Novos BaianosNovos Baianos (aka Linguagem Do Alunte) ... CD
Continental/Bomba (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Rootsy samba and hipper 70s MPB influences – all filtered down into a really unique little groove! Back in these early years, Novos Baianos had an inventive sound that was really a standout in 70s Brazilian music – a sense of earnest, open-handed music making that was something of a legacy from the Tropicalia years – but one that also carried with it some of the more hippie-dippy influences in the Brazilian underground of the early 70s! The style here is a bit sparer and more acoustic than on some of the group's other records – often comprised from samba percussion and guitar, but occasionally augmented by more electric instrumentation, as well as some folkloric flute! Titles include "Reis Da Bola", "Isabel", "Bolado", "Miragem", "Fala Tamborim", "Ao Poeta", and "Eu Sou O Caso Deles". CD

Chico O'FarrillChico's Cha Cha Cha ... LP
Palladium (Spain), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Classic 50s work by this legendary Latin arranger and composer – and a hard-hitting set of tracks played by his All Star Cuban Band that included Alfredo "Chocolate" Armenteros, Santaiago Penlaver, Emilio Penlaver, Peruchin, and Jose Herrera. The material is nearly all Cha Cha oriented – and tracks include "Amapola", "El Chocolo", "El Bodeguero", "Chico's Cha Cha Cha", and "Rock n Roll Cha Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

William OnyeaborHypertension ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.99
William Onyeabor's looking pretty chilled out on the cover – especially given the Hypertension title of the record – a cool, confident dude decked out in a velvet jacket and sombrero – able to carry off that look as well as he can carry the grooves on the set! In anyone else's hands, this music might be somewhat cheesy – but Onyebor's a guy who can take lean keyboard lines, and weave them into a much deeper Afro Funk sound – drawing on all the best modes of the 70s, and avoiding the cliches of the 80s – and coming up with a very unique groove in the process. It helps that there's plenty of righteous spirit in his music and message – as you'll hear on titles that include "Hypertension", "Politicians", "The Moon & The Sun", and "Papa Na Mama".

✨✧ Orchestra Gong KebyarBali – Gamelon Music From Sebatu ... LP
Archiv Produktion (Germany), Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A beautiful album of gamelan music recorded in Bali in the early 70s – featuring four long tracks, all of sacred origin. The quality of the tunes features that slower, sparer quality of gamelan work that often differentiates Balinese gamelan music from Javanese – and the record is one of the most haunting releases you'll find of the genre, better than most of the more-available Nonesuch recordings. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a factory sticker on the front.)

Charlie PalmieriLet's Dance The Charanga! ... LP
United Artists, 1960. Very Good+ ... $33.99
Rare early Charlie Palmieri record, and one of the great Latin records to come out on United Artists in the early 60's. Charlie leads a tight little orchestra that includes a lot of the top players that he was playing with at the time, with vocals by Victor Aviles and Leonel Bravet, percussion by John Palomo, Juliun Cabrera and Joseph Rodriguez, and Johnny Pacheco on flute. Pacheco's contributions really make the album, with his stand out contributions to the record's tight pachanga sound. The set focuses on the sort of material that Pacheco and Palmieri were cutting for labels like Alegre during the early 60s – with 12 numbers in all, including the tracks "Domino", "Discarga", "Tema De La Duboney", "Moonlight Cocktail", "Ay Que Mate", "Comme Ci Comme Ca", "Bruca Manigua", "The Gaucho Serenade" and "Chun Ko (Cha Ca Cha)".

William ParkerCentering – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1987 (6CD set) ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 6 CDs ... $74.99
An amazing collection of music from legendary bassist William Parker – 6 CDs' worth of performances, all of them unreleased, packaged together in a limited edition box set with a detailed booklet as well! The scope of the sounds is amazing – almost like finding the full career of a jazz musician in one space – even though it's only a slice of the rich contributions that Parker has made to music over his decades in jazz! A number of the tracks features important large ensembles that push forward ideas from the loft jazz generation – with players who include Daniel Carter on saxes, David S Ware on tenor, Jemeel Moondoc on alto, Charles Tyler on baritone, Roy Campbell and Raphe Malik on trumpets, Billy Bang on violin, and Rashid Bakr and Dennis Charles on drums. Other tracks feature sparer pairings that are especially haunting – duets between Parker's bass and the alto and trumpet of Daniel Carter, a trio with David S Ware on tenor and Dennis Charles on drums, and two long duo tracks with tenorist Charles Gayle! The whole thing's amazing – worth far more in music than its hefty price tag – and a huge discovery throughout! CD

Lee Perry & OthersMr Perry I Presume ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A wealth of unreleased tracks and unreleased mixes from the studios of the mighty Lee Scratch Perry – material that was mostly recorded during a very fruitful time in the mid 70s, when Lee was turning out a fair bit of tracks that were only issued on one-off dub plates, to be spun by only the hippest sound systems in Kingston and London! Material of this nature is often nicely offbeat – no easy hooks or more commercial elements, and instead the kind of creative approach to overall sound that makes every aspect of a tune worth opening up into play – from the vocals to the rhythms, to the production. Titles include "Ethiopia Land" by Peter & Paul, "Lay Beside You" by Joy White, "Jah I" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Word (acapella)" by The Gatherers, "War & Peace" by The Upsetters, "Keep On Moving" by Augustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Keep On Trying" by Susan & Bunny", and "Living My Life" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters.

Piero PiccioniMinnesota Clay ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
We haven't heard that many western soundtracks from Piero Piccioni over the years – and we've gotta admit that this one's pretty darn compelling! There's definitely a western flavor to the music, but the set also shows plenty traces of Piccioni's early 60s jazz scoring as well – not straight jazz, but with the kind of horn passages and larger arrangements we know from Piero's work of that nature – mixed with more brooding or dramatic passages to fit the western theme. Production often makes good use of echo – especially around the basslines – which helps the sound crescendo nicely, when needed! Titles include "Minnesota Sky", "Sidewinder", "Sombrero", "Long Neck", "Jackie", "Saddle Sack", and "River Bed". LP, Vinyl record album

Daniel PonceNew York Now! ... LP
Celluloid, 1983. Near Mint- ... $12.99
A stripped-down rootsy session – similar to some of the sparer Afro-Cuban traditionalist sides that were coming out of New York in the early 80s. Ponce put the set together, and other players include Paquito D'Rivera, Jose Trapaga, Joe De Jesus, Nelson Rodriguez, and Bill Laswell. Most tracks feature spare conga and percussion jams – and titles include "Basta De Cuentos", "Invacion De 80", "Cojelo Suave", "Africa Contemporanea", and "Solo Para Ti". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chano Pozo & Arsenio RodriguezLegendary Sessions ... CD
Tumbao (Spain), 1953. Used ... $16.99
Chano Pozo is best known as the conga player who helped Dizzy Gillespie get into his Afro Cuban bebop bag in the late 40's. Although Pozo died at a tragically young age, he left a strong mark on Latin music that still resonates today. This CD features a number of recordings that Pozo cut with Cuban guitarist Arsenio Rodriguez in the 40's when Rodriguez was visiting New York, plus a number of records taht Rodriguez made on a later visit to the US. The sound is very raw, with a tight early Afro Cuban groove, and the kind of Latin jazz sound that the two players helped to establish. Tracks include "Rhumba En Swing", "Seven Seven", "Tocoloro", "Paso En Tampa", and "Tintorera Ya Llego". CD

Ismael QuintanaIsmael Quintana ... CD
Vaya, 1974. New Copy ... $9.99 13.98
A stunning 70s album from the great Ismael Quintana – a singer who first rose to fame with Eddie Palmieri in the 60s, and who maybe gets an even greater sound on this solo set! Quintana's got one of the most expressive styles of the New York scene – a way of inflecting his notes to convey rich emotion, but without ever going too far over the top – almost more influenced by the great European singers of the generation before, instead of some of the Latin soul artists of his scene – but with a vibe that's surprisingly lean and effective throughout. The album's overflowing with instrumental talent, too – including Papo Lucca and Mark Dimond on piano, Barry Rogers on trombone, Luis Perico Ortiz on trumpet, Bobby Valentin on bass, and Nicky Marrero on timbales – and titles include "Mi Debilidad", "Mai Biandita", "Traigo La Llave", "No Lo Dejes Asi", and "La Blusita Colora".

Sun RaOuter Spaceways Incorporated ... LP
ORG, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 24.98
A classic Sun Ra set from the late 60s – recorded in New York in 1968, and featuring a lineup that includes Kwami Hadi on trumpet, Marshall Allen and Danny Davis on alto and flute, John Gilmore on tenor and drums, and Pat Patrick on baritone and flute – all classic players who are the height of their most expressive powers here! The sound is quite "out" overall – really jamming in an almost free jazz sort of way at times – showing the growing boldness and confidence of the Arkestra, as they keep ahead of the pack of all the younger artists they've inspired by this point in their career. Titles include "Saturn", "Song of the Sparer", "Spontaneous Simplicity", and "Outerspaceways Incorporated". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin & Bob BrookmeyerSamba Para Dos ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
A great lost groover on Verve – recorded during the heyday of the label's bossa years with Stan Getz! The record features Bob Brookmeyer fronting a large group arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin – soloing over the top, while Lalo comes up with sparkling bossa-tinged grooves that are in the spirit of his best soundtrack work of the mid 60s. Brookmeyer's playing is great too – very different than his sparer, modernist work on other records – and very much in the tradition of Brazilian trombone players who were a key force in bossa jazz at the time. The set includes one long original, "Samba Para Dos", plus shorter standards like "My Funny Valentine", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You" – all taken in great jazzy bossa versions!

Gil Scott-HeronFree Will (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style".

SorcerersSorcerers ... CD
ATA (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
A contemporary record, but one we'd rank right up there with the moodiest, most exotic African funk albums of the 70s – especially the gems we've discovered through the Ethiopiques series! These guys play in a style that certainly references Ethiopian reeds and keyboard work of the 70s, but with a groove that's even funkier too – an understanding of the possibilities of a deep funk combo, but expressed through a much richer, more organic vibe – so that nothing's ever forced or faked at all, and the music is wonderfully captivating throughout. Production is perfect for this sort of set – and titles include "Pinch Of The Death Nerve", "Viking Of 5th Avenue", "Cave Of Brahma", "Night Of The Sorcerer", and "Suur Toll". CD

Methode Rhythme Vinyles, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
The Soul Surfers serve up an even more massive part 2 to their "Garcia Brother" cut – complete with this cool funky sitar-styled guitar over the drums – which brings a hip exotic vibe to the instrumental, while the Hammond swirls away over the top! "Mizra" is a remake of an old 60s tune by Nino Ferrer – done here as an instrumental, and again with more great organ in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record
