✨✧ CormegaTrue Meaning (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Aura/Legal Hustle, 2002. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Solid post-millennium effort from Cormega – with allstar production by Buckwild, Large Pro, Alchemist and Hi Tek! Sharp stuff that sounded to us at the time like it was built to stand the test of time, and sure enough, it's rock solid after all these years. Raw, straight-foward independent hip hop at it's finest, with some pretty diverse beats given the pedigree of the roster of producers listed above, all the better to showcase how versatile Cormega's no BS mic style is. "Verbal Graffiti", "Ain't Gone Change", "The Legacy", "The Come Up", "Souol Food", "Endangered Species" and "Therapy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 15 anniversary pressing on clear vinyl!)

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. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Eydie GormeDon't Go To Strangers ... LP
Columbia, 1966. Very Good ... $3.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Harold McKinneyVoices & Rhythms Of The Creative Profile ... LP
Tribe, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $46.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Covers are varied with slighly different designs – very nice, with really heavy cardboard!)

✨✧ Jackie McLean & John JenkinsAlto Madness ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used ... $18.99
A rough little killer from Jackie McLean – less well-formed than some of his Blue Note sides, but in a way that really gives him a great soulful edge! There's an open-blowing quality to the record, one that's almost a blowing session, but a bit tighter overall – a hint of the energy that McLean would bring to later dates, but a bit less polished overall. The group's a quintet – with John Jenkins on alto, blowing next to Jackie, plus Wade Legge piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor drums – and titles include "Alto Madness", "Windy City", "Easy Living", and "Pondering".

✨✧ Laetitia Sadier Source EnsembleFind Me Finding You ... LP
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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) (colored vinyl pressing – 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
(Limited edition colored vinyl pressing. Beautiful package – heavy cover with booklet, plus download with two bonus tracks!)

Kurt EllingFlirting With Twilight ... CD
Blue Note, 2001. Used ... $7.99
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

✨✧ 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!)

✨✧ Oneness Of JujuAfrican Rhythms ... LP
Black Fire, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark of 70s Afro-styled jazz – and the first album by this famous underground collective! Oneness of Juju were a Washington DC-based group that grew out of the ashes of the Juju avant jazz ensemble – formed in the culturally rich African-American community of DC in the 70s, with spiritual and political aspirations that stretched far beyond the average funky combo. This first album is a masterful blend of percussion, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – alternating vocal tracks with harder-hitting jazz instrumentals, all held together under the leadership of sax player Plunky Nakabinde – a reedman whose work here alone is worth the price of admission – laid out nicely alongside some great percussion, Fender Rhodes, and wonderfully worm vocals on a few tracks. The album's one of the greatest independent soul jazz albums of the 70s – and it's filled with great tracks, such as the breakbeat classic "African Rhythms" and "Liberation Dues" – plus "Kazi", "Funky Wood", "Don't Give Up", "Poo Too", and "Incognito".

✨✧ Mose AllisonWild Man On The Loose ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great 60s work from Mose Allison – a key record cut at that time when his influence was being felt strongly on the other side of the Atlantic – by younger London singers like Georgie Fame and Zoot Money! Mose is almost answering back with this great little record – hitting things with a sharp punch, and a nice undercurrent of soul and R&B – always in that New Orleans-informed groove, with loads of wonderful self-penned lyrics that really make the set sparkle! Allison's piano is plenty strong in the lead, and the album features the unlikely rhythm team of Earl May on bass and Paul Motian on drums – adding in some interesting changes on titles that include "War Horse", "Wild Man On The Loose", "Power House", "Night Watch", and "No Trouble Living".

✨✧ VariousDeep Jazz Trip ... CD
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Neil Ardley's New Jazz OrchestraOn The Radio – BBC Sessions 1971 ... CD
Dusk Fire/BBC (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
Fantastic live recordings from the legendary New Jazz Orchestra of Neil Ardley – a key force that united the worlds of British avant jazz and rock at the start of the 70s – but with a style that leaned a lot more towards the world of the former overall! Many of these players are artists who helped forge a whole new voice for Brit jazz in the 60s, and some were then rising to work with prog groups on bigger labels too – yet they all come together here wonderfully under the direction of Ardley – a genius for balancing freedom and cohesion, individual ideas and group energy! The tunes explode with the same sort of bold colors as Neil's few classic albums of the period – and the first six tracks feature a large group with Derek Wadsworth and Mike Gibbs on trombones, Don Rendell and Dick Heckstall-Smith on reeds, Dave Greenslade on organ and electric piano, Frank Ricotti on vibes, and Harry Beckett, Ian Carr, and Henry Lowther on trumpets – while the last track features a smaller group with Rendell, Carr, and the unusual inclusion of Barry Guy on amplified bass and Keith Winter on electronics. All tracks are well-recorded, and pulled from the BBC vaults – and titles include "Stratusphunk", "Time Flowers", "Terre De Miel", "The Immortal Ninth", "Pendulum", and "Half Blue". CD

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoFanfare For The Warriors ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint- ... $28.99
A beautiful little record from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – and although performed for a bigger label than some of their previous indie outings, the set may be one of the most dynamic the group ever recorded! Atlantic Records is clearly giving the group a lot of space here – as they're recording in Chicago, in a relatively free setting – able to stretch out and change things up with amazing energy – never just free jazz exploration, but a very rich, complicated, well-considered approach to their many layers of instrumentation and rhythm! Muhal Richard Abrams makes a great guest appearance on the record – adding in some wonderful piano passages – and the set includes the usual mix of reeds, percussion, and vocals – plus the beautiful bass work of Malachi Favors. Tracks include "Nonaah", "The Key", "Tnoona", and "Fanfare For The Warriors". LP, Vinyl record album
