Lloyd GlennPiano Stylings ... LP LP format
Score, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $4.99
An excellent album of hard-rolling piano – part R&B, part blues, and part jazz, some of the incredible work of pianist Lloyd Glenn, a heavy handed groover from the 50s. The tracks are all short, with a rolling piano groove that's part Texas, part New Orleans. Titles include "Glenn's Guide", "Shadow Land", "Chocolate Drop", "Chica Boo", "Tiddley Winks", "Nite Flite", and "Still Water". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Score pressing with the deep groove. Cover has some wear, and masking tape along all seams.)

Chet BakerPeace ... CD CD format
Enja/Rhino, 1982. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A pretty nice later Chet Baker album – thanks to vibes by David Friedman, who really seems to be the driving force of the set! The album was cut during the same time that Friedman himself was a leader on Enja – and it's got a very similar feel to much of Dave's work – with vibes that ring out slowly but effectively, creating a spacious backdrop for Baker's fragile, somewhat bruised solos to emerge. Bass is by Buster Williams, drums are by Joe Chambers, and 4 of the album's 6 tracks are Friedman originals – including "For Now", "Shadows", "Syzygies", and "Lament For Thelonious". CD

New Express RisingExpress Rising (2nd album) ... LP LP format
Numero, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising – and a much-anticipated second project from funk archivist Dante Carfagna! Dante's a name you probably know best from his work writing liner notes or Wax Poetics – and helping out in countless important compilations over the years – but a decade ago, Dante dropped his first mysterious project under the Express Rising name – and finally returns here with a second album! The sound is even more enticing this time around – still drawing a bit from the world of DJ Shadow – a frequent Carfagna collaborator on archive projects – but the sound is also surprisingly warm and lyrical too – bits of beats, layers of older sounds, and these spare keyboard bits all served up together in a style that's really unique – and which avoids any of the cliches of both the downtempo world, and the instrumental hip hop scene The approach is often quite poetic, yet still soulful as well – and the whole thing's got a laidback vibe that's neither sleepy nor muddled – a really sort of special space between the grooves. Titles include "Horse Opera", "Dark Early", "Answering Echo So Near", "Winter The Heart", "A Treasure Smile", "Rooms Between Us", and "Memorabilia". LP, Vinyl record album

New Bruno CanforaLa Regina Dei Tartari ... CD CD format
Digitmovies (Italy), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The reign of the Tartars is carried off here in a beautifully dramatic score from Bruno Canforna – one that echoes the mix of exotic orchestrations you'd hear in the best gladiator films of the time – but with some darker rumblings as well! The scene is a bit more Eastern than most Italian films of this type – but Canforna seems to look west, and almost creates this Hollywood sense of drama throughout – but at a really tight, stripped-down feel that's way beyond the commercial soundtracks of the American scene. Woodwinds do a lot of wonderful work here – creating simple melodies or dark shadowy backdrops – and the set features 13 tracks from the film, on CD for the first time ever! CD
