✨✧ Budos BandMagus Mountain/Vertigo ... 7-inch
Daptone, 2015. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
One of those funky 45s you can tell will be great – just by looking at the surface of the grooves! The tune starts out all compressed and trebly at the start – with fuzzy guitar over a spare rhythm, which then gets full and funky once the cut gets going – but then takes this great break about two-thirds of the way through, relaxing its Ethio-styled funk for a sparer, spacey bit that features more cool guitar before getting funky again! "Vertigo" is even trippier – almost Ventures at the start, filtered through the psych generation – then much more Afro-styled in the rhythms, with these weird distorted screaming horns! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... LP
Cadet/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in between every song, done in a sparer folksy style that recalls Terry's roots in the Old Town scene in Chicago. At the time, Terry was making the transition from folk artist to soul singer – and he'd been picked up by Jerry Butler and The Dells as a promising young songwriter, one of the best talents of the second generation of Chicago soul stars. The record's a stripped-down affair that features a small group with Charles Stepney on harpsichord and organ, Callier on guitar, and backing vocals by Minnie Riperton, Shirley Wahls, and Kitty Haywood. The album kicks off with Terry's great little pop ditty "Ordinary Joe" – probably the catchiest song he ever wrote – then rolls into more somber titles like "Occasional Rain", "Do You Finally Need A Friend", "Golden Circle", and "Blues For Marcus". A totally unique album – and a prime example of the genius that was coming out of Chicago at the time! LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Free Soul anniversary series from Japan!)

Captain BeefheartSafe As Milk ... LP
Buddah, 1967. Very Good+ ... $99.99
Mindblowing music from Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – a record that's got plenty of garagey grit at the core, but which also has a heady freak rock vibe overall! The 1967 album really captures this perfect moment – one when so many artists like Don Van Vliet had their feet in older rockish modes, but were really tripping out with new ideas – able to get nice and freaky in the course of a short tune, yet still never lose a groove that really helped send the music home! In other words, there's nothing too hippieish about the record, and nothing that's ever too self-indulgent – yet the blend of organ, guitar, and drums is completely mindblowing – and as revolutionary today as it was back then. Titles include "Abba Zabba", "Dropout Boogie", "Zig Zag Wanderer", "Electricity", "Yellow Brick Road", "Grown So Ugly", and "Autumn's Child". LP, Vinyl record album

Ron CarterSpanish Blue ... CD
CTI (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About November 15, 2017
One of the massive Ron Carter albums from the mid 70s – and a set of 4 open-ended modal tracks that hit a similar Latin/but not Latin approach as the tracks on Coltrane's great Ole album. The group's a small one – featuring Carter on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, Jay Berliner on guitar, Ralph MacDonald on percussion, Roland Hanna on piano, and Hubert Laws on flute. Laws' playing is some of the best on the record – and his solos carry most of the songs nicely, a lot more nicely, in fact, than those on his own albums at the time. Leon Pendarvis makes a guest appearance playing electric piano on the cut "Arkansas", which is a bit funky – and other tunes include "El Noche Sol", "Sabado Sombrero", and "So What?". CD

ChihuahuaDescarga Cubana ... LP
Andale, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A great lost descarga session from the 60s – led by Chihuahua Martinez! Martinez plays both timbales and guiro on the sessions, fronting a group that includes Alberto Valdez on conga, Mike Martinez and Chivirico Davila on coro, Manfredo Lee on guiro, Elpidio Vazquez on piano, Elpidio Vazquez on bass and Pupy Legarreta on flute and violin. The set features some nice vocals by Goody Osvaldo – but there's also a key focus on the instrumentation, with quite a bit of flute in the mix. Nice stuff! Titles include "Descarga Chihuahua", "Te Necesito", "Guajiro Son", "Ritmo Ideal", "Echate Palla", "No, No No Te Voy A Querer", "Busco Una Chiquita" and "Me Voy Pa Moron". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisManchester Concert – Complete 1960 Live At The Free Trade Hall (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1963. Used 2 CDs ... $13.99
Quite an interesting slice of Miles Davis – live material from the brief time when Sonny Stitt was working with the Davis group in 1960! The pairing of Miles & Sonny has been heard a bit more famously (although still relatively obscurely) on a similar live set from Sweden, recorded around the same time – but this batch of tracks is from an even rarer date in Manchester – cut at the Free Trade Hall, on September 27, 1960. Stitt's working here with the group that included Paul Chambers, Wynton Kelly, and Jimmy Cobb on rhythm – and the tracks are mostly longish, with a few shorter numbers that are often focused most strongly on Miles' presence as lead soloist. Titles include "All Blues", "All Of You", "Walkin", "Autumn Leaves", "So What", "Stardust", and 2 takes of "Four". Added to these numbers are 3 more bonus tracks from a 1963 St Louis date that features George Coleman on tenor, with the Davis quintet that included Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams. These tracks are all quite long, and include "I Thought About You", "All Blues", and "Seven Steps To Heaven". CD

Miles DavisMiles Davis Live In Europe 1967 – The Bootleg Series Vol 1 (3CDs/DVD) ... CD
Columbia, 1967. Used 3CDs/DVD ... $22.99
Amazing live documents of Miles Davis and his incredible mid-to-late 60s quintet – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – complete concert recordings from Antwerp, Copenhagen and Paris on 3CDs seeing release for the first time ever, plus a DVD featuring the only known video footage of this group from the period! CD 1 features material from 10/28/68 in Antwerp, CD 2 on 11/2/67 in Copenhagen and 11/6/67 in Paris, with the latter concert continued on CD 3. This is landmark stuff here – a surprisingly rare opportunity to hear first rate live recordings of legendary material from the ESP, Miles Smiles, Sorcerer and Nefertiti albums – as well as brilliant revisits of vital earlier material. Includes live takes on "Agitation", "Foot Prints", "No Blues", "Gingerbread Boy", "On Green Dolphin Street", "The Theme", "Footprints", "Masqualero", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Walkin'" and more. The DVD starts with five numbers recorded on 11/7/67 in Karlzruhe, Germany: "Agitation", "Footprints", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Gingerbread Boy" and "The Theme". It concludes with material in Stockholm on 10/31/67: "Agitation", "Footprints", "'Round Midnight", "Gingerbread Boy" and "The Theme". CD

Blossom DearieMay I Come In ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A great album from Blossom Dearie – done with a soaring jazzy groove that makes it one of her best! Blossom's working here with Capitol arranger Jack Marshall – and he gives the album a much more upfront approach than some of Blossom's sparer sides for Verve – a groove, a bounce, and a sweeping sort of sound that works wonderfully with Dearie's sweetly-crafted vocals. We love the sound a lot, and wonder why Blossom hardly ever recorded in this mode again – save, perhaps, for her excellent British sides from the end of the 60s. The album includes a wonderful vocal version of Henry Mancini's "Charade", plus other great cuts that include "Love Is A Necessary Evil", "I Wish You Love", "In Love Again", "Quiet Nights", and "May I Come In".

Paquito D'Rivera & Louie RamirezTribute To Cal Tjader ... CD
Yemaya (Spain), 1987. New Copy ... $9.99 14.95
A fantastic tribute to the great Cal Tjader – and a set that features heavy contributions from the equally-wonderful Louie Ramirez – a vibist whose 60s work had as much influence on Latin sounds as the best records by Cal! The set was recorded in the late 80s, but has a vibe that's a lot more faithful to an old school Latin jazz sound than most from the time – nicely spare production, and a core group who really know how to both hit the right rhythms, and make the most of their solos! Louie plays both vibes and some keyboards – and Paquito D'Rivera adds in some alto solos – in a group that also features Mario Rivera ont enor and flute, Tony Barrero and Al Torrente on trumpets, Larry Farrel on trombone, and Jose Fajardo on flute. Most tracks are instrumental – but Yayo El Indio and Adalberto Santiago add in some occasional chorus vocals – and titles include "Latin Blues", "Milestones", "Mambo For Cal", "Noche De Salsa", "El Titere", and "Soul Sauce".

Edgewood Agents & OthersEdgewood – Compliled & Produced By Edgewood Agents ... CD
Atlanta, 2016. New Copy ... $8.99 13.99
Soulful grooves by Atlanta scene dream team Edgewood Agents and all star guests – with songs steeped in jazzy soul and some breezy Brazil influences – on one of the finer compilations of contemporary tunes we've heard in a couple years! The Edgewood Agents themselves are the trio of Khari Cabral Simmons (Jiva), Atlanta via London producer Daz-I-Kue (Bugz In The Attic) and Julius Speed (Ananda Project) – key scene players not only in Atlanta, but on a global level – and guest players include legendary singer Leroy Burgess, and on this set, no less impressive vocalists Chanda Leigh, Andre Rievers, Ricky Quinones, Brenda Nicole Moorer and more. The set is essentially a compilation with a core production team, but it really has the feel of a diverse collective group. Wonderful stuff! Titles include "Tonight We're Gonna", "Crensa", "Striving", "The In Between", "Amsterdam", "The Way I Do", "Journey Into Day (Massheen Mix)", "Hermosa" and more. CD

Roy EldridgeLittle Jazz (with Roy Eldridge Joue Poure La Danse) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (France), 1950/1951. New Copy ... $5.99 11.99
Great French material from trumpeter Roy Eldridge – a player who started in big bands, but sparkled even more in the "little jazz" world of small combos! The album features Roy's trumpet in some very hip groups – one a quintet with Don Byas on tenor and Claude Bolling on piano, another with Albert Ferreri on tenor and Raymond Fol on piano, and the last just a set of duets with pianist Bolling – which might be the coolest material on the set! Titles include "The Heat Is On", "Fireworks", "Hollywood Pastime", "Wild Man Blues", "Oh Shut Up", and "Une Petite Laitue". The CD also features the bonus album – Roy Eldridge Joue Pour La Danse – additional material recorded in Paris with help from some great American sidemen! Half the tracks feature Roy's trumpet in a quintet with Zoot Sims on tenor, Dick Hyman on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums – grooving in the relaxed, swing-based style that you'd expect from Eldridge's 50s work on Verve. Other titles feature a group with Gerald Wiggins on piano – and a few more feature a French combo with Benny Vasseur on trombone and Albert Ferrari on tenor sax! Tracks include "Nuts", "Goliath Bounce", "Black & Blue", "L'Isle Adam", and "Ain't No Flies On Me". CD

Don Ellis/Brad FiedelFrench Connection Collection (French Connection/French Connection II/Popeye Doyle) ... CD
La La Land, 1971/1975/1986. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Great thriller soundtracks back to back on one CD – the soundtracks for both French Connection films, both handled by funky jazzman Don Ellis – plus the even rarer score for the later Popeye Doyle film, by Brad Fiedel – packaged here with other rare bonus tracks too! The music by Don Ellis is really incredible – a real cut above other 70s cop and action soundtracks, with a dark edge that shows that Ellis had been listening to some of the hipper European soundtrack composers of the time, but was still also cool enough to kick in with a badass kind of groove whenever he could! The instrumentation on the tunes is very odd – familiar, yet askew – as trumpet, guitar, and keyboard bits come off with some very weird effects. The sound of Popeye Doyle is a bit different – given that the film was an 80s TV addition to the French Connection narrative – with Ed O'Neil in the lead role that was previously handled by Gene Hackman. But Brad Fiedel's score is still pretty nice – definitely more 80s in its instrumentation, but handled with a mode that echoes the Ellis years, with the flavor of a decade later. This 2CD package has way more material than the previous issue – with a total of 48 tracks from the first two films – and 29 more from Popeye Doyle – a whopping 77 tracks in all, with some great notes too!

Fairport ConventionWho Knows Where The Time Goes – The Essential Fairport Convention (3CD set) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
The genius of Fairport Convention knows no bounds – as the group were an ever-vibrant, ever-creative ensemble – often changing membership as much as they experimented with new styles – in a fantastic range that's very well captured on this 3CD set! Fairport are way more than the folk rock outfit that they're most easily identified as – because although the group certainly draws a lot from folk traditions, both ancient and modern, they bring so much more to their music as well – including especially compelling use of electric guitar and bass (the former on many of these tracks by the young Richard Thompson) – and transcendent vocals from Sandy Denny that really helps take the music to a new dimension. The set offers about a decade's worth of recordings by the group – 52 tracks in all – including some more unusual moments, and even some rarer tracks too – a great selection of titles that includes "Sir Patrick Spens", "Fotheringay", "Suzanne", "Chelsea Morning", "Ballad Of Easy Rider", "Quiet Joys Of Brotherhood", "Matty Groves", "Genesis Hall", "The Plainsman", "The Hens March Through The Midden & The Four Poster Bed", "Cropredy Capers", "When First Into This Country", "Farewell Farewell", "Angles Brown", "The Last Waltz", "John Lee", "Breakfast In Mayfair", "Sailor's Alphabet", and "Banks Of The Sweet Primroses".

Gianni FerrioAmico, Stammi Lontano Alemno Un Palmo (The Story Of Ben & Charlie) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. Used ... $9.99
A groovier than usual score for a spaghetti western – penned by Gianni Ferrio, and filled with some really great touches! The quality of the record comes across from the very first track – the English language vocal theme "Let It Rain Let It Pour", which almost has a Leonard Cohen sort of feel. And the following instrumental tunes change things up even more – bringing in a wide variety of complicated orchestrations that go past the usual western modes – and which feature some quirkier tunes and a few sparer, starker Italian-styled numbers – next to the more standard western dramatic fare. The CD features a total of 23 tracks in all– including a number of previously unissued bonus tracks – and titles include "El Compadrito", "Come Tanto Tempo Fa", "Gli Ultimi Due", "Controluce", "Sensazioni", "Ostinato Patetico", "Preludio E Azione", and "Ridendo E Scherzando".

Force Of NatureForces Of Nature ... CD
Dimid, 2002. Used ... $6.99
Not the Philly soul group from the mid 70s, but rather the pairing of DJ Kent and KZA, peddling modern, soulful electronic grooves, with break inspired beats and tapestries of electronic tones bubbling over top. While the better part of this disc is nearer to uptempo funk, the tracks we get open on are the more chilled atmospheric numbers. 11 tracks in all, including "Mystique", "Loopaddiction", "Aquatic", "Pathfinder" and "A Light Source".

Tsege Mariam GebruSpielt Eigene Komposition ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99
A beautiful set of solo piano work by Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou – pulled from one of the CDs in the Ethiopiques series of compilations, and probably the most delicately melodic material in the series! Pianist-composer Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou has an extraordinary personal history – she is a daughter of the heralded Ethiopian intellectual the Kentiba Guebrou, and lived many years as a nun who recorded rarely, and then only as a means to serve the poor. The solo piano compositions in this set were culled from rare albums recorded in the early 60s and 70s, plus a few later recordings from the early 90s. The music is gorgeous and difficult to describe – sweetly somber, melancholy, and befitting the solo performances. Titles include "Presentiment", "The Homeless Wanderer", "The Last Tears Of The Deceased", "Mad Man's Laughter", and "A Young Girl's Complaint". LP, Vinyl record album

Goblin (Simonetti/Morante/Pignatelli)Tenebre (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Cinevox/Nexus (Japan), 1982. Used ... $18.99
Not really a Goblin soundtrack, so much as a soundtrack project by some of the band's members – Claudio Simonetti, Massimo Morante, and Fabio Pignatelli – but still a nice one, with most of the group's classic elements firmly in place! The score's a great counterpart to this very odd Dario Argento film about a novelist turned murderer – and it's filled with lots of spacey keyboards, fuzzy guitars, and the kind of weird atmospheric bits you'd expect from an early 80s horror film! Titles include "Slow Cirkus", "Lesbo", "Flashing", "Tenebre", "Waiting Death", and "Jane Mirror Theme". CD

GonjasufiMandela Effect ... CD
Warp, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
An album that's kind of a cross-section of the Gonjasufi sound of late – given that it features some remixes and rework tracks – but a record that's still very much an important addition to his ever-growing catalog! The sound is spacey and laidback, but also has lots of dark currents – that fuzzy sense of distortion, used both on the keyboards and beats, and on the voices that flow through the tracks – which almost feel like some weird sort of outer space lyricism at times. Titles include "When I Die (IMD rmx)", "The Conspiracy (Santiro Romeri rmx)", "Show (Beth Gibbons/Rustin Man cover)", "Your Maker (Daddy G rmx)", "Afrikan Spaceship (Shabazz Palaces rework)", "Manic Depressant (Perera Elsewhere rmx)", "Etherwave (feat Tony Allen)", "Afrikan Spaceship (King Britt rms)", and "Your Maker (Anna Wise remaker)".

Bobby Hackett & Jack TeagardenLast Encounter – Hollywood Bowl 1963 ... CD
RLR (Spain), 1963. Used ... $4.99
The last live meeting of trumpeter Bobby Hackett and trombonist Jack Teagarden – two of the most successful trad jazz players of the 50s! The performance was recorded at the Hollywood Bowl, but is presented here via a radio broadcast with a bit of announcement at the beginning – and because of this fact, the sound is clearer than it might be for a CD like this – recorded professionally by a radio station, and not just by a fan in the audience with a microphone! Tracks are all longish, and the rest of the group features Bob McCracken on clarinet, Wayne Songer on alto sax, and Ray Sherman on piano – on titles that include "Muskrat Ramble", "When It's Sleepy Time Down South", "Fidgety Feet", "St James Infirmary", and "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues". Added to the CD are 6 more bonus tracks from another radio broadcast – this one fro Minneapolis in 1960, featuring Teagarden (without Hackett) in a group with Don Goldie on trumpet, Don Ewell on piano, and Henry Cuesta on clarinet. Titles include "Rockin Chair", "Basin Street Blues", "That's A Plenty", and "I Found A New Baby". CD
