Nick DrakeFamily Tree (previously unreleased) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sunbeam (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99
Rare early songs from Nick Drake – home recordings done before his three classic albums on Island Records, somewhat restored and remastered by his original sound engineer! The quality here is a fair bit better than most of the bootlegs from these years, and the overstuffed package features a whopping 29 tracks in all – beginning with more straightly-folksy tunes, and moving into territory that shows the more sophisticated styles that Drake would explore on his albums for Island. A few tracks feature vocals by his mother, Molly Drake, but the bulk of the work is by Nick – and overall, there's a surprisingly great quality to most of the tunes – the nascent genius that would emerge fully formed on Five Leaves Left. Titles include "Blossom", "Been Smoking Too Long", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Here Come The Blues", "If You Leave Me", "Blues Run The Game", "My Baby So Sweet", "Kimbie", "Bird Flew By", "Rain", "Strange Meeting II", "Come In To The Garden", "Poor Mum", "Time Piece", and "Strolling Down The Highway".

Mose AllisonMose Allison Takes To The Hills ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Incredible stuff – and Mose Allison at his finest! The record's got a rough and hard-grooving quality that surpasses even Allison's other albums for Prestige and Columbia from the time – an almost bluesy approach that comes out in the style of the recording – which features more rougher edges and room noise, and also a fair bit of Mose's own mumbling and humming along with his piano! Of course, it's Mose's actual vocals that really make the set work – but there's also a nice equal focus on his piano work too, plus some great support backing that includes Addison Farmer and Henry Grimes on bass, and Paul Motian and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include "Baby Please Don't Go", "Back On The Corner", "Life Is Suicide", "Mad With You", "I Ain't God Nobody", and "I Love The Life I Live". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul BascombBad Bascomb! ... CD
Delmark, Early 50s. Used ... $5.99
A tremendous tribute to the tenor talents of Paul Bascomb – pulled together here from rare 78rpm sides for United Records – including more than a few that were never issued at the time! Bascomb's got a rich and soulful tone – easily one of the best of the postwar generation, even though Paul never got the same sort of due as tenorists on big labels like King, Chess, or Savoy! The set features most of the same players on all tracks – Bascomb on tenor, Eddie Lewis on trumpet, Frank Porter and Tommy Waters on alto, and Duke Jordan on piano – and Porter sings on a few tracks too. Titles include "Mumbles Blues", "Blues & The Beat", "Black Out", "Nona", "Love's An Old Story", "Liza's Blues", and "Soul & Body". CD

Dennis BudimirAlone Together ... LP
Revelation, 1964. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Although guitarist Dennis Budimir played on dozens of jazz and studio sessions in the 60s and 70s, this is one of the few albums he ever cut as a leader. Budimir's got a compelling tone – a bit like Tal Farlow's during the 50s, with lots of chromatic edginess. Here, he's playing with Gary Foster on alto and tenor, and no other accompaniment – making for a spare moody sound that really lets both players shine in a way that's rarely heard on record. Titles include "Blues For Ray", "No Cover, No Minimum", "All The Things You Are", and "East Of The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Henry Junjo LawesJuno Presents – Evil Curse Of The Vampires (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Greensleeves, 1981. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein". 2LP version features a full bonus record of vocal versions – by Wailing Souls, Wayne Jarrett, Johnny Osbourne, and Michael Prophet!

Los TerrificosGo South – Vaya Pa'l Sur (2LP 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
Los Terrificos really live up to their name here – in a set of sounds that take Latin roots and push them into the trippy territory you might expect from the cover! The group's headed up by Ray Lugo, who we love from other creative contemporary Latin projects – and he's really outdone himself here, by drawing deep from a range of South American rhythms – complicated changes that are sometimes served up in more classic instrumental arrays, sometimes with more unusual keyboard lines that give the whole thing a strong 21st Century vibe! Ray sings on the record, but the vocals are really the lesser focus – as the core energy comes from interplay between guitar lines, keyboards, bass, percussion, and some other sweet electric touches. Titles include "La Mordida", "A Correr", "La Pantera", "Todos Pa'L Norte", "Muerte En La Galera", "Cachas De Oro", "El Camino Azul", and "Polvo Plomo Poder". So heavy, the whole thing had to be pressed as two 45rpm records for maximum sound! LP, Vinyl record album

Duke LumumbaJungle Funk ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed! The record is a gem all the way through – a really unique mixture of LA soul jazz and African rhythms, with a sound that's almost like Hugh Masekela sitting in with the Jazz Crusaders! Of course, there's a lot of Jazz Crusaders in the set – as Wilton Felder plays electric bass on the album, giving it a fantastic loping groove – but there's also plenty of unique albums on the record, especially its way of approaching the rhythms with a sly, syncopated groove that's immediately infectious! Duke's trumpet solos are great, and they're augmented by tenor work by Chester Washington and trombone by George Bohannon – all nicely grooving on the album's brilliant blend of jazzy tracks. Titles include "Jungle Funk", "Afrikaloo", "Akagruge", "Like It Is", "Mafam", and "Peace Brother". Somebody put this one on CD – and do us all a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Munro QuartetEastern Horizons ... CD
Philips/Be! (Germany), 1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A totally cool little record – and one that more than lives up to the Eastern promise of its cover! The album's a real stunner from Australian reedman Charlie Munro – a beautiful mix of jazz and exotic elements, at a level that puts it up there with a rare few records that work this well – like the Indo-Jazz experiments of Joe Harriott, the earlier recordings of Ahmed Abdul Malik, and maybe the legendary Jazz Meets World series on MPS! Munro's range of influences is nicely varied here – with some elements of Indian music, others borrowed from Japan, and even some from points that are a bit more Mid-East – mostly delivered on familiar jazz instrumentation, but with very dramatic results. Charlie plays tenor, alto, soprano sax, and bass clarinet – plus a bit of flute and cello too – and the rest of the group includes Mark Bowden on drums and vibes, Neville Whitehead on bass, and Bob McIvor on trombone – an instrument that's often used in these dark, bassy tones with the rhythms. Titles include "Islamic Suite", "Arch's Groove", "Malahari Raga", "David", "Japanese Love Song", "Minimum", "When I Look At You", and "Raised Eyebrows". CD

Renee RosnesWritten In The Rocks ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
One of the most compelling albums we've heard from pianist Renee Rosnes in a long time – a set that features Rosnes working at the head of a very hip quintet with Steve Nelson on vibes and Steve Wilson on alto, flute, and soprano sax! Both of the Steves really open up the sound here – taking the music into deeper, more ambitious territory than usual for Renee – especially as the core of the album is built around the extended "Galapagos Suite", which features these patterns of shifting colors and shades that are especially great in the way they combine the piano and Nelson's vibes. The rest of the group features the mighty Peter Washington on bass and Bill Stewart on drums – and titles include "Goodbye Mumbai", "Lucy From Afar", "Written In The Rocks", "The KT Boundary", "So Simple A Beginning", and "From Here To A Star".

Wanda Sa & Celia VazBrasileiras ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful set of Brazilian vocals – inflected with a bit of bossa inspiration, but coming off a lot more freely overall! Wanda Sa and Celia Vaz sing dual vocals on a haunting set of tracks that have a strangely spacey sound, thanks to the lilting loveliness of the ladies' voices. The overall effect is kind of like a prime late 70s/early 80s Joyce session – and it's no surprise that Joyce guests on the record, along with Gal Costa, Nana Caymmi, and Quarteto Em Cy. Titles include "Amazon River", "Aqua de Beber", "Lugar Comum", "Uma Bencao", and "Molambo". Very nice! CD

Silja Schriever KlassenBollywood – The Passion Of Indian Film & Music (hardcover book – with 4CDs) ... Book
Ear Books (Germany), 2006. New Copy ... $14.99 50.00
A nice entry-level presentation of the sights and sounds of Bollywood – a book whose pictures focus maybe a bit more on the streets of Mumbai than the images of its films, but which also offers up a fair bit of music on its bonus 4CDs as well! The book's not one for Bollywood completists, but it does offer up a great way to sample the sonic side of Indian culture – alongside some nicely-shot full color photographs of scenes from film shoots, movie openings, and even movie posters on the streets of India. CDs each have a different theme – and are titled "Bollypop", "Bollyjazz", "Bollyrock", and "Bollydance" – and feature a range of Indian film music from the late 60s onward! Book

✨✧ SeedsRaw & Alive – The Seeds In Concert – Merlin's Music Box ... LP
GNP, 1968. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from this seminal group, and captures them in a format that really lets them take off! Their studio sessions were always great, but this one's got a special edge from letting all the instruments work together in the same space at once, with no edits or dubs. The core combo sounds wonderful – searing guitar, trippy keyboard lines, and all the sneering vocals the young Sky Saxon can muster – served up over tracks that include "Mr. Farmer", "No Escape", "Satisfy You", "Night Time Girl", "Up In Her Room", "Gypsy Plays His Drums", "Mumble And Bumble", "Forest Outside Your Door", "900 Million People Daily All Making Love", and "Pushin' Too Hard".

Wadada Leo SmithRed Chrysanthemums – Live 1977 ... CD
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1977. New Copy ... $11.99
An unreleased set of solo performances from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – one that we'd rank right up there with his most adventurous work of the 70s! Smith comes across wonderfully on the record – full of soul and imagination, and easily as impressive on his solo instruments as scenemate Roscoe Mitchell could be in a similar setting – always moving around with thoughtful shifts in timing and purpose, in ways that always make the whole performance feel very organic, especially as Smith moves between other instruments that include flute, percussion, gongs, and steelophone. Titles include "Jupiter's Astro Waves", "Blue Green Gardens Of The Indigenous People", and "Pan Sonic Fire Rhythms/Red Chrysanthemums/Dark Purple Night On Crater Lake With A Clear View Of Saturn's Rings & Moons".

Clark TerryAngyumaluma Bongliddleany Nannyany Awhan Yi! ... LP
Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Forget any biases you might have against Clark Terry – this album is a super-hip killer! The arrangements were handled by Joe Cain, a mad mad mad Latin arranger who brings a strange sense of rhythm to the session, and a unique way of inserting instrumental flourishes. There's some nice organ and firey piano, Jerome Richardson plays excellent bits on flute and sax, and Vince Bell and Eric Gale both play guitars. Jose Mangual and Willie Bobo kick it in with percussion, and Terry plays in a tight jaunty style, with occasional mad vocal moments. Titles include "El Blues Latino", "The Cat From Cadiz", "Rum & Mumbles", and "Never". LP, Vinyl record album

Vijana Jazz BandKoka Koka Sex Battalion – Rumba, Koka Koka, & Kamata Sukuma – Music from Tanzania 1975 to 1980 ... CD
Sterns (UK), Late 70s. Used ... $9.99
Not jazz in any American sense of the music – but some wonderful Tanzanian grooves from the late 70s, often inflected with some really freewheeling work on guitar! The music here is heavy on percussion at the bottom, but has a really sprightly feel overall – perfect for the dancefloor, where this group was quite popular on the East African scene – but with a complexity that also makes the whole thing pretty compelling for a more cerebral listen as well! Interweaving melodic lines really hold things together wonderfully – as the vocals cascade over guitars, all sewn together with these basslines that seem to step along at a slower pace than everything else. The set brings together some of the group's hits, some more obscure recordings, and features full notes in English. Titles include "Lela", "Gwe Manetu Fii", "Heka Heka", "Koka Koka #1", "Magdalena", "Gubu La Mume", "Pili Nihurumie", "Salima Utakujajuta", and "Utatugombanisha". CD

Roosevelt WardellRevelation ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Very Good- ... $19.99
A very earthy set of piano tracks, recorded by LA pianist Roosevelt Wardell – who was one of the ultra-hip discoveries that Cannonball Adderley brought to Riverside Records during the early 60s! Wardell's got a heck of a lot of blues in his playing, but overall he's a jazz player – working with Sam Jones and Louis Hayes to craft some tunes that almost out "soul jazz" Cannonball's own work! Titles include "The Revelation", "Elijah Is Here", "Lazarus", "Like Someone In Love", and "Max The Maximum". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousEccentric Soul – Capitol City Soul ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 25.98
The Numero Group takes a great step backwards – returning to the capital city of Ohio, Columbus – to mine the same soul and funk treasure trove of their Capsoul collection! The music here comes from the same scene – and often from Capsoul or related labels – and the set offers up a stunning array of rare gems, many of which were never even pressed on record – all showing Columbus to be one of the funkiest, grooviest cities in the US during the early 70s! Lots of the work here has that same heavy groove that we love from the Capsoul collection – and since that initial Numero foray into the compilation business, the label has only become more skilled at unearthing and presenting great sounds like this. The package features notes on both the music and the project of researching it – plus a long appendix on the local labels featured, along with photos and label scans too! Titles include "Woe Is Me" by Kool Blues, "I Need Your Love" by Chandlers, "Funky Disposition" by Dean Francis & Soul Rockers, "Lose The One You Love" by Soul Partners, "Look In The Mirror" by Vondors, "Hysteria" by Four Mints, "This Is The Way That I Am" by La Fez, "When He's Gone" by Associated Press, "Excuse Me Miss" by Jupiter's Release, and "I've Been Trying" by Love Maximum.

JoyceBossa Duets ... CD
Sony (Japan), 2003. New Copy ... About July 6, 2016
Magical work from the lovely Joyce – a set of duets with some of her favorite players and singers – some of our favorites too! The album has Joyce working in a stripped-down and intimate style – vocals and acoustic guitar tripping out over gentle bossa rhythms, joined on various tracks by artists that include Joao Donato, Toninho Horta, Johnny Alf, Wanda Sa, and daughter Ana Martins. Given the presence of the older bossa luminaries, the album's got a sophisticated and mature sound that's quite nice, and in contrast to some of Joyce's other recent recordings – a bit mellower, perhaps, but also more deeply thoughtful, and at many levels, sadder and wiser. Titles include "Lugar Comum", "Voce E Eu", "Yarabela", "Plexus", "London Samba", "O Sapo", "E Vamos La", and "Fa Da Bahia". And just in case you were wondering, all tracks are exclusive to this album – recorded in 2003! CD
