✨✧ Plastic Ono BandLive Peace In Toronto ... CD
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Live Peace in Toronto from John & Yoko – not the sprawling art rock proto noise collective that would record a little later, but a small group featuring Eric Clapton on guitar, Klaus Voorman on bass and Alan White on drums – who surprised the audience at the Toronto Rock & Roll Revival festival! The album is most famous for the iconic "Give Peace A Chance" sing-a-long, but it includes some raucous covers, some then new Lennon originals, some wild Yoko vocals, and some and all around good natured vibes. Other titles include "Money", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Yer Blues", "Cold Turkey". Side two has the full on Yoko extreme art noise, with "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow)" and "John, John (Let's Hope For Peace)". CD

AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. Used ... $7.99
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

Chris AndersonMy Romance ... LP
Vee Jay/RVC (Japan), 1960. Near Mint- ... $38.99
A rare session from Chicago pianist Chris Anderson – a hell of a player on the ivories, but one who's been woefully under-recorded over the years! This gem was originally cut for Vee Jay in 1960, but not issued until many years later for this Japanese release – and we're extremely puzzled as to why the set never came out at the time, because it's excellent work throughout, at a level that should have made Anderson a real star! There's a depth and sensitivity here that recalls Ahmad Jamal at his early best – an approach to the keys that's fluid, but never flowery – and which has enough of a groove overall to keep the focus of the tunes at all times, yet also let Anderson take off in wonderful flights of improvisation. Backing is by Bill Lee on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and Taylor's work here is especially nice, often using mallets and softer touches to shade the tunes with a very gentle rhythm – an approach that's quite unusual for Art on record during this stretch. Titles are mostly all standards – save for Lee's "Monica" – but they're nicely transformed by Anderson with his magic on the keys. Titles include "Love Letters", "Soon", "So In Love", "I Could Write A Book", and "A Fellow Needs A Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese EMI pressing – very nice!)

AntibalasAntibalas (with bonus download) ... LP
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $13.99 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

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".

Bill BarronBill Barron Live At Cobi's ... CD
Steeplechase (Netherlands), 1988. Used ... $12.99
Some of the last recordings ever made by the late tenor great Bill Barron – and some of the best as well! The CD presents previously unheard live recordings from Cobi's nightclub – a late 80s New York club where Barron played often upon his return from the European scene in the years before his death – and an extremely comfortable setting that let Bill stretch out on long tenor solos, in a style that's quite different than a lot of his studio work for other labels. There's still a very modern feel to the work – especially in Barron's tone – but the tunes also have a solidly inventive solo approach, one that rivals that of classic live recordings by Dexter Gordon or Sonny Rollins. The group's a quartet with Fred Simmons on piano, Santi Debriano on bass, and Ben Riley on drums – and most tracks stretch out for quite some length, dominated by Barron's beautiful solos. Titles include Kenny Barron's "Row House" and "Voyage", and Bill's own "Until Further Notice", "This One's For Monk", and "Easy Does It". CD

Checker, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of Fontella's best singles from Chess – a smoking duet with Bobby McClure, and an extremely catchy number that never lets up for a minute! The tune's one of the best 60s soul duets we can think of – and has an amazing hook where the two of them sing "Good Thing" together with this weirdly offbeat ringing vocal! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gary BiasEast 101 ... LP
Nimbus, 1981. Sealed ... $69.99
A dream of a record from the LA spiritual underground of the 70s – and one of the only records we've ever seen from reedman Gary Bias! The date's got a soulful depth that makes it one of the most compelling albums on the legendary Nimbus label – a rhythmic pulse that's often modal, and a sense of spiritualism in the solos that often has Gary stretching out strongly on alto, soprano sax, or flute – yet always with an inherent focus, and strong sense of direction! Other players are equally great too – David Tillman on piano, Rickey Kelly on vibes, Roberto Miranda and John Heard on bass, and Fritz Wise on drums – and the tunes are wonderful original numbers that mark Bias as an extremely strong voice in jazz – one that should have gotten better exposure over the years. The album's got a great Strata East sort of vibe – and titles include "As Children Play", "East 101", "Asiki", "Arthur's Vamp", and "Dear Violet". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul BleyBallads ... CD
ECM (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $19.99
Early ECM work from Paul Bley – a great example of the way that label helped Bley find a new voice in his music during the 70s! Although issued in 1971, the session was actually recorded a few years before – in 1967 – and done with a very spare, very open approach to the piano – one that was still extremely fresh at the time, and which is handled better by Bley than by most, especially on a few of the more dramatic moments. All tracks here are trio tracks – with Barry Altschul on drums, and either Gary Peacock or Mark Levinson on bass – and the three long tracks on the album were all composed by Annette Peacock, and include "Ending", "Circles", and "So Hard It Hurts".

Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Martin BoettcherSonderdezernat K1 – Original Soundtrack Music From The German TV Series 1972 to 1982 ... CD
All Score Media (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Brilliant sounds from the very first note – and some of the grooviest music we've ever heard from German maestro Martin Boettcher! Martin's known for both soundtrack and sound library material – and here, he's turning out some wickedly great work for a 70s German TV show – in styles that are heavy on the cop/crime modes of the time, but which really seem to draw from the deeper wealth of feeling that Boettcher brought to his sound library work – lots of wonderfully simple elements that color each tune with its own particular feel – making for an extremely evocative batch of tracks that go way past the usual funky TV modes! Make no doubt, there's still plenty of funk in the mix – but given that the set features a whopping 31 tracks, most of them short – there's a great sense of variety on the collection too. Titles include "Taxi Funk", "Sonderezernat K1", "St Pauli Beat", "Rauschgiftbande", "Oelker Auf Abwegen", "Sunshine", "Todesmelodie", "Christine Im Sportwagen", and "Love Me". CD

Booker T & The MGsGreen Onions/Soul Dressing (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax/Edsel (UK), 1962/1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Two classic albums from these Stax Records legends – with bonus tracks too! First up is Green Onions – a legendary album of Memphis soul – and a full length set that helped redefine the sound of instrumental music in the 60s! The record's a monumental follow-up to Booker T & The MGs' huge hit single "Green Onions" – an extremely seductive organ-based instrumental that the band cooked up while just messing around in the studio – and it's filled with other organ-heavy grooves played by this tight Memphis quartet – a group who were just starting out at this point, but already had a sound that's unlike anyone else! The work of Booker T is especially nice – Hammond with a bit more punch than other combos of this nature – backed by some wicked guitar from Steve Cropper, bass from Lewis Steinberg, and drums from Al Jackson. The set features a nice mix of covers and original tunes – with titles that include "Green Onions", "I Got A Woman", "Twist & Shout", "Lonely Avenue", "Comin Home Baby", "Mo Onions", "Behave Yourself", and "Rinky Dink". Soul Dressing is a great little record from Booker T and group – often overlooked amidst the range between Green Onions and Melting Pot, but a very strong album of soulful Memphis instrumentals all the way through! Book's organ is bubbling hot, and the band's tight rhythm style works in a perfect laid-back mode to push the group way past the stock grooves of earlier albums – thanks to great work from the rest of the combo too. There's some mighty nice rhythm changes on this one, and a good range of non-pop tunes like "Night Owl Walk", "Chinese Checkers", "Soul Dressing", "Tic Tac Toe", "Outrage", "Home Grown", "Big Train", "Jelly Bread", and "Plum Nellie". Features 2 bonus tracks – "MG Party" and "Terrible Thing". CD

Arista, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
One of Braxton's best records for Arista, and a great quartet session that features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Dave Holland on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums. The playing is extremely tight, and Braxton and Wheeler trade very sharp solos, while Holland pulls these amazing lines out of his bass. The set includes a version of "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", plus a bunch of tracks with Braxton's nutty formulas for titles. LP, Vinyl record album

Dave BrubeckAnything Goes – The Dave Brubeck Quartet Plays Cole Porter ... CD
Columbia (Japan), Early 60s. Used ... $9.99
Dave and the quartet pay tribute to the songwriting genius of Cole Porter – working with familiar older tunes, but nicely unlocking them with a strong sense of Brubeck modernism! Things start out slow, but get extremely playful as the set goes on – with fresh timings and phrasings that move the chestnuts past their usual territory – and allow some great space for crisp alto solos by Paul Desmond, always a treat in any Brubeck set! Dave himself sounds slightly heavier in his left hand on the keys – hitting things with a harder tone than one might expect for a Cole Porter session, and again making for an unusual twist for the material. Titles include "Night & Day", "Anything Goes", "Love For Sale", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "All Through The Night", and "You're The Top". CD

Dave Brubeck & Jimmy RushingBrubeck & Rushing (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1960. Used ... $8.99
One of the coolest collaborations of Dave Brubeck's years at Columbia Records – and one of the greatest jazz sessions from vocalist Jimmy Rushing too! On paper, the modernist Brubeck and Kansas City roots singer Rushing would seem to be a very unlikely pair – but by this time in his career, Jimmy had gotten extremely inventive and was very open to new ideas – and manages to lend his amazing vocals to some sublime instrumental backdrops from the Brubeck quartet! Dave unlocks a whole host of bluesy tones for the session, and really matches Rushing's energy – and Paul Desmond's alto sounds somewhat unusual in that setting, but with a real appeal too – a very unusual sound for a record like this. Titles include "There'll Be Some Changes Made", "My Melancholy Baby", "Blues In The Dark", "I Never Knew", "Ain't Misbehavin", "Evenin", "All By Myself", "River Stay Way From My Door", "You Can Depend On Me", and "Am I Blue".

Ray Bryant TrioCon Alma ... CD
Columbia, 1960. Used ... $8.99
Pure genius from Ray Bryant – the kind of a record that few other players could ever hope to cut, and a fantastic demonstration of Ray's extremely soulful approach to the trio format! Bryant's working here with Bill Lee on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – in a triple-burning setting that has all players contributing equally to the groove – and often working strongly to create a great sense of counterpoint in the rhythms. Roker's drums are magically playful throughout – snapping and skipping along the top of the snare in a way that only furthers the rhythmic agenda of Bryant's piano. And Lee's bass has a laidback and mellow delight – one that rings out alongside the keys of the piano, and fleshes them out with some additional depth and color. The title track is a brilliant reading of "Con Alma", and the set also features Bryant's famous tune "Cubano Chant" – as well as the titles "Autumn Leaves", "Milestones", "Ill Wind", and "C Jam Blues".

Blue Note, 1975. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
An incredible record that was one of the highest points of Donald Byrd's career! The album's the third one he cut with producer/arranger Larry Mizell – and of all Byrd's work with Mizell, this one's the funkiest, the tightest, the most soulful, and the most perfectly realized vision of the smooth jazz funk sound that the team were aiming at. Every track is a winner – and the album glides along with a slippery sinewy groove, never pausing for a weak moment or a misplaced note, shimmering with pride in its own genius. Byrd's trumpet soars over the top, banking gracefully over waves of funky drums, spacey keyboards, and extremely well-placed vocals – all brought together perfectly by Mizell, with a tightly fused style that few people have ever been able to match in the studio since! Tracks include "Change (Makes You Want To Hustle)", "Dominoes", "Wind Parade", "Places & Spaces", and "Night Whistler". CD

✨✧ Cyrus ChestnutMillion Colors In Your Mind ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
The title's a great one, as pianist Cyrus Chestnut explodes with a flurry of colors right from the very first note – that wonderful sense of richness in tone that made Chestnut a musician to watch right from the start, but which was sometimes dimmed in his projects for larger labels at the height of his fame. Thankfully, Cyrus has gotten even more open and powerful in recent years – working in a wonderfully unfettered setting like this, with superb support from bassist David Williams and drummer Victor Lewis – both extremely creative musicians, but in a really understated way. The trio comes together in the right mix of rhythm and lyricism that you'd find in the best Cedar Walton trio dates – no surprise, given Williams' long work with Walton – and titles include "Brotherhood Of Man", "From A Tip", "Gloria's Step", "Hello", "A Time For Love", and "Yemenja".
