CameoUgly Ego ... CD
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About June 13, 2018
One of our favorite albums ever from Cameo – the group's third release! The album's got a great approach that hints at more sophisticated soul styles, but which is still firmly in charge of the bass-driven grooves that made their early albums so great – a compressed approach to the music that was copied by countless other groups at the time, but rarely came off this well! The whole thing's great – filled with excellent cuts that include "I'll Be With You", "Give Love a Chance", "Ugly Ego", "Two of Us", "Friend to Me", "Insane", and "I Want You". Super-dope – with loads of great jams! CD

Joe Haider/Fritz Pauer/Horace ParlanEgo Recordings Vol 3 (Reconciliation/Katzenvilla/Water Plants/One For Wilton) (4CD set) ... CD
Ego/Organic (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $34.99
Four ultra-rare records – all brought together in one incredible CD set – the third collection to document the brilliant sounds of Germany's Ego Recordings label from the 70s! First up is the album Reconciliation from Joe Haider – one of the 70s gems on the mighty German Ego label – an incredible small company who seemed to put out nothing but excellent music! The set's led by pianist Joe Haider, and features a quintet with Andy Scherrer on tenor and soprano sax, Ack Van Rooyen on flugelhorn, Gunter Lenz on bass, and Todd Canedy on drums – all of them together welling up as way more than the sum of their parts, and cooking up an amazingly soulful set of tunes! There's bits of modal and American 70s spiritual soul jazz in the set – all played with a proud and buoyant style that unfolds majestically through the course of the album, never faltering in its vision or creativity. A under-acknowledged gem, with tracks that include "Mas De Serles", "Magdalena", "Reconciliation", "Crossover", and "Spanish Groove". Katzenvilla features the amazing trio of pianist Joe Haider, bassist Isla Eckinger, and drummer Pierre Favre – three very individual musicians who come together here as a group, but still retain a lot of their special energy! Haider's a lot more dynamic than usual – still with warm chords on the piano, but also some sharper edges – which seem pushed on by Favre's deft drum work, and his flowing sense of both melody and rhythm at the same moment. Eckinger's bass has these deep, soulful currents that we always love – and really grounds the whole thing in a wonderful way – on titles that include "Capricorn", "My Little Darling", "And Now", "Katzenvilla", and "Fate Of A Child" – all originals by Haider! Pianist Fritz Pauer steps out on Water Plants – a trio date that's got a lot more warmth and soul than some of the musician's previous work from the German scene – a beautiful little session that balances the deep bass work of Isla Eckinger and the subtle drums of Billy Brooks. There's a loose, lyrical vibe to the record that shows a side of Pauer we might not have expected – and Fritz wrote some wonderful tunes for the album, including "Water Plants", "Sagittarius", "Tribal Dance", "For La Rives", and "Autumn Evening". Last up is One For Wilton – one of the hippest later albums from pianist Horace Parlan – a set recorded with the saxophonist Wilton Gaynair, who'd contributed heavily to the UK scene in the late 50s/early 60s, then made great waves in Germany during the 70s! The set features Wilton on tenor and soprano sax, Parlan on piano, and great rhythms from Isla Eckinger on bass and Billie Brooks on drums – all coming together with a sense of warmth and imagination that's completely sublime – much richer than some of Gaynair's other performances from the 70s, and with a sense of flow and soul that makes the album one of Parlan's best. Titles include "Billie's Bossa", "One For Wilton", "Shade", "Firm Roots", and "Pananika". All albums come in tiny LP-style covers, and the box also features a bookle of notes! CD

Monday MichiruAlter Ego – Nexus Remixed ... CD
Artist Share, 2010. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99
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)".

✨✧ InternetEgo Death (with download) ... LP
Columbia, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Vince Benedetti/Dave Liebman/ChangesEgo Recordings Vol 4 (Dwellers On The High Plateau/Last Call/Changes/Some More Changes) (4CD set) ... CD
Ego/Organic (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work from the overlooked Ego label – four rare albums, originally issued only overseas! First up is Dwellers On The High Plateau, by pianist Vince Benedetti – soaring, spiritual soul jazz! The set's built around the piano and compositions of Vince Benedetti – but it really kicks from some great rhythmic accompaniment from Billy Brooks on drums and Eric Peters on bass, both of whom spin out these warm, long, flowing grooves that seem to get more out of Benedetti's work than we've heard on other records. The album also features some great work on soprano and tenor sax from Andy Scherrer – blowing snakey lines that cut through the rhythms with a very nice edge. Titles include "Dwellers On The High Plateau", "Gone", "The Black Notes", and "The Call". Next up is The Last Call – 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". Next is Home Again, by the group changes – a combo that features very strong contributions from trumpeter Uli Beckerhoff, saxophonist Wolfgang Engstfeld, pianist Ed Kroger, bassist Peter Bockius, and drummer Peter Weiss! Like most of the best on the Ego label, there's a strong rhythm section here that really lets the soloists open up and do their thing – never going too far out at all, but crafting these warmly soulful lines, with a slight spiritual undercurrent – stretching out with a rich feeling, but a sound that's never forced or overdone. Titles include "Home Again", "Trees", "Samba Du Commerce", and "Blues For Ed". Changes follow again, with the album Some More Changes – a record with a sound that really represents the strongest modes of soulful jazz that developed in the 70s! These players all clearly have a knowledge of outside territory, but choose to remain closer in – yet always point towards the beyond with both their solos, and their wonderfully strong writing in the set – a bit like some of the best work on Muse Records in the 70s, such as albums by Woody Shaw or Kenny Barron! There's definitely a similar vibe to those records here – especially in the sense of cohesion that comes from the lineup – Uli Beckerhoff on trumpet, Wolfgang Engstfeld on soprano sax and tenor, Ed Kroger on piano, Detlef Beier on bass, and Peter Weiss on drums. All tracks are originals – and titles include "Kenny Make It", "Yaiza", "Akiko", "Hautkontakt", and "Last Chance". CD

✨✧ Joe Armon-JonesStarting Today ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Joe Armon Jones sings and plays lots of cool Wurlitzer electric piano on this gem of an album – but the whole thing is maybe even more of a tribute to the warmly collaborative spirit of the contemporary London scene, as it is to the talents of the man himself! There's a nicely fluid sense of stardom here – as differing artists get their time to shine in the spotlight while others recede a bit from track to track – but not in the kind of "leader with guests" version of older soundsystem albums – and instead maybe more as a cosmic vision for the future. Other singers include Asheber, Big Sharer, Ego Ella May, and Oscar Jerome – and musicians include Dylan Jones on trumpet, Moses Boyd on drums, and Nubya Garcia and James Mollison on tenor. Titles include "Starting Today", "Almost Went Too Far", "London's Face", "Ragify", "Outro", and "Mollison Dub". CD

Jocelyn BrownOne From The Heart ... CD
Warner, 1987. Used ... $7.99
A classic groover from Jocelyn Brown! One From The Heart was a big mainstream moment for Jocelyn Brown – the crowning realization of all the great work she'd done in the club underground in the early part of the 80s – presented here with a slightly more crossover vibe, but a sound that's still pretty darn great in the end, thanks to Brown's tremendous vocals. Jocelyn's really keeping an older style of female soul alive here – amidst some beats and more programmed rhythms – belting things out with the pipes that first rose her to fame in the disco years, pretty proud and unabashed here. Rhythms are better than usual for a major label record like this – thanks to help from Hubert Eaves and Jellybean – and titles include "Love's Gonna Get You", "Ego Maniac", "True Love", "Caught In The Act", "I Cry Real Tears", and "Living Without Your Love".

✨✧ Betty CarterFinally – Betty Carter ... CD
Roulette, 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".

Folkways, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A beautiful post-Atlantic album from Nikki Giovanni – much more intimate and personal than her better known work, with only Nikki's voice throughout the album – heard on a number of shorter poems! At some level, Giovanni seems to have left behind the more righteous themes of before, and is going for a mode here that's a bit more everyday – but still touched with the deeper reflections that make her so great. The titles of the poems tell enough about the subject matter – and they include "Parent's Never Understand", "Mommie's Daddies", "Ego Tripping", "James Shell's Snowball Stand", "Knoxville Tennessee", "Winter Poem", "The Drum", and "Kidnap Poem".

Very spiritual stuff, with backing vocals by the New York Community Choir, who also recorded a great soul album on RCA around the same time – and an overall approach that elevates Nikki's poetry into a very spiritual realm!

Louis JohnsonEvolution (with bonus track) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
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

Bobby KeysBobby Keys ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A really cool album from saxophonist Bobby Keys – a record with no vocals at all, just Bobby's solos – but a set that's maybe better tagged as instrumental rock than jazz, given the heavyweight guest musicians in the lineup! Keys blows with an all-star array of talent from the rock scene of the time – including Jack Bruce and Felix Pappalardi on bass, Leslie West and Dave Mason on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, and Ringo Starr on drums – plus a bit more guitar from George Harrison, too! Yet what's great about the record is that all these talents put aside their ego and follow Bobby's lead – in a groove that's maybe a bit southern soul, a bit down-home rock – with some definite currents of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the music. Titles include "Crispy Duck", "Steal From A King", "Bootleg", "Smokefoot", "Altar Rock", "Command Performance", and "Sound & Foam". CD

Boobie Knight & The SoulcietySoul Ain't No New Thing ... LP
RCA, 1972. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
Reissue of an amazingly hard to find funk album on RCA! The Soulciety group was the brainchild of Boobie Knight, and they were one of the many funky groups that fell under the supervision of Harvey Fuqua while he was working for RCA. Boobie's group has a totally different sound than the others on the label, though, and the album's a complicated mix of soul, funk, and heavy-duty jamming. The set includes the nice breakbeat cut "Power To The People", plus a heavy funk workout on "Ego Trippin". Other nice ones include "The Changing Game", "Soul Ain't No New Thing", and "King Of The Real Good Guys". LP, Vinyl record album

Madlib Invazion, 1990s/Early 2000s/2010. Used ... $9.99
Formative Madlib beatcraft – music made by 'Lib from 1990-2000 – crafted into a tight full length album that feels as fresh as ever! History Of The Loop Digga features funky hip hop instrumentals made at a time when he was producing underground beat tapes for himself and the Crate Diggas Palace crew of MCs. Raw Madlib hip hop beats from the early days with spackled with bits of vocals from Madlib & his Quasimoto alter ego, Declaime and others, plus mad vocal samples. At the core, it's excellent leftfield hip hop productions that aptly predicts for the unbridled genius to come, mixed in 2010 and feeling very much of the here and now. 34 shortish tracks on the CD for more than an hour of modern vintage Madlib. Titles include "Static Invazion", "Stakeout", "Rapper X Radio", "Last Day's Music", "Nothing For Nothing", "Live From Outer Space", "Further Adventures Of Walkman Flavor", "Real Days" "CDP Assassins" (Pts 1-6) and a slew of untitled episodes.

Charles MansonLie – The Love & Terror Cult (UK pressing) ... LP
Fierce (UK), 1970. Very Good+ ... $49.99
If Terry Melcher hadn't given Charles Manson the brush off, this album may well have come out on Columbia in the late 60s, and made Manson the rock and roll star he wanted to be! And while we're as disturbed as everyone else by the history of Charlie's violence, we also have to admit that we're kind of taken by this album – and find it a surprisingly good little record in a 60s folksy mode. There's really none of the creepiness that you might expect, and Manson's got a naivete that kind of transforms a Dylan-esque style into one that's overflowing with the raw emotion and personality of Jonathan Richman (but none of the silliness, of course.) Most of the music is recorded in a spare style, with acoustic guitar backing and a bit of additonal vocals – and titles include "Ego", "Look At Your Game Girl", "I'll Never Say Never To Always", "Home Is Where You're Happy", "Don't Do Anything Illegal", and "Sick City".

Monday MichiruPortraits In Time – 2002 to 2013 ... CD
Adventure, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $7.99 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".

Great work from a really well-matched trio of players – a group who remind us yet again that age has no limits in the world of improvised music! In fact, it may well be the maturity of these musicians that makes the whole thing work so well – as the balance between individual identity and group creation is perfect – very strong on each instrumental element, yet never with any overstated ego at all – as Parker, Guy, and Lytton showcase their sense of sounds that are sometimes more understated, but as powerful as a bolder blast from each instrument – with Evan Parker on saxes, Barry Guy on acoustic bass, and Paul Lytton on drums. The album features four long pieces – each dedicated to David Mossman. CD

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".

Other tunes feature vocals from singers Adrian Wilding and Duane Hobson, and the album also features some great instrumentals too – all with a groove that comes from Puddu's own work on drums, bass, and guitars – in a combo that also includes vibes, congas, tenor, and some sweet electric piano and organ.

✨✧ Louie RamirezAli Baba ... LP
Fania, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the wildest albums in the history of Latin music – a crazy batch of Latin soul tunes made by Louie Ramirez under the alter ego of Ali Baba! The album starts with Ali saying "I hope you buy this album. I need the bread to buy a couple of camels. You see, I haven't had a hump in about a month!" – then rolls into a massively grooving tune entitled "Ungawa". This blend of Middle Eastern, African, and Latin themes in such short space – however goofball – really gets at the expansive feel of the set, as Louie's stepping way past the simple format of his earlier years, into the tripped-out styles that the Latin kids were digging in the late 60s. The album's even got a secret message hidden by backward masking – but even the forward bits are great, especially the tunes that cook with English lyrics by Bobby Marin! Titles include "I Dig Rhythm", "Ungawa", "Ali Baba", "Cookin' with Ali", "Yambu", "It's Not What You Say", and "Cachita". LP, Vinyl record album

Make no mistake, the instrumentation is as fantastic as ever – maybe even more so, as the group feel leaner and tighter – with some especially fantastic bass, trumpet, and keyboards.

Late 60s Bosstown psychedelia at its finest – and one of the coolest psych era nuggets on the MGM label! The '68 Ultimate Spinach LP has enough raw, hypnotic rock & roll in the mix to have made it a bonafide hit LP at the time, but there's all kinds of weirder, tripped out and kind of baroque touches that kind of make it one of the stranger LPs to walk on the edge of the mainstream – with oddball spoken word bits and more. Includes "Ego Trip", "Sacrifice Of The Moon (In Four Parts)", "Plastic Raincoats/Hung Up Minds", the 8 minute standout "(Ballad Of The) Hip Death Goddess" certainly one of the more influential jams on the record, plus "Your Head Is Reeling", "Dove In Hawk's Clothing", "Baroque #1", "Funny Freak Parade" and "Pamela".

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".

32 Jazz, 1975. Used ... $18.99
A totally excellent Buster Williams album from the mid 70's, and one of the best (and hardest to find) albums on Muse! 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? CD

Tammy WynetteYour Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad/Take Me To Your World ... CD
Epic/Morello (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of early gems from Tammy Wynette – back to back on a single CD! On Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad, Tammy does her fragile, sadness soaked magic on many tunes that had already done the rounds with Ray Price, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens and others – and makes them all her own – thanks to her immortal vocal talent and perfectly sympathetic production by Billy Sherill. Sherill would never do better then he did for Tammy Wynette – and his production here makes the album a classic – on titles that include "Apartment #9", "Don't Come Home A Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)", "Don't Touch Me", "There Goes My Everything", "Send Me No Roses", "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad", "I'm Not Mine To Give", "I Wound Easy (But I Heal Fast)", and "Almost Persuaded". Take Me To Your World/I Won't Wanna Play House is an album that's named after the two Billy Sherrill singles that came before – but one that's also filled with other great material from the young Tammy Wynette in her prime! Tammy's got this style here that's partly in the older tearstained mode of earlier country singers, but she also rises up with a bit more pride as well – set up by Sherrill's production in a mode that's as nicely understated as it is emotionally powerful. In addition to "Take Me To The World" and "I Don't Wanna Play House", other tunes include "The Phone Call", "It's My Way", "Fuzzy Wuzzy Ego", "Good", "Ode To Billie Jo", "Or Is It Love", "Broadminded", and "Jackson Ain't A Very Big Town".

✨✧ Joe Armon-JonesStarting Today ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Joe Armon Jones sings and plays lots of cool Wurlitzer electric piano on this gem of an album – but the whole thing is maybe even more of a tribute to the warmly collaborative spirit of the contemporary London scene, as it is to the talents of the man himself! There's a nicely fluid sense of stardom here – as differing artists get their time to shine in the spotlight while others recede a bit from track to track – but not in the kind of "leader with guests" version of older soundsystem albums – and instead maybe more as a cosmic vision for the future. Other singers include Asheber, Big Sharer, Ego Ella May, and Oscar Jerome – and musicians include Dylan Jones on trumpet, Moses Boyd on drums, and Nubya Garcia and James Mollison on tenor. Titles include "Starting Today", "Almost Went Too Far", "London's Face", "Ragify", "Outro", and "Mollison Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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. Includes "Run The Jewels", "Banana Clipper" feat Big Boi, "DDFH, "Sea Legs", "No Come Down", "Get It", "Twin Hype Back" feat Prince Paul as his Handsome Boy alter-ego Chest Rockwell, "A Christmas F**king Miracle" and more.

These record wonderfully wraps together a legacy of Italian sounds from the whole late 60s/early 70s soundtrack era – served up here without any sense of ego or need for identity at all – just a commitment to cool, compelling music – filled with plenty of grooves in the process. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Clean Feed (Portugal), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Right NowStarlight (colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Right Now, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Dego & KaidiSo We Gwarn ... CD
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".

Hot Casa (France), 1981. New Copy (pic cover)... $22.99
Two rare grooves from Mac Gregor – a female singer from Martinique who recorded these tracks in the Ivory Coast – in the crossroads city of Abidjan, which definitely had an influence in the music! "Nan Ye Li Kan" has a contemporary club vibe in the rhythms, but lots of rootsy percussion in the grooves – and Mac's vocals are warmed up with some keyboard lines that never dominate too much, but instead create this glow that really makes them shine! There's some great percussion breakdowns in the middle – and the long "Abidjan" is a cut that begins with biguine influence from Martinique, but then moves the track into a clubbier vibe overall! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Amazing music from Chris McGregor and his legendary Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – easily one of the most exciting forces in British jazz in the 70s, and one fo the few who was still sounding their best in the latter half of the decade! McGregor's got as much bite and burn here as with his famous earlier combo, The Blue Notes – and the lineup here boasts ex-members of that group – Dudu Pukwana on alto, Johnny Dyani on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums – all joining together perfectly with McGregor's long-spun piano lines. The ensemble also features other key British players – Mike Osborne on alto, Evan Parker on tenor, Harry Beckett and Mark Charig on trumpets, and Radu Malfatti on trombone – creating this bold horn section that stretches to the skies on waves of soul! Two lengthy pieces "Sunrise On The Sun" and "Kwaholo" bookend the shorter piece "Sonia".

The set captures Freddie at his youthful best – coming off of time doing vocal group work, but really shining strongly as a lead singer on his own – getting this nicely subtle Studio One backing that are heavy on the roots vibe, which makes a nicely deep rhythmic contrast to the sweetly crackling vocals of McGregor! The set came out at the start of the 80s, but it's got an instant classic vibe that resonates almost more strongly with some of the most soulful Jamaican recordings at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Bandulo", "We Need More Love", "What Difference Does It Make", "Go Away Pretty Girl", "Tomorrow Is Like Today", "Bobby Bobylon", "Wine Of Violence", "Gonna Take Over Now", "Rastaman Camp", and "I Am A Revolutionist".

The great Gregory Porter in a very different setting than usual – working here with larger backings from an entire orchestra, as part of the album's tribute to Nat King Cole during his glory days at Capitol Records! The style here isn't the King Cole Trio vibe of the mid 40s, but instead that lush, larger approach of the 50s – when Nat took his jazz roots and transformed them into something even more sophisticated and powerful, at a level that also helped raise both his profile and that of many of his contemporaries – opening the door for generations of musical growth to come. Porter pays back that monumental favor – by turning his amazing vocals loose on a host of standards from the Nat Cole songbook – with core backing by a quartet that features Christian Sands on piano, Reuben Rogers on bass, and Ulysses Owens on drums – plus a bit of guest trumpet from Terence Blanchard. Arrangements and orchestrations are by Vince Mendoza – and titles include "Smile", "Nature Boy", "Love", "Quizas Quizas Quizas", "Mona Lisa", "When Love Was King", "Miss Otis Regrets", "The Christmas Song", "I Wonder Who My Daddy Is", and "Pick Yourself Up".

Gregory Tardy's turned into a reedman with a great ability for complex soundshapes – these beautiful phrasings and passages from his tenor sax – yet always delivered in a way that never fails to swing with soul! On this excellent set, Tardy and his musical associates paint these lovely pictures in sound – but also find a way to groove in the process – stepping off especially well on Gregory's own original compositions, which are taken in very long, vivid performances! The whole lineup is great – and includes Alex Norris on trumpet and Sam Sadigursky on flute – both players whose lines with Tardy really give the album a lot of color and life – plus Bruce Barth on piano, Sean Conly on bass, and Jaimeo Brown on drums. As always with the Steeplechase label these days, there's a real "something extra" to the record – a special quality to the whole thing that continues to make the label one of the most important indies in jazz. Titles include "Gabriel's Groove", "Chasing After The Wind", "The Evidence Of Things Not Seen", "Companion Of My First Heartbeat", "Dance For Marie Do", and "Ashes". CD

Tenorist Gregory Tardy comes on here with a surprising degree of complexity – a range of expressions on his instrument that run from straightforward, to sharply angular, to dark-toned and sonorous – all in the space of a single session! The sense of individual spirit is stronger than ever with Tardy – as he reaches into so many different areas with his well-developed approach to the music – especially sharp on his own compositions, which make up a good amount of the album here. The group also features well-matched trumpet from Philip Dizack, who seems to shift his mood to match Tardy's – and the rest of the quintet includes John Chin on piano, Sean Conly on bass, and Jaimeo Brown on drums. Titles include "The Law Of Biogenesis", "Lil Patient One", "Ancient Of Days", "Song For Joshua", "The Myth Of Privacy", "The Narrow Door", and "Precious Abby". CD

VariousSonda – Muzyka Z Programu Telewizyjnego – Library Music From Sonoton Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith. Also includes one older British cut – "Visitation" by Mike Vickers – used as the main theme of the show! CD

✨✧ Lordamercy & DegoGreen Woods/Can't Remember But I Know/What Does It Take To Come In First ... 12-inch
2000 Black (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little EP – and like so many of the recent releases on 2000 Black, a record that's much shorter than an album, but seems to deliver the same sort of satisfaction! Lordamercy helps give Dego a vibe that's a bit different than usual – as "Green Woods" has these acoustic elements moving through a slow-building tune that has wonderfully spiritual energy – still somewhat broken in the beats, but feeling more like one of those Cadet Records-influenced gems from the last 4 Hero album! "Can't Remember" has more of a funky bassline at the core – but then builds into a keyboard pulse that's especially wonderful – nicely angular, but never failing to groove! "What Does" is maybe the most unusual – more of an 80s-styled number overall – very bassy, with thin keys at the start – but which build out into more cosmic London splendor by the end! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Karlheinz StockhausenAus Den Sieben Tagen – Diego Masson/Ensemble Musique Vivante ... CD
Harmonia Mundi (France), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record that is easily one of Stockhausen's best from the 60s! The set was recorded in paris in that fruitful Parisian year of 1969, and it features performances by longtime collaborator Aloys Kontarsky, plus some great French jazz musicians like Michel Portal and JF Jenny Clark. The piece mixes acoustic instrumental solos with electronics and tam tam – and the resultant sound has much more of an avant jazz feel than a lot of Stockhausen's other work. Portal is especially good, and plays a range of reed instruments, next to Johannes Fritsch, who plays viola on the session. The two pieces are "Fais Voile Vers Le Soleil" and "Liasion". CD

✨✧ Gregory PorterNat King Cole & Me ... CD
Blue Note, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Gregory Porter in a very different setting than usual – working here with larger backings from an entire orchestra, as part of the album's tribute to Nat King Cole during his glory days at Capitol Records! The style here isn't the King Cole Trio vibe of the mid 40s, but instead that lush, larger approach of the 50s – when Nat took his jazz roots and transformed them into something even more sophisticated and powerful, at a level that also helped raise both his profile and that of many of his contemporaries – opening the door for generations of musical growth to come. Porter pays back that monumental favor – by turning his amazing vocals loose on a host of standards from the Nat Cole songbook – with core backing by a quartet that features Christian Sands on piano, Reuben Rogers on bass, and Ulysses Owens on drums – plus a bit of guest trumpet from Terence Blanchard. Arrangements and orchestrations are by Vince Mendoza – and titles include "Smile", "Nature Boy", "Love", "Quizas Quizas Quizas", "Mona Lisa", "When Love Was King", "Miss Otis Regrets", "The Christmas Song", "I Wonder Who My Daddy Is", and "Pick Yourself Up".

Daptone/Voodoo Funk, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ GodiegoHouse ... LP
Columbia/G-Matics (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Whimsical 70s soundtrack work from Godiego – very much in the same spirit as their catchy albums of the time! The tunes here are mostly instrumental, and have a weird mix of styles – a bit of jazz fusion here, some early electro pop there – and a few more tunes that maybe feel more like French soundtrack material of the time – especially the keyboard-heavy variety! There's one great funky groover – titled "Oriental Melon Man", which almost feels like a funk track from Can – and a mellow "Love Theme" with vocals by Ken Narita. There's also a weird blues – "Hungry House Blues" – which is more rural blues in construction – and which is very different next to tunes that include "Eat", "Sweet Dreams Of Days Gone By", "A Letter In The Past", "Main Theme", and "Buggy Boogie".

✨✧ Gregory James EditionProphets Of Soul ... LP
Dakar, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Chris McGregorUp To Earth (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fledgling/Stamford Audio (UK), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A previously-unissued gem from pianist Chris McGregor – recorded at the tail end of the 60s, when McGregor and some of his South African compatriots were really helping to change the sound of the British jazz scene! The album is one of McGregor's strongest ever – an incredibly bold statement in jazz, and one that burns with a brilliance that possibly even surpasses most of the officially-released dates from his scene at the time – a mixture of ESP-like fire from all solo players, touched with some of Chris' more dynamic rhythms – let loose with a really exploratory feeling on a set of longer tracks. The group's a septet – with McGregor on piano, John Surman on bass clarinet and baritone sax, Evan Parker on tenor, Dudu Pukwana on alto, Mongezi Feza on trumpet, Louis Moholo on drums, and either Barre Phillips or Danny Thompson on bass. Joe Boyd produced the original session, and also offers up some great reflections on the music in the liner notes – and titles include "Up To Earth", "Years Ago Now", "Moonlight Aloe", and "Yickytickee/Union Special".

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Two very different slices of work from the Brit easy scene at the start of the 60s – TV music from arranger John Gregory, and a set of swinging vocal sides from the great Mike Sammes Singers! Gregory dominates the first record – which is split between an album of western themes, mostly from American sources – taken at a relatively serious level with added vocals from Sammes' group. The second half of the Gregory tracks are more swinging – and feature work from The Avengers and other 60s crime/spy material. Gregory titles include "The Avengers", "Sunset Strip", "Johnny Staccato", "Route 66", "Tightrope", "Sugarfoot", "Maverick", "Bonanza", "Rawhide", and "Perry Mason". The other part of the collecvtion features excellent material from the Mike Sammes Singers – a mixed male/female group who work in a very jazzy style – clearly schooled in the vocalese of Lambert Hendricks & Ross or The Blue Stars – but also working with more of a lyrical approach, and this sprightly feel that would have been perfect on 60s TV. The arrangements are great – jazzier than they are cheesy – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Pick Yourself Up", "Passing Breeze", "Spring Spring Spring", "Nice To Know You Care", "I Know That You Know", and "Manhattan". Package also fetaures more bonus tracks from the Sammes Singers! CD

University Of Vice (Spain), Mid 30s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Latin sounds from the glory days of the 78rpm format – music that predates most of the more popular modes that would hit our shores in the postwar years – presented on a range of rare singles that pack a nicely powerful punch! Most of these numbers are pretty lively and rhythmic – often with grooves that come as strongly from the percussion as they do from the interplay of guitar, bass, and other stringed instruments – punctuated by piano and topped with some strong vocals too! The set's not much in the way of liner notes, but most of the music here is from the mid 30s, despite the larger date range in the title – and tracks include "Suavecito" by Weeno Bravo & Gody, "El Mondonguero" by Sexteto Columbia, "Negro Bombon" by Orquesta Estrellas Cubanas, "El Panquelero" by Orquesta De Don Azpiazu, "Sabrosona" by Orquesta De Lazaro Quintero, "Pero Que Picazon" by Orquesta Chepin Choven, "Pimienta Y Sal" by Orquesta De Paulina Alvarez, "Invitacion A La Rumba" by Orquesta De Oscar Calle, and "Los Carnavales De Oriente" by Trio Matamoros.

GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousOn Broadway – The Songs Of Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil ... CD
Playback (Australia), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful collection of work from the legendary songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil – and one that goes way past some of the too-familiar hits we've heard from the duo over the years! Instead, this one seems to focus on the less obvious – tunes that might be famous, but recorded by some different artists than the hit versions – or some more unusual songs from Mann and Weil, served up with the kind of readings that should have made them huge! Most work is American, but there's also some tracks from overseas – pulled together from a big range of indie labels in the 60s, with a few cuts from later years too. Titles include "This Is A Love Song" by BJ Thomas, "Bless You" by Wildfire, "Angelica" by Roy Hamilton, "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling" by Dionne Warwick, "It's A Happening World" by The Executives, "Talk To Me Baby" by Barry Mann, "Come On Over To My Place" by Dewey Edwards, "Come Home Baby" by Terry Knight, "I Don't Want To Love You" by Skeeter Davis, "Not You" by Walter Jackson, "See That Boy" by Paris Sisters, "Till We Kissed" by Ray Columbus & The Invaders, "Baby Baby" by Julie Grant, "The Gospel Truth" by The Shirelles, "The Shape Of Things To Come" by The Graduates, "Hungry" by The 5AM Event, and "Glitter & Gold" by Danny & Diego.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Supreme – Maximum 70s & 80s Early Dancehall Sounds (3LP set) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
An album that definitely earns its title – as it marks the renewed strength of the Studio One label in the late 70s – an era when much of the reggae mainstream had moved to the major labels, but the tiny Jamaican indie was well-poised to stand supreme in the new wave of dancehall sides at the time! This set captures the roots of dancehall perfectly – especially the way the style took older rhythms from early reggae and rocksteady, and revamped them with some slightly more contemporary production and digital elements – allowing for the soulful flow that was perfect for the new mix of toasted and sung vocals! The set's got some older Studio One artists really getting back their groove, joined by some newcomers who had an even stronger ear to the scene at the time – and as with previous Studio One sets on Soul Jazz, the overall production and presentation is stupendous. Titles include "Bushmaster" by Brentford Rockers, "A Fool" by Alton Ellis, "Chanting" by Jim Nastic, "Jah A Love You" by Sugar Minott, "Keep That Light" by Johnny Osbourne & The Prophets, "Natty Ten To One" by Dillinger, "Minstral" by Prince Jazzbo, "Still Dubbing" by Dub Specialist, "Rastaman Camp" by Freddie McGregor, "Easy" by Willie Williams, "In Cold Blood" by Jackie Mittoo & Brentford All Stars, "Wine Of Violence" by Freddie McGregor, "Show & Tell" by Horace Andy, "Happy Man" by The Gladiators & Brentford Disco Set, and "Quartet Pound Of Ishen" by Lone Ranger.
