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

Gato BarbieriCaliente ... LP
A&M, 1976. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

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

James Taylor QuartetHammond-Ology – Best Of JTQ ... CD
Castle/Sequel (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. Used 2 CDs ... $14.99
The ultimate selection of tunes by one of the best funky organ players of recent years! Way back when the Desco crowd were still playing their close-n-plays, James Taylor was part of the British rare groove scene – working through the mod moves of the mid 80s, into a funkier 70s sound as the 90s approached. Taylor had a pivotal role in the development of the music called "acid jazz", but also had a far-reaching talent that took him from the Hammond-driven grooves of Jimmy Smith and Jack McDuff, into spacious territory of 70s groovers like Johnny Hammond and Charles Earland. The package is a wonderful one – 2 CDs containing a total of 35 tunes, spanning sounds that include blacksploitation funk, organ soul jazz, funky club groovers, and even some great straight soul tunes. Titles include "Stepping Into My Life" and "Love Will Keep Us Together", with Allison Limerick on vocals, "Love The Life", "See A Brighter Day", and "Hope & Pray", with Noel McKoy on vocals – and the instrumentals "Blow Up", "Car Chase", "The Spyder", "Theme From Starsky & Hutch", "Europa", "Vanishing Point", "In The Hand Of The Inevitable", "Senouci", "Mr C", "Faster Pussycat", "Message From Sicily", "Down By The River", "Theme From Tomorrow People", and "Higher World".

Gruppo Jazz MarcaMitteleuropa ... CD
Arision (UK), 1985. Used ... $2.99
An expanded effort from Gruppo Jazz Marca – one that stretches the Italian trio's lineup to a nine-piece unit with the addition of horns, vibes, and acoustic guitar! The sweetly lyrical sound of the trio is still very firmly in place here, but the added instruments take their sound to a whole new level – one that's filled with soaring trumpet, alto, and tenor sax solos – and which gets some especially nice rhythmic inflections from the guitar! There's a leaping, joyous quality to the music that's totally great – very much in keeping with the best 70s work from the Dire label, despite the mid 80s date of the session. And the record itself is a great example of the under-discovered rich legacy of Italian jazz of the 80s – finally getting its due these many years later! Titles include "Citta Di Frontiera", "Anamaria", "Three Dorico Time", "Blues Transfert", and "Dedalus". CD
