Joe Harriott Double QuintetIndo-Jazz Suite (US pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
A lost classic from reedman Joe Harriott – and a landmark blending of jazz and world music! The core of the group is that quintet of West Indian alto player Joe Harriott – one of the leading lights of the British jazz scene of the 60s, and a dedicated modernist who was as important to England as Ornette Coleman was to America. Harriott's group is expanded by the addition of John Mayer's quintet of Indian musicians, who play in tandem with Harriott's group in a swirling blend of styles and sounds. The sound is spacey and trippy, with more elements of Indian music, than of jazz, but Harriott still manages to get some nice playing in. The whole album is one long suite of tracks, and titles include "Contrasts", "Raga Megha", and "Raga Gaud-Saranga". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red and purple label pressing, with Atlantic inner sleeve. Cover has a small cutout hole, a Factory Sealed sticker in back, and a small center split in the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 40.99
The most mindblowing work we've ever heard from guitarist Amancio D'Silva – a really freewheeling blend of jazz and Indian music, and a set that goes far beyond most of his other albums! The album definitely lives up to the dream sequence promised by the title – as it features one long track that spins out in a beautiful blend of tablas, sitar, flute, percussion, violin, and Amancio's own great electric guitar! The leader crafts these trippy solos that are a bit like the work of Gabor Szabo, but even more open-ended and exotic – and the group also features some great work on sax from Alan Branscombe, plus violin from John Mayer – who'd worked on previous experiments of this nature with Joe Harriott. Despite the length of the track, the record is never over-indulgent or repetitive at all – as D'Silva constantly shifts the mood and the sounds – creating this wonderful interplay that really makes for a scenic richness throughout – an evocative journey in music that holds us completely rapt all the way through.

✨✧ Wilton Bogey GaynairBlue Bogey ... LP
Jasmine (UK), 1959. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wilton Bogey Gaynair was one of a number of West Indian jazz players who emigrated to England during the postwar years – and while he's not as famous as contemporaries like Joe Harriott or Shake Keane, this classic set from 1959 shows that he had a rich talent that deserved greater recognition! The set's a laidback blowing one – very much in the mode of some of Tubby Hayes' sides from the time – and it features Hayes' frequent pianist Terry Shannon, plus bass by Kenny Napper and drums by Bill Eyden. Gaynair's tenor has a slightly broken quality that's a bit odd at first, but which has kept us coming back to this record over the years because of his fresh earthy tone. Includes the original tunes "Wilton's Mood", "Blues For Tony", "Rhythm",and "Deborah". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing.)

✨✧ Albert MangelsdorffOne Tension ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1963. New Copy Tri-fold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from one of Germany's greatest modernists – one of the key records that showed the world that German jazz was way more than just a rehashing of American modes in the postwar years! This rare 1963 recording features the quintet of trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – a groundbreaking unit that includes tenorist Heinz Sauer, altoist Gunter Kronberg, bassist Gunter Lenz, and drummer Ralf Hubner – a fantastic combo that comes together in a stark modernist groove that's right up there with the best work of Ornette Coleman or Joe Harriott from the time – very rhythmic, in ways that offset the freedom of the horn solos beautifully – letting the saxes and trombones soar, while the bass and drums lock into a tight groove. The no-piano, three-horn frontline is incredibly strong – bracing and powerful, but never in a way that's too cold or modern, thanks to an inherent sense of soul in allt he players. Titles include "Varie", "Ballade Fur Jessica Rose", "Club Trois", "Set Em Up", and "Tension". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful tri-fold cover pressing – just like the original!)

✨✧ Charlie Munro QuartetEastern Horizons ... LP
Philips/Be! (Germany), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally cool little record – and one that more than lives up to the Eastern promise of its cover! The album's a real stunner from Australian reedman Charlie Munro – a beautiful mix of jazz and exotic elements, at a level that puts it up there with a rare few records that work this well – like the Indo-Jazz experiments of Joe Harriott, the earlier recordings of Ahmed Abdul Malik, and maybe the legendary Jazz Meets World series on MPS! Munro's range of influences is nicely varied here – with some elements of Indian music, others borrowed from Japan, and even some from points that are a bit more Mid-East – mostly delivered on familiar jazz instrumentation, but with very dramatic results. Charlie plays tenor, alto, soprano sax, and bass clarinet – plus a bit of flute and cello too – and the rest of the group includes Mark Bowden on drums and vibes, Neville Whitehead on bass, and Bob McIvor on trombone – an instrument that's often used in these dark, bassy tones with the rhythms. Titles include "Islamic Suite", "Arch's Groove", "Malahari Raga", "David", "Japanese Love Song", "Minimum", "When I Look At You", and "Raised Eyebrows". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

✨✧ Bernie McGann1966 – Archive Series Vol 1 ... LP
Sarang Bang (New Zealand), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful set from the Australian jazz underground of the 60s – two never-heard live recordings by the group of altoist Bernie McGann – a player who was one of the strongest modernists working down under at the time! Bernie's got this open, soaring tone on his horn that's really wonderful – as sharp-edged as Ornette Coleman or Joe Harriott, but much more spiritual overall – set here to mostly modal rhythms, and served up with stunning trumpet work from Kim Paterson – another overlooked player from the time! Side one features a live recording from Sydney in 1966 – all original tracks, all long and very open – titled "Lazy Days", "Chuggin", and "Sky". And side two features another 1966 performance, but without piano, in a way that's even more open and freewheeling – with the trumpet and alto really taking off on a 13 minute version of Ornette Coleman's "When Will The Blues Leave" and a 9 minute take on "Rhythm A Ning". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – heavy vinyl and cover, and with a bonus insert of notes too!)
