Romano MussoliniJazz Allo Studio 7 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Ricordi/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
His father was a dictator, but we can hardly hold that against him – because with records like this, Romano Mussolini's made his family name stand as much for jazz as it has for European conquest! The set's a killer from some of Romano's greatest years – a trio set at the core, handled with a sound that's decidedly soulful – thanks to killer rhythms from Carlo Loffredo on bass and Franco Tonani on drums – augmented by some wonderful work on most tracks from Italian jazz all-stars, including Cicci Santucci on trumpet, Enzo Scoppa on tenor, Dino Piana on trombone, and Gianni Sanjust on clarinet! Mussolini leads the group with a great sense of energy – the tightness of the bop generation, but the more spacious swing of the soul jazz scene as well – and titles include "Nice Day", "Yes Boy", "Jordu", "Full Di Dame", "Ella Red Blues", "That's All", and "Moanin".

SarachoEn Medio ... LP
Impulse, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A nice little album, and one with a very messed up Latin groove – one that's partly funky Impulse, partly Chicano soul. Gary Saracho leads the group on acoustic and electric piano – and the rest of the ensemble includes soprano sax, electric guitar, timbales, bass, and an assortment of other odd instrumentation, like oboe. Very hard to pigeonhole, but a nice record if you dig unconventional grooves – especially the sort from the crossover years of the early 70s. Titles include "Happy, Sad", "Sunday's Church", "Senor Baker", and "Conquest De Mejico". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousComplete Fame Singles Vol 1 – 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99
Legendary work from one of the greatest soul labels ever – a tiny Alabama imprint that helped bring the Muscle Shoals sound to the masses – thanks to the work of producer Rick Hall, and his crack band of session players! The music here set a whole new standard for soul in the south – and really helped bridge older 50s modes and the new wave of more expressive, more sophisticated singers – an evolution that you'll really hear over the span of the label's complete singles, even in this first volume. A few names here are big – like Jimmy Hughes and Arthur Conley – but there's also some great lesser-knowns that really make the collection great – some singers we never even knew recorded for Fame, and a few session players as stars on their own – like Dann Penn or Spooner Oldham. Titles include "Wish You Didn't Have To Go" by Spooner & The Spoons, "Party Talk" by June Conquest, "She Wants What She Can't Have" by Terry Woodford, "You're Gonna Lose That Girl" by The Villagers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "You Can't Believe Everything You Hear" by Jimmy Hughes, "The Road Of Love" by Clarence Carter, "Take A Good Look" by James Barnett, "Let Them Talk" by Dann Penn, "A Piece Of My Heart" by Art Freeman, and "Time Will Bring You Back" by Jimmy Hughes. 52 tracks in all – with both a and b-sides too!

VariousHall Of Fame 2 – More Rare & Unissued Gems From The Fame Vaults ... CD
Fame/Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... $12.99
We can't get enough of Fame Records – that legendary powerhouse of southern soul in the 60s and 70s – and fortunately, the vaults of the studios have finally been opened after all these decades – and we're really getting the full picture of all the genius that went down in Muscle Shoals! This tremendous little package is essential southern soul listening for both the collector and newcomer – a whopping 24 tracks that virtually define the sound of the genre at its height – handled perfectly by producer Rick Hall and his core combo of crack musicians – working way past cliche to create some tremendous music on the set! A few of the artists here are names you'll know from Fame hits, a few more are lesser-knowns from the scene at the time – and a few more are even completely unknown – singers who weren't listed on the master tapes or studio records, but who are issued here because their vocals are so great. Titles include "Long Ago" by Ben & Spence, "It Tears Me Up" by James Barnett, "Take Me Back" by George Jackson, "Unfortunately" by Jackie, "Have Pity On Me" by Billy Young, "Don't Let It Be Sad" by June Conquest, "Fool For A Woman" by Prince Phillip, "Take It All Off" by Clarence Carter, "Are You Teasing Me" by Linda Carr, "I Can't Stop" by Big Ben Atkins, "Get In A Hurry" by Joe Simon, and "Midnight Affair" by George Soule.

Prince Far ICry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 3 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... On October 30, 2015
Third in the four chapter set of dub LPs produced by the great Prince Far I in collaboration with a young Adrian Sherwood, but we suppose that was obvious by the title. This set finds the British upstart dub producer taking over a bit more from Far I, though the Voice Of Thunder presence can be felt in the hardcore rhythms pulsing underneath. Includes a cast of many of the characters who would later go on to form the axis of the On-U rhytm section when they were still shuttling between Roots Radics and other Kingston gigs and UK work, like Style Scott, Flabba Holt and Bingy Bunny, as well as some appearances from post puink UK leftfield, like the Slits' Ari Up, plus Stever Beresford and David Toop. Top notch rhythms get the deep space modern dub treatment, like "Back Weh", "Plant Up", "Mansion Of Invention","Shake the Nation", "Homeward Bound", "The Conquest" and "Low Gravity".

✨✧ William ParkerFor Those Who Are – Still (3CD set) ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2015. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful box of work from bassist William Parker – and a set that actually features three very different projects, all brought together in a single set! First up is a CD that features a long piece commissioned by The Kitchen – "For Fannie Lou Hamer" – with music by Parker in an ensemble that includes JD Parran on reeds, Ravi Best on trumpet, Masahiko Kono on trombone, and a bit of vocals from Leena Conquest. That same CD features shorter pieces grouped under the title Vermeer – dedicated to the painter, and featuring some beautiful, soulful work from Parker on bass, Darryl Foster on soprano sax, Eri Yamamoto on piano, and Leena Conquest on voice. CD two features Red Giraffe With Dreadlocks – a lot better than it sounds from the title, and spiritual sounds from an ensemble that mixes core jazz elements with some wider global musical ideas – featuring Parker on bass, Hamid Drake on drums, Rob Brown on alto, Bill Cole on double reed instruments, Klaas Heckman on flute, Molla Sylla on mbira and ngoni, and Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay on electronic shruti box. Both Sylla and Bandyopadhyay vocalize a bit – and titles include "The Giraffe Cances", "Where Do You Send The Poem", "Tour Of The Flying Poem", and "Souls Have Fallen Like Rain". Last is Ceremonies For Those Who Are Still – which features a core trio with Parker on bass and flutes, Charles Gayle on piano and saxes, and Mike Reed on drums – augmented by the NFM Orchestra, who shade in the jazz performances with some subtle colors and tones – quite an unusual match between these talents. The CD also features a long improvisation – "Escapade For Sonny" – running over 25 minutes, and just featuring the core trio of Parker, Gayle, and Reed. Packaged in a very nice box, with a booklet of notes! CD
