New ScrewballWho Shot Rudy? (dirty, clean, inst)/ You Love To Hear The Stories (dirty, clean, inst) ... 12-inch 12-Inch
Screwball, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Another track about the assasination of the mayor of NYC. This one is a whole lot more specific – and to our ears, a lot funnier – than the earlier rhyme attacks on Rudy Guliani. From the intro using the 'If you see a devil smash him' sample to the line "like the Jews celebratin when Pharoah got killed..." Godfather Don produces "You Love To Hear The Stories" where Screwball deliver some nice rhymes looking back on the history of Queens MC's from Shan & Marley Marl up through Mobb Deep, etc. (One of the members of Screwball is MC Poet, who recorded "Beat You Down" as part of the whole BDP/Queensbridge battles back then...) 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Harold MabernLive At Smalls ... CD CD format
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

Hajime YoshizawaJapan ... CD CD format
Village Again (Japan), 2008. New Copy ... $26.99
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".

New Jay McShannBig Apple Bash (Jazzlore) ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A much groovier record than you might expect – hardly the older-styled jazz session normally associated with Jay McShann, and more of a wide-ranging session that brings in some great contemporary touches! The album's something of a celebration for Jay – and it features wonderful guest work from players who include Gerry Mulligan on baritone and soprano sax, Herbie Mann on flute and tenor sax, John Scofield on guitar, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, and Eddie Gomez on bass. A few tunes have an older Kansas City sort of swing, but others have a vamping groove that's really great – and these numbers really stand out in the set with some great solo moments. Titles include "Crazy Legs & Friday Strut", "Blue Feeling", "Jumpin The Blues", "Dickie's Dream", and "I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water". LP, Vinyl record album
(Atlantic Jazzlore pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

New VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic India ... CD CD format
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

New VariousSouth African Funk Experience –- Zulu, Funky Disco, Shebeen Jive, Jo 'Burg Funk, Spiritual Jazz Dance , Shangaan & More ... CD CD format
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.

New Burt BacharachTogether? – Original Soundtrack Recording ... CD CD format
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
