Lightnin' RodHustlers Convention (Charly pressing) ... CD
Celluloid/Charly (UK), 1974. Used ... $5.99
Fantastic stuff – incredibly hard and incredibly funky, and a masterpiece all the way through! Long before there was any talk of gangster rap, Jalal of the Last Poets recorded this album of gamblin', pimpin', and hard double dealin'. It's a fantastic album-long ride through the dark side of the black underworld, and is the aural equivalent of a blacksploitation flick. Kool & The Gang provided the music – and Jalal tells the whole story throughout, in the same hard rappin' style he used with the Last Poets! The record's an undisputed classic, and includes the sample classic "Sport", plus loads of other righteous funky cuts! CD

Don CherryMu First Part/Mu Second Part/Orient ... CD
BYG/Charly (UK), 1970. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A trio of classic albums from Don Cherry – packaged in a heavy book-like cover, with lots of new notes too! On the first part of the set, Cherry really breaks out on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles include "Total Vibration", "Sun Of The East", "Brilliant Action", "Terrestrial Beings", "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon". Orient is a beauty from Don Cherry – and one of his rarest records! This set was originally only ever issued by the Japanese branch of BYG Records in the early 70s, and it features 2 live performances from France, both of them great! Don's in a spare trance-like mode here – working with one trio comprised of bassist Johnny Dyani and percussionist Okay Temiz; and another trio with Han Bennink on percussion and Moqui on tambura. Tracks from both sets are very long and stretched-out – a mixture percussion, trumpet, flute, piano, and occasional vocals, often done in a globally expansive style. Titles include "Si Ta Ra Ma", "Orient", "Eagle Eye", and "Togetherness". CD

Stanley CowellMusa ... CD
Strata East/Charly (UK), 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A solo piano set from Strata East mainman Stanley Cowell – but a record that's got enough soul and spirituality to rival a full group recording! Although working alone here, Cowell's touch on the keys is astounding – often flowing and highly rhythmic, with a pulsating sense of energy that makes even the mellower tracks sparkle with soulful imagination. A number of tracks are intimate explorations of themes heard more famously on albums done with Charles Tolliver – but which come alive in a whole new way here in Stanley's solo setting! Most work here is on acoustic piano, but Cowell also picks up the electric keys for the tune "Travelin Man" – done here as an overdubbed "duet", and one of the hippest tunes on the entire record! Other titles include "Abscretions", "Equipoise", "Prayer For Peace", "Departure No 2", "Sweet Song", and "Emil Danenberg". CD

Sonny Boy WilliamsonOne Way Out ... CD
Charly (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $7.99
A great little collection of work that Sonny Boy Williamson recorded for Chess in the 50s and early 60s – presented here as one of the well-done archival packages that Chess was doing in the early 70s, as interest in their classics was coming back again. Most of the numbers here feature Williamson on vocals and harmonica, working with likely Chess associates who include Otis Spann and Lafayette Leake on piano, Muddy Waters and Robert Lockwood on guitars, and Willie Dixon on bass – and the set features the tracks "Born Blind", "I Wonder Why", "This Is My Apartment", "Cool Disposition", "I Know What Love Is All About", "Too Close Together", "Keep It To Yourself", and "Don't Lose Your Eye".

Young Lions (Lee Morgan & Wayne Shorter)Young Lions (UK pressing) ... CD
Vee Jay/Charly (UK), 1960. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
One of our top ten jazz albums of all time! Honest! This stunning session from 1960 not only coined the term "young lions" in jazz, but offers up a pack of them that any modern players would be hard-pressed to beat. Trumpeter Lee Morgan, tenorist Wayne Shorter, and pianist Bobby Timmons take a break from the Jazz Messengers to join altoist Frank Strozier in the frontline on this fantastic set of tracks that ring with a lyrical beauty hardly surpassed by any other hardbop album. Shorter wrote nearly all of the tracks, and the set list includes some of his best-ever work, like "Seeds Of Sin", "Scourin'", and "Peaches & Cream" – all beautiful tracks that are completely sublime. The group's completed by Bob Cranshaw on bass and Albert Heath on drums – and other titles include "Fat Lady", and "That's Right". If you buy one jazz album this year, let it be this one! CD also features alternate takes of "Seeds Of Sin", "Scourin", and "Fat Lady". CD

✨✧ VariousSoul Togetherness 2016 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wickedly sharp entry in the Soul Togetherness series – and one that maybe features a bit more contemporary material than before! There's a few older tracks from the modern soul years of the late 70s – but most of the work here is contemporary soul from the global underground – brought together in a collection that's especially important, given that the scene has moved so strongly to digital releases and one-off singles! These tracks are partly from that hinterland, and partly from the well-chosen range of cuts that we've come to expect from Expansion Records and DJ Richard Searling – a talent who's been running the Soul Togetherness empire for 30 years, and really knows his way around a track. Titles include "Don't Quit" by Deiphuis & Eastar with Jocelyn Brown, "Sunshine" by Los Charly's Orchestra, "I Got To Party" by SouLutions, "Just Talk To Me (boogie back rmx)" by Tracy Hamlin, "No Limit (ext mix)" by Breakwater, "Stranger (back to the future mix)" by Farina Miss, "Adieu" by Trina Broussard, "I Can Feel It (Soulshy mix)" by Beat Rivals, "Never Loved Nobody" by Puff Johnson, "Lotta Love (ext orig version)" by Nicolette Larson, "What I Done Wrong" by Big Lee Dowell & The Cannonballas, "Just Whatcha Like" by Zo with Joi, "All In The Name Of Love" by Seest, and "You & I (spider edit)" by Ronnie Jones.

Eugen CiceroRomantic Swing – Eugen Cicero Plays Franz Liszt ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $23.99
One of the more obscure albums that Eugen Cicero cut for the MPS label – still in the jazz-meets-classical vein of the rest, but featuring work by Franz Liszt, which maybe gives the whole thing a more fluid groove! The trio is Cicero's fantastic group with Charly Antolini on drums and Peter Witte on bass! LP, Vinyl record album

Horst JankowskiJankowski Originals Vol 3 – Still More Genius Of Jankowski/So What's New ... CD
Mercury/Jazzclub (Germany), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99
Two classics from this legendary instrumental wonder – back to back on a single CD! First up is Still More Genius Of Jankowski – fantastic piano work from the very groovy Horst Jankowski – an artist who's really stepping into his own with this sweet mid 60s album! The set still follows the balance of electric bass and hard piano sounds from Horst – but it also fleshes out the music in a really great way, by adding in these lovely larger backings from the Erwinh Lehn orchestra – every bit as full of color as on their classic album for MPS! The Lehn touch is a great one – and makes the whole thing really sound wonderful – with that balance of tonal complexity and straightforward groove that made some of the MPS/Saba productions so great. Titles include "Violets In March", "Elmer's Tune", "Black Forest Holiday", "Shadow of Your Smile", "Danke Danke", "Sir Scotch Whiskey", and "Let's Live a Little". So What's New is a record that really has Horst Jankowski taking off with his sound – serving up a fair bit of his own tunes, getting orchestral help from Erwin Lehn, and even some tight help on rhythm from the duo of Peter Witte on bss and Charly Antolini on drums – who really add an MPS pedigree to the proceedings! Jankowski's piano is recorded in a wonderfully isolated way – almost like the way that piano was recorded by Chet Atkins in the RCA Nashville studios, but a lot more groovy overall – and set atop these warmly jazzy orchestrations that really make things sparkle! The set's filled with original tunes – including "Exactly You", "Dreamer's Concerto", "My Roman Love Song", "A Place In The Sun", "Highway at Night", and "Bossa Novissima". CD

Horst JankowskiJankowski Originals Vol 4 – Baby But Grand/And We Got Love ... CD
Mercury/Jazzclub (Germany), 1967. New Copy ... $8.99
Instrumental magic from pianist Horst Jankowski – two 60s classics back to back! Baby But Grand features the grand piano in the hands of the maestro – the great Horst Jankowski, an artist who took the instrument from the concert hall to the AM radio in the 60s! The album's got Jankowksi playing in this nicely punctuated style – a deftness of fingerskills that points towards a more serious virtuoso, but set up here with loads of groovy 60s touches in the arrangements – like occasional wordless vocals from the Jankoswki Singers, and backings from the Erwin Lehn orchestra that are a masterpiece of color and light! Titles include "The Spy With A Cold Nose", "And We Were Lovers", "Beautiful Hong Kong Girl", "Lost Love", "That's Life", and "Shne Boo Bedee Bop". And We Got Love is a fantastic album from the great Horst Jankowski – and a set that really points the way towards some of his groovy records to come for the MPS label! The sound here is maybe a bit more sprightly and upbeat than some of Jankowski's previous records – still a haunting blend of his grand piano lines and larger backings handled by Erwin Lehn, but also balanced with a more pronounced sense of rhythm on some cuts – thanks to drums from the mighty Charly Antolini! These upbeat tunes have a soaring swing that's completely sublime – Horst really setting the pop instrumental mode free to hit the next level – and titles include "A Band", "Casino Royale", "Zabadak", "The Happening", "It Must Be Him", "Don't Sleep In The Subway", and "The Last Waltz".

Dieter ReithHappy Afternoon ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $15.99
An essential bit of piano jazz from MPS – and one of the rarest sides on their Saba label from the 60s! German keyboardist Dieter Reith plays with a cracklin' trio that includes Peter Witte on bass, and powerhouse Charly Antolini on drums. The tracks are a mix of originals and jazz standards, and they're all played with a light lively approach, and the trademark piano jazz groove that's made some of these MPS albums favorites on the international groove scene. Some of the best tracks are Deiter's "Happy Afternoon" and "How About A Blues", which both have a nice breezy groove to them, but the record also has nice versions of "Green Dolphin Street", "Wives & Lovers", and "Days Of Wine And Roses".

Art plays accordion – in a way that works perfectly with the banks of sound and sweetness we love from the group – an instrument whose own breathy tones turns out to be a perfect accompaniment for their harmonies, especially in the way it sets a very melancholy mood! Other instrumentation is great too – relatively spare use of the guitar of Sigi Schwab, plus vibes from Heribert Thusek, bass from Eberhard Weber, and drums from Charly Antolini – and titles include a really sublime version of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Wave", plus "Violets For Your Furs", "Cherry", "Spring Is Here", "Ecstasy", "We Could Be Flying", and "Invitation".

A great mix of Cuban music and diversely danceable, percussive sounds from around the globe – on this excellent entry in the Brownswood label's and producer/tastemaker Gilles Peterson's Havana Cultura series! It's amazing stuff, and about as seamless a blend of styles as can be, while still being able to describe it as Soundclash – often with Cuban vocals, percussion and rhythms, with either subtle or fairly bold electronics, depending on the track – contributed by artists from Chile, UK, Germany, Hungary, Holland, South Africa and beyond.

Insanely wonderful! The German MPS label has always been one of our favorites – and we've stocked any compilations or individual artist titles we could get over the years – but this new comp blows away just about anything we've had before! The folks at Crippled Dick lovingly combed through the label's vast catalog of jazz, Latin, fusion, and Brazilian grooves – and they came up with a set that's got fantastic goodies from the label that have never been unearthed on other compilations before! Believe us, even if you have the Talking Jazz compilations, this one's got a huge amount of stuff you'll never have – and it's all great, and packaged beautifully with great notes, photos, and album cover reproductions. Titles include "Space Bugaloo" by Mike Nock, "That Ol Bus Smell" by Peter Herbholzheimer, "Woe's All Over Me" by Charly Antolini, "Funf Zu Vier" by Erwin Lehn, "Maiden Voyage" by Third Wave, "JBW" by Bora Rakovic, "Dur Dur Dur" by Barney Wilen, and lots more!

✨✧ Elsie BianchiSweetest Sound ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the earliest standout albums on MPS – a killer mid 60s session from pianist/vocalist Elsie Bianchi – working here in a very tight trio mode! Elsie only sings on about half the tracks, but all those are very very nice – done in a style that's got some of the cool touches of the European female mode of the time. But even better are the instrumental numbers, because Bianchi's a sprightly talent on the keys – really leaping around nicely, and working with the bass of Siro Bianchi and drums of Charly Antolini in one of the first great takes on the Saba groove! Titles include a great bossa-esque version of Pete Jolly's "Little Bird", a groovy take on "Fiddler On The Roof", and Elsie's own "Little Blues" – plus the tracks "Meditation", "Why Did I Choose You", "Teach Me Tonight", and "The Shadows Of Paris".
