✨✧ John Robinson PierceMusic From Mathematics Vol 2 ... 7-inch
Decca/Cacophonic (UK), Early 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
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! John Robinson Pierce headed up a set of scientists at Bell Labs in the early 60s – which is where these sounds were created – and titles include "Five Against Seven", "Stochatta", "Variation In Timbre & Attack", "Melodie", and "Beat Cannon". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ray CharlesGenius + Soul = Jazz ... LP
Impulse, 1960. Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
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
(Orange & black label stereo pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ 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 ... $4.99
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

✨✧ BachWell-Tempered Clavier/Goldberg Variations – Rosalyn Turek (6CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2015. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
Some of our favorite interpretations of these key compositions from Bach – both treasures from the catalog of Deutsche Grammophon, and packaged here in a wonderfully complete set! The first four CDs feature Rosalyn Turek's sublime reading of The Well Tempered Clavier – done in 1952 and 1953 for DG, and at a level that's so precise, so meticulous, it still stands as one of the landmark recordings of the cycle of preludes and fugues. Turek really gets at the complex mathematics of Bach's music, while still bringing a strong sense of feeling to her performance – but without any of the liberties later players might take. The following two CDs feature a 1998 reading of Goldberg Variations – beautifully expressive, yet still as precise as Turek's famous earlier works by Bach. CD

✨✧ Mos DefBlack On Both Sides ... LP
Rawkus/Def Jam, 1999. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Mos Def's landmark late 90s solo debut – a rock solid classic that stands up today as one of the best hip hop albums of its decade – and for all the dizzying creative highs and lows of his career to follow, it stands strongly among his best work ever. His preceding duo work with Talib Kweli as Black Star set a pretty high bar creatively, and stunningly, Mos manages to clear it. It's all the more impressive given the stylistic diversity, ranging from bed rock boom bap, to leftfield funk, to Bad Brains-inspired punk. Incredible stuff. Tracks include "Ms Fat Booty", "Hip Hop", "Know That" featuring Talib Kweli, "Mr Ni**a" featuring Q-Tip, "Mathematics", "Brooklyn", "Umi Says", "Do It Now" featuring Busta Rhymes, "Fear Not Of Man", "Habitat", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
