ClipseHell Hath No Fury (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 2006. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The long-gestated follow up to the breakout Lord Willin' record by Clipse – announced in fall 2003 – finally released in late 2006! Hell Hath No Fury may have been on ice for 3 years, but it appeared as an instant classic, WAY up at the top of the list of greatest hip hop LPs of the mid 00s. The Neptunes beats are very spare and chilly, despite the fiery title – while the Pusha T & Malice style of precise storytelling and detached deliveries probably make them one of the most natural duos in the game. A gritty rap masterpiece. Tracks include "We Got It For Cheap", "Momma I'm So Sorry", the masterful "Mr Me Too" feat Pharrell, "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" feat Slim Thug, "Dirty Money", "Ride Around Shining" feat the Re-Up Gang, "Key's Open Doors", "Chinese New Year" feat Rosco P Coldchain, "Nightmares" feat Pharrell & Bilal and more.

Don BryantPrecious Soul (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $25.99
A real lost treasure on Hi Records – one of the few albums ever cut by Don Bryant, a singer whose talents seemed to be eclipsed by the rising stars of Al Green and Ann Peebles – but who was every bit as great! Bryant's got a sound here that's still firmly in the Hi style forged by Willie Mitchell – who produces this set – but there's also some nicely rougher edges too, a sound that's almost more Stax than Hi – and which certainly features a bit of a nod to Wilson Pickett down in Muscle Shoals – not exactly funk, but with some nice grit in the grooves! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Try Me", "Cry Baby", "Funky Broadway", "Soul Man", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "She's Looking Good", and "Slip Away". CD

✨✧ Billy CobhamTotal Eclipse ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good- ... $2.99
Full throttle fusion from Billy Cobham, the kind of stuff we once winced at because of the really over the top moments of heavy, heavy jamming, but that we find ourselves more sympathetic to these days, probably for the more sublime moments that poke through the onslaught here and there, including some nice spacey tracks. The Brecker brothers are up front, and the group has the tight electric approach you'd guess, with some easier grooves sliding in between the full on moments, and even a bit of funk, too. Includes "Solarization", "Lunarputians", "Total Eclipse", "Bandits", "Moon Germs","The Moon Ain't Made Of Green Cheese", "Sea Of tranquility" and "Last Frontier" LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneKulu Se Mama ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Good Gatefold ... $9.99
One of our favorite albums ever from John Coltrane – but a record that's sometimes eclipsed by the genius of A Love Supreme! The feel here is very similar to that one – long tracks that introduce a new mode of searching, spiritual jazz for the 60s – one that's performed by a core quintet with Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – but which also features added players on the side-long title track! "Kulu Se Mama" is a tremendously bold statement in music – one that features a bit of spiritual vocals from Juno Lewis, plus added bass clarinet from Donald Garrett, tenor from Pharoah Sanders, and drums from Frank Butler. The two other tracks – "Vigil" and "Welcome" – are performed by a quartet, but are still equally great! LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie HubbardBlack Angel ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1970. Used ... $8.99
A totally fantastic set from the turn of the 70s, and one of Freddie Hubbard's most soulful, spiritual albums ever – a seminal chapter in the evolution of soul jazz – and a record that was a keen inspiration for changes to come on labels like Strata East and Black Jazz! The group here features Kenny Barron on both electric and acoustic piano – really stretching out with a hip, open sort of sound – possibly his first of this type on record – and other players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Patato Valdes on added percussion – giving a more complicated groove to the best numbers. Tunes are all long and well-penned – three by Freddie himself ("Eclipse", "Spacetrack", "Gittin' Down"), one by Kenny Barron ("Black Angel"), and one by Walter Bishop (the original recording of his classic "Coral Keys"!)

Bobby HutchersonTotal Eclipse (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A brilliant collaboration between vibist Bobby Hutcherson and reedman Harold Land – the first Blue Note album to feature the talents of the pair together, and a stone classic from the very first note! Hutcherson had already been making big waves for the label with his earlier sides – some avant, some soulful, all great – but adding Land's magical tenor and flute to the mix really opens his sound up a lot, and unlocks a lyrical quality in Bobby's music that really points the way to his flourishing years in the 70s! Yet all is not totally sweet – as both Land and Hutcherson maintain an edginess on the record that makes it more of a progression from the "new thing" years than a break – and pianist Chick Corea is on hand, moving through a very similar path in his own music too. Other players include Reggie Johnson on bass and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with that free-wheeling soulful sound that Land seemed to nicely bring to Hutcherson's playing. Titles include "Herzog", "Same Shame", "Maxtrix", "Total Eclipse", and "Pompeian". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz Critique Special EditionIssue 132 – Rare Jazz EP Special ... Book
Jazz Critique (Japan), 2006. New Copy ... $16.99
A great introduction to one of the rarest sides of the jazz vinyl spectrum – the smaller 7" EP recordings that were issued heavily by US and European labels in the 50s and 60s! Although some of these sides featured work from full length albums, a good many of the – especially in Europe – featured exclusive tracks that were often eclipsed by the bigger releases, and which make for some of the most unusual work by the artists involved. This well-done issue of Jazz Critique offers a great overview of this under-collected side of jazz vinyl – and features an initial section with many EP covers in color, then fuller discographical listings in black and white, with session, date, and player information! Important details are all in English, with added commentary in Japanese – but whatever your language, there's plenty interesting stuff here to hip you to more music! This EP section takes up most of the magazine – over 100 pages – and the rest is articles and reviews in Japanese. Book

Kyoto Jazz Sextet (Kyoto Jazz Massive)Mission ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $28.99
Kyoto Jazz Massive is on a soulful mission this time around – stepping out on Blue Note with a wonderful tribute to the rich legacy of the label! The music is directed by Shuya Okino, and played by a super-sharp quintet who really recall the genius of Blue Note in the 60s – especially that time when the label was perfectly balanced between modern and hardbop modes, as evidenced by the selection of compositions here by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Henderson! None of the tracks are straight remakes, and there's definitely a fresh, acoustic spin on the rhythms – played by a lineup that includes trumpet, tenor, piano, bass, and drums – plus some guest instrumentation as well. Tracks include the group's own "Eclipse" – plus "Search For The New Land", "Succotash", "The Melting Pot", "Mr Jin", "Jinrikisha", "Up A Step", and "Speak No Evil". CD

Last PoetsRight On! ... CD
Collectables, 1970. Used ... $5.99
One of the wildest albums ever by the mighty Last Poets! Billed as "a woodstock in poetry", this is the soundtrack to the obscure film Right On (billed as "the hit film" on the cover), which was shot using the first version of the Last Poets that included Felipe Lucianao, David Nelson, and the wild card Gylan Kain – a group who originally had the name and style of protest poetry, but who had been eclipsed when the poet Abiodun left them and formed the group that first recorded for Douglas Records. The album, sort of a "we're back" effort, was produced by Juggy Murray, and apparently all recorded at the Cubiculo Theatre in New York – and it's one of two albums on the Juggernaut label, which also featured Kain's solo record. Most of the record is spare percussion, with the band shouting over the top – and the sound is even rawer than the group's first LP on Douglas. The titles should say it all – as the record features "My Pretty N*gger", "Tell Me Brother", "Die Nigga!", "James Brown", "Soul", "Poetry Is Black", "Into The Streets", and "Library", clearly a big influence on KRS-1.

Rita LeeBuild Up/Hoje E O Primeiro Dia Do RestoDa Sua Vida/Atras De Porto Tem Uma Cidade (3CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1970/1972/1974. Used 3CD ... $32.99
The first three solo albums from Os Mutantes singer Rita Lee – all work that really follows in a great vibe from her key contributions to the Tropicalia scene! Build Up has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after leaving the Velvet Underground. Arrangements have a weird twisted edge – as Rita makes her way through a set of originals and a few covers, in an almost deadpan, ice-blond mode that reminds us of some of Jane Birkin's early work. Arrangements are by the great Rogerio Duprat, and titles include "Sucesso, Aqui Vou Eu", "Prisioneira Do Amor", "Hulla Hulla", "Tempo Nublado", "Precisamos De Irmaos", and "Calma" – plus a nice cover of "And I Love Him". On Hoje E Primeiro, Lee is clearly the star of the show – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". On Atras Do Porto, Lee hits a sort of space rock sound, with a weird set of materials that sort of mixes an early 70's space rock guitar sound with Wings-like production for a more pop feel. Our Portuguese is terrible, so we can't read the lyrics and get hip to the concept, but the inside cover has the band looking kind of like refugees from Spinal Tap or something. With the cuts "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa". CD

Kevin Mahogany with Charles McPherson & Jimmy KnepPussy Cat Dues – The Music Of Charles Mingus ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1995. Used ... $4.99
A really unusual vocal tribute to the music of Charles Mingus – sung by the enigmatic Kevin Mahogany, and performed with the WDR Big Band with solos by ex-Mingusites Charles McPherson and Jimmy Knepper! Mingus isn't necessarily known for his vocal compositions, but the few songs he left behind in the format are incredibly compelling – tracks that express the deeper emotions and sentiments that bubble under the instrumental passages of his work. Mahogany sings Mingus' words on "Eclipse" and "Portrait", scats a bit on "Pussy Cat Dues", throws in Roland Kirk's lyrics to "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" to a larger "Mingus Medley", and sits things out for instrumental readings of "Reincarnation Of A Lovebird" and "Tonight At Noon".

Charles MingusLet My Children Hear Music/Charles Mingus & Friends In Concert (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. Used 3CD ... $16.99
A pair of 70s giants from Charles Mingus – some of his best material of the decade! First up is Let My Children Hear Music – one of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". Charles Mingus & Friends In Concert is a wonderful set – a double-length album that's great all the way through! Mingus live is always a treat – especially in these later years, when the fire seemed to go out of most of his studio recordings. Live, though, he always managed to kick it hard - with the sort of emotion that graced his strong early albums. And despite the fact that this one's conducted by Teo Macero, and features some remarks from Bill Cosby – the affair's still pretty hip, and the soloists go to town nicely – with those stretched-out performances that always made for the best individual moments in a Mingus record! The record features great work from Gene Ammons and Bobby Jones on tenor, Lee Konitz and Charles McPherson on alto, James Moody on flute, Randy Weston on piano, Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Eddie Bert on trombone – and Honey Gordon sings a lovely vocal on the track "Eclipse". Other titles include "Jump Monk", "Us Is Two", "ESP", and "Ecclusiastics". CD

Charles MingusMingus Revisited (aka Pre-Bird) ... CD
EmArcy/Polygram (Germany), 1960. Used ... $6.99
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of musical ideas that run from Charles' own highly political expressions of the Civil Rights era to some of his landmark explorations of Duke Ellington! As always, the individual players in the group are given a strong voice in the proceedings – and the record bristles with energy from solos by Ted Curson, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Yusef Lateef, and a young Joe Farrell – as well as vocal performances by Lorraine Cousins, who sings on the classic "Weird Nightmare" and the haunting "Eclipse". A tremendous record throughout – filled with life, imagination, and boundless creativity – with titles that include "Mingus Fingus no. 2", "Weird Nightmare", "Eclipse", "Bemoanable Lady", "Half Mast Inhibition", and "Prayer for Passive Resistance".

Charles Mingus/Jimmy KnepperDebut Rarities Vol 1 (Charles Mingus Octet/Jimmy Knepper Quintet) ... CD
Debut/OJC, 1953/1957. Used ... $8.99
Two rare slices of Charles Mingus from the 50s – back to back on a single CD! First up is a Charles Mingus Octet session, originally released as a 10" LP – and a date that shows some of the first complicated orchestrations from the legendary bassist! The music here already has the creatively complex feel of Mingus' better-known mid 50s sessions – like the Jazz Composers Workshop date on Savoy, or the Bethlehem sides – and the interplay between the horn work is really amazing, and worth the price of admission itself! Players include Willie Dennis on trombone, Teo Macero on tenor, Eddie Caine on alto and flute, Ernie Royal on trumpet, and Danny Bank on baritone. Nadi Qamar conducts, and other players include John Lewis on piano, Mingus on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – and Janet Thurlow sings on two titles, "Blue Tide" and "Eclipse". Other tracks include "Miss Bliss", "Pink Topsy", and the CD also features 2 alternates too. Jimmy Knepper heads the next date – a rare 10" outing from 1957, with some killer horn work throughout! The group's a quintet – and the album's easily one of Knepper's most hard-burning, thanks in part to some sharp alto lines from the great Joe Maini, a player we can never get enough of! The rest of the group features Bill Triglia on piano, Mingus on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums – and titles include "Cunningbird", "The Masher", "Latter Day Saint", and "The Jumpin Blues" – plus four more bonus alternate takes.

Osaka MonaurailRiptide ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Tremendous work from one of our favorite funk combos ever – Japan's legendary Osaka Monaurail, easily one of the sharpest, tightest, most soulful groups of the past 20 years! These guys have a really no-nonsense approach to funk – from the top to the bottom, from the execution to the production, from the street to the speaker – with a sound that's one of the few to really get a pure approach to the best funky 45 material of the late 60s and early 70s! There's no hoke, no easy references, no simplistic retro sensibilities – just rock-solid, razor-sharp instrumentation – at a level to match the James Brown band on late 60s King Records – who are clearly an inspiration for the crew. This set's got all their best funky 45 energy firmly intact, but also features a few longer numbers with sweet solos too – and as usual, the vocals are completely unique – raw funk, but with an accented twist that really grabs us. Titles include "(She's A) Riptide", "The Horse", "Liberty", "Solar Eclipse", "Calinga", "Fruit Basket", and "Determination". CD

Eric SidayUltra Sonic Perception ... CD
Berry/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". CD

Caetano VelosoMultishow Ao Vivo – Abracaco ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. Used ... $16.99
Caetano Veloso looks like a bit of an old geezer on the back cover of this live set – but damn if he isn't still one of the most exciting talents in the world, even alongside most of the contemporary generation too! The performance is a concert that's very much in the spirit of the studio album Abracao – and the two wonderful records that preceded it – music that's easily some of the most inventive, creative, and immediately appealing that Caetano Veloso has ever recorded – at a level that easily sums up all his past genius in a range of styles, but finds a way to fuse the whole thing down to a very focused core. The vocals alone are wonderful – that haunting style that Veloso really seemed to develop strongly after his years in London – and the instrumentation is often spare and simple, but with these great little twists and turns – especially on the rhythms and phrasing. And despite what must be a relatively large venue, Veloso preserves this sense of intimacy throughout – really reminding us of his undeniable pull, not just in Brazilian culture, but around the globe as well. Titles include "Homem", "Quando", "Um", "Lindeza", "Reconvexo", "Voce", "A", "Funk", "Alguem", and "Eclipse". CD
