Peter BrotzmannChina Live In Bejing 2011 (CD/DVD) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Musikid/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 2011. Used CD/DVD ... $18.99
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

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".

Wes MontgomeryWes Montgomery Quartet Live In Belgium 1965 ... CD
Gambit (Spain), 1965. Used ... $12.99
Rare work from Wes Montgomery – captured here not just live in Belgium – but also in London and Hamburg as well! The first 10 tracks on the set are from rare TV show performances from Belgium and London in 1965 – and feature Wes grooving with his same combo from the famous Paris recordings from the same year – Harold Mabern on piano, Art Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums. Mabern's presence is especially great, as he gives the tunes a flowing grace that seems to bring out a new spirit in Wes – and the recordings have a joyously dancing feel that's really wonderful. Titles include "The Boy Next Door", "Impressions", "Twisted Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Jingles", and "Full House". The remaining 4 tracks on the CD are from another 1965 European date – but one recorded live in Hamburg with a group that includes Martial Solal on piano, Michel Gaudry on bass, and Ronnie Stephenson on drums – plus a bit of tenor on one track from Johnny Griffin. Solal's piano has a bit of a darker edge than Mabern's here – and the tracks are noticeably longer, with really free-flowing solos from Wes. Titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Twisted Blues", "Blue Monk", and "Four On Six". CD

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

VariousAfrican Pearls Vol 5 – Cote D'Ivoire – West African Crossroads ... CD
Syllart (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
African Pearls from the Ivory Coast – some surprisingly great numbers from the Syllart catalog, all from a scene we know very little about! The groove here is different than some of the other African Pearls sets – pretty funky at times, with great guitar, keyboard, and bass parts that often emulate American-styled soul and funk – all mixed in with some more regional elements, but again in ways that are different than work of the sort you might find from other African nations! The package is a real revelation – and is overflowing with goodness we might never have discovered otherwise – a set list that features 33 tracks that include "Bliwana" by Ernesto Djedje, "Moya" by Doh Albert, "Pecoussa" by Francois Lougah, "Gbabouho Gnoave" by Justin Stanislas, "Bida Zougou" by Amedee Pierre, "Exode Rurale" by Djins Music, and lots lots more!

✨✧ Ice CubePredator ... CD
Priority/Lench Mob, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cube's last truly great full length, from 1992, when he was leaving the gangsta stuff behind and had grown into an incredibly sharp social commentator and ghetto portrait painter. The rhymes, and even the liner note acknowledgements ("Ice Cube wishes to acknowledge white America's continued commitment to the silence and oppression of black men. . .") are wickedly incisive to this day. This could be his finest hour. Includes the singles "It Was A Good Day", "Check Yo Self" and "Wicked", "Gangsta's Fairytale 2", "Dirty Mack" and "Now I Gotta Wet'cha". Production by DJ Pooh, Muggs, Sir Jinx, and others. CD

✨✧ Kool G Rap & DJ PoloLive & Let Die ... CD
Cold Chillin, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The east coast crime life epic from Kool G Rap & DJ Polo – hard hitting headnodding production from Sir Jinx, Kool G Rap & Trakmasterz – and riveting, violent wordplay from Kool G Rap! Live And Let Die isn't as well remembered as a handful of the other violent storytelling classics of the era – but this thing sounds pretty tight all these years later, and it's a clear precursor to some legendary material to come! Includes "#1 With A Bullet", "Go For Your Guns", "Nuff Said", "Edge of Sanity", "Home Sweet Home", and "Two To The Head", featuring Ice Cube, Scarface, & Bushwick Bill, and the classic "On the Run".

✨✧ VariousAfrodeclic ... CD
KS Music (France), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really well done compilation of African Funk – filled with tracks we've never heard before, and pushing way past the obvious contents of other compilations! The package is right up there with the best of the best – Booniay, Club Africa, Nigeria 70, and others – in that it brings together a wealth of tracks from France, Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroun, West Africa, and even Switzerland – all united by a flair for the groove, and a sound that's steeped in 70s funk! Basslines, scratchy guitars, and tight percussion abound – and the set's got a total of 16 tracks that include "Let Me Get Stoned" by Boo & The Tru Tones, "The Soukouss" by Manu Dibango & Hal Singer, "Mama Matotoya" by The Vickings, "Leo (parts 1 & 2)" by Kolahyah, "Awarness Is What You Need" by Monomono, "Grazing In The Grass" by The Ramblers International, "Hello Black Benny" by Tony Leveille & Ses Challengers Sound, "Ojinga's Own" by The Yoruba Singers, "Black Poem" by Moussa Dumbia, "Joe" by Marius Cultier, "Africa Boogaloo" by Kalle & L'Africa Team De Paris, and "Afrodeclic" by Marc Thomas.

✨✧ Gerson King ComboGerson King Combo Vol 1 ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest Brazilian funk records ever! Gerson King and his group had a hard heavy sound that was part James Brown, and part jazzier groups like Banda Black Rio. They were one of a small group of black Brazilian groups dedicated to putting out real soul and real funk – and as this album will attest, they succeeded wonderfully! The whole thing's got a nice hard sound, with lots of choppy grooves, and loads of great deep funk moments. Titles include "Blows", "Mandamentos Black", "Jingle Black", "God Save The King", "Uma Chance", "Swing Do Rei", and "Esse E O Nosso Black Brother". CD
