Philippe PetitFor All The Life You Are In My Heart ... LP
Musica (France), 1977. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Great work from French guitarist Philippe Petit, a player who's clearly aware here of all the new modes of guitar jazz coming out of the American and European scenes of the 70s, but one who also knows how to step back into classic tones at the right moments! The session's a quartet outing – with Michel Grallier on piano, Dominique Lemerle on bass, and Aldo Romano on drums – and although the lineup and date might make you expect a freer session, most tunes here have a relatively tight song structure – ringing out with some beautiful single-note lines from Philippe, in a way that's filled with dark colors and rich tones. Titles include "Tailor Made", "Bolero Loco", "Avenue", "Christmas Song 77 Ecoute", and "I Remember FF". LP, Vinyl record album

Aesop Quartet (Ernest Dawkins, Hamid Drake, et al)Fables For A New Millenium ... CD
8th Harmonic Breakdown, 1999. Used ... $14.99
A beautiful session of spiritual avant garde jazz from Chicago! The Aesop Quaret features old and new players from the Chicago underground – including AACM reed player Ernest Dawkins, Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker, mystical percussionist Hamid Drake, and electric bassist Rollo Radford. Plus, the album also features some surprising guest appearances – like turntablism by Rob Swift on one track, and vocals by Reggie Gibson on two others. The whole thing's really fantastic – and has a sound that mixes older 70s soul jazz lyricism with some of the incredible crossover of ideas and cultures occurring in Chicago's current underground. Titles include "Tobias & Me", "Summer Solstice", "Egyptian Knights", "Jamila's Song", and "Cuttin N Scratchin". Very cool stuff – and it's even packaged nicely! CD

African Music MachineBlack Water Gold ... LP
Soul Power, 1972/1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible work from the obscure African Music Machine – a southern funk combo led by bassist Louis Villery – a legendary batch of funky singles, finally brought together as a full album! The band has a very unique sound that involves a lot of rolling bubbling basslines, spacey organ grooves, tight choppy guitar riffs, and punchy horn blasts – almost with the African elements promised in the title, but served up with a deeper funk sound all the way through! In a way, the group's a bit like Cymande or some of the other 70s hybrid ensembles – yet they've got a lot less dub, a much more direct funky groove, and plety of raw southern elements in the mix as well! This is the funky 45 material we first cut our teeth on back in the day – and the original singles are legendary! Includes massive cuts like "Black Water Gold (Pearl)", "A Girl In France", "Never Name A Baby (Before It's Born), "Making Nassau Fruit Drink", "Camel Time", "The Dapp", "Tropical", and "Mr. Brown".

Agitation FreeMalesch ... CD
Spalax (Switzerland), 1972. Used ... $11.99
A sublime debut from German prog outfit Agitation Free – a set that's definitely free of agitation, and one that spins out in these long, winding lines with lots of Eastern influences! There's a bit of drone to some of the grooves, but never in a sleepy or sloppy sort of way – and in addition to familiar prog instrumentation on guitar, keyboards, and percussion, there's also some added ethnic elements as well, and even a bit of steel guitar, zither, and live tape work too! Tracks are longish and nicely organic, and although there's some vocals on the record the whole thing's much more of an exploratory instrumental affair – very much like some of the best early work on Brain. Titles include "You Play For Us Today", "Sahara City", "Ala Tul", "Pulse", "Malesch", and "Rucksturz". CD

Ahora MazdaAhora Mazda ... CD
Pseudonym (Holland), 1970. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99
An amazing record from the Dutch psych underground of the dawn of the 70s – in a nicely expanded 2CD set – with the original album and bonus tracks on one disc, plus their 1969 demo-recordings and unedited live-in-the-studio performances from the album-sessions on CD2! The band has a very spacy and spacious vibe, with mostly longer tunes that blend nascent proggy guitar rock with cosmic lyricism, jazzy flute and psych funk percussion – very cool stuff! Album tracks include "Spacy Tracy", "Timeless Dream", "Oranje Vrijstaat", "Fallen Tree", "Power" and "Fantasio" – and the wealth of bonus tracks include "Try To Forget 1", "Vybra Stroll", "Exotica", "Nosy Noise", "Pushy" and many more!

Olli AhvenlahtiPoet ... LP
Love/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Olli Ahvenlahti's a poet on the keys – one of the most soulful players in the 70s Finland scene, heard here on one of his greatest albums ever! The record's got a glowing grace that's really wonderful – part CTI-inspired electric fusion, without as much jamming as other European work of the time – but also an album of rounder, warmer tones – recorded with a slightly larger lineup that includes Eero Koivistoinen on tenor sax, and lots of great percussion at the bottom! Tunes have a subdued approach to funky jazz – still tight in the rhythms, but with more of a focus on the nicely shaded horn solos, and on Olli's great use of electric piano and organ throughout. Titles include the classic jazz dance track "Grandma's Rocking Chair" – plus "The Poet", "Sunday's Stuff", "Aura", "Sambatown", and "A Day At The Zoo". LP, Vinyl record album

Air10,000 Hz Legend (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
A great early 00s effort from Air – bravely moving towards a deeper, trippier sound! For 10,000 Hz Legend, they wisely don't try to replicate the comparably effervescent vibe of their late 90s classic Moon Safari. On some level, they're still working with some of moodier textures of their work on the Virgin Suicides soundtrack, particularly in the warm, but slightly eerie melodies, but there's a much more expansive vibe here. They're still recognizable as sensual, electronics embracing avant pop composers of Moon Safari, but there's a lot more deftly layered influences here, from prog, to psych, to disco – and it's a great beginning-to-end listen. Includes "Electronic Performers", "How Does It Make You Feel", "Radio #1", "The Vagabond", "Radian", "Sex Born Poison", "People In The City", "Don't Be Light", "Caramel Prisoner" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

AirVirgin Suicides (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2000. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A great album from French combo Air – ingeniously working on dual fronts – as both the moody original score to Sofia Coppola's film adaptation of The Virgin Suicides, and as an amazing stand alone listening experience! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their usual atmospherics are dusted off with fairly jazzy instrumentation and post-Bacharach arrangements. Gordon Tracks sings guest vocals on "Playground Love" and the whole thing's got a beautiful airy 60s pop style to it – tracks include "Clouds Up", "Bathroom Girl", "Cemetary Party", "Dirty Trip", "Highschool Lover (Theme From The Virgin Suicides)", "Afternoon Sister", "Ghost Song", and "Dead Bodies".

AirtoEssential Airto – Featuring Flora Purim & Special Friends ... LP
Buddah, Early 70s/1976. Very Good+ 2LP ... $13.99
Killer reissue that combines both of the albums that Airto recorded for Buddah in the early 70s! The records were done with the help of Flora Purim and Hermeto Pascoal, plus Sivuca and Dom Um Romao – and they both boast perfect production, and just the right mix of Brazilian instrumentation and fusiony sounds. If you've ever heard one of Airto's weaker albums and wondered what the fuss was about, get this set and see how great he can be – because the record's got soaring jazzy Brazilian cuts that rank with the best stuff we stock! With the tracks "Andei", "Bebe", "Mixing", "The Tunnel", "On Sonho", Papo Furado", and "O Galho da Rosiera". 16 cuts in all! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

AirtoFingers ... LP
CTI, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of California soul! Flora Purim joins in here on both vocals and percussion – and the rest of the group features Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards and harmonica, Jorgte Fattoruso on drums, and David Amaro on both electric and acoustic guitars – shifting nicely between both instruments in a way that further underscores the blended vibe of the record! Most of these tracks are Airto classics – like "Tombo in 7/4", "San Francisco River", "Romance Of Death", "Ringers", and "Wind Chant" – and the record has a very sweet CTI production style, but is still rough enough around the edges to keep things nice and real!

AirtoFree ... LP
CTI, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Airto's unique Brazilian fusion style meets the electric funky genius of CTI – and the result is a killer album of long tracks with a far-reaching jazzy groove! The album takes off a bit from Airto's work with Return To Forever – no surprise, since Chick Corea and Flora Purim are on the record – but the set's also got the choppy modal groove that you'd expect from work by other CTI artists like Hubert Laws, Joe Farrell, Ron Carter, and Stanley Clarke, all of whom are on the album. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". LP, Vinyl record album

AirtoLatino – Aqui Se Puede ... LP
Sobocode (Puerto Rico), 1984. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
An overlooked gem from Airto – recorded after his 70s years on bigger labels, but a set that almost tops all of them in the end! There's a wonderful mix going on here – a blend of rootsy and electric, and Latin and Brazilian – the former clearly from the placement of the record on New York's Montuno label – an imprint that did plenty of great sessions filled with Latin jazz! The shift makes for a fresh one for Airto – still plenty of room to show off his famous percussion impulses, yet in a slightly different way – often grooving in a Latin fusion mode that's a nice maturation from the CTI years. The set's filled with all-star players – including Jorge Dalto on electric piano, Raul De Souza on trombone, Joe Farrell on flute, Alphonso Johnson on bass, and Oscar Castro Neves on keyboards, guitar, and cavaquinho – and the lovely Flora's also on board to sing a bit on the set. Titles include the extended jammer "Tombo", plus "Aqui Se Pede", "Jump", "The Return", "Sin Salida", and "Anatelio". LP, Vinyl record album

Laurel AitkenHigh Priest Of Reggae (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pressure Drop/Pama (UK), 1970. Used ... $1.99
Another disc of pure West Indian ex-pat delights from the Pressure Drop imprint! Like the previous releases on te label, this set showcases Laurel Aitken, reissuing his excellent 1970 effort for the Pama label, and then loading the set down with a mountain of equally great bonus material! The original issue of High Priest Of Reggae caught Aitken transitioning from the Rocksteady scene he dominated so well to the newer reggae vibe of the era, and as the title indicates, taking command of the new sound quite well! The original version of this album was a collection of great singles issued on the Nu Beat and Pama labels, and the bonus material here continues in that vein, for a total of 26 dynamite numbers! Titles include "Jesse James", "Mr Popcorn", "I Got To Have Your Love", "Shoo Be Shoo Be", "Save The Last Dance", "Reggae 69", "Donkey Man", "Blues Dance", "Lawd Doctor", "Everybody Sufferin'", "Pussy Price (Gone Up)", "Gimme Back Me Dollar", "Skinhead Train", 'Skinhead Invasion (aka Apollo 12)", and "Bendwood Dick".

AkaCrazy Joe ... CD
Granadilla (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Aka are really opening up their bag here – starting off with the wonderful funky title cut "Crazy Joe", which has a rock-solid James Brown inspiration right from the start – then moving off into a range of different styles that really show them deepening their sound! The group were legendary in their Indonesian homeland – famous for tripped-out performances and some really heady sounds – and we can really see that legend live up to itself here – on an album that filters together so many hip modes, and almost feels like some of the coolest South American rock of the early 70s – which groups from that scene were making equally unique inroads! Some of the mellower tracks have this cool way of flanging out the vocals next to organ or keyboards – and the harder moments almost show a heavier style than the group's first two records. Titles include "Crazy Joe", plus "Maafkanlah", "Skip Away", "Bidadari", "Raja Jalan", "Kenangan Beku", and "Batu Nisan". CD

Edip AkbayramEdip Akbayram ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. Used ... $9.99
A seminal debut set from Edip Akbanyram – a 70s Turkish singer whose music is every bit as compelling as arabesk rock by Baris Manco or Erkin Koray! Like both of those artists, Edip mixes older Anatolian roots with a freakier, fuzzier style from the psych generation – mixing electric guitar with offbeat Eastern phrasing, rootsy percussion, and very hip production that gives the whole record a sound that's as bold as it is brooding! Like Koray at his best, the music often has a bit of a groove – not entirely funky, but with these strong undercurrents that really move us – despite the barrier of language. Titles include "Bosu Bosuna", "Dumanu Dumanu Oy Bizim Eller", "Kukredi Cimenler", "Seve Beni Beni", "Deniz Ustu Kopurur", "Yakar Inceden Inceden", and "Daglar Dagladi Beni". CD

David AkeLake Effect ... CD
Posi tone, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
The lake effect here is a powerful one – a way of building up songs in these blocks of sound that relies heavily on the piano of David Ake, but also draws a lot from the well-crafted saxophone lines of Peter Epstein! Ake's approach is somewhat in the more contemporary school of jazz piano – that way of moving boldly with very carefully-chosen chords – but his work also has a darkness that's very unique, and a balanced sense of pacing that really makes the work of Epstein even more powerful than it might be in a more freewheeling setting. The group's completed by equally-thoughtful work on bass by Sam Minaie and drums by Mark Ferber – and titles include "Lone Pine", "The Cubs", "Tricycle", "Two Stones", "Silver Thaw", and "Palhaco".

Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
A late 70s live set from space jazz/jazz rock guitar guru Jan Akkerman – rolling from spacious, sparely haunting atmospherics to tighter, sax and keys punctuated fusion jams! This live set was his Atlantic followed up his self titled album, and it grooves in similar territory – not as reliant on the more rocking side of his sound, but hardly lacking in spacey dynamics – with more of a fusiony jazz funk vibe in the busier arrangements. Players include Jasper Van't Hoff and Willem Ennes on keys, Cess Van Der Laarse on bass, Tom Barlage on sax, Bruno Castelucci on drums, and Neppie Noya on percussion. Titles include "Transitory", "Skydancer", "Pavane", "Crackers", "Tommy" and "Azimuth". CD

Joe Albany with Warne MarshRight Combination ... LP
Riverside, 1957. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A teaming of two modern jazz talents from differing generations – one, pianist Joe Albany, rediscovered and re-recorded here after a number of years of obscurity during the 50s – the other, Warne Marsh, an emerging genius with one of the best tenor tones of his generation. The pair play together in an unusually spare setting – with no drums, and only bass work by Bob Whitlock for extra accompaniment. A real standout in the Riverside catalog – and recorded in LA, which makes one more distinction from the label's mostly New York output. Titles include "Daahoud", "Body & Soul", "I Love You", and "It's You Or No One" – and the record's a great one to hear Marsh in an unbridled setting. LP, Vinyl record album
