✨✧ SyreetaRita Wright Years – Rare Motown 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare early material from one of the hippest singers on 70s Motown – the heavenly Syreeta, best known for her seminal work with Stevie Wonder – heard here in the years before, on a rare single and a huge amount of never-issued tracks! Syreeta first worked for Motown under the name of Rita Wright – but apart from a 1967 single on Gordy, and a handful of compilation tracks in recent years, almost all her work for the label at the time appears here for the first time ever – a massive 18 of the collection's total 24 tracks – offering up a huge look at the early days of this wonderful talent! Even at the start, Syreeta's got a style that's hipper than most – righteous currents that point the way towards the 70s, and set her apart from some of the other female singers on the label – with a vibe that's completely sublime. We're really not sure why these cuts have been hidden for so long – because on any other label, they'd be hit material – especially given that production his handled by giants like Hal Davis, Stevie Wonder, Ashford & Simpson, and the Holland-Dozier-Holland team. One of the coolest sets of female soul you'll buy in a long, long time – with titles that include "Bad Boy", "Ain't I Gonna Win Your Love", "Beware Of A Stranger", "Love Child", "Since You Came Back", "Mind Body & Soul", "May His Love Shine Forever", "Something On My Mind", "That's What He Told Me", "It Don't Mean Nothin To Me", "Give Back The Good Things", "Can You Feel It Babe", "Save The Country", "Hurtin Me", "Love My Lovin Man", and "Where There's A Will There's A Way".

All Natural & Family TreeFamily Tree Presents... Tree House Rock ... LP
All Natural, 2003. Very Good+ 2LP ... $6.99
Nice!!! This is the tightest full length effort yet by the extended Family Tree collective. Tone B Nimble, Capital D, Iomos Marad, Greenweedz, Rita J, Daily Plannet and the rest have reined in their sound for this one – a very strong set of classically-trained hip hop that should take another step towards establishing Chicago as a vital breeding ground for thoughtful, collaborative hip hop. Like recent work by J Live, J Sands, Lone Catalysts, Little Brother and other natural hip hop crews the Family Tree keep their feet firmly-planted in the roots – crisp samples, loose tongues, and innovative rhymes. The nod to School House Rock is appropriate – the Fam aims to entertain and enlighten – just as the landmark cartoon did, and if they manage to teach some people how strong the Chicago hip hop scene can be, we couldn't be any happier! Tracks include "Spit It", "I Am", "Blow The Spot", "Motive", "Virgo", "Rocks For You", "Horse", "Flow", "Push, Move, Build", "Save It", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

BalderdashBallad Of Shirley Goodness ... CD
Uni/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A solo set from John "Balderdash" Herron – a singer who'd worked previously as part of the duo of Bondoggle & Balderdash – but who maybe sounds even better here on his own! The album's got a nicely strong focus on John's raspy vocals and songwriting – and backs his efforts with well-done arrangements that echo some of the rootsier elements of similar vintage Uni Records material by Elton John – although with maybe a bit more of a country rock vibe overall, as you'd guess from the title. Rita Jean Bodine helps out on backing vocals, and titles include "Shirley Goodness & Mercy", "Picture Tube Blues", "Sing It Like A Farmer", "Back To The Wilderness", and "Whiskey Flat". CD

Chico BuarqueOs Primeiros Anos (Chico Buarque De Hollanda Vols 1, 2 & 3) ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy 3 CDs ... $29.99
A beautiful collection of work from Chico Buarque – one of the most important singer/songwriters in Brazilian music during the past 50 years! The three records in the set are the classic Chico Buarque De Hollanda Vols 1, 2, & 3 – real standard-setting records that still stand as some of Chico's finest music ever! The first album is Chico Buarque's debut, and a groundbreaking batch of tunes that helped shape the sound of popular music in Brazil for years to come! Buarque predates the Tropicalia era, but is working here in a style that clearly allowed for their later impact – a mode that draws on styles from bossa, folklore, and samba – but which somehow manages to rise into a groove that's all its own. Buarque's genius can immediately be summed up in classics on the set – like "Pedro Pedreiro", "A Rita", "Tem Mais Samba", "A Banda", and "Ole Ola" – all wonderful numbers that make the album an essential one in any collection! Volume 2 features simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since! At one level, the sound here draws heavily from the samba recordings of previous years – but at another level, there's a greater level of sophistication that predates the growth of the MPB generation during the 70s – a sound that blends in some larger backings and airy production, all for a sound that's completely heavenly! Titles include "Noite Dos Mascarados", "A Televisao", "Fica", "Com Acucar, Com Afeto", "Logo Eu?", "Ano Novo", "Realejo", and "Um Chorinho". Volume 3 is a record that seems to draw on all the best elements of 60s Brazilian pop, and forge them into a sound that's all its own! At one level, there's a post-bossa style of larger arrangements here that recalls the work of Edu Lobo – handled by Maestro Gaya in a mode that recalls some of the best bits of the time on the Elenco or Forma labels. But at another level, there's also a personal and slightly folksy style that reminds us of the initial power of Geraldo Vandre – a sound that's clearly present in Buarque's work, and which stands in a direct line to the best strengths of the emerging Tropicalia generation. The set's filled with classics that include "Carolina", "Roda Viva", "O Velho", "Ate Pensei", "Sem Fantasia", and "Desencontro" – and a few tracks feature Chico in duets with either Toquinho, Cristina, or MPB4!

✨✧ Cool KnightsBana Mulenga ... LP
Private (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $28.99
Quite an obscure group from the Zambian scene of the 70s – and one who've got a vibe that's maybe a bit more soulful than some of their better-known Zamrock contemporaries! The octet have a great way of trading voices back and forth with their grooves – in a mode that's almost South African at some points, but which also seems influenced by American soul, too – especially on some of the more hard-grooving numbers! The more sing-song tracks are still plenty seductive, too – and titles include "Tired Of Being Alone", "My Sweet Rita", "Ngonile", "My Quanty Shoes", and "I Don't Doubt About You".

Floyd DixonMarshall Texas Is My Home ... CD
Specialty, Mid 50s. Used ... $4.99
Marshall Texas may be the home of Floyd Dixon, but the singer really comes into his own on these sides for the legendary California label, Specialty Records! The work's got a nice mix of rootsy blues and some of the best R&B touches that were popping in the Cali scene in the postwar years – that jazz-influenced way of vocalizing used by Charles Brown, Cecil Gant, and others – clearly picked up here by Dixon, and used in ways that give a beautifully soulful groove to his music. Most instrumentation is small combo, using piano in the lead – but not in the raw, or boogie-inspired styles you might find on other blues records of the time – and the set features rare singles on Specialty, others on different labels, and even some unreleased tracks! 22 cuts in all – with titles that include "Hole In The Wall", "Please Don't Go", "Carlos", "Chicken Crossing", "Call Operator 210", "Oh Baby", "Rita", and "Oooh Little Girl".

Frank FosterFearless Frank Foster ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1965. Used ... $14.99
An incredible album from tenor giant Frank Foster – one of his best records ever, with an impeccable soul jazz groove that's light years beyond his earlier work! The record has a bit of the feel of Frank's album with Richard Davis for Impulse, but takes off in a slightly different direction – tightly grooving, with a bit of a searching feel that points towards Foster's Coltrane-inspired later years. Frank's on tenor, and the rest of the group includes Virgil Jones on trumpet, Al Dailey on piano, Bob Cunningham on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums. The rhythmic component of the session is tremendous, and titles include "Disapproachment", "Baby Ann", "Janie Huk", and a great version of his "Raunchy Rita". CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. Used ... $11.99
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil!

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Songbook Vol 2 ... CD
Lumiar/Sony (Brazil), 1993. New Copy ... $14.99
Gilberto Gil's working here not as the main artist, but as the songwriter – the very special talent around which this excellent set of recordings is based! The package is one of our favorite in the Lumiar Songbooks series – and, like the rest, it showcases the tremendous compositional abilities of Gil – songs that have touched the Brazilian scene from the late 60s onward – presented here in a number of new recordings by some of his key contemporaries, and younger generations too! This second volume features lots of surprising versions of his tunes – 13 titles that include "Back In Bahia" by Barao Vermelho, "Palco" by Jorge Benjor, "Se Eu Quiser Falar Com Deus" by Gal Costa, "Punk Da Periferia" by Rita Lee, "Realce" by Sandra De Sa & Eduardo Dusek, "Divino Maravilhoso" by Leila Pinheiro, "Refazenda" by Paralamos Do Succeso, and "Pessoa Nefasta" by Erasmo Carlos.

WEA (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A great live recording done for Brazilian TV – and a set that's also one of the most intimate recordings that the great Joao Gilberto made during the 90s! There's a very spare, stripped-down vibe to the album – very much in the spirit of Gilberto's classic material, with an undeniable charm, and an amazing ability to do a hell of a lot with just a little – then make the whole thing seem completely effortless! Gilberto's one of the few of his generation who just seemed to get better as the years go on – as you'll hear from his beautiful work on guitar, and his always wonderful vocals. Rita Lee joins in on the track "Jou Jo Balangandas", Bebel Gilberto duets on "Chega De Saudade", and the other tracks include "Menino Do Rio", "Cuarare", "O Pato", "Canta Brasil" – and CD-only bonus tracks "Estate", "Tim Tim Por Tim Tim", "Bahia Com H", and "Aquarela Do Brasil".

Os MutantesE Seus Cometas No Pais Do Baurets (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
One of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by Os Mutantes – a record that's got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great! Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista are still in the group at this point, and they're working amidst a heavy wave of guitars that echo out with a bit of keyboards and some rhythms that are chunky enough to almost be called funky at times, but sweet and dreamy at others – all produced with a flanged-out finish that makes the whole thing sound great! Titles include "Balada Do Louco", "Todo Mundo Pastou II", "Cantor De Mambo", "Dune Buggy", "Rua Augusta", and "Posso Perder Minha Mulher, Minha Mae, Desde Que Eu Tenha, O Rock and Roll".

Som Livre (Brazil), 1976. Used ... $15.99
Rocking! This is a rare live album recorded by the Mutantes during the years after Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista left the group – and when the only surviving original member Sergio Dias turned the group into a very competent progressive rock outfit! The sound is very different than the group's early albums – but it's still actually pretty darn great, especially if you dig jamming 70s rock – ala some of the bigger groups from the UK progressive years. This live set has the combo jamming more than ever, with lots of long drawn out keyboard solos and guitar licks – and vocals that are a bit more soulful than on some of their other studio sides from the time. Titles include "Hey Tu", "Anjos Do Sul", "Rio De Janeiro", "Rock N Roll City", "Grand Finale", "Sagitarios", and "Esquizofrenia". CD also features the bonus track "Cidadao Da Terra". CD

P TrioEmbalo ... CD
Paladium/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
A beautiful bit of lost bossa jazz from 60s Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by the P Trio, an enigmatic group recording in Belo Horizonte – hardly the same center of bossa nova as the beaches in Rio! The session's got a spare and lively feel – similar to work at the time by the Zimbo Trio or the Milton Banana Trio – heavily rhythmic piano in the lead, but played with some more traditional jazz inflections from time to time, and nicely skipping and light on the more uptempo numbers – and nice and moody on some of the mellower moments. The whole thing's great – as much a bossa trio gem as albums by much bigger groups – arrangements are by Aecio Flavio, and titles include "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Roda", "Rita", "Carinhoso", "Meu Refrao", and "Mascarada".

High Note, 2012. Used ... $8.99
Jeremy Pelt's a player we love more and more as the years go on – a trumpeter who first caught our ear with his soulful, expressive style – but who also seems to be getting better and better with each new release! This set has Pelt playing in a wonderfully mature mode – blocking out spaces of sound with effortless ease – really under-blowing his horn, yet getting a magnitude of sound in the process – with lots of dark edges, and careful shapes that bring a real edge to the session! There's a slight modern edge to the music, along with plenty of the soul promised in the title – and other players include JD Allen on tenor, Danny Grissett on piano, Dwayne Burno on bass, and Gerald Cleaver on drums – plus vocals from Joanna Pascale on one track. Titles include "The Tempest", "Second Love", "Sweet Rita Suite Part 2 – Her Soul", and "Moondrift". CD

Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
One of our favorite Cal Tjader albums ever – and one of the first to have his vibes working alongside Fender Rhodes! The record's a surprising little set from the start of the 70s – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them up with a hipper west coast electric style in the end – a Fantasy Records vibe that meshes together a few different modes, and comes up with a rich new style in the process! There's a bit of vocals on the set – somewhat unusual for Cal Tjader, and often used to augment the soulfully snapping grooves of the best tunes – but even more amazing is the heavy use of Fender Rhodes, played here by the amazing Al Zulaica, who's work on the album really ranks right up there with the best early 70s keyboardists on the coast! Zulaica's piano is amazing next to Cal's warmly chromatic vibes – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Bill Perkins, flute from Mel Martin, trumpet from Luis Gasca, moog from Rita Dowling, and percussion from both Pete and Coke Escovedo. Titles include the killer "Aqua Dulce (Cool-Ade)", a fantastic version of "Gimme Shelter", a sublime of Clare Fischer's "Morning", and the cuts "Ran Kan Kan", "Descarga Cubana", "Curacao", and "Somewhere In The Night".

Motown/Hip-O Select, 1968. Used 6 CDs ... $69.99
Mighty Motown hits the year of 1968 – a time of plenty changes, both social and musical! This massive collection of Motown singles spans 6CDs in all – and together, the tunes are a wonderful illustration of the growing depth of the label at the end of the 60s – an expansive approach to soul music that still burned brightly on previous fronts, but which also moved into hipper territory too! In addition to continued greatness from previous Motown stars, the set also features some key nods towards more righteous aspects of soul at the time – bits of funk, more ambitious productions, and some bolder, more political lyrics on a number of the tunes. This whole transition is laid out beautifully over the course of 144 songs – both a and b-sides of all singles issued by Motown in 1968 – and also told in the pages of the 130 page booklet, filled with notes, writings, photos, and full color images throughout! Music is by Shorty Long, Edwin Starr, Four Tops, Fantastic Four, Rita Wright, R Dean Taylor, Jimmy Ruffin, Bobby Taylor, Chris Clark, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Jr Walker, Smokey Robinson, Debbie Dean, The Ones, The Monitors, Paul Peterson, and lots lots more!

An incredible compilation of dancefloor soul & disco from the early 80s – rare, extended and previously unreleased mixes by NYC legend John Morales – featuring essential material from Logg, Universal Robot Band, Tony Adderly, Class Action, Inner Life and more! Morales was a part of the DJ remix scene that made club ready soul gems out of a bunch of the pop and soul hits of the day, but this compilation on BBE goes deeper than that for the cream of the crop of the post disco grooves of the day, most running on the long side for that unstoppable dancefloor approach, while keeping the song based soul sound fully in place. Essential! 3LP version includes 9 long tracks, with a couple versions extended and longer or otherwise alternate versions than the CD mixes, including the 17+ minute A-side opener "Ain't No Mountain High Enough Parts I & II" (JM extended 4AM mix), "Breaking Down (Sugar Samba)" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Julia & Company, "Barely Breaking Even" (demo version) by Universal Robot Band, "I Ain't Mad At You" (JM extended After-Session M&M mix) by Tony Adderly, "Never Can Say Goodbye" (demo version) by La-Rita Gaskin, "Move To The Groove" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Margie Joseph, "You Got (That Something)" (JM After-Session M&M mix) by Logg and more.

Jan AkkermanTabernakel/Eli ... CD
Atco/BGO (UK), 1973/1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Compelling work from this European guitar talent – two albums on a single CD! On Tabernakel, guitarist Jan Akkerman bridges many worlds – deftly stepping between spare acoustic guitar modes and some much more dynamic electric ones – but all with a sense of care and vision that really makes the record come together! The set begins with a few themes from John Dowland, updated by Akkerman, but still played with an ancient sort of vibe – one that leads into some very cool fusion moments that mix centuries-old aesthetics with the modern – creating a sense of anachronism that really keeps things interesting. Gene Orloff handled some of the larger arrangements, but the focus is always on Akkerman's deft work on the guitar – and titles include "Britannia", "House Of The King", "Javeh", "Lammy", and "A Fantasy". Eli is a real standout! Jan Akkerman did plenty of unusual projects in the 70s, and this album may well be the best of them – an outing with vocalist Kaz Lux, whose unique phrasing really helps give the music a lot of focus! Akkerman's still hanging nicely between rock, funk, and jazz – but the use of vocals means that some of his guitar lines are a bit more spacious in ways that we really love, especially when they mix in these cool cosmic passages with the MPS-like keyboards of Jasper Van't Hof. The album's hardly a straight fusion album, but it's also not really a rock one either – more like a fusion set with vocals in all the right places – on titles that include "Guardian Angel", "Tranquilizer", "Can't Fake A Good Time", "Naked Actress", "Wings Of Strings", and "Strindberg".

Veritano (Japan), 1970. Used ... $28.99
A mighty western from the legendary Luis Bacalov – one that's got a very weird use of instruments on the theme! The title to "L'Oro Dei Bravados" isn't that long, but Bacalov manages to fill the tune with odd harmonica, electric harpsichord, pan pipes, and jews harp – all in the space of a few short minutes, in a way that really sets the scene for all the odder moments to follow in the record! These other elements break off a bit on following tracks, and dominate more strongly – next to other more driving tunes that have a more conventional western soundtrack feel. Some vocals are by I Cantori Moderni, whistling and guitar is by Alessandro Alessandroni, and harmonica is by Franco De Gemini. CD features the previously unreleased "Adios Tierra Mia (edit)" – plus 19 more tracks from the film! CD

A twin-tenor classic from the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – one of the duo's best-remembered albums from their 50s years at RCA – and a perfect blend of their talent for individual improvisation and unified ensemble energy! The album boasts 2 different groups – one with Hank Jones on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums; the other with Dick Sherman on trumpet, Dave McKenna on piano, and the rhythm team of Hinton and Johnson – but the main focus is on Al and Zoot throughout, both blowing these lines that are crisp and modern, yet filled with soul – especially on Sims' passages, which break free a bit more than some of the other RCA jazz sessions of the time. Titles include "My Blues", "More Bread", "Sherm's Terms", "From A To Z", "Crimea River", and "Mediolistic". CD

The record's got an even farther-reaching sound than the group's self-titled effort – a flowing style that unfolds as their tribute to Malcolm rolls on – starting spare and earthy at first, then picking up a fuller, prouder, much more righteous groove as things really get going! As before, there's plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom of most tracks – topped by complicated horn passages that often verge on the exotic – and which have a tremendously captivating sound. The ensemble's led by the great Phil Cohran, who played with Sun Ra for a bit, and also plays cornet on the record – the rest of the group includes Charles Williams, Don Myrick, Louis Satterfield, Pete Cosey, Henry Gibson, Willie Woods, and Aaron Dodd – a lineup of players who also worked with Sun Ra, The Pharoahs, and Earth Wind & Fire! The LP's a suite of 4 tracks dedicated to Malcolm X, each capturing a period of his life, "Malcolm Little", "Detroit Red", "Malcolm X", and "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz". CD
(Packaged in a cool record-style sleeve.)

Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSingles (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Midday Music, Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Amazing work from the legendary Phil Cohran – and a much-needed collection of his rare singles on the Zulu label! The work here is contemporary to the sides issued by Phil's Artistic Heritage Ensemble on their two famous records – but the sound is often a bit tighter, and funkier too – kind of the 45 distillation of sounds the group was working out in larger format on the full albums! As with those classics, the approach is amazing – a hip blend of jazz, soul, and African elements – very much in the spirit of Sun Ra, Cohran's predecessor on the Chicago scene – but often with a lot more groove, and a lot less avant garde elements. Players on the set include Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on baritone, Charles Handy on trumpet, Louis Satterfield on bass, Pete Cosey on guitar, and Henry Gibson on timbales and conga – all working at a level that easily rivals the best from Ra, Salah Ragab, Mulatu, and other space jazz legends from the time! Titles include "The African Look", "Loud Mouth", "New Frankiphone Blues", "Frankiphone Blues", "Detroit Red", "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz", and "Black Beauty". CD
(LP sleeve edition – printed in Japan, and very well done!)

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleSpanish Suite ... LP
Zulu/Tizona, 1968. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Great lost work from the legendary Phil Cohran and his Artistic Heritage Ensemble – a composition that was recorded during the group's late 60s years on the Chicago scene – but which has never been released until now! The album stands beautifully alongside the group's self-titled classic and their tribute to Malcolm X – and like those amazing records, this one has a feel that's all its own – an exploration of Moorish elements in Spanish culture – which comes off as a Latin-inflected sound with African roots! The lineup here is similar to other Cohran classics – Donald Myrick on baritone sax, Charles James Williams on alto, Eugene Easton on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, Aaron Dodd on tuba, Pete Cosey on guitar, Henry Gibson on congas, and Louis Satterfield on bass – a mix of musicians that includes members with Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire listed in their resumes! Cohran's vision in the suite is wonderful – and the music has all the depth and righteous energy of his self-titled record, but a bit more Latin fire too – a beautiful blend that really makes us appreciate his genius even more than before, and which finally gives us another record of his to love after all these years.

Sam DeesHeritage Of A Black Man ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer soul from the 70s! Sam Dees was one of the decade's greatest unsung talents – and his work as a writer and arranger has appeared on countless recordings from the time, even though he himself didn't cut many under his own name. As part of his creative process, though, he would often cut very professional private recordings to work out his songs and his musical ideas – and nearly all of those recordings had a quality that was as good (or better) than most of the soul material that was being issued to the commercial market at the time. This great 22 track CD (a follow-up to Kent's other set of Dees' demos) brings together some of Dees' best private recordings, and the set's filled with some of the best 70's soul tracks we've heard in ages! Titles include "Why Must I Live In Chains", "Black Tattler", "Meet Me Half Way", "Where Is The Love", "Only Lonely People", "Just As Soon As The Feeling's Over", and "Lovers Or Enemies". Highly recommended! CD

✨✧ Jimmy DeucharPal Jimmy ... CD
Tempo/Jasmine (UK), 1957/1958. Used ... $8.99
Late 50s hardbop from Britain – featuring groups led by trumpeter Jimmy Deuchar, at the time one of the best trumpet players outside of the US! Deuchar had a hard, heavy approach that was perfect for the bop ensemble mode in which he worked – and here, he's getting accompaniment from other strong British players that include Tubby Hayes, Derek Humble, Phil Seamen, and Harry South. The sides on the set were originally recorded for the Tempo labels in the years 1957 and 1958 – and the original releases of the material soon disappeared from the racks, only to trade hands for a fortune amongst European jazz collectors. Titles include "Pal Jimmy", "Heather Mist", "Jak Jak", "Swingin In Studio Two", "I Could Write A Book", and "Split Second". CD

Dr JohnGris Gris ... LP
Atco, 1968. Very Good+ ... $39.99
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".

Silkheart (Sweden), 1987. Used ... $16.99
One of a handful of great recordings by this second generation AACM group. The group's a trio featuring Kahil El'Zabar, Ed Wilkerson and Joseph Bowie, with a sound that rolls along nicely with a firm, afro-centric rhythm at its core. The compositions are beautiful and spare, with light melodies and extended improvisations by Wilkerson and Bowie on tenor and trombone over the pulsing rhythms. Six numbers in all "Papa's Bounce", "Loose Pocket", "Three And A Half", "Kahil's Blues", "Ancestral Song" and "Mamma's House". CD

Judy Henske & Jerry YesterFarewell Aldebaran (starburst vinyl pressing) ... LP
Straight/Omnivore, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
An album as tripped-out as its cover – served up by ex-folkie Judy Henske, and underground talent Jerry Yester – who you may know from his work in the studio, and his stint in The Lovin Spoonful! The sounds here, though, are completely different from anything you might expect from the duo's heritage – weird and wild enough to get original issue on Frank Zappa's Straight label – and years ahead of its time! Henske can draw vocally on a longer legacy of folk, but transform her approach with much more of a mind-blown late 60s style – which really gets opened up by Yester's contributions, which really have that special spark he brought to his production work for other artists – and which can bring sinister currents to some of the songs. Titles include "Snowblind", "Horses On A Stick", "Three Ravens", "Raider", "Rapture", "Charity", and "Farewell Aldebaran". LP, Vinyl record album
