Lightnin HopkinsBlues In My Bottle ... LP
Prestige/OBC, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One the best of the Lightnin Hopkins records for Prestige in the early 60s – unaccompanied here, just as a lot of his most ardent admirers prefer – and it really is deeply effective work! Truth be told, we love the records from the period in which he's got a spare bit of studio backing, too, but it's hard to make too strong of an argument in their favor after hearing a solo record as perfect as Blues In My Bottle. It's just his own acoustic guitar and voice, with a blues sound as big as the world. If he was singing and playing these songs on a back porch, the crickets would shut up and listen. Great stuff from legend who makes it sound easy! Includes "Buddy Brown's Blues", "Sail On, Little Girl, Sail On", "Jailhouse Blues", "Beans, Beans, Beans", "Catfish Blues", "DC-7", "My Grandpa Is Old, Too" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

ICP OrchestraJubilee Varia ... CD
Hat Hut (Switzerland), 1997. Used ... $16.99
The ICP Orchestra is a group that never fails to impress us – quite different at times than other ensembles of avant musicians, in that they're always able to find their own voice together as a unit – without ever giving into the egos of the players involved! There's always a mixture of depth and whimsy we can expect from ICP – and that really comes through on this recording – a batch of mostly longer tracks that offer up complex configurations of the instrumentalists, and richly expressive solos from key members. The lineup includes Misha Mengelberg on piano, Ab Baars on clarinet and tenor, Wolter Wierbos on trombone, Michael Moore on alto and clarinet, Thomas Herberer on trumpet, Ernst Reijseger and Tristan Honsiger on cellos, Ernst Glerum on bass, and Han Bennink on drums – and titles include the suites "Jubilee Varia" and "Jealousy", plus the shorter "Rollo 1".

Milt JacksonOlinga ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Milt Jackson's third album for CTI – part of a wonderful run that really helped him redefine his sound in the 70s! The album's got the electric approach you'd expect from the label – a great change from the sound of Jackson in the Modern Jazz Quartet, and a surprisingly great setting for his wonderful work on vibes! Milt's laidback style is perfect for the CTI mode – open, flowing, and filled with great tones – matched up here with sax work by Jimmy Heath, bass by Ron Carter, piano from Cedar Walton, and drums by Mickey Roker – a perfect setting to let loose in a way he rarely did on his earlier albums. The whole set's great – and titles include "Lost April", "Rerev", "The Metal Melter", "The Steel Bender", and "I'm Not So Sure". CD

Javanese Court GamelanJavanese Court Gamelan Volume 2 ... CD
Nonesuch (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
Incredible sounds from Java – where the use of the gamelan is often somewhat more brooding, and slower-paced than in Bali – and the sounds flow out in these gentle waves that are completely hypnotic! The album is wonderfully recorded by Robert E Brown – one of his key gamelan sides for Nonesuch Explorer – and the slow-building, shifting tones of the gongs, drums, and other percussion instruments are captured perfectly – as are the slightly reed moments voices that move between them with an eerie, otherworldly sort of sound – all incredibly haunting throughout. Every track is a treasure – and the album has two pieces that run for over 20 minutes, next to two shorter numbers – with titles that include "Ketawang Pspawarna", "Gending Ela Ela Kalibeber", and "Ayak Ayakan Kaloran".

Antonio Carlos JobimTerra Brasilis ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
Pretty great sounds from the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim – an album cut a bit later than his bossa years, but with a darkly sophisticated sound that's pretty darn compelling! The album features larger orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, and in a way, it's similar to the Jobim album on Decca from 1973 (aka Maita Pere) – in that it's got all the simple elements of Jobim's earlier bossa scoring, flushed out into moodier orchestral forms that we'd rank right up there with the modernist work of Gil Evans or Duke Ellington. A few cuts have a breezier sparer sound, and you'll hear English versions of some older bossa tunes. Titles include "Dreamer", "Canta Mais", "Olha Maria", "Wave", "Two Kites", "This Happy Madness", "Song Of The Sabia", "Estrada Do Sol", "Voce Vai Ver", "Off Key", and "Triste". CD

✨✧ Syl JohnsonComplete Mythology (4CD set) ... CD
Numero, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $31.99
A really really amazing package – the full story of the early years of Syl Johnson – one of the funkiest soul singers to ever come from Chicago! Syl's music has become the stuff of legend over the years – initially collected in rare funky 45s and two even rarer albums – then sampled heavily, compiled frequently, and spun out to a huge global audience that Johnson never had back in the day. Yet throughout the years, things were never done properly – and certainly with any sense of history or continuity that would unite the music – until now. The box and booklet alone are completely beautiful – the latter filled with vintage photos, personal recollections by Syl, and some great Numero writing – not to mention much-needed details on the recordings within. The CDs come in a very cool LP-styled jacket – and the whole thing slides together as sweetly as the funky music within. None of the Hi Records material is included – just material from labels that include Twilight/Twinight, King/Federal, Shama, TMP/Ting, Zachron, One-Derful, Cha Cha, Special Agent, and P-Vine – including a number of tracks never issued before.

✨✧ Kako Y Su ComboKako Y Su Combo ... CD
Alegre/Uniko (Canada), 1965. New Copy ... $12.99
Searing 60s work from the legendary Kako – the tight timbales player who took the Latin groove a lot farther than the generation of Tito Puente! Kako really had his ear to the streets – and comes across here with a sound that's a lot more smoking Spanish Harlem than some of his predecessors – very much in the sharp combo mode of some of Joe Cuba's records, which means that both the jazzy elements and the rhythms have a lot more punch! The set begins with the amazing "Descarga Kako" – a killer tune that really leads things off – and other highlights include the bass-heavy take on Louie Ramirez's "A Golpe De Timbal", a cooking Latin soul remake of "Cool Jerk", and the tightly snapping "Lo Que Sea". Other titles include "El Guapo", "Eloisa", and "La Chica De Barrio Obrero". CD

King Jammy & OthersKing Jammy's – Selector's Choice Vol 3 ... CD
Jammy's/VP, Early/Mid 80s. Used 2CD ... $14.99
We can't think of a better word to describe this selection than choice, as it bumps like jeep with a broken suspension on dirt road in the Jamaican countryside! This is part three of a four part series collecting the 80s output Lloyd King Jammy James, the man who elevated the Casio from musical toy to a sound bwoy killing beat machine! An essential musical portrait of the man who virtually single handedly transformed the Dancehall era and influenced the sound of an entire generation of Jamaican music, with the tracks arranged by rhythm. This volume features 40 cuts on 2 discs, including "Jump Up", "No Where Better Than Yard" and "Kill Dem Wid It" by Admiral Bailey, "Bam Bam" by Tiger, "Cassanova" by Frankie Paul, "Respect Due" by Little Twitch, "Wake Up" by Sister Charmaine, "Great Ambition" by Lt Stitchie, "I'm A Don" by Pinchers, "Must Haffi Get It" by Horace Andy, "Be Mine Tonight" by Admiral Tibet, "Gimme No Bun" by Little John, 'Get Up Stand Up And Rock" by Shabba Ranks, "DJ A Look Fi Mi" by Lecturer, "Duck Dance" by Red Dragon, "Bounce" by Flourgon, "Bad Bad Chake" by Chaka Demus, "Dibbi Dibbi Girl" by Daddy Lizard, "More Reality" by Ninja Man, "Duck Riddim" by Steely & Clevie and "Conquer Me" by Don Angelo.

✨✧ Kool & The GangKool Jazz ... LP
De-Lite, Early 70s. Very Good ... $5.99
A great album – even if most of the cuts are on other records! The set's designed to focus on the jazzier side of Kool & The Gang – and it sifts through the first few albums to come up with some of the more sophisticated (yet still totally funky!) numbers by the band, giving a good picture of the many sides of their talents, and also adding in a few other tracks that we haven't found on other records. The groove ranges from slow-dope and mellow, to choppy and funky, with plenty of hot breaks and classic hip hop samples. Titles include the monster jammer "Dujii", plus "Lucky For Me", "Sea Of Tranquility", "North East South West", "I Remember John W Coltrane", "Sombrero Sam", and "Breeze & Soul", a very tasty little jangly number!

AVI, 1977. Very Good (pic cover)... $2.99
"Le Spank" is probably the most successful track ever by this Rinder/Lewis side project – and for good reason, too! The cut's got a cool moogy groove that pops across the top nicely, a bit sparer than the rest of its disco contemporaries, and with a catchiness that's undeniable! This 12" version is over 10 minutes long, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Charles LloydDream Weaver ... CD
Collectables/Atlantic, 1966. Used ... $9.99
A classic set from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that really pushes forward all the experiments he'd begun in the Chico Hamilton group – and shows a bold move forward for rhythms in 60s jazz! The tracks are long, and spiral out wonderfully – but in ways that are different than those used by other creators of the time – like Eric Dolphy or John Coltrane. Even though leading the group on tenor and flute, Lloyd's got a real sense of rhythm to his playing – echoes of the Hamilton group – but set loose with a stellar quartet of younger players – including Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all perfect choices for inventive music like this! The standout cut is the amazing "Sombrero Sam", a tight little groover that we never tire of – and one that has Jarrett sounding much more in the pocket than you'd ever imagine – and other tracks include "Dream Weaver", "Autumn Sequence", and "Bird Flight".

Charles Lloyd & The MarvelsI Long To See You ... LP
Blue Note, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 25.98
A Blue Note debut from legendary reedman Charles Lloyd – who definitely wants to bring something new to his work on the label! The set features his Marvels combo – a quintet that features very prominent work from guitarist Bill Frisell, whose edgey tones here make for a very different sound than the use of guitar on some of Lloyd's recent records – especially as the group also features steel guitar from Greg Leisz, who shades things in with some washes of sound that really echo Frisell's tones too! The rest of the lineup features Reuben Rodgers on bass and Eric Harland on drums – and Lloyd plays both tenor and alto flute, with a warmth that really offsets some of the starker sounds of Frisell. The record features guest vocal work from Norah Jones and Willie Nelson – who sing on a song apiece – but the core appeal here is the interplay between Lloyd and guitar, but in a way that's very different than his 60s work with Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Of Course Of Course", "La Llorna", "Abide With Me", "Barche Lamsel", "All My Trials", and "Sombrero Sam". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny LytleLoop/New & Groovy ... CD
BGP (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer set that combines both of Johnny's rare albums cut for the tiny Tuba label in the mid 60s! The records both have a great funky vibes sound, with lots of tight drumming, and soulful bubbling organ grooves. These are very sought after in their original pressings, and both LPs usually fetch upwards of $40 when we get them in – and they fly right out the door as soon as they hit the web. Loop is the rarer of Johnny Lytle's two albums for the obscure Tuba label from Detroit. Johnny's classic trio, with Peppy Hinnant on organ, is backed by a larger group that features Wynton Kelly on piano and Willie Rodriguez on conga. New and Groovy is very nicely stripped down - and the focus of the album is on down-and-dirty groovers, perfect for the jazzy stepper set that still digs Lytle loads! Loads of short groovy steppin jazz vibes cuts, like "The Loop", "The Man", "The Snapper", "Selim", and way way more! CD

Henry ManciniTheme From Z & Other Film Music/Debut – The Philadelphia Orchestra Pops ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $16.99
A Henry Mancini double header – two albums back to back! First up is Theme From Z – cool Mancini work from the start of the 70s – a record that offers a nice step forward from his scoring styles of the 60s, with a slightly orchestral feel as well! The arrangements here are full, but still have a nice sort of focus – and include solos by players like Mancini on piano, Jimmy Rowles on electric calliope, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash on alto, and Art Smith on recorder. Some of the best tracks have a groovy feel that really fits the date of the record, while others have a more traditional soundtrack approach – and tunes include "Theme From Z", "Airport Love Theme", "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head", "A Man A Horse A Gun", "Patton Theme", and Jobim's "Love Theme From The Adventurers". Debut has Henry Mancini making his debut as a conductor of the Philadelphia Pops – a larger orchestra than you'll usually hear on most Manini albums, which allows Hank to really open up in some more sophisticated modes! The songs are mostly more serious Mancini compositions – with solos on flute, oboe, violin, harpsichord, and trumpet – and titles include "Beaver Valley 37", "Dream Of A Lifetime", "Drummer's Delight", "Speedy Gonzalez", and "Strings On Fire".

Curtis Mayfield & Linda CliffordRight Combination/Rapping ... CD
Curtom, 1972/1980. New Copy 2CDs ... $8.99 13.99
2 of Curtis rarer moments – back to back on a 2CD set! Right Combination is an album of duets that Curtis cut with rising disco star Linda Clifford – who by 1980 may well have been earning more money for Curtom than Curtis! The album's about half disco tracks, half soul duets in a Chicago mode – and arrangements are by Gil Askey and Norman Harris. Tracks include "Ain't No Love Lost", "It's Lovin Time", "Love's Sweet Sensation", "Between You Baby & Me", and "The Right Combination". Plus, there's about 10 extra cuts added to the album – including lots of rare numbers by Linda and a few clubby tracks by Curtis, non LP numbers! Rapping is a rare promo-only radio show LP that features an interview with Curtis Mayfield, interspersed with musical tracks like "Underground", "Hell Below", and "We Gotta Have Peace". Excellent stuff, with a very cool sound, and like tuning into a radio show on an AM station in the early 70s! CD

International Anthem, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
Ever-adventurous composer, arranger and coronet player Rob Mazurek teams up with similarly creative wanderer Emmett Kelly (Cairo Gang, Josh Abrams Natural Information Society and more)! Alien Flower Sutra finds the duo and their guest players crafting a pretty awesome mix of interstellar psych-jazz-folk with vocals and guitar – with lots of fuzzier, jazzier instrumental passages. Very cool stuff on International Anthem, which has quickly become one of Chicago's best indie labels for free thinking creative output! Mazurek handles the electronic treatments, synths and coronet, with Kelly's lyrics, voice and guitars, and accompanied by Guilherme Granado, Carlos Issam Thomas Rohrer and Brittany Mazurek. Includes "Back To The Ocean, Back To The Sea", "Android Love Cry", "Blackout", "Bright Nights Havoc", "I Untied My Wrists", "Of Time Wasted", "Remember Nothing", "Embryo Genesis", "We Are One" and "Overture Towards The Beginning Of The End Of Time".
