✨✧ 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

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleMalcolm X Memorial (A Tribute In Music) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. Used ... $5.99
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

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

Red Baron, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly nice set of straight soul jazz tracks from David Murray – recorded as a tribute to Malcom X, and a record that we initially avoided, due to the fact that it's release coincided with the Malcolm X cash-in frenzy that surrounded the release of Spike Lee's bio-pic. Despite a range of titles that reference Malcolm, most of the set's just freewheeling soul bop – played by Murray in a group that includes Ravi Coltrane on tenor, Bobby Bradford on cornet, John Hicks on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The album includes a strong Hicks original called "Hicks Time", plus "Harlemite", "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz", and "Icarus", all by Murray. CD

Gaslamp KillerInstrumentalepathy (2 X 10 inch LP – with download) ... LP
Cuss, 2016. New Copy 2 X 10" Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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 WorkshopSoundhouse (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
BBC/Silva Screen, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 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".

✨✧ Bow Wow WowYour Box Set Pet – The Complete Recordings 1980 to 1984 (See Jungle/When The Going Gets Tough/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The complete recordings of a group departed all too soon – the wonderfully catchy, completely groovy Bow Wow Wow – a great breath of fresh air at the start of the 80s! The group were a new project of Malcolm McLaren after the Sex Pistols – but they clearly had plenty going for them on their own, and sounded great even after their acrimonious break with McLaren – thanks to a unique sound that was heavy on drums and percussion, laced with airy guitar, and topped with the fantastic vocals of the lovely Annabella – a voice on the scene that was every bit as unique as Siouxie Sioux or Debby Harry. The drums really drive the music, and give it a sound that's different than some of the group's UK contemporaries – and the songs really sound wonderful all these years later – maybe even more so away from the non-musical issues that sometimes got in the way of the group's success. 3CD set features the full albums See Jungle See Jungle Go Join Your Gang Yeah City All Over Go Ape Crazy and When The Going Gets Tough The Tough Get Going (they were never one for short titles) – and each record comes with bonus tracks, which, alongside the the third CD, makes for a total of 42 bonus tracks in all – along with a big booklet of notes.

Donald ByrdGetting Down To Business ... CD
Landmark, 1990. Used ... $3.99
Nothing fancy, but a great back to basics session from Byrd – very solidly played, with a tight group, in a style that recalls his best mid 60s work for Blue Note! Players include Kenny Garrett, Joe Henderson, Donald Brown, Peter Washington, and the great Al Foster on drums – and the strength of Garrett and Henderson makes for some excellent tracks that rank with Byrd's best work of his late career. Titles include "Around The Corner", "Theme For Malcolm", "Popmponio", "A Certain Attitude", and "The Onliest". CD

CanSoundtracks ... CD
Mute, 1970. Used ... $8.99
An early classic from Can – the first recordings with Damo Suzuki, and kind of the start of Can's more hypnotic sounds! Soundtracks found the group working for, you guessed it, film projects, but it's still pretty much a Can album rather than passages of more ambient score type music. Hypnotically repetitive rhythms and always excellent Can drums & percussion, with vocals by Damo, and the last couple of Can tracks with Malcolm Mooney. Titles include the epic "Mother Sky", "Deadlock", "Tango Whiskeyman", "Don't Turn The Lights On, Leave Me Alone", "Soul Desert" and "She Brings The Rain". CD

Tommy GuerreroLittle Bit Of Somethin ... LP
Mo Wax/Be With (UK), 2000. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 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".

HeliocentricsOut There ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2007. Used ... $6.99
The debut full length from Heliocentrics – the cosmic funk project from Malcolm Catto and a tasteful group of players – touching on funky drummer hip hop beatcraft, hazy psychedelia, leftfield jazz and global accented grooves! The Heliocentrics have backed DJ Shadow on occasion, and Catto has drummed in the service of Madlib's material in the past – but Out There does stand out, a modernist instrumental groove in world of its own! Catto is on drums and piano for the set – and the group is well stocked on drums and percussion throughout – plus heavy bass, some Eastern strings, modular synth, flute, clarinet, sax and vibes. It may be out there, but they found a funky atmosphere! Titles include "Distant Star", "Flight 583", "Once Upon A Time", "Beyond Repair", "Sirius B", "Untitled", "They Are Among Us – Part 1", "Zero Hour", "Joyride", "American Empire", "Before I Die", "Age Of The Sun", "They Are Among Us – Part 2", "Intermission", "Winder Song", "World Of Masks", "Falling To Earth" and more.

A great little record that's not quite jazz, not quite funk, but something really special in between – a short EP that only features four tracks, but one that manages to pack a heck of a punch overall! 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

✨✧ Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3CD set) ... CD
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".

VariousFab Gear – The British Beat Explosion & Its Aftershocks 1963 to 1967 (6CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 6CDs ... $52.99
A deep deep look at a side of the British 60s scene that didn't always make big waves here in the US – but one that had a huge influence on UK sounds for years to come! The mighty book-like package documents the rich stream of sounds that exploded during the beat group years – a moment that was partly graced by some of the names that we'd know here as the Brit Invasion, but which soon moved off into much more expansive sounds that include mod moments, freakbeat grooves, and a fair bit of tunes influenced by American jazz and soul! The 6CD set features a whopping 165 tracks in all, plus a huge booklet of notes – and a number of the tracks are pulled from the Pye Records catalog – one of the most important Brit labels of the period – but the set also includes lot of bits from elsewhere too. Includes work by The Rogers, Marmalade, The Baskervilles, The Web, The Mighty Atoms, Glenda Collins, The Mike Stuart Span, Bobbi Rio & The Revelles, Carl Wayne & The Vikings, The Mike Cotton Sound, Ray Singer, Marilyn Powell, Just Four Men, Twinkle, Tony Jackson, The Cops N Robbers, Major Rowley, Paddy Klaus & Gibson, David Bowie & The Lower Third, The Lancastrians, New Faces, The Limeys, Mick & Malcolm, Kind, Episode Six, and many others!

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A fantastic look at the righteous current of energy that swept through American music at the end of the 60s – that huge wave of knowledge and political inspiration that still stands as one of our favorite moments in jazz and soul! The Civil Rights generation had gotten some things accomplished, but not everything – and a new wave of action arose in various scenes of the underground – not just pushing the musical formats past anything that had happened before, but also doing so with a strong message of pride and empowerment! This collection surveys some of the best tracks of that moment – and also provides a great batch of historical notes to put the whole thing in context – done in collaboration with the book of the same name, but equally great as a soundtrack and document on its own. The package is overflowing with Dusty Groove classics – and titles include "Sweet Songs" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Surtal Ihklas" by Doug Carn, "Vibes From The Tribe" by Phil Ranelin, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Horace Tapscott & The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, "Sounds From The Bush" by The Mandingo Griot Society with Don Cherry, "Is It Too Late" by Duke Edwards & The Young Ones, "Strong Men" by David McKnight, "Black Narcissus" by Joe Henderson, "Malcolm X" by Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble, "Mother Of The Future" by Carlos Garnett, "Red Black & Green" by Roy Ayers, "African Rhythms" by Oneness Of Juju, and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron.

This set's a great entry in this well-priced, overstuffed series – full of lost mixes from those great days with an LP-sized single offered up plenty of room for extended versions, dancefloor mixes, and tricked-out takes on some of the bigger cuts of the time – a good deal of which are collected in this 30 track set! This volume's a bit more heavy on soul music than some of the others – and titles include "Can You Feel It" by The Jacksons, "The Slightest Touch (Pettibone touch rmx)" by Five Star, "Deep In Vogue (Banjie realness)" by Malcolm McLaren, "Lost In Emotion (FF rmx)" by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, "Let's Hear It For The Boy (ext)" by Deniece Williams, "Body Talk" by Imagination, "Inside Out (12" version)" by Odyssey, "Indestructible (ext version)" by Four Tops with Smokey Robinson, "Who's Zooming Who (dance mix)" by Aretha Franklin, "Seasons Change (12" mix)" by Expose, "Get Outta My Dreams Get Into My Car (ext version)" by Billy Ocean, "What Can Say To Make You (hateful club mix)" by Alexander O'Neal, "She Won't Talk To Me (12" ext)" by Luther Vandross, "Blame It On The Boogie (PWL mix)" by Big Fun, "Love Pains (Steve Hurley's rmx)" by Liza Minnelli, "Get On Your Feel (pop voc)" by Gloria Estefan, "This Is The Right Time (ext)" by Lisa Stansfield, and "Together Forever (lover's leap extended)" by Rick Astley.

One of the fantastically beautiful LPs that Nathan Davis made upon his return to the US. A masterful quartet side with Alan Dawson, Richard Davis, and Roland Hanna – and proof that Davis was one of the most amazing (and most underrated) reed players of his generation.

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Damn! Quantic really blows the roof off with this one – taking us even farther on a musical journey than ever before, and making us bow to his mighty talents in ways we never expected! The album's a really unique session recorded in Colombia, with help from an international batch of musicians and studio talents – a wicked extension of the Latin grooves that Quantic added to his funky mix a few years ago – but with far more sophistication and live instrumentation than he's ever used before! This album's not just a simple blend of salsa elements and funky grooves – and instead, it's a richly complicated tapestry of music – one that not only draws from Colombian sounds, but also some of the more sophisticated aspects of other Latin American scenes too – no surprise, given that performers here include Alfredo Linares on piano, Freddy Colorado on congas, Fernando Ovejo Silva on bass, Angel Hernandez on trumpet, and Arthur Verocai on arrangements. Mighty Malcolm Catto is on deck with some heavy drums – and most of the instrumentation here is acoustic, and richly varied throughout. Sublime, amazing, and a record that wins us over way more than we ever might have expected – and dammit, we already had a hell of a lot of respect for Will "Quantic" Holland! Titles include "Mas Pan"," Undelivered Letter", "Un Canto A Mi Tierra", "Mambo Los Quantic", "Arianita", "The Dreaming Mind (parts 1 & 2)", "I Just Feel In Love Again", "New Morning", "Albela", and "Linda Morena".

Very soulful work from singer Ismael Rivera – working here with some sharp arrangements by Javier Vazquez, in a groove that's totally great! As with other Vaya sessions of the time, there's a strong undercurrent of tradition in the rhythms – a return to Latin roots at the height of the 70s salsa years, in a way that gives the record a really timeless feel overall – right in keeping with Rivera's approach to the vocals. Players in the group include Carlos Malcolm on timbales and Chocolate Armenteros on trumpet – and titles include "El Nazarena", "Que Te Pasa A Ti", "Witinila", "Orgullosa", "Traigo De Todo", "El Niche", and "Satelite".

✨✧ Archie SheppFire Music ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – easily one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums, and certainly one of the pivotal points of 60s avant garde jazz! The album features Shepp leading a crack "new thing" line up that includes Ted Curson on trumpet, Marion Brown on alto, Joe Chambers on drums, Reggie Johnson on bass, and the lesser-known Joseph Orange on trombone – all playing in a beautifully poised manner, never too far out and free, but with all the dynamic energy of the best jazz changes of the 60s! There's a vibe here that's similar to some of the Blue Note "new thing" work by players like Grachan Moncur, Jackie McLean, and Tony Williams from the time – but there's a vision that's also wider and deeper, too, given the size of the group and the way they interact. Titles include "Hambone", "Los Olvidados", "Malcolm Malcolm–Semper Malcolm", and an insane cover of "Girl From Ipanema". You can't go wrong with this one – trust us! CD also features a bonus live version of "Hambone"! CD

✨✧ VariousCopasetic – The Mod Ska Sound – 56 Ska & Rock Steady Classics From The Original Mod Era ... CD
Trojan (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The term "copasetic" was first coined by Bill Bojangles Robinson in the 30s – but the word is a perfect one to describe the vibe here – an easygoing groove, served up in dozens of killer cuts from the early ska and rocksteady years of Trojan Records! Given the image of a British mod on the front, you can bet that these are the kind of tracks that played big on the London scene in the second half of the 60s – tunes that were not only serving the big wave of Jamaican immigrants on the English shores, but also having a huge impact on the nation's youth of the time too. But even without any sort of history behind the music, there's still plenty to love here – a huge amount of cuts that includes some Trojan classics and lots of other deeper tracks too – titles that include "Yeah Yeah" by The Riots, "Wrong Emboyo" by The Rulers, "University Goes Ska" by Don Drummond, "Storm Warning" by Lynn Taitt & The Boys, "Wise Man" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Nuclear Weapon" by Roland Alphonso, "Keep The Pressure On" by Winston & George, "Bonanaza Ska" by Carlos Malcolm & His Afro-Jamaican Rhythms, "Contact" by Roy Richards, "The Jerk" by Derrick Harriott, "Inez" by Lester Sterling & Tommy McCook, "Big Bamboo" by Lord Creator, and "The Higher The Monkey Climbs" by Justin Hinds & The Dominoes.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic look at the righteous current of energy that swept through American music at the end of the 60s – that huge wave of knowledge and political inspiration that still stands as one of our favorite moments in jazz and soul! The Civil Rights generation had gotten some things accomplished, but not everything – and a new wave of action arose in various scenes of the underground – not just pushing the musical formats past anything that had happened before, but also doing so with a strong message of pride and empowerment! This collection surveys some of the best tracks of that moment – and also provides a great batch of historical notes to put the whole thing in context – done in collaboration with the book of the same name, but equally great as a soundtrack and document on its own. The package is overflowing with Dusty Groove classics – and titles include "Sweet Songs" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Surtal Ihklas" by Doug Carn, "Vibes From The Tribe" by Phil Ranelin, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Horace Tapscott & The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, "Sounds From The Bush" by The Mandingo Griot Society with Don Cherry, "Is It Too Late" by Duke Edwards & The Young Ones, "Strong Men" by David McKnight, "Black Narcissus" by Joe Henderson, "Malcolm X" by Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble, "Mother Of The Future" by Carlos Garnett, "Red Black & Green" by Roy Ayers, "African Rhythms" by Oneness Of Juju, and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron.

✨✧ Michael Cosmic/Phill Musra GroupPeace In The World/Creator Spaces (with bonus download) ... LP
Cosmic/Now Again, 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

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!

✨✧ Reuben WilsonOn Broadway ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hammond hero Reuben Wilson's on Broadway – and he hits a massively soulful groove that's light years from the cliched sounds of the great white way! The set's one of the tightest cookers from Wilson's early years on Blue Note – and has a vibe that's a bit different than the rest, thanks to some compelling rhythmic elements that push things past a Lou Donaldson groove, and more into that chunky approach to organ jazz that Wilson would explore later on the Groove Merchant label. Most numbers have this back/forth groove that's really wonderful – almost a rocking energy that has Wilson laying in the pocket one minute, then bursting forth the next with some really tremendous work on the keys. Other group members are great too – and the quartet features tenorist Trevor Lawrence, guitarist Malcolm Riddick, and drummer Tommy Derrick – on tracks that include "Poincinana", "On Broadway", "Ronnie's Bonnie", "Ain't That Peculiar", and "Baby I Love You".

✨✧ Donald BrownSend One Your Love ... CD
Muse, 1992. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The core combo here is already great – with Charnett Moffett on bass and Louis Hayes on drums – but pianist Donald Brown adds some key members to the group on a host of other tracks, and really manages to make the record sparkle! The album's a great set in the relaxed, open style of soul jazz work recorded by Muse Records in the 90s – an approach that's a lot looser than some of the other big labels at the time, in ways that really let a player like Brown show off the full range of his talents – the sort of ideas he might have picked up from playing around so often at the time. Some tunes are laidback and easygoing, others more dynamically creative – and the whole album blends styles together with a nice degree of depth. Other players include Steve Wilson on alto, soprano sax, and flute, Tom Williams on flugelhorn, and Rudy Byrd on percussion – and Eric Walker stands in for Hayes on drums on a few tracks. Titles include "Blues For Harold", "Whisper Not", "The Sequel", "Girl Watching", "Theme For Malcolm", "Crazeology", "Send One Your Love", and "The Sweetest Sounds". CD

Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

The horns are even harder and heavier than before – honed through some touring around the globe, and brought into focus here beautifully – bristling with energy from the very first note. The set features guest appearances from Malcolm Catto, Tony Allen, Flea, and Damon Albarn – but the real strength of the record lies in the group's amazing horns and rhythms – on titles that include "War", "Gibbous", "Alyo", "Ballicki Bone", "Jupiter", "Marcus Garvey", "Party Started", "Sankofa", "Satin Sheets", "Hypnotic", and 2 versions of "Rabbit Hop".

BBC/Silva Screen, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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

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

Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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
