✨✧ Reparata & The DelronsBest Of Reparata & The Delrons ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest girl groups of the 60s – a fab trio who hailed from Brooklyn, and who worked in the best sweet styles of both soul and rock groups of the time! Reparata & The Delrons have a sound that's a real cut above the usual – a way of handling a tune that's free of some of the cliches of other groups from the period, but which also does a good job of bringing out their best elements too. It's hard to sum up just why the group's so great – but it's possibly because they were working at the end of the girl group era, and have a bit more of a depth to their work – a style that's also influenced a bit by harmony folk and Sunshine Pop, but which is stil unabashedly focused on shorter tunes with groovy hooks. The CD brings together 30 tracks by the group – including a few solo numbers by Reparata – including work from their album for World Artists, and singles recorded for Kapp, Mala, and RCA. Titles include "Boys & Girls", "Captain Of Your Ship", "The Kind Of Trouble That I Love", "Tommy", "I Have A Boyfriend", "I Can Tell", "I Found My Place", "Shoes", "He's My Guy", "Look In My Diary", "Panic", and "It's Waiting There For You".

✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Singers UnlimitedIn Tune ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1971. New Copy ... About November 15, 2017
One of the first albums cut by the fab Singers Unlimited – and the set that has them backed by the Oscar Peterson Trio! The Singers always mixed well with guest jazz talents – and the style of this albums gives their sweet harmonies a nice jazz-based groove and not too much cheese on the top – one of the leanest instrumental settings from their MPS era, and a nicely gliding groove that supports their voices wonderfully! The record includes great versions of "The Gentle Rain", "Once Upon A Summertime", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and Thad Jones' great "A Child Is Born" – as well as a pretty crazy rendition of "Sesame Street"!

Gianni Basso/Fabrizio Bosso QuintetSweet & Lovely ... CD
Philology (Italy), 2003. New Copy ... $18.99 21.98
A beautiful meeting between two generations of Italian jazz – and a set that's almost gone onto become a modern classic over the years! Older tenorist Gianni Basso is perfectly matched here with younger trumpet giant Fabrizio Bosso – in a sound that's sweet on the edges, and has a nice bite in the middle – well-recorded, with very compelling song choices – and superb backing from a trio that features Andrea Pozza on piano, Luciano Milanese on bass, and Stefano Bagnoli on drums! You can really hear the formative roots of the current Italian scene that's really taken off in the past decade or so – and Bosso is nicely restrained at times, but only in a way that seems respectful to the well-crafted tenor sound of Basso. Titles include "Fan Tan", "Zoot", "Jones' Beach", "Split Kick", "Sweet & Lovely", and "Lucius Lu". CD

Anthony BraxtonAnthony Braxton Quartet Ao Vivo Na Fabrica ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
A very cool record from reedman Anthony Braxton – one that's got a trio of horns coming into play with a guitar – all at a level that creates beautiful interplay between the sharp edges of the former, and ringing tones of the latter! The quartet features Braxton on alto, soprano, and sopranino – as well as a bit of electronics – alongside Taylor Ho Bynom on cornet, bass trumpet, and flugelhorn; Ingrid Laubrock on soprano and tenor; and Mary Halverson on electric guitar – an instrument which really seems to shape the set, and give it a different feeling than most other Braxton recordings! Halvorsen is wonderful here – and can blend notes and textures in this beautiful way that really seems to work especially well with the reeds. The 2CD set features long performances from two different nights in Brazil – performances of "Composition No 366d" and "Composition No 367b". CD

✨✧ Teddy WilsonMr Wilson – The Fabulous Teddy Wilson At The Piano ... LP
Columbia, 1950. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Teddy Wilson's definitely fabulous here – playing with a sense of poise and timing that really links together a number of different piano jazz traditions – no surprise, given how many different scenes Teddy influenced! The setting is simple – just a trio format, with either Al Hall or Al McKibbon on bass, and JC Heard or Kansas Fields on drums – but throughout the record, Wilson is at center stage – working at a level that may well be solo, as his inherent sense of rhythm and swing comes through so strongly in his own notes, there need not be any role for any other instrumentation at all! Most tunes are familiar – but as with the best of Wilson's generation, they're completely remade and remodeled into very personal expressions. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "These Foolish Things", "Rosetta", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "I Surrender Dear", "Bess You Is My Woman", and "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea".

✨✧ Fabrizio Bosso & Gianni BassoFive Brothers – Remembering Chet & Jeru Chapter 1 ... CD
Philology (Italy), 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just the west coast tribute album you might expect from the title – as the lead horn players bring plenty of their own depth to the music! The album's a bit more composed than some other efforts we've heard from trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso and tenorist Gianni Basso – but it also still opens up strongly with their own well-voiced tones on their respective instruments – buoyed along with tight rhythms from a trio that features pianist Andrea Pozza, bassist Luciano Milanese, and drummer Stefano Bagnoli. Bosso plays a bit of flugelhorn on the set, and titles on this first volume include "Five Brothers", "Bernie's Tune", "Blues For Gerry", "A Ballad", "Frenesi", and "Broadway". CD

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaMagnetic Systems ... CD
Cinevox/Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A tremendous trio from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 70s – Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – all great talents on their own, but a real powerhouse of grooves when they got together on work like this! The Bixio-Fizzi-Tempera name always meant something extra-groovy on a record – either an extra-funky soundtrack with lots of weird touches, or the kind of cool Italian single that might be somewhere between sound library funk and more progressive material – a really rich array of sounds that came from the trio during their years working together in the mid 70s! This package brings together some of the best cuts from those days, with an extra special Finders Keepers/Andy Votel ear for the weirdest and most unusual sounds – which creates an album that's plenty funky, but in ways that are very different from the usual US or European styles of the time. Basslines, heavy drums, spacey keyboards, and odd guitar sounds abound – and titles include "Electronic Sound", "Avangiu", "Godzilla", "Allucinazione Mistiche", "Death's Song", "Escape", "Vai Gorilla", "Night Club Dance", "The Hunt Down", and "Concessioni Naturali".

✨✧ Slim GaillardVout For Voutoreenees ... CD
Fabulous (UK), 1940s. Used ... $3.99
Classic work from Slim Gaillard – a vocalist so great, he created his own language! Slim worked in late 30s and early 40s LA – in the years before the city's big post-war R&B boom – and in a mode that would clearly pave the way for Charles Moore, Nat King Cole, and countless others in years to come. Slim's best known for his "vout" style of singing – a unique mode that often had him making up new words in the recording sessions – getting carried away with the rhythmic quality of his own tunes, and vocally improvising in a style that was years ahead of its time. The backings on these sides range from small group trio and quartet numbers, to a few larger orchestra tracks – and all are carried off with a lively approach to the work, and a good healthy dose of the Gaillard sense of humor! The set's a great introduction to Slim's classic years, and features a total of 18 tracks that include "Opera In Vout", "Dunkin Bagel", "Central Avenue Boogie", "Ya Ha Ha", "Cement Mixer", "Laguna", "Slim's Jam", "Buck Dance Rhythm", "Harlem Hunch", "Boogin At Berg's", "Vout Oreenee", and "Chicken Rhythm".

Barney KesselBreakfast At Tiffany's ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the grooviest albums ever recorded by guitarist Barney Kessel – a sweet reworking of Henry Mancini's fabulous music for Breakfast At Tiffanys! The set's got a warm feel and more than a bit of bossa nova inspiration – similar to some of the other Kessel and Shorty Rogers projects for Reprise at the time – and the group features some wicked reed work from Bud Shank and Paul Horn, both of whom add some great color to the set – and make it way more than just another trio date from Kessel! The whole thing's wonderful – filled with favorites from the Mancini songbook – titles that include "Something For Cat", "Sally's Tomato", "Mr Yunioshi", "The Big Blowout", "Hub Caps & Tail Lights", "Breakfast At Tiffany's", "Latin Golightly", "Loose Caboose", and "Moon River Cha Cha".

✨✧ AzymuthAzimuth (Linha Do Horizonte) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City".

HolidaysGetting Kind Of Soulful ... CD
Soul Junction (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99
There was actually more than one group working under the name of The Holidays during the golden years of soul music in Detroit – but given the strength of the tracks on this set, this trio may well have been one of the best! You might know another Holidays from Northern Soul 60s fame – but this group is much more of a 70s harmony outfit overall – working here in a range of rare singles and unreleased tracks that are totally outta sight – almost like some of the better east coast harmony soul of the period, although without some of the polish of the disco years. The work here was issued under a few variations of their name – including The Fabulous Holidays and New Holidays – and titles include "Maybe So Maybe No", "The Love We Share", "I'm So Glad That I Met You", "Too Many Times", "Love Lost", "Ego Tripping", "Procrastinate", "If I Only Knew", "Lazy Day", and "You Make Me Weak".

Don Moye/Baba Sissoko/Maurizio CaponeFolk Bass Spirit Suite – Tribute To Malachi Favors, Marcello Melis, Johnny Dyani & Djeli Baba Sissoko ... CD
Itinera (Italy), 2004. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful little tribute record – one that would certainly make Malachi Favors and Johnny Dyani proud! Percussionist Don Moye's working here with a decidedly African feel – and in addition to a core trio with Baba Sissoko on tama, n'goni, and other percussion – and Maurizio Capone on congas, drums, and other instruments – the record's also got some additional singers on most numbers, bringing in a nicely spiritual feel, and a lot more warmth than usual for Moye! In a way, the record's the sort we've been looking for for years – amidst all the promised African-inspired records from the Art Ensemble that are either too avant, or too hokey – and this time around, the balance is handled just right, with a sound that's wonderful – almost like some of the best jazz/world experiments coming from the Paris scene at the start of the 70s! Other instrumentation includes guitar, Fender Rhodes, and surdo – and singers include Fabiana Martone and Marcello Colasurdo. Titles include "Duania", "Soumale", "Ma Fille", "Salamandra", "Mama Marimba", "Folo Folo", "Sidi Fini", "Ode To Wilbur Ware", and "African Groove". CD

VariousLost Chicano Oldies Vol 2 ... CD
Lost Soul, 1960s/1970s. Used ... $6.99
Sweet Latin soul from LA! The set brings together 13 tracks that sum up that "east side sound" – Chicano oldies that mix together harmony soul, Latin rhythms, and some rough-edged vocals – and just about every track is a rare single-only cut! Titles include "To You" by The Generations, "She Loves Me" by The Third Position Trio, "Wait Till I Find Her" by The Fabulous Filtrations, "You're Mine" by TSU Tornadoes, "I Love You But You Don't Know Me" by The Escorts, "Brown & Beautiful" by Jade, "You Need A Love" by The Players & The Premiers, "By The Time I Get To Texas" by Thee Runabouts, "Nothing Can Change My Love For You" by The Bandits, and "This Is The Beginning" by El Paso Premier.

✨✧ VariousArock/Serock/Sylvia – Soul Story Continued ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A trio of New York labels from the 60s – all of which worked together closely, under the guidance of the mighty Al Sears – and turned out a motherlode of uptown soul gems in the process! The work here is mostly deeper than any chart hits of the time – tunes that have all the care and perfection of soul material you'd hear from bigger NY labels of the time – like Atlantic, Wand, or Scepter – but the cuts are all pretty darn obscure, in a way that makes the collection a huge discovery in soul! A few artists are ones who scored big on other imprints, but most are much lesser-known – yet there's a focus and clarity to these tunes, right from the start – the best sort of New York soul sharpness of the time, cut with a few deep soul touches too. Titles include "I Can't Stay Away" by Joan Moody, "When The Going Gets Rough" by Tutti Hill, "Take My Hand" by Gene Burks, "Love Is Such A Good Thing" by The Corvairs, "It Won't Work Out" by Junior Lewis, "Did You Hear" by Don Covay, "Another Sleepless Night" by The Larks, "Kindness Love & Understanding" by Eddie King, "Something Else" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "You Were All I Needed" by The DC Playboys, "This Is My Prayer" by Theola Kilgore, "It Ain't No Big Thing" by Van McCoy, "Chained Am I" by Ansler Montell, "I Wanna Come In" by Billy Washington, and "Nobody But Me" by Sinner Strong.
