✨✧ Radames GnattaliRadames Na Europa – Com Seu Sexteto E Edu ... CD
Odeon/Universal (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.)

✨✧ StockhausenMomente – Gloria Davy/Chor Des WDR Musique Viva ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1972. Used 3LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Stockhausen's more extended compositions, and a haunting piece composed for soprano, choir groups, and a very strange mix of instruments – including lots of weird percussion, and some very spooky electric organ. There's a solo soprano out front, who punctuates the piece with a lot of avant garde vocals, and she's backed up by 4 different small groups of singers. The real highlight, though, is the instrumentation, as the mix of odd percussion and electric organ has an almost electronic music feel in parts, with lots of spare, strange, random bits. This 3 LP set comes in a box, with a full booklet on the music. It includes a full performance of the "Europa Version" of the work, plus an excerpt from the 1965 "Donaueschinger Version". LP, Vinyl record album
