Malcolm McLarenFans ... LP
Island, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
After his Duck Rock/Buffalo Scratch days, this was Malcolm McLaren's next project – an attempt to update opera into a post-disco, hip-hop inflected dancefloor sound. The groove takes electronic beats and layers vocals and washes of sound over the top – presenting famous vocal passages with a sense of camp and knowledge of opera that may well be the closest thing McLaren ever came to outing himself! Includes the sublime hit "Madam Butterfly", plus "Carmen", "Fans", "Boy's Chorus", and "Death Of Butterfly". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Carlos MalcolmBustin Outta The Ghetto ... CD
AJP/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Funky madness – and one of the greatest funky instrumental albums ever! This one's so rare that only a few funk collectors have it in their collection – but it's a totally massive bit of funk that's way more than just plain "rare" (which can sometimes also mean snoozy for collectors!) Malcolm's a funky bandleader from Kingston, Jamaica – and he's got an approach that's solidly rooted in American funk, but which also has slight (very slight) touches of Carribean rhythms. The record's not really reggae or rocksteady, but it's got a messed up groove that works perfectly – as the sharp funky instrumental tunes crack out with these odd jagged edges, or weirdly paced rhythms that make them even more compelling. A wonderful record, and way past the usual funky instrumental album. Just about every cut is excellent – and titles include "Bustin Outta The Ghetto", "Funky Junction", "Move With The Beat", "Track Full Of Soul", "Pound For Pound", and "Rockin In My Pocket". CD

✨✧ Malcolm XHis Wit & Wisdom ... LP
Douglas, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest albums of recordings we've heard by Malcolm X – issued on the Douglas Records label, and featuring shorter snippets of longer speeches. The package is put together with a strong focus on Malcolm's true charisma as a speaker – his incredible ability to deliver righteous messages with a down-home charm and a good degree of wit. Very nice stuff – and although we wish the set had better notes, we're more than happy to listen without them! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Archie SheppPoem For Malcolm (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from Archie Shepp – a record that's filled with meaning and power, and which really stands out as a freer expression of his ideals while working on the European scene! The players here are an array of other BYG/Actuel luminaries – including Burton Green on piano, Grachan Moncur on trombone, Malachi Favors and Alan Silva on bass, and Philly Joe Jones and Claude Delcloo on drums. Hank Mobley makes a surprising appearance on a version of "Oleo" – joining Shepp's tenor after the first half of the track, which is titled "Rain Forrest". That side-long track is complemented by another long number on the flip – "Mamarose/Poem For Malcolm" – a very spiritual track with some nice vocalizations too. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleMalcolm X Memorial (A Tribute In Music) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant tribute to the late Malcolm X – served up by Chicago's legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble! The record's got an even farther-reaching sound than the group's self-titled effort – a flowing style that unfolds as their tribute to Malcolm rolls on – starting spare and earthy at first, then picking up a fuller, prouder, much more righteous groove as things really get going! As before, there's plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom of most tracks – topped by complicated horn passages that often verge on the exotic – and which have a tremendously captivating sound. The ensemble's led by the great Phil Cohran, who played with Sun Ra for a bit, and also plays cornet on the record – the rest of the group includes Charles Williams, Don Myrick, Louis Satterfield, Pete Cosey, Henry Gibson, Willie Woods, and Aaron Dodd – a lineup of players who also worked with Sun Ra, The Pharoahs, and Earth Wind & Fire! The LP's a suite of 4 tracks dedicated to Malcolm X, each capturing a period of his life, "Malcolm Little", "Detroit Red", "Malcolm X", and "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz". CD

Gaslamp KillerInstrumentalepathy (2 X 10 inch LP – with download) ... LP
Cuss, 2016. New Copy 2 X 10" Gatefold ... $23.99 24.98
Heady sounds from Gaslamp Killer – tunes that are as fuzzy as they are funky – which might be something that we'd say about the man himself! As with other productions, there's definitely a focus on the low end and lo-fi here – but never as a lack of anything, or as a mistake – as the music clearly knows how to make the most out of distortion, and use it to create just the right sort of rumble to go along with the right funky currents! Malcolm Catto guests on the album on one track – and the music is definitely in the legacy he first began years ago on Mo Wax – and other guests include Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Heliocentrics, and Gonjasufi. Titles include "Good Morning", "Pathetic Dreams", "Gammalaser Kill", "Shred You To Bits", "The Butcher", "Residual Tingles", "Warm Wind", and "Haleva". LP, Vinyl record album

BBC Radiophonic Workshop21 Years (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
BBC/Silva Screen, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 36.98
A glorious celebration of the first 21 years of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – an institution attached to a major broadcasting network, but one that also served as a crucial place of experimentation in electronic music! The album was issued in 1979, and brings together a huge amount of short experimental snippets of sounds – some of which were done for commercial broadcasting, either as themes or sound effects – but others which feel like they might have been way too far out for even radio or TV! The collection mixes together some big names in electronic music and some lesser-known talents – and the way that the short tunes fit together, the whole thing feels like some mad electronic collage in sound. Includes contributions from Delia Derbyshire, Paddy Kingsland, Roger Limb, Malcolm Clarke, Maddalena Fagandini, Desmond Briscoe, Keith Salmon, Tony Askew, Jimmy Burnett, Phil Young, and others.

BBC Radiophonic WorkshopSoundhouse (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
BBC/Silva Screen, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from one of the coolest spots in the universe – the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop, home to a mix of surprisingly groovy and experimental electronic music! This album was issued on the 25th anniversary of the sonic institution – and it features a strong mix of older analogue styles with some more 80s-oriented electronics – yet still with all the depth you'd expect from the Radiophonic Workshop during its classic years! These aren't tinny slasher keyboards, or electro pop programs – and instead, the music here is as thoughtful and compelling as the sounds created during the Delia Derbyshire generation – but are handled by artists who include Peter Howell, Paddy Kingsland, Dick Mills, Jonathan Gibbs, Elizabeth Parker, and Malcolm Clarke. Titles include "Mainstream", "Radiophonic Rock", "Computers In The Real World", "Rallyman", "Seascape", "Land & People", "Houdini's Magic Box", "Ghost In The Water", "Planet Earth", and "Catch The Wind".

Michael Cosmic/Phill Musra GroupPeace In The World/Creator Spaces (with bonus download) ... LP
Cosmic/Now Again, 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing package – a pair of rare avant jazz albums, presented here together! The first album is Peace In The World – maybe the only album issued under the name of Michael Cosmic – but a set that's part of a key legacy with his brother, reedman Phill Musra! The set has Cosmic in very heady territory – sounds that come from his young tenure in the AACM, his brief time with Cecil Taylor, and his budding reputation on the 70s Boston scene – where the set was recorded, and almost stands as a precursor to the rich legacy of improvisational jazz that would emerge on the New England scene for decades to come! Tracks are long and very free, but have spiritual currents too – and Cosmic is mostly on piano, with Musra on soprano sax and tenor, Leonard Brown on soprano and tenor, John Jamyll Jones on bass, Huseyin Ertunc on drums, and Eric Jackson on percussion. Titles include "We Love You Malcolm X", "Peace In The World", "Sapce On Space", and "Arabia". Next is the related album Creator Spaces, by Phill Musra – recorded at the time when he was part of the very underground Boston avant scene – a world that had a slightly different vibe than music coming from Chicago, Detroit, or New York! The album's got a spiritual avant bent – soulful at the core, with lots of references to outer space as well – and an approach that feels a lot like a classic Saturn Records session by Sun Ra, both in sound and spirit! Musra plays reeds, chimes, and percussion – and the group features some incredible sax work by Michael Cosmic, who also plays a bit of organ, again in a tripped-out, Ra-type way. Huseyin Ertunc plays percussion – very free and loose, in ways that are a great balance to the more angular lines of the reeds – and tracks include "The Creator Is So Far Out", "The Creator Spaces", "Egypt", and "Arabia".

Tommy GuerreroLittle Bit Of Somethin ... LP
Mo Wax/Be With (UK), 2000. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 34.98
Tommy's first album for Mo Wax – and a masterpiece of offbeat funk! Guerrero plays all the instruments here – funky drums, bass, guitar, and lots of keyboards – and the style is very much in keeping with the best Mo Wax funk from artists like Money Mark or Malcolm Catto – tracks that don't try to sound like vintage funk at all, but which show a love of that style, through the ears of a musician who had grown up with lots of hip hop inspiration too! You might even consider the whole thing a precursor to some of the later Madlib instrumentals – and titles include "Blue Masses", "Four Trk Samba", "Numb Millennium", "Pescadito", "Azucar", "Flux & Meter", "It's Raining Again", "Today Like Everyday", "Soul Miner", and "So Blue It's Black".

Margo Guryan29 Demos (red & blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99 36.98
Really wonderful work from Margo Guryan – an artist who was probably known more as a songwriter than a singer – especially for her groovy late 60s pop tunes! This package is heavy on those gems – presented in these great demo takes that are nice and stripped-down – often with just a bit of rhythm and electric piano in support of Guryan's sweet vocals – which echo the modes of Claudine Longet and some of the other artists of the time who sung her music. The set's an expanded version of a previous collection, and features great work from the late 60s and early 70s – titles that include "I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You", "Sun", "The 8:17 Northbound Success Merry Go Round", "Sunday Morning", "I Love", "I'd Like To See The Bad Guys Win", "California Shake", "Why Do I Cry", "Under My Umbrella", and "Timothy Gone". LP package features two tracks not issued on the CD set – and also includes a Chip Taylor demo of "Someone I Know" and Malcolm McNeill demo of "Think Of Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Virgin/Atlantic, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The third solo album from Steve Hillage – a much more focused effort than before, and a record that features production from Malcolm Cecil of Tonto's Expanding Head Band! The album's still got plenty of trademark Hillage guitar work, but it's also got a fair bit more focused tunes than before too – a bit less jamming and more hook-heavy vocals – all wrapped up in some nicely fuzzy production from Cecil. The album's still a fair bit darker than you might guess from the cheesy cover – and titles include "Saucer Surfing", "Octave Doctors", "Not Fade Away", "Motivation", "Hello Dawn", and "Light In The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

IncognitoClassic Album Series (Who Needs Love/Adventures In Black Sunshine/Eleven/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 2002/2004/2005. New Copy 3 CDs ... $14.99
Three great albums from Incognito – served up at a mighty nice price, and with bonus tracks too! Who Needs Love is a gem from over a decade ago – and Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy Rose, Kelli Sae, Tony Momrelle, Joy Malcolm, and Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta! The range of voices on the set really gives it a lot of depth – moving past the easy jazz funk moments of earlier sets, and going for an all-solid, all-soulful approach that really blows our mind! Great stuff all the way through – maybe their best album in years – and a record you'll be playing into the next decade. Titles include "Morning Sun", "Who Needs Love", "Stone Cold Heart", "Where Love Shines", "Blue", "Fly", "If You Want My Love", and "Cada Dia". On Adventures In Black Sunshine, the groove is sweetly soulful, with a jazzy undercurrent that hearkens back to the best west coast soul of the 70s – and Bluey's got the group honed to perfection, playing with a razor-sharp edge that keeps the tunes as funky as they are soulful! Vocals are by Maysa and Tony Momrelle – and tracks include "Don't Turn My Love Away", "This Thing Called Love", "The Principles Of Love", "Everything Your Heart Desires", "Close My Eyes", "25th Chapter", and "Mr Jones". Eleven is a record that's a great testament to Incognito's richly-collaborative spirit – a quality that makes plenty of room here for lead vocals by Maysa Leak, Imaani, and Carleen Anderson – and which benefits strongly from some great keyboard lines by Ski Oakenfull. But as usual, mainman Bluey is the one to thank for the record – because his sense of groove, and love of classic 70s-influenced soul comes through very strongly on all tracks – hitting an on-the-money sound that makes the group, and this latest album, stand head to head with some of the best soul acts of classic years. Another winner from Incognito – not a bit of fluff at all – and a sublime batch of tracks that includes "Jacaranda", "Show Me Love", "We Got Music", "Let The Mystery Be", "Will I Ever Learn", "I'll Get By", "As Long As It's You", and "When Tomorrow Brings You Down". Bonus tracks include the previously-unreleased "To Prove My Love" and "Feel The Real" – plus "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)". CD

Gruff RhysSet Fire To The Stars ... LP
Twisted Nerve (UK), 2016. Sealed ... $9.99
A really great soundtrack from Gruff Rhys – a set that's maybe even more personal and beautiful than some of his more familiar records on his own! The music's for a film about the first week that poet Dylan Thomas spent in America in the 50s – but the sound is quite different from any sort of period scoring you might expect – which makes for a great juxtaposition with the images on the screen – as Rhys works with a small group, in instrumental modes that are heavy on guitar and piano, and beautifully augmented by string ensembles on a few especially nice tracks. Some titles have vocals, but most of the set's instrumental – and Elijah Wood, who's in the film, makes an appearance on the final track. Titles include "It Was Hot That Summer", "After Hours/Contentment", "Ticking Clock", "Set Fire To The Stars", "John Malcolm Brinnin", "Log Cabin 1", "Atom Bomb", and "Chop Shop".

One of Mongo Santamaria's best albums from the 70s – and one of his funkiest too! The record's got a sweet electric groove that sounds mighty nice next to the Latin jazz arrangements on the set – almost in the feel of some of Candido's funky work from the time, but possibly even heavier! Justo Almario is on tenor and flute in the set – and Mongo's group here is a small combo, with electric bass, piano, and lots of sax and flute! Includes loads of great original tunes – like "Chambique", "Don't Step On My Tears", "Crazy Lady", "Besame", and "Malcolm X" – plus Mongo's semi-hit version of "Last Tango In Paris".

Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". CD

The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". Nina At Carnegie Hall is a hip set of live tracks from Nina Simone – very dark and moody, with backing by only a small combo that includes two guitars, bass, and drums by Montego Joe. The songs are incredibly spare, with an approach that's intimate and emotional – almost stunningly so, considering the size and scope of the venue that Nina was performing in. Features a 7 minute reading of "The Other Woman" and "Cotton Eyed Joe" – plus "Black Swan", "If You Knew", "Theme From Sayonara", and "Will I Find My Love Today". CD

VP, 1960s. Used ... $6.99
Excellent work from the earliest years of The Skatalites – a time when the group were one of the sharpest things going in Jamaican music, and also added musical support to a number of singers as well! This killer collection brings together the hippest singles from the combo – work that's very different than some of the sounds of their revival years – with a fresh, youthful quality that effortlessly mixes influences from R&B and jazz with the nascent Jamaican grooves of blue beat and ska! Most tunes here are instrumentals by the group, but there's also a few vocal tracks too – and titles include "Rum Bumpers" by John & Alton, "Home Home Home" by Ken & Stranger, "Mouth A Massy" by Alton Ellis, "Portrait Of My Love" by Baba Brooks, and "John & James" by The Maytals – plus "Black Joe", "Hello Mother", "Malcolm X", "Collie Bud", and "Baby Elephant Walk" by The Skatalites.

Malcolm Catto produced the first side of the record, and he really gets the sound of the drums and guitar just right – and manages to even make the bass and keyboards sound a bit fuzzy – and the second half of the record maybe brings the guitar up a bit more, going for this weird trippy psych take on the instrumental modes! There's a bit of vocals in the blend – mostly on the final track – and the record also features some tenor, clarinet, and moog too. Titles include "Dark Is The Light", "Jaywalk", "Switchblade", and "Lu 13". LP, Vinyl record album

Vanishing TwinChoose Your Own Adventure ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
Malcolm Catto is at the production helm for this sweet debut set from Vanishing Twin – and you can definitely hear his touches in the music – which is often funky and trippy at the same time! The group themselves have kind of a fuzz-frequency vibe that lies somewhere between late 60s French pop psych, and maybe the revived analogue modes of the 90s – with echoey drums, swirling organ and keyboard lines, and vocals that seem nicely compressed down into the mix – but in a way that gives them more Silver Apples-like power. But there's also some moodier, spookier moments too – almost soundtrack elements from time to time, especially at the more obtuse instrumental points – which almost feel like they could have come from a Finders Keepers reissue. Titles include "Under The Water", "Eggs", "Truth Is Boring", "Choose Your Own Adventure", "Telescope", "Vanishing Twin Syndrome", and "The Conservation Of Energy". LP, Vinyl record album

Brainfeeder, 2015. New Copy 3 CDs ... $26.99 28.98
A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

Be! (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $129.99 199.99
A huge document of this incredible year in jazz in Germany – a time when free styles were breaking out all over, alongside some of the groovier styles of the MPS scene as well! This beautiful box documents the 12th German Jazz Festival in three different concerts – amazing music that really shows the transformation that was taking place at the time – and which is still revolutionary all these many years later – making for a listening experience that makes us feel like we're hearing music from the future, and not over 40 years in the past! The range of performers here is amazing – and CD 1 features a long performance The German Festival Big Band – with reeds from Emil Mangelsdorff, Heinz Sauer, Joki Freund, and Gerd Dudek; trombones from Albert Mangelsdorff and Peter Herbolzheimer, trumpets from Frederic Rabold and Manfred Schoof, guitar from Volker Kriegel, bass from Gunter Lenz, and drums from Kurt Bong and Rolf Hubner – plus four long tracks from the Dave Pike Set, with stellar vibes and guitar! CD2 features the Albert Mangelsdorff Quartet, with trombone from the leader, and alto and tenor from Heinz Sauer – plus a group led by Wolfgang Dauner on piano, clavichord, and ring modulator – with Ack Van Rooyen on trumpet, Joki Freund on tenor and soprano sax, Peter Herbolzheimer on trombone, and Gerd Dudek on flute and tenor. CD3 features Karin Krog singing on two long tracks penned by Dave Pike, who plays vibes in a group that also includes Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone – and the rest of the CD features Phil Woods European Rhythm Machine, with Gordon Beck on Fender Rhodes. CD4 features two long tracks by the Klaus Doldinger Quartet with Ingfried Hoffmann on organ; three more tracks from the Frederic Rabold Crew, with the leader on trumpet and alto horn; and one more track from the Jazzworkers Quintet. CD5 features the Frankfurter Trio Fur Improvisation, with Christian Mollers on clarinet, Wolf Burbat on flute, and Klaus Henning Usadel on bass – plus one long track by Just Music with Alfred Harth on tenor and clarinet, Johannes Kramer on guitar, Dieter Hermann on trombone, and Franz Volhard and Thomas Stowsand on cellos – as well as two tracks by the Modern Jazz Quintet Karlsruhe, which features Herbert Joos on flugelhorn and Wilfried Eichorn on reeds. CD6 features a long track by Free Jazz Group Wiesbaden – and another long track from Limbus 4 – a group that features a lot of flutes, percussion, and diverse instrumentation. CD7 features a reading of "F*ck Der Boere" by the Peter Brotzmann Group, which also includes Evan Parker and Willem Breuker on reeds, plus Malcolm Griffiths and Paul Rutherford on trombone – as well as Derek Bailey on guitar and Han Bennink on percussion. The CD also features a long track by the New Jazz Trio of trumpeter Manfred Schoof. CD8 features work by the Alexander Von Schlippenbach Trio, the Pierre Favre Group, and the quartet of Joachim & Rolf Kuhn. CD9 is maybe the most amazing – as it features a long track that merges German players with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – billed as the European Free Jazz Orchestra Of The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – as well as work by Gunter Hampel with Jeanne Lee. An insanely wonderful package – filled with free, avant, and groovy jazz we've never heard before! CD
