Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Songbook Vol 2 ... CD
Lumiar/Sony (Brazil), 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
Gilberto Gil's working here not as the main artist, but as the songwriter – the very special talent around which this excellent set of recordings is based! The package is one of our favorite in the Lumiar Songbooks series – and, like the rest, it showcases the tremendous compositional abilities of Gil – songs that have touched the Brazilian scene from the late 60s onward – presented here in a number of new recordings by some of his key contemporaries, and younger generations too! This second volume features lots of surprising versions of his tunes – 13 titles that include "Back In Bahia" by Barao Vermelho, "Palco" by Jorge Benjor, "Se Eu Quiser Falar Com Deus" by Gal Costa, "Punk Da Periferia" by Rita Lee, "Realce" by Sandra De Sa & Eduardo Dusek, "Divino Maravilhoso" by Leila Pinheiro, "Refazenda" by Paralamos Do Succeso, and "Pessoa Nefasta" by Erasmo Carlos.

Dwight TribleHorace ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates/Elephant (France), 2001. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
One of the first great collaborations between spiritual jazz vocalist Dwight Trible and producer Carlos Nino – a set that's got all the righteous power of some of our favorite jazz vocal sets from the early 70s! Trible's a singer with a sound that's amazing – partly linked to the modes that Leon Thomas used with Pharoah Sanders on Impulse Records, but also very much his own man too – able to sing from very deep in the sonic range, but with a fluid sense of inspiration that you'd normally hear from a tenor player. This special set is a tribute to Trible's mentor Horace Tapscott – a key figure on the LA underground jazz scene for decades – a place where Dwight was raised, and continued to create in a similar legacy. Players include Derf Reklaw on percussion, Billy Higgins on drums, and Charles Owens and George Harper on saxophones – and titles include a long version of Bill Lee's "John Coltrane", with new lyrics by Trible – plus "The Statesman", "Soul Eyes", "Mothership", "Return To The Ethers", and "Papa Lean Griot".

✨✧ VariousKev Beadle Presents The Best Of Inner City Records (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Inner City/BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An overdue look at the great range of sounds that came from Inner City Records at the end of the 70s – a hip American indie with a strong specialty in soulful fusion, hip vocalists, and a range of other great styles too – all brought together here by London DJ Kev Beadle! Inner City's often a bit overlooked – as the label flourished most strongly in the years after some of the better-known soulful imprints of the 70s – and the label always had a great ear for new sounds, fresh ideas, and the kind of compelling global elements that often led them to license key tracks from overseas, and bring them to the US market. This collection's heavy on singers – the kind of cool, underground jazz vocalists that Inner City captured so well – and it's also got a nice mix of funky fusion, modal numbers, and spiritual currents – on titles that include "The Other World" by Judy Roberts, "Hunt Up Wind" by Hiroshi Fukumura, "Vera Cruz" by Helen Merrill, "Lucky Southern" by Tom Lellis, "Quickie Nirvana" by Kellis Ethridge, "Samba De La Cruz" by Terumasa Hino, "So High" by Janet Lawson, "The Samba" by Jeff Lorber, "Return Of The Prodigal Son" by Joe Lee Wilson, "Shenkansen" by Urszula Dudziak, "To An Elfin Princess" by Charlie Mariano, "Pandora" by Carlos Franzetti, and "Jennine" by Eddie Jefferson.

Gato BarbieriTropico ... LP
A&M, 1978. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A far reaching late 70s set from Gato Barbieri – a record that blends fusiony jazz funk, lush stings, and Latin rhythms and fluid solos on a varied batch of tunes! One of the more interesting things about the production is that those varied approaches often come into play within the same tunes – with clean, lean fusiony bass and percussion underneath swelling string accents, showing Barbieri was unafraid to intermingle myriad influences at the time. Titles include a take on Caetano Veloso's "Odara", plus "Poinciana (Song Of The Tree)", "Latin Lady" (which guest Carlos Santana trading solos with Gato over tropical jazz funk backing), "She Is Michelle", "Where Is The Love", "Evil Eyes" and "Bolero".

Dollar BrandAfrican Marketplace ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Dollar Brand's more ambitious albums – featuring a larger group of players than usual, working through some compositions that have as much life and spirit as might be implied by the title! The group includes Brand on keyboards, conga, and soprano sax – plus work by Carlos Ward on sax, Gary Chandler on trumpet, Craig Harris on trombone, Cecil McBee on bass, and Dwayne Armstrong on tenor. Titles include "Whoza Mtwana", "The Homecoming Song", "Anthem For The New Nation", "African Marketplace", and "Moniebah". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Includes printed inner sleeve and press kit with one sheets & 8X10" glossy photo! Cover has a promo sticker.)

BT ExpressEnergy To Burn ... LP
Columbia/Roadshow, 1976. Very Good- ... $1.99
A killer set that's extremely well-titled – as BT Express were one of the hottest ensemble funk acts of their time! The groove here is definitely aimed at a more disco-oriented dancefloor than before – but the overall sound is plenty funky enough for our ears – thanks to some amazing horn passages arranged by Carlos Ward, whose own work on sax and flute really add an edgey quality to the set. Ward's horns are really fantastic – cutting and turning with a sharply-honed tone that keeps things fresh throughout – even when the rhythms are hitting more of a mainstream dancefloor sound. Titles include the group's mellow soul version of "Now That We've Found Love", plus "Herbs", "Time Tunnel", "Energy To Burn", "Can't Stop Groovin Now Wanna Do It Some More", and "Make Your Body Move". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kip HanrahanCoup De Tete ... LP
American Clave, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of Kip Hanrahan's incredible albums for American Clave – sides that are beyond description, and which seemed to emerge out of nowhere, offering some of the few true cross-cultural experiments in jazz in the 80s that didn't sound like they were forced or prepackaged! Kip's got a strong Latin influence here – working with players that include Jerry Gonzalez, Daniel Ponce, and Nicky Marrero, as well as New York downtown luminaries like Anton Fier, Arto Lindsay, and Carla Bley. Add in some strong soulful jazz players like Carlos Ward and Chico Freeman, and the album's got a depth that's surprising – and which makes Hanrahan's experiments in style work perfectly! Titles include "Sketch From Two Cubas", "No One Gets To Transcend Anything", "A Lover Divides Time", "This Night Comes Out Of Both Of Us", "At The Moment Of The Serve", and "India Song".

Via LacteaVia Lactea (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Monia/Wah Wah (Spain), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
An electronic masterpiece from Mexican experimentalist Carlos Alvarado – spun out in this spacey style that's almost spiritual jazz at times, thanks to the use of acoustic elements on flute, kalimba, and percussion! Alvarado plays a host of keyboards – Arp, Korg, and plenty more – often with an analogue presence that's much more early 70s than the 1980 vintage of the album – especially when mixed with the trippier acoustic elements in the music! A few points get slightly noisy, but only for a brief while – as the sound here is clearly going for a cosmic, redemptive vibe – and not any sort of brooding industrial style. Titles include "Via Lumiere", "El Jardin De La Presencia Divina", "La Estructura Del Universo", "La Alondra Y La Virgen", and "Meditaction Post Atomica". Also includes bonus track – "Ainsoph" – from an earlier 7" single. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Great pressing – with insert, sticker, and foldover sleeve. Please note: This copy has a creased corner.)

✨✧ Vinicius De Moraes & ToquinhoO Poeta E O Violao ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful recording from the early 70s – cut at a time when the Brazilian poet Vinicius De Moraes was still alive and kicking, and had assumed his role as the grandfather of the bossa nova – by teaming up with younger guitarist Toquinho in very much the same way he worked with Baden Powell and Antonio Carlos Jobim in earlier years! This recording is one of the pair's best – and it features a warm interplay of easy going vocals, backed by guitar, recorded in a style that's both intimate, but not too sleepy – as lovely an illustration of the sentiments of Vinicius as you could hope to find, especially when both singers vocalize back and forth – almost as if reflecting the warmth of the world in which the bossa was born. Titles include "Dora", "Apelo", "Nature Boy", "Chega De Saudade", "Morena Flor", "Januaria", and "Canto De Ossanha". CD
