✨✧ Roy BurrowesJamaican Jazz Crusaders (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
JMA/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
An amazing little record – not just for the music itself, which is inherently great – but also for its straight jazz presentation of players you might know in more of a reggae-based setting! The album's a smoking set of hardbop numbers, played with plenty of soul – by a combo billed as the Jamaican Jazz Crusaders – featuring Roy Bubbles Burrows on trumpet, Ernst Ranglin on guitar, Roland Alphonso on tenor, Aubrey Adams on piano, Harold Williams on bass, and Carl McLeod on drums. The format's a bit unusual, in that the album's bracketed by interviews and introductions from Jamaican jazz DJ Nevil Willoughby – but in the core are some great performances, with very inventive arrangements, especially in the way Ranglin's guitar is used – on titles that include "The Highest Mountain", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Split Kick", and "Round Midnight".

✨✧ VariousNuYorican Funk Experience Vol 3 – Raw Latin Funk Direct From NYC ... CD
Nascente (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Smoking Latin – and one of the best compilations of this sort you could hope to buy! The package was put together by Adrian Gibson of London's Jazz Cafe – a compiler who's handled some of our other favorite sets, and a DJ with years of knowledge in the field of classic grooves! The tracks here bubble out from the New York indie scene of the late 60s and early 70s – the glory days of labels like Fania, Cotique, and Alegre, when strands of Latin, soul, and jazz were criss-crossing as much as the side streets and interlocking cultures of Spanish Harlem. The groove here sits very nicely between the Latin Soul and 70s salsa eras – and every cut's a winner, presented in a great format with complete notes on the music! Titles include "Shades Of Time" by Roberto Roena, "Horsin Up" by Orchestra Harlow, "Dance Donna" by Joey Pastrana, "Juntos" by Ray Barretto, "Deep" by Quetcy Alma, "Identify Yourself" by Cafe, "Black Dice" by Mongo Santamaria, "Coco Seco" by Bobby Valentin, and "Crazy Lady" by Mongo Santamaria.

Don PullenRichard's Tune (Solo Piano Album – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Really wonderful work from Don Pullen – solo material, and some of his most soulful sides of the 70s – done in this long-flowing style that's completely sublime! Pullen's really at his best in this format – working in a way that's very free, but never overindulgent or overexpressive in the wrong way – a kind of magical connection between his soul and the piano, with results that are still among some of the greatest in the genre. All tracks are long, and very beautiful – and titles include "Richard's Tune", "Big Alice", "Song Played Backwards", and "Suite (Sweet) Malcolm". Features two unissued bonus tracks – "Kadji" and an alternate of "Big Alice". CD

✨✧ Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot Story ... CD
Philips/Universal (France), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sexy story of Brigitte Bardot – served up here in sweet little book-like format! The package features some of Bardot's best vocal performances from the 60s – music that runs from her initial straight sounds, through her mod "yeh yeh" pop, to her especially slinky sounds recorded with Serge Gainsbourg – all really great recordings that rank right up there with the best female pop France had to offer at the time – a really great discovery if you only know Brigitte as an actress! But if you like seeing her on film, too, you'll dig the images in the full color book packaged inside the hardcover design – great photographs from the 60s that show Bardot in a variety of different settings, accompanied by notes in French. CD features 21 titles that include "La Fille De Paille", "Neu Au Soleil", "Bonnie & Clyde", "Ne Me Laisse Pas L'Aimer", "Invitango", "La Madrague", "Noir Et Blanc", "Maria Ninguen", "Je Manque D'Adjectifs", "Un Jour Comme Un Autre", and "Oh Qu'Il Est Vilain".

✨✧ VariousUltimate Breaks & Beats Vol 22 ... CD
Street Beat, 1970s/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk, deep grooves, and a great batch of essential tracks that have been sampled for years by key hip hoppers and DJs! By the time of this volume, the Ultimate Breaks series was really at the top of their game – and had moved beyond the obvious old school cuts, into a realm of key funky numbers from the 70s – tunes used to expand the sound of hip hop at the time, and which are brought together here in strong New York format years before Dusty Fingers or Strictly Breaks! Titles include Barrabas "Woman", Creative Source "Corazon", Southside Movement "Save The World", plus edited or extended versions of The JB's "The Grunt (Part 1)", Rufus Thomas "Do The Funky Penquin (Part 2)", Shotgun "Dynamite (The Bomb)" and Gary Numan "Films".

✨✧ CheebacabraRetouched ... CD
Mackrosoft, 2000s/2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cheebacabra return to the funky fold – with a set that offers up both unreleased material for the sessions from their previous three records, plus remixes of tracks from those albums as well! The remixes take a variety of approaches – some really cutting into the tunes, some layering more elements on top – including some nice instrumental twists – and the studio outtakes are used in between each remix track, almost like cool little "skit" instrumentals, as you'd find in a classic hip hop set! We especially love these outtakes – as they're lean, and mighty funky – often with great drums and keyboards – and remix tracks include "Osgood Schlatter (DJ Dinya rmx)", "Adventures Beyond (Cheeba rmx)", "Pass The Information (Art Hodge rmx)", "The Delivery (9dw rmx)", "Hidden Valley (Funkscribe rmx)", and "The Players Rendezvous (Naoki Yoda rmx)".

✨✧ Joe PassFor Django ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An album dedicated to the great Django Reinhardt – but one that also comes across with plenty of west coast touches! The format is somewhat Django-esque – with lead guitar work from Joe Pass, plus rhythm guitar support from John Pisano – creating some of the guitar interplay you'd have in a gypsy swing record – but the groove's also a bit more modern than some of Django's classics, and there's a lighter, breezier approach here that's very much in the mode of other Pass records from the 60s – at least the small group ones! Tracks include "Django", "For Django", "Fluer D'Ennui", "Django's Castle", and "Nuages". CD
