✨✧ LabellePressure Cookin' ... CD
RCA/Reel Music, 1973. New Copy ... $5.99 12.99
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".

Eydie GormeDon't Go To Strangers/Softly As I Leave You ... CD
GL, 1966/1967. Used ... $14.99
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

Camberwell NowEP Collection (Meridian/Greenfingers) (with bonus download) ... LP
Modern Classics/Light In The Attic, Mid 80s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
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!)

Jards MacaleJards Macale (1972) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An incredible album by one of our favorite Brazilian artists! This gem from 1972 is an album that we'd rank right up there with work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, or Lo Borges from the same time – with an underground singer/songwriter style, performed in a manner that mixes rock and jazz styles, but all with a rough edge and a very rootsy feel. Macale is an enormous talent that's always been woefully overlooked by listeners outside of Brazil – but he's one of the greatest talents of the 70s, and this may well be his best album! Titles include "Farinha Do Desprezo", "Mal Secreto", "Hotel Das Estrelas", "78 Rotacoes", and "Movimento Dos Barcos". LP, Vinyl record album

Lloyd MillerJazz Piano ... CD
Eastern Arts, 2008. Used ... $2.99
Mostly contemporary work from pianist Lloyd Miller – performed on a modern keyboard with an acoustic sound, but still in the flowing, open style of some of his older work! Miller's mostly solo here, but he hits the keys with a really stretched-out quality – one that has him riffing up and down quickly, throwing in bits of other tones, and pushing forward with a sense of fullness that's different from the usual solo piano set. As with others of Lloyd's self-released albums, there's a heck of a lot of music here – over 70 minutes of tunes that include "Gol E Gandom", "Doxy", "Blue Rue", "Lover Man", "Lloyd's Blues", "All The Things You Are", "Ack Varmeland Du Skona", "Pentologic", and "3/4 Blues".

✨✧ Jards MacaleAnos 70s (Jards Macale/AprenderA Nadar/Raros E Inedito) (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor/Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at the 70s work of Jards Macale – a singer/songwriter who was almost as important to his generation as Caetano Veloso or Tom Ze! First up is the 1972 self-titled album Jards Macale – an album that we'd rank right up there with work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, or Lo Borges from the same time – with an underground singer/songwriter style, performed in a manner that mixes rock and jazz styles, but all with a rough edge and a very rootsy feel. Macale is an enormous talent that's always been woefully overlooked by listeners outside of Brazil – but he's one of the greatest talents of the 70s, and this may well be his best album! Titles include "Farinha Do Desprezo", "Mal Secreto", "Hotel Das Estrelas", "78 Rotacoes", and "Movimento Dos Barcos". Also features 3 bonus tracks – "Anjo Exterminado", "Movimento Dos Barcos", and "Rua Real Grandeza". Next is Aprender A Nadar, from 1974 – a record that only seems to deepen the songwriting skills of Jards, while also giving him more confidence on the vocal tip. There's still plenty of sharp edges throughout – on material that ranges from post-Tropicalia MPB, to mellow tracks delivered in a smooth soulful voice. Titles include "Jards Anet Da Vida", "Sois Coracoes", "Imagens", "Dona De Castelo", "Estatutos Da Gafieira", "Mambo Da Cantareira", and "E Dai". Also fetaures bonus tracks – demos of "Boneca Semitoica", "Dona De Castelo", "Rua Real Grandeza", "Anjo Exterminado", and "Senhor Dos Sabados". Box set also features 2 more CDs of rare and unissued tracks – 24 more titles that run from Jards' earliest years on record, to some overlooked tracks from later years too! CD

✨✧ ManhattansDedicated To You/For You And Yours ... CD
Carnival/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Masterpiece soul material! The Manhattans in the 60's were an amazingly precise group that managed to swing, yet still hit a totally soulful groove. This CD presents their first two albums in complete form, features 24 solid tracks, nearly all of them original compositions – and the sound is completely wonderful, a harmony soul fan's delight! Unlike other acts of this nature, too, the group never really recorded any filler – and all the tracks on the set are as great as the singles that formed the bigger hits at the time. Titles include "Follow Your Heart", "That New Girl", "Searchin For My Baby", "I Call It Love", "I Betcha", "There Goes A Fool", "Baby, I'm Sorry", "For The Very First Time", and "I Wanna Be". CD

✨✧ Billy Taylor Trio With Earl May & Percy BriceBilly Taylor Trio With Earl May & Percy Brice (Billy Taylor At Town Hall/Touch Of Taylor) ... CD
Prestige, 1954/1955. Used ... $8.99
2 early classics from pianist Billy Taylor – back to back on one CD, and both featuring his classic 50s trio with bassist Earl May and drummer Percy Brice! The tracks are mostly short and simple, and done in Taylor's warmly rhythmical approach to the keys – a groove that was clearly informed by the hardbop of the time, but which laid back in a much more soulful formation. The set features a total of 17 tracks from the albums Billy Taylor At Town Hall (oddly recorded in the studio!) and A Touch Of Taylor – with titles that include "Theodora", "I'll Remember April", "How High The Moon", "A Bientot", "Early Bird", "Day Dreaming", "Radioactivity", "Long Tom", and "Daddy O".

TriageTwenty Minute Cliff ... CD
Okka Disk, 2003. Used ... $8.99
Bracing work from the trio of Dave Rempis (saxes), Jason Ajemian (bass), and Tim Daisy (drums) – very much in the best power-trio mode that seems to be one of the specialties of the Okka Disk label! The style is informed both by freer improv work of the European scene, and also by the contemplative moments of the AACM – and titles include "Sound Sound", "Sun Dawgs", "Lamento", "Leo's Leaving The Room", "Portrait Of The Stone Age", and "River Rouge".

Vaudou GameKidayu ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
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". CD

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.

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Jordan De La SierraGymnosphere – Song Of The Rose ... LP
Unity/Numero, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Spacey piano work from Jordan De La Sierra – material that's clearly informed by the 60s experiments of La Monte Young and Terry Riley, but which also has a more open, spiritual quality too! The piano has a nice sense of tuning – one that's almost watery at points – and Jordan's in no rush to let the notes unfold, as he often waits for one to resonate out before starting the next – which creates this very spacious, meditative quality throughout – a mode that's also inspired by Indian music, but much more laidbck and North California! The package reproduces the original 2LP set – complete with artwork and original notes. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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!)

Sony, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 6LP ... Out Of Stock
An insanely wonderful legacy in music – with some of the most important solo albums by Lou Reed – packaged here in one fantastically-done deluxe set! The sounds alone are worth the price of admission – music that begins with early post-Velvet Underground material recorded for RCA – with Reed reinventing himself as a gender-twisting poet of the New York scene – to a run great albums for Arista, where Reed deepened his skills as a songwriter – to an 80s return to RCA, where the singer emerged with a new sort of mature, positive outlook! Lou's a genius at every step of the way – and continues that here with his supervision of all the albums, and this overall package – done before his passing away, and his last legacy on record. Hal Willner also helped put the project together, and contributes beautiful notes to oversized book – which is filled with rare photos, art and other items from Reed's personal collection – and the heavy LP box includes 6 incredible albums from the early 70s to early 80s – Transformer, Berlin, Rock N Roll Animal, Coney Island Baby, Street Hassle and The Blue Mask.

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoFanfare For The Warriors ... CD
Koch/Atlantic, 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

BYG/Fuel 2000, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
2 classics by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – back to back on one CD! At the time they were taking Paris by storm, the Art Ensemble recorded these brilliant albums – both of which are some of their strongest early work, far more well-formed than any of their individual expressions recorded earlier in Chicago! The CD features the group at their best – playing very tightly, but also with a sense of whimsy and imagination, and the kind of free-thinking exploration that informed a whole generation of jazz musicians, offering a different mode of expression than the spiritualism of the post-Coltrane years. Includes "A Brain For The Seine", a real classic by the band – plus "Jackson In Your House", "Get In Line", "Song for Charles", "Dexterity" and "Old Time Religion", and "Rock Out". CD
