Robert NighthawkBricks In My Pillow ... LP
Pearl Records, Early 50s. Sealed ... $24.99
Overlooked work from the Chicago blues scene of the postwar years – great material from an important early electric player – but one who never got the large exposure of some of his contemporaries on Chess Records! And yet, back in the day Robert Nighthawk was as important to the development of the Chicago sound as Muddy Waters – wonderfully skilled on the strings, and a hell of a singer too – with a deep baritone that often has a bit of a link to jump blues in the way that Robert delivers his phrasing – although the sound here is definitely Chicago blues overall! All numbers are small combo sides recorded for the United Records label – and players include Roosevelt Sykes and Bob Call on piano, Ransom Knowling on bass, and Jump Jackson drums. Titles include "Brick In My Pillow", "Seventy Four", "Crying Won't Help YOu", "You Missed A Good Man", "Feel So Bad", "U/S Boogie", and "Maggie Campbell". LP, Vinyl record album
(Late 70s pressing.)

Nurse With WoundEcho Poeme – Sequence No 2 (white colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
United Jnana/Drastic Plastic, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.98
A later Nurse With Wound project – an eerily beautiful one, in which 2 female voices are looped and layered to haunting, hypnotic effect! Echo Poeme – Sequence No 2 is a single, 48+ plus minute piece in which Nurse With Wound creative force Stephen Stapleton is credited as mixer, and vocalists Amantine Dahan Steiner and Isabelle Goborit are both band and instrument. They speak, sing, hum and coo and Stapleton mixes it strangely beautiful ways. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ OutkastATLiens (2LP 180 gram picture disc) ... LP
LaFace, 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 39.98
The huge creative leap forward for Outkast – and one of the greatest hip hop albums ever! The duo laid some incredible groundwork with the debut Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, but this one is really their first (and stunningly, not their last) masterpiece. Timeless and soulful outer space grooves lace teh production and beats behind crazy good, free flowing, inventive rhymes that still manage to stay grounded enough to aptly reflect the darker realities of the ATL of the time. Most tracks have a laid back southern fried groove, and Dre and Big Boi's rhymes are as great as ever here. Essential! Tracks include "ATLiens", "Two Dope Boyz (In A Cadillac)", "Wheelz Of Steel", "Jazzy Belle", "Babylon", "Millennium", and "13th Floor/Growing Old". 14 cuts in all. LP, Vinyl record album
(Really nice 20th anniversary double picture disc pressing!)

PagesPages ... CD
Epic/Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A 70s classic from Pages – a group that's headed up by singer Richard Page, but which also features some key studio players of the time! There's a mix of soulful elements amidst more mainstream modes – a vibe that's definitely AOR, but hipper too – of that really special blend that only a handful of artists could hit at the time – kind of an "almost to the charts" quality, but one that holds back to make their music more of an underdiscovered secret, too. The album's got lots of fusion touches from musicians who include Victor Feldman, Claudio Slon, Franciso Aguabella, and Randy Brecker – and titles include "Clearly Kim", "I Get It From You", "If I Saw You Again", "Let It Go", and "Love Dance". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

William ParkerThrough Acceptance Of The Mystery Place (with bonus track) ... CD
Centering/Eremite, 1976/1981. Used ... $6.99
Early genius from William Parker – a set of work inspired by the poems of Kenneth Patchen, and performed with a really vivid sound overall! The players here differ from track to track – and the album comes together almost like a sonic suite – echoing some themes very slightly, not in a musical way, but more of an emotive one – gently lyrical one minute, but more boldly expressive at another. Players include Billy Bang and Polly Bradfield on violin, Toshinori Kondo on alto horn, Jemeel Moondoc on alto sax, Arthur Williams on trumpet, John Hagen and Charles Brackeen on tenor, and Parker on bass. Titles include "Rattles & Bells & The Light Of The Sea", "Desert Flower", "Through Acceptance Of The Mystery Peace", and "Commitment". CD also features a bonus track recorded in 1976 – "Face Hands Still Folded", with Billy Bang and Ramsey Ameen on violin, and Parker performing a recitation. CD

✨✧ John PattonAccent On The Blues ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good- ... $11.99
One of the last John Patton albums for Blue Note, and one of the best. A young James "Blood" Ulmer's on guitar, and Marvin Cabell (who we only know from Patton LPs) is on tenor and flute. The sound is deep and soulful, and despite the "accent on the blues" of the title, the feel's more blue note than bluesy. Great versions of Harold Mabern's "Rakin' & Scrapin" and Eddie Harris' "Freedom Jazz Dance", plus some excellent originals by Cabell. LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty/UA pressing. Cover has some marker on the back.)

Rage Against The MachineRage Against The Machine (20th Anniversary picture disc edition) ... LP
Legacy/Epic, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The classic agit-rap-rock debut of Rage Against The Machine – with the most fiery political lyricism and imagery of any massively popular record of its time – and as great of a pairing of revolutionary rap and heavy guitars as there ever was! It's hard to imagine now, but there were very few straight up rap rock bands before Rage Against The Machine. Hard rock breaks were ample, of course, but straight up rap rock bands were pretty scarce, pre-Rage. Rage Against The Machine's pop culture revolution was as massive as the social and political revolution that their songs called for! Includes "Bombtrack", "Killing In The Name", "Take The Power Back", "Settle For Nothing", "Bullet In The Head", "Know Your Enemy", "Wake Up", "Fistful Of Steel", "Township Rebellion" and "Freedom".

Lou ReedRCA & Arista Albums Collection (16CD set) ... CD
Sony, 1970s/1980s. New Copy 16CD ... $129.99 199.98
An insanely wonderful legacy in music – almost all of the important solo albums by Lou Reed – packaged here in one fantastically-done deluxe set! The sounds alone are worth the price of admission – music that begins with early post-Velvet Underground material recorded for RCA – with Reed reinventing himself as a gender-twisting poet of the New York scene – to a run of overlooked albums for Arista, where Reed deepened his skills as a songwriter – to an 80s return to RCA, where the singer emerged with a new sort of mature, positive outlook! Lou's a genius at every step of the way – and continues that here with his supervision of all the albums, and this overall package – done before his passing away, and his last legacy on record. Hal Willner also helped put the project together, and contributes beautiful notes to the 80 page hardbound book – which is filled with rare photos, art and other items from Reed's personal collection – and the heavy LP-sized box also features five 8" x 10" prints, and a reproduction of a rare RCA promotional poster. Features the albums Lou Reed, Transformer, Berlin, Rock & Roll Animal, Sally Can't Dance, Metal Machine Music, Coney Island Baby, Rock & Roll Heart, Street Hassle, Take No Prisoners, The Bells, Growing Up In Public, Blue Mask, Legendary Hearts, New Sensations, and Mistrial.

Mike Reed's People Places & ThingsProliferation ... CD
482 Music, 2008. Used ... $8.99
A record with a concept that's really after our own heart – dedicated to the lesser-known forces in the Chicago jazz scene of the late 50s – put together as a tribute of sorts to the MJT+3, tenorist Nicky Hill, altoist John Jenkins, pianist King Fleming, and The Sutherland Hotel! Mike Reed's musical vision is quite clear here – as the group swings like some of the best modern Chicago combos from that wonderful period, but also shows off some sharper edges too – kind of playing with one foot in that first fresh wave of Chicago jazz in the 50s, but also showing some of the bolder voices that have grown up in the scene in recent years. Greg Ward's reed work is wonderful – on both alto and clarinet – and the group also features Tim Haldeman on tenor, and Jason Roebke on bass – and all players handle a bit of percussion and piano too. Titles include tracks by Wilbur Campbell, Sun Ra, John Neely, Tommy Madman Jones, and other Chicago figures – plus a few of Reed's own – cuts that include "Is It", "Wilbur's Tune", "People", "Status Quo", "Planet Earth", "Fa", "Pondering", "Saturn", and "Things".

✨✧ Mike Reed's People Places & ThingsStories & Negotiations ... CD
482 Music, 2010. Used ... $4.99
An incredible meeting of two generations of Chicago modern jazz – the contemporary one, represented by the group of Mike Reed – and a postwar generation, represented by players who include trumpeter Art Hoyle, tenorist Ira Sullivan, and trombonist Julian Priester! Given that both Hoyle and Priester have a resume that includes work with Sun Ra, you can bet they're a great fit for the forward-thinking sounds of drummer Reed's group – the excellent Peoples, Places, & Things combo that also features Jeb Bishop on trombone, Greg Ward on alto, Tim Haldeman on tenor, and Jason Roebke on bass. This piano-less ensemble sounds amazing here – a mix of older and younger players, recorded live in performance at Chicago's Milennium Park – performing work that includes some Chicago modern classics by Sun Ra, Wilbur Campbell, John Jenkins, Clifford Jordan, and Priester. Titles include "Urnack", "Lost & Found", "El Is A Sound Of Joy", "Song Of A Star", "Third Option", "Wilbur's Tune", and "The And Of 2". CD

Emil RichardsLuntana – Afro Cuban Jazz ... CD
Interworld, 1996. Used ... $8.99
Recent work by Emil Richards – the hip percussionist/vibist who was one of the best things going in the LA studio scene of the 60s! Although Emil's worked on countless sessions – from rock, to soul, to jazz, to soundtracks – he's always had a great ear for the Latin groove, and he shows that that ear is still running strong on this great new set! The album features versions of jazz standards and classic tunes written by Richards or his 60s contemporaries – performed by a group that includes older west coast players like Francisco Aguabella, Al McKibbon, Chuck Domanico, and Dave Mackay. Titles include "Here", "Blues For Harry", "Luntana", "Hot Buttered Popcorn", "Meet The Flintstones", "Celesta II", and "Marduk The 12th Planet". CD

John SangsterAhead Of Hair ... LP
Festival/Blank (Australia), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
One of the grooviest takes on the music of Galt MacDermot you'll ever hope to hear – as Australian percussionist John Sangster turns in some wonderful rhythm-heavy versions of the tunes from Hair – and also adds in a few sweet numbers of his own! Sangster also wrote a few new tracks, and the whole thing works as a nice suite that moves between percussive stuff and funky moments. The main mode is jazz, but there's lots of other wild touches in the mix too – as Sangster plays vibes, theremin, congs, claves, guiro, kalimba, tubular bells, marimba, Indian bells, and lots more instruments – alongside organ from the great Col Nolan, plus Bob McIvor on trombone, Lennie Hutchinson on bass, and Derek Fairbrass on drums. Ben Turpin adds in a bit of "moon voice" – which is as cool as it sounds – and titles include "Frank Mills", "Turn On", "Walking In Space", "Drop Out", "Three Five Zero Zero", "Good Morning Sunshine", "Let The Sunshine In", "What A Piece Of Work Is Man", "Hashish", "Aquarius", and "Hare Krishna".

Carlo SavinaContronatura (The Unnaturals) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
A nice Carlo Savina score for this Italian film also known as The Unnaturals – a title that's also reflected in some of the moodier, offbeat tunes used by Savina on the soundtrack! The music is an unusual blend – as there's some numbers that almost have a whimsical saxophone or clarinet line, which are offset by more of the deeper, darker tunes that really make the record great – these brooding numbers that often lurk in some of the shadowy corners of sound, embellished by Savina with some oddly-tuned strings or reeds. CD features 25 tracks in all, a nice-looking package, and the usual high Digitmovies level of sound! CD

Bobby ScottCompositions Of Bobby Scott ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $8.99
Really wonderful work from pianist Bobby Scott – a perfect showcase not just for his young talents as a composer and arranger, but also for a host of key solo performers as well! This full album brings together two previous 10" LP sessions – both of them brilliant, and graced by some of the most modern talents Bethlehem Records had to offer – which makes for extremely fresh sounds from Scott's wonderful music – jazz that's at a level that's really hard to peg – neither west coast cool, nor east coast arranged – but a really special space of its own! Even when tunes are short, they're full of feeling – and really make tremendous use of the individual players – who include Hal McKusick on alto, Eddie Bert on trombone, and Ronnie Woellmer on the first session – and the amazing Charlie Mariano on alto for the second, sounding incredible here – alongside Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bill Holman on tenor, Jimmy Giuffre on baritone, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Titles include "Moon Tan", "Kwan Youen", "Wigwam", "The Creed", "A Parable", "The Wig", "Count Bill", and "Cerebellum". CD

Avery SharpeSojourner Truth – Ain't I A Woman? ... CD
JKNM, 2012. Used ... $9.99
Very soulful jazz from Avery Sharpe – who plays acoustic and electric bass on the set – on the bassist and composer's wonderful tribute to and African American abolitionist and women's rights advocate Sojourner Truth! The record is an effective tribute to the brave woman it's named after, and it's also an enlightening one – but it's also a remarkably timeless jazz album by Avery, who has played in bands with some of greatest living legends over the years, as well as writing and recording great work of his own! Onaje Allan Gumbs is on piano, Craig Handy on saxes, Yoron Israel on drums and Duane Eubanks on trumpet. Includes "Isabella's Awakening", "Bomefree", "Ain't I Woman?", "Truth Be Told" and more, a nice version of "Motherless Child" with vocals by Jeri Brown, "Virtuous She Is" and more. CD

Sonny Simmons & Moksha SamnyasinNomadic ... CD
Svart (Finland), 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
A really unusual setting for reedman Sonny Simmons – a set that's quite different than his spiritual avant classics, as it has him working with the rockish trio Moksha Samnyasin! Yet the sound is still quite spiritual, too – as the tracks are long, open, and extremely evocative – each with very poetic titles, and a sound that mixes the brooding electric bass of Thomas Bellier with lighter lines on sitar from Michel Kristof – creating a balance that's perfect for the exploratory notes that Simmons brings to the music on Cor Anglais and alto sax! Drummer Sebastien Bismuth can play with a heavy sound at times – kicking in dark energy that unites him with the bass – but our favorite moments are when he's more laidback, and working more with percussion and electronics, and letting Simmons dominate the lead more strongly. Titles include "Help Them Through This World", "We Are Entering The Place Of That", "When It Comes I Don't Fight It", and "I Put It In A Dark Area Where I Can't Remember No More". CD
