New Bill ColemanComplete Philips Recordings ... CD
Universal (France), 1951/1952. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing postwar work from trumpeter Bill Coleman – an American player who made his home in France for many years, and who became one of the key ex-patriots on the Paris scene! Coleman's style is relatively trad, but in the years after the war he opened up with a groove that had some occasional bop inflections mixed in with mainstream swing – modern in its own way, especially in the right group context. This overstuffed 2CD set features 38 recordings done by Coleman in the years 1951 and 1952 – 6 from a studio session, 25 more from a concert at La Salle Pleyel, and 7 more previously unreleased alternate takes from the studio set! Players on the tracks include the great Guy Lafitte on both clarinet and tenor, plus Buddy Banks on bass, Art Simmons on piano, Zutty Singleton on drums, Jay Cameron on alto, and some occasional vocals from Miriam Burton. Titles include "The Blues Jumped Up & Got Me", "Jumpin At The Pleyel", "Come On A My House", "Tenderly", "Knucklehead", "Perdido", "Trombone Blues", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Indiana", "Out Of Nowhere", "Chinatown", and "Red Top". First CD reissue of this material, too! CD

New Klaus DoldingerEarly Doldinger – The Complete Philips Sessions (4 CD set) ... CD
Universal (Germany), Mid 60s. Used 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the most soulful jazz recorded in Europe during the 1960s – and the complete Philips recordings of German saxophonist Klaus Doldinger! Doldinger's probably best remembered for the more dynamic fusion he cut with the Passport group in the 70s, but back in his early years he was full on soul jazz player, steeped in the tradition of Gene Ammons, Lou Donaldson, Sonny Stitt, and others before him – all players that we'd easily rank Doldinger with during these years, given the ultra-high level of his work for Philips! But given his German orientation, Doldinger also picked up on some of the freer influences that were running around the European scene of the 60s – and the tracks here don't just sparkle with American soul jazz sounds, but also show a bit of Brazilian and more progressive jazz influences as well. And alongside Doldinger's tremendous tenor and soprano sax, the recordings here are equally noteworthy for the organ lines of Ingrfried Hoffmann – an ultra-cool player on the Hammond, with the mixture of rhythmic energy and playfulness you might find in the work of Jack McDuff for Prestige at the same time! Doldinger and Hoffmann cook tremendously throughout – so much so, you can easily forget their country of origin, and just put these sides on equally next to your favorites from Prestige or Cadet. 4CD package features material from 4 full albums, plus rare singles – and also includes a full CD of other rare Doldinger recordings from the same time! Tremendous stuff throughout, and easily one of the greatest discoveries in jazz you may make this year. 51 tracks in all – with titles that include "Delilah", "Signal", "Blues For George", "Solar", "Viva Brasilia", "Waltz Of The Jive Cats", "Blue Note Samba", "Negra Sin Sandalia", "Shakin The Blues", "Just A Little Bit Of Soul", "Run Baby Run", "Quartenwalzer", "Praeludium No 3", "That Bluesy Sound", "Watch It", "Pavana The Earl Of Salisbury", "Midnight Session", and "Joe's Blues".

Jorge BenAfrica Brasil (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1976. Used ... $29.99
A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk track "Ponta De Lanca", plus loads of other goodies like "O Filosofo", "Xica Da Silva", "A Historia De Jorge", and a great remake of "Taj Mahal" – probably his greatest cut ever. Great all the way through – and is a perfect introduction to Jorge Ben if you don't know his work, and an essential addition to your collection if you do! CD

Jimmy CampbellJimmy Campbell's Album ... CD
Philips/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
Beautifully sensitive work from Jimmy Campbell – a record with a lot more depth than you might guess from the gimmicky image on the cover! Campbell returns here to spare, fragile territory throughout – working with instrumentation that's mostly just acoustic guitar and a bit of rhythm, plus occasional piano and organ – all in a style that reminds us of Biff Rose at some of his best late 60s moments, which is a pretty good comparison – considering Jimmy's uniquely personal style of singing, and his personally poetic choice of lyrical topics! The album's a real overlooked gem – the kind of singer-songwriter treasure that's arguably more suited to a hip audience these days than it might have been when first released back in the early 70s. Titles include "April Morning", "Paris You're In Paris", "Salvation Army Citadel", "By The Light Of A Lamp", "Maudie", "Baby Walk Out With Your Darling Man", "It Never Rains But It Pours", and "When You're Coming Home".

Paco De LuciaEn Vivo Desde Teatro Real ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A strong live set from the great Paco DeLucia – one that has his sublime acoustic guitar sounds really ringing out in the large space of a theater – which creates a slightly different vibe than some of his more close-up studio records of the 70s! DeLucia is extremely commanding in this space – and seems to reach out with even more majesty than ever – incredibly deft work on the strings of the guitar, full of fire and feeling – on a set of original numbers that reference tradition, then completely dismantle it as well. Ramon De Algeciras joins on a bit of second guitar, and titles include "Solea", "Fandangos", "Rumba", "Guajiras", "Alegrias", and "Tarantas". CD

Eumir DeodatoInutil Paisagem (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Beautiful airy bossa! This album's a 1964 session of straight piano bossa tracks by Deodato, with production by Roberto Quartin – and a sound that's a lot more mellow and fragile than his other records from the time! Deodato is amazingly restrained in his playing, and sticks to only piano – with backing that is extremely light and subtle. Roberto Quartin was the artistic director on the session, and the album includes a lot of the same whimsical touches he brought to his work on the Forma and Quartin labels. The set's filled with loads of great tracks like "Insensatez", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Samba Do Aviao", and "Amor Em Paz". CD

Neyde Fraga with Walter WanderleyBalancando (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $32.99
A really wonderful set of bossa nova vocals – one that features singer Neyde Fraga working with the keyboard talents of the great Walter Wanderley! Walter later cut a famous record for Verve with Astrud Gilberto – but this sweet little set is a real prequel to that album, and features Wanderley trying out a whole host of wonderful grooves with Fraga – almost all of which feature his sparkling Hammond organ in the lead! Fraga's a singer with a bit more punch than Astrud at times, which works great for Walter's jazzy style – and the set's filled with bubbling groovers that include "Diz Que Fui Por Ai", "Doce Amor", "Samba No Balanco", "Questao De Moral", "Balanco Do Mar", "Sambou Sambou", and "Amanhecendo".

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera ... CD
Philips (France), 1979. Used ... $8.99
A great little album from Serge – possibly his last truly genius record, and one with a very unusual twist! The album was recorded in Jamaica with production from Sly & Robbie – very much in the late 70s, big-business reggae mode – but done with Serge's usual flair for the lyric. The album's not really a reggae album – more a set of dubby tracks that have a similar feel to some of Serge's other backings during the 70s, with whispered sexy lyrics over the top. The record shouldn't work, but it does – and picks up a sound that's similar to Serge's work on the excellent album L'Homme A Tete Chou! Titles include "Relax Baby Be Cool", "Daisy Temple", "Javanaise Remake", "Pas Long Feu", and "Marilou Reggae Dub". CD

Serge GainsbourgHistoire De Melody Nelson (deluxe edition) ... CD
Philips/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 17.98
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's been sampled countless times over the years, and which has gotten the album continuous play on both sides of the Atlantic for many many years. The mighty Jean-Claude Vannier handles the arrangements, and Serge mutters the lyrics over the top, in a raspy loud whisper – while the funky rhythms dart in and out of odd washes of sound, and unusual eerie sounds. There's a very strong soundtrack feel to the album, as waves of music envelop the lyrics – tripped out in funky beats that have become legendary over the years, thanks to some very famous samples! Titles include "En Melody", "Cargo Culte", "Ballade De Melody Nelson", "Valse De Melody", "Ah! Melody", and "L'Hotel Particulier". Wonderful US version too – with a 40 page deluxe booklet that features extensive notes on the album – and a 1971 interview with Gainsbourg! CD

Serge GainsbourgL'Essential Des Albums Studio – 14 Albums Originaux 1958 to 1987 (12 CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 12CD ... $52.99
Amazing music – at an equally amazing price! The set features every studio album ever recorded by Serge Gainsbourg – monumental sounds that completely transformed the world of French music in the 60s and 70s, and have gone on to have a global impact well into the 21st Century! The sounds here are amazing right from the start – a mix of jazz, Latin, and other hip modes – all set to playfully sinister lyrics by Serge – which get even better as the 60s move on, and Gainsbourg dips into fuzz, funk, and other amazing elements to push out some far frontiers in his music! The 70s sees some great electronics, classic collaborations with Sly & Robbie, and gives way to some surprisingly great 80s material towards the end of Serge's too-short career. Box features 14 albums on 12 CDs – with records that include Du Chant A La Une, No 2, L'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg, No 4, Gainsbourg Percussions, Initials BB, Jane Birkin/Serge Gainsbourg, Histoire De Melody Nelson, Vu De L'Exterieur, L'Homme A Tete De Chou, Aux Armes Et Caetera, Mauvaises Nouvelles Des Etoiles, Love On The Beat, and You're Under Arrest.

Serge GainsbourgTenue De Soiree ... CD
Philips/Music Box (France), 1986. New Copy ... $11.99
An overlooked Serge Gainsbourg soundtrack from the 80s – surprisingly well-done, and at a level that both reflects Serge's earlier styles and a much deeper ear for film scoring! There's a main theme that's delivered with this beautifully echoey piano line – sometimes playful, sometimes somber – almost like a melody from a Francis Lai film score – and balanced with some more stylized 80s elements that reflect the instrumental sounds in Gainsbourg's own records of the time – almost a reworking of older 70s trash modes, but towards more comedic ends for the film. The piano passages are especially wonderful – and a real revelation, as they show an emotive quality we don't normally associate with Serge – and titles include "Travelo", "Traverse", "Traveste", "Trave", "Travaux", "Traviolta One", "Travelling", and "Travers". CD also features 6 rare bonus cuts too! CD

France Gall1968 ... CD
Philips (France), 1967. Used ... $7.99
A record as revolutionary as the French year in which it was recorded – an amazing batch of late 60s grooves from Parisian pop madame France Gall! The set's upbeat and jaunty, with plenty of fuzz – almost a psyche pop sound, with lots of groovy guitars that make the album sparkle with plenty of razor-sharp notes! Gall's vocals are as wonderful as ever, and almost sound a bit more sinister in this setting – thanks to arrangements by Alain Gouraguer and the great David Whitaker. There's plenty of France Gall classics here – including versions of the Serge Gainsbourg tunes "Nefertiti" and "Teenie Weenie Boppie" – plus "Toi Que Je Veux", "Made In France", "Bebe Requin", and "Avant La Bagarre".

Johnny GriffinNight Lady (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1964. Used ... $12.99
A rare European gem from Johnny Griffin – recorded in quartet formation with backing from the rhythm trio of the Clarke Boland Big Band! Johnny was working with the trio in the bigger group at the time, but he gets plenty of space to state his case here – stretching out on hard-bitten, almost-modern solos that are some of his most adventurous to date on record – supported strongly on the album's longish tracks by Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! There's a quality to Griffin's tone that's incredible – urgent, edgey, but never too far out – completely in command of itself, and able to run free, but without wasting at note at all – unlike some of his over-stretched European solos of later years. The set features beautiful long readings of Boland's "Night Lady" and "Old Stuff", plus Griffin's "Scrabble", and versions of "Summertime", "All The Things You Are", and "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day".

Luiz HenriqueA Bossa Moderna De Luiz Henrique (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $24.99
The title is perfect for the sound of this early set from Luiz Henrique – as the music is definitely the modern bossa promised in the title, and almost even groovier than some of Henrique's later American work for Verve! Luiz sings and plays guitar throughout – and often hits this wonderful mode that's equal parts samba and jazz, with lots of cool little inflections in both the vocals and instrumentation! The approach is a bit more lively than the usual bossa session, but never overdone as well – as Henrique keeps this perfect balance throughout, and really underscores the more sensitive emotions of the tunes with his very personal vocals. Luiz should have been a much bigger talent at the time – and this rare gem is proof that he was definitely one of the most striking talents on the Brazilian scene of the 60s. Titles include "Vagamente", "Balanco Do Mar", "Paz De Amor", "Se Amor E Isso", "Samba Skindim", "Toc Toc", and "Vou Andar Por Ai". CD

Nara LeaoOnde E Quando ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Nara Leao's later bossa gems – done in a real return to basics, and with some great help here from Roberto Menescal! Roberto arranged, produced, and plays guitar in the small combo backing Nara's vocals – and the sound is a strong precursor to the huge wave of bossa revival sessions that Menescal has done in recent years, recorded with a similarly bright touch on the instrumentation – but with deeper, more classic production too. Nara's vocals are as lovely and breezy as ever, and as on her Meus Sonhos Dourados album, titles include a number of older American standards reworked with Portuguese lyrics – with new titles that include "Maravilha", "Pleno Verao", "So Voce", "Saudades De Voce", and "Sem Querer".

Gracinha LeporaceGracinha (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Think (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $32.99
Great early work from singer Gracinha Leporace – a vocalist you might know from her later work in Bossa Rio, or her recordings with husband Sergio Mendes! Even at the start, Gracinha's a hell of a singer – a vocalist who's capable of all the coolness of the bossa era, yet still richly expressive in all the right ways – with a jazzy flourish at times that's perfect for the album's lively backings from Oscar Castro Neves! Instrumentation includes some sweet organ lines with a Walter Wanderley sort of groove – plus other moments that use woodwinds in this really lovely way – almost echoing some of the early Deodato charts. The whole thing's wonderful – a real lost bossa treasure – and titles include "Prece", "Cancao Da Desesperanca", "Ultima Batucada", "Rancho De Ano Novo", "A Saudade Fez Um Samba", "Sem Saida", "Cantiga", and "Em Tempo".

An Australian sexploitation soundtrack, but one with all the best European elements of the time – thanks to genius work from the continent-hopping Sven Libaek! Sven's got styles here that recall Italian mod, Brit sound library, and dreamy French film scores – including jazzy vocals, slinky instrumentation, bubbling Hammond organ, and even a few bossa nova moments – all wrapped together beautifully in one of the most seductive soundtracks we've ever heard! There's never a dull moment here – and we'd rank this one right up there with Sven's excellent work for underwater adventures and sound library records too – every bit as individual as those, and filled with jazzy goodness. Titles include "Touching Hands", "Love Me", "The Set", "You'll Love It", "The Youngsters", "Partytime At Bronski's", "Start Growing Up Now", and "That's Peg's Affair". CD

Carlos LyraE No Entanto E Preciso Cantar/Eu & Elas ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1971/1972. New Copy ... $9.99
2 later gems from Carlos Lyra – back to back on one CD! First up is E No Entanto E Preciso Cantar – a wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit more subdued than before – still with bossa at the roots, but also production and instrumentation that nod a bit more towards the singer/songwriter generation of the time – almost with a European feel at time. Roberto Menescal produced, and arrangements by Theo Barros have a slow-building, unassuming quality that's really great. Chico Buarque guests on the groover "Essa Passou", and other titles include "Identidade", "Rio Vermelho", "Primavera", "O Pregoeiro", "Ate Parece", and "I See Me Passing By". Eu & Elas is from a few years later, but equally great – never too full or overdone, with arrangements that still shadow a bit of older bossa orchestrations, but which are a bit more laidback and intimate overall. The sound is incredible, and Lyra's vocals are recorded in that flanged-out way that was used beautifully in Brazil at the time – spread speaker to speaker with a closeness that we really love. Titles include "Elas", "Isabel", "Despedida", "O Amor Mais Triste", and "Nothing Night". CD

Lars GullinFine Together – The Artistry Of Lars Gullin – Recordings 1957 to 1958 ... CD
Sonet (Sweden), 1957/1958. Used ... $11.99
Key late 50s recordings from Swedish saxophonist Lars Gullin – the first-ever album on the now-legendary Sonet label, coupled with a rare Philips 10" from the same time! The CD is a nice contrast to some of Gullin's more American-influenced sessions of the earlier part of the decade, and showcases his deepening talents for arranging and composition – and the shift in his sound towards more complicated patterns and darker colors in his horn. The work is mostly modern, but never too much so – and Gullin retains the fluidity that first made him one of the greatest talents on the baritone sax. Players include other Swedish modernists from the time – Rune Ofwerman on piano, Bert Dahlander on drums, Rune Gustafsson on guitar, and Arnold Johansson on vibes – and titles include "The Knob", "Aesthetic Lady", "Happy Again", "Stella By Starlight", "The Flight", "Good Day To You", "Fine Together", and "Icarus On The Moon".

The package brings together a whopping 30 tracks from Johnson's years at Okeh Records, and runs up to some sweet sides for Philips as well – tracing a great evolution from the late R&B years up to some deeper soul recorded at Fame Studios – a really rich journey in soul music, put together with the usual Bear Family love of historical details! Plenty of notes come with the package – tying Roy to other work with Piano Red (aka Dr Feelgood) – and titles include "Mister Moonlight", "Sea Breeze", "Black Pepper Will Make You Sneeze", "I'm So Happy", "Busybody", "Love Birds", "When A Guitar Plays The Blues", "Plowing Playboy", "Cheer Up Daddy's Comin Home", "Boogaloo #3", "Can You Handle It", "It's All Over", "Stanback Headache Powder", and "She Put The Whammy On Me".

Sylvia TellesVoce E Eu ... CD
Universal (Brazil), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful bossa by one of the first singers to really embrace the genre – the lovely Sylvia Telles, represented here by some of her best tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! Sylvia initially started as a singer with a bit more of the romantic flourishes of the postwar generation in Brazil, but soon became greatly enamored of the new bossa sound at the end of the 50s – and used her wonderfully clean, fluid style to really work magic with the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and others! This set combines tracks from Telles' years at Odeon and Philips – and features titles that include "Dindi", "Lobo Bobo", "Perdido De Amor", "Estrada Do Sol", "Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar", "Caminhos Cruzados", "Tu E Eu", "Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce", "Por Causa De Voce", and "Voce E Eu".

Som Livre/Bomba (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tighter than Jorge Ben's funky work from the early 70s – but still pretty darn great! The record's got Jorge working in a smoother vein than on his Philips sides, with the same sort of modern soul approach that Marcos Valle and other older Brazilian singers were using at the time. But since Jorge's always been a soulster from the start, the style works perfectly for his warm vocals and his keen talent for putting over a groove. Arrangements have kind of a brassy funky samba groove – and titles include "Ma Ma Ma Ma Mae", "Solitario Surfista", "Olha A Pipa", "Cae Cae Caetano", "Alo Alo, Como Vai?", and "A Cegohna Me Deixou Em Mardureira".
