Reparata & The DelronsBest Of Reparata & The Delrons ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
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 ... LP
MPS, 1971. Very Good+ ... $2.99
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"!

Fabrizio Bosso3 Essential Albums (Sol/You've Changed/Purple) (3CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Italy), 2007/2008/2013. New Copy 3 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of albums from this great trumpeter – packaged together in a nicely-priced set! Sol is a beautiful session from Italian trumpeter Fabrizo Bosso and saxophonist Javier Girotto – one that's filled with all the Latin Moods promised in the title! The set steps nicely off some of Bosso's other recent work for Blue Note – with a sound that's evocative, but also pretty lively too – especially given the small combo setting for the date! Bosso's trumpet and flugelhorn come into great play with Girotto's soprano and baritone sax lines – dancing beautifully over some rhythmic backings shaded in with keyboards, piano, and electric bass. The large booklet features some poetic prose that really set the scene for each tune – and although there's a bit of vocals on the record, most numbers are instrumental. Titles include "Volver", "Matias", "Pescao Blanco", "Wide Green Eyes", "Ochenta", "El Cacerolazo", "African Friends", and "Penny". You've Changed is a set that has the leader's warmly-crafted solos stepping out over some larger string arrangements from Paolo Silvestri! The music is great – fresher than you might expect, and not the usual batch of overplayed standards – given that Bosso mixes in music by folks like Ivan Lins, Marcos Valle, and Ennio Morricone – as well as some tunes of his own. The set features guest vocals from Dianne Reeves on one track, and soprano sax from Stefano Di Battista on two others – and titles include "Summer Samba", "Rio De Majo", "Estatew", "Joyful Day", "Nuovo Cinema Paradiso", and "Senza Fine". Purple is a set that has Fabrizio Bosso working with his Spiritual Trio – a group that features lots of Hammond organ, and plenty of tight drums! The "spiritual" in their name is a reference to an American gospel and soul tradition – one that's given plenty of play here, as most numbers are old spiritual standards from the church, reworked by Bosso into jazz instrumentals! Given the heavy use of organ, the approach is a bit like some of the Lou Bennett albums on the European scene of the 60s – with maybe a nod to the Donald Byrd albums of a spiritual nature for Blue Note. But there's also some very personal elements here too – either unusual instrumental inflections or production techniques, or some other aspects that show a greatly evolved understanding of this mode in jazz. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine", "Purple", "A Little 3/4 For God & Co", "Dreams Come True", "Wishy Washy", "Total Praise", "A Change Is Gonna Come", and "Wade In The Water". CD

Teddy WilsonMr Wilson – The Fabulous Teddy Wilson At The Piano ... LP
Columbia, 1950. Good+ ... $2.99
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 ... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Anthony BraxtonAnthony Braxton Quartet Ao Vivo Na Fabrica ... CD
SESCSP (Brazil), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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".

Jimmy GiuffreWestern Suite ... CD
Atlantic (France), 1957. Used ... $6.99
Leave it to the new set of French reissues to do a fabulous job with this, one of the best-ever Jimmy Giuffre albums! Jimmy's playing here in his classic piano-less trio format, in a group with Jim Hall on guitar and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone. The group was perhaps his best, and they achieve a perfect blend of free-flowing improvised lines, while still managing to retain a jazz swing (something that didn't always happen on Giuffre's other records). The centerpiece of the set is the extended "Western Suite" (don't be fooled by the name, because there's no sort of "Country & Western" tinge to it), and the record also includes beautiful long versions of "Blue Monk" and "Topsy". The whole thing is one of the most amazing jazz records ever recorded, and has an insane array of tones, colors, and sound shapes. Fantastic stuff, and beautifully repackaged with the original cover!

✨✧ AzymuthAzimuth (Linha Do Horizonte) ... CD
Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy ... 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". CD

VariousArock/Serock/Sylvia – Soul Story Continued ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ VariousLost Chicano Oldies Vol 2 ... CD
Lost Soul, 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. CD
(Note: CD appears to have been mastered from vinyl sources – and although printed professionally, it's a bit low-budget in terms of the packaging. CD may not play well on all players.)
