✨✧ Kuumba-Toudie HeathKawaida ... LP
Obe, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A super-hip batch of soul jazz tracks by Albert Toodie Heath of the Heath Brothers – working here on a rare session as a leader, with a sound that's right up there with the Heath Brothers' early work for Strata East!! The lineup is incredible – as Heath is joined by players that include Don Cherry, Buster Williams, Mtume, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Heath, and Ed Blackwell – all coming together for a session that's nearly lost to the history books, but which is one of the strongest spiritual jazz sessions of the late 60s! Herbie plays all acoustic piano throughout, and the tracks are long, leaping, and loping – with stretched-out spiritual solos from Jimmy Heath and Don Cherry – and a proud and righteous sound that's extremely free-spirited without going too far out! Titles include "Baraka", "Maulana", "Dunia", and "Kamili". LP, Vinyl record album

Jason AjemianFolklords ... CD
Delmark, 2014. Used ... $3.99
One of the trippiest albums we've heard from Delmark in recent years – a really creative session from bassist Jason Ajemian, and one that links the label's avant jazz work to some of the deeper sides of Chicago's indie scene! Ajemian is free to work without any sense of genre or convention – in a mode that still hits plenty of jazz, with key use of work by Monk, Mingus, and Sun Ra – but which really abstracts things and takes them to a whole new level – opening up cosmic territory that lives up to the album's stated request to "Please Feel Yourselves". Ajemian plays bass and some electronics, in a quartet that also features Owen Stewart Robertson on guitar and electronics, Kid Bliss on alto sax and vibrolux, and Jason Nazary on drums – the last of which are played in a very slow, spacious style. All tracks are long – and titles include "Ask Mr Blunt Now" – which features extrapolations of "Satellites Are Spinning" and "Ask Me Now" – and "Orange Is The Color Of The Sun Then Blue Sky" – which is built upon some key Charles Mingus tunes. Other titles are originals, and include "Punk The Blues", "Material Girls", and "Freedom Is A Trail Of Tears". CD

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaAcapulco '22 ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Excellent work from Laurindo – a truly wonderful album, played with small combo backing, which gives the set a jazzier feel than usual! Players include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Bob Cooper on tenor, Howard Roberts on guitar, and Shelly Manne, Milt Holland, and Chico Guerro on percussion – and although there's no credits for the arrangements on the album, the overall feel is similar to Roberts best work for Capitol, especially because Rowles' work on organ gives the record such a groovy sound! Titles include "Acapulco 1922", "Misirlou", "Satin Doll", "More", "Till Then", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "Desafinado". LP, Vinyl record album

Jarrard AnthonyReady To Live ... CD
Purpose, 2012. Used ... $7.99
A hell of a great album from Jarrard Anthony – an artist who's been bubbling under for the past few years – but who really comes into his own with this beautiful album! The set's got all the spiritual overtones you might guess from the cover – but also comes across with a tightly-crafted, all-soul approach too – a really rich vibe that's a perfect fit for Anthony's positive-spirited lyrics! Instrumentation is relatively lean – mostly handled by Nate Smith – yet comes across with a focus that seems to make a lot out of a little – a really great groove that builds nicely as the album rolls along. The album features guest work by Lonnie Liston Smith, Monet, Darien, Amer Amen, Amma Whatt, and Onaje Allan Gumbs – and titles include a remake of Don Blackman's "I Love You" – plus "Morning In The Forest", "Healer", "Cloud 10", "Something Like Love", "Never See Her Again", "Lucky Day", and "Blowing On Your Back". Also features the bonus track "Damn Sista (future remix)" with Eric Roberson – and "Never See Her Again". CD

Antibalas Afrobeat OrchestraLiberation Afrobeat Volume 1 (Ninja Tune) ... CD
Ninja Tune, 2001. Used ... $4.99
Amazing funk from this new Afro Beat combo! Forget that they're a bunch of young guys from New York – because the sound of this one is pure 70s Africa, with hard heavy drum work, super-tight horn riffing, spiraling keyboard lines, and some excellent guitar! You probably also know the work of the group from the Daktaris CD on Desco – and like that one, this album sounds like it's got roots that are 30 years old, and a sound that's actually more perfect and more satisfying than some of the best Afro-Funk of the 70s. This expanded Ninja Tune pressing features one more track than the original US version – and titles include "Si Se Puede", "Battle Of The Species", "NESTA", "Dirt & Blood", "Musicawai Slit", "Uprising", "World War IV", and "El Machete".

✨✧ AzymuthAzimuth (Linha Do Horizonte) ... CD
Som Livre/Far Out (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City". CD

Gary BartzJu Ju Man ... LP
Catalyst, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A rare treat by Gary Bartz – and very different than most of his other work! The album's a small group session – with Charles Mims on piano, Curtis Robertson on bass, and Howard King on drums – recorded with the feel of a looser soul jazz set on Black Jazz or Strata East. Mims' is great on piano, and working with Bartz, the pair come up with some wonderfully soulful numbers that have a very earthy feel. Tracks include "Ju Ju Man", "Pisces Daddy Blue", and "Chelsea Bridge" – plus a version of "My Funny Valentine", with vocals by Syreeta. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Les BaxterHell's Belles ... LP
Sidewalk, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60's, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats! Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove" and "Scoobee Doo". The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy fuzzy guitar to go around nicely! A few tracks have vocals, but the instrumentals more than make up for any weak spots. Essential.

Beaver & KrauseGandharva ... LP
Warner, 1971. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A cool mixture of rock and electronics – a perfect example of the Beaver & Krause team at their best! The ensemble on this one is bigger than usual, and the players includes jazz musicians like Mike Bloomfield, Gerry Mulligan, and Howard Roberts – but Beaver & Krause still play a lot of moog, though, and the songs are pretty groovy – although a little short. Side 2 was recorded at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. Titles include "Soft/White", "Walkin By The River", "Walkin", "Nine Moons In Alaska", "Bright Shadows", and "Short Film For David".

Gaby Lita Bembo and Orchestre Stukas du ZaireKita Mata ABC ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the rawest and fieriest Congolese rumba ever waxed! Gaby Lita Bembo was one of the scene's most eccentric showmen – sporting outlandish outfits and dancing like a madman – but Orchestre Stukas had the attack to back it all up. The frantic rhythms provided the perfect foil for the extroverted guitar work of a succession of dynamic string mavericks – Samunga Tediangaye, Bongo Wende, and Kembo – who all soaked their wild, rhythmically thrilling leads in buckets of reverb. Lita's vocals were shadowed by exuberant unison harmonies, also drenched in otherworldly echo, for a dense, relentless sound. Tracks include "Idee Kono", "Toto Seya", "Lobelia", "Presidents", and "Odeyo". CD
