Charles SullivanGenesis (Inner City pressing) ... LP
Inner City, 1974/1976. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A brilliant session from trumpeter Charles Sullivan – a player who's only recorded a handful of dates as a leader, all of them great! This album's got a unique history, in that it was issued both by the Inner City and Strata East labels in the 70s – and overall, it's got a vibe that's right up there with the best Strata East sets of the time – thanks to help from a wonderfully hip lineup that includes Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals, Stanley Cowell on piano, Sonny Fortune on alto sax, and Billy Hart on drums! With a lineup like that, it would be hard to miss – but Sullivan also manages to round the players up into a sound that's really unique, too – very much his own musical vision, with a great balance between sensitive moments, and boldly righteous statements. Other players include L Sharon Freeman on electric piano, Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums – and titles includes the great jammer "Field Holler", plus the tracks "Now I'll Sleep", "Genesis", "Goodbye Sweet John", and "Evening Song".

✨✧ Elvin JonesGenesis ... LP
Blue Note, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Wayne ShorterSecond Genesis (Affinity pressing) ... LP
Affinity (UK), Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insanely wonderful pre-Blue Note session that was recorded by Vee Jay in the early 60's, but was never released at the time. The set features a totally fantastic tight quartet with Art Blakey playing hard hard hard drums, Cedar Walton jamming on piano, and Shorter blowing away in a perfectly magical way on a bunch of great originals. The material's fantastic, the sound is great, and the whole thing's one of Shorter's best albums ever! This was supposed to be Shorter's 3rd album for the label, and who knows, it might have saved them and kept him away from Blue Note if it was released, but such was not the fate of the session – as it only ever came out on vinyl in this mid 70s release on the short-lived Vee Jay International label. Tracks include "Tenderfoot", "The Albatross", and "Ruby & The Pearl". LP, Vinyl record album

AreaAnto/Logicamente ... CD
Cramps (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A classic mix of prog and experimental from Area – one of the coolest Italian bands of the 70s, and one who were very well-placed on the mostly-avant Cramps Records label! The music starts out in territory that's similar to some of the other Italian 70s groups who were inspired by Yes, Genesis, and other British acts – but quickly shifts into more radical sounds, especially in the way that music is mixed with other bursts of sonic activity – creating a blend of tuneful and outside moments that make the whole record compelling all the way through! Titles include "Citazione Da George L Jackson", "L'Abbatimento Dello Zeppelin", "Arbeit Mach Frei", and "Gerontocrazia". CD

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.

✨✧ Jeff ChangCan't Stop Won't Stop – A History Of The Hip-Hop Generation (paperback) ... Book
Ebury Press (UK), 2005. New Copy ... $8.99 19.95
Jeff Chang's epic history of the cultural force of hip hop – one of the most acclaimed hip hop chronicles ever published – and well worth it! Chang has dug deeper for this book than any crate diggin' DJ ever could, and for that he deserves to take a deep bow. The book starts out documenting some of the game's roots in 60s Jamaica, and goes on to chronicle its genesis in the Bronx, and its many incarnations up until the the turn of the century. The cultural, political and social environments and eras in which the art was nurtured is chronicled by Chang without ever causing the reader to suffer from NPR-esque academic dryness (thank God), and really puts the reader into every tale he spins. IT's such a sprawling book that it's tough to recommend or describe in just a few words, but trust us, your library needs it! Paperback, 546 pages including notes, acknowledgments and index, well chosen quotes and photos, plus an introduction by legendary DJ Kool Herc! Book

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

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".

International Anthem, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Ever-adventurous composer, arranger and coronet player Rob Mazurek teams up with similarly creative wanderer Emmett Kelly (Cairo Gang, Josh Abrams Natural Information Society and more)! Alien Flower Sutra finds the duo and their guest players crafting a pretty awesome mix of interstellar psych-jazz-folk with vocals and guitar – with lots of fuzzier, jazzier instrumental passages. Very cool stuff on International Anthem, which has quickly become one of Chicago's best indie labels for free thinking creative output! Mazurek handles the electronic treatments, synths and coronet, with Kelly's lyrics, voice and guitars, and accompanied by Guilherme Granado, Carlos Issam Thomas Rohrer and Brittany Mazurek. Includes "Back To The Ocean, Back To The Sea", "Android Love Cry", "Blackout", "Bright Nights Havoc", "I Untied My Wrists", "Of Time Wasted", "Remember Nothing", "Embryo Genesis", "We Are One" and "Overture Towards The Beginning Of The End Of Time".

Morgaua Quartet21 Seiki No Seishin Ijyosha Tachi (21st Century Non Schizoid Men) ... CD
Denon (Japan), 2012. New Copy ... $28.99
If the cover here reminds you a lot of the cover of the first album by King Crimson, that's no mistake – as the mighty Morgaua Quartet serve up their own versions of tracks from that record, alongside unique instrumental versions of songs by Genesis and Pink Floyd too! As with the group's excellent Atom Heart Mother Is On The Edge record, the style here is hardly the usual "string quartet meets rock" approach – and instead, these guys really dismantle the songs and find a way to build them up again with just the four familiar instruments of a string quartet – in a manner that's surprisingly faithful to both the vocal and instrumental structure of the originals, but without ever forcing things in a gimmicky way. In addition to their own takes on "21st Century Schizoid Man" and "In The Court Of The Crimson King", the group also perform "Starless", "Money", "Set The Control For The Heart Of The Sun", "Dancing With The Moonlight Knight", "Master Of Puppets", and "And You & I/Cord Of Life Eclipse".

✨✧ 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".

Music EnsembleMusic Ensemble ... CD
Roaratorio, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $7.99
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

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

✨✧ Throbbing Gristle20 Jazz Funk Greats ... LP
Industrial (UK), 1979. Near Mint- ... $49.99
The title might seem like a joke – given Throbbing Gristle's reputation for intense noise and dark sounds – but at another level, it's actually a great fit for the spirit of the record too! The sound here is a lot leaner than before – almost as if TG is focusing in on the best elements that made their earlier performances so great – exposing a hidden talent for a song, a groove, and even an occasional melody – in ways that almost refine and filter down the whole of German 70s electronics into a spirit of post-punk expression! Subject matter is still pretty darn dark, and vocals are as creepy as ever – thanks Genesis P – but there's also more of the electronics that Chris & Cosey would soon explore on their own. Titles include "20 Jazz Funk Greats", "Beachy Head", "Still Walking", "Tanith", "Convincing People", "Exotica", "Hot On The Hells Of Love", "Persuasion", "Walkabout", "What A Day", and "Six Six Sixties".

✨✧ Throbbing Gristle2nd Annual Report (Mute) ... LP
Industrial/Mute (UK), 1977. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Some of the darkest, most bracing music ever recorded by Throbbing Gristle – and a record that arguably captures the group at their best! The sounds here are virtually the blueprint for industrialism for years to come – loads of low-end sonic rumblings, with instrumentation distorted beyond any sense of recognition – yet used in ways that are often slightly tuneful, kind of sneaking in a sense of song through the back door – that odd combination that always made TG stand way ahead of most of their contemporary imitators! Genesis P is incredibly chilling, and the analogue electronics are breathtaking – and titles include the classic "Slug Bait", in a few different live iterations – plus "Maggot Death", "Industrial Introduction", and the soundtrack of the Coum film "After Cease To Exist". Still one of the all-time chilling classics! LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio Morricone & Gino Marinuzzi JrMatchless ... CD
CMT/Legend (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... On May 20, 2016 (delayed)
Really lovely work from Ennio Morricone – one of his more obscure movie soundtracks, but a set that sparkles with the energy of his best classics from the late 60s! There's a wonderfully subtle approach at times – the genesis of that style that set Morricone apart from so many of his contemporaries – and one of the key elements is electric bass, used sparely, but really turned up in the mix – so that each pluck of the strings resonates with this deep quality that colors each new tune – whether sweet or sinister! A few numbers hit a bit of a mod pitch, and some are composed by Gino Marinuzzi – and I Cantori Moderni make a bit of a vocal appearance on the record too. Titles include "Ho Paura", "La Danza Delle Trombe", "Un Sogno Ricorrente", "Una Dolce Corsa", "Suspense", "Marcetta Divertente", and "Titoli Di Coda". CD

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.

An excellent set of some fairly out material – performed by Shorter with a group that includes Freddie Hubbard, Grachan Moncur, James Spaulding, Herbie Hancock, and a rare appearance by his brother Alan on flugelhorn! 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". LP, Vinyl record album

The players here are all super-hip – showing that key Tyner ear for picking sidemen – and the lineup includes Virgil Jones and Kamau Adilfu on trumpets, Steve Turre on trombone, Joe Ford and Doug Harris on alto and flute, Ricky Ford and Junior Cook on tenors, and Louis Hayes on drums – all moving with tight formation, over the sort of soaring Tyner numbers that always win our heart!

Atco, 1977. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
