✨✧ 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

Akoya Afrobeat EnsembleIntroducing The Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble ... CD
Afrobomb, 2004. Used ... $4.99
Afro Funk from the New York scene – served up by a combo who've taken Fela's inspiration to great new levels! The sound here definitely has roots in the grooves first grown in the 70s – heavy percussion, hard-rolling rhythms, and a brace of horns soaring over the top – tight on the head arrangements, but free to step out in jazzier moments in the longer space of the tracks! But Akoya also have a sound that's far more than just a copycat of the classic years – and they bring a sophisticated, contemporary groove to their music – one that's still mostly live and organic, but which also has a great sense of space and timing too. Vocal numbers include the political tracks "USA (Unilateral System Of Attack)" and "Star Wars" – and other titles include "Pelotera", "Mutiny", and "Akoya Chant". CD

Akoya Afrobeat EnsemblePDP ... CD
Afrobomb, 2008. Used ... $4.99
A full-length cooker from Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble – a group who normally manage to pack an album's worth of energy into a 12" single! Given that talent, you can imagine how much is going on here – thanks to some very long tracks that serve up a classic 70s-styled take on Afrobeat – one built up nicely from snapping percussion, scratchy guitar, snakey keyboards, blasting horns, and more – all played with razor-sharp precision, and topped with some very political vocals! These guys are definitely one of the leading contenders in the global Afrobeat underground – and this album's a great demonstration of their powers. Guests include Segun Ajayi on vocals and Cedric Im Brooks on tenor – and titles include "Oluya", "Wahala", "BFBF", "Je Je L'Aiye", and "Fela Dey". CD

Alma Afrobeat EnsembleIt's Time ... CD
Slow Walk (Spain), 2016. Used ... $4.99
Nice one from Barcelona's Alma Afrobeat Ensemble – with some righteous, timeless original tunes by the group – plus some stylistic boundary-busting collaborations with remix producers! The straighter Afrobeat numbers are pretty great – inspired by the legends of the style, blending western soul, funk and jazz with African rhythms and percussion – providing a danceable foundation for some pretty righteous lyrics – sung largely in English by Lagos-born vocalist Joe Psalmist. The remixes are fresh cuts, too, as opposed to re-workings of same album's other tracks – and they really bring in some diverse dancefloor style, too. Titles include "It's Time", "Live And Let's Live", "Shakedown", "Lost", "Siempre Prente (DJ Farmer Fiesta Remix)" and "Room Enough" featuring Ray Lugo (Terrifcos Remix) – plus "DWB Breakdown (DJ Quiet Cool Down Remix)", "Ain't It Time (DJ Phader Decale Remix)" and "Lost In Dub (Los Kalakos Dub Remix)".

✨✧ Beach Boys/Robert Mitchum/Cheers/Super StocksShut Down ... LP
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
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".

Robert ByrneElectric Hair ... LP
Evolution, Late 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the best versions of the Hair soundtrack you'll find on moog! Robert Byrne's cut some fine albums in his time, but on this little gem, he really grooves it hard with Galt MacDermot's funky score – using all the cool changes in the songs to riff out some great work on the moog. There's a great little combo backing him up, and they've got some tight rhythm that works well in juxtaposition to Byrne's moogy musings. Titles include "Hair", "Three-Five-Zero-Zero", "Easy To Be Hard", "Walking In Space", "Be In", "Frank Mills", and "Donna". 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 ... $11.99 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

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".
