✨✧ Dam-FunkInvite The Light ... CD
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Dam Funk does it again – really blowing us away with his crispy fresh version of funk – one that's a perfect fusion of old school modes from the 70s and 80s, and some of the more cosmic touches of the current century! The approach uses lots of splash on the keyboards and beats – so that everything bristles with this electric energy – even the vocals, which have a way of settling down right next to everything else, but without any too-stiff vocoded modes. And Dam Funk doesn't just do it alone – but invites in some great help here – including Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg on rhymes, plus old school funk legends Leon Sylvers III and Junie Morrison. Titles include "Junie's Transmission", "Virtuous Progression", "Glyde 2Nyte", "OBE", "Missing U", "I'm Just Tryin To Survive", "The Hunt & Murder Of Lucifer", "Surveillance Escape", and "Somewhere Someday".

Jason AjemianFolklords ... LP
Delmark, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
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 "Material Girls" and "Freedom Is A Trail Of Tears". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric AlexanderReal Thing ... CD
High Note, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A real high point for tenorist Eric Alexander – whose recordings for High Note to date have all been very impressive – and they just keep getting better and better! He's working here with frequent collaborators Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – with whom Alexander has a tremendously intuitive rapport – the way this group goes from leisurely and melodic to fast, energetic play at the drop of a dime is really something else! Pat Martino plays guitar on a few tracks, and the titles includes "The Real Thing", "Pure Pat", "Summertime", "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", a very nice take on Roberto Menescal's Brazil classic "Little Boat", "For George And Trane", "Sleep Warm" and "The Chief".

Tony Allen with Afrobeat 2000NEPA – Never Expect Power Always ... LP
Celluloid/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Landmark material from the legendary Nigerian percussionist! NEPA is a great little album from Tony Allen – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a chunky groove that's very much in the style of his 70s Afro Funk work! The title track is one of Allen's best cuts ever – a really anthemic tune with a punchy hook that's as infectious as it is political – and other tracks on the set are equally nice, touched with some slight electronic bits, giving them a cool Celluloid Electric Africa vibe! Titles include the long numbers "When One Road Close" and "NEPA (Never Expect Power Always)", in regular and dub versions – plus the great closing track "Olokun". LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Arco TrioRather Odd ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2009. New Copy ... $9.99
Nicely angular work from drummer Tony Arco – a trio set that swings along with some really dynamic energy! Tony's got a way of leading a trio that puts his drums on an even par with the piano – played wonderfully in this case by Roberto Tarenzi, a player who almost has as much rhythmic pulse as Arco has melodic groove – working strongly together in a trio that also features bassist James Cammack. Old standards are opened up, pulled apart, and refitted as new rhythmic vehicles for jazz – and a few funky numbers slide into the mix with sounds that further freshen up the album. Titles include "Cissy Strut", "Skylark", "Resolution", "One Finger Snap", "Lullaby For The Loved One", and "Never Let Me Go". CD

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.

Beach Boys/Robert Mitchum/Cheers/Super StocksShut Down ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Good ... $0.99
A wonderful gem from the glory days of Capitol Records west coast rock and roll – and one of those cool little records in which the label moved past the concept of a lead artist, in order to showcase a great range of songs in a particular style! As you'd guess from the title and cover, the theme here is cars – particularly the hot rod craze of the early 60s – and the label brings together some great singles and lesser-known gems to support the style – plus two numbers by the Beach Boys too! The Wilson lads sparkle on "Shut Down" and "409" – and other great tracks include "Brontosaurus Stomp" by The Piltdown Men, "Chicken" by The Cheers, "Wide Track" by The Super Stocks, "Car Trouble" by The Eligibles, "Hot Rod Race" by Jimmy Dolan, and the great Robert Mitchum song "Ballad Of Thunder Road".

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... LP
Mercury, 1991. Very Good ... $34.99
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more.

BosqCelestial Strut ... CD
Ubiquity, 2015. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Bosq returns with even more brilliantly soulful sounds than on the debut – it's one of the most diverse dancefloor ready set of grooves on the Ubiquity label in years! Bosq's love for classic percussion heavy jams from across the globe is on full display – from Afro Soul, to Latin, to Brazilian and stateside styles – but the sound is ultimately very fresh, particularly in the way he blends so many influences into a distinctive whole. Bosq himself plays piano, Rhodes, organ, synth, bass and percussion – and the impressive guest roster of vocalists and instrumentalists includes funky soul diva Nicole Willis, Kaleta, Jimmy Riley, Angeline Morrison and more! Titles include "Cumbia En Bahia", "Bounce And Pull Up" with Evan Laflamme, ""Ella" feat Jesus Pagan, "Bad For Me" with Nicole Willis, "Change" feat Jimmy Riley, Take Over", "Pap The Price" and "Liars & Thieves Dub" with Kaleta, "Laughs On Me" with Angeline Morrison and the hard grooving title track.

Bossa TresBossa Tres Em Forma ... CD
Forma/Polygram (Japan), 1965. Used ... $16.99
Tremendous work from the legendary Bossa Tres – one of the coolest, sharpest combos of the 60s bossa generation – working here on a rare session from the legendary Forma label! The mighty Roberto Quartin produced the set – and gives it the sense of space you'll find on other killers on this rare imprint – but there's also a lot more drive and swing as well, thanks to the talents of the key combo – which is led by the bold keyboard strengths of Luiz Carlos Vinhas! The percussion is wonderful too – almost earthier than usual for a bossa group – with a slightly exotic swing that really takes off as the set grooves on – bringing in richer elements than you might expect. Vinhas plays a bit of Hammond, but most of the record has a rich acoustic piano sound in the lead – and titles include "Bottles", "Buzios", "Sambete No 4", "Imprevisto", and "Vivo Sonhando" CD

BossacucanovaUma Batida Diferente ... CD
Six Degrees, 2004. Used ... $4.99
You gotta hand it to these guys – releasing 2 albums at nearly the same time, yet somehow managing to come across sounding nice and fresh! Unlike the Ipanema Lounge album (issued weeks before this one), Uma Batida Diferente has a style that's much more in keeping with the group's earlier sessions for Six Degrees – an updating of classic bossa styles through clever use of modern rhythms and electronics – in a mode that really respects its roots, yet still offers up something new. As part of the old/new diad that drives the group, they're working here with classic bossa talents Marcos Valle, Orlandivo, and Roberto Menescal (father of one of the group's members) – plus more current artists Celso Fonseca and Zuco 103. Titles include "Bom Dia Rio", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Previsao", "Queria", "Just A Samba", "Bonita", and "Vai Levando". CD

Dave BrubeckJazz At Oberlin ... LP
Fantasy, 1953. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A classic album from Dave – recorded at Oberlin College, the mid-Ohio haven of bohemiana, and a growing hotbed of jazz activity centered around students in the college's conservatory of music. Dave and crew made the trip at the request of the kids – breaking from their mostly San Francisco-based recording career to cut what would end up becoming a very successful album in Dave's catalog, and begin a whole "at" or "goes to" series in his career. The group's the early quartet with Paul Desmond, Lloyd Davis, and Ron Crotty – and tunes include long and jamming versions of "The Way You Look Tonight", "How High The Moon", and "Stardust".

Rusty BryantRusty Bryant Plays Jazz ... LP
Dot, 1957. Very Good- ... $6.99
Seems funny that an album title would need to say "Rusty Bryant plays jazz", but at the time this one was cut, Rusty was thought more of as an R&B tenor honker, which to most jazzers was not the same thing. This set offers Rusty in a new light to the listeners of the 50s – playing originals and standards, in a few different groups with LA players like Gerry Wiggins, Red Callender, Howard Roberts, and Alvin Stoller. Tracks include "The Deacon", "Sonar", "48th Street Smile", "Boofus", and "Sooty" – all of which have a feel that's closer to Rusty's R&B work – plus mellow standards like "Easy Living", "That Old Black Magic", and "Thou Swell".

David ByrneKnee Plays (CD & DVD) ... CD
Nonesuch, 1985. Used CD & DVD ... $9.99
A really great record from David Byrne – songs and spoken bits that were originally designed to be used in Robert Wilson's Civil Wars – but which work great on their own! Byrne is completely charming in the spoken bits – with a sense of dry wit mixed with humanism, not that different from Laurie Anderson at the time – and instrumentation features a range of reeds and trumpets, gently cascading with the rhythms of the tunes – but in a relatively subtle way. Tracks include the wonderful "Tree" – aka "Today Is An Important Occasion" – plus "In The Upper Room", "Sound Of Business", "Admiral Perry", "I Bid You Goodnight", "In The Future", "Where The Sun Never Goes Down", "Theadora Is Dozing", "Social Studies", "Winter", and "The Jungle Book". This edition includes a DVD with a slide show of the performance that incorporates the music. CD

John CageRyoanji ... CD
Hat Now (Switzerland), 1985. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
The sound of silence, taken to a new level – as John Cage works beautifully here in an illustrative piece inspired by a rock garden in Kyoto! There's a very spacious quality to the piece – instrumentation that really leaves lots of space in between the notes – even though the piece is performed by a sextet that includes Eberhard Blum on flute, Ivewn Hausmann on trombone, Robert Black on bass, Gudrun Reschke on oboe, John Patrick Thomas on voice, and Jan Williams on percussion. The hour-long work builds beautifully – and has this evocative, Eastern-styled vibe that definitely lives up to its inspiration! CD
