William OnyeaborHypertension ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 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".

Adnan OthmanBershukor – A Retrospective Of Hits By A Malaysian Pop Yeh Yeh Legend 1968 to 1971 ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $27.99
You might not be able to understand the lyrics, but you'll definitely be moved by the instant charm of Malaysian rocker Adnan Othman – a singer who works here in a groovy blend of fuzzy guitar, mod rhythms, and all the other great sounds we love from late 60s French and British tracks of the time! In fact, there may be more French elements at work here than some of the more typical Anglo-influenced singers in Southeast Asia at the time – especially those romping rhythms and jangly guitar lines of the yeh-yeh generation, which really get these tunes moving even before Othman comes in with his vocals. By the end of the set, Adnan's expanding his sound a bit – moving from the work with The Rhythmn Boys that takes up most of the collection, to singing with The Wanderers and Flamingoes – all documented nicely in the notes and images in the package. Titles include "Bila Kah Gembira", "Doa Ku", "Bershukor", "Sapu Tangan", "Hari Bahagia", "Berlenggang", "Merana", "Mormah", and "Hidupu Tambah Gembira". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great package – with a wonderful booklet of notes, too!)

Lee Perry & OthersMr Perry I Presume ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
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.

Gregory PorterIssues Of Life – Features & Remixes ... CD
Membran (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A great companion to all the full length albums from the mighty Gregory Porter – as this special set brings together his side projects, appearances with other artists, and remixes as well! We love Porter's own records – and honestly feel that he's one of the freshest jazz vocal talents to come along in years – but he's also great when working in new formats too, and really brings his a-game to just about any other setting he approaches! Most of the music here is still in the jazz-based style of Porter's other records, but a few tracks are a bit more groove-heavy too – yet never in a way that's disrespectful of the vocals, or Gregory's core contributions. Titles include "About The Children" and "Be My Monster Love" done with David Murray, "Moanin (radio)" with Paul Zauner's Blue Brass, "Issues Of Life", "She's Gone", and "Just In Time" with Zbonics, "Song Of The Wind" by M1/Brian Jackson – plus remixes that include "1960 What (Opolopo kick & bass rerub)" and "She Danced Across The Floor (Automart rmx)".

✨✧ Dewey RedmanEar Of The Behearer ... CD
Impulse, 1973. Used ... $14.99
One of the few albums as a leader recorded by Dewey Redman during the years of his strongest contributions to avant garde jazz – a post-Coltrane, post-Ayler session that's filled with touches of the spiritualism that can be found in the work of other Impulse labelmates, such as Marion Brown or Archie Shepp. In a way, the album's almost a "new thing" record recorded after the new thing era – not too out, but tentatively exploratory, and expressing some of the ideals of the 70s loft jazz scene. Players include Ted Daniel on trumpet, Jane Robertson on cello, Sirone on bass, and Danny Johnson on percussion – and titles include "Walls-Bridges", "Innerconnection", "Boody", and "Sunlanding". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "QOW", "Funcitydues", "Joie De Vivre", and "Seeds & Deeds". CD

Bernd Reiter with Eric Alexander & Helmut KagererWorkout – A Tribute To Hank Mobley & Grant Green ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
A tremendous tribute to the classic Blue Note team of Hank Mobley and Grant Green – served up here with the tenor of Eric Alexander and guitar of Helmut Kagerer! Mobley and Green were a hell of a combo back in the day – a team that graced some of our favorite records ever for Blue Note – and while it might be a mountainous challenge to try to take on that legacy, this duo do a pretty great job – especially Alexander, whose soulful, hard-blown tenor seems born for the project! Kagerer's pretty great, too – maybe a bit more chromatic than Green at times, but in ways that also show his development as his time at Blue Note went on – and almost in ways that recall some of Mobley's rare use of other guitarists too. The rest of the group features Olivier Hutman on piano, Viktor Nyberg on bass, and Bernd Reiter on drums – and titles include "Getting & Jetting", "Workout", "Super Jet", "Uh Huh", and "I Want To Hold Your Hand".

Marku RibasSamba ... CD
Tratore (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
A great return to form from the legendary Marku Ribas – an artist we love for his Brazilian funky classics of the 70s – still sounding great after all these years! Marku's always had a very deep vocal approach – at the bottom end of the sonic spectrum, which not only makes for a very haunting presentation of the lyrics, but also puts his singing in a space that's very close to the basslines in the music – which often make older Ribas records feel like they're growing up out of the ground in a sweet flurry of rhythms and soul! This set's got Marku working in a slightly straighter samba mode, but one that's still very much his own – as most of the tracks are originals, and delivered with that incredible voice that's unlike anyone else we can think of. Instrumentation is by a cool combo of younger players – with percussion, cavaquinho, seven-string guitar, and trombone – and titles include "Cabana E Calor", "Samba De Lira", "500 Anos", "Choro Pro Marku", "Amar E Direito", "Zabele E Mae D'Agua", "Se A Onca Morrer", and "Jeito De Felicidade".

Sammy with Jiro Inagaki & Soul MediaWoman Robinson Crusoe – Rock Steady ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99
Funky grooves from Jiro Inagaki and his Soul Media combo – and some cool vocals from 70s Japanese singer Sammy – a pretty enigmatic talent who really makes her mark with this record! The album's less island-styled than you might guess from the title or cover – and instead, it mixes these spacious vocal passages with more forceful backings from Soul Media – a groove that's got the same blend of female lead and funkier elements that you might find in a Serge Gainsbourg/Jane Birkin project – although the lyrics here are mostly in Japanese! The set features a killer version of Aretha Franklin's "Rock Steady", with really wild vocals and drums – plus the cuts "Memories Of That Guy", "So High", "Wanderer's Lullaby", "The In & Outer Stomp & Shouter", "Nobody Loves Me", and "My Sweet Dolls". LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Deep Jazz Reality series! Fantastic Japanese pressing – heavy vinyl and cover! Japanese 2016 Record Store Day release, too.)

Tony Scott & Jimmy KnepperFree Blown Jazz ... LP
Carlton, Late 50s. Very Good ... $9.99
One of Tony Scott's best records from the time, and an excellent batch of tracks that really shows the direction he would head in the 60s. Scott's solos are incredibly open-ended – and he's backed by a group of hip players that includes Henry Grimes, Bill Evans, Paul Motian, and Sahib Shihab. Knepper's pretty good, too – but he lacks some of the fire he has in his recordings with Mingus. Titles include "The Chant", "The Explorer", "Body & Soul", and "Portrait Of Ravi", which shows his early interest in Latin music. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing with deep groove)

✨✧ 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".

Sonic YouthGoo (with download) ... LP
DGC/Universal, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
Sonic Youth's major label debut – which is, somewhat perversely, less insistently accessible as the preceding Daydream Nation – with slow-building guitar squalls and oddball noise pop in just about equal measure! Goo is self-produced, with some assistance from their fellow Geffen newbie (circa '90) J Mascis and Don Fleming. Includes the absolute classic "Dirty Boots", plus "Tunic", "Kool Thing", "Disappearer", "My Friend Goo" and "Scooter and Jinx".Looking back, it's a pretty inspired moment in major label rock & roll history – where outsider creatives infiltrated the mainstream and changed the way things work for a decade + to come!
