✨✧ LabellePressure Cookin' ... CD
RCA/Reel Music, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the slightly less-formed modes of their Warner Brothers years – finding a really badass sort of territory that would serve them well for the rest of the 70s! The shift really pays off – as there's a number of good funky numbers on the album – and some righteous political lyricism in the mix, too – but also some mellower moments that really round things out nicely. The trio riff on a version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", as led into by the cut "Something In The Air" – and other numbers include "Sunshine (Woke Me Up This Morning)", "Mr. Music Man", "Goin' On a Holiday", "Open Up Your Heart", "Let Me See You In The Light", and "Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood".

✨✧ Mel TormeThat's All (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest, straightest sets from Mel Torme – an all-classic batch of tracks that's quite different than his other album for Columbia! Torme checks in as a totally committed, totally serious jazz vocalist here – with an impeccable approach to the music that puts this album right up there with the best work of Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett – very mature, but very personal too – in a way that really transforms familiar tunes. Arrangements are by Robert Mersey, who handles Torme with the best care he's had since the classic 50s recordings with Marty Paich – and titles include "PS I Love You", "The Nearness Of You", "Haven't We Met", and "Ho Ba La La". CD features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 12 additional numbers, 2 of which are unreleased – titles that include "Only The Very Young", "Paris Smiles", "Every Day's A Holiday", "One Little Snowflake", "You'd Better Love Me", and "I See It Now".

✨✧ Eydie GormeDon't Go To Strangers/Softly As I Leave You ... CD
GL, 1966/1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great double-header – especially since both albums are top-shelf! Don't Go To Strangers is a 60s classic from Eydie Gorme – and a set that showed the world that she had a lot more to offer than just some peppy duets with Steve Lawrence! Sure, Eydie had sung on her own before – and often did a pretty darn great job – but this album really takes off with a new sort of maturity – one that comes through in the title, and in Gorme's all-adult readings of the tunes – with a poise, care, and class that we're not sure we'd heard on records from her before. Don Costa handles the arrangements superbly – and titles include "What Did I Have That I Don't Have", "If He Walked Into My Life", "Don't Go To Strangers", "How Did He Look", "When He Leaves You", and "Tell Him I Said Hello". Softly As I Leave You is great second-period work from Eydie Gorme – one of the wonderfully mature 60s albums when she was really developing herself as a singer! The album's got a careful sort of poise – emotive, but never overdone – and arranged to perfection by Don Costa, in ways that are even more sensitive to Eydie's strengths than his previous work with the singer. Titles include "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "What's Good About Goodbye", "Guess I Should Have Loved Him More", "Softly As I Leave You", and "All Alone". CD

Laetitia Sadier Source EnsembleFind Me Finding You ... CD
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
A wonderful, and nicely surprising return to Stereolab-like vibes from Laetitia Sadier! Laetitia really found some different, moodier contours on her previous couple (also excellent) solo efforts – and it was pleasing for us longtime fans to hear her working in recognizable form, but taking some different roads. This one's a little more like the old days, though! Which is not to say the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble is a seperate stab at a Stereolab record – there's an all-around more down-to-earth vibe than than buoyant, often spacey pop of her legendary former band – but she's drawing from the same wonderful well of 60s French pop, 70s keyboards and myriad other inspirations, with dreamy bilingual English & French vocals. Includes "Undying Love For Humanity", "Double Voice, Extra Voice", "Love Captive", "Psychology Active (Finding You)", "Committed", "Reflectors", "Deep Background", "The Woman With The Invisible Necklace" and more.

✨✧ Camberwell NowEP Collection (Meridian/Greenfingers) (with bonus download) ... LP
Modern Classics/Light In The Attic, Mid 80s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great LP package that brings together the two important EP releases from Camberwell Now – that excellent group formed by Charles Hayward after the dissolution of This Heat! The first half of the set is from Meridian – the group's first effort, and a wonderful batch of music that kind of takes an earlier Brit prog sound into the post-punk years – a bit like some of Robert Wyatt's material of the time, as are the vocals – but with maybe more of the sense of sound and texture that you'd expect from Hayward! Overall, the music is far less rhythmic than his previous efforts – but that's what makes it great – almost a weirder abstraction of sounds you might hear on Factory Records. Titles include "Cutty Sark", "Trade Winds", "Splash", and "Pearl Divers". Greenfingers is the last recorded material from Camberwell Now – an EP released in 1987, but one with a sound that feels much more like the UK indie scene of 5 years before – especially that point when groups were breaking past straighter punk, and really trying to integrate some new ideas with their music. There's definitely a continuation of the Robert Wyatt vibe – on both the vocal performance, and some of the moodier electronics – and titles include "Greenfingers", "Element Unknown", "Know How", and "Mystery Of The Fence". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful package – heavy cover with booklet, plus download with two bonus tracks!)

Kurt EllingFlirting With Twilight ... CD
Blue Note, 2001. Used ... $2.99
Think what you may about this groove-patched hipster – we still think he's one of the best jazz vocalists of our time! Kurt Elling's carrying a torch that few other singers could handle – a direct line back to the genius male jazz vocal work of singers like Mark Murphy and Jon Hendricks, armed with the confident emotionality and freely expressive style of the former, and the jazz-based virtuosity and sense of humor of the latter. This recent Blue Note session is very much in Elling's best mode – a bit too sweet in parts, but filled with some great numbers that show him always pushing the envelope, not content to just be a "modern classic" vocalist, as might be said for some of his female contemporaries in the jazz vocal realm. Titles include "Say It", "While You Are Mine", "I'm Thru With Love", "Orange Blossoms In Summertime", "Detour Ahead", "Lil Darlin", and "Easy Living". And sure, we wish there were more original compositions – as on other albums – but Elling really still does a great job with the standards! CD

Benny GoodmanLive At Carnegie Hall – 40th Anniversary Concert ... LP
Phase 4, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
An album recorded in celebration of the anniversary of Benny Goodman's 1938 appearance at Carnegie Hall – but one that features a host of famous guest stars that include Mary Lou Williams, Buddy Tate, and Lionel Hampton! The groove is somewhat in the spirit of the older concert, but there's certainly some modern touches too – not just in the way the music is recorded (crystal clear, as is the Phase 4 way), but also in some of the tonal shadings in the tunes – clearly informed with a bit of the modernisms of the intervening 40 years. Titles include "Send In The Clowns", "Star Dust", "I Love A Piano", "Roll Em", "Rocky Raccoon", "String Of Pearls", "Goodbye", "Christopher Columbus", "Lady Be Good", and "Don't Be That Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Albert MangelsdorffNow Jazz Ramwong – The Albert Mangelsdorff Quintet In Asia ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy Tri-fold (reissue)... $24.99
Brilliant modern jazz from German trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – recording here in 1964, but sounding years ahead of his time, with an amazing a blend of jazz and Asian styles! The album's one of Mangelsdorff's best ever – a set of rhythmic tunes that seem clearly informed by the work of Ornette and Joe Harriott, but also based along eastern themes picked up by the group on a tour of the Orient – and performed by a sharp-edged quintet that includes Heinz Sauer on tenor and soprano sax, Gunter Kronberg on alto, Gunter Lenz on bass, and Ralph Hubner on drums. There's some nice traces of MPS/Saba modal and Jazz Meets the World styles – and overall, the rhythmic pulse keeps things from getting as free and out as on Mangelsdorff's 70s sides – really soaring, but never too far out – and always with a cool exotic groove. The whole thing's great – instantly striking, and always a treasure – and titles include "Sakura Waltz", "Now Jazz Ramwong", "Raknash", "Theme From Vietnam", and "Burungkaka". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful tri-fold cover pressing – just like the original!)

Dean MartinReturn To Me – The Capitol Years Part 2 (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 8CDs ... $109.99
A fantastic package of work that spans all of Dean's later years at Capitol Records – a time when he was really hitting his creative stride, breaking up with Jerry Lewis, and emerging as a multi-talented performer through his countless live appearances, film work, and other notable contributions to late 50s popular culture. All of this is documented brilliantly in the set's beautiful booklet – a 12" hardcover book with biographical information, an essay, discographical notes, and countless photos and images of Dean in his prime! Dean Martin has been woefully overlooked on the reissue market over the years, which makes this set even fresher than you might think – as it includes a huge amount of stuff that's never been reissued before, including tunes from radio shows, and film soundtracks like Ocean's Eleven, Pardners, Hollywood Or Bust, Ten Thousand Bedrooms, and The Young Lions. We totally love this one – and although we've been Dino fanatics for years, opening this one up is like finding a vault full of rare work we've never heard before! CD

PsychograssNow Hear This ... CD
Adventure Music, 2005. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A mix of acoustic jazz, bluegrass, and folk styles – performed by the Psychograss ensemble of Darol Anger on violin, Mike Marshall on mandolin, David Grier on guitar, Todd Phillips on acoustic bass, and Tony Trischka on banjo. There's a simple, straightforward sound here that takes us back to the best early work of Anger and Marshall – done at a time when such acoustic sessions were a fresh relief from overproduced music, and not the cliche they'd become in the new age years. Titles include "High Ham", "Road To Hope", "Scary", "Little Basses", "Not Yet Not", "In The Lion's Den", and "One Foot In The Gutter". CD

Vaudou GameKidayu (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A contemporary combo from Togo, but one who've got a hard-riffing sound that takes us back to the James Brown band of the late 60s – which is then mixed with a lot of sweet touches of their own, to create one of the freshest strands of Afro Funk we've heard in years! These guys are hardly content to copy modes of the 70s – and instead, they work with a sense of instrumental craftsmanship that's clearly informed by the giants of the past, but set loose in all these great new directions – especially given the paths that the flowing French vocals seem to open up! There's a sense of joy and pride in the music right from the start – a soaring sort of energy that's a great counterpoint to the gritty grooves at the bottom – and a combination that has us loving the group way more than before. Titles include "Natural Vaudou", "La Vie C'Est Bon", "On Se Pousse", "La Dette", "Elle Decide", "Locataire", "Cherie Nye", and "Lonlon". LP, Vinyl record album

Marcel DuchampEntire Musical Work Of Marcel Duchamp – Performed By SEM Ensemble ... CD
Ampersand, 1976. Used ... $6.99
The complete musical compositions of Marcel Duchamp are performed by the SEM Ensemble, led by Per Kotik in a 1976 recording from Milan. The group is a quartet, and instrumentation includes flute, trombone, celeste, and glockenspiel. The work actually has a quality that resonates nicely with some of the Italian minimalism of the time – and the 4 compositions are varied in mood and approach. CD

✨✧ Mel TormeMel Torme Swings Shubert Alley ... LP
Verve, 1960. Very Good ... $1.99
Mel Torme takes on the sound of Broadway at the start of the 60s – but he does so in a very groovy way, thanks to hip backings from the amazing Marty Paich! The style here is as swinging and jazzy as the work that Mel and Marty cut together on the Bethlehem label in the late 50s – and the tracks have a nice sort of groove, and an overall lean feel – a sound that takes the music far from its Broadway roots! Players include Art Pepper on alto, Stu Williamson on trumpet, Bill Perkins on tenor, and Frank Rosolino on trombone – all bringing a nice sense of themselves to the set. Titles include "Lonely Town", "Whatever Lola Wants", "Old Devil Moon", "Hello Young Lovers", "Too Close For Comfort", and "Just In Time". LP, Vinyl record album
