DjavanAlumbramento ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... On June 10, 2015
A great album from Djavan – quite ambitious and sophisticated, but in a way that leans heavily on his amazing vocals and great songwriting skills! As on most of his best albums from the time, he's working with a small core group of jazz players – sensitive musicians who provide some incredible accompaniment to his songs – in ways that are almost a second generation take on the styles first laid out by Milton Nascimento a few years before, but at even deeper levels. The record features a guest appearance by Chico Buarque, and tracks include "A Rosa", "Tem Boi Na Linha", "Sim Ou Nao", "Aquele Um", "Meu Bem Querer", and "Sururu De Capote". CD

Dream SyndicateDays Of Wine & Roses ... CD
Warner/Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... On June 16, 2015
The essential first album from Dream Syndicate – one of the great rock albums of it's time and the very foundation for many other great albums to follow! Moody and real, be it in the sparer, more haunting moments and the more straight-forwardly rockin' parts – brilliant, transcendent stuff. Titles include "Tell Me When It's Over", "Definitely Clean", "That's What You Always Say", "Wen You Smile", "Until Lately", "The Days Of Wine And Roses" and more. CD

Gilberto Gil & Jorge BenGil E Jorge ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... On June 10, 2015
Fantastic! Normally this sort of "big pop star-meets-big pop star" album is nothing to write home about – but this killer double-length set by Gilberto Gil and Jorge Ben features both artists at the top of their form, playing in stripped-down styles that sum up their best work of the 70s. A highlight of the set is a 14 minute reading of Ben's famous "Taj Mahal" track, done in a sparer studio setting than the original, with a haunting groove, and great vocals by both singers. Other tracks include "Sarro", "Quem Mandou", "Nega", and "Meu Glorioso Sao Cristvao". Great stuff, and very long, too! CD

Girls From Bahia (Quarteto em Cy)Revolucion Con Brasilia ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... About February 15, 2015 (delayed)
A rare American session from the Quarteto Em Cy – working here under the name of The Girls From Bahia, and singing in English as well as Portuguese! The album's got a sound that's quite similar to the group's classic 60s Brazilian records on Elenco – thanks to bossa-heavy backings from Oscar Castro Neves – and even when singing in a second language, the girls do a really great job of hitting the sweetest, warmest harmony notes they can – that trademark vocal brilliance that made them such a huge act back in Brazil! Sonny Burke produced, but he clearly gives plenty of space to Oscar – as the album's got little of his usual Warner touches – and instead shows that when you've got the right talent in the studio, you can do a pretty good job of recording bossa in the US. Titles include "Berimbau", "Tem Mais Samba", "Edmundo (In The Mood)", "Lai Ladaia", Morrer De Amor", "Sunny Side Of The Street", "Road To Nowhere", "Old Piano Roll Blues", "The Day It Rained", "E Nada Mais", "Manhattan", "Dindi", and "A Banda (Parade)".

HeptonesNight Food/Party Time ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976/1977. New Copy ... On July 1, 2015
CD two-fer combining the classic 70s Heptones sides Night Food and Party Time, two of the band's strongest albums. The first set was cut at Harry J's, and is a bit more produced than some of their earlier sides, but has some great vocal harmonies and updates of awesome Studio One rhythms, which originated with bass player and lead singer Leroy Sibbles. The follow up, Party Time, finds the Heptones teaming up with Lee Perry for a wonderful set laid down at the legendary Black Ark, with Sibbles' always great songwriting over a set of nice roots rhythms laid down by Boris Gardiner, Winston Wright, Mikey Boo, Willie Lindo and others. Includes "Country Boy", "Book Of Rules", "Love Won't Come Easy", "Fatty Fatty" and "Mama Say", "Party Time", "Crying Over You", "I Shall Be Released", "Why Must I" and "Sufferer's Time", 20 tracks in all.

Friedrich Gulda/Albert GolowinDonau So Blue ... CD
MPS/Edel (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the weirdest records we've ever heard from pianist Friedrich Gulda – an unusual session that supposedly features vocals from Albert Golowin, who the notes tell us is actually Gulda himself! The core instrumentation is a trio with Gulda on some of the bluest, most soulful piano we've ever heard – with bass from JA Rettenbacher and drums from Manfred Josel – and the vocals on the tracks are all in German, but in this weird melancholy sort of way – almost an ironic take on jazz singing, but oddly compelling as well – especially for the weird way the tones come out on the best numbers. The record is experimental MPS at its best – and titles include "Donau So Blue", "Requiem", "Andrerseits", "Die Schone Musi", and "Hau Di In Gatsch". CD

Sabu MartinezJazz Espagnole ... LP
Alegre, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A masterpiece of Latin jazz – and one of the truest expressions of the genre we can think of! The album's quite unique, especially for the time – a spare, stripped-down presentation of Latin-influenced jazz – a sound that has its roots in the cubop experiments of a decade before, but which comes off here with even more dynamic energy! Sabu's sound is quite different from the more staid styles of the cha cha/charanga generation at the time of this recording – and thanks to his own heavy conga, percussion from Louie Ramirez, trumpet from Marty Sheller, and alto sax from Bobby Porcelli, the whole album bristles with electricity and excitement. The horn solos are given plenty of room to do their thing – space you might find more on Blue Note or Prestige – and Sabu adds in some great sparer percussion bits too. Titles include "The Oracle", "Breakin' It In", "Flipping", "Nica's Dream", "Otra Vez", and lots lots more great ones! LP, Vinyl record album

Caetano VelosoTotalmente Demais – Ao Vivo ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic live set from Caetano Veloso – done in a very spare style, like some of his best work of the time! The album's a great return to basics after use of a rock band on some of Veloso's previous records – and features just Caetano's magical vocals with solo guitar backing – spreading out with this powerful vibe that's even more moving than his music with larger arrangements! The overall sound is fantastic – with a great recording quality that far surpasses many earlier Brazilian live albums – and the record ranks up there with spare mid 70s masterpieces, like Qualquer Coisa or Bicho. Loads of nice tracks – including "Pra Que Mentir", "Amanha", "Todo O Amor Que Houver Nessa Vida", "Dom De Iludir", "O Quereres", and "Kalu". CD

✨✧ Hamiet BluiettBearer Of The Holy Flame ... CD
Black Fire, 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set from Hamiet Bluiett – almost back to his roots in the St Louis underground scene, as the album's a live recording of long spiritual jazz tracks, arguably a lot more compelling than most of Bluiett's studio work from the time! The album was recorded at Sweet Basil in 1983 – with a group that features John Hicks on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, Marvin Smitty Smith on drums, and Chief Bey playing some extra African percussion. Bluiett's tone is wonderful – deep and round, but also raspy, almost in the manner of Pharoah Sanders – and the group plays an incredible version of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", a nice take on Curtis Lundy's "Gumbo", and the cuts "Song Song", "Ebu", and "Headless Blues".

✨✧ David BowieLow (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Ryko, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". Features great bonus tracks – "Some Are", "Sound & Vision (rmx)", and "All Saints". CD

✨✧ David BoykinMicrocosmic Sound Orchestra – Live At The Spareroom ... CD
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2005. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most ambitious recordings to date from Chicago improviser David Boykin – a large group performance done in the freely collaborative spirit of older AACM recordings! There's a relaxed, spontaneous vibe here that we really love – as Boykin and other Chicago players work through a variety of sound textures and musical ideas, using a range of instruments that runs from conventional saxes, flute, and guitar, to more unusual sounds from nose flute, bible harp, kitchen bowls, shenai, and many other less-common instruments. The entire work runs for 70 minutes in length, divided up into 10 shorter segments. CD

✨✧ Captain BeefheartSafe As Milk ... LP
Buddah, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... LP
CTI, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 "El Noche Sol".

Lumiar (Brazil), 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the earlier "tribute" series in the Lumiar catalog, and like the others, a loving tribute to a genius of Brazilian music, performed by some of the greatest artists of the past 25 years. This 20 track set includes lots of great versions of Caymmi's songs, including "Das Rosas" by Ivan Lins, "O Bem Do Mar" by Tom Jobim, "E Doce Morrer No Mar" by Ney Matogrosso, "Saudade Da Bahia" by Os Cariocas, "Saudade" by Jards Macale, "Canto De Nana" by MPB4, "Funeral" by Tom Ze, "Eu Nao Tenho Onde Morar" by Luiz Melodia, and "Sargaco Mar" by Caymmi's son Dori.

Specialty, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's a well-known fact that before Sam Cooke went into soul music, he was cutting some incredible work with the Soul Stirrers gospel quintet – work that was every bit as soulful and sexy as his pop hits, perhaps more so, given the supposedly restrained nature of the setting. This album brings together some very nice numbers from Sam's days with the group! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisMiles Davis Live In Europe 1967 – The Bootleg Series Vol 1 (3CDs/DVD) ... CD
Columbia, 1967. Used 3CDs/DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Miles DavisSorcerer ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another bold new direction for the legendary Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that has some of the angular styles of earlier albums, but also a bit more of the flowing grace to come in the electric years! A key illustration of this is the leadoff track "Prince Of Darkness" – which has a fluid sensibility that still never fails to floor us, even all these many decades later! The rest of the tracks are equally great – even when subtle – and by this point, the group of Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams were well earning their acclaim as one of the most groundbreaking groups in jazz. Titles include "Prince Of Darkness", "Masqualero", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "Vonetta" – plus the odd inclusion of a vocal version of "Nothing Like You" – recorded 5 years before with singer Bob Dorough and arranger Gil Evans! The tune's an odd cap to this otherwise cohesive set – but we love it plenty too, and it somehow oddly fits! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 360 sound stereo pressing – sealed inside inner sleeve! Cover has some light wear, but is very nice too.)

✨✧ Blossom DearieMay I Come In? ... CD
Capitol, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
