Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
A whole new setting for tenorist Eric Alexander – and a great one too! The album's got Alexander in a bossa-styled mode – but less like the facile bossa jazz projects of the 60s than some of the harder-edged ones you'd get from players like Ike Quebec or Charlie Rouse! The sharpness of the rhythms have a good deal to do with the strength of the record – played by familiar Alexander associates Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but at a level that's very different than their usual accompaniment, which really shows their diversity. Titles include "Recado Bossa Nova", "Corcovado", "Manteca", "Journey", "So In Love", and "Mambo Inn". CD

Eric AlexanderSecond Impression ... CD
High Note, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
The music of Eric Alexander never fails to amaze us – and even though we own dozens of his albums from previous years, a record like this can make us sit up and take immediate notice all over again! Alexander's not just a great tenorist, he's also a great tunesmith – able to roll out not just an impeccable solo of his own, but also always make sure that the whole tune is equally great – served up here in the wonderful unity of Harold Mabern on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – long-familiar players who have a lot to do with the overall strength of the album! Mabern plays a bit of Fender Rhodes on a few tracks – which makes for a nice change and a slightly different mood – and titles include "So Many Stars", "Jennie's Dance", "T Bone Steak", "Frenzy", "Full House", and "Blues For Mo".

Federico Bonifazi with Eric AlexanderYou'll See ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
A fantastic record from Italian pianist Federico Bonifazi – one that comes out of time recently spent in New York city, where he developed a fast friendship with bassist John Webber – whose work on the set really sounds tremendous! At some level, the record might be thought of as one of Webber's records with tenorist Eric Alexander – as Alexander makes a wonderful presence here, alongside drummer Jimmy Cobb, who completes the group – but there's also a very special relationship between Webber and Bonifazi, one that has the bassist's strong lines finding a new sense of color and life amidst Federico's great piano lines and original compositions – music that flows beautifully, and seems to give Alexander a different sort of voice as well. That's not to say that the American players aren't every bit as compelling as ever – because they are – just to say that Bonifazi's leadership helps the group flower into something new, and very special. Titles include "Steps House", "Sadness For You", "Suspended In The Air", "Escape", and "The Chicken". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsEvery One Of Us ... CD
MGM/BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
Another gem from The Animals' overlooked late 60s years on MGM – a time when the group were easily making some of the most inventive music on the label! The styles here are even wider than before – definitely an attempt to showcase "every one of us" that made up the group – in a blend of spacey sounds, gentle folksy moments, and some of the rougher tones of previous MGM records. Many titles were written only by Burdon – a bit of a change from before – and showcase an increased use of acoustic guitar alongside his bleak vocals. Titles include "The Immigrant Lad", "Year Of The Guru", "Serenade To A Sweet Lady", "White Houses", "New York 1963/America 1968", and "Uppers & Downers". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ron Carter with Eric Dolphy & Mal WaldronWhere? ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1961. Used ... $3.99
A haunting and unusual batch of tracks from bassist Ron Carter – working here with a group that includes spiritual modernists Eric Dolphy on reeds and Mal Waldron on piano – both players who really add a lot to the set! In a way, the album's more like Dolphy's own work as a leader from the time than the sort of music usually associated with Carter – and Ron really seems to let the reedman shape the overall sound of the set with his tremendous work on alto, flute, and bass clarinet. Carter plays a bit of cello in addition to his bass – giving the record a nicely eerie sound at points – and Waldron's piano, as always, is excellent during this point in his career. Titles include Randy Weston's "Where" and "Saucer Eyes", plus "Bass Duet", which features Carter dueting with George Duvivier, and a very nice version of "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise". CD

DE3 (Duane Eubanks/Eric McPherson/Dezron Douglas)DE3 – Live At Maxwells ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 16.98
Vital live recordings with the DE3 trio – trumpeter Duane Eubanks, drummer Eric McPherson and bassist Dezron Douglas – recorded at Maxwell's Drum Shop in NYC! Captured over 2 dates in spring and summer 2015, it's an impressive snapshot of the group playing with boundless energy and creative freedom in an intimate space. The songs are mostly in the 5 to 6 minute range, and are held tight by one compositional thread or another – be it a revolving bass line, trumpet or drum pattern, but with lots of space for improvisation. As much as we loved the Duane Eubanks quintet work in the previous couple years, something about this trio setting clicks even stronger for us! Includes "Brainfreeze", "A Slight Taste", "Little Johnny C Blues", "Saturday Moanin'", "Strokish", "Ebony Slick" and "Little Rock". CD

Eric DolphyBerlin Concerts ... LP
Enja/Doxy, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... About November 1, 2016 (delayed)
Wonderful work by Dolphy – as essential to his catalog as any of his albums on Prestige from the same time! Although Dolphy broke plenty of musical barriers in the studio, to our ears, it was always in a live setting that he sounded best – freely exploring the kind of space his playing opened up, hitting notes that were more soulful and spiritual than many that he ever recorded on his studio sides. This set is a perfect example of that trend – as Dolphy's working here with a strong straight jazz combo, one that includes the great Benny Bailey on trumpet, in a set that features familiar tunes, turned into haunting explorations of Dolphy's new jazz idiom. One of the highlights is an incredible 15 minute version of Randy Weston's "Hi Fly", with Dolphy doing great work on flute – and other tunes include "Hot House", "Geewee", "When Lights Are Low", "I'll Remember April", and "The Meeting".

✨✧ Eric DolphyComplete Last Recordings ... CD
Norma (Japan), 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A gem of a record – Eric Dolphy's last studio session, recorded in Paris with some very surprising guest stars! The work is really tremendous – every bit as great as Dolphy's monumental studio albums for Prestige, and written and performed with a similar blend of the free, the lyrical, the avant, and the soulful! Of course, the players help a lot – as the group includes Donald Byrd on trumpet, Nathan Davis on tenor, and the great Jack Dieval on piano. Titles include "245", "GW", "Serene", "Naima", and "Springtime". CD

Eric DolphyOut There ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... $2.99
Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader – and already a bold step forward from the first! The format here changes from the more standard lineup of before – as Dolphy drops out other horn players, loses the piano, and brings the cello of Ron Carter into the frontline! Backing is by the bass of George Duvivier and the drums of Roy Haynes – and the mix of cello and bass creates the freely spirited sound that allows Dolphy to take off on even freer solo flights. The session has a very moody, very dark feel – especially on the tracks where Dolphy is playing B flat and bass clarinet – and titles include "The Baron", "Eclipse", "Sketch Of Melba", "Feathers", and "17 West".

Eric DolphyOutward Bound ... CD
New Jazz/OJC, 1960. Used ... $3.99
Eric Dolphy's first album ever as a leader – recorded almost immediately after his arrival on the New York scene! The sound here is already bolder and stronger than the Dolphy experiments on the west coast – sharp-edged and freely exploratory, in a way that pushes the playful lyricism of the Chico Hamilton years aside, and reaches out into the new territory hinted at by the title! The group is a quintet that features Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Jaki Byard on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – and the overall sound is a beautiful mix of modernist hard bop and some of Dolphy's later freer styles. Dolphy plays his usual mix of alto, flute, and bass clarinet – and the tracks include "245", "Miss Toni", "Les", and "GW". CD

Eric Dolphy & Booker LittleMemorial Album – Recorded Live At The Five Spot (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1964. Used ... $9.99
Part 3 to the Five Spot recordings from Eric Dolphy – issued here as a "memorial" to Booker Little, even though Little was still alive for the recording! The album features especially searing work from Dolphy, and was part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording. The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that includes Booker Little on trumpet, Mal Waldron on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Despite the length of the tracks, Dolphy isn't as far out as on later European live recordings – but the performance is a great example of his inventiveness within a mainstream structure, and the modernist tendencies of both Waldron and Little shine very brightly in the set. The concert was one of Little's last (and greatest) recordings – and titles include "Number Eight" and "Booker's Waltz". CD

Eric Dolphy with Booker LittleFar Cry ... LP
Prestige/OJC, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Eric Dolphy's first meeting in the studio with trumpeter Booker Little – a brilliant batch of modernism that's easily one of the hippest records Little ever worked on! The Dolphy heard here is Eric at his most inventive – sharp-edged and angular one minute, then spiritually lyrical the next – playing flute, bass clarinet, and alto sax equally well on the record – and somehow managing to get Little to share his inspiration perfectly on every number. Other players include Jaki Byard on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – a rhythm team whose abilities are a big part of the success of the record – and titles include "Far Cry", "Mrs Parker Of KC", "Left Alone", "Ode To Charlie Parker", and "Miss Ann".

Island, 1986. Used 2CD ... $8.99
Paid In Full, indeed. Eric B & Rakim's seminal album still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of what was then the new school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise it's due! If you don't respect this album, you don't know a damn thing. Includes the immortal "I Ain't No Joke", "Eric B Is In The Cut", "I Know You Got Soul", "Move The Crowd", "Paid in Full", "Chinese Arithmetic", and "Eric B. Is President". Universal gives it the royal treatment for this new issue! It's a two disc set with the remastered album standing gloriously on its own on disc one – with lots of rare remixes on the bonus disc: Several "Paid In Full" mixes including 7 Minutes Of Madness – Coldcut rmx" and others, I Know You Got Soul (Richie Rich Megamix), "Move The Crowd" (Wild Bunch rmx), "I Know You Got Soul" (vocal and dub versions) and lots more, new liner notes, photos and other details, and the CD is enhanced with the video for "Paid In Full".

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Money Records Vol 2 ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer soul from the LA underground of the late 60s – a motherlode of work from west coast indie Money Records! The label is every bit as hip as you'd guess from its name – a right on the money blend of the best elements in soul at the time – all served up with some of the tightest production west of the Mississippi, and an undeniable ear for the grittiest side of a groove. There's plenty of great twists and turns to many of these tracks – and in a way, the Money sound of this time reminds us a fair bit of the best work coming from Detroit indies operating in the shadows of Motown. Yet the grooves here are also a fair bit fresher because they're often less familiar – never over-compiled like some of the Motor City tracks, and perfectly presented here with top-shelf Kent Soul standards, both in the mastering and notes that go with the set! Titles include a few previously unissued numbers – with 24 tracks that include "Losing You" by Eddie Horan, "I Thought It Over" by Gwenn Stewart, "My Belief" by The MM's & The Peanuts, "Too Late Now" by The Mysteries, "Strange Things Are Happening To Me" by Eric Williams, "Living A Lie" by Bobby Angelle, "Love Insurance" by Henry Strogin, "The Dance Is Over" by Bettye Swann, "Lost My Love Yesterday" by The Larks, "Ain't That Kinda Sad" by The Question Marks, "Should I Take A Chance" by Ted Walters, "Tam A Rind" by Hank Jacobs & The TKOs, and "You Bet I Would" by Pat Livingston.

✨✧ VariousVanguard Folk Rock Album ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little set that will completely transform your understanding of folk music in the 60s – one that picks up with a second waves of folkies who were really opening their minds to the changes in rock music at the time! The styles here all blur wonderfully – as more standard 60s folk music comes into play with psychedelic instrumentation, tripped-out production, harmony pop, and a range of different modes that all make for some incredibly far-reaching work. All tunes come from the Vanguard Records catalog – a label who were making some initial waves in the early 60s, but who really came into their own during this heady era – and helped set the tone for the huge singer/songwriter boom in the mainstream years to come. The set features a total of 22 tracks from Vanguard – titles that include "Honey" by Eric Anderson, "Back On The Street Again" by Steve Gillette, "Someone To Talk My Troubles To" by Judy Roderick, "No Rest For The Weary" and "You'll Never Know What's In My Heart" by The Hi-Five, "Reason To Believe" by Patrick Sky, "Young Blues" by The Vagrants, "Changes" by Jonathan & Leigh, "Reno Nevada" by Richard & Mimi Farina, "January Morning" and "When I Was A Cowboy" by Ian & Sylvia, and "Long Black Cadillac" by Jackie Washington.

✨✧ VariousWhen The Sun Sets Over Carlton – Melbourne's Countercultural Inner City Rock Scene Of The 70s ... CD
Festival/Warner (Australia), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A very cool collection of work from the Australian scene of the 70s – most of which we'd never heard before! This material isn't totally underground – but given the separation of space between Melbourne and the rest of the world at the time, the collection is an under-tapped vein of really creative material from a scene that cared little about standard labels, conventional styles, or even much of a wider audience! Bits of glammy styles, early punk, and other familiar modes show their heads from time to time – but overall, there's a really individual spirit to most of the groups and their music – styles and a quality level that could climb big on the charts, but hardly cared if they made it or not. The package features great notes on the Melbourne scene and the bands at the time – and titles include "I Love My Car" by Martin Arminger, "Rozalyn" by Stiletto, "I See Red" by The Dots, "Only The Lonely Hearted" by Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons, "Saturday Night" by Daddy Cool, "Who Listens To The Radio" by The Sports, "Hard Drugs" by Mighty Kong, "Carlton (Lygon Street Limbo)" by Skyhooks, "Comin Back For More" by Mark Gillespie, "The Bright Boy" by Eric Gradman Man & Machine, "I'll Be A Dag For You Baby" by Fabulous Nudes, and "Roll That Reefer" by Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band. 45 tracks in all!

Roland AlexanderPleasure Bent ... LP
New Jazz/Prestige, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the few albums ever cut by this incredible tenor sax player – a wonderful talent that we only know from a handful of records – all of which we love! This date's got a bold sound that very much lives up to its cover, and Alexander's placement on Prestige's New Jazz label – a vibrant sound that's got elements of the 60s underground of Eric Dolphy or Ken McIntyre, but which also has a more flowing, soulful vibe as well – almost a precursor to later spiritual jazz elements of the 70s. No surprise, the great Marcus Belgrave is in the quintet on trumpet – as is Ronnie Mathews on piano, with rhythm support from Gene Taylor on bass and Clarence Stroman on drums. Almost all tracks are originals – and titles include "I'll Be Around", "Dorman Road", "Lil's Blues", and "Orders To Take Out". LP, Vinyl record album
