Steve Coleman & Five ElementsDef Trance Beat – Modalities Of Rhythm ... CD
BMG/Ghost Note, 1995. Used ... $8.99
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

Elvis Costello & The RootsWise Up Ghost (deluxe edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 2013. Used ... $2.99
A damn surprise to our ears – a record that shouldn't work well, but which succeeds tremendously – bringing all the best part of Elvis Costello and The Roots into play perfectly – with a sound that's unlike anything either of them have ever done before! Costello has way more bite than on most records of the past few decades – set up perfectly here in these tightly snapping rhythms that echo all the best live bits of The Roots' records, but which work surprisingly well for Elvis' lyrics in the lead. And The Roots get some very cool keyboard work from Costello – including some especially nice Wurlitzer, played with a rootsy, respectful mode that brings in even more soul than their backings have on their own. And although we've loved The Roots since their earliest days in the hip hop underground, the album's also a strong statement of just how far they've come in the pop mainstream – a true testament to the growth of ?uestlove and crew, and their sense of versatility and vision. Titles include "Wise Up Ghost", "Walk Us Uptown", "Sugar Won't Work", "Refuse To Be Saved", "Tripwire", "Wake Me Up", and "Come The Meantimes". Deluxe edition includes three bonus tracks – "My New Haunt", "Can You Hear Me", and "The Puppet Has Cut His Strings". 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".

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 ... $5.99
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 ... Around 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 ... $16.99 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
(Features a bonus CD of the entire album!)

RaekwonOnly Built 4 Cuban Linx (2LP purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Loud/RCA/Get On Down, 1995. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
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

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

VariousLegendary Wild Rockers 2 – A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly & Surf From The 50s & Early 60s – Compiled By Keb Darge & Little Edith ... CD
BBE (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

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!

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieJazz In Paris – Dizzy Gillespie & His Operatic Strings Orchestra ... CD
Universal (France), 1952. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dizzy and strings – a surprisingly great combination! Although it was Charlie Parker who first made famous the modernist "jazz with strings" approach, Dizzy does wonderfully here in the format – working in similar fashion with edgey backing from the "Operatic String Orchestra" in sessions recorded in Paris in the early 50s! The material was originally only issued as a number of separate 78rpm singles, but is brought together here with full notes and a few bonus tracks – making for a wonderful album that documents this really under-represented part of Dizzy's career. The solos are warm, but edgey – blown over the top of backings that shimmer with rich colors, but have a slightly modern bent. Titles include "Fine & Dandy", "Stormy Weather", "The Very Thought Of You", "Jalousie", "Sweet & Lovely", "The Man I Love", and "Ghost Of A Chance". CD

✨✧ Rahsaan Roland KirkPrepare Thyself To Deal With A Miracle ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Reign GhostReign Ghost Featuring Lynda Squires (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Paragon/Out-Sider (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A set that's a bit more tuneful and well-written than the first album by Reign Ghost – but a record that still has all the raw power and spooky feel of that debut! As before, the vocals are by male singer Bob Bryden and female singer Lynda Squires – who each take the lead at times, along with another male member of the band – but who often seem to occupy a different space, both lyrically and spiritually. This contrast gives the record a very weird sort of energy – like Grace Slick trying to break away from Jefferson Airplane, or those weird Velvet Underground moments when Lou Reed and John Cale sing in contrast. Titles include "Pudsy's Parable", "Mother's Got Troubles", "Long Day Journey", "Enola Gay", "Solar Nice", and "Breast Stroke Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great reissue – with a bonus insert of notes, too!)
