Pointer SistersSo Excited ... LP
Planet, 1982. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A sweet one from The Pointer Sisters – with an opening track that's permanently tattooed to the memory of just about anyone who lived through the era, but better than that, a bunch of great songs that are comparably slept on all these years later! So Excited is a great example of a very solid set of period soulful grooves that you might be tempted to pass on due to extreme exhaustion from the biggest hit – don't do that! There's some great stuff here! The single "I'm So Excited" lit up the early 80s, but this album actually isn't the biggest Pointer Sisters hit of the era, and it's worthy stuff to say the least! Dancefloor ready midtempo groovers with big choruses and insistent grooves galore. Titles include "I'm So Excited", "See How The Love Goes", "Heart Beat", "All Of You", "If You Wanna Get Back Your Lady", "Heart To Heart" and "American Music". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tony WilliamsNative Heart ... CD
Blue Note, 1989. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Really wonderful work from the legendary Tony Williams – a set that has the drummer hitting a whole new sound at the start of the 90s – a groove that's rich and soulful, yet still every bit as sharp as before! The set's straight ahead, and graced with some very youthful energy by a new-generation lineup that includes Wallace Roney on trumpet, Bill Pierce on tenor and soprano sax, Mulgrew Miller on piano, and Robert Hurst on bass – all players who bristle with excitement from the very first notes, expressing a sense of confidence and vision of a new jazz generation that no longer has to battle between its inside and outside impulses. Williams' drumming is superb, and nicely understated at many points – and titles include "Native Heart", "City Of Lights", "Extreme Measures", "Liberty", and "Two Worlds". CD

✨✧ VariousWelcome To Paradise – Italian Dream House 1989 to 1993 Vol 2 ... LP
Safe Trip (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99
A much-needed look at this sometimes-missed chapter in Italian music – a moment when the Italo Club sound of the 80s had transformed into a scene that gave us some of the cleanest, leanest house music of the time! Earlier Italian imports had a big impact on the birth of house music in Chicago – and a few years later, those forward-thinking sounds were used to bring a needed revamp to Italian club as well – as you'll hear in these wonderfully-executed cuts that often have the best spare sounds of the US underground, mixed with some classic elements that warm things up in a mighty nice way! Both volumes are filled with well-chosen cuts that never got the kind of attention they should have at the time – and titles on this second part include "Welcome To Paradise (nightfly version)" by Z99, "Trasparenza" by Extreme, "Il Sole (deep mix)" by Q Base, "Dreams (club)" by The Sky, "Elements" by Leo Anibaldi, "Somnambulism" by Morenas, "Emotions" by 707 Boys, "A Key To Heaven For A Heavenly Trance" by Sasha, and "Octivation" by Transitive Elements.

✨✧ WipersYouth Of America ... LP
Jackpot, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The incredible second album by The Wipers – a record that cements Greg Sage's status as not only a pioneering figure in Pacific Northwest punk/post punk songcraft, but also as one of the more innovative guitarists in that scene. Youth Of America carries on the surprisingly melodic, yet blazing intensity of the debut, but with richer guitar atmosphere. The 10+ minute title track is the biggest step forward in that regard, but the whole record is a underappreciated gem! Other titles include "Taking Too Long", "Can This Be", "Pushing The Extreme", "When Its Over" and "No Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Novi SingersNovi In Wonderland ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the earliest records by the legendary Novi Singers – and a rare MPS set that exposed the group to a larger European audience! Novi hail from Poland, but have a name that's an condensation of the English phrase "new original vocal instruments" – a great summation of the way the quartet use their voices to recreate the feel of instruments in modern jazz – a mode first explored by the Lambert Hendricks & Ross group in the US, but taken to a much farther extreme on this set! The group are supported here by a border-crossing small combo of musicians that includes Zbigniew Namyslowski on alto sax, Idrees Sulieman on trumpet, Adam Makowicz on piano, and Billy Brooks on drums – and the sound is cool, laidback, and very groovy – extremely tight, almost even more so than some of the group's Polish albums! Titles include "The Second Side", "Secret Life", "Kulfon", and "Apartment Under The Roof". CD

✨✧ Eddie HintonVery Extremely Dangerous (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Capricorn/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great set of later southern soul from Eddie Hinton – recorded at Muscle Shoals with a nice 70s take on the classic 60s style of the genre – with powerful vocals from Hinton! The record's surprisingly rootsy for the time – and Eddie sings in a wonderful mode that has plenty of traces of Otis Redding and James Carr. The production has a modern bent, but never in a way that smooths out the real gritty soulfulness – and on these numbers, the album isn't out of step with some of the nice mid 70s work of Arthur Alexander or Paul Kelly. A genuine gem! Titles include "Get Off In It", "I Got The Feeling", "You Got Me Singing", "Yeah Man", Shout Bamalama", "Brand New Man", and "Shoot The Moon". CD

✨✧ VariousOut Of Addis (with bonus download) ... LP
Eastern Connection/Paradise Bangkok (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary sounds from Ethiopia – a scene that's just as rich today as it was during its much-heralded years of the 70s – when some of the most incredible musicians in the world were making a range of genre-transforming styles! The music here is instantly timeless – still filled with a lot of the otherworldly, exotic elements you might know from the classics – but served up by some younger artists in a style that's extremely vibrant – still mostly acoustic at the core, and almost always with that amazing Ethiopian style of bending the vocals around the rhythms in this snakey, haunting way! The recordings were done especially for the collection – and titles include "Mal Ameni" by Abduletif Jemal, "Kuke" by Berhe Raz, "Ali New Biye" by Hanna Mekonnen, "Bire Dama" by Yeaynne Abeba Nigus, "Melka-a Weyno" by Berhanu Haileselassie, and "Yisare Hinena" by Nebiyu Hamdi.

Aged In HarmonyYou're A Melody (3 X 7" set – plus magazine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3x7 inch ... $23.99
A fantastic package of rare soul from the Detroit scene of the 70s – all of the extremely rare singles by Aged In Soul, brought together in an excellent triple 45 collection! The music here has a very spare, indie sort of clubby vibe – a bit like the groove over at P&P Records, but maybe a bit less disco overall – although definitely trying for the dancefloor in the mix of riffing guitar and rhythms! Vocals are often sung by more than one singer – which gives the record a bit of a righteous vibe, and this deeper spirit that really fits the compelling songs – which are all written, arranged, and produced by Arnold Moore, who put the music together. Titles include the original and disco mix of the group's classic "You're A Melody" – plus "I Feel Like Dancing", "Theme For Someone Special", "Dance Awhile", and "Trust In Me". 7-inch, Vinyl record

JD AllenRadio Flyer ... CD
Savant, 2017. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Extremely angular work from tenorist JD Allen – working here with a quartet that's as loose on rhythms as he is on his saxophone solos – coming together in a style that's freewheeling and open-minded! The group features a strong element in the guitar of Liberty Ellman – used in ways that are sometimes quite subtle – with notes that ring out almost in the background of the work on drums by Rudy Royston, and the wonderfully powerful bass of Gregg August – whose force works in nice contrast to the more elliptical sounds coming from the drums and guitar. Allen's horn hangs somewhere in a space between both forces – shifting effortlessly through space, and twisting and turning in the process – serving up fantastic flurries of dark-edged sound on the album's long tracks. Royston is amazing – the album's a great testament to his growing power in recent years – and titles include "Daedalus", "Ghost Dance"," Heureux", "Radio Flyer", "Sitting Bull", and "The Angelus Bell".

Ernie AndrewsErnie Andrews Sings With The Fuzzy Kane Trio ... LP
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
Ernie takes a hip trip from the west coast, and hooks up with the great Fuzzy Kane Trio – an extremely soulful outfit that flourished in the Baltimore scene of the late 60s, but only ever cut one other album on their own. Ernie's still in the pop soul vocal style of earlier albums – a mode that's got a bit of Lou Rawls, and some of the other ambitious crossover intentions of the LA scene of the 60s – but Fuzzy's work on the acoustic piano sweetly souls up the best tracks, and the album features some nice obscure tunes – which pushes it past the usual session of this sort. Titles include "Nearly", "July the 12th, 1939", "Say Hello To Yesterday", "Time To Hit The Street Again", "Free The People", and "Sometime When You're Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album

AntibalasAntibalas ... CD
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99 14.99
Amazing sounds from one of the best funky combos anywhere – ever! Antibalas have certainly risen to fame in the years since we first heard their Afro-styled grooves – working famously in the Fela musical, and reaching generations of ears with their own brilliant records. Yet throughout it all, they've always stayed true to their sound – and, if anything, are even sharper, tighter, and funkier than before – all extremely adept not only at playing their instruments, but at hitting the right sort of sound to cut through all the BS that was holding back funky Afro grooves for years! Part of that sound comes from superb Daptone production by Gabriel Roth – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean and full of energy. But the core credit really goes to the group – who never cease to amaze us here – and continually come up with fresh sounds on their keyboards and horns – and inventive rhythms to match! Titles include "Dirty Money", "The Rat Catcher", "Ari Degbe", "Ibeji", "Sare Kon Kon", and "Him Belly No Go Sweet". CD

Atlantic StarrBrilliance ... LP
A&M, 1982. Very Good ... $3.99
The title's certainly right on this one – because Atlantic Starr serve up a really brilliant blend of electro funk and mainstream soul – balanced with that near-perfect sound that made them one of the best groups of their generation! Despite the size of the combo, the sound is relatively lean – a very focused balance of basslines, keyboards, and some tightly snapping 80s groove rhythms – served up with vocals that warmly cascade over the tops of the tunes, but usually take a second seat to the extremely compelling instrumentation. The sound is polished, but never too slick – and the group are a great example of how well soul from this time could sound when done just the right way! Titles include "Love Me Down", "Sexy Dancer", "Circles", "Love Moves", "Your Love Finally Ran Out", and "You're The One". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerReevaluations – The Impulse Years ... LP
Impulse, Late 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A great collection of Ayler's late work for Impulse – some of his most unusual sides ever cut to wax, and very different from his work on labels like ESP. The general feel is one of searching – as Ayler works in a number of different modes to try to reach new audiences, and hit new sounds. Some of these modes don't always work, but there's a rich emotional honesty to most of the album that keeps things extremely interesting, whatever the format. Titles include "Again Comes The Rising Of The Sun", "For John Coltrane", "Water Music", "Oh! Love Of Life", "Love Cry", "Drudgery", "New Ghosts", and "Holy Ghost". Includes a number of tracks that haven't been in print for years! LP, Vinyl record album

Alice Babs & Duke EllingtonSerenade To Sweden ... CD
Reprise/Real Gone, 1963. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A beautiful and rare recording – both for singer Alice Babs, and Duke Ellington himself! The session was cut in Paris in 1963 – and it's a moody, intimate album that features Duke backing up Alice with arrangements that are quieter and more subtle than those used with most other Ellington-related singers. Alice is extremely great on the set – and often sings in weird wordless vocals – not really scatting, but more of a horn based-style that's very icy and cool. The whole thing's great – much greater even than the sum of its two famous parts – and titles include "Serenade To Sweden", "Stoona", "La De Doody Doo", "Strange Visitor", "Come Sunday", "Babsie", and "Untitled Lullaby".

Sory BambaSory Bamba Du Mali ... LP
Sonafric/Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Fantastic grooves from Sory Bamba – aka Sorry Bamba – sharp-edged, angular tracks that move at a similar pace to other late 70s Afro Funk – but with lots more weird and rough-edged touches! The recording quality isn't nearly as polished as some other efforts from the date – which makes the percussion sound extra-raw – and adds an odd edge to the few electric elements, which include some incredible moogy lines at some points! Vocals are often chanted – added by the group over the wonderfully intense instrumentation – and there's definitely some more familiar Malian elements in the music, but often taken to nicely weird extremes. Titles include "Nani Nani", "Mayel", "Kanaga 78", "Bayadjourou", "Tjamantie Kolo", and "N'Nebakaidi". LP, Vinyl record album

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1971. Used ... $12.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was a bit straighter – although still pretty hip – and this time around, he's bringing in a wide range of elements – Brazilian bits, folksy touches, and more – all served up with an approach that's as uniquely personal as work by other Saravah artists, like Brigitte Fontaine or Areski! Barouh's a brilliant writer and singer, and his work is a lost link in a tradition that spans Caetano Veloso, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, and others – crucially overlooked on this side of the Atlantic, and extremely important to us over the years. Titles include "De L'Amour A L'Amour", "Le Courage D'Aimer", "80 AB", "La Foret", "Le Petit Cheval De Bois", "Le Petit Cine", and "Paris Wellington". CD features bonus tracks – "Le Naufrage", "Perdu", "Ca Va Ca Vient (cinema version)", and "80 AB". CD

William BasinskiShadow In Time ... CD
2062, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Fantastic sounds from William Basinksi – an artist with an approach that's like nobody else we can think of, and which makes these two tracks sound very much in keeping with his famous Disintegration Loops project! As with that masterpiece, the work here revolves around the use of tape loops – with Basinski playing tenor sax and a Voyetra 8 synth on one track – and the synth and more electronics on the other – all processed in these slow-building, deeply resonant passages that almost make William the "wall of sound" maestro of the minimalist scene. The album features two long tracks, both extremely beautiful – "For David Robert Jones", a tribute to the late Bowie, and "A Shadow In Time". CD

Beginning Of The EndNassau Funk ... CD
Alston/Playback, Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Fantastic funk from Beginning Of The End – one of the coolest, grooviest, most unique funk groups of the 70s – and one who've got a real criss-crossing of styles in their sound! As you'd guess from the title, these guys hail from Nassau, in the Bahamas – but their sound is hardly the stale calypso of the earlier generation, or some of the more familiar island hybrids that were playing for the tourists. Instead, these guys completely reinvent funk from the ground up – adding in lots of their own special styles of rhythm and inflection, with elements that were learned from their home scene, but then refitted for a mode that's much more American funk overall – making these guys one of the few island acts to challenge the likes of Fatback or Kool & The Gang! The set's an extremely well-chosen batch of tracks from the group's few recordings – and titles include the classic "Funky Nassau (parts 1 & 2)", plus "Monkey Tamarind", "Super Woman", "Doin The Funky Do", "That's What I Get", "When Se Made Me Promise", "In The Deep Bahamian Boogie", "Fishman", "Pretty Girl", "I've Got The News", "Bluestrain", "Jump In The Water", "Gee Whiz It's Christmas", "Sleep On Dream On", "Trip To Nowhere", and "Come Down Baby".

A tight little live set from Jorge Ben – recorded for MTV, but easily as great as any of his other live recordings in Brazil. The group's tight and warm, with a really soulful feel and a bouncing groove that returns Jorge's sound to earlier years. Tracks include a number of classic numbers redone in ways that really open them up – and Jorge's extremely charming in this intimate setting, showing he hasn't lost his edge at all! Titles include "Taj Mahal", "Filho Maravilha", "Pais Tropical", "Que Pena", "Que Maravilha", "Mas Que Nada", "Chove Chuva", and "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas". CD

Little Big Beat/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $4.99 14.99
Pretty wonderful sounds from Adam Ben Ezra – an artist who works here completely solo, but with a flowing range of sounds that's completely hypnotizing overall! Ezra's a bassist at heart, but also plays piano and clarinet on the record – and also vocalizes a bit, and adds in some foot stomps too – all with this earthy, organic approach to his instruments that really opens up their sonic possibilities, while still also keeping things in a forward-moving, always-swinging style! The work on bass is especially wonderful – as Adam's strong, deep notes are extremely powerful – and often offset by more unusual touches on the strings – not in a gimmicky way, but just fresh sonic expressions. Titles include "Prayer", "Silk Road", "Balagusto", "Can't Stop Running", "Brown Piano", and "India Time". CD

Tony BennettCloud 7 ... CD
Columbia, 1955. Used ... $4.99
One of Tony Bennett's greatest jazz sessions – a sublime mid 50s outing that features small combo backing from guitarist Chuck Wayne! The setting is extremely spare for the time – a real contrast from the higher drama of some of Tony's 50s chart hits, and the kind of a record that really lets him open up with the warmer vocal tones that could sometimes be lost on the pop numbers. Wayne's guitar is great too, really chromatic and moody, bringing out the darker colors in the tunes nicely. Other players include Dave Schildkraut on alto and Al Cohn on tenor – and titles include "Darn That Dream", "My Reverie", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "My Heart Tells Me", "Old Devil Moon", and "Love Letters".

Nato (France), 1986. Used ... $9.99
One of John Zorn's great genre-crossing projects of the 80s – a really playful and extremely experimental batch of tracks done in the very open freedom of the legendary Nato label! The set features Zorn on alto sax and clarinet, plus a host of other interesting musical elements – and it's a very collaborative effort, with Steve Beresford on keyboards, trumpet, guitar, and a million other things – definitely in his more avant side of the spectrum – plus David Toop on guitar and a range of other sonic sources – and vocalist Tonie Marshall, whose contributions are often nice and subtle. There's a great sense of energy here that really recalls the optimism of this moment in music – a time when it seemed that just about anything was possible on sessions like this! Titles include "Dumb Boxer", "Lady Whirlwind", "Shockproof", "Du Gris", "King Cobra", "Chien Pei Pei", and "Jayne Mansfield". CD

Xanadu, 1978. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Bob Berg's always been a heck of a great tenor player, but he sounds especially great on this early album as a leader – a tight and soulful session cut with Cedar Walton on keyboards, Al Foster on drums, and Tom Harrell on trumpet! The groove here is freewheeling but straightforward – a bit like the Art Blakey style of the Prestige years – in which the band pulsates with a highly rhythmic approach, but the soloists soar on even farther with their own sense of life and energy. The group also features electric bass and a bit of congas, which brings a slightly Latin flavor to a few cuts – and overall, the album's an extremely soulful set that really deserves greater mention. Titles include "Pauletta", "Neptune", "This Masquerade", "Magic Carpet", and "Shapes". LP, Vinyl record album

Binker & Moses (Binker Golding/Moses Boyd)Journey To The Mountain Of Forever ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.99
That's quite a cover for a record by Binker & Moses – especially as the duo's always quite down-to-earth, and not nearly the kind of proggish act you might expect from the album's image! Yet they've also expanded a bit this time around – not into a full-jamming group, as they mostly stick in their duo mode of Binker Golding on tenor and Moses Boyd on drums – but they also allow for some great guest work from Evan Parker on tenor and soprano, and Byron Wallen on trumpet – two musicians who show the heady company the duo can keep after just a few short years of recording! The album also features a bit of harp, tabla, and additional drums – but as on their wonderful debut, the core energy still comes from the combination of tenor and drums – used in a way that's raw and stripped-down, but still extremely powerful and moving. There's even more spiritual energy here than the first time around – and titles include "Reverse Genesis", "The Departure", "Trees On Fire", "The Shaman's Chant", "Gifts From The Vibrations Of Light", "The Voice Of Besbunu", and "Echoes From The Other Side Of The Mountain".

Paul BleyImprovisie ... LP
America/Bamboo (France), 1972. New Copy ... $23.99
Incredible work from Paul Bley – and a record that captures him in his excellent electric period, working in a different setting than we've heard him elsewhere! The group on the set is a trio – one that matches Bley's work on electric piano and synthesizer with percussion from Han Bennink and vocals, piano, bass, and additional synthesizer from a young Annette Peacock! Peacock is especially restrained on the record – especially if you only know her later, straighter work – and her contribution here is wonderfully subtle and extremely lovely. Side one features the track "Improvisie", a free improvisation with Bley on electric piano and synthesizer – and tonalities are as "out" as the playing, which is generally quite spacious and dynamic – though hardly quiet. The second side features a Peacock tune titled "Touching" that's a bit more intense – very much in the spirit of the work on the first side, and a unique slice of magic from this one-off session! LP, Vinyl record album
