✨✧ VariousW2NG – 89.9 FM ... LP
Numero, 1970s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The Numero Group turn their radio to yet another spot on the dial – this time around posing as a 70s AOR station, but working with their usual flair for rare and unreleased tunes! Given that the musical style is one that you're used to associating with big hits, it's great to hear music like this coming from deeper in the American underground – served up by artists who weren't trying to stand apart from the pack – just try to create their own top-shelf music in a relatively overlooked environment. Titles include "What A Way To Go" by Nanette, "Quick N Slick" by Orphans Of Love, "Wrap Myself Up In Your Arms" by Marshall Titus, "No Other Life Without You" by Greenflow, "Child Of December" by Larry Sanders, "You've Got A Woman" by Lion, "Take This To Heart" by Kettner & Shawe, "Waste Of Time" by Gary Hyde, and "You & Me Me & You" by Phillips.

✨✧ Eric DolphyConversations (aka Music Matador) (FM pressing) ... LP
FM, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Eric Dolphy – a record that's come out on a number of different labels, under a number of different names – but which is one of his most perfectly-realized sessions of the 60s, and one of his most spiritual albums ever! The record features a shifting lineup of players – almost presaging the ensemble modes that would rise more strongly in the post-Coltrane years – and Dolphy's chosen a strong group of associates, including Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Woody Shaw on trumpet, Clifford Jordan on soprano sax, Prince Lasha on flute, and Sonny Simmons on alto and bass clarinet. Dolphy plays flute, alto, and bass clarinet – and titles include "Love Me", a solo alto tune by Dolphy; "Alone Together", a duet with Davis' bass; a seminal take on "Jitterbug Waltz", completely reinventing the tune for new generations; and the massive "Music Matador".

MedusaFirst Step Beyond ... LP
Numero, 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the darkest records to ever come out of the Chicago scene of the 70s – an unreleased gem from Medusa – a group who really know how to go head to head with some of the most frenetic acts of their generation! The set's got a blistering array of guitars right up front in the mix – brilliant solos that are very much in the metal mode, yet without all the posturing that usually comes along with such dexterity – a style that's often more content to hide behind the larger, darker trappings of the entire group! There's plenty of cuts on the set that would have set late night FM radio on fire at the time – plus a few more than would definitely have been too dangerous for the airwaves too – and Numero's done a wonderful job of resurrecting this lost nugget – giving it a lavish velvet-covered jacket, with the kind of presentation that no big record labels would have paid for at the time! Titles include "Strangulation", "Temptress", "Feelings Of Indifference", "Black Wizard", "Frustration's Fool", and "Unknown Fear". LP, Vinyl record album
(In a very cool velvet cover!)

PharrellIn My Mind (Clean Edited Promo) ... LP
Star Trak/Universal, 2006. Near Mint- 2LP ... $11.99
Pharrell's first solo album. After the many months of anticipation between the release of the first single and the oft-delayed street date, we've had a ample time to wonder which Pharrell would take the lead – the electro-thumping, hip hop revisionist producer with the laidback rhymes, or the Curtis Mayfield-vocal loving, sex-obsessed pop crooner – and it turns out we get both in just about equal measure! It's no surprise to us, but we'll be far happier to hear these tracks popping on the FM than just about any summer jam radio cuts we can think of! Tracks include "Can I Have It Like That" feat Gwen Stefani, "How Does It Feel?", "Raspy S**t", "Best Friend", "You Can Do It Too", "Keep It Playa" feat Slim Thug, "That Girl" feat Snoop Dogg, "Angel", "Young Girl/I Really Like You" feat Jay Z, "Stay With Me" feat Pusha T, "Easy" feat Nelly, "Number One" feat Kanye West and more.

Sopwith CamelMiraculous Hump Returns From The Moon (marble smoke vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A really wonderful little record – by a group who should have been much bigger than they were! Despite the fact that these guys are an obscure rock band with a silly name, the record's a perfect example of the subtly soulful work that was coming out of various west coast sources during the 70s – the kind of album-oriented work that yielded gems for play on underground FM radio, but which has been mostly lost to the shifting sands of time, save for some well-placed rescue in the reissue scene. The gem on this one is the smooth stepper "Fazon", but the album's got a few other nice ones too, with a jazzy tinge that's almost in debt to Mose Allison or Ben Sidran – that kind of cool blend of many elements with younger ideas that was bubbling up on the Bay Area scene. Titles include "Dancin Wizard", "Monkeys On the Moon", "Sneaky Smith", and "Astronaut Food". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 750 – on marbled "smoke" vinyl!)

Starship 9Starship 9 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 2018. Used ... $4.99
A pretty cool contemporary group – one who are lucky enough to record for the legendary Cinevox soundtrack label, and who have a sound that definitely matches the vibe of that company's long legacy of music! The style here is very cinematic at times – with some slinky, groovy moments that feel like they're lifted right from 60s or 70s Italian film scores – but there's also a fair bit of vocals, too – lyrics that kind of slide in and out of the music in a nice way, again almost like a vocal tune on a cinematic outing – although a few even feel like some of our favorite British indie work of the early 80s.. Titles include "Cinema Roma", "Love Premiere", "Home Again", "Andromeda", "Berlin", "Stelvio FM", "Dedicato A Una Stella", and "Dust & Flowers". Also includes the bonus tracks "Stelvio (Quei Giorni Insieme)" and "Home Again (vocoder mix)". CD

SweetbottomTurn Me Loose ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
Guitar-heavy fusion from Sweetbottom – one of those late 70s groups that definitely brought a rock into play with their jazz! In fact, this album's got more vocals than the group's previous efforts – definitely heading for the kind of mature, FM radio mode of the time – cats schooled on more leftfield work in the early part of the decade, looking for some more adult ways to rock out as the years went on. Titles include "Turn Me Loose, "Endless Fantasy", "She'll Never Be Back", "One Night Stand", "Do Some Damage", and "Flight To Maricaibo". CD

✨✧ VariousBrunswick & Dakar 12 Inch Singles Collection Vol 3 ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from the later years of Brunswick Records – a time when the company briefly re-emerged as a surprising force on the hipper dancefloors of the time – thanks to a great run of funky club, soulful disco, and seminal boogie tracks! Brunswick didn't issue many albums at the time – and they were quite far from their hit years of the early 70s – but their 12" output from the period is wonderful, and way more than just the usual throwaway work for the discos – done with a real sense of quality, and a devotion to both funk and soul undercurrents that really keep things strong. Titles on this great 3rd volume include "Don't Say Goodnight" and "Love Me Today" by First Love, instrumental and vocal versions of "I Wanna Boogie With You" by Charlie Singleton & Stargasm, "Jammin Big Guitar" and "Rockin Big Guitar" by Vaughan Mason, vocal and instrumental versions of "Word Up" by Legacy, vocal and instrumental versions of "Gimme The Funk" by Charade, "Rock The House (parts 1 & 2)" by Elite, and the fantastic groover "You Are The One" by AM/FM.

FME (Ken Vandermark)Montage ... CD
Okka Disk, 2006. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 16.99
A double-disc set that documents the live efforts of the Free Music Ensemble – a power trio featuring Ken Vandermark on reeds, Nat McBride on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! The style here is very much in the legacy of Vandermark's trio work of years past, especially in association with Scandinavian players – a mix of searingly intense numbers and other more introspective ones – often performances that are focused strongly around sound textures. One CD here features a 2005 Boston show, and the other includes a concert the next day, recorded up in Montreal (some travel schedule there!). Titles include "Exit The Republic", "Drift", "But Only Almost", "False Rabbit", "On A Wire", "Looking At Dutch Stairs", "New Reference", "Ottica", and "Montage". CD

FME (Ken Vandermark)Underground ... CD
Okka Disk, 2004. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
A bold statement from the Free Music Ensemble – not a large group, but instead a searing power trio that features Ken Vandermark on reeds, Nate McBride on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums! The group work in a full-on mode that recalls the early power of the FMP scene, or some of the most striking work on ESP from the 60s – but given Vandermark's influence, they've also got a more open sensibility – clear in the shift from passage to passage of the album's numbered tracks, dedicated to influential heroes that include Peter Brotzmann, Paul Lytton, Joe Morris, and Joe McPhee – all contemporary heroes that are given great due here, but in a way that still has the trio retaining a very strong identity of their own.

Moe KoffmanMoe's Curried Soul ... LP
Kama Sutra, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A trippy trippy bit of funk from Moe Koffman – recorded after his big "Swinging Shepherd" instrumental hit of the early 60s – but a few years before his more experimental sessions of the 70s! The style here is mod hippie 60s flute jazz – with Moe blowing in a soul jazz mode that's clearly influenced by the sound of Herbie Mann's hits, but backed by a set of arrangements that have a much groovier feel – lots of hard bass, heavy drums, and fuzzed-up guitars – plus a nice electric undercurrent that gives the set a strong Head Jazz sort of feel. Extremely groovy throughout – and featuring the tracks "Curried Soul", "Sunshine Superman", "Cantelope Island", "Anteaters Song", and "Country Song". LP, Vinyl record album

A long improvisation with lots of angles and dark corners – served up in a way that really builds up tension, while also providing lots of compelling stops along the journey! The music is never too full-on, but always has a sense of complexity – strong interplay between the group right from the start, with Martin Blume on drums and percussion, Tobias Delius on tenor and clarinet, Achim Kaufmann on piano, and Dieter Manderscheid on bass. Things get a bit more tentative in the last third of the record – before the tension builds up again right at the end! LP, Vinyl record album

Willem Breuker/Han BenninkNew Acoustic Swing Duo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ICP/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.00
Mindblowing work from the Dutch jazz scene of the late 60s – duets between drummer Han Bennink and reedman Willem Breuker – delivered with an intensity that matches or beats anything the German, American, or British scenes had to offer! The sound is completely free, and often has an early FMP-like frenzy – with Breuker on soprano, alto, tenor, bass clarinet, and e-flat clarinet – and Bennink not just on drums, but also on a range of other percussion instruments, blocks, gongs, cymbals, sticks, and a heck of a lot of other implements too! Both musicians can evoke tuneful moments when they want, and move into fuller noise at others – shifting back and forth with the sensitivity we've always loved in Bennink's work, and displaying an energy we don't always hear on later records from Breuker. Titles include "Gamut", "Singing The Impalpable Blues", and "Music For John Tchicai". Amazing 2CD version – also features six more improvisations recorded at Jazzclub Podium in Essen Germany in 1968!

Peter Brotzmann14 Love Poems – Dedicated To Kenneth Patchen (180 gram pressing) ... LP
FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of the most beautiful albums ever recorded by saxophone genius Peter Brotzmann – and maybe his first album of ballad material too! As the title implies, the work is Brotzmann's answer to the poetry of Kenneth Patchen – and there's certainly a poetic quality to the way that Peter lays down his improvised performances – at a level that's subtle, sensitive, and which really seems to be opening up the way for a whole new generation of free jazz expression on the European scene – much as the Brotzmann recordings of the late 60s opened a path for the first! Every track features a different reed instrument – and apart from a reading of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman", all the other tracks are originals by Brotzmann – played on a tenor sax mouthpiece, tarogato, bass clarinet, alto, baritone, e flat clarinet, and tenor. LP, Vinyl record album

The session is a landmark meeting of 8 important talents on the European free scene of the 60s – Sven Johansson on drums, Peter Kowald on bass, Willem Breuker on tenor, Fred Van Hove on piano, Evan Parker on tenor, and Han Bennink on drums – all working in an incredibly powerful blend that has all the ferocity of a machine gun let loose! Features the classic "Machine Gun", "Responsible" and "Music For Han Bennink". CD

Peter Brotzmann/Fred Van Hove/Han BenninkBrotzmann/Van Hove/Bennink – 1971 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
JG/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99
Very rare, very obscure material from this important free jazz trio of the German scene in the 70s – a set that features one long performance originally issued on the JG label, despite the FMP-like image on the cover – plus two more tracks from the same year that appear here for the first time ever! "Just For Altena" offers up the power trio at their best – very freewheeling piano from Fred Van Hove, drums from Han Bennink, and tenor from Peter Brotzmann – with intensity that may well surpass the Machine Gun years, and an understanding of each players strengths that means that there's almost no tentative moments at all in the improvisation! "Filet Americain" and "ICP No 17" are from earlier in 1971 – and showcase a different, more sonic side of the trio – some tones that are at the farther end of hearing, which ruminate then blossom into bolder statements, but still often with a very abstracted approach to each instrument. Great stuff – and every bit as essential as any of the better-known Brotzman recordings of the time! CD

The cover's got the boldness of an FMP album from the 70s, and the music within follows that spirit – a bold live performance at Chicago's Empty Bottle, a frequent home to both musicians at the time – with Joe McPhee on trumpet, alto, and tenor – Peter Brotzmann on alto, tenor, clarinet, and tarogato – driven by tremendous work on bass from Kent Kessler and drums by Michael Zerang.

Genius early work from reedman Marion Brown – an album that was originally only issued overseas, where it was recorded – as part of that legacy that's always had Brown getting a lot more attention in Europe than back at home! Yet the record's a monster that stands equally with Marion's seminal sides for Impulse and ESP – and is maybe even bolder than both of them, as Brown blows alto in a loose trio – with Maarten Van Altena on bass and Han Bennink on drums – in a mode that definitely puts the "free" in free jazz – recorded before the start of both FMP and BYG! Yet there's also that sensitive, soulful quality that makes Brown so great – that element in the music that's always had recordings like these as key pointers forwards to the loft jazz years on the NYC scene – a brilliant blend of freedom and inner spirit – on titles that include "Sound Structure", "QBIC", "Porto Novo", and "Similar Limits".

Rudiger Carl IncKing Alcohol (New Version) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
FMP/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1972. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... $11.99
Maybe the greatest moment ever on record from Rudiger Carl – and not just because the album is "dedicated to all drinker friends"! Despite that embrace of alcohol, the record's got a very sobering power – as the group is a free jazz trio, working in the best bracing early FMP way – with Carl on tenor, Gunter Christmann on trombone, and Detlef Shoenenberg on drums – all turning their instruments inside out as they madly, freely, explosively work off the power of one another! Christmann is especially amazing – and this album might well be to his trombone what the late 60s FMP sides were to Brotzmann's tenor – although Detlef's drums are pretty amazing too – very different than any contemporaries or precursors, and worth the price of admission alone. Titles include "Thrombose", "King Alcohol", "AEIOU", and "Rush Hour/Something/Triotrip". Plus, this 2CD reissue adds in an astounding 70 more minutes of unreleased recordings from the same sessions!

Adam Cooper & Nile Southern (editors)Chicago 1968 – The Whole World Is Watching (hardcover) ... Book
Hat & Beard, 2018. New Copy ... $34.99 60.00
A beautiful expansion of a famous moment in creative journalism – the famous 1968 issue of Esquire magazine that featured William S Burroughs, Terry Southern, Allen Ginsberg, Jean Genet, and Abbie Hoffman at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago! The results of that tumultuous event have been well-documented – but the special selection of correspondents was very unique – and was also documented heavily by photographer Michael Cooper. Cooper's shots appeared in the large special issue of the magazine in 1968 – but this book expands way past those shots, with dozens more taken at the time – showing the conflict in the street, the literary figures in action, and everything else that was happening at the time. The book includes expanded writings by Southern, too – and has a great balance of text and image, with 130 pages that mix black and white photos with writings. Book

Although he sucked monumentally during the 70s, when he was blowing his head off with his group Passport, Klaus Doldinger was actually a damn good soul jazz tenorist during the 60s – and he cut some great groovy LPs that were issued in the US, like this one from 1963. The record features Doldinger with his classic quartet – featuring the great Infried Hoffman on organ, and Klaus Weiss on drums. The band has a really lively sound that feels a bit like American soul jazz, but which also carries a lot of the Saba/MPS groove – mostly because of a lighter rhythmic touch, which lets the band dance around a bit more on the sound of the tracks. Titles include "Song Of Delilah", "Signal", "Solar", and "Bluesy Toosy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small cutout hole and a hint of light wear.)

Six Degrees, 2000. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent bit of modern space funk – with lots of great keyboard work, layered over heavy beats and percussion twists that add a slight touch of Latin and Brazilian to the groove. Most tracks are in that heavily-processed Kruder & Dorfmeister mode – with occasional washes of strings, snippets of sampled vocals, sometimes jazzy instrumentation, and other sweet downtempo styles. Titles include "After", "Ocean Air", "Smile", "Spacewater", "Where Are We?", "Just You & I", "Colores", and "Slowhand Hussein". CD

EmbryoEmbryo's Rache (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Loneos Editions (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... About June 25, 2020 (delayed)
Early prog jazz genius from the mighty Embryo – and an album that perfectly fuses their love of world rhythms and electric jamming grooves! The percussion by Edgar Hofmann ranges from playful to hypnotic – with heavy drums and basslines crafting some incredible rhythms that spin out strongly – sometimes jamming, sometimes a bit looser – and often topped with great work on flute and this ultra-cool Leslie piano, which has a nice fuzzy sound. The album's got lots of other sweet organ and mellotron lines – and Hofmann also plays soprano sax and violin as well. Titles include "Tausendfussler", "Time", "Revenge", "Espagna Si Franco Finished", "Try To Be", and "Change". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Basil KirchinEveryday Madness ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $23.99
Rare work from the archives of Basil Kirchen – very appropriately titled, given the madness of the legendary UK composer! As Jonny Trunk explains in the notes, Kirchen left the music behind with little in the way of information – but that hardly detracts from the quality of the music, as each of the three selections on the record are a very compelling part of his legacy! "Pat's Pigs" begins the set – and is possibly some field recordings, which are then processed, with improvised music added in – all with the end result of maybe some of the more sonic/textural experiments on FMP in the latter half of the 70s. "Electronic" is clearly a pun of a title – as the core elements of the music are voices, including some of autistic children – recorded by Kirchen, then processed and augmented – with this surprising sense of beauty and depth that comes in the way they're organized and mixed with very subtle low-end horns – all with surprisingly musical results. Last up is "The Suspended Fourth" – a piece that is maybe more jazz or soundtrack overall – and maybe partly in the territory of the looser minimalists of the 70s! There's a bit of guitar, some nice reed work, and this really poetic quality to the music overall – especially when the use of vibes brings out some stunning chromatic elements in the recording.

PachecoLatin Piper ... CD
Fania, 1972. Used ... $36.99
Another departure for Pacheco – as he kicks off the 70s with a set of funky instrumental tunes! The tracks on this set are quite different from either his earlier charanga records, or his later salsa ones – and sparkle with the kind of "soul meets Latin instrumental" style of some of Mongo Santamaria's late 60s sides. But that's just a jumping off point, as there's lots of electricity in the mix – and a focus on funky flute work (hence the "piper" in the title!), with a style that borrows from players like Senor Soul, Moe Koffman, or some of the other 60s flute instrumental stylists. There's still plenty of Latin in the grooves, too – and the album swings easily from funky to groovy to soulful from track to track. Titles include "Green Peppers", "Raisins & Almonds", "Jou Jou's Theme", and "Lazy Flute". CD

Two legendary tenorists, coming together here in a record that's one of the most striking from both players at the time – a real return to the spare space of some of Joe McPhee's earliest albums, and some of the sharper edges that Evan Parker wasn't always giving us in the 90s! The setting is as basic as the title, but the sound is amazing – two giants, freely improvising in open space – making some amazing textures and tones together, but really shifting in mood from track to track – at a level that's completely spellbinding all the way through – a record that bristles with the kind of energy you'd expect from an older FMP session. An instant avant classic – with a total of 11 tracks in all! CD

A few years after the breakup of the Kruder & Dorfmeister team, Peter Kruder dropped his Peace Orchestra set on the world – raising the bar forever for excursions into downtempo beats and jazz. This set reworks Kruder's original album, and features work from a number of Europe's best jazz-based remixers and producers – expanding Kruder's original vision into a range of sounds and styles, lots of warm grooves flowering out of the skeleton of the previous LP! The overall approach is quite different and actually much more compelling than the original – and tracks include "The Man" remixed by Gotan Project, "Meister Petz" remixed by Beanfield, "Henry" remixed by Zero Db, "Domination" remixed by Raw Deal, "Double Drums" by DJ DSL, "Shining" by Truby Trio, "Who Am I" by Chateau Flight, and "Henry" by Soul Patrol.

A record that got huge circulation at a worldwide level – maybe making PFM one of the most-exposed groups of the legendary Italian scene in the early 70s – a wave of groups that took strong inspiration from the sounds of Yes, Genesis, and other UK acts – but really pushed the music with their own sense of creativity! The cuts on the album aren't just jamming rock – but really show a more expansive view, as long instrumental passages almost seem to draw from jazz or soundtrack complexity – with especially nice guitar, flute, violin, and keyboard lines – and vocals come in at just the right moments to send things home. Titles include "Mr 9 Til 5", "Old Rain", "Celebration", "River Of Life", and "Photos Of Ghosts". CD

FMP/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1975. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
A seminal album from Hans Reichel – a musician who might be to free jazz what John Fahey was to acoustic music – a player who can at once be immediately modern and completely timeless in his approach – working here in a way that opens up the instrument beyond any conventional expectations! Many of these tracks have an inherent cyclical pulse – a bit like the way that Fahey could mix Eastern elements with blues inspiration – but there's also a more chromatic approach to the instrument, and ways of playing that go beyond simple notes – so that each touch of a string is almost like a little explosion of color – explosions that work together to make some amazing sounds throughout! Titles include "Bonobo I", "Peter Zweifel", "Lurch", "Toeni", "Moor", "Nicht Sand Sondern Popel Im Getriebe", and "Mariahhilf". CD

Overlooked work by one of the true guitar geniuses of the 70s – an artist who should be right up there with Derek Bailey and Fred Frith – especially with groundbreaking work of this nature! Hans Reichel has a very unique approach to the electric – one that's both very deft on the strings, but also has a sonic sensibility that almost seems to use the instrument to trigger sounds as much as to create notes – moments that are often quite melodic, even when free – shifting between the infinite tonal possibilities of the guitar and some of its textural elements too. Some of Reichel's later work wasn't as great as his 70s output – but this album's a tremendous and well-lauded classic! Titles include "Lupi", "Shaved Guitar", "Krampfhandlugen", and "Alfons Al Piepenbrink & His Lonely Wah Wah Pedal". CD

Sweet! Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Huber turn in a nice, nice 2 disc set, with each disc representing one half of the group's personality. The first disc is a fine set of grooves in soft satin, spanning the spectrum from smoked out downtempo to nice crisp uptempo but never letting you get lost as they take you on a journey with loads of different flavors, modes and styles that are all still stamped with their signature smooth Vienna roasted sound. The second disc is about as chilled as you can get, atmospheric dub scapes built around spare piano parts, for when you turn the lights down real low. 22 tracks in all over the course of the 2 discs, including "Oscar", "Mago Di Bango", "Every Day & Every Night", "Rolf Royce", "La Vendeuse Des Chaussures Des Femmes", "D-moll Session 1", "Schwimmer Session 4", "Slow Hell Session 6" and "Fluss Session 9".

FMP/Cien Fuegos (Austria), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Amazing work from this seminal group on the FMP scene – a quartet led by pianist Alexander Von Schlippenbach, but equally balanced between the saxes of Evan Parker, bass of Peter Kowald, and percussion of Paul Lovens! We're not sure how much to take the "nails" in the title seriously, but it does sound as if Schlippenbach is playing prepared piano at times – or perhaps his command of the keyboard is just so strong, he can make other-worldly elements come from the instrument whenever he wants! Much of the music has a full-on FMP intensity – that non-stop, sonically adventurous quality inherited from Machine Gun – spun out over three great live improvisations, titled "Range", "Black Holes", and "Three Nails Left".

Fantastic sounds from the grittiest years of the 45rpm single – music that's so mad, so strange, it really defies description! All the cuts here are presented in conjunction with the long-running Fool's Paradise radio show on WFMU – a longtime champion of all things weird and wild – always reminding us that in the glory days of vinyl, there was so much stuff set to record that really defied any sort of description – sounds that usually were quite far from the charts as well! The music here maybe has bits of R&B, early rock, jazz, and exotica – but the end results are all pretty darn unique – and often handled with both a sense of humor, and a great ear for unusual studio tricks and gimmicks. Titles include "Chinese Rock & Roll" by the Flock Rocker, "Shawnee" by The Premiers, "Charlie & The Bank Job" by Al Katraz, "Umh Uh Baby" by Kind Sid, "Knock Her Down" by The Orbits, "The Last Meal" by Hurricane Harry, "500 Pound Canary" by Jules Blattner, "The Goatee's Got To Go" by Dick Summers, "Mad" by Bobby Borda Five, "Pulp Wood Charley" by Wee Willie & The Soulettes, and "Pal Mal Rock" by Arnie Ginsberg.

Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99
Incredible sounds from the German Jazz Festival of 1964 – a wonderful meeting of modern talents from all over the European continent at the time – including some great work from behind the Iron Curtain too! The album features a few tracks each by a number of different groups – all of them excellent, and the sorts of players who are really under-represented in terms of available recordings – which makes this selection of tracks completely essential! The set begins with "Sopranitis" and "Birmingham Post" – played by a very cool combo with Heinz Sauer on tenor and soprano sax, Joki Freund on the same two instruments, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, and Gunther Kornberg on alto and baritone – a four-sax group that works with just bass and drums to give them a groove, with strong solos from all players. Next up is the fantastic Zagreb Jazz Quartet – with Bosko Petrovic on vibes – playing "In Walked Bud" and "Degressia" – plus a version of "Bluesette" with a guest appearance by Sven Asmussen. Tenor player Karl Drevo (Drewo) leads a quintet with trumpeter Maffy Falay and pianist Bora Rokovic – on a long reading of "Save Your Love For Me". The legendary quartet of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger is next – his great group with Ingfried Hoffmann on Hammond, Peter Trunk on bass, and Klaus Weiss on drums – with guest work by Rolf Kuhn on tenor and Inge Brandenberg on vocals – on the titles "Waltz Of The Jive Cats", "What's The Matter Daddy", and "Groovin In Berlin". Last up is one of our favorite groups of the time – the quintet of pianist Michael Naura, which also features Wolfgang Schluter on vibes and Peter Reinke on alto – on "Rainy Clouds" and "Rhythm A Ning".

The Krauts are at it again – moving and grooving in a hip array of funk and mod styles from the 60s and 70s – most of which are even fuzzier and more upbeat than on previous volumes! The music here is heavy on Hammond, guitar, and romping drums – and a fair bit of tunes have English language too – sometimes sung with a slight German accent, which further enforces the charm of the songs! As before, the whole package is completely top-shelf – filled with obscure German gems we'd never have heard otherwise – and supported with full notes on the music, including track by track details on each tone. Given that there's 20 titles in all on the set, that's a heck of a lot of information – so you'll have plenty to read while listening to groovers that include "Glory Be" by Daisy Clan, "Fever" by Certain Lions & Tigers, "Drift" by Heinz Kiessling, "The Beat Goes On" by Inga, "La Avispa" by The Rainbow Orchestra, "Butterflies Never Cry" by Georgees, "Whole Lotta Love" by Dieter Zimmermann, "My Soul Is Black" by Gene Williams, "High" by Karl Schiller, "Stroke It" by Ingfried Hoffmann, "That's Me Boy" by Memphis Black, and "Hipguard" by Acid.

Fantastic work from two different years of this important German Jazz Festival – material that provides a great live complement to some of the best studio jazz recordings of the late 60s European scene – such as those coming from the MPS label, and some of the record companies in Paris and London! The vibe here is mostly straight, but there are plenty of currents of modern, and maybe just a bit of free – and the set's especially great in illustrating the sort of unique groupings and musical moments that can make the jazz festival scene so rewarding! Material from 1967 includes three long tracks by the group of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger with organist Ingfried Hoffmann; a long performance from a big band led by Kurt Edelhagen, with work from trumpeters Shake Keane and Jimmy Deuchar, tenorists Wilton Gaynair and Karl Drewo, and altoist Derek Humble; four tracks by a quartet led by trumpeter Dusko Goykovich, with Bent Jaedig on tenor; two long improvisations from a group that features Manfred Schoof on trumpet, Gerd Dudek on tenor, Alexander Von Schlippenbach on piano, and Jaki Liebezeit on drums; one track by a quartet with Ted Curson on trumpet and Nick Bridnola on soprano sax; four long cuts by the Clarke Boland Sextet, with Sahib Shihab on flute and baritone, Ake Persson on trombone, and Idrees Sulieman on trumpet; a sweet large group led by organist Ingfried Hoffmann, and a few other hip cuts too. 1968 features work by a sextet led by bassist Peter Trunk, with Shake Keane on flugelhorn, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Rob Pronk on piano; four tracks by the Clarke Boland Big Band, with Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone; two cuts by the twin tenor group of Hank Mobley and Johnny Griffin; a vocal performance by Jon Hendricks with a Clarke Boland group with Johnny Griffin in the lead; twin trombones from the Slide Hampton and Ake Persson Quintet; hip work from the trio of pianist George Gruntz, bassist Henri Texier, and drummer Daniel Humair; a number of tight tracks from the Maynard Ferguson big band, with Pete King on tenor; and two shorter trio tracks from Joachim Kuhn. Like other Be Music titles, the presentation is great – a really well-done box, and big booklet of notes and images. CD

A record that seemed to open the music of Peter Brotzmann up for a whole new generation of listeners – in part because it features the European legend on an American label that got him some of the widest circulation he'd enjoyed here in years – and also in part because drummer Hamid Drake provides a very different foil for his music! The sound is almost an imaginary 70s meeting between the FMP and loft jazz scenes – with Hamid offering up these beautifully rich tones on standard drums, frame drum, and tablas – while Brotzmann blows tenor, alto, tarogato, and e flat clarinet – often with a sound that's searing, but more soulful than usual too – especially on some of the more spacious, open moments on the record. Titles include "It's An Angel On The Door", "Trees Have Roots In The Earth", "The Uninvited Entertainer", and "Dark Wings Carry Off The Sky". CD

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonSunny Side Up (SACD pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note/Analogue Productions, 1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most perfectly crafted moments of Lou Donaldson's hardbop genius at Blue Note – and a beautiful example of the way that Lou could handle the alto sax with a sharpness that earned him a place in the post-Parker lineage – but also a sense of soul that was miles away from Bird! The setting here is a quintet – with Bill Hardman on trumpet, Horace Parlan on piano, Al Harewood on drums, and either Sam Jones or Laymon Jackson on bass – a great group who set up a warmly rolling groove that's perfect for Donaldson – tight, but never uptight, and with just the right sort of vibe to move along with Lou's sense of energy. Donaldson's horn is beautifully precise throughout, and the whole thing's recorded with impeccable Rudy Van Gelder clarity. Titles include "The Truth", "Good Grease", "Blues For JP", and "Politely" – plus three bonus tracks! CD

✨✧ Wes MontgomerySo Much Guitar! (gold CD pressing) ... CD
Riverside/DCC, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
So much guitar – but never too much, given that Wes was the real master of sound and space, even at this early point in his career! The album's one that tries to break Montgomery from some of his smaller combo albums for Riverside, and pair him with a few bigger names – Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, Lex Humphries on drums, and Ray Barretto on congas – who gives the album that bottom "kick" sort of groove that was used often on soul jazz sessions from the time. The tune's lope around leanly and cleanly, giving plenty of focus on Wes' work on guitar – and titles include "Twisted Blues", "Repetition", "Somethin' Like Bags", and "While We're Young", which is a solo track by Wes. CD

✨✧ Paul Rutherford/Derek Bailey/Barry GuyIskra 1903 – Chapter Two 1981 to 1983 (3CD set) ... CD
Emanem (UK), Early 80s. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing second chapter from this extremely inventive trio – a marvelous matching of the talents of Paul Rutherford on trombone, Barry Guy on bass, and Phil Wachsmann on violin! All three players use a fair bit of electronics, too – very much in the best FMP mode of mixing live acoustic improvisation with additional improvised electronics – creating this electro-acoustic mode that goes way past any staid academic form of the genre! Most tracks here are long live improvisations – brought together in a massive three CD set that really documents the uniqueness of the group – with tracks that include "Dieptaur", "Veprol", "Eiverl", "Stoleri", "Vendia", "Epis", "Panshanton", and "Phelgstar".

✨✧ ToscaSuzuki ... CD
G Stone (Germany), 2000. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spare tracks blending washes of sound and funky beats – in a mode that's similar to the classic G-Stoned ep by Kruder & Dorfmeister, which is no surprise, since Richard Dorfmeister's one half of Tosca! The tracks build nicely, in an effect that's one of our favorite in modern production – drawing on a history of soundtracks, soul production, and shimmering modern abstract vibes – moving way past the usual dancefloor-only grooves that kind of put us to sleep. A few vocals sneak in from time to time – but the future instrumentation's the best part of the trip! Titles include "Honey", "Boss On The Boat", "Annanas", "Doris Dub", "The Key", and "John Tomes".

✨✧ VariousJukebox In Crampsville – 60 Way Out Tunes At A Dime Apiece ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mad music that you might never have heard otherwise – the fantastic fifth installment in this excellent series inspired by The Cramps – and maybe the deepest-digging so far! There's no holds barred here – both in the source of the material, and the style – and the main criteria just seems to be finding tracks that are as way-out and wild as possible – almost all of which are pulled from the 45rpm underground of the late 50s and early 60s! The "jukebox" in the title is well-placed – as most of these cuts are mad rompers that would really liven up a nightclub – but we also can't imagine there ever being any jukebox as hip as this one, to bring all these fantastic singles together. Titles include "Icky Poo" by The Nomads, "Pimples & Braces" by Ric Gary, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Bop Crazy Baby" by Vern Pullens, "Boom Stix" by Curley & The Jades, "Cannibal Stew" by Jerry & Mel, "Talk About A Party" by Lee Braun, "Mad Gass" by The Royal Teens, "Mama's Place" by Bing Day, "Mo Taters" by The Earthworms, "I'm The Wolfman" by Round Robin, "A Logger's Wife" by Buzz Martin, and "Strollie Bun" by The Blonde Bomber.

✨✧ VariousSweetest Feeling – A Van McCoy Songbook 1962 to 1973 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet overview of the Van McCoy songbook from the early 60s to early 70s – and a stellar compilation from Ace Records – a label that's gone above and beyond in its efforts to shine a light on the songwriters and producers behind some of most moving songs of the era! The breadth ofMcCoy's talent is pretty amazing, all the more so given his huge disco era hit "The Hustle", a world away from the soaringly emotional soul songs he penned for top shelf singers like Betty Everett, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Nancy Wilson, Donny Hathaway, Erma Franklin, Jerry Butler and more – many of the best of which are compiled here! 24 tracks in all: "I Got The Sweetest Feeling" by Erma Franklin, "Getting Mighty Crowded" by Betty Everett, "Baby I'm Yours" by Barbara Lewis, "Sotp And Get A Hold Of Myself" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "So Soon" by Aretha Franklin, "Giving Up" by Donny Hathaway, "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone" by The Ad Libs, "I've Lost You" by Jackie Wilson and many more.

✨✧ Miles DavisMiles Davis All Star Sextet/Quintet (aka Miles Davis & Milt Jackson Quintet/Sextet) (gold CD pressing) ... CD
Prestige/DCC, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the nicest moments from Milt Jackson in the 50s – an open-ended blowing session cut with Miles Davis, in a mode that's even better than Jackson's work for Savoy at the time! The style is very much in the key Davis mode on Prestige – with Jackie McLean in the group on alto sax, Ray Bryant on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. But the presence of Jackson's vibes bring out some new tones and chromes from Miles' horn – in a way that's subtle, but magical – unfolding nicely over the course of the album's 4 extended tracks! Titles include "Dr Jackle", "Bitty Ditty", "Changes", and "Minor March". CD

✨✧ VariousDays of Summer - 24 Dreamy Vocals & Bossa Nova Pearls From The Brillant Music Library ... CD
Brigade Mondaine/Tug (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Breezy bossa, jazzy easy, and a wonderful collection of postwar work from the Brillant Music sound library! The vibe here is quite different than the funkier sound libraries that came out of the UK and France in the late 60s – as the Brilliant sound is classy and easy – sometimes mellow, sometimes slightly funky – and always plenty darn groovy! There's a brilliant sheen to all the tracks here that really lives up to the company's name – a level of production and performance that matches the best easy material from the MPS catalog of the time, presented with a glittering economic miracle groove. Remastered version of the original compilation differs from the Stereo Deluxe package that was out previously – and titles include "Cool Night" and "Straight Ahead" by Heinz Kiessling, "Alles Geht Im Kreis" and "Jeder Tag Ist Ein Neues Lied" by Greetje Kauffeld & Addy Flor, "Coconuts" by Willy Hoffmann, "Solitare" by Johnny Pearson, "Carry On Joe" by Colin Frechter, "Days Of Summer" by Addy Flor, "Amante" and "Hamburgers" by Pete Jacques, and "Change" by Richie Hillman.

✨✧ VariousSnowboy Presents New Vintage Vol 1 ... CD
BBE (UK), 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heavy funk, Northern Soul, and R&B – but all of a newer vintage, and pulled together by the legendary Snowboy – who's been updating grooves for years! The set features loads of Snowboy's contemporaries from the global deep funk scene – and includes some nice bits that you won't usually find on records like this, which really opens the sound – thanks to the connections that Snowboy has been making over the past few decades. The CD package includes a whopping 21 tracks – and titles include "One Day" by Kings Go Forth, "That Old Black Music" by Ray Gelato & Kai Hoffman, "Stop Whistlin Wolf" by Imelda May, "Find Me A Golden Street" by Rich Clifford & The Saddows, "Green Jeans" by The Rapiers, "Don't Make A Fool Out Of Me" by Kitty Daisy & Lewis, "Big Fat Trap" by Big Boy Bloater & The Limits, "From Now On" by Magnus Carlson, "That's a Pretty Good Love" by Laura B & The Moonlighters, and "Baby Take Me Back" by Darrel Higham & The Enforcers, CD

✨✧ BromSunstroke ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fierce sounds from a freewheeling trio – one that features Anton Ponomarev on alto, Dmitry Lapshin on electric bass, and Yaroslav Kurilo on drums – all working with a frenzy that never seems to let up at all! The use of electric bass is great – and really ties together the drums and alto, but all at a level that never sounds too gimmicky or rockish – maybe more like an older FMP mode giving a tighter focus! Titles include "Plunge Into An Ice Hole", "Tuna", "Sunstroke", "Mingus 30 C", "Hematoma", and "Urtica". LP, Vinyl record album
