✨✧ Le OrmeCollage (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Philips/BTF (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally great little record – from the creepy cover image right down to the heavy prog sounds in the grooves – and a real standout classic from the Italian scene at the start of the 70s! L'Orme work in relatively familiar territory – bass, organ, and drums – but they mix the sounds with styles as riveting as their picture on the front of the album – creating a style that's got all the best elements of the top-shelf British groups of the time, but a sound that's very much their own – and not just because of the Italian lyrics, either! The whole thing's a gem – and a sad reminder that so many of these Italian groups never got their due, because of the Anglo barrier of language. Don't let that stop you, though – and dive into tunes that include "Era Inverno", "Cemento Armato", "Sguardo Verso Il Cielo", "Immagini", and "Evasione Totale". LP, Vinyl record album

Air10,000 Hz Legend (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Astralwerks/Parlophone, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 34.98
A great early 00s effort from Air – bravely moving towards a deeper, trippier sound! For 10,000 Hz Legend, they wisely don't try to replicate the comparably effervescent vibe of their late 90s classic Moon Safari. On some level, they're still working with some of moodier textures of their work on the Virgin Suicides soundtrack, particularly in the warm, but slightly eerie melodies, but there's a much more expansive vibe here. They're still recognizable as sensual, electronics embracing avant pop composers of Moon Safari, but there's a lot more deftly layered influences here, from prog, to psych, to disco – and it's a great beginning-to-end listen. Includes "Electronic Performers", "How Does It Make You Feel", "Radio #1", "The Vagabond", "Radian", "Sex Born Poison", "People In The City", "Don't Be Light", "Caramel Prisoner" and more.

AirtoLatino – Aqui Se Puede ... LP
Sobocode (Puerto Rico), 1984. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
An overlooked gem from Airto – recorded after his 70s years on bigger labels, but a set that almost tops all of them in the end! There's a wonderful mix going on here – a blend of rootsy and electric, and Latin and Brazilian – the former clearly from the placement of the record on New York's Montuno label – an imprint that did plenty of great sessions filled with Latin jazz! The shift makes for a fresh one for Airto – still plenty of room to show off his famous percussion impulses, yet in a slightly different way – often grooving in a Latin fusion mode that's a nice maturation from the CTI years. The set's filled with all-star players – including Jorge Dalto on electric piano, Raul De Souza on trombone, Joe Farrell on flute, Alphonso Johnson on bass, and Oscar Castro Neves on keyboards, guitar, and cavaquinho – and the lovely Flora's also on board to sing a bit on the set. Titles include the extended jammer "Tombo", plus "Aqui Se Pede", "Jump", "The Return", "Sin Salida", and "Anatelio". LP, Vinyl record album

Ambrose AkinmusireImagined Savior Is Far Easier To Paint ... CD
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
The music here is as evocative as the title – almost a mix of contemporary Blue Note modes with older ECM styles – all served up as a perfect showcase for the ever-growing talents of trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire! We've really dug the last two records from Ambrose, and this one seems to push his voice even father than before – sometimes in smaller acoustic settings, sometimes with a bit of vocals, and sometimes a bit of strings – performed by a shifting lineup that includes guests Becca Stevens, Theo Bleckmann, and Cold Specks on vocals – plus a core group that includes Walter Smith on tenor and Sam Harris on piano. Titles include "Marie Christie", "Memo", "Ceasless Inexhaustible Child", "Rollcall For Those Absent", "Vartha", and "Our Basement". CD

AllspiceAllspice ... CD
Fantasy/Dusty Groove, 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
The only album ever from Allspice – but a hell of an incredible soul record – and one that's kept the group's name strong with collectors and rare groove fanatics for years! The album's on of the best Fantasy Records productions by Wayne Henderson and his At Home team – and like some of the others, is handled with a groove that's tight, yet plenty sophisticated too – light years from mainstream disco or common club of the late 70s, and instead informed by plenty of jazz and deeper ideas as well! The vibe is perfect – as heavenly and righteous as some of the best Roy Ayers club tracks of the time – which proves to be a perfect foil for the Allspice style of mixing male and female vocals – which again is often done in an Ayers-like mode. The sound is sublime throughout – one of those real treasures that should have been a huge record in the 70s, but was barely pressed up at all – and quickly forgotten about by the record company. Yet even after all these years, the whole thing sounds amazing – one of those albums we'd never part with at all! Titles include the groovy "Slipped Away", the funky stepper "Hungry For Your Love" – and loads of other great tunes that include "Love Fire", "Destiny", "She's A Lady", "I Don't Know", and "Give It Time".

Chris AndersonMy Romance ... LP
Vee Jay/RVC (Japan), 1960. Near Mint- ... $38.99
A rare session from Chicago pianist Chris Anderson – a hell of a player on the ivories, but one who's been woefully under-recorded over the years! This gem was originally cut for Vee Jay in 1960, but not issued until many years later for this Japanese release – and we're extremely puzzled as to why the set never came out at the time, because it's excellent work throughout, at a level that should have made Anderson a real star! There's a depth and sensitivity here that recalls Ahmad Jamal at his early best – an approach to the keys that's fluid, but never flowery – and which has enough of a groove overall to keep the focus of the tunes at all times, yet also let Anderson take off in wonderful flights of improvisation. Backing is by Bill Lee on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and Taylor's work here is especially nice, often using mallets and softer touches to shade the tunes with a very gentle rhythm – an approach that's quite unusual for Art on record during this stretch. Titles are mostly all standards – save for Lee's "Monica" – but they're nicely transformed by Anderson with his magic on the keys. Titles include "Love Letters", "Soon", "So In Love", "I Could Write A Book", and "A Fellow Needs A Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese EMI pressing – very nice!)

Darol Anger & Barbara HigbieTideline ... CD
Windham Hill/Adventure Music, 1982. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
Piano and violin come together beautifully here – the former by Barbara Higbie, the latter by Darrol Anger – who also plays mandolin and cello as well! There's an acoustic balance here that's more jazz than some of the other Windham Hill albums of the time – especially in the music's sense of rhythm and phrasing – and the rich acoustic tones of both players get wonderfully past some of the new age cliches that are too-often wrongly associated with the label – and remind us that at their best, records like these offer up a key flowering of the acoustic underground of the 70s. Mike Marshall plays guest mandolin on one title – and tracks include "Movie", "Tideline", "Above The Fog", "True Story", "Onyame", and "Gemini". Really great 2015 remaster – excellent sound and package – way better than the Windham Hill releases in the 80s! CD
(Great version – with much better mastering than the previous CD issue!)

AntibalasDirty Money/AWOL ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99
Two stormers from Antibalas! "Dirty Money" is one of their boldest cuts in years – a tune that leaps right out of the grooves, right from the start – thanks to plenty of searing Afro Funk rhythms, and even moreso to a wicked Hammond part that burns beautifully for the first minute or so – working out sounds that are incredibly fresh and powerful! "AWOL" has more horns in the lead, and a great funky bassline at the core – a bad-stepping little number that's equal parts Afro and Funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Average White BandPerson To Person ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Their classic double live set from the mid 70s, and as tight a batch of grooves as you'll find on their studio albums! In fact, this one might even be tighter, as it's got a good set of classic tracks performed live, with a sound that's a little bit more uptight and open than the studio versions– and which is especially freewheeling on the instrumental solos. Many tracks go for a lot longer than on the original versions – and there's a version of "Pick Up The Pieces" that runs for 18 minutes, a version of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" that grooves for 8 minutes, a version of "School Boy Crush" that jams for 7 minutes, plus nice takes on the cuts "Cut The Cake", "Love Your Life", and "Cloudy".

Roy AyersLots Of Love (Soul Jazz pressing) ... LP
Uno Melodic/Soul Jazz (UK), 1983. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
An incredible album by Roy Ayers – but one that's often overlooked because it was a rare indie effort issued between Roy's years at Polydor and Columbia! The session's Roy's only full album for Uno Melodic – the label he formed to showcase the talents of Sylvia Striplin, Ladies Of The Eighties, and others – and it's done in a snapping, boogie-styled groove that's very similar to the work by other Uno acts at the time. There's still plenty of the late Polydor Roy in the mix too – especially on the album's mellower numbers, which glide along nicely with all the right jazzy touches we love in a classic Ayers groove! Highlights include the excellent "Chicago", a really dark funk track with a mad descending groove; the Fela-styled "Black Family"; the warmly jazzy "Lots Of Love", an instrumental with vibes along strings; and the bass bumping "Everybody", a wicked later funk number! Other tracks include "And Then We Were One", "DC City", "Drive", and "Fast Money" – all great too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Albert AylerBells/Prophecy ... CD
ESP/ZYX (Germany), 1964/1965. Used ... $9.99
A double-length set that brings together 2 key early live sets by Albert Ayler – both recorded on the New York scene of the mid 60s! Bells was an unusual one-sided record that featured only 20 minutes of music, performed with an intensity that harly leaves room for complaints about the shortness of the album! The single track "Bells" was performed at Town Hall by Ayler with a group that includes Donald Ayler on trumpet, Charles Tyler on alto sax, Lewis Worrell on bass, and Sunny Murray on percussion – all coming together in a raw, real sense of freedom – beautifully explored here without ever getting too overindulgent. The tune may well be one of the greatest illustrations of the ESP format at its best – as Ayler and company never stray too far, but carve out some incredibly imaginative space through their starkly-blown horn solos! Prophecy is longer – a full album that was recorded live in 1964 at the Cellar Cafe in New York, but not issued by ESP until years later, after Ayler's untimely early death. The performance is a trio outing – with Ayler's tenor alongside the bass of Gary Peacock and drums of Sunny Murray – all freely skirting around each other's space on the date, in a way that allows Ayler to take the bold lead with his sharp-toned solos, but which also allows for free interplay between the bass and percussion. Ayler's tone and wide swaths of sound are simply amazing – and titles include two variations on "Ghosts", plus "Spirits", "Prophecy", and "Wizard". CD

Syd BarrettBarrett (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Harvest/Parlophone, 1970. Sealed (reissue)... $14.99
A sublime second solo effort from Syd Barrett – and maybe his most perfectly-formed album ever! There's a sinister balance to the record right from the start – a gentle approach to the offbeat themes that is almost more unsettling than if the matter was undertaken more forcefully – weird little bits just tossed off by Syd as if they're really the ramblings of the madman promised on the cover of his first LP – almost with a deadpan quality that makes the whole thing even more unsettling with repeated listenings! Instrumentation is relatively lean – almost a folksy mix of acoustic guitar, electric, sullen bass, and some haunting keyboards – all as if someone picked apart Pink Floyd, then started to construct a rough sketch from the parts that lay scattered on the floor. The album's had an influence from psych through punk and many years beyond – and titles include "Baby Lemonade", "Gigolo Aunt", "Wolfpack", "Effervescing Elephant", "Winde & Dined", "Rats", and "It Is Obvious".

Ray BarrettoPortraits In Jazz And Clave ... CD
RCA/Victor, 1999. Used ... $6.99
A great little jazz album from Ray – more so than most of his earlier work from the 60s and 70s, and performed here with a great batch of players that include guest appearances by Kenny Burrell, Steve Turre, Eddie Gomez, and Joe Lovano. Adam Koller is in Ray's regular group – and he gets in some great licks on tenor and soprano that really open up Ray's Latin versions of jazz standards like "I Mean You", "Johnny Come Lately", "Cotton Tail", "Oclupaca", "Like Sonny", and Wayne Shorter's "Go".

Count BasieDance Along With Basie ... LP
Roulette, 1958. Very Good ... $1.99
One of the lesser-remembered Basie sessions for Roulette – but one of the best ones too! The album follows nicely in the "dance" style of Basie's earlier albums for Clef – by offering a set of work that was typical of that the group might have performed on one of their more popular live sets for swingers. The tunes are a bit familiar, the charts are more rhythmic and not too far out – but the playing is top-shelf all the way, and the set grooves with a style that makes you easily understand why the Count was still going strong at the time. Titles include "It Had To Be You", "Fools Rush In", "Easy Living", "Give Me The Simple Life", "Secret Love", and "It's A Pity To Say Goodnight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Count BasieKansas City Suite – The Music Of Benny Carter ... CD
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99
A great little set – despite our initial fears about the package – and a really wonderful pairing of the talents of Count Basie and Benny Carter! We'll admit that we're the first ones to shy away from anything that says "Kansas City" in the title – as we expect a lot of hoke – but this album's a surprisingly great batch of tunes, original numbers written by Benny Carter in honor of the KC of days past, but arranged and performed by the Basie group in a swinging style that's got the best touches of their Roulette years, plus a bit of Ellingtonish ambition in the horn charts. Titles include "Katy Do", "Miss Missouri", "Jackson County Jubilee", "Sunset Glow", "Meetin Time", and "The Wiggle Walk". CD

✨✧ Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... $12.99
A platter of Madlib beats – the first in a series of instrumental hip hop from 'Lib's Beat Konducta (formerly Beat Conductor) moniker! Madlib's production work has always had a filmic groove, and this set collects and assembles the most cinematic of said beats into an (unsurprisingly) incredible 2-sided piece. The soundscapes really kind of run the gamut of his hip hop styles – always soulful, and always funky, whether he's rocking a stone funk or an electro-modeled groove. Honestly, how much longer is it going to take for the mainstream to finally catch up with this genius!?! Tracks include "The Comeback (Madlib)", "The Payback (Gotta)", "Face The Sun (Africa)", "Stax (Strings)", "Left On Silverlake (Ride)", "Offbeat (Grooves)","Pyramids (Change)", "Eternal Broadcaster (Authentic)" and more!

Naomi Beckwith & Dieter RoelstraeteFreedom Principle – Experiments In Art & Music 1965 to Now ... Book
Museum Of Contemporary Art, 2015. New Copy ... $28.99 35.00
A beautiful book from the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Chicago – done in collaboration with a great exhibit on the AACM and AfriCobra arts movements of the 60s! The former is very well-known to Dusty Groove customers – the musical movement that gave focus to the ideas and energies of jazz musicians Roscoe Mitchell, Muhal Richard Abrams, Anthony Braxton, George Lewis, Nicole Mitchell, The Art Ensemble Of Chicago, Douglas Ewart, and so many important Chicago talents of the past 50s years. AfriCOBRA was a visual movement, and equally important – and often worked alongside the AACM with similar empowerment and consciousness-raising ideals – presented here in a stunning range of works that include paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, installations, and other striking forms – by artists who include KeRa Upra, Mitchell Caton, Wadsworth Jarrell, Yaounde Olu, Jose Williams, and others – brought together here in a range of beautiful images. The book features way more than the exhibit – including images of older artifacts, such as posters – and essays by curators Naomi Beckwith and Dieter Roelstraete – as well as George Lewis, Rebecca Zorach, and a collective conversation with Tomeka Reid, Hamza Walker, and Romi Crawford. Other great bits include a chronology of creative activity – and a topography of the movements, mapped over Chicago with photos of key locations. 263 pages, softcover, in full color. Book

Archie Bell & The DrellsThere's Gonna Be A Showdown ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A stormer from Archie Bell & The Drells – one of our favorite soul albums ever, and a masterpiece of mid-tempo soul! Archie Bell & The Drells sound amazing here – light years from the rougher funk of their earlier years, yet still with a groove that's undeniable – an incredible meeting of soul music scenes handled by the young Gamble & Huff team – who not only produce most of the record, but also wrote most of the tracks on the set! The groove is lightly lilting, and totally on the money – a sound that's incredible, and hard to describe in words – but which really grabs us from the get-go. All tracks are great, and totally fresh – and tunes include "I Love My Baby", "Houston Texas", "Showdown", "My Balloon's Going Up", "Giving Up Dancing", "Girl You're Too Young", and "Green Power".

Andy & The Bey SistersRound Midnight (original pressing) ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good- ... $19.99
One of the rare few records recorded by a young Andy Bey and his sisters! The group was an obscure jazz harmony trio formed by Andy in his earlier years – and it features him on piano, joining with the vocals of his two sisters Salome and Geradine Bey – in a soulful, moody style that's unlike anything else we can think of! Their three heavenly voices are backed by Kenny Burrell's guitar, Milt Hinton's bass, and Osie Johnson's drums, and there's lots of room around the arrangments for the Beys to stretch out and sing beautifully. Includes a haunting arrangment of "Round Midnight", plus "God Bless The Child", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Solitude", and the "Love Medley". LP, Vinyl record album

Binker & Moses (Binker Golding/Moses Boyd)Dem Ones (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $26.99
Just tenor and drums, coming together beautifully – the former from Binker Golding, the latter from Moses Boyd – a contemporary London duo who step out here in a soulful, almost spiritual mode! The music is loose, and very exploratory – yet never too free to swing – and always has this sense of rhythmic cohesion that almost seems to come more from Golding's tenor than it does from the drums of Boyd – although both players seem to shift back and forth in terms of centering the performance. The recording quality is wonderful – with this stark, crisp feel that almost takes us back to 70s New York loft jazz performances of this nature – and titles include "The Creeper", "Retox", "ESU", "No Long Tinges", and "Black Ave Maria".

A moving tribute to the late, great Serge Gainsbourg – served up in a mix of film and songs from his famous partner Jane Birkin! The set features a DVD directed by Jane – a 40 minute documentary filled with private images of Serge, laid out in a very loving tribute – and it's packaged with 2CDs' worth of music recorded with Serge in duet, or with lots of Gainsbourg help as both a writer or producer. Includes a rare alternate take of "Jane B" from 1968, plus "Rocking Chair", "Nicotine", "Exercice En Forme De Z", "Yesterday Yes A Day", "Ex Fan Des Sixties", "Di Doo Dah", "La Decadanse", "Baby Lou", "Quoi", "Et Quand Bien Meme", "Raccrochez C'Est Une Horreur", and lots more – including live versions of "Un Chose Entre Autres" and "Ces Petitis Riens" – and the song "La Gadoue" done with Les Negresses Vertes.
