✨✧ Cedar WaltonEastern Rebellion 4 ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
An expanded version of the quartet you'd usually expect to hear in this classic Eastern Rebellion series – and a group that really makes all the best of all their added elements! In addition to Cedar Walton's amazing work on piano, the set also features Curtis Fuller on trombone, Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet, Bob Berg on tenor, David Williams on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – the last three of whom are familiar Rebellion partners, but who get some new power in the lead from the presence of Fuller and Armenteros! Chocolate's horn seems to lead the group into some Latin jazz modes – which really open up Billy Higgins' work on the kit in a great way – and Walton responds with a strongly rhythmic version of his lyrical mode. Titles include "Close Enough For Love", "Manteca", "Groundwork", "St Thomas", and "I Am Not So Sure". CD

Jane WeaverSilver Globe ... CD
Bird (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $9.99
Just one lady and her keyboards – all coming together in a really cosmic sound! Jane Weaver plays some great instruments here – Moog, Farfisa, Casio, vibes, tubular bells, and more – all in this layered, textured style that also accommodates her lyrics as one more piece of the puzzle – in a spacey, fuzzy sort of way that's almost a more compressed take on krautrock ideals! The approach is a really unique one – and keeps Jane from being just another singer/songwriter with cosmic ideals – and instead makes the record a timeless European classic you might well file alongside lost gems from the 70s. There's some great help n the record, too – including a bit of production from David Holmes and Andy Votel – plus some guest electronics from Suzanne Ciani – and titles include "Argent", "The Electric Mountain", "Your Time In This Life Is Just Temporary", "Don't Take My Soul", "Arrows",a nd "Cells".

Hank WilliamsLegend Lives Anew – Hank Williams With Strings ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Hank Sr. gets dressed up in much more than the usual crisp cowboy formal wear he fancied for this late 60s repackaging of some of his long ago hits – with some high lonesome string arrangements added to the original recordings. Tracks include "Kaw-Liga", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "A House Without Love", "Wedding Bells", "I'm Sorry For You, My Friend", "A Picture From Life's Other Side", "Lovesick Blues", "You Win Again", "Let's Turn Back The Years", "They'll Never Take Her Love From Me", "Men With Broken Hearts", and "I Don't Care (If Tomorrow Ever Comes)".

✨✧ Bobby WomackPoet II ... LP
Beverly Glen, 1984. Sealed ... $2.99
One of Bobby's biggest albums of the 80s – and a smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. We're a bit more partial to Bobby's earlier work, but his voice is always a treasure, with a raspy soulful edge that never goes away, no matter how smooth the production. Titles include "Tryin To Get Over You", "Through The Eyes Of A Child", "Love Has Finally Come At Last", "Who's Foolin Who", and "I Wish I Had Someone To Go Home To". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby WomackPoet/Poet II ... CD
Beverly Glen/Abkco, 1982/1984. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Bobby's 2 groovy and highly successful Poet albums from the 80s – back to back on CD! The original Poet album showed the world that he was still very much on top of his game at the time. The sound here is great – still with that older Womack rasp and warmth, but also done in a slightly smoother mode that grooves things up with some modern soul touches, yet never loses Bobby's charm! Tunefully, the record is one of his best in years – with some wonderful mellow soul groovers that never fail to delight – all produced with a warm California sound, and featuring some great backing vocals by The Waters and a host of other Womacks. Titles include "So Many Sides Of You", "Lay Your Lovin On Me", "Secrets", "Just My Imagination", "Games", "If You Think You're Lonely Now", and "Where Do We Go From Here". Poet II is another smooth soulful set that features some nice guest work from the likes of George Benson, Patti Labelle, and Wilton Felder. Bobby's voice is always a treasure, with a soulful edge that never goes away, no matter how smooth the production! Titles include "Tryin To Get Over You", "Through The Eyes Of A Child", "Love Has Finally Come At Last", "Who's Foolin Who", and "I Wish I Had Someone To Go Home To". CD

✨✧ YellowmanNobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99 11.98
Classic mid 80s dancehall from Yellowman! Production by Henry Junjo Lawes, backing by Roots Radics and rhythms laid down at Channel One – often the recipe for greatness – and that's on the menu here. Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt came at an inarguable peak for Yellowman, with unstoppable rhythms and Yellowman's brilliant way of delivering gruff lyricism in an approachable way. Revolutionary material from an icon at a creatively crucial peak. Titles include "Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt", "Strictly Mi Belly", "Wreck A Pum Pum", "Hill & Gully Rider", "Bedroom Mazuka", "Good Loving", "Body Move", and "Watch Your Words".

Yellowman & Fathead/Purpleman/Sister NancyYellow, The Purple, The Nancy ... LP
Greensleeves, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A gem of a joint headlining record by Yellowman & Fathead, Purpleman and Sister Nancy – with a varied vocal flavor, but a sweetly simmering cohesive vibe – thanks to top shelf production by Junjo Lawes! All tunes features backing by the Hi Times Band, recorded at Channel One with a timeless feel. 10 tracks in all, including"Mr Wong", "Baby Father", and "Mash It Up Now" by Yellowman & Fathead, "Feeling Irie", "Get Ready", "Out Of Hand", and "Westmoreland Skank" by Purpleman, and "A No Any Man Can Test Sister Nancy", "Dance Pon The Corner" and "Bang Belly" by Sister Nancy.

Savoy, Mid 40s. Used ... $4.99
A great little 12 track LP that compiles some of Lester Young's small combo work for Savoy – featuring backing by players that include Count Basie, Freddie Green, Shadow Wilson, Cozy Cole, Roy Haynes, and Junior Mance. Titles include "June Bug", "Blue Lester", "Blues N Bells", "Basie English", "Jump Lester Jump", and "Ding Dong" – and the album comes with a great cover image! CD

Young JessieDon't Happen No More ... LP
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Solid sounds from Young Jessie – a onetime member of the famous Flairs, but a hell of a singer on his own! Jessie's got a raw power here that lives up to the best of the 50s R&B scene in California – and the set features work that the singer recorded for Capitol, Modern, Mercury, and other labels – all material that hardly ever got the right sort of circulation at the time – but which sounds brilliant here in one tight package! Backings are often razor-sharp, with a mix of R&B and jazz influences – a nod to the artist's later fame as jazz singer Obie Jessie, who we've stocked on some great contemporary spiritual jazz sessions. These sides are all soul, though – an early version of the style, produced with a nicely gritty edge – on cuts that include "Teacher Gimme Back", "I Smell A Rat", "Lonesome Desert", "Oochie Coochie", "Hit Git & Split", "Borwn Eyes", "The Wrong Door", "Lula Belle", "Mary Lou", and "Make Me Feel A Little Good". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ZNRBarricade 3 ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 24.99
Incredible experimental music from French duo ZNR – and a legendary record from 1976 that's so otherwordly, mesmerizing as it is, you'd be hard pressed to guess when it was recorded – it's kind of in it's own little universe! Spooky bits of piano and strange bits of synth are constant elements, as are eerie distorted bits of vocal – but those oddball elements are laced with more conventionally musical instrumentation that are closer to avant jazz. A strange gem! Includes "Le Grande Compositeur Vu De Face", "Droumier Assai Per S'Amourousis D'Un Moustre", "Seynete", "Espelisoun D'Uno Ribambello D'Evenimen Espetaclous Valentin Bilot", "Naive Description De La Formation", "Solo Un Dia", "Editioun Especialo D'Uno Grino De Jardin", "Trop De Douceur Ou Les Trois Soueurs: 2e Soeur" and more.

Attila ZollerDream Bells (with bonus track) ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A hell of an album from guitarist Attila Zoller – one that's just a trio date, but which almost seems to have a fuller feel than some of his records from the time! The rhythms are wonderful – this warm, round bass from Frank Luther, whose tones alone really create a soulful energy on the record – and drummer Sonny Brown's got this nicely skittish tone that percolates even the mellow moments in this really great way – leaving Zoller to solo spaciously over the top with a sublimet one, and maybe a slightly deeper sense of soul than usual. Titles include "Dream Bells", "Seascape", "In Your Own Sweet Way", and "Sudden Romance". CD features a bonus track – "Oleo". CD

John Zorn/Bill Frisell/Kenny Wollesen/John MedeskiTransmigration Of The Magus ... CD
Tzadik, 2014. New Copy ... $10.99 18.98
Really beautiful work from one our favorite John Zorn projects of the past few years – his sublime Gnostic Trio, a group with Bill Frisell on guitar, John Medeski on organ, and Kenny Wollesen on vibes! The trio come together here in these ethereal, hypnotic compositions by Zorn – really meditative music that's way different than the squeaks and squonks of his early years – and which shows this amazing maturation, and a great understanding of the more subtle sides of the sonic spectrum. For this album, the group adds in two harpists and one additional musician on bells and vibes – which only makes the sound more incredible – and titles include "Apocryphon", "The Divine Word", "Gnostic Hymn", "Into The Light", "Perfect Mind", and "Providence".

Various90 Degrees Of Shade – Hot Jump-Up Island Sounds From The Caribbean – Mambo, Calypso, Goombay, Mento, Merengue, Cult & Compas Music ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99 22.99
A way cooler set of music than you might expect – not the kind of overdone Caribbean cliches of the mainstream, but some really great lesser-known gems that mix together sounds and styles from Cuba to Haiti, to Jamaica, and beyond – served up here in a host of gems all hand-picked by the Soul Jazz Records crew! The music here is tighter and better produced than some of the earlier calypso featured on compilations on Honest Jons – but the sounds are still quite striking, and the music goes way beyond familiar modes from Harry Belafonte – to mix of jazzy elements, Latin rhythms, local styles, and lots more – with wonderful notes that really get at the music as well. A real surprise – one we love a lot more than we expected – with titles that include "Come To The Caribbean" by The Eloise Trio, "Timbales" by Alfredito, "Mississippi Mambo" by Noro Morales, "Donkey Wants Water" by Bay Street Boys, "Nago" by Katherine Dunham Ensemble, "Nassau Blues" by Peanuts Taylor, "West Indies" by Sonny Burke, "Mary's Lamb" by Hubert Porter & The Jamaica Calypso Funmakers, "Theme For Conga" by Julio Gutierrez, "Yembe Laroco" by Celia Cruz, "Omo Belli" by Gina Martin, "Maiz" by Katherine Dunham Presents Singing Gods, "Fifty Cents" by Duke Of Iron, "Anna Macao" by Eloise Trio, "Liza See Me Here" by King Scratch, "Con La Punta Del Pie Teresa" by Cortijo, "Perseverance" by Count Lasha, and "Whai Whai Whai" by Lord Fly.

VariousAttack Dub – Rare Dubs From Attack Records 1973 to 1977 ... CD
Attack/Jamaican Recordings (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
The attack is sharp here, but the decay is what really moves us – that slow fade and spacey sound that makes classic dubs like this so great! The package pulls together lots of rare tracks from the Attack label of Bunny Lee – most with music by The Aggrovators, and a whole extra level of sound and space from the production – which really abstracts the core elements in this totally great way! Tunes include dubs of work by Linval Thompson, Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell, Barry Brown, and others – and titles include "Don't Cut Off Your Dub", "A Dancing Roots Version", "Dance With Me Baby", "I'm Gone Dub", "Money Dub", "The Meduca", and "Easy Skanking Version".

VariousBlame It On The Dogg – The Swamp Dogg Anthology 1968 to 1978 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Jerry "Swamp Dogg" Williams is a man of many talents – a musical reach that goes way beyond his familiar solo records of the 70s, and which stretches back strongly with some deep roots in 60s soul! Back in the day, Williams worked often as a producer, arranger, and songwriter for a variety of different artists – a good deal of whom are featured on this set – one of the best collections we've ever seen of Jerry's mighty talents in the studio! In a way, Williams is almost better behind the booth in the studio than he is in front of the microphone – as he's got a way of handling an artist that really gets to the heart of their talents – mixed with his own sense of hutspah that helps get the recordings out to the market where a weaker producer might have failed at the job. CD features 24 tracks in all, along with some great notes on these other Swamp Dogg productions by Jerry – and tracks include "Plea #3" by Eleanor Grant, "Your Best Friend" by The Drifters, "He's Gone" by Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles, "On Your Way Home" by C & The Shells, "Shipwrecked" by Jerry Williams, "Stop Knocking" by Ruth Brown, "God Bless" by Wolfmoon, "Complication #4" by Arthur Conley, "Don't Trust A Woman" by Slick N The Family Brick, and "What's So Wrong With You Loving Me" by Kenny Carter.
