Evie SandsAny Way That You Want Me (with bonus track) ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
Sweet folksy pop from the glory days of A&M! Evie Sands has a voice that's emotive in a folk rock way, but which is here produced with smoother west coast arrangements that are more in an LA mode – which makes for a very cool mix of modes! The overall sound of the album is very hip – with that cool late 60s approach that never gets picked up by oldies stations, and which is only the province of records like this – odd mis-shots in the pop economy that often got cut out as soon as they were produced, shunned by an uncaring record buying public – but waiting to be discovered by your ears all these many years later. Titles include "Crazy Annie", "It's This I Am", "Shadow Of The Evening", "Close Your Eyes, Cross Your Fingers", "Any Way That You Want Me", "One Find Summer Morning", and "I'll Hold Out My Hand". Also includes the bonus track "Maybe Tomorrow". CD

Gentle CycleGentle Cycle ... LP
Psychedelphonic, 2017. Near Mint- ... $12.99
Swirling neo-classic psych from San Jose's Gentle Cycle – fronted by Derek See, whose work with Bang Girl Group Revue, Chocolate Watchband, and recordings under his own name have made him a underground west coast legend over the years! The quartet features two guitars and plenty of fuzz – given a presentation that's a bit like some of the best paisley underground material from a few decades back – not immediately retro psych-styled, but still plenty trippy in all the right spots – especially when the vocals step back and really let the guitars open up! Titles include "Love Is The Plan", "Way To Decay", "Shells & spells", "Far Beyond", and "She Came This Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis LundyJust Be Yourself ... CD
Evidence, 1987. Used ... $6.99
A beautiful album, and one of the lost jazz gems of the 80's! The whole session's got a beautiful mix of soulfulness, tight jazz playing, and rich warm composition that's rare for the time the record was recorded – and it's one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by bassist Curtis Lundy, one of our favorite jazz talents ever! Lundy's sister Carmen sings vocals on the fantastic soaring groover "Never Gonna Let You Go" – which is something of a jazz dance classic – and Curtis' crack ensemble wails all the way through on other tracks like "Jabbo's Revenge", "Bolando", and "Crossroads". Bobby Watson's on alto, Kenny Washington's on drums, and Steve Nelson's on vibes. Don't pass this one up, because it's a much-overlooked treat! CD

✨✧ VariousRewind! 4 – Original Classics Revisited, Rerecorded & Rewound ... CD
Ubiquity, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
This great series just keeps on getting better and better – and we've got no problem saying that we really love this latest installment of Rewind! As with previous volumes, the focus here is on older tunes, redone by current artists of the global groove underground – served up in a variety of styles that extrapolate the originals nicely. The difference here, though, is that the overall sound is massively funky – harder hitting than even the excellent previous volumes, and in a mode that goes way past the gimmick of a "covers only" album. Tracks include 5 exclusives to the set, plus a few that have been hard to track down in any form – and titles include "Evil Vibrations" by Rebirth, "Word Up" by Willis, "This Land Is Our Land" by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, "Funky Nassau" by Orgone, "Just Like A Baby" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Star Of A Story" by Yam Who, "River Man" by Shawn Lee, "I Love You" by As One, "The Look Of Love" by Platinum Pied Pipers, and "7 Nation Army" by Nostalgia 77.

CartolaCartola 70 Anos ... CD
BMG (Brazil), 1979. Used ... $9.99
Cartola may be 70 years old at the time of this set, but his vocals still sound pretty darn great – and if anything, the passage of time seems to have deepened his sound even more! As with other gems from this revival period in Cartola's career, the sound is warmly traditional, but never too sentimental – a perfect 70s samba groove that features crisp, clear production on the instrumental elements – and just the right focus on the lead vocals. Titles include "Senoes", "A Mesma Estoria", "Bem Feito", "Fim De Estrada", "A Cor Da Esperanca", "Feirado Na Roca", "Ciencia E Arte", and "Silencio De Um Cipreste". CD

Bob DylanHighway 61 Revisited (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s! The newly-electrified Dylan really takes off here – putting more punch and bit into his already-strong lyrical approach – and twisting things in amazing ways that still leave us breathless all these many years later! And sure, the album gave Bob a few hits – which are nestled in here next to headier tunes that work together perfectly. Titles include "Like A Rolling Stone", "Ballad Of A Thin Man", "It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes A Train To Cry", "From A Buick 6", "Desolation Row", "Highway 61 Revisited", and "Queen Jane Approximately".

Jukka Eskola Soul TrioJukka Eskola Soul Trio ... CD
Timmion (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic full length set from trumpeter Jukka Eskola and his Soul Trio – a combo with a strange sort of name! The group here is actually a sextet – as the core combo gets guest help from Timo Lassy on saxes, Magnus Lindgren on flute, and Ville Herrala on bass – who really expand the trio's wonderful groove – a mode that's partly soul jazz, but with very rich flavors of its own – hardly any sort of easy copycat of old American modes! Teppo Makynen – aka Teddy Rok – plays drums, alongside Mikko Helava on organ – and while the album shows all the respect for soulful jazz traditions that we've heard in previous music from Rok, Eskola, and Lassy – the sound is also very different, fresh, and quite original! Titles include "Hong Thong", "Railyard Boogie", "Subterranean Variations", "For Anne Lee", "Sweet Honey Bee", "Introducing The Trio", "Soft Drop", and "Jumpin Punkins". CD

Roland KirkI Talk With The Spirits ... LP
Limelight, 1964/1997. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of Roland Kirk's moodiest albums – and a record that really helped him find a big new audience in the 60s! The approach here is a bit different than some of Kirk's more bombastic jazz albums from previous years – gentle, and almost spiritual at times – thanks to heavy use of flute, which Kirk explores with a deeply personal tone – easing out gentle lines that really foreshadow the use of the instrument in the post-Coltrane generation! The record has a dark somber tone at times, and a sweetly redemptive one at others – and the other players include Horace Parlan on piano, Bobby Moses on vibes, Michael Fleming on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums – and the album also features a bit of vocals from Crystal-Joy Albert. Titles include "Ruined Castles", "Trees", "I Talk With The Spirits", and Roland's classic "Serenade To A Cuckoo". LP, Vinyl record album

Orgasmo SonoreRevisiting Obscure Library Music ... LP
Cineploit (Austria), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the first groups to bring back the sound of the classic Italian scene of the 70s – and still one of the best! Orgasmo Sonore spent their previous two records working through classic tracks from Italian soundtracks of the 70s – and this time around, they turn their ear towards the even funkier styles of the sound library scene – but with results that are equally great, given that many of the composers are the same! The group run through rare library tracks penned by Bruno Nicolai, Allesandro Alessandroni, Lesiman, Piero Umiliani, and others – all with this tight small combo feel that's heavy on sweet keyboards and great guitars, and which gets just the right sort of production approach to keep things right. The album may well be the group's best so far – and we've loved everything they've done already – and titles include "Tempo Sospeso", "Confronto", "Moonlight Drive", "L'Erba Di Prima", "Praries", "Viadotti", and "Space Team".

✨✧ Return To ForeverNo Mystery ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Hard grooving work from the middle years of the Return To Forever group – featuring the line up with Chick Corea on keys, synths & percussion, Stanley Clarke on bass, organ and more, Lenny White on percussion and Al DiMeola on guitar. As you'd expect from this crew, this is some of the hardest hitting cosmic fusion that the group ever cut! Titles include "Dayride", "Jungle Waterfall", "Flight Of The Newborn", "Sofistifunk" and "Excerpt From The First Movement Of Heavy Metal". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Return To ForeverRomantic Warrior ... LP
CBS, 1976. Very Good- ... $1.99
One of the hardest-jamming Return To Forever albums – recorded with the post-Brazilian lineup that includes Chick Corea on keyboards, Stanley Clarke on bass, Lenny White on percussion, and Al DiMeola on guitars. Corea's very firmly in the lead – stretching out in heavy keyboard romps that really take off into space – propelled by fierce drums from White, heavy bass from Clarke, and a bit of tippling guitar from DiMeola. We kind of miss the subtlety of Airto's percussion, and the beautiful vocals of Flora – but the overall sound's still pretty wonderful and we do like the spaced-out keyboard touches! Titles include "Soceress", "The Romantic Warrior", "The Magician", and "Majestic Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Revolutionary Blues Band (Gene Page)Revolutionary Blues Band ... LP
Coral, Late 60s. Sealed ... $14.99
Forget the "blues" in the title – because this mostly a totally cool album of funky jazz! The project is arranged by soul producer Gene Page, and it features the funky reed work of a young Tom Scott – who's at the height of his powers here, and who makes most of the tracks jiggle nicely. Bob Thiele produced, and the record bears the Flying Dutchman logo on the back – which is good, because it's got a similar feel to some of the jazz/funk/easy albums on the Flying Dutchman label. Titles include "Milkman, Milkman Leave Me Some Cream Today", "Have A Little Bit More", "Lanoola Goes Limp", "Juicy", "Cutting The Mustard", "Funky Lady", and "Ring My Chimes". A few tracks have vocals – but the album's mostly instrumental! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Trevor Lawrence JrRelationships ... CD
Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title definitely sums up the vibe of the record – because although Trevor Lawrence is the drummer at the core, he's also clearly a hell of a warm personality, too – with a very welcoming vibe that makes the album's array of musicians and guest artists feel right at home! The set's jazz at the core, but with a strong dose of contemporary soul – maybe a bit in the territory of the Robert Glasper Black Radio projects, but with a vibe that's definitely all Trevor's own! The rhythms are rock-solid, and instrumentation often features some mighty sweet keyboards from Kenneth Crouch, Wow Jones, Tabor Gable, and others – alongside other musicians who include Kamasai Washington on tenor, Maurice Mo Betta Brown and Nico Segal on trumpet, Chelsea Baratz and Terrace Martin on saxes, Teodross Avery on tenor, and Nicholas Payton on trumpet. There's just a bit of vocals on the set – sung by Preston Harris, Jimi James, Donna Missal, and oddly LeAnn Rimes – but the instrumental core is what drives the set – on titles that include "Car Vibe", "B Side", "Bring The Party", "The Guts", "11 & 8", "Lovestoned", "Huh", "Alicia's Song", and "Relationships".

✨✧ Jackson 5Moving Violation ... LP
Motown, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
The cover's a bit gimmicky, but the album's a stone classic – a wicked later Motown moment from the Jackson 5 – and one that has them working with the super-grooving team of Holland-Dozier-Holland! Brian Holland handles production work for the team, and although his touches only appear on about half the record, he really helps the Jacksons hit that wickedly righteous groove that was the trademark HDH sound over that the Invictus label – a bassy, bottom-heavy Detroit sound with just a bit of psychedelic funk as well! Additional production is by Mel Larson & Jerry Marcellino – and titles include "Forever Came Today", "Moving Violation", "You Were Made Especially For Me", "Honey Love", "Body Language", "All I Do Is Think Of You", and "Breezy".

✨✧ Sven LibaekSolar Flares ... LP
Peer/Votary (Australia), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sublime sound library work from mid 70s Australia – one of the greatest records ever from soundtrack genius Sven Libaek, done in collaboration with a host of the greatest Aussie jazz players of the time! The groove here is laidback, but funky – almost dreamy at times, in the manner of a sweet Italian soundtrack – but also with a flowing groove that seems to draw both from bossa nova and west coast jazz of previous years, yet turn these influences into a whole new sound entirely. Most of the tunes are small combo, and feature reeds from Don Burrows and Erroll Buddle, guitar from George Golla, and vibes from the amazing John Sangster – all wrapped up by Sven with an approach that's almost effortless at times – never too forced, nor too slick – and a fair bit different than music of this type coming from other hemispheres in the 70s! Titles include "Solar Flares", "Stella Maris", "Lift Off", "Destination Omega 3", "Space Walk", "Meteoric Rain", "Quasars", "No Flowers On Venus", and "In Nebular Orbit". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ StereolabMars Audiac Quintet ... CD
Elektra, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
Stereolab's second for Elektra, following strongly on their debut for the label – and one of their best ever! Mars Audiac Quintet is a brilliant batch of space age pop tunes, inflected with the genius ear for 60s classics that's always made the band so compelling to us, but done in a fresh and unique way. Stereolab loved and relied upon vintage gear, but you could never really peg them as retro, or revivalists. There was never another pop band exactly like them, yet it's also important to consider just how incredibly unique Stereolab was in the early-to-mid 90s landscape. Mindblowing! Titles include "Three Dee Melodie", "Wow & Flutter", "Ping Pong", "Anamorphose", "Three Longers Later", "Nihilist Assault Group", and "Fiery Yellow", "Outer Acceleration", "New Orthophony" and more.

✨✧ Chick Corea/Return To Forever5 Original Albums (Light As A Feather/Hymn To The/Where Have I Known/No Mystery/Spanish Heart) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A quintet of classic albums from keyboardist Chick Corea – all served up in a single package! First up is Light As A Feather – a classic bit of jazzy fusion from Chick Corea and the legendary Return To Forever group that included Flora Purim and Airto! The sound of the album influenced a generation, and although the album was overlooked by groovers for years, partly due to its success, it still sounds surprisingly fresh – skipping along with an amazing mix of fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and free-thinking solos! The album's overflowing with great-grooving goodies – and titles include the great original version of "Captain Marvel", plus "Light As A Feather", "Spain", and "500 Miles High". Next is another album with Return To Forever – Hymn To The Seventh Galaxy – a set that finds Chick Corea, Lenny White, Stanley Clarke and Bill Connors going all out from the get go, though our favorite track, "Space Circus" provides a nice breather, with an excellent electric piano intro, and a syncopated funky-ish groove in the main part of the tune that lives up to its name. Also includes the title track, "After The Cosmic Rain", "Captain Senor Mouse", "Theme To The Mothership" and "The Game Maker". Where Have I Known You Before is hard grooving work from the middle years of the Return To Forever group – featuring the line up with Chick Corea on keys, synths & percussion, Stanley Clarke on bass, organ and more, Lenny White on percussion and Al DiMeola on guitars. The title may lead you to believe the set is a mellow one, centered on themes of introspection given some of the song titles, but it's actually a fairly walloping set of spacey jazz rock – with heavy drums, funky bass & synths. Titles include "Vulcan Worlds", "Where Have I Loved You Before", "The Shadow Of The Lo", "Where Have I Danced With You Before", "Beyond The Seventh Galaxy", "Earth Juice" and "Song To The Pharoah Kings". No Mystery is another Return To Forever record – featuring the lineup with Chick Corea on keys, synths & percussion, Stanley Clarke on bass, organ and more, Lenny White on percussion and Al DiMeola on guitar. As you'd expect from this crew, this is some of the hardest hitting cosmic fusion that the group ever cut! Titles include "Dayride", "Jungle Waterfall", "Flight Of The Newborn", "Sofistifunk" and "Excerpt From The First Movement Of Heavy Metal". Last is the record My Spanish Heart – cast in some darker, more contemplative tones than more traditional Latin sides – but it borrows a wonderful array of modes from genres past – including bits of strings, percussion, and an overall more ambitious approach that sometimes shows up in Chick's piano work, or in the general construction of the tunes. The double-length set features a wide variety of Spanish-influenced numbers – played by Corea on acoustic piano and a variety of keyboards, with other players who include Don Alias, Jean Luc Ponty, Stanley Clarke, and Steve Gadd. Titles inclu de "Love Castle", "The Gardens", "Night Streets", "The Hilltop", "Armando's Rhumba", "Prelude To El Bozo", "Spanish Fantasy", and "My Spanish Heart". CD
