✨✧ KonKon & The Gang ... LP
BBE (UK), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A heady set of grooves from Kon – part of the Kon & Amir team you'll know from the famous series of compilations and mix tapes (both On and Off Track!) – stepping out here as a fantastically strong lead artist of his own, with help from a few key guests as well! The set's both a showcase for Kon's own music, and his ability to handle the grooves of others – sometimes with extra mixing skill, sometimes just through his own ability to reach out and bring great sounds together – as he did with his previous collections! The vibe here is a soulful take on club – very much in the spirit of the title and logo, which pay homage to Kool & The Gang – but given a contemporary vibe, in a way that's a nice update of the spirit of the classic cuts that Kon chose for the Off Track series on BBE. Titles include "Can't Get Enough" and "Awe Baby (Medlar rmx)" by Kon, plus "I Promise (Kon rework)" by Doc Daneeka feat Seven Davis Jr, "Do It Well" by Serge Gamesbourg, "Out Of My Head" by Bosq, "Hooked On Ya" by Caserta, "Back 2 Luv" by Eli Escobar feat Steven Klavier, and "I Like To Feel Your Eyes On Me When I Look Away" by Scott Thatmanmonkz featuring J Gordon.

VariousKon & Amir – Off Track Vol 1 – The Bronx ... LP
BBE (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 3LP ... $24.99 27.98
One of the hippest compilations we've heard in years – a treasure trove of rare grooves from legendary crate diggers Kon and Amir! The pair have been known for years from the massive beats in their On Track mixes, and from subsequent reissue singles – but this set has them moving firmly off track, for an even more obscure blend of tracks – all of which show us an even hipper side of the pair's tastes! Amir's selections here are especially great – a wealth of great jazz, Latin, and world-styled grooves – nearly all of which have never been reissued before. Kon's tracks are often a bit more clubby – and together with Amir's, they make for a wonderfully rounded compilation – one that cares little about its own premise or posturing, but works hard to put a wealth of under-discovered grooves on the market. Titles include "Esto Me Gusto" by Juan Demonio, "Tune For LN" by Larry Nozero, "Nestero Ti Patte" by Marius Cultier, "Holding On (Kon's edit)" by Darryl Douglas, "Destroy The Nihilist Picnic" by The London Experimental Jazz Quartet, "Soar" by Claudio Mederios, "Opiniao" by Zelia Barbosa, "Darling I Love You (Kon's edit)" by Jorge Santana, "When I Comes To Loving Me (Kon's edit)" by Executive Suite, "Steel City Disco (Kon's edit)" by Steel City Orchestra, "Country" by Adolphe Parillon, "Douga" by Quintette Guineenne, and "81" by Imp Express.

Columbia/Nature Sounds, 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ronnie Laws may have had the first hit version of "Always There", but Willie Bobo's is a great one too – with a slightly Latin tinge that takes the cut to a whole new level, adding in some extra percussion to make its jazz funk grooves stand up on end! Great pressing – with one side that replicates the original 12" promo mix – and another new funky mix by Kon! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Grand Slam with Gary Mudbone CooperFunk Cruisin' – The Neverending Voyage (includes bonus DVD) ... LP
TNT Productions (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99
A contemporary group from overseas, but one who've drank heavily from the George Clinton P-Funk brew of the 70s – and found a great way to bring the sound forward for the 21st Century! The work here is very much in the best late P-Funk mode – bassy, but never too uptight – played live with a great flourish that really shows the camaraderie of the group as a whole, and their love of trading licks back and forth with effortless ease! Much of the groove is instrumental – at times, vocals almost feel like an afterthought next to the instrumental jams – but Gary Mudbone Cooper, of P-Funk fame, does sing on a few tracks, as do other group members too. Titles include "Get On Down", "A Little Mo'Fun", "Camp Down", "Chillin With My People", "New Crack Swing", "Funky Juices", "Time 2 Get Paid", "Kon Air", "Drunk Cruisin", and "Soul Machine". Features a full concert DVD too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AntibalasAntibalas (with download) ... LP
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from one of the best funky combos anywhere – ever! Antibalas have certainly risen to fame in the years since we first heard their Afro-styled grooves – working famously in the Fela musical, and reaching generations of ears with their own brilliant records. Yet throughout it all, they've always stayed true to their sound – and, if anything, are even sharper, tighter, and funkier than before – all extremely adept not only at playing their instruments, but at hitting the right sort of sound to cut through all the BS that was holding back funky Afro grooves for years! Part of that sound comes from superb Daptone production by Gabriel Roth – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean and full of energy. But the core credit really goes to the group – who never cease to amaze us here – and continually come up with fresh sounds on their keyboards and horns – and inventive rhythms to match! Titles include "Dirty Money", "The Rat Catcher", "Ari Degbe", "Ibeji", "Sare Kon Kon", and "Him Belly No Go Sweet". LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early work from Yma Sumac – with that moody mix of other worldly vocals and semi-Latin instrumentation that made her a popular one with the early exotic crowd. Yma runs up and down the vocal scale, while Moises Vivanco leads the band in a set of crashing dramatic orchestrations with a Peruvian feel. Tracks include "Sunray Surita", "Mamallayi", "No Es Vida", "Ccori Canastitay", and "Kon Tiki". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSedayeh Del – Funk, Psychedelia, & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the last Western years of Iran – really incredible music that shows what a cultural crossroads the nation had become! While some might criticize the culture as embracing the west too strongly at the time, music like this is a great illustration of the way that the cognoscenti were really onto something unusual – able to weave together the local and the global in really cool ways – crafting funk and grooves that are unlike any thing happening in neighboring scenes at the time! The mix of regional and western modes is not unlike Turkish music from a few years before – but the styles here are also much more soul-based, with a range that flows between funk and club, and includes some instrumentation you'd never hear on an American record at all – a perfect complement for the echoey style of vocal recording used on many numbers. The package may well be the most compelling so far from this mighty cool label – and titles include "Kermani" by Zia, "Koolehbaar" by Shahrokh, "Mahigir" by Maziar, "Omadi" by Shoreh, "Tasvire Yek Fal" by Soli, "Be Man Tekyeh Kon" by Shamaizadeh, and "Avazekhian Na Avaz" by Farrokhzad.

A beautiful batch of tropical classics from the glory days of the American exotica scene – put together in a package that's every bit as seductive as the music! The set comes with a lovely 50 page booklet, filled with beautiful color images that work well with the music – that usual high Bear Family quality level we've come to expect! Tunes are well-chosen, too – way past the obvious – and cuts include "I Ha She" by Marais & Miranda, "Kon Tiki" by The Shadows, "House Of Bamboo" by Andy Williams, "Castaway" by Paul Page, "Aku Aku" by Martin Denny, "Taboo Tu" by Arthur Lyman, "Bamboo" by The Surfmen, "Pieces Of Eight" by Paul Page, "Hawaiian Eye" by Buddy Morrow, and "Hawaii Five O/Quiet Village" by Don Ho.

Harry Bloom/Todd Matshikiza/Pat WilliamsKing Kong – All African Jazz Opera ... LP
Decca (UK), Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Despite the colonialist overtones of the project – sort of the African equivalent to Porgy & Bess, at least in terms of authenticity – this groundbreaking musical was actually a crucial moment in the development of South African jazz. It's unfortunate that the package doesn't list the players in the ensemble – but we're certain that we hear Kippie Moketsi on sax, and most of the musical backings have a feel that reminds us a lot of early work by The Blue Notes, or Hugh Masekela. Features the instrumental groover "Kwela Kong", plus "In The Queue", "Death Song", "Damn Him", "Sad Times, Bad Times", and "The Earth Turns Over". LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Konitz, Dave Lambert, et al3/27/65 – Charlie Parker 10th Memorial Concert (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Limelight/Universal (Japan), 1965. Used Gatefold ... $18.99
Way more than the simple Charlie Parker tribute promised in the title! For starters, the set's got two of the best cuts by Gillespie's mid 60s group with James Moody – "Um-Hmmm" and "Groovin High" – both of which have Moody playing in an incredibly unbridled tone that's just great! Next up are Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge fronting a hip group with Billy Taylor on a long version of "Now's The Time". Taylor also makes an appearance on Dave Lambert's scatted vocal version of "Donna Lee", as well as on a large group medley of the tunes "Bird Watcher" and "Disorder At The Border". Finishing off the set is an amazing Lee Konitz solo version of "Blues For Bird", his own composition, played as a spare solo tune on alto! 9 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Rex KonaWild Orchids – Exotic Sounds Of Rex Kona & His Mandarins ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
Wonderful stuff – way more than just an easy instrumental album, and a great batch of exotic tunes with lots of jazzy touches! There's enough of the Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman influence here – but Rex and group take the sound a lot further, by playing like a true small combo, and swinging the tunes with a heck of a lot more jazz than you'd expect. Grooves are nice, and get quite Latiny at times – and the feel of the record almost reminds us of some of Bobby Montez work for Pacific Jazz in the late 50s. Titles include "Ginza Girl", "Sushi", "Patricia", "Wild Orchids", "Bird Train", "Bushi Bushi", and "Will He Like Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Kondi BandSalone ... CD
Strut (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Very cool sounds from a wonderful pairing of sources – the ancient African thumb piano and contemporary funky production – at a level that's almost a 21st Century update of the American 70s kalimba experiments by Phil Cohran and Earth Wind & Fire! There's moments here that definitely seem to evoke the latter's mix of kalimba and clubby grooves – but in a much more stripped-down way that puts the instrument strongly upfront, to carry most of the tune – while very tasteful beats and basslines set up a groove! The mode might sound hokey – and in the wrong hands it could be – but the approach is wonderful here, and very much in the best legacy of the older Afro Funk reissues we've loved from the Strut label. Titles include "Yeanoh", "Thank You Mama", "Belle Wahalla", "Titi Dem Too Service", "Don Don Mi Money", "Kondi Instrumental", "You Wan Married", "Thogolobea (LV rmx)", "Y'Alimamy (Chief Boima rmx)", and "Without Money No Family (Chief Boima rmx)".

Toshinori Kondo Tibetan Blue Air Liquid BandKhchyu Fuyuu ... CD
Art Union/Solid (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $22.99
Trumpeter Toshinori Kondo may have cut some avant-oriented material over the years – but this set is a different sort of record – one that's cut with his Tibetan Blue Air Liquid Band, in a playful mix of rhythms, tones, and jazz! The approach is maybe post-fusion, inflected with a bit of art rock inspiration – still with plenty of jazz-based solos, but also a very unconventional approach to the rhythms, which are sometimes sunny and bright, sometimes a bit more edgey. Titles include "Raku Raku Raku", "Light Footwork Song", "7 Time", "A Crack In The Sky", and "Setouchi Blue". CD

Lee KonitzFigure & Spirit (with bonus track) ... CD
Progressive, 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
A subtle 70s gem from the great Lee Konitz – a record that almost returns to the spare, simple, sublime sound of his best 50s recordings – but with a few more modern edges too! Lee's alto is superb throughout – every bit as sharp as when we love it the best – and the tenor of Ted Brown provides wonderful counterpoint at many spots, moving with Lee a bit like Warne Marsh – but with a sound that shows all the lessons that both players have learned over the years. Rhythm is from a well-chosen trio of younger players, who always seem expectant to new directions – Albert Dailey on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and titles include "Figure & Spirit", "Dream Stepper", "Smog Eyes", "April", "Without You Man", and "Dig It". CD features the bonus track "Feather Bed". CD

Atlantic (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $9.99
A gem by Lee Konitz – one of his near-perfect 50s sessions for Atlantic! Lee's tone here is crisp, clear, and hauntingly fresh – modern, yet never academically so – and played with a dexterity that's incredible, but never too in love with itself to go too far. Key players on the session include guitarist Billy Bauer on side one, and bassist Peter Ind and pianist Sal Mosca on side two – both artists who fit Lee's vision perfectly, matching tone and color beautifully. Titles include great readings of "Star Eyes" and "Everything Happens To Me" – plus Konitz tunes "Kary's Trance" and "Cork N Bib" – and a reading of Peter Ind's "Nesuhi's Instant". CD

Lee KonitzLive At Laren ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1979. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A cool European set from Lee Konitz – quite different than some of his other material recorded overseas at the time, with a swinging, upbeat feel that's totally great! The group's a nonet – a large ensemble that features Lee on alto and soprano sax, with Ronnie Cuber on baritone, Kimmy Kneper on trombone, Red Rodney on trumpet, and Sam Burtis on bass trombone. The arrangements for the horns are really wonderful – kind of echoing an older west coast mode, but with lots of the new modernisms that Konitz picked up during the late 60s and 70s – forged into some beautiful tunes that sparkle with fresh changes, great solos, and a compelling dynamic energy. Rhythm is from Ben Aronov on electric and acoustic piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – and titles include "Moon Dreams", "April", "Who You", "Without A Song", "Times Lie", and "Matrix".

Pretty modern work from Konitz – recorded in Rome in 1968, with a French rhythm section of Martial Solal on piano, Henry Texier on bass, and Daniel Humair on drums. The presence of Solal especially gives the session an edge – as Kontiz drifts into Solal's moody, introspective mode of the time – playing long, angular, sparely-hung solos that rank with some of his most challenging work of the 60s. Titles include "Collage On Standards", "Duet For Saxophone & Drums, & Piano", "Anthropology", "Roman Blues", and "Lover Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Konitz QuintetPeacemeal ... CD
Milestone/OJC, 1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Quite a unique set from Lee Konitz – recorded during a late 60s period where he was wonderfully experimental with his sound! For the album, Konitz is joined by Marshall Brown on valve trombone & baritone horn, Dick Katz on piano & electric piano, Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack De Johnette on drums – all making for a mixed acoustic/electric sound that seems to set Lee free – not in a trippy way, but in a mode that breaks the ice of the 50s years, tempers the freedom of the early 60s recordings, and makes for a really fresh approach overall! The album starts off with three Bartok pieces that were originally for piano but have been adapted by the Quintet – and also features three Katz originals and two Konitz pieces – titles that include "Thumb Under", Lester Leaps In", "Something To Sing", "Peasant Dance", "Subconcious Lee", and "Fourth Dimension". CD features 3 bonus alternate takes! CD

Hakon Kornstead & KORKHakon Kornstead & KORK – Live ... CD
Grappa (Norway), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from saxophonist Hakon Kornstad – a special project that features his smaller group with backing from the larger KORK ensemble – a Norwegian radio orchestra who bring a really special flavor to the record! But the presence of the orchestra is only part of the picture – as the songs are also all from classical and operatic sources – and feature vocal performances mixed in with the jazz phrasings of the group – singing, we assume, that's from Hakon himself – as he's billed in the credits as a "tenor" in addition to playing tenor sax! Other group members include Lars Henrik Johansen on piano and celeste and Sigbjorn Apeland on harmonium – and with that latter instrument in the mix, you can definitely be sure there's lots of interesting tones and moods at play. Titles include "Nadir", "L'Ultima Canzone", "Di Tu Se Fedele", "Aba", and "En Svane". CD
