✨✧ Gato BarbieriLatino America ... CD
Impulse, Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $18.99
Fantastic 2 CD set compiling the tracks from Gato's first two LPs for Impulse, plus 5 previously unreleased tracks, and full length versions of tracks that were edited on the original albums. In case you don't know this stuff, it's amazing. Gato went down to Argentina to record the stuff, and it's an insane mix of nuevo tango, South American percussion, and Gato's wonderful reed work – which at this point has a hard edge with a lot of soul, and sounds a lot like Pharoah Sanders. Excellent stuff throughout, with a great booklet that tells the full story of the amazing sessions, and which really opens up the music. One of our fave reissues from Impulse! With the tracks "India", "Gato Gato", "To Be Continued", "Encontros", and "Encuentros". CD

✨✧ Anthony BraxtonTrio & Duet ... CD
Sackville (Canada), Mid 70s. Used ... $5.99
Really creative work from Anthony Braxton – a 70s gem that has the reedman working in two different settings – both of them great! The first half of the record reunites Braxton with the electronics of Richard Teitelbaum – working here on some very cool moog, mixed with percussion – all in the best dark sounds of the Time Zones recording from the pair. Leo Smith is also in the group on trumpet – adding in a sense of space that's really wonderful – and Braxton himself works a variety of clarinets with really rich sounds – as the trio takes off on "Composition 36". The rest of the record shows that great old school side of Braxton – that crucial knowledge of the American jazz songbook that he only showed the world this strongly in the mid 70s – and which sparkles here as one of the best examples of that love! The remaining tracks feature Anthony on alto and Dave Holland on bass – working out some really special magic on "The Song Is You", "You Go To My Head", and "Embraceable You". CD

Charlie ByrdBossa Nova Pelos Passaros ... CD
Riverside/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... $2.99
Guitarist Charlie Byrd was one of the first American players to record bossa nova tunes – but although his work with Stan Getz has always been well-documented, some of the titles under his own name can be quite hard to come by. This is one of the best ones that Charlie cut on his own – and it features tight guitar work in a mode that's similar to that used by Baden Powell on his early bossa recordings, augmented by trio rhythms – plus some occasional larger backings by Walter Raim, and some extended group settings that feature Charlie Hampton on alto, Earl Swope on trombone, and Willie Rodriguez on percussion. Tracks include "Ho Ba La La", "Samba Triste", "Yvone", "O Barquinho", "Un Abraco Do Bonfa", and "O Passaro". CD features 6 bonus tracks too! CD

Bill Coleman Bop GroupUK Live – Satin Doll 1967 Vol 1 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1967. Used ... $14.99
A great slice of work from trumpeter Bill Coleman – an American player by birth, but one who became a key part of the French jazz scene in the postwar years – thanks to a big move overseas! Yet the sides here show Bill in an even fresher setting – not just a UK venue, but also working in more of a bop-oriented mode – which is a change from the trad and swing of some of his better-known albums from France! Coleman's trumpet has plenty of charm – a raspy, soulful approach that really makes his swing sessions sparkle – but which turns out to work equally well on some of the more hard-driving tracks here – which, mixed with the gentler lines, almost feel like some great lost 50s Verve album. The set features a lineup of players who include Lou Hooper on tenor, Alan Littlejohn on additional trumpet, Tony Millener on trombone, Ron Matherson on piano, Ron Rubin on bass, and Johnny Richardson on drums – and titles on this first volume include "Spain", "Telegraph", "Sweets", "Three Little Words", and "I'm Growing Fonder Of You/Dream Man".

✨✧ Paquito D'Rivera with Arturo SandovalReunion ... CD
Messidor, 1990. Used ... $4.99
A great set of Latin-tinged jazz – and the first recording that Paquito D'Rivera and Arturo Sandoval had made together in many years! The set's got the angular groove of Paquito's best work of the early 80s – tight Latin jazz, with plenty of percussion at the bottom – played out over longer tracks that allow plenty of space for him and Sandoval to solo, and which also feature piano by Danilo Perez and guitar by Fareed Haque. Titles include "Tanga", "Latin American Suite", "Claudia", "Body & Soul", "Reunion", and "Friday Morning". CD

ExcitementsBreaking The Rule ... CD
Penniman (Spain), 2016. Used ... $9.99
The Excitements are a group who really live up to their name – with a hard-romping approach to soul that kicks in right from the very first note, then keeps on burning strong – thanks to excellent lead vocals from singer Koko Jean Davis! Koko's got this unbridled sound that reminds us a lot of Tina Turner in her early years – a reference that's enforced by a cool photo of Davis in action that's included with the record – and although these guys hail from Spain, they've got a sound that's all-American all the way through – on titles that include "The Mojo Train", "Wild Dog", "Take It Back", "Back To Memphis", "Hold On Together", "Chicken Pickin", and "Everything Is Better Since You've Gone".

✨✧ Dominic FrontiereHang Em High/The Aviator ... CD
MGM/La La Land, 1968/1970/1985. Used ... $14.99
A Dominic Frontiere spectacular – two full soundtracks, and some bonus bits as well! First up is Hang Em High – one of the more famous western soundtracks of the late 60s – a set with a great theme that's well known by many – blended here with some other great spaghetti western elements and a bit more Hollywood drama! The "Hang Em High" theme has some nice twangy guitar touches backed with horns – and it's featured a few times on the album – and other tracks have a sparer, starker sort of dramatic feel, with strings emphasizing the mood in sweeps and swelling passages that are mighty nice. Titles include "Rachel", "Tumbleweed Wagon", "Bordello", and "They Took Me". The Aviator is a mid 80s film that's scored by Frontiere in a mix of modes – some lofty orchestral pieces that are positively airborne in their sound and structure, with a great sense of American pride and drama – and a few more period pieces to set the scene for the 1920s narrative. Titles include "Rabbit Hunt", "The Wolf Pack", "Saw The Fire", "Real Prize", "The Crash", and "The Forest". CD also features two bonus tracks from the film Barquero, too! CD

✨✧ Grateful DeadGrateful Dead ... CD
Warner/Rhino, 1967. Used ... $3.99
The seminal debut of The Grateful Dead – a record that was maybe as important to the American psychedelic scene as the first two albums by Pink Floyd were to the UK! Like those sets, this one almost seems to come out of nowhere – still very much a part of its time, with trippiness and fuzz that other groups were certainly working with – but put together at a level that's very much its own thing, and which is undeniably worthy of all the copycats who paid it tribute in years to come. There's maybe a deeper current of blues roots here than in later years of The Dead – but in the best way possible – and titles include "The Golden Road", "Beat It On Down The Line", "Cold Rain And Snow", "Morning Dew", and "Viola Lee Blues". CD

Mats GustafssonParrot Fish Eye ... CD
Okka Disk, 1995. Used ... $7.99
One of the best accomplishments of the brilliant young Okka Disk label has been to record and document the monsterous talents of the brilliant young Swedish reed player Mats Gustafsson. Gustafsson's poised to become one of the next century's most important reed players, and his style is a near-indescribable mix of hundreds of influences – from 30's "trick" sax players, to Ayler and other American 60's avant players, to Swedish free and bop players, to influences as disparate and haunting as scratchy old 78's or the wind howling through an empty dumpster. This, his first American recording, was done in 1994, with Chicago based musicians Jim O'Rourke, Gene Coleman, and Michael Zerang. Great stuff! CD

Tim MaiaTim Maia (1970) ... CD
Polydor (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $13.99
The incredible first album by Tim Maia – Brazil's greatest soul star in the 70s, and for good reason too – given that Tim was one of the few who could match the depth of American soul and funk at the time! Yet the music here is way more than just a Brazilian version of American soul – as Tim brings in some rootsier elements from local musical styles, and even some of the trippier elements that were running through Brazilian music in the wake of Tropicalia – all to make for this heady brew of sounds that's completely unique, and completely wonderful all the way through! There's plenty of tracks here that would fit well alongside both familiar soul, and the modes of funky artists like Marcos Valle at the time – and the set also features work on guitar and backup vocals by Cassiano, who'd soon go onto become a Brazilian soul star on his own. Titles include the break-heavy "Padre Cicero" and "Voce Fingiu" – plus "Tributo A Booker Pittman", "Cristina No 2", "Jurema", "Flamengo", "Corone Antonio Bento", and "Primavera". CD

Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 45 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

Shunzo OhnoAntares ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1980. Used ... $8.99
A wonderful set from trumpeter Shunzo Ohno – and one that's a lot like some of the warmer fusion sides from Terumasa Hino at the time! Like some of those, this one has Ohno working with backing from a host of American fusion artists – including Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano, Kenny Kirkland on keyboards, and Marcus Miller on bass – plus some especially great work from Robert Aaron on tenor and flute – a soloist who's got just the right sort of approach to match Shunzo's flowing lead! The album's a nice counterpart to some of Ohno's previous albums on the East Wind label – with a similar blend of soul and funky fusion – and titles include "Low East Side", "You First", "Don't Be There", "Remember", "Rum Raisin", and "Antares".

Matana RobertsCoin Coin Chapter Two – Mississippi Moonchild ... CD
Constellation (Canada), 2013. Used ... $6.99
Powerful sounds from reed player Matana Roberts – the second chapter in her ambitious Coin Coin project, and one that's even more moving than the first! Mantana's got strong ties to the avant scenes in Chicago and New York – but works here in this very unusual style that also embraces older spiritual modes and deeper African American tradition as well – with many songs that have their roots in older folk or spiritual numbers, but which get a very inventive reworking by Roberts and the group – even though there's still some vocals in the mix too! The vocals are sung mostly by Jeremiah Abiah – with contributions from Roberts and other group members – in ways that recall a richly expressive tapestry of styles – but which take on a very different flavor amidst the instrumentation. In addition to Matana's own work on alto, the group features Shoko Nagai on piano, Jason Palmer on trumpet, Thomson Kneeland on bass, and Thomas Fujiwara on drums. Titles include "Spares Of The World", "Secret Covens", "For This Is", "Confessor Haste", "Lesson", "Woman Red Racked", and "Invocation". CD

Classic work from the Japanese combo Soul Bossa Trio – one of the first 90s groups to really return to the root of the bossa generation – stepping out here in one of their few releases in the US! There's a very basic groove to the record – and the set's got a slight undercurrent of soul jazz too – at a level that not only makes it one of the best introductions to the group, but also a perfect fit for American release on Ubiquity too! Titles include their great remake of Sivuca's arrangement of "Ain't No Sunshine", plus "Bayu Bayu", "Call Me Mr. Vibes", "Mambo Parisienne", "Poochie", and "A Holiday In South Zone". CD

Jean Thielemans (Toots Thielemans)Man Bites Harmonica ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... $7.99
One of the first American albums from Belgian guitarist and harmonica player Toots Thielemans – a sharp-edged session that brings a new level of jazz into his work! The title's hokey, but the sound is totally great – with Toots on both harmonica and guitar, usually more of the former – alongside a batch of players that includes Pepper Adams on baritone sax, Kenny Drew on piano, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Given these players, there's a nice sense of late 50s tightness to the record – although all players seem to really defer to Toots' intentions, and shape the sound with a flair that's not unlike some of his few great European moments from the decade. Titles include "Fundamental Frequency", "Soul Station", "Struttin With Some Barbeque", and "East of The Sun". CD

Allen ToussaintToussaint – The Real Thing 1970 to 1975 (Toussaint/Life Love & Faith/Southern Nights/bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Raven (Australia), Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of albums from this legendary New Orleans soul singer – all of them great! First up is Toussaint – a seminal album from Allen Toussaint – his first big move as a solo act, and the start of some great fame that would blossom even more strongly in the 70s! This indie effort has a rougher edge than Allen's later albums at Warner Brothers – a sly, wicked slow funk approach that's a real transformation of the older New Orleans groove for a hipper, more contemporary 70s audience. The instrumentation is relatively lean – with lots of nice organ and piano lines alongside slow-stepping and vamping rhythms – and the set was actually recorded in LA, but still has very strong roots in New Orleans! Titles include the classic "From A Whisper To A Scream", plus "Working In A Coal Mine", "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky", "What Is Success", "Either", "Louie", and "Number Nine" – a few of which are hip piano instrumentals! Life, Love, & Faith is a set that may well be his funkiest album ever! The set features 12 tracks from the early 70s – a time when Toussaint was mixing a bit of funk into the heavy soul mix that he'd had from his early days in the Crescent City scene – coming up with a blend that's even darker, and more powerful than all his famous production and projects of the 60s! And while some of Allen's later work tended towards cliche, this record captures him right at that perfect point when all of this was totally fresh – delivered with a razor-sharp edge, and with great instrumental help from New Orleans legends like Leo Nocentelli, Zig Modeliste, and George Porter Jr – all of whom make the album groove harder than most of the other soul albums on Warner at the time. Titles include "Soul Sister", "Victims Of The Darkness", "Am I Expecting Too Much", "Out Of The City", "Goin Down", "Electricity", "Fingers & Toes", and "On Your Way Down". Southern Nights is damn great work from Allen Toussaint – a record that was cut at a time when he'd really made his way into the mainstream of American music, yet could still come across with a hard New Orleans groove! The title cut, "Southern Nights", is a perfect illustration of this fact – as it was written by Toussaint, but became a big hit for Glen Campbell, who recorded a very soppy version of the number. Yet here, Allen turns it into a weird trippy tune – produced with great Sansu production, and backing by New Orleans legends like Leo Nocentelli, George Porter, and Art Neville – all of whom help the tune bristle with new energy, and a really sinister groove. The rest of the record continues in a similar vein – with a spacey LA mellow sound that actually works great for Toussaint's vocals, and gives them a wild flanged-out sound that's pretty amazing – and downright spooky at points! Titles include "Southern Nights", "Basic Lady", "Last Train", "Worldwide", "You Will Not Lose", "When The Party's Over", and "What Do You Want The Girl To Do". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Number Nine" and "Poor Folks". CD

Jazzman/Stones Throw, Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $8.99
Quite possibly one of the greatest funk compilations ever – and we're not just saying that because we're from the Midwest! The genius compilers at Jazzman spent years scouring the smaller cities of the American hinterlands – tracking down obscure musicians, long-lost labels, and nearly-gone master tapes – all to bring together 23 bits of rare funk that bristle with the same energy and excitement as the day they were first recorded! The package is incredible – not only filled with incredible tunes that somehow manage to push the boundaries and redefine our understanding of classic funk from the time, but also doing so in a package that's filled with liner notes that offer more information on the artists than probably their own mothers know! Plus, the set's also got some previously unissued numbers as well – making it a must-have for any funk fan, even if you've somehow managed to track down original copies of some of these choice bits! Titles include "Whip It" by The New Establishment In Soul, "Let's Do It Today (full version)" by The Us, "Pushin To The Top" by Markus Kelly & The Impassions, "Sissy Walk" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Tell Her" by Fred Williams & The Jewels Band, "The Hatch" by The TMGs, "Boots Groove" by The Soul Tornados, "Po Boy's Dream" by Illinois Connection, "It's Not You For Me (live)" by Billy Joe Holloman, "Funky In Here" by Dayton Sidewinders, "Master Groove" by Henry Peters & The Imperials, and "A Day In The Life" by Chocolate Snow.

VariousRio Baile Funk – Favela Booty Beats ... CD
Essay (Germany), 2003. Used ... $6.99
The real sound of Brazilian soul in the 21st Century – the kind of grooves that are going down on soundsystems up in the favelas in Rio, not the hipster bars down at the beaches! There's an unabashed love of American R&B on these tracks – not classic soul from the 70s, or hipster soul from the underground – but mainstream grooves from points south, inspired by Miami bass, crunk, crossover house, mainstream hip hop, and even a bit of dancehall. The CD's a great overview of the music that currently goes under the name of "funk" in Brazilian culture – a sound that's very different than the use of the term by American musicians – and although we've described many of the roots of the music in American terms, there's also some distinctly Brazilian influences that resonate strongly – and which make for the kind of evolutionary sound that happened when Jamaicans first started trying to recreate American R&B, then took things in a whole new direction. Titles include "Mengao 2000" by Furacao 2000, "Cavalo De Pau" by Paty, "Pocotocopo" by MC Serginho, "Tapinha" by MCs Naldinho & Beth, "Planeta Dominado" by SD Boys, "Cerol Na Mao" by Dennis DJ, "O Baile Todo" by Bonde Do Tiagro, and "Mulher Coca Cola" by Ricardo E Esquito.

A mighty roots harmony session! The Abyssinians were one of the first groups at the forefront of reggae to move away from the influence of the American soul scene and forge their own style. This album from the late 70s, a period when a lot of attention was being focused on the island from foreign musical markets, especially British labels like Virgin, is one of their finest efforts, a solid piece of laid back roots vibes, with an insistent, conscious message, and crisp, rolling grooves courtesy Boris Garner, Sly & Robbie, Fully Fullwood, Tommy McCook and many other greats. Includes "This Land Is For Everyone", "Meditation", "Wicked Men", "Dem A Come" and "Let My Days Be Long". CD

A great collection of wonderful gramophone recordings from as early as 1916 up to the first half of the 60s – all from the 78s collection of Frank Fairfield – a folk guitarist profoundly influenced by such amazing old crackling records!

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoAmericans Swinging In Paris – The Pathe Sessions (Les Stances A Sophie/People In Sorrow) ... CD
EMI (France), 1969/1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great CD that features 2 of the Art Ensemble's best French recordings! The first part of the CD features the stunning album Les Stances A Sophie – probably the greatest album ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and also one of their rarest! The group's never been finer – and plays with a creative tightness that you'll be hard pressed to find on other records. Some tracks are almost straight jazz – but there's all these wonderful little breakdowns and burst of creative energy that keep the AACM spirit alive and true. The centerpiece of the album is the massive "Theme De Yoyo", a righteous powerful groover that features vocals by Fontella Bass (wife of Lester Bowie of the group), and which has become an all-time jazz dance classic! Other tracks have a sparer soundtracky feel, and a few more are in the experimental vein of the Art Ensemble's other Paris work at the time. Wonderful overall though – and an incredibly righteous album filled with power and imagination! Titles include "Theme De Celine", "Proverbes", "Theme Libra", and "Variations Sur Un Theme De Monteverdi". People In Sorrow is quite a different record – and features one long track, the title cut, with very spare music, and lots of isolated bass work, horn solos, and percussion – played by the quartet of Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman, Lester Bowie, and Malachi Favors. The track's a nice counterpart to the music on the first part of the disc – long, moody, and almost chillout in nature! CD
