Jimmy MurphySouthern Routes – The Legendary Starday/Rem Sessions ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Overlooked work from Jimmy Murphy – an artist who recorded these songs for two small labels in the mid 60s, but who has a feel that's much more like older hillbilly styles overall! The recording quality is nice and stripped down – the labels were almost going for an older revival feel that really fits Murphy's Alabama roots, and which has this blend of bluegrass acoustic instrumentation and more country-based phrasing – served up by Murphy with some great work on 12-string guitar! Some numbers cross into that great spiritual bluegrass/gospel territory, while others have the rural charm of older Louvin Brothers material (but without the harmonies, natch) – and the CD is the first time that proper due has ever been given to Murphy in this way, especially in these final commercial recordings of his career. 21 titles in all – including "Take This Message To Mother", "Hub Cap", "Big Train", "Tears In The Eyes Of A Potato", "Little Black Train", "You Better Get Ready", "Holy Ghost Millionaire", "I Believe", and "Half A Loaf Of Bread".

✨✧ REMChronic Town ... LP
IRS, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The legendary first EP from REM! On Chronic Town, REM arrives with their early career, mumbling melodic style already in full form – if a bit more rawly produced than on their first couple proper LPs. None of songs have as resonant of a chorus as their earlier single "Radio Free Europe", rather shows the band to be a bit more enigmatic overall – setting the tone for Murmur and Life's Rich Pageant to come. Includes "1,000,000", "Stumble", "Wolves,Lower", "Gardening At Night" and "Carnival Of Sorts (Box Cars)". LP, Vinyl record album

Rob AgerbeekMiss Dee ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
A heck of a set from Dutch pianist Rob Agerbeek – easily one of the most soulful European pianists of the 70s, even in an acoustic setting like this! Rob's got a bite on the keys that reminds us a lot more of American players from the 60s – not a straight soul jazz groove, but a style that definitely draws from that mode – then opens up into some more lyrical elements that are more in keeping with overseas expression in the 70s. The trio matches his energy nicely – especially on the upbeat numbers that rule the set – with bass from Harry Emmery and drums from Eric Ineke – on titles that include "Little Miss Dee", "Cup Bearers", "Birk's Works", "Caravan", and "Out Of This World".

Miriam AidaCome On Home ... CD
Connective (Germany), 2008. Used ... $12.99
Miriam Aida really knocks our socks off with this set – a classic-styled album of jazz vocals that's quite different than some of her previous Brazilian-tinged work! Aida really captures a cool sort of 50s/60s groove here – a hip-walking approach to female jazz vocals that packs a lot more punch than overdone torch vocal styles, and which really reminds us of some of our favorites from back in the day – like Annie Ross or Marian Montgomery! Most numbers are taken in a soul jazz style – played live by a combo that includes sax and flute from Fredrik Kronkvist, plus organ, piano, bass, and drums – and the tunes are mostly old too, and set up in some hip rhythms that really keep things groovy. Titles include a great vocal take on Dusko Goykovich's "A Handful Of Soul", plus "Now That You're Gone", "Come On Home", "Make Sure You're Sure", "Rainbow's End", "Ruby & The Pearl", and "Jive Samba".

Airboy & ValkyrieComplete Golden Age Airboy & Valkyrie (hardcover) ... Book
CSP, Late 40s. New Copy ... $6.99 24.99
One of the best-remembered features of the Golden Age of comics – presented here in a beautiful hardcover package! Airboy was part aviation adventure – ala Blackhawk – and part young male fantasy – ala Terry & The Pirates – but the strip was something special all its own – thanks to superb art and stories, which easily put the comic on a par with the best of the time! Art here is by Fred Kida on most entries – with additional work by Arthur Peddy and Ernest Schroeder – and the book focuses on stories in which Airboy is paired with the lovely Valkyrie – who brings an undercurrent of sex that the strip didn't always present. Material is from issues of Air Fighters and Airboy from 1943 to 1952 – and the book is 136 pages, full color, and very nicely done! Book

AirtoFingers (Japanese pressing) ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1973. Used ... $7.99
One of Airto's greatest records ever – a really hard hitting batch of tracks that mix sharp-edged fusion lines with some earthier Brazilian percussion touches – all in a way that nicely steps off of Airto's first few American releases, and warms the groove up with a nice dose of California soul! Flora Purim joins in here on both vocals and percussion – and the rest of the group features Hugo Fattoruso on keyboards and harmonica, Jorgte Fattoruso on drums, and David Amaro on both electric and acoustic guitars – shifting nicely between both instruments in a way that further underscores the blended vibe of the record! Most of these tracks are Airto classics – like "Tombo in 7/4", "San Francisco River", "Romance Of Death", "Ringers", and "Wind Chant" – and the record has a very sweet CTI production style, but is still rough enough around the edges to keep things nice and real!

On the Body Rock imprint, which if we're not mistaken was a side label to Tommy Boy. With a synth heavy production style that's not quite electro, but is definitely 80s, from Adrian Sherwood, on some levels remarkably different from the On-U sound he'd forged, and edits by Double Dee & Steinski! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Edip Akbayram & DostlarNice Yillara Gulum ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1982. New Copy ... $16.99
An early 80s album from Turkish legend Edip Akbayaram – served up in a style that's more keyboard-oriented than some of the guitar-based Arabesk rock of the 70s – but in a mode that's still pretty darn trippy overall! The keyboards have an approach that's maybe a bit more understated, which puts Edip's vocals even more forward in the lead – and both elements are processed in a cool way that kind of fuses everything together in the production – electrifying Edip, and giving the keys some personality of their own. The Turkish phrasing makes for an especially captivating sound on the lyrics – and titles include "Aman Kerem", "Kibar Gelin", "Sinesine Vura Vura", "Sirin Nar", "Cana Kurban", and "Bitliste Bes Minare".

AkikoHip Pop Bop ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2002. New Copy ... $16.99
The second album by Japanese singer Akiko – and light years ahead of her first! This set brings Akiko's jazzy vocals into contact with work by a number of different arrangers and producers – including Keiji Matsumoto, Yoshito Tanaka, and Swing Out Sister! The range of tracks is really great, and features a number of older English language standards and pop tunes, redone in a variety of formats. Some tracks feature beats and keyboards, others have straight jazz backings, and still others have a widely expansive soulful set of arrangements. Includes a great cover of the Brazilian club classic "Skindo Le Le", a great remake of "Waters Of March", and the tracks "Paradise City", "Lover Man", "Manual", "Blues No 8", "Do You Know", "Midnight Sun", and "Smile".

AkikoUpstream ... CD
Verve (Japan), 2001. New Copy ... $16.99
7 lovely tracks from Japanese jazz singer Akiko – featuring the soulful vocalist in a number of different modes! The set kicks off with a fantastic groover called "Upstream" – produced by Yoshito Tanaka with a nice acoustic bounce, and well worth the title of the set. Next up is a mellow reading of "Fly Me To The Moon", sung in English and done fairly straight – plus two versions of "Lupin The Third", one done straight, one with a lot of extra beats and production. The set also includes a remix of "On & On" done by Toshio Matsuura for United Future Organization, plus "You Are Not My Kind", and a straight reading of "If I Had You", produced by French jazz maestro Henri Renaud.

Steve AlaimoTwist With Steve Alaimo ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Surprisingly great work from Steve Alaimo – hardly just the album of simple twist covers that you might expect, although there's definitely a twisting vibe to the record too! Like some of the better twist-related projects of the early 60s – particularly those from soul and R&B sources – this one's got a very gritty groove at the bottom, which comes from lots of hard-snapping rhythms mixed with quick-stepping guitar – plus some other instrumentation that brings a surprisingly gritty undercurrent to Alaimo's music. If you ever thought he was just a simple pop singer, check out this album for a whole new sound – filled with tasty groovers that include "Good Good Lovin", "Do The Mashed Potatoes", "Lucille", "I've Got It", "Boppin The Blues", "Do The Hully Gully", "Twist All Nights", and more great grooves from the early 60s Miami scene!

Ralph AlessiQuiver ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
No quiver here, as the sound of Ralph Alessi's trumpet is tight and true – blown out beautifully in a quartet setting that's awash in color and tone! Alessi has a way of playing openly, with a nice sense of flow – but in a way that avoids some of the more atmospheric trumpet modes of other players on ECM – given his sense of phrasing, which can be subtle, but extremely powerful – even in mellower moments – in this way that has Ralph stating his "voice" through his instrument, but without overstating himself at all. The rest of the group features Gary Versace on piano, Drew Gress on bass, and Nasheet Waits on drums – players who can sometimes hang back and join together in this lower range of sound that furthers Alessi's carefully-chosen moments of personality. Titles include "Here Tomorrow", "Smooth Descent", "Heist", "Quiver", "Shush", and "Gone Today Here Tomorrow". CD

Eric AlexanderIt's All In The Game ... CD
High Note, 2006. Used ... $8.99
A hokey kind of cover, but a great little album – another easy winner from the team of Eric Alexander and Harold Mabern, easily one of the greatest pairs working together in jazz for the past decade or so! Alexander's got a tremendous tone on the tenor – finely-honed with the maturity of a later Dexter Gordon, but also open to fluid, free moments too – with a sense of joy and exploration that recall our favorite moments on mid 60s Blue Note or Prestige. Mabern is great too – warm on the keys, but never sloppy – a player more filled with soul these days than ever, and always a great accompanist to Alexander's shifting range of modes in a set like this. Drums are by Joe Farnsworth, another trustworthy regular partner to the pair – and Nat Reeves completes the quartet on bass. Titles include 3 excellent Alexander originals (always his best work on record) – "Typhoon 11", "Little Lucas", and "Open & Shut" – plus versions of "Where Is The Love", "Where Or When", "Ruby My Dear", and "It's All In The Game".

✨✧ Eric AlexanderUp, Over & Out ... CD
Delmark, 1993. Used ... $6.99
Clear, clean, and tremendous tenor work from a young Eric Alexander – working here in one of his early partnerships with pianist Harold Mabern – in a way that really helps to re-direct Mabern's energy, and take him back to the glory days of his recordings in the 60s! Alexander's tenor has a classic sound here that's wonderful – focused and very sure of itself, and able to roll out on longer numbers with a great sense of imagination that avoids any too-easy notes or hackneyed choices. Mabern follows suit strongly – sounding better than on any of his trio records from the same period, and matching Alexander's youthful energy with some soaring lines of his own – often in a modal mode that seems to bring out the best in both players. Drums are by the rock-solid Joe Farnsworth, and bass is by John Ore – on tracks that include "Up Over & Out", "Eronel", "Flying Fish", "Blues For Mabe", "I Remember Clifford", and "Bewitched". CD

Lorez AlexandriaThis Is Lorez/Lorez Sings Pres ... CD
King/BGP (UK), 1957. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Incredible early work from Lorez Alexandria – the kind of albums that instantly set her apart from other singers of the 50s, reissued here properly for the first time in years! On This Is Lorez, the singer is working with sublime small combo backings from the group of pianist King Fleming – an unusual Chicago ensemble that includes Wilber Wynn on guitar, Ronald Wilson on flute and oboe, Vernel Fournier on drums, and Audrey Jones on bongos – a musical lineup that brings in a different sort of sophistication to the record, shading tunes with moody colors on flute and oboe that perfectly support Alexandria's soulful and sensitive interpretations of the tunes. The whole thing is pure genius, and a key look at the new levels of sophistication that were bubbling everywhere on the Chicago scene during the years of Jamal and Sun Ra. Lorez Sings Pres follows in a very similar mode – with backing by a Chicago group that again includes King Fleming piano, plus Charles Stepney on vibes, Paul Serrano on trumpet, and Vernel Fournier on drums – an extremely hip lineup that makes the record far more than just the Lester Young tribute promised in the title! But despite the instrumentalists, the real star on all sides is Alexandria – who sings with dark tones and deep colors that go far beyond conventional jazz vocals – all carried off with that slightly breathy mode that was one more unique aspect of her work! CD features all tracks from both albums – a total of 22 titles that include "Snowstorm", "I'm Glad There Is You", "The Sky Is Crying", "I'm Making Believe", "Necessity", "Penthouse Serenade", "DB Blues", "This Year's Kisses", "Easy Living", "No Eyes Blues", "Jumping With Symphony Sid", and a key early reading of "Baltimore Oriole".

✨✧ Alma Afrobeat EnsembleIt's Time ... CD
Slow Walk (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 17.99
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)".

✨✧ Johnny Almond Music MachinePatent Pending ... LP
Deram, 1969. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A stone groover from British multi-instrumentalist Johnny Almond – stepping out here on a range of instruments that includes tenor, alto, flute, organ, vibes, and mellotron! Like Almond's other session from the time, the set's got a tightly arranged groove that feels a lot like some of the best funky soundtrack work of the late 60s – an approach that has the larger band vamping in a mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, while Almond soars out on expressive solos that nicely shift with the feel of each track! A few numbers take on a slightly exotic feel that we really love – using heavy percussion and a bit of effects to emphasize the groove – and a good part of the credit for the strength of the album should go to drummer Alan White, who's really cutting it up nicely here! Titles include a version of Yusef Lateef's "Before Dawn", plus the original numbers "Tales Of Junior", "Solar Level", "Voodoo Forest", "Pequeno Novo", and "To RK", a great tribute to Roland Kirk!

Gerald AlstonGerald Alston ... LP
Motown, 1988. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Brilliant solo work from Gerald Alston – the first album issued under his own name, after a strong legacy of work with The Manhattans! Alston's vocals are wonderful here – beautifully crafted, with a sense of maturity and feeling that most of his younger soul contemporaries couldn't match – polished with the kind of class that kept The Manhattans strong well into the 80s – but updated nicely with some of the more adult soul modes of the latter part of the decade. Production is by Stan Sheppard and James Varner, who know to keep things laidback to keep Alston at his best – and titles include "Stay A Little While", "You Laid Your Love On Me", "I've Waited All Night", "Activated", "We've Only Just Begun", and "I Come Alive When I'm With You".
