Clifford Brown & Max RoachBrown & Roach Incorporated ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Fair ... $9.99
Quite possibly THE key example of the magic of Clifford Brown and Max Roach on record – a brilliant studio session that really has the group "incorporating" their sound – forging a bold musical statement that would forever leave its imprint on jazz for years to come! The format here shows Brown and Roach as a key force in 50s hardbop – extending Max's bop idiom of years back, and using Clifford's more lyrical approach to solo work to expand the tone, color, and spirit of their music – linking styles and worlds wonderfully, and forging a sound that's tight, yet also beautifully spontaneous and personal. The rest of the group includes Harold Land on tenor, Richie Powell on piano, and George Morrow on bass – and titles include "Sweet Clifford", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Stompin At The Savoy", "I'll String Along With You", "Mildama", "Darn That Dream", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE: FAIR CONDITION. Blue label drummer logo pressing with deep groove. Cover has moderate wear with red electrical tape over all seams. Vinyl plays with numerous clicks & crackles.)

✨✧ Franklin ThompsonPlanet Jumper EP ... LP
Stones Throw, Early 80s. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s batch of old school hip hop & cosmic electro funk from the Omaha scene's Franklin Thompson – resurrected for the oughties by Stones Throw! Franklin concocts a unique stew with influences ranging from George & Bootsy, to the earliest hip hop & astral electro – with that gloriously thumping low fi Drumulator groove that can rock the party or sound like backing music for the latest adventures of Axel Foley with equal aplomb! He also brings a flighty lyrical sensibly that's in a realm of his own – and bills himself as the originator of an alternative social and inspirational message billed as the "Selah Sound" – check this cat out now! Titles include "Planet Jumper", "Dinosaur", "Mega Mix", "My Money's Kinda Funny", "Ghost Dance" and Enemies Within Us". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou DonaldsonGood Gracious! (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A cool cooker from the great Lou Donaldson – and a record that's ever bit as tasty as its cover! Lou's really hitting his soul jazz stride here – stepping off his 50s bop years, and moving into a more gutbuckety groove that's delivered with wonderful accompaniment from a quartet that features Grant Green on guitar, John Patton on Hammond, and Ben Dixon on drums! The style is loose and open – and tracks are long, with tight solos, especially from Patton and Green, always a winning combination – really stepping out here with an early raw fury! Titles include "Caracas", "Bad John", "Holy Ghost", and "Good Gracious!". Nice cover, too, with a photo of Lou checking out a sexy model, while speaking the title! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDetroit Jazz City ... CD
Blue Note, 1960s/2015. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
A really beautiful project from Blue Note – a special record that features new material from the reborn Detroit jazz scene, mixed with older gems from the Blue Note catalog by key musicians who came to the label from the Motor City! The new work here is more than worth the price of the record – more than half the record, played by a number of different artists who turn out some of the most soulful, solid work on the label in the past few years – so much so, we'd love to see some of these tracks expanded into bigger album projects on their own! The new titles all seem to share a link in bassist Marion Hayden, who appears on all of them – and new titles include "The Uncrowned King" by Marion Hayden, "Lottie The Body's Mood" by Marcus Belgrave, "Many Blessings" by James Carter, "Ghost Dancers" by A Spencer Barefield, and "Sheila's Blues" by Sheila Jordan. Classics include "Reza" by Elvin Jones, "Mode For Joe" by Joe Henderson, "You" by Kenny Cox, and "French Spice" by Donald Byrd – and all proceeds for the record go to charity. But, the whole thing's great enough, you don't even have to consider buying it as a charitable act! CD

✨✧ Sidney BechetBechet Souvenirs (with On Parade & Ambiance Bechet) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (France), 1951/1952. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the purest work to ever capture the genius of Sidney Bechet were his recordings in Paris – where the respectful record labels allowed the reedman just the right sort of space for his amazing tone and heartfelt emotion! These sides are a bit late in Bechet's career, but really represent him perfecting his approach, too – never overdone, never gimmicky, and not even trying for any easy cliches that might please the overseas audiences – and instead just right on the money, with a perfect sense of economy in his solos, and a mindblowing tone that will grab you from the very first note on the album! Bechet blows soprano sax throughout – with a tone that was a huge influence on the Coltrane generation – and works with French musicians on all sessions – the first of which features a group led by clarinetist Andre Reweliotty, one more date with clarinetist Claude Luter, and the last a set of "all stars" that includes Guy Longnon on trumpet. CD features 24 tracks in all – material from three different 10" LP releases – with tracks that include "Apex Blues", "Darling Nelly Gray", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Le Marchand De Poissons", "Pattes De Mouche", "Ghost Of The Blues", "Blues", "Girl's Dance", "Because Of You", and his classic "Petite Fleur".

✨✧ Wallace RoneyHome ... CD
High Note, 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work from trumpeter Wallace Roney – the kind of dark-toned music we first started loving in his early years! And in a way, the record's got the same soulful depth as Roney's initial sessions for Muse – a simple blend of instrumentation, but one that sparkles with a fresh feeling that's all its own – thanks to that strong ear for textures and soundshapes that have always made Wallace's trumpet unique! Antoine Roney is also at the helm on soprano and tenor sax – and in addition to keyboards from Aruan Ortiz, the set also features guest organ from Doug Carn on one track. Titles include "Pacific Express", "Dawn", "Plaza Real", "Utopia", "Home", and "Ghost Of Yesterday". CD

✨✧ Jackie McLeanOne Step Beyond (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing album – simply groundbreaking, and a key turn for Jackie McLean! The record features a group of hip young players – including a very young Tony Williams, plus Grachan Moncur III, Bobby Hutcherson, and Eddie Kahn – all playing in a spare contemplative modernist mode that would soon become known as "new thing" jazz. The four tracks on the album – "Frankenstein", "Ghost Town", "Blue Rondo", and "Saturday & Sunday" – are extremely stark, and even Hutcherson's often-warm vibes sound harsh and metallic, especially next to McLean's razor-sharp tone. The record's a real treasure – and never too out to be unenjoyable by fans of McLean's more inside work. Extremely compelling – and we sure wish they were making them like this again!

✨✧ PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi)Marconi Bakery 1973/1974 (Photos Of Ghosts/L'Isola Di Niente/World Became The World/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
(Italy), 1973/1974. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible triple-header of Italian prog – three important albums from Premiata Forneria Marconi – packaged together in a single book-like set, with added notes and photos – plus bonus tracks too! Photos Of Ghosts is a record that got huge circulation at a worldwide level – maybe making PFM one of the most-exposed groups of the legendary Italian scene in the early 70s – a wave of groups that took strong inspiration from the sounds of Yes, Genesis, and other UK acts – but really pushed the music with their own sense of creativity! The cuts on the album aren't just jamming rock – but really show a more expansive view, as long instrumental passages almost seem to draw from jazz or soundtrack complexity – with especially nice guitar, flute, violin, and keyboard lines – and vocals come in at just the right moments to send things home. Titles include "Mr 9 Til 5", "Old Rain", "Celebration", "River Of Life", and "Photos Of Ghosts". Next is L'Isola Di Diente – classic work from PFM – one of those groups that could be complex and compelling, yet never get too lost down all the many pathways they opened in their music! The album's got a blend of instrumental dynamics to match the very best of the British prog acts of the time – in a way that maybe leapfrogs the rest of the European scene for its sharpness, and the way it can balance out instrumental solos with just the right amount of vocals. Titles include "Is My Face On Straight", "Via Lumiere", "Dolcissima Maria", and "La Luna Nuova". World Became The World is a record that has an evocative title and cover – and an evocative sound to match – that heavenly version of prog that made PFM one of the few groups who could both be jamming and sensitive at the same time – often within the space of a single song on the record! The group's in their classic lineup here – awash in flute, guitar, violin, and keyboards – on songs that include a number of songs with help from Peter Sinfield – who maybe adds in some of the gentle lyricism he brought to his work with King Crimson. Titles include "The Mountain", "Have Your Cake & Beat It", "Just Look Away", "Four Holes In The Ground", and "Is My Face On Straight". 3CD set features 7 bonus live tracks too – including a great version of "21st Century Schizoid Man".

✨✧ Vampires Sound Incorporation (Manfred Huebler & SiPsychedelic Dance Party ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Not a real set of vampires working together to make music – but instead a mad studio collaboration from groovy German funkmeisters Manfred Huebler & Sigi Schwab – and one of the albums that formed the musical blueprint for the famous Vampyros Lesbos films from Jess Franco! This set's a very cool concept album – issued by Mercury at the end of the 60s in Germany, and immediately lost to the shifting sands of time – but with a vibe that easily rivals both the best sound library funk albums of the period, and some of the most unique German experiments to combine funk and psych! Given Huebler and Schwab's contemporary work on a lot of those projects they're perfect for the record – which mixes funky drums with Sigi's tripped-out guitars, Manfred's keyboards, and lots of other great work on electric sitar, Hammond, flutes, and lots of weird percussion. There's some cool voices that kind of drift in and out of the mix, at an abstracted level – but the whole thing's really an instrumental outing – and titles include "The Lions & The Cucumbers", "Ghosts Or Good & Bad Onions", "Drug CX9", "Psycho Contact (parts 1 to 5)", "The Message", and "Countdown To Nowhere". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000! Includes booklet of notes, and movie poster too.)

✨✧ VariousWaxing The Gospel – Mass Evangelism & The Phonograph 1890 to 1900 (3CD set & hardcover book) ... CD
Archeophone, Early 1900s. New Copy 3CD & book ... Out Of Stock
Ghostly sounds from the earliest days of the 78rpm recording – a time when American evangelism was on the rise, and the new sonic format turned out to have as much social power as the flaming sword of the Lord! The music here was all recorded in the 1890s – some under studio guidance by evangelists Dwight Moody and Ira Sankey, some out in the field, and still others on newly-discovered wax cylinders that provide an especially amazing look at this unique moment. The package is a heavy book that's worth the price alone – almost 400 pages, and filled with notes, historical writings, details on the records, and lots of images too – and the 3CDs feature a total of 102 tracks, divided up into "Commercial Recordings", "Celebrity Recordings", and "Vernacular Recordings". And this is a very different side of sounds than those presented on some other collections of this nature – which often focus on African-American gospel of a few decades later – and the sounds themselves definitely show the passage of time – never cleaned up too much, so that there's almost a dream-like presentation of the material!

Rahsaan Roland KirkPrepare Thyself To Deal With A Miracle ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, and it's got a wonderful mix of inside and outside playing – a bit more Kirk-unleased overall than some of the more focused experiments of previous records – filled with lots of personality, incredible reed work, and a sound that's spiritual, yet also deeply individual too! Rahsaan plays flute, notes flute, black mystery pipes, E flat sax, and clarinet – and other musicians include Charles McGhee on trumpet, Dick Griffin on trombone, Ron Burton on piano, and Sonny Brown and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – plus a hip string ensemble on some cuts – definitely giving the album a touch of the "Black Classical Music" style that Kirk always claimed was at the root of his work. Side two features the extended "Saxophone Concerto", which has some cool breathing tricks that really let Roland wail – and other tracks include "Celestial Bliss", "One Mind Winter/Summer", and "Ninth Ghost", all of which have a nice dose of spirituality.

VariousFlip Hits! Flip Misses! ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Lost R&B work from the LA-based Flip Records label – not as big of a name as some of its contemporaries, but still a strong force on the west coast scene! Flip is noteworthy in the styles of music forged at the label – modes that grew out of indie 50s R&B, but which prefaced later 60s styles that include girl group, deep soul, and even a bit of garage rock and pop. The CD brings together material from the 2 rare Flip albums 12 Flip Hits and Original Recordings By The Artists – plus an additional batch of "Flip misses" that are lesser-known tunes, but equally great. Work here includes the sweet female harmonies, harder group soul, R&B, and even some choice instrumental numbers – a total of 30 tracks that include "Casual Look", "Teenage Promise", and "Why Do I Go To School" by The Six Teens; "Have Love Will Travel" and "Take The Key" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs; "Do Not Forget" and "Since You've Been Gone" by The Dreamers; "Death Of An Angel" and "Stay With Me Always" by Donald Woods; "Beginning Of Our Love" and "Shame On You" by Rosalle & Donnell; "Ghost Town" and "Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna" by Ray Johnson Combo; "Teenage Bounce" by Sherman Williams; "Uncle Sam's Man" by The Elgins; and "Bye Bye Baby" by Shank & Maydiea.

✨✧ VariousClose To The Noise Floor – Formative UK Electronica 1975 to 1984 (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Cold wave completists, eat your heart out – because this incredible 4CD set is overflowing with early analogue electronic gems from the UK scene – served up in a really beautiful book-style package that's overflowing with notes to support the superb selection of tracks! The music here is definitely on the colder side of the spectrum – that initial impulse on the UK scene to rework some of the German electronics of the period with leaner modes, and take them into even more inventive territory during the post-punk years – before things got too commercial in UK pop, or too overburdened with industrial posturing! The music here is from those great early years of labels like Cherry Red, Rough Trade, and other key UK indies – and the package features 60 titles that include "Fractured Smile" by Inter City Static, "RAM" by The Klingons, "Computer Bank" by Five Times Of Dust, "Holiday Camp" by Blancmange, "I Am Your Shadow" by Colin Potter, "Joe Goes To New York" by Adrian Smith, "Sedation" by O Yuki Conjugate, "In The Room" by Third Door On The Left, "Eco Beat" by DC3, "What A Day" by Throbbing Gristle, "Western Vein" by Konstruktivist, "Music To Save The World By" by Alan Burnham, "Kodak Ghosts Run Amok" by Eyeless In Gaza, "New Muzak" by Instant Automatons, "Robot Dance" by Sea Of Wires, "Mzui (extract)" by Gilbert & Lewis, and "Muslin Gauze Muslim Prayer" by Muzlimgauze.
