InternetEgo Death ... CD
Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks and the sorts of catchy elements that are bound to make the group huge in coming years! There's a crispy, crackling sound in the rhythms all the way through – but never in a too-abstract level, as some more sci-fi oriented artists can hit – and although the record features guest work from Janelle Monae, Tyler The Creator, and a few other stars – we actually love the group's own core performances the best. Titles include "Get Away", "Under Control", "Gabby", "Go With It", "Girl", "Special Affair", "Something's Missing", "Partners In Crime (part 3)", and "Penthouse Cloud". CD

Monday MichiruAlter Ego – Nexus Remixed ... CD
Artist Share, 2010. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99
Really great remixes from Monday Michiru's Nexus album – tracks that make some really great magic with the originals! Monday's selected a great array of talents for this project, and the music really takes off from the sound of Nexus – often into territory that's even more cosmic and far-reaching, with more than a few mixes that would be perfect for a soulful dancefloor – and a few that even get pretty abstract in their approach! There's a lot more beats and keys than on most of the originals – and titles include "Epiphany (Merge Of Equals rmx)", "Sands Of Time (Soulfenix rework)", "Sands Of Time (David Federmann rework)", "Weak (Jephte Guillaume's main voc rmx)", "Your Eyes (Deejaykul rework)", "Candy (Slow Motion Replay rmx)", "Sands Of Time (Soultechnic Saxiest rework)", "Genetic Imprints (Villa Combao Inc & Ramon Riera rmx)", and "Epiphany (Soulfeenix rmx)".

Alan Skidmore/Leszek ZadloEgo Recordings Vol 2 (Thoughts/Morning Rise/SOH/European Jazz Quintet) (4CD set) ... CD
Ego/Organic (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $42.99
A treasure trove of rare work from the obscure German Ego label – four different albums, all of them great – packaged here in tiny LP-styled covers too! The set's especially noteworthy for the work of British saxophonist Alan Skidmore – working here on some of his best material of the late 70s – records that easily rival the best sides cut back home in the UK, but which also have a very different feel and flavor! On Morning Rise, Skidmore plays tenor and soprano sax, alongside Gerd Dudek, who also plays both horns too – in these long, textural lines that merge and diverge nicely with Skidmore's – creating these majestic shapes in sound, before then taking off towards much more powerful solos. Rhythm is from Adelhard Rodiginger on bass and Lala Kovacev on drums – and titles include "Morning Rise", "Macedonian Market", "Dr Les Mosses", and "Nakemiin". SOH is a trio outing from Alan Skidmore, drummer Tony Oxley, and bassist Ali Haurand – hence the title – and the set really allows Skidmore to expand on some of his most open, expressive lines on tenor and soprano sax! Tracks are quite long, and build with this almost late-Coltrane sort of energy – almost glowing with a sense of spirituality that's pushed along strongly by the reed lines. Titles include "One Two Free", "Das Ist Alice", "Lost In WG", and "Trio Nr 10". European Jazz Quintet features tremendous reeds from the trio of Alan Skidmore, Gerd Dudek, and Leszek Zadlo – all of whom play both tenor and soprano sax – and work alongside the bass of Ali Haurand and drums of Pierr Courbois! The set features two long tracks – "Das Ist Alice" and "Miss B" – both of them balanced nicely on the cusp between European free jazz and some stronger spiritual jazz structures, in a very nice way. Last up is Thoughts, from Leszek Zadlo – a record that has Zadlo on both flute and tenor, working with the excellent Ego Records rhythm trio of Joe Haider on piano, Isla Eckinger on bass, and Joe Nay on drums! The sound is quite different than other Ego sessions with the trio – as the tracks here build very slowly, often through the initial utterings of Zadlo on his reeds – kind of growing into a spiritually expressive style that gets increasingly focused as the set goes on – in ways that are a nice change from European free jazz. Titles include "Two Friends", "Some Body", "Struggle", and "Thoughts". CD

Dave LiebmanLast Call ... LP
Ego (Germany), 1977. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the most obscure early albums from reedman Dave Liebman – a set that was recorded in the US, but only issued overseas! The album features Liebman in two different modes – the first a relatively free, surprisingly spiritual setting – as Dave blows tenor on two long tracks, with just the drums of Jeff Williams behind him. Other material is a bit more structured, with those angular lines that Liebman brought to some of his more famous work – a real precursor for a generation of saxophonists who were inspired by these sounds. On these cuts, Liebman plays tenor and soprano sax – and works with Mark Isham on trumpet, Michael Formanek on bass, and Mike Barsimento on drums. The piano-less group has a wonderful sound – lots of soundshaping between Liebman and Isham especially – and titles on the album include "Wind Blues", "The Last Call/First Visit", "Your Lady", "Thoughts Of Loss", and "Leprechaun".

Betty CarterFinally – Betty Carter ... CD
Roulette/Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $7.99
Mellow but compelling work from Betty Carter – singing here with the Norman Simmons trio in an album of material pulled from 2 different live dates in 1969. There's a few nice numbers where the group really opens up – and Betty pushes the envelope vocally, in a style that she'd explore more fully in her later work on her own label. The tracks are mostly standards, but the album features a great version of Randy Weston's "Ego", plus the tracks "All Through The Day", "Body & Soul", "I Only Have Eyes For You", and "Seems Like Old Times".

One-take, all vinyl, favorite funky sample flips by Damu The Fudgemunk for Ego Trip! Essentially a private press mix companion piece to an Ego Trip feature with Damu in which he discussed favorite sample craft – none of which is essential info for enjoyment, as it stands plenty strong on its own, mixing well known and lesser known sample-heavy hip hop and funk – and runs nearly an hour in length.

Friends & NeighborsWhat's Wrong ... LP
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... $23.99
Friends & Neighbors come on even stronger here than on their previous record – with a blistering array of sharp-edged notes that really live up to the Ornette Coleman legacy that inspired their name! The group's incredibly deft – free, but never unstructured – able to turn on a dime, and draw the best from each individual member – while never making it feel like the quintet is being overshadowed by a larger ego or two. There's a sympathy between the players that you don't always get on records like this – and although the performances are quite free, they have an intrinsic logic that makes them extremely powerful. Group features Andre Roligheten on tenor and clarinet, Thomas Johansson on trumpet, Oscar Gronberg on piano, Jon Rune Strom on bass, and Tollef Ostvang on drums – and titles include "Fool Pay", "Duality", "Nokken", "Melting Snow", "Friends", and "Jaguar".

Louis JohnsonEvolution (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... About December 20, 2017
A Johnson Brother, working alone – but in some bassy territory that's right up there with his more famous material! The best cuts here have that jazzy, jaunty undercurrent that made the Brothers Johnson sparkle right from the start – a sound that's hard to describe in words, but which is completely charming on record – and which really makes Johnson-styled grooves stand out from the rest! Other numbers bring in the beats a bit more, and turn up the guitars – showcasing perhaps a bit more of Louis' ego in the music, which is no surprise for a solo set like this – and guest vocals are by Denise Wise, and Tony Haynes – the latter of whom delivers a rap on the cut "Midnight". Other numbers include "Our Love", "Might As Well Make Love", "I Tried", "A Touch Of Class", "I Wanna Take You Away", and "Your Vain & Shallow Love". CD also features the bonus cut "Kinky (extended 12" mix)". CD

Monday MichiruPortraits In Time – 2002 to 2013 ... CD
Adventure, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99 15.99
A wonderful portrait of Monday Michiru – one of our favorite singers of the past 20 years – equally well-versed in jazz, soul, and Brazilian modes – all of which come together on this collection of very well-chosen and overlooked tracks! The special 2CD package brings together music from some of Monday's smaller label and under-distributed titles – including a number of import-only selections, a few collaborations with other artists, and a really wonderful array of tunes that show just how much Michiriu has grown since she first started out! Monday hit some great fame in the mid 90s in Japan – but during recent years, she's been living in the US mostly, and really working on her craft away from the limelight – opening up with expressive jazz inflections that rival some of her best inspirations of previous decades, while still holding onto the richly soulful power that brought her some strong early attention. If you've missed hearing Monday at all, this set is a great introduction – and even if you've followed her as closely as we have, we'll bet that there's some tracks here you might not have in your collection. 23 tracks in all – including "Dreams Of Tomorrow", "Mi Vida", "Sometimes", "One (Alter Ego version)", "Generations", "Epiphany", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Nexus Interlude", "Hung Up", "Genetic Imprints", "Just Be Good To Me", "No Matter What", "Belle O Byron Bay (Bluey mix)", "No Answer", "The Cosmic Laws", and "Cut To The Chase".

Sal NisticoNeo/Nistico ... LP
Beehive, 1978. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic small group work from tenorist Sal Nistico – and one of the few records that really finds a way to capture his genius! Sal got his start in the Woody Herman band of the 60s – and although a standout there, he really shines even more brightly here in a small group setting – with a sharp edge on his horn that maybe only comes through this well in a handful of his European recordings, especially for the Ego label. In the spirit of that imprint, the great trumpeter Ted Curson is on board – and Sal's tone is also balanced out nicely by some equally great work from Nick Brignola on baritone. The rest of the combo is equally great – with superb rhythm from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and titles include "Be My Love", "Blues For KD", "Bambu", "Fee Fi Fo Fum", and "Anthropology".

Billy PrestonBilly Preston ... LP
A&M, 1976. Sealed ... $5.99
Billy Preston looks like some sort of hokey ringmaster on the cover of this one, but he sounds much hipper than you might guess from that image – moving away from his standard hit mode of the early 70s, and working through a range of more subtle and soulful modes! A bit part of the album's strength is its rhythm work from Keni Burke on bass and Ollie E Brown on drums – both of whom hit some mellower modes at times, and offset the more romping rhythms of Preston's style at others. Merry Clayton sings some backup vocals on the record, and titles include "Do What You Want", "Girl", "When You Are Mine", "Bells", "I've Got The Spirit", "Take Time To Figure It Out", and "Bad Case Of Ego".

Right Now, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
A big step forward for The Right Now – branching out from the retro soul of their past work into a bigger, brighter neo-classic sound – but still firmly rooted in soul! Now, as always, the band is an excellent showcase for the powerful voice of singer Stefanie Berecz – and she's never sounded better – confident and commanding on the heavier songs, vulnerable and intimate on the softer ones. Production and arrangements wise, Starlight skews more modern than past records, and with more varied instrumentation – spacier synth and keys on some tunes, delicate string and flute on the more grounded ones. Solid stuff! We're proud to have them on the Chicago scene, but we'd be happy to see them make a dent on the mainstream, too – Stef's got the pipes of a pop soul diva, without the bluster or ego – fronting a solid, talented, real working band. Nice! Includes "Love You Better", "Postcard", "Up All Night", "LOVE (Lets Me Know)", "If It Was You", "Too Late", "Starlight" and "Hooked". CD

El-P and Killer Mike finally deliver a killer duo record! We knew that this one would be a win, considering how great the El-P produced RAP Music album by Killer Mike turned out to be, how versatile the El-P futuristic production vibe is and how timelessly inventive each rapper is on their own. They didn't team-up to coast on their reputations, though, as Run The Jewels is nearly as great as anything either one has done in the preceding couple of years.

The bassist has always been one of our favorite talents – and this little gem is one of the few albums he's cut on his own, a majestic bit of soul jazz and funk, recorded with a very hip lineup! Includes the great slow funk track "The Hump", which has a tight sample-heavy bass and electronics intro, plus lots of other nice ones like "Tayamisha", "Batuki", and "Noble Ego". Sonny Fortune, Woody Shaw, and Billy Hart are all in the group – and with players like that, how can you miss? LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBack On The Street Again – Australian Funk, Soul, & Psych (Mostly) From The Festival Vaults ... LP
Festival/Warner (Australia), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of rare funk and soul from the Australian scene of the 70s – and a collection that goes way past some of the more familiar ground covered by other compilations! There have been a few key looks at the Aussie scene over the years – all of them really revelatory assemblages of funky cuts that never got much circulation outside of the island nation – and which point to a surprisingly huge legacy of great sounds in the 60s and 70s – a time when Australia was riding high on new national growth and cultural pride! This set digs even deeper than those – and dips into a variety of genres, even some great funky rock – and pulls together cuts from the Festival label archive, plus a few other sources – really mixing in some gems we never would have heard otherwise, alongside a few bigger names from the scene. Titles include "Funky Max" by Johnny Rocco Band, "City Sounds" by Daly Wilson Big Band, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "Feel Awright" by The Id, "Superstition" by Ray White Revival, "Africa" by Festival Studio 24 Orchestra, "Weird & Wonderful" by Brute Force & His Drum Band, "The Rat Suite" by Blackfeather, "Sea That Swells" by Tamam Shud, "Odyssey" by Khavas Jute, "The Wrong Time" and "Indian Rope Man" by McPhee, "Painted Ego" by Count Copernicus & The Cosmic Fire, "Vehicle" by Al Style, "Be There In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Oz Bump" by Hot Source, "Do The Uptight" by Ross D Wyllie, "Back On The Street Again" by Billy Thorpe, and "A Day In The Life" and "Hair" by John Sangster.

MPS (Germany), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal session from one of the greatest large groups ever! This one captures the Clarke-Boland ensemble at the peak of their creativity – swinging hard in that tight firey way that was virtually their trademark during the late 60s. The players are a top-shelf mix of European and American jazz legends – coming together without ego, without attitude, and having a hell of a time working through groundbreaking arrangements from leader Francy Boland. Soloists include Sahib Shihab, Tony Coe, Dusko Goykovich, Ronnie Scott, Jimmy Woode, and Benny Bailey – and the tracks are all short, but swing like a mofo, with plenty of solo action in the mix. Titles include "Love For Sale", "November Girl", "All Through The Night", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Bei Dir War Es Immer So Schon". CD

Asylum, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly nice record from one time Fug and session guitar giant Danny "The Kootch" Kortchmar – done for Asylum with a sound that moves from punchy power pop, to more measured singer songwriter stuff, in the vein of Jackson Browne and Warren Zevon – both of whom the Kootch had worked for. As was the case with other Asylum records at the end of the 70s/start of the 80s, the production can be a little too much of the era, but the songs are really strong and Danny just doesn't get enough recognition for his work as a headliner. Solid and tuneful! Titles include "You And What Army", "Lost In The Shuffle", "Killer's Kiss", "Ghost Of Errol Flynn", "Endless Sleep", "Innuendo", "Ego Tripper", "I Starred In That Movie", "Hair Of The Dog" and "When The Eagle Flies".

✨✧ Havard Wilk TrioThis Is Not A Waltz ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Definitely not a waltz – if you know the music of pianist Havard Wilk at all – and instead, the kind of cascading sounds we've really come to love from his music on the piano – a unique touch on the keys that's made Wilk one of the most distinct musicians we've heard in years! As with other recent efforts, the style here unlocks bold new territory in the familiar piano trio setting – music that's as distinct to Havard's scene as the inventions of Herbie Nichols and Elmo Hope were to theirs – and, like both of those modern jazz giants, Wilk's got a way of stating himself strongly, but without ever overstating his case – leaving our ears completely enraptured with the way he spins out new ideas on the keys, but without ever seeming to have a sense of ego. His partners in the proceedings here are equally great – Ole Morten Vagen on bass and Hakon Mjaset Johansen on drums – a beautifully-unified trio of visionaries – and titles include "Tear Conveyor", "Tudor Style", "Neidbau", "Calligrams", "Mnemonic Functions", and "Pneumatiques".

Far Cry are the duo of Phil Galdston and Peter Thom – a pair who'd written songs for others, and spent some time in the background in the 70s studio scene – but who sound great here upfront on their own! The pair sing together with a harmony style that's a bit in the Hall & Oates vein – really sparkling with some blue-eyed charm amidst some wonderful AOR arrangements that perfectly suit their well-penned songs – the kind of tunes that really fit that maturing singer/songwriter mode of the period. And sure, maybe these guys don't have enough ego to crack the charts – but that's also part of the charm of the record – a great example of this wonderful time when artists could be totally top-shelf and professional, yet never need to push too far with any sort of starpower. Titles include "Eldorado Escape", "The Hits Just Keep On Comin", "Fight Fight Fight", "Ocean Eyes", "Some Things Will Never Change", and "Tell Jack". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCold Heat – Heavy Funk Rarities 1968-1974 Vol 1 ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Stones Throw does it again – with a massive batch of older funk rarities that tops most of the rest on the market! Cold Heat is a follow-up to the label's smoking Funky 16 Corners set – and like that one, it's overflowing with great bits that have barely (or never) been heard by the rest of the world at large. Compiler Egon has gone through a range of rare singles, masters, and demos – and has come up with tunes that burn with a brightness that's undeniable. The grooves are all on the harder end of the James Brown Funky People side of the spectrum – and some tracks are by names that are finally getting their due, thanks to the work of Ego, Wax Poetics, and some of the other funky forces doing the good work over the past few years. In a way, the collection's a summation of some of the singles and reissues coming out through the Now Again/Stones Throw imprint – but it also features some other bits and alternate versions that are totally great! Titles include "Don't Go" by Aristocrats Organization, "Loaded To The Gills (edit)" by Michael Liggins & The Supersouls, "Mr Chicken (alternate)" by The Soul Seven, "Slipping Into Darkness" by Dayton Sidewinders, "James Brown Medley" by The Apollo Commanders, "Scorpio" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Sad Chicken" by Leroy & The Drivers, "Street Scene" by Leon Mitchinson, "Free Your Mind" by Amnesty, "The Thing" by Carleen & The Groovers, "Go For Yourself (edit)" by Kenny Smith & The Loveliters, and "The Stretch (edit)" by Detroit Sex Machines.

Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
Fantastic sounds from Dego and Kaidi Tatham – a duo we've been loving since their post-4Hero work as Silhouette Brown – a team who've only gotten better and better as the years go on! There's a soaring vision here that's way more than club – even though there's some clubbier elements in the mix – a future jazz style that's heavy on keyboards, which evolve from 70s modes into something even more righteous – and find interplay with a range of acoustic and electric elements, mostly in an instrumental mode – and with all these funky, jagged currents around the edges! The whole thing's a righteous trip through space and beyond – soaring to the skies on music that weaves together perfectly through the course of the album – on titles that include "It's All For Us", "Nayabinghi Warriors", "Maroon Strategies", "See & Blind Hear & Deaf", "Too Much Ginger", "Treasure Beach", "Decide What You Choose", "Don't Put Your Hat Where Your Hand Can't Reach It", "The Sorrell Sweet", and "It's All For Us".

There's a soaring vision here that's way more than club – even though there's some clubbier elements in the mix – a future jazz style that's heavy on keyboards, which evolve from 70s modes into something even more righteous – and find interplay with a range of acoustic and electric elements, mostly in an instrumental mode – and with all these funky, jagged currents around the edges! The whole thing's a righteous trip through space and beyond – soaring to the skies on music that weaves together perfectly through the course of the album – on titles that include "It's All For Us", "Nayabinghi Warriors", "Maroon Strategies", "See & Blind Hear & Deaf", "Too Much Ginger", "Treasure Beach", "Decide What You Choose", "Don't Put Your Hat Where Your Hand Can't Reach It", "The Sorrell Sweet", and "It's All For Us".

Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! The CD comes with a great booklet featuring notes by Gossner and personal reflections by El Rego. Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

✨✧ Gregory James EditionProphets Of Soul ... LP
Dakar, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Massively mellow funk – played by a cool Chicago trio that's heavy on the electric keys! The group's led by the team of keyboardist Gregory Bibb and guitarist James Norris – with the former working through a set of tasty keys that include Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and farfisa! Rhythms are lean, laidback, and nicely stripped-down – funky, but chilled out – in a kind of a groove that was years ahead of its time, and which is now only finally getting its due. There's some really heavy drums on the best cuts – hard, but with rhythms that are slightly off-kilter, in a way that makes for a really refreshing groove, even when the group's covering work by other artists. The whole thing's instrumental – with the original tracks "Brother Marcus" and "Changing Things" – plus great covers of "Love & Happiness", "Shaft", and a great version of "Ain't No Sunshine". Nice laidback funk, with a super-dope sound that's as a hip as the cover! LP, Vinyl record album

Mikolaj HertelDzwieki Dalekiego Swiata (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
80s keyboards sparkle and glisten wonderfully here – a mix of Roland, Yamaha, and Korg keyboards – all played by Mikolaj Hertel in a few very cool suites of instrumental tunes! The music is maybe an extension of 70s electronic sound library modes, but also colored with some of the tunefulness that you'd find in more conventional 80s electronic sounds in pop, soul, and soundtracks – gentle lyricism that's never too overdone or commercial, but which keeps things plenty tuneful throughout, and makes the album at lot more interesting than some more new age-styled keyboard sessions of the time. The album features three longer thematic suites – "Zaczarowane Ogrody", "Koekcja Lalki Barbie", and "Dzwieki Dalekiego Swiata" – divided into shorter tunes – and the set also features 5 more bonus tracks too.

✨✧ Gregory HoweGregory Howe ... CD
Wide Hive, 2017. Used ... $5.99
A very different set from Gregory Howe – an artist who you might know from jazz recordings as part of the Wide Hive Players, and on other projects for that label as well – stepping out here as a surprisingly compelling singer/songwriter in a whole new mode! Gregory supplied the lyrics for all tunes, and sings in this raspy style that's really great – offset by warmer guitar work, and some nice use of additional strings, too – gently, with production that's almost in a cool 70s mode – never overdone, and really fitting the spirit of the tunes. Titles include "The Things We Do", "Life Is Rain", "Work It Out", "Flower In The Weeds", "Chasing Shadows", "Reaching Higher", and "Concertina". CD
(Penmark through barcode.)
