Kuumba-Toudie HeathKawaida ... LP
Obe, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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

Dam-FunkInvite The Light (3LP set – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy 3LP ... $33.99 34.98
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". 3LP vinyl version includes 3 bonus tracks: "I'm Just Tryna Survive (Party Version)", "Kaint Let Em Change Me" and "The Acceptance".

David Murray with Saul WillamsBlues For Memo ... CD
Motema, 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
David Murray finds a fantastic new outlet for his many talents here – working with the younger songwriter Saul Williams – who delivers some fantastic lyrics throughout! Saul's as much a spoken word artist as he is a singer – and his passages on the album have this righteous power that takes us back to the hippest sort of music like this from the 70s – but also filtered through some of the lyrical possibilities of the better side of the hip hop generations, especially in the way the power of his messages come across! Murray is fantastic, too – really soulful and swinging, both on tenor and clarinet – and the songs often have Williams or Murray soloing first, then the other taking over. The rest of the group is pretty great as well – with Orrin Evans on piano, Craig Harris on trombone, Jaribu Shahid on bass, Nasheet Waits on drums, and a bit of Fender Rhodes from Jason Moran. Almost all tracks are originals – with titles that include "A Mirror Of Youth", "Kush", "Forever Brothers", "Music Of The Mind", "Deep In Me", "Positive Messages", "Obe", and "Citizens" – and the album also features a version of the Sun Ra tune "Enlightenment".

Peabo Bryson & Roberta FlackBorn To Love ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+ ... $4.99
The beautiful full scale duets set from Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack – a record that's no doubt defined by it's biggest hit – but the rest is just as great! Born To Love kicks off with "Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You" – a song that's doubtlessly one of the most inescapable slow dance classics ever – and if its ubiquity overshadows the rest of the record, that's not because it's any less excellent! Peabo's affectionate style is in top form here, and Roberta is such a perfect duet partner – with plenty of lead moments of her own. It definitely feels like a perfectly balanced partnership. The record's got some lovely slow jams on par with the aforementioned pop soul standard, plus some great ones that up the tempo a little bit. Other titles include "Blame It On Me", "Born To Love", "Heaven Above Me", "Comin' Alive", "Can We Find Love Again", "You're Looking Like Love To Me" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Annie Cohen Solal/Paul Goldberger/Robert GottliebNew York Mid Century – Post War Capitol Of Culture 1945 to 1965 (hardcover) ... Book
Thames & Hudson (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 35.00
A stunningly vivid portrait of New York in the postwar years – a time when the city's already-strong hold on American culture was taken to its apex – as the city became home to some of the most important artists, actors, writers, and creative forces of the generation! The book is filled with amazing photographs – hundreds of images, in both black and white and color, laid out alongside equally rich text, in three large sections that look at the visual arts, the performing arts, and architecture and design. Modern visual artists get especially strong placement in the book, as does the groundbreaking architecture in the city during the 50s – but there's also some great sections on dance, theater, and nightlife too – and the whole thing's more than large enough to cover everything at a reasonably strong level. The layout and design of the book are great – and the choice of images is superb – and the whole thing is super-heavy, hardcover, and a whopping 400 pages in all. Book

Robert Cohen-SolalLes Shadoks ... CD
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
Weird and wild sounds from the equally weird and wild French animated series at the end of the 60s – served up here by a classically-trained musician who also had a lot of experience with electro-acoustic sounds at the GRM studios! The music here is a dark mix of familiar elements – with use of cello, violin, clarinet, flute, bass, and drums – but often at a level that feels more electric than acoustic – mixed with keyboards and some guitar, yet also clearly processed a lot as part of the production! Away from the cartoon, the music feels very spooky and odd – really more in a Pierre Henry mode than you might expect, although a bit playful from time to time. Titles include "Theme Gibi Classique", "Cosmogol 999 Carburant De La Fusee Gibi", "Ambiance Nouilles", "Guerre Musicale", "La Planete A Poissons", "Faux Depart", "Fuite Des Shadoks", "La Machine A Pomper Dite Cosmopompe", and "Les Humeurs Geophysiques De La Plante Shadok".

Roberto Conrado/Antonio Scuderi/Piero MontanariBass Modulations (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A trio of sound library artists, all coming together to make one mighty groovy album – a set that's a bit jazzy overall, and filled with lots of funky touches as well! There's an excellent acoustic bassist on a number of tracks – grounding the music with a nicely deep tone, and even bowing his instrument at a few points – and the drummer and keyboardist are pretty great too! There's a flute player who steps into the mix at a few points – but most of the energy seems to come from the core trio, working together in ways that are nicely varied, and different than familiar small combo jazz. The whole thing reminds us of the 70s sound library work by Cabildos – and titles include "Zoo Sound", "Way On", "Puzzle", "Quit Hold", "Overtime", "Pledge", "Lay Out", "Dipper", and "Coagulations".

Robert Corff, Gourmet's Delight, Johnny & The TornGas-s-s-s ... LP
Air, 1970. Near Mint- ... $18.99
A groovy soundtrack for a Roger Corman film – and one that's filled with some offbeat rock tunes created for the movie! There's kind of an offbeat feel to most of the numbers – tunes that aren't really trying to get on the radio at all, or be hits of any kind – and which more seek to echo popular modes of the period, and then wrap them around some of the themes of the film. The most soundtrack-like numbers are the instrumental ones – which often break the rock format a bit, and get nice and interesting with the instrumentation. The core group on the set are supposedly The Fish – from Country Joe & The Fish – who sound especially nice on instrumental numbers that include "Cry A Little", "Juke Box Serenade", "Castles", "Bubble Gum Girl", and "The Pueblo Pool", billed to Johnny & The Tornados; appearing next to vocal numbers "This Is The Beginning", "I'm Looking For A World", and "World That We All Dreamed Of" by Robert Corff; and "First Time Last Time" and "Today Is Where" by The Gourmet's Delight.
