✨✧ Mel TormeOle Torme ... LP
Verve, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
A rare gem from Mel Torme – one of his greatest albums of the 50s! The album's got a very unusual approach – for Mel, that is – in that it sets his vocals up in Latinized arrangements, handled with a brassy finish by the great Billy May. The set's got a heck of a lot more punch than some of Mel's mellower records – and the pairing of his smooth foggy vocals with the jazzy touches of May is a genius pairing. Titles include "Frenesi", "Rosita", "Perfida", "Malaguena", "Rhumba Jumps", "Baia", and "Nina". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)

Spontaneous Music OrchestraSearch & Reflect ... CD
Emanem (UK), 1973/1975/1981. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 29.99
A massive collection of work from the Spontaneous Music Orchestra – that larger ensemble formed around the core Spontaneous Music duo of drummer John Stevens and saxophonist Trevor Watts – heard here on material from three different performances! CD1 features long tracks recorded in 1973, by a version of the group that includes players Larry Stabbins on sax, John Russell on guitar, Brian Eley on voice, Nigel Coombes on violin, and Simon Mortimer on piano – working in ways that really move past more conventional improvisation of the period – not nearly as free, and more concerned with the overall sonic structural possibilities of the larger ensemble – in ways that are still quite revolutionary all these many years later! Titles include "Sustained Piece", "In Relationship To Silence", "One Two", and "Mouthpiece". CD2 then begins with a forty minute piece titled "Plus Equals" – recorded live, and featuring Stevens on cornet and percussion, both Watts and Evan Parker on soprano sax, Ian Brighton and Roger Smith on guitars, Nigel Coombes on violin, Marcio Mattos on bass, and a trio of cellos. The work is a bit more angular than the material on the first disc – and followed by "Triangle" and a passage of "Static", which feature Howard Riley on piano, Lol Coxhill and Watts on soprano sax, Paul Rutherford on trombone, Jon Corbett on trumpet, and Maggi Nicols on voice. All of the material was presented at some point in the past by Emanem, but constitute more of a definitive package in this release. CD

Shadow VignettesBirth Of A Notion ... LP
Sessom, 1985. Very Good ... $3.99
Chicago reed player Ed Wilkerson (also known as the leader of 8 Bold Souls, and a member of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble) formed this group in the 80's as sort of a mixed large band of Chicago avant garde players, but with more of a focus on tighter swingin' sounds. This, their only LP, includes the cuts "Strollin", "Quiet Resolution", "Feets Of Clay", and "Honky Tonk Bud", which also yielded a video, that was shown quite a bit in Chicago at the time.

Harold McKinneyVoices & Rhythms Of The Creative Profile ... LP
Tribe, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About February 5, 2018 (delayed)
One of the most righteous albums ever issued by the always-righteous Tribe Records label of Detroit – a really collective effort, one that features ensemble vocals and spiritual jazz – all pulled together by pianist Harold McKinney! The album showcases a group named Voices Of The Creative Profile – formed by McKinney to accompany his Creative Profile instrumental group – and the overall style is a great blend of spiritual soul jazz that gives equal time to the voices and instruments in the set. Gwen McKinney heads up the vocal ensemble, and other players on the set include Wendell Harrison on flute, Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Billy Turner on percussion, and Ed Pickins on bass. Also features some cool moog from Darryl Dybka – and titles that include "In The Moog", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Dolphin Dance", "Heavenese", "Ode To Africa", "Out Of The Blues", and "Cornerstone".

Laetitia Sadier Source EnsembleFind Me Finding You ... LP
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

Boz ScaggsMoments (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Used ... $19.99
If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound! The Scaggs here is a really loose and soulful one – as Boz steps out of the freewheeling late 60s Bay Area scene with a really wonderful take on blue-eyed soul – an approach that's clearly informed by the sound of The Rascals and some of the New York scene, but which also has some tasty California touches that really transform the mood. Boz vocals are pure and straightforward – and the instrumentation on the set has a tight, but laidback sort of feel – no surprise, as Boz' band of the time was really great. There's a real Free Soul sort of feel to the record – and tracks include "Moments", "Downright Women", "Painted Bells", "Alone Alone", "Near You", "We Were Always Sweethearts", "Can I Make It Last", and "We Been Away".

✨✧ Les Baxter with Bas ShevaPassions (10-inch Box Set) ... LP
Capitol, 1954. Used 10-inch Box Set ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really obscure box set recording – done as Les Baxter's classic exploitation of "a woman's passions", using vocalist Bas Sheva in the role of the tormented female! Sheva's got a bold, evocative style that's not unlike Yma Sumac – and she sings here wordlessly, as an added instrument on top of Baxter's orchestrations – playing the role of the inner psyche of woman, on titles that include "Lust", "Terror", "Joy", "Hate", "Ecstasy", and "Despair"! The whole thing's a mini docu-drama in sound – beautifully recorded in a flurry of red, blue, and other chromatic hues – not as exotic as Baxter's other work from the 50s, but equally great as a modern sonic psychoanalytic text! The package is great, with a nice little box, a great booklet explaining the psychology of the album, and a nice little 10" LP nestled inside the whole thing! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet and pamphlet. Box has split top corners and a torn wrap-around.)

VariousDeep Jazz Trip ... CD
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really letting its artists do their thing – and you'll heard that clearly on some of the best cuts here – numbers that offer up surprisingly vibrant sides of the artists included, usually with some righteous undertones. Titles include Eddie Jefferson's rendering of "Freedom Jazz Dance" (and a very crazy one at that), Charles Earland's excellent stormer "Murilley", Kenny Barron's "Swamp Demon", Walter Bishop Jr's "Soul Village", Joao Donato's "Night Tripper", "Old Man Moses" by Grant Green, and three nice ones by Carlos Garnett – "Good Shepherd", "Banks Of The Nile", and "Taurus Woman", from the classic Black Love LP.

✨✧ Sammy Davis JrAll-Star Spectacular ... CD
Collectors Choice/Reprise, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the strangest sides of Sammy Davis Jr's talents – his incredible ability to impersonate other singers and actors – a talent that served him well in his early stage days at the Apollo, and which he would bring out in later years, often to the great surprise of his audiences! This album is one of the few documents of Sammy's talents in this respect, and has him speaking and singing in uncanny renditions of older celebrities that include Jimmy Stewart, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles, Mel Torme, and many others. The best are the singers that were Sammy's contemporaries on the scene – and titles include "Be My Love", "Lulu's Back In Town", "I Married An Angel", "Falling In Love Again", "Deed I Do", and "That Lucky Old Sun".

✨✧ Albert MangelsdorffNow Jazz Ramwong – The Albert Mangelsdorff Quintet In Asia ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy Tri-fold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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!)

✨✧ Vaudou GameKidayu (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

Albert AylerBells (white vinyl pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
ESP, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A seminal live set by a young Albert Ayler – an unusual one-sided record that featured only 20 minutes of music, performed with an intensity that hardly 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! Plus, this version of the album also includes a bonus track – "Vibrations (aka Tune Q)" – done in a 1964 recording that was accidentally put in place of "Spirits" on the very first vinyl pressing of "Spiritual Unity". The track is almost 8 minutes long – and features Ayler on tenor, Gary Peacock on bass, and Sunny Murray on percussion. LP, Vinyl record album

"Security" is an untempo stormer and "It's Too Late" is slower cooking flipside with cool organ in the middle. The production is excellent, too, with a genuinely vintage feel! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
A real oddity – a soundtrack on Vee Jay records, the label best known for their groundbreaking work in soul, blues, and jazz. Even stranger, the score is for a schlocky Vincent Price film, based on a Jules Verne story – written by Les Baxter, in the flowery style he used for some of his late 50s, non-exotic work at Capitol. The album is performed by the 100 Men, directed by Cal Carter of Vee Jay – and titles include "Topage", "Flight Concerto", "Philadelphia", "Drifting Clouds", and "Over The Rocks". Nice painted cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaI Quattro Dell-Apocalisse/Sella D'Argento (Four Of The Apocalypse/Silver Saddle) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1975/1978. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A strange soundtrack to an even stranger-sounding film about some crazy drifters in the old west! The film's got lots of groovy guitar-based tracks with kind of a light spacey sound, and some weird hippieish vocals in the background – a lot more tripped out than you might expect for the usual sort of spaghetti western, and almost handled with an approach that's lime some of the hipper American work of the mainstream at the time. The music is performed by Cook & The Benjamin Franklin Group – clearly a small group with guitars and keyboards, recorded in a way that's not entirely rockish, but which has some great sunny harmony vocals on a few of the best tracks. There's almost a Warner/Reprise vibe to the record at times – and titles include "Slow Violence", "Movin On", "Chaco", "Stubby", "Bunny Love Song", and "On The Traces Of Chaco". Silver Saddle is late entry into the Italian spaghetti western scene – and one of the few films of the genre directed by mostly-horror director Lucio Fulci! Fulci's working here with trio of composers Bixio-Frizzi-Tempera – who did such great work on the Four Horsemen soundtrack – as well as Canadian folk singer Ken Tobias, who sings in English on the title tune "Silver Saddle". The overall style is gentler and slightly more sentimental than the usual western score – penned with some complicated orchestrations from time to time, but usually an approach that features isolated guitar, harmonica, and percussion stepping out in western-styled themes. Titles include "A Cowboy & A Kid", "Silver Saddle", "Hot Lands", "In The Desert", "Two Friends", and "Cantina Guitar No 2". Each CD has a nubmer of bonus tracks, too! CD
