John Robinson Pierce/Max MathewsMusic From Mathematics – Played By IBM 7090 Computer & Digital To Sound Transducer ... LP
Decca, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Really wonderful sounds from an early IBM computer – and a set that's quite different from both the academic and popular electronic albums of the 60s! You can really hear the programming at work here – the careful choices as to which sounds come out when, in a sequence that's more prescribed than played – which gives the whole thing an even spookier feel – as if there were no need for humans at all! As you might expect from the time, there's electronic renditions of "classics" like "Frere Jacques", "Joy To The World" and "Bicycle Built For Two", and then a bunch of newer compositions, primarily by scientists at the Bell Telephone Labs. 18 tracks in all, also includes "Variations On Timbre & Attack", "Theme & Variations" and "Noise Study". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz ... LP
Impulse, 1960. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns handled the arrangements, and given that the record was issued by ABC a few years before they brought Ray into a country mode, it's interesting to think what might have happened had his career continued this way. There's only a small number of vocal tracks on the record, and most of the rest feature Ray at the organ, grooving away very nicely! Titles include "One Mint Julep", "Moanin", "I've Got News For You", "Mister C", and "Stompin Room Only". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz (2CD expanded version – includes My Kind Of Jazz vols 1 to 3) ... CD
Impulse/Concord, 1961/Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
An amazing look at the jazz side of Ray Charles – with 4 full albums on one 2CD set! The core featured album is Genius + Soul = Jazz – a wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles, and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you can't contest the fact that this one's a classic treat, and a legendary attempt to class up Ray's bluesy style for the masses. Quincy Jones and Ralph Burns handled the arrangements, and given that the record was issued by ABC a few years before they brought Ray into a country mode, it's interesting to think what might have happened had his career continued this way. There's only a small number of vocal tracks on the record, and most of the rest feature Ray at the organ, grooving away very nicely! Titles include "One Mint Julep", "Moanin", "I've Got News For You", "Mister C", and "Stompin Room Only". But even more importantly, the album also brings together the killer early 70s albums My Kind Of Jazz, volumes one through three – later instrumental records that really show Ray taking off from the spirit of the original Impulse sessions. These sides were recorded for Ray's Tangerine label, and all have a pretty darn hip feel – a mix of soul jazz modes that we like even more than most of Charles' vocal material! Titles include "Booty Butt", "Our Suite", "Going Home", "Kids Are Pretty People", "This Here", "Zig Zag", "Bluesett", "Sidewinder", "Pas Se O Ne Blues", "Sister Sadie", "3/4 Of The Time", and "Project S". Also features the bonus track "Misty" – CD

✨✧ Lord KelvinDances In The Smoke ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the more dynamic groups to record recently for Norway's Jazzland label – a cool trio who mix trombone, drums, and saxes into a really unique blend fo their own! The presence of one instrument in a trio with drums and bass might be common, but having both horns and percussion together really is a new approach – one that sometimes has all three instruments coming together in rhythmic modes, and other times has them all breaking away with a great sense of freedom! The trombone, handled by Erik Johannessen, is especially strong – very bold and loud, with a really bottom-up sort of sensibility – and sax work is by Eirik Hegdal and drums are by Gard Nilssen – and all players do a bit of hand clapping as well. Titles include "Energy Is Conserved", "Lord Kelvin Dances In The Smoke", "Thermodynamics", "Electrostatic Voltmeter", "Mathematics Is The Only Good Metaphysics", and "Kelvin Meets Girl". CD
