GazzaraPlay Me My Song – Gazzara Plays Genesis ... LP
Irma (Italy), 2014. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $13.99
An album we never thought we'd see from Francesco Gazzara – but one that still pleases us a heck of a lot! Gazzara's a name we've trusted for funk and other groovy styles from the Italian scene for almost 20 years now – but here, he moves away from his previous jazzy modes into a completely different instrumental realm – as his ensemble takes on the classic sounds of Genesis from the Peter Gabriel era and beyond! Turns out, Gazzara's a hell of a pianist – and often plays a Bosendorfer grand here, along with his more familiar Fender Rhodes and Hammond – in a group that features two violins, cello, and sax and flute from Dario Cecchini – instrumentation that's often used sparingly, so that Gazzara's keyboards are up front and almost solo throughout. We're huge fans of Genesis from this time – and Gazzara really reminds us of the musicianship that went into their famous recordings – as he takes on titles that include "Watcher Of The Skies", "The Cinema Show", "For Absent Friends", "The Lamia", "Firth Of Fifth", "Duke's Travels", "Blood On The Rooftops", "Seven Stones", "The Knife", and "Mad Man Moon".

Elvin JonesGenesis ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
Elvin Jones rose to fame in the company of one of the greatest saxophone players ever – the mighty John Coltrane – and his post-Coltrane work like this really continues a keen respect for the role of the reeds in jazz – and really does a lot to push it forward as well! There's a compelling edge to the record that's light years from Elvin's work with Coltrane – a completely new sensibility that can be spacious one minute, extremely powerful the next – and quite possibly realized to its fullest potential here, thanks to the mindblowing contributions of Dave Liebman on tenor and soprano sax, Frank Foster on tenor and flute, and Joe Farrell on alto and soprano sax. All three players work together on each track – and all shift reeds throughout the session – opening up majestically with inspiration from Elvin's drums, and some wonderful work from Gene Perla on bass. The sound is beyond easy categorization or simple style – and the record's filled with wonderful titles that include "PP Phoenix", "For All The Other Times", "Three Card Monty", and "Cecilia Is Love".

Soul ChildrenGenesis ... LP
Stax, 1971. Very Good+ ... $34.99
A sublime early album by the Soul Children – proof that they were one of the best southern soul groups ever! Genesis has the group grooving in a raw Memphis sound, similar to their earlier recordings – but with a bit more sophistication and care on the vocals than before, reaching for a tighter, more modern sound than some of their contemporaries, showing the group to already be thinking towards the next level. Titles on the set include "I Want To Be Loved", "Hearsay", "All That Shines Ain't Gold", "I'm Loving You More Everyday", and "All Day Preachin". LP, Vinyl record album

Charisma, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early masterpiece from Genesis – the kind of visionary record that really set them apart from the rest of their generation – an incredible building-up in sound from their previous two albums, and proof that Peter Gabriel's talents were finally getting focused in the right direction! Keyboards cascade heavily – hitting Yes-like proportions, but with more structure, too – as time changes abound, scene changes match the energy of theme-changes – and the whole album falls into place beautifully, but with plenty of surprises along the way. Every song is a compelling little story – from the leadoff "Musical Box", to the spooky "Return Of The Giant Hogweed", and the playful "Harold The Barrel" – with sweeter moments that include "For Absent Friends" and "Harlequin" – just hinting at the crossover ballad style the group would embrace later, but without any of the cloying commerciality at all.

✨✧ GodsGenesis (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1968. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous debut from this overlooked late 60s group from the UK – a powerhouse that would later go onto fuel bigger groups like Jethro Tull, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and Uriah Heep! This initial outing has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – still very rockish in the presentation, but with a style that's still tipping out of the Brit beat group years too – so that even when things are freewheeling and almost progressive, you can still feel some bluesy undercurrents in the vocals and keyboards! John Glascock handles bass, Ken Kensley keyboards – and both sing as well, along with guitarist Joe Konas. Drummer Lee Kerslake completes the group – and titles include "Radio Show", "Farthing Man", "I Never Knew", "Towards The Skies", "Looking Glass", and "Candles Getting Shorter". 2CD set features the full original mono and stereo mixes of the album – plus bonus tracks that include "Somewhere In The Stree", "Baby's Rich", "Real Love Guaranteed", and a great cover of The Beatles' "Hey Bulldog".

Joao BoscoTiro De Misericordia ... CD
RCA/Kuarup (Brazil), 1977. New Copy ... $21.99
One of a great run of 70s albums from the legendary Joao Bosco – and one of the best of his work with writing partner Aldir Blanc! The style here is jazzy samba, with maybe a slightly rootsier feel than some of Bosco's later work – a quality that keeps things really up-close and warm throughout, with rich feeling on the vocals that go way beyond the boundaries of language – and have us understanding Joao's intent, even though we can't always savvy the words. A few numbers have production that's larger and more modern, but there's still plenty of nice cuts in the classic mode – and ttles include "Falso Brilhante", "Genesis", "Tabelas", and "Plataforma" – plus "Tiro De Misericordia", which has a cool experimental sound.

Sub Rosa (Belgium), 1974/1979/1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
An incredible document of the European scene of the 70s – music that shows just how much criss-crossing there was between improvised music and other avant styles that would break free into other scenes in the post-punk years! The record acts as a snapshot of this under-recorded time – and features four different performances, with heavy input from the London scene – all extended improvisations, with a side each of work by Derek Bailey on solo guitar; the Feminist Improvising Group with Georgie Born, Lindsay Cooper, Maggie Nichols, Sally Potter, and Irene Schweizer; the percussive Logos Ensemble with Max Eastly; and the pre-Throbbing Gristle Coum, with Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti, working with the Logos Ensemble, which also includes Luc Houtkamp! There's not much in the way of notes – but the music speaks volumes by itself. LP, Vinyl record album

Fairport ConventionUnhalfbricking (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Island/Simply Vinyl (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
The record where it all really came together for Fairport Convention – the point at which the already-great group really stepped forward to become something totally unique! By this point all the key elements are firmly in place – sublime vocals from the great Sandy Denny, amazing guitar and songwriting from the young Richard Thompson, and an overall approach to the music that was way more than folk – in the way the elements are layered together carefully, and build in these hypnotic lines that are completely amazing – almost modal in conception, but much more subtle – and the quality that really makes their work so unique. Titles include "Genesis Hall", "Autopsy", "Cajun Woman", "Percy's Song", "Million Dollar Bash", and "Who Knows Where The Time Goes". LP, Vinyl record album

Grunt, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
The mid 70s solo record by Jorma Kaukonen – the legendary guitarist for Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna – and a really great, sort of back to basics acoustic set! In direct contrast to some of the more bombastic rock coming out of the Jefferson Airplane camp in the early 70s, those one has a rootsier psych folk vibe. Holds up well decades later, too – with titles that include "Genesis", "I'll Be All Right", "Song For The North Star", "Anotehr Man Done Gone" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Mad magick a very weird Australian quartet – one who work here in a weird blend of witchcraft and electronics, all at a level that's much more like some of the most tripped out late 60s moog records than you'd guess from the record's 1981 date! The sounds here are really completely out of time – performed by the group on a range of keyboards and synthesizers, and processed with lots of spooky touches – then topped with sung and spoken passages from Geoff Krozier, who comes across somewhere in the territory of Anton La Vey or Genesis P Orridge – a completely haunting style that really sends chills down our spine! Titles include "Temple Of Exotic Delights", "Land Of Unclean Spirits", "House Of The Sun", "Paid Your Money", "Feed You To The Sharks", "House Of The Joker", "Slave Traders", and "The Devil May Care".

Le OrmeFelona & Serona (English version) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/BTF (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
One of the best-remembered albums from this legendary Italian trio – a set that's got all the sweet keyboards and proggish elements of their other records, but which also offers up English language lyrics on this version – which really helped the group get greater global fame! But at some level, the instrumentation is more than enough – really tremendous work on organ, guitar, and drums – served up at a level that, like the rare few groups of this nature, comes across with a sound that's way more htan just the sum of its parts – really cosmic at all the best moments, with an intensity that's never just cockish jamming, but instead focused on really moving things forward at a level that's almost narrative without the lyrics. There's almost as much to love here as on the best early albums by Yes or Genesis – and titles include "Sorona", "Web Of Time", "The Maker", "In Between", "Felona", and "Return To Naught".

✨✧ Morgaua QuartetAtom Heart Mother Is On The Edge ... CD
Denon (Japan), 2014. New Copy ... $26.99
Surprisingly great string quartet versions of songs by King Crimson, Genesis, Pink Floyd, and Yes – played by a group who really get at the spirit of the original versions, while still trying to something very new! We'll be the first to admit that we're usually not the biggest fans of "classic rock meets classical" experiments – nor are we fans of string quartet "tribute" records – but the Morgaua Quartet is something else entirely – four string players who really seem to understand these songs from a drawn-out, progressive melodic perspective – and craft their strings in ways that echo both the vocal passages and instrumental solos, as if they've fully digested the songs all their lives – then let them live freely through their instruments. All tracks are quite long, and really open up with a sound that we didn't expect – and titles include "Red", "Atom Heart Mother", "Peace/Fallen Angel/Epitaph", "Cinema Show/Aisle Of Plenty", "Close To The Edge", and "Triloy".

OsannaLandscape Of Life ... CD
Fonit/Warner (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
Osanna bring in a bit more English to their lyrics than on previous records – but the vibe here is still strongly Italian prog, with all the best elements firmly in place! So many other folks tend to describe this scene by referencing bigger British acts – like Yes or Genesis – but while Osanna may have all the best elements of those groups, including their impeccable musicianship and dynamic sense of sound – they've also got a vibe that's very much their own – a deeper spirit that seems to inform their solos with a very bold, heavens-reaching sound – with qualities that also never keeps them from putting their own opinions in the lyrics, either. These guys are never hiding behind posture – and instead, come across with an earnest, enthusiastic quality that's quite different than some of the more obtuse proggers from other European scenes – and although the album's one of their last, it's also one of their best. Titles include "Two Boys", "Promised Land", "Fog In My Mind", "Landscape Of Life", and "Il Castello Dell'Es". CD

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-StarsJazz Structures ... LP
Philips, 1960. Very Good+ ... $5.99
An unusual albums from the west coast scene of the 50s – recorded under the name of the Lighthouse All Stars, but featuring arrangements and compositions by Bob Cooper – who was the real driving force behind the set. Conte Candoli's in the group on trumpet – and other players include Buddy Colette and Bud Shank on alto and flute, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Victor Feldman on vibes and percussion, Stan Levey on drums, and Cooper himself on tenor. The overall sound is relatively tightly constrained, in a "jazz suite" mode – but there's plenty of room for solo space on the set, and Cooper's writing is as fluid as his ability is strong to bring these players together as conductor. The set's got a really great feel that gets way past some of the more academic west coast work of its sort – with a lot more soul than you'd expect. Titles include "Rain Blues", "Genesis (pt II)", "Architectonics", "Directional Suite", and "The Worker". LP, Vinyl record album

At times, the record builds into a sound that's freer and more challenging than on some of Shorter's other albums from the time – but it does so in more of the "new thing" mode that you'd hear on records from the time by Jackie McLean or Moncur, with an overall sense of purpose that really keeps the message clear. Features all original compositions by the Shorter brothers – and cuts include "Chaos", "Face Of The Deep", "Mephistopheles", and "Genesis". CD

Jewel/Fuel 2000, 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A nice collection of the blusier groovers on Jewel and Paula – from the mid 60s and on through the 70s – with underappreciated gems from stars like Bobby Rush, Fontella Bass, Lightnin' Hopkins and Lowell Fulsom, plus equally strong singles by The Carter Brothers, Peppermint Harris, Brenda George, Wild Child Butler, Jimmy Preacher Ellis, Teddy Taylor and many more! Label founder Stan Lewis's roots are in Shreveport, LA, but the genesis of his Jewel label – and the later Paula and Ronn imprints – are inspired by Chicago's Chess Records empire. So there's more of an amplified Chicago sound on a good deal of the material – with touches of contemporary soul and R&B. Nice! 36 tracks on 2CDs: "Southern Country Boy" by The Carter Brothers, "You Love Me Pretty Baby" by Banny Price, "Homogenized Love" by Jerry McCain, "Move On" by Curtis Griffin, "My Back Scrather" by Frank Frost, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Ray Agee, "Back Door Friend" by Lightnin Hopkins, "Put It All In There" by Wild Child Butler", "True Love" by Al Prince, "Sleeper" by Lowell Fulsom, "Go On And Help Yourself' by Albert Washington, "Food Stamp Blues Pt. 1" by Eddie Lang, "Stoop Down Baby" by Cash McCall, "Home Wrecker" by Fontella Bass and more.

✨✧ Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 1 – Car ... LP
Atco, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! The style here is light years away from the last moments Gabriel was with Genesis – although there's still a few nice touches of the Lamb Lies Down generation, too – and the vocals are more pointed, more focused, and arguably more personal too. Instrumentation holds up better than you might expect – especially as there was no move at all to nod to the nascent punk generation – and titles include the hit "Solsbury Hill", plus "Modern Love", "Slowburn", "Humdrum", "Waiting For The Big One", "Down The Dolce Vita", and "Here Comes The Flood".

Motown/Spectrum (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
The mighty genesis of the Ashford & Simpson team – a collection of early solo sides by Valerie Simpson, recorded for Motown in the early 70s – and all co-written and produced by Nick Ashford! The style here is quite different from the full-on club work of the team in the late 70s – and much more in the sophisticated soul mode of early 70s Motown. There's a righteous quality to many of the best tracks, and also an adult approach to soul that puts Valerie in a context that reminds us a bit of Marlena Shaw, but with a more right-on sound! 20 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", "I Just Wanna Be There", "Back To Nowhere", "Fix It Alright", "Drink The One", "One More Baby One More Child Born", "Could Have Been Sweeter", "Silly Wasn't I", "Genius (parts 1 & 2)", "I Don't Need No Help", and "Now That There's You".

Jawbone (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The story of Bauhaus and beyond – not the pre-war art movement, but the important UK band of the post-punk years – who arguably set the tone for countless black-clad groups to follow! The story's told by David J – founding member of Bauhaus, a great solo artist in his own right, and also part of the Love & Rockets trio – and David spares no detail in his book – starting with the earliest years of the members, up through all their many side projects and reunions. Along the way, you'll read plenty about the UK scene in the 70s, 80s, and 90s – and cross paths with folks like William S Burroughs, Genesis P Orridge, and Alan Moore – the last of whom gives the book a rave review on the back!

✨✧ MF DoomOperation Doomsday (gun-metal colored vinyl with embossed cover) ... LP
Metal Face, 1999. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first full length from MF Doom –setting the standard for underground hip hop to come! On this modern classic, Doom caps off the 90s with more jazzy soul in the beats, and some semblance of straightforward, if busy rhyme mastery from Doom & his guests – taken to the outer limits! What really pushes this one into legendary status are how well he works with creaky comic adventure samples, and it's the genesis of Doom's metal face supervillain personae. Looking back, it's clearly the building blocks for deeper insanity to come, but this one has a sound structure. Probably his best album. Includes "Doomsday", "Rhymes Like Dimes" feat Cucumber Slice, "The Finest" feat Tommy Gun, "Go With The Flow", "Tick Tick", "Hey!", "The Mic", "Dead Bent", "?" feat Kurious and much more – including all of the classic skits (yeah, we said it. . .classic skits, creative sci fi sample genius that are creative as the proper tracks) – with 19 tracks in all.

Roaratorio, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant portrait of the mid 70s NYC improvisation scene by the Music Ensemble – a collective featuring Billy Bang on violin, William Parker on bass, Roger Baird on drums, percussion and flute, Malik Baraka on trumpet and Daniel Carter tenor, alto, flute and percussion! The pieces generally start with a roomy, measured dynamic and grow in intensity, never really getting too intense, and showcasing the intuitive interplay with the players. As Chicago residents, we can really feel the genesis of the later sounds of this city's improv scene, but the style casts a pretty wide net of influence. Baird's archival tapes supplied the material for this CD, and the tracks includes 2 long pieces – the 31+ minute "Stance Dance (Courage)" recorded in April of 1974 at Kingsborough College in Brooklyn with bass by Herb Kahn, and the 18+ minute "Arithmetical Mystic" from a February 1975 date at NYC's Holy Name School Auditorium. The other pieces, "Echoes Wind Transpire" and "Radiatory Fineness", a from the February '75 date. CD

GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith.

Christopher FoxWorks For Piano – Phlip Thomas ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 2014. Used ... $6.99
Bold clusters of sound from pianist Philip Thomas – working here on a series of very inventive compositions by Christopher Fox! Fox has a groundbreaking style that's really striking, right from the first few minutes of the CD – a way of creating almost little stories in sound, driven just by notes from the piano – as they cluster together in shifting ways on the bold "Thermogenesis", seem to keep their distance with a sense of repulsion on "At The Edge Of Time", or move slowly from the low end of the keyboard to the high on "L'Ascenseur"! All three of these pieces are wonderful, and the CD also features the very long, very sprightly "Republican Bagatelles", which is filled with cascades of notes and sound. CD

Firehouse 12, 2008. Used ... $9.99
A sonically riveting sets from Nicole Mitchell and her Black Earth Ensemble – a 9 part suite inspired by and dedicated to Afrofuturist author Octavia Butler – and a ferociously atmospheric one, too! Butler's work in the literary arena is known for an unsettling vibe and the Ensemble composes to suit – with darker edges and jarring moments – filtered through the group's ever deepening explorations in spacey avant garde AACM jazz. Flautist Mitchell composed and arranged it all, and wrote the lyrics – with Mankwe Ndosi's often wordless vocals really carrying the mood, David Boykin on tenor, David Young on trumpet, Tomeka Reid on cello, Justin Dillard on piano, Josh Abrams on bass, Marcus Evans on drums, and Avreeayl Ra on percussion. The sounds range from a loose, hard charging severity to more introverted, spare soul jazz vibe. Exhilarating compositions from a bonafide genius, and a stellar group of players with interstellar range! Titles include "Wonder", "Transition A", "Smell Of Fear", "Sequence Shadows", "Oankali", "Adrenalin", "Transition C", "Before And After" and "Dawn Of A New Life". CD

Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Tenorist Gregory Tardy comes on here with a surprising degree of complexity – a range of expressions on his instrument that run from straightforward, to sharply angular, to dark-toned and sonorous – all in the space of a single session! The sense of individual spirit is stronger than ever with Tardy – as he reaches into so many different areas with his well-developed approach to the music – especially sharp on his own compositions, which make up a good amount of the album here. The group also features well-matched trumpet from Philip Dizack, who seems to shift his mood to match Tardy's – and the rest of the quintet includes John Chin on piano, Sean Conly on bass, and Jaimeo Brown on drums. Titles include "The Law Of Biogenesis", "Lil Patient One", "Ancient Of Days", "Song For Joshua", "The Myth Of Privacy", "The Narrow Door", and "Precious Abby". CD
