Rita LeeRita Lee (1979) ... LP
Som Livre (Brazil), 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A very weird record to peg – kind of half "rock n roll revival", in the mode of some of Lee's other 70s work, but also done with kind of a late 70s throwaway pop style. Most likely ironic and wishing it had a New York sense of irony to carry it through – and with tracks that include "Doce Vampiro", "Corre Corre", "Chega Mais", "Papai Me Empresta O Carro", "Maria Mole", and "Mania De Voce".

Righteous sounds from Rita Marley – a set that's one of her best-remembered albums, and done in a well-crafted style that definitely lives up to the Marley family name! The set was recorded at Tuff Gong, with a lean quality and laidback groove that lets Rita really step out front on vocals – and titles include "A Jah Jah", "That's The Way", "Good Morning Jah", "Easy Sailing", "One Draw", "Who Feels It Knows It", "Thank You", and "Play Play".

Maria RitaSegundo (CD & DVD) ... CD
Warner, 2005. New Copy CD & DVD ... $4.99 24.98
The amazing second album from Brazilian singer Maria Rita – and a real departure from the first! This time around, Maria's working live in the studio – in a warmly spontaneous setting that's a nice departure from the more confined modes of her debut – and which is given some especially nice touches on production by Lenine! There's a spirit here that goes far beyond Rita's introduction to the world as the daughter of Elis Regina – and which has the singer really moving into her own territory, and working with some of the more globally-directed soul of some of the other young singers of the current Brazilian scene. Most tracks feature strong acoustic piano from Tiago Costa – who also handled most of the arrangements on the album, and brings in a warm mix of jazz that occasionally grooves with a few funky touches as well. We're honestly surprised at how much we love this one – and in one fell swoop, Rita's managed to challenge so many of the electronically-augmented Brazilian singers of late – with a mostly-acoustic outing that's got even more raw power! Titles include "Mal Intento", "Recado", "Caminho Das Aguas", "Casa Pre-Fabricada", "Minha Alma", "Sobre Todas As Coisas", and "Sem Aviso". DVD features a bonus "Making Of" film! CD

A fantastic funky cut from Rita Wright – one that has a great break at the start, then slides into a seductive blend of keyboards, strings, and soul, all while keeping the break riding high at the bottom! "Love Is All You Need" is more full-on funky soul – the kind of cut you might hear from Linda Williams or Marlena Shaw! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Philips, 1955/1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best of the legendary Jazz Behind The Dikes 10" LP series – an important set of 50s recordings that showcased the great work coming out of the Netherlands in the postwar years! This set features a number of tracks led by drummer Wessel Ilcken and featuring trumpet by Jerry Van Rooyen, better known for his later groovy soundtrack work. Many of the tracks feature vocals by the lovely Rita Reyes, and other players include tenor sax player Toon Van Vliet, trombonist Dick Bezemer, and pianist Rob Madona. Tracks include "A Dandy Line", "For Minors Only", "I Should Care", "The Goofer" and "Wailing For Weelink". LP, Vinyl record album

SyreetaRita Wright Years – Rare Motown 1967 to 1970 ... CD
Motown/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
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".

VariousZell's Girls – J&S, Zell's, Baton, & Dice Recordings 1955 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Girl soul galore – a massive collection of work from the Harlem-based production efforts of Zell Sanders – a lesser-known maestro of the girl group sound back in the 60s! Sanders issued most of this material on a few small labels – Zell, J&S, Baton, and Dice – but there's a really unified quality to the tunes, given his strong focus on sing-song lyrics, captivating rhythms, and the more earnest side of the vocal spectrum. Many of these tracks are a fair bit rougher than contemporary work on bigger labels – no Phil Spector or Leiber & Stoller masterpieces here – but that's also one of the great things about the music, because it makes the set a nice alternative to some of the too-polished, too-overplayed tracks that often dominate the girl group field. CD features 28 titles in all – including "Cry Behind The Daisies", "Extra Extra Read All About It", and "Peepin In & Out The Windows" by The Jaynetts; "Give Our Love A Chance" by Ada Ray, "No Turning Back For Me" by The Hearts, "Stay Away From My Baby" by Taffie Lee, "What Makes Me Love You Like I Do" by The Pre-Teens, "Suffering With My Heart" by The Endeavors, "To Be A Part Of You" by The Clickettes, "Need You To Help Me" by Rita Zell, "It Doesn't Matter" by Neice Dezel, "Over The Mountain Across The Sea" by Miss Johnnie, and "Oh Come Back Baby" by Ada Ray.

✨✧ VariousNorthern Soul Weekender – The Original Sound Of Northern Soul ... LP
Charly (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Socking soul from the 60s and early 70s – brought together here in a mighty tribute to the lasting power of the Northern Soul scene in the UK! Other volumes of this collection have focused on sounds that played big in British clubs in the early days of the scene – but this set showcases cuts that have gotten a lot of play in more recent years – including some that weren't even discovered back in the day, and have taken years to finally get their due from soul fans! The groove is upbeat – with a vibe that begins in Motown, but soon takes off into all of the great new territory the scene has embraced over the years – including some strands of deep soul that are especially welcome here. Titles include "I Hurt On The Other Side" by Sidney Barnes, "You'll Always Be In Style" by The Adlibs, "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" by Rita & The Tiaras, "I Still Love You" by Ann Sexton, "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Just Loving You" by Ruby Andrews, "Baby" by Ellie Greenwich, "If You Ask Me" by Jerry Williams, "Just Another Heartache" by Little Richie, "Under Your Powerful Love" by Joe Tex, "I'm A Big Man" by Big Daddy Rogers, "Better" by Ruby Winters, and "Baby What Has Happened To Our Love" by The Ringleaders.

Jorge BenNegro E Lindo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious modes being explored by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo at the time – expressed here in some larger instrumental passages that shade the tunes lightly, while still letting Jorge step out strongly on vocals and the usual mix of tight percussion and raspy guitar. Titles include "Que Maravilha", "Rita Jeep", "Comanche", "Porque E Proibido Pisa Na Grama", "Cassius Marcelo Clay", "Palomaris", "Maria Domingas", and "Negro E Lindo". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil Songbook Vol 2 ... CD
Lumiar/Sony (Brazil), 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
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.

Joao GilbertoPrado Pereira De Oliveira (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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".

Elvin Jones & Richard DavisHeavy Sounds ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $49.99
Heavy Sounds, indeed – a beautiful little set of dark-edged soul jazz from the mid 60s – co-led by bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones! The sound here is a bit different than any work ever released by either player as a leader – and is almost more in the vein of Blue Note or Prestige work of the same period – hardbop turned towards more soulful notes, but also still touched with a degree of modernism. A key element in the group is Frank Foster on tenor – whose blowing here is superb, and really on a par with his own albums as a leader from the time – marking a strong sound away from too many years of Basie influences! Frank does a killer job on his own "Rauncy Rita", taken here in a nice sexy groove, and stretched out nice and long with a very sinister feel – and other tracks include "ME", "Summertime", and "Elvin's Guitar Blues", which actually features Jones on guitar!

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".

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 ... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Think The Beatles only had an impact on rock and pop fans in the America of the 60s? Think again – because their music had an undeniable impact on soul as well – as you'll here from this wonderful range of remakes of classic cuts from the Fab Four! The work here is a real surprise if you don't know the legacy – but it also really makes sense once you're reminded of the mind-expanding, ear-opening territory the group hit in the latter half of the 60s – and working with themes of social change, alienation, and personal longing – of the sort that turn out to be perfect for new interpretations in soul! Most of these cuts are way more than standard cover versions, too – as the arrangements are really inventive, and take off in bold new directions that make the songs very much new properties overall. Most of the work here is from the late 60s and early 70s – and as always with Ace Records, the notes and presentation really put the music in context! Titles include "The Fool On The Hill" by The Four Tops, "Dear Prudence" by The Five Stairsteps, "For No One" by Maceo & The King's Men, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" by Ike & Tina Turner, "Tomorrow Never Knows" by Junior Parker, "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Do You Want To Know A Secret" by Mary Wells, "Lovely Rita" by Fats Domino, "With A Little Help From My Friends" by The Undisputed Truth, "Savoy Truffle" by Ella Fitzgerald, and "Let It Be" by Bill Withers.

Nessa, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A well-titled set, given that Fred Anderson's been a missing link in Chicago jazz for many years – a bold tenorist with qualities that reach back to the heavy sax generation of the 50s, and a creative improvisor who's kept the AACM ideals alive and well in the Windy City for years! The session captures Fred in the late 70s, a really under-recorded point in his career (especially in comparison to his big revival of the past decade or so) – and Anderson's working with Larry Hayrod on bass, Hamid Drake on drums, and Adam Rudolph on percussion – in relatively freewheeling space that gives Fred plenty of room to solo! Titles include "Twilight", "Ballad For Rita", and "The Bull". CD features the bonus previously-unreleased track "Tabla Peace" – a cool number penned by Drake, with lots of nice percussion. CD

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 ... $19.99
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

Al Cohn & Zoot SimsFrom A to Z & Beyond (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
RCA/Jazz Heritage, 1956. Used ... $3.99
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

John ColtraneColtrane Jazz (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Atlantic/Jazz Heritage, 1960. Used ... $3.99
The title may be a simple one, but the record really marks a key point in John Coltrane's development – an embrace of the newer freedoms allowed to him at Atlantic Records, but in a way that's a bit more subtle than some of his other work for the label! At one level, the record moves at the same groove as Trane's later Prestige years – with rhythm mostly from Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – carving out some sharp lines for Coltrane to cascade over on tenor sax. Yet there's also a new sense of darkness here too – one that moves into edgier territory, and which isn't nearly as settled in as before. These qualities sneak out of both original numbers like "Harmonique", "Fifth House", and "Like Sonny" – as well as standards like "My Shining Hour" and "Little Old Lady". And they really come to the forefront on the classic "Village Blues" – the one track that features the new Coltrane group of McCoy Tyner, Steve Davis, and Elvin Jones! CD features 4 more bonus alternate takes too! CD

Sam DeesHeritage Of A Black Man ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 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

Dr JohnGris Gris ... LP
Atco, 1968. Very Good- ... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

DreamloversBest Of The Dreamlovers – The Heritage Years Plus ... CD
Heritage/Sequel (UK), Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
Sublime work from The Dreamlovers – a key Philly group who made the transition strongly from doo wop to 60s group soul! The set begins with some of the group's earliest material – issued by the first version of Jerry Ross' Heritage Records – but even more interesting is the later stuff, which appeared on the Columbia, Swann, and Cameo labels – eventually showing the group moving into the sort of uptown soul territory you might normally expect from New York! The package is overflowing with great tracks – a whopping 22 titles, recorded between 1961 and 1966 – with cuts that include "Oh Baby Mine", "You Gave Me Somebody To Love", "Bless Your Soul", "The Bad Times Make The Good Times", "When We Get Married", "I'm Thru With You", "If I Should Lose You", "Amazons & Coyotes", "I Need You", "Happiness", "Mother", "Let's Twist Again", "Calling Jo-Ann", and "Zoom Zoom Zoom".

Ethnic Heritage EnsembleAncestral Song ... CD
Silkheart (Sweden), 1987. Used ... $11.99
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

Ethnic Heritage EnsembleKa-Real ... CD
Silkheart, 1997. Used ... $14.99
Another fine recording by this legendary AACM combo that features percussion by Kahil El'Zabar, saxes by Ernest Dawkins, and trombone by Joseph Bowie. In true AACM fashion, though, the group often doubles on extra instruments – especially percussion – and they're joined on this recording by Atu Harold Murray on earth drums and flutes. Tracks are long, with a spiritual approach to avant garde that's slowly disappearing from the scene in Chicago. Titles include "Great Black Music", "Kampfumo Shuffle", "Jam For The Babas", "Hang Tough", and "Ka-Real". CD

Bill Evans & Jim HallUndercurrent ... CD
Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
A legendary set from the team of guitarist Jim Hall and pianist Bill Evans – both already wonderful players on their own, but really hitting a magical sort of space here together! The record is a classic in understatement – the inevitable meeting of two players who'd both made a career out of saying more with less – and both Evans and Hall manage to make this special sort of sound when working together in such a space – spare, but never short on ideas – filled with color and tone, but never overdone. The tracks are long and dreamy, and the piano/guitar lines seem to float in the air, suspended on naught but idea and imagination. Titles include a very nice version of "Skating In Central Park", plus "Dream Gypsy", "Romain", and "Darn That Dream". CD includes four previously unissued tracks – "Stairway To The Stars", "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", and alternate takes of "Romain" and "My Funny Valentine". CD
