✨✧ Sam PrekopComma (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A compelling step forward for Sam Prekop – a key member of Sea & Cake for many years, but maybe an even more engaging artist on his own! This set's different than some of Sam's previous records – in that it's all electric, really electronic – with modes that hearken back to early ambient experiments, and some of the Japanese work of the 80s – but which also ties things in more strongly to the crucial contemporary vibe of his scene! These aren't retro electronic modes – as some are freewheeling in rhythm, almost evoking the early Thrill Jockey records of Oval – while others are tuneful and more direct, but still with edges around the sides – a subtle rasp that makes it clear that the record is as much a project of Prekop the visual artist as it is the musician. Titles include "Comma", "September Remember", "Never Met", "Above Our Heads", "Circle Line", "Summer Places", "The New Last", and "Park Line". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyMusic You All ... LP
Capitol, 1971. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from the same sessions that gave the world Cannonball Adderley's classic Black Messiah album – live material from an extended stretch as the Troubadour club in LA – featuring a very righteous, freewheeling version of Cannonball's group! The lineup features some wonderful work on Fender Rhodes from George Duke – who brings a more soulful, spiritual current to the proceedings than Joe Zawinul did in earlier years – a really commanding presence that hints at his brewing solo fame, and which is a very welcome addition to the core lineup, which also includes Cannon on soprano and alto, and brother Nat on cornet! The performance also fetaures some great guest work from Ernie Watts on tenor and Airto on percussion – who really help round out the long tunes on the set. David Axelrod produced – leaving some nice room for Adderley's key spoken bits – and titles include the 12 minute groover "The Brakes", plus "Oh Babe", "Music You All", and "Capricorn" – plus a sweet take on "Walk Tall", which really has Duke stomping away on the Rhodes!

✨✧ Roy AyersYou Might Be Surprised ... LP
Columbia, 1985. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Roy Ayers in a tight mid 80s funk mode – commanding a modern vibe really well, especially with his vibes so prominent in the sound! Although the sound's a step or two more modern than the Polydor years, Roy still sounds great – and he grooves nicely on this batch of tracks that mix his older jazz funk style with an 80s groove sound that has slight touches of electro. This mix of modes is really unique for the time, with Roy embracing the new school without completely letting go of his trailblazing personal approach. Jean Carn sings lead vocals on the cut "Can I See You", and the album also includes the nice stepper "Programmed For Love", plus "Virgo", "Night Flyte", and "For You", a smooth mellow cut that's got great vocals by Roy!

✨✧ Matt BerryBlue Elephant (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Acid Jazz (UK), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The music of Matt Berry just keeps getting better and better – to a point where he's almost creating a parallel career to his work on screen – one that's equally great, but which is completely different overall! Berry brought out a wealth of vintage keyboards for the record – pulled from his huge collection – and he mixes those with subtle work on guitar, and guest drums and percussion – all in this swirling blend of sounds that really surpasses the instrumentation of any of his previous work! The set's much more instrumental than vocal – which is maybe part of the charm – and Berry's turned out to be a hell of a musician, as well as a great producer – as he manages to make the record resonate with just the right currents of contemporary psych, but without ever overindulging in that approach. At times, his command of a variety of instruments handled just by himself in the studio seems to rival the work of Sean O'Hagan – and titles include "I Cannot Speak", "Summer Sun", "Safer Passage", "Now Disappear", "Alone", "Blues Inside Me", "Like Stone", "Forget Me", and "Invisible".

✨✧ Jerry ButlerGolden Hits Live (second cover) ... LP
Mercury, 1968. Very Good+ ... $5.99
The wonderful thing about this one is that the album allows you to hear how great Jerry could be in any setting – even without the fabulous studio work that graced most of his classic hits. Jerry emerges here as a masterful entertainer, with a rich command of both his talents, and the audience in front of him. No schmaltz, though – and the record features nice versions of "Moon River", "He Will Break Your Heart", "Amen", "For Your Precious Love", and "I Stand Accused" – most clearly recorded live so that Mercury would at least have versions of them in the catalog to compete with the Vee Jay recordings.

✨✧ John CaleAcademy In Peril (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/4 Men With Beards, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
One of the coolest, most unusual albums ever from the great John Cale – a set that draws strongly on his roots in the New York underground of the mid 60s – including time spent with Tony Conrad and other experimentalists! The record is almost all instrumental – and has Cale mixing modes that include spare passages that are very evocative and contemplative, with fuller orchestral outbursts that are somewhere in the territory of his material with Terry Riley, but more freewheeling and less minimalist overall. Piano is the main instrument on many numbers, and Cale stuns us with his command of the keyboard – and the album features one striking vocal performance on the song "King Harry", alongside other titles that include "The Philosopher", "Brahms", "Legs Larry At Television Centre", "John Milton", and "Intro/Days Of Steam".

El RegoEl Rego ... LP
Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

Betty EverettIt's In His Kiss (Shoop-Shoop) ... LP
Vee Jay, 1964. Very Good- ... $14.99
A key set of early work from Betty Everett – and a great document of the strength of her early soul on Vee Jay! Although the title hit is quite familiar (and possibly a bit overplayed), Betty was a great vocalist with a wide command of material even at this early point in her career – and the album has her running through numbers that easily step between jazzy, bluesy, and soulful modes that beautifully bridge the worlds of soul and R&B! You might want to skip past the title hit, lest it color your judgment of the record, because there are loads of nice tracks on here, like "It Hurts To Be In Love", "Until You Were Gone", "The Prince of Players", and "I Need You So".

Ryo FukuiScenery ... LP
We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Lyrical magic from pianist Ryo Fukui – a lost gem from the Japanese scene of the 70s, and a beautifully flowing album throughout! Fukui's got a wide-open touch to the piano that we totally love – and is easily one of the best of his contemporaries on the Japanese trio scene of the time – working in the open-ended mode that was allowed by labels in Tokyo during the 70s, a style that was never too far outside, but which really allowed the pianist to soar with a driving, rhythmic intensity. There's a bit of a modal groove to some of the tracks on the album, but more than that, there's just a beautiful sense of freedom – a love of sound and texture that's never reduced to mere experimentation, and which has Ryo taking full command of the keys to soar to the skies on waves of acoustic soul. The group on the set features Yoshinori Fukui on drums and Satoshi Denpo on bass – and tracks include "I Want To Talk About You", "Scenery", "Autumn Leaves", "Early Summer", and "It Could Happen To You".

✨✧ Benny GolsonOne More Mem'ry (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Baystate (Japan), 1981. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A really beautiful Japanese-only session from Benny Golson – and proof that, throughout the years, Golson could always continue to turn out wonderful material! Benny's working here with old bandmate Curtis Fuller on trombone – and the pair are supported by a trio who include Bill Mays on piano, Bob Magnusson on bass, and Roy McCurdy on drums – all held wonderfully in command by Golson, who's working here with a tightness that recalls Jazztet years, yet which also has him and Fuller opening up in nice long solos. There's a sense of warmth here that crackles wonderfully – that raspy Golson tone that we first grew to love in the late 50s, and which has only deepened with age by this point. The set includes the wonderful original tune "One More Mem'ry", plus great versions of Golson's "Sad To Say", "Touch Me Lightly", "Five Spot After Dark", "Once Again", and "Out Of The Past".

Green DayNimrod ... LP
Reprise/Rhino, 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 25.98
Green Day as in command of killer hooks and stomping choruses as ever! Nimrod was bit underappreciated by longtime fans growing weary of Green Day's aging process towards the late 90s, but it's got a well earned and slowly built reputation as a fan favorite nowadays. With the formula of unapologetically appropriated craft well in place – proudly working in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" school of pop punk – there's some pretty smart and honest vulnerability in the lyrics, with the fellas well aware that getting older doing what they do is a tricky thing to pull off. Given that they're as popular as ever deep in the next millennium, they clearly got it right! Includes "Nice Guys Finish Last", "Hitchin' A Ride", "Redundant", "All The Time", "Jinx", "Reject", "King For A Day", "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Dick HymanAge Of Electronicus ... LP
Command/Pleasure For Music, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $20.99
One of the all-time great moog albums of the 60s – served up by pianist Dick Hyman, who'd cut a fair bit of more standard material in the years before – but who also turned out to be a wizard with the new electric instrument, helping it to find a very fresh sound! Unlike some of the more offbeat moogy records of the time, Hyman's approach focuses right in on the groove – using lots of influences from both soul and pop, but also exploding the electronics at a level that take the moog way past some of the more simple moog cover records of the period. Titles include the very funky club cut "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" – plus "Both Sides Now", "Kolumbo", "Time Is Tight", and "Green Onions". LP, Vinyl record album

Not as "electro" as you might expect from the title, but a pretty nice little record from Dick! The album has Hyman playing Baldwin electric piano in front of larger orchestrations – running through a suite of tracks that move from jazz to classic to "rock" type rhythms – at the best moments soaring like some hip soundtrack tunes, and at the weaker ones, just sounding like spare jazz solo work. The album features one long piece of music, divided up into many moods and tones. LP, Vinyl record album

Pre-moog – but still very nice, and an album of oddly-arranged tracks that features Hyman on both organ and piano! The format's a straight trio, but the arrangements open the tracks up more than you expect – and take the songs past their simple cover versions. Includes a groovy version of "Ode to Billy Joe", plus "Respect" and "Groovin" – plus more obscure tracks like "House Of Mirrors" and "The Flower Road". Not a total breakbeat experience, but a nice bit of cheesy keyboards and some nice grooves! LP, Vinyl record album

Command, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $8.99
One of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me".

Excellent album that Harvey Fuqua put together with his old band during the time that he had emerged as a successful soul producer at RCA working with bands like The Nite Liters and The New Birth. The album features the group reprising some of their classic doo wop tracks, and giving them a 70's edge with the help of a small combo that includes Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and Vernon Bullock. One highlight includes a great remake of "Sincerely" that has a nice break and a good groove to it. Other goodies are "The Ten Commandments", and "Most Of All". Better than you'd think!

✨✧ Evan ParkerCollected Solos (Saxophone Solos/Monoceros/Six Of One/The Snake Decides) (4LP & cassette set) ... LP
Incus/OTOroku (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4LP & Cassette (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Four crucial albums from reed genius Evan Parker – brought together here in a limited, numbered set – with rare material on a bonus cassette, and a signed booklet of notes! First up is Saxophone Solos – completely unfettered solo saxophone work from Evan Parker – extremely intense, but not in an all-out blowing kind of way! Instead, Parker's got some incredible control on the valves here – playing with a frenetic sort of mode that's really incredible – freely improvising, but also really jamming too, with a dexterity that's simply amazing. That mix is what really set Parker apart from some of his contemporaries – a player who could be extremely sensitive at points, but also go head to head with some of the more fiercely-blown saxophonists of the European scene – and it's also a quality that's continued to make Parker so important as the decades move on. Titles include "Aerobatics 1", "Aerobatics 2", "Aerobatics 3", and "Aerobatics 4". Monoceros features Evan Parker, playing solo soprano sax – and recorded in a unique way that cuts his performance directly onto disc, which results in really stunning sound! The textures of Parker's music here are wonderful – bold notes mixed with more obscure sonic statements – all beautifully captured by the recording style, which features a solo microphone in the space of a room – so that the resonances of the reed lines are also reflected as they flow out into three dimensions. And unlike some other Parker material of this nature, the whole thing is very spontaneous and soulful – never too dry or academic, and much more with the vibrancy of Steve Lacy in a similar setting. Six Of One is another album of soprano sax – used exclusively by Evan Parker on the six improvised tracks on the set – each one very different than the other, and really showing the diversity and variation that Parker can bring to a performance! Often, the sound is very dense – tones and notes flowing effortlessly on top of one another – but clearly with this ear for sounds that often go beyond music, and a command of the instrument that rivals that of Steve Lacy in a similar setting – almost as if the record is Evan Parker's way of trying to claim a soprano saxophone title in the world of improvised music! The Snake Decides is an insanely wonderful piece of work from saxophonist Evan Parker – and maybe the record that will really have you deciding that Parker's a genius! The set is all solo soprano sax, recorded live in St Paul's church in Oxford – which creates this really rich sense of sound – but unlike other soprano solo records of this nature, the style is incredibly energetic and freewheeling – the sorts of long-spun, heavily blown lines you'd usually hear from a tenorist – and which really have us amazed at Parker's creativity, dexterity, and just all-out wind power too! The record might well be noteworthy for Evan's sense of breathing alone – as the music never seems to stop, as notes flow effortlessly from his fingertips – but there are sonic qualities that really send the album home, and which show why Parker was one of the greatest British improvising talents of the 80s. Titles include "The Snake Decides", "Buriden's Ass", "Haine's Last Tape", and "Leipzig Folly". Cassette features 10 tracks, all different "Aerobatics" recordings – done by Parker in the FMP studios in 1974! LP, Vinyl record album

The strong second album from Penny Penny – a set that has the South African singer emerging as even more of a superstar than before – as you might guess from his look on the cover! The style is this unique blend of older South African vocal modes with more contemporary club elements – particular some of the deeper bass bits introduced by the house music generation – used here in ways that are slower than house, but definitely echo the same way – especially with the lower-end pulsations of the keyboard! Penny Penny has this very commanding way of calling out a tune – the sort that made him a big draw across the African concert scene during the decade – on titles that include "Yogo Yogo", "Ibola Aids", "Ingani", "Amarumasi", "Ama Owners", "Ti Samboko", and "Kulani Kulani".

Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
A really striking mid 80s effort from the legendary Lee Scratch Perry – done at a time when his name and reputation had risen strongly on the global scene – which also seems to come through in the music as well! There's a wider range of styles going on here than before – and Scratch is more upfront, less hidden behind his own production – feeling that sense of mission as a messenger for madness that he seemed to take up at the time – a quality that comes through both in his lyrics and vocals, and in the nicely mish-mashed production as well! The set is credited to The Upsetters, but not the classic lineup – more a cast of characters behind much of the classic Black Ark material, though in good command of Scratch's brand of funky reggae. Titles include "Introducing Myself", "Time Marches On", "The Joker", "All Things Are Possible", "Grooving", "Drum Song", "I Am A Madman", "Show Me That River", and "Sexy Lady".

Baden's playing in a mostly unaccompanied setting for the session – working through some tunes that are markedly gentler than his bossa era numbers, but which demonstrate an amazing command of the acoustic guitar – a fragile, yet moving sensibility that's beautifully recorded throughout. A few tracks feature light percussion, or a bit of bass – but Baden's solo guitar is in the front of the mix throughout – on titles that include "Bassamba", "Brasiliana", "Fim Da Linha", "Marcia Eu Te Amo", "Na Gafiera Do Vidigal", and "Chara".

That thunderous voice toasting over the rhythms is as incredible as ever – over the commanding bass of Professor Larry Silvera, tripped out drums & percussion by Jah Lloyd & Scully, occasional swirling keys by Steely, Tarzan and Tony Asher and the other great Channel One players.

The set brings together the older Hal Russell – still an underground secret in the city – and the younger Mars Williams, who was just starting out here, but would soon rise to fame in the NRG Ensemble, and on decades of other recordings and alliances in the Windy City. There's a mix of instrumentation that really shows the open-minded sense of improvisation that Russell helped encourage in the younger Generations – and Hal plays drums, C melody sax, cornet, vibes, toy horns, and "lots of other stuff" – with Mars Williams playing tenor sax, slide whistles, bells, newspapers, and "lots of other stuff" too!

A stellar batch of Afro funk and native groove from Lagos! Strains of western funk and soulful sounds work their way into the material – thanks again to Fela's mighty influence – but there's a lot more to it! Simmering along with the Afro funk and soul are some truly riveting native folk sounds – filtered through many of the modern influence that make the funk stuff so compelling – but providing a much more natively learned groove.

VariousLife Aquatic – Original Soundtrack (blue vinyl pressing) (2021 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Hollywood, 2004. New Copy 2LP ... On November 26, 2021
The soundtrack to the second most underrated of Wes Anderson's films – the strangely wonderful seafaring adventure the Life Aquatic! The heart of the album is the delicate, beautiful solo acoustic covers of David Bowie tunes by Brazil's Seu Jorge – plus some great synth and symph scoring by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh. Seu commandeers "Rebel Rebel", "Life On Mars", "Starman" and "Five Years" – his gruff, but sweet vocals crooning mostly in Portugese, while Bowie's instantly identifiable melodies easily float to the surface. Mothersbaugh's soundtrack compositions get better and more extroverted with each project, this one branching off from the faux stuffy baroque touches he spun so wonderfully on Rushmore and the Royal Tennenbaums, and even cooking up some blunt, old school synthesizer noisiness that'll please the Spuds! This being a Wes Anderson film, there's some leftfield hits and pop oddities, too. 20 tracks in all, including score pieces, the Jorge/Bowie tunes, plus "Shark Attack Theme" and more by Sven Libaek, "La Nina De Puerta Oscura" by Paco De Lucia, "Search And Destroy" by Iggy & The Stooges, "30 Century Man" by Scott Walker, "Gut Feeling" by Devo and more. As was the case with Anderson's Bottlerocket, the film's critics will slowly shrink into silence over the next few years and the Life Aquatic will be very fondly remembered.
