Evan Parker & Georg GraweUnity Variations ... CD
Okka Disk, 1999. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
A beautiful testament of how much of an impact the Chicago scene of the 90's is having on the worldwide avant jazz world! This set of live duets was recorded during a time when German pianist Georg Grawe had moved to Chicago to take advantage of the city's rich jazz scene – and when Evan Parker was visiting the city to perform in the now-legendary Empty Bottle Jazz & Improvised Music Festival. The CD captures a performance that is only the second time these two greats have played together, and it was recorded in the acoustically beautiful Unity Temple, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Despite their lack of experience together, these two masters dovetail nicely in performance, and the set of "Unity Variations" is another feather in the cap of the great Okka Disk label. Handsomely packaged, too – with a nice cover based around Albert Oehlen's painting "What The Critic Sees". CD

VariousRockin The Groove – When Groove Was More Than Just A Habit ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $15.99 25.99
A massive amount of great groovers from the Groove Records subsidiary of RCA in the 50s – home to a hotbed of R&B, early soul, and other killer cuts from the postwar underground of the 45 rpm single! Nobody's ever dug so deeply into the Groove catalog before – and Bear Family have done a wonderful job of unearthing rare nuggets we've never heard before, and mixing them with other Groove gems that are still mostly on the obscure side of the 50s R&B spectrum – all to make a killer assortment that has plenty of greatness to offer, even if you've already got lots of jump blues and R&B in your collection! The music is as lively as the look of the package – and the booklet features over 60 pages of track by track notes on the selections – 35 titles that include "Charmaine" by Frank Brunson, "Big Foot Mammy" by Paul Williams, "Where Is Joe" by Emmett Hobson, "Doo Ba Dee" by Maymie Watts, "Shake Till I'm Shook" by Beverly Wright, "Love Ya Like Crazy" by Chris Powell & The Blue Flames, "A Little Boy's Dream" by George Benson, "Bye By Baby" by Clayton Love, "Hoodoo" by Roy Gaines, "Right Now" by Zilla Mays, and "My Head Goes Round" by Oscar Black.

✨✧ VariousIf You're Going To The City – A Tribute To Mose Allison (CD & DVD) ... CD
Fat Possum, 2019. New Copy CD & DVD ... $13.99
We're not usually the sorts to dig tribute albums, but the mighty Mose Allison is one of our favorite talents from years back – and the lineup here do a great job of reviving some of the classic spirit of Mose, while also pushing things forward with their own creative reinterpretations of his legacy! If you don't know Allison, he was a jazz pianist first, and a singer second – the latter the quality that brought him great fame, with lots of New Orleans-inflected qualities in his vocals, and lyrics that had a nicely biting mix of contemporary wit and more vintage themes. That legacy has held up wonderfully over the years – and is interpreted here by a host of different artists – a lineup that includes "If You're Going To The City" by Iggy Pop, "Your Mind Is On Vacation" by Taj Mahal, "My Brain" by Robbie Fulks, "If You Life" by Jackson Browne, "Parchman Farm" by Richard Thompson, "Ever Since The World Ended" by Loudon Wainwright III, "Stop This World" by Chrissie Hynde, "Numbers On Paper" by Frank Black, and "Monsters Of The Id" by Amy Allison with Elvis Costello. Includes bonus DVD of the film – Mose Allison Ever Since I Stole The Blues. CD

✨✧ VariousLondon American Label Year By Year – 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sound of America in 1967 – but presented here with a very unusual focus – as all the tracks on the set were issued in the UK by the "American" branch of the London Records label! As such, the work is a very different portrait of US music at the time than you'd hear on a collection from our side of the Atlantic – as London UK grabbed all these unusual, overlooked songs from a variety of labels big and small – and put them out in England for an audience with ears much more tuned towards hipper, more high-quality singles! The music is a mix of soul, rock, country, and other modes – often recorded a few years before the UK issue, but collected together here in a really fresh snapshot of music you might have thought you already knew pretty darn well. As always with Ace Records, the set list is great and the notes offer up a heck of a lot of detail on the music – 28 titles that include "Four Days Of Rain" by The Raggamuffins, "He Ain't Give You None" by Freddie Scott, "My Girl Josephine" by Jerry Jaye, "Humphrey Stomp" by Earl Harrison, "Can You Help Me" by The Knickerbockers, "When You're Gone" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Billy The Kid" by Wilson Pickett & The Falcons, "The Little Black Egg" by The Nightcrawlers, "Eight Men Four Women" by OV Wright, "Huff Puff" by Mickey Dolenz, "Bob" by The Willis Brothers, "Big Boss Man" by Erma Franklin, "Three Hundred & Sixty Five Days" by Donald Height, "Boogaloo Down Broadway" by Fantastic Johnny C, "You're The Love" by The Sixpence, and "Snap Your Fingers" by Gail Wynters.
