✨✧ Marley MarlIn Control Vol 1 ... LP
Cold Chillin/Warner, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic first long player from Marley Marl! Marley Marl's infective, standard bearing studio genius graces all the tracks on this LP – with performances by Craig G, Roxanne Shante, MC Shan, Master Ace, Big Daddy Kane, and Biz Markie. The set collected singles Marley produced for the above mentioned Cold Chillin' stablemates of the period, and it represents the coming of the sampler revolution that was soon to take over hip hop. An uncontested classic, and a triumph of hip hop production wizardry! Features "The Symphony", plus "Droppin Science", "Simon Says", "The Rebel", and "Wack It" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has heavy wear.)

Nia, 1985. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Marley's classic debut single, with MC Shan, erroneously credited as DJ Shan. With a big beat drum machine style he'd later abandon for his funky sample based approach, some nice early scratching, and a sound that's waaaaay back to the old school – just a drum machine, Shan on the mic and Marley on the 1's and 2's, the roots of the QB sound! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 15.99
One of the best Harold Mabern albums we've heard in years – recorded with a trio of familiar partners, John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but in a freewheeling live setting that has the group really stretching out over some long, extended tracks! Mabern's sense of imagination in this setting is wonderful – and really takes us back to the soulful majesty we loved in his music during the 70s – and although a few numbers reflect the ballad mode of some of Harold's studio albums, even these have an open-ended creativity that really goes beyond the usual! Titles include "Dreaming", "Road Song", "Boogie For Al McShann", "Afro Blue", "Alone Together", and a surprisingly great take on "Sesame Street". CD

VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic India (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... Around April 18, 2015
A mad mix of sounds that definitely lives up to the title – as sitars, tabls, and other traditional Indian instruments come into play with fuzzy guitars and freaky rhythms! The work here is partly from the 60s, partly from later years inspired by the roots of the style – and the collection mixes together music from a nicely diverse array of sources, all in search of a new genre that really comes together in the course of the album. Titles include "Chamber Of Dreams" by Jazz Thali, "Thillana" by Jyotsna Srikanth, "Moksha" by Ray Spiegel Ensemble, "A Mystical Morning" by Debashish Bhattacharya with John McLaughlin, "Dancing Drums" by Ananda Shankar, "Dance Music" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Dum Maro Dum" by Asha Bhosle, and "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" by Sunday Driver. (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, 4/19/15.

✨✧ JJ FadAnotha Ho/Anotha Tramp/Supersonic ... 12-inch
Dream Team, 1987. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their first single, "Anotha Ho" is a kinda funny novelty track where JJ Fad dis most of the other female MCs from around that time (Roxanne Shante, Real Roxanne, Sparky D, Salt & Peppa), with a chorus "Anotha ho bites the dust" based on the Queen sample. Of course, "Supersonic" later went on to be the huge commercial radio hit. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceBlues In Trinity (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few American releases cut by the legendary British trumpeter Dizzy Reece – and a great one! The album was strange for Blue Note, in that it was a joint US/UK session – featuring American players Donald Byrd and Art Taylor, along with great Brit players Reece, Tubby Hayes, Terry Shannon, and Lloyd Thompson. Hayes is especially excellent here, and the record captures him at the peak of his young imaginative powers. With a two-trumpet frontline held down by Byrd and Reece, Hayes' tenor solos cut through hard and clean, with a deep soulful sound that makes him the most sparkling player on the session. Titles include "Close Up", "Blues In Trinity", "Color Blind", and "Round Midnight". CD features two bonus tracks – "Eboo" and "Just A Penny". CD

✨✧ Hajime YoshizawaJapan ... CD
Village Again (Japan), 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest efforts so far from Hajime Yoshizawa – a set that has some heavy jazz influences, and almost hearkens back to his roots – yet one that's also awash in some of his best 21st Century soul styles as well! The album has a snapping acoustic energy that's right up there with other Japanese club jazz work in recent years – and features lots of tight piano work from Yoshizawa, played with a sense of imagination and energy that we haven't heard from him in years – a depth that's almost like McCoy Tyner at his best – supported by rhythms that take us back to some of Curtis Lundy's best work of years past. Navasha Daya turns in a few great vocal performances here – really sparkling away from Fertile Ground, and sounding more like a jazz singer than ever before – and other tracks feature guest work by Akiko and Shanti. Brilliant stuff all around – and with 13 tracks that include "Bristlecone Pine", "Time", "Aska", "Eastern Step", "Celebration", "Satellite Dancer", "Rain", "May", "Seeds Of Spring", and "The Color Of Peace".

✨✧ VariousSouth African Funk Experience –- Zulu, Funky Disco, Shebeen Jive, Jo 'Burg Funk, Spiritual Jazz Dance , Shangaan & More ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of funky tracks from South Africa – most of them with a slightly different feel than work you'd get on other Afro Funk compilations – and we mean that in a good way, too! Some of the artists are names you'd recognize from later recordings of the big South African crossover years of the 80s and 90s – but they're represented here by harder, edgier cuts from the early days – and mixed up with some more obscure acts, too – which really helps bring a freshness to the set, especially given the interweaving of genres that goes on – as you might guess from the extended sub-title of the CD! Titles include "Sangoma" by Malombo, "Oh Yeh Soweto" by Teaspoon & The Waves, "Intombi Ibhinca Isidwaba" by Phuzushukela, "Kikzelani" by Nelcy Sedibe, "Hula Hoop Jive" by Kataki, "Andromeda" by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, "Malume" by Abafakasi, "Baloyi" by Dudu Pukwana & Spear, "Lily's Express" by Gwigwi Mrwebi, "Wozan Mahipi" by Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, and "Bayeza" by Soul Brothers.

✨✧ Burt BacharachTogether? – Original Soundtrack Recording ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost Burt Bacharach treasure – a bit later than classic vintage, but a wonderful album from the mature maestro – and sometimes overlooked, due to its status as a soundtrack! The work here is totally great – that mellow, easy-flowing style that Burt really perfected around the time of Living Together – served up here in a batch of sweet instrumental tracks, plus a few key vocal numbers with lyrics sung by Jackie DeShannon, Libby Titus, and Michael McDonald – all of whom slide down more into the Bacharach ethos than stand out as their usual selves – and we mean that in a good way! Titles include "I Don't Need You Any More", "In Tune", "If We Ever Get Out Of Here", "On The Beach", "I've Got My Mind Made Up", "Find Love", "Luisa", and "I Think I'm Gonna Fall In Love". CD
