✨✧ Thievery CorporationCosmic Game ... LP
ESL, 2005. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Thievery Corporation are back after a long hiatus – and they've returned to the fold with a host of surprising guest stars! The set's got a really wide range of grooves – as one might expect when the group's working with artists that include David Byrne, Perry Farrell, and The Flaming Lips! But over and above these bigger crossover names, the team's also sticking very true to their roots on other tracks – bringing in some great downtempo and Brazilian influences, and fleshing out tunes with an equally great array of lesser-known talents that includes Sista Pat, Gunjan, Verny Varela, Gigi Rezende, and Patrick De Santos. Titles include "Marching The Hate Machines", "Pela Janela", "Sol Tapado", "The Time We Lost Our Way", "A Gentle Dissolve", "Holographic Universe", "The Heart's A Lonely Hunter", and "The Cosmic Game".

✨✧ Thievery CorporationRadio Retaliation ... LP
ESL, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
No radio retaliation here, as Thievery Corporation are miles from the airwaves – working in their own unique blend of a globe's worth of grooves! The sound here is every bit as lush and full as before – a mix of classic funky elements, exotic instrumentation, and a few contemporary touches – focused strongly into the ESL groove that's become the trademark Thievery sound over the past decade or so. The pair seem to have even more guest help here than ever before – a rich lineup that includes Femi Kuti, Seu Jorge, Anuoushka Shankhar, Chuck Brown, and Sleepy Wonder – all of whom definitely make their presence felt. Titles include "Sound The Alarm", "Mandala", "Radio Retaliation", "Vampires", "La Femme Parallel", "Hare Krishna", and "Blasting Through The City". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad". LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonSpace ... LP
CTI, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A collection of George Benson material from other CTI sessions – but that's ok with us, because the material's great, with that spare spaced-out funk sound of the label's best early 70s work! Players include Hubert Laws, Ronnie Cuber, Fred Wesley, Steve Gadd, and Bad Bascomb – and Dave Matthews handled arrangements on one track. Titles include "Sky Dive", "Summertime", "Octane", and "No Sooner Said Than Done". LP, Vinyl record album
(Non-gatefold pressing.)

Don Gardner QuintetRhythm & Blues Dance Party ... LP
Fonet (UK), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A blazing live set from The Don Gardner Quintet – recorded live a Stockholm's Dans In in August of 1965 – and a pretty great mix of drums and organ-heavy jazz and the Rhythm & Blues Dance Party promised by the titles! The group is fantastic – with Gardner holding down on the drums and Dee Dee Ford really standout out strongly on organ – and the two also contribute some vocals. Other players include Bill Leslie and Jimmy Ricks on saxes and Nat Stokes on guitar. Guest singer Beverly Glenn contributes some great, almost show-stealing soul vocals on "Shotgun" and "Heatwave", and other numbers include "Walkin'", "I Don't Want To Cry", "Watermelon Man", "Shiny Stockings", "Julep". "I Don't Need You Anymore" and "Last Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Invisible HandsTeslam ... LP
Abduction, 2014. New Copy ... $19.99
The second album from Invisible Hands – the group led by Alan Bishop of the Sun City Girls – and a record that's even better put-together than the first! There's a bit more of a song structure this time around – and some of the more tuneful moments are surprisingly powerful – almost like some lost indie American sounds from decades back – but the kind of music that Bishop was never making in his first famous group – although some tracks here retain a trippier edge. Titles include "Carrion", "Spaces", "Priests & Poets", "Over Easy", "Places", "Slaughterhouse", and "Eyes In The Back Of Your Head". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JBsBreakin' Bread ... LP
People, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An oft-overlooked gem from the JBs – their last album for People Records, and a stone funk classic that's every bit as essential as the others! The band is still in fine fine form – with none of the fast-funk or proto-disco of some later recordings – and they're working here in some really tight song formats that almost go back to the early days of the group's first few singles. The album's filled with great playing, wonderful grooves, and Fred Wesley's keen sense of humor – which sparks the whole set with a sense of warmth and creative play that show why the JBs are still the greatest funk band ever. Includes the excellent "Little Boy Black", which begins with some tasty James Brown vocals; the oft-sampled "Rockin' Funky Watergate"; plus "Step Child", "Makin Love", and "Rice & Ribs". Not as drawn out as Doing It To Death, but more complicated than Food For Thought, and still a totally essential bit of funk! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all the thousands of groups in the funky 45 underground who were always trying to copy their sound, but never got things this right! Not only are the rhythms the stuff of legend – but the use of the instruments is far far above the norm – as can be heard on the mindblowing "The Grunt", which was sampled heavily by Public Enemy to great fame – and which features a saxophone solo that sounds more like a whistling tea kettle! The set collects some of the group's best early singles, and includes all of the short little funky cuts that made them a legend right out of the box – "Pass the Peas", "The Grunt", "These Are The JBs", "Hot Pants Road", "Wine Spot", "To My Brother", "Blessed Blackness", "Theme From King Heroin", "Escapism (parts 1 & 2), and "Gimme Some More" – all together here in one tight little album of massive funky hard beats and breaks!

Wojciech Karolak, Tomasz Szukalski, BartkowskiTime Killers ... LP
Helicon (Poland), 1984. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Sharp-edged fusion from the 80s Polish Jazz scene – recorded in a style that's almost an extension of work from other European scenes of a decade before! The group is a trio that features keyboardist Wojciech Karolak, saxophonist Tomasz Szukalski, and drummer Czeslaw Bartowski – all grooving in a way that's slightly jamming, but perhaps not as rock-oriented as other fusion combos of this nature. Karolak's keyboards really direct the sound of the set strongly – and on some numbers he's using organ, but others feature a fair bit of synthesizer – recorded in ways that sound a bit more 80s-esque than the overall construction of the tunes, almost with a few soundtrack influences at times. Titles include "State Train", "Anniversary Blue", "Double B", "Gem", "Trata Tata", and "Time Killers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light ringwear.)

MombasaAfrican Rhythms & Blues 2 ... LP
Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
The second album from Mombasa – and possibly even better than the first! The group have really come into their own by the time of this date – mixing together jazz and African roots with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – quite unique in its approach to rhythms, sounds, and solos! The grooves aren't really the Afro Funk you might expect – and instead, they're based on a headier brew of basslines and percussion, one that's somewhere in a space between Boscoe, The Pharoahs, and Demon Fuzz – but with a sound that's ultimately different than both. The trombone of Lou Blackburn carries the lead on most tracks – snaking out wonderfully over the grooves, with a quality that's amazingly soulful, and which almost has him standing head to head with Fred Wesley as a 70s innovator on his instrument. Other members of the group include Doug Lucas on trumpet, Bob Reed on percussion, Alan Tatham on drums, and Don Ridgeway on electric bass – the last of whom really does a great job shaping the sound of the tunes. Titles include "Yenyeri", "Holz II", "Nomoli", "African Hustle", and "Al Rahman". LP, Vinyl record album

Ira SullivanBilly Taylor Trio Introduces Ira Sullivan ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A great early session from Chicago trumpeter Ira Sullivan – a very strong player who came out strongly in the late 50s as one of the big jazz hopefuls from the Windy City. This set has Ira backed by the Billy Taylor Trio – presented by Billy on ABC, where the Taylor trio was recording at the time. Tracks have a nice open-ended feel, and a lot more drive than Billy's own work at the time, and the best numbers feel like they were recorded for a Prestige blowing session. Titles include "Strolling", "Leslie's Gauge", "You Don't Know What Love Is", and "So In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has yellowed tape residue on the corners on back.)
