Don Cherry & Latif KhanMusic/Sangam ... LP
Europa, 1978/1982. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent album from Cherry – recorded in Paris in 1978, and featuring duets with tabla player Latif Khan. The sound is spare an unencumbered by any additional backing or electronics – but there's an overall groove to the record that's really really nice. Tablas set the rhythm, and Cherry solos over the top on trumpet, bamboo flute, keyboards, and gong. One of his most effective jazz/world crossover albums – and with the tracks "One Dance", "Air Mail", "Untitled", and "Sangam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing!)

Dave Hoekstra, with Chaka Khan & Paul NatkinPeoples Place – Soul Food Restaurants and Reminiscences from the Civil Rights Era to Today (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago Review Press, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A totally wonderful little book – one that traces the relationship between culture, politics, and soul food during the Civil Rights era – a long legacy that continues to have strong local power all these many years later! The book is very lovingly done – rich in history, and filled with full color photographs, both contemporary and vintage – as author Dave Hoekstra surveys key soul food emporiums from cities that include Memphis, Chicago, New Orleans, Washington, New York, Detroit, and Atlanta – with individual chapters on Ben's Chili Bowl, Sylvia's Restaurant, Baker's Keyboard Lounge, Dooky Chase's, Sweetie Pie's, Africanne On Maine, Original Soul Vegetarian, New Bethel Baptist Church Kitchen, Ruby's Restaurant, Marvin, The Four Way, and many other storied sites – just our memory of which is enough to make our stomachs' rumble! Hoekstra brings the same care to the subject that he's used in his many years of newspaper work – and the book also features an introduction from Chaka Khan, new photos from Paul Natkin, and even a few recipes from the restaurants too. 224 pages, full color, hardcover.

Chaka KhanWhat Cha' Gonna Do For Me (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Big Break (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $14.99
Damn wonderful solo work from Chaka Khan – a record that holds onto all the best funky elements of her 70s music with Rufus – but also finds a way to put the lady even more strongly out front! There's maybe a bit more of a clubby vibe here than before, but never in a cheesy or commercial way – as the mighty Arif Mardin is at the production helm, and arguably does an even better job with Chaka than on his classic productions for Aretha Franklin! The vocals soar out beautifully, but the grooves are every bit as great – with these warm jazzy touches that make the album instantly seductive – and a level of sophistication that's kept this one strong for many many years. Titles include the wonderful stepper "Any Old Sunday", plus "We Got Each Other", "We Can Work It Out", "Night Moods", "What Cha Gonna Do For Me", and "Father He Said" – plus "I Know You, I Live You", a big Chicago house cut from the old days. Features bonus tracks – "Only Once", "Lover's Touch", and "I Know You I Love You (rmx)". CD

Chaka Khan & Jazz All-StarsEchoes Of An Era ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good ... $3.99
A really unique album for Chaka Khan – one in which she teams up with a host of jazz artists to craft a classic-styled set of vocals! Given that Chaka was at the height of her 80s groove solo career at the time of this one, the move is a surprising one – but also a great chance for Chaka to show that she has a lot more to offer than just pop chops, as she sounds pretty darn great scatting on these classic jazz numbers. And as proof that the set was definitely a serious jazz effort, Chaka's got a great lineup on the album – a group that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Joe Henderson on tenor, Chick Corea on piano, and Lenny White on drums. Titles include "Them There Eyes", "All Of Me", "Take The A Train", "Hire Wire", "The Aerialist", and "I Hear Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve KhanTightrope ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Beautiful fusion from guitarist Steve Khan – one of those great 70s players who could play things tight, yet still keep an edge! The album's got a well-produced groove – the same sort of soulful undercurrent you'd get in other Columbia fusion sets of the period – yet Khan's guitar has a bit more rasp than most, less of the sanded-down, clean-toned notes that you'd get from some of his contemporaries. Bob James produced, and you can certainly hear his ear on some of the keyboard parts – especially the sweet Fender Rhodes, handled by both James and Don Grolnick. Titles include "Some Punk Funk", "Darlin Darlin Baby", "The Big Ones", "Star Chamber", "Tightrope", and "Soft Summer Breeze". CD

Ustad Ali Akbar KhanEmperor Of Melody ... CD
El (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
There's a definite sense of melody on these vintage recordings from Ali Akbar Khan – tunes that ring out with lots of spare sitar, and virtually no other instrumentation at all! The titles here are all quite long – mellow, introspective ragas that have a very meditative feel – and which, in some way, offer up a looser approach to the form than some of the more widely-circulated recordings of Indian music at the time – even at the few spots when tablas and other instrumentation stimulate the sound a bit more. The first half of the set features Khan's music for the film Devi – on titles that include "Raga Todi", "Raga Lajwanti", and "Raga Bhairavi" – and tracks on the second half include "Raga Nat Bhairav", "Raga Asavari", and "Raga Jaijaiwanti".

Brecker BrothersBottom Line Archive Series 1976 ... CD
Bottom Line, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Wonderful live work from the legendary Brecker Brothers – cut at a time when the duo were still totally hard and funky – maybe even more so here than on their studio albums of the time! The live setting really brings out a crackle in the group – lots of funky rhythms at the bottom,a nd these breakout solos from Randy on trumpet and Michael on tenor – as well as a young David Sanborn on alto, Steve Khan on guitar, and Don Grolnick on Fender Rhodes and Hammond! Most vocals are kind of chorus chants by the whole group instead of a solo singer – vamping strongly in this way that really fits the groove nicely. Titles include "Rocks", "Cactus", "Sneakin Up Behind You", "It Took A Long Time", "Keep It Steady", "Night Flight", and "Jungle Walk". CD

Tappan Zee/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. Used ... $9.99
A pair of sweet funky fusion gems from Mark Colby – back to back on a single CD! Serpentine Fire is an overlooked gem from Bob James' Tappan Zee empire of the 70s – that label that provided the perfect platform for artists to grow a bit more after the CTI years! Reedman Mark Colby is a newcomer to this scene, but hits a groove that's instantly in the best CTI/Kudu mode – with funky jazz backings that often have that laidback, spacious style that's more soulful than jamming fusion – served up by players who include Bob James on Fender Rhodes and piano, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, Steve Gadd on drums, and Hiram Bullock on some electric guitar. Colby himself plays tenor and soprano sax – and titles include a nice remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "Serpentine Fire" – plus "King Tut", "Renegade", "On & On", and "Daydreamer". On One Good Turn, reedman Mark Colby really comes into his own – crafting sweet lines on tenor and soprano sax, in modes that extend previous 70s fusion work from artists like Stanley Turrentine or Grover Washington Jr! Like both of those giants, Colby gets great backing here in a spacious electric style that allows plenty of room for the solos in the lead – with artists who include Bob James and Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, and Mike Mainieri on vibes. Titles include "Capativa", "Village Zoo", "Peace Of Mind", "Skat Talk", and "Macbeth". CD

Steve Dahl with Dave Hoekstra & Paul NatkinDisco Demolition – The Night Disco Died (hardcover) ... Book
Curbside Splendor, 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 34.95
The story of one of the most legendary nights in Chicago music – told by the man who made it all happen! Disco Demolition was conceived as a one-off joke about the popularity of disco music in the late 70s – but the event, which involved attendees bringing records for destruction to a White Sox game on a Friday night – soon became a touchstone for racial and cultural tensions, with a legacy that's lasted far longer than anyone might have expected! Radio DJ Steve Dahl – who created and headlined the event – presents his story, and a bit of an apology, alongside other important voices on the Chicago scene – all given a sense of structure by journalist Dave Hoekstra, and illustrated with amazing photos of the event by Paul Natkin. The photos alone are worth the price of the book – beautiful black and white images that really get at the grittiness of Chicago at the time – and which are also helpful alongside the larger writing that contextualizes the city, the music scene, Chicago radio, and the south side in 1979. Bob Odenkirk provides the introduction – and the book also features recollections from folks like Rick Nielsen, Jim Peterik, Dennis DeYoung, Chaka Khan, and other Chicago music figures. 194 pages, hardcover, with lots of black and white photos.

✨✧ Eric DolphyIllinois Concert ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $6.99
Amazing avant garde material from Dolphy – and never issued before in any form! The concert was recorded in 1963 at the University of Illinois, and it features some of the most "out" playing we've ever heard from Dolphy. He's backed by a trio comprised of Herbie Hancock, Eddie Khan, and JC Moses – and the main solos are on flute, alto, and bass clarinet, which Dolphy plays to amazing effect! 6 tracks feature the core quartet playing alone with Dolphy, and a 7th features backing by a larger group comprised of University Of Illinois students, including a very young Cecil Bridgewater! This is definitely the kind of lost material we're happy to see unearthed – and it's packaged and notated with the usual high Blue Note level of quality. Titles include "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "South Street Exit", "Iron Man", "Red Planet", and "GW". CD

Yet here, Arif's out on his own in an instrumental setting – working in this very hip, very groovy late 60s mode that ties together all the best currents happening on Atlantic Records at the time – soul music, mod jazz, and even a bit of Latin and Brazil – all wrapped up into a sparkling set of arrangements from the man himself! Titles include a number of covers, but redone by Mardin in a really great way – and tracks include the great original "Midnight Walk" – plus "Glass Onion", "Sympathy For the Devil", "Walk On By", "Listen Here", and "Ain't No Way".

Polydor, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Wonderful work from the great Ellen McIllwaine! Ellen's certainly not a soul artist – but she's got a particularly soulful approach to folk rock – one that's made her a favorite of groovers worldwide in the past few decades, thanks to a big push from Gilles Peterson, and the club scene in Tokyo and Germany! The approach on this record is kind of like a mixture between Chaka Khan and Joni Mitchell – lots of upbeat grooves, mixed with jazzy acoustic guitar and some wonderfully soaring vocals – in a style that needs to be heard to be fully understood. The standout cut is the amazing "Jimmy Jean", a soaring jazzy dance cut with unbelievable vocals – and other nice ones include "Sliding", "Ain't No Two Ways", and "All To You".

The rest of the lineup is equally great – with alto from David Sanborn, more horns from The Brecker Brothers, and even a bit of work from Steve Khan – all fusion superstars in their own right, but who never eclipse Esther's lead. Titles include a good version of Grover Washington's "Mr Magic" – with the same funky undercurrent as the original – plus the tracks "One Night Affair", "I Can Stand A Little Rain", "Hurtin House", "Turn Around Look At Me", and a semi-hit version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes".

Dizzy ReeceAsia Minor ... LP
New Jazz, 1962. Very Good ... $149.99
A rare treasure from British trumpeter Dizzy Reece – quite different than his albums at the time for Blue Note! Dizzy's playing here with a style that has a fair bit of exotic touches – not entirely in the Yusef Lateef mode, but definitely with a similar blend of hardbop, soul jazz, and some of the Eastern-styled themes that you might expect from an album entitled Asia Minor. His trumpet is still firmly in the lead, but it's boldness is inflected by some great work from reed players Cecil Payne on baritone and Joe Farrell on tenor sax and flute – making a young appearance here, but already showing a great talent for soulful exploration. The rest of the group features Hank Jones on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Charlie Persip on rhythm – and all players are surprisingly well matched, and led strongly by Reece through a visionary set that includes the titles "The Story Of Love", "The Shadow Of Khan", "Yamask", "Spiritus Parkus", and "Ackmet".

Great later work from Rufus – working here without Chaka Khan on vocals, but sounding even jazzier as a result! There almost seems to be more emphasis on the instrumentation than before – and the album's got a warmly funky groove that definitely carries on the 70s Rufus tradition, but cleans things up a bit for the 80s generation – especially lean on the rhythms and the keyboards! Tony Maiden and David Wolinski handle the vocals, often in a compressed way that's mixed right down in the music – but the real charm here comes from the rhythms and the sweet jazzy licks in the grooves. Titles include "Tonight We Love", "Can I Show You", "What Is It", "Afterwards", "We Got The Way", "Party Til You're Broke", "Love Is Taking Over", and "Secret Love". LP, Vinyl record album

An obscure vocalist who did some background work and cut this one and only album as a solo star, Sue Ann was one of a few decent modern soul acts to record for Warner Brothers during the early 70s, when the label seemed to be making a brief bid for the R&B market. The album's got a sound that's a bit in the Deniece Williams mode, with a little bit of Chaka Khan and Minnie Riperton vocalizing, and some decent arrangements that have an 80s groove moder sound to them. Tracks include "Sweet Talk", "Close Dance", "Don't Throw It All Away", "I Wanna Be The One", "Really Not That Ready", and "My Baby, My". LP, Vinyl record album

The group's kind of a mixed vocal/instrumental one – an ensemble that features equal emphasis on vocal harmonies and instrumental musings – all with a sound that's quite unique! Some tracks are instrumental, others have the vocals right up front – especially those that feature the contributions of the Men On A Mission quartet – a vocal group that's steeped in gospel influences, but more directed towards the spiritual jazz leanings of Lancaster and Jamal. The rest of the lineup includes percussion, piano, and additional vocals from Reverend Joe Craddock – and the set bills itself as "a devotional journey through jazz history from Africa to Coltrane" – which is a pretty good description of the set! Titles include "Dahomey Dance", "It's Gonna Rain", "Follow Me", "Rhythm In The Dark", "Sweet Evil", "Christian Automobile", "Hard Times", and "The Creator Has A Master Plan". CD

Sony (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
A strange and wonderful mix of tracks – one that goes past the familiar disco you might expect from the title, and which also includes some crossover pop tracks from the 80s – all in a mix of rhythms that easily moves between mellow, midtempo, and more upbeat grooving! The selection here is by DJ Osshy, who's unabashedly in love with 80s pop – which means he can effortlessly lay a soul tune alongside an AOR number, and get some really great results in the process – especially given that some of these tracks are ones that we'd normally expect to find on such a collection. The 2CD package features 36 titles in all – divided into a "bitter side" and a "sweet side" – and tracks include "I Miss You" by Klymaxx, "After The Love Has Gone" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Sweet Baby" by Stanley Clarke & George Duke, "A Woman Needs Love" by Ray Parker Jr, "One On One" by Hall & Oates, "There'll Be Sad Songs" by Billy Ocean, "Almost Paradise" by Mike Reno & Ann Wilson, "Drive" by The Cars, "Reality" by Richard Saunderson, "Ooo La La" by Teena Marie, "Sara" by Starship, "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye, "Between The Sheets" by Isley Brothers, "It Will Be Alright" by Airplay, "Baby I Love Your Way/Freebird Medley" by Will To Power, "Through The Fire" by Chaka Khan, "Babe" by Styx, and "You Got It All" by The Jets.

VariousDisco Deutschland Disco – Disco, Funk & Philly Anthems From Germany 1975 to 1980 ... CD
Marina (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A German disco extravaganza – and a much-needed look at one of the strongest 70s club outlets next to the US! At first glance, the mix of Germany and disco might seem like an unlikely fit – but the German scene gave the world some key disco hits back in the 70s, as well as a huge variety of underground and lesser-known gems! The German approach was often a bit heavier on electronics than the American one – modes that were slightly pulled from prog and fusion that was bubbling around earlier in the decade, then fused into a cleaner, leaner, more rhythmic groove – and often topped with vocals in English, sometimes by American vocalists living overseas. Even the older German instrumentalists got in on the act – and the 70s saw both jazz and easy players hitting a disco groove with a new approach to their music! This great collection – put together by the folks who gave us The In Kraut – showcases all these aspects of the scene, and brings together a few hits with a lot more obscure gems – many of which we've never seen on this side of the Atlantic before. Titles include "Opium" by Peter Thomas, "Philodendron" by Veronika Fischer, "Illegal Toys" by Alfie Khan Sound Orchestra, "Lovemachine" by Supermax, "You've Got The Power (parts 1 & 2)" by Su Kramer, "Fashion Pack" by Amanda Lear, "Weider Zusammen" by Marianne Rosenberg, "Sex World" by Berry Lipman, "Get On The Funk Train (part 1)" by Munich Machine, "I Can't Move No Mountains" by James Last, "Treat Me Like A Woman" by Jackie Carter, "Feedback Brother" by Peter Herbholzheimer Rhythm Combination & Brass, "Disco Cisco" by Carsten Bohn's Bandstand, and "Love In A Sleeper" by Silver Convention.

Strata East/Manufactured, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare spiritual jazz by reed player Milton Marsh – one of the harder-to-find albums on Strata East – and one of just a couple incredible records to Marsh's name! Obscurity aside, this is prime Strata East – with some sprawling moments in a larger band formation that go just far out enough, but an overall approach that's pretty inside, very much in the label's strong 70s soul jazz tradition. There's a pretty large cast of players in action, including some legendary ones like saxophonist David Ware, percussionist Greg Bandy, Cedric Lawson on piano and others. Titles include "Vonda's Tune", the incredible "Monism" with its spoken word excerpt from Hazrat Inayat Khan's Sufi Message, nicely read by Marsh himself over an amazing mix of soulful strings and tense interplay, plus "Metamorphosis", "Community Music", "Sabotage 3 Preparations" and "Ode to Nzinga".

Really tremendous stuff – and kind of a genre-defining compilation – one that will ship our listening for years to come! We've heard a bit of 70s Iranian music before, but this overstuffed package really opens up our ears – to a range of funky, freaky sounds that go way beyond just the kind of unusual psyche that folks have been passing around for years – and more into the kind of amazing and unreal sounds you might expect to find more in Indian music of the time! As with some Indian cuts, there's a wicked blend of Western funk and Eastern exoticism going on here – while others have a haunting feel that's a bit more regional, especially the vocal numbers – and throughout it all, the set continues to deliver some really wonderful surprises, with a track list that's very well thought out – and supported by great notes too. Titles include "Baanoye Sahar Aavaaz" by Soli, "Jodayee" by Afsar Shahidi, "Nefrin Nameh" by Dariush, "Ki Bood" by Neli, "Gharibaneh" by Beti, "Dokhtar Khoshgel" by Aghassi, "Khana Khana" by Habib Mohebian, "Kavire Del" by Marjan, "Do Ta Cheshmoon" by Mahsati, and "Woman" by Shahram.

✨✧ Hongthong Dao-UdonBump Lam Phloen – Essential Hongthong Dao-Udon ... LP
EM (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
A beautiful Thai singer with a voice that maybe doesn't need any other instrumentation – given its incredibly haunting quality – but one who sounds even groovier once the music kicks in to play! The work here is mostly from the late 70s, but often has a feel that's really timeless – especially on those numbers that feature Hongthong floating out with almost no backing at all – and on other tracks, there's sort of groovy late 60s vibe – a feel that's more like Cambodian sounds from years before, with a groove that provides a really illuminating setting for the vocals. The collection is short, but really tremendous – ten revelatory tracks that will immediately show you there's still plenty of amazing music to discover on this planet! Titles include "Nong Ni Na", "Bump Lam Phloen", "Hongthong Khanong Lam", "Bo Mi Phi Thi Isan", "Isan", and "Sa-On Siang Phin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thievery CorporationTemple Of I & I ... CD
ESL, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Maybe one of the most sharp-edged albums in years from Thievery Corporation – if not ever – thanks to the presence of a fair bit of hip hop guest stars, in a large roster of talent that includes Mr Lif, Raquel Jones, Zee, Notch, Lou Lou Ghelichkhani, Shana Halligan, Elin Melgarejo, and Puma! The duo definitely have that classic approach to a groove that you'd know from their earlier work, but they've also moved way past the bossa, easy, and soundtrack references of before – to modes that embrace more 70s funk and soul, as well as vintage hip hop production – plus some Jamaican currents that you might guess from the album's title. Tracks include "Ghetto Matrix", "Strike The Root", "Love Has No Heart", "Lose To Find", "Weapons Of Distraction", "Fight To Survive", "Babylon Falling", and "Drop Your Guns". CD

Daniel ZamirAlive ... CD
Koren (Israel), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Fantastic work from Israeli saxophonist Daniel Zamir – one of the most popular jazz musicians in his home nation, and an incredibly spiritual force who just seems to get more and more powerful every time he hits the recording studio! This live performance is wonderful – with Zamir stretching out on soprano sax in these really long, beautifully-crafted lines – full of joy and spirit, and with a unique voice that could well make him one of the more important global reed talents in years to come! You might know Zamir from his early work with John Zorn, during a period when he was living in New York – but in the decade since he's returned to his homeland, his sound has gotten infinitely stronger, and really reaches a new height on this album – which mostly features Daniel in an instrumental mode, but also features a few surprising vocal performances as well. The tracks often have a modal energy that's perfect for the soprano sax – and titles include "The Five Levels Of The Soul", "Fifty Four", "Hatikvah", "Tithanei Elai", "Shir Hashomer", "Tzama Lecha Nafshee", and "Shir Gaagua Lekhan".

VariousNew Soul Heaven – A Collection Of Soul Delights ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2004. Used ... Just Sold Out!
New Soul, Nu Soul, or Neo Soul – it's all good to us – and this set goes a long way towards pulling together some of the best bits from the current soul underground of the past few years! The import package is a bit different than some of the American ones that have been floating around – as it features a nice blend of work that's only been issued on overseas labels – some of it by American artists that have yet to make a bigger splash over here, and some of it by overseas acts that sound equally nice in the smooth soul end of the spectrum! The CD's got 15 tracks in all – with titles that include "You Bring Joy" by Emerald Jade, "Journey" by Otis & Shugg, "Lifetime" by Khani Cole, "Can This Be Real" by Byron Woods, "You Gotta Go" by Mysti Day, "Cupid's Arrow" by Frank McComb, "Give It UP (rmx)" by Improm2 with Patrice Rushen, "Not Everyday" by Hofstone, "You Remind Me" by Ashley Taylor, "Make It Through The Night" by Alyson Williams, "Dream" by Carmen Rodgers, and "All You Need" by TC Carson.

✨✧ VariousSitar Beat Vol 2 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... LP
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A motherlode of Indian-styled funk – grooves that are heavy on the sitar, but which also feature a fair bit of American funk influences as well! The tracks are all pretty darn obscure, and most are actually from India – not copycat tracks from Europe and the US – and alongside the sitars, instrumentation also includes some great trumpet, moog, and keyboard bits too – sliding along the rhythms with a darkly groovy edge! Most numbers are from soundtracks – and have a definite soundtrack sort of feel – and although there's some vocals on the album, the main focus is clearly on the great instrumentation and super-heavy rhythms. Titles include "The Witness" by Babla & His Orchestra, "Everybody Dance With Me" by SD Narang, "Wade Karle Sanja" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Freak Out Music" by RD Burman, "Nigahon Ka Adaon Ka" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Tera Jasia Pyara Koi Nahin" by Usha Khanna, "Phir Teri Yaad" by Hemant Bhosle, "Butterfly (version two)" by Keith Kanga, "Dard E Dil" by Laxmikant Pyarelal, "Aaj Mera Dil" by RD Burman, and "Main Akeli Raat Jawan" by Ajit Singh.
