever from vocalist Martha Velez – a female singer from the 70s, and one with an approach that was equal parts rock and soul! There's a nice punch to most of these tracks – a feel that's balanced well between familiar modes, and often supported with some great rhythms too – strong keyboards and drum parts that give the tunes a bit more kick than you might expect, and which almost push the record into the territory of Aussie soul singer Renee Geyer. The cut "Jive Elephant" begins with a great break on the intro – and other tracks include "Superficial Lover", "Last Battle On Earth", "Aggravation", "Revelation", and a version of "Mocking Bird".

Really wonderful work from the legendary Tony Williams – a set that has the drummer hitting a whole new sound at the start of the 90s – a groove that's rich and soulful, yet still every bit as sharp as before! The set's straight ahead, and graced with some very youthful energy by a new-generation lineup that includes Wallace Roney on trumpet, Bill Pierce on tenor and soprano sax, Mulgrew Miller on piano, and Robert Hurst on bass – all players who bristle with excitement from the very first notes, expressing a sense of confidence and vision of a new jazz generation that no longer has to battle between its inside and outside impulses. Williams' drumming is superb, and nicely understated at many points – and titles include "Native Heart", "City Of Lights", "Extreme Measures", "Liberty", and "Two Worlds". CD

✨✧ Don Pullen & Sam RiversCapricorn Rising ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Used ... $6.99
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". CD

Polydor, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

VariousGet On Board Little Children – The Modern Gospel Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The Modern Records label is best known for a huge run of R&B classics in the postwar years – but during the same stretch, the company also recorded some great gospel material too – tracks that are lesser-known than their secular music, but every bit as soulful overall! The cuts here are often pretty stripped-down and spare – with less of the larger arrangements that Modern was bringing to its jump blues and solo singers – and instead more of a focus on the incredible vocal interplay between the singers in the group – many of whom were forging out the kind of dynamics that would later break big in the world of doo wop, but which really had their start in spiritual sounds like this. The package brings together 28 rare tracks from the vaults of Modern/RPM – some never issued before, and all with really wonderful sound – in the best Ace Records tradition. Titles include "In My Savior's Care" by Four Star Quartet, "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" by Smith Jubilee Singers, "Satisfied" by Harmonizers, "Go Devil Go" by Madam Ira Mae Littlejohn, "Climbing Jacob's Ladder" by Echoes Of Zion, "The Sun Will Never Go Down" by Swanee River Quartet, "On My Way (parts 1 & 2)" by Rev CC Chapman, "I Wanna See Jesus" by Madam Ira Mae Littlejohn, "Get On Board Little Children" by James Earle Hines & His Goodwill Singers, "I Took My Master's Hand" by Echoes Of Zion, "On The Battlefield For The Lord" by Swanee River Qurtet, and "Steal Away To Jesus" by Four Star Quartet.

75 Ark/Deltron Partners, 2000. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... 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!

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Stan Getz/Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Allen Eager/Brew MooreBrothers ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1952. Used ... 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
