✨✧ Tony Conrad and FaustOutside The Dream Syndicate ... LP
Caroline (UK), 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever full album of music from Tony Conrad – issued in the early 70s after years of Conrad's secret input to the global avant garde – including some key years in New York, where he influenced John Cale and a generation of others who rose to greater fame! This set really has Conrad breaking out with a boldness right from the start – moving away from the arty underground, and trying to hit some more creative interplay with the more adventurous rock scene – which, in this case, includes strong work on the record by the young Faust – who turn out to be a perfect vehicle for Conrad's ideas of minimal sound progressions and tonal textures! Each side of the record features one long track – with heavy drums at the core, ala Faust – mixed with guitars, violin, and other waves of sound – almost in a pulsing space that recalls Cale's work with Terry Riley, or which is a more serious take on modes that Can was experimenting with too – although with a starkness and darkness that really lives up to the cover image. Titles include "The Side Of The Machine" and "The Side Of Man & Womankind". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Yusef LateefOutside Blues (aka Lost In Sound) ... LP
Trip, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Yusef Lateef's one and only album for the Charlie Parker label – cut during a period when he's been making real waves in the jazz scene with work on Prestige and Savoy! The set's a bit more straight ahead than some of Lateef's more exotic sides of the time – focusing on his work on tenor, and going for a soulful hardbop approach that relatively upbeat and swinging, with traces of the work that Lateef was doing in the Cannonball Adderley group of the time. Players on the album include Vincent Pitts on trumpet, John Horman on piano, Ray McKinny on bass, and either George Scott or Clifford Jarvis on drums – and all tunes save two are originals, with titles that include "Outside Blues", "Blue Rocky", "Introlude", "Train Stomp", and "Trudy's Delight". 2nd pressing of the album Lost In Sound – with a cover that's different than the original.

✨✧ Little Anthony & The ImperialsI'm On The Outside (Looking In) ... LP
Veep/DCP, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the nice albums that Little Anthony recorded after moving to Veep during the mid 60's. By this point, the group was recording a little bit more pop stuff than they used to on their old records, but their harmonies were still great, and they were also cutting a lot of other great original tracks that were written for them by Teddy Randazzo, who also produced and arranged. Cuts include "I'm On the Outside (Looking In)", "Please Go", "Our Song", and a remake of their classic "Tears On My Pillow". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MomentsNot On The Outside, But On The Inside, Strong! ... LP
Stang, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful! This is one of The Moments' best albums from the early 70s, and it's a masterpiece of east coast group soul in the best New Jersey tradition! The trio of Ray, Goodman, and Brown sing together with perfect harmonies, and the production has a raw edge that makes their voices sound even sweeter in contrast – that rough edge that really characterized east coast soul in the years before some of the bigger Philly productions started smoothing it out a bit. The record includes their big hit "Not On The Outside", plus "Hurts On Me, Baby", "Sunday", "Love On A Two Way Street", "You Make Me Feel Good", and "I'm So Lost". LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriUnder Fire ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Great work from Gato – filled with Latin rhythm influences forged on his Impulse sessions of the same time, plus some nice spiritual blowing in the Pharoah Sanders tradition in which he was linked in the immediate post-Coltrane years. Airto and Mtume are on percussion on most tracks, and Lonnie Liston Smith plays some pretty outside piano on the set. All tracks are long, and titles include "El Parana", "Antonico", "El Sertao", and "Maria Domingas". LP, Vinyl record album

Joanne BrackeenPrism ... LP
Choice, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Joanne Brackeen's at the top of her game here – working in a unique set of duets with bassist Eddie Gomez – at a level that matches the fire and fury of any of her work with a larger group! Brackeen's got this tremendous command of the keyboard right from the start – a wide sweep that has the notes cascading wonderfully – in rich melodies with a very deep sound, but still lots of sharp edges, and this sense of freedom that makes you think she's always just about to go outside – before pulling it back a bit. Gomez is sublime, as always – and his bass work adapts perfectly to each individual moment – stating itself strongly, but never in a way that's gimmicky at all – and always balanced between a sense of melody and timekeeping too. Titles include "Lost Or Found", "International Festival", "Evanescent", "If You Dare", and "Prism". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Charles & Betty CarterRay Charles & Betty Carter ... LP
ABC, 1961. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful. Betty's high voice works well with Ray's raspy low one – especially on their classic duet version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Other tracks include "For All We Know", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "Side By Side", and "You & I". LP, Vinyl record album

CircleCircle 1 – Live In German Concert ... LP
Sony (Japan), 1971. Near Mint- ... $38.99
One of the rare few albums recorded by the short-lived, but important avant group Circle – a masterful meeting of talents that featured Anthony Braxton on reeds, Chick Corea on piano, David Holland on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums – plus all players on assorted percussion! The feel here is in a very AACM mode – organically experimental with space and sound texture, and not nearly as academic as some of Corea's outside trio material from the same period. Like most of the group's other recordings, this one is made up of 2 longer pieces: "Medley: Toy Room/O & A" and "There Is No Greater Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very nice Japanese pressing, with insert!)

John ColtraneLove Supreme ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was already breaking down plenty of boundaries before Love Supreme – but he knocked it out of the park for the album – which is a full-length suite of spiritual expression, one that gives even greater focus and message to Coltrane's long-spiralling style of soloing on the tenor sax! The group here is the classic quartet – McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – taking Trane up to the heavens on waves of modal energy, but also holding his spirit closer to the planet than on some of later, more outside performances. There's a slight bit of vocalization on the record – that chanted energy that imbues the set with so much love – and movements include "Acknowledgement", "Resolution", "Pursuance", and "Psalm". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing on MCA/Impulse in a non gatefold cover, with some edge wear.)

Kenny CoxIntroducing Kenny Cox & the Contemporary Jazz Quartet ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good+ ... $24.99
An overlooked late 60s treasure on Blue Note – one of the few new groups to work on the label at the time, and an up-and-coming modern combo from Detroit! The album's quite unique for a number of reasons – not just because the group was a little-known new signing to the label, but also because the work is quite far-reaching at times – some of the most free-thinking jazz recorded for Blue Note during the time, with a sense of boldness that almost stretches back to Jackie McLean's first few records of the new thing years, or a sense of lyrical invention that's a bit like Wayne Shorter when he made a shift towards the outside. Some numbers are awash in fast colors and changes, while others are a bit more in the pocket, with echoes of soul jazz – but the whole thing's incredibly fresh and free, a wonderful little record that only gets better and better over the years! The group features pianist Kenny Cox as the leader, plus Charles Moore on trumpet, Leon Henderson on tenor, Ron Brooks on bass, and Danny Spencer on drums. Titles include "Mystique", "You", "Trance Dance", "Eclipse", and "Number Four". LP, Vinyl record album

Randy CrawfordNightline ... LP
Warner, 1983. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A great crossover moment for Randy Crawford – a set that's filled with catchy little numbers that really helped to break her big to a larger audience, yet still with all the jazzy class of her earlier records too! Linda and Cecil Womack contributed a number of excellent songs to the set, and these balance out the soul component nicely – rounding things out alongside a few of the more crossover tracks. Backings are polished, but still never too clunky or commercial – leaving lots of room for those classic Crawford vocals – and titles include "Nightline", "Living On The Outside", "The Bottom Line", "In Real Life", "Happy Feet", "Lift Me Up", and "Ain't No Foolin". LP, Vinyl record album

Elton Dean's NinesenseOh! For The Edge ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1976. Near Mint- ... $49.99
There's definitely an edge here to the music – but one that's a bit different than that of some of Elton Dean's contemporaries in the 70s British scene! Dean brings a lot more swing and soul to this record than you might expect – working with a large group, but never letting the players get totally outside – which is a real change from some of the more freely improvising UK ensembles of the period. Dean's own work on alto and saxello are totally great – as are the core rhythms of the group, which come from Keith Tippett on piano, Harry Miller on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums. But we're also plenty happy to hear Alan Skidmore on tenor, Harry Beckett and Mark Charig on trumpets, and Nick Evans on trombone. The recording has a very good "roomy" sound to it that gives it a darker edge than some of the other Ogun recordings from the time – and tracks include "Fall In Free", "Dance", "Friday Night Blues", and "Prayer For Jesus".

Roland KirkRip, Rig & Panic (non-gatefold pressing) ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good ... $14.99
Mindblowing work from Roland Kirk – a record that really pushes the boundaries of his music even farther than some of his earlier, and excellent, albums for the Mercury label! Kirk's really stretching out here – finding a space in jazz that's uniquely his own – modern, yet playful – creative, yet never overindulgent – and perfectly balanced to find a whole new sound of soul for the 60s! Things never get too far outside, but Kirk's reedlines are always breaking out into fresh territory – incredible tenor parts, and also some amazing work on manzello and stritch too, both lesser-known reed instruments that Roland employs to incredible ends. Other group members fit his vibe perfectly – Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – each stepping quickly to catch the energy of each new twist and turn in Kirk's music. Titles include the sublime "From Bechet Byas & Fats" – plus "No Tonic Pres", "Rip Rig & Panic", "Mystical Dream", "Black Diamond", and "Slippery Hippery Flippery". This copy doesn't have the gatefold cover, but it's still got a nice textured one, and it's a second pressing from the 60's! LP, Vinyl record album

Liquid Idiot/Idiot OrchestraLiquid Idiot/Idiot Orchestra ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1978/1980. Near Mint- (reissue)... $11.99
Pre-Liquid Liquid work from Richard McGuire – a pair of different groups that both have a much more outside vibe than his more famous material! The Liquid Idiot tracks are from 1978, and have a definite No Wave vibe – almost improvised jazz at times, and definitely fairly avant – with instrumentation that is heavy on guitar, plus bits of organ, drums, saxes, and clarinet – all used together in modes that are cyclic, but not nearly as funky as later Liquid Liquid material. The Idiot Orchestra material is a bit more fully formed, but still pretty avant – kind of a larger jazz ensemble working together in unison, but moving to relatively free territory as well – an aspect that's emphasized by the rougher qualities of the production style, which is very moody. Titles include "Medium Egg", "Scotty Laughs", "Times When I Go", "Yeah I Know", "Brown Paper Suit", "Duets", "Jungle", "Big City", and "Appolo Thinner". LP, Vinyl record album

Kathy MathisKatt Walk ... LP
Tabu, 1987. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An overlooked 80s soul gem from Kathy Mathis – a set that's got the nicely bouncy groove we love so much in Tabu Records set from the time, and a quality level that's even deeper than the usual records we know from the label! Kathy's one of those great 80s singers who really knows how to sing with a groove – inflecting her tones alongside the rhythms, yet also finding a way to step outside them as well – bringing in a balance that shows a lot more care with the set than you might expect. Mathis also speaks at a few points on the record – in this badass way that really underscores the tone set by the groove – and titles include "Automatic Stop & Go", "Crunch", "Katt Walk", "Baby I'm Hooked", "Now That You're Gone", "The Olive Branch", "Late Night Hour", and "Straight From The Hearts".

Riverside, 1962. Very Good+ ... $199.99
With grooves this great, the house must have been full – and the album's a gem of an early live date by Wes Montgomery, recorded in Berkeley with a quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums! The tunes have a nicely cooking feel throughout – even when they're more gentle ones – and the record's a good reminder that outside of the studio, Wes could sometimes play with a bit more force on the strings – raspily hitting notes that explode off the guitar with tremendous precision and a good deel of feeling. Titles include the Montgomery originals "Full House", "SOS", and "Cariba", plus the tunes"Blue N Boogie" and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". LP, Vinyl record album

David MurrayLive At Sweet Basil Vol 1 ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A really bold step forward for David Murray – a seminal live recording that features one of the hippest big bands you'll ever hope to find! Murray really uses the date as a chance to express the full range of his musical talents – and often shows modes that are more traditional than you might expect, yet which are always touched with an undercurrent of modernism! The musical palette here is quite different than either the outside or inside sessions recorded by Murray with a small group at the time – and he really reaches back through a rich history of jazz in the performance, and updates it wonderfully with help from players who include Baikida Carroll on trumpet, Olu Dara on cornet, Craig Harris on trombone, Vincent Chaney on French horn, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Rod Williams on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Butch Morris conducts – and titles on this first volume include "Lovers", "Bechet's Bounce", "Silence", and "Duet For Big Band". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny PhillipsMy Black Flower ... LP
Muse, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Although Sonny Phillips was one of the funky organ players to record for Prestige during the classic jazz funk years, by the time of this recording, he'd emerged as a more spiritual talent, with a looser, freer approach, and a much more open-ended vibe. This 1976 session is a good example of that – as it moves beyond simple funky jazz, into a realm that shows Phillips picking up a lot of outside influences, and going for a style that was mellower, more laidback, and a bit more cosmic – while still hitting some nice funky moments. The set was recorded by Houston Person, and features Phillips on piano and organ, with backing by Ben Dixon, Jimmy Ponder, and Ralph Dorsey. Titles include "Salaam 7", "Goin Home", "My Black Flower", and "Jalal". LP, Vinyl record album

Bud PowellBud Powell In Paris ... LP
Reprise, 1964. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A surprising Bud Powell album for Reprise Records – and one of the label's hippest jazz titles ever! When Frank Sinatra first started up the Reprise imprint, he let Duke Ellington do a bit of A&R for the jazz division – and one of the first things Ellington did was capture the great Bud Powell in his then-local setting of Paris – in this rough edgey session that turned out to be one of Powell's last albums, and one of his best from the 60s. The record is nothing fancy on the outside – just simple piano trio versions of jazz standards like "Parisian Thoroughfare", "I Can't Get Started", "Jordu", and "Dear Old Stockholm" – but Powell's dark genius turns the tracks into jagged little razors, cutting with an emotional depth that's quite surprising. Duke Ellington produced – and trio members include Gilbert Rovere on bass and Carl Fields on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Sam RiversCrosscurrent – Live At Jazz Unite ... LP
Marge (France), 1981. Near Mint- ... $28.99
Really great work from Sam Rivers – an album that's a bit more inside than some of his other European recordings of the period, but in a really great way that makes it a decided standout in Sam's career! Rivers is playing a bevy of heavy horns here – flute, tenor, soprano sax, and even a bit of piano – and the group has some good electricity in the rhythms, thanks to the guitar of Jerry Byrd and electric bass of Rael Wesley Grant. But the really compelling element is the drums of Steve Ellington – a surprisingly funky player at points, giving some of the cuts here a damn heavy groove, which Sam matches with some of his tightest, most soulful horn work. A few cuts definitely go outside, and unlock the freer side of Rivers – especially the piano moments – and titles include "Swirl", "Rapture", "Crosscurrent", "Sunbeams", "Breeze", "Eddy", and "Serenity".

An expansive set of post-Coltrane jazz from bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz and a large ensemble of Argentinian players that includes Fernando Gelbard on piano and flute, Chivo Borrarro on tenor, and Santiago Giacobbe on organ. The style of the album shifts from track to track – and over the course of the album's 4 long original tunes, the group sometimes veers outside, sometimes goes for a freer grooving mode, and sometimes brings in a chorus with a slightly ambitious feel. Titles include "Relatos", "Amor Buenos Aires", "Bronca Buenos Aires", and "La Cuidad Vida". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaMr Watermelon Man – La Bamba ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Mongo Santamaria at the height of his Latin Soul years – working on a cool Columbia session titled after an earlier hit, but served up with his new lean sound of the late 60s! The album's got that perfect Santamaria combo from the time – a group that features trumpet and these wonderfully sharp arrangements from the great Marty Sheller – plus very smoking reed work from a young Hubert Laws, wailing away on flute and tenor, and Bobby Capers on alto and baritone – both players who mix jazz and soul instrumental modes, to bring a hell of a lot of feeling to the overall sound of the band – in ways that really get past more familiar use of trumpet or trombone in other Latin combos. The band grooves nicely on original material like "Streak O Lean", "Ricky Tick", "Do It To It", "Fatback", "Coconut Milk", and "Jose Outside" – and they also reprise Mongo's big hit "Watermelon Man".

KonradEvil ... LP
Ethereal Sequence, Early 80s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $14.99
Loner electro pop weirdness from the early 80s! Konrad's pointing at us on the cover, and with his cloak and neatly-trimmed beard, he looks like a young Anton LaVey, but the sound isn't scary at all. It's a mix of oddball outsider synth pop and weird story songs and instrumentals that's actually pretty great. Kinda crazy, but really cool! Konrad does everything – lo-fi synth and drum programming, guitar and bass, violin and vocals – and he's a good musician. One of the more fascinating (and listenable!) private press discoveries we've come across. Includes "It's Only A Matrix", "Music Scientist", "Don't Want No Police", "Alien", "My Girl Likes To Buy", "One Way Motorcycle Ride", "DMZ Bolero (Instrumental)", "People", "Keep On Playin' That Jazz" and more.
