Toby FichelscherBusting The Bongos ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderful lost work from Toby Fichelscher – a German bongo player with a hell of a great ear for an unusual groove – strongly demonstrated here in a set of previously-unreleased recordings! Toby draws plenty from American percussionists of the 50s – and works here in a modern jazz setting that uses his percussion to bring sharp sounds to a lineup that includes vibes, alto sax, guitar, and tenor – often used in these cool, chromatic ways that work wonderfully alongside the rhythms! Fichelscher also sings and scats a bit at a few points – mixing vocals with his percussion in a way that reminds us of Fats Sadi, a European contemporary who had a similarly great ear for mixing modes. Most tracks here are instrumental, but even those have as much charm as the vocal numbers – and titles include "The Cool Scene", "My First Blues", "Fashion Trip", "Shadows", "With Cash Like This", and "On Chano's Track".

Nico Fidenco/Alessandro AdrianiZombi Holocaust – Remixed By Alessandro Adriani ... LP
Mannequin (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Sweet new takes on the original Zombi Holocaust score by Nico Fidenco – served up in 21st Century mixes by Alessandro Adriani, but with all the original electronics intact! The approach here is pretty lean – and Adriani doesn't seek to augment the tracks, and instead focuses in on their best elements, and amplifies them a bit – so that you get loads of really sweet keyboard passages with a cool early 80s vibe – and plenty of rhythms that still have a very retro-styled drum machine approach! Side one features the shorter tracks "Fascinating Horror 2", "Living In The Past 2", "From The Beyond 3", "A Dive Into the Past 4", "Magic Is In Progress 2", and "Zombie Parade 1" – and side two features the extended "The Magic Is In Progress (Alessandro Adriani rmx)".

Fire Room (Ken Vandermark)Broken Music ... CD
Atavistic, 2008. Used ... $5.99
Nothing broken here – except maybe your speakers if you mistakenly play this one too loud! The group's a power trio that features the tenor and baritone sax of Ken Vandermark, the drums of Paal Nilssen-Love, and electronics of Lasse Marhaug – all used at a level that's quite searing at times, and a lot more intense than most other recent work we've heard from Vandermark! The drums are especially bombastic on the louder tracks – really booming out with a power that Ken matches on his reed work – and the electronics follow suit nicely, reminding us of some of the better European jazz/electronic dates of years back. Other tracks are a bit more spacious, but still have a sinister feel that keeps us on our toes – and titles include "When Water Burns Air", "Hand Lettered", "Dashboard Fire", "Line Of Lead", "broken Music", and "Slag".

Firebeats IncLet Me Tell You – Singles & Outtakes (180 gram pressing – with poster) ... LP
HMV/Round 2 (Norway), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
Rare work from The Firebeats – a hell of a great group from the Norwegian scene of the 60s, and one who have the best qualities of all the British beat combos of the time! Like those groups, The Firebeats serve up a blend of tuneful rock with some deeper currents borrowed from American soul and R&B – all with a melodic approach that almost reminds us of some of the bigger Brit Invasion acts who cracked the charts on our side of the Atlantic! The group's one album is plenty darn rare, and these tracks are even more obscure – pulled from rare singles on HMV, and combined with some early demo tracks and outtakes – lyrics mostly in English, on tracks that include "Don't Throw Stones", "Let Me Tell You", "Little Girl", "Hemmeling Agent", "I Feel Fine", "Buckleshoe Stomp", "If You Need Me", "It's So Easy", "Jack The Ripper", and "Oh Carol". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great package – heavy vinyl, excellent cover and inner sleeve, and bonus poster too!)

Ingebrigt Haker FlatenIngebrigt Haker Flaten Quintet ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2006. Used ... $16.99
A riveting batch of tense, sly and stripped down string-laden jazz from the Norwegian scene – led by the thundering bass of Ingebrigt Haker Flaten – and one of the better releases in years from the ever-impressive Jazzland label! Flaten is familiar for collaborations with some of the brightest talents of both the Chicago and Norgwegian scenes – including work with Ken Vandermark's School Days, the incredible Thing project with Mats Gustafson and Paal Nilssen, and of course the mighty Atomic – but this great headlining set still caught us a little off guard. It shares a sensibility with Atomic in that it has roots planted firmly in the best free jazz of the past few decades. There's a sense of menace and a penchant for controlled cacophony – but it's still quite beautiful in spots and feels very much of the modern era. Players include Anders Hana on guitar, Ola Kvernberg on violin & mandolin, Klaus Ellerhusen Holm on baritone sax, alto sax and clarinet, and Fredrik Rundqvist on the kit. Another winner for Jazzland! Titles include "Maxwell's Silver Demon", "Playing", "Seemingly", Ceta", "Olja Og Gass", "Zardoz" and It's A Desperate Situation". CD

✨✧ Fourth WayFourth Way ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A killer album from funky jazz combo The Fourth Way – one of the best groups of the progressive jazz era in America, thanks largely to the work of its excellent members! First to get big credit is Mike Nock – the Aussie pianist who worked with Yusef Lateef in the mid 60s, and really came into his own by the time of this album – grooving on electric piano in a stone cold way that still sounds great today, and also doing wonderful on the acoustic keys. Next up is Michael White, one of the few jazz violinists to really know how to groove – and how to avoid getting too flowery at the wrong moments. The group's completed by a fantastic rhythm team – drummer Eddie Marshall and bassist Ron McClure, who plays a range of electrified basses! The album kicks off with the incredible break track "Everyman's Your Brother", and the whole thing's great – with tracks that include "Bucklehuggin", "Dance Of The Mechanical Men", "Openings", "Gemini Trajectory", and "The Sybil".

✨✧ Frankie SmithDouble Dutch Bus/Double Dutch ... 12-inch
WMOT, 1980. Very Good- ... $0.99
The verses for these tracks are based on various jump-roping rhymes, but the best parts are the goofy non-sense vocals, sort of like the Zoom language, that you'll recognize from the Cold Cut remix of "Paid In Full." All done over that 1980-era loping rollerskating style music. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Aretha FranklinLady Soul ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, 1968. New Copy ... $3.99 4.98
One of Aretha's undisputed classics – a seminal session that furthered her deep soul agenda with key backings from Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd! The Sweet Inspirations provide sublime backing vocals behind Franklin's maturing delivery of the lyrics – and the music is by an all-star group of players that includes Spooner Oldham, Bobby Womack, Jimmy Johnson, King Curtis, Tommy Cogbill, Roger Hawkins, and even Eric Clapton! Cuts include "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman", "Chain Of Fools", "Money Won't Change You", "Come Back Baby", and "Ain't No Way". CD includes 4 bonus tracks "Chain of Fools (unedited version)", "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman (mono single version)", "Since You've Never Been Gone (Sweet Sweet Baby) (mono single version)", and "Ain't No Way (mono single version)"!

Aretha FranklinWho's Zoomin Who (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/FTG, 1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 15.98
A huge hit for Aretha Franklin – and a record that brought her famous vocals to a whole new generation of listeners! The sound is definitely different than before – a change from both the deep soul of Atlantic years, and the initial classy approach of her time at Arista – and working with lots of help from Narada Michael Walden, Aretha gets an 80s groove that turns out to be a perfect platform for her sound – one that lets her vocals really take off, while still getting plenty of great hooks as well – all in a mode that somehow sounds far less commercial than we remember at the time. Includes the massive hits "Freeway Of Love" and "Who's Zoomin Who" – plus "Ain't Nobody Every Loved You", "Push", "Integrity", "Sisters Are Doin It For Themselves", and "Sweet Bitter Love". 2CD version features an insane number of bonus tracks – including loads of mixes, remixes, dubs, and single versions of the big tracks off the album!

Chico FreemanTradition In Transition ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A well-titled set from Chico Freeman – as the reedman definitely takes older modern modes into new territory here – moving in almost Monk-ish space, but with some sharper, bolder tones overall! The album's a surprising one for an early 80s major label release – a great reminder that some companies were still willing to take a chance on jazz at the time – and Chico's got a key assortment of players working with him on the date. In addition to his own tenor, flute, and bass clarinet, the record features Wallace Roney on trumpet, Clyde Criner on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, Billy Hart on drums, and Jack DeJohnette on either drums or piano – shifting about a bit from track to track. Titles include "Mys-Story", "At A Glance", "In Spirit", "The Trespasser", "A Prayer", and "Each One Teach One". LP, Vinyl record album

Joki Freund QuintetEuropean Jazz Sounds ... CD
Brunswick/Be! (Germany), 1957. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the earliest work we've ever heard from German tenorist Joki Freund – a player who'd trip out a bit more in later years, but who blows here with a sound that's sharp, modern, and very swinging throughout! The group features trombone from Albert Mangelsdorff, who's also on the straighter side of the spectrum here – plus alto from Emil Mangelsdorff, sounding a lot more modern than on other recordings – really matching the energy of both hornmen, as they all step out in a piano-less group that only features the bass of Harry Schell and drums of Rudi Sehring on rhythm! The music has echoes of better-known 50s modernists – like Lee Konitz or Jimmy Giuffre on our side of the Atlantic, or Hans Koller in Freund's German scene – and the package features live material from a 1957 album, plus additional studio tracks from the rare Joki's Sparkle EP. Titles include "Nico", "Freund Point", "Vie La France", "Swinging Pigeons", "Domicile", "Rudy's Theme", and "From Lighthouse To Frankfurt". CD

Don FriedmanCircle Waltz ... LP
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great little set from Friedman – a vastly underrated pianist who's working here as a bright young modernist in a trio with Chuck Israels on bass and Pete LaRoca on drums. The tracks have a freedom that reminds us a lot of Bill Evans' early work, with a warm lyricism that never gets too hokey – yet isn't afraid to show itself in Friedman's original compositions. Titles include "Sea's Breeze", "Loves Parting", "Modes Pivoting", and "Circle Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

Fabio FrizziZombi 2/Un Gatto Nel Cervello ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1979/1990. New Copy ... $15.99
A pair of weird soundtracks from Italian soundtrack heavy Fabio Fizzi – the stylistically sprawling music for Zombi 2 (released in America as Zombie) and some later compositions for Un Gatto Nel Cervello! The Zombi grooves are wildly unpredictable – from neo Carribbean inflections, to electronics reminiscent of John Carpenter, to African percussion. Wild stuff for a movie about Zombie carnage – and yes, that's the movie with the zombie-shark faceoff! Un Gatto Nel Cervello finds Frizzi working in a more classically soundtracky style – but it's done on synthesizers, which gives it seedy undercurrent! Both soundtracks on a single CD – with each consisting of multiple title theme sequences – and featuring 23 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Curtis FullerBlues-Ette ... CD
Savoy, 1959. Used ... $4.99
A seminal session from Curtis Fuller – one of a handful he cut for Savoy, recorded during that late 50s/early 60s period when he seemed poised to become one of the biggest trombonists in jazz! (Whatever happened? How did he cut so many records as a leader so fast, then slide back into being a sideman for most of the rest of his career?) The set's cut in that laidback blowing session mode of the Savoy hardbop years – with tremendous work from Benny Golson on tenor, plus Tommy Flanagan on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Al Harewood on drums – all working through easily-handled tunes that include "Minor Vamp", "Love Your Spell Is Everywhere", "Five Spot After Dark", and "Twelve Inch". Think soul jazz with a slight touch of mysticism! CD also features 3 bonus alternate takes of tunes on the album. CD

FunkadelicStanding On The Verge Of Getting It On (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
A blistering little set from Funkadelic – one that features the return of Eddie Hazel's guitar, finely honed to the leaner, more soul-based sound of the group in the mid 70s! The title is prophetic, as the group are really "standing on the verge" here – working hard to tighten up their sound from the more rock-based years, and moving into a catchier funk groove that would put them over the top for many records to come! The title cut "Standing On The Verge" is one of the most anthemic funk tracks you'll ever find – with a chorus and groove that will stay in your head for years after you first hear the song – and there's lots of other tasty tracks like that on the set, really honing the Funkadelic approach down into an incredibly powerful sound! Titles include "I'll Stay", "Standing On The Verge", "Good Thoughts Bad Thoughts", "Red Hot Mama", "Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of Bitch In Him", and "Sexy Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Serge Gainsbourg/Jean-Claude VannierSex Shop/Je Vous Aime ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1972/1980. New Copy ... $22.99
Two groovy soundtracks by Serge Gainsbourg – back to back on a single CD! First up is the ultra-cool score for Sex Shop from 1972 – co-written with Jean-Claude Vannier, and done in a style that draws heavily from the previous funky work by the pair – sweet, slinky, and very much in the best early 70s Gainsbourg mode! Serge sings a bit on the soundtrack, as does Jane Birkin – but the real charm almost comes from Vannier's instrumentation – which blends funky drums with strutting basslines, moody keyboards, and other cool bits! Je Vous Aime is from 1980, and really shows some of the Gainsbourg styles of the time – bits of pop, rock, and dub all filtered together, often with an ironic undercurrent, even when seemingly straight. Gainsbourg stars in the film, as do Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve – all of whom get a chance to sing in the score, most strikingly Depardieu, since he plays a rocker in the story. Sex Shop tracks include "Fontaine Des Innocents", "Sex Shop", "Sex Radio Suite", "La Decadanse", and "Club Love" – and Je Vous Aime tracks include "La Fautive", "La P'tite Agathe", "Je Pense Queue", "Mermoz", "Papa Nono", and "Je Vous Salue Marie".

Eddie GaleInner Peace Suite #2 ... LP
Sagittarius (Italy), 1995. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautifully spiritual set from the legendary Eddie Gale – a record that's got the same mix of vocals and jazz as his classic Ghetto Music albums for Blue Note – but served up here with a slightly different vibe! The sound is equally righteous, but maybe a bit more open, too – as Eddie's trumpet and flugelhorn make their way alongside tenor from James Garrison and alto from Emily Haozous, in a setting that includes two bassists, drums, and percussion – as well as a small string duo who add a celestial feel on violins, plus vocals from Irina Mikhallova, who brings a nice sense of message to the music. There's no larger chorus, as on Gale's early classics – but there's a definite "voice-like" vibe to some of the violin, saxophone, and trumpet passages – beautifully phrased, and filled with feeling – on titles that include "Water Care", "African Sunshine", and "Love Understanding".
