Sonny CrissJazz USA (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Imperial/EMI (Japan), 1956. Used ... $16.99
One of Sonny Criss' classic albums for Imperial – a brilliant batch of LA bop from the 50s, with an impeccable sound throughout! Criss had a tone like nobody else on the alto – and here, he's at the height of his early powers – neither blowing too hard, nor going for boppish tricks – and instead settling into an amazing groove with a sense of power, confidence, and extreme "rightness" as to his choice of notes! The album's right on the money throughout – exactly the kind of set that lives up to our lifetime devotion to Sonny's music – and the whole thing's great, with tracks that include "West Coast Blues", "Criss Cross", "Ham's Blues", and "Blue Friday".

Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, and some birdcalls sung by the members of the group! The set's a mix of strange songs from strange sources, all given the sublime Denny twist – and titles include "Singing Bamboos", "Escales", "August Bells", "Ebb Tide", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Soshu Night Serenade".

Novi SingersNovi In Wonderland ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $23.99
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

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

✨✧ VariousWelcome To Paradise – Italian Dream House 1989 to 1993 Vol 2 ... LP
Safe Trip (Netherlands), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
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.

Eddie HintonVery Extremely Dangerous (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Capricorn/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
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

✨✧ VariousNorthern Soul's Classiest Rarities 2 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classy, but never snoozy – as the set's got a top-shelf assortment of Northern Soul dancefloor numbers all the way through! As with the first volume, this batch of tunes is a really well-done collection – one that gets way past all the dodgy compilations and Northern Soul bootlegs on the market, and which features some incredibly rare tunes and previously unissued numbers – all hand-picked for the set by Ace/Kent's in-house soul maestro Ady Croasdell! A few of the names on the collection are familiar ones, but they're represented here by numbers that we'd never heard before – and the bulk of the CD features tunes by artists that are even lesser-known, even to fans of the genre. 24 tracks in all, with notes on every tune by Ady – and titles that include "I Finally Got Wise" by Billy Keen, "It Ain't' What I Do" by Peggy Paxton, "Faith & Understanding" by The Magicians, "Two Lovers" by The Voice Masters, "I'm Waiting" by Bill Bush, "I Can't Speak" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "How I Need Your Love" by The Extremes, "Just A Bad Thing" by Janice Christian, "Dining In Chinatown" by Jennifer Wells, "You Got What You Want" by The Angels, "Would You Believe" by William Hunt, "Sea Shells" by The Charmells, "She Could Love Me" by The Athens Rogues, and "Jerk Baby Jerk" by Carl Burnett & The Hustlers.

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.

✨✧ VariousRare Collectable & Soulful Vol 2 – Northern Soul's Holy Grail ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1997. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue look at the rich soul legacy of RCA Records in the 60s – a label that may well be known for its big pop hits, or its achievements in Nashville – but also a surprising powerhouse of of upbeat, uptempo soul when it came to their singles! For some special reason, RCA really seemed to allow a hell of a lot of creative freedom in the soul department – unlike their country, which was often very strictly controlled in terms of production – and the result is a huge amount of extremely creative, extremely groovy, and pretty damn soulful tracks that come together beautifully on this set! Many singles were pressed in small numbers, and hardly ever circulated or promoted at the time – which means that the whole thing definitely lives up to the "rare collectable" in the title – and the set also features some tracks that appear here for the first time ever! Titles on this second volume include "Dance Little Girl" by The Cavaliers, "Love Is So Wonderful" by Dean Courtney, "Movin' Too Slow" by The Exciters, "You Only Live Twice" by Lorraine Chandler, "My Imagination" by The Metros, "Can't Let You Go" by The Geminis, "American Dollar" by Willie Kendrick, and lots lots more.

Renata AdlerAfter The Tall Timber – Collected Nonfiction (hardcover) ... Book
New York Review Of Books, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A fantastic collection of nonfiction work from Renata Adler – a writer we first discovered through her inventive fiction, but one who's got a much greater history as a journalist – including decades of work for the New Yorker and other publications! This huge book brings together some of Adler's best pieces – articles handled with the same key eye and ear as her fiction, especially for the voices of the subjects involved – presented with dialogue that's extremely compelling in many of the works. The book spans the space of decades – and includes Adler on subjects as diverse as prostitution in LA, G Gordon Liddy, Civil Rights in Mississippi, the Six Day War, the Starr Report, violence in film, Biafra, and dozens of others – often snapshots both in history and American cultural struggle, captured beautifully by Adler's prose. The book is 514 pages, hardcover. Book

Aged In HarmonyYou're A Melody (3 X 7" set – plus magazine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3x7 inch ... $32.99
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

Why Not (Japan), 1976. Used ... $19.99
A seminal 70s set from the legendary Air trio – and one of their only non-American dates from the early years! The album was originally a Japanese-only album, but it's easily one of the group's greatest of the decade – a sublime set that really has them working strongly in their AACM roots, yet also reaching for a new sound too – a beautiful balance between jazz generations, carried off perfectly by the trio of Henry Threadgill on reeds, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on drums! Tracks are long, and extremely inventive – and titles include "Through A Keyhole Darkly", "Air Raid", and "Midnight Sun". CD

Edwin Astley/Tony CrombieInternational Detective/Man From Interpol ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, but also sounding pretty darn great on the earlier program International Detective! The feel here is similar to some of Astley's better-known work – a more dramatic take on the crime jazz used on American TV in the late 50s – one that retains much of the instrumental elements of the sound, especially the well-placed use of saxes – but which also uses larger orchestrations to flesh out the music nicely, creating a stronger, more cinematic feel. The set features a total of 21 tracks from this short-lived show – and titles include "International Detective", "Murder Strip", "Theme For Larceny", "Night Patrol", "The Badge", "Manhunt", "Shock Tactics", "Murder Chase", and "Concerto In Law". Next is Man From Interpol – one of the best spy soundtracks we've ever heard – and one of the only scores we've ever seen from Brit jazz drummer Tony Crombie! The work was done a few years before Barry's famous Bond scores – but it's got a very similar feel, with lots of driving themes that make the best use of brazen horns, fast jazz, and beat-styled rhythms that crackle throughout the set. Most titles are pretty short, but really great – and nearly all of them feature some extremely strong jazz musicianship, in the manner of that used on the best American soundtracks by Mancini at the time! Titles include "Panic Station", "Interpol Cha Cha Cha", "Interpol Chase", "Samba De Janeiro", and "Blues Macabre". CD

✨✧ Atlantic StarrBrilliance ... LP
A&M, 1982. Very Good- ... $1.99
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

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. New Copy ... $15.99
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

Count BasieLil Ol Groovemaker Basie! ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Count Basie and Quincy Jones were always a mighty mighty combination – and there's no finer proof of that fact than this sweet little set! Quincy had a way of swinging Basie's group even more than Neal Hefti did – really letting the piano step out front, and swinging the larger horn parts in this mode that was extremely soulful, yet never with the hoke that could sometimes mar a Basie set – a style that was very 60s groovy, and which really helped breathe new life into the Count's ensemble! The album's a killer all the way through – and the tunes are all originals – written by Quincy, and arranged especially for the set – great little numbers that include "Nasty Magus", "Dum Dum", "Boody Rumble", "Count Em", "Belly Roll", and "Lil Ol Groovemaker Basie"!

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

Capitol, 1960. Very Good- ... $11.99
A real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels. Titles include "Aqueducts", "Gardens Of The Moon", "Pyramid Of The Sun", "Temple Of Gold", and "Procession Of The Princes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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".

Little Big Beat/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 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

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". CD also features the bonus track "I'll Let You Know". CD

✨✧ Bill BlackDown In The Depths (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Cellar Door/SSJ (Japan), 1950. New Copy ... $24.99
An amazing session recorded by Bill Black – a singer known best for his work with Gene Krupa in the 40s, but whose life took a sad turn in the 50s, and was barely heard from again! This album's a really unique session recorded by Bill in the early 50s – one that features very spare accompaniment that's mostly guitar and bass – and these wonderfully fragile vocals by Black that easily place him in the Chet Baker camp. The tunes are all extremely well-chosen – numbers that have the right lack of bravado to fit Bill's sad-tinged vocals – and the arrangements are surprisingly fresh too, way more than just simple renditions of the tunes. There's a brilliance here that we'd almost match with Sinatra's Wee Small Hours album – but which also has the gentle easygoing feel of some of the work of Matt Dennis. Titles include "Listen Little Boy", "Nobody's Heart", "Spring Is Here", "Down In The Depths On The 90th Floor", and "Where Are You". CD

Atlantic/Collectables, 1972. Used 2CD ... $10.99
This session shouldn't work, but it does – and beautifully! By all means, an album that includes Diz, Art Blakey, Monk, and Sonny Stitt playing together should be a first-rate snoozer, with hackneyed performances of common-denominator material that they can all get their hooks around – but instead, it's an amazing bit of work that has all players hitting some of their best moments of the 70's! Diz has that great deep 70's funk sound in his trumpet, Stitt's solos are razor sharp, and Blakey's drums have a good snap to them, and were recorded extremely well, despite the fact that this was a live session. All tracks are long, and the record includes great versions of "Tin Tin Deo", "Night In Tunisia", "Allen's Alley", "Blue Monk", "Woody N You", and "Tour De Force". CD
