✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyBlack Messiah ... CD
Capitol/Dusty Groove, Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
A massive live set from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that really shows the growth he'd undergone in just a few short years! The album's done in close collaboration with David Axelrod – who'd handled Cannon's big live dates for Capitol in the 60s – but this record is much more freewheeling, open-ended, fuzz, funky, and electric overall! Tracks are all nice and long, and really trip out in the best way – with keyboards from George Duke in the core group, plus some heavy basslines from Walter Booker, drums from Roy McCurdy, and guitar from Mike Deasy on a number of key tracks. Deasy plays with lots of great wah wah and fuzz – and the album also features guest work from Airto on percussion and Ernie Watts on tenor – plus Cannonball's great alto and the cornet of brother Nat Adderley too. There's a really collaborative feel to the whole thing – as the record steps easily between a lot of heady styles – and titles include "Zanek", "Eye Of The Cosmos", "The Scene", "The Chocolate Nuisance", "The Steam Drill", "Little Benny Hen", and "The Black Messiah".

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Live! ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good ... $9.99
Cannonball Adderley with David Axelrod production – a combination that couldn't miss back in the 60s! In keeping with the success of the Mercy Mercy Mercy album done with Axelrod, Capitol did everything they could to catch Cannonball in a live setting – a great move, given the open, soulful energy his group had in the format – crowd-pleasing, but always plenty darn creative too! Added to the mix here is some nice production by David Axelrod, capturing all the right moments in all the right ways – especially when Joe Zawinul steps up to take some sweet solos on the keys – and the great Charles Lloyd serves up some mighty nice work on flute and tenor sax. Other players include Nat Adderley on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and titles include "The Song My Lady Sings", "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Work Song", and "Sweet Georgia Bright".

Cannonball AdderleySoul Zodiac ... CD
Capitol (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling all the way through – a darkly brooding batch of funky jazz that shows a strong Miles Davis electric influence at points, thanks to Nat Adderley's spacey trumpet lines, Mike Deasy's trippy guitar, and George Duke's excellent keyboards! Other tracks are a bit more laidback, fitting the mood of their respective signs – and overall, the whole thing slips and slides wonderfully from cut to cut – taking you through the star signs with a really righteous, soulful approach. Titles include "Cancer", "Sagittarius", "Pisces", "Aquarius", "Capricorn", "Virgo", "Taurus", "Aries", "Libra", and a special "Introduction". CD

Cannonball Adderley QuintetHappy People ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A really unique little album from Cannonball's all-great late years at Capitol – a session that features some strong influences from Brazilian music – "The Happy People" – and production from the legendary David Axelrod! The mix makes for a really unique little record – a set that isn't really bossa, but isn't regular Cannonball funk either – kind of a special hybrid of the two! Airto plays on the set, and contributed the great groover "The Happy People" – a long bit of funky samba that features George Duke on electric piano, and percussion and vocals by Airto himself. The rest of the album's pretty darn great too – with some long tracks that have a more open-ended groove than the usual Cannon funk – featuring more piano by Duke, percussion by Airto and King Errison, cornet by Nat Adderley, and guitar by David T Walker. Other titles include "Ela", "Maria Tres Filhos", and "Savior" – and the album was recorded live, with a very lively feel! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BandIslands ... LP
Capitol, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A truly underappreciated later album from The Band, made after they decided to hang it up as a touring act – one that holds up SO much better than it's given credit for, by thier die hard fans and even The Band itself – but it works for us! The Band's most legendary first couple of records were the product of a longtime road tested group of deeply invested craftsmen, working together in a beautifully intuitive way. By this point, they are well known to have been looking for an exit strategy – and while Islands is a strong batch of songs, masterfully played and soulfully sung – it's genuine charms get lost in the lore. It's a breezier, easier going affair than their more rawly passionate records, but it's an overlooked gem. Includes "Right As Rain", "Street Walker", "Ain't That A Lot Of Love", "Islands", "The Saga Of Pepote Rouge", "Knockin' Lost John", "Living In A Dream" and their sweet little take on "Georgia On My Mind", with Richard Manuel on lead vocals for a change, given this beauty of a pop standard a gruff edge that works wonderfully well.

✨✧ Basso Valdambrini Octet with Lars GullinNew Sound From Italy ... LP
Jolly/BTF (Italy), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A definite new sound from Italy – served up by one of the hippest groups on the scene at the time! The combo of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the best of their generation – and here, they're working in a slightly expanded octet mode that features guest work from Swedish baritone sax giant Lars Gullin! The album's great proof of Gullin's ability to slide into any sort of a setting – and his baritone provides a great bottom to the already-dextrous horn interplay between Basso and Valdambrini. Gullin arranged about half the numbers in the set – the rest were scored by George Gruntz or Piero Umiliani – and titles include "Blues For Gassman", "Indiana", "Fascinating Rhythm", "There Will Never Be Another You", "How About You", and "Peter Of April".

✨✧ Beatles/George MartinYellow Submarine ... LP
Apple, 1968. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Sure it's a soundtrack, and sure it's got a number of songs that are just instrumentals from the film – but the record also features some excellent late Beatles tracks that can only be found here – including the killer tracks "Hey Bulldog" (almost a funky nugget), "Only A Northern Song", and "All Together Now". Also includes "Yellow Submarine" (natch) – plus "It's All Too Much" and "All You Need Is Love" – and side two features a number of groovy instrumentals from George Martin – including "Pepperland", "Sea Of Holes", "March Of The Meanies", and "Pepperland Laid Waste".

✨✧ George CablesIn Good Company ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Pianist George Cables is definitely in good company here – just the right sort of trio that seems to unlock that natural pulse and flow in his music! George is always great, but some records like this really bring him to his height – that magical energy that first seemed to grace Cables' music back in the 70s, when he could play an acoustic piano with the spirit of an electric – thanks to a special touch on the keys, and an inherently rhythmic approach! That mode is still strongly in place here – especially during the many moments in which the bass of Essiet Essiet seems wrapped right around Cables' keys, creating this tonal depth that we totally love. The trio also features really lovely work from the great Victor Lewis on drums – and titles include "After The Morning", "Mr Anonymouse", "Lotus Blossom", "Love You Madly", "Voyage", and "EVC". CD

John Carter & Bobby BradfordFlight For Four (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/International Phonograph, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 22.98
Spectacular work from one of the most groundbreaking groups of its time – the legendary John Carter/Bobby Bradford Quartet – quite possibly the hippest thing going in the LA scene of the late 60s! The group includes Carter on alto and tenor, Bradford on trumpet – working together in these amazing lines that have both players running off together in a style that's free, but often quite rhythmic – spurred on to move past the new freedoms unlocked by the Ornette Coleman group a few years before! Yet the vibe here is very different than Ornette, too – given the bold, righteous power that comes through in the voices of both players – working here at a level that seems to blow away just about anything else going on in the American avant garde at the time. The group has just two more players to round out its amazing sound – Tom Williamson on bass, and Bruz Freeman (brother of Von and George!) on drums – and all tracks are long and free, yet also fragile and intimate – with an almost painterly sense of beauty and emotion that stands in stark contrast to much of the avant work of the time coming out of the east coast. Titles include "Domino", "Abstractions For Three Lovers", "Woman", and "The Second Set". CD
(Great LP-styled gatefold cover – just like the rare original album! Pressing is nearly sold out – and we were able to get ahold of just a few more copies! Get it while we got it!)

✨✧ Miles DavisMiles In The Sky ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
Miles Davis makes the electric transition – in this groundbreaking set from the late 60s! The classic mid 60s quintet is still in place here – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – but the sound is looser, freer, and more spacious – often echoing some of the rhythmic concerns that would dominate Miles' music in a few more years, but without as much of a bombastic sound. Williams' drums are amazing – fierce one minute, then fading the next – and Herbie Hancock's use of both electric and acoustic piano really points at his own directions in coming years. George Benson plays one one track – "Paraphernalia" – introducing electric guitar to the Miles Davis sound – and other long tracks on the set include "Stuff", "Black Comedy", and "Country Son".

Del The Funky HomosapienBoth Sides Of The Brain ... CD
Hiero Imperium, 2000. Used ... $5.99
Brother George's legendary status aside, this is probably Del's strongest album over all, to our ears anyway. Del's early 90s debut brought the heavy, heavy funk (thanks in no small part to Del's cousin/producer Ice Cube) and an abstract, amusing, but still confrontational lyrical style that we really hadn't heard before. The highs on those first couple albums were just about as great as that era of hip hop could get, and if Both Sides Of The Brain doesn't contain the moments of dizzying aesthetic epiphany, it makes up for it with album length consistency. Both Sides has a literate approach, and ironic dives into the low brow that crack us up before alienating our beat happy selves with his borderline smug intelligence. Great, great hip hop that sounds as hot today as it did in 2000, and as it will in 2020! Includes "Time Is Too Expensive", "If You Must" , "Jaw Gymnastics", "Style Police", "Fake As F**k", "Disastrous", "Phoney Phranchise", and more. CD

Gil EvansIndividualism of Gil Evans ... LP
Verve, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
Although Gil Evans is probably best remembered for his work behind Miles Davis, the albums he cut on his own are actually even more interesting, and feature a far-reaching conception of modern jazz, executed by Evans, and some of the top players of his day. This great album from 1964 features a host of wonderful musicians – including Steve Lacy, Eric Dolphy, Johnny Coles, and Wayne Shorter. The set includes mostly original compositions by Evans, like "Las Vegas Tango", "El Toreador", "Flute Song", and "Hotel Me" – all of them a shimmering blend of free solos and tightly composed orchestral passages, filled with rich colors and shades of warm imagination!

Tommy FlanaganGiant Steps – In Memory Of John Coltrane ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1982. Used ... $7.99
A wonderful little tribute to the late, great John Coltrane – served up as a piano trio session led by Tommy Flanagan, but done with a sense of power and imagination that rivals the strength of Trane's classics! All tracks here are originals by Coltrane, performed by Flanagan with a forceful approach to the piano that shows a bit more McCoy Tyner than usual – and which is propelled strongly on most numbers by bold rhythm work from the team of George Mraz on bass and Al Foster on drums. Foster's work on the kit is especially nice – quite bold, and really soaring forward with a sense of righteous energy – inspiring Flanagan to heights we've never heard before on a session like this. Titles include "Naima", "Giant Steps", "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Central Park West", "Mr PC", and "Cousin Mary". CD

Forbidden WorldsForbidden Worlds Collected Works Vol 5 – February to August 1954 – Issues 26-32 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
Dig creepy comics? This book is full of them – a wealth of wonderful issues of the legendary Forbidden Worlds series from the 50s – a groundbreaking publication that set a whole new standard for horror and sci fi stories at the time – and a great companion to the legendary Adventures Into The Unknown, also from the same publisher! The volume is very well done – and features rare 50s comics in very vivid color – filled with stories of ghouls, demons, spirits, and other supernatural forces – all penned at the very high ACG level – which means thoughtful plotting, and a real sense of story structure. Even the original ads and text pages are included – and these issues feature artwork from Ken Bald, Bob Forgione, George Klein, Sheldon Moldoff, Sam Citron, Dick Beck, Art Gates, Lin Streeter, Ken Landau, and others! 288 pages, hardcover, and in vivid color!

FunkadelicFree Your Mind . . . And Your Ass Will Follow (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
An insane classic from one of the wildest funk bands ever! According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid! We don't know if that story's entirely true, but the music on the album certainly backs it up – as it's some of the band's freest, most open-ended, most heavy-jamming work ever recorded! Guitars dominate over funky bass and drums – and the whole thing's an amazing blend of music, swirled together into a non-stop psychedelic party that includes P-Funk gems like "Funky Dollar Bill", "Free Your Mind", "Eulogy and Light", and "I Wanna Know If It's Good To You".

✨✧ Stan GetzBossas & Ballads – The Lost Sessions ... CD
Verve, 1989. Used ... $7.99
A lost late session by Stan Getz – and one of his greatest recordings of the 80s! The album's got the simple elegance of some of his best Verve work – with a group that features Stan on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The combination of Barron and Getz is magical – with a laidback soulfulness that takes us back to the days of Sweet Rain, Voices, and some of our favorite Getz sessions from the 60s. Tracks are all quite long – most well over 7 minutes – with a simple, unfettered approach that offers Stan in all his lyrical beauty. Recorded in 1989 – but oddly never issued until now – and a real treasure all the way through! Titles include "Beatrice", "Spiral", "Sunshow", "Joanne Julia", "Soul Eyes", and "El Sueno". CD

Stan GetzStockholm Concert ... CD
Gazell, 1983. Used ... $6.99
Great live Stan Getz from the early 80s – a time when he was really opening up a lot in a concert setting like this – bringing a mature charm to his music that's totally great! That undeniable Getz sound is still fully in place here – the sound we came to love on older Verve sides of the 50s and 60s, filtered perhaps a bit through the understated brilliance of his early Concord years – delivered with a great rhythm section that includes Jim McNeely on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – all players who really know when to step away and let Stan really dominate the set, but always give just a little pulse of energy to keep things going, too. Titles include "O Grande Amor", "The Baggage Room Blues", "Blood Count", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "I'll Remember April", and "We'll Be Together Again". CD

Robert GlasperBlack Radio ... LP
Blue Note, 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 34.98
An amazing new chapter in the career of Robert Glasper – one of our favorite new jazz musicians of the past decade or so! This set features loads of Glasper's enigmatic piano lines – those fluid, elliptical sounds that are always filled with plenty of soul and imagination – matched here with guest vocals from a host of key talents – including Erykah Badu, Lalah Hathaway, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Bilal, and Lupe Fiasco! The blend is surprisingly wonderful – not a sell out at all, but a way for Glaspar's music to reach a rich new level of expression – as the vocals really help the instrumental elements come alive – and unlock this side of Robert's potential that was always lurking in the background. One of the best musical moments we've heard from Blue Note in years – with titles that include "Always Shine", "Move Love", "Ah Yeah", "Lift Off", "Afro Blue", "Cherish The Day", "Black Radio", and "Letter To Hermione". LP, Vinyl record album
