New Clarinet SummitClarinet Summit – In Concert At The Public Theater ... LP LP format
India Navigation, 1984. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A genius idea – almost like the World Sax Quartet, but even more groundbreaking, in that the group unites 2 older players (Alvin Batiste and Jimmy Hamilton) with 2 younger players from the forefront of modern jazz (John Carter and David Murray). The result is wonderful – a record that will forever change your expectations of the sound of the clarinet in jazz, and which shows that reed work from a variety of generations can be equally influential across a variety of scenes. Titles include "Clariflavors", "Groovin High", "Sticks & Bones", "Sweet Lovely", and "The Washington Square Park Episode". LP, Vinyl record album

Damu The FudgemunkPublic Assembly ... CD CD format
Redefinition, 2014. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
As fine of a batch of raw, funky hip hop instrumentals from Damu The Fudgemunk as we've heard! Damu's style is reminiscent of the blueprint soul and funk samples era that we all cherish – with moody, murky head nodding instros, and some more thickly-layered jams too. Solid stuff! Public Assembly is made up of rare and unreleased instrumental versions, and titles include "Hole Up!", "Truly Get Yours", "Wings Remix", "Madvillain Revision", "Streamline", "Overthrone", "Brightside OG Mix", "Supply For Demand Intro" and more.

Public EnemyFear Of A Black Planet ... LP LP format
Def Jam, 1990. Very Good- ... $29.99
The mindblowing third album from Public Enemy – their second straight up masterpiece in a row – a more densely-layered effort than anything they'd down before or since! Agitprop lyricism laced with soundbite samples from myriad sources that get the point over nearly as fiecely as Chuck's rhymes, and the densest, most dizzying Bomb Squad production ever laid down. Amazing! Decades later, it's as exciting as ever. Includes classics like "Fight The Power", Burn Hollywood Burn", "Welcome To The Terrordome", "Power To The People", "911 Is A Joke" "Revolutionary Generation", "Can't Do Nuttin For Ya Man", "Reggie Jax", "War At 33 1/3" and more.

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP LP format
Motown, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric R&B, a touch of Latin and Afro-Carribbean pop. The Bed-Stuy melting pot bubbles over to tragic consequences in the film, but the diverse soundtrack is plenty harmonious, and sounds fresh to this day. Includes "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley featuring Guy, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Tu Y Yo" by Ruben Blades, "Can't Stand It" by Steel Pulse and "Don't Shoot Me" by Take 6.

VariousHappy Machine – Standard Music Library 1970 to 2010 ... LP LP format
Standard/Public (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $24.99
A very unusual set of sound library tracks – one that moves past the obvious funk of other collections, and goes instead for a range of great spacey sounds – served up here in early 70s recordings that are heavy on analogue electronics and other sweet touches, which then inspire greatness in decades to come! The music includes some surprising contributions from bigger names – like Beatles producer George Martin, or Brit arranger Mike Vickers – mixed with other artists who are even more experimental, and really make the most of the moog and other cool keyboards! The set's less happy than you might expect from the title – more trippy and almost spooky at times – on titles that include "Cathedral Of Space" by Brian Hodgson, "Arcadian Valley" by Reginald Lewis, "Haley's Largo" by John Keating, "Happy Soul" by Jim Lawless, "Headful Of Birds" by Mike Vickers, "The Seven Immortals" by Kirk Thompson, "On The Streets" by John Kongos, and "Eary Feary" by George Martin.

New BrickStoneheart ... LP LP format
Bang/CBS, 1979. Very Good- ... $0.99
Damn fine work from Brick – a group who's even tighter here than before – yet all without ever sounding too slick or commercial! Brick's one of that rare breed – a combo who can groove with an edge, even while cracking the mainstream – never hitting the biggest spots in the public eye, yet consistently keeping things great for years – and earning a huge legion of lifetime fans in the process! There's a great midtempo groove to many of these cuts – almost a precursor for Ohio, and later west coast funk of this sort – carved out nicely by the group in a very cohesive way. Titles include "We'll Love", "Raise Your Hands", "To Me", "Magic Woman", and "By The Moonlight". LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownThere It Is ... LP LP format
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Raw power and righteous energy from James Brown – a set that still has all the best funk elements of his longer-form albums of the time, but which also packs an even stronger political message too! The vibe of the record is clear from the image on the cover – the most powerful since Payback – and James is even more focused in the lyrics, which bite harder than some of his other commentary of the period – while still allowing the JBs plenty of room to serve up some heavy funk in the process! Titles include the classics "Public Enemy #1" and "King Heroin", both hard soul political tracks – and the funkier side of The Godfather is represented by the killer cuts "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothing" and James own version of "I Need Help" (which was also recorded by Bobby Byrd). The album also includes a great duet with Vicki Anderson on "Who Am I", the excellent title cut "There It Is", and a surprisingly nice version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" – as well as the single "I'm A Greedy Man".

John CorbettSun Ra & Aye Aton – Space, Interiors, & Exteriors 1972 ... Book Book
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 27.99
Amazing images from the universe of Sun Ra – a mixture of rare photographs and mural images painted by Aye Aton – sometime percussionist with the Arkestra, and a heck of a great painter too! The book begins with these stunning full color photographs of Ra on the set of Space Is The Place – images from 1972 that echo the cover of the album of the same name, but which feature a costumed Ra in a number of different settings – including a few parking lot shots that make him look like a true visitor from the cosmos, briefly walking on our planet! The bigger second half of the book features photographs of murals painted by Aton (who's also known as Robert Underwood) – all of them spacey and trippy, and in a similar spirit to the Saturn Records album covers – except these were all painted on walls and ceilings, in very vivid colors. Aye painted many images in the Arkestra commune in Philly – and other paintings appear to be from the south side of Chicago – and all work here is seen by the wider public for the first time ever. Archivist John Corbett provides an essay with the book to situate the work – and the whole thing's a vivid visual treat for any fan of Sun Ra! Book

A much better book than you'd guess from the title – and a wealth of wonderful images from the biggest city in England! As with the similar New York volume, the book lays out snapshots of great little visual jokes in London – strange store signs, odd posters, mistakes on public buildings, weird graffiti, and more – all in this humorous portrait of the city! Images are full color, mostly shot by the author, and work together in a great way to build up their power as you flip through the book. Book

Dee DanielsIntimate Conversations ... CD CD format
Origin, 2014. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
Dee Daniels is the kind of singer who really takes us back to our precious time spent in jazz clubs on the south side of Chicago a few decades back – during the days when the old school jazz singer seemed to be a dying breeed, as few labels really understood how to capture their genius or present them to the public. Daniels has an easygoing, relaxed way of putting over a tune – yet still manages to come across with a rich, soulful vibe throughout – whether singing her own great lyrics on one tune, or working through a mix of well-chosen tracks that have a lot more variety than just the usual standards set – the kind of material that a singer like Dee can really make her own, especially with help from a soulful small combo that includes Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Houston Person on tenor, and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone! Titles include "4AM", "Get Here", "Come Try My Love", "Don't Touch Me", "A Song For You", and "I Wish You Love". CD

Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career. While the overly arch Times They Are A Changin' pretty much stood as the cornerstone of classifiable folk rock at the time, Another Side is just that. Dense, elliptical, and downright surreal at times, with some of the protesty stuff that made the media so happy & hungry, but much more layered and poetic. Another side is also much more reverent of and indebted to the Harry Smith field recordings that Bob studied so hard, the stuff that finally caught on with the general public in the early 90s. Titles include "Spanish Harlem Incident", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Ballad In Plain D", "Black Crow Blues", "I Don't Believe You", "Motorpsycho Nitemare", "To Ramona", "Chimes Of Freedom", "My Back Pages", and "I Shall Be Free No 10".

Jazz On The Latin Side All-StarsJazz On The Latin Side All-Stars Vol 1 ... CD CD format
CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
An excellent set that's a fitting tribute to the genius of the West Coast Latin Scene! For as many years as New York's been a hot city for Latin jazz, Los Angeles has also had an excellent scene, filled with many talented players – but it's always been eclipsed in the history books because of a New York-centrism in reissues, compilations, and general writing on Latin music. However, one of the strongest forces to change this Big Apple-bias in Latin fans has been the groundbreaking Jazz On The Latin Side radio program – which for the past decade has provided public radio with broadcasts of live sets that show the rich amount of talent on the west coast. On the 10th anniversary of the show, a host of great players teamed up to cut this live set for Cubop in LA – including Justo Almario, Francisco Aguabella, Alex Acuna, Otmario Ruiz, Poncho Sanchez, and many others. The music is sophisticated Latin jazz, drenched in the soulful history that separates west coast Latin – especially that of the 70s – from its east coast counterpart. The playing is great, and the record is way more than a loose roots-oriented jam session. Higlights include the massive 15 minute "Descarga Cachao", plus original compositions "Mujer Chicana", "Shortcuts", and "Arabian Moods", which were all written by Jose Rizo, the host of the Jazz On The Latin Side program. Great stuff – and another winner for Cubop! CD

KlanNerwy Miast ... CD CD format
GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavy grooves from Poland's Klan – a group who worked more in the sound library scene than they did in the public eye – but who come across here with the rawness of some of the best British groups of the time! Bass is often very heavy – something that can make Klan sound funky on later records – but here, the focus is more hard rock – but at that great early level without any cliches, which creates a sinister current that holds plenty strong – even if you don't understand the language. Hammond comes in on some of the best tracks too – often with these cool trippy touches, and echoes of an older beat group vibe – and although vocals figure on most numbers, it's the band's deft instrumentation that really grabs us. Titles include "Kuzeni", "Winter", "Nerwy Miast", "Mrowisko", "Ani Ty", "Rajd Safari", and "Dwunastawka" – plus great covers of "Watermelon Man" and "Spinning Wheel". CD

New Lafayette Afro-Rock BandDarkest Light – The Best Of The Lafayette Afro-Rock Band ... CD CD format
Strut (UK), Mid/Late 70s. Used ... $18.99
The definitive batch of tracks by one of the 70s' most famous funk ensembles ever! The Lafayette Afro Rock Band were a bunch of Americans, relocated in Paris, who mixed that city's strong African music traditions with their own American funk and soul leanings. The result was an incredible sound that included lots of heavy percussion, fuzzy guitar, and the very cool "magic bag" sound that was half vocoder/half keyboard! This compilation of tracks features the band at all of their incarnations – from the early group Ice, to the middle group Lafayette Afro Rock Band, to the later group Ice, to the backup on albums by Mal Waldron, Crispy & Co, and Dr.Beezar. The notes are impeccable, and even if you've got some of our other reissues by the group, this one has tracks that have never been out before – and it's got amazing notes that totally show the whole history of the group, and which give a full (and complicated!) discography! A beautiful package, and essential for groove hounds of all varieties. Sure, some tracks on this cross over with the other reissues – but this one contains the legendary "Darkest Light" sample (used by Public Enemy to great fame!), plus "Soul Frankenstein", "The Gap (instrumental)", "Conga", "Malik", "Soul Makossa", "Scorpion Flower", "Heels & Soles", "Nicky", and lots more!

Ostensibly released as a project by Penthouse Magazine, and packaged in a tri-fold cover that includes loads of nudie photos of their playmates (or is it "pentmates"?), this is actually a nice bit of extended disco grooves, with some good acoustic percussion, hard conga and kick drums, strings, and electric keyboard lines. The album's broken out into two long tracks (on on each side), "Let's Make Love In Public Places" and "Let Me Be Your Fantasy". Both are nice disco groovers, and we don't see this album that often, either! LP, Vinyl record album

Kilmarnock, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
Funky madness from the mind of Galt MacDermot – the second volume of rare work from his deep deep vaults! Galt's best known to most of the world as the man who wrote the music for Hair, but to us beatheads, the best stuff is his rare work – a wealth of incredible drumbreaks, basslines, piano riffs, and quirky rhythms – recorded for years on his own, finally now getting out to the public! This album's almost better than the first volume – as it's filled with stripped down instrumental cuts that feature plenty of drums (by either Idris Muhammad or Bernard Purdie), electric keyboards, and other instrumentation like flute or guitar. A few cuts have vocals, but even those are nice and funky – and honestly, the album's maybe even better all the way through than most of Galt's classic albums from the old days! Titles include "Ba Ba Black Baby", "Lost Dreams", "Ghetto Suite Medley", "DD 2 03", "Wurly", "Water Fight", and "Cleanly & Pump". LP, Vinyl record album

The scope of OSS 117's adventures was large – as globe-spanning as that of James Bond, a fact that gave Magne plenty of room to throw in cool exotic, groovy, and jazzy elements to the soundtracks – in a style that was ultimately a heck of a lot more lively than that of John Barry, and which easily matches the best 60s soundtrack work of Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Goldsmith, or Hugo Montenegro! We'd honestly never heard any of these tracks before – but our love of Magne led us to the set, and we were certainly rewarded – as the 23 track package is overflowing with incredibly groovy tunes, and has the feel of some of the best Crippled Dick collections from years past! The four films on the set include OSS 117 Se Dechaine, Banco A Bangkok Pour OSS 117, Furia A Bahia Pour OSS 117, and Atout Coeur A Tokyo Pour OSS 117 – and titles include "OSS 117 Hully Gully", "Banco A Bangkok", "Poursuite Thailandaise", "Hubert Rit Jaune", "Samba Furiosa", and "Slow Du Soleil Levant" – as well as a bonus remix track by Roudoudou!

New Miracles, Martha & The Vandellas, & OthersNothing But A Man – Original Soundtrack ... CD CD format
Motown, 1965. Used ... $6.99
Strange little soundtrack to a film that starred Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln. The music on the album isn't new for the film – but it is a tasty batch of Motown tracks, put together by the producers of the record because the music "had its original public acceptance as the popular recorded music of the period and climate surrounding the scene of the action [of the film]." Titles icnlude "Mickey's Monkey", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "I'll Try Something New", and "That's The Way I Feel" by The Miracles; "Fingertips Part 2" by Stevie Wonder; "Way Over There" by The Marvelettes; "Bye Bye Baby" by Mary Wells, "Come On Home" by Holland & Dozier; and "Love Is Like A Heat Wave" by Martha & The Vandellas.

New Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 (with download) ... LP LP format
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". Features a great 16 page booklet with extensive liner notes and photos! LP, Vinyl record album

Madeline Bell/Themes International Rhythm SectionVoice Of Soul/Sound Of Soul ... CD CD format
Themes/Vocalion (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Two wonderfully soulful albums from the Themes International sound library label – back to back on a single CD! The Voice Of Soul is a rare date from singer Madeline Bell – a vocalist who cut some key commercial work in the late 60s and 70s UK scene, but who shines beautifully on this rare set for the sound library! The tunes are all vocal, with Madeline in the lead – and the overall feel is a bit like Bell's This Is The One Girl set from the mid 70s – but with a leaner feel overall, thanks to the relatively small combo backing up the vocals. And although the record was never issued publicly at the time, it's a killer batch of mellow soul from the 70s – great vocals sliding along with the keyboards, and quite possibly Bell's finest moment on wax. Titles include "Your Smile", "You're A Winner", "Love Doctor", "Soul Slap", "Flying High", "Mr Smooth Man", and "Love Is All". The Sound Of Soul is all instrumental – classic set of soulful sound library tracks – lots of sweet keyboards, guitar, basslines, and other nice bits – one of the best of the titles on the Themes library label during the 70s, and with loads of great tracks by Alan Parker! The overall style is especially in the cop show mode – with tight production, but lots of hard riffing funk – and titles include "Move & Shake Your Body", "Love Doctor", "Soul Slap", "Crumpet", "Flying High", "Mr Smooth Man", and "Love Is All".

Gustav BromBrom Stream ... LP LP format
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1966. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Some of the most modern work we've ever heard from groundbreaking Eastern European bandleader Gustav Brom – a set that's filled with sharp edges and experimental moments – but which also shows some of the usual Brom swing we've come to love over the years! There's a Kenton-esque love of tone colors going on here – a great sense of placement for the horns, so that they shift over each other wonderfully to create new sounds and tensions, which are then relaxed as the players break into freer solos. The "stream" in the title might be a reference to third stream jazz, but Brom's approach is a lot less academic here – and his group on the album features trumpet, tenor, alto, vibes, baritone sax, and piano. Titles include "Suite About Water", "Study For A Quarter Tone Trumpet", "Silver Spider", "Black Tears", "Poseidon", "Conflicts", and "Hallelujah Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original pressing – in great shape, save for some light wear on the cover.)
