Felix CavaliereCastles In The Air ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Felix Cavaliere may be best known to some for his work in the Rascals – but years later, he stepped out as a solo act on his own – with a sound that nicely drew from all of his early work on Atlantic Records! The sound here is kind of a late 70s update of the blue-eyed mode that Felix had with his earlier group – given a bit more of an AOR spin in the production, through use of a top-shelf array of jazz fusion players in the backings. Despite the pianos on the cover, Cavaliere mostly plays Fender Rhodes and organ next to his vocals – on titles that include "Only A Lonely Heart Sees", "All Or Nothing", "People Got To Be Free", "Outside Your Window", "Love Is The First Day Of Spring", "You Turned Me Around", and "Good To Have Love Back". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

Hot 8 Brass BandSexual Healing (original, J Felix rmx, Ibidio Sound Machine rmx, Maddslinky rmx, Werkha rmx, Jonny Faith rmx) (gold vinyl pressing) ... 12-inch
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2007/2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $14.99
A groundbreaking single – the kind that will have you re-evaluating the brass band sound! Marvin Gaye's classic "Sexual Healing" is redone here as an amazing instrumental – a bit slow, but still plenty darn funky – with lots of blue notes, sad tinges, and offbeat horn phrasing – almost like a number by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble! The main version runs for nearly 9 minutes, and it gets a lot of sweet extra remix treatment on this anniversary single! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Gold vinyl pressing – includes download with bonus tracks!)

✨✧ Gabriel Grossi & Felix JuniorNascente – A Musica De Hermeto E Guinga ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two younger Brazilian music serve up a tribute to the music of older Brazilian giants – the guitarist Guinga, and sublime composer/multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal! Yet the setting here is quite different than you might expect – at least for the music of Pascoal – as the duo work with just the harmonica of Gabriel Grossi, and seven string guitar of Felix Junior – but in a pairing that still manages to open up with all the complexities of the songs! Grossi's an especially great discovery – blowing with all the vivid tonal depth of some of our few favorite Brazilian harmonicists from the past – and in a legacy that might well put him up there alongside Toots Thielemans and Mauricio Einhorn, for his ability to create sounds with the richness of a reed instrument. The set includes a few Pascoal compositions – "Balaio", "O Farol Que Nos Guia", "Suite Norte Sul Leste Oeste", and "Fatima" – plus Guinga tunes "Exasperada", "Baiao De Lacan", and "De Menor" – and originals by the duo, very much in the right spirit for the setting – with titles that include "Senhorinha", "Domingo Pascoal", and "Selva De Pedra".

✨✧ Felix KubinZemsta Plutona ... CD
Omni (Australia), 2013. Used ... Out Of Stock
Felix Kubin looks a lot like an alien on the cover of this set – and sounds a fair bit like a space visitor in the music as well! The work's got this very cool blend of electronics and playful rhythms – served up in a style that really takes us back to some of our favorite German work of the post-punk years – particularly the music of Der Plan and Pyrolator, both of whom would be a great comparison to Kubin's work! The tunes are catchy and playful, but also have this undercurrent of darkness too – and loads of analogue elements that bristle and crackle in this very cool way – like you've tapped into some spaceship out in the ether, and are able to unload all the grooves going on in their soundsystem. Titles include "Restez En Ligne", "Zemsta Plutona", "Swinging 40s", "Lightning Strikes", "Atomium Vertigo", and "Nachts Im Park". CD

Gary BartzSingerella – A Ghetto Fairy Tale ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the last Gary Bartz albums for Prestige – and a really unique session with a different feel than some of his earlier work! Gary's still got plenty of angular funk in his sound here – thanks to some edgey keyboards from Hubert Eaves – but he's also tightened things up a bit without smoothing them out – cutting down on the longer jams in favor of a more focused approach, and singing himself on many cuts, taking on the quirky lyrical role that used to be held by Andy Bey! Bartz also produced the record himself, but Larry Mizell handled the final mix – giving the record a slightly spacier Mizell-inflected groove, but one that's not as full as on other Bartz/Mizell collaborations. The vocals here are all pretty great, and the album's filled with oddly-grooving tunes that really have a heck of a lot of charm – including the call-response track "Dozens", plus "I Don't Care", "Lady Love", "St Felix Street", "Nation Time", and "Blind Man".

Rodney FranklinYou'll Never Know ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Fully-formed genius from the amazing Rodney Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Franklin's got a great talent for balancing influences from jazz and soul in ways that are similar to contemporaries George Duke and Bobby Lyle – and like both of those players, he still stands strong in jazz, but makes some key nods to soul music on this set – adding in a bit of vocals where needed, and moving into some R&B-drenched fusion lines that all sound pretty darn hip! As on previous records, Rodney plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man".

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Harleighblu's vocals are in some wonderful company here – a host of different guests and producers who each give the individual tunes a special flavor – while still allowing the soulful lady to very much do her thing! The vocals are maybe even bolder than on the previous record – sometimes with the brashness of the best of the contemporary underground soul scene, sometimes with even more grit and a raspy quality that almost feels timeless – alongside help from SpectraSoul, Brother Mike, Audio Sparks, Captain Supernova, Azure, J-Felix, Lost Midas, and others. Titles include "Forget", "Another One", "Reverse", "For Fun", "Tell Em", "Meant To Be", "MMM", and "Real Good". CD

Kensington MarketAvenue Road (white cover) ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Surprisingly soulful stuff from this Canadian combo – an album produced by Felix Pappalardi, with a sound that definitely shows his touch! Although they've got a British-sounding name, the group work in much warmer territory overall – personally-penned tunes that sometimes have the gentleness of folk, but often have a fuller presence too – especially in the way the vocals come up close, and the instrumental mix has a nice sense of depth. There's some compelling use of trumpet alongside the core guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums – and the album also features a bit of sitar too. Titles include "Phoebe", "I Would Be The One", "Speaking Of Dreams", "Looking Glass", "Beatrice", "Girl Is Young", and "Presenting Myself Lightly". LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta OlivieriSwingin Combination ... LP
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great little album of boogaloos and hard Latin tracks – one of the few rare gems on the long-lost Speed label. The set features the work of the Orquesta Olivieri, led by trumpeter Herbie Olivieri, and featuring more trumpet, piano, and percussion, plus lead vocals by Angelo Jiminez and Felix Pipe Pagan. About half the album is straight boogaloo – as you'd guess by titles like "Don't Be Shy", "African Guajira", "Wabble With Boogaloo", and "A Swingin Combination" – and the rest is driving Latin, with that great late 60s small combo sound!

✨✧ Chris Potter, Steve Wilson, & OthersComing Together ... CD
Inarhyme, 2009. Used ... $5.99
A moody little set – one that features an array of great players in slightly shifting lineups, working through a good deal of original music by Brendan Romaneck, plus a handful of extra standards! There's kind of no core to the album in terms of the players, and that makes for a nicely unsettling feel – you almost don't know what to expect from track to track. Pianist Keith Javors is on the most tracks, but still isn't on the first one – and Chris Potter plays soprano and tenor sax on 6 numbers, while Steve Wilson plays alto and soprano on 5 other cuts. Terrell Stafford's on four of the tracks with Wilson, and bassist Delbert Felix and drummer John Davis make shifting appearances throughout the set too. The tunes have a shifting array of colors that's really great – showing the change of players is no accident at all – and titles include "The Vibe", "Minion", "11 02", "You'll Never Know", "3 Steps Ahead Of The Spider", and "Dream Behind The Winter".

SeguidaLove is...Seguida ... LP
Fania, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
Fierce and funky grooves from the glory days of the NuYorican scene! The album's a killer – filled with uptempo tracks that mix together Latin funk, jazz, and salsa – into an electrified groove that burns mightily across all the tracks! The album's got a great blend of electric keys and funky bass, layered against lots of acoustic percussion and cutting horn solos on soprano, tenor, and flute. Most tracks have vocals, and overall, the album's sort of a funkier version of the legendary Harlem River Drive album – if you can believe that! Titles include "Love Is", "NYC Blues Day", "Afro Rican Suite (parts 1 & 2)", "Mambo Rock", and "Funky Felix". LP, Vinyl record album

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99 29.99
One of the coolest styles of music in the Caribbean – and one that never got as much exposure as it should in the Anglo world at the time – even though there's a fair bit of jazz at play in the sounds on this collection! Biguine's a very unique hybrid from the Antilles – a mixture of early jazz, Latin rhythms, and some of the island vocal modes of the period – all given a sharper focus, with a new sort of post-colonial energy – more than enough class too reach audiences in Paris, but enough bite to rival small combo creole jazz too. The package is wonderful – 3CDs' worth of material, with 66 tracks in all – divided up into three different strands of biguine, with notes in both English and French. Includes work by Robert Mavounzy, Felix Valvert, Orchestre Sensia, Leona Gabriel, Nelly Lungla, Eugene Delouche, Kaukira Boys, Rico's Creole Band, Bal Blomet, Maiotte Almaby, and others. CD

Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A wonderful collection of rare gems from Peru – a varied, diverse region with the far-reaching, sweltering sounds to show for it – selected by master compiler Pablo Yglesias from a treasure trove of hard-to-find records! It's diverse stuff for sure, but common threads of feverish percussion, tropical grooves and passionate vocals – whether it's a melodic solo voice, a sweet chorus or punchy soul grunts – hold it all together despite the time span and stylistic range. It's a really generous collection, too – with 20 tracks in all! Includes "Quiero Bailar Contigo" by La Sanora De Lucho Macedo, "Serrano" by Los Rumbaney, "Me Voy Llorando" by Felix Martinez, "Macondo" by Johnny Arce Y Sus Orates, "La Palmadita" by Los Blacanguay, "Nuestra Pobreza" by Chacal Y Sus Estrellas, CD

✨✧ Rodney FranklinRodney Franklin/You'll Never Know ... CD
Columbia/Superbird (UK), 1980. New Copy ... About January 4, 2017
Tremendous work from Rodney Franklin – one of our favorite soulful fusion players of the era – and 2 albums back-to-back! The Rodney Franklin album is a keyboard delight through and through – and Rodney plays both acoustic and electric piano, often on the same track – which creates this nicely expanded sound that works well with the album's tight arrangements! There's a fair bit of soul in the mix too – some rhythms that make a few numbers great groovers, courtesy of Tom Tom arrangements – and some other full moments handled by Patrick Williams. Titles include a wonderful version of "Windy City" – the cut you might know from a classic Carl Davis recording – plus "On The Path", "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Life Moves On", "Creation", and "In The Center". You'll Never Know is more fully-formed genius from Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Rodney again plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man".

✨✧ Bobby KeysBobby Keys ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really cool album from saxophonist Bobby Keys – a record with no vocals at all, just Bobby's solos – but a set that's maybe better tagged as instrumental rock than jazz, given the heavyweight guest musicians in the lineup! Keys blows with an all-star array of talent from the rock scene of the time – including Jack Bruce and Felix Pappalardi on bass, Leslie West and Dave Mason on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, and Ringo Starr on drums – plus a bit more guitar from George Harrison, too! Yet what's great about the record is that all these talents put aside their ego and follow Bobby's lead – in a groove that's maybe a bit southern soul, a bit down-home rock – with some definite currents of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the music. Titles include "Crispy Duck", "Steal From A King", "Bootleg", "Smokefoot", "Altar Rock", "Command Performance", and "Sound & Foam". CD

Essential, New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Definitely not the usual collection of 60s garage rock hits – as the set features some surprisingly well-chosen numbers that not only get way past the obvious, but which also come from a wonderfully diverse array of sources! The music is both instrumental and vocal – and there's a number of titles here that come from talents who would later break big in the 70s, in a variety of fields – but who are working here in the farther reaches of the indie underground! CD features 20 tracks in all – and titles include "How Long" by Mickey Whigams, "This Song Is A Present" by Winds, "Pain" by Flood, "Mustang" by Pace-Setters, "You Don't Remember" by Twentieth Century Zoo, "Cafe Bohemian" by The Enchanters, "Masterpiece" by Irish Coffee, "Syracuse" by Felix Cavaliere & The Escorts, "The Little Martian" by Jan Amber, "Goin 88" by Grand Prix, "Bad News" by Johnny Winter, "Burning Love" by Farley Parkenfarker, "After Six" by Crazy People, "Beware" by Opus, and "Fugitive" by The Fugitives.

Step on over to AOR City, and discover some great music you might have missed otherwise – in this fantastic 3CD collection of AOR gems from the 70s and 80s – one that mixes familiar tunes with some real overlooked gems! The collection was put together in conjunction with the fantastic AOR City series of reissues – and features key tracks from those titles and other smooth, sublime pop cuts from the same 70s stretch – the kind of work that might have hit the radio at the time, but which often got lost to the shifting sands of time. Some artists are ones you might know from other work in rock and soul – others are artists who only got a brief chance to reach for the brass ring – getting strong studio help and top-level production that makes them fit right in with the hits here. 57 tracks in all – including "Angel Heart" by Jimmy Webb, "So So Happy" by Valerie Carter, "Personally" by Karla Bonoff, "Nothin You Can Do About It" by Airplay, "I Go Crazy" by Paul Davis, "Only A Lonely Heart Sees" by Felix Cavaliere, "On & On" by Stephen Bishop, "Stephanie" by John Valenti, "I Need You" by Maurice White, "Nightwalker" by Gino Vanelli, "Waiting For A Star To Fall" by Boy Meets Girl, "Don't Talk" by Larry Lee, "Hearts On Fire" by Randy Meisner, "Seeing You" by Jimmy Messina, "Casablanca" by Dane Donohue, "Lazy Nina" by Greg Phillinganes, "Wait For Me" by Hall & Oates, "Next To You" by Dan Siegel with Kenny Rankin, "What Good Is Love" by Bill Champlin, "Runnin & Hidin" by Fools Gold, "You Are" by Niteflyte, "Lovin & Losin You" by Dwayne Ford, "Eldorado Escape" by Far Cry, and "Song For A Sucker Like You" by Ben Sidran.

Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Early 80s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing electro from the early 80s – a host of rare and wonderful tracks that even surpasses the greatness of the first Minimal Wave Tapes compilation! The set's awash in great keyboards, spare drum parts, and brooding basslines – all with a spare, stark quality that recalls the best moments of the Sheffield and Manchester scenes – with a dose of Italian Cosmic and German new wave thrown in as well! Most of the tunes here are totally new to us – and that's saying a lot, because back in the day, we were heavily into sounds like this – which means our hat's off to compilers Peanut Butter Wolf and Veronica Vasicka for doing such a great job with the collection – unearthing this secret history of electronica that bubbled in the global underground of the post-punk, post-disco years. Tracks include "Fire" by Ruins, "Cinnamon Air" by Antonym, "HSTA" by Das Ding, "What Happened To You" by Subject, "The Drum" by Ohama, "The Sleep Room" by Geneva Jacuzzi, "Japan Japan" by Felix Kubin, "Out Of Line" by Class Info, and "Dirty" by Hard Corps.

Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It's no secret that LA was one of the hippest musical cities in the US after World War Two – a real hotbed of early R&B, served up with a sound that few other scenes could match! And although many names in the LA scene broke into the big time, this collection features a fair bit of lesser-known material – all taken from the rich vaults of Modern Records, and including 14 previously unissued numbers! The sound quality is great – way better than a pile of scratchy old 78s – and as with most Ace productions of this type, the already-wonderful music is supported by an array of detailed notes and great photos – all to really unlock the richness of this great moment in music. Titles include "Ride Ride Ride" by Herb Fisher, "Drop A Nickel In The Slot" by Three Bits Of Rhythm, "Bully Wully Boogie" by Hadda Brooks, "Laziest Gal In Town" by Helen Humes, "Play Fair" by Howard McGhee, "Baby Face" by Butch Stone, "Full House" by Felix Gross, "Mean Ole Gal" by Johnny Otis, "Stop Skip Four Beats" by Jim Wynn, "Huggin The Pillow" by Will Rowland, and "B Splat" by Happy Johnson Sextette.

Dancefloor jams, post disco soul, early NYC hip hop beats and straight up amazing 80s NYC progressive club genius from Arthur Russell – a compilation of great tracks he performed on, authored, remixed, edited or produced for Sleeping Bag in the early-to-mid 80s! Includes underground classics from Bonzo Goes To Washington, Dinosaur L, Felix, Indian Ocean and more – all touched in some way by Arthur Russell, with artists in the sessions from Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads and Bootsy Collins in Bonzo, to a collaboration with producer Nicky Siano in the tracks by Felix, and players from the earlier Loose Joints disco sessions. Incredibly important stuff on one hand, and appealingly funky 80s grooves on a more superficial level – and great stuff either way you slice it. Titles include "5 Minutes (B-B-B mix)" by Bonzo Goes To Washington, "Tiger Stripes" and "You Can't Hold Me Down" (extended mixes) by Felix, "Chill Pill (Underwater mix)" by Sounds Of JHS 126 Brooklyn, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "Go Bang!

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaUp From The Roots ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really surprising turn in the career of Mongo Santamaria – especially after a run of successful mainstream Latin sides for Columbia and Atlantic! The album's definitely "up from the roots", and features Mongo in a percussion-heavy exploration of older Afro-Cuban rhythms – served up here in really traditional modes, with a much more folksy sound than any of his other work for the time. Most instrumentation on side one is from percussion – but as the record goes on, the "history" of Latin music begins to seep in – with some great jazz lines from players who include Felix Watkins on flute, Carter Jefferson on tenor and soprano saxes, and Jon Faddis on trumpet – plus a bit of keyboards from Eddie Martinez. Neal Creque, Eddy Martinez, and Marty Sheller all help out on arrangement as the sound builds through the set – so by the end the record is nice and funky, and filled with plenty of soul! Titles include "Little Angel", "Sofrito", "Forked Tongue", "Jose Outside", "Para Ti", and "Conga, Bata, y Chequere". LP, Vinyl record album
