✨✧ Kyoto Jazz Sextet (Kyoto Jazz Massive)Mission ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $28.99
Kyoto Jazz Massive is on a soulful mission this time around – stepping out on Blue Note with a wonderful tribute to the rich legacy of the label! The music is directed by Shuya Okino, and played by a super-sharp quintet who really recall the genius of Blue Note in the 60s – especially that time when the label was perfectly balanced between modern and hardbop modes, as evidenced by the selection of compositions here by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Henderson! None of the tracks are straight remakes, and there's definitely a fresh, acoustic spin on the rhythms – played by a lineup that includes trumpet, tenor, piano, bass, and drums – plus some guest instrumentation as well. Tracks include the group's own "Eclipse" – plus "Search For The New Land", "Succotash", "The Melting Pot", "Mr Jin", "Jinrikisha", "Up A Step", and "Speak No Evil". CD

OlatunjiDrums Of Passion ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A classic session of pounding percussion – quite possibly the most successful entry into this earthy genre that hit the recording scene at the end of the 50s! Babatunde Olatunji is joined here by a great assemblage of players – including Montego Joe and Baba Hawthorne Bey on percussion, who further flesh out the rumbling, rhythmic groove at the bottom. There's also a group of vocalists on the record, soaring over the top of the percussion with a nicely righteous feel – and the record's a key crossover moment that heralds later African expressions in the American mainstream. Titles include "Odun De Odun De", "Oya", "Jin Go Lo Ba", "Baba Jinde", and "Shango". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam and mostly split bottom seam.)

✨✧ Art BlakeyIndestructible (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer pounding session from Blakey! The record was recorded during Blakey's bright flash of genius in 1964, when the Jazz Messengers were briefly revisited by Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter, with the added horn of Curtis Fuller to add new colors to the group. Cedar Walton's on piano, and his lyrical comping brings the band to new soulful heights. Tracks include "The Egyptian", "Sortie", "Calling Miss Khadija", and "Mr. Jin". CD features the bonus track "It's A Long Way Down", penned by Wayne Shorter. This is the newly remastered version, too – with additional notes and photos. CD

Antonio AdolfoFeito Em Casa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artezanal/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A sweet set of 70s fusion tracks from Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! Adolfo's probably best known for his mad work for EMI/Odeon at the start of the 70s, but by this point in the decade, he'd mellowed out a bit, and was focusing on more serious jazz-based recordings – most of which were issued only briefly on the tiny label Artezanal. This rare session features Adolfo on moog, Hammond, and Arp – working with a group that includes Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet, Danilo Caymmi on flute, and some guest vocals by Joyce on one track! The overall sound is electric, but not cloyingly so – a mix of breezy, jazzy, and funky styles that really fit together superbly. Titles include "Chickote", "Venice", "Acalanto", "Feito Em Casa", "Ve", "Virry", "Variacoes", "Beijinho", "Dia De Paz", and "As Luzes Estao Brilhando". LP, Vinyl record album

The blend of Jamaican influlences and African heritage combine as passionately as ever on a batch of songs that includes "Afriki", "Jah Houphouet", "Apartheid Is Nazism", "Idjidja", "Kiti", "Sahel", "Come Back Jesus", "Djinamory" and more.

Peter BrotzmannChina Live In Bejing 2011 (CD/DVD) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Musikid/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 2011. New Copy CD & DVD ... $24.99
Just when we've thought we've heard everything Peter Brotzmann has to offer – out comes a record like this, and blows us away all over again! As you'd guess from the title, Brotzmann's working here in a Chinese setting – mixing with younger players we'd never heard before – including Li Tiequiao on alto and Scandinavian spring flute, and Xu Fengxia on zither, sanxian, and voice – a strange style of singing that really makes for an amazing moment on one track! The quartet also features Kristian Mondrup Nielsen on drums – and Brotzmann plays searing tenor, alto, and clarinet – but often changes his phrasing to meet the moods of the younger players – especially at moments when Fengxia is in the forefront. Amazing stuff – and the CD features titles that include "Deciduous Carnival", "Walking In Wu Men", "Beijing Legend", "798 Art District", "Moat", and "Feel As If We Were Visiting Our Country Of Birth". DVD features all these tracks, plus two more! CD

Marion BrownVista ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
A strangely wonderful album from Marion Brown – quite different from his other work on Impulse, with a mellow electric edge that gives it a warm and laidback feel! The approach here is much more soulful than before – with finely crafted tunes that weave Brown's work on alto with electric piano by Anthony Davis and Stanley Cowell, percussion by Ed Blackwell and Jimmy Hopps, and bass by Reggie Workman. If you're expecting the angrier Brown from earlier years, you'll be disappointed – but if you're ready to hear a Brown that's gently crafting mellow lines in a soulful setting, then you're in for a treat. Tracks include Cowell's "Maimoun", Stevie Wonder's "Visions", Brown's "Vista", "Moment of Truth", "Bismillah Rrahimani Rrahim", and "Djinji". CD

Very nice 2LP set that brings together some of Lenny's best moments recorded for Fantasy – including many that aren't currently on CD. The album includes the classic "Thank You, Masked Man", plus "Lima Ohio", "Dijinni In the Candy Store", "Comic At The Palladium", "How To Relax Your Colored Friends At parties", and "The Sound". The material is fantastic, and there's a booklet with a great set of notes on Lenny by Ralph Gleason. LP, Vinyl record album

CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around – especially as his music moved into the 70s – but here, he really takes off with some sublime disco arrangements – full clubby grooves that are some of the best Salsoul sounds of the time, yet which still leave plenty of room for Candi's congas! The congas participate in the rhythms at every level – and often take on a nice solo spotlight too – and all tracks are nice and long, with killers that include a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". CD features a massive amount of bonus tracks – more than on the album – with gems from singles that include "Jingo (original 12" version)", "Thousand Finger Man (12" ext version)", "Jingo (Shep Pettibone mix)", "Thousand Finger Man (single)", "Jingo (single)", and "Jingo (inst)".

Stefon HarrisAfrican Tarantella – Dances With Duke ... CD
Blue Note, 2006. Used ... $4.99
A bold new chapter in the career of vibraphonist Stephon Harris – and proof that he's one of the most amazing players of his generation, one who's always growing into new sounds and styles! Despite the "Duke" in the title here, the work isn't a simple homage to the classics of Ellington – and instead, it uses some lesser-known themes by Duke as vehicles for new waves of color, sound, and tone from Harris – scored in the same soulful way as his brilliant work on Grand Unification Theory from a few years back. The style here is hardly Ellington, and is more a shimmering mix of small combo jazz and strings – headed up mostly by Harris' vibes and marimba, but also featuring Steve Turre on trombone, Anne Drummond on flute, Greg Tardy on clarinet, and Xavier Davis on piano. 3 tracks here are from Harris' own The Gardner Meditations – "Memoirs Of A Frozen Summer", "African Tarantella", and "Dancing Enigma" – and Ellington titles include "Thanks For The Beautiful Land On The Delta", "Portrait Of Wellman Braud", "Bourbon Street Jingling Jollies", "Single Petal Of A Rose", and "Sunset & The Mocking Bird".

✨✧ In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99
There's a great break at the beginning of this one – the kind that you'd be more likely to find in the middle of a tune, as a breakdown – but which almost makes this one feel like you're starting out with the funkier "part 2" of the tune! The cut's an instrumental with some heavy horns that blow in once it gets going – somewhere in a space between 70s Afro Funk and The JBs! "MTA" has some nice trippy bits on the guitar at the beginning – and a snapping rhythm to start the whole thing out, ala "Time Is Tight" – before the moody horns come in and make the whole thing their own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jiro Inagaki & His Soul MediaDosojin (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Vocalist Yasuhsi Sawada joins Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media group this time around – but in a way that seems to create a whole new sound from both artists! The album's got a deeper, more sophisticated style than some of Inagaki's other records – not just funky soul, but a richer suite of tracks that still has plenty of soulful currents, but which also reaches towards some more ambitious emotional territory too – never in a way that's clunky or snoozy, but which takes all the best elements of the Soul Media groove, and pushes them a bit farther too! Sawada's vocals are all in Japanese, and have this very powerful approach – never dominating the music, but moving through the instrumentation in this evocative way that almost feels instrumental to our ears, given our lack of understanding of the language. The whole thing's almost got a spiritual undercurrent, althought the presentation is still more in the groovy mode of other Soul Media sets – and titles include "Sasara", "Tabute", "Kusakai", "Kigishi", "Susomi", and "Inanome".

Columbia/Drastic Plastic, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
David Johansen wipes off the lipstick and kicks off his heels for this first solo set –sans drag, we're left with a normal looking dude – and one hell of a great, still glam-sounding record that's right up there in excellence with his New York Dolls canon! Wow, is this ever underrated. David would eventually go on the tweak his style and persona in a bunch of different ways, to varying creative and commercial success. Here he's just out to make a kickass rock and roll record as he'd done with the dolls, sans the wardrobe and junkie hijinks, but with all the blistering rock guitar and gritty R&B influences. This one really blazes! Includes "Funky But Chic", "Girls", "Not That Much", "Donna", "I'm A Lover" and "Frenchette". LP, Vinyl record album

LL Cool JMama Said Knock You Out (3D lenticular cover pressing) ... LP
Def Jam, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A huge moment for LL Cool J – and a set that has him balanced nicely between the sharp rhymes of his roots and the rising stardom of his role in the larger world of R&B as well! Marley Marl produced, and the whole thing's still got a nice edge – even though some of these tunes entered the mainstream and got LL quite a bit of play in areas he'd never reached before. Hits include "Around The Way Girl", "Mama Said Knock You Out", "To Da Break Of Dawn", "Jinglin Baby", and "6 Minutes Of Pleasure – and other cuts include "Milky Cereal", "Eat Em Up L Chill", "Mr Good Bar", "The Boomin System", "Cheesy Rat Blues", and "Farmers Blvd".

✨✧ Toshiko & Charlie MarianoToshiko Mariano & Her Big Band Recorded In Tokyo ... LP
Vee Jay, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
Killer rare jazz material from Japan! Toshiko Akioshi was one of Japan's greatest jazz musicians, and in the late 50s she came to the US, made her name, and married alto great Charlie Mariano. At some point in the early 60s, they moved back to Japan and had a rich influence on the jazz scene in Tokyo – as is ably demonstrated by this LP! The album's a fantastic set of large group arrangements by Toshiko and Charlie – and the soloists (besides the two of them) include some of Japan's greatest players, like Sleepy Matsumoto and Shigeo Suzuki. Just to make sure the whole thing swings, there's rhythm by an American duo of Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb, and believe us, they do everything they can to kick the group hard! We've loved this one for years. Nice titles include "The Shout", "Israel", "Land Of Peace", and "Kisarazu Jink". A key piece in US/Japan jazz relations, and a swingin' batch of hard jazz tracks to boot! LP, Vinyl record album

Wes MontgomeryWes Montgomery Trio (aka A Dynamic New Jazz Sound) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used ... $3.99
Wes Montgomery's first album as a leader – a relatively obscure set that has him playing in a trio with Indianapolis bandmates Mel Rhyne on organ and Paul Parker on drums – a mode that strongly recalls Montgomery's roots in the Indy scene at the time!. The groove is straight and simple, but the real charm is Wes' chromatic lines on guitar – already quite distinctive among his contemporaries, and allowed ample room to express their voice in this setting. Titles include "Ecorah", "Missile Blues", "Too Late Now", "Jingles", and "Whisper Not". CD features 2 bonus tracks! CD

Pete RugoloAdventures In Rhythm ... LP
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
One of the records that arranger Pete Rugolo cut for Columbia in the years after he parted company with Stan Kenton. As most modern jazz ears will know, Rugolo was one of the main reasons for Kenton's uniquely swinging approach in the early 50s – and he also lent his talents to some fantastic records by June Christy, The Four Freshmen, and other hip vocalists of the time. This side has plenty of Rugolo's modern touches – but manages to swing nicely, spending a bit of time with strange assemblages of instruments and odd phrasings, but also getting back to the groove in time to keep things lively. Titles include "Sambamba", "Here's Pete", "Mixin The Blues", "Rugolo Meets Shearing", "Jingle Bells Mambo", "Good Evening Friends Boogie", "Conversation", and "Bazaar". LP, Vinyl record album

Ok, so you were once embarrassed to have this in your collection – and sold it off so your buddies at college wouldn't make fun of you. Now, though, you treasure it as a crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil Ways", "Savor", "Jingo", "Soul Sacrifice", and "Shades of Time". LP, Vinyl record album
