VariousUncompromising Expression – The Story Of Blue Note In 75 Singles (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99 69.99
A surprisingly cool package from Blue Note Records – especially given its unassuming cover! The 5CD set looks at a really overlooked side of the Blue Note legacy – the label's strong line of 78 and 45 rpm singles over the years – many of which featured different mixes or performances than the better-known album recordings from the time! The set begins with the earliest years of Blue Note – and goes right up to the present, to include some rare promo or download-only tracks too – but the core focus is on the legendary Blue Note years of the 50s, 60s, and early 70s – with a tremendous amount of hard-to-find gems that were originally only issued as 7" records. The package features 75 tracks in all, with a sweet little book on all the material too – which includes all the session/lineup details for each cut – and titles include "The Thin Man" by Art Blakey, "Born To Be Blue" by Wynton Kelly, "Oop Pop A Da" by Bab's 3 Bips & A Bop, "Topsy" by Ike Quebec Swing Seven, "Summertime" by Sidney Bechet, "Safari" by Horace Silver, "Roccus" by Lou Donaldson, "Senor Blues" by Bill Henderson, "Blue Train (part 1)" by John Coltrane, "Oscalypso" by Curtis Fuller, "DB Blues" by Kenny Burrell, "The High & The Mighty" by Jimmy Smith, "Message From Kenya" by Art Blakey & Sabu, "Ain't No Use" by Jimmy Smith & Bill Henderson, "The Rake" by Dizzy Reece, "True Blue" by Tina Brooks, "One Mint Julep" by Freddie Hubbard, "Ernie's Tune" by Dexter Gordon, "Our Miss Brooks" by Harold Vick, "Miss Ann's Tempo" by Grant Green, "Change" by Donald Byrd, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Theme From Electric Surfboard" by Jack McDuff, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Robert Glasper, "Holding Onto You" by Derric Hodge, and "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Cassandra Wilson.

Capitol, Early 70s/1976. Very Good ... $14.99
Excellent live set from the early 70's, featuring George Duke, Airto, Ernie Watts, and brother Nat. David Axelrod produced, and the LP's got that nice hard funky sound that he did so well during his stint with Cannonball. Includes the 12 minute groover "The Brakes", plus "Oh Babe", "Music, You All", and "Capricorn". Lots of funky drums and bass, and with a lot of space in the arrangements to let things break down!

James Bond (Jimmy Bond)James Bond Songbook ... CD
Mira/BGP (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $11.99
Way more than just a James Bond cash-in record – and instead an ultra-hip jazz session from the west coast scene of the 60s! The James Bond at the helm of the record is actually Jimmy Bond – the great bassist who worked on some key sessions of the late 50s and early 60s as a sideman, and who turns out to be a surprisingly great leader on this rare mid 60s date! The record is more jazz than anything else – played with a crime/spy bent, to be sure – but also flowing with really great solos and a fair bit of a bossa influence in the rhythms! The group here is more than hip enough to make the record work – with Harold Land on tenor sax, Bobby Bryant on trumpet, and Buddy Colette on flute and tenor – all working in a sextet led by Bond, with plenty of round, warm, almost modal lines on his bass – punctuated nicely by piano from Joe Parnello and drums by Joh Guarin. Arrangements are by Dick Groove – who keeps things very groovy – and many of the tracks here are actually original numbers written by Bond and Warren Baker, titled after Ian Fleming books that had not yet been made into movies at the time of this album! Titles include "Casino Royale", "Moonraker", "For Your Eyes Only", "007 Theme From Dr No", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Diamonds Are Forever", and "Live & Let Die". CD

Peter Brotzmann & Hamid DrakeSolid & Spirit ... LP
Nero's Neptune, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Tremendous duets between reedman Peter Brotzmann and drummer Hamid Drake – two players who are no strangers to each other after all these years, yet who still manage to come together in a way that's always fresh and compelling! The double-length album features long tracks spun out over two full LPs – with energy that builds at a level that almost takes us back to New York loft jazz of the 70s – with a sense of soul and spirit you don't always get from Brotzmann in other settings, and even on some of his other recordings with Drake. Peter plays alto, tenor, tarogato, and b flat clarinet – and Drake is stunning on the conventional drum kit, which he works in ways that still leave us breathless – as well as some of his unique percussion on a hand drum too. Titles include "Pitch A Bull", "Poppa Stoppa", "Streevus Mone On The Reevus Come", "Strike & Fade", and "Us Own Things". LP, Vinyl record album

Vashti BunyanSome Things Just Stick In Your Mind – Singles & Demos 1964 to 1967 ... LP
DiCristina, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 19.98
Beautiful early work from British singer Vashti Bunyan – an important figure in the acid folk scene at the end of the 60s, heard here on some really wonderful work from a few years before! Some of the tracks have a really trippy style, and others are a bit more like conventional Brit girl pop of the time – but given a very weird twist overall, with a sound that's quite hard to describe! Vashti's vocals have these really dark qualities overall – and even when the backings are fuller (which often they are not), there's a sad, earthy feel to her singing. But equally great is her guitar work – heard with more prominence on most of the album's previously-unissued tracks from mid 60s tapes. Bunyan plays with these warm harmonics that kind of nestle and bristle underneath her vocals – pushing the tunes up with a sense of brightness in contrast to the voice – almost in a Nick Drake sort of way (and trust us, we don't throw around comparisons to his music easily!) The package is a wonderful look at these almost-lost years of Vashti's career – and it features both sides of her Decca and Columbia singles, an unreleased Immediate single, and a lot more tracks pulled from rare tapes from 1964, 1966, and 1967! Set features 25 tracks that include "Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind", "Train Song", "Love Song", "Winter Is Blue", "Leave Me", "How Do I Know", "Go Before Dawn", "Girl's Song In Winter", "Don't Believe", "17 Pink Sugar Elephants", "Someday", and "I Know".

Jon BurlingameMusic Of James Bond (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 35.00
Over the years, the music of the James Bond movies has become almost as notable as its stories and stars – not just the famous themes from John Barry, but also the participation of singers and groups as diverse as Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Madonna, and Adele! Author Jon Burlingame looks at the music of the films on a movie-by-movie basis – with chapters on the films that not only offer up stories behind the music, but also dig deeper into the scores as well – and sometimes offer up tales of sounds that never saw the light of day – like Frank Sinatra's proposed performance for Moonraker, the unused Eric Clapton guitar for License To Kill, and the possible Amy Winehouse music for Quantum Of Silence. The book includes a number of photos and album covers – and is 291 pages, hardcover, with lots of black and white images. Book

John CarpenterFog (2LP 180 gram colored vinyl) ... LP
Silva Screen, 1980. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... $37.99 39.99
Wonderful sounds from the great John Carpenter – one of those records that reminds us that his music is often just as important as the images he puts on the screen! Carpenter's music for The Fog follows nicely in his work for other films – particularly Halloween – in that it's got this slow-building style that often makes great use of keyboards – often used sparely, with a really spooky sort of energy – and even more space, and at slower speed than his other horror soundtracks! The style really fits the "fog" theme of the film! The soundtrack kicks off with the indispensable prologue from the movie – with the old man telling the ghost story with just the sparest of background keyboards – and other titles include "Theme From The Fog", "Rocks At Drakes' Bay", "Tommy Tells Of Ghost Ships", "Blake In The Sanctuary", "Dane", "An Evil Plan", "Morgue", "The Fog Approaches", "Revenge", "The Fog Enters Town" and more. 33 tracks on 2LPs!

Don CooperBless The Children ... CD
Roulette/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A folk funk classic from Don Cooper – a folksy player at heart, but one who always manages to bring a gentle groove to his music! The set's got a spare sound that's totally great – vocals and guitar from Don, plus second guitar from Elliot Randall – and support from other light instrumentation on flute and violin, used in ways to bring a lyrical sweetness to the tunes that we really love – not exactly in Nick Drake territory, but a similar sort of sweetening! Rhythms are often more heavy on the acoustic basslines than the drums, which gives them a bottom-up sort of groove – warm and mellow, but with wonderfully funky moments. Titles include "Bless The Children", "Mad George", "Tell Me About Her", "Willy Jean", "Sad-Eyed Queen Of The Mountain", "Brotherlove", "A New Gun", "Only A Dream", and "Tin Cans & Alleyways". CD

Pierre Dorge QuartetBlui ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Guitarist Pierre Dorge in a really unusual setting – not his larger orchestra, but a great small group with drummer Hamid Drake – who really helps bring out a whole new side of Dorge's music! The spare setting of the record also features Kirk Knuffe on cornet and Thommy Andersson on bass – and the players have this airy, open way of interacting – which really allows us to hear all these great sounds on guitar from Dorge, often with ringing tones that match perfectly with the cornet – but also bowed at other times, with a sonorous approach we especially love. Drake is great, as always – extremely sensitive in his approach to the drums – and titles include 'Wulla Wussa", "Blui", "Danza Reptilla", "Cha Cha Lupa", "Xongly", "Else Belse Bird Beard", and "Happy As A Cow".

FutureDS2 (deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Freebandz/Epic, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
The sequel to Future's 2011 mixtape/underground wave maker Dirty Sprite goes big – getting a quickly-arranged surprise release by Epic Records on just a few days notice in summer 2015! DS2 flips the script in a pretty big way from the preceding Epic album Honest – which was heavy with superstar guest appearances – by focusing almost squarely on Future's own distinctive self, except for a sharp spot by Drake on "Where Ya At". It's a wise move, and a strong, unrelenting effort. Includes "Thought It Was A Drought", "I Serve The Base", "Slave Master", "Blow A Bag", "Rotation", "Rich $ex" and more. Deluxe edition includes 5 bonus tracks: "Trap N*ggas", "The Percocet & Stripper Joint", "Kno The Meaning" and more. CD

Hu VibrationalBeautiful ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 2004. Used ... $4.99
Hu Vibrational brings a pounding instrumental mix of percussion, electronic beats, and African-inspired jazz! The loose group feature multi-instrumentalist Adam Rudolph (who has played with Pharoah Sanders, Herbie Hancock and Don Cherry to name a few) on all types of acoustic drums, shakers, bamboo flutes and well beyond, avant garde drummer Hamid Drake on the trap and more, plus experimental beat makers/left field hip hop figures like Daedelus and Carlos Nino/Ammon Contact. What's really nice about this album is how well it coalesces throughout – the crew really finds a hypnotic groove all the way through, and it's not at all the disconnected mess that lesser figures in the experimental community often come up with! A tight, inventive surprise from the ever reliable Soul Jazz label. Tracks include "Joyous", "We Walk", "Friends And Gardens", "Locomotion", "Feet On A Beautiful Planet", "Walkabout It", "In The Here", "Sunkissed", "Return To Earth" and more. CD

IrakereChekere Son ... LP
Milestone, 1979. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great early 80s session from Irakere – and one that really upgrades the funkier side of their groove! The approach is still that great mix of Cuban roots and Latin jazz we've always loved from the group – but there's also a bit tighter production, and great use of keyboards from Chuco Valdes – who spins out these funky fusion grooves that almost feel like some of the great west coast hybrids you'd get over at Fantasy Records during the 70s. In addition to work by Valdes on piano, organ, and keyboards – the set also features Paquito D'Rivera on saxes and Arturo Sandoval on trumpet and valve trombone – on titles that include "Cha Cha Cha", "Camaguey", "La Semilla", and "Quince Minutos".

JVC/Far Out (UK), 1980. Used ... $9.99
A rare Japanese-only session from Irakere – one that's almost tighter and more grooving than even the best of their Cuban work of the 70s! The album is beautifully recorded – with a clarity that lets the contributions of all players come through equally – not just Chucho Valdes' great work on both piano and keyboards, but also the horns of Arturo Sandoval and Jorge Varona on trumpets, tenor of Carlos Averhoff, and gu itar of Carlos Emilio Morales. The album was composed, arranged, and produced by Chikara Ueda – with a really unified feel that ties together some long jazzy tracks filled with searing solos! Titles include "Cuba Libre", "Sea Mail", "Que Pasa", "Encuentro", and "Gospelanza". CD

✨✧ IrakereIrakere ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial or slick, but free from some of the jarring shifts in styles that occurred before – and more in that sweet combination of rootsy percussion and Latin funk that made them great at their best previous moments! All players are great – and the lineup is almost a who's who of Cuban jazz at the time – with Chucho Valdes on piano and keyboards, Paquito D'Rivera on alto sax, and Arturo Sandoval on trumpet – plus guitar from Carlos Emilio Morales, percussion from Oscar Valdes, and tenor from Carlos Averhoff. The tracks were recorded live at the Montreux jazz festival – and titles include "Adagio", "Ilya", "Juana Mil Ciento", and the long "Misa Negra (The Black Mass)". LP, Vinyl record album

Kirk Knuffke TrioLittle Cross ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
A very cool trio set – one that has leader Kirk Knuffke on cornet, alongside Hammond from Jamie Saft and some excellent drums from Hamid Drake! The setting is maybe straighter than usual for Drake, but he really brings something special to the record – opening up with this looseness that's beautiful, and which really has the record stretching out openly from the start – in a blend of cornet and organ that's very original! Knuffke plays lots of somber tones on his horn, but with the crackle from Hamid, the album never gets overwhelmed in melancholy – even in some of the quieter moments – and here's hoping we hear more like this from the trio. Titles include "City Called Heaven", "Oh Lovely Appearance Of Death", "Poem", "Farmer Alfalfa", "Blues For Fred", "Donald's Wake", "Chinatown Suite", and "Little Cross". CD

Thelonious MonkIt's Monk Time ... CD
Columbia (France), 1967. Used ... $3.99
One of our favorite Thelonious Monk albums ever – a bare bones, no nonsense session that's filled with great work from tenorist Charlie Rouse! The record's filled with everything that's great about the Monk/Rouse team in these years – an incredible interplay between sax and piano, served up over the sorts of angular tunes that Monk had been putting forth for years, but somehow at a level that's even more perfect, more "Monkish" than before! Other members of the group are Butch Warren on bass and Ben Riley on drums – and titles include "Lulu's Back In Town", "Memories Of You", "Brake's Sake", "Stuffy Turkey", and "Shuffle Boil". CD
Also available It's Monk Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP 16.99
