Numero, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 29.98
One of the great lost groups of the UK scene of the 60s – not lost to UK audiences, or to hipsters over the generations – but still an act that never made the impact on these shores that they should! The Creation are step in step right up there with early material by The Who or Small Faces – and share a similar groundbreaking re-fusion of American roots into a new London groove – all with searing guitars, clever wordplay, and a cutting-edge spirit that may well have kept them off our charts – but which makes them so great to discover all these many years later. You might have caught a few of their songs over the years – thanks to soundtrack placement from directors like Wes Anderson, or covers by many of their bigger fans. This 2CD set features 46 tracks in all, with remastering overseen by original producer Shel Talmy – and the set includes early sides by The Mark Four, some alternate takes, and even new mixes – plus an 80 page hardcover book with scores of photos, other images, session and discographical details, and a new essay too.

One of the coolest cuts ever from The Creation – a mod riffing romper that will demand play after play, once you finish the very first spin! The lyrics are recorded with this fantastic Shel Talmy spaced out production – and the flipside features a rare instrumental, which lets you focus even more on the riffing guitar!

9th CreationBubble Gum ... LP
Rite Track, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California funk acts of the time – especially Pleasure, who with their sharp sense of a groove are probably the closest comparison to the group's sound. The album is best known for the cut "Bubble Gum" – a great number with lots of jazzy changes, and a modern funky groove that still sounds pretty darn fresh – but the whole album is totally great, and filled with plenty of other songs that have the same feel as the title cut! Tracks include "Sexy Girl", "Quit It", "Falling In Love", "We Need Love", and "Rule Of Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying ... LP
Numero, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A record that definitely lives up to the promise of its cover – especially the creepy image of a skeleton shooting up on the front! Bulbous Creation hail from the same Kansas scene documented on Numero's Cavern Sound compilation – but unlike some of the other groups, they've got more than enough going on to offer up a full album here – a really heady, tripped-out batch of music that may well be some of the weirdest ever recorded in that legendary cave in Missouri! The production is almost a bit muddy at times – or maybe it's the way the instruments are performed – which creates this even more sinister feel to the whole thing – as if you've surprised the group during a very private moment, or stumbled upon them performing some ritual in the woods! The song titles say an awful lot about the record, too – and include "Satan", "Hooked", "Under The Black Sun", "Fever Machine Man", and "End Of The Page". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat BirchallCreation ... CD
Sound Soul & Spirit (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
Reedman Nat Birchall has been delighting our ears for almost a decade now – and during all that time, we've just grown more and more in love with his music – and continue to feel that he's one of the crowning jazz talents of our generation! Birchall belongs in the same spiritual territory as John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders – and as with both of them, he already started out great, then evolved to a point where he's completely sublime – as you'll hear on this wonderfully well-crafted album! Nat's every bit as righteous in his blowing as before – both on tenor and soprano sax – but the overall sound is even more far-reaching, especially in the way the long tunes unfold with majestic piano work from Adam Fairhall – who sets things up beautifully throughout, and really underscores the soul in Birchall's reeds. The group also features bassist Michael Bardon – plus two drummers, Johnny Hunter and Andy Hay, who each get their own channel on the mix. All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Ocean Of Truth", "Love In The Cosmos", "Through The Darkness", "Peace Be Unto Us", and "Light Of All Worlds". CD

Danser's Inferno (John Danser)Creation One ... LP
Lirs/Everland (Austria), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
That's "Danser", not "dancer" – as in John Danser, who's also best known for a groovy jazz album under his own name! This sweet little set from the early 70s may well be John's best album ever – a wonderful blend of funky grooves and these wonderful raspy vocals – completely charming, and with a quality that's hard to describe, but really really great! There's a wickedly offbeat feel to the record that keeps us coming back – at some level the funky big band grooves of the MPS 70s generation, but mixed with a more sensitive independent American vibe too – especially given that some of the lyrics remind us a bit of Matthew Larkin Cassell. Danser plays tenor, and leads the group – the vocal cuts (about half the album's tracks) feature Randy Maddison singing. Titles include the classic "Sombre Guitar", plus "Inferno", "And Once My Love", "Badinage", "Time Is Laughing", "Sunday Morning", and "Turning The Corner". LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus HarleyRe-Creation Of The Gods ... LP
Ankh, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the most legendary albums of jazz funk ever recorded! Rufus Harley was a saxophone player who also picked up the bagpipes for a few excellent 60s albums for Atlantic Records – and although those records are great, this 1972 independent album is a real mind blower! By the time of this set, Rufus had really stretched out – both creatively and spiritually – working his standard bagpipe jazz groove into a much trippier sound, one that explored the tonal and modal properties of the instrument. Not only that, Rufus got a lot funkier than ever before – working here with organist Bill Mason, a sonic contemporary of Leon Spencer and Charles Earland – and the resultant mix of organ and bagpipes creates a monstrous sound that's unlike anything we can describe! The album's a mixture of Sufi and Biblical statements – fused into long funky jazz tracks, stretching out into some incredible grooves. Includes the classic "Malika", plus the cuts "Etymology", "Hypothesis", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", done in a great heavy version! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oliver LakeNTU – Point From Which Creation Begins ... LP
Passin' Thru/Arista, 1971. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Reedman Oliver Lake at his most creative – stepping out here on a sublime set of 70s improvisations – all put together with a really spiritual feel! There's a very open, collaborative feel to the music – and the set was recorded in St Louis, at a time when Lake was a key part of that city's scene – and who here also seems able to attract some other musicians from the AACM in Chicago as well! As a result, the album's a wonderful document of the new ideas bursting forth at the start of the 70s – that richly creative moment when local scenes were coming together in various cities to find new ways of jazz beyond Coltrane and Dolphy – giving a player like Lake some of the most imaginative outlets of his career. Oliver plays alto, soprano, flute, and other small instruments – and other players include Baikida Carroll and Floyd Leflore on trumpets, Joseph Bowie on trombone, John Hicks on piano, Clovis Bordeaux on electric piano, Don Officer on bass, Charles Bobo Shaw on drums, and Don Moye on congas too. Titles include "Africa", "Tse Lane", "Eriee", "Zip", and "Electric Freedom". LP, Vinyl record album

WerwolfCreation ... LP
Long Hair (Germany), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
An overdue debut from this obscure German combo – a set that wasn't recorded until the early 80s, even though the group had been making music throughout most of the previous decade! As such, there's an unusual sound to the record – 70s prog elements, but maybe refined a bit more for the recording – still with all the freewheeling instrumental passages you'd expect, but also maybe unwrapped in different ways. There's a female singer who joins in at times, and the keyboards are maybe a bit leaner than most Krautrock from a decade before – but still have a lot more range and warmth than the kind of keyboards most other groups were using in the 80s. Titles include "Der Achte Tag", "Daydream", "The Game Is Over", "Hohenflug", and "Way To Paradise". LP, Vinyl record album

Gestalten (Germany), 2013. New Copy ... $10.99 39.95
A very cool project from the Red Bull Music Academy – a surprisingly strong force in recent years for bringing together a range of different musical strands! The book features pairings of two different artists or musicians – each talking with the other about their music, the process of creation, and a range of different topics too – all on large, full-color pages that present the text in artbook style – which makes the whole thing as much of a visual joy as it is a musical one! Conversations include Bernard Purdie talking with Jaki Liebezeit, Martyn Ware and Nile Rodgers, Joao Barbosa with Mulatu Astatke & Kalaf Angelo, Benny Ill with Moritz Von Oswald, Matais Aguayo with Sly & Robbie, Ben UFO with DJ Harvey, Erykah BAdu with The Underachievers, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void, and Modeselektor with Mykki Balanco. There's also a range of additional essays, too – penned by some of the above, as well as Patrick Adams, Adrian Sherwood, Lee Scratch Perry, and others – and the book is massive – hardcover, oversize, and a heavy 396 pages.

Crazy World Of Arthur BrownCrazy World Of Arthur Brown ... LP
Track, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
A wild, far reaching psychedelic rock kaleidoscope from Arthur Brown and his Crazy World! The sounds range from wailing organs and heavy drum backed bigness, to more of a tightly grooving r&b garage influenced trip as the core backdrop – with vocals ranging from falsetto freakouts to rambling speak singing craziness and bursts of brass. Nothing's predictable from one passage to the next, but the group sets a heady groove before it all gets freaky, and they find it again before insanity sets in. Titles include "Prelude-Nightmare", "Fire", "Come & Buy", "Spontaneous Apple Creation", "Child Of My Kingdom", "I Put A Spell On You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Gary BurtonSomething's Coming/Groovy Sound Of Music/Time Machine ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1964/1965/1966. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of excellent Gary Burton albums from the 60s – collected together in a single set! Something's Coming is the launch of vibist Gary Burton as a leader – a force in jazz that would continue strongly for decades to come! At the time of the record, Burton had already been making waves as a session player on the Nashville scene – where RCA had some especially strong ears – but he's launched here in a mode that's quite far from those roots, and already filled with those modern, chromatic modes that would have Burton pushing the sound of the vibes forward strongly throughout his career – even on an early record like this! The group is very like-minded, and well-chosen – players who are spacious and modern, but never too much so – a quartet with Jim Hall on guitar, Chuck Israels on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Melanie", "Careful", "Six Improvisatory Sketches", "Something's Coming", and "Little Girl Blue". Next up is a very cool take on the music of Sound Of Music – handled with some help from arranger Gary McFarland, in a way that really unlocks the modal potentials of the tunes! As you might expect from the revolutionary vibist Gary Burton, the approach here is quite different than the usual jazz album of Broadway material – and instead, both Burton and McFarland do a heck of a lot to open up the coolest potential of the songs – as they bring in other hip players who include Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Phil Woods on alto, Joe Puma on guitar, and Steve Swallow on bass. Titles include "An Ordinary Couple", "Sixteen Going On Seventeen", "Do Re Mi", "Edelweiss", and a great take on "My Favorite Things". Time Machine is filled with beautiful sounds from Gary Burton – a seminal 60s session that really has the vibist coming into his own, and finding that new path towards musical expression that would flower even more strongly in the 70s! The album has Burton really strengthening up his sense of chrome – matching the boldness of other important 60s vibes players on the rise – like Karel Velebny or Bobby Hutcherson – but also working this really special magic in the way he lets each note resonate in the air – often with a much longer decay on the sound than the actual moment of its creation! Burton also plays a bit of piano on the record, overdubbed with his vibes – but in a way that's quite different than the vibes/piano combo of earlier acts – like the MJQ, or George Shearing Quintet – thanks to work from Steve Swallow on bass and Larry Bunker on percussion. Tracks include "Six Nix Quix Flix", "The Sunset Bell", "Deluge", "Chega De Saudade", and "Falling Grace". CD

Renee Hytry DerringtonFormica Forever ... Book
Metropolis, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 39.99
Formica may seem like an everyday surface to some – but at the time of its creation, it was a pretty revolutionary development – one that allowed household and business spaces to step free from longer-term care – giving the workers and residents lots more time to pursue their hopes and dreams! That bright promise of Formica is presented beautifully here – in a lovely history of the product, complete with dozens of vintage images that range from magazine ads to promotional flyers – to some higher-end projects in Formica from the art world! The book's beautiful – as stylish as an interior design magazine from the 60s – with a special color by color section in the middle, including writings by John Updike, Margarate Atwood, and others – on pages that are also perforated and can be folded! The first half of the book is in English, and awash with these images and text – and the second half offers more images, and text in six other languages. 408 pages, softcover, and beautiful color throughout!

Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99

Most folks know Luiz as the pianist and guiding force behind the Tamba Trio – but he's also got a legacy of songwriting, instrumentation, and musical creation that go beyond his recordings with that group – beautifully revived here by the younger Eca on bass, with help from an all-star lineup that includes Toninho Horta on guitar and vocals, Mauro Senise on flute and soprano sax, Itamar Assiere on piano, and Edu Lobo on vocals! Most titles are remakes of key compositions by Luiz Eca – and the style of the album is wonderful – like some of Eca's best work in the post-Tamba years. Titles include "Dolphin", "Imagem", "Alegria De Viver", "Tamba", "Buzios", "Mestre Bimba", and "Reencontro". CD

The record pushes past the easy Latin pop style of the late 60s, and features Jose working through hip rock tunes – both of his own creation, and by writers like Elton John and Cat Stevens. The real highlight of the album is an incredible reading of "Wild World" – done with a mix of fast guitar, strings, and even a bit of Brazilian-tinged scatting that breaks down in the middle and always makes us stop cold! The rest of the record's almost as good, and titles include "Daytime Dreams", "Mellow Feeling", "Come Down Jesus", "Pay Day", and "Only Once". LP, Vinyl record album

From ScratchFive Rhythm Works ... CD
EM (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
Fantastic percussion pieces from this ultra-cool New Zealand ensemble of the 70s – a group who take their name and inspiration from the Scratch Orchestra of Cornelius Cardew – but who also work in a more intimate setting, with lots of instruments of their own creation – with a vibe that sometimes reminds us of the music of Harry Party! Given the smallness of the NZ scene at the time, these guys were less of a high art ensemble, than the kind of creative criss-crossing of big ideas and grass roots expression – similar to that moment when the art and punk worlds worked together so strongly in late 70s New York. And the sound here would be right at home alongside some of the more creative artists from the Kitchen scene – as the group play, drum, and blow themselves through a wonderful array of rhythmic sounds! Titles include 'Out In Part", "Passage", "Drumwheel (part 2)", and passages from "Gung Ho". CD

A great little album by Terry Gibbs – one that's free from the gimmicks that could sometimes mar his other efforts, and which really lets the vibist get a chance to open up in a session of straight ahead tunes with a surprising degree of soul! The group on the set's a quartet – with Alice McCloud on piano, Herman Wright on bass, and John Dentz on drums – and all the tunes on the set are originals by Gibbs, with a level of imagination and melodic creation that we never would have expected from him! The whole thing's pretty darn great, and filled with interesting tracks that include "The Young Ones", "El Flippo", "The Nightie Night Waltz", "Little S", "Hey Pretty", and "Little C".

Eddie One String Jones/Edward HazeltonOne String Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Gazell, 1960. Used ... $7.99
An early album on John Fahey's Takoma label – and a set that maybe feels more like a Folkways record overall – given that it features street recordings of the enigmatic Eddie "One-String" Jones! Jones is a musician who really lives up to his name – by playing blues on this unusual one-stringed instrument of his own creation – which he uses with incredible soul and intonation along with his vocals – really able to work out all these textures and tones that almost make you forget that he's missing the other five strings you'd expect to hear on a guitar. Jones puts his string performance first, and augments it with vocals – on titles that include "One String Three Quartet Banjo Picker", "Come Back Baby", "I'll Be Your Chauffer", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "The Dozens". The album also features similarly spare material from Edward Hazelton – recorded at the same time by Frederick Usher – with an oddly spacious sound to the core instrument, and Hazelton's vocals as well. Titles include "Mocking The Train Mocking The Dogs", Poor Boy Traveling From Town To Town", and "Throw A Poor Dog A Bone". CD features five bonus tracks not on the original album! CD

Three more tracks – "Movement Equals Creation", "Intensity", and "Altoviolin" – feature Lake on alto, playing with a violin trio that sounds very dark and moody.

Killer Latin soul! This record is one of the hardest to find from the late 60's boogaloo era, and it's a massive stormer filled with tasty grooves! The band is small and tight, with a 2-sax frontline, for an extra-soulful sound. Vocals are in English and Spanish, and the album wails away like a siren out of control. Things kick off with the organ-heavy instrumental, "Camel Walk" – then they leap into one of the catchiest vocal numbers ever from Fania, the tasty "Afro-Shingaling" – which starts with Ray Ramirez shouting "I just come from Africa – and I learned to do the Shing-a-ling!"

Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1968. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
A hell of a stunner from The Move – the group's first full album, and a set that burns beautifully on so many different levels! The set's almost equal parts mod and psych – with all the sharpness of the former, and lots of the fuzz and inventive production of the latter – served up here at a level that few others could touch at the time – maybe The Who or The Creation at their best – both key contemporaries of The Move, although the group owe nothing to them at all, and stand strongly, brilliantly here on their own! The whole record is incredible – filled with excellent songs by Roy Wood, who also plays superb guitar throughout – with lead vocals from Carl Wayne, incredible production from Denny Cordell, and even some excellent arrangements from the young Tony Visconti. Every song is a gem – and titles include "Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree", "Yellow Rainbow", "Kilroy Was Here", "The Girl Outside", "Fire Brigade", "Cherry Blossom Clinic", "Mist On A Monday Morning", and "Useless Information". Plus, this 3CD version has a stunning amount of extra material – 52 bonus tracks that include "Vote For Me", "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", "Don't Hang Up", "Night Of Fear", "Disturbance", "You're The One I Need", "Winter Song", "The Fugitive", "Respectable", "Too Many Fish In The Sea", and "I Can't Hear You No More" – plus rare stereo mixes (the core album is in mono), and 19 more BBC sessions from 1967 and 1968 – performances on Top Gear, Easybeat, and Saturday Club.

Improvised electro-acoustic music from the Venezuela scene – a record that's been lost to the shifting sands of time, but which is every bit as mindblowing as any of the group's European predecessors – maybe even more so, given that the trio were working in relative obscurity, and without the usual sort of academic support! Musikautomatika is the trio of Luis Levin, Alvise Sacchi, and Stefano Gramitto – who blend together a wonderful array of electronics and acoustic elements – all with this long-spun sense of spontaneous creation that still has a very cohesive whole. Some moments are noisy, but the whole thing is far from the "noise" of later generations – and still have a very optimistic vibe and this great sense of discovery. LP, Vinyl record album

Naz Nomad & The Nightmares (The Damned)Give Daddy The Knife Cindy ... LP
Big Beat/Ace (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Looks like a 60s soundtrack, but the set's actually an unusual psychedelic project by The Damned – released as if the whole thing was a record designed to accompany one of those schlocky AIP exploitation films from years back – but actually better than most of those albums from a musical perspective! Given that the whole thing was recorded in 1983, it's actually surprisingly powerful stuff – and seems to preface the big wave of UK sounds from the Creation Records scene – a surprising move for The Damned, but one that comes off surprisingly well. Singer Naz Nomad is actually Dave Vanian – and tracks include covers of songs that the group loved, plus originals of their own. Titles include "Action Woman", "The Wind Blows Your Hair", "Kicks", "Cold Turkey", "She Lied", "I Can't Stand This Love Goodbye","The Trip", and "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night".

Sahr Ngaujah Vs Superhuman HappinessGravity/String Theory ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2010. New Copy (pic cover)... $1.99
A really cool avant single that's unlike anything else! It's from Sierra Leone-born vocalist Sahr Ngaujah and collaborator Stuart Bogie of Antibalas – both of whom work in the Broadway production Fela! – but Sahr Ngaujah Vs Superhuman Happiness has in otherwordly approach that's more of a cosmic creation than you'd expect given their "day job". Tripped out avant dancefloor atmosphere that's also a great headphones listen. The Superhuman Happiness players bring bits of sax, trumpet guitar, bass, bongos and synth. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Cool CreationsWish Upon Love/Nightime On The Beach Island ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The Cool Creations are definitely a group who live up to their name – working here on "Wish Upon Love" with this groove that's complicated, yet completely seductive too! The rhythms change in this nicely sophisticated way, and set things up with a nice edge – which then gets warmed up by the beautiful vocals of the tune! The flipside is pretty great, too – begins with the sound of ocean waves, then moves into this excellent slow-stepping groove that blends sweet trumpet with a watery guitar line – and even some cool moogy moments as the instrumental moves on! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Harry BertoiaClear Sounds/Perfetta ... CD
Sonambient, 1971/1973. New Copy ... $13.99
The first new record in years from the legendary Sonambient label – the musical home of sculptor Harry Bertoia, whose creations were always made with their sonic properties in mind! The two pieces here are from Bertoia's tape archives – and both feature his unusual sound sculptures in performance – at a level that's sometimes a bit more subtle than some of the previous Sonambient releases – really showing the creative care that the man brought into his work. These aren't clangy metal industrial sounds – nor do they bear any relation to bells, chimes, or gongs – and instead, the music here is very organic and of this planet – in the way that Bertoia's sculptures always sought to capture and transform the workings of the world.

Maynard FergusonDues (aka Color Him Wild) ... CD
Mainstream, 1964. Used ... $10.99
A tight little set that's never too wild – given the sharpness that trumpeter Maynard Ferguson can bring to the way he arranges a group! The album's one from a lost point between the two bigger recording moments of Ferguson's career, and has a sound that steps off nicely from his Roulette Records sessions – that same sense of modern recreation of large ensemble modes – with a very strong sense of color and tone, and an inherent rhythmic energy that still never gets in the way of the bolder flourishes of the players! Musicians include Willie Maiden on tenor, Lanny Morgan on alto and flute, Don Rader and Nat Pavone on trumpets, Rob McConnell on valve trombone, and Mike Abene on piano – and titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Macarena", "Airegin", "Tinsel", "Three More Foxes", and "This Nite".

Roselee GoldbergLaurie Anderson (hardcover) ... Book
Thames & Hudson (UK), 2000. New Copy ... $6.99 39.98
A wonderful book that really reminds us that Laurie Anderson was first an artist, then a musician – a legacy that's served up here in a wealth of wonderful images and documents of her early creations – most of which have really been lost to the shifting sands of time for decades! The book is heavy on Anderson work of the 70s – pre-"Superman" presentations that include performance pieces, text creations, images, and more – all growing in power, and leading to Laurie's tremendous United States work of the early 80s, and some of her important recordings too. The images and information is laid out chronologically – in a way that replicates some of the mood of the original pieces – and the book continues with an exploration of her more art-based work in the 90s as well. 204 pages, in full color – and very nicely done!

Gypsy LanePredictions ... CD
Drive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
Gypsy Lane were produced here by Jacques Morali, of Village People fame – but don't hold that against them, as the set's got a deeper vibe than you might expect! The group seem pretty tight on their own already – and work more as a tight ensemble funk group than the kind of disco studio creations Morali was more tied to – grooving at a level that seems informed by the best mid 70s advances of Earth Wind & Fire, which includes some warmer moments next to the uptempo cuts. Lead vocals are by Alfonso Carey, but other members of the group often harmonize alongside – and titles include "Show Me How To Groove", "We'll Have Love", "Hey Sister", and "I Could Use Some Loving".

Art Pepper with Lee KonitzWest Coast Sessions Vol 3 – Lee Konitz (High Jingo – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlas/Omnivore, 1982. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A mighty meeting of two modern alto giants – a set cut under the leadership of Lee Konitz, but which also features some great work from Art Pepper too! Both Pepper and Konitz were two of the most distinctive players to emerge in the 50s – both in the generation after Charlie Parker first set the horn on fire with his bebop creations – but both very individual, distinct players who took the music in fresh new directions. That distinctness really comes through here – as both Lee and Art blow together wonderfully, crossing lines and taking off on solos with a gentle swing that comes from the support of Michael Lang on piano, Bob Magnsusson on bass, and John Dentz on drums. Most tracks are very alto-heavy – in a great way – and the session was originally only ever issued in Japan, as part of the Atlas Records "West Coast Today" series. Titles include "Minor Blues In F", "Whims Of Chambers", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "This Can't Be Love". CD features two bonus alternate takes, too! CD

Zoot Sims/Al Cohn/Herb Steward/Serge ChaloffFour Brothers Together Again ... CD
Vik/Sony (France), 1957. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A set that's great in two different ways – first in that it revives the "four brothers" sound of four saxophonists at once, first forged in the Woody Herman band of the late 40s – and secondly, because the album's a further demonstration of the magical pairing of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims! The group here is only part of a recreation of the Herman lineup, as Al's presence is new – but he also contributes a lot to the songs and arrangements, which really make the small group setting sparkle. Tenors are by Cohn, Sims, and Herbie Steward – and Serge Chaloff plays baritone – with rhythm from Elliott Lawrence on piano, Burgher Jones on bass, and Don Lamond on drums. A number of tunes are new – not just remakes of Herman classics, but titles that riff on and modernize the earlier spirit – and tracks include "Ten Years Later", "Four & One More", "So Blue", "The Swinging Door", "Aged In Wood", "Here We Go Again", "The Pretty One", and "Four Brothers".

VariousFunction Underground – The Black & Brown American Rock Sound 1969 to 1974 (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
The deepest of the deep from the American scene at the start of the 70s – groups so hip they weren't quite soul, weren't quite rock – and instead kind of a funky hybrid of both! After opening our ears to countless underground sounds from around the globe, the Now Again label turn back to some of the territory of its roots – the hinterland of groups who labored mostly in obscurity, but left behind a few funky 45s that have become the stuff of legend – and which show us that there was a much bigger psychedelic funk underground out there besides groups like Funkadelic or the early Ohio Players! As always with the label, the history is really given its due, thanks to very detailed notes – alongside titles that include "Down By The River" by Purple Snow, "There's A Wrinkle In Our Time" by 1984, "Function Underground" by We The People, "Corruption Is The Thng" by Creations Unlimited, "Jimi's Guitar Raps With The Bass" by Jimi Macon, "I'm A Man" by Cisneros & Garza Group, "Just Got To Be Free" by Black Conspirators, "BL Movement" by Blaclites, and "The Siesta Is Over" by The Revolution.

Raw funky Philly soul – all recorded at the tiny Virtue Recording Studios – a small place to work, but a great one too! Virtue has maybe more of a deep soul approach than you're used to hearing from Philly – no soaring strings, polished production, or crossover dance modes – and instead just a nitty gritty vibe that seemed to make every record that came from Virtue bristle with instant excitement! The collection is a funky 45 collector's dream – and is a really special collaboration between Tramp Records and Funkadelphia – the latter of whom did a lot of on-the-ground work to make sure that the whole thing came out right!

A long-overdue recognition of the blues contributions of Willie Dixon – a set that pulls him out of the indie ghetto and pushes him firmly into the mainstream with this key release on Columbia Records! Yet despite that placement, the style is nicely down home – a strong recreation of older Chicago blues modes by producer Abner Spector – one that has Willie singing versions of his classic tunes like "Back Door Man", "The Seventh Son", "Little Red Rooster", "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", and "The Same Thing".

Ikue Mori and Steve Noble come together in a blistering array of electronics and drums – the former from Mori, the latter from Noble – both working together in bursts of sounds that really make the sound sources feel very unified! Noble plays added percussion, too – but even the way he approaches the kit creates all these sounds that fall right in line with all of Mori's enigmatic creations – which really seem to rise to a percussive level, rather than slide in between the sonic attack – in a very fresh approach to improvised electronics in such a setting! Titles include "Combustion", "Convection", "Seismic Waves", "Atmospheric Pressure", "Inferno", and "Black Death". CD

✨✧ Wolf VostellDe-coll/age Musik ... LP
Multhipla/Soave (Italy), 1982. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A collection of work drawn from decades of creations by Wolf Vostell – a founding member of Fluxus and one of the more radical musicians of the 60s – although crucially ignored in wider discussions of creative music! Vostell works here in ways that illustrate his "de-collage" concept – a reversal of musical collages taking place in other realms of the avant garde, with subtraction as the driving feature over combination. And yet at a sonic level, these creations still have a resonance with some of the tape experiments and musique concrete of Vostell's generation – especially in his sense of texture – but that also may just be a coincidence, as may of these recordings feel like they're coming from live sources – as illustrated by the cover art images of broken glass, a field of vacuum cleaners, a guitar attached to a car door, and other unusual images!
