Ornette ColemanThis Is Our Music (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Atlantic/ORG, Early 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
A landmark in modern jazz – from the stark stares of the band on the cover, to the starkly haunting music in the grooves! The record makes a bold statement right from the outset – and more than lives up to its promise in the sound within – an amazing approach to modern jazz that's still quite powerful, even all these many years later! The group features Ornette Coleman on alto, Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums – moving at a fast, highly rhythmic pace that still leaves us breathless – filled with angles, but wrapped up in soul. The group make severe statements about the future of modern music in tracks like "Humpty Dumpty", "Beauty Is a Rare Thing", and "Kaleidoscope" – bouncing the efforts of the whole group off the beat, in a way that's both challenging and groove-heavy at the same time, a key summation of the genius of Ornette's early vision!

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin Hopkins Sings The Blues (Crown) ... LP
RPM/Crown, Late 40s/Early 50s. Very Good ... $38.99
Lightnin Hopkins sings the blues – and virtually helps reinvent the genre in the process with these classic Texas recordings for the RPM label! The style here is much rootsier than some of the postwar blues coming out from other scenes – quite spare, and almost more in a delta style of singer and guitar, without much else in the mix. Yet Hopkins' use of an electric instrument here is seminal – as he works the strings with these inflections and inspirations that would have a huge impact on countless other musicians to come – first blues contemporaries, then bigger talents in the world of rock in later decades. Yet there's still nothing better than these initial recordings – as few folks have a way of hitting the right modes in the right way like Lighnin – both vocally, where he's simple but extremely powerful – and instrumentally, where he can always grab us with just a surprising flick or two of his fingers on the strings.

United FrontOHM – Unit Of Resistance ... LP
RPM, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Early 80s free-ish material from this lesser known but very hip west coast group. The style here is in a mode that mixes part soul jazz influences with modernist post-modal, post-free soloing in a style that doesn't seem so out of place considering this group appears to hail from the Bay area, very much in a Strata East vein. The lineup is Anthony Brown on percussion, Mark Izu on bass, Lewis Jordan on alto sax and voice, George Sams on trumpet and Jason Michaels contributing piano to two pieces, and the whole set is made up of original material, with 5 tracks in all, including "Nomadic Winds", Nothing Is More Precious Than Independence & Freedom", "I Will Be Free", "Ichi Ni San" and 'What IO Heard Once".

ValentinesSound Of The Valentines (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 29.99
Early work from a young Bon Scott – heard here years before his fame in AC/DC, as one of two singers in the mighty Valentines – a late 60s Aussie group with a wonderfully groovy sound! At some level, these guys share a lot with the British beat group scene of the period – a love of elements from American soul and R&B, which sometimes means they're even covering songs from the US, but in a more rocking way – but The Valentines also have a cool approach that often has them shifting lead vocal chores between Scott and Vince Lovegrove, but with the other harmonizing along – which gives them a fuller feel, and a mode that almost reminds us of the earliest Bee Gees material from Australia. Scott's already got some of the rawness in his voice that you'll know and love – and titles include "Can't Dance With You", "Every Day I Have To Cry", "She Said", "On My Mind", "Gloria", "Love Makes Sweet Music", "Sooky Sooky", "I Can Hear The Raindrops", and "Why Me".

LionsSoul Riot ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
The Lions seem to get deeper and deeper with each new release – moving past their start as a funk band with a focus on Kingston sounds – into a group who've got a really fresh feel of their own! Sure, some cuts here are great reggae numbers – the kind of mellow, head-nodding cuts The Lions have always given us – but there's also some more complicated elements going on too, these little touches of darkness at times, especially on the rhythms, which can break from obvious patterns into something nicely unique. Plenty of guests help flesh out the tunes – including Malik The Freq Moore, Black Shakespeare, Alex Desert, and Myron Glasper – and titles include "My Girl", "Going Nowhere", "Rhythm Rock", "Feels Good", "At A Loss", "Smoke & Mirrors", and "When It Rains". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download! Pressed at 45 rpm – for even more booming sound!)

Pepe Sanchez Y Su Rock BandRegresion (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
Fantastic funk from the Spanish scene of the 70s – a set that starts out in the best electric fusion mode, but also embraces some older Spanish currents too – with a groove that's almost a 70s funk take on some of the flamenco jazz experiments of the late 60s! Yet we'll also say that there's more reedwork here than guitar – including some sublime tenor and soprano sax from the great Pedro Iturralde, easily one of the best Spanish jazz musicians of his generation – working here with other soloists on flute, trumpet, and trombone – all led by the heavy drums of Pepe Sanchez! Bass and electric keyboards round out the groove – creating this great criss-crossing of rhythms that's mighty nice – on titles that include "Sentimiento", "Renacimiento", "Cantares", "Regresion", "Nostalgia", "Paisajes", and "A Mi Tierra". Also includes two bonus tracks from a later 45 rpm single – "Love Me" and "Encuentros En La 5a Dimension". LP, Vinyl record album

Scientist & Prince JammyDub Landing Volume 1 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Dub Mir, 1981/1982. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A dub landing of massive proportions – served up here on some classic early 80s work by Scientist, who's really making magic in the studio with the sounds of the Roots Radics Band! The tunes are stark, sharp, and very focused – and at some level, the mixologist is maybe keeping himself a bit more in check – to allow for some rootsy currents to flow through, and give the music a surprisingly soulful vibe from time to time – even when the echo's booted up a bit, and spacey sounds start to filter into the mix. Titles include "Attack", "Beaming", "Invaders", "Landing", "Vulcan", "Black Out", "Time Passage", and "Galaxy". LP, Vinyl record album
(45 rpm audiophile pressing – with bonus CD!)

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

✨✧ Kenny BurrellFreedom (180 gram 2LP pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Masters, 1963. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A rare set of work by Kenny Burrell – recorded for Blue Note in 1963, but unissued until the time of this early 80s Japanese-only release! The work is amazing – quite different than some of Kenny's other work for Blue Note, in that the tracks are shorter, and apparently recorded with the intention of releasing the material on 45 rpm singles. Kenny's tone is great – lean, mean, and perfect for the setting – a masterpiece of economy and soul. And players include Stanley Turrentine, Herbie Hancock, Bill English, and Ray Barretto on one session; and Seldon Powell, Hank Jones, and Osie Johnson on another. There's some great twists and turns to the tunes – including Baretto's conga licks, tasty flute from Powell, and even a bit of organ from Jones – and titles include "G Minor Bash", "K Twist", "Freedom", "The Good Life", and "Loie".

Afrika BambaataaZulu Rainin Hell Mix By Jimmy Jim ... LP
Boo Hooray, Late 70s/Early 80s/2014. New Copy ... $6.99
A fantastic treasure from the early days of hip hop – a special mix that's made completely from rare Afrika Bambaataa/Zulu Nation dub plates and acetates – cut together here by Jimmy Jim, with a feel that's just like stumbling into some South Bronx party back in the day! The limited vinyl was released as part of the Renegades Of Rhythm tour by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist – in honor of the legendary Afrika Bambaataa! The LP features two 33 1/3 rpm sides – "Zulu Funk I" and "Zulu Funk II". LP, Vinyl record album
