Little Anthony & The ImperialsI'm On The Outside (Looking In) ... LP
DCP/Veep, 1966. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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
(Mono DCP pressing with deep groove.)

MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Very Good- ... $6.99
Really tremendous work from Mandrill – an instant funky classic, and a set that has the group furthering the sublime sound they crafted on their seminal Composite Truth! The record has all these wonderful twists and turns – not just the usual 70s funky styles, but inflections from a globe's worth of influences – all filtered down and used here in fresh new ways to really keep the sound interesting – with a tightness that's never slick, and which instead has this really visionary approach that may well top some of Mandrill's higher-charting contemporaries! Instrumentation has plenty of jazz inflections, which really keeps things interesting – and the percussion has so many different styles going on, it's hard to keep track! Titles include the massive sample cut "Fat City Strut" – plus "Never Die", "Two Sisters Of Mystery", "She Ain't Lookin Too Tough", "Interlude", "Mango Meat", "Afrikus Retrospectus", and "Aspiration Flame". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet. Cover has residue along the opening.)

✨✧ Glenn LewisWorld Outside My Window ... LP
Epic, 2002. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweetly soulful debut from Glenn Lewis – a modern singer with a classic approach to vocals, dipped heavily in the tradition of Stevie Wonder, especially on his early 70s masterpieces, produced here with a bit of the current vocal processing approach used in the NuSoul era. Andre Harris co-wrote and produced a number of the songs – but as with D'Angelo and some of his more understated contemporaries, the real strength of the record lies in Lewis' vocals, as they snake their way through a sensuous batch of tunes that includes "Simple Things", "Beautiful Eyes", "Something To See", "This Love", "Dream", "Is It True", "Never Too Late", and "Take Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gato BarbieriUnder Fire ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

Steve BeresfordEleven Songs For Doris Day (10 inch LP) ... LP
Chabada (France), 1985. Near Mint- ... $6.99
We love these Chabada 10 inches! A nice series that allowed many of the players on the British avant jazz scene an outlet to explore themes outside the free improv scene, this one finds pianist Steve Beresford paying tribute to Doris Day and the music featured in her films, along with reedist Tony Coe and drummer Terry Day. Beresford breaks out his tuba – okay, it's a euphonium – and melodica, and there's vocals by Deb'bora on many of the tracks. Includes "Que Sera, Sera", "It's Magic", "Serenade in Blue", "Sentimental Journey" & "I'm Beginning to See the Light" LP, Vinyl record album

BerioSinfonia – Swingle Singers/Berio/NY Philharmonic ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
The original recording of Berio's dark vocal piece Sinfonia, and one of the pivotal moments when the Swingle Singers switched from doing jazzy versions of classical tunes to work that was more avant garde. Their high level of talent is apparent in this recording, and they give Berio's work a nice haunting sound, with a feel that's even spookier because you sort of recognize them as a pop group, but one that's gone a little crazy here. Cool stuff, and with a good set of notes. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a tape along the seams and rips outside and inside the gatefold from the removal of old stickers.)

Ray Charles & Betty CarterRay Charles & Betty Carter ... LP
ABC, 1961. Very Good+ ... $13.99
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
(Heavy black label pressing.)

Epic, 1986. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Hideaway makes a move towards more delicate synth soul for Clarke – who assembles an impressive guest list that includes Stanley Jordan, Herbie Hancock and Stewart Copeland. Titles include a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed", plus "My Love, Her Inspiration", "Where Do We Go", "Old Friends" and "When It's Cold Outside". LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneOm ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio – initially in the spirit of Love Supreme, but much sharper-edged and unbridled overall – as if the meditative spirit of the previous recording had unlocked a sense of freedom that refused to be tied down to simple structures! The group is great – and features Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – plus a bit of flute and percussion from Joe Brazil. The playing is much freer than on other albums of the time, but also has some introspective spiritual moments – clearly inspired by the Love Supreme recording, but taken a shade outside as well! LP, Vinyl record album

Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic (Buddah pressing) ... LP
Buddah, 1972. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Chick Corea/David Holland/Barry AltschulARC (German pressing) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1971. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Some of the most outside work ever recorded by Chick Corea – a great session from the post-Circle trio that included Barry Altschul on percussion and Dave Holland on bass! The sound here is in a vast space of dark corners, sharp edges, and some slightly warmer moments – similar to some of Chick's other work as a leader before this album, but a bit more stark overall. Although listed with writing credits, most titles have a strongly improvised feel – quite free, especially the piano parts! Titles include "Ballad For Tillie", "Nefertitti", "Vedana", "Thanatos", and "Games". LP, Vinyl record album

Dalton & DubarriSuccess & Failure ... LP
ABC, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Pretty compelling stuff from Gary Dalton and Kent Dubarri – an LA-based team with a soulful rock sound, sort of in the mode of funkier bits on records by the likes of Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, and other 70s crossover acts. The record's a nice one if you dig that AOR Free Soul sound – and the best cuts mix tight studio playing with some great 70s AM radio songwriting. The standout cut for DGA customers is "Pretty Funky" – which actually is nice and funky in parts, and has some good sample changes. "I'm Just a Rock N Roller" has a nice open drum break, made famous by DJ Krush. Other tracks include "Hookers' Dolls", "Slow Motion Man", "Daddy's Never Know", "Joy Of Comin' Home", and "Cold Outside Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy GiuffreFree Fall ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $29.99
An incredible batch of freely crafted tracks from Jimmy Giuffre's legendary early 60s trio! The group features Steve Swallow on bass and Paul Bley on piano, and the two young modernists were a perfect match of Giuffre's ever-developing ideas of freedom and harmony. The music is beautiful – with a sound that's like nothing else we can describe, and an approach that's free floating (or free falling), but never directionless, and never overindulgent. Perfectly measured, with a strong sense of melody and rhythm, even amidst the more outside moments. Titles include "Propulsion", "Threewe", "Dichotomy", "Man Alone", and "Divided Man".

Keep Movin' On falls a little outside his classic work, but it's aged well, and is a great batch of Haggard originals with a running ramblin' theme. Tracks include "Movin' On", "Life's Like Poetry", "September In Miami", "Here In Frisco", "Always Wanting You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Slide Hampton OctetSomethin' Sanctified ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good ... $9.99
Sanctified, indeed – and just the kind of record to show why Slide Hampton was unlike any of his trombone-playing contemporaries! The set's got a tightness and punch that's really unique – not the compact quality of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding, but also not the hardbop of Curtis Fuller either – instead king of a rousing approach to jazz trombone that really makes Hampton the kind of the soul jazz approach to the instrument! Slide's working here with a cool octet that has the focus of a group half their size – a really well-chosen lineup of young, hip players that includes George Coleman on tenor sax, Hobart Dotson and Richard Williams on trumpets, Larry Ridley on bass, and additional trombone from a y oung Charles Greenlee! Titles include "El Sino", "Ow", "Milestones", and the stormin' title cut "Somethin Sanctified". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew HillComplete Blue Note Andrew Hill Sessions 1963 to 1966 (10 LP set) ... LP
Mosaic/Blue Note, 1960s. Near Mint- 10LPs ... $399.99
Remarkable modern jazz, from one of the most unique voices in the genre! Hill's piano work and compositions fall into a category of their own, working outside the limits of predominant bop sound, but not quite falling into the world of free jazz that rules the avant scene. This outstanding Mosaic box collects his seminal 60s recordings, comprising of the LPs Black Fire, Smokestack, Judgment, Point Of Departure, Andrew!, One For One, and Compulsion, plus plenty of alternate takes and some material that was issued under Sam Rivers name on the LP Involution. Sidemen include Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Kenny Dorham, Eric Dolphy, John Gilmore, Freddie Hubbard, Sam Rivers, Richard Davis, Cecil McBee, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Tony Williams and Joe Chambers. There's 52 tracks in all, spread out over 7 CDs, with titles that include "Land Of Nod", "Black Fire", "McNeil Island", "Tired Trade",Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Smokestack", "Ode To Von", "The Day After", "Verne", "Not So", "Flea Flop", "Siete Ocho", "Yokada, Yokada", "Reconciliation", "New Monastary", "Flight 19", "Spectrum", "Symmetry", "The Griots", "Duplicity", "Le Serpenmt Qui Danse", "Euterpe", "Erato", "Roots 'n Herbs", "Compulsion", "Premonition", "Violence" and "Desire".

Keith JarrettShades ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter than Jarrett's excellent Death & The Flower set – as the tunes have a highly rhythmic component, and make good use of the extra percussion to create a flowing, organic groove. There's still a nice loose feel overall, though – almost a take on the loft jazz sound, especially at the moments when Jarrett goes a bit outside on piano. Titles include "Shades Of Jazz", "Southern Smiles", "Rose Petals", and "Diatribe". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roland KirkRip, Rig & Panic (gatefold) ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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 LP, like most of the Limelight ones from this era, comes with a cool heavy gatefold, and an excellent little book on the inside with colorful geometric shapes and stuff. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing in the extravagant gatefold cover.)

Little Anthony & The ImperialsLittle Anthony & The Imperials (Sunset) ... LP
Sunset, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work from the 60s originally released on the Veep, DCP or United Artists labels, collected here for the Liberty subsidiary Sunset. Teddy Randazzo handled the arrangements and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. 10 tracks in all, including "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Take Me Back", "Better Use Your Head", "The Wonder Of It All", "Reputation", "You Better Take It Easy Baby", "Please Go" and "Goin' Out Of My Head".

M'BoomRe:Percussion (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Strata East/Baystate (Japan), 1973. Near Mint- ... $99.99
A highly percussive little album – and the first-ever appearance of the M'Boom ensemble on record! You might know the group from their later fame under the guidance of Max Roach, but here the combo is a much more equally-assembled cast of players – featuring not just Roach, but percussionists Roy Brooks, Joe Chambers, Omar Clay, Freddie Waits, Richard Pablo Landrum, and Warren Smith! Given that lineup, you've got a group that represents the forefront of jazz and creative percussion work at the start of the 70s – and added to the mix is the ultimate freedom allowed by the Strata East label – which has the group really stretching out in these amazing ways! Things are never too free or outside, and there's always a nicely spiritual core to the record – but there is an incredible shift between percussive rhythms and melody – on instrumentation that includes vibes, tympani, xylophone, marimba, drums, and plenty of percussion – plus even and Indian flute too. And maybe coolest of all, there's even some saw, played by Omar Clay and Roy Brooks – used n a weird way that almost sounds electronic! Titles include "Giselle Suite" and "Jihad Est Mort". LP, Vinyl record album

David MurrayLive At Sweet Basil Vol 1 ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

Takoma, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary early 60s Takoma record by foremost fingerstyle folk guitar pioneer John Fahey, with his trademark expansions on traditional influences, and all around otherworldly approach to six strings! This was essentially Fahey's second proper LP (hence the Vol 2 designation in the title) and you can hear it's profound influence in latter day outsider folk AN more broadly popular guitarists, from folk, to blues, rock and even jazz – hugely important work! 12 tracks in all: "John Henry Variations", "The Downfall Of The Adelphi Rolling Grist Mill", "Take A Look At That Baby", "Dance Of The Inhabitants Of The Palace Of King Phillip XIV", "America", "Episcopal Hymn", "Sunflower River Blues", "When The Springtime Comes Again", "Stomping Tonight On The Pennsylvania/Alabama Border", "On The Beach At Waikiki" and "Spanish Dance".
