Roy ThomasBatman – The War Years 1939 to 1945 (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 24.99
A wealth of classic Batman comics from World War II – all brought together by comic historian Roy Thomas, who also provides a nice framework for the project! The Dark Knight is usually associated with action on the streets of Gotham City, but as with most comic book heros during WWII, he turned his talents towards stopping he Axis – both in direct confrontation, and working against spies and saboteurs – in stories served up from the early years of Batman, Detective, and Worlds Finest comics – reprinted here in vivid color and oversized pages too! The book is nice and heavy – almost 300 pages – and even if you're not drawn to the wartime stories, the whole thing's a great presentation of Golden Age tales, with classic art and stories. 298 pages, hardcover, in full color.

✨✧ Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis/Amii StewartKillerfish ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Long before Sharknado hit the small screen, the team of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis served up the groovy score for Killerfish – a great aquatic thriller from the later years of disco, given a very groove-heavy score by the Italian brothers! The leadoff track – "The Winner Takes All" – features English language vocals by disco diva Amii Stewart, who returns on another track as well – and these lyrical moments set a framework for the vivid instrumental numbers, which often have a style that's a bit more laidback in the groove department, but which still uses disco elements like guitar and keyboards mixed with a bit of strings. Titles include "Run Away Man", "Killer Fish", "Margaux", "Flying Into Love", "Welcome To Brasil", "Diamonds", and "Don't Ever Let Me Hear You Say Goodbye". CD
(Limited edition of 500.)

Jan JohanssonJazz Pa Svenska – Swedish Folk Songs (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Megafon/Heptagon (Sweden), Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
A real classic from Swedish pianist Jan Johansson – and a key effort to link the modernism of his nation's postwar years with their rich centuries of cultural traditions! The tunes here are mostly from folk sources, but they're recast by Johansson in a moody modern jazz mode – often handled very sparely, with just bass accompaniment from Georg Riedel – who seems wonderfully suited to the project at hand! The melodies are incredibly evocative – and Johansson's playing is really set free amidst these familiar frameworks – never too outside, but deeply exploratory, and with a surprising depth of feeling. Titles include "Visa Fran Utanmyra", "Emigrantvisa", "Gammal Brollopsmarsch", "Brudmarsch Efter Larshoga Jonke", "Leksands Skanklat", and "Visa Fran Jarna". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Giorgio GasliniGaslini Plays Monk ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The music of Thelonious Monk, but played in ways that are quite different than the original! Italian pianist Giorgio Gaslini's always been his own man in music – and on this compelling set, he really turns some Monk compositions on their ear – using the tunes only as very spare frameworks for his own improvisations, which often take flight on the full reaches of the keyboard of the piano! Some notes are quote bold, others spare and tentative – and Gaslini balances himself beautifully as he attacks these tunes – poised in a space that's all his own, and shaking off any easy Monkish expectations you might have. Titles include "Monk's Mood", "Epistrophy", "Ruby My Dear", "Pannonica", "Let's Cool One", and "Ask Me Now". LP, Vinyl record album
