Terry TeachoutDuke – A Life Of Duke Ellington (hardcover) ... Book Book
Gotham, 2013. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
Terry Teachout gave us a wonderfully well-done biography of Louis Armstrong – and he follows suit here with an equally great volume on Duke Ellington – one that does an excellent job of balancing between biographical details and an understanding of his music! Teachout doesn't just focus on the oft-covered early years of Duke's music, but also vividly illustrates the changes and complexities of both the sounds and the artist during the postwar years – especially during the last decade or two of Ellington's life, which is some of our favorite work. The hardcover book is almost 500 pages long, and includes a wealth of compelling source information too! Book
(Please Note – spine has a remainder mark.)

New RJ SmithOne – The Life & Music Of James Brown (hardcover) ... Book Book
Gotham, 2012. New Copy Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the deepest book we've ever read on the life and music of James Brown – and certainly one to really get past the monolithic moments, and really serve up the full details of The Godfather at work! There's a surprising amount of research that went into the project – way more than some of those star bios on Brown that were issued years back – and RJ Smith definitely digs James from the same perspective that we do, and really gets at the important forces that helped shape the sound of his music, and its exposure to the world at large! 455 pages, with some black and white images, hardcover. Book

New Cannibal OxBlade Of The Ronin ... CD CD format
Ihiphop, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
Vast Aire and Vordul Mega finally return as Cannibal Ox – and truth be told, it's a pretty damn solid effort, way better than most comeback efforts by early 00s indie heroes. It's been a long time since Cold Vein dominated the indie hip hop scene, and it's good to have them back in action. The Def Jux era is long gone, and rather than patch things up with El-P and try to relive past glories, the Ox wisely just move on – smartly avoiding both current trends, and touching on the chilly sci fi funk vibe of the their past without repeating themselves. Most importantly, they're sharp on the mics, and the titles include Includes "Opposite Of Desolate" fat Double AB, "Psalm 82", Sabertooth" feat Irealz & Bill Cosmiq, "Iron Rose" feat MF Doom, "Vision" faet The Quantum, "Gotham (Ox City)", "Carnivorous" feat Elzhi & Bill Cosmiq, "Water", "Harlem Knights", "The Fire Rises" and more.

Nelson Riddle/Adam West & Burt WardBatman – Original Television Soundtrack ... CD CD format
20th Century/Universal, 1966. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Holy Soundtracks! Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the full flavor of the campy television classic – with loads of the original music from the show – the themes you remember, as you heard them, and not a bunch of watered-down tracks inspired by the show – plus (and this is the best part!), the record has loads of dialogue from the TV show in between the tracks – cool exclamations from Adam West, Burt Ward, and others – which makes listening to the record as fun as watching the show! Titles include "Batman Pows The Penguin", "Batman Riddles The Riddler", "Gotham City", "Batman Thaws Mr Freeze", and "To The Batmobile!" CD

VariousAndy Votel Presents Brazilika – Non Stop Subtropical Psychedelia From The Vaults Of Brazil's Som Livre & RGE ... CD CD format
Far Out (UK), 2008. Used ... $8.99
The hippest installment so far in the Brazilika series – a mad mix of musical styles from Finders Keepers mainman Andy Votel – all in a freaky, funky, fuzzy blend of sounds! The tracks here are much grittier than the work we're used to hearing from the Far Out label – as Votel's dug through the 60s and 70s vaults of RGE/Som Livre Records to come up with rare Brazilian rock, funk, and other heavy styles from back in the day! As with Votel's reissues on Finders Keepers, there's a sound here that's informed by beathead record collecting – a love of older grooves directed by current musical developments – all with a definite ear for the wilder side of the sound spectrum. Most tracks have a pretty heavy groove – and the styles run from psychedelic rock through Tropicalia-inspired tunes, to post-bossa, Bahian sounds, and more. Titles include "Funga Funga" by Trio Soneca, "Careta" by Betinho, "Modulo Lunar" by Os Brazoes, "Terra Livre" by Abilio Manoel, "Os Bichos" by Trio Soneca, "De Vera" by Novos Baianos, "Ciladas" by Pery Ribeiro, "Se Voce Pensa" by Moraes Moreira, "Flores Belas" by Tim Maia, "1974" by Gerson Conrad & Zeze Motta, "Gamboa" by Brazilian Octopus, "Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Agua No Quintal" by Os Mutantes, "Periscopio" by Azimuth, and "Gotham City" by Os Brazoes.

VariousMojo Club Presents Dancefloor Jazz Vol 4 – Light My Fire ... LP LP format
Motor (Germany), 1995. New Copy ... $19.99
The turning point volume in the Mojo Club series – and the volume in which the groove really began to open up into the fantastic mix of styles that's made the series famous! The collection features 14 great tracks that shouldn't sound great together, but they do – a really amazing array of different music from different scenes – put together with a strong sense of panache, and running for much longer than any American compilations of this nature (if there's any that could ever match up!) Titles include "Zazueira" by Elis Regina, "Jimmy Jean" by Ellen McIlwaine, "Pretty Brown Skin" by Edwin Birdsong, "Hold Out Your Hand" by Karin Krog, "Use It Or Lose It" by Gotham, "Try To Relax" by Ballinjack, "Return Of The Prodigal Son" by Joe Lee Wilson, "Balanca Pema" by Ronald Mesquita, "Oba La Vem Ela" by Jorge Ben, "Dyambo" by Hugh Masekela, and "Easin In" by Edwin Starr.

RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Around February 23, 2015 (delayed)
A tripped-out batch of tracks from Brazil! These guys mix together a bit of funk, a bit of psych, and touches of Jorge Ben-like soul – into a blend that's really groovy all the way through, and which will be sure to please any fan of the Samba Soul groove! Jorge Ben's influence is all over the set – filtered through some garagey production that makes the tracks sound rawer than any of Ben's own work, and which give the guitars a nice fuzzed out edge. The whole thing's almost psychedelic at times, but has a fair bit of soul as well – and titles include "Gotham City", "Que Maravilha", "Carolina, Carol Bela", "Modulo Lunar", "Volkswagen Blue", "Feitico", "Espiral", and "Momento B/8".

New Jards MacaleSo Morto – Burning Night ... CD CD format
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crucial set of work from the overlooked Jards Macale – one of the hippest cats in Brazilian music during the 70s, heard here on one of his best early albums! The music here is really at the crossroads – a combination of the folksy edge of the 60s work of Geraldo Vandre, mixed with some of the trippier elements of the generation that would be best represented by Lula Cortes, all set free by some of the rich waves of energy that sprung from Brazil in the wake of the Tropicalia movement! Macale's got a way of really personalizing the tunes with both his vocals and guitar work – and the overall presentation moves from intimate to expansive with effortless ease. Titles include "Sem Essa", "So Morto", "O Crime", and "Solucos". CD also features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 10 more numbers that include "Gotham City", "Let's Play That", "Poema Da Rosa", "Revendo Amigos", "Orora Analfabeta", and "Rua Real Grandeza". CD
