✨✧ Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli)Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star (two-tone vinyl with star design) ... LP
Rawkus, 1998. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first full-length from Mos Def and Talib Kweli together as Black Star – a benchmark moment in hip hop history, and one of the finest duo vocal hip hip records of the 90s – and one of the best ever on Rawkus! In hindsight, it's all the more rewarding given Talib Kweli's longevity in proud, mic skills centric hip hop and while highs and lows of Mos Def's work as the years rolled along – and it still stands as strong (then) underground hip hop that takes on the ghetto fabulous themes of the day and well beyond. Stand out cuts include "Definition" "Twice Inna Lifetime", "Children's Story" – the Slick Rick classic redone along the lines of Jeru's "One Day" – and "Respiration" featuring Common Sense – and other tracks include "Brown Skin Lady", "Yo Yeah", "Thieves In The Night", "Twice Inna Lifetime and more. 13 in all.

Delicious Vinyl/Bicycle Music, Mid 90s. New Copy 3LP ... $26.99 30.98
A compilation of pivotal mid 90s Dilla productions and remixes – classics and rarities from the Pharcyde, N'Dea Davenport, and the Brand New Heavies with guest appearances by Q-Tip and Mos Def – great stuff from the prime Delicious Vinyl years! It's full of bedrock jazzy funk from Jay Dee – a 3 LP set with vocal versions on the first 2 LPs and instrumentals on the 3rd. This is a great refresher course on Jay Dee's golden age pedigree – especially if you came on board with Dilla in the later Stones Throw years – featuring his earlier genius productions plus a second disc featuring instrumental versions. Proceeds from the LP are to go to Ma Dukes. Titles include "Runnin'" (plus instrumental), "Somethin' That Means Somethin'" (plus instrumental), "Bullsh*t" (plus instrumental), Y?

A strong collection of rarities and B-sides from mic mainstay Talib Kweli – always one of the more verbally dexterous MCs in the game – and given the man's brilliant, seemingly spontaneous style, it's little wonder that some really top notch material has gotten set aside over the years!

Blue Note, 2001. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Charlie Hunter's back in a straight grooving mode – getting tight and funky in a set of tracks that features some guest vocals from the likes of Mos Def, Kurt Elling, and Norah Jones. Don't worry about Charlie losing control to the vocalists – because his guitar's still at the head of the set, carving out some great lines with that unique tone of his, setting up a nice batch of grooves that are only further augmented by the singers. Elling's cut is fantastic, sounding a lot like some of the recent Mark Murphy groove-oriented tunes – and titles include "Desert Way", "Street Sounds", "Mitch Better Have My Bunny", "Creole", "Close Your Eyes", "Sunday Morning", and "Day Is Done", a remake of the Nick Drake song!

The new work is great – even better than the tunes from their original album, with a sophisticated level of production that matches their already-great vocals with some really well-chosen grooves and sample riffs. And the live work's a revelation too – as lovely as the pair's studio work, and done with a great style that shows that their voices sound just as great in front of a crowd! New songs include "Wanna Be Where U R (Thisizzaluvsong)", featuring Mos Def, "Have Faith", and "Tell Me When" – and live songs include "Sunshine", "If I Was A Bird", "Say Yes", "Butterflies", "Floetic", "Hey You", and "Getting Late".

Rob AgerbeekMiss Dee ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A heck of a set from Dutch pianist Rob Agerbeek – easily one of the most soulful European pianists of the 70s, even in an acoustic setting like this! Rob's got a bite on the keys that reminds us a lot more of American players from the 60s – not a straight soul jazz groove, but a style that definitely draws from that mode – then opens up into some more lyrical elements that are more in keeping with overseas expression in the 70s. The trio matches his energy nicely – especially on the upbeat numbers that rule the set – with bass from Harry Emmery and drums from Eric Ineke – on titles that include "Little Miss Dee", "Cup Bearers", "Birk's Works", "Caravan", and "Out Of This World".

AkikoWhat's Jazz? – Spirit ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2008. New Copy ... $24.99
The "spirit" side to Akiko's What's Jazz series – and her most dancefloor-styled record to date! The set features key contributions from Yukihiro Fukutomi, Yoshito Tanaka, and Hajime Yoshizawa – all of whom bring a fair bit of contemporary elements to the mix – soulful beats, warm keyboards, and the kind of grooves you don't normally find on a record by Akiko – but which sound surprisingly great with her jazz-trained vocals! There's definitely a lot of spirit here – a rich sort of sound that really makes us appreciate Akiko even more than before, especially given that she wrote most of the tunes herself. Titles include "Real", "Universal Love", "Big Bang", "Take Me There", "Music Elevation", "The Transformer", "Voce Me Faz", and "The Reason Of My Tears". CD

✨✧ Toshiko AkiyoshiJust Bebop ... LP
Disc O Mate (Japan), 1980. Near Mint- ... $28.99
One of the coolest sessions we've ever heard from pianist Toshiko Akioshi – a great US session that features Charles McPherson on alto sax! The album definitely lives up to its bebop title, but it's also far more than that too – and really shows the depth in Akioshi's playing in the years since she first cracked the US scene in the 50s as a big devotee of Bud Powell's style. Although some tunes are boppish, there's a nice degree of sensitivity in the music too – and McPherson's alto sax really helps bring this side in strongly – as the album's almost that same mix of modes that he was showing in his great late 60s work as a leader for Prestige. Toshiko produced the session herself, and other players include Steven Huffsteter on trumpet and flugelhorn, Gene Cherico or Bob Bowman on bass, and Roy McCurdy on drums. Titles include "Serpent's Tooth", "Mobius Trip", "Con Alma", "Joy Spring", "Kelo", and "I Thought About You". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... LP
A&M, 1965. Very Good ... $1.99
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo".

✨✧ Curtis AmyKatanga ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1963. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A stellar set from one of the most underrated reed players of all time – a brilliant bit of searching soul jazz, cut at a time when Curtis Amy was leaving behind his Texas roots for the new sounds of the Coltrane generation! The album's quite different than the organ and tenor dates that Amy had previously cut with Paul Bryant – and instead, is put together with a nascent spiritualism that's really wonderful – a sound that definitely lives up to the bold title and cover image, with lots of modal moments in the rhythms! The group features some equally under-acknowledge geniuses – including trumpeter Dupree Bolton, pianist Jack Wilson, and guitarist Ray Crawford – all coming together perfectly with Amy's work on tenor and soprano sax. The best tunes here are originals by the group members – including "Lonely Woman" (not by Ornette), "Katanga", "Native Land", and "Amyable". LP, Vinyl record album

Neil Ardley's New Jazz OrchestraCamden 70 ... CD
Dusk Fire (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
A never-issued live set from the legendary Brit leader Neil Ardley – recorded right during his classic years, and featuring a host of leading jazz luminaries of his scene! The material features both original compositions by Neil, plus some surprising other inclusions as well – all wrapped together in some of the most creative jazz orchestra modes of the UK scene of the time, and played by a cast that includes Henry Lowther and Harry Beckett on trumpet, Mike Gibbs on trombone, Dick Heckstall-Smith on tenor and soprano sax, Barbara Thompson on alto and flute, Frank Jellett on vibes, and Dave Greenslade on Hammond and electric piano. The horns are mighty heavy – blowing both with a nice sense of force on the heads, but also allowing some good space for players to really stretch out and do their thing – and although Ardley's got a definite modern bent to his vision here, there's also plenty of stone groovy moments too. Titles include "Rope Ladder To The Moon", "Tanglewood", "Stratusfunk", "Dusk Fire", "Naima", "Rebirth", "Study", "Ballad", and "Le Dejeuner Sur L'Herbe". CD

Arp LifeJumbo Jet/Z Bezpiecznq Szybkosciq (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Sweet sweet grooves from 70s Poland – played by a studio combo who've got a definite flair for a disco-styled sound! The set features two full albums by the group – the first of which is their legendary Jumbo Jet record – a massive blend of keyboards, light strings, and other rhythmic elements – all at a level that easily rivals some of the best clubby styles from the other side of the Iron Curtain at the time! Most tracks are instrumental, and often just get a bit of female chorus elements bubbling through the mix – in this kind of Euro sexy style that's mighty nice. The overall sound is more Euro or Canadian disco – but still quite nice – and the set includes the funky number "Bu Bu", plus "Motor Rock", "Olo Boogie", "Hotel Victoria", "Baby Bump", "Jumbo Jet", and "Apolobamba". Next is the group's follow-up set – Z Bezpiecznq Szybkosciq – a record that you might spend a week trying to pronounce, but one that will grab you right away with its sound! Arp Life stick strongly in their best clubby modes here – mixing the keyboards of their name with some sweet disco-styled rhythms, and the occasional female chorus vocal, in a style that's pretty great if you dig the dancefloor sounds coming from France, Germany, and Italy in the late 70s. Most tracks are instrumentals – the set includes solos on alto sax and harmonica at times – and the album was only ever issued as a cassette back in the 70s, which makes this version a great surprise. Titles include "Akwarele", "Papagayo", "Bam Bam Bam", "San Jose", "Klik Klak", "Slon I Mrowka", and "Tango Mundial". CD features four bonus tracks too – "Bump", "Bilbao", "Adelajda", and "Tonpress".

Atlantide (Jean Paul Massiera)Atlantide (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Replica (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of the most rock-oriented sets we've ever heard from JP Massiera – who wrote all the words and music here for a French group who take on the myth of Atlantide! The style mixes tuneful lines on guitar, bass, drums, and percussion – without some of the keyboards you might expect from the prog scene at the time, and instead this warmly harmonic approach on the vocals – at a level that almost seems to take off nicely from the multi-tracking style used by Yes! And there is a bit of cool acoustic guitar soloing – very deft, and another Yes-like touch – but the overall sound of the record is very unique, as you'd expect from the participation of Massiera. Titles include "Images", "Atlantide", "Soleil Noir", "Reverie", and "Le Regard Des Dieux". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Near Mint- ... $44.99
Pre-ESP Records work from the legendary Albert Ayler – and a really special set that definitely shows his strong ties to a previous legacy of African-American music! Ayler always clamed blues and other roots in his sound, but didn't always show them as clearly – given his free-thinking, forward-moving approach – yet this set has Albert really reworking an older influence, by taking older songs from gospel and secular sources, and using them as a completely compelling springboard for his new ideas on tenor and soprano sax! The album's the sort that David Murray might have cut in the mid 80s – but conceived by Ayler two decades before – and sadly unissued for years after its recording, possibly because it's a very sensitive, soulful set that's different than the frenetic power of later albums on ESP. A real treasure throughout – with work from Call Cobbs Jr on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Murray on drums – on titles that include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Deep River", "Goin Home", "Ol Man River", "Down By The Riverside", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

BachsOut Of The Bachs (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Time Lag Records/Out-Sider (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
Raw sounds from the US underground, circa 1968 – by a group who clearly grew in the garage, but sprung forth with a whole range of new ideas too! Sometimes the Bachs can have this bite that's almost pre-punk, but other moments have this warmly harmonic feel that's quite a surprise – still delivered with a nice edge, given the indie production of the set – which definitely lives up to the spirit of the album's original print run of only 150 copies! All songs are originals, and surprisingly well-written at times – with these dark lyrical turns that are a great foil for the twin lead vocals – almost with the moody feel of Syd Barrett on the shorter, spookier early Pink Floyd tunes, but a lot rougher. Titles include Free Fall", "Answer To Yesterday", "Minister To A Mind Diseased", "Show Me That You Want To Go Home", "I'm A Little Boy", and "Tables Of Grass Fields". LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization! Although the sweet image of a girl and guitar on the cover might make you think the record's a folk set, the overall production is heavily electric – filled with fuzzed-up touches on the guitars, and usually supported by some funky drumming that gives most of the record a cool Eastern break sort of feel! Lyrics aren't in English, but they're oddly compelling even if you don't know what they mean – as Selda's voice has a weird other-wordly quality, and comes off with the same tripped-out qualities as the music! Titles include "Ince Ince", "Nasirli Eller", "Mehmet Emmi", "Dost Uyan", "Gitme", "Kizil Dere", "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz", and "Meydan Sizindir". LP features 2 bonus tracks – but it's not like you've got the original album, and needed those as an incentive to buy the reissue! LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players at their best, there's still plenty of sharp edges and deeply funky moments on the record – and if anything, the shift has really given The Bar-Kays a way to evolve their sound past some of the heavier modes of the early days, without losing any of the appeal of their groove! Some cuts have some great keyboards – almost producing a spacey funk feel at points – and titles include "Too Hot To Stop (part 1)", "You're So Sexy", "Cozy", "Spellbound", "Whitehouseorgy", and the nice mellow track "Summer Of Our Love".

Capitol, 1965. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A really cool little album from the Beach Boys – in a stripped down way we've never heard it before! The original version definitely takes its "party" title seriously, in a way that has the group singing in a somewhat live and spontaneous manner! There's sort of a "live in studio" feel here – with production that's less polished than on other records, and instrumentation that's heavy on acoustic guitar and percussion – almost like the group are hanging out at the beach, riffing on some of their favorite tunes. The album features the group's famous take on "Barbara Ann" – plus versions of a number of other 60s classics, like "The Times They Are A Changin", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "Mountain Of Love", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "Devoted To You", "Alley Oop", and "I Should Have Known Better". This great 2015 2CD version includes the classic original album and new version with added "party" elements stripped away, for a truer representation of the Beach Boys studio sound – a massive 81 bonus tracks, pulled from five different sessions in August and September of 1965!

There's really no going wrong with Movie Scenes. Madlib's beats on both volumes are short, and instantly nail the groove – moving into the next one just as soon as the scene is set. Another loveable bounty of beats from Madlib – who's gonna make a bad album eventually, no doubt, but he's defiantly great to date!

Bennington produced the record, and it definitely leans more towards his sound overall – but it's great to hear Preister in such company, blowing with these open, freely creative tones that almost take us back to his important lineage in the Sun Ra Arkestra of the early years. Titles include "Dust", "Portraits & Satellites", "In Waltz Time", "Call I", and "Return To Saturn" – plus a special "Re Sun Ra/Julian's Oral History" – which features Priester interviewed by Bennington.

Production is mostly by Narada Michael Walden, with that mix of warmth and depth that graced most of his soul sides from the time – but other tracks also get production from Kashif and Tommy LiPuma, who definitely up the pop quotient on the set.

It's a long long way from Destiny's Child – as Beyonce comes on here with a righteous power she's never had before – much more message-oriented, and with larger agenda than the catchy pop of her youth! The album got quite a buzz before release, and definitely lives up to that promise – certainly darker, and deeper than anything we've heard before from the singer – almost her own move into some of the territory that D'Angelo hit in recent years, although with a more mainstream R&B construction to some of the tunes. The record features guest work from Jack White, Kendrick Lamarr, The Weeknd, and James Blake – but Beyonce is clearly the main focus throughout – on titles that include "Pray You Catch Me", "Daddy Lessons", "Forward", "6 Inch", "Don't Hurt Yourself", "Hold UP", "Freedom", "All Night", and "Formation".

Art BlakeyNight At Birdland Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver – and featuring Clifford Brown on trumpet, just a few months before his early death – plus Lou Donaldson on alto and Curley Russell on bass. The presence of alto instead of tenor makes the sound slightly different than later incarnations of the group – and the overall approach is one that virtually defines the shift from straight bop to hardbop in the 50s – a mode that both Blakey and Silver were key in creating. Tracks include "Split Kick", "Quicksilver", "Mayreh", and "A Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album
