Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... On May 19, 2017 (delayed)
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, consise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Caroline CrawfordMy Name Is Caroline (LP-styled jacket) ... CD
Mercury/P&C, 1978. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A killer soul set from Caroline Crawford – with production, arrangements, and songwriting by Hamilton Bohannon – soaring, beautiful, uniquely soulful sounds from the late 70s! Crawford's got a hell of a voice – equally well-suited to deeper soul ballads and uptempo groovers – and with Bohannon on board, there's plenty of groovers – although we like the mellow cuts just as much! Crawford was sort of Bohannon's big vocal discovery, and the Mercury efforts were a good use of his instrumental sound in a vocal driven framework – one that succeeds not just on the clubby soul level of his own records, but which also hits a more emotional tone than a lot of the dancefloor soul of the era. Johnny Allen contributed the string orchestrations – and titles include "Riding On Your Love", "Tell Me You'll Wait", "Coming On Strong", "It Rains Because" and "Caroline Breakdown". CD

CureSeventeen Seconds (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fiction/Elektra, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A haunting and relatively spare early one by The Cure that holds up incredibly well – standing true to the test of time as strongly as anything in their canon! From the perspective of fans who got into The Cure anytime from the mid 80s onward, these earlier efforts might initially sound like a moody framework for the more grandly produced records to come, give it a couple listens, because the minimal structure is incredibly strong! It's just their second album, but the eerily melodic Robert Smith vocals, his just as distinctive guitars, and then new bass player Simon Gallup's sound have The Cure mood in full semi-gloomy, yet wholly beautiful bloom! Includes the great title track, "A Reflection", "Play For Today", "Secrets", "In Your House", "Three", "The Final Sound", "A Forest", "M" and "At Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl – and remastered by Robert Smith!)

✨✧ Terry GibbsHootenanny My Way ... CD
Time/Solid (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $16.99
A hip hootenanny from vibist Terry Gibbs – hardly the folksy set you might guess from the title, and instead a lively batch of small combo tunes that grooves better than most of Gibbs' work from the 60s! Most tracks are of traditional origin – folk tunes, if you will – but the jazz inflections of the group quickly takes them bast their roots, using the core melodies mostly as a framework for improvisation – featuring great vibes from Gibbs, plus tenor and flute from Al Epstein, guitar from Jimmy Raney, and piano from Alicir McLeod. Terry's vibes are nice and bold, and titles include "Michael", "Joshua", "John Henry", "Greensleeves", "Tom Dooley", and "Sam Hall". CD

✨✧ GorillazHumanz (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Parlophone, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 20.98
A triumphant return for The Gorillaz – as improbably (impossibly!?) brilliant as ever! Much like the real life post-millennium culture we all inhabit, The Gorillaz exist in a world both virtual and physical – with artist and conceptualist Jamie Hewlett, singer/guiding force Damon Albarn, producer Twilite Tone and others providing a mood and aesthetic framework for an amazing roster of guest singers, rhymers and musicians on this one, who all really contribute a lot – especially to the lyricism and writing. Given the stylistically sprawling guests – both prominently billed and even more further behind the scenes – it's really impressive how well it holds together so cohesively from beginning-to-end. Way more than a cartoony supergroup, but you knew that already! Guests include Peven Everett, Mavis Staples, Danny Brown, Grace Jones, De La Soul and more, with an overall vibe Titles include "Ascension" with Vince Staples, "Strobelight" with Chicago indie soul legend in-the-making Peven Everett (and honestly one of the standout tracks, we're not just saying that out of hometown pride), "Momentz" with De La Soul, "Carnival" with Anthony Hamilton, "Let Me Out" with Mavis Staples & Pusha T, "Charger" with Grace Jones, "Submission" with Danny Brown & Keleta, "We Got The Power (Version 2:18:482) with Jehnny Beth (of Savages) and many more. 2CD deluxe edition includes a bonus CD with extra tracks – including "Halfway To A Halfway House" with Peven Everett, "Ticker Tape" with Carly Simon (!!!) & Kali Uchis and more.

✨✧ Jeremy PeltTalented Mr Pelt ... CD
High Note, 2011. Used ... $5.99
A sharp set from trumpet player Jeremy Pelt on High Note – backed by JD Allen on tenor sax, Danny Grissett on piano, Dwayne Burno on bass and Gerald Cleaver on drums – the same group that played in the equally great Men Of Honor set. It's great mix of exciting solos within solid, soulfully inclined framework. We love it when modern players express themselves creatively and show such dexterous ability in way that's both indebted to and honorable of the 60s post bop and early soul jazz forbears. Nice stuff! Includes Pelt's own "Pandora's Box", "All My Thoughts Are Of You", "When The Time Is Right", "Only" and "David And Goliath" – plus "Paradise Lost", "In Love Again" and Mal Waldron's "Pulse". CD

✨✧ Roxy MusicCountry Life (180 gram limited pressing) ... LP
EG/Virgin, 1974. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly their best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "ThreeAnd Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition Capitol Vaults 180 gram pressing.)

Denny ZeitlinEarly Wayne – Explorations Of Classic Wayne Shorter Compositions ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
A sweet solo piano set by Denny Zeitlin – paying tribute to jazz sax legend Wayne Shorter! Zeitlin has performed Shorter compositions before, but the Early Wayne session is still a pretty wonderful surprise overall. Zeitlin is such a distinct, remarkable composer and player himself, he deftly pulls of the dual tasks of delivering a full on tribute set, but he's also able to use the ageless early Shorter tunes as a framework for some subtle improvisation of his own. Beautifully recorded at the Piedmont Piano Company in Oakland. Includes "Speak No Evil", "Nefertiti", "Ju Ju", "Teru", "Toy Tune", "Infant Eyes", "Paraphernalia", "Ana Maria", "ESP" and "Miyako". CD

✨✧ Bill FrisellIntercontinentals ... CD
Nonesuch, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
Another expansive effort from Bill Frisell, finding him integrating a variety of new sounds from other traditions into his new American pastoral framework. As with other recent releases, his coloristic tone and melodic sensibility are nicely rooted, but cast here in a new group featuring Brazilian guitarist Vinicius Cantuaria, Greek musician Christos Govetas on other stringed instruments and Malian Sidiki Camara on percussion, plus Greg Leisz who's collaborated with Frisell on a number of other recordings adding some wonderful atmosphere, and violinist Jenny Scheinman. 14 tracks in all, including "Boubacar", "Good Old People", "Baba Drame", "Procissao", "We Are Everywhere" and "Eli".

✨✧ Tania Maria And The Viva Brazil QuartetLive At The Blue Note ... CD
Concord, 2002. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning live set from Tania Maria – recorded with her Viva Brazil combo in a mode that's very similar to her classic recordings from 70s France! The sound here is great – Tania on keyboards and vocals, with backing only from bass, drums, and percussion – a spare framework that allows Tania to groove in a free and breezy way over the album's long tracks. The result is an instant classic – one of Tania's best records in years, and a delight throughout, especially if you dig her older albums! Titles include "Granada", "Quase", "Funky Tamborim", "Florzinha", "E Carnaval", and "Valen". CD
