Dave BrubeckBrubeck Desmond ... LP
Fantasy, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Great stuff from the early days of the Brubeck/Desmond alliance – when Dave's piano had first met up with Paul's alto, with incredible results that would soon transform the face of popular jazz. The set's mostly standards – but it does include 2 strong originals, "Crazy Chris" and "Lyons Busy", as well as some Brubeck-ized versions of tunes like "Frenesi", "Mamselle", and "At A Perfume Counter". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep red vinyl pressing, with deep groove!)

Lea DeLariaDouble Standards ... CD
WEA (UK), 2003. Used ... $3.99
The title's an apt one – as Lea takes tunes most often associated with the history of rock, and turns them into jazz tunes with a whole new life! These "double standards" are performed with a laidback and easy-going style that takes them way past the obvious cliches or jokes they could easily become – sensitively arranged by pianist Gil Goldstein, and sung by Lea in a way that not only completely blows away the original interpretations, but which also has us hearing whole new nuances in the lyrics. And yes, the format's been done before – but this is easily one of the best renditions we've ever heard. Includes versions of Neil Young's "Philadelphia", Blondie's "Call Me", The Doors' "People Are Strange", The Pretenders' "Tattooed Love Boys", and Robert Wyatt's "Alliance". CD
(CD case has a cutout hole.)

Stone AllianceStone Alliance (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
PM/Shout (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
An amazing little group – and one of the real standouts in indie jazz during the 70s! Stone Alliance are a killer power trio made up of players who'd previously worked for Elvin Jones – and all three of them have inherited a frenzied sense of rhythm from Jones – and that great sharp edge he brought to his initial early recordings in the post-Coltrane years! But there's also a deeper sound going on here, too – a bit of funk, and definitely a bit of Latin in the percussion and basslines – which makes for these grooves that are as complicated as they are infectious – often given some sweet spiritual tones from the reeds on top! The lineup features Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Gene Perla on bass, and Don Alias on drums and percussion – all working together with tremendous energy, but a great focus too – always soulful, and never too jamming at all. Titles include the insane break track "Sweetie Pie", plus Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", "Duet", "King Tut", "Samba De Negro" and "Vaya Mulatto". CD
(Part of the Deep Jazz Reality series!)

VariousNu Yorica ! – Culture Clash In New York City 1970-1977 (20th anniversary edition) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99 22.99
A landmark collection – and one that virtually defined an entire generation unto itself! Back in the mid-90s, when this early Soul Jazz collection was first issued – there was a certain strain of Latin music that had been ignored for decades – that unusual fusion of Latin, soul, funk, and jazz that happened mostly in the New York underground of the 70s – at a time when salsa was reigning king, and some of the more soulful currents were getting lost in the shuffle. The work here is wonderful – and thanks to this set, finally has gotten its place in the history book – as a key moment when so many different scenes came together, and made some of the most groundbreaking Latin grooves of the 20th century! The set's got a wonderful book that's really a primer to hip Latin sounds of the 70s – and the 2CD set is filled with gems that include "La Trompeta Y La Flauta" by Cachao, "Gumbo" by Cortijo Y Su Maquina Del Tiempo, "Un Dia Bonita" by Eddie Palmieri and "Macho" by Machito Orchesta – plus "Las Negritas De Caranval" by Charlie Palmieri, "Mamey Colorao" by Ocho, "Aftershower Funk" by Joe Bataan, "Amigos" by Stone Alliance, "Babilonia" by Ricardo Marrero, "Anabaco" by Grupo Folklorico & Experimental, "Little Rico" by Bobby Vince Paunetto, "Condiciones Que Existen" by Eddie Palmieri, "My Friend" by Ricardo Marrero, and "Tornado" by Ocho.

Al FosterMixed Roots ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About April 27, 2016
A stunning set funky 70s jazz! Drummer Al Foster leads the crew on this obscure Japanese session produced by Teo Macero – one that bursts out with a strong funky jazz groove that reminds us of some of the best drum-heavy electric 70s sessions in our collection, like work by Ed Thigpen or Les DeMerle. Players include Masabumi Kikuchi on electric piano, Mike Brecker and Sam Morrison on saxes, and Paul Metzke on guitar – and Teo Macero also sits in on the electric keys on one of the album's mellower cuts. There's not really any standout drum breaks that we caught on the set – but there are a lot of great choppy funk tracks in that "heavy drums meet riffing reeds" style that was started by Elvin Jones and popularized by Stone Alliance. Titles include "Mixed Roots", "Ya Damn Right", "Pauletta", "Double Stuff", and "Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde". CD

✨✧ Jazzberry PatchJazzberry Patch ... CD
JBP/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky electric jazz jam that's been lost for years – very heavy on the keyboards and filled with choppy sax riffs! The sound here is kind of a combination of the Groove Merchant style of the early 70s and some of the tighter intensity of Stone Alliance – as the group (like Stone Alliance) is only a trio, working with instrumentation that includes saxes, drums, and lots of groovy keyboards! The smallness of the group makes for a very sharp-edged sound – one that bristles with electricity, even on the acoustic instruments – and which still stays tight even on the few tracks that bring in other players and a bit of vocals. Mike Longo gives the combo plenty of props in the notes, and also plays some Fender Rhodes on the record – and titles include the massive 20 minute "Jazzberry Patch" jam, the funky vocal track "These Are My Friends", and cuts "Planed Off", "Over Easy", and "Sand N Your Blues".

✨✧ Stone AllianceLive In Bremen ... CD
PM, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare European performance from the Stone Alliance trio – one that was recorded at the same time as their legendary run of albums for the PM label, but never issued at the time! The tracks are nice and long here, and the group really break out – still every bit as tight as on their well-remembered albums of hard funk and heavy jazz, but with some freer elements at times – especially from Steve Grossman's tenor on his long solos, and also from percussionist Don Alias on one long track that's just a 9 minute solo on congas! Other titles include a nice reading of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", plus "Samba De Negro", "Sweetie Pie", "King Tut", and "Taurus People". CD
