✨✧ Steve Coleman & Five ElementsDef Trance Beat – Modalities Of Rhythm ... CD
BMG/Ghost Note, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Creative sounds from alto saxophonist Steve Coleman – working here with his Five Elements group, at a time that was one of his most productive! The group have an angular sort of swing – a style that certainly grows out of some more exploratory moments in 80s mainstream jazz, yet which here comes across with a warmer, more acoustic feel overall – never nearly as bogged down by some of the too academic moments that could hold back some of their contemporaries, or even Coleman at some earlier moments. Rhythms are stiff, but still nice and warm – thanks to drums from Gene Lake – and in addition to Steve's alto, the group also features piano from Andy Milne, bass from Reggie Washington, and a bit of tenor from Ravi Coltrane. Titles include "Dogon", "Flint", "Veritable Pedagogy", "The Khu", "Pad That", and "Multiplicity Of Approaches". CD

✨✧ Larry CoryellHeavy Feel ... CD
Wide Hive, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Larry Coryell's lost none of his genius over the years – and this recent session still has the guitar innovator working with all the best styles we first loved in his initial recordings for Vanguard! Larry's got a tone that can be clear and clean one minute on the electric, then filled with this full fuzz that really takes off – never sloppy, but really unique for a jazz musician – and his acoustic work is equally brilliant, with a knowledge of folk, but still very focused on jazz phrasing – balanced out here alongside electric performances in a really great way. Larry's not just rehashing old territory, though – as he works with a fresh group that also includes George Brooks on soprano sax, Matt Montgomery on bass, and Mike Hughes on drums – on titles that include "River Crossing", "Ghost Note", "Polished", "2011 East", "Heavy Feel", and "Foot Path To Oasis".

Jackie McLeanOne Step Beyond (RVG remaster edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $7.99
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! Also includes a bonus alternate of "Saturday & Sunday". CD

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceSoundin' Off (180 gram – 2 x 45rpm LP pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Analogue Productions, 1960. Near Mint- 2LP ... $34.99
A killer quartet session by Brit trumpeter Dizzy Reece, recorded as one of his three American albums for Blue Note during the late 50s! Unlike the other records, which featured larger groups, this album's done with a quartet – which gives Reece a chance to really take over on his solos – blowing with a sense of warm and lyricism that's not heard as strongly on the other records – really getting some great support from a rhythm trio that includes Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Quite different from some of Dizzy's London work of the time – and with tracks that include "A Ghost Of A Chance", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Blue Streak", "Eb Pob", and a nice version of "Yesterdays".

Wallace RoneyHome ... CD
High Note, 2012. Used ... $7.99
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

Erik TruffazSaloua ... CD
Blue Note (France), 2005. Used ... $3.99
An enigmatic chapter in the always-compelling career of trumpeter Erik Truffaz – one that has him bringing in some distinct Mid East influences, in the form of vocalists Nya and Mournir Troudi! The core group's a quartet, with Truffaz playing in his usual moody trumpet style, as well as a bit of melodica – backed by a bit of electronics, guitar, and percussion. The vocalists sing on about half the album's tracks, giving them lyrics of a strongly political nature – and creating a mood that really makes these tunes stand out from the others on the LP. A few of the instrumentals get a bit guitar-heavy for our taste, but the vocal numbers are great – and tracks include "Saloua", "Ines", "Tantrik", "Big Wheel", "Whispering", "Yabous", "Ghost Drummer", and "Et La Vie Continue".

Lou DonaldsonGood Gracious! (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... On June 3, 2015
Hard and heavy organ grooves – of the sort that characterized Lou's early years for Blue Note! The group's a quartet, with Grant Green, John Patton, and Ben Dixon backing Lou in a perfect rendition of his early 60's sound – some of the best soul jazz ever recorded by the label! Tracks are long, with tight solos, especially from Patton and Green, always a winning combination – and 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! CD

Krzysztof KomedaDance Of The Vampires (aka Fearless Vampire Killers) (with bonus CD) ... LP
Series Aphonos, 1967. New Copy ... $11.99 17.99
Vampire hunting never sounded so groovy – thanks to a sublime soundtrack by the legendary Krzysztof Komeda! The feel here is a bit like Komeda's better-known score for Rosemary's Baby – a blend of darker themes and lighter 60s styles – handled in a way that brings together dreamily drifting vocals, moodier atonal passages, and some slight hints of the modern jazz that Komeda was working on with his famous group of the time. Especially nice is the way that the album uses a floating wordless chorus – almost in the Alessandro Alessandroni mode, but spookier overall – like a vocal group of ghosts let loose from a graveyard! As cool as it is haunting – and wonderfully packaged here with notes in English and some great images too. Titles include "Herbert's Song", "Alfred In The Crypt", "Koukol Laughs", "Alfred Behind Sledge", "Sarah In Bath", "Shagal Leaving", and "Vampire Comes". LP, Vinyl record album

Reign GhostReign Ghost (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Allied/Out-Sider (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A record as trippy as the cover – the first-ever record from this underground Canadian combo, and a set that stands head to head with the wildest work from the American underground at the time! The record's got a spooky feel right from the start – as the set begins with these electric freaky elements that set an eerie tone even before the straighter, more lyrical passages come in – such that even when things are tuneful, the feel a bit spooky – which means that the later spooky moments have even more power too. Vocals are by Lynda Squires and Bob Bryden – who often sing together, but not in a harmonic way – and titles include "Curio Shop", "Travels Of Blue Paradox", "Long Day Journey", "Standing Room Only Mr Mars", "Black Ode", and "Gum Wrapper Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Search PartyMontgomery Chapel (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Lion, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Spooky, spiritual psychedelia from The Search Party – and what an organ-drenched, fuzz guitar-laden, distinctive little psych search it is! The Search Party is led by a (then) bonafide reverend by the name of Nick Freund, and the group seeks to make genuinely religious music in the psych idiom, and it's brilliant stuff! Lots of ghostly male and female vocals and a truly spiritual vibe carries it all along, and it's a real joy! Includes "Speak To Me", "Renee Child", "Melayna", "When He Calls", "So Many Things Have Got Me Down", "You And I", "All But This", "Poem By George Hall", "The Decidely Short Epic Of Mr Alvira", and "The News Is You". LP, Vinyl record album

Loud/RCA/Get On Down, 1995. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Chef Raekwon cooks up one of finest hip hop albums in history – a standout moment in the Wu Tang canon and the 90s in general! Given Ghostface's presence throughout, the prime RZA production and other top shelf guests, you could almost call this one a Wu Tang Clan album, if not for Raekwon's incredible leadership behind the mic. Guests include Nas, Method Man, Inspektah Deck and more from the Wu Tang family. An absolute standard-bearer! Titles include "Spot Rusherz", "Can It Be All So Simple", "Knuckleheadz", "Criminology", "Ice Water", "Wisdom Body", and "Wu-Gambinos". This great 2LP remastered 2012 vinyl reissue also includes the bonus "North Star (Jewels)". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – in stories that include "Two Ways To Die", "The Pale Light Of Death", "Walking Dead", "Trip To Terror", "Doom Of The Living Ice", and lots more of that ilk!

BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wild sounds from the early years of rock and roll – a heady brew of guitar-heavy instrumentals, soulful stompers, and more – all pulled from the hinterland of the rare 45 underground! The tunes here go way past familiar oldies – and even past the sorts of sounds that usually show up on surf compilations – because, as he does with funk records, Keb Darge has a great ear for the unusual – the sorts of odd platters that have always show up in his best record digging and DJ gigs – laid out perfectly here in a really overstuffed collection! Keb turns in nice notes on each track – and titles include "Honey Bun" by Larry Donn, "Ghost Train" by The Swanks, "I Don't Wanna Leave" by Deacon & The Rock & Rollers, "Gorilla" by The Shandells, "She's The One That Got It" by Allen Page, "Madness" by Rhythm Rockers, "Woodpecker Rock" by The Braves, "Let's Dance" by The Excels, "Bad Bad Boy" by Bobby Lollar, and "Lobo Jones" by Jackie Gotroe.
