Radames GnattaliRadames Na Europa – Com Seu Sexteto E Edu ... CD
Odeon/Universal (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderful work by one of Brazil's first great arrangers of the 20th century! The set features whimsical instrumentals by the sextet of Radames Gnattali – versions of Brazilian standards, turned on their heads with some very odd instrumentation! The tunes feature harmonica, accordion, guitar, and lots of percussion – all dancing together in jagged and playful little grooves that are samba at their roots, but inflected with some hip early 60s instrumental modes too! The blend is great, and very compelling from a hi-fi sort of perspective – sounds that are even more dynamic than usual for a typical Brazilian session of the time, and a great way of localizing modes that were coming into play in the US scene in the late 50s. Titles include "A Felicidade", "Primeiro Amor", "Seu Ataulfo", "Aquarela Do Brasil", and "Batuque". CD

✨✧ Don Cherry & Latif KhanMusic/Sangam (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Europa/Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1978/1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the earthiest albums ever from Don Cherry – a set of duets with tabla player Latif Khan – recorded in Paris in the late 70s, and featuring Cherry in a range of soulful modes! Don doesn't just play his usual trumpet – but keyboards, flute, gong, and other percussion as well – a really incredible blend of instruments that's often overdubbed, so that Cherry's already adding in a few layers of his own sound before Khan comes in with some really rocking work on tablas! The blend of global and jazz influences is perfect – and the album's as much of a treasure as Cherry's equally important Sonet sessions of the 70s. Titles include "Rhythm 58 1/4", "One Dance", "Air Mail", "Untitled", and "Sangam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition reissue of 1000 copies.)

Gato BarbieriCaliente ... LP
A&M, 1976. Sealed ... $7.99
One of Gato Barbieri's later recordings – but don't hold that against it! The set's a smoother effort than most of Gato's earlier work, but it's also still pretty darn soulful – done in a way that allows plenty of space for his raspy reed work on tenor to flow over the top of larger arrangements that have a nice electric touch. Players include Eric Gale and Joe Beck on guitars, Don Grolnick on keyboards, and Mtume and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – both of whom give the tunes a nice earthy undercurrent when needed. And while we might be put off by the larger, more heavily-arranged sound – Gato himself is still in charge of the charts, and keeps things nicely focused in a soulfully expressive way! Titles include "Firelies", "Fiesta", "Europa", "Don't Cry Rochelle", "Behind The Rain", "Los Desperados", and "I Want You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed, with hype sticker.)

Konrad ElfersFuneral In Berlin (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Intrada, 1967. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the grooviest Michael Caine spy films of the 60s – given an equally groovy soundtrack by Konrad Elfers! We don't know Elfers from other work of the time, but this album's a real standout – not the usual spy sort of work, although still with some great jazzy touches at times – including some wonderful reed passages – which are then mixed with some of the more tense, thriller-style elements that are served up with larger orchestrations – but always given this odd, offbeat style that reflects the unusual feel of Caine's films as Harry Palmer in the 60s. Titles include "The Funeral", "Fate Of Two Pawns", "Skating Rendezvous At Europa Centre", "Palmer Meets Samantha", and "Checkpoint Charlie". New version features better mastering than the previous CD, new notes, and four bonus tracks too! CD
