Som Livre (Brazil), 1982. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of the earlier collaborations between Rita Lee & Roberto De Carvalho – one that shows Rita moving off her rock n roll style of the 70s, into territory that's smoother, slicker, and a bit more mainstream. Titles include "So De Voce", "O Circo", "Pirata Cigano", "Frou Frou", "Flagra", "Barriga Da Mamae", and "Barata Tonta". LP, Vinyl record album

Rita ReysI Got Rhythm – Rare & Unissued Recordings 1949 to 1964 ... CD
MCN (Netherlands), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
A treasure trove of rare work from Dutch singer Rita Reys – one of the best jazz vocalists on the European scene during the postwar years! Rita's got this way of singing deeply, yet still keeping things swinging – a really great balance that has her never getting too emotive, certainly not in ways you might normally associate with European singers – yet also still managing to bring a great sort of depth to her music! Jazz formats dominate throughout – and these rare archive sessions feature Rita singing with the groups of Pim Jacobs, Piet Van Dijk, Bo Edgar, Ove Lind, Mat Mathews, and Lars Gullin – all with a great deal of clarity, every bit as much as you'd hear from Reys' studio recordings of the period. Titles include "Charge Account", "Mean To Me", "I Got Rhythm", "There's A Small Hotel", "Get Out Of Town", "Willow Weep For Me", "All Of You", "When The Blues Come On", and "She's Funny That Way".

Rita Reys & The Pim Jacobs TrioMarriage In Modern Jazz ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1960. Used ... $11.99
Hip vocal tracks from Dutch singer Rita Reyes – recorded with backing by the Pim Jacobs Trio, a lively combo that features Pim's piano, plus bass and guitar – a nicely light rhythmic style that really works well for the vocals! The format is simple, but compelling – and the record's a great chance to hear Rita at her best – singing in a style that made her one of the best European female jazz singers of her day – right up there next to Monica Zetterlund, Karin Krog, and a rare few others to come to prominence at the start of the 60s. Titles include "Summertime", "I've Got The World On A String", "Too Close For Comfort", "But Not For Me", "Thou Swell", "Like Someone In Love", and "No Moon At All". CD

Soul Brother (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $8.99
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

✨✧ Rita ReysJazz Pictures At An Exhibition ... LP
Philips, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent live set from Dutch vocalist Rita Reys – one of the coolest voices on the continent during the postwar years, and equally well-skilled at singing in English as her American contemporaries! The backing on the set is by the Pim Jacobs trio, with a guest appearance by Kenny Clarke on drums – and the titles are a strong mix of jazz numbers and standards – all done with a lightly dancing quality that's really great. Reys was easily one of the best European singers to pick up on American jazz modes at the time – and this album's a perfect example of the strength of her talents! Titles include "Speak Low", "What's New", "I Remember Clifford", "Poor Butterfly", "Autumn Leaves", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rita Reys with Wessel Ilken & Jazz MessengersCool Voice Of Rita Reys (Philips) ... LP
Philips, 1956. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In the immediate post-war years, the Dutch jazz scene was one of the first to emerge with a sophisticated understanding of the American jazz form. Rita Reys was one of the country's leading talents in this respect, and she had a wonderfully cool vocal style that was similar to American singers like June Christy or Chris Connor. This album from 1956 has her fronting 2 different groups – one the legendary Wessel Ilcken Combo, the other an early version of The Jazz Messengers, featuring Horace Silver and Hank Mobley. The Jazz Messengers sides were apparently recorded in New York, and the Ilcken sides are of Dutch origin. Both are great – and titles include "I Should Care", "It's Alright With Me", "Old Black Magic", "Taking A Chance On Love", and "Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Maria RitaSegundo (CD & DVD) ... CD
Warner, 2005. New Copy CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Maria Rita (Maria Rita Stumpf)Brasileira ... LP
Selva (Brazil), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Not the same Maria Rita that rose to international fame in the past decade or so – but an earlier, much more obscure singer with a nicely rootsy vibe – one whose presence in the Brazilian music scene is maybe more welcome to our ears than her famous later namesake! The album came out at the end of the 80s, but has a sound that feels more like the experimental generation of MPB in the 70s – some moments that have the brashness of Gal Costa around her India album, other moments of gentleness that recall the sensitive soul of Joyce, and maybe a few slight touches of the deeper drama of Maria Bethania – and yet, like all of those artists, this Maria Rita is very much her own person – as can easily be heard by the lack of pop production or commercial efforts on this very unique album. Titles include "Cantico Brasileiro No 1", "Cancao Da Gaora", "Lamento Africano/Rictus", "A Cidade", "Melodia De Veludo", and "Trilhas". 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 ... Out Of Stock
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.

A live recording from 1986 – featuring Chico Buarque and Caetano Veloso performing with an assortment of famous guests that includes Astor Piazzolla, Rita Lee, Jorge Ben, Elza Soares and Casuza. Some of the guests get a full track to themselves – without Caetano or Chico joining in – but the overall quality of the set unifies the different performances nicely. The tracks include "Festa Imodesta", "Adios Nonino", "Aguas De Marco", "Luz Negra","Merda", and Veloso does a version of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" that's worth the price of the record alone!

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".

Some numbers are quite bold and free – power trio playing with an ESP-via-Sweden sort of approach – while other numbers have a much more tentative style, with some subtle sonic textures that we really like the best from this group – especially Santandreu. Titles include "Dartacao", "Grandolo", "Noddy", "Balada Da Rita", and a very odd take on "The Simpsons" theme. CD

United Artists, 1969. Sealed ... $5.99
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever written by Dominic Frontiere – for this strange little comedy starring Alan Arkin as a father who's trying to give his kids away! The tracks have a sweeping groovy approach – large orchestrations, sunny, bouncy, with some strings mixed in with tighter small combo grooving. A few of the tracks have more exotic themes, kind of echoing the uptown world of the film – but overall the score's a nice batch of late 60s groovers with some sweet mod elements! Titles include "They Ran Away", "Rita's Theme", "Two Boys On A Beach", "You Want These Kids", "Geneviva Take Care", and "Where's My Kids". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Lars GullinLars Gullin Volume 10 – More Sideman 1951 to 1954 ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), Early 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Great work from Lars Gullin as a sideman – most of it recorded during an early 50s stretch when it seemed like his baritone sax appeared on just about every jazz record in Sweden! Given Lars' strength as a player, though, that's not a problem at all – as his tone, timing, and overall conception really helped shape the overall sound of jazz music in Northern Europe during the postwar years. The settings differ, but there's still a nicely unified feel to the record – partly given the cohesive ideas of the Swedish scene during this stretch, but also because Gullin's presence seems to tie things together too – almost all on his own at the bottom end of the sound of these tunes. Recordings include those by groups led by Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberg, Gosta Theselius, Lulle Elbojs, and Carl-Henrik Norin – plus a very nice session with singer Rita Reys, too! The package features a whopping 23 tracks in all – with titles that include "Not Really The Blues", "Giro", "Ablution", "Deed I Do", "Over The Rainbow", "Moon Over Miami", "Lady Estelle's Dream", "He's Funny That Way", "Norinism", and "Red Devil Blues".

Bobby HutchersonHighway One/Conception The Gift Of Love/Un Poco Loco ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1978/1979/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of incredible records from Bobby Hutcherson – two on CD for the first time ever! Highway One is a wicked post-Blue Note session from Bobby Hutcherson – one that's put together in a different way than his previous work, but still completely sublime throughout! The feel is almost to Hutcherson's earlier work what Woody Shaw's Columbia recordings were to his – tighter, with sharper production – yet still wonderfully soulful and with a strong sense of spirit. Key soloists include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and Hubert Laws on flute – and the record also features George Cables on acoustic and electric piano, Cedar Walton on acoustic piano, and Eddie Marshall on drums. Includes the lovely "Sweet Rita Suite", plus "Circle", "Secrets Of Love", and "Bouquet". Conception is a really beautiful album from Bobby Hutcherson – late in his 70s career, but handled with the soulful depth of his brilliant early 70s work on Blue Note! The group's got George Cables on piano and Eddie Marshall on drums, plus a bit of extra percussion work by Bill Summers – and they're augmented by some larger arrangements on a number of tracks, but in a way that never gets in the way of the core souful playing on the record. Cedar Walton put the whole thing together with a masterful talent – both leading, arranging, and producing – and Bobby's never sounded better carving out his message on vibes. Titles include "Remember To Smile", "No Siree Bob", "Dreamin", "Dark Side Light Side", and "Quiet Fire". Un Poco Loco is a surprisingly great album by Bobby Hutcherson – and like his other albums for Columbia, a record that manages to be smooth, yet still has an edge! The format's bigger and more ambitious than previous years, but it's also an extension of the modal soulful style he forged with Harold Land – a really stretched out approach to the vibes that differs nicely from his 60s work, and which has some really soulful touches throughout. The group features George Cables on electric and acoustic piano, John Abercrombie on guitar, and Peter Erskine on percussion – but the real strength of the set is Bobby, who slides between vibes and marimba with a skittish energy that really cracks a lot of life into the set. Titles include "Un Poco Loco", "Ivory Coast", "The Sailor's Song", "Ebony Moonbeams" and "I Wanna Stand Over There". CD

There's few groups cooler than I Marc 4 – one of the hippest forces in the Italian sound library studio scene of the 70s – ultra-hip, often-funky, and as groovy as groovy can be – even though these guys were continuously working behind the curtain, and never getting any sort of real exposure to the public! That hasn't stopped their music from becoming the stuff of legend, though – as over the years, material like this has rightly earned the group strong praise from legions of collectors – of both instrumental funk, funky jazz, and hip soundtrack material. Titles on this volume include "Drumming", "Key Board", "Sambalto", "Filter", "Geras", "Agora", "Mask", "Boxes", "Ballan", "Rita", and "Questions". LP, Vinyl record album

A revolutionary record from the great Thomas Mapfumo – his second album, recorded with his group Blacks Unlimited – and a record that really masters the sound he was working in at the time – mixing his electric guitar take on the native plucked mbira sound with more soul, funk and all around feverish grooves than most of his later work! The Shona lyricism, like the landmark Hokoyo LP, is literally the songs of struggle, important enough to have landed him in detention – but the sound is essentially soulful dance music – with melodies that sink to the bone. Incredibly important and incredibly groovy! Titles include "Shumba", "Hwahawa", "Mhondoro", "Tinodanana", "Nzwananai", "Rita", "Chitima Cherusununguko" and "Zimbabwe Yevatema". CD

The second set of madness from the legendary Os Mutantes – and like the first, an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer Rogerio Duprat, whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! The album's got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune – a playful pastiche that's partly postmodern, partly psychedelic, and still tremendously powerful decades later – even if you can't understand most of the lyrics! Styles are just about impossible to pin down, but that's what makes the record so unique and essential – and if you ever needed one album to convince you of the mindblowing energy taking place during the Tropicalia years, this one may well be it! A few tracks are written by Tom Ze, and titles include "Dom Quixote", "Dia 36", "Magica", "Rita Lee", "Algo Mais", "Qualquer Bobagem", and "Fuga No II". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound is very different than their early albums, but it's actually pretty darn great, if you dig 70's era Yes or ELP. This live set has them 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 prog albums. Titles include "Hey Tu", "Anjos Do Sul", "Sagitarios", and "Esquizofrenia". LP, Vinyl record album

Os MutantesTudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol (180 gram pressing) ... LP

Wild! This lost Mutantes LP fits in between Mutantes E Seus Cometas and the Mutantes Ao Vivo LP – and like the latter, it's got a very progressive feel! The band has changed membership (Rita Lee's no longer in the group), and it's clear that they've been listening to a lot of Yes – as you can hear in the very Rick Wakeman-esque keyboards of Tulio Mourao. The sound is still pretty groovy, though, although we should let you know that it's more prog-rock than avant-rock (which is how we might characterize their earlier stuff). There's lots of very tight jamming by the band, with hard guitar solos, spacey keyboards, and tight ensemble playing – a little bit like the early titles by Som Imaginario. Tracks include "Pitagoras", "Cidadao Da Terra", "Tudo Foi Feito Pelo Sol", "Desanuviar", and "Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Agua No Quintal". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithUnfinished Business ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good- ... $1.99
Mighty soulful business from the great Jimmy Smith – a set for Mercury Records that updates his sound slightly, yet also hits some classic Hammond lines too! Jimmy plays a bit of acoustic piano and keyboards in addition to his classic organ – and works here in a setting that's tightly arranged, yet mostly small combo – with work from Ray Crawford on guitar, Nolan Phillips on tenor and flute, and added percussion from Buck Clarke and Stephanie Spruill. Rhythms step along nicely in kind of a 70s take on 60s soul jazz modes – leaving lots of room for Jimmy to open up on his solos – but there's also a few other more ambitious moments, including a great take on "Serpentine Fire" arranged by Ronnie Foster – and a warmly wonderful "Stevie" – which is a suite of tracks dedicated to Stevie Wonder. Other titles include "8 Counts For Rita", "Blues For Charlie", "Until It's Time For You To Go", and "Norristown PA". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Charlie VenturaEast Of Suez ... LP
Regent, Late 40s. Very Good ... $2.99
A full Regent album of earlier Savoy singles cut by Charlie Ventura – all in that great mix of bop and swing he was known for at the time, with a really cool groove overall! A few of the cuts have vocals by Buddy Stewart – boppish, scatting vocals that really swing nicely – and the rest of the tracks are instrumental, graced with great tenor from Charlie, plus trombone by either Bill Harris or Kai Winding, trumpet from Buck Clayton or Charlie Shavers, and guitar from Bill DeArango. Titles include "Synthesis", "Sooth Me", "Blue Champagne", "Baby Baby All The Time", "Eleven Sixty", "CV Jam", and "Let's Jump For Rita". LP, Vinyl record album

Chet BakerThis Time the Dream's On Me – Chet Baker Quartet Live Volume 1 (Jazz Heritage pressing) ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Jazz Heritage, 1953/1954. Used ... $7.99
Excellent lost jazz work from Chet Baker! The CD combines 5 tracks from a never-before-heard live set recorded in 1953 at the Curran Theatre in LA, plus 9 more cuts from 1954 session that was issued on the long out-of-print LP Jazz At Ann Arbor. Both sessions feature Chet playing with pianist Russ Freeman, an amazingly understated player whose graceful darkness perfectly matches young Chet's sound on the trumpet. The pair are backed by Carson Smith on bass and either Larry Bunker or Bob Neel on drums – and the extended set's a wonderfully no-nonsense batch of jazz tunes that really sparkles in comparison with some of Baker's later live work. Titles include "All The Things You Are", "Maid In Mexico", "Lover Man", "My Funny Valentine", "Stella By Starlight", and "Russ Job". CD

Johnny CashAmerican III – Solitary Man ... CD
American, 2000. Used ... $1.99
Johnny's third record for American Recordings – and one of the best of his late career – again backed by members Tom Petty and members of his Heartbreakers and other smart players, with a mix of hard scrabble country and folk cuts, and Cash's authoritative, soulful covers of great songs by Will Oldham, Nick Cave, Neil Diamond and others. It's brilliant stuff, and a mix of darkness and more tender material, coming at a time when Johnny's health was going, but his spiritual integrity was a strong as ever. It's dark, but never bleak – which is hard trick pull off! Johnny was the man to do it. Includes "I Won't Back Down", "Solitary Man", "That Lucky Old Sun", "Field Of Diamonds", what we'd consider the definitive version of Johnny's own "Country Trash", "I'm Leaving Now" with the great Merle Haggard, "Wayfaring Stranger", "(Would You Lay With Me) In A Field Of Stone", "One", his amazing version Oldham's "I See A Darkness", "The Mercy Seat" and more.

Columbia/Jazz Heritage, 1959. Used ... $6.99
Deep and bluesy work from the all-star Ellington group of the late 50s – a beautifully recorded album that moves way past the simple cliche of its title! The set features a host of original tunes from Duke Ellington and other members of the group – and players include Jimmy Hamilton on tenor, Ray Nance on trumpet, Matthew Gee on trombone, and the wonderful Johnny Hodges on alto – playing here at the peak of his later powers. Titles include "Three J's Blues", "Smada", "C Jam Blues", "Sweet & Pungent", "Blues In Blueprint", "The Swinger's Jump", and "Blues In Orbit". CD

Isis Giraldo Poetry ProjectPadre ... CD
Jazz The New Chapter (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $14.99
A beautiful project in which singer Isis Giraldo works with poems penned by her father – Ruben Dario Giraldo – and transforms the words into these dark-tinged jazz tunes, with a quality that almost takes us back to some of the most experimental 70s work by singers like Sheila Jordan or Karin Krog! The approach here is a bit different, though – maybe even more focused on the voice, which sometimes includes contributions from other singers, joining in alongside Isis' lead – with instrumentation that includes trumpet, tenor, clarinet, cello, bass, and drums – plus piano from Giraldo. There's a vibrant sense of majesty that envelops the work as the album unfolds – and titles include "Tigre Y Paloma", "He Vivido", "Seforita", "Verde", "Trees", "Amigo", and "Ayer Y Hoy". CD

✨✧ Jimmy HeathGap Sealer ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Sublime early 70s work from Jimmy Heath – a record that shows that he was really stretching out with a new sound in the decade – even away from his better-known sides with The Heath Brothers! Jimmy plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax beautifully on the record – with a tone that's incredibly soulful, and even better-blown than his recordings of the 60s – a style that's got a new sense of spiritualism in the post-Coltrane years, one that really stretches out magnificently on the longer tracks in the set. The group's great too – and features Kenny Barron on both acoustic and electric piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, Tootie Heath on drums, and Mtume on percussion. Heath plays flute, soprano, and tenor – with a group that includes Kenny Barron, Bob Cranshaw, and Mtume. The group performs Mtume's "Alkebu-Lan (Land Of The Blacks)", plus "Heritage Hum", "Angel Man", "Sound For Sore Ears", and "Gap Sealer". LP, Vinyl record album

Impressions with Jerry ButlerFor Your Precious Love ... LP
Vee Jay, Late 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
The only full-length collection of early Impressions work for Vee Jay – mostly singles recorded in the late 50s for the label, brought together as a "with Jerry Butler" album during the early 60s! The set's not only Impressions numbers, but also features a few of Jerry's early solo tracks – still very much under the sway of his years in the group, with the Impressions often as backup vocals – and also featuring a fair bit of original tunes by Curtis Mayfield! Apart from big hits, there's some nice obscure numbers like "At The County Fair", "Lovers Lane", "Believe In Me", "Senorita I Love You", "Let Me Know", and "Young Lover" – plus more familiar tracks that include "The Gift Of Love" and "For Your Precious Love".

Tom JansDark Blonde ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99
A great little album from Tom Jans – an artist mostly known for a few key songs that other folks sing, but a surprisingly well-developed talent on this mid 70s album for Columbia! The album's maybe a bit too rootsy to be AOR, but also has a similar handling overall – very top-shelf production, which makes his well-penned songs sound even better. Jans has a nice sort of edge to his vocals – a wryness that really fits his words – and the quality and obscurity of the set serve as a great reminder of how much great talent was hitting the big labels in the 70s, but never got the exposure they were due. Titles include "Ready To Roll", "Distant Cannon Fire", "Rosarita", "Back On My Feet Again", "Starlight", and "Bluer Than You". CD

Jazzanova & OthersRemixes 2006 to 2016 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 27.99
Jazzanova are maybe best remembered for their early Compost Records releases from the German scene – tracks that really helped reintroduce jazz and Brazilian modes to the contemporary dancefloors back in the 90s! In the years since those now-classic releases, Jazzanova have moved more strongly towards a role as remixers, lending their strong sense of history and sonic depth towards a range of other artists – often with an approach that really transforms the original tune, and makes the whole thing feel like a fresh Jazzanova track! This collection of work from a decade in the studio really lives up as a strong testament to that role – and showcases the Jazzanova touch on sublime cuts that include "Ordinary Guy (Jazzanova rework ext version)" by Joe Bataan, "Naze (Jazzanova rmx)" by Spinning Motion, "Believer (Jazzanova rmx)" by Paul Randolph, "Skybreaks (Jazzanova rmx)" by Heritage Orchestra, "Parallels (Jazzanova serial rmx)" by Atjazz with Dawne B, "Listen To The Drums (Jazzanova rmx)" by Outlines, "Dimentica Domani (Jazzanova rmx dub)" by Malika Ayane, and "Stimela (Jazzanova rmx)" by Hugh Masekela.

Waylon JenningsHonky Tonk Heroes ... LP
Fat Possum, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Textbook 70s country badassery from Waylon Jennings! This is one of the most defining moments of the outlaw era, the record which pretty much drew a line in the sand between Waylon Jennings and the Nashville establishment. Billy Joe Shaver's pen and Waylon's authoritative voice marks this as one the strongest country albums of the era, if not ever, both in song quality and pure backbone. Greatness! Includes the barnstorming title track, "Old Five And Dimer (Like Me)", "Omaha", "You Asked Me To", "Ride Me Down Easy", "Black Rose", "We Had it All", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
