✨✧ Alan LightLet's Go Crazy – Prince & The Making Of Purple Rain (hardcover) ... Book
Atria, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 26.00
The power of Purple Rain in the 80s has sometimes been dimmed by the passage of years – but author Alan Light brings back the spotlight to Prince's amazing achievement – and documents both the creation of the classic film and accompanying album, and its role not only in rising Price to the top of the pop heap at the time – but also in breaking down some wider boundaries in 80s American culture. Light's spent time at Rolling Stone and Vibe, and from that perspective he really gets at the way that Purple Rain drew in so many folks who'd never think to buy a soul record at all – nor follow an African-American artist, other than Jimi Hendrix. Book is hardcover, 298 pages. Book

Charles Lloyd & Jason MoranHagar's Song ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2013. Used ... $8.99
Beautiful duets between this richly creative pair – a stripped-down set that really showcases the warmth and intimacy of Charles Lloyd's reed styles in recent years – and one that also has Jason Moran warming up a bit more than usual too! Lloyd plays tenor and alto, both with a very rich tone – plus bass and alto flutes – and although Moran mostly plays piano, he also handles a bit of tambourine – maybe in a way that underscores the rhythmic elements that Jason brings to his work on a few tracks. The centerpiece of the album is the "Hagar Suite" – which has some of the evocative, exotic modes of other Lloyd recordings – and other titles include "God Only Knows", "Pretty Girl", "Mood Indigo", "Bess You Is My Woman Now", and "Pictogram".

Lord Newborn & The Magic SkullsLord Newborn & The Magic Skulls ... CD
Ubiquity, 2009. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
Massively messed-up grooves – and a rare one-off collaboration between Money Mark, Shawn Lee, and Tommy Guerrero – all artists we've come to love for their own funky music over the years! The sound here is as wild as you'd expect from the cover – a really trippy approach to funk – spun out with the same heavy grooves you'd get on some of Lee's funk sets for Ubiquity, mixed with the offbeat production modes that Money Mark brought to his early Mo Wax recordings! There's a definite dose of psych on most tracks – showing the increasing influence from this end of the spectrum on 21st Century beatheads – and the fuzzier edges make for a nice change amidst Lee's usually cleaner grooves. Some vocals appear on the album, but often buried down deeply in the instrumental mix – leaving most of the album's charm to come from fuzzy guitar, trippy keyboards, and heavy beats! Titles include "Dime Bag Conspiracy", "Rainy Day Dog", "Astro Blue", "Disco Loco", "Ringa Ding Ding Ding", "LIVE", "Revenge Of The Fillet O Fish", and "Crazy Apartment". CD

✨✧ Magma1001 Centigrades (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Jazz Village (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
A legendary prog jam from Magma – one of the group's first records, and a set that shows that the French scene had every bit as much to offer as the German one at the time! There's passages here that recall the heady free jazz world of Paris in 1969 – mixed with other more focused, powerful rhythms that mark that group strongly as a rock act – especially through the non-stop energy of drummer Christian Vander – who also provides some of the vocals as well! The core group plays additional percussion, bass, and Fender Rhodes – and are augmented by additional tenor, flute, trumpet, and bass clarinet. Titles include "Riah Sahiltaahk", "Iss Lansei Doia", and "Ki Iahl O Liahk". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy, high-quality vinyl – with bonus insert and download!)

Shelly ManneProper Time ... LP
Contemporary, 1960. Very Good+ ... $34.99
One of the rarest albums from Shelly Manne – and one of the best, too! The set's a soundtrack for an obscure film – and it features Shelly really breaking from the norm a bit – stretching out with his combo to reach towards some really evocative sounds! The group's a sextet, with edges as sharp as his combo on the Blackhawk date – players that include Joe Gordon on trumpet, Richie Kamuca on tenor, Victor Feldman on vibes, Russ Freeman on piano, and Monty Budwig on bass – all coming together with Shelly's drums, which really get some great space to take off at solo moments too. The scoring is great – understated and relaxed, with some shorter tunes that have the feel of a hip French jazz soundtrack of the late 50s, mixed with longer numbers that are even better. Titles include "Happy Pool", "Blue Stutter", "Drum Solo", "Warm Water", "Exotic Moods", "Panic", and "Doreen's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove yellow label mono pressing. Cover is nice overall, but has a small mark from a sticker in one corner, and a small bit of splitting on top seam.)

Martha & The VandellasDance Party ... LP
Gordy, 1964. Very Good ... $29.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – but which also offers a lot more than you might expect – way more than just a few cash-in dancefloor tunes! True, the whole thing's pretty lively – and titles include the group's seminal version of "Dancing In The Street" – still the only version you'll really ever need, despite years and years of countless covers that always fall short of the mark. But the set's also got a wonderful range that really displays the lead power of Martha Reeves – hewn tightly to the supporting Vandellas backups – and filled with a rich sense of feeling on titles that include the classic "Nowhere To Run", plus other Motown goodies like "Hitch Hike", "Mickey's Monkey", and "The Jerk". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Martin & His OrchestraWitchcraft ... LP
Jubilee, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Well, the cover's got a wonderful image of a sexy witch holding a snake and skull above a cauldron – but the music's pretty mellow, in kind of a lush orchestral instrumental sort of way. There's some few nice touches, and occasional bits of spookiness – but the main theme is carried out in the magic-titled songs, like "The Witch", "It's Magic", "Spellbound", "That Old Black Magic", "Make Believe", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes". Still, that cover's pretty nice! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam, center split on the bottom seam, and a small mark from sticker removal.)

Donny McCaslinPerpetual Motion ... CD
Greenleaf, 2011. Used ... $7.99
A sharp set led by tenor sax player Donny McCaslin on the always worthwhile Greenleaf label – and really brilliant showcase for the incredibly talented leader and an exceptional group of players. The title track is a monster, a piece with enormous space for McClaslin to doing his thing muscularly, but paced well enough to leave plenty of room for more subtle interplay. The players include Adam Benjamin and Uri Caine on Fender Rhodes and piano (the Rhodes sounds are terrific throughout), Tim Lefebvre on bass, Antonio Sanchez and Mark Guiliana on drums, and David Binney on alto and electronics. Includes the excellent 12+ minute title track plus "Five Hands Down", "Firefly", "Energy Generation", "Impossible Machine", "For Someone", "LZCM", "Memphis Redux", "For Someone" and more. CD

Hal McKusickHal McKusick Quintet Featuring Art Farmer ... LP
Coral, 1957. Very Good ... $24.99
Hal McKusick is one of the most frequently overlooked reed players of the 50's – and until this great reissue of his rare Decca recordings came out a few years ago, his work was mostly only known to collectors of rare stuff who had the money to check him out. Fortunately, this lower-priced reissue set brings together some of McKusick's best sides for Decca (which were also probably his best sides ever), and the material is a haunting mix of bebop with a tighter approach to arrangements – sort of in the style of some of Benny Golson's work from the same time. Titles include "Ponsu", "For Art's Sake", "Criss Cross", "Down & Dirty", and "Old Devil Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Vinyl is nice and clean. Cover has one small mark from an old sticker.)

Hailu Mergia & The WaliasTche Belew ... LP
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1977. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An amazing organ player from the Ethiopian scene – one whose work here easily rivals that of Mulatu and some of the best artists on the Ethiopiques series! Hailu Mergi has plenty of jazz in his approach – not just on his own keyboard lines, but also in the way he lets the group members open up on tenor, trumpet, flute, and piano with great sounds of their own – a groove that's especially nice when Mulatu comes into the mix with some work on vibes as well! Yet the whole record also has the best exotic overtones of other Ethiopian grooves you'll know from the time – an eerie, almost otherworldly sort of sound – as the organ drifts over the top with riffs that feel like they're lifted from Terry Riley, yet turned much more towards a groove-heavy sound. The whole thing's wonderful – easily the best release on this label so far – and titles include "Woghenei", "Yemiasleks Fikir", "Lomi Tera Tera", "Musicawi Silt", "Birtukane", "Eti Gual Blenai", and "Tche Belew". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert. Vinyl has a mark that clicks a bit on the first track, otherwise NM-.)

✨✧ Barry MilesCall Me Burroughs – A Life (hardcover) ... Book
Twelve, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 32.00
An insanely rich documentary of the legendary William S Burroughs – an author who's possibly known more for his role in the cultural underground of the 60s and 70s, than for his equally-important writings! Barry Miles does a great job of tying both those worlds together – and gets past the easy cliches and overblown legends of Burroughs, and really looks at the man as a hell of a creative talent – as much a philosopher as an author, with an undeniable impact on the intellectual life of the 20th Century, on so many different fronts! The book is over 700 pages, very deeply written – with as much literary criticism as biography – and the whole thing was clearly a labor of love for Miles, who supports the book with endless pages of notes. 718 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

Michael Moore TrioBering ... CD
Ramboy (Netherlands), 1999. Used ... $11.99
Beautiful trio material, recorded by a group led by clarinetist Michael Moore, and featuring Fred Hersch on piano and Mark Helias on bass. Moore is a wealth of influences – and on this one, he draws from influences that encompass Pixinguinha, Jobim, Mikis Thedorakis, and Wayne Shorter. He's one of the best straight players on the instrument, and the whole session has a wonderfully haunting sound that is unlike any recent clarinet jazz session we can think of. Titles include "Mundo Sem Fim", "Nocchi", "The Peacocks", "Inutil Paisagem", "Ingenuo", and "Albatross". CD

MorphineCure For Pain ... CD
Ryko, 1993. Used ... $3.99
The second and best album by Morphine – rightly remembered as a much needed antidote to the grunge and mainstream alternative rock that was taking over pop culture at the time – and an enduring, ageless classic that would stand out in any era! Morphine's previous album was nearly as great, but Cure For Pain is nearly perfect. Mark Sandman's 2-string slide bass sound is indeed perfectly paired with his own vocals, the sax and drums doing the rest of the work instrumentally – there was only a couple years in which they'd really surprise us sonically with this setup, but what an amazing couple of years – and albums! Includes "Dawna", "Buena", "I'm Free Now", "All Wrong", "Candy", In Spite Of Me", "Thursday", "Cure For Pain", "Sheila", "Let's Take A Trip Together". CD
