Mel TormeOle Torme ... LP
Verve, 1959. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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

Max RoachMax Roach Quartet Featuring Hank Mobley ... CD
Debut/OJC, 1953. Used ... $11.99
Killer stuff! Despite the early date and boppish orientation of the material on this CD, the tracks have a sinister modernist edge that easily belies the later work of both Max Roach and Hank Mobley – and which presents the pair here working with unbelievable power! The set kicks off with the incredible stormer "Cou Manchi Cou", then slides into a crackling batch of cuts that include "Mobleyzation", "Chi Chi", "Sfax", and "Orientation". There's lots of amazing drum work, and some incredible arrangements that show a very far-reaching sensibility on Roach's part. Plus, the CD also comes with a bonus "part 2" to the track "Drum Conversation"! CD

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

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

Laetitia Sadier Source EnsembleFind Me Finding You ... CD
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $8.99
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 ... $24.99
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".

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!)

PsychograssNow Hear This ... CD
Adventure Music, 2005. Used ... $4.99
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 ... $19.99
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

1968 LP that brings together some older Brazilian artists – like Clementina De Jesus, Nelson Cavaquinho, Odete Armal, Cartola, and Zezinho – on a set of tracks with a more traditional feel. Most of the titles are performed in batches, with the roots of 3 or 4 songs strung together during an individual performance. Titles include "Sempre Mangueira", "Despedida De Mangueira", "Ao Amanhecer", "Mundo De Zinco", and "Quem Me Ve Sorrindo". CD

✨✧ Urbie GreenUrbie Green Septet – New Faces New Sounds (10 inch LP) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer lost album from the early days of Blue Note – the original 10" LP! Urbie Green's normally a snoozer to us, but this beautiful set of modernist bop tracks has him leading a septet with some other lively young players, including Jimmy Lyon, who we know, and many others who we don't – like Doug Mettome, John Murtaugh, and Sam Staff. This is killer stuff from the days when the Blue Note image wasn't so clearly formed as it was in the late 50s – the sound is great – with titles like "Johnbo Mambo", "La Salle", and "Incubator" – and the cover and packaging are stunning! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sounds Of SynanonPrince Of Peace ... LP
Epic, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
David Axelrod move over – because The Sounds Of Synanon have definitely got your number! The ensemble, as you might guess from the title, was formed at the famous Synanon center for drug rehabilitation – a hotbed of musical activity in the 60s, as lots of bigger name artists were easily getting busted for possession. This set's arranged and conducted by Greg Dykes, and has a similar blend of jazz, airy production, and religious influences as you'd find on Axelrod's important late 60s albums – with a choir singing vocals on some tracks, as well as some really great breakout jazz performances by artists that include Clifford Scott, Wendell Harrison, Victor Feldman, Gerald Wiggins, and Esther Phillips. Tracks are long, spacious, and have a great gliding groove – and titles include "Arise Shine", "Now It Came To Pass", "Quiet Sky", "Shepherds", and "I Will Greatly Rejoice". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Benny GoodmanLive At Carnegie Hall – 40th Anniversary Concert ... LP
Phase 4, 1978. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Sadao WatanabeSong Book ... LP
Sony (Japan), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful chapter in the career of reedman Sadao Watanabe – a batch of mostly original compositions, as you might guess from the title – and a double-length record that really showed an evolution of his talents! The sound is often highly lyrical – with Watanabe blowing alto, soprano sax, and flute in modes that are clearly informed by his bossa nova recordings of the late 60s, but which also spring forth in even more complicated styles – with echoes of French soundtracks, European jazz, and other sweet styles of the time. The group's a small one – with Yoshiaki Masuo on guitar, Kazuo Yashiro on acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes, Masabumi Kikuchi on piano, Yoshio Suzuki on bass, and Fumio Watanabe on drums – and titles include "Train Samba", "Doria's Step", "Street Samba", "Fandango", "Lady Mako", "Dear Old Days", "If I Said The Sky Was Falling", and "Matsuri No Asa Ni".

✨✧ Jose JamesDreamer ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The stunning debut of a really tremendous talent – a singer we'd put right up there with Jon Lucien or Terry Callier for his uniquely soulful approach to music! Like both of those previous stars, Jose James has a voice that's completely his own – a way of approaching a tune that instantly defies genres – but never in those cloying cliched ways that weigh down the Starbucks generation of singer/songwriters! Instead, James has a breathy presence that reminds us of Nina Simone at her best – and like Callier, he's clearly informed by jazz, but not truly a jazz singer – more of an open-minded cat who's able to embrace a broad history of sound, then work it out into his own personal musical vision. Instrumentation here is mostly small combo – piano, keyboards, guitar, trumpet, bass, and drums – used in a simple but shifting array to fit the mood of each new tune. Trust us, this is one you'll file with your classics right away! Titles include "Spirits Up Above", "Blackeyedsusan", "The Dreamer", "Velvet", "Red", "Winter Wind", "Desire", "Love", and "Park Bench People". CD

✨✧ 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.
