✨✧ John Stevens & Evan ParkerLongest Night Vol 2 ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very free duets between these two ex-partners in the Spontaneous Music Ensemble – a session with very little structure at all, and sounds that are almost more FMP than other Ogun albums of the time! Evan Parker plays soprano sax throughout – and Stevens alternates between percussion and cornet – using mostly the former, but sometimes a bit of the latter in ways that have a surprising sense of presence. Parker's notes are nicely shaped on the best numbers – bringing in occasional more human moments amidst more Lacy-like bleats and blonks on the soprano. Titles include "21.25", "21.47", "22.18", "23.12", and "23.40. LP, Vinyl record album

John Lennon/Yoko OnoUnfinished Music No 2 – Life With The Lions (with download & bonus tracks) ... LP
Zapple/Secretly Canadian, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 23.98
Fantastically wild work from the team of Yoko Ono and John Lennon – a set in which Yoko very firmly pulls John into the world of Fluxus, experimentation – on a record that's more of an art piece than most of the other later releases by the pair! Side one is a live piece called "Cambridge 1969" – which is performed by John and Yoko, with the help of avant jazzmen John Tchicai and John Stevens – with lots of noisy guitar and some pretty unbridled vocals from Yoko! Side 2 features a number of spare tracks recorded on a cassette at Queen Charlotte Hospital, in 1968 – some noisy, some a bit sweeter – and titles include "No Bed For Beatle John" (as pictured on the cover), "Baby's Heartbeat", and "Two Minutes Silence".

Jose FelicianoOf Muse & Man (aka That The Spirit Needs) ... LP
RCA, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
A sublime one from Jose! The record pushes past the easy Latin pop style of the late 60s, and features Jose working through hip rock tunes – both of his own creation, and by writers like Elton John and Cat Stevens. The real highlight of the album is an incredible reading of "Wild World" – done with a mix of fast guitar, strings, and even a bit of Brazilian-tinged scatting that breaks down in the middle and always makes us stop cold! The rest of the record's almost as good, and titles include "Daytime Dreams", "Mellow Feeling", "Come Down Jesus", "Pay Day", and "Only Once". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jose FelicianoThat The Spirit Needs/Memphis Menu/Compartments ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of wonderful albums from Jose Feliciano – all brought together here in a single set! First up is That The Spirit Needs – a sublime one from Jose! The record pushes past the easy Latin pop style of the late 60s, and features Jose working through hip rock tunes – both of his own creation, and by writers like Elton John and Cat Stevens. The real highlight of the album is an incredible reading of "Wild World" – done with a mix of fast guitar, strings, and even a bit of Brazilian-tinged scatting that breaks down in the middle and always makes us stop cold! The rest of the record's almost as good, and titles include "Daytime Dreams", "Mellow Feeling", "Come Down Jesus", "Pay Day", and "Only Once". Memphis Menue is an excellent album from Jose Feliciano – recorded with a lot of Memphis soul influences, as the title indicates, but still with that beautifullly jazzy style that he was using in his earlier LA recordings. Steve Cropper helped produced and arrange with Jose, and the Memphis Horns back up the group on a number of tracks. The real charm, though, is Jose – whose breezy vocals and sweet guitar work is right up there with his best work of the time, a sublime mix of soul, strings, jazz, and Chicano grooves. Titles include "River Song", "Magnolia", "One More Mile", "Never Leave You", "It Doesn't Matter", "Where Is My Woman", and "Movin". Compartments is sparklingly soulful work from Jose Feliciano – a key early 70s effort, and one that shows the growing sensitivity in his music – the move way past simple covers of other people's songs, even though those were pretty great too! Jose's voice has gotten even more compelling in the process, and he's also developing a bit as a songwriter too – most notably on the album's title track, which was co-written with Bill Withers. Steve Cropper helped produce, but the album's way more in Jose's bag than Cropper's – and titles include a great version of "Yes We Can Can", plus "Simple Song", "Compartments", "Sea Cruise", "I'm Leavin", "Things Are Changin", "Peace Of Mind", "Hey Look At The Sun", and "Don't Fail".

Spontaneous Music EnsembleChallenge 1966 to 1967 ... CD
Eyemark/Emanem (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Amazing free jazz from the British scene of the mid 60s – some of the earliest rumblings of genius from the Spontaneous Music Ensemble – already working here at a level that matches the avant energy happening both in the US and on the larger European scene! Core interplay here comes from Paul Rutherford on trombone, John Stevens on drums, and Trevor Watts on alto sax – three well-matched and familiar players who are able to improvise at a level that's quite mature, especially for the time – let loose, but never without a sense of direction – and given great help on most tracks by Kenny Wheeler on flugelhorn, plus a bit of bass from either Jeff Clyne or Bruce Cale. The whole thing's amazing – really bridging a modern world of Ornette Coleman and Joe Harriott with some of the later FMP-styled sounds that would come from the continent – and titles include "ED's Message", "2B Ornette", "Day Of Reckoning", "Travelling Together", "Club 66", and "After Listening". CD features the unissued "End To A Beginning" – plus the bonus 15 minute "Distant Little Soil", by a group that has Evan Parker on soprano sax and Chris Cambridge on bass, working with Watts and Stevens.

✨✧ Spontaneous Music EnsembleWithdrawal 1966 to 1967 ... CD
Emanem (UK), 1966/1967. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Unreleased recordings from that amazing moment when British jazz was really coming into its own – exploring the farther reaches of the avant garde, but in ways that were quite different than American sounds at the time! The lineup here features some of the most inventive London players of the generation– Kenny Wheeler on trumpet and flugelhorn, Paul Rutherford on trombone, Trevor Watts on alto and flute, Evan Parker on soprano and tenor, Barry Guy on bass and piano, and John Stevens on drums and percussion – plus some especially mesmerizing guitar from Derek Bailey on two thirds of the album's tracks. Given the 1966 and 1967 dates, the music is years ahead of its time – and titles include unused tracks for a film soundtrack – "Withdrawal" – plus other Withdrawal tracks, and the longer "Seeing Sounds & Hearing Colours".

✨✧ Derek BaileyFairly Early – With Postcripts ... CD
Emanem (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly the best document you could ever hope to find of the inventive guitar skills of Derek Bailey – a CD that brings together his seminal In Whose Tradition album with rare bonus tracks and unreleased numbers too! The core of the record features Bailey playing solo – both acoustic and electric – using the guitar less like an instrument than as a tool for exploring sound – both those coming from his own hands, and those which echo forth in the space around him! Two more tracks feature Anthony Braxton on flute and sopranino sax, and two others have Bailey in a trio with Kent Carter on bass and John Stevens on drums – and the long CD features tracks that include "Tunnel Hearing", "Rehearsal Extract (area 7)", "Six Fairly Early Pieces", "In Whose Tradition", "Postscript", "A Bit Of The Crust", and "The Last Post (morning)".

✨✧ VariousGunsmoke Vols 1 & 2 – Dark Tales Of Western Noir From A Ghost Town Jukebox ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool collection of really oddball numbers – unusual country, offbeat pop numbers, and a fair bit of cuts that have a popcorn groove somewhere down there at the bottom! These aren't the usual sorts of cuts you might expect – and instead, the collection's definitely on the hipper side of the spectrum from the things we hear from the Stag O Lee label – almost like some of the great collections that the Trailer Park label's been putting out of late. The CD combines the first two vinyl volumes for 25 tracks in all: Includes "Come Back Juanita" by Juan Montego & His Habana Sound, "Pale Faced Indian" by Marvin Rainwater, "Satan's Chauffeur" by Jimmy Minor, "Silver Coin" by Ken & Carol Crag, "Watcha Gonna Do" by Hayden Thompson, "The Klan" by The Gatemen, "Mad Witch" by Dave Gardner, "Laughing All Over My Grave" by Ray Stevens, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Don't Jump" by Billy Fury, "The Hanging Day" by Warren Smith, "Riding Shotgun" by Danny Welch, "Satan Is Her Name" by Steve King & The Echelons, "Born To Love One Woman" by Ric Cartey, "All I Can Do Is Cry" by Johnny Bond, "Gringo" by El Clod, and "Baby Doll" by The Magnificent Seven.

✨✧ VariousTrad Dads, Dirty Boppers, & Free Fusioneers – British Jazz 1961 to 1975 ... CD
Reel Recordings, 1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than the trad jazz and bebop you might guess from the title – as the set's an incredible compilation of unreleased British jazz treasures – mostly from the 60s, and showing the London scene in the grip of some very formative years! In the immediate postwar years, UK jazz was a pretty straight and tight thing – but as the 60s approached, the sound of London really opened up – not just because of a huge influx of key post-colonial players, but also because the locals were really gaining confidence, and trying out a wealth of new styles on their own – styles that explode wonderfully here, in a mix of 60s modern styles that's really incredible. All tracks here are pulled from the archives of the artists, and many capture key players at periods we haven't heard this strongly before – with work by a quintet with Mike Taylor on piano and Dave Tomlin on tenor; a quintet with Henry Lowther on trumpet, Lyn Dobson on tenor, Tony Hymas on piano, and Harry Miller on bass; a septet with John Stevens on drums, Kenny Wheeler on flugelhorn, Alan Skidmore on tenor, and Ray Warleigh on alto; a quintet with Joe Harriott on alto and Kenny Wheeler on flugelhorn; a quartet with Mike Osborne on alto and John Surman on baritone; Amancio D'Silva on guitar with the quintet of Don Rendell and Ian Carr; a quartet with Lol Coxhill on soprano sax and Steve Miller on piano, and work by groups that include Elton Dean's Just Us, Gary Windo's Symbiosis, and Graham Collier Music.

✨✧ Spontaneous Music EnsembleKaryobin – Are The Imaginary Birds Said To Live In Paradise (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Island/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the first albums ever from this legendary British creative force in jazz – heard here at a time when the group was a quintet – with the mighty drummer John Stevens at the lead – alongside mindblowingly fresh performances from Evan Parker on soprano sax, Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Derek Bailey on guitar, and Dave Holland on bass! The players are so new to the scene that Bailey is actually billed as "Dennis" on the back of the original album cover, and Kenny is listed as "Wheel" – but they all play here with the confidence and vision that would soon make them giants – and key players who'd show the world that the UK scene was every bit as free-thinking as those in the US and Europe. The album features one long improvisation – and Bailey is especially wonderful in the setting – making these ringing notes that scatter and skitter alongside Parker's beautiful soprano work – egged on by Steven's to move freely over the drum kit. CD

✨✧ VariousSwan's Soul Sides – Dance The Philly ... CD
Swan/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Swan Records was a real powerhouse of Philly Soul back in the 60s – a label whose efforts really set the scene for countless more Philly achievements to come! Swan was primarily a pop label – with some big hits (including early US release of Beatles singles) to its name – but the company was also on the scene to cut some of the best soul in Philadelphia as the 60s got going – a great deal of which is brought together on this set! Swan's sides often have a Northern Soul vibe that rivals the best of Detroit, especially labels away from Motown – and the pop experience gave the label a quality of production and professionalism that few other labels could match! Yet there's also no pop commercialism here, either – as these sides often step back and really let the artist do their thing – as you'll hear on 26 tracks that include "Everybody Crossfire" by Sammy Stevens, "Gotta Draw The Line" by The Three Degrees, "Have Faith In Me" by Sugar & Spice, "Put Yourself In My Place" by Azie Mortimer, "In Love" by Tony Galla & The Rising Sons, "Misery" by Eddie Carlton, "Run Run" by The Persianettes, "You're Everything" by The Showmen, "Put That Woman Down" by John Leach, "Who Do You Love" by The Sapphires, "Handsome Boy" by The Ladybirds, "Trying To Find My Baby" by Troy Dodds, and "Two Steps Ahead" by Herb Johnson.

Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1956. Used ... $9.99
Although the initial release of this music was a cheap attempt to cash in on the tragic fame of the late James Dean, this 1956 session was also one of the nicest big band dates to come out of the Pacific Jazz catalog of the 1950s! Chet Baker and Bud Shank are the featured soloists of the set – and the group's conducted by Johnny Mandel and Bill Holman, both excellent arrangers with a strong feel for soundtrack-oriented material of this sort. Tommy Sands sings vocals on a version of "Let Me Be Loved", which is the only standard on the set – as the rest of the tracks are originals by the great Leith Stevens. The band's filled with other west coasters that you'll recognize – and titles include "The Movie Star", "Jimmy's Theme", "The Search", "Lost Love", and "Rebel At Work". CD

Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... LP
New Jazz, 1959. Very Good- ... $11.99
Good feelings and plenty of soul – some very early work as a leader from Hammond hero Johnny Smith! The set's got Johnny using the organ with lots of stops out – that full, wide range of the instrument that initially knocked so many folks for a loop when it first came into jazz – then really took strong formation in the hands of a player like this! The groove's a bit like a Jimmy Smith record for Blue Note, but a lot grittier too – with some occasional elements of R&B mixed in with the more far-reaching jazz sensibilities. The group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar, who'd played famously with Jimmy Smith – plus George Tucker on bass and Leo Stevens on drums. Titles include the originals "Puddin" and "That Good Feelin" – plus "My Funny Valentine", "I'll Remember April", and "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A solid early 60s side by Johnny Hammond Smith and one that's unlike a lot of his other records from the time. This set was recorded with the great tenor player Seldon Powell, one of the few sessions where he actually gets a lot of room to solo, which we welcome whole-heartedly. Clement Wells is featured on vibes, and Wally Richardson and Leo Stevens round out the group on guitar and drums. The set rocks nicely with the classic East coast Jersey sound you'd look for in one of these hard to get Prestige sides, and includes numbers like "Let Everybody Say Amen", "Upset", "Que Sera Baby" and "Soul Grits". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nancy WilsonAll In Love Is Fair/Come Get To This ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1974/1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of great Nancy Wilson albums from the mid 70s in a single set! All In Love Is Far is a sophisticated album of soul tracks arranged and produced by Gene Page, in a string-heavy, slightly-funky style that reminds us of Gene's work with Barry White at the time. The tracks are all pretty hip – and include titles written by Stevie Wonder, Johnny Guitar Watson, Thom Bell & Linda Creed, Billy Page, and Tennyson Stevens. No standout singles, but plenty of nice moments, and a good side of Nancy's career that isn't always given that much exposure. Titles include "Tell The Truth", "Try It, You'll Like It", "All In Love Is Fair", "There'll Always Be Forever", and "You're As Right As Rain". Come Get To This is a real sweet soul gem from '75. It also has arrangements and production by Gene and Billy Page – who give the record a great smooth 70s soul finish, and a feel that's a lot more unified than some of her other efforts from the decade. Nancy sings some great versions of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" and "Come Get To This", plus the original tracks "Houdini Of The Midnight Hour", "Like A Circle Never Stops", "Boogeyin All The Way", and "Happy Tears".

✨✧ VariousHenry Stone's Miami Sound – The Record Man's Finest 45s ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of music we've ever heard from the legendary TK Records in Miami – a company that was a powerhouse of 70s hits and disco classics – but which also cut some wonderful underground soul at the time! This sublime set looks at that great lesser-known legacy of TK – the hipper, more sophisticated music they cut in between the chart numbers and boogie singles – often by soul artists who had some involvement with bigger acts, but who really got a chance here to shine on their own! There's a surprising amount of funk in the mix – that deeper current that made Miami a key heir to 60s funky styles from Memphis and New Orleans – and there's some equally great modern soul, but served up with a complexity that goes way past the usual – both in the songwriting and arrangements. If you've only heard TK hit collections, you'll find plenty to love here – and even for deeper diggers like us, there's still plenty of new bits to be discovered! Titles include "Confusion" by Leno Phillips, "You Knock Me Out" by Wildflower, "Hey There Jim" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Tears Of The World" by Robert Moore, "I Got Bills To Pay" by Johnny K, "I Want To Be Loved" by Stevens & Foster, "Sleep On Dream On" by Raphael Munnings, "Life Is A Beautiful Feeling" by Formula 1, "Bahama Soul Stew" by Funky Nassau, "Lay It On Me" by Willie Johnson, "The Silence That You Keep (version 1)" by Milton Wright, and "There Must Be Something" by Friday Saturday & Sunday.

The most complete CD/DVD package we've seen on The James Dean Story – featuring 2CDs worth of music, plus a bonus DVD! The DVD includes the 1957 James Dean Story – a documentary on the career of Dean, directed by a young Robert Altman, and featuring clips from films, interviews with family and friends, and other archival footage from Dean's life. CD 1 features the original score for the film, issued originally by Capitol Records, composed by Leith Stevens, arranged by Bill Holman and Johnny Mandel – and one of the nicest big band dates to come out of the Pacific Jazz catalog of the 1950s! Chet Baker and Bud Shank are the featured soloists of the set – and the group's conducted by Johnny Mandel and Bill Holman, both excellent arrangers with a strong feel for soundtrack-oriented material of this sort.

CD 2 features material from 2 different albums – A Tribute To James Dean, originally issued by Imperial Records in the late 50s, and The James Dean Story, a Coral album featuring music with narration by Steve Allen, Gigi Perreau, and Bill Randle. The Imperial album is represented here by 11 tracks – featuring music from a variety of James Dean scores for the films Giant, East Of Eden, and Rebel Without A Cause, conducted by Leonard Rosenman, who also composed most of the tunes. The Coral album is represented here by 6 tracks – both spoken and musical, with titles that include "Remembering James Dean", "His Name Was Dean", "We'll Never Forget You", and "James Dean". CD
