Vanessa Da MataVanessa Da Mata Canta Tom Jobim ... CD CD format
Sony (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
Wonderful stuff – a set that represents a real maturation for Vanessa Da Mata – a stronger link to Brazilian tradition than before, yet still with a vibe that hanks onto the contemporary energy that's always made us love her records! As the title indicates, the set's a batch of classic compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim – sung by Da Mata in this gently flowing style that's mighty nice – and set to arrangements by Deodato that really have an old-school mode – but not some sort of sleepy retro-bossa, or bossa-remix – instead that kind of airy space that Deodato first helped pioneer back in the 60s, and which sparkles even more here from his own lead work on acoustic piano! The balance is great, and Vanessa really rises to the top in the setting – on titles that include "Fotografia", "Wave", "Correnteza", "Estrada Do Sol", "Sabia", "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Chovendo Na Roseira", "Por Causa De Voce", and "So Danco Samba".

Damu The FudgemunkPublic Assembly ... CD CD format
Redefinition, 2014. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
As fine of a batch of raw, funky hip hop instrumentals from Damu The Fudgemunk as we've heard! Damu's style is reminiscent of the blueprint soul and funk samples era that we all cherish – with moody, murky head nodding instros, and some more thickly-layered jams too. Solid stuff! Public Assembly is made up of rare and unreleased instrumental versions, and titles include "Hole Up!", "Truly Get Yours", "Wings Remix", "Madvillain Revision", "Streamline", "Overthrone", "Brightside OG Mix", "Supply For Demand Intro" and more.

Eddie DanielsBrief Encounter ... CD CD format
Muse, 1977. New Copy ... $4.99
A compelling 70s set from reedman Eddie Daniels – a lot darker than some of his smoother jazz sides to come! There's a feel here that's almost in the CTI camp, but a bit spacier overall – as Daniels' work on flutes, tenor, and clarinet comes into play nicely with Fender Rhodes and string ensemble keyboard work from Andy Laverne – hero of a few key indie dates of the decade, and still sounding great here. Rhythm is from Rick Laird on bass and Billy Mintz on drums – players who can alternately space out and kick things up when needed – and the album's a nice reminder that Daniels could sometimes be gently expressive without being too sleepy. Titles include "Sway", "The Path", "Brief Encounter", and "Ligia". CD

George DavisScapula – Bop Acetates Chicago 1949 ... CD CD format
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1949. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
Very rare work from an early bop saxophonist in Chicago – reedman George Davis, who's best known for bringing together the team of Jackie & Roy! Davis recorded briefly for Aristocrat/Chess Records, but has hardly any output of his own – which makes this previously-unissued live set a real discovery – an amazing chance to hear George's very raw, very soulful tone – and a fair bit of his writing as well! Most tunes are originals, and George has this full-on sound that's mighty strong – a great reminder that between the bigger bop scenes on the coasts, there still was some excellent work happening in Chicago as well. The recording quality is "live", although the set's not a concert – and the group features an unnamed guitarist as well – on titles that include "Comin On", "Plenty Of Kicks", "Piano Man's Idea", "Bop Me", "Due Date", "Scapula", and "He's A Real Gone Guy".

Miles DavisChronicle – The Complete Prestige Recordings 1951 to 1956 (8 CD set) ... CD CD format
Prestige, Mid 50s. Used 8CDs ... $59.99
Wow! An incredible collection of seminal recordings from one of the most important figures in modern music! All of Miles' recordings fro the Prestige label in one place, bound up in a well annotated box, and given a complete discography and lots of excellent photos. It's almost too much astounding jazz in one place! The list of sidemen and great LPs is almost too long to go over, but in addition to Miles' remarkable Cookin'/Relaxin'/Walkin'/Workin' sessions, there's all of the material issued as Bags' Groove, with the Modern Jazz Giants and loads more, and some of the stellar accompanists includes John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Lee Konitz, Red Garland, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Milt Jackson, Paul Chambers, Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, and Max Roach, just to name a few. There's far too many tracks to list here, but there's takes of "Blue Room", "Conception", "Compulsion", "Miles Ahead", "Blue Haze", "Airegin", "Bag's Groove", "The Man I Love", "Green Haze", "Dr Jackle", "The Theme", "Trane's Blues", "'Round About Midnight", "Half Nelson", "My Funny Valentine" and loads more!

Miles DavisRound About Midnight ... LP LP format
Columbia, 1956. Very Good- ... $29.99
Thelonious Monk wrote the title tune, but Miles Davis makes it almost his own here – blowing with a subtly moody magic that makes the album one of his true treasures from the early Columbia years! John Coltrane's along on tenor sax – helping Davis expand the sound the pair first forged on Prestige – and also present is the rhythm trio of Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones – impeccably recorded here with a wonderful sense of space. Titles include Miles seminal take on "Round Midnight", plus "Tadd's Delight", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "A Leu Cha". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing, with deep groove. Cover has moderate wear, minor seam splitting, light stains, and a spot of tape residue on the back.)

Stanton DavisThings Can Not Stop Forever/High Jazz – Remixed by Al Kent ... 12-inch 12-Inch
Cultures Of Soul, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
Great Al Kent remixes of these two rare cuts from Stanton Davis – both given Al's wonderful groove for the clubs! "Things Can Not Stop Forever" has a really soaring bassline – one that rumbles strongly at the bottom, but with a fluid feel that drives the whole tune forward wonderfully – while keyboards and reed lines do some cool complicated bits in the middle, yet all without ever losing the groove! "High Jazz" picks up even more than the album version – feeling like some fast funky fusion cut that's mighty groovy – and almost a real change from Al's other remix work! 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Stanton Davis' Ghetto MysticismIsis Voyage ... LP LP format
Outrageous/Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99
A great counterpart to the rare Stanton Davis Ghetto Mysticism album – and a set that was recorded right around the same time, with a number of previously unreleased tracks! The spiritual energy of that group has been well-loved by collectors for years – and enjoyed by others thanks to a recent reissue – and this sweet batch of rare cuts really augments that rare musical moment, by offering up a further set of completely cosmic grooves! The style is spacey jazz funk with some deeper elements in the mix – all recorded and arranged with an indie vibe that reminds us a lot of the classic Oneness Of Juju albums on Black Fire, but without as much vocals – just a strong focus on the sweet keyboard lines and soaring horn passages. Some tracks are brand new, others are different versions of themes from the Brighter Days album – and titles include "Delta Six/Brighter Days", "Isis Voyage", "Odwalla", "Things Can Not Stop Forever (Al Kent version)", "High Jazz (reprise – alt mix)", "Things Cannot Stop Forever (inst mix)", and "Funky Fried Tofu (alt inst version)".

Dayton FlicTakin' You Back To The Music Suite ... CD CD format
Trugroid, Early 80s/2008. Used ... $3.99
Basement soul grooves that reach for the cosmos from Dayton Flic – a project that started in the early 80s Ohio scene – and is only now seeing the light of day! Takin' You Back To The Music Suite features tracks that were recorded in the post disco early 80s – spacey soul tunes with some nice funky bass work by future Burnt Sugar member Jared Michael Nickerson, guitars and programming by Chris Bowman – Hammond, Rhodes and Moog by Dean Hummons – drums by Roger "The Dodger" Parker and vocals from Jenny Douglas. The members all went on to some incredibly diverse session and touring work, while Jared went on to cohabitate the free form jazz funk Burnt Sugar collective! The opener "Taking You Back" has recently recorded additional vocals from fellow Burnt Sugar collaborator Justice Dilla X, and that tune is remixed to close out the set – while the 1982 sessions make up the Music Suite section, a flowing piece that really does serve as sort of a cosmic soul suite – with the tracks "Move Your Body", "Livin For Your Love", I'm Mad" and interludes.

Mark De Clive-LoweTide's Arising ... LP LP format
ABB, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP ... $11.99
A brilliant full-length statement from Mark De Clive-Lowe – an artist who's been making some big waves in the global underground for the past few years – including a range of singles and remixes so great, we can almost forgive him for the length of his name! The set's everything we could have hoped for from Mark – a swirling, cosmic set that effortlessly blends together beats, keys, and a bit of vocals – yet which manages to come off with a complexity that goes far beyond the sum of its parts. Mark recorded the album in London and Auckland – but there's a deeper soul here that almost feels like part of the best side of the Detroit 21st Century scene – especially on the album's excellent vocal numbers! Guest appearances include Bembe Segue, Abdul Syllon, Capitol A, and Lain – and titles include "Traveling", "Quintessential", "Masina's World", "Slide", "State Of The Mental", "Sila's Theme", "Heaven", and "4 YV".

DeathFor The Whole World To See ... CD CD format
Drag City, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music didn't really sound like this in '75 – and it would be as easy to label the sound as something like, "mid 70s Detroit African American precursor to Husker Du", etc, but this is a honestly a pretty remarkable album for its time that we don't want to trivialize it with a lazy nutshell description. The group does distill their influences in a way that's reminiscent of some midwestern post punk, but Death is pre-punk, making it a really fascinating record, and simply a blast to crank up in your headphones! Titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Rock-N-Roll Victim", the longer, seemingly Arthur Lee influenced "Let The World Turn" (eventually nailing a fiercer sound the likes of which Love never messed with), "You're A Prisoner", "Freakin Out", "Where Do We Go From Here???" and "Politicians In My Eyes". 7 songs, 27 minutes, and pretty awesome.

Del The Funky HomosapienNo Need For Alarm ... LP LP format
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initally underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! Whereas I Wish My Brother George Was Here was sort of the loopy, semi-comical cousin to the tonally heavier G-Funk sound, No Need For Alarm has a tighter, somewhat little harder hitting sound – more akin to the jazzy Hiero beats you've come to know and love! There are days when we feel like this is our favorite Del LP. Includes "Catch A Bad One", "Wack MCs", "No Need For Alarm", "Boo Boo Heads", "Worldwide", "No More Worries", "Wrong Place", "In & Out" and "Miles To Go". LP, Vinyl record album

75 Ark/Deltron Partners, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Kid Koala, and Dan The Automator pool their skills for this dawn of the 2000s sci-fi hip hop classic – the masterful Deltron 3030! The guest list is almost too long to get into, but Money Mark, Prince Paul, PB Wolf and Mr. Lif are all here, along with many others. One of the benchmark albums in the leftfield underground hip hop canon – and a hugely influential set that burst the doors wide open for the more creative spirits in the hip hop and even experimental pop. Tracks include "State Of The Nation", "3030", "The Fantabulous Rap Extravaganza", "Things You Can Do", "Positive Contact", "St Catherine St.", "Virus", "Mastermind", "National Movie Review", "Time Keeps On Slipping", "Turbulence (remix)", "Battlesong", "Memory Loss" and more.

DeodatoKnights Of Fantasy/Night Cruiser ... CD CD format
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1979/1980. Used ... $24.99
2 beautiful later albums from Deodato – back to back on one CD! Knights Of Fantasy is smoth and jazzy – done in an LA late 70s style that's kind of like work by Joe Sample or The Crusaders, but a bit more R&B oriented, and with a deeper soul style overall! You can definitely hear Deodato's growing taste for modern soul here – especially on the seminal club jammer "Whistle Bump", which is a tight keyboard-driven groove, with some sweeping strings underneath wah wah guitar. The cut's the real standout on the album – although there's a few other nice moments, like "Space Dust" and "Lovely Lady", which has a great mellow Bob James-ish sound. Night Cruiser is a key record in Deodato's move from funky jazz in the 70s to modern soul in the 80s – and one that showcases the best of his talents in both genres! The approach here is more tightly arranged and produced than that of his earlier CTI sides – but in a mode that's still plenty nice to our ears – as Deodato's uncanny sense of rhythm and timing is still very firmly in place, making the set way way more than just a smooth jazz album – and pushing it strongly into the realm of soulful spacey fusion! There's some really great tracks on the set – like the amazing "Skatin", a sweet keyboard number that's a perfect roller skating jam (in case you couldn't guess from the title) – plus "Love Magic", "Uncle Funk", "East Side Strut", and "Night Cruiser". 11 tracks in all! CD

William DeVaughnBe Thankful For What You Got (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch 7-Inch
Roxbury, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A classic if there ever was one – a seminal 70s soul track, covered by many, and featuring the classic line "diamond in the back/sun roof top/makin' the scene with the gangster lean." Sad thing is, everyone always thinks it's Curtis Mayfield – but it's William, and even better than Curtis! Part 2 is a nice instrumental extension of the song, with groovy guitar. 7-inch, Vinyl record
