Malcolm ArnoldNine Hours To Rama/The Lion ... CD
Artemis (UK), 1962/1963. Used ... $9.99
Two compelling 60s soundtracks from British composer Malcolm Arnold! The set begins with Arnold's great music to the film Nine Hours To Rama – a thriller about Ghandi's assassination, set to musical themes that mix 60s dramatic scoring with some elements of Indian music! Arnold's score is nicely serious in parts, but also has some more driving, percussive sections too – bits of tabla or other percussion that give the music some Eastern flavors – and some vocal passages as well. Titles include "Natu Tells Rani Of His Oath", "Das Warns Ghandi", "Train Coming Into Delhi", "Parade Ground", "Indian Concert", and "Malabar Hill". Arnold's score to The Lion is also set in colonial territory – a meeting of Malcolm's more traditional scoring with the African setting of the film! There's not as many African touches in the music as you might expect – as the orchestrations are mostly full and dramatic – but there's definitely a few attempts at more exotic moments, especially in some of the percussion used. The music represented here by the tracks from the UK 7" EP – a total of 6 numbers that include "King Dance Of Happiness", "Tina At Night", "Opening Title Music", and "Drum Dance". CD

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

A collection of recordings cut by McLaren between the years 1982 and 1984 – none of which made it to record in the first place, but which are being issued here hot on the heels of his successful opera project. The best value of the set is that it's got some material from the sessions around the "Buffalo Gals" hit – which isn't on here in the original form, but which does appear in very chopped up versions. There's some real dreck on here, but the better numbers have some competent electro grooving – and tracks include "Duck Rock Cheer", "Buffalo Love", "Supresto", and "Duck Rockers/Promises".

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

Archie SheppPoem For Malcolm ... LP
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
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

✨✧ Gaslamp KillerInstrumentalepathy (2 X 10") ... LP
Cuss, 2016. New Copy 2 X 10" Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Marc MacGeneration X ... LP
Omniverse (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's not "generation X", as in the disaffected American youth of the 90s – but instead an earlier era of culture that was strongly inspired by Malcolm X and other figures of the Civil Rights generation – all paid tribute here by Marc Mac with a wonderful set of beats, keyboards, and other electric elements! The album follows in the tradition of Marc's Right To Be Civil project – and, like that one, features his own music mixed with snippets from speeches and newscasts – but unlike the previous records, there's more of a British vibe here – as the samples deal with moments of unrest in early 80s Thatcher London – greatly abstracted by Marc's presentation. Titles include "Brixton Yoots", "Your Birth Place", "Summer Of 81", "New Cross Ghost", "Streets On Fire", "Black Experience", "Sus It Out", and "A Sad City". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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

IncognitoClassic Album Series (Who Needs Love/Adventures In Black Sunshine/Eleven/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 2002/2004/2005. Used 3CD ... $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

Sackville/Delmark, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Really wonderful work from Don Pullen – solo material, and some of his most soulful sides of the 70s – done in this long-flowing style that's completely sublime! Pullen's really at his best in this format – working in a way that's very free, but never overindulgent or overexpressive in the wrong way – a kind of magical connection between his soul and the piano, with results that are still among some of the greatest in the genre. All tracks are long, and very beautiful – and titles include "Richard's Tune", "Big Alice", "Song Played Backwards", and "Suite (Sweet) Malcolm". Features two unissued bonus tracks – "Kadji" and an alternate of "Big Alice". CD

Gruff RhysSet Fire To The Stars ... CD
Twisted Nerve (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $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". CD

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".

New music from the amazing Ronald Snijders – a Dutch flute player who made some incredibly funky records in the 70s – and really recreates that vibe here! Back in the day, Snijders was almost like the European version of Bobbi Humphrey – and worked in a similar sort of flow to her excellent albums on Blue Note – and here, Ronald's in exactly the same groove – as if the years haven't passed at all, as he slides his instrument in alongside help from a wonderful array of other guests – including Dwight Trible and Ed Motta on vocals, Orlando Julius on tenor, Avishai Cohen on trumpet, Malcolm Catto on drums, and even members of the group Azymuth! The whole thing's wonderful – righteous and spiritual, yet funky too – with titles that include "Lenox", "Funky Flute", "Mali Funk", "Kasekojazz", "Easy Man", "Busy Street", and "Madiba".

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

Vanishing TwinChoose Your Own Adventure ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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". CD

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".

Hannah Williams & The AffirmationsLate Nights & Heartbreak ... CD
Record Kicks (Italy), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
It's hard to imagine Hannah Williams having any heartbreak with a voice this great – the kind of all-out soul style that grabs you right away with its power, and never lets you go! The set's the second from Hannah and her group, and it's got even more bite than the first – produced with a great ear for the grittier currents in the grooves, thanks to studio work by Malcolm Catto – who seems to pick up the drums and darkness, which allows Williams to really shine her light over the top of the proceedings! The Affirmations are a funky combo, but one who really know how to mix up their groove, too – and titles include "7am To Seville", "Still In My Head", "Tame In The Water", "Dazed & Confused", "Ain't Enough", "Woman Got Soul", "Fighting Your Shadow", and "Callin Me Back". CD
Also available Late Nights & Heartbreak ... LP 16.99
