✨✧ Les Yper SoundExplorations In Drum & Sax (clear vinyl – with download) ... LP
Figure & Ground, 2016. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Intergalactic instrumentals from Les Yper Sound – and not the late French 60s psychedelia project of Michel Colombier & Pierre Henry– this one features drummer Miles Artntzen & sax player Jas Walton, with Money Mark & Sinkane! The group has a really unique vibe, rooted strongly the intuitive interplay between drumme rArntzen and Walton – and tripped out from there and in some really cool ways, with far-reaching global funk influences. Plenty of elements reminsicent of Latin, African and Eastern funk, but paired with freewheeling melodic bits and interesting elements galore. Titles include "Step Away", "Woodland", "Paella Bahia", "Ambiguity", "Potato Brain", "Eastern Parkway", "Coffee Etude", "Return To", "RSVP", "Dark Yoga", "Sleep Over" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – on clear vinyl and with download!)

Love Live Life + OneLove Will Make A Better You ... LP
King (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
A wild mix of free jazz and fuzzy rock – played by a groundbreaking Japanese group who mix flute and saxes with heavy Hammond and plenty of guitar! The album begins with the side-long "Question Mark" – a tune that breaches a really metaphysical question at the start, then really trips out with some free-jamming instrumentation. Other numbers are a bit more straight – and almost show a soul jazz influence at times – and the accented English language vocals almost make the set come off like some of those European post-beat sides that were a jamming mix of funk, soul, and rock. Titles include "Shadows Of The Mind", "Runnin Free", "Love Will Make A Better You", and "Facts About It All". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK reissue on Phoenix.)

Low LeafPalm Psalms – A Light To Resolve All Darkness ... LP
Creator DIY, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
Spiritual soulfulness from Low Leaf – a debut release on her own CreatorDIY label – really wonderful stuff with a really soaring vibe overall! Low Leaf herself plays harp, keys, synth, guitar, cello, sings and lays down the beats – with guests including similarly adventurous spirits Kadjha Bonet, Mark De Clive-Lowe and others, but Low Leaf's unique vision guides all. "Pace Foreva", "Psychlez", "Dreaming Awake", "Pupil Of The Universe", "It Is Within", "Hoble Coda", "Sun Psalm", "Inlight", "Angel Wash" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneShelly Manne & His Men Play Checkmate ... LP
Contemporary, 1961. Very Good ... $16.99
After having a bit of a minor hit with a crime jazz album dedicated to the music of Peter Gunn, Shelly and combo turn towards a less-remembered TV cop show for more music in a similar vein. Checkmate was a short-lived show from the early 60s, but it had a great score by John Williams – one that's a perfect platform for Shelly's group, a quintet that features Richie Kamuca on tenor and Conte Candoli on trumpet. Kamuca's horn is always well suited to odd little numbers like these, and Shelly opens a few of the tracks up past the usual three minute soundtrack crime jazz format – taking tunes like "Checkmate", "Cyanide Touch", "The King Swings", and "The Isolated Pawn" past the 5 minute mark for additional solo flourishes.

Donny McCaslinBeyond Now ... CD
Motema, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Reedman Donny McCaslin's been making records for many years now – but he also seems to have gotten a new sort of inspiration from his work with David Bowie on his final recording – at a level that really seems to influence his sound here! The record's still very much a jazz session – but it's also got rhythms, flourishes, and other elements that Donny wouldn't have used a few short years ago – not just a bit of keyboards, which seem used to extrapolate the Bowie/Eno themes from Berlin – but also a more angular approach to his solos, which seems to create an inherent set of rhythm in the way he blows his tenor and flute. The album's dedicated to Bowie, but is hardly any sort of Bowie tribute or cover album – although the group does do a wonderful reading of "Warszawa", which comes out great as an instrumental. Other players include Jason Lindner on keyboards, Tim Lefebvre on electric bass, and Mark Guiliana on drums – and Jeff Taylor sings briefly on "A Small Plot Of Land". All other titles are instrumentals – and include "Remain", "Glory", "Faceplant", "Bright Abyss", "Beyond Now", and "Coelacanth 1". CD

Joe McPhee/Ken Vandermark/Kent KesslerMeeting In Chicago ... CD
Okka Disk, 1998. Used ... $11.99
The multi-instrumentalist Joe McPhee's legendary early work was the stuff that got the Hat Hut label started on its current mission of documenting the work of the world's great avant garde and free jazz players, and now the great Okka Disk label makes their mark in a similar vein with a set of recordings by McPhee playing in various solo, duo, and trio combinations with Chicago players Ken Vandermark and Kent Kessler. Vandermark is a longtime fan of McPhee, and the two of them play together wonderfully on the CD. McPhee's sensitivity brings out a whole new side of both players, and the set's a brilliant document of a highly productive studio date recorded during his first appearance in Chicago. CD

✨✧ Amedeo Minghi/Piero Montanari/Roberto ConradoClimax (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Octopus/Song Cycle (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A fantastic set from the legendary Italian Octopus sound library – one of those tiny little record labels from the 70s that didn't care about any sort of labels for the music it released! And yet, if we had to label this one, we'd mark it with a super-big "Groovy" in bold letters – as the set's awash in those special sort of Italian funk touches that only could come from its sound library scene – the place where the hippest jazz and soundtrack talents met, and made music like this – free from commercial concerns! Some numbers have totally great keyboard or guitar lines, others have cool wordless vocals – and if we had to compare this set to anything, it might be the music of I Marc 4 – although there's a more freewheeling, trippy feel to the whole thing too. Titles include "Glaze", "Frog In Love", "Sampler", "Quoin", "Sliding Scale", "Glitter", "Ready Money", and "Pool". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles MingusPre Bird ... CD
Mercury, 1960. Used ... $7.99
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of musical ideas that run from Charles' own highly political expressions of the Civil Rights era to some of his landmark explorations of Duke Ellington! As always, the individual players in the group are given a strong voice in the proceedings – and the record bristles with energy from solos by Ted Curson, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Yusef Lateef, and a young Joe Farrell – as well as vocal performances by Lorraine Cousins, who sings on the classic "Weird Nightmare" and the haunting "Eclipse". A tremendous record throughout – filled with life, imagination, and boundless creativity – with titles that include "Mingus Fingus no. 2", "Weird Nightmare", "Eclipse", "Bemoanable Lady", "Half Mast Inhibition", and "Prayer for Passive Resistance".

Blue Mitchell & Sonny RedBaltimore 1966 ... CD
Uptown, 1966. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
Unreleased material from a really wonderful group – one that features killer alto work from the great Sonny Red – working here in the same kind of small group setting he brought to late 60s performances with Donald Byrd! Yet this time around, the trumpeter is Blue Mitchell – who blows with a lot more bite than on some of his records of the time – really taking his time to craft out long solos on the very extended tracks from this live performance – reminding us that he can be a hell of a creative soloist when not caught up in some of the larger arrangements that would mark some points of his career! Red is wonderful too – with that raspy tone that often makes his alto feel more like a tenor – and the group's also got killer piano work from John Hicks – just starting out here, and full of fire. The rest of the quintet features Joe Chambers on drums and Gene Taylor on bass – and the material has never been issued, and includes the tracks "Fungi Mama", "A Portrait Of Jenny", "Blue Spring Variation", "If I Should Lose You", and "All Members".

✨✧ Tyler MitchellLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2013. Used ... $7.99
An ultra-hip set from bassist Tyler Mitchell – a player who doesn't often record as a leader, but really makes his mark with this live performance from Smalls! Mitchell's group here is a great one – a really cohesive quintet with Josh Evans on trumpet, Abraham Burton on tenor, Spike Wilner on piano, and Eric McPherson on drums – all players who come together on the album's original compositions, and who have the inventiveness to keep things spontaneous and flowing on the very long tracks – all tunes that go well past a dozen or more minutes in length. Wilner's especially nice – bold, yet sensitive – and a great bridge between the leader and hornmen. Titles include "A Time Called Now", "La Tendresse", "Caton", "Taking It With Me", and "Taj's Theme". CD

Willie MitchellSoul Serenade – The Best Of Willie Mitchell ... CD
Hi Records/Right Stuff, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $6.99
Although he's probably best remembered these days as the genius producer behind most of the great Memphis soul records on the Hi Records label, Willie Mitchell was also quite a big soul star in his day. He played lead trumpet on a huge amount of instrumental singles and LPs issued under his own name – records that came out on Hi in the years before and during his classic work with Al Green and Ann Peebles. This "best of" set features 20 of Willie's best moments – including some big singles, and some other more obscure numbers from LPs. Titles include "20 75", "The Crawl", "Percolatin", "Strawberry Soul", "My Babe", "Young People", "Poppin", "Up Hard", "Bum Daddy", and "Bad Eye". CD

Torolf MolgaardLone Rider (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artist/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
Some of the coolest use of trombone in jazz we've ever heard – a set that features multiple musicians on the instrument, but in ways that are different than any similar projects from the 50s or 60s! The style here is very loose and open, and the record steps along beautifully with electric touches in the rhythm section – including Fender Rhodes from Ole Koch Hansen and guitar from Ole Molin – both players who create this warm, lyrical flow to the proceedings – which really seems to inspire the trombones. Leader Tolof Molgaard is in the frontline and handles all solos – alongside trombonists Axel Windfeld, Erling Kroner, and Ole Kurt Jensen – who come together in a way that's never bombastic or overwhelming, and which really preserves the warmth of the tunes. Titles include a great reading of Sahib Shihab's "Safari" – plus "A Bossa For You", "Lone Rider", "Autumn", "Sleepy", and "Beat It". LP, Vinyl record album

Debby MooreMy Kind Of Blues ... LP
Top Rank, 1959. Very Good ... $29.99
A cool little record from vocalist Debby Moore – an artist who whistles as well as she sings, and often manages to mix both talents strongly in the space of a single track! The album's got a slightly laidback, slightly bluesy feel – still jazz at the core, but in a way that has Debby hitting plenty of late nite, blue-tinged modes – a bit similar to Ernestine Anderson or Lorez Alexandria at the same points in their careers, and handled with similar small combo backing. Players include Harry Edison on trumpet – who sweetens up the sound nicely – plus Jimmy Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Titles include "How Come You Do Me Like You Do", "My Baby Loves Me True", "Five Months Two Weeks Two Days", "Come On Home To Me", "Sent For You Yesterday", "Nothin But Trouble On My Mind", and "No Love No Nothin". CD features the bonus track "Get A Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Come On Home To Me". Cover is in nice shape.)

Ennio MorriconeLa Trappola Scatta A Beirut (10 inch pressing) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Great work from Ennio Morricone, and pretty unusual too – penned for a hip spy thriller from the late 60s – done with some bold, jazzy inflections on the instrumentation – and styles that echo American and British thrillers of a similar nature! There's some nicely jazzy elements at times – great use of flute and saxophone over more complicated backings, which have these shimmering qualities that really offset the solo instruments nicely – and although there's a bit less of the Morricone sense of space in the overall composition, there's still some key darker touches that are definitely the mark of the maestro. Titles include "Relax Per Un Agente Segreto", "Inseguimento", "Attesa E Fuga", "Agente 505 Missione Compiuta", and "Langiudamente". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful 10" pressing!)
