Carlos MalcolmBustin Outta The Ghetto ... CD
AJP/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
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

Archie SheppPoem For Malcolm (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
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
Zulu/Katalyst/Tizona, 1968. New Copy ... About June 1, 2016
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Silva Screen, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A double-header of Doctor Who soundtracks – both from film spinoffs of the mid 60s! The first LP features music by Malcolm Lockyer, some more standard dramatic, some nicely sci-fi – and the set also includes a fair bit of music not used in the film! Second LP features one side of Bill McGuffie's music for Daleks' Invasion Of Earth 2150 AD – some music, sound sound effects, and some mixed together in a great way. And the flipside of that record features more sound effects, composed by Barry Gray – plus the singles "The Eccentric Dr Who", "Fugue For Thought", and "Daleks & Thals". LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Dennis BrownVisions Of Dennis Brown ... LP
17 North Parade, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
The late night lover gets on the African Roots wagon and heads deep into Rasta territory with Joe Gibbs at the helm on this mid 70s gem! Dennis Brown was well established as a leading Lovers Rock and Jamaican soul singer by the time he cut this excellent roots effort for Joe Gibbs in the mid 70s, and the transformation is noteworthy. Brown's vocals pair wonderfully with Gibbs' heavy roots rhythms for a combination that's among either man's finest work! 10 excellent tracks in all, including "Deliverance Will Come", "Love Me Always", "Concrete Castle King", "Malcolm X", "Repatriation", "Milk & Honey" and "Stay At Home".

CanMonster Movie (with bonus download) ... LP
Spoon/Mute, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 20.98
The massive debut from Can – one of our favorite art rock albums ever – and a record we can hardly believe was recorded in the late 60s given that it's a couple decades ahead of the pack! Monster Movie indeed roars – but does so with an unselfconscious feel that are the hallmark of the Can sound! This is the original line up with vocalist Malcolm Mooney, bassist Holger Czukay, guitarist Michael Karoli, organist Irmin Schmidt, and drummer Jacki Liebezeit – doing their inimitable, revolutionary thing over 4 long tracks. A cathartic, synapse firing masterpiece – and cheaper than hypnosis! Tracks include "Father Cannot Yell", "Mary, Mary, So Contrary", "Outside My Door", and the incredible side long "You Doo Right".

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSpanish Suite ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. New Copy ... $9.99 11.99
Great lost work from the legendary Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble – a composition that was recorded during the group's late 60s years on the Chicago scene – but which has never been released until now! The album stands beautifully alongside the group's self-titled classic and their tribute to Malcolm X – and like those amazing records, this one has a feel that's all its own – an exploration of Moorish elements in Spanish culture – which comes off as a Latin-inflected sound with African roots! The lineup here is similar to other Cohran classics – Donald Myrick on baritone sax, Charles James Williams on alto, Eugene Easton on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, Aaron Dodd on tuba, Pete Cosey on guitar, Henry Gibson on congas, and Louis Satterfield on bass – a mix of musicians that includes members with Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire listed in their resumes! Cohran's vision in the suite is wonderful – and the music has all the depth and righteous energy of his self-titled record, but a bit more Latin fire too – a beautiful blend that really makes us appreciate his genius even more than before, and which finally gives us another record of his to love after all these years.

Taj MahalBrothers ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 12.98
One of the better records that Taj Mahal cut during in the later 70s – probably because it was a soundtrack, and pushed the groove into some interesting places – with Taj's gruff vocals working over some Caribbean rhythms and modern blues, and more smoothed out moments! The latter moments actually creep near or even cross over the line into kind of a fusiony soul feel, with the tightly thumping electric bass and rolling sax, but Taj keeps the overall vibe as uncommonly diverse as his other records for Columbia. Tracks include "Malcolm's Song", "David & Angela", "Night Rider", "Brother's Doin Time", "Free The Brothers", "Love Theme In The Key Of D", and "Funky Butt". CD

Jimmy McGriffSomething To Listen To ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An obscure little album by Jimmy – a real lost session that kind of fell between his Blue Note and Solid State years. The set's got Jimmy grooving in 2 different modes – one a more traditional soul jazz organ style, similar to other 60s work, but almost tighter; the other a freer, almost more modal groove, and quite different than his funkier work of the same time. Our favorite cut on here is the stellar "Deb Sambo", which has a nice Braziliany groove, and a good dancefloor groove. Other cuts include "Malcolm's Blues" and "Something To Listen To".

Joe MorrisGraffiti In Two Parts ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 1985/2012. Used ... $11.99
A really noteworthy recording in the career of guitarist Joe Morris – not just because it's lain undiscovered for decades – but also because it features one of the few recorded performances of Lowell Davidson, who's also known for a famous 60s album on ESP! Davidson plays drums here, and the unusual "aluminum acoustic bass", not his usual piano – a shift that was made in order to find a way to resonate more strongly with Morris – who himself plays guitar and banjouke – in a quartet that also features Malcolm Goldstein on violin and Butch Morris on cornet! The work is almost more spacious than some of Morris' other recordings – especially those of the 90s onwards – partly because there's a lot of "room" in the recording, almost that loft jazz style that you'd hear on improv records of the 70s – really perfect for the odd array of percussion instruments that Davidson brings into his performance. The core of the record features "Graffitti (parts 1 & 2)" – plus the very short "Tag". CD

Ed PiskorHip Hop Family Tree Monthly #5 ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $2.99 3.99
The comic series that tells the tale of the early days of hip hop – but presents the story in the style of a Marvel Comics tabloid from the 70s! Ed Piskor's approach to the material is really unique – and he extrapolates historical details into an extended narrative of the scenes with colorful comic-style images. The monthly series anthologizes the stories in a way that's even truer to Piskor's comic book influences than the graphic novel collections. Amazing! Issue #5 covers the days of the "culture vultures" like Malcolm McClaren, and features Ice T, Rammellzee and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Iggy Pop, Jazzy Jay, Rock Steady Crew, Fab Five Freddy and more.

Connie Price & The KeystonesWildflowers (expanded edition) ... CD
Now Again, 2004. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A damn funky little album – and one of the best Stones Throw albums of the past 20 years! Connie Price & The Keystones are a modern group – but one who's steeped in all the older messed-up funky styles of their Stones Throw labelmates – even some of the offbeat psych and rock that the label has reissued from around the globe! There's a wonderfully tripped-out sound to their work – taking the core instrumentation of funky drums, choppy guitars, smoking keyboards, and soulful sax – and pushing it out with a Stark Reality-ish vibe that really makes the group stand out from the rest of the deep funk underground! The album's a brilliant debut that we'll be digging for years – and it also feature appearances by Malcolm Catto, and members of Funk Inc, Poets Of Rhythm, and The LA Carnival! Titles include "Sticks & Stones", "Sucker Punch", "The Buzzard", "Double Dutch", "Wild Flowers", "Tall Dry Grass", "Fuzz & Them", and "The Shadows Of Leaves". Expanded version features 9 more bonus tracks – including "Raga Doll", "Afro Som", "Hurricane Malcolm", "Hello I'm Inside Out", "Sticks Dub", and "Attack Of The Killer Penguins". CD

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".

Hal SingerBlues & News (with bonus track) ... CD
Futura (France), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
The other great Hal Singer album from his years on the French scene – and a record that we'd say is even better than his legendary Paris Soul Food set! Although Singer is often most associated with an older style of swing-based jazz, he's working here in a loose, free mode that's got plenty of 70s soulful touches – often funky at the best moments, but even more importantly openly rhythmic – with a progressively soulful style that's really outta site! The group features Art Taylor on drums, plus an assortment of European players led by Siegried Kessler – who plays some great piano and flute on the album, and also handled the arrangements. The album features Singer's wonderful tune "Malcolm X" – the kind of a track that we'd rank right up there with some of the most righteous soul jazz groovers of the time. Other highlights include the modal "Pour Stephanie", the jagged "Blues For Hal", and the groovy "It's My Thing". CD also includes the bonus track "Lina". CD

Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 19.98
These guys are plenty darn funky – and don't let the "surf" or "rock" on the cover make you think otherwise! The core quartet is super-tight, and work with this blistering barrage of funky drums, fierce Hammond, and lots of riffing guitar – which is then often augmented with lots of extra-cool guest elements – including vocals from Myron & E, drums from Malcolm Catto, guitar from JJ Whitefield, vocals from Shawn Lee, and vibes from Didier Selin – all underground funk giants who not only lend their talents to the set, but also give the Soul Surfers a plenty solid seal of approval in the process! There's plenty of classic funk elements in the mix, but the overall sound is pretty fresh and unique, too – and drawing from the array of extra guests helps throw lots of twists and turns into the group's great approach too. Titles include "Astra", "Straight Up", "TSS Groove", "Stop Fooling Around", "Time Is A Gun", "Raw", "Phoenix", and "You Can Run But You Can't Hide From My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

An analogue electronic classic – a huge crossover record from the early 70s, done with a pulsating, progressive sound that's a bit like the best early work by Tangerine Dream – but a fair bit tighter! Malcolm Cecil composed and performed the set – and it's a keyboard-heavy album with all electronic sounds – floating, flowing, and growing together in a nicely rough-edged studio mode. There's lots of dark machine sounds, bubbly pulsing bits, and a cold pre-Kraftwerk approach – and titles include "Cybernaut", "Jetsex", "Timewhys", "Riversong", and "Aurora". LP, Vinyl record album

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

VariousCalypso – Musical Poetry In The Caribbean 1955 to 1969 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
The deeper roots of calypso music in the Caribbean – a rich set of tracks that goes way past any preconceptions you might have about the genre! The music here goes way past the hits of Harry Belafonte – and really gets at the harder, more biting side of calypso – the sounds that came out most strongly when the music was heavy in Afro-styled percussion, and when the lyrics offered up biting commentary on political and social issues! There's a quality to this music that prefaces later Caribbean styles – even the social sensibility of reggae – and ttracks here have a raw production style that gives the music a heck of a lot of power – a bit like pre-Castro Havana recordings, with a nice sense of darkness and echo – although the vocals are usually upfront in the mix, which allows for more concentration on the lyrics. Leave it to the folks at Soul Jazz to help us discover a genre we never thought we'd dig this strongly – a great package that features the tracks "Elena" by Carlos Malcolm & His Afro Jamaican Rhythm, "Out De Fire" by Lord Flea & His Calypsonians, "The Bed Bug Song" by Brownie, "Man On The Moon" by Lord Cobra & Los Pana Afros, "Pussy Galore" by Young Growler, "Voodoo" by Cyril Diaz, "Love In The Cemetery" by Lord Kitchener, "Exchange No Robbery" by Mighty Dougla, and "People Will Talk" by King Fighter.

Ubiquity, 2007. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The first entry in a great series from Ubiquity – a vinyl-only collection contemporary funky tracks! The vibe here is hard and heavy almost in a Daptone mode at times, but with some more modern touches as well – that west coast approach to deep funk that often feels nicely free to break styles from convention! First up is The Lions with Noelle of Rebirth – doing a great version of the Lyn Collins' classic "Think" – but with a much more dub-heavy backing! Next up is "Jupiter Jam" from Hipster Wonkas – a cut that lays spacey electronics out over some very funky drums! The flipside features two versions of "Thundersounds" by Connie Price & The Keystones – with some great funky instrumentation by the group on the instrumental version, and hip hop lyrics from Percee P on the vocal take. Last up is "Free Mo" by Hudson Mohawke – one of the most messed-up tracks on the record, with lots of muddy, bassy bits and bursting percussion and electronics in the rhythms – a bit like some of the wildest Malcolm Catto work for Mo Wax many years ago!

ZTT (UK), 1980s/1990s/2000s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
The genius of producer Trevor Horn – summed up nicely in one 2CD package! The set really offers a wide range of Horn's groundbreaking pop work over the years – from his early hits with The Buggles and Yes, through his ZTT glory days with Art Of Noise and Frankie Goes To Hollywood, into a realm of fabulous 80s and 90s production and remix efforts with artists that include Grace Jones, Seal, ABC, and others. And yes, Horn's talents are sometimes on the heavier end of the spectrum, but you can't deny his impact on pop in the 80s and 90s – and hearing the 30 tracks on this set, we're reminded of how much we've appreciated his work over the years! Titles include "Look Of Love" and "Poison Arrow" by ABC, "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" by Yes, "Two Tribes (Hibakusha mix)" and "Relax" by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, "Video Killed The Radio Star" and "Living In The Plastic Age" by The Buggles, "Belfast Child" and "Mandela Day" by Simple Minds, "Buffalo Gals (scratch mix)" by Malcolm McLaren, "Cry" by Godley & Creme, "Angel At My Table" by The Frames, "Crazy" by Seal, "Give Me Back My Heart" by Dollar, and "Beatbox (diversion)" and "Moments In Love (beaten)" by Art Of Noise.

A seminal 70s session from British modernist John Surman – a record that exposed him to a much wider audience than the one he'd been getting in the avant jazz underground, and a record that's strongly build upon Surman's amazing ability to improvise in long, spiraling lines! The record features 4 long tracks played by a group that also includes Terje Rypdal, John Taylor, Malcolm Griffiths, and John Marshall – all playing loosely and sparely alongside Surman – in a way that's never too overindulgent or domineering. Titles include "Norwegian Soul – Septimus", "Hinc Illae Lacrimae – For Us All", and "Iron Man". CD
