Dave BrubeckMy Favorite Things ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1965. Used ... $13.99
There's plenty of favorite things going on here – the alto of Paul Desmond, piano of Dave Brubeck, bass of Gene Wright, and drums of Joe Morello – that perfect Dave Brubeck Quartet, captured here at the height of their powers! The set's got no gimmicks, no special settings, but the group manage to make things every bit as impressive as on all their high concept records of the period – really finding a way to open up older songs with completely fresh energy, and really make them their own! Dave has an especially great tone to his piano – maybe a bit more human and personal than on some other records – and titles include "My Favorite Things", "Why Can't I", "Little Girl Blue", "This Can't Be Love", "The Circus On Parade", and "Over & Over Again".

Fumio KarashimaMy Favorite Things ... CD
Pit Inn (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $28.99
One of the most spiritual albums we've heard in years from pianist Fumio Karashima – a set that has the Japanese jazz legend working with a host of different guests, including some horn players who really give his music some depth! The choice of material is great – and Karashima eschews most of his own compositions for work by Herbie Hancock, Duke Pearson, Jimmy Heath, Bobby Hutcherson, and others – given lively readings by an ensemble who really know how to burst out at the front, then soar with these very strong solos. The album features a great reading of "My Favorite Things", with a unique use of two bassists; a spare duet with trumpeter Terumasa Hino on "Black Orpheus"; guest work from guitarist Kazumi Watanabe on "Chan's Song"; and nice takes on "So Near So Far", "Gingerbread Boy", "Subtle Neptune", and "Jeannine".

✨✧ John ColtraneMy Favorite Things ... LP
Atlantic, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My Favorite Things" a million times – but it still blows our mind the way Coltrane hits this incredibly soulful modal groove, twisting and turning on soprano sax, always keeping things interesting, so that we're surprised that the cut's 13 minutes have gone by so quickly! The rest of the record's equally great – and the 3 other long cuts are "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Summertime" and "But Not for Me". As great today as when it was cut, and still one of Coltrane's most revelatory albums! With McCoy Tyner on piano, Steve Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

ArianArian ... LP
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99
Arian's perm on the cover gives you a hint of how the set might sound – and the whole thing is maybe even better than you might think! The album's an unusual soul set from early 80s Yugoslavia – with vocals that are partly in English, and a sound that's heavy on the same kind of keyboards and basslines that you'd hear coming from the New York scene – on tunes that include some numbers penned by Hubert Eaves and Bobby Caldwell – and sung by Arian with a blue-eyed soul approach – in vocals that are maybe not as strong as his American contemporaries, but which more than make up for their lack with an overall sense of groove. Titles include "Your Love Makes Me A Winner", "Sure It's Funky", "Still Together", "Novi Susret", "Can't Say Goodbye", and "Lutas Velikim Gradom". LP, Vinyl record album

Mr PresidentNumber One ... LP
Favorite (France), 2011. New Copy ... $19.99
Producer, multi-instrumentalist and all around funky soul patriot Mr President, aka Patchworks delivers a solid full length for the Favorite label! Rave up instrumentals and vocal numbers featuring guests Mr Day, Mounam, Hawa and JRMNM and it wins on both levels – with nods to classic and hip hop era funk. Mr President handles all the production and instrumentation himself, and quite impressively so. Titles include "Meet Again", "From South To North", "Tribute To RZA", a cover of "Love And Happiness" with Mr Day, "The Best Is Yet To Come" with Mr Day & Hawa, "You Move Me" and more.

Calvin B RhoneI Believe/Lord!/We've Come To Praise Him ... 12-inch
Favorite (France), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A beautiful mix of secular and spiritual, gospel and club – in a mode that's very much like the classic work of the Clark Sisters at the start of the 80s! Calvin B Rhone is maybe even hipper, though – as this single has a very tight small group approach – sharp keyboards over a bad-stepping groove on "I Believe" – a warmer, soaring vibe on "Lord" – and a snappy, catchy lyric on "We've Come To Praise Him"! There's a current of jazz on all the cuts – almost as if Donny Hathaway had made it to the early 80s, and opened up his groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Joao SelvaNatureza ... LP
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
A fantastic album of Brazilian funk, and one that's got a great contemporary twist, too – given that the whole thing is a collaboration between singer Joao Selva and Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart! Patchworks handles most of the instrumentation here – apart from some percussion from Selva – and the groove is right in the very best samba soul modes of the early 70s – that slinky, funky territory that you'd find on the best records by Jorge Ben and some of the many artists he influenced – presented here in a perfect style that feels far more vintage than you'd expect, and which has none of the clubbier touches of other Patchworks projects! Selva's a great singer too – with a raspy charm that's beautiful – and which, again, is very much in the spirit of the sound he's going for. Titles include "Pessoas", "Se Foi", "Maria", "Perto De Ti", "Babado Forte", and "Natureza". LP, Vinyl record album

Al SunnyTime To Decide ... LP
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
Guest what? They DO make 'em like they used to – at least in terms of 70s AOR – which seems to be having a wonderful comeback in the hands of singers like Al Sunny! The record's contemporary, but could have easily been crafted in the LA studios of the mid 70s – as Al's got a wonderful ear for easygoing grooves, top-shelf instrumentation, and just the right sort of production polish to put the whole thing together without ever making things sound too slick! The great Florian Pellissier is on board to help out on all the tracks – playing some excellent Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and other keyboards – and showing us yet another side of his surprisingly wide talents. Titles include a great remake of the Ned Doheny track "Get It Up For Love" – plus "Open Up Your Eyes", "Supervision", "Time To Decide", "Beautiful Lady", and "Since I've Been Loving You".

Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
Three great tracks from one of our favorite Patchworks projects! "African Music" has a song that lives up to its title, but also has the warmly clubby vibe that we love from Voilaaa – which almost makes the whole thing feel like a late 70s post-colonial track recorded in Paris – right down to the strong lead vocals from Lass! "Decalement" has cool fast-scatting vocals from Pat Kalla on the vocal version, plus a cool plucked string wrapped around the groove – and "Problems" is more of a straighter, high-stepping club track – with very offbeat vocals from Sir Jean! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Voilaaa (Patchworks)Des Promesses ... CD
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – served up here in his Voilaaa project, which might well be our favorite of all his many musical enterprises! The groove brings together funky club with some slight touches of 70s Afro Funk – maybe not as much as you'd guess from the image on the cover, but definitely an ear for Nigerian grooves in the way that Bruno uses horns over the top of most tracks – and creates these fast-stepping rhythms that have some nicely complex percussion patterns! The whole thing almost feels like the best of those post-colonial projects that were recorded in Paris in the late 70s – especially given the French lyrics on the vocal cuts – and titles include "People", "Mambo Football", "Mbele", "Problems", "Our La Vie", "African Music", "Decalement", and "La France".

VariousAOR Global Sounds 1977 to 1982 ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
AOR sounds from around the globe – proof that sweet, smooth 70s grooves didn't just come from studios in California and New York! The records here are all relatively obscure – mostly non-American acts, but working with a wonderfully groovy, wonderfully laidback style – nicely polished, but never too slick or commercial – and very much in that special spirit that's been lauded of late by the growing waves of AOR collectors around the globe! Most numbers come across with a nicely soulful vibe, and a fair bit of jazzy inflections – and although the pace is usually somewhat slow-stepping, there's definitely a groove in place on all these tracks! Titles include "Je Suis En Amour" by Diane Tell, "Rio Sinal Verde" by Junior Mendes, "Got To Be Lovin You" by Erik Tagg, "Peppermint Park" by Paul Hart, "Space Lady" by Ulla, "In Alto Mare" by Loredana Berte, "Neon" by Placa Luminosa, and "Lihue" by Nohelani Cypriano.

VariousCaribbean Disco Boogie Sounds – Rare & Obscure Gems From The Caribbean Territories 1977 to 1982 ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
A killer collection of funky soul from the Caribbean – not tracks that have a typical island sort of sound, with roots in calypso, soca, or reggae – and instead just he kind of key cuts that match the best underground work on the New York scene! Keep in mind that lots of American disco came from musicians who'd moved up north from the Caribbean – bringing a sunny spirit and driving rhythms in the process, as well as a post-colonial, diaspora approach to the music – which was then fused with American soul and funk for the clubs! This set has a very similar vibe, but just reverses the process – with grooves that borrow plenty from the hipper club styles of the late 70s and early 80s, and come across with a freshly non-commercial vibe, given their Caribbean roots. We'd never heard most tracks here before – hats off to Waxist for compiling the collection – and titles include "Cosmopolitan London" by Ray Williams, "Praise Jah" by Oluko Imo, "My African Religion" by Paul Hurlock, "Going To The Party" by Barry Bryson, "Let Me Love You" by Teddy Davis, and "Macho Man" by Eddie & The Movement.

VariousFrench Disco Boogie Sounds Vol 2 – 1978 to 1985 – Selected By Charles Maurice ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
That's a suave-looking dude on the cover, and there's some suave-sounding sounds within – the cream of the crop of the hippest spectrum of the French club scene at the start of the 80s, brought together in a beautiful package of grooves! The work here is quite different than some of the cheesier, clunkier Euro disco hits of the time – and instead, there's a lot of care and craft brought to the rhythms and lyrics – often a lot more soul elements than you might expect, and with occasional global currents that reflect the unique sound of Paris in the postcolonial years. There's almost an AOR catchiness to some of the tunes, but the presentation is more strongly soulful overall – on titles that include "Bye Cocotiers" by Marc Ashy, "Keep Cool" by Messan, "Sunshine" by Greg Smaha, "Sheriff's Horse" by Roots, "Funky Biguine" by Crystal, "Havana" by Nielo Feel, "Funk Force Leader" by Ideku Dynasty, "Talk Me Mam's" by Black Bells Group, "Le Sherif Qui Danse" by Claude Morgan, and "Givin It Up" by Charms.

A great look at the farther reaches of AOR during the glory days of the genre – not the oft-played hits that still seem to clutter the radio airwaves all these many decades later – but instead a big batch of underground tracks that serve up all the best modes of the style, but in a really fresh way! These aren't just the smooth sounds from New York and Los Angeles studios in the late 70s – but instead they're tracks from around the planet – often done at a level that has a more deeply soulful vibe than more commercial music – and which crosses over nicely to collectors of rare boogie cuts from the early 80s, or fans of late 70s modern soul! Most tracks have English language lyrics – despite their global sources – and titles include "Girl" by Stratus, "Mais Uma Chance" by Willy Santana, "It's About Time" by Funky Team, "More Than A Minute" by Billy Always, "It's Always Something With You" by Jeff Silna, "Dirt In The Sky" by 7 Days Unlimited, "Keeps Me Hanging On" by Stacey, "Light Unto The World" by Archie James Cavanaugh, "The Heckler" by Jon Konteau, "Heart To Heart" by Out Of The Fog, "Harbor Place" by Steve Turner, and "Don't Let The Devil" by George Nasif.

✨✧ VariousBrazilian Disco Boogie Sounds Vol 2 – 1977 to 1984 ... LP
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s – one of the few global sites to really capture the same sort of energy of American funk and soul, yet still be able to give it a great local twist of its own! From the bossa years onwards, Brazil was always full of super-tight musicians – and by the time the 70s rolled around, there were plenty of records with grooves as great as work in the US from greats like Kool & The Gang or Earth Wind & Fire – both groups who've clearly provided a lot of inspiration to most of the acts on this set! And like some of the best American groups, the Brazilian once started to change their style a bit once the 70s came to a close – with these lean, funky modes that are mighty nice – and which were maybe already more present in Brazil than they were in the American mainstream. But all that history aside, this is one smoking little set – killer clubby funk tracks that have a flavor that's completely universal, even if you can't understand the lyrics – but even the way those lyrics are sung, they're plenty darn catchy, even without the benefit of language. Titles include "Amgio Branca" by Marcia Maria, "To Parada Nua Tua" by Almir Ricardi, "Contigo" by Adriana, "Cara Feita" by Kaito, "Alegria No Ar" by Rosana, "Natureza Viva" by Brenda, "Minas Do Rei Salomao" by Cristina Camargo, and "Valeu A Pena" by Lady Zu.

Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
That's a mighty sexy cover on the front – and the grooves inside definitely have the flavor to match! The work here is from the obscure French disco underground – a European scene that never got the same exposure as German or Italian work for clubs – which makes the whole package a really great discovery in sound! The music is surprisingly fresh, and often quite funky too – and done in modes that are arguably warmer and more soulful than most other European disco – and often a lot like the best American underground club of the period. Some tracks have breathy female vocals, while others have bolder lyrics that almost echo some of the global musical crossovers happing in 70s Paris and a few of the later tracks bring in electro elements, but in a subtle way we totally love. The collection's a follow-up to the Brazilian Disco Boogie Sounds compilation – and like that one, it's really a cut above the usual! Titles include "Super Star" by Contessa, "Lady Jones" by Over Drive, "Music Madness (ext Charles Maurice version)" by Beckie Bell, "Y'A Du Blues" by Marche Noire, "Un Fait Divers & Rien De Plus (re-remix)" by Le Club, "Pour Moi Ca Va (Charles Maurice version)" by France Lise, "Polar (Charles Maurice version)" by Bernard Guyvan, and "Minuit L'Heure Du Swing" by Didier Makaga.

A wicked boogie from from Magic Source – a contemporary recording, but one with a classic sort of vibe! That quality's no surprise, given that Bjorn Wagner's at the head – fresh from experience in the Mighty Mocambos, but showing much more of a late 70s club style here – with lots of snapping percussion, sweet keyboard lines, a sax solo, and female chorus vocals – almost making the whole thing sound like some of the grooviest French club tracks from years back!

The original is almost more than enough for us – as Beckie Bell's vocals are wonderful, with a high-tipping range that really grabs us like the female singers in Ramp – and a bottom groove that's heavy on live conga and percussion, which get a nice space of their own near the end! Voilaaa's remix keeps things pretty classic, but just adds in a slightly heavier bassline – and on the flipside, Tom Noble opens the tune up even more at the bottom, and adds some cool moogy bits – and that side of the single seems to have a whole bonus "secret" song too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

The production is tight, but never too slick – and the tunes have this extended, open flow that makes for some especially striking moments – maybe a bit of jazz in some of the Fender Rhodes, or a breezy, almost scatting quality to some of the French language lyrics – which are sung by both a male and female singer. The whole thing's quite different than Haitian or other modes from the time – and titles include "Ti Gacon", "Nostalgie", "Music Life", "Santo Domingo", "Lan Mise", and "Fantastic Girl".

Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet sounds from the Peruvian scene of the 60s and 70s – music that starts in more familiar Latin modes, then quickly expands to a range of other hip South American sounds! The mix of modes here is maybe similar to the Colombian music of the period – sometimes romping with fast-moving rhythms, sometimes a bit more complicated, in ways that really unlock the jazzier sides of the instrumentation – and which echo some of our favorite New York work of the time. There's a few organ-heavy tracks that are especially great – and the package is put together by Pablo Yglesias, who's done some other great sets of this nature. Titles include "Lamparita" by Los Compadres Del Ande, "Lluvia Con Nieve/El Molestoso" by Carlos Pickling Y Su Organo Espacial, "Lobos Al Escape" by Andres De Colbert Y Su Orquesta, "La Palmadita" by Los Blacanguay, "Son Con Boogaloo" by Pedro Miguel Y Sus Maracaibos, "Tambores De La Selva" by Juaneco Y Su Combo, and "Nuestro Pobreza" by Chacal Y Sus Estrellas.

The set focuses on the lesser-known gems of the Spring and Event labels – companies who were well-known for bigger hits by Joe Simon, Millie Jackson, and others – but who also cut some sublime singles in a modern soul mode, many of which were new discoveries to our ears before this CD! The package is really incredible – filled with 23 cuts that really opened our ears to the labels, and which do a fantastic job of blending mellow, sophisticated, and bits of southern soul in the 70s! Titles include "What Did I Do Wrong" by The Mayberry Movement, "You Didn't Love Me Anyhow" by Act One, "I Can't Believe You Love Me" by Lou Jackson, "House For Sale" by Millie Jackson, "Alakazam" by Sonny Ross, Time" by Don Williams & The Exchange, "There's Another In My Life" by Phillip Mitchell, "Can I Get A Witness" by Jackie Verdell, "C'Mon & Give It Up" by Clare Bathe, "Please Come Home" by Garland Green, "I'm The Other Half Of You" by Ray Godfrey, and "Lead Me On" by The Internationals.

✨✧ VariousSoul Sok Sega – Sega Sounds From Mauritius 1973 to 1979 ... CD
Strut (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music you've probably never heard before – all from the tiny island of Mauritius in the 70s, and served up in a stunning mix of funk, blues, and soul! The grooves here are very offbeat – with rhythms that belie the island's location in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, mixed with more contemporary touches on electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – set to lyrics that are often sung in French, usually with these haunting changes and oddly melancholy modes – all of which makes for music that's every bit as emotively powerful as it is downright groovy! Strut Records have always turned us on to new and unusual sounds – but this time around, they've really done something special – and the collection is one of our favorite releases ever from the long-running label. Titles include "Afro Mauricien" by Georges Jean Louis, "Mo Mari Fini Alle" by Catherine Velienne, "Elida" by Michel Legris, "Mone Lasser Dire Toi" by Harold Berty, "Bhai Aboo" by Claudio, "Mo Parrain" by Christophe, "Manuel Bitor" by John Kenneth Nelson, "Eliza" by Georgie Joi, and "Soul Sock Sega" by Ti L'Afrique.

Earl AnderzaOuta Sight (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A lost treasure from the glory days of the LA soul jazz bop scene of the early 60s! Alto player Earl Anderza has this crazy tone that's unlike anything we've ever heard – and he plays with a calculated approach to atonality that hints at later work by Ayler and others – but which comes across here a lot more straight ahead. Unlike Ayler, Anderza is backed by a tight soul jazz combo that includes stunning work by pianist Jack Wilson, one of our all-time favorite players – working here on both straight piano and electric harpsichord – which has a very crazy sound! Other players include George Morrow and Jimmy Bond on bass, plus Donald Dean on drums – and titles include "Blues Baroque", "Freeway", "Benign", and a great version of Wilson's modal classic "Outa Sight"! Plus, this great CD reissue also includes 3 bonus cuts that weren't on the orignal album! CD

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

Arrested Development3 Years, 5 Months, & 2 Days In The Life Of ... LP
Capitol, 1992. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The debut of Arrested Development – a worthy critical favorite early in it's release cycle the went on the dismissed by lot of hip hop heads after it became a hit – and a solid, spiritually resonant effort well worth a reappraisal after all these years! They really was no other hip hop group quite like Arrested Development, then or now – led by producer, writer, vocalist Speech, with a solid bedrock of classic samples and live band instrumentation. Good stuff. Tracks include "Man's Final Frontier", "Mama's Always On Stage", "People Everyday", "Blues Happy", "Mr Wendal", "Children Play With Earth", "Raining Revolution", "Fishin 4 Religion", "Give A Man A Fish", "U", "Eve Of Reality", "Natural", "Dawn Of The Dreads", "Tennessee", and "Washed Away".

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoCertain Blacks (Inner City) ... LP
America/Inner City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers! The centerpiece of the album is the extended track "Certain Blacks (Do What They Wanna)" – done in a beautiful mix of politics and free group improvisation that come across with amazing power and clarity – making the piece one of the best translations of the Chicago AACM spirit to the European scene. Other tracks on the session include the soulfully spiritual number "One For Jarman", which captures the group at a uniquely laidback level – and the bluesy "Bye Bye Baby", which features one of the few pairings of the group with Chicago Beau and harmonica player Julio Finn.

ArtisticsI'm Gonna Miss You ... LP
Brunswick, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A really breakout moment for The Artistics – and the start of a really sublime run with the great Brunswick Records! The group had already broken a bit on Okeh a few years before – securing a top spot on the Chicago scene with their bouncy northern soul groove – a love of rhythm that made them as much a favorite on dancefloors as they were with fans of harmony soul. But on this sweet set, things come together even better than before – thanks to strong leads by singer Marvin Smith, who brings a real sense of personality to the group's harmonies – and wonderful Brunswick studio help that includes Sonny Sanders arrangements and Carl Davis production. The whole thing's wonderful – and tracks include the hit "I'm Gonna Miss You", plus "On & On", "Sweeter Than Sugar", "Hope We Have", "Girl I Need You", "You're Wonderful", and "Love Song".

Ashford & SimpsonGimme Something Real ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
One of our favorite albums from this legendary duo – Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson's first album for Warner Brothers, and compared to the numbers moved by biggest hits, you could call this one a hidden gem – filled with near perfect mellow soul jams and more sweetly soaring groovers alike! There are moments that steer it into more of a rootsy style, kind of an intimate take on the LA soul sound with easy going, elegant backings and production that's nicely tailored to voices, particular Valerie's lovely vocals – but those lead to bigger emotional payoff that hit you deep! This is an underappreciated early effort from the duo as a headlining act, and finds them setting up to change the sound of R&B to come! Titles include "Can You Make It Brother", "Bend Me", "Gimme Something Real", "I'm Determined", "I Need Your Light", "Anywhere", and "Have You Ever Tried It". LP, Vinyl record album

Clarice & Sergio AssadReliquia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2016. Used ... $4.99
Really lovely sounds from the father/daughter team of Clarice and Sergio Assad – a pair who would already be great as a musical duo, even without a family connection! Sergio plays acoustic guitar throughout – with a fullness of sound, but also the lighter, lyrical sensibility that makes him a perfect match for Clarice's vocals – which have that mix of jazz and more personal expression we love in our favorite Brazilian singers from the 70s – like Tania Maria or Joyce. The songs are simple, and often poetic – but never in a soppy way – more like they're being written in air by guitar and voice, creating a marvelous portrait in sound. Titles include "Capoeira", "Cidade", "Sol De Clave", "Ventos", "The Last Song", "Angela", and "Song For My Father". CD

Baby HueyBaby Huey Story – The Living Legend ... LP
Curtom, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of all types – working in a party-styled blend of funk, rock, and soul that was one of the most powerful grooves going down in the Windy City at the time! Huey sadly passed away at a very young age, leaving only this full album as his legacy – a great batch of hard-hitting soul tracks that are among some of the funkiest work ever recorded for the legendary Curtom label! The set includes Huey's classic version of "Mighty, Mighty", a club favorite from the live shows – plus the excellent Curtis Mayfield tune "Hard Times", famous as an oft-used sample track! Other titles include "A Change Is Going To Come", "California Dreamin", "Running", and "Mama Get Yourself Together". LP, Vinyl record album

Luis BacalovRicatto Alla Mala/La Polizia E Al Servizio De Cittadino ... CD
Point (Italy), 1972/1973. Used ... $14.99
Some fairly groovy stuff by composer Luis Bacalov, who's usually more known for straighter stuff in the soundtrack vein. Ricatto Alla Mala has a few tracks performed by The Country Lovers, who seem to be a groovy 60's style vocal group with a sound that's similar to Free Design. Other tracks have a cool pop/rock soundtrack feel, like stuff you might find in a biker film. Cuts include "Summertime Killer", "Motorcycle Circus", "Run & Run", and "Like A Play" – plus the unreleased 18 minute suite of "The Summertime Killer". La Polizia is a fantastic one, with lots of very cool off-beat strings, drums, and electronic bits comprising a very cool set of police themes with a very dark edge. It's one of our favorite soundtracks of this whole series, and the 8 tracks from the film appear here for the first time ever on any format! CD

✨✧ Burt BacharachButch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid ... LP
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems are some of the instrumentals – which have Burt almost doing a Tijuana take on his classic A&M sound – in a style that's really wonderful! Our favorite cut is the amazing "South American Getaway" – a breezy vocal scatting number that seems to take the best of the Swingle Singers and I Cantori Modern and roll them into one groovy tune that soars, dips, turns, twists, and holds our dear heart close for 5 minutes and 13 seconds! It's a real gem, and worth the price of the album alone – but you'll also get a few other nice ones, like "The Old Fun City", "The Sundance Kid", "Come Touch The Sun", and "Not Goin Home Anymore".

Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter ... LP
Epic, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter". A old favorite on the south side of Chicago! LP, Vinyl record album

Billy BangRainbow Gladiator ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1981. Used ... $9.99
Proof again that Billy Bang is one of our favorite jazz musicians to ever pick up a violin – because Bang has a way of handling the instrument that opens up into grooves unlike anyone else! The set's got a beautifully flowing, almost spiritual sound at times – one that has Bang getting some great energy out of a quintet that features Charles Tyler on alto and baritone sax, Michelle Rosewoman on piano, Wilbur Morris on bass, and Dennis Charles on drums. The title track has a wonderfully modal groove – and other numbers follow with a similar pulsing energy – one that's richly soulful, and makes the album a real Soul Note standout for the time. Titles include "Rainbow Gladiator, which runs for over 14 minutes – plus "Ebony Minstrel Man", "New York After Dark", "Broken Strings", "Yaa Woman Born On Thursday", and "Bang's Bounce". CD

Pierre BarouhDites 33 Vol 2 – Concert A L'Espace Pierre Cardin ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little live set from one of our favorite French singers – recorded in 1983, with backing by a small Japanese combo, very much in the manner of work on his album Le Pollen. Given that the album is such a studio-oriented session, it's interesting to hear the style of the work performed live – and it's also a great reminder that Barouh's fantastic vocals are what really carry his work in the long run. Backings are very subtle – awash with sound in a way that drifts easily with Pierre's changes in tone and emotion, all served up in that languid charm he first displayed in A Man & A Woman. Titles include "Chanson Pour Teddy", "Chats, Chiens, Chats", "L'autre Rive", "Pepe", 'Le Courage D'Aimer", and "Boule Qui Roule". CD

Ray BarrettoSenor 007 ... LP
United Artists, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during the period too. But despite that simple gimmick, it's a great little set – with a quality level that goes way beyond Bond soundtracks, or the usual from Barretto at the time! The tracks are all hard and groovy, with an excellent jazz feel – and some killer arranging from Ray that's right up there with the work he did for his legendary Charanga Moderna album! You may recognize the song titles – but their versions here are superb, and the album's filled with many many wonderful moments that step out with mad rhythms and great jazzy touches. Titles include "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "OO7", "Search For Vulcan", "Thunderball", and "Goldfinger". Nice "spy" shot of Ray on the cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Count BasieDance Session Vol 1 ... LP
Verve, 1953. Very Good ... $24.99
The first of Basie's excellent Dance Session albums for Verve – no-nonsense albums that really get at the high-grooving side of the group, and which feature the kind of compelling and catchy tunes that always made them a favorite on the dancefloor! The Count manages to play a bit of organ on the session, in the tone that we really like at the time – and arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, Neal Hefti, Johnny Mandel, and Frank Wess – on tracks that include "Straight Life", "Basie Goes Wess", "Cherry Point, "Plymouth Rock", "Peace Pipe", and "Bubbles". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe BataanSubway Joe ... LP
Fania, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite Latin soul albums ever – a rollicking mix of upbeat party tracks, gentle ballads, and more – all handled with the undeniable magic that is Joe Bataan at his best! The album kicks off with the fantastic groover "Subway Joe" – a hilarious tune about Joe trying to find a seat on the subway – and it rolls into killers like "Nuevo Jala Jala", "Juanito", "Ponte En Algo", and the wonderfully emotive "Special Girl". There's a really wonderful quality to all the tunes – honest, open, and done with instrumentation that includes lots of dark passages, yet which also continues to flower in hope! A landmark, and a record that delights us again and again over the years! LP, Vinyl record album

Apple/EMI, 1966. Very Good- ... $16.99
Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature and sweet lyrics on the love songs – cross-cut with a bit of witty social commentary too! Tracks include "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Love You To", "Here There & Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", and "For No One". LP, Vinyl record album
