✨✧ Max RoachMax Roach Quartet Featuring Hank Mobley ... CD
Debut/OJC, 1953. Used ... $17.99
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

Mel TormeThat's All (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1966. Used ... $4.99
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".

✨✧ Spontaneous Music OrchestraSearch & Reflect ... CD
Emanem (UK), 1973/1975/1981. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Not our usual bag, but some nice later material from George Lewis, performed with a sextet that includes Jim Robinson, Alvin Acorn, Alcide Pavageau, Joe Robichaux, and Joe Watkins. Titles include "Riverside Blues", "Streets Of The City", "Weary Blues", and "Runnin Wild". David Stone Martin cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album

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.

Benny GoodmanLive At Carnegie Hall – 40th Anniversary Concert ... LP
Phase 4, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
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".

Jose JamesDreamer ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2007. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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

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 ... $79.99
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

✨✧ TriageTwenty Minute Cliff ... CD
Okka Disk, 2003. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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 (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

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

✨✧ Boz ScaggsMoments ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ GimmicksBrasilian Samba ... LP
Omega (Sweden), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
The warmth of Brazil meets the cool breeze of Sweden – and the result is an album that's as groovy as groovy can be! The Swedish combo The Gimmicks perform a set of tunes that's very much in the Sergio Mendes/Brasil 66 mode – harmony vocals over the top of bossa arrangements, all sparkling with a sweet 60s finish! The tunes are great – and include favorites like "Look Around", "Roda", "The Joker", "Walk On By", "Chove Chuva", and "Look Of Love", as well as less-performed gems like "Boink", "California My Way", and "Bom Bom Bay". The album sits perfectly next to your A&M classics – and it's a heck of a lot rarer too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Urbie GreenUrbie Green Septet & Octet (New Faces New Sounds/Urbie Green & His Band/Urbie) ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1953/1954/1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seminal modern work from trombonist Urbie Green – a collection that features him at the head of a largeish group on three different sessions! First up is material from a 10" Blue Note album titled New Faces New Sounds – a beautiful set of modernist bop tracks has GReen leading a septet with some other lively, lesser-known young players, including Jimmy Lyon on piano, Doug Mettome on trumpet, John Murtaugh on tenor, and Sam Staff on baritone. This is killer stuff from the days when the Blue Note image wasn't so clearly formed as it was in the late 50s – with titles like "Johnbo Mambo", "La Salle", and "Incubator". Next up are 4 more titles from a rare 10" LP – Urbie Green & His Band, featuring Freddie Green on guitar (instead of Raney), Ruby Braff on trumpet, Med Flory on alto, Frank Wess on tenor and flute, and Sir Charles Thompson on piano. The sound is somewhat more traditional, but never too much so – and tracks include "Med's Tune", "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Old Time Modern", and "I Got It Bad". Last up is the full Bethlehem album Urbie – one of the strongest albums ever cut by trombonist Urbie Green – a player who had a heck of a lot of talent, but who unfortunately could sometimes end up in some schmaltzy settings. Fortunately, this isn't one of them – as the group includes players like Jimmy Lyon on piano, Oscar Pettiford on bass, Osie Johnson on drums, and Ike Horowitz on tenor – actually a nom-du-date for Al Cohn! The arrangements are tight, but never too much so – and there's a good degree of spirit in both the playing, and the compositions – some of which are by arranger Marion Evans. Titles include "Sneaky Pete", "Sassafras", "Melody In Bb", "How About You", and "Mutation". CD features 19 tracks in all. CD
