VariousWonder Of Stevie 3 – Presented By DJ Spinna ... LP
BBE (UK), 1970s/2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 27.99
An incredible collection of Stevie Wonder cover versions – different versions of familiar tunes, but ones that really manage to sparkle with all the righteous soul of the Stevie himself! It's been over a decade since DJ Spinna brought us the last version of his Wonder Of Stevie series – and during that time, he's managed to come up with a huge amount of great tracks that make the whole thing go way way deeper than before – not just cuts that copy the Wonder mode, but which seem to draw strong inspiration from its genius, and really soar to the skies! Much of the music here resonates with a charm that's located around the years of albums like Music Of My Mind and Innervisions, with all the jazzy currents that might imply – and some cuts are 70s vintage, others are more contemporary. Titles include "Bird Of Beauty" by US Atlantic First Navy Show Band, "It's My Pleasure" by Billy Preston, "Love's In Need Of Love Today" by John Minnis Big Bone Band, "As" by Tony Sherman, "Buttercup" by Jackson 5, "Have A Talk With God" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me" by Quincy Jones, "Golden Lady" by Reel People with Tony Momrelle, "If You Don't Love Me" by GC Cameron, "If She Breaks Your Heart Again" by Foreign Exchange, "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" by Black Sugar, "Go Home" by Jrod Indigo, and "Make My Water Boil" by David Ruffin.

Juhani AaltonenEtiquette ... LP
Love/Svart (Finland), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Freely creative work from Finnish saxophonist Juhani Aaltonen – easily one of the most "out" sessions we've heard on the Love label, but also a record that has some of the strongly soulful undercurrents as other Love sessions. Juhani's working here with a shifting array of musicians on each track – sometimes playing in a spare or solo mode, other times stepping out with a fuller group. Drummer Edward Vesala turns in excellent work on nearly every track on the set – playing forcefully, yet spaciously alongside Aaltonen's bold lines on tenor sax and flute – and other instrumentation includes guitar, viola, and moog. The set's mostly acoustic, with a few electric touches from time to time – and tracks include "Fountain", "But Not For Me", "Summer", "Bhanki", "Perhaps", and "Ettiquette". LP, Vinyl record album

Fille Qui MousseSe Taire Pour Une Femme Trop Belle (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Monster Melodies (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
One of the most far-out French groups we've ever heard – a freely jamming group who are in their very own space away from the typical prog or psych of the time! At some level, these guys are almost like an avant jazz group – given that there's no vocals at all on the record, and these guys jam pretty openly. Yet the instrumentation is also more rockish, too – lots of guitar, electric bass, and drums – although the instruments are often used in ways that are farther from melodic, making some ultra-cool sounds in some of the odder moments. The whole thing almost feels like some of the few rock outings from BYG/Actuel – and titles include "Resistance Instinctive", "Transplantation", "L'Eau Etait Vitage", "Cantate Disparate", and "Esplanade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful red marbled vinyl!)

Moving Gelatine PlatesMoving Gelatine Plates (180 gram colored vinyl pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Monster Melodies (France), Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
Unreleased material from the legendary Moving Gelatine Plates – one of the coolest French groups of the 70s, and one who freely skirted prog, avant jazz, and psych styles – all while holding very much to their own course of action! The sound here is very representative of that French way of thumbing their nose at all the rest of the other scenes going down on the continent at the time – neither needing commercial recognition, or even trying to fit into any sort of easy label or style – especially given the way that these guys still have an almost communal way of working together on some of the late 70s sides here, at a time when so many of their other European contemporaries were cleaning up their sound. All tracks are nice and long – and the cuts here are unedited recordings, appearing for the first time ever – titles that include "The World Of Genius Hans", "Astromonster", "London Cab", "Galantine", and "Like A Flower". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited numbered edition of 1000 copies – with bonus 7" single of the group's first 1970 recordings, and inserts too.)

Sante PalumboSway (with bonus CD) ... LP
CPT/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An amazing set from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a jazz album with a fair bit of electric instrumentation, but one that comes across in a very different way than American or other European fusion of the time! Instead, there's kind of this core acoustic energy to the record – maybe from the righteous work on the kit, plus additional percussion, from Lino Liguori – who can hang back some moments, then step into a tune in a very explosive way – really giving focus to the keyboard work of leader Sante Palumbo, as he plays both acoustic and Fender Rhodes on the album. The record's also got some excellent alto, flute, and tenor from Hugo Heredia – an Argentine musician – plus great guitar from Sergio Farina, who can play freely one minute, and hit some wah-wah funk the next! There's a mix of outside jazz and funk throughout the record – in a way that's quite unusual, and which really keeps things on edge – and the whole thing feels like some of the most compelling records on the Dire label from the same period. Titles include "Sway", "Canon", "Bartokiana", "Sweeten", and "Mad". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD!)

Three Out (Mike Nock)Move ... LP
Columbia/Be! (Germany), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Totally great work from a young Mike Nock – a pianist that most folks know for his electric and experimental sounds of the 70s, but who's appearing here on record for the first time ever – at the head of a totally cooking soul jazz combo! Nock's command of the piano is tremendous right from the start – both hands flying freely, but with a very rhythmic vibe – one that's underscored by the strong work of Freddy Logan on bass and Chris Karan on drums – both musicians we don't know at all, but who really know how to make the record groove – especially in comparison to other Aussie jazz dates from the time. The bass is especially great – a key part of the album's sound, and explored by Nock with these bluesy chords on the piano – and titles include "Move", "Way Back", "Primitive", "Little Niles", "Freshwater", and "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise".

VariousAin't It Funky Now! – Flat Out Funk From The Jazz Brotherhood ... LP
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, meaner, harder-hitting groove. And although the LP was the growing format during these days, there was actually a heck of a lot of great work issued on 45s – still spinning strong with the jukebox crowds in the clubs and tap rooms, and still getting major play on radio stations, where the single was still king. The set features many 45 mixes of funky classics that you might know from LPs – and intersperses them with some other more obscure numbers pulled from full albums – making for an all-solid, all-funky set of tracks from one of the hippest jazz labels ever! Titles include "Fire Eater" by Rusty Bryant, "Don't Knock My Love" by Idris Muhammad, "Jungle Strut" by Gene Ammons, "Express Yourself" by Idris Muhammad, "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Sing A Simple Song" by Charles Earland, "Son Of Man" by Houston Person, "Listen Here (part 1)" by Freddie McCoy, "Black Talk (part 1)" by Charles Earland, "Message From The Meters" by Leon Spencer, "Reelin With The Feeling" by Charles Kynard, "I Want You Back" by Harold Mabern, and "Thank You (part 1)" by Melvin Sparks.

VariousBeat From Badsville Vol 4 – Even More Trash Classics From Lux & Ivy's Vinyl Mountain (2 x 10 inch vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 x 10 inch ... $22.99
Two ultra-cool 10" records – both the size of a vintage 78, but each containing a dozen totally hip tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! The music here follows strongly in the great tradition of this excellent series – and like the rest, digs deep in the hinterland of the vintage vinyl single – to uncover some rare gems that run the gamut from early soul, to rock instrumentals, R&B, and lots of other recorded oddities! As you might guess from the Cramps-like title, there's a pretty upbeat, festive feel to the record – as raw sounds collide and provide a mighty great listen all the way through – from titles that include "Call My Name" by The Saints, "Begging" by Bo Toliver & His Timers, "Summertime" by Jamie Coe, "Midnight Express" by The Dawnbeats, "Tarantula" by The Storms, "Charge" by The Renegades, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Stop The Clock Rock" by The Creel Sisters, "Shake Baby Shake" by Celestine, "I'm Scared Of The Horrors Of The Black Museum" by Nightmares Jimmie Maddin Orchestra, "Here Lies My Love" by Mr Undertaker, and "The Whipmaster" by Don Johnston.

✨✧ Roscoe Mitchell SextetSound ... LP
Delmark, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the first bold statements to come from Chicago's AACM underground of the 60s – a tremendous debut effort from the young Roscoe Mitchell! The album's got a "sense of the new" feel that's as gripping as anything recorded by ESP or Impulse around the same time – a rule-breaking, freely-creative approach to jazz that builds strongly off the changes already wrought by Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, and Archie Shepp! The format is somewhat like the Art Ensemble Of Chicago at times – with measured horn work from Mitchell on alto, clarinet, and recorder, Maurice McIntyre on tenor, Lester Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Lester Lashley on trombone (as well as a bit of cello). Some tracks – like the brilliant "Sound" – offer a slow-building exploration of tones and textures – while others, like the blues-joke "Little Suite", or the harmelodic "Ornette", show a wry sense of humor that would become a Chicago avant hallmark as the years went on!

✨✧ Ken Vandermark & Fred Lonberg HolmResistance ... LP
Bocian (Poland), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Chicago sound in all of its power and glory – as these two frequent musical partners find a way to set fire one minute, then move into careful sonic textures the next – all while improvising freely at breakneck creative speed! Ken Vandermark plays a range of reeds, and Fred Lonberg Holm sometimes does this amazing job of matching his tones and energy with either cello or electronics – then also steps out into sonic space of his own, into which Vandermark seems equally able to follow! The performance – for those who might have been there – was a benefit for the late Malachi Ritscher, at Heaven Gallery – and the duo perform five different improvisations together.
