✨✧ Kaoru AbeSolo Live At Gaya Vol 4 ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
A series of amazing recordings from one of Japan's most important avant jazz musicians of the 70s – reedman Kaoru Abe, who was able to go head to head with some of the most inventive, creative free jazz artists of the European scene – but all with a style that's uniquely his own! In a Japanese scene that was later dominated by waves of sound and bombastic energy, Abe has a very marked sense of space – a love of the room between the notes, the time between the moments of sound – which always mark his solo work as extremely thoughtful, and give it an organic quality that we'd put right up there with only a rare few – like Evan Parker or Steve Lacy at their best. And while other Abe records are really wonderful, there's a very special quality to this series – which features unfettered solo material that just keeps on being amazing – no sense of repetition or overdone-ness at all. This 4th volume features two alto sax improvisations and one sopranino improvisation – all recorded on April 29, 1978. CD

AntibalasAntibalas (with bonus download) ... LP
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoNice Guys ... LP
ECM, 1979. Very Good ... $6.99
A key later session from the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – a record that gained them global exposure through the ECM label, and which has them working in a beautifully subtle sense of sound, space, and tone! The work is less all-out challenging than some of the group's earliest recordings – but no less strong, as if anything, the AEC has mastered their musical vision so well, they're coming across here with an extremely cohesive sound. Instrumentation includes a wide range of percussion, plus the usual bass of Malachi Favors and the saxes of Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell – and tracks include "Ja", "Folkus 11", "597-59", and "Dreaming Of The Master". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic StarrBrilliance ... CD
A&M/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $8.99
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". CD

Kevin AyersShooting At The Moon ... CD
Harvest/Water, 1970. Used ... $21.99
A wonderful little record – one that's filled with subtle charms and surprising moments of beauty – played by an intimate group of musicians who include Lol Coxhill, David Bedford, and Mike Oldfield! In a way, the record's a bit of a precursor for some of the experiments to come from Coxhill and Bedford – because the set blends together bits of rock, jazz, and other musics – all with a careful sense of production that filters the best elements together nicely, the focuses them into some extremely compelling tunes. Ayers sings on most numbers, but the instrumental side of the album almost gets greater focus – and titles include "May I", "Pisser Dans Un Violon", "The Oyster & The Flying Fish", "Shooting At The Moon", "Red Green & You Blue", "Underwater", and "Lunatics Lament".

Roy AyersFever ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely catchy groover that's very much in the mode of "Running Away", with plenty of choppy funky riffs, and a good soul base at the core. Even better, though, is the mellow spacey side of Roy – which shows up wonderfully in the cuts "Is It Too Late To Try" and "If You Love Me" – two overlooked gems that float along in a perfect blend of jazz and modern soul, with great breathy vocals and vibes, very much in the spirit of stuff on the You Send Me album. Other cuts include "I Wanna Feel It", "Leo", "Take Me Out To The Ball Game", and "Simple & Sweet" – all nice too! CD

Roy AyersSearching For Sunshine 1973 to 1980 (You Send Me/Fever/No Stranger To Love/bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Raven (Australia), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 25.98
A trio of Roy Ayers classics in one sweet set – along with some excellent bonus cuts too! First up is the album You Send Me – a set with a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record – bringing out elements like the vibes, electric piano, and soulful vocals – and turning them into a seductive blend that trails out over the course of the record, hitting a smooth mellow mode that we love every bit as much as Roy's harder and funkier work. The title cut is an amazing extended remake of "You Send Me", which sounds nothing like the original – and other good cuts include the stepping "And Don't You Say No", and the great cuts "Rhythm" and "Everytime I See You", which have these excellent offbeat rhythm patterns. Fever is a great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely catchy groover that's very much in the mode of "Running Away", with plenty of choppy funky riffs, and a good soul base at the core. Even better, though, is the mellow spacey side of Roy – which shows up wonderfully in the cuts "Is It Too Late To Try" and "If You Love Me" – two overlooked gems that float along in a perfect blend of jazz and modern soul, with great breathy vocals and vibes, very much in the spirit of stuff on the You Send Me album. Other cuts include "I Wanna Feel It", "Leo", "Take Me Out To The Ball Game", and "Simple & Sweet" – all nice too! No Stranger To Love is a sly, and often funky set that deserves to be mentioned with his more famous dancefloor ready work of the late 70s – and if it gets an extra point two for the incredibly cool cover photo, the slow burning grooves more than deliver on the promise! The album does a really nice job of rolling out both the sultry jazzy soul and the funkier Ayers modes, with sweet strings in spots, Roy's incomparable vibes, bass and keyboard grooving, and vocals that set the mood for both the slow jams and the funky stuff! Includes the extended mellow number "Don't Let Our Love Slip Away", one of Roy's better downtempo moments, plus great stuff like "Don't Stop The Feeling", plus "What You Won't Do For Love", "No Stranger To Love/Want You", "Shack Up, Pack Up, It's Up (When I'm Gone)", "Don't Hide Your Love". CD also features 8 more bonus cuts – including "Love From The Sun", "Running Away", "Keep On Walking", "Vibrations", "Searching", "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", "Love Fantasy", and "No Deposit No Return".

✨✧ Count BasieLil Ol Groovemaker Basie! ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good ... $2.99
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"!

Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $3.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Harem Silks From Bombay", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon". The Sacred Idol is 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". CD

Walter Bishop Jr.Cubicle ... LP
Muse, 1978. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A gem of a set from Walter Bishop Jr – an extremely soulful little session that stands nicely next to his famous dates for the Black Jazz label! The vibe here is a bit more open than those records, but no less righteous – and Bishop's on keyboards in a great group with Rene McLean on soprano and tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Pepper Adams on baritone, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Joe Caro on guitar, Billy Hart on drums, Bob Cranshaw on Fender bass, and Ray Mantilla on trumpet. A young Carmen Lundy makes a wonderful appearance on the track "Valley Land" – and other titles include "Those Who Chant", "Cubicle", "Summertime", and "Now That You've Left Me".

Paul BleyImprovise (limited numbered edition) ... CD
America/Verve, 1972. Used ... $34.99
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! CD

Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $9.99
Hard soulful Latin from the great Willie Bobo! The record's an extremely tasty blend of cuts that mix hard Latin grooving with a swinging 60s pop feel – all filtered through the crossover genius of late 60s Verve. There's lots of great boogaloo groovers, shing-a-ling rhythms, and a tight no-nonsense approach to percussion – classic all the way! Titles include "Shing-a-Ling Baby", "Felicidad","Mating Call", "Roots", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy","La Descarga Del Bobo", "Juicy", "Roots", and "Music To Watch Girls By". CD includes 4 bonus alternate takes of album tracks, including of the title cut, "Music To Watch Girls By", "Dis-Advantages" and "Shing-A-Ling Baby". CD

Booker T & PriscillaHome Grown ... LP
A&M, 1972. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Much mellower than the previous duet effort from Booker T & Priscilla Jones – a set that almost echoes Book's Memphis roots, but in ways that are different than the familiar soul of Stax! There's lots of sweet organ lines in the instrumentation – but they're played with a style that's often a bit rougher, almost more gospel-influenced than we're used to hearing from Booker – a beautiful mix for the spare vocal approach used on most of the record – a definite "home grown" sound that has Book and Priscilla singing in an intimate way that's really great. If you've ever doubted Booker's departure from The MGs, this record's well worth checking out – as he's definitely moved into a hip new space of his own – one that has some extremely haunting qualities at times. Titles include "Color Your Mama", "Save Us From Ourselves", "Maggies Farm", "Muddy Road", "The Sequence", and "Born Under a Bad Sign". LP, Vinyl record album
