JoyceFiz Uma Viagem – Songs Of Dorival Caymmi ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $28.99
Warmly jazzy magic from Joyce – a set that's based around the songs of Dorival Caymmi – which she recorded at the insistence of Nana Caymmi – yet an album that's all completely Joyce's own as well! The setting here is perfect – Joyce on vocals and guitar, with Tutty Moreno on drums and percussion, Rodolfo Stroeter on bass, and the great Helio Alves on piano – no other instrumentation, or any electric touches at all – which has Joyce's contributions soaring out, and sounding completely wonderful – that perfect dance between breezy, scatting vocals and jazzy guitar lines she first created in the 70s – captured here at a level that makes the set one of her most compelling albums in the past few decades! The influence of Caymmi is clear on decades of Brazilian music – but what's also clear is that the man's sense of individuality has inspired so many of his followers to go their own way – which Joyce does here beautifully. Titles include "Vatapa", "Maricotinha", "Acalanto", "Canto De Nana", "Maracangalha", "Fiz Uma Viagem", and "Sabado Em Copacabana". CD

JoycePalavras E Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
The lovely Joyce – sounding lovelier here than we've heard in years – on a special Japanese album that really takes the singer back to her best classic territory! Backing is by a small group, and nicely jazzy – with piano from Helio Alves, and drums from Tutty Moreno – providing gentle accompaniment, but really letting the lady stretch out on her own vocals and acoustic guitar – with those soaring, cascading lines that first made us fall in love with her music way back in the 70s – captured perfectly here with impeccable, understated production. Alves notes on the piano are especially beautiful – ringing out in a way that really offsets the vocals and guitar – on titles that include "Mingus, Miles, & Coltrane", "Humaita", "No Misterio Do Samba", "Sambando No Apocalipse", "Casa Da Flor", "Na 75", "Ave Maria Serena", and "Forrobodo Das Meninas".

Joyce, Sivuca, Tutty Moreno, Celia Vaz, & OthersBrasil ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1994. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 22.99
A really groundbreaking album of Brazilian sounds – a set recorded in the mid 90s by a London label – but one with a vibe that stretches back to the most important classics of the Brazilian scene in the 60s and 70s! In a way, the whole record's a bit out of time – nothing at all like Brazilian music being made in the 90s, and really the beginning of a moment of British-based preservation of lost genius that would flower in countless reissues and new recordings from labels like Mr Bongo and Far Out! Yet this set preceded most of those – and marks a first effort along those lines – done with help from Joe Davis of Far Out, and a key combination of Brazilian talents from previous decades – including singers Celia Vaz and Wanda Sa, drummer Tutty Moreno, saxophonist Teco Cardoso, trombonist Raul De Souza, percussionist Pirulito, and the most legendary talents of Joyce and Sivuca! The tunes have this beautiful mixture of natural, organic energy and modern jazz inflections – very much like the kind of sounds that Hermeto Pascoal and Airto unlocked with Quarteto Novo, but also with the energy of Joyce's classic material too – recorded beautifully, with an instantly timeless vibe. Titles include "Batucada No 1", "Capoeira", "Magica", "Berimbau", "Amazon River", "Misturada", "Forro", and "Zanzibar". CD

✨✧ Joyce LeftenantIt's Too Late! ... LP
Versatile, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A sophisticated soul set from the late 70s – done by vocalist Joyce Leftenant, with a smooth groove that reminds us a bit of the mix of jazz and soul you'd hear in Marlena Shaw at the time! Joyce is working here with large arrangements from Mario Sprouse, played by a great range of jazz funk luminaries – including Hank Crawford on alto and Johnny Hammond on keyboards! The instrumentation is nice and strong – so much so that at points, the record almost feels like a jazz album with vocals – instead of the other way around. Titles include "Inside Of Me", "It's Too Late", "You Loved Me All The Time", "Let Me Be Your Woman", "I Believe You", and "Everything That Touches You". LP, Vinyl record album

Doug CarnAdams Apple ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – with singing by Joyce Green and John Conner, blending their voices together in a style that's right up there with the most righteous 70s jazz experiments by Horace Silver or Billy Gault! This vocal balance really brings a new sort of power to Carn's music – furthering the righteous spirit of earlier years with a hell of a lot of energy – also aided by great instrumental work from Ronnie Laws on tenor and soprano sax, Thurman Green on trombone, Calvin Keys and Nathan Page on guitars, and Big Black on percussion. Titles include the classic "Higher Ground" – plus "Adam's Apple", "Western Sunrise", "Chant", "Sanctuary", "The Messenger", and "Mighty Mighty". CD

Benjamin ClementineI Tell A Fly ... CD
Virgin, 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 11.98
One of the most unique artists we've heard in years – and one who will no doubt be setting the world on fire for years to come! Benjamin Clementine's a singer, but also a poet – inspired by jazz and classical music, yet working here in neither – and instead, finding a path that's completely his own – borne out with incredible creative energy right from the very first note, and continuing through amazing territory with each new song on the set! There's some deft work on piano and electric harpsichord on the record – but there's lots more waves of dark textures and other tones – all to showcase Clementine's vocals, which are unlike any other singer we can think of. Benjamin's hardly just another voice with downtempo rhythms or modern production – as his lyrics are far richer, and his sound here already speaks volumes of his experiences on both the Paris and London scenes – although we're betting he's going to take the whole world by storm soon. Like nothing else you've ever heard – and we mean that in the best way possible – with songs that include "One Awkward Fish", "Farewell Sonata", "Better Sorry Than Asafe", "God Save The Jungle", "Phantom Of Aleppoville", "Paris Cor Blimey", "Jupiter", and "Ode From Joyce".

Zelia FonsecaO Terceiro Olho Da Abelha ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 15.99
Fantastic work from Zelia Fonseca – singer, songwriter, and acoustic guitarist – working here in a special space that reminds us of some of our favorite female talents from the Brazilian scene of the 60s and 70s! The sound isn't bossa, nor any sort of easy mode to label – a bit like Joyce in that Fonseca has created a special style of her own, one so unique, we'll beg her pardon for trying to use Joyce as a reference point in anything but the positive presence of her music. Instrumentation is relatively spare on most numbers – a bit of additional acoustic bass, percussion, or other elements – but even these small additions resonate beautifully, thanks to the power of Zelia in the lead – and the wonderfully resonant style of recording. Titles include "No Ar", "Coracao Abelha", "Fora Da Rede", "Amoramento", "Trilha Do Mel", and "Baile Do Desassossego". CD

Ted HarrisTed Harris Presents More Giants Of Jazz ... LP
Harris & Dyer, 1982. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A really wonderful little album – a session of indie soul jazz from the early 80s, and proof that quality straight jazz recordings were still being made in the underground! Harris himself is the leader of the session – which features a loosely shifting ensemble of players that includes Hank Edmonds on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, Vernel Fournier on drums, Richard Williams on trumpet, Charles Williams on alto, and Kiane Zawadi on trombone – all players with credentials on better-known recordings, working here in an informal setting that really captures the sort of energy they must have had working in a small group setting at the time. The album's got a few great originals that really step out nicely – "Song For Joyce", "Lo's Delight", and "Rhonda" – all of which have a nicely grooving, but easygoing quality – one that brings out some especially nice notes in Harris' raspy work on tenor and baritone. Other tracks include "When Sunny Gets Blue", "Hey There", and "Stella By Starlight". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Carlyne (France), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A totally cool session of avant Parisian jazz – assembled by the great Andre Hodeir, whose Jazz Et Jazz is one of the best modernist jazz efforts from postwar France. The work attempts to set music to the writings of James Joyce – and it features the voices of Nicole Croisille and Monique Aldebert, plus the musicians Pierre Michelot on bass, Bernard Lubat on vibes, Daniel Humair on drums, Michel Portal and Pierre Gossez on saxes, and Roger Guerin on trumpet.

A beautiful jazzy album – with a mixture of guitar and voice that greatly recalls the best work of Joyce. Marlui plays guitar, and sings in a voice that's a bit deeper than Joyce, but which also has her same sense of freedom and lyrical beauty. The record's a tough one to find, and it includes many nice tracks like "No Pilar", "Olho D'Agua", and "Marimbondo". Backing is by the Academia De Dancas group, with Maro Senise, Zeca Assumpcao, and Egberto Gimonti! LP, Vinyl record album

Cbarra/Rob (Brazil), 2003. Used ... $19.99
Always-inventive work from Hermeto Pascoal – an excellent recording that crackles with all the energy and insanity of his best earlier albums! The record shifts effortlessly between jazzy fusion and more experimental instrumentation – a skittish assortment of sounds and rhythms that fit together surprisingly well, dancing with life and creativity that are never diminished. As with much of Hermeto's work, there's a heck of a lot going on here, and the album's as rewarding on repeated listens as it is ear-catching on the first one! Titles include "Joyce", "Taynara", "Celso", "Taiane", "Airan", "Ailin", and "Victor Assis Brasil". CD

SimoneSimone (1972) ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1972. Near Mint- ... $26.99
Wonderful work from Simone – one of her first albums ever, done in a style that's quite different than most of her later work! There's a personal, intimate quality to the record that's really amazing – one that has some of the power of Maria Bethania's work from this time, but which are sweetened by some warmer arrangements from the legendary Maestro Gaya. Gaya's relatively restrained on the record – and mostly uses gentle acoustic instrumentation, plus a few electric touches – all to couch Simone's vocals in a really dark sort of sound. There's a few Joyce-ish touches at times – and the album's a really tremendous little album, easily one of her greatest ever! Titles include a stunning version of "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", plus the tracks "Charada", "Encontro Marcado", "Caminho Do Sol", "Quero", "Morena", and "Bandeira Branca". LP, Vinyl record album
(This appears to be a later pressing – possibly from the 80s. Cover has a small rip and a small bit of tape – but this is a very nice copy overall!)

Toquio Bossa TrioBrazilian Voices ... CD
Ahora Corp (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $26.99
A great bossa combo from Tokyo – and one who get help from a few Brazilian artists too – including the lovely Joyce, whose vocals really make one song sparkle! The core sound is already great enough, though – bossa piano jazz, but maybe a bit more laidback and expressive than the Brazilian groups of the 60s – rhythms slightly slower at times, and more lyrical lines on piano – but all with that sense of space between the notes that really makes the music more bossa than straight jazz! Joyce sings on "Palpite Infelize", guitarist Dudu Salinas plays on "Berimbau" and "Onde Andaras" – and Valeria Oliveira guests on "Na Lama Na Lapa". Other tracks include "Rio", "Feitico Da Vila", "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce", "Canto De Ossanha", and "Nada Sera Como Antes". CD

Venus All StarsVenus Jazz Night – Isola Jazz Festival ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99
A beautiful live performance – recorded in Italy, but by a group of musicians who record for Japan's Venus Records label – easily one of the classiest jazz imprints of the past decade or two! And as a further twist, a number of the artists here are American – which makes the whole thing a great trans-national performance, handled with energy to match! Yet even without all of that pedigree, the music is wonderful in and of itself – long tracks that seem to bring even more of an edge to the usual Venus presentation – especially in the rhythmic department, which can sometimes be a bit more subtle on the label's studio recordings. The group features lots of heavy work on the bottom – bassists Aldo Zunino and Nicola Barbon, drummers Roberto Facchinetti and Byron Landham, and percussionist Ernesttico – and strong solos are by Jerry Weldon on tenor and Massimo Farao on piano. There's also a few vocal moments – with singers who include Daria Toffali, Joyce Yuille, and Denise King – and titles include "Estrada Branca", "Theme From Mash", "Get Up", "September Song", "Sunny", "Triste", "O Amor Em Paz", and "Teach Me Tonight".

Profile, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99 24.98
The Profile Records label may be best-remembered as the initial home of Run DMC – but back in the day, the company was one of the top imprints on the New York scene – and one of the few who could be a bit bigtime, yet still keep the right sort of ears to the ground! The selection here certainly lives up to that legacy – as the music is filled with some overlooked treasures, mixed with a few key classics – all to serve up a perfect portrait of the hip hop underground as it was really breaking out and moving up! Titles include "Genius Rap" by Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, "Whip Rap" by Disco Four, "Word Of Mouth" by King Kut, "A Fly Guy" by Pebblee Poo, "Fresh" by Fresh 3 MCs, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K-Rob, "Nightmares" by Dana Dane, "Get Off My Tip" by Masterdon Committee, "Lies Lies" by Rap-O-Matic, "It's My Beat" by Sweet Tee & Jazzy Joyce, "Drag Rap" by The Showboys, "Here Comes That Beat" by Pumpkin & The Profile All-Stars, and "Sucker MCs (Krush Groove 1)" by Run-DMC.

Mr. Bongo have put together the set to benefit the unfortunate children in a culture that they've helped bring to the world in a better light – and as with all Mr. Bongo titles, the quality is excellent, and the set's filled with some of the best recent Brazilian recordings around!

VariousTechnicolor Paradise – Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Delights (3CD set) ... CD
Numero, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 34.98
An insane new chapter in the mighty legacy of the Numero Group – not the rare soul, obscure psych, or underground folk the label has covered with other releases – but instead a huge batch of under-discovered gems from the exotica scene of the postwar years – essentially the farther reaches of the bigger scene that had stars like Martin Denny and Les Baxter in the spotlight! In case you're not hip, the exotica groove is kind of a hipper take on the Pacific Islands sounds – not mainstream Hawaiian music, but instead usually small combo material that has lots of percussion mixed with electric instrumentation, either on guitar or keyboards – set to imagined themes of life in the south seas, often in a very cool mix of jazz and dreamy modes. The music here is every bit as well-researched and deeply-dug as that on other Numero compilations – and it's fascinating to hear just how many folks were influenced by the huge exotic movement of the late 50s – and were motivated to turn out their own takes on the music, sometimes with styles that rivaled that of the big records of the time – sometimes with very weird and offbeat modes that are even more striking! As always with Numero, the presentation is superb – a huge set of notes with an equally large amount of music – all served up in a mighty handsome package, with work by Bill & Jean Bradway, The Shelltones, The Voodoos, The Jaguars, Jerry & The Catalinas, The Gems, The Blazers, Chayns, The Palatons, Red Harrison & His Zodiacs, The Melody Mates, The Monzas, Carmen, Darla Hood, The Baton Of Andre Brummer, Joan Joyce Trio, The Castiles, The Potted Palm, Don Sargent & His Buddies, Clyde Derby, Chico Jose, Arnie Derksen & Chise, The Slaves, Bruce Norman Quintet, and many more.

Edu Passeto and Gui Tavares have this unique vibe that maybe reminds us a bit of some of the Quarto Records material at the end of the 60s – and a warmth that might put them somewhere in the territory of Joyce – but, as with so many one of a kind Brazilian records from the golden years, there's something going on here that's very much its own – and which makes this obscure indie treasure the kind of record you'll keep going back to over the years, finding something new every time.

Blue Note, 1958/1962/1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great music at a great price – 3 of Cannonball's best albums in one package! First up is Something Else, a landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day! Titles include "Somethin' Else", "One For Daddy-O", and a nice moody take on "Dancing In The Dark". Next up is Cannonball's Bossa Nova! Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. It's here now, though, and the record's a real treat – especially at this price! Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". Plus, the CD also features bonus single versions of "Corcovado" and "Clouds"! Last up Is Mercy Mercy Mercy. If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long soulful groove, with gutbucket solos from the 3 above-mentioned players, and tight live production by a young David Axelrod. Titles include "Sticks", "Hippodelphia", "Sack O Woe", and the classic "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" – a jazz theme that you'll recognize instantly! CD

The record's an incredible blend of rootsy percussion, raspy guitar, and tripped-out production – all delivered with an instrumental sensibility that's even more sophisticated than before, and a lyrical interplay that's really amazing – extremely poetic at points, even if you can't understand the language! As with Gal Costa in the early 70s, Gilberto Gil manages to keep some of the best experimental elements of his music burning bright, even after the collapse of the Tropicalia movement – and as with some earlier Tropicalia gems, this album features some great work on bass and guitar from Lanny Gordin, not to mention drums and percussion from Tutty Moreno, who's better known for his later work with Joyce. Tracks include "Back In Bahia", "Expresso 2222", "Oriente", "Chiclete Com Banana", "Pipoca Moderna", and "O Sonho Acabou". CD

✨✧ Edu LoboTempo Presente ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound – but always in a way that's never commercial or slick at all – and which instead realizes this complicated jazzy vibe that comes through even better with this instrumentation than it did during the bossa nova years! Lobo's vocals have a quality that's mature, yet really personal too – and the album's a real testament to his great songwriting skills over the years – even on the few instrumental tracks. Joyce guests on one track, as does Dorival Caymmi – and the set also features some backing vocals from Boca Livre. Titles include "Tempo Presente", "Rei Morto, Rei Posto", "Quase Sempre", "Balada De Outono", and "Dono Do Lugar". CD

✨✧ Roberto NascimentoRoberto Nascimento ... LP
Amazon/Tapecar, 1975. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A wonderful little album – sweet jazzy MPB from Roberto Nascimento, a lost record that we're very happy got reissued! We'll be honest and say that we didn't know anything about this one in the past – but we really enjoy the record for its warm grooves and gently soulful vocals. The overall sound is somewhere in the mode of Lo Borges, but there's some interesting, almost Joyce-like guitar overtones that give it a different feel than you might expect. Titles include "Lero Lero", "Se Eu Errei", "Tema De Vania", "Voltei", and "El Saltamontes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SimoneCigarra ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great early album by Simone – a set that's very up close and personal – with the sort of intimate feel that we love in music by Joyce! Simone's vocals are nice and light – floating dreamily over backing from a small combo that has a lightly jazzy feel, plus some occasional larger orchestrations from Paulo Cezar Willcox. Elements of the Milton Nascimento generation definitely come into play here – but there's also a looser, less majestic quality to the music too. Gilberto Gil, Luiz Gonzaga Jr, and Nelson Angelo all make guest appearances on the record – and titles include "Cigarra", "Coisas De Balada", "Petunia Reseda", "Medo De Amar No 2", and "As Curvas Da Estrada De Santos". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mario AdnetJobim Jazz ... CD
Adventure Music, 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jazz versions of classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim – all done by a group arranged and directed by guitarist Mario Adnet, and featuring guest work from Joyce, Helio Delmiro, Romero Lumbambo, and others! The sound here is really fresh – not merely just a reworking of Jobim's original ideals, but a recasting of them in lightly arranged modes that often take on the shapes, colors, and textures of work by Moacir Santos – styles that are warm, but often have some sharper edges underneath, thanks to great interplay between the instruments. Bits of horns, guitar, piano, and percussion all come together with a tremendous sense of grace – and titles include "Tema Jazz", "Sue Ann", "Domingo Sincopado", "So Danco Samba", "Paulo Voo Livre", "Polo Pony", and "Bate Boca".

✨✧ Caesar FrazierInstinct ... CD
Doodlin, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album in many years from Caesar Frazier – the organist you might know from his early 70s funk classics on Westbound Records – still very much at the top of his game in this small combo set! Frazier's very well-recorded here – given the care and respect that we love from the Doodlin label and its handling of Hammond organ giants – and Caesar's deft work on the keys is heard in the company of Lyle Link on tenor and soprano sax, Jacques Lesure on guitar, and Leon Joyce on drums – a nice tight combo who really give the organ plenty of room to groove! Frazier has a more standard organ jazz vibe here than on his earlier records – almost a return to roots that he never put on any other album – served up on titles that include "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Night In Tunisia", "Street Of Dreams", "You will Know", "Thieves In The Temple", "Don't Misunderstand", and two versions of "Purposeful", one that stretches out past the 12 minute mark!

Bang Ya Head Entertainment, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Raw and no nonsense, but still soulfully-inspired hip hop from veterans MED & Guilty Simpson – who've long since come out of the shadows of MED's onetime producer-collaborator Madlib and Guilty's onetime producer-collaborator J Dilla as as solid headliners to say the least – and sound pretty great as a duo! The producers here are top notch, too – including Mndsgn, Black Milk, Exile and Wajeed – and titles include "Pie" feat Joyce Wrice, "The Weight" (Parts 1 & 2), "Face Down" and "Life's Good" feat Blu & J Mitchell and "Ain't Gotta Brag" – plus instrumental & acapella versions of "Pie", the "Life's Good" instrumental and "Face Down" acapella.

Adventure Music, 2010. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful batch of work from pianist Jovino Santos Neto – a very wide range of duets, spread out over one CD recorded in the US, and another in Brazil! Neto's sound here is quite rich, and quite varied – changing up nicely to fit the mood of the artist he's paired with on each track – a great range of talents that runs from Brazilian artists like Joyce, Joao Donato, Airto, Paula Morelenbaum, and Monica Salmaso – to American musicians and singers like Joe Locke, Tom Lellis, Gretchen Parlato, and Bill Frisell! Titles include "Aquelas Coisas Todas", "Insensatez", "Cruzando O Sertao", "Ahie", "Sonora Garoa", "Feira De Mangaio", "April Child", and "Gloria". CD

B-Boy/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tall, Dark, & Handsome may not be one of the best-remembered crews from the 80s – but they've got a fresh, playful approach that really keeps things interesting! These guys really remind us of the energy that the right group of MCs could bring to a party back in the day – yet they've also got a nice sense of complexity in their approach too – sometimes all falling in on a word or rhyme, ala early Beastie Boys – sometimes trading back and forth in a great way, ala Nice & Smooth! There's definitely a sense of humor here – as you might guess from their name – but there's also a raw Bronx-based approach that's hardly a joke. Titles include "Call It What You Wanna", "When Money OnThe Mix", "Fake Fly Girl", "Joyce", "We Don't Need Crack", "The Bronx Is Back", "Tall Dark & Handsome", "Last Of The Great Ones", and "My Love Tune".

✨✧ Mostly Other People Do The KillingLoafer's Hollow ... CD
Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from a group who never fail to blow our minds – and who also seem to try out something different with each new record, yet never falter at all in their progress forward! Mostly Other People Do The Killing may have one of the longest names in jazz, but they've also got a brash approach that really lives up to the cockiness of their name – a confident step in whatever direction they want, which always leads them down the best path. This time around, they're mixing both modern and trad jazz expressions with literary inspiration from writers who include Thomas Pynchon, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Cormac McCarthy, and David Foster Wallace – each of whom are listed as reference points for certain songs – which are based around snippets of their text, then transformed into a musical mode. The instrumentation is a very offbeat take on trad – with Jon Irabgon on tenor and sopranino sax, Steven Bernstein on trumpet and slide trumpet, Dave Taylor on bass trombone, Brandon Seabrook on banjo and electronics, Kevin Shea on drums, Ron Stabinsky on piano, and leader Moppa Elliott on bass. Titles include "Kilgore", "Hi Nella", "Honey Hole", "Bloomsberg", "Glen Riddle", "Mason & Dixon", and "Five". CD

✨✧ Moacir SantosOuro Negro ... CD
Adventure Music, 1960s/1970s/1990s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work by one of Brazil's greatest arrangers ever! Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too! CD

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A whoppingly huge survey of the role of female talents in jazz – not just the usual singers who are so often put at the foreground of the female jazz canon, but also a range of instrumentalists and female jazz groups – all pulled together here in material from the earliest days of jazz on up to the start of the 60s! The package features one full disc on piano players – 23 tracks by artists as diverse as Joyce Collins, Jutta Hipp, Terry Pollard, Toshiko Akioshi, Lil Armstrong, Mary Lou Williams, Dorothy Donegan, and Patti Brown – a very well-selected batch that includes some great surprises! The next disc features musicians on a range of instruments – from trumpeter Clora Bryant, to organist Shirley Scott, alto saxophonist Vi Redd, harpist Dorothy Ashby, and trombonist Melba Liston – plus some more obscure names as well! The last CD is a great overview of all-girl bands, with an especially strong focus on the swing years – with work by The Hip Chicks, Ina Ray Hutton, Ivy Benton, Mary Lou Williams, Beryl Booker, and The International Sweethearts Of Rhythm. As usual with Disques Fremeaux, the package is huge – 70 titles in all, plus detailed notes in French and English! CD
